The Art of Reinvention: Taking Responsibility and Credit Leads to Power
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Four years ago, I lost my job. I was sad, angry and unsure about what I wanted to do next. I knew, though, that I didn't want to go back into the corporate world, where the chances of another layoff down the line would have been pretty high. Yet, I was confused. I didn't have infinite new business ideas to start something on my own. No one in my family or my inner circle had developed an entrepreneurial muscle. I felt lonely and was scared sh*tless of the unknown. A year later, I started blogging. At first, I did it for myself, and then, gradually, for other people's blogs. It took me a year to decide I wanted to take the next step and become a freelance writer. Why that long? Fear. Fear of failure. According to a recent RBS survey, this is what stops 60% of the polled women from turning their passion into businesses. Lack of self-confidence is their worst enemy. Also, women don't take as much credit as they should for their accomplishments. My story is the story of many women ...

Tracy Middendorf: Education for Girls: Why Are We Still Talking About This?
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
It seems crazy to me that we are still talking about how to help girls around the world get an education. It's 2013 -- at this point, it's a no-brainer that everyone has a right to an education, and we have plenty of facts and figures to back up the idea that educating girls not only improves their lives, but it also improves life for everyone in their country by lowering malnutrition and HIV rates, and growing the economy. (You would think that educating girls for the sake of educating girls would be enough, but for those for whom it is not, rest assured that there's an economic gain. Bill Gates once told a gender-segregated audience in Saudi Arabia that their country could only meet its economic goals if it started utilizing the other half of the talent in the country. Guess which side of the audience enjoyed hearing that.) But perhaps I'm the crazy one. We do, after all, live in a world where there are still child brides who are treated as legal property, and human traff ...

TV WEEKEND; Women Having Sex, Hoping Men Tune In
NYTimes - about 13 years
Except for the politics and soft-core pornography, ''The L Word,'' Showtime's new series about lesbians that starts on Sunday, is old-fashioned fun -- more ''Melrose Place'' than ''Sex and the City.'' The show's equivocal message does stand out, however, though perhaps not quite as much as the steamy scenes of women making love. ''The L Word'' has

FILM REVIEW; A Small-Town Southerner Who Chooses Rebellion Over Being a Belle
NYTimes - over 14 years
Although a lot of tender care clearly went into the making of ''The Rising Place,'' this misty-eyed Southern nostalgia piece, in treading the line between sappy and sanguine, winds up mired in tear-drenched quicksand. Set mostly in the 1940's, the story is a series of flashbacks from the deathbed of gentle, wise Emily Hodge, known as Aunt Millie

It's hard to dislike a romantic comedy that's infatuated with the concept of love, even if its hero is a guy who can't help pulling his pants down at the wrong time.
