News Comment #26

This week, I decided to do my news comment on an article titled “These Somali Men Oppose Male Stereotypes to Fight for Female Empowerment” by Alice Rowsome on Vice. The article discussed the efforts of a Somali man named Khadar is challenging the societal norms of his country surrounding the women and girls. He focuses on issues like stopping female genital mutilation, violence towards females, and getting females to become involved in journalism which is a highly uncommon job for women in Somalia. Khadar stresses the importance of getting these women involved in the media as well as informing other men on these issues to try to make a change.

The lead for this news story is extremely effective as it explains how Khadar had to convince his sister not to perform female genital mutilation on her own daughter, and that really hooks a reader since this isn’t something one thinks about in Western society. It sounds horrifying, and is enough to make a person want to read about what this man is trying to do. This story is definitely news worthy because it had impact on about 98 percent of girls and women in these part of the world which is awful to even think about especially when it comes to FGM. It is an issue that should concern true feminists because girls like these are the ones who need feminism the most having to endure violence against them or being forced to undergo FGM for religious reasons despite the effects is not okay.

    You’re right about the story’s potential impact in Africa, but is that the audience? Vice is an American medium. Most of its readers will be American. Your last sentence is much closer, because many Somali immigrants have brought the practice here, where it is illegal. Currency and timeliness. Also human interest.

    關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。
