I Quit My Job As A Lawyer — Now I'm A Career Coach For Women Of Color

Making a pivot in your career can be a terrifying prospect. Sometimes, the fear of leaving behind the comfort and stability of a job — even if it’s making you kind of miserable — can make it seem better to just stay put. But is putting off long-term happiness worth it?It's a dilemma Cynthia Pong is all too familiar with. Pong is the founder of Embrace Change, which specializes in helping women of color to transition in their careers and to realize their true ambitions. But just a few years ago,...

How Successful Women Advocate For Themselves At Work — & How You Can, Too

Women rarely have just one job. In addition to our careers, there’s the nurturing we do at home, within ourselves, and in our relationships. And let’s face it, it doesn’t even end there. At work, we’re often tasked with the additional, invisible labor of fighting for respect, recognition, and fair compensation.That’s what makes self-advocacy such a critical skill for women. We’re not always lucky enough to have a benevolent boss or a workplace that inherently recognizes our worth and power. But...

The Best Places To Cry At Work, According To A Person Who Cries A Lot

If you have never cried at work, in my opinion you are a robot. Everything makes me cry these days. The news? Come on. Gillette commercials? I'm wrecked. Onions? Forget about it! Climate change? Buh-bye, game over, I need to excuse myself from this brainstorm to go cry on the toilet, can someone please send me notes of what I miss?It may be that I have over-productive tear ducts. Or maybe it's just that I'm a woman. (Haven't you heard? Women are emotional, and that is why there is a gender wage...

Abridge Too Far — Is It Ever Okay To Perform An Opera Cut Down By Half Or More?

Taking as a jumping-off point an 80-minute Idomeneo in Pittsburgh last month, Jeremy Reynolds and several opera professionals discuss whether and when cutting an opera to half its length or less is a good way to serve 21st-century audiences.

6 Possible Destinations for Antonio Brown

The football season is behind us as the Patriots beat the Rams to capture their 6th Super Bowl Championship. When it comes to the offseason, there’s usually plenty of action and transactions that take place. One of the biggest stories will be where will Antonio Brown will be playing next season? As we all know, Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers bumped heads at the end of the year. In the final week of the season, Brown was forced to sit because of various reasons.

Alice Darr: Feature Story

In January, I posted on obscure singer Alice Darr, who recorded her first album in 1962. While researching another subject recently, I came across a feature on the singer in the Cumberland News in Cumberland, Md., from January 31 1963. The headline was "Local Singer to Record Second LP Album Soon." It's hard to know why Darr wasn't a bigger name except that labels had shifted to rock and soul, leaving her stranded in jazz. Here's the article typed out... Alice Darr, who won a local amateur co...

New Music: Lou The Human “Make You Sick”

Lou the Human, the scrappy young rapper from Staten Island, has kept up a steady stream of new music since dropping his debut project Humaniac! back in October 2017. Songs like “Play Your Part” and “Speak of the Devil” delivered more of the delinquent raps that made Danny Brown and J.I.D into Lou fans. Meanwhile, last year’s “Empty Bottle” showcased a spacier, more emo-influenced side to his sound, which isn’t surprising considering he was bumping “a lot of sad rock” as a kid before he got i...

Famed Louis Kahn-Designed Concert Boat Retires To Florida

It was designed by Kahn for the 1976 Bicentennial and lived in Pittsburgh. But it’s been in disrepair for years and its elderly owner has been trying to unload it. In 2017, cellist Yo Yo Ma wrote an impassioned plea to save it, and the challenge was picked up by Pahokee, an economically-depressed small town in Florida, which plans to restore it and use it as an attraction. – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Alice Darr and Kevin Gavin

Guitarist Mundell Lowe was a wonderful arranger with impeccable taste and intimate elegance. This was true of his big-band writing and those for small groups. Recently I posted on his Columbia albums for Joe Mooney (1963), his TV Action Jazz albums (1959), the score for Satan in High Heels (1961), Jerri Winters Again (1962) and J.J. Johnson's Broadway Express (1965). Two more beautiful examples of Mundy's touch were albums for singers in 1962—Alice Darr's I Only Know How to Cry and Kevin Gavin'...
