British people think their media is the most biased and right-wing in Europe - and they're probably right | Voices | The Independent
Just two individuals - Rupert Murdoch and Lord Rothermere - controlled a staggering 52.2 per cent of online and print national news publications in the UK in 2013 [...] All of these newspapers either backed the Conservatives or Ukip in the most recent election and are all considered traditional right-wing publications. If you add up the readership of these right-wing newspapers, they account for a staggering 69 per cent of national newspaper readership in Britain in 2013. Left Foot Forward concluded their analysis by stating that “over three quarters (77.8 per cent) of the press is owned by a handful of billionaires.”

Terror: Wer sind "die", wer sind "wir"? - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Worthülse "unsere Werte" [ trotztem bleibt es, jeder fuer sich ] "Unsere Werte", diese Wendung ist derzeit äußerst beliebt - und gefährlich. Denn sie suggeriert Einigkeit, wo keine ist. Das muss und darf nicht so bleiben. [...] "Unsere Werte". Diese Wendung ist seit den Anschlägen en vogue. "Wir geben unsere Werte nicht auf", schrieb die "Frankfurter Rundschau" und änderte die Überschrift später in "Die Freiheit nicht aufgeben". "Wir werden unsere Werte verteidigen!", formulierte "Der Westen", als würden die Redakteure gleich einen halben Tag frei machen, um selbst zu den Waffen zu greifen. //&!

The blame for distorting our view of women doesn’t lie just with advertisers | Lucy Mangan | Comment is free | The Guardian
If we objected strongly enough to warped views of female bodies, women would take our custom elsewhere. But we keep buying the brands that offend us [...] But the lack of change in this area suggests consumers are not changing their spending habits. And as most of the consumers of the brands and products these advertisers are selling to are women purporting to hate this kind of thing, we have a conundrum: why are we still doing this? Why aren’t we putting our money where our mouths are? And then, obviously, in further solidarity taking our mouths off for a pizza somewhere? [...] Asking, or compelling by legislation, advertisers to do this runs counter to almost every prevailing ideology and trend. It asks that moneymaking ventures act for the greater good instead of the bottom line. It asks government to chip away at a cornerstone of the free market. It conceptualises women as hapless victims of intangible forces.

Sexualkunde-Reform in Niedersachsen: Schüler wettern gegen Abgeordnete - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Pläne der niedersächsischen Landesregierung zur Sexualkunde sind der CDU-Landtagsabgeordneten Karin Bertholdes-Sandrock nicht geheuer. Sollen Kinder wirklich darüber aufgeklärt werden, was zum Beispiel "transsexuell" bedeutet? Sollen Homosexuelle im Unterricht davon erzählen, wie sich Diskriminierung anfühlt? Lieber nicht, sagt Bertholdes-Sandrock, von Beruf Gymnasiallehrerin für Deutsch und Politik. Sie glaubt, das Thema überfordere die Jugendlichen. Schülervertreter in Niedersachsen finden das empörend. "Dass Frau Bertholdes-Sandrock davon spricht, dass es unverantwortlich sei, Schüler mit Homosexuellen unbeaufsichtigt zu lassen, ist wirklich traurig und höchst diskriminierend. Es schockiert mich", sagte Helge Feußahrens, Vorsitzender des Landesschülerrats Niedersachsen. [...] Vermittlung von Toleranz im Bildungsplan verankern. Homosexualität, Bisexualität, Transsexualität und Intersexualität solle an Schulen "verbindlich thematisiert werden". + ! youtu.be/MwXODqOy9Ic

This Labor Day, Reflect On Diversity And The Future | TechCrunch
Our increased awareness has meant that more and more news stories have come out about the bad behavior of members of our community. The list is long, from startup CEOs and their fraternity-era emails, to venture capitalists who attempt to turn pitch sessions into romantic evenings. Yet despite such discussions, there remains a virulent group opposed to efforts to make our culture more inclusive, opposition that I honestly have never quite understood. Thankfully, women are starting to get the infrastructure to support their technology careers that they should have had years ago. While shaming is a useful and important tactic, ultimately it is our ability to foster the next generation of female engineers and entrepreneurs that will change our culture for the better.

BBC News - 'Deeply elitist UK locks out diversity at top'
http://bit.ly/1lubeuO - The interests of those who dominate British society are disparate; indeed, they often conflict with one another. The establishment includes politicians who make laws; media barons who set the terms of debate; businesses and financiers who run the economy; police forces that enforce a law that is rigged in favour of the powerful. The establishment is where these interests and worlds intersect, either consciously or unconsciously. It is unified by a common mentality, which holds that those at the top deserve their power and their ever-growing fortunes, and which might be summed up by the advertising slogan "Because I'm worth it". This is the mentality that has driven politicians to pilfer expenses, businesses to avoid tax, and City bankers to demand ever greater bonuses while plunging the world into economic disaster. All of these things are facilitated – even encouraged – by laws that are geared to cracking down on the smallest of misdemeanours committed ...

[...] If you create an environment wherein a whole class of entrepreneurs and employees goes unnoticed by deeply flawed industry-wide “pattern recognition” heuristics, and/or one where they have to be perpetually on their guard, and must pretend not to notice all the myriad microaggressions that make them feel vulnerable and uncomfortable and out-of-place then many of those entrepreneurs and employees will decide, rightly, that the tech industry is not worth the hassle and grief. + http://craigconnects.org/2014/08/why-men-must-lean-in-to-support-womens-leadership-2.html

Psychologie Heute-Shop - Greiner:Schamverlust Schamverlust 9783498025243
Schäm Dich! Jugendliche, die auf ihrem Handy pornografische Darstellungen betrachten, schämen sich nicht mehr unbedingt wegen der Inhalte, sondern eher, wenn ihr Mobiltelefon älteren Datums ist. Mit dieser Alltagsbeobachtung will Psychologie Heute-Rezensent Till Bastian zeigen, dass bei Kindern und Jugendlichen heute unter gewissen Umständen die Statusscham stärker in den Vordergrund tritt als die Sexualscham. Ulrich Greiners Buch, in dem er den „Schamverlust“ (Rowohlt, € 22,95) in unserer Gesellschaft analysiert, findet Bastian „leider bemerkenswert unpräzise“, obwohl es „etliche interessante Überlegungen zur Literaturgeschichte bietet“. Seinem selbstgesetzten Ziel, den „Wandel der Gefühlskultur“ zu erklären, wird Greiner aus Sicht des Rezensenten nicht gerecht. Die ganze Rezension ist in der Augustausgabe ab Seite 84 zu lesen.

ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, VIOLENCE, AND THE STIGMA OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
What is shameful is not being a victim of violence, or having a termination as a result, or receiving threats, or falling apart, but instead being a complicit part of a society that says that victims should remain silent and hide the crimes of others, as well as their own frailties.
