  • Myanmar's military extends state of national emergency for six months..."Preparing for the election"
    Bloomberg reported that the Myanmar military will extend the national emergency period for six months until February 1, 2023 on the grounds of election preparation.    According to the news agency, U MyintSwe approved a request for an emergency extension of military coup leader Min Aung Hlaing at a meeting of the Defense Security Committee in Naypyidaw, during which he discussed activities and current political situations.   "We need more time to prepare for the election to fit the new election system.And the people need to be widely educated about it," Chief Commander Min Aung Hlaingtold at state-run MRTV.  On February 1 last year, Myanmar's military staged a coup, claiming that there was injustice in the November 2020 general election, in which the National League for Democracy (NLD) led by Aung San Suu Kyi won a landslide victory, and declared a one-year emergency. At that time, the military promised to punish those responsible for irregularities in the general elections and to hand over power to the people by holding a new general election after the emergency. According to this statement, he had to hold a general election in February this year, but in January, heextended the national emergency for another six months. Under Myanmar's constitution, the emergency could be extended for six months on two occasions.  During the national emergency, the military can "legally" suppress democratic forces. According to the ‘Assistance Association for Political Prisoners’,established by exiled Myanmar activists, the military government recently conducted its first capital punishment in 30 years against four activists known to be close to Suu Kyi's national adviser, and 2,100 civilians have died since the coup.  Meanwhile, Suu Kyi, who was arrested after the coup, was indicted on about 10 charges, including violation of COVID-19 quarantine measures, instigation and bribery. If Suu Kyi is convicted in future trials in connection with all charges, she is expected to be sentenced up to 100 years in prison.

  • "Aftermath of COVID-19 lockdown, Macao casino sales in July are the lowest ever"
      Bloomberg News reported on the 1st that casino sales in Macao reached an all-time low last month in the aftermath of the urban blockade following the spread of COVID-19.  According to the Macao Gambling Inspection and Coordination Bureau (GICB), casino industry sales fell 95% to $49 millionlast month, the lowest level since related statistics began in 2009.  This is above the expert's forecast of a 97% decrease, but it is still 98% less than the level before COVID-19.  In Macao, casinos are responsible for 80% of government tax revenue.  Following February 2020, which was the early days of COVID-19, the Macao government againsuspended casino operations early last month by taking measures to block the city from spreading COVID-19.  The Chinese border blockade is maintained, and a negative certificate of COVID is requiredwhen entering casinos or restaurants.   Bloomberg pointed out that although Macao's casino industry is stretching again, it is difficult to expect a meaningful recovery in sales as it is not easy for the main customers to visit, who are mostly Chinese.    In the aftermath of the strict ZERO-COVID policy, Macao has handed over the "Throne" position of the world casino, which has been maintained since 2006, to Las Vegas.  Sanford Bernstein, an analyst at market information provider Vitaly Umanskysaid border control is stifling the recovery of the Macao casino industry.    Bernstein added that the strengthening of the crackdown on illegal gambling by Chinese authorities since late last year is also a negative factor for the Macao casino industry.

  • Raid on Ukrainian Kievin 54 days
      Russia resumed missile strikes on Ukraine's capital, Kiev and other major cities in 54 days. It is believed that the Russia has resumed air strikes in the rear area due to strong counterattacks in Donbas and the southern part of the main front by Ukraine. Ukrainian troops launched a major counterattack on the southern state of Kherzon using U.S.-backed weapons.   According to AP, the Ukrainian capital of Kiev was attacked by a Russian missile. "The infrastructure of the Vyshhorod in the Kiev region has been attacked," said OleksiyKuleba, governor of Kiev.Vyshhorod is a village about 20km north of Kiev city center.   Along with Kiev, major northern cities such as Chernihiv and Zhytomyr were also attacked. "A number of missiles have been fired from Belarus," said Governor. It is estimated that about 25 missiles were fired from Belarus and airlifted outside Kiev, Chernihiv and Zhytomyr.   Russia has recently stopped air strikes in areas near Kiev, focusing on the eastern Donbas region and the southern front, but it is believed that it has launched another air strike to disrupt the rear area as Ukrainian troops hit back in the southern region.  In particular, the Ukrainian military is considered to be launching a strong counterattack by blocking Russia's key supply routes based on the U.S.-backed HIMARS. In particular, the recovery operation is known to have begun in earnest as it succeeded in isolating Russian troops in the Kherson area.   The British Ministry of Defence said in a statement posted on Twitter that "Ukrainian counterattack in Kherson is gaining momentum." Ukraine used new long-range artillery to damage at least three bridges on the Dnipro River, where Russia relies on supply of controlled areas.And Russia's 49th unit is stationed on the west coast of the Dnipro River, which seems to be very vulnerable.  If Ukrainian troops recover the Kherzon area through a counterattack, the aspect of war is expected to change significantly. The Kherson area is a key point connecting Donbas and Crimea. Therefore, if the Ukrainian army takes over this region again, the war is expected to be prolonged as it is more likely to restore the entire territory.

