Cho Myung Rok Dies, Military Reshuffle Awaits

first_imgAnalysis & Opinion AvatarKim Yong Hun By Kim Yong Hun – 2010.11.07 7:23pm Tracking the “unidentified yellow substance” being dried out near the Yongbyon Nuclear Center SHARE Is Nuclear Peace with North Korea Possible? Analysis & Opinion RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Pence Cartoon: “KOR-US Karaoke” Vice Marshal Cho Myung Rok, First Vice Chairman of the National Defense Commission, died yesterday morning at 82, focusing attention on how the North Korean authorities will reorganize following his passing. Chosun Central News Agency (KCNA) reported the news today, announcing, “Lamentably, Comrade Cho Myung Rok passed away at 10:30 A.M. on November 6, 2010 of chronic cardiac disease at age 82.” Cho Myung Rok was known as a source of real power in military circles following his appointment to First Vice Chairman of the National Defense Commission in 1998, following becoming Director of the Chosun People’s Army (KPA) General Political Department in October, 1995. However, due to health problems his public activities were reduced drastically starting in 2006. Even though he became a member of the Standing Committee of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Party at the 3rd Party Delegates’ Conference in late September, it was a nominal promotion reflecting Cho’s seniority rather than a practical appointment. Cho’s death may see Vice Marshal Lee Young Ho, who also assumed membership of the Standing Committee of the Politburo at the Delegates’ Conference, being handed the second most powerful role in the military. This would reflect Lee’s prominence as one of the closest associates of Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Eun alongside sister Kim Kyung Hee and brother-in-law Jang Sung Taek.Additionally, First Vice Director of the General Political Bureau of the Army Kim Jeong Kak or Politburo member and Party Secretary Choi Ryong Hae are prominent candidates for the empty position of Director of the General Political Department of the Workers’ Party, which is now vacant. Kim Yeon Su, a professor at Korean National Defense University explained in a telephone interview with The Daily NK, “Kim Young Chun and Oh Geuk Ryeol, who did not take any important positions at the Delegates’ Conference, are not appropriate for the General Political Department of the Army, which is in charge of the management of political life in the military, since they have been playing the role of field commander.” He added, “We need to pay attention to Central Military Commission members Choi Ryong Hae, who became a General at the Delegates’ Conference, and First Vice Director of the General Political Bureau of the Army Kim Jeong Kak.” “There is the possibility that the function and role of the General Political Bureau of the Ministry of the People’s Armed Forces could be reinforced in order to strengthen control of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party over the People’s Army,” he went on. “If Kim Jeong Kak takes the position of Director of KPA General Political Department, Kim Jong Eun’s military leadership system could be completed, including Kim Kyung Ok (First Vice Director of the Guidance Department), who became a member of the Central Military Commission of the Party, and Choi Ryong Hae, all led by Lee Young Ho.” Facebook Twitter Cho Myung Rok Dies, Military Reshuffle Awaits Analysis & Opinion Analysis & Opinion last_img read more

It is the sum of the cognitive, behavioural, emotional and spiritual well-being of a person. Worries may be real or imagined, but the easiest way to explain worry is as ‘advancement of anxiety’. Coping counterbalances worry, and it is a person’s ability to deal with responsibilities, problems, or difficulties successfully or in an adequate manner. During a serious and continued crisis like the current lockdown, the coping ability may increase or decrease against worries depending on several personal and environmental factors. The first edition of TRA’s whitepaper Coronavirus Consumer Insights – 1 was published on April 24, 2020. This whitepaper compares the change mental well-being of citizens from Lockdown 1.0 to Lockdown 3.0.N Chandramouli, CEO, TRA Research said, “Delhi (NCR) citizens display an ‘Outstanding’ rating in the Mental Well-being Index, with the citizenry’s coping skills bettering their worries. Guwahati at 89 per cent MWBI and Hyderabad at 82 per cent MWBI both display ‘Excellent’ mental well-being. Indore displays an unchanged MWBI score at 76 per cent and continues to display ‘Good’ mental well-being.”Ahmedabad displays the lowest mental well-being at 25 per cent followed by Chennai at 28 per cent and Kolkata, facing the dual crises of COVID-19 and Amphan is at 29 per cent MWBI. Along with these cities, Nagpur (36 per cent), Kochi (37 per cent) and Coimbatore (39 per cent) also display ‘Very Poor’ mental well-being, added Chandramouli.Dr Jalpa Bhuta, Consultant Psychiatrist, Global Hospital and Hinduja Khar, observed, “The study shows that cities like Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai are not coping too well as compared to most others and combined health and economic anxieties are more prominent in these cities. It is important for authorities to invest in more detailed studies of citizens’ mental well-being to address these issues. Mental health is as important as physical and economic well-being, but being a silent problem, it often gets overlooked. The need of the hour for everyone is to keep a positive attitude, high resilience and a strong spiritual faith, all of which contribute to coping ability and mental well-being.”Four cities showed improved mental well-being between Lockdown 1.0 and Lockdown 3.0. Delhi (NCR) was leading and the city displays outstanding mental well-being at 107 per cent with coping higher than worry. The city also shows the highest rise in Mental Well-being Index (rise of 44 per cent) from Lockdown 1.0. Lucknow showed a 27 per cent improvement in the Mental Well-being Index to now display Good on the MWBI scale. Mumbai has a rise in MWBI of 26 per cent, though still at a Poor on the MWBI metric. Hyderabad is the only other city where Mental Well-being Index has shown a rise of 18 per cent, rising from Good to Excellent mental well-being. All other cities either did not show any change in the MWBI or showed a decrease in mental well-being. The City Mental Well-being heat-map shows the data in a different format, clearly showing the deterioration of mental well-being in a majority of the cities with significant exceptions as stated in the above paragraph (Green indicates better MWBI, and colour changes progressively toward Red showing worse MWBI).

