when all you gotta keep is strong,
move along move along like I know you do
and even when your hope is gone,
move along move along just to make it through
go on… when everything is wrong, we move along…..
Welcome, Antioch College alumni. It’s good to have you back in the village.
Over the past year, you’ve been, to many of us, models of courage, persistence and integrity. You’ve shown us how to think big ? very big. You inspire us with how much you want to save your college and how you don’t take no for an answer. Your deep love for Antioch College has helped us love it more. In an age of cynicism, you unabashedly care; in a climate of secrecy, you engage with honesty and directness. You have shown that the best case for saving Antioch College is that Antioch creates people like you.
This came through as a forward in my email. I don’t know its original author/source. Some of these stories are classics, others simply good examples.. but the last one kills me.
TRUST is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation.
A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call. She answered, “Public Utilities Board.” There was silence. She repeated, “PUB.” There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she heard a lady’s voice, “Oh, so this is PUB. Sorry , I got the number from my husband’s pocket but I do not know whose number it is.”
Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just “hello” instead of “PUB”.
This one makes me a bit sad. The last line makes the point, but it’s not about how the telephone operator answers the phone. There’s an existing problem, and either she’s being unreasonably suspicious and not communicating with him, or he’s been selfish or careless and has given her reason to be concerned. Either way….
This sounds like April fools but it’s not. today Ella H posted this http://www.dailykos.com/… about the sale of Antioch college. I am proposing that we, as kossacks, buy it! …
According to a comment below, the college is not actually for sale, but the current admins are trying actively to kill it so the assets can be sold. Accckkk!
DailyKos has always been a great community — a great site even before it was a full community — so it’s nice to see some attention there on this subject. Some good comments and a bit of background information on the situation of Antioch College and its destruction threatened by the University system it founded, so I won’t go into additional explanation here. It’s a pretty confusing situation, but the bottom line is that Antioch College should be saved, and the University system has not offered any reassurance that they are interested in the well-being and sustainability of the College as the bastion of liberal arts education that it has been for over 150 years.
Study Shows Males Commonly Mistake Sexual Intent seattle-pk writes “Males are apparently clueless when it comes to interpreting sexual intent from females…. If you’re a male who ever mistook the meaning of a barista’s smile, looks like you’re not alone.”
The news is not new. Guys misinterpret; girls are vague/confusing.
But.. sometimes a girl is not vague, and the guy does not misinterpret.
