    Sometimes we need to look back to look forward. In this TED Talk, Dame Stephanie Shirley gives us insight into a time when being a successful woman in business went against the grain, and how things have changed dramatically for women wanting to start their own enterprise. So if you think you’re up against it, and are looking for inspiration, listen in to the kinds of challenges she faced when starting out. ‘Dame Stephanie Shirley – the most successful tech entrepreneur you never heard of. In the 1960s, she founded a pioneering all-woman software company in the UK, which…
  • Snack Time Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

    Oh Hey

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:48 am
    It is a well documented fact that I am a savory snacker, so when I posted this seasoned pretzels recipe and several people requested a sweet version, I was intrigued but I wasn’t rushing to the kitchen to whip up a batch. Now that I have, I’m a little bit mad at myself for not going to the sweet side sooner. After baking, they’re sweet and a little smokey and the salt from the pretzels keeps things in check. You’re going to love them. Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels Makes a big party bowl. Ingredients 1 bag pretzels — sticks, nuggets, or twists 1/2 cup butter, melted 1/2 cup…

    by Leanne ElySay "low carb" and immediately visions of steak and eggs dance in your heads. Folks somehow have this notion that your mouth will never again chomp into a sandwich or that your diet will devoid on anything fiber-filled.Phooey, I say! It doesn't have to be that way. You can have your low carb and get fiber too! Here's how.There is a simple math equation that you need to do to understand how this works. Fiber is a non-nutritive substance that aids in digestion. It isn't processed in your body like say, a donut would be (which is completely fiberless and filled to overflowing with…

    The fantastic but perhaps little understood thing about social capital building through Twitter is that you truly DO develop what feels like a warm, supportive in-real-life style community – with each member looking out for one another. Like any other community (in churches or schools, for example…), it can then be pretty jarring when an active member doesn’t show up as often. That’s why I wanted to share my current work transition.

    Entrees, salads and desserts to please a crowd. Spring always holds a special place in the year.  The last of the snow, sleet and storms have stopped making way for longer days and the desire to shed heavy winter clothes and meals.  Plates and recipes become lighter and brighter with the hues of colorful vegetables not weighed down by the heavy gravies and sauces of winter dishes. The first vegetables of spring are tender and green with a crisp bite making them perfect for a family gathering, lunch with friends or a change-up to the weekly dinner routine. Spring abounds and so should our…
  • The Day She Lost Her Jealousy at Barneys

    Sheila Nevins
    3 Jan 2015 | 9:00 am
    Originally published in January 2008… She had always been slightly envious of other girls. It started with doll clothes in third grade. MaryLou’s doll had high-heels and a bikini swimsuit. Hers did not. This competitive nature continued, with more serious manifestations, into high school. At the elegant Pierrepont High, she longed for Ginger’s blue eyes and Margaret Gullen’s knees. The fancy girl’s high school required dark blue knee socks with the dark blue uniform. Margaret’s knees, or so it appeared to her, were dimpled in all the right places — whereas hers appeared to…

  • Listen to Learn, Learn to Lead

    Andrea Learned
    9 Mar 2015 | 6:16 am
    How often do you hear a leader described in the media as a “good listener?” Not often. That may be because, both in theory and by tradition, descriptions of leadership still tend to focus more on the output (decisive! charismatic!) than the input. But, the best leadership in practice today gets noted for its calibration toward the latter. And, social media is an incredible source for that. One business leader currently well representing the listening and learning “input” approach is Deidre Paknad , founder and CEO of Workboard (her third company). I first came across…

  • Leadership and Transparency 2015: The Social Media Imperative

    Andrea Learned
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:51 pm
    By the time “trends” get mentioned in the new year forecast blog posts, they can be little more “old” than “news.” Though forward motion is always worth celebrating, change usually happens more slowly. Take, for example, the call for more transparency in business leadership. While today’s startups are more likely to intentionally bake this into their corporate DNA, 100+ year old companies have a lot more embedded business culture to counter. Still, no matter the corporation’s size or embedded culture, the imperative of transparency really is, to be festive about it, “nipping…

