Another Olympic "Festival"… …. 70,000 Condoms Lacking

London Olympic athletes and officials are coming from all over the world, and organizers are doing their best to accommodate the representatives as the host country for the Olympics. As part of this, 70,000 condoms will be prepared for them during the 2012 games. However ESPN, the sports broadcasting station, said that this number is not nearly enough.

Muslim Athletes, Olympics or Ramadan?

Muslim athletes agonize over whether to compete or not at the London Olympics, according to CNN. The Muslim festival of Ramadan falls in the period when the Games take place. Hence, Muslims cannot consume any food or drink, including water, during the day, except for the pregnant, the sick and the elderly, in the month of Ramadan, which means “hot months” in Arabic.
Therefore Muslim athletes must decide between religious duty and performance enhancement. Because of this, many Muslim athletes lose strength in the games, and as a result, some countries such as Egypt allow their national Olympic athletes to skip their Muslim duties during the Olympics. Organizers support these competitors with 24-hour dining facilities and provide the players with snacks, water and fruit.

Japan Has a Hard time Working out Youth Bullying Issues

According to a report from Mainichi News, the Education Ministry in Japan has announced plans to set up a department in connection with youth bullying problems. The reason for this measure is because of a recent outbreak of bully-related suicides among young students. A 15-year-old boy in Otsu, Tokyo, killed himself after his classmates bullied him, forcing the student to commit suicidal behaviors. The Education Ministry is also going to conduct a survey of all elementary, middle and high schools in Japan in order to investigate the actual situation.



Thousands in Hong Kong Protest New Education Plan

Thousands in Hong Kong protested against the upcoming introduction of Chinese patriotism lessons, by marching in the streets on July 29th. The opposition parties include teachers and parents in HK, maintaining that these classes brainwash young people into supporting the Chinese Communist Party. Authorities denied this and announced that the aim of the educational curriculum is only for establishing the pride in one’s nation, and they are encouraging local schools to implement Chinese patriotism classes as soon as the new semester begins in September. This protest shows the increasing fear of people in HK of losing their identities, as China has exercises its great influence over the world.
