Hosts Nghe An beat Dong Thap

QĐND – Monday, July 26, 2010, 21:37 (GMT+7)

Song Lam Nghe An (SLNA) scored twice in a space of seven minutes to beat Dong Thap 2-0 in the 21st round of the V-League at Vinh Stadium yesterday, July 25.

Despite being the away team, Dong Thap had begun the match feeling confident after a recent string of wins. The team hoped a win propel them to the top of the rankings.

But SLNA shot those dreams down, earning the victor’s three point to climb out of the middle position in the rankings.

SLNA’s Quang Tinh opened the score in the fourth minute, shooting past goalie Tan Truong of Dong Thap. Motivated by the early goal, SLNA players launched a series of attacks, scoring the second goal in the 11th minute thanks to Trong Nghia.

After the half-time break, the visitors raised their hopes of levelling the score when SLNA’s Huy Hoang received a second yellow card for a clumsy tackle. However, Dong Thap’s attacks were repelled by the hosts’ defenders with both teams failing to score in the second half.

At other V-League matches, Da Nang tied with Ninh Binh 1-1 at Chi Lang Stadium, while two-time champions Hoang Anh Gia Lai lost to Navibank Sai Gon 0-1 at Pleiku Stadium.

Binh Duong lost to Ha Noi T&T 0-2 at Go Dau Stadium, Dong Tam Long An defeated Nam Dinh 1-0 at Long An Stadium and Thanh Hoa clinched a victory against Khanh Hoa 3-2 at Thanh Hoa Stadium. A high-scoring match also saw Hoa Phat Ha Noi beat Hai Phong Cement 4-3 at Hang Day Stadium.

Ha Noi T&T now lead the rankings with 40 points and Nam Dinh ranks at the bottom of the table with 12 points.

Tough US measures needed to beat climate change: experts

In Uncategorized on May 19, 2010 at 5:06 pm

WASHINGTON, May 19, 2010 (AFP) – The United States has to lead the global fight on climate change by breaking with business-as-usual and setting tough standards for the amount of greenhouse gases it emits into the atmosphere, US scientists said Wednesday.

In one of three multi-hundred-page reports on climate change by the National Research Council, scientists said the United States should set a budget that would limit greenhouse gas emissions to a total of between 170 and 200 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent between 2012 and 2050.

That limit would correspond to a reduction of US emissions from 1990 levels by 80 to 50 percent, depending whether the upper or lower “budgetary level” is chosen, and would require “a major departure from business-as-usual emission trends,” the report said.

US emissions have been rising at a rate of one percent per year for the past three decades, and in 2008 reached around seven gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent.

Even if emissions stuck at the 2008 rate and if the higher budget target of 200 gigatons was chosen, the US would exceed its emissions budget by 2041.

The NRC report urged the US to lead the way on reducing emissions so that other nations will follow, the scientists said.

“Although limiting emissions must be a global effort to be effective, strong US actions to reduce emissions will help encourage other countries to do the same,” they said.

The cap-and-trade system — where a total level of allowable domestic emissions is set, companies are given emissions quotas, and the small polluters can sell their surplus to firms that exceed theirs — was one of the most effective ways of reducing emissions, the report said.

Cap-and-trade was declared dead by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham two months ago, but a climate bill proposed this month by Democratic Senator John Kerry and Independent Joe Lieberman proposed setting up just such a system, even though it did not call it by name.

The senators’ plan would cut US carbon emissions by 17 percent by 2020 from 2005 levels, going up to 83 percent by 2050.

The scientists warned, though, that putting a price on carbon would only work if the United States also improves energy efficiency, speeds up the development of renewable energy sources, develops new-generation nuclear power, and retrofits, decommissions or replaces facilities that belch greenhouse gases into the air.

One of the other reports issued as part of what the NRC calls its most comprehensive climate change study to date reaffirms US scientists’ strong belief that climate change is occurring and is caused largely by human activities.

Climate change skeptics last year seized on a leak of thousands of emails and other documents from researchers at the University of East Anglia in Britain, which appeared to show scientists saying global warming was not as serious as previously thought.

A few months later, another scandal rocked the world of climate science, when the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was accused of basing a report about ice disappearing from the world’s mountain peaks on a student essay and an article in a mountaineering magazine.

