At which the student approaches the bucket, produces a can of lager, opens it and pours into the bucket. “No matter how busy you are,” quips the student with a smile, “There’s always time for a quick beer.”
“A stronger tactic, which I’ve personally used, is to call out bias when you experience it,” Ms. Tulshyan said. “Again, it only works in environments where you have the psychological safety — which, sadly, is rare for employees of color — but I’ve taken managers aside in the past and said, ‘I’ve noticed you volunteered me for this committee again, but not my white male colleagues. Could we talk about that?’” The same tactic works in reverse. If you notice that your privileged colleagues are the only ones sent to conferences or given the opportunity to discuss the work your team is doing, mention it to your manager.
“Then it follows, does it not,” said the Buddha, “Whenever a person tries to abuse us, or to unload their anger on us, we can each choose to decline or to accept the abuse; whetSnake

Volunteers were asked to throw rings over pegs rather like the fairground game; no distance was stipulated, and most people seemed to throw from arbitrary, random distances, sometimes close, sometimes farther away. However a small group of volunteers, whom McClelland suggested were strongly achievement-motivated, took some care to measure and test distances that would produce an ideal challenge – not too easy, and not impossible.
Jean • 11 days ago I’d like to know name of a children’s book that I read as a child in mid to late 50s. It was about a puppy that loved to curl up in chairs, go under kitchen table, sit on lap of his little girl who owned him – but then he grew bigger and bigger. Eventually he was too big to do all those things, but he still tried so hard to keep doing them. The illustrations showed this adorable dog squeezing himself into and onto things he was way too big for. I often thought that Clifford the Big Red Dog was a take-off of that book. Reply
I’ve been looking for this book for months in vain. The story includes a teenage girl and a teenage guy as neighbors. They somehow are made responsible for raising a baby, not theirs. Their friends also help Em looking after the baby girl. After going through various troubles and adventures they discover the parents of the baby, but the mother is no more and the father doesn’t seem responsible or stable enough to take care of the baby. So at the end they eventually decide to raise the baby girl as their own and during this course these two neighbors (the protagonists girl and the guy) fall in love and legally become the parents of the baby. Please help to find this novel to be able to reread it again
