    In Jong Ko | 고태호 | Younghoon Kang | 2011, 7(4) | pp.1~22 | number of Cited : 3
    The frequency and scale of disasters is increasing due to increasing uncertainties and complexities of disasters. Many discussions are carried out to reorganize the disaster management system for efficient response to the changes in disaster environment, but it is necessary to discuss the most important steps of disaster management and the most important activities of disaster management before reorganizing the system. This study analyzed the priorities of each step of disaster management and the activities in each step. The AHP technique was used to analyze the priority and Jeju Special Self-governing Province was selected for the case study. The four steps of disaster management evaluated were prevention/mitigation, preparation, response, and repair and 16 evaluation factors were established for the activities in each step of disaster management. When Priority of disaster management was analyzed, the order was prevention/mitigation (.314) →preparation (.296) →response (.238) →repair (.152) and combined weight and priority of all activities in disaster management were search of preventive policies, such as regulations or laws (.136) → rescue or aid activities (.111) → preventive and safety training (.106) → disaster risk analysis (.087). For efficient response to the changes in disaster environment, it was found that disaster management system should be focused on preliminary prevention rather than post-repair.

    The Current Status and Responses to Fiscal Crisis of Local Governments

    이승철 | 2011, 7(4) | pp.37~56 | number of Cited : 13
    No local government ever experienced fiscal crisis so many times, for the they could procure insufficient sources through the central government. But, local tax revenue, local bonds, expenditure in social welfare expense, and local debts considered on, it is possible for some local governments to go through a fiscal crisis due to worse finance, if economy gets worse. So, it is necessary to construct a response strategy to local fiscal crisis in order to prevent from the local governments' fiscal crisis. First, it is necessary to improve the structure of local tax revenues. The organization concerned has to modify the current local revenue structure, laying an emphasis on revenue items, to increase local tax incomes and secure extra-tax earnings as well as to modify into the structure enhancing self-financial resources. Second, it is necessary to give body to financial burden between the local government and the central government. The organization concerned has to arbitrate expenditure affairs to concrete financial loads between regions and central governments. The organizations concerned has to get inhabitants' approval through a referendum when they issue municipal bonds to secure liability and enhance.Third, the local government has to issue local bonds through civil votes. Fourth, Korea has to introduce the institution of fiscal crisis management. The institutions of managing financial crises are constructing financial crisis management system and introducing financial bankruptcy.

    이호동 | 2011, 7(4) | pp.57~76 | number of Cited : 9
    In recent years, we have witnessed a series of spectacular crises and disasters. The world of crises and disasters seems to be changing. Unfortunately, contemporary societies are becoming more vulnerable to relatively small disturbances. In the international community, there is growing recognition that the focus of crisis management must shift from response- oriented and recovery toward mitigation. In 2004, the Council of Korea Government has enacted the Disaster and Safety Management Act, which incorporates a broader focus based on principles of disaster management process. But, the government requires promote a national strategy that emphasizes intergovernmental cooperation and coordination for crisis management process and hazard risk reduction. Furthermore, the law needed to improve with revisions that the purpose of identifying, assessing, and its to built in crisis management context.

    The purpose of this study is to define the effect of guard's patrol duty time difference on the ability to cope with crisis rapidly. For the study purpose, the study performed wingate test to measure anaerobic physical ability. The results are as follows. First, although average power decreased over patrol duty time, it did not show significant difference. Second, maximum power decreased gradually over patrol duty time. Third, although the time to reach maximum power was delayed gradually over patrol duty time, it did not show significant difference. Fourth, fatigue index increased over patrol duty time. There was a statically significant difference between the time before patrol duty and 1~3 hours after patrol duty. Fifth, maximum power per weight decreased over patrol duty time. It was found that the patrol duty for a long time reduced maximum power per weight. Sixth, average power per weight was highest 1 hour after patrol duty with the time before patrol duty and 3 hours after guard duty in order. Because there was no statistically significant difference, it was found that it did not give a significant effect to average power per weight depending on patrol duty.

    Smartphones are now an essential tool in all sections of European society, from top government officials to businesses and consumers. In EU5 countries (the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy) alone, the number of smartphone users has increased to 61 million. Smartphone have a rich cocktail of feature: an array of sensors, multiple radio and network interface, as well as gigabytes of storage and powerful processors. They are often within a meter of their owner 24 hours a day. In fact, smartphones have already realized many aspects of the vision of ambient intelligence which includes, for example, providing augmented reality applications, applications that adapt to and anticipate the user’s physical environment using smart sensors- even providing smart health applications using biometric monitoring. Overall, smartphone has led to ‘Smart age’ with other digital devices. However, many of the security and privacy issues raised in the context of ambient intelligence apply to smartphones as well. The objective of this study is to allow an informed assessment of the information security and privacy risks of using digital devices in smart age. Most importantly, we make practical recommendation on how to address these risks. In this study we give an overview of the key information security risks and smart age in chapter two. We also categorize the information security risk and provide practical advice to address the risk in chapter three and four. Finally, we conclude with some recommendations for the solution of information security risks in South Korea.

    Implications for Disaster Response Systems of Korean Local Governments - With a Focus on the Case of Hebei Spirit Oil Spill -

    Park Dong Kyun | Cho Sung Je | Soung Jea Hyen | 2011, 7(4) | pp.187~202 | number of Cited : 0
    When a hazard strikes, it does so in one or more local jurisdictions. Local government has the first line of official public responsibility. Local government, therefore, has to develop and maintain a program of disaster management to meet their responsibilities to provide the protection and safety of the public. On 7 December 2007, the Hong Kong registered tanker Hebei Spirit, laden with 209 000 tons of crude oil, was struck by the crane barge Samsung No. 1, whilst at anchor about five miles off Taean on the West Coast in Korea. About 10,500 tons of crude oil escaped into the sea from the Hebei Spirit. Initially, contamination was confined largely to Taean County, South Chungcheong Province; however, over a period of several weeks, mainland shorelines and islands further south became contaminated with the result that much of the Republic of Korea's western coast has been affected to varying degrees. Analysts say that the spill is considered as one of the world's devastating sea pollution cases involving oil. In our contemporary society where people are exposed to potential dangers in every aspect, no one can be free from such dangers. With an increase in human casualties due to disaster, disaster reporting plays a vital role in preventing and minimizing damages. Despite such enormous significance, however, Korean local politics has not performed effectively. In this context, this study analyzed the response problems of local politics in Korea, with the case of Hebei Spirit oil spill in Taean County. And, this study suggests establishing ways and means needed to improve the local government in Korea with the case of Hebei Spirit case.
