WHILE railway officials and passengers unanimously welcomed the concept of an all-women crew for a suburban railway station when it was inaugurated at Matunga earlier this month a series of practical problems and complaints from women employees posted at the station have somewhat dulled the sheen on Central Railway’s unique idea for women empowerment The pilot project of an all-women crew initiated on June 5 involved posting a 30-strong team at the station comprising 14 booking clerks two RPF personnel four pointspersons seven ticket checkers two announcers and a station manager all women Three weeks later the practical challenges have begun to emerge “I live in Titwala and before being transferred here I worked at Shahad station I was posted to Matunga without being asked” said one announcer at the station adding that she suffers from a vision problem and can only see with one eye “Travelling so far late in the night is very difficult for me” she added While almost all of the 30 women candidly expressed their grievances they chose to remain anonymous fearing an adverse reaction from superiors for complaining about the initiative While some of the women are unhappy about having been transferred without being asked others cite the late-night shifts the unsuitable environment around the station and safety issues “Our night duty begins at 11 pm and ends at 8 am This is the time when there are drug-addicts and alcoholics loitering in and around the railway station” said one woman RPF personnel She added that Matunga station is in close proximity to slum pockets and unsavoury elements roam freely around the area “We are apprehensive about stepping on to the tracks to perform our duty in case an emergency chain is pulled or if there is an accident because we are petrified of the dangers in the dark” she added In one incident when a passenger had to be rushed to hospital four male passengers had to be requested to help lift the stretcher A ticket-booking clerk said she has experienced misbehavior and eve-teasing incidents at the booking windows “Vulgar men hover around the counters staring lewdly” she said “As word spreads that there are only women at this station the number of such men will increase” There are infrastructural problems too “The toilet is outside near the tracks and there is no space for workers to take shelter at night after the trains stop” said the ticket checker Station manager Mamta Kulkarni said Central Railway is working on building an indoor toilet expected to be ready in a month’s time Following requests from the RPF women two male constables have been appointed at the Matunga station at night for improved security Despite the hindrances Kulkarni said she is committed to run the station efficiently and hopes to counsel her team regularly in order to keep them motivated Asked about the women’s problems senior Public Relations Officer A K Jain said the initiative had been taken for women empowerment at the behest of General Manager D K Sharma “I have personally visited the station to ask the staff about their issues As a start we have deployed two male constables to guard the staff for security and are working towards building a toilet inside the station We will address more of their concerns in the near future As this is a novel initiative towards women empowerment by the

riders Lilian Calmejane won Stage 8 to the Rousses ski station in the Jura Massif on Saturday for his first victory in his first Tour de France Calmejane riding for French team Direct Energie fought cramp after breaking away on the final climb and hung on tongue lolling for victory in only the second visit by the Tour to the Rousses It was the second win at this Tour for a French rider after Arnaud Demare’s on Stage 4 Tour leader Chris Froome finished in a group further back retaining the yellow jersey ahead of a second far harder day of climbing again in the Jura mountains on Sunday Froome’s day wasn’t without incident: On a downhill right-hand bend after the second of three rated climbs on the 1875 kilometer (116-mile) stage from Dole the three-time Tour champion went straight into roadside gravel instead of cornering Froome managed to stay on his bike and quickly recover But his teammate Geraint Thomas went over roadside barriers Thomas dusted himself off and quickly rejoined the race too and Froome said his teammate was uninjured The corner “sprang up on us a little bit” Froome said “One moment you’re in control the next thing you’re in a ditch” Calmejane held off Dutch rider Robert Gesink hot on his heels on the final climb and rolling finish Cramping from his effort Calmejane had to slow and rise off his saddle to stretch his legs in the final section and then gritted his teeth and pedaled onward to the line “I gave myself a huge fright” Calmejane said of his cramps “It would have been so sad to lose the stage like that” Gesink of the Netherlands’ Lotto-Jumbo team rode in 37 seconds after Calmejane French rider Guillaume Martin placed third on the stage another 13 seconds back By being the first rider to scale the day’s last climb Calmejane enjoyed the added bonus of picking up enough points to take the polka-dot jersey awarded for points collected on climbs off the shoulders of Italian Fabio Aru “Winning alone like that is incredible” said Calmejane who also won a stage at his first Grand Tour the Spanish Vuelta last year “It’s everything I dreamed of” The stage was raced at a furious pace and under searing summer heat sapping energy ahead of Sunday’s monstrous stage Arguably the toughest of this Tour it has seven notable climbs Three are “hors categorie” or defying classification “Tomorrow is going to be very very tough and very selective” Froome said “Some riders will win time others will lose it” To keep Froome in the yellow jersey his teammates never let Calmejane and other riders who rode off at the front of the race build up too much of a lead “We had to ride a pretty fast pace all day” Froome said “My team did a great job of controlling the race I can thank them for keeping the jersey” After eight stages of the 21-stage Tour the top 10 riders in the overall standings are all still close to each other The 10th-placed rider Rafal Majka is only 61 seconds behind Froome overall But that could all change on Sunday Froome predicted the standings could be “blown to pieces” on the 1815 kilometers (112 miles) from Nantua to Chambery in the Alps “It’s going to blow the general classification right open” he

