Cops detain the Victims Upon Arrival

In Santa Clarita Valley, a homeless man approached three teens at a bus stop, two of them Black, and asked for cocaine.

The teens did not have cocaine, and then the man attempted to attack them with a knife. Two of the teens held out their skateboards to protect themselves.

Bystanders called the police, but when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the scene, two deputies pointed guns at the teens, told them to walk backwards toward them with hands in the air, and cuffed the teens.

Bystanders yelled out that they’d called the cops to protect the teens, not arrest them.

Another deputy replied that they were on another call for a service where someone was hit with a skateboard and described the teems.

The teens were held in the squad car for about 30 minutes and after questioning, released with no charges. The homeless man who attacked the teens have not been located.

The Mayor of Santa Clarita voiced concerns and replied that investigation would be taken to determine whether race was an issue in the deputies’ handling of the situation, confirmed the removal of AR-15 rifle, and promised to take any necessary actions.

The teens’ lawyer, Mr. Brown commented, “If those young men had not maintained their poise… they could have potentially been shot or seriously injured or killed.”

Former Presidential Rival is Biden’s Running Mate

Photo from Google Images

Senator Kamala Harris of California is Joe Biden’s running mate for the 2020 presidential election.

A prominent advocate of racial-justice legislation, Ms. Harris was once a former rival who sharply criticized Biden. She is the first black woman and person of Indian descent to be nominated by a major party for national office.

Many believe that if Joe Biden wins the 2020 election, she will likely become de facto party leader in about 4-8 years. Her views tend to mirror that of Joe Biden, and as a reliable ally of the Democratic Party, her presence is expected to appeal to black voters and women.

Her personal story excites many: as a daughter of two immigrant academics, she was raised in Oakland and Berkeley California and attended Howard University for a career in criminal justice. She is only the second black woman ever elected to the Senate.

Of course, she isn’t without flaws; as district attorney of San Francisco and as attorney general of California, she has been the center of high profile cases such as her decision to defend California’s death penalty regardless of her stated opposition to capital punishment.

Ms. Harris and VP Pence will be holding their first debate in October 2020, in Salt Lake City. Whether she becomes the key that brings in the much needed minority and women voters, only time will tell.

Korean Oyster and Clam Knife Noodles Are Perfect for Hot Humid Summers

삼복 더위의 끝, 막바지 더위가 안간힘을 쓰며 온 힘을 다 쏟아 붓고 있는 요즈음, 엊그제 입추를 맞이하여 잃어버린 입맛도 찾고 기분도 상큼해지는 맛있는 음식은 없을까 궁리하던 중, 지난 주에 사다 놓은 칼국수와 바지락, 냉동 굴을 냉동실에서 싱크대로 자리를 옮겼다.

굴&바지락 칼국수를 끓일려고 한다.

재료: 굴 200그램,

바지락 200 그램(깐 바지락)

칼국수 3인분

다시마 손바닥 사이즈 4장

다진 마늘 큰 두 술

애호박 1/4 개

송이버섯 100 그램

계란 2개

후추 약간

새우젓갈과 국간장

조리법:

먼저 물을 끓여 칼국수를 삶아 놓는다. 다 삶아지면 씻어 찬 물(얼음 투척 된 물)에 한번 더 씻는다.물이 빠지게 소쿠리에 건져 놓는다.

남비에 물 10컵을 넣고 깨끗이 씻어놓은 다시마 조각을 넣고 끓인다. 다 끓으면 마늘을 넣는다.

먼저 씻어서 준비해 놓은 바지락과 굴을 넣는다.  그 다음에 칼국수를 넣고 애호박을 채로 썰어 넣는다. 송이버섯도 가늘고 길게 썰어 넣는다. 계란 두 개를 깨서 잘 풀어서 끓고 있는 국수 위에 얹는다.

간은 국간장으로 하는데, 먼저 새우젓갈을 한 큰술 넣은 후, 후추를 뿌리고, 다시 간을 본 후, 국간장으로 마무리한다.

여름철 특히 코로나로 바깥 외출과 외식 문화가 다시 자유로워질 때까지 집 요리를 하여 함께 식사하며 가족과 더 단단한 유대를 쌓고 시간을 함께 하는 지금이 언젠가는 또 하나의 추억 앨범에 고스란히 저장될 것이란 것을 의심치 않는다.

A Cup of Poem~~ Cicada/Henry Seo

百年林樹一旬生

晝夜不休求道聲

只有黃衣長嘯去

莫非羽化上天行

(庚韻:生,聲,行)

매미

백년을 사는 나무에

고작 열흘 살면서

밤낮으로 쉬지않고

소리 높여 길를찾네.

노란 허물 덩그런데

휘파람도 잦아드니

아마도 신선이 되어

하늘길에 올랐구나

백년림수일순생

주야불휴구도성

지유황의장소거

막비우화상천행

立秋

24번째 중 13번째 절기

매미를 그리워 하면서…

(서형삼 시인)

(Photo from Google Images)

A woman was traveling to Istanbul from Dulles airport on Friday and reported carrying $5,000.

Customs and Borders (CBP) officers then checked her carry-on bag to find $30,000 more.

The total seized was $35,016.

There is no legal limit on the amount of money a US citizen can carry out of the country.

However, CBP requires that any amount above $10,000 be reported.

Those who wish for the return of money must prove both the source and intended use are legitimate.

