Times are changing – women afraid to get married, men more open to it

Times have changed and women are changing them. From Jezebel:

A new study has found a possible reason for the much-vaunted decline in marriage: people are afraid of having to go through a divorce 다운로드. And women are more likely than men to fear getting “trapped” in a relationship they can’t easily exit.

And exiting is the new factor 영상앨범 산 다운로드. Now that women can leave marriages and have the financial stability to do so – everything is changing. They are even avoiding getting married in the first place 다운로드. Preferring to stay single longer and closely evaluating the men in their lives. While men seem more open to marriage than ever before.

How advertisers convinced Americans they smelled bad

It was an enterprising schoolgirl and a traveling bible salesman in 1919. They couldn’t get ladies to use antiperspirants until they made them feel bad 다운로드. The strategy was to encourage them to be insecure, from Smithsonian Magazine:

Perspiration as a social faux pas that nobody would directly tell you was responsible for your unpopularity, but which they were happy to gossip behind your back about 토이스토리2 다운로드.

Reading more like a lyrical public service announcement than an advert:

A woman’s arm! Poets have sung of it, great artists have painted its beauty 빠른 성경 듣기. It should be the daintiest, sweetest thing in the world. And yet, unfortunately, it’s isn’t always.

 

It worked and sales boomed 요 화경 다운로드. The next step was to convince men they needed it. Can you guess how they did that?

Julie Goldstein’s beautiful woodcut prints

 

A friend introduced me to Julie Goldstein’s art and I am totally blown away 다운로드. I love the strong colors, proportions and simple iconic images.

From her bio:

Julie’s art practice draws inspiration from the natural environment, the sea, surf culture, and experience from her travels 다운로드. In multimedia works on paper and fabric, she mixes lithographic and woodcut printmaking techniques with sewing embroidery, and other traditional “women’s arts” – the result is a hybrid, contemporary style with urban motifs and lively depictions of friends and family 0070로지프로그램 다운로드.

“I carry small blocks of pine and poplar with me wherever I travel – these serve as drawing surfaces on which to quickly record the changing environment around me 다운로드. I relish the tactile process of incising and carving the image onto the wooden surface.”

 

It also says that she loves to swim and you can tell in every piece 캐논 g2900 서비스툴 다운로드. Enjoy!

Celebrating 40 years of Title IX with 40 amazing female athletes

Celebrating 40 years of Title IX

It simply reads:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

When it became law on June 23, 1972, Title IX changed the landscape of collegiate athletics geometry dash 정식판.

Its impact over the last 40 years has been profound from coast-to-coast.

 

Such a great piece of legislation!

The perfect time to celebrate this landmark act after the woman of America so dominated the London 2012 Olympic Games 다운로드.

My alma mater, UCLA, is writing about the 40 greatest women athletes since Title IX, and the list is quite impressive.

Among the athletes are Florence Griffith-Joyner (Flo-Jo), who according to Wikipedia is “considered the “fastest woman of all time” based on the fact that she still holds the world record for both the 100 metres and 200 metres, both set in 1988 and never seriously challenged.”

Jackie Joyner-Kersee (JJK), from Wikipedia, “ranked among the all-time greatest athletes in the women’s heptathlon as well as in the women’s long jump. Sports Illustrated for Women magazine voted Joyner-Kersee the Greatest Female Athlete of the 20th century.”

And, 40 more 다운로드!

I really enjoyed the Olympics, particularly seeing Oscar Pistorius compete in his carbon fibre Cheetah foot 삼국지 11 리마스터 다운로드. Now, I’m looking forward to seeing some of the more exciting Paralympic events:

Following his historic appearance at the Olympic Games – where he was the first male athlete with a disability to compete at the able-bodied Games – South African Pistorius will be keen to assert his dominance on the Paralympic stage once more 사업계획서 샘플 다운로드.

He will be participating in his third Paralympic Games and will hope to repeat his success at Beijing 2008, where he won gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 400m events in the T44 category ummy video downloader 1.8 다운로드. – London 2012 Paralympics

 

I also want to see the wheelchair racing in the track & field athletics division shp 파일. There is also a record number of women competing and so I will look forward to seeing some of those events 다운로드.

