MEDIA 08/02/2018 05:09 am ET The attorney for Stormy Daniels wants to go toe-to-toe with the Fox News host. By Ed Mazza Michael Avenatti, attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels, stepped in the middle of a Twitter feud between CNN’s Jim Acosta and Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night. And he’s calling again for Hannity to invite him for a chat on the air. Earlier this week, Acosta was confronted by an angry crowd of President Donald Trump’s supporters during a rally in Tampa. “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt,” Acosta tweeted. “We should not treat our fellow Americans this way.” Hannity, however, wasn’t having it. “The people of this country, they’re screaming at you for a reason,” Hannity said on his show. “They don’t like your unfair, abusively bias treatment of … [Read more...] about Michael Avenatti Gets Into It With Sean Hannity On Twitter: ‘Let’s Go Big Boy’

Viet Nam’s retail sector kicks into gear (19-12-2005) HCM CITY — With a predominantly young population, a growing business environment and stable politics, Viet Nam has become an attractive destination for supermarket chains and shopping centres. Independent global retail specialists gave the bright forecast for the retail sector in Viet Nam at a seminar on the topic last Wednesday in HCM City. The retail sector is growing by leaps and bounds, with some of the region’s, and the world’s largest retailers already setting up shops in Viet Nam, the seminar heard. Terry Ghani, director of Malaysia’s TGA Company said Viet Nam was proving to be a potentially lucrative market for retail trading activities. "Viet Nam has stable politics, with over half its population under 30 years of age. These kinds of conditions signal a great opportunity for developing and maintaining a profitable retail market in the country," said Ghani. With its close proximity to major … [Read more...] about Viet Nam’s retail sector kicks into gear
China's first space lab module Tiangong-1, or Heavenly Palace-1, blasted off at 9:16 p.m. Beijing Time (1316 GMT) Thursday in a northwest desert area as the nation envisions the coming of its space station era in about ten years. The unmanned module, carried by the Long March-2FT1 rocket, will test space docking with a spacecraft later this year, paving the way for China to operate a permanent space station around 2020 and making it the world's third country to do so. More than ten minutes after the blastoff, Commander-in-chief of China's manned space program Chang Wanquan announced the launch's success at the control center in Beijing. The success of the launch, however, is just a beginning, and the real challenge is space docking, said Yang Hong, chief designer of Tiangong module series. DOCKING TESTS Unlike previous Chinese space vehicles, the Tiangong-1 has a docking facility which allows it to be connected to multiple space modules in order to assemble an experimental station in … [Read more...] about China sends Heavenly Palace into orbit as nation ambitious for permanent station
After years of delay, authorities in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are determined that they will have their first metro systems commissioned by 2018 in a bid to clear streets increasingly clogged with cars and motorbikes. However, they face a much tougher task in convincing millions of motorbike and car owners to switch to the trains because old habits die hard, and, some experts say, entrenched attitudes die even harder. "Successful public transit projects need to combine a policy framework with good facilities that encourages people not to use cars and encourages them to use public transport," Jonathan Pincus, a HCMC-based economist with the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program, told Vietweek. But Vietnam has not been able to do this so far, and such failure could cast a dark shadow over the metro systems, experts say. They say that the country looks set to experience a strong car culture as a large number of nouveau riches choose to flaunt their wealth with luxury cars like … [Read more...] about Vietnam metro systems get set, but will the public go?
