ICG Pours Water on Instability Claims

Contact us at [email protected] News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak Facebook Twittercenter_img News There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China International Crisis Group (ICG) yesterday released a new report, “North Korean Succession and the Risks of Instability,” casting doubt on claims of trouble in the regime evidenced by actions like the removal of V. Mar Lee Young Ho in recent weeks. Pre-succession, there was much speculation that Kim Jong Eun’s transition to power would not go smoothly; particularly compared to Kim Jong Il’s which followed years of careful grooming for the position. Many suggested that Kim Jong Eun was too young and inexperienced to take his father’s place without resistance. The recent and abrupt removal of V. Mar LeeYoung Ho from his Party posts by the Politburo on the 15th once again raised the suspicions of observers that there might be divisions at the top which could threaten Kim Jong Eun’s position.ICG’s assessment rejects these claims. Although it notes Kim Jong Eun’s succession appears comparatively “rushed” when set against that of his father, it asserts the belief that the young man’s position is secure and that those previous predictions that implied otherwise were based on “flawed assumptions and misunderstandings of North Korean ideology and political institutions.”Rather, the report claims, “Despite widespread speculation, several factors support the continuation of an extremely concentrated, one-man dictatorship. Chronic insecurity, a command economy, a strong tradition of democratic centralism, a complex structure of political institutions and a well-developed indigenous ideology all reinforce the Kim family cult and concentration of power. The apparent result is a smooth succession with little prospect for reform in the near future.”Supporting its assertions, the report claims that backing from the Chinese government, flows of information into North Korea and the state’s institutional structure (including the Chosun Workers’ Party, the security forces and mass organizations) all offer the regime vital support and sustain the Kim’s stronghold over the country are the keys to the regime’s longevity. Although it additionally acknowledges recent change in these three factors, and considers what these might mean for the Kim regime, the report concludes that none is substantial enough to truly disrupt leadership stability. “Despite the sudden dismissal of Lee Young Ho, there are no indications of opposition in the Party, state or military to the North’s second dynastic transfer of power,” it alleges. “Although many North Koreans are dissatisfied with the government, the barriers to collective action make it very risky and nearly impossible to organize any resistance.” It asserts that since North Korean institutional structures are designed precisely to discourage insurrection at every level of society, the removal of one is not sufficient evidence to cite a threat to Kim Jong Eun.The report declares in conclusion, “Any process for reform and transformation in North Korea could take a very long time. The two potential drivers of change are information inflows and marketization, but the regime recognizes the dangers of these subversive elements and expends extensive resources to prevent them from contaminating ‘our style socialism.’ If change does come, the rigid institutional structures and entrenched interests mean the elite are unlikely to go quietly.” News By Daily NK – 2012.07.26 3:00pm last_img read more

Technology Park Proposed for 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre

first_imgRelatedTechnology Park Proposed for 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre Technology Park Proposed for 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre AgricultureFebruary 4, 2009 Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Peace Corp volunteer, Stephanie Husfelt along with fellow volunteer Scott Trynosky, and Jamaica 4-H Clubs representatives will be working on a proposal to establish a technology park at the Jamaica 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre in Denbigh, Clarendon.“We are going to be working together to formulate a proposal for a technology park that will encompass a biodiesel project and gray water projects. There will be a greenhouse with aqua-hydroponics…there will be goats and rabbits, composting and other different sources of technology,” Ms. Husfelt informed, as she addressed members of the Manchester 4-H Clubs Parish Advisory Council meeting held at the Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) office in Mandeville on Thursday (Jan. 29).The proposed technology park will focus on alternate forms of energy such as biodiesel, which is a clean burning alternative fuel produced from domestic, renewable resources and contains no petroleum but can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend.There will also be major focus on aqua-hydroponics, which is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, without soil. Ms. Husfelt informed that there is small scale aqua-ponic project for schools that is an off- shoot of the proposed technology park and that she is also currently working on an aqua-ponic project at Holmwood Technical High, which is doing well.She added that they have received a US$2,000 grant to go towards commercial fishing.Another area of major interest for the proposed technology park is the establishment of vermicomposting heaps.“There will be two types of composting, the regular and the vermicomposting to allow for comparison,” she stated.She said that if the 4-H clubs training and production centre at Long Pond in Chudleigh, Manchester can be developed, a similar park to the one proposed for Denbigh will be established as well.The Jamaica 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre is one of 12 training and production centres that the organisation has across the island.Other training and production centres include: Bog in Westmoreland, Charlottenburgh in St. Mary, Font Hill in St. Thomas, Georgia in Hanover, New Forest in Trelawny, Roehampton/Montpelier in St. James, Rose Hall in St. Catherine, Salisbury Plain in St. Andrew, Thatchfield in St. Ann, Vernamfield in Clarendon and Warminster in St. Elizabeth.center_img RelatedTechnology Park Proposed for 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centre RelatedTechnology Park Proposed for 4-H Clubs Denbigh Training Centrelast_img read more

