If I were to speak at a commencement for just business school students with a concentration in marketing, this is probably what I’d say. Dear marketing class of 2014, I congratulate you on reaching the end of your formal education (for now) in marketing. I have good news and bad news for you. Like a [...]

YouTubers get to sit down with the President to talk about healthcare. It's so important as a self-employed person to be able to take care of the health of your family.

Not to mention that a YTer that does impressions of the President got to do the impression for the President.

Absolutely worth a watch... #BringBackOurGirls
New York City, NY -- This Tuesday, May 6th at 12pm EST, Girl Rising and Amy Poehler's Smart Girls initiative will be co-organizing a "Call to Action" Google Hangout in response to the abducted Nigerian school girls.

What's happening in Nigeria?

Tuesday marks three weeks since dozens of gunmen stormed the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Nigeria and abducted more than 200 girls who were asleep in their dormitories. Even as global media coverage grows, so do the fears of the families and communities of the missing girls.


With every passing day, the crisis intensifies: where are these girls and what will it take to bring them home? Mounting outrage around the world is matched by an escalating desire to do something  anything  to bring these girls to safety and their captors to justice.

Inspired by the passion of our community, Girl Rising and Smart Girls will co-host an open forum: a meeting of experts, organizers and passionate global citizens to discuss what's happening and what we can do to help.

To that end, we'll also be sharing an "action pack" of tools so anyone can raise visibility about the unfolding situation -- and help build the momentum needed to get these girls home.

Go to or for more information.

Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls is a rapidly expanding online network and community movement whose aim is to help young women and the young at heart with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

Girl Rising is a feature film and a global action campaign for girls’ education that uses the power of storytelling to spread the message that educating girls can transform societies.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Thank you +Amy Vernon for sharing this. It is really important to read. This ALL needs to change. If you see it, call that garbage on the carpet.

I'd just like to add that not all 'women in tech' are coders. I was a network engineer for over a decade. I currently work in MarTech. By today's definition I "don't qualify" as tech but I'm every bit affected and infuriated by what is going on in this industry.

 Well, to directly answer your question: men and women are peers. I suppose the part you didn't understand was that women who chant special treatment because they're women isn't "feminism" nor do these women see man and woman as peers, but in fact, it's these misguided women that have taken the definition of feminism, to mean women should have the right to be unaccountable, irresponsible and presumably incapable of contributing to the grand scheme of things because they're women.

Feminism evolved from women whom sought out making that difference in declaration to men: don't treat me different; I'm your peer and I can contribute.

The Real Life Effect of Cyber Bullying

I want to talk about something so serious and dangerous that it pains me to know that this stuff happens 'in real life.' Christine is a blogger friend of mine (same awesome last name but no relation) and has been battling a cyber bully targeting her daughter since February of this year.

This isn't some random Internet stranger flinging around hate on Twitter. It's another *GIRL* in Christine's daughter's class and she's driven this family to the brink of a breakdown.

Repeated death threats. Stalking in real life. Hacking computers and phones. Eavesdropping. Threats of suicide. What pre/teen girl (and her family) deserve this kind of life? I cannot even imagine the life they have been living since this started.

Their local police are useless. The FBI shrugs their shoulders. Their school system is useless. Why does the legal system fail our own children? Zero tolerance school policies that suspend Kindergarten children for playing too roughly during recess, but repeated death threats get a blind eye?

This family lives in the greater Austin, TX USA area. I know they are trying to get their story on the news to put some pressure on the law enforcement to take the repeated death threats to their daughter (and her friends) seriously. News stations & police in the area... +myfoxaustin +KVUE Austin +KEYE TV +KXAN TV

I pray that this family finds peace and the bully finds help and the MOTHER and step-father that have been enabling her daughter to actively be a bully finds a jail cell quite chilling.

The Harry Packer Mansion was referred to my husband and I by a friend and we couldn't be more pleased with the time we had! Do not hesitate to call them right now and book a weekend stay. There doesn't seem to be a 'bad' time of year to go! We stayed in a Carriage House guest room (there was only one room left as we decided last minute we needed a getaway) and it was surprisingly new and well appointed. My husband and I had ever stayed at a B&B once before and were left 'eh' on the experience. The Harry Packer seems to fit more of an inn feel (each room with their own bathroom for example) and may have raised the bar on expectations of other establishments! No televisions - GOOD! - because a weekend getaway isn't meant to sit holed up in a room watching the same shows I could see at home. Spending time at the Harry Packer is an invitation to detach from our everyday lives (but hey - there is WiFi in both the main house and the Carriage house so we did stay on top of work obligations). Arriving in the nick of time on Friday night for the Murder Mystery experience, my husband and I were warmly greeted by one of the owners, Bob, and quickly served a drink from the Libations Lounge operated by the owner's son Taylor and his wife Kristin. Along with four other couples, my husband and I were expertly guided through a great mix of historical people and facts and a nice touch of fiction to create a very well written story. Over the course of Friday night, Saturday morning after breakfast, and Saturday night before/after dinner we weaved ours own ad-lib stories in with the "Inspector Bob"s tale of family money and murder. Turns out I wasn't the murder - whew! - but no spoilers here! I hear the story is a bit different each time. Walking around Jim Thorpe we ran into many other couples that were eager to chat up the local food scene and most had already been to the Harry Packer to stay and highly recommended it (without knowing we were already booked there). The visitors and town alike seem to love the effort and care that Bob, his wife Pat, their son Taylor and his wife Kristen put into the property. Most people we bumped into had done the Murder Mystery and were eager to chat about plot differences (AFTER they made sure we were done with the experience). I can tell you that my husband and I WILL be returning to Jim Thorpe and staying at the Harry Packer Mansion again. It is ALL because of the hospitality that the Handwerk family has to their guests. NOTE - When in Jim Thorpe be sure to take the Asa Packer Mansion tour next door (but AFTER you finish the Murder Mystery), eat at Crave, Broadway Grill (get the cheese plate oh my!), Molly Maguire's and shop up and down Race and Broadway.

Ancient Arts Healing Center is my go-to place for a bit of pampering after hours of sitting at a computer desk! The environment is relaxing, the staff wonderful and the owner Tamara is very knowledgeable. My favorite thing about getting a massage at Ancient Arts Healing Center is that they are very attuned to any needs you might have at that moment during a massage and work through it. I wouldn't go any place else for a massage!

I've been getting my nails done for 20 years & have been going to Prestige since they opened. Their prices are average for the area (and less than what most spas charge) and I've never had a bad experience. If you want relaxing, go to a day spa, this nail salon is in a mall next to a grocery store. If you want quality work and don't have time to sit around all day - go to Prestige.
