Chào các bạn,
Hôm nay mình giới thiệu đến các bạn bộ môn “Hát Bội/Tuồng Miền Bắc”, tiếp theo “Hát Ru Con Miền Bắc“.
Hát Bội/Hát Bộ/Tuồng đều có mặt trên 3 miền Nam, Trung, Bắc của Việt Nam chúng ta. Theo truyền thuyết dân gian từ xa xưa thì Hát Bội (Tuồng) ra đời ở Bình Định trên cơ sở ông Đào Duy Từ, người Thanh Hóa, sau khi bị vua Lê không cho đi thi và cấm diễn nghệ thuật sân khấu, đã trốn vào Nam sống ở huyện Hoài Nhơn và dạy cho người dân ở đây diễn nghệ thuật múa hát theo kiểu Hát Bội. Dĩ nhiên để trở thành môn nghệ thuật hoàn chỉnh thì phải trải qua nhiều thế kỷ hoàn thiện của rất nhiều thế hệ nghệ sĩ từ thời Đào Duy Từ đến thời kỳ Đào Tấn.

Mark Ashwill is an American educator, PhD and former director of the International Institute for Education (IIE) until he and his wife Hang in 2009 created Capstone Vietnam, an educational consulting service based in Hanoi. Mark spoke at a recent Vietnam-US Higher Education Forum in Hanoi, and was surprised to find that almost no one in the audience of 150 attendees knew that a much heralded scholarship program, the Vietnam Education Foundation (VEF) — assumed to be sponsored by the U.S. government — is actually funded by the Vietnamese government as a debt swap arrangement. The Vietnamese government agreed, as part of the normalization process 20 years ago, to pay back $146 million in agricultural and other loans that the U.S. had provided to the defeated Saigon government. With debt and the Greek crisis on everyone’s mind, details of the Vietnamese debt payback to the U.S. in the 2010 article below by Mark Ashwill may surprise many Americans as well as Vietnamese.
VEF: From Vietnam With Money ($)
In April 1997, during a three-day visit to Vietnam, then Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin announced that the Vietnamese government had agreed to repay the $146 million wartime debt of the former South Vietnam. Four years earlier, Vietnam agreed in principle to assume the debt from its former enemy as part of a larger agreement that cleared the way for renewed international borrowing by Hanoi, previously blocked by Washington.

Rapporteur’s Report, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard Kennedy School
June 2015 Authors: Joern Huenteler, Former Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, Henry Lee, Director, Environment and Natural Resources Program
Belfercenter – The promise, prospects, and public policy trade-offs related to second-generation biofuels in road transport were addressed in an executive session convened at The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, on April 7 and 8, 2015. The workshop brought together twenty-eight of the world’s leading experts from the fields of policy, science, and business for an intensive two-day session (see the Appendix for a list of the participants). The discussions were off-the-record, with each participant present in his or her own capacity, rather than representing his or her organization. This report is a summary of the main points and issues raised over the two days. It has been reviewed by all the participants. The summary is intended to reflect the breadth of the discussion, rather than to suggest any form of overall consensus among the participants.
