    SONG, HAE RYONG | Hang Min Cho | 2015, 11(6) | pp.45~68 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    This study, targeting Ebola virus that is currently emerging as a risk issue over the world, analyzed the disease report trend of domestic broadcasting media(ground waves, comprehensive channels, and news report channels) in the level of risk communication. Specifically, report characteristics(depth of report, truth of report, coverage path of report, use of news sources in report, and directivity of report) and news frame characteristics(type of frame and content of frame) were examined. As a result of the analysis, both positive and negative aspects of the domestic press’ disease report could be found. First, the positive aspects of the domestic press’ Ebola virus report were that, regarding truth of report, reports were mostly ‘fact-based’ reports, and regarding coverage path of report, the press tried to cover issues by itself rather than to simply use external information. Next, regarding directivity of report, directivity was not deteriorated by the dichotomous logic of ‘positivity’ and ‘negativity’, but was made to keep the balance between them, and regarding type of frame, topic-oriented frame to find solutions considering the social environment was more importantly used than anecdote-oriented frame to analyze incidents in the superficial level. On the contrary, the negative aspects of the domestic press’ Ebola virus report were that the amount of report strongly tended to increase for specific issues(case of Ebola, spread of patients, etc.), the press focused only on fragmentary ‘case(incident)’ report regarding depth of report, and professional medical/science reporters rarely participated in report. In addition, use of news sources in report was mostly concentrated on domestic and foreign governmental institutes, and in the aspect of content of frame analysis, it turned out that ‘risk frame’ focusing on risks through the severity, statistics, and numbers of the Ebola problem was the mostly stressed frame.

    The Effects of Social Capital on the Elderly’s Mortality Rates

    Kim SANG-WEON | 2015, 11(6) | pp.137~152 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    Based on recent sociological and political literature on social capital theory, this study tested the hypotheses that areas with higher levels of social capital and state support will have old people’s lower mortality rates. Korea is an Aging Society with the elderly’s high mortality rates. Although its overall mortality rates are relatively high among the OECD members, the elderly’s mortality rates vary widely in regions. Similarly, the level of social capital provided by local government varies throughout Korea due to the level of financial condition. Using data from Korean regions(n=229) and controlling for other structural variables, Ordinary Least Squares(OLS) regression was employed to estimates the effects of social capital on the elderly’s regional mortality rates. As expected, the results provided some partial support for direct effects of social capital and(or) social support on the elderly’s mortality rates. The findings showed that regions exhibiting high level of social support or social capital were regions with lower level of the elderly’s mortality rates. The findings are discussed in the sociocultural contexts of Korean regional specific circumstances and of the meaning of recent research of social capital and the elderly’s mortality.

    The Crisis of Local Politics and the Possibility of Change of Political Cleavages - Focused on the Regional Cleavage Structure of Busan -

    In Suck Joo | 2015, 11(6) | pp.183~206 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of political cleavages in Korean politics on the local politics in Busan and the possibility of change of previously existing political cleavage structure. This study also tries to find legal-institutional and political reform proposals for normalization and vitalization of Busan’s local politics. In nation-wide level, we can see some surprising electoral results which overcome the strong ‘Yeong-Nam vs. Ho-Nam regional cleavage.’ In Busan, we can witness that the traditional basis of regional cleavage structure has been eroded. From local election to presidential election, for example, the vote mobilization rate of conservative party and candidates has been declined. In contrast, the support for opposition party and candidates has been increased steadily. For a vitalization of local politics in Busan, first of all, political actors have to develop intended strategies to overcome the traditional regional cleavage structure. Especially, the central organization of the opposition party has to build its local party organizations and to provide them with long-term, personnel and material supports. Second, the proportional representative(PR) has to be widely adopted and applied to each election from local to presidential election. This seems to lead the existing two-party competition based the regional cleavage structure to a multi-party competition in local politics.

