Infographic: Mental Health and Gender


Mental Health and Gender

This infographic goes beyond simply being attractive and
provides a wealth of information on a rarely discussed topic:
how depression affects women differently than men.


#infographic #mentalHealth #womenAndMen


Women suffer from depression twice as often as men do.

The diagnostic criteria for depression are identical for either sex, but women that have depression experience anxiety, guilt, increased appetite and sleep, co-morbid eating disorders and weight gain more frequently. During a lifetime, depression happens in about 20% of women in comparison to 10% of men.




SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE: The answer? Follow God’s scriptural laws as intended



These rules are all found in the Bible you have in your house, and they are very specific about marriage… being a rather transactional and fluid concept, much as the woman was in that era.

perhaps the ‘Will of God’ angle isn’t the best way
to cloak supporting discrimination or fear.

Marriage, as we think we know it,
is only about 100 years along.

When considering all that was in and out of favor in
the 6,000 years of human existence, it’s easier
to see that marriage has survived much
more real and serious  alterations.

If two people love one another,
wouldn’t anyone want them to be happy,
together & equal among everyone else?

The Deadliest Animal in the World



What would you say is the most dangerous animal on Earth? Sharks? Snakes? Humans?

Of course the answer depends on how you define dangerous. Personally I’ve had a thing about sharks since the first time I saw Jaws. But if you’re judging by how many people are killed by an animal every year, then the answer isn’t any of the above. It’s mosquitoes.

When it comes to killing humans, no other animal even comes close. Considering their impact, you might expect mosquitoes to get more attention than they do.

Take a look:

  • Sharks kill fewer than a dozen people every year and in the U.S. they get a week dedicated to them on TV every year.
  • Mosquitoes kill 50,000 times as many people, but if there’s a TV channel that features Mosquito Week, I haven’t heard about it.

Jonathan Bates: The Hundred Thousandaire


Fortune Magazine // September 27, 1999

Your intrepid blog host & writer was featured in the 1999 edition of Fortune Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 issue, with the headline “The Hundred Thousandaire”… read on to see why it was appropriate given the timing of the issue:

San Francisco, 1999:

Working at the center of the Internet world, youthful hubris leaving no doubt that all of us in our 20s were changing the world forever. It was at an endless circuit of launch parties for startups that a friend introduced Jodi, at her first event like this.

As I had liberally made use of the open bar by then, I started riffing like a Boor about dot-commers inheriting rock-star status; changing the world more than electricity; just the worst. Jodi seemed to get that I was “playing” the role of total doofus, not living as one. Ran into her twice more, talked shop.

A few weeks later, several big-shot types I knew emailed to ask why an editor in NYC was asking about me. I didn’t know.

Within 3 days, I got a call from NYC: Fortune had a photographer en route to SF, and would be shooting me in 12 hours. Wouldn’t tell me why… Then a month passes, and every one on my team had a copy of Fortune’s issue on the 40 most influential Internet players under 40. When folks kept staring at me at a bistro over lunch, I asked my top guy what was up.

He showed me this:
