Are you contributing to the levels of gratitude at your workplace? Or are you a team member who is enabling a company culture of entitlement? Harvard Business Review has some powerful ideas on how we each can act to reshape the level of office happiness. Even if you're not a manager or CEO, you can still see yourself as a thought leader and influential employee. =)
“Thank you” is only the start. You have to make employees feel appreciated in order to get their best work.

This was an interesting read, i imagine it's a divisive set of opinions.

Not that much different here in France, except that it's not really color orientated here, more religious orientated.

Throughout the city we make fun of these sensationalist "Baltimore burned" headlines. As the president of the company at work said, if we hasn't seen it on the news most of us wouldn't have known anything unusual happened. We've all received terrified calls from our out of town friends, family and work associate, terrorized by the media coverage.

The class issues here are important and yet they are overshadowed by the hyperbole. I read an interview with researcher Brene Brown and Oprah where she talks about studying the change in fear in our society since 9/11. Perhaps this is part of that aspect of modern culture. If you didn't question the way the news outlets reports events, question it now. Many headlines and stories are simply not true, many others are at least exaggerated 
The city has a long history of bloodshed. And it’s only gotten worse since the recent upheaval.

Two, I watched Veep last night and since forever. Never even noticed Amy was the girl from My Girl!!!
Child stars often leave the entertainment business after spending their childhood in the spotlight, and we forget about them.

"Predecisions" I'm a huge planner. Make a plans that work and stick with it for as long as it works. I know I'm gonna go to the gym, pay the bills, do the hobbies, then relax relax relax =)

"Committing to a specific plan for a goal frees up cognitive resources for our other pursuits. So, in addition to helping us be more successful with the specific goal we're planning, planning lets us get on with other stuff too."

If you work second shift or just want a late night snack, its one of the few places in towson that's open that isn't fast food. It's a great idea for those times with a lot of variety. They are open 24 hours. Towson has a lot of better options for fine dining but this isn't meant to be that.
