Shift focus to economy

 Cache   
Against the backdrop of a deteriorating economy, Thailand has over the past four months seen a series of mass layoffs along with closures of businesses. With industry experts and observers predicting a higher unemployment rate for next year, the worst is probably yet to come. But the government does not seem to be prepared for it.

Bangkok asylum seekers appeal to Pope Francis

 Cache   
Pakistani asylum-seekers in Thailand hope Pope Francis will recognize their plight during his Nov. 20-23 visit to Thailand.

BANGKOK -- When Pope Francis celebrates Mass in a Bangkok sports stadium Nov. 21, tens of thousands of Catholics from across Thailand will congregate to celebrate with him.

Updated 2019-11-06 14:45

But several devout Pakistani Christians will probably stay away, despite desperately wanting to be there. By venturing outdoors to attend the Mass, they run the risk of being arrested by authorities and deported.

They hope the Pope will recognize their plight and speak out on their behalf when he visits Thailand Nov. 20-23 before spending three days in Japan.

“If I could meet Pope Francis in person, I’d ask him to please help us. Pope Francis often speaks up for refugees. Maybe he could do that for us, too,” said a man identified as James, an asylum seeker.

“I really want to meet the Holy Father and tell him about the situation in Pakistan and our situation in Bangkok,” said another Pakistani Christian. “But I know it’s impossible.”

Another Pakistani Christian believes acknowledgement of their plight by the Pope would help their cause.

“It could make a big difference for our community,” said the asylum-seeker from Islamabad. “It would be very helpful to us.”

Thailand is the temporary home of about 1,500 Pakistani Christians who fled Pakistan in fear for their lives. They were driven away by an increasingly militant form of Islam that has come to dominate the public sphere, threatening the rights and freedoms of religious minorities.

In Thailand, however, they are regarded as illegal migrants who are subject to arrest and deportation. So they remain in hiding, waiting for a chance to relocate to a welcoming third country. 

Their plight was chronicled in a recent series in The Catholic Register, which described an effort being led by the Archdiocese of Toronto, and supported by dioceses across the country, to bring 65 of these families to Canada.

“Any time we go outside, we could be arrested,” said James, from Lahore, Pakistan, who works part time, illegally, as an interpreter for a Catholic organization.

“We are suffering. It’s very difficult. I’ve been in Bangkok for nearly seven years. It might take another year and a half before I can leave (for a third country).”

But James said he will attend the Mass to see the Pope.

“I’ll be there,” he stressed. “I think every Catholic should be there.”

To avoid being incarcerated in overcrowded immigration detention centres, asylum-seekers like James are hiding in small apartments, trying to stay out of sight. Even when they venture outdoors they do so only briefly to avoid immigration police officers.

“I only go out at night, after 10 p.m. or 11 p.m., when there are fewer people on the streets,” James said. “When you live like us, you have a constant fear in your mind that makes you paranoid. You keep looking over your shoulder, thinking everyone is staring at you. It’s very damaging psychologically.”

Another Pakistani Catholic asylum-seeker who lives in Bangkok told ucanews.org: “I don’t know if I can go and see His Holiness. ... If I go there and (the authorities) stop me, that will be a big problem for me, because I don’t have any documents.”

He fled Karachi after he was accused of defaming Islam, a capital offence in the conservative Muslim nation. He arrived in Thailand on a tourist visa, which has long since expired. He lives frugally on monthly handouts and food packages from Christian charities.

If he stays home he will watch the broadcast live on a Thai television channel.

Some asylum-seekers will take their chances to attend the Mass so as to be near Pope Francis.

“If it’s possible for me, I’ll go,” said a Catholic electrician from Islamabad who has been in Bangkok since 2013. “If I could speak to him, I would ask the Holy Father, ‘Please help us get to a safe haven like you have helped Syrian Muslims.’ ”

In recent years, Pope Francis has repeatedly called on Europeans and their nations’ governments to welcome the more than one million migrants from the Middle East and Africa.

Thai English skills dip for third year

 Cache   
Thailand's English proficiency has fallen for the third year in a row, according to the annual English Proficiency Index conducted by the global education company EF Education First. The report showed Thailand dropped to 74th out of 100 countries with a score of 47.62, which is considered "very low" proficiency. In 2018, Thailand ranked 64th out of 88 countries studied in the report with a score of 48.54, while in 2017 it ranked 53rd out of 80 countries with a score of 49.7. Thailand has the third lowest score in Southeast Asia, behind Indonesia and ahead of Myanmar and Cambodia, and ranked 17th out of 25 countries in Asia. By region, central and northern Thailand had slightly higher English proficiency than the Northeast and the South. Bangkok has the highest level of English proficiency in Thailand followed by Nonthaburi province, Chiang Mai, Chonburi and Khon Kaen. Men in Thailand scored slightly above women in the report, rating 48.68 and 47.59, respectively. Singapore ranked fifth in the world, the highest in Asia and behind four wealthy Northern European countries with the Netherlands at the top. The Philippines came in second in Southeast Asia, followed by Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar and Cambodia in last place. The Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand all recorded a downward trend in their scores, while Cambodia and Myanmar saw improvement. The report warns that countries such as Thailand and Cambodia with economies that rely heavily on tourism could suffer from lack of English proficiency. With English as the de facto international language, tourists may choose a competing destination where it is easier to get by with only English. In Asia, women ranked higher than men in English proficiency with a score of 53.30, compared with mens' score of 52.71. Worldwide there was less of a spread, but women still outscored men 53.23 to 53.03. The 26-30 age range scored the best in English proficiency both in Asia and worldwide. The English Proficiency Index is based on an analysis of 2.3 million who took English tests administered by EF education first. The report found English proficiency to be improving worldwide, however, in Asia it has remained stagnant the past five years. https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/1787899/thai-english-skills-dip-for-third-year
          

Non mourning Thai lady

It sounds like you're guilty for introducing him to Thailand. Are you crazy? You gave this guy a new lease on life! Also he helped this girl by buying this girl a house and commit to renovating it. You know, he might have been happy doing this for her and had some satisfaction of a job well done. You can't take it with you. It sounds preposterous but maybe he was reliving his early life - all the time knowing he'll be dead soon. I mean if the way I go out is having some hot chick riding me...

Baa99, Aad thing was, he spent only 3 weeks there. He then came back to the States for more treatments. Our last conversation on the phone, I could tell he was just worn down physically and emotionally. He called me from just leaving the doctor's office. They told him, if he makes it through this round, he would have to have treatment every 2 weeks. He said, I will never get back to Thailand now.. He has traveled all around the world and he photographed alot if his travels. I wish there was someway his pictures and story could be told. It was kinda funny when in our last conversation he said I want pancakes and a cat. I'm like repeat that please I thought I misunderstood him.. We were polar opposites in a lot of things. Kinda like Coss and Cav with our current political issues. But were we good friends. Thanks all for letting me vent..

Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

 Cache   
The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.

Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.

Political Tension/Civil unrest
The political situation in Thailand continues to be unpredictable. On 22 May 2014, the Thai military took control of the government in a coup and imposed martial law nationwide. On 1 April 2015, martial law was lifted across most of Thailand but replaced by other special measures which continue to allow the military expanded powers to enforce order.

    Comment on U.S. senator blasts Apple for ‘risking compromise to authoritarianism’ in China by North American Wanderer

     Cache   
    one starring me won’t change the truth of what i have seen or heard. To the down voters have you been to Hong Kong? i didn’t go this trip but i’ve been there twice and also been to Taiwan. writing this in singapore which is 90% overseas Chinese. been to Malaysia, cambodia and Thailand. ‘ i bet many of the people downing Apples actions don’t give a rats ass about helping oppressed Chinese, they just don’t like China. Most i doubt have even spoken to Chinese person or visited Asia. BTW some local news reports show arrested Hong Kong ‘protestors’ as former triad (mafia) members who were looting shops etc (just as Apple hinted at in their statement) Blogs say some of those arrested claim they were paid and armed by USA agents Also imagine this, try Changing USA to China in headlines for the last 20 years and see how you feel like: “China invades Iraq on pretext of WMD. Chinese kills hundreds of iraqis (that did not attack China) and begins decades long war that kills, maims hundreds of thousands. Chinese invasion causes rise of ISIS and destabilizes region all the way to Syria causing millions of refugees to flee. Hundreds of Chinese drone strikes kills thousands including women and children. etc: Many believe China did this to control middle East oil. China did not attack Saudi arabia although most of the 9/11 attackers hitting beijing came from Saudi Arabia. “ see when you put china instead of USA it looks different huh? That’s how the world sees USA like it or not. Americans live in a world of their own media and politicians illusion
              

    Satwa Langka di Ibu Kota Baru Indonesia

     Cache   
    Presiden Republik Indonesia Joko Widodo [Jokowi] resmi mengumumkan Provinsi Kalimantan Timur sebagai Ibu Kota Indonesia yang baru, di Istana Negara, Jakarta, Senin [26 Agustus 2019]. Pernyataan tersebut disampaikan Presiden, setelah melalui kajian mendalam tiga tahun terakhir. Kalimantan Timur, sebagaimana dilansir dari kaltimprov.go.id, merupakan provinsi terluas kedua setelah Papua, dengan potensi sumber daya alam melimpah. Luas hutan Kalimantan Timur, berdasarkan data 2015 sekitar sekitar 8.339.151 hektar, sungguh memiliki keragaman hayati luar biasa.

    Berikut delapan satwa langka kebanggaan Indonesia yang ada di Kalimantan Timur, representasi dari sedikitnya kekayaan hayati yang harus dilindungi dan dilestarikan.

    Badak Sumatera
    Badak sumatera merupakan satwa langka yang berdasarkan IUCN statusnya ditetapkan Kritis [Critically Endangered], atau satu langkah menuju kepunahan di alam liar. Berdasarkan data Population and Habitat Viability Analysis [PHVA] 2015, populasinya diperkirakan kurang dari 100 individu.

    Satwa bercula dua ini tersebar hingga India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, Semenanjung Malaysia, termasuk Kalimantan dan Sumatera, dan diklasifikasikan dalam tiga subjenis.

    Badak sumatera diklasifikasikan dalam tiga subjenis. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis sumatrensis tersebar di Sumatera, Malaysia, dan Thailand. Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni ada di wilayah Kalimantan. Sementara Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis ditemukan di Vietnam, Myanmar bagian utara hingga Pakistan bagian timur.

    Di Kalimantan Timur, jenis Dicerorhinus sumatrensis harrissoni masih ditemukan di Kabupaten Kutai Barat. Satu individu betina bernama Pahu saat ini berada di Suaka Rhino Sumatra [SRS] Hutan Kelian Lestari.

    Sementara, untuk subjenis Dicerorhinus sumatrensis lasiotis, beberapa peneliti badak menyebutkan, keberadaannya sudah tidak terlihat lagi sejak puluhan tahun lalu. Diindikasikan punah.

    Orangutan Kalimantan
    Orangutan merupakan satu-satunya kera besar yang hidup di Asia. Diperkirakan, sekitar 20 ribu tahun lalu, orangutan tersebar di seluruh Asia Tenggara, dari ujung selatan Pulau Jawa hingga ujung utara Pegunungah Himalaya dan Tiongkok bagian selatan. Kini, 90 persen orangutan hanya ada di Indonesia yaitu di Sumatera dan Kalimantan, sementara sisanya ada di Sabah dan Sarawak, Malaysia.

    Indonesia merupakan habitat tiga jenis orangutan: orangutan sumatera, orangutan kalimantan, dan orangutan tapanuli. Namun, ketiganya berstatus Kritis [Critically Endangered] berdasarkan kriteria yang ditetapkan International Union for Conservation of Nature [IUCN].

    Orangutan kalimantan [Pongo pygmaeus], hampir berada di seluruh hutan daratan rendah Kalimantan [Kalimantan Timur, Kalimantan Barat, Kalimantan Tengah], kecuali Kalimantan Selatan dan Brunei Darussalam.

    Orangutan kalimantan dikelompokkan tiga anak jenis yaitu Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus [utara Sungai Kapuas hingga timur laut Sarawak]; Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii [tersebar dari selatan Sungai Kapuas hingga bagian barat Sungai Barito]; serta Pongo pygmaeus morio [dari Sabah hingga selatan Sungai Mahakam, Kalimantan Timur].

    Rangkong
    Rangkong merupakan burung yang masuk keluarga Bucerotidae [julang, enggang, dan kangkareng], yang ditandai ukuran tubuhnya dari 65 cm hingga 170 cm.

    Di Indonesia, ada 13 jenis rangkong. Sembilan jenis tersebar di Sumatera dan Kalimantan yaitu enggang klihingan, enggang jambul, julang jambul-hitam, julang emas, kangkareng hitam, kangkareng perut-putih, rangkong badak, rangkong gading, dan rangkong papan. Khusus Kalimantan, semua jenis rangkong tersebut dapat dilihat kecuali rangkong papan.

    Empat jenis lain adalah julang sumba, julang sulawesi dan kangkareng sulawesi, serta julang papua.

    Beruang Madu
    Beruang madu merupakan satwa liar dilindungi berdasarkan Undang-Undang No. 5 Tahun 1990 dan juga Peraturan Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan Republik Indonesia Nomor P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/12/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi.

    Berdasarkan CITES [Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species], beruang madu dimasukkan dalam Appendix I sejak 1979 yang berarti tidak diperbolehkan diburu. Sejak 1994, statusnya dikategorikan Rentan [Vulnerable/VU] yang menunjukkan statusnya menghadapi tiga langkah menuju kepunahan di alam liar.

    Beruang madu [Helarctos malayanus] merupakan maskot Kota Balikpapan, Kalimantan Timur. Persebarannya ada di ujung timur India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Kamboja, Vietnam, Malaysia, serta Sumatera dan Kalimantan.

    Bekantan
    Satwa bernama latin Nasalis larvatus ini dikenal dengan julukan kera belanda karena hidungnya mancung. Satwa endemik Kalimantan ini hidup di ekosistem hutan mangrove. Konversi habitat, perburuan, kebakaran hutan, dan illegal logging menyebabkan nasibnya di ujung tanduk.

    Bekantan merupakan satwa dilindungi Undang-undang Nomor 5 Tahun 1990 tentang Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam Hayati dan Ekosistemnya. Jenis ini masuk daftar CITES Apendix I yang artinya tidak boleh diperdagangkan. IUCN memasukkan statusnya Genting [Endangered/EN].

    Owa
    Owa merupakan primata tak berekor anggota suku Hylobatidae. Indonesia merupakan rumah besar 7 jenis owa dari 19 jenis yang ada di Asia. Ada Hylobates moloch [owa jawa] yang tersebar di Jawa Barat dan sebagian Jawa Tengah; Hylobates lar [serudung] yang berada di Sumatera bagian utara; Hylobates agilis [ungko] di Sumatera bagian tengah ke selatan; juga Symphalangus syndactylus [siamang] di seluruh Sumatera.

    Berikutnya, Hylobates klosii [bilou] di Pulau Mentawai, Sumatera Barat; Hylobates muelleri [kelempiau] di seluruh Kalimantan; serta Hylobates albibarbis [ungko kalimantan atau kalaweit] yang berada di Kalimantan bagian barat.

    Seluruh owa dilindungi Permen LHK P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi.

    Pesut Mahakam
    Pesut Mahakam [Orcaella brevirostris] merupakan lumba-lumba air tawar yang merupakan simbol Provinsi Kalimantan Timur. Habitatnya di Sungai Mahakam. Ukuran tubuh pesut dewasa hingga 2,3 meter dengan berat mencapai 130 kg. Tubuhnya abu-abu atau kelabu dengan bagian bawah lebih pucat.

    Badan Konservasi Dunia International IUCN menetapkan statusnya Genting [Endangered/EN]. Penurunan habitat, polusi suara dari frekuensi tinggi kapal yang melintas, industri, sampah hingga jaring adalah ancaman kehidupan yang dihadapi pesut saat ini.

    Rencana zonasi habitat pesut di Kutai Kartanegara [Kukar], Kalimantan Timur, yang diusulkan Yayasan RASI [Rare Aquatic Species of Indonesia] adalah harapan utama lestarinya Irrawady Dolphin di masa mendatang.

    Penyu
    Indonesia merupakan rumah bagi enam spesies penyu dari tujuh spesies yang ada di dunia. Enam jenis tersebut adalah penyu hijau [Chelonia mydas], penyu sisik [Eretmochelys imbricata], penyu lekang [Lepidochelys olivacea], penyu belimbing [Dermochelys coriacea], penyu pipih [Natator depressus], dan penyu bromo [Caretta caretta].

    Di perairan Kepulauan Derawan, Kalimantan Timur, banyak ditemukan penyu hijau. Jenis ini merupakan pemakan tumbuhan yang sesekali memangsa hewan kecil.

    Berdasarkan Peraturan Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan Nomor Republik Indonesia Nomor P.106/MENLHK/SETJEN/KUM.1/12/2018 tentang Jenis Tumbuhan dan Satwa yang Dilindungi disebutkan bahwa penyu bromo, penyu hijau, penyu sisik, penyu lekang, dan penyu pipih merupakan jenis dilindungi.

    Pelaku kejahatan bisa dijerat UU No.5 Tahun 1990 tentang Konservasi Sumber Daya Alam Hayati dan Ekosistemnya. Ancamannya, 5 tahun penjara dan denda Rp100 juta.


              

    15 Killed In Deadliest Attack To Hit Thailand's Restive South In Years

     Cache   

    Gunmen opened fire on security forces and civilian volunteers at a checkpoint in Thailand's restive south on Tuesday night, killing at least 15 people in what is believed to be the deadliest single attack in the region in years.

    More than 7,000 people have been killed since a separatist rebellion started in southern Thailand in 2004, according to Deep South Watch, which monitors violence there. The region is predominantly Muslim and was annexed from Malaysia by Buddhist-majority Thailand more than 100 years ago.

    "This is likely the work of the insurgents," Col. Pramote Prom-in, a military regional security spokesman, told Reuters.

    The floor of the checkpoint was soaked in blood and the walls covered in bullet holes, as forensic police combed through the grisly debris Wednesday morning. Most of the dead were village defense force volunteers in Yala Province, as reporter Michael Sullivan told NPR from Chiang Rai, Thailand. At least five other people were wounded

    Security officials say the unidentified attackers tried to make it difficult for victims to escape and for rescue workers and security backup to get to the scene. "The insurgents scattered road spikes, set fire to tyres, felled a tree and bombed a power pole to obstruct pursuit," the Bangkok Post reported.

    About 10 gunmen sneaked through a rubber plantation in Yala Province to approach the checkpoint, according to the newspaper. During the attack, they stole "an assault rifle, two shotguns and five pistols from the checkpoint victims."

    Army spokesman Col. Kiattisak Neewong told The Associated Press that officials recovered bloody clothes at the scene, a sign that some of the attackers may have been wounded. Four of the people killed were women and one was a doctor, according to the spokesman.

    There were also reports of a second checkpoint attack on the same night, according to the Post, though nobody was reported to have been injured there.

    Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has vowed to better protect these volunteer forces at checkpoints, according to the AP, saying Tuesday night's attack could be an indication that rebels are planning to target them more frequently.

    "Normally the insurgents don't hit these village volunteers because they are considered civilians, unless they [cross] the line and become part of state apparatus," Don Pathan, an expert on southern Thailand, told Reuters.

    The rebels are seeking greater autonomy or even independence in southern Thailand. "The southern provinces are among the country's poorest and least developed," as Sullivan reported over a decade ago, soon after the violence started. "Many Muslims in the south say that's no accident. They accuse Bangkok of systematic neglect and discrimination."

    It's not clear which group carried out this attack, though the attack is similar in style to others carried out by the separatist group Barisan Revolusi Nasional, the BBC reported.

    Since 2013, the number of violent incidents per month in the south has slowly ratcheted downward, as has the number of dead or injured, according to data from Deep South Watch.

    In China, Kids Of Unwed Mothers May Be Barred From Public Health Care, Education

     Cache   

    When Liu, a 31-year-old Chinese insurance firm manager, learned she was pregnant in 2017, she resolved to keep her baby.

    She tried to hide the fact that she was unmarried and pregnant from her colleagues at the private insurance firm where she works in Shanghai. She paid her own hospital bills rather than rely on public insurance and risk exposing her secret to the hospital and her employer.

    Now the mother of a 22-month-old girl, Liu, who declined to share her full name for fear of social retribution, is facing a new challenge: accessing public health care and education for her child in Shanghai, where she has lived for nine years.

    "I just felt this was a small, living being, that I should keep her and that I had to work hard to create the conditions under which I could raise her," says Liu, a native of central China's Henan province, who moved to the east coast megacity of Shanghai for her job.

    Even though Liu's parents and close friends support her choice to become a mother, she says that most colleagues at her workplace do not know she has a child. "Employers would wonder, 'Is it just you who cares for the child? If so, then how will you focus on work?' " she says.

    Changing social mores and economics are affecting parenthood in China. Chinese women are increasingly financially independent. The marriage rate has dipped in recent years, and couples are divorcing more often than in the past. According to census data, women are postponing marriage and motherhood. And some are having children on their own.

    But the country's exhaustively detailed family code makes no mention of single parents. It is a topic so neglected that no official statistics are available on how many children are raised by single parents. This leaves many Chinese women stuck in a legal gray zone where they are unable to access basic public services for themselves and their children.

    "There is a blank space when it comes to single parents. There is a catchall clause [for punishing] 'any other situations that violate family planning,' " says Li Jun, a lawyer at Shanghai Dehehantong Law Firm, who is fighting a case in a Shanghai court to win maternity insurance coverage for unmarried women.

    Family laws of the land

    Neither the Population and Family Planning Law nor the Marriage Law contains language expressly allowing or forbidding single parenthood. Instead, the legislation presumes that anyone having children is married. It also excludes LGBT citizens. Same-sex couples cannot get married or register as a civil union in mainland China.

    The treatment of single mothers is left up to the discretion of local governments, which have adopted a wide variety of stances. Many provincial authorities have denied the children of single mothers hukou, or household registration, akin to a social security number allowing them to go to school and access services such as health care. Other provinces have required single mothers to pay a "social support" fee, usually several hundred dollars, as a penalty for violating family planning rules.

    "Local governments apply this differently to individual cases. ... First- and second-tier cities do not enforce such punitive policies anymore. But in more provincial places or places where family planning laws are not amended or executed properly, these instances still exist," says Li, the Shanghai lawyer.

    Liu, the single mother, was able to get hukou for her daughter in Henan province, where she's from. But the authorities in Shanghai, aware she has a child without a husband, docked several points from her residency permit application in the city because she had violated family planning guidelines.

    This permit is crucial — it would allow Liu and her child to access public services in Shanghai, rather than having to travel back to Henan. Without the permit, Liu's child will not be able to attend Shanghai public schools or access the city's public health insurance.

    Liu had waited years to accrue the necessary points to apply but now finds herself stymied from qualifying: "They consider me to have violated family planning regulations," she says. "This is the thing I'm most ashamed of."

    In spite of these limits, experts have warned that China needs to have more children to avoid a population decline in the future. The country faces a labor shortage as a result of its one-child policy, which authorities used to justify often brutal population control, including forced sterilization and abortions. The government ended the one-child rule in 2016 and now permits parents to have two children.

    However, China's ruling Communist Party has not relinquished control over family planning.

    "The Communist Party in one way or another has always been active in shaping families and encouraging a particular kind of family," notably the nuclear family, says Stuart Gietel-Basten, a professor and demography expert at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. "Under Mao, it was, 'You should have more children, right — China should grow.' And then in the '70s it's, 'OK, you should have much fewer children.' "

    More recently, party literature has said "having children is a family matter but also a national matter."

    Challenges of surrogacy

    Another group of single parents doesn't meet China's definition of family: women who have children through surrogacy, even though it is expensive — and illegal in China.

    Some Chinese women with financial means have tried to get around the ban by using services abroad.

    That's something Lee Qianmo, a 41-year-old skin care company executive, is considering.

    She became pregnant in 2018. But after a severe episode of depression, she made a painful decision to terminate the pregnancy, something that has left her conscience-stricken.

    Yet she does not rule out having a child in the future.

    "I haven't always thought about having a kid. It's only after seeing my niece growing up, I started thinking that I should leave that option open for myself in case I ever find it nice to have a child," she says.

    As an unmarried woman, Lee would have a difficult time qualifying for adoption.

    The alternatives also pose challenges. Although procedures such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization are permitted in China, most Chinese hospitals do not provide egg-freezing services. The 2001 law banning surrogacy also stipulates that assisted reproductive technology can be used by only those who are legally allowed to have children — heterosexual married couples.

    Going abroad for surrogacy is one solution. After finding a surrogate mother in a country where the procedure is legal, with the help of an agency, a Chinese woman can keep tabs on the surrogate throughout the pregnancy and visit for the birth. Then she can register as the legal guardian back in China.

    So far, Lee has spent tens of thousands of dollars on fertility treatments and gives herself a shot of hormones as part of her egg retrieval process after each 10-hour workday. She says she has not made up her mind about where to store her frozen eggs, given that the timing of the egg-harvesting procedure depends on the success of her hormone injections. But she hopes to freeze her eggs before year's end and might consider surrogacy in four years, when she turns 45, she says. Countries such as Thailand and Russia are at the top of Lee's list because surrogacy is legal there and those countries are close to China.

    Now fearful of the risks associated with childbirth, Lee says that without surrogacy, she may not ever want a child.

    "I choose surrogacy," she says, "but I support women who wish to give birth to their children. I find those women very admirable."

    Is it worth learning Thai anymore?

    No need if you are a monger hanging around Pattaya (and probably a few other tourist areas).Every need if you are in business here or spend a bit of time in the boonies. I am personally surprised how utterly bloody useless I am at Thai, after quite a few years here. In my working time I was in Central and South America a bit and Spanish was coming along. All these years in Thailand and I am still useless, and when I listen to Thais nearby, or even on TV, I can't make out anything. Have to face facts, it isn't going to happen.

     Cache   
    I'm not on about the basic level of ability, I believe that a basic understanding such as how to ask for food, directions, the numbers, money and simple stuff like "what do you like or can you do ??" are essential and polite given that we are a guest in their Country, but I'm on about the more the advanced level of Thai like future tenses, holding a conversation for more than a couple of minutes, stuff about the weather and how to install a proximity sensor to the hoist bearing on a ZPMC Post Panamax crane. English ability among the girls is definitely and very clearly improving to a point where all or many staff in Beer bars and GGB's have a good grasp. GG girls are even polishing up on their Hindi and Korean. Google is of course a blessing, I had a conversation using google translate with a Korean girl lost up at Terminal 21 last trip. I now know what "fuck off " is in Korean at least. Given that there are now hand held translation devices, akin to something you might see on Star Trek, and the tech is becoming even more advanced as time goes on, how long will it be before we can have a "Babel fish" like implant to do it all for us I wonder. Back to the current situation, as I said, a basic and polite understanding and ability is good to have, but as girls are beginning to learn more and at an earlier age, tech is making life easier for both parties and English is now (as far as I know) being taught in Primary schools in Thailand, is it really worth dusting Benjawan Poomsan Beckers book off anymore and playing the tapes?.

Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

    In the second half of the book, Vegetable And Fruit Carving In Thai Food, traditional Thai recipes are artfully presented in more elaborate carved vessels, containers, bowls and platters (see list of recipes and carvings below). Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    All-in-all, this is a sizable compendium of the art of fruit and vegetable carving, filled with stunning pictures and detailed instructions. Written by one of the most respected Thai fruit carving artists in Thailand today, it is as elegant as it is useful, being an enduring favorite and a real treasure for any fruit carving enthusiast.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.

    Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.

    “This didn’t used to be coffee,” says Phanpaiboon (Nud) Panudcha, a tour guide for Exotic Voyages, gesturing toward an expanse of neatly plotted land. “This used to be all opium fields. That’s why they call it the Golden Triangle: Gold was exchanged for opium, and people got addicted. It was very sad,” she says. Southeast Asia’s Golden Triangle spans the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar.

    徴用問題 国会議長の寄付金支給案に「憤り禁じ得ない」=韓国支援団体
    2019.11.06 16:39
    https://jp.yna.co.kr/view/AJP20191106002900882?section=japan-relationship/index
     訪日中の韓国の文喜相(ムン・ヒサン)国会議長が強制徴用被害者への賠償問題を巡って、両国の企業と国民から寄付を募り、被害者に支給する案を提案したことについて、韓国支援団体「勤労挺身隊ハルモニ(おばあさん)とともにする市民の集まり」は6日に南西部・光州で記者会見を開き、「民意を代弁する国会議長の言葉なのか耳を疑った」として、「驚愕(きょうがく)と憤りを禁じ得ない」と批判した。

     

    団体は「問題解決のため、74年間苦しみの中で戦ってきた被害者の意見に一度でも耳を傾けていればこのような提案はできない」として、「被害者は反人道的な違法行為に対する謝罪と賠償を要求しているのであり、わずかなお金を受け取るため意地を張っているわけではない」と主張。

     

    「(文氏の提案は)お金され渡せば良いと思う低級で浅はかな歴史認識」と非難した。

     

     2015年末に旧日本軍の慰安婦問題を巡り、日本政府の謝罪がないまま10億円を受け取り、強い非難を受けた例を取り上げ、「歴史的な責任を認め、それに基づいた謝罪が含まれていない方法はいかなるものも正しい解決策にならない」と強調し、「加害者である日本政府、戦犯企業の事実認定と謝罪が先行しなければならない」と主張した。

    日本は無関係


    本音が出たな。何が何でも日本に悪いことをしたと認めさせたいみたいだな。無理だから。


    いや、本音の本音は金目でしょ。
     日本の謝罪は永久にそれを受けとるためのツールでしかない。


    まあもともと日本に認めさせて賠償を勝ち取るのが目的だからな
     わずかなお金を受け取るために意地を張ってるのではなく、永遠に多額の賠償金をもらうために頑張ってるのだからw


    もう両国から叩かれてズタボロニダ


    つまり、もっと金よこせってこと?


