    Don Lemon has recently been in the news, inspiring me to look back at the interview I did with him in October 2009 on my Twitter Shared Experience theme. He was hot back then but these days, Don Lemon is in the news for the ratings he brings to CNN. I realize he takes some heat for controversial moments, but my personal experience with him is that he has a good soul. I felt it when he hugged me (see video).

On our first day online, March 7, 2007, I posted my first editorial outlining our vision for The WIP. I imagined “a news website where women were the experts, the public intellectuals, the writers.” I shared with our new community “I am fascinated by the internet and by its potential ... by humanity and our potential,” and my thoughts on the media as force for social change. I value news because it is a source of education. I concluded, as purveyors of news, knowledge and insight,…

    China’s economic growth in the last three decades has dramatically transformed the nation’s economic landscape, removing 500 million people from poverty. This progress, however, has been accompanied by an increase in some diseases – such as diabetes – notably associated with increased urbanization and changed lifestyles. Twenty-five years ago, the number of people with diabetes in China was less than one percent. Today, China has more than 114 million people suffering from the disease, the highest number of any country in the world. It is estimated that 11.6 percent of Chinese adults…

The US State Department said its destruction would be “harmful and provocative.” So far the Israeli government has shown no sign it will back off, and activists and locals are sleeping in structures in the village in case the bulldozers come. Susiya, which sits in an Israeli army controlled section of the West Bank called Area C, is set…

My mom is an expert at this sort of thing . . . She has a friend who lost a son in a tragic drowning accident at the age of three back in the 1970’s. Most of the people her friend knows shy away…

He played his last season of high school basketball, probably his last season of basketball ever. Because he doesn’t want to play in college. He wants to focus on college. I respect his choice, but if I’m being honest. I’m heartbroken. He’s played since he was three years old. City ball. Travel ball. Junior and High school ball. What will I do when next year rolls around and there won’t be any games to attend to cheer for #3?

    An arborist pruned the trees which touch Important Wires to the Snakepit Inc, and also pruned the Internet wire. I had about thirty hours without an Internet connection (the backup plan failed for different reasons) which made me realize that I'm addicted to this sh*t!I missed you all, even though you are invisible critters only existing in my imagination!  I missed even the inane Twitter fights I sometimes follow (with a glass of nectar and some popcorn or while rending my clothes out of grief or anger).  I would have chewed my finger nails if snakes had any, but I certainly…

    Two recent articles ask whether the phenomenon that is the Islamic State or ISIS or IS or ISIL took the Western world by surprise and why.  The first, by "Anonymous" in the New York Review of Books, argues that:The problem, however, lies not in chronicling the successes of the movement, but in explaining how something so improbable became possible. The explanations so often given for its rise—the anger of Sunni communities, the logistical support provided by other states and groups, the movement’s social media campaigns, its leadership, its tactics, its governance, its revenue…
  • Elite Young Women Now Plan For Career Interruptions. So the New York Times Tells Us.

    25 Jul 2015 | 5:39 pm
    This NYT story about young women planning more career pauses than their mothers has a couple of weird bits, starting with the headline.  That's because the evidence quoted in the piece is predominantly about very highly educated men and women in elite colleges, and I'd be willing to bet  that few of the mothers of those people went to Harvard Business School,say.But I get the point, of course, and that is to compare generations of women.  One study Claire Cain Miller, the author of the article, cites is about Harvard MBAs from various generations, both men and women. …

When you’ve got an important decision to make, it’s fine to ask for a little friendly advice from your girlfriends – that’s what friends are for.

    You know how our bodies often tell us what we need? If we’re deficient in a vitamin or mineral, we often long for something with it in it. When we crave fluids, it may be an indicator that we have a Vitamin B6 deficiency or that we’re just not taking in enough water. When we’re stressed, our bodies react with sleeplessness, weight gain or loss, changes in our physical appearance and attitude adjustments. All of those indicating, of course, that we need to reduce stress – right? What would you pay for a drug that would reduce stress, make you healthier, happier, live longer and…

We haven’t seen each other for too long and while we talk about getting together more, it is really hard to do when we all have jobs, lives, schedules that completely fill our lives almost 24/7. (Can you relate?) We decided, over our second glass of wine and countless shared updates and laughs, that we HAVE to get together more often. HAVE to.

