We need food before we start sipping Bacardi. cheesy

Let's go to a busy place by the sea where we can eat, drink and dance. smiley

But wait a moment ............................ we need a second outfit, don't we? grin grin grin


One can never go wrong with food.
Okay we selected your outfit.

Here's mine. Also doing a materialgirl dress in burgundy. Envelop clutch purse by Kate spade New York
Shoes by ... I don't really care. Any designer will do. And belt by Michael kors. Ditch the leggings too.

Do you know any fun places by the sea. Remember we have stilettos on. So they must have a concrete walk path.

Nope, I saw one - the first - who could be considered a creator, then a bunch of mostly entrepreneurs. Males such as Richard Branson and Dangote would not make the equivalent list for men because they make, not create. And a great education is less a factor in being a successful entrepreneur.


As I defined it. Inventing ab initio. Talent shows transform lives, so do lottery wins cheesy. We are talking a different type of transformation here. Not re-creating or even improving. And not buying & selling grin.

Sexism? Me grin. I speak plain truth. Look, how many women are nerds? How many would spend hours in a dark room trying to perfect something arcane? Obsessed with something they may not even be able to fathom the practicalities of at the time?

How many women are bird spotters,or spend inordinate amounts of time tinkering with old machines or waxing lyrical over the engineering of suspension bridges?

How many women dream of conquering the hood, the next country, the seas, or the distant planets, as opposed to the local shopping mall grin.

It's simply the way men are. The nerdiness, the obsessiveness, the curiosity, the drive, the ambition. Those are what lead to breakthroughs, even when they may not be being sought. A lot of transformational stuff is happenstance. Take gaming for example - and I personally don't get it - it's mostly men, mostly nerds, but the advances have been rapid It's wiring.

Sure women have it, women can do it, but not to the same degree. And I am all for them having the equal opportunity to avail themselves of it, if they so desire. It's not sexist, it's realist.

It seems you are set on seeing it through an ideological lens which says there is no difference between men and women, and the difference in achievement or representation is due to oppression (historic or current). But with "oppression" eliminated or factored, there would still be a gap.

Women want the bag, men want to be able to buy the bag for them. Balance, you know that's what you want cool. But seriously, more men may be at the cutting edge than women, but most men won't be anywhere near it either.

All you have succeeded in producing is anecdotal stories. Yes, you're female, but how many females are in your class, department, faculty? And why are they there? As a result of passion or because of government grants and incentives which, interestingly, the males don't usually have.


Also, the likes of Zuckerberg dont have female equivalents in America is because of backward Nigerian mentality? Right.



theres no way I would know the number of females in my course or "faculty" and at least in my programming class there were 7 females and 9 males. And I believe we all did it for passion and to make something out of ourselves. There are no "incentives" or "grants" (I assume you mean Student Loans) for only females... Anyone who is eligible can take up a student loan. smiley


Also, read up on Elizabeth Holmes;

Elizabeth Holmes made headlines for becoming a billionaire at just 30 years old. Today, the founder and CEO of blood testing firm Theranos is still both the youngest and richest woman in the world to build her own fortune, worth an estimated $4.5 billion

So there you have it. Hope I've answered your question. Any other questions could easily be answered by Google just so you know.

Have a nice day cheesy

this shouldn't be a debate topic...
debate topics are controversial, but in this case the answer is just too obvious?

even a day old baby knows that male education is important...
training a girl child is like training another person's child... waste of resources

a family without a girl will be considered OK compared to an all female family....

By the way, I'm sure Hillary Clinton who might be the next president of America is doing better than her male siblings and her parents are extremely happy that they gave birth to her, not another male child.

