Great article on compensation in merit-based environments.
I’m here to demystify how employees of established tech companies should ask for raises.

People say they would opt for less care if they had more knowledge of benefits and harms, studies show.

To get 3- to 6-year-olds to help with a task, rather than inviting them “to help,” it was 22 to 29 percent more effective to encourage them to “be a helper.”
The tactics are different from those used for encouraging achievement.

Actually, there are worse things than a good night’s sleep with a child who loves and needs you by your side.

I'd go into withdrawal if my kids don't sleep with me any more :)

Google went public 10 years ago on August 19, 2004 at $85 a share with a market cap of $23 billion. A look at how far the company has come. http://on.wsj.com/1w4G9Cm

Absolutely delicious, fresh food. Breakfast served till mid-afternoon. Toys & crayons for babies. Great service though our food came out at slightly staggered times. Highly recommended.

A wonderful b&b, highly recommended. Beautifully decorated and attention to every detail. The owners are friendly and welcoming, and cook up a multi-course breakfast complete with homemade smoothies. Our room (Toves) had a private garden and 2-person jacuzzi. They have wine, snacks, milk and cookies every evening, and are within walking distance to central Monterey and the sea. The Alice in Wonderland theme lends a whimsical flair to rooms and common areas alike.

Awesome butter chicken, dessert not so great (we had creme brulee). Naan was excellent, as was the chaat. Also delicious rogan josht. Would have given it 5 stars without the dessert... A little pricey.

Used to be a Naan & Curry. You need to know what to order (my fave is muttar paneer; bhindhi is variable but usually awesome). Dishes are around $6 each. Free chai. Overall - amazing value, great family place.
