Liveshow highlights nation’s love for Uncle Ho

QĐND – Thursday, May 20, 2010, 20:58 (GMT+7)

A liveshow simultaneously televised on the night of May 19 from three locations across Vietnam presented a moving depiction of President Ho Chi Minh, a son of the nation who has devoted his whole life for national independence and people’s happiness.

The show was broadcast live from the Presidential Palace in Hanoi, the Sen Village in central Nghe An province – the place of birth of Uncle Ho and Nha Rong wharf in Ho Chi Minh City, where he departed in 1911 to find ways to free the nation from colonial oppression.

Entitle “Following Uncle’s Journey”, the liveshow was jointly held by the Vietnam Television and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

It is among a series of activities to celebrate the 120 th birthday of Uncle Ho and the 20 th anniversary of the UNESCO recognition of the late President as a hero of national liberalisation and a preeminent man of culture.

Present at the show were Politburo members and Secretaries of the Party Committees as well as officials of the government, Hanoi , Nghe An province and Ho Chi Minh City .

The liveshow at three places of great importance in Ho Chi Minh’s life put together a clear picture of Uncle Ho with rich and vivid details through documentaries, photos, his belongings and stories told by witnesses who had met the late President.

It looked back on the historical landmark in the life of President Ho Chi Minh, when he left the country in 1911, starting a 30-year journey from countries to countries to find ways of liberating the nation.

Having found the right way, he returned in 1941 and led the national revolution the victory of which gave birth to the democratic republic of Vietnam in 1945. The name of Vietnam thus first appeared on the world map. After that, the President continued to lead Vietnam ’s people and armed forces through nine years of struggle against the French colonialists to the final victory with the world resounding Dien Bien Phu battle.

The audience also got new insight into the president’s simple life and his profound love and compassion towards the people and humankind through the display of things that he used in his daily life as well as stories told by those who had had chances to meet the beloved leader, including a long-time bodyguard and a barber who did his haircut.

120 candles were lid in each place of the liveshow and songs were sung to praise Uncle Ho, who lives forever in the mind of every Vietnamese.

US company highlights Vietnam’s potential housing market

QĐND – Saturday, May 15, 2010, 21:20 (GMT+7)

Vietnam’s housing industry has much potential to develop, RNCOS, a US ’s market consulting service company, has said.

In a new report released on May 13 on its official website, RNCOS underlined that Vietnam ’s housing industry is charaterised by massive housing shortage and offers ample scope for developments.

Vietnamese housing market is on the urbanisation process with an increase in the number of households, the reports said.

The report also noted that majority of Vietnamese people do not have their own permanent houses and more than 70 percent of the total residents households nationwide are living in temporary houses without proper housing facilities.

The company estimated that Vietnam will need nearly 20 million houses to meet the country’s increasing demand.

One of factors hindering the industry’s development is the country’s limited financial capacity, according to RNCOS’s experts.

Best-selling German movie from the 1950’s highlights heroic women

In Uncategorized on May 11, 2010 at 8:47 am

As a part of the “German Year in Vietnam” project, a film schedule featuring German blockbuster movies from 1950 to the present,  is set to enliven city cine-fans in the coming months, starting this May with the Slatan Dudow’s Women’s Destiny, described as a touching tragic love story that provides an  understanding about the inner-strength of  women.

A film posterThe film begins with the familiar story of a troubled love affair.  Dudow employs an inconspicuous, didactic method, which is his unique filmmaking “recipe.”  The film’s heroes are exclusively female, as opposed to more typical films which tend to cast heroic roles to male characters.

Four women, Barbara, Anni, Renate and Isa are looking for happiness, as they embark on new lives in post-war  Berlin. Unfortunately, they are all destined to be undone by the womanizer Cony, and subsequently lose themselves in a labyrinth of love.

The young student Barbara falls deeply in love with Conny; Anni becomes pregnant by him him, and Renate is driven to thievery due to her mad love for him. Conny, however, chooses to couple with aristocrat  Isa von Trauwald  and  enjoys  the  luxurious  life  of  the  high  society,  which makes  the  situation  even more captivating …

At the time of its original release, the 104-mins movie hit the German cinema box offices like a storm, inciting an intense debate on the role of women in East Germany.

There is no wonder that Women’s Destiny, or originally known as Frauenschicksale, successfully brought a reward back to its creator, who won the Best Director trophy at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival that year.

The film will be shown just once, at 7.30pm May 11, at District 1’s Institute of Cultural Exchange with France. Tickets are available at its box office and cost VND15,000 each.

Festival highlights national unity

QĐND – Sunday, May 02, 2010, 21:32 (GMT+7)

Water taken from the country’s northern, central and southern parts was poured into the Ben Hai river at a ceremony in central Quang Tri province on April 30 as a symbol of the desire and resolve to maintain territorial integrity and national unification of all Vietnamese people.

