Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (July 14, 2016)
1. A study found that stress hormone is linked to short-term memory loss as people age. As people get older, repeated and long-term exposure to cortisol, a natural stress hormone in the body, can cause synapses, the region of the brain that houses short-term memory, to shrink and disappear.
I knew it. Anyway, what was I doing?
2. A former South Korean government official’s ’99 percent of Koreans are dogs and pigs’ remark also became a headline in the United States. The LA Times mentioned about Na Yang-wook’s comments, the former director of the Education Ministry’s policy planning office, that African Americans and Latinos in the US do not even try climbing the social ladder.
I hope the LA Times reports that wrath of South Koreans has fired the government official. Please.
