A New Voice

By - Last updated: Monday, December 12, 2011

I have been reading Leah Eichler’s column Women@Work in the Globe since she began writing them in September 2011. She is a new and very welcome voice in the paper and I have enjoyed reading many of her columns. They are well written and well researched and cover many of the topics near and dear to my heart. For example:   On  October 1, 2011 Leah wrote a column “Why we need the metrics on women’s climb to the top” which included several great comments from Barbara Annis of Barbara Annis & Associates in New York, Beatrix Dart of the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management and Deborah Gillis of Catalyst. I wont’ repeat these comments here because it would cause ...

Absolute Delight

By - Last updated: Monday, November 21, 2011

On Saturday morning, I picked up the weekend edition of the Globe and was absolutely delighted to see the face of a woman occupying all of the space above the fold and these words: "Alberta wants back in Praising Ontario. Reaching out to Quebec. Charming Americans. Criticizing Harper (a bit). Is this how an Alberta premier acts? Yes, if you're Alison Redford. This week she set out to rewrite the national agenda. And it's not just about energy." The headline inside the paper read: "Pushing Alberta toward its potential Newly minted Premier's style is consensus-building, with a firm eye on her oil-rich province's place in the wider Canadian debate"  These few words gave me hope about what is possible in ...

Daily Law of Attraction Quotation

I have subscribed to the Daily Law of Attraction Quotation at www.abraham-hicks.com. The quotation below really resonated with me. Perhaps, it was a message I needed to hear. Regardless, I thought I would share it with you and share the site with you. It is more woo-woo than most of the things I share with you, so consider yourself warned!!   "You're always getting a perfect vibrational match to what you predominantly give your attention to. But you've got to make the best of it. You've got to vibrate slightly different from where you are if you are going to improve where you are.  You can't keep taking score of where your business is or your relationship is or your body is ...

The End of Men

By - Last updated: Thursday, September 22, 2011

A friend sent me a link to an article from the July/August 2010 issue of the Atlantic which I have included here.  http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2010/07/the-end-of-men/8135/#.TnDrdmyAiB0.email   She said: "This will blow you away."  She was correct. In fact, I found the article very credible and deeply disturbing in terms of what it portends for society.   I encourage you to read it in its entirety and I would be delighted if you shared your thoughts about it in the Comments section below.
