Спорт это не только физические или умственные нагрузки. Прежде – это склад характера, отношение к окружающим. Занимаешься сам – давай заниматься другим. Не занимаешься сам – тогда хоть не мешай тем, кто это делает. Занимаешься сам, но мешают тебе – значит, ты уже находишься не в том коллективе или окружении.

Гендерное неравенство присутствует во всех сферах социальной и экономической жизни. В мире нет ни одной страны где было бы полностью стёрто гендерное неравенство в экономике, образовании, здравоохранении и политики. Уровень неравенства разнится от страны к стране и остаётся основным барьером к развитию человечества.

My research shows that Lebanese politics tend to strengthen sectarianism included external and internal several factors. The Sectarian system caused uneven distribution of power which causes trouble among rivals. Therefore, that kind of a politic system reinforces sectarianism.  However, as I mentioned in the first part of the paper, this kind of sectarian system creates polarization in all countries.

Gender based inequalities persist in all areas of social and economic life.  There is no country in the world that has fully closed the gender gap across all economic, educational, health and political domains and the degree and causes of gender inequality vary throughout the world. Gender inequality remains a major barrier to human development.

Ты любишь жить, плывя по течению. Это не вопрос. Все придет или уйдет само собой. Если что-то проходит мимо, значит, не судьба. Не стоит напрягаться: мимо так мимо. Живем дальше. Одним днем. Время... Секунды, минуты, часы. С тобой согласятся. Действительно, зачем рвать на себе жилы, пытаясь дотянуться до звезд? И вот он, упущенный шанс.

My personal opinion on the statues and history, — let them be, people need to remember. It is history, political background doesn't really matter in case of question to be or not be. It already happened, you can't change past, but you can hell change the future. That's the point really matter.

Millions of girls globally face a number of challenges to fulfil their potential. In some parts of the world little girls  see limitless possibilities while in  other parts of the world their  horizons are limited. As they reache puberty social and cultural norms, institutions and discriminatory laws block their path forward.  Little girls may be forced to marry, pulled out of school to begin a lifetime of childbearing and servitude to their husbands.

Какая должна быть политика соотечественников за рубежом? Дискуссий на эту тему очень много, и, наверное, у каждой организации соотечественников своё виденье. Я считаю, что движение соотечественников должно быть направлено на создание благоприятной среды для развития личности, поддержку, взаимовыручку друг друга, поддерживать русский язык, культуру и быть открытым миру и новым идеям.

Протекционизм в мире на подъёме. И санкции против России тут не при чём, — это лишь малая толика всей истории. Пока ЕС и США погрязли в торговых войнах за тарифами экспорта/импорта стали, экономисты предупреждают о возврате эпохи политики меркантилизма 1970-х (Если не вообще не 30-х годов).

Did you know women and girls make up half of the world's population and they represent the majority of the world’s poor? It is  devastating to learn that women and girls all over the world are held back simply because of their gender. They are disproportionately affected by discrimination, violence, and exploitation. Too many are deprived the opportunity to an education and to basic health care services.

Opinion on the non-citizens' question by Vladimir Sokolov.

That's our citizen's problem to take care about gaining voting rights for the non-citizens @ the elections. Remember - non-citizens will elect citizens! That means - while non-citizens can't vote - elected citizens aren't quite right. We're afraid that these "not right" citizens will be elected, thus multiply gap in the civil society.

If women’s empowerment is such a compelling factor of success why is it so slow to be delivered?

The World has become  more unpredictable and chaotic, the rights of girls and women are being reduced and leaving women behind means foresaking the important contributions they  make to the global economy. Gender equality describes the absence of obvious or hidden disparities among individuals based on gender in terms of opportunities, resources, services, benefits, decision-making power and influence.

Four weeks into my first semester of college, my academic confidence was completely shredded. I had back-to-back tests in cell biology, chemistry, and calculus, and my time management skills weren’t quite there yet. I failed my calculus exam, and suddenly I wasn’t sure I had the intelligence or the ability to get a degree in science.

2017-й год. От неолиберализма мы шагнули в эпоху неонационализма. Через тысячи красивых лозунгов и обещаний национализм смело шагает по планете. Если в нулевые года принято было считать, что национализм больше свойственен части консервативным странам, то теперь мы видим, что масштаб гораздо более глобальный.