    Thefirst love of my life was Donny Osmond.  An “expensive” love my mom would say after our weekly trips to Rexall Drugs for the latest fan magazines. Donny was plastered all over my room, 27 posters to be exact, and “One Bad Apple” was the soundtrack of my 7th grade existence.  I thought Donny was it.All that changed one day in 1972. A crisp, new copy of Life Magazine arrived in the mail, smelling that soft, waxy Crayola smell.  When I pulled it out of the mailbox, the cover revealed a young man in a rhinestone-studded jumpsuit, cut low to his waist.  His hair was…

He’d take my hand and gently lead me upstairs. We’d put on some Miles Davis, whisper to one another in the dark, and fall into a deep sleep. There would, of course, be other things in between.But this is how it will be in reality: we’ll close our laptops and go upstairs, he to his room, I…

    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.

    I’m a post-workist writer and economist, apparently… Frase belongs to a small group of writers, academics, and economists—they have been called “post-workists”—who welcome, even root for, the end of labor. American society has “an irrational belief in work for work’s sake,” says Benjamin Hunnicutt, another post-workist and a historian at the University of Iowa, even though most jobs aren’t so uplifting. A 2014 Gallup report of worker satisfaction found that as many as 70 percent of Americans don’t feel engaged by their current job. Hunnicutt told me that if a…
  • It’s actually not about whether a mother’s salary is greater than childcare costs

    blue milk
    23 Jul 2015 | 1:58 am
    Heffernan isn’t wrong here but she misses a crucial point: childcare doesn’t merely allow a mom to work, it allows both parents to work, or however many parents are involved. So everyone’s incomes go towards that cost. Add up the total income and then subtract the amount of childcare before you ask yourself, “Is it worth it for one of us to stop working?” Why is that so hard? If everyone benefits from childcare, everyone pays for childcare. Period. From Ester Bloom’s “Let’s kill til it’s dead the myth that mom’s salary pays for childcare’ in…

    5 Jul 2015 | 5:02 am
    When I watch the athletes of this World Cup, I see an entirely different way that desire becomes focused. Specifically, I see desire become externalized. Elite athletes have spent their entire lives articulating themselves through moving their bodies. To watch them want something is an exercise in watching desire become a visual, physical force. These women are not thinking about how they look, how their faces are posed, how their bodies might be viewed. The face becomes a way of communicating to teammates; the body, as they have trained it to become through thousands of hours of practice, a…

    I've been doing a lot of family research this month, in preparation for the next bucket-list trip with my husband. This trip will take us back in time, to the Outer Hebrides, to Stornoway, to the Isle of Berneray. It might take a year or more to even begin to understand this place where the Munros were "born", but we will get there.  I'm looking forward to standing, in our "weatherproof" gear, on a white sand beach, holding onto each other, face to face, hoods touching, eyes bright, hanging on for dear life in a 65 mph gale!The peat, the kelp, the blowing wind and the white sand are in…
  • Why I Love Maps

    15 Jun 2013 | 4:25 pm
    Why do I love maps? Why would I never use GPS?It’s all about the story.For me, the journey tells a story – as important as the destination. GPS is just about the destination – its clinical precision can be both boring and utterly wrong. When you can read a map well, you are able to tease out the stories in the landscape. You can see how the new road follows an old riverbed, skirts an iron-age fort, or marches ramrod straight along a Roman road. You can see how a town lies on a raised beach, even though it is now 10 miles inland.In my work as a doula, I see each woman as a having…

    Lyndsay's birth was an emotional triumph. It had been a challenging pregnancy, but she faced it one day at a time.  She gathered together her team - family, friends, doula, doctor. On the sunny birthing day, my memory is of so many women (including her sister, as well as her dear friend who had also been my client) - our hands, our quiet voices, and our hearts, helping Lyndsay through the waves. I say waves because most of her time at the hospital was spent in the bath. Low toning, the splash of the water...our words...you are safe...you are safe... Those are my memories of the day.

