Gemma O’Brien/Google Google is celebrating leaders, artists and inspirational trailblazers from the past 200 years, and Friday, they all happen to be women. To mark International Women’s Day, the Google Doodle for March 8 has illustrated famous quotes from 13 inspirational women. There are those who have gone before us, such as pioneering Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and British suffragette Millicent Fawcett, who campaigned for higher education for girls and the right to vote. The list also includes modern champions who are breaking new ground today. From Indian Olympic boxer Mary Kom, who is the only female boxer to have won a medal in seven world championships, to Chimamanda Adichie, the Nigerian writer whose writing on feminism has been translated into more than 30 languages worldwide. google-doodle-iwd-frida-kahloArgentinian artist Yai Salinas drew inspiration from Frida Kahlo’s work to illustrate this quote from her. Yai Salinas/Google To bring the words of all these notable women to life, Google commissioned 10 female artists and design studios from around the world to illustrate their quotes. US-based Polish designer Zuzanna Rogatty, who illustrated a quote from Adichie, described her process. google-doodle-iwd-chimamanda-adichie Zuzanna Rogatty/Google “Through expressive and rhythmic lettering, I tried to illustrate the energy and power coming from the quote,” she wrote on the Google blog. “I especially highlighted the word ‘equally’ and the last ‘I matter”, which I felt should sound the loudest.”You can read all about the artists and their inspiration on the Google blog, or head to Google Arts and Culture to read about the women who have shaped our world — from the heroes of STEM to the women who turned a hat into a symbol of female power. Google’s focus for this year’s International Women’s Day was “women empowering women” — hence the choice of all female artists for its doodle. While the company has struggled with the issue of gender diversity in the past, along with the rest of Silicon Valley, Google is making inroads, including giving out $9.7 million in 2018 to help address wage inequality. Still, women make up just 30 percent of the workforce in Silicon Valley, according to the Kapor Center, and girls also face several obstacles in pursuing STEM education. On International Women’s Day, some organizations and companies are launching initiatives to change that. If you want to read about more inspiring women in tech, science and entertainment, check out our gallery below.  Originally published March 7.Update, March 8: Adds stat about female workforce in Silicon Valley.

  • Columbus Day latest US debate over history race

    first_imgA demonstrator is detained by riot police during a rally against Columbus Day in downtown Santiago. ReutersShould Christopher Columbus still be honored?Coming on the heels of a growing movement to take down statues commemorating the pro-slavery Confederate Army from the civil war, it’s a question many US cities are now asking themselves.On Monday, crowds filled New York streets to recognize the so-called “man who discovered America,” even as he is increasingly denounced as embodying the genocide of indigenous Americans.Ruth Edelstein-Friedman watched from a folding camping chair while the traditional Columbus Day parade wound along a damp Fifth Avenue.“We brought our children. We wanted them to see the parade and the statues and everything before they get rid of them,” the retiree said.A government holiday in the United States, Columbus Day is named for the explorer, from what is now Italy, who landed in the present-day Bahamas in 1492.For Edelstein-Friedman and her husband Eduardo, who travelled specially from Miami, homages to Columbus could soon be a thing of the past.And the controversy has only escalated following the August clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia where a liberal protester was killed at a white supremacist rally seeking to prevent the removal of statue of General Robert E. Lee, who led the southern Confederacy during the 19th century American Civil War.However, no one has yet announced the end of the New York parade which, in good weather, draws more than a million spectators.It is as much a celebration of New York’s powerful Italian-American community, which is represented at its highest levels by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.Both men proudly marched in Monday’s parade.President Donald Trump brushed aside criticism on Monday by describing the arrival of Columbus as “a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great nation.”Unlike his predecessor Barack Obama, Trump cited no possible failings in the “discovery” of America.Dozens of US cities have already replaced Columbus Day with one honoring indigenous people, after a 1992 initiative from the leftist bastion of Berkeley, California.Over the past two years more than 50 cities across the country have followed. These include Los Angeles, the country’s second-biggest city which voted in August to honor indigenous people and not the explorer.New York’s parade continues but, even there, the fate of its Columbus statues is uncertain.One was erected in 1892 at the top of a 75-foot (23 meter) column above Columbus Circle at the foot of Central Park.‘Genocide’ or ‘revisionism’Last month somebody vandalized another Columbus monument, smaller and in the center of the park.One of its hands was covered in red paint to protest the blood that the explorer had on his own hands, while graffiti on the plinth read: “Hate will not be tolerated.”On Monday a handful of protesters, who have arrived several times, gathered in front of the Columbus Circle statue to denounce “genocide” and “slavery.”Police now guard the statue daily.Petitions and counter-petitions circulate, while the debate continues on Twitter where some denounce Columbus and seek the removal of statues but others condemn “the revisionism of history.”An electric nationwide debate over symbols of racism followed the Charlottesville violence.Heather Heyer, 32, was killed and 19 others were injured when 20-year-old James Fields allegedly drove into a crowd of protestors.New York Mayor de Blasio in August named a commission to decide on the fate of controversial monuments.It will announce its decisions in early December, a month after the municipal election in which de Blasio hopes for a second mandate.Given this, some people like Laura Scheyer and her husband Steve Cohn see the New York parade as something to be preserved.The couple were spending several days in New York after arriving from Seattle, where Columbus Day is no longer celebrated.“Every country has had problems with its history, where they suppressed people,” Cohn said.The parade “is people having fun, and we all deserve a little fun when you look at the world today, don’t you think?”last_img read more

