So you've been relegated from League Two. What happens next? | Martin Belam

Chin up Leyton Orient fans – it’s not all doom and gloom in non-league. But as any football supporter knows, it’s the hope that kills you“Ultimately, relegation to non-league was our worst fear as a club but when it happened we realised it wasn’t all that bad and it actually brought us all together.”That’s the view of Bristol Rovers fan Richard Beech, which may be a crumb of comfort for Leyton Orient supporters facing up to the fact that the London side’s 112-year stay in the Football League is over. Supporters of Hartlepool and Newport County may well take note as well, as it is almost certain one of those clubs will also be in the National League next season. Continue reading...

'Desirable Asians': How Koreans settled in Russia's Far East

Korean farmers began to migrate to Russia soon after the two countries became neighbors in 1860. They were attracted by an abundance of fertile land and a relatively efficient administration on the Russian side of the border. For the governors of Russia’s Primorye Territory, Koreans tended to be the ‘desirable Asians’ (or, at least, the ‘least undesirable Asians’). Unlike Chinese migrants, who also began to arrive in Russia at that time, the Koreans came as permanent settlers, often accompanied by their entire families, and were known to be capable of producing the kind of food that the area badly needed. Furthermore, unlike the Chinese, the Koreans were not backed by a potentially dangerous neighbor (no sane Russian administrator or politician would have seen Korea as a geopolitical threat). Of course in those times when the idea of the ‘yellow peril’ was much in vogue in European intellectual circles, some people were inclined to see Korean settlers as the first wave of a dreaded ‘pan-Mongolian expansion.’ The unity of all “yellow races” was presumed. This opinion was expressed by some of the local officials, but it was not all that common. How Koreans became 'lords of the onion fields' in the USSR In 1883, discussing the first experiences of Korean settlers in the area, a prominent Russian official expressed his wish that such migration should be encouraged since “Koreans are family oriented, law-abiding, industrious and make wonderful farmers.” By around 1900, Korean farmers had become a common sight in the Russian Far East. They were, judging by the publications of the period, seen as hardworking and somewhat docile people. However, this awareness was geographically limited. In the major population centers of Russia, located far to the west, Koreans were almost never seen. Russian publications about Korea The good reputation of Koreans was backed by the Russian journalistic and academic publications that dealt with Korea that were published in the early 1900s. A brief period of Russian diplomatic and political activity in Korea 1895-1905 might have been driven by Russia’s imperialist schemes and ambitions, but it also produced a number of articles, booklets and research publications dealing with Korea and all things Korean. Most of these publications can be seen as travel accounts, produced by visitors to the ‘Land of Morning Calm’. These writings are generally sympathetic – if occasionally paternalistic. The image of an ‘Oriental backwater’ populated by hard-working and polite people is predominant, and often the authors did not particularly distinguish between the Korean setllers they encountered in Russia and people in Korea proper. Korean immigrants saw the Russian Far East as a land of opportunities. Source: Vladivostock people / Archive PhotoFor example, Nikolai Przhevalsky, a prominent Russian geographer (and a spymaster) was one of the first educated Russians to come in contact with Koreans in the late 1860s. He was really impressed. “As I far as I have seen, politeness, industriousness and ability to cooperate are, generally speaking, the most distinguishing features of the Koreans, who are so superior to their Chinese neighbors in this regard,” Przhevalsky wrote. Similar opinions were frequently repeated by journalists of the early 1900s. For example, a Russian journalist wrote in 1900: “In spite of all hardships, the Koreans has managed to remain good-natured and tranquil. The Koreans have another remarkable peculiarity: they are ready to help others whenever necessary.” The words, somewhat paternalistic, but clearly sympathetic, present a good summary of what Russian journalists, politicians and administrators tended to think about Koreans and Korean settlers in Russia. And quiet flows the Han is a blog about the historical and contemporary interactions between Russians and Koreans. In most cases, but by no means always, political issues are studiously avoided by the author, whose major interest is everyday life, culture and the lives of individuals. In this blog, Dr. Andrei Lankov explores how Russian culture was (and is) seen in Korea. He talks about migration, inter-marriage and even cuisine. Dr. Andrei Lankov, born in 1963, is a historian specializing in Korea. He is also known for his journalistic writings on Korean history. He has published a number of books (four in English) on Korean history. Having taught Korean history at the Australian National University, he now teaches in Kookmin University in Seoul.

At Science March, Flint Whistleblower Warns More Crises To Come If Trump Gets His Way

And had it not been for Hanna-Attisha’s heroic action to side-step bureaucracy, the poisoning would have almost certainly persisted.  The crisis in Flint, which is expected to have devastating long-term effects, has destroyed Hanna-Attisha’s trust in government.  “You assume that when you turn on your tap that your water is OK,” she told HuffPost. “To realize that the people in government who are supposed to do their job to ensure that your water is OK weren’t doing their job, that not only shattered my trust, that shattered the trust of the entire population.”  And with Trump now in office, the situation is “even more anxious,” she said.  “If we couldn’t trust what we had before, how can we trust what we have now?” she said. “It is a scary time.” Trump, who’s called climate change “bullshit” and a “hoax” and perpetuated the debunked theory that vaccines cause autism, has proposed a sweeping 31 percent cut in funding for the Environmental Protection Agency and the elimination of federal monies for the National Academy of Science. He’s also acted quickly to rollback a number of key Obama-era environmental protections, including the Clean Power Plan.  Hanna-Attisha said the EPA’s resources were already stretched thin, and current policies have yet to catch up with science. The notion that lesser funding could somehow result in an equivalent or increased level of protection, she said, is “absolutely unreal.” For the English-born Iraqi-American, attending Saturday’s march was a no-brainer.  “How could I not be here?” she said. “How couldn’t anybody who breathes clean air, drinks clean water, has ever taken a medication, has ever gone to the doctor — How could anybody not be here?” Hanna-Attisha called on young people to find something they love, take risks and do what they can to make the world a better place. And if they happen to be aspiring scientists, all the better. “The world needs more ethical, professional, activist-oriented scientists,” she said.

Leyton Orient relegated from the Football League after 112-year stay

Swindon Town were relegated from League One while Nottingham Forest took a major step towards Championship survival with a nervy win over Reading• Nottingham Forest gave their chances of Championship survival a huge boost with a nerve-jangling victory against Reading at the City Ground. Two goals by Britt Assombalonga and a third from Mustapha Carayol had Forest cruising before a Yann Kermorgant double put the home fans on edge, but Reading couldn’t find the equaliser. The result pulls Mark Warburton’s side three points clear of Blackburn in the third relegation place, who could only manage a goalless draw at Wolves. Wigan’s 0-0 with Cardiff leaves them almost certain to go down, something which would be confirmed should Birmingham pick up a point or more in Harry Redknapp’s first game in charge on Sunday, against Aston Villa.
