Women and Peacekeeping Missions

first_img In a remote corner of an African country experiencing conflict, government forces abuse a 14-year-old girl. Who would the young woman be more likely to talk to about the incident and give names to: a man or woman? Elsewhere in the same country, UN forces are attacked at night, but during daytime, the situation seems completely normal. In other words, there are armed groups that operate chiefly at night. The elderly women probably have detailed insight into the village’s movements. Who is the best person to seek them out and gather information: a young male officer or a young woman who will interact with them and earn their trust? Women as representation versus women who contribute capabilities Uruguay deployed a significant number of women in the peacekeeping contingents for the Sinai peacekeeping mission in the 1980s. The measure allowed Uruguay to meet the “female representation” requirement. However, this meant that female personnel were often relegated to secondary roles in the mission, since they were deployed to be present and represent their gender but not act. Today, almost 40 years later, women in the Uruguayan Armed Forces fully undertake a wide range of difficult tasks on equal footing with men. And it should also be noted that experience in the most diverse theaters of operations confirms the unique ability of female service members to interact with local communities. To put a rather complex interaction into simple terms, let’s consider two examples: By Uruguayan Army Colonel Roque García May 03, 2018 United Nations (UN) peacekeeping missions are complex environments in which to live. Usually, they are located in armed conflict areas where the international community sends uniformed men and women to stabilize the situation, and pave the way for political negotiations for a nonviolent path out of the conflict. Uruguay has a proven track record on peacekeeping missions that predates the creation of the UN. In the 1930s, a team from the Uruguayan military deployed after the Chaco War [between Bolivia and Paraguay] to ensure a successful peacebuilding process. But peacekeeping missions truly took off after the Cold War ended, when it became easier to build consensus within the Security Council. Uruguayan troops deployed to Cambodia, Mozambique, Angola, Congo, and Haiti and carried out missions assigned to them with honor and dedication. Today, Uruguay is the proud recipient of multiple distinctions for its professionalism under difficult circumstances. The success of this South American nation in such faraway lands is, without question, closely tied to the idiosyncrasies of our republic, our education based on Varela’s reforms [José Pedro Varela was president of Uruguay in the late 19th century], and our humane approach to terrible conflicts. Women’s participation to peacekeeping operations proved useful and valuable, a fact numerous studies backed up. As such, the UN launched a campaign in 2017 asking member states whose troops participate in peacekeeping missions to increase the percentage of women deployed to 15-20 percent of their total. This represents a true challenge for Uruguay. The Uruguayan Armed Forces only deploy personnel on peacekeeping missions on a voluntary basis. To reach these levels of effective participations, the yearly number of female volunteers in conflict areas would have to increase significantly. How to achieve this? Uruguay attempted to tackle the problem of increasing female participation in peacekeeping missions. We believe this will only be possible if we take the proper approach based on three key pillars: Deploying women based on their capabilities rather than to meet targets for representation. Deploying women because they are truly needed in the operations and not because it’s politically correct. Understanding that it’s a social issue and should be handled accordingly. These two examples show how women in uniform bring unique capabilities to peacekeeping operations. Obviously, female personnel need preparation to understand the customs, culture, and operational context in which they are to interact. Their unique contribution is not merely limited to interacting with local communities. In other internal matters, mixed-gender teams ensure better operational performance. Political correctness versus operational necessity The mere quest for political correctness has at least two flaws when it comes to achieving real change in complex structures with long historical traditions, such as the armed forces. The first flaw is that what might be correct in a political setting may not be as such in another setting or must be approached differently. The second problem is that political correctness often fizzles out as wishful thinking without concrete results. Fanciful proclamations about the role of women that are not backed up by specific steps and measures will not change reality or will amount to nothing more than women holding positions just to meet gender quotas. If, on the other hand, the specific capabilities that make women assets to an organization are identified, the organization itself will press for their inclusion. For example, no one disputes the fact that a battalion must have a proper medical support team upon deployment. Medical capabilities are vital, and both the organization and its members not only support them, but require them. This paradigm shift is obviously linked to recognizing, identifying, and improving the unique capabilities that women bring to peacekeeping operations. Women in peacekeeping operations: everyone’s concern Women’s impact on the communities they interact with is enormous and countless. The simple fact that young men and women in vulnerable areas see female personnel in leadership positions sparks real and undeniable questions about the roles society imposes on gender. Ideologies that intrinsically underestimate women are exposed to the fact that there are other ways to organize society—and that those ways are particularly successful. The blue helmets come to build peace, and women among them play a key role. But there is also an important social impact on communities that deploy military personnel on peacekeeping missions. How do Uruguayan men and women handle the most important stress factors, which are ever-present on peacekeeping missions, such as physical risks, separation from loved ones, and the day-to-day life of a group of people in a remote place? The answer to this question also puts into question the way men and women relate, and helps reconstruct that relationship. It’s essential to reiterate the role society plays in this initiative, both in missions and in Uruguay. Only by understanding this social value can we turn an initiative into a public policy that receives society’s full support. If society doesn’t stand behind it, it simply will not succeed.last_img read more

