  6. Palang Pracharath members abruptly ordered a new birthday cake for party leader Prawit Wongsuwon on Thursday after the original drew scathing reviews for bad taste on social media. The design of the original cake showed the figure of a man supposed to represent Gen Prawit standing on the national flag in the shape of the country.

  10. Incorrect comment, concept of safety is abysmally low in “Some”Commercial Operations If safety was abysmal in all commercial operations we would be reading about Air Crashes in Thailand, Accidents on BTS or MRT, but we don’t. If safety was abysmal in Industrial Operations we would be reading about incidents at Thai Oil Refinery, Indarama Refinery, Banchak Refinery, PTT Global Refinery, Star Petroleum Refinery, Exxon Mobil Sri Racha Refinery, Rayong Purifier Refinery, PTT Global Refinery, but we don’t. If safety was abysmal I Thailand we would be reading about many incidents occurring offshore in the Bongkot Gas Production Field, but we don’t. If safety was abysmal in Thailand we would be reading about incidents at the over 35 Power Stations in Thailand, but we don’t. In Air Travel, BTS, MRT, Refineries, Offshore Exploration, Power Plants etc, all operations are regulated by international standards. In Road Traffic Accidents, Nightclub Fires etc all regulated by the Royal Thai Police and Local Government. If is obvious Thailand can comply with International Safety Standards when regulations are correctly enforced, but as soon as BiB, Local Officials and Brown Envelopes appear it all turns to Rat Shit.

  14. Former Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa arrived in Thailand on Thursday, as he seeks temporary shelter in a second Southeast Asian country after fleeing his island nation last month amid mass protests. Rajapaksa arrived at Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport on a chartered flight from Singapore after the city-state’s immigration authority said in a statement on Thursday he had left Singapore. Rajapaksa is expected to stay temporarily in Thailand after fleeing Sri Lanka for Singapore on July 14. He resigned from office shortly afterwards following unprecedented unrest over his government’s handling of the worst economic crisis in seven decades, and days after thousands of protesters stormed the president‘s official residence and office. Thai authorities said the former military officer, who is the first Sri Lankan head of state to quit mid-term, had no intention of seeking political asylum and would only stay temporarily. “This is a humanitarian issue and there is an agreement that it’s a temporary stay,” Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha told reporters on Wednesday. Rajapaksa could not participate in any political activities while in Thailand, Prayut said.... https://www.thaipbsworld.com/sri-lankas-ousted-president-arrives-in-thailand-for-temporary-stay/ ____ Prayut, in a live mike moment was heard saying, "...he can stay until they find the Red Bull boy..."
  15. The man-made Mountain B pub fire tragedy which led to at least 15 deaths and dozens of injuries was basically preventable. Police confirmed hours after the fire that one exit door was locked, the operator had no license to operate a pub, the place used inflammable acoustic foam panels and more. Such tragedy is more about why it kept occurring than what to do – the latter should be more of a common sense. Before this writer goes into speculating of the why, let’s note what more do we know so far about the preventable tragedy, where disturbing footages showed the more fortunate one rehashing out of the now completely-burnt down pubs with fire on their bodies – something too disturbing to share a link here. Assistant police commissioner Pol. Lt. Gen. Sompong Chingduang said on Friday after initial investigation on the fire that at least on exit door was locked when the fire broke out after 1am in Chonburi province. He said it is unclear how many exit doors existed and how many of them were locked. What’s more, additional construction was also added without permission. Only two fire extinguishers were found inside the establishment, which was almost completely burnt down. Back on July 16, local police visited the place after having received a complaint of noise. Parts of the building were covered with highly inflammable acoustic foam panels. Imagine if the pub did not lock that one exit door (or possibly more), the death toll would have been considerably lower. Imagine if they were more careful and refrain from using highly inflammable acoustic foam panels which simply supercharged the spread of the fire, imagine if police and related government agencies routinely and dutifully inspect the pub and others, imagine how many lives would have been spared. Here are four factors why I think the concept of safety is abysmally low in Thailand. First, profits and corruption trump all else. From the short-term myopic profit-making point of view, it is easier to control possible unauthorized entrance into the pub by locking its rear exit. If the pub operator did not lock it, they would have to hire at least another security staff to man the exit if not more. A singer at the burnt-down pub said the pub always locked the two rear exit doors in fear of customers leaving without paying. Apparently, it was a fatal cost-cutting strategy. Thanapat “Peach” Puangpae, 24, told reporters on Saturday after laying flowers for the deceased that he always entered the pub from one of the backdoors and a guard would come to unlock it and then lock it again after the musicians entered. He admitted he did not think such tragedy would occur. On the other hand, government officials have failed to ensure that these exits are not locked, and it is possible that they turned a blind eye due to corruption. Second, carelessness, or this may happen to others but not us mentality. Would the owner have done differently, not locking the exit doors, chose fire retardant acoustic foam, and more if they are aware that the risk of a tragedy is high? Probably yes, but again, they probably think the risk is low and it would not happen to them. Third, other people’s lives are less important than that of yours and your family. The pub owner and operator would possibly subject their families to such a low safety standard. Last but not least, all these factors (and possibly more) combined means safety is an alien concept for many Thais. A similar incident occurred back in 2009 in Bangkok at Zantika Pub in Ekkamai where 69 died. Apparently, it is all but forgotten with little or no lesson learned.

  16.

  17. I thought so too, but I hoped against hope. Mind you, the game is not yet over, I will say one thing for Trump, he doesn't give up.
  18. I can't find the link today, but I did see a government somewhere, giving it's citizens advice on Monkey Pox which included this important instruction: "Don't attack Monkeys".
  19. At first I thought nothing was going to happen to Trump. Traditionally, politicians above a certain level (President, VP, Speaker of the House, Senate pro temp, senior senators, don't get touched. There was this unsaid agreement between the 2 parties. Nixon's crimes were too big to avoid. Reagan and Iran Contra is part of this. This ended in the '90s with the Republicans going after Clinton for lying in a private lawsuit about getting his dick sucked. Republicans attempting to impeach him ended that unsaid agreement. It ended on one side. The Dems still adhered to it. Bush could easily have been impeached. But they didn't. One other reason is the Dems are scared of the Republicans. Republicans have no problem in getting into the mud and making it messy. They simply have no line. There are no Marquis of Queensbury rules with them. The Dems are corrupt traditionally. Many politicians globally are corrupt that way. Just don't go overboard. The election of Trump signaled to the rest of us that the Republicans are completely gone over the deep end. They will excuse and exonerate anyone and any act as long as their man is in charge. There is no line that we can see so far. None. And the Dems are scared of that. It's a certainty that the Republicans will go after any Dem for anything when they get power over the House in November. Things that both parties do that is corrupt but "acceptable" corruption is now going to have congressional investigations. Just another sign. The government in its present incarnation can not function well enough to run a country this size. It doesn't matter if its good for everyone, all Americans, the Republicans won't vote for it if a Dem president proposes it. Unless they get some sort of quid pro quo. They want a quid pro quo for things they approve of because THEY didn't propose it and won't get credit for it.
  20. Strange considering nearly 30% off all global cases reported are in the USA 9,492 compared to 4 in Thailand. More chance of meeting an infected person in the USA than most of the countries on the list, only Germany, Spain and UK has more cause per capita than USA. MPX Outbreak
