Viet Nam News NEW YORK — The prosecution has admitted to a new embarrassing error in the Harvey Weinstein case, saying a police detective told one of the disgraced Hollywood producer’s accusers to delete from her phone anything she wanted to keep private. In a letter to Weinstein’s attorney dated on Tuesday, prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon acknowledged that the lead detective had made the recommendation to one of two women accusing Weinstein in the case, in which he faces charges of rape and a forced oral sex act. "My office had asked Complainant 2 to produce any and all cell phones that she might have used during the time she interacted with the defendant," the letter said. But the detective told her she "should delete anything she did not want anyone to see before providing the phones to our office." Illuzi-Orbon says the woman ultimately handed over the phones "without any deletions," but the admission further weakens the prosecution’s case. "This … [Read more...] about Prosecution admits to new error in Weinstein case
Bamboo Bike Cycling in Mekong Delta (CSR event of BNP Paribas Ho Chi Minh City Branch in 2017) Having been in Vietnam since 1989, what do you think about the development of the banking industry in the country? Tremendous efforts have been made by the State Bank of Vietnam over the past few years to improve the quality of the balance sheets of many commercial banks. The Vietnamese banking industry has therefore become healthier and is a key player in supporting Vietnam’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth. Credit growth is something we carefully look at and BNP Paribas Vietnam’s credit growth mirrored Vietnam’s significant 18 percent Credit Growth in 2017. The Vietnamese banking industry is very well positioned to implement and follow Basel II requirements in the next few years. We are also already seeing mergers in Vietnam and this trend should intensify in the future, leading to an increased consolidation of the market.

Viet Nam News by Robert Bicknell Can changing clubs make a difference in your game as a professional? We read all the time that a well-known Tour pro decided to switch brands, mostly due to a ridiculous amount of money being waved in his/her face. What people do not realize is that many of these pros are not entirely stupid and usually demand that the company make a virtual copy of their old tried and true club, with minimal cosmetic or technical changes, and just a new brand stamped on it. What’s old is new… sort of. But occasionally, the manufacturer might demand the player accept the designs they currently have, modified a bit to meet the player’s requirements. This can be something as simple as weighting, or grinding the sole a bit differently than what is actually on the market. But, almost without exception, once the player has a brand new set of clubs in his brand new bag, his game usually goes completely to hell, at least for a short while.
