My favorite response came from Wayne A. Hochwarter, a professor of management at Florida State University. It's all about communication, he said. Maybe you're answering emails at 10 p.m., but your manager doesn't expect you to be on call at all hours. You may have inadvertently communicated the wrong message: that you don't mind the infringement on your personal time. It's possible to pull back - if you are clear about how you plan to handle their needs during the workday, he said.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has released Bullying in Schools: An Overview
This bulletin examines the connection between different types and frequencies of bullying, truancy, and student achievement, and whether students’ engagement in school mediates these factors. It discusses the results of three studies conducted in 2007 at the National Center for School Engagement, and compares these results with those from a Swedish study. The authors conclude that victimization in the form of bullying can distance students from learning. Schools can overcome this negative effect if they adopt strategies that engage students in their work, creating positive learning environments that produce academic achievement.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.
As they lay down for the night,
Holmes said: "Watson, look up into the sky and tell me what you see."
Watson said: "I see millions and millions of stars."
Holmes: "And what does that tell you?"
Watson: "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Theologically it tells me that God is great and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically it tells me that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"
Holmes: "Somebody stole our tent."
Lesson: It is always easier to see what is in front of us than to notice that which is missing. All of the physical attractions of the world are "dangled" in front of our eyes. We see the new cars on the roads, we see the latest fashions on others, we see all of the advertisements. What don't we see? What we don't see is what is missing - solutions and exceptions.
