Charlize Theron & Sean Penn See Stars For Haiti -- $6 Million Worth

AOC Smart Sensuality favorite powerhouse woman Charlize Theron joined good friend and new lover(???) Sean Penn at his Help Haiti Home event last night in Beverly Hills. Press reports are that the duo rivaled a rare appearance of couple Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin in PDAs.

Bette Midler said of Penn and the event, “Everybody’s a fan. But his intelligence, sense of humor and sense of idealism in the face of so many roadblocks and constraints – the fact he keeps going – is really inspirational to a lot of people. Sometimes you get exhausted and tired, he doesn’t.”

People reports that the event, sponsored by Georgio Armani and hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper, raised $6 million in donations.

To better understand why Charlize Theron is a Smart Sensuality woman — smart, sexy and with great heart — read our December 2013 feature Just Why Does the Rape Of Women & Children Worldwide Continue? Charlize has some choice words.

Smart Sensuality women also have a confounding relationship with status and money. We like both but don’t buy the mantra that a woman is a sum of her possessions. Charlize Theron made that very clear in her 2010 J’Adore L’Or commercial — one of my all-time favorites. ~ Anne

ForbesWoman Calls 2014 A Breakout Year For Women Entrepreneurs | Maria Shriver Reports On Poor Women

via Upworthy: Things that matter. Pass ‘em on.

Anne is reading …

New Fed Chairman Janet Yellen followed Sheryl Sandberg’s advice long before she wrote it, says TIME, when she married Nobel prize winning economist George Akerlof. Yellen gives her husband tremendous credit for her success.

“Academia is very flexible, but I had a spouse who was very committed to being a completely full partner in our marriage,” Yellen tells Rana  Foroohar. This includes full-on fathering. “I think if you counted up how many hours each one of us logged in, he certainly gets more than 50%,” she says.

Even friends comment that they have a particularly equal relationship with Akerlof providing psychological support in the daily political storms of DC and taking over household duties when Yellen went at the Fed.

Read on Everything You Need to Know About Mr. Janet Yellen.

A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink

American families have never been more fragile. With more than one in three Americans living in poverty or on the edge of it, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink reveals this national crisis through its particular impact on women.

At a time when women now represent half of the U.S. workforce and “a whopping two-thirds of the primary or co-breadwinners in American families,” 42 million women, and the 28 million children who depend on them, are living “one single incidenta doctor’s bill, a late paycheck, or a broken-down caraway from economic ruin. “

Nearly two-thirds of minimum-wage workers are women and the vast majority work with no paid sick days. The fact that women earn more than half of the college and advanced degrees in America, make the majority of consumer spending decisions, and are about 54% of the nation’s voters hasn’t resulted in trickle down policies that benefit American women. Females are both increasingly powerful and powerless in the US.

The Shriver Report is an initiative of A Woman’s Nation™, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Maria Shriver to raise awareness, ignite conversations, and inspire impact around the defining issues and fundamental challenges facing modern women. The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink is the third report in the series of Shriver reports and was produced in partnership with the Center for American Progress, an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. CAP is headed by Neera Tanden and based in Washington, D.C.  www.ShriverReport.org.

Zambia's First Lady Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata Stuns By Speaking On Behalf Of Gays | God Loves Uganda Documentary

RedTracker

Zambia President Michael Sata with First Lady Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata in JapanAnne is reading …

It’s been several years since AOC touched down in Zambia, but we simply had to address an event so unexpected that LGBT activists in Africa are calling it “a miracle”. All Africa wrote Zambia: Miracles Do Happen In Zambia.

The ‘miracle’ in question was a call from Zambia’s First Lady, Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata around the topic of HIV and gay sex.

Speaking at a UNAIDS hosted reception, she said that the “silence around issues of Men who have Sex with Men should be stopped and no one should be discriminated against on the basis of their sexual orientation. Rather, we should address reproductive health issues around this issue.”

Not stopping there, Dr Kaseba-Sata, assured people working in the sexual and reproductive health sector that both she and her husband President Michael Sata support their efforts.

Her statements come as Zambia’s tabloids are ‘outing’ gay and bisexual men.

LGBTI activist Paul Kasonkomona is currently on trial for speaking on TV about the rights of gay people in the battle against HIV while two men Philip Mubiana and James Mwape are facing charges of sodomy. - See more at: http://www.gaystarnews.com/article/miracles-happen-zambias-first-lady-calls-end-gay-hate071113#sthash.eyK6k3Br.dpuf

President Michael Sata defeated in 2011 then president Banda, whose government threatened to jail newspaper editor Chansa Kabwela for five years because she sent (not published) photos of a woman dying in childbirth during a hospital strike to Zambia’s health minister. President Banda called Kabwela’s actions pornographic.

Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata

South Africa First Lady Bongi Ngema-Zuma (right) with Zambia First Lady Dr Christine Kaseba-SataZambia’s First Lady Dr Christine Kaseba-Sata is one of Zambia’s most recognized specialists in obstetrics and gynaecology. She has practiced as a physician at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka for more than 25 years, and has served as a lecturer at the University of Zambia School of Medicine for over 15 years.

