 I used to feel nervous when I meet a new person. At that day, I had been feeling nervous since morning. I prepared to go out for a blind meeting. I went out 1 hour before an appointment, and I arrrived at the restaurnat where we met 30 minutes before the appointment. I would rather arrive early for the appointment than on time. 

 

 I was sitting idly with a little nervous. After 20 minutes, a woman who took a mask was walking into the restaurant. I thought that the woman was the very one I waited for. She gave me a simple image at first. As time went, I has got that she had a big smile. We could talk about interesting subjects that we were familiar with.

Toyota recall crisis

2013. 10. 26. 21:36 책과 글, 그리고 시/영작(英作)

Toyota Motor Co. is recalling 885,000 vehicles worldwide over electrical problems that could prevent airbags from deploying in a crash, the latest in a series of major safety-related actions for the carmaker


Oct. 17, 2013 ,NBC NEWS -


This is not the first time Toyota recall defective cars. I think, Toyota seems not to learn lesson form the mistakes.

In February 2010, there were a lot of recalls about Toyota's car in the United States because of gas pedal defects. The situation was unprecedented in modern times.

Recall is the system by which the product already sold is defective, and the company of the product replaces it with a new one or they should check it thoroughly free of charge. Recall is usually divided into compulsory and spontaneous. At that time, Toyota announced that they would recall spontaneously all of the defective cars, but actually Media force in the United Stated had forced them to recall. Recall is a signal that they admit the defect. Then, the reason why the situation happened is mainly because of two problems

 

The first thing is Toyota’s difference to raising the question about the gas pedal defect to customers. 3 years ago, and they said "There is no defect". Toyota had been known for high quality cars and security, and they were proud of them. Some people died because of the groundless confidence After that accident, situation got worse and worse and led to a lack of confidence.

The second thing is Toyota used the specific components for all of the Toyota' cars. Initially, Toyota had used separate components depending on the model. Since they launched a branch In the US, there had been considerable rise in demand. To meet the demands, they had to produce in large quantities. And they decided to use the same component for all models and expected cost-benefits by using them. Media consider this a cause for the situation, Toyota said "Almost all of the components that caused error were made by subcontractors in the US. The subcontractors didn't admit the problem. Even though they made the component poorly, Toyota must have done the final inspection of all parts. I think that is Toyota's fault.

 

Toyota is an icon in Japan. Toyota is the best selling company in the world. Due to this kind of situation, their reputation has fallen fast and their income has dropped considerably. In November 2010, the media reported Toyota announced that they would recall spontaneously IQ models in Europe and Japan due to a handle defect. As Toyota’s nightmare keeps going on, I wonder when the situation will reverse.

Critical Thinking; the most important thing in life

2013. 4. 6. 22:28 책과 글, 그리고 시/영작(英作)

 

 

 

Soli Deo Gloria 

 

 

Since many companies have reduced a number of employees and have fired employees a lot because of the economic crisis. In these circumstances, there are many university students who are trying to improve abilities which are said "Spec", new term in Korea like TOEIC, language training, certificate of blood donation, volunteer activity to enter the better company. That skill they got is only used for entering company, I think. They want to enter the good company and earn a lot of money. They are not concerned about real life things like; "how should I live?", "what is right?", "what is wrong?" They don’t ask question about real life thing anymore like this. But the most serious problem is that they couldn’t think critically. Then, how can they improve thinking power? The answer is to read a book. 

 

 

 

 

 

 A book is a complete product that includes the author's thoughts and beliefs. By reading a book, we can meet an author indirectly. We also can experience different thoughts between us and the author. Due to different thoughts, we will try to understand why the author thinks and writes what he wrote. We will try to get an answer; the answer will be your own thought. But if you read the same kinds of books, which insist their opinion is correct to the exclusion of opposing opinions, you could get a one-sided or a partial understanding of the thoughts.

   

 To avoid these things, you must read the book which describes the opposite opinions, you will get a balanced viewpoint. It is also good to read a variety of books on society, science, art, and other topics. There is a lot of new and interesting information that we don't know. By knowing these things, we can broaden our knowledge

 

 If we read just one book, it is difficult to understand both sides of the issue. But I am sure that if you keep reading a book and organize your thoughts; someday you will have your own value that makes you stand firm in wisdom which distinguish between wrong and right. A person who always tries to think sensibly about the problem that he is facing, wherever he is, will live a better life.      

 

 

Soli Deo Gloria

 A month ago, a student from Taiwan came our lab to do experiment for last semester of master course. When I met him, I felt he was so shy. And also It takes me a while to warm up stangers. I talked to him with few words for about 2 weeks. Since I had a supper with him several times, I have gotten along with him well. As time goes by, it was time for him to leave.

 

 The day before he leave, he asked "why is your nose crooked?" I was suprised that he noticed my broken nose. That's why nobody in my lab realized that at all !!

 

 

 

Let me tell you my sad story.

 

 

When I was high school student, I went toilet during break time. I met the guy whom I didn’t get along with well since first year. I argued with such petty matters. He spoke to me loudly with his anger, which irritated me. I had my right hand clutched into a fist. And then I shook my fist to that guy. after first punch, I didn’t exactly know what happen. oh no... Anyway, at that time, even my nose bone was broken. 

 

 

 I think he has a special talent for Picking things up quickly. 

 

 

 Hope he come back.
