Write to Abigail Abrams at [email protected] opine that gender does not matter in sports in which recognition comes from performance alone Sports is so visible and quantifiable that we can see excellence or the lack of it for what it is Being rule-based sports is pure and gender–blind runs the argument But is it It is true that being performance-based hockey could potentially promote gender emancipation But in reality gender discrimination is wired into hockey too manifesting in earnings employment viewership and media coverage The existing male-dominated order of things and the combustible competition for power and status leaves women behind India and Japan players in action during the HWL- Women’s Semi-finals Do the women hockey players get the attention they deserve Getty Images In India when the men’s team wins medals it wins ample rewards but not the women’s team Although in 2016 Hockey India gave identical cash awards to one female and three male players for a hundred appearances for India this was an exception Female hockey players found employment only in the Railways whereas the male players landed jobs in many public companies There is discrimination against athletes from out of the state Forward-thinking Haryana fetes champion female players as much as the men but only those from the state Moreover in a case of discrimination within the male gender itself in 2016 six Punjab players from the Indian men’s team that won the 2014 Asian Games gold medal became deputy superintendents of police whereas players from other states were not considered Powerful local identities were at play Europe and Oceania steal a march over others whether it is earnings viewership or participation Yet in Europe too there is a market-driven gender problem As Marijke Fleuren president of the European Hockey Federation told me with higher television viewership sponsors prefer the men’s game – which is richer – over that of the women For the same reason Hockey India failed to launch a league for women Top female athletes even pay to play Britain’s Olympics champion and ace goalkeeper Maddie Hinch said: “Some of the girls in the British team still pay a 5 match fee to play on a Saturday which seems a bit crazy” Yet as British player Ashley Jackson revealed the success of the Olympics gold medal had earned the women’s team sponsorship and television coverage Exceptionally Hockey Australia pursues absolute equality stealing a march over other sports Hockey Australia chief executive officer Cam Vale said: “Whether you’re a Kookaburra or a Hockeyroo when it comes to basic terms and principles in how we remunerate our athletes it’s exactly the same” Viewership shows discrimination stemming from the broader attitude towards women Attendance at the 2014 World Cup at The Hague was the same for men and women as also for the 2015 Hockey World League Semi-finals at Antwerp which the author attended According to Martin Gothridge former president of the European Hockey Federation and of Hockey England in major tournaments for women stadia in England have up to 5000 spectators The contrast with attendance in games in India is telling During the Hockey World League Round 2 in New Delhi in 2012 the stands were empty whereas spectators attended the Olympics qualifying tournament for men in large numbers With fewer tournaments for women than for men and limited spectator support women’s hockey in India is the bridesmaid and its achievements go under-appreciated In Europe media coverage of hockey is so meagre that discrimination is hard to see In India in 2012 the media celebrated the qualification of the men’s team for the London Olympics while the achievement of the Indian women’s team in reaching the final of the Olympics qualifying tournament in New Delhi was under-reported The Indian women won the 2013 Hockey World League Round 2 in New Delhi but the accolades went to the men The women’s seventh place finish at the Hockey World League Semi-finals at Rotterdam in 2013 was largely on par with that of the men who had finished sixth Yet the media obsessed about the performance of the men When the Indian junior women’s team won a bronze medal in the 2013 World Cup there were celebrations but the story soon disappeared from the media In contrast India’s gold medal in the junior men’s World Cup in 2016 received strong media coverage Gender discrimination is not against female athletes alone In the US hockey is almost completely a female sport leaving male players facing derision or prejudice It takes steely nerves and singular focus for the men to find their niche Nick Richardson of St Anslem’s College in New Hampshire said: “At my own high school I wasn’t able to compete on the high school field hockey team because I was a boy” Happily the International Hockey Federation (FIH) has been taking affirmative action for gender equality Leandro Negre the former president of the FIH and president of honour said that 40 per cent of its management jobs were reserved for women and the ratio was nearly 50:50 in the committees However females did not like to take up coaching assignments creating an imbalance in the numbers he asserted Hockey pursues formal gender equality making discrimination hard to see The number of male and female players in the world being roughly equal it is possible to construct an equal opportunity model for the sport There are two Olympics gold medals one each for men and women and each Olympics has 12 teams The same is true of the World Cup Champions Trophy and World Hockey League Thus gender equality in hockey is a work in progress Jitendra Nath Misra is a former ambassador and vice-president of Jawaharlal Nehru Hockey Tournament Society firstly

