This Veteran's Day, Broader Your Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, as of June 2019, 200,000 service members transition from military to civilian life annually. In the last several years, the federal government has taken many steps to support them — including the Joining Forces Initiative in 2011, which called for companies to hire and train 1.5 million military veterans and their spouses, and the the Forever GI Bill passed in 2017, which ensures that student veterans can take advantage of the educational b...

Old Navy Sale Shopping + Super Cash: 10 Cheap Winter Basics

Old Navy Sale Shopping + Super Cash: 10 Cheap Winter Basics I can admit this freely: My wardrobe lately is almost exclusively leggings and sweatshirts. Granted, I do learn towards cute leggings and sweatshirts whenever possible, but still. I feel a little sad for the lonely ankle boots in my closet, waiting for pandemic life to be over so they can accompany me to an evening of dinner and dancing. This earnest dive into loungy comfort has put a slight strain on my rotation. Thankfully, I have an ...

Weekly Roundup: Items for Cooler Weather

Here’s a shortlist of potential winners. Some of the items have worked on my clients, and some I’ve seen in person. A shout-out to the Sanctuary brand, which has become more size inclusive. My hope is that more brands will follow suit. Browse the colour options, and read the reviews to get another perspective.

Podcast #651: How to Turn Fear Into Fuel

We typically think of fear as a negative emotion. Something that feels terrible, and not only keeps us away from true danger, but also inhibits us from going after our life’s goals and passions.  Fear can indeed be an unwelcome hindrance, but, my guest today argues, it can also be a powerful propellant and a signpost towards success. His name is Patrick Sweeney, he’s a tech entrepreneur, a university lecturer, a coach and consultant to CEOs, professional athletes, and Navy SEALs, and the auth...

Gilmore Girls: 16 Nebendarsteller*innen, die dir nicht ohne Grund bekannt vorkommen

Kastanien und bunte Blätter sammeln. Den ganzen Sonntag mit einem guten Buch auf dem Sofa verbringen. Beim Waldspaziergang frische, saubere Luft einatmen. Es gibt viele Dinge, die ich im Herbst liebend gern mache. Eine meiner absoluten Lieblingsbeschäftigungen ist aber, meine Go-to-Serien noch mal komplett durchzuschauen. Gossip Girl, Friends, Suits, How I Met Your Mother, Gilmore Girls & Co. sind, besonders in diesen stürmigen Zeiten, mein Comfort Food für die Seele; mein Rettungsanker auf hoh...

Aviation Ancestry

Discovering the Logbooks of a Life Rarely Discussed Covid sequestration is, it turns out, an inescapable cloister (especially now, with Wisconsin’s record-setting infections), perfect for undertaking long put off tasks you’ve always meant to get to when you had the time. In this unpredictable year, such efforts can be rewarding surprises and poignant lessons for our future understanding of our present existence. My dad, Morris Henry Spangler, died on April 26, 2008. He was a World War II naval ...

Podcast #645: The Forgotten Story of the Lumberjack Commandos of WWII

Today, it’s hard to go very long without hearing about special operations forces like the Army’s Green Berets and the Navy’s SEALs. But before special operators became an ingrained part of the military’s strategy and established a prominent presence in the public eye, they existed as experimental, now largely forgotten units that were launched during the Second World War. One of the primary predecessors of today’s commandos was the 1st Special Service Force, which was known simply as the Forc...

Diese 6 Farben machen deine Wohnung laut Expert*innen wohnlicher

Farben und Emotion hängen sehr stark zusammen und so können wir beispielsweise durch ein Outfit in einem bewusst gewählten Farbton einer bestimmten Stimmung Ausdruck verleihen. Gleiches gilt für die Einrichtung unser Wohnung: Während manche Nuancen für eine ruhige, gelassene Atmosphäre sorgen, wecken andere die Kreativität und Lebensfreude in uns. Und weil 2020 so... sagen wir mal turbulent ist, ist es auch kein Wunder, das sich viele von uns aktuell eher zu erdenden, unaufgeregten, aber gleichz...

Worth the Obsession

I’m always tempted to try to spread myself thin, to try to accomplish more than I should. The result is that I sometimes do a good enough job rather than giving something the care that it deserves. I was challenged by a principle called “Do less, then obsess,” found in Morten Hansen’s book Great at Work: Top performers did less and more: less volume of activities, more concentrated effort…To work smart means to maximize the value of your work by selecting a few activities and applying inte...

