Community Collaboration Participant Identification on Osan Air Base, South Korea

INTRODUCTION
Transforming the way the community at Osan Air Base, Korea, views its use of energy—including creating policies to promote recyclable and renewable energy is critical to promoting sustainment, saving money and preserving our community resources. The goal of this project is to develop sustained changed towards behavior and attitudes of current energy consumers at Osan AB. Research indicates in order to achieve sustained behavior change the organization must be educated and properly motivated to be willing to change their convenient patterns of behavior. By targeting collaborative groups for imparting knowledge in this field, the future consumers and decision makers can be prepared to play a meaningful role in energy conservation through their better habits and behavior. Currently the Republic of Korean government pays 41% of the US operating costs in Korea. This Host Nation Support assist with utilities, cost of land, and the overall cost of doing business in a foreign country for approximately 8000 active duty, civilian and dependent personnel assigned to Osan AB (usfk.mil, 2012).
U.S. military bases in Korea are experiencing exponential growth as more families are moving to the Korean in an effort to normalize tours to improve readiness, increase continuity by keeping troops in place longer and reduce lengthy family separations. As the standards of living increase so does the use of electricity which will not only raise the cost of HNS but also pose a challenge to the environment. Inefficient use of lights or excessive running water does not demonstrate effective stewardship of these resources.
One of the Department of Defense’s strategies for reducing energy use is through energy awareness programs targeted at the individuals base and/or…...

The Korean Management

...THE KOREAN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Cultural, Political, Economic Foundations Chan Sup Chang and Nahn Joo Chang Q Quorum Books Westport, Connecticut London Preface We approached the Korean management system from a cultural context. Although they share a common Oriental culture with other neighboring nations, Koreans maintain a unique culture. This culture, combined with the impact of the geopolitical environment of the Korean peninsula, results in a unique behavioral pattern. Thus, managers and workers in the Korean management system behave differently from their counterparts in other countries. The Koreans have accomplished remarkable economic success since the 1960s, and their management system has played a major role in contributing to this phenomenal economic achievement. Entrepreneurs, top executives, managers, and workers in the management system are all integral parts of the system, and they have performed their assigned jobs effectively. Therefore, to comprehend the unique nature of this Korean management system, we performed an in-depth analysis on its performance. The external environment of the Korean management system is a crucial factor in understanding it. In this kind of environment, the role of government is prominent because without active support from the government, no enterprise can survive and prosper. The government, in return, demands some favors from these enterprises, making this a quid pro quo, a unique feature of the Korean management system. We......

Community South Medical Center

...Managing in Health & Human Services Instructor: Rhonda Travland June 25, 2012 I think the strategic mission should be revised. The Medical Center is in an older urban area with smaller shops and businesses. The community is trending towards a predominantly elder population. There has also been a decline in compliance with T.J.C. standards. Staffing supports new program development and the physician staff is in abundant supply. There are also major issues that need to be addressed, such as shortages in clinical staff, non-interfacing information technology systems, antiquated facilities and infrastructure, and a shift to its financial mix. Careful assessment of the aging person's perception of his or her health, health practices, and knowledge of safety factors affecting their own health is an important part of primary care in all settings. A strategic plan to handle the aging population must be addressed and plans implemented to meet the challenges and needs that the aging population would present. One of the major issues confronting the Community South Medical Center are the shortage of clinical staff including registered nurses, respiratory therapists, and medical technologists The strengths, (arrived through SWOT analysis),of Community South Medical Center is that it has comprehensive health services including acute care, residential care, independent living, in-home nursing, hospice, neonatal, and pediatric services, advanced cardiac services, a......

South Korean Malware

...South Korean Malware Attack Reporting and technical details surrounding the malware used in the March 20, 2013, attack on South Korean assets have been varied and inconsistent. However, there are some commonalities reported across multiple organizations that provide some level of insight into the malware, dubbed ‘DarkSeoul’. The common attributes of the attack campaign are the following: * The malicious file wipes the master boot record (MBR) and other files. * The malware was hard coded with a specific execution date and time and searches machines for credentials with administrative/root access to servers. * The malware is written to specifically target South Korean victims. * The attack is effective on multiple operating systems. * The design is low sophistication – high damage. When assessing the potential risk to U.S. Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR), it is important to understand that DarkSeoul appears to have been coded for a specific target in this case and designed to evade typical South Korean antivirus processes. As this malware is currently packaged, it is a low risk to U.S. CIKR, however, the concepts underpinning this attack would likely succeed in many common enterprise environments. For this reason, U.S. CIKR owners and operators should continue the best standard security practices to avoid infection and propagation of a wiper or other type of malware that may impact their systems. Defensive......

Korean War

...THE KOREAN WAR * The Korean War lasted from 1950-1953. * The peninsula was divided after World War Two into a Russian-backed north (The People’s Democratic Republic) and the American-backed south (the Republic of Korea). Each claimed the right to the other half in an effort to unify both. The division was the result of the occupation of Korea by the communists after the end of the war with the country eventually being divided at the 38th parallel. * In June 1950, the North Koreans launched a surprise attack against the south and the capital Seoul fell in just three days. * The United Nations Security Council (which was being boycotted by Russia at this time) asked for UN states to send troops to the region under a UN flag. The huge bulk of the troops sent were American (15 nations sent troops) and command of them was given to Gen. Douglas MacArthur. * By the end of August 1950 only Pusan in the south-east corner of South Korea had not fallen to the North. * In September, MacArthur took the huge risk of launching an amphibious landing at Inchon 200 miles behind enemy lines and from here he launched an attack against the North Koreans at Pusan. * The North Koreans had no choice but to retreat as they faced being cut in two. * MacArthur chose to ignore his orders and advanced north towards the Chinese border at the Yalu River. This provoked the Chinese to launch a massive attack against the UN forces and South Korea. A Chinese army of 180,000 men......