The Ben Hai river was selected as a temporary demarcation line separating the country into the North and the South under the Geneva Agreement on Vietnam signed in 1954.

The ceremony was part of the National Reunification Festival held by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Quang Tri provincial People’s Committee to mark the 35th anniversary of the liberation of southern Vietnam and national reunification, the 38th anniversary of Quang Tri’s liberation and the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

Addressing the festival, To Huy Rua, Politburo member and Secretary of the Party Central Committee and Head of its Commission for Information and Education, said the festival was an opportunity for all Party, army and people to pay tribute to fallen combatants, who had devoted their lives for national defence and construction, as well as a chance to uphold the nation’s tradition.

“Vietnam is one country, one nation. Rivers may run dry, mountains may crumble, but this truth will never change,” Rua quoted the late President Ho Chi Minh’s saying in his speech.

Gene study highlights cancer risk for “never smokers”

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2010 at 5:19 am

While lung cancer is commonly believed to be the preserve of people who smoke or who have smoked, 10 percent of all lung cancer patients worldwide are “never smokers”. AFP file

PARIS (AFP) – A trawl through the DNA codes of hundreds of individuals may help explain why some people who never smoke may be unusually at risk from lung cancer, doctors said on Monday.

Lung cancer is commonly believed to be the preserve of people who smoke or who have smoked.

Yet 10 percent of all lung cancer patients worldwide are “never smokers”, meaning they have not smoked a single cigarette or their lifetime’s tally is less than 100 cigarettes.

The proportion is even higher in Asia, where between 30 and 40 percent of lung cancer victims are “never smokers”. Nearly two-thirds of the worldwide tally among “never smokers” are women.

Work to assess the vulnerability of “never smokers” has been a somewhat neglected issue in cancer research, which has focussed on the far bigger number of smokers who develop lung tumours.

Gene sleuths led by Ping Yang from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, in Rochester, Minnesota, found two telltale genetic variants in Chromosome 13 in a study of 754 never smokers, with or without lung cancer.

Having these variants boosts the risk of lung cancer by nearly 60 percent, the study found.

The variants appear to suppress levels of a protein called GPC5, which plays a role in cell proliferation.

Further work is needed to confirm these findings and explore why never smokers develop cancer.

One theory is that someone with genetic vulnerability could develop lung cancer after a common, but as yet unidentified, trigger. Possible candidates include second-hand tobacco smoke, environmental pollutants, arsenic and the human papillomavirus.

The paper is published online by the journal The Lancet Oncology.

NA Chairman highlights successes in European tour

In Uncategorized on June 27, 2008 at 2:53 pm

National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong said the signing of cooperation agreements with the parliaments of Hungary , Romania , Bulgaria and France is an outstanding result of his freshly-concluded tour of those countries.

In discussions, leaders of those European parliaments all emphasised the need to beef up ties with the Vietnamese National Assembly to meet each side’s demands and wishes, Chairman Trong told the press on his return to Hanoi on June 27.

Chairman Trong said he reached consensus with his European counterparts on almost all important political issues, including the promotion of bilateral and multilateral cooperation between Vietnam and the countries.

France , Hungary , Romania and Bulgaria , which are EU members and Vietnam ’s traditional friends, all pledged to act as a bridge for Vietnam to penetrate into the vast European market, he said.

The NA Chairman said those countries highly valued Vietnam’s renewal achievements and prospects, and considered Vietnam an important partner, a big market and expressed eagerness to foster long-term cooperation with the country.

Chairman Trong noted that he reached agreements with his European counterparts on the promotion of their countries’ traditional cooperation to new heights in a strategic and mutual respect manner.

He said he received open support for Vietnam ’s more comprehensive relationship with the EU during the trip, especially Romania ’s recognition of Vietnam ’s market economy and Hungary ’s endorsement in almost all issues brought to the table.

The visits also helped the overseas Vietnamese communities in those countries, especially in France and Hungary, gain a thorough understanding of the situation in their homeland, particularly the performance of the legislative body, the NA Chairman said.

Chairman Trong also highlighted the company of a large number of businesses during his tour as an indication of local businesses’ growing interest in accelerating economic, trade, investment ties with those countries where they have not yet paid due attention to for a long time.

He said the promotion of the relationship with East European countries is a priority in the country’s foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, diversification and multilateralisation of international relations, and in being a friend and trustful partner of all countries in the international community.

He stressed the effectiveness of activities related to foreign affairs undertaken by the National Assembly, saying this is the channel that helps the country get access to different parties, both governing and non-governing ones, and hear different viewpoints.