Arrivals (DACA) program The overarching question is how many undocumented immigrants he will protect The White House signaled over the summer that it could extend administrative relief for up to several million undocumented immigrants and their families By delaying the decision for political reasons Obama has nudged expectations even higher At a “bare minimum” said Pablo Alvarado executive director for the National Day Laborer Organizing Network the immigration orders should include “an extension of work authorization to everyone who would qualify under the Senate bill and an end to the Secure Communities program and policies that criminalize immigrants The President has the legal authority the moral obligation and the political capital required to take these important steps” The Senate bill which passed the upper chamber in June 2013 with 68 votes would provide relief to some 8 million undocumented immigrants “This is an action that frankly we believe the President should have taken months ago” said Marielena Hincapié executive director of the National Immigration Law Center “The president has broad legal authority to do this Its really about his political will” But there is growing concern that Obama may lack the will to make a bold unilateral move especially if his party suffers sweeping losses in elections that were in many ways a referendum on his policies Two anonymous sources cited by Buzzfeed which reported Tuesday that final recommendations were being sent to Obama pegged the number in the low seven figures And even some of Obama’s allies worry that a President with a mixed record on immigration and an instinct for the middle ground will disappoint the Hispanic community once again “We’re definitely concerned” says a Democratic source involved with the immigration-reform push who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid angering the White House “The history of this presidency is one of trying to accommodate the opposition” Timing is a

trip to Asia The Thanksgiving lull arrives soon after Then Congress needs to hammer out a deal to extend government funding which expires in mid-December amid a crammed lame-duck calendar Executive action on immigration could throw a wrench in those budget talks Immigration reformers urged Obama to withstand those pressures “Some might worry the backlash against a bold program will be too great” said Hincapié But that backlash will exist whether the President extends relief to one person 1 million or many more “Were holding the president to his word” she added “There are no more excuses” Write to Alex Altman at [email protected] the surface the annual Conservative Political Action Conference is a festival of red meat Republicanism part pep rally part college spring break bash with a barely detectable undertone of policy prescriptions But to jaded political observers it has become more like a florid display of the GOP’s identity crisis Beginning Thursday thousands of political activists will gather near Washington During Barack Obamas eight years in the White House this was the capital’s rowdiest and angriest political eventbut it has morphed into a reflection of the tensions within the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump The crisis of American conservatism will be everywhere on display in the three days of speeches at a conference center ballroom in the DC suburb of Oxon Hill Here you will see an anti-immigrant conspiracy theorist and a former sheriff who suggested George Soros was actually behind last weeks mass shooting at a Florida school followed by the President of the United States You will find a discredited provocateur set to sign copies of his book at the same hour as White House counselor Kellyanne Conway addresses the crowd First son Eric Trump will speak hours before Fox News Sean Hannity broadcasts his show live from the stage And what pray tell is the overlap in audience between White House counsel Don McGahn and "Pawn Stars" reality host Rick Harrison From the outside its easy to find the whole event perplexing and disjointed with its sessions about "Taxpayer-Funded Terrorism" "Unmasking the Deep State" and "Kim Jong Un-iversity" Full of fire and fury many of these conversations reflect the most energeticand fringiestsegment of a Republican Party that seems to be tearing itself into pieces As conservative Bill Kristol observed dryly "About CPAC what needs to be said was said by Eric Hoffer: Every great cause begins as a movement becomes a business and eventually degenerates into a racket" Which explains why you wont find many elected officials in attendance Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan are taking a pass this year Ted Cruz is the lone Senator attending the festivities and Fox News favorites outnumber House members on the schedule Yet what plays out on the stage has implications for the bigger conservative movement Republicans enjoyed a resurgence as the decade began but they now have to govern in an environment that has to straddle activists who treat politics as sport the more traditional members of the GOP who turn their noses up at such theatrics and newcomers who bought Trump’s campaign pitches Republican leaders cannot ignore the activists enthusiasm The inevitable "lock her up" chants about Hillary Clinton and roars for the President and his Cabinet mask a quiet uneasiness among rank-and-file conservatives who still read Barry Goldwaters speeches and lionize Ronald Reagan Elected officials especially Republicans who are seen as centrist have to contend with this enthusiasm or face primary challenges from the right They have little choice but to go along with the show if they want to keep their jobs And if Republicans are to successfully defend their majorities in the House and Senate this fall they will need the help of folks who spend thousands of dollars to attend these sessions A super PAC backed by Ryan gave its top volunteers a trip to CPAC as a reward Mainstream Republicans may just have to choke back their objections to some of the disputed claims about minorities immigrants and those in prison The Republican Party of 2018 is one of deep contradictions A party that is home to evangelicals also helped to elect a thrice-married man who bragged about sexually assaulting women on a video Lawmakers set aside their worries about deficits and the debt to pass massive tax cuts last year that will deliver a $15 trillion vat of red ink CPAC the same organization that welcomed former Vice President Dick Cheney as a rockstar surprise guest in recent years is now giving the microphone to far-right European firebrands Nigel Farage and Marion Marechal-Le Pen The CPAC speakers seminars and the audience itself reflect but one corner of the conservative movement at this moment to be sure It just happens to be the loudest and rowdiest and one that meshes easily with Trump But it may not be as durable as its backers want to

