1. WHO triggers highest alert on monkeypox
 GENEVA -- The World Health Organization on Saturday declared the monkeypox outbreak, which has affected nearly 17,000 people in 74 countries, to be a global health emergency -- the highest alarm it can sound.
*affect: 영향을 미치다
 "I have decided that the global monkeypox outbreak represents a public health emergency of international concern," WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press conference.
 He said a committee of experts who met on Thursday was unable to reach a consensus, so it fell to him to decide whether to trigger the highest alert possible.
*unable: ~할 수 없는
*consensus: 합의, 의견 일치
*trigger: 방아쇠, 촉발시키다, 작동시키다
 "WHO's assessment is that the risk of monkeypox is moderate globally and in all regions, except in the European region where we assess the risk as high," he added.
*assess: 재다, 평가하다
2. Soju comes back stronger, pricier
 With rapper Jay Park‘s recently-launched Won Soju becoming a phenomenal hit, soju is getting a premium makeover.
*launch: 시작하다, 개시하다
*makeover: 단장, 변신, 변모
 For long, the Vodka-like liquor has been loved for its accessibility (a bottle costs just about $1) and versatility (think of the boilermaker known as somaek or all the other variations,) but the latest renditions are for more special, aiming to create a new sub-genre of soju.
*boilermaker: 보일러 만드는 사람, 폭탄주
*rendition: 연주, 주법
 Questions remain whether the premium versions will be more than a passing fad, winning over the hearts of soju lovers who are accustomed to cheap green bottles.
 Reporters and editors at The Korea Herald tried four different types of premium soju you can get from convenience stores to find out their pros and cons.
*convenience store: 편의점
*pros and cons: 장단점
