Wonder Woman is No Longer a UN Ambassador

first_imgStay on target 11 Groundbreaking Female Comic Book ArtistsToy Tuesday: 11 Coolest Toys of 2018 Despite being sworn in as a United Nations Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls in October, Wonder Woman will soon step down from her post.The appointment, which would have the iconic comic book character be the symbol of an empowerment campaign launched in accordance with her 75th anniversary, will end on Friday. This comes after a public backlash in the weeks since the announcement.Multiple people had been critical of the decision. At the time of this writing, nearly 45,000 people had signed a petition calling on Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary-General of the UN, to reconsider the decision.The petition, organized by “Concerned United Nations staff members,” said that the institution should focus on electing a real person as an ambassador, instead of a fictional character with, as they put it, “an overtly sexualized image.”“Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent ‘warrior’ woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character’s current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit,” the petition read.The petition echoes a point that was made by others, saying that its decision to appoint a fictional character as an ambassador instead of a real person who’s championed for gender equality undermined the point the UN was trying to make. On Oct. 21, which was Wonder Woman Day at the UN, protesters lined the lobby with signs that said “I’m not a mascot” and “Let’s get real.”“The bottom line appears to be that the United Nations was unable to find a real life woman that would be able to champion the rights of ALL women on the issue of gender equality and the fight for their empowerment,” the petition continued.Some of the points made here are valid. The UN chose gender equality as one of its Millennium Development Goals, and the plan includes expanding education options for women and girls. If we want a symbol of female empowerment to lead a campaign to promote this, it could be a real flesh and blood human. There are many to choose from.Plus, having a woman or other champion spearheading any UN campaigns would be more universal than a Western comic book character.However, to focus on her appearance and her clothing is the opposite of empowerment. Wonder Woman’s outfits have been varied throughout the years, all depending on who is drawing her. It has nothing to do with how the character itself has inspired girls and diminishes the acts that made her a symbol.Jeffrey Brez, the UN’s chief of NGO relations and advocacy, said that Wonder Woman’s role was never meant to be permanent.“From the UN’s side, there was no plan for it to be much longer than this,” he said.It’s also the longest amount of time a fictional character has been an ambassador. Remember the time that Winnie the Pooh was an honorary ambassador for friendship? Or when one red bird from Angry Birds was one for climate change? How did that workout?last_img read more