  • Mother should not discuss weight issue with daughters

    first_imgIf you want your daughter to shed a few pounds, better abstain from saying it in so many words and if you have to, do bring in your own weight concerns to the discussion, suggests new research.While discussing issues of diet and weight with their daughters, mothers would do better to raise their own weight-related problems, the study said.Aiming to figure out how mothers should discuss weight issue with their daughters, the study focused on a representative group of sixth- to eighth-grade girls and their mothers. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Generally, we found that for the daughters who were being encouraged to lose weight by their mothers, outcomes were worse if their mothers were not also discussing their own weight concerns,” said one of the researchers Erin Hillard from University of Notre Dame in Indiana, US.“The daughters who were being encouraged to lose weight but whose moms were not also discussing their own weight concerns were more at risk for development of disordered eating, based on the higher scores on measures of dieting behaviour and drive for thinness they reported in eighth grade,” Hillard noted. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHillard acknowledged that the study findings as a whole suggested more about what mothers should not be talking about than what they should.“After all,” she said, “the best outcomes were found for daughters whose mothers were not engaging in either type of conversation.” “They do shed light on the complexity of the issue of talking to children about their weight in ways that don’t lead to poor health outcomes in the long run,” Hillard noted.The study was published in the journal Body Image.last_img read more

He said that last year, VIT stood first for publishing scientific papers.In his address, Maliki said that the theme of graVITas this year was technologies for non-technologists and welcomed this initiative.He said that Morocco was the world leader in the production of chemicals and fertilisers and world renowned companies were operating there. The Moroccan University was among the oldest in the world, he mentioned adding, they gave a lot of importance to generation of solar power. He said that 40 per cent of the total power generated in Moroco was through renewable solar power. Stating that agriculture was one of the most important sectors, he lauded VIT for giving importance to agriculture. Purushothaman presented a cheque of Rs two lakh to VIT student Mary Sebastian for the best project report. In his address, he said that research and inventions were the most important objectives of engineers. Most of the countries in the world were facing several challenges towards growth and development, especially in the industrial and agricultural sectors. He pointed out that while production was in one place, the beneficiaries were situated elsewhere and it took a lot of time and money for beneficiaries to receive the produce. If this had to change, it was the role of engineers to devise new methods to set right this problem.The President of Danfoss India said that the country faced a severe water scarcity and most of the rivers in the country were highly contaminated and there is a need for a plan to rid this contamination.