  • The international community condemns Russia’s attack on Ukrainian port.
      Despite the conclusion of the grain export negotiations through the Black Sea, voices of international condemnation are pouring in against Russia for attacking the infrastructure of Odessa, one of the major grain export ports in Ukraine.  According to AFP, U.N. Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq said in a statement that U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the attack at the port of Odessa, Ukraine.  Haq stressed that the agreement between Russia, Ukraine and Turkey must be fully implemented.   On the previous day, the United Nations, along with Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey, signed a final agreement on grain exports through the Black Sea. In order to solve the global food shortage, the government has decided to set up a safe route for opening the way to export grain and fertilizer from Ukraine andRussia.  However, the international community has been criticizing Russia for bombing missiles at the infrastructure of Odessa, which was one of the grain export ports that were supposed to guarantee safe routes.The attack was committed just after a day since the agreement was reached in Istanbul.  Rousseff Borrell, a senior foreign and security policy representative in charge of EU foreign policy, said "The EU condemns Russian missile strikes on the port of Odessa." "Once again, it shows Russia's complete disregard for international law and commitment."British Foreign Minister Liz Truss stressed that Russian attack is proof that Russian President Vladimir Putin could not be trusted.  Turkish Defense Minister HulushiAkar, who served as a mediator between Russia and Ukraine with the United Nations, also told the state-run Anadolu news agency that "This incident really worries us."  However, despite such concerns from the international community, concerns are growing over the possibility that the grain export agreement itself may fail.

  • Trump "only announcement left to run for president"...A 2024 return match with Biden?
        Former U.S. President Donald Trump said he has decided to run for president in 2024 and is considering whether to announce his candidacy before or after the upcomingmidterm election in November. There have been reports thatTrump is willing to run for the next presidential election, but the possibility has increased further as he himself revealed it in an interview.   "I am very confident that I will win if I decide to run" Trump said in an online edition of New York Magazine published on the 14th, adding, "I think I have already made a decision." There is nothing more to consider."   Trump expressed his thoughts on the next presidential election by saying, "My big decision is to make it before or afterthe midterm election." He responded to an interview by phone in Alaska, where he visited for the campaign on the 9th.   Trump said it would be advantageous for Republican presidential hopefuls to give up running if he announceshis candidacy early. "If Ideclare to run, many others will not even be able to run," Trump said. "If they run, there will be a backlash. People want me to run.”  For now, Trump is leading various polls among Republican presidential candidates. According to Real Clear Politics poll average, Trump's approval rating is 53%, more than double that of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (20.5%). Trump has been discussing with his aides how to announce his candidacy this summer, the Washington Post said. Citing multiple sources, WP saidTrump is considering announcing his candidacy in September. Another source said it is 70 percent likely to declare before the November midterm elections.   On the other hand, some close aides are advisingTrump that he does not need to rush to announce his candidacy as he still has great influence in the Republican Party.  IfTrump announces his presidential bid, there is a possibility that he will face President Joe Biden again. President Biden and the Democratic camp still maintain their position thatBiden will seek re-election.    Trump plans to give a public speech in Washington, DC for the first time since his retirement.

