International Relations 101

I read the news (BBC) daily and pick up The Economist once in awhile (it's expensive!). I'm curious and want to know what is going on in the world, but most of the time I can't put anything into perspective and understand what this means for the rest of the world or the possible impact on my life. For example, I'm not really sure why Bush started a war in Afghanistan, or the repercussions of the Gaza flotilla attack. I like how The Economist will analyze issues and say "X happened. This is bad because Y might happen now." or "A is mad because B did this in the past." in short, up front sentences. When I try to look people/events up on Wikipedia or Google, it's overwhelming because there is TOO much information to read, and I'm constantly having to look up more and more and this easily turns into hours of reading and 60 tabs open on my browser. How can I get a general grasp of international relations? [more inside]

How can I work as a registered nurse in U.S.?

I really would like to get some help from somebody who knows about the regulations for international nursing in U.S.. I have ten years of nursing experiences as an registered nurse in Japan. I just graduated from a nursing program in the U.S. and would really like to work as a registered nurse. I am not a U.S. citizen and have only a student visa (F-1). I would like to apply for H1-b visa if I can find a hospital that is willing to become a sponsor. However, I have had a hard time finding a hospital and some say it is almost impossible with current immigration situations to receive a working visa for nursing. [more inside]

How does an international student get financial aid?

I am an international student going to college in the US (one of the top ten schools, but not need blind to internationals). I have not applied for a scholarship when I was first admitted, because I knew that it decreased my chances and the exchange rate was relatively comparable. Then, things went downhill; my aunt who was helping my parents pay the tuition lost her job, the exchange rate went up from 1.21 to 1.85 and that is the story. I am looking for a form of scholarship, be it need-based or merit based. How? [more inside]
