🧵Harsh realities of Baseball Parents: The Journey is filled with ups and downs. Here are a few (of MANY) of the mistakes I made as a baseball Dad...
🧵 Your High School athlete is going to have days of social stress. You cannot see it, you will not here it, most of all you probably won't recognize it. The stress of a teenager, girls, friends, schoolwork, weight of expectations are burdening the student athlete play a role
🧵Your student athlete is going through a massive physical and mental maturation. While they may look like an adult, in reality they are still a child. They will make mistakes that will make you scratch your head but from mistakes come a learning opportunity..

Over a year ago, several brilliant people at #EleutherAI started plugging VQGAN and CLIP together and getting it to generate images. By now there are many variations and adaptations of the technique out there, but for various reasons the OG paper is only just coming out
Huge props to @RiversHaveWings, @dashstander, @EricHallahan, @lcastricato, and the many other people who have iterated on and popularized this technique. I came rather late to the party, and mostly made sure that the experiments happened and their great work was showcased
@RiversHaveWings @dashstander @EricHallahan @lcastricato VQGAN-CLIP has really taken on a life of its own, getting picked up and modified in Jupiter notebooks shared on Twitter, Instagram, and other social media platforms

#ReadingFC 2020/21 financial results covered a season when the #Royals finished 7th in the Championship, just missing out on the play-offs under Veljko Paunovic, since replaced by Paul Ince and Michael Gilkes (interim managers). Some thoughts in the following thread.
This was the fourth season that #ReadingFC were under the control of Chinese businessman Dai Yongge (and his sister Dai Xiu Li), who own 96% via Renhe Sports Management Co Ltd. However, in that time the club has struggled both on the pitch and with Financial Fair Play rules.
#ReadingFC loss narrowed from £42m to £36m, despite revenue dropping £4.0m (23%) from £17.8m to £13.8m and profit on player sales falling £0.9m to £0.7m, thanks to an £11.2m (18%) reduction in operating expenses from £61.3m to £50.2m.

Bit of a thread...

I live in Toxteth, a deprived area of Liverpool.

I've just been out walking, on my way to the shop, when an old lady called out to me:

"Hey luv, do you know where I go for the thingy?"

"For what, luv?"

#The thingy, in your arm"
"Oh! The vaccination centre? For your vaccination? It's just there, go left at the sign".

"Is it on this side?" She asked me.

I looked properly at the lady and it was pretty obvious that she couldn't see a thing. She had no glasses.

"Come on, luv. I'll take you there".
"Hasn't the weather been awful?" She said to me as we walked the fifty yards to the centre.

"Yes, it's cold, isn't it?" I replied.

I was dressed in a warm bubble jacket and had a Nepalese woollen bobble hat on. This lady must have been 80.

@SkyDance62 @ACTBrigitte I didn't say they did

I pointed out that the #FirstAmendment isn't the issue

i. It is or should be a Self-Evident Truth

ii. That Americans are born equal (eg to @jack)

iii. Are endowed with certain #InalienableRights

iv. *AMONG* those are #LIBERTY & #PURSUITofHAPPINESS.... ImageImageImageImage
@SkyDance62 @ACTBrigitte @jack v. Communicating with society is a basic #Liberty which provides #Happiness

vi. Whole #Twitter model & algorithms based on not just satisfying but promoting & encouraging those to addictive levels

v. So censoring banning or cancelling people causes EXTREME withdrawal symptoms ImageImageImageImage
@SkyDance62 @ACTBrigitte @jack vi. So Twitter is not just denying #Liberty & #PursuitOfHappiness but actively CREATING UNhappiness

vii. But #FirstAmendment doesn't JUST say "Congress shall make no law.. abridging #FreedomOfSpeech"

viii. #FirstAmendment VERY SPECIFICALLY LITERALLY SAYS:

