          Ethiopia Airlines crash: Which countries have grounded the 737 Max 8?      Cache   Translate Page      

A growing number of airlines around the world have grounded their Boeing 737 Max 8 jets following the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane that killed 157 people on Sunday. Here is a list of other countries that have grounded the aircraft so far: UK The UK’s Civil Aviation Authority has banned any commercial passenger flights by Boeing 737 Max aircraft from “arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace”. In a statement, the CAA said: “The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace. “The UK Civil Aviation Authority’s safety directive will be in place until further notice. “We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency and industry regulators globally.” Tui Airways, which has the only five 737 Max 8 aircraft operated by a UK-based airline and was due to begin flying a sixth later this week, said in response to the CAA announcement that other aircraft would be used to transport passengers who were due to fly in the jets. The statement said: “TUI Airways can confirm that all 737 MAX 8 aircraft currently operating in the UK have been grounded following the decision from the UK regulatory authorities today. “Any customers due to fly home today on a 737 MAX 8 from their holiday will be flown back on another aircraft. “Customers due to travel in the coming days will also travel on holiday as planned on other aircraft. “The safety and well-being of our customers and staff has remained our primary concern.” Ethiopia A spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines says it will ground its remaining four Max 8 jets as an “extra safety precaution” while it investigates Sunday’s deadly crash. Asrat Begashaw said investigations and the search for bodies and aircraft debris will continue. The airline is awaiting the delivery of 25 more Max 8 jets. Brazil Brazil’s Gol Airlines has suspended the use of 121 Max 8 jets. The airline said it is following the investigation of the Max 8 closely and hopes to return the aircraft to use as soon as possible. Gol said it has made nearly 3,000 flights with the Max 8, which went into service last June, with “total security and efficiency”. Cayman Islands Cayman Airways, a Caribbean carrier, said it stopped using its two Max 8 jets starting on Monday. President and CEO Fabian Whorms said the airline is committed to “putting the safety of our passengers and crew first”. Mr Whorms said the move will cause changes to flight schedules. Cayman is the flag carrier of Cayman Islands, a British overseas territory. It received its first Max 8 in November and its second earlier this month. China China has 96 Max 8 jets in service, belonging to carriers such as Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines. The civilian aviation authority directed the planes to be grounded indefinitely on Monday. It said the order was “taken in line with the management principle of zero tolerance for security risks”. There were eight Chinese citizens on the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed shortly after taking off on Sunday. The authority said it will consult the US Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing before deciding when to lift the ban. India India’s Jet Airways says it is “in contact with the manufacturer” of Max 8 jets and has grounded five of them starting on Monday. Indian airline SpiceJet also uses the aircraft, but it is unclear if those planes are grounded. On Monday, India’s aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. It also issued safety instructions for flying the Max 8 jet. Indonesia Indonesia says it will temporarily ground Max 8 jets to inspect their airworthiness. Director general of Air Transportation Polana B Pramesti said the move was made to ensure flight safety. A Lion Air model of the same plane crashed in Indonesia in October. Indonesian airlines operate 11 Max 8 jets. Lion Air, which owns 10 of them, said it will try to minimise the impact of the decision on operations. The other Max 8 jet belongs to national carrier Garuda. Mexico Mexican airline Aeromexico has suspended flights of its six Max 8 jets after the crash in Ethiopia. Aeromexico said it “fully” trusts the safety of its fleet but ordered the grounding to ensure “the safety of its operations and the peace of mind of its customers”. It said other planes will take over the routes usually flown by the Max 8. Singapore Singapore has temporarily banned Max 8 jets — and other models in the Max range — from entering and leaving the country. The civil aviation authority said it was “closely monitoring the situation” and the ban will be “reviewed as relevant safety information becomes available”. It added that it was in close communication with the FAA, Boeing and other aviation authorities. SilkAir, a regional carrier owned by Singapore Airlines, has six Max 8 jets. It said the ban “will have an impact on some of the airline’s flight schedules”. The authority said flights to Singapore by China Southern Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Shandong Airlines and Thai Lion Air will also be affected. South Korea An Eastar Jet official said that the planes will be replaced by Boeing 737-800 planes from Wednesday on routes to Japan and Thailand. She said the airline has not found any problems, but is voluntarily grounding Boeing 737 Max 8s in a response to customer concerns. She says the planes will not be used until the completion of a government safety review on the aircraft. An official from South Korea’s Transportation Ministry says it has yet to find any problems from safety reviews on Eastar’s planes that started on Monday. Australia Australia has suspended all flights into or out of the country by Boeing 737 Max aircraft. Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority says no Australian airlines operate the aircraft type, but two foreign airlines — SilkAir and Fiji Airways — fly them to Australia. Director of aviation safety, Shane Carmody, says that because of the two accidents, the temporary suspension of Boeing 737 Max operations is in the best interest of safety.

