What I’m Reading Today

Thu, October 20, 2011


As I’m getting ready for this weekend’s Blogalicious conference and the panel I’m on to talk about philanthropy in the digital age, I’m trying to catch up on a little reading, too.  Here are some articles I thought you’d enjoy, as well!

If reports are accurate, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi is dead.

Fighting the War on poverty With Early Childhood Education

Things are getting fun over at my new group effort, The Broad Side — Mom in a Million is talking about the Occupy Wall Street movement.  Can it work?

Mitt Romney was supposedly the winner at the latest GOP debate, but can he win in Iowa?  His people aren’t sure.

Now Rick Perry likes a flat tax? Who’s next?

Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list is 85% male.  What the …?!?

And please read this great article that features my friend Susan that talks about an aspect of breast cancer we don’t usually think about.

Your thoughts?

    The poverty/education article was great. Thanks for sharing. I’ve seen amazing results in the education of children from lower income strata in our own country, and mostly from private organizations, because the publics just aren’t getting it done.

    An organization for which I have been a board member for more than 10 years, No Limits for Kids, uses theater to teach deaf and hard of children how to speak. When they come to us between 5 and 8 years old, they can’t speak or write their own names. Their vocabulary is barely 5 words. When they leave our program they’re reintegrated with mainstream schools at grade level, and many have gone onto graduate college. The executive director is now working on bringing similar education to the children of africa and the middle east through a program we’re launching soon. http://www.kidswithnolimits.org.
