True, but either boy or girl, if she's from the 90's generation, she'll have no clue, all they want to do is talk back to you and demand for privileges that your hardly earned when you were their age (beware if you don't concede !).

It depends on what areas of study she has found successful and enjoyable so far.

It's the same for any human being.

Do what you are passionate about!

You will never succeed unless your heart and soul is in what you do in life, love, and career.

That's the key to life. What more details do you need?

Re: Which Fied Is Best For A Girl Candidate?

If you are generally interested in an electrical related field, and asking which one is best as a female, I'd have to say choose one that does not involve exclusively working in the field as a technician or electrician, unless you have exceptionally thick skin. Unfortunately, field trades are still dominated by juvenile males who see no problem with not only discriminating against females, but outright harassment and unwanted sexual advances are still too common, even in our enlightened days. That is not to say females are incapable of the jobs, it's to say that the male dominated trades are not yet ready / mature enough to get past the pettiness on gender integration.

And I am talking about being here in the USA, not only that but my experiences in witnessing this are even from the supposedly more "enlightened" West Coast! I have seen plenty of females in the electrical trades, they do fine, but I also see the discrimination and harassment they get, whether they know it or not. It's not pretty. And if it's that bad here, I cannot imagine how bad it might be in other countries where gender integration is still in the medevial era!

So where to go if you like electrical related fields? Get a 4 year degree in Electrical Engineering and see if one of the specialties within that excites that passion mentioned earlier (excellent advice by the way). Females tend to do well in the professions in my opinion, where they can earn and command resect and acceptance. Power engineering is woefully devoid of women in the field, in fact woefully devoid of new talent in general, because electronics attracts more young people who want to be the next superstar. But the reality is that those superstar stories are just like the Hollywood superstar stories; very very few actually make it, and mostly through luck and timing. There are far far more very successful people who live out quieter lives making a comfortable living doing something the enjoy and that pays enough to be able to pursue other passions, and that is a much more attainable goal. Pursue electronics or computer science if you are passionate about it, but not just because you think it might make you rich. Those that go into it thinking that are mostly disappointed.

I have a HUGE problem with this blanket statement as I have wittnessed the same behavior in as i call it carpet land.

There are some MALES that no matter where they are or what position they are in cannot/will not believe that a woman is as/more capable than they are. It is not just trades that are guilty, engineers, doctors, teachers, machine operators, IT, etc.etc. ad nausium.

This is not an issue of job or education, but up bringing, they were taught at a very young age that women are supposed to be in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant.

I welcome women into the fold of skilled trades as you never know what you might learn from them.

If women get jobs as men do there will be unemployment among men forcing them to get involved in crimes to earn money,political revolutions,racist attacks etc. Employment to women should be limited to deserving cases only-extra brilliant women, for women's job,families where no male wage earner available etc

Do you know my Father-In-Law? That's his point of view too.

He's in his octogenarian years, and was a union carpenter (male only field) for his entire working life. He has a reason to be so biased, as that is all he ever knew or was told - what is yours?

Maybe you haven't noticed, but the side effects of unemployment among men seems to be running rampant already.

Maybe we're actually a bit wrong on this, at least we are going at it poorly.

Consider where he is from and his most probable religous affiliation, and that is what he has been taught is correct. Are we really any better than he if we totally disregard his beliefs and deem him to be contemptible by our standards? This is the reason for the rise of factions such as ISIS. We have to find a way to change the world to a kinder fairer place of more freedoms, but not by telling someone his beliefs are crap, as you and I have just done. and, no, I don't know how to do it better - I'm no social worker - heck, I'm barely social.

Yeah - sounds like the USA about 1920 or just past - yes equality is the law - but no, it hasn't really happened yet. What Sri Lanka needs is a damn good war against another country that takes a large number of working age males away from the country and puts women in the factories to make the war equipment. That's when it really started to change here. We have one more advantage here - our most prevalent religion did not necessarily approve of women working, but also did not look at that as a sin punishable by death for treason to the almighty either. It'll take a while longer in some countries. You can't change centuries of cultural in a few years without violent upheavals.

