Carrie Underwood’s Husband Wishes Her a Happy Birthday — and Teases Her for Throwback Hairstyle

Mike Fisher came up with a very unique way of celebrating his wife Carrie Underwood’s birthday this year.

Sharing an image on social media of the 35-year-old rocking a very teased and curly ‘do, Fisher gently teased his wife about the throwback photo.

“Happy birthday to an incredible wife and an amazing mom with killer hair :)” he wrote.

“All kidding aside you’re a blessing to Izzy and I everyday,” he added. “Love you @carrieunderwood.”

The pair are parents to son Isaiah Michael, who turned 3 in February.

But Underwood didn’t seem to mind her husband’s playful joke, commenting on the photo, “You just can’t let some things go, can ya?”

“Hey, you marry a girl from the South, you get a lifetime subscription to Elnett…mmmkay?” she added, referencing a type of hairspray from L’Oreal.

This silly birthday messages comes a few weeks after the county superstar and the former hockey player, 37, were hit with split rumors.

Addressing the speculation on his Instagram account, Fisher assured a fan who wrote that she was “praying for you and Carrie” that the pair’s relationship was stronger than ever.

“We’ve never been better. Thanks,” he wrote.

Though their relationship is going strong, Underwood and Fisher — who wed in 2010— have indeed had a trying few months.

The “Blown Away” singer has been staying under the radar since she had a “hard fall” on the steps outside their home in November 2017 , leaving her with a broken wrist and around 50 stitches to her face.

The American Idol alum has been keeping her fans posted on her progress, however, and Fisher has been by his wife’s side during her recovery.

Seasons Greetings! Pregnant Khloé Kardashian Wishes Fans a Merry Christmas While Showing off Her 23-Week Bump

Pregnant Khloé Kardashian is celebrating her first Christmas as a mom-to-be!

After Kardashian, 33, confirmed she’s expecting their first child, the reality star showed off her baby bump for the second time five days later on Monday as a holiday gift to her fans and followers. She and NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson debuted her baby bump on Dec. 20.

“Merry Christmas!! May you sparkle and shine this festive season, may all of your wishes and dreams come true. I pray that we all may feel this happiness all year round. God bless you! #BabyBump,” Kardashian captioned the photo of herself from momager Kris Jenner‘s annual Christmas Eve party.

“I’ll be 6 months next week,” she told a fan on Twitter.

Khloé and fellow mom-to-be Kylie Jenner celebrated Christmas morning at sister Kourtney Kardashian’s house with all their siblings, including Rob KardashianKim Kardashian West and Kendall Jenner.

On the 13th day of the countdown, Khloé made her KarJenner Christmas card debut. Holding her 13-month-old niece Dream Renée, she kept any semblance of a baby bump under wraps in a white shirt and jeans that match her sisters’ outfits.

PEOPLE first broke the news back in September that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star and Thompson — who have been dating since September 2016 —  were expecting a baby together.

Multiple sources confirmed in late October that they will welcome a son together in early 2018. Thompson, 26, also has a 1-year-old son named Prince Oliver from a previous relationship with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig.

“My greatest dream realized,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram alongside a bump picture in her baby announcement. “We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient.”

She continued, “I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love!”

“Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we’ve been keeping this but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us. Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life!”

Kardashian revealed on her website and app that she’ll be celebrating Christmas early with Thompson since the Cleveland Cavaliers will be on the road.

“Then, I’ll fly back to a few days before my family’s annual Christmas Eve party,” she said. “My mom takes full control of Christmas Eve since she’s been throwing the party for so long, so I let her do her thing!”

“On Christmas morning, the whole family is together with the little kids — usually at Kourt‘s — opening presents and chilling in our pajamas,” she continued. “After that, we’re all going to do our own thing the rest of the day. So after I cook breakfast for everyone, I’m doing absolutely nothing and I’m very much looking forward to that, LOL!”

Kardashian tweeted on Dec. 21 that she “can’t wait” to pass on the holiday traditions to her “little one, one day.”

“Khloé is ecstatic about being pregnant,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “She has been fine with being out of the spotlight. It’s like she realized that she needed a break. The baby is a huge blessing in many ways.”

The source also said Kardashian and Thompson have a “great relationship,” and the mom-to-be “couldn’t be happier” with the basketball player.

Kardashian “still has a couple of months to go” in her pregnancy and is planning a baby shower for the new year, according to the source, who added: “She wants to give birth in Los Angeles, so her family can be around.”

