Gnashing of Teeth Among the Coheneem?

By: Jeff Mudrick Posted: July-05-2010 in

Ticket prices for the Leonard Cohen concert have been announced and tickets gone up for sale through Leonard's fan club site, and they range in cost after processing fees, from $281 to over $600 per ticket. That is a rather expensive night out in one of the poorest countries on the planet. I know of one person who has bought a ticket. Apparently that's not a problem as the vast majority of seats are not up for public sale anyway.

The Mirror, Vol. 14, No. 653

Apologies for the delay:

This is sent from Kuala Lumpur. I will be traveling until mid March in fulfilling my task as a member of the Nominating Committee of ICANN – the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the organization that coordinates the management of the Internet addresses worldwide – to help to find candidates for the positions of members of the board of directors and other positions of leadership, and to evaluate and to appoint them.

I hope that the timing of the publication of The Mirror will not be affected too much, but some delays will be unavoidable.

Information and Communication Technology – ICT – is an important factor in the development of a country – it creates jobs, and the services which become possible through the use of its instruments and its infrastructure have a deep impact on the economy and on the society.

Last Wednesday I took a potential partner for dinner at Saigon bistro The Refinery. The food and service were, as ever, amongst the best you’ll encounter anywhere in the country - unlike pretty much anywhere in Vietnam, the restaurant’s staff manage to provide service that’s confident, laid-back and friendly, while remaining efficient and professional. That’s something that Vietnamese waiting staff regularly fail to pull off, more on which shortly.

When a Picture is not Worth 1000 Words

A picture of the dead body of a young female traffic accident victim lying on the street. Is this an image from one of Cambodia's infamously graphic local newspapers? No, it is page 5 of the November 16 English-language Phnom Penh Post, and the editorial decision to use it has outraged many in the expatriate community.
