Months ago I pre-ordered a box of Hua Moa giant bananas from a future harvest. I periodically buy weird/rare fruit, and these seemed like a cool thing to try. They arrived today! (overripe normie 🍌 in photo for scale). I love tostones & heard these were really good for making…
them which was the #1 thing I had in mind but now I have *so many* giant bananas. Anyone who has had these, tell me what to do with them…
Ok first attempt, feel free to critique my approach bc I just read a recipe online. They did have some little seeds in the center and banana 1, I took them out but that made the round slices kind of weak and some split. 2, I left them in and it looks like they just cooked off.
They taste great, at least. Really really creamy texture under the fried part.

That this is even debatable is one reason why the SF BoE needs to be overhauled. Current school board members tried to make even expressing this POV a liability for parents. People left the district. We did, for a different public district that didn’t politicize basic skills.
There was no attempt by the anti-algebra activists to try to improve the system with earlier intervention. Instead, they fought assessment tests, too! Tools to measure the way the district was failing kids were recast as “inequitable”, which was the most surreal part of all.
Even after a pandemic when schools were CLOSED for over a yr - distance learning for us was 90 min a day of first grade, then 6 in-person half days - they fought the idea of assessment tests! “It’s not learning loss it’s learning change!” the Board of Harrison Bergeron USD said

For a long time, the #1 documentary was Vaxxed, and it accomplished this feat through a process of solicited reviews (coordinated review manipulation, a violation of ToS), then algorithmic boosts... (short 🧵)
Similarly to Plandemic, Vaxxed -Andy Wakefield's conspiratorial screed alleging that MMR vaccines disproportionately cause autism in Black boys and the CDC is covering it up- burst on the scene with controversy. Robert De Niro made an exec decision to include it in TriBeCa
Film Festival in 2016; the sponsors and public were livid. The film was pulled, but Wakefield and Del Bigtree made media appearances discussing it, and the censorship.
However, this was of course ab $, and no major distributors picked up the film. So Amazon became the strategy.

This guy is a political appointee in SF, part of the far-left, and for the last couple of weeks he's been trolling me and other parents for supporting the SFUSD school board recall. One smear after another. But also, pointing out he sends his kids to private is a "threat".
Here's the whole thread. He starts by asking me to forward a message to two friends of mine who have blocked him - why he thinks I work for him - or for them, for that matter - is beyond me. And then it goes from there.
Now, why does this matter? Not because John Hamasaki matters - he doesn't. A bureaucrat appointee in SF with an opinion. But what is important here is that the SF far left believes that trolling *actual* public school parents who just want accountability is noble. It's righteous!

Streaming now - I'm going to tweet some of the speaker commentary. Up first, @persily is discussing his proposed transparency legislation (submitted to Congress yesterday, when he testified!) for platforms to open up data to outside researchers...
Nearly everyone - regulators, academics, the public, media, even platforms - agrees that we need this access. The whistleblower docs really drive that home. But it has to be a privacy-protected pathway, and the devil is in the details. This work tackles those details head-on.
Next up, discussion of a paper looking at anti-Asian hate speech and its relationship to Trump's twitter commentary on the "Chinese virus", authored by Jae Yeon Kim and Aniket Kesari…

“Favoring “controversial” posts — including those that make users angry — could open “the door to more spam/abuse/clickbait inadvertently,” a staffer, whose name was redacted, wrote in one of the internal documents. A colleague responded, “It’s possible.” 😡
The decision to change this finally came down in 2020 per this coverage. Meanwhile, back in 2018, a post from Zuck (covered/linked/contextualized here:…)
This kind of thing is what the “free speech vs free reach” distinction that @aza, @tristanharris, @sandyparakilas , @gchaslot and I were writing about in 2018 was intended to highlight. Algorithmic amplification is determined by selective weighting determinations like this.

Yes! Great news!

Recall opponents, led by SF Berniecrats chair Brandee Marckmann (who worked on Collins’ campaign) have spent the last few wks running smear campaigns against anyone who supported, signed, or donated to this effort, trying to frame it as part of a vast plot…
They are digging for evidence that ordinary parents - 70k of us- are “privatizers”, “republicans”, “racists” and this is all a vast right wing plot connected to national anti-mask efforts. That is not true. This board failed kids, parents got fed up, and this is accountability.
