- "For Sale On the Web: You!"-- This All Tech Considered post hit perhaps a little too close to home. I got it, and I'm thinking about it as I type. I know that I have gone down the road of shameless self-promo online, and it's certainly something to be aware of.
- "Anti-Social Networks? We're Just As Cliquey Online"-- Another piece about our online lives, this time from All Things Considered. I appreciated this short piece, especially after having been unfriended on Facebook by a college friend after our different political opinions became too challenging.
- "Peggy Orenstein: "Cinderella Ate My Daughter""-- The interview with author Orenstein on The Diane Rehm Show is most definitely worth the hour commitment to listen to it in its entirety. She hits on many points from her book (which I'm HIGHLY recommending!), and I just love hearing authors talk about their work.
- "Saving Our Daughters From An Army Of Princesses"-- If you've only got a few minutes and are interested in the perspectives of the author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter, then this All Things Considered story is perfect for you.
- "Why Keeping Little Girls Squeaky Clean Could Make Them Sick"-- From Shots: The NPR Health Blog, and interesting and related piece about the different expectations for girls and boys in play and cleanliness and how it may affect their overall health later in life. Very thought provoking.
- "Why Some People Evade Colds And Others Don't"-- This Morning Edition piece says that most people spend a year of their life sick with a cold. Wow. 'Tis the season, right?
- "What 'Ah-Choo!' Can Do For You"-- The figures about the forcefulness of our sneezes alone is worth the click over to this follow-up Morning Edition story!
- "Certain Breast Cancer Patients May Nix Node Surgery"-- Hot off the presses this morning, a new study in breast cancer treatments is making the news and could affect how women approach their post-diagnosis care.
From the web, to our pink-obsessed girls, to our health, NPR had a lot that piqued my interest this week!
