  2. The pseudo-theory on origins of the ‘Malay race’ -€“ Lilianne Fan

    southeastasianists:

    These reactions, largely expressed through social media, have yet, however, to lead to a critical scholarly and public debate. Such a debate should interrogate not just the content of the theory itself, but also the very persistence of the concept of ‘race’ in Malaysian public life. Why does ‘race’, an outdated category in so many parts of the world, still matter so much in Malaysia? And what does the rise in research on racial origins and authenticity actually reveal?

  7. Learn to Read Baybayin

    Hey, everyone! I’m here to share this tutorial I made on learning Baybayin, an indigenous writing system of the Philippines. There are a number of online resources for this topic, but I wanted to give people an option that includes active practice and learning, instead of just staring blankly at a chart.

    This tutorial covers:

    • the basic characters (titik)
    • the kudlit
    • the virama kudlit
    • punctuation
    • culture and context of Baybayin
    • reading practice in Tagalog, Bisaya, Kapampangan, and Ilocano

    The tutorial is free on the Memrise website, so CLICK HERE to give it a try, and please reblog to share with anyone who might like to learn! Maraming salamat!

  10. Indonesia cave reveals history of ancient tsunamis

    archaeologicalnews:

    JAKARTA, Indonesia — A cave discovered near the source of Indonesia’s massive earthquake-spawned tsunami contains the footprints of past gigantic waves dating up to 7,500 years ago, a rare natural record that suggests the next disaster could be centuries away — or perhaps only decades.

    The findings provide the longest and most detailed timeline for tsunamis that have occurred off the far western tip of Sumatra island in Aceh province. That’s where 100-foot (30-meter) waves triggered by a magnitude-9.1 earthquake on Dec. 26, 2004, killed 230,000 people in several countries, more than half of them in Indonesia.

    The limestone cave, located within a couple hundred yards (meters) of the coast near Banda Aceh, is about 3 feet (1 meter) above knee-high tide and protected from storms and wind. Read more.

Thai opposition protesters vow to prevent election

Anti-government protesters determined to unseat Thailand’s prime minister surrounded a Bangkok sports stadium on Monday in an unsuccessful attempt to block political parties from registering for February elections.
"We were aware that protesters would be blocking all entrances, so we went into the stadium at 4 a.m. while they were sleeping," said Prompong Nopparit, spokesman of the ruling Pheu Thai party. "Despite all this, the elections will continue as planned on Feb. 2."
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who is popular among the rural majority but disliked by the urban middle class and elite, called the Feb. 2 elections in an attempt to defuse tensions after several weeks of sometimes violent demonstrations in the Thai capital.
Jousting between the two sides also took place Monday in the lobby of the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), an agency similar to the FBI. The department’s building was occupied by protesters for the second time in several weeks.