    そうだよ


    だね。
    んで、「カネよこせ。 でもいくら貰っても満足しないけど」ってことだわなw


    とにかく日本が悪い、という結論を確定させるのが一番。あとはした金のためにやっているわけではない、
    の一言も
    →金が目的じゃない
    →もっと大金が目的だ

     のどちらにも読むことが可能だからね。まああいつらの日ごろの言動を見るに後者なのは明らかだけど。


    そっちで勝手にやりあってろアホ


    ヒサンが悲惨ニダ


    こんなはした金(10億)じゃなくもっとお金が欲しいニダー!!!!


    >戦犯企業の事実認定と謝罪が先行しなければならない」と主張した。

     (´・ω・`)ノ はやくウチも戦犯企業認定してくれよ。来年は創業100年なんだよ


    法律行為として済んだ話、ましてや国家同士の。いつまで子供みたいな駄々コネしてんの


    無論、死ぬまで


    戦犯って18世紀以降半島と戦争したことないんだけどな


    >加害者である日本政府、戦犯企業の事実認定と謝罪が先行しなければならない
     そんな事実なんてないからなんとしても事実認定させて賠償金をせしめたいんだよね


    全くめんどくさいクズでもではあるが
    韓国が破綻するまではその調子で続けよ


    単なる強請タカリだと身内にバラされたわけですからねえ。
     金が全てだ、と。
    これで日本はもう本当に何もしなくて良くなりました。


    やっぱりな、こうなると思った
    慰安婦のときと同じ
    俺でもわかることがなぜこいつにはわからなかったのか


    なんで国内で案を纏めないで思いつきで喋るかね?('A`)

    日本の反発が増すどころか韓国国内でもdgdgじゃねーか。


    これで奴が国会議長のままでいるなら
    韓国の国民はそれを認めたって事になるのかな。


    歴史が動くというこの時に
     なんでこんなに役者が矮小なんだろう


    立法府の長が、思いつきで外交問題に口だすなよ('A`)
    余計に混乱するだけやぞw


    国民感情優先主義なんてやってるから外交まで国民感情に支配されてしまった。
     韓国は絶対にこうなると思ってたよ。何のために政府があるのか。


    慰安婦の金を分けてやるなんてあるわけないじゃん
    唯一の被害者の座を脅かすライバルなんだろ徴用工は


    すげーよな
    仮にムンと合意したってまた覆されるのが最初からわかっている
     もうこれで最後ってのはない
     これまでの事で納得しない=韓国とは新しい約束できないという論理が成り立つから


    どうぞ死ぬまで悔しがってくださいw


    韓国既に詰んでるのに更に傷口を自ら広げ続けるスタイルスコ


    結論日本が悪いしか出てこない だから早く現金化すればいいだけなんだが
    何のために差し押さえしたんだこいつらは


    反日で洗脳した民衆の反日が強すぎてコントロールできてないの笑うわ


    いいね
    現実が見えてない感じが最高だね
     これで日韓断交から韓国が貧困国へ落ちたらコイツ等どうなるか楽しみなんだけどな
    残念な事にアメリカが居る限り何処かで手打ちさせられるだろうからなぁ


    どーでもいいけど日本がゴネて支払いを先延ばしするなら延滞利息年率45%(複利)がかかってくるからな
     すでに1年引き伸ばしてるので一人当たり1450万円になってる
    来年末には2100万


    それならとっとと差し押さえ資産を現金化しないと!wwwww


    引き延ばしてるのは韓国政府なので延滞利息もそちらへどうぞw


    この期に及んで日韓GSOMIAの破棄が日本の不利益になると思える頭の持ち主って…。


    謝罪謝罪ってうるせーくせに
    自分達は絶対に謝罪しないのな


    これは、、、万が一韓国の案にのっても、次の政権で
    前政権が勝手にやったからやっぱやめます
     ってなるの見えちゃってるやん。
    いやー万が一が消えてよかった。


    理由はなんでもいいのよ
     たかりたいだけ


    対外的には四面楚歌、八方塞がりで、国内的には全て対立

     韓国はもう終わってないか、このままずるずると分裂するだろ


    徹底した反日愚民教育に加え、民衆は絶対みたいな歪んだ民主主義があるから何やっても反日以外に収拾付かんのよね
    軍事政権に立ち返れば、政府の意で国の舵取りできるようになるかも知れんけど


    はい、韓国国民情緒法違反でヒサンは更迭


    嘘つけw謝ったら非を認めたから賠償ニダ!って金の無心するくせによw

    【韓国メディア】国賓級を招待しておきながら「安全上の理由で外出は控えて」とムンヒサン議長を愚弄した日本
    2019.11.05 04:40
    https://www.hankookilbo.com/News/Read/201911041848333111
    「文議長様が来られたら、できるだけホテルの外には出ない方が良いです。」

     

    ムン・ヒサン国会議長の日本訪問が決定された今年10月頃、日本側は私たちの実務者にこのような意見を伝えたという。

     

    4日、東京で開かれる主要20カ国(G20)議会首脳会議出席日程を調整している時だった。

     

    「日本軍慰安婦被害者問題を解決するには日王が謝らなければならない」と今年初めムン議長の発言に日本国民が「怒」ったので特に気を付けなければならない、というのが日本側の趣旨だった。

     

    ムン議長を招待した日本側は怒った右翼勢力のために「万が一の状況」が発生する可能性を憂慮したようだ。

     

    日本韓国人社会でもムン議長を狙った嫌韓デモが起きるか緊張したという。

     

    これに対しムン議長が日本に留まる間、外食の日程を最小化し、移動時の警護車両も減らすという一種の「安全規則遵守」が両国協議を経て準備された。

     

    相手国の国家次席序列2位を招待しておきながら「目につくな」という趣旨の注文をしたことは外交的に異例だ。

     

    しかし、ムン議長が日本へ向かう直前、日本が見せた態度は安全規則遵守の「本当の意図」が何か疑問を抱かせた。

     

    日本産経新聞は先月31日、「ムン議長が(慰安婦)発言を撤回しなければ会談に応じない」という山東昭子日本参議院議長の発言を報道した。

     

    ムン議長が書簡を通じて謝罪の意を伝えようとしたが、日本が返送したという報道もあった。

     

    ムン議長は今月3日から四日間、日本に留まって主要人物と会い、両国関係改善の糸口を見つけようとしたが、日本の人々は突然会わないと背を向けた。

     

    日本が国賓級のお客さんを「冷遇」したというおかしな状況が演出されたのだ。

     

    私たちの政治家たちが否定的な国内世論にもかかわらず、日本に行ったのは「今の状況をこれ以上放置してはならない」という政治・外交的大義を前面に出したためだ。

     

    韓半島と東北アジアの平和のために関係を戻そうとする努力だった。

     

    しかし日本はどうだったか。

     

    ムン議長をはじめとする韓国政治家たちをむやみに敵視し「韓国たたき」で右翼勢力の歓心を買おうとしたのでないか。

     

    そのような疑いを杞憂と片付けるには日本がムン議長に見せた態度が極端に冷たかった。

     

    日本はこれ以上右翼勢力を利用した自国の政治だけに埋没していてはいけない。

     

    両国は離そうとしても離せない関係という点を再確認し、急いで関係回復に出なければならない。

     

    今の状況が続けば、日本も耐え難い打撃を受けることになるだろう。

    =============

     

    『国賓級を招待しておきながら「安全上の理由で外出は控えて」とムンヒサン議長を愚弄』

     

    韓国、国賓級って、自分でいうなよ。

     

    ヒサンの自業自得な発言で、危険にしておいて、気遣ってあげたら「愚弄」ですか。

     

     

    「日本の人々は突然会わないと背を向けた」

     

    突然じゃないだろ。

     

    とっくの昔から、皆、嫌がってますわ。

     

    会ってくれたのは、馬鹿な政治家と、ヒサンに会っても問題なさそうな人だけでしょ?

     

     

    『国賓級のお客さんを「冷遇」した』

     

    あははー、何処までも面倒くさい国だね。

     

    国賓級のお客さんって、文ヒサンなんてのは招かれざる客ですわ

     

    G20だから、仕方なく型通りに、招待状出しただけです。

     

     

    G20でなけりゃ、招待なんかするわけがない。

     

    そもそも、辞退しない文ヒサンが常識はずれで、失礼な奴なんだわ。

     

    何で副議長を、送り込まなかったんだ?

     

     

    「韓半島と東北アジアの平和のために」

     

    何言ってるかねえ。

     

    嘘ついて皆を騙して、金が欲しいだけだろ?

     

    んで、平和の為にって時は、東北アジアですか。

     

    要らんわ。

     

     

    「今の状況が続けば、日本も耐え難い打撃」

     

    そりゃ、韓国人の思い込み。

     

    日本は久しぶりに、韓国と縁を切ろうとしてるんです。

     

    好い加減に、日本の方を向くのをヤメレ。

     

     

    手首切りブスは、もう、うんざりですわ。

     

    韓国と手をキレれば、日本の未来は明るいのです

     

    勿論日本国内の、朝鮮人は、全部追い返すことです。

    表に出たら本当に危ない。日本側の配慮に感謝しろ! 日本人を甘くみてんじゃねーよ!


    招きたくて招いたわけじゃないだろ
    さっさと帰れ
    馬鹿野郎
    が日本国民の総意


    上皇陛下を侮辱したうえに日本国民に盗人猛々しいとのたまう馬鹿野郎に対して、
    なぜ国賓級のもてなししなきゃならないんだろうな?


    世界中のどの国もそんな風には思っちゃいないところで『国賓』を自称しちゃうって相当な恥さらしだな。
    まぁ恥って概念ない国だから問題もねーんだろうが。
    日本じゃなけりゃ普通に入国拒否問題なんだが


    G20に出席するだけで国賓級とかほざいてるから参加国からハブられてG19+1とか笑われるんだろ…


    国賓じゃないからこの扱いなんだろ。
    国賓級だと思ってる事が間違ってたとなぜ気づかない


    韓国は政治家もバカならマスメディアもバカなのか?
    国賓は国家元首が対象だわ。韓国なら同じバカのムン大統領だわ。それに陛下に拝謁することになる。
    ま、ムン議長が陛下に土下座して謝罪する為に会いたいというなら話は別だがな。


    もう嫌韓は右翼の特権ではなく日本人の常識になってるな


    自分を国賓といいながら目も合わさず自分から挨拶も交わさなかったらしいが?招かれた立場でありながらそんな事もしなかったのかこいつ
    やっぱ鮮人と対等の立場で対話なんて無理だわ

    台風24号、インドシナ半島へ

     Cache   

    ベトナム南部に向かってるので、またタイ東部に雨を降らせるかもね。

     

    フィリピンの西で発生して、まだ発達中です。

    台風24号発生 台湾への影響はなし=気象局
    2019年11月6日 14時54分
    https://news.livedoor.com/article/detail/17340927/
     5日午後8時、南シナ海で軽度台風(台湾基準)台風24号が発生した。

     

    6日午前8時現在、台湾本島最南端ガランピ(鵝鑾鼻)の南南西約1070キロの海上に停滞している。

     

    中央気象局によると、台風は今後、ベトナム方面に進み、台湾には直接影響しないと予想される。

     

    6日の台湾本島は、北東の風の影響が若干弱まり、北部の海岸沿いや一部の山地、北東部・宜蘭で雨がちになるほかは、広い範囲でおおむね晴れ。

     

    日中の予想最高気温は北部や北東部、東部・花蓮で24~27度、中部や南部、東部・台東で29~31度。

     

    一方、各地の予想最低気温は18~23度。

     

    気象局は、一日の寒暖差が大きい地域に注意を呼び掛けている。

    =============

     

     

    台湾気象台の発表なので、インドシナ半島への影響は明らかじゃないけど。

     

    来るのは間違いなくベトナム・ホーチミンや、カンボジアです。

     

    上陸は11日ですね。

     


    この台風で、バンコクの大気汚染が吹き飛ばされると良いのだが。

     

    洪水になると辛いねえ。

     

    タイへの影響は12日以降です

    バンコクで大気汚染悪化
    2019年11月5日(火) 08時11分(タイ時間)
    http://www.newsclip.be/article/2019/11/05/41150.html
     タイ天然資源環境省公害管理局によると、5日午前8時点のバンコク都内の空気質指数(AQI)はディンデン区で160、地下鉄サムヤーン駅前で129など複数の地点で「健康への悪影響が始まる」とされる100を上回った。
    =============

     

    「健康への悪影響が始まる」とされる100」

     

    こんな、甘いことを言ってると駄目だよね。

     

    日本では基準が35でしょ?

     

    100は基準点じゃないです。

     

    こんなこと言ってると、100以下ならいいやってなりそうです。

     

     

    「5日午前8時点・・・ディンデン区」

     

    ディンデーンは、ジジイの活動地域なので、こまるんだが。

     

    場所は、ラマ9とラチャダーの交差点だと思う。

     

    朝8時なら、ラッシュアワーですから、車一杯です。

     

    だってあそこ、信号は最低でも4分待ちですから。

    ヘイトスピーチは犯罪だなんて言うから、ヘイトクライムを呼び寄せるんですって。

    それだけ日本人を、怒らせたって事です。

     

    でも相手は、ホントに日本人なのか?

     

     

    こういうこと、今後も、頻発するんじゃないかな。

     

    今回は、いきなり殴られただけで済んでるけど。

     

    刺されたり、切られたりって事も想定したほうが良いと思う。

     

     

    段々韓国人と、韓国人を擁護する、反日日本人は気を付けないといけなくなるのかもね。

     

    日本人は、一度キレると、何処まで行くか判らんから。

     

    んー、キレ易い、ベトナム人かもしれないじゃないの。

    東京で働く韓国人の友人が、いま泣きながら電話してきた。


    「韓国語で話しながら歩いていたら、いきなり殴られました」って。


    「私は日本が好きなのに、日本人は私をなぜ嫌いなの」と話をされて、胸がはり裂ける思いだ。


    差別も暴力も許さない、絶対!

     
    23:03 - 2019年11月4日
    =============

     

    「私は日本が好きなのに」

     

    いやいや、韓国人を憎み始めた日本人に、そんなのは通用しませんて。

     

    むしろ目について余計、ヘイトクライムの対象になり易いですって。

     

    これからは、日本が好きなら韓国に帰ることですって。

     

     

    「差別も暴力も許さない、絶対!」

     

    こういうことを言ってる人が、日本人に、韓国人への憎悪を、植え付けてきたんですって。

     

    日本を、嫌いであろうが好きであろうが、韓国人に変わりはないんです。

     

    もう一つ、これは、韓国人であることは関係なく、殴られたのかもしれないね。

     

     

    なので、いきなり「差別」という話に持って行く前に、なぜ殴ったのか、捕まえてみるまでは判らんでしょ。

     

    いきなり差別ということで、余計に、日本人の「憎韓」を助長するんじゃないかと。

     

     

    ネット民は、もう少し冷静です。


    ーーーーーーーーーーーーーー
    日本人が殴ったの?
    傷害事件だから、まずは警察に届けるべきじゃない?
    犯人が確定してないのに差別だどうのこうのは、貴方の頭がおかしいとしか思えないけど?


    そろそろ日本も本格的に危険なレベルになってきましたね。


    それは・・
    差別も何も・・ “通り魔” ですよ それは
    絶対に許される行為ではありません
    国籍など関係ない・・
    出自によって区別される事でもありません
    生きとし生けるもの全てにあってはならない行為です


    差別も暴力も絶対に許されないことですが
    韓国人の方が「韓国人だから殴られた」という根拠がないならもう少し慎重になるべきかと思います。
    通り魔の可能性もありますし


    すぐさま警察行ってください。そしてこれを機にヘイトクライム絶対許さない法を作ってください。泣きながら電話かけてきた友人に対する日本の政治家としてのあなたの、そして私らの義務です。


    マッチポンプ?


    日本人に殴られたんですか?東京にはいろんな人種がいますので、誤解を招くような書き方やめてください。


    お手本のようなニッポンヘイト作り話


    これはヘイトクライムですね。暴行なんで警察に届け出でることを勧めてあげてください。


    本当に許せん。
    ちゃんとけいさつにつうほうしたんでしょうか?
    目撃者や警備カメラを調べるべきですね。


    で、
    勿論ソウルで日本女性が暴力を振るわれた時も
    怒りのTwitterはあげたんですよね?


    そんなこと言ってないで、すぐ警察へ被害届出させて犯人逮捕しないとダメだろう、防犯カメラで多分追えるはずだよ。


    殴ったのは本当に日本人なのか?
    殴られたのは韓国人だからなのか?
    今の時点では証拠もないのに適当な事を言わない方がいい。


    韓国語を話していたから殴られたのか?
    殴った加害者は、日本人なのか?
     

    暴力反対は賛成。
    けれど、差別が原因だと、証拠もなく、日本人から嫌われているから殴られたと考えることを被害妄想と言う。


    ホントかよ。
    友達に泣きつく前に警察に行けよ。
    事件だろーが


    それって東京のどこでおきた事件ですか?
    完全に犯罪ですよね
    当然警察に被害届出してますよね
    ちゃんと捜査されてるんですか?
    ニュースになってもいいと思うのですが
    何処の警察署か教えて下さい。


    先日もデマを拡散した市議が辞職に追い込まれたが、県議レベルでもこう言った噂話程度のものを拡散していいのか⁉️

    全ては伝聞。
    加えて、殴られた程度では、暴行罪。
    傷害罪には該当しない場合が多い。

    それも、当事者の性別もないなんて、
    可笑しくない⁉️


    警察に行かないんですか?
    防犯カメラも普及してるし今どきすぐ捕まりますよ


    警察ではなく県議会員に電話する時点で草不可避
     日本の有権者はしっかりしろよ
    投票に行かないから朝鮮人が幅を効かせるのだ


    事実かどうか確認もせず本人の証言だけで暴力反対とか、慰安婦の件と同じだな。
     投稿する前に警察に被害届を出すように本人に助言すべきだろ。それとも本人が警察に行けない理由でもあるのか?


    立憲を名乗りながら憲法審議を拒否する詐欺政党!

    また、根拠を示さない伝聞方式の捏造か!


    日本人に殴られたの?
    これだけでは解らないのに
     ヘイトだと決めつけるのは出来ない


    日本女性がソウルでボコボコにされた事件には立憲は何も言わなかった。


    知らない人間に暴行されて即その理由が韓国語での会話だと理解した上に
    警察よりも先に議員に電話したって設定?


    うん、あんたがやるべきなのはつぶやく事じゃなくて警察に通報するアドバイスをしてやる事
    それともあんたも殴られた奴も警察に関わると都合の悪いことでもあるの?


    なぜに即日本人が暴行者であり韓国人だったからと決めつけるんだろ
     それこ先入観思い込みで日本人を心の中で差別してるって証拠じゃないの?
     韓国語関係なく、ヤバい奴にガン飛ばしたなんてことじゃないの?

    他地域へ吸収されない日本旅行需要、韓国旅行会社の業績が急激に悪化
    2019/11/05 11:00
    http://www.chosunonline.com/site/data/html_dir/2019/11/05/2019110580073.html
      日本による経済報復を受け、韓国で「日本旅行ボイコット運動」が3カ月以上続いている。

     

    大手旅行会社ハナツアーの先月の日本旅行需要は前年同月を82.3%下回った。

     

    減少幅は8月(76.9%減)、9月(75.4%減)よりも拡大した。

     

    時間がたっても回復の兆しがなかなか見えない。

     

    モドゥツアーの日本商品の販売も先月は91.9%落ち込んだ。

     

     単純に日本への旅行客が減少したのにとどまらず、日本への旅行需要が他地域に吸収されることもなく、旅行会社の業績が急激に悪化している。

     

    ハナツアーとモドゥツアーは7-9月期に営業損益が赤字を記録した。

     

    証券業界からは「日本問題が続き、旅行会社の業績改善はどんどん難しくなってきている」とのリポートが相次いでいる。

     

    国内の大手旅行会社は長期休暇制度である「安息年」や希望退職を受け付けるなど非常経営態勢に突入した。

     

    ある旅行会社関係者は「通貨危機、2008年の世界的な金融危機に続き、3番目の危機が訪れた」と語った。

     

    ■日本から離れた旅行需要が消失

     

     先月のハナツアーの海外旅行需要は前年同期比で33.2%減少した。

     

    日本への旅行者が激減したことが最大の理由だった。

     

    モドゥツアーの場合、一時は日本商品の取り扱いが全体の30%に達したが、先月はわずか3.4%にすぎなかった。

     

     旅行会社をもっと不安にさせているのは、日本から離れた需要が他地域に吸収されていないことだ。

     

    ハナツアーの中国(香港含む)への先月の旅行客は前年同期比30.6%減少した。

     

    米州(2.7%減)、欧州(10.9%減)、南太平洋(15.9%減)なども同様だ。

     

    需要が増加したのは東南アジア(1.2%増)だけだった。

     

    業界関係者は「日本旅行の代替旅行先はないという業界内での話が証明された。

     

    飛行時間が短く、口に合う食べ物、快適な環境があることを理由に日本を選ぶ旅行客は、現在のムードのせいで旅行を断念しても、他地域への旅行には出掛けない」と話した。

     

    別の関係者は「景気が活力を失い、旅行業界では昨年から危機感が高まっているが、日本旅行ボイコット運動で最悪の状況を迎えた」と指摘した。

     

    ■「安息年」や希望退職を募集する旅行業界

     

     旅行会社は非常経営体制に突入した。

     

    旅行会社関係者は「日本の東日本大地震や終末高高度防衛ミサイル(THAAD)配備に対する中国の報復よりも状況を厳しくとらえている」と述べた。

     

    実際にハナツアーは先月末、1年以上の在職者を対象に最長1年間の安息年の申請受付を開始した。

     

    モドゥツアーも先月から40歳以上で職責がない社員を対象として、希望退職を受け付けている。

     

    業界関係者は「ハナツアーとモドゥツアーの事情はまだましな方だ。

     

    中小旅行会社は骨身を削る人員削減を実施しており、一部の零細業者は廃業している状況だ」と説明した。

     

     旅行業界では低下した海外旅行心理が年内は回復しないとみている。

     

    ハナツアーによると、11月1日現在、11月の海外旅行需要は前年比27.6%、12月は14.2%減少を示している。

     

    DB金融投資は4日、「今後の日本への旅行需要が回復するかどうかが、ハナツアーの業績や株価のトリガーになると」予想した。

     

     旅行会社は危機脱出先として、既存地域中心の旅行商品から脱皮し、テーマ中心商品、高級商品など多様化を図っている。

     

    しかし、旅行会社のそうした対策も長期的には有効かもしれないが、当面の危機脱出には力不足であることを熟知している。

     

     業界関係者は「一日も早く日本問題が解決するか、日本旅行を好む層に他の地域が代わりの旅行先として認識されるように、航空券価格など旅行費用が下がることが必要だ」とする一方、韓日関係が引き続きこう着する中、日本に就航していた航空各社がすぐに他地域への乗り入れを増やすこともできないため、旅行会社の苦悩はしばらく続くとみられる。

    =============

     

     

    「日本による経済報復・・・・日本旅行ボイコット運動が3カ月以上」

     

    経済報復なんて言ってるうちは、日本ボイコットはまだまだ続くと思うよ。

     

    是非続けてもらいたいし、観光客は100%来ないでもらいたい。

     

    あ、ビジネス客も要りませんし、勿論政治家なんかも不要です。

     

     

    「ハナツアーの先月の日本旅行需要は前年同月を82.3%下回った」
    「8月(76.9%減)、9月(75.4%減)よりも拡大」

     

    良かったじゃん。

     

    100%目指して、もっと頑張れ。

     

    そもそも、日本行きのツアーの企画なんか、止めろって事ですわ。

     

     

    「日本への旅行需要が他地域に吸収されることもなく」

     

    ボイコット日本じゃなくて、韓国の経済や景気がダメダメになってるって事じゃないの?

     

    強いて言えば、ボイコット日本なんか、やってる場合じゃないと思うんだよね。

     

    国民の殆どが、火病を発症してるので、経済の方に、目が向いてないのかもしれないが。

     

     

    「ハナツアーの海外旅行需要は前年同期比で33.2%減」

     

    「日本へ行く客が」じゃなくて、韓国の景気が酷い状態だって事に気付けよ。

     

    韓国の景気の落ち込みが酷いんであって、日本行きが減って酷いんじゃないんだってば。

     

    だって近場なら、中国や台湾に行くことだってできるんだから。

     

     

    日本行きの企画は、全てゴミ箱に捨ててください。

     

    んでツアーでない個人旅行客も日本行きは止めさせなさいよ。

     

    がははー

    日本は何もしていない


    ざまあw


    大丈夫大丈夫もっと反日やっとけ


    日本はチョンが来なくなったおかげで世界中から観光客が増えて今も伸びてるんだよなあw


    すぐ北の国に行けばいいじゃん。それで解決。


    マスコミ曰く「反日は一部の韓国人だけ」という話だったけど、俺の目には「韓国総ボイコット」に見えるんだけど


    ゼロになるまで続けんかい


    韓国人の旅行先が
    日本を選べなくなって面白いよなw


    需要ないんだからビザ復活よろしく


    朝日や共同が記事にしない話w


    二度と来んなよマジで
    町からもハングル撤去してほしいわ


    良い流れだ
    このまま断交まで行こうず


    旅行会社が潰れれば日本に来る韓国人がさらに減るな
    早く潰れてしまえ


    なんだか最近、空気がきれいだわ。


    ただの自爆じゃないか


    クソ愛媛県「おい、職員ども。お前ら韓国行きの飛行機乗れや、ノルマやぞ」

     

    元々ごく普通の一般人が年に3度も4度も海外旅行してたのがおかしいんだよ
    ヨーロッパみたいに地続きならともかく
    普通の生活に戻れて良かったね。もう借金して海外旅行へ行かなくてもいいんだよ


    旅行会社なんてうたってるけど、実態は「渡し屋」なんじゃないの?


    断言する。明洞の街はマヂで臭い。目にくる。


    超絶解り易い嘘情報ですね
    別に日本へ、ではなくて北朝鮮にでも行けばイイんじゃないですか?


    客単価も低くて、迷惑行為も多いし、日本国内のハングル撤去運動しなきゃ・・・
    (韓国人に関わりたくないから勝手に自分で調べろって意味で設置している団体も多いんだろうけど)
     
    国内の長期旅行者の方はどう見てもマイナスなので強制的にお帰り願いたいが


    めちゃくちゃ難癖つけて絡んでくるくせに何もせんでも勝手に自滅とか
    めんどくせえ敵なのか楽な敵なのかはっきりせえや


    単に文政権の失策で、庶民には旅行する金も無くなっただけでしょう。
    反日ボイコットという事にしておけばプライドも保てるし、文への責任追及も回避できる、という所でしょうか。

    山東参院議長を批判 韓国議長への冷遇は「外交的欠礼」=韓日議連会長
    2019.11.05 14:38
    https://jp.yna.co.kr/view/AJP20191105002100882
     韓日議員連盟の姜昌一(カン・チャンイル)会長(与党・共に民主党)は5日、ラジオ番組に出演し、山東昭子参院議長が東京で開かれた20カ国・地域(G20)国会議長会議で韓国の文喜相(ムン・ヒサン)国会議長にあいさつもしないなど冷ややかな態度を示したことについて、「そうしてはいけない。なぜそうしたのか分からない」と述べ、「外交的欠礼」と批判した。

     

    山東氏は旧日本軍の慰安婦問題は日本の天皇の謝罪で解決するとした文氏の2月の発言を問題視し、個別会談に応じない姿勢を示していた。

     

     文氏が現地で記者団に対し、強制徴用問題で韓国と日本の企業から寄付を募り、被害者に支給する内容の法案を作ったと言及したことに関しては、「踏み込んだ議論があったわけではない。

     

    個人的に考えている一つのアイデアではないか」と述べた。

     

     23日に失効する日本との軍事情報包括保護協定(GSOMIA)については、「日本が(輸出管理の優遇対象国の)ホワイト国から韓国を除外し、安全保障上の友好国ではないとした」と指摘し、「(だから)軍事情報を提供できないのではないか」と言及。

     

    「日本はホワイト国からの除外を撤回し、われわれは(GSOMIAの)延長を同時に行う。

     

    強制徴用問題は交渉テーブルで話し合う」として、「この三つ(の問題)をまとめて解決しなければならない」と強調した。

    =============

     

    『韓国議長への冷遇は「外交的欠礼」』

     

    会議に、椅子を用意してもらっただけでも、ありがたいと思え。

     

    文ヒサンを、日本国民は決して許してないから。

     

    うちの奥さんでさえ、「文ひさんは、良くも日本に来たもんだねえ」って呆れてます。

     

     

    「韓日議員連盟の姜昌一会長・・・山東昭子参院議長・・・冷ややかな態度・・・なぜそうしたのか分からない」

     

    んで、その文ヒサンに、山東君が冷たかった?

     

    いやはや、こいつはどんだけ馬鹿なんですか?

     

    ニコニコしたら、山東君迄が国賊になっちまいますわ。

     

    ほら、ここまで言えば、日韓議員連盟の河村とか額賀は、ほぼ国賊だって、皆気付きますわ。

     

     

    「日本はホワイト国からの除外を撤回し、われわれは(GSOMIAの)延長を同時に行う」

     

    ここはもう、韓国に何度も言っても駄目なんだろうけど、韓国以外の国に発信すべきでしょうな。

     

    テロ支援国家に横流ししてる韓国を、ホワイト国から除外しないと、日本が他の国で、ホワイト国から除外されてしまうって事。

     

    GSOMIAの延長は、既に出来ないのが確定してるって事。

     

    韓国に行っても判らんから、他の国に言うべきでしょうな。

    こいつらの狼狽ぶりを見る度に思うんだが日本の対応が効きまくってんじゃねえか
    やはり中国のしつけ方は正しかったんだなあ


    何も制裁してないんだけどな


    山東さん良いね


    国と国との約束を守れない奴が礼儀を口にするのは1000年ばかり早いんじゃないですかねぇ


    じゃあ日本に来るなよ


    三つとも日本にメリットは何もないだろアホかw

    絶対友好とかむりじゃん


    要注意
    彼は、韓国の議員です。日本の議員と早とちりする馬鹿が出ません様に。


    何故そうしたか分からないから今の状態なんだぞ


    韓国って自分がされて嫌な事を平気で日本にするよな
    そんな相手と仲良くなんて出来るわけない


    えっ、おまエラの非礼無礼の積み重ねが最大の要因だぞ?
    其れすらも理解できないのですか、君達はw


    先に重大な外交的欠礼をやらかした朝鮮土人が何を言うのだ
     
    そんな態度では我々日本人は、おまエラ朝鮮土人を許してはやらぬぞ
     
    身の程を弁えよ
     
    愚かな朝鮮土人よ


    100%自分の都合に合わせて動けと押し付けるのは、話し合いじゃないんだがな。
    それすら理解できない。


    国家間の約束すらも守らないくせに、
    言える立場か?ボケ!


