By Kiều Vân HÀ NỘI The case of a student being openly molested on a bus is shocking enough. What that young girl must be going through in the aftermath of the abuse is unthinkable. But what is equally, if not more disturbing, is the fact that so many people on the bus from Nha Trang to HCM City did nothing to prevent the abuse. 20-year-old N.T Hằng, not her real name, said she was dismayed by the lack of help she received from the 40-plus fellow passengers on board at the time. "I was really shocked that people heard ‘my call for help’ but did nothing,” she said. “I was crying, but they only looked at the abuser, then just went back to sleep." And she is not the only one left angry, annoyed and disappointed by the lack of social morals displayed by those close by. Hundreds of readers shared their condemnation on the zing.vn online newspaper, calling on the bus company to act against the sex abuser. But the big question … [Read more...] about Modern society rotting with insensitivity
Help with teenage daughter attitude
THERE’S no remorse, no apology and no indication that she has changed her views in any way. Instead, with a breathtaking sense of entitlement, a heavily pregnant ISIS-supporting British teenager wants to be rescued from a Syrian refugee camp and allowed back here to have her baby. Pregnant jihadi schoolgirl Shamima Begum who fled UK to join ISIS begs to come home to have fanatic’s baby after escaping terror group Is there any other country in the world which would consider — even for a nanosecond — welcoming 19-year-old Shamima Begum across its border in order to take advantage of the health and benefits system? Shockingly, she told a British journalist that she feels weak for fleeing to the refugee camp instead of remaining in the village of Baghuz with ISIS terrorists who she described as “brave”. Most of them have actually now fled from that spot in the past week after being flushed out by US-backed … [Read more...] about Only UK would let ISIS terrorist Shamima Begum back home to use NHS
WOLF POINT, Mont. – The faint scars on Ruth Fourstar's arms testify to a difficult life on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation: the physical and emotional abuse at home, the bullying at school, the self-harm that sent her rotating through mental health facilities and plunged her to a remedial program from the honor roll. A diploma from Wolf Point High School could be a ticket out of this isolated prairie town in eastern Montana. Instead, Fourstar, 17, sees her school as a dead end. The tutoring she was promised to get her back on track did not materialize. An agreement with the high school principal to let her apply credits earned in summer courses toward graduation fell through, Fourstar said. The special education plan that the school district developed for her, supposedly to help her catch up, instead laid out how she should be disciplined. Her family fears that she will inflict the pain of not graduating on herself. "I'm just there," Fourstar said. "I feel invisible." Her … [Read more...] about ‘I feel invisible’: Native students languish in public schools

By Lidia Kelly, Justyna Pawlak and Anna Wlodarczak-Semczuk WARSAW, Oct. 18 (Reuters) - Last winter, Monika Pawlik spent her days crawling through mud and digging trenches in frozen ground, training for Poland's home guard. Her daughter, Helena, hadn't yet turned 2 years old. The town hall clerk is under no illusions about the potential risks of serving in the volunteer army, saying she is ready to die for the homeland. "I understand that if there is a war, formations such as ours are sent to their death," she says. "I think that I mainly did it for myself and probably from feeling a patriotic duty." Pawlik is a citizen of the European Union, but the 24-year-old's commitment to defend her nation reflects a mounting unease throughout Poland and elsewhere in the EU. Nearly 15,000 Poles have joined the country's volunteer forces since their inception in 2017, a number that Poland's military planners hope will reach 53,000 in the coming years. Poland is a fully paid-up member of NATO. As … [Read more...] about Special Report: Why Poland fell out of step with Europe
