ARE WOMEN IMPROVING THEIR ASITUATION?????


Women see little improvement in world of work
The International Labour Organization (ILO) said the difference in the employment rate between men and women had decreased by 0.6% since 1995.
In countries where women access work more easily, the quality of their jobs "remains a matter of concern". The findings come as events take place to mark International Women's Day.
 ILO chief Guy Ryder said it showed "the enormous challenges women continue to face in finding and keeping decent jobs". "Throughout their working lives, women continue to face significant obstacles in gaining access to decent jobs," the UN agency said. "Only marginal improvements have been achieved since... 1995."
The report looked at data from 178 countries and found that rate of women's participation in the workforce was 25.5% lower than men's participation in 2015 - a gap only 0.6% smaller than 20 years earlier. In many regions of the world, women were more likely to stay unemployed - 6.2% of women are jobless across the world compared to 5.5% of men - and often had to accept lower quality jobs.
Russia once again topped the ranking of countries with the highest percentage of women in senior business roles, followed by the Philippines and Lithuania, the report said. Japan, where only 7% of senior leadership roles are held by women, remained at the bottom of the list.



** DIA DE LA MUJER TRABAJADORA.

La Organización Internacional de Trabajo dijo que la diferencia en la tarifa de empleo entre hombres y  mujeres se había disminuido.
Las conclusiones vienen como los acontecimientos qué  ocurren para marcar el Día de la Mujer Internacional.
El jefe de Organización Internacional de Trabajo Guy Ryder dijo: " los  enormes desafíos de las  mujeres siguen enfrentarse al  encuentro y el cuidado de empleos decentes,  las mujeres siguen afrontando obstáculos significativos en acceder  a empleos decentes".
En muchas regiones del mundo,   el 6.2 % de mujeres son desempleadas frente al  5.5 % de hombres,  y a menudo se ven obligadas   aceptar empleos de calidad inferiores.
 Rusia una vez más encabeza  la clasificación de países con el porcentaje más alto de mujeres en papeles mayores de negocio, seguido de Filipinas y Lituania, y Japón, donde sólo el 7 % de papeles de  mejor liderazgo es sostenido por mujeres.

ARE SOCIAL NETWORKS CREATING A MORE SOLITARY LIFE



ARE SOCIAL NETWORKS CREATING A MORE SOLITARY LIFE THAN BEFORE

A recent study of loneliness in Spain concluded that one in five Spaniards live alone, and yet, they are not the group that feels loneliness: "A 27.5% of Spaniards living alone say they do not feel any solitude at all, while 52.6% of those living with loneliness say he felt at some point.” Asked about the feelings attributed to the concept of loneliness, 28% identified with the lack of communication, isolation and lack of company. "

The use of networks by people who are well integrated socially and maintain strong relationships with their loved ones serve to maintain or increase those ties, and even to reduce possible effects of depression. In contrast, the second points to the social use of the internet, especially when communicating with strangers, social resources can move people in the real world and emphasize its depressed state. This group of researchers conducted a massive survey of digital users all the features to confirm the effects of both scenarios.

Their results showed that personal characteristics are what affect the relationship between the network and the depressive feeling. Its use as a complement to the social life in the real world would not be harmful, just the opposite; the problem arises when looking at the networks substitute the real company.  (by Marina – Adm 3)

The secretary of Ecology, Ségolène Royal, says that there is no fraud but the system will adjust " of leaked " 

The French secretary of Ecology, Ségolène Royal has made it clear today that the manufacturer Renault has promised to contact with the owners of more than 15.000 of his cars them the engines check and to fit after the verification of which high places issue levels of pollutant emission.  The advert of the secretary takes place one day after Renault was indicating that in a few weeks he will present a plan to reduce the emission of his vehicles, so much the future models as others that already are in traffic. These measures are a reaction to the revelations of last week on two models of Renault - the Captur and the Espace-, that have been submitted to a few technical tests organized to instances of the French Government, with the aim to check the level of pollutant emission after the scandal generated by the confirmation of which Volkswagen used a device to falsify them.  A technical commission created by Royal last September, is going to examine a hundred of vehicles of brands commercialized in France to verify the pollution that they generate in habitual conditions of utilization in road, and not only in conditions of homologation, in laboratory.

The holder of Ecology recognized that the tests of homologation used till now do not turn out to be "sufficient" because they are "static", and that it is necessary to do them in habitual conditions of utilization in road.   ( Marcos - adm 3)
