On Tuesday, the Mayo clinic is unveiled a new five billion dollar campus. But officials say it won't be your average hospital. Residents sound off on years of health concerns after an EPA report found violations at a south Minneapolis metal foundry. The cold weather is setting in. But for those with chronic pain, it can be more than just a nuisance. But what's the connection? A doctor joined us to explain. Removing a diseased Ash tree isn't cheap. A new grant is aiming to cover the cost. But not everyone impacted will get relief. A local organization is collecting stories of southeast Asian immigrants who fled after the fall of Saigon to share the experiences of the diaspora. We heard more from them.
If you could interview an elder in your life, what would you want to know about them? Would you ask about their greatest hardships first – or the moments that brought them joy? A Minneapolis-based non-profit is releasing a book of stories collected by 16 authors from their older relatives who fled Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia after the fall of Saigon in 1975. The book is called Knowing Our Joy. One of the people who brought it into the world is Jessica Eckerstorfer, co-director of the Southeast Asian Diaspora Project, or SEAD Project. She joined MPR News host Cathy Wurzer along with Cody Kour, one of the authors of the new anthology.

If you haven't heard that installment, we encourage you to do so after listening to this episode. Operation Babylift was directed by U.S. President Gerald R. Ford in the final days of South Vietnam shortly before the country fell in 1975. Pan American World Airways sent two Boeing 747 jumbo jets, one charted by Holt International and the other by American businessman Robert Macauley, to assist in the evacuation. On April 24, 2022, the Pan Am Museum partnered with Holt International and hosted a 47th anniversary celebration. In attendance were two dozen babies, now adults, and their families. They were re-united with three Pan Am flight attendants on their flights and Al Topping. Bringing these groups together for this special humanities program demonstrated the massive positive impact this one historical event had on generations of people to this day. Watch the video from this incredible event in the episode description.In future episodes we plan on exploring the stories of the children, now adults, of Operation Babylift and the Pan Am flight attendants that cared for them on those historic flights.Become a Holt sponsor!

Dieu Hao Do will seine zerstrittene Familie wieder zusammenbringen und hofft auf Versöhnung. Aber seine Familie ist nach der Flucht aus China und 1975 nach der Flucht aus Vietnam auf drei Kontinenten zerstreut. Es sind die Geschwister seiner Mutter, die schon seit Jahrzehnten nicht mehr miteinander gesprochen haben. Dieu Hao Do besucht sie in Los Angeles, in Hong Kong und Saigon, spricht mit Ihnen. Aber der Groll der Geschwister aufeinander sitzt tief.Der Dokumentarfilm springt manchmal unvermittelt zwischen den Kontinenten und Städten, führt uns aber immer näher an die Familienmitglieder heran, zeigt schonungslos Neid, Minderwertigkeitsgefühle, Erbstreitigkeiten und einen Mangel an Empathie. Im Podcast direkt nach dem Film diskutiere ich mit Bettina über die Rolle, die der Kommunismus und die Flucht beim Zerbrechen der Familie gespielt hat, über die Unterschiede zwischen den Generationen und über die Entwicklung, die der Regisseur während der Dreharbeiten durchmacht. Wir sind uns einig: eine starke Dokumentation, die keinen kalt lässt.HAO ARE YOU wurde vom ZDF koproduziert und wird im Rahmen des Kleinen Fernsehspiels im ZDF gezeigt.

