Bug des Tages:

By using sudo npm on a non-root user (root users do not have the same effect), filesystem permissions are being modified. For example, if I run sudo npm --help or sudo npm update -g, all commands starting with sudo npm cause my filesystem to change ownership of directories such as /etc, /usr, /boot, and other critical directories needed for running the system to the current user running the command.

USA - Franklins Fluoride Return to Safe Levels UK Against Fluoridation

...............................Both Rudegair and Jamieson have stated that the morning of February 8, the city received more complaints and contacted the Department of Environmental Protection. They say that at that time, they believed the problem was probably coming from one of two of the industrial plants in the area of the reports.

That is when the city issued the Do Not Drink Water warning to what seemed to be the affected area (previous coverage)
That morning, upon inspecting the water flow, it was determined there was a malfunction of one of the valves. Uncertified field testing of the water showed elevated levels of fluoride. Staff at Barrett Flats also noticed that a pump that put the flow of fluoride into the system was not functioning, and all of the fluoride tanks were empty. They discovered three different malfunctions with the pump which allowed elevated amounts of fluoride into the system. At that time, the staff cut off the fluoride flow from both plants and began to flush the lines, while continuing to take field tests, according to Rudegeair.
Although the malfunctions were discovered on the morning of the February 8, city officials still arent certain exactly when it occurred. When asked, City Manager Tracy Jamieson said, The staff would have noticed if the fluoride was gone on the seventh, but noted that it was something that they would continue to investigate.............

Headlines in major UK Newspapers today:

The drugs do work: antidepressants are effective, study shows

Antidepressants work some more effectively than others in treating depression, according to authors of a groundbreaking study which doctors hope will finally put to rest doubts about the controversial medicine.

Millions more people around the world should be prescribed pills or offered talking therapies, which work equally well for moderate to severe depression, say the doctors, noting that just one in six people receive proper treatment in the rich world and one in 27 in the developing world.

If cancer or heart patients suffered this level of under-treatment, there would be a public outcry, they say.

Its official: antidepressants are not snake oil or a conspiracy  they work

Depression is the single largest contributor to global disability that we have a massive challenge for humankind, said John Geddes, professor of epidemiological psychiatry at Oxford University. It affects around 350 million people worldwide and instances rose almost 20% from 2005-2015.

On the Fence About Fluoride? UK Against Fluoridation

Are thousands of communities around the world (especially in Europe and the United States, still using fluoride? Of course.
The sad truth is that fluoride compounds that are put into our water, toothpaste, and even vitamins were never tested for safety before being approved. Recent independent research by scientists not associated with dental trade organizations have found that fluoride is NOT effective in preventing tooth decay; it actually causes tooth deformity in children, along with a long list of other atrocities. It is so toxic in fact, that toothpaste companies in the U.S. are now required to display a poison warning. Even pro-fluoridation scientists admit that there is no real research showing that fluoride helps prevent cavities.
In 1995, neuro-toxicologist and former Director of Toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, published research that shows that fluoride builds up in the brains of animals causing brain damage. When pregnant animals were administered relatively low doses of fluoride their offspring suffered brain damage and hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms). Adult animals given fluoride experienced the opposite effect hypo-activity, or sluggishness.
The toxic effects of fluoride on the central nervous system were also confirmed by the release of previously classified government research. This research and subsequent studies show that children exposed to higher levels of fluoride had lower IQs. A study published in Brain Research shows that rats drinking only 1 part per million fluoride (NaF) in water had lesions in their brains similar to Alzheimers disease and dementia.

After Years of Crisis in Spain, Pensioners Next to Feel the Pain Rigged Game

Doubts emerge as to who is saving whom.

Structural unemployment and falling wages, precarious jobs, an endless brain drain, a rapidly ageing population, and the governments constant pilfering of the national pensions pot have all taken their toll on Spains social security system. As we warned last November, the countrys Social Security Reserve Fund, which was meant to serve as a nationwide nest egg to guarantee future pension payouts given Spains burgeoning ranks of pensioners has been bled virtually dry by the government.

To avoid wiping out the fund altogether in 2017, the Spanish government extended a 10.1 billion interest-free loan to Spains social security system, which enabled it to pay out the two extra pension payments due in June and December. That way, only about 7.5 billion would be tapped from Spains public pension nest egg. Emptying the pot altogether last year would have been politically unpalatable, said El Pas. Instead, it will be emptied this year as the social security system racks up yet another massive annual shortfall.

