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
Even the U.S. government — and both of the major political parties — have recognized the strategic power of #TheArts. Check the current U.S. #CulturalDiplomacy efforts. #StarringRole #NatSec
"The @ECAatState creates long-lasting ties between the U.S. & other countries by providing Americans with access to international artists, while sharing America's rich culture of performing & visual arts with international audiences."

HAPPENING NOW: @NEAarts Sunil Iyengar is interviewing @Americans4Arts @ArtsInfoGuy Randy Cohen & Colorado State prof. @michaelseman. #StarringRole
#DidYouKnow: @Americans4Arts has tons of great resources. They do a great job explaining exactly why the arts are so vital. Check them out.

Current panel: Amy Webb from @Americans4Arts is chatting with @RIAA Chair / CEO @mitch_glazier, @TheActorsFund CEO @Goodhouse7 & @LACountyArts Kristin Sakoda #StarringRole uschamber.com/live-event-exp…
THANK YOU, @LACountyArts Kristin Sakoda, for surfacing the very important topic of racism & inequality in the arts. Reminder, you can watch #StarringRole here: uschamber.com/live-event-exp…
I'm up next!!! 😲 (Our panel is about #SmallBusiness & #TheArts. 📺) #StarringRole
I've been a big supporter of helping #SmallBiz owners understand creativity to vital to business — and helping artists understand that they are, indeed, business people. #StarringRole
If you're not already familiar with it, my firm FUNKY BROWN CHICK is a #BlackOwnedBusiness & #WomanOwned #SmallBusiness leveraging the arts to change the world. funkybrownchick.com #StarringRole
Thank you to @RIAA Chair / CEO @mitch_glazier, too, for raising the need to sustainably address inequality. It can't be something that #TheArts tackle for a month, or a year. Fairness needs to be core to the way we go about the business of the arts. #StarringRole
.@LACountyArts Kristin Sakoda's contributions to this panel is giving me life!! ♥️ She just mentioned how, when someone supports the arts, they're also: going to dinner, buying drinks, paying to park, etc. The economic impact is quite large. #StarringRole
Our panel just wrapped a bit ago. ❤️ THANK YOU to @NASAA_Arts @pambreaux for moderating. Thanks, also, to my wonderful co-panelist @CO_Creatives @MargaretCreates for such fantastic insights. Always wonderful to chat about #SmallBusiness and #TheArts! #StarringRole
The #StarringRole event is still going. RIGHT NOW: The amazing @USChamber @RickCWade is chatting with Earth, Wind & Fire 🌎💨 🔥 co-founder @Verdine_White. #StarringRole
Yes, yes, yes!! ❤️ Thank you to @USChamber @RickCWade & @EarthWindFire @Verdine_White for bringing so much LIFE, LAUGHTER & FUN to this event. 🙏 Great fireside chat!! #StarringRole

Gotta say, I kind of feel like I should be listening to @EarthWindFire right now! Such great music. The arts heal, the arts are a balm. #StarringRole
Go, @PamBreax, go!! ❤️ Thank you for closing out #StarringRole with such style, confidence, grace, and knowledge. I really loved this event. Can't wait to return to @kencen, @woollymammothtc, @smithsoniannpg and the rest of my favorites. #StarringRole Image

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

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.

How quickly some forget. Journal articles, research reports, oral histories, and crimes stats all document upticks in anti-Muslim sentiment and violence in the aftermath of 9/11.
We must tell our stories — because others attempt to tell them (incorrectly) about us. It's one of the many reasons why I love oral histories. Talk, and listen, to people who've actually lived the experience. #NothingAboutUsWithoutUs #September11
If you're interested in oral accounts of 9/11 — from folks who were there — you can read stuff like Chief Robert Gray (from Arlington County Fire Department) talk about leading a rescue team in search of people trapped at the Pentagon. 911memorial.org Image
