According to the statistics from a research published in the journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, risk of domestic abuse rose 26% when England’s team won, and even hiked upto 38% when they lost. A very powerful campaign by Tender (a non-profit against domestic abuse), British charity for using theatre and the arts to end domestic violence. “Though research on the rise of domestic violence during the World Cup is relatively new and for lack of a better word, sparse, the trend is alarming and impossible to ignore.  The weather is getting warmer, more drinks will be consumed, emotions will be heightened, and none of this excuses violence. We ask that individuals and organisations to stand together this World Cup season and say ‘No excuses’.” – Tender You can share it with the hashtag #standupworldcup to show your support to this campaign.

And though the blame is usually directed at women for not making these choices, or corporations for not creating equal opportunities for both genders, the fault truly lies in their upbringing. Verizon, in collaboration with Makers (a portal for women stories), has launched an insightful ad that showcases how parents unintentionally become overprotective and discourage their young girls to pursue science related subjects. 66% of 4th grade girls say they like science & math. But only 18% of college engineering majors are females. It’s a call to all parents to inspire the minds of their little girls to feed their intellect – #InspireHerMind.

She designed her resume/portfolio as a passport and “lost” it at her favourite agencies in New York. The first reaction that anyone would have when they see a ‘lost’ passport is they’ll try to find out who it belongs to; and that’s a great insight used by Miruna to get noticed. The main page became her resume and the visas section was transformed to showcase her portfolio. Whoever found her passport had to return it at the given address: http://passfolio.mirunamacri.com/ [Source: CGM]
