Ukraine crisis in Tweets

****

The Ukrainian government has begun its long-stalled offensive against separatists in the east of the country. A bit of what we know as found on Twitter.

    Did you know the Steppes of the Ukraine are among the richest soil for growing crops in the world? The deepest topsoil too. Don’t know if they’ve ruined them with artificial fertilizer and weed killers or not. . .

    UN Security Council still meeting on Ukraine http://webtv.un.org/live/

    Thank you NW for the new post on Ukraine.

    Major clashes in Odessa and the pro-Russian separatists are getting their butts kicked by Ukrainians.

        John Fugelsang had a good meme this morning: There were literally scores of U.S. embassies under attack that day because of that stupid trailer to a non-existent movie. How many Americans were saved due to the good management in a quickly changing, dangerous situation?

    Vox.com provided a misleading take of the Keystone XL pipeline in a short video explainer. The video for former Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein’s new venture was sponsored by General Electric, which has publicly supported the tar sands pipeline.

    The visually appealing “Vox Explains” video gives a two-minute overview of the Keystone XL, but provides a misleading view of the number of jobs the pipeline would create. While the voiceover states that building the pipeline would “create thousands of temporary construction jobs,” the number on the screen shows 42,000 temporary jobs, suggesting that all 42,000 jobs will be in construction. But the State Department report actually projects only 3,900 temporary construction jobs if construction took one year or 1,950 jobs if construction took two years. The 42,000 figure includes tens of thousands of indirect jobs in everything from food service to finance that the State Department estimates will be supported by Keystone XL’s construction. The State Department estimates an outcome of only 35 permanent jobs would result from construction of the pipeline.

    The video shows how new media can mislead in ways that newspapers never could. In the Keystone XL video, both the voiceover and the text were technically accurate. However, the combination of the two resulted in a misleading impression.

      The blame is Solely that of Antonio Scalia and the Rehnquist Courts on Dec 9th, 2000. Along with JEB and Kathrine Harris.

        This G.W. Bush you all are talking about think that his brother Jeb would make a good president. I guess that is why they always say that Mom is the wise one in the family, Barbara Bush said Jeb should not run. Mom is right.

    Awaiting independent confirmation, but if this is true someone in Moscow may be coming to their senses ….
