A few years ago, Debby Johnson, an attorney from a large firm based in Kansas City, contacted me about a relatively simple matter. I was to travel to offices in Sacramento from my San Francisco-area labs, copy a computer’s disk drive, and locate emails sent by the plaintiff to his brothers and sisters, of which he had nine. The case was a product liability lawsuit for an amount in the tens of millions of dollars. The plaintiff claimed that his health had been damaged by an international firm’s defective product, although he was symptom-free at the moment. What was the product? Let’s say it was coffee.
Popular Sea food. Apart from Ca Na’s most famous specialties, such as salt and Nhi fish sauce, tourists are offered a great chance to taste delicious seafood, say, shrimp, crab, shellfish, etc. There are a number of beautiful tiny things here to buy for gifts, among which the most popular one preferred by tourists is the sea coral.
Sadly the need for orphanages in Vietnam has not changed. During our current tour vietnam we have been visiting ones that serve children with disabilities through out the country. While the rest of Vietnam is moving forward, people with disabilities have not yet begun to reap the benefits of economic growth. Sadly many children who live in orphanages actually have families but have been abandoned. Many families of children with disbilities just do not have the resources, education and support to keep them at home. Little or no social programming exists.
We have all seen the heartbreaking news stories about the flooding in and around Bangkok this year. Thankfully, most of our teachers were not affected and have continued to teach. Many have jumped in to help where they can, and we are pleased to profile one of them.
The war lasted 11 years and at the end the US was more exhausted than its opponents. Thousands of US service men died in a pointless conflict. The communists led by tour vietnam played their cards adroitly and portrayed the US as an imperialist power and atrocities on the ground like the Mai Lai massacre and carpet bombing of entire villages did not help the US cause.
Three options ride an off road loop through pine forests and local vegetable farms on exciting hard pack clay tracks or ride on-road in the shadow of Langbian Mountain, stopping en route to visit flower and organic farms. Alternatively spend the day relaxing in the colonial surrounds of the Palace Hotel. Overnight at hotel.
How can you help? The people of Vietnam have been through a lot in the past few decades – two brutal wars against major powers, and crushing poverty into the 90s. The future is bright, but there are still a lot of people that need help. Many people I talked to before I left the U.S. last year seemed to think I would be living on a rice paddy and commuting to work by ox. I’ve made a point of telling folks back home about the Rolls-Royces and BMWs I see on a daily basis; the skyscrapers sprouting up all over the city; that I drive to modern, well-equipped language centers on a motorbike, on paved roads.While this is all well and good, there are also orphans, severely disabled people, homeless, and diseased, for which there is little safety net.
So study as hard as you can -stress-out a little- and then let it all go. In nursing school we become really great at jumping through the hoops, so although some of you may feel ripped-off at having to study more and do better than my class did – just jump through the hoop and reach your end goal.