    今までアメリカ民主党が日本に負荷をかけるためにおまエラを利用していただけ

    共和党政権の間は殴られ続けるんだよ、嘘つき土人


    冷遇?当たり前じゃ!謝罪発言撤回しないで、己らの仕打ち?だけを問題にするのか?いつもの被害者かい?w


    礼と言うのはそれがわかる相手に尽くすものだ
    ゴキブリ相手に礼なんてキチガイ沙汰でしかない


    条約破りの朝鮮人が外交を語るなw


    なぜそうしたか分からない?
    だから朝鮮人には物事の道理が解らんって言われるんや。
    不思議な脳ミソしてるぞ!
    いやマジで。

    安倍さんに飯も用意せず一人飯させてホルホルしてた民族がいるらしい

    悪意を向けたら悪意がかえってくる
    それだけのこと


    ホワイト除外の時日本の役所が根気よく5時間かけて説明してもダメだったからね
    頭がとてつもなく悪いんだよ顔も悪いけどさあ


    約束も守れないくせに、外交を語るとかチャンチャラおかしいわ。天皇陛下に謝罪を要求した時点で、韓国の命運は尽きてしまったんだよ。今回しかり、7年前しかりね。


    こんな屑に性懲りもなく「日韓友好」「日本から歩み寄れ」と寝言を抜かすク○マスコミとカ○議員とア○知識人
    南鮮よりこいつらの方が日本の癌だとはっきりわかんだね


    いやはや呆れたもんだ 自分たちの欠礼はなんとも思ってないのかな? 
    あと「三つをまとめて解決しなければならない」って・・
     
    要するに以前の嫌がらせし放題の韓国に戻せってことか、アホか?


    日本側の額賀や河村が甘い対応をするからつけ上がるんだよ。本当に邪魔な団体だよ。

    冷たい菅官房長官「韓国の発表は韓国に聞いていただきたい。日本の立場に変わりない」
    2019.11.05 12:04
    https://s.japanese.joins.com/JArticle/259271 
    菅義偉官房長官は5日午前、定例ブリーフィングで前日タイ・バンコクでの韓日首脳歓談について「安倍晋三首相は日本の原則的な立場を文在寅(ムン・ジェイン)大統領にしっかりと伝達した」として「(その間の)一貫した立場に基づき、韓国側に賢明な対応を求めていく考えに変わりはない」と5日、述べた。

     

    菅長官のこの日の韓日関係に関連したブリーフィングは前日歓談が終わった後、西村明宏官房副長官が行ったブリーフィングと全く変わらなかった。

     

    「文大統領が高官級協議を提案し、安倍首相も『あらゆる可能な方法を通じて懸案の解決案を模索するよう努力しよう』と述べた」

     

    という韓国側の発表に対して菅長官は

     

    「首脳ら二人間の対話について詳細なコメントは控えたい」

     

    としながらも

     

    「安倍首相は従来話してきた通りに外交当局間の協議を通じて懸案を解決する旨と応じた」

     

    と話した。

     

    韓国政府が発表した安倍首相のコメントを最後まで確認しなかったものだ。

     

    「雰囲気が友好的だった」

    「両国関係の重要性を確認した」

     

    という韓国側の発表に対する見解を明らかにしてほしいという質問もあった。

     

    「韓日両側のブリーフィングが違う」

     

    という質問に菅長官は

     

    「韓国側の発表内容にコメントしない」
    「韓国側の発表は韓国側に聞いていただきたい」

     

    と回答を避けた。

     

    やはり前日、西村副長官の発表を同様に繰り返したものだ。

     

    首脳間歓談が韓日軍事情報包括保護協定(GSOMIA)の終了など今後の両国関係に及ぼす影響を展望してほしいという質問に菅長官は「予断を持って答えることは控えたい。どちらにせよ日本の一貫した立場に立って韓国に賢明な対応を求めていく」という回答を繰り返した。

     

    12月中国で開かれる韓日中首脳会議を契機に韓日会談が開催されるかに対しては「何も決まっていない」と回答した。

     

    菅長官は前日、歓談が実現したことそのものについても「控え室で握手をする過程で自然な流れでソファに座って対話することになった」としながら意味を縮小した。
    =============

     

    「韓国側の発表は韓国側に聞いていただきたい」

     

    「韓国の嘘につき合いたいなら、お前たちが勝手にやれ」
    「韓国の嘘に日本政府を絡めようとするんじゃねえ」

     

    って事ですわ。


    こういう記者の質問見てると、日本の記者って、つくづく程度が低いなって思う。

     

     

    日本のメディアは、文系じゃなくて、理系を採用したらどうですかね。

     

    文系でも、矛盾を理解できたり、論理を組み立てられる、法学部出身者を採用すべきだと思う。

    一々会見で説明させられてかわいそう。韓国大統領と違って忙しいのに。


    文在寅も忙しいでw
    ボッチ飯してるくらい忙しいwww


    ご苦労様です


    冷たいとか韓国人って気持ち悪い


    日本のパヨクも同じこと言いそうw


    嘘つきとは言えないだろさすがに他国に


    韓国のやってることテロ


    >冷たい

     かといって何か言ったら言ったで「内政干渉だ!」とか難癖をつけられるだけですし


    解釈の違う国だからこの対応は正解


    基本的価値観が違うから同じ物を見ても解釈が異なるのは仕方がない


    つい昨日起こった事柄でもファクトが共有出来ないから。解釈以前の話だと思う。


    そうなん、あっち行け、擦り寄ってくんな、シッ、シッ、


    >意味を縮小した。

    いやいや、韓国が意味を拡大しているのよw


    これが有名な「韓国に対する愛情は無いのかー」ですか。


    冷たい? 韓国の事は韓国に聞くのがスジだろう


    >菅長官は「韓国側の発表内容にコメントしない」
    >「韓国側の発表は韓国側に聞いていただきたい」
    >と回答を避けた。

    ガースー「知らんがな」wwwwwwwwwwwww


    釘刺すの早くなってきたな


    最近じゃ、言う前に刺してるからね~


    韓国めんどくせぇ


    >「韓国側の発表は韓国側に聞いていただきたい」

    そりゃそうだろうね。「無能の考えることは分からない」とは言えないもの(´・ω・`)


    あいつらの考え方がなんとなくわかって来たけど多分
     「天皇と同格の文大統領がわざわざ安倍と同じソファーに座ってやっているのになんの返事も返さないとは無礼だ!」
    ってニュースになると思う


    最初からそうやって「やっぱり日本は無礼でけしからん!ムンはよくやった」って話すにするのが狙いだからな


    大統領の上は最高裁判官じゃね?韓国だと
    最高裁判官の許可を得てない条約は無効だからな韓国だと


    官房長官も留守番しながらご苦労様です。


    中身も意味も無いものだったんだから、
    ガースーも、別段 取り立てて話す事も無いわな


    関係改善したいなんてムン政権も思ってないだろ
     あくまで韓国は話し合いをしようとしたのに日本が無視し続けたと言いたいだけ
     あと不満が溜まっている保守派への時間稼ぎ


    韓国は大法院判決をどうするのか明らかにしてから会いに来いよ。
     韓国が大法院判決を維持する限り、日本側の対応は変わらんよ。


    新藤が半笑いで否定してたからそうなんだろ
    会話したら無駄に仕事増えるだけなんだから相手しないのが正解


    毎回違うと言うのは面倒でしょ。

     人形に”NO”って書いて置いておいてはいかがでしょうか?


    そもそも、これのどこが冷たいのかが分からん
    普通の事を言っているだけだろ


    この調子じゃ安倍もいつか慰安婦待ち伏せ抱きつきされるな


    徴用工の件を韓国が解決しなければ
     いつまでたっても冷たいままだ


    相変わらず官房長官としてパーフェクトな対応だな


    事実をいうと差別っていうじゃん


    冷たい?
     通常日本側の韓国に対しての対応だ。


    文在寅と話す各国の首脳は話しても無いことを話したことにされるから、話さない方が吉


    (´・ω・`) え? あぁ、文大統領とちょっと立ち話しましたよ…、あれ、座ったかな?
    <丶`∀´> 韓日首脳会談が厳かに開催されたニダ!!!

    IOCが、札幌市・北海道に金出せって言ったらしい。

    あるのは傲慢さと無知。

    IOC幹部が知事と市長と会談へ 五輪マラソン札幌開催 移転費用の一部負担を要請か
    11/4(月) 18:25
    https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20191104-00000006-hokkaibunv-hok
     準備期間はわずか9か月。急ピッチで調整が進んでいます。

     

     東京五輪のマラソンと競歩の札幌開催決定を受け、コースの設定などが進んでいますが、IOCの関係者が今週後半にも札幌を訪れ、鈴木知事と秋元札幌市長と会談する方向で調整を進めていることが分かりました。

     

     IOCはこれまで、北海道や札幌市と公式に接触していませんでしたが、関係者によりますと、正式決定を受け、今週後半にもIOCの幹部が札幌を訪れ、鈴木知事と秋元札幌市長と会談する方向で調整を進めているということです。

     

     会談では大会運営への協力のほか、一部で100数十億円ともされる移転費用の一部を負担するよう求めるとみられています。

     

     また、大会組織委員会ではコース設定について、北海道マラソンのコースを軸に調整を進めていますが、周回コースの採用や長い直線が続く新川通など一部を変更することができるかなど調整を急いでいます。

    =============

     

    札幌のコースって、野原が多いので、日を遮るものがない。

     

    直射日光を浴びることになって暑いのと、更には風をまともに受けるらしい。

     

    ランナーにとっては、ビルの日陰の多い、東京よりも暑いんじゃないかと。

     


    「100数十億円ともされる移転費用の一部を負担」

     

    札幌市・北海道としては、こんな降ってわいたような事に、金を出したくないよね

     

    それに元々、やらなくたって、何も困らないんだから。

     

    それにしてもIOC、手順を間違えてるよな。

     


    金の計算もできてないし。

     

    思い付きだけで、勝手に決めてるとしか思えないですわ

     

    いや、思い付きだけなんだろうね

     

     

    「一部を変更することができるかなど調整」

     

    国際マラソンコースを確定出来る、国際ライセンスを持ってる人は、日本には数人しかいないんだと。

     

    数人が、セットで走って確認するらしい。

     

    コースを決めて、確認するのに、数年掛かるのが普通らしい。

     

     

    しかもこれから先、北海道は雪の季節。

     

    雪道では、確認が取れないんだと。

     

    時間的にも、費用的にも、人材的にも、どうするのかね?

    順序がちがうよね
    本当になめられてるわw


    札幌は一切金を出す必要は無いな


    カモられる大地


    IOCの要請は絶対で断れない、というのがコンセンサスだろ?


    札幌は冬季五輪誘致しようとしてるからね
    断ったら招致は絶望的


    これだけ問題続きのマラソンを札幌に押し付ける事が出来てほんと良かったわ
     しかも東京の出費ゼロだし


    これから雪も降るのに道路整備とか大丈夫?


    マジでコレ
     これから冬になるのに間に合うの???
     不安しかない


    間に合うよ毎年8月末には北海道マラソンしているから大丈夫
     今、水道管工事と電線を地中に入れているからそっちの工事が後回しだな
     だから道路整備の費用は出しても後は出さん
     ここまで東京やマスコミに叩かれて
    何故東京に協力しなきゃいけないの?
     急ピッチでするとトラブルが起きやすいから何かあったら困るから東京で走ってね熱中症で倒れられても困るし面白くないコースだから東京でいいわTV鑑賞でじゅうぶんです


    オールジャパンで牟田口とか
    牟田口ジャパンとか

     そういうのでよくね


    口を出すやつは金を出すべき
    IOCは全額払うか強権発動でマラソン中止にするか選べよ


    断ってIOCを苦しめろ


    断ろうぜ
    札幌も東京も出さない


    「費用のことはさておき、招致は決定」って、史上はじめてのケースじゃないか。
    これから、札幌市VS北海道VS組織委の血みどろの戦いになりそう。
     札幌市民、のんきに喜んでる場合か?


    喜んでいないよ半分以上の人が反対しているよTVはわざと喜んだ人を撮しているだけだよ
     これから5カ月間道路が雪で埋もれて道路整備が出来ないの残り4カ月で躓いたら大変だから真っ平らな道路を作らないといけないの300億道路に使っているんだから東京でやって


    まぁそうなるよね
    札幌も冬季オリンピックの誘致でポイント稼ぎたいだろうから
    飲まざるを得ないだろうね
    札幌市民かわいそうに


    東京オリンピック開催までのゴタゴタ見ても招致断念しない様なら北海道全土が夕張のようになってしまっても仕方ないかも
     そうなってしまっても知事は経験者だから安心出来るかな?w


    冬季五輪の招致のために、ポイント稼ぐ必要なんかあるのか? 無いだろ
     どこもやりたくないから、ロシアでも雪の無い温暖リゾートのソチ、雪が少ない韓国のド田舎、雪がまったくない北京
    サッポロだってスイスに負けたわけじゃなくて、頼まれて立候補したけどやっぱやめたで辞退しただけだろ
    何度辞退しても、IOCから立候補してよしてよお願いされるから仕方なく立候補してる状況だろ?


    だったら何のためらいもなく断れるよね?
     東京のケツ拭いただけなのになんで負担しなきゃならないんだ?ってIOCにビシっというんだろ?

     期待してるわーその展開w


    道民おめ!!wwwww


    道民だが払わんぞ
    札幌市民の金でやれ


    経費は全額IOCと日本と東京が負担するっていうから受け入れたのにw
     後出しジャンケンの詐欺ではないか?
     今更断れる雰囲気ないしな・・・


    費用負担してもいいからこれを冬季招致諦めるきっかけにしてほしいよ


    マラソンを札幌冬季オリンピックとして開催するのが良いかも


    条件次第だろうな

     まあ組織委がほとんどを出すだろうけど
     これは札幌にも費用の一部を出させて権益を分け与えよういうIOCの配慮だろう


    マラソンはチケット売らないから収益などないよ


    やってもいいけど、道民に負担求めるなよ。
    あと、ビアガーデンは閉鎖すんなよ。
     閉鎖するなら開催反対。


    たとえ北海道が負担するとしても
    財源は「地方交付税」だ

     つまり日本国民の全員が国税で負担する


    都に予算があるなら、ここからまさかの支援の申し入れ
    小池の株がグッと上がる


    えええーっタダじゃないんですか?


    光栄ですw


    マスオくん、そんなうまい話があるわけないじゃないか


    ビアガーデン中止にしたらこの市長クビになるだろうね


    それは確実だなw
     市の税収もかなり減る
     だからそうはならない


    オリンピックでビアガーデンを知ったけどそんな大きな人気イベントなんだね


     60年の歴史があるからね
     よさこいより古い


    人は入ってるよ、仕事帰りに丁度いいから
    札幌市民が短い夏を楽しむ風物詩、というのが一般的な解釈かな
    騒がしいので、俺は2~3回しか行った事が無いけどね
     でも大きいのかな?100m四方が4ブロックだぜ


    ビアガーデンだけじゃない札幌競馬もその時期


    警備は雪まつりのように自衛隊にお願いすればいい 警察と協力してな
    晋三や防衛大臣に国民から圧力かけてやれや


    マラソンのチケット買ってた人はそのまま北海道で使えるの?


    使えないよ。一回払い戻すって
    札幌では客席ないからチケットなし(収入なしw)って話になってる


    五輪を理由にすると湯水のように税金使うよ
    交通規制も邪魔
     札幌の普通の人たちお気の毒


    たかがマラソンだけで何十億も出せないだろ?


    まあ、せいぜいヒグマに気をつけろや


    よく考えたら、なんで走るだけで100億円もかかるんだ?
    しかも、さらに盛っていくんだろ。


    東京なんか道路に300億円だからな
    他にミストシャワーあちこちに作ったり、日陰作るために街路樹植えたり、うちの近所は五輪会場に近いんだけど公園のトイレやらベンチやら全部新しくなった
    金の使い方がものすごい


    まじかw


    そんなのに国の税金投入したのか。
    むこう50年は地方交付税がどうとか言えないな。


    アホだな
    最初は渋ったら良かったのに


    無料で出来ると思ってたさっぽこピンチやんwww
    タダより高いものはない、うまい話には裏がある 勉強になりましたね


    負担があるなら、やらないの一言で済む
    別に招致したわけでもなんでもないんやから、やらんでも傷はない
     マラソン中止でも構わんしな


    関連する街並み整備は地元負担でしょ


    まあ小池はうまいよな
    最後まで合意せず邪魔はしませんみたいな言い方して、東京は金は出さないという条件を約束させた
     あんな言い方なかなかできない


    合意なき決定は面白い判断だったと思う


    オリンピックにお金かかって
    除雪がおろそかになったら困るなあ


    もともと冬季五輪に色気があってシッポ振って引き受けたんだろ
    全額札幌が出すべき


    今この状態なの?ホント大丈夫か?


    ショバ代を頂くお話ならば聞いてやってもええんやで。


    これで、おK


    札幌が「1円も払わない。払うなら開催は受け入れない」
    って言ったら困るのIOCなんじゃないの?


    「光栄です」の前にそれ言ってればなぁ


    光栄って思ってるんならお金出すべきだよねwwwwwwwww
    よかったじゃん札幌開催してもらえてwww
    あっお金は払ってね


    北海道は金ないから無理だろ
     オリンピックは中止が正しい


    もともとなかったお話やさかい
    別にこちらとしてはマラソン自体やらなくても済む話

     場所を貸す側がなんでそちらさんの費用を立て替えんといけませんのやww


    札幌は会場を貸す方なんだからIOCから金貰うべきだよな


    バカだなぁもう間に合わねえよw


    五輪で都市の宣伝すれば観光客ガーって言うけど現時点でホテル足りないくらいに大盛況なんだろ?


    つーか札幌は来年4月から総突貫工事突入になるんだろうなぁ。。。
    ご愁傷様ですとしか言えない。。。

    وأفاد المتحدث باسم الجيش في الجنوب لوكالة فرانس برس، أن متشددين هاجموا مساء الثلاثاء نقطتي تفتيش لمتطوعين من الدفاع المدني في إقليم يالا، وأطلقوا النار عليهم في الوقت الذين كانوا يتحدثون إلى مجموعة من القرويين.
     
    وقال: "قُتل 12 شخصا في موقع الهجوم، وقضى اثنان في المستشفى لاحقا، وواحد توفي هذا الصباح" متأثرا بجراحه، مضيفا أن المتمردين استولوا على بنادق إم-16 وذخائر من نقطتي التفتيش.
     
    وأشار المتحدث إلى أن جميع المناطق المحيطة بموقع الهجوم أغلقت، حيث يتم إجراء التحقيقات اللازمة. ويسعى سكان هذه المناطق للحصول على حكم ذاتي في منطقتهم المتميزة ثقافيا، التي تقع على الحدود مع ماليزيا.
     
    ويأخذ النزاع طابع الهجمات المتبادلة بين الجيش والمسلحين، لكن المدنيين من الجانبين غالبا ما يذهبون ضحية هذا النزاع. ويتهم المسلحون الحكومة التايلاندية بإجبارهم على التخلي عن ثقافتهم المتميزة وارتكاب انتهاكات بحقهم تمر دائما من دون عقاب.
     
    وتأتي أعمال العنف التي وقعت الثلاثاء بعد أشهر من وفاة رجل يدعى عبد الله عيسى موسى كان قد دخل في غيبوبة بعد استجوابه في مركز اعتقال تايلاندي ذي سمعة سيئة. 
     
    وبعد أيام من اعتقال عبد الله، قُتل أربعة أشخاص في هجوم على موقع عسكري للجيش التايلاندي في وقت متأخر من الليل، مما أعطى إشارات بأنه هجوم انتقامي.

              

    The Best Movies & TV Shows to Watch in Portland: Fri Nov 8-Thurs Nov 21

     Cache   
    Like all good things, this piece involves both Bushwick Bill and Queen Elizabeth. by Erik Henriksen

    An Autumn Afternoon & Grave of the Fireflies
    Are you sad right now? Do you want to be more sad, but inside a theater? Boy howdy, do we have a double feature for you! (Fri Nov 8-Sun Nov 10, Fifth Avenue Cinema)

    Charlie’s Angels
    The latest reboot of the old TV show, this time directed by Elizabeth Banks and starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. (Opens Wed Nov 13, various theaters)

    The Crown
    I don’t know how they did it, but somehow The Crown—a slow, fusty, grandma-friendly show about a bunch of super-rich inbred British people sitting in armchairs and fiddling with silverware—ended up being one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen. It got me through those awful days after the 2016 election. It introduced me to Vanessa Kirby, which was life-changing. And it’s the only thing my family can talk about at holidays that we all agree on. For The Crown’s long-awaited third season, the world’s only perfect person, Olivia Colman, has joined the cast. We don’t deserve a thing this good. (Streams Sun Nov 17, Netflix) NED LANNAMANN

    Dammed to Extinction
    With its tinkling piano score, it’s hard to shake the feel-good hippie bullshit vibe, but Dammed to Extinction provides a unique, wide-angle take on the eternal debate over dams in the Pacific Northwest: As dams lead to the deaths of salmon, the deaths of salmon lead to shrinking orca populations. Screening followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and Columbia Riverkeeper’s Brett VandenHeuvel. (Tues Nov 12, OMSI’s Empirical Theater) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Doctor Sleep
    In adapting Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, director Mike Flanagan looks to be channelling Stanley Kubrick as much as King. That’s either brilliant or some Jack Torrance-level madness. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, Overlook Hotel)


    {{image:3}}

    Ford v Ferrari
    Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Thurs Nov 14, various theaters)

    Frankie
    Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Fri Nov 15, Regal Fox Tower 10)

    The Good Liar
    I’ve been screaming about The Good Liar since August, when I found out that Bill Condon directed an AUSTERE SEXY ENGLISH THRILLER WITH A SEPTUAGENARIAN TWIST starring Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen. I can’t wait to watch the two greatest actors of the Silent Generation eye-fuck one another over a dining room table and double-cross all the way to the bank. (Opens Fri Nov 15, various theaters) SUZETTE SMITH

    Harriet
    A live-action reimagining of Harriet Tubman’s journey to self-liberation. Harriet doesn’t subject the sensitive viewer to excessive gore or violence (though there is one particularly unsettling scene), because for once, this is a story in the “slave movie” genre about triumph, leadership, and Tubman’s unwavering faith. (Now playing, various theaters) JENNI MOORE

    The Irishman
    Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Fri Nov 15, Hollywood Theatre; streams Wed Nov 27, Netflix)

    Jojo Rabbit
    There’s more to the complicated Jojo Rabbit—set in the waning days of WWII, it focuses on fanatical young Nazi Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) and his imaginary BFF, Adolph Hitler (Taika Waititi)—than first appears, and only a director as committed, inventive, and life-affirmingly good-hearted as Waititi would even have a chance of pulling it off. He does, to unforgettable effect. (Opens Fri Nov 1, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Koyaanisqatsi
    Director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass’ experimental examination of humankind’s relationship with what remains of the natural world. (Fri Nov 15-Thurs Nov 21, Academy Theater; Sun Nov 17, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

    Kung Fu Theater: Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow
    When action master Yuen Woo-ping decided to cast some kid calling himself “Jackie Chan” in this 1978 kung fu flick, Earth became a better place. Screens on 35mm. (Tues Nov 12, Hollywood Theatre)

    The Lighthouse
    The second film from Robert Eggers, the director of the excellent, wildly disconcerting The Witch, is... funnier than expected? Sure, it’s also fucked-up and intense and distressing, but there are significantly more fart jokes than one might expect. (Now playing, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Midway
    Jingoistic disaster porn from Roland Emmerich. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)

    Motherless Brooklyn
    Director/star Edward Norton’s decision to turn Jonathan Lethem’s postmodern neo-noir novel into a literal 1950s-set noir is both an asset and a liability. Motherless Brooklyn is easy on the eyes, but the movie’s overlong and unfocused. (Now playing, various theaters) NED LANNAMANN

    My Summer as a Goth
    The John Hughes-inspired My Summer as a Goth, from Portland filmmakers Tara Johnson-Medinger and Brandon Lee Roberts, is a likable film, despite awkward pacing and its teen characters’ extremely... teenagery performances. Screens as part of Oregon Film’s “Portland Circuit” program, which screens locally produced films in theaters across the city. (Mon Nov 18, Hollywood Theatre; Tues Nov 19, Clinton Street Theater; Wed Nov 20, Cinema 21; Thurs Nov 21, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium) SUZETTE SMITH

    Last Christmas
    Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)

    Pain & Glory
    Pedro Almodóvar has long warmed his filmography with flickers of details from his personal life, but Pain & Glory brings us closer to the flame. In it, we look in on Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas), a filmmaker in self-imposed exile due to a creative decline and a variety of physical ailments. Banderas stifles his melodramatic tendencies to subtly and powerfully reveal Mallo’s agonies and evolution. (Opens Fri Oct 25, Cinema 21) ROBERT HAM

    Parasite
    Parasite is director Bong Joon-ho at his very best, a hilarious and deeply unsettling look at class and survival with a gleeful and terrifying twist. (Now playing, Cinema 21, Hollywood Theatre) JASMYNE KEIMIG

    Playing with Fire
    Remember that early period of the Rock’s acting career, where he was only allowed to make silly-ass kids’ movies or be the Scorpion King? Well, this is like that, but with John Cena. Who sucks. Co-starring Keegan Michael Key, John Leguizamo, and a big dog wearing a fireman’s hat! (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)


    {{image:12}}

    Portland Book Festival—Film to Page: Drop Dead Gorgeous & Rushmore
    Two exceedingly solid screenings presented by the Portland Book Festival: Rushmore, with a post-film discussion between author Morgan Parker and screenwriter Jon Raymond, and Drop Dead Gorgeous, with a post-film discussion between author Kristen Arnett and the Portland Monthly’sFiona McCann. (Fri Nov 8 & Sat Nov 9, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

    Queer Commons: By Hook or by Crook
    The Hollywood’s ongoing mission to make going to the movies a little more queer continues with a buddy comedy about petty criminals. (Wed Nov 13, Hollywood Theatre)

    Repo Man
    “I don’t want no commies in my car. No Christians either.” (Fri Nov 8-Thurs Nov 14, Academy Theater)

    The Report
    The Report is short for “The Torture Report,” which is short for “The Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program,” which is short for the 6,700-page account of one of America’s most horrifying and shameful stretches of history. Expertly distilling an infinitely complicated, infinitely disturbing chain of events, writer/director Scott Z. Burns follows the efforts of increasingly troubled Senate staffer Daniel Jones (Adam Driver, excellent as ever), who, under the oversight of Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening), works to discover and document the CIA’s continued use of barbaric and ineffective “enhanced interrogation techniques” on prisoners captured after 9/11. Burns spends just as much time studying the failed, Republican-led efforts to cover up America’s war crimes as he does examining both the ways they were justified (“You have to make this work. It’s only legal if it works,” says one CIA official, played by Maura Tierney) and rewarded, with a coda that not-so-subtly alludes to the fact that Gina Haspel, the current director of the CIA, oversaw a black site in Thailand where some of the atrocities documented in the report were committed. (Opens Fri Nov 15, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Repressed Cinema: The Criminal Element
    16mm shorts focusing on crime, including 1903’s The Great Train Robbery and Vandalism: Fun or Dumb?, “a look at vandalism with 1960s youth.” DAMN YOUTHS! (Tues Nov 19, Hollywood Theatre)

    Sonic Cinema: Bushwick Bill: Geto Boy
    This documentary about the life and exploits of the Geto Boys’ most famous member dares ask the question: But does it feel good to be a gangsta? Really, though? Director in attendance. (Sat Nov 9, Hollywood Theatre)

    The Spanish Prisoner
    David Mamet’s 1997 neo-noir starring a very sinister... STEVE MARTIN?? Screens on 35mm. (Sun Nov 10, Hollywood Theatre)


    {{image:3}}

    Terminator: Dark Fate
    The Terminator series’ latest reboot has one thing going for it: Linda Hamilton has returned to play Sarah Connor, which means there’s a Terminator movie worth watching again. Well, it’s worth watching, I guess, if you, like me, have devoted entirely too much of your ever-shrinking lifespan to thinking about terminators. For everyone else, Dark Fate’s appeal—which largely hinges on seeing Hamilton, Arnold, and various bloodthirsty murderbots back in action—might be limited. (Now playing, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Underscan: Cult & Genre Reframed: Silent Running
    Special effects legend Roger Trumbull’s earnest, silly, eco-conscious sci-fi from 1972 features environmental lecturing, poker-playing robots, and a MarioKart race. (Sun Nov 10, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

    Watchmen
    Watchmen is based on the legendary comics, but it’s not a direct adaptation; rather, the HBO series uses it as background material to tell an entirely new tale set (mostly) in 2019, a story devised by series creator Damon Lindelof, the mastermind behind Lost and The Leftovers. This Watchmen is about racism in America—its history, its evolution, and its implications in daily life. It makes the provocations of Joker look like a bowl of wet noodles. (Sundays, HBO) NED LANNAMANN

    Thai Strategy 2020 (Part 3): Top 10 Stock Picks

     Cache   

    In constructing our new portfolio, we have largely avoided low-liquidity small cap stocks with the exception of two outstanding ones (STEC, MAJOR). PTT is simply a geopolitical play on higher oil prices. The other top picks for 2020 can be broken down into three sub-groups:

    • Beneficiaries of tourism & consumption recovery are the biggest group, including AOT, BTS, and CPALL. All three continue to expand their networks. China's economic recovery and resumption of outbound tourism benefit these large cap stocks.
    • Resumption of investment activity. Siam Cement and the well connected STEC will benefit from the government's increases in government infrastructure. Likewise shall be the case of Bangkok Bank, which has traditionally focused on corporate banking.
    • Future plays. China has important plans for Thailand as a logistical hub; this will benefit Amata. True Corp benefits from a host of new catalysts in 2019 whose benefits will carry over to 2020 and beyond.

