Marissa Mayer, a 13-year veteran of Google, is Yahoo's new CEO, the company announced on Monday. Mayer's appointment comes after a revolving door of.

Longtime Google Exec Marissa Mayer Is Yahoo's New CEO …

There's no question that Marissa Mayer is certainly a catch for Yahoo. After receiving a B.S. in symbolic systems and her M.S. in computer science from Stanford (no fudged engineering credentials here) she started at Google …

Yahoo appoints former Google exec Marissa Mayer as CEO …

As a top executive and employee number 20 at Google, there wasn't necessarily a tremendous opportunity for growth at the Mountain View search giant. That.

  • Will Marissa Mayer Improve Yahoo’s Relevance Or Will Romney’s Old Company Move In And Ship It All To China? Marissa Mayer, one of the top executives at Google, will be the next CEO of Yahoo. Ms. Mayer was responsible for the look and feel of some of Google’s most popular products including the famously unadorned white search homepage, Gmail, Google Images and Google News. Since then, she has been in charge of Google’s location and local services, including Google Maps.
    paraphrase from New York Times

    This looks like a coup for Yahoo. What do you think?

    Is Marissa Mayer The Person Responsible For The Annoying Google Instant? This is a really an annoying feature. I switched to Bing today. Bing makes it easier to switch off this stupid, time wasting feature.

    What Do You Think? Please Can You Give Me Your Honest Opinion And Explain? Drawing. I remember that’s what we used to do together the most. I would draw a lousy horse, frustrated, while he would draw perfect car after perfect car. One day, after we had been drawing for years, he leaned over after he finished with his cars and with his red crayon drew a horse for me. He drew a good, or at least decent, horse that is. That was my favorite day back then. You may think I am blowing this out of proportion but here I was drawing lousy horses for years when finally Jonathon Riley Mayer, leaned over and drew the perfect one in my eyes.

    The perfect horse was black. The mane and tail were both a golden brown color. The horse was running in the summer. Behind the horse was sand and beyond that was an ocean and sunset. This picture is hanging in my bedroom.

    John was 2 years older than me, he was 10 when he drew the perfect horse, and our parents were best friends. Whenever our parents went to a party together, they would ditch us at one house, normally John’s, with a babysitter and split the cost. While we were at the house with the babysitter we would sit in John’s room, with the babysitter making out with her boyfriend downstairs, and draw. We were at my house with the babysitter when John drew the perfect horse.

    A year after John drew the perfect horse his father’s daughter, Marisa, died. They weren’t very close so I expected him to just forget about her. Except being an only child I didn’t know much so when he cried and cried over her with his father I was surprised. For a month I would hang over his house bearing donuts while he cried and I comforted him. Even when he got better I continued to hang out at his house where we would laugh and joke and become friends.

    That hour I spent with John was the only part of the day I looked forward to. I continued to hang out with my group friends, Tammy McGinnis, Marcy Bract, Daniella and Dinah Hans, and Lauren Kraus, at school but I would stop asking them to hang out on the weekdays and weekends and they slowly stopped too. Instead of hanging out I would sit at home staring at the clock waiting for the hour with John to come.

    One Saturday, a year after Marissa died, I went over to John’s house as usual, and I was sent up to his room. But the difference was the prettiest girl from 7th grade, Lilia Simmons, was on the bed kissing John. I stood in the doorway shocked when John noticed me and removed himself from Lilia. I stood there letting John apologize but I wasn’t feeling anything… just shock.

    Lilia and John started dating there so I stopped going to his house every day because Lilia told him he couldn’t have girl friends. I would see my friends in the hallway and laugh with them at lunch but I couldn’t get up the guts to ask them to hang out. It had been too long since we last hung out. Finally I had the guts to ask Tammy to hang out but of course the first time I did she turned me down. After that I asked the twins Daniella and Dinah and they said they could so we went to downtown, saw a movie, and shopped for a little bit.

    But then 4 months after I caught them kissing, I heard that they had broken up. So later that day I went to school bearing donuts and hot chocolate. We chatted about school, the 4 months we spent apart, Lilia, How she had cheated on John, and about John’s 2-week-old yorkie dog named Charm.

    After that we continued to hang out but not as much as before, I started hanging out with my girlfriends more. It was like having divorced parents. I would hang out with a friend every Wednesday and every other weekend and spend the rest of the days with John. We switched off at the houses and the second time we hung out I went to John’s a little bit late and I went to his a little late so we both arrived at the other house at the same time. It was a haha moment and we joked about it for the rest of the dusk while homework.

    Please have in your answer
    A. Your opinion of my story
    B. Why
    C. Opinion on the names (John, Tammy, Daniella, Dinah, Marisa, Marcy, Lauren, Lilia)
    D. Girl names for the main characters?

    • Curator says:

      A. I don’t have much of an opinion on the story itself. I have an opinion on the writing, though.
      B. I don’t know what’s going on exactly, or where it’s going.
      C. They’re okay, but honestly, names to a reader don’t matter. They just learn the character’s name and remember it. It’s like first meeting someone and learning their name. You usually don’t think much about their name, unless it’s one you particularly like or hate.
      D. I like Charlotte, too. Cameron, Nicole, Allison, Darcy?

      I liked the beginning through the middle. I thought you wrote it in a way that immediately drew me in. However, it began to drag after awhile, with unnecessary information that kind of disrupted the flow. Some of the sentences are awkward. Like this one: “One day, after we had been drawing for years, he leaned over after he finished with his cars and with his red crayon drew a horse for me.”

      I’m going to suggest changing it to something that will read more like this:
      “One day, after we had been drawing for years, he leaned over after finishing his cars; and with his red crayon, drew a horse for me.”

      “But then 4 months after I caught them kissing, I heard that they had broken up.” That sounds so awkward and a bit left field, coming after the last line in the before paragraph. A small change can make it sound better. Try tweaking it to, “4 months after I caught John and his girlfriend kissing, I heard that they had broken up.” Or something like that.

      GL, hope I helped. 🙂
