Anti-Racist Strategies in Finnish Children's Literature: Physical Appearance and Language as Signifiers of National Belonging, Children's Literature in Education. This article examines anti-racist strategies employed in Finnish children's literature. The examples from four stories illustrate that certain physical characteristics and cultural markers can become strong signifiers of nationality, that is Finnishness. The characters in these stories have to cope with experiences of exclusion and loneliness before the people around them learn that difference and diversity do not change the fact that all humans are worth the same. However, the paper argues that the intended positive outcome of books with a strong anti-racist agenda threatens to be lost as heavily accentuated moral lessons often become counterproductive. The paper demonstrates some of the changes that have taken place in Finnish children's literature during the past two decades and addresses significant cultural and societal issues that affect children's everyday lives.   [More]  Descriptors: Foreign Countries, Childrens Literature, Racial Bias, Physical Characteristics Zembylas, Michalinos; Papamichael, Elena (2017).

  • Can Trump use military force against North Korea without Congressional approval?

    Breaking news on North Korea, and President Trumps' reaction.

    Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on President Trump’s promise to unleash ‘fire and fury’ on North Korea.

  • Trump’s change of heart on Syria isn’t reassuring, it’s profoundly disturbing
    David Shariatmadari The Guardian The response to a horrific crime is too important to be dictated by the president’s vanity, as seems to be the case – and the consequences could spin out of control Trump with King Abdullah II of Jordan on 5 April. ‘There are ominous rumblings … Mike Pence is now insisting that ‘all options are on the table’.’ Photograph: Michael Reynolds/EPA Thursday 6 April 2017 09.06 EDT Last modified on Thursday 6 April 2017 09.28 EDT ‘Iwill tell you that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me – big impact.” Those were the words of Donald Trump following the use of chemical weapons in Idlib province. With them, he sent the diplomatic world into a spin: had the president changed his mind on one of the most urgent foreign policy issues of our times? As far as it’s ever possible to discern method in his madness, Trump’s attitude towards the war in Syria has been relatively straightforward. Destroying Isis is the priority, he has stated time and again, and if that means in bolstering Assad as a side-effect, so be it. This has been the logic of his benign attitude towards Russia, too: Vladimir Putin is a Christian leader willing to use hard power against jihadist Islam, so he’s one of the good guys. Also, Iraq was a mess, and no one wants to start World War Three. Or, as he memorably put it back in November, “I had to listen to [Republican Senator] Lindsey Graham talk about, you know, attacking Syria and attacking, you know, and it’s like you’re now attacking Russia, you’re attacking Iran, you’re attacking.” More: www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/06/donald-trump-conscience-syria-terrifying …

2017-03-30 Update: Sustainability and the Commons Access the live feed at /sustainability-and-the-commons-news-feed/ The commons fight against big oil. Standing Rock. A small but mighty blow was dealt last week to the big oil industry. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe had protested for months against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. A multi-billion pipeline of 1,200 miles that crosses four state was intended to slash the cost of crude transport. A section of the pipeline was planned to run right under Lake Oahe, a reservoir on the Missouri river. The Local standing rock Sioux tribe and thousands of Native Americans have protested the oil pipeline project as they believe the project threatens sacred native lands and has a great chance of contaminating local water supply from the Missouri river (the longest river in North America). Going by the name protectors", these activists are adamant that the pipeline poses a similar threat surrounding area. Also, the tribal leaders say the initial decision by the US army corps of engineers for the pipeline to run within half a mile of the local reservation was done without consultation of tribal governments and a thorough impact study. The pipeline project clearly violates federal law and native treaties. The news of the permit not been granted for the Dakota Access Pipeline is a major win not just for environmental activists but also native American rights. It is interesting to notice how there was little to no coverage of the protest on mainstream media. It took the arrest of Shailene Woodley (celebrity) whom was protesting the North Dakota oil pipeline to bring in any mainstream media attention. Also, credit has to be given to online news network TYT and their political reporter Jordan Chariton for bringing attention to the water protector's peaceful protest. One reason for the mainstream media blackout is down to the non stop reporting of the 2016 American presidential election which saw Donald Trump win against Hillary Clinton. While the victory at standing ro …
