Eve Teasing in Bangladesh
... Eve Teasing: The Man-Flu There’s nothing new to redefine eve teasing to the people of Bangladesh. People, here in our country, who don’t even know whether eve teasing is a Bengali or an English term, at least, know it is something related to sexual harassment of girls outdoor. The feminists explicitly call it little-rape. From the time immemorial, in nature, men have luckily found themselves physically stronger than women. And most probably, this priceless discovery of men helped much lead them, over years, to attain a platform which provided them with a conceptual license to think themselves superior to and worth ruling on women. I suppose, this was the starting point since when women had been blessed with thousands of ways including being sexual harassed. Long later in 1960s, this treatment, with the name eve teasing, broke into media and brought public to attention in India. In the following years, eve teasing grew faster in the Indian subcontinent and unfolded many different virtues like acid throwing, rapes, and even enforcement of girls’ committing suicide. The term eve teasing, if closely observed, is formulated with EVE and TEASE, where eves (females) are though to tempt males for nasty comments, which ironically means - women are the main cause of their sufferings, and males, on the other hand, performs their duty only. I suppose, he who named abusing women as eve-teasing was an eve-teaser, too. Now here’s a situation (not real though): Sabbir......

Adam and Eve Not Adam and Steve
...Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve Gay marriage Some may believe that gay marriage isn’t morally wrong; while mainly strong biblical based Christians (the opposing side) states it is; I am for the opposing side. The policy should not be changed in the states that are against gay marriage, and define marriage as between one man and one woman. In the other states and countries, the legalization of gay marriage still exists. Something should be done about this. Homosexuality is considered an Abomination My first argument is coming from Leviticus 20:13, where it states “a man shall not lie with another man as he would with a woman, and if he does, this act will be considered an abomination in the eyes of God.” When God uses the word “abomination” to describe this specific sin, he is using the strongest and most intense word that He can possibly use to describe what He really thinks about this particular sin. Homosexuality is not what God intended while creating this earth and its people. He created Adam, He then created Eve Male and Female he created them. When God created this earth, and then Adam, he then created a partner for him; he created Eve, not another Adam. This means that perfect partnership requires some level of difference as well as similarity so great to the point that Adam could cry out loudly, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”. Sexual intimacy between a man and a woman is the normal method of male and female bonding......

Eve of the 21s
...Eve of the 21st century CE Mark Twain, in his Diaries of Adam and Eve, published in May 2000, depicts the day-to-day life of the predecessors of mankind in the form of a journal said to be “translated from the original manuscript”. Adam’s diary begins with his encounter with Eve, that irritating, way too talkative creature with a tendency to name things, following him around. Eve is changing the sights of Eden, that she alas baptized “Niagara falls Park”(Twain, 365). After the fall, Adam eventually learns to appreciate the company of his female companion and ends up falling for her, saying “wherever she was, there was Eden” (377). Eve’s diary recounts her discovery of Eden and Adam, and her growing love for him. Human love, replacing that of God, appears as a feeling that does not need an Eden, a feeling that is in itself a redemption. Throughout the excerpts, an image of the two characters can be shaped but also an image of their respective genders’ roles, behaviors and understanding of love… To what extent does the portrayal of Eve in the extracts apply to the expectations for women today? Millenniums later, some of these expectations may have not changed a lot, but some fundamental changes in the way women are perceived did occur. To begin with, Eve is quite the sensitive kind, and the use of the word “feel” (Twain, 368) repeatedly, and the semantic field of feelings (feel, heart, love, passion, romantic etc.) expended in her first diary entry, highlight her......

...“Menace of Eve Teasing: The Problem and the Solution” Eve-teasing, woman rights and our Bangladesh Bangladesh, a developing country, though holding quite a small area is flooded with uncountable problems. Among these, eve-teasing, recently has become the burning issue for the country because of its adverse effects on women, especially to the teenage girls. Eve teasing has remained a concern since many years. But the fact that it has taken a massive shape is of great concern. The practice of eve-teasing is a form of sexual assault that ranges in brutality from catcalls, sexually evocative remarks, brushing in public places, to outright groping and very recently teasing by mobile phone and mobile tracking. It is an obvious fact that no conscious citizen of our country is unaware about this ugly situation created by the youth who follow criminal behavior. Suicide of a probable school or college girl as an outcome of eve-teasing is an obvious news whenever we scroll down the daily newspapers. Eve-teasing has no bounds. Every other person on the streets intend to assault women ranging from rich to poor, being literate to being uneducated. It is very sad that, a healthy number of educated boys from reputed families are growing hanker after towards this practice. According to the report from ‘Bangladesh National Women Lawyers Association’ (BNWLA) the probable eve-teasers on the streets of Bangladesh are teenage boys, traffic police, rickshaw pullers, bus drivers,......

