“Before we can teach a kid how to academically excel in school, we need to teach him how to have stillness, pay attention, stay on task, regulate, make good choices,” said Larochette. “We tell kids be quiet, calm yourself down, be still. We tell them all these things they need in the classroom, but we’re not teaching them how to do that.”

"If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a pay rise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration."
The author argues that in the new economy, it's people, not skills or majors, that have lost value.

Great line:

We live in the tunnel at the end of the light.

I'm curious if you're personally finding this to be true.

"As a public health issue, family planning is almost as clear a case of cause and effect as any sentient being could ask for. Less money for family planning providers means fewer family planning providers serving fewer low-income clients who will receive less, and less frequently affordable, birth control and pap smears. Which means more unplanned pregnancy and more undiagnosed cancers, leading to more Medicaid-funded births, a higher demand for abortion, and, when cancer goes undiagnosed, more terminal illness.

I know these things are beyond obvious. Even writing them out this way approaches downright absurdity. But I think these things need to be laid out, if we are to understand the almost unimaginable cruelty and selfishness of the Texas legislators who deliberately engineered the destruction of the family planning safety net in our state."

"This choice goes for many facts about a person besides an interest in beauty products and celebrities. As much as we might hope it won’t affect whether people see us positively or negatively, expression of interests or beliefs does shape how people see us. It’s not realistic or fair to expect a person to appear completely inoffensive and bland – especially since different people are offended by different things. So how can someone in the workplace balance being her or his authentic self with the awareness of how it could affect workplace perception?"
Especially in the workplace, it often seems like people assume there's a gap between being girly and being serious. Steve Carell articulates that divide clearly in this quote about Mindy Kaling: “Mindy is exceptionally smart, but is not afraid to talk about nail polish,” Carell said. ”And yet, her love of nail polish does not take away from her smartness.” There is nothing inherently dumb about being girly, or liking nail polish. So why does Care...
