Following Your Star: 4 Things You Know If You Want To Try and Break LA

There are some, however, for whom acting is an all consuming passion.

Wikimedia Commons Image
It’s been a few months now since a Google engineer was fired for distributing a memo in which he, essentially, claimed that women are not suited to the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) field. The memo he produced, which cited a number of scientific studies, has created an endless litany of thinkpieces both agreeing and disagreeing with the conclusions that James Damore drew. In fact, the authors of many of the studies he cited have outright said that Damore was incorrect in his conclusions.
Nevertheless, the leaked memo helped to ignite a debate. It has been known for years that the figures for women working in STEM are pretty terrible, especially in technology and engineering. As a result, many companies have instituted policies that allow them to encourage women into these fields-- sometimes in the form of positive discrimination, and sometimes through offering additional support.
Depressingly, there has been a backlash against such hir…

Having a pet can be a great blessing. Whether you have children or not, you can often find that your cat or dog feels like your baby. So much so, they’re often your first or last child! And when this is the case, they’re going to be just as integral to your everyday lives as anyone else in the family. You care for them, you look after them, you love them; just as you would a child. So when life changes come around, you have to make sure that you think about your pets during the process, just as you would your child.

And there’s no exception to this when it comes to moving house. We all know that moving can be one of the most stressful things you can do in life. Having to get everything you own together, pack it all up, and then move it and unpack it again someplace new, can be super difficult to take on - especially in a short space of time. It can also be quite unsettling. Moving is something that young children don’t always understand, because leaving their home can feel alien to …