...areas. Though, we have grown by leaps and bounds yet the most basic structure of society is showing no signs of improvement. A thorough look at the news paper daily shows you so many incidents against woman. Eve teasing is a huge issue in many metropolitan cities of India. .A large percentages of Indian women have faced or are facing this menace. Whether it is a public transport system or public places or shopping malls or multiplexes, women find themselves vulnerable to the threat of eve teasing everywhere. Eve teasing is complex problem and it requires more attention that what it has actually got. As we know, the term ‘eve teasing’ is an Indian origin. The term itself has some demerits. Eve represents temptress and the term actually signifies that eves (women) tempt or provoke males for vulgar comments and behaviors. Ironically, that also means women cause the problem and are also a victim to it. But that is almost like blaming the victims for their sufferings. It also depicts an element of male chauvinism. Every man needs to be aware of ‘how to treat a woman’. Eve teasing in India has to do with women empowerment and girl education. What’s the point of education if the people are not even willing to respect women? The traditional mindset often blames the eve teasing incidents on women that they provoke male by wearing scanty clothes. That is actually a lame excuse. Even if females wear modern dresses it does not give men license to harass women. The answer lies......

Adam and Eve
...Caroline Ward Mr. Lane Bible History 2 19 December 2013 Adam and Eve Perhaps the most famous couple in history, Adam and Eve sparked the beginning of humanity, and the loss of innocence. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth, plants and animals, light to separate lightness and darkness, the oceans, and then man. Adam was the first man created. While he was sleeping, "The Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and brought her to the man." (Genesis 1:20). As a result, the first couple was created millenniums ago. What is significant about the creation of man is that it symbolizes the origins of temptation and sin. Adam and Eve were placed by God in a garden in a land called Eden. In the garden, there were two trees, the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge. God told Adam and Eve that they may eat from any tree, except the Tree of Knowledge, and if they were to eat from it, they shall die. A serpent then appeared from the tree. The serpent tempted Eve to eat from the tree, stating that if she did, that she would know both good and evil, just like God. So she took the fruit, and then gave some to Adam. God then punished both of them....

All About Eve
...Abound Eve” All about Eve is a dramatic film in the fifties, that got many academy awards nominations, and won six of the fourteen nominations. I have always enjoyed, the slow transition of changing a character during a film or TV series, I am fully aware it is no easy task, and the character with the most settle, yet enormous change during this film has definitely have to be Anne Baxter. The beginning of the movie was very dull for her character, there was nothing really outstanding about it, and made me question why this actress was nominated for an academy award. Her counterpart, Bette Davis would easily catch my attention because of her cockiness, and Anne Baxter's fascination with Bette Davis's character certainly made Bette Davis a lot more interesting. However during the course of this film, it was all about Eve. So, the film starts with a ceremony, introducing pretty much all the characters, and making sure you notice how Eve receives the award, then the film proceeds with a flash back, explaining how all these characters got together in this same room. As for now Eve is introduced as a humble and respectful character, her fascination for Margo and her plays drive her to meeting Margo one day. When she does Eve tells Margo and her friends about her sad story, but since the character is so dull, up to this point, it didn't affect me one bit, She eventually becomes her secretary/maid which proceeds doing anything she can to please her Idol. Margo realizes her real......

