Whether you're managing a political campaign or building a client base, there comes a time when you stop seeing people and start seeing numbers. This doesn't happen suddenly. You shake hands, make calls, and build relationships. And then those relationships disappear into a database of donors or customers as your organization grows. People get brought in to manage those databases, and those databases fragment off into countless little spreadsheets. That's how the people that were once your supporters end up with faceless emails, impersonal calls, and tedious forms that ask for information you already have. And that's how they stop becoming your supporters. That's why services like the one that is providing are more crucial than ever. They a.

Writer was sent to prison for tax fraud, and spent time at New York City's Rikers Island a few months ago. In this Daily Beast article, he describes what life at Rikers will be like for rapist . I suspect the shock of being found guilty of rape in the third degree and sexual assault in the first degree Monday and immediately cuffed and taken into custody by court officers is what led to the heart palpitations that caused the ambulance transporting him to Rikers to be diverted to the prison ward of Bellevue Hospital. Weinstein, who’d avoided any time behind bars until now, should steel himself; there are more shocks to come once he recovers from his post-conviction fit of the vapors. When I left the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) for.

How do you pronounce GIF? Many people use a hard G because GIF stands for Graphics Exchange Format, but others (myself included) say "jif" because it's more mellifluous. The makers of Jif Peanut Butter have taken a stand by issuing a limited edition run of "Hard g" Gif peanut butter jars, which will go on sale on March 1. From :. Jif is partnering with GIPHY, a GIF search engine, to "put a lid on this decade-long debate": Both GIF and the peanut butter are pronounced "Jif.".

Last month, the returned to Earth. This test of a new oven designed for microgravity aboard the International Space Station was not only a delightful experiment but also an important one. After all, this was the first time astronauts cooked raw ingredients in space. And yes, the ISS did smell of fresh-baked cookies. From who consulted on the experiment back on Earth:. Further investigation and analysis of the experiment's results will also continue to answer questions, such as why the cookies took much longer to bake in space and why they weren't "poofy....". "This is a big step in that direction for the future of exploration where we're gonna be off the planet for longer periods of time," Massimino said. He continued, adding that within the

You are what you drive, according to a couple of recent studies. And if you drive a flashy expensive car, there's a high chance it's because you are a self-centered gentleman who is "argumentative, stubborn, disagreeable and unempathetic." In other words, an asshole. Not only that, but for every $1,000 more you spend a car, the chance you'll stop for a pedestrian goes down 3%. According to :. Researchers from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas speculated that the expensive car owners "felt a sense of superiority over other road users" and were less able to empathize with lowly sidewalk-dwellers. They came to this conclusion after asking volunteers to cross a sidewalk hundreds of times, filming and analyzing the responses by car drivers... T.

has an interesting new piece about musical copyright law, and the fact that there are only so many musical sequences using half-step frequencies possible. What happens when they're all used up, and the copyright trolls take everyone to court for any song that even remotely resembles another one, just by virtue of the fact that it relies on the same music theory? Think about Lana Del Rey ripping off of Radiohead, who had ripped off of the Hollies. It's not crazy to write a song that goes from the I to the extra tension of a III before resolving on a IV, which then walks down to a minor iv and returns to the tonic. (Or, in simpler terms, as Motherboard puts it: Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" of Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down"). To get around the pot.
