Sustainable development becomes a challenge because we have conflicting needs. We want fresh, clean air to breathe but we also want to buy cars We want to conserve forests but we need trees to build houses We want to swim in clean waters but we need factories. Factories usually use water from rivers to power machinery or to cool down machinery How do we balance conflicting needs?

What are the important steps that have to be undertaken to achieve the goals of sustainable development? What arguments could you present to the country’s leaders? Use good arguments to present your point of view. Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, truth table, chart, graphs to support your arguments.

Alternative sources of energy such as wind, solar, hydropower and biomass can be harnessed to meet Vietnam’s rapidly increasing demand for energy. While there has been some early success, deployment of renewable energy has not reached the country’s potentials yet Why is this happening?

Provide solutions to the problems using at least 2 forms of Argument. Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, Truth table, chart, graphs to support your arguments.

Viet Nam is considered as one of the most vulnerable countries due to climate change and sea level rise. If sea level rises to 1 meter, Viet Nam will lose about 12% of land, 23% of population will be affected. Typhoons will occur more frequently with higher intensity. Temperature increases and change in rainfall pattern will affect agriculture and water resources. What are the problems that Vietnam will face in the next 20 years? What are the solutions to the problems using at least 2 forms of Argument. What would you do in the future to prevent these kinds of problems from happening? Use at least 2 different forms of argument to support your views Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, truth table, charts, graphs to support your arguments.

Inspectors of the Provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment found that chemical substances had leaked from a plant belonging to the Lam Dong Bauxite-Alumina Complex in Bao Lam District. Rains washed the substances into the Tan Rai Alumina Plant's drainage facility before running into a large fish pond owned by some local residents. What are the problems?

What are the solutions to the problems?
What would you do in the future to prevent this kind of problem? Use deductive and inductive arguments to prove your point. Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, truth table, chart, graphs to support your arguments.

Small businesses have to be quantified to be effective. All innovations have to be quantified. Eventually everyone working on the business should think in terms of numbers. You’ll quantify everything. Do you agree?

Why?
Use deductive and inductive arguments to prove your point. Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, truth table, chart, graphs to support your arguments.

“It isn't really stealing to copy music off the internet. True artists want their music to reach as many people as possible. They are more concerned about the effect of their music on the world than on base concerns such as money. Most independent artists cannot find distributors. People who share music with their friends on the internet perform a useful service to music as they make more people aware of small artists and the diversity of music that is available.” a. What do you think about the idea? Does it affect to the music development in the world in general, and particularly in Vietnam? b. Are there any problems on intellectual property in music in VN? Given some examples to illustrate your ideas.

c. What are your solutions to the problem in VN at the time being? Give solutions and arguments to convince that your proposal is realizable, using different forms of arguments. Use additional tools such as Venn diagram, Truth table, chart to support your arguments....
