According to a study by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport released yesterday, as of the end of last year, nearly 92 percent of people lived in cities, whether it was Seoul, Busan or Gwangju."

Closer View of Indian Education
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jul 21, 2014, 09:22 PM

The Indian education system sounds remarkably similar to the Chinese education system. Students focus on memorizing to succeed in taking tests.

The UN Post reports that, "The current observation is that most of the educators don’t add any value to students. On the other hand, it is the students who add value to educators by working very hard for exams to pass out with scores and grades from Indian educational institutions. Even in some of the prestigious educational institutions like IITs and IIMs in India, it is the students who slog hard to achieve the scores rather than educators who are supposed to be responsible for students’ academic success. What are the causes for the present scenario? What is the solution for this problem? Let us find out."

UN Provides Polygamy Benefits for Staff
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Jul 21, 2014, 08:40 PM

The United Nations not only offers diplomatic immunity for same sex spouses of staff, but the global organization also provides financial rewards for polygamists.

According to the UN Post, "For instance, take the UN Declaration of Human Rights, CEDAW and the public stand of the UN which condemns polygamy and considers it an attack on the dignity and human rights of women, as well as a harmful practice in UN human rights standards; where millions of dollars have been spent by the UN and its specialized agencies on programmes and campaigns to alleviate and stop this practice, yet UN senior staff at the highest levels practice polygamy, and the organization pays benefits for polygamist staff families and awards these staff. Worst of all is the conflict between the organization declarations and statements and its own practices."
