Day 8 of #BlackAtlanticWorld #MaterialCulture for #BlackHistoryMonth I am pulling into #NYC which makes it extra appropriate to remind us all that #Manhattan is a space deeply embedded with the history of slavery. A tangible reminder of that: the African Burial Ground
Marked here on a 1750s map of Lower Manhattan
Near the cemetary? A place where black people were executed

THREAD: We recently identified the property characteristics which were featured in the best performing #retail properties over the last five years. Our categories were property subtype, region, the year in which it was built, and tenant mix. More info on the top performers below.
The best performing property subtypes were drug stores and urban retail. Drug store loans performed well due to their consistently high occupancy rates and low delinquency readings. Urban retail’s strong performance can be credited to its massive NOI figures.
Properties in the Middle Atlantic US (NY, NJ, and PA) topped all other regions in our study. The strong performance of the region is helped along by the massive volume of retail #CMBS in #NYC, as well as the large concentration of single-tenant properties.

This is from one of my favourite songs: Siret el-Hob by Om Kalthoum. So many memories. Incandescent. Gorgeous. #Egypt
The only reason I wish I was born earlier than I was, is to have experienced more of Om Kalthoum’s music as an adult who understood its depth, to be transformed like the woman in the audience at the end of this video of her transcendent live performances
I also love Lessa Faker- here are the opening 9mins of this magnificent song that is usually 45mins or so. I say usually, bec the audience often applauds to get Om Kalthoum to repeat a verse

Major incident at the #ConEd plant right by my house just now. Sky is lit up like the 4th of July. #Astoria #Queens #NYC
Everyone is safe and sound over here. We have all gotten a kick out of reading thru the mentions. Thanks for the entertaining night, Twitterverse.
I'm sure we can all chalk this up to @Noahsyndergaard coming back to

Dear @SenKennedy & @BillMagnarelli: Congratulations on becoming Chairs of your houses in the #NYSLegislature. Some thoughts to keep in mind when making policy. (cc @BikeNYBC @transalt @StreetsblogNYC @NYC_SafeStreets)

1) Transportation choices are shaped by public policy.
2) We need to give people safe, convenient transportation choices. Example, loads of people want to cycle places, but they're #2scared2bike.
3) Transportation is the #1 cause of injury death for kids and #2 for adults. But it doesn't have to be this way. Mortality rate in Netherlands is 1/4 of ours. That's because of good engineering (#VisionZero, transit, etc).

And this lady - ⁦@celiakb⁩ - is just wonderful as Scout.
Saw @Jeff_Daniels on the street after the show and blurted out that I had been skeptical, but was just blown away by the production and performances. He chuckled good naturedly and said “you’rethe audience we wanted to reach.” @mockingbirdbway
And it was ironic, but not surprising that after @mockingbirdbway - an iconic play abt racism, courage & a civil rts lawyer - that cab 3H52 refused to pick me up, just moments after cab 3J66 passed by @JNelsonLDF to pick up white passengers a few feet away. @nyctaxi #NYC

The place where "testing vs. checking" starts to really leak (as all metaphors do but still…) is the Cartesian division of "things a human does" and "things a computer does."

First, Safety-II and therefore #devops, explicitly reject the Cartesian view of complex systems.
For instance the idea that there exists a computer activity called "checking" and what "checking" does is it validates assumptions.

There is a problem right there. Validation assumes some kind of goal-oriented behavior — telos — which computers do not on their own, have.
As covered pragmatically in the classic paper "The Ironies Of Automation" and further explored by Donna Haraway: computers on their own are not capable of "validation" because validation implies an understanding of some set of moral *values.*

But computers can't do that.

So, @bguthrie and I got to talking during the last #XTC #NYC, and I asked him something…
… something that seemed very simple on the face of it…
… but something that could be pretty profound if it actually pans out the way I asked it…

Anti-Semitism is expolding & it has nothing to do w/ Trump.
I first noticed it when Farrakhan made the horrible termite speech.
I learned that in NYC there have been over 120 anti-Semitic attacks & not a single one comitted by the far right as per the NYPD. #Antisemitism #NYC

1. This is a love letter 💌 to all of those who are currently in the service industry.

Last night, a Wall Street guy was drinking at an NYC bar where my husband @BobbyCrace was working. The Wall Street guy didn’t tip him.
2. A man sitting next to The Wall Street bro noticed said to him “You forgot to tip the bartender.” To which the Wall Street bro responded:

“No I didn’t. It will be better for him if I don’t.”
3. An indication that if Bobby were tipped, it would be looked at as a “handout“ and he wouldn’t be motivated to “work on his life”.

A year ago today, I started intensive chemotherapy for #breastcancer, 3 months ago I finished aggressive radiation treatment. It's hard to believe it's been a year. I was in treatment nearly twice as long as anticipated and it was an incredible struggle to keep up w/everything 1/
A struggle which I often feel like I failed at. Running a small business solo is a challenge on a regular day, it becomes an other beast entirely when you're going through cancer treatment. 2/
I currently have 5 full time & 2 part time employees at my bakery @dalypies. I've always prioritized making sure my staff gets paid, even in the leanest of times, even if it meant not paying myself (I'm sure many business owners what that is like) 3/

On Sept. 11, 2001, everyone watched in horror as our country was attacked. Here is a story about a friend who died on 9/11 as an #American hero. I first met John years ago, we had both trained and worked in the business of corporate finance out of #NYC. John was a good man.
After working his way through the difficult first years many new executives face as they battle to make a career for themselves on Wall Street, John had worked at several firms with positions of increasing responsibility. It was difficult for him, because John was a nice guy.
By 2000, John had won enough battles to earn respect on Wall Street. He had become Managing Director of boutique investment firm Sandler O'Neill, focused on mergers & acquisitions of regional banks. John worked from his office on the 104th floor of One World Trade Center in #NYC.