You get three wishes,” the genie said. Eighteen-year-old Marvin Harper was a good kid: He didn’t make trouble for other people, and he tutored Anna Kay in Trig for free. Admittedly, Marvin didn’t cause trouble for others because he couldn’t. At five-foot-two, Marvin was always the kid bullied, never the bullyboy. As for Anna Kay, she was a big-breasted cheerleader, and Marvin figured tutoring was the only way he could spend time near his goddess. Then he inherited a genie lamp. Now goody-two-shoes Marvin Harper had Choices to make. Marvin also was given a mystery. What was the rule that the genie couldn’t tell Marvin about, till after he’d made his three wishes? “What is your first wish, Master?” Note: This book has four full-color illustrations inside.

John Krasinski Wishes More Parents Were Honest About How Hard It Is

John Krasinski knows you can’t totally prepare for parenthood.

In an interview with Today, the actor opened up about what he’s learned raising his two daughters ― Hazel, 2, and Violet, 6 months ― with his wife Emily Blunt. 

“You can read all the books you want ― I certainly thought I was prepared because I had such amazing parents growing up,” Krasinski recalled. “I just figured, I’ll just do exactly what they did. And then you realize that moment-to- moment, you don’t know what they did because there is no manual. There’s no exact way to go about things.” 

He added, “You’re just trying. There’s no perfection. There’s no school. There’s no defined way to go about it. You’re just learning.”

Krasinski said fatherhood has given him a newfound appreciation for his own parents and their dedication to raising him well. He said having kids has also given him a different perspective on his pre-child life. 

“I think the biggest question I have is: what did I do with my life before this?” the actor said. “What did I do with all the time that I had on my hands? I think it’s certainly a full-on job, and something that I enjoy so much, but I really do look back and think, ‘Was I just the dude who ate potato chips and movies all day?’”

Now hat he’s in the throes of parenting, Krasinski said he believes it’s important to be honest about the good, bad and ugly sides of taking care of kids. 

“I’m a big fan of being open about the truth and how you really feel, and not putting on a pretty face for everybody,” he explained. “No one really tells you that it’s hard and there are sleepless nights. Kids get sick, kids fall down and get hurt, and all these things are really intense and really emotionally difficult ― and you hurt for them more than you hurt for yourself.”

Krasinski said he appreciated hearing a friend who recently became a parent describe how difficult the journey has been so far.

Said the actor, “I think there’s a sense of relief hearing that it’s hard for other people because you’re all in this fight together.”

Special Collegial Wishes for Actress Cherry Jones

2016-12-06-1481056981-8296338-cherryjones_customc4e22b94ad2170fe658ddd08eb680b490642d548s300c85.jpg

ZEALnyc, December 6, 2016

Cherry Jones, one of the great actors of our day, recently celebrated a milestone birthday (November 21) and we at ZEALnyc saluted and paid tribute to her on this happy occasion. She has been nominated five times for a Tony Award, winning twice — first in 1995 for her staring role in the Lincoln Center Theater’s revival of The Heiress, and then again in 2005 for her portrayal of Sister Aloysius in John Patrick Shanley’s play Doubt. Her career has spanned the trifecta of mediums encompassing stage, film and television, while being honored along the way with numerous awards documenting her excellence in these fields; she has received an Emmy Award, numerous Drama Desk Awards (in addition to her Tony Awards and nominations), as well as receiving a special GLADD Media Award.

2016-12-06-1481057181-6607270-CherryJoneswinsEmmy20091024x576.jpg

After receipt of 2009 Emmy Award

While her training and earliest work had its roots on the stage, she has navigated effortlessly back and forth from film and television beginning as early as the late 80’s with a large filmography that includes The Horse Whisperer, Erin Brockovich, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Ocean’s Twelve, to name only a few. Newer audiences may be more familiar with her work as President Allison Taylor on the hit television series 24 and most recently through guest appearances on the award-winning series Transparent (Amazon Video). Ms. Jones expressed her joy at the diversity of her work in a New York Times article earlier this year: “I’m Having the Kind of Year Actors Live For.”

We are very happy to share well-wishes from a few of the artists and administrators who have been fortunate to cross paths and work with Ms. Jones over the years. Their words speak for themselves and provide the strongest testament and endorsement of a great artist. We’re all looking forward to many years and many wonderful performances ahead.

André Bishop, Producing Artistic Director, Lincoln Center Theater, NYC

Cherry Jones is one of America’s finest and most admired actors. I say “finest” because of her talent, her versatility, her emotional depth and her intelligence. She walks onstage and everything suddenly seems brighter. And it is – because of her. I say “admired” because she is kind and caring, a great company member, and unafraid to speak her mind and express her doubts and fears. She is not closed off as a human being, she is open to everything around her. And she has, for all her success and all the respect she garners, a lovely modesty, a sort of secure insecurity.

When Lincoln Center Theater offered Cherry the leading role of Catherine Sloper in The Heiress — a beautiful, sensitive, and ultimately strong-willed young woman — Cherry received the offer and the script and automatically assumed she was being offered the role of Catherine’s protective, dotty elderly aunt! It never occurred to her that she was being asked to play the lead. Of course her performance as Catherine made history and she has continued to make history ever since.

