What do the people of North Korea really think? Does the West give them a bad press? This report tries to find out.
In my sole text post on this site, I want to just say how much I miss being able to watch Al Jazeera English. Tons of links on this site are now unwatchable for me and other US residents, as well as my students. I’ve built several excellent Al Jazeera news reports into my own classes, and now the hunt is on to replace them.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect a video on the Internet to last forever.
I just miss Al Jazeera.

If I were a boy
Even just for a day
I’d roll outta bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted and go
Drink beer with the guys
And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it
Cause they’d stick up for me

After being banned in French schools, religious symbols could now be banned in universities. France’s High Council for Integration is calling for students to remove their headscarves, skullcaps and crucifixes in a bid to reduce tensions that some say are compromising the country’s secular values. The Muslim community has seen the proposals as an attack on their religious freedom.