The third report released Wednesday urges US policymakers to take steps to reduce the country’s vulnerability to climate change impacts that cannot be avoided, while stressing that adapting to climate change was not an alternative to limiting it.

The trilogy of reports were released as the US and more than 190 other nations continue to hammer out the details of a successor treaty to the Kyoto Protocol, which set a target of industrialized nations cutting emissions blamed for global warming by an average of five percent by the end of 2012 from 1990 levels.

The United States was the only major nation to reject the treaty, arguing it was unfair because it made no demands of fast-growing economies such as China, now the world’s top carbon emitter.

Students who beat schoolgirl to be strictly punished

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2010 at 5:05 am

Tran Nhan Tong High School convened a meeting March 17 in Hanoi to decide penalties for students who had participated in a recent beating caught on camera.

Students of Tran Nhan Tong high school attend class outdoors. Last week, a video clip was circulated on the Internet showing a girl from the school violently beating another female student.

The video clip, circulating on the Internet since March 10, shows a girl from the school grabbing the hair, dragging and kicking the face of another female student in a public park.

It also shows several other students sitting on surrounding benches, watching and recording the incident. Some even join in to beat the girl.

The Hanoi Department of Education and Training March 16 met with school officials and students who appeared in the video.

Nguyen Hiep Thong, director of the education department, said he was angry after watching the clip as the incident took place in a public area, yet no adults intervened while other students watched indifferently.

He said the involved students had written letters acknowledging their wrongdoings.

The education department has directed schools to hand down strict punishments to all involved students, ranging from warnings to suspensions. In addition, police will impose punishments on those found skipping school.

Earlier on March 12, the education department asked the Hi-tech Crimes Prevention Team to investigate the minute-long video clip of the beating.

The incident also prompted the Ministry of Education and Training to order education departments to take steps to prevent violence among students.

China beat Vietnam in their last Asian Cup qualifier

In Vietnam Sports on January 18, 2010 at 2:59 pm

China defeated 10-men Vietnam 2-1 Sunday in the final game of their Asian Cup qualifying campaign at My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi.

The Chinese, who were already qualified for next year’s Asian Cup in Qatar, scored twice in the first half during the moments the hosts lost concentration. Yang Xu fired for China in a middle of disorders in the 34th minute, and Zhang Linpeng beat Vietnam keeper Quang Huy with a cannon shot two minutes before the break.

Before the first goal, Vietnam midfield Phan Thanh Hung, a player from the U-23 team, challenged China keeper and captain Yang Zhi with a strong shot but Yang denied. 

Ten minutes after the break, Vietnam striker Nguyen Viet Thang was sent off with a red card due to his fault. However, the hosts started to play aggressively.

Midfielder Pham Thanh Luong, a shuttle in the home side, brought to the hosts a penalty in the 72nd minute. Striker Le Cong Vinh converted it to reduce the gap.

From that moment, Henrique Calisto’s 10-men side played rapidly and more aggressively. Both Luong and Vinh got some chances but failed to convert. Just a few minutes after the final whistle, China keeper Yang made a great save when denying a strong shot from midfielder Nguyen Trong Hoang, another player from the U-23 team of Vietnam.

China coach Gao Hongbo said after the game, “Complacency hit my players in the second-half after we built up a two-goal lead.”

“The offensive and defensive lines couldn’t link with each other for a certain period.

Vietnam coach Calisto said his side did not show enough the necessary confidence and desire to win. He said his team looked scared in some moments.

China and Syria in Group D were qualified for next year’s Asian Cup in Qatar, while Vietnam and Lebanon said goodbye.

In the 2007 Asian Cup co-hosted by Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam, the Vietnamese were among the last eight teams.

Vietnam stunned Republic of Korea 1-0 on Nov. 6 in Thailand’s Bangkok in the qualifying round of the Asian U19 football championship 2010, pining high hopes on a berth in the final round.
Minh Tuan’s late goal in the match brought to Vietnam’s U19 team a surprising defeat of Asian powerhouse Republic of Korea.

Playing against the strongest team of group E, Vietnam had to focus on defending and rely on counter-attacks. Tuan finally put Vietnam ahead with a free kick a few minutes before the final whistle. The remaining time was too short for the Korean side to change the score.

