Rationality and Risk

When I was younger I was enrolled in a swimming program at a local youth center. I was terrible at swimming, and I really didn’t have the capacity to float (I still don’t). When it came time to dive into the deep end, all the kids would happily line up to the edge and jump in, come out of the pool, and race back to the end of the line to do it again. Meanwhile, I stood quietly in line, shaking with cold, teeth chattering, lips blue. I dreaded that plunge. I let everyone go ahead of me in the line until the class was over and my skin was dry. I failed swim class twice that way.

The Speech Contest

The Speech contest : I can certainly understand the point of view of the writer, it seems all so absurd and out of whack.  Why in hell are there these Speech contests and why are they becoming more and more important.  Yes, they are.

“Essays spoken out loud”, there is a certain eloquence required to do that successfully.  I have said it before, the value of the mother is reflected by the value the child, which in Korea means the Academic success of their offspring.  How to show off their success but by providing a forum (tests, contests, …) so mothers can show off their kids ability.

MORE THAN ANYONE COULD EVER POSSIBLY WANT

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It was 1983 when Costco first came into my life. The timing couldn’t have been better. After all, I was a rambunctious twelve year old living in a largish family of American consumers and, like it or not, was becoming self-actualized as one myself. I was finally old enough to where a shopping trip didn’t require a toy section or a bank of quarter-fed video games. I could now truly appreciate the orgiastic wonder of the experience, and Costco offered it up like a drug.

Jungang Park

Ever wonder about the thing-on-the-hill above Daesindong?  A tower like structure poking above the tree line, with a Korea flag alongside it, can be seen from the neighbourhood, and even from parts of downtown Nampo.  It just so happens to be a memorial park perched in one of the best spots in Busan.

Set on the crest of Daecheong Mountain, Jungang Park is south facing, commanding impressive views of Nampodong, and across the harbor to the new bridge to Yeongdo.  This vista helps to illustrate how Busan is carved up into sections by the mountains that have gifted the city its name.

If you go down to zoo coffee today, you’re sure of a big surprise…!  Well, when I go into a coffee shop, I don’t expect to see stuffed zoo animal toys everywhere…even if it is called zoo coffee.

 


Government Influences

The different ministries will determine the legal framework in which you can provide your services.  But they do spot checks.

There are health and safety measures you need to keep in order.  For instance, fire extinguishers, escape routes, and those things.  The Fire department comes once a year to make sure all is in place.
