Masters in Computer Science student wants Internship/Job in Seoul

Hi,

I'm currently searching for a position that I could possibly get before travelling to Seoul.  I would like to work in an internship or Graduate position with a company that does Web/Mobile Development or I'm willing to do other positions that are related to modules/subjects I've studied at university.

I would like to travel to Seoul in Feb, 2014.  I'm currently at the end of my Masters in Computer Science course.  I don't have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. The course I am doing is a Skills Conversion course.  Nonetheless, this hasn't stopped me from doing well in some topics.

If anybody can contact me in regards to any positions or provide with any online resources such as websites that can search for these fields, I'd be extremely grateful.

Obvious signs of Vampire infiltration of the South Korean populace

Today, in a grocery store, I finally put the pieces together and felt like a dummy for not seeing it earlier. Korea has a huge number of vampires and they have infiltrated the government to hide the fact.  It’s so obvious!

Was this a documentary?

 

Consider:


Vegetarianism for Cancer Patients

Vegetarianism for Cancer Patients

Guest Post by  Jillian McKee

People may follow a vegetarian diet for a variety of reasons, including being concerned about animal welfare, the environment, desiring better health or simply disliking meat. Whatever the reason, beginning a vegetarian diet can be a smart health move, especially for patients with cancer.


The Selfish Gene

For one year, two years, three years, I’ve been convinced that I need to read more nonfiction, and so a day or two ago I downloaded a very decent torrent from ISO called “25 Greatest Science Books Of All Time”—featuring authors who are all dead or, in the case of Richard Dawkins, rich, famous, and in no need of the few cents they would make if I were to waste my hard-earned cash on a price-fixed amazon ebook. This is certainly theft, but only actual theft if I steal from someone who is poor or unknown.

That’s how I justify myself, anyway.


Supporting scientific research and education

Someone on Facebook linked to this article about the teaching of evolution in Korea.  Apparently, two icons of evolution will be removed from the updated textbooks: Archaeopteryx (spelled it right on my first try!) and the series of horse transitional fossils.

The article claims that the move is due to pressure from a Christian organization and the article tries to show how the education of evolution is being diminished, but also explains that the series of whale transitional fossils will be added so I am not sure how much of a difference there is.


Tackling Veg*n Stereotypes – Vegetarian Dogma

Tackling Veg*n Stereotypes

People who are new to the idea of veganism will inevitably ask questions, and bravo to them. They may ask why you don’t eat meat or how long you’ve been vegan. Then there are the more annoying questions which require more composure, essentially those which brush up against stereotypes like, where do you get your protein or how do you know plants don’t have feelings too?


How A Healthy Diet Could Save Your Heart

An article in Time magazine claims that fruits and veggies can halt people’s genetic predispositions to heart problems. For vegetarians and health conscious eaters, it may come as no surprise to hear that fruits and vegetables are good for your heart, but scientists consider this study scientifically interesting because the findings suggest that we don’t need to fall victim to bad genes.


Lunar Eclipse, Dec. 10

Most of these photos were taken from the roof of my apartment.  I zoomed in as tightly as I could but also cropped the photos on my computer and dimmed the exposure somewhat.  I think the blurriest ones were taken using the ‘automatic’ setting, while the clearer ones were taken using the ‘low light’ setting.  The whole thing made me long for my film camera where I could better adjust shutter speed and f-stop.

Because the whole post is just glowing blobs on a black background, I have placed some of the images after the jump so less interested visitors don’t get too bored.


The dinosaur museum in Goseong (and more)

Hi there!  Long time, no read.

I attempted the Nanowrimo project last month (the goal is to write 50,000 words- a novel – in one month) and didn’t get very far.  Still, that was the number one thing I was to do, so if I wasnt doing it, I couldn’t do things lower on the list either.

Anyway, I’m back.

December third was our wedding anniversary so like any middle-aged couple with a child, we did child-friendly stuff.  Heck, we all loved the dinosaur museum!

I sure didn’t love the trip to the museum.  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been suffering from headaches occurring roughly every other day.  First, I went to a dentist but he found no problems.  Then I went to a hospital and I learned my cold has progressed to sinusitis and the infection in a sinus cavity has been causing my headaches.


odd and end

I’m travelling, so a long post is difficult.  Still, two newspaper articles caught my attention.

The Korea Times is telling us that astrologers don’t expect to find alien life in the next twenty years.  Really?  Astrologers?

The second article is from the Herald and describes Park Tae-hwan’s swimming results.  The article seems concerned that he is not winning golds in every event he swims in.  I understand that all involved want him to win gold every time but at his level the Olympic winner is often the one who seriously competes least.
