Someone please tell me how books published by Lexington (part of @RLPGBooks) count towards tenure.

I just finished an atrocious (polite description) book by a tenured professor on "Sexual Jihad." As if that's not bad enough, the book repeatedly refers to "Christian Yazidis."
@RLPGBooks Yazidis are not Christian by definition, guys. Yazidis are an ENTIRELY different religion - ethnic Kurds who speak Kurdish. Apostasy renders one outside the fold.

Does @RLPGBooks use peer review? It's appalling that this book was ever published, let alone counted for tenure.
@RLPGBooks In a meeting, so I can't savage the book in-depth right now, but let's put it this way -- the central thesis is that "women's roles in the Qur'an and Hadith" explain "women's roles in terrorism."

By a political scientist - zero expertise in MENA, Islam, or Arabic... of course.

#ProTip for #coping with situational #depression aka life:

Decrease time spent listing to self-help/motivational podcasts & increase time spent listening to stand up comedy. #WednesdayWisdom
The Larry Sanders Show & Veep can be better than any bullshit guru or SSRI for one’s wellbeing.
*combine SSRI with comedy for maximum gains 😉 in consultation w a psychiatrist.

Can someone explain how does pricing work for all the eCommerce websites like @myntra First screenshot shows the product which I had bought when not on sale and on sale the price was inflated to almost 3X with 25% off?
Do sellers have control over the pricing or @myntra has it?
@myntra Unlike Uber / Ola which has dynamic pricing on supply and demand. How does this work in eCommerce? The third screenshot shows the pricing of the same product changes almost every day! How is this possible and legal at the same time?
@myntra I understand that every #e-commerce inflates the price around the sale. But @myntra takes it to the next level altogether. Just wanna understand how is legal. What loophole in the system is being taken advantage?

Me returning to Twitter throughout the day in the midst of playing Pokémon Go and then catching up on Pose and relaxing only to see 50 more tweets in my mentions each time of lawyers debating The Great DoorDash Tipping Debacle Of 2019 bc I replied to a few tweets at like 3:30.
The “16” replies to Dan’s initial tweet is perhaps as deceptive as DoorDash’s approach to tipping appears to be. You could spend the next three hours following all of the threads that follow from this:
Seriously, though, here’s a #protip: Folks in consumer protection sections of state AG’s offices would be good to start off their Monday going through this and, if you find an in, whoever sends off their investigative subpoenas first gets a prize.*

🚨 Also, Iggy will be a new contributing writer for National Review. Her weekly column "The principled Conservative says...'

"Iggy Azalea says her show will have a 'twerkpit'" twitter.com/i/events/11509…
Guys should have concerts with a mosh pit where we can talk openly and cry in each other's arms
If this was around when I was a teenage kid almost 40yrs ago... I'd DEF be hanging in the twerk mosh pit 💯

@realDonaldTrump Go back to selling whatever equivalent u can find to used cars because a lot of Jewish people with family in Israel - who your broke ass knows rather well - are really offended by your use of Israel & Jews in slandering Muslim women for anti-semitism.Stop selling Jesus to psychos
@realDonaldTrump I forgot the hashtag #protip
@realDonaldTrump Sands can disappoint and threaten as you know.

Good time to rework an old #protip thread: Some advice for showing your comics portfolio at conventions. First thing: Lots of people today build great careers without ever showing a portfolio or being published by anyone else.
How much should I bring? 6-10 pages of your best sequential storytelling. Show you understand narrative, and that you can keep characters, situations, & settings consistent and recognizable. Show what you can do with acting and staging, and with character, prop, and set design.
Put the art in a clean presentation binder. Have 8½ by 11" (a4) copies you can leave behind, with your URL and email on every page. Have a business card too. I’d show printouts rather than originals. They're lighter and less trouble.

#ProTip to bring attention to stock holders add a “$” symbol before whatever abbreviation that stock uses on the NYSE, twitter treats it just like a hashtag. Would suggest only using it when you have a specific point about said company💡
If you don’t know the companies abbreviation on the stock market, just search company name and NYSE.

#ProTip: If you could do just one thing for your health, remove seed (vegetable) oils like soy/canola from your diet. They are pure poison!

Seed oils are high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, particularly one called linoleic acid...

which leads to the formation of HNE (4-hydroxynonenal), a destructive compound that reacts with proteins and lipids in cell membranes. Think of it as a molecular bullet, flying around at random in cellular space, until it makes contact with a target molecule, which it damages.
HNE has been consistently detected in atherosclerotic plaques and in oxidized LDL cholesterol, the kind implicated in coronary heart disease.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

#Thread 1/ Today's a day when I think a lot of people are going to be discussing and critiquing #journalism Since I've been teaching the subject for quite some time now, here's some things I tell my students about their relationships to public officials.
2/ The first rule of #journalism, even in the @spj_tweets code of ethics, is to "seek truth and report it." Sources of truth don't always want it shared. Everyone wants to look good, and when people have chosen to do bad things, they don't want you to expose them.
3/ A side #ProTip for newsmakers: The best way to avoid unfavorable coverage is to not do bad things. It's not 100%, but it works a lot better than other shenanigans you try.

