Чарівний Червоногородський замок розташований в мальовничому куточку України, оточеному червоними пісковиками, в самому серці глибокого каньйону річки Джурин. І саме червоний колір цих скель надав назву цій надзвичайній місцевості. Каньйон описує майже повне коло навколо споруди, нагадуючи амфітеатр.
I laud thee Howard Schultz, a leader of such worth
Your mind for coffee, a veritable rebirth
Your vision helped create a behemoth so grand
Your priceless legacy will ever remain in this land
More figures on how parental income influenced where #students go to #college. Top income kids go to top colleges—no surprise, thanks to #legacy #admissions. Public #schools seem to be more fair. My college looks a bit better in this study—since it didn’t look so good in the economic diversity study over the weekend. #highereducation https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2023/09/11/upshot/college-income-lookup.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare
Our environmental laws are failing us in the face of the climate crisis
"If we don’t stop this rampant approval of fossil fuel projects, by 2073 we’ll be living through the large-scale destruction of ecosystems and will have breached multiple tipping points, leading to the collapse of our food systems and hellish heat and fires."
"If we don’t get this right, we’re not just making every day Threatened Species Day, we’re headed towards a toxic, sad, future, with damage and destruction that cannot be unwound. There are no second chances or take backs, it’s now or never."
Prof Tim Flannery is a former climate commissioner, chief councillor at the Climate Council and one of Australia’s leading writers on climate change

My dad died in September 2021 at the age of 78 of an undiagnosed #myeloma. That was abrupt, he died 3 weeks after arriving at the hospital, I still often think about that terrible month.
Beside having been a school #teacher, he painted is whole life since the age of 15, and left a large #legacy of #paintings and #drawings. I immediately thought about #digitizing his complete work, even if it looked like a huge undertaking, probably for both said and unsaid reasons.
#OHSU is merging with #Legacy Health who thinks pregnant women are cash cows to milk in another hospital, not one near where they live. Nurses are contemplating a strike. America's highly profitable healthcare system remains the best in the universe b/c very rich people keep getting richer as everyone else bows to their power and wealth for generations. For-profit medicine is the best, isn't it? Oh, Holy Political Parties, where is there an ass we can kiss to get some service around here?

@corujosilva Tricky questions. #Sci-fi is most often restricted to a definition as a short form for science fiction’ but can also refer to any speculative fiction, including fantasy, horror, anime and comics. #Digimon would be a significant reach for definition 1 but falls within definition 2. #Legacy is easier - a franchise with over 2 decades of evolution would seem to have its legacy tropes, elements and characters.
A quotation from Cowper, William:
All has its date below; the fatal hour

This episode is sooooo 1980s/1990s culture and urban politics crossover. The "street thug" villains are dressed like they're going to start breakdancing at any moment. I can't remember what happens—does the Enterprise resolve the situation by saving the rec center?

Article defending the flames of destruction and a legacy of inaction over-capitalized at the expense of the future: now the present.
For #Peopleofcolour within the #LGBTQ+ #community, this is compounded by the fact that generations before us had multiple #restrictions placed upon them, further limiting their ability to cement their #work in a way that benefits #futuregenerations.
Regarding the blocking of Canadian news, can we at least place the #blame where it belongs?
So Facebook and Google had a choice: they could continue to do this, and pay for the privilege, or they could stop linking to it. There was no third option.
We forced the choice on them; blame our #politicians.

