The Nobel Literature Prize Sexual Assault Scandal, Explained

While it right now is the time of the year when the Nobel prize winners are announced, it seems to be quiet about one particular prize: the literature one. For the first time in almost 70 years, there won’t be any Nobel literature laureate; instead, two people will be awarded the prize in 2019 instead of one. It’s all due to a crisis within the academy that awards the prize, caused by a massive corruption and

Is the Israeli Prime Minister Afraid of Carpet Laundries?

In an address to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 27, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered an Iranophobic speech, in which he accused Iran of having a “secret atomic warehouse,” alongside other allegations. To quote, “Today I’m revealing the site of a second facility: Iran’s secret atomic warehouse. It’s right here, in the Turkuzahbad Distrcit of Tehran. Just three miles away. Let me show you exactly what the secret atomic warehouse looks like. Here it

Why Are Indonesian Not Interested In Reading?

Indonesia’s citizens need to step up their game on reading interest. There are many reasons why this needs to happen. Indonesian, mostly kids to teens, have little interest in literature. Indonesians are also more interested in their phones than their books. According to Central Connecticut State University‘s rank of World’s Most Literate Nations in 2016, Indonesia ranked 60 out of 61 countries, with Finland sitting at the top of the list and Botswana right below Indonesia.

Tanzania’s Presidents Tells Citizens To Throw Away All Forms of Birth Control

Last Sunday, September 9th, Tanzania’s President John Magufuli was speaking at a public rally in Meatu when he said: “I see no reason to control births in Tanzania”. He then continued to explain that because education is now free, women could “throw away their contraceptives”. This is very surprising since the country has such high levels of HIV and other STDs. Magufuli, who started off his presidency strong and loved by the people has now

The Plight of the Shi’a Minority In Saudi Arabia

With the commencement of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic Calendar that is mourned by most Muslims as a month in which the historic Battle of Karbala took place, Shi’as, their Muharram-related rituals and gatherings, along with harsh responses they receive for those have once again become quite a hot potato. And obviously, if you are to talk about Shi’as and the discrimination, hate and persecution they face at the hands of extremists, you

I Visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki And It Was Eye Opening

This summer, I had gotten the opportunity to take a month to travel throughout the country of the rising sun, Japan, on a school trip. From the hustle and bustle of neon Tokyo to the tranquil and peaceful mountainside of Hakone, I had a fantastic time exploring the culture and devouring the delicious food (read: ramen). However, I was also there for educational purposes, so inevitably, I had to visit the site of possibly one of

For Your Back-To-School List: Fairtrade Purchases And Ethics Education

Amidst end-of-summer insanity, it can be easy to lose ourselves in preparations for the year ahead. Between work and school, there never seems to be enough time to get everything done and accomplish what we had hoped. However busy autumn gets, we can’t lose sight of the things that are most important. Passion, love, family. The people in our lives, and the people that do things for us that we don’t ever see. Namely, third

The US Is Killing Innocent People In Yemen

In an unsurprising turn of events, it was discovered that the United States sold the bomb that hit a school bus in Yemen to Saudi Arabia just last week. The Saudi coalition-led attack, supported by the U.S., resulted in the deaths of over 50 people, 40 of whom were children. An even greater number of injuries were reported as well; of the 79 total injuries, 56 were children. The majority of these children were under

Senator Anning’s Racist “Final Solution” And The State Of Immigration In Australia

Over 40 years after the legal disbandment of the “White Australia policy,” the talk of racial purity when it comes to immigration is making its way into the sphere of politics once again. It’s no surprise that immigration in most every country, even if not explicitly stated, has been about limiting the number of non-white foreigners, and deporting almost exclusively undocumented immigrants of color. The White Australia policy, first called the Immigration Restriction Act, was
