PAN conferred with Labour Hero title

QĐND – Tuesday, October 19, 2010, 22:15 (GMT+7)

PANO – The People’s Army Newspaper organised a solemn ceremony today to receive the title “Labour Hero” on the occasion of celebrating its 60th anniversary of the first publication.

The Chairman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Phu Trong, and General Phung Quang Thanh, Minister of National Defence, attended the ceremony.

The PAN was founded on 20th October 1950 in Thai Nguyen Province as the merger of two other newspapers.

The name of the newspaper was given by President Ho Chi Minh.

During the war against French colonialism, the newspaper published in both Dien Bien Phu and Hanoi.

The Vietnam War saw the maturity of the newspaper as its reporters were sent to the front and gathered updated information about the war.

“The newspaper’s staff  have tried their best to serve the information demands in wars and peace time,” said Major General Le Phuc Nguyen, PAN’s Editor-in-Chief, at the ceremony.

Having conferred the title to the newspaper at the ceremony, NA Chairman, Nguyen Phu Trong, said that the newspaper showed its strengths right from its establishment.

“The newspaper is truly a hero in both wartime and peacetime,” said the Chairman.

The Chairman also hoped that the PAN would promote its strengths to be a leading newspaper in Vietnam.

During its operation, the PAN has been presented with the Ho Chi Minh Medal, the Gold Star Medal and the title of Hero of the Armed Forces.

Minh gets set to defend Taiwan title

QĐND – Sunday, July 25, 2010, 21:7 (GMT+7)

Nguyen Tien Minh had no time to relax after winning his first title of the year at the Australia Grand Prix on Sunday, as he heads off to defend his crown at the Taiwan Grand Prix Gold which begins on August 3.

As the defending champion, Minh has been seeded No 1 and is prime candidate for the US$200,000 and 7,000 bonus points available.

The huge bonus means the Vietnamese world No 6 will be forced to face a number of powerful rivals, many of whom stand in the top 20 global rankings, such as Kuncoro Sony Dwi (No 7) and Simon Santoso (No 8) from Indonesia, Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand (No 9), Malaysian Wong Choong Hann (No 14) and Yu Hun from Hong Kong (No 18).

However the Vietnamese two-time Olympian is now confident following his Australian victory, saying that it was a major fillip before going to Taiwan.

“It was an important win. Apart from the $3,750 cash, I took 5,000 points to strengthen my 6th place in International Badminton Federation (IBF) ranking,” he said.

“I’m happy with my current form. It has helped me regain my confidence following my unexpected loss in the last 16 of the Asian championship in April”

It is also a strong motivation for him to improve his performances ahead of other international tournaments including the world championship later this month in Paris.

The August 23-29 event will lure all the world’s leading players as it is one of the most prestigious tournaments of the year. However, Minh, despite his high ranking, has never been successful in major competitions such as the Olympics, world and Asian games.

Here he will be accompanied by another Vietnamese, Nguyen Hoang Nam, in the men’s singles event.

In the women’s pool, Le Ngoc Nguyen Nhung, the first Vietnamese woman Olympic Games athlete in Beijing 2008, will be the sole representative in the singles.

In the doubles, Nhung will pair with Thai Thi Hong Gam in the women’s while two male pairs of Nam/Huynh Nguyen Khang and Duong Bao Duc/Pham Cao Hieu will feature in the men’s event. Gam and Duc will represent Viet Nam in the mixed doubles.

Despite registering for the championship, the other Vietnamese players, excepting Minh, are unlikely to progress.

The IBF will announce their final play schedule and draw on August 10. A lucky draw would allow a player to avoid some of the competition’s strongest players until deep into the tournament.

Living conditions in the area have also greatly improved, said Mr. Dinh Ba Loc, former deputy secretary of the Provincial Party Committee.

It will comprise a non-tariff zone, industrial zone, seaport service zone, and tourist and new urban areas operating under a special incentive mechanism to help Binh Dinh become a key economic region of central Vietnam.

Nhon Hoi Economic Zone will create jobs for thousands of people and change the province’s economic structure into one of industrialization and modernization.

The province will also focus on extending its export market and enhancing technology and advanced management skills to contribute to the local budget and improve people’s living standards.