    By David Lindquist, IndyStar.com | Read the Entire Article Here But it won’t be surprising if Letterman second-guesses his decision to exit the airwaves, said Natalie Caine, a California-based consultant to retirees from the worlds of acting and politics. Similar to anyone entering retirement, Letterman is letting go of his career identity, daily routine, workplace support network and camaraderie of colleagues. Setting him apart from other retirees are traits, for better or worse, that accompanied his rise to the top. Known to be a harsh self-critic, Letterman lives for making the show…

They give to you because they want you to feel that you matter.  They want you to have bricks under your feet. They want you to feel hugged. We forget to visit happy memories as moon light to help you stand, over and over when you collapse, and when you simply love life.  They know you will doubt, fear, cry, freeze, and beam all through your life.  They want you to remember what they whispered or showed…

NATALIE CAINE: When heading toward retirement or sitting in this stage of life, doubts and regrets inevitably visit. It can be a painful time. 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. One of the most common questions I am asked by people close to retirement, or already retired, is, “why at times do I feel so off or unhappy when this is a good time in my life?”  From my experience, the answer is…

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.

    Because someone enjoys great photography does not mean that they can simply buy a camera and begin to produce great work. Photography is not only a talent, but it is also a skill. This means that even people that have talent will also have to work very hard to become good at the profession. Photography is like any other art, and very few people are artist. Still fewer people are able to make a living at photography even in a technical aspect. Famous photographers are few and far between.

    Composition is the reigning artistic element in photography. In a basic sense, it is simply lining up a picture correctly. However, correct composition has been debated throughout the history of art. In artistic composition there is a theory that asserts a perfect composition, and it reigns true in most cases. In its simplest form, it simply states that the focal point of works of art should not be located directly in the center of the composition. This is not pleasing aesthetically, but minutely off center to either side makes for more of a pleasing balanced composition. Artistic Law This is…

    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…

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.

    Unlike a lot of little girls, I didn’t grow up thinking about or planning my dream wedding. In fact, up until just a few years ago I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted to get married. It wasn’t something I labored over or gave a tremendous amount of thought to; I simply thought, “Some people get married and that’s great, but I probably won’t.” And then the man I love changed everything about the way I had always thought about marriage, and particularly my participation in one. Earlier this month, on July 11, 2015, I married a man who has repeatedly proven…

    leonid_yaitsky/Flickr In January of 2015, Singapore celebrated 50 years of its independence. This time frame renders the country ripe for momentum in its arts scene — still young enough in its independence to exude that fresh, liberated energy through arts and culture, yet mature and modern enough to have something to say. From galleries and museums to festivals and art hotels, here are some of the key reasons you should take the time to experience Singapore’s evolving arts scene. 1. Incredible National Museums Singapore has five national museums for the art lover to tour and…

  • The Ins and Outs of Buying Your First Home #infographic

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    There’s not much more many of us can hope for than getting to live our lives in the forefront of our dream homes. Unfortunately, dream homes rarely come with a dream price, and many real estate and financial experts can attest to the fact that while in search for the space that they will live, love, and grow in, many first-time home buyers wind up making some very costly mistakes. The first step to buying a home is being prepared. What should your credit score be in order to secure a home loan at the best rate, and how can you take steps to raise your credit score before applying? How…

  • Trying To Solve Gender Imbalance From “The Other Side Of The Table” (Guest Article)

    Tara Joyce
    26 Jul 2015 | 2:19 pm
    This article is written by Ezequiel Djeredjian, a male member of the Athena team. Ezequiel and Athena are doing great work to solve the gender imbalance in business, through programming empowering women to grow themselves, and their dreams of entrepreneurship. Their work is a beautiful reflection of Innerpreneurship, and the collective value it creates. Similarly, I am becoming increasingly more aware of our gender imbalance, and my need to seek solutions. Sharing Ezequiel’s perspective with you is a step in this direction, a symbol of my growing dedication to solving this problem —…
  • Getting What You Want Without Knowing What You Need

    Tara Joyce
    19 Jul 2015 | 7:12 pm
    In our Modern culture, we are encouraged to be unbalanced in our doing, in our esteem. We’re taught to believe we have the right, and the entitlement, to do and have whatever we want. Yet we lack the love to know what we truly need, and how to get it. And so we find ourselves exerting our power, our esteem towards our Self, onto others, in hopes that we will get what we want, without having to do the work to know what we need. When did our wants become so important? Perhaps it was when we, as a collective, fulfilled our most basic survival needs. With our drive to survive less pressing,…
  • It’s Not What Happens, It’s How You Handle It

