  Stephen Oliver's Martial Arts Resources
Stephen Oliver is without a doubt one of the most educated martial arts businessmen in America, but that’s not the reason I endorse his seminar.
At the Ultimate Martial Arts Marketing Bootcamp, I felt like was in some type of secret organization that is revealing the secrets of success only to a chosen few.
There isn't a platform that I know of in the Martial Arts Industry that is open to the public that allows the type of up-close and personal networking that the Extraordinary Bootcamp offers, and I thank you for that.

  Vanguard - Arts: Female representation in Nigerian literature
The dismal representation of women in early Nigerian literature is not unconnected with the patriarchal nature of traditional societies, in addition to the colonially inspired value judgment of the time.
Giving close look at these representations of the female in Nigerian literature, it becomes evident that stereotyping of these nature were carried out primarily by male writers who formed the early teachers of literature.
The realistic representation by these female writers may not be far from the belief that most women tend to be autobiographical in their approach to handling issues affecting other women while the male writers often adopt surrealistic approach in their handling of issues affecting women.

  Representation (arts) Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Representations are, as a result, influenced by culture and in much the same way, have the capacity to shape culture and mould society’s attitudes, values, perceptions and behaviours (Moon 2001).
Despite these restrictions, representations still have the ability to take on a life of their own once in the public sphere, and can not be given a definitive or concrete meaning; as there will always be a gap between intention and realization, original and copy (Mitchell 1990).
For instance, the interpretation and reading of representations function in the context of a body of rules for interpreting, and within a society many of these codes or conventions are informally agreed upon and have been established over a number of years.

Arts players and patrons currently have the formidable task of playing dual cooperative roles in assessing censorship standards and bringing up to date reviewing of numerous art forms.
Government, arts groups and media organisations need to make a more cohesive talent pool, one that is non-segmented and breathes a common language of everyday art, one that the layman can enjoy.
This natural progression and evolution of local arts can only be sustained if the public, government and the artists maintain the attempt to keep the arts in Singapore thriving and alive.

  Mandoki on Schefer   (Site not responding. Last check: )
If the codes of representation always hide something, it is logical to think that this metalinguistic move of translating one code into another -- say painting into writing -- constrains it to an additional system of linguistic articulation and determination that removes the object even further from the subject.
Representation, according to Schefer, is systematic, and involves aspects such as perspective and the hierarchical arrangement of images; it emphasizes the signifier in Saussure's sense of the term.
Against Schefer's thesis on the regimes of representation of the body hiding something, one can argue that there is not such regime because there were individuals, inebriated with their recently conquered right to individuality, who shaped the rules for the representation of the body.

 Representation
Representation can also be defined as the act of placing or stating facts in order to influence or affect the action of others.
These representations, to different degrees, are thought to be somewhat realistic, or to go back to the definitions, they are thought be 'clear' or state 'a fact'.
However, "representation of an underrepresented group is necessarily within the hermeneutics of domination, overcharged with allegorical significance." (170) The mass media tends to take representations of the subaltern as allegorical, meaning that since representations of the marginalized are few, the few available are thought to be representative of all marginalized peoples.
