Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (February 26, 2016)
1. U.S. Democratic presidential front-runner and the former Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton said that Korea faced a series of hardships when they build their economy and created their democracy. But this does not happen overnight.
That is correct. That why everyone faced a series of hardships in Korea.
2. Saenuri floor leader Won Yoo-chul disparaged opposition lawmakers that their filibuster is a general election event to introduce preliminary candidates from Minjoo Party. Opposition lawmakers who scramble to filibuster the government-led legislation talk about democracy whereas Saenuri Party is only interested in the general election.
Do you want to hear a buzzword in Korea? You won’t be nominated if you disparage someone.
3. Students who skip breakfast are likely to have dyslipidemia than those who do. Dyslipidemia represents the abnormal amount of lipids in the blood, which builds up in the arteries that can mostly or completely block blood flow. This can lead to atherosclerosis, acute myocardial infarction, and stroke.
Is it too much to ask schools to provide breakfast? I don’t think that is possible.
4. One is four Koreans suffer from a mental disorder such as depression and anxiety at least once in their lifetime. Nine in ten people who committed suicide had problems with their mental health but only 15% received medical treatment.
Those who suffer from mental disorder should see a doctor when the condition is mild. Don’t wait until the condition becomes serious.