In 2016, the system registered its biggest deficit in its history (18.1 billion), which was covered by the pension pot. In 2017, the deficit is estimated to be about 17 billion, according to the government. Thats roughly 1.5% of Spanish GDP. The deficit in 2018 is projected to be 18-20 billion

USA - Why do we have fluoride in our water? UK Against Fluoridation

Fluoride is found naturally in soil, water, and foods. It is also produced synthetically for use in drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwashes and various chemical products.

Water authorities add fluoride to the municipal water supply, because studies have shown that adding it in areas where fluoride levels in the water are low can reduce the prevalence of tooth decay in the local population.
Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems affecting children. Many people worldwide cannot afford the cost of regular dental checks, so adding fluoride can offer savings and benefits to those who need them.
However, concerns have arisen regarding fluoride's effect on health, including problems with bones, teeth, and neurological development..........................

SBC in the Eye AGAIN! North Yorks Enquirer

SBC in the Eye AGAIN!

For the second time this month, Scarborough Borough Council has made it into the pages of the Private Eye magazine, this time on its old stamping ground the Rotten Boroughs column where readers nationwide have been treated, in recent years, to a great many exposs of the antics of arguably the most despised local authority in the country; most recently over the inexplicable decision to waste 4million plus on destroying The Futurist Theatre.

A follow-up to these revelations is keenly anticipated; one source has promised to disclose details of the membership of what is described as a mini-cartel but only after leaving the Council. We could name them now, but why not let them suffer a while? The next local elections at SBC will take place in May 2019.  Of course, by-elections do occur, from time to time. We may not have too long to wait . . . and then the Council can commission MAZARS to investigate. (LMAO).

All this, of course, follows hard on the heels of Helen PIDDs humiliating swipe at SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] in the Guardian/Observer, describing him (quite accurately) as a former estate agent with a penchant for loud shirts and cold chains about right for a local authority whose activities extend to little more than emptying the trash and flogging off (or giving away) the Boroughs assets. Only yesterday, BASTIMANs Tories lost overall control of the Council.

The Tory stranglehold on the Yorkshire coast is already unravelling with todays announcement that East Riding of Yorkshire Leader Councillor Stephen PARNABY [Con.] will not stand next time. BASTIMAN is heading the same way. All political lives end in failure, right?

Did you see this coming? Is the BBC biased?



Looking at Twitter this afternoon/evening, there are (literally) thousands of people with Twitter handles like 'Despise the Tories' or with '#FBPE' after their names or who more generally identify themselves as supporters of Jeremy Corbyn and/or the Labour Party who are joining together to sing an exultant hymn of praise to a BBC interviewer - namely Andrew Neil.

It's amusing (to me) just how many of them begin their praise for Andrew Neil by writing 'I've been critical of Andrew Neil in the past but' and 'I'm no fan of Andrew Neil but...' or 'I confess to not being your greatest fan, but...' or 'I don't particularly warm to AN but...' (and many other variations thereon) before immediately going on to say 'I applaud you today' or 'this was very good' or 'fair play to him with this interview' or 'Biff! Take that, Baker' or 'or 'this is brilliant journalism from him here in skewering Steve Baker' or 'this is a lesson in political interviewing - well played!' or 'credit where its due'. (And 'credit where credit's due' is proving particularly popular).
From zero to hero, it seems!

And this is why:
Naturally, Rob Burley has seized the moment:

Why not read Jeremy Corbyn's "red rag" speech for yourself? AAV



On Tuesday February 20th 2018 Jeremy Corbyn gave a speech to the EFF confederation of British manufacturers about Labour's economic strategy. The response of the Evening Standard (edited by former Tory Chancellor George Osborne) was to publish a front page hatchet job describing the speech as a "red rag" to the City of London, and Jeremy Corbyn's economic strategy as a plot to turn London into "the last Soviet era city west of Pyongyang".

Shockingly hundreds of thousands of Evening Standard readers will have uncritically accepted this ludicrously hyperbolic appraisal of Jeremy Corbyn's speech without even referring to the source material and judging it for themselves.

