VTV.vn – Theo các xét nghiệm của đơn vị chuyên môn, hàm lượng asen trong nước sinh hoạt tại khu đô thị Tân Tây Đô có thời điểm cao gấp 3 lần tiêu chuẩn cho phép của Bộ Y tế.

Hàng nghìn hộ dân tại khu đô thị Tân Tây Đô, huyện Đan Phượng, TP Hà Nội đã phải sử dụng nguồn nước bị nhiễm asen hay còn gọi là thạch tín. Điều đáng nói là tình trạng này đã diễn ra suốt từ năm 2014 đến nay mà vẫn chưa có giải pháp khắc phục.

Nhà máy nước sạch cung cấp cho khoảng 2.000 hộ dân KĐT Tân Tây Đô được đặt ngay cạnh một con kênh đen ngòm, bẩn thỉu và ô nhiễm. Theo kết quả xét nghiệm mẫu nước tại nhà máy nước sạch Tân Tây Đô do Trung tâm y tế dự phòng Hà Nội thực hiện, trong suốt các năm từ 2014 đến nay, hàm lượng asen trong nước đa phần đều vượt mức tiêu chuẩn an toàn cho phép. Cá biệt trong lần xét nghiệm gần đây nhất, hàm lượng asen vẫn cao gấp 3 lần quy chuẩn an toàn của Bộ Y tế.

Theo Viện Sức khỏe nghề nghiệp và môi trường, Bộ Y tế, nếu mỗi ngày cơ thể hấp thụ một lượng nhỏ asen hay thạch tín, lâu dần có thể xuất hiện nhiều bệnh lý như biến đổi sắc tố da, sừng hóa, ung thư da và ung thư một số cơ quan nội tạng, các bệnh về hô hấp, phổi…Tác hại của asen đối với phụ nữ và trẻ em là lớn nhất.

Thang Long Citadel bunker opened to the public

Last update 14:38 | 19/12/2017

The underground military operation bunker where the Vietnamese government worked during the American War in Thang Long Imperial Citadel has been opened to visitors for the first time.

The Thang Long Heritage Conservation Centre opened the bunker and exhibition about the general command headquarters on the occasion of 45th anniversary of victorious air defence of Hanoi during the American bombing raids of Christmas 1972.

The bunker was built in early 1965 by military engineers. They demolished the two-storey command building to disguise and cover the bunker. The bunker has three rooms, covering 64 square metres. The roof is 1.5 metres higher than the ground and has three layers to protect officers against falling bombs and rockets. It was supposed to be a shelter even against nuclear or chemical weapons.

Decisions issued during the 1972 air battle and supply routes for the south were from the site. The first sirens warning of US air force attacks were approved in the bunker.

After 1975, the bunker was largely abandoned until it was renovated in 2012.

Some photos of the bunker:

Fishing with long rackets on Hanoi’s Tich River

Last update 15:37 | 15/11/2017

When the water level lowers in Tich River, the residents in Hanoi’s outlying district of Thach That will come out and submerge in the river with long rackets to catch the fish.

Catching fish with long rackets is considered a traditional culture of the people living by the river.

The locals often gather to catch fish in September or October in the lunar calendar.

During this time, the water level of the Tich River lowers greatly while fish in other lakes and rivers must go this way to reach the sea.

The fishermen often go in groups, cheering and attracting viewers to the river banks. The racket is made from bamboo. The handle is four metres long and the net can be 80cm wide. Continue reading “Fishing with long rackets on Hanoi’s Tich River”
