‘I Don’t Really Want to Work for Facebook.’ So Say Some Computer Science Students. - The New York Times
“Employees are wising up to the fact that you can have a mission statement on your website, but when you’re looking at how the company creates new products or makes decisions, the correlation between the two is not so tightly aligned,” said David Chie, the head of Palo Alto Staffing, a tech job placement service in Silicon Valley. “Everyone’s having this conversation.”

Ian Mathews's answer to What is the saddest truth about smart people? - Quora
Intelligence helped, but resilience was more important.

You had to be comfortable failing over and over, hearing no on a regular basis and making the next phone call anyway. Selling is humbling and you have to check your ego at the door.

But those who master the skill tend to work their way up in a company much faster than someone in a technical role. Without customers, a company has nothing so high value is placed on someone who knows how to find and grow sales.

...The most successful people I know weren’t necessarily the best students. A few spent more time on academic probation than the Dean’s List. They learned that failure wasn’t permanent and could be overcome with hard work.

When nothing comes easy growing up, you embrace the grind in life and business. You expect adversity and plan for it.

When everything comes easy, you fear adversity and avoid situations that could compromise your winning record.

But the copy needs a nudge in the direction of DR. Before I get into the specifics, what I'm missing most is REAL benefits. Benefits your target market can hear, taste, feel, sense, etc.


This is a great start!

However, you're missing the most important piece...

And I would argue -- the ONLY piece that matters...

Why is she doing all this? Why is she a life coach? What's her story behind that?

...why does she want to transform her self relationship from "hard" to "compassionate?"

...and WHY does she want to help others with this knowledge?

Because once you speak to THAT, then you can nail your copy (and then Finn's suggestions will fall into place almost automatically).

Five Reasons Why People Code-Switch : Code Switch : NPR
We lived in Ireland some years ago and noticed there were often two prices for goods and services — reasonable prices for the locals and much more expensive costs for others (Americans). It was not easy, but I practiced my Irish accent until we qualified for 'local pricing'. Still, they would often ask me where I was from, as my accent was anything but flawless. But I'd come up with the name of some obscure town hundreds of miles away, which explained my 'odd' Irish accent and usually satisfied them. Once, to my, "Ack, I'm from dahn twards Clara Bog," the guy responded in Gaelic.

I had no idea what he was saying. I continued to smile, laugh, and nod at what I hoped were appropriate times as he excitedly talked on and on. Finally, another English speaking customer entered the shop and he flipped back to English then whispered to me, "We need to be careful here (in Northern Ireland) about speaking Irish." "Oh, aye," I replied.

I pulled my wallet out to pay for my my flowers and he held up his hands, "No, me lass, keep yer money. 'twas a pleasure speakin' to ya."

How a Woman Becomes a Lake
In the past month, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court; a United Nations climate report predicted widespread environmental disaster by 2040; the Trump Administration sought to alter civil-rights law in a way that would prevent the legal recognition of trans and intersex people; many conservatives became consumed with racist paranoia over a caravan of desperate people marching north in legal pursuit of asylum; eleven devout Jews were murdered in their synagogue; and the President declared his hope to end birthright citizenship by executive order. These days of fear and sadness show no sign of abating. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt lake-like—cool and still.

Caitlin Moran asked men on Twitter about the downsides of being a man.
We simply don't have anyone to talk to. Going to a psychiatrist is expensive and looked down on socially, friends don't take you seriously unless there's something REALLY wrong, and it's hard to trust people with sensitive subjects. It's probably why many people drink.

I literally only began learning in the last 2-3 years how to share my emotions with my wife; and how to hear her problems without feeling pressure to try and 'solve' them away. I never knew that just saying it and hearing it was good enough. This might be an overshare, sorry.

The Story Behind Bucky’s Groundbreaking Comic-Book Reinvention As the Winter Soldier
The story in which Bucky would come back would be called “The Winter Soldier,” a title that alludes to the fraught relationship the U.S. has with its veterans. In 1776, Thomas Paine published the first installment in a series of pamphlets called The American Crisis. In it, he decried the “summer soldier” who “will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country.” Two centuries later, Vietnam Veterans Against the War referenced Paine when they staged a 1971 event called the Winter Soldier Investigation, during which they drew attention to the immorality of America’s actions in Southeast Asia. A young John Kerry spoke there, giving an incendiary testimony about what America was doing to its drafted men. “The country doesn’t know it yet, but it has created a monster,” he said. “A monster in the form of millions of men who have been taught to deal and to trade in violence … men who have returned with a sense of anger and a sense of betrayal which no one has yet grasped.”

