  1. Apparently she experienced serious complications and stopped breathing during a procedure on her vocal cords at a clinic in Yorkville. She was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital and was put into a medically induced coma after reportedly suffering cardiac arrest. Wonder what the procedure was? Was it really necessary? I always try to stay out of the hands of doctors and hospitals. Dangerous places...
  2. The title is a bit misleading, but if you go on to read the article it states: "...in Japan there are 127 million residents, but only ten thousand Muslims...[and]...a few tens of thousands of foreign workers who are Muslim, mainly from Pakistan..." This number may be a bit on the low side when you compare it to the figure of 127,000 (0.1%) for Japan from Wikipedia below, but overall the general premise of the article is correct that there is a low percentage of Muslims compared to eg some European countries: Numbers given on Wikipedia for Muslim percentage (%) of total population (2010)

  4. By: Dr. Mordechai Kedar There are countries in the world, mainly in Europe, that are presently undergoing significant cultural transformations as a result of Muslim immigration. France, Germany, Belgium and Holland are interesting examples of cases where immigration from Muslim countries, together with the Muslims’ high fertility rate, effects every area of life. It is interesting to know that there is a country in the world whose official and public approach to the Muslim matter is totally different. This country is Japan. This country keeps a very low profile on all levels regarding the
  5. Welbeck could turn out to be a good deal or not, depending how things turn out. I recall Henry's career had stagnated before Wenger brought him to Arsenal and turned things around for him. Also turning to Manchester United, I can't understand how they run the club with so much debt. They're apparently hundreds of millions in debt, yet buying new players for millions more. Isn't it all going to collapse like a house of cards one day like Leeds Utd?
  6. http://youtu.be/X5lwbVBzjPA At 2am on 31/08/14 police were called to the scene of a car crash. A Toyota Altis had crashed into the concrete support column for an overpass in Pataya's Sukhumwit Rd. The driver turned out to be a 25 year old Thai woman dressed in just a bra and a skimpy pair of knickers. When she saw the police she ran off but they caught up with her in a petrol station where the drunk girl proceeded to kick out and swear at the assembled police and reporters before she was handcuffed and driven away in a Baht Bus. Wonder who she was? Maybe returning home from work in a go
  7. From Stickman's weekly column: "...The first Nanapong Comeback Dance Contest was a rousing success. Club Electric Blue dancer Miss May walked away with the top prize, 10,000 baht. The good Reverend Tommy MCed the event and was never short of a humorous quip. It may have been held in Dollhouse, but it felt like a home event for the girls of Club Electric Blue as the bar took 25 supporting girls along, many of who enjoyed a few too many, but still managed to have the time of their life. It was described as being in a time warp and a couple of folks said it was like the Bangkok of old. Y
  8. The army has jailed a group of soldiers for getting into a brawl with air force officers and given their leader additional duties cleaning and cooking for other inmates. Maj Gen Kukiat Srinaka, commander of the 2nd Infantry Division, signed an order on Friday night to punish Lt Pichaya Boonserm, chief of the 30th Cavalry Battalion, and 10 subordinates. They were sent immediately from their base in Prachin Buri to a military prison in Sa Kaeo province, an army source said on Saturday. Lt Pichaya was jailed for 30 days. He will no longer be eligible for promotion or a pension and has been orde
  9. Reading the Facebook comments under the video, several of the Thai posters eg Kun Nato who lives in Hat Yai, seem to be forming a vigilante mob preparing to locate the guy and sort him out by giving him a good kicking. Just found some more info on the Manager news site: The police have located the mahout and 2 of his friends. The mahout in question was named as 23 year-old Narongsak Salangam, but he rather brazenly denies maltreating the elephant, saying he was just using the metal gaff to control the elephant. Meanwhile the elephant, a young 6-year old male bull elephant nicknamed Vigo
  10. Came across this story in Thairath today which was doing the rounds on Thai social media. A Thai mahout was filmed beating his elephant in Hat Yai with a metal goad. Apparently he has several elephants which he uses to make a living by selling sugar cane for tourists to feed the animals. At nighttime when he returns them to the camp, he regularly beats them for 'fun'. http://www.thairath..../content/445987 Clip: https://www.facebook...799072813471462 27/08/14
  11. A battered 3-year-old girl was taken into protective custody by Khlong Ton police last night after she sought help from neighbors in her apartment building to escape physical abuse reportedly inflicted by her teen stepfather. Yupin Apartment owner Nirut Tipmanee called the police after he found a starved toddler with bruises and cigarette burns on her face and body. The 3-year-old girl, whose name was withheld, told rescue volunteers she was injured by her 17-year-old stepfather. "Papa hit me. Papa hit me with a belt and burned me with cigarettes," the girl told the rescue volunteers. "It hu
  12. A Chinese-language teacher at a university in Payao province was arrested for luring teens into sexual encounters through popular chat app “Beetalk.†Police said Sinchai Kimsia, 37, confessed to blackmailing more than 10 women in Payao into having sex with him at a press conference today. So far, the five unidentified victims have come forward to file a police report, but police believe there may be more. According to investigators, Sinchai would ask the victims to send nude photos in exchange for money ‒ as much as THB150,000. After he receives the photos, the teacher would threaten to
  13. Yes could be a fake. As one poster pointed out, he seems to hit the car at about 30 mph so you would have expected him to be thrown in front of the car with such a big difference in relative speeds, rather than just land on top.
  14. Sonti was released today (Sunday) at 10:15 pm Thai time on 12 Million Baht bail after 18 days in jail. http://www.thairath..../content/445736 25/08/14 (26/08/14) Oops. Cross-posted with Flashermac..
