Administration, December 2013, after selecting Jeju women divers’ culture to
the applicant Korea representative brand of UNESCO, cooperated continuously
with the Jeju Island to register it and finally last year, UNESCO in March 2014
they made it successful. Explain several effects that a cultural heritage
registration can bring?
UNESCO is an association that selects
valueable customs or objects. A lot of countries are into advertising their
treasures. For instance, Korea wanted to make the custom of women divers a
selected custom. Why are countries trying so hard? What effects can cultural
heritage registration bring?
First, it can bring attention. Customs are
very precious for a country because it contains the history. With attention, a
fading custom can become alive and continue to show the country’s spirit.
Second, it can bring in money. Many people
who follow the custom is very poor. By making the custom a cultural heritage,
they can earn money. With that money, they can work harder to spread their
Third, it can make citizens be loyal to
their country. When their custom is selected, the nation will feel pride of
their customs. Naturally, this will result into loving their country.
Cultural heritage registration gives a lot
of benefits. By UNESCO, it is appropriated to give interest in one’s customs.
As the age group using smartphones goes down, people are worrying about side
effects of overuse by children. One research says smartphone distribution rate
has been sharply rising recently for children and teenagers, of 50% for
elementary school students and of 80% of middle and high school students.
Explain what the bad results are and what you can do to prevent these problems.
Go out on the streets. What do you see?
Cars? Shops? People? What are people doing? It is most likely for them to use
their phones. The problem is that even young children are having side effects
from phones. There are a lot of bad results due to smart phones.
First, it is health. When you use a phone,
most people use it with their neck down. This can result in a disk. Eyesight
can become bad, too. When people see at the screen so long, their eyesight will
become worse. Also, if you don’t move a lot while using smart phones, you will
become more and more fat.
Second, smart phones cause a problem in
studying. Addicted people can’t stop, thinking about their phone even when they
aren’t using it. Lack of concentration will naturally give a bad grade.
Finally, privacy can be shown. Voicefishing
is one of the examples. There are a lot of news about Internet shops’ lack of
information security. It is easy for hackers to know private information when
you use your phone to buy things.
To prevent this, we should try harder to
not be addicted to smart phones. Regulating the time is a good idea. Ask adults
for help if you need to. Don’t save important information in your smart phones.
Only doing basic things will help you prevent a lot of side effects. It is true
that smart phones give a lot of benefits. However, when you use a smart phone,
you should always be aware of the side effects. With a little of recognization,
your smart phone world will become safe!
