Pinterest states that it will not be storing any credit card information itself to protect people’s personal information. 60. asthma, Daniel Mote Jr. the former University of Maryland College Park president who co-chaired the 18-month-long study with former Lockheed Martin CEO Norman Augustine "It was very hard to find anyone who said that there is a workforce shortage except in a few areas such as cybersecurity and intelligence; the real issue is not numbers it is how to maintain the quality of the workforce" The report notes however that "the historical record of forecasting the number of scientists and engineers needed to work in national security has been abysmal at best" so problems could appear suddenly The report suggests that DOD focus on meeting its own special workforce needs rather than trying to improve the overall quality of STEM education in the United States "DOD needs to concentrate on solving its own problem not the country’s problem" Mote says DOD now employs just about 2% of the total US STEM workforce the report notes and is "a small and diminishing part of the nation’s overall science and engineering enterprise One consequence is that DOD cannot significantly impact the nation’s overall STEM workforce-and therefore with a few exceptions DOD should focus its limited resources on fulfilling its own special requirements for STEM talent" Some practical steps that the Pentagon can take to recruit and retain top talent include adjusting compensation levels and streamlining hiring and security clearance practices in order to make DOD "fully competitive" with more nimble industry and academic employers And it could also "ring fence" employees and positions that it considers particularly important protecting them from budget cuts layoffs and hiring freezes A more ambitious recommendation is for the Pentagon to sponsor "unconventional" research and engineering projects that offer "exciting challenging and highly attractive opportunities" to potential workers The problem Mote says is that as the Pentagon buys fewer large weapons systems DOD workers have fewer opportunities to hone their technical and leadership skills solving big complicated problems But a series of smaller challenging projects—perhaps modeled after prize competitions for developing "disruptive" technologies or Lockheed Martin’s famed "Skunk Works" facility that pioneered futuristic spy planes and supersonic aircraft—could help build esprit de corps he says "We felt very strongly about the unconventional programs idea" Mote says "It’s been shown over and over again that the idea of working on a challenging project is a very attractive recruiting tool" Mote said the panel spent "a lot of time" discussing its recommendation that DOD try to hire more non-US citizens for STEM jobs Currently the Pentagon limits most STEM positions to US citizens in large part as a result of security clearance requirements But that restriction means DOD can’t directly tap a rising tide of foreign talent including those who could like to become US citizens To break the logjam the panel says DOD should "reexamine the need for security clearances in selected positions in order to permit non-US citizens to enter the STEM talent pool … under tailored circumstances" The US Department of Energy it notes already has programs that give foreign scientists jobs and clearances if they commit to obtaining US citizenship; DOD could start with similar efforts The panel also called for expanding the number of visas available for highly skilled technical workers "to provide the nation and the DOD with a substantially larger pool of extraordinary talent in areas of need" Mote concedes that the foreign hiring recommendation may be difficult to implement "There is a feeling that this is a very steep hill to climb" he says A host of laws and regulations would need to be changed he says steps that are "out of the hands of DOD" Pentagon officials are still reviewing the report a Pentagon spokesperson wrote to ScienceInsider in an e-mail And Mote says it is unclear "whether the department as a whole will want to take this on in a big way" as it struggles with impending budget cuts and other issues "These are some rather big changes we are talking about" he says "But it’s clear that DOD needs to be more assertive and prepared to compete for its STEM workforce" Written by Anuradha Varma | New Delhi | Updated: March 8 2017 3:39 pm Interestingly Surpanakha who is seen to walk on the dark side here is revered as a feminist icon in Sri Lanka It’s high

the Censor Board needn’t look far The feisty women in Lipstick Under My Burkha who are not afraid to express their desire are in great company particularly when it comes to our women in mythology In Rabindranath Tagore’s Chitrangada a Manipuri warrior princess falls in love with Arjuna and secures his love after faking feminine graces In the end however Mahabharata’s invincible warrior embraces her as an equal partner There are other mythological references to spunky women too like Rati the goddess of love lust and passion who is also Kamadeva’s consort Then there was Radha whose name is synonymous with Lord Krishna their relationship defying cultural norms In today’s times these women’s stories would perhaps not pass the censor board’s scissors especially Surpanakha whose nose being

