Saying goodbye to your pets is not easy, but what if it will take them to a better place, beyond what you can offer? The bear house offers playful activities, and direct access to the semi-wildlife area That’s exactly the dilemma faced by Trần Văn Trách last week who has been keeping two bears as pets for a decade. He was urged to give them up, do the right thing, and let the majestic creatures live out their twilight years in the best possible habitat. Hidden away off the beaten track in the picturesque Ninh Binh province is a sanctuary for bears. The Four Paws Viet centre offers the best possible option for these animals, many of whom have seen very little their entire lives other than the inside of a cage. To convince Trách, from the mountainous province of Thái Nguyên, that he was doing the right thing, he was given a guided tour of the centre where staff explained in great detail why their option was far better for the … [Read more...] about Owner gives up captive bears to sanctuary
Why bearing is used
VietNamNet Bridge – A lot of low cost mobile phone models have been advertised as having been integrated with many modern features. However, in fact, the features of connecting the community cannot be used. Low cost mobile phones are referred to the mobile phones with the sale prices of less than 1.5 million dong. The manufacturers commit that though the products are cheap, they still have integrated applications which can meet the requirements of modern people, such as searching on Google, chatting via Yahoo and sending and receiving mails.Advertised features sound good Not all low cost mobile phones have the above said integrated applications. Manufacturers will decide which applications to be integrated into their products which target different classes of customers.

More than 80 people from Viet Nam and around the world gathered together on their bicycles last Saturday in the name of a good cause. Bears romp in a Viet Nam Bear Rescue Centre sanctuary. Photos courtesy of Animals Asia Apart of the National Park is home to the Viet Nam Bear Rescue Centre (VBRC), which has made headlines around the world after recently being threatened with closure following a land dispute. The centre is run by the NGO Animals Asia, who have been campaigning to stop bear bile farming for over a decade now. Their message has spread quickly through the country in recent months with word of mouth building, hence the large crowd who turned out on their bikes to ride for the bears. One of the participants was Bodo Klingenberg, general manager of the capital's MGalery de l' Opera.

An important recent incident persuaded me to write this piece. Yakabe Yoshinori, Japan’s deputy general consul in Ho Chi Minh City, held a meeting with Dong Nai Province authorities on February 14 to discuss construction of Long Thanh International Airport. It was reported that the Japanese government is still undecided whether to provide official development assistance funding for the project. At the meeting, Yoshinori said his government has not made a final decision because the airport remains controversial in Vietnam. Some people are calling for upgrading Tan Son Nhat International Airport in nearby Ho Chi Minh City instead of building a new one in Dong Nai. I am frustrated by the whole thing, especially the criticism of the construction of Long Thanh. I had thought that the criticism lacked conviction and would not have a significant bearing on the decision to go ahead. I did not expect it to end up affecting the Japanese government’s decision on assistance for what … [Read more...] about Why don’t we close Tan Son Nhat airport?
Thuc was cooking a white fish with a little vegetable oil, a table spoon of sugar and some crushed garlic. “I need these additives to make the dish tasty” he whispered to himself. He stirred the contents round and round. Half an hour later, he had made a light-yellow gruel. Although he wasn’t much of a cook, he had tried to make a nutritious bowl for his bed-ridden mother. “Is your father all right?” she asked her beloved son anxiously. She had been laid low in bed for six years, putting a lot of stress on the family. While still healthy, she had been thrifty with her meager wages of less than four million dong a month plus her husband’s five million dong income. She sometimes saved as much as thirty million dong per year. * * * Unluckily a stroke had left her totally paralysed. The family’s savings were quickly swallowed up by medical bills. With no money left to pay for treatment, she just lay in her gloomy house year after year. Two years … [Read more...] about Blood is thicker Most Recent News
