  When prison becomes a respite from civilization
Posted by: Odin - Fri, 30 Nov 2018 00:06:51 +0000, 12:06 AM - Forum: Health & Psyche - Replies (3)

Work and school life in South Korea have become so stressful and bad, that some people are paying to escape it, by temporarily staying in a prison-like community to be alone:

HONGCHEON, South Korea (Reuters) - For most people, prison is a place to escape from. For South Koreans in need of a break from the demands of everyday life, a day in a faux jail is the escape.

“This prison gives me a sense of freedom,” said Park Hye-ri, a 28-year-old office worker who paid $90 to spend 24 hours locked up in a mock prison.

Since 2013, the “Prison Inside Me” facility in northeast Hongcheon has hosted more than 2,000 inmates, many of them stressed office workers and students seeking relief from South Korea’s demanding work and academic culture.

“I was too busy,” said Park as she sat in a 5-sq-m (54-sq-foot) cell. “I shouldn’t be here right now, given the work I need to do. But I decided to pause and look back at myself for a better life.”

  American Christian Missionary Killed by North Sentinelese
Posted by: Odin - Fri, 23 Nov 2018 02:49:23 +0000, 02:49 AM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (2)

This is both sad, and funny...

CNN  - John Allen Chau was an adventurer who hiked in North Cascades National Park in the Pacific Northwest, traveled to Israel and went on mission trips to South Africa. But he was always drawn to North Sentinel Island off the coast of India, and the people there.

The Sentinelese live in isolation on the remote island in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago, protected by Indian law to maintain their way of life and protect them from modern illnesses because they lack immunity. Chau took a scouting trip to the Andaman islands several years ago and told people of his desire to return, said a friend, John Middleton Ramsey.

Chau's zeal to spread the Christian gospel took him back to the remote island, where he apparently was killed last week by tribespeople after trespassing, authorities said. Contact with the isolated tribe is prohibited. But those who knew the American missionary are calling him a martyr for the Christian faith.

  St. Clair's Defeat
Posted by: @demon - Tue, 20 Nov 2018 22:41:22 +0000, 10:41 PM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (1)

On the evening of the 3rd of November in 1791, a coalition of Ojibwe, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca, Tuscarora, Wyandot, Wabash, Cahokia, Kaskaskia, Michigamea, Peoria, Tamaroa, Mississaugas, Menominee, Shawnee, Lenape, Miami, Kickapoo, Chickamauga, and Muscogee tribes amassed an army of around 1,100 fighters, in the forests near present-day Fort Recovery, Ohio. The army was led by Little Turtle of the Miami, Blue Jacket of the Shawnee, and Buckongahelas of the Lenape. It also included a large number of Potawatomi fighters. Opposing them was the first American army ever assembled following the American Revolution. Historians today remember the battle by the name of St. Clair’s defeat and the Battle of Wabash River. It led to the first ever Congressional investigation of the executive branch, and today remains the most decisive loss in the history of the American military, with the Americans suffering a casualty rate of nearly 97%.

  Bison are helping rewild the last of the midwest prairies
Posted by: Odin - Tue, 13 Nov 2018 23:56:24 +0000, 11:56 PM - Forum: Environment - No Replies

When white settlers first arrived, a large swath of the U.S. was blanketed in tallgrass prairie. But turmoil came to the landscape shortly thereafter, as those settlers mowed down the bountiful biodiversity to get at the fertile soil beneath. Of the 170 million acres of tallgrass prairie that existed, only four percent of it remains today, ghosts among the cornfields.

It wasn’t just delicate grasses and wildflowers that were wiped out. An estimated 30 million bison roamed the Lower 48 before an extermination campaign brought that number down to around 300 by 1884. The animals have since rebounded somewhat in the the forests of the West and plains of the South, but the remaining tallgrass prairies in more northerly latitudes like Illinois, Minnesota, and Indiana are largely devoid of the grass-munching, mud-wallowing ungulates.

That started to change four years ago, with the introduction of bison to Nachusa Grasslands, a 3,500-acre preserve just 100 miles west of Chicago managed by the Nature Conservancy. It’s the first conservation-oriented bison program east of the Mississippi and the results could inform prairie management around the country. Early returns show the bison reintroduction has been a success, and the animals are already having surprising impacts on the grasslands that could be making it healthier. That’s a big deal for such an imperiled landscape.

  The Hadza: Freest People on Earth Face Extinction
Posted by: Odin - Tue, 13 Nov 2018 23:48:42 +0000, 11:48 PM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (1)

The Hadza have been living peacefully, happily and sustainably in the Great Rift Valley of East Africa for at least 100,000 years. Their home, around Lake Eyasi, in Tanzania, has been called “the cradle of mankind.” A Harvard anthropologist calls them “the strongest link” we have to 2 million years of human evolution. Thanks to the spread of agriculture to nearly every corner of the earth, that link is about to disappear.

The consequences of allowing civilization to crowd the Hadza – and the handful of other hunter-gatherer tribes remaining on the planet – out of existence are captured beautifully and tragically in the documentary The Hadza: Last of the First.

  Jarawa Hunter-Gatherers Say They Don’t Want to Be Part of Our World
Posted by: Odin - Sun, 11 Nov 2018 00:53:38 +0000, 12:53 AM - Forum: Anthropology & History - Replies (1)

Like the Hadza of East Africa, the Jarawa hunter-gatherers of the Andaman Islands also face extinction, thanks to the ever-expanding nature of agriculture and civilization.


To add insult to injury, a highway has been built right through the heart of their ancestral lands to accommodate “human safaris” – in which tourists toss food at and snap photos of the Jarawa like animals in a zoo.

“On a remote island off the Indian coast, the first humans are still living in a forgotten world,” begins the trailer of a new documentary about the Jarawa titled Organic. “They left Africa 70,000 years ago. They are [among] the most ancient people in the world. There are no more than 400 of them. Up til now, they had managed to shelter themselves from the madness of our world.”
