California city first in U.S. to officially back Palestinians, accuses Israel of ‘ethnic cleansing’
#Richmond, Calif. City Council voted early Wednesday to support the Palestinian people of the Gaza Strip with a resolution that accuses Israel of “ethnic cleansing and collective punishment” nearly three weeks after war broke out in the Middle East.
The resolution is believed to be the first rejection of Israel's actions by a U.S. city after the Oct. 7 attack carried out by Hamas on Israel.
Councilmember Cesar Zepeda cast the lone vote not to support the resolution, recognizing the issue as divisive.
“Let’s call out the atrocities that Hamas has done on the Israel communities and the atrocities the Israeli government has done on the Palestinian people,” Zepeda said, requesting a revised resolution. He said he wanted the city to “bring everyone together in a community for peace.”
Although a majority of speakers backed the council’s resolution, others disagreed with how the City Council broached the topic and language that was used.
The Jewish Community Relations Council in San Francisco condemned the city’s actions and in a statement said that, although the council had amended the resolution, it remained “inflammatory and biased.” The group also noted “the vitriol of resolution supporters” at the meeting.
The Arab Resource & Organizing Center in San Francisco thanked Richmond for taking a stance on the issue.
“We are you with you as the tide shifts across the US, as more decision makers echo the calls of the masses and rise up in support for Palestinian freedom,” the group said in a statement. “We have a long way to go, and we are proud that the Bay Area is leading the charge.”

Just look at these awesome #Rhododendron… pink as anything and oh so delicate, elegant in appearance.
I’ve seen many in white, too!
Most species are native to eastern Asia and the Himalayan region, but smaller numbers occur elsewhere in Asia, and in North America, Europe and Australia.
Fun fact; there exists, 1,024 different species of Rhododendron 😳🙌

The irony in the ‘Rich Men North of #Richmond’
“One of the most common misconceptions about Jim Crow is that it came directly out of the defeat of Reconstruction. But #JimCrow — a system of #WhiteSupremacist class rule — wasn’t a response to Reconstruction as much as it was a response to the aftermath of Reconstruction, when biracial coalitions of laboring men and their allies continued to vie for power and influence”

An Experiment to Fight Pandemic-Era Learning Loss Launches in #Richmond
The first question: Would kids show up in the middle of #summer for extra schooling?
“The cost of upgrading the #dikes that protect the low-lying #IsthmusOfChignecto and prevent Nova Scotia from becoming a defacto island: $300 million. The bill for #Richmond—the fourth-largest city in metropolitan #Vancouver, which includes the #VancouverInternationalAirport—to raise its own dikes against rising seas: $1 billion.”
216 years ago today, on Aug. 3, 1807, in #Richmond, #Virginia, Chief Justice #JohnMarshall opened the trial of former vice president #AaronBurr. The charge: #treason against the #UnitedStates. Burr was accused of plotting an armed insurrection against the government.

Can America’s Students Recover What They Lost During the Pandemic?
Disastrous test scores increasingly show how steep a toll the COVID-19 era exacted on students, particularly minorities.
Schools are grappling with how to catch up, and the experience of one city shows how intractable the obstacles are.
The field photography position would probably be like our architectural photography field team where a central dispatch directs where and what to shoot and it will be professionally monitored/managed. I.e. it will be work, no sitting in front of TacoBell all day.
Interns would need a transport and real camera and be reimbursed mileage.
Two people were killed and five others wounded on Tuesday during a shooting outside a high school graduation ceremony in #Richmond, Virginia, police said.
• 7 persons shot and numerous others injured in the "stampede" to escape at 5:15 PM US ET as people left the Hugenot HS graduation ceremony at the Altria Theater on the VCU campus in downtown Richmond.
• 3 persons have life-threatening injuries.
• Shooting ("about 20 consecutive shots") occurred Monroe Park adjacent to the theater.
• Richmond police said at a news conference that they have 2 persons in custody.

#NoelCounihan - "The High Mark" - 1947
Yesterday's #AFL season-opener was a knickergripper!
With barely a minute left, #Carlton were beating #Richmond by 6 points (which is what one goal gets you). They stormed forward, looking to seal the win, but gave the ball away. Quick as a flash, Richmond swept up the other end and scored to snatch a draw - rare in #AussieRules!
I'm in Richmond, VA and put out my own forecasts and weather alerts mostly for the #RVA #Richmond area but also the broader central VA and Mid-Atlantic as well. (See link to my Substack in my profile)
I'm Chris. I'm 44. I grew up around #Atlanta and at 25 moved to #Houston then #Manhattan and #WashingtonDC and back to Houston. I call all of those places "home". Now my husband @troy and I live near #Richmond, #Virginia with our 2 #Dachshunds - Loki and Jarvis. We both work from home. I worked in #broadcasting #IT for 20 years and now work in #legal IT. My favorite place on Earth is #Apple Park in Cupertino. Other tags that apply: #LGBT #ISTJ and #Introvert.
There's an historic 5-room bed-and-breakfast in *the middle of the Bay*, overseen by the city of Richmond, CA, and they are looking for new innkeepers.

These are moon rocks. Found on the Dinosaur Trail QLD.
If you look at the first rock you can see a fossilised Ammonite shell and also some small mussel type shells.
They grow from a "seed" possibly a fossil or bit of sand. The end result is like concrete. Well preserved fossils can be found in the centres of some.
The moon rocks here are large boulders. They grow into all different sizes.
