Somebody in the BWI area please come get me so we can hangout. Friends don't let friends sit in a hotel room to do nothing on a Thursday evening!

Wow, I just became the FourSquare Mayor of Busboys (14th St)! One of my greatest accomplishments! Alhumduallah!

Question: how do you work to end hunger in your neighborhood? Across the country? How does your Islamic Center or social network work to end hunger?

Today marks the day of Ashura, which is holy to both Sunni and Shia Muslims. But the latter have a very distinctive way of commemorating it.

This slideshow I made back at +FRONTLINE explains the history and context behind why the day is so holy for Shias, and the myriad of ways in which Shias uniquely observe the entire month of Muharram. It's a deeper and more thoughtful look at a pretty misunderstood set of practices.

20 passing yards in the first half?! This is not acceptable in #CowboysNation. Romo and the passing game has to step up to beat the Aints!

I barely go for the gelato. What gets me in the door is the great espresso drinks. They use one of my favorite bean roasters, Stumptown. Try the Dulce de Leche latte for a real treat! The 14th St location also has a devour.

Coffee, muffins, plenty of seating space, natural light, free WiFi, music at a moderate level, and located next to a metro station and rideshare bike rack... what else could a customer possibly ask for?! The perfect place to stop by to read the morning news and get some work done.