A recently mobilized toddler is like a free home penetration test.
Like any enterprise penetration test, the (ahem) “stakeholders” (me) might say: “How long has that been there? Whose is it? Did you know we had that there? Who’s responsible for that?”

First rule of security: asset inventory.
Followed up with: “Well, you’re not supposed to do that” and “You’re not following the rules.”

Since y’all are here for it here’s another spoiler alert🚨: Bernie isn’t running to be POTUS, he’s running to shit on all the *real* Democrats who are running to be POTUS so that by the time 11/2020 rolls around you hate/distrust all of them & stay home or vote 3rd party instead.
Bernie’s polling is atrocious and he knows it, so don’t think for one second that he’s jumping into this race with intentions of becoming the nominee of a party he STILL refuses to fucking join. He’s only here to throw premeditated shit at the walls, just like he was in 2016.

With another caravan en route @SpeakerPelosi chooses to peddle a false story about one woman and her insulin, she fails to mention men and women of our incredible Border Patrol are working without pay because they need us to #BuildTheWall #PelosiShutdown ❤️🇺🇸 @DHSgov
Translation of photo above notes that it’s 1,700 migrants with “several children” but chances are every photograph you’ll see will be of those children. #BuildTheWall
Few more found using Spanish hashtags and the translation function. #protip

Don’t mind me, I’m just RTing years old news about Trump making it painfully clear he’s a Russian asset since folk are pretending they didn’t know until NYT finally told them 3 years too late. 🙄
As always shout out to our rightful president Hillary Clinton because she literally spelled it out for y’all over and over again, but NO you were too busy obsessing about her stupid fucking emails, @nytimes. Apologize for your willful negligence now.
Circa May 2017. How are you feigning shock that Trump was under FBI investigation when he’s literally been obstructing it since the day he was sworn in by *his own admission*? Cease and desist with your willful amnesia and CYA.

Au-delà de la vanne, j'aimerais faire acte de salubrité publique avec un #thread répondant à Monsieur Nicolle sur quelques-uns de ses propos.
Alors ça risque d'être long, la vidéo frôle 9mn, et je promets pas de tout ratisser tant il y a à dire. #GiletsJaunes #MaximeNicolle
Parce qu'il part quand même sur beaucoup de thématiques très diverses, et (SPOILER) il raconte quand même pas mal d'inepties. Pour rester poli. Pis j'aime bien ce mot, "ineptie".
J'ai pas la science infuse, donc n'hésitez pas à compléter.
Bon, c'est parti. Hésitez pas à vous servir un verre.

Pis gardez la bouteille à portée. Y en aura besoin.

#HotTip for all! Be your own fact checker, use link below, think of it as the google of gov docs. You type what you’re looking for into the search bar and dig in, it populates court docs, archives, data and all past press releases from the Hill.
foia.gov/search.html
#ProTip 🧠 If you know exactly what you’re looking for, out it in quotes. Some of the info is repetitive but if you’re crafty enough you’ll find gems. Once you’ve done a search use search bar at top of page to look for other info.
Long story that I was going to attempt to thread one day but since we’re here I’ll just explain it. A few years ago McCabe and FISA court sued search engines to NOT populate this data, it was under the guise of National Security of course but pretty sure it had darker intentions.

NO.
Stop being the wind beneath his propaganda.
The entire MSM needs a STAT crash course on how not to spread blatant propaganda if we ever hope to survive this racist dictatorial bullshit.
Trump literally abuses the press and his power on a regular basis but they don’t have sense enough to recognize that granting him privileged access to lie to the public won’t make them or the country any safer. He will never give a FUCK about anyone but himself.
Learn this now.

Off to #SCOTUS, where we have arguments in Timbs v. Indiana at 10a over the “excessive fines” clause of the Eighth Amendment and whether its prohibition should apply—or be incorporated—against the states. It’s a case, in part, about asset forfeiture, and has drawn much interest.
Here’s a preview from @AHoweBlogger —> scotusblog.com/2018/11/argume…

From a psychology/criminology standpoint, Trump’s guilt is self evident in his endless quest to subvert and obstruct the Mueller probe. It doesn’t get said enough that if he was innocent of the collusion charge he wouldn’t be going to such blatantly desperate lengths. #protip
Seriously, aside from playing golf and being racist, obstructing the Russia probe is all Trump’s done in the WH for almost 2 yrs straight. Just think of how many ppl he’s fired or appointed in hopes of fulfilling his widely known desire to end it altogether. Obsession/compulsion.
He isn’t capable of controlling himself or appearing cool under pressure and he’s such a sociopath that he can’t help but abuse all the power he has for as long as he can. He gives no fucks about how guilty he looks because in his mind the ends will justify his high risk means.