    Tara Joyce
    5 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    Life happens… Things you can’t control… People you can’t avoid… Stuff happens just beyond your reach, and it affects you. I used to think it was my responsibility to control the things that happened in Life. I strived to minimize the bad and to maximize the good. I watched and I stood prepared. I let in only what passed my vigorous tests. As Life continued, and continued to happen, I began to see the illusion of control I felt I had. Despite my best efforts, I could not manage and shape Life into being exactly as I wanted it to be. I could not make it more…
  • What’s the Point of This Communication?

    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…

  • Mind Your Own Business

    28 Jul 2015 | 11:17 am
    One of the sad facts about the flood of starry eyed people to the “start a business on the internet” phenomena is that they start something but miss completely the business part of the equation. It isn’t really their fault. Realising you are “in business” is a two part thing, and those parts are seldom touched on in online education, or even for small business owners offline. Part One – The mindset Take a moment and picture what a business owner looks like to you in your imagination. Think about what they look like, the things they do, where they go, the kind of calls they…

    You’ve probably heard the phrase “good enough is good enough” but what does it mean? This is a concept I’ve been battling with quite a bit lately while creating lessons for the Secret Women’s Business Network. After recording Lesson 3 for the 3rd time, Allison and Barb had to give me a metaphorical slap round the face and shout “No More”! “Good enough is good enough” basically means, stop spending hours trying to make your work – whether it be a blog, article, report, video or podcast – absolutely perfect, and just get it out there. There’s no point creating anything…

    Have you ever thought about the people that make up your customer base?. Like really thought about them? Forget about thinking about them as just a faceless cash source, an anonymous wallet/handbag that you need to somehow pry open. Think of them as a person.A real person. My favourite cafe knows that they have a lot of people passing by who are taking their dogs for walkies. The cafe places bowls of water under each of the tables. Costs nothing to do, does not scream “I want your money”, is probably not even noticed on a conscious level by non-dog people, but is appreciated by those that…
  • The Death of Customer Service

    21 Jul 2015 | 12:13 pm
    Over the past 2 weeks I feel like I have been in the Customer Service Graveyard – the place where good customer service goes to die. Emails unanswered, then new promises sent of a better service; products cancelled, then credit card payments taken anyway; more promises made… I know I’m not the only one either because I am now in the unenviable position of having people ask me for advice and assistance with similar problems they’re having. Anybody who follows me on Twitter will be wondering whether I am about to call-out a particular company for their poor customer service. Oh, I know…

    I am not a big fan of political correctness. That is not to say that I go out of my way to be deliberately obnoxious or offensive, I just don’t see the need to twist myself into a pretzel just because the current social climate does not put any weight on personal responsibility for ones own feelings or reactions. I respect you have an opinion, in fact I will fight for your right to express that opinion whether I agree with it or not. I would hope the feeling is reciprocated. But if you don’t like my stuff, fair enough, I am not going to cry when you don’t read it. Now we have that out…

    26 Jul 2015 | 2:43 pm
    The alternate title to this post was going to be "How I Lost Four Men in One Week," a situation I lamented about on Facebook the other day. It's true. Four sexual/potential sexual connections gone in the span of one week. Yes, I was seeing four men. This shouldn't be a surprise to those who know me. I've never hidden the fact that I don't date exclusively. That means I see more than one man at a time. So now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's take a look at how I've managed to go from four romantic partners down to zero, shall we? Looking for Connection, Not Casual Sex I've blogged…

I am so passionate about these products because it is no exaggeration when I say my life has been changed since using them. Let me take some time to share with you the ways in which I have been changed as a person since beginning my 8-week Thrive Experience.  I'm Sleeping Better The main reason I had originally agreed to try a sample pack of Thrive was because I absolutely NEEDED more energy.