  • 리더스타임즈 진로진학탐방 - 고려대학교 산업공학과
      Q. 고려대학교 신소재공학부는? A. 신소재공학부는 다른 모든 공학의 근본을 잡아주는 분야라고 생각합니다. 자연과학 없이는 공학이 존재할 수 없는 것처럼, 신소재공학부는 재료의 특성을 여러 방면으로 발전시켜 공학기술의 효율을 개선시켜주고 한계치를 높여주는 아주 중요한 역할을 하기 때문에 어떤 공학기술에서든 신소재공학의 연구 없이는 혁신적인 발전이 어렵다고 생각합니다. 쉽게 설명해보자면, 아무리 뛰어난 초음속전투기 기술력과 엔진을 만든다고 하더라도 그 속력과 저항을 버틸 수 있는 기체를 만들기 위한 소재 연구와 엔진의 열과 그 출력을 버텨주고 만들어줄 소재 연구 없이는 그 기술을 실현할 수 없습니다. 고려대학교 신소재공학부는 과거 재료공학과와 금속공학과가 합쳐져 만들어진 학부로, 훨씬 더 다방면으로 연구하고 진출해 나갈 수 있는 기회의 창의 학부라고 생각합니다.   Q. 학부 내 전공 구분은 어떻게 됩니까? A. 신소재공학부는 학부 내에서는 전공이 구분되지 않고 학생들마다 더 관심 있는 분야의 수업을 들어서 본인의 진로를 스스로 정하는 과정을 거칩니다. 명확한 전공을 보여주지 못할 수도 있다는 단점으로 보일 수도 있지만 이는 사실 본인의 전공에 국한되지 않고 신소재공학부 특성상 다양한 분야를 함께 공부함으로써 시야를 더 넓힐 수 있다는 장점이 있습니다. 흔히 신소재공학부의 커리큘럼은 크게 분류하자면 반도체, 배터리, 금속, 디스플레이, 세라믹, 바이오 및 고분자 등이 있습니다. 그리고 그 커리큘럼에 맞게 다방면의 교수님들이 다양한 과목을 강의하고 계셔서 진로 선택의 폭이 굉장히 넓습니다. 그러다보니 다른 여러 공학 분야와 겹치는 부분이 존재하기도 하는데, 다른 공학 분야와의 차이점을 위해 예를 들어 설명하자면, ‘반도체’의 경우에는 전자전기공학부의 전공분야이기도 한데, 차이점은 전기전자공학부는 반도체의 회로와 설계를 연구하고 신소재공학부는 반도체의 원리와 효율 및 한계치 향상을 연구합니다.   Q. 졸업 후의 진로는 어떻게 나뉘는 편입니까? A. 대부분의 학생들이 크게는 대학원, 취업을 선택합니다. 신소재공학부는 과목특성상 다양한 분야를 골라서 배울 수 있기 때문에 선택의 폭과 시야가 굉장히 넓다는 장점이 있지만 이는 반대로 정해진 시간과 커리큘럼 내에 많은 분야를 배우기 때문에 넓게 배우지만 깊게 배우는 데에는 한계가 있다는 단점때문에 본인의 관심 전공분야를 더욱 더 전문적으로 연구하기를 희망하는 많은 학생들은 대부분 대학원으로 진학하려는 경향이 있어 타 과보다 대학원 진학비율이 조금 높은 편입니다. 그렇다고해서 모든 학생들이 대학원으로 진학하지는 않습니다. 대학원 진학을 희망하지 않고 바로 취업의 길로 가는 학생들도 비슷하게 많습니다. 대부분은 삼성전자, SK하이닉스 등의 대기업으로 가고 공기업으로 가는 사람들도 종종 있습니다. 또한 많지는 않지만 학부졸업으로 연구직으로 들어가는 사람들도 있고 기업에 취직하여 근무하다가 중간에 자신의 전공분야를 더욱 연구하고자 하여 다시 대학원으로 진학하는 분들도 보았습니다. 이외에도 전공분야를 활용하여 변리사 등의 전문직을 준비하는 사람들도 있고 로스쿨로 진학하여 대형 로펌 등에 들어가 대기업과 계약한 채로 근무하고 계시는 변호사를 하고 계시는 분들도 계십니다.   Q. 본교 신소재공학부만의 특별한 문화나 행사가 있습니까? A. 고려대학교는 타대학의 추종을 불허할 정도로 선후배와 동기들간의 유대관계가 굉장히 돈독한 학교로 유명합니다. “선배가 이끌어주고 후배가 밀어주고 동기가 함께 간다는 대학교”라는 말이 있을 정도로 선후배간의 유대관계가 굉장히 끈끈합니다. 저희 학교는 ‘뻔선뻔후’라는 문화가 있는데, 학번의 뒷자리가 같은 사람들끼리 특별한 유대관계를 맺고 다양한 학번의 선후배들과 쉽게 친해져 다같이 밥도 먹고 선배들에게 취업정보도 공유 받고 이를 또 후배에게 물려주면서 도움도 주고받을 수 있는 좋은 문화가 있습니다.