          Εκατομμυριούχος Ταϊλανδός δίνει ρευστό και επιχειρήσεις σε όποιον παντρευτεί την παρθένα κόρη του      Cache   Translate Page      

Ο Ταϊλανδός εκατομμυριούχος, Άρnον Ρόντθονγκ είναι έτοιμος να δώσει σε όποιον παντρευτεί τη 26χρονη κόρη του, Καρνίτα, 315.000 δολάρια και να μεταβιβάσει την περιουσία της και το μερίδιό της στις οικογενειακές επιχειρήσεις στο όνομά του, σύμφωνα με την Daily Mail.

Σημειώνεται πως οι επιχειρήσεις του Ρόντθονγκ αξίζουν αρκετά εκατομμύρια ευρώ καθώς ασχολείται κυρίως με την παραγωγή και διάθεση του σπάνιου φρούτου ντούριαν, το οποίο αν και εξαιρετικά δύσοσμο αποτελεί μεγάλη λιχουδιά στην Ασία. 

 

Ο εκατομμυριούχος πατέρας είπε ότι δεν υπάρχει κανένας περιορισμός στην εθνικότητα του υποψήφιου γαμπρού και ότι αναζητά κάποιον που θα εργάζεται σκληρά, που θα βοηθήσει ώστε να γίνει ευτυχισμένη η κόρη του, έναν άνθρωπο που θα αναλάβει την επιχείρησή του, θα διαφυλάξει και θα διασφαλίσει να συνεχιστεί το έργο του. Όπως είπε δεν τον ενδιαφέρει ο γαμπρός του να έχει πτυχίο ή μεταπτυχιακό ή διδακτορικό αλλά να είναι δουλευταράς. 

Ο 58χρονος εκατομμυριούχος ανέλαβε να πάρει τη μοίρα της κόρης του στα χέρια του και ανέλαβε δράση για αυτό που πιστεύει ότι είναι προς το συμφέρον του μέλλοντός της αν και η ίδια δηλώνει πως θα προτιμούσε να κρατήσει τα λεφτά και να κάνει πλαστικές επεμβάσεις.

          Thomas Merton and I Share a Fire Watch      Cache   Translate Page      

Trappist Blogging
in Honor of Thomas Merton's
100th Birthday:
Essay 1 of 6 on
"Fire Watch, July 4, 1952,"
the epilogue of 
The Sign of Jonas




Part One:  Thomas Merton, Writer

Thomas Merton would have turned 100 this coming Saturday (January 31, 2015).  I’d like to think he would have celebrated it in silence at his beloved monastery Gethsemane near Bardstown, Kentucky.  Maybe he would have ascended Gethsemane’s tower to look out again upon the world, as he described in this passage from the “Fire Watch” epilogue to his book The Sign of Jonas:

And now my whole being breathes the wind which blows through the belfry, and my hand is on the door through which I see the heavens.  The door swings out upon a vast sea of darkness and of prayer.  Will it come like this, the moment of my death?  Will You open a door upon the great forest and set my feet upon a ladder under the moon, and take me out among the stars?
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

Unexpectedly, the door swung open for Merton just 16 years after he wrote “Fire Watch,” accidentally electrocuted while attending an interfaith conference in Bangkok, Thailand in 1968.

Two decades after his death, I began a slow yet steady exploration of his vast legacy of writings.  Most nights, there’s a Merton book by my bed.  In my better moments, I attempt to model my life on him.

Not that I’ve taken vows or adopted a habit of silence!  Celibacy’s not for me and I generally prefer to rise after the sun, not at 4 a.m. for prayers and hymns.  I don’t wear a robe to work.

Eadmer of Canterbury Writing,
Unknown, Flemish, Belgium,
about 1140-1150, tempera colors
gold paint, and ink on parchment,
7 x 4 1/2 in.,
Ms. Ludwig XI 6, fol. 44v
The J. Paul Getty Museum
But after more than twenty-five years of intermittent immersion in Merton’s often profound writings, I’ve become convinced that his central vocation was not being a monk, but being a writer.  He cultivated a writer’s curiosity, always probing and questioning and looking for deeper levels.  While initial spiritual experiences may have taken place while on his knees in monastic prayer (or on his knees in monastic housekeeping), his insights became clarified in recollection afterward, as he religiously wrote in his journal or pecked away on his typewriter.  He sought for a difficult balance, striving to be simultaneously fully awake to the material world while remaining ever conscious of a spiritual dimension behind the veil.  He valued both.  This is the Merton that I hope, in my better moments, to emulate.

