The Miami Marlins make history with hiring of Kim Ng as general manager: The Miami Marlins have a new general manager, and it comes with some historical precedence.

The Marlins on Friday announced they hired Kim Ng to oversee baseball operations.

Ng, 51, is now the highest-ranking woman in baseball operations among MLB’s 30 teams and is believed to be the first woman hired to a general manager position by any professional men’s sports team in North America.

She got a congratulatory tweet from Ozzie Guillen. I don't know why I was worried that he'd say something out of line.

She's been considered a GM candidate for over a decade now, so this was probably long over due.

Obviously very deserving and probably should have already been a GM.

Essays, especially creative ones, help students develop their minds and help them create their own ideas. Writing an essay is the same as writing a personal statement.

The only difference is that in a personal statement, the details must be factual, whereas in a creative essay, the stories may not be factual if they are interesting.
