The team at Hopper has put together this list of the 10 longest non-stop flights from New York City; the ones that take passengers further afield than anywhere else, from the bubbling bazaars of Indian Mumbai, to the seething streets of China's megacities.
I grew up in a very traditional household where authority was nearly absolute and we had to listen to orders and follow them almost blindly -- especially my two other sisters and myself since we were women.
If China will publicly stress the importance of good governance as an essential component of making the development process work, the AIIB has a chance of being successful, and may work well in generating significantly more financial resources for the region.
With the conclusion of the Pope's visit on Monday, we would do well to remember those in North Korea who to this day suffer religious persecution in silence.
The claims put forward by advocates of Common Core and its attendant standardized testing regime are just not true, at least according to the latest research on how the human brain operates and how people learn.
So next time you are traveling through Asia make sure you stop by Seoul -- it's a cultural awakening and an amazing experience.
President Obama recently designated July 27 as "Korean War Veteran's Armistice Day." In the days since, I have found myself reflecting on the meaning of the Armistice and on the effect it has had on my country in the intervening 60 years. Three key words emerge in my reflection.
We have heard again and again that we are losing "the global competition" to nations like South Korea where students and parents take tests very seriously. But are test scores worth it?
When it comes to charity work, I often tell my daughter that life shouldn't be lived for how much money, power or fame you get but the difference you can make in life.
The past six months have seen an incredible ratcheting up of tensions in the East and South China Seas, where the world's three largest economies are caught up in an increasingly tangled web of territorial disputes, competing alliances, and historical grievances.
How unusual has the weather been? No one event is "caused" by climate change, but global warming, which is predicted to increase unusual, extreme weather, is having a daily effect on weather, worldwide.
I met South Korean photographer Youngho Kang at the LensCulture FotoFest Paris portfolio review event in 2013. Kang is not shy in front of the camera. In each image, he's playing a part in a story that only he could tell.
Those who are wary of the honeymoon between Korea and China say that the current bilateral relationship is like a big snake wrapped around a rabbit. It is an awful comparison. But if we are overly carried away by the closest relationship with China since Korea tied a diplomatic knot with the superpower in 1992 and fall into Xi's dream of regaining the glory of the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing Dynasty -- who controlled Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mongolia and other islands of the East and South China Seas -- then inter-Korean relations, Korea-U.S. ties and Korea-Japan relations will cross a bridge of no return.
The wind appears to again be at Dilma Rousseff's back again, as Brazil's performance at the World Cup has virtually assured that she will be re-elected -- politics working as politics do.
China's continuous rise and China's active strategic engagement with South Korea are increasingly challenging the basis of the U.S.-Japan-South Korea cooperative triangle in Northeast Asia.
