Quotes

"If someone believes they were transferred [incorrectly] they can complain but I haven’t received any reports of dissatisfaction with the transfers,” said U Khine Myae, the rector of East Yangon University and a former deputy director of the HigherHigher Education Department said."
"It will be step by step, as it is a huge project" he said
"The weak point is that the port is pretty small and far away from production bases [mostly located in the Central region], but the strong point is that it's near Myanmar."
K. Dyson writes: "In 2013 I did a hike in Nepal with 11 other women and it was just so liberating. On a trip with men there's a temptation for them to take charge, to set up the tents or whatever but this was a trip to treasure. In several villages along the way the women opened their doors to us and we crowded in and shared tea and laughed together even though we couldn't speak a word of the same language. I don't think that would have happened if there were men in the frame."
