U S CITIZEN RALLIES FROM OFF PACE TO TAKE $58,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE AT 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN HILLSIDE TURF; DESORMEAUX & O’NEILL TEAM FOR 1 ½ LENGTH WIN

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 9, 2015)–U S Citizen rallied on the far outside to take Friday’s $58,000 allowance feature by 1 ½ lengths under Kent Desormeaux. Trained by Doug O’Neill, the 6-year-old gelding by Proud Citizen covered 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in 1:13.04.Breaking from post five in a field of seven older horses, U S Citizen was unhurried early and was next to last while five-wide crossing the dirt at the top of the stretch behind fractions of 22.22, 44.52 and 1:07.18.“It’s such an adrenaline race,” said Desormeaux in reference to negotiating the unique hillside layout. “He broke a bit aggressively but once I got him covered he calmed down. That was all the way around the left-handed bend. After getting over the dirt, I presented him and he took off. It was at that point that I became a spectator–just like the fans and (I) was watching the (Infield) jumbo-tron.”The third choice in the betting at 3-1, U S Citizen paid $8.40, $3.80 and $2.60. Owned by Dennis O’Neill and Joseph Besecker, U S Citizen improved his overall record to 21-3-6-4, and with the winner’s share of $34,800, hiked his earnings to $168,635.“He’s so honest, this horse,” said O’Neill. “He likes the hill. Sometimes, on that crossover from the turf to the dirt, horses will overreact, but he just skips over it. It was beautiful seeing Kent get along with him so well.”Ridden by Mike Smith, 9-5 favorite Skylander was just up for the place, finishing a head in front of Conscience and Drayden Van Dyke. Skylander paid $3.40 and $2.60.The second choice at 2-1, Conscience paid $2.60 to show.First post time at Santa Anita on Saturday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

The Fear of What If

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now If you’re going to learn and grow, you need to listen to things with which you don’t agree. You are going to have to suspend your own perspective and step into that of someone who thinks very differently than you do. The single greatest reason most people don’t is fear.The fear that stops you from opening your mind to, at least temporarily, embrace the outlook or viewpoint of another is based on What Ifs you can’t bear to answer:What if I have been wrong all of this time? I’ve spoken out loudly about how right I was. How can I undo all of that?What if the understanding that I was wrong makes me face what I need to do to be right? I have always done things the way I do them now. It would be a tremendous burden to change the way I do them now.What if embracing another viewpoint, even temporarily, makes me realize how wrong the person with that viewpoint is? What if that realization dramatically changes my relationship with that person? What if embracing a new way of thinking means that I will have to confront that the way I’ve been doing business, or my company has been doing business, is dreadfully wrong and holding all of us back? What if that realization means that I must face extraordinary financial challenges in order to fix what is wrong? Where will that money come from?What if embracing an alternative viewpoint, even temporarily, tears my world asunder because everything I am is founded on the viewpoint I have now?Embracing an alternative outlook temporarily may not mean that you need to transform your approach or your life, but it may. And the fear of what may happen is what holds so many people back from exploring the “what ifs?” that could make them so much better.last_img read more

