Is Norway the promised land? | The Guardian | Guardian UnlimitedGuardian Unlimited
But it was not quite what the United Nations had in mind when it placed Norway at the top of both the Gender Development Index and Gender Empowerment Measure, which assess women’s quality of life and share of power. The country may rate nul points in the Eurovision stakes, but when it comes to the ladies, it’s number one. Of course, one set of benefits does not always correlate with another. Chinese women enjoy low rates of breast cancer, but the preference for sons is so entrenched that 30 million women are “missing” from the population. For a women-friendly study environment, you should try the United Arab Emirates, where 72% of students are female.

McFly hold on to chart top spotBBC News
But Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus only scraped in at number 16 with the The Meaning of Love, the follow-up to her chart-topping debut. The top three albums stayed the same, with Anastacia’s self-titled release at the top, followed by Guns N’ Roses’ Greatest Hits and Usher’s
Confessions. And following publicity to celebrate five years of the musical Mamma Mia! and the 30th anniversary of Abba winning the Eurovision Song Contest, the legendary
Swedish band’s collection, Gold – Greatest Hits, went in at number four. In the classical charts, mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins has gone straight to the top with her debut album Premiere. “My three ambitions have always been to sing
at the Millennium Stadium and the Sydney Opera House, and to get to number one in the classical charts,” said the delighted 23-year-old teacher. ”

“I can’t believe I’ve done all three. I am totally overwhelmed.

Pop diva returns to TallinnBaltic Times
Petersburg and Helsinki, will be the most spectacular indoor concert ever held in Estonia. When she performed for the first time in Estonia at the Linnahall concert hall in 1999, the show completely sold out and so, by the look of it, will this one. Certainly, one might say that “Harem” is a slightly more original sound for Ms. Brightman (perhaps she was inspired by Turkey’s success in Eurovision). Middle Eastern-inspired samples can be found in almost every song on the album. “Harem” is also the name of one of the album tracks, a catchy little number driven by a Turkish disco sound, and which is as sweet as the talk of a street salesman trying to flog a souvenir to a German tourist somewhere in Hurghada. The song’s video features camels, a desert (but of course), the Taj Mahal, belly dancing and various other Middle Eastern paraphernalia, and is certainly a ripe product for MTV rotation.

Estonia pioneers new industry: online sports bettingBaltic Times
Megapanus tried to take this market but failed,” said Kolga referring to the company that tried to establish a foothold in the Estonian gaming industry three years ago. In Kolga’s words, the problem of Megapanus was that it offered only two or three games once or twice a week-not enough to develop and sustain gamblers’ interest. It did, however, manage to organize bets on the municipal elections in Tallinn in 200and on the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002. The Estonian Olympic Committee purchased the lackluster Megapanus and created Spordiennustus in its stead. The new company employs only four people and rents its software from the Aland Islands gambling company PAF, which also owns 20 percent of Spordiennustus. Kolga said plans to expand into Latvia and Lithuania had been discussed. The most important step for a Pan-Baltic operation would be adding Latvian and Lithuanian language support to the gambling software.

Pop princess Samantha Mumba is set to crown the new beauty queen while Eurovision hopeful Chris Doran will perform at the contest in July. Miss Ireland organiser Andrea Roche said she believes Ireland could win the Miss World contest for a second year in a row. She said: “The standard is amazing. It’s not out of the question that another Irish girl can win Miss World this year. “Nobody thought we could win it in the first place.
