COVER STORY 04.04.14 themselves of social media earlier this year to vent about an annual event in what used to be a quiet place few people had heard of. Some of those celebrities even traveled to Taiji and then used social media to express their dismay over what they saw in this small town. Matt Sorum, the former drummer for Guns N' Roses, visited Taiji in September, and once there he tweeted that it was as if he was in a "bad nightmare," or watching an episode of The Twilight Zone. The "nightmare" he witnessed was the so-called drive hunt of dolphins by Taiji's fishermen. For several months every year, dolphins are herded into a small cove and penned in. Some are captured and sold to aquariums the world over; others are stabbed by fishermen wielding long harpoons- killed so their meat can be sold in local markets. Isoda, the innkeeper, is well aware of the controversy- everyone in this village of 3,400 is. She also knows that Caroline Kennedy, the high-profile U.S. ambassador to Japan, helped fuel the global outrage with a tweet on January 17, saying she was deeply concerned by the "inhumane- ness" of the hunt. But Isoda, like most members of the local fishing families, is unapologetic-and quietly bitter over how her little fishing village has been vilified by celebrities and civilians all over the world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
