    Gosh, I know. It’s been quiet around here lately because, really . . . I just feel like God has been telling me to be still and be quiet. In this loud world of social media, being still and quiet isn’t always valued.  In fact, I once thought those who remained quiet were boring. Lacked pizazz. Bumps on a log. Clearly, I lacked wisdom and didn’t understand much about people. But maybe God calls us to be quiet because He wants us to think. Spend time with Him. Pray. Focus on our family. Rest. As I scroll through my own social media feeds, I read opinions about Bruce/Caitlyn.

    Empowered women are powerful and beautiful “The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.” Steve Maraboli We all have it inside of us … the power to take control of our life, the strength to go after our dreams, the faith in ourselves that we need to shine as we should. But, admit it girlfriend, we often let others dim our light, seize our power, and cause us to doubt our dreams. Today’s girlfriend advice is on regaining that empowerment and the power and beauty that comes with it. Here’s 3 ways to stay an empowered woman: 1.

    It's coming.... heading your way.... for some of you, it's only days over the horizon.... for others (like me) you have a couple more weeks before it hits.... No, it's not a storm, or a natural disaster... (although it certainly can feel that way sometimes) it's the end of school - the beginning of summer vacation! Have you even given any though to what your kids are going to do? You could sign them up for a whole list of camps, lessons and playdates, shuttling them about here and there. At some point, you'll become exhausted - but you'll justify this to yourself... "this is better than…
  • Shake Up National Martini Day with the Surfer’s Martini on June 19th

    Liz Gilbert
    2 Jun 2015 | 10:02 am
    Some prefer their martini shaken, not stirred. Some prefer it straight up or on the rocks. Some even prefer it dirty, but those with a real taste for adventure prefer it on the beach and with Tequila. The Surfer’s Martini, made famous on the sands of Southern California by the thrill-seeking, wave-chasing duo that created Peligroso Tequila, is a simple-yet-stirring twist on the classic cocktail.  When National Martini Day rolls around on Friday June 19th, consider trading in the vermouth and olives for something with a little more thrill and a lot more agave.

This is one of the reasons I much prefer sea salt to other salts-it's fresher, lighter and won't bog you don't like regular old table salt. Table salt has chemicals in it to keep it from clumping; such as sodium silicoaluminate, calcium phosphate or magnesium carbonate for example. No one needs chemical additives in their food!

    by Martha Kempner, RH Reality Check A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel last week recommended that the government approve flibanserin, a drug that has often been called the female Viagra. The panel voted 18-6 in favor of Sprout Pharmaceutical’s drug application on the condition that the company develops plans to manage the risks of the medication, which include fatigue, low blood pressure, and fainting. The FDA had previously rejected two applications for approval, citing concerns over side effects and lack of information about drug interaction. [View the FDA briefing…

    By Anna Gorman, Kaiser Health News Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, one of the largest and most respected facilities in Orange County, Calif., needed to move quickly. A big insurer had warned that its maternity costs were too high and it might be cut from the plan’s network. The reason? Too many cesarean sections. “We were under intense scrutiny,” said Dr. Allyson Brooks, executive medical director of Hoag’s women’s health institute. The c-section rate at the time, in early 2012, was about 38 percent. That was higher than the state average of 33 percent and above most others in…

I need your empathy to take the form of you examining your apathy, inaction, and complicity, as a white person in America. I need you to do this, for there to ever be hope that such violence will end. This is the greatest act of love you could give me in this horrible moment.

    For all that, though, my son’s first year was the best of my life. I learned that while travel with a baby isn’t easy, it’s doable. We took him to Malaysia, where I was speaking at a conference, when he was 6 months old, and then on a reporting trip to Panama a few months later. Both of these were countries we’d been to before; seeing them again with our son made travel feel new. He made staying home feel new, too. When I was with him, the habitual churning of my mind eased. Instead of arguing with strangers on Twitter, I spent hours in neighborhood parks I’d barely noticed before,…

    I don’t agree with much of this by Laura Kipnis – for instance, I have trouble being that casual about university teacher-student sexual relationships – but I think her article, “Sexual paranoia strikes academe” in The Chronicle of Higher Education is raising some worthwhile questions about vulnerability and power. Reading this article it strikes me that the over-simplification of sexual abuse/assault/harassment means that victims are only victims if they are ‘good people’ and conversely, abusers can only be that if they’re ‘bad…

Someday you will want these things, and you’ll only have to shop in your warehouse.” Never mind that their homes may be full of their own things.

