A training class in electronics at Điện Biên Province's Occupational College. — VNA/VNS Photo Anh Tuấn Lê Hồng Quân, Vice Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, talks to Lao Động (Labour) newspaper on the need for students to make the right choice for their future career How do you feel about high school graduates’ tendency to enrol in occupational training institutions rather than to go to university? In 2018, some 2.2 million people, including high school graduates, attended occupational training schools nationwide. Some 540,000 of them attended occupational training college or secondary training college. In the last few years, some 80.5 per cent of the graduates of these institutions immediately go to work following their graduation. This is an indication that students nowadays are becoming more practical. In 2014, about 49 per cent of Vietnamese workers had attended … [Read more...] about Choosing the right career is the key to success

The Hanoitimes - ASEAN must actively respond to its members’ calls on the South China Sea issues. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has not played a significant role in diffusing the heated quarrel among disputants in the South China Sea (SCS), far below what is expected from this group when dealing with a major regional security concern. Illustrative photo But in reality, regional experts argue that ASEAN has interests, responsibilities, and the ability to actively engage in the issue and contribute to the settlement of the disputes, experts said at “The 5th Ocean Dialogue: ASEAN Cooperation in the South China Sea” held on June 18 in Hanoi. ASEAN’s involvement in the South China Sea disputes ASEAN didn’t involve in the SCS, which is called the East Sea in Vietnam, until the end of the Cold War as it was not an immediate security concern of its members. No interest in antagonizing Beijing, ASEAN … [Read more...] about What is ASEAN’s role in settling South China Sea disputes?
Green school represents one of the most significant opportunities for sustainable growth at both the national and global levels, and local developers have begun paying more attention to this concept. The fledgeling segment has great development potential as locals increasingly look for better living quality. Green schools are far more than a large garden with plenty of shade: they are the first step in the education of students to become healthy and responsible global citizens Do Viet Chien, general secretary of the Vietnam Real Estate Association emphasised at a workshop on green schools that, “If you want to have a green city, it needs to have green buildings including green schools that begin with the future in mind, designing a learning experience for students that will prepare them to lead the world toward a healthier, cleaner, and more sustainable future." According to the Vietnam Green Building Council (VGBC) over the past decade, Vietnamese cities have been … [Read more...] about Green school is the way to sustainable development in Vietnam
Nguyen Dang Anh Thi The first time I went to Hanoi was 20 years ago. It was a field trip to test the air quality of the capital city for an infrastructure project subsidized by the Japanese government. We went to a corner of Tran Quang Khai Street to ready our equipment. "You don’t need to do any testing. I assure you the air is still clean," said an old motorbike taxi driver nearby, as we took a tea break. "How do you know?" I asked. "I have worked here all the time, day in day out for the last decade. But here I am, as fit as can be," he said. Then he qualified his statement a bit. "Well I do get sick sometimes, but it’s fine. A pill or two does the trick. If I’m sick for too long, who’s going to feed the family?" he said, laughing. Sounds like an expert, I thought. 20 years ago, all air quality metrics in Hanoi were well within the World Health Organization’s (WHO) standards. From those metrics, we evaluated how air quality would be affected … [Read more...] about We’re dying because we breathe, and solutions are up in the air
Similarities between the Lion Air and Ethiopian Airlines crashes, confirmed by black box data, have focused attention on an anti-stalling system used in the new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft. The crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane has put the spotlight on an anti-stalling system used on the 737 Max 8 aircraft. (AFP/Michael TEWELDE) The Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS) is an automated safety feature on the 737 Max 8 designed to prevent the plane from entering into a stall, or losing lift. Both the Lion Air jet, which crashed in October, killing 189 people, and the Ethiopian Airlines aircraft, which went down a week ago on Sunday, leaving 157 people dead, were fitted with the system. Both planes experienced similarly erratic steep climbs and descents and fluctuating airspeeds before crashing shortly after takeoff. A malfunction of the system was implicated in the Lion Air accident in Indonesia. The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said findings from … [Read more...] about Ethiopian Airlines crash: What is the MCAS system on the Boeing 737 Max 8?