Staying Dry & Distant at the EAA Museum

With thunderstorms lined in assaulting waves on radar and pathfinding drops splattering themselves against my office window, changing my Saturday morning plans for a two-wheel ride to Rio, Wisconsin, seemed prudent. Remembering that the EAA Aviation Museum had reopened on the previous Monday, a visit there would be interesting on several levels, especially since it has been several years since I last paced my way around its winged occupants. Turning into the museum driveway, the blue signs sayi...

Theodore Roosevelt’s Heartwarming Letters to His Children

When Theodore Roosevelt assumed the presidency in 1901, he became, at 42 years old, the youngest president in the country’s history, and his children with wife Edith were similarly youthful in age. Theodore III (14), Kermit (12), Ethel (10), Archibald (7), and Quentin (4), along with seventeen-year-old Alice from TR’s first marriage, brought an unprecedented level of enthusiastic, early-years energy to the White House.  Though the responsibilities of his office were great, Roosevelt always trie...

Boys, Ferocity, Frontiers, and Sports

Editor’s Note: This is a guest article by Karl Zinsmeister. Organized sports, from college athletics to local Little League teams, are slowly coming back to life after being on lockdown. There are those who will say that these activities aren’t “essential.” But they’ve been saying that since before the pandemic. And they couldn’t be more wrong. There are folks who have long argued that sports are just escapism. Plenty of teachers and professors think athletic teams are nothing but a distraction...

Podcast #617: What It’s Like to Go to Army Ranger School

Which branch of the military has the toughest training course for its officers and special operators is a matter of animated debate, but there’s no question that the Army’s Ranger School is a viable candidate for carrying that designation. Over nine weeks, and three grueling phases, soldiers undergo physical, mental, and emotional challenges that test their endurance, resilience, and leadership. My guest today went through Ranger School twice: first as an infantry officer in 2004, and then ju...

Guess which gay anthem the Library of Congress just added to its registry…

The Library of Congress just selected the “Y.M.C.A.” as a culturally significant song. The outrageous gay anthem–which has also become a staple of class reunions and wedding receptions–joined the likes of Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer” and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” as part of the United States’ registry of important musical compositions that help shape the culture. “[O]ver 40 years since it hit the streets and the dance floors, “Y.M.C.A.”…is an American cultural phenomenon  —...

Outfit Formula: Neutral Spring Light Blue

I find light blue extremely versatile, which is why I have a few light blue bags, some tops, light blue denim, and I just committed to a pair of light blue sneakers. Light blue looks fab with neutrals like black, white and grey. It looks great with other shades of blue, earth tones, sour brights, and pastels. It’s extra pretty when you have blue eyes because it makes them sparkle. This is my current collection of light blue wardrobe items, and I’ll happily add more. Here are some outfits that m...

Your Guide To Mens Bell Bottom Jeans [April 2020]

Are Bell Bottoms 60s Or 70s? Bell Bottom jeans were popular in the 60s and 70s. They were initially worn as an anti war statement.

Fenty Beauty Navy or Die Flypencil Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Navy or Die Fenty Beauty Navy or Die Flypencil Longwear Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep navy blue with cool undertones and a subtle, pearl finish. The texture was smooth, creamy without being too emollient or wet; it actually dried down very quickly, so it wasn’t the most smudgeable formula one could reach for, but it did set into place and stay on well. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single, fluid stroke, which ...

Is There a Place for Love in Leadership?

“A company is stronger if bound by love than by fear,” the late Herb Kelleher, co-founder, CEO and Chairman of Southwest Airlines, once said. When Kip Tindell, retired co-founder and Chairman of The Container Store, first heard Kelleher’s bold declaration more than 40 years ago he was, in his own words, “completely taken by it.” In Tindell’s book, Uncontainable, he describes how he and his leadership team went on to shape The Container Store’s “employee first” culture in ways that reflect love. ...

Priests broke confession confidentiality to out gay soldiers to military

(Photo posed by models, via Unsplash/Public Domain) A British politician has apologized after it emerged some chaplains with the British armed force told superiors about gay and bisexual military personnel in the 1990s. The UK dropped its ban on openly LGB people serving in the armed forces in 2000. However, before this time, gay military personnel were routinely dismissed if their sexuality became known. According to the Times, some chaplains reported LGB personnel to their superiors after h...
