In the capital of the Marshall Islands, Lem Eyo, 75, listens to a speech on Nuclear Victims Remembrance Day, observed March 2 this year—61 years and one day after the #CastleBravo test, a U.S. nuclear explosion in Bikini Atoll that was 1,000 times more powerful than the war-time bomb dropped on Hiroshima. At the time of the test, Eyo was living 100 miles to the east, on Rongelap Atoll, which bore the brunt of radioactive fallout. Eyo’s entire thyroid was removed and she had two miscarriages. 

The U.S. Department of Energy has since declared Rongelap safe for resettlement, though lingering distrust and divergent definitions of “safe” have hampered the process. Eyo wants to move home, but she’s already been evacuated once from Rongelap after premature resettlement. “The U.S. government and its citizens are fighting throughout the world, and even in their own country, to uphold human rights,” says Rongelap senator Kenneth Kedi. 

“But if you really look at the case of Rongelap and Marshallese everywhere—everything about this issue is violating our human rights.” 

This is a preview of Dan Zak’s reporting on nuclear, climate and governance issues in the Marshall Islands for the Pulitzer Center and Washington Post.

The secret life of Kim Jong Un’s aunt, who has lived in the U.S. since 1998
How one family went from the top in North Korea to the middle in America.
By https://www.facebook.com/annafifield

Kim Jong Un’s aunt and uncle have been living anonymously in the United States for 18 years. But we spent the weekend in New York with Kim Jong Un’s aunt and uncle, dodging the Elmos and the Naked Cowboy in Times Square, eating sushi and Dunkin’ Donuts sandwiches. Then we went home with them, sat on their couch and watched KBS together, looked through their albums albums of the good old days in Europe. This is the story.

Designing lesson plans isn’t supposed to be this hard for teachers - The Washington Post

“To prove that teachers are teaching Common Core and teaching explicitly to the test, they now have to write up a report on each lesson they are to teach that will take them more time than actually teaching the lesson. The insanity is that no one has time in education to do this and this will actually take away time from teaching and learning and not add to it.”
