H ana Assafiri knows how to harness the power of women. Having recently opened an off-shoot of the vegetarian restaurant in Brunswick East, called Moroccan Deli-Cacy, Assafiri has once again surrounded herself with women, this time in a bid to dispel myths around Muslims and to create a more cohesive society, one conversation at a time. Every fortnight at 3pm on a Sunday, Muslim women gather at the restaurant while Assafiri brings out plates of her famous Arabic pastries and cups of tea. But the people arriving are not just here to eat. Assafiri addresses the group of about 30 men and women who are gathered around the tables and perched on stools, with Muslim women dotted between them. Respectfully, we can ask why people wear the hijab, do they sleep in it, do they shower in it. The point of this exercise is to break down the divisions that exist in this simplistic environment that only seeks to demonise and further marginalise Muslim women. She makes it clear that each woman is offering her own point of view only, and is not speaking for Islam or Muslim people as a whole. There is applause, and the restaurant quickly fills with conversation and laughter. Over the course of an hour, men and women drift between tables and in and out of conversations with the Muslim women.

Tonight was speed dating night and I was excited. First dates have always been my forte, and I looked forward to the challenge of 15 of them this evening. Earlier I had practised some witty opening lines and a few ice-breaker jokes in front of the mirror while I indulged in a little liquid courage. Tara, you are on fire tonight girl. I air-kissed my reflection. I arrived early. On the way, the taxi driver asked if I was going to a party.
I’m not sure why I didn’t just tell him the truth:. Maybe I wasn’t ready to convince a stranger of what I wasn’t sure of myself. How did speed dating catch such an uncool stigma? When I told friends about this evening’s entertainment, they had all laughed. I wasn’t sure I believed her.

Some New York millennials have turned to video speed dating as a way to maintain their social lives amid the stay-at-home order put in place due to the coronavirus. The New York women had recently finished watching “Love Is Blind” on Netflix and wanted to use their talents as social connectors to help singles in their networks maintain their social lives. Mandel and Shane began promoting the project via email and their social media accounts on March 19, and have coordinated virtual dates with another 77 in the works.
Each date takes place via a FaceTime or WhatsApp video call, and daters have just 15 minutes with their match before the date is over. Prospective daters have to fill out a Google Form questionnaire about themselves and what they’re looking for in a partner.

Two weeks ago when we moved into a new building, our headteacher asked our staff; What were we all going to do differently in the new building? We were also asked; what were we going to do to reinvent ourselves? Here, you will find a resource ready-to-go for you and your own staff. Today I took a risk leading staff CPD. Previously, in two other schools where I have led whole-school CPD, I have limited the creative options in training sessions for staff.
Perhaps I am at fault for my own set of expectations; plus the context of the school and the school priorities of that time should be kept in mind, but this evening, I led a staff CPD session that was innovative, creative and engaging. Today, we offered teachers time to talk about teaching and drive grassroots pedagogy. Of course staff evaluations may speak for itself. I did ask staff very clearly, that if this session was of no value to them, then they must let me know so that I can ensure that we develop our CPD vision to become more meaningful to them; to have immediate and direct impact in the classroom.
With this in mind, and with the two questions posed at the beginning of this blog, here you will read and find a resource ready-to-go for you and your own staff to use tomorrow! What better opportunity to get staff together, by using a speed-dating format where teachers can rapidly exchange dialogue, moving from one space to another; to share teaching and learning ideas.

Long-term and meaningful relationships have never been easier. Dating for love done right.
Most people aren’t familiar with speed dating, so we sat down with Stefanie Burgett, Pure Entertainment’s co-owner, to talk about the process. With just two owners, they have a myriad of responsibilities ranging from creative director to event coordinator to designer to marketing manager — everything. It has never been done here in Tuscaloosa to our knowledge. Burgett said that even if you’re in a relationship, you can get in on the action by donning a black or purple arm band to say you’re taken meaning you’d clash and joining the private party.
Everyone’s relationship status will be identified by their arm bands or the color they’re wearing. Single is green meaning you might click and if you’re not so sure how you feel about it all you can wear yellow meaning you should maybe consider. Something different they never get to do and the chance to meet someone pretty amazing,” Burgett said. Although Burgett has never actually participated in a speed dating event before, she said she definitely would if she was single. If you’re single and looking for a new way to meet people, join the party for ice breakers and four minute dates.
At the end of the night, the daters will write down their most compatible dates and once the results are tallied you will be sent your mutual matches.
Virtual Dating Is the New Normal. Will It Work?
A few years ago I downloaded speed dating data from experiments conducted by Raymond Fisman, et al. On each date, people scored each other on attractiveness, intelligence, ambition, and some other things, along with a yes or a no to seeing the other person again on a regular date. Fisman, et al. There are two groups.
How does a person get a body like that, and why is she in need of speed dating? “I suppose I can give you my contact information once we’re done here,” I.
Just as the coronavirus outbreak was reaching New York City, Beckett Mufson, a year-old advertising executive, was ramping up his dating life after healing from a long-term relationship that had ended. In mid-March, he fled the city to live on a acre farm upstate. But he was still interested in finding potential mates. For the hourlong virtual gathering, Mr. Mufson and 11 other singles got to know one another by answering personal questions.
If you could build a dream house, which weird or interesting feature would you include? What is one item that means the most to you? The singles talked as a large group before breaking into smaller conversations of four. Then, they moved on to one-on-one chats. Some dialed in from their childhood bedrooms.