SA rugby teams, sponsors unite to tackle poverty

first_img‘ 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Published on September 28, 2020 Posted in News, Top headlines Tagged Rugby, Rugby Unites, sa rugby South African rugby showed its true potential this past weekend – first with a show of strength in Vodacom Super Fan Saturday at Loftus Versfeld, followed a day later by a show of heart through #RugbyUnites.Within the space of 48 hours, the Vodacom Bulls, Cell C Sharks, Emirates Lions and DHL Stormers went from being fierce competitors on the field at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday, to joining hands and packing 1,000 food parcels for #RugbyUnites and the two official charities of the Lizo Gqoboka Foundation and Ashraful Aid.The food parcels were made possible by the efforts of the four teams on the field, where each point at Vodacom Super Fan Saturday was rewarded with a R2,500 donation by Vodacom. A total of R330,000 was raised for #RugbyUnites, a South African Rugby Legends Association (Sarla) initiative to help combat the economic devastation in families caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.‘Within a month of the lockdown I was seeing people begging for food on the streets, and it grew from just the friends on my WhatsApp group to the rugby legends and current players becoming involved, and then amazing sponsors such as Cell C and Vodacom. People just want to do good, and this is changing lives in our country,’ said Sarla president Gavin Varejes as he joined players from all four teams and the sponsors at the official food parcels packing outside the Checkers at Loftus Park on Sunday.‘This is not about politics or religion. It’s about rugby players uniting our communities and changing lives. We’re extremely grateful to our sponsors and the rugby players because they are the ones who are helping us to go out there and make a difference.’Springbok and Cell C Sharks centre Lukhanyo Am was among the rugby stars helping to pack.‘We know people are struggling in South Africa. There are so many households where people aren’t getting their basic needs. So what we’re doing here to support them and give back to the community is very special to me,’ he said.Legendary Springbok captain John Smit was also involved. ‘Poverty is everywhere. You see it at every robot or on every street corner. People are struggling. It makes you realise the responsibility we have in this country. Being part of #RugbyUnites and seeing rugby coming together like this is amazing. Today we had all four of the big franchises here and the players were pairing up not just according to their teams, but they were mixing it up. This transcends provincialism. It’s about a shared responsibilty to help those less fortunate than us,’ he said.Both designated charities expressed their gratitude for the amazing show of unity and support on Sunday.‘I’m so grateful that companies like Vodacom and Cell C and the SA Rugby Legends are so committed to helping fight one of the giants in our country, which is poverty. To see all the players here united for this cause is amazing, and over 500 families will have food because of this,’ said Lizo Gqoboka.Suhail Wadee, director of Ashraful Aid, said the food parcels will go a long way towards supporting their efforts to tackle the economic fallout for so many families at this time.‘The pandemic has placed tremendous strain on households. It’s been a bloodbath economically for so many people in this country. We have hundreds of requests daily just for food. We’re so grateful to all of those here who are helping us to ensure that at least for the next month over 500 families will have something to eat,’ he said.Michelle van Eyden, head of sponsorship at Vodacom, said they were delighted to be able to support #RugbyUnites and, in the same way as the opposing rugby teams came together for this cause, join with Cell C in uniting around the alleviation of poverty.‘This weekend has been about celebrating what rugby does for South Africa, from the pleasure it brings the players and fans to be back playing again, to the way it brings us all together in support of charity. It’s a privilege for us to be involved in any effort to make a difference in our communities.’ ‘  120  18 Follow @JuandreJoubert on Twitter. ‘ Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby Magazine takes a look at five players who have only represented South Africa once but might do so again in the future.SA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsGetting a loan in Hong Kong may be easier than you thinkLoans | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoShop Bras Online | Search AdsBrilliant Bra and Panty Sets (take a look)Shop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAlphaCuteOprah’s New House Cost $90 Million, And This Is What It Looks LikeAlphaCute|SponsoredSponsoredUndocenter_img ‘ Shop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Post by Juandre Joubert ‘ SA rugby teams, sponsors unite to tackle poverty From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVSA Rugby MagUndo ‘ 熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoBuzzAura16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayBuzzAura|SponsoredSponsoredUndolast_img read more

