So I have to say that I am greatly enjoying Stitch Fix as a way to explore some styles that I often wouldn't take the initiative to go out and shop for on my own. It's definitely not the same as an actual, in-person personal shopper, but they have succeeded in making me feel that they're actually listening to my feedback, which is an accomplishment for a shop-by-mail company.

Full disclosure - the link below is a referral link, if you happen to click through it and choose to sign up, I'll get a small credit. But I'm primarily posting this because I'm really happy that this service has lived up to my expectations and desires.
Get your own personal stylist. Hand-selected women’s fashion shipped free, straight to your door. Try on at home risk-free.

Google Hangouts update

You can now invite anyone to join your group chat simply by sharing a unique link.

Instead of adding each member to the group one by one, you can open the group’s options page to enable joining by link. Once enabled, anybody with the link can join the conversation. This means that even if you don’t have someone in your contact list, you can still quickly add them to your Hangouts conversation by sending a link instead. You can disable joining by link at any time so that you are always in control of your conversations.

Joining by link is rolling out on all platforms starting today, so you should see this available on your device over the next few days. It will now be easier than ever to bring the right people together.

In addition to group link sharing, you can also easily find your group conversations by searching for the group name or participant name. This is available with the latest update on Android and will be available on iOS soon.

I am hype. In particular I love the age diversity amongst Overwatch's characters.

Trump's nomination is proof of what H.L. Mencken said, “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”

My estimation of Somerville mayor Curtatone just went up:

“My unwavering support for our police officers does not and cannot preempt our commitment to addressing systemic racism in our nation,” Curtatone said in a statement to Boston.com. “I’ve made very clear to our officers that we should be thankful for—and reinforce—what we have here in Somerville: a safer community thanks to the highest quality policing by a force dedicated to community policing, de-escalation, proper use of force, and anti-bias awareness.”

https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2016/07/20/somerville-police-union-asks-mayor-remove-black-lives-matter-banner-city-hall
Somerville police officers are asking that the city’s mayor remove a banner supporting the “Black Lives Matter” movement from City Hall and replace it with one proclaiming “All Lives Matter.” In a Tuesday letter addressed to Mayor Joseph Curtatone, the Somerville Police Employee’s Association, the bargaining unit for 90-95 patrol officers, called the city’s support of the …

I'm glad to see progress being made in this area (note: "online sexual extortion" here mostly means revenge porn and other non-consensual pornography).

Of course, the bill has only been introduced, not actually passed. But here's hoping.
A new bill proposed this week by Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) and Rep. Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) would establish sexual extortion as a unique federal crime. The language of the bill covers extortion...

That's definitely a step in the right direction. I hope the leadership will allow it to go through without anyone attaching irrelevant amendments that aren't acceptable to one party or another.

"The only company who can run a gambling operation in Counter-Strike is us."

What do you think CS:GO's weapon cases are aside from games of chance? You can even cash out the results.

This is a good analogy.
 
I have been told how dangerous being in the sun is by my white friends. How it will burn their skin, and how they have to take all these precautions when they are exposed to the sun. From the time they were kids they were warned about the dangers of sun exposure. They will go as far as changing the clothes they wear, and for some they fear being exposed to the sun at all.

How weird.

The sun doesn't hurt me, and never has. When I plan on going out, I never once bother to think about the sun. I can be exposed to the sun for hours. I have gotten darker when I've been exposed to the sun, but I've never been afraid or overly cautious of it. I hear people telling me about sun burns, but, I don't get burned...the sun can not really be all that bad?

I've heard stories on the news about the dangers of sun burns, and I've seen data recording the dangers of the sun exposure. You can't believe everything you hear on TV. It'd do folks some good to be grateful for all the good the sun does. Its so silly how scared white people are of their kids being exposed to the sun. Teaching their kids to be cautious of it, prevent burns or worse. They are being ridiculous, because my kid is fine when he's exposed to it.

How can I believe you when you tell me what the sun does to you? I've seen sunburns, but they can't really hurt that bad or people would never go outside. I'm pretty sure we can all agree we need the sun don't we? My friends that say they hate the sun are taking it too far. Plus, explain to me, how I have white friends that have never burned? Ya know, I think some people are exaggerating this whole "sun exposure is dangerous" thing. You can tell me about painful and negative experiences that your family and friends have had in the sun, but I just can't believe you. You really should just get over it.

Is it something white people are doing to make your experiences in the sun so painful and dangerous? If you taught your kids how to act they wouldn't get sunburned. Campaigning for protection and safety when exposed to the sun seems unnecessary. I think sunblock is a waste. Just people being ungrateful to the sun.

Is it making you angry, frustrated, or annoyed that I am refusing to validate your experience or denying it's a reality all together? I have a privilege that you simply do not have. In this scenario do I get to explain what it is like to you, when I really haven't known what you face on a regular basis? I can ignore the dangers and reality you face, because its not my own. Its easy, because its never been a problem for me. Your experiences with the sun have shaped your opinion. Some of you have never even gotten a sun burn, but you know that it could happen, and you don't want it to. Huh. Weird.

Is it so ridiculous that you and your children want to feel just as safe as me and my child do when we're out in the sun? Was it strange how far I was willing to go to deny and invalidate your experience with the sun? Maybe I should take the time to look around, or even listen? Maybe I wouldn't ignore it if it was a danger to me and my family? Maybe instead of getting annoyed at how cautious you are, I could respect that your experiences have made you feel this way.

This is what black people are trying to explain to you. There is a danger. It is real. It is scary. We don't feel safe. We want to feel safe. Listen to us when we are telling you about our experience. There is a reason why the NAACP, and other organizations exist. The reality is different for me, here in this country as a person of color. Stop refusing to acknowledge that these fears, and dangers exist.
