  • 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.

  • EU summit, 6th Russian sanctions agreement,
      The leaders of EU member states agreed in principle on the 6th sanctions against Russia, including the ban on oil imports through offshore tankers, on Monday.  The agreement is generally similar to the 6th EU Commission sanctions announced on May 4, but the import of crude oil through oil tankers will be suspended by the end of this year and imports through pipelines will be maintained. The sanctions will take effect later this week after a formal approval process by the EU board.  [Crude oilsanctions]  Oil imports through oil tankers will be suspended within six months after the sanctions take effect, and petroleum products will be suspended within the year.But imports through pipelines will be maintained for the time being considering special circumstances in Hungary, which is an inland country.  Hungary will also gradually stop importing Russian crude oil if oil imports through the Hungarian-Croatian pipeline expand. As the Hungarian-Russian pipeline passed through Ukraine, a war zone, Hungary reserved its authority to implement emergency measures to respond to future supply crises.  Germany and Poland, which can import Russian oil through pipelines, voluntarily promised to stop importing oil through pipelines within the year.  If crude oil sanctions are implemented, Russian oil imports are expected to immediately fall by two-thirds and fall by about 90% within the year, contributing to Russia's massive blocking of war funds.  [Other restrictions]  The sixth sanction (draft) includes blocking access to the Swift network to Sberbank, Russia's largest bank, and expanding human sanctions such as the Russian Orthodox Patriarch and military officials related to the Bucha massacre.  On the other hand, the 6th sanctions are evaluated that Hungary's claim was fully accepted and agreed after about a month of delay in the agreement between the leaders.  In this regard, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Root stressed that all possible technical consultations on sanctions should be held first before discussing the details of the sanctions so that the seventh sanctions (draft) to be pursued in the future will not be hostage to the claims of certain member countries.

  • Korean wave in India
        The globalization of the Korean Wave, which began in the 21st centuryin earnest, is expanding its scope beyond Asia to the world. Beyond the traditionally competitive Asian market, it is gaining popularity in North America and Europe. It is natural to see BTS appears on theelectronic display at Times Square, New York and diplomats talk about the ‘squid game’ for ice breaking.    Although the Korean Wave is spreading in various countries, India has recently seen a dramatic increase in its interest. In India, the COVID-19 pandemic rather served as a catalyst for the spread of the Korean Wave.This is because the number of Netflix subscribers increased rapidly, as Indians' external activities became difficult. In fact, India was particularly far from the Korean Wave, even though it’s Asian country. This is because India had a strong cultural industry called Bollywood. However, Korea has become competitive over the past few years by investing heavily in Netflix contents, and it has gained popularity as Indians demand a variety of works other than Bollywood.    Korean contents that ranked in the top 10 on Indian Netflix includes drama ‘start-up’, ‘crash landing on you’, ‘Kingdom’, and ‘The King’. The show 'Hometown Cha-cha-cha' remained in the top 10 for weeks, and the ‘squid game’ topped Indian Netflix for the first time as Korean content, beating popular Indian drama ‘Kota Factory’ and movie ‘Thalaivii’.   Although somewhat insignificant in the past, Northeastern India has been the place whereKorean wave is traditionally popular. This is because people in this area are of Mongolian descent, which is very similar to Koreans in appearance.On top of that, Asian emotions and sophisticated urban life in Korean media have become objects of admiration for young people. In fact, theKorean Cultural Center in India holds K-POP concerts every year, and most of the participants are from the northeast.   However, the Korean Wave is spreading not only in the northeast, but also in the south. Photos of BTS are also on sale in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in southern India. It is competitively traded at about 200 won per sheet.It seems that access to the Korean Wave has expanded through YouTube and Social Network Services. In fact, there is an online fan club called 'BTS Tamilnadu A.R.M.Y.' on Twitter.    Therefore, online media such as Netflix, Twitter, and YouTube seem to have played a big role in the current spread of the Korean Wave in India. Currently, there are about 5 million Netflix subscribers in India, which is not a large number considering 1.3 billion people in India. However, this situation can be evaluated as having the potential to spread the Korean Wave exponentially in India as Netflix grows. Thanks to these changes, the Korean Wave is currently spreading throughout India, and this trend is expected to continue.   Reference: https://dream.kotra.or.kr/kotranews/cms/news/actionKotraBoardDetail.do?SITE_NO=3&MENU_ID=180&CONTENTS_NO=1&bbsGbn=243&bbsSn=243&pNttSn=191255

