Finally, the marathon election process is over. What we aspire for are credible competing options which are subject to governance ability, accountability and performance evaluation every five years. I believe, it is time to jettison the legacies that dilute this imperative – the Nation deserves every ounce of political commitment that drives the betterment of its citizens. The pride that we so fiercely (and so rightfully) hold for our country must not be singular but plural to cover the complete cultural diversity. The raucous and vacuous rhetoric of the past year that had so chillingly competed with reason must be shed to allow sanity to return. On a lighter note, let Yuvraj Singh & Co provide the pyrotechnics on TV and not the likes of the Arnabs.

Boko Haram abduction an attack on self-empowerment and cultural diversity. Says FECCA. 29 April 2014 The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) is deeply concerned and outraged by the abduction of more than 200 girls from a school in Northern Nigeria and the alarming reports that have emerged around the incident. FECCA views the act, carried out by Boko Haram (translated as “Western education is sinful/forbidden”), as a direct attack on the right of all girls, of all cultural and religious backgrounds, to have access to education and the opportunity to pursue self-empowerment. FECCA strongly opposes any form of discrimination and violence against girls and women and is extremely concerned that the abducted girls could potentially be subjected to forced marriages, sexual slavery and forced conversion to Islam. FECCA Women’s Chair, Ms Pallavi Sinha said, “Like Australia, Nigeria regards itself as a multicultural society. However, as demonstrated by this most recent incid . ...

It's nice to know that NYC has prepared me for the cultural diversity of my new neighborhood which is predominantly Muslim, Chinese and Thai. I took the dogs out for a second short walk around the block this morning and started talking to a Muslim woman who was out with her daughter. Funniest part of the conversation we had was when she learned I lived right around the corner and said, "You are not afraid of living in this neighborhood?" I told her I had lived in NYC for 18 years and was quite used to a culturally diverse environment. Turns out she home schools her daughter and is looking to get an native English speaker to speak with her daughter. In exchange, this woman who just so happened to be a former teacher of both Thai and English at a large Uni in Chiang Mai, will teach me conversational Thai. It pays to smile and say hello to your neighbors!

May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month: Celebrating Cultural Diversity in the Montessori Classroom - Heritage Survey Activity The Montessori curriculum strives to create a connection between home and school environment. In an effort to make this connection, some Montessori teachers have found that creating a cultural heritage survey helps not only the children to make this connection, but also involves the parents with what is occurring in the Montessori classroom. By explaining that the Montessori curriculum looks at both the Common Needs of People as well as the differences of others, it sends the message that it is okay to be different, along with the need to respect the differences of others. Parents can assist their children in filling in the survey.
"There are an estimated 370 million indigenous people in the world, living across 90 countries. They make up less than 6% of the world's population, but speak an overwhelming majority of the world's estimated 7,000 languages, occupy 20% of the earth's territory and represent 5,000 different cultures. They account for most of the world's cultural diversity, despite being a numerical minority. Indigenous cultures face dual threats of discrimination and commodification, arising from the perception that they are inferior to non-indigenous communities and their culture is a hindrance to development. Indigenous people account for 15% of the world's poorest people. They also face huge disparities in access to and quality of education and healthcare, as well as employment and income." From The Guardian, Caught in the crossfire: indigenous people in conflict zones.

Teaching children mother tongue is a timely and noble idea.It's one way of appreciating cultural diversity, upholding our roots and mantaining the native languages in order to preserve our identity. The fact that colonisation, modernity, intermarriages and formal education have made many Kenyans forget their native languages. The fact that intermarriages have increased, leading to the emergence of sizable bilingual crop of Kenyans, doesnt not mean that we should not teach children local languages.For instance European nation uses Deutsch as its language of instruction in its universities and othe institutions of higher learning.

