Francesca Woodman – review

Her work carries echoes of all three traditions, but it evades categorisation. As a young woman, she photographed herself obsessively but often she appears as a blur of movement or a half-hidden figure, someone constantly trying to escape or hide. The end result is not self-portraiture, but a series of stills from a continuous performance in which she plays with the notion of the self, disguising, transforming and defacing her own body. One in three South African men admit to rape, survey finds. More than one in three South African men questioned in a survey admitted to rape, the latest evidence in the country of a violent culture of patriarchy.

Researchers found that more than three in four men said they had perpetrated violence against women. Nearly nine in 10 men believe that a woman should obey her husband – and almost six in 10 women also agreed with the statement. South Africa has one of the highest rates of rape in the world. Last year a survey by the Medical Research Council (MRC) found that 28% of men in Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces said they had raped a woman or girl. A new MRC study in Gauteng, the country's wealthiest province, found that 37.4% of men admitted having committed a rape, while 25.3% of women said they had been raped. The survey questioned 511 women and 487 men, of whom 90% were black and 10% white. Hitchens defeats Blair in Canadian religion debate - Faith, Opinion. The former prime minister said it was true that "people commit horrific acts of evil in the name of religion". But Mr Blair, who converted to Catholicism in 2007, said it was also true that religion inspires acts of extraordinary good.

And he said it was important not to condemn all people of religious faith because of the "bigotry or prejudice shown by some". Mr Blair also told the 2,700-strong audience in Toronto, Canada, the invasion of Iraq was "not about religious faith" but decisions on the war were "based on policy". He said it was "futile" to try to "drive religion out" and it was more important to concentrate on how to get people of different faiths to work together, particularly in the Middle East where the conflict would only be resolved if people worked across the "faith divide".

Sceptic Mr Hitchens, who has terminal cancer, likened God to a "celestial dictatorship, a kind of divine North Korea". He said it was not necessary to have "divine permission to know right from wrong". XXXLutz More-is-More Fastest Office Chair on the planet? 58 mph!!! Death From Above 1979 Little Girl Live.

Cleanup In Aisle Three: The Evidence Photos

A small selection of those North Port Police Department images can be seen here. The photos clear up a couple of points about William Tyler Black’s bizarre September 14 act of public indecency at a Walmart in Sarasota: • Crime scene technicians, armed with only a Q-Tip, are just as brave as any cop walking the beat. • Black was not carrying a copy of the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition while pleasuring himself.

Faisal Islam on Economics - Scrap the EMA and give the winter fuel allowance to someone on a cruise: welcome to the gerontocracy.

Giant Puppet. 3rd Eye - Carlo Ancelotti Is Told To Get Out Of A Women's Seat - Palestine Papers: Guardian’s own documents demonstrate veracity of Israeli version of 2008 offer (A contiguous Palestinian state with captial in Jerusalem) Standing in stark contrast to the Guardian’s Palestine Papers narrative – of Israeli intransigence and Palestinian weakness and humiliation – their own documents corroborate the widely reported Israeli offer, during the 2008 negotiations, which Mahmoud Abbas rejected: a contiguous Palestinian state representing roughly 94% of the West Bank with land swaps (part of Israel which would become part of the new Palestinian state) making up for the remaining 6%.

Ed Balls MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, in response to today's GDP figures, said: “It is clearly a matter of great concern that Britain’s economic recovery has now ground to a halt.

Concern that Britain’s economic recovery has ground to a halt

As the independent Office of National Statistics has confirmed, even after the effects of December’s bad weather, the UK economy saw no economic growth in the final quarter of 2010. “With families and businesses already facing both rising unemployment and rising inflation, the fact that the economy is now shrinking means the Conservative-led Government’s claims to have saved the economy and secured the recovery will ring very hollow indeed. “With consumer confidence low and public spending starting to be cut at the end of last year, it is no surprise that construction and services are the sector s hit hardest in these figures.

It has also pledged not to use the iPlayer as an aggregator or to launch its own social network. It will, however, continue to work with third parties to integrate further social functions into the iPlayer. “Radio and music will come out of BBC iPlayer, and we’ll develop a new stand-alone product,” said Erik Huggers, outgoing director of Future Media & Technology. ” All radio station sites, music events, podcasts and programme pages will be integrated to focus on interactive live radio, quick and seamless access to programming, support for new music and personalisation - on whatever internet-connected device you happen to have,” he said.

New Tory MP: ‘There can’t be widespread discrimination if gays earn more than straights’ - Pink News. A new Tory MP who made headlines with his attack on “feminist bigots” has also questioned how the country can be “riddled with discrimination” if gay people earn more than their straight counterparts.

New Tory MP: ‘There can’t be widespread discrimination if gays earn more than straights’ - Pink News

Dominic Raab, the 37-year-old MP for Esher and Walton in Surrey, claimed that men should start “burning their briefs” in protest at the “raw deal” they get compared to women. In an article for PoliticsHome, he argued that men are discriminated against from birth to death and are disadvantaged in a range of areas, including education, parental rights and the fact that they die younger than women and work longer hours.

Mr Raab also questioned the prevalence of discrimination in the UK by citing research which he said suggests that gay men and lesbians earn more than straight people. He wrote: “Gay men earn more than straight men, lesbian women more than heterosexual women. 'Undercover police officer' filmed in clown costume - Channel4 News.