    I love to shop online. I've learned a number of tricks over the years when it comes to saving money. One of the biggest is to use coupon or promo code sites beofre checking out when making an online purchase. Always. I always do a quick web search for coupons, promo codes or discounts before I complete my order. Nearly every time, I'll find some bit of savings, even if it's only 10%. I'm pretty familiar with what's out there when it comes to finding a deal. However, I just learned about a coupon site called Ann Coupons, and I must say that I'm impressed.  The first thing I noticed about the…

Since that time has come and gone, I will simply post the side by side photo here. My next post will be an in-depth review of my entire 8-week Thrive Experience, with photos. For now, take a look at my photos from week 6. At this stage, I'd lost about seven pounds, I believe. The biggest difference you can see is in my face, I think. For the first time, I actually chose to purchase a product based on the benefits it offered BESIDES weight loss. When I decided to purchase my…

  • You’re on the verge of a miracle. #Truthbomb elaborations

    reneemasur
    30 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    photo credit: @kate_toholka A Course In Miracles defines a miracle as “a shift in perception.” I love that, because that definition covers a lot of bases. You can choose to believe in spontaneous healing and create a physiological miracle. Or you can simply decide to forgive someone you thought you’d never, ever forgive. “It’ll take a miracle,” you might have thought. But often, the miracle comes from within. And you can create that miracle anytime by changing your mind about something. Let it be easy. Let it be grand. Let it be now. Let it be so. You’re on the verge of a…

    Do you know the story of the man who was hitting himself over the head with a hammer? “Why do you keep hitting yourself with that hammer?” a shocked passerby asked him. “Because,” the man replied, “it’s going to feel so good when I stop.” Examine the evidence. You keep fighting the same fight. You’re losing sleep. You’re sick of hearing yourself complain about the same damn things over and over again (yammer, hammer, hammer). Clearly, wrestling isn’t getting you closer to free. It’s quite possible that…you have no fight left in you. This is excellent news! This is…

But what we might critique as procrastination can be a misdiagnosis for instinct. One of the effects of living in a hyper-productive society is that intuitive resistance can get labeled as procrastination. But… What seems like avoidance may be a deeper inkling of wrong timing.  Hesitation can be a form of wisdom. Motives become clearer; new information shows up. Amazing grace can happen when you choose inner rhythms over external pressure. It’s worth…

    As someone who is neither black nor white literally, I usually see racial issues in terms that are neither black nor white figuratively. I do not believe every claim of racism. I also don't disbelieve every claim related to race. I am persuaded by the facts, especially the evidence suggesting attitudes and actions can be racial without being racist. They may reveal implicit bias, the forms of prejudice and micro-aggression that are not clear and not severe. These hints and signals and symbols line up along a spectrum. They point at what is worse. A single incident or case might be ambiguous…

    Shattered cellphones. Fireworks accidents. Failed drug tests. The NFL's endless aggravation raged through an offseason marked by more crime and punishment, rules violations by owners, and the never-ending "Deflategate" saga. The latest black eye came from Pro Bowl defensive end Sheldon Richardson, who addressed his recent drug suspension by telling his teammates and coaches as they reported to training camp that "they don't have to worry about my name being in the news again." A short time later, reports surfaced of Richardson being charged with resisting arrest and multiple traffic…
  • Joe Biden Said No Before. Why Run Now?

    WASHINGTON -- Days after Joe Biden buried his son Beau in early June, the 72-year-old vice president was saying privately that he had concluded that he “didn’t have the heart” or the drive to run for president in 2016.  At the time, Biden made no mention of what, in recent weeks, has come to be described as Beau’s deathbed plea to his father to seek the Democratic nomination. “I’ve had enough,” he told one friend in early June. Long before that, in fact, longtime high-level aides, such as Ron Klain, had concluded that Biden was a…

    "Gambit" is still in the cards for Channing Tatum.  Despite reports that the actor may drop out of Fox's upcoming "X-Men" spinoff, The Hollywood Reporter says Tatum has closed a deal for the role. News that Tatum may not play the card-wielding mutant broke after contract negotiations reportedly hit a snag. Tatum's level of involvement in the "X-Men" franchise was one of the major points being discussed. But it looks like the impasse wasn't as bad as previously thought since everything has finally been worked out. Back-and-forth with top stars is "normal" for…

Let me first start by saying that it does not matter to me if you prefer organic food, conventional food, processed food, fast food – for the sake of this conversation, let’s just agree that food is…

Dresses are falling off hangers, blouses are crushed and crinkled, and there’s a pile of jeans in the corner that my dog has chosen as his new crash pad. I don’t know what fits and what doesn’t and there’s a fair amount of items that still have the tags attached. All of this means just one thing. It’s time for a shopping sabbatical.

