    Korean CONSTITUTION DAY Words with Jae

    Hi everyone. Welcome back to Weekly Words Holiday Edition. I am Jaehwi. The holiday for this video is Constitution Day. Let’s see what we have. 제헌절 (jeheonjeol) “Constitution Day.” So with that word, you can say 제헌절은 7월 17일입니다. (Jeheonjeoreun chirwol sipchiririmnida.) which means “Constitution Day is on July 17.” 국회의사당 (gukhoeuisadang) “National Assembly Building.” 국회의사당 (gukhoeuisadang) National Assembly Building. So with that word, you can say 제헌절 행사가 국회의사당 앞에서 열리고 있습니다. (Jeheonjeol haengsaga gukhoeuisadang apeseo yeolligo itsseumnida.) which means “The Constitution Day event is held in front of the National Assembly Building.” So you can find this building in the island called 여의도 (yeouido) which is at the…

    The Kids Are Not All Right: College Mental Health Needs an Intervention

    There’s no legal requirement for schools to provide health or mental health services to their students. Colleges do it because it’s the right thing to do and because it’s prudent. I think there’s a growing understanding and it’s something that we at the Jed Foundation are trying to really make schools aware of that it’s in the school’s and the student’s best interest to provide a really broad array of support services to their students. The more we can keep students on track doing well in school and getting to the graduation line, the better it is for everybody involved. One of the big challenges in providing services is that…

    So, What Is a Universal Basic Income? – The Jim Jefferies Show

    THERE ARE ROUGHLY 40 MILLION AMERICANS LIVING IN POVERTY. THANKS TO DONALD TRUMP, THAT’S ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE. THE ADMINISTRATION IS CONSIDERING CHANGING THE DEFINITION OF POVERTY SO FEWER FAMILIES WILL QUALIFY FOR GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE. SO PROBLEM SOLVED. I GUESS THAT’S ONE WAY TO DEAL WITH POVERTY, JUST SAY IT’S NOT POVERTY. THAT’S LIKE, IF YOU HAD STAGE CANCER AND THE DOCTOR SAID NO, THAT’S JUST A PANCREAS BRUISE, PUT SOME ICE ON IT. IT’S A PRETTY SIMPLE IDEA.>>THE PROBLEM WITH POVERTY IS NOT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY. THE SIMPLE SOLUTION WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY IS TO GIVE THEM MONEY. SO THAT’S MORE OR UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME.>>IT’S A MONTHLY…

    How Rebel Victories Stop Civil Wars While Foreign Intervention Prolongs Them | Monica Duffy Toft

    So when one country intervenes in another country’s civil war, one of the things that happens is: it extends the war. And if you think about it, what’s happening is that you’re having more resources coming into that conflict; and it’s bringing in new resources, bringing in new interests, basically complicating and complexifying that war that was already a very complex war. There are ways in which intervention might be good, which is you’re trying to pull the parties apart, not trying to pick sides—one side picking the other side—and that can sort of stop the killing, but typically before that happens if outside states are getting involved in a…

    The oil wars: How America’s energy obsession wrecked the Middle East | Eugene Gholz

    So for a long time oil has played a special role in American foreign policy and military strategy. Oil is a uniquely important commodity in global affairs. It’s an input to everything in our modern way of life; it’s very important for protecting our prosperity; and at a certain level oil is essential for high-quality military power: to fight you need access to oil. And in the Cold War the United States was concerned that the Soviet Union could interrupt American access to Persian Gulf oil, which we needed in order to defend Europe, defend our own interests against the Soviet Union. And so we took it on as a…

    It’s Not Just You, Science Says Music Has Universal Meaning for Everyone

    The human race may be more unified by music than we think. What if… across the world, specific patterns, frequencies and rhythms tie to specific human emotions and applications? What if music, is… universal? There is a cross-cultural connection and relation when it comes to music, where people of all different backgrounds might have the same opinions on specific musical notes and songs. At Harvard University a researcher did a study of 750 internet users in over 60 countries and had them listen to portions of songs that were collected from 86 different small societies around the world. They then answered questions on what they heard. Each multiple choice option…

    How the Confederate Flags Came Down at the University of Mississippi | Harold Burson

    I went to college at Ole Miss, the University of Mississippi, and I got a telephone call from the chancellor one day and he said, “Harold, I have got to get the flags—the confederate flags—off the campus.” And I said, “Robert, I think you’re smoking pot.” And he said, “No I’m not kidding you,” he said, “we’ve got to do it.” And I said, “Why have we got to do it?” And he said, “You know, I’ve been here for one year, I expect to be here for nine more, and I want my legacy to be that I made this a great public university.” And he said, “As long…

    Language Acquisition and Universal Grammar

    So let’s talk about babies. Very cute, right? It’s hard to look at a baby smiling at you and not feel good. But even the most devoted parents don’t generally think of their baby as a cognitive powerhouse. But babies figure out how language works like little geniuses. They’re just born that way. I’m Moti Lieberman, and this is the Ling Space. Language is special. People can do a lot of amazing things – ride a unicycle, learn long division, walk on the moon. But maybe the most amazing thing that human beings do is language. Don’t believe me? Just wait. So the most important idea for today’s episode is…
