      Since the launch of the provisional IOPS, the process of becoming a fully fledged organisation has included a certain amount of dithering.  While waiting for sufficient numbers, something closer to ideal representation, and strong chapters on the ground, it appears that many of our members have lost interest, or just found other things to spend their time on.    In the most recent poll, those who did respond seem to show a commitment to having a convention and…

These days,there is a lot of talk almost everywhere on this topic - Feminism.But before I get into the main content of the post,let me talk about a misconception that seems to sustain itself at the utter disgust of people who know even a bit of Social Sciences.The irony lies here - I have seen 'beauty bloggers' speak about Feminism!

Preamble (‘Whereas’): People’s daily lives are onerous. I tried to found 2 chapters, one of which reached 14 members and 7 or so meetings, the other just flat on it’s face… In both chapters it wasn’t enough to ask people to be a chapter for the sake of being a chapter, or for helping advance a decision making process, when there was nothing on the horizon for what to decide about. People today are defeatist and cynical, it’s an overarching condition in…