    A note from Natalie: My team and I are taking a summer sabbatical so we’re bringing back some of our greatest hits for you to experience for the first time or enjoy again… Summer’s always a great time for catching up on reruns!  This week I want to help you change your mind about making money. If you look at your gain as someone else’s loss, you’re playing a zero sum game. This is a dangerous money mindset that holds you back from being able to make more money and achieve the success you deserve. I talk to a lot of entrepreneurs, especially women, who actually feel guilty…

  • Famous Speech Friday: Countess Markievicz on 1909's ideal free woman

    Denise Graveline
    31 Jul 2015 | 1:45 am
    Countess Markievicz, an Irishwoman born Constance Gore-Booth, made a lifetime out of defying description. A woman of privilege, she worked as a political activist and suffragette. She was at home in ball gowns and in what was then considered men's attire. She fought for Irish independence, taking part in the 1916 Easter Rising and held in prison afterward, the only woman held in solitary confinement. She was sentenced to death, but spared the firing squad; after that, she left Ireland, only to be re-arrested on her return.From her jail cell in 1918, she would become the first woman elected to…

    (Editor's Note: Talk About the Talk is a series in which speakers I've worked with share their experiences preparing and delivering major talks. Dr. Lucy Rogers and I met at the speechwriting conferences I attend in the UK and Europe, and as you'll read below, she participated in my workshop on What goes into a TED-quality talk earlier this year. In one of our exercises, I asked participants to pair up and share their ideas for TED-style talks, then learn what their partner thought and how he or she would suggest adjusting it--a great technique to help you see what your audience might want.

    In February, The Eloquent Woman participated in a webinar about public speaking fears, including the fear that some women have about putting themselves out there with a speech containing strong opinions. These nerves can silence women and give away their power before they even open their mouths--and there's too much of that going on already. Member of the Israeli Knesset (MK) Stav Shaffir recently offered a great reminder of what we might miss if we keep quiet rather than challenge authority or voice an unpopular opinion. Her blast of a speech in the Knesset in January got her removed from…
  • Did I just get #publicspeaking advice? Shade? Or a virtual "shut up"?

    Denise Graveline
    23 Jul 2015 | 2:15 am
    I've written here about how women speakers' hair, wardrobe, and overall appearance can be used against them as "virtual mute buttons" that keep us from hearing their words. But there's another virtual mute button out there, one that's even more perturbing to women speakers: Public speaking advice that's really an attempt to put them back in their place, preferably a silent place.Here's a good example: A young woman friend sought my advice after she'd been on a radio program, interviewed about a debate on a feminist issue. Her role was to defend the feminist perspective, and she did so,…

    Dietland, written by first time novelist Sarai Walker, is an interesting novel on many levels.   There is a crescendo through the book that slowly reveals itself to be more than a book about a 300 pound woman named Plum who is the main character of the book.  It is a feminist manifesto.  I would call it a femifesto. The beginning of the book focuses on Plum who weighs 300 pounds and hides behind everything except for the skinny persona that she ghost writes for under for a teen magazine, like a Dear Abby column.  She answers questions to young women about rape, abuse, self destruction,…

    I have never been a great airplane passenger. I prefer to be on the ground. Now that I have learned about Aerotoxic Syndrome, a heath issue not in the public domain, I have a new concern. In a pattern strongly reminiscent of how "Big Tobacco" and "Big Oil" have used their power and influence to keep a story under the radar, the problems with the air breathed onboard airplanes is still not well-known. This is despite a 2013 broadcast feature on 60 Minutes called, "The Airline Industry's Darkest Secret." There have been plenty of calls to action by those directly impacted on a daily basis --…

The event was organized by the Hostos Center for Bronx Nonprofits (CBNP), as part of an ongoing "Public Conversations Series."

