Reform For Egypt?

On Monday the Egyptian Army issued a 48 hour ultimatum to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi. Protesters gathered on Tahrir Square and around the country on Sunday calling for either reform or the resignation from President Morsi. They feel that in his year in office he has been too polarizing and unable to do his job adequately. Borzou Daragahi, Middle East correspondent for the Financial Times, and Ellis Goldberg, Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Washington, explain the political and social situation in Egypt.

Why do Americans Care About The British Royals?

Magazines in the grocery aisle are fully anticipating the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s child. Their first baby is expected in mid-July. Two years ago, 24 million people tuned in to watch their royal nuptials, which pales in comparison to the 750 million people worldwide who watched Charles and Diana get married. Why do Americans care so much about English royalty?
