8. Education: Shakespeare Studies
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Shakespeare educators, performers, and fans will want to check out this article collection dedicated to the prolific playwright. This collection comes from “Palgrave Communications”, an open-access online journal featuring articles related to a variety of topics in the humanities and social sciences. As of this write-up, this collection dedicated to the famous playwright features thirteen articles. The most recent one, published on June 20, 2017, is an analysis by Theresa McGarry and Kelsey Kiser of gender and speech patterns in Shakespeare's plays. Another recent article, authored by Katie Kowles of the University of Liverpool, considers “Henry IV” using Henri Lefebvre's conception of the "production of space." While these two articles invoke close readings of Shakespeare, other articles explore how Shakespeare's plays relate to history and other works of art. Visit this site.

9. Education: Tribute to Emily Hobhouse (1860-1926) Contribution to South Africa

She had persuaded the authorities to let her visit several camps and to deliver aid—her report on conditions at the camps, set out in a report entitled “Report of a Visit to the Camps of Women and Children in the Cape and Orange River Colonies”, was delivered to the British government in June 1901. As a result, a formal commission was set up and a team of official investigators headed by Millicent Fawcett was sent to inspect the camps. Overcrowding in bad unhygienic conditions due to neglect and lack of resources were the causes of a mortality rate that in the eighteen months during which the camps were in operation reached a total of 26,370, of which 24,000 were children under sixteen and infants, i.e. the rate at which the children died was some 50 a day. The following extracts from the report by Emily Hobhouse make very clear the extent of culpable neglect by the authorities. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link. (BBC)

Amid the fog of uncertainty over Brexit, a growing number of Britons are finding a route to remain in the European Union through a tiny country on the Baltic Sea. Since Estonia regained independence from the Soviet Union 26 years ago it has become one of the world’s most digitised nations, and its 1.3 million people enjoy an almost paper-free relationship with the state that allows them to do everything online - from voting to filing court claims to receiving prescriptions.

Photo of the Month
= = = = = = = = = =

One of our regular readers sent in this truly inspirational video clip of the Aurora as seen from Iceland.  What is an aurora? It is a natural light display in the sky (from the Latin word aurora, "sunrise" or the Roman goddess of dawn), predominantly seen in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. Aurorae are caused by cosmic rays, solar wind and magnetospheric plasma interacting with the upper atmosphere. Their charged particles, mainly electrons and protons, enter the atmosphere from above causing ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents, and consequent light emissions. To view the video clip of approximately 3 minutes and don’t forget to turn on the sound for additional inspiration, click here.