  • WP, “Ukraine and Russia could face a long-term without
      The Washington Post reported that Ukraine and Russia are expected to continue the long confrontation without an end of war, just like the situation on the Korean Peninsula.  The WP said in an expert analysis on the 17th (local time) that Western countries, including the United States, are preparing for a prolonged war in Ukraine.  The media explained, "Since South and North Korea signed a ceasefire agreement in 1953, the war has not been officially concluded so far, and the level of conflict sometimes rises at the inter-Korean border where heavy armed soldiers are deployed."  "If the confrontation between the current occupied area of Russia and the rest of the Ukrainian military control area is prolonged, there is a possibility that a structure similar to the inter-Korean confrontation on the Korean Peninsula will be formed between the two regions," he analyzed.  WP said it may be best for Ukraine's military to withstand a deadlock that does not actually fall behind the Russian military in terms of size and power. "It is not easy for Ukraine to defeat the Russian military in the eastern Donbas region where the recent fierce battle took place."  Mark Millie, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently analyzed, "Even if Russia suffers from instability in its command system, falling morale, and military problems, the situation in eastern Ukraine is more inclined toward Russia."  Russia is gradually expanding its occupation area by destroying major Ukrainian bases with long-range missiles after failing to occupy Kiiu in the early stages of the war and changing its goal to "targeting Donbas."   As a result, the West seems to be preparing for a prolonged war by constantly sending aid supplies to prevent Ukraine from losing. Regarding this, WP analyzed that Ukraine's victory is a long way off, but it is an effort to prevent the worst possible outcome if Ukraine loses.  Chicago International Affairs Committee Chairman Ivor Dalder, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO, told WP, "What is given to the U.S. in a deadlock is only a cool option. It is to support Ukraine to continue to bleed, or to cut off support and endure Russia’s victory'. But cutting off support is like throwing Ukraine into a pack of wolves."  The WP said the U.S. has no choice but to continue to provide support to Ukraine despite side effects such as a global economic recession and food crisis to prevent Russian President Vladimir Putin from crossing Ukraine and neighboring NATO members.

