Re: I need a word...

Dealing with female teens have never been an easy task, there are too many feelings involved. Instead of finding the right words to get back to her, why don't you use a very different approach. Why don't you find the source of the conflict. Teenegers are rarely disrespectful without a reason. Female...

I sense that I am surrounded by the most honest, sociable, courteous, disciplined, and intelligent people on the planet, who amaze me at every turn with their artistic and creative endeavors, their rich literary traditions, their worldly knowledge, their grasp of the sciences and contemporary inter...

Re: Stupid question..

Mayonnaise: it's Chile's answer to healthy eating and a distinguishing national cuisine. As well as why every 15-year-old already wears a substantial spare tyre. Mayonnaise slathering also reduces the need to actually go through the motions of cooking something. Mayo: it's what's for lunch. http://...

Re: What small electronic devices are commonly used in Chile

I am conducting a university research paper on Chile. In this research paper I am attempting to determine the product acceptance of an alternative energy source that uses butane in place of standard batteries. In order for the replacement of batteries with butane to add value, I would need to know ...

Re: Discrimination during the recruitment process

You will see a similar attitude, and I believe closely related, in the way Chileans do business overall. Companies treat clients like employees, and employees will treat the company like the company works for them. I believe at the root of this cultural trait, is some Chilean male belief in entitle...

Re: Discrimination during the recruitment process

In the Civil War, the states lost their sovereignty and became subjects to the Union. It was a failed revolution against draconian federal intervention. Sure, slavery was wrong. But slavery was fading out on its own anyways . All the War did was add to the tension, make an issue out of something th...

Re: Discrimination during the recruitment process

And yes Tombi, I'm married, but that ain't the point. Women were decisive in electing Hoover, Bill Clinton, and Obama. Their voting patterns show that the candidates they support are taking away our rights and destroying mom and apple pie and everything else good in the world. Why "we" don't make a...

Re: Discrimination during the recruitment process

Seriously, you are surprised by this? Also, there is no civil rights at work in the States hiring policies, just a mountain of multi-billion dollar law suits that took at least 150 years to develop right back to the the good old days of slavery. American HR departments simply find polite ways to di...
