What I did: I read up on a news article relating to an ex NBA all star Dennis Rodman who had made visits to North Korea to host basketball exhibitions despite the tension between the two countries, which have made many people question his actions and whether he had betrayed his country.

What I learned:

I looked up words I did not know:
Pandering - To gratify or indulge
Treason - Betraying one's country
Reclusive - Avoiding the company of other people
Eclectic - deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources
Tirade - Long angry speech of criticism
