You have to love the pundits.  They sit on the sidelines and pontificate.  Most have little expertise in what they proffer to the public.  But, they are paid- some way too much.

Yesterday, we talked about parental involvement with children of adolescent age (and a little younger). That study used time diaries (Panel Study of Income Dynamics, Child Development Supplement) kept by parents on a 24 hour basis.

Quality versus quantity? That’s been the argument forever about raising kids. Which became even louder as moms began trading their jobs at home for jobs in the office or factory. Couple that with the desire to give our kids everything we never had (violin lessons, soccer camp, ballet, scouting) and we have a recipe for overload.

The Ides of April (give or take)

Grant.  Which meant that the Civil War, the war between the North and the South, the war between factions in America was “officially” over.  But, like our Battle for Independence, the war went on for at least a few more months.  There wasn’t instant communication back then- but. more importantly, to my mind, the war is still ongoing.

Wonder of Wonder, Miracle of Miracles

Today is the 7th day of Pesach.   For the past year, the Eqyptians have been beset by the  Ten Plagues. Dam, Tzfardaya, Kinim..  In English: Blood. Frogs. Lice. Wild Beasts. Pestilence. Boils. Hail. Locusts. Darkness. Slaying of the First-born.   We’ve put blood on our doorposts to protect us from that last plague.  And, now we are free, on the edge of Yam Suf, the Sea of Reeds.

Dichotomy

We’ve spoken now for a few days about brand equity  (Here is part 1 and this is part 2.)  The problem is that most of us think its value is far greater than we’ve truly earned.  And, when we see evidence to the contrary, we often discount it.