Some party-list seats are up for sale, bares Comelec exec

first_img“I am personally against the gaming of the party-list rules because a lot or some of them sell their seats after they win,” says Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon. ABS-CBN NEWS “It is not correct to say that the rule is they can change anytime of the year. Anytime even if there’s only three months left in their term,” Guanzon said. According to Guanzon, nominees could only withdraw, replace, or change the order of their nominees only up to election day or at the close of the polls. “Now if there is a vacancy, they go through their lists because we are required to submit to the speaker who those are going to be on the list, the next on the list,” Guanzon said. Guanzon also said that the Commission on Elections issued a minute resolution in 2012 stating that a party-list could only submit a new list of nominees if there was a vacancy declared by the Speaker. MANILA – Elections commissioner Rowena Guanzon bared that some party-list groups that won during the 2019 midterm elections are selling their seats in the House of Representatives. “There is a law, the Party List Act, and our rules that say they can submit, they can change their list up to close of polls or election day,” she added. “That’s when they can change their nominees or they can add to it if their lists are already exhausted.” “I am personally against the gaming of the party-list rules because I’m sorry to say that, in truth, a lot of party-lists or some of them sell their seats after they win. They change their representatives or nominees,” she added. Guanzon said during the Senate hearing on the pending bills on the conduct of elections that this was done due to the substitution of party-list representatives or nominees. “There must be a vacancy. The representative must have assumed officer and then resigned, or died, or withdrew,” she added./PNlast_img read more

Other passionate welcomes to rival Loris Karius’ arrival at Besiktas

first_imgLoris Karius called the reception he received from Beskitas fans ‘overwhelming.’The goalkeeper was making his way through the airport in Turkey to complete his two-year loan from Liverpool, but it took him a while as he had to navigate his way past thousands of screaming fans. Proud to be part of the famous @besiktas family now. Your welcome at the airport yesterday was simply overwhelming! I will give it my all to win with Beşiktaş.🦅A big Thank You goes out to all of the Liverpool fans for the support until now – you indeed never let me walk alone.— Loris Karius (@LorisKarius) August 26, 2018 A massive crowd of Besiktas fans showed up to welcome Karius at the airport. 👏— Liverpool Family (@lfc_family) August 25, 2018It’s something not uncommon in Turkey and here are four of’s favourite examples, beginning with Darius Vassell.DARIUS VASSELL AT ANKARAGUCUOpinions of Darius Vassell will vary, but even the man himself must have been surprised by the reception he was given upon transferring to Turkey. Fans of Turkish side Ankaragucu treated the striker to a hero’s welcome when he first touched down in 2009, as if he was one of the game’s greats.KENNY MILLER AT BURSASPORNot to be outdone by Vassell, Kenny Miller was treated like a god when he started out his own journey through Turkish football in 2011 when he signed for Bursaspor.DIDIER DROGBA AT GALATASARAYHaving scored eight goals in 11 games for Shanghai Shenhua, Drogba joined Galatasaray in 2013 and looked like he was doing his best to pretend that fans turning up at the airport in their thousands and lighting flares to say hello happened all the time to him.ROBIN VAN PERSIE AT FENERBAHCEVan Persie looked impressed by what he saw when he joined Fenerbahce from Man United in 2015. “I promise you one thing: I will do everything in my power to help Fenerbahce win as many trophies to make you happy. Let’s do it together,” he told them.AND WHAT ABOUT THE GALATASARAY FANS WHO ‘WELCOMED’ MANCHESTER UNITED’S PLAYERS TO ISTANBUL?Manchester United entered Galatasaray’s cauldron in 1993 during a Champions League clash between the two sides. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson later admitted the club had been “exposed… to as much hostility and harassment as I have ever known on a football expedition.” The message from the Turkish fans to their English opponents? ‘Welcome to Hell,’ which Gary Pallister called “a terrifying business,” in his autobiography, adding it “had nothing to do with sport, and can be categorised objectively as an absolute disgrace.”last_img read more

Interpretation Must Not Outrun Evidence

Looking out the window, they all noticed a lone black sheep on a hill. The psychologist intoned, “Well, what do you know. I didn’t realize the sheep in Scotland were black.” The biologist corrected him, saying, “You don’t know that all the sheep in Scotland are black – just some of them.” Piping in, the mathematician retorted, “Tut, tut, tut, to be correct you must say, ‘At least one’ sheep in Scotland is black.”The physicist had the last word, though, stating, “Gentlemen, all we know with certainty based on our observations is that at least one sheep in Scotland is black on at least one side, at least part of the time.”Moral:  There are hard and soft sciences, and extrapolation is not always justified.Application: Microevolution vs. macroevolution(Visited 383 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