    Women entering the wine business are disrupting the global wine industry to make wines that are both more accessible and responsibly produced. Oddly enough, women, however, have been traditionally excluded from the world of wine, making them more likely to create boundary-pushing wines that defy traditional categories. Two women who fit this bill are Mika Bulmash (below left), CEO of Wine for the World and international development specialist, and Ntsiki Biyela (right), the first black South African female winemaker at Stellekaya, a boutique winery in Stellenbosch.

For example, women entrepreneurs in Uganda have asked their government to address the issues of non-tariff barriers (NTB), saying they hinder women’s participation in cross border trade.  NTBs are a form of restrictive trade where barriers to trade are established and take a form other than a tariff.  Non-tariff barriers might include quotas,…

    It’s been close to a month since my surgery, and things are chugging along. I had a pretty rough go of things for a couple of weeks there–I fell (everything is fine), I struggled a lot with being so limited with mobility, nerve pain caused a lot of distress, and I had a couple of emotional breakdowns. Then I rallied. Then I broke down again. Then I rallied. Then I fell again. Then I broke down again. I guess no one said recovery would be easy. Things are slowly getting better, although not fast enough for my liking. I can sleep without the boot now, and take it off during the day…

    I’m now more than a week out from my surgery. It was a good thing, although I’m at the point where I’m over the whole nonsense & kind of wish I could either undo it or just fast forward through this recovery phase. But let me back up. One of my biggest concerns prior to surgery was that they’d get in there and then say, “eh, we didn’t really need to do this.” Well, that fear turned out to be unfounded, as they actually did MORE than anyone was expecting. Instead of just repairing the torn tendon, they ended up: repairing the torn tendon,…

    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…

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.

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…

These unseen, but clearly heard, women and men will sympathize with you, laugh with you, offer advice, cheer your soul and cheer you on—with so much care, thought and love that even after almost five years of blogging it still amazes me.

But no, I don’t do that either. So, what do I do?  And what have I learned from writing hundreds of preschool episodes for television? Singing helps.

Her passion and her expertise was quite evident.  It was also nice to see a similar philosophy between the two of us.  While my goal has been to educate children through media, my philosophy is grounded in the belief that you must inspire kids and immerse them into the world of education, at their level, and not force the material. 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…

We’re even seeing recognition of the importance of sexual and reproductive health not only as a human right but as an important factor in economic development. What is often not acknowledged in these discussions – or at least not seriously – are the women in displacement, even while their numbers reach jaw dropping highs.

    Inspiring Pretty The wedding reception entrance is an important moment of the wedding and the start of the marriage of the bride and groom. It is the first time that the couple presents themselves as husband and wife after the altar. More importantly (or maybe just more fun), it marks the start of celebration with friends and family. A couple can make the wedding reception entrance as fun or as sentimental as they want to make it to fit their personalities. You can set the mood with the music that you choose.

    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. The perennial…

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.

On the other side, there’s a rounded, blurring smudger tip for naturally softening the shade. I applied a light coat to my lips for a touch of brightness, and voila! My mouth looked amazing!

    Pema Chodron is much on my mind these days, because I am in the process of taking an online course with her. As I dipped into The Pocket Pema Chodron this morning, I found this parable about fear and the young warrior. I hear from so many women that they are fearful to do what they really want to do, or try. How to deal with that fear? Chodron offers a practical solution: feel the fear, honor the fear, even hear out the fear. But never, ever do what fear tells you to do. So, if we can make friends enough with our fear, we’ll be able to distinguish between our relationship with fear and…

Last week Meek Mill claimed Drake has a ghostwriter and even though I love my non-threatening half negro from the North, I was not clutching my pearls at that revelation. Drake responded, so did the alleged ghostwriter and the rest is negroidian history… for now. Fast forward a week and now David Banner wants his coins from Lil Wayne! I mean, I guess?

