Women We Admire: Erykah Badu
This is the first in a regular column featuring – who else? – women we admire. Today we feature Erykah Badu, one of the foremost musical artists of our time and one of SoR’s favourite singer/songwriters. Attending her concert in London July 2010 was one of the founding experiences of SoR. She gave us the conviction that we too could speak truth to power. Vegan, pro-woman, spiritually enlightening and politically empowering, Ms Badu is a massive inspiration to us all.
Who: Erykah Badu, Neo-Soul ArtistOur hero.
Why We Love Her: Badu combines feminism, veganism, revolutionary politics and her ‘hood’ southern Texan background to rep for women and those criminalised and marginalised by the system. We also admire her fearlessness and open critique of the music industry. She has shown herself unafraid to take artistic risk to make a personal/political statement. She’s a Tweeter, a mother, a lover and a fighter.
What she has accomplished: While her discography so far is already a life time achievement, with her last two albums Badu manages to surpass herself. New Amerykah Part 1 (4th World War) and Part 2 (Return of the Ankh) take the listener on an incredible auditory journey; the lack of wider success can only be explained with the notion that Badu is before her time. Through her genre-shattering combination of hip-hop and neo-soul she delivers subtle political messages that are never imposing or moralising. You could listen to her song “Soldier” and miss the anti-war message; but the one-line…

Desert flower

[‚Desert Flower‘ and ‚Desert Dawn‘]
The desert
Waris Dirie (Waris: a Somali name that means desert flower) was born in the middle of the
desert in Somalia. She was born into a nomad family of a tribe called Darood, tha t was
considered as wealthy. Nevertheless they lived under extremely poor conditions, their lives
depending from their livestock and rain.
Her family consisted of her parents, 12 children and there were even other relatives, who
travelled with them.
Many of her siblings died because of the rough conditions, illnesses and famine.
Every helping hand in her family was important in order to provide their chance of survival.
They couldn’t afford any day-off, because they had to move on to find water for themselves
and their camels and goats.
Their livestock gave them everything they needed to survive (milk, meat). Every now and
then they’d sell an animal to buy some rice or for great feasts they slaughtered a goat. There
were only a few feasts like the beginning of the rainy season (gnu) or weddings.
Birthdays didn’t count, because many babies died, so it wasn’t worth remembering the exact
date of birth if it wasn’t granted that the one would survive.
Usually the animals are the most precious thing a clan can obtain. When a girl marries, her
family gets some camels (Waris‘ fiance offered 5 camels). Camels are the most appreciated
animals, because they can live without water for some weeks, carry the clan’s belongings and
in addition to that they give milk.
Waris was raised in nature and freedom. Soon she learnt to trust her feelings and developed a
sense to smell the rain or find her family in the desert. The expert of trusting his feelings was
her father, who found them everywhere. Even when he couldn’t see anymore.
Soon Waris got chores she had to fulfil every day (tending the goats). She knew nothing else
than the desert and her greatest desire was a pair of shoes.
Her sister Aman was Waris’…


Each year Sam looks forward to the ring toss at the county fair. Sam is not happy to hit just any peg, but instead he prides himself on hitting the middle peg in the front row each year. Suppose Sam tosses the ring with an initial horizontal velocity of 8 feet/sec and an initial vertical velocity of 3 feet/sec and that he’ll release the ring when the ring is 4 feet above the ground. Sam lines up directly in front of the middle ring at a distance of 4 feet from the ring platform. Our job is to model the motion of the ring using parametric equations and find out whether or not Sam hits his target – the middle peg. The Ring Toss game is shown below. It sits on a short stool measuring 1 foot in height. The pegs are two inches high and the bottom of the first row of pegs is 4 inches from the bottom of the game.
We will think about the horizontal and vertical positions of the ring separately and write functions for each. These functions will be written as functions of time. Let x(t) represent the horizontal position of the ring at time t and y(t) represent the vertical position of the ring at time t, where t is measured in seconds and the positions are measured in feet. These equations are called parametric equations and t is called the parameter.Consider the horizontal position first. Since we know that Sam tosses the ring with a horizontal velocity of 8 ft/sec.According to the passage, the peg is 2 inches high and the bottom row is 4 inches from the bottom of the game. That makes the top of the peg 6 inches from the bottom of the game. However, there is also the short stool measuring 1 foot that the game is sitting upon, so in total, the top of the peg is 1.5 feet from the ground (vertical height). Sam is also 4 feet away from the ring platform, which is the horizontal distance. This information gives me the location of the ring as (4,1.5). Sam will hit his target peg, because when I looked at my sketch of the graph, (4,1.5) is on the path of…

