I think that one really big thing about the millennial generation is that we are going to have so many different careers over a lifetime. And that fluidity also translates into what our work structure looks like.
The Official NPR Unboxing PS4 Video: aka Nina Totenberg unboxing a Sony PS4….My favorite part is at 3:50.
This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.
The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.
MAKE THE DRUMMER SOUND GOOD!
About four months ago, I took my older son, Jojo, to the barber shop. I told the barber not to shave off all of Jojo’s hair and to just trim it. He then proceeded to shave Jojo’s head practically bald. ”Whoa, whoa, I told you that I did not want it bald, this is way too low!” I exclaimed.
"How can I tell you this?” said the black barber with clippers still in the front of Jojo’s hair. “You’ve got a real n****r here. He is a native boy. He is from the tribe. This ain’t pretty hair. This is the best cut for him." Despite the prevalence of the n-word in hip hop music, popular culture and the streets of my New York City neighborhood, I was both dumbfounded and devastated by the remark.
And I didn’t want to make a scene.
Because I’ve played the incident over and over in my mind since then, if I could go back in time, I know exactly what I would say. “Brother, this boy in front of you is my little king. How dare you refer to him as a ‘n****r’? That word was used to oppress us and it has no place coming out of your mouth or anyone else’s. His hair is magical. It defies gravity and replicates the DNA helix. If you can’t respect that magic, we have to leave.”
