No one wants more government and you can't legislate morality, but obviously, there is a growing movement in Congress to at least make the FMLA fair and equitable and put value on the backbone of America's success -- people who work.
In this digital age, marketing is progressing with leaps and bounds. The advent of social networks has further opened up new avenues for marketers to promote their products and increase their reach. Probably, one of the best social networks for advertising right now is Facebook.
It felt as if no one understood the hurdles I knew I had to overcome to get to a point where the "happy news" wasn't underlined in bold with a huge asterisks of "but what happens when..."
While the announcement of your rainbow baby is joyous and meaningful news, something else in your status update struck a chord with millions and sent a very loud message to the Internet -- miscarriage doesn't need to be a secret. This is huge.
Congratulations to Zuckerberg and Chan, and our condolences for all you've faced. We share your hope, and we know there's an anxiety about pregnancy after loss that won't completely go away until that child arrives.
What touched me about Mr. Zuckerberg's post was his willingness to speak honestly about the miscarriages he and his wife have gone through. I have borne witness to this loss from clients and friends, many who have kept the pregnancy a secret from those they see every day, if it was still early.
Yes, losing my pregnancy was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. But it was also a universal experience, and one that now connected me to a cloud of mothers like Priscilla who gave me hope for myself and the future of my family.
I turned my participation at the National Speakers Association convention into a hybrid getaway this summer. NSA was a transformative learning experience to help me grow my business and a wonderful way to enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Washington, DC.
Celebrity Apprentice fans, don't despair. Yes, your favorite show might be on hiatus now that NBC has severed its relationship with Donald Trump. But, should the apocalypse occur and The Donald becomes our nation's 45th chief executive, expect to see the program return ... to the White House.
"I like plays that feel like somebody took a fun house mirror and put it up to the real world, and it's sort of reflecting back a version of it to you. I find that, in looking at that reflection, you can start to understand a little more about your life."
Facebook's policy disproportionately affects certain categories of users, and whether intentional or not, that's discriminatory as well as dangerous for many. So, Zuck, let's cut through the confusion and make things perfectly clear: it's time for Facebook to be accountable to its community and delete this policy once and for all.
The future is closer than we think. While we recognize that failures are part of birthing a new industry especially one like private space, the tragic failure of SpaceX's Falcon 9 on June 28 2015, signifies that rockets are too complex a technology to deliver long term repeatability.
No one is perfect, and Jobs certainly knocked heads with many in his career, but if his story of redemption is not told accurately, then the film will serve no purpose other than pandering to the idea of a good dramatic film.
This is the problem with turning society over to engineers. While they love efficiency, they are not great a uncertainty, failure or serendipity. And in many ways, those elements are the most interesting aspects of the texture of the human experience. And all of this is about to be lost.
I believe your generation will do a better job than mine at fixing the problem of gender inequality. So we turn to you. You are the promise for a more equal world. Great leaders don't just develop people like them, they develop everyone. If you want to be a great leader, develop the women -- as well as the men -- at your companies.
Deleting Facebook seemed to be a way to reclaim some sort of simplicity (as did turning off my phone for a two-week break). I made the decision at a time when life seemed too much.
