    This.
    The experience with hiring musicians for orchestras demonstrates it so, so clearly. Women were heavily under-represented. Hiring processes changed so that musicians were behind a screen, could...

    I don't think they'll back down - if they back down in HK, that'll open the door to other regions wanting more independence, and they already have internal clashes.

    Will they roll in with tanks?...

    That's why I stopped watching. When the crimes and conspiracies happen because the baddies are focusing on the team (as opposed to doing their baddie stuff with team investigating them), I lose...

    My first step would be to "assume" it was a mistake. Like, oh dear friend, terrible discovery, you may inadvertently have taken a box of these sentimental decorations. Tee hee, these boxes, all so...

    Good lord yes, just ignore her crazy shit-stirring. Clearly she didn't get the reaction she wanted out of you.

    Don't discuss her with your mom either. Just ignore her and her stupid letters...

    Yes, I was reading about it too. How we, esp the younger gen who grew up on computer screens, may be losing some of the ability to focus deeply (like you would with a book, totally absorbed in one...

    Since your DH does not in fact know the reason, it's all speculation anyways. We have people with their own offices, and people sharing offices - and yes, some of the shares are mixed-gender. Some of...

    Yup.
    And unless OP is heavily editorializing her interactions with trainer, the horse's suitability or lack thereof is a question best left to a more suitable trainer.



    Perfectly said.

    ^ yes yes, rankness/aggressiveness immediately ascribed to "most likely" abuse, and the horse characterized as "poor horse."

    This horse is a one-owner horse, who used to be a children's mount. OP...

    It's a problem if the horse charges you with pinned ears when you hold it. It's a problem that when she does that, you choose to forgo the lunge whip, rather than getting her to accept its presence....

    Uhhh...yeah. Agree with the government or not, I think all can agree that the linked article is horribly, horribly written. "Commercial use only" is not what I got out of it:

    For most people I personally know, the kitchen or baths (or both) were the sticking points when house-hunting. For my mom, the kitchen was the thing that needed to be perfect.

    It "came off offensive" because it was offensive as hell. And right on the heels of the other guy's "heh heh women can't drive heh."

    If the horse will longe to hand and voice commands, but runs at OP with ears pinned at the mere presence of a longe whip, that part at least isn't pain, whatever else may be happening under saddle.
