.@GayleKing found this video heartwarming. Perhaps it is. I for one, see it as a possibility that there have been white racist provocateurs in the #GeorgeFloydProtests
they are a noxious lot that @CBSNews hasn't examine sufficiently

@szirinsky should take a look at all of this, too

Por repartir en papel este artículo de opinión en comisaría criticando determinados mandos policiales retrógrados, me veo obligado, tras desestimar la @policia mi recurso, a acudir a la vía jurisdiccional, en forma de contencioso.
Le dan la forma que quieren para silenciarnos.
Estoy comprobando en propia persona como los mecanismos internos de la DGP, supuestamente de defensa de los derechos de l@s policías, en realidad son una fachada, para siempre barrer para casa. Casi nunca (por no decir NUNCA) ven acoso y no entran en profundidad en los casos.
La vía jurisdiccional es lenta (la justicia si no es rápida no es justicia) y a eso se agarran porque enfrentarte a la maquinaria supone años, paciencia y generalmente no responden los responsables de las ignominiosas campañas de desprestigio y defenestración profesional.

It is a desperate pitched #battle that #humanity is waging to stop the deadly advance of the #coronavirus.

Since its appearance in #Wuhan #China three months ago, the pandemic has infected one million people and killed 50,000, on a planet inhabited by 6 billion human beings.
Much of the world's population today is #besieged in cities, entrenched in their homes, as an extreme measure to escape the #plague & save lives.

We’re living, without a doubt, a time of tension & psychological crisis, while science, in a fight against the clock, is looking in
medicine for a solution to the challenges of the #pandemic.

The coronavirus is telling the world, in all shades, that #life is more important than #capital, because without life there is no factory.

Salvation is in human #solidarity and not in the perversity of Donald #Trump,

¿Cuántas veces has visto a #Ofelia en el #cine, en #televisión, en #fotografía? Me refiero a la Ofelia del #Hamlet de #Shakespeare, en concreto la versión pintada por #Millais!
Muchas más de las que pensáis, por ejemplo en Twink Peaks de David #Lynch.

Abro hilo #TwitterCultural
El director Lars #VonTrier se ha inspirado en la #Ofelia de #Shakespeare y en el cuadro #prerrafaelita de #Millais en varias ocasiones:
- Dogville 2003
- Anticristo 2009
- Melancolía 2011, en concreto en este film el paralelismo visual con el cuadro de #Millais es extraordinario!
¿Y si #Ofelia no es una mujer? La Ofelia de #Hamlet es una mujer enloquecida por una lucha interna entre el amor y la obediencia familiar/social en contra y muere/se suicida, "llevada por la corriente". Un #gay puede identificarse con ella, y Anthony #Gayton lo fotografió.

OK, since I've pretty much finished 80% of the content on #Netflix, #PrimeVideo and #DisneyPlus (4 kids), I figured I'd take a break to share my all-time favorite movies about #publicrelations and #journalism. I hope it proves a worthy #bingewatch for you ...
Top 20 in reverse order, starting with No. 20 ...
#PhoneBooth (2003). An arrogant #PR guy spends an entire movie in a phone booth. Yes, I know there's no such thing as phone booths anymore. But if you're in PR and you're feeling a little claustrophobic these days, you'll relate.
19. #TheWizardofOz (1939). This foursome trudges all the way to Oz, kills the witch on wizard's orders, then finds out the wizard is a fraud. Somehow he recovers from this potentially career-ending discovery by giving his visitors a handful of trinkets and a speech. That's #PR.

The world will become less transparent. Less light 💡 .

A terrible thing.

IMO the advertising model was was doomed with the growth of the Internet. Too many have clung to the click model, then the paywall model that sets a price that is the same for regular people as it is

For the well off. When I was younger I subscribed to four papers. It was expensive then - a young person not making rock star money but it was doable.

For nearly everyone from bottom to middle that model eliminates our ability to stay informed - and I have always believed

in print #journalism over #television journalism. Especially the longer, heavy lifting, serial pieces.

In my community I have done what I can. I have enforced the public records act. I have reviewed and researched and collected massive amounts of documents and tips

I read this last night & found it so good that I read it twice & thrice & realized it’s #TooGoodNotToShare..

It’s Beautifully written and worth a read for understanding what life is all about..

A man who has gone out of his town comes back and finds that his house is on fire.
It was one of the most beautiful houses in the town, and the man loved the house the most!

Many people were ready to give double price for the house, but he had never agreed for any price and now it is just burning before his eyes.
And thousands of people have gathered, but nothing can be done, the fire has spread so far that even if you try to put it out, nothing will be saved.

He becomes very sad and tears start rolling down his eyes 👀

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.
