Viet Nam News HÀ NỘI — There is a growing trend for green consumption in Việt Nam. Although this trend might be common in foreign countries, it has just recently emerged in the country, raising people’s awareness about environment issues. In Việt Nam, which is a rapidly growing country with life and work pressures, people yearn to be healthy. Nothing wrong with that. But what is wrong is that many people have let themselves become selfish, looking forward to being healthy without caring that what they do can be harmful to the environment and biodiversity. Meanwhile, in developed countries that have entered the post-industrial era, people always want their money not only to bring benefits but also happiness to producers and distributors as well as contributing to protecting nature, fairness and human rights.

SUBSCRIBE Nov. 12, 2018 / 1:42 PM GMT By Chuck Todd, Mark Murray and Carrie Dann WASHINGTON — In the wee hours of Election Night, the consensus was that Democrats had a good — though far from a great — showing. They netted the 23 seats needed to win the House, but they hadn’t hit a number much larger than that. It was pretty clear they were going to fall short in the marquee gubernatorial races in Florida and Georgia, even though they picked up seven governors’ mansions. And they looked destined to lose as many as four Senate seats to Republicans. Since then, however, the Democrats’ performance in the midterms has looked much, much better.
