Yeah, can you send a bit of the defense budget over to places like UCLA so that we’re not having to sit on the floor in our computer science classrooms of 300+ students because there’s not enough money to hire more professors?
General Motors’ Senior Vice President Mary Barra has been chosen as the next CEO of the auto giant, becoming the first female executive to hold the top spot in the history of the global automotive industry. Barra has been a GM employee for more than three decades, rising from intern to head of product development during that time, and will officially replace current CEO Dan Akerson next month.

Pour paraphraser James Joyce, arpenter New York sans croiser un pub irlandais relèverait de la gageure. Chaque année, à la date du 16 juin, je m’installe devant le pub Ulysses sur Pearl Street, la plus ancienne rue pavée de Manhattan, en compagnie de centaines d’inconditionnels de Joyce, et nous lisons à tour de rôle des extraits du roman le plus génial du xxe siècle. A un jet de pierre du district financier, l’événement crée pas mal de désordre. Mon moment préféré est la lecture des passages érotiques, amplifiée par le micro : on a l’impression que tout Wall Street nous prête une oreille complice et ravie.
Lauren, you make the most mundane activities around us look complex.
The husbands often feel excluded from the social infrastructure that women have built up over generations to make stay-at-home life more manageable and fun. (“You want awkward? Try a swim play date,” one father said.) Every man interviewed said that many school notices, invitations and Girl Scout troop updates were still sent to their wives, a river they are constantly trying to divert.
I do think that women take nasty or sexist comments harder than men. I don’t think that’s a flaw; I think that generally women understand the motivations behind those negative comments better than men do and react accordingly. I think that women as a whole need to find ways to push past that understanding and NOT QUIT.
Also, before the video was a commercial for "Poo-pourri". It’s the first time I have EVER not clicked on “skip this ad” after the requisite 3-second watch. It’s like one of the best Saturday Night Live fake-commercials ever, except that the product seems to be real. (I’m still convinced that it’s not real and that all the Amazon commentors are part of this fake company. The commercial is too good to be a real commercial. The Amazon comments are too good to be real comments.)
