Sure, journalists need to cover incidents in the area but for it to dominate the news like that ?
It is a fact that in Disney’s Aladin, the lead characters of Aladin, the princess and her father were all given American accents, whereas most of the evil characters are developed as being of Middle Eastern background (including clothing and accents). No wonder the population of this country has grown to have an inherent fear of other cultures, especially the one from central Asia.
I was hoping to lay my hands on some Google stock, but reports say that their IPO’s initial pricing is suppoed to be between $108-$135. At that rate, 1 share is all I can afford. But I cant help feeling concerned at all the initial hype surrounding it.
This week promises to be pretty hellish until Friday too. I am working a DUST event Monday evening and will probably be roped into another on Wednesday. Tuesday is reserved for FIN 311 homework, and Thursday is a midterm.
