So bleibst du auch in diesen Zeiten produktiv

Für so viele ist es im Moment sehr schwierig oder vielleicht sogar unmöglich, sich auf die Arbeit zu konzentrieren, geschweige denn produktiv zu sein. Immerhin sind wir jetzt einer noch nie dagewesenen Menge an Ablenkungen ausgesetzt. „Ich kriege nichts auf die Reihe, kannst du mir helfen?!“ ist die Frage, die mir als Autorin von The Myth Of The Nice Girl in letzter Zeit am häufigsten gestellt wird. Ich habe festgestellt, dass ich mich an jenen Tagen besonders gehetzt und erschöpft fühle, ...

Word of the week: Fig

This post was going to be a short riff on a line in that Inauguration poem by Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman—the line about the vine and the fig tree, which got me thinking about figs. Mmmm, figs. But one fig led to another, and next thing you know I was way down a figgy rabbit hole from which there was no escape. Go figure. Here’s the line from “The Hill We Climb”: Scripture tells us to envision that everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree, and no one shall make them afra...

Target employees claim the chain will wait to arrest shoplifters until thieves steal enough to get felony charges. Experts say it's part of a larger trend to mitigate theft across retail.

Mark Makela/Getty Images A viral TikTok video is calling Target's approach to shoplifters into question. Seven former and current Target employees across the US confirmed that it is common for the retailer to not immediately apprehend certain shoplifters and wait for the total value of the stolen items to reach a certain amount.  Some said that this policy helps Target monitor and catch its high volume shoplifters on larger charges. A loss prevention expert said that retailers might not r...

A “baker’s dozen” and some idioms about food

I decided to write this post, because I have an idea about the origin of the idiom baker’s dozen, and ideas occur so seldom that I did not want this opportunity to be wasted. Perhaps our readers will find my suggestion reasonable or refute it. I’ll be pleased to hear from them. Also, since a baker’s dozen presupposes an extra loaf, I too decided to add more food idioms.This is what Walter W. Skeat wrote in 1862, many years before he began work on his great English etymological dictionary:“I do n...

THE ROAD TO 300K - From the Shop to the Blue Ridge Parkway

It's never good when you pull text message from your wife while you're on the pointy end of a skiff in Florida asking, "Who do I need to call to tow the Element?".  Dammit.    I had sensed this coming for awhile.  When shifting out of third gear every now and then, it just didn't feel right.  There was a hard to describe thud feel and I figured that the transmission was showing it's age as we neared 300,000 miles.  It finally died and now wouldn't come out of second gear.  A tow truck ride and m...

Les Snead says Rams laid groundwork to contend in 2020

The world sees a team that missed the playoffs last season and then gave up one of the NFL’s most accomplished ballcarriers, among other stars of a Super Bowl run the year before. Les Snead sees it a little differently. The general manager says the Rams are contenders in 2020 after taking bold steps to improve a running game that was going backward with Todd Gurley. One of the evaluations above is true, or maybe both are true. The search for reality will be a main plot line for the Rams’ trainin...
