Constructing the Incenter
The point of concurrency of the three angle bisectors of a triangle is the incenter. It is the center of the circle that can be inscribed in the triangle, making the incenter equidistant from the three sides of the triangle. This video explains how to construct the incenter by first constructing the three angle bisectors. The point where they all intersect is the incenter. The incenter is always located within the triangle. (1:08)

Japan - The 'Despised' Ainu People
An insightful report on racial discrimination in Japan. "A small boy denies his Ainu ancestry for fear of being bullied in a society where conformity is valued above all else.

"Our Little Ghost" by Louisa May Alcott (poetry reading)
Maybe this is a poem about a living child expressed in a somewhat macabre way, but on close examination that seems less likely.

When reality is harsh, literature and art tend to be idealised. Little Women is about a family of four sisters. Beth, the youngest, becomes ill and she actually dies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisa_May_Alcott http:/
