Yesterday I made a couple of predictions about the #londonprotest

That these walking CCTVs will be involved in filming the action...

Was asked about this at the #PeoplesVaccine event with @OxfamAmerica at @giwps last week and my reaction was along the lines of “umm, is that a serious question? It would be *great* if sharing mRNA IP & know-how unlocked and accelerated innovation in China and around the world.”

When I was a kid, all cars ran on leaded gas.

After a 10 year phase-out period, all cars in America ran on unleaded.

We could have started phase-out for every car to be hybrid or electric 10 years ago

We chose not to.

That’s big oil buying policy.

That’s the power of GREED!

It feels as if everyone is desperate to say that Covid is over.

I get that - I can't cope with the idea of another lockdown either.

But ignoring the very real risks that remain in the UK's future is the worst way of preventing more lockdowns.

Globally this is far from over.

13) Which we could do RIGHT NOW. A little while longer to vaccinate and continue suppression, could get cases into single digits, enough to test and trace into zero.
The less cases, the less chance of mutation, the more long term our success.

New #JennaOrtega interview and photo shoot in Cosmopolitan "Jenna Ortega Is a Better Adult Than You" (The title in the preview seems to be different and not something she says in the interview):


If you've been following her you probably know how special this is: @jennaortega watching herself!


I've heard before that she doesn't watch her own scenes. It makes me feel sorry for her, because she's the only one in the world who can't see what we see.

Apprently there is no institutional racism in the UK. But there must be SOME explanation for the clearly evident racial disparity that shows up in all aspects of our lives...

If like me you bought the music video on iTunes of #DoveCameron's #LazyBaby this morning when it came out, but can't play it (at least not on Windows or Android), you should try downloading it again. This morning I got a DRM-enabled file, the re-download plays fine.



Dove Cameron’s song *LazyBaby* is available everywhere from today. Links and full lyrics can be found under her YouTube video.

Once more for awareness. A girl should be able to just enjoy the sun on her walk in the park.

But I'm also thinking we need to move past awareness and make some changes. As a man I think this falls upon us. Obviously no man should be doing this. We should not encourage it (e.g. in stories or jokes), nor ignore it if we see it. From a young age boys should be taught to respect others and not treat people as objects. We should speak out, publicly and among friends, to make it clear this behaviour is not acceptable. But I fear this is all too obvious and not enough. What else can we do?

On a lunchtime walk in Richmond Park. I watch as a Man slows his bike right down and stops it right in my path and solicits me. I tell him no. He persists. I walk in the other direction. He swears at me as I leave.

CAN’T A GIRL JUST ENJOY THE SUN FOR GOD’S SAKE ?

> *Masi insists track limits rules didn't change mid-race*

Ok, but if you let one team break those rules for 30 laps until others threaten to start doing the same, it sure feels like that.

>*pretty much every car bar one was doing the right thing*

I count two.

Alt: image is the same text as in the post.

But seriously, I'm one of those people native in a language that tends to have longer words than English (i.e. every other non-English language) and this is really irritating and happening. Especially annoying if multiple menu items are abbreviated the same. How would you like it if you'd get a menu with "Delet..." and "Delet..."? Which one is "Delete item" and which is "Delete all"? I'm not just going to try.

I don't understand this season finale of #AmericanGods. It seems to set up stories but doesn't resolve any. Is there meant to be an episode 11? Should it have been a double episode of which we only got the first half? Felt like it.


After first suggesting a 25 April release date, has now delivered Ella Al-Shamahi's new book ahead of even its UK release. Yay! I shake on that...

We just had another press conference of our government about #Covid. Our Prime Minister repeatedly tried to defend his policies by saying that there are more restrictions in Germany. How is that a defense? Shouldn't we get these too then, since they are apparently possible?

My heart hurts for those affected by the shooting in Colorado. The normalization of such a horrific act of terrorism is terrifying & upsetting. When will people in positions of power do something? This is preventable, yet our youth continues to prepare and no one seems to mind

The live q&a with the director and cast of #TheFallout including lead #JennaOrtega has just finished. You can watch it on YouTube: q&a The Fallout. The film just premiered on SXSW and it looks like it made quite an impression. I liked Jenna's description of what she takes from the roles she plays.


Jenna Ortega's film The Fallout has its world premiere today at SXSW online. The teaser trailer and everything I've heard about it has me quite excited. #JennaOrtega #TheFallout
