Chaebol “a South Korean conglomerate” is a direct borrowing from Korean and is composed of chae “wealth, property” and pŏl “clique, faction.” However, while chaebol is a Korean term, its origins lie across the Sea of Japan; chaebol reflects the Korean pronunciation of the kanji characters that are used in Japanese to spell the word zaibatsu “a large industrial or financial conglomerate of Japan,” making chaebol the Korean loan translation of zaibatsu. Both chaebol and zaibatsu originated as borrowings from Middle Chinese dzoi “wealth” and bjot “powerful family” (compare Mandarin Chinese cái and fá). Chinese is a member of the Sino-Tibetan language family, and though neither Japanese nor Korean belongs to this family, earlier versions of the Chinese language were once heavily influential on the non-Sinitic languages of East Asia. Chaebol was first recorded in English in the 1970s.
HOW IS CHAEBOL USED?
South Korea’s family-run conglomerates are facing calls for a shakeup in their governance .… The conglomerates known as chaebol have come under the reform buzz saw before, only to emerge bigger and stronger than ever.

Officials worry that as firms such as Naver, which began life as a search engine, and Kakao have expanded into anything from ride-hailing to personal finance, they have picked up the bad habits of the chaebol. These sprawling conglomerates were instrumental in making South Korea rich and continue to dominate its economy. But they are notorious for murky governance structures, oligopolistic business practices and close ties with the political elite.“SOUTH KOREA’S GOVERNMENT SEES TECH FIRMS AS THE NEW CHAEBOL,” ECONOMIST, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021

Well, today we are going to a pumpkin patch and an apple orchard. I can’t wait neither can the kids. It is good I think the health field trips every once in a while . We made books about apples and their life cycle yesterday so hopefully the kids will retain some of that.
But here’s the thing — it’s a hell of a lot harder to keep the pounds off when all of fall’s festive temptations arise. Halloween treats, Thanksgiving meals and holiday parties offer a well-deserved opportunity to indulge. It’s been a long year. You’ve earned it. You’ll work it all off in January, you say.

I remember being in second grade and standing on my seat to my desk telling the class something very special. It was during a party for someone’s birthday. What I was telling my classmates was that I was adopted. I remember this kid asking me what that meant. Now this was a big topic for … Continue reading I’m “Special”
When you grow up not knowing from whom you came from, this being my case since I was adopted, you feel like you are living in someone else’s life. It is easy to feel weird or awkward.