Tinker Talks celebrates veterans this year with a podcast honoring the service of Pete Piazza. Piazza served three tours in Vietnam. During his second tour, then-Staff Sgt. Piazza was NCO in Charge of the 3rd Security Police Squadron's “C” Flight Security Resupply Team at Bien Hoa Air Base, near Saigon. North Vietnamese forces launched a rocket and ground attack Jan. 31, 1968, as part of the Tet Offensive. Piazza drove through machine gun and sniper fire to resupply the defenders who were quickly running out of ammunition. After the officer-in-charge was killed, Piazza assumed command and rallied with his troops in a show of stamina and force while they counter-attacked during an eight-hour assault. The position was held and in the end numbers of lives and hundreds of millions of dollars in aircraft and supplies were spared. He received the Silver Star, the third highest combat medal given to an Armed Forces member for his heroinism. Piazza is no stranger to Tinker Air Force Base. He served here in the late 80s prior to retiring. In 2014 a gate was named in his honor. Piazza still gives to our Airmen, showing up to speak for the Airmen Leadership School classes as well as coming out to spend time with our active duty members. This is a longer podcast and we could have gone for hours. Have a listen and give us your feedback in honor of this great hero.
Nghe trọn nội dung sách nói Vô Gia Đình trên ứng dụng Voiz FM: https://voiz.vn/play/2524 Truyện VÔ GIA ĐÌNH này dịch ở quyển SANS FAMILLE, một tiểu thuyết hay nhất trong các tác phẩm của Hector Malot, một danh văn nước Pháp. Tiểu thuyết Sans Famille xuất bản lần đầu tiên về năm 1878, được công chúng rất hoan-nghênh và được Viện Hàn-Lâm Pháp khen-thưởng, cho vào hạng sách hữu ích. Vì có một giá trị về văn-chương cũng như về phương diện giáo-dục, nên sách đó đã được lưu hành trong các nam-nữ học-đường. Không những thế, các nước Anh, Đức, Nhật, Trung-Hoa, vân vân, cũng nhận thấy ích lợi của cuốn sách đó nên đã phiên dịch ra trên mười thứ tiếng và phát hành khắp nơi. [...] Nay, để cho truyện được sát với nguyên tác chữ Pháp, về tư tưởng cũng như về văn từ, theo ý muốn của một số bạn yêu văn, tôi không quản tài trí thiển sơ, cố gắng phiên dịch, may ra có ích phần nào trong học văn của các bạn thanh niên. "Vô gia đình" là truyện một đứa bé bị bỏ đường, được một thôn phụ nuôi nấng như con. Không may, chồng thôn phụ đó làm thợ bị một tai nạn lao động thành tàn tật, buộc lòng phải bán em cho một ông lão diễn trò rong. Cuộc phân ly đau đớn. Rồi đến cuộc đời lang thang, trôi dạt của em trên đất Pháp và đất Anh. Những biến cố liên tiếp xảy ra, nhưng nhờ trí thông minh, lòng quả cảm, em đã phấn đấu và đã vượt mọi gian nan. Sau em tìm được mẹ cùng em trai và không quên trả ơn những người đã cứu giúp em trong những ngày gian khổ. "Vô gia đình" nêu cho ta một tấm gương ưu cần, nhẫn nại, một tinh thần thanh cao và tự lập, một chí phấn đấu không sờn, nhất là lòng trung hậu tuyệt vời. Ngoài giá trị về đạo đức, câu truyện lại ly-kỳ và vô cùng cảm động nên không những được giới học sinh ưa chuộng mà mọi người ai đã đọc một vài trang đầu không thể bỏ qua không xem hết. Trong lúc phong trào "chấn hưng đạo đức" đang sôi nổi trên Thế giới Tự do, tôi mong rằng bản dịch "Vô gia đình" này sẽ giúp một phần mọn vào công cuộc "vãn hồi chính đạo" lớn lao đó.

Alice McDermott has written one of THE great novels of 2023. Absolution is so many things…a portrait of diplomatic wives carving out lives for themselves in Saigon before the start of the war, a moralistic novel about the dangers of colonialism and good intentions, the story of the complex relationships women have with motherhood, and with each other. Why did she write it? And what has convinced so many that it's going to be a Pulitzer finalist this year? Tune in and find out.

