Concerns about the rise in anxiety, depression, or other mental illness in today's youth -- "Trapped in this swirl of hyper-achievement and pressure, they are missing one critical piece: They simply don’t know yet how to fail. They have been so focused on getting it right, winning to set themselves up for a good life, that no one has explained that it’s OK to go back to the drawing board and start fresh, to scrap everything and try again. That in some ways, doing that sooner than later is itself a gift."

Suicide is tragic enough, but it’s particularly bewildering when young people who appear to have it all take their own lives. But recent research into the national increase in suicide among those aged 15 to 24 finds a unique intersection that exacerbates the burden on those prone to mental illness—enormous pressure to be perfect, combined with seemingly having it all going for you, combined with feeling exactly the opposite inside.

Loved being a Girl Scout for these reasons. Also, learned a lot from project-based work toward badges and awards.

Inflection recently had the honor of hosting the 92nd Bay Area Girl Geek dinner. More than 150 Girl Geeks attended the event, held at Devil’s Canyon Brewery in San Carlos, to network and share ideas and expertise. It was a great night full of food, drinks, networking, and an amazing discussion with an accomplished Inflection panel.

The shakshuka hooked us in the fall, and now epic brunch items are calling us back to Barkada. The Fifth Quarter corned beef with organic eggs on the best English muffin you've ever had is a wonderful consolation prize when tomatoes are not in season for shakshuka. Five stars.

People are really great here - they make donating blood quick and easy. The only thing is that their Saturday hours end really early - at 2:30pm - so get in early!

The food is California cuisine - exemplary! The tablecloth/napkins are adorable, and the decor of the restaurant is so curious that restaurant-industry insiders that there are always people poring over the detail of the decor. The drinks are wonderful and the outdoor patio is beautiful.

What Farmers Market is to Iceland is what Anthropologie is to the United States. Farmers Market boasts iconic Icelandic style and design. Great stylings scattered around an atmospheric store in the old harbor of Reykjavik. My sister loves their pants, and I love the dresses and knit hats by Farmers Market.

Check out the current exhibits. This place has great art from Gursky to Lewis Carroll. The rooftop cafe is the best - try the Mondrian cake and the other artsy snacks. I only wish the creepy bug sculptures would disappear from the roof. Going to the cafe requires museum admission, however.

There is only one other Pinkberry in the San Francisco Bay Area - it is by Macy's. So I was so happy to find this Pinkberry in the Virgin America terminal 2 at SFO Airport. The texture and flavor is wonderful, per Pinkberry standards. The location is killer (next to Plant Cafe).
