Park Geun-hye, the former president of South Korea who was arrested last year on corruption charges was finally sentenced today. She is to receive 24 years in jail, a sentence that is much larger than would be expected for people of her age or those that have been sentenced on corruption charges.The corruption scandal that lead to her arrest was, in many ways, a kind of South Korean Watergate, that has been responsible for generating much hate and distrust of the government, politicians, and the upper class.

On this day in history, the first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896. 1,500 years after being banned by Roman emperor Theodosius, Athens hosted 13 different countries and 60,000 spectators to the modern games. The Olympics as an event got off to a slow start, as not many athletes were invited, all of the participants were male, and the Games were often overshadowed by World’s fairs. But, the first truly successful Olympics were held in Paris in 1924, featuring 3,000 athletes, over 100 being women, from 44 countries.
