Claudia Sahm: "We should have a recession,” John H. Cochrane said in November [2008], speaking to students and investors. “People who spend their lives pounding nails in Nevada need something else to do.” #yikes...

Scott Gosnell: I was there... 1/
.... I may even have a recording down in the archives and may have sprained my eyes I rolled them so hard.

...Brad DeLong: What! Really? Tell me more… I mean, private housing construction as a share of GDP had crashed from its peak of 5.0% of GDP in 2005Q4 through its... 2/
...historical average of 3.4% in 2007Q2, and had bottomed all the way down to 2.1% by 2008Q4, when Cochrane was opining about too many people pounding nails in Nevada. How was it possible to say such a thing? How could he avoid looking at graphs like this one... 3/ Image

I sent an email labeled "Media Inquiry" to Josh and Vlad, as well as Support, at Robinhood on 2/5 for comment on my story. This is what I got back today. Japanese characters seem to be "wisdom" and "value." #Yikes Image
This is the newsletter story from more than a week ago that Robinhood did not comment on. thedig.substack.com/p/robinhoods-c…
I just got another email from Robinhood Support because I have not yet sent them the last four digits of my #SS and my birth date. Image

1/ Thread on @adam3us because he's the head of @Blockstream ; an organization that he created as a power grab over #Bitcoin to subvert its direction into a money making machine to salvage all of his previously failed experiments in crypto. @zooko is his student.
2/ We already know about 'hashcash', everyone talks about it all the time. But do you all know about 'Zero Knowledge Systems'?

That's a company he co-founded *way back when* with Sammy Hill

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_Know…
2a/ Curiously, the former CEO of Blockstream (before Adam Back), was Austin Hill - the same Austin Hill from the Zero Knowledge System company that they had created with one another.

My journey to my #PhD program was an absolute #strugglebus. I graduated with a 2.75 GPA from @GeorgiaTech. Most grad applicants have a 3.5 or higher. #Yikes

I applied anyway 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️ (I didn't get admitted into any programs - post bacc, M.S., or PhD) #AcademicChatter
Fortunately, my mentor @RaquelLieberman gave me the opportunity to work as a #research technician in her lab for 2 yrs to gain the experience I needed for grad school.

This is when I first started studying essential pathways that we could disrupt to kill disease causing bacteria
After working in her lab for almost 2 years..I reapplied again. This time I felt VERY confident I was ready for the #PhD.

I was denied admission to every single grad program I applied to (including the one I'm in now).

My college sweetie became an #addiction expert. At his funeral, dozens said he saved their lives. He wrote this about his brother's struggle. I was in the studio. He laid down every track but the drums in 1 take. 5-min dueling guitars start at min 4. soundclick.com/artist/default…
@twtr_is_dumb Listening to Howie's old tracks reminds me of The Other End. I couldn't get them to stop putting up "Jill, Howie, & the Rain" signs. Like showbills for "Yoko Ono & 4 guys from England." #yikes Hope you're staying safe!
ps Ike: That's a really creepy picture of Howie, don't you think?

Good morning! Here's David Victor talking about carbon capture and storage as if we knew it already worked, and praising oil and gas giants for investing in it, as if they were spending real money on climate mitigation.

Yes, I realize he calls "Northern Lights" a "model," but then he says that it "IS a network of CCS systems," not that it "WOULD BE" such a network. Slippery!
Oh look, here he is in the next paragraph praising his funder BP for "building hydrogen networks."

How extensive are these "networks"? How much money is BP spending on them? He doesn't say. Image

I'm about to start live tweeting THE LAS VEGAS STORY on @tcm. Watch along for trivia tidbits, thirst gifs and more! #TCMParty
I've never seen this movie, because when I was writing my book SEDUCTION: SEX, LIES AND STARDOM IN HOWARD HUGHES'S HOLLYWOOD, I couldn't find a copy. But I still wrote had to write around it, because of the role it played in Hughes's response to the Hollywood blacklist...
The screenplay was initially written by Paul Jarrico, an Oscar-nominated screenwriter who was also an open member of the Communist party. When Jarrico was subpoenaed by HUAC, Hughes fired him

[Thread] 1/ I downloaded around 22,000 Twitter interactions between today and 1st April. I searched for anyone mentioning the terms "5g" AND "Corona". I was interested after reading about the latest conspiracies that 5g is causing corona, or rather Corona is cover for 5g...
2/ I want to talk about this network graph a little. Essentially for those unfamiliar with these or my threads, the nodes (circles) are Twitter accounts, the lines between the accounts (edges) are interactions, whether tweets, replies, RTs, mentions. Usually a large cluster
3/ like the green and pinks you see mean some is getting retweeted a lot, or replied to a lot. Anyway I just wanted to explain the network a little more. That big p ink cluster is largely people retweeting @wizkhalifa. He tweeted the attached screenshot. I dunno what it means

I mean really 😂
Got a thread on it that ends here:

There are some additional nuances by state, but that should get him mostly up-to-speed

Basically, yes. It's not an affirmative defense but it will be an argument they make in their briefs, based on the evidence that comes out during discovery or affidavits that get filed

That language is more signaling than legal effect though

This was already addressed mid-thread. You do realize filing lawsuits costs money to the court, yes?

Not getting paid != going into the hole paying the court costs

The goat's still waiting...

There are a few options. Provide evidence he wasn't there or X wasn't there, or depose X and challenge X's credibility (history of lying, etc), or provide evidence X is lying (emails, texts, etc), or get on the stand to say "that's false" and pray

They're too dim to realize ppl find out about the GFMs *because* they were shared on Twitter

.@RepMarkMeadows begins CPAC with this rip-roarer: "You know, with this Green New Deal, they're trying to get rid of all the cows. But I've got good news -- Chick-fil-A stock will go way up because we gonna be eating more chicken!"
Meadows mischaracterizes Cohen's testimony, falsely says he said there's "no evidence of collusion" when in fact he just said he doesn't know of any.

These dudes are completely dishonest.
Mark Meadows does not have a future in comedy: "They may call you deplorable, but most people will call you adorable patriots, alright?

It's been a little over a month since I got back from #LivingLaVidaLagos and even though I am still missing it like crazy (someone yell "like CRAZY!"), I feel ready to share some of my experiences; the good, the bad & the neutral.

Lagos, THANK YOU for a truly wonderful time ❤.
One of the best things that I did? I went to the opera 💃! Y'all, did you know there's opera in Lagos? And I don't mean 'good enough for Lagos' opera. I mean, proper, 'beautiful, well-trained instruments', opera! I watched #DonGiovanni at the #MusonCenter.
I also loooved Fela's Shrine. I actually went twice; on the day I arrived & again for #Felabration2018. You guys, it was so much fun! I ended up abandoning my people and going up front to dance with the King!

NEXT UP: #4 Tasmanian Devil vs. #13 Ghost Bast #2018MMM
The ghost bat (Macroderma gigas) gets its name from the Greek "macros"=large and "derma"=skin #2018MMM
Hopefully you didn't confuse our competitor with the south american bats of a similar name (genus Diclidurus, way more fuzzy) #2018MMM
