Goal Setting Guide fear.less - real-life stories of overcoming fear Sex+ | Laci Green vegkid: Laci Green on Vaginal Maintenance! thank you for sharing my video! this one covers dirty vaginas and why you shouldn’t use soap to clean yourself. in terms of “feminine washes” (like summer’s eve), they are not necessary, and while they are not as harsh as regular soaps, they are still soaps and can give you an infection if you are sensitive (like moi). your vag is better off with water! Scholars’ rude awakenings | Features Does bitchiness serve any useful scholarly purpose? Source: Paul Bateman In the German context, a question is either an attempt to present one’s own view or an attack meant to question the authority of the speaker It seems to me”, says Clive Bloom, emeritus professor of English and American studies at Middlesex University, “that academics are the rudest people on earth.” Bloom’s first book, The Occult Experience and the New Criticism (1986), was greeted with a review claiming that it “mentions every orifice except the arsehole from whence [it] emerged”. And this, in Bloom’s cheerfully jaundiced view, is part of a wider sense of “resentment and defensiveness” resulting from the fact that most academics “don’t really produce anything that people want”. It is not difficult to turn up examples of academics being deliberately rude to each other, whether in print or in person, openly or anonymously. Can the same be said about really vicious reviews?

Maker's Schedule, Manager's Schedule July 2009 One reason programmers dislike meetings so much is that they're on a different type of schedule from other people. Meetings cost them more. There are two types of schedule, which I'll call the manager's schedule and the maker's schedule. When you use time that way, it's merely a practical problem to meet with someone. Most powerful people are on the manager's schedule. When you're operating on the maker's schedule, meetings are a disaster. For someone on the maker's schedule, having a meeting is like throwing an exception. I find one meeting can sometimes affect a whole day. Each type of schedule works fine by itself. Our case is an unusual one. I wouldn't be surprised if there start to be more companies like us. How do we manage to advise so many startups on the maker's schedule? When we were working on our own startup, back in the 90s, I evolved another trick for partitioning the day. Speculative meetings are terribly costly if you're on the maker's schedule, though.

How to Do What You Love January 2006 To do something well you have to like it. That idea is not exactly novel. We've got it down to four words: "Do what you love." The very idea is foreign to what most of us learn as kids. And it did not seem to be an accident. The world then was divided into two groups, grownups and kids. Teachers in particular all seemed to believe implicitly that work was not fun. I'm not saying we should let little kids do whatever they want. Once, when I was about 9 or 10, my father told me I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up, so long as I enjoyed it. Jobs By high school, the prospect of an actual job was on the horizon. The main reason they all acted as if they enjoyed their work was presumably the upper-middle class convention that you're supposed to. Why is it conventional to pretend to like what you do? What a recipe for alienation. The most dangerous liars can be the kids' own parents. Bounds How much are you supposed to like what you do? Sirens This is easy advice to give.