Journalism culture is described as a "shared occupational ideology among newsworkers". The term journalism culture spans the cultural diversity of journalistic values, practices and media products or similar media artifacts. Research into the concept of journalism culture sometimes suggests an all-encompassing consensus among journalists "toward a common understanding and cultural identity of journalism." There is scientific debate about the notion of a shared, world-wide journalism culture, whether such a common construct exists and can be found empirically. Several communication science studies were conducted for finding a hypothetic common Western journalism culture, a common European journalism culture, or even a common global journalism ideology. (cf. historical overview) Research into journalism cultures is especially helpful in analyzing assumed influences of globalization, indicated by world-spanning major media corporations, on individual media cultures and its worldwide standard-sett ...

Kultour cites UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity in the face of Section 18C Repeal Source: Kultour Kultour urges the Australian Government to show leadership and courage on the issue of racism to ensure that there is no opportunity to support tolerance for racial discrimination or vilification in this country. To this end Kultour supports the Federation of Ethic Communities’ Councils of Australia’s (FECCA) and their submission responding to the proposed amendments to the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (RDA). Kultour agrees with the concerns raised by FECCA and their position to strongly oppose the exposure draft, Freedom of Speech (Repeal of S.18C) Bill 2014. FECCA urges the Government to withdraw it, with a view to maintaining racial vilification provisions in the RDA as a minimum standard, as does Kultour. “We believe in the values of social inclusion, cultural and creative diversity, engagement, education, participation and exemplar practice and support the principles of the UNESC ...

Kevin Walters, 21, staged an emotional though unsuccessful, one-man, chained-to-the-door protest in March to prevent the closing of a commercial rest stop along the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway near Des Plaines, Ill. Ultimately, the “Des Plaines Oasis,” housing shops and fast-food restaurants along with a gas station, will be demolished as part of a highway-widening project. Walters told WBBM Radio that his poignant attachment to the Oasis was because his parents had told him it was where he was conceived as they returned home from a 1992 Phil Collins concert.

Let’s wish a happy 69th birthday to former All-Star catcher Manny Sanguillen, a native of Panama and a longtime standout with the Pittsburgh Pirates. While we do not feature Sanguillen’s career in our education modules, it is important to note his close connection to Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente, who is discussed in our Civil Rights and Cultural Diversity modules. Sanguillen and Clemente, who played together with the Pirates from 1967 to 1972, were the best of friends. When Clemente perished in a New Year’s Eve 1972 plane crash, the communities of Pittsburgh and his native Puerto Rico were thrown into anguish. Not satisfied to merely mourn the loss of his friend, Sanguillen spent three days deep sea diving off the San Juan coast, hoping to retrieve Clemente’s remains. Not only were the waters of the Atlantic Ocean ice cold, but they were dark and shark-infested. Yet, Sanguillen put his life at risk as part of an effort to ensure that Clemente’s body could be given a proper funeral. Unfortunate ...

International Mother Language Day has been celebrated every year since February 2000 to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. This year the theme of the International Mother Language Day is “Mother tongue instruction and inclusive education”. UNESCO highlights the importance of mother tongue as part of the right to education and encourages its member states to promote instruction and education in the mother tongue.
NIGERIA: LEARN THIS LESSON AND SURVIVE Nigeria could soon break up. As things stand today, if anybody thinks that Nigeria is not about to break up, he is deceiving himself. I don’t mean secession by this or that nationality. I mean actual dispersal of Nigeria’s many nationalities. Anybody who takes time to observe all the quiet goings-on in the political life of our country now can easily see it. It is self-evident; it is not rocket science. But I believe that Nigeria can be saved – that Nigeria can survive, and go on from there to prosper in the world. The country called India offers us a very useful lesson. If we learn that lesson and use it, we can save our country. First, here is the background. India was, like Nigeria, created by the British. It was the largest British protectorate in Asia – in the same way that Nigeria was the largest British protectorate in Africa. Both Nigeria and India contain very many nationalities (otherwise known as “linguistic nations” in India) – Nigeria cont ...