She is a great artist and a great human being, and everyone at Lincoln Center Theater (especially me!) is in her thrall and always will be.

Marc Masterson, Artistic Diretor, South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa, CA

I have known Cherry since we were both frightened children in conservatory at Carnegie Mellon trying to bury our southern accents in speech class. Cherry met that challenge with a fierce determination that has characterized her work ever since. She is smart and strong and powerful, with a wry sense of humor and a delightful twinkle in her eye. I have followed most of her work in New York and deeply admire her talent, her character, and her humanity. I directed her in my senior project in school with a play called Circus Lady and she made it so easy — all I had to do was give her the stage. Happy birthday my dear friend!

2016-12-06-1481057635-3188790-cherryjones07.jpg

Todd Haimes, Artistic Director, Roundabout Theare Company, NYC

Cherry Jones is so talented, so giving, and so incredibly warm that to wish her merely a happy birthday doesn’t seem like enough. So I will wish for Cherry all of the joy that she has brought to her audiences and many friends over the years. I feel privileged to have been a small part of the wonderful work that she has shared on New York stages. She is a singular performer, and the theatre would be a lesser place without Cherry Jones in it.

There are precious few genuine stars of what used to be called “the legitimate stage.” Cherry, you are indisputably one of those: An actress of charisma, integrity and genius. The spiritual descendant of Le Gallienne and Julie Harris.

I could go on endlessly about how great thou art. But since that is universally acknowledged, I will simply state that over the years we’ve worked together, I’ve never once seen you forget the joy that is so essential to surviving and flourishing in our strange racket. Time and time again, I’ve been a witness as your radiant love for the theater flowed through rehearsal halls and across the footlights. Each time, I have been lifted up.

Thank you darling Cherry — Happy Birthday and all love, Doug.

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes

Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes


Get this: Cronus liked to eat babies. Narcissus probably should have just learned to masturbate. Odin got construction discounts with bestiality. Isis had bad taste in jewelry. Ganesh was the very definition of an unplanned pregnancy. And Abraham was totally cool about stabbing his kid in the face. All our lives, we’ve been fed watered-down, PC versions of the classic myths. In reality, mythology is more screwed up than a schizophrenic shaman doing hits of unidentifiedwait, it all makes sense now. In Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes, Cory O’Brien, creator of Myths RETOLD!, sets the stories straight. These are rude, crude, totally sacred texts told the way they were meant to be told: loudly, and with lots of four-letter words. Skeptical? Here are a few more gems to consider: Zeus once stuffed an unborn fetus inside his thigh to save its life after he exploded its mother by being too good in bed. The entire Egyptian universe was saved because Sekhmet just got too hammered to keep murdering everyone. The Hindu universe is run by a married couple who only stop murdering in order to throw sweet dance partieson the corpses of their enemies. The Norse goddess Freyja once consented to a four-dwarf gangbang in exchange for one shiny necklace. And there’s more dysfunctional goodness where that came from.

Gwen Stefani Wishes Her Divorce From Gavin Rossdale ‘Didn’t Happen’

Gwen Stefani opened up about her “unexpected” divorce from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale in yet another radio interview. 

The “Used To Love You” singer was on “The Tommy Show” Wednesday morning and talked about her 13-year marriage, hinting at the cheating rumors that have been swirling around. Rossdale allegedly cheated with the family nanny for three years, according to Us Weekly. 

“I feel like I go back and listen to a lot of that stuff, and I get sick,” said Stefani to the radio station. “You look at the song and you go ‘That was a red flag. That was a moment where I was feeling just as bad as I feel today and why did I keep it up?'” 

Stefani and Rossdale filed for divorce in August after nearly 20 years of being together. They have three children, sons Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 1. 

“I wish it didn’t happen, I wish that all of this wasn’t happening but at the same time, I feel like it was part of my life journey,” Stefani said on the radio show. “In my life I’ve had two really bad heartbreaks and I’ve written some incredible music out of it and I feel so lucky to have that and to be able to share it.” 

Stefani has previously admitted that her new single, “Used To Love You,” was written during a time period when her life was crumbling. 

“I had been writing because my life blew up,” the singer said during an interview with  KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright. ”Everybody knows that my life blew up last February. I’d just been dealing with that.” 

Stefani has since moved on with fellow “Voice” coach and country singer, Blake Shelton.

9 Things Your Hair Colorist Wishes You’d Stop Doing

The relationship we all have with our hair colorist is one of the most intimate we have outside of our family and friends. We trust them to conceal our roots or gray hair, and fix our bad at-home dye jobs (more on this later). 

At the end of the day, your hair colorist has a job to do, but there are some key things you can do to make his or her life easier. Here’s a couple of bad habits your colorist wishes you’d break — after all, this is a relationship worth saving. 

