Let’s not forget. You survived. But you are not a survivor; not defined by what what someone did to you. Took from you. Forced on you.
You survived. You aren’t a survivor. You are a force. Who at one point survived but at all other moments, you simply thrived. #iamgrateful and #iamthankful and most of us too, give a damn. Thanks for the share Purna Patel
I love hops. Chewing on them. Pickling them. Forcing beer back through them. Overpowering my palate with them. I love them.
I love drinking liquids. Coffee and tea. Beer wine and booze. Doesn’t matter. I love it. But the past few months I’m trying hard to find alternatives and have dove into everything from Kin Euphorics to CLEAN Cause. Solid. Great. But they didn’t scratch the itch for a complex, floral, fragrant drink without the sugary backlash or alcoholic hangover.
I found a dream come true a few weeks ago. I’m throwing these back 2-3 a day when I have them and they’re magical. Open “The Really Hoppy One” and I ASSURE you the nose will carry you to your favorite session IPA.
Thanks to the Hoplark HopTea squad. This is a new category and I’m heads over ABV in love. I’m buying a house so I can buy a fridge so I can then buy a second fridge and dedicate it to HopTea.
Some things I just can’t shake. References. Jokes. Song lyrics. Food cravings. All have a trigger.
Almost anytime someone says “number two”, today it was celebrating “we’re number two” on a family text thread, my mind instantly goes here.
Thanks to Angela Wade-Austin.
What a powerful story of how change is possible. Dialogue like this requires an open environment. I am proud of the individual who choose to publicly ask the question, but I’m also proud that he felt there was an environment safe enough for him to be willing to ask the question in the first place.
We reap the outcomes dictated by the environments we create. Let’s actively choose to create an environment where questions are welcome and conversations are welcome. We’ll win more hearts and minds that way #iamgrateful and #iamthankful for what Starbucks has done with this upstanders series. Nice work.
An excellent primer on the hottest topic of the day (outside of that ball game from…this morning): the Mueller indictments.
Katyal covers the dynamics at play between:> Mueller – admirably independent but easily curtailed if not stopped in his tracks> Rosenstein – with generous power to terminate Mueller based on legal latitude> President Trump – with the constitutional power to terminate Mueller or force Rosenstein to do so> The Congress – who, whether in the majority or minority party, must be informed of said termination
He also covers the difference between constitutional authority and practical, sensical reality (though he uses a universally egregious and idiotic extreme example, PT’s constitutional authority to bomb London now, that everyone disagrees with, to make his point which I think, weakens his narrative.)I thank the just amazing Emily Bazelon for catching and sharing this. I recommend following her as
As for Katyal, remember he is the Professor of National Security Law at Georgetown University. Before that he wrote the laws that define the above, and from his bio: “He has served as Acting Solicitor General of the United States, where he argued several major Supreme Court cases involving a variety of issues, such as his successful defense of the constitutionality of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, his victorious defense of former Attorney General John Ashcroft for alleged abuses in the war on terror, his unanimous victory against 8 states who sued the nation’s leading power plants for contributing to global warming, and a variety of other matters.” What saddens me is some of you will see who wrote it and discount this altogether as opposed to learn from and engage with the POV of a person who was instrumental to drafting the framework that set the stage for all those dynamics above.