It’s hard to be honest with people when you don’t know how they’re going to react, that they’re not going to judge you.

  • 5 Kegel Exercise Alternatives to Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor Muscles

    Betty Confidential
    17 Jun 2015 | 7:15 am
    Ever pee when you sneeze? You’re not alone. You probably have weak pelvic floor muscles, which are caused by pregnancy, childbirth, aging and being overweight. The solution is to perform Kegel exercises, which help strengthen those muscles. But not everyone digs doing Kegel exercises. They can feel weird, and even though you’ve been told 100 times to clench the same muscle you squeeze when stopping the flow of urine, it’s hard not to wonder if you’re actually doing them correctly.

    2 Jul 2015 | 12:01 am
    I’m not sure if I’ll be posting again until after the 4th of July. I will if I have a chance, but it’s going to be busy. Once we get past the holiday, I’ll probably share a few of the projects I’m working on. But, since I expect readership to be light over the next few days, I’m going to keep my posts “light” also. Today, I thought I’d share my doodling attempts. I’m seriously working on my doodling. OK, so maybe I’m not *seriously* working on it. But, I am attempting to learn a few basics of drawing. Here’s my first…
  • The Quiet Week …?

    1 Jul 2015 | 12:01 am
    This week is so “slow” it almost doesn’t seem real. The world seems to be on vacation this week and next …. I guess everyone is trying to take advantage of the long 4th of July weekend by packing vacation days around it? Personally, I’m trying to avoid our local beaches at peak times because they’re INSANE with visitors. Also, we’ve been having extra-hot, super humid, weather. It’s so BLEH!! Fred and I have been hibernating during the hottest daytime hours, and then emerging at dusk. Summer sunset in Laguna Beach. Yesterday, we even had a…

    30 Jun 2015 | 12:01 am
    I’ve officially  abused  broken in my new camera. I took it to Laguna Beach late yesterday. I sat, fully dressed, in the surf and took photos of the sunset. It was one of the prettiest sunsets I’ve seen in months. Summer Sunset in Laguna Beach. I drove home once the sky had turned completely dark. My car is full of sand. My shower is full of sand. And today I’ll be spending hours cleaning multiple lenses and my no-longer-new camera. I’ll also be going through all the photos I took. I really put the camera through its paces. I was constantly changing settings and…

    I was so happy to have Paul Newman work on me last Friday. I really needed him. I’m seeing him again today because he’s about to take off on a way-too-long vacation. (I need all the help I can get prior to his departure.) Fred did well during his first “real” grooming last week. He came home looking very fluffy. Of course, he was fluffy even before he had a bath. Fred has no shortage of fluff. Look Ma!  I see a pelican! Fred enjoyed going shooting with me on Saturday. We went to Crystal Cove State Park. (Oh, how I love my annual pass for all the California state…

    I can’t believe it’s Friday already again. This week FLEW by! The friend who was going to groom Fred on Wednesday ended up cancelling out on me. (After I spent hours waiting for her!) Sigh. Maybe she thought twice about the beast I call Fred? As a result, Fred is going to a grooming “salon” this morning. The owner of the salon has a Newfoundland and is, I’m told, “THEE” Newfie groomer for South Orange County. Let’s hope Fred doesn’t come back looking like a poodle! While Fred is being groomed, I’ll be spending a much needed morning…

  • POV returns on June 22nd with "Out in the Night"

    22 Jun 2015 | 3:30 am
    In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of "Killer Lesbians" and a "Wolf Pack." Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence. The award-winning Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women's uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender…

    The past few years have brought increased attention to child brides and the dangers of young girls marrying so young. And if you are like me, you picture an older man marrying a child. But CARE, a global humanitarian organization that fights poverty by empowering girls and women, is shining a spotlight on the fact that in some parts of the world child brides marry child grooms.Just as we know that child brides end their education far too young, child grooms lose education as well:Pannilal Yadev can’t remember much about his wedding other than the carriage he was carried in to meet his…

    I've been coloring various pages from Coloring Flower Mandalas: 30 Hand-drawn Designs for Mindful Relaxation by Wendy Piersall for a solid month now. And I gotta say, I don't think I've ever been so popular! Everyone wants to chime in on the grown-up coloring book trend. "Oh, I read about that!" "WOW! That's a great pattern." "What do you use?"To answer that last question, I've bought myself a fresh pack of color pencils. And I carry them practically everywhere I go.