1. Men generally have more responsibilities than women, they tend to have to cater for more people.

2. Women tend to study useless courses compared to men.

3. Women will most likely not make use of their education, they almost always end up in the kitchen.

4. Men are more logical, no need wasting education on an emotionally dysfunctional robot.

5. Etc, etc


Women like to spout to shite about how women have more degrees than men but how much value do their degrees hold in the scheme of things; in real life, not as a statistic? If your PhD can't produce as much value to yourself or society as a Primary 6 Holder, what exactly is the point of paying all that money and denying someone else the opportunity of studying who would have put it to better use!

The bolded point is way off...google the world's renowned chefs, they are MEN

Emily Levesque

Levesque is a Hubble Fellow who researches massive stellar astrophysics. “Using a combination of observational and modeling resources, my research is aimed at improving our overall understanding of massive stars, both locally and in the early universe, so that we can effectively use them as cosmological tools,” she explains on her website. That means she analyzes immense amounts of data and builds models of star-forming galaxies. Her focus is on how those galaxies are affected by rotation, but she also discovered the three largest stars in the galaxy in 2005. Her work with models and galactic formations has helped other astronomers understand the growth of massive stellar objects. For all of that work, she received the 2014 Annie Jump Cannon prize. Levesque currently teaches astronomy at the University of Washington and also gives public talks about astronomy topics.


Jennifer Doudna

CRISPR is a tool that edits DNA. It allows scientists to add or remove specific genomes in a way that’s never been possible. It is the most effective genomic tool ever invented -- and Jennifer Doudna invented it. Doudna is a geneticist. Her work focuses on using the built-in immune capabilities of bacteria - called CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) - to fight off impending viruses with the help of the Cas-9 protein. Doudna’s research is groundbreaking in its implications for curing disease. It has already been used to change monkey and mice DNA. But the idea of genomic editing is controversial. Chinese and American scientists have applied the technique to human embryos, to great public concern. Yet, Doudna advocates for CRISPR on the strength of its efficacy - particularly against HIV. She’s even given a TED talk to guide its usage. Doudna is a Professor of Chemistry and of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.


Cynthia Kenyon

We've talked about Silicon Valley’s quest for immortality before. What we didn’t mention was that Cynthia Kenyon helps run Google’s Calico project, the frontrunner in that quest. Calico hopes to create age-defying drugs that slow or reverse entropy in our cells. Kenyon, a molecular biologist, is their VP of Aging Research. Kenyon builds on her previous work to research potential solutions. That work includes discovering Hox genes and a genetic mutation in roundworms that increases their lifespans by 65%. Kenyon's lab is currently working on drugs that replicate daf-16 gene mutations to extend lifespan in worm cells. She hopes to have a formula for humans soon. She’s earned many awards for her findings, including the King Faisal Prize for Medicine, the American Association of Medical Colleges Award for Distinguished Research, and the IPSEN Prize.


Stormy Chamberlain

Angelman syndrome is a debilitating neurological developmental disorder with no therapy or cure. Most people consider the diagnosis a tragedy. Geneticist Stormy Chamberlain considers it a puzzle. “The genetics provide an intriguing puzzle that can be taken apart piece-by-piece,” she said in an email. Her research uses iPSC (induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) to model disorders with chromosome 15 mutations like Angelman and Prader-willi syndromes. Her goal is to contribute to a therapy, but her main focus is to help “some really amazing families.” She invites Angelman families to her lab to get a firsthand view of her research. “The visit is a nice opportunity for my students and post-docs to explain their work to those who matter most. It helps motivate them to work hard for a great purpose.” Chamberlain is an assistant professor of Genetics and Genome Sciences at the University of Connecticut, and the Associate Director of the Graduate Program in Genetics and Developmental Biology.


Katherine Freese

Theoretical astrophysicist Katherine Freese is no stranger to dark matter. She was one of the first astrophysicists to propose ways to find it.Freese created the template for a detection experiment used by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. She also devised an experiment tracing dark matter particles’ “wind” utilized by labs worldwide. Her research led her to propose the idea of “dark stars” - stars powered by dark matter instead of nuclear fusion. Freese is a Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan. She is also formerly the Director at the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Stockholm and a Professor of Physics at Stockholm University.


