Facebook, Twitter Turn to Right-Leaning Groups to Help Referee Political Speech

Advisers on touchy issues include Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council, Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform and, on the left, the Southern Poverty Law Center. Their involvement behind the scenes, designed to tamp down a furor over social media’s policing of content, has instead kicked up a new range of disputes.

FCD Founder Simon Collins Plans to Take Concept to China With Trends Media Group’s Su Mang

ROAD SHOW: With this year’s installment of Fashion Culture Design two weeks away, founder Simon Collins is planning to take the concept to Beijing in late October or early November.
Partnering with Su Mang, president and chief executive officer of Trends Media Group, Collins said, “The way I’m looking at it is a cross between the Met Gala and TED. We’ll be bringing in a huge amount of the leading voices and faces in Chinese fashion and culture, and taking a great number of people over from the West to be part of our conversation. The way we run our conversations is very much as a think tank so it’s going to be a new experience.”
Still ironing out whether it will be a two- or three-day event, as well as the location, Collins said he was very conscious about making it “of China.” With 500 to 1,000 the target number for the China edition, Collins said the mission there is to share information. “I want people in there who are going to do something with the information,” he said. “We want to take the questions that we’re posing at FCD in New York, figure out how relevant they are to China

Here Are Some Pro-Woman Groups You Can Support Right Now

After a campaign season marred by unrelenting misogyny, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become this country’s president-elect, and many women are reeling. We’re grieving. We’re taking stock of how we got here. We’re getting IUDs. As Clinton said in her concession speech on Wednesday, these results are painful for a lot of people, and they will be for a long time.

Mercifully, this country has long had organizations that fight, every day, to empower women and keep them safe. And while it is, of course, OK to simply be still and feel whatever it is you’re feeling, there are things you can do right now if you feel like you’re crawling out of your skin. Perhaps consider this list (by no means exhaustive) of pro-women, pro-girls groups that can always use support:

American Civil Liberties Union fights to support reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, racial justice, voting rights and free speech (to name a few). Take action. Make a gift.

Black Women’s Blueprint fights sexual violence against black women and girls. Donate here.  

Boys & Girls Clubs of America helps provide a safe place for boys and girls to learn and play through programs aimed at fostering leadership, health, the arts, etc. Here are a few ways to give.

Center for Reproductive Rights works to improve the worldwide reproductive rights landscape using the law. Report a rights violation, call on Congress to support women or donate

NARAL Pro-Choice America fights to protect women’s legal right to abortion services in this country. DonateVolunteer

National Organization for Women (NOW), the feminist advocacy group, has been fighting for the women’s rights movement since the 1960s, promoting reproductive rights and an end gender-based inequality. (On Wednesday afternoon, the website was temporarily down but we will update soon.)

National Women’s Law Center works to create policies and laws that support girls and women ― particularly those who are low-income and have been discriminated against. Take action. Donate

Planned Parenthood provides healthcare to 1.5 million women and men every year in this country (despite being under constant threat by the GOP). Donate. Get involved here

RAINN is the largest organization in this country dedicated to ending sexual violence. Get involved by fundraising or helping with the national sexual assault hotline (among other volunteer opportunities). Donate

Save the Children invests in the lives of boys and girls around the world and across the country, directly reaching more than 60 million children a year. Get involved here

Ultra Violet helps combat sexism and supports sexual assault victims. Take action here

21st Century U.S. Military Manuals: Physical Fitness Training FM 21-20 – Exercise, Conditioning, Muscle Groups (Value-Added Professional Format Series)

21st Century U.S. Military Manuals: Physical Fitness Training FM 21-20 – Exercise, Conditioning, Muscle Groups (Value-Added Professional Format Series)

Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, the Physical Fitness Training Field Manual (FM 21-20) covers physical fitness and exercise in the military. The preface states: “On 5 July 1950, U.S. troops, who were unprepared for the physical demands of war, were sent to battle. The early days of the Korean war were nothing short of disastrous, as U.S. soldiers were routed by a poorly equipped, but well-trained, North Korean People’s Army. As American soldiers withdrew, they left behind wounded comrades and valuable equipment their training had not adequately prepared them to carry heavy loads. The costly lessons learned by Task Force Smith in Korea are as important today as ever. If we fail to prepare our soldiers for their physically demanding wartime tasks, we are guilty of paying lip service to the principle of “Train as you fight.” Our physical training programs must do more for our soldiers than just get them ready for the semiannual Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). FM 21 -20 is directed at leaders who plan and conduct physical fitness training. It provides guidelines for developing programs which will improve and maintain physical fitness levels for all Army personnel. These programs will help leaders prepare their soldiers to meet the physical demands of war. This manual can also be used as a source book by all soldiers. The benefits to be derived from a good physical fitness program are many. It can reduce the number of soldiers on profile and sick call, invigorate training, and enhance productivity and mental alertness. A good physical fitness program also promotes team cohesion and combat survivability. It will improve soldiers’ combat readiness.”Contents include:* Cardiorespiratory Fitness* Muscular Endurance and Strength* Beginning Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Advanced Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Flexibility* Body Composition* Nutrition and Fitness* Circuit Training and Exercise Drills* Obstacle
