Ships give a glimpse into America's past

Standing aboard the deck of the Charles W. Morgan, a sense of history washes over you. On this deck, men risked their lives hoping to find fortune on the waters of the Atlantic. On this deck, these same men carved blubber from the whales they killed, sending some breeds of the great mammals to near extinction. And it is on this deck that the story of early American whaling life emerges, through the labor of more than 1,500 volunteers at Mystic Seaport, Museum of America and the Sea, in Mystic, Conn.

Harmony day appeals to all

Kristine Koh, a Chinese student currently studying at Raffles Junior College in Singapore, ditched her smart but oh, so boring school uniform one day last month for a beautiful purple and gold sari.

She wasn’t trying to land herself in detention for breaking the school dress code. She was doing exactly what every other student in Singapore did that day – preparing for an islandwide celebration of Racial Harmony Day. -- By Geraldine Soon
