Study restores link between tattoos and anger - People who have tattoos report higher levels of verbal aggression and reactive rebelliousness – and the more tattoos they have, the angrier they are When it emerged that Samantha Cameron, the wife of the prime minister, had an image of a dolphin etched on her ankle, it seemed the link between tattoos, aggression and rebellion had been well and truly severed. But research has found that people with tattoos report higher levels of verbal aggress...

Changing the way liberal arts college alumni network with each other -- more powerful than MBA programs  

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/changing-way-liberal-arts-college-alumni-network-each-mark-sanor


Whether you went to Bucknell, Williams or our arch-rival Kenyon, you experienced a great liberal arts education, but you might not have always experienced the best that your alumni network had to offer.

The MBA programs tout their networks as a prime reason for spending the $100k and two years of your life in business school. Ironically, fellow liberal arts graduates share deeper common bonds, and are more prone to help each other, but lack the depth/breadth of the systematic networks of the MBA programs. Yet with all of the career pivots we will have, we all can use mentors along the way, or someone to open a door or just open our eyes.

We are changing that rather dramatically, at least starting with one liberal arts college and this should light a fire for other colleges of our ilk.

Our platform started with a 10-year history of a networking event in New York that grew to close to 200 participants in New York this summer. It then expanded to a "world tour" of several cities where we are nearing 1500 alumni participants in 11 cities. This world tour now comes to London on Saturday, November 14, with alumni from over 14 countries. Next year with 20 cities targeted including in Asia, Africa and Latin America, we expect over 5,000 alumni participants.

At each event, we have a panel of interesting alumni telling their stories with Q&A, but the "Breakout Groups" (by industry cluster) are the core part of the program where everyone introduces themselves, and answers two questions: how can I help the network, and how can the network help me. The last question is what we emphasize in particular, and leads to the most interesting and practical take-aways from these events.

Beyond the "world tour", we are forming Global Interest Groups (GIGs), uniting alumni along the same industry clusters of the Breakout Groups.

I founded this now global platform partly to pay homage to a dear mentor from Denison who passed away a few years ago. After launching it, I have seen it take off like a fire, which I believe comes back to the bonds created in a smaller liberal arts college where professors not only know your name but become your friends.

For fellow liberal arts grads around the world, I'd be happy to share more on our platform. If you happen to be in London, come join us for the "after party" on Saturday evening.

For fellow Denisonians around the world, come join us for the main event: https://denisoneverywhere.com/events/18848545507/

In DC for a conference and scouted this place out of others. It was loud but not crowded though all tables were reserved. ?? So my dinner companion and I ordered to go. I ordered the trio tacos (steak, shrimp, chicken). She ordered mahi mahi tacos. Generous portions I got all chicken tacos - not what I ordered . The beans and the rice had cheese on them. Ick! My shells were stale. The staff were friendly. Chips and,guac were good