In almost every society there are social inequalities, shaped by a variety of structural aspects
that are often underpinned by cultural identities.Such social inequalities occur whenresources are distributed unevenly amongst the people of a particular society, based on
customs of distribution which are usually socially defined categories of people e.g. race,
gender, language, religion etc. Economic inequality is one form of social inequality that has
a big impact on a society for example. Customs of distribution can also affect the allocation
of rights and privileges, social power, adequate housing, transportation, healthcare and
access to public goods such as education. Within South Africa, there are numerous ways
in which social inequalities influence the quality of education. This country inherited many
class, race and gender inequalities in the social, political and economic arenas, when
Apartheid ended in 1994 and these inequalities still have far-reaching effects today. Martin
and Griffiths (2012), use postcolonial theory as an explanation of how such inequalities
came about.
In this essay, I will analyse their argument in terms of how postcolonialism relates to issues
of power and representation and teacher development. In doing so, I will firstly, briefly, talk
about colonialism, particularly that of South Africa, and the impact it still has on cultural
representation. Secondly, I will discuss the impact it has on teacher development and
subsequently the perpetuation of social inequalities. Finally, I will discuss strategies to
address and possibly overcome these issues. I will also refer to Martin and Griffiths’ (2012)
analysis of the effectiveness of North-South study visits as a way to overcome the
misrepresentation of marginalised groups in society.2. IMPACT OF COLONIALISM ON PERCEPTIONS OF SOCIETY TODAY

North America Temperature Sensor Market Revenue and Value Chain 2014-2020

Temperature detection and measurement is a very important activity and has a variety of applications ranging from simple household to industrial. A temperature sensor is a device that collects the concerning temperature data and displays in a human-understandable format. Temperature sensing is the most controlled and measurable factor behind any critical application. The temperature sensing market shows continuous growth due to its need in research & development, semiconductor and chemical industries. Temperature sensing is gaining a lot of attention due to increasing adoption of HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning) for domestic as well as industrial use. Temperature sensors are primarily of two types, contact temperature sensors and non-contact temperature sensors. The contact temperature sensors are thermocouples, filled system thermometers, resistance temperature detectors and bimetallic thermometers. Contact temperature sensors are currently dominating the market. Non–contact temperature sensors like infrared devices have extensive opportunities in the defence sector due to their ability to detect thermal radiation power of optical and infrared rays emitted from liquids and gases. Request Free Report [email protected] The quality of a temperature sensor is measured in terms of standard characteristics such as response time, accuracy, repeatability and stability of output senility towards change in other physical environmental factors. Life of the sensor, termination style, probe type and range of measurement are a few other important specifications to be taken into account while considering commercial use.There is an increasing demand for temperature sensing in the North American market due to its applicability in defence, aerospace, chemical processing and automotive vehicular production sectors.

The article, “Time to Bury Legacy”, written by Robert DeKoven and published in the San Diego Union-Tribune(2003), claims that an affirmative action should be done to end the inequality among normal students and legatees. The article wasn’t completely consistent and the examples given were either unreliable or outdated. The writer opposed the legacy admissions and advocated equality among students.
DeKoven is a professor at California Western School of Law. This gives him credibility to argue about the actions of the Supreme Court. He didn’t support his main claim with convincing grounds whereas he offended the legacy (Legacies are a form of positive bias based upon one’s lineage). He presented counterarguments in paragraphs 8 and 9 but didn’t refute them appropriately (Private schools defend legacy practice because it builds school loyalty…). DeKoven didn’t discuss the legal issues related to the legacy admissions except in few paragraphs. He mentioned some statistics with no clear reference (in paragraph 5) and referred to outdated examples from 1964 and 1970 whereas his article was published in 2003. The paragraphs were very short and not developed well.
Red Herring fallacy can be detected in paragraph 11 where the writer related legacy to sexual and racial discrimination and this is not the case. There’s an oversimplification in the conclusion where the writer offered a very simple solution (affirmative action) to a controversial issue (legacy practice).
DeKoven mentioned the example of George W. Bush three times in his article as an appeal to values (Pathos). The intended audiences of the writer were the American people and government because he discussed the American law and listed the examples from American universities.
Overall, the article was not convincing enough despite that the writer had some correct points concerning the inequality among students. However, the solution he offered was not logical and it advocates discrimination in…
