+Sallie Alys Montuori a bit more subtle than that, but basically yes.

As we didn't have anything like minimum wage before that it's now better than it was, so in a sense it's good and I hope that with time it will get better.

When the kids are little, it’s all about taking care of them and giving them everything they need to thrive and be happy. But then when they get older it’s time for parents to start having some fun…and maybe at their kids’ expense. It’s OK —...

Reminds me of the time my kids were acting up in IKEA, so I laid down on the floor, flailed my arms and legs like I was throwing a temper tantrum, then got up again like nothing was wrong. If  they could have died from embarrassment right then and there, they might have. That shut them up real quick. Not a peep out of them the rest of the evening.

Warning: if your comment attacks the character, gender, sexuality, or the mental or physical attributes of another person, I will remove your ability to comment on my posts.

This has nothing to do with impeding freedom of speech, because I am not a government entity. It is curating, which I am perfectly in my rights to do.

As summarized by the author, this is how Anita Sarkeesian plans to Ruin All Video Games Forever:

"1. Avoid the Smurfette principle (don't have just one female character in an ensemble cast, let alone one whose personality is more or less "girl" or "woman.")

2. "Lingerie is not armor" (Dress female characters as something other than sex objects.)

3. Have female characters of various body types

4. Don't over-emphasize female characters' rear ends, not any more than you would the average male character's.

5. Include more female characters of color.

6. Animate female characters to move the way normal women, soldiers or athletes would move.

7. Record female character voiceover so that pain sounds painful, not orgasmic

8. Include female enemies, but don't sexualize those enemies"


...seriously, how are these suggestions even controversial?
Minutes after I walked through a metal detector--and some time before she was flocked by well-wishers at the best-attended gaming lecture I've ever been to at New York University--I recently listened to the media critic Anita Sarkeesian describe eight things she'd like to see changed in video games.

Thank you, I couldn't remember the name of the test when I wrote my comments. I have been a big proponent of equality in dialogue for a long time.

You’d have to live in a cave to not have heard about the health benefits of olive oil. It’s a monounsaturated fat that is a major component of the Mediterranean diet and is believed to be a factor why people in that area of the world are some of the healthiest and long-lived. Olive oil has been used medicinally for over 5,000 years. Its health benefits are legendary. It has been found to boost the immune system, increase bone density, prevent can...

Color me skeptical about Pompeian, which didn't do well in the 2010 report; none of the three samples  tested rated EV.  In the 2011 report, 94% of Pompeian samples tested failed the quality test for EV based on International Olive Council standards.

The NAOOA is a trade association, not an independent quality assessment organization, so it's not surprising they'd certify an important product by one of their member companies.  Pompeian is also an American company, headquartered in Baltimore.  Only domestic companies are considered for the USDA Quality Monitored seal, so none of the overseas companies are eligible for it.

I'd like to know how Trader Joe's 100% Kalamata ranks; that's my current choice.  I've had several of the high-priced local California ones, which are available at most supermarkets locally.  They're excellent; but I cook with olive oil pretty much exclusively due to my husband's family health profile and it's hard to pay those kinds of boutique prices for your basic kitchen oil.  The Kalamata stuff tastes really good to me, and it's affordable.

Sleet in the morning, which turned to snow by the afternoon. Do not want. It's supposed to get really cold tonight.

I think there is a fine line here and in the case of 111 I don't think you could argue it was "bigotry." I also think Oregon is going to have a tough time with the courts - just look at Hobby Lobby. We could argue that they were also practicing bigotry and the Supreme Court sided with them. Running a business is hard. Catering to a niche of the population is even harder.