    “All things being equal” is quite an overused phrase, but there can still be gold in what follows it. Whether it’s a consumer’s evaluation of cleaning products or a way to differentiate potential business consultants, the reasons why one option is chosen over another is especially key in a world of choice gone wild. As a business thought leader, don’t you want “[your name here] is the best choice” to be the end of that “all things being equal” sentence? I got to thinking about this recently as it relates to Tweetchat guests, conference speakers, podcast interviewees and NPR…

  • In Living Soil Lies the Solution for Climate Change

    Clare Lenard
    24 Apr 2015 | 11:13 am
    Dr. Vandana Shiva, Common Dreams, USA - Our farmers are in distress. Farmers committing suicide is a symptom of an exploitative agriculture which extracts fertility from the soil and wealth from farmers. Globalisation and neo-liberal policies, which put the rights of corporations above nature and people’s rights, are at the root of the farmers’ distress. Since 1995, nearly 300,000 farmers have committed suicide. In Vidarbha, it is because of the greed of Monsanto, an agricultural biotechnology corporation which increased seed costs by more than 70,000 per cent and forced cotton farmers to…
  • Does the Use of Mut’ah Marriage Make Purchasing Sex Halal for Muslims?

    Naz Toorabally
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:05 am
    The notion that the purchasing of sex from a sex worker could be permissible in Islam (halal) sounds both impossible and offensive, given that sex outside of marriage is prohibited (haram). That’s not to say that Muslim sex workers do not exist, because they do, and that no Muslim has ever paid for sex, because they have. But the idea that there is a “loophole” in Islam that allows Muslims to enter the world of commercial sex in a way deemed lawful by Allah surely cannot be true. I came to learn of this alleged loophole when reading an article about the use of nikah mut’ah by British…

    So I start this post with the title and have to Google "miscreant!"  That's how directly my posts are channeled from that goddess of snakes who takes me over.Just joking.  But also linking to the religious arguments about us living in end times.  The valiant butchers of IS (ISIS/ISIL) believe that we are living in end times, and so do many American religious conservatives.  To give you a slightly humorous take, here's Michele Bachmann on that topic:Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed a mixture of condemnation and appreciation toward President Barack Obama for, in…

    The Economist has a long and pretty fact-filled article on the consequences of the missing girls in India and China (sex-selective abortions and female infanticide), combined with a few other marriage rules.  Worth reading it.  You can also then read the comments if you wish.I did.  And then I got a sore stomach, as usual.  The reasons are subtle, a bit like a giant hippo only showing its nose above the surface of the river.  Everyone else writes about the nose, whereas I see the rest of that hippo, the ignored part. Note that the article very quickly hints at the…

    Do you balance your life to make time for your girlfriends? Or do you struggle with balancing work, life, family, friendships and life? Girlfriends make women healthier, happier, less stressed, live longer and feel more beautiful. Those wonderful benefits of female friendship improve our quality of life and are substantial to our level of happiness. So why don’t we work to have not only a life/work balance, but to have a life/friendship balance?

    One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. Lucius Annaeus Seneca Per Wikipedia: Friendship is co-operative and supportive behavior between two or more humans. There are 15 cities in the U.S. named “Friendship.” Friendship 7, was an American spacecraft, used by John Glenn to orbit the Earth. Dictionary.com says FRIENDSHIP is: 1. the state of being a friend; association as friends: to value a person’s friendship. 2. a friendly relation or intimacy. 3. friendly feeling or disposition. Friendship is *kinda* a BIG deal, right?!

To that effect, I wrote my book, Make Up Don't Break Up, which includes the accompanying DVD Falling in Love and Staying in love.

He was nothing but a joy to live with since we picked him up on a street corner 15 years ago.

