  4. The anthem apparently reflects ability to change to live in the now, modernized and not stay in history. We move along.
  5. I hope we bring the medals and sing the updated anthem from "in all thy sons command" with "in all of us command" Go Canada Go!!

  7. Her brand is too important and big to make such an announcement to run today. However I think she might make a go, another something to add to her repertoire
  8. I would like to say anything business (includes economics) will get you faster into your eventual chosen career. When you choose urban planning you become more specialized and with less prospect of jobs in the field of choice. Networking then becomes crucial as jobs in specialized engineering are limited. Perhaps it is to distinguish between many things including your like for a subject matter and practicality. For instance, I liked math. But, what if statistics Canada did not offer me a job. I prefer to side with the culture of the locals in South Africa "you make a plan". So, I pursued economics among others. The love for a area of study never faltered, you will find out as your journey continues. As it turns out in the end you can enjoy the best of both ends. I have a peculiar feeling you already know the answer . Good luck in your studies.
  9. I want to look at women gaining access to executive jobs in a positive light. Currently there are less job opportunities at the top and plenty of qualified women to fill executive type jobs. If there can be a level playing field for both men and women there will be a greater probability for change and less games. The dynamics will change. I don't deny women tend to want other women to have a similar experience in terms of upward movement, and it is never simple - they are not in the network sphere of those in charge. The locker talk now-infamous 'Access Hollywood' tape B Bush Entertainment Tonight on the bus by Trump is a good example - women are excluded from this crowd, however women are the subject matter and in a not so desirable way for work.
  10. Argus Still majority of executive jobs are held by men. When you compare happily attached to women (out of bounds) to women who pout their prowess (out of bounds or not) trying to get contracts and to get ahead in business, it is more difficult, and takes long to secure contracts when perceived as out of bounds. I rather put on my lipstick and high heels if it makes life easy. With more women at the top, there will come change. Indeed a welcome change to wear flats.
  11. Candidate reduced to a hashtag #nomoore
  12. They is much "anti-male" literature available in attempt to understand the male dominated workspace in executive jobs. There is nothing incorrect about enhancing and educating "girl behavior" to boys while everyone recognize what is undesirable behavior in the workplace. However, all the current misconduct allegations are levied on men in power by both men and women. Some allegations happened decades ago however misconduct revelation is making an impact now(some people question why now). Maybe social media makes it easy to say metoo, maybe because women enrage that men want to deny bad behavior 40 years ago (they are not fired) or women are satisfied when men they are regretful and admit bad behavior is wrong (most of the men are getting fired) finally some standard. Whose next, accusations has flu like symptoms - it spreads and the season is not over. It is not about a failure to communicate between men and women in the workspace, it's about wanting to get ahead, and the discrepancies women they face to get there.
  13. Time has named appropriately the "Silence Breakers" person of the year for 2017. It is a movement that is current, and people are taking notice...for now. I think change would be registered when women and men hold power equally, and women supporting women in companies instead of current majority of men holding power position and women in power keeping other women out.
  14. Thanks for sharing the song August. It is profound. It immediately reminded me of Sia's Bird set free I agree love and being love give meaning to life. I would be wonderful if every person can experience and find love. Sia's song reconciled living by not being bugged down with struggles in life. Like move along. People can choose to give love, even when you didn't receive love. What I mean is that people can still aspire, hope and see love in others, while they are optimistic about their own future. From Sia: I don't care if I sing off key. I find myself in my melodies, I sign for love, I sing me. I shout it out like the bird set free. Each man search for meaning in life, and each defining meaning is what makes up life. (RB)
