The Status of Feminism in the 60s

The lines and direction of this episode are pretty offensive to women when watching in 2014 but I thought it was still an interesting glimpse into the minds of the American people during the 60s.

The Andy Griffith Show - Ellie runs for Council… After watching this; it’s not hard to see why gender bias still exists. They are passed down from one generation to the next.

Cyclists Are Part of a Solution

People tend to focus on cyclists and how they misbehave — which does happen, but the real issue is that we lack infrastructure for anything else besides cars. For instance, can you imagine trying to stop at the bottom of a steep hill… on a bike? Or how about desperately pedaling to climb a hill on a narrow street when there is a car waiting impatiently behind you? Cycling is not as safe as it could be mainly because when the city was constructed, the priority was for cars to get around safely and efficiently.

Cyclists are making roads less congested and the air less polluted, yet they are vilified by the public and by the police. However, if you believe in the idea of “no taxation without representation”, then perhaps blame shouldn’t be placed squarely on the cyclist until our governments can change the roads and laws that can give cyclists the same rights and safety provisions drivers afford by default.

In the meantime, I’m sure all cyclists will obey those laws and come to a screeching halt when there is a stop sign, at the bottom of hills everywhere.

Why do so many businesses fail?

Perhaps it is because many of us find it difficult to blame ourselves. We convince ourselves that it is unlikely we were the cause of failure. However, if you fail to admit that you have flaws, you won’t be able correct them. Thereby, setting yourself up to fail over and over again. So, that is possibly why so many businesses fail… because we are our own worst enemy.