Dr Kaseba-Sata currently serves as a World Health Organization Goodwill Ambassador against Gender-based Violence and also serves as chairperson of the Forum of African First Ladies against cervical and breast cancer.

In 2010 PEW Research Center released one of the largest surveys on attitudes to religion and morality in Africa, comprised of 25,000 people in 19 countries. Pew wrote that Africa is probably the world’s most religious continent with about 80% of people believing in Good in most countries.

Disapproval of homosexuality in three countries — Zambia, Kenya and Cameron — was 98%.

A separate research report The Culture Wars Come to Zambia Intercepting the International Human Rights Agenda, concludes that America’s Christian fundamentalists who are “militant biblical literalists” have dominated the values of Christianity across the developing world and in Zambia specifically.

Male Canary Brains Bathed In Testosterone Hit The Seductive High Notes

Seducing a female canary isn’t easy. They are picky, frankly, looking for males particularly adept at singing “sexy syllables” that may indicate their overall genetic robustness. Researchers have previously determined that unlike most vocal notes produced by a male canary, the sexy trills require “extraordinarily fast and coordinated alternation between the left and right sides of the syrinx (the avian vocal organ) more than 16 times a second.

For the male canary capable of executing this performance — even on tape — caged female canaries assume postures inviting copulation.

Now researchers at John Hopkins University have bathed the entire brain of male canaries with testosterone to see if male canaries sing better songs capable of seducing females.  It’s known that the medial preoptic nucleus part of a canary brain — or POM — controls sexual motivation. POM operates in humans as well.

In this recent study, researchers created three groups of male canaries: 1) POM only testosterone application; 2) entire brain testosterone application; and 3) no testosterone given. The results confirmed that while male canaries receiving the POM only applications of testosterone sang more frequently than the control, they couldn’t hit the seductive trills required to inspire the female canary to copulate. Only males receiving the entire brain bath of testosterone could pull off the five-star performance.

“The quality of the song that is required to successfully attract a mate and then the process of attending to the female, or singing to her, when she is there … requires the coordination of multiple brain regions,” says graduate student Beau Alward, the lead investigator.

Promising insights may also come for seduction among humans, given the reality that like humans, the canary brain is able to change its neural pathways and synapses in response to changes in behavior, the seasonal environment, and injury.  “The hormones in these birds are identical to those in humans and they can regulate brain changes in a similar manner,” said Gregory F. Ball, vice dean for science and research infrastructure and professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences. via

Religion's Evolution Divide Deepens Between Republicans & Democrats | Phil Robertson Promotes Marrying Girls Young

RedTracker

Anne is reading …

PEW Research revisits the topic of Americans’ beliefs in evolution, finding a significant drop in the number of Republicans who believe in the scientific theory of evolution. About two-third of Democrats (67%) and Independents (65%) embrace the belief that humans have evolved over time, compare to only 43% of Republicans. In fact, Republican belief in evolution has plummeted from 54% since 2009.

There is also a significant gender gap with 65% of men but only 55% of women believing in evolution. Likewise, there exists an age gap with 68% of 18-29 year olds believing in evolution, compared to 49% age 65 and older. Lastly, education is a factor with 72% of college grads embracing evolution, compared to 51% of high school grads or less.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All About Adam

The Economist weighed in on America’s evolutionary debate in late November 2013, writing that “the literalist faith is in crisis.” Citing statistics that fully half of evangelical youngsters lose their faith after hitting age 18 and especially if they enter a public university.

The Barna Group, an evangelical research firm has studied the young in large numbers, confirming yet again that millenials are “unimpressed by organised anything, let along organised religion.” The young oppose the total demonization of secular culture by their elders. Many are not anti-gay and a quarter of young told Barna Group that their churches were anti-science.

Writing for The Economist, Lexington points out the evangelical Christianity is not only fending off criticisms from its young but is also shaken by new discoveries that are part of genetic science. As science increasingly embraces the concept of several thousand “first humans” while negating the possibility that our genetic diversity can be traced back to the existence of an original man and woman — Adam and Eve, in the case of evangelicals — conservative theologians are questioning a historical Adam.

Without a historical Adam, says Michael Cromartie, an evangelical expert at the Ethics and Public Policy Centre, it follows then that “there would be no reason for Jesus to come to Earth to redeem man’s Fall.”

A flurry of academic papers on Adam and a proliferation of books are either out or in development.

Keira Knightley On Feminism For Harper's Bazaar UK Feb 2014 By Alexi Lubomirski

Keira Knightley covers Harper’s Bazaar UK’s February issue, wearing looks from Chanel’s spring-summer 2014 collection. Keira, who is lensed by Alexi Lubomirski, chats up a number of topics with Bazaar’s Sophie Elmhirst. At the top of the list: feminism.

I think it’s great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, ‘Oh, f***ing shut up,’” says Keira.  ”Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it’s great that we’re coming out of that.