  • Raid on Ukrainian Kievin 54 days
      Russia resumed missile strikes on Ukraine's capital, Kiev and other major cities in 54 days. It is believed that the Russia has resumed air strikes in the rear area due to strong counterattacks in Donbas and the southern part of the main front by Ukraine. Ukrainian troops launched a major counterattack on the southern state of Kherzon using U.S.-backed weapons.   According to AP, the Ukrainian capital of Kiev was attacked by a Russian missile. "The infrastructure of the Vyshhorod in the Kiev region has been attacked," said OleksiyKuleba, governor of Kiev.Vyshhorod is a village about 20km north of Kiev city center.   Along with Kiev, major northern cities such as Chernihiv and Zhytomyr were also attacked. "A number of missiles have been fired from Belarus," said Governor. It is estimated that about 25 missiles were fired from Belarus and airlifted outside Kiev, Chernihiv and Zhytomyr.   Russia has recently stopped air strikes in areas near Kiev, focusing on the eastern Donbas region and the southern front, but it is believed that it has launched another air strike to disrupt the rear area as Ukrainian troops hit back in the southern region.  In particular, the Ukrainian military is considered to be launching a strong counterattack by blocking Russia's key supply routes based on the U.S.-backed HIMARS. In particular, the recovery operation is known to have begun in earnest as it succeeded in isolating Russian troops in the Kherson area.   The British Ministry of Defence said in a statement posted on Twitter that "Ukrainian counterattack in Kherson is gaining momentum." Ukraine used new long-range artillery to damage at least three bridges on the Dnipro River, where Russia relies on supply of controlled areas.And Russia's 49th unit is stationed on the west coast of the Dnipro River, which seems to be very vulnerable.  If Ukrainian troops recover the Kherzon area through a counterattack, the aspect of war is expected to change significantly. The Kherson area is a key point connecting Donbas and Crimea. Therefore, if the Ukrainian army takes over this region again, the war is expected to be prolonged as it is more likely to restore the entire territory.

  • The international community condemns Russia’s attack on Ukrainian port.
      Despite the conclusion of the grain export negotiations through the Black Sea, voices of international condemnation are pouring in against Russia for attacking the infrastructure of Odessa, one of the major grain export ports in Ukraine.  According to AFP, U.N. Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq said in a statement that U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the attack at the port of Odessa, Ukraine.  Haq stressed that the agreement between Russia, Ukraine and Turkey must be fully implemented.   On the previous day, the United Nations, along with Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey, signed a final agreement on grain exports through the Black Sea. In order to solve the global food shortage, the government has decided to set up a safe route for opening the way to export grain and fertilizer from Ukraine andRussia.  However, the international community has been criticizing Russia for bombing missiles at the infrastructure of Odessa, which was one of the grain export ports that were supposed to guarantee safe routes.The attack was committed just after a day since the agreement was reached in Istanbul.  Rousseff Borrell, a senior foreign and security policy representative in charge of EU foreign policy, said "The EU condemns Russian missile strikes on the port of Odessa." "Once again, it shows Russia's complete disregard for international law and commitment."British Foreign Minister Liz Truss stressed that Russian attack is proof that Russian President Vladimir Putin could not be trusted.  Turkish Defense Minister HulushiAkar, who served as a mediator between Russia and Ukraine with the United Nations, also told the state-run Anadolu news agency that "This incident really worries us."  However, despite such concerns from the international community, concerns are growing over the possibility that the grain export agreement itself may fail.

  • Trump "only announcement left to run for president"...A 2024 return match with Biden?
        Former U.S. President Donald Trump said he has decided to run for president in 2024 and is considering whether to announce his candidacy before or after the upcomingmidterm election in November. There have been reports thatTrump is willing to run for the next presidential election, but the possibility has increased further as he himself revealed it in an interview.   "I am very confident that I will win if I decide to run" Trump said in an online edition of New York Magazine published on the 14th, adding, "I think I have already made a decision." There is nothing more to consider."   Trump expressed his thoughts on the next presidential election by saying, "My big decision is to make it before or afterthe midterm election." He responded to an interview by phone in Alaska, where he visited for the campaign on the 9th.   Trump said it would be advantageous for Republican presidential hopefuls to give up running if he announceshis candidacy early. "If Ideclare to run, many others will not even be able to run," Trump said. "If they run, there will be a backlash. People want me to run.”  For now, Trump is leading various polls among Republican presidential candidates. According to Real Clear Politics poll average, Trump's approval rating is 53%, more than double that of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (20.5%). Trump has been discussing with his aides how to announce his candidacy this summer, the Washington Post said. Citing multiple sources, WP saidTrump is considering announcing his candidacy in September. Another source said it is 70 percent likely to declare before the November midterm elections.   On the other hand, some close aides are advisingTrump that he does not need to rush to announce his candidacy as he still has great influence in the Republican Party.  IfTrump announces his presidential bid, there is a possibility that he will face President Joe Biden again. President Biden and the Democratic camp still maintain their position thatBiden will seek re-election.    Trump plans to give a public speech in Washington, DC for the first time since his retirement.