    Caperton
    17 Apr 2015 | 8:15 am
    Toward the end of January, Dove’s “Campaign for Real Beauty” celebrated its tenth anniversary. Ten years of raising women’s self-esteem and/or just telling us we’re not as ugly as we think we are (mileage varies). The campaign’s first video, 2006’s “Dove Evolution,” demonstrated the unrealistic nature of advertising images by showing the rapid-fire transformation of a non-model-looking woman into a billboard model, through the use of makeup, styling, lighting, and lots and lots of photoshop. The video received thousands upon thousands of…

    Brenda Zarate, Director of Christian Dior SF, Sonya Molodetskaya, and Rada Katz During the Sonoma International Film Festival the little town was abuzz with San Francisco’s VIPs and socialites.

  • Experience the History and Charm of Savannah on Beautiful Jones Street

    Shelley Seale
    3 Apr 2015 | 2:10 pm
    Savannah is a little like a slightly naughty debutante: beautiful, classic and polished on the surface; but with a funkiness that lies beneath, where things are quite as prim and proper as they appear. The leafy streets are populated with restored, historic Antebellum homes, and at the corner every couple of blocks are a series of small parks—some with fountains, all with gardens, benches and walkways. Savannah’s streets and buildings are as picturesque as they come; yet the town also feels very lived-in. It’s vibrant and artsy, with plenty of galleries, independent boutiques,…
  • Historic Charleston at your Doorstep at 19 Broad

    Shelley Seale
    3 Apr 2015 | 9:07 am
    The historic district of Charleston is so postcard-pretty perfect, the restored homes so gorgeous, that it almost feels like a movie set. Fake, almost; I expected to see ladies in hoop skirts step out of the horse-drawn carriages that ply the streets, or Rhett Butler to come strolling around the corner. Our location could not have been better than the Jacobson Building at 19 Broad Street. On the main street of downtown Charleston in the midst of the Historic District, 19 Broad is a block from the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon (dating from the 17th Century, where many Revolutionary War…

    When we were planning our trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and saw the opportunity to stay on a yacht, we jumped at the chance. What a cool, fun, different experience! The Starry Banner has so many things going for it: 1) Comfort – The boat had all the amenities of home: you first stepped into a comfortable salon with a corner wrap-around couch, sound system and flat-screen TV. A few steps below that was a galley, with an equipped kitchen, head (bathroom) and a small sleeping space up front that would be suitable for a third person or children (12 and over only).

    MGH Center for Women's Mental Health
    15 Apr 2015 | 3:07 am
    It is now widely accepted that there is an increased risk for depression among the children of mothers who suffer from depression.  Exactly how this vulnerability to depression is transmitted to the child is not precisely understood and is undoubtedly quite complicated.  Genetic factors clearly play an important role, but there are other important factors which contribute to the transgenerational transmission of depression.  For example, many studies have shown that maternal depression may contribute to parenting styles which increase a child’s likelihood of developing depression later…

But it’s also the perfect time to dig deeper, to find out more about yourself – and come out happier and more content for it.

The back cover of the first two issues are a play off 1950s comic book ads for x-ray glasses and hypnotizing tools, this time the glasses see through men's intentions and you hypnotize women away from being perfect...to allow you to take the top slot! I do want to conceal $3.00 in an envelope for a new signature. But once inside, the world of "Bitch Planet" will take your breath away. The premise is that in the near future humans have found a planet to exile problematic women at an…

"Princess Leia" picks up at the end of the "A New Hope" when Leia presents Luke & Han with medals.SPOILERS BELOW....The issue that Leia must contend with in this series is what to do after the destruction of Alderaan. Not just personally, but as the Princess of Alderaan. And here's where I feel the plot goes off track...The idea that the Empire is…

  • We Wouldn’t Need So Much Esteem If We Had More Love

    Tara Joyce
    23 Apr 2015 | 8:04 am
    Perhaps you’ve had an experience similar to mine. I grew up believing I could DO anything. I was nurtured by the concept that everything I desired could be mine, if only I was willing to work for it. What I did not understand, amid my action full of DOing, was this was not the whole story. Sure, I could try and do everything, and I might even impress myself in doing so, but without the other piece of the puzzle, this doing of mine lacked a real purpose. I had learned to be full of self-esteem but I lacked self-love. I knew I could DO, but I couldn’t see nor appreciate the BEing…
  • Addicted to the Pain

