The Ministry of Education and Training has made teaching prevention of sexual abuse mandatory in elementary schools across the country starting this year, with illustrated manuals added to the list of basic teaching equipment for first grade. The manuals must include two illustrations on primary prevention from sexual abuse, the circular stated.

By Robert Bicknell Comedian Billy Crystal joined the cast of Saturday Night Live the 1984-85 season. His most famous recurring sketch was his parody of Fernando Lamas, a smarmy talk-show host whose catch phrase was “It is better to look better than to feel good and, darling, you look Mahvelous!” became a media sensation So, here’s an interesting question… Is it better to look good, or to play good? (Grammar critics stop screaming, I know “play good” is wrong, but it’s the only way it fits the set up correctly. Call it, artistic licence and shaddap). The reason behind this is that I see far too many people on the driving ranges trying to swing like Tour pros and failing miserably. The painstakingly compare their swings to what they see on YouTube and keep making changes, despite not having the physical characteristics or strengths of the player in the video. So the question is, do you want to look like you can play golf, or do you want to … [Read more...] about Look good, or play good?
Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri celebrates after scoring against Manchester United at Anfield. (Photo: AFP/Paul Ellis) Everyone is looking for the same thing, too: Players who can turn contenders into champions and save doomed teams from sinking without trace. No pressure, then. Finding them in the crowded and chaotic January market is quite another thing, too, because by this stage of the season, you are probably getting someone another club is happy to let go. That is why a good recruitment team is gold dust for every Premier League club. Of course, it doesn't take much for scouting to go wrong. Here's my review of the good, the bad and the ugly. THE BEST BUYS XI Possibly the most spectacular examples of scouting and signing are Leicester's purchases of N'Golo Kante - rated No 2 central midfielder in the FC 100 - for only £5.5 million and Riyad Mahrez for just £400,000. The pair were later sold to Chelsea and Manchester City, respectively, for a combined total of £90m. … [Read more...] about Premier League clubs” good, bad and ugly transfers of 2018 and what to expect in January

VietNamNet Bridge - The number of universities in Vietnam has increased rapidly, but the training quality has not, experts say. The number of university students has increased rapidly Duong Van Sau, Tourism Culture Dean of the Hanoi Culture University, said that Vietnam has many training establishments, but the training quality cannot satisfy society’s requirements. “Too many universities have been launched into the market. Universities exist in every province. However, the training quality is problematic, thus creating ‘rubbish’ to society,” he said. Sau went on to comment that Vietnam has shifted from elite university education to universal large-scale education, which generates ‘second-rate goods’ or ‘counterfeit goods’.