Breaking Patriarchy At Its Root

Breaking Patriarchy At Its Root

first_imgWe live in a society where our everyday behaviours, thoughts and emotions are shaped by the patriarchal notions, that prevails in the structure of the society. A woman at every stage of her life, in fact even before her birth, was being subjected to the evils of the male-dominated society. Patriarchy is unique, as this oppression is prevalent globally but still many of its aspects are undermined by the society or remain hidden in the structure such that it was noticed by none, even man of the women who are subjected to it fails to notice. In Indian society, in particular, the patriarchal norms and values are also a result of caste and religious inequalities that haunts the society. The most familiar example is the restriction of women entry into Sabarimala Temple in Kerala.Normalisation of PatriarchyThe transmission of patriarchal values and ideas from one generation to another occurs in the socialisation process. Socialisation is the process of internalising the norms and ideologies of society. During and at the end of the process, the individuals, be it men or women adjusts to the group or the society from which they socialised, and learns to behave in a manner as approved by the society.  This socialisation process forms the basis for the normalisation of patriarchy in society. So, any attempt for a social change that is sustainable and egalitarian, should start from the socialisation process.Primary and Secondary SocialisationSocialisation occurs at two levels – primary and secondary.In primary socialization, a child accepts and learns a set of norms, values, attitudes. For example, if a child sees his or her mother expressing hatred towards anybody, the child may think this behaviour is acceptable and could continue to practice hatred towards others.In secondary socialization, the child learns what is the appropriate behaviour as a member of a smaller group in a larger society. Secondary socialization takes place outside the home. The children and adults learn how to act in an appropriate way in a situation. Schools require very different behaviour from the home, and children must act according to new rules.The Chain of TransmissionSo, the social institutions involving in the process of socialisation- both primary and secondary-should undergo a radical change from the present, in their approaches of socialising the new generation. Socialisation by any of these institutions is influenced by the patriarchal values of the society. Identifying the patriarchal values and norms in these institutions and replacing them with egalitarian value will break the transmission chain that helps in carry patriarchy across generations.Let us see with some examples,The key social institution in the primary socialisation process is the Family. The behaviour of the parents has a great influence on the child. In Indian society, there is a notion that males are breadwinners and women are homemakers, which itself is a result of the patriarchal norms. So, any child witnessing his/her father going to job and mother doing. Thus, the occupational segregation that we see in the labour market has its root in the Family. During this, the child ability to think critically about such a notion is not developed. Hence the child accepts this uncritically. This is a vicious cycle – the socialisation process leads to an unequal labour market, the unequal labour market again has its worst effects on the socialisation process.Even the toys are given to the girls and boys during their childhood also has their effects. Often the boy child was given a bike or car toy, whereas the girl child was given a barbie doll-like toys. Over time this will give a superiority notion to the boy child, against the other gender as possessing a bike or car was often seen in terms of the status of a family in our society and is often associated with boys.Schools are important secondary social institutions. The present arrangement in schools and colleges is such that the patriarchal notions went unnoticed and hence normalised. Even women who are subjected to this, often accept this as a legible one. Let us look at this with a simple exampleEven today many school books of lower classes contain a picture of a family where the father was depicted as going to a job and the mother was doing household chores. Here comes the coincidence of the primary and secondary socialisation. As mentioned above a child sees the same kind of situation as in the book, in his/her home. This makes the child believes that this is how society operates.Another common example is the selection of the School Pupil Leader. Till now in most of the schools, there is an unwritten rule that School Pupil Leader should be boys and the girls will be given Assistant School Pupil Leader position. It is one of the very apparent features of the male-dominated society, but no one really questions this. This has a worse impact on society, as it makes the youths in the school believe that men are superior to women. So, what really happens here? We are assigning a gender to a term (here, School Pupil Leader), which is originally a gender-neutral term. Whenever students here the term they associate with Men. This forms the basis for the harassment of women at workplaces, despite being occupying top positions.In my college for the Students Union Chairperson Post, interviews will be held for both boys and girls, but always the final winner will be boys. So here though it appears that the process is gender-neutral, the output is already decided. The usage of the term Chairman instead of Chairperson in many places even now is another example.So here the socialisation pattern is such that, the male finds it difficult to accept women leadership at workplaces, institutions, corporates, organisations etc.But a big relief is that there are men and women who, over the years become aware of this pattern of socialisation and absolves themselves from the clutches of the patriarchal norms of the society and are being gender-neutral.Breaking the chainRedefining the socialisation process will be the solution.Primary Socialisation: Make your child believe that the world is for everyone through your actions. A working male in a household, cooking for some time with his wife or helping her in her work will make a great difference to the child. This develops a sense in the child that no job is restricted to no one and no one is restricted from doing any job.Secondary Socialisation: Making the words and pictures in the school books of lower classes gender-neutral, helps a lot. Say a picture of a family can be shown as a father and mother doing household chores together. This will make the child thinks that why the family shown in the book and his/her own family was totally different (in the case of a household where the father goes to job and mother do household chores).The selection process in any kinds of posts in schools or colleges should not be based on gender. This makes every student (boy/girl/another gender) work together under the leadership of another student (boy/girl/another gender).Thus, a permanent social change is in the hands of future generations.I am not sure whether the youths and students are the future of India. But every youth will be a parent in the future. So, the responsibility of these youths/parents should be to make their child, being men or women, not to act as men or women.last_img read more
