Everyone wins when men lean in for equality. Children are happier and healthier. Marriages are stronger. Teams and companies produce better results. Men, show the world you're for equality. Women, celebrate men leaning in.

Some book has already been written to provide a different set of advices that working women of this generation need to know.

Here is the interview of the authors on NPR.

With the approval, the consumer gene sequencing company is well on its way back into the good favor of the regulator, after being forced to remove earlier tests from the market.

Thanks to Amos for sharing. This is cool. What do you think that will be the killer app of this sort of chemical fingerprint?

This finding is consistent with the previous finding that suggests that women need a new set of advices in the business world. Although the study is done based on the data from financial industry, the same can be said to many other industries. 

Thanks to HBR for summarizing the current status of research in this issue. This can start helping people to understand the issues of women in corporation world. Sometimes it is not that women don't play the game, but rather, playing the game does not help women to succeed. We need a new perspective and, better, a new set of rules set for the measure of success.  

Some interesting research that was cited:
1. men are more likely to help men: Male analysts with a tie to a male executive saw their own accuracy rise by 4.7%, while a female analyst with a tie to a female executive at a firm she was covering saw her accuracy rise by 2.5%.
2. 35% of the women in their sample had attended an Ivy League school as opposed to only 25% of the men. 25% of the women and 16% of the men held an MBA from a top-ten business school. This could suggest that women need to have more advantages to even get into finance in the first place.
3. for women, the long climb is over 50% longer than for their male peers. Moreover, 71% of the female CEOs were promoted as long-term insiders versus only 48% of the male CEOs. This doesn’t leave a lot of time for hopscotch early in women’s careers.

4. women are much less likely to ask for raises than are men.  

5. when women do ask for more, they’re penalized for it. Simply asking for more, like a man would, is simply not a good strategy for a woman seeking to increase her earning power.

6. women have, in fact, a more accurate view of our abilities than men do, and that overconfidence is much more of a problem for men than underconfidence is for women.

Although the last two paragraphs may be an overstatement, this outcry also speaks for the need for the issues to be accounted for. 

---------
"To me, the upshot of all of this research is increasingly clear: we need to stop telling women to follow a male playbook. It doesn’t work for women. And I would argue that it doesn’t work that well for companies, either. Raises should go to the people who bring their firms the most value — not those who are simply better at, and less penalized for, asking for them. Promotions ought to be handed out according to who is the smartest and most capable, not according to who appears the most confident. And although there are benefits to social capital, as Fang and Huang’s study makes clear, rewarding the people with the chummiest network simply creates a self-fulfilling cycle."

"Consider that in Fang and Huang’s study, they did not find that the men were more likely to be promoted than the women. No — only that men were more likely to be promoted on the basis of social capital, while women were more likely to be recognized for “documentable and measurable competence.” Promoting someone based on measurable competence! What a wild idea. We should try it sometime."

"This is also not the first study to show that there are aspects of the standard (eg, male) playbook that don’t seem to work for women. "

Thanks to Dorothy for sharing. 

Moser has a different type of Tiger mom. 

"But her mother, who once dreamed of being a doctor, wants better for her daughter. She insists the girl study hard. She reads her fairy tales in which heroes overcome poverty with their smarts. “We are born naked, and we're going to die naked, so don't care about material things,” she tells her daughter. Instead, follow your passion."

And she learns to become addicted to science herself..

"You have talked about being singularly focused on your scientific endeavors. Do you worry about work-life balance? Or is your professional work of such great interest that the balance comes naturally?

I think that is exactly the idea. I've always been extremely curious; to understand things, to know more about things, that feels so good. If you feel good about something, you do more of it, then you are addicted."

And with this, you can develop your own ideas of chemical fingerprint into a product. 
Si-Ware (Cairo, Egypt) has created the world's first microelectromechanical system (MEMS) spectrometer chip, which it sells in a handheld module under the Neospectra brand name.

First-hand experience shared by Murray himself. 
 
18 years ago today Garry Kasparov took on Deep Blue and won. But a little over a year later, Big Blue's 0s and 1s defeated the grandmaster's brain, a decades-long goal of computer programmers. In this video members of the Deep Blue team discuss the work that went into developing the computer behind this grand display of machine intelligence.
Not long ago, the idea of a computer beating a human at chess was the stuff of science fiction. But some of the most creative programmers of the 1980s and ’90s were determined to make it a reality. And they did. In two matches that riveted the world, Deep Blue,... [read more]

Initially we thought this would be a useful service for us given our busy lifestyle. However, their customer service has completely turned us off. When we scheduled it, we provided cleaning instruction and added extra service for interior window cleaning. However, when the cleaning professional came on the day, no instructions seemed to have been given to the professional beforehand. She did not do what was asked of her. Since we were not home during the cleaning session, we did not learn about this till we went back home. The professional has already left, and when we contacted the customer service, their response was just pretty bad. They did not care all the evidence we have presented and concluded on their part that the service has been provided. Clearly, it has not been the case for us! If a service provider cannot communicate instructions to the cleaning professionals clearly, please don't offer the illusion that you can.

The food tastes nothing like Malaysian food, but rather a hk cuisine in disguise. Not a decent one either. Very disappointed.
