When Malala Yousafzai found out last Friday that she’d won the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi, the 17-year-old Pakistani girl didn’t celebrate immediately. Instead she returned to a chemistry class at her high school in Birmingham, England.
The Nobel Prize, she joked on Friday, is “not going to help in exams.” Then she said: “I want to see every child going to school. There are still 57 million children who have not received education.”
What needs to be done to reach those unschooled children? Goats and Soda spoke with Jacqueline Bhabha, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health and director of research at the university’s FXB Center for Health and Human Rights who specializes in children’s rights.

Useful Japanese onomatopoeia words! From Japanese Grammar: The Correcting Point


FOUND FIVE FINGERS OF A RIGHT HAND Inquire at: Dessingstrasse, 7, apt. 54 Telephone: 3.45
[W]hen the pianist Heinrich Dorn saw his runaway fingers lying in a cardboard box lined with cotton wool, he began to cry; the fingers, still pinched together, lay motionless in a hideous lump. Their cracked and ulcerated skin was caked with mud. Their once-fine tips, now repulsively flattened, bore the yellow excrescences of calluses; the nails were broken and lacerated; dried blood was turning black under the bends of the joints. – Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky’s “The Runaway Fingers,” from AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A CORPSE, translated by Joanne Turnbull & Nikolai Formozov, winners of the 2014 PEN Translation Prize.