  • Auroville, the idealistic community. (2)
          Let's look at the specific reason why Auroville is called an ideal community and its reality.In terms of the political system, the Auroville society has realized the ideal of a democratic system of direct democracy, and has taken the form of a unanimous system until today. There were opinions that voting should be introduced as the population grew compared to the past, but the unanimous system is maintained due to concerns that voting could ignore the opinions of the few.    Economic system is also interesting. Residents of Auroville work six hours a day, 36 hours a week, and receive about 10,000 rupees a month, regardless of the type of work they do. It should be noted that this money is given as a basic income concept, and it is not given to residents with excessive incomes. In addition, residents maintain a true community-oriented society by exchanging goods and services needed for each other based on social networks, not money. It does not use the means of moneybut adopts an exchange method according to individual needs.   But Auroville has not yet achieved self-sufficiency. International organizations and countries such as the United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) support about $4 million every year, but Auroville's own profits are only about $1 million, showing a high dependency.    Auroville has a high potential for achieving self-reliance, starting with a deteriorated land and regenerating green areas in about 50 years, providing free food and education, while achieving energy independence. Therefore, if various experiments such as organic methods, appropriate technologies, and water resource protection that they are currently pursuing produce results step by step, Auroville’s economic independence can be achieved. It is interesting that Auroville is actually developing steadily in pursuit of harmony and coexistence, and it can be predicted that there is a high possibility of development as of now.    However, if the Auroville model, which pursued political and social ideal, fails to stand on its own feet with high dependence on aid even after enough time, it proves that the Auroville modelhas no choice but to be just "ideal." I hope the case of Auroville, which pursues peace and harmony, will succeed and provide new insights for modern humans suffering from excessive competition and inhumanity under neoliberalism.

  • Chapter 1: Why Millennium Tower in San Francisco is Experiencing Tilting and Sinking?
      Millennium Tower is a residential building located in 301 Mission Street, San Francisco, California, USA. Construction began in 2005 and completed in 2009. It has a total of 58 stories and a height of 197m. As of 2021, it turned out to be the 4th tallest and most expensive residential building in San Francisco. Nowadays, it is called by ‘Modern Tower of Pisa. Because this buildingis now tilting and sinking. This problem of the building triggered many other problems too. The unstable footing has occurred issues including cracks in the basement, decreasing house values and numerous legal battles. Residents complained of bubbling floors, cracked walls and large cracks in the window of 36th floor.   After constructors said the building was sinking and tilting in 2015, they first informed the problem to public in 2016. A 2016 survey revealed that the building sank about 41cm and tilted 15cm. The building is now tilted to the northwest. Furthermore, cracks have formed in the basement of the building and the pavement around the tower. In 2018, the settlement increased to 46cm, and the tilting was 36cm. In 2022, the top of the Millennium Tower is said to have tilted 66cm to the northwest.In fact, the problem of settlement is the expected result from 2005 when the groundbreaking was reached. At this time, it was expected that the building would sink by 10cm to 15cm. It is normal for skyscrapers to sink a little after completion. The design is made under this consideration, but the settlement of Millennium Tower was much more serious than expected. After the completion of the building in 2009, the foundation of the building had fallen about 25cm. When an unexpected settlement occurred, the constructor ‘Millennium Partners’ claimed that it was because a large transportation complex terminal right next the building started to excavate. However, the terminal countered that the foundation of the Millennium Tower had already fallen 25cm before the construction for terminal began.   Several factors have combined to sink the Millennium Tower. Millennium Tower is in the downtown area of San Francisco which is the area of infirm soil. Many building in downtown San Francisco (built before Millennium Tower came out) had gotten away with drilling foundation piles into the layer of Old Bay Clay, without settling too dramatically. By the way, Millennium Tower is a tall building with 58 stories build at the same area and with its heavy concrete frame.The average single-story residential home is designed to exert pressure on the subsurface about 4kg per square meter of the building footprint. This building is a concrete framework designed to impose a load of 465kg per square meter to its foundation. It’s about 100 times more than the average house. Particularly, in the case of a weak mud layer on the ground, it would be impossible to bear that much weight only with the ground surface.The pile was driven so deep that the building did not sit on the surface layer of artificial fill but rather on the dense sandy ground of Colma formation. This is quite common design in San Francisco. By the way, it’s not the dense sand that causes problems for the Millennium Tower, but what is below it. Under the Colma formation is a thick layer of Old Bay Clay. When the building was designed, project geologists predicted that it would settle for the entire life of the building about 10cm to 15cm, mainly in the Old Bay Clay layer below the bottom of the piles.Millennium Tower was designed to put more stress on the underlying Old Bay Clay than other building in the area. In construction of the tower’s basement, it required to pump water out of the surface to keep the site dry. Continuous dewatering of foundation accelerated the settlement too.

