Quotes of Shirley Chisholm:
"If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair."
"Tremendous amounts of talent are lost to our society just because that talent wears a skirt."
"The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, 'It's a girl'."
"My God, what do we want? What does any human being want? Take away an accident of pigmentation of a thin layer of our outer skin and there is no difference between me and anyone else."
"In the end, anti-black, anti-female, and all forms of discrimination are equivalent to the same thing - anti-humanism."
A new feature in the Spotify music app for iOS (coming soon to Android). Spotify Running detects your running pace between 140 and 160 BPM and autocreates a playlist of music at that tempo.
To get started with Running, pick a playlist and the app will detect your running stride in steps per minute. That number is called the tempo, and Spotify uses it to find songs with the same beats per minute. So if your tempo is 160 steps per minute, it play songs with 160 beats per minute, or close to it. You can change the tempo throughout your running on the Now Playing screen, but the app will not automatically change it for you if you slow down or speed up.
This CNET review covers the features, and some of the current bugs and limitations of the feature: http://www.cnet.com/news/hitting-the-pavement-with-spotify-running-hands-on/
