How to say hello in korean
Associated Press Published 6:40 AM EST Dec 31, 2018 Revelers around the globe are bidding a weary farewell Monday to an unsettling year filled with challenges to many of the world’s most basic institutions, including politics, trade, alliances and religion.

The Morning Shift All your daily car news in one convenient place. Isn't your time more important? Nissan-Renault boss Carlos Ghosn attempted to oust Nissan’s CEO before his arrest, Elon Musk is mad online at 60 Minutes, auto shows are trying to evolve and much more on The Morning Shift for Tuesday, the 11th of December, in 2018. 1st Gear: You Win or You Die I don’t know how much you readers really care about the palace intrigue at Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi that deposed Carlos Ghosn and landed him in a Japanese jail.

FIRST, an apology. I might have been a little unkind when I said the Hyundai Kona was “hideously overstyled”, “properly naff” and a “modern-day Rover Streetwise”. I was, of course, talking about the fussy petrol Kona, so it still applies. But the all-electric Kona, on the other hand? That’s different. That’s handsome. The front end is calmer and smoother and less Halfords without the big grille, stick-on plastic and the third set of lights. I like it. But there’s more. Hyundai should also be applauded for producing the first long-range electric car for the masses. Super Bowl LII advert reveals an unlikely hero with Hyundai Kona Now let’s compare and contrast. The 64kWh Kona costs £30,000 and has a genuine real-world range of 259 miles. That’s further than a Jaguar I-Pace, for half the price. And two postcodes further than the 40kWh Nissan Leaf for a little more. You don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to work … [Read more...] about Hyundai’s all-electric Kona is handsome – and packed with tech from infotainment system to USB ports
Like so much about North Korea at the time of one of the most historic world summits in history, life at the nation's embassy, nestled in the leafy West London suburbs of Ealing, is still shrouded in mystery. As this week's potentially world-changing summit in Singapore takes place between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, our reporter Martin Elvery paid a visit to the embassy. Perhaps you wouldn't expect North Korea - a famously secretive nation widely seen as having the most brutal dictatorship in the modern world - to have an embassy at all in the UK, let alone in Ealing. But perhaps the strangest thing about the embassy is just how easy it is to find. Given North Korea's well publicised secrecy, you might expect that its embassy would be hidden away in some kind of bunker, but a quick search of Google gives you the location and there's a big bronze sign next to the front door which reads Embassy & Office of DPR Korea. It's all rather obvious. I walk towards the embassy, along … [Read more...] about The mysterious Ealing house that’s home to North Korea’s embassy