  • Auroville, the idealistic community (1).
      There is an idealistic community called Auroville near the Puducherry area on the southeastern coast of India. Combination of the French revolutionary generation who dreamed of a new future and the spiritual climate of India created this place. The name ‘Auroville’ is French. ‘Aurore’ means dawn, and ‘Ville’ means village.   Auroville, which was built in 1968 on the area of 25, is home to 2,500 people from more than 50 countries. Many people visit this place, but the population of formal residents is relatively small. It’s because new members have to serve the community for two years to become an official member.Auroville's common language is English, and dozens of people from South Korea also belong to the community. There is a clear reason why Auroville is called an idealistic community. Auroville rejects the neoliberal system adopted by most countries and aims for community and harmony. This orientation can also be found in the 1965 Declaration, which can be seen as the first official record of Auroville. In the declaration, "Auroville wants to become an international city where men and women from all over the world can live in peace and progressive harmony across all religions, politics and nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is the realization of human harmony."   In accordance with the direction above, Aurorville advocates equality through independence,freedom from avarice and religion. To realize that, members of Aurorville are provided with benefits such as housing, education, medical care and culture free of charge. There is a circular structure called Matrimandir at the center of the village. This iconic building, called the soul of Auroville, has the meaning of the "Hall of Motherhood" and is used primarily as a place for meditation. It is a suitable facility to pursue no desire and no religion.

  • Let’s get to know about a bigger world!
        San Francisco is a city where you can meet dogs everywhere. Although the number of dogs has increased a lot in Korea, it is no exaggeration to say that San Francisco has dogs wherever you go.   San Francisco is a typical dog city in the United States.In fact, the largest number of pet-related companies in the United States are located in San Francisco. As dogs are socially acceptable in most places, most facilities allow dogs to be accompanied by people.   In Golden Gate Park, which is one of the most famous places in SF,there are many dog playgrounds where you can freely play with your dogs without a leash. On weekends, it is not difficult to see many citizens taking a walkand resting on the grass with their dogs. Also, dogs can take public transportation and sometimes sit on the chair. There’s controversy that this behavior is right or not, but It is worth noting that citizens do not take this situation negatively.   Since San Francisco has a social consciousness for animal welfare, policy revisions for pets have also been made. In 2017, the city of San Francisco unanimously passed a bill that would force pet shops to sell only rescued or abandoned pets. The purpose was to prevent inhumane act of commercially breeding dogs, so-called ‘puppy mill’. And it has been successfully implemented so far.In addition, abandoned animal protection facilities are operating at a high level, thanks to a fairly high subsidies of $6.5 million per year. The unanimous passage of the bill and substantialsubsidies are result of public support.   In Korea, the number of people who love animals is increasing, and awareness of animal rights and welfare is growing.However, it is difficult to say that high level of social consciousness has been fully settled. We continuously hear news about animal abuse cases.I hope awareness of animal welfare to grow further in Korea. Significant changes can be made only when citizens reach social consensus with a common perception and awareness of the problem.