So here's the speech so that you can judge for yourself whether George Osborne's minions at the Evening Standard were justified in claiming that Corbyn's speech is some kind of proof of his intention to turn Britain into a Soviet style state where private industry is banned, or the outline of a sensible economic strategy to undo the damage and reduce the private debt mountains caused by four decades of hard-right economic dogma:

Political Risk Rises in Italy as Anti-euro Rebels Flirt with Real Power Rigged Game

By Ambrose Evans Pritchard and cross-posted from The Daily Telegraph

It had been assumed that Silvio Berlusconi would control the Italian Right. Suddenly the EU could be looking at a Lega prime minister named Matteo Salvini who plays by very different rules

Large banks and hedge funds are quietly advising clients to brace for trouble ahead of the Italian elections in early March, warning that a late surge by anti-EU populist parties threatens to shatter Europes brief political calm.

A new batch of polls over the weekend showed a further hollowing out of the Italian political centre, with rising risks of gridlock or even the nightmare scenario of a radical coalition in open breach of EU treaty law.

Markets have become inured to political risk after a series of false alarms: the election of Donald Trump, and populist jitters in Holland and France. Worries over a global financial shock from the Brexit referendum were shown to be absurd.

But this may have led to complacency over Italy, which faces the double danger of electoral chaos just as investors start to fret about the tapering of bond purchases by the European Central Bank, currently the only major buyer of Italian treasury debt.

Italian corporates do no offer enough political risk premium ahead of the March 4 election. We would recommend cutting exposure to the region, said Matthew Bailey, a credit strategist at JP Morgan.

Regulatory filings by the worlds biggest hedge fund, Bridgewater, show that it has taken out a giant $22bn (16bn) short position on European equities (as of early February), with big bets against Italys Intesa Sanpaulo and Unicredit, and the energy groups ENI and ENEL.

Bridgewater is also targeting firms in France, Spain, Holland, and Germany, but what is striking is that it tripled its short bets against Italy to $3.2bn between October and February.

This coincides with the steady rise of rebel parties and the seeming death spiral of Italys ruling centre-Left, the main home for pro-Europeans. A new Demetra poll showed the Five Star movement, founded by neo-anarchist comedian Beppe Grillo, pulling far ahead as the biggest single party with 29.4pc of the vote.

The other upset is that the firebrand hard-Right Lega Nord has drawn neck and neck with Silvio Berlusconis Forza Italia and could be in the extraordinary position of picking the next prime minister under the coalition deal of the combined political Right, if they secure a combined majority as looks increasingly likely.

This would propel Lega leader Matteo Salvini who calls the euro a crime against humanity to the centre of European politics. If we win by one vote, Salvini will be prime minister, it is as simple as that, said Claudio Borghi, the partys economics spokesman...

A Tangled Web of Religion in Politics Writings - Gilad Atzmon

jn.png Share

By Laura Stuart 

https://www.islam21c.com/politics/tangled-web-religion-politics/

Some may say that the political arena is no place for religious sensibilities but, now and again, religion does raise its head.

I am a Muslimah who recently joined the Labour Party, not because I believe any political party can solve societys ills but because I had hopes that life in the U.K. could be better than it is now and that we can act to pursue such an aim. In this instance, there emerged a person of upstanding and fair character, a man who seemed to want to make our society more equal and just. Such was Jeremy Corbyn. Hundreds of thousands thought the same and they too joined the Labour party with the same hopes and the same desire to get Jeremy Corbyn elected.

Such was the shock of the establishment elites at the prospect of a leader who seemingly did not believe in working for the benefit of the few to the detriment of the many, that all manner of dark arts were, and are, employed to ensure he never reaches the seat of power. There are some very wealthy people happy enough to make money in this country that, by various offshore activities, minimise the taxes they pay. It is people such as these that do not want a man with a vision of a more egalitarian society in power.

Then there are the foreign policy interests. It seems likely that the Israeli state is particularly interested in ensuring the U.K. has a leader who will turn a blind eye to clear injustice. For this reason, Israel suddenly and unexpectedly sent its top man, Mark Regev, to our shores.[2] This was once the post of Ambassador became vacant after the then-ambassador was reportedly left vulnerable to blackmail from his frequent late night visitors to his official residence.

Most Muslims will know Mark Regev as the man who regularly appeared on their television screens justifying the bombing of civilians in their homes; the raining down of phosphorus on the population of Gaza, and even the slaughtering with missiles of innocent children on the beach.[1]

USA - Cambridge receives Water Fluoridation Quality Award UK Against Fluoridation

Cambridge awardFor the fifth straight year, the city of Cambridge has earned the Water Fluoridation Quality Award given through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Cambridge utilities and public works department was recognized for the award during the Feb. 5 Cambridge City Council meeting.

