    Sam RoNovember 2, 2015The global economy is slowing, and the world's "canary in the coal mine" has confirmed it. South Korean exports plunged 15.8% in October from a year ago. This was the largest decline of the year, and it was notably worse than the 14.5% decline expected by economists. Why Korean exports matter Economists look to Korean exports because they are the world's imports. Major traded goods are as varied as automobiles, petrochemicals, and electronics such as PCs and mobile devices. Because this report is the first monthly set of hard economic numbers — as opposed to soft-sentiment-based reports...

    Haircare Business Booms as Stressed Koreans Go Bald The market for haircare products is growing rapidly as over 10 million people suffer from hair loss. From wigs to potions that claim to make hair grow back, the industry is raking in the money.

Hi-Mo, the nation's leading wig manufacturer, posted sales of W66.7 billion last year (US$1=W1,161).

The agencies often declassify and digitize back issues of these magazines for the public. The articles are a wealth of weird, wonderful and fascinating takes on historic and current events written by people who have access to secret information not privy to the public. A recently declassified article from a 2000 issue of Cryptologic Quarterly is a doozy.

    The Korea Times ^ | 2015-09-24 | Jun Ji-hye
    Concerns are growing that the KF-X project to develop indigenous fighter jets may not go forward as scheduled due to the failure to receive four core technologies on F-35 stealth fighters from Lockheed Martin. The Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) said that the nation will push for cooperation with other foreign firms or autonomously develop the technologies. However, a DAPA official said Thursday that this would consequently delay the 8.5 trillion won project, codenamed KF-X. Lawmakers on the National Assembly Defense Committee and defense watchers said the failure to receive the four would cause a rise in production costs as...

    During U.S. President Barack Obamas speech on Wednesday regarding a new government initiative to bring high speed internet access to low-income groups, the topic of South Koreas education system came up. In South Korea they pay their teachers the way they pay their doctors, he said in front of an audience at Durant High School in Durant, Okla. They consider education to be at the highest wrung of the professions. The reason it came up at all had to do with South Koreas widespread high speed internet access especially in the citys capital of Seoul. Obama voiced a similar statement...

    Young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has executed 70 officials since taking power in late 2011 in a "reign of terror" that far exceeds the bloodshed of his dictator father's early rule, South Korean officials said Thursday. South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se, at a forum in Seoul, compared Kim Jong Un's 70 executions with those of his late father, Kim Jong Il, who he said executed about 10 officials during his first years in power.

    It has been claimed the chief architect of Pyongyang Airport was executed by North Korea's totalitarian leader Kim Jong-un because he disliked his designs. Ma Won-chun, who was North Korea's director of the Designing Department of the National Defence Commission, vanished last year and was allegedly executed in November. This coincided with a report the same month explaining how the fearsome ruler was dissatisfied with the construction of Terminal 2 at the country's capital city.

    North Korea marked the 65th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War on Thursday with a 100,000-strong rally in Pyongyang's Kim Il Sung Stadium, and a statement condemning the "fatty monster US imperialists". The "Pyongyang Mass Rally on the Day of the Struggle Against the US," was a carefully orchestrated display of angry speeches, fist-pumping and calls for blood revenge. The rally was just one event in what it officially known as "Struggle Against US Imperialism Month", during which North Koreans visit war museums and attend gatherings denouncing the evils of the United States. North Korea also issued a...

    Adolf Hitler started World War II by attacking Poland on September 1, 1939. Nazi Germany moved only after it had already remilitarized the Rhineland, absorbed Austria and dismantled Czechoslovakia. Before the outbreak of the war, Hitler's new Third Reich had created the largest German-speaking nation in European history. Well before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Imperial Japanese government had redrawn the map of Asia and the Pacific. Japan had occupied or annexed Indochina, Korea, Manchuria and Taiwan, in addition to swaths of coastal China. Attacking Hawaii, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Indonesia was merely the logical 1941 follow-up...

    Strength. That’s the first word that comes to mind when most of us think about 3D printing in metal. And expense is usually the second–but when it comes to fixing up a nation’s fighter jet, thrift is most likely not an issue. And if you were up against a constant adversary like North Korea, you’d want the best, most secure repairs possible for the main fleet’s F-15K fighter jet–especially if you were the one flying it. When it came to the attention of the South Korean Air Force powers that they needed to modify and repair two high-powered turbine components...

    In a bar in Seouls upmarket Gangnam district this week, music was blasting from the speakers and Harry Potter played on a giant flat-screen television; but the electronic darts board and kung fu video game stands were bereft of customers, and all but one of the tables were empty. The barman had a simple answer for the unusual lack of business: Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (Mers). South Korea on Friday reported three more deaths from Mers, in what has become the largest outbreak of the virus outside Saudi Arabia, with more than a dozen deaths in the past few weeks...
  • China hospital ballot to decide who treats Mers patient

    Nurses at a hospital in China have been reportedly drawing lots to determine who should treat a patient with Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (Mers). The hospital, in the southern city of Huizhou, said the ballot was arranged because there were too many volunteers to treat the South Korean man. But posts on social media suggest many were reluctant to take on the task. The virus has a death rate of 27%, according to the World Health Organization. The sick man was named as China's first Mers case last week, after travelling to the country from South Korea, via Hong Kong....