    Tara Joyce
    15 Apr 2015 | 3:11 pm
    Do you ever get so addicted to the pain of something that you don’t want to break out of it? Have you ever felt so much pain and so consistently that you start to feel you deserve it — that it’s meant to be there? Have you ever stayed with your pain — not changing it, not empowering yourself? When we do this, we make ourselves a victim of our pain. It’s selfish in the end. We’re so overwhelmed by our feelings of despair and unfairness that we forget our responsibility… to our self and others. We forget our responsibility to care about people and things…
  • You Need to Be More

    Tara Joyce

    Not more than you are but as much as you are. Not THE best but YOUR best. You need to live up to your purpose, and you need to know you have exactly what it takes to do so. Being your best is an inside job. It’s yours to define and to design. In the quest for more, it’s the desire to be the best that inevitably diminishes you, and your creative energy. For it’s simply not possible to attain. You can never be the best. However, awakening and exploring your desire to be your best is powerful and sustainable fuel for your creative energy. It is what drives you to live your…
  • Does Your Value Have a Limit?

    Tara Joyce
    27 Mar 2015 | 1:17 pm
    Can you really know your value? Is it a fixed thing? Is it of value to quantify your worth? These questions intrigue my mind. To explore this curiosity, I developed a (business) practice of not setting prices. In this system of pricing, I place no limit on the value of my offerings, and instead I trust and guide my customers to fairly determine the value of what they’re receiving, and the price they pay for it. In not setting a price on the value of my service, I’ve come to understand something powerful: the only real limits to your value are the ones you place on yourself. Your value…

    12 Apr 2015 | 5:26 am
    I'm a bit behind on my Thrive updates. But for good reason. I've been busy doing paid client work and spending time with our new dog, Mimi. Here she is hanging out with Brady and the cats. Isn't she pretty?  I'm hopeful she will help me to be more active. She has a bad leg, but she still loves to go for short walks. So that's a start toward getting me out and moving. Honestly, before Thrive, I'm not sure I would have agreed to taking her in when my friends were in need. I'm pretty sure the idea of taking care of one more living creature would have been too much for me. With the energy and…

    In today's online dating reality post I'll be addressing the subject that all of my Facebook friends are already well aware of, and that's the fact that people are disgusting. I share regularly on social media the raunchy approaches and messages I receive from men on dating sites. I do this beause, prior to entering the online dating scene two years ago, I honestly had no idea just how gross people could be. Maybe I'm naive. However, friends continue to be surprised by my postings, so I'm not the only one. If you're just as blissfully unaware of the depths of disgusting that you are likely to…

    It's been a little over two weeks since the beginning of my Thrive Experience. I'm still feeling fantastic. This update will be a bit shorter than my first because I haven't noticed a lot that's new. I've still got energy, and I'm calmer. Just more optimistic and relaxed, overall. I'm sure the improved sleep I've experienced has contributed to my better mood. And having the energy to get through my day absolutely makes me feel more optimistic. Before I always felt like I was behind on everything, and it seemed there was so little chance I'd get things done that it hardly seemed worth trying.

  • The dark side of big goals.

    Danielle
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    The ego loves big goals like a sugar addict loves sugar. The ego will tell you that the bigger the goals you have, the bigger the person you are. I should probably tell you now that I’m the kind of person who has very big goals. And if we had tea to jam on your life, and if you had even an iota of ambition, I would probably take that iota and get alchemical with it and blow it sky high. So, I’m the last person to be down on big goals. But I am usually the first person to ask, “So…Why do you want what you want?” Because… You are not your goals. Your goals…

    I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete. I was moving out of a house recently and told a friend I was going to smudge the place. (You know, “smudge” — you burn some sage and clean the energy out. Stay with me, this is going to get more logical for some of you. Actually…it will probably get weirder.) So, Cool Friend asks me, “Why bother smudging? You’re leaving.” Fair question. Usually you want to clear out the energy of places you’re moving IN to. “Because, I want to take all of my energy with me.” I clarified. “Huh,” nodded Cool…