    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving

     Cache   
    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving is the largest and most encyclopedic book available for carvers who want to study all varieties of Thai carving in one convenient book. This carving book is unique in its complete coverage of presenting Thai food with exquisite carvings and it is essentially two books in one.

    Written by Thai fruit carving expert, Penpan Sittitrai, the first part of the book, Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving focuses entirely on step-by-step carving instructions, each with their own corresponding full-color photographs, detailed instructions, and sketched illustrations. Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

    In the second half of the book, Vegetable And Fruit Carving In Thai Food, traditional Thai recipes are artfully presented in more elaborate carved vessels, containers, bowls and platters (see list of recipes and carvings below). Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    All-in-all, this is a sizable compendium of the art of fruit and vegetable carving, filled with stunning pictures and detailed instructions. Written by one of the most respected Thai fruit carving artists in Thailand today, it is as elegant as it is useful, being an enduring favorite and a real treasure for any fruit carving enthusiast.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.

    Akibat mengguna kabel pengecas terkoyak, remaja Thailand maut direnjat elektrik ketika mengecas telefon pintar

     Cache   

    CHAIYAPHUM – Seorang remaja perempuan didapati maut setelah terkena renjatan elektrik dipercayai berpunca daripada penggunaan kabel pengecas telefon bimbit yang sudah terkoyak dan menyentuhi kaki katil besinya.

    Mangsa, Nong Ying yang berusia 17 tahun itu didakwa sedang bermain dengan peranti pintarnya itu semasa ia dicas menggunakan kabel yang telah dibalut dengan pita pelekat ekoran pembalutnya sudah terkoyak.

    Kejadian itu disedari ketika ibu mangsa, Boonpeng Tuponchai yang berusia 47 tahun, menemui mangsa terbaring di atas katilnya sebaik sahaja dia pulang ke rumah mereka yang terletak di Chaiyaphum.

    “Saya fikir anak saya sedang tidur sebelum cuba mengejutnya. Namun, apabila menyentuh sahaja tubuhnya, saya juga mengalami sedikit kejutan elektrik”, jelasnya.

    Dia kemudian dengan pantas cuba menutup suis elektrik yang digunakan itu akan tetapi mangsa tidak dapat diselamatkan lagi.

    Hasil pemeriksaan, mangsa didapati mengalami kesan lecur pada tangan kirinya, yang dipercayai digunakan untuk memegang telefon pintarnya itu.

    Menurut pegawai penyiasat, Kapten Khanti Peansoongnern, punca renjatan tersebut berlaku adalah disebabkan oleh kabel lama yang telah terkoyak dan sudah dibalut beberapa kali.

    “Saya beranggapan bahawa kabel lama itu sudah pun bocor dan menyebabkan renjatan apabila bersentuhan dengan tanah ataupun besi”, katanya.

    Menurutnya, gadis terbabit secara tidak sengaja menyentuh katilnya yang diperbuat daripada besi dan terkena kejutan elektrik. “Namun kita perlu mengumpul bukti dan menjalankan bedah siasat bagi mengesahkan kematiannya”, akhiri Khanti.

    You Sunk My Battleship

     Cache   
    Preface

    People who make military policy and amateurs who follow it alike are in something of a vacuum when it comes to naval warfare.  While the Navy is a very large share of the United States Defense Department budget, there have been so few skirmishes in the past fifty years or so that it is hard to get a reality check on the multi-billion dollar expenditures involved. The few incidents which have occurred, meanwhile, have taken on disproportionate importance.  

    While some naval history is too distant to be of much use, from the ramming battles between glorified rowboats of the Greeks, to the days of sails and cannons, it is fair, at least, to look at the experience of World War II, the last full fledged blue sea naval campaign in world history.  This experience has informed much of the current conventional wisdom regarding naval warfare, and while the lessons learned in World War II need to be updated to reflect technological advances that have taken place since then, they are too recent to safely ignore.

    Among other things, World War II taught the lesson that the heavy armor of a battleship was no match for modern offensive weapons. 

    As the Wikipedia article linked above explains:
    Battleships were the largest and most complex, and hence the most expensive warships of their time; as a result, the value of investment in battleships has always been contested. 
    As the French politician Etienne Lamy wrote in 1879, "The construction of battleships is so costly, their effectiveness so uncertain and of such short duration, that the enterprise of creating an armored fleet seems to leave fruitless the perseverance of a people". The Jeune École school of thought of the 1870s and 1880s sought alternatives to the crippling expense and debatable utility of a conventional battlefleet. It proposed what would nowadays be termed a sea denial strategy, based on fast, long-ranged cruisers for commerce raiding and torpedo boat flotillas to attack enemy ships attempting to blockade French ports. 
    The ideas of the Jeune École were ahead of their time; it was not until the 20th century that efficient mines, torpedoes, submarines, and aircraft were available that allowed similar ideas to be effectively implemented. The determination of powers such as Germany to build battlefleets with which to confront much stronger rivals has been criticised by historians, who emphasise the futility of investment in a battlefleet that has no chance of matching its opponent in an actual battle.
    Large Warships In Existing Navies

    Today, there are only two ships of the battleship class in the world, both in the Russian Navy, only one of which is in active service, the 28,000 ton Admiral Nakhimov commissioned in 1988 is currently undergoing refit and is out of service, and the 28,000 ton Pyotr Velikiy, of the same class commissioned in 1998 is in active service.  

    The 14,564 ton Zumwalt class destroyer of the U.S. Navy, the largest warship in the U.S. Navy that is not an aircraft carrier or non-combatant logistics ship, and is is arguably misclassified as a destroyer deserves a battleship designation. Just three Zumwalt class destroyers have three have been built (and no more have been ordered). One was commissioned in 2016, one was commissioned in 2019, and one is awaiting a commission later this year. It cost $7.5 billion per ship of total cost to build and has been severely criticized:
    Mike Fredenburg analyzed the program for National Review after Zumwalt broke down in the Panama Canal in November 2016, and he concluded that the ship's problems "are emblematic of a defense procurement system that is rapidly losing its ability to meet our national security needs." Fredenburg went on to detail problems relating to the skyrocketing costs, lack of accountability, unrealistic goals, a flawed concept of operations, the perils of designing a warship around stealth, and the failure of the Advanced Gun System. He concludes:

    "The Zumwalt is an unmitigated disaster. Clearly it is not a good fit as a frontline warship. With its guns neutered, its role as a primary anti-submarine-warfare asset in question, its anti-air-warfare capabilities inferior to those of our current workhorse, the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, and its stealth not nearly as advantageous as advertised, the Zumwalt seems to be a ship without a mission."
    Indeed, only twenty navies in the world have surface warships (including aircraft carriers, but not transport ships) larger than a frigate: U.S. (111), Japan (48), China (33), Russia (20), India (14), France (14), United Kingdom (7), Norway (5), Italy (4), Taiwan (4), Netherlands (4), Denmark (3), Germany (3), South Korea (3), Egypt (3), Saudi Arabia (3), Spain (2), Brazil (1), Thailand (1), and Morocco (1).

    Only seven of these countries (China, Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Thailand and Morocco) would plausibly be U.S. naval warfare adversaries in the foreseeable future (while many of the remaining thirteen countries would likely be allies of the U.S. in an future naval warfare in their region). These seven plausible adversaries have 62 large surface warships ships combined. Of these only China and Russia are really serious concerns militarily and they have 53 large surface warships combined.

    The Russian fleet's large ships, moreover, are split between several global regions that are distant from each other in some case (Northern, Baltic, Black Sea and Pacific). The aircraft carrier, the battleship, one smaller cruiser, and six destroyers are in Russia's Northern fleet. One smaller cruiser and five destroyers are in Russia's Pacific fleet. One of its smaller cruisers and one of its destroyers are in Russia's Black Sea fleet. Three of its destroyers are in Russia's Baltic fleet.

    Several other plausible U.S. naval warfare adversaries such as Iran and North Korea have submarines but no large surface combatants.

    Currently, the U.S. has 20 aircraft carriers (11 "super carriers" of 100,000 tons or more, and 9 amphibious assault ships which can carry helicopters, Osprey aircraft, Harrier aircraft or F-35B aircraft of 40,000-45,000 tons), Italy has 2, Japan has 4, France has 4, Australia has 2, Egypt has 2, and Brazil, China, India, Russia, Spain, Thailand and the United Kingdom each have one. In all there are 42 aircraft carriers in active naval service in the world.

    Five aircraft carriers (one each from the U.K., China, Russia, India and France in order of size) are between the size of a U.S. super carrier and the smallest U.S. amphibious assault ship ranging from 42,000 to 65,000 tons (and only four of these from the China, Russia, India and France, and the ten U.S. super carriers, allow for something other than a vertical landing). The other eighteen aircraft carriers range from 11,486 tons to 27,100 tons (eleven of which are restricted to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft such as helicopters and the MV-22 Osprey). All twenty-seven carriers under 42,000 tons and two larger aircraft (one from the U.S. at 45,000 tons and one from the U.K. at 65,000 tons) are restricted either to short takeoff vertical landing aircraft such as an F-35B or a Harrier, or to vertical takeoff and landing aircraft.

    Eleven more carriers (including two that are only VTOL carriers) are undergoing sea trials or ordered: the U.S. 3, China 3, and South Korea, India, Italy and Turkey one each.

    Currently, the U.S. has 22 cruisers (10,000 tons each) and Russia has 4 (one battleship with 28,000 tons and three cruisers with 12,500 tons) in active service. In all there are 27 cruisers in active naval service in the world. The U.S. cruisers are virtually indistinguishable from its destroyers and slightly inferior to them as they are older designs.

    Currently, the U.S. has 69 destroyers (including 2 of the Zumwalt class), Japan has 44, China has 32, Russia has 15, India has 13, France has 10, the U.K. has 6, Norway has 5Taiwan has 4, the Netherlands has 4Germany has 3, Denmark has 3South Korea has 3Saudi Arabia has 3, Italy has 2, Egypt has 1, Morocco has 1, and Spain has 1. The largest destroyer in active service (other than the two Zumwalt class destroyers in active service) is 10,290 tons and many of which are considerably smaller. Some of the destroyer class ships are larger, more capable ships actually called frigates in an effort to make comparisons comparable. All ships classified as frigates for these purposes are under 5,000 tons, although a few particularly capable frigates between 4,000 and 5,000 tons are classified as destroyers. There are 219 destroyers in all of the world's navies combined.

    In all there are 42 aircraft carriers over 11,000 tons and 7 other surface combatants over 11,000 tons in naval service in the world. Of those, 20 aircraft carriers and 2 other surface combatants are in the U.S. Navy and 1 aircraft carrier and 4 other surface combatants (one battleship and three cruisers) are in the Russian Navy. The other navies of the world have 21 aircraft carriers, only 10 of which are more than VTOL helicopter carriers. There are 244 other surface combatants bigger than frigates in the world in active naval service (of which 67 are in the U.S. Navy and 15 are in the Russian Navy).

    The Japanese Naval Experience

    The case that really brought this home for the Japanese was the sinking of the battleship Yamato.  This 71,000 ton ship with massive 18 inch guns was tough.  It  had previously survived a hit from a torpedo delivered by a U.S. submarine on Christmas Day in 1943, and two bombs that hit it in October of 1944, in the Leyte Gulf.  Two more 36,000 ton Japanese battleships, the Fuso and the Yamashiro, were sunk by naval gunfire and torpedoes in that same October battle.  Bombs damaged the 39,000 ton Japanese battleship Nagato in the battle of the Leyte Gulf badly enough to remove it from action. Ultimately, air power prevailed over the big guns and heavy armor of the pinnacle of the battleship era.  On April 7, 1945, the Yamato was sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft and it took 2,498 Japanese sailors with it.  The 32,000 ton Japanese battleship Ise (already removed from service nine months earlier by a mine), and Japanese battleships Hyunga and Haruna were sunk by carrier based U.S. aircraft in July of 1945.

    Japan had already lost its 32,000 ton battlecruiser Kirishima to 16” naval gunfire from the 47,000 ton American battleship Washington in 1942 in one of the last of the battles that went according traditional naval models of close range ship to ship combat, in this case, at a range of a mile and a half.  The 28,000 ton Japanese battleship Kongo was sunk by a submarine in November of 1944.  Its three sister ships were sunk by U.S. aircraft in World War II.

    The American Naval Experience in World War II

    Americans remember Pearl Harbor.  Yes, this carrier based air attack was a surprise.  But, a heavily armored hull did not prevent this attack from sinking the 32,000 ton U.S. battleship Arizona and three other battleships.  Four more battleships were seriously damaged, the 29,000 ton American battleship Nevada among them, although the Nevada was ultimately returned to service and survived further battle damage on multiple occasions.  Few naval strategists before Pearl Harbor had realized how vulnerable the fleet was to aerial attack.

    The 33,000 ton American battleship Idaho ran aground off Okinawa in June of 1945.  American battleship Pennsylvania,  a sister ship of the Arizona, was taken out of action by enemy aircraft in August of 1945.

    The 45,000 ton American battleship Indiana did exhibit the resilience in the face of damage which battleships are legendary for notwithstanding a mixed experience in real life.  It survived both a collision and a hit by a kamakazi pilot in 1944, and serious storm damage in 1945, yet survived until decommissioning in 1963.  The 45,000 ton South Dakota similarly sustained and survived repeated battle damage. The 56,000 ton American battleship Iowa likewise survived serious damage from shore fire sustained in March of 1944, and the 47,000 ton battleship Washington survived a 1942 torpedo hit from a Japanese submarine and a 1945 friendly fire incident.

    The German Naval Experience in World War II

    Germany’s 51,000 ton battleship the Bismark found its fate at the bottom of the sea in May of 1941.  The British Royal Air Force damaged the 40,000 ton German battleship Gneisenau to the point that it never again was useable as a battleship in 1942.  Sister German battleship Scharnhorst, however, survived in the face of a seemingly never ending barrage of hits sustained.

    The Italian and Vichy French Naval Experiences in World War II

    Both Italy and Vichy France both saw battleships destroyed in port before they were ever launched.  

    The planned 48,000 ton battleship Clemenceau was destroyed in its French port during a bombing raid in August 1944.  The 36,000 ton battleship Dunkerque, in the hands of the Vichy French, was damaged sufficiently to be taken out of action, and lost one in seven of its crew members, in July of 1940, by a combination of British warship attacks and torpedoes in two separate incidents.

    The 30,000 ton Italian battleship Duilio wasn’t actually sunk, but a British bombing raid in November of 1940 took it out of service for about a year, and the ship served only a brief secondary role in World War II thereafter.  The 46,000 ton battleship Vittorio Veneto was taken out of action by British aircraft in 1941, then by a submarine, and then 1943 by another aircraft.  The 47,000 ton Italian battleship Littorio was taken out of commission by British aircraft by June of 1942.

    The Spanish Naval Experience in World War II

    The 16,000 ton battleship Espana was sunk by a “friendly” mine in July of 1937 during the Spanish civil war, killing a third of the sailors on board.

    The British Naval Experience in World Wars I and II.

    While it predates World War II, it is worth recalling that the 22,000 ton British battleship Dreadnought (the second of that name launched in 1906) which became synonymous with the very notion of a battleship, sank only one enemy vessel, a German submarine, in all of World War I.  It achieved this end not with its ten 12” guns, but with a methodology as old as Greek naval warfare.  It rammed it.

    German dive bombing planes took the 30,000 ton British battleship Iron Duke out of service on October 17, 1939.  It Italian airplane’s torpedo took the 38,000 ton British battleship Nelson out of service for a year on September 27, 1941.  The British lost the 42,000 ton battleship Prince of Wales in December of 1941 to an attack by Japanese aircraft, after having suffered serious damage from naval guns, which was repaired, earlier that same year.  The 33,000 ton British battleship Queen Elizabeth was removed from service when an Italian frogman bombed it while it was in harbor that same month.

              

    Indonesia Masih Dalam Daftar Black List Tokyo MOU Porst State Control

     Cache   

    Jakarta, Gotoseajobs.com -. PORT STATE CONTROL (PSC)
    Port State control (PSC) merupakan Lembaga/ organisasi yang berfungsi melakukan pengawasan terhadap kapal kapal asing yang memasuki wilayah pelabuhan untuk memastikan bahwa kondisi kapal kapal tersebut layak dan dioperasikan sesuai dengan standar Internasional dalam hal keselamatan dan keamanan serta pencegahan pencemaran lingkungan maritim.


    Indonesia sebagai salah satu anggota International Maritime Organization (IMO) tergabung dalam Asia Pacific Memorandum of Understanding on Port State Control, yang dikenal dengan nama TOKYO MOU yang beranggotakan 20 Negara, yaitu negara negara yang secara geografis terletak dikawasan Asia - Pacific. 20 Negara tersebut adalah : 

    Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Fiji, Hong Kong (China), Indonesia, Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Marshall Islands, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Russian Federation, Singapore, Thailand, Vanuatu dan Viet Nam.


    Setiap Tahun TOKYO MOU menerbitkan Laporan Tahunan mengenai Aktifitas Port State Control dikawasan Asia Pacific (Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia - Pacific Region).


    Dalam melaksanakan aktifitasnya melakukan fungsi pengawasan ke kapal kapal, tidak ada kaitannya dengan kondisi politik suatu negara. 

    PSC selalu mengacu pada instrumen yang jelas sebagai dasar dalam melakukan inspeksi, Instrumen tersebut adalah :

    − Konvensi Internasional tentang Load Lines, 1966;

    − Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional tentang LoadLines, 1966, dan amandemennya;

    − Konvensi Internasional for Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, dan Amandemennya;

    − Protocol of 1978 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

    − Protocol of 1988 kaitannya dengan Konvensi Internasional for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974;

    − Konvensi Internasional for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships 1973, dimodifikasi oleh Protocol of 1978 yang berkaitan dengannya, dan amandemennya;

    − Konvensi Internasional tentang Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers,
    1978, dan Amandemennya;

    − Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972;

    − Konvensi Internasional tentang Tonnage Measurement of Ships, 1969;

    − Merchant Shipping (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1976 (ILO Convention No. 147);

    − Maritime Labour Convention, 2006;

    − Konvensi Internasional tentang Control of Harmful Anti-fouling Systems on Ships, 2001;

    − Protocol of 1992 to amend the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage, 1969;

    − Konvensi Internasional untuk Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments, 2004.


    Dari SUMMARY OF PORT STATE INSPECTION DATA 2016 – 2018, tercatat bahwa dari 659 kapal berbendera Indonesia yang di inspeksi oleh Port State, 58 diantaranya ditahan oleh port state / Detention. Excess factor sebesar 1.3 %. 

    Sehingga Annual Report on Port State Control in the Asia-Pacific Region 2018 yang diterbitkan oleh TOKYO MOU, telah menempatkan Indonesia dalam kategori BLACK LIST, kalah jauh dibandingkan dengan negara tetangga kita Malaysia, dari 571 kapal berbendera Malaysia yang di inspeksi oleh Port state, hanya 14 kapal yang ditahan oleh Port State, dengan Excess factor sebesar minus 1.05 % telah menempatkan Malaysia dalam kategori Whitelist, sementara itu Indonesia dengan sangat agresif berwacana ingin menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA.


    Sungguh miris, bagaimana mungkin Indonesia menjadi POROS MARITIM DUNIA apabila Indonesia masih berada dalam kategori Blacklist. 

    Rasanya sangat jauh panggang dari api.
    Indonesia berada pada kategori Blacklist oleh Tokyo MOU merupakan gambaran umum kondisi  Pelayaran Indonesia dimata dunia.


    Sah sah saja Jika Indonesia berwacana ingin menjadi Poros Maritim dunia, tidak ada yang salah dengan wacana tersebut namun harus diikuti dengan tindakan yang nyata dalam menyiapkan sumber daya manusia yang mumpuni serta komitmen yang kuat dari pemerintah dan pelaku usaha/ pemangku kepentingan  untuk dapat mewujudkan keinginan tersebut. 

    Dengan situasi dan  kondisi dunia Pelayaran Indonesia saat ini, apa mungkin ? ( Rudy Kumesan )

     Cache   

    Standard Chartered today announced that it has joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA). The EEA is a members-driven standards organisation whose charter is to develop open, blockchain specifications that drive harmonisation and interoperability for businesses and consumers worldwide – one that is backed by the largest developer community in the world and a worldwide member-base.

    As a member of the EEA, Standard Chartered will collaborate with industry leaders in pursuit of Ethereum-based enterprise technology best practices, open standards, and open-source reference architectures. The Bank views blockchain as central to banking and commerce in the digital era, so transactions can be verified, secure and processed in real time.

    “Technology enables us to facilitate trade and investment across our footprint markets, improving client experiences and offering new services,” said Dr Michael Gorriz, Group Chief Information Officer at Standard Chartered. “We are excited to be a part of the EEA and look forward to opportunities where we can collaborate with other leading industry players to deepen blockchain research and application in the banking sector.”

    The EEA membership base represents hundreds of companies from every region of the world across a wide variety of business sectors, including technology, banking, legal, government, healthcare, energy, pharmaceuticals, marketing, and insurance. The EEA’s Special Interest and Technical Working Groups define market requirements needed to contribute to future versions of the EEA specification, helping to scale the number of market categories the specification supports.

    Standard Chartered has been working with various industry partners and fintechs to explore the use of innovative technology to make financial systems more efficient and accessible for its clients. The Bank is one of the founding members of Voltron, a blockchain-based open industry platform that was launched in October 2018 to digitally create, exchange, approve and issue Letters of Credits (LCs), and recently issued the first LC over the platform for the oil industry. It is also co-creating blockchain-enabled supply chain financing solutions with China-based Linklogis, completing its first joint deep-tier supply chain financing transaction for Digital Guangdong and its upstream suppliers.

    Other initiatives also include the Bank’s partnership with Ant Financial to launch the world’s first blockchain-enabled cross-border remittance service from Hong Kong to the Philippines, as well as a collaboration with Siemens Financial Services and TradeIX, a digital trade provider, to create blockchain-based smart guarantees for trade finance. The bank has also invested in Ripple, a leading distributed ledger company. It is participating in regulator-led initiatives including Project Inthanon in Thailand led by the Central Bank of Thailand to develop a Central Bank Digital Currency; and Project Ubin led by Monetary Authority of Singapore to explore the use of distributed ledger technology for the clearance and settlement of payments and securities.

    เปิด 6 ขุมทรัพย์กองทัพ (และนายพล) หาเงินจากไหน ตั้งแต่อดีตจนปัจจุบัน

     Cache   

    นอกจากร้อง “อู้หูววววว” เวลาเห็นตัวเลขทรัพย์สินของนายพลทั้งหลาย บางคนแสดงความไม่พอใจแล้วจบ บางคนสืบเสาะถึงการได้ทรัพย์สินนั้นในระดับตัวบุคคล แต่สืบให้ตายก็คงสืบได้ไม่ครบ ประชาไทจึงชวนทำการวิเคราะห์กันในภาพใหญ่ถึง “เส้นทางเศรษฐี” ของกองทัพไทย ไล่กันตั้งแต่อดีตจนปัจจุบัน แม้มีการเปลี่ยนแปลงไปพอสมควร แต่ก็ยังเห็นร่องรอยเดิมชัดเจน ทั้งระบบงบประมาณและช่องทางอื่นที่หนังสือ “ทุนสีกากี” (Khaki Capital) ของพอล แชมเบอร์ รวบรวม

    “เป็นทหารได้อะไรมากกว่าที่คิด”

    นายพลผู้มั่งคั่งในการเมืองยุคปัจจุบัน

    เริ่มต้นด้วยการย้อนอดีตเบาๆ ในช่วงรัฐบาล คสช.

    สมาชิกสภานิติบัญญัติแห่งชาติ (สนช.) มีทหารชั้นนายพลทั้งที่เกษียณแล้วและยังทำงานอยู่ทั้งสิ้น 143 คนจากทั้งหมด 250 คน คิดเป็นร้อยละ 7.5-9.5 ของจำนวนนายพลทั้งประเทศ

    รายงานประจำปี 2558 ของคณะกรรมการป้องกันและปราบปรามการทุจริตแห่งชาติ (ป.ป.ช.) แสดงบัญชีทรัพย์สินของสมาชิก สนช.ที่ติดยศนายพล เรียงลำดับตามเหล่าทัพ บก-เรือ-อากาศ มีรายได้ต่อปีประมาณ 1.92 ล้านบาท 1.95 ล้านบาท  2.09 ล้านบาท แต่เมื่อดูสินทรัพย์รวมทั้งหมดของนายพล เรียงลำดับตามเหล่าทัพ บก- เรือ-อากาศ หลังหักหนี้สินแล้วพบว่ามีราว 5.8 พันล้านบาท 2.2 พันล้านบาท และ 1.2 พันล้านบาท

    บุตรและคู่ครองของนายพลเหล่านั้นก็มีความมั่งคั่งจนน่าอิจฉา สินทรัพย์รวมทั้งหมดของคู่สมรสมีทั้งสิ้น 2.7 พันล้าน นายพลที่ร่ำรวยที่สุดอันดับหนึ่งระบุว่าคู่ครองของเขาถือสินทรัพย์ทั้งสิ้น 720 ล้านบาทจากสินทรัพย์ที่ยื่นบัญชีรวม 802 ล้านบาท ทั้งนี้ร้อยละ 43 ของคู่สมรสที่มีฐานะร่ำรวยที่สุดระบุตัวเองว่ามีอาชีพเป็น “แม่บ้าน” ที่ไม่มีรายได้

    คำถามคือ ข้าราชการทหารที่เป็นข้าราชการมั่งคั่งขนาดนี้ได้อย่างไร บางส่วนอาจเป็นมรดก แล้วส่วนที่ไม่ใช่?? เราคงไม่ขุคคุ้ยกันเป็นรายบุคคล แต่จะชวนดูรายได้ของกองทัพโดยรวมซึ่งย่อมต้องเอื้อประโยชน์ให้แก่ผู้อยู่ในกองทัพ ตั้งแต่อดีตจนปัจจุบัน

    แน่นอนว่า การเข้ามามีอิทธิพลทางการเมืองและเศรษฐกิจของทหารโดยตรง เป็นช่องทางหนึ่งที่เราต่างเห็นเด่นชัด แต่เส้นทางเศรษฐี (ของทหาร) นั้นมีอีกหลายแบบ มันมีอะไรบ้าง ส่งผลต่อพัฒนาการประชาธิปไตยอย่างไร จะแก้ไขเงื่อนปมนี้อย่างไร เราอาจพบร่องรอยของคำตอบในรายงานพิเศษชิ้นนี้

    กระเป๋าที่ 1 งบประมาณ

    งบประมาณของกระทรวงกลาโหมเป็นงบก้อนใหญ่ที่เพิ่มขึ้นตลอดแทบทุกปี เรื่องนี้สัมพันธ์กับอำนาจของกงองทัพที่มีต่อรัฐบาลเช่นกัน ดังเช่นที่สุรชาติ บำรุงสุข นักวิชาการด้านความมั่นคงชี้ว่า งบกระทรวงกลาโหมไม่เคยถูกรัฐสภาตัดลดเลยตลอดประวัติศาสตร์ ยกเว้นครั้งเดียวในสมัยรัฐบาลชวน หลีกภัย ซึ่งในตอนท้ายก็มีการอนุมัติเพิ่มเติมอยู่ดี  

    หากดูงบประมาณปี 2563 แยกตามรายกระทรวง พบว่า กระทรวงกลาโหมได้รับจัดสรรมากสุดเป็นอันดับที่ 3 อยู่ที่ 233,353.4 ล้านบาท เพิ่มขึ้น 6,226.8 ล้านบาทจากปี 2562 (ข้อมูลเมื่อ 5 ก.ย. 2562)

    เมื่อแยกตามยุทธศาสตร์การจัดสรรงบประมาณ พบว่า ยุทธศาสตร์ด้านความมั่นคงได้รับการจัดสรรงบคิดเป็นสัดส่วนร้อยละ 13.4 ของงบประมาณทั้งหมดในปี 2563 โดยมีการจัดเรียงลำดับดังนี้

    1. การสร้างโอกาสและความเสมอภาคทางสังคม 7.66 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 23.9% ของงบทั้งหมด
    2. การพัฒนาและเสริมสร้างศักยภาพทรัพยากรมนุษย์ 5.7 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 17.9%
    3. การปรับสมดุลและพัฒนาระบบการบริหารจัดการภาครัฐ 5.04 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 15.8%
    4. ค่าดำเนินการภาครัฐ 4.31 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 13.5%
    5. ความมั่นคง 4.28 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 13.4%
    6. การสร้างความสามารถในการแข่งขัน 3.8 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 11.8%
    7. การสร้างการเติบโตบนคุณภาพชีวิตที่เป็นมิตรต่อสิ่งแวดล้อม 1.18 แสนล้านบาท หรือ 3.7%

    อิทธิพลกองทัพถดถอยลงช่วงสั้นๆ หลังเหตุการณ์พฤษภาฯ ทมิฬและวิกฤตเศรษฐกิจต้มยำกุ้งที่สภาพทางเศรษฐกิจบังคับให้ต้องปรับลดงบประมาณ  หลังรัฐประหารปี 2549 แนวโน้มงบประมาณกลาโหมก็เพิ่มขึ้นสูงอย่างมีนัยสำคัญ

    แล้วงบกลาโหมแต่ละปีเอาไปทำอะไรกันบ้าง? พ.ร.บ.งบประมาณรายจ่ายประจำปีงบประมาณ 2558 ซึ่งเป็นปีหลังรัฐประหารของ คสช.พบว่า งบกระทรวงกลาโหมและหน่วยงานในกำกับมีรายการรายจ่ายเป็นหมวดหมู่ ดังนี้ แผนงานสร้างความปรองดองสมานฉันท์ แผนงานดำเนินการตามกรอบข้อตกลงของประชาคมอาเซียน
    แผนงานเทิดทูน พิทักษ์และรักษาสถาบันพระมหากษัตริย์ แผนงานเสริมสร้างระบบป้องกันประเทศ แผนงานป้องกัน ปราบปราม และบำบัดรักษาผู้ติดยาเสพติด แผนงานแก้ไขปัญหาและพัฒนาจังหวัดชายแดนภาคใต้

    อย่างไรก็ดี คำถามตัวใหญ่และกระแสวิพากษ์วิจารณ์ที่หนักหน่วงที่สุด เห็นจะเป็นงบในการจัดหาอาวุธที่มักมีข้อครหาเรื่องความ(ไม่)จำเป็นและการคอร์รัปชัน เช่น

    กรณีซื้อเฮลิคอปเตอร์ AH-6i จากสหรัฐฯ กองทัพบกไทยมีดีลตั้งแต่ปี 2554 แต่เพิ่งได้รับอนุมัติขายจากกลาโหมสหรัฐฯ ในปี 2562 โดยไทยซื้อทั้งหมด 8 ลำพร้อมอาวุธและอุปกรณ์เสริม คิดเป็นเงิน 4.2 พันล้านบาท แต่ในปี 2557 เอกสารกระทรวงกลาโหมสหรัฐฯ ระบุว่าขายรุ่นเดียวกัน 24 ลำ (มากกว่าไทย 3 เท่า) พร้อมเครื่องมือสนับสนุนภาคพื้นดินให้กับกองทัพซาอุฯ  7.4 พันล้านบาท ทั้งนี้ยังไม่มีการชี้แจงรายละเอียดราคาอุปกรณ์ต่างๆ ปลีกย่อยทั้งในส่วนของกองทัพไทยและซาอุฯ

    กรณีการจัดซื้อ GT200 และ ALPHA6 ระหว่างปี 2548-2553 รวม 1,354 เครื่อง มูลค่า 1,135 ล้านบาท ต่อมาทดสอบแล้วว่า GT200 ใช้งานไม่ได้ ราคาในอังกฤษก็ต่างจากที่ขายให้กองทัพไทย 7 เท่า (200,000 บาท กับ 1,400,000 บาท) กระนั้น คนในกองทัพยังยืนยันว่า ใช้ได้! ขณะที่ผู้ผลิตและจัดจำหน่ายจากอังกฤษถูกลงโทษจำคุกในข้อหาฉ้อโกงไปแล้ว สำหรับในไทย มีเพียงผู้แทนจำหน่ายเท่านั้นที่ได้รับโทษจำคุก 9 ปี ชดใช้ค่าเสียหาย 6.8 ล้านบาท

    ภารกิจอันยิ่งใหญ่ มากับงบประมาณที่ใหญ่ยิ่ง

    การตั้งงบประมาณกินความออกมาถึงงานพลเรือนเป็นแดนสนธยาของสถาบันกองทัพ พวงทอง ภวัครพันธุ์ อาจารย์คณะรัฐศาสตร์ จุฬาฯ เขียนในบทความว่า ถ้าตัดงบประมาณส่วนที่ไม่เกี่ยวกับกิจการทหาร (อ้างอิงจาก พ.ร.บ.งบประมาณ 2561 และ 2562 ตามลำดับ) จะประหยัดงบได้อย่างน้อย 1,966.0142 ล้านบาทและ 1,564.5214 ล้านบาท นี่ยังไม่นับเงินที่สามารถประหยัดได้จากการลดจำนวนนายพลที่ปัจจุบันมีรวมกันหลักพัน (ในปี 2518 มียศ พลเอก เพียง 5 คน) เลิกการเกณฑ์ทหาร ลดการซื้ออาวุธ และอื่นๆ ที่อยู่ในภารกิจของ กอ.รมน. หน่วยงานกึ่งพลเรือน-ทหารซึ่งได้รับงบอยู่ปีละกว่า 10,000 ล้านบาท

    แล้วหน้าที่ครอบจักรวาลของกองทัพเช่นนี้เริ่มต้นจากไหน?

