In a recent editorial, The New York Times offered Bill de Blasio their advice on educational policy. My advice to the new mayor who takes office on January 1, 2014 and the new School Chancellor is to ignore The New York Times as much as possible.
A new study documenting that just 90 companies are responsible for two-thirds of manmade carbon emissions since the Industrial Revolution triggered some pushback in the blogosphere. Blame the likes of BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Shell for global warming? Not fair!
For any longtime LGBT health researcher, 2003 stands out -- it was the year that the Traditional Values Coalition compiled a list of research studies by the National Institutes of Health and slipped that list to Congress.

You have to ask yourself if you're in an organization where your preferred style of politics is suited to the prevailing one and whether you're willing and able to adapt. Are you where what you have to offer adds value, where what you have to say is heard, and where your management/leadership skills have been duly noted?
