Six years ago, East Timor was in the headlines for weeks when the Indonesians and their local allies went on the rampage as the country voted for independence from Indonesia in a UN run poll. The UN ran the country for a few years then helped the Timorese set up their own insitutions the idea was to help them stand on their own feet. This now seems to be unravelling..
The militia commander with the dazzling smile leads us through the desert towards the oilfields, his Toyota pick up truck throwing up a cloud of exhaust and dust. Looming on the horizon are the steeply sloping mountain ridges surrounding the Owbari Valley. Overhead the midday sun is glaring down on the dunes, a sea of golden desert in what was once the ancient Roman province of Fezzan..
To them I just another new rich from China. I not staying that Japan or other Asian countries are racist, I stating that they have a different system and viewpoint of the world, and are very nationalist. Not in an offensive way, just that it different from the western viewpoint..
Here’s a worst case scenario for you: You’ve been separated from your day hiking group late on a chilly fall afternoon and find yourself alone in the woods. You have no tent or sleeping bag, and night falls fast deep in the forest. You call out and hear nothing but the cold wind.
I am blessed to live near the beach in sunny Southern California. There’s something about that ocean and salty air that makes the seven miles suck less. My running addiction has left me with some pretty gnarly scars on my knees but hey, when you run nearly 50 miles a week a few tumbles are bound to happen..
However, while grades are helpful to those that want a quick and clean summary of your academic performance. I can emphasize enough (it took me years to figure this out), but that F is only a summary at best. Just compare any CliffNotes summary of a Shakespearean play and compare it with the real deal and you notice that the summary only takes a superficial look into the beauty of the work.
I pretty moderate on this issue where I think if you an illegal immigrant with kids in America, you should be able to stay here. The cost of deporting the parent far outweighs any propaganda that Fox news spews out.I was just wondering if this also applies to marriage fraud where “legal” immigrants from Vietnam / China come here, then divorce for a green card or company H1B visa abuse where they hire immigrants to replace American workers to pay less and remain profitable. That where I don really support this rally.
