PetSmart's policy helps reinforce the incorrect belief that pit bulls are different from other dogs. That they are dangerous and can't be trusted, just because of the shape of their head. That they don't deserve to be treated as well as other dogs. This belief has consequences.
The idea that Coke could simply abandon its top full-calorie brands and still offer a healthy portfolio to investors was absurd. So the company turned to overseas markets to make up for lost revenue at home by selling more Coca-Cola abroad, in places like India, where the company happily reported caloric beverages enjoying double-digit growth in 2012.
If I didn't go through the lows, I wouldn't have ever taken the time to unlearn the mistruths spoken over me. I wouldn't have quit my job and founded my own business. I wouldn't be in a healthy relationship with someone whole who loves the whole version of me equally back.
Ello has a manifesto that expands upon that idea a bit more. It says: "Your social network is owned by advertisers. Every post you share, every friend you make, and every link you follow is tracked, recorded, and converted into data.
The truth is, I'm kinda scared shitless. But worry never changed an outcome. And while fear is a main character in life (as is failure), it informed the plot much more when I was young and it made decisions for me.
Until we reach a large number of flights on a given system, we should be prepared for periodic failures -- far more than we would expect or tolerate with our cars and planes. And since we hope to put people atop many of these systems, we need to reach high flight count goals.
The administration had the opportunity, through a strong gainful employment rule, to demand here and now that federal aid only go to career education programs that were truly helping their students. It didn't seize the chance.
As Election Day approaches, two reports show us exactly how corrupted our political system has become. Unless voters come out in force, it looks like corporate money is about to buy itself another house of Congress.
There are at least a dozen dogs in my advertising agency on any day of the week. They run down halls, chase balls, gnaw on toys, snooze during meetings, and are eager for quick walks when their human companions need a work break.
Employers who want to move from good to great need to understand and truly value parental efforts that do not fit neatly into clock hours.
Various studies show that 45-70 percent of all shopping carts don't end in a purchase, which means that you and your online business are fully aware of the frustration that abandoned carts can bring.
The recent debate over falling oil prices has become an over simplified economic question of supply and demand, ignoring other interrelated economic theories.
Buying your first home, starting a family or purchasing a car are major events that require a lot of financial planning. Unfortunately for millennials, a recent TD Bank survey found that two-thirds of older millennials (ages 24-34) wish they had been more financially prepared for these life events.
The allure of starting a business is strong. That's part of the American dream for many, especially those in their 50s and older who are looking to leave their lifelong jobs in the corporate world or retire from a small-to-midsize company. The reality is that 27 percent of start up businesses fail within the first year and are at continued risk after that first year.
Our queer ancestors, the ones who fought at Stonewall and marched on Washington and were arrested and beaten and murdered for their queerness, weren't battling so that we could be like everyone else. We have never been just like everyone else and I hope we never are.