sowingtransplantation and harvesting NREGA has raised the cost of farmingby pushing up labour costs by as much as 40 per cent This is particularly problematic in states like Punjab and Haryana where farmers depend on migrant labourers from poorer states in peak time It isof coursedifficult for the government to meet the ministrys request as the act entitles people to employment under NREGA irrespective of the season in which they demand work But the agriculture ministrys request raises some fundamental questions about the design of NREGA The public discussion about NREGA emphasises implementation problems such as leakages and the lack of social audits HoweverNREGA also suffers from deeper design problemswhere the solution cannot be found in better implementation The act entitles people working under this scheme to 100 days of wages at the minimum wage rate fixed by the state government for agricultural labourers or a wage notified by the Central government If employment is not provided under NREGA to a worker who has applied for workthe state government has to pay an unemployment allowance This design does not take into account the nature of Indias unemployment problem Furtherit is likely to make unemployment persistent and keep productivity growth weak Unemployment in India can be described as mainly structural and seasonal Structural unemployment occursusually as a long-run phenomenonwhen there is a mismatch between the demand for labour and the skills and location of the workers looking for employment This has been the biggest source of unemployment in India Structural unemployment is normally seen as permanent unemployment and can be solved only in the long run On the demand sidean increase in demand for labour arising from growth of industry and services and capital accumulation reduces structural unemployment On the supply sidebetter skills and greater mobility of labour address the problem Seasonal unemployment is seen when the demand for labour varies during the yearas in farming Since nearly 60 per cent of Indians live in rural Indiaand the nature of work here is often linked to agriculturethese opportunities tend to be seasonal Hencein rural Indiathere is an important problem of seasonal unemployment Cyclical unemployment arises when employment grows or declines with the business cycle Since India did not have economy-wide business cyclesin the pre-liberalisation eracyclical unemployment was not significant Even after the ninetieswhen business cycles have become a regular feature of the Indian economycyclical unemployment is primarily seen in urban India where industry and services see low growth Structural unemployment in rural India has been a source of concern for the country In the pre-NREGA erathe solution for underemployment and unemployment was understood to be a transformation of the Indian economy with growth of industry and services Migrationimproving human skills though education and greater participation in the labour force were viewed as the key ways in which employment in India would grow Earlier employment programmes in Indiasuch as in Rajasthan which has seen frequent droughtswere mainly public work programmes intended to give employment to people during periods of drought and famine When conditions in the labour market changed as the drought endedthe programmes ended While NREGA was designed along the lines of such public work programmesit introduced a big conceptual shift It was made a regular feature of labour market regardless of conditions in the labour market Under the Employment Guarantee Act the government is required to pay a statutory minimum wage for each state This wage is often above the market clearing wage in the state Prior to NREGAthe minimum wage in many states was often actually higher than the market wage The market clearing wage was the one at which labourer was willing to work and employers were willing to hire labourers The enforcement of minimum wages was often weak and a feature of unionised labour The informal sector and non-unionised labour market would often clear at wages that were below those set as the officially designated minimum wages In that worldwhile the minimum wage was not a strong feature of Indian labour market regulationit did not do damage Workers accepted market wages below minimum wages when they could not do better With the launch of NREGAwork was made available at above market prices to many individuals who should have been engaged in improving skills and/or migrating By paying for digging earthNREGA took away the incentive for taking the risk of looking for work in the nearest city or in faraway states It took away the incentive for gaining knowledge about work and the human networks required to find jobs Recent newspaper headlines have emphasised the design flaw in NREGAthat it contaminates the ordinary functioning of the labour market in peak season But equally importantNREGA has the potential of making Indias structural unemployment problem a persistent one by taking away the incentive to improve skills and to migrate In the long run no country has been able to become advanced without large-scale skills upgrademigration and urbanisation Problems related to urbanisation have to be faced and solved The lack of migration will have consequences for urban India as well Labour shortages in low-skilled urban jobs are likely to push employers into more capital-intensive production technologies On the other handa large mass of low-skilled labour will be trapped in a state of dependence on the government and politicians Instead of reforming labour laws and improving infrastructurewhich could provide higher employment growththe government enacted NREGA as a quick-fix solution and a vote getter But NREGA will not solve the problem of unemployment in India: instead it is likely to create poverty traps containing millions of people who are cutoff from

