If people are telling you that they don’t believe what you’re doing, that means you’re doing something out of their comfort zone. And generally, people don’t want to be taken out of their comfort zone because it’s outside of the status quo.
In Mesopotamia or Egypt, for example, the monarch had a god-like religious status. But this is not the case in Judaism. So that notion that religion can go on, when all the markers of power and trappings of monarchydisappear, ultimately serves the endurance of Judaism very well.
Americans have so far put up with inequality because they felt they could change their status. They didn’t mind others being rich, as long as they had a path to move up as well. The American Dream is all about social mobility in a sense – the idea that anyone can make it.
The Arab-Israeliconflict is also in many ways a conflict about status: it’s a war between two peoples who feel deeply humiliated by the other, who want the other to respect them. Battles over status can be even more intractable than those over land or water or oil.
I’ve alwayslikedSaturn. But I also have some sympathy for Pluto because I heard it’s been downgraded from a planet, and I think it should remain a planet. Once you’ve given something planetary status it’s kind of mean to take it away.
I remember being 14 years old, making a pact with myself. I would never join into the matrix, never join into the status quo, and I would always fight it. It always felt like I was on an operating table and the anesthesia never worked.
I have the mindset of a mid-level guy or a minimum guy. My path here wasn’t expected: my path wasn’t that I was going to the NBA and making $16 million a year. So I identify more with those guys, and I want to be a voice for them. I want to help them elevate their status in the league. That’s my goal.
Some say that I should settle down, go slower and not push so hard, so quickly for such transformational change. To them, I say that you misunderstand the size of the problems we face, the strength of the status quo and the urgency of the people’s desire for change.
I think it’s safe to say that ‘manliness’ was a common theme in my upbringing. It was an assumed status, but – and here’s the important bit – it was the Rudyard Kipling kind. The emphasis was on gentlemanly conduct, sportsmanship, fairness and stoicism.
Study after study confirms that even when you control for variables like profession, education, hours worked, age, marital status, and children, men still are compensated substantially more – even in professions, like nursing, dominated by women. No wonder there’s a gender gap.
Digital is not about putting up your story on the web. It’s about a fundamental redrawing of journalists‘ relationship with our audience, how we think about our readers, our perception of our role in society, our status.
I’m used to very strong women because my mother was particularly strong, and my father was away all the time. My mother was a big part of bringing up three boys, so I was fully versed in the strength of a powerful woman, and accepted that as the status quo.
The thing I adore about Mariah the most is she’s probably the most nurturing person I’ve ever met, like one of those spirits that walks into the room and wants to make sure that everybody‘s okay and taken care of. For someone to be at her status but be so concerned about others is really cool.
I consider Bush’s decision to call for a war against terrorism a serious mistake. He is elevating these criminals to the status of war enemies, and one cannot lead a war against a network if the term war is to retain any definite meaning.
It is better for a woman to compete impersonally in society, as men do, than to compete for dominance in her own home with her husband, compete with her neighbors for empty status, and so smother her son that he cannot compete at all.
If you want a president who will upend the status quo in Washington, D.C., and appoint justices of the Supreme Court who will uphold the Constitution, we have but one choice, and that man is ready. This team is ready. Our party is ready and when we elect Donald Trump, the 45th president.
The government of Puerto Rico has every right to hold a plebiscite, to consult the people of Puerto Rico regarding their wishes. But the truth is that for a change in the status of Puerto Rico to happen, you need both Congress and Puerto Rico agreeing to it.
Dick Cheney and Al Gore have redefined the role of the vice president in the minds of the public. It should be a big job, beyond simply checking the health status of the president.
My politics of optimism and hope still casts its lot with the Democrats – in the optimistic hope that the dying embers of its status as the party of our better angels, one that took risks for social justice, can still be fanned into a flame. But I’m an old man, born in 1969.
I think it’s very dangerous, the idea of celebrity – you have to be constantly controversial to maintain the status of celebrity. Reality TV is the death of entertainment – it’s just mindless TV but popular because of its voyeuristic nature, and people are very voyeuristic.
Tolstoy didn’t know about steampunk or cyborgs, but he did know about the nightmarishness of steam power, unrulymachines, and the creepy half-human status of the Russian peasant classes. In ‘Anna Karenina,’ nineteenth-century life itself is a relentless, relentlessly modern machine, flattening those who oppose it.
It is very important for both the parents to spendquality time with their children, at least till they are eight years old, whatever be our social status, or even if grandparents are available to take care of them, and that is the message we try to drive home in ‘Pasanga 2.’
I am not arguing that women ought to ‘settle.’ I am arguing that we can now expect more of a mate than we could when we depended on men for our financial security, social status, and sense of accomplishment.

