Android, Cars, and Crime: Prya Murad @defendermurad Learned today that cops are just placing bikes that don't belong to anyone on the street and waiting to see who takes them and then arresting them. Is this literally the extent of "crime fighting" our tax dollars can pull off? Give me a break. 6:33 PM Oct 18, 2019 Twitter for iPhone 5.7K Likes 1.4K Retweets Emily Galvin-Almanza @GalvinAlmanza I remember NYPD hanging around outside methadone clinics on Saturdays, when people would get 2 doses to cover Sunday too. Undercovers would pretend to be in withdrawal & beg for someone's extra dose. If someone was kind enough to give it to them, they got arrested. For a felony. Scott Hechinger @Scott Hech Oct 19 "Police-created crime." My first legal internship was in NOLA for the Orleans Public Defenders. Witnessed tons of injustice Post-Katrina. Cops would be put food out in random cars w/ windows rolled down. People who were starving would reach in, grab food & get arrested for it. twitter.com/defendermurad/... 5:02 AM Oct 20, 2019 Twitter for Android 10.2K Likes 4K Retweets Scott Hechinger @ScottHech "Police-created crime."

Advice, Target, and Tumblr: Unpaid internship opportunities are actually useful ply to them. and you should ap You can use them to practice your interview skills. If you get an offer just tell them that you can't work for them because you got accepted for a paid internship. Not only do you get back at exploitive companies by wasting their time, but you will also be able to practice what you're going to say when interviewing at a real company lemonade-cat: ellewritesfiction: I was about to be M A D but this is truly good advice. An important addendum to this!!!Unpaid internships are ONLY LEGAL if:-The work that you are doing benefits YOU and not the company (ex: you being told to fetch coffees for the managers benefits THEM, and does not benefit your education. this is work that would LEGALLY need to be paid.)-There has to be a CLEAR and UNDERSTOOD agreement that the internship is unpaid. If you were led to be expected it was a paid internship and they suddenly were liek “what? no it was unapid”, then the law is on your side to be paid because they didn’t make the agreement clear enough.-The work you are doing must COMPLEMENT the work of paid employees there, NOT replace it.  -The work you do must be RELEVANT to your topic of education. (Again , going back to the coffee example; the chances that fetching some one coffee is relevant to your education is not likely. this is not allowed.)Always remember these things when taking an unpaid internship; you actually DO have legal rights in this regard! Unpaid Internship are supposed to benefit YOU, not the employer :)

College, Dude, and Future: Every graduating senior is scared, to some degree, of the future, but this was on a different level. When my class left our liberal arts experience, we scattered to temporary gigs: I worked at a dude ranch; another friend nannied for the summer; one got a job on a farm in New Zealand; others became raft guides and transitioned to ski instructors. We didn't think our first job was important; it was just a job and would eventually, meanderingly lead to The Job. But these students were convinced that their first job out of college would not only determine their career trajectory, but also their intrinsic value for the rest of their lives. I told one student, whose dozens of internship and fellowship applications yielded no results, that she should move somewhere fun, get any job, and figure out what interests her and what kind of work she doesn't want to do - a suggestion that prompted wailing. "But what'll I tell my parents?" she said. "I want a cool job I'm passionate about!" Those expectations encapsulate the millennial rearing project, in which students internalize the need to find employment that reflects well on their parents (steady, decently paying, recognizable as a "good job") that's also impressive to their peers (at a "cool" company) and fulfills what they've been told has been the end goal of all of this childhood optimization: doing work that you're passionate about. Whether that job is as a professional sports player, a Patagonia social media manager, a programmer at a startup, or a partner at a law firm seems to matter less than checking all of those boxes. What's worse, the feeling of accomplishment that follows an exhausting task passing the final! Finishing the massive work project! - never comes. "The exhaustion experienced in burnout combines an intense yearning for this state of completion with the tormenting sense that it cannot be attained that there is always some demand or anxiety or distraction which can't be silenced," Josh Cohen, a psychoanalyst specializing in burnout, writes.

4chan, Bad, and Friends: Following @bart_smith There's no more 2018 a story thana furry getting an internship at NASA and then immediately losing it after telling Homer Hickam to suck their dick and balls Naomi H @NaomiH_official -22h EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP I GOT ACCEPTED FOR A NASA INTERNSHIP 158 t129 3 447 Homer Hickam @HomerHickam 3h Language 3 Naomi H @NaomiH_official 2h Suck my dick and balls I'm working at NASA С 65 Homer Hickam @HomerHickam 2h And I am on the National Space Council that oversees NASA. 28 2:57 PM - 21 Aug 2018 alexxdz: thespectacularspider-girl: ranma-official: fireandlifeincarnate: adulthoodisokay: great-tweets: twitter is incredible oh man: she didn’t lose her internship because “her friends” used a hashtag, she lost it because a bunch of 4chan fuckers found out she’s trans and decided to doxx her and harass her employer about the ~image~ she was sending. like this wasn’t her public face account, she wasn’t spouting racist garbage, she mistook someone in her mentions for one of the randos she gets regularly harassed by (because, yknow, if someone tweets “language” at you on twitter, 99.9% of the time they’re not actually concerned for you) and transphobes used the opportunity to fuck up her life. it’s great that hickam is behind her on this but a lot of people are sharing this and laughing at how hilarious it is that “a furry got fired for swearing”, which is the smokescreen being used to cover how this was doxxing a trans woman to ruin her potential career This is what her friends have been sending him. Then they invented fictional Nazis to blame even though Hickam himself explicitly stated that it’s her friends, who harassed him, who got her fired by using the NASA hashtag. You are a liar, and a bad one at that. Yup. The furries harassed him to the point where he deleted his own twitter, I believe. tell the boss of your boss to suck your dickhe is nice enough to let it goshit head “friends” keep telling him to die ON THE NASA HASHTAG”i- it was the 4chan nazi trolls!”
