If you’ve got a junk email folder full of spam, there’s nearly a 10 percent chance it came from a computer in India, the world’s new top spam producer.India claimed the unwanted crown from the U.S. in the security firm Sophos’ most recent “Dirty Dozen” report of the top spamming countries between January and March. Rounding out the infamous top five are South Korea, which accounts for 8.3 percent of spam, and Indonesia and Russia, both of which distribute 5 percent of the spam clogging up inboxes.Trailing Russia are Italy (4.9 percent ), Brazil (4.3 percent), Poland (3.9 percent), Pakistan (3.3 percent), Vietnam (3.2 percent), Taiwan (2.9 percent) and Peru (2.5 percent).[The 10 Biggest Online Security Myths — And How to Avoid Them]According to Sophos’ chief technical officer Graham Cluley, the computers in these high-spamming countries might be sending out their junk messages without the complicity of the computers’ actual owners.“The vast majority of spam comes from home computers that have been compromised by hackers, and commandeered into a botnet,” Cluley explained.Botnets, short for “robot networks,” function like automated zombie armies; infected with a malicious piece of software that puts them under the control of a remote operator, they carry out the orders of the command-and-control server — including sending mass amounts of spam emails — all without the computer owner’s knowledge.

Springhill Group: Adventures in Parenting Abroad Part 1: Knocked Up

I arrived in Korea from my native U.S. at exactly 32 weeks pregnant. I traveled literally the last day my midwife would allow it, not that she’d have much say now that I was going to be approximately 8,300 kms away. We clutched her handwritten note granting me permission to travel as we checked in at Sea-Tac International Airport, in case the airline, upon observing my giant belly, refused to allow me to board for fear that I’d birth my baby reclined in seat 10A.
We had no such issues and, perhaps due to my excessive and neurotic obsession with water-consumption, I was barely even swollen when we touched down 11+ hours later at Incheon. After a day or two of rest and internal clock readjustment, I set out to explore my new home. My first few days wandering around led me to a few possible conclusions about pregnancy in Seoul. I – or more accurately, my belly – was stared at each time I left the apartment and I noticed very few other pregnant women. I thought perhaps a) there really weren’t that many pregnant women (given that South Korea has the lowest birth-rate in the developed world this seemed like a reasonable conclusion), or b) women did not leave the house when they were pregnant (thus the stares).
After a few more days of wandering I discovered that there were in fact quite a few pregnant women around, I just hadn’t been able to see their bellies under the shapeless tent-like maternity get-up they were sporting combined with the very small (by Western standards) size of their pregnant bellies. My pregnant sisters were in fact everywhere, hidden in plain site. Upon realizing how my skills of observation had initially failed me, I decided I needed to do some investigating of what pregnancy in Korea was all about. What follows, for your information and reading pleasure, is what I learned through both experience (read: trial and error), and through hard-hitting and in-depth (read: rude and invasive) questioning.

Springhill Group: Stem Cell Treatments in South Korea: Cartistem & RNL Bio Stem Cell Deaths

A new batch of stem cell-based medicines—only the world’s second so far—is set to be approved this month by South Korean authorities.
Two South Korean biotechnology firms expect their stem cell drugs—Cartistem, a treatment of damaged cartilage produced by Medipost Inc. and a stem cell-based anal fistula drug by Anterogen Co.— to be approved by the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA)
Medipost’s Cartistem is a drug for treating degenerative arthritis and knee cartilage defects.
“We are currently reviewing documents additionally submitted by each company. Permission will be issued sooner or later,” a KFDA official said on condition of anonymity.
If Cartistem and Anterogen’s anal fistula treatment medicine get the green light, they could be available on the market within a month or two, according to market watchers.
According to experts, because the drugs do not use analogous stem cells from patients, these can be mass-produced and its quality can be maintained better but stem cells from other people.
Last July, South Korea became the world’s first country to approve a stem cell-based drug called Hearticellgram-AMI that is used to treat acute myocardial infarction.
The drug is produced by FCB-Pharmicell, a company based in Seongnam, south of capital city Seoul.
*****Stem Cell is a Medicine: Korean Supreme Court Ruling04 November 2010
Are stem cells considered as medicines? If you are in South Korea, the answer — according to a recent Supreme Court decision — is “Yes”. Hence, stem cell therapies must require approval from the Korea Food and Drug Administration before they are administered on patients.