Fluoridation is the adjustment of fluoride in drinking water to a level that is effective for preventing tooth decay.

The award recognized those communities that achieved excellence in community water fluoridation by maintaining a consistent level of fluoride in drinking water throughout 2016, said Utilities-Public Works Director Todd Schwab. Weve got a really good crew.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiated the Water Fluoridation Quality Awards program to recognize outstanding performance in fluoridation management by public water systems.

Awarded for just doing their job in performing fluoride management ?

Guidelines for fluoride intakeare they appropriate? UK Against Fluoridation

International & American Associations for Dental Research
Guidelines for fluoride intakeare they appropriate?
February 20, 2018, International & American Associations for Dental Research
The appropriate use of fluoride has transformed oral health over the past 70 years, in part due to the guidelines created for fluoride intake. Recently, researchers are questioning these longstanding guidelines which served as advisory recommendations for decades. This issue of Advances in Dental Research, an e-Supplement to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), presents the proceedings of a symposium at the 95th General Session of IADR in San Francisco, USA and includes reviews that critically examine the current guidelines for fluoride intake.

Since the benefits of fluoride in drinking water were first recognized, it has been accepted that fluoride is ingested and that remains the basis for automatic delivery. However, sources of ingested fluoride have changed and in parallel the prevalence and severity of dental caries and dental fluorosis have changed, leading to the idea that it is time to re-visit guidance on fluoride intake. Optimum fluoride intake should balance the prevention of dental caries with minimizing the occurrence of undesirable dental fluorosis.

"Guidelines for fluoride intake were first proposed when water was the only important source of fluoride. Now, there is a variety of ways of delivering fluoride and it was time to review these guidelines, considering current knowledge of the balance of benefit and risk," said guest editor Andrew Rugg-Gunn, Newcastle University, UK and the Borrow Foundation. "Experts from around the world gave reassurance that the current optimum range of fluoride intake is soundly based and that there is good evidence for raising the upper limit of fluoride intake. With the increase in the use of fluoride for preventing caries in adults, different guidance should be given for fluoride intake in adults compared with infants and young children."

"While changes to current guidance on adequate intake and upper limit of fluoride intake have not been settled, it was agreed that there are strong grounds for reconsidering current guidelines," said IADR...

tl;dr Is the BBC biased?


BBC One's News at Ten reported on the 'Cob' story last night, devoting a whole 15 seconds to it. Here's what they said about it in full: 
Labour's Jeremy Corbyn has warned the press that "change is coming," as he accused them of publishing "lies and smears" over his contacts with a Czech spy back in the 1980s. He suggested the reporting showed how "worried" media bosses were by the prospect of a Labour government.

Mystic Craig strikes again (maybe) Is the BBC biased?



Talking of Marks at the BBC (as we were in the post now bumped up above this one!)...

One I trust vastly more than slippery Mark Easton - namely Newsnight's Mark Urban -  has been digging into the 'Corbyn=Czechoslovak spy' story

And, yes, as I result of what I've read from Mark (on Twitter) this afternoon, I'm going to go out on a blogger's limb and firmly predict (with no other evidence yet to to support it other than knowing what the BBC is like) that...

...drum roll please!...

...yes, Newsnight is finally going to report the story tonight - and, even more,  is actually 'go big' with it.

And why do I think that? Because Mark has sounded the 'All Clear' for the far-left Labour leader. 

Yes, from his digging, all's apparently coming up smelling of Bohemian, Moravian and Slovakian roses for Agent Cob...

Alarm Bells Sounded on Wall Streets Derivatives Rigged Game

Steps are a afoot to rekindle the wild west era of derivatives trading on Wall Street.

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens of Wall Street on Parade

On February 14, the week after the Dow Jones Industrial Average experienced two separate days of more than 1,000-point losses, the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Securities and Investment convened a hearing to discuss various legislative proposals to return to the wild west era of derivatives trading on Wall Street. (Many, including Wall Street On Parade, believe that weve never left that era the risks have simply been hidden behind a dark curtain. See related articles below.)

One lonely voice for sanity on the witness panel, which was stacked with industry trade groups, was Andy Green, Managing Director at the Economic Policy Center for American Progress. Greens written testimony stated that the legislative proposals slice, dice, or otherwise poke holes sometimes large holes in the firewalls placed in the derivatives markets by post 2008 reforms.

