Marissa Mayer, the superwoman behind Yahoo.


Nicolas Carlson from Business Insider has written a very insightful article on Marissa Mayer.

This article covers her early years as a student growing up. Getting her job at Google. Doing what she’s good at until she got demoted. But the demotion actually help shaped her into taking on new challenges in becoming the CEO of Yahoo! while having a baby.

Besides covering aspects of her life. It also talks about the struggles Yahoo! is facing and also the meticulous process in deciding who will be the next CEO of Yahoo! between Mayer or Levinsohn.

My favorite part of this article also made me laugh. Below is the excerpt.

Mayer heard him out, taking notes the whole time.
Within 24 hours, Mayer let Heckman know that she’d canceled all his deals and that his services were no longer needed by Yahoo.
Heckman flew to Ibiza, Spain for a 30-day vacation.

I can’t help but laughed out loud at the last line. A 30- day vacation was needed for being fired!

Reading the article also helped me understand what do people do most on their mobile.

The results made her laugh.
She learned that after activities like calling people, texting, and maps, the main things people do on their phones everyday are: check email, check weather, get news, get stock quotes, check sports scores, get entertainment news, share photos, communicate with groups, and ask questions.

So that’s what we all do on our mobiles?

The last bit that I liked about the article was how mobile startups are being bought over by silicon valley companies.

Yahoo lacked the mobile talent to staff such a group, so Mayer spent $200 million at the end of 2012 and through August 2013 acquiring more than 20 mobile startups. In almost every case, Yahoo would shut down the startup’s product, sign its engineering and product development people to two- and four-year contracts, and integrate them into Cahan’s team.

This is how you become rich overnight!

Where did all the gentlemen go?


noun /ˈjentlmən/
gentlemen, plural

A chivalrous, courteous, or honorable man

There was a period in time where women rarely had to open doors. Where did all the gentlemen go? Gentlemen died when women start fighting for equality.Through time, women rise above men and became stronger than men in some cases. This indirectly resulted in the lost of ladies and affected the death of gentlemen. If there’s no ladies why would we need gentlemen?

Men learn that ladies do not want to be deemed as the weaker sex. They want equality, they want power, they want voice. Generation after generation, this made men forget to teach their boys how to be a gentleman. The art of being a gentleman slowly died off and ladies continue to reign on as they became more and more capable.

But, this is no excuse for man not to be gentleman. Have you notice why ladies always find the older guys more charming? It’s because they might be the last of gentleman. We should bring back the art of gentleman. Ladies or not, every woman deserves a gentleman.

Men, it’s time to get your hands dirty. Answer the call of manhood. Be a gentleman.

“There was a period in time where women rarely had to open doors. Men, it’s time to get your hands dirty. Answer the call of manhood.”


Perks of being pretty while driving.

If you remembered, back in May I posted a video about a girl in UK who proved that pretty girls have it easy. Here’s a true story about my friend’s encounter.

So my friend was driving in the afternoon. She made a mistake at the traffic lights and caused another car to emergency brake into a slight spun. Cars are fine and both are unhurt. She was a little frightened because she knew it was her fault. More fear induced when my friend saw the spun car’s door sprung opened and this man furiously jumped out with testosterone so pumped ready for a fight.

He dash towards my friend’s car. When he reached my friend’s driver door, he still couldn’t see who the driver was until my friend wind down her window due to heavy tinting. In a split second, like a raging bull turned into a timid mice he said –

(Are you alright miss?)

“It’s amazing what a pretty face with boobs can do.”