    As you all know, I'm a big sports fan. I started a Facebook community for people who pledge to attend just one women's sporting event a year during the 2008 Winter Olympics. Since then the issue of supporting women's sports continues to grow, but still a conundrum. I noticed last year Chicago's local ABC outlet began to regularly give our Chicago Sky's (WNBA) score in the highlights. And while other stations do as well, ABC is more likely to show a game clip too. So they are getting the props here today. Occassionaly, our NPR station will mention women's college hoops scores or the Chicago…
  • #365FeministSelife Update: Logo & Fundraiser

    7 Jun 2015 | 10:18 am
    I did not feel the need to create a logo for #365FeministSelfie until we hit year two. And that was mostly because we were planning two retreats for participants to get together. And now, as we plan for our November retreat in Columbus, Ohio (tentatively scheduled for November 7th ant 8th), it was time for a logo. And here it is.Since I am not a handy person with a pencil and paper, I needed a lot of help. Emily F. from the #365FeministSelfie community helped take my ideas and sketched them out. I took those sketches to Victoria & Alma at Spark the Creative Agency. It was so easy to work…

  • Top Cell Phone Companies That Offers Best Deals

    27 Jun 2015 | 10:40 am
    Choosing a wireless provider is important as getting a Smartphone. The service provider offers the network, considering that you'll possibly end up spending an acceptable price for the service, and there is no reason in keeping with a poor service.

  • Architectural Photography

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:19 am
    One of the largest emotional draws to photography without people as a subject in general is the ability to demonstrate emotion and personality from inanimate objects. This is especially true in architectural photography. It is almost the opposite of landscape photography only in that the subjects are man-made in architectural photography. Additionally, the architects design the buildings to photograph well and to obviously be appealing to the eye. However, the essence of their internal spirit is visible in the manner in which the architects manipulated their media. How? Great architectural…
  • Black and White

    25 Jun 2015 | 4:26 am
    Photographers that shoot in black and white are very reluctant to use any type of technology to produce black and white photographs from any digital sources. However, there is photo editing software that is dedicated to transforming color formats to black and white. Still, there is even a debate about how much editing delegitimizes the entire digital format, but in particular black and white photography. This debate is further exacerbated because often turning photos into black and white is a method by which some photographers rescue unsuccessful color photographs. It is the reason that this…

However, this is a platform that is best suited for laptop and desktop computer software. Images can be altered in almost endless methods, but there are certain tasks that this software is very necessary for in photography. This software allows for retouching, cropping, image overlaying and many more effects that photographers need daily. Photographers can take a very wonderful, career altering photo with a single small problem. Retouching or removing these…

    Some zealous amateurs will be able to go out and purchase all the professional looking equipment that is on the market. However, they will be missing a huge opportunity to learn fundamental photography in a very beneficial way. The high-end equipment will be needed to photograph minutely detailed photography as well as portraiture, but a novice photographer or a person that is interested in the art simply as a hobby can take great photos with moderately-priced, point and shoot styles of digital cameras.

    18 Jun 2015 | 7:25 am
    Great landscape photography renders emotion from natural beauty. Initially, this may invite amateur photographers to try this genre of photography. When people understand that great landscape photography requires real work, talent and artistry, the revelation causes less willing amateurs to move on. However, when approached correctly with the appropriate artistic elements, great landscape photography is achievable and with minimally expensive equipment. This is evident in that many of the most famous landscape photographers achieved their great works with less technology than is contained in…

Hemp is also a complete plant-based protein beloved by vegans, packing all the essential amino acids — omega-3s, omega-6s, and gamma-linolenic acid — in addition to iron and magnesium.

