I bought this hoodie mainly for working out and running which is why I like the fact that s its a little loose, giving me that freedom in mobility. Even though I use it to workout, I also wear it just as an everyday hoodie and it also looks great. Love the colors! ... read more

Also, when driving, white people love putting their turn signal on about a half mile before the turn.

Another important thing (if not the most important thing) to look for when choosing fabric for your clothing projects is the weight . Fabric weight means how thick/heavy a fabric is, and the weight you choose depends on what you are making and the feel you want for your garment. It's a personal choice, but it also has to be practical. The different weights can be referred to as top-weight, bottom-weight, very light, light, medium and heavy.

Exactly. As an American living in the UK for the sixth straight year, I was thinking exactly this, Tessa!

Rob Yes. But the meaning of clothes goes far deeper than what you should or shouldn't wear in the workplace, Will. It can really influence what people think of us. Now, rightly or wrongly, they can make snap judgements - or quick decisions - about us.

I love this blog clander . I still want to meet you. I am flying to LAX on March 30 for a four nights of eating well and museums with my daughter and her film maker bf, then dash to Mammoth to ski a couple days than return to Bangor Maine airport which is 150 miles south of our island.

This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!

Ageing, he thought, comes about because this developmental programme, this constant change, never turns off. From birth until puberty, change is crucial: we need it to grow and mature. After we ve matured, however, our adult bodies don t need change, but rather maintenance. If you ve built the perfect house, you would want to stop adding bricks at a certain point, Walker says. When you ve built a perfect body, you d want to stop screwing around with it. But that s not how evolution works. Because natural selection cannot influence traits that show up after we have passed on our genes, we never evolved a stop switch for development, Walker says. So we keep adding bricks to the house. At first this doesn t cause much damage a sagging roof here, a broken window there. But eventually the foundation can t sustain the additions, and the house topples. This, Walker says, is ageing.

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.  

That side twisty ponytail definitely needs a tutorial to go with it are you listening, Namrata Soni ?

You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.

What about non-white people who wear technical clothing eh? I m 1/2 yellow and 1/2 white and I wear a ridiculous amount of technical clothing. Although I always want to go camping, I m not so stupid as to think my buddy s going to call an impromptu session of hiking and paddling. I for one wear technical clothing because I m a paranoid bastard. When those zombies come, you want to be hunkered down in a makeshift shanty dressed in cotton, that retains water and chills you when the temperature drops? I think I ll stick with my technical clothing. I may look like a douche, but damn yo, how many hipsters look like douches and are just gonna be eaten by zombies because they can t run in their drainpipe jeans? Sheeit yo, it ain t just white people wearing clothing that works, that in itself is degrading to people of other shades. What, because I m 1/2 Chinese I can t be (paranoia-fuelled) practical? C mon!!

In a StoryCorps animation, Patrick Haggerty remembers the remarkable advice he got from his dairy farmer dad.  

If you know how to sew you can make your own clothes and do clothing alterations. With the availability of inexpensive clothes and the cost of fabric, you may not save a lot of money by sewing trousers, for example. The big advantage to sewing your own clothes is that you can let your creativity go wild, creating your own styles and fabric combinations. A learn-to-sew DVD can teach you how to make clothing that fits great and shows your individuality.dresses for less

Advice from an old, crusty editor who doesn’t smoke cigars (anymore)

Aimed at people newish newish to the business and the people who have to manage them, from someone who’s been an online news manager for 16 years and now runs Reuters.com.

Key insights include: You’re smarter than everyone else in the newsroom. But that’s your deepest secret. Don’t tell anyone. 

Find the grizzled old hand who can teach you more with one withering glance than all your professors in J-School.

Never mention any of your professors in J-School.

Be bored and then do something about it. 

Let’s talk about something deeply personal for a minute. Are you ok? I mean seriously, are you really ok? Depression, anxiety - they’re incredibly common in the newsroom. Here’s some of what you need to consider in dealing with it in yourself and others.