1. Don’t be late for your hair appointment. “Five to 10 minutes late is understandable,” says Kyle White, the lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. “Life happens, there’s traffic or the babysitter was late. I totally get it, but when you are consistently 20 minutes late for your appointment, it says one thing to me. You think your time is way more valuable then mine, and every other client that will be kept waiting because of you.” The pro’s advice: If you are more than 15 minutes late, apologize profusely and reschedule.

2. Don’t be dishonest about your hair history. ”If there’s color on your hair or it’s chemically straightened, we need to know,” White says. “I promise we won’t think any less of you if your hair is not 100 percent natural or you had to see someone else while you were summering in the Hamptons.” A colorist may get angry if they use the incorrect dye formula because a client fibbed about their hair being “virgin” or using a box color the week prior, White explained. “Always be honest,” he says. “It could be the difference between beautiful hair and head full of straw.”

3. Don’t wear white or an expensive designer outfit to get your hair dyed. L’Oréal Paris celebrity colorist Kari Hill says, “When people come for hair color application dressed completely in white — makes me nervous!” White adds, “Also, I’m betting that you won’t care what color your hair is if we get a huge glob of bleach on that Birken!”

4. Don’t forget to bring a picture“You know the saying ‘A picture says a thousand words.’ Well, that’s never truer than when it comes to color,” says White. Pro trick: look for a photograph of someone with a similar skin tone, eye color and natural base hair color as your own because those shades will probably work best and be the most achievable.

5. Don’t show up with wet or dirty hair. Hill notes that you can’t color wet hair, so it wastes time having to blow dry it first and then apply color. “There’s also a false belief that it’s better to color on very dirty hair [but] an excessive amount of hair product residue on strands can impede color application,” she says.

6. Don’t move around while you are getting your hair colored. “I swear sometimes I think the clients are more interested in reading magazines and sipping cappuccinos then they are about getting their hair done right,” says White. “If you’re a moving target, things get messed up, highlights get placed incorrectly or a spot may be missed.”

7. Don’t distract your hairdresser by talking non-stop. “There’s no denying that there is a strong social aspect to a hair appointment, and many of my best friends started out as clients,” he says. “Keep in mind that intricate haircuts and color are complex procedures that require a reasonable amount of concentration.”

8. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about the outcome. Having black hair with a desire to go blonde in under an hour is impossible, according to Hill. “It doesn’t work time-wise, and you will never be totally pleased with rushed results,” she says.

9. Don’t forget to protect your fresh new hair color from the sun. “I’m tired of hearing clients tell me that they spent time in the sun and then complain about their color changing,” says Hill. “Hair oxidizes without the proper protection! I always advise on wearing hats or headscarves, limiting sun exposure and using products with UV filters.”

4 Wishes for the Class of 2015

The following speech was delivered on June 27, 2015 at the Tsinghua School of Economics & Management commencement in Beijing.

I am honored to be here today to address Dean Yingyi Qian, Tsinghua School of Economics and Management’s distinguished faculty, proud family members, supportive friends, and most importantly, the class of 2015. Unlike my boss, Mark Zuckerberg, I do not speak Chinese. For that I apologize. But he did ask me to pass along this message — zhuhe. I am thrilled to be here to congratulate this magnificent class on your graduation.

When Dean Qian invited me to speak today, I thought, come talk to a group of people way younger and cooler than I am? I can do that. I do that every day at Facebook, since Mark is 15 years younger than I am and many of our employees are more his contemporaries than mine. I like being surrounded by young people, except when they say to me, “What was it like being at university without a mobile phone?” or worse, “Sheryl, can you come here? We need to see what old people think of this feature.”

I graduated from college in 1991 and business school in 1995. This was not that long ago. But I can tell you: the world has changed an awful lot in just 25 years. My business school class tried to have our school’s first online class. We had to pass out a list of screen names because it was unthinkable to put your real name on the Internet. And it did not work because the system kept crashing — it just wasn’t possible for 90 people to communicate at once online.

But for a few brief moments in between crashes, we glimpsed the future — a future where technology would connect us to our colleagues, our relatives, our friends. The world we live in today is one I could not have imagined when I was sitting where you are. And 25 years from now, you will have helped shape your generation’s world.

As graduates of Tsinghua, you will be leaders not just in China, but globally. China is a world leader in terms of educational attainment and economic growth. It is not just political and business leaders that recognize the importance of China. Many American parents realize it as well; the hardest schools to get into in the San Francisco Bay area where I live are those that teach Chinese.

But the fact is countries don’t lead. People lead.

As you graduate today, you start your path toward leadership. What kind of leader will you be? How much impact on others will you have? What will be your mark on the world?

At Facebook, we have posters on our walls to remind us to think big — to challenge ourselves to do more each and every day. There are important leadership lessons reflected in these posters — and today, I want to cover four of them that I think can be meaningful for you.

