It doesn't hurt to have it checked out. I am on a supplement called DIM. Maybe dd can try it out. It has rave reviews, it helps with heavy periods and menopause as well. I had never heard about it, but doctor had recommended birth control pills which I hate taking so I went home and looked for a more natural way. This has helped me so much. I go back Oct. 29 to check on the cysts, I am hoping they will have disappeared by then. [ Reply | More ]

"This week, Carranza retweeted a post by Matt Gonzalez called “White Lips to White Ears,” which appeared on Medium, an unedited, un-curated blogging platform, where anyone can post anything. Gonzalez, who has two followers on the site, identifies himself there as an “Educator, Advocate, Policy Nerd.” His piece details a 2015 camping trip he took, during which a white woman disagreed with his views on white supremacy—specifically, that she was a beneficiary of it and advocate for it. Everyone else on the trip agreed with Gonzalez—“everyone but Becky. Her name’s not really Becky, but let’s call her Becky. Becky disagreed. Becky felt attacked.” (Becky is a common slur for white women. As The Root explains, “Not all white women are Beckys, but all Beckys are white women.”)" [ Reply | More ]

"Gonzalez details his patient efforts to get Becky “woke” to her unearned white privilege, though he is frustrated by her “white fragility,” which prevents her from hearing his analysis as anything but an attack on her character. Fortunately, some other whites succeed in convincing her that she is a racist. “At first, I was furious,” says Gonzalez. “I felt disarmed, inadequate, and hopeless in the face of white Amerikkkan racism.” But then he realized that it was “not my job to educate white Amerikkka on white supremacy,” but rather, “the responsibility of white allies to educate other white Amerikkkans on the role white supremacy plays.” Gonzalez’s article is silly, poorly argued, and unpublishable except on a bulletin board. Yet the chancellor of New York City’s schools not only read it, but decided to tweet it from his official city Twitter account. Previous New York school chancellors, flawed though they may have been, have usually avoided communicating in such a deliberately divisive manner. At the rate Carranza’s going, he’ll be out in the streets soon—not out a job, necessarily, but manning the barricades." [ Reply | More ]

I don't think he's a racist. I do think he's severely tone-deaf. The article sounds heavily enhanced for the purposes of publication, I doubt the conversation went down the way the writer is claiming it did. Among the doubts I have about Carranza, he's talking out of both sides of his mouth - sometimes he says he wants to integrate the schools (and FWIW IA with him that many MC white parents might like the local public school better than they assume - that was true w/us) but then I think he was also has been quoted as saying that he's not concerned about keeping well-off (i.e. white) people happy, if they don't like it and move, that's fine. I can't believe he's not putting together the pieces that by definition, everyone has to participate for the schools to be truly integrated, so maybe he is trying to call their bluff or something - it just seems so unprofessional.

The materialism aspect is indeed completely different. I have seen it first hand with my own dds and many friends at all 3 schools. Spence tends to have flashier families and this is not a criticism, it is a great school. It also tends to not discourage outward evidence of wealth. Brearley is more sublte, but has a number of marquee celeb families and is universally known as the school for the smartest girls (many may disagree, but the reputation exists) and there is an arrogance that goes along with that. Chapin is definitely the most understated of the 3 where signs of wealth are actively discouraged and there seems to be a level playing field in terms of friendships, but it gives off more of an aloof vibe. However, they are all great schools, so you take the good with the not so good/bad. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, it's different. The pro of Brearley is that it's the best academically with the most high achieving girls. The con is that it is also the most high pressure, and also has the most big name families making school competition competitive outside of academics alone. The pro of Spence is that it's probably second most academic without the competition of Brearley and it favors outspoken, outgoing girls (a pro if you're that type). The con is that it has a flashy, materialistic, "Queen Bee" culture which is worse in some classes than in others. The pro of Chapin is that it's the most understated and low key. The con is that is it's probably the least academic, and there is a subtle underlying WASP snobbery there that cannot be overcome through personality/intelligence alone. It's arguably the most "old society" school. [ Reply | More ]

I threw the whole thing away, that stuff is toxic. No wonder I've been having allergy symptoms. What a horrible product design. Can anyone recommend an alternative face brush that doesn't have a gap in the design such that mold can grow? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
