For anyone who thinks women are doing just fine, here's yet another example that might interest those of you who have girls who are athletes.
When 12-year-old McKenna Peterson opened her new Dick’s Sporting Goods
basketball catalogue recently, the Arizona basketball player and
superfan was frustrated to find a glaring misstep: The only girl in the
catalogue’s pages wasn’t actually playing basketball — she was sitting
in the stands.
I note that the Microsoft CEO has tried to backpedal on his statement about women and raises but now he says that HE got this "generic" advice about "good karma" and raises from his mentors and had "followed it in his own career." Sure he did. That's how he got to be CEO and that's how it works in business.
Those of you concerned about bell times and teen sleeping habits, you should read this. I have a high school friend who is now a doctor and researcher at Tulane and his work is around sleep. I am convinced he is right about the issue of darkness and sleep. I am also convinced of this:
Many people believe their sleep is already adequate, but they are often
not aware, or can no longer remember, what a truly good night’s sleep
feels like. In order to correct your circadian rhythm and get optimal
amounts of sleep, you should avoid blue light for 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.
I think many teens (and young adults) sleep with their phones/laptops, on and next to their beds, and use them into the night. Might be worth trying to cut back on if your teen is having sleep issues.