    1. Overzealous competitiveness. Sure, play to win, but when the focus is on decimating the competition, you’re wasting invaluable creative energy that you could pour into your staying power. 2. Ambivalence and indifference. When you’re in touch with your truth, you can make a clear choice. (Personally, I’m always leery of collaborating with someone who doesn’t know what they want. Hell, I’m leery of having lunch with someone who doesn’t know what they want.) 3. Scarcity mentality. Because… If you think there’s not enough to go around, then you…

    When the suffering is almost intolerable. When you’ve had all you think you can take. When you can’t comprehend what the “gift” in the pain might be. When it’s not making any sense. When you’re asking, God, Life, WHY? There’s this: May my suffering be of service. At the very least. May some good come of this. If not for me, for someone else. Some good. At the very least. May my suffering be of service. It’s a sublime Buddhist approach to pain. When you’re in hell, the notion that your agony might have some divine utility helps you endure. It’s a light ray of reason, a…

I’m down with that theory. 100%. But here’s where the (people) attraction theory gets really dangerous — it’s with these bonus concepts: That we attract certain people because they are, on some level, a reflection of us. OR… (and this is where we really mess ourselves up) that since we attracted a loser into our lives, we must also be… a big loser.

Some companies have even admitted they have engaged corporate spies.

But that dive took many different directions at the Spring Speechwriters and Business Communicators Conference in Cambridge, UK, creatively organized by Brian Jenner and deftly chaired by Alan Barker. It's one of my favorite meetings, and, like any good diver, I always come away refreshed, having seen and heard new things. Here are some of the insights I gleaned:Stories aren't really digressions. They're halos: I think Hanneke Kulik gave my favorite talk at this meeting, a…

I've pulled these seven speeches from The Eloquent Woman Index of Famous Speeches by Women to showcase their messages about the environment, from pesticides and wildlife conservation to economic arguments for dealing with climate change.Fittingly for a global issue, this is a global array of speakers, with women from France, Kenya, the United States and the United Kingdom represented, and all of their messages ring true today.

It's a great way to look smart when question time rolls around.)I facilitated a workshop for scientists on communicating their research to public audiences, and asked a colleague to sit in to observe me and provide feedback (something you should do from time to time to ensure your ongoing development as a speaker).  One aspect he liked was an open-ended section, late in the day, when we were reviewing as a group short videos of some of…

The Polo Bar is Ralph Lauren’s restaurant around the corner, in the same building, as his 5th Avenue store.  It is super clubby and definitely uptown.  It is the new 21 Club. We started at the bar.  Great place to have a drink but you better be on the evening list of reservations.  No stopping by for a drink.  The guy in the photo above stands outside or inside the door with a list and if you are not on it, you can’t come in.  These two men looked pretty…

Lin-Manuel Miranda who wrote the play is brilliant, nothing less.  He was inspired to read this after reading Hamilton by Ron Chernow.  The hip-hop lyrics create a banter that is unique to theater.  Genius. The choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler is one of the keys to the show.  The…

    Long before I had a kid, I had fantasies about certain aspects of having a kid. Idealized aspects in most regards, frankly, that included things like “my kid will always be the most well behaved in the room” and “my kid will eat whatever I give him” and the like. Actually HAVING a kid has made me laugh most of those pre-kid ideas away in the face of the realities of parenting an actual person. One small thing that I’ve always held on to though has been reading, and specifically reading longer chapter books with my kid. I grew up being read to, and memories of my…

    JJ DiGeronimo
    20 Apr 2015 | 9:46 am
    Do you go to work and live in fear of people finding out you are not as smart, talented or accomplished as they think you are? Do you question your value to a project because you think you don’t contribute on the level of others. Do you compare your efforts to others in the company?  The Impostor Syndrome is a self-sabotaging condition we often experience that can hold us back from reaching new heights or “leaning” in to bigger challenges in our career. “There are an awful lot of people out there who think I’m an expert.  How do these people believe all this about…

    One of the many skills necessary to be a great leader in business is the art of delegation. Just like when we started to give our children a little bit of responsibility, there are different stages of delegation.  Bruce Fong shared his ideas of the different levels of delegation which are worth reviewing: Five levels of delegation: Level 1: Do exactly what I ask. I have already decided what I want the final outcome to look like. I already researched all the options and know what I want. Just follow my instructions. Level 2: Gather information.

