Drink some more water. When was the last time you filled your cup?

hello! this is a reminder that i'm extra helpful for techie folk in particular who need reminding to step away from their screens and take in some fresh air, but anyone can follow me. be kind to yourself!

Imagine getting impeached twice and not even being able to tweet about it.

It's not just COVID-19.
Nurses are up against the care-for-profit-more-than-people system. The article keeps going back to "lost revenue", "income lost" and the corporate mergers that leave nurses without a voice in their own health; much less the health of their patients.

Former MI Gov. Rick Snyder Finally Faces Criminal Charges For Poisoning An Entire City ift.tt/35EpHyT

So, I'll start by deleting content I've downloaded, removing photos and any personally-identifying information.
Then resist the temptation to leave (useless, time-wasting) comments on anything political. They just get trolled anyway so, why bother?

I use Ecosia for search.
I deleted MeWe (it's been flooded with Twitter and Parler rejects besides the other conspiracy goofs)

I don't need the illusion of followers and all that nonsense. It's just about those little dopamine hits anyway.

Now that I've deleted my Twitter account it's on to Google, starting with YouTube.
Despite having some good channels, YouTube continues to accept money and show ads from snake oil charlatans, gun & gun accessory outfits, right-wing conspiracy institutions, and several more of that ilk.
It's disconcerting to have a peaceful morning with Morgan Long interrupted by a Patriot ad pushing tactical gear.
And they don't do anything about the most egregious examples.
Fear is what sells and they know it.

How refreshing it is to actually see qualified, knowledgeable, intelligent, experienced and caring people appointed to critical leadership positions in this country. What a novel approach to governing! It's been MIA for 4 years.

So glad that David Kessler will be a formal part of this administration. A track record of getting things done in government as well as the character to speak truth to power is exactly what this country needs right now leading the vaccine efforts.

He resigned from boards that were in conflict of interest to his previous FDA appointment. That says a lot. He fought against big tobacco. He has fought against AIDS. He has worked in other administrations. He has fought against monetary mismanagement at University of California and was a whistleblower. He was a chairman of Science in the Public Interest. Now there's a novel idea that needs to be restarted. He is a good choice for many more reasons. #DavidKessler #Biden46

Biden Picks Former F.D.A. Chief to Lead Federal Vaccine Efforts: nyti.ms/3nHhsbj

A moment between meetings, in which I try to let go of everything. Listening to this to try to chill out. (Generally insprirational work!) youtube.com/watch?v=qCF_xkE9SJ

Something good to talk about.

Such a bill should be coupled with the repeal of the Republican tax scam cuts.

Biden expected to include new child benefit in major new stimulus proposal - the plan has been aggressively pushed for years by Democrats:

Yesterday's Virtual Town Hall with Representative Kathy Castor was short, sweet, and chock-full of wonderful activists pushing ahead with our plans for the , President Biden's Clean Energy initiatives, and a few of our own.
