 Slate’s Julia Turner wrote in a 2012 New York Times Magazine piece, the hashtag “gives the writer the opportunity to comment on his own emotional state, to sarcastically undercut his own tweet, to construct an extra layer of irony, to offer a flash of evocative imagery or to deliver metaphors with striking economy.” And the wordplay is only half the equation. Hashtags also act like portals into alternate corners of Internet discourse: Click on one, and you’ll find everyone who’s been coaxed into the same marketing gimmick (#ItsMillerTime) or discovered the same semisecret code (#EggplantFridays). These pathways are being constantly rewired, so it can be hard to pinpoint what a hashtag signified a couple of days or years before. Search for #KillAllWhiteMen now, and you’ll mostly find people commenting on the meaning of the hashtag itself. Should we call the cops on them, too?

The faster technology improves and surpasses human capability, the more obvious it becomes that being human is not merely about being capable, it’s about relating to other humans.

 Too much of our culture is invitation-only or curated by private companies with profit in mind.

“And if you don’t feel you belong, if you don’t feel you’re part of your society, it becomes easier to leave – and it becomes easier to hate. It becomes easier to go against the very society whose passport you hold and whose language you speak.” 

“We really have to address the core problems which are making a large generation of young people feel hopeless, marginalized, excluded from public life and we have to bring them back. I think, to this end, the UN has a role to play.”

@jimgroom It's terrifying to exit a campus for one's own thing.  Also risky on multiple levels.  But excellent.  Nothing like it.

In Barcelona, Ada Colau, a left-wing politician, narrowly defeated Mayor Xavier Trias. After wiping away some tears, Ms. Colau raised her fist in victory and told supporters, “We have shown you can do politics in another way.”
Ms. Colau, a former activist who opposed housing evictions during Spain’s banking crisis, added: “Ordinary people, who normally don’t have any power, had a historic opportunity and used it. Congratulations.”

Wanted to put the whole Instrumental saga in my own words. Legally/emotionally as far as I can go right now but hope it makes things a bit clearer. Apologies for the length x http://www.independent.co.uk/…/james-rhodes-how-the-pianist…

simply being heard was one of the most effective ways of diminishing the shame and allowing myself to move on. Having my past witnessed and accepted with compassion and belief did more for my self-esteem than years of medication and therapy.

Settlement is such a misnomer- what's happening in Hebron is settlers and the army working together to mutilate a city

The streets in Hebron are sliced up with checkpoints- each a chance to beat, arrest or publicly humiliate the Palestinian residents

"It was mentioned that ‪#‎Israel‬ is the 11th happiest country in the world. Other organizations and institutions put it at the mid-30s or different statistics, but it doesn’t matter. I propose that what makes a country good isn’t whether it is happy or not, it’s about the ethics and morality of the country. When soldiers, when we, are conditioned and persuaded on a daily basis to subjugate and humiliate people and consider other human beings as less than human, I think that seeps in, and I think the soldiers, when they go home … they bring that back with them."

How the MacArthur Foundation is using grants to help release inmates: http://t.co/AuD2SGNW6O http://t.co/ER1kE5tlhR

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/IBTimes/status/603585211834568706

The foundation’s president said the grants are the first step in the Chicago-based charity’s plan to spend $75 million over five years to bring about reforms in the jails. "At the end of the day, what we're talking about is systemic change," MacArthur President Julia Stasch said.
what? 
The foundation has asked the selected jail systems to work with experts, judges, prosecutors, court administrators, police and corrections officials to design plans that make their systems run more efficiently, Stasch told the Associated Press. Of the 20 jail systems, half will be picked next year for a second round of funding ranging from $500,000 to $2 million to implement the plans.

it's about good.. and maybe never done.

harvard's: done. not good.

the only thing you can be the best at is developing your own self.

what has served me is diving into my own obliviousness... accept your lack of knowledge and use it as your own asset..
one of your biggest strengths is not knowing how things are supposed to be.

grab the good people around you