    Actually there are far more ways than one to exercise your risk taking muscles however, for some, the very idea of taking a risk is frightening.  So where do you start?  In an article by Meg Duffy entitled the 3 Steps for Bridging the Confidence Gap, she talks about the importance of knowing/identifying your journey, taking risks and utilizing your community.

    Trade shows can generally be a bit of a waste of time… BUT choose your event wisely, and plan properly, and it can be time well spent raising your profile, making contacts, and generating new leads. We have probably all been on the receiving end of an approach from the smooth salesman who phones out of the blue, uses our name just a few too many times (you know the ones), and offers us a free space at the perfect event. But are trade shows the right channel for our business, and if so, how do we know that this is the right one at the right time? Well here are just a few things to consider…

The desire to learn is far more important than anything else.   In similar fashion, Ana believes that a parent who shares their native language in the home…

    President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama just announced Let Girls Learn, which will consolidate efforts by the U.S. government to educate and empower girls abroad. I think the Obamas are on the right track and I look forward to tracking the success of this initiative. In the humanitarian community, we’ve been struggling with the best way to give girls tools and opportunities. Despite the fact that adolescent girls typically have begun to take on adult responsibilities – indeed some of them already are mothers themselves – they often lack the knowledge, skills and networks to…

    13 Jan 2015 | 8:55 am
    On January 12, 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, killing more than 200,000 people and rendering almost 2 million homeless. Five years later, the country is still struggling to rebuild. Since then, natural disasters have continued, affecting millions more people around the world. Untold thousands have died, been injured or lost their livelihoods as a result. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable in disasters. If that is to ever change, steps must be taken before disaster strikes to address the particular needs of women and girls to ensure that they not only survive but…

    Inspiring Pretty Spring is here and that means new plants coming to life. My kids are used to getting seasonal fruits and veggies, because we have an orange tree, avocado tree and grapefruit tree in our backyard. By this time of year, though, their blooms are over, but the kids still like to get food straight from the backyard. So, they are excited when they get to choose what they get to grow in the backyard. We have done lettuce, carrots and tomatoes in the past. So, this year with the sponsorship of Tree Top, we started discussing the plants that would be in this year’s garden. I asked…

    Inspiring Pretty I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) a few years ago. I have been struggling with it and all of the problems associated with it before I was diagnosed. When you have PCOS, you are resistant to insulin and this causes problems in the functions of a woman’s body, which leads to elevated levels of estrogen and testosterone. Women with PCOS experience higher body weights, difficulty losing weight, Hirsutism, painless acne brittle hair, mood swings, fatigue, heavy periods, irregular periods among other things.

As far as our culture has come in gender equity, women still face different expectations than men. I love to help women claim their power, so they can turn their ambitions into achievements. By helping women advance their careers and their businesses, I can change the world, one client at a time.

    7 Apr 2015 | 11:34 pm
    Ladies love Jeeps. Jeeps are rugged vehicles designed for dirty work on rough terrain. They have large wheels and four-wheel drive for overcoming rocks, mud, and water, and they have open tops and removable doors to allow the rushing wind to rustle passengers’ hair as it passes through the cabin. Traditionally, Jeeps are the ultimate masculine vehicle — and yet, the fact stands: Ladies love Jeeps. As baffling as the phenomenon may be on the outside, the truth is that women love Jeeps for many of the same reasons that men do. If the lady in your life has a

    When your sleeping partner saws logs so loudly that it prevents you from sleeping, you probably have the urge to rev up a chainsaw of your own. Unfortunately, no matter how irritating it is for fellow sleepers, snoring is a totally unintentional nocturnal sound, and most snorers don’t realize the decibels they are producing until you give them the evil eye the morning after. Fortunately, even sleepers who have snored for most of their lives can change the ways they doze. There are a variety of reasons snorers make the sounds they do, some of which are genetically encoded while

Most adults in their late 20s and early 30s, who have jobs, spouses, and perhaps budding families, can’t and don’t want to celebrate in the ways they did when they were younger —…

  • Is Raising a Competitive Child Doing MORE Harm Than Good?