Maintaining Your Niche in a Fragmented Media Environment

first_imgObviously, magazines struggle with this. At The Nation, we are in a constant uphill battle against a glut of information and practices. Our competitors in the digital space aren’t even our traditional competitors anymore—we’re competing with Mother Jones and The Atlantic, sure, but we’re also competing with non-print media (MSNBC, Alternet), YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, BuzzFeed, Netflix, and Google News. And we’re no longer competing in a niche universe—because of the aggregated nature of online content, our stuff is out there. EVERYONE’S stuff is out there. But what can we put out there that people can only get from us, by paying us? We’re not competing for eyeballs; we’re competing for eyeballs that will pay for the privilege of seeing.What’s interesting is that though people have amped up their newsfeeds, they haven’t stopped looking for intelligent information. TV and books have become smarter, and people have proven that they will commit to long series or writing if it holds their interest. eReaders have created a space for longer books, because people don’t mind reading long pieces that they’re not lugging around. The length itself doesn’t bother people, as long as they can commit to it on their own time.The trick is to create meaningful experiences for people living in a world glutted with information, through carefully selected (buzzword alert: “curated”) content and longer, more introspective pieces. Long form journalism in digital outlets? Absolutely. We’ve seen a return to long form narratives, in literature and journalism, which may seem anachronistic in a world dominated by short attention spans. Even BuzzFeed and Business Insider recently started their own investigative journalism units, focusing on long form. As Tom Junod wrote for Esquire, “…taken as a trend, the persistence of long form at a time when it’s been declared dead is a hopeful thing, not a trend at all but evidence that humans, as a race, are at last learning how to take our own complexity into account as we stumble into infinity, digital and otherwise.”In a world humming with “meaningful moments,” how do we maintain that meaning? How many shootings before we rally for gun control or just forget it’s a problem altogether? How many natural disasters need to decimate a country before we start thinking critically about global warming or we decide it’s “just one of those things”? It’s no longer media ‘s job to just deliver meaningful moments; instead, we need to deliver meaningful commentary and analysis on those moments.In 1963, my parents were both ten years old, and I was not even an imagining. Yet I understand the importance of marking that storied day that “America lost its innocence,” particularly for the media. JFK’s assassination was a betrayal of national consciousness, a curtain slashed through to reveal a dark underbelly of reality. A moment, a heartbeat, in a gunshot—we were a nation young, smart, and cavalier, ready to take on the world—and then, we were not. People wept openly in the streets. Walter Cronkite famously teared up. What I don’t understand is my reaction to the commemorative paper. I wish I’d bought a copy, only to prove it was real, but it felt wrong. It didn’t feel right to share the assassination of a president from 50 years ago with no context, no handholding, no exposition. Seeing it now, in print, pretending to be just another part of my everyday news cycle, made me feel more of an outsider, a person sharing a memory that isn’t her own, like I was some interloper, a person who didn’t have a right to someone else’s memory.Yet, how do we learn, if not from sharing memories and stories? Since the dawn of civilization, history has been preserved through story-telling. But what will it mean when we no longer have physical artifacts from a story, when there is no newspaper clipping, when a URL is tweeted in one second and lost a second later? How will we record time and memory? How will we build lasting identities? We will need direction—content and analysis that helps us discuss meaning, since we’re too saturated to create our own.President Kennedy’s assassination is a story worth re-telling, and the media has been all over the fiftieth anniversary. Has it only been fifty years? To me, it feels like a century ago. To my folks, it could have happened yesterday. I was at a rest stop off the Atlantic City Expressway on Saturday when I noticed something peculiar: On sale at a Starbucks of all places, right next to baskets of limited edition coffee beans, was a commemorative reprint of the Dallas Morning Star from the day President Kennedy was shot.I am intimately familiar with the headline. My father saved the copy of the New York Times from 1963. It is now framed and hanging in the basement of our house. This is something I have inherited. I keep print clips. I have an unsettling fear that I will forget a moment if I bear no tangible evidence of it. Moments were documented as chosen flashpoints in time, important events that we could remember even when we forgot. They help to form both our national and individual identities. Now, with the advent of social media and reality television, we document everything and anything, from bombings to breakfasts. We have created hyper-detailed accounts of our mundane lives, marking them “momentous.” But what happens when we saturate our world with details of our everyday lives? Do newsworthy moments even count anymore to the formation of identity, or do they become cultural jetsom, byproducts on our way to becoming the next Snooki or Honey Boo Boo? What makes a President’s assassination any more important than, say, buying a prom dress or taking your first cab ride?How do we determine what is meaningful?last_img read more