Womens coworking space The Wing set to open first location in Canada

first_imgTORONTO – A co-working space for women that’s drawn the ardour of thousands of Instagrammers and the attention of celebs including Jennifer Lawrence and Lena Dunham is set to expand to Canada.The Wing, a New York-based networking and social club, said Tuesday that Toronto is among the six new locations joining its burgeoning pastel-hued chain.The female-focused company is part of a wave of modern sororities geared to female entrepreneurs, merging a fierce can-do motto with feminist ideals tailor-made for a generation of self-starters.It joins several other Canadian ventures that similarly put career women in their sightlines, including Toronto’s exclusive Verity Club and its luxury spa, the co-working and wellness space Shecosystem with its yoga classes and Madonna dance parties, and the pretty and perky penthouse space Make Lemonade. Other spaces include Montreal’s LORI hub, which stands for Ladies of Real Influence.“It’s important to have the space where we all feel comfortable and that this is ours, that we have ownership as well,” Rachel Kelly, Make Lemonade’s founder and owner, says of her inspiration.“If you start exploring a couple of the co-working spaces you’ll notice there is quite a male-dominated culture in a lot of these spaces and that presence is quite overpowering,” she adds.“Just the overall vibe — the bro vibe — is a big thing.”The Wing’s promotional material includes the taglines: “A home base for women on their way,” “Your throne away from home” and “Say goodbye to the old boys’ club.”It was founded by PR exec Audrey Gelman and business partner Lauren Kassan, and was inspired by the women’s social clubs of the early 20th century.It launched in Manhattan’s Flatiron district in October 2016, expanding to SoHo a year later. Then came a third spot in the DUMBO neighbourhood of Brooklyn in February, and a fourth heads to Washington D.C. this spring.All locations are created by an all-female design and architecture team and feature a menu of food, wine and cocktails created by female chefs, sommeliers and mixologists. There are also showers and lactation rooms.The Wing says its first Canadian outpost is slated to open in early 2019, the address yet to be determined.Other new locations include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Williamsburg (Brooklyn), and London.There certainly appears to be demand in Canada for such a venture.Twenty-two-year-old entrepreneur Kim Kirton says she joined Make Lemonade after souring on more traditional co-working spaces.“Sometimes I would feel uncomfortable just working, just the way people would kind of look at me,” says Kirton, who too often found professional networking opportunities devolve into social pitches.“(Men were) just coming up and usually asking, ‘Oh, what are your plans today?’ or, ‘What are you doing after work?’ versus ‘Oh, what do you do for work?’”Kirton doesn’t suggest she’s experienced any misconduct, stressing that her concerns were primarily focused on finding the best place to run her online wardrobe business, UnCo.“I have a startup here in the city and I’m trying to be like every other entrepreneur and trying to grow my business.”Although none of the members are men, Kelly says they’re certainly welcome to join Make Lemonade, as long as they adhere to an “inclusivity mandate” that bans “sexist, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, classist or otherwise discriminatory language.”Since launching last September, Kelly says she’s drawn 80 members in various fields including editing, food, publishing, law, fashion and tech. In addition to workspaces, she offers mentoring, workshops, and mixers.But some question whether women-targeted initiatives are the answer.Sarah Kaplan, director of the Institute for Gender + the Economy at the University of Toronto, worries they push women to the sidelines, instead of levelling the playing field.“I’m not a big fan, personally, of cloistered solutions,” she says.“I’m sure it will satisfy the needs of some people who feel like it’s just a more pleasant or safer or more conducive (place) to the kind of work that they want to do. But is this a huge market opportunity because women are so different from men? No. It’s just because the world of work is so gendered masculine that I think the only solution people can come up with is to cloister and I don’t think that’s the right solution.“I think we have to change the world of work. But that’s a bigger project.”Initiatives such as implicit-bias training and diversity workshops clearly have not fixed organizational culture, Kaplan adds.“You have to actually change your processes and practices, you have to change how you think about the work, not just for women but also for men,” she says, seeing the need for men to participate equally at home.She also says corporate and full-time positions must be more accommodating to workers — often women — who need greater flexibility because of family obligations. Many have left the workforce or opted for “Plan B” ventures that have given rise to spaces like The Wing.“They still want to make money and they still want to participate in the economy but they can’t,” says Kaplan, bemoaning a lack of supports such as onsite daycare and lactation rooms.As a young woman, Kirton suggests self-esteem can hold back women, too, admitting, “Outside of certain spaces I definitely feel my self-doubt a lot bigger.”“Men sometimes are a little bit more vocal in their capabilities … or have a high level of confidence. Whereas women, not so much, so I can see why it could be intimidating.”Kaplan doesn’t see the same issues, pointing instead to “a world that isn’t going to fund you.”“Women are plenty confident, it’s just that they’re beaten down,” she says.“We’ve moved beyond mentoring, we know that that’s just giving free advice. What you really need is sponsorship, you need people who are going to stick their neck out, who are going to put their money where their mouth is.”last_img read more
