Woman live tweets IBM execs discussing why they don’t hire women, tries not to throw up

Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.

Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.

But wait, there’s more Follow micdotcom

THE CUCKOO’S CALLING is off to a solid start. I was really avoiding this title for awhile, but the detective genre fan in me knew that I was going to need to read it. Sometimes when things have a lot of hype around it, I like to wait until it’s died off a bit so my opinions aren’t influenced.

Even if I had just picked this book up and didn’t know who wrote it, I think I would have kept reading. It definitely provides you with a good hook.

Finished SONG OF ACHILLES by Madeline Miller this morning. I was incredibly close to finishing last night, but everyone I cared for was already dead and I just didn’t want the story to be completely finished yet.
This tells the story of The Iliad from the perspective of Patroclus, Achilles’ love and best friend. While the Trojan War is definitely the main plot mover, it read more like the love story between Achilles and Patroclus as they go from children, to young men, to weathered soldiers.  The writing was quite beautiful, and I really enjoyed the new perspective Miller provided to such a well known tale. 
If you enjoy Greek mythology, or just enjoy a tragic love story between two ill-fated people give this a read. 
GoodReads Rating: 4 stars (I really liked it.)
