  COMMITTEE COMMENDS DENMARK’S ACHIEVEMENTS IN IMPLEMENTATION OF WOMEN’S ANTI-DISCRIMINATION CONVENTION
ABEL, leader of the Danish delegation, explained that she was presently engaged in overseeing the development of new measures to further refine many of the issues raised by the experts.
ABEL further explained that every time a new law was passed in Denmark, especially a gender-related one, the new law and its consequences were looked at from the point of view of the consequences that the law would have on both men and women.
ABEL agreed that the lack of women managers “was a mystery” to her.  In the second half of the year, a new programme would be launched to increase their number through participation of the private sector and women’s organizations.

 Abel biography
Abel's father was, however, important in the politics of Norway and, after Sweden gained control of Norway in 1814, he was involved in writing a new constitution for Norway as a member of the Storting, the Norwegian legislative body.
Abel was encouraged by Crelle to write a clearer version of his work on the insolubility of the quintic and this resulted in Recherches sur les fonctions elliptiques which was published in 1827 in the first volume of Crelle's Journal, along with six other papers by Abel.
Abel quickly showed that Jacobi's results were consequences of his own and added a note to this effect to the second part of his major work on elliptic functions.

 Women’s Anti-Discrimination Committee Considers Denmark’s Report   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Abel said that gender equality and women's equal rights were perceived as fundamental values in Denmark and pre-conditions for economic growth.  As a result of Denmark's gender equality work, women and men were equally active in the labour market, with women comprising nearly half of the labour force.
ABEL said that her country considered implementation of the Convention as crucial and, therefore, welcomed the Committee's scrutiny.  She assured experts that the Committee's conclusions would be disseminated and discussed, and that its recommendations would be considered thoroughly.
Denmark's report had been prepared before the new guidelines had been elaborated, and future reports would comply with them, she explained.  She noted the importance of communication in implementing the gender mainstreaming project, adding that the Ministry had educational programmes in place within various ministries through which to disseminate information about the mainstreaming project.

 Denmark : In Depth : History | Frommers.com
Historians conclude that Denmark was a land of frequent migrations, frequent annihilations of one tribal unit by another, and frequent changeovers of the racial texture of the peninsula as one tribe of people was either annihilated or ousted by others.
Part of Denmark's military and mercantile success derived from the general weakness of the German states to the south; part of it was because of a population explosion within Denmark, which increased the pressure for colonization.
Denmark, thanks to its control of the narrow straits near Copenhagen, its ownership of such Baltic islands as Ösel and Gotland, and, in the Atlantic, its control of Iceland and the Faroe Islands, could be accused of being far more imperial than its size, and present-day pacifism, would imply.

It was in Crelle's Journal, that Abel published an expanded version of his proof of the impossibility of solving the general quintic equation, a treatise on the binomial series, and six other submissions.

 The Hindu : Magazine / People : Norwegian mathematical genius
Abel was the first to establish rigorously that there is no general formula to solve all polynomial equations of degree five; subsequently Galois established the impossibility of the solvability of polynomials of degree at least five, and this led to the creation of group theory.
Abel at that time was studying certain algebraic integrals and had a profound realization that one really ought to investigate their inverse functions.
Abel wrote a series of fundamental papers on elliptic functions and integrals, which were, published in the first few issues of Crelle's journal.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Schleswig
In 1231 Abel, the youngest son of Waldemar II, was granted the duchy; he founded an independent ducal line that ruled the duchy for over a hundred and fifty years.
In spite of this union with Denmark both territories remained German in character; the language of the courts and official documents was German, the law of the cities was German, the nobility was German, the bishop and chapter of the Diocese of Schleswig were chosen from German families.
When, upon this, Denmark sent troops into Schleswig-Holstein, not only did the population of the duchies take up arms, but there was also a great national movement in Germany in favour of their endangered countrymen in the North.

800 on, Denmark's main opponent was the Empire of the Franks, and later Germany (the eastern remnant of the Frankish Empire).
From 1441, Denmark and the Netherlands had been working closely together on the international political arena, and this was emphasized by the marriage, in 1514, of King Christian II to a princess of the Habsburgs.
The breakup of the Kalmar Union, however, was in full progress, and the violence culminated in the Bloodbath of Stockholm, in 1520, when Christian II had a number of Swedish nobles and prelates executed.

Søren Georg Abel is an interesting if minor figure in the history of Norway, and his rise and fall accounts for the poverty that dogged Niels Henrik throughout his short life.
The portraits of the important people in Abel's life are particularly well drawn, although his fiancée Christine Kemp remains slightly in the shade: it is easier to find out about energetic male explorers of remote Norway than most women of the period.
Niels Henrik Abel remains an elusive figure, although the pathos of his raging at his early death is well conveyed.

He had been a student in Denmark at a time when the ideals and revolutionary ideas of the French enlightenment were in ascendance, and in all of his later work father Abel especially esteemed the rational and useful.
He was a full-blooded rationalist of the type who were later called "potato priest" (potetprest) because they seemed just as concerned with the physical nourishment and well being of their flock as they were with their souls.
He was actively involved in the age’s turbulent political situation, which resulted in the formation of the new nation of Norway in 1814, and the vicar Abel was twice elected as a representative to the Norwegian Storting.

Abel Gance's 1927 masterpiece is absolutely indispensable for silent-film buffs or anyone interested in classic world cinema.
This ongoing saga of restoration (and much credit is due to the person who seems to have the least legal rights out of the whole cast of those involved in the restored film: Kevin Brownlow) means that a DVD release of the Coppola version, with its many flaws, seems absurd and remarkably selfish and damaging.
Abel Gance's epic is one of the most underated films in cinermatic history.I have been very fortunate to see the screening at the Barbican in London along with Carl Davies and the Wren orchestra.
