I am an independent contractor but work in the physical office full time. The office celebrates birthdays of each employee, owner and independent contractor with a cake and a card. In my first two years with this firm, my wife reminded the office manager of my birth date. This year, my third year, my birthday came and went about two months ago without any office acknowledgment. I would like to say something, but I am concerned that it is (1) too late and (2) it would come off as sour grapes or, worse, make me appear hurt and needy (the nature of my position requires me to maintain a certain air of confidence).

When they aren’t working on Scratch, students can use the Dash and Dot robots — programmable robots that kids can make move, dance and sing — provided by the company Wonder Workshop. Irvine said parents see confidence levels rise in their kids’ learning skills. “The kids see that computer science has real-world applications,” he said. “Then they see that they can do it and they show their parents. It is really just great to see them learn and grow as people.”.

You know in advance that it’s going to be pretty — the exhibit at San Francisco’s Legion of Honor of hats from France’s “belle époque” at the turn of the 20th century, along with paintings by Degas and other masters of the women who wore, designed and sold them. But there’s more to “Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade” than feathered, flowered and beribboned hats and colorful paintings with fluffy details. It’s more thoughtful than casual museum-goers might expect. The show delves into social and commercial changes, the roles of well-known “modistes” who designed the hats and the small army of unknown women who made them, and the millions of birds who gave their lives for the feathered trim.
