Bias has to be taught. If you hear your parents downgrading women or people of different backgrounds why you are going to do that.
Ageism works in both directions. As a teenager in the public eye people would talk condescendingly to me. When you get older there's this feeling that you have to start carving up your face and body. Right now I'm in the middle ground - I think women in their thirties are taken seriously.
There's always a miasma of misinformation emerging from the higher education sector as to which are the 'best' courses to take. My advice would always be to ignore the perceived wisdom and look for the most reliable evidence on the ground.
He who lives by the crystal ball soon learns to eat ground glass.
Wise sayings often fall on barren ground but a kind word is never thrown away.
But the war on terror as I have repeatedly said in the past and the Afghan people believe in it in truth is that the war on terror is not in the Afghan villages or homes. Its in the sanctuaries it is in the training grounds its in the motivation factors and the money that comes to it.

Mark Twain was a great traveler and he wrote three or four great travel books. I wouldn't say that I'm a travel novelist but rather a novelist who travels - and who uses travel as a background for finding stories of places.
A travel book is about someone who goes somewhere travels on the ground sees something and spends quite a lot of time doing it and has a hard time and then comes back and writes about it. It's not about inventing.
I like Mitt Romney as a person. I think he's a dignified person. But I have no common ground on economics. He doesn't worry about the Federal Reserve. He doesn't worry about foreign policy. He doesn't talk about civil liberties so I would have a hard time to expect him to ever invite me to campaign with him.

I love the 3D revolution. I love the technology today that continues to push the envelope continues break the new ground and continues to raise the bar.
