Просмотр полной версии : TİME magazine. 100 most influential people in the world

21.04.2013, 12:12
TİME magazine опубликовал свою очередную, 10-ю версию (http://time100.time.com/2013/04/18/time-100/slide/all/)100 самых влиятельных людей мира.

Сотня распределена по 5 разделам - титаны, лидеры, творческие люди, пионеры и иконы.

Конечно же, в списке есть члены одной семьи - "лидер" Барак Обама и "икона" Мишель Обама. )

Составление таких списков носит сугубо субъективный характер, так как всем вкусам не угодишь, но таймсовский список ежегодно ожидается с интересом и люди туда попадают не случайно.

Не буду разбирать весь список, выделю пятерых - это "титан" Магнус Карлсен и "иконы" Малала Юсуфзай и Ли На, а также "лидер" Камала Харрис, которую президент Обама не так давно назвал "самым привлекательным американским прокурором". )

Отдельно отмечу "икону" Пэн Лиюань - первую леди Китая. Как отмечается, она явила миру гламур категории "сделано в Китае". Пример, достойный подражания. :wink2:


Magnus Carlsen

Chess wunderkind, 22

By Garry KasparovApril 18, 2013

Chess history is best viewed through the game’s evolution: the Romantic Era of the 19th century, the Hypermodernism of the early 20th, the post–World War II dominance of the Soviet School. The elite chess players of today are of no school. They hail from all over the world, as illustrated by current world champion Viswanathan Anand of India and young Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, who is due to challenge Anand for the championship this year. I had the opportunity to train Carlsen in 2009, and his intuitive style conserves the mystique of chess at a time when every CPU-enhanced fan thinks the game is easy. Carlsen is as charismatic and independent as he is talented. If he can rekindle the world’s fascination with the royal game, we will soon be living in the Carlsen Era.

Malala Yousafzai

Activist, 15

By Chelsea Clinton April 18, 2013

People whose courage has been met by violence populate history. Few, though, are as young as Malala was when, at 15, a Taliban gunman boarded her school bus in northwestern Pakistan and shot her and two other girls, attempting to both kill Malala and, as the Taliban later said, teach a “lesson” to anyone who had the courage to stand up for education, freedom and self-determination, particularly for girls and women. Or as young as 11, when Malala began blogging for the BBC’s Urdu site, writing about her ambition to become a doctor, her fears of the Taliban and her determination to not allow the Taliban — or her fear — to prevent her from getting the education she needed to realize her dreams.

Malala is now where she wants to be: back in school. The Taliban almost made Malala a martyr; they succeeded in making her a symbol. The memoir she is writing to raise awareness about the 61 million children around the world who are not in school indicates she accepts that unasked-for responsibility as a synonym for courage and a champion for girls everywhere. However Malala concludes her book, her story so far is only just beginning.

Li Na

Tennis champion, 31

By Chris Evert April 18, 2013

Li Na is a maverick. Who else would stand up to the centralized Chinese sports system as Li did, back in 2008, when she pushed for more control over her career? Li persuaded the Chinese Tennis Association (CTA) to start the “fly alone” policy, which gives players more independence. Now they keep more of their money, giving just a fraction of their earnings to the CTA, compared with the bulk before. Rather than let the bureaucrats pick her coach, Li went with Jiang Shan, who is now her husband. Li has soared. She’s ranked fifth in the world and won the 2011 French Open, becoming the first Asian-born player to win a Grand Slam singles tournament.

Tennis has exploded in China. The country now has some 15 million tennis players; 116 million people watched Li win the French Open. That kind of exposure is crucial to our sport, and it never would have happened without Li. At tournaments, I’ve seen her charm the crowds. When she smiles, everyone melts. She’s such a breath of fresh air. And like Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova before her, Li Na has transcended her sport.

Kamala Harris

Jurist to watch, 48

By Nancy PelosiApril 18, 2013

As a child, Kamala accompanied her parents to civil rights marches in Oakland. She’s been making strides for justice — and breaking down barriers — ever since.

In 2010, after seven years as San Francisco district attorney, she became the first African American, first South Asian and first woman to be elected California attorney general.

She has expanded the smart-on-crime approach she pioneered as DA, taking dangerous guns off the street and targeting human trafficking.

She took on big banks to secure a bill of rights for California homeowners and up to $20 billion to help struggling families, and she has taken bold action to protect immigrant rights and consumer privacy.

The child who witnessed the civil rights movement from a stroller has taken a lead role in the fight for marriage equality by challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8.

As a new generation of women picks up the mantle of progress, she will always be among the first to stand up and step forward.

Peng Liyuan

China’s First Lady, 50

By Hannah BeechApril 18, 2013

Recent Chinese First Ladies have had one trait in common: anonymity. But Peng Liyuan, the stylish second wife of new leader Xi Jinping, isn’t shying away from the camera. During Xi’s first presidential trip abroad in March, she conducted a one-woman charm offensive across Russia and Africa, humanizing the communist regime.

Peng is used to the limelight. A folk singer in the People’s Liberation Army — yes, the Chinese military has cultural troupes — she was for decades far more famous than her husband. Now her clothes make headlines. While rich Chinese favor Western brands, Peng pointedly wore domestic labels on her tour. She’s bringing glamour to Made in China.

Пэн (http://www.atc.az/forum/showpost.php?p=479198&postcount=8) широко известна в Китае как певица, и долгое время была даже более известна в КНР, чем ее муж, ныне глава Китая, Си Цзиньпин.

Как всегда список для Западных журналов. Откуда Ли На может быть влиятельнее чем средний Европейский футболист?

Как всегда список для Западных журналов. Откуда Ли На может быть влиятельнее чем средний Европейский футболист?

Наверно, составители имели ввиду, что после успехов Ли На количество детей, начавших заниматься теннисом, в каждой китайской провинции начало превышать количество населения отдельно взятой европейской страны. )