    Tara Joyce
    24 Jun 2015 | 12:48 pm
    There’s always a goal. In every communication, in every expression, there is always a goal. It may not be conscious and it may not be visible, but it is there. Whenever we communicate, we do it for a reason. In both our business communication scenarios and our personal ones, our goals design and determine what we achieve, and what we receive. Through our language and logic, our (conscious and unconscious) goals reveal themselves; and through our resulting action, these goals are realized. When we take the space to consider our goals before we take action and communicate, we support our…

    Despite my best efforts to prove the contrary, what I do (or do not) deserve is not in my jurisdiction. I don’t get to decide whether I am worth it. When Life provides me with something wonderful, it’s not my job (or right) to decide if I deserve it. That decision has already been made. What I (or anyone) deserves is not in my authority. I am not the judge. When I reject the good things in my life, when I decide something is too good to be mine, I am choosing my unconscious feelings of unworthiness. I’m deciding I’m not worth it, and I don’t deserve it. And if…

Perhaps, you too feel you’d be happier without your imperfections. I’m certainly not here to disagree. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve your Self. But there is a difference between transforming your imperfections, and removing them. Transforming them allows you the ability to choose to see your imperfections in a different light. In recognizing them clearly, you can begin to feel different about them, and to empower…

It is the Taker’s perspective, for me, that’s absolutely fascinating and holds a wealth of information… Perhaps more so than the people and perspectives who are open to the idea.

    …and by that I mean: Your week is filled with a few opportunities to put up and shut up. And where does that get you? Repressed, suppressed, officially oppressed. Not taking any shit doesn’t mean you’ve got to fight or get scrappy — though sometimes, that’s exactly what you need to do — loudly. Either way, you can be classy about it. When the waiter asks how your meal was and you’re feeling disappointed, “Well, you know, it was less than awesome.” Handy phrase. “Less than awesome” gets the point across — it also reinforces that we all deserve awesome.

    And by “necessary hard work” I do not mean: slogging on something you don’t really want to be doing in the first place. This is not about sucking it up or faking it. By “necessary hard work” I mean: FIRST you commit to something that lights you up, pulls you forward, truly inspires you — the career, a relationship, a project (and YOU can be that improvement project, by the way.) And then it’s so much easier to embrace the heavy lifting required. When you’re doing the hard work in the context of joy and commitment, you tend to bitch way less about doing what it takes. So!

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — Palestinian Authority forces arrested over 100 Hamas members in the West Bank who were planning on carrying out attacks, a Palestinian official said, in the biggest raid of its kind in years. Spokesman for Palestinian security, Adnan Dameri said "We will not let Hamas undermine our security and draw our country to bloodshed, we will not let Hamas carry out attacks in the West Bank."

  • What's Happening At Zappos .... May Be All About the School Bus Test

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:45 am
    Over the past few weeks, there's been much written about Zappos' recent adoption of Holacracy--with most observers questioning the wisdom of CEO Tony Hsieh's bold move to transform the innovative retailer into a bossless company. The business pundits wonder why Hsieh is tinkering with the wildly successful start-up, which despite having less than 2,000 employees, has become the darling of both mainstream and social media headlines. What's the motive for embracing a radically different management structure when Zappos has already become a new fixture on Fortune's list of the "Best Companies To…

    Heart Rate Recovery This past weekend while my team mates and I were walking, one of the ladies asked us a question that has been on her mind lately. That question is the topic of today’s post…. How long should it take for your heart rate to return normal after an intense exercise session? I decided to do some research and find an answer for her, and YOU. The short answer is: Your heart rate drops most sharply in the first minute after you stop exercising; it should then fall about 20 beats a minute—a drop of less than 12 beats a minute is considered abnormal. The longer…

The ‘craft’ of many freelancers is generally a solitary one and work is done in a private, or personal, setting. Unlike the traditional work setting, rubbing elbows with people, being social and interacting with others in the industry on a daily basis is generally not the norm. However, to be a successful freelancer, you can’t keep to yourself. You must be social and you must market yourself. This can be intimidating, if you don’t…

    October is the season filled with displays of witches, ghosts, skeletons and ghoulish items.  They represent the dark side of us all and the fears that permeate our minds.   Horror movies pique interests on watching the terror a person must face to survive.  The HBO series Dexter is an example. (He’s a serial killer that kills other murderers;  a hero and a villain, all at the same time.) Do we need to watch horror flicks to stimulate our fears and darkness when the daily news fills our minds with fear everyday?  Ebola flashes across the TV screen like a red flashing light warning us…

  • Explore, Learn and Rethink Nature This Summer Vacation

    Marcia G. Yerman
    23 Jun 2015 | 9:49 am
    Summer break looms just weeks away and many parents are wondering about vacation ideas for the kids. What better way to share time as a family than to pick activities that are not only fun, but that also reinforce the importance of an appreciation for all things that are part of our ecosystem and our national natural resources? Predictions put forth in a recent study by ecologist Mark Urban maintain that the trajectory of climate change risks the extinction of one in six plants and animal species -- with some scientists being even more dire in their projections.

