North Korea’s Dangerous Game


Passing Through . . . .

The Korean Crisis: Kim’s Dangerous Game

Posted by Evan Osnos
kim-jong-un-generals-580.jpg

Because we do not generally associate the Russian political class with understatement, it was easy to miss Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov’s observation, this week, that things in North Korea could potentially “descend into the spiral of a vicious cycle.” If the Russians—who have vastly more knowledge of the new North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, than we do—are concerned that things are about to get worse, we should brace for a long spring.

The crisis on the Korean peninsula has descended so steadily, amid so many other hot zones competing for attention, and with such a sense of déjà vu about it, that it’s easy to lose sight of how North Korea’s threats to the United States and South Korea are now being made, as Scott Snyder of the Council on Foreign Relations put it, on “unprecedented levels and…

NORAH JONES Rosie´s Lullaby ( Live in Spain )


Uploaded on Jul 31, 2010

Live in Spain, ( 2007 )

She walked by the ocean,
And waited for a star,
To carry her away.

Feelin’ so small,
At the bottom of the world,
Lookin’ up to God.

She tries to take deep breaths,
To smell the salty sea,
As it moves over her feet.

The water pulls so strong,
And no-one is around,
And the moon is looking down.

Sayin’,
Rosie – come with me,
Close your eyes – and dream.

The big ships are rollin’,
And lightin’ up the night,
And she calls out, but they just her pass by.

The waves are crashin’,
But not making a sound,
Just mouthing along.

Sayin’,
Rosie – come with me,
Close your eyes and dream,
Close your eyes and dream,
Close your eyes and dream.

The Concept of Race (Before and after MONSANTO) with Richard Lewontin at UC Berkeley


[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvG1ylKhzoo]

Uploaded on Jan 31, 2008

In this Hitchcock Lecture from UC Berkeley, evolutionary geneticist Richard Lewontin reviews a number of studies on the genetic differentiation between individuals within local populations, of local populations within classic geographical races and between races. He shows that almost all human genetic variation is contained between individuals within any local population and that the consequences of repeated migrations, invasions, and mixture between groups destroys any clear racial boundaries.

North Korea has the deadliest level of Christian persecution in the world


Uploaded on Feb 7, 2012

The only worship that is allowed is that of the “dear leader” Kim Jong-Il and his father Kim Il-Sung. In North Korea, every other religious activity is labeled an act of insurrection against North Korean … (Rescue Christians.org)

Religious dissent has been always treated as an offence, political offence, by the oppressor, and aggressor alike. What happens nowadays to the Christians in Egypt, the persecution, slaughter of so many Christians? And Why?

Daily Prompt: Trading Places


I think, especially for those having only siblings of the same sex, or being only child, that is the most close to home desire we all had…Why? Because it is the most fundamental difference in our make, and that makes us so different: men are from Mars!

Of Glass & Paper

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a member of the opposite sex for a day? What do you think life would be like?

 You turn to me and says: “Are you OK?” – after a while I reply: “Yes, my clothes hang a bit lose, that’s all…”

You smile, you suggest I don’t go out just now.

“Try some of my clothes, don’t be shy!”  I am not sure, I like the look of me in the mirror, although I am far from being as attractive as her… I change, and look again. “Now” she says, “I will show you how to make up…”

But I don’t want to go out, even looking glamorous. What I want is for her to show me, what it really feels like, from her point of view…

Who Inspired “the Other” Rosa Parks?


Published on Mar 29, 2013

Watch the full 35-minute interview with Claudette Colvin on Democracy Now! at http://owl.li/jzCaV. Claudette Colvin was the first person arrested for resisting bus segregation in Montgomery, Alabama, in March 1955. Her refusal to give up her seat to a white person came nine months before Rosa Parks and helped spark the historic Montgomery Bus Boycott. It was her case before the U.S. Supreme Court that led to the desegregation of the Alabama bus system. Speaking to Democracy Now!, Colvin lists the African-American figures who inspired her historic, but overlooked, act of defiance.

Today’s Birthday: SAM WALTON (1918) the walmart guy


Sam Walton (1918)

Born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri during the Great Depression, Walton opened his first five-and-dime franchise in Arkansas in 1945. Seventeen years later, he opened his first Wal-Mart and began developing the Wal-Mart company into a national chain of massive, centrally controlled discount stores in small towns. By the time Walton died in 1992, his family was the wealthiest in the US, and Wal-Mart had become the country’s largest retailer. How was Walton forced out of his first store?More… Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: ROUTLEDGE EXPEDITION ARRIVES AT EASTER ISLAND (1914)


Routledge Expedition Arrives at Easter Island (1914)

Today known by its traditional name of Rapa Nui, Easter Island is one of the most remote inhabited locations on Earth. The first study of the island by outsiders was undertaken by British archaeologist Katherine Routledge, who spent 16 months on Rapa Nui studying its indigenous Polynesian culture. She interviewed residents and catalogued the island’s now-famous stone statues. Her scholarship proved to be invaluable to later researchers. Why did Routledge‘s husband eventually have her kidnapped? More… Discuss

CYBER ATTACK TO BLAME FOR SLOW SURFING


Cyber Attack to Blame for Slow Surfing

A massive cyber attack targeting a European spam-fighting groupdid more than just slow its target to a crawl. The unprecedentedDistributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, which involves flooding a target network with so many requests that regular traffic is either slowed or completely interrupted, actually slowed the entire Internet. At times, the data stream reached peaks of 300 Gbps(gigabits per second), a threefold increase from a 2010 DDos attack that previously held the distinction of being the largest of its kind in history. More… Discuss

NAOS


Naos

Though technically classified as a blue supergiant, Naos is not a particularly large star, with a radius only about 11 times larger than that of our Sun. It is, however, an exceptionally hot and bright star—one of the brightest in the Milky Way Galaxy. It is noted for its unusually fast rotation and extremely strong stellar wind. In fact, were Naos to take the place of the Sun at the center of our solar system, it would likely vaporize the Earth. How old is Naos estimated to be? More…Discuss