So You Want to Open a Small Press Bookstore/Artist-Run Space? A Cautionary Tale by Noel Black | Poetry Foundation
I’d like to say that this account is unique to Mountain Fold, but in the nearly two years since we closed, I’ve spoken to at least half a dozen other poets and artists who’ve had similar experiences with poet- and artist-run spaces. So, for all you out there who can’t help yourselves (you know who you are), here are some small points of advice:

Get really good insurance.

Consider being a for-profit. It doesn’t mean you’ll make any, but you can be sure who the buck (you won’t have) stops with at all times.

Consider converting your garage into a reading/art space (and get really REALLY good insurance).

If you’re going to be a non-profit collective, consider the way acequias work. Acequias are tried-and-true Spanish-style irrigation ditches that farmers in Southern Colorado have been using for hundreds of years and still use to water their land. Everyone has to take a turn being the mayordomo/Executive Director. If you screw someone else in the collective over, you can be sure they’ll return the favor when it’s their turn to be in charge. Behave accordingly. Set one-year terms. Anyone who isn’t willing to be in charge for at least a year and do all the insanely boring crap you have to do gets zero say in any creative decisions. And get really good insurance.

If you’re going to have a public space, try to find a cheap place you can buy and own. Nothing like landlords to vacuum up your already limited resources. Sure, property is theft, but being a tenant leaves you constantly vulnerable.

I’d never say don’t do business/non-profit with friends, but seriously consider the pitfalls.

Remember the back yard, and good luck.

Sorry to Bother You, black Americans and the power and peril of code-switching | AT McWilliams | Opinion | The Guardian
Soon after the main character, Cassius Green, begins a new job as a telemarketer – and fails to make a single sale – a black co-worker offers a radical suggestion: “Let me give you a tip. You wanna make some money here? Use your white voice.” Cassius’s new white voice quickly becomes his greatest asset.

Sorry to Bother You then uses Cassius’s surreal code-switching to illustrate the tragedy of assimilation, but the reality of the linguistic act is far more complex. And as a tool for social mobility – or in the case of black people, a tool for survival – it must be examined for both its power and potential peril.

Prospect Analysis: Rural America | Copy Chief
You need to see how people truly feel in the moment you ask them the question, "how did that make you feel?"

You absolutely MUST talk to your prospect.

When you do, you realize she's not a prospect anymore... she's not a "market," either...

She's a real person.

So love her, like a real person.


When I do research, I need some advance clarity before I start climbing mountains.
For me, there's two halves to research (for starters) and I identify them independently of each other:
1. Who you want to sell to and why
2. What you want to sell and why.

...The degree of interest decides the answer.
Some people read Batman comics.
Some people dress up like Batman and go to Comic-Con.

...So what is sold is secondary to why it's sold - the highest ranked
objective of making the sale(to you):
Profit, relationship, increasing market share, etc.
Those two answers can decide the how you sell something.
The how may have you revisit the who and the what.

For example, you may decide as CVS Pharmacy that selling cold medicine is great.
But you don't want to "just" sell cold medicine and fill prescriptions.

You want to be the insurance company the pharmacy calls to approve the prescriptions as well.

In that case, you go and buy a health insurance company.

But wait a minute.
When you change what you sell,
That changes who you are to who you sell to.
And that might call for another round of changing who you sell to again.
In the CVS example, now you're not just a pharmacy any more.
So you change your name to CVS Health.
Now your name is different. (Notice we're currently not talking about the avatar?)
CVS Health is "helping people get better."
That means you need to get rid of some unhealthy things you sell.
and you stop selling cigarettes
which was probably a high profit item for them.

So hopefully that real world example shows why
just naming a group of people and connecting it
with a broad market doesn't really nail things down.

Late in life I've realized that with History, I have no need for fiction anymore. I'd love to hear what you consider the most fascinating period of history and why? : history
The end of the Roman Republic is an amazing historical period. Lucius Cornelius Sulla marching an army on Rome and massacring his political enemies. The rise of Julius Caesar, Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, and Marcus Licinius Crassus in the first triumvirate. The political drama between the optimates and the populists such as the killing of the Tribune's gaius gracchus and his brother Tiberius. The Cataline conspiracy. Huge territorial changes and the sheer corruption shown by goverers of these new provinces and all culmulating in a huge cvil war this period has it all!

