Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read:
A working mom's open letter to Gwyneth Paltrow
I really enjoyed your recent comments to E! about how easy an office job is for parents, compared to the grueling circumstances of being on a movie set. “I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening,” you said. “When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day, and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”
As a mother of a toddler, I couldn’t agree more!
The left is waging the real war on women
"...liberal progressives are actually the ones waging a war on women with policies bent on making women — particularly single women — dependent on government. You may be surprised by the brilliance of their agenda."
Huffington Post says friends should have casual, meaningless sex
"In case you’re not hip to liberal-speak, 'friends with benefits' refers to the 'progressive' idea that it’s really cool for friends to use each other for casual, meaningless sex. What could possibly go wrong?"
Dems shouldn't bother arguing with Silver
“Back in 2012, Republicans and many conservative writers weren’t buying Nate Silver’s forecasts about the presidential election. They argued he was exaggerating President Obama’s appeal and some, like me, doubted the New York Times writer’s assumptions about turnout that year resembling that of the 2008 election. As everyone knows, we who differed with Silver were wrong. In fact, we were extremely wrong and those who care to learn from the experience will try not to allow their political opinions or their hopes temper their views of the numbers again. But, this time around it’s the Democrats who are the doubters.”
What they really mean when they cry "racism"
"Racism used to mean hating someone because of his race. No more."
Republicans and Blacks
"The issue on which Democrats are most vulnerable, and have the least room to maneuver, is..."
A case for voter ID
"So, why are they so afraid of voter ID? Maybe because liberals couldn't win elections without rampant voter fraud? Consider: A recent investigation by New York City's Department of Investigations had its undercover agents show up at polls pretending to be people who had moved, were incarcerated or deceased. According to the report, they were allowed to vote 97 percent of the time."
Milwaukee County voters can send a strong message Tuesday
"This is not about this particular group of supervisors. It is about providing the best governance structure for Milwaukee County."
"The common cold can last longer than many people think—up to two weeks for the principal symptoms and perhaps weeks more for a cough that lingers even after the virus has been cleared away. There's also the possibility of secondary infections such as bacterial sinusitis. And some patients might get back-to-back colds, doctors say."
Should you hit 'snooze'?
Lots of people rely on the beep-beep-beep of an alarm clock. And while some start the morning with a cheerful press of the off button and a catlike stretch, others wake after a whack of the snooze button and another 10 minutes of rest. But do those extra few minutes help? One expert, David Dinges, chief of the Division of Sleep and Chronobiology in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, awakens the controversy.