Eve of the Bible
...Eve, the Mother of All Living Bible Ref: Genesis 2:4b and 3:1-24 God created Adam and found him wanting. Enter Eve, formed from Adam’s rib, made of the same raw materials as he, and given the power to choose between good and evil?. In the creation story we find a strong, interdependent Eve, fully engaged with the world around her. She explored the Garden, dialogued with a serpent, decided on the forbidden fruit, and liked it enough to share the experience with Adam. Hagar, the Stranger Welcomed by God Bible Ref:Genesis 16:1-16 and 21:1-21 After God promised He would make of Abram a great nation, Sarai, past childbearing age, suggested he impregnate her maid Hagar. Be careful what you ask for. Once Hagar was pregnant, Sarai regretted her scheme, and heaped so much abuse on Hagar that the weary woman fled. There, in the wilderness, the slave, whose name means, “stranger,” received a comforting message. “The Lord has heard you. God has answered you.” Hagar returned to her abusive mistress with a promise that her own son’s descendants would be too many to count Rahab, a Harlot with a Heart of Gold Bible Ref: Joshua 2:1-24 Centuries before the tart with a heart became Hollywood fodder there was Rahab’s story. She single-handedly saved two of Joshua’s spies by hiding them, lying to the authorities, and helping the pair to escape. As shrewd as she was gorgeous Rahab knew an opportunity when she saw one. “Swear to me by the Lord, that since I am showing kindness to you,......

Based on the evidences –hand drawings, human bones –which were found by the researchers, they predicted that Africa might the place where human was first discovered. About 150,000 years ago, before B.C, people knew how to hunting and picking fruits to survived. Due to the weather changed and other external factors, they had moved to other places around the world where they found new ways to adapt to the new changes and environment. For example, because of the reasons such as not having food or weather changing, people from Africa moved to Yemen and India later. The scientists believed that it was the first immigration in our history of human based on what they found on the cave through pictures of hand drawings and stoned tools. People continued to immigrant to another places because of the harsh conditions and lacking of food. Scientists found that because of the sea level was at really low, people from Yemen and Africa could be able to walk across the sea and moved to the new continent. At there, they had to faced with natural disasters such as volcano, earthquake, new animal attacked like snake cobra, they had developed the new ways to survive by catching fish at the ocean.......

Causes of Eve Teasing
...Eve teasing Eve teasing is a euphemism used in India and sometimes Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal for public sexual harassment, street harassment or molestation of women by men, with Eve being a reference to the biblical Eve. Considered a problem related to delinquency in youth it is a form of sexual aggression that ranges in severity from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing in public places, catcalls, to outright groping. Sometimes it is referred to with a coy suggestion of innocent fun, making it appear innocuous with no resulting liability on the part of the perpetrator. Many feminists and voluntary organizations have suggested that the expression be replaced by a more appropriate term. According to them, considering the semantic roots of the term in Indian English, eve-teasing refers to the temptress nature of Eve, placing responsibility on the woman as a tease, as though the aggressive response of the males was normal rather than criminal. Eve-teasing has been a notoriously difficult crime to prove, as perpetrators often devise ingenious ways to attack women, even though many feminist writers term it as "little rapes” and usually occur in public places, streets, and public transport. Some guidebooks to the region warn female tourists that eve teasing may be avoided by wearing conservative clothing, though eve teasing is reported both by Indian women and by conservatively-dressed foreign women.

...Eve Teasing Eve teasing is a euphemism of public sexual harassment towards women by men, which can range from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing, catcalls, to downright groping and rape. Bollywood movies commonly feature ‘eve-teasing’ as an acceptable form of flirtation for men on the hunt for his special, future wife. Obviously, a tug of a scarf to the tune of a playful Bollywood song is quite different from an uninvited touch on the bus. Sadly, the real evidence of eve teasing comes with unwelcome gestures and comments to Indian women and foreigners alike. The behavior has been a part of masculine Indian culture for many years, but first received attention from the media in the 1960’s. The Effects of Eve Teasing On Locals and Travelers Last December, eve teasing shot right back into public discourse when a female medical student wasbrutally gang-raped on a bus. Since then, more accounts have emerged of Indian women who have been sexually assaulted. Most of these cases go unreported because of the patriarchal attitudes of the police towards the women. What Do We Do Now? While we at GGG are not ones to jump to conclusions due to media sensationalism, deeper reading of various news articles, government advisories, and blog accounts has left me with a concerned and troubled impression. Sexual assaults are still on the rise among the India’s women. According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) statistics, a woman in India is raped every 20 minutes. In fact,......

