The news of Kim Jong-Il's death from Pyongyang leads to a coup in North Korea. While the hawks in the North Korean military push the Korean peninsula to the brink of an all-out nuclear war, Park, an assistant secretary at Blue House and the President's nephew in Seoul, finds himself at the very crux of international power game surrounding the peninsula. With his pregnant wife held as hostage in North Korea, Park has to play his own game of confidence and tricks - It's a showdown with a nuclear war at stake.
Bobby Vee got blasted into rock 'n' roll under the worst circumstances imaginable. He and his new band filled in for Buddy Holly on Feb. 4, 1959, the night after Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper died in a plane crash. "The show should have been cancelled," Vee...
Along with the Haymarket and Sacco and Vanzetti trials, the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during the McCarthy-era stands as among the gravest miscarriages of justice in American history. In the last few months, the Rosenberg family has amassed over 13,000 signatures (http://www.rfc.org/ethel) calling on President Obama to...

Lincoln Center Theater and Playwrights Horizons, two of New York's prime non-profits with well-earned reputations for quality plus numerous award-winners between them, both have intimate houses upstairs with small-for-off-Broadway capacities (under 130 seats). The Claire Tow (LCT3) and Peter Jay Sharp (PH) Theaters are often used for adventurous-but-chancy fare, with...
Girls are brave. Some men know this. I think many do not, because they cannot share the same reality. Most try. Girls are brave. We know from such an early age - before kindergarten probably - that in general.
In the first instance, it is time to act in a way that treats victims and survivors of domestic violence as worthy of something more than a minimal slap on the wrist handed out to their abuser. Are you in need of solutions? Because we've got some...
In 15 days, you will be able to cast a ballot. I beg you to care about something that connects you to November 8th. Because when people stop caring, the world falls. And millions vanish. Never again should anyone's existence or return be undesired.
I'm fully aware that Taylor Swift is held to a different standard due to her being a woman. But that is not an excuse for her to behave in the way that she does just because she claims to support gender equality.
Returning to Michelle Obama and the scenario that I am outlining, her strongest argument will be the continuation of her husband's legacy. Of course, anyone can understand that she will have the de facto support of certain social groups as the Afro-American community and women. But most of all, she will have something that Hillary lacks: reliability and trustworthiness.
When you feel you are under the control of an unfriendly system, check your values, check your sense of personal power meter. Check your complicity levels. Compare the consistency of your values with the actions it takes to participate in the system and achieve your goals.. The ends never justify the means because they are inseparable.
The circumstances for the survival of our species have never been more difficult. Would the man made sixth extinction be reversed or should we quietly accept our destiny on the hands of men? On November 8th I will give the other half of humanity the chance to begin to fix man's shortcomings and restore our existential balance.
Nick and I think Fifty years is a reasonable request for the FDA's future regulations of sperm bank record retention, and if I were a parent seeking "super smart" sperm, I would want my future child to have all the knowledge and empowerment available to help them to be a happy and productive member of society.
In Genesis God tells us to take care of His creation. Everything on this Earth is life and should be treated and cried out for as we cry out for those unborn children. We can't just pick and choose what's the most convenient.
Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had a mixed week in the polls. Some states strengthened for both candidates, and some states weakened. For the most part, though, the race remained essentially unchanged.

The lockdown on 3rd Party candidates and Democracy is further exemplified by the concession of the Presidential debates by the League of Women Voters to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Since ancient times women have strived to look beautiful and have used different methods for enhancing one's natural look trying to adhere to the existing norms of beauty. And since there's a correlation between physical attractiveness and confidence, it wouldn't hurt to use some makeup or to accept some contemporary norms of 'beauty', especially if it affects a person's behavior in a positive way.
They were last night as I walked in to a Planned Parenthood discussion on "A Celebration of Faith and Reproductive Health." They're always there, the voices to protect the unborn.
The people are not going to hold for much longer. As the clock ticks, every hour, every minute, every second, the rage builds up, over and over, higher and higher, more and more. And by the time this volcano erupts, it will be too late to save anything in the country.
Ultimately, there is no grand conspiracy or single cause driving the low resettlement numbers of Syrian Christian refugees. But that does not mean there is nothing to be done to ensure that all potential refugee populations have access to resettlement programs.
