Big props to El Padrino, @nextgenradio, who has brought in LITERALLY hundreds of diverse voices into public media/journalism. This man is a legend and I am lucky to call him a friend. (Reply with your #DougStories) https://t.co/ouqmLCDg2X
The day I got to Seattle in 2018 for an early-career @nextgenradio program, Doug sat me down with a coffee and introduced me to @michellebetz, where we talked travel, journalism and more. I would rather not know where I'd be today without the both of them #DougStories https://t.co/BWmzvFZAjs
Currently in a heated debate about top three worst places in NYC. My answers are Columbus Circle Whole Foods, Union Pool & Grand Army Plaza (Brooklyn). I am countered with the 86th st. 4/5/6 station, the Port Authority Bus Terminal & the NY Aquarium.
1) Did everyone just forget about the L train? (though, to its credit, construction ended sometime during the pandemic). 2) 14th St-Union Square during rush hour, worse during the summer 3) Any time and place there is a parade, with the exception of Coney Island's Mermaid Parade https://t.co/5cbvEorHpR
This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester. https://t.co/8DteVzexLB https://t.co/OfkWRKFZZE
If you're an international student on a F-1 or M-1 visa in the U.S. who is worried about the latest ICE guidance get in touch with me for a @TIME story. (The new rules may force students on these visas to leave the country if their school is going online-only this fall.) https://t.co/6rHWBqi5XI
All this talk of tuition costs makes me feel especially grateful I had access @EPCCNews and @UTEP. For context: former UTEP Pres. Diana Natalicio's interview about the educational needs of the borderland, and the gap these schools have helped to fill https://t.co/hjpidg2MMV
If you’re a Black or brown woman in the US + a student hoping to pursue journalism, tell me about your goals (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’ll pay for 5 annual memberships for professional journo orgs, i.e. NABJ, NAHJ, AAJA, IRE, ONA. There should be more of us in journalism.
According to @GRM_Global, a case of COVID-19 has been diagnosed at a tent encampment for asylum-seekers in Matamoros. For context, back in May we detailed the efforts taken to try to keep the virus out, something doctors say could "devastate" the camp. https://t.co/Bx3CIov9pp
If you're a student whose plans have been disrupted by visa suspensions — including the H1-B — I would love to talk to you for a @TIME story. (Also open to connecting with non-students.) If you're an immigration attorney concerned about your clients, I want to hear from you too.
Yo White ppl really be like, "We don't want to put hiring POC at the forefront of our agenda because we don't want to tokenize them" but hiring poc needs to be a PRIORITY. Also it won't be tokenizing if you're genuinely wanting to invest in them and include their perspectives???
Diego, a giant tortoise whose unstoppable libido was credited with saving his species, has finally retired to an uninhabited island off the coast of Ecuador after decades of service in a breeding program. https://t.co/ygijFV3AZ0
Some good news https://t.co/rfqUdOfwLe
Colonial newspapers contributed to the perpetuation of slavery. Advertised 250 years ago today: "Public Auction...Two very fine NEGRO BOYS, the one about 15, the other 11 Years of Age. On WEDNESDAY, Some Brimstone, Alspice" (New-York Gazette & Weekly Mercury 6/11/1770) https://t.co/rzaeqyKwLx
I follow this account to remind myself from whence we came…"we" as a nation and "we" as a profession, which printed ads of enslaved human beings for sale. https://t.co/tsosmyIebC
Perhaps I have something of use to add to this conversation of newsroom diversity. I’m a Latino and grew up in an area where 10% of the students are college or career ready at HS grad, per a 2014 study. Today, I’m an editor at @WSJ and the DJ Newswires. Mama’s proud, ok?