Vietnam will play two more games against hosts Thailand on Nov. 8 and Macau three days later. The hosts will play Korea also on Nov. 11, and this is a hard game for the Thais because Korea, after their defeat to Vietnam, want to win their rest two games.

After the Nov. 6 matchday, Thailand ranked first in the group with nine points after three games. Vietnam, also with nine points, were second due to goal difference. Republic of Korea ranked third with six points, followed by Macau (three points). Both Bangladesh and Laos got zero points.

Laos beat Coal to third place

Laos beat Coal to third place

QĐND – Friday, October 23, 2009, 21:14 (GMT+7)

Laos took third place in the International Women’s Football Tournament after beating Coal and Minerals 2-1 in Quang Ninh province’s Cua Ong Stadium on Oct. 22.

As the host, Coal and Minerals needed only a draw to fulfill their goal of being in the top three.

Laos were totally transformed as a team when they chose to go on the attack. Their tactic almost paid off in the eighth minute of the match when Sophavanh Phayvanh fired a shot over goalkeeper Nguyen Thanh Hao but it hit the right upright.

A clear chance missed inspired the visitors, who will host the Southeast Asian Games later this year.

After that near miss, they wasted no time launching another attack.

Laos were given a free kick on the right wing after Vietnamese defenders brought down a Lao striker. The free kick unsettled Vietnam’s Dang Thi Ly, who in trying to head the ball away scored an own goal in the 10th minute.

It was Ly’s second own goal of the tournament. She scored an own goal in the opening match of the tournament on October 16 against Thailand.

It was also Laos’ first goal of the tournament.

Head coach Doan Minh Hai rotated Bui Thi Phuong, Vu Thi Lanh, Le Thi Hien and Le Thi Hoai Thu to test Lao goal keeper Chulapan but she was more than up to the task until the host team scored five minutes after the break. Phuong received a perfect pass from Vu Thi Hien before making a solo run from midfield to the penalty area and levelling the score.

The host team began to take control of the game and Phuong, Tuyet, and Thu created a number of chances, but they all went unconverted.

In the 75th minute, Phuong came face-to-face with Chulapal but the Vietnamese’s shot was too light and was easily saved.

Chulapal then made a great throw to start a counter-attack by Phayvanh who fired a shot into the right corner.

Laos took three points from the game and pocketed 20 million VND (1,450 USD) for coming third. Coal, who finished in second place last year, ended the tournament with three losses.

The final match of the tournament today is between the national teams of Vietnam and Thailand . The winner of the game will take the trophy and a cash prize of 40 million VND (2,900 USD). The runners-up will get 30 million VND.

Iran beat VN 4-0 in under-21 int’l tournament

In Uncategorized on September 28, 2008 at 5:16 pm

HA NOI — Viet Nam failed to make it into the final of the International Under-21 Football Tournament after a 4-0 loss to powerhouse Iran in the semi-finals yesterday.

Viet Nam, who won the championship last year, pulled out all the stops in their match against Iran at Hue city’s Tu Do Stadium yesterday, but proved no match for their powerful rivals.

The hosts had a good start when Nguyen Duc Thien, who scored three goals for Viet Nam in group competition, took an early shot at goal minutes into the game, but the shot was blocked by Iranian keeper Mohammad Bagher Sadeghi.

Although playing defensively, the Vietnamese side lost control of the game by the half hour mark as Iranian players dominated the game with better play.

Iranian captain Rasoul Kor out-jumped Vietnamese defenders to convert a corner kick into a goal by heading the ball into the net, beating keeper Nguyen Thanh Nam.

Viet Nam regrouped and launched more attacks, but the lone striker, Nguyen Duc Thien, could not score despite a few good chances.

After half-time, Mohammad Saleh Khalil Azad made the score 2-0, while striker Jaladin Alimohammadi scored another to put Iran firmly on their way to the finals. In the 87th minute, substitute Soroush Rafiei escaped an off-side trap to get past the Vietnamese goalie before tapping the ball home into an empty net.

Despite of endeavours of Duc Thien, Phan Thanh Hung and Nguyen Phuc Hiep, the hosts failed to find their consolation goal during injury time.

Iran will meet Thailand, who beat Singapore 3-1 in other semi-final yesterday, in the finals tomorrow.

Viet Nam will meet Singapore to battle for third-place.—
