Remember what makes music so incredible? And what connects you to those songs that you love? It’s the voice. The Voice, originally from Holland, is a reality TV show aimed to search for beautiful, special voices and has been produced in 47 countries. Now adopted by Vietnam, only the second Asian country after South Korea, The Voice of Vietnam, or “Giong Hat Viet”, will be coming this 2012 with the winning prize of up to 5oo mil VND. The contestants also have the chance to learn and work with Dam Vinh Hung, Ho Ngoc Ha, Thu Minh and rocker Tran Lap (four expected judges of the show). Different from other singing competitions such as Idol, “Giong Hat Viet” is designed just for real singing talents. Why? Firstly the candidates who perform in the first phase – the blind audition are selected strictly by experienced singers and only max 70 of them are chosen (Compared to Idol’s 500). Secondly, during the blind audition, all judges cannot see the performances, only hear. The selected candidates may not be those who present a song in a stylish way or perform successfully, but must be those who are able to show their voice impressively. No pretty faces, no cool tricks, no swags, just Voice. After the first phase of the show, singers can be selected by, or select a judge to work
with. They will be mentored and supported by their coach to prepare for the battle phase. Therefore, being able to choose a suitable coach is very important. However, since in this phase they also have to compete against other members within the same team, so they could consider avoiding joining a team with lots of good singers. Finally, in the final phase-the live performance shows, the coach continues to support their contestants. However, their fate is relied on public vote. In the end, both the coaches and the people decide who has the most amazing voice in the show. The preliminary will be held on May 24th and June 1st in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City respectively. Let us all look forward to the surprises it will bring.

Green Living Lan-Anh Ngoc Bach
What is “green living”? Green Living actually is a way that helps reducing natural resources consumption and negative environmental effects by re-acting your living habits. Green Living means to meet the present demand without damaging resources for future generations. It can be seen as the most viable aspect of Sustainability Development.
Have you ever thought about changing yourself for the better? Changing your way of living may sound hard but it’s actually just about some small changes you’ll have in your daily actions to make your life “GREEN”. Follow these easy steps and see how your life will improve!
Step 1: Consume wisely, or better yet, eco-wisely!
Step 2: Home safe home
- Choose eco friendly covers such as paper or leaf instead of plastic (E.g: Choose leaf-covered “xoi” instead of plastic-covered ones). Moreover, try to use reusable shopping bags instead of plastic ones. - Plan your shopping, or have a to-buy list. Never put yourself in a dilemma where you are stuck with undesired items. Be smart and your money will stay with you.
- Grow vegetables on roof /balcony. I bet you have once tried to grow a small black pea plant when you are studying Agriculture Technology in primary school. It was fun and easy! You can do the same with small tomato or red chili trees. They don’t take much space but can be useful when you need some spices or a slice of tomato for your salad. It’s surely healthy because it is your own product.

Step 3: Take out the garbage!!! - Classify garbage to reuse and recycle. Recycling not only helps to reduce the amount of raw materials taken from natural resources for manufacturing but also helps to decrease the garbage on our planet. - Everyone should consider using fabric handkerchiefs instead of paper ones. Saving paper means saving trees. Additionally, remember to use both sides of paper. This simple action can help us save tons of trees.
Step 4: Save your energy
- Use energy saving electric appliances and turn off electric appliances when not in use. Duh. Your mom had said it. The TV had said it. Itâ€™s also been promoted during Earth hour campaign as well. Do it. - Participating in Green Transport. Even though nowadays we cannot avoid using transportations which produce a lot of emissions to the atmosphere, we can still minimize their impact on the environment. What we can do in fact is to turn off your motorbike when you stop for more than 25 seconds to wait for the traffic red light, for example - Slow food. Donâ€™t depend too much on fast-food. Provide yourself with enough nutrition. More fresh vegetables and fruits in your daily meals.
Step 5: Stay healthy, be happy - Keep a good posture while working at the desk, daily exercise helps too. Students like us spend most of the time reading, writing or sitting in front of the computer screen. If you are not in a good position, your neck or your backbone will hurt badly. - Surround yourself with good music and arts. Living green means that you have not only a strong physical body but also a good spirit for your daily work and activities. Keep a healthy mind! Good luck!