"#THEFreedomOfSpeech" ImageImageImageImage

Respect to every athlete’s right - no matter their politics - to use their platform & speak their mind. Doesn’t mean we have to mindlessly applaud their every utterance. That’s patronizing and as bad as “shut up & dribble.” So in that spirit, Kyrie is absolutely wrong here. (1/2)
After hundreds of thousands of deaths, which have disproportionately hit working people, true solidarity is getting #the damn vax. For someone who has offered solidarity to Palestinians, Indigenous people & BLM, he is now taking a position that’s the negation of solidarity.(2/3)
This is why Ted Cruz and Trump Jr. are cheering Kyrie on. They don’t believe in the concept of public health and don’t care if millions die. They’ll be in Cancun while people die needlessly in overstuffed hospitals. Kyrie has a platform to make a difference. He is doing harm.

#The, God No Go Shame Us Slang"

I have often heard this in so many instances, "God No Go Shame Us..."

First thing first, God shames no one, and has never shamed anyone.

The only fellows or gang God ever public shamed was satan and his goons

Colossians 2v15 NIV
And having
disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.e (Col 2:15|NIV-)

Colossians 2:15 MSG
He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe of their sham authority at the Cross and marched them naked through the streets
Colossians 2:15 AMP
[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].

It is not in God to shame anyone, rather, poor decisions, poor actions, poor

Twitter is the most powerful social media platform in the world.

However, most people don't know how to use it effectively.

Here are 10 tips that will help you master Twitter...
1/ Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Your Twitter profile is your new business card.

People should be able to quickly understand who you are and what you have to offer.

Pick your banner photo purposefully.

And have a link in your bio so people can learn more about you.

Example:
2/ Content Is King But Format Is Queen

Spacing and formating matters.

When making a list, put the shorter words on top and the longer ones on the bottom.

Bad:

• Banana
• Apple
• Blueberry

Better:

• Apple
• Banana
• Blueberry

(PS: Press alt + 8 for bullet points)

An excellent debunking by @MickWest.
However, the wizards of disinformation have a follow-up maneuver now. What they will do is *actually* insert a "dead cat microphone" into a breaking video which does not originally have one of those microphones.
They will move fast to use the altered video with an inserted dead-cat-mic in highly targeted, 1-to-1 end-to-end encrypted ephemeral messaging (like WhatsApp or disappearing Signal messaging)...
in order to quickly show the altered breaking news video to target persuadables who are on-the-fence about whether or not the media can be trusted and are not tech savvy enough to have any chance of actually preserving or saving the video they are shown.

Project your own atrociousness onto the adversary. Cast it far. Cast it wide. Those who act in parallel with yourself toward the same ends will recognize from a concentrated view of the aggregate picture.
Relentlessly attack the character of anyone who speaks this truth to the public. For surely they speak insanity.

The enslaved masses must never be taught how to read that which is projected upon and past them.

They are matte screen to be used and blinded by any illumination.

***Conflict Of The Chosen***
There is always a conflict when God singles you out

#the conflict in Mary's life

The challenge of being chosen is a calling to a life of conflicts.

when you are chosen, you are chosen to do His will.
2
(Luke 1:29 & 30) “But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying (conflict begins!), and considered what manner of greeting this was.”30 Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.”

•to be chosen creates conflicts.
3.
“Conflict” means a clash of two or more things. ,in this context, clash of two natures.

Mary was not the only virgin of her day.

God could have called any of the virgins of her days, but God chose Mary.

She did not ask to be chosen.

She had to face shame,

Part 2 (kindly look up part 1 on my timeline. Tweeted it this morning)

#The Spider and It's Web.(from the archives)

Lessons -Part 2

Isaiah 59:5, 6 KJV
They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web..Their webs shall not become garments.... ImageImageImage
2.
Isaiah 59:6 NKjV
The spider webs are no good for shirts or shawls. No one can wear these weavings! They weave wickedness, they hatch violence.

The "spider or perhaps the "enemy" in this passage seem to have the capacity to weave certain unwanted garments.
3.
However, many people have been covered with all manner of evil webs and many are not even aware. A few that are even aware, are unable to get out. They have been at the mercy of the "spider"

Sadly, many people have their measurements taken by d "spider" with the intention
