Ancient Maps spark debate between China and Philippines over South China Sea islands

The Chinese government claims ninety percent of the South China Sea, including the Spratly Islands, an archipelago of 750 islands and reefs nearer the Philippines. However, a series of ancient maps have drawn this claim into question. The government of the Philippines says Beijing is overreaching in claiming territory so far south of the island of Hainan, which historical maps show to be southernmost China, far north of the Spratly archipelago.

Letter from Vietnam veteran to NGO Room to Read, about taking money from Monsanto

Attached file contains both English and Vietnamese translations. CS

Paul Cox is a fellow Vietnam vet, member of the San Francisco chapter of Veterans For Peace, a deeply concerned American who has been very active in seeking justice for American veterans and Vietnamese who have had their lives ravaged by the consequences of Agent Orange. The toxic chemical which has poisoned millions was made by Monsanto, Dow Chemical, and other American companies which are now trying to gain a foothold in Vietnam again. Monsanto has offered “agricultural scholarships” to Vietnamese students in a thinly disguised promotion of their GMO (genetically mutated) seeds in Vietnam. Paul’s letter, below, to the organization Room to Read, should be thoughtfully considered by all veterans and their families, every concerned citizen in America and Vietnam, and government leaders in both countries.

HCM CITY (VNS) — The media, especially digital, ignores copyright laws resulting in rampant plagiarism and demoralising journalists, a workshop held by the Viet Nam Journalists Association heard in HCM City yesterday.

“Copyright violation has become a worry as serious newspapers spend money and human resources to create … an article, picture or video clip, but a minute after it is posted on their website, it is copied and changed without fear,” Pham Quoc Toan, vice chairman of the association, said while opening the “Online Copyright” workshop.

My little friend – Rocky

My little friend, 11-year old dog, Rocky – named after the dog of Tottochan – a Japanese story written by Tetsuko. With a close childhood friend of mine, we booth named our dogs as such Rocky.  Rocky, however, is not any rocky-like as appeared is his name.

Rocky is strongly attached to only my family members. He is even a bit shy towards “stranger” guests visiting our house. He never hurts anyone. Rocky can only scare people enough by his German-shepherd looking and by his loud barking. He likes playing and sniffing around kids or babies rather than adults. So does he like puppies and smaller dogs. Đọc tiếp My little friend – Rocky

A Risky Year in Global Markets Is Coming

Like many economists, I think timing the market is a pretty hopeless task. Buy-and-hold has been a reliable strategy for increasing wealth over the past several decades, so why waste a bunch of effort trying to predict something that, if markets are truly efficient, ought to be unpredictable? But once in a while I get a little antsy. Now is one of those times. Đọc tiếp A Risky Year in Global Markets Is Coming

Sứ điệp ĐTC nhân Ngày Hòa bình thế giới 2015

Không còn nô lệ nữa, nhưng chỉ còn tình huynh đệ với nhau

1. Khởi đầu năm mới này, khoảnh khắc chúng ta đón nhận ân sủng của Thiên Chúa cho toàn thể nhân loại, tôi xin chân thành gửi lời chúc bình an đến mọi người nam nữ, cũng như cho mọi dân tộc và quốc gia trên thế giới, các nhà lãnh đạo quốc gia và chính phủ, và các chức sắc của tôn giáo, cùng với lời cầu xin để không còn những cuộc chiến tranh, xung đột và những nỗi đau đớn gây ra bởi con người, các dịch bệnh xưa cũng như nay và bởi những tàn phá do thiên tai. Tôi đặc biệt cầu xin để, khi đáp lại lời mời gọi cộng tác của chúng ta với Thiên Chúa và với mọi người thành tâm thiện chí để làm thăng tiến sự đồng tâm nhất trí, chúng ta biết kháng cự lại những cám dỗ xúi giục mình hành xử theo cách không xứng với tư cách làm người của chúng ta.

With the slaughter of at least 145 schoolchildren and teachers at a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Tuesday, the Taliban took its grisly war against the state to a more horrific place.

The massacre by the Pakistani Taliban, which has carried out increasingly deadly attacks in recent years, should prompt the country’s military and political leaders to reconsider their conflicted approach to the insurgency that is threatening the state’s survival.