    งานชิ้นเดิมของพวงทองได้รวบรวมและเรียบเรียงมาว่า เดิมทีรัฐธรรมนูญปี 2475 (ฉบับแก้ไขปรับปรุงปี 2495) ระบุบทบาทของกองทัพในมาตรา 39 ว่า “รัฐต้องมีกำลังทหารไว้เพื่อรักษาเอกราชและประโยชน์แห่งประเทศชาติ” แต่ในปี 2517 ซึ่งตรงกับสมัยของรัฐบาลสัญญา ธรรมศักดิ์ ได้ขยายพันธกิจของกองทัพให้กว้างขวางขึ้น มาตรา 70 ระบุว่า 

    “กำลังทหารพึงใช้เพื่อการรบหรือการสงครามเพื่อปกป้องสถาบันพระมหากษัตริย์ เพื่อการปราบปรามการกบฏและการจลาจล เพื่อการรักษาความมั่นคงของรัฐและเพื่อการพัฒนาประเทศชาติ” และห้อยท้ายว่า การใช้ทหารเพื่อการอื่นให้เป็นไปตามบทบัญญัติแห่งกฎหมาย

    หน้าที่ของทหารข้างต้นเป็นต้นฉบับในการเขียนถึงหน้าที่ของกำลังทหารในรัฐธรรมนูญฉบับต่อๆ มา หลังจากนั้น ในแผนพัฒนาเศรษฐกิจและสังคมแห่งชาติฉบับที่ 4 ก็มีแนวคิด “การพัฒนาเพื่อความมั่นคง” เกิดขึ้นในบริบทสงครามเย็นที่กองทัพใช้โครงการพัฒนาต่างๆ เข้าไปแย่งชิงมวลชนและพื้นที่จากพรรคคอมมิวนิสต์แห่งประเทศไทย น่าประหลาดใจที่แผนพัฒนาเศรษฐกิจและสังคมแห่งชาติฉบับที่ 12 ในปัจจุบันก็ยังคงอ้างอิงพันธกิจของกองทัพอยู่เช่นนั้น

    กระเป๋าที่ 2 คลื่นความถี่

    คลื่นความถี่ที่ใช้ในการแพร่ภาพกระจายเสียงในระบบวิทยุ โทรทัศน์ แต่เดิมนั้นกองทัพเป็นเจ้าของเป็นส่วนใหญ่ และเอกชนต้องขอสัมปทาน ซึ่งเอื้อให้เกิดระบบอุปถัมภ์ 

    ข้อมูลเมื่อปี 2545 ระบุว่า กองทัพถือครองธุรกิจที่ใช้คลื่นความถี่จำนวนมาก ทั้งสถานีวิทยุโทศทัศน์กองทัพบกช่อง 5 ที่สัมปทานคลื่นความถี่ให้สถานีโทรทัศน์สีกองทัพบกช่อง 7 รวมถึงสถานีวิทยุ 245 แห่ง จากทั้งหมด 524 แห่ง

    เมื่อแยกการถือครองตามหน่วยงานจะพบว่า กองทัพบกถือครองอยู่ 127 สถานี กองทัพเรือ 21 สถานี กองทัพอากาศ 36 สถานี ตำรวจ 44 สถานี กระทรวงกลาโหม 3 สถานี กองบัญชาการสูงสุด 14 สถานี  ข้อมูลในปี 2557 พบว่า กองทัพยังถือครองคลื่นความถี่ทั้งแบบ AM และ FM รวม 201 สถานี 

    ในยุคทีวีดิจิทัลแบบปัจจุบัน กองทัพบกก็ยังมีแหล่งรายได้จากสถานีส่งสัญญาณหรือ MUX ที่ทีวีดิจิทัลจะต้องใช้เพื่อแพร่ภาพกระจายเสียงที่อยู่กับ ททบ.5 โดยมีค่าเช่าใช้ในรายการประเภทความคมชัดปกติ (SD) 3.5 ล้านบาท/เดือน และช่องประเภทความคมชัดสูง (HD) 10.5 ล้านบาท/เดือน

    ข้อมูลเมื่อ เม.ย. 2562 พบว่ามีช่องที่ใช้ MUX ของ ททบ.5 มีจำนวน 14 ช่อง ดังนี้

    • HD 5 ช่อง - ช่อง 7, อมรินทร์ทีวี, พีพีทีวี และช่อง 5
    • SD 9 ช่อง - เวิร์คพอยท์, โมโน, จีเอ็มเอ็ม 25, สปริง 26, เนชั่นทีวี, ทรูโฟร์ยู, ทีเอ็นเอ็น, นิวทีวี และไบรท์ทีวี

    เมื่อคำนวณตามอัตราข้างต้นจะพบว่า ททบ. 5 ได้เงินค่าเช่า MUX เดือนละ 84 ล้านบาท รายได้ดังกล่าวยังไม่นับรวมรายได้จากโฆษณา มีการรวบรวมข้อมูลว่า กสทช. เปลี่ยนให้ ททบ. 5 มีโฆษณาเฉลี่ยได้ชั่วโมงละไม่เกิน 12 นาที 30 วินาที จากเดิมชั่วโมงละ 8-10 นาที ถือเป็น “เสือนอนกิน” ที่หารายได้โดยไม่ต้องแข่งขันกับผู้ประกอบการรายอื่น

    หลังปี 2535 มีความพยายามปฏิรูปการจัดสรรทรัพยากรคลื่นความถี่ นำมาซึ่งมาตรา 40 ในรัฐธรรมนูญ 2540 ที่ให้คลื่นความถี่เป็นทรัพยากรสาธารณะ พร้อมให้มีการจัดตั้ง กสทช. องค์กรอิสระเพื่อจัดสรรคลื่นความถี่และกำกับดูแลการประกอบกิจการ ทีวี วิทยุ โทรคมนาคม โดย กสทช. ชุดแรกเข้ารับตำแหน่งเมื่อปี 2554 

    ในแผนแม่บทบริหารคลื่นความถี่ปี 2555 กสทช. วางแผนว่าจะต้องเรียกคืนคลื่นที่รัฐถือครองทั้งหมดภายในปี 2560 แต่ท้ายที่สุด รัฐบาล คสช. ก็ออกคำสั่ง คสช. ที่ 76/2559 ชะลอการเรียกคืนคลื่นความถี่วิทยุตามแผนแม่บทของ กสทช. และให้เลื่อนไปอีก 5 ปี

    ที่ผ่านมา หน่วยงานรัฐที่ต้องส่งคืนคลื่นล้วนมีท่าทีอิดออดและประวิงเวลา กองทัพบกเองก็มีท่าทีเช่นนั้นโดยอ้างเหตุผลด้าน ‘ความมั่นคง’ ดูได้จากแผนแม่บทของกองทัพบก ปี 2556–2560

    กระเป๋าที่ 3 บอร์ดรัฐวิสาหกิจ

    ทหารนั่งคณะกรรมการบริหาร (บอร์ด) บริษัทเอกชนและรัฐวิสาหกิจมานานแล้ว ในชิ้นงาน ความลับสาธารณะของไทย: ความมั่งคั่งของทหารและรัฐ โดยอุกฤษณ์ ปัทมานันท์และไมเคิล เค. คอนเนอร์ (2019) รวบรวมข้อมูลว่า สายสัมพันธ์ดังกล่าวเริ่มเห็นชัดในช่วงเผด็จการทหารและระบบราชการเป็นใหญ่ในปลายทศวรรษ 2480 ถึงต้นทศวรรษ 2510 ยุคแรกเริ่ม เจ้าสัวคนไทยเชื้อสายจีนมีปัญหาเรื่องการถูกเลือกปฏิบัติจึงมักเชิญนายทหารไปนั่งเป็นบอร์ด และถือหุ้นของบริษัทด้วยเพื่อแลกกับการคุ้มครองทางการเมือง เช่น ตระกูลค้าข้าวแบบหวั่งลีหรือตระกูลล่ำซำ ธนาคารศรีอยุธยาของตระกูลรัตนรักษ์ หรือธนาคารกรุงเทพฯ ของตระกูลโสภณพณิช 

    ในช่วงเวลาที่เป็นรัฐบาลเผด็จการทหารยาวนาน คนมีสีเหล่านั้นยิ่งสวมหมวกผู้บริหารหลายใบ

    พล.ต.อ.กฤษณ์ ศรีวราห์ และจอมพลประภาส จารุเสถียร นั่งเป็นผู้อำนวยการของบริษัทถึง 44 และ 50 บริษัทตามลำดับในช่วงปลายทศวรรษ 2500 จอมพลถนอม กิตติขจร และจอมพลสฤษดิ์ ธนะรัชต์ ก็ลงทุนในหลายธุรกิจ ถือหุ้นในหลายธนาคารและควบคุมรัฐวิสาหกิจตั้งแต่ 2490-2516

    หลังสฤษดิ์เสียชีวิตในปี 2506 จอมพลประภาส จารุเสถียร จอมพลถนอม กิตติขจร ซึ่งเป็นทหารในมุ้ง ‘สี่เสาเทเวศร์’ สืบทอดอิทธิพลในโลกธุรกิจต่อ กลุ่มสี่เสาฯ มีอิทธิพลในธุรกิจภาคการเงิน 12 แห่ง ภาคอุตสาหกรรม 15 แห่ง ภาคการค้าอีก 10 แห่ง ช่วงปี 2506 -2516 ถนอม-ณรงค์ กิตติขจร และประภาส เกี่ยวข้องกับบริษัทเอกชนถึง 137 แห่ง ประภาสเป็นกรรมการในบอร์ดธนาคารถึง 5 แห่ง ในขณะที่ถนอมผู้พ่อเป็นนายกฯ 

    ในปี 2559 งาน ทุนสีกากี: เศรษฐศาสตร์การเมืองว่าด้วยกองทัพในเอเชียตะวันออกเฉียงใต้ โดยนภิสา ไวฑูรเกียรติ และพอล แชมเบอร์ส นำเสนอว่ามีทหารอยู่ในบอร์ดอำนวยการรัฐวิสาหกิจถึง 42 แห่งจากทั้งหมด 56 แห่งที่ยังดำเนินกิจการอยู่ คิดเป็นจำนวนคนทั้งสิ้น 102 คน

    ล่าสุด ในปี 2562 เมื่อลองสืบค้นจากเว็บไซต์ของรัฐวิสาหกิจต่างๆ พบว่า ยังมีทหารนั่งเป็นกรรมการในบอร์ดอำนวยการทั้งสิ้น 51 คน ในรัฐวิสาหกิจ 27 แห่งจาก 55 แห่ง

    ในช่วงปี 2475-2531 ตำแหน่งที่นั่งทหารในบอร์ดรัฐวิสาหกิจถือว่าเป็นโควต้าที่มีการแบ่งเอาไว้แล้ว ทหารที่นั่งบอร์ดจะมีรายได้จากการเป็นกรรมการ สัดส่วนทหารในรัฐวิสาหกิจและบอร์ดบริษัทเอกชนต่างๆ มีแนวโน้มลดลงเรื่อยๆ หลังวิกฤตเศรษฐกิจปี 2540 ซึ่งมีที่มาส่วนหนึ่งจากระบบทุนนิยมอุปถัมภ์พวกพ้องและความไม่โปร่งใส จนภาคการเงินและธุรกิจต้องแก้ไขปัญหาดังกล่าวด้วยการทำระบบบอร์ดบริหารให้เป็นอิสระมากขึ้น ทหารที่ยังเหลืออยู่ในบอร์ดรัฐวิสาหกิจต่างๆ จึงมักมีตำแหน่งเป็น “กรรมการอิสระ”

    กระเป๋าที่ 4 เรียกค่าคุ้มครอง

    ทุนสีกากี ยังระบุถึงบทบาทและการหารายได้ของกองทัพจากการทำหน้าที่การอำนวยความสะดวกการค้าแบบเทาๆ ไม่เป็นทางการด้วย

    กรณีที่เพิ่งเกิดขึ้นไม่นานคือ พล.ท.มนัส คงแป้น จำเลยที่ 54 ผอ.กอ.รมน. ภาค 4 ส่วนแยกที่ 1 ระนอง ที่มีส่วนรู้เห็น เกี่ยวข้อง ช่วยเหลือและได้รับประโยชน์จากการลักลอบค้ามนุษย์ชาวโรฮิงญาในช่วงปี 2555 โดยในปี 2560 มนัสถูกศาลตัดสินจำคุก 27 ปี

    ก่อนหน้านี้ ในช่วงทศวรรษ 2493 กองทัพไทยเริ่มเข้าไปมีเอี่ยวกับธุรกิจค้าฝิ่นและเฮโรอีนทางชายแดนภาคเหนือ ปี 2486 รัฐบาลจอมพล ป. พิบูลสงคราม เริ่มเปิดช่องทางสื่อสารระหว่างกองพลที่ 93 ของกองทัพก๊กมินตั๋งของจีนกับกองกำลังมณฑลพายัพของไทย และเริ่มช่วยเหลือขนส่งฝิ่นจากมณฑลยูนนานผ่านทางพม่าเข้ามาในไทย จนกระทั่งสิ้นสุดสงครามโลกครั้งที่ 2 จึงได้แยกทางกันในปี 2488 แล้วกลับมาร่วมงานกันอีกครั้งหลังรัฐประหาร 2490 โดยจอมพลผิน ชุณหะวัน ในปี 2506 กองทัพไทยยังคงอำนวยความสะดวกในการขนส่งยาเสพติดของกองกำลังก๊กมินตั๋งเพื่อแลกเปลี่ยนกับบริการต่อต้านกลุ่มคอมมิวนิสต์

    ในช่วงเดียวกับสงครามคอมมิวนิสต์ การรัฐประหาร 2500 และ 2501 โดยจอมพลสฤษดิ์ เป็นจุดที่ทำให้สฤษดิ์มีอิทธิพลเต็มเหนือธุรกิจการลักลอบค้ายาเสพติดต่อจาก พล.ต.อ.เผ่า ศรียานนท์ จากนั้น งบประมาณของกองทัพส่วนหนึ่งมาจากการสนับสนุนของสหรัฐฯ ในฐานะพันธมิตรสำคัญในช่วงสงครามเย็น

    กองทัพกับธุรกิจค้ายายังดำรงต่อมาบนภาวะต่างตอบแทน ในปี 2520 เกรียงศักดิ์ ชมะนันต์ นายกฯ ที่มาจากการแต่งตั้งของคณะปฏิวัติหลังเหตุการณ์ 6 ต.ค. 2519 ก็ให้กองกำลังแนวร่วมฉาน (Shan United Army) ที่นำโดยขุนส่า ขุนศึกบริเวณชายแดนไทย-พม่าขนเฮโรอีนเข้าไทย แลกกับการช่วยต่อต้านพรรคคอมมิวนิสต์พม่า ความสัมพันธ์ดังกล่าวค่อยๆ โรยราในยุครัฐบาล พล.อ.เปรม ติณสูลานนท์ ขุนส่าย้ายฐานปฏิบัติการไปอยู่ในพม่าในปี 2525

    พื้นที่บริเวณชายแดนประเทศเพื่อนบ้าน เป็นเขตที่กองทัพไทยใช้หาประโยชน์ทางธุรกิจมายาวนาน หลักฐานมีปรากฏในปี 2522 ที่เขตแดนไทย-กัมพูชา หลังกองทัพเวียดนามเข้ายึดครองกรุงพนมเปญ ยึดอำนาจจากรัฐบาลพรรคคอมมิวนิสต์กัมพูชาหรือเขมรแดง ท่ามกลางกระแสความหวาดกลัวการรุกคืบของเวียดนาม กองทัพไทยจัดตั้งหน่วยพิเศษขึ้นมาให้ความช่วยเหลือและฝึกฝนผู้ที่ต่อต้านเวียดนาม หน่วยรบพิเศษ 315 จัดส่งอาวุธและการช่วยเหลือต่างๆ ให้กับเขมรแดง ในขณะที่หน่วย 838 ทำหน้าที่ร่วมงานกับเขมรแดงโดยตรง และกองกำลังเฉพาะกิจ 80 ของกองบัญชาการสูงสุดทำหน้าที่รวมกลุ่มต่อต้านเวียดนามให้เป็นกลุ่มก้อน 

    แนวทางปฏิบัติการของกองทัพไทยในตอนนั้นสวนทางกับท่าทีของรัฐบาลที่ตอนนั้นนำโดยชวน หลีกภัย และ พล.อ.วิมล วงศ์วานิช ผบ.ทบ. ที่ตีตัวออกห่างจากกลุ่มเขมรแดง ในปี 2536 สื่อนิวยอร์กไทม์นำเสนอเรื่องราวกิจกรรมของกองทัพไทยกับกลุ่มเขมรแดงที่บริเวณชายแดนว่ามีทั้งการสนับสนุนกลุ่มเขมรแดงในด้านที่อยู่อาศัย การช่วยเหลือด้านมนุษยธรรม การขนย้ายลำเลียงไปจนถึงอาวุธ ข่าวชิ้นเดียวกันยังรายงานว่าธนาคารไทยอาจมีเงินของเขมรแดงอยู่ถึงหลายสิบล้านดอลลาร์สหรัฐฯ และธนาคารไทยยังทำตัวเป็นช่องทางในการส่งเงินต่อไปยังธนาคารในสวิตเซอร์แลนด์และหมู่เกาะในทะเลแคริบเบียนด้วย

    งานศึกษาของแชมเบอร์สและคณะยังระบุว่า นอกจากความร่วมมือทางทหารแล้ว กองทัพไทยยังได้นำงบประมาณสนับสนุนที่ได้จากสหรัฐฯ มาช่วยเหลือกลุ่มก่อความไม่สงบจากกัมพูชา มิหนำซ้ำยังมีรายงานว่าตำรวจกับทหารไทยมีการร่วมทุนกับเขมรแดงในธุรกิจข้ามแดนทั้งการค้าไม้ พลอย รถ และสินค้าอื่นๆ มูลค่าการค้าต่อปีในช่วงทศวรรษ 2530 มีมูลค่าถึง 120 ล้านดอลลาร์สหรัฐฯ  โดยรายได้ที่ได้จะหักเข้าหน่วยทหารที่คุ้มกันชายแดนร้อยละ 10 ก่อนจะแบ่งกันระหว่างนักธุรกิจไทยและกลุ่มเขมรแดงฝ่ายละครึ่งหนึ่ง ทั้งนี้ ไม้และพลอยเป็นแหล่งรายได้ของกลุ่มเขมรแดงที่ให้กลุ่มทุนไทยซื้อสัมปทาน นักธุรกิจข้ามแดนเล่าว่า ในการขนส่งลำเลียงสินค้าข้ามแดนเข้าไทย จะต้องจ่ายเงินค่าผ่านทางให้กับหน่วย 838 สำหรับราคานั้น ไม้ 1 ลูกบาศก์เมตรจะมีราคาค่าผ่านทาง 1.50 ดอลลาร์สหรัฐฯ

    ในช่วงนั้น บทบาทของ พล.ร.2 รอ. หรือ ‘บูรพาพยัคฆ์’ เป็นที่มองเห็นในแวดวงธุรกิจพื้นที่ชายแดนภาคตะวันออก กลุ่มบูรพาพยัคฆ์ในช่วงนั้นทำงานสนับสนุนกับกลุ่มต่อต้านเวียดนามและเขมรแดง หน่วยทหารดังกล่าวได้ผลิตตัวละครสำคัญทางการเมืองขึ้นมาหลายคนในช่วงนั้น ได้แก่ เชษฐา ฐานะจาโร (ต่อมาเป็น รมว.กลาโหม) ชัยณรงค์ หนุนภักดี (ต่อมาเป็นแม่ทัพภาคที่ 1) ประวิตร วงษ์สุวรรณ (ต่อมาเป็น รมว.กลาโหม และรองนายกฯ) อนุพงศ์ เผ่าจินดา (ต่อมาเป็น รมว.มหาดไทย) ประยุทธ์ จันทร์โอชา(ต่อมาเป็น ผบ.ทบ. หัวหน้าคณะรัฐประหาร และนายกฯ) อุดมเดช สีตบุตร (ต่อมาเป็นเลขาธิการ คสช.) และ  ธีรชัย นาควานิช (ต่อมาเป็นองคมนตรี และ สนช.) การสนับสนุนกลุ่มเขมรแดงได้สร้างความมั่งคั่งให้กับนายทหารหลายคนทั้งในกลุ่มบูรพาพยัคฆ์และนายทหารเกษียณราชการคนอื่นๆ ก่อนอิทธิพลของกองทัพและนายทหารอาวุโสบางคนจะค่อยๆ ถูกลดทอนลงเมื่อถูกวิกฤตเศรษฐกิจต้มยำกุ้งบีบคั้นให้มีการปรับโครงกสร้างองค์กรในกองทัพ

    กระเป๋าที่ 5 บริษัทเอกชน/ มูลนิธิ 

    กองทัพมีที่ทางในธุรกิจที่เป็นทางการและมูลนิธิที่เป็นบ่อบ่มเพาะรายได้และสายสัมพันธ์ทางการเมือง ที่เห็นได้ชัดก็คือสนามมวยลุมพินี เวทีมวยชื่อดัง ที่คณะกรรมการบอร์ดบริหารทั้งหมด 15 คน เป็นทหารทั้งหมด นำโดย พล.อ.อภิรัชต์ คงสมพงษ์ ผบ.ทบ. คนปัจจุบัน ที่เคยเป็นประธานคณะกรรมการสำนักงานสลากกินแบ่งรัฐบาล (กองสลาก) 

    สโมสรฟุตบอล อาร์มี่ ยูไนเต็ด เดิมชื่อสโมสรกีฬากองทัพบก ก่อตั้งเมื่อปี 2459 (เปลี่ยนชื่อเมื่อปี 2553) เดิมเป็นทีมฟุตบอลที่มุ่งใช้นักเตะในกองทัพเป็นหลัก เป็นพื้นที่ให้กำลังพลออกกำลังกาย ต่อมาเปลี่ยนเป็นการดำเนินการเชิงพาณิชย์มากขึ้นท่ามกลางกระแสฟุตบอล “ไทยลีกฟีเวอร์” โดยมีสนามเหย้าเป็นสนามกีฬากองทัพบก ทางกองทัพได้รับรายได้จากส่วนแบ่งยอดขายตั๋วและรายได้จากโฆษณา ปัจจุบันมี พล.อ.อภิรัชต์ ดำรงตำแหน่งประธานสโมสร พล.อ.เฉลิมพล ศรีสวัสดิ์ ผู้ทรงคุณวุฒิพิเศษกองทัพบก เป็นผู้จัดการสโมสร และ พล.ต.พลตรี ธนาธิป  สว่างแสง โฆษก กอ.รมน. เป็นผู้จัดการทั่วไป 

    ธนาคารทหารไทยเป็นอีกหนึ่งที่ที่มีประวัติศาสตร์การเป็นที่ทางหารายได้ของกองทัพ ธนาคารเริ่มดำเนินกิจการในปี 2500 ในรัฐบาลจอมพลสฤษดิ์ ธนะรัชต์ จดทะเบียนในปี 2499 โดยมีเหตุผลว่า กองทัพต้องการมีธนาคารเพื่อทำธุรกรรมต่างๆ รวมทั้งการชำระเงินในการซื้อขายอาวุธ 

    ธนาคารทหารไทยเข้าสู่ตลาดหลักทรัพย์ในปี 2526 โดยในตอนนั้น สัดส่วนใหญ่ของการถือหุ้นในธนาคารทหารไทยยังเป็นกองทัพไทยร้อยละ 35-36 เป็นเช่นนั้นจนถึงกลางทศวรรษ 2000 ที่นั่งในคณะกรรมการเคยถูกสงวนให้กับนายทหารอาวุโสซึ่งไม่มีประสบการณ์ด้านการทำธุรกิจธนาคาร นิตยสารผู้จัดการ เคยรายงานในปี 2535 ว่าธนาคารทหารไทยเป็นแหล่งทรัพยากรเศรษฐกิจขนาดใหญ่ของกองทัพ ที่คำนวณแค่เงินปันผลในระยะ 7 ปีก่อนหน้านั้นก็มีมูลค่าไม่ต่ำกว่า 1 พันล้านบาท นอกจากนั้นยังมีการใช้เส้นสายกันกับลูกหลานของทหารหลายนายที่ทำงานอยู่ในธนาคาร

    สัดส่วนการถือหุ้นของกองทัพและที่นั่งในคณะกรรมการค่อยๆ ลดลงเรื่อยๆ ในช่วงวิกฤตเศรษฐกิจ 2540 ที่นำมาซึ่งการปฏิรูป ปรับโครงสร้างองค์กรเพื่อดึงดูดนักลงทุนต่างชาติ ในปี 2546 มีทหารนั่งอยู่ในคณะกรรมการ 5 จาก 14 ตำแหน่ง และค่อยๆ ปรับลดลงมาทุกปี จนตอนนี้เหลือ 1 จากทั้งหมด 12 ตำแหน่ง คือ พล.อ.ณัฐพล นาคพาณิชย์ รอง ผบ.ทบ. และอดีตผู้ช่วยเลขาธิการ คสช.

