Why Do Women Hate Each Other?

14Nov

For the first time in my 50 years on this earth, I have started to doubt that I will see a woman president in my lifetime. There I said it. I have had to wrestle with, and accept a fact so foreign and unexplainable to me: a lot of women seem to have an innate bias against other women

I wrote the following this morning and now comes word tonight that Leonard Cohen, one of the greatest writers of our time (poet, novelist, songwriter) has died at the age of 82. “Give me back the Berlin Wall.” Of course, Leonard Cohen, who at the age of 82 has just released one of his greatest and most popular albums, You Want It Darker , didn’t really mean that, a quarter-century ago. He sang in the guise of the unreliable narrator in his classic, and scary, song “The Future.” Other Cohen lyrics from that little ditty, written just after the 1989 fall of the Wall, call for the return of Stalin, more people to torture, and another Hiroshima, among other horrors.

A common question I get is “How do I get a bank loan to fund my startup?” The default answer is that it probably won’t happen, because most banks just don’t make bank loans to startups.

In the Ending…

28Oct

According to the bi-annual study by the London Zoological Society and the World Wildlife Fund, global wildlife populations have declined by 58% since 1970.  Freshwater environments, lakes and streams and their surroundings, says the report, are the most grievously damaged, with on average 81% of their 1970-level non-human animal life now missing. Methodological critiques of the report – deeming its authors to have mashed vast and variegated data excessively into too few signal numbers – abound. But no serious biologist denies that we are in the midst of an enormous extinction event.  “Event” is the proper term, although not all mass extinctions happen with one great bang, of the Asteroid-Dinosaur variety.  For perspective, the rebounding of new life after a mass extinction takes millions of years.  On that scale, the demise happening right now all around us is horrifically sudden

One of the most persistent problems facing American higher education is how best to explain its importance and endearing value to the public.

With the recent airport attack and the host of attacks that had occurred over the preceding months, I was a bit uneasy and a lot more aware of my surroundings. While waiting for my flight at Logan Airport, I kept hearing announcements about a security awareness program called SAFE (Security Awareness for Everyone), which urges passengers to report any suspicious behavior.
