First of four myths about business success:

The assumptions about bosses in the article are offensive to say the least. Sounds like the author has some personal issues that need to be worked out. Really?, the boss has a wife and three kids? His wife walks around with poop on her sleeve and does not flirt with him so he has to look elsewhere in the office for Barbie? What does Barbie do when her boss is a woman? Oh oh! Looks like her "flirting" and "wet tee shirt" sweater aren't going to work this time! Since when does Barbie have good eye contact and listening skills? I didn't learn listening skills and eye contact from an office bimbo and suggesting that we have something to learn from Barbie (or an office bimbo) is ridiculous. It's hard enough breaking down stereotypes and getting equal pay for equal work for women, without having someone perpetuate the stereotypes, much less telling us we have something to learn from them!

Chef Laura: Take me out to the ball game

After reading this article, a coworker told me that they tried a free bike sharing program in Cape May, NJ. The bright yellow communal bikes became poorly spray painted beaten up skeletons of their former selves abandoned on the streets of Philly. Oh well :( By Chef Laura on 2014 04 13

Good article! Bike share is big in France with free rides for trips under 30 minutes. For longer rides after that, you just exchange your bike at a nearby rack for another! By Minerva on 2014 04 10

I'm intrigued about becoming a Lyft driver, but I hear some of the divers are not so good and a little creepy. Have you actually used one before? By Do they text and drive? on 2014 04 10

Chef Laura: Take me out to the ball game

I'm 6'4', and often drive the car 2 go, pretty awesome. Only problem is parking, while it is free, you spend $20 bucks driving in circles down down looking for a place to park. By Car 2 not park on 2014 04 10

U.S. cities still have a long way to go. Just returned from Amsterdam where two-thirds of the transits are via bike. Cars are officially discouraged. Doubt the auto/oil lobbies in the U.S. will allow that to happen here. By PF on 2014 04 10
