When gently corrected by one of the astronauts about how other women have spacewalked, Donald Trump uses his middle finger to "fix" his hair. How is this even real life?

This tweet is for people who aren't Jewish and have questions about antisemitism and criticism of Israel. This example of how antisemitism, specifically blood libel, masquerades as critique of Israel is so textbook I think I may use it in future trainings.

Today I ran a PB of 2:27:47 for 6th place in Chicago🇺🇸. Today my husband was a legendary pacer. Today was for all the people in my corner because I wouldn’t be here doing this without you. Today we made progress.

A few thoughts on @EliudKipchoge's performance. It's hard to get across how fast a sub 2hr marathon is. 4:33 mile pace. But what does that mean? An NCAA All-American distance runner would struggle to keep up with him for 6 miles of the 26.2.

The future Donald Trump presidential library and casino in Minsk should definitely feature an 24/7 Trump rally , led by an animatronic Trump replica speaking an Artificial Intelligence generated stream of abuse, self-pity, and threats - always changing, always the same

WeWork didn’t just fail investors. It failed workers too. The idea of cramming more workers into less office space is bad for work! Open offices are sold as collaboration but they force people to find other places to get anything done. My column…