First, fortune favors the bold.

Facebook exists because Mark believed that the world would be a better place if people could use technology to connect as individuals. He believed it so much that he dropped out of Harvard College to pursue that mission and he fought to hold onto it over the years. What Mark did was not lucky. It was bold.

It’s unusual to find your passion as early as Mark. It took me far longer to figure out what I wanted to do. When I was sitting in a graduation robe, I could not have considered a job at Facebook because the Internet did not exist — and Mark was only 11 years old. I thought I would only ever work for the government or a philanthropic organization because I believed these institutions made the world a better place while companies only worked towards profits. But when I was working at the U.S. Treasury Department, I saw from afar how much impact technology companies were having on the world and I changed my mind. So when my government job ended, I decided to move to Silicon Valley.

In retrospect, this seems like a shrewd move. But in 2001, it was questionable at best. The tech bubble had burst. Large companies were doing massive layoffs and small companies were going out of business. I gave myself four months to find a job. It took almost a year. In one of my first interviews, a tech company CEO said to me, “I took this meeting as a favor to a friend but I would never hire someone like you — people from the government can’t work in technology.”

Eventually, I persuaded someone to hire me, and 14 years later, I still love working in tech. It was not my original plan, but I got there — eventually.

I hope if you find yourself on one path but longing for something else, you find a way to get there. And if that isn’t right, try again. Try until you find something that stirs your passion, a job that matters to you and matters to others. It’s a luxury to combine passion and contribution. It’s also a clear path to happiness.

Second, feedback is a gift.

At Facebook, I knew that the most important determinant of my performance would be my relationship with Mark. When I joined, I asked Mark for a commitment that he would give me feedback every week so that anything that bothered him would be aired and discussed quickly. Mark not only said yes but immediately added that he wanted it to be reciprocal. For the first few years, we stuck to this routine and met every Friday afternoon to voice concerns big and small. As the years went by, sharing honest reactions became part of our relationship and we now do so in real time rather than waiting for the end of the week.

Getting feedback from your boss is one thing, but it’s every bit as important to get feedback from those who work for you. This is not an easy thing to do as employees are often eager to please those above them and don’t want to criticize or question their higher-ups.

One of my favorite examples of this comes from Wall Street. In 1990, Bob Rubin became the CEO of Goldman Sachs. At the end of his first week, he looked at Goldman’s books and noticed large investments in gold. He asked someone why. The answer? “That was you, sir.” “Me?” he replied. Apparently, the day before he had been walking around on the trading floor and he commented to someone that “gold looks interesting.” This got repeated as “Rubin likes gold” and someone spent hundreds of millions of dollars to make the new boss happy.

On a smaller scale, I have faced a similar challenge. When I joined Facebook, one of my tasks was to build the business side of the company — but without destroying the engineering-driven culture that made Facebook great. So one of the things I tried to do was discourage people from doing formal PowerPoint presentations for meetings with me. At first, I asked nicely. Everyone ignored me and kept doing their presentations. So about two years in, I said, “OK, I usually hate rules but I now have a rule: No more PowerPoint in my meetings.”

About a month later I was about to address our global sales team, when someone said to me, “Before you get on that stage, you really should know everyone’s pretty upset about the no PowerPoint with clients thing.” I was shocked. I had never banned these presentations for clients! I just did not want them in meetings with me. How could we present to our clients without PowerPoint? So I got on the stage and said, “One, I meant no PowerPoint with me. And two, next time you hear a bad idea — like not doing proper client presentations — speak up. Even if you think it is what I have asked for, tell me I am wrong!”

A good leader recognizes that most employees won’t feel comfortable challenging authority, so it falls upon authority to solicit feedback. I learned from my PowerPoint mistake. I now ask my colleagues “What could I do better?” And I always thank the person who has the guts to answer me honestly, often by praising them publicly. I firmly believe that you lead best when you walk side-by-side with your colleagues. When you don’t just talk but you also listen.

Third, nothing is someone’s else’s problem.

When I started my career, I observed people in leadership roles and thought, “They’re so lucky. They have so much control.” So imagine my surprise when I took a course in business school on leadership and was told that as you get more senior, you are more dependent on other people. At the time, I thought my professors were wrong.

They were right. I am dependent on my sales team… not the other way around. If they fall short, it is my mistake. As a leader, what I can accomplish is not just what I can do myself but what everyone on my team does.

Companies in every country operate in ways that are right for their cultures. But I believe that there are some principles of leadership that are universal — and one of those is that it is better to inspire than to direct. Yes, people will do what their bosses tell them to do in most organizations. But great leaders do not just want to secure compliance. They want to elicit genuine enthusiasm, complete trust, and real dedication. They don’t just win the minds of their teams, they win their hearts. If they believe in your organization’s mission and they believe in you, they will not only do their daily tasks well, but they will do them with true passion.