The regulator pointed to the benefits for the UAE’s operators in enabling affordable network deployment.“The UAE is predicting a rising demand for global harmonization of the APT 700 MHz band benefiting in the growing ecosystem of devices from Asia Pacific across the Middle East and Africa, through to Latin America,” added H.E. Majed Al Mesmar, deputy director general for the telecommunications sector.Mobile operators in the UAE will use the lower duplex of the Asia Pacific 700 MHz band, also known as APT700, as “a base line”, with the possibility of also using an additional 2 x 10 MHz for greater efficiency and public protection and disaster relief applications.  In addition, 5 MHz has also been considered for so-called direct mode operation to serve the same purpose.The regulator’s decision was supported by the GSMA. Tom Phillips, the organisation’s chief government and regulatory affairs officer, said: “Combining the 800MHz band plan for Europe, Middle East and Africa with the lower portion of the Asia Pacific (APT) 700MHz band is a significant step forward.”He said the benefits of spectrum harmonisation included economies of scale, near-global roaming and limiting interference in border regions.

Zombie History — Using Galileo to Whack Intelligent Design

first_img“A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide And who might those deniers be? Those who hold any doubt about consensus opinion on climate change, and evolution. While few today would excuse the condemnation and house arrest of Galileo, there’s plenty of blame to go around. Galileo was a self-assured individual who mocked his opponents in his writings, portraying them as fools. Pope Urban VIII — a former friend who had encouraged him — took this as a personal slight.  Origin of Life: Brian Miller Distills a Debate Between Dave Farina and James Tour Keas traces the development of the warfare thesis through the 19th century. Despite being largely discredited by historians, the warfare thesis lives on into our time. For instance, Mario Livio has a new book out, Galileo and the Science Deniers, which Alison Abbott reviewed in Nature. According to Livio, there are only two types of people in the world: those who “believe in science,” and those pesky “science deniers” who keep hindering progress. Abbott comments: It seems ironic to advocate “belief in science” when science is about demonstration, not belief. Does Livio mean to imply that belief in science means acquiescence to the scientific consensus at a given time? If the evidence of empirical research contradicts the consensus, would he advocate for denying the evidence to keep the consensus secure? Or alternatively, if he were to exercise the “intellectual freedom” he praises in Galileo, by critiquing a flawed consensus, would that not make him a science denier himself? It’s a chillingly relevant theme, yet the parallels he draws between Galileo’s trial and contemporary science wars feel thin, and there’s a frustrating lack of examples to demonstrate the continuity of denialism through the centuries. Jonathan Wells calls attempts to keep discarded icons of evolution alive “Zombie Science.” Michael Keas could call the warfare thesis “Zombie History.” The pursuit of truth should be, contrary to Nature’s perpetuation of the Galileo myth, the primary value for which all honest investigators strive. And what of today’s science deniers? Livio briefly addresses how religion and business interests still conspire to attack evidence for evolution and anthropogenic climate change. Requesting a (Partial) Retraction from Darrel Falk and BioLogos In Nature’s podcast, Livio makes it clear that his purpose in writing was to advance the warfare thesis. The podcast speaks flippantly of the “science denialism that we see today.” Surely there is plenty of that in various quarters, but this broad-brush categorization needs clarification that never comes. Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Faith & Science The book itself inveighs against a “policy today that encourage the teaching of creationism as thinly veiled ‘intelligent design,’” which is wrong on multiple levels. (Intelligent design isn’t creationism, whether “thinly veiled” or otherwise, and if the “policy” he has in mind is Discovery Institute’s, that policy warns against teaching either ID or creationism in public schools.) Polemics The Real Galileo The reality of the events surrounding Galileo’s condemnation and house arrest in 1633 is far too complex to submit to the unnuanced “science vs religion” dichotomy. In fact, a skilled debater could turn the tables on Livio, and show that the scientific establishment today is like the 17th-century Inquisition, condemning its own heretics. If science were as self-correcting as Livio thinks, Darwinism would have been rejected by now. Livio considers Galileo “a symbol of the fight for intellectual freedom,” but denies that freedom to the bold scientists who critique the consensus dogmas on some scientific issues. Livio’s history needs some self-correction. True, he corrects some minor myths about Galileo, like the story about his dropping weights from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the myth about his saying “And yet it moves” at the end of his trial. Those are minor matters for Livio as he sweeps on to the grand fallacy: portraying Galileo as the champion of “science vs religion.” Better historians quote Galileo to show he never doubted the providence of God, and actually believed his position would help the Church.  To her credit, Abbott notes some weaknesses in the book’s evidential support: Jane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis Image: Galileo interrogated, by Cristiano Banti [Public domain]. Congratulations to Science Magazine for an Honest Portrayal of Darwin’s Descent of Man In this light, Livio should be praising honest scientists willing to buck the consensus if they can make a better evidential case than what the establishment offers. The “deniers” might just be the pioneers of a “scientific revolution” which, rejecting hoary dogmas, can bring fresh understanding to the study of nature. ID advocates are trying to do that with the compelling evidence for design in genetics, molecular biology, and the fine-tuning of the universe.  A Physician Describes How Behe Changed His MindLife’s Origin — A “Mystery” Made AccessibleCodes Are Not Products of PhysicsIxnay on the Ambriancay PlosionexhayDesign Triangulation: My Thanksgiving Gift to All Modern astronomers have complicated both the Copernican view and the Galilean view. The Earth moves about the sun only in the sun’s frame of reference. The sun itself is in motion around the Milky Way. The Milky Way, furthermore, is moving with respect to the Local Group and the local supercluster. Looked at this way, without a preferred frame of reference, the Earth moves neither in circles (as Copernicus and Galileo believed) nor in ellipses (as Kepler believed); it traces an erratic path in a universe of competing forces.  This all happened, furthermore, at a very inopportune time politically, during the Thirty Years War. Galileo was advancing a view without sufficient observational evidence, which only became convincing to scientists decades later. Leading scientists of Galileo’s day had their own evidences for the geocentric theory, and for the Tychonian model, which was preferred to both. Galileo wasn’t opposing theologians as much as the establishment science of his day. The church didn’t mind his holding to the Copernican theory as long as it was held tentatively, as an opinion or working hypothesis, as long as Galileo didn’t teach it as the truth. Copernicus himself, who was a churchman supported by the church, had presented his model as attractive for its simplicity, not because he had superior evidence it was true. In particular, he argues, the charges of heresy that Galileo faced for his scientific claims in the seventeenth century have their counterparts in science deniers’ condemnations today.