I don’t remember why I picked up a biography of Merton in 1986, eighteen years after his tragic accidental death.  I must have heard something that nudged me in his direction.  In any case, I read the biography and it didn’t impress me much.

I don’t remember why I persevered, moving on to The Seven Storey Mountain, Merton’s best-selling autobiographical account of his spiritual awakening, but I do remember the jolt I felt when Merton suddenly connected with me.  Despite all the biographies, reminiscences, critical analyses, and blog entries written about him, an understanding of Merton is inseparable from wrestling with his own words.  He probably wasn’t a saint, but he was an extraordinary writer.

This is why Merton’s experience on the fire watch—a solitary walk through his monastery one night in 1952—opens out onto the universal.  Merton the artist consciously and intentionally shaped a short prose masterpiece out of an experience which is ultimately beyond words.  Through his artistry, “Fire Watch” is a spiritual journey that’s not restricted to Trappist monks on vows of poverty, but accessible to people everywhere.

Part Two:  My Fire Watch, January 24, 2015

The Crescent Moon, detail, by Samuel Palmer (1805-1881),
pen and sepia ink and graphite on wove paper,
Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Collection.

My attempt at a fire watch:

I rise after everyone is asleep.  That’s no easy task as my wife’s a night owl…  It’s much, much later than Merton’s fire watch rounds which began with the monk’s 8 p.m. bedtime.  My wife typically stays up until 2:30 (as, somewhere in Kentucky, the monks are entering their last hour of sleep before their first prayers and hymns of the morning!).

As with Merton’s rounds, a fire watch in my house naturally begins in the basement.  Given our situation, it’s therefore initially more of a water watch than a fire watch.  Opening the basement door, my biggest fear is to see a rising tide of water at the bottom of the stairs (unfortunately, this is an anxiety stemming from experience).  Even with Merton, the term fire watch only captures part of his responsibility.  Fires were frequent in that part of Kentuckyso they were the greatest concern, but the watchman is really called to be on alert for signs of all manner of disaster.  If Merton found a flood in the basement, he’d have to raise the alarm.  He’s the watchman, after all.

So I furtively turn on the basement lights and, with relief, see only dust and shadows below.  I descend the stairs, then check the furnace and the outlets.  I check for any signs of water pooling near the walls.  Nothing to report.

I return back up the stairs, entering the kitchen.  I check the oven and the coffee maker, then sniff the air for smoke.  Everything’s off.  Everything’s safe.  I cross into the dining room and notice I should change the table cloth.  But that’s not a fire watch job; it can wait.  And so it goes as I move along a sort of oval path through our living room, the foyer, the family room (passing the curious dog), the laundry room, the powder room, and back to the kitchen.  The watchman sees no cause for alarm.

At this point in his duties, Merton enters into the silence and contemplates the deeper call of his work.  The silent nighttime patrol isn’t really about safety at all:

The fire watch is an examination of conscience in which your task as watchman suddenly appears in its true light:  a pretext devised by God to isolate you, and to search your soul with lamps and questions, in the heart of darkness.
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

Alone on the first floor, with my wife and daughter asleep above me on the second, I pause to think.  My outward responsibility as watchman is to protect.  But, according to Merton, my equally important inward task is to embrace this opportunity to be with God in the darkness, “in the house that will one day perish.”  So I settle into the silence.

The furnace rattles on.  The dog looks up.  I feel distracted.

The next stage of the fire watch beckons.  I ascend the stairs to the second floor, flashlight in hand.  Everything looks as it should.  As with Merton, “the flashlight creates a little alert tennis ball upon the walls and floors.”  I shouldn’t wake them.  We watchmen must keep our vows of silence.

I have a wife and a daughter living at home, and a son away at college in Maine.  I feel my job should be to protect them all.  The watchman must be ever vigilant.  But in the silence and darkness, knowing my Merton-assigned task is to simply be with God, it becomes obvious that this house’s watchman is helpless.  My wife is wrapped in a solitary silence.  My daughter is sound asleep.  Six hundred miles away, my son is alone in his dorm room.  And the watchman is alone in the hall, solitary and powerless to keep anyone truly safe.

