Robert Wright on Newsweek and Foreign Policy

Actually, the only clash here is over which part of the woman should be covered in black and which part should be exposed—and on this issue the two magazines are completely at odds. They are in broad agreement about how to get people to pay attention to your magazine.

I wonder how these covers affect how the cover stories—Newsweek’s by Katie Roiphe and FP’s by Mona Eltahawy—are being received. Eltahawy’s is a particularly interesting case. Her piece is a passionate indictment of the way women are treated in Arab countries. And I would imagine that some of the people in those countries who most resist her message might try to use the cover to discredit it. (Though it’s hard to tell in this thumbnail image, the woman is covered only by paint, and the lower part of her breast is visible.) Then again, there’s an Arabic edition of FP, and it wouldn’t shock me if its cover has a different look.

Yeah

I really don’t think all these

  • academic
  • quasi-academic
  • journalist

approaches can be really responsible for these actually serious issues. There can be much more simple and transparent - and responsible ways to represent problems, voices, and also display solutions-at-work. 

And Robert Wright and Atlantic is taking a cheap shot on this. 

Under ‘Entertainment’ directory/classification.

I tend to feel there is this (strong) ‘America’ thing underlying.

Sensationalize, always talk and think and write and inform and influence from partisan stance. 

You can see it in the URL. The Atlantic’s post is under 'Entertainment' Directory.

Playing ‘Ankhmacholi’ (via rabiat)
Ankhmacholi is a traditional Pakistani game where one of the kids will be blindfolded and then they will have to find others around the house. Rest of the kids will hide under the bed, in the closet or any other imaginable place and would tease the blindfolded kid by making various noises (often to confuse). First one to be caught by the blindfolded loses the game is supposed to be blindfolded in the next turn.

We have almost identical play in Japan called Kakurenbo (かくれんぼ)but it’s almost universal thing (hide and seek etc etc)
