Twitter Web App : Safi Bahcall — On Hypnosis, Conquering Insomnia, Incentives, and More

Listen to my interview with Safi (Safi Bahcall) here:…

Twitter Web App : The movie title GOOD BOYS was very misleading to some…

Twitter Web App : It was a pleasant surprise at return from holidays to find a box with 10 copies of the 2nd Edition of #clinicalpredictionmodels! Despite efforts to be concise, the updated book is substantially more voluminous than the first edition.

iPhone : White people wiped entire civilizations and cultures off the planet for spices and Americans still dont know what a bay leaf is…

Twitter Web App : Only 3 days left to back my comic!! Magical girls and aliens!! Go, GO NOW YOU FOOLS

Twitter Web App : Athletic glory, even in the sleepy world of weekend races, intoxicates in a way that professional success never can.…

Twitter Web App : Matthew Cassinelli Wintertime could shift the entire rhythm 1-2 hours later *possibly* but generally speaking it just is what it is. And it doesnt change if you get up early, or sleep late. Golden hours remain the same. : )

Twitter Web App : Todays new music recommendation: Leo Brouwer: Guitar Sonatas, contemporary classical music for the guitar by one of our leading Cuban composers, performed by Ricardo Gallén. Heres a video on how the album was made:…

iPhone : “Scott demonstrates the skill and long-range vision of a writer we need right now. The World Doesn’t Require You requires a commitment from readers, one that will be greatly repaid in literary satisfaction.”…

Twitter Web App : Caroline Casey I often say we have a lot of nieces & nephews (which is true), but I want a better one, that doesnt hint at a tone of apology. Will think about it!

iPhone : revealing -- not surprising, revealing -- how deeply & instantly offended certain people become at the suggestion that slavery is the foundational plot point and economic/societal element of American history and its enduring influence requires probing, analysis and education

Twitter Web Client : How do you think a man who has

1) pressed his erection against his colleagues

2) thrown a woman against a window for sexually rejecting him

3) told a woman she will never work in media and politics again if she doesnt have sex with him

will cover a race full of women?

Twitter Web App : Forever grateful to Hot Girl Summer, since it helped me come to terms with what is and probably always will be my favorite genre, Sad Alto Autumn…

Twitter Web Client : At so/too many points in LA history, it was black Angelenos who fought to tear down the racist laws and policies that made public spaces and neighborhoods only available to whites. Heres the story of one of those people: Betty Hill.…

YoruFukurou : Casey Newton It’s hard to keep it short and also keep it comprehensive and timely. (Sigh.) We’re martyrs to our art, Casey.

Twitter Web App : Senator John Cornyn The massive global impact of climate change on future generations is nothing to make lame jokes about. Progressives are rightly furious at your intransigence.

YoruFukurou : A lovely ode to Microsoft Encarta, which has seen its sunset but is still being used all over the world…

Twitter Web App : Danya Glabau Wow, nothing like trying to reverse-engineer an ever-changing algorithm in order to protect your mental health from trolls and abuse. As ever, any sufficiently *crappy* technology is *also* indistinguishable from magic.

iPhone : In Ohio, we remember.

“I was looking at some of those big, once-incredible job-producing factories...Those jobs have left Ohio. Theyre all coming back. Theyre all coming back. Dont move. Dont sell your house.

President Donald Trump