Is it a raccoon-cat or a cat-raccoon? And what to do about it

John Oliver outlined the problem without proposing any solutions.  Here are six ideas.

Why we need solutions journalism

If we think of the media as a feedback mechanism for society then — like any feedback mechanism — it can encourage or inhibit all sorts of things. Depending on what gets highlighted and what gets overlooked — and how stories are framed — the media can accelerate social progress or do just the opposite. The question is: What kind of feedback is likely to enhance or diminish society’s capacity to solve problems?

One of the core assumptions in journalism is that the press helps society to self-correct largely by acting as a watchdog. Much of the time, reporters spotlight problems – i.e., provide negative feedback – with the goal of spurring reforms. We’re increasingly realizing that is incomplete. We need to promote health, not just attack disease. To do that for society, it’s not enough to know what’s broken; people need to know how problems could be, or are being, fixed.

Media: Blended

Students today are producing newscasts, not for television, but the web. These newscasts take snatches of inspiration from the evening news of old, shows from today such as Vice, video podcasts, and comedy news shows and blend them into something new, original and far more targeted to their audiences. On the University of Nevada, Reno campus, students are producing Wolf Pack What, a You Tube program with no anchor desks, where news packages are just as likely to introduce absurdist elements as they are to be straightforward. This is reflective of the mindset of the next generation of journalism professionals, who draw from the best media of today and remix it into what will become the media of tomorrow. As traditional news fades, the latest generation of journalists is ripping up the rule book in this new digital age, making news not just informative, but funny and personal.

Leave no “@Mention” behind

Relationships are great, but one-sided relationships suck - even on social media. In fact, especially on social media. Many of us journalists never respond to or acknowledge his/her readers on social media when they reach out. Big mistake. Everyone talks about engagement, but how many of us actually engage? Give me five minutes to convince you why no “@mention” should go unnoticed.

Our workflow is generally horrible

Henry Ford did not build a better car. In fact, the Model T came with tools for when it broke. He built a better way to make a car. 

We need to do that with our industry.

We need to engineer tools that make publishing every type of content simple. We need to devise workflows that are straightforward, linear and logical. (gasp!) We also need processes that put our digital platforms, not our legacy products, first.

This is not complicated. In fact, what’s needed is simplification. Some suggestions. And some commiserations for what all we have endured.

Journalism is a strategy, not an industry

Amid all our enthusiasm about defending and improving information gathering and independent reporting in the modern web and data-backed era, we have misunderstood the implications of the great unbundling of great news media organizations. 

Journalism is a strategy to make communities better that needs to be spread, not a cohesive industry that needs protecting. The better we understand this, the easier it is to communicate why organizations with journalism DNA have more reason to share and support each other than compete. 

I’m Christopher Wink (Hi!), the cofounder of 25-person community news publisher Technically Media, host of the annual Barcamp News Innovation and the longtime organizer of ONA Local’s Philadelphia chapter. I’d love five minutes to share with you why I think this is such an important concept for our work.

From the Frontlines of Libya to the Trenches of Tech

In 30 years of broadcast reporting for ABC, CBS and CBC TV News the biggest pain in my daily life has been transcription. Like every other reporter I’ve simply accepted that we have to do it ourselves - or if we are lucky someone will do it for us. What I never imagined was that I would join a brilliant team of developers to revolutionize the routine of journalists around the world. I am totally unqualified to be a CEO and inventor, but having lived the pain and the problem of transcription I have a pretty good idea of what an automated solution needs to look like. It’s been a two-year odyssey and together we’ve done it. Our software is being used by NPR, the Washington Post, the BBC and others. We use artificial intelligence to create incredibly accurate transcripts in minutes that you can search, verify and share. I’d never have believed that Career 2.0 would find me in this role, I loved reporting. But creating Trint (transcription+interview) has been a huge challenge and real thrill. And it’s just beginning. We opened to the world in early September. There is a life after reporting!
