Blog Today is Equal Pay Day, a reminder that women and men are not always compensated at the same rate. While the widely reported statistic that women, on average, earn 77 cents to every man’s dollar has been is a great indicator that women are put in situations every day that for a variety of reasons mean they earn less, it has been criticized for not measuring individuals of similar characteristics, such as age, occupation, education, or experience. To try to get a better understanding of the gender wage gap among specific age groups, and given that many high school and college seniors are on the brink of graduating and entering the labor force, I thought it would be interesting look at the gender wage gap by age and education, to see how women and men fare as they enter today’s unsteady labor market. To close the gender wage gap, women need to see real wage growth faster than their male counterparts.

Cabinet de Curiosités Ahhh Maison&Objet ! J’adore m’y rendre au moins une fois par an. Découvrir de nouvelles marques, faire de nouvelles rencontres : c’est toujours top ! Pour cette cession de janvier 2015 donc, retour en images sur mes petits coups de coeur. Chez &Klevering, beaucoup de jolies choses notamment du côté de la tendance tropicale. Chez Miss Print, on craque pour ces imprimés colorés. Immense coup de coeur pour la stand Objet de Curiosité. Côté vaisselle, ces belles couleurs sont chez Rina Menardi. Une de mes découvertes de cette année, la maison TANE. Ici, une ambiance cosy et chic signée D’argentat… Les lampadaires sont juste canons ! Dans un style beaucoup plus moderne, j’ai trouvé très chouettes les suspensions et les systèmes de rangements de chez Iris Hantverk. Encore de la vaisselle colorée : c’est chez Ekobo cette fois. Du design végétal dans un esprit très japonisant, c’est chez Aquaphyte. Pour les couleurs et les textures, Arcade Paris. Crédit photo : Céline Alata pour FrenchyFancy

S. J. Chambers The City that Ended Hunger :: Belo Horizonte, Brazil A city in Brazil recruited local farmers to help do something U.S. cities have yet to do: end hunger. posted Feb 13, 2009 “To search for solutions to hunger means to act within the principle that the status of a citizen surpasses that of a mere consumer.”CITY OF BELO HORIZONTE, BRAZIL In writing Diet for a Small Planet, I learned one simple truth: Hunger is not caused by a scarcity of food but a scarcity of democracy. But that realization was only the beginning, for then I had to ask: What does a democracy look like that enables citizens to have a real voice in securing life’s essentials? To begin to conceive of the possibility of a culture of empowered citizens making democracy work for them, real-life stories help—not models to adopt wholesale, but examples that capture key lessons. The city agency developed dozens of innovations to assure everyone the right to food, especially by weaving together the interests of farmers and consumers. “I knew we had so much hunger in the world.

Mountains of Books Become Mountains I thought I’d seen every type of book carving imaginable, until I ran across these jaw dropping creations by Guy Laramee. His works are so sculptural, so movingly natural in their form, they’ve really touched me. His works are inspired by a fascination with so-called progress in society: a thinking which says the book is dead, libraries are obsolete and technology is the only way of the future. His thoughts: “One might say: so what? Do we really believe that “new technologies” will change anything concerning our existential dilemma, our human condition? See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK Carving into the discarded stacks of books, he has created fantastic, romantic landscapes which remind us that though our fascinations and the value we put on different ideas have changed, we as a species have not evolved that much. “Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains.
