Romanian Beauty Queen Forced To Resign From Hospital Job For Being ‘Too Pretty’

Published

on

A former Romanian model and winner of several beauty contests was ordered to resign from her role at a hospital because she was “too pretty.”

Romanian news portals reported that beauty queen Claudia Ardelean, 27, was appointed to an unpaid position on the board of the Pneumophthisiology Clinical Hospital in Cluj, Romania a little over a week ago.

Delighted for landing her new job, Ardelean, who has a double degree in law and European ethics, posted a picture on social media to commemorate her success on February 8.

“I am thankful for the trust and support of the Cluj National Liberal Party!” she said in the post.

Her post, which was later removed, received backlash as many claimed that she was only given the role because of her looks.

This led the board of directors on the Cluj City Council to “rethink” their decision, as they demanded Ardelean’s immediate resignation.

Ardelean told local news portals that she was understandably stunned by the board’s U-turn on her appointment and disappointed by the backward criticism she faced online.

“Some people’s reactions have been superficial. According to my CV, I have the necessary skills and education to justify my appointment to that position,” she told Business Magazin, as per Google translate.

“By profession, I am a lawyer at a notary office, a double degree holder and a person who is in continuous professional training. I’m even an entrepreneur as I have my own hostess agency and event management company.

“Unfortunately, in Romania, there are still these prejudices. But I believe that beauty should not influence or hinder the professional career of people.”

Ardelean has also actively pursued a career in politics and has previously served as a member of the Cluj National Liberal Party.

Cluj council president Alin Tise said last week that he felt bad for forcing Ardelean out of the job, but affirmed that it had to be done to avoid any “suspicion” or bad press regarding her appointment.

“I deeply regret the incident. I requested the resignation of Claudia Ardelean. Even though she was an unpaid member of the board,” he said as reported by local newspaper Click.

“From a professional point of view, Mrs Ardelean has the necessary qualifications and proper training. Any other aspects that were presented in the press are related to her private life.

“In order to avoid any doubt, suspicion or question marks regarding this appointment, we requested the immediate resignation of this individual.”

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

Published

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID in 2022.

One of the most important ways that societies intervene to buffer the adverse consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage is through the provision of social assistance. Social assistance refers to government programs that provide a minimum level of income support to individuals and households living in poverty.

When people talk about people receiving public assistance – food stamps, disability, unemployment payments, and other government help – they often have stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions of who those people are and what their lives are like.

This view of some people is affecting policy for the growing ranks of our nation’s poor, says a new report from a joint project from Save the Children and the Center for American Progress. The report compares the U.S. means of measuring economic opportunity and poverty with the experience of other countries, including five peer nations on the same income scale. It shows that people in many peer countries are given assistance as a matter of public policy, and these nations tend to view welfare programs as a short-term emergency measure.

Many countries like the U.S and spend significantly more taxpayer money on assistance than peer countries. After a few years of assistance, people on welfare in the U.S. have a much more difficult time finding jobs, according to the recent National Survey of Transitional Assistance Providers. These programs lend support either in the form of direct cash transfers or through a variety of in-kind benefits (e.g. food stamps and rent subsidies). Social assistance has been shown to strengthen the purchasing power of the poor and raise their material standards of living.

However, the government does not provide these social assistance programs to ensure marginalized populations are treated fairly, the report says. In fact, U.S. policy determines participation by significant factors, such as the stigma associated with poverty.

Many social programs determine eligibility before a person’s need for support. They include the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides an additional tax refund to working families. Similarly, these benefits are made available only to the poor, as with food stamps and Medicaid eligibility. The report finds positive signs.

Throughout the world, government assistance helps increase your odds of getting a job, incorporates receiving benefits (by lowering the barriers to receive), raises your wages, and reduces the chances of falling into poverty. This means people who receive the assistance are less likely to experience long-term poverty.

Some nations take a deliberate approach to the provision of social assistance because they view the social support system as integral to promoting social and economic mobility. In many cases, straight into the workforce programs and an expansion.

Access to jobs is crucial to moving families out of poverty. Unemployment and disability, for example, only benefit people when they work. A policy reform could make the social safety net more effective.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

We are yet to see any data of gas volumes into Poland or Bulgaria since Gazprom’s announcement just now.
