“Hot Child in the City, Running Wild Looking Pretty”–Nick Gilder It’s been a while since I got up on my feminist high horse.

Where The Boys Are…And Not The Girls: Tales from the 2012 JP Morgan Healthcare Conference

JP Morgan by the bay

I set off for five straight days at the annual JP Morgan healthcare conference last Monday, but on the way drove the carpool to my daughter’s high school that morning in a last ditch attempt to act like a responsible and caring parent.

It's Different for Girls

If you opened the newspaper and saw an article that said drugs were in short supply and thus their street cost is skyrocketing, causing buyers to go deep into the black market and overseas to replenish their stores, what would immediately come to mind?  Pablo Escobar?
