In One Video, These Students Remind Us What's Really at the Root of Rape Culture It's no secret that toxic masculinity — the set of aspirational tenets that encourage men to feel entitled to women's attention and bodies — is a major problem. But one group of students is tackling the issue with an incisive new video that both expertly outlines the root of the problem and gives advice on what everyone can do to fix it. In the video, Vine star Chaz Smith joins the One Student project to address the ways men can help cultivate a culture in which women's bodily autonomy and agency are affirmed and respected. The video uses the analogy of playing sports to make a striking point about the ways women are encouraged to "play it safe" while men are lauded for "going for it." "Because [men are] told to play offense," Smith says, "We feel that we are entitled to aggression — so girls and women are told to be aware, self-defend.

Moreover, due to the lack of linkages between the departments, each service has its own manual or digital database which leads to repeated verification of the citizen based on the service requested and generation of duplicate and redundant data. In essence, the current service delivery mechanism is department-centric wherein the citizen approaches several departments to avail different services. An approach based on Service-oriented Architecture (SoA) has been adopted for developing the framework for e-district to introduce flexibility in the service delivery mechanism.

girls' world: 10 nyc student photographers capturing girlhood in 2016 In a photography world ruled by artists like Petra Collins and Olivia Bee, it often seems that the most shared and discussed images in 2016 are being taken by younger and younger female-identifying artists. And in the age of Instagram, these emerging artists are able to share their aesthetic visions, inspire one another, and connect more than ever. Now in college, the first generation of women to be raised on social media are channeling the power they hold in representing their friends, and forging a modern image of young womanhood.

Where most would take to the outdoors, the London-based photog creates landscapes in his studio. Previously, we shared his surreal photo series Foodscapes: landscapes created using all manner of edible products. His most recent project is a departure from his work with food, and perhaps posed an even greater challenge. Dubbed “Bodyscapes,” the series turns the ridges, hills and valleys of one or more human bodies into strange and surreal landscape photos.

e-District Government of India has approved the National eGovernance Plan (NeGP) in pursuance of its policy of introducing e-Governance on a massive Implementation Guidelines scale, as enunciated in the National Common Minimum Programme. 27 Central, State and Integrated Mission Mode Project (MMPs) along with 8 support components have been identified and approved by Cabinet under NeGP, to enable and facilitate rapid introduction of e-Governance in the country, with focus on service delivery.
