Faced with most any challenge today, it makes sense to ask: What would Google do? In management, commerce, news, media, manufacturing, marketing, service industries, investing, politics, government, and even education and religion, answering that question is a key to navigating a world that has changed radically and forever.

That world is upside-down, inside-out, counterintuitive, and confusing. Who could have imagined that a free classified service could have had a profound and permanent effect on the entire newspaper industry, that kids with cameras and internet connections could gather larger audiences than cable networks could, that loners with keyboards could bring down politicians and companies, and that dropouts could build companies worth billions? They didn’t do it by breaking rules. They operate by new rules of a new age.

Gramática da língua portuguesa padrãoA Gramática da Língua Portuguesa Padrão, descritiva, normativa e crítica, é o resultado de décadas de pesquisa e elaboração, e contou com a grande experiência de magistério da autora. Amini Hauy sistematiza a tradicional teoria gramatical do Português acadêmico, com o objetivo de fornecer uma reflexão crítica sobre o estado atual da língua portuguesa no que ela tem de sistemático, de gramatical, mas talvez seu objetivo principal seja enfatizar a importância da norma padrão no livro didático, em sua função sociocultural. O corpus linguístico da obra privilegia as vertentes “literária” e “normativa”; na exemplificação das lições, entre os textos literários de várias épocas, transcritos no rigor da atual norma “culta”, destaca-se a Obra Poética de Fernando Pessoa, por representar o maior repositório de recursos sintático-semânticos da língua portuguesa, e entre os normativos, privilegiam-se os textos extraídos de documentos oficiais.

What It Means When Women in Tech Are Told They’re ‘Too Abrasive’ (Hint: It’s Got Something To Do With Sexism) 
In a recent study by linguist and startup CEO Kieran Snyder, she examined the kind of feedback men and women receive at tech companies. Snyder asked men and women in the tech industry to send her their performance reviews. She received 248 reviews from 105 men and 75 women. 
This is what she found: men and women receive different kinds of feedback. Women’s personalities were criticized much more frequently in performance reviews than men’s. Men were criticized for job performance, while women were criticized for not just their work output but for being ”abrasive" or having "the wrong tone". The results are so shocking, they seem skewed. 

Men received comments like “There were a few cases where it would have been extremely helpful if you had gone deeper into the details to help move an area forward.”
While women received comments like “Your peers sometimes feel that you don’t leave them enough room. Sometimes you need to step back to let others shine.”

Words like bossy, abrasive, strident, and aggressive are used to describe women’s behaviors when they lead; words like emotional and irrational describe their behaviors when they object. All of these words show up at least twice in the women’s review text I reviewed, some much more often. Abrasive alone is used 17 times to describe 13 different women. Among these words, only aggressive shows up in men’s reviews at all. It shows up three times, twice with an exhortation to be more of it.

This data validates women’s experience in STEM fields. They are stuck between a rock and hard place. Sheryl Sandberg tells them to Lean In, to speak up, and to be aggressive. While their peers and managers tell them to lean back, let others shine, and to be a little quieter. 
This is just one example of how the culture in STEM fields turns women away. While other factors keep the pipeline leaky, company culture plays a huge role. Women should be encourage to speak up, to be leaders. They should not turned down when they act like one.  It seems some tech companies have a long way to go to eliminate gender bias. 
And please ladies, don’t be discouraged by this study. Women in tech and other STEM fields are some of the most intelligent, driven, and successful people I know. Even when they face daunting obstacles. If anything this study gives validation and motivation to the need to change the way women in STEM are treated. Remember: It isn’t just you. Other people go through this too. And it doesn’t have to be this way.
