Two scores and seven years ago, I set foot on American soil in order to pursue my Postgraduate medical training at New York University Medical Center—Bellevue Hospital, New York City, New York. Now, looking back upon the vast time-span of the five decades gone by, I can hardly believe that our national landscape has undergone a sea change. According to an old Oriental adage, “Even Mother Nature changes in a decade’s time,” thus the inevitable changes have turned at least five times over beyond recognition. America as we know it today is a drastically different country from what we observed back in the 60’s: many a thing that was acceptable back then is no longer even permissible, or downright illegal. Indeed, it goes without saying that the last half a century has been both tumultuous and cataclysmal in U.S. history. I have lived in Springfield, IL for 38 years since 1974 in a professional move from Honolulu, Hawaii and I became a U.S. citizen in 1976 when we celebrated the Bicentennial. I am still very grateful to my adopted country for what she has done for me and my family. My two children were born, raised and educated in this blessed nation. Nothing gives me more pleasure and happiness than to see them vigorously strive for their own professional careers. As we live in a diverse, pluralistic society, aptly called “melting pot” or “tossed salad,” I, myself, am always determined to be an active Player in the Great American Game of Life rather than being an idle or passive spectator. For nearly quarter a century, whatever social issues or subjects might come along to grab my attention, I haven’t hesitated to express my personal or professional opinion or viewpoint by writing to the Editor of newspapers, local and national, magazines, periodicals as well as professional journals. My letters and communications number altogether a little over 120. Now, I xxii call them collectively, “JUST MY TWO CENTS.” Most of them were published in the respective media, and my reader’s responses, whether favorable or critical, are also included. If indicated, some references are provided for further elucidation. I am well aware that my voice is feeble or hardly audible like a “voice in the wilderness.” Yet, I believe that I leave behind my footprints on the Prairie that I have traversed thus far. This book would not have come into existence without the loving and faithful support of my beloved wife, Young, who is always the source of my strength. My special thanks go to Aimie Trussell and Ms. Sara Barger who shared unselfishly their precious time with me in the preparation of the manuscript. I will always be grateful to them for their generous help. February 20, 2012 Chansoo Kim, M.D.
If you have recently spent any amount of time with a group of children, you are aware of the behavior crisis we are experiencing in America?s youth. Disrespect, manipulation, rudeness, defiance, and entitlement are characteristics all too common in today?s children. I believe it is time for parents to have a basic, tried-and-true, step-by-step behavior plan?not more research, parental manipulation, and quick-fix approaches. While I do not know how to fix this very serious behavior crisis, I do have some ideas regarding the prevention of the behaviors using a parent-controlled approach?starting the day Mom gave birth! I am not a professional writer, but I am a mother, grandmother, and teacher, and I think an advice book written from this perspective would be unique and appreciated. This is a quick read with a clear, positive message. There are no generalizations or theories?just a simple, parent-controlled plan that is gentle and positive. The purpose of this book is to help parents raise happy, polite, and well-adjusted children. In Grandma?s Two Cents, I focus on three basic training issues?sleeping, eating, and potty training?to teach a fun, healthy approach that will establish lifelong good habits. This basic training is a framework to build future positive healthy behaviors in all areas of a child?s life.

Abe Silverstein's standard response to the question, "So, what kind of work did you do?" is, "How much time do you have?" The story of his life and work experiences, from his childhood as one of seven children of poor immigrant Jews to the boardrooms of corporate America to the recording studios of the music industry to the fields of the small farmer is a quintessential American one. When Two Cents Was Money is his first literary work. He lives with his wife of 64 years, Judy, on the Upper Westside of New York City.
The Collapse of Common Sense: Preservation of Big Oil and the Big Three Automakers. In 2003 "FreedomCAR" (Freedom Cooperative Automotive Research) was created as a public-private partnership between the United States Department of Energy, BP America, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Shell Hydrogen, and The United States Council for Automotive Research (USCAR - a partnership among Daimler/Chrysler, Ford Motor Company and General Motors). What are the oil and automotive corporations doing together? What happened to Toyota's RAV4-EV program that produced 100% electric sports utility vehicles (that's right, SUV's!) that are still running, today, at a cost of two cents per mile? Engineer Nevres Cefo shows how Americans are being systematically misinformed and trapped with only one choice for their future transportation needs: the internal combustion engine and liquid fuels. Can we change the course of where we are going and how we get there? Yes we can, and Cefo shows you how to do it.
