As the 2020 election cycle ramps up, voters can expect a flurry of targeted advertisements fueled by big data on their doorsteps, inboxes and social media feeds. While microtargeting based on demographic information is not a new trend in campaign strategy, campaigns traditionally relied on analyzing voter behavior within broader categories such as age or gender before big data was easily accessible.
Lee’s Birthday twenty first August
It was Lee’s thirty eighth birthday in August. When he and I first acquired collectively, he was about to have fun his 18th birthday. His mam purchased him an enormous chocolate fudge cake and he ate three quarters of it, I swear. We have had a great deal of good instances on his birthday since. We frequently go away however we determined to not this 12 months as we had been going away the week after (which I am going to weblog, clearly!). Lee solely advised me a couple of issues to purchase so I purchased him these after which some aftershave and a few chocolate too, which he all the time likes. The aftershave is Davidoff Cool Water, which I LOVE on him.
Lee determined he wish to go swimming. We had been going to Hathersage lido, however their swimming instances go on the market at 6am every morning and are all the time bought out by the point I get to look! So we determined we’d go to Barnsley Metrodome. It is a huge leisure pool and after we appeared, you needed to guide an arrival time and you then acquired 90 minutes to swim, which appeared nice to us. So we booked for 10am, that means we principally simply acquired up, fed the cats, and went into city. You had been imagined to arrive “seashore prepared” that means along with your costume on, so we simply stripped and acquired into the pool.
It wasn’t too busy and it was SO LOVELY to be in a swimming pool. We hadn’t been because the finish of February and MISS swimming a lot. We often go to the gymnasium no less than as soon as per week and often guide holidays with swimming pools, so we have actually missed it. It was so pretty to launch myself into water. There is a huge leisure pool with a wave machine so we acquired to play within the waves a couple of instances, and there is a lane pool, so we went in there to swim all the way down to the deep finish a few instances. They’re linked with a shallow space that has bubble jets in it, so we sat there for a bit too. It was SO a lot enjoyable. However I knew that my physique would actually damage afterwards and certainly it did.
We acquired into the automobile nonetheless moist, sitting on towels and plastic luggage to cease the automobile from getting moist. We went residence, the place the cats needed to eat us (what’s it about chlorine), had showers, and headed again out once more to the White Rose Centre the place we had been assembly my mum and stepdad for lunch.
They have not been inside a restaurant since earlier than lockdown. My stepdad would in all probability get Covid actually badly and as my mum has nonetheless been working 3 days per week, they’ve actually restricted their publicity by simply staying at residence at the same time as lockdown has eased. We had talked about consuming outdoors, however not one of the eating places within the White Rose had been doing that (despite the fact that a few of them in “The Village” have tabled outdoors? So they may!). However Wagamama wasn’t very busy and we had been in a position to get a desk by the door which my mum and stepdad had been pleased with. We had been distant from others, so that they had been completely satisfied.
My mum has been to Wagamama earlier than, a few years in the past with me, however my stepdad by no means had. I knew they want a few of it, although. I beneficial they struggle the steamed buns and the gyoza, as a result of they’re scrumptious and folks are inclined to take pleasure in them. They went for different stuff too and so they LOVED it. My stepdad acquired katsu curry and stated it was actually scrumptious, he was actually completely satisfied to attempt it and stated he needed to return and take a look at another issues in there.
I went for bang bang cauliflower (one in every of my favorite dishes ANYWHERE), the steamed vegan buns, and the avant gard’n which I’ve had earlier than. It is a vegan bowl with an “egg”, rice, sticky seitan, edamame beans and extra. I completely loved it. My mum needed to make a few alterations to her meals and the employees had been very prepared to do this, which is nice.
We even had dessert! I would not usually in there but it surely was an important day in spite of everything. I had salted caramel ice cream which was very nice. We weren’t rushed out of the desk and by the tip there was solely us and a few different tables in there, so it was pretty.
My mum purchased Lee a brand new WOK! That is very thrilling! We have not had one for ages and often use a frying pan for every little thing, however since I went veggie I have been pondering we may do with a wok once more.
Lee and I had stated we would buy groceries after lunch, but it surely was after 3pm and we had been each knackered, so we determined to simply go residence. The kittens had been clearly completely satisfied to see us, and I had slightly nap as I used to be very drained. I would been going by means of some well being stuff and never feeling nicely.
We watched a movie collectively later after which Lee needed to play one in every of his new video video games, in order that was nice! A low key birthday however nonetheless a pleasant one I hope.
I used to be sporting my Lindy Bop blue polka dotted costume which I like. My picture is that includes Jasmine!
