It's a man's world

A reason for young Korean men to have sex changes

'Picking Only Women at Ewha Law School Unconstitutional'

According to the Korea Times, some male students have sued, claiming that Ewha Womans University Law School is discriminating against them because it won't allow them to attend. If I were representing Ewha in the case I'd suggest that due to the wonders of modern technology the men can still go to Ewha--if they have surgery to become women.

A reason for young Korean men NOT to have a sex change

Women in 30s Feel Greatest Squeeze in Job Market

The powers-that-be have focused their energies, apparently successfully, on helping senior citizens and young people stay employed. The result? According to the Korea Times: "Other statistics by the Korea Labor Institute showed that out of victims of job cuts between November 2008 and May this year, 98 percent were female workers."

Incredible! 98 percent of the people let go have been women.

For once, we can say that government policy truly worked as intended. I can see why those young Korean men are trying so hard to get into Ewha, Korea is clearly a woman's world.

The answer may be that you're a Korean woman in your 30s

The Korea Times asks today: Why Do You Feel Left Out of Ongoing Recovery?

As cited above: "Other statistics by the Korea Labor Institute showed that out of victims of job cuts between November 2008 and May this year, 98 percent were female workers."

Low Birthrate Hurts Formula Makers

Now that so many Korean women have been let go from jobs they may start having more babies again...

One thing about journalism is how issues are examined in isolation. Today the story is that Korea's birthrate has fallen. If it rises then the story will be that Korea is overpopulated. Or that the country's social services will go bankrupt in 2050. Or some other form of destruction that never quite occurs. And if the formula makers start making a lot of money then we'd be reading stories about them living the high-life as they rake in record profits.

The Casey Lartigue Show

Guests scheduled for May NOTE: Check here for updates on Memorandum 46! Future Shows Thomas Sowell of the Hoover Institution This is my first attempt at putting together my own promo , it was rejected because of the sound quality May 19 edition of the Casey Lartigue Show We had a great show yesterday, probably the best so far. The topic: Malcolm X. The occasion? Anniversary of his 82nd birthday. Eliot Morgan and I had a great time talking with the callers. Deneen Borelli called in on our special guest line. You can download the file here. We posed the question: What did Malcolm X do? We contrasted the viewpoint and legacies of Malcolm X and Thurgood Marshall. The one mistake I made was not to focus on the question that Marshall asked: What was the one concrete thing that Malcolm X did. In segment 3, callers begin to get personal with us.

2016-11-03 Who is Andrei Lankov?

Disclaimer: NK experts, please don't read this, there will be no rabbits pulled out of a hat. * * * Every couple of months, I meet up with Andrei Lankov to discuss various things. I first met him back in 2011, shortly before he spoke at an event I organized with the Center for Free Enterprise. I have read his articles for years, he has spoken at about four TNKR events over the years. When it comes to analyzing NK, he is one of the leading experts in the field. Last March, I was one of the organizers of the first (and perhaps last) International Volunteers Workshop, we had 227 RSVP in advance. I asked them all as part of the RSVP: "The keynote speaker will be Andrei Lankov. Had you heard of him before hearing about this event?" No: 133 Yes: 94 Even within those 94 "Yes" responses, I am sure there were various levels of awareness--such as some may have seen his name, others may have read some articles, and a few experts may have the Andrei La

2014-07-01 Happy Birthday, Joo Yeon Cho!

Can it be true? I have known Joo Yeon Cho for less than 9 months? Incredible! But I guess that's the way it is with Joo Yeon. I'm not surprised to see so many birthday messages coming from all over Korea and the world. She works for a company that could crush me and everyone I know, but she still calls me "Boss."^^ I checked my emails, she first emailed me back on October 14, and I was surprise d to see it was 2013, not 2012 or even earlier. She wanted to join as a volunteer at the Mulmangcho School. I quickly recognized she was a special lady. She didn't know it, but I had already decided that she would help me with a special project I had planned with Praise Ju that I was going to launch two days later. They hit it off, and the project took off! We are collaborating again--she started off as the first Academic Adviser in the Teach North Korean Refugees Project, and she is now our first External Coordinator. As I posted a few days ago, she regularly blows u
