Hi @SimplyBookMe, I'm thinking to switch to a paid plan to simplify my current scheduling process. This blogpost is great & I would chose you over competitors because of Bitcoin payment. BUT I see you allow me to accept Bitcoin only via a centralized service that I don't trust...
...and that I actually actively discurage my clients and followers from using (bad security, unhetical business practices, legacy and deprecated standards). Besides, the main benefits of Bitcoin are kinda lost if you use a trusted centralized service, anyway. Would you...
...consider letting your users chose option to receive Bitcoin directly?

jimin finds endearing how the new hot transfer student wears a different uniform so when he finds him alone in a class he tries to be cool and asks, “you know anything about the asshole that teaches this class?”

he only points at himself “this asshole?”

oh, he’s the teacher
professor Min doesn’t let him live through it for the rest of his senior year. It’s not Jimin’s fault the man looks so young! and he is very young, he just graduated university and got the job because he used to study in the same private school, so like 8 years more than jimin...
and yeah, maybe jimin did some stalking to find out that information because yeah, maybe he kind of is crushing on the new music teacher, but half the school is so he’s more than fine. but unlike the rest, professor Min acknowledges his existence, even teases him during class.

#TodayWe announced 5 major systems entering two-sided Accountable Care Organization contracts. But what about independent primary care providers? We haven't forgotten about you! /1
In parallel with #BluePremier, we have an exciting new opportunity to help independent #PrimaryCare physicians in North Carolina thrive. More advanced than medical home models, it is a glide path to greater financial opportunity directly tied to total cost and quality of care. /2
We are working with @AledadeACO @Farzad_MD to accelerate the success of these independent practices in accountability for their patients. Aledade will arm practices with workflow technology, analytic insights, and risk mitigation. /3

This is a thread touches on the real value I've found in just... reflecting on my stuff. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff in the past month and a half. I've also found stuff that I am now using more, or better, with genuine and newfound appreciation and enjoyment.
I'm not going to spend a whole 'nother day tweeting about KonMari but as I said yesterday: when I figured out a place to put my hats away, it let me look at my hats, and appreciate them, and take better care of them.

And the end result was I got more hats.
I've had some nice things I splurged on over the decades because I thought I would like them but then I didn't have any plan for where to put them or how to take care of them or when I would/wear use them. And so they did nothing for me. And I did nothing for them.

Last twitter thread for this job with me, @AutisticaUK & @turinginst! Because the deadline is THURSDAY 17 JAN! Just two days to get your application in 😱🤗🤩

I’m going to give you my opinions on how to write a good cover letter. I hope they’re helpful!

turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Let’s start by saying these are only my opinions. I’ll justify them so I hope they make sense to you. But different selection committees will have different requirements. Don’t over generalise to different positions :)
Here’s a screenshot of the application procedure from the job ad. It asks for a CV, contact details of your referees, and a covering letter.

Not much, right?

I think this makes the application pretty freaking hard! Let me explain why.

Anyone who's followed me for a bit knows I'm pretty amused by appalling mid-century cookery. But there are absolutely reasons food got so bad in the 50s through the 70s, y'know.

The big one? Mechanization.
Food production-- due in part to the natural march of progress, and in part to the demands of supplying troops in WWII-- became more efficient, more productive, and easier. As a result, food was cheaper, and there was a LOT of it. And manufacturers got very good at processing it.
They canned it, boiled it, jarred it, froze it, turned it into convenience foods with long shelf lives, durable food that lasted for years. And when the US Army stopped buying, the decided to sell it to housewives.

This was a literal attempt to phase out home cooking.

Culture and Books

You know why they're getting mad at me for stating what we women have to do?

Because we know how toothless our demands are that men change without incentives & disincentives.

Expecting them to change because it's the "right thing to do". 🙄

Newsflash.

That rarely works.
That's why street harassers won't change. It's partly due to a total social & economic breakdown with NO incentives.

No consequences.

They get nothing out of being better people. Their families aren't rejecting them. Many still get Thanksgiving plates.

Shame doesn't work.
In your delusional mind, "doing the right thing" is always rewarding enough.

You really think shame is the ultimate persuader. 🙄

In the real world? People behave according to incentives. Economic opportunities. Social ostracism.

For people with nothing to lose?

Anarchy.

Just blended tinned pears and a very small amount of tinned spinach to see if I could make a palatable juice out of them.

Reader, I do not recommend this. Holy shit that's the worst idea I have ever had. I may never forgive myself.
The absolute fucking colour of this
And I'm still looking at it wondering if I can salvage it into a soup of some sort WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME

1. We all know that withdrawing the US from NATO is the mother of all batshit crazy ideas. But we can't ignore the fact that Trump might actually do it. Don't kid yourself, he wants to. Maybe we will get lucky and he won't pull the trigger. But if he did, what would it look like?
2. It's a hard question to answer, because literally NO ONE has ever taken such an idea seriously, or done any planning on it. You'd have been laughed out of any previous Administration for suggesting. Bolton, Pompeo, & nearly every member of Congress (save Rand Paul?) oppose it.
3. It's scary, but let's understand it. Here's just a few first order effects. For starters, it'd be open season for Russia in E & C Europe. Putin already feels free to menace non-NATO states (Ukraine &Georgia) & "reacquire" Belarus. First targets: Baltics & Montenegro. And then?

Once again a traditional media company is targeted for takeover by, essentially, a hedge fund, the MO of which is to gut & destroy its acquisitions. It’s a white-collar mob bust-out. The benefits to the 1% are more than financial. denverpost.com/2019/01/14/dig…
It strikes me as willful blindness to deny the obvious: companies that are essentially fronts for hedge funds are dedicated to weakening the power of the traditional press, the only part of the media that still practices serious investigative journalism on the regular.
As a long-term strategy it makes sense: these hedge funds that target traditional media outlets aren’t losing money on the deal, it’s ultimately just 2 to 4 years of bearable headaches before they can take a bunch of properties out behind the barn and put one in their brains.

1) King David told us there would be days like this for Pres Trump, in Psalm 31:

I place myself in your hand,
and hour by hour you hold me
safe from the hands out to get me.
Warm me, your servant, with a smile;
save me because you love me.
2) I did not wait for hard times
to seek your help, and I am unashamed.
Embarrass the wicked, stand them up,
leave them stupidly shaking their heads
as they drift down to hell.
Gag those loudmouthed liars
who heckle me, your follower,
with jeers and catcalls.