CBP seizes $207,000 daily for illicit purposes everyday.

Trump’s German ambassador pick known for racist comments

Photo from Wikipedia

Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor is a decorated combat veteran, author and frequent guest on Fox News. He claimed that Muslim migrants were coming to Europe to eventually turn Europe, criticizing Germany for giving welfare benefits to “unwanted Muslim invaders”.

This comes as Trump plans to remove 12,000 troops from Germany and after news of German Chancellor Angela Merkel on state phone calls.

Within US, Macgregor often made anti-immigrant comments, especially toward Mexico, and wished to institute martial law at the US-Mexico border.

However, the Senate is already opposing this nomination, as his comments likely disqualify him from any government office.

It is unclear whether Mr. Macgregor will serve as the German ambassador based on his controversial views and his pro-military views may hinder his nomination.

Photo captured from Weather.com

Isaias Hits the Carolinas and East Coast.

Category 1 hurricane Isaias narrowly passed by Florida, but its slight shift east now puts both South and North Carolinas at its path for landfall.

Its wind is expected to hit somewhere up to 70 mph, with flood warnings in effect up to Maine.

DC metro area including Northern Virginia and Maryland can expect rainfall of anywhere from 2-6 inches. People are being told to evacuate the Carolinas while mindful of the dangers of COVID-19 by wearing masks and carrying hand sanitizers.

This hurricane will downgrade to a tropical storm as it passes up the northeast coast to Maine, according to Weather.com.

Covid-19’s Real Problem: Organ damage

As US sees 150,000 deaths from COVID-19, some of those who are for quick reopening tout the relatively low death percentage rate as an argument against the severity of COVID-19. However, those who are recovering from COVID-19 show something more sinister from coronavirus infection: organ damage.

Two German studies found that many patients recovering from COVID-19 had heart abnormalities that didn’t exist before. The study included 100 patients from the University of Hospital Frankfurt COVID-19 Registry.

1/3 on the registry recovered at the hospital, while the other 2/3 recovered at home; however, in the 78 of the original 100, there were now heart abnormalities, with 60 of them showing inflammation in the heart muscle from COVID-19.

This abnormality would not be found on the echograms more frequently used to detect heart abnormalities.

Such results are quite damaging; those who have this weakness will likely require more extensive treatments and be at risk for abnormal heart beats and other heart problems.

So yes, maybe COVID-19 only kills around 1 percent of those infected; however, the true harm of COVID-19 isn’t necessarily the fast death, but the lasting impact on the majority of those that recover from the disease; mostly, the weakening of the organs in the rest of the body.

Pickling: Prepping Greens During Pandemic Winter

(양배추 피클)

오는 겨울은 다른 해의 겨울보다 더 가혹한 겨울이 올 지도 모른다는 생각이 든다. 코로나바이러스 백신이 개발 되고 있다고 하지만 서민들에게 공급될 때까지 그 기간을 우리는 알 수 없기 때문이다. 올 겨울이 오기 전에 미리 준비를 해 두어야 할 것들을 언급해 보자.

1.독감 예방, 폐렴 예방 주사를 미리 맞자.

2. 비상 식량, 쌀, 밀가루, 콩을 비롯한 각종 잡곡을 미리 준비해 두자.

3. 만약을 대비해 항상 비상 준비금을 확보해 두자.

4.생필품을 지금부터 하나씩 사서  넉넉하게 준비해 두자.

5.마스크를 한 사람당 10개씩 만들어서 준비해 두자.

6.평상시에 아스마 ( 천식) 이 있는 사람은 인해일러(호흡보조기구)을 넉넉히 준비해 두자.

7. 가정 상비약 중 (마늘+꿀), 생강조청, 흑마늘과 흑도라지 등을 준비해 두자.

10. 손 세정제를 사서 준비해 두자. 집에서 만들어 보는 것도 하나의 지혜다.

11.소금, 설탕, 이스트, 간장, 된장, 고추장 등도 넉넉하게 준비해 두자.

여기에서 우선 비상용 음식을 열거하지 않은 것 같아 첨언 하자면, 김치를 담아서 김치 냉장고에 담아 놓고 내년 봄 까지 먹을 수 있게 준비해 두는 것도 좋을 듯 하다.

마늘, 오이, 양파, 양배추, 고추, 케일, 브로컬리, 시금치 등을 피클을 만들어 저장해 두는 방법이 있다. 콩은 노란 콩, 검정콩, 완두콩, 녹두콩등 다양하게 구입해서 김치 냉장고에 보관해 놓았다가 때로는 콩나물도 길러서 해 먹고, 또 때로는 두부도 만들어 먹을 수 있다. 물론 콩장은 기본이다.

아무리 세상이 전염병으로 살기 흉흉하다고 할 지라도 미리 준비하고 미리 대비하면, 위험에 노출될 확률이 그만큼 낮아질 수있다고 생각한다.

유비면 무환이라! 항상 미리미리 준비하고 예비하면 환란이 닥친다 하더라고 걱정하지 않고 유연하게 대처할 수 있다고 우리는 그렇게 믿어왔고 또 그렇게 믿고 있다. 누구 말대로, 당근이기 때문이다.

위기를 잘 극복하여 이 기간이 지나면 우리 모두 새 해 2021의 봄, 화안한 봄, 맞이하길 바래본다.
