      Jacinda Ardern Could Have Been Australasia's PM

      Found this interesting piece from The Guardian and it really challenged our curiosity. It’s called Jacinda Ardern Prime Minister of Australasia? If Only It Was That Simple.

      It shares some intriguing points. Here’s one of them:

      As Ardern’s oration displayed her mastery of her brief, more than one of the 2,000 people in the main hall was left wondering how Australia might fare under the prime ministership of Jacinda Ardern.

      While this may be dismissed as a fantasy in 2019, it was not always thus. In fact, when Melbourne Town Hall first opened in 1870 the ...

      The Necessity of Sustainability in Capitalism

      Paul Polman, Unilever's former CEO, caught my eye in this thought-provoking article from The Guardian. It's called Damaged Ideology: Business Must Reinvent Capitalism - Ex Uniliver Boss.

      In it, he shares some really fascinating nuggets of wisdom. Here's one of them:

       Companies that put short-term profit ahead of long-term sustainability would not survive.

We need to build a new model of ...

      Talking About Women and Money is Still a Taboo Topic

      Came across this noteworthy piece from The Guardian and thought that we would share it. It's called For Women to Talk About Money, Let Alone Demand Equal Pay, is Still Taboo.

      In it, Suzanne Moore shares with us some fascinating ideas. This one was particularly thought-provoking:

      Women’s relationship with money is still somehow considered embarrassing by society. Young women write confessionals full of masochism and the world is fascinated by these unspoken desires, which are part of our romantic ideology.

      Here's a compelling article from The Guardian. It's called Could Allowing Dogs on Trains Help Ease Sydney's Car Crisis?

      In it, Alex McKinnon explores the possibility of finally allowing pets on public transport in Sydney. Here’s an idea that we found absolutely thought-provoking:

      Surveying more than 1,250 Sydney dog owners, researchers Jennifer Kent and Corinne Mulley found 2.4m dog-related car trips were made in the city every week, exacerbating overcrowded traffic conditions and low rates of public transport use.

    5. Why Women Earn Less

      Why Women Earn Less

      Stumbled upon this noteworthy book feature from The Guardian and thought that we would share it. In it, Rachel Cook reviews Equal: A Story of Women, Men and Money by Carrie Gracie.

      It shares with us some important ideas in the book. Rachel points out: 

      Men are not necessarily going to acknowledge how hard we work themselves, or not in any concrete way, for all that our productivity may be exceedingly useful (“you ask so little”). Some of them, in fact, may be quite determined not to acknowledge it, or even to notice it at all.

      The The First Female Chief of Britain's IED Has Both the Power and Resolve to Gender Disparity in Engineering Field

      Came across this fascinating piece from The Guardian and it really piqued our interest. It’s titled Recruit Women, Urges Engineers' First Female Leader.

      In it, Naomi Climber, the new president of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) shares some interesting points. Here’s one of them:

      Today many have been transformed and employ large numbers of women. For example, jobs in medicine are now divided fairly evenly between the sexes. By contrast, engineering has remained stubbornly stuck in the past. Men still hold down 94% of jobs. That is simply not acceptable. Indeed, it is harmful. We cannot ...

      Are Digital Publishers Exploiting Their Authors?

      Digital publishing is changing the game. Here's a thought-provoking piece from The Guardian that explores the effects of this relatively new publishing method on the industry. It's called Digital-Only Imprints in the E-Book Era: Inclusive or Exploitative?

      It has some really interesting points. Here's one of them:

      Digital publishing is not about dumping books on a Kindle. From my experience, it is about bright and talented editors finding work that they love and working with an author to get a book the best it can be. With Carina UK, I have gone through all the processes one ...

    8. Climate Change Activist and Person with Asperger's Puts Haters in Place

      Climate Change Activist and Person with Asperger's Puts Haters in Place

      Thought I'd give you an update on what's happening to Asperger's hero and environmental activist, Greta Thunberg in this article. It's a report by The Guardian's Alison Rourke.

      In it, she shares how the young activist responded to comments made about her condition. Here's one of the more poignant points that she made:

      Greta Thunberg is an Inspiration for People with Autism Around the World

      Here's a beautiful article from The Guardian on environmental activist Greta Thunberg. It's called Greta Thunberg Teaches Us About Autism as Much as Climate Change.

      In it, Ian Birrell shares some interesting points on how autism plays a role in the rise of the young activist. Here's a short but insightful excerpt:

      She admitted her passion was partly down to viewing the world in stark terms. The result of her simplistic approach, fuelled by her condition, is that she has presented this issue with more clarity and competence than almost any adult activist or politician in recent ...

    11. Outdated Australian Policies Are Still Being Used to Discriminate Against Disabled Immigrants

      Outdated Australian Policies Are Still Being Used to Discriminate Against Disabled Immigrants

      Australia is still following an outdated policy on disabled immigrants. We learn about it from this interesting article from The Guardian. It's called Australia Tries to Block Disabled People from Coming Here - It's Part of Our Ugly History.

      It shares some intriguing insights still currently held by a lot of our politicians. This one's particularly thought-provoking:

      This system says that we, as Australians, can see no other role for disabled people than as cost burdens. We have no ability to contribute, economically or otherwise in this framework. We have no value, only a cost.

      Take a look ...

    13. Why Women Are More Susceptible to Impostor Syndrome

      Why Women Are More Susceptible to Impostor Syndrome

      A significantly higher number of women suffer from intense and at times debilitating self-doubt due to a phenomenon called "impostor syndrome". If you've ever had the feeling that you're not really good at all and you've just somehow fooled everyone to think you are, then you might be suffering from impostor syndrome.

      But as Yomi Adegoke writes for The Guardian, it's not your fault. Instead:

      It is crucial to remember that women are not born feeling less-than. But if you are continually treated as though you are, you eventually internalise it.