Successfu “Communication: key to success” Indeed. But how do you communicate at work? Imagine yourself as a bank officer. Now imagine you have a staff of dozen. You also meet hundreds of people per month. For business. VIPs watch your every single movement. No. Mistake. Allowed. Admittedly, how should you communicate at work? Ngô Huy Anh, an RMIT alumnus, knows the right answer. He does them all on regular basis. “In every situation, keep calm and be formal to seize the customer’s trust”, he advises.
After graduating from RMIT Saigon in the late 2010, friends invited him to start as a trainee in Standard Chartered Bank* in January 2011. 10 months later he got promoted to be the leader of Sales Department. To progress this far in less than a year, especially in such a big international bank, only a few people are capable of. Fact is: he is NOT a born - genius, he was just like us, mostly. He used to be a normal high school student just like we were. But what impressed Huy Anh and made him give up his University Conventions to go to RMIT

In his interview, Huy Anh shares one of the main reasons for his early success: his perfected communication skill. It was only until he took Business Communication class had he realized the importance of communication in future career. Unfortunately, most current RMIT students underestimate Business Communication because of its lack in practical application. “BCom (business communication class) is very important, it teaches us the very basic principles of how to do business with people from various backgrounds, T.Vu when your attitude and etiquette mean more than

I bet most of you are thinking about a romantic date with your boyfriend or girlfriend right now. But have you ever tried a date with your friends? It is great fun, especially when you can bake and chit chat with your BFFs at the same time. Are you curious? Let me tell you all the fun that my friends and I had. We, RMIT students, were enjoying the rest of the semester break. But how come, we felt so lonely when there’s no one home. We were also so bored of the sleep late days. As a result, our gang decided that we had
some games which I found pretty similar to Songoku’s tricks in “The Dragon Balls” comic series. You should try it someday if you have never heard of it. It’s extremely fun to play with and to exercise as well!
After lunch, we hurriedly headed back to my home sweet home for some more fun.
When the day came, before the main activity, we gathered at another friend’s house from early in the morning to try some Kinect battles - motion sensing device by Microsoft. We played with many different games such as: volleyball, boxing, bowling and even
mixture little by little. Finally, the little uncooked cupcakes were put in the oven at about 180oC. When we were waiting for the miracles to happen inside the oven, we played some games. One is Scrable, is a very academic game. It is the best game if you want to improve your English vocabulary. Another game is Poker, which I guess, is already familiar with all Vietnamese. Poker is not allowed at university, so we played it at home. “Ding dong”. The oven’s clock alert that the baking time is up. Our cupcakes were baked nicely and

I know how to bake, am I talented? Yes, of course I am. Out of all the recipes in my special baking techniques notebook, my friends chose cupcakes. The ingredients for our cupcakes included only eggs, sugar and flour. There are two must-have items if you want to be successful at baking cupcakes are egg mixer and oven.

eing fired for using the employer’s toilet was one of the main reasons why many African American housemaids lost their jobs back in the early 1960’s, when racial discrimination was a disturbing issue at its most controversial level. Based on Kathryn Stockett’s novel ‘The Help’, the movie of the same name, directed by Tate Taylor, has succeeded to portray American society in the South during the Civil Rights era, especially in Jackson, Mississippi. ‘The Help’ with the combination of irony amusement and painful paradoxes, which can only be caused by racial hatred, can make you both laugh, and cry. ‘The Help’ is about the relationships between three women, one white – Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan (Emma Stone) – who works as a writer, and two colored – Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis) and Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer) – who are housemaids working for white people, and their stories of pursuing their dreams. ‘The Help’ takes us back to the 60’s when such dreams are constrained by the law of discrimination, and that’s where all the featured details making this movie stand out differently start to come in.
It was a world where all African American girls already know their future jobs when they are only six – to be servants working for elite ‘white’ families. The maids have to do all the housework such as cooking, cleaning, doing the laundry, even raising the children for the white ladies. A moment of silence when an innocent baby girl kisses on the cheek of the maid and says, “You’re my real mother, Aibileen!”, which has us thinking about how good in nature these maids are but how badly they are treated by the host families. ‘The Help’ begins by the interview with Aibileen Clark about how h a rd it is to work as a maid in a white family, where she gets no respect because of her race. Aibileen is a middle-aged black woman who has spent her life raising white children, but her true desire is to do something else, something that her lost son has always wanted them to do. Her best friend, Minny Jackson, is known as the best cook in Mississippi, but her outspokenness has put her in situations of being fired several times, all she ever dreams of is to get her children away from Leroy, her brutal and domineering husband. The interviews with these women, done by Eugenia Phelan, are all carried out in secret and served to the completion of a book called ‘The Help’, which tells stories of the colored women when working as housemaids – the experiences that they would never have shared. It is the idea of Eugenia, and her burning ambition is to have it published. Three fates, three dreams, one purpose – the book. However, it is not an easy job as all media products discussing about race equality are forbidden in the law in the recent time; the maids are also afraid to cooperate and share their thoughts due to fear of unemployment. Many obstacles are facing them along the way, even when things are in the most darkness, a small light of hope