    We’re all looking to keep some extra coins in our pockets, right? We all need money for something. Whether it’s a necessity or a splurge, sometimes saving up for what you want can be tough, especially if you don’t come from a culture of savers. I had the chance to recently check out a new film that aims to reverse that trend. Generation One: The Search for Black Wealth is the latest documentary by Lamar and Ronnie Tyler, creators of the Black and Married with Kids website. The film tackles a subject many of us often find taboo to talk about in public: MONEY! Specifically,…

    Britney Spears is not here for Iggy Azalea’s shenanigans. Miss “Toxic” tossed a glittery bag full of shade at the Aussie rapper after Iggy not-so-subtly accused the singer (insert finger quotes) of not doing enough to promote their duet, “Pretty Girls.” In a Twitter back and forth with her fans (do I need more finger quotes here?), the rapper (insert another set of finger quotes) said there wasn’t enough of a push for the song. Oh, but she went even further. I’m sure the Igster has a point and all, but that didn’t stop Britney from getting on…

Is it just me or do we sometimes hear something and not quite fully understand the meaning, until later. And even when we think we understand the meaning, something else may happen even later, and the words become even more meaningful. That’s the beauty of words – they can be multi-faceted.

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…

Turns out that many advisors are burying fee sharing arrangements in their disclosure documents, many of which require a team of attorneys to decipher. Bottom line: follow the money. Even independent and supposedly objective financial advisors could be receiving compensation for recommending some investments vs. others. Even though many of my clients’ accounts are at Fidelity, I DO NOT partake in this practice. If you’d…

    Photo Credit: 3804989772/”>mike_dooley via Compfight cc I’ll never know what people must have thought at the time, but my eyes were bloodshot for four days straight. This was in 1993. My best friend Joe and I piled all our camping, backpacking and rock climbing equipment into the back of my Jeep Wrangler and drove due west along I-40 on our way to Colorado. For our initial push to the west, we slept in shifts and drove pretty much non-stop except to refuel the Jeep and ourselves along the way. But this isn’t why my eyes were bloodshot for four days. During our 2 week…

    Paris To Go

  • Gluten-Free France

    24 Jul 2015 | 5:11 am
    France is a fairly hospitable country for gluten-free travelers. On a scale of Italy, where I could eat cheese-less pizzas, vegan tiramisu, and fresh pasta in every city, to Mongolia- all dairy, mutton, and wheat dumplings- France doesn't fall far behind the US. Every grocery store carries gluten-free cookies and pasta. Cross-contamination is more a problem in Paris than elsewhere, but with so many dedicated restaurants, you don't need to risk it. Here are a few gluten-free (and zero-waste) restaurants and hotels we enjoyed inother French cities. This isn't an exhaustive list, only the…

My dream interior is filled with kittens and pastels, whereas the Nomos crowd favors exposed brick, concrete, and Monsieur Chat. Even before the restaurant opened, it was clear I was overdressed and under-tattooed. This is not the kind of place where people wear color, or supportive lingerie.

If you do, and it inspires you and makes you happy, that's great! Me, it just made me feel anxious, like nothing I already had was good enough, like I needed more- when, in reality, I didn't need anything new at all. For me, love at first sight is usually more successful than a cold, analytical approach. Sensible purchases, made to fill some assessed wardrobe hole, rarely ever last more than a…

It's healthier, too, with everyone from the CDC and the FDA to Scientific American warning against the dangers of so-called "antibacterial" products. For instance, triclosan (detectable in blood and breast milk) kills human cells, bioaccumulates in fat, resists antibiotics and is linked to increased occurrence of certain illnesses in children. Far better to remove germs mechanically with simple soap and water.I always preferred vegan…

For people aged 35 to 54, financial disputes outstrip rows over chores, relatives, children, sex, going out and past partners. For couples of all ages, money is the second most common cause of fights, topped only by disagreements over cleanliness and tidiness.

They are reaching an age at which it is tempting to slow down a bit – but post-menopausal women may have to do more exercise than others to stay healthy. Scientists recommend that women aged 50-plus do five hours of exercise a week to keep breast cancer at bay. Most cases of the cancer occur in older women and after menopause, fat cells are a particularly rich source of the hormones that feed the disease.

They tend to be a long protrusion of skin, small in diameter, though it can be as large as a half an inch or more in diameter. That is rare. They are usually found in areas of the body where there are folds or creases in the skin. These are usually caused by friction within these folds and creases.

    Lately there has been a movement occurring when it comes to marriage.

It’s definitely not something you hear about every day; however, slowly this movement is making its way to possibly becoming the social norm.
