My employer is offering me to travel on airplane✈️ rather than train🚆 because the ticket is cheaper.

Obviously, they don't give a f*** about the environment.

Venezuelan blackout 🇻🇪 ⚡ 

People behaved very calmly but I guess if the power shutdown would have lasted longer, it would have been really hard to survive - probably causing violent events and confrontation between the people.

it was clearly a terror attack driven by US-Canada and their allies in Venezuela. The proofs are not available yet but tweets from Marco Rubio and the opposition leader confirmed their involvement.

Venezuelan blackout 🇻🇪 ⚡ 

I am just coming back from holidays in 🇻🇪 Venezuela. My flight was canceled last week due to the national blackout and I would like to share some personal impressions.

The Venezuelan power grid is fed mainly by a single hydroelectric power plant that provides power to almost 80% of the country. The blackout lasted 72 hours in the capital and up to 6 days in many states. In a country where cash is hard to find, this meant no way to pay for food or goods during those days.

Hi scholars, how do you add non peer-reviewed articles to your CVs? How do you actually call them? :BlobCatCoffee:

Soot generator comparison experiment ongoing. We have tested diffusion and premixed flame 🔥 burners. We will continue experiments next week testing an inverted flame generator and two spark generators.

Next week we will start a workshop to test different aerosol generators. The goal is to find a suitable primary standard for atmospheric black carbon absorption measurements.