Contact us at [email protected] pioneer Emmanuelle Charpentier is a director at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology A recent Max Planck Society report said there is a “bidding war” for female directors AP PHOTO/PETER STEFFEN Do you want to direct a research institute Germany’s Max Planck Society has hundreds of top jobs to fill By Kai KupferschmidtMar 15 2018 10:45 AM BERLIN—Erin Schuman and her husband Gilles Laurent left their jobs at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena a few years ago and moved their family cat and dog halfway across the globe to Frankfurt Germany It took some courage She’s American he’s French and two of their daughters were in school; resettling in Europe was "certainly challenging" Schuman says But the move came with huge professional benefits Schuman and her husband both neuroscientists moved to the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research as "directors" prestigious positions as the heads of large research groups that come with guaranteed funding until retirement and full academic freedom They also had the opportunity to design a brand new lab ("We worked with the architects to maximize the interactions and happiness of our colleagues" Schuman says) The move turned out to be a "tremendously enriching experience" Many scientists may soon have a similar chance The Max Planck Society (MPG) recently took out ads in major scientific journals to recruit 20 new directors in fields ranging from astrophysics to terrestrial microbiology in one of its biggest talent searches ever Between now and 2030 roughly 200 of the 300 director posts at the 84 institutes will become vacant says an MPG spokesperson Many directors are coming up for retirement at the 20 institutes opened in the eastern part of the country after the German reunification in 1990 and so are many of their counterparts at older institutes in former West Germany For the society it marks a turning point: a chance to hire more women and more foreign researchers and an opportunity to open up entirely new fields of research because incoming directors can set their own course (There are also plans to launch completely new institutes on cybersecurity and the origins of life) But it’s also a huge challenge Finding directors is a lengthy process and competition from other institutions seeking top talent—especially women—is fierce And some argue that the society should use the opportunity to rethink some of its traditions Founded in 1948 MPG has a 18 billion annual budget and is Germany’s leading research powerhouse The Nature Publishing Index ranks it as the fourth largest contributor to high-quality research in the world; its researchers have won 18 Nobel Prizes Most of the institutes are led jointly by three to five directors who each also run their own research departments As an MPG director "You have an incredible liberty to research what you want even changing your field if you like" says Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard who won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine as a director at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen in 1995 There are periodic evaluations but a poor result means losing only a fraction of your funding says Schuman who previously held one of the plum positions in US science: as an investigator funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute on a 5-year contract "I did not realize how the renewal clock of 5 years dissuaded me from going for risky ideas until I became a [Max Planck] director" she says When a director leaves or retires MPG doesn’t just look to "fill a certain slot" says Jürgen Renn director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science here Instead it seeks excellent scientists and reshapes the institute’s mission around them sometimes altering it completely When the directors of the Max Planck Institute of Economics in Jena left within a few years of each other for instance prominent economists proved hard to lure to that city So MPG in 2014 refashioned it into the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History which has since done pioneering work on the history of plague The hiring process is arduous Traditionally an institute’s current directors identify potential candidates who are then reviewed by outside referees (The recent ads were a new addition) Settling on a new director can take years The society currently fills about 10 positions a year so the rush of openings may be a challenge And the "explosion of research at universities all around the globe" means that competition "is a lot more intense" says US economist David Audretsch a former director at the Jena institute Finding women is especially hard The number of female directors has gone up from 45% in 2005 to about 15% today; MPG aims to reach 18% by 2020 (Among recent catches is gene-editing pioneer Emmanuelle Charpentier) But a recent MPG report mentioned an international "bidding war" for senior female talent To expand the pool female scientists should receive much more support early in their careers Renn says One effort is MPG’s Lise Meitner excellence program launched late last year which will establish up to 10 new research groups led by women every year Recruiting directors at a younger age could also help Schuman says: "I know this younger pool has lots of qualified and amazing women who can join our ranks" Attracting international talent is another challenge Under Germany’s federal system MPG institutes are spread around the country from big cities like Berlin or Munich all the way to places such as Pln a small lakeside resort in the north that are less attractive to foreigners who want an international school or an airport close by The biggest drawback of MPG institutes is their "outdated" isolation from universities says Thomas Südhof a biochemist and Nobel laureate at Stanford University in Palo Alto California who was an MPG director in the 1990s but left after falling out with Hubert Markl then MPG’s president "Science is a team effort and it’s important who you meet in the hallway or in the cafeteria" Südhof says "The Max Plank Society would profit enormously if they integrated their institutes directly into universities" Schuman says he has a point but warns that integration might lead to a "class system" within universities that favors Max Planck appointees MPG is trying another solution: bringing institutes in the same city together in campuslike clusters As to filling the wave of new director posts "I think we should dare to be riskier" Schuman says "We should not be afraid of failing but rather expect that some failures will accompany our riskier choices which could lead to game-changing discoveries" In other words MPG may just need a bit more of the courage it takes for an individual scientist to pull up stakes and move their lab and family to another continent warning the President that a failure to live up to expectations for executive action on immigration would jeopardize his party’s standing with the Hispanic community.