No one won more hearts than my beloved husband Dave Goldberg who passed away suddenly two months ago. Dave was a truly inspiring leader. He was kind. He was generous. He was thoughtful. He raised the level of performance of everyone around him. He did it as CEO of SurveyMonkey, an amazing company that he helped build. He did it for me and for our children.

A friend of ours named Bill Gurley, a leading venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, wrote a post where he urged others to “Be Like Dave.” Bill wrote, “Dave showed us all exactly what being a great human being looks like… But it was never frustrating because Dave’s greatness was not competitive or threatening. It was gentle, inspirational and egoless. He was the quintessential standard for the notion of leading by example.”

Harvard Business School Professor Frances Frei has said “leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.” Like Dave, you can do this for others over the course of your career.

Fourth, lean in.

As the Chinese proverb holds — “women hold up half the sky.” This is quoted all over the world and women have a special role in China’s history and present.

When the world has gathered to discuss the status and advancement of women, we’ve done it here in Beijing. In 1995, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action — which called for women’s full and equal participation in life and decision-making — was adopted by 189 governments. Last year, on the 20th anniversary of that historic declaration, leaders again gathered here to mobilize around what has become known as the promise of Beijing: equality for women and men.

Yet while we all acknowledge the importance and strength of women, when we look at leadership roles in every country, they are overwhelmingly held by men. In almost every country in the world — including the United States and China — less than 6 percent of the top companies are run by women. Women hold fewer leadership roles in every industry. This means that when it comes to making the decisions that affect all us, women’s voices are not heard equally.

There are many reasons for the gender leadership gap — outright discrimination, greater responsibilities at home, a lack of flexibility in the workplace, and importantly, our stereotypical expectations. While cultures differ all over the globe, our stereotypes of men and women are remarkably similar. Although the status of women is changing and evolving in China and many parts of the world, traditional expectations and stereotypes linger. To this day, in the U.S., in China, and everywhere, men are expected to lead, be assertive, succeed. Women are expected to share, be communal, acquiesce to others. We expect leadership from boys and men. But when a little girl leads, we call her “bossy” in English, or qiang shi in Chinese.

Other social barriers also hold women back. Women are often excluded from professional networks — like Guanxi — and both formal and informal socializing that is critical for job advancement. This is also true in the United States, where men often chose to mentor other men instead of women.

I believe that the world would be a better place if men ran half our homes and women ran half our institutions — and the good news is that we can change the stereotypes and get to real equality. We can support women who lead in the workforce. We can find more balance in the home by fathers helping mothers with housekeeping and childrearing; more equal marriages are happier and more active fathers raise more successful children. We can walk up to someone who calls a little girl “bossy,” and say instead, “That little girl is not bossy. That little girl has executive leadership skills.”

And I want to make this very clear: Equality is not just good for women. It’s good for everyone. Female participation in the workforce is a major driver of economic growth. Companies that recognize the full talents of the entire population outperform those that do not. AliBaba CEO Jack Ma, who stood here last year, has said that “one of the secret sauces for Alibaba’s success is that we have a lot of women… without women, there would be no Alibaba.” Women hold 40 percent of all jobs at Alibaba and 35 percent of senior positions — far more than most companies anywhere in the world.

Great leaders don’t just develop people like them, they develop everyone. If you want to be a great leader, you will develop the women — as well as the men — at your companies and on your teams.

Our peers can help us develop, too. When Lean In was published in 2013, we launched LeanIn.org, a nonprofit with a mission to empower all women to achieve their ambitions. LeanIn.Org helps form Lean In Circles, small peer groups who met regularly to share and learn together. There are now over 23,000 circles in more than 100 countries.

The first international Lean In Circle I ever met with was in Beijing — a group of young professional women who gathered to support each other’s professional ambitions and challenge the idea of “shengnu,” leftover women. In the past two years, they have built a network of Circles throughout China from working professionals to university students — women and men who come together to support equality. One of these Circles is at Tsinghua, and I met with them earlier this morning. I was inspired by their passion for their studies and their careers. As one member told me, “It was when I first joined Lean In Tsinghua that I began to fully understand the Chinese proverb, ‘A just cause enjoys abundant support.'”

I believe your generation will do a better job than mine at fixing the problem of gender inequality. So we turn to you. You are the promise for a more equal world.

2015-06-28-1435498115-3977401-sheryl3.jpg

Today is a day of celebration. A day to celebrate your accomplishments, the hard work that brought you to this moment.

This is a day of gratitude. A day to thank the people who helped you get here — the people who nurtured you, taught you, cheered you on and dried your tears. Today is a day of reflection. A day to think about what kind of leader you want to be.