Green also reminded the Congressional members present that the unregulated OTC derivatives market was at the heart of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, which cost 8.7 million Americans their jobs, 10 million families their homes, and eliminated 49 percent of the average middle-class familys wealth compared with 2001 levels.

Green provided a litany of the derivative horrors that led to panic and financial contagion during the financial crisis. The collapse of the giant insurer AIG from credit default swap derivatives and its role as counterparty to some of Wall Streets largest banks. (In response to the AIG collapse, the U.S. government bailed out the company to the tune of $185 billion. Half of the bailout money effectively went in the front door of AIG and then out the backdoor to the big Wall Street banks and hedge funds that had used AIG as their counterparty to guarantee their bets on Credit Default Swaps.)

Also noted by Green was Lehman Brothers disorderly failure which was exacerbated due to the companys extensive OTC derivatives portfolio. Green reminded attendees that Lehman had around 930,000 OTC derivatives contracts at the time of its failure

An Open Letter to SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN North Yorks Enquirer

An Open Letter to SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] by TIM HICKS, concerning SBC Policy on NYE contributors arbitrarily designated vexatious.

~~~~~

Dear Councillor Bastiman,

Thank you for your e mail.

Further to our recent correspondence, I can confirm that our correspondence and my response to the Councils position have now been published in the NYE. It can be accessed below:

Other than some editorial changes, my response to the Councils position in the article is as previously disclosed to yourself, Mrs Dixon and Mr Kitson in advance.

I think it is enormously to your credit that you engaged in debate with me. However, I was sorry that we could not come to some consensus, or way forward on this. At the end of our correspondence, you summarised your position thus:

Dear Mr Hicks

Thank you for your email containing your draft article.

I cannot support or agree with the inferences and conclusions that you have drawn from my email correspondence, which I believe to be clear.

Please take this as my final response on the matter.

Kind regards

Cllr Derek Bastiman Leader of the Council Scarborough Borough Council

Town Hall, St Nicholas Street Scarborough, YO11 2HG

The Councils policy on e mails from persons designated as vexatious has been raised and discussed in council.

SBC 06.11.17 email interception revelations in full Council

However, the wider ramifications of this policy as applied to NYE contributors and FOI requests have not. It is not generally known that SBC Officers have followed a related policy of declining to provide information requested in Freedom of Information (FOI) Requests from some NYE contributors on the basis that they have been designated as vexatious. This decision is usually notified anonymously in an unsigned mail. Similarly, SBC Officers have also followed a policy of ignoring correspondence from some NYE contributors on the same basis.

In this context, I would refer to the article in the NYE by former Councillor Mike Ward:

On not trusting Mark Easton Is the BBC biased?


If anyone knows who the blonde lady on the left is (and which party she represents) please let me know. She's a missing link in this post.

Last night's BBC One News at Ten featured a report from Mark Easton. 

I've long been in the habit of treating reports by Mark Easton with suspicion - especially if they've got anything to do with Brexit or UK regionalism (please see here for why I'm suspicious about his reporting on the latter. I class him as an advocate for UK regionalism rather than a neutral reporter on the issue).

This report dealt with both subjects, so I was doubly suspicious. 

In this mood, I thought I'd better transcribe the whole thing and then try to judge whether I'm wrong to keep on distrusting his reporting:

Newsreader: The leaders of nine British cities, among them Glasgow, Cardiff and Bristol, have held talks in Brussels today with the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier. The city mayors insist they're not interfering with the UK Government's negotiations but they want to make the case for more European money and power to be devolved to the UK's regions and nations after Brexit. Our home editor Mark Easton reports.
Mark Easton: They've not been able to get a meeting about Brexit with the UK Government, but today the leaders of British cities, both those that voted Leave and Remain, travelled to Brussels to talk to the man on the other side of the negotiating table, the European Union's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier.
Cllr Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council: Really important to emphasise that we're not here to undermine the Government's negotiation...

RBS Forgery Scandal Metastasizes Days before Crucial Earnings Report Rigged Game

The bailed-out megabank hasnt had a year in the black since 2007.