  • Successful launch of Nuri made Korea
      The South Korean launch vehicle, the Nuri (KSLV-II), was successfully launched.  Minister of Science and ICT Lee Jong-ho officially confirmed on the 21st that the Korean projectile Nuri (KSLV-II) was successfully launched and landed the satellite in the planned orbit.  The Nuri rocket was launched at 4 p.m. and successfully separated.Accordingly, the Nuri satellite and the performance verification satellite are circulating around the Earth at an altitude of about 700 kilometers from the surface and at a speed of about 7.5 kilometers per second.  Minister Lee held a briefing at the press center of the Naro Space Center in Goheung-gun, Jeollanam-do, and said, "Today, I stood at a monumental moment in Korea's history as well as Korean science and technology history."  "The Nuri, which was launched at 4 p.m. today, was put into target orbit, successfully separated the performance verification satellite and settled in orbit""We announce the success of the Nuri, a Korean-style projectile."  Minister Lee then said, "The sky of Korea has opened wide. South Korea's science and technology has made great progress."  With the successful launch of the Nuri, South Korea has become the world's seventh space powerhouse to launch a practical satellite of more than one ton into a space launch vehicle with its own technology.  Nuri is the first space launch vehicle designed and developed with pure domestic technology. South Korean researchers have developed 75-tonand 7-ton liquid fuel engines that launched satellites, as well as pairing, a cover that protects satellites mounted on projectiles.  In particular, analysts say that it has successfully demonstrated the performance of 75-ton engines that can be used continuously for the development of large and small projectiles in the future, creating a foothold for future space development  Earlier, Nuri's first-stage separation, pairing separation, and second-stage separation were normal at the time of the first launch on October 21 last year, but failed to settle the satellite mimic in low orbit as the third-stage engine ended early combustion.  After scrutinizing the problems of the three-stage rocket identified in the first launch, the Korea Aerospace Research Institute took technical improvement measures in the second launch and led the launch to a success.    The third launch of the Nuri is scheduled for the first half of next year.

As the Hungarian-Russian pipeline passed through Ukraine, a war zone, Hungary reserved its authority to implement emergency measures to respond to future supply crises.  Germany and Poland, which can import Russian oil through pipelines, voluntarily promised to stop importing oil through pipelines within the year.  If crude oil sanctions are implemented, Russian oil imports are expected to immediately fall by two-thirds and fall by about 90% within the year, contributing to Russia's massive blocking of war funds.  [Other restrictions]  The sixth sanction (draft) includes blocking access to the Swift network to Sberbank, Russia's largest bank, and expanding human sanctions such as the Russian Orthodox Patriarch and military officials related to the Bucha massacre.  On the other hand, the 6th sanctions are evaluated that Hungary's claim was fully accepted and agreed after about a month of delay in the agreement between the leaders.  In this regard, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Root stressed that all possible technical consultations on sanctions should be held first before discussing the details of the sanctions so that the seventh sanctions (draft) to be pursued in the future will not be hostage to the claims of certain member countries.

