Obituary: Kim Dae-jung, the 15th president of Republic of Korea (South Korea)

He might be killed at 1973 or 1981.
However, he has just closed his eyes peacefully at today afternoon.
Over death threat, he has been the symbol of Democracy and Peace in Korea.

Mourning of a politician in South Korea.

Links to this post

I remember the moment when Barack Obama announce his winning speech at a park in Chicago…

 

This scene was linked the dramatic moment in South Korea in 2002.

The moment, when the 16th President of Republic of Korea was elected, was very similar than what happened in the USA in 2008.

 

Late Roo Moo-Hyun, who was the 16th president of Republic of Korea (South Korea).

 

He was the symbol of democracy and moderate liberal politics in South Korea.

 

Unbelievable death…

Actually, he committed suicide but it is believed that Political Revenge culture from politicians, polices, prosecutors and media gave the motivation of his suicide.

 

Former S. Korea President Roh commits suicide

On the political murder of Roh

(From The Hankyoreh)

Lee Myung-bak’s Political Revenge Killed Roh Moo-Hyun

My Tribute to Roh Moo-hyun

(From OhmyNews International)

 

He asked “Don’t be sad” to his family and colleagues on the last letter, which was written before he died.

However, they and majority Korean cannot accept his last request.

South Korea has not changed what he want…

 

Rest in Peace dear the foolishness politician, who is admired and mourned by majority people.

South Korean Baseball Team, I’m proud of you

Links to this post

Beijing Olympics…

Their gold medal was miracle…

Anyone did not expect they get gold but they did.

 

World Baseball Classic…

Korea was out at semi-final in ‘06 WBC…

After 4 years, today, ‘09 WBC

 

Preparing period was seriously challengeable time for Korean Baseball team.

Anyone did not want to be manager (It might be the effect from Olympics)

In addition, It was hard to make squad because some of important players, who are in overseas league, did not enter the team (by their own decision and problems).

 

Just one Japan Pro League player and Just one Major League (US) player… That’s all… Other players are in Korean Pro League players.

 

Therefore, It was expected Korean Baseball team is out at Second rounds.

(WBC – 1st round –> 2nd round –> Finals)

However, today…

They standed the pitch, the grand final of WBC ‘09 and faced Japan, rival of rival for long long time.

 

The result was….

Japan 5 Korea 3

Yes, we lose the match.

 

However, Korea baseball team did as they can.

Especially, at 9th Bottom…

When Everyone expected ‘Yes, it’s the end’.

They made a point so the result was draw.

(Japan 3 Korea 3)

 

Even they lose, I celebrate they hardest journey.

They beaten Taipei China (Taiwan), China, Mexico, Venezuela and Japan (two times).

 

It could be impossible journey for them.

Well done, after 4 years, I believe Korea could be the top of world baseball teams.

 

Thanks and I’m proud of you

Korean Baseball Team

(P.S.) I wish Double Elimination rule should be dropped from next WBC. How many Korea and Japan matches were in ‘09 WBC. It’s five times (1R 2, 2R 2 and final 1). Is it reasonable schedule?

Are you happy with Fox to Heart?

Links to this post

When I enjoy tweeting 

I knew this new article via @106jackfm

 

Radio star can't wait to hit county's airwaves (From Oxford Mail)

 

This Oxford Mail article introduced a new presenter, who will present his radio show on Heart Oxfordshire.

 

As you might know, Fox FM is replacing to Heart Oxfordshire. From 23rd March, FOX FM will be remained to Oxfordshire people’s memories.

 

The reason of Heart Oxfordshire launching is GCap, formal owner of Fox FM, Xfm, Capital Radio (London), Classic FM and Etc., was merged with Global Radio, which is owner of Heart. After merger, Global Radio decided that One network, which were local radio stations brand of GCap (Included Fox FM), replace to Heart Network. So, we will hear Heart Oxfordshire on FM 102.6 and 97.4.

 

When I read Oxford Mail’s reader comments. I feel lots of people worry about they might lose one of local radio station. I am not sure how Heart Oxfordshire manage the time slots between local production and London HQ production.

 

I know some of my mates dislike Fox FM because music choice, present style, news value and Etc…

By the way, do you expect Heart solves these problems?

 

By the Way, other Oxfordshire commercial radio station, 106 Jack FM and Oxford’s FM 1079 are owned by Absolute Radio, which was Virgin Radio. However, I think these station are not effected from Absolute Radio and concentrate to local audience. Do you think Heart need to be localised as other local commercial stations or to broadcast as nationalised station ? (Which mean Heart Oxon broadcasts more Heart London programmes)

 

By the way, I just wait new ear of Oxfordshire commercial radio.

 

(P.S.) When Oxfordshire local radio launch DAB? FM signal of my house is too poor. Especially, I cannot listen Oxford’s FM 1079 because it has too noisy signal. However, I do not have any problem when I listen DAB station. I am looking forward to hear Oxford local stations on DAB.