The good news is that for the first time NBC will be broadcasting the Paralympics and the International Paralympic Committee will host 580 hours of online coverage 소녀전선 다운로드.

London 2012: women earn more medals, compete in more events, and represent more countries

Clearly, the U.S. has the best women in the world.

As the London Olympics near their end, one of the biggest, most significant storylines is the dominance of America’s female athletes 다운로드. There’s no other word for it. It’s because of the women — not the men — that the United States stands atop the medal table. – The Modesto Bee

Our ladies have also pulled in twice as many gold medals as the men 닌텐도스위치 nsp 다운로드.

And that’s despite the fact that 10 percent fewer women’s medals have been awarded so far. – Seattle PI

 

Altogether, women represent 44% of the Olympic athletes, up from 26% at the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games 윈도우 익스플로러 다운로드. Thirty-four countries sent more women than men to compete.

Finally, a nice article from USA Today exploring this historic shift:

Something historic and even a little strange is happening in the 2012 London Games 다운로드. A nation that has been known for wielding a strong male chauvinistic sports streak has fallen in love with its female athletes. And it’s not just the Brits 다운로드. American female athletes, outnumbering their male counterparts for the first time in an Olympics, are having their finest Games so far, outpacing the men in gold medals 18-10 아이맥 윈도우 다운로드. Overall, they’ve won 53% of all U.S. medals, up considerably from 31% in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.

Healthcare reform for women – beginning today no co-pay for preventive care like mammograms, contraception

Under the Affordable Care Act, for the first time ever, women will now have access to life-saving preventive care, such as mammograms and contraception, without paying any more out of their own pockets 다운로드.

 

 

Today, we move yet another step closer to giving women control over their health care 월드컵 맞고 다운로드. In addition to the benefits for women already included in the Affordable Care Act, beginning the first plan year after August 1, 2012, most private health insurance plans will cover additional women’s preventive services without requiring women to pay an extra penny out of their pockets 다운로드. These services include:

  • Well-woman visits
  • Screening for gestational diabetes, which help protect the mother and her child from one of the most serious pregnancy-related diseases
  • Breastfeeding support, supplies and counseling
  • Screening and counseling for interpersonal and domestic violence
  • Contraception and contraceptive counseling
  • HPV DNA testing
  • STI counseling
  • HIV screening and counseling

These services are based on recommendations from the Institute of Medicine, which relied on advice from independent physicians, nurses, scientists, and other experts, as well as evidence-based research, to develop its recommendations 이웃사람 다운로드. And insurance companies know these services help prevent disease and illness, which can save them money in the long run.

By eliminating barriers like copays, co-insurance, and deductibles, secure, affordable coverage is quickly becoming a reality for millions of American women and families 폴라리스 오피스 2019 다운로드.

President Obama recalled his mother telling him, “You can tell how far a society is going to go by how it treats its women and girls.  And if they’re doing well, then the society is going to do well; and if they’re not, then they won’t be.”

3 of the 12 victims in the Aurora shooting died protecting their ladies

In the movies the Dark Knight does not always save his lady, but in the Aurora theater the story unfolded differently. The male instinct to rescue and protect kicked in the way it does in less complicated superhero tales 다운로드. At least three of the 12 victims of the shooting died because they were physically protecting the women they came to the movie with. Alex Teves, 24, used his body as a shield to cover his girlfriend ermaster. He was shot, and she survived. Matthew Robert McQuinn threw his body in front of his girlfriend, Samantha Yowler. He too was killed, and she was pulled to safety by her brother, Nick Yowler 다운로드. Jonathan Blunk, 26, pushed his girlfriend, Jansen Young, under a seat. Again, he was killed, and she got out after the shooting was over. Young crawled out and realized she and her boyfriend were alone in the theater, only he was really wet, and she couln’t believe what had happened, so she tried to convince herself that someone must have thrown a water balloon 다운로드. (Here is Young in one of the saddest Today show videos ever, her trying to match the steady upbeat tones of the format while talking about gruesome stuff: “I think John just took a bullet for me,” she says 한글 타자 연습 프로그램 다운로드. “He provided me the opportunity to survive.”)
