On January 13, 1999, a girl named Hae Min Lee disappeared. She was a senior at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore County in Maryland. Born in South Korea, Hae Min Lee migrated to the United States along with her mother and brother to live with her grandparents. She played field hockey and lacrosse. At age 18, Hae Min Lee was reported missing by her family after she was supposed to pick up her little cousin from kindergarten around 3:15 PM and drop her home, but she never showed up. Weeks later on February 1, an anonymous call was made to the Baltimore County Police suggesting that Adnan Syed, Hae’s ex-boyfriend was responsible for her death. The investigation showed that although Lee had been dating Syed for the past year, they had recently broken up. Furthering

The murder of Hae Min Lee was a mind twisting case. When listening to the podcast, you are left to wonder about who is guilty and who is innocent. With all of the evidence in this case, I am left to believe Adnan Syed is innocent. There are many facts that lead people to believe that he is guilty. However, some of the evidence doesn’t line up. Adnan has an alibi, the crime doesn’t fit the time frame that he had, and Jay had inconsistencies in his stories about Adnan, so the question is was he actually telling the truth. Adnan doesn’t remember very much about the day of Hae’s murder, and if he actually did commit the crime, you would remember that day perfectly.

C.R.E.AM. , Cash rules everything around me, sound familiar? Well if it does that term originated from one of the greatest rap groups of all time. Wu-Tang Clan was “the” rap group that could rap about anything from the streets, money, fame, all while implanting kung fu to it. But it wasn’t just random the dialogue had meaning and influence on the song and their style of music. This is which no other rap group had done or has done in modern time. Wu-Tang had their own swagger and influence in the rap world and rap game. They brought back the New York/Harlem sound that was missing and also was able to stay underground unlike other people who get fame and hit the mainstream and jump into pop. They stuck to their classic, and raw material. They have stuck together never left each

Your life is in your possession, and nobody wants to live the same life as another. Why would you? You’ll never have unique experiences, interests or stories to tell others like your children; even if you really think that you want to live the same as your idol, honestly, you truly don’t. Life is about being disjointed and having your own quirks that can distinguish you from every other man. How has Sam Zhou controlled his life? How is his life different? Well, one element is that he doesn’t have an idol, but this is just one insignificant fact about him. Sam’s life has been greatly been guided by others, yet he thinks for himself and he thinks about the past and future. But to truly understand Sam Zhou, you have to go

You may be marveling as to why this horrible, merciless, and repugnant event has endured. Or, your view could be that you may not favor this occasion, but hold the opinion that a society’s tradition and culture stands as an exception when concerning morally outrageous matters. Yet, retaining the latter view would be ignorant concerning this particular issue. Perhaps, you fell into believing a common misconception that the practice of dog-meat consumption is a Chinese tradition. This custom lost support by the Sui-Tang dynasties (581-907 AD) and rejected it as an indecent habit. Subsequent dynasties valued dogs as helpers and hunting partners. The average Chinese citizen finds public dog slaughter, butchery, and bloodshed inexcusably offensive.
