Your flight attendants gave you very sound advice; good advice in the event of an emergency on the plane, but really, good advice in general.

I cannot speak for the minorities or the masses. I can only speak for myself – and as your mother – I must speak up for your future.

Added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2010, you are most likely familiar with hashtags throughout social media, but do you know where the term originated from and what the best practices are for how to use them?

Before social media took over the symbol, the lonely # [number or pound] sign was resigned to mailing addresses and pencil types. With limited use in everyday conversation, the pound sign was ideal for helping users of fast paced Twitter to group discussions in an easy to search platform.
