North Korea: Daily Cupcake

In Articles, History, Humanity, Politics on November 24, 2010 at 7:57 pm

Recently I saw a couple of very interesting documentaries concerning the North Korean crisis.  At Starbucks this morning I noticed the Wall Street Journal Headline with regards to the recent attack.  Here is an interesting NPR article.  Also, below are the two documentaries, which are available on netflix.  The second one gives a chronological historical outline, which is very helpful in understanding the North Korean crisis and its inception.

The Problem With Politics: It’s All in the Language: Daily Cupcake

Politics.

For me, the problem has always been in the language, which is interesting given my area of academic focus deals exclusively with language and its usages.  However,  literary theoretical discourse does differ quite drastically from that of political discourse in my defense (although the two do overlap in some instances).  So, I will continue to struggle as will you, most likely.  Unless of course you’re working on your PhD in political science.  Geesh, I wish.

Here’s an interesting article on language and politics and if you’re like me (in need of political assistance) you might want to visit this webpage, which has a wealth of information as well.  Of course, you’ll still have to discern for yourself (biases still exist)–if you can.

Daily Cupcake: What? Not Jewish Enough?

It’s quite odd, during the Holocaust many struggled with the idea of being, well, “too Jewish,” or rather Jewish at all.  Lives were literally lost over Jewishness, whether you looked it, acted it, etc.

Well, now there seems to be a new crisis.  Now, we’re dealing with the issue of being “not Jewish enough,” put quite simply.

Check this out.

This post is dedicated to all of those who experienced, survived, or were lost in the horrific Holocaust.  If this is a historical event that interests you I highly recommend the two part comic narrative Maus.

God Bless.
