And this shares Instapaper likes to Buffer, for sharing on Twitter. I had to hunt for the Instapaper RSS feed.

I'm there at milehighfool, though I'm not a fan of the site. A Mac app called Appetizer has a more Netbot-like interface, but without the built-in Twitter integration.

And this one should send liked Instapaper articles to a notebook in Evernote. For those rare ones I want to keep for reference.
Great recipe to save time and steps when saving articles to Evernote from Instapaper.

Testing this IFTTT Recipe: Google Plus  gets posted to Buffer https://ifttt.com/recipes/103744 Don't worry. I hardly ever use Google Plus. 
When you post on Google+ it gets posted to Buffer, and through Buffer to your choice of social network be it twitter or Facebook. This allows me to use buffer analytics feauture. First of all create your own free G+ feed through this free web app https://gplus-to-rss.appspot.com

NYPD official on tape explains the goal of stop and frisk: "the right people at the right time, the right location.” And more: “The problem was, what, male blacks... I have no problem telling you this, male blacks 14 to 20, 21.” http://nyti.ms/11mNl

Even if black and hispanic men are more likely to commit crimes, I think this sort of policy/practice is problematic, and goes against my value system (and I think many people's).  I believe that how you treat someone can influence their behaviors--and treating someone like a criminal can be more likely to influence them to create crime, by diminishing their trust in police officers, government, or society in general, and by creating a self-fulfilling prophesy.  America is founded on the idea of innocent before proven guilty and requiring certain evidence (and warrants) before searching and detaining people.  I think this is one of the reasons why.  So I think, even if this policy is motivated by intentions of preventing crime, I think it's unacceptable and I think it may actually be increasing crime, not to mention perpetuating institutional racism.

While I'm passing through Google+ today, I might as well plug my wife's full-length collection of poetry, some prizes she has won and other news at her site, which I built for her on Squarespace: http://jane-rosenberg-laforge.com/ Enjoy.

He has also been working on a powerful series on the topic (http://nyti.ms/IgTdXs), the latest installment of which appeared on the front page of The Times this week.

Mr. Drape and Jay Schreiber, a Sports editor at The Times, will take your questions and join you in a discussion on Thursday May 3rd at 3 p.m EDT. If you’re interested in joining, you’ll need to be available for 40 minutes beginning a little before 3 and have and have a video camera-enabled computer. Please let us know that you’re interested by commenting below and telling us a bit about your thoughts on the Derby or horse racing in general. Please also add the New York Times to one of your circles so we can add you to the hangout. We will your confirm your participation by replying below.

Being from Ohio, I used to go to the horse races in Kentucky. I now reside in Miami and absolutely love a day at Gulfstream. I'd love to share the video of our experience to those interested.
