Quotes

...From its first sentence— "Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice”—it transported the reader to a magical world of tropical fantasy. Aracataca became Macondo, where rains could last five years or deliver yellow flowers. Colonel Buendía was derived from his maternal grandfather, Colonel Nicolás Márquez, who had fought in the Liberal rebellion of 1899-1902 know as the War of the Thousand Days."
...military deals with Vietnam since 2008 represent an attempt to help establish that the Vietnamese are an independent power in Asia, one that isn’t "tied to China's skirts”. Russia talks of a free-trade agreement that would link it together with Belarus and Kazakhstan, in eastern Europe and Central Asia, along with Vietnam, far away from its eastern borders. Russia also upgraded its existing security partnership with Vietnam in 2012, from standard to “ comprehensive ”, which may mean that further energy deals and strategic collaborations are in the pipeline."
...for the Church Times, the prime minister has announced that he wants Britain to be "more confident about our status as a Christian country" and "frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people’s lives"
...And they say they incur costs that the authors have failed to take into account. "The real costs associated with regulatory compliance, foreign currency trade, agent fees and other dealings are largely unknown" the report acknowledges
