Le « dévoilement » des femmes, une longue histoire française

Paris: Voice of the Suburbs. Widad Ketfi is a bold journalist for Bondy Blog, a news outlet set up to give young journalists in Paris' deprived suburbs an opportunity to shape their own narrative and combat negative stereotypes depicted in the mainstream media.

Paris: Voice of the Suburbs

One of the issues Widad feels most strongly about is the social inequalities that begin at school - her next assignment for the blog. For Widad's investigation, she travels around the suburbs of Paris, where she meets locals, teachers and students, while trying to track down the national education minister for an all-important interview. In an area where one in five people are out of work - double the national average - Widad sees education as key to empowering so many dispossessed youth, as it did in her own experience.

The kings of the Shang Dynasty—which ruled from the 16th to the 11th centuries BC—had questions. Questions about what the king should do, like whether to “perform a ritual for Father Ding and offer to him thirty captives from the Qiang nomad tribe as well as five penned sheep,” according to one translation (pdf, p. 5). As with many ancient human-rights abusers, the king turned to his royal soothsayers to decide the lives of these captives. The soothsayers etched these pressing questions directly onto the shoulder blades of oxen and the under-shells of turtles, which are also known as plastrons. They then poked the inscribed animal parts with hot metal rods until cracks formed. Tens of thousands of these etchings, known as “oracle bones,” have survived all the way to today. Chinese characters have changed considerably in the centuries since, but the biggest transformations are long in the past.

The Brains Of Hyperpolyglots, People Who Speak 6 Or More Languages, Function Differently Than Ours

Family secrets: Police officer involved domestic violence

Presented at the National Center for Women & Policing 1998 Annual Conference, Las Vegas, Nevada Historical Perspective It was the women's movement that brought the issue of domestic violence into the public arena in the late 1970s. By definition, domestic violence is a "family matter" that occurs in the seclusion of the home.

Your online accounts are points of access to your life both online and off. From email to social media to shopping, your accounts are crucial for pretty much everything you do through the internet.
