She was just 13 in 1945 when she was forced to toil for months in a factory servicing the desperate last gasp of Japan’s war effort. Today, Kim Jeong-ju can point to many culprits to blame.There was the elementary school teacher who lied and told her going to Japan would mean better schooling and opportunities. The supervisors at the factory where she worked long hours with meager rations, where she had to stand atop two apple crates to reach the machinery. The multibillion-dollar corporation that profited off her labor to supply the Japanese military, and continues to thrive to this day.There’s the Japanese government, which colonized Korea in 1910 and conscripted hundreds of thousands of Koreans to serve its war effort at the height of World War II. The South Korean dictatorship that agreed to a $300-million settlement from Japan in 1965 but did nothing to compensate individual victims of forced labor, including Kim and her sister.“I was really, really hungry. We … [Read more...] about Japan, Korea and the messy question of how to pay for historic wrongs

Some believe it crashed into the Indian Ocean, but with the search cost reaching a whopping US$180 million, it was quickly suspended until researchers could offer a more refined search area. In April 2017, Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) said that its recent analysis of drift patterns suggested that the original search area may have been wrong. Dr. David Griffin, from CSIRO, informed a national marine conference in Darwin, Australia that the research has been refined further. "We think we know quite precisely where the plane is", Dr. Griffin said. However, even though the location has been refined, researchers will … [Read more...] about Australian Researches Think They ‘Know Quite Precisely’ Where Missing MH370 Lies

This article first appeared on the Dorf on Law site. As a college student in the early to mid-1980s, I knew Kris Kobach because we were on the debate team together. I'm a couple of years older than Kobach, but he started debating as a freshman, so I had two full seasons to get to know him. I recall him as smart and genial. He was conservative but in what at the time struck me as a middle American country-club Republican sort of way. I did not hear from Kobach again until the mid to late 1990s, when he was a junior faculty member at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He contacted me to talk about an academic paper he was working on. It was very much a scholarly rather than polemical exercise. We had a pleasant substantive exchange, which confirmed my earlier impression of Kobach. Thus, I was very surprised when, a few years later, Kobach emerged on the national political scene as the evil genius behind many of the state-level efforts to crack down on undocumented immigrants.
