Buddhist extremism persecuting Muslims. Yes, that's a real thing in Myanmar.
Concerns grow that Buddhist extremism may flourish unless country’s new democratic leaders counter discrimination against minorities

Mr. Denton wondered if someone in Silicon Valley was bankrolling Mr. Bollea’s legal case. That’s not illegal, but it is troubling to people who worry that it is a way for the wealthy to secretly promote an agenda or punish their enemies.
Peter Thiel’s role in backing the lawsuit against Gawker may have consequences for the rest of the media covering the billionaires of Silicon Valley.

When in Switzerland, do as the Swiss do.

A controversial exemption from the tradition had been granted for two teenage brothers whose interpretation of the Koran meant they were unwilling to touch a member of the opposite sex. The regional authority said teachers "had the right" to demand handshakes. Shaking teachers' hands as a sign of respect is a longstanding tradition in Switzerland.

I am told that it is unfair to speak in such harsh terms of a person I don’t know personally: Look how nice his kids seem to be. Look at all his friends who say that he’s really a pleasant fellow in private. Sorry. I don’t need any secondary sources. Donald Trump makes the case for David Brooks’s assessment in every public appearance. When a man deliberately inflames the antagonism of one American ethnic group toward another, takes pleasure in labeling people “losers,” and openly promises to use the powers of the presidency to punish people who get in his way, there is nothing that person can do or say in private that should alter my opinion of whether he is fit to be the president of the United States.
What are conservatives and libertarians to make of this November’s choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump?

And the saddest part of the story is that regardless of what Mr. Trump says, they will not win again. They've been told this lie before, and I'm sure they know deep-down that it's a lie yet again, but they have nothing else to cling to. Their jobs are not coming back; nobody can bring them back, not even Trump. Their only option is to transition into a different discipline, but the local governments are not providing the necessary training for them.

“If there were winners or losers in America in this century, they were the losers,” he said. “You’re talking to people who haven’t won in 30 years, and now somebody is telling them they’re going to win again.”
In a moment riddled with economic and social worries, an e-cigarette shop in Wilkes County, N.C., is an oasis for some young Appalachians.

Why is article out now? This is not a new feature.
Regularly locking your phone’s screen can be an annoyance. So much so that a third of Android users don’t even lock their phones at all, and those that do choose painfully obvious PINs or patterns. Fortunately, there’s a better way: It’s called Smart Lock for Android.

This is very true.

Obama said the American presidential election is being "very" closely watched oversees. He told reporters that "it's fair to say" world leaders are "surprised" Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee.
President Barack Obama addressed Donald Trump's candidacy in remarks Thursday from Japan.

It would be possible to justify support for Trump if he merely promised a period of chaos for conservatism. But to support Trump for the presidency is to invite chaos upon the republic and the world. No policy goal, no court appointment, can justify such recklessness.
Conservatives tempted to support the Republican ticket should think again.

The difficulty Hollywood is having with Asian actors nowadays makes Gene Roddenberry's original Star Trek all the more impressive. The great George Takei's role as Mr. Sulu was the perfect way to have an Asian actor in the show.
Actors like Daniel Dae Kim, Constance Wu, BD Wong and Aziz Ansari have become frank critics of their industry, calling out Hollywood for “whitewashing.”

I never gave much thought about the positivity in Overwatch, but reading this article made me think about it more. The game doesn't even use the word "kill," instead opting for "elimination."

Everyone is welcome, everyone is encouraged to do their best.
Blizzard's latest game strikes me as a profound new step for online competitive shooters, one that strives to engender positive feelings all around.

Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

Pasta and pizza sections are separate. I went to the pasta place, but the food was mediocre. One of the pasta dishes was too salty. The cocktail was unsatisfactory. The music did not feel appropriate for the environment; I like Oasis and Coldplay, but their music doesn't quite fit a moody Italian restaurant.

Delicious dumplings here! You'll need to order your food on a menu form. Credit cards are accepted, and there's extra charge for water. I found there's usually a wait during peak hours.

It's the famous Korean pork belly (samgyupsal), but with a secret sweet and spicy seasoning. It's so good I couldn't stop eating. Have the meat with the complimentary salad, and its vinegary taste will blend with the seasoning to form something even better. If you still want something spicy, have a bowl of makguksoo, cold buckwheat noodles, afterwards. It'll wash down the meat nicely. The raw, seasoned meat can also be ordered to go, so you can grill them yourself at home!

Kopi O Kosong (black coffee) was delicious. Served in a traditional thick-rimmed porcelain coffee cup, the Singapore coffee at Nanyang Old Coffee is cheap, yet rich in flavor. I also had the kopi (coffee with condensed milk), which I think is how it's most frequently consumed, and it was also very good.

I don't think I've ever said this about a mall before, but Destiny USA is a quality mall. It's well maintained, has a good blend of everything, and most importantly, not boring. There are actually fun activities available in the midst of stores, so that the visit isn't simply a shopping experience, but an entertaining experience.
