They interviewed the parents, and it’s clear that the child had been growing up in sedentary environment that didn’t emphasize health. Parents of kids like this they show on the news are never marathon runners - they look exactly how you’d expect them to look - obese and lacking energy.
I don’t want to be part of this problem. I don’t want to be that parent. The one with the double chin and trash cans full of fast food wrappers.
My daughter is learning what is “normal” from Rod and me. I want this “normal” to be something that leads her to health. It should be more normal to eat a vegetable with dinner than to eat fast food in front of the TV for dinner. It should be more normal to play outside when we get home than to plop down on the couch. I should be more prepared to run a 5K than to eat a 72 oz. steak in one hour.
The Google I was passionate about was a technology company that empowered its employees to innovate. The Google I left was an advertising company with a single corporate-mandated focus. […] Suddenly, 20% meant half-assed. Google Labs was shut down. App Engine fees were raised. APIs that had been free for years were deprecated or provided for a fee. As the trappings of entrepreneurship were dismantled, derisive talk of the “old Google” and its feeble attempts at competing with Facebook surfaced to justify a “new Google” that promised “more wood behind fewer arrows.”
The days of old Google hiring smart people and empowering them to invent the future was gone. The new Google knew beyond doubt what the future should look like. Employees had gotten it wrong and corporate intervention would set it right again.
James Whitaker is the best. He’s my software testing mentor guru want to be like him guy.
