Do Azerbaijan's Ethnic Minorities Face Forced Assimilation?

The ethnic groups in question are the Avars, Tsakhurs, and Lezgins, and according to official statistics together they constitute less than 1 percent of Azerbaijan's total population of 8.65 million. They live compactly in several districts of northern Azerbaijan bordering on the Russian Federation. Avars are the largest ethnic group in neighboring Daghestan, where they account for approximately 29 percent of the population, and Lezgins the third largest (13 percent). The Tsakhurs, who number around 8,000, constitute less than 0.5 percent of Daghestan's population.

Come and go when you please part 2

The reason why I wanted to study Journalism, was because of the documentary 'Welcome to North Korea' made by Dutchmen Peter Tetteroo and Raymond Feddema. It received an Emmy award and displays the absurdness of the regime. Take your time if you want to watch it, it's almost one hour long but worth seeing.

In my second year I had the honour to meet Peter Tetteroo and to talk with him about this documentary. They were not looking for secret news, they wanted to show how absurd North Korea is. A lot of things that happened were coincidence and sometimes pure luck. Today it's still a country strictly controled.

Toyota Prius Campaign

Toyota thinks that sometimes you gotta overlook and forgive a man’s wrongdoing, as long as he is driving a Prius! The new Toyota Prius campaign uses the tagline “Well, at least he drives a Prius” with a backdrop of three pretty bad/naughty scenarios.

Killer, shows a man dragging a dead body into the lake. Lover, shows a wife making out with the gardener while the husband is at the doorsteps (How very Desperate Housewives). And Prostitute shows a man in a Prius chatting up a street hooker.

Photographer Luke Stettner shot the ads for Bed & Breakfast Advertising Agency, USA.
I wouldn’t forgive a man killing me or doing my wife unless he has a Lamborghini. That’s how I roll.