  • Korean wave in India
        The globalization of the Korean Wave, which began in the 21st centuryin earnest, is expanding its scope beyond Asia to the world. Beyond the traditionally competitive Asian market, it is gaining popularity in North America and Europe. It is natural to see BTS appears on theelectronic display at Times Square, New York and diplomats talk about the ‘squid game’ for ice breaking.    Although the Korean Wave is spreading in various countries, India has recently seen a dramatic increase in its interest. In India, the COVID-19 pandemic rather served as a catalyst for the spread of the Korean Wave.This is because the number of Netflix subscribers increased rapidly, as Indians' external activities became difficult. In fact, India was particularly far from the Korean Wave, even though it’s Asian country. This is because India had a strong cultural industry called Bollywood. However, Korea has become competitive over the past few years by investing heavily in Netflix contents, and it has gained popularity as Indians demand a variety of works other than Bollywood.    Korean contents that ranked in the top 10 on Indian Netflix includes drama ‘start-up’, ‘crash landing on you’, ‘Kingdom’, and ‘The King’. The show 'Hometown Cha-cha-cha' remained in the top 10 for weeks, and the ‘squid game’ topped Indian Netflix for the first time as Korean content, beating popular Indian drama ‘Kota Factory’ and movie ‘Thalaivii’.   Although somewhat insignificant in the past, Northeastern India has been the place whereKorean wave is traditionally popular. This is because people in this area are of Mongolian descent, which is very similar to Koreans in appearance.On top of that, Asian emotions and sophisticated urban life in Korean media have become objects of admiration for young people. In fact, theKorean Cultural Center in India holds K-POP concerts every year, and most of the participants are from the northeast.   However, the Korean Wave is spreading not only in the northeast, but also in the south. Photos of BTS are also on sale in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, in southern India. It is competitively traded at about 200 won per sheet.It seems that access to the Korean Wave has expanded through YouTube and Social Network Services. In fact, there is an online fan club called 'BTS Tamilnadu A.R.M.Y.' on Twitter.    Therefore, online media such as Netflix, Twitter, and YouTube seem to have played a big role in the current spread of the Korean Wave in India. Currently, there are about 5 million Netflix subscribers in India, which is not a large number considering 1.3 billion people in India. However, this situation can be evaluated as having the potential to spread the Korean Wave exponentially in India as Netflix grows. Thanks to these changes, the Korean Wave is currently spreading throughout India, and this trend is expected to continue.   Reference: https://dream.kotra.or.kr/kotranews/cms/news/actionKotraBoardDetail.do?SITE_NO=3&MENU_ID=180&CONTENTS_NO=1&bbsGbn=243&bbsSn=243&pNttSn=191255

  • Auroville, the idealistic community. (2)
          Let's look at the specific reason why Auroville is called an ideal community and its reality.In terms of the political system, the Auroville society has realized the ideal of a democratic system of direct democracy, and has taken the form of a unanimous system until today. There were opinions that voting should be introduced as the population grew compared to the past, but the unanimous system is maintained due to concerns that voting could ignore the opinions of the few.    Economic system is also interesting. Residents of Auroville work six hours a day, 36 hours a week, and receive about 10,000 rupees a month, regardless of the type of work they do. It should be noted that this money is given as a basic income concept, and it is not given to residents with excessive incomes. In addition, residents maintain a true community-oriented society by exchanging goods and services needed for each other based on social networks, not money. It does not use the means of moneybut adopts an exchange method according to individual needs.   But Auroville has not yet achieved self-sufficiency. International organizations and countries such as the United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) support about $4 million every year, but Auroville's own profits are only about $1 million, showing a high dependency.    Auroville has a high potential for achieving self-reliance, starting with a deteriorated land and regenerating green areas in about 50 years, providing free food and education, while achieving energy independence. Therefore, if various experiments such as organic methods, appropriate technologies, and water resource protection that they are currently pursuing produce results step by step, Auroville’s economic independence can be achieved. It is interesting that Auroville is actually developing steadily in pursuit of harmony and coexistence, and it can be predicted that there is a high possibility of development as of now.    However, if the Auroville model, which pursued political and social ideal, fails to stand on its own feet with high dependence on aid even after enough time, it proves that the Auroville modelhas no choice but to be just "ideal." I hope the case of Auroville, which pursues peace and harmony, will succeed and provide new insights for modern humans suffering from excessive competition and inhumanity under neoliberalism.
