  • Topic of this Week: "Air Pollution (May 19, 2019)"

    Air pollution in Hanoi has recently reached alarming levels. The  PM2.5 particulate level recorded was seven times higher than the  permissible level set by the World Health Organization, which is harmful  to human health and can cause serious respiratory problems. The  declining air quality in Hanoi has been attributed to high traffic  volumes and industrial activity.
    In Hanoi, motorbikes and cars have become the preferred mode of transportation. Almost  everyone in the city owns a motorbike, while public transport is not  yet been able to meet the city’s demand. There is an average of 19,000  new personal vehicles registered per month in the capital, according to  Hanoi Traffic Police.
    Hanoi  is a rapidly growing city with more than 1,000 construction projects  presently underway, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources and  Environment. Nearly 150 out of 400 manufacturing facilities in the area  have also been reported as emitting large quantities of air pollution.
    Local residents have also blamed the felling of hundreds of trees in  the city in 2015 as a contributor to the decline of air quality.
    What do you think about this situation? We would love to hear your ideas, let’s meet up and talk at Advance this week ????
     

    Questions to ponder:
    1. What are the reasons and consequences of the air pollution to the city, residents, …?
    2. Which actions should be taken to tackle this problem?
    3. The local residents in Hanoi are really worried about the situation  recently; however, there is a professor saying that the alarming level  was reached in Hanoi only 1-2 days, so it’s not a big problem. Do you  agree with him?
    4. There were researches conducted to measure  the relation between the air pollution level and psychology. It’s found  that the higher pollution level leads to a higher crime rate. What’s  your opinion about this statement?

    CIVIL COURAGE (Sự can đảm của công chúng) (11 November, 2018)

    (23:07:13 PM 10/11/2018)

    Civil courage  is a type of courage, related closely to heroism, in which a person  acts bravely to intervene in a social situation. (Wikipedia)
     "Speak or ignore?" is a question that has been raised over the years in  our society. All of us has witnessed bad behaviors in community, in  studyplace, in workplace, in neighborhood, etc. When we were young,  those actions could simply are to see your classmates cheating in exams,  to see bullying after class. When we grow up, these actions we see  become more social, such as pocket picking on buses; stealing on  streets, and so on.

    Be honest!

    Have you ever seen these evils and pretended not to see?
    Do you feel guilty when you do not speak up?
    Why are we afraid to speak out?
    The courage of public - the civil courage - is the spirit that is  called in many countries to build a better society, containing a  message: speak is much harder than ignore, but otherwise, nobody gets  anything.
    But, practically, have you ever noticed daily heroes,  such as “street knights” on Saigon streets or high school girl Song Toan  voiced when her teacher was silent in her lectures? Have their lives differred after acting and speaking?
    Let's discuss, find the root causes and solutions for how to be good people but still keep yourself safe.
     

    Suggestions to discuss:
    1. What are reasons for silence of good people?
    2. What are social consequences caused by silence of good people?
    3. Is there a type of person who will always help?
    4. How do you teach your children on civil courage?/ How were you taught on civil courage?
    5. Let’s brainstorm on skills/ tips needed to protect ourselves while showing civil courage.
    "The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people but because of the silence of good people.”
    - Napoleon Bonaparte -
