#metoo and please - The Codes of Gender [2010]

The Codes of Gender applies the late sociologist Erving Goffman's groundbreaking analysis of advertising to the contemporary commercial landscape, showing how American popular culture reflects, and in turn shapes, normative ideas about masculinity and femininity.

Communication professor Sut Jhally explores Goffman's central claim that gender ideals are the result of a ritualized cultural performance, uncovering a remarkable pattern of masculine and feminine displays and poses.

Jhally looks beyond advertising as a medium that simply sells products, and beyond analyses of gender that focus on biological difference or issues of objectification and beauty, to provide a clear eyed view of the twotiered terrain of identity and power relations.

Awesome kick-in-the-nutts interview from the Zeit with french economist Piketty:

ZEIT: The German Minister of Finance, on the other hand, seems to believe that a Greek exit from the Eurozone could foster greater unity within Europe.

Piketty: If we start kicking states out, then the crisis of confidence in which the Eurozone finds itself today will only worsen. Financial markets will immediately turn on the next country. This would be the beginning of a long, drawn-out period of agony, in whose grasp we risk sacrificing Europe’s social model, its democracy, indeed its civilization on the altar of a conservative, irrational austerity policy.

ZEIT: Do you believe that we Germans aren’t generous enough?

Piketty: What are you talking about? Generous? Currently, Germany is profiting from Greece as it extends loans at comparatively high interest rates.

ZEIT: What solution would you suggest for this crisis?

Piketty: We need a conference on all of Europe’s debts, just like after World War II. A restructuring of all debt, not just in Greece but in several European countries, is inevitable...

a judge in the Hague has ruled that the Dutch government’s stance on climate change is illegal and has ordered them to take action to cut greenhouse gas emissions by a hefty 25% within five years.

Lawyers say the precedent it sets could trigger similar cases all around the world. Already, in Belgium, 8, 000 citizens are preparing for a similar court case, with others pointing to another possible lawsuit in Norway. Although the case is only binding within the Netherlands, lawyers say that it will inspire lawyers and judges considering similar cases in many other countries.

In Ihrem neuen Buch gehen Sie mit dem Mainstream-Feminismus hart ins Gericht. Was verstehen Sie darunter und was sind Ihre Hauptkritikpunkte?

Es gibt heutzutage viele verschiedene Formen des Feminismus. Mainstream sind diejenigen, über die die Medien am meisten schreiben und die daher von den politischen Eliten die meiste Aufmerksamkeit bekommen. Mainstream sind die Ideen von konservativen Feministinnen, die hauptsächlich von weißen Frauen sprechen, von reichen Frauen, von Businessfrauen, von heterosexuellen und Cisgender-Frauen. Deren Probleme zählen, aber sie repräsentieren nicht die Erfahrungen aller Frauen. Ich plädiere für einen Feminismus, der sehr viel mehr intersektional ist, also mehr Frauen einbezieht.

We know over 200,000 young women and girls have been trafficked to work in cotton mills in Tamil Nadu, India. Recruited under false promises through a scheme called Sumangali. They are promised a lump sum payment after 3-5 years but often receive nothing. There is little or no training or health and safety equipment. Their freedom is restricted, often living in onsite hostels, and their contact with the outside world limited.  

STOP THE TRAFFIK is campaigning to end trafficking through this scheme and across the whole fashion supply chain.

Slavoj Žižek on Greece: This is a chance for Europe to awaken

The Greeks are correct: Brussels' denial that this is an ideological question is ideology at its purest - and symptomatic of our whole political process.

Britain is one of just 19 countries that still recruit 16-year-olds to the armed forces. A new report claims that younger recruits are more likely to suffer from PTSD, alcohol problems and suicide than those who join as adults. This video tells the story of David Buck who joined the army at 17 but now feels he was conned by misleading recruitment marketing.

Atomausstieg 2015 – gehen ohne Atomkraftwerke die Lichter aus?
Alle AKW könnten sofort abgeschaltet werden

Nicht nur das AKW Grafenrheinfeld, sondern alle neun noch laufenden AKW sind für die Stromversorgung überflüssig und könnten schon 2015 abgeschaltet werden. In einer aktuellen Studie im Auftrag von .ausgestrahlt hat das Energiewende-Beratungsunternehmens Arepo Consult die vorhandenen Stromerzeugungskapazitäten untersucht. Demnach stehen selbst unter extrem pessimistischen Annahmen (Dunkelheit, deutschlandweite Flaute, maximal hoher Strombedarf) rechnerisch genügend nicht-atomare Kraftwerke zur Verfügung, um den gesamten Stromverbrauch in Deutschland jederzeit zu decken...