  • American Petroleum Institute Ads Target Smog Rules

    Marcia G. Yerman
    11 Jun 2015 | 3:42 pm
    In a move that seems ripe for a John Oliver comedy segment, the American Petroleum Institute (API) has taken to radio, print, television, and social media to blanket Americans with the concept that our air is just fine the way it is -- more specifically, that ozone pollution doesn't require any further regulation. They are disseminating a series of ads (one can only imagine what it cost to underwrite) that have an Orwellian quality about them. I could actually visualize the various focus groups they called in to come up with their strategy, determining how best to push hot buttons through key…
  • "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life"

    Marcia G. Yerman
    26 May 2015 | 7:47 pm
    One might think that as the subject of innumerable books, a Hollywood movie, and status as a feminist and artistic icon, there wouldn't be anything more to add to the conversation on Frida Kahlo. However, the recently opened exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden entitled, "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life" is proof to the opposite. The New York Botanical Garden, located in the Bronx, has previously presented shows that delve into an examination of public figures and their connections to nature and gardens. The subjects were Charles Darwin, Emily Dickinson, and Claude Monet. With the Kahlo…

    Although the country is over a year and half away from the 2016 presidential election, candidates are stepping up to throw their hats into the ring. Voters may be exhausted by the time November '16 rolls around, but the upside is that it will give them plenty of time to dig deep into each entrants position on the environment, climate change, and the commitment (or lack of) to protecting the planet for future generations. Gallup has put together a poll on the views of the American electorate focusing on the question of global warming, and looking at responses on a Conservative Republican to…

    Marcia G. Yerman
    12 May 2015 | 6:35 pm
    A new study has come to my attention. It proposes that air pollution may impact mental health. The BMJ published a paper that examined whether "higher past exposure to particulate air pollution is associated with prevalent high symptoms of anxiety." Melinda C. Power, based at John Hopkins University, was the lead author on the report. Using data on over 70,000 women between 57 and 85 years old, the Nurses' Health Study had participants answer an anxiety survey comprised of eight questions. The conclusions found, "Exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) was associated with high symptoms of…

    In Australia’s startup ecosystem, only 4.3% of startups are owned by women. Despite the fact that companies owned by women bring in 12% higher revenue on average, only 3-5% of female owned businesses receive venture capital. What’s the reason for Aussie women not pursuing high-growth companies at an equal rate as their male counterparts?  StartUp Victoria’s (Twitter handle here) Female Founders’ committee member Richenda Vermeulen shares her take on the most popular reasons below.

    The Obama Administration is committed to boosting global trade for women entrepreneurs and business owners.  They also want to create new export opportunities for them.  Here’s why: Pay more. Average pay at women-owned exporters is approximately 1.6 times higher than average pay at non-exporting female-owned businesses. This “exporter premium”—the amount by which exporters pay more than non-exporters—is larger than the equivalent premium for male-owned businesses, suggesting that increasing export participation by women-owned businesses may be one route to higher middle-class…

  • Yup, another ankle post

    19 Jun 2015 | 2:37 pm
    The ankle saga continues. Quick recap: sprained my ankle in March. Figured out in May I had torn peroneal tendon. Did a month of physical therapy to see if it would help. Spoiler–it didn’t help. And so, the order came in for surgery. Which I’ll be doing next Thursday. As in, less than a week from now. Followed by 2 weeks of non-weight bearing, then (hopefully) progressive weight bearing depending on how recovery is going for the next 4-6 weeks. I’ve been at a work retreat all this week, so I haven’t had (too) much time to freak out about it, but now that the…
  • Let’s catch up, shall we?