Techies: You didn't take any history classes, did you?
CLM: Why would we need those?
Techies: Anyways... as long as C-18 is in effect, you won't get any traffic or exposure.
CLM: That sucks! Fix it!
Techies: I give up.
Techies: So, anyways... what are you going to do now? Your site traffic has #collapsed, Canadian media #websites have essentially fallen off the face of the planet as far as the general public is concerned. Are you going to ask the #government to revoke C-18?
Government: We Shall ...
Techies: SHUT UP!
Techies: So, #Facebook and #Google were driving #traffic to your #websites by showing #summaries of your #stories, with links back to your sites. Making them #pay to do so made no sense, to them or anyone else, so they stopped linking to your sites.
CLM: #Little media.
Techies: Anyways... #Facebook started doing the same thing. They showed an #excerpt, and #linked back to your sites. So lots and lots and lots more people visited your websites than you were getting before.
Techies: So, anyways... #Google started #featuring #synopses of your #stories on their #news and #search #pages, which gave people an idea of what the story was, and a #link to your site so they could read the whole thing.
Techies: Maybe it was fifth percentile.
#Government: Big Tech ...
Techies: Cram it.
Techies: See, the way it worked was, you #posted #stories on your #websites. The only people who would see your stories were those who typed "wha-wha-wha dot canadianmedia dot com" into their #browsers and came to your websites.
Techies: Were you proud when they told you you were in the tenth #percentile of your class at U?
Techies: I need a drink.
#Government: If We Do Not Stand Up to American Big Tech ...
Techies: Don't make me come over there.
Techies: Those stories are on your websites.
CLM: Horrors! Choice? What choices do they have?
Techies: Well, the #Internet is the main one.
CLM: The Internet? What's that?
CLM: Uh... ya, that's us, the media.
Techies: No, you're just part of the Canadian media landscape.
CLM: ... Part of?
Techies: Yes. A small part.
CLM: But we're the media!
Techies: Oh, brother. It's gonna be *that* kind of day.
#Lawyers: If they try to make Big Tech link, and pay to link, we've got a slam-dunk case. At least we'll make money.
#CLM: LA LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU LA LA
#Government: We Must Stand Up ...
#Techies: Oh, shut up.
Government: Uh, what? You had us pass a law saying they have to pay you if they link to you. And now you want us to force them to link to you. So we'd be saying the law is now that Big Tech has to give money to you guys whether they want to or not?
CLM: Yes! Exactly!
Techies: This is even dumber than we thought it would be.
Techies: We warned you.
#Facebook: Ya, us either. I guess we'll stop linking to Canadian media sites.
Government: They can't do that, can they?
Techies: That's gonna get old fast.
#Government: If We Don't Stand Up ...
Techies. Told you.
Techies: Uh, not really.
Canadian #Legacy #Media: No, that's #hard. We liked it better when almost everyone bought one of our #newspapers every day, because we more or less own them all. There was no #competition. It was #great.
#Government: We Shall Stand Up to American Big Tech, and They Shall Pay to Link.
CLM: But we don't know how to #monetize that.
Govt: Uh, for what?
CLM: You know, because they have money, and we can't figure out how to get some ourselves.
Govt: I'm not sure...
Getting this as a notification over at #Facebook / #Meta. Makes me wonder if there is an active way to get #News #WorldNews here on the #Fediverse / #Mastodon cause this here hurts as a person who loves to stay up to date in the world news.
@smokeygeo @gwagner If something has a negative impact on minorities that have suffered unimaginable injustices that persist to this day then that something is, um, wrong? It seems sensible that lawmakers consider making that something illegal. There is an investigation of the issue. Have you seen the Harvard stats? Also, just because something else contributed to the continuing inequity does not mean that #legacy #admission are ok.
Time to re-up this 2004 letter to #Harvard Magazine.
2 decades & 2 kids (age 10 & 12) later, same words still apply: "Should [our kids] ever decide to apply to and be accepted at Harvard, we would not want them to have any doubt in their minds that it is because of their abilities and future potential—not because their parents are Harvard alumni. We urge Harvard to end its policy of favoring children of alumni in the college admissions process."
Biden Administration to investigate #legacy #admissions at Harvard, or the practice of affirmative action for white people. Earlier studies have shown that without legacy admissions, Harvard could achieve racial balance/diversity goals. #highereducation https://www.nytimes.com/2023/07/25/us/politics/harvard-admissions-civil-rights-inquiry.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare
The first #violent #policing of #gay #spaces happened in 1903 at the #Ariston #bathhouse in #NewYorkCity. It set the stage for #Stonewall and other #antigay #incidents in #America, but is an often-#forgottenmoment in #queer #history.
Update. If #universities believe they need #legacy #admissions to keep up alumni donations, note that #JohnsHopkins phased out legacy admissions (2010-2020) and even increased alumni donations.
2) The #limitations for #Tweeetdeck and how #RateLimits are fucking that over hard. Plus the fact they #removed it from #Legacy instantly after #announcing that Tweetdeck was going to blue exclusively. That is terrible #business and pushes people away. Like me.
It’s human instinct to make your mark — to prove you existed. Whether through cave paintings from epoch’s past or a handprint on a sidewalk, we have a need to leave an impact on our world. Are you ready to transform your life? Tired of just existing and want to live a life of passion and purpose? Use the link to schedule a free consultation to see if life coaching is right for you.
I’ve been thinking about “what I want to get out of life” a lot lately. Maaaaaybe it was a little bit of an existential crisis, too, but that’s kind of par for the course for me, anyway. 👀
So, anyway, I wrote this poem to gather my thoughts:
Who am I?
I am an amalgamation of everything I’ve seen, done, thought, imagined, and interacted with.
I’m more than a face.
I am a collection ideas, voices, passions— A force. A type of strength that can’t be seen.
I’m more than a body.
I am a legacy. What I want and what I envision will not die, even though I someday will.
I’ve realized that, at the very least, I want to do what I can to help make the world a better place, even if it’s in the smallest of ways. I can be a wave that creates a ripple effect— a wave that helps carry someone else to shore.

Would you rather do something great for all of humanity but be remembered as one of the worst people who ever lived, or do nothing with any lasting impact in your life and be remembered as a hero to all people?
Happy to hear about the affirmative action ruling. I know this is controversial, but race-based admissions don’t make sense to me. If anything affirmative action should be income based. Affluent kids prep for admissions to elite colleges which students of lower incomes cannot afford. And get rid of legacy preferences. That one step might help reduce the wealth gap.
Legal experts - cannot IRS rules be revised to say that for a tax-exempt status, legacy needs to go? #affirmativeaction #legacy