The Complete Video Editor’s Guide to Working with Music

first_imgTips for Using Loops and StemsImage via PrinceofLove.Once you decide on your song (or songs), you might want to consider taking advantage of working with loops and stems. For those who are unfamiliar with those terms, stems (which can also be called submixes or music stems) are all the individual tracks that go into a song  (e.g. bass, drums, piano, vocals, etc.).Loops are sections of a song that you can edit to repeat (or loop . . . if you will) over and over again to elongate a song or to keep a specific section going for a specific amount of time. A good video editor can use both loops and stems make their videos flow better.How to Download, Prep, and ImportUsing the PremiumBeat song library as an example, downloading, prepping and importing song stems is really pretty simple. All you have to do is find a song (which includes the stem package) and click the “Download Comp” button. You’ll just follow the popup to include “Stems” with your purchase.Here’s a more in-depth article on how to import song stems to your favorite different NLE platforms, including the following:Adobe Premiere ProDaVinci ResolveFinal Cut ProOnce you have your stems imported, you can work with them as individual audio tracks, which can be helpful for all types of video editing needs.How to Increase Production Value Using Song StemsAfter you’ve gotten your stems downloaded and imported, the real fun begins. You can use stems in a wide variety of ways on all types of video projects. Here’s a great article that goes into many creative ways you can use stems in your edits, including the following:Interviews and Film DialogueSong RemixesTarget Audio EffectsSplicing Songs TogetherProlonging Song ElementsThey key for every method is to find unique ways to make your songs and stems work for your story. From adding a dynamic layer behind cinematic shorts, or adding some humor to your Youtube channel vlogs, the techniques you learn and master can help out on all manner of projects.How to Remove Vocals in a Song Using StemsAnother cool part of working with track stems is the added ability to remove vocals from songs. As writer Robbie Janney expounds upon in this article, there are really two different ways to remove vocals.The first way is the hard way, which is how many video editors had to work without the use of stems. It involves going into Audacity and using the EQ banding to remove the high-octave levels in the song through a painstaking process of trial-and-error.However, the second way is much easier and simply involves finding the individual vocal track (or tracks) in your song stems and removing them. And from there, you can even tinker with only removing parts of the vocals to help isolate certain phrases or to better use the song as background filler noise at times.Creative Ways You Can Use Music LoopsAnd let’s not forget working with loops as well. It very rarely works out that when you purchase or download a song for your video, that said song is perfectly the same length as your video. Moreover, the intro, outro, or chorus sections probably won’t line up just right with how you’ve laid your video out.So, what do video editors tend to do? Well, they need to chop up — and often loop — their song tracks so that they can make them sync up with their video edits. Here’s a great article breaking down just how and when to use loops for the following reasons:Loops As PunctuationLoop for TransitionsLoop for HumorLoop for EmphasisLoop for EnergyLoop for Style and BrandingThe article also goes into some tips into how to mix and work with these loops, including when to bring the levels down to allow other dialogue or action to stand out as well as when to bring levels up for titles or impact.Cover image via antb.Looking for more audio and video editing tips and tricks?

