My recent post — Acquisition Addiction — has caused a bit of reader consternation that The Agitator might view the ‘acquisition’ and ‘retention’ sides of fundraising as an ‘either/or’ proposition. I don’t want to leave that impression. Of course nonprofits need to prospect for new donors. However, what I am interested in (and I know […]

Housekeeping Note

My chemotherapy, which until now has had fairly predictable side effects, seems to have entered a less predictable phase.

Daytona's Medical Center Is The Most Interesting Place You Should Avoid

4 days agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

Will Butler – “Anna” Video

Arcade Fire member Will Butler’s solo record Policy is shaping up to be mighty intriguing. Lead single “Take My Side” was a wiry blast of garage rock, a sound Butler veers far away from on the album’s second single. “Anna” is a propulsive new wave track laden with horns, synths, a striking piano figure, and [...]

White Plastic Chairs Are Taking Over the World

Across the street from my Brooklyn apartment sit a stack of white plastic chairs, slowly accumulating a layer of snow. On the other side of the country, three more of those same chairs are scattered around my parents' pool, while in Yemen, I imagine, rows upon rows of them are lined up for a wedding.

As drones grow in popularity, so too the danger of 'flyaways'

Robert Ross had his drone less than a month when it became a "flyaway." His pancake-size drone, a Christmas gift from his wife, caught an air current on the North Side last week and never looked back. "I was flying my drone at Jonquil Playlot Park," he recounted in a lost-and-found ad on Craigslist.  "It got caught up in the jet stream and blew away. Show More Summary

There’s a great e-card that reads: “Dear whatever doesn’t kill me, I’m strong enough now. Thanks.” It was the second most-liked item I posted on my Facebook page. The first was a quote by William Gibson: “Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, surrounded by xxxholes.” […]

7 Days of Movies: Captain America 2

Captain America was not one of my favorite superhero films. It was yet another hero origin retelling, so it already had an uphill battle to get on my good side. Perhaps more importantly, it was boring to me. It was a story about an unlikely candidate fighting in a war, winning the day and taking the MacGuffin away from the bad guy. Show More Summary