I think a big reason for enjoying this period is it's just so well documented by people alive at or near the time like Cicero, Livy and Plutarch as well as many modern books, games and tv shows covering the events.

I live in Egypt. Should I learn MSA or Egyptian Arabic? - Quora
I actually found that knowing MSA made me a bit embarrassed to speak in Egyptian Arabic at first, so if I did it again and needed to communicate quickly I would start with Egyptian Arabic. Since then when talking with non-Egyptian Arabic speakers I have never once used MSA. To me, it just feels wrong to have an informal chat in MSA, like reciting phrases from Shakespeare when buying a pint of milk.

Standard Arabic or Local Dialect - Which Should You Learn First? - Fluent in 3 months - Language Hacking and Travel Tips
Let me say that again because it bears repeating: Most people in Arabic speaking countries do NOT speak Modern Standard Arabic. They ONLY speak their dialect.

...Generally speaking, these European style dialects are split offs that occurred in the last 500 years or less (and sometimes they incorporate features of a second language).

Modern Standard Arabic though, despite the name, is based entirely on Arabic from the Koran written in the 7th century.


With a spoken focus, you can get into reading later, and that's more suited to an MSA focused approach anyway, because dialect is pretty much never written in script (I'm told that subtitles for children's TV shows use it for instance).

Finally, when you are a confident speaker of the dialect, then start working on MSA. You should already know how to read out words, but get lots of practice to read faster, and learn alternative versions of words you already know that are likely to come up in texts.

By not learning them in parallel, but in a written-only context, you are less likely to mix things up, and will use the correct word when writing and the correct one when speaking dialect.

[Image] See what happens : GetMotivated
This really is an important thing to realize, acknowledge, and understand. Criticisms need to accompany active change. You can't do that if you continuously hold yourself up to what you the way others appear to you. Note appear. That's not how they truly are. That's how you perceive them, and that creates your own personally colored lenses. That coloring comes from highly subjective perceptions, which are exaggerated due to the constant inner dialogue that grates on and wears down your own self-esteem. The more you do that, the greater others look and the crappier you look.

So, where this started was with the comment that criticism needs to accompany active change. Use criticisms to hone yours skills and abilities to reflect things you value. This is a vital part of the whole thing. The first thing you need to know is who you are aiming to be. Most people really don't have a good perception of that. They just look around and measure themselves against images seen through those colored lenses but they never consider who they are.

Erynn Brook on Twitter: "I want to tell you a story about how my mum taught me that I’m allowed to leave an uncomfortable situation."
It’s radical to have boundaries. And to exercise them. Three things I think were really really important in what she did:

1. She always explicitly said “you can leave if you want to.”
2. She never questioned why, or whether I was overreacting.
3. She showed up.

Internet harassment (paired with your long and searchable histories of your location, place of employment, casual drug use, ongoing hatred of women and minorities, peppered with the occasional self-pitying post looking for friendship or empathy) kind of... pales in comparison. I deal with the fallout of my decisions every day, and I am still here. Hopefully you will be able to say the same.

Ex Machina Has a Serious Fembot Problem | WIRED
Ava demonstrates her consciousness/intelligence in a form and with a sensuality that David in Prometheus never had to. *Short Circuit'*s Number 5/Johnny Five was cute, but he never had to employ it for survival the way Pris did in Blade Runner. Even AIs with no physical form at all seem to get sexualized based simply on their voices. It's not like HAL 9000 ever sparked up a relationship with Dave in 2001: A Space Odyssey the way Samantha did in Her. "Her is playing on the fact that the audience knows what [Scarlett Johansson] looks like," Richardson says. "No one really needs to know who the voice of HAL was, because HAL was an intelligent machine. We need to know about the disembodied voices of our AI avatars if they're female so that males can buy into the ideas of the sexualized person behind the representation."

...This ongoing discourse is the reason thing like the Bechdel Test, which started out just as a comic trip referencing Alien, struck a nerve and stuck around. The thrust of Mulvey's argument is that the bulk of films are seen from a male perspective—that a woman in a film is often "tied to her place as bearer of meaning, not maker of meaning."
