Nguyen Thi Xuan Quynh, as she is known officially, is the first Vietnamese woman to be featured on Google home page that commemorates holidays, events, achievements and people. The painting on the doodle, which recreates a portrait photograph of Xuan Quynh in an ao dai, was illustrated by two Saigon-based artists Phung Nguyen Quang and Huynh Kim Lien, who work together under the pen name KAA. Quynh was born October 6, 1942 in a village now in Hanoi’s Ha Dong District. She was raised by her grandmother and had a talent for dancing. Recruited by the Central Art Troupe in her early teens, she was trained as a dancer and performed in many countries. In the 1960s, she began pursuing her talent for writing, taking training courses at the Vietnam Writers' Association. She later worked with the weekly arts newspaper Van Nghe (arts and literature), the official newspaper of the Hanoi Women’s Union Phu Nu Viet Nam (Vietnamese women), and the publishing … [Read more...] about Xuan Quynh first Vietnamese woman on Google Doodle
Divorced christian woman
I've been married to my second wife for the past decade; it's her second marriage too. Our marriage has had its ups-and-downs, but mostly downs of late as the legal cost of her ex's meddling (he is still fighting custody order) has been growing exponentially. Basically, her entire income goes to lawyers. When I brought up marriage counseling about a year ago, her response was to talk about selling our house, separation, and divorce. It took me by surprise because I was not thinking about divorce. We tried counseling, but it made things worse. Ultimately she made it clear that she realized she wanted to stay with me because she needed my financial support to make ends meet and keep fighting for her child. She flip-flops between "I can't imagine not having you in my life" and "I don't want to be seen in the same room as you." It is really toxic for me and my therapist agrees. Recently, I went to the wake of a high school friend. There, I ran into my high school crush (whom I never had … [Read more...] about Is it time to end my second marriage?

Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was fined $14,037 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct after he fought with Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey last week. Beckham and Humphrey were flagged after they tangled in the third quarter of Cleveland’s 40-25 win. Humphrey, who played Beckham aggressively the entire game, was assessed the same $14,037 fine. The league decided not to levy fines for fighting on both players. First-time offenders are fined $35,096, according to the league’s fine schedule. Humphrey and Beckham began shoving on a running play before grabbing each other’s face masks and going to the ground. Humphrey pinned Beckham and appeared to choke him before being pulled off. Beckham said he will appeal the fine. He'd been fined previously for a fight with ex-Carolina cornerback Josh Norman and could have been fined up to $100,000 for a second offense. Browns center JC Tretter was also fined $14,037 for unsportsmanlike conduct after coming to … [Read more...] about University of Kansas apologizes for Snoop Dogg’s performance
