"Parasite", a new film about inequality in South Korea, won the the top prize at this year's Cannes film festival. It's also resonating with audiences at home.
Nearly two-thirds of young South Koreans believe they're unlikely to move up the social ladder. Six years ago it was less than half.

I remember saying (a long time ago... ok, yesterday) if people would just do what I say everything would be great!
Do you feel this way SOME of the time, MOST of the time or ALL of the time.
Come to find out, other people had good ideas too that were different from mine. And yes, the Enneagram helped me understand those differences as valuable. Isn’t that what we all really want...to be valued? ❤️
Where all the good politicians at? According to Gareth Evans (you know, the Cabinet Minister in the Hawke and Keating Labor Governments from 1983-96) there are 10 qualities that make a great leader (read the full list in the link in our bio). However, the most important quality is 💫the spark 💫 – the capacity, through sheer force of personality, to ignite enthusiasm, and on occasion real excitement, in one’s colleagues and the wider community.
Dunstan, Whitlam, Keating, Hawke, Thatcher, Blair, Clinton, Obama all had – at least at their peak – that infectious quality.
Happy Columbus Day! In California, this famous explorer has been all but erased from school textbooks. In high school, I learned more about his "genocidal acts" than I did about Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot's. A little biased, no? #calilogic#originalboogeyman
Today, President Trump signed an executive order causing the US to double steel tariffs on Turkey and would suspend negotiations for a $100 billion deal between the two countries. This comes after Turkey invaded the Kurd-populated northern Syria after US troops were pulled out.
I'll give some credit where it's due: this is a pretty decent response to stop the Turkish invasion. The response would've been better if it was quicker and implemented immediately after the Turks first started invading Syria.
While I would've gone further with the response i.e. freezing all aid to Turkey and reconsidering their NATO membership, this is still a decent start. However, the issue as I pointed out above is that Trump obviously didn't have a response ready immediately for what Turkey ended up doing. Either that or he was willing to let Erdoğan do whatever he wanted in northern Syria and merely buckled to mainstream media pressure. Either way, this doesn't reflect well on the President.
If you're going to pull troops out of a region as pivotal as Rojava, you must absolutely positively have a plan to stop the outcome that those troops were there to stop in the first place. His fake-pull-out was so shortsighted and cost many Kurdish lives, that is unacceptable