Episode #198: Wes Kingsley's remarkable journey takes us through his CIA assignments in various conflict-ridden regions, such as post-independence Congo, and Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. It also takes us to Burma, which holds a special place in Wes's heart amid all his other adventures, as that is where he met his future wife and developed an appreciation of Buddhism.Wes's first CIA stint was in Eritrea, in Africa. During his time there, the Simba Rebellion in the Congo was heating up. A crisis developed in which American hostages were taken, and Wes was dispatched there to try and rescue them. Wes then went to Vietnam, experiencing the brutality of war and narrowly escaping attacks by the Vietcong, eventually leaving Saigon on one of the very last flights out of the besieged city.Choosing Rangoon as his next destination, Wes hoped for a quieter atmosphere while combating Burma's narcotics trade. He witnessed the violent 1974 crackdown on student protests over the burial of U Thant's body, but found solace in the peaceful nature of the Burmese people.The uncommonly adventurous nature of his life even extended to his Burmese wife-to-be. Due to her inability to get a passport to leave the country, she escaped with gem smugglers to Thailand. Wes had to bribe Thai officials to marry them. Later, during his assignment in Jamaica, working for the State Department, he was “outed” as having worked for the CIA in Africa, resulting in he an assassination attempt on him and his family.From Paris to Liberia to Central America to Manila, Wes' adventurous life continued. But amid all the countries he visited and dangerous challenges he faced, the peaceful nature of the Burmese people and Buddhism still shine brightly in his memory.

In this heartfelt episode, we are joined by a remarkable guest, Luke Liberty, who has an extraordinary and deeply inspiring life story. Luke, as he describes it, was "made in Vietnam but assembled by Americans." Born in 1969 during the Vietnam War, his early years were marked by a remarkable journey of survival and resilience. His mother led their escape from Saigon to the sea, where they eventually boarded a fishing boat, only to be rescued by the US Navy in international waters. Luke's voyage to America was filled with stops in places like the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii, California, and Pennsylvania "Dutch Country," celebrating his seventh birthday along the way.Luke's life story is a testament to the power of hope and the unwavering belief in the goodness of the American spirit. He firmly believes that American soldiers brought a taste of heaven into his life by bringing "America to his doorstep." Throughout this episode, you will hear how Luke's life was forever changed when he and his mother were sponsored by a WW2 veteran and his wife from Fort Indian Town Gap in Annville, PA, in 1975. This remarkable journey instilled in Luke an unshakable belief that America won the Vietnam War, not through conventional victory, but through the hearts and minds of those who witnessed the soldiers' actions. Luke's gratitude and dedication to honoring American soldiers, First Responders, and Veterans are truly inspiring. Tune in to hear his incredible story and his mission to express his gratitude to all Americans for the gift of liberty in his life.Lancaster Connects:✅ Official: https://lancasterconnects.com ✅ Watch the episode or subscribe to the show wherever you listen to podcasts: https://blubrry.com/lancasterconnects/subscribeThank you for watching Lancaster Connects!

However, it is not without issues and games being played by not only our enemies in Hanoi, or their allies in Peking and Moscow, but also by our own friends in Saigon too. This is a fascinating look at the end of the War in Vietnam that so divided the nation and we listen in on the thoughts of the men who brought that war to an end, Richard Nixon and one of his assistants General Alexander Haig.

