Welcoming PM Narendra Modi’s proposal to host COP33 in 2028, the union minister said India’s repositioning at the ongoing UN climate summit shows greater responsibility towards future generations

Thanks for the suggested additions to my list of places I can go explore and walk in #Canberra and the #ACT when I can't think of any - here's the revised Openoffice Writer format document if you'd like a copy.
The moon was so beautiful rising over the mountains yesterday afternoon driving home from Maryland. He'll be full on Sunday night/ Monday morning, around 4:15 am: The Full Beaver Moon!

Late night soft shoe
doing my best Fred Astaire..
Using the stars to navigate
the eternal nocturnal stage..
Just when I finally find
the elusive celestial groove..
I trip over that moonbeam again
all the while pretending
my stumble was part of the #act ..
Fortunately for me
this was a scene
in the middle of nowhere..
So only the darkness bore witness
to yet another embarrassment
in my life
of perpetual awkwardness
"This is Novĵerzio & when you play my joint, you're just another #act," the promoter said.
"You got it," David said, as Sssindy & the Better Angelsss took the stage.
During the performance, in the middle of an old PuzzyCure song, there was a series of loud bangs. The Angels whipped out their devices & activated their soldier modules. They formed a defensive cordon around Sssindy & hustled her off the stage.
"Kill that spotlight," Zaza ordered. "Kill it!"

#Troubles #Legacy #Act to be challenged at Belfast High Court
<< it will not be fast, but this challenge will succeed.
There is no way to square letting some #NI murderers & torturers go free for the political convenience of English politicians with ECHR Article 6 (right of access to a court) and Article 13 (right to an effective remedy). Plus, regardless of Tory desires or UK legislation, the ECHR applies in NI through the GFA.
Staggering ruling today from AZ & 8th Circuit, ignoring generations of precedent. They'd never admit it, but this is legislating from the bench to prevent people from challenging laws so you can keep them down where you want them. Definitely headed to SCOTUS.

Expressing concern over narcotics smuggling taking place from across the Line of Control, the DGP said the might of law enforcement agencies will be combined to target the "wholesale" dealers. "We will go after the big fish"

Every story about our new #coalition govt. Is the same:
Seymour trying his best to get Peters to respond to a text messages while telling everyone how they're best friends
#BusinessDad Luxon: Trying to get the kids to stop fighting long enough for a family photo
Peters ignoring everyone because he accidentally put his phone on silent and he's not really that interested anyway

“A man’s possibilities are the heights to which he should climb. They are inherent in his own nature. Possibility fulfils itself whenever any individual makes it actual. The effect of any such act is to create the ineffable joy which accompanies the satisfaction of the ache resulting from the sense of imperfection.”
A list of places in The Australian Capital Territory #ACT specifically designed to shit unconfidant spellers to absolute tears:
Queanbeyan (honorary next-door inclusion)
I've been following this wombat rescue group for years and have given to them several times. They do good work, and their planned sanctuary will save a lot of wombat lives. I know that there are lots of places that need money right now, but a little cash here will go a long way and do much good.
ACT scores dropping shouldn’t come with a surprise honestly. Look at the current state our education system is and what they’re trying to push on our children instead of actually educating them on stuff they can carry out beyond graduation.
#academics #education #usa #act
ACT test scores fall to lowest levels in 32 years, per Axios:…
"My call for love, #hope and #advocacy may be unnerving for some ecologists; may bristle against our deeply ingrained training as objective, #reductionist and dispassionate observers; and may be viewed balefully by #editors who guard against any expression of feeling in their #journals, any hint of doubt about #scientific respectability. ...we are living in a #world besieged by increasing #crisis; we need the courage to #act...".
#ACT test scores for U.S. students drop to a 30-year low
The average ACT composite score for U.S. students was 19.5 out of 36. Students in the #ClassOf2023 whose scores were reported Wednesday were in their first year of high school when the virus reached the U.S. The average scores in #reading, #science and #math all were below benchmarks the ACT says students must reach to have a high probability of success in first-year #college courses.

