A postal worker at the Gia Lai Provincial Post Office has just been suspended after a clip showing him throwing mail packages out of a truck went viral. Director of Gia Lai Provincial Post Office, Le Ba Ngoc, said on Monday that they had suspended Nguyen The Binh, for his bad behaviour which had angered customers. "We have also reported the issue to the Vietnam Post Corporation," Ngoc said. "We pledge that we'll pay compensation for any damage caused to customers' mail. Earlier, a short video clip showing a post officer throwing mail from a truck at Gia Lai Post Office went viral. The clip which was recorded and posted by a customer at the office showed that many packages were thrown as far as 3-4 metres onto the cement floor by a worker on the truck. The packages were then picked up from the floor by a female postal worker who again threw them into a room. The clip has received lots of views and comments from the public who all criticised the postal workers for … [Read more...] about Postal worker suspended for throwing mail

I knew instantly that I would never see it. Three months after Christmas, I was still waiting for a postcard sent by my mum. As my eldest brother noted over the phone, there was a little bit of Christmas cash tucked inside for me. I knew instantly that I would never see it. Three months after Christmas, I was still waiting for a postcard sent by my mum. As my eldest brother noted over the phone, there was a little bit of Christmas cash tucked inside for me. Considering that the Vietnamese postal system has always opened every single letter and parcel I've ever received, I knew the money would be taken. Although I hoped I'd at least receive the card, minus the cash, it never came. Among the banes of living in Vietnam, the postal service is a regular annoyance. Mind you, I was amazed seven years ago to get a parcel from my mum with all the great candy she sent still intact despite a horrid sticky-tape repair job on the box. Even my motorbike guy can plug a hole better than that. … [Read more...] about Written from Vietnam: It’s in the mail!
Last month, the Hollywood Reporter published a roundtable interview with the heads of all the major film studios except for one. Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, wasn’t invited. That didn’t sit well with her husband, former New York Times reporter Bernie Weinraub. "I would fire your P.R. guy immediately," Weinraub wrote to Pascal in a Nov. 15 e-mail. "Or at least tell him you’re not going to deal with him anymore." Pascal forwarded his note to Sony’s head of human resources, George Rose. "He’s right," Rose replied. Six days later, Sony Pictures’ head of corporate communications, Charles Sipkins, was out of a job. He made a base salary of $600,000-a-year, according to leaked documents. The "fire your P.R. guy" e-mail is just one in an onslaught of documents released by hackers that offer a behind-the-scenes look into an industry hyper-focused on image. Pascal’s e-mails show another Sony executive calling actor Kevin … [Read more...] about ‘Fire your P.R. guy’ e-mail sends Sony exec out the door
Microsoft Corp's new Chief Executive Officer, Satya Nadella, finally unveiled Office for Apple Inc's iPad in a polished debut that set him apart from his energetic predecessor while signaling his plans to make mobile apps the top priority at the world's largest software company. At a news conference Thursday, executives demonstrated a new "touch-first" version of Office crafted for the iPad, available for download as a free app, though a subscription is needed to let users create or edit documents rather than just read them. Significantly, they did not demonstrate any software on Windows machines, telegraphing a departure from former Chief Executive Steve Ballmer's focus on the personal computer operating software and its own devices. "Their absence speaks volumes," said Daniel Ives, an analyst at FBR Capital Markets. "Nadella's a cloud-centric guy; he's going to focus on what's been successful, and where the future's going. Windows 8 thus far has been extremely underwhelming." … [Read more...] about Microsoft CEO signals new course with Office for iPad
Suspected Greek terrorists unleashed an unprecedented two-day wave of mail bomb attacks in Athens and abroad, with one package reaching the office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday. Greek militant groups are suspected of mounting the attacks targeting embassies in Athens and international organizations and foreign leaders abroad. If that is confirmed, it would mark a dramatic escalation for organizations that have never before attempted to strike targets abroad. The campaign used small devices that only caused one injury and minimal damage. But it highlights the difficulty of keeping bombs out of the international delivery system — also a target of Yemen-based militants armed with more powerful and potentially deadly explosives. Security at all embassies in Athens has been increased and authorities on Tuesday suspended all international mail deliveries from Greece for 48 hours for further checks. By Tuesday evening, at least 11 mail bombs had been detected in the … [Read more...] about Mail bomb campaign in Athens reaches Germany
