SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

SAND ISLANDS OF THE MEKONG RIVER CAMBODIA

This is a study about sand - great quantities of sand supplied by the Mekong River and deposited within its wide reaches. It is about sand transportation, arrival, deposition and removal. The sand, with its high nutrient composition is regarded by Cambodian farmers as "the gift of the Mekong". Beyond the geomorphology of this sand is the way it affects the way of life of the Cambodians of the sand islands. The annual gift is usually manageable but in 2011 the Mekong flood levels were extremely high. Many from the sand islands were evacuated to higher/safer grounds. Even so, 2011 was considered to be a "disastrous year for many from the sand islands. Loss of life and considerable destruction of low-lying areas made this a year when the gifts of the river became overwhelming -particularly on sand islands that were severely flooded. To make this easier to understand you might consider linking this unit with one entitled "The Case of Chey Phy's disappearing island". Use the photographs to gain ideas about the way of life on the sand islands. "Step onto the islands" but have a care when near the sandy banks of the Mekong River because they are prone to collapse.

Season 1 Episode 2 A Aired 4/19/2013 Escape from North Korea Correspondent: Thomas Morton YouTube link provided as a courtesy: https://youtu.be/2Nzm2CidMpM Thousands of North Koreans cross the border into China illegally every year. Living in perpetual fear of being discovered, with all odds against them, defectors still do everything they can to leave. If arrested in communist Laos, they may be sent back to North Korea to face prison camp or worse. The risks of escaping the North and heading to the South are so great that fewer than 25,000 North Koreans have ever made the journey successfully. VICE joins a South Korean pastor who has developed a modern-day underground railroad to move defectors from China to freedom and eventual citizenship in South Korea.

VICE HBO Killer Kids of the Taliban Child Suicide Bombers in Afghanistan S1E1B

Killer Kids of the Taliban - Taliban-supported child suicide bombers in Afghanistan. Season 1 Episode 1B - Aired April 5th 2013 New story running time 15 minutes The Killer Kids of the Taliban - Correspondent: Shane Smith YouTube Video Link provided as a courtesy. https://youtu.be/cOndtUcRXdU The Killer Kids of the Taliban - Correspondent: Shane Smith In Afghanistan, the Taliban has ramped up its use of children in suicide bombing terrorist attacks. Ranging from teenagers to children as young as six years old, they are routinely manipulated and lied to as they are sent to blow up their targets. VICE co-founder Shane Smith travels to Kabul to speak with children who have been arrested before detonating themselves. He finds they're often ignorant of the actual teachings of the Koran, but have been misled by terror-preaching imams. In a visit with a high-ranking Taliban official, the former commander is cagey when asked about the subject of suicide bombing, but feels its use is justified in a time of war. When Smith visits the family of victims of one of the worst attacks in Kabul's history, they demand to know why. Includes one post-viewing constructed response research question.