"My favourite economist... is Milton Friedman."
Brooke van Velden, ACT candidate for Tamaki
After about 4 decades of running large scale experiments to test Friedman's theories, every one of them has turned out to be delusional nonsense;
The fact that this charlatan is still taken seriously enough by academics to be taught in a university level economics program is truly disturbing.
ACT are selling Nicole McKee differently this year. She's no longer the NZ rep for the NRA... (thoughts & prayers) but she has picked up a 2020 award for "Communicator of the Year".
Gee. Sounds impressive, until you realise it's from Blackland PR -- dirty tricks for hire. Or in this case, giving an award to your client to soften her gun-nut exterior.
Remember, she thinks AR-15s should be legally available.
My goodness. ACT's Port Waikato candidate, Neil Christensen has just died on the campaign trail.
Party votes in that electorate will count on Saturday, but a byelection will be run after the election to decide the electorate vote.
Another day and another ACT candidate exposes his racist interior. This time it's their Dunedin candidate Tim Newman, a salesman for a plumbing company. He's 53rd on ACT's list.
"[ACT leader David] Seymour says repeatedly that people (he means Māori, of course) shouldn’t have 'different rights based on ancestry'. This is typically simple, clever and deceptive...
The answer is that there there is a crucial difference between rights, which are universal, and tools to fulfil rights, which are always based on varying circumstances."
David Seymour admitted that having 10,000 people in prison, costs the public $7 per week for every man, woman, and child in the country. That's a lot to spend.
Especially when it's well known that people who spend time in prison are more likely to reoffend, and to commit more serious crimes when they do, than when the criminal justice system responds in other ways (eg restorative justice).
The lack of gun registry - until June 2024 this year - was a big part of why people were able to get guns so easily for committing violent crimes. ACT say want to crack down on organised crime. So why do they want to abolish the gun registry?
Could it be that their crackdown on gangs isn't really about preventing violent crime?
I suspect they have 2049 in mind as the year they'll think about making changes.
Meanwhile, here's Seymour announcing he'll chuck out anything to do with climate spending. He's such a dick.
Andrea Vance uncovers yet another ACT candidate with full-on conspiracist credentials. He's Simon Angelo, he's standing in Whangaparāoa and he's an awful human being.
Vance then looks at ACT's flawed candidate selection process which is described as "pre-determined" with Seymour making the calls himself.
When politicians play with cookers, someone's bound to get burnt.
For those who need to know:
ACT Wildlife is replacing soon-to-be-illegal fruit nets with the legal ones. Take them your old ones and they will replace them.
They have also Failed Their Advertising. The only reason I know about this is that my sister and mother dragged me out there with their carload of old nets a couple of weekends ago.
Details here in the link:
During #GOP whip's meeting, Rep. Mike Lawler of NY told colleagues he is willing to support a so-called #DischargePetition – a procedural mechanism to force a floor vote on a bill & circumvent leadership – to move a short-term #spending bill if their #Republican plan stalls.
+ it was mentioned during a meeting w/elected leadership in #McCarthy's office that there’s a group of members talking about moving a temporary funding bill w/ #Democrats if other members are unwilling to #act….
Everyone concerned about TERF victimisation and shutting down of #FreeSpeech which is supported by, #NZPol #ACT Party leader and supposed champion of free speech, David Seymour, should watch this episode of Alice Sneddon's BAD NEWS about trans exclusionary radical feminists in #NewZealand.
Note the location on the left v right axis of NZ Greens and Te Pāti Māori. Both positioned towards the far left in comparison to the most far right cooker, racist and dangerous party in #NewZealand history, #ACT, who are positioned closer to the center. This #NZPol Vote Compass by TVNZ is obviously another #NZMedia disinformation disgrace.
90% of #NewZealand will benefit financially and collectively with NZ Greens tax policies. Probably why they barely get a mention by the #NZMedia, complicit in destroying our planet's future, despite polling higher than David Seymour's #ACT Party who are constantly being promoted.
I guess that's what being financed by those profiteering from unsustainable carbon emitting businesses gets you. #NZTwits being convinced to vote against their own interests. #NZPol #VoteGreen
Toby Manhire looks into Act MP Mark Cameron's Twitter account and finds disturbing things.
Never heard of him? He's number seven on Act's list and we're all likely to be paying his salary soon.
"The ACT Party says it will allow builders to opt out of council building consents to improve the supply, quality and cost of housing."
But a law made for cowboy builders will not lead to better quality homes. Which insurers will underwrite Seymour's unconsented houses? Would banks even offer mortgages on them?
The man's a libertarian loon.
Two of ACT's candidates have bitten the dust after being exposed as rabid anti-vaxxers.
Toxic parties attract toxic people.
“We have mapped the invisible dark matter distribution across the sky, and it is just as our theories predict,” an astronomer is quoted in https://www.princeton.edu/news/2023/04/11/new-map-universes-cosmic-growth-supports-einsteins-theory-gravity about the #ACT #CMB lensing #cosmology results: “This is stunning evidence that we understand the story of how structure in our universe formed over billions of years, from just after the Big Bang to today."
After the group that administers the test criticized him, the Florida governor questioned the “need” for SAT tests in his state.

@w7voa If the 1950s-1980s United States endured an ally or neutral country where the arms trade was spiraling out of control and the population was fraught with domestic terrorism, racial injustice, racially and politically induced murders, anti-democratic leadership, and election manipulation, it would probably invade.
Yes the 1980s US would quite possibly occupy the 2020s US for the purpose of nation building.
If you say "never again", think:
What is my own moral responsibility as a bystander of evil?
What has my reaction been to acts and expressions based on antisemitism & other ideologies hatred?
What can I do, to make our world a better & safer place."
And then, start doing it.
