first_img25 November 2011 As South Africa prepares to mark 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children, human rights activists have called on men in the Eastern Cape to stand up against rape, “corrective rape” and child molestation. Addressing a small crowd at a men’s indaba in East London on Wednesday, the founding member of gender-based anti-violence NGO Men for Change, Nkosohlanga Mkonjwa, said socialisation and the roles of girls and women within the family dynamic needed to change if a shift in society’s attitudes towards women was to happen.Change in attitudes called for “Our women and girls need to be more empowered in their roles in a family,” Mkonjwa said. “The belief that ‘Johnny must kick the ball while Suzie sweeps the floor’ creates an environment in which men feel superior to women, and this manifests itself in society where men believe they can do with women what they please.” Human rights activist and provincial legislature member Nomsisi Bata said that as long as women could walk the streets at night without the fear of being raped, they had not yet tasted liberation in the true sense of the word. Bata urged young men to “stand up tall like real men should” and champion the struggle against women and child abuse in society.‘It’s up to the youth’ “If anyone can get the message across to the perpetrators of these crimes, it’s the youth,” she said. “They are the ones who can relate to these people because most of [the perpetrators] are in their age group.” Eastern Cape Men’s Sector NGO chairperson Reverend Lulama Ntshingwa expressed concern over the high failure rate of the province’s men’s organisations due to lack of funding. He said, however, this would not deter their organisations’ fight against women and child abuse in the country. “We’ll be out in full force during the [16 Days of Activism] celebrations in Mqanduli on 25 November to show our unwavering support for women and children.” Referring to the phenomenon of ritual murders, Ntshingwa said: “The realities of our social constructs and moral fibre that define society have become quite scary. We can’t live in a society where we have our women’s and children’s private parts being sliced off just to make a quick buck.” He said men needed to take a firmer stance against those who commit such atrocities by making their voices heard.

first_imgMicrosoft’s latest attempt to drag down Google has again fallen flat. But that hasn’t deterred Redmond, which insists it will press on with its high-profile “Scroogled” attack-ad campaign on Google’s Gmail and search. “Scroogled” launched last Thanksgiving across television, newspapers, YouTube and social media. The ads claimed that Google users were being Scroogled — a phrase intended to evoke the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol — because the search giant reads their email (in order to sell advertising in Gmail) and delivers slanted results for product searches (because Google mixes paid ads with normal search results).The campaign, however, hasn’t exactly had the desired effect. While more than 114,000 people signed a Microsoft petition asking Google to “stop going through your email to sell ads,” there’s little sign it had any impact on Gmail or Google search. A report from KQED late last week suggested that Microsoft was throwing in the towel on the Scroogled ads, although Redmond now insists that’s not true, as per this statement it provided to ReadWrite:Scroogled will go on as long as Google keeps Scroogling people. We know Google doesn’t like it when the facts come out. Chapter two of the consumer education campaign has shown people care about their privacy. More than 3.5 million people visited scroogled.com, and nearly 115,000 people signed a petition asking Google to stop going through their Gmail. Stay tuned for the next chapter.In other words: Pay no attention to that Microsoft official behind the curtain. We have always planned to run the Scroogled campaign until the end of time — or until we triumph over Google. Whichever comes first.ReadWrite editor-in-chief Dan Lyons noted last month that the Microsoft campaign was little more than “another pathetic smear campaign” against Google:The gist of the scare campaign is that Google is a scary, scary company that reads your private emails in order to send you targeted ads. “Even if you don’t use Gmail, if you send email to someone who does, Google goes through those emails to generate advertising revenue too,” Microsoft warns in material sent to reporters. Oh, and Microsoft points out that six class-action lawsuits have been filed against Google over this issue, and asks people to sign a petition “to tell Google to stop going through your personal email messages.”The latest ComScore search data for the U.S. reveals that core search market share for Google sites rose to 67% in January from 66.7% in December, a 0.3% increase. Microsoft sites also saw an increase, albeit a smaller one, in search market share — to 16.5%  from 16.3% , a 0.2% increase. Yahoo, AOL and Ask all experienced minor drops.In other words, if Microsoft really wants to boost its search presence, it may want to consider acquiring the also-rans. Its frontal assault on Google appears to be doomed to failure.Email usage is harder to track for a number of reasons, but KQED quotes Microsoft official Stefan Weitz acknowledging that the campaign hasn’t exactly unseated Gmail. “It’s a habit,” Weitz said, apparently referring to Gmail. “It’s like smoking. It’s hard to get folks to stop doing it.”Here’s another look at the late, unlamented first phase of Microsoft’s Scroogled campaign: 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Bing#Google#Microsoft#search Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img brian s hall Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
