The Korea Post notice:

Introduce the traditional food and beverage of your country to the world as well as to Korea at Namyangy Slow Life Festival Oct. 8-17, 2015

(Please share the information with Madam.)

The Korea Post is supporting the 2015 Namyangju Slow Life Planet Festival on October 8-17, 2015, and publishes a Special Report on the Traditional Dishes of all the different countries of the world in its August, September and October issues this year in all its five media units, three in English and two in the Korean language. It consists of introducing:

1. The table-setting of each of the 60 different countries

2. The world food show

3. Invitation of the ambassadors and madams to the opening ceremony on October 8, 2015.

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 boast the wonderful foods and beverage as shown in the above article!.

For participation and further details, please call 010-3388-1682 (Korean) or 010-5201-1740 English.)

Paradigm Shift

Years ago a large American shoe-making company sent out two salesmen to the African continent.

On the third day, there was a cable from one of the salesmen:

“Returning on next plane. Can’t sell any shoes here. Everybody goes barefoot.”

Two weeks later, the company was overjoyed at the letter it received from the other man on the African assignment:

“Fifty orders are enclosed. Prospects are unlimited here, because nobody has shoes.”

With its hacking program, NIS collected nearly 3,000 pieces of evidence per day

On Monday, the National Assembly is scheduled to launch an investigation into intelligence agency‘s snooping

Each day, the National Intelligence Service (NIS) collected an average of 2,966 pieces of data through monitoring targets with Remote Control System (RCS), a program it purchased from Italian security company Hacking Team. Since the program enabled the spy agency to monitor 20 people at a time, it apparently collected an average of 148 pieces of evidence per person, per day. Furthermore, additional information has come to light showing that Hacking Team was monitoring the agency’s activities.

Labor advocates alarmed by court’s ruling on “abetting” obstruction of operation

A court ruling finding a man guilty of criminally abetting obstruction of operations for supporting a workplace occupation by workers is generating controversy. Observers in the organized labor community fretted that the decision could signal a revival of a ban on “third party involvement” that was introduced under President Chun Doo-hwan and later abolished in 2006 after being abused to suppress labor and democracy movements. .

NIS an “active user” of remote control hacking systems

For the time being, no easy solution is likely to be found about the question of compensation and an apology for the Chinese forced to work for the company. .

Unification Minister says Mt. Keumgang tourism a “separate issue” from sanctions

While appearing on July 26 on the KBS program “Sunday Diagnosis,” Minister Hong Yong-pyo was asked whether the resumption of tourism would be discussed as a separate issue from the so-called May 24 Measures that have restricted interactions with North Korea since the 2010 sinking of the ROKS Cheonan.