Laurie kept catching sight of the patterns blinking out of the corner of her eye. She’d turn her head towards the movement, convinced someone was motioning towards her. She really ought to get on with decorating the Christmas tree. It was only, what, nine days until the big day? Laurie had been living in Dublin with herself and her sister as a part of her college. She was admitted at the Trinity College, at Dublin. She wanted to someday want to become a cellist and perform at Madison square garden. She had dreaming of this since the very age of 10 and now her dreams were close to becoming true. She was one of the brightest and most talented students in her batch and it was declared that the valedictorian would get to play a solo alongside Gustave Dudamel, a famous maestro, at Madison square garden for their graduation performance. Laurie was from a middle class family of four, consisting of her father, mother and sister. Her parents were teachers at a local high school and her sister was an accountant. Being the younger child she had more freedom and this gave her an opportunity to follow her dreams and attend the Trinity College. Her sister was going on Christmas vacations and Laurie decided to stay as she had her exams coming up. When she returned she would come back with her brother......

Eve teasing is a euphemism used in India and sometimes Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal for public sexual harassment or molestation of women by men, with use of the word "Eve" being a reference to the biblical Eve, the first woman. It implies that the woman is in some way responsible for the behaviour of the perpetrators of this act. Considered a problem related to delinquency in youth, it is a form of sexual aggression that ranges in severity from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing in public places and catcalls to outright groping.

Starting from the earliest years of their existence, people have always been interested in how they appeared and where they come from. The Real Eve: Modern man’s Journey out of Africa introduces a striking theory about human origin – we all come from Africa. With the help of genetic tracking scientists were able to discover that it took people only 7 000 to leave Africa and make settlements in every corner of the Earth.
Section #1. In my opinion, the first main point of the documentary is that all people on our planet, regardless of their race, ethnicity, skin color or geographical position, come from Africa. The second idea is that people living 150,000 years ago were modern humans, and they had the same brain we have nowadays. The third idea is that there was only one migration from Africa at that time – people crossed the Red Sea and moved to Asia, which is contrary to the theory that they were travelling along Nile and to Levant.
Section #2. As to the first point, I think it sounds quite plausible and all the scientists in the film provide good reasoning to prove their ideas. It is a well-known fact that human genes contain all the information needed to learn everything about people and it only takes time to uncover that data. Having analyzed mitochondrial DNA (a unique DNA of mitochondrial cells inherited from mothers), scientists managed to trace back human earliest ancestor who happened to be an African woman. Sure, it is hard to believe that the huge number of people inhabiting the planet nowadays used to be a small group living on a tiny territory. Moreover, it is yet to be understood how human beings appeared on the Earth on the first place. Still, the scientists have already answered a number of questions about human origin. For instance, many people doubt that we all have the common ancestor, because of drastic differences in appearance: skin color, the shape of the eyes, etc. However, it has been proved that the color of the skin varies according to the amount of melanin in our bodies. Generally, human bodies are so different because of the adaptation to climates. Apart from genetic tracking, there is also new knowledge about geographical conditions and climate changes all of which indicates that Eve really existed.
Another idea presented in the documentary was that people living in Africa at that time were the same as we are now, and that the brain which was using stones as tools is nowadays capable of taking shuttles into space. I also agree with this point, because at that time, the conditions of living were extremely severe. To survive, people needed food which came predominantly from hunting. Hunting is not as simple as it seems, for it requires cooperation, strategic thinking and good communication skills. In addition, due to unfavorable climate conditions, people had to move, and apart from understanding where exactly they should move, they had to think how they would cross huge deserts and the sea and stay alive. Next, Scientists claim that people first migrate into what is nowadays called Europe around 50,000 years ago. There was also a theory that they moved from Africa directly to Europe and not to Asia and then to Europe as stated in the film. However, the analysis of DNA indicates that the Europeans are from the same family that the people who migrated to Asia are and, providing that this is true, all the European history has to be reconsidered.
Section #3. The theory of “Real Eve” is of unparalleled importance to sociologists, because it means that social organization, psychology, social ecology and many other factors should be studied from different angles. First of all, this data is a powerful mechanism in dealing with ethnical differences, discrimination and racism and learning the ways of their elimination, because if we all come from one family, the differences in our appearance are only predetermined by the area we live in. Secondly, this discovery could explain why people started to settle down in different parts of the world and how and why they were doing it. It means that people are not only closely connected to their past, but also to each other, for they all share common ancestors. Moreover, since the people migrating from Africa were actually modern people, we would have to look at human evolution differently. Next, one also has to reconsider the way we organized into groups and separated, made settlements, study social organization and many other factors which could probably finally help us understand where we all come from.