I believe that you are the future leaders, not only of China but of the world. And for each of you, I wish four things:

1. That you are bold and have good fortune. Fortune favors the bold.

2. That you give and get the feedback you need. Feedback is a gift.

3. That you empower everyone. Nothing is somebody else’s problem.

4. That you support equality. Lean In!

Congratulations!

Birthday Wishes in the Facebook Era

I recently celebrated another birthday… thank you for your well-wishes. In the week since my birthday, I’ve received over a hundred “happy birthday” messages, many of them from people I haven’t spoken to in years.

Isn’t it funny how people seem to come out of the woodwork to wish you a happy birthday? Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great! It really makes you feel special to be inundated with well-wishes on your birthday, but the contrast is striking. Where are most of these people the other 364 days of the year? Some are like your great aunt Sue, sending a mass “happy holidays” message in December and a unique “happy birthday” message on your special day. Others are school friends who haven’t interacted with you since graduation day. There are the people you’re vaguely friends with, and those whom you’re surprised they know your birthday; but of course they do – Facebook told them.

There, I said it. The number of people who actually know when your birthday is, or have a sense of what month it’s in, can probably be counted on your fingers and toes. But thanks to Facebook, hundreds of people get reminders that prompt them to send the two words “happy birthday” en masse. Don’t believe it? Try changing the date on your Facebook account and see how many birthday messages you get on your listed fake birthday. (You’ll also see who actually knows when your birthday is by the few messages that say “I’m confused, I thought your birthday is in April” – go buy each of them a present, they deserve it.)

But are these prompted well-wishes bad? No. Everyone wants to feel loved on his or her birthday, and getting a plethora of birthday wishes reinforces that you are special. Remember, even with an automatic reminder, your friends and acquaintances are still choosing to send you a message. And let’s get real, we all have senior moments, no matter our age; even your closest friends who know when your birthday is need reminders sometimes – I’ve sent numerous belated birthday wishes to childhood friends whose birthdays I’ve known for decades but I forgot on the actual day.

Indeed, one of the most amusing things to me on my birthday was, amidst the onslaught of “happy birthday” messages, to get a text about something unrelated from a good friend who’s forgotten my birthday. Seems odd, no? It was an amusing variation from the theme of the day’s messages, and if someone is my friend 364 days of the year then I don’t mind if he or she forgets my birthday.

Try something new for a year: commit to reaching out every three months to each person you send a birthday wish to. That’s just four times a year, once a season. (Space them out so you don’t have to send all 200 messages on the same day.) But how will you remember if Facebook isn’t reminding you to message them? The same way we did before Facebook: Set a reminder in your calendar. (And how convenient, your phone or computer can automatically repeat the reminder every three months!) I assure you that if you do, at least a handful of these acquaintances will reply and a few will blossom into great friendships. And then on your birthday next year, they can be the ones who obliviously give you a laugh by forgetting it’s your special day!

Pedro Pascal Really Wishes He Were Still On ‘Game Of Thrones,’ Even In Small Part

Pedro Pascal isn’t that different from most “Game of Thrones” viewers — he wishes his character, the charismatic Oberyn Martell, was still on the HBO show.

Pascal was at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 24, to launch a new “Game of Thrones” beer from Brewery Ommegang. After a packed audience watched Pascal tap the first keg of the amber-brown Valar Morghulis beer, the actor talked to HuffPost TV about missing his “Game of Thrones” role, and dealing with people who want to squeeze his head.

HuffPost TV: How many of the people who walk up to you and want to say hello also want to squeeze your head?

Pedro Pascal: Like, they want to puncture my eyeballs? A lot of them. I would say more than half of the people who want to get a picture. I always feel a little guilty when I say, “How about I just smile?” Because I don’t want to have to re-create the moment over and over again.

Yeah, that’s a little troubling. You don’t want to have to go to that place again and again.

Yeah, I don’t want to have to re-live the trauma.

Would you rather still be on “Game of Thrones,” or would you rather have the impact that you had, as the character and the way he left?

I think that ultimately, selfishly, I would want to still be on “Game of Thrones,” only because they are the greatest people I’ve ever worked with. Ninety percent of the work is taken care of by the writing — more than that. Ninety-nine percent is taken care of by writing that is that good, and that’s not something that I’m used to. On top of that, it’s the best crew, the best design team and the greatest cast I’ve ever worked with. I had such a good time, and I’ve never been so challenged. Even if my part would shrink to a fraction of what it was, to get to be there and be around everybody and hang out, it’s probably what I would opt for.

I think I’m just going to guilt [executive producers] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss]. I’m just going to describe my depression to the point that they’re like, “All right! Ellaria is going to have a dream!” [laughs]

Is it your favorite role?

It’s the best role I’ve ever played on screen, without question.

You said it was challenging — what was the biggest challenge of playing Oberyn Martell?

