Cornealious "Mike" Anderson was convicted of armed robbery in 1999 and was sentenced to 13 years in prison, but never served due to a clerical error.

"I believe that if we allowed somebody to avoid an incarceration sentence, it's just a slippery slope,’" said the prosecutor, and he's right. But it was the state's fault, and Mike has since been a productive member of society.

He did commit armed robbery, a serious offense, and should pay for his crimes. But making him serve the next 13 years in prison has no benefit to the society.

녹차맛 라면... 그래도 시험 삼아 해볼까.

라면 담백하게 끓이려면… 

일주일에 라면을 몇개 정도 드십니까? 오늘은 라면을 담백하게 끓이는 법을 알려드리겠습니다.
라면을 끓일 때 녹차 가루나 녹차 티백을 넣으면 기름기가 빠져 담백해집니다. 녹차의 카테킨 성분이 콜레스테롤과 지방질을 감소시킨다고 합니다.
다음 번에 라면 끊일 때 한번 해 보세요.

"Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession;" this is absolutely true. Not only do many doctors discourage students, but medical students discourage college and high school students as well.
Nine of 10 doctors discourage others from joining the profession, and 300 physicians commit suicide every year. When did it get this bad?

It's frightening the level of entitlement people feel when they receive treatment from doctors, whether it's their primary care, surgeon, anesthesiologist, or even just the assigned resident.

Dr. Kaku is right. Visit any of the top universities in the United States and go to the engineering building. Guaranteed the graduate students and Ph.D. candidates are mostly foreign born.

Back in the day, these international students in postgraduate education stayed here because the work and living conditions were significantly better. But now that the environmental gap is narrowing, many of these highly trained experts return to their homes. The so-called "brain-drain" is real.

Story
Tagline
Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games-Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love travelling, although my schedule as a full-time student leaves me little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd) and also run a blog in Korean (http://kkendd.egloos.com). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame.

I visited B-speak in June of 2008, and came accross the pictures and notes I took then while backing up some of my old blog posts. I still vividly remember how good the role cakes were 5 years later. I figured I'd leave an English review in case any English speaking tourists were in the area. The cakes are a little pricey, but definitely worth it. I don't recall exactly which cakes I had, but I tried a few varieties, and they were all amazingly good. Go to B-speak, you'll love it.

Federal Donuts is a famous location for donuts and its signature fried chicken. I heard of the place from television and popular magazines. The chicken was considered to be one of the top 10 in the country on one of the articles I've read. However, neither met my expectation. The donuts are really pretty average. They're not bad, but not as amazing as I heard. I've certainly had better donuts elsewhere. The chicken was also not as outworldly as I expected. Perhaps because I've had actual Korean fried chicken before, the Korean-style chicken Federal Donuts offers had fairly unique taste, but not very memorable. If you're looking for some good Korean chicken, look for them in north Philly near Elkins Park and Cheltenham. They're as authentic as they can get around here. The staff was very kind however. The service was excellent, although the place doesn't have air conditioning, so it can be pretty hot inside. Federal Donuts also uses Square to accept payment, so credit cards are accepted.

Located right by Rittenhouse Square, Devon Seafood Grill specializes in seafood, but they also serve steaks and other food. I visited on an early Sunday afternoon and had the salmon on their brunch menu along with some calamari as the appetizer. The food was quite good, and the decor and service fitting for the price. Also, if you use Foursquare, be sure to check in for special offers. I checked in and discovered that I was eligible for a dish of free calamari.

There was only one clerk, and the service was naturally really slow. There were about twenty people in line, and the office showed no intention of calling for more clerks out to the desks. The office is also disorganized and messy. The one clerk I met, however, was very kind, which saved this location from getting a "poor" from me.

Nom Nom Ramen serves authentic Japanese Ramen. There are places that claim that they serve real Asian cuisine when they actually don't, but Nom Nom isn't one of those. The ramen here is truly what you'd see in Japan. The only thing I wish from Nom Nom is that they accept credit cards. This restaurant is cash-only.

Pat's King of Steaks is a historical place. They consider themselves as the originators of the Philly Cheese-steak Sandwich. Despite the history however, I didn't think the food was any better than any other sandwiches found in Philadelphia. That isn't to say that it was bad - the sandwich (or hoagie, as it is called in Philly) was quite good, I just didn't think it was any better than others. What was notable is actually the poor service. The location attracts lots of tourists due to its history, so the place was naturally very crowded despite being a weekday afternoon. However, I don't think that justifies their terrible service. The people at the counter were very rude, and yelled at those who didn't have the money ready. While on the subject, it's cash-only here. Pat's King of Steaks is worth a visit, but I don't think I'll be a regular.
