COP24 special report on health and climate change
3-14 December 2018, Katowice, Poland – In its latest report, WHO highlights health as the biggest issue to be prioritized during COP-24 and provides key recommendations to the negotiators on how to maximize the health benefits of tackling climate change and avoid the worse health impacts of this global challenge. Although there has been hugely positive progress in tackling health and climate change issues, there is a still a long way to go. Millions of people are still exposed to air pollution globally, resulting in 7 million premature deaths every year; 3 billion people still lack access to clean and reliable energy; and nearly a quarter of all deaths worldwide result from people having to live or work in unhealthy environments. Unless significant changes are made and stronger action taken, we are risk of failing to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement and the SDGs.

The Agreement between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada is a signed but not ratified free trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. It is referred to differently by each signatory: in the United States, it is called the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA); in Canada, it is called the Canada–United States–Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) in English and the Accord Canada–États-Unis–Mexique (ACEUM) in French; and in Mexico, it is called the Tratado entre México, Estados Unidos y Canadá (T-MEC).

Sử thi Raglai – Nhìn từ phương diện chức năng thể loại
Nguyễn Thanh Tùng*
Trong nền văn hóa lâu đời của người Raglai, sử thi (Akhát Jucàr), xét về phương diện chức năng thể loại, là những di sản có giá trị lớn về nhiều mặt.
Trong phạm vi của bài viết này, ngoài việc điểm lược những nét khái quát về tộc người và văn hóa tộc người Raglai; về thể loại sự thi (Akhát Jucàr) trong nền văn học dân gian Raglai, chúng tôi tập trung nghiên cứu, thẩm nhận bước đầu một số chức năng của sử thi trong văn hóa tộc người Raglai, xét từ phương diện chức năng thể loại:

– Đảm nhận vai trò đích thực của những áng văn chương truyền miệng .