I would say that the character had a confidence that was really important to portray. Any human being would have trouble feeling that level of confidence — a dangerous sort of confidence, you know? He sort of owns his overconfidence — with major consequences, as you could see. And then physically, it was a very challenging role.

Also, I was very aware of the series, as millions are. I was a big fan of the show, and it was the first time I was ever asked to be part of something I was so hyperaware of as an audience member. So there was a lot to battle internally there. But David and Dan made it so easy.

Even though you were aware of the show, were you prepared for the fandom and events like this and how the fans have been to you?

I think the best thing to do is to play stupid. [laughs] It’s all so exciting and you always want to be careful with your expectations and whether they’re negative or positive. So I just sort of played dumb and had a job to do, which was so easy to do — they loved the character so much, and that was on my side from the beginning. The writers and the directors, they loved on the character so hard. So there was that easy focus, and then it was not up to me in terms of how it would be received.

Interview: Dr. John’s Wishes for a Blessed Mardi Gras

Music legend Dr. John, also known as New Orleans native son Mac Rebennack, Jr., probably gets more phone calls on Mardi Gras Day than the whole rest of the year so I got mine in early. Before the revelry hits full gear, here are his wishes to everyone for Mardi Gras 2014, and some memories of the city’s neighborhood traditions.

KDB: I remember how Wardell Quezergue used to talk about the Bone Gangs waking the neighborhood up at the crack of dawn, and he’d run and hide. What’s the first time you saw them?”

Dr. John: One of the first things I remember about the Bone Gangs, my Pa took me out to look at them and I don’t remember the name of the bone gang in the Third Ward, I just remember that they scared the hell out of me. They was all talking about stuff that people could get killed doing so it was a good thing in its way, but as a little kid you just don’t know how to relate to that.

KDB: The North Side Skull and Bone Gang has those aprons that say: “You’re next.” That could be alarming.

Dr. John: Sunpie (Barnes) and some of the guys that was in the Bone Gangs, I like them as cats. But that was a lot later. The first thing I remember back in the game is them guys used to wear real bones with meat. And that was just a weird thing. They would wear them bones and have all that meat hanging off of it, it was just a trip.”

KDB: And then you’ve got the Baby Dolls with their bloomers and cigars, that’s another tradition
.

Dr. John:
The Baby Dolls, they was a lot easier to take than the Bone Gangs. Back then the Baby Dolls and the Gangster Molls, they was two gangs that had the (walking) sticks. They was all from somewhere like Perdido Street, and I used to see them come out. One year my Pa took me, and by the end I saw it all.

KDB: Of course there are the Mardi Gras Indians.

Dr. John
: There was so many great Mardi Gras Indians. I mean, I remember the Red White and Blues, and the Golden Blades. I remember I think that the Red White and Blues snuffed one of the Golden Blades and just left him hanging on the branch of a tree. That’s a long time ago though, probably in the ’40s.

KDB: Before Big Chief Tootie Montana came out against the fighting, and made it about the artistry.

Dr. John: If it wouldn’t have been for Tootie Montana, they would have still been doing all that stuff. Tootie had a beautiful way of trying to pull everything together. It’s funny how stuff like that will always stick in your memory banks, even when you don’t have memory banks left.”

KDB: You have a bank full. I love that your song Big Bass Drum (All on a Mardi Gras Day) gives a shout out to so many of the chiefs.

Dr. John: Certain guys stick out, like the guy they used to call Soulful Pete. He was the Big Chief I think of the Black Eagles, but boy they were hip. He always had all these different kind of patches that was like from ancient Egypt or all kinds of weird stuff that he would put on his patches. It wasn’t at all like the other guys’ patches. That guy had so many different names, about 20 that people would call him. But he was a bad sucker for sowing them patches, that’s what I remember.

KDB: It’s great that the traditions are still being handed down.

Dr. John: “Yeah, It’s like I know Big Chief Little Charles (Taylor) from the White Cloud Hunters, and the Spirit of the Fi Ya Ya, they all slammin things to me.

KDB: I’m glad New Orleans is holding onto that. I think a lot of towns would have lost part of that culture by now.

Dr. John: I think it’s a blessing to keep everything they can keep into the whole picture.

KDB: You rarely get to enjoy it here in New Orleans though, it seems like you’re always touring on Mardi Gras.

Dr. John: But I’ll tell you, more people have called me up to wish me a Mardi Gras, that’s kind of special.

KDB: What’s your wish to everyone on this Mardi Gras Day, 2014?

Dr. John: Well I hope they all have a blessed Mardi Gras and do something that will be fun for them. And don’t hurt nobody. Tootie would have like that.

KDB: Amen. It’s supposed to be a cold day outside, but we’ll be warming up our insides.

Dr. John: Hey, if they dress warm enough they’ll be warm.
