Y'all, it starts locally. MOST of this nation's current issues began locally. And if you haven't done anything at your local level to state your say and make change, YOU are just as much a part of the problem.
Don't like our current laws? What can *you* do to fix it? Have you ever been to a City or County Council meeting? Have you ever been to a School Board meeting? Have you ever attended your local Caucus meetings? Have you considered *running* for any of these?
Here we go again, #Utah. Most counties in Utah look like this in sewage data. Time to at least offer KN95 masks in schools again & battening down the hatches in non-remote workplaces?
Remember: N95 or equivalent masks & education work. Mask mandates, overall in the USA, don't.
Just found this. I don't think I knew I was on a list of "who to follow at SXSW" back in 2018. I used to be on these types of lists all the time. Now sometimes I enjoy the privacy. Sometimes I miss it.
AI robot scammers are out in full force on dating apps guys. Be careful. Watch for inconsistencies in what they say and what's on their bio. They won't answer all your questions. They don't completely make sense. And give very generic answers that can be Googled. #onlinedating
I collected a bunch of the history as I researched what my Grandfather did while I led and kicked off social media for the church in 2010-2012. He had a higher position but there were a lot of parallels in what we accomplished and the challenges we faced with media.
I think I’m going to start telling some really fun Mormon motion picture history over on my @marysnapcob TikTok account. My Grandpa & namesake led BYU Motion Picture Studios in the 70s & 80s & succeeded Wetzel Whitaker. Much of LDS culture today is a result of those media efforts
All @WordPress Workflow plugins suck. Want a HUGE opportunity that will attract major newsrooms? Build a Workflow plugin that is actually user experience-focused and understands the needs of a typical large news room w/ multiple publications, editors, authors, and processes. Hmm.
It would be nice to see more open/distributed governance through Blockchain to all of this, moving forward - @Google has a great opportunity to lead here and they'll have the competitive advantage if they do. #GoogleIO
The new open approach to @Google Home that Google is taking with @Samsung, announced at #googleio today, is refreshing! Let's hope @Apple and @amazon can join in. I bet they don't - they'll either create their own open standards, or stay proprietary.
At the end of the #googleio keynote, @Google gave an interesting tease of their augmented reality glasses that translate on the fly and I'm sure do other things. I really liked the functionality of Google Glass, but these actually look like glasses. Things are getting exciting!
It's good that both the Left and the Right feel the world is broken. What scares me is that both the Left, and the Right are measuring that brokenness by core values they cannot and will not reconcile. When dogma fuels political disagreement over data, I fear War is imminent.
Do conservatives not realize that revoking Roe v. Wade essentially allows any state to ALLOW abortion, at will, in the 3rd trimester?
Yeah they can ban it entirely too & some states will. But I really wonder if conservatives cheering this on really know what they’re cheering for
I wonder how many conservatives have researched Roe v. Wade. The original Roe v. Wade basically broke down a fetus’s life into trimesters, banning state governments from allowing abortion in the third trimester.
Multiverse of Madness: Holy Crap!
2 things, not spoilers, and all I’m going to say:
1. It is Marvel’s most LGBTQ-friendly movie, yet!
And 2. It may be too scary for younger audiences. But if you love horror movies this will be your favorite Marvel movie of all time.
Men: @PPFA quoted me $400 without insurance and with my insurance, my vasectomy was completely free.
And @POTUS , isn’t it about time we force insurance companies to cover vasectomies as well now that Roe v. Wade looks like it’s being overturned?
OMG that “Under The Banner Of Heaven” on FX temple video! 😳
I remember when people were up in arms for the Big Love scene of temple clothes. When I worked for the church the last thing we wanted was mainstream media sharing video of Mormon temple ceremonies. They just did it.
Dear Men passing laws about women’s bodies: good luck with the child support bills on those children the women couldn’t abort as fetuses in a system already unfair against men when those women divorce your ass. Especially in more conservative states that expect women to not work.
As I’m frosting the brownie cake my daughter wanted for her birthday today, my teenager overhears me say, “Don’t fall apart on me!” They evidently know too much because they responded, “Dad, I think that sentence sums up your love life.” 😂
I almost took a job at Twitter with their Data Science team on the ads platform a year ago and then got sick halfway through the interview process and couldn’t finish it. That could have been interesting…
Dating apps in 2022 be like:
Me: Short small talk on the dating app…
Her: ”What are you looking for? I hope to find a long-term relationship and see what happens.”
Me: “Same. Let’s get coffee or a drink.”
Her: “No, I don’t like dating strangers.”
Dating in 2022 be like:
1. Her: “Men are intimidated by a woman w/ her shit together.”

6. Her: … 👻🦗
Finally got 2G plugs to fit in my ears after getting my ears pierced. This was my ultimate goal & I won't go bigger, but this seemed to be the min size to be able to get cool ear plugs like these. Can I just say that, I think it's REALLY cool that I can fit things in my ears now?
I have Google alerts set up for my name in order to track news mentions of me. Lately though, I'm seeing mentions online of a lot more local libraries carrying my books. That used to not be a thing other than book stores.
Which, can I say I think is really, really awesome?