In an interesting inversion of status, the reigning breed in the dog park these days is the really-oddball-unidentifiable-mixed-breed-mutt-found-wandering-the-street or its equivalent. The stranger the mutt the better; the more peculiar the circumstance of it coming into your life, the better.
We know everything about what you know and how you learn best because we get so much data. And education is the highest-stakes mediaproduct in your life. It’s infinitely more important than your Facebook friends’ status updates or your Google search results because it’s your future.
Being bitter about the success or draft status of someone else is like swallowing Drano and hoping the other guy gets sick. You don’t have time to fret and worry about the other guys vying for what you want.

The key to stopping the hard-right nationalist forces poised to pounce on Brexit isn’t going to be finessing a reprieve for the status quo. It’s about actively creating consent for meaningful change, and expanding democratic participation beyond a second referendum.
Saudi Arabia isn’t the enemy, but it is a problem. It could make so much positive difference in the Islamic world if it used its status to sootheSunni-Shiite tensions and encourage tolerance. For a time, under King Abdullah, it seemed that the country was trying to reform, but now under King Salman, it has stalled.
Special Category Status (SCS) is absolutely necessary for the development of the State. Without SCS, even if we take 60 years, we won’t be able to develop like Hyderabad. But with SCS, development can be fast-tracked.

If you don’t fit into this kind of like gossipy, trendy, Web-hit thingy, you’re relegated to sort of second-class celebrity status.
I absolutely think it is more acceptable for people who were assignedfemale at birth to dress in a typically gender non-conforming way. There was a time when people of all genders had long hair and anyone who wanted to worejewelry – it was more a sign of status than a sign of femininity, per se.
For many young men, joining in a radical movement is a way of feeling powerful, which is particularly intoxicating for men who feel their masculinity has been called into question, whether through victimisation or a failure to achieve the status that they feel they are entitled to.
Writers transform: they throw a hand grenade into the notion of reality that people carry around in their heads. That’s very dangerous, very destructive, but not to do it means you are satisfied with the status quo – and that’s a kind of danger as well, because a kind of violence is already being perpetuated.
Cancer had given me a reverse celebrity status: all the attention for something you didn’t want to be known for. I had crossed over into a new land, the land of Patient. And with every step I was feeling less like Suleika.

American official policy is that Egypt is an ally of the United States. Of course, we recognize that Egypt has gone through a dramatic change in government.

Poland is ready to admit every refugee who arrives in Poland, fleeing the war in the Middle East, no matter their faith or economic status, provided that they comply with our legal regulations and want to stay in our country.
We package everything as a product so we can derive income from it. Then we can occupy ourselves with higher-order psychological lifestyle things. This is a very new issue. Money still matters, but other factors have joined the status game – like how interesting, how meaningful your work is.
Gender is not an easy conversation to have. It makes people uncomfortable, sometimes even irritable. Both men and women are resistant to talk about gender or are quick to dismiss the problems of gender. Because thinking of changing the status quo is always uncomfortable.
I’m not an encyclopedia of ancientEgyptian history, but women did hold positions of status in ancient Egypt. Obviously, famously, people like Nefertiti and Cleopatra actually ruled, which we don’t often think about women having a lot of agency in the ancient world, but in ancient Egypt, they did.
Who doesn’t want to shoot for ‘Vogue?’ I remember updating my Facebook status to say ‘Doing ‘Vogue’ today’, it was so exciting. I thought it would be really intimidating, and I don’t like photoshoots, but that was the most relaxed one I’ve done.
Post-operatively the transplanted kidney functioned immediately with a dramatic improvement in the patient’s renal and cardiopulmonary status. This spectacular success was a clear demonstration that organ transplantation could be life-saving.
Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, ‘Another romantic comedy?’ You see her in something like ‘Walk the Line’ and think, ‘God, you’re so great!’ And then you think, ‘Why is she doing these stupidromantic comedies?’ But of course, it’s for money and status.
People who study primate societies make a distinction between two kinds of culturalinteractions, agonic and hedonic. In agonic societies, you gain status by asserting dominance over others. In hedonic societies, you gain status by drawing attention to yourself. Open source is a hedonic culture.

