    MILWAUKEE - It's one of the few places Americans supposedly cannot go, but Chris Sturdevant ran through the streets of North Korea earlier this month as a welcome tourist.


    "The people of North Korea are very warm, they're very genuine, they are very welcoming," Sturdevant said of his brief trip to the capital city of Pyongyang.


    The librarian and competitive runner ventured into the communist nation as part of a running tour group. Some ran in the Pyongyang marathon, Sturdevant raced the 10K, finishing second in his group.

    Globalized Jeju: Tourism and Turmoil

    in Travel

    Jeju Island welcomes more than a million tourists to its beaches, resorts and UNESCO Natural World Heritage sites every month. The number has grown dramatically every year, from 5 million in 2005 to more than 12 million last year, driven by the economic confidence of a powerful domestic middle class and the package tours of China's nouveaux riche. The effect of the increase in visitors on the environmental and social stability of this island of 500,000 is dramatic and ongoing.  Ann Bush is a writer, teacher and activist from Berkley, California. Her work for The Jeju Weekly magazine has brought an articulate and insightful outsider’s take on the art, history and culture of the island. In this interview she discusses the value and dangers of tourism's economic benefits and the sanctity of cultural solidarity in the face of massive change. Her blog can be found at https://jejujive.wordpress.com/

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER SHORT TAKE: IMAGINE......(4)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD OF UNLIMITED RESOURCES AND MONEY WHERE WE COULD ALL DO AS MUCH AS WE WANT AND USE AS MUCH AS WE WANT WITHOUT EVERY HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF WHAT WE WANT.  I THINK WE'D PROBABLY HAVE TO BE IN HEAVEN TO HAVE SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY BUT, THEN AGAIN, WE OFTEN LIVE TODAY AS IF THINGS ARE UNLIMITED.


    FOOD, SUPPLIES, GOVERNMENT SERVICES, CARS, HOMES, LAND AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT MONEY CAN BUY TODAY IS A SUPPLY AND DEMAND SITUATION.  WHEN SUPPLY OUTPACES DEMAND, IT IS EASIER FOR ALL OF US TO GET WHAT WE WANT. WHEN DEMAND IS GREATER, THE OPPOSITE APPLIES, YET WE OFTEN LIVE AS IF THERE ARE NO LIMITS UNTIL WE HIT THE BRICK WALL: WE CAN'T AFFORD IT OR WE CAN'T GET IT.  AND THE WORST OF IT IS THAT BY THAT POINT WE ARE OUT OF THE ONE ITEM, MONEY, THAT IS NEEDED. THIS APPLIES TO INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT.


    TONIGHT WE'LL TALK A LITTLE ABOUT FACING REALITY: IN OUR HOMES, SCHOOLS, WORK, GOVERNMENT, CHURCH AND EVEN LEISURE.  LET'S TRY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR REAL NEEDS BEFORE WE GO AFTER THE WANTS.  IT WILL SAVE US A LOT OF GRIEF AND A LOT OF AGGRAVATION.  SEE YOU TONIGHT AT 9 (ET)