Many complicated alliances and personal idiosyncrasies came into play. Contingency, not historical inevitability, was at work. The majority of Church leaders had allied themselves with the majority Aristotelian scientific viewpoint of the day. Together they opposed Copernican astronomy, which a theological and scientific minority held. If Galileo had been more tactful, modest, and patient in his attempt to reform his own church, there might have been no trial of 1633. Minority scientists such as Galileo argued that a heliocentric cosmos was scientifically superior. But given the scientific data available up through 1633, the Copernican system had not yet been shown to be superior to the Tychonic system of astronomy…. He made the arguments for the Copernican system seem stronger than they were at the time. This is part of what got him in trouble with the Inquisition….Rather than reflecting a fundamental conflict between science and Christianity, the Galileo affair is better characterized as the fruit of rapid scientific change, political turmoil, and personal vanity. He debunks myths about Galileo having been imprisoned and tortured and forced to confess to heresy, myths unfortunately fostered by 19th-century textbook writers, some of whom lacked access to primary sources. Bad as it was, Galileo’s treatment was much more accommodating than these agenda-driven accounts suggested. Keas concludes with a summary of the forces that led to the result: Knowing this to be the case in modern astrophysical thinking, Livio has grounds for condemning Galileo as a “science denier.” Absurd as that would be, it illustrates the historicity of science, the view that science is inextricably bound up with the information available at a given time. Galileo and the Catholic Church in 1633 did not have access to all the information we have now. Nor do astronomers in 2020 know everything. There are profound mysteries still to be solved that are hotly debated today, such as the existence and nature of dark matter and dark energy. Today’s astronomers believe they can only observe and describe some 5 percent of the universe. Who are we to boast? A useful myth is hard to put down. The Galileo myth gives a premiere illustration. Ever since John William Draper and Andrew Dickson White fostered the “warfare thesis” of “science vs religion” in the late 19th century, appealing to the Galileo affair as the example par excellence, historians have had little luck convincing the scientific establishment that their version of the Galileo story is flawed. Fortunately, we have the new book by Michael Keas to help set the story straight: Unbelievable: 7 Myths About the History and Future of Science and Religion. Blame to Go Around Livio: This is one of the main reasons why I decided to write the book. We see science denial all over the place today….Interviewer: Do you think that there can be any lessons that can be learned?Livio: Well, the real lesson is “believe in science.” It’s not that science is always right, but science has this ability to self-correct. So we have to believe in science, and we have to put the science first, and before any kind of political considerations, conservatism, religious beliefs and things like that. This is a big lesson. Recommended Michael Keas, in his excellent chapter on the Galileo affair in Unbelievable, describes the individuals who troubled Galileo but balances that with the many friends in the church who supported him. last_img read more
