Mad Max: Fury Road has already begun its hellbent descent on digital download platforms, and will arrive at the Valhalla of home video next week. But there’s no denying that out of all the films this summer, none have inspired as big or creative a fanbase as Mad Max: Fury Road. Search this site for

This ridiculous situation of false accusations was big in Jakarta news a few years ago but remains absolutely crazy:
"The most outrageous information I learned from the interviews was that while employed by ISS, Zainal, as well as the late Azwar, worked on the JIS Cilandak (Middle and High School) campus, and not on the Pondok Indah campus where the alleged assaults occurred. When I asked the difficult question as to why he had confessed to the charges, he replied, “I was tortured until I couldn’t bear it anymore. I didn’t want to die.” He broke down and signed the papers with which the police presented him, even though he didn’t know what sodomy, the crime to which he was forced to confess, meant."

I'm not sure immigration rules make sense. Sure, the recent waves of Chinese and Indians are definitely upper-echelon. But the first-wave immigrants, especially people like my grandmother, were dirt poor and escaping pretty terrible conditions. Most worked restaurants or the "Chinese laundry" from the stereotypes.

And as a result of relentless pressure for education trumps all, the "ethnic capital" was formed that is now taken advantage of by both new highly educated immigrants and Asian-Americans who made it to the middle-class. That capital was nurtured by a strong community and huge importance on sharing information (communal culture), especially about optimizing schooling.

As for citizenship, definitely plays a major factor.

When the bipartisan advocacy group United Against Nuclear Iran decided last week to mobilize opposition against the nuclear deal with Tehran, Gary Samore knew he could no longer serve as its president.
