If you're working on your resume tonight before applying to jobs this week, this is your reminder to remove passive language like "Responsible for" or "Duties Included". Opt for more POWERFUL action verbs. Need examples?

The bottom half of America, roughly 30 million Americans, now hold only 2% of the nation's wealth. Folks, this is unsustainable. The only way to grow the economy and hold on to our democracy is to expand the middle class. Otherwise, oligarchy will devolve into fascism.

Hard to stomach a Governor who spends millions of dollars on a political stunt, rails against the federal gov’t, refuses to respect the health guidelines of federal agencies & flaunts civil rights, but then demands billions from the federal gov’t when his State’s in trouble.

My wife made a point the other day that all of these devices with assistants (Alexa, Siri, etc.) all come as women by default so we’re training a whole new generation to see women as “staff” and I can’t stop thinking about that.

Just so we’re clear… I refuse to let my daughter grow up in a country where she has fewer rights than I did. And I know for a damn fact that I am not alone.

This @KenBurns documentary "The U.S. and the Holocaust" is so chilling in the way we see all the echoes today and seem to be making such similar mistakes.

something a mentor of mine once told me that i will pass along: a great way to stay curious/stretch yourself into something new is to pick a new-to-you obsession every season -- can be a word, a genre, an actor, a color, a place -- and curate your own little festival around it

Guys Covid is the number three cause of death right now, behind heart attack and cancer. The big difference is if you're next to someone who has a heart attack or cancer they can't pass them on to you.

Something I find myself thinking about is how much grief disabled people are carrying right now. The grief of losses to covid, the grief of eugenics being applauded by governments around the world, the grief of accessible events now reverting back to exclusion
