Tuesday, November 21, 2017

There are many sports which are famous for their strength, endurance and fierce competition such as boxing or free material arts and so on. However, there are sports which is professional, gentle and interesting such as golf. 

Golf is a ancient sport lasting until now. It has developed and adopted to suit our era. Golf is a sport using clubs to hit balls into many holes from a far distance on different terrains. Many people believed golf originated from Scotland. However, historians still debate on real history of golf. 

Games using sticks and balls appeared in 2600 BC in central Egypt. In many ancient tombs, people found out some pictures and relives showing men with sticks and balls. Name of this sport is still unknown, however, people assume it has been brought  to Mediterranean by trading. 

Ancient Greek continued traditional game with balls and had many relives describing a sport similar to hokey.  

Researchers links golf with Paganica-an ancient Roman game, in which a wooden ball or feather ball was hit by wooden sticks. Roman balls was bigger than today golf balls, their diameter was about 15cm. Aim of Paganica was hitting the ball into a pointed goal, a rock or a tree. 

All historians agreed the word 'golf' diverted from ancient German word 'colf' or 'colve' which means a stick used in a game with ball named kolven.

People believe Scotch added holes on ground to this game and changed rules of it. They turned it into a personal game.
The game with stick and ball became popular in England in early 1500s and was considered a game of dominant class. 

In Europe, modern golf was first recorded on the second of March 1672 in east Lothian, Scotland.

What Is Solutions For Less Stifling Metropolis In HCMC?

Thursday, November 16, 2017

In terms of improving quality of life in Ho Chi Minh City, there are a lot of different ideas come up with by the young Vietnamese people.
Le Ngoc Hanh, a native of Binh Duong Province, approximately 30 kilometers from the city, expresses a hope to make this city less stuffy as well as improve quality of life. Let to pay attention in the honesty shares of this girl.

Over the past several years, she saw shuttle buses carrying staffers and workers between Ho Chi Minh City and industrial parks in Binh Duong during the morning rush hour.
Many young people choose to in the southern industrial hub though they have to commute to work in these places as Binh Duong and Dong Nai Province.
When Ho Chi Minh is facing on the increasingly influx of commuters, people here are similar to stranded in hours with a lot of vehicles as well as dust, polluted air,…In addition, hospitals are full with a huge number of patients while schools have been coped with a massive migration boom. With a explosion in number of students enrolled in risen in recent years, it had pushed a big problems for authorities in HCM.
 She shares that she is not a Ho Chi Minh resident, but she is impressed that this city has been overloaded.
Sometimes, she travels back and forth between Binh Duong and HCMC. Although she is excited to came there, she always want to escape the hustle and bustle of this big city and the obsessive images of large bundles of electricity wires overhead.
Along with the luxurious mansions in HCMC, it is a home of many domestic migrants with a “changing life” dream. Many farmers leave their hometown to HCMC and they lives in slums in slums in the overcrowded, expensive metropolis. Some of them can do business by collecting and selling scratches or becoming a small vendor,…while the others stay at home and take care of children. Their children don’t have a chance to go to school so they probably have the same future as their parents.
Compare to her hometown, Thu Dau Mot city, Binh Duong province, streets are wide and quite. There are many vacant seats in modern buses while a large number of apartments in high-rises is unoccupied. Moreover, the atmosphere is very fresh with a lot of green trees.
There are many places for entertainments such as parks, coffee shops, shopping malls, especially golf courses. After the success of the Vietnam golf team in sea game, people seem to pay more attention to this sport. As you can see, more and more golf clubs are built.
This city is home of nearly 10 million residents and it is in the progress of developing its substancial quality of life.
The administration must discuss master plans regarding HCMC problems have to face several years with the increase in the number of immigrant residents.
In her opinion, we should move a number of HCMC temporary and permanent city residents into Binh Duong and Dong Nai province. To make this come true,  the transportation need to be modern and flexible.
If we solve this problem, HCMC will relieve its burden. On the other hand, this would also help create the balance between the metropolis and neighboring provinces. It also reduces many problems arising in HCMC and many other nearby cities will become better places to live.
We can learn from lesson in Bangkok. Their city is so clean and beautiful. Most of residents lives in the nearby provinces or their hometown while they works in Bangkok. Could we make the same lessons for HCMC? This is a big question that need a lot of time to answer and a lot of effort from the authorities.
