Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history from Queen's University, he returned to East Asia to teach English for a year and ended up staying there for nearly two decades before retiring in Kingston, Ontario to become a full-time writer. He is the author of the nonfiction books Speed Duel: The Inside Story of the Land Speed Record in the Sixties, which received starred reviews in both Publishers Weekly and Library Journal; I Just Ran: Percy Williams, World’s Fastest Human, named one of the five "Best Sports Books of 2011” by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation); and the monumental The Imjin War, the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, hailed as “magnificent” by the South China Morning Post. Bad Elephant Far Stream is his first novel.
Samuel Hawley was born and grew up in South Korea, the son of missionary parents. After earning BA and MA degrees in history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, he returned to East Asia with his wife to work as a teacher for nearly two decades, first in Japan and then Korea, ending in 2007 as an associate professor of English at Yonsei University in Seoul. He additionally served for three years as head of Yonsei’s 3,000-student Communicative English Department, and as publications chairman and editor for the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch. He continues to serve as general editor of the Society’s annual journal Transactions, the oldest Korean studies journal in the world, published since 1900.
It was in Japan in the early 1990s that Samuel started writing for magazines and newspapers on topics ranging from Japanese fashion and international travel to the world of sumo wrestling, daimyo clocks and fishing at urban tsuribori. By the late ‘90s he had turned his attention to books. His most notable work from this period is The Imjin War (co-published by the Royal Asiatic Society, Seoul and the Insitute of East Asian Studies, UC Berkeley, 2005) the most comprehensive account in English of Japan’s sixteenth-century invasion of Korea and attempted conquest of China, an event of seismic importance in the history of East Asia. He next focused on US Navy ensign and American diplomat George C. Foulk, Washington’s representative in Seoul at the time of Korea’s opening to the West. Foulk, one of the first Westerners to learn to speak Korean and to travel extensively in the country, was perhaps the foremost Western expert at the time on the “Hermit Kingdom." Hawley's interest in Foulk resulted in two books, America's Man in Korea, and Inside the Hermit Kingdom (both Lexington Books, 2007).
New 'Super Earth' Planet X discovered at edge of Solar System
Two separate research groups claim to have finally uncovered a massive new planet beyond Pluto.
They believe a dot picked up by ALMA radio telescopes in Chile is a new planet several times the size of Earth or a larger brown dwarf star further away.
One group – from Sweden – has named the new world "Gna" after a Nordic messenger goddess.
Astronomers have been hunting for another planet – dubbed Planet X – to explain wobbles in the other planets' orbits for 100 years.
Conspiracy theorists have warned Planet X is the alien world Nibiru.
The independent research groups spotted "new blackbody point sources" at different areas of the night sky – once near the star W Aquilae and the other next to our nearest neighbouring star system, Alpha Centauri.
Astronomers first thought the bodies were faint glows from far-distant background galaxies.
But in separate pairs of snapshots – taken over a period of months – both objects seemed to move swiftly against the “fixed” background stars – suggesting they were much closer to Earth.
The authors of the Swedish study write: "Simple arguments convince us that this object cannot be an ordinary star.
"We argue that the object is most likely part of the solar system… albeit at a distance too far to be detectable at other wavelengths."
Different kinds of space object could explain the light source.
Theories range from a 125-mile wide asteroid floating between Saturn and Uranus, to a planet somewhere between the size of Earth and Neptune six times further from the Sun than Pluto, to a small cooled-down star called a brown dwarf even further out.
Peter Mingils and Scott Johnson discuss this week’s Network Marketing and MLM interesting topics on Building Fortunes Radio www.buildingfortunesradio.com
Scott Johnson has been in the industry for over 15 years.
He was a faithful distributor with Amway for the beginning part. However as he learned more about the role of tools in the marketing plan, he became more disillusioned when he found out that a big part of the income being promoted from stage was not derived from Amway directly but derived from the sale of books, tapes, and functions to the downline.
This created a conflict of interest in Scott's mind as this additional income stream was not being openly disclosed to himself and others that were not part of the privileged few.
His story is certainly worth listening to.

Why are “bad boys” so attractive/addictive to some women? Why do women always fall for the bad boys and ignore the good guys is an ongoing debate. It’s a subject that has been discussed many times before the idea that all women at some point in their life are drawn to the infamous man that does not succumb to the rules in society. Join Soul Kitten, Taralyn, and Guest co-host Lisa Antoinette for an in-depth conversation about the many layers of the bad boy and the inevitable appeal to this type of charm.

Today on air, i am only speaking to crime: crime against women, rape against women and men, injustices in Courts and at UNIV's like in Tennessee. It's so bad. how come you don't make demands of the Political Presidential Candidates to speak to it. tepid statements is all you get and this from afuture leader. The leader of our Countyry should be livid, on fire and besides herself/himself and besides you. This won't happen with the present cast of Campaigb2016 Comedy. It is a shame that you let these candidates get ahead of me and have TV media hosts proclain that you have met the Presidential Candidates when you have not met me on TV. Just yesterday of Channel 5 FOX News in D.C., a reporter introduced the wives of the candidates, speaking to their involvement in their spouses' campaigns. Where am I on TV - kept off because i have no juice to get on TV and Politics controlls who you see on TV - only candidates from the 2 biggest Partiers - only. if you want to be shortchanged, mugged, ripped off, i can't help you. You have to turn to me now. Read the Articles about the Univ of Tennessee and their firing of their most prestigious Medical Professional over an incident with Peyton Manning. There have been Court documents filed with well over 30 witnesses trestifying that this Woman did not do what Peyton said she did. If I am Pres, no one has to wait 15 yrs to have their honor restored and be ignored. I c2it. Curtis Clinton. You'll not find me on a ballot
