Anita Garibaldi – the Early Years

Anita was married off at age fourteen to a drunkard who physically abused her.

When she met Giuseppe Garibaldi she simply left her husband and joined Garibaldi on his ship, the Rio Pardo, and became his common-law wife.It was the first time she was ever at sea and she quickly became an able-bodied seaman and a fierce sword fighter. Legend has it that, at the point of her sword, she forced cowardly shipmates to fight.

Business Babylon

I started in business back in 1973. When you were conducting it, you picked up the phone, made an appointment, met the person (often times over lunch), discussed the proposition and you moved ahead – or you did not. Today requires us to interact through several different forms and at several different levels. That, in and of itself, is a skill that requires patience, coordination, timing, access and understanding of several specific modes of communication.
