As a hater of adverbs, I can't help pointing out that the word "actually" was a tell here.
Very few of these cases were reported, so this was a very faint drumbeat. In 1858-60, there were only 8 successful prosecutions for sodomy at the Old Bailey. We can add 3 more if we include bestiality. Figures here: https://t.co/yQwYxPKiXJ
Next week’s national spelling bee is the biggest ever—because more than half the spellers paid to get their spot instead of having to win their way there. https://t.co/jqCZXwX9wW via @WSJ
I'm not sure, but I think this is M-E-R-E-T-R-I-C-I-O-U-S.
Everyone fails. Anyone you see succeeding is only succeeding at the things you’re paying attention to—I guarantee they are also failing at lots of other things. The people I respect most are those who fail well. I respect them even more than those who succeed.
TV Nudge Experiment: I am supposed to do a nudge at a street festival to reduce littering. The “experiment” will be shown on national TV. We have 4 hours to film. Target group 20-30 year olds. Any ideas?? #nudging
Yes. Has been the capstone of this class for 20+ years. So much for the idea that if you raise the stakes mistakes vanish.
One of the case studies in my class on psychology of decision making is @JonKrakauer1's Into Thin Air. 29K+ feet + weather + fatigue + an extraordinary 0/1 goals does not make for good decision making. And it's getting worse. @R_Thaler https://t.co/rsHyc7NGh5
Here's a word we need in 2019: Lapidation. An old word for stoning someone to death. @CassSunstein proposes we use it for virtual stonings -- outrage mobs that ruin reputations and lives, with little regard for truth or proportion.
Fox News is essentially a Lapidation Machine - but there is plenty of lapidating on the left. (Senator Al Franken was a victim of lapidation.)
Trump predicts 'fast' trade deal with China but provides no evidence @CNBC Good luck https://t.co/SXQAE3A5q0
@rinsana @jimcramer Now if I would have said cancelled or suspended for an extended period of time, there is an argument to be had.
@jimcramer I guess they don’t understand the concept of a stock being halted. Which, by the way is not what I suggested. I’ll let you watch the video to see what I actually said.
@AlexTeha @YahooFinance @serwer @jimcramer Nah. If the stock is halted no one can come in and buy it. It’s halted. And if you watch the interview ,you can see what I actually said
@jimcramer What CEO would send an email like that to their employees? It is a shameless pump that IMHO was intended to stop the stocks free fall and avoid a personal margin call. He bought himself a couple weeks to try and change history. The bonds tell the real story.
