Hundreds of residents who are struggling to recover from a deadly fire at an apartment building in Ho Chi Minh City have filed a complaint to the government calling for its investor to be be punished. A petition with nearly 500 signatures from the residents of Carina Plaza was sent to Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on Sunday regarding poor fire safety in the building and the fact that its investor has failed to step up to take responsibility. The fire sent residents fleeing in a chaotic stampede after midnight on Friday, killing at least 13 people and injuring around 50 others. An initial investigation has exposed that the fire alarms did not go off and the automatic sprinklers in the building failed to deploy.

“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” Trump said in his first State of the Union address, delivered in the chamber of the House of Representatives on January 30 (local time). Trump said he was “extending an open hand” for an immigration deal and that he would provide Dreamers - people brought illegally to the country as children - a pathway to citizenship over ten to 12 years in exchange for funding for a border wall with Mexico and restrictions on legal immigration. Trump took credit for US economic gains including a soaring stock market and a low jobless rate. He boasted about the economic growth he believes will result from tax cuts Republicans pushed through Congress late last year. Trump said he would like a compromise over a plan to rebuild aging roads, bridges and other infrastructure. He said he wanted legislation to … [Read more...] about Trump urges bipartisan cooperation in State of the Union address

In praise of the extraordinary Stephane Tran NgocBradley Winterton On Wednesday I attended one of the finest concerts I have ever been to in thirty years of concert-going. It was in some ways a strange event because it got better and better as it progressed. Its main feature was that the soloist was an artist of outstanding talent, the Paris-born violinist Stephane Tran Ngoc. His playing had all the virtues, plus more besides. He was quietly sensitive, and no bravura showman. Yet at other times he was the epitome of dazzling technical brilliance, leading me not infrequently to gasp in amazement. He also had a concentration and imaginative sympathy that illuminated a work that might have been thought to be beyond illumination, displayed in a most extraordinary way in the item that occupied the second half of the evening in the Opera House in downtown HCMC. This item was Peteris Vasks’s Concerto for violin and string orchestra “Distant Light”. This might at first sight … [Read more...] about In praise of the extraordinary Stephane Tran Ngoc