Two weeks ago, UK mega-lender Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) was accused by whistle-blowers of systematically training its staff to forge customer signatures, which elicited furious denials from senior management. But as we warned at the time, if irrefutable evidence emerges of forged documents, not only will management have to walk back those denials but the bank, which has already cost taxpayers 90 billion in bailouts, losses, fines, and legal fees, could end up facing yet another round of costly legal action.

That process has already begun. Now the bank was forced to apologize after retired teacher Jean Mackay came forward with paperwork that clearly showed her signature was forged on a bank document.

Some years ago the great-grandmother discovered she was being charged a fee for payment protection insurance (PPI) even though she had declined to sign up for the rip-off product when she applied for a credit card in 2008. When Mrs Mackay later confronted the bank, staff showed her a document purporting to show she had indeed agreed to the fees. But two signatures on that document one agreeing to take out the credit card, the other apparently signing up for PPI are notably different.

The bank refused to admit any wrongdoing although it did agree to refund her fees as well as 12 in interest. For Mrs Mackay, that was not enough. She wanted an apology and admission of guilt from her bank.

Now, years later and with the publics attention fixed squarely on RBSs forgery scandal, shes finally got it

The Tories are so short of ideas they're recycling Liam Byrne's 8 year old joke note again! AAV


The Tory party are so short of reasons for anyone to actually support the Tory party that they're sharing ancient anti-Labour propaganda from eight years ago.

The first thing to note is that the notorious "no money" note from Liam Byrne was intended as a friendly joke with the incoming Tory administration along the lines of the "Good luck, old cock.... Sorry to leave it in such a mess." note from the former Tory Chancellor Reginald Maudling to his Labour Successor Jim Callaghan.

Then there's the fact that you'd have to be an absolute simpleton to actually believe that an assertion that there's no money left is a serious one, because the Bank of England can create money out of nothing whenever it likes (quantitative easing), and private banks create money out of nothing whenever they issue a loan, in fact the government only produces 3% of the money in circulation (coins and notes). So how can there be no money if the vast majority of money in the modern economy is simply magicked up out of nothing?

It's clear that "no money left" propaganda trope is the same kind of demeaning economic baby talk that the Tories' endlessly repeated "magic money tree" gibberish.

The fact that the Tories keep persisting with these...

Israel Is Directly Arming at Least 7 Syrian Rebel Groups Philosophers Stone

Written by

(ANTIWAR.COM)  Israels mounting interest in Syrias War, and in particular in picking fights with the Assad government, Iran, and any other Shiite factions in the country, have included reports by analysts of a growing amount of Israeli arms and ammunition flowing across the border for rebels.

Officially, Israel isnt a big fan on Sunni Islamist organizations. Such groups are the bulk of the rebellion on the Golan frontier, and thats made them groups Israel has a very serious interest in seeing survive and thrive on the border.

Analysts say Israel is directly arming at least seven groups in the area. To be clear, no specific factions are named in any of these reports, but past reports have put Israel on the side of some very unfashionable groups, like al-Qaedas Nusra Front, which have been active in the area for some time.

Israeli officials have been very public in the past saying they prefer ISIS over the Alawite government in Syria. Expressing such a preference and arming terrorists are two different things, and Israels effort to step up arming for Islamist groups risks regional blowback.

Es wird euch sicher genau so schockieren wie mich, ... Fefes Blog

Es wird euch sicher genau so schockieren wie mich, zu hren, dass die Frauenquote im Aufsichtsrat keines der Versprechen einlsen kann, die die Politik gemacht haben.

When quotas are put on the table, proponents often produce snapshot studies showing that companies with more women on their boards have better returns and are less likely to be beset by fraud or shareholder battles. But causation is hard to prove. Perhaps better-managed companies have more scope to promote diversity. Equally, when studies are conducted before and after quotas are imposed, the results in terms of companies performance are inconclusive. Some studies find positive effects; others the opposite or no effect at all.
Stimmen Frauen denn freundlicher ab, wenn es z.B. um Entlassungen geht? Nein, auch nicht!
But there was no change in the substance of decisions, such as whether to approve lay-offs. It also found that the process did not change because the new members were women. It was because they were likely to be outsiders.
Aber aber aber mehr Frauen im Aufsichtsrat ist doch bestimmt besser fr die Frauen weiter unten in der Hierarchie?! Wenigstens das, Fefe! Wenigstens das!!
Perhaps the most puzzling shortcoming of the quotas is that they have had no discernible beneficial effect on women at lower levels of the corporate hierarchy.
Na sowas. Wie berraschend. Htte uns doch nur vorher jemand warnen knnen!1!!
