I have questions about the last position and timing. The last raw APRS packet shows it here at 11:23:06 UTC. ImageImageImage
I guess I’m lost here! The APRS data has the last packet ~5 hours ago Feb 16th. The shoot down over Yukon was Feb 11th? The altitude shows 960.12m Image

NEW: @SecDef Lloyd Austin says additional unidentified objects shot down over North America over the weekend "do not present a military threat to anyone on the ground"

"They do however present a risk to civil aviation & potentially an intelligence collection thread"
"We'll get to the bottom of it" on unidentified object shots down in the past week plus, per @SecDef after landing in #Brussels with mtgs w/@NATO counterparts & the #Ukraine contact group
Per @SecDef, the priority for @DeptofDefense is "debris recovery so that we can get a better sense of what these object are"

• 1913, you required us to have a permit to carry a handgun.
We complied. There was no discernible reduction in violent crime.
• 1920, you required us to have a permit to possess any firearm, regardless of where it was stored.
We complied. There was no discernible reduction in violent crime.

My name is Dylan Blaskey, and I am a PhD student of Civil Engineering @CUEngineering and a research assistant @INSTAAR. I have spent my whole life around #Rivers and now I am researching them with @RiversArctic!

#ClimateChange | #RHRNClimate ImageImage
My work evaluates climate change impacts on #Arctic rivers, ice transportation corridors, fish, and Indigenous communities by weaving together observations, modeling, and Indigenous Knowledges. Find out more about @RiversArctic at colorado.edu/research/arcti…
My team recognizes the validity of #Indigenous knowledge and the right of these communities to shape research that occurs in their homelands. Because of this, an Indigenous Advisory Council guides all of our project’s communication, research design, analysis, deliverables. Image

Rivers carry the living impressions of civilisations that have settled on their banks since the dawn of time, are home for unique flora and fauna. How can we better understand and protect them? #Vigilife has launched the #30sentinelrivers program with #eDNA. A thread 1/n ImageImage
By building an international network of partners and sharing #eDNA know-how, #Vigilife is establishing long term #monitoring programs, which will become a precious tool for safeguarding freshwater biodiversity.
1. The #Amazon: born out of the drying up of an inland sea, I am one of the longest rivers in the world. Together with my tributaries, I contain nearly 20% of the #biodiversity of all the rivers on earth and play an essential role in the global water cycle. Image

Minister @BruceRalston gave @MA_BC a million dollars to produce a road map that has a copy edit at the top of page 4 - OUR DESINTATION. Given NGOs and community groups were left out of the “engagement” on this, how about we suggest a few other edits. 1/

Start of report: “More than 150 years ago, our industry helped build our province’s cities and towns.” Given how good you claim to be on Indigenous relations, did you ask some nations what they think about this statement? @tsilhqotin @Stkemlups_SSN @Sneena01 @CarrierSekani? 2/
Painting our colonialist history with nostalgia & industriousness erases the reality of the past. Up to 90% of Indigenous communities were wiped out from smallpox brought with the second wave of the Gold Rush. BC has no treaties in part b/c Trutch placed his bets on 100%... 3/

1 of every 5 Cdns w/ C19 in long-term, personal care & retirement homes has died

🧵
I'm simplifying these threads & will now show sliding window views of last 3 months of cumulative data for whole epidemic (except for province-specific summaries at end).

Rate of change graphs are provided for preceding 28 days to give a better sense of most recent dynamics.
Please note that though it's tempting to speculate about recent trends for long-term/personal care & retirement homes, reporting for this sector is VERY delayed & is almost always incomplete for preceding 3-4 weeks. The period of uncertainty is now highlighted in gray in graphs.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

For each #Province and #Territory in #Canada, here is the help that was offered to those living with #disabilities. This will include the #Federal help offered as well as any hoops #PWDs may have needed to jump through to get it and whether CERB was clawed back or not.
This is based on my own research, and if anyone sees anything I missed or may have gotten wrong please let me know.
Let's start with #Yukon
According to several articles, eligible families on #disability supports we're to get up to $400 to help with costs until August. Unknown what eligibility was.
#CERB was exempt from clawbacks.

#Pictou’s George Mercer Dawson led the expedition that surveyed the intern'l boundary between Alaska and Yukon. The expedition left Ottawa on April 22, 1887 and traveled into the Yukon’s wild, remote country to record its geography, geology, botany, native languages and legends. Image
Even though Dawson endured frail health most of his life – he had Pott’s disease, aka tuberculosis of the spine - he carried out some of the most strenuous surveys attempted in #Canada and did more than anyone else to create a modern map of the Canadian West.