    5 Jun 2015 | 6:17 pm
    I keep wanting to come here and write, but then the only things I think about lately are 1) my foot and 2) work and 3) money and 4) my kid and I can’t make words happen about anything else, so let’s just go ahead and catch up on those things, shall we? 1) My foot. I’ve got one more week of PT before I see my doctor again. I’m not necessarily encouraged, mostly because I have seen little to no improvement in pain in 2 of the 3 areas (the 2 that are directly related to the torn tendon), and in fact have seen some pain getting worse in 1 of those 2 areas, so. Yeah.
  • Ankles are stupid, the sequel

    12 May 2015 | 11:15 pm
    Have I mentioned before that ankles are stupid? Lemme back up. (warning, venting & processing post ahead) In early March, I turned my ankle. It was dumb, I was just going to sit down cross-legged, and something gave out. I heard and felt a big pop, and it hurt like hell. I figured I sprained the stupid thing (again. Yes, it’s the same ankle as before). But I noticed the pain was in a couple of weird places. It hurt on the top of my ankle, like my last ankle sprain, yes. But it REALLY REALLY hurt behind my ankle bone, and on the outside middle of my foot (what I would come through…

    Today I was working with a coaching client who is at a crossroads and unsure what direction to take. We all have those moments in our lives where that question arises ‘ what do you want?’ It often seems far easier to know what we don’t want. Or if it is what we want, somehow we are holding back. Perhaps you’ve started your business after being made redundant, or you’ve been in business for a while and now you’re wondering about your next step. As Lewis Carroll wrote, ‘if you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never get there’. To discover what we truly want involves…

    Rachel Dolezal, president of Spokane, Washington’s NAACP chapter is being outed by her family who claims that she is not Black. According to the Spokesman-Review, around 2006-2007 Rachel’s mother, Ruthanne Dolezal adopted four Black children and her daughter began to disguise herself. “It’s very sad that Rachel has not just been herself,” Ruthanne Dolezal said. “Her effectiveness in the causes of the African-American community would have been so much more viable, and she would have been more effective if she had just been honest with everybody.” Rachel’s mother said…

    Inspiring Pretty The older I get, the more I want things done well the first time. I have done things the cheap way during my young adulthood in college, but now that I am becoming more mature, I want things done better – especially when it comes to things that I use every day. I have learned that investing in things such as laundry detergent can make you a far happier camper than just buying whatever is cheapest on the shelf. After all, you are spending good money on your clothing, so you definitely want to keep them looking and smelling good for as long as possible. This is why I like…

    Inspiring Pretty The main reason that I (and most other women) love weddings is the romance. The beauty that comes with flowers, wedding dresses and centerpieces is an added bonus. The love between the man and woman who just vowed to spend their lives together is what we all want to see in photos, and it is what every bride wants to capture in her own wedding photos. A bride wants a gorgeous wedding cake, but more than anything else, she wants romantic photos from her wedding day that she can hang around the house, so that she can feel the excitement and love that was that day.

He is also still determining whether or not he likes the game of baseball altogether. He loves to hit the ball (obviously) and when he catches it, he is ecstatic, but everything in between is what remains to be seen. There is a lot of waiting around, which can be hard for a young kid. It is no wonder why kids do somersaults and play tag during tee ball games. However, he gets very excited watching professional baseball games, and…

Living well and living with diabetes can mean the same thing. 1) You’ll be eating healthier When you are diagnosed with diabetes, your doctor will counsel you to make healthy food choices and carefully track your eating habits. You may be told to avoid eating excessive carbohydrates, which is the food group with the largest effect on blood sugar levels. Because diabetes comes with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, your doctor may also tell you to avoid foods

    2 Jul 2015 | 9:04 am
    Babies can be annoying and tiring and exhausting. I woke up this morning… well maybe I didn’t wakeup as much as I groaned and crawled out of bed this morning … exhausted. And of course my little miss decided today was her day to scream out her instructions. I don’t mind ignoring her most times, but I feel bad for the neighbors, especially early in the morning. I mumbled to myself about all the things I wanted to get done this morning, then I remembered that this time with her is temporary, this is just a season – this is a moment I will miss later on.

