  • 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?

    INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION 4.0 (October 14, 2018)

    (23:50:46 PM 12/10/2018)

    The first industrial revolution in the world took place in the 18th century. Then came the electricity, which was used in production lines and in large-scale production models, was the source of the second revolution. In the 1970s, when computers were born, this created a series of changes in the way people manipulate information, automate with robots, this is the third revolution. At present, we are engaged in the 4th Industrial Revolution, also known as Industry 4.0. This revolution creates the environment where computers, automation and people work together in new ways. Here, robots and machines will be connected to computer systems, which will use algorithms to control them without human intervention.
    Industry 4.0 will take place on 3 main areas including Biotechnology, Digital and Physics. In particular, the core elements will be: AI, Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data. In the field of biotechnology, Industry 4.0 focuses on making breakthroughs in agriculture, fisheries, medicine, food processing, environmental protection, renewable energy, chemistry and materials; in the same field with next-generation robots, 3D printers, self-driving cars, new materials and nanotechnology.
    Applying technological innovations will make the production process faster, less labor intensive, and more data collected. The quality of the product is ensured by control from the raw material stage to the formation and delivery to the consumer. In addition, people will not have to work directly in dangerous work environments, reduce mortality and morbidity in the workplace. However, many workers will lose their jobs as a result of being replaced by machinery. Enterprises also have difficulty in recruiting human resources to meet the requirements of the job. This can lead to inequalities, even breaking the labor market. In addition, CMCN 4.0 requires businesses to change. To survive and develop, they have to invest and upgrade technology, while improving the quality of human resources. Economic instability will lead to unpredictability of life, even politics. New technology will bring about change in power, security concerns, widening the gap between the rich and the poor. In addition, changes in how the Internet communicates poses a challenge to information security for both systems and individuals.
    However, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF) 2017, Vietnam is at a low level of innovation in technology and education. Specifically, Vietnam ranks 90th in terms of technology and innovation; Ranked 92/100 in Technology; ranked 77 out of 100 for Creativity; ranked 70th in Human Resources. In total, Vietnam only reached 4.9 on a 10-point scale on readiness for 4.0 CMCN. Obviously, we still have a lot to do!


    QUESTIONS TO DISCUSS:
    1. What is the importance of Industrial Revolution 4.0? What is different from the previous three industrial revolutions?
    2. Share with us the specific applications of Industrial Revolution 4.0 in economic and social life that you know ( and your comment ).
    3. But is Vietnam ready to board this 4.0 ship? Give some examples.
    4. How can we teach our children ready for Industrial Revolution 4.0?
