Each generation was present, with a distinct under-representation of college age people. To find out why, we interviewed vigil participants and Las Positas College students to compare and contrast views and attitudes about the war and protesting in general.
  • The future of the boardroom is female From the website www.webchats.tv There is no question that womens position in business has come on leaps and bounds in the last 40 years. But despite the success of such trailblazers as Anita Roddick and Diane Thompson, female executives are still largely under represented in the nation's boardrooms. Influential figures like Dame Marjorie Scardino, CEO of Pearson are still the exception rather than the rule in FTSE-100 companies. Girls continue to outperform boys in almost every subject at GCSE and A-level, which makes the under representation even more surprising. Are companies putting themselves at a competitive disadvantage by not fast tracking their talented female employees? In a world of glass ceilings, gender pay gaps and old-boy networks it is perhaps unsurprising that over half of those questioned in a recent survey said they did not believe that women have the same opportunities as men in the world of work. A third also believed that a womans successful business career would have a negative impact on her family life. Yet more positively, over half believed that in the future, men and women would finally be treated equally. But why is it taking so long and how are modern women changing old-fashioned attitudes? Successful businesswomen, Kate Robertson and Esther Lee from Euro RSCG join us live to talk about their own experiences and how they have made it in the business world.

  • Naomi Klein on the Financial Crisis, Jon Stewart, and the Shock Doctrine (2009-5) November 20, 2009 Watch the full interview: Lawrence Henry Summers (born November 30, 1954) is an American economist and the Director of the White House's National Economic Council for President Barack Obama. Summers is the Charles W. Eliot University Professor at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. He is the 1993 recipient of the John Bates Clark Medal for his work in several fields of economics and was Secretary of the Treasury for the last year and a half of the Clinton Administration. Summers also served as the 27th President of Harvard University from 2001 to 2006. Summers resigned as Harvard's president in the wake of a no-confidence vote by Harvard faculty that resulted in large part from Summers' conflict with Cornel West, conflict of interest questions regarding his relationship with Andrei Shleifer, and a 2005 speech in which he suggested that the under-representation of women in the top levels of academia could be due to a "different availability of aptitude at the high end." Summers has also been criticized by some liberals for the economic policies he advocated as Treasury Secretary and in later writings. Since returning to government in the Obama administration, he has come under fire for his numerous financial ties to Wall Street.

  • Police Recruit Youth in Indian Kashmir For more news visit ☛ or Follow us on Twitter ☛ http And in India's Jammu and Kashmir, thousands of young men turned up for a police recruitment drive. Police hope that with more young people on the force, anti-police sentiment will fade away. Thousands of youngsters turned out in India's Srinagar City this week hoping to get a job in the police force. The police want to fill 300 young police constable positions in the Jammu and Kashmir Police Department. [Kuldeep Khuda, Dir. General, Jammu & Kashmir Police]: "This rally of recruitment into J and K police (Jammu and Kashmir police) is being done with a specific purpose to address the under-representation of Srinagar boys in our force." There is a lot of unemployment here and the recruitment drive should help improve conditions for young people in the valley. [Shabir Ahmad, Srinagar Resident]: "When young and educated boys do not get jobs or work, they have to work as laborers, which brings bad thoughts to their minds. But by getting recruited by the police, the youth will be happy and it will improve the condition of the valley." It is hoped the move will stop problems like the massive demonstrations witnessed last year when around 100 protestors were killed by security forces.

  • Women must play full part in peace-building, Security Council declares United Nations, New York, 5 October 2009 - The Security Council today unanimously urged all countries and international bodies to take further steps to ensure full participation of women in all stages of conflict resolution and peace-building, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon calling it a top priority for the United Nations. The 15-member body voiced deep concern about the under-representation of women at all stages of peace processes, particularly the very low numbers in formal roles in mediation processes, nearly nine years after it passed an earlier resolution calling for increased female representation at all decision-making levels in preventing, managing and resolving conflict.

  • ATTORNEY BEN NWOYE AFTER CHIMAROKE NNAMANI SENATE SEAT (courtesy of ) Chicago USA based Nigerian attorney from Enugu State, Benjamin Obiora Nwoye, has decried the state of under-representation by Chimaroke Nnamani, of the people of Enugu East and has vowed to yank the seat away from him. Icheoku met the senatorial aspirant at a fund raiser and would attest to his passion and vision for the people of Enugu State; hopefully there will be a free and fair election in 2011 or whenever Jega's INEC decides to hold it, as this guy is what the doctor ordered - he is both marketable and sell-able; and seems to have a lot to offer to the people of Enugu East Senatorial district. Icheoku wishes Attorney Ben Nwoye God's speed and pray that Enugu East people will heed his call for an alternative and more effective representation through him. His message, "out with Chimaroke Nnamani and in with the peoples real and true advocate of change, Attorney Benjamin Obiora Nwoye!"
  • "Miss Representation": Official Trailer Trailer Courtesy of Girls' Club Entertainment. Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, MISS REPRESENTATION uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media's limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful. In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman's value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and ***uality--and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States still ranks 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, depression rates have doubled among ***age girls, and cosmetic surgery on minors has more than tripled in the last ten years. Stories from ***age girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, academics, and activists like Condoleeza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as MISS REPRESENTATION accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective.

