    Women working for the BBC have complained they were paid less than men in equivalent jobs and have accused managers of misleading them about their pay to hide widespread gender discrimination at the public broadcaster.


    The complaints by BBC Women Cheap Washington Wizards Hats , a group of 170 staff, were sent to parliament's media committee, which is investigating BBC pay after the corporation was forced to disclose last July that two- thirds of on-air high earners were men and that some were paid far more than female peers.


    The revelations caused a spate of bad headlines for the BBC and angered many female staff, who demanded equal pay for equal work. The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has lodged a collective grievance to the BBC on behalf of 121 women.


    "While individual BBC managers have been supportive, there is still a bunker mentality in some quarters and women have experienced veiled threats made against them when they raised the subject of equal pay," BBC Women said in written evidence to parliament's media committee.


    The lawmakers are due to hear oral evidence on Wednesday from Carrie Gracie Cheap Washington Wizards Hoodies , the BBC's former China editor, who quit this month in protest over being paid less than her male peers .


    Senior BBC managers, including Director-General Tony Hall, are due to appear before the committee just after Gracie .


    Funded by a licence fee levied on TV viewers and reaching 95 percent of British adults every week, the BBC is a pillar of the nation's life, but as such it is closely scrutinised and held to exacting standards by the public and by rival media.


    The BBC said in response to the evidence submitted by BBC Women and the NUJ that it was committed to equal pay and did not accept the assertion that it had not been complying with equality laws.


    In the wake of Gracie's resignation and the public debate it sparked Cheap Washington Wizards Shirts , six of the BBC's best-known male presenters and journalists agreed to take pay cuts. That was widely welcomed, but campaigners for equal pay said it did not solve the underlying issues.


    BBC Women said gender pay discrimination affected every part of the organisation, not just high earners.


    The group provided 14 individual examples of women in a range of roles as TV and radio presenters and reporters, all of whom described frustrating battles with managers after discovering they were paid less than their male counterparts.


    "I have co-presented with a male colleague for many years ... I estimate he's paid around double what I earn for doing the same job," said one of the unnamed women in a typical submission. "I raised the equal pay issue many times over the years, but nothing was done."

    WUHAN Cheap Washington Wizards Jerseys , Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- China's Three Gorges Reservoir raised its discharge volume starting Monday to increase the power supply to downstream provinces.


    At 2 p.m. Tuesday, the reservoir's storage flow was recorded at 8,100 cubic meters per second, while outbound flow was 8,110 cubic meters per second, according to the Yangtze River Water Resources Committee.


    The daily average outbound flow has increased to 9 Cheap Jodie Meeks Jersey ,520 cubic meters per second.


    Due to continuous cold weather, central China's Hubei Province, east China's Anhui Province and Jiangxi Province have experienced power shortages.


    The Yangtze river flood control office asked the Three Gorges Reservoir to increase its discharge volume starting Monday to ensure the power supply of the downstream provinces.


    The increased outbound flow will be maintained through February 3 to 5.


    The water storage in the upper reaches of the Three Gorges Reservoir is up 10 percent year on year, according to the Yangtze River Water Resources Committee.




    Beyond China few may have heard of OPPO or Vivo, but these local handset vendors are rising up the rankings in the world's largest smartphone market, using local marketing savvy and strong retail networks in lower-tier cities.


    Industry experts say these cities - there are more than 600 of them and some are bigger than many European capitals - are the next smartphone battlefield as China's major cities are saturated.


    International brands such as Apple (AAPL.O) and Samsung Electronics (005930.KS) have mostly not yet reached this part of the market - which accounts for more than 56 percent of China's overall consumption Cheap Ian Mahinmi Jersey , according to Beijing All China Marketing Research.


    In an economy growing at its slowest pace in a quarter of a century, buyers in these smaller cities - with populations of up to 3 million - tend towards cheaper phones, which is good news for Guangzhou-based OPPO and Vivo, as well as Meizu Technology Co, an affiliate of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (BABA.N).


    "OPPO and Vivo have already overtaken Samsung and ZTE Corp (000063.SZ) in China, and are working to chase down the big three of Huawei [HWT.UL] Cheap Otto Porter Jersey , Xiaomi [XTC.UL] and Apple in 2016," said Strategy Analytics analyst Neil Mawston.

    To be sure, these lower-priced newcomers lack the firepower of the premium brands, and operate on razor-thin margins or at losses. They need mass volume sales to keep going, the industry experts said.


    OPPO sold 10.8 million smartphones Cheap Jason Smith Jersey , giving it a 9 percent market share and a top-5 ranking, in the fourth quarter of last year, according to Strategy Analytics - even as the overall China market slipped 4 percent.


    OPPO's R7 smartphone, priced at 1,999 yuan ($304), touts itself as a "selfie expert" Cheap Marcin Gortat Jersey , with a bigger screen than the iPhone 6S and competitive camera resolution.


    Vivo ranked fourth with 10 percent market share, below Apple's 13 percent.


    The growth among these younger vendors comes as Apple, Xiaomi and others struggle to maintain momentum in a market swamped with smartphones and fading economic growth.


    Analysts say the newcomers run eye-catching marketing gimmicks, including sponsors. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Shirts Cheap Hoodies Cheap Hats Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NFL Hoodies China Cheap NFL Hoodies China Wholesale NBA Hats
