So...let me get this straight. Parents buy their kids toys that aren't even meant for kids and they do something stupid (as kids do) and that's cause for banning the product? But assault riffles are legal. We sure have got our priorities straight.

So, here is a reality check: Marissa Mayer (like me) is not likely to emerge as a role model for everyday working parenthood. Her experience will in no way mirror the vast majority of mothers and fathers struggling to make ends meet and raise healthy, responsible kids. Sure, she will face the near daily Hobson’s choices that torture all working parents, like deciding between an important investor meeting and the school play. But barring the weeks directly after giving birth, a woman with a family in a powerful position like Mayer's doesn’t have it that much tougher than a man in a similar position precisely because she’s in that position. The job comes with significant resources will help make the day-to-day details, as well as life’s tougher challenges, well, less tough. And I begrudge her none of it--in fact I celebrate her success. It’s a positive step forward in a time when only 5% of American CEOs are women. That fact, not Mayer’s pregnancy and how she deals with maternity leave, is a bellwether.

_Between 2001 and 2007, some 40,000 U.S. factories closed, eliminating millions of jobs. While Walmart's ceaseless search for lower costs wasn't the only factor that drove production overseas, it was a major one. During these six years, Walmart's imports from China tripled in value from $9 billion to $27 billion.

Small, family-owned retail businesses likewise closed in droves as Walmart grew. Between 1992 and 2007, the number of independent retailers fell by over 60,000, according to the U.S. Census.

Their demise triggered a cascade of losses elsewhere. As communities lost their local retailers, there was less demand for services like accounting and graphic design, less advertising revenue for local media outlets, and fewer accounts for local banks. As Walmart moved into communities, the volume of money circulating from business to business declined. More dollars flowed into Walmart's tills and out of the local economy._

There was a time when covering content with boxes (surveys, subscription offers, ads, etc.) was a no-no. Somehow it's become standard practice. To me, this means that content consumers were complicit in making this standard practice. What pisses me off most is that neither adblocker, nor pop-up blockers prevent these pop-ups and usually don't even have time to read the content before there's a pop-up in my face asking me for something. Let me read the content. That's what I'm there for. And if I followed a link from my feedreader, you most certainly don't have to ask me to subscribe ever. single. time. I land on the site. /rant

Anyone else hate this practice by #content sites?

I don't even understand why this is still a debate. Only in modern journalism do we consider journalism only that which comes out of a professional news room. However, journalism is really defined as the gathering and reporting of news. The medium is neither here nor there. Sure professional journalists may adhere to a set of agreed upon standards of ethics, but it's not like journalism comes with licensing.

Now, the ethics ofwatching someone die or get beaten brutally in the name of capturing events, that's another debate altogether.
