Today in pulp I'm looking back at one of #Japan's greatest science fiction magazines: Hayakawa S-F! #FridayFeeling
Esu-Efu Magajin (S-F Magazine) was first published in February 1960 by Hayakawa Shobō publishing, and has gone on to shape both Japanese SF and champion Japanese authors.
Science fiction had been reasonably popular in Japan before the war, but it was in the mid-1950s that specialist story magazines, such as Takumi Shibano's subscription fanzine Uchūjin (Cosmic Dust) began to appear.

1. I amplify a lot of fundraising requests. I know this may annoy some of my followers, but I want to take a moment to talk about why I do this. I considered snarking the screenshot posted below with a "Men On the Internet" tweet, but I think I should do this in a serious way.
2. I'm an advocate for the #Exvangelical community, which consists of people who have escaped fundamentalist/evangelical Christianity, an authoritarian and damaging form of Protestantism that upholds white supremacist patriarchy:…

Here's a National Emergency for you, CNN reported this about an hour ago" "Hundreds of TSA screeners, working without pay, calling out sick at major airports"
Holy cow......... here we go. #TrumpShutdown #FridayFeeling…
2-"This problem of call outs is really going to explode over the next week or two when employees miss their first paycheck,.. "TSA officers are telling the union they will find another way to make money. That means calling out to work other jobs."
3-"Single parents can no longer afford child care or they are finding cash-paying jobs outside of government work to pay their rent and other bills, for example." Guaranteed that Trump will find a way to vilify these people. Watch. #FridayFeeling #TSAwalkout

Our country and our freedom are at risk. Socialism has worked its way into almost every facet of our lives, robbing us of our 1st amendment right to speak the truth & even threatening our 2nd amendment right to defend ourselves.
Govt,media,entertainment, educational establishment has been weaponized against us.Christians bad Muslims good. Capitalism bad socialism good. Protecting life is bad abortion on demand is good,Protecting our borders is bad while a flood of illegals we have 2 support is good.
Our founding fathers were bad while Karl Marx was good. 2 generations of children now have been taught to hate America. The only @POTUS we have had in decades willing to fight for us & for America is pilloried & harassed on a daily basis.

If you are offended by Rashida Tlaib's colorful language but not Trump's, your problem might not be the language.

Cache of 328 NS…

The Intercept's largest-ever SIDtoday release, with 328 documents

When the #NSA discovered that #Iran may have been buying computer chips from the #UnitedStates routing them through a U.S. ally
Potentially supplying them to detonate #bombs against U.S. forces in Iraq & #Afghanistan
It credited so-called economic intelligence with the find.
The solution wasn't a death blow delivered by the #military but rather a new regulation on the export of certain #technologies via the #CommerceDepartment which the #NSA said would end up “saving #American & coalition lives.”

So I tried raising #ClimateBreakdown with in-laws this holiday. Context: they are working-class, self-educated, ethics of individual responsibility, enjoying in retirement what they never had as children or adults: leisure and travel.
My in-laws basically embody this excellent thread by @FlightFree2019. They are also resentful of me (educated, uni-job parents, uni-job myself) giving any advice or lecturing. Somewhat understandable. Uneasy truce over shared love of their grandchild. 2/
So yesterday we had a quick chat during TV commercials (SO MANY OF WHICH WERE ABOUT BOOKING FLIGHT-BASED HOLIDAYS). They said that "everyone knows" about #ClimateBreakdown but no one will do anything until "millions die, here, where it matters." 3/

If you've been on Twitter for a while, you've probably run across daily hashtags such as #WednesdayWisdom or #FridayFeeling. Some accounts appear to be using them on the wrong day. Can this be turned into a diagnostic technique?

cc: @ZellaQuixote
To explore, we downloaded all original tweets (no RTs) containing #WednesdayWisdom since Saturday morning. We then excluded those containing the names of other days of the week, resulting in tweets from 89 accounts.
A significant subset of those 89 accounts appear to be automated. 33 of 89 are either active 24/7, post 90+% of tweets via automation services/API, or both. There's a decent variety, but some of them do appear to be part of networks (indicated by color).

I've muted "certain writers'" names here bc I'm so sick of seeing "progressive" men fawning all over women who think abortion is evil.

I suppose it seems evil to people who come from wealth & privilege & know nothing of the real world. And btw, if you care so much, ADOPT.🙄
If your economic plan doesn't include abortion as a right, then you know NOTHING about poverty.
And yes, this *is* a subtweet of a self-proclaimed "progressive" who laments the evils of abortion while plastering the internet with pictures of her bio kid.
