Global Gender Gap Report 2015

Despite an additional quarter of a billion women entering the global workforce since 2006, wage inequality persists, with women only now earning what men did a decade ago, according the Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2015.
The global gender gap across health, education, economic opportunity and politics has closed by only 4% in the past 10 years, with the economic gap closing by just 3%, suggesting it will take another 118 years to close this gap completely.
Is education failing women? The gap has widened in 22% of surveyed countries since 2006 and, while more women than men are enrolling at university in 97 countries, women make up the majority of skilled workers in only 68 countries and the majority of leaders in only four.
The Nordic countries still dominate the Global Gender Gap Index. Ireland is the highest placed non-Nordic country, ranking 5th. Rwanda (6), Philippines (7) and New Zealand (10) are the only non-European countries in the top 10; and the United States falls eight places to 28th.

Mississippi: Call for investigation over 'noose put on black student'

rights group in the US state of Mississippi has demanded a federal hate crime investigation after the family of a black high school student said white students put a noose around his neck.

The alleged incident took place during a break in football practice, according to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

As many as four students are believed to have been involved in the case.

The alleged victim, a second-year student football player at Stone High School in Wiggins, has not been identified. He has since returned to school and football practice.

Names and ages of the students accused have also not been released, but reports say they are all under 17.

In the 13 October incident, the noose was "yanked backward" while on the student's neck as the group was in the locker room, Derrick Johnson, president of the Mississippi NAACP, said.

"No child should be walking down the hall or in a locker room and be accosted with a noose around their neck," he told reporters.

Expel them! I hope the Feds get involved. Lock them Up!

No National Coverage for this murderer and cop shooter?


Police are hunting for an gunman in Oklahoma after he allegedly killed two people and wounded two police officers.

Authorities say they were called to reports of shots being fired in a caravan park near a highway in Wellston, a small town near the capital Oklahoma City, on Sunday evening at approximately 6:30pm (00:30am UK time).

When officers arrived at the scene the suspect, Michael Vance, allegedly began firing an AK-47 at officers.

The two other victims, believed to be family members of Vance, were found dead at the scene.

One officer was shot in the foot, another was shot in both legs. Both officers' injuries are believed to be non-life threatening, local news channel Koco reported.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office said Vance then carjacked a woman living in the caravan park and fled the scene.

Psssssssssst!! Exclusive investigation: Groper Don the Con faces foreign donor fundraising scandal


Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is facing a fundraising scandal after a Telegraph investigation exposed how key supporters were prepared to accept illicit donations from foreign backers.

Senior figures involved with the Great America PAC, one of the leading "independent" groups organising television advertisements and grassroots support for the Republican nominee, sought to channel $2 million from a Chinese donor into the campaign to elect the billionaire despite laws prohibiting donations from foreigners.

In return, undercover reporters purporting to represent the fictitious donor were assured that he would obtain “influence” if Mr Trump made it to the White House.

The disclosure raises questions about the origins of money being ploughed into supporting Mr Trump’s candidacy.

The PAC “consultant” who brokered the deal proposed using as a conduit a type of organisation he admitted is seen as being responsible for the “’dark money’ in politics”.

The revelations also highlight the apparent desperation of Mr Trump's supporters to finance the final weeks of his campaign amid a series of controversies and polls showing him losing in key states.

Mr Trump once labelled Super PACs a “disaster” that have “total control of the candidates”, and has criticised Mrs Clinton for relying on outside groups.

Undercover reporters posing as consultants acting for a Chinese benefactor approached specific pro-Trump and pro-Clinton fundraisers and groups after receiving information that individuals were involved in hiding foreign donations.
