Ông K’Nhũng (xã Phước Lộc, huyện Đạ Huoai, Lâm Đồng) bên vườn điều bị cháy lá toàn bộ.

Thay vì già trẻ kéo nhau ra vườn thu hoạch điều, thu về hàng trăm triệu đồng như mọi năm, người trồng điều ở 3 huyện phía Nam tỉnh Lâm Đồng là Đạ Huoai, Đạ Terh và Cát Tiên… chỉ biết ở nhà đi vào đi ra, hoặc vào rừng bứt mây… kiếm sống. Chưa bao giờ, làng trên xóm dưới đều cùng chung nỗi buồn điều không kết trái, cháy lá hàng loạt như vậy.

Urban Food Street – Chỉ cần nhìn là muốn ăn

Tại một thị trấn nhỏ ở Queensland có một con đường đặc biệt , sở dĩ đặc biệt là bởi vì đây là con đường “ăn được”.

Đúng thế, chính là “ăn được”!

Trên con đường này hai bên đường khắp nơi đều có trồng các loại rau củ quả hữu cơ không ô nhiễm, tươi ngon và đầy dinh dưỡng. Chỉ cần cắn một miếng thôi bạn sẽ cảm nhận được cảm giác ngọt ngào mà không có bất cứ loại trái cây đắt tiền nào sánh bằng.


Bạn có thể hái một quả quýt nếu khát.

Vietnam’s architectural gems are disappearing

1532 42 LINKEDIN 5 COMMENTMORE

HO CHI MINH CITY   Once an architectural gem emblematic of Vietnam’s era as a French colony, the Tax Trade Center with its iconic Art Deco facade is now mostly rubble.

Despite a petition drive spearheaded by a growing historic preservation movement, the building was demolished in recent months. In its place, developers plan a 43-story complex with a connection to the first subway line in the city.

The Tax Center, built in 1924, is one of many historic buildings in the last 20 years that have been razed or severely altered, according to a joint French-Vietnamese government research center.

Preservationists say developers and government officials are intent on making this city modern and care little for the vestiges of its colonial past. But destroying so many historic buildings, they warn, makes the city less livable and less attractive to tourists — which could undercut economic growth the government hopes to foster.

A bauxite megaproject in Vietnam’s Central Highlands has been making losses totaling VND3,696 billion (US$165 million) in the last three years, but the developer is unconcerned, believing that it will start generating profits in 2017.

Vietnam currently has two major bauxite mining projects, Nhan Co in Dak Nong Province and Tan Rai in Lam Dong Province, both developed by Vinacomin, the country’s state-run coal and minerals giant.

Bauxite, an aluminum ore, is the world’s main source of aluminum.

Nguyen Van Bien, Vinacomin’s deputy general director, confirmed to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the Tan Rai bauxite plant has been operating at a loss. Tiếp tục đọc “Developer remains upbeat as Vietnam’s bauxite project logs $165mn loss”

OP-ED: Attitude is the underlying problem of Vietnam’s tourist industry

Editor’s note: A reader simply calling herself Thuy argues that among the endless list of problems and challenges facing Vietnamese tourism, the underlying problem is attitude. The opinions here are solely hers.

It’s very good that you are bringing attention to the problems that Vietnam continues to face even after decades of the government discussing tourism development.

I’ve worked in the tourist/service/hospitality sector in the U.S. and Vietnam for more than 20 years so it is very frustrating to see the country’s lack of effort and interest in facilitating foreign visitors and pursuing cost-effective marketing opportunities.
