For many of his patients, Sanduk Ruit is truly a miracle worker. Over the past 30 years, Ruit has personally restored vision to more than 100,000 people in Asia and Africa. He has also taught his simply and inexpensive methods to countless other eye surgeons across the world, in countries as remote as North Korea. The entire process takes around five minutes. The doctor makes a small incision in the patient’s eye, allowing him to remove cloudy cataracts that impair vision

Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth’s surface. But despite centuries of ocean study, we’ve only explored about 5% of the world’s oceans. In fact, we know more about the surface of Mars than we know about our own deep oceans and the creatures that live there. The Mariana trench – a 1,500-mile underwater valley just south of Japan – is the deepest part of the world’s oceans. Recently, a team of researchers exploring this mysterious deep-ocean world made quite the discovery:

28 Deaths Per Target: Are Drone Strikes Causing More Problems Than They Solve?

drone wars

Most Americans are familiar with groups like Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS, and know that the American military is currently involved in the fight against these groups in countries like Iraq and Syria. However, most Americans have no idea that we have also been carrying out strikes on extremist targets in Pakistan and Yemen since 2004. Still, this revelation is probably pretty inconsequential to many people – since drone strikes began ten years ago, the U.S. government has billed them as a highly accurate and

Today, the FBI officially confirmed what a number of other U.S. government sources have been saying since Wednesday: that the North Korean government was behind the recent hacking of Sony.

After Qatar was awarded the 2022 World Cup back in 2010, approximately 1.4 million migrant workers flowed into the country. They came from countries like India, Bangladesh and Indonesia, in search of the countless construction jobs necessary to build all of the stadiums and other infrastructure needed for such a large event. Since then, more than 1,000 migrant workers have died while working under slave-like conditions in Qatar. Laborers are often forced to work extended hard-labor shifts during the summer, when temperatures regularly rise above

With extremely limited internet access and no phone lines connected to other countries, North Korea’s citizens are almost completely cut off from the outside world. Park Sang Hak was born and raised in North Korea but defected to the South when former leader Kim Jong-Il began purging many of his top intelligence officers in the late 90s. Park’s father, a North Korean intelligence agent who was posing as a businessman in Hong Kong at the time, feared that he and his family would

In 1960, the U.S. enacted a series of economic regulations, travel restrictions, and international legal penalties on Cuba in response to Fidel Castro’s nationalization (government seizure) of American property. The embargo’s long-term goal was to create a more democratic government in Cuba, but many critics say that the embargo has failed to accomplish this goal and has only served to hurt the Cuban people. Back in October, the UN General Assembly voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution to end

sinkhole feat

Last summer, a massive sinkhole opened up underneath the Corne Bayou in Assumption Parish, Louisiana. The bayou sits above an old salt mine that is slowly collapsing. On August 3, 2012, a one-acre sinkhole opened up, prompting Louisiana mayor Bobby Jindal to order an evacuation of the small Bayou Corne community. In just a single year, the sinkhole expanded in size from one to 28 acres. According to ecology.com, “In places, it is estimated to be 750 feet deep, and some 350 residents of