Premiums Rising 34 Percent For Most Popular Health Plan

first_imgPremiums for the most popular “Obamacare” plans are going up an average of 34 percent, according to a study Wednesday that confirms dire predictions about the impact of political turmoil on consumers.Window-shopping on HealthCare.gov went live Wednesday, so across the country consumers going online can see the consequences themselves ahead of the Nov. 1 start of sign-up season for 2018.The consulting firm Avalere Health crunched newly released government data and found that the Trump administration’s actions are contributing to the price hikes by adding instability to the underlying problems of the health law’s marketplaces.President Donald Trump puts the blame squarely on “Obamacare” saying the program is imploding, while ignoring warnings that his administration’s actions could make things worse.The Avalere analysis is for the 39 states using HealthCare.gov. Along with the increase for silver plans, premiums also are going up by double digits for different levels of coverage, including bronze (18 percent), gold (16 percent), and platinum (24 percent).Many states had higher increases. Avalere found that average plan silver premiums will go up by 49 percent in Florida, 43 percent in Missouri, and 65 percent in Wyoming.Consumers eligible for income-based tax credits will be protected from rising premiums but those who pay full-cost face a second consecutive year of sharp premium increases.Only three states will see declines — Alaska, Arizona, and North Dakota.Avalere said market instability is driven by Trump’s recent decision to end subsidy payments to insurers, the continued debate over “Obamacare” repeal and replace, and a presidential executive order that could open a path for lower cost plans outside of the Obama-era law.“You put all that together, and there are a lot of additional forces on top of market forces driving high premium increases for 2018,” said Chris Sloan, a senior manager with the health industry consulting firm.Significant increases also are expected in states that run their own health insurance websites.Starting Nov. 1, new customers can submit applications, and returning ones can make changes to their coverage. Open enrollment will end early, on Dec. 15, about half the time allotted under Barack Obama’s administration.Sign-up season comes after the president abruptly pulled the plug on federal payments that reimburse insurers for reduced copays and deductibles they’re required to provide to people of modest means. That exposes insurers to a potential $1 billion loss for the remainder of this year.A federal judge in San Francisco on Wednesday denied a request by state attorney’s general to order the payments immediately restored. Administration officials say the payments were not properly approved by Congress and Trump is following the U.S. Constitution by denying them.Bipartisan legislation to resolve the problem is pending, and the Congressional Budget Office on Wednesday said the bill would reduce federal deficits and have no major impact on coverage. But the legislation by Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D-Wash. faces an uncertain future. Trump has sent mixed signals about whether he would support it.Restoring the funds may have little immediate impact on 2018 premiums, but the bill calls for insurers to rebate money to the government and consumers if they collect too much.Avalere’s Sloan said that consumers who receive subsidized premiums would generally be protected from premium increases.That’s not the case, however, for an estimated 7 million unsubsidized customers, most of whom buy individual plans outside the government markets.“There is a danger that middle-class people who don’t get government help in paying their premiums could be increasingly priced out of the market,” said Larry Levitt of the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.About 10 million people currently have private health insurance through government-sponsored markets like HealthCare.gov. More than 8 in 10 customers receive tax credits to help pay their premiums, and that aid is still available despite the political turmoil.Unlike the Obama years, the Trump administration has set no enrollment goal for 2018.“We are really focused on having a smooth consumer experience,” said Randy Pate, director of the HHS office that oversees the program. “That is our target for this year.”Administration officials say they have made a series of improvements to the sign-up process unheeded in the acrimonious political debate over health care.

Intel updates Atom processor roadmap

first_img Citation: Intel updates Atom processor roadmap (2011, May 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-05-intel-atom-processor-roadmap.html So, it can be no surprise that, rather than creating a line of processor specifically for smart phone and tablet PCs, the company has chosen to work with an existing line of processors. The Atom processor line, a well-established line of processors for laptops and desktops, is getting some new members to the family tree. The line of processors are expected to change and grow over the next three years. There will be three new chips in the Atom family, one in 2012, one in 2013 and one in 2014. The chips are also going to show some significant changes with each generation released. The current generation of Atom processors has a 45nm technology node. Next years processors will be 32nm node, which are correctly sized to fit into a mobile phone or a tablet PC easily. In the following years we will see these chip numbers decrease, the chip that are slated to come out in 2013 are expected to have a 22nm technology node. That chip will be named the ‘Silvermount’. It will reduce the power usage from the current 40W to just only the use of 15W. The ‘Airmont’, 14nm Atom processor, is expected to be rolled out in 2014.So, you may soon see the trademarked “Intel Inside” on your next cell phone.

When the hardware inside mobile devices started to become a serious chunk of the processor market, the ARM chips have became the big name in that area. Like any good company with a strong position in the market Intel is looking to keep their number one spot and move into the mobile market in a big way. Explore furtherlast_img read more