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:07 am
    I once got a job earning $15.50 to do nothing. It seemed the interviewer and the training manager did not communicate or something, because a few of us began the job while the training manager was on vacation. Instead of asking us to resume when the training manager returned, they instead looked for busy work for us to do. I didn’t mind. It was pretty good money, and after working 40 hrs a week, I had more than enough to pay my rent, utilities, and even afford a few movies and restaurant visits. After a few months, I found out that I had gotten accepted to my grad school of choice, and…
  • Why do people steal

    29 Jun 2015 | 1:31 pm
    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about stealing. It’s easy to say that we are all innately wicked, and that is why we steal, but I’ve been wondering… Some say it’s because of poverty, but I know people raised poor who don’t steal. They may have stolen when they were younger, but for whatever reason no longer choose to steal. Some say it’s because they were raised not to steal, but I know people raised not to steal – perhaps even pastors’ kids, who steal at the drop of a hat. The only reason I can conclude with would be a lack of fear of…

I go to Shoprite Nigeria often, because they are the only ones that sell a variety of items in one location. I purchase from Nigerian online stores sometimes, because it’s easier than trying to go to the market, struggling for parking, searching for the item, not sure if what you’re purchasing is counterfeit and then coming back home exhausted. But all of these places have failed me many times, and I wish I could stop, but these are items I would…

    You’re working your butt off, picking up extra shifts at your job or hustling hard at your freelance gig. It’s not like you’re out every night dropping hundreds on blow and hookers – you’re just living a normal life, spending normally, doing what normal people do. But every time that Friday paycheck rolls in, it’s spent by Monday. Where does it go? This was me. Throughout my twenties, I made really good money.

    1 Jul 2015 | 2:30 pm
    Harriet Quimby (1875-1912) was many things during her short-lived life: an actress, journalist, photographer, and most notably a pilot. In fact, she was the first American woman to become a licensed pilot, and the first woman to fly the English Channel. Once described as “a tomboy full of verve and spunk who was prepared to try anything,” this woman lived up to her reputation, choosing a life outside of traditional societal roles, while searching for adventure and exploration. Tragically, Harriet died in an aviation accident on July 1, 1912. In her honor, we are sharing 10…

The following August, she got some much needed female company in the lab when the brick maker released Research Institute, its first set of female scientists, which included 3 of the 12 minifigs submitted by geochemist Dr. Ellen Kooijman to the LEGO Ideas contest. That set sold out almost immediately. Since, LEGO has continued this refreshing trend of including more women in STEM and non-traditional fields to its minifigs offerings, adding them…

And strength training builds lean muscle tissue, which burns more calories at work or at rest, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The more lean muscle you have, the faster your metabolism will be. How do you start strength training? Try some push-ups, or a few squats or lunges. Use 5 lb. free weights to perform simple biceps curls or triceps pulls.

    Just about any woman or person of color who has expressed an opinion on the internet knows the wrath of online trolls. It’s frightening and real, yet the response is lagging far behind the technology. As John Oliver points out in another brilliant segment for Last Week Tonight, law enforcement often doesn’t even know what Twitter is, leaving women without recourse when they are getting very specific rape and death threats. More people need to understand the gravity of the situation, and the show does a great job of making the case for why we all need to take this more…

    Rebecca Griffin

    If you pay even the smallest amount of attention to American politics, you know that gun rights are seemingly inviolable. Even when unspeakable tragedies are committed with guns, even when the majority of people support common-sense gun control measures, it’s nearly impossible to put any barriers between wannabe gun owners and their weapons of choice. On the other hand, abortion rights are constantly under attack, despite that fact that a strong majority of Americans believe abortion access should be legal. Abortion is a safe, common medical procedure, but the government just…

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:21 am
      Clockwise from top, Pont des Arts, Jardin Palais Royal, Longchamp, Pont de l'AlmaYears before moving here, I read an article about French beauty secrets, one of which was, "Sleep in a cold room," to plump up skin or something- puzzling, since I don't know anybody with air conditioning at home. The Métro Glacière may derive its name from underground ice cellars designed to keep the royal family cool, but French people are wont to serve drinks sans ice cubes, and old buildings don't have the ductwork necessary for climatisation.

It's here, à deux pas de Coulée verte (Promenade Plantée). Turns out, some of my French friends didn't know this street existed. Often compared to Portobello Road and Notting Hill, the homes- constructed for workers in 1865- remind me of Belle's xenophobic  Disney village in…

However, once people become adults, they may toss aside what their parents have taught them, and have their own set of moral codes that they live by as adults. When it comes to relationships, there are some women who understand that some men are married, and therefore, they are off limits when it comes to trying to date them. However, there are some women that do not care whether a man is married or not, and are often attracted to these
