[1/2] Today we received trove of NYC #supportivehousing interview outcome data. Here's one that stands out: "Rejected. Client presented as resistant during the interview process. Client did not engage interviewer appropriately." What does "appropriately" mean? Who judges it?
[2/2] The provider does. Is this #racialized, is it #gendered? Is this a valid reason to #gatekeep housing from a homeless person w/ mental illness in need? Social workers should not get discretion to gatekeep a basic human need w/ no accountability. Yet, here we are.
[+1] Here's another reason a homeless person struggling with mental illness was rejected from supportive housing: "Applicant was evicted from previous rental property." @NYCCouncil needs to move forward with legislation to stop this kind of gatekeeping.

Public service announcement. If you're a #Caps fan who is in love with Ovechkin and cannot bear to hear anything negative about your idol, do your mental health a favor and unfollow me. Better yet, block me so that no inconvenient truth accidentally seeps into your timeline.
I should also note that I normally block all hysterical Ovi screamers anyway, so you only get one shot to call me a horrible assclown without credibility who is like stupid and junk.
Is it really worth it? Be a child, save yourself from fascism, all that.
I am serious. Just keep living in your world of angelic Ovi carefully created by the Capitals PR department. Why do you need to harass me with your unhinged ramblings? I'm sure there're plenty of safe spaces on the interwebs where you can circle jerk on your hero. Go in peace.

The IOC keeps giving Russia chances, and Russia keeps pissing all over another line in the sand.
Folks in the West simply don't understand: Russians view sports as foreign politics. They only care about winning. "How" never enters the equation. "How" doesn't matter. Gold does.
I mean... You can give them 1000 more chances to clean up their act. It won't change anything. When the IOC says "stop cheating", Russian officials hear "stop getting caught."
IOC is far away. Putin is close. And Putin demands gold. All the time. Any cost.
Oh, and in case the whole "harass, threaten, discredit and silence the whistleblower" playbook seems unfamiliar, here is where it comes from.

My son and I are eating barbecue and arguing about greatest goalies in each NHL team's history. Some teams (Buffalo, Edmonton, NJ) are open and shut cases. Others are tough. Care to settle it, Twitter?
Let's start with #NYR
Moving on to Chicago.
How about Florida? I am with @strombone1, my kid is vehement about Beezer.

"Mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasio
has had three different legal names, court records show"
- New York Daily News…
"...curious twist,
the application said the required legal notice disclosing the name change would be published in the weekly Boston Phoenix,
and not in a New York City newspaper.
In contrast, the legal notice of the 1983 name change was published in the New York Law Journal."
"...from 1995 to 2001,
the now-candidate for mayor was registered with the city Board of Elections as Bill de Blasio and voted 10 times under that name,
even though he had not yet petitioned the court to change his name from Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm."
