The Korea Post notices:
Proudly introduce the traditional foods of your country:
I am pleased to inform Your Excellency that The Korea Post is publishing a Special Report in all its five media units (two in Korean and three in English) to introduce the regular food table of each country.
This is in preparation for the Grand Exhibition of Food Tables of the World to be shown to over half a million people expected to visit the 2015 Namyangju Slow Life Planet Festival on October 8-17, 2015.
Please email to email@example.com a copy of the regular Food Table of your country for publication in The Korea Post and also at the Exhibition Center of the 2015 Namyangju Festival for a duration of 10 days.
In Korea, the table normally consists of a bowl of rice, a bowl of guk (watery soup), a bowl of Jjigae (stew), a dish of roast fish, a dish of Namul (seasonal greens) and a number of other dishes (small pancakes, steamed eggs, fried bean curds, jelly, etc.). The number of bowls and dishes differ depending on the financial status of the family and on the different occasions. On such festive occasions as Seollal (Lunar New Year’s Day) and Chuseok (Autumn Full Moon Festival), the number of foods and variety are much larger than at normal time, and each has a specific food item that must not be left out, eg., Ddeokguk (rice cake soup) on the New Year’s Day and Songpyeon (stuffed small rice cake in a half-moon shape. (Please call 010-5201-1740 for further details.)
Send your news releases and feedback:
Send the Embassy news releases to firstname.lastname@example.org for publication by all its five media units, including one Korean (www.koreapost.co.kr) and one English (www.koreaposst.com) Internet dailies, which are updated real-time. (Call 010-5201-1740 for further details.)
The philosophy class was discussing about God.
“Has anyone heard God?” the professor asked.
No one spoke.
“Has anyone touched God?” Nobody spoke.
“Has anyone seen God?”
As nobody spoke, the professor said, “Then there is no God.”
Thereupon a student stood up and asked: “Has anyone heard our professor’s brain?”
“Has anyone touched our professor’s brain?”
“Has anyone seen our professor’s brain?”
When nobody spoke, the student concluded, “Then, according to our professor’s logic, it must be true that our professor has no brain!”

[Interview] British writer asking why Korea’s democracy is still delayed
Daniel Tudor spent seven years in South Korea, and has written a new book claiming the country doesn’t have real conservatives or progressives
I sat on this interview for a long time. It was at the beginning of last month in a book cafe in the Gwanghwamun area that I met him - Daniel Tudor, 33, former Seoul correspondent for the Economist. Tudor came to Seoul at the end of May. During the ten or so days that he was here, he had already had quite a few media interviews. Even after he returned to the UK, prerecorded interviews were broadcast on the TV news. If there wasn’t anything for this interview to add, I would have just quietly killed it. An interview isn’t interesting unless it’s hot off the press. But unfortunately, the points that he made are still hot and fresh in South Korea’s retrogressive political machine, especially considering how the machine is creaking more every day.
408-day aerial protest ends with an arrest warrant
When Cha Gwang-ho, 45, a dismissed worker at Star Chemical, decided to end his 408-day-long aerial protest atop a smokestack, it was an arrest warrant from the police that awaited him. As workers asking for time to greet their coworker who had endured such a bitter struggle squabbled with police officers who insisted on serving the arrest warrant, Cha was unable to descend the smokestack at the appointed time. .
One elderly woman says she indeed suffered “forced labor” in Japan
“On May 30, 1944, the principal of my elementary school, whose name was Gondo, told me he would send me to school if I went to work in Japan and said I could make a lot of money. So I took my parents’ seal without them knowing. But when I got scared and tried to back out of it, the principal threatened to take my mom and dad to the police station.” .
CDC seeking revision of guidelines to require notification of the US bringing in dangerous pathogens
The Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), affiliated with the Ministry of Health and Welfare, stated that Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) should be revised to require the US military to notify South Korea’s health authorities before bringing anthrax and other dangerous pathogens into the country, the Hankyoreh confirmed on July 7. .
Pres. Park offloading her education pledge on local governments
Some of President Park Geun-hye’s signature education and welfare pledges - including free high school education and daycare for elementary school students - are in danger of coming to nothing after the government delegated them to local education offices without a source of funding. Even next year, the fourth year of Park’s presidency, there is little chance that money from the budget will be allocated for these projects. .
Basic pension a success, but elderly poverty still a serious problem
One year after the basic pension program was launched, recipients are highly satisfied with the program, a survey found. This illustrates just how important a role basic pension plays in welfare for the elderly. However, experts believe that reform is needed in a wide range of areas before real progress can be made in resolving elderly poverty.Basic pension provides a minimum of 100,000 won (US$88) and a maximum of 200,000 won (US$176) to people 65 years and above who fall within the lowest 70% of income earners. .
Galaxy S6 fails to have expected effect on Samsung‘s Q2 performance
On July 7, Samsung Electronics released its tentative Q2 performance results, posting 48 trillion won in revenue and 6.9 trillion won in operating profit. Revenue was up 2.6% and operating profit 15.5% from Q1 as the company continued a gradual uptick in performance since Q3 of last year. .
New book says Pres. Park likes animals, because they “don’t betray you”
“President Park said she liked watching ‘Animal Kingdom.’ Her reason was that ‘animals don’t betray you.’”As shockwaves continue to ripple through the political world after Park vetoed a bill that would have revised the National Assembly Act and attacked Saenuri Party (NFP) floor leader Yoo Seong-min with comments about “politics of betrayal,”
