It’s Best To….

As usual, it’s best to check our assumptions.

No More Gender Bias?

This quote is from a June 2, 2014 article at Smithsonian.com:

Associating women with weakness may be a misguided, annoying stereotype, but itโ€™s also putting people in danger when hurricanes with feminine names arrive. More people die during hurricanes with female names than male, according to a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. And our gender biases are probably to blame, say the scientists behind the findings.
Our Gender Biases May Be Making Hurricanes With Female Names More Deadly

Andy and I both saw that article when it first came out, and we laughed that people would actually think a hurricane was less powerful just because it had a female name. Presumably in these post-Katrina, post-Irma days that bias no longer exists.

Roadwork

Andy, Orlando and Larry did a lot of roadwork this past weekend. Andy left the house at 7 Friday and Saturday mornings, returned home 6:30 pm Friday, 7:30 pm Saturday. Sunday was a bit easier, he left at 7 am and was back by 5.

We’re going up for a picnic supper today so I can see the changes.

Growing up, or Not

I’m still with Earl. And with Arthur C. Clarke — his epitaph for himself was,

He never grew up; but he never stopped growing.

That’s me too. ๐Ÿ™‚
