Stereoscopic photography rapidly became a worldwide craze after the Great Exhibition of 1851. Cheap viewers and mass-produced stereographs brought startlingly vivid images within reach of a mass audience, making this the form in which most people first encountered photography a fact largely ignored in conventional photographic history.

Like the commercial suppliers of Magic Lantern slides, stereograph publishers offered systematic coverage of many subjects, even claiming that to visit remote countries by stereo was better than risking the journey.

“Once you’re married, that’s just the end of your football career”. That really hit home for me, as I was chatting to Amy.

Amy’s football journey began when she was 7 years old. She developed her skills playing with boys in the neighbourhood where she grew up in Kenya.

Now she’s the captain of South Sudan’s national women’s team, and the Ambassador of Women’s Football for South Sudan’s Football Association.

In her Ambassador role, she told me she wanted to “inspire girls who have dreams they want to achieve”.

But some communities don’t allow women to play football, “because they believe that women should still be in the house, doing chores, taking care of the family”. So #womeninsport takes on a different meaning…

Please share Amy’s story, and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

To follow the South Sudan women’s team, they’re on Twitter and Instagram @SSFAWomen, and to read more about South Sudan’s new women’s football strategy, check out this article on the FIFA website:

Nose surgery or rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. This procedure can help the patient to correct a structural deformity or a functional problem such as:
*Reduce or increase the size of the nose
*Correct the asymmetry of the nostrils
*Straighten the curvature of the nasal bridge
*Lift the tip of the nose
*Change the angle between the nose and upper lip
*Correct a birth defect or injury
*Relieve respiratory problems due to deviated septum

People who wish to have this surgery must be over 15 years of age, since this procedure can only be performed after the nose has reached its full development. It is not advisable for pregnant or lactating women, nor for people with coagulation and cardiovascular problems.
The surgical procedure can last from 2 to 4 hours approximately. For a correct evaluation of the patient, the nose will be photographed PREVIOUS to the surgery, in 8 different angles and the appearance the nose will have after surgery will be shown in 3D.

BEFORE THE OPEN RHINOPLASTY, THE SURGEON WILL clean the area with AN ANTISEPTIC SOLUTION TO ELIMINATE BACTERIA AND prevent AN INFECTION OF THE SURGICAL WOUND. After this, the anesthetic, which can be local or general, will be administered. If local anesthesia is chosen, the patient will be given a sedative by means of an injection into the nasal tissues, which will numb the nose and the surrounding areas: here the patient will remain awake but drowsy with the help of a medicine that WILL BE ADMINISTERED to through an IV...

If general anesthesia is chosen, it will be administered to the patient through an IV OR via INHALATION through the USE OF gasses or vapors through a mask or breathing tube. To begin the procedure, the surgeon will make two small incisions; The first will be in the columella, which is the tissue located between the nostrils at the base of the nose, here with the help of a surgical retractor that serves to separate edges such as tissue, the specialist will access the inside of the nose, to then make a second incision that will extend from the columella to the interior of each nostril.

With surgical scissors, the doctor will carefully separate the skin along the columella by pulling it upwards. Using surgical scissors and a series of retractors, the physician will continue to very carefully remove the skin from the underlying cartilage which is the cartilage that extends from the nasal bones to the septal portion. Once the skin of the nose is detached from the nasal bone, the surgeon will be able to make the necessary corrections to the nose.

Open rhinoplasty allows the doctor to better modify the nose in patients whose tip is wider or protruding. The specialist may choose to remove a portion of the alar cartilage, which is what helps define the cosmetic contour and nostrils. Likewise, the surgeon may choose to use sutures to direct or draw the alar cartilages inward in order to create a narrower tip or correct their position. One of the main objectives of rhinoplasty is to remove the dorsal hump, which is normally made up of cartilage and some bone that alters facial harmony... To remove it, the SURGEON can opt for the use of an osteotome, which is a similar device to a chisel used to cut bone.

