Рядом с нами продается дом за 269K, похожий в декабре продался за 340K, если верить zillow. Ужас.
Но домик неплохой, сама б купила, если бы сейчас искала.

Thoughts From the Daughter of a Chinese Mother

If you are not tired by Chinese mother discussion.

From a daughter of Chinese mother:

...I don't know anyone who doesn't carry around one scar or another from childhood, who wasn't wounded in some way in the course of their upbringing. But I grew up around lot of other Chinese-American kids who were pushed to succeed and had parents that were various shades of Chua. Not every kid holds up to that kind of parental pressure. Asian-American females in particular are especially prone to depression and suicide; scientists have linked that in part to cultural pressures to succeed. And herein lies one of the most salient perils of buying into the model minority myth, a theory that posits that Asian-Americans owe their relative economic successes to cultural values prioritizing academic rigor, hard work, individual responsibility, and family cohesion.
...
You can be a Chinese mother without being Chua's brand of Chinese mother, my mother wanted me to know. Read it as one extreme woman's memoir, she seemed to say, not as a parenting manual. Except for the parts where Chua talks about how important it is for children to respect and honor their parents and take care of them. And the sections where she points out that rote repetition and dogged perseverance are your only sure ticket to success.

Вопрос меня уже мучает пол дня. В словаре посмотрела, но не нашла. Как по-русски, то, что по-английски называется button, которое прикалывается к одежде?

Новый Шерлок Холмс (который BBC) на PBS очень прикольный и смешной, в HD хорошо смотрится. Ватсон лапочка, где я его раньше видела?

If you want your male colleagues start a conversation with you leave a copy of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo on your desk.

And how would you do it with Kindle or iPad?

Вчера в NY Times была статья про то, что, по результатам исследований, полоскание теплой водаой с солью помогает облегчить симптомы простуды. Так что бабушку надо слушать.
