Touching video by Sylvia Ann Hewlett revealing how she lost her bid at tenure and how she lost her seventh month-old babies at the same time. And how after 10 years, she's finally regained her earning power and is now the founding president of the Center for Work-Life Policy. I found this very inspiring because she was so vulnerable and her colleagues (assuming mostly male) were so callous and insensitive.

Expands on the controversy of employers asking for employee Facebook passwords. First of all, I don't know why anyone would want to work at a business that would have such a draconian requirement. Second, surprisingly enough, the employers actually have solid legal footing to make such a request according to this article. Janice Bellace claims in the U.S., anyone trying to challenge such a practice in court would have almost no legal ground to stand on. “People think they have more rights than they actually have; they seem to think they have rights that are just not there,” she says.