Once the doctor has cut away the desired parts of the cartilage and bone, he can use a delicate surgical rasp to gently tap the protuberances of the nasal bones until they are fractured and displaced upward, thus giving the appearance of a more cosmetic nose.
Por otra parte, la punta de la nariz normalmente es el elemento que manda y por este motivo se ajusta el dorso a las dimensiones de la punta. Cuando el médico ha finalizado la remodelación nasal, las incisiones del interior de la nariz normalmente se suturarán con puntos DISOLUBLES, ES DECIR, QUE EL CUERPO ES CAPAZ DE ABSOBER sin necesidad de retirarlos. En algunos casos es posible LA COLOCACIÓN DE férulas nasales por dentro y por fuera de los orificios para proporcionar soporte y firmeza mientras la nariz cicatriza.

On the other hand, the tip of the nose is normally the element that dictates the goal, and for this reason the back is adjusted to the dimensions of the tip. When the doctor has finished the nasal remodeling, the incisions inside the nose will normally be sutured with DISSOLVABLE sutures, THAT IS, THAT THE BODY IS CAPABLE OF ABSORBING without having to remove them. In some cases it is possible to PLACE nasal splints inside and outside the nostrils to provide support and firmness while the nose heals.

Bruises may appear on the face in the following days after the surgery. There can also be a presence of small hemorrhages, headaches and perceiving a clogged nose. These side effects are not worrisome and will disappear as the days go by. THE stitches, bandages and nasal
splints SHOULD REMAIN on for 5 to 7 DAYS, DEPENDING ON THE doctor’s INDICATIONs.

With the advent of urban societies, women have witnessed discrimination in every aspect of social life: wealth, stature, and power. Their contributions to the state institutions - whether the military, the government or any other - waned in comparison. A reduction in female stature meant an exaltation of male stature, just by comparison - even if not deliberately. The social prowess and prestige that women lost have not been reclaimed. Today, we look at some women who fought against the tides of the socio-economic norms, who broke barriers and captured the seat of power in a male-dominated world.

A Bolder Way Forward for Utah
September 20, 2023

Moderator & Panelists: Dr. Susan R. Madsen, Nubia Peña, & Jennifer Smith
National and statewide studies continue to show that women and girls in Utah are not thriving in critical areas. Year after year, Utah continues to have high levels of domestic violence, sexual assault, child sexual abuse, and gender-based discrimination, while also ranking as the worst state for women’s equality and having low levels of women’s leadership representation in nearly all domains, including politics and business. Although the needle has moved slightly in a few areas, with its current trajectory it will take two, three, or even four decades to make notable progress. It is time for Utah to embrace A Bolder Way Forward (BWF). When we lift Utah girls and women, we lift all Utahns!

The BWF is framed around systems thinking, which is that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” In Utah, we have been working on related efforts for too long using the “parts” strategy; we need to shift and move together as a system. If we are serious about ensuring that Utah women and girls thrive, we need to create change by 2030, with a check point in 2026. Dr. Susan Madsen gives an overview of the BWF and then is joined by Nubia Peña and Jennifer Smith for further discussion about the BWF.

International Women’s Day Celebration: Utah Women Learn, Lead, & Lift
March 8, 2022

Moderators: Nubia Peña & Dr. Susan R. Madsen
Speakers: Lt. Governor Deidre M. Henderson, Noelle E. Cockett, Luna Banuri, & Emma E. Houston
Panelists: Fatima Dirie, Patricia Jones, Liz Owens, & Ann Marie Wallace

Even though Utah has such a powerful history of women using their voices to change society for the better, in recent years Utah has consistently been ranked as one of the worst states for women’s equality. However, Utah women are now emerging in vital ways that lift homes, schools, workplaces, communities, and society at large. As Margaret Mead famously stated, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." As more Utah women collectively strive to use their unique gifts and capacities in ways that can positively transform society, all Utahns can rise together.

A variety of entities partnered together for this event including the One Utah Roadmap, Utah Women & Leadership Project, Division of Multicultural Affairs, Women’s Leadership Institute, Utah Muslim Civic League, Women's Business Center of Utah, Women of the World, YWCA Utah, Utah Domestic Violence Coalition, Women Tech Council, and Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

This one hour power-packed event has many speakers from diverse backgrounds who share their thoughts on learning, leading, and lifting.
