Between them, these 18-to-23-year olds represented all the G20 countries as well as other groups, including the European and African unions, Pakistan, the Middle East/North Africa, and indigenous peoples. Participants in the 10th annual summit of G(irls)20 were aiming to get the leaders of the world’s major economies to commit to achieving gender equality. Following a week of workshops and debate, they submitted a communique on May 30 to Ambassador Koji Tomita, Japan’s G20 sherpa, highlighting policies to promote young women’s economic inclusion. “Don’t be scared of differences,” Irene Evbade-dan, the Japan delegate, told Kyodo News in an interview. That is the message she wished to convey to the G20 leaders. “It’s not scary to include diversity. Stop trying your best to make everyone look the same. That’s not possible anymore. And don’t be scared of change.” Among the G20 leaders, there are only two women – … [Read more...] about Young women call on G20 to support gender equality

When she began painting graffiti on New York subway cars at the age of 15, Lady Pink stood out as one of very few women in that illegal and dangerous subculture. That was in 1979. Now, in her mid-50s, this petite woman with long, dark hair and hailing from the Amazon jungle in Ecuador has been making an above-board living from her art for decades and proudly declares herself a businesswoman. She has been called the "First Lady" of graffiti. "New York was ruined. There was a lot of crime and corruption, and everything looked terrible. We adolescents set out to beautify the city," Lady Pink -- real name Sandra Fabara -- told AFP in an interview in the Bronx, where she is painting a mural on the wall of Casita Maria, a community center for young Hispanics. Whereas the teen-aged Fabara had to dodge the authorities as she practiced her craft, she now is being guarded by a policeman while she paints, because an angry neighbor made a death threat against her. Fabara was featured in a classic … [Read more...] about ‘First Lady’ of NY graffiti now a businesswoman
PARIS: On the court Alexander Zverev has proved adept at shouldering the expectation heaped on him since his early teens, but off it the job of handling the business side of his tennis career is proving a more onerous task.So much so that the 22-year-old German will head to the French Open sounding just a little world weary and with few backing him to match or even better last year's run to the quarter-finals, still his best Grand Slam showing.When Zverev beat Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic back-to-back to win the ATP Finals last November at London's O2 Arena it felt like a launchpad to the Grand Slam titles long-predicted for the blonde-haired Hamburg native.Yet this season has been a let-down since reaching the Acapulco final in early March and putting together any sustained form has proved beyond his capabilities.The slump has coincided with an ongoing legal wrangle with former manager Patricio Apey, which has left Zverev with far more to worry about than just rocking up for his … [Read more...] about Tennis: Distracted Zverev seeks to rediscover spark
The cellphones known as 5G, or fifth generation, represent the vanguard of a wireless era rich in interconnected cars, factories and cities. Whichever nation dominates the new technology will gain a competitive edge for much of this century, according to many analysts. But a television network a few blocks from the White House has been stirring concerns about a hidden flaw. “Just a small one,” a TV reporter told her viewers recently. “It might kill you.” The Russian network RT America aired the segment, titled “A Dangerous ‘Experiment on Humanity,’” in covering what its guest experts call 5G’s dire health threats. US intelligence agencies identified the network as a principal meddler in the 2016 presidential election. Now, it is linking 5G signals to brain cancer, infertility, autism, heart tumors and Alzheimer’s disease — claims that lack scientific support. Yet even as RT America, the cat’s-paw of Russia’s … [Read more...] about News Russian network links 5G to health risks
By Katherine Lalancette The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I am of the opinion that dry shampoo isn’t just practical, it’s political. Hear me out: While guys can hop in the shower, slip on a clean shirt and scarf down a Clif bar in 15 minutes flat, most women’s morning routines involve a lot more time and effort. Especially on hair wash days. But thanks to dry shampoo, we too can sleep in and be “low-maintenance,” at least for a few days a week. It’s freaking equality in a can. But, alas, that equality is under attack. Rumours are swirling that the grease-nixing stuff could actually be bad for our hair, even leading to thinning and shedding. Code Red, my friends. Unwilling to part ways with my beloved Batiste, I turned to the pros to see if there was any truth to the claims. Read on for everything you need to know. Is dry shampoo bad for hair? For most of us, the answer is no, says Dr. Jeff Donovan of Whistler’s Donovan Hair … [Read more...] about Is dry shampoo bad for your hair?