Korean

...KSA KSA means “Korean Student Association” which contains all Korean students in Baton Rouge. It is organization to promote unity and helping of Korean students and Korean community. KSA is committed to inform and to help prospective students for smooth adjustment to new academic and cultural environment on campus. In addition, KSA represents Korean organization and publicizes its existence and activities to local and international organization. One of most important elements of KSA that allows it to bond is communication. The fact that the person is from South Korea does not mean that he or she is openly invited to join group. The KSA requires personal or private invitations. The new or prospective students need to be invited by the current members. They also need to attend the Mass Meeting in Korea or on campus to sign up as a member, get a group T-shirt, and a membership card. Even if everyone, including non-KSA members, may attend the events and activities, the invitations are sent out privately through E-mail by the president of group only to current members. Thus, the outside people need to be informed by the members or join the group to be the members. However, states oppositely that anyone even the people from outside of the group are welcomed to engage in joint activities and events without private invitations or limitations. KSA is helped not only Korean students but also Korean community. KSA gather in Baton Rouge to share opinions socially without......

South Korea's industrialization, urbanization and GDP are rapidly growing mainly because of its comparative advantage in manufacturing and exporting of technological goods, its political centralization also supports a clear coordination and effectiveness of laws reforms. However, its aging population, low fertility rates, recent decline in FDIs and unresolved political disputes with Democratic People's Republic of Korea should be amended in order to increase consumer confidence and improve its international potential.

Role and Scope of Erp Integration for Port Community Systems to Enhance Collaboration Among Port Community Members

...28 July 2014 Diploma Thesis Title: Role and Scope of ERP Integration for Port Community Systems to Enhance Collaboration Among Port Community Members. A Case Study in the Ports of Hamburg, Rotterdam, Le Havre and Felixstowe. Part I: Introduction (2 – 3 pages) 1.1 Background of the study 1.2 Research Objectives 1.3 Research Methodology 1.4 Structure of the thesis Part II: Theoretical Research (30 pages) Objectives: This thesis is mainly focused on the complexity of the intersection between the ERP Systems and the PCSs. The theoretical research should help to explain the characteristics of Port Community System and the ERP integration. An in-depth, multi-disciplinary literature review will be conducted to assess the need, challenges and opportunities of developing the ERP integration for Port Community Systems. Comment: I think ERP could be considering especially on the PCS perspective, not as Enterprise system software. I mean ERP as a business management software for PCS operators and a suite of integrated applications for port community users. Considering the ports as Business Ecosystem I would like to find out the role and scope of the ERP Integration for PCS. 2.1 Port Community Systems (Structure is needed, e.g.: 2.1.1, 2.1.2, etc.) Definition PCS Evolution of PCS Why choose to have a Port Community System Which types of users make use of the systems?

TESCO는 영국 본사와 해외시장들에서 확보한 현금 유동성을 바탕으로, 남아프리카공화국 유통서비스 시장에 Joint Venture로 진입하기 위해 시장분석을 하고자 한다. 2) Why TESCO? 남아프리카공화국 유통 서비스 시장에서 TESCO를 선정한 이유는 당사의 적극적인 해외시장 공략 전략과 더불어 영국기업에 친숙한 남아프리카공화국 국내 정서에 있다. 중앙유럽의 경우 헝가리에 15개 점포를 운영하고 있는 것을 비롯해 폴란드 10개, 체코 11개 점포를 각각 보유하고 있다. 아시아 시장도 역시 적극 공략하고 있다. 태국에서는 할인점 1위를 차지하고 있고 한국 시장도 2014년 12월 기준 Homeplus express를 제외하고 전국 140개의 매장 운영을 통해 열성을 기울이고 있다. TESCO는 2000년에 이미 유럽과 아시아 시장에서 40% 이상의 고성장을 기록했다. 해외시장에서 TESCO가 성공적으로 진출할 수 있었던 것은 이질적 문화를 가진 해외시장에서 그룹 자체의 기업문화는 그대로 살리되 가급적 현지 시장에 맞춰 사업을 추진하는 퓨전경영을 시도했기 때문이다. 현지국의 소비수준을 면밀히 검토한 후 취향과 기호에 맞게 현지화를 추진하며 여기에 TESCO 본사의 선진시스템을 결합시켜 시너지 효과를 냈다. TESCO는 현지에 3~4명의 본사 직원을 파견하는 것을 제외하고는 최고 경영자에서부터 판매사원까지 전 직원을 현지인으로 채용하며,......

Cost is also a factor that needs to be taken before the company could adopt a certain technology; cost benefit analysis should be done. In the report the following topics will be discussed: * The new trends in software and service distribution * Social networking tools * Virtual reality * Biometrics * The new trends in networking and * Nanotechnology The report aims to advice Eskom on what actions should be taken with regards to the above technologies. Eskom is a state owned utility that supplies about 95% of electricity in South Africa. The company owns massive assets such as power stations (coal fired, nuclear, hydro, pump storage and wind turbines), transmission and distribution equipment. Eskom is currently building two coal fired power station. 2. The new trends in software and service distribution Bidgoli (2010:4), has classified software and service distribution into two trends which are pull and push technologies. According to O’Brien (1999:312), pull technology is a process whereby a user with a web browser gathers information from a web browser to his personal computer (PC). Information on software that is marketed by the company is downloaded or read by the potential customer. Although, according to O’Brien (1999:312) the software is cheap and......