Opinions appearing in CR4 is diverse due to geographic locations, language spoken, racial mix of the country,bad governance,culture,interference by UK,USA,China,India etc as well as individual's intelligence & experience.

Lives of minorities,sometimes even ruling communities are influenced,ruined, destroyed by madness of UN & some dirty superpower located thousands of miles away. I don't need to show examples in the world after forming UN. Due to democracy & sovereignty of state,under these circumstances many don't have freedom,right to express,choice of job,right to take legal action against attackers, complain to UN etc. Lives of many are decided by others.

Unfortunately, that has been the situation in this world for far longer than the UN has been around. It has been that way ever since the first human decided he should rule over others, and, yes, in this case it is a "he". We can't manage to co-exist even in smaller groups without some laws and directives to protect us against ourselves. Un-ruled co-operatives have been tried and failed many times. These laws and directives will always be a compromise and leave some feeling slighted, or even harmed. Basically, even religion is in reality man trying to control others to fit some peoples definition of the "norm", not God or Allah, or whatever you call the supreme being.

"Are we really any better than he if we totally disregard his beliefs and deem him to be contemptible by our standards? This is the reason for the rise of factions such as ISIS."

I think yes. There are some universal "truths" in the world and suppressing the freedoms of individuals, enslaving them, and demeaning them is wrong.

Taking a stand against that is not wrong, but doing nothing is and has been historically proven so.

The reason for the rise of the Islamic State is due to good people refusing to stand up and stop it.

When you consider all the Jews that went into the gas chambers, the reason that happened was that evil men performed the act while good men cowered and refused to stand up and say something.

I am not advocating violence, but I am advocating action. Mahatma Gandhi freed a whole nation from the yoke of tyranny based on the same principles.

Yes, sometimes some peoples' beliefs are crap. History is ripe with them just like it is crap to teach your Palestinian children that indiscriminately killing Jews is a good thing.

This crap will continue until people raise their voices and start saying that they won't stand for it any more. However, we are just too worried that we might offend someone.

Never said he was right or his beliefs were - just said we don't need to slap him in the face. We can tell him we believe he is wrong - but don't hit him in the face and imply he is an idiot, as Lyn and I did. This CAN NOT be changed immediately, unless you advocate military action and enslavement of other countries. The rise of factions such as ISIS is due to this slap in the face approach, change now you idiots message, which has been historically been applied by our western style culture, only a hundred years or so after we "first saw the light". Notice that that faction seems to have no trouble recruiting women, despite the near slave treatment of that sex by them. We've found quite a number from the USA going over there to help. That kind of change, when going against deep historical cultural beliefs, takes many, many years. It takes time and working with them - not slapping them into our beliefs.

He may well have contributions to make to this forum if we don't ostracize him. Yes - his beliefs are wrong by our standards and my standards, but, at least on my part, I am sorry about how I told him this.

No, I was responding to your statement, "Are we really any better than he if we totally disregard his beliefs and deem him to be contemptible by our standards? This is the reason for the rise of factions such as ISIS."

The Islamic State rose to power because good people simply will not stand up to them.

The idea that insults are the cause of the Islamic State is a fallacy.

However, insults will be used to recruit militants by those with evil intents.

Attempting to shut down all possible venues of insult will not prevent this evil from fulfilling its goals or even the birth of such organizations. That's just the way it is with humanity.

The problem is when we stand silent in the face of this evil, not that we voice our opinion of another's actions. That's my opinion and my scruples on the subject.

In the case of Pnaban's statements, it's one thing to voice your opinion and even disgust, but another to use ad hominem attacks to send that message.

I'm not sure that you really verbally attacked him, but I can't speak to your heart or intent (or how you feel).
