The art of story telling. Chipotle releases a short film and ad for their new scarecrow app game which educates the public about food issues. So well done (and feels slightly Tim Burton-esque).

They call that Franken food you should try to only eat grass fed beef and free range chicken raised on organic feed fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season from your farmers market or local natural food store . I prefer to plant my own garden it provides more produce then you would expect to eat and cost only a fraction of what you actually spend at the store.

Sometimes, I get questions about why I would choose to attend an all-female school. Forbes explains it perfectly here.

"By attending a women’s college, females are driven to tackle traditionally male-dominated areas in academics and clubs... Choosing to attend a women’s school is the opposite of “comfortable” because it challenges students to step outside of gender norms and engage in new leadership roles."

Well, it makes sense given women were the ones who picked up the slack during WWI.

The headlining news on the NYTimes is causing quite a kerfuffle over at HBS. In fact, Kathleen McGinn (quoted in the NYTimes article) later expressed her reaction to the article in a letter to the HBS doctoral students: "It doesn’t tell the complete story – HBS is much more multifaceted than the author conveys. But it does tell part of the story – HBS is working to eliminate the historical gender grade gap, and the gap is nearly gone; HBS is working to improve the culture in our community, through new classes such as FIELD and by aggressively promoting norms and behaviors that foster cooperation and respect. Perhaps the biggest omission in the story, from my perspective, is that it fails to tell how the MBAs themselves demanded change and led the charge, how a few women MBAs exposed the inequities, analyzed their root causes, and presented their recommendations to the school’s administrators. Those recommendations sowed the seeds for many of the changes discussed in the article."

Now that DOMA has been struck down, let's look back at the struggle for gay marriage. How did an "illness" become an 'identity"?
