While we're all rightly focused on issues faced by women, I'd like to highlight this particular documentary on Netflix regarding the issue surrounding Fast Fashion and how it negatively affects women and the environment.
The True Cost is a feature length documentary film that explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet. Available worldwide today!

Seems like somebody could write a tensor-flow application to actually figure out how much winning Obama had? #lazyweb

Not so much that, as that the answer is bloody obvious by eyeball.

What a stand up guy, kicking first peoples off their land because they're blocking his view.

Cardiology (from Greek καρδίᾱ kardiā, "heart" and -λογία -logia, "study") is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists, a specialty of internal medicine. Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery

East Germany or "Nazi Germany"? It's important
Not sure if anybody caught this, but the press conference in response to the leaked oppositional intel regarding unsubstanciated claims of Russian blackmail, followed by Trump's tweet referencing "Nazi Germany" is really freaking me out?

Here's the quote below:
"Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?" Trump wrote in one of several tweets on the leak."

It's a matter of optics and perspectives
The reason it's freaking me out, is based on optics and perspective. Although CNN merely referenced the BuzzFeed article, Trump called them out as horrible and "Fake News.

There are really two main perspectives that I want to point out.

* The first, is that you're being falsely accused, surveilled and smeared publicly, which would probably lead you to reference East Germany's use of the Stasi as an Intelligence Agency post-war to do just that.

* The second is that you're seeing the way you're depicted in press, as if you were Hitler and you're calling out the lugenpresse (Lying Press), but substituting "Fake News" for "Lying Press".

Conclusion
If the first is the case? Then the reference was a based on Trump's tendency to create a sort of word salad of buzzwords and false statements. If the latter is the case? God help us all.

In regards to this reference to "Nazi Germany". I don't want an appology, I want to know exactly why he said this with a full explanation? #potus #peeotus #trump #twitter
President-elect Donald Trump’s “Nazi Germany” tweet went over about as well as you’d expect.

I see your point +Peter Bachman​. Trump's comparison is irresponsible as it removes the meaning from the actual event that damaged humanity immeasurably.

Interesting night. Ran into one of Tim Leary's brethren and had a great chat about the convergence of perception, politics and technology.

The real mind-bender comes in towards the end where Dennett compares Evolution to Universal Computation. Totally epic!

I completely agree! Noise and motion distraction along with feeling completely exposed is one of the main productivity killers I've encountered throughout my career in open office environments.

I thank my lucky stars daily that I am fortunate enough to have cube that dampens and obscures at least some of these distractions. Tables are the worst for me.
