Viv Mcwaters

I plucked this quote from a recent newspaper interview just before her latest play opened in Melbourne. When I was in High School, I had an English teacher who stood out from the rest. She seemed not to do the standard stuff, made classes interesting, and took us on excursions to Melbourne (in those days a big deal for a 15-year-old living in the country) and generally igniting, at least in me, a love of language and writing.

That I liked her, liked her feist, her sheer pluck at showing up more than a century after she’d died. Page 8, " The Persuasion " I didn’t move. I remember wondering if I should stand but couldn’t.

Dan Pallotta at a TED talk on why overhead matters in non-profits. Here is the essence of the talk: Non-profits exist to alleviate social problems for which there is no market. Working at the level of causes means needing to take work to scale.
