Better lives for North Korean women
I served as a judge for an English speech contest for North Korean defectors Saturday. The event gave me a rare opportunity to have a better understanding of womens lives in the North. Seven defectors, five women and two men, delivered speeches u..

The unprecedentedly strong tsunami and the resultant meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear reactors on March 11, 2011, caught me by surprise. More stunning were the responses of the Japanese. Putting aside their nuclear contamination woes, they refused..
