I've conversed with people I would never have met, and learned about things I'd never imagined --> #SaySomethingGoodAboutTwitter
Really wondering what prompted hotel attys to try this case: Jury Awards Erin Andrews $55M in Lawsuit - ABC News - abcn.ws/1RwG5Ag
Do they make an Anole size Go Pro cam, yet? Just curious...
I can see rocket launches from my window... Congrats @SpaceX
! Perfect way to end the week. #FridayFeeling
Kasich is making a strong case for staying in the game tonight. He's managed to stay above the fray; why can't Rubio or Cruz? #GOPDebate
The point that Romney took money/endorsement from Trump previously is valid. If going to attack, should give the $$ back.
If you're going to get ahead, R'pubs, you'll need some strategery...(though not from that word's maker). Get creative. It's time for change.
Forceful speeches by the party's nice guy (Mitt should've run...), icy letters by other leaders, and even attack ads only fuel Trump's fire.
Doing the same things over and over and expecting a different result is...? Well, seems like what R'pubs doing to diffuse Trump surge.
Still chuckling at Norah O'Donnell's glare at male author who claimed modern dads don't have support like women did/do. Priceless.
The only thing that surprises me about this election season is the R'pub's being surprised at the surliness. This is party of Rush, Coulter.
Sidebar: Although Spotlight might've made it seem the movement started up there, the story/cases were active in Florida well before that.
Bummed The Martian didn't win - it was one of my faves. But, still pleased for Spotlight, as that was an excellent movie as well.
Added twist/possibility: What if the person striking through the text is the one who wrote it, seeking to create controversy & discourse?
Re my soapbox posts: If advising Zuck, I'd caution him to address the behavior, not the speech. Not cool to cross out other people's words.
To that end, isn't the entire point of either side of the debate that concluding something negative about someone w/o foundation is wrong?
And, there is absolutely no foundation to conclude that action as being anything other than alternative speech to the original post.
Whoever chose to write the alternative viewpoint on the wall is not a public figure, but an employee in a private company.
I'm not referring to political candidates -- though even w/them, there are limits. I'm referring to things like Facebook story yesterday.
In some cases, where public figure such may not be actionable, but for other general members of the public, it is likely defamatory.
Folks creating/spreading headlines that often include conclusions such as "racist comments" or "bigoted ideas" - best to avoid conclusions.
Getting on my soapbox for a minute. -->
D'oh! : The IRS learns 390,000 more taxpayers may have been victims of May 2015 hack money.us/1TJ0Tua
Interesting argument: Donald Trump claims he can't release tax returns while being audited. One tax attorney agrees. wpo.st/KsAG1
Now, with that last article in mind, scroll back to my tweets re: employer "colleges" as a higher ed fix. **drops the mike** ;)
Research indicates 60% of Gen Z'ers (aka our future) would welcome employer training in their field over college. shrm.org/hrdisciplines/…
Zuck needs to read the part in that last article about California law related to employer coercion. That's one that can cut both ways.
Re: Facebook "wall" writing: More good info on political speech/activity in the workplace.: littler.com/political-spee…
That said, I'm certain that if Apple/feds put their smartest folks on it, they can come up with a solution that meets everyone's needs.
Then the question becomes does that sliver of possibility outweigh the rights of general public to liberty as ensured by our Constitution.
Sure, there's a "slight" chance that any associated parties in contact with perp haven't dumped their burner phones and disappeard, but -->
In any situation where the govt has a perp's phone they can't get into, the deed they needed to avoid is already done.
To pose Apple/FBI argument as needs of victims over society is unfair. Phone hack won't bring them back; any info on phone already outdated.
Some legal insight related to hidden challenges in FB "writing" on the wall: hr.blr.com/HR-news/Perfor…
However, there is also bigger question of whether political speech should be supported using employer facilities b/c opens many other doors.
Both types of speech are relevant and protected. Employers need to ensure they don't protect one type at the expense of the other.
Good intent, but double edge here: Zuckerberg condemns Facebook staff for defacing Black Lives Matter slogans newsweek.com/facebook-staff…
Me: Before I get into my plan, I think Dr. Carson needs to give us his recipe for fruit salad. Why hasn't he published that for the people?
If I were in the #GOPDebate
I would've "fake" attacked Carson or Kasich, and let them run the clock down on every question. -->
It is not chaos to allow a business to use legal appeals to challenge questionable court order. Rather, it's mandated checks/balance.
Rubio doesn't understand the Apple dispute. And Cruz doesn't understand the law. It wasn't a search/seizure order. Was All Writs Act.
Very poorly managed debate by CNN. The commentators are trying to solicit arguments, even with level-headed Kasich. #GOPDebate
Problem with sending transportation, education, etc. back to the states is that they can't afford it. States count on fed funds. #GOPDebate
Find charities that will get the majority of funds/donations to the victims, and give generously, folks. :)
Very concerned for the folks affected by the tornadoes/storms over past few days. Mobile homes often aren't insured, which means total loss.
And, yes...I was doing research and writing a boring thesis while everyone else was at frat parties. I'm a total geek. Now you know. :)
How do I know this? It was subject of my undergrad thesis in psychology. No biggie. I'm sure other studies have followed w/same results. ;)
It's much greater challenge for a woman to get where Hillary has. Often, everything a woman says is deemed negative, even if she's right.
There's a gender imbalance imposed on the matter. Women are judged far more harshly for their communications. Lying by men = prowess.
