BUSINESS NETWORKS and TELECOMMUNICATIONS The use of networking and telecommunications in the workplace is an essential part of a successful organization. Decisions on how these areas should be implemented need special attention. The applications chosen to support the setup are also important in that these are what will be driving the functionality of the business. Both of these areas will reflect the amount of proficiency increased along with the success rate of using networking and telecommunications in the business.

BUSINESS NETWORKING - is a socioeconomic activity by which groups of likeminded businesspeople recognize, create, or act upon business opportunities. A business network is a type of social network whose reason for existing is business activity. - As an example, a business network may agree to meet weekly or monthly with the purpose of exchanging business leads and referrals with fellow members. To complement this activity, members often meet outside this circle, on their own time, and build their own one-to-one relationship with the fellow member. - Business networking can be conducted in a local business community, or on a larger scale via the Internet. Business networking websites have grown over recent years due to the Internet's ability to connect people from all over the world. Internet companies often set up business leads for sale to bigger corporations and companies looking for data sources. - Business networking can have a meaning also in the ICT domain, i.e. the provision of operating support to companies and organizations, and related value chains and value networks.

LARGE FIRM NETWORKS vs. SMALL BUSINESS NETWORKS Large firms networks spread wider than small business, but the difference between the two types is that to be part of a large firm network you have to achieve a preset level of success, for example fly over to China find out which factory manufactures your favorite product, go to the factory owner, offer to buy a large quantity of the product, he will give you a quote; when he does take that quote and compare to current retail, if it's not lower than the retail market by 300 percent to 400 percent, then this factory is part of a business network, meaning they provide the special price only to the network members. This keeps the real value of the product hidden from the public and only available to the large firms they deal with.

ONLINE BUSINES NETWORKING Businesses are increasingly using business social networks as a means of growing their circle of business contacts and promoting themselves online. In general these networking tools allow professionals to build up their circle of business partners they trust. By connecting these business partners the networking tools allow individuals to search for certain people within their network. Through introductions, the members of these tools then can get in contact with new prospective business partners. Since businesses are expanding globally, social networks make it easier to keep in touch with other contacts around the world. Specific cross-border e-commerce platforms and business partnering networks now make globalization accessible also for small and medium sized companies.

FACE-to-FACE BUSINESS NETWORKING Professionals who wish to leverage their presentation skills with the urgency of physically being present attend general and exclusive events. Many professionals tend to prefer face-to-face networking over online based networking because the potential for higher quality relationships are possible. Many individuals also prefer face-to-face because people tend to prefer actually knowing and meeting who they intend to do business with. Face to face business networking is often facilitated by referral networking clubs.

GENERAL BUSINESS NETWORKING Before online networking, there was and has always been, networking face-to-face. "Schmoozing" or "rubbing elbows" are expressions used among business professionals for introducing and meeting one another, and establishing rapport.

NETWORKED BUSINESSES With networking developing, many businesses now have this as a core part of their strategy. Those that have developed a strong network of connections suppliers and companies can be seen as Networked Businesses, and will tend to source the business and their suppliers through the network of relationships that they have in place. Networked businesses tend to be open, random, and supportive, whereas those relying on hierarchical, traditional managed approaches are closed, selective, and controlling.

BUSINESS NETWORKING in the ICT DOMAIN Companies and organizations, and related value chains and value networks need some sort of IT support. Traditionally, it is provided by software, software packages, ERPs, and/or workflows; presently, also by different types of web-based innovations.

A truly ICT business networking approach rethinks and rebuilds the operating support from scratch, around two key business features: information contributions, to be provided by the activities involved, whether they are performed by human beings, automated tools or jointly by the two, in a coordinated way; and automated information exchanges, to be provided by the TLC network. Information contributions and exchanges, in turn, need to be supported by data storage and access security (signature, encryption, authentication, decryption), which both can be provided either as add-ons or as built-in features.

BUSINESS TELECOMMUNICATIONS Business telecommunications involve devices, networks, and equipment that are used to help businesses connect with customers and colleagues. This can include basic things like telephone and fax, and more recent technologies such as voice over Internet (VoIP) services. The types of telecommunications used may vary from company to company, and will depend widely on the business's individual needs. Telephone and fax services are perhaps the most well known business telecommunications, primarily because they have been around the longest. Even with new trends being used in larger numbers every year, the basic phone and fax system is still viable and relevant for many businesses. This holds especially true for companies who operate locally and do not need costly long distance services. The Internet is also involved with business telecommunications, both as a stand alone feature and as a vehicle for other technologies to be used. Research is primarily done online now as opposed to looking things up in books and other printed references, and emails are regularly sent in lieu of standard letters. The Internet is also convenient for sending instant messages to clients or coworkers rather than waiting for an email reply or phone call.

