She’s a model.
Another story in the news about a young woman.She always seems to be a model, or part-time model. She is reasonably attractive If not the traditional model(tall, skinny), then a lingerie or swimwear model, but the kind of girl you would notice if you were walking along the street.The hook to get the reader’s attention. Why is it necessary to inform us that this girl happens to do part time modelling as well as her ‘day job’. Is this to tell me that I, as a man,
must find her desirable, and as a woman, must aspire to be like her? We don’t care if she is a model. Millions of much
prettier girls are not models. Another chapter on the pathway to all of society basing everything on ‘the look’, ‘the
sex appeal’ Or do we have to ask ourselves.
Are we so dumb as a species that we must be presented with everything labelled so as to make up our minds as how to respond? So if they tell us that she is a model, then our “she is really sexy/pretty..” mindset kicks in. As we can’t,
as it seems, think for ourselves any longer, and must be ‘fed’ our opinions. Another of these aspects is the ‘beauty pageant’. Why are we told that these women are models, and are so desirable that if we do not fall at their feet and worship them, then there is something wrong with us?
Reality check: these women may be mildly attractive. No more so than a woman we may see in a shopping mall most days. However, numerous visits to spas, make up artists, hairdressers, and a wardrobe from some of the most sort after designers being at their disposal, means that they are not beautiful, they are manufactured. These people never set foot outside their doors without intense preparation. Maybe it is because they know they are not the essence of desire, but the girl next door, once the layers have been removed. A lot of the blame rests firmly with the male species. We compete for female attention and want to show off our prize to other adoring males. “My girl is a model” as if this word is an automatic passport to beauty and adoration. She probably, as is most cases, did some cigarette promotions, or exhibitions, as eye candy'(see this blog)
I read a disturbing, yet all too familiar article the other day on the BBC website. Preachers getting Rich from Americas poor Now the reason for this article is twofold. Firstly it deals with the issue in general of this common practice, and secondly, it has affected me personally. It is the ‘TV Evangelists’
The one good thing I have to say is they they never took off in England, not to say that people in England or the UK do not follow them. I am saying that we do not have one that I know of or can think of. We always associate them with America, Africa, and Asia to name the main players in the game.
The counterpart to the worldwide movement named #MeToo, is my version of a movement, which is not countering the #metoo movement, but asking questions about relationships between male and female.
Throughout history, men have been the pursuers, the charmers, the chasers of women. Whole industries have made countless billions over centuries due to this basic fact. So now we have world where men are now on their guard when it comes to physical, and visual contact, and verbal interaction, with the opposite sex.
Degrees obtained via technology.
In most countries getting a university education is more important than ever. The importance of having one is underlined by the fact that 90% of jobs which have a path, or some type of progression need the applicant to be the holder of a degree.
But are the courses which are available, real preparation and theory to do a job, or just a piece of paper which tells the employer that the applicant has spent 4 years studying? and are the things being studied, actually being studied, or are students just gathering information and placing it in reports to present?

For thousands of years sport has been considered as activities for people to: enjoy, relax with, do for fun, bond people(teams), for exercise, for health, among others.
Sport now has taken on the mantle of big business. Listen to the words used today to describe sport, and you might be mistaken for thinking that you are at a business conference. Franchise, Brand, CEO, merchandising, label, image rights, advertising, floatations. In America sports such as the NFL, and the NBA are unashamedly called franchises. Read more
