1/ I build the Customenu startup and I’ll #buildinpublic, using this thread.

What is #customenu?

A digital menu platform for #restaurant.

Instead of using boring paper were to check the #dishes, you can see a nice representation on your smartphone.
2/ This is the second release and this time I decided to share my journey on Twitter.

I started for the first time, one year ago in June. It was a pandemic situation and in #Romania, new rules were coming for the #restaurants' businesses.
3/ Only me thinking about this project.

What should do?

1. Scan a #QRCode
2. Open the #menu
3. Check #products in categories and subcategories

Building Expertise

Even if you are someone who dabbles in multiple topics, you can still build expertise.

Find HOW from the following threads🧵
1/ If you have multiple interests, it means you are more curious than others.

In fact, I had to go past 200 books to understand my keen interest in (cognitive + behavioral) psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy.

And mind you, I’m an economist by training.

So Have Patience!
2/ If you are still struggling to pick a topic, then choose a topic based on something you already find fascinating and love to learn.

For instance, if your bookshelf is filled with leadership & Development books, then there lies the hint.

Stuff you can borrow and take home from the HCC Libraries, a thread 🧵 #hccfl
1/ Let’s talk #books 📚 DYK we have different book collections? The circ collection primarily supports research, but some campuses also have collections for fun reading (or research, we don’t judge)
2/ Most books are a 14-day loan but you can renew them twice ✌️ #comics, #fantasy, #mystery, #NYTimes best sellers... we have it all...

In 2016, the management of the global music video behemoth, MTV, made an interesting statement: “In the last 5years, our 18-35 year old audience has shrunk by 50?!” Where did their audience go? The answer is YouTube (and other digital sources of music videos).
While MTV reaches 387 million homes globally, YouTube is used by over 1 billion people. Today, YouTube reaches more 18-35 year olds than any TV Network. Most views come from mobile devices.
The Internet (primarily social media networks) has become the primary channel through which the youth demography may be reached. Therefore, it is important for churches to learn how to use it to spread the Gospel and to minister to them.

At long last, it’s time for another #TetZoocryptomegathread, wherein I look in detail at a piece of photographic evidence said to show a MONSTER. This time, we’re looking again at a #LochNessMonster photo, specifically the HUGH GRAY PHOTO of 1933.... #LochNess #cryptozoology
This photo - famously hard to interpret - is the very first photo claimed to show the Loch Ness Monster! And I’ll mostly be calling it the Gray Nessie photo. To business…
As per usual, please remember that this isn’t called a megathread for nothin. It’s loooooong. Secondly, I am an ‘honest sceptic’. I am not biased, and I aim to report authentically what authors and reporters have said, on both sides of the proverbial fence... #cryptozoology

Most of these creative businesses people daydream about are vanishing small, but none is so tiny as #TTRPGs. There are perhaps a hundred or so real, workaday-world jobs in the whole “industry”. And once you get past WotC, Paizo and Chaosium, that ground grows very sparse indeed.
People like to imagine some complex creative ecosystem of pros and non-pros, but in #TTRPGs, that line is blurred so much as to not exist. A nobody with no backing can win game of the year, and sell more than enough to make it all worthwhile all on their own.
I have worked professionally in #comics, #books, #videogames, and #cardgames and none of them approach the level of freedom and ease-of-liftoff of #TTRPGs. It is quite literally something you can just choose to try without a huge wind-up or buy-in from some tastemaker.

(5) PENGUIN DICTIONARY OF SYMBOLS (1969)

A collaboration of French writer, philosopher and theologian Jean Chevalier, with French poet and explorer Alain Gheerbant
Their literary background shines forth in the lyrical quality or poetic resonance of the entries - although at times the entries can be somewhat overwhelming in the density of their style
As for the book itself, well, it's a dictionary…of symbols. Obviously. Although that understates just how comprehensive the entries are, both in quantity and quality. There's an entry for virtually everything that can be seen as a symbol - animals, plants, objects and concepts

Beginning in Havana in 1865, factory workers paid for a reader, or lector, to keep their minds active & engaged during long hours of monotonous labor. On a raised platform, the lector #read aloud everything from newspapers to classics.
#photo-#Cuba, 1900
#books #History #writing
And it appears wearing your hat as you worked was also a popular trend.
An amazing image of another lector reading to cigar factory workers in Havana, 1950.

I'm curious if this idea could be modernized for today's labor force? Maybe a #podcast or #audiobooks?

@sonnlich Women aren’t martyrs for birth.
People who feel pain during birth might have problems releasing enough oxytocin, or allowing the brain to shut down. Natural birth hormones makes pain reception during birth very difficult.

My mom had a bad time too. 🤷🏻‍♀️
@sonnlich Its most accurately analogous to sex.
Sex hurts some people who are not physically or mentally ready for it.
The birth reflex fills all the body’s pain receptors w oxytocin, and the brain shuts down. Doulas call that condition ‘birthland’
@sonnlich I suspect there may be a correlation between women who exercise (body building) and women who have painless births. Muscle fitness includes the practice of oxygenation to prevent soreness during exercise.
Some people think the gym is INCREDIBLY PAINFUL!

