Women in Gaza take aim at domestic violence

I´ve chosen an article about domestic violence against women in Gaza.

The article says, that there are still over 30% in the Gaza Strip that are exposed to (pysical) abuse in their homes, while there are 15% exposed to sexual abuse and nearly 75% exposed to pschological abuse, too.

The main reason for this - according to the report - is that, while the Israeli blockade halted imports and has cut jobs, the Gazan families have to survive with even less than before, which in the end…

ACT6

If I had the chance I would spend my money on women's health.
In addition I have found a video which I find very interesting
It is a disease that can be treated easily if enough money and doctors were available.

LEARN6

This week we should choose a story from WomenWatch. I chose the story „HEALTH: Treat the mother - save the baby”

This story is about to save the mother’s health during pregnancy and that’s the key to the babies’ survival.

The traditional childhood killers - measles, pneumonia and diarrhoea - are all down; even where malaria is still rife, treated bednets are saving children’s lives. But as deaths from other causes drop, mortality in the first month of life looms ever…

Egyptian votes and women's sad future

On May 23 and 24, 2012 Egypt started the first round of electing a new president. The article I dealt with is about women and their role in the revolution and in the votes taking place at the moment.

In Egypt's Arab Spring, women played an important role fighting for freedom and for their gender's rights on the streets and on the internet. But what happened afterwards? Did their efforts pay off in the end?

For a little moment it seemed as if things would change, but then the…

ACT5 - Mission 5: Thermoelectric Power On Demand

I own an Ipod which is why seeing the word "POD" on this site http://www.kickstarter.com caught my attention. I briefly scanned the description and decided to support it by donating a dollar. What impressed me most is the idea of carrying renewal energy with me when I'm outside. Renewable energy concepts usually catch my attention since the earth is slowly running out of its natural resources. What people need most nowadays is to find out how to…

LEARN6 - women's and children's rights

I have read many articles of the UN gender equality newsfeed page. And I've finally decided on the article "American girls raise awareness and money to fight child marriage in four countries". Thousands of American girls between the ages of 13 and 18 years fighting against the marriage of children. These girls help the UN Foundation's Girl Up campaign in four countries, Ethiopia, Liberia, Malawi, and Guatemala.…

LEARN6 - Mission 6: Teen pregnancy

Teen precnancy

Teen pregnancy is one of Madagascar's severe issues. Girls as young as 12 or 13 years old get pregnant because they lack education and birth control. Often the birth comes with a lot of other difficulties such as travelling to far away hospitals, high death rates right after giving birth and post-birth infections leading to dangerous diseases and sometimes even death. UN Population Fund revealed that the Sofia region has one of the highest death rates in the country, with…

"Complimentary Currencies"

My favorite solution is from the Futurist Douglas Rushkoff. He speaks about the alternative currency systems like "complimentary currencies".

In his article "Life Dollars: Finding Currency in Community" he speaks about "Life Dollars",an electronic currency used in the Pacific Northwest. Life Dollars are not exchanged for traditional currency. Instead, members of the Exchange earn credits by performing services or providing goods to one another.

Here is an example for such…

Pandemic Flu

“There are a lot of special things about outbreaks, but most important is that they're unfolding events. Nobody really knows where they're going and, especially in the beginning, there's high outrage and high concern in the absence of knowing what the hazard is”

– D*** Thompson, Team Leader, WHO Pandemic and Outbreak Communication
this is a quote from the doc**ent.

ACT10

the first episode for season two should be something to do with racism but I'm not good at writing so I didn't write a script

Added by Taine kelly on May 30, 2012 at 4:55am — No Comments

For Season 2 the evoke network should make one of the missions about racism in our world today, and should encourage famous people to join.
