Today in pulp... I get serious about word processing! #WednesdayWisdom
Writing even the simplest document is complex: composing, editing, spell-checking, formatting, version control, page numbering, printing, archiving... Automating even part of the process should lead to a productivity boom.
And in 1964 IBM made a huge stride in this automation with the MT/ST system, combining a 'golfball' typewriter with a magnetic tape drive to create the first reusable storage medium for typed information. No more carbon copies: letters were now electronic.

This is a business you can do on either a part-time or full time basis, depending on your resources, social network and capability. For those, however, who do not have much capital to start with you can operate right from your house. #WednesdayWisdom
To do a good job, however, there are few important things that you must know.First you must be familiar with the various laws and regulations governing the insurance business. Secondly, you must be certain about the condition for claims.
There are several insurance companies who will employ you and you don't necessary need to resume at their offices until you have clients who want to insure something with you.
One other important factor of success in this business is absolute honesty on your part.

41 years ago today, the BBC aired its latest science fiction show. Dark, violent and dystopian it pitted a group of criminals against a neo-fascist Federation in a doomed battle for survival and freedom.

This is the story of #Blakes7...
Blakes 7 (no apostrophe) was unique. Created by Terry Nation, it was more George Orwell than George Lucas. Story arcs were long, morals were hazy, lead characters were gruesomely tortured or killed off. Cynicism, ruthlessness and paranoia were always present.
Blakes 7 tells the story of political dissident Roj Blake. Brainwashed and used as bait to trap other dissidents he is then tried on false charges and deported to die on a penal colony.

1. That white evangelical subculture has been "shielded from criticism" is absolutely true; it's something the #Exvangelical community is working to end. The shielding is partly due to evangelical leaders' savvy about cultivating good PR and cozy relationships with journalists.
2. For an introduction to how evangelicals manage their PR, see this piece I wrote for @RDispatches ahead of the midterms:…

To dig deeper, follow and look up the work of @brucewilson, @FredClarkson, and @PRAEyesRight.

3. But there's another reason evangelicals have been shielded from criticism, and that has to do with what @drvox refers to as "media culture's weird mythology about who is & isn't 'Real American.'"

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).

Look out it's the #FunPolice coming to ruin Christmas songs & Children shows near you!
In the #MeToo era, any remote suggestion of men “taking advantage” of innocent women must be wiped away from history.
“Baby, its Cold Outside,” a classic Christmas song of over 50 years must be banned! It doesn’t matter that 94% of the radio stations listeners said no to the ban, the radio station caved to the 6% that voted the song as inappropriate.

A little birdie just whispered something in my ear, so I did a little digging. Part of Manafort’s plea agreement was admitting guilt in STATE CRIMES. He is not a very smart man because those cannot be pardoned. He will rot in jail. Get him @NewYorkStateAG 1)
If prosecutors went after him in New York, Virginia or California — where Manafort has already admitted to defrauding banks and evading taxes — the former campaign chairman could be looking at significant prison time that couldn't be erased by presidential pardon. 2)

Today I'm looking back at the career of English painter, book illustrator and war artist Edward Ardizzone. #WednesdayWisdom
Edward Ardizzone was born in Vietnam in 1900 to Anglo-French parents. Aged 5 he moved to England, settling in Suffolk.
Whilst working as an office clerk in London Ardizzone began to take lessons at the Westminster School of Art in his spare time. In 1926 he gave up his office job to concentrate on becoming a professional artist.