And while there has always been a dark under-web where files are illegally disseminated, the majority of the internet world has fallen into a mainstream sphere governed by the major conglomerates.For video editors, this is largely a good thing. It has finally established the rules to the game of how we can interact legally — and within the system — of working with not just music but all sorts of intellectual property. The same algorithms that protect copyrighted music also protects our unique creations and allow for some semblance of protection for artists’ rights.Specifically when working with music or sound effects in your film and video projects, it’s important to understand how to cover all your bases. From making sure you’re using legally acquired “royalty free music” to working with the highest quality file types to finding diverse options for creating mood, tone, and story . . . even to creatively editing your tracks using loops and stems, we’ll go over everything.So, without further ado, here is your complete video editor’s guide to working with music.The Different Music File TypesImage via edwardolive.Off the bat, when looking to work with music files, you have several different options. These different file types all have different pros and cons regarding quality and size, so it’s important to learn to recognize which file types might be right for you and your specific projects.In this in-depth article, Charles Yeager subdivides the music file types into three main categories:Uncompressed file formats: .WAV, .AIFFCompressed Lossless file formats: .FLAC, .ALAC (Apple Lossless)Compressed Lossy file formats: .MP3, .AAC, .WMA, .OGGThese three groups (uncompressed, compressed lossless and compressed lossy) each include the file formats that you would most often be using. Let’s dive a little more into the strengths and weaknesses of each of these groups.Uncompressed Music FilesUncompressed music files — which are often found as .WAV or .AIFF — are going to be your biggest and best options. These files are the best to work with in post due to their full audio frequency, lossless quality, and lack of compression (as the category name would imply).These are similar to your “RAW video” formats for those more familiar with working with video files than audio files. You’ll be working with the most information available, which is helpful once you begin doctoring the audio in your edit. They also require less processing when playing back when working with your files in your NLE.The size of the files can be a concern though, but really only if you’re dealing with lots of files. The average size for an uncompressed audio file is roughly between 25-40MB for a regular three-to-five minute music track. While these might be a bit large for cloud transferring and sending back and forth as email attachments, they’re still relatively easy to work with and store when compared to all the video footage you’ll be dealing with.When possible, these files will be your best options in the edit.Compressed Lossless Music FilesAfter uncompressed music files, the second group would be your compressed lossless music files. Similar to their uncompressed counterparts with their lossless quality with full frequency in playback, these compressed lossless files — notably .FLAC and .ALAC, which is Apple Lossless — are kind of the best of both worlds.At up to a third smaller than uncompressed files, compressed lossless work similar to “zip-compressed” files when being stored but are “unzipped” when being used for playback. However, while these are great file types to work with, they are the least supported file type and they often (because of their decoding needs) require more computing power.Compressed Lossy Music FilesThe final group of music file types would be the compressed lossy tracks. These are perhaps the type of music files with which you might be most familiar because they are commonly used for streaming music online.These compressed lossy music files — like .MP3 and .AAC — can be up to one-tenth the size of uncompressed files like .WAV, which obviously means they are much more practical for storing large quantities or very long files.However, just like dealing with lower-quality video files, all that compression comes with some downsides. Not only do the compressed lossy files have limited frequency range, you’ll also find troublesome audio artifacts, as well as less range to utilize in your edit or in audio manipulation.If you have to work with these files, it’s not the end of the world, but it will be limiting your edit.What Is Royalty Free Music?Image via PrinceOfLove.Real quick, before we dive into “how to use royalty free music,” maybe we should address the first question: “What is royalty free music?” From an original definition by Gilles Arbour on one of the first posts on the PremiumBeat blog, we get this explanation”In a nutshell Royalty Free Music refers to a type of music licensing that allows the purchaser to pay for the music license only once and to use the music for as long as desired.Make sense? The use is pretty simple, but the term can be kind of confusing and convoluted. Arbour goes on to define exactly what isn’t royalty-free music, which is more than you would think:Royalty Free Music is NOT free!Royalty Free Music is NOT Stock MusicRoyalty Free Music is NOT Copyright Free musicRoyalty Free Music is NOT a specific type of musicRoyalty Free Music is NOT poor quality musicRoyalty Free Music is NOT cheap musicBasically, “royalty free music” simply means “free of royalty,” and it’s different from other types of licensing like “rights managed” or “needle drop.” What you’re really getting should be called “one-stop, pre-paid, production licensing music,” which is kind of a mouthful, so we just say “royalty free.”If you’re still confused, you can read up on our FAQ page.Choosing Different Types of MusicImage panuwat phimpha.This is my favorite part of working with music on your video editing projects: the selection. Every video editor is different in how they browse and choose which tracks or sound effects they’d like to use, so I would definitely encourage you to find a methodology that makes the most sense to you.However, if you consider yourself a music connoisseur, then I would highly recommend spending hours browsing for tracks, then making a playlist that you can listen to over and over again (time permitting of course).The other trick comes with experience and knowing what you want. As you hone your editing skills, you’ll start to recognize which types of tracks go best with which types of video projects. Maybe you’ll find that corporate explainer videos work best with calming, non-distracting classical tracks. Or you’ll discover that unboxing videos do best with upbeat electronica in the background. Or that your ’80s-homage horror film needs something more cinematic and suspenseful.The best advice is to enjoy the process. Listening to music, like reviewing footage should be a fun and creative process. The choices you make here make will play a huge role in defining the story and feeling of your project, so why not enjoy it?Here are some curated playlists to dive into.Royalty Free Music to Power Your Sports VideosLevel-Up Your Gaming Videos with the Perfect Royalty-Free SoundtrackMeditative Ambient Music for Thoughtful VideosStunning Royalty Free Podcast MusicRoyalty Free Music for Unforgettable Unboxing VideosStrange ’80s Synth Music for Horror and Fantasy FilmsRoyalty Free Music for Mouthwatering Food VideosOpen Your Next Scene with These Royalty Free TracksTunes for Travelers: Royalty Free Music for Travel Videos and VlogsAerial Video ToolkitMusic and Production Assets for Unforgettable Wedding VideosIntense Trailer Music and SFX for Video EditorsAwaken Your Independent Spirit With Our Latest Music CollectionGet Immersed with Epic Music for Timelapse VideosBeautiful Music for Successful Wedding Videoslast_img read more
