Others are learning self-defense skills following the murder of several colleagues. It’s only 8 p.m., but 42-year-old Nguyen Hung Thuan, who has been a GrabBike driver for around two years, has stopped receiving bookings from customers, choosing to merely sit and surf the internet at a corner of Nguyen Cong Tru and Nam Ky Khoi Nghia Streets in District 1. Normally, early morning and night-time are the peak hours for GrabBike drivers to earn extra money because of higher demand. "I used to pick up passengers until 11 p.m. and return home close to midnight, but now I don’t dare to. I am afraid of being robbed and killed," said Thuan, who rents a room in District 8 with his wife and two children. "After 8 p.m. I turn off my ride-hailing app and take a rest. Anyone would like to earn more money, but safety comes first. Some of my people have lost their lives after late-night trips to remote areas and outlying districts because they were not careful. " Le Hung Minh, 32, who … [Read more...] about GrabBike drivers brake early, fearing for their lives
As a teenager, it was a joke to answer uncertainty. As an adult, Blake McCarty’s joke about just wanting to create good art with good people when he grew up became the thing he gets to do professionally, every day.“Fast forward and I’m very lucky to do just that, even if I’ve opted not to focus on a specific career path or a single skill,” said the creator and director of the Verbitas program for New Village Arts. “More generally, one of my core beliefs is that empathy and understanding are critical to our health, happiness and sheer survival. During particularly divisive social and political times, storytelling is one of the only ways to build understanding and develop empathy. In my opinion, live theater forces us to engage with other people’s humanity, experience and perspective in ways unlike any other medium.”With Verbitas, he’s working directly with students in local high school theater programs, using community organizing … [Read more...] about Expanding high school students’ lives through theater
Love Letters newsletter signup. Dear Meredith, I've been dating a man for about two months and the attraction is undeniable. It's the best sex of my life, he's got similar career and life goals, he's smart, makes me laugh when I'm panicking about nothing, he's grounded and tender. OK, OK ... yes, I'm in the honeymoon phase. But something is stopping me from going further into this relationship – the fact that he wants to move back to his home country in a few years, and he seems quite convinced he doesn't want to live here – Canada – long-term. And there is just no way I can see myself living where he is from. I want to explore things with him for a bit longer, but I'm really afraid that in a few months or in a year, we'll just be in the same place – or rather, we won't be because we won't want to live in the same country. I'm 32 and I do want to have children. I know I still have time, but it just feels like at this stage in my life, dating someone "just for … [Read more...] about He doesn’t want to live in Canada
