What Next...Egypt & Social Media
Mubarak Dissolves Government
Keeping his position of power. All this was spurred by changes in Tunisia and the use of
social media to organize protest rallies.
From what I understand this will happen in at

What Next...Women in History
Last Princess of Hawai'i
"Princess Victoria Kawekiu Lunalilo Kalaninuiahilapalapa Kaiulani Cleghorn, Crown Princess of Hawaii (October 16, 1875 – March 6,1899) was heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Hawaii and held the title of crown princess. Kaiulani became known throughout the world for her intelligence, beauty and determination. During the Overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy1893, she spearheaded a campaign to restore the monarchy by speaking before the United States Congress and pleading with U.S. President Grover Cleveland. Her life story grew to legendary proportions after her untimely death."
This past week I watched a 2009 film from Netflix, Princess Kaiulani. I knew very little about
this woman that made a difference for her people
after the annex of the islands to the United States. It wasn't the best film I had ever seen, but it
was interesting in .
