How Breastfeeding Is Viewed Around the World

How Breastfeeding Is Viewed Around the World | Youth Culture | Scoop.it
Breastfeeding can be a polarizing topic. Views vary not only from person to person, but also country to country, according to a new survey examining women's opinions on breastfeeding.

From the data in the article it looks like universally, breastfeeding is seen as a natural occurrence. I think it is more of a human nature behavior rather than a social norm. Therefore it is not as embarrassing in most countries. However in France, about half of the citizens would feel embarrassed if they breastfed in public. The other half feel fine with breastfeeding in public. What this article does not show is how this topic is viewed in Middle Eastern countries.

How Breastfeeding Is Viewed Around the World

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 27, 2014 11:04 AM

How women are treated is something that differs from culture to culture. This issue of breastfeeding reflects a few different issues that are present in society. First of all is the treatment of women and their control over their body.Secondly, child rearing norms and third public openness.

Indigenous Youth: What Wellness Skills Can They Develop Online? Live Graphic Recording

Indigenous Youth: What Wellness Skills Can They Develop Online? Live Graphic Recording | Youth Culture | Scoop.it

Live Graphic Recording: indigenous youth wellness conference (Canada)

In this two-day indigenous youth wellness conference hosted by the Provincial Health Services Authority, youth gave creative presentations about their visions for wellness. Working in partnership with Karlene Harvey, these 6-foot posters were created “live” during the sessions—and the youth were excited and engaged with the process of having their ideas captured right in front of them.

ET Russell's curator insight, July 3, 2013 5:49 PM

Disclaimer:

These four graphics capture the thoughts of Indigenous Canadian youth:

- What wellness skills can Indigenous youth develop online?

- What does Indigenous youth wellness look like?

- Going Home (what are the benefits of going back to country)

- Youth perspectives for an online wellness tool

 

I wonder if there any similarities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths from Australia and Indigenous youths from other countries? 

 

and if so...

How can families, community, society and organisations support,  enable and empower these youths to improve their wellness?

Using Google Earth to Track Down Criminals

Authorities use Google Earth to crack down on illegal activities.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 23, 2014 8:48 PM

This is an old clip, but a useful platform to discuss the ethics involved in using geospatial technologies, the expectations of privacy and issues of governance.  This could also be used to discuss urban political geography and principles of planning.  What are the limits to the legal and ethical uses of technologies?


Tags: google, mapping, geospatial.

Giselle Figueroa's curator insight, September 28, 2014 8:19 PM

I think this is a good tool to the authorities to keep a eye on criminal people. Some people may feel that some one is always watching you because of these, but lets see the good side, this could help the police to find criminals or illegals activities. In my opinion these is a good idea.

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 27, 2014 11:51 AM

Using geographic technology to catch criminals seems like a great use of technology in the digital age. But this is a massive breach of privacy on a global scale. Now with satellite imagery, there is fewer and fewer geographic factors that allow for privacy. No longer can someone move into the woods for solitude, in the past geography could be used as a way to isolate oneself from others, now with technology like "google earth", the globe has become easier to monitor all landscapes and areas. People will have to ask themselves how much they are willing to sacrifice in terms of security. If being monitored everywhere you go means less dangerous activities taking place it may be worth the risk, but we are putting a lot of faith in the fact that those in charge of these technologies will use them responsibly.

"My vote won't make any difference." It's a common refrain among those who don't bother to cast ballots in Canadian elections. But a new analysis of young non-voters in the last federal election suggests they should think again.