  • David Rosas discusses underrepresentation in Santa Rosa government
  • "Everybody Belongs"... Out of the Basement PART ONE Inspired by a Native Women Activists course, students sought out to make a documentary using the embarrassing physical location of the University of South Dakota's American Indian Studies Department an the $5.5 million South Dakota Oral History Center as a symbol to challenge USD's neglectful treatment of Native Studies and Native American students. The product, the film " 'Everybody Belongs'... Out of the Basement," has grown into much more then just a class project and is now being utilized as a tool to generate substantive change at a university with a poor track record when it comes to Native issues. In addition to an environmentally toxic physical location, these issues include a poor retention rate of Native students at USD, under representation of Natives in the student body as well as faculty, administrative, and Board of Regents positions, poor relationships with South Dakota's tribal colleges, underdeveloped recruitment strategies, and a racially hostile campus climate. It should be noted that since the film's debut, the location of the AIS Department has moved to the third floor of another century-old building (the SDOHC is still housed in the basement of Dakota Hall), and the mold was merely spray-painted over by USD's facilities management. The filmmakers created the 7-point Strategic Plan to advance USD into a flagship institution for Native education listed below. It remains to be seen if USD will follow their advice. 1.

  • Sanaa Lathan on Cleveland Show, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof & Challenging Herself Hollywood actress Sanaa Lathan talks to SoulCulture.TV about her family's history in entertainment, being critical of her own work and distinguishing between herself and the characters she plays. "I am my instrument, you can't just leave yourself behind. There's a little of me in every character.... and yet... well-written characters have their own spirit about them." We also discuss her fun, cartoon role in The Cleveland Show - and the issue of under-representation of black culture, as well as being typecast for specifically "black" roles. "The truth is... I just want more opportunity," she says. "You don't want the role that's always written for a black woman because it just limits your choices; and that's just the world that we live in today. I think it's slowly changing..." She names her recent theatre stretch in London's West End - playing Maggie The Cat in a "historic" all-black casting of Tenesse Williams' classic Cat On A Hot Tin Roof - as some of her proudest work to date, enjoying the in-the-moment immediate audience response of theatre compared to the detachment of film work. I just wanna keep on being challenged... be scared a little, push myself out of my comfort zone; I think thats how you grow... Its not always the most comfortable thing to do, but thats always been my philosophy.

  • Castlevania - Wicked Child on Piano Yay, It's me playing Wicked child (Stage 3). A more than awesome video game tune from the notorious game Castlevania for the Nes, by composer Kinuyo Yama***a. I'm not exactly fond of cameras and It would be a lie to say I'm comfortable being in front of one (I don't like the way they stare), but this is one of my favorite video game compositions and I have listened, played, sung, danced, jumped and cried to it but never recorded it like this. I wanted to try something different for a change, apart from simply playing for myself or in public. I also felt an annoying underrepresentation of (good) piano videos particularly for this awesome tune, hence motivating me further. (= Worth to note is that the song plays in the key of E instead of the original D. More precisely, I technically play the song in D, but I digitally bumped up the whole keyset two steps, pressing C will generate D, and D will generate E etc. As much as I love this song in it's original key, it just sounded...messy when recorded. By playing in one key higher, it sounds a lot clearer. Some of you may be smart enough to realize that "hey this is not exactly how it was played in the game! wtf!". Well, as many other musicians, I tend to characterize the pieces I play, converting them to fit my own personal playing style. I have a habit of merging original tunes with my own arrangements, twists and quirks, though at the same time keeping the original feel and base chords intact. If you can endure my randomly ...
  • Where are the Christians? There seems to be a gross underrepresentation of Christianity (christians debating and endorsing their faith, I mean) on YouTube given the number of Christians in the world and given the command for them to spread the word. I ask the question to all, though especially to the Christians who ARE on YouTube: Where are the Christians??? At the end of the video i show an intro made for me by the YouTuber Hilbert54 for which I need some music and/or sound effects to go along with. I have tried myself and ended up pulling out most of my hair (what little i have!) so i appeal to anyone with the interest, desire and kindness to see if tthey could help me out. Many thanks. I will be making a thanks video in the near future for everyone who has helped me out on intros and such like.

  • who was right ? Sheikh Mujib, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto or Yahya Khan (part 2) The All India Muslim League rose to popularity in the late 1930s amid fears of under-representation and neglect of Muslims in politics. On 29 December 1930, Allama Iqbal's presidential address called for an autonomous "state in northwestern India for Indian Muslims, within the body politic of India."[32] Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah espoused the Two Nation Theory and led the Muslim League to adopt the Lahore Resolution of 1940, popularly known as the Pakistan Resolution. In early 1947, Britain announced the decision to end its rule in India. In June 1947, the nationalist leaders of British India—including Nehru and Abul Kalam Azad on behalf of the Congress, Jinnah representing the Muslim League, and Master Tara Singh representing the Sikhs—agreed to the proposed terms of transfer of power and independence.

  • Under Representation of Women in Elected Office - 2011 Somos Spring Conference Under Representation of Women in Elected Office - by Naomi Rivera
  • Where are the women in Local Government? (English) Despite an extremely favourable Human Development Index (HDI) for women, women's representation in elected political bodies in Sri Lanka is abysmally low. It is 5.8% in parliament, 4.1% in provincial councils and only 1.8% in local government. Nominations for women by the major political parties have remained almost stagnant in the last 50 years and even after Sri Lanka switched to elections based on proportional representation (PR) in 1989. Although, there are many women leaders at the community level they are marginalized and ignored when it comes to nominations. Women's organizations have used many strategies to increase representation in the last 10 -- 15 years including through independent women's lists and advocacy for a legal quota for women. However in a culture which is based on patronage politics, independent lists have so far not succeeded. A legal quota has also not been implemented. Therefore if women's representations in local councils are to be increased, the major political parties must be pressured to give more nominations to women, while at the same time raising public awareness about the problem of under representation of women at local level. It also seeks to raise awareness about the issue of under- representation of women at local level as well as the importance of having women's representation in local councils at the community level.
