If you love her and don't know her, you'll worship her.
She's the real deal."In addition to her music career, Yearwood has her own cooking show and has released three cookbooks.
"We'd known each other music-wise, but we got to see each other as people.
And I've got to tell you, if you like her and don't know her, you'll love her.
Had Ed worked there, she explained, he’d have had to cede all decisions regarding Melissa to a higher-up as soon as things turned sexual between them. By the time of the seminar, the dean of the business school, Garth Saloner, had been involved with Phills’s estranged wife, Deborah Gruenfeld, a social psychologist and professor of organizational behavior there, for more than a year.
But even before it was time for questions, Phills was sufficiently skeptical to butt in. There was more laughter.“And your expectation would be that the provost or the general counsel, if something like this were to happen, Stanford would be concerned? And while Saloner had ostensibly removed himself from all decisions involving either Phills or Gruenfeld, Phills believed Saloner had remained enmeshed in his affairs, penalizing him professionally and injecting himself into his divorce and custody battles, all to drive him out of Stanford. For three months in the summer and fall of 2012, as the incipient romance between Saloner and Gruenfeld developed, Phills, either sitting at his home computer or manning one of his other electronic devices—including, in one key instance, playing with the cell phone his wife had asked him to fix—had monitored and preserved the e-mails, text messages, and Facebook chats between the two.
But then he went on and on about how dating older boys, even just one year older, is a big deal.She resumed her talk, but before long Phills was at her again. He knew that Saloner had disclosed the fledgling relationship to one of the main authors of the university’s harassment policy, Provost John Etchemendy, as the regulations had required, but doubted whether the dean had done so in a timely fashion or had been fully candid with him when he did. ”Phills says that his monitoring wasn’t hacking but simple self-protection. And whether or just how much his boss, motivated by his ardor for Phills’s wife, had it in for him surely mattered. Gruenfeld: I am sorry I did not change my facebook [sic] password when we started dating. The depravity and lack of conscience is [For Saloner, that was mild.“So suppose Ed were a dean and Melissa was a senior faculty member who was married to another senior faculty member,” he began. Ed would have to recuse himself from making decisions about both Melissa “That would probably pose a real problem,” the lawyer replied. And he knew, at least from what Saloner had had to say about it, how seemingly blasé Etchemendy had been about Saloner’s disclosure. He had had to decide whether to stay at Apple University, the company’s training school in Cupertino, where he’d been working while on a short leave from Stanford, or return to the G. Phills, in fact, denies he stole or hacked anything: he and his wife always shared equipment and passwords. At other times in his chats with Gruenfeld he referred to Phills as an “asshole,” a “sociopath,” and a “dick.” To him and Gruenfeld and Stanford, Phills’s monitoring was a gross and unjustified invasion of privacy.When, in November 2013, Stanford University held one of its seminars on sexual harassment, Professor James A.Phills, of the Graduate School of Business, heard a lawyer from the general counsel’s office describe a romance gone sour at a primate-research center.
