en:Evelyn Mase[edit]

(Net support = 3; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

Evelyn Mase (18 May 1922 – 30 April 2004) was a South African nurse, who was the first wife of the anti-apartheid activist and future politician Nelson Mandela, to whom she was married from 1944 to 1958. She was the mother of four of his children, including Makgatho Mandela and Makaziwe Mandela.

She met Mandela through her cousin Walter Sisulu and his wife Albertina, subsequently marrying him at the Native Commissioner's Court. Living together as a family in Soweto, they raised four children. However, their relationship came under strain as Mandela became increasingly involved in the African National Congress. Eschewing politics, she became a Jehovah's Witness. Accusing him of adultery, they divorced in 1958, and he went on to marry Winnie Mandela that year. Taking the children, she moved to Cofimvaba and opened a grocery store, but appeared in the South African press when Mandela was released. In 1998 she married a Sowetan businessman Simon Rakeepile. Her funeral attracted international attention, being attended by Mandela, Winnie, and Mandela's third wife, Graça Machel.

en:Fourth dimension in art[edit]

(Net support = 3; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

New possibilities opened up by the concept of four-dimensional space (and difficulties involved in trying to visualize it) helped inspire many modern artists in the first half of the twentieth century. Early Cubists, Surrealists, Futurists, and abstract artists took ideas from higher-dimensional mathematics and used them to radically advance their work.

en:The Flag (O'Keeffe painting)[edit]

(Net support = 1; Against = 33.333%) (Group 2) (No votes from 25 days)

The Flag, painted by Georgia O'Keeffe in 1918, represents her anxiety about her brother being sent to fight in Europe during World War I, a war that was particularly dangerous due to the uses of new and especially dangerous weapons and tactics, like mustard gas, naval mines, high-powered guns, and aerial combat. It was not displayed until 1968, in part because anti-war sentiment was criminalized with the Espionage Act of 1917. It is in the collection of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

en:Sustainable management[edit]

(Net support = 0; Against = 50%) (Group 5) (No votes from 13 days)

Sustainable management takes the concepts from sustainability and synthesizes them with the concepts of management. Sustainability has three branches: the environment, the needs of present and future generations, and the economy. Using these branches, it creates the ability of a system to thrive by maintaining economic viability and also nourishing the needs of the present and future generations by limiting resource depletion. From this definition, sustainable management has been created to be defined as the application of sustainable practices in the categories of businesses, agriculture, society, environment, and personal life by managing them in a way that will benefit current generations and future generations.
