I haven’t been as posty as I’d like lately. As some of you know, I have recently gone back to school. That means I have a lot of reading, and a bit of getting used to classmates who occasionally make me feel like this:
I remind myself that I am old enough to be mommies to some of them. So without further ago, shorties.
Social Media: It’s embarrassing that social media is now little more than yet another way to send me ads.
Social Security: There’s only a crisis if you want there to be one.
Too much Social, too little work: Up to 80% of a worker’s internet time might be spend “cyberloafing.” It’s easier to hide that you’re doing nothing at the computer than at the water cooler.
Bad Association: Turns out that Countrywide kept doing “business as usual” after B of A took over. I hope this surprises none of you.
Social Promotions for Educational Reforms?: I still like Kevin Drum.
Social Studies: The Avengers and The Breakfast Club.
Fitting in to Society: On immigration reform.
Vegas: Visitors are at a record high despite reduced convention traffic.
Reducing the deficit without slashing our own throats: From the progressives. But it won’t happen because the conservatives really want to make the majority of us into modern serfs by slashing the safety net instead.
Speaking of modern serfs: A third of student loans are subprime. They can’t be discharged through bankruptcy. They are creating a generation that may always be in debt.
Obesity is bad for you: even if you are the Governor.
On Republicans: From a Republican woman (endangered species, I know).
Gee, you don’t say!: Global climate change might adversely effect agriculture. Who knew?!?