If you want to be in Hollywood, and if you want to make big international movies, you have to be able to make movies that don’t have anything to do with social status or politics. To limit yourself to just do these little small movies and call it black cinema itself is a mistake to me.
As a black woman, I have no particular interest in maintaining the status quo. Why would I? The status quo is harmful; the status quo is significantly racist and sexist and a wholebunch of other things that I think need to change.
I don’t foresee a future where people don’t have some sort of phone that’s like a computer. I don’t foresee a future where those phones don’t have cameras in them. That spells a future where smartphones are the status quo. You have to ask yourself how you allow people to communicate what’s in their lives.
In the 1999 resolution regarding Taiwan‘s future passed by the Democratic Progressive Party, it is stated very clearly that any change to the status quo of Taiwan must be decided by the people of Taiwan through referenda.
Sometimes I’ll write a tweet that I’ll just be like, ‘Why do I have to say this to all of these people?’ It’s like writing a Facebook status: it’s the same. I view tweeting as like writing a Facebook status. Remember when we used to write statuses?
A courtroom is supposed to be a place where the status quo can be disrupted – even upended – when the Constitution or laws may require, where the comfortable can be afflicted and the afflicted find some comfort, all under the shelter of the law.
I think I’ve matured to a great extent. I think that I want different things now. That it’s not about the celebrity status that you receive because you’re doing the next hot movie. It’s about doing good work.
In an online community, there’s this kind of social economy between the community members. Some people have status because they make cool skins or that’s a good website that’s visited a lot, but there’s no real gameplay there.
Apparently, there are as many as 880 spokenlanguages in India, out of which 31 languages have been given an official status. To hear, decode, process, understand, speak, wait for the next person to decode your message, process, understand and then reply is to have a conversation.
Once you’ve acquired a criminal record, you can be discriminated against legally in employment, housing, and access to education and public benefits. You’re relegated to a permanent second-class status, forever a ‘criminal.’ Inflicting this amount of unnecessary pain and suffering is not cheap.
One might have thought that Brexit would be a wake-up call for the American media. Yet, just as in the U.K. referendum, ‘Russia’ became the buzzword in the U.S. election that the political and media establishments thought would scare people into voting for the status quo.
I think it is essential for Israel’s survival as a Jewish and democratic state that we end the status quo. The preferred way to end the status quo would be on the basis of a two-state solution. We don’t want the Palestinians to be citizens of Israel, nor do we want them to be subjects.
If there’s a kid who’s out there in the world watchingwrestling, and they see me, and they know I have my Ph.D. while I was wrestling, that could possibly inspire them to not drop out of school, to not drop out of college, to go and obtain that type of educational status, and that, to me, means a lot more.
When young women get called bossy, it’s often because they’re trying to exercise power without status. It’s not a problem that they’re being dominant; the backlasharises because they’re overstepping their status.
Our children… deserve to grow up in an environment where fear is not their constant companion. And I’m determined to do everything I can to make sure every kid – in every neighborhood regardless of zipcode, economic status and race or ethnicity – is able to live a life of safety.
My art gets called political, as opposed to my intending it to be political. I think that’s something that happens with black artists or marginalized voices trying to speak truth. Because there are things in the status quo to speak out against, speaking out against them will inherently be political.
