US should not 'stand by' on Ukraine

If you needed further evidence of the pressure that US President Barack Obama is under to send arms to the Ukrainian government, just listen to my interview with Senator Joe Manchin.

“Having talent isn’t merely about being competent; confidence is actually a part of that talent.”
Katty Kay, The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance---What Women Should Know

“Simply put, a woman’s brain is not her friend when it comes to confidence. We think too much and we think about the wrong things. Thinking harder and harder and harder won’t solve our issues, though, it won’t make us more confident, and it most certainly freezes decision making, not to mention action. Remember, the female brain works differently from the male brain; we really do have more going on, we are more keenly aware of everything happening around us, and that all becomes part of our cognitive stew. Ruminating drains the confidence from us. Those negative thoughts, and nightmare scenarios masquerading as problem solving, spin on an endless loop. We render ourselves unable to be in the moment or to trust our instincts because we are captive to those distracting, destructive thoughts, which gradually squeeze all the spontaneity out of life and work. We have got to stop ruminating.”
Katty Kay, The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance---What Women Should Know

“The propensity to dwell on failure and mistakes, and an inability to shut out the outside world are, in his mind, the biggest psychological impediments for his female players, and they directly affect performance and confidence on the court.”
