Interesting @ForeignPolicy read: "Perhaps no other sectors have been hit as hard by the coronavirus pandemic as those that enrich and entertain us, from culture and the arts to sports and entertainment." #popculture #TheArts foreignpolicy.com/2020/08/15/cov…
#FACTS! "While I can’t predict the future, I do know that when audiences return, the pandemic's legacy will likely be that it accelerated #TheArts' ability to connect with audiences through technology." — Mark C. Hanson, CEO of @SFSymphony foreignpolicy.com/2020/08/15/cov… Image
@EdgeofSports Have you seen this @ForeignPolicy piece? It's mostly specifically about the arts, but there's quite a bit of reflection re: sports thrown in. Curious to hear your thoughts. foreignpolicy.com/2020/08/15/cov…
The whole piece is interesting, but I'm really partial to @UNESCO directrice générale @AAzoulay's contributions. Her essay: "The Crisis Has Demonstrated the Power of Technology to Connect With Audiences" is great.
"The world must come together to safeguard our cultural heritage by providing sustainable funding for cultural institutions. We must ensure stable living & working conditions for artists to flourish." @UNESCO directrice générale @AAzoulay in @ForeignPolicy foreignpolicy.com/2020/08/15/cov…

Good morning, loves! ❤️ Here are a few wisdom droplets for you: To state the obvious, every member of congress who aided & abetted last Wednesday's attack is a traitor to this country. #NatSec
If you've seen photos & listened to reports from congresspeople who were inside the Capitol during the attack, you know certain Republicans gave rioters pre-attack recognizance tours.
They also first-pumped to cheer attackers on as they trashed the Capitol, tweeted out the location of the fellow congress members' hiding spaces & one literally said (about the mob) "those are my people." Watch this entire video. #NatSec

If you need a mental / #SelfCare break, tune in to something uplifting ... We're staaaaarting! First up, @USChamber Pres. Suzanne Clark is interviewing @NEAArtsChair @MACartsDC & Annette Bening. #StarringRole

LOVE @NEAArtsChair @MACartsDC comment about how the arts unite us. It's true!! ♥️ #StarringRole
By definition, they require imagination and expanding one's mind. For example, when you see an actor, you're picturing them as the person they're depicting — not solely thinking: "Hey, that's ____!" #StarringRole

Keep this on your radar, folks. Especially watch the language used to describe what's happening. @businessInsider #ForcedSterilizations businessinsider.com/ice-doctor-per…
Usually, "unwanted" is a dated term to describe an untimed, or unexpected, pregnancy. #SRHR #SexualHealth
Usually, it covers a lot of agency on the part of the person who became pregnant. In other words, someone who is able to become pregnant had a consensual sexual encounter, and that encounter resulted in an unexpected — or "unwanted" — pregnancy.

Fascinating experiment! We need more diversity in tech. Here's what the experiment shows ... THREAD.
Not all photos are uploaded to Twitter using the correct specs to optimize display on Twitter. For example ...
Twitter apparently taught its algorithm to find the most interesting / relevant parts of of photos, then display a cropped version of those pics such that the most relevant part shows up as a thumbnail.

We have to stay up. Stay focused. Stay happy. Stay optimistic.
Thank you, @silverbranchus for hosting an outdoor, physically distanced #Oktoberfest event. Spirits need lifting right now, and you're providing that service. #RIPRBG
Tonight I restore my soul. 🍻 Tomorrow, I get back to work.

The New York Times did this, back in 2016. Though, with Trump supporters and Duck Dynasty (vis-a-vis shows like Modern Family & Empire). nytimes.com/interactive/20…
It's the premise of #BigData. To riff off Aristotle's "give me a child until he is 7, and I will show you the man", in modern times, it's: "Give me your data, and I will show you who I believe you are, and push you in the direction of who I want you to be."
As an example, if you're getting election-related calls, texts, Facebook ads, etc., you're getting them because you're on a list. Data decided which list(s) you should be on.