  • 리더스타임즈 진로진학탐방 - 서울대학교 사회교육과
      Q. 서울대학교 사회교육과는? A. 서울대학교 단과대학 중 중ㆍ고등학교 교사를 양성하는 사범대학에 속한 학과로서 특히 사회과 교사가 되기 위해 일반사회 과목인 경제, 사회문화, 정치와 법을 집중적으로 탐구하는 학과입니다.   Q. 졸업 후의 진로는 어떻게 나뉘는 편입니까? A. 저희 과 특성상 교사로 진로를 결정하는 경우가 많지만, 사범대학의 다른 학과들보다는 전공 과목 특성상 여러 분야에 걸쳐 있다 보니 로스쿨, 취직 등 굉장히 다양한 갈래로 진로를 펼쳐나가고 있습니다.   Q. 본교 사회교육과만의 특별한 문화나 행사가 있습니까? A. 신입 학번이 조별로 나뉘어 요리를 하고 그 요리를 조교님들이 평가하는 사회교육과 요리대회가 있었는데 현재는 코로나로 인해 잠정 중단된 상태입니다.   Q. 입학을 위해 준비해두면 좋은 것이 있습니까? 본인만의 입시 팁을 주자면? A. 수시, 정시 모두 면접이 있다 보니 면접을 잘 대비하는 것이 아무래도 중요할 것입니다. 면접을 위해서는 여러 이슈를 접하면서 그 이슈에 대해 생각해보는 연습이 필요하다고 생각합니다. 또한, 수준 높은 도서 하나를 지정해 그 책의 내용을 모든 상황에 적용하는 연습도 필요한 것 같습니다. 저 같은 경우에도 ‘죄와 벌’을 굉장히 흥미롭게 읽고 집중해서 읽었기에 면접에서 ‘죄와 벌’의 내용을 사례로 굉장히 논리적으로 말을 할 수 있었습니다.   Q. 미래의 후배들에게 하고 싶은 말이 있습니까? A. 교사를 꿈꾸는 후배들은 교사도 존경받아 마땅하고 미래의 인재들을 키우는 훌륭한 직업이니 흔들리지 말고 자신의 꿈을 밀고 나갔으면 좋겠고 혹시 교사에 뜻이 없는 친구들은 굉장히 다양한 길이 열려 있으니 개방적인 마인드로 많은 경험을 하며 자신의 길을 잘 찾았으면 좋겠습니다.

  • "Spreading fake news, you'll be caught." Criticizing war in Russia leads to "Seven years in prison."
      A district delegate in Moscow, Russia, was sentenced to seven years in prison for criticizing the invasion of Ukraine.  According to the TASS News Agency on the 10th, the Moscow District Court sentenced Alexei Gorinov (60)for spreading false information about the Russian military and undermining the military's trust.  In April, Gorinov was arrested for saying that Russia "must pay silent tribute to the victims" or "act against the neighboring sovereign state" over its invasion of Ukraine.   The charges were 'criticism of special operations' and 'production of fake news'. Russia claims that they are carrying out a "special military operation" rather than invading Ukraine.    Currently, the Russian government is naming the invasion of Ukraine a "special military operation." Since the war began, the government has revised the law to allow anyone who spreads fake newsto face up to 15 years in prison. The act of mass-producing fake news includes opposing the war or criticizing the government.   Gorinov became the first personsentenced to prison under the revised law. But he is not the only one accused of producing fake news after criticizing the invasion of Ukraine.  Opposition politician Ilya Yasin was arrested by police in March after publicly opposing Russia's invasion of Ukraine, saying on his Twitter account, "Russians and Ukrainians should not be killed each other."    Police have also arrested an employee of the broadcasting station who broke into the evening news of Russian state-run broadcaster and opposed the Ukraine's war.  Political commentator Tatiana Stanovaya said authorities were warning opponents.   "The use of the term ‘war’ has become an annoyance to the authorities," he said. "It would be considered an act of terrorism and a long prison term for a political figure like Gorinov to make such a statement."
