Discussions Discussion Deciding How and When to Become a Parent
Megan McCausland, Feb. 6, 2012

The Duggers, the Arkansas family that stars in 19 Kids and Counting, recently miscarried their 20th child. They came under fire, more than usual, when they took photos of the 4oz, 6cm baby prior to a memorial service. It begs the question, when does one become a parent? At birth? At conception? Somewhere in between? When is it appropriate to take photos and have memorial services? Only after a live birth or a full term still birth? http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2011/12/photo-of-duggars-stillborn-baby-released/

Pablo Neruda is one of my preferred poets. No poet has more passionately and thoroughly spoken for his people than Neruda. “Canto General,” his 15-part book comprising over 200 poems tracing the history of Latin America practically unified a country.

Breaking gender barriers in Carnatic music

I found an interesting article that takes a look at the women musicians who contributed to the male dominated world of Carnatic Music.

In fact, there have been many women musicians of the past like Bangalore Tayi, Madras Lalithangi, Salem Meenakshi, Vainikas Dhanammal, Madurai Shanmugavadivu, violinist Madurai Akkammal, flautist Valadi Rukmini Papa, gottuvadyam Mannargudi Savithri Ammal, mridangist Tanjore Kamakshi Bai, magasvaram M S Ponnuthai and composers Tallapakka Thimmakka who have contributed greatly to the field of Carnatic music.

This recording of Bangalore Tayi goes back to the 1930’s

    Dan: To get a perspective we may look at the Sangi
    ta Kalanidhi Awards. These are kind of Nobel prizes annually awarded for lifetime achievements and contribution to Carnatic Muisc to one musician/dancer by the premier Music Academy based out at Chennai (formerly Madras). The awards are being conferred since 1929.

    The first female recipient was M S Subbulakshmi in 1968. Within the next ten years, four ladies - D K Pattammal (1970), T Balsaraswathy (1073), T Brinda (1976) and M L Vasanthakumari (1977) were conferred the title. Thereafter it was conferred on R Vedavalli in 2000. The latest recipients are the singer duo Bombay Sisters - Saroja and Lalitha in 2010.

    in my personal opinion a few deserving artistes who seem to have missed out is the sisters Radha & Jayalakhsmi and the vocalist Mani Krishnaswamy. Since these are lifetime awards it is still possible that these ladies and others will also be conferred with this unofficial supreme recognition.

    Corrections to the post above^. Mani Krishnaswamy received the Sangita Kalanidhi title in 1993. Also the Sikkil Sisters - Neela and Kunjumani, who play the flute - were conferred the title in 2002.

Gender-bending’ chemical found in canned foods increases risk of heart disease and diabetes

Just five days of eating canned soup dramatically increases levels of hormone-mimicking bisphenol A. Scientists blame this increase on manufacturers using BPA in the lining of soup tins to prevent them from rusting.

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/11/23/canned-foods-contain-gender-bending-chemicals_n_1109550.html

BPA is an organic compound that can mimic the body’s own hormones and previous research has warned it can increase the risk of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes and obesity.

Good background article about food and gender and their interactions. Its interesting that this stuff involves everyday life but we take it for granted. For me its interesting food for thought- pun intended!

Across many cultures and epochs, people have constituted, expressed, and bridged gender differences through foodways—the beliefs and behaviors surrounding the production, distribution, and consumption of food. Through the division of labor, alimentary exchanges, access to food, and the meanings surrounding eating, men and women have enacted their identity, roles, and power.

What gender is your hot sauce?

Is the race for manufacturers to create his and her food brands moving towards the absurd? Seems like it. In the battle to stand out by identifying their food and beverages as male or female, an Ontario based company claims to have created the “manliest condiment ever.” Man Sauce. No lie.

    Great post Kim! This is a very interesting article. It is curious to see what marketing does to reinforce gender roles that are within the society- even roles that might be archaic in where men and women are today.