Chairman of the Quy Nhon City People’s Committee, Thai Ngoc Bich, said the city is focusing on building Quy Nhon into a modern, civilized and green city.

The local government will carry out projects of Bui Thi Xuan, Phu Tai and Long My industrial parks, while roads linking the city to new urban areas will be built, he added.

In 1986, Quy Nhon Town was enlarged and recognized as a city of Binh Dinh Province. It received the title of “National Second-Class City” in 1998.

This year’s honor is seen as a step towards further development of the city in becoming a major economic area in the south-central region.

Wenger’s Arsenal fighters ready for title battle

In Vietnam Sports on January 22, 2010 at 10:43 am

LONDON, Jan 21, 2010 (AFP) – Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal’s title rivals that his side have the physical strength and will-power to win the Premier League.

Wenger’s team moved into first place in the table with a 4-2 win over Bolton at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday that underlined a new-found ability to flex their muscles.

While Arsenal have always had an impressive creative streak, they have often crumbled under pressure from opponents intent on kicking them into submission.

Judging by the way they stood up to Bolton’s aggressive gameplan twice in four days to overhaul previous leaders Chelsea on goals scored, that is no longer the case.

They refused to buckle after Bolton stormed into a two-goal lead and mixed brain with brawn to romp home thanks to goals from Tomas Rosicky, Cesc Fabregas, Thomas Vermaelen and Andrey Arshavin.

William Gallas undoubtedly went too far with a nasty stamp on Bolton midfielder Mark Davies that went unpunished in the build-up to Fabregas’s equaliser and the visitors were rightly infuriated by referee Alan Wiley’s decision to not even award a foul.

Wenger apologised for Gallas’s tackle but he admitted he was delighted with Arsenal’s resilience.

“We had two difficult games against a team with a new manager and our mental and physical strength was tested in both games,” he said.

“I think we can mix it. We are certainly much more physical. They marked us man for man and didn’t give us an inch of space. You are never better tested physically than when you face Bolton.

“I am sorry if the tackle was not good and I apologise for that. However, to complain that we went on to play, I think that is unfair. The players did not even know what was happening behind them.”

Wenger’s men will need that extra fortitude in the coming weeks.

After a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea left them 11 points behind in November, Arsenal have reeled off seven wins from nine matches to overhaul the Blues and Manchester United.

But now they face a defining period. In the space of 14 days, the Gunners travel to Aston Villa, then host United, make the short journey to Chelsea and then entertain Liverpool.

Wenger said: “The next four games are very important for us. It shows it can change quickly when you keep believing no matter what people say. This is a big boost to our belief. I am very proud of what they have achieved.

“We are in a fight where we are top of the league and have a good number of points but the real difference is made when you play the teams around you.

“Mathematically it has a big impact on all the teams. We believe we have a real chance and I am convinced we will have a real go.”

Bolton boss Owen Coyle, whose side had gone ahead through Gary Cahill and increased their lead thanks to Matthew Taylor’s penalty, was left to bemoan Wiley’s refusal to punish Gallas’s foul.

The Scot, beaten by the Gunners in his first two matches in charge, also aimed a dig at Arsenal’s players for refusing to stop play as Davies lay prone with severe ankle ligament damage.

“The second goal, there is no doubt was a big turning point in the game,” Coyle said. “It is clearly not even just a foul, I’d suggest it’s closer to a red card.

“The referee hasn’t seen the lad is lying prostrate on the ground and Arsenal, being full of fair play as we keep hearing, have played on and scored an equaliser so it’s hard to take.

“If you see it again, it was a terrible challenge. The lad was clearly in agony.

“I can accept it if William Gallas got a bit of the ball and carried through. That is the game we play, but he got absolutely none of it.

“The referee said he never saw it but I was 40 yards away and I saw it. He was five yards away. Maybe he had a bad angle. I’ve seen red cards given for less, that’s all I can say.”

The chairman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Phu Trong, who conferred the award at a ceremony in Hanoi January 20, called on VNPT to complete some difficult but important tasks entrusted to it by the Party, State, and people.

VNPT was spun off in 2006 from the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Corporation to become one of the country’s largest economic groups.

Last year it reported a turnover of VND78.6 trillion (US$4 billion), 30 percent higher than in 2008.
