A little piece of #history in my husband’s office. An antique post office mailbox. The door is original, but someone made a wooden box for it to convert it into a bank. I couldn’t find the vintage, but I believe this combination style was used in the 1960s.

I just completed mandatory IRB (Institutional Review Board) training to apply for an exception for a proposed research survey. One of the things the training covered was reporting of unexpected research outcomes. I was telling one of my friends in Research about it and they sent me this meme. 🤣

A little late night reading.

With Black History Month drawing to a close, I thought I'd re-up this thread. It was originally posted in August but seems appropriate to share again now.

It's the story of one of the most inspiring people I've had the good fortune to cross paths with.
Myles Higgins @Myles_Away
Many have heard the story of “Come From Away” & the people of Newfoundland & Labrador who helped so many stranded airline passengers during 911.

I wonder how many have heard another story, of how a black man was “born” in a place where nobody had ever seen a person of colour?

This is that story.

On the last day of #BlackHistoryMonth I wanted to share the article by a scholar that won me my bet (that I couldn't find 30 bits of Black history in #Arizona because there "weren't Black people here until WWII")

I’ve been feeling incredibly grateful since Mr. Bouzy hired my company to manage fact-checking here. I wanted to start off right, so I’ve been working hard on a new logo to emphasize our attention to detail, and I think I’ve nailed it. I look forward to working with this wonderful community.

Laws may work well in theory, in practice, not so much.

"The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread."

"Increasing temperatures—2023 was the hottest year on record—are making winters balmy. Climate change has shrunk the Northern Hemisphere’s snowpacks since the 1980s, while California’s first snow was only 7.5 inches: 25% of the historical average."

The Philadelphia Orchestra’s home is being renamed Marian Anderson Hall in honor of the pioneering Black American contralto, a rare case of an artist’s name replacing a corporation.

In the Pod yesterday, someone said we should read a book by a woman writer for March, Women's History Month.

I didn't plan this, but the March book is The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, a book by and about women. Discussion begins March 23, 2024.

Grade 9 or 10- I took typing on electric typewriters as summer class.

Then again in library technician college, a semester of keyboarding and then learning Word. I learned so many Word tricks I never poked around to find as a user. Very useful.
Myron Clifton @PresidentKamalasHand
8th grade, 5th period. Typing class.

We all used those old but functional typewriters, learned QWERTY, and had to pass by typing 35 words per minute WPM w/ 0 errors

We could check out typewriters to practice at home!

At one point I was able to type 70 WPM w/no errors.

You?

definitely measles is a cause, so is COVID, which is not over and is airborne, like measles. #WearAMask , #GetVaccinated .

Measles can cause “immune amnesia,” where the immune system loses its ability to fight other viruses that people were previously immune to. So that's fun. #GetFuckingVaccinated

Cruelty is the thing with Abbott and his white dudes. They dominate the fundamentalist churches, cosplay ammosexual battalions, top the SA misogyny pyramid and take lead on bigotry of every kind. If there’s a group that needs to lead change in this country it’s me and my fellow white guys.

Think about this: All the nonsense talk in circles of the U.S. corporate news media about “should the Democrats have Biden step down get someone else to run?” while no one in the media say “shouldn’t Republicans tell a 91-count indicted DT to end his bid for the WH?”

Redlining is an evil part of #Arizona Black (and Indigenous) history that is going to keep echoing until we address it with reparations. Every town in AZ was either sundown or segregated 4-5 ways (Black, Indigenous "Mexican", "Chinese ", Anglo) #BlackHistoryMonth

You have the 1st amendment right to protest, but: not like that, not there, not for that reason, etc., etc.

In many ways, this is a mostly invisible aspect of aging in America. It's not just Covid or lack of mitigation in long term care facilities either. If you don't appear to be aging as shown in commercials, your value (yes, value) decreases. The thing about aging is it comes for all of us eventually.

Great question, K! I leave $5 for big clean days, like when we leave or sheets changed and floor cleaned and $2-3 for refresh/small days, garbage removed, coffee restored. We are two adults who like to think we are pretty tidy. More if you have more people or lots of mess.

And as former hotel room cleaner, please also leave tips for room cleaners. I worked at smaller, mountain resort cabins so work was finite and turnover was limited over season and decades ago. I suspect demands on cleaners have gotten higher with less time to clean and wash.

You are right here it is again!!
My husband and I went out for breakfast. The couple next to us ordered $70 of food. They left a $5 tip. The server was so upset- she was kind and attentive! Please remember to take care of the waitstaff- they are taking care of you and you get a day off from cooking!

I respouted it today after I realized that I should have left it. I shouldn’t have a let a few negative comments outweigh the positive ones. I didn’t know I could delete responses either! Lesson learned. I am warmed by the support I got! I can be too sensitive at times. I need to work on that!
Andrea Ball @aball2005
I just figured out why most of my interactions yesterday are 404 today. You brought up a good topic and when I commented (and received replies) it was a lively discussion. I am sorry people were abusive. People should think about why something rubs them the wrong way.
