During the tour of the Univesity, Professor Kim Soon-kwon (AKA Maize Doctor) will welcome and greet Your Excellency with a gift box of Kim Soon-kwon Maize which is famous around the world as well as in Korea for the sweet taste of each grain even without cooking. Perhaps the esteemed country of Your Excellency might wish to seek cooperation with Dr. Kim. Further details on Dr. Kim, a member of the faculty of Handong Global University, are on Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Soon-kwon].

Also, as was previously introduced, there will be a special welcome by Mayor Lee Kang-duk of the Pohang City (http://eng.ipohang.org/site/eng/office/mayor/greetings//), who will introduce Pohang, Koreas high-tech industry city (http://eng.ipohang.org/site/eng/introduction/global/hightech/index.html), including POSCO.

Only eight days left to the Tour:

There are only 8 days left to the Tour of the Handong Global University, POSCO Museum and Yeongil-dae Pavilion on Thursday 11 June 2015.  Located in Pohang near POSCO, Handong University has incomparably outstanding features clearly telling it apart from other universities in Seoul and other regions, including an unrivalled long list of attractive scholarships and financial support for the Korean and international students. Deluxe KTX Train is used between Seoul and Pohang.

The Korea Post has already forward the Invitation of Soon-Heung Chang of Handong University to Your Excellency and Madam.

In case of our transmission failure, please advise us at 2298-1740/2, 1745/6 or 010-3388-1682 (Korean) or 010-3481-1101 (English), or 5201-1740 (Chairman Lee of The Korea Post).

-------------------------------------------

Handong Global University stands out with many distinguishing features

An unrivaled long string of scholarships, financial assistance

Most of the high school graduates and their parents in Korea tend to insist on winning matriculation at all cost at Seoul National University or other prestigious universities in Seoul such as Yonsei, Korea, Ewha (for women), Sogang and a number of others.

However, closely examining other universities in Korea, such as those in different localities out of the capital city, one is appalled at the outstanding features of other universities in various localities, which stand out in various aspects.

For further details, please visit: /news/view.html?section=162&category=184&no=947

Yeongil-dae Pavilion projecting into the sea from the shore of Pohang, which is located near the campus

of Handong Global University.

Todays humor:

Humor from a generous former Asian ambassador

Banking Rule!!

It was five in the evening, the bank was almost closed. All of a sudden, the Branch Manager received a phone call from a lady.

In a sweet voice she said - sir I urgently need $?30,000. I'll reach your bank in 10 minutes. Could you please wait for me?

Her voice was so captivating that the Branch Manager could not say no. He instructed his cashier to keep the cash ready.

The cashier obeyed his boss with great reluctance.

After a while, a hideous looking lady with white blotches all over, a huge tummy and a very ugly face came to the bank, presented a cheque and asked for the money.

The BM was taken aback, as he was expecting a pretty woman.

He immediately told the lady that they had closed for the day and she should come next day.

The cashier was furious, and he asked the BM if his intention was not to pay, then ?why was he ?made to sit late.

BM said: Its a Universal rule in banking that........ If words and figure don't match, payment is declined.

Hankuk Kyungje

Daughter-in-Law

As the son and daughter of a woman had gotten married within a month each other, a friend asked her, What kind of man did your daughter marry?

Oh, hes wonderful. He lets her sleep in, wants her to go to a health club regularly and insists on taking her out to dinner every night.

Thats nice, said her friend. And do you like your sons new wife?

The mother sighed. Im not so happy. She gets up late, spends all her time at the beauty salon and always wants to have dinner in a restaurant.

THAAD missile defense system could be used to defend against Chinese attack on US

If the US deploys the radar for THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Air Defense) on the Korean Peninsula, it would be able to detect and track intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) being launched from China toward the continental US up to 3,000 km or more, two prominent US experts say. Data collected in this manner could be communicated in real time to the early warning radar network at Clear Air Force Station in Alaska, which would allow the US to launch intercept missiles earlier.

AN/TPY-2 radar could track any Chinese ICBMs as they pass over the Korean peninsula

Two scholars were wondering about the reason why China has voiced its strong opposition to the potential deployment of THAAD on the Korean peninsula. They took note of very powerful X-band radar that can construct radar images of distant targets to a resolution of about 0.15 meters. They thought that Chinese are concerned that this radar could be used to image the deployment of warheads and decoys from their ICBMs at an early stage of their flight. .

THAAD deployment could aggravate suspicions between US and China

During the Cold War, the US and the Soviet Union were in a state of strategic stability based on mutually assured destruction. This doctrine relies on the mutual understanding that the prospect of retaliation would deter each side from striking first. This doctrine is still a reality created by nuclear weapons in the 21st century. However, missile defense systems could undermine such stability. Thats because if either side thought it could neutralize a retaliatory response, the temptation to attack first could be greater. .

At meeting, Pres. Park pledges efforts for improved relations with Japan

After participants in the South Korea-Japan Leaders Meeting, which brought together veteran leaders in the areas of politics, government, and business in South Korea and Japan, asked President Park Geun-hye to make a bold decision to improve relations between South Korea and Japan, Park reportedly said that she would make an effort. .

Administration under fire in wake of tepid response to anthrax delivery

The administration and ruling Saenuri Party (NFP) said they plan to wait until July to hold a joint Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) committee meeting with the US to discuss the recent delivery of live anthrax to a US military base in South Korea. .

At conference, experts criticize Japan on comfort women issue

Experts from North Korea, South Korea, and China at a recent international conference on the comfort women were unanimous in their calls for Tokyo take responsibility and apologize for the drafting of women as wartime sexual slaves. The outcome is drawing particular attention as a sign that Seoul and Pyongyang may collaborate on addressing the comfort women issue. .

Where minimum wage means, Dont get married. Live alone your whole life

Kim Jin-sook heads the Seoul head office of the labor union for the Homeplus retail chain. The 36-year-old has been working as a cashier for the large retailer for over seven years. But on April 24, she took on a big new job: a three-year term as a member of the Minimum Wage Council. .

South Korea and China officially sign free trade agreement

The South Korean government officially signed a free trade agreement (FTA) with China, its largest trading partner. The two countries announced that they had reached a basic agreement on the FTA in Nov. 2014. The only remaining step is ratification in each countrys parliaments, after which the FTA will take effect.