#investing #books have long spoken of it glowingly but happy to note @AswathDamodaran-IMHO among top three #valuation experts in world-went out of his way, in recent lecture to his valuation course, to recommend "Expectations Investing" by @mjmauboussin & A. Rappaport. (1/2)
Can't actually recall other instances of Aswath speaking so highly of a work mid-lecture (which doesn't mean he hasn't) -& the book itself is a masterpiece. Happily, newly revised/expanded edition out 9/21. "Expectations Investing" @mjmauboussin & A. Rappaport. #investing #books
While at it, IMHO, one can never go wrong by reading as much as possible of any/all of Professor Damadoran's #finance #books

As promised, here is a bibliographical thread of books recommended - as introductory readings - for anyone interested in the life & reign of the Emperor #Aurangzeb Alamgīr (R.A.).
Some of these include suggestions with relevant essays related to his life.
#History #Mughals #books
The Ruka’āt-i-Alamgīri is a collection of his letters to members of the Imperial family, #Mughal noblemen and others.
A must read for anyone interested in an assessment of the Emperor as a family patriarch, administrator and ruler. Easy to read and available to order online.
Sir Jadunath Sarkar’s 5 volume biography of the Mughal Emperor “The History of Aurangzib” also has an abridged version by that prodigious #historian. I recommend this abridged version - readily available - for beginners. A critical assessment of his life but essential reading.

super-excited to learn today that my book #99Erics just won the Publishing Triangle's Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction! to celebrate, in this THREAD, I will share excerpts from my silly, surreal, sex-positive book...
publishingtriangle.org/2021/05/winner… #LGBTQ #queer #bisexual #books
...first, all of these excerpts, plus book reviews (like the one from Publishing Triangle below), as well as virtual book readings, FREE downloads of the first 5 chapters, & links to purchase, can be found on the #99Erics webpage: juliaserano.com/99erics.html #LGBTQ #queer #bisexual Image
...the chapter "Ethical Slut vs. Confused Slut" is about the absurdity of dating straight men after you've spent time immersed in queer women's communities (5 minute read, no-paywall!):

#TheGodsThemselves o "Los Propios Dioses" de Isaac Asimov

Hace poco hablaba con @danniacc47 sobre este #libro y coincidimos en que es una joya tanto por su manejo de la ciencia ficción dura (obvio, Asimov era bioquímico), como por el desarrollo magistral de la historia

#Books
#TheDoubleHelix o "La doble hélice"🧬

Aunque sabemos que Watson es un racista insoportable, cuando leí este libro me llenó de entusiasmo por la vida universitaria

Su mejor frase: la vida de un@ investigador/a tiene que ser tan interesante académica como socialmente 🤪

1/ Justice Amy Coney Barrett has landed a $2 million advance for her first book. #SCOTUS #appellatetwitter #books
2/ ACB's advance is more than the $1.5 million that Justice Clarence Thomas received for his memoir, My Grandfather's Son (but that was back in 2007). CT's book went on to become a #1 bestseller.

bit.ly/32tQT1n #SCOTUS #appellatetwitter #books
3/ ACB's advance is also more than the $1.2 million that Justice Sonia Sotomayor received in 2010 for her memoir, My Beloved World, which also went on to become a #1 bestseller.

Had a brain wave / brain fart today - Don't know which?!

Recently re-read x2 #books that seem pretty consequential to modern day news cycles 📚

- #JohnPerkins #ConfessionsOfAnEconomicHitman

- #BillBrowder #RedNotice

Both began their careers for #Boston based consulting co's
#Boston #USA is part of that #IvyLeague playground 🧐

#MIT & #Harvard are in close proximity - Like #Oxford & #Cambridge in the UK (those prestigious institutions also synonymous with producing spy's & leaders)!

Perkins worked for #ChasTMain
Browder for #BostonConsultingGroup
If you look at geo-political history from 1980's - today... These two fella's have really played their part!!

Both books are great by the way... well worth a read!

- #JohnPerkins = #SouthAmerica & #CentralAmerica
- #BillBrowder = #US #Russia #UK #EU ... possibly the world!? 🌐

1: It's time to claim my space. I was one of just a few journos who held @AndrewLamingMP to account prior to 2021. I lived in Bowman from 2012-2017 and I reported on him via @margokingston1's @NoFibs. AN EVOLVING THREAD on #Laming #LGBTQ equality #Journalism #Books and more.
2: It began in 2013 when I submitted an article on #MarriageEquality to Margo's #CitizenJournalism news site @NoFibs. Up until then, the site had not really covered that issue, which mattered a lot to me. @MrKRudd had just announced his support for reform: nofibs.com.au/burgewords-on-…
3: The image above is of Senator Sue Boyce (@SenatorSue) former LNP Senator for Queensland, crossing the floor to become the first LNP politician in the country to vote for marriage equality. It was a short walk but it gave the #LGBTQ community hope.