    Lisa
    19 Apr 2015 | 10:03 pm
    By Debby Shulman Lately I’ve read a number of articles addressing low self-esteem and heightened anxiety in young teenage girls who not only engage in aggressive sports but also who possess a competitive personality. It’s not just academic and athletic, but social and emotional competition stemming from unhealthy messages passed along by insecure and jealous parents. (Think “Dance Moms” on steroids) And all of this destructive behavior makes me feel we are moving a bit backward instead of paving a positive path for our children to follow. We don’t need any more hostile, little Tonya…

  • LET’S TALK ABOUT THE OTHER “F” WORD

    Lisa
    7 Apr 2015 | 10:03 pm
    By Judith Matz Have you ever uttered the words, “I feel fat?” If so, you’re not alone. The truth about the “F” word is that it’s actually an adjective, not a feeling. Just like the words tall, short, and thin, the word fat simply offers a description of body size. Unlike those other words, however, in our current culture fat is often associated with “bad,” imbuing a sense of moral inferiority to those who earn that status. Saying, “I feel fat,” actually means that something feels bad, and it’s expressed through a description of body size. Maybe you’ve gained a few…

    By Debby Shulman Sometimes our worlds collide. I don’t mean in an astrophysical way, but more of a “Freaky Friday” way, in which your kid says something and you are hearing yourself … or a version of yourself that you haven’t spoken to in well over 35 years. Mind you, I’m not waking up in the body of my 16-year-old (hang on, that comes later), but I am for sure going down the rabbit hole, back into my own 16-year-old head more often than not these days. And it’s dark in there. Little phrases and facial expressions resonate a long forgotten attitude, when I pretty much thought I…

    I wanted a small container garden with a collection of kitchen herbs that I know I’ll use regularly: Oregano, basil, sage, rosemary and a sad little cilantro plant that the woman at the greenhouse gave me for free. The herbs were $2.40 each, the soil was about $4 and everything else I already had on hand, making the total for this project about $13 and change. If you anticipate needing to take your container garden inside (because of weather or just to keep growing through the winter) you can pick up some plastic “saucers” in the garden center at places like Lowes or Home…

    Most of us go through life trying to be generally cool to our fellow earthlings. We don’t want to hurt people’s feelings or ruin their day. We want to be nice people. Most of us have probably also had our day ruined by someone  who did didn’t even realize they’d done something wrong. We’ve gotten comfortable. We’re a little bit oblivious and a little bit apathetic. And so we’re rude when we don’t mean to be.

    For decades, immigrants have found resourceful ways of growing things often in the most unlikely of places when a city’s tight spaces didn’t accommodate traditional gardening… like in buckets on fire-escapes! Over 100 years ago, my grandfather, an immigrant from Racalmuto, Sicily, came to America with empty pockets, but a head filled with dreams and ambition. He eventually opened a small butcher shop in Detroit, Michigan, above which my grandparents and their children lived.

    By Amy Ellrod – Have you ever thought about what it would be like to go back in time or to send a message to your younger self with perspective you’ve gained along the way? I think about that sometimes. Here’s why. When I was 8 years old, I dreamed of being popular. Movies like Can’t Buy Me Love and Adventures in Babysitting showed me just how amazing life would be if I was the popular girl. I fantasized about high school and what it would be like to be the most popular girl in school. According to Hollywood, I would be friends with everyone. I would have cool clothes,…

    On my 37th birthday, I came to realize the importance of shifting from the “me and myself” thinking to “us” thinking for the wellbeing of the family. When small personal expectations are not met due to unexpected events of the present moment, inner conflict arises. Despite that, if we allow ourselves to express the love we feel for the family, before we know it, we are back to inner balance. Daydreaming I’ve recently turned 37 years.