'Cultural Diversity' is the first word that we say when someone ask us of INDIA. Living in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, do we know the cultural Diversity in MP? Accoarding to me The cultural diversity seen in MP is hard to find anywhere else. For Those who believe that They belong to Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh must visit 'Tribal Museum Bhopal'. The Tribal Museum & State Museum both are situated on the picturesque Shyamla Hills, Bhopal. Its very different from any other museums. If I have to define this Museum in 3 Words I will say - Beautiful, Great Architecture and worth visiting. For those who love Interior Designing, nothing can be best than to visit this Museum. We visit DB City many times with our friends then why not this museum?
In my Cultural Diversity class today in re : Black History Month posted following abbreviated history on our discussion on Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Boycott. I want to respond to your post with just a bit of relevant history. I hope from your history classes that the class has heard of the legal doctrine known as "separate but equal." This is the prescription behind the kinds of laws and regulations in the south that created the "Jim Crow" customs such as the unequal treatment on the buses in Montgomery or the water fountains marked "colored". You may not know of a lawsuit titled Plesy versus Ferguson that was decided by the courts in 1896 in Louisiana. That was one of the first lawsuits to challenge these kinds of practices in separate accommodations in transportation. At the time of that lawsuit the plaintiffs lost the case and the courts decided as I said above, a doctrine of separate but equal, meaning that as long as the accommodations were considered equal in public transportation, they could be ...

I'm asking for trouble, but hear me out anyway. I've seen a lot of my southern friends complain this week about the way the public is treating Paula Deen over a litany of racist statements she's made that have finally come back to bite her. Let's suppose The South decided, "You know what? We're tired of being thought of as The Racist South. From here on out, we're going to be even more supportive of Cultural Diversity than the *** Yankees are. We're going to banish hurtful symbols and language from our society. We will not allow someone like Paula Deen to yearn for a dream 'Plantation Wedding' and pass it off as Southern Nostalgia. We will not allow musical artists to brandish The Confederate Flag and pass it off as Southern Heritage." Do you think that would go a long way? Do you think it'd make a difference? I do.
Each year, the AFS Committee on Cultural Diversity, Chicana/Chicano Section, and Folklore Latino, Latinoamericano, y Caribeño Section join with the AFS Executive Board to give this prize of $200, which recognizes excellence in integrating scholarship and engagement with the people and communities one studies, or in teaching and encouraging scholars and practitioners to work in their own cultures or communities. Américo Paredes (1915-1999), a leading scholar in folklore and Greater Mexico studies, worked relentlessly throughout his life, in the words of Olga Najera-Ramirez, "to better understand, represent, and respect the rights, lives, and culture of US Latinas and Latinos." Paredes contributed significantly to the formation of various intellectual trends and in particular to the scholarship on "native" folklorists and anthropologists; indeed, he trained several generations of "natives." Don Américo taught at the University of Texas from 1957 until his retirement in 1984. The Paredes Prize recognizes ...
Today is World Day for Cultural Diversity and Dialogue Development. I bet you didn't know that! I loved this poem on Wendy's blog, check it out. Child of the Americas I am a child of the Americas, a light-skinned mestiza of the Caribbean, a child of many diaspora, born into this continent at a crossroads. I am a U.S. Puerto Rican Jew, a product of the ghettos of New York I have never known. An immigrant and the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants. I speak English with passion: it's the tongue of my consciousness, a flashing knife blade of cristal, my tool, my craft. I am Caribeña, island grown. Spanish is my flesh, Ripples from my tongue, lodges in my hips: the language of garlic and mangoes, the singing of poetry, the flying gestures of my hands. I am of Latinoamerica, rooted in the history of my continent: I speak from that body. I am not African. Africa is in me, but I cannot return. I am not taína. Taíno is in me, but there is no way back. I am not European. Europe lives in me, but I have no h ...
