Fun Fact

16% of customers use Facebook, Twitter and the other major social networks to interact with businesses.

Good from Judith Butler: "I think we are living in anti-intellectual times, and that this is evident across the political spectrum. The quickness of social media allows for forms of vitriol that do not exactly support thoughtful debate. We need to cherish the longer forms."

Bay Area gonna Bay Area. Need to show progress on climate goals on paper, so plan to approve a non-binding policy that 60% of workers at large companies work from home, permanently. https://t.co/pnA2BLYhIs

Judy Shelton, Trump's Fed nominee, portrays herself as a champion of free markets and laissez-faire government. Except when it comes to her own backyard. https://t.co/UufcSHKzdn

On paper "homoerotic vampire thriller that is legitimately gory and scary but mostly has the vibe of an 80s teen comedy" sounds like a risky premise, but I watched part of Lost Boys the other night for the first time in a long time, and even in retrospect it totally works.

Many New Yorkers who left the city at the beginning of the pandemic rented homes in the Hamptons. Now many of them have decided to buy homes there.  https://t.co/j7HqIJtYkU

Yes they have. https://t.co/kGKzaPP3Rx

Rest in peace Ruth Bader Ginsburg - a true legend, an iconoclast, a glass ceiling breaker, and a feminist icon. She changed the world in so many incredible ways. Prayers, love and strength to her family during this dark time. I hope you have fun with Antonin Scalia in heaven...

The sign you've made it as a Jew in America is when you die people express hope that you will ascend to the Christian heaven https://t.co/Neo2DmUazu

1/ Two important @WSJ stories that should be read together. First, @amacker reports that roughly 1 million families who have fallen behind on their mortgage have not joined a forbearance program, and thus risk foreclosure when the moratorium ends. https://t.co/lYzZPImJuu

Every teenage skater I grew up with used to wonder what normal people did with their time. Every adult skater I know is struggling to adapt to the answer.

On this note, I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and I want to take a moment to apologize to all the girls I forced to watch skate videos. I once saw a comedian Tweet "skater's girlfriend looks like the worst job in the world" and, my God, truer words. https://t.co/R4TPL528cI

Scientists there have tattooed the periodic table with discoveries. In celebration of that, the table is now full of h/t element names like Lawrencium, Seaborgium, Californium and (of course) Berkelium.

Some context, for the unfamiliar. The Lawrence Berkeley National Lab is one of the most prominent labs in the world. It was instrumental to the Manhattan Project and has (so far) produced a dozen Nobel Laureates (from a range of backgrounds, a number of them immigrants).

The Trump Administration ordered the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to suspended diversity training on the grounds that it was "divisive, anti-American propaganda." Great scoop: https://t.co/9jGAq45VBb
