As someone who bikes a fair amount

in New York City, I’d like to see people hailing cabs in the bike lane more into the idea of getting a high five as I cruise past.

"The outrage that has emerged since the tape of Sterling’s remarks was first made public seems to betray a kind of willful collective naïveté. Our public shock suggests a belief that the views expressed by Sterling are out of the ordinary—despite the evidence indicating otherwise, despite the visible disparities between races in every meaningful statistic, despite the protestations of those who are subjected to the dictates of race in this country."

This is glorious and even thought it doesn’t fit in the range of all the paranormal, creepy and science I usually post, I MUST share

It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.

It doesn’t require you to touch anything (like bSafe) or shake your phone (like Nirbhaya) to send the distress signal. Kitestring is smarter, because it doesn’t need an action to alert people, it needs inaction.

MORE INFORMATION

I have wanted something like this for my entire life!!!!!!!!

If the dictum of good writing is “write what you know,” what do women and people of color know? What dreams and nightmares do they have? What are their battles and fantasies? What stories aren’t we hearing from them?

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).

Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.

Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?

People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.

These people literally don’t even know what foodstamps are.

What the what? HOW IS THIS SO GOOD?!?

I have this problem sometimes with albums that are achingly good: I fear listening to anything else by the artist. What if it isn’t as excellent? It’s not that I would think less of him or her, but before that second step everything remains pristine. And is it so wrong to want someone we respect to remain pristine, especially in this era of constant criticism. (For example, this article manages to convey some surprisingly deep disappointment for the opening segment of the Oscars, MERE MINUTES AFTER IT AIRED.)

In a world (wide web) where everyone is given a voice, and most use it to denigrate other, much more talented people, I like to take a few and let an artist and his/her creation just be perfect before seeing what else they have done.