Xiaomei Cong


It takes a special kind of person to look at baby poop and think it can make babies healthier. Xiaomei Cong is that person. Cong works with nurses in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). Her goal is to ease the pain and stress levels of premature babies. She explores the two-way connection between the brain and the microbiome. The pilot project tracked daily samples from 73 babies over two years. Cong and her team charted the differences in poop alongside stressors. Those stressors ran the gamut from normal ones like feedings and changing, to difficult ones like IVs and circumcision. She discovered that babies with the least diverse bacteria in their microbiomes were the most stressed out. Her next step is to explore the link between the microbiome and neurological development.Thankfully, her research is already shedding new light on the causes of - and potential treatments for - stress. Cong is an assistant professor of Nursing Instruction and Research at the University of Connecticut School of Nursing.

Katrin Amunts

For all the recent advancement in neuroscience, there is still a lot we don’t know about the human brain. Katrin Amunts led a team that hopes to fix that. They created BigBrain, a model made from over 7,400 scanned sections of a preserved brain that were re-assembled into a 3D model. The model is the best ever, offering a much finer resolution than the 1 millimeter offered by an MRI scan. “Of course, we would love to have spatial resolution going down to 1 micrometer," Amunts said in a press conference, "[but] there are simply no computers at this moment which would be capable to process such data, to visualize this or to analyze it." BigBrain is available for free. It will allow neuroscientists everywhere to learn more about the construction and organization of the brain. Amunts is a professor at Jülich Research Centre in Germany. She is also Director of the Cecile and Oskar Vogt Institute for Brain Research at the Heinrich Heine University.

Nina Tandon

Nina Tandon grows bones from stem cells. A biomedical engineer, Tandon founded the company EpiBone to make bone grafts less risky. Most patients are forced to choose grafts from their own bodies or dead donor tissue. Those choices both risk infection and rejection. EpiBone changes the game by taking stem cells from a patient’s fat cells and growing them into custom-fitted bone cells in 3-4 weeks. The lab-grown bone heals more quickly and runs a much smaller risk of rejection because it comes directly from the patient. “I see this as being a part of a bigger story that’s integrating biology into part of the supply chain," Tandon told Business Insider. "We're starting to see biology as a technological partner way beyond just making medicines." Tandon hasn’t yet tested her work in actual patients yet, but she is a senior TED Fellow.


Lise Meitner

Lise Meitner isn’t working today, but she is one you should know. Meitner was a physicist and chemist who discovered nuclear fission. She worked with Otto Hahn, but was forced to abandon her work in Germany because of the Holocaust. While she was able to find safety in Sweden, she was unable to find the support to continue her research. The best she could do to continue the project was correspond with Hahn. He was awarded the 1944 Nobel Prize in chemistry based on their work. Meitner, to much dismay and confusion from the scientific community, was not included. While she’s never been given formal credit, the element meitnerium is named in her honor.


Against all odds.

...ah! See cheating, baba'nla ojoro grin. I made a comment - maybe a little tongue in cheek for emphasis - and get labelled a sexist. I back it up with reason and you tacitly demur, but leave the label cheesy. Nicely played wink

I'm happy to be challenged, have no problem being called out, and I'm not beyond reproach, but play fair na? Then when it gets heated, I get blamed for that too tongue.

Anyway, back to the convo. We obviously come from different positions, but with no reason or relative facts, what's the point? So, let me ask you specifically, and anyone in general, this question;

If there had never been any historical, and there was no current oppression, of either sex, and if there were no social norms or imperatives advantaging, or restraining either sex, based on make-up only, would great inventors be pretty much split evenly between male and female?

Sorry I wasn't in the mood to debate. So I didn't even read it. Just didn't want to be ride and act like I was ignoring you. Replying you would have warranted a long post. Just not up to that these days. Sometimes.
