Thiennhien – Việt Nam hiện chỉ còn khoảng 30 cá thể hổ trong tự nhiên, chủ yếu phân bố ở khu vực biên giới miền trung và Tây Bắc. Tuy nhiên, các điều tra cho thấy, hoạt động buôn bán hổ trái phép tại Việt Nam đang phát triển với một số trại nuôi hổ, buôn bán hổ con và trao đổi hổ. Những trang trại này cũng bị nghi ngờ có hoạt động tuồn hổ có nguồn gốc từ nước ngoài.

Vietnam authorities have agreed to “look into” how the former Hmong royal family’s palace was handed over for use to a local culture department.

The decision came following angry demands by the family in the northern highlands’ Ha Giang Province.

Vuong Duy Bao, grandson of the last Hmong King, Vuong Chi Sinh (or Vuong Chi Thanh, 1886-1962), wrote a letter to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc last month asking for the century-old palace to be returned to the family.

Accessing the 45 largest companies in Vietnam – Transparency in Corporate Reporting 2018

Hanoi, 21 August 2018.

Vietnamese companies do not perform well in reporting on their anti-corruption programs. However, they outperform their foreign counterparts on the disclosure of their organizational structure and ownership., thanks to local existing regulations. FDI companies are far ahead their local counterparts in disclosing their anti-corruption programs. None of the companies operating outside of Vietnam discloses key financial information for countries where they operate.

These are some highlights of the key findings of the report “Transparency in Corporate Reporting: Assessing the 45 largest companies” (TRAC Vietnam 2018), released today by Towards Transparency (TT), the National Contact of Trasparency International (TI) in 3 dimensions: anti-corruption programs, organizational structure and financial information on a country-by-country basis.

The History of Hanoi’s Lost Tramway Network

When they first drew up plans for a citywide tramway network in 1894, it seemed as though the Hanoi authorities would follow Saigon’s example by opting for steam traction. Yet, by the time government approval was forthcoming in 1899, advances in technology made it possible to construct the entire system as a state-of-the-art, one-meter gauge electric tramway.

In 1900, the Compagnie des Tramways Électriques d’Hanoï et Extensions (CTEH) was to set up to build the first two tramway lines, which were jointly inaugurated in November 1901. Tiếp tục đọc “The History of Hanoi’s Lost Tramway Network”

A Throwback to Saigon’s Original Tramway Network

As ever-increasing levels of traffic congestion and air pollution turn many of Ho Chi Minh City’s road junctions into choking bottlenecks, many hopes are pinned on plans to construct a new urban railway network in the southern metropolis. Yet urban railways are hardly a new concept in this city, which was once home to one of Southeast Asia’s largest urban tramway networks.

Indochina’s first mechanized rail-guided transportation system was the one-meter gauge Saigon–Cho Lon “high road” steam tramway, operated by the Societe Generale des Tramways a Vapeur de Cochinchine (SGTVC) and opened to the public on December 27, 1881.

Updated at 7:03 p.m. ET

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, has pleaded guilty to eight counts in federal court in New York, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday evening.

They include five counts of tax evasion, one count of falsifying submissions to a bank and two counts involving unlawful campaign contributions.

Cohen’s conduct “reflects a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time,” said Robert Khuzami, deputy U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, outside the federal courthouse in Manhattan.

Microsoft uncovers more Russian hacking ahead of midterms

Microsoft has uncovered new Russian hacking efforts targeting U.S. political groups ahead of the midterm elections.

The company said Tuesday that a group tied to the Russian government created fake websites that appeared to spoof two American conservative organizations: the Hudson Institute and the International Republican Institute. Three other fake sites were designed to look as if they belonged to the U.S. Senate. Tiếp tục đọc “Microsoft uncovers more Russian hacking ahead of midterms”

Facebook says it just found 652 fake accounts out of Russia — and Iran

Facebook revealed on Tuesday that it has removed about 650 pages, groups, and accounts it determined are part of a coordinated disinformation campaign out of Russia — and Iran. Also on Tuesday, Twitter said it had suspended 284 Iran-linked accounts.

Menlo Park, California-based Facebook said that it has scrapped 652 fake accounts and pages that targeted Facebook users in the United States, United Kingdom, Latin America, and the Middle East. Facebook said that it undertook four separate investigations into aspects of the suspicious activity, three of which were related to Iran, and the fourth to Russian military intelligence services. The Iranian and Russian campaigns were unrelated, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a call with reporters on Tuesday evening.

Zuckerberg said Facebook banned the fake accounts and announced the decision was “because authenticity matters, and people need to be able to trust the connections that they make on Facebook.”

This is the second time in less than a month that Facebook has identified and removed suspicious activity on its platform, and it comes amid concern that Russia and others are trying to disrupt the 2018 midterm elections. Facebook has stepped up enforcement as a result of those concerns, but it’s not clear whether any of the activity Facebook revealed Tuesday was specifically targeted at swaying the November contest in the US.
