Vietnam’s Magical Golden Bridge 👐

There are two hands at the Cau Vang (Golden Bridge) on the top of Da Nang’s Ba Na Hills, one to pick up the people, the other to hold the bridge together. 

Suspended nearly a mile high above sea level, the 500-foot long bridge was designed by TA Landscape Architecture in Ho Chi Minh City. Said one of its principal designer Vu Viet Anh, the Instagramable scene intends to look like “giant hands of Gods, pulling a strip of gold out of the land.”

Viewpoint: Could one man have shortened the Vietnam War?

Malcolm Gladwell digs up a Vietnam War story to highlight the importance of listening in removing detrimental bias:

Listen up. Face the music. Ignore bias for reality. Go with your gut and speak up when others are myopic.
