Love it: New emoji “pinching hand”

As you know, I tend to let other sites focus on breaking news, but I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this news story about Unicode releasing 230 new symbols. Officially this is referred to as the “pinching hand“, but Twitter had a field day with suggestions for what this might actually be used to represent.tiny penis emojiI can only imagine how gay apps like Grindr, Scruff and Growlr might react with this new visual vocabulary. But I can sum it up my feelings with this emoji.

112 Shawmut mixed use project gets financing

South End development, Shawmut Avenue/Washington Street Block Public MeetingI first wrote about this project in the fall of 2017 but since then with the exception of a public meeting held last spring, there has been very little news about the proposed mixed use complex that will span nearly 2 acres on the border of the South End and Chinatown. Little news until last week when the developers announced they had received $105 million in construction financing.

For those unfamiliar with this project the Shawmut Avenue/Washington Street Block project will include three new buildings and represents a collaborative effort between the developer and two Chinatown community organizations. All combined the project will include more than 500 residential units, 230 parking spaces as well as space to house two religious sanctuaries with combined seating for 1,130 people, a gymnasium, fitness rooms, offices, classrooms and meeting spaces for religious education, recreational and social services uses. The new buildings will also have new space for retail.