Earlier this year, I responded to a Facebook post on an ex-pat group. There were looking for someone to be on their YouTube video as they were traveling through Vietnam. So I reached out and then I kind of forgot about it. I didn't really expect the response. But luckily I did, and I was happy to make arrangements to meet Tal Oran, the host of the wildly successful Travelling Clatt YouTube channel. This is what I messaged him,"I'd love to take your own town on the back of my bike and show you the craziness of the traffic firsthand and some food spots that are off the beaten track. And also show you the insane developments here. I've been here for nearly eight years. The amount of new buildings that go up is crazy and there's even a new bridge in downtown. That makes sense silly, but seeing a bridge being built in the middle of a major city was cool."And I still think that's cool. So we arranged to meet at 7:00 AM on a Monday morning. And I did exactly that. I took him around Saigon on the back of my bike. Tal has generously allowed me to share the audio from his YouTube video with you. So enjoy the episode and here's some of my story. If you don't know already. And some of my thoughts on life and Saigon and Vietnam as an expat. I'd love to hear any comments or questions, and then I can feature them on a future episode.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Welcome to Dr. Mary Travelbest's 5 Steps to Solo Travel Guide for women like you who need extra support traveling (slowly) one woman at a time. Please share this podcast with your mom, aunts, and friends. I appreciate your feedback. I've returned from a 90-day trip around the globe to every time zone on the planet. My mission is world peace through cultural exchange. I was sustainable when I could by using local transportation, buses, and trains. I was solo, carrying a small backpack, called a “personal item,” that fit under the seat in front of me on a plane. In this episode, FAQ is: What did you wear in Vietnam? . Today's Destination is Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, formerly known as Saigon (south) Today's Mistake- Currency exchange rate was high, and I got taken Travel Advice: - Shoulder season travel will be less costly and more flexible. FAQ: What did you wear in Vietnam? Like other Southeast Asian countries, it is tropical and humid. I was always hot. I wore the lightest possible clothes and took three showers daily when possible. I also found swimming pools to cool down. I wore a short dress instead of shorts and a blouse. I wore a skirt instead of jeans. I wore sandals. I carried an umbrella for sun protection and wore sunscreen daily. I went out early in the morning and late in the afternoon or evening and slept during the day when I could. Today's destination: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam Formerly Saigon, it's on the coast in the South of Vietnam. The city has 18 districts, and most tourists go to 1, 3, and 5. I took the Hop on Hop Off bus at night, which was pretty amazing because the city is lit up at night like a Christmas tree. This experience covered the main tourist attractions in about 90 minutes. I never could have seen all this during the daytime, with the traffic patterns. Most cars I saw were in traffic jams during the day. How did I plan this part of my trip? I used Booking.com to find hotels. I read guidebooks and talked to friends who have been to Vietnam, especially recently. The taxis are safer, especially the green ones. I shared a ride from the airport to my hotel at midnight with two people I met on the plane. The traffic is light at midnight. During the day, that's different. Quickly, I learned that driving here is a challenge, especially in the Mekong Delta. Listen to that episode. The current exchange rate here is 22,600 dong to the dollar. Your dollar goes far. What did I eat? Fhish sauce and pho, bahn mi. When I got back to HCMC, I was so hungry. Bong Sen Buffet for a $12 buffet. That was one of the best meals. Try a buffet if you don't know what to order. Here's what I ate: pho pork, duck egg, ice cream, fried rice, red bean soup, snails with ginger, vegetable soup, eggplant, steamed veggies, prunes, watermelon, dragon fruit, banana cake, papaya, and spring rolls. I stayed at a different hotel: Huong Sen. https://huongsenhotel.com.vn/aboutus.php?cmblang=en Construction noise from a different floor was so loud at 9 a.m. after a vast buffet breakfast one morning when all I wanted was sleep. I switched to an annex hotel down the block, owned by the same company. Later that day, I Swam in the pools at the hotel, with excellent views of the city. About two blocks away, I walked to the Sheraton Hotel for the 23rd-floor view. That was outstanding, especially near sunset. I also got another Massage, Thai, this time. If you are planning Sights in HCMC, Try these: Rex Hotel, Opera House, downtown shopping malls, and Ben Than Market. What I Bought in Ho Chi Minh City: A folding umbrella for $3.00 Since mine were broken, leather sandals were a good find at the market. I also bought a lock with a key. Later, I bought Pharmacy for meds for a sinus infection. I did not need a prescription to get antibiotics here. I had them, but I have yet to use them. In summary, Ho Chi Minh City had Great hotel buffet breakfasts and plenty of tourists, and it took a lot of work to cross the street safely. I had to follow someone else to travel with them, as it took experience I did not have. Today's Mistake-.The currency exchange rate was too high. I should have talked to more locals before changing money in Vietnam. I got taken. I changed US dollars to Cambodian dong, which I did not need. They took US dollars there everywhere. I switched to Indian Rupees, but they gave me a currency that was being removed from the country, so it was not usable. And they gave me change in Vietnamese currency, which I did not want. So I paid a fee for that exchange, too. I had a lot to learn. And still do. Today's Travel Advice- Shoulder season travel will be less costly and more flexible. You don't always need the “perfect” season for your travel. Go before or after the peak, and you may find a better overall experience. With climate changes, those traditional windows of weather are not exact. Plan some things and leave other non-essentials to spur of the moment. I want to bring meaning to your travels.

