Have a nice Sunday!

Society

-- A 59-year-old woman was found dead with 37 stabbing wounds in an alleged robbery in her own home in Cau Ngang District, located in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh early Friday.

-- Representatives of enterprises in Ho Chi Minh City expressed concerns at a recent meeting over an increasing number of workers who have quit their jobs to receive lump-sum social insurance payments instead of obtaining them as pensions upon their retirement.

-- Doctors at the Obstetrics and Pediatrics Hospital in southern Soc Trang Province confirmed on Saturday evening that a 31-year-old woman and her newborn who she had delivered the same morning at a traffic light around 200m from the hospital she was being rushed to were safe and sound.

-- A downpour on Saturday evening inundated more than 40 streets across Ho Chi Minh City, including the heavily sunken and frequently flooded Nguyen Huu Canh Street in Binh Thanh District, where an anti-flood pump system had recently been installed.

Business

-- Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc held a dialog on Saturday with leaders of 14 major private corporations to address problems their groups have faced.

-- Experts warned at a recent seminar held by Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that potential buyers of new condo hotels, or 'condotels,' that have mushroomed along Vietnam's central coast, including beloved resort towns Nha Trang and Da Nang, go for reliable developers instead of buying commitments on large profits.

Lifestyle

-- Le Thanh Tinh, director of the UNESCO-recognized Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, nestled in the north-central province of Quang Binh, has revealed tours will be launched to the verdant expanses of bach xanh (Calocedrus macrolepis), a conifer native to northern Vietnam, that cover karst mountains apart from the current expeditions to Son Doong – the world’s largest caves – and neighboring cavernous wonders. 

Education

-- Nearly 300 scholarships worth a total of over VND1.8 billion (US$77,573) were presented to needy university students across the Mekong Delta on Saturday as part of a program jointly initiated by Tuoi Tre and Vietnam Television VTV9.