    ในระดับมูลนิธิ ที่ชัดเจนคือมูลนิธิอนุรักษ์ป่ารอยต่อ 5 จังหวัด มูลนิธิที่ดูแลผืนป่าขนาด 1.2 ล้านไร่ใน จ.ชลบุรี ฉะเชิงเทรา จันทบุรี ระยอง และสระแก้ว ที่ก่อตั้งเมื่อปี 2549 เพื่อสนองพระราชเสาวนีย์ของสมเด็จพระนางเจ้าสิริกิตติ์ เรื่องการให้หน่วยงานราชการทหารและพลเรือนช่วยดูแลป่าไม้และน้ำในพื้นที่ป่ารอยต่อ 5 จังหวัดและป่าเขาใหญ่ 

    ปัจจุบัน มูลนิธิฯ มี พล.อ.ประยุทธ์ จันทร์โอชา นายกฯ และอดีตหัวหน้า คสช. เป็นประธานกิตติมศักดิ์ พล.อ.ประวิตร วงษ์สุวรรณเป็นประธานมูลนิธิ และมีเจริญ สิริวัฒนภักดี ประธานคณะกรรมการบริหารของเครือไทยเบฟเวอเรจเป็นที่ปรึกษากิตติมศักดิ์ และมีนายทหาร 19 นายเป็นกรรมการจากทั้งคณะกรรมการจำนวน 24 คน ในที่นี้มีชื่อที่คุ้นหูได้แก่ พล.อ.อนุพงศ์ เผ่าจินดา รมว.กระทรวงมหาดไทย พล.อ.ธีรชัย นาควานิช อดีตองคมนตรี

    มูลนิธิกลายเป็นพื้นที่ที่ระบบอุปถัมภ์กันระหว่างทหารและกลุ่มทุน ยกตัวอย่างเช่น พล.อ.พัฑฒะนะ พุธานานนท์ อดีตรอง ผบ.ทบ. ที่ปัจจุบันเป็นผู้บริหารบริษัทไทยเบฟฯ และเป็นรองประธานมูลนิธิป่ารอยต่อฯ ได้เป็นตัวแทนไทยเบฟฯ บริจาคเงินให้กับมูลนิธิฯ จำนวน 2 ล้านบาท นอกจากนั้นยังมีบริษัทเอกชนและรัฐวิสาหกิจอีกหลายแห่งที่บริจาคเงินให้กับมูลนิธิฯ

    กระเป๋าที่ 6 ที่ดิน

    ข้อมูลเมื่อปี 2558 จากงานวิจัยของวิทยาลัยกองทัพบกระบุว่า กองทัพบกมีกรรมสิทธิ์ที่ดินราว 460,000 ไร่ และมีที่ดินที่ครอบครองโดยไม่มีกรรมสิทธิ์มากกว่า 4 ล้านไร่ซึ่งจำแนกได้เป็นที่ดินสงวนและที่ดินหวงห้ามตามประมวลกฎหมายที่ดิน ที่ดินที่เช่าจากหน่วยงานอื่นหรือเอกชน  รวมทุกประเภทแล้วกองทัพบกมีที่ดินอยู่ในครอบครองประมาณ 5 ล้านไร่ จำนวนนี้ยังไม่รวมที่ดินของเหล่าทัพอื่น

    กานดา นาคน้อย: เศรษฐศาสตร์สามัญสำนึก 55 ปีทุนกองทัพไทย

    การหารายได้จากที่ดินของกองทัพมักเป็นไปในลักษณะการเก็บค่าเช่าจากการปล่อยให้หน่วยงานรัฐและเอกชนเช่าใช้ กานดา นาคน้อย ระบุไว้ในบทความเมื่อปี 2558 ว่า ที่ดินสาธารณะหลายแห่งถูกโอนกรรมสิทธิจากกรมป่าไม้ให้เป็นของกองทัพบกในยุครัฐบาลสฤษดิ์ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นที่ดินริมทะเลกว่าพันไร่ใน อ.สวนสน จ.ประจวบคีรีขันธ์ที่ต่อมาเปิดบริการเป็นธุรกิจโรงแรมและบริการ 

    กองทัพยังพัฒนาที่ดินบางส่วนให้เป็นสนามกอล์ฟและสนามกีฬากองทัพบก สนามกีฬากองทัพบกในบางจังหวัดได้รับใบอนุญาตให้ประกอบกิจการบ่อนพนันแข่งม้า กองทัพเรือมีการเปิดสนามกอล์ฟราชนาวี-พลูตาหลวง ใน จ.ชลบุรี และเก็บรายได้จากค่าใช้สนามและอื่นๆ

    ปัญหาอยู่ตรงไหน แก้ได้อย่างไร

    ปัญหาหลักของการหารายได้ของทหาร 6 กระเป๋านี้คือความไม่โปร่งใส พอล แชมเบอร์ ผู้ร่วมเขียน Khaki Capital กล่าวว่า ในช่วงรัฐประหารของ คสช. การหารายได้ของทหารถูกทำให้มีความมั่นคงยิ่งขึ้นด้วยนโยบายรัฐหลายประการ


              

    อรรถจักร์กับโซเชียลมีเดีย ว่าด้วยความหวาดระแวงต่อพื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่

     Cache   

    ผมขอเรียก อ.อรรถจักร์ ว่า อ.อรรถ ตามที่นักศึกษาเรียกกัน อ.อรรถ เป็นนักวิชาการที่รู้จักกันดีในแวดวงมนุษยศาสตร์ สังคมศาสตร์ ทั้งคอวิชาการและคอการเมืองต่างก็คุ้นกับชื่อนี้ นอกจากบทบาททางด้านวิชาการแล้ว งานจำนวนมากของอาจารย์ได้สนทนากับสังคมไทยมาอย่างต่อเนื่อง ผลงาน อ.อรรถ ในหนังสือ และงานวิจัยต่างๆ ตั้งแต่ทศวรรษ 2530 ถึงปัจจุบัน รวมถึงบทความในหน้าหนังสือพิมพ์ที่ตีพิมพ์สม่ำเสมอในกรุงเทพธุรกิจ รายสัปดาห์ ด้วยความเชื่อมั่นในคนตัวเล็กตัวน้อย อ.อรรถยังมีบทบาทสนับสนุนความเคลื่อนไหวของการเมืองภาคประชาชน ประวัติศาสตร์ท้องถิ่นไม่น้อย พื้นที่ที่ อ.อรรถใส่ใจนอกจากมิติทางเศรษฐกิจและการเมืองแล้ว อีกส่วนสำคัญก็คือ การให้ความสำคัญกับการอธิบายความเปลี่ยนแปลงทางสังคม ในที่นี้ผู้เขียนสนใจจะกล่าวถึง อ.อรรถในฐานะผู้ชี้ทางให้สนใจเรื่อง "พื้นที่ทางสังคม" (social space) สมัยทำวิทยานิพนธ์ระดับปริญญาโท ด้วยการแนะนำให้อ่าน The production of space[2] ของ Henri Lefebvre ที่ชวนให้เราคิดถึงความสัมพันธ์ในพื้นที่เชิงสังคม พื้นที่มิได้เป็นเพียงภาชนะที่ว่างเปล่า หรือรูปทรงเรขาคณิตที่ไม่มีปฏิสัมพันธ์ภายใน

     

    พื้นที่ทางสังคม กับ อ.อรรถ

    หลังการต่อสู้ทางอุดมการณ์แบบเดิมจบลงกลางทศวรรษ 2520 คำอธิบายเชิงโครงสร้างทางการเมืองและเศรษฐกิจแบบเดิมระหว่าง "โลกเสรี" กับ "ค่ายคอมมิวนิสต์" แบบเคร่งคัมภีร์ได้ทำให้สังคมที่หลากหลายถูกละเลยไปด้วย แนวโน้มการคืนเสียง คืนอำนาจให้กับสังคมขยายตัวขึ้นเรื่อยๆ หลังทศวรรษ 2520 และแจ่มชัดขึ้นในทศวรรษ 2530 และมีหมุดหมายสำคัญอย่างยิ่งในสังคมไทยช่วงการร่างรัฐธรรมนูญปี 2540 การเมืองภาคประชาชนเป็นที่สนใจและรับรู้กันในวงกว้าง และค่อยๆ เข้ามาแทนที่การเมืองแบบชนชั้นนำ การเมืองที่ต้องติดตามข่าวว่าทหารจะทำการรัฐประหารหรือไม่

    ใต้บริบทนี้เองที่ทำให้ตำแหน่งแห่งที่ของ อ.อรรถ ได้ผูกโยงตัวเองไปกับพื้นที่ทางสังคมชนิดนี้ไปด้วย งานเขียนของ อ.อรรถมีจุดยืนในการคืนอำนาจให้กับคนในพื้นที่ต่างๆ เช่น นิเวศประวัติศาสตร์ : พรมแดนความรู้[3], ภาพรวมงานพัฒนาขององค์กรพัฒนาเอกชนภาคเหนือ ทางเดินและทางเลือกขององค์กรประชาชน[4], วิวัฒนาการของชุมชนแออัดและองค์กรชุมชนแออัดในเมือง กรณีศึกษาเมืองเชียงใหม่[5], ประวัติศาสตร์เพื่อชุมชน : ทิศทางใหม่ของการศึกษาประวัติศาสตร์[6] แสดงให้เห็นจุดยืนของ อ.อรรถที่มีต่อแวดวงการต่อสู้ภาคประชาชนและคนตัวเล็กตัวน้อย ทั้งในเขตป่าเขา ชนบทและในเมืองที่เน้นการเสริมพลังให้กับผู้ไร้อำนาจที่ถูกเบียดเบียนด้วยโครงสร้างรัฐและทุน ขบวนความคิดเหล่านี้ อ.อรรถมิได้โดดเดี่ยว แต่เดินทางร่วมไปกับมิตรสหายอย่างเพื่อนพ้องอาจารย์ในกลุ่มมหาวิทยาลัยเที่ยงคืนที่มี อ.นิธิ เอียวศรีวงศ์เป็นหัวเรือใหญ่ในช่วงต้นทศวรรษ 2540    

    น่าจะเป็นเพราะ อ.อรรถได้สัมพันธ์กับนักวิชาการญี่ปุ่นสายไทยศึกษาและมีโอกาสได้เรียนต่อระดับปริญญาเอกที่ญี่ปุ่น จึงพบว่า อ.อรรถยังได้ให้ความสำคัญกับการอธิบาย "สังคม" ญี่ปุ่นเพื่อความรู้และเข้าใจในฐานะกระจกส่องสังคมไทยไปด้วย ไม่แปลกว่างาน Japanization[7] นั้น ดูไม่เข้าพวกที่สุดกับงานเขียนทุกชนิดที่เกิดขึ้น แม้จะเป็นหนังสือเล่มเล็กๆ แต่ก็พบว่า อ.อรรถพยายามเข้าใจญี่ปุ่นอันเป็นสังคมชนชั้นกลางขนาดใหญ่ผ่านประวัติศาสตร์ เศรษฐกิจ การเมืองและสังคม โดยเฉพาะในบท "สังคมญี่ปุ่น" ที่ได้พยายายามอธิบายถึงสังคมแบบทุนนิยมที่มีลักษณะเฉพาะเพราะเน้นความสำคัญของ "กลุ่ม" ไม่ใช่ปัจเจก[8]

    คอลัมน์ ใต้กระแส ในหนังสือพิมพ์กรุงเทพธุรกิจ เป็นพื้นที่บทความขนาดสั้นของ อ.อรรถในรายสัปดาห์ ผู้เขียนเห็นว่าเป็นช่องทางในการนำเสนอเรื่องราวสังคมในชีวิตประจำวันจากความช่างสังเกตของ อ.อรรถ ที่พบเจอในชีวิตประจำวัน ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการสนทนากับผู้คนไม่ว่าจะเป็นนักศึกษา เด็กปั๊ม หรือเจอคอนเซ็ปต์น่าสนใจหนังสือต่างๆ  หรืออาจกล่าวได้ว่า ผลผลิตจากคอลัมน์ดังกล่าวมาจากความสัมพันธ์ทางสังคมของ อ.อรรถนั่นเอง เช่น ข้อคิดเกี่ยวกับโซเชียลมีเดียที่ได้จากการสนทนากับนักศึกษา

    ความเปลี่ยนแปลงในงานเขียนของ อ.อรรถ ขยับเข้าสู่พื้นที่ใหม่ ในระยะสิบปีหลังมานี้ สัมพันธ์กับความเข้มข้นของการเมืองมวลชนที่ขยายตัวขึ้น และ ความเปลี่ยนแปลงของชนบทอย่างมหาศาล ก็ทำให้เกิดงานอย่างจะรักกันอย่างไรในเมื่อเรายังไม่เข้าใจกัน[9], "ประชาธิปไตย" คนไทยไม่เท่ากัน[10], ลืมตาอ้าปาก จาก "ชาวนา" สู่ "ผู้ประกอบการ"[11]  อย่างไรก็ตามทศวรรษที่ผ่านมานี้ นอกจากปฏิบัติการทางสังคมการเมืองและเศรษฐกิจที่เห็นกันอยู่ พบว่ามันมิได้มีพรมแดนอยู่ในพื้นที่สังคมแบบเดิมๆ ที่เห็นหน้าค่าตากันตัวเป็นๆ หรือรับสารผ่านสิ่งพิมพ์ตามขนบเท่านั้น แต่มันคือพื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่ นั่นคือ พื้นที่และตัวตนออนไลน์ ที่ทำให้เกิดการปรับเปลี่ยนความสัมพันธ์แบบใหม่ระหว่างผู้ส่งสารกับผู้รับสาร

    พื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่ พื้นที่และตัวตนออนไลน์

    แม้ว่า ผลงานของ อ.อรรถ มิได้จำกัดตัวอยู่ในแพลตฟอร์มของหนังสือพิมพ์ และหนังสือ แต่กลายเป็นตัวบทในเว็บไซต์ ยูทูป หรือเฟสบุ๊คก็ตาม แต่ก็นับได้ว่าผลงานของ อ.อรรถ โดยตัว อ.อรรถเอง แทบทั้งหมดล้วนเป็นการสื่อสารแบบเดิมที่เน้นการสื่อสารทางเดียว หากไม่นับการสนทนาในที่ประชุมแล้ว พบว่า ลักษณะการสื่อสารของ อ.อรรถ มีลักษณะเป็นผู้นำการพูด องค์ปาฐก แถลงการณ์เป็นหลัก

    จะว่าไปแล้วพื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่นี้เป็นที่ไม่ไว้วางใจของ อ.อรรถ ไม่น้อยดังที่เคยแสดงความเห็นไว้ในหลายวาระ ข้อสังเกตนี้นำมาสู่ความต้องการจะสำรวจความสัมพันธ์ระหว่าง อ.อรรถ กับ พื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่ ในโลกความจริงเสมือนอย่างโซเชียลมีเดีย

    หากเข้าใจไม่ผิด ยังไม่พบว่ามี account ทางโซเชียลมีเดีย ของ อ.อรรถ ไม่พบ account ใน Facebook หรือ twitter แน่นอนว่า อาจารย์มีสมาร์ทโฟนและแท็บเบล็ตไว้ใช้งานดังที่เห็นกันโดยทั่วไป การใช้เครื่องมือสื่อสารชนิดนี้อาจครอบคลุมการส่งอีเมล์ และ Line ส่วนตัวที่อาจารย์ใช้ติดต่อสื่อสารเป็นหลักที่น่าจะทำงานร่วมกับโทรศัพท์ จึงอาจกล่าวได้ว่า อ.อรรถ ได้รักษาระยะห่างระหว่างพื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบเดิม กับ พื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่ไว้อย่างชัดเจน

    ลักษณะดังกล่าวแตกต่างอย่างยิ่งกับอาจารย์ท่านอื่นที่กระโจนสู่โลกโซเชียลมีเดียและเป็นฐานที่มั่นสำคัญในการเผยแพร่แนวคิดทางวิชาการและการเมือง และใช้ในการประกาศจุดยืนและตอบโต้ทางวิชาการหรือการเมือง หรืออย่างน้อยก็ใช้เป็นช่องทางในการเผยแพร่ข้อมูล เช่น อ.สมศักดิ์ เจียมธีรสกุล, อ.เกษียร เตชะพีระ, อ.ธเนศ วงศ์ยานนาวา, อ.ยุกติ มุกดาวิจิตร, อ.พวงทอง ภวัครพันธุ์, อ.พิชญ์ พงษ์สวัสดิ์, อ.บุญเลิศ วิเศษปรีชา ฯลฯ อนึ่งบทบาทของโซเชียลมีเดียมีบทบาทเป็นอย่างยิ่งในช่วงความตึงเครียดทางการเมือง

    พื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่นี้สอดคล้องกับการอ่านแบบแบบ hypertext[12] ที่เป็นคุณสมบัติของโลกยุคดิจิตอลที่พร้อมจะทำให้เกิดการย้ายตัวบทไปสู่ตัวบทใหม่ๆ สถานะของ hypertext ไม่มีขั้นตอนว่าอะไรอยู่ในตำแหน่งที่สูงกว่า ไม่มีลำดับชั้น และมีลักษณะ "เสรีประชาธิปไตย" ในการอ่าน โดยเฉพาะช่วงหลังรัฐประหาร 2549 ที่เป็นรอยต่อสำคัญของการใช้แพลตฟอร์มแบบเดิม นั่นคือ เว็บบอร์ด ที่เห็นได้จากความคึกคักของผู้คนคอการเมืองในเว็บบอร์ดพันทิปห้องราชดำเนิน เว็บบอร์ดของมหาวิทยาลัยเที่ยงคืน เรื่อยมาจนถึงเว็บบอร์ดฟ้าเดียวกันที่ในเวลาต่อมาเปลี่ยนผ่านมาสู่ facebook ข้อจำกัดของเว็บบอร์ดคือมีลักษณะที่รวมศูนย์ข้อมูล หากถูกรัฐบาลสั่งปิดหรือบล็อกก็ไม่สามารถที่จะดำเนินการต่อได้ ยังไม่นับการเซ็นเซอร์ตัวเอง ขณะที่ facebook นั้นรัฐบาลยังไม่สามารถเข้าไปควบคุมได้ ปัจจัยสำคัญอีกด้านคือ ความนิยมการใช้ facebook ที่ก้าวกระโดดจากจำนวนผู้ใช้ราว 250,000 คนในเดือนมกราคม ปี 2552 ก้าวกระโดดมาแตะหลัก 2 ล้าน คนในปีถัดมา[13] จึงไม่แปลกอะไรที่ facebook จะเป็นแพลตฟอร์มสำคัญในการต่อสู้ทางการเมืองระหว่างรัฐบาลและประชาชนในช่วงปี 2552 และปี 2553 ข้อเท็จจริง ความจริง ความลวงถูกนำมาใช้เป็นเครื่องมือการเมืองอย่างเข้มข้นในแพลตฟอร์มนี้อย่างต่อเนื่องมาจนถึงปัจจุบัน

    อ.อรรถ กับ ท่าทีต่อโลกโซเชียลมีเดีย

    ก่อนหน้านี้ ไม่มีหลักฐานระบุชัดว่า อ.อรรถมีมุมมองเช่นไรกับโซเชียลมีเดีย (อาจเป็นเพราะไม่มีหลักฐานมาระบุมากกว่าที่จะสรุปว่า อ.อรรถไม่มีความเห็นใด) แต่พบว่าอย่างช้าในปี 2559 อ.อรรถ ได้กล่าวถึงแง่มุมของโลกโซเชียลในบทความชื่อว่า "โลกโซเชียล” กับ 'โรคซึมเศร้า' "[14] โดยชี้ให้เห็นถึงความสัมพันธ์ระหว่างโลกโซเชียลกับโรคซึมเศร้า โดยชี้ให้เห็นว่าโรคซึมเศร้ามิได้มีสาเหตุมาจากปัญหาทางชีววิทยาล้วนๆ แต่สัมพันธ์กับสภาพแวดล้อม สังคมรอบตัว อ.อรรถชี้ว่า ความสัมพันธ์ทางสังคมเปราะบางมากขึ้น ชีวิตผู้คนถูกทำให้แยกห่างกัน จนไม่สามารถจะสื่อสารกัน หรือสร้างสายใยสัมพันธ์ "กันอย่างแท้จริง" โลกโซเชียล ได้เข้ามาทดแทนด้านนี้ ขณะเดียวกัน โลกโซเชียลยังเป็นการแสดงความเป็นส่วนตัว และตัวตนที่อยากให้คนอื่นรับรู้และชื่นชม เป็นเพียงการ "ตัดส่วนเสี้ยวของชีวิตมาขยายให้กลายเป็นภาพที่อยากให้คนอื่นเห็น" นำไปสู่การหมกมุ่นอยู่กับความต้องการแสดงตน หากไม่ได้รับการตอบสนองว่าได้รับรู้และชื่นชมก็จะกระทบถึงความเป็นตัวตน อ.อรรถนำความเปลี่ยนแปลงระบบอารมณ์ของผู้คนไปเทียบกับการชมโทรทัศน์ที่เคยวิเคราะห์ในปี 2538 ว่าการเปลี่ยนช่องโดยรีโมท ทำให้เกิดความเปลี่ยนแปลงทางอารมณ์ในชั่วครู จากตลกเป็นกลัว เป็นความรู้สึกอื่นๆ เมื่อเทียบกับโลกโซเชียล ความรู้สึกนี้กับเปลี่ยนแปลงมากกว่าหลายร้อยพันเท่า ซึ่งนำมาสู่ความไร้เสถียรภาพทางอารมณ์ และนั่นก็คือส่งผลต่อสิ่งที่เรียกว่าโรคซึมเศร้าไปด้วย แม้ว่าในสังคมเศรษฐกิจทุนนิยมจะทำให้ปัจเจกรู้สึกว่าตนเองไร้คา แต่ความรู้สึกนี้จะแรงมากขึ้นเมื่อโลกเสมือนจริงทำให้ความรู้สึก "ไร้ค่า" กับ "มีค่า" เกิดขึ้นสลับกันไปมาอย่างรวดเร็วจนเราไม่สามารถมีเสถียรภาพ เมื่อควบคุมอารมณ์ความรู้สึกได้น้อยลงก็ส่งผต่อความหมายของความเป็นเรา หรือตัวตนก็จะถูกทำลายลงไป ซึ่งนี่คือสภาวะของโรคซึมเศร้า

    ปลายปี 2560 อ.อรรถยังมีบทความที่ชื่อ "ความเปราะบางของผู้คน"[15] ชี้ให้เห็นความเสื่อมโทรมของสังคมไทยที่มีผลต่อการปะทะกันทางอารมณ์ทุกมิติของชีวิต ความใส่ใจกับสายสัมพันธ์ทางสังคมของ อ.อรรถ ทำให้เขาชี้ว่า "ระบบความสัมพันธ์ทางสังคมของสังคมไทยล้มเหลวโดยสิ้นเชิง" ที่เสียงว่าทุกคนพร้อมจะระเบิดอารมณ์ของตนสู่คนข้างเคียงและคนอื่นๆ ได้ง่าย อ.อรรถยังกล่าวต่อว่า สังคมไทยไม่สามารถรู้สึกได้ถึง "พื้นที่ทางสังคม" ที่มีกฎเกณฑ์กลางอันไม่ควรล่วงละเมิดนำมาสู่การใช้ "ตัวตน" อย่าง "เสรี" (ที่หมายถึง ไม่สนใจต่อการรับผิดชอบใดๆ) นำไปสู่การหมกมุ่นแต่ตนเอง นำไปสู่การโอ้อวดตัวตน การบริโภคเพื่อแสดงสถานะ พื้นที่ทางสังคมในมุมมอง อ.อรรถ คือ พื้นที่กลางที่ผู้คนยอมรับกฎระเบียบในพื้นที่ ลักษณะนี้ทำให้ผู้เขียนนึกถึงงานเขียน อ.อรรถเกี่ยวกับญี่ปุ่นที่ให้ความสำคัญกับพื้นที่ทางสังคมเช่นนี้อยู่ด้วย ด้วยเหตุที่สังคมไทยไร้ "พื้นที่ทางสังคม" ในนิยามของ อ.อรรถ ทำให้คนหมกมุ่นกับตัวเอง ส่งผลต่อความเปราะบางของผู้คน เพราะไม่มีอะไรผ่อนคลายความรู้สึกที่อยากตอบสนองอารมณ์ส่วนตัว และเข้าใจว่าส่งผลต่อ "โรคซึมเศร้า" ที่สถิติทวีสูงขึ้น

    อาจกล่าวได้ว่า อ.อรรถมองสังคมไทยที่กำลังเปลี่ยนผ่านนี้คือ โลกดิสโทเปีย อันเนื่องมาจากความสัมพันธ์ทางสังคมที่แตกกระจายอันส่งผลกระทบต่ออารมณ์ความรู้สึกและตัวตนของมนุษย์ที่เป็นเหยื่อในสังคมที่ไร้พื้นที่ทางสังคมที่มีระเบียบกฎเกณฑ์ ขณะที่พื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่-โลกโซเชียลกลับทำให้มนุษย์ถลำลึกกับความหมกมุ่นในตัวตน อันนำไปสู่โรคซึมเศร้าที่มากขึ้นเรื่อยๆ  แต่มุมมองเช่นนี้ จะเป็นการมองว่ามนุษย์เป็นเหยื่อมากไปหรือไม่ มนุษย์เองเปราะบางจนไม่สามารถรับมือกับความเปลี่ยนแปลงเช่นนี้ได้จริงหรือ? อ.อรรถจักร์ อาจจะไม่เคยเห็น หรือติดตามชุมชนทางการเมืองใน Facebook, twitter ที่มีความคึกคักและความเปลี่ยนแปลงอย่างสูง ชุมชนการค้าออนไลน์ที่มีแพลตฟอร์มในโซเชียลมีเดีย ชุมชนอาสาสมัคร ชุมชนแฟนที่สร้างสรรค์วัฒนธรรมสมัยใหม่อีกหลากหลาย หรืออาจกล่าวได้ว่า ชุมชนในโลกโซเชียลมีเดียได้สร้าง "พื้นที่ทางสังคม" ชนิดใหม่ขึ้นมา

    การบรรยายในหัวข้อ “คนเล็กในโลกที่แปรปรวน” 17 สิงหาคม 2562 ณ คณะรัฐศาสตร์และสังคมศาสตร์ ม.พะเยา[16] ก็ได้ตอกย้ำข้อเสนอ อ.อรรถ ในเรื่องของการหมกมุ่นของตัวตน โลกโซเชียล และโรคซึมเศร้าอีกครั้ง เช่นเดียวกับล่าสุดที่ผู้เขียนมีโอกาสรับฟังผ่านวงเสวนา "ความเป็นภูมิภาค ความเป็นท้องถิ่น และตัวตนของมนุษย์ในโลกไร้พรมแดน" เวทีวิจัยมนุษยศาสตร์ไทย ครั้งที่ 13 วันที่ 6 กันยายน คณะมนุษยศาสตร์ มหาวิทยาลัยมหาสารคาม การอธิบายเรื่องเดียวกันที่เปลี่ยนแปลงน้อยมากในรอบ 3 ปี จึงทำให้คำอธิบายของ อ.อรรถ เกี่ยวกับโลกโซเชียลมิได้ทันกับพลวัตนี้เท่าที่ควรจะเป็น  

    อาจกล่าวได้ว่าในพื้นที่ทางสังคมแบบใหม่นี้ อ.อรรถ ได้มีระยะห่างในฐานะ user เช่นเดียวการห่างในเชิงประสบการณ์ตรงในการสนทนาสังสรรค์แบบ hypertext ชนบทที่เปลี่ยนไปตามนิยาม อ.อรรถ ก็มิได้เป็นชุมชนที่เคลื่อนไหวอยู่กับพื้นที่สังคมแบบเก่าแล้วปริมณฑลของ hypertext และโลกโซเชียลมีเดียอาจเป็นความท้าทายในพรมแดนใหม่ ในพื้นที่สังคมแบบใหม่ที่อาจต่อยอดออกไปก็ได้.

    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving

     Cache   
    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving is the largest and most encyclopedic book available for carvers who want to study all varieties of Thai carving in one convenient book. This carving book is unique in its complete coverage of presenting Thai food with exquisite carvings and it is essentially two books in one.

    Written by Thai fruit carving expert, Penpan Sittitrai, the first part of the book, Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving focuses entirely on step-by-step carving instructions, each with their own corresponding full-color photographs, detailed instructions, and sketched illustrations. Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

    In the second half of the book, Vegetable And Fruit Carving In Thai Food, traditional Thai recipes are artfully presented in more elaborate carved vessels, containers, bowls and platters (see list of recipes and carvings below). Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    All-in-all, this is a sizable compendium of the art of fruit and vegetable carving, filled with stunning pictures and detailed instructions. Written by one of the most respected Thai fruit carving artists in Thailand today, it is as elegant as it is useful, being an enduring favorite and a real treasure for any fruit carving enthusiast.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.

Chapters include: Introduction, Essential Ingredients, Pad Thai & Its Regional Variations, Phat Si-io & Other Fried, Noodles, Rat Na & Other Dishes, Noodles with Sauce, Rice Dishes and On Rice Dishes.

    Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.

    A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS

    A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS.
    by: Neneng R. Tarigan

    Friendship is a unique relationship that knows no difference, cultural or otherwise.~

    As bloggers, I think it is part of our obligation to promote our friends' blogs or their web sites in any possible way we can.
    Yes, I must admit, sometimes we feel reluctant because some of them are so unmindful even to leave a little comment on our posts; we feel bad about that. However, let us forget about their negative sides for a while and think what we can value and learn from our blogger friends who really have brilliant ideas to put in their blogs, sorts of stories and info that would make our lives as the readers much happier, knowledgeable and colorful.
    Let us just remember, how they have made our day full with laughter and curiosity with their intriguing writings, how they can turn our egoism down with their preaches and the wise words as well as poems that they have created or some had been quoted from famous people around the world, or the pictures and traveling experiences they shared with us in their blogs, their cooking recipes, their fashion ideas, their health tips, their amazing pictures, their gigs, their craziness, their cartoons, their love stories, their films, their talent as fortune tellers, their free money making machines, their skill as an IT experts, their gardening, their small agriculture expertise, their arts, their architecture, their free games and thousand others that could color our lives.
    This post is a tribute to that kind of friends I have. There are thousands of them, but let us check some of their links and find out why these people deserve a special tribute as friends, though most of them are non professional writers, photographers, film makers, but what they had produced would make us whispers: " Yes indeed, they are really good!"
    Here are some recommended links that I am sure you might share my view of their quality. Please take note that the row where I put the names of the bloggers does not represent the rank at all. You may also recommend me more links and categories to be add in this list, but that should not be the links belong to companies or organizations except your own company or organization; I am sure that will be interesting and fun as we could assume it as a little appreciation among us as real bloggers.
    I highly value your concern for spending your precious time to check for the links in this list. I wish our works as bloggers would contribute to a greater advantageous to many people around the globe; and most importantly, to create a better connection and to enable us as human beings to live in peace and harmony together.
    May God bless our works.
    Forever your friend, Neneng Tarigan - Indonesia.

    INCREDIBLE INDIA?

    INCREDIBLE INDIA?
    By: Neneng Tarigan
    BSD City, 7 September 2010.

    Visiting India especially the Taz Mahal is always in my dream. In my childhood we used to have calendars with pictures about interesting places all over the world. Watching the pictures I got the feeling as if I were living there once in the past, because those pictures seemed so close to my heart. Some pictures were about few places in my country but most of them were about interesting and historical places abroad. I wonder if reincarnation is a true story, but as a Christian I would rather trust, that was only because my heart and soul was extremely possessed by the beauty of the places and the history behind it, that was why I feel so close with the pictures. As it proved, I was lucky to have been visited more than 40 countries in the world.

