Advice to a Nephew
This was a list of advice that I gave to my nephew when he was about to begin high school in the late 2000s. It was in a letter that I never sent, and a part of me regrets that I did not get to at least talk to him about most of these points. I did share some advice in texts and conversations, but I recently found this page in my notes and I thought that it was only fair to share it with the rest of you. Your judgment counts…
Daebak! K-drama is teaching me Hangul
I took Spanish during high school and French in college, and languages confuse me greatly! What tense do I use? Is that a masculine or feminine object? Does the subject go first or last in the sentence? Why does a pronoun have a different verb form than the actual object? I am all mixed up in languages. Then, I decided I wanted to learn Korean/Hangul. It is one of my student’s fault. He said - I think you would like this show that is on Netflix. Hooked at Asian drama, I joined Viki and binge-watched multiple shows.

Billions Of Dollars Will Continue To Pour Into Italian Soccer
While many think the Italian Serie A (the top Italian soccer league) is a well-oiled machine, the Italian league has been lagging Spain, Germany, France, and England since the late 90s. This both in terms of international performance as well as in terms of new investment and innovation. At the national level, Italian soccer has lost its luster over the last 10 years, as for the second term in a row, the Azzurri (this is how the Italian soccer team is known) did not qualify for the World Cup. Missing the Qatar World Cup in late 2022 represents financial losses that could range between 10-15 billion dollars. These are losses the Italian soccer cannot afford. To top all that, last week's fall of the Italian government, led by Prime Minister Mario-Draghi, one of the most respected international technocrats, represents another financial blow for Italy as billions of dollars from the European Union may never reach Italy. While this crisis will isolate Italy within the EU, and make Italian borrowing more costly, it will accelerate investment and M&A activity across the soccer sector as soccer assets become cheaper. M&A is expected to accelerate across the three Italian soccer leagues namely the Serie A, Serie B and Serie C.

That year, the school uploaded a series of videos showing their students reacting to getting into the college of their choice.
2022 Graduates — It Is That Time Of The Year

James and I met under what you could call scandalous circumstances. I was in high school and he…well, he was not “in” high school, but I often saw him as I walked the halls between each class. Take from this description what you will.
Is Free College in the U.S. a Radical Proposal?
During his 2016 campaign for U.S. President, Senator Bernie Sanders made free college part of his progressive agenda. He’s spoken many times about the life-altering changes that could come from making higher education free to all in America. Bernie has even gone so far as to call free college a right as a human being. He also pointed out that many countries in Europe offer some form of free college to their citizens. Immediately, his opponents called it a “radical” idea that would never pass through the U.S. Congress. By the time Senator Sanders ran for President again in 2020, free college was a major talking point in Democratic circles, with many people agreeing that it could change the lives of millions of Americans who would otherwise remain poor and uneducated or saddled with crushing debt for the rest of their lives.
