> In response to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, some men in positions of power say they are afraid to participate in mentoring relationships with women. This response has serious consequences for women’s career advancement.

Unless you have a very good reason not to, or are publicly known anyway, there is really no need for you to use your real name or photo online.

Did you know that not all animals have red blood? Humans and most other vertebrates use hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout our bodies, which has an iron base that gives blood it's red color.
However, octopi, squid, and several other invertebrates use a copper base, called hemocyanin, which means their blood is blue in color. And it doesn't stop there - some critters have green, purple, or even completely clear blood, all with different molecules that carry oxygen!