    Making new year resolutions can improve our lives if we diligently work on them. Even if we never carry on with them, by writing down resolutions it gives us the chance to dream of a better life. Yet, if we are wholeheartedly dedicated to our resolutions, there are a few tips to remember in order to avoid disappointment at the end of the year when we do the maths and we see that we are far away from reaching our goals. When a new year is about to begin, some of us like to make a list of resolutions. For the last 4 or 5 years, I’ve made resolutions that would help me live my dreams.

    9 Jan 2014 | 12:25 pm
    My intuitive belief, backed up by findings of researchers in psychology is that a healthy dose of self-esteem is necessary for individual happiness. Self-esteem, the way people perceive their own worth, lays the foundation for the thoughts, emotions, actions and behaviours that we adopt. The problem is that each individual has too high or too low of a self-esteem, which affects our inner life, relationships and professional life. It is possible though to discover a balanced perception on our worth in order to live deeply and in harmony with who we truly are.  Healthy self-esteem means the…

    If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past couple of days, you’ve surely seen “Football Town Nights,” a sketch from the third season premiere of Inside Amy Schumer. But I love it so much I had to share on the off chance that some of my readers live under rocks. There have been plenty of debates lately about backlash to poorly executed and unfunny jokes about rape, usually jokes in which the punch line boils down to “raping people is funny.” As Amanda Marcotte points out, Amy Schumer shows the “right way” to joke about rape:…

    If I had a nickel for every time I shook my fist and cursed to the heavens because PETA did something that made me angry, I’d have a lot of nickels. Think Progress recently covered what they call a “new low” for PETA: teaming up with notorious Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to promote serving vegetarian meals in prison. The piece reminds us about just what kind of character PETA is heaping praise on:  Arpaio earned his reputation as a notorious county sheriff for both his harsh treatment of inmates and racial profiling of Latinos.

    25 Apr 2015 | 6:08 am
     Like Lady Gaga, I didn't wear pants for years. I was anti-pants. Too much work- you have to close the fly, button the tab, choose a top, pull it over your shoulders, tuck the hem in. Exhausting! Dresses were easy. One zip, and I had a complete outfit. There's an old picture of me and a college classmate, garbage bags in hand, gloves on, cleaning the campus for our school's environmental awareness association. It was dirty, time-consuming work, but we're both wearing dresses.When I came to Paris, this became the subject of several jokes. Friends hashtagged photos of me to reflect my…

     I once went through a phase where I didn't wear- or own- a single t-shirt. I felt like I was above them or something. This was during that weird time in American history when every girl aged 18-34 wore a D.A.R.E t-shirt ironically and owned some variation of the "_______ Girls Do It Better" ringer from Urban Outfitters. Remember Quinn Morgendorffer's pink baby-T? From undergarment to medium to socially pejorative lexeme, no other garment is as accessible, versatile, and hard-working as the t-shirt. While some clothing items identify and bind the wearer to a certain subculture, t-shirts…

Just for kicks, I plugged it in yesterday, and the vacuum suddenly sprang to life, startling and nearly sucking up a nearby cat. I decided to just put it away. I like not vacuuming. It's peaceful, and at 68dB, ours is too noisy for apartment living anyway (just shy of a Hollister store). I took some photos of our home in its resting state; I haven't vacuumed in over three weeks, and I haven't steamed the sheets lately, either. There's a single tuft of cat hair in one picture. I…

But the researchers from three Universities in the Southern US stated that couples whose marriages last longer than half a century experience a rebound. As the marriage life is full of responsibilities, the time for love and affection between the partners subsides over time. But if they are successful in leading lives happily for long time, the affection between them increases and trust between them builds over time as a result their marriage life is unlikely to break down, Dr.

But did you ever think it would include provisions about social media? Many couples have decided to include clauses about social media to their prenups.