    How Will a Consumer Sentiment Index on Unsafe Imported Foods Affect Willingness-to-Pay More for Local Foods and Satisfaction with Level on Dietary Life? - Focusing on Agricultural, Fishery, and Livestock Products -

    JUN SANG MIN | 2015, 11(6) | pp.227~243 | number of Cited : 6
    This study examines how a consumer sentiment index on unsafe imported foods influences willingness-to-pay more for local foods and satisfaction with dietary life. The study also investigates the moderating role of socio-demographic variables in the above-mentioned relationship. Using food consumption research conducted by the Korea Rural Economic Institute, this study shows that a consumer sentiment index on unsafe imported foods positively affects willingness-to-pay more for local foods, and this in turn positively influences satisfaction with dietary life. A consumer sentiment index on unsafe imported foods does not significantly affect satisfaction with dietary life, and the mediating role of willingness-to-pay more for local foods was is fully supported. No socio-demographic variables moderate significantly the relationship between the index information and willingness-to-pay more for local foods. Only age significantly moderates the relationship between willingness-to-pay more for local foods and satisfaction with dietary life. The results provide useful data for safety supervision concerning imported foods, enhancement of competition in the local food industry, and safety education for consumers.

    신창현 | Chung Soo Lee | 강재은 and 4other persons | 2015, 11(6) | pp.245~262 | number of Cited : 15
    For the efficient prevention of chemical accidents, the inspection systems of the facilities under the Chemicals Control Act which have being implemented since January in 2015 has been improved, compared to the previous Toxic Chemical Act. The completion inspection of the facilities which finish being installed must be conducted to check if those are suitable according to the safety standards of the facilities from the inspection agencies. Moreover, The regular or irregular inspection of the facilities must be conducted to check if the legitimately installed facilities are suitably operated. The safety diagnosis must be conducted for facilities which are vulnerable to chemical accidents or which created chemical accidents. The newly applied safety inspection system is expected both to reduce chemical accidents and to have significant effects on settling down the safety culture. But, for more efficient operation of the inspection, additional researches must be conducted to avoid duplicated inspection and make advanced inspection methods regarding the amount of hazardous chemicals.

    류호철 | Kim, Doo-hyun | 2015, 11(6) | pp.263~273 | number of Cited : 0
    By analyzing the operation characteristics according to the installation location of the heat detector and the existence of crossbeam, the purpose of this study is to figure out how they affect to the safe evacuation time. For this, the operation time of the detector was measured in case of general fire and oil based fire, respectively, applying 3 parameters of the open and closed conditions and the existence of crossbeam. In the general fire, the results showed 7 seconds difference between open and closed conditions, and 150 seconds of operation delay in maximum depending on the existence of crossbeam. In the oil based fire, the results were similar in two cases of the open and closed conditions, but there were 20 seconds difference in maximum depending on the existence of crossbeam. In case of general fire, the spreading speed of fire was slow, but the spreading speed was fast in the oil based fire, which resulted in these differences. In addition, the number 5 detector which was close to the wall operated most slowly and it was possible to confirm that the existence of wall and crossbeam affected the operation time of the detector. Thus, to secure the safe evacuation time effectively, it is highly required to review the national fire safety code(NFSC) on the clearance distance and design direction of the wall and the crossbeam.

    Park Jong Seok | RHEE, KYOUNGHun | 오창주 and 2other persons | 2015, 11(6) | pp.275~289 | number of Cited : 1
    In South Korea, usage of water expanded as living standard has improved and population grown while economy grew rapidly since 1960s, and subsequently, pollution material has increased. Therefore, importance of sewage facility to prevent leak of polluted material into public water is being emphasized. Recently, recognizing the importance of sewer pipe, South Korean government is pursuing more balanced sewage project through maintenance of sewer pipe. However, maintenance of sewer pipe has positive nature of improving individual citizens’ and society’s living environment, but at the same time, it is difficult to measure the quantitative effect because the outcome is underground even though it costs trillions of won. Therefore, in this research, as for the function of sewer pipe, not only preventive perspective for elimination of rain water but also the importance of prevention of water quality pollution is being recognized, so status of existing sewer pipe is studied, and measures to maintain outdated and defect pipe facilities effectively, and manage the installed large drain pipes effectively are suggested.
