Bring in this culture from the start at home.- If we feel that our conditioning plays a role in who we are today, then also be informed that we alone have the power to change our conditioning. We carry a responsibility as women not just for ourselves but for all other fellow women too because when we change, we influence other women and that can truly change the world!- When we say ‘women’, the word oppression comes to mind instantly.

This story originally appeared on Business Insider Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Google has officially revealed the new operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop, that it previewed at Google I/O earlier this year. Until Wednesday, it had been code-named Android “L.” Google is calling Lollipop its “largest, most ambitious” Android release yet. The company overhauled its aesthetics with “Material Design,” which is a sleek, colorful new interface that is meant to make the user experience seamless across phones, tablets, TVs, and smartwatches. You can see more specific examples of how nice Material Design looks here. Lollipop also lets users make new settings adjustments, like controlling which notifications they’ll get at certain times (for example, you can set your phone so that during a fancy dinner you’ll see texts only from family). You can also create multiple user accounts (especially valuable for tablets) and a guest user mode, which will allow you to keep parts of your phone private when you’re letting someone else use it. Perhaps one of the most exciting features of Lollipop is that there’s a new battery-saver feature that will help extend the life of your phone — by up to 90 minutes. Google also just officially unveiled its new smartphone — the Nexus 6 — which will, of course, come running Lollipop. For other Nexus owners, you’ll get a Lollipop update in early November. Google also made an emotionally resonant video around the idea of Android being open source: October 16, 2014 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 2 min read
