Veep S01 E03 to E08

Added on by C. Maoxian.

The show is funny but it's sort of cruel humor; I can't binge watch it for that reason.  And they swear a lot.  I'm not a prude, but here's the curse count for episode eight:

fuckin', fuckin', cock nugget, lame-ass, finger fuckin', bullshit, piss, ass, fuck, f'd in the b'hole, fucking, fuckin', motherfuckin', get the fuck out, hell, fuck, fuckin', shitfinger, ass, fuck, shit, fucking, fucking, fuckin', fuckin', fuck, fuckin', fucking, fuck, prick, ass, fuckin', fuck off, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, christ, hell, shit, shit, fuckin', fuckin', fucked, fuckin', fucking.

Pretty impressive for a half hour long show, and I like and should use "shitfinger" more often.  I once did a curse count for an episode of the Sopranos, but it was lost on the old WordPress site.

Jack Shafer on losing his job, and the state of things | Capital New York  

Shafer: I thought I was lucky at Slate, where they treated my like a prince. But at Reuters, they treated me like a king, and I had a great run. I don’t fit their game anymore, and I’m completely understanding of that. They’re treating me well on the way out. So there’s no reason for tears. It’s our business, right?

Movies Watched -- The Heat

Added on by C. Maoxian.

Weird one ... a comedy but not a conventional comedy ... Bullock plays a straitlaced FBI agent and the fatty slob is a local Boston cop, they become partners ... the German boy deep within me has always been attracted to Bullock, she has a great bod and is about ten years older than me ... anyway, the movie is two hours long which is at least a half hour too long. There are some funny bits, odd bits, bits that don't really work, and of course the overarching story is dumb ... I'd give it a miss unless you're trapped on a long distance bus in India with nothing else to watch.

I would stay in that crazy industry for the next twenty-five years ... As the sole Westerner in the company, with the best understanding of foreign ways and the most polished English, I applied those advantages to help each company reel in more business. ... Aside from this innocent mischief there were often favors and tasks I had to take care of that weren’t altogether legal and better left unsaid."

SAE - Cornell - Robert T. Dean '49  

"In the late '70s and early '80s, Bob bailed out the house more than one time with financial help. He also developed a plan that would ensure continued success for SAE at Cornell. More importantly, he sold that plan to the CU administration at a time when they had little interest. Out of these negotiations came an unprecedented agreement: a three-way relationship between the active brotherhood, the alumni association, and Cornell that set the framework for a partnership that has endured to this day."

I'm pretty sure the WWF won't be making him a roving ambassador for its cause any time soon."

"Milkshake murderer" talks from Hong Kong prison 11 years after Rob Kissel's death bloom.bg/10x2jyT via @BloombergNews  

"In Hong Kong, Nancy spent her days dabbling in photography, taking tennis lessons and volunteering at the Hong Kong International School and the local United Jewish Congregation. 

“This is my home,” she said when asked if she thinks of ever leaving the prison. “The smile on their faces is a reflection of Jesus working for me. This is my life.”

JESUS? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE UNITED JEWISH CONGREGATION? ... TERRIBLE PIC OF HER THERE

FT launches FirstFT to bring readers must-reads from around the web | About us | FT.com  

27 October 2014: Financial Times readers can now receive the FT’s daily top picks of global news, comment and analysis from around the web by signing up to FirstFT. Concise and engaging, this free email features must-reads from the FT and other sources. 

The FT was one of the first to introduce bespoke email newsletters, with the launch of the Alphaville 6am Cut in 2006 

NEVER HEARD OF IT

FirstFT, the email briefing formerly known as the (early) Lunch Wrap | FT Alphaville  

"This is FirstFT, the FT’s new email briefing written by Amie Tsang in Hong Kong which is replacing the Lunch Wrap and the Cut. All Cut subscribers should have found it in their inboxes for the first time today. If that didn’t happen for any reason do please email firstft@ft.com or alphaville@ft.com."

4 publisher approaches to the daily newsletter - Digiday  

Monetization: Quartz’s newsletters are both sponsored and include native ad placements from brands. Previous advertisers include Comcast, Lincoln and Siemens. “It’s not a huge money-maker, but it certainly pays for itself,” Lichfeld said.

ADS

How it’s monetized: Vox monetizes its newsletter via standard banner placements.

ADS

How it’s monetized: While The Financial Times sells FastFT ad spots, the real business case for the newsletter is to drive more people to subscribe to Financial Times content. Jack said that by building a relationship with non-paying readers, the Financial Times can make a stronger case for why those readers should pay up. “We want people to see that The Financial Times can provide essential information of the day to those decision-makers,” he said.

UP-SELLING 

How it’s monetized: Time uses the newsletter to both run ads and push readers to subscribe to its magazine.