about Surpanakha Ravana’s sister who has been much maligned for being sexually upfront with the princes of Ayodhya In the book Lanka’s Princess Kavita Kane writes about her tempestuous affair with Vidyujiva who she marries later but not before being caught in the act by her brothers who are against their match When she feels the force of her attraction for the princes she is reminded of her grandmother’s words “Is that not what her Nani had taught her: that there was no shame in desiring a man that a self-assured woman be comfortable with her flowing urges and desires” Her story unravels as a tragedy which Kane believes should not be mistaken as the story of a “fallen woman” but “a repentant woman who inflicted blood and gore and war to her country for her personal revenge” She remarks “To desire is sin to want is avaricious and to translate this into action is an act to be punished Her grandmother helps free her from the shackles of such thoughts but she becomes a victim of her own desires She is bold she is upfront a free-thinking woman in other matters but it is when it comes to her vocalising her desires she is duly punished” ALSO READ |Two Minute Theatre Festival: Changing stereotypes in two minutes Kane who is also the author of Menaka’s Choice says “I consciously took up the question of sexual liberation through two hugely different women characters in mythology Women and sexuality are not just running themes but characters personified by Menaka (who seduced the sage Vishwamitra) an apsara and Surpanakha the reviled vamp of the Ramayana Both are bold and sexually aggressive women thus immediately hued more black than white In a society where we have been taught in overt and subtle ways that women’s bodies are seductive dangerous and embarrassing these two women are perceived as promiscuous Menaka is seen as more kindly more as a symbol of female sexual power but Surpanakha is actually a symbol of this very victimhood She is a bold sexually confident woman who remained vastly misunderstood for her actions” On the censor board refusing to certify Lipstick Under My Burkha she remarks “There unfortunately is still a tremendous amount of taboo around female sexual desire And it is shocking how pervasive this taboo has become” She adds “There are so many other sexually liberated women in our mythology Though Draupadi seems to be a more visible figure Devyani and Satyavati both queens in the Mahabharata clawed their way to get their man Then there is Tara who desired Chandra the Moon god and refused to go back to her husband Rishi Brihaspati and had a child from her lover Shakuntala falls in love with a stranger a king and does not hesitate to enjoy the man she loves Mohini the only female avatar of Vishnu is portrayed as a femme fatale besotting anyone who looks at her leading them to their doom or death but thereby saving the world And then there are Renuka and Ahilya who were punished for their sexual transgressions or even thinking about it But through them another facet of how sexuality clashed with patriarchy is revealed” Interestingly it’s all about perception and Surpanakha who is seen to walk on the dark side here is revered as a feminist icon in Sri Lanka as discovered by UK-born author Patrick Jered who spent time in the country while researching his book Finding the Demon’s Fiddle: On the Trail of the Ravanhatta He says “I was surprised to discover that Surpanakha was often viewed in Sri Lanka as a positive role model who had been literally ‘demonised’ in the Ramayana because she was an assertive independent woman” ALSO READ |International Women’s Day: Get your cup of inspiration with these 10 quotes by powerful women He relates his encounter with a female Shaman named Ganga in Colombo “She believed herself to be the reincarnation of Surpanakha and was the centre of what appeared to be a growing cult of people Her followers were men as well as women She was a very strong character and was consulted for advice by prominent people in Sri Lankan society I met some of them I asked Ganga about Surpanahka (herself) in the Ramayana and she was very dismissive about the regressive role of women in the epic She believed that Surpanakha had as much right to be sexually assertive as any man did” He expresses “For me in the Ramayana Surpanakha challenged the illusion that women have to be subservient to men When women speak out become visible and take control of situations that illusion of male power is challenged The attempt to silence Lipstick Under My Burkha a film made by a female filmmaker about strong women obviously challenges the illusion The director Alankrita Shrivastava should be congratulated not silenced” It’s high time we reclaimed our legacy of
