Born in 1990, into a simple farming family, Tuan Anh soon developed his interest in studying animals and plants. Tuan Anh has a special interest in scorpions, centipedes and reptiles, such as crocodiles, snakes, and Tokay geckos. He found out that these animals are friendly and not at all frightening as he had thought. He started making clips of them with the aim of providing people with a source of reference on biological diversity. He would also like his clips to be entertaining for children and inspire their love for nature and animals.

Pham Thanh Giau, police chief of Dat Do District, said the team would meet Le Huu Thuy, who had been driving a car when he was stopped by two officers, to hear his allegations.

How to dodge a buffalo on a Wave By Michael Smith in HCMC The ubiquitous Honda Wave in Vietnam doesn’t usually get a look-in when it comes to making the two wheel trek between Saigon and Hanoi. Most foreign adventure-tourists go for the classic style, for example the old Russian Minsk, in the belief that motorbiking isn’t real unless you can wrap your knees around a petrol tank. On my 5000km zigzagging tour of Vietnam’s highways from Saigon to the North – I opted for the Wave. My reasons were common sense – it’s a cheap, common bike so parts and mechanical know-how are available everywhere. The step-through section in front of the seat is also great for putting the luggage if I don’t mind making my legs more bowed than they already are. I don’t have to strap that luggage down like I would on a rack on the back of a regular motorbike; I can just balance it there – local style. This creates more ease when I’m packing and … [Read more...] about How to dodge a buffalo on a Wave
Here are some things you could learn about black Americans from the recent statements and insinuations of Republican presidential candidates, Republican congressmen and Republican-friendly radio personalities: Black people have lost the desire to perform a day's work. Black people rely on food stamps provided to them by white taxpayers. Black people, including Barack and Michelle Obama, believe that the US owes them something because they are black. Black children should work as janitors in their high schools as a way to keep them from becoming pimps. And the pathologies afflicting black Americans are caused partly by the Democratic Party, which has created in them a dependency on government not dissimilar to the forced dependency of slaves on their owners. Judging by these claims, all of which have actually been put forward recently, here is a modest prediction: This presidential election will be one of the most race- soaked in recent history. It is already more race-soaked … [Read more...] about How to listen for racism on the campaign trail
VietNamNet Bridge - Policy makers realize that high inflation is the biggest threat to the national economy, especially after the adjusted exchange rate. Therefore, keeping a rein on inflation rate becomes the priority. Reducing interest rates to fight inflation? According to Deputy Chair of the National Assembly's Economics Committee Vu Viet Ngoan, in the second half of 2010, even though the exchange rate was stable, the consumer price index (CPI) for the whole 2010 still reached 11.75 percent. Therefore, the latest exchange rate increase of 9.3 percent will certainly have a big impact on the national economy. Therefore, Ngoan has urged policy makers to introduce price control measures to prevent sharp increases. "If we can learn from price control performance of the previous years, keep the financial and monetary markets stable, the seven percent inflation rate in 2011 will be possible, though this will be a very complicated task," Ngoan says. Bui Kien Thanh, a well … [Read more...] about How to keep a rein on inflation?
