Hit me baby one more time.Glu Mobile hopes that its new Britney Spears: American Dream game will follow in the footsteps of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, a mobile gaming sensation which has generated something like $80 million for Kardashian alone since in debuted in 2014.San Francisco-based Glu has struck celebrity mobile game deals with stars who collectively have more than a billion social followers.Glu has to pay these celebrities royalties, but the strategy is a way to avoid spending a ton of money on advertising a game, as it relies on the cachet of celebrities and social media to spread awareness of the game.As with the Kardashian game, the Britney Spears game is aspirational.You also have to fend off rival singers to reach the top, perform at venues from the local Starbeans to international stadiums, and try to get your own stage at Planet Hollywood, the big casino in Las Vegas where the real Britney Spears performs.For Spears, the game represents an opportunity to expand her entertainment empire, as mobile gaming has become a very lucrative endeavor for Kardashian.Glu learned the hard way that fans didn t like its rendition of Katy Perry when it launched a game last fall.Glu is also working with other celebrities including chef Gordon Ramsay and performer Taylor Swift.Niccolo De Masi, CEO of Glu, said in an interview with GamesBeat that the game has tested well and he has high hopes for it.This is a partnership with a woman who has been around as a performer for 17 years.
Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, speaks at the Advancing Asia Conference in New Delhi, India.Because there s a lack of data on such issues as intimate partner violence and women s economic contributions, governments and groups can t identify where services are needed or assess which initiatives are working.A mother nurses her newborn at the maternity ward of the Kailahun Government hospital in eastern Sierra Leone.Gates underscored data s crucial role in supporting women by pointing to recent successes where numbers were key.Since 1990, the number of women dying in pregnancy and childbirth every year has dropped by nearly half.Surveys typically focus on the primary economic activity of the household.
And though expanding our knowledge of the subatomic realm remains her main focus, she s acutely aware that she is now a high-visibility role model for women around the world.The range of issues I have to deal with is much broader than before and includes scientific strategy and planning, budget, personnel aspects, relations with a large variety of stakeholders, etc.There is the question of the lack of role models, and there is the question of making workplaces more family friendly.We need to enable parents, men or women, to take breaks to raise families and we need to support parents with infrastructure and facilities.What are your goals for CERN during this period?CERN recently signed a set of agreements with the U.S. outlining U.S. participation in the upgrade of the LHC and CERN participation in neutrino projects at Fermilab in the U.S.
GIFThanks to the big network upfronts, there s been a barrage of TV updates this week.Note: some of the new shows may not air until 2017 if they are chosen to be midseason replacements.ABCCancelled: Marvel s Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell had already been cast as the lead on another ABC show, legal drama Conviction ; Galavant; The MuppetsReturning: Agents of SHIELD; Once Upon a TimePassed over: Agents of SHIELD spin-off Marvel s Most Wanted, which would have focused on the adventures of Mockingbird and Hunter; Spark, that weird-sounding it s 2016 but everything is somehow totally steampunk dramaNew: Imaginary Mary, about a woman Jenna Elfman whose new relationship is complicated by the fact that her new boyfriend has three kids.It stars Geena Davis and looks to be more of an inspired-by take on the Exorcist concept rather than having much to do with the original movie.Next, there s time-travel comedy Making History previously known as In Time .That s Jason Sudeikis voicing the Hot Pocket-obsessed warrior who cuts quite the odd figure in suburbia.
George Marks/Getty ImagesAs you ve no doubt heard, a second trailer arrived today for the upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters, a movie more controversial than The Last Temptation of Christ, Kids, A Clockwork Orange, and Lolita 2: Mo Lita combined.They fight the ghosts, sans men, in a movie that puts women protagonists front and center and drops them directly into the action.A few months later, Star Wars: The Force Awakens shocked audiences by focusing largely on Rey, a young woman there s that word again!One film critic so hates the idea of the new Ghostbusters that he s vowed not to watch it—not because he s sexist, but because he s logical: Why would any film writer at a sci-fi-loving, geek-culture-championing, deeply nostalgic site possibly want to watch a movie about ghosts and demons and laser guns that s being spun off from one of the most popular 80s franchises ever?Despite the success of the Avengers films—and the Captain America films, and the Iron Man films, and the Thor films—we still don t have a Black Widow movie in the works a real threat, given that actress Scarlett Johansson is a bigger box-office success than nearly all of her Marvel-movie castmates .Your kids should feel safe knowing they could watch three hit movies a day for an entire month and never once see a lead female character.

Despite an extreme gender gap in the free/Libre and open-source software community - even more extreme than in general IT - women who work full time in FLOSS stick with it longer than men, according to a recent report.By analysing results of an online survey completed by 2,183 people in 2013, the researchers found that 14.77 per cent of women dedicated 40 hours or more to FLOSS projects compared to 12.01 per cent of men.The report also found that women were more likely to join FLOSS at a later age of 28 compared to men at 24.Whilst the peak age for both men and women participating is at 21, the number of men still working on FLOSS in their early 30s amounts to a third of those in the field in their 20s, whilst the number of women in their early 30s are 70 per cent more numerous than those in their 20s.The report also uncovered some trivia, such as the fact that both genders were unlikely to have children; over 65 per cent of male FLOSS workers do not have children, though the figure jumps to over 80 per cent for female FLOSSers.Compared to results released in a similar report, FLOSSPOLS, 10 years ago, women's numbers are growing in FLOSS, which the authors say is a fairly recent phenomenon - 38.54 per cent of the women surveyed started in the last four years, compared to only 18.75 per cent of the men.

By that definition, we've been using cosmetics since the Ice Age, where red pigment used to adorn the body was found in South African caves.Instagram and Tinder have only enhanced this, creating a false beauty reality, thanks to the popularity of filters and retouching apps.However, technology has helped broaden the mainstream media space empowering women.For the first time, we're seeing girls of all shapes and sizes, who have a variety of different skin tones, who have extreme acne, being given face time.2 Technology is empowering women to see through the bullshit"In the factory we make cosmetics; in the drugstore we sell hope"Charles RevsonBeauty brands like Revlon create this unattainable image of beauty, and sell hope to women that they may achieve it.3D printing is enabling women to bypass premium brands in the hunt for premium results.
These are the wives of Silicon Valley: women who are integral to the continued success of the Valley s multibillion-dollar computing industry – but also entirely invisible to it.Of the 125,000 H4 dependent visas granted in 2015, 80% were issued to Indian passport holders.A year ago, H4 visa holders won a partial victory: the US government decided to allow those who had been approved for green cards permanent residency to apply for work permits.But unlike their husbands – whose engineering skills mark them out as highly desirable global migrants – many have less-immediately transferrable skills, and so continue to struggle to find employment.Yet the impact of tech s gender bias on families is not limited to H4 wives alone.I could never have gone to grad school if he didn t work in tech … but I am also the one holding the baby.
This scenario is more common on college campuses than we d like to believe, said the app s co-founder, Nancy Glass.Glass, who is a professor and associate dean for research at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing in the U.S., founded the app after 20 years of witnessing women navigate complex, potentially fatal, safety decisions with minimal formal help.It was developed in partnership with the One Love Foundation, an organization that aims to eradicate relationship violence.According to the United Nations, at least one in three women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, mostly by an intimate partner.Since launching at the start of 2014 in partnership with the One Love Foundation, My Plan has been downloaded nearly 15,000 times via iTunes and Android platforms – with nearly 6,000 of those happening in the first few months of 2016.We are interested in speaking to development organisations in diverse settings in low and middle income areas around the world to grow this, says Glass.
