An NGO, Education Multimedia & Innovation (EMI) has released a notification for its School of Motion to invite the interested people for animation works related to education. EMI was created with an intent to spread animation in the education sector to make the school better, more versatile and create an enthusiastic environment in it.

EMI has asked for submission of short-films using any animation techniques which should be based on educational and scholastic themes. In order to encourage people to send the required short films, it has planned to give cash prizes up to 4500 euros. This initiative falls under Italy’s national Cinema for Schools plan and it has received support from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research and also from the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.

While stating the conditions for submission, the Italian NGO highlighted that all the films should be in the Italian language.

Single Women are Now Getting Dating Leaves at Work

Women compete for head-on with men in today’s fast-growing world. And due to the hectic daily routine, it has become quite difficult for women to find a balance between their personal life and professional life.

As we all know, every person needs some time to relax by indulging himself into some sort of recreational activities. And women also desire for a significant amount of time to find a desirable husband for them. To ease this search for single and unmarried women, some companies do special favors by offering them a leave period for dating to find a partner.

The case is common in the Chinese culture as all the women over 30 years of age in China are considered less desirable. Twin Chinese companies behind a Song dynasty tourist attraction offer single, female employees over the age of 30 an opportunity to have a “dating leave” to find a husband. Hangzhou Songcheng Performance and Hangzhou Songcheng Tourism Management have allowed unmarried women in their thirties, in a “non-frontline” role to take an extra eight days off during the lunar new year.

Due to the less exposure to men, while working in the internal department and unable to find a suitable time to date, it becomes quite challenging for such women to find their true love. After getting such dating leave period, female employees express their happiness enthusiastically and feel the freedom to look for a good life partner.

Hangzhou Songchen Performance’s human resources manager, Huang Lei, shared that this idea of dating leaves was extremely well received by the women. He further explained the reason for the decision, “The ratio of men to women in our company is about the same. But women employees mostly work in internal functional department and some are show performers… some female staff have less contact with the outside world. Therefore, we hope to give more leave to female staff, to give them more time and opportunities to be in contact with the opposite sex.”

With the availability of many dating websites, it has become easier for all people to search for an appropriate partner for them. These dating websites make it possible especially for females to choose their partner according to their partner type, lifestyle and based on other preferences.

Even the homosexual and bisexual women do not face many problems in today’s time as online date sites have made it possible for them too to look for their partner. Many Dutch Websites now cater to Women Looking for Female partners (Sie sucht sie), which has resulted in the growth of online dating in the Netherlands.

Hopefully, this trend will catch on in the UK as well.”
