How to (professionally) miss a deadline

It happens to the best of us. Maybe accounting didn’t get you the numbers on time. Maybe the design work you thought would take you four hours is taking more like 14. Maybe Taco Tuesday turned into Food Poisoning Tuesday, and there’s just no way you can drag yourself to the office to finish Wednesday’s client report.

In any case, you’re going to miss a deadline, and you know your boss, your customer, or whoever else you owe your work to is not going to be excited.

As a writer and an editor, I’ve unfortunately been on both sides of the missed deadline dilemma. And here are a few things I’ve tried and seen that will help you get the extension you need while keeping your relationships intact.

5 Things About Slavery You Probably Didn’t Learn In Social Studies: A Short Guide To ‘The Half Has Never Been Told’

Edward Baptist’s new book, “The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery And The Making Of American Capitalism”, drew a lot of attention last month after the Economist said it was too hard on slave owners.

What you might not have taken away from the ensuing media storm is that “The Half Has Never Been Told” is quite a gripping read. Baptist weaves deftly between analysis of economic data and narrative prose to paint a picture of American slavery that is pretty different from what you may have learned in high school Social Studies class.

The whole thing is well worth reading in full. Baptist positions his book in opposition to textbooks that present slavery like a distant aberration of American history, cramming 250 years into a few chapters in a way “that cuts the beating heart out of the story.” To counter that image of history, Baptist devotes much of the book to depicting the lived experience of enslavement in a way that’s vivid and immediate.

The Best Asparagus Recipes You Can Eat This Spring

Even though it’s available all year long, asparagus can easily be considered the star of the spring season — that’s when it tastes the best. Steamed, boiled, sauteed, roasted, grilled — asparagus takes on different qualities, however you cook it. Roasting and grilling turns asparagus almost sweet. Steamed or boiled, asparagus retains the vegetable’s natural flavor.

For most preparations, tender asparagus spears are the way to go — their delicate texture makes them great for salads and even eaten raw. But the thicker ones do have their place; they stand up better to cooking methods like grilling.

Mediterranean in origin, asparagus is now grown in almost every corner of the world, including Mexico, Peru, China, and Chile, and then shipped to supermarkets everywhere. But you’ll never find fresher, tastier stalks than those sold in your local farmers’ markets.

The Merger of ISIS and al-Qaeda Could Cripple the Civilized World

Take a barbaric army, add strategic jihadists—and a new evil is born.

Organized and disciplined, ISIS is grabbing territory to build a state.

On their hit list—the state of Israel. 

As ISIS continues to advance on the Syrian town of Kobani and close in on Turkey’s border, experts in Islamic radical movements think the terror group may merge with its al-Qaeda mother organization soon. Together, the group would represent the greatest terror threat to the civilized world.

“I think Britain, Germany and France will witness significant attacks in their territories by the Islamic State. Al-Baghdadi [the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, otherwise known as ISIS] may reconcile with al-Zawhiri [the leader of the al-Qaeda central organization] to fight the crusader enemy. The attacks by the United States and her allies will unite the two groups,” said Hisham al-Hashimi, an Iraqi researcher who just finished writing a book about ISIS based on his unique access to the organization’s documents and years of research and advising Iraqi security forces.

Kimberly Hill Commented on Bill Maher show excerpt:
 .

Wendell: fantastically stated . Luv it. So glad he spoke our truth.

White woman: slick tried to belittle what he said by getting into domestic violence. This is not a topic to shift gears on simply one that is of no importance to her.

Bill maher: an advocate to speak against the bible . He understands or agreed with Wendell. I just hope he does not influence others to deny the bible because he acknowledges our experience.

Thanks for sharing I had no idea Wendell had it in him

I’m not so sure if we learned from whites only to be violent . I believe being the recipient of their violence  against us naturally will perpetuate the violence but we have fought and killed one another and have a perpetual psyche of separatism from before we came here. When we were in Africa. Coupled together with the racism and the violence you have us now!

At 17, Setting Off Protests That Roil Hong Kong

The slight teenager with heavy rectangular glasses and a bowl cut stood above the ocean of protesters who had engulfed downtown Hong Kong. His deep voice was drowned out by cheers, but the crowd did not mind: They knew him and his message. It was Joshua Wong, a 17-year-old student activist who has been at the center of the democracy movement that has rattled the Chinese government’s hold on this city.

“When I heard the national anthem starting to play, I certainly did not feel moved so much as angry,” Mr. Wong said a few hours later, after a protest at a flag-raising ceremony on Wednesday morning to mark the Chinese National Day holiday. “When it tells you, ‘Arise! All those who refuse to be slaves!’ — why is our treatment today any different from the slaves?”