    It was 09.00 pm when I landed at Indira Gandhi International, the new airport of New Delhi, India, on 30th  August 2010. The airport is huge and it has just been operational since early of August 2010. The size maybe equal to Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok and the floor was totally covered by wall to wall carpet like Changi airport of Singapore. The security check was so tight, may be it happens after India has a very bad experience with the Mumbai terrorist attack. (Mumbai is the second largest city of India)


    Upon arrival, I was fetched up by the Embassy people who then brought me with Toyota old van 1990 to Ramada Hotel which I booked through the internet. It took about 30 minutes from the airport to the hotel and my eyes caught by the glitter of the road studs. I also observed that many fully equipped military guards stand between the airport to the center of New Delhi. Later, I knew that they guarded the city day and night. Incredible!

    When I arrived, there were so many cars queuing at the hotel gate, a wedding party of the rich had taken place in the hotel, so I asked the driver to just drop me, so that we would not blocked other cars to get in.

    After passing the scanning machines, I went inside then submitted the hotel voucher and asked for the room. Unfortunately however, the receptionist told me that I was not registered in that hotel but to another Ramada Hotel in Gurgaon about 2 hours from Ramada Hotel New Delhi.

    I showed them that what was written on the voucher is clearly Ramada Gurgaon New Delhi, and since I had never been to India before, I presumed that the one I booked was totally correct, which is the one that I stand now; I had no idea, that there are two different Ramada hotel in Delhi. (Well, if they assumed that Gurgaon which is 2 hours from Delhi is also in Delhi)

    Feeling tired and sleepy, I then asked them whether I can simply move to this hotel instead of staying at the other Ramada in Gurgaon, of course with additional cost I don't mind. Again, according to the hotel management I can't do that, simply because the two Ramada is only the same hotel chain under the same franchise system and name, but different ownership. How incredible! They are very strict with the rule here, the cancellation meant that all of the booking cost for 4 days stay which I have already made with Ramada Gurgaon that cost USD 400.- will automatically deducted from my credit card and gone, if I stay in Ramada New Delhi! (Well, that is the rule)

    After long arguments, they advice me to use a hotel taxi to bring me to Ramada Gurgeon. I said: “Okay no problem, how much would the price be?” and then they said:”7000 rupees or about USD 170” I answered:”Well, that will be the problem, just get me another taxi not from this hotel.” They nodded, then I got an outside taxi with the price of only 900 rupees” Can you imagine the price different just in a minute? Well, that was incredible!

    After about one hour drive, I then arrived at Ramada Hotel Gurgaon. There the manager said: "You can't cancel your booking". So, I had to stay in that hotel for the 4 nights I booked in the first place. It was already 01.00 am. Feeling tired and disappointed, I could do nothing than to accept their policy. Here I am, in the middle of nowhere; I then called the embassy personnel to inform them the situation and where I am about. Of course the embassy staff offered me the transportation facility, but knowing the distance and the fact that I had already chartered a taxi for pick and drop during I stay in the hotel, I gently refuse the offer and ask them to only fetch and drop me when I was about going back to Indonesia later.

    Before sleeping, I asked the hotel manager for the free internet facility as they promoted in the web . We worked on it, and after one hour my laptop get connected with the internet, but with very low signal or meaning no connection at all! Another incredible story.

    Gurgaon itself is a new industrialized modern city in the outskirt of New Delhi. It will take only 45 to 90 minutes from Ramada Hotel Gurgaon to Ramada Hotel New Delhi, depends on the traffic. There will be a small metro train station located in front of the Ramada Gurgaon once it is finished in early 2011. The Ramada Gurgaon Hotel is a small 8 stories 3.5 star hotel, built about 2 years ago. It is a very clean hotel and with a very helpful and polite staff too. I had no complain at all about the hotel condition. It is a good hotel to stay, especially for businessmen or investors who have business in Gurgaon; and else the infrastructure facilities in India is good or at least better than in Indonesia, so almost every part of India is reachable.

    The next morning, I went to the meeting with the chartered taxi as recommended by the hotel manager. It was a small car with a Nepalis driver named Tapha who only speak a little English. No smile in his face, he seemed full with anger. he didn't even greet me a good morning but just drove and murmured, may be because I was a bit late for our appointment that morning.

    Arriving at the toll gate, Tapha asked me to pay 20 rupees for the toll. Getting furious, I sternly said to him: “You know what, why are you so impolite to your costumer? I supposed to pay only 800 rupees for pick and drop, but the manager then told me to add 500 rupees more, for toll , miles, parking and bla bla bla. I have already agreed about that and now with your long face you force me to pay more and more. Why don't you just check to the hotel manager?” He called and checked and then with grim he said: “Okay, okay”

    On the way to the meeting, I asked Tapha whether he can stop the taxi at Ramada Hotel Delhi, just to check, whether the meeting will be taken place at Ramada Delhi or Le Meridien. Actually they are at the same direction, and we could pass Ramada Delhi before Le Meridien, however he said: “No, no, no, miles, miles, miles”. “Okay” I said: “no problem, just drop me at Le Meridien”. (Ghost, it was incredible!)

    At Le Meridien, I check, whether the venue of the meeting is in their hotel or in Ramada Delhi. They politely check and inform me that, it is not in their hotel, so I phoned the committee and they told me that the venue is at Ramada Delhi.

    From Le Meridien I walked about 3 minutes to Ramada Delhi, because the two hotels are very closed by. The problem is, no one at Ramada Delhi knows where the meeting would take place when I asked them at the night when I firstly arrived where the meeting would be. (Another incredible story!)

    In the afternoon, I called the manager of Ramada Gurgaon to ask Tapha to fetch me at 05.30 pm; and there Tapha came with a man whom he called his body guard. They both have very strong sweating smell which made me almost choked to death. I just sat quietly till I arrived at Ramada Gurgaon and paid Tapha 1300 rupees (+ USD 32) for the transportation I made with him that day.

    The next morning, Tapha was totally 100% changed. He came alone and became so very polite and full with smile. He asked me to talk to his wife who is Indian and has two master degree and of course she speaks very fluent English much better than me. After talking in the phone to his wife then I chat with Tapha and from his broken English I knew that he has one beautiful 9 years old daughter and 3 of his siblings married to different nationalities such as married to a Malaysian, a Kuwaiti, a Saudi Arabian and he himself married to a beautiful and smart Indian lady. Well, that was really a beautiful incredible story.

    Along the way back from Ramada Delhi to Ramada Gurgaon I sang along with Tapha a beautiful Indian song entitled Kuch-Kuch Hota Hae which is originally sung by a famous Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan. It was like an ice breaking song that we both enjoy. We sang and dance along the way and every car just looked at us dancing and singing and beep us to be careful because we disturbed other cars to pass by.

    It was a pity because the next day, I had to go with the embassy van to visit the famous Taz Mahal, and the day after that I had to go back to my beautiful country Indonesia. So no more Tapha.

    It takes 4 hours to go to the Taz Mahal from Ramada Gurgeon. I had to pay about 12,000.- rupees (+USD 300.-) if I use the hotel taxi (not Tapha taxi), or I pay only USD 75.- per person if I use tourist bus, that is already included lunch and entrance tickets. With the embassy car the two of us (me and my colleague) pay only USD 150.- for the tip, since 2nd September was a holiday in all over India as they celebrating the Khrisna day.

    Along the way to Taz Mahal, we pass by the country sides. They are all green but also dusty and rocky. The Northern parts of India are quite dusty because they are close to Gobi desert, one of the largest desert in the world. Sometimes, we can see sky scrapers enacted in the middle of nowhere. The way they built them there were to create equal distribution of wealth across the states.

    Not many houses exist along the way. With 1.2 million people, India seems so quiet. Most Indians seems tend to live in the cities rather than in the country sides. Well that is my observation at glance and that may not be 100% correct. (*PS: Later I found from my Indian friend that only + 35% Indians living in the cities)

    The road to Agra is full with trucks. Well, I am sorry to say that most of the trucks or vehicles in India seemed old but still work well. The bus there all surrounded by concrete bars, so it seems like a jail bus to me, but they say it was because India has a large poor population and the majority of them use buses as main transportation, so in order to avoid them from falling out of the bus, they put bars in all of the windows, so that they would be more secure inside. The famous public vehicle is the three wheels Bajaj. (We also have Bajaj in Indonesia, as one of our public transportation in the cities. We imported a lot from India, but the size of the Indonesian Bajaj is smaller than the Indian one). What amazed me is the Indian Bajaj fit for 12 persons and still moving, whereas in Indonesia may be for 6 or 7 person can fully pack in one roof. Wow, another incredible story!

    Agra is one of the cities in Uttar Pradesh (UP) state of India. UP has about 130 million people, who live in trade, crafting, agriculture and mining. The majority of Agra people is Moslem, but they seem so poor, or at least that was I observed along the way. The Taz Mahal built by King Shah Jahan (a Moslem King) in 17 century as a dedication to his most beloved queen Mumtaz. (The King himself has + 200 wives, according to our driver). Incredible! It took 22 years to build such a magnificent and beautiful landmark. As everyone knows, Mumtaz died when delivering her 14th baby much earlier before the Taz Mahal itself finished.

    The king himself then murdered by his own son who disagreed with his royal father lavish live and plan to built another Taz Mahal for himself. If you go to Taz Mahal compound, there is no other Taz Mahal or the black Taz Mahal around. Every building in Taz Mahal compound was built asymmetrically and in harmony with its surrounding. The buildings erected in the edge of the river, so it has incredibly beautiful natural landscape in itself.

    Made of first class marble and crafted and decorated with semi precious stones such as Lapis Lazuli , Malahit etc, it makes Taz Mahal one of the world expensive and grandeur royal tomb ever exist man made!

    The King and his Queen buried in the ground of Taz Mahal. What we can see in the first floor or the entrance is the replica of their tombs. The entrance fee is 750 rupees for an adult, that is included a bottle of small mineral water and a pair of wet shoe cover since the temperature around Agra could reach up to 50 centigrade degree Celsius we need the shoe cover to stand the heat. No chewing gum allowed into the Taz also no pictures taken inside the building in order to maintain the color of the stone. The marble wall itself is translucent, it gives white color in the morning, yellow to light orange in the afternoon and blue in the evening. When we pointed out our light or lit the matches to the wall, the light can go through the wall, so it is magnificently incredible!

    There are many professional photographer around the The Taz Mahal, so we don't have to worry if we forget to bring our camera along. It will costs us only 700 rupees for ten pictures, so its no money at all considering the professional result we could get. The pictures will turn to be very fantastic!

    On the way back to the hotel, our tour guide, the one who has been recommended by the embassy, lead us to the handicraft shop, who sells some souvenirs made of translucent marble. The ancestors of the handcraft men were the one who crafted the Taz Mahal, so according to our guide they produce only high quality handicrafts, but the price is extremely expensive, especially for a civil servant like me. I bought the cheapest one, not so nice, but it cost me already USD 150.- only for a simple marble plate and small elephant crafts. Gee...that was only some I could bring from India since I had a condense meeting and must commute every day from Gurgaon to the meeting venue in New Delhi. I didn't even know how New Delhi actually looks, but I thanks God and my government and myself because of the small mistake I made in booking the hotel, I was then able to commute and see how the real India looks and I could take some pictures which you can see in this website.

    I return home on 3rd September to Indonesia and stayed over night in Bangkok Thailand. I bring along a beautiful and incredible memory of India which I will treasure the beauty of India until I die.

    Friday-Sunday, Can Can (Downtown)

    Dracula
    Dracula will be breathed to life yet again when playwright Steven Dietz's adaptation of the Bram Stoker tale is revived and revised specifically for ACT Theatre. In this Dracula, the focus shifts to Mina Murray Harker. Her character has always been ripe for a reckoning or a refresh, or both. She is the source of endless fascination, because she is an obvious heroine in Stoker's novel, pure of heart and mind, and yet she's just as much a casualty of Dracula's desires as her poor friend Lucy. No matter how many gender norms Stoker challenged, it was still the Victorian era. Mina could be given only so much agency. "But to simply make her a victim was super unsatisfying to all of us," director John Langs explained. "So Steven has done some reworking of the story, and she really comes to the forefront. The hunted becomes the hunter in this particular adaptation." LEILANI POLK
    Friday-Sunday, ACT Theatre (Downtown)

    The Great Moment
    Playwright Anna Ziegler earned a lot of attention in 2015 for Photograph 51, a well-received bio-drama about Rosalind Franklin, the woman who discovered DNA. Nicole Kidman played the starring role, everybody loved it, and Ziegler was praised for her "fair-minded and philosophical" (New York Times) approach to character building. Ziegler will likely bring that same talent for creating multidimensional characters to The Great Moment, which will have its world premiere at the Seattle Rep. According to press materials, the story follows a woman named Sarah, who is watching her grandfather slowly die while she raises her son. Alexandra Tavares plays the lead in this, and I've loved everything I've ever seen her in. RICH SMITH
    Friday-Sunday, Seattle Repertory Theatre (Seattle Center)

    Locally Sourced
    Three local choreographers will present three brand-new works for Pacific Northwest Ballet, all of which pique my curiosity for different reasons. Tony-nominated choreographer Donald Byrd often uses dance to examine acts of violence levied against minorities, so it'll be interesting to see how music by Emmanuel Witzthum, who creates warm, morning-light compositions, works into his vision. Bellevue-based choreographer Eva Stone, who produces the CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work festival, will have a new piece called F O I L. She often challenges assumptions about gender in her work, and her recent collaboration with Au Collective at PNB & SAM’s Sculptured Dance ruled. And PNB corps member Miles Pertl makes his choreographic debut with music from Stranger Genius Award finalist Jherek Bischoff, whose soaring indie compositions always make me feel better about life. RICH SMITH
    Friday-Saturday, McCaw Hall (Seattle Center)

    Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker
    A cast of touring ballet dancers from Moscow will take their 27th tour across the United States to perform the Great Russian Nutcracker, which promises puppets and amazing costumes.
    Friday, Paramount Theatre (Downtown)

    Seattle International Comedy Competition 2019
    For nearly all of November, a lengthy last-comic-standing battle rages. Thirty-two comedians (split into two batches, each of which performs every night for one week) start the contest, and one will finish a champion. Celebrity judges and audience reactions determine who passes the preliminaries and who becomes a finalist. See the first week's schedule here.
    Friday–Sunday, Various locations

    Shout, Sister, Shout!
    Rejoice in the music and power of the "Godmother of Rock 'n' Roll," Rosetta Tharpe, the amazing singer and guitarist who transformed American music.
    Friday-Sunday, Seattle Repertory Theatre (Seattle Center)

    SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque
    SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque promises geek-friendly burlesque performance, with references to Star Wars, Rick and Morty, Stranger Things, Sailor Moon, and other pop culture favorites.
    Friday, Benaroya Hall (Downtown)

    The Tempest
    Accomplished director Annie Lareau (Cornish College of the Arts' Much Ado About Nothing, many Seattle Public Theater productions), will tackle Shakespeare's fantastical final work about an island wizard, his hot daughter, his nonhuman slaves, and his princely prisoner. This staging will take place in an Edwardian castle, "one of the last periods before media started to infiltrate people's lives."
    Friday-Sunday, Center Theatre (Seattle Center)

    The Thanksgiving Play
    In this holiday comedy, Lakota playwright Larissa FastHorse takes aim at a group of white teaching artists who end up reasserting colonial ideology in their attempt to rid their teaching practice of that very same ideology. According to Jesse Green's review in the New York Times, the more cringe-inducing skits in the show are based on actual school lesson plans lifted from social-media posts: "They include potted history and offensive ditties and, in one case, a suggestion to split the pupils into Pilgrims and Indians 'so the Indians can practice sharing.'" Sounds like it'll be another fine entry into the growing canon of plays about white people fucking up something they're trying to fix. I'm unfamiliar with the actors in the show, but I have no doubt they'll flourish in the highly capable hands of director Kelly Kitchens. RICH SMITH
    Friday-Sunday, Seattle Public Theater (Green Lake)

    Where is home : birds of passage
    You know what's really scary? Concentration camps for asylum seekers at the border, constant ICE raids, border patrol separating children from their parents and not having the administrative infrastructure to unite them, and the state generally doing everything it can to dehumanize people who want to immigrate to this country. In her brand-new—and first-ever (!)—solo show, Where is home : birds of passage, local Italian American choreographer Alice Gosti aims to push back against the xenophobic narratives that drive these anti-immigrant policies. She'll draw from her own history with immigration as well as the larger history of Italian immigration to the United States in a spectacle that will run about three hours. As always with Gosti's work, you'll get to decide how much attention you want to devote to this performance. And the act of making that decision, of course, is part of the performance. RICH SMITH
    Friday-Sunday, ACT Theatre (Downtown)

    FILM FESTIVALS & OPENINGS

    Cinema Italian Style
    The Cinema Italian Style is a weeklong SIFF mini-festival featuring the best in contemporary Italian cinema.
    Friday-Sunday, SIFF Cinema Uptown (Queen Anne)

    'Doctor Sleep' Opening
    Danny Torrance, the psychic kid from The Shining, is all grown up—and messed up, understandably. When he meets a girl with the "shining," the same ability as his own, the two allies must fight a cult that tries to exploit their power.

    HUMP! Film Festival
    The HUMP! Film Festival has been bringing audiences a new kind of porn since 2005. The 15th Annual HUMP! Film Festival festival features 21 short dirty movies—each less than five minutes—all created by people who aren't porn stars but want to be one for a weekend. The filmmakers and stars show us what they think is hot and sexy, creative and kinky, their ultimate turn-ons and their craziest fantasies. Our carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes—all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity. HUMP! is a celebration of creative sexual expression. You will see films at HUMP! that shock you. You will see films at HUMP! that make you laugh. And you will see films at HUMP! that turn you on. You will also be touched by the sincerity and vulnerability with which these films are lovingly made. HUMP!'s main mission is to change the way America sees—and makes and shares—porn. DAN SAVAGE
    Friday-Sunday, On the Boards (Queen Anne)

    MAJOR CONCERTS & MUSIC EVENTS

    CATHEDRALS XXVIII: Jesca Hoop, Ken Stringfellow, Chloe Foy
    My first encounter with Jesca Hoop was on a little EP called Kismet I found in a stack of ignored CDs at my college radio station. It was short and intense, with enough winding moonlit passion to power a whole album (which, incidentally, it would do later in 2007). From that moment 12 years ago to 2016's Sub Pop release of her latest, Memories Are Now, Hoop has toured with Shearwater and Andrew Bird, among many other artists, released double digits’ worth of EPs and LPs, and grown in her abilities to maintain a level of sister-wife-survival-guide in a wading pool of folkloric intensities. This album holds promise for continued growth in the mythic forest realm her music inhabits, with a sense of matured centering, an innate feeling that her work has finally found a stronghold from which to blossom. KIM SELLING

    Emerald City Soul Club 14th Annual Rare Soul Weekender
    A residency that’s been active for 14 years is an impressive feat of longevity in a town that can be pretty fickle. So it’s fitting that the anniversary celebration of Emerald City Soul Club—both a monthly event that gets hips shakin’ and asses quakin’, and the DJs who spin those righteously soulful sounds—stretches over several days. The festivities kick off with a meet and greet featuring weekender guest DJs and selectors at the Triple Door. Next, two nights (Friday and Saturday) of main events, Soul Nite #1 and #2, at the usual digs, Lo-Fi; expect rare R&B, soul, Latin, funk, crossover, and modern 45s played by top collectors/DJs from the US and Europe. ECSC DJ and Stranger staffer Mike Nipper gave me a sneak preview of songs that’ll likely be played sometime this weekend: Curtis Lee, “Is She in Your Town”; Joanie Sommers, “Don’t Pity Me”; Bernadette Bascom, “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love”; Arnold Blair, “Trying to Get Next to You”; and the Incredibles, "Miss Treatment.” There’s also a Saturday daytime Big Dig Record Swap at Vermillion, and on Sunday, the All-Dayer Soul Survivor Party (actually, 4 p.m. to close) at Screwdriver. In sum, plenty of opportunities to gtf down. LEILANI POLK

    Ladies & Gentleman, An Evening with Jason Mraz & Raining Jane
    Someone's got to be the less-douchey John Mayer, and there's no better contender than Jason Mraz, a perfectly good guy making perfectly nice music that will not make you cover your ears in horror should you happen to hear it on the radio or in the supermarket. He's funny, humble, pro-gay, and he wears hats. He'll be joined by '90s-bred folk-rock artist Raining Jane. DAVE SEGAL

    The Movie Music of John Williams
    If you do not know who John Williams is, do not bother reading what I have to say about him in this blurb. John Williams' greatest achievement as a film composer is his love theme “Han Solo and the Princess” for Han and Leia in The Empire Strikes Back. (You, the pop-culture ignoramus, are still reading! Yes, Williams composed the music for the Star Wars series, and also Jaws, Indiana Jones, and so on, and so on.) This love theme has all of the sensitivity and cheap beauty that made “Spartacus: Love Theme” a jazz standard. If the great jazz pianist Bill Evans were alive today (why don’t some people live forever?), he would have made pure magic out of Williams’s “Love Theme.” CHARLES MUDEDE
    Friday-Sunday, Benaroya Hall (Downtown)

    Seefeel, Dr. Troy
    You could say this is my most anticipated show of 2019; I've been waiting 26 years to catch Seefeel live. Led by guitarist/producer Mark Clifford and vocalist/guitarist Sarah Peacock, the group arose from the UK’s potent shoegaze/post-rock scene, but immediately established themselves as outliers, embracing dubby bass lines and Aphex Twin–like ambience on releases such as More Like Space and Quique. (It made sense that Richard D. James remixed the early Seefeel classic “Time to Find Me.”) Even more blissed-out and ethereal than My Bloody Valentine circa Loveless, Seefeel generated impossibly sensuous whirlpools of sound up through 1994's Starethrough EP. Their aesthetic gradually morphed into an alien strain of IDM while still retaining Seefeel's mesmerizing guitar daubs and disembodied dub vibrations. For this gig, I'm betting on a stunning career retrospective involving radical interpretations of old faves, with possibly some new tracks scattered throughout. DAVE SEGAL

    Since catching the ears of the rap cognoscenti with his 1017 Thug mixtape in 2013, Thugger has carved out his own path in popular rap through repetition and oddball yelps, scoring a steady string of singles like smashes “Stoner” and “Danny Glover” to his 2016 Jeffery mixtape, all recorded alongside a cadre of scene-defining producers, including London On Da Trak and Metro Boomin.

    READINGS & TALKS

    Adrienne Brodeur: Wild Game
    Brodeur writes about her very complicated adolescence in this memoir, subtitled My Mother, Her Lover, and Me. At 14, she became her mother's confidante during the latter's affair with her husband's best friend. Entertainment predicts that this tale of terrible parenting, its impacts, and the possibility of reconciliation may be the "next big memoir." Brodeur will read with Danya Kukafka.
    Friday, Elliott Bay Book Company (Capitol Hill)

    An Evening with David Sedaris
    He’s back. One of America’s most beloved writers and humorists returns to Seattle for his annual performance. It’s almost a tradition by now, the yearly visit from David Sedaris, as though your favorite uncle or the best friend you wish you had pops in for a night to read from whatever he’s working through. We’re lucky that way. No word yet on whether his material will be old or new (maybe both?) but, like always, he is sure to amuse. KATIE HERZOG

    “Noul totalitarism e progresist și eco”

     Cache   

    FUMIGENE DE WEEKEND (111) O treime din generaţia millennials, născuţi între 1981 - 1996, “ar vota în 2020 cu candidaţii de extremă stângă”, relevă un sondaj comandat de Fundația americană pentru memoria victimelor comunismului. Potrivit acestuia, “capitalismul a pierdut din popularitate”, fiind sprijinit de doar jumătate dintre  aceștia. 36% aprobă comunismul, iar 70% ar vota cu socialiștii STOP Probabil că respectivii habar n-au care e diferența dintre ele. "Dacă nu educăm generaţia tânără despre adevărul istoric al celor 100 de milioane de victime ucise de regimurile comuniste în ultimul secol, să nu ne surprindă disponibilitatea ei pentru ideile marxiste", declară realizatorul studiului. De altfel, peste 20% dintre milennials cred că "societatea ar fi mai bună dacă s-ar elimina ideea proprietăţii private" STOP Interesante comentariile la un interviu al Hotnews pe această temă, cu un istoric din aceeași generație: “o bună parte din mileniali sunt confuzi din cauza unui amestec de ignoranța și conformism. Ignoranța e întreținută de un sistem educațional deficitar... Avem în Romania, în USA sau în Franța, generații de analfabeți funcționali care pot silabisi, dar nu înteleg sensul și logica unei fraze (nu mai vorbim de lexic)” STOP Iar mai departe: “Obama a criticat dur...agresivitatea celor care tind să arate imediat cu degetul orice nu e "corect politic". Fostul președinte democrat s-a arătat îngrijorat de tendința de a bloca dezbaterea în campusurile universitare și de a interzice opiniile diferite (de cele progresiste)” STOP Un alt cititor concluzionează: “noul totalitarism e progresist și eco".  De genul Greta, 2035fărătutun, USR, Arafat și alții/altele. La “și alții” intră și Cioloș, care a îndrăznit să-și critice fostul subaltern pentru prestația de la Colectiv și “ascunderea” filmului în care șeful DSU, aidoma “bărbatului în alb din 10 august”, vorbește la telefon netulburat în mijlocul nebuniei STOP Atât de tare l-a supărat pe Arafat critica asta, încât a început să vorbească moldovenește, nemaiscoțându-l pe Cioloș din “dânsul”  STOP „Am văzut pe dânsul (Dacian Cioloş – n.r.) spune că un departament nu trebuie să ţină de un om şi sunt total de acord cu dânsul (...) Mai mult decât atât, dânsul comentează că un astfel de departament atunci când funcţionează doar sub comanda omului suprem are o problemă. Departamentul nu funcţionează doar sub comanda omului suprem” STOP În paranteză fie spus, Arafat a încercat o mică diversiune cu o teorie a conspirației, potrivit căreia cineva a încercat să îi ia jucăriile (elicoptere și avioane SMURD, înmatriculate militar). Dar declarația nu prea a avut ecou, fiind preluată sporadic. Asta în comparație cu marea  lovitură de presă despre “aparatele morții”, pe vremea când Arafat dădea verdicte despre vapat. “O tempora...” STOP Noul ministru de Interne a fost întâmpinat de protestatari cu cererea: “Capul lui Arafat vrem” STOP “Bătrânii sunt otrăviţi de medicamente, pentru că testările clinice se fac pe tineri. Mulţi pensionari iau câte 10-20 de  pastile pentru bolile pe care le au, ceea ce îi expune multiplelor reacţii adverse şi mai ales interacţiunilor dintre ele”, consideră Serviciului Naţional pentru Sănătate din Anglia. “Studii anterioare au scos în evidenţă că o persoană din 15 se află în spital din cauza reacţiilor adverse ale medicamentelor prescrise” STOP Dacă ar fi să jucăm Monopoly...Pe hârtie stăm bine, pe teren e jale. “La nivel de proiectare, suntem campioni, dar în ceea ce priveşte km de autostradă, 828, suntem pe locul 128 în lume, după Zimbabwe şi Gabon” STOP “Prima regulă a pieței unice din Uniunea Europeană este să ai o autostrada către Germania”, a transmis autorităților române un economist-șef al Băncii Mondiale, coordonator al politicii economice pentru statele UE. O autostradă catre Germania nu avem, dar avem un Președinte. Se pune? STOP Și totuși, “România alături de Germania”. Potrivit Eurostat, aproape două treimi dintre orașele europene cu cei mai puțini tineri se află în  cele două țări STOP “Industria sănătății”, ca și “industria morții”, tot industrie se cheamă că este, vulnerabilă la procese în masă declanșate de avocați orientați financiar. Nu doar “big tobacco”, dar și “big farma” plătește înțelegeri (settlements) ca să fie lăsată în pace. “Cinci producători şi distribuitori de medicamente oferă 50 de miliarde de dolari în numerar, servicii și medicamente, pentru închiderea investigaţiilor în care industria farmaceutică este acuzată că a provocat criza opioidelor din SUA”. În instanțe sunt 2.600 de procese, arată Cursdeguvernare STOP Procesomania, faza pe budă. După ce fosta șefă a ASSMB, o anume Coțofană, a afirmat că „în mandatul doamnei Firea, s-au plătit WC-uri de 230 de lei cu 3.500 de lei plus TVA”, Primărița a declarat că nu se lasă și merge cu ea “de gât, la cremenal”, adică îi face plângere la DNA STOP Guardian scrie că Guvernul chinez a lansat un Cod de conduită menit să „amplifice atitudinea pozitivă a cetăţenilor faţă de partid şi ţară şi să creeze un simţ al identităţii colective”. Documentul, emis de CC al PCC, este “un instrument nou de propagandă și de consolidare a cultului personalității, centrat pe liderul Xi Jinping și are rolul de a-i crește legitimitatea într-o perioadă în care Beijingul se confruntă cu provocări serioase - protestele din Hong Kong, încetinirea economiei și războiul comercial cu SUA. Cetățenii sunt îndemnați să trateze gândirea Xi Jinping ca fiind nucleul busolei lor morale civice, fiind omise multe referințe la alți lideri din istoria țării, precum Mao”. Aviz simpatizanților americani ai comunismului! STOP “Facebook a acceptat să plătească o amendă de 500.000 de lire sterline pentru încălcarea legislaţiei privind protecţia datelor, în cazul Cambridge Analytica”, a anunţat autoritatea britanică de reglementare. Aceasta pentru că “date despre cel puţin un milion de utilizatori britanici s-au aflat printre informaţiile strânse de Cambridge Analytica şi folosite în scopuri politice” STOP CA a fost angajată de Trump pentru campania din 2016 și ar fi fost “implicată în peste 200 de campanii electorale, inclusiv în Nigeria, Kenya, Cehia, India şi Argentina”, lucrând împreună cu “companii specializate în strângerea de informaţii”. La momentul scandalului, Cambridge Analytica România era condusă de ginerele Ministrului de externe (în prezent Președinte al Senatului), având sediul chiar la domiciliul acestuia. Peter Imre a lucrat cândva pentru o mare companie americană de tutun STOP “Camera Reprezentanţilor SUA a recunoscut în mod oficial genocidul armean, într-un vot simbolic fără precedent...o majoritate zdrobitoare de 405 din 435 de voturi, într-o rară unitate între democraţi şi republicani”. Ministerul turc de Externe a ”condamnat ferm” acest act politic și l-a convocat pe ambasadorul american. La rândul lor, bulgarii au convocat-o la Externe pe ambasadoarea Franței, după declarațiile ofensatoare ale lui Macron, care îi preferă bulgarilor pe cei din Coasta de Fildeș. Numai oficialii noștri au stat în poziția ghiocel cănd ambasadorii SUA ne-a dat lecții și indicații STOP “Orban de la Budapesta l-a felicitat pe Orban de la București. Presa maghiară face glume cu Ardealul”. Iar unii au postat pe FB: “să vezi de acum încolo ce de Hello Budapest!” STOP Înainte de predarea mandatului, fostul ministru al Agriculturii a avut parte de o aniversare unică. “PSD-iștii din Arad i-au făcut cadou lui Petre Daea, de ziua lui, un tort în formă de oaie”. Oaia aia e a lui STOP Contrabanda cu țigări a ajuns la un minim istoric apropiat de nivelul european: 10,5%. Evident, lobiștii antitutun, pregătiți să împingă tare proiectul de vânzare a țigărilor pe sub tejghea, au sărit de fund în sus că ar fi manipulare, de genul celei pe care o practică ei când clamează așa-zisele “pierderi cauzate de tutun: 4,2% din PIB”. Râd și curcile STOP Țigări de contrabandă în magazine, la Ploiești. Șase magazine au fost descoperite practicând acest “sport” bănos, alegându-se cu marfa confiscată și amenzi. Poliția nu i-a crezut pe împricinații care s-au declarat simpli vizionari, care anticipează legea Emanuel Ungureanu/Ramona Brad STOP BAT a ajuns pe locul 27 în topul exportatorilor. În același timp, a extins campania cu scrumiere stradale din Sectorul 3 București, dăruind 200 de bucăți Primăriei Iași. Pe pariu că, iar, fac activiștii scandal? Deocamdată, fac doar bube roșii și nu pot dormi pentru că, la Parament, se lanseză “Coaliția pentru libertatea comerțului și a comunicării” STOP A căzut ultima redută: “fumătorii din Austria nu-şi mai pot aprinde o ţigară în cafenele şi restaurante”, relatează AFP. Să vedem cât va afecta interdicția locul Vienei în topul celor mai bune orașe în care merită să trăiești STOP Deși cocktailurile de medicamente fac ravagii, “specialiștii în sănătate publică” au alt azimut: țigările electronice. Pentru că SUA nu se grăbește cu interdicțiile, dat fiind că majoritatea cazurilor semnalate sunt de la extract ilegal de canabis, “experții lu’ Bloomberg” s-au orientat către alte meleaguri, mai înfometate. După Brazilia, Thailanda şi India, “China a decretat închiderea temporară a magazinelor specializate în vânzarea de ţigări electronice, până când efectele acestora asupra stării de sănătate vor fi lămurite” STOP “Aprozăreasa candidează la Primaria Cluj”. Aurelia Cristea, mama legii antifumat de acum trei ani, vrea să îi ia fața lui Boc. Dar, Clujul e un oraș orientat, cu nas politic fin și buzunare larg deschise către investitori. Ca dovadă, “eșecul electoral” al lui Barna. Evenimentul Zilei relatează că, la adunarea simpatizanţilor acestuia, s-ar fi ocupat doar jumătate dintr-o sală de Cinema. A se compara cu prezența la filmele de dans de la TIFF, sponsorizate de JTI STOP Viorica Dăncilă între sabie și macetă. După ce candidata PSD a primit în dar o sabie de Samurai, ca să “taie ce trebuie”, simpatizanții ei, care împărțeau pliante la Brăila, au fost fugăriți de un bărbat înarmat cu o macetă STOP Istoria romanțată e, uneori, pasională. “John F. Kennedy a fost refuzat de actriţa Sophia Loren, dar vedete precum Audrey Hepburn şi Angie Dickinson au avut relaţii intime cu preşedintele american”, relatează Daily Mail. La noi, istoria rescrisă în funcție de “politicile corecte cacofonice” e năucitoare, scrie Marius Oprea despre Hodor și așa-zișii istorici de la CNSAS, influențați în impietarea lor de ideologii “Fenomenului Pitești”, adică de torționari și securiști STOP Dna Ludwig, noul Comisarul german pe droguri (echivalentul ANA, de la noi), a declarat mai întâi că dorește interzicerea reclamelor la țigari clasice și electronice pe panourile publicitare (că astfel s-ar putea vedea sau nu s-ar mai putea vedea ce face sau ar trebui să facă ea), după care a revenit “la castravete”: 19% dintre adolescenți au recunoscut că folosesc canabis, procent care urcă vertiginos la grupa de vârsta 18-25 de ani: 42,5% STOP Heroina și opioidele (produse farma) reprezintă, însă, principala cauză de deces asociat consumului de droguri, cu 1275 cazuri anual. Ludwig a concluzionat că oamenii trebuie ajutați sa scape de dependențe, iar “dezbaterile bazate pe ideologie” trebuie înlocuite cu dialogul STOP Socialiștii din PE dau pe dinafară de “corectitudine politică”. Nu l-au vrut pe albul hetero Sigfrid Mureșan Comisar european, pentru că nu era nici măcar femeie. Noroc că Adina Vălean e ok și nu ne va face de râs,  deși e straight STOP Cancerul corectitudinii politice ucide conștiințe și talente. Regizorul Andrei Șerban a declarat la TVR că a demisionat de la Universitatea Columbia când i s-a cerut să angajeze un nou profesor, "de preferință o femeie de culoare, care dacă este gay e foarte bine", și nu a fost de acord ca rolul Julietei să fie jucat de un transsexual STOP "În epoca Trump, dreapta e foarte radicală, stânga e foarte radicală...Universitățile în America sunt de obicei de stânga...” iar “Columbia e un fel de socialism care merge spre comunism, e o nouă formă de comunism", a spus  regizorul (HEXAVALENT)