This is the first episode in an occasional series examining major counterfactual scenarios in history. As the 60th anniversary of his assassination approaches, a question still hangs over John F. Kennedy's legacy: had he lived and been reelected, would he have withdrawn from Vietnam? It's a tantalizing counterfactual, not only because LBJ's escalation led to an epic tragedy, but because of the relevant lessons we can apply to our foreign policy dilemmas today. In this episode, eminent Vietnam scholar Fredrik Logevall separates fact from myth concerning Kennedy's ideas and intentions for withdrawing U.S. military advisors from the Cold War theater of Southeast Asia. Note: The source of the Kennedy audio tapes is millercenter.org at the University of Virginia.

As a member of the UMS Class of 1958, Brigadier General Grover E. Jackson, began a remarkable journey both academically and professionally with a degree from Sewanee: The University of the South, as well as completing college as a distinguished member of the Air Force ROTC. From this point forward, the achievements and service of Brigadier General Jackson have been a sterling example of what a servant-leader should do with his life. In July 1989, Brigadier General Jackson was assigned the duty of Director of Intelligence, Headquarters U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii. His assignment was to provide accurate and timely intelligence for the United States Pacific Command as well as other significant commands. Only a person with the highest professional credentials and the finest personal character could receive such an assignment that is so essential for the protection of the United States. This impressive promotion was the result of 25 years of dedicated service to the citizens of the United States. In addition to completing a Master of Arts degree in Economics from Syracuse University in 1967, Brigadier General Jackson received training at the best military colleges in the U.S. and among these was the prestigious Air War College in 1982. At various times he was stationed in Texas; Saigon, South Vietnam; RAF Station Chiscksands, England; Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii; Strategic Air Command (SAC) at Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska; Stuttgart, West Germany; and Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. UMS-Wright is fortunate that Brigadier General Jackson has moved permanently to Baldwin County and recently honored our school with a visit along with his daughter, Paige, his son, Garrett, and his wife Anita.

The infamous breakdowns of Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011 represent our deepest fears around nuclear power, yet both disasters happened during peace time. In the early days of the war, Russian forces seized Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine. The site has come under repeated fire, prompting warnings in May this year from the UN nuclear agency that the world risked a "severe nuclear accident". And this isn't a new problem. Here we tell a story with its origins in the Vietnam War and how the threat of the world's first dirty bomb loomed large. The battle over nuclear energy first came to the attention of the West in 1975, as the North Vietnamese Army advanced on Saigon during the end days of the war. Most of the world was unaware at the time that the North Vietnamese were also advancing on a new breed of nuclear reactor, gifted to the South by the US government. Not only was it technology the North's Russian allies did not yet have, it was also a source of weapons-grade nuclear fuel. As a last resort, the US discussed bombing the facility, risking nuclear fallout rather than have the technology fall into Soviet hands. To avoid humanitarian and environmental disaster on a colossal scale, and despite having literally no military experience, a physicist from Idaho called Wally Hendrickson volunteered to be dropped into the front line to remove the fuel rods from the reactor before it was over run. Still alive and well, Wally's story is just as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. The setting may be different, but right now the fear of nuclear disaster hangs over us.

The United States withdrew the last of its troops from Afghanistan in August of 2021, signaling the end of a nearly 20 year conflict that cost 8 Trillion dollars and the lives of 900,000 people, including over 7,000 U.S. Service Members. The U.S. exit from Afghanistan resulted in the Taliban reestablishing armed control of the country and created a refugee crisis as over 1.5 Million Afghans fled. The withdrawal has been widely considered a disaster and a gross display of incompetent leadership from the President down, echoing similar failures seen at Saigon nearly half a century earlier. SRS is honored to present the story and view point from one of the Marines on the ground in Kabul, just days before the last U.S. Embassy fell–Tyler Vargas-Andrews. On August 26th, Vargas-Andrews was gravely wounded by a suicide bombing at the gates of Kabul's Airport, ultimately losing two limbs as a result of his injuries. This premeditated attack killed 60 Afghans and 13 U.S. Service Members.

Rocky, and VPW English commentator, the Canadian-born Carey Wass, share the incredible and unlikely story of Vietnam Pro Wrestling from their early days wrestling on mats with no ring, to having veteran Japanese wrestler Fugofugo Yumeji come to Saigon to train them to putting on their first show and finally getting a real ring.
