In the wake of this week’s sinking of the Sewol ferry, an editorial in Friday’s Chosun Ilbo excoriated South Korea’s seeming indifference to the need for stricter safety regulations and improved emergency response training:

The behavior of the ferry’s captain and many of the crew, who were responsible for the lives of hundreds of passengers, raises the question whether it was unique to this tragedy. In emergencies like a sinking ship, passengers panic and lose their ability to make decisions. On planes, trains or other form of public transportation, those responsible need to be trained regularly and be well-versed in how to deal with emergencies.

But here in Korea, how many people in such positions actually know how to operate a fire extinguisher or administer resuscitation? These terrible tragedies keep happening because Korean society has focused only on fast progress, while treating safety regulations as a hindrance. The government, businesses and the whole of society need to reflect on these fatal shortcomings.

Today (April 17), astronomers announced the discovery of Kepler-186f, the first truly Earth-size alien planet ever found in a star’s “habitable zone” — that just-right range of distances where liquid water could exist on a world’s surface.