    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving is the largest and most encyclopedic book available for carvers who want to study all varieties of Thai carving in one convenient book. This carving book is unique in its complete coverage of presenting Thai food with exquisite carvings and it is essentially two books in one.

    Written by Thai fruit carving expert, Penpan Sittitrai, the first part of the book, Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving focuses entirely on step-by-step carving instructions, each with their own corresponding full-color photographs, detailed instructions, and sketched illustrations. Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.

    Munandar’s death overshadows MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix

     Cache   

    Márquez pays tribute to Asia Talent Cup star, the Quartararo/Márquez Q2 clash, why KTM signed ‘unknown’ Lecuona & reasons why Yamaha: MotoGP Malaysian GP round-up

    Afridza Munandar

    Rising Indonesian star dies at Sepang

    Eight years ago the Malaysian Grand Prix was marred by the death of larger-than-life MotoGP star Marco Simoncelli.

    This year’s Malaysian GP was darkened by the passing of Asia Talent Cup rider Afridza Munandar. The Indonesian youngster lost his life in Saturday’s ATC race when he fell on the first lap and was struck by another rider. He was rushed by helicopter to hospital in Kuala Lumpur but succumbed to his injuries

    Munandar was one of the standout riders of the 2019 Asia Talent Cup, South East Asia’s so-called road to MotoGP that has already brought Somkiat Chantra, Ai Ogura, Can Oncu, Ayumu Sasaki, Kaito Toba and others into the Moto2 and Moto3 world championships.

    "He was pushing, riding with his passion and he will always be the most special rider of this Grand Prix"

    The 20-year-old, who also raced underbone machines in the Indonesian national series, had stood on the podium at three world championship rounds this year: he won the ATC support race at the Thailand World Superbike round in March, he took third at October’s Thailand MotoGP round and he was second during the recent Japanese GP round. He also won an ATC race during the Malaysian national superbike event at Sepang in June.

    Reigning MotoGP world champion Marc Márquez spoke eloquently of Munandar’s passing after Sunday’s MotoGP race.

    “Today is an emotional day because yesterday we lost Munandar,” said Márquez.

    “He was a young talent. I knew him because he’s from Astra Honda, where we went many times [in Indonesia]. We cannot forget that everybody here realises the risks we take on the track. We take these risks to achieve our goals, for those sweet moments, so when we achieve our goals we need to enjoy them. Today we enjoyed racing for him because he was also looking for these moments. He was pushing, riding with his passion and he will always be the most special rider of this Grand Prix.”

    Munandar is the fifth rider to lose his life at a MotoGP event in the last ten years. Japanese Moto2 star Shoya Tomizawa was killed during the 2010 San Marino GP, a week after 13-year-old American Peter Lenz died after falling on the warm-up lap of a support race at the Indianapolis Grand Prix. All these riders lost their lives in similar ways – they fell from their motorcycle and were struck by following riders. The fifth rider to die during this period was Luis Salom, who was killed during the 2016 Catalan GP, when he was struck by his bike that had rebounded off the trackside airfence.

    Despite never-ending development work by riding-gear manufacturers it’s very difficult to protect a fallen rider from the impact of motorcycles travelling at high speed.

    Motor Sport extends its deepest condolences to Munandar’s family, friends and loved ones.

     

     

    More reasons why Yamaha is back up front…

    Apologies for this – the following information should have featured in Monday’s Sepang race insight, revealing another the reasons for Yamaha’s current revival. Two weeks before Sepang I spoke to Petronas SRT team manager Wilco Zeelenberg at Motegi.

    “This year’s improvements are nothing big, just tiny changes, but the biggest thing has been Fabio [Quartararo] pushing all the other guys by showing them what the bike can really do,” said Zeelenberg. And then they can look at his data and learn from him, so this is a big help for all of Yamaha.

    “Many things are better this year: the engine and the electronics, but most of all it’s the engine that helps us by giving us traction, which is what we needed last year. Pretty much all of our problems last year were because the engine was wrong. The way it made power didn’t find traction, the electronics were not the biggest problem.

    “Also, Michelin’s 2019 tyres have helped us a lot. The rear tyre compounds are stronger than last year, so this is a real help, because tyre life was our biggest problem last season.”

     

     

    Márquez evaluates scooter-style rear brake

    Márquez in FP2 at Sepang: with rear brake lever above, clutch lever below Photo: Honda

    Marc Márquez tried a new rear-brake system at Sepang which may trigger a major shift in how MotoGP riders use the rear brake.

    MotoGP riders don’t only use the rear brake to decelerate, they use it to help turn the bike mid-corner, to adjust geometry and to control acceleration on corner exits.

    Several riders in MotoGP now use rear brakes operated by the left thumb, because they cannot get their right foot to the rear lever in right-handers. However, a thumb-brake cannot deliver much pressure to the rear brake. A finger-operated lever delivers much more pressure and feels more natural because riders use the same system when riding scooters. World Superbike rider Michael van der Mark and several other superbike riders already use finger-operated rear brakes.

    “Normally in left corners I’m very fast, but in right corners I’m not extra fast, so we are trying something more,” said Márquez, who only tried the finger lever in FP2. “I didn’t like the thumb brake because I need to feel the handlebar in my hand. But I ride a lot of motocross using the clutch, so this system is easier for me, but at the moment it’s not ready. This was just the first contact to see if it’s possible to use in the future.”

    Brembo technicians believe Márquez needs to start 2020 preseason testing with the system and use it for the whole season.

     

     

    MotoGP aerodynamics to be removed (occasionally)

    Aerodynamics has been the greatest area of controversy in MotoGP during the last few seasons and now the downforce devices may be removed, if only occasionally.

    The recent Australian Grand Prix, interrupted by gale-force winds that caused several crashes, convinced riders and teams that MotoGP’s aero winglets can be dangerous in certain circumstances.

    “Phillip Island is a unique track in a unique location by the sea, so sometimes it does get very windy,” explained MotoGP technical director Danny Aldridge at Sepang.

    “Some riders, teams and manufacturers came to me during the weekend explaining that when it’s really windy the wind can get under the wings, so when the weather’s like that they feel it’s safer to run without them.

    “But at that late stage in the weekend we couldn’t do much about it, because while some factories use aerodynamics that are attached to the bodywork, others use aero that’s moulded into the bodywork, so it wouldn’t have been fair if some teams had removed their aero and others couldn’t. We have discussed the situation at IRTA and now the proposal will go to the Grand Prix Commission.”

     

     

    ‘Swinglets’ are NOT tyre coolers, confirms KTM

    KTM's 'swinglet' during the 2019 MotoGP Malaysian Grand Prix

    The last of MotoGP’s six factories to introduce swingarm aero used its first so-called ‘swinglet’ at Sepang. KTM is more against aerodynamics than any of the other factories but is going with the flow.

    When Ducati introduced the first ‘swinglet’ at the season-opening Qatar GP it caused one of the nastiest confrontations between MotoGP factories in some years. Several rival brands protested at the innovation and the case eventually went to MotoGP’s Court of Appeal, which ruled in the Italian factory’s favour.

    At that time Red Bull KTM team manager Mike Leitner said, “a full aero ban would be great; it would make us happy”. But both KTM factory riders raced with ‘swinglets’ at Sepang.

    Because swingarm attachments aren’t allowed for aerodynamic reasons Ducati had its unit authorised as a tyre-cooling device. However, every rider from every rival factory that’s subsequently used copies of Ducati’s ‘swinglet’ says the same thing: the ‘swinglet’ increases rear-tyre downforce, which gives them vital extra grip during braking.

    “We feel more support from the rear in braking, more rear-tyre force,” said KTM rider Pol Espargaro at Sepang. “This is why all the manufacturers do this: to increase downforce.”

    In other words, it would appear that Ducati was being economical with the truth at the start of the season. So what happens next? Will ‘swinglets’ be banned? Not quite.

    “I homologate items on the confirmation that the factories give me – what the riders say out there is something else,” said MotoGP technical director Danny Aldridge at Sepang. “Obviously this is no longer a grey area and all the factories have these things, so they will be allowed for 2020. And it’s not all downforce – for example Suzuki say that when they look at their data the unit does cool the tyre.

    “The rules will be clarified for next year. Factories will be allowed only one upgrade through the season, and if you remove your unit that’s your upgrade. So you can change the design once, but the upgrade has got to be there all the time, except in the rain.”

     

     

    Why did KTM choose Lecuona? ‘Because he’s an animal!’

    Iker Lecuona during the 2019 Malaysian Moto2 Grand Prix

    When Casey Stoner rode for Ducati his team manager Livio Suppo famously said, “I love Casey – he’s an animal!”

    When I asked a top Moto2 engineer why KTM had signed a virtual unknown to its Tech 3 MotoGP team he laughed and said, “Iker is an animal!”.

    Motorcycle racing is a vicious sport and requires huge amounts of aggression. This is why KTM signed Iker Lecuona, plus the fact that he is only just starting out as a roadracer and is already fighting close to the front of the Moto2 pack. Incredibly this is only the Spanish 19-year-old’s third full season as a roadracer! Before that he was Spanish Supermoto champion.

    At Sepang on Sunday he fought for fourth place on a private KTM, 20 seconds ahead of the next KTM privateer.

    The fact that Lecuona (pronounced ‘Laykwona’) is so aggressive on the bike appeals to KTM, which has had its best MotoGP results with Pol Espargaro, who also rides it like he stole it.

    And there is something else KTM likes about the Spaniard – he may just have front-tyre skills like Marc Márquez.

    “Iker rides with the rear and doesn’t care what happens with the front,” says Mathieu Grodecoeur, his Moto2 crew chief in the American Racing Moto2 squad. “The reason he is strong with the KTM Moto2 bike is that he completely ignores the front chatter and all that stuff.

    They have super-rookie in Iker, who will be able tell them completely new things, because he’s never ridden this kind of bike

    “When we checked his data from Phillip Island we saw he lost the front every lap at the last corner, but he didn’t mind because he just rides with the rear. He has the attitude to brake late and not really worry about the front.

    “His riding style is aggressive. He hangs off a lot and makes the bike turn by himself, working a lot with his body position. I don’t expect him to be consistent in year one in MotoGP, but I think he will show some impressive results sometime.”

    Lecuona rode his first Grand Prix in late 2016, then missed the start of his first full-time season in 2017 after suffering serious injuries in preseason testing.

    “Since day one working with him I’ve believed in Iker’s huge, huge talent,” adds Grodecoeur. “Obviously he lacks experience in roadracing but his raw talent is incredible.

    “For sure KTM’s MotoGP bike has a special DNA, so they need a rider that fits that DNA and I think he will suit the bike very well. When we jumped from Kalex to KTM at the end of 2017 Iker felt from his first lap that this bike was made for him because he can be very aggressive with it and do what he wants with it. With the Kalex you need to be more sensitive with the front and he didn’t like that so much.”

    Grodecoeur also believes Lecuona will bring a fresh avenue of development to the RC16

    “KTM’s 2019 line-up makes a lot of sense because they have every kind of rider. They have a very experienced MotoGP rider in Pol [Espargaro], they have a rider with one year of experience Miguel [Oliveira], they have a multiple Moto2 race winner in Brad [Binder] and they have super-rookie in Iker, who will be able tell them completely new things, because he’s never ridden this kind of bike

    KTM’s MotoGP squad has been watching Lecuona since early 2018 when he fought with Brad Binder and Joan Mir at COTA. Next year he will be replaced in American Racing’s line-up by twice Moto3 race winner Marcos Ramirez

     

     

    When Márquez’s magic tricks go wrong

    Maverick Viñales took home 25 points from Sepang, but the biggest talking point of the weekend was the clash between Fabio Quartararo and Marc Márquez during Saturday’s Q2 qualifying session.

    What happened during that outing was basically the opposite of what happened during qualifying for June’s Italian GP.

    That afternoon at Mugello, Márquez played a genius move on his Ducati rivals. The Ducati team told Andrea Dovizioso and Michele Pirro to wait in the pits until Márquez started his final run, then sent them out to mess with him.

    Márquez wasn’t playing, so the trio cruised around Mugello, until Dovizioso knew time was running out, so he had to get his head down and go for it. This is when Márquez turned Ducati over.

    Instead of allowing Dovizioso to use his speed to snatch pole he slotted in behind Dovizioso, leaving himself just enough space to chase down the Italian on their final lap to take pole by two tenths. This was possibly the best qualifying trick since the introduction of the 15-minute format.

    At Sepang it was Márquez who did the chasing, riding out of pit lane right behind Quartararo as they began their final run. Every time Quartararo closed the throttle to force Márquez to overtake, the world champion closed his throttle.

    The pair rode a whole lap like this. Quartararo finally tired of the game and knew time was running out, so when they started the next lap he returned to full speed. And that’s when it happened. When Márquez flicked into Turn Two his rear tyre slid and gripped, flicking him over the highside, landing knees, elbows and face first on the track.

    The champ was badly battered by the fall, which Jack Miller witnessed from just a few metres behind. “I saw the highside and knew exactly what he’d done – he was dicking around,” said the Aussie. “The left side of the rear tyre is quite hard here, so it got too cold and the bike highsided him. He was playing cat and mouse. He’s generally the master tactician, but today it came back and bit him on the arse. The crash didn’t look pleasant.”

    The world champ refused to admit his tactics, while Quartararo only admitted to being flattered. “Marc wanted to follow me because we are doing a good job this year,” said the rookie. “And all this is part of the game – if I have the possibility to do it I’ll also do it.”

    Márquez’s Sunday comeback from his massive highside was remarkable. MotoGP doctor Angel Charte prescribed anti-inflammatories and painkillers for his injuries and described him as “pure, hardened steel”.

    Perhaps without the injuries Márquez may have been hunted down Vinales, but perhaps Q2 was the more important moment of the weekend: the first shot of the 2020 MotoGP season?

    Even more remarkable than Márquez’s race was the fact that neither him nor Quartararo were reprimanded for cruising in Q2, because there is nothing more dangerous on a racetrack than riding slowly.

    Rossi: still life in the old dog yet

    The Malaysian Grand Prix is MotoGP’s most physically demanding race due to the tropical weather. Sunday’s race took place in 32-degree heat and 60 percent humidity and yet the fastest lap was ridden by the oldest man in the race.

    Valentino Rossi, who very nearly won last year’s Malaysian GP and this year was only thwarted in his battle for third by Andrea Dovizioso’s rocket-ship Ducati, broke the four-year-old lap record by almost a second. And he was chuffed to bits.

    “I feel good with the bike and I’m very happy to be strong here because physically this is the hardest race of season,” said the 40-year-old. “This time we worked well on tyre life, although you do a lot of the lap on the edge of the tyres here, so you stress the tyres more. Also we have a lack of speed, so when we fight with faster bikes it’s very difficult to manage. I was faster in the long corners, but on the straights Andrea could always repass me. I tried my maximum because there’s a big difference between finishing third and fourth.

    “Maverick rode the race in the best way today, because with our bike when you are alone you can make your lines and make the difference in the corners, which is where our bike is strong. But when you fight with a bike that’s faster on the straights you cannot overtake in the corners.”

    Last year’s Moto2 world champion Pecco Bagnaia completed February’s three-day preseason test at Sepang second fastest, 0.063 seconds behind Danilo Petrucci and faster than Marc Márquez, Andrea Dovizioso, Fabio Quartararo and everyone else.

    That performance had many people marking Bagnaia down as 2019 Rookie of the Year. But the 22-year-old goes into next week’s 2019 season finale at Valencia with less than a third of the points of Fabio Quartararo and only just ahead of embattled KTM rookie Miguel Oliveira. More importantly he’s hit the ground 13 times, putting him just behind Jack Miller and Johann Zarco at the top of the 2019 crasher’s league.

    Pramac team manager Francesco Guidotti explains the problem.

    “Pecco’s riding style is more corner speed, using the front tyre a lot,” he explained. “There’s a lot more risk to crash with high corner speed, instead of using hard braking, strong acceleration and lower speed in the corners. This is clear and he knows it and he’s trying to change. Sometimes he can, other times he cannot. We show him the data of all the Ducati riders. What he wants to do is to use both styles and make a balance. If he can do that it will be perfect!”

    Tree snake strangles a tokay gecko on woman's bedroom drawer in Thailand

     Cache   
    This is the gruesome moment a tree snake was found eating a tokay gecko in a woman's bedroom. The warring reptiles were seen dangling from the dressing table at the home in Kalasin, northeastern Thailand last Thursday (October 31) afternoon. The House owner Aiw Srisawat heard the gecko squealing followed by the sound of something hitting the ground. She went in to check and found the green tree snake strangling the gecko, before running out of the house and contacting the rescue team. Aiw told the rescue team that she felt sorry for the gecko and did not want it to be eaten but was too scared to help. She said: "I was so terrified to see the tree snake strangling and trying to eat the gecko. I've never seen this in real life before." "Actually, I felt very sorry for the gecko and I didn't know how to catch the snake so I called the rescuers to take care of it." The rescuer volunteer could not untangle the two reptiles so they had to put them both in the sack together before releasing them back in the wild.

    Thai teenager dies at his computer following all night gaming sessions during half-term holidays

     Cache   
    A teenager collapsed and died at his computer after having all-night gaming sessions during school half-term holidays. Piyawat Harikun, 17, had broken up from classes towards the end of October, using the free time to stay in his room on multiplayer battle games on his PC. Parents said he would stay up all night then draw the curtains in the day to continue his fixation with gaming, spending hours on the computer at the home in Udon Thani, northern Thailand. They would take food to his room and urged him to stop, but he refused to cut down on his obsession. Piyawat's father Jaranwit, went to the bedroom on Monday (November 4) afternoon and found his son collapsed from the computer chair and was slumped against a PC tower on the flood. There was a pile of takeaway boxes on the desk and a bottle of fizzy pop at his feet, while his headphones were resting on top of another computer tower. Jaranwit, an air force officer, said he tried to revive his son but he was already dead. He said: ''I called his name and said 'wake up, wake up' but he did not respond. I could see he was dead.'' Medics who examined the body last Sunday (November 3) afternoon said the teenager died from a stroke, which they believe was caused by playing the computer constantly through the night." Jaranwit admitted that his son was a gaming addict and warned other parents not to allow their children to become hooked on the games. He said: "My son was smart and always did great at school but he had a major problem with gaming addiction." "I tried to warn him about his relentless long hours playing games and he promised to reduce it, but it was too later. He had already died before he had a chance to change." "I want my son's death to be an example and warning for parents whose children are game addicts. They need to be more strict on their children's playing hours otherwise they could end up like my son." The boy's body was taken from the hospital to a nearby Buddhist temple where his devastated father was waiting to arrange a funeral.

This carving book is unique in its complete coverage of presenting Thai food with exquisite carvings and it is essentially two books in one.

Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

    In the second half of the book, Vegetable And Fruit Carving In Thai Food, traditional Thai recipes are artfully presented in more elaborate carved vessels, containers, bowls and platters (see list of recipes and carvings below). Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    All-in-all, this is a sizable compendium of the art of fruit and vegetable carving, filled with stunning pictures and detailed instructions. Written by one of the most respected Thai fruit carving artists in Thailand today, it is as elegant as it is useful, being an enduring favorite and a real treasure for any fruit carving enthusiast.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.

Chapters include: Introduction, Essential Ingredients, Pad Thai & Its Regional Variations, Phat Si-io & Other Fried, Noodles, Rat Na & Other Dishes, Noodles with Sauce, Rice Dishes and On Rice Dishes.

    Thai noodle shops (ran kuaitiao), rice & curry shops (ran khao kaeng), and food-to-order shops (ran ahan tam sang) dominate the lively street food scenes in Thailand and serve as evidence of the importance of noodle and rice dishes in the Thai culinary repertoire. Not only are noodles served as street food, they are also frequently served cooked at home, especially since quick and easy meals are increasingly becoming more important in modern Thai families. No matter where you are in the present, rapidly changing world, serving a full meal at home has become an exception rather than the rule. Single-plate dishes including noodle, pasta, and rice have become more and more an essential part of home cooking throughout the world.

    Хайнань вошел в число самых востребованных направлений у россиян

    По данным туроператора TEZ TOUR, остров Хайнань вошел в число самых востребованных направлений у российских туристов на предстоящие новогодние даты. Количество заявок на туры в южную провинцию Китая у клиентов туроператора на зимние праздники даты уже превысило аналогические показатели прошлого года на 143%. Возросшая популярность направления, по мнению специалистов TEZ TOUR, объясняется увеличением числа прямых рейсов из Москвы и крупнейших региональных городов России, активной безвизовой политикой региона, а также климатическими особенностями китайской провинции, позволяющими отдыхать на курортах острова круглый год.

     

     

    Также в рейтинг популярных направлений на зимние праздничные даты, согласно данным туроператора, вошли Объединенные Арабские Эмираты, Турция, Таиланд, Египет, Испания, Австрия, Италия и Андорра.

    При этом, самым доступным направлениями на период новогодних дат стала Турция. Стоимость туров в Турцию у туроператора TEZ TOUR на период новогодних праздников с авиаперелетом, размещением в отеле 3* на 6 ночей и питанием «завтраки» начинается от 18 400 рублей на человека.

    Стоимость аналогичного тура в Китай (Хайнань) на новогодние даты с авиаперелетом в Санью, по данным TEZ TOUR, начинается от 29 300 рублей за тур в ОАЭ — от 38 000 рублей, в Таиланд — от 55 000 рублей на человека. Пляжный отдых в Египте с авиаперелетом в а/п г. Каир и размещением в отеле 4* на 6 ночей обойдется от 32 500 рублей. В число наиболее доступных направлений для горнолыжного отдыха вошли Болгария, Австрия и Андорра. Так стоимость туров на горнолыжные курорты Болгарии на предстоящие новогодние даты с авиаперелетом и размещением в отеле 4* начинается от 28 000 рублей, Австрии — от 34 200 рублей, Андорры — от 36 000 рублей.

    Для экскурсионного отдыха самым доступным направлением стала Италия. Недельный тур с перелетом в а/п Римини и проживанием в отеле 3* на базе «завтраков» начинается от 20 100 рублей.

    The Art of Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving is the largest and most encyclopedic book available for carvers who want to study all varieties of Thai carving in one convenient book. This carving book is unique in its complete coverage of presenting Thai food with exquisite carvings and it is essentially two books in one.

    Written by Thai fruit carving expert, Penpan Sittitrai, the first part of the book, Thai Vegetable and Fruit Carving focuses entirely on step-by-step carving instructions, each with their own corresponding full-color photographs, detailed instructions, and sketched illustrations. Each carving idea is categorized according to fruit.

    In the second half of the book, Vegetable And Fruit Carving In Thai Food, traditional Thai recipes are artfully presented in more elaborate carved vessels, containers, bowls and platters (see list of recipes and carvings below). Each of the photographs contained within this section include their own relative carving instructions and recipes.

    All-in-all, this is a sizable compendium of the art of fruit and vegetable carving, filled with stunning pictures and detailed instructions. Written by one of the most respected Thai fruit carving artists in Thailand today, it is as elegant as it is useful, being an enduring favorite and a real treasure for any fruit carving enthusiast.

    Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium

     Cache   
    The Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove. This is a traditional cooking Thai stove. It is great for B.B.Q. and perfect for wok cooking. The top socket of the Thai BBQ Stove is designed to be removable. There are several reasons for that: one is to increase air or oxygen inside the stove, while the wok or pot is set on top of the stove. The open socket also allows you to add or realign the charcoal to spread the heat without lifting the wok or pot.

    In Thai kitchen, we use stick charcoal not briquettes as in the USA. Some people put the socket in place if they want steady heat (mostly medium to low) for a certain period of time. But for high heat, they usually leave the socket open so they can add more fuel during cooking. The stove itself is made from clay and surrounded with cement and wrapped with sheet metal. Since this product is handmade by local Thais, in some stoves the socket might be lightly cemented to the body of the stove. You can use a chisel to remove the thin layer of cement to free the socket from the stove. Dimension : 10"W x 9 " H. Good for wok size 13". Product of Thailand.

    We also have Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Small .
    For Table top version is at Thai BBQ Charcoal grill Table Top.