CERIACO, Cheza B. Foreign Language 1 Traditional Korean Cuisine Korean cuisine as known today has undergone a sea of change along with the social and political revolution and is a culmination of the interaction between the environment and culture. Korean food is usually represented by ingredients of bulgogi and kimchi only. But actually Korean food recipes make up a varied and nutritious diet. Fermented foods like Kimchi and doenjang paste have become highly valued for the medicinal purposes. A typical Korean meal consists of a bowl of rice, a bowl of soup or stew, and some side dishes as accompaniment. But within that basic structure, there is deliciously wide variation for every season and palate. Koreans use a huge range of vegetables from wild greens to the leaves of flowers, everything from the sea including seaweed and jellyfish, and all types of meat and poultry in diverse preparations. Koreans may have hundreds of ways to pickle vegetables and wild greens for long storage, but they also prize raw fish and raw meat dishes

Chapchae is one of the most popular noodle dishes in Korea, and also seems to be the one that Westerners like best. The foundation of the dish is the mixture of the noodles, soy sauce, garlic, and sesame oil. Because mung bean or sweet potato noodles both absorb tons of flavors, you can mix and match the vegetables or meat to your liking. I used broccoli, red peppers, shiitake mushrooms, bulgogi, and onion. Korean dumplings are traditionally made with a beef or pork filling, but chicken and vegetarian dumplings are also popular. Versatile and delicious, mandoo can be boiled, steamed, deep fried, pan-fried or added to soup. They are substantial enough for a main dish, but are also good as snack dishes or a mess-free lunch. Korean bean paste (daenjang) is similar to Japanese miso but is much more pungent and powerful. Daenjang chigae is wonderfully hearty and can be made with almost any vegetables you have on hand. Although this is one dish where I actually prefer the more common zucchini, potato, and pepper combination of vegetables, it is delicious with carrots, other squashes, and turnips as well. Bulgogi is one of the most popular Korean dishes, this thinly sliced meat has a smoky sweet flavor when broiled or cooked on the grill. It's even delicious stir-fried, and the tender beef can be used in anything from Korean sushi rolls (Kimbap) to Stir-fried Noodles (Chapchae). Bulgogi is usually accompanied with lettuce wraps and spicy red pepper paste (Kochujang) for wrapping and spicing up the meat. Hin pap (heen pop; white rice) remains the main staple and is the biggest crop produced in South Korea. It can be eaten in many different ways. There are ogokbap (boiled rice mixed with four grains), yakbap (a sweet rice dish), and over fifty varieties of rice cakes.

Makchang grilled pork large intestines prepared like samgyeopsal and galbi. Often served with a light doenjang sauce and chopped green onions. Popular in Daegu and the surrounding Gyeongsang region. Gamjatang "pork spine stew" a spicy soup with pork spine, vegetables (especially potatoes) and hot peppers with the vertebrae separated. Often eaten as a late night snack but also served for a lunch or dinner. Haejangguk (): a favorite hangover cure consisting usually of meaty pork spine, dried cabbage, coagulated ox blood (similar to blood pudding), and vegetables in a hearty beef broth. Legend states that soon after World War II, the restaurant that invented the stew represented the only place open in the Jongno district when the curfew lifted at 4 A.M. Janchi guksu (): a light seaweed broth based noodle soup served with fresh condiments, usually kimchi, thinly sliced egg, green onions, and cucumbers. Jeongol () : a traditional spicy Korean stew, consisting of various types of seafood and vegetables, generally served on a burner. Kimchi jjigae (): A soup made with mainly Kimchi, pork, and tofu. Common lunch meal or complement to a meat course, normally in a stone pot, still boiling when served. Maeuntang (): a refreshing, hot & spicy fish soup. Japchae (): Boiled dangmyeon or potato noodles, steamed spinach, roasted julienned beef, roasted sliced onion, roasted julienned carrots mixed with seasoning made of soy sauce, sesame oil and half-refined sugar. Jajangmyeon (): A variation on a Chinese extremely popular noodle dish in Korea, made with a black bean sauce, usually with some sort of meat and a variety of vegetables including zucchini and potatoes. Usually ordered and delivered, like pizza. Kalguksu (): Boiled flat noodles, usually in a broth made of anchovies and sliced zucchini.
