[ - ] Staying with in laws in Montclair this week and there is no way I could ever do a commute like this every week. Penn Station is a nightmare. I will take our 1200 sq ft condo over this any day. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Dear MIL, calling and texting to ask if we are doing ok or need anything is the opposite of helping. I get that it makes you feel good about yourself but someone who is helpful offers real help rather than requires extra attention. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Ingeborg Rapoport was denied her PhD at the University of Hamburg in 1938 for “racial reasons” due to her Jewish heritage. Last week, the 102-year-old Rapoport at long last had the opportunity to defend her doctoral thesis on diphtheria before an academic committee – 77 years after she completed it. After she aced her oral exam, her PhD was approved and the degree will be awarded to her in a ceremony next month in Hamburg. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

That year, she emigrated penniless to the US where she did several internships at hospitals and eventually received her M.D. from the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania. After working for several years in the US and starting a family, she returned to Europe and founded the first neonatology clinic in Germany at Berlin’s Charité Hospital. [ Reply | More ]

A Hamburg colleague of her son learned about her story and presented her case to the current dean of the medical school, Dr. Uwe Koch-Gromus. Koch-Gromus was determined that Rapoport should complete her degree – and that she should earn it, not be granted an honorary Ph.D., even though the university’s legal department said that was the simplest solution. Koch-Gromus arranged for Rapoport to do an oral examination on diphtheria, the subject of her original paper, and she began studying up on the past 70 years of diphtheria research. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] At DSs golf tournament last night near our house. It is a 9 hole par 3 course. One of his teammates mother and sister walked the whole course and kept track of who hit what at every hole-out loud. "Matt hit his driver for 200 yards and then his 7 iron to the green and then his putter." How do you politely tell them to SHUT UP?! 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

or: exactly. I used to play tennis and the coaches would remind parents to keep it down (there was always one or two moms who would feel the need to give the play by play). Maybe you can involve the coach, he/she could send a "friendly reminder" to keep quiet. [ Reply | More ]
