Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive churches, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.
i’m sorry that’s just the best sentence i’ve ever read
“I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.”—Kuba Wojewodzki (via gezel)
“Instead of using its position to line the pockets of water companies, the World Bank should support what is most needed: affordable and clean – and public – water for all.”—Opinion: World Bank wants water privatized, despite risks: Efforts endanger access to and pricing of life’s most precious resource
“ugh i just chewed a student out in class, and i think i went overboard. we were talking about title IX, and this bro-dude has his phone just way out in the open. and so i told him to put his phone away and then proceeded to tell the class that if they needed any empirical evidence of the continuation of dismissive and misogynistic attitudes towards women’s sport then look no further than their classmates”
As an RN who has (in the past) been a full-time employee at 36h a week split into three 12h shifts, I can attest to a shorter work week having an enormous positive effect on one’s lifestyle. I’d even work three 7PM-7AM shifts a week over five 8h day ones. The absolute worst worktime in my life was working five 8h shifts from 3P-11P with alternate weekends. THat shit could net you four-on/one off/four on if you didn’t plan carefully.
I remember that at my first nursing job the hot unit to transfer to was dialysis. Why? Because people loooove kidney function? No. Because they worked four ten hour shifts, weekdays only, with a 45 minute guaranteed lunch plus two separate guaranteed 15min breaks. It was essentialy RN heaven.
I really do think the five-day 40h model should die a quick death. It’ll result in a happier and possibly more dedicated workforce.
I saw this today, but I’m not sure what to think about it. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton were great, but there’s just something missing. Like most Jim Jarmusch movies, it lasted too long and nothing really happened. The music was great, so that’s something.
“Back when George W. Bush was president, liberals were regularly accused of being disloyal or anti-American if they disagreed with the policies the administration was undertaking. As Bush himself said, you were either with us or with the terrorists, and as far as many of his supporters were concerned, “us” meant the Bush administration and everything they wanted to do, including invading Iraq. You may have noticed that now that there’s a Democrat in the White House, conservatives no longer find disagreeing with the government’s policies to be anti-American; in fact, the truest patriotism is now supposedly found among those whose hatred of the president, and the government more generally, burns white-hot in the core of their souls.”—Uncivil Disobedience and the Opposite of Patriotism (via smdxn)
