Con người muôn mặt

Chào các bạn,

Chúng ta thường tự hào mình là người muôn mặt – khi thì hiền dịu như nữ tu, khi thì chằng chụa như côn đồ; khi thì chậm như rùa, khi thì nhanh như hỏa tiển; khi thì thành thật như kiến bò, khi thì giảo hoạt như lươn trượt… Đó là dấu hiệu của người nhiều năng khiếu làm việc, và mọi chúng ta đều tự hào về chính mình nếu mình có được nhiều mặt như thế.

HANOI: Vietnam’s ruling Communist Party chief Nguyen Phu Trong hailed booming economic development and containment of the COVID-19 pandemic as major achievements on Tuesday (Jan 26) as he presided over the opening of a key party congress in Hanoi.

Over nine days of meetings, mostly behind closed doors, delegates will pick a new leadership team, aiming to bolster Vietnam’s ongoing economic success – and the legitimacy of the party’s rule. Party congresses take place once every five years.

BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Tuesday it will conduct military exercises in the South China Sea this week, just days after Beijing bristled at a U.S. aircraft carrier group’s entry into the disputed waters.

A notice issued by the country’s Maritime Safety Administration prohibited entry into a portion of waters in the Gulf of Tonkin to the west of the Leizhou peninsula in southwestern China from Jan. 27 to Jan. 30, but it did not offer details on when the drills would take place or at what scale.

A U.S. carrier group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt entered the South China Sea on Saturday to promote “freedom of the seas,” the U.S. military said, days after Joe Biden began his term as president.

The contested waters have become another flashpoint in the increasingly testy bilateral relationship between Beijing and Washington. The U.S. military has steadily increased its activities there in recent years as China asserts its territorial claims in the area in conflict with neighbouring countries including Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei and Taiwan.

The announcement of the drills in the Gulf of Tonkin, just east of Vietnam, came as the Southeast Asian country opened a key Communist Party congress in Hanoi.

China on Monday complained that the United States frequently sends aircraft and vessels into the South China Sea, through which trillion dollars in trade flow every year, to “flex its muscles” and said such actions are not conducive to peace and stability in the region.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source said the agreement between the city Management Authority for Urban Railways (MAUR) and the contractors, Civil Engineering Construction Corporation No. 6 (Cienco 6) and Japan’s Sumitomo Corporation, requires them to use a certain quality of elastomeric laminated bearings pads, which are reinforced steel plates sandwiched between layers of rubber.