a shortened translation in English is here) Albers says he plans to send the piece as a commentary to PNAS as well Van der Lee and Ellemers analyzed 2823 applications for NWO’s Veni grants for young researchers in the years 2010 2011 and 2012 Overall women had a success rate of 149% compared with 177% for men they wrote and that difference was statistically significant But Albers says the difference evaporates if you look more closely at sex ratios and success rates in NWO’s nine scientific disciplines Those data which Van der Lee and Ellemers provided in a supplement to their paper show that women simply apply more often in fields where the chance of success is low For instance women accounted for 51% and 49% of the applications in medical sciences and social sciences respectively; as it happens those fields had the lowest overall success rates (149% and 134% respectively) within NWO By contrast women made up only 12% of the applicants in physics where the overall success rate is highest at 263% All in all men outperformed women in five of the nine disciplines; women did better in four But in none of the disciplines is the difference significant Albers writes He says the study is an example of Simpson’s Paradox the statistical phenomenon that an aggregated set of data looks different when it is broken down As it happens the most famous example of the paradox concerned academic gender bias as well In the 1970s the University of California Berkeley was sued because its graduate school admission policies seemed biased against women But an analysis published in Science in 1975 showed that none of Berkeley’s faculties were biased; women had much lower overall success rates because they applied more often at faculties that were harder to get into "I’m surprised that the authors the reviewers and the editors [of the PNAS paper] didn’t see this" Albers says "You don’t have to be all that knowledgeable about statistics to spot this problem" Ellemers—who recently moved to Utrecht University—says she and Van der Lee were fully aware that the picture looked different when broken down by discipline and that the paper elaborates on these differences The overall success rates "were seen as a problem by NWO" and "were the starting point for our analysis" says Ellemers who’s "not convinced" that Simpson’s Paradox invalidates the findings The overall figures aren’t the most important finding anyway she says; the paper looked at other aspects of the application process in more detail including NWO’s instruction and evaluation materials which they found to contain "gendered" language favoring male applicants The critics "decided to focus on one [statistical] test and burn down the entire story based on that" she says But several other scientists agree with Albers’s conclusion that there is no evidence of sexism "An accusation of sexism especially if it’s institutional has to be made very cautiously" Daniel Lakens of the Eindhoven University of Technology and Rolf Hut of the Delft University of Technology wrote in a letter published in the Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant this morning "That didn’t happen here" Lakens and Hut aren’t claiming there’s no sexism in science and the profession needs more diversity Hut emphasized in an email to ScienceInsider "But you don’t advance that good cause by accusing institutes . of sexism based on incorrect conclusions" he writes Even if you do accept the researchers’ methodology Albers says they have a weak case The difference between male and female success rates is small and with a p-value of 0045 the effect is barely significant What’s more women have bested men in years not included in this analysis; for instance in the 2015 round of Veni grants announced in August women had a 149% success rate versus 139% for men "Sometimes women do better sometimes men as you would expect" Albers says "That’s how chance works" A spokesperson for NWO referred ScienceInsider’s questions about the PNAS paper to the authors but said the organization will go ahead with its reforms because they’re a good idea regardless of the paper’s quality Among other things NWO is planning a pilot experiment to see whether additional training for reviewers can improve women’s success rates *Update 24 September 3:00 am: A few sentences have been changed to better reflect Ellemers’ response to the criticismWritten by Debesh Banerjee | New Delhi | Published: March 8 2010 12:33 am Related News Delhi-based travel photographer on a 30-day bike tripadvocating safer roads by distributing pamphlets wherever he goes Twenty-eight-year-old Delhi-based travel photographer Roby Das is an avid biker But he believes in using his passion as a tool for advocating social awareness It is one thing to love bikesanother when you use it to convey a message?but now it has requested the department to provide them a dough kneader to facilitate baking chapattis. owned by a Bengali family that collects old books.)

that may help predict how severely a newborn can be affected by alcohol exposure during pregnancy The findings could facilitate early intervention to improve the health of infants and children who were prenatally exposed to alcohol researchers including those from University of California San Diego in the US said Fetal alcohol syndrome is a severe form of a spectrum of mental and physical disabilities called foetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) that can affect children’s development with long-lasting consequences In the US and Western Europe it is estimated that 2 to 5 per cent of school-age children are affected by FASD In some parts of the world the number is higher Children and adults affected by FASD may experience a range of symptoms from physical changes like a small head and subtle differences in facial characteristics to learning difficulties and behavioural issues Despite widespread prevention guidelines drinking during pregnancy still occurs in part because roughly half of pregnancies in the US are unplanned and many women may not realise that they need to stop consuming alcohol before harm occurs “It is a huge problem but we might not realise the full scope because infants born with normal-looking physical features may be missed making many cases difficult to diagnose early” said Rajesh Miranda professor in the Texas A&M College of Medicine Seeking to develop a predictive test using biomarkers researchers looked at birth outcomes for 68 pregnant women enrolled in the study at two perinatal care clinics in western Ukraine The team obtained detailed health and alcohol consumption histories and second and third trimester blood samples from each woman The results indicated that moderate to high levels of alcohol exposure during early pregnancy resulted in significant differences in some circulating small RNA molecules called microRNAs (miRNAs) in maternal blood These differences were particularly notable in mothers whose infants showed some physical or neurobehavioral signs of alcohol effects in the first 12 months of life “Collectively our data indicate that maternal plasma miRNAs may help predict infant outcomes and may be useful to classify difficult-to-diagnose FASD subpopulations” Miranda said Part of the reason FASD can be difficult to diagnose is because infants with similar amounts of prenatal alcohol exposure may have
