To increase workplace inclusiveness, tell people that everyone else in the office is pro-diversity. Conformity is more powerful than racism.
Tonn is out and SB 2 will keep him out hopefully from other departments https://t.co/izAewNUtCt
Open Vallejo @OpenVallejoEXCLUSIVE: Det. Jarrett Tonn has been served with a notice of intent to terminate his employment for violating policy in killing Sean Monterrosa. He is the first Vallejo officer in at least 20 years to face termination for an on-duty killing. 📷: Noah Berger for Open Vallejo https://t.co/0LZO6qTrNC
“When Germany surrendered, Ed and his men entered Hitler's Eagle's Nest where Ed managed to acquire a few bottles of cognac, a label indicating they were "for Fuhrer's use only." Later, he would use the cognac to toast his oldest son's Bar Mitzvah" https://t.co/vnkN8tlpEK
We Happy Few 506 @WeHappyFew506We are extremely saddened to hear of the death of Ed Shames. He was the last surviving officer of Easy Company. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time. A legend lost. https://t.co/qjhR8xqUFR #BandofBrothers https://t.co/ooTZy6pcXE
I agree with this
Jay Rosen @jayrosen_nyuHere's how @mehdirhasan replied when I asked him what he meant in saying, “Journalists should have a bias. A bias towards democracy.” (Feb. 2021) https://t.co/Tc9YpvgzPK https://t.co/NtiH7J5iut
SF’s policy failures (ie, housing and overdoses) rightfully get a lot of attention, but its successes are real, too, and particularly on covid, have saved a lot of lives. https://t.co/gmmVpHXrH2
Bob Wachter @Bob_WachterAs we rethink behaviors in face of possible new threats, a reminder that SF – w/ 78% full vax rate, and sensible mask & other policies since Mar 2020 – has had 672 Covid deaths, 1/3rd the US per capita rate. If US had matched SF, ~500,000 people who died of Covid would be alive.
Why we need to have *test-to-stay* programs for school. Your child MIGHT have been exposed? Keep at home straight for 10-14+ days? NO. Thats harmful. Test each AM for 7 days. Each day Neg -> Go to school Quarantines are information problems. Rapid test solve this issue.
Christopher Ingraham @_cingrahamI got a minor breakthrough infection and my kids, who were asymptomatic and tested negative the whole time, will be out of school for three weeks by the time it's all over. It's madness. https://t.co/AGFinVWAHF
Live-action Cowboy Bebop Episode 6 is the most subversive thing I've seen on TV in years. It's a direct challenge to the cult of avoidant attachment style that has come to dominate American culture.
I do! Also we could have (and still could going forward) increase global vaccine supply by giving out half-doses of the Moderna vaccine.
Josh You @justjoshinyou13Remember when delaying second doses had an obvious short term benefit and the public health establishment didn't go for it bc of speculative long-run harms and now it's pretty clear the short dose schedule was also really bad in the long run?
What’s interesting is the authorities in Canada and the UK both did the right thing on dose spacing. With their single-payer health systems they are accustomed to solving resource optimization problems, American regulators are oriented to blocking scammers.
Now that the Cuomo brothers are toast, we should talk about how Andrew Cuomo’s policy of “disbarring” contractors for cost overruns ended up backfiring by making MTA bidding even less competitive and more expensive than ever.
The parents are not being charged for “raising him wrong,” but for buying him a weapon that was illegal for him, actively encouraging him to use it and telling him “not to get caught.” So, not really the best test case to use for this principle?
Radley Balko @radleybalkoUnless there's clear evidence of complicity, we should be extremely uncomfortable with the idea of charging parents for crimes committed by their children.

Liz Harrington @realLizUSANEW! President Donald J. Trump: "Anybody that doesn’t think there wasn’t massive Election Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election is either very stupid, or very corrupt!" https://t.co/QFjeJHt2SP
I have no idea how typical this is, or even whether it's accurate, but thought I'd share the anecdote. I was pretty startled. I told her that most Americans, being an insular and self-absorbed people, rarely think about China or any foreign country.
I guess the closest thing I've ever seen to that sort of mass national enmity in the U.S. was the Islamophobia and obsession with terrorism in the early 2000s. That was kind of terrifying. It was something I'd read about in books, but never seen.
Good to see Paul Romer fighting the good fight against the weird, bad anti-booster movement.
Paul Romer @paulmromerThe anti-boooster rebels said that 1 dose is good; 2 doses is great; and 3 does is selfish, immoral, evil. They left left logic and fact behind. They moved onto the realm of performative morality that I cannot comprehend; and to which, I know not how to respond. 3/N
