Russiaís three spy agencies were ordered to find practical ways to support Trump, in a decree appearing to bear Putinís signature.

By this point Trump was the frontrunner in the Republican partyís nomination race. A report prepared by Putinís expert department recommended Moscow use ďall possible forceĒ to ensure a Trump victory.

I think this would've been your take away story from today's Herald:

http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20210720000961

I don't know what their chances of winning are but this guy is clearly a Urinara anti-foreigner type.  Thinks the only immigrants Korea needs are the highly qualified or ready to invest ones.  And this guy went to Harvard.  I like Korea, but if you're an in demand MBA Korea isn't where you want to land.  I have a brother-in-law that is a marketing MBA from a well regarded business school in Canada and he has always had options for work.  He and my sister have lived in Europe for the last decade.  Currently, in Berlin after a few years in Geneva, he would never consider Korea.  Trade a high ceilinged spacious apartment in a leafy neighbourhood with cafes for Seoul?  It may be what Korea wants, but it's not a draw for those types of foreigners.  They need to be realistic.

Yeeeesh...talk about repugnant on a MUNGA (Make Uri Nara Great Again) level.

What exactly does Korea have to offer to HNW individuals looking to switch countries/residence that...say, Singapore or even Thailand...don't have?

And foreigners shouldn't get covid relief because they only pay taxes for a few years? And this guy still wants to attract (high level) immigrants to come in and be treated like this??

For someone who's so protective of Korean culture and Korean DNA...one would think he'd be jerking off to how culturally and socially pure NK is, at least they have kept foreign barbarians out for the most part all these years...yet he wants to dilute all that purity with the 2 million+ foreigners living in the south.

Tried to get the registered name of my phone changed from my wifeís to mine. Seems that it may f@ck up my vaccine registration if my phone number is not in my own name.

Anyway, went into TWorld and the guy said he needed our family registry certificate. What a lot of shit just to change names.

Hereís her ID, now hereís mine. Change it! Should be that f@cking simple.

I don't have the energy for a rant today.

I just think it sucks that my favorite hobby (travelling) has been kicked in the groin by COVID19 and now its family/offspring of variants.
Life's to live! Live! Breathe. Relax. Enjoy. Animals teach us to focus on family, friends and avoid danger. Get what you need and get along with others. That said, some rock the boat, but they know capsizin' it means they're sunk. Some sink, let's swim! The sea's big, great, but has undercurrents.

Damnit, I bought some of that Lebanese bread at the Foreign Food Mart late Saturday afternoon.  Only had a couple of pieces and then brought it to work today.  Just went to pull one out and it's already growing mold.  Good stuff, but it's got to be consumed faster than a bunch of bananas in this weather.

Thanks.  Fortunately, I had a half loaf of Paris Baguette's Roman Meal bread from a few weeks ago that is still soft and mold free.  That worked to mop up the gravy from my delicious Dinty Moore Beef Stew.  Yeah, that's right, I bought some Dinty Moore and Chef Boyardee on Saturday because I knew I wouldn't be up for cooking yesterday.  And, I went to the IFC Mall on Sunday and enjoyed some authentic American Chinese food at Panda Express.  It was either that or the authentic Mexican flavours at On the Border just a few doors away.

There's a new China Food joint in Yongsan called White Box. Did a pretty good General Tso's. Their Hot & Sour soup was the best. I love it but man is that a sodium bomb.

Also, Franco-American Gafield raviolios>Chef Boyardee. You know its authentic Italian with a name like Franco-American.

Is enforced deskwarming while all the Korean teachers go home be something to rant about? 
Trolls on here are lame and need to get a life.

not really, since this is like your 15th renewal contract and you (should) know the score by now.

...and yes, we are treated differently than full-fledged korean teachers. usually for the better. this is one area where we have to eat it.

Not really as up until recently, out in the provinces the schools were pretty lenient with it.  IE let you leave a bit early, etc.  But now not.

Yup, when people started ranting about how the contract needs to be strictly followed and is a bunch of rules and not a guideline, they failed to think everything through.

Refusing to come in on Sat. for that school festival for four hours meant you now had to come in for 8 hours a day for 8 days. Well thought-out.

Of course this isn't the same for everyone. Some schools were straight exploitative or run by psychos and yeah, people had to throw the contract in their face. But also, some people didn't understand how to play ball and well...