Director: Tate Taylor Starring : Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney, Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain can still bring changes. ‘The Help’ tells an amazing story of how these three women overcome difficulties to fulfill their wishs, even though they are “illegal”. And for that, it takes them more than just efforts to achieve such dreams, especially when society is pointing their swords against them. A maid is threatened with death just because she steps on a beautiful garden on theway to work; another is literally willed to her host’s daughter and granddaughter, like they own her. The hatred even

reaches its pitch when “Home Help Sanitation Initiative”, a bill whose content is an obvious insult to the African American community, is reviewed by the Surgeon General and passed to the State Governor. Plenty of such heartbroken and inhumane stories combining altogether have formed a complete picture of the time, best left for the viewers to discover.
The movie was nominated for Best Picture in over ten reliable movie awards including the 84th Academy Awards 2012. Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer also won a number of awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE A
The Downfall of an Emperor ?
re you a football fan? (As in using “foot” to play the “ball”, not the stupid American football where you use “hand” to play with an “egg”). If you are, then which country’s football league do you find most thrilling and intriguing? I bet about 90% of your answers would be “English Premier League” (EPL). The fact that EPL has long taken a respected place around the world is not surprising. One of the reasons is that EPL invests a lot of money and efforts to help fans everywhere “experience” not just “watch” games. The stadiums stands are built close to the fields so that some lucky fans can literally touch the players, others shout at the players, express their emotions to the finest to their heroes on the fields. And if some fans are really lucky, maybe even a ball to the face.
For fans watching on TV, it is without a doubt that the EPL’s camera system is the world’s best. Unlike many other leagues including V-League, EPL have perfected their camera setting and placements providing replays from every angle possible for the fans to see things that the referees and the players do not. Hence fans have the chance to be unprofessional critics, raise their voice and enjoy cursing the incompetence of the people involved. In other words, EPL has long managed to let all football fans “live” every moment of the game. Result? EPL occupies a very special place in the fans’ hearts. But just the flashy look and lively views cannot build up EPL’s image that successfully without high quality standard of the English football clubs themselves. Almost every clubs plays with high tempo, very physical football style. That creates a very enthralling atmosphere for the watchers. Their best teams – Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool… are loved all over the worlds for their styles. English clubs also win trophies with style as well. Statistically, in recent years, EPL’s teams have proved to be in complete dominance compared to other leagues in Europe in UEFA Champions League (UCL). From 2005 until now, there was only one UCL final featuring both nonEnglish teams. During that period, three seasons 3 out of 4 teams in the semi-finals were English and 2008 title was the domestic matter between Manchester United and Chelsea.
current magazine issue02 | 11
But things seem to have changed. Even Chelsea’s miraculous semi-final win against Barca cannot mask an obvious decline of English football. Their domestic Champion – Manchester United failed to make it out of an easy group stage against Benfica, Basel and Otelul Galati (don’t blame me if I get this anonymous team’s name wrong) whose class and skill cannot compare to that of the English champion. Man United put on a very weak, dispirited show and lost out to Basel, humiliated right at their home “Theatre of Dreams”. Another team just as disappointing was Manchester City. Despite spending nearly a billion dollar over the years upgrading the team, Man City still proves to be so naïve in European competition. Their fans can blame their failure on that they were in a tough table with Napoli, Bayern Munich and Villarreal, but their performance still did not live up to the money they’ve spent, it’s a fact. They lost to Napoli who spent no more than 15mil each year. Even worse, after going down to the lower competition – Europa League, the two Manchester teams totally showed what an embarrassment they were. The
English Champions were outplayed in both legs against a 7th-place team in La Liga- Atheletic Bilbao and went out in the most terrible fashion. Meanwhile, Man City showed more spirit with a 3-2 win against Sporting Lisbon at Etihad after losing 2-1 in Portugal but still got K.O. What a shame! Two leaders of the EPL got toyed in a second-rate league! That makes you wonder what have become of the prestigious EPL we used to know. In the next few years, if EPL clubs do not try to improve and continue to play like they did this season, maybe football fans around the world will turn to La Liga instead, with two giants Barcelona and Real Madrid dominating, or even Bundesliga, where Dortmund and Bayern Munich are showing great intensity and flair with their styles. Wake up, now or never, English football!

“A Pro Photographer or a Pro Photoshoper ? “
n the last few years, Photography has emerged as a popular trend among the Vietnamese youth. People love taking photos, capturing and sharing memoriable moments of their life with friends and family, however, not many of us know much about Photography. A lot of people have been thinking that in order to have an outstanding picture, a photographer would need an excellent skill in Photoshop (PS) to retouch and change the original picture into any way he wants. It is totally a misunderstanding. As a freelance photographer with some experience collect-
ed from experts, I would like to share a few opinions about this topic.
I bet Photoshop is so familiar with everyone who is interested in photos. This God-given software could help make amazing pictures. However, be careful, it might ruin your photography technique if you overuse it. Using Photoshop is not a bad thing, but knowing how to use it adequately is very important. In fact, most experts have a deep understanding about their cameras and photography. They use Photoshop only to make minor retouch to their photos and please their