In our shared helplessness, I share something in common with Thomas Merton, on July 4, 1952, wandering alone through the monastery, enduring an examination of conscience, isolated in the heart of darkness.

Between the silence of God and the silence of my own soul, stands the silence of the souls entrusted to me.  Immersed in these three silences, I realize that the questions I ask myself about them are perhaps no more than a surmise.  And perhaps the most urgent and practical renunciation is the renunciation of all questions.
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

There’s little I can do—of practical value anyway—so I head back to bed.  

In Kentucky, in a monastery near Bardstown, Merton’s brothers are waking up as I fall back to sleep.

          Penuh Dengan Kejutan! 5 Sebab Ini Kenapa Korang Wajib Tonton Filem Box Office Thailand Pee Nak!      Cache   Translate Page      


Bila sebut Pee Nak, ramai akan samakan filem ini dengan filem sequence yang lain termasuk Mae Nak, Nang Nak dan Pee Mak. Tahukah anda filem Pee Nak adalah berbeza dengan 3 filem yang disebutkan tadi?

Filem Pee Nak secara dasarnya berlaku di sebuah wat dan tujuan tiga rakan ini ke sana adalah untuk bertasbih demi membuang nasib malang dan memperbetulkan hidup mereka. Namun, sepanjang mereka di sana terdapat pelbagai perkara aneh berlaku sehingga nyaris gagal menyempurnakan niat masing-masing.


Kami ‘belanja’ lima sebab kenapa anda perlu pergi ke pawagam dan tonton filem komedi seram dari Thailand ini. Memang gelak tak berhenti dari awal sampai habis!


Seram dan penuh suspend



Babak pertama dimulakan dengan seorang lelaki berpakaian lengkap Nak kelihatan berjalan masuk ke sebuah Wat. Dia kemudian menemui seorang lelaki misteri bermaharaja di dalam Wat tersebut sehingga membuatkan dia berlari meninggalkan perkarangan Wat.

Apa yang lebih menyeramkan adalah dia terlihat beberapa orang berpakaian tradisional Thai dan tidak berkepala sedang berarak menghampirinya. Adegan demi adegan mendebarkan dan menyeramkan ini membuatkan penonton tak senang duduk! Bagi mereka yang meminati genre filem seram terutamanya filem Thailand, inilah filem wajib untuk ditonton!

Lawak spontan semua pelakon



Selain dari seram, filem ini bermain dengan emosi penonton untuk gelak sampai pecah perut! Setiap babak drama atau seram akan dicampur dengan komedi spontan dari lakonan 3 sahabat ini. Karakteristik lembut pada watak Balloon dan First turut memeriahkan suasana sehingga menyebabkan satu panggung ketawa. Peranan setiap watak dimainkan memberi kesan besar dalam filem ini. Penuh emosi dan kelakar.

Meleleh air mata



Walaupun filem ini berunsurkan seram komedi, namun filem itu turut berjaya membuatkan kami sebak dan hampir menangis. Babak di mana aksi Nak dan ibunya di akhir filem ini memperlihatkan bagaimana dua anak-beranak ini bertukar tangisan kerana terlalu kasih antara satu satu lain. Nak dikenali anak yang sangat patuh dan taat terhadap ibunya sehingga sanggup berkorban apa sahaja demi memenuhi hasrat ibunya. Kalau nak tahu lebih lanjut, anda kenalah tengok sendiri. Jangan lupa sediakan tisu yer!

Gabungan pelakon mantap



Gabungan tiga pelakon hebat ini berjaya menghidupkan genre seram, komedi dan drama. Vachiravit Paisarnkulwong (tengah) sebelum ini pernah membintangi drama bersiri Notification (2018), Be Hide The Sin (2018) dan Kong Kam (2019). Vachiravit dalam filem ini memegang watak sebagai Nong, seorang pemuda yang tidak mempercayai upacara Nak atau monk untuk menyelesaikan sebarang masalah yang dihadapinya.

Bhuripat Vejvongsatechavat (kanan) pernah berlakon dalam filem 3 AM (2018) dan Ghost Ship (2015). Dia memegang watak sebagai First, seorang lelaki gay yang kaya dan mempunyai masalah dengan ayah. Bagaimanapun, dia sanggup buat apa sahaja bagi memenangi hati ayahnya itu sehinggakan dia bersetuju menyertai upacara Nak ini.

Manakala, Witthawat Rattanaboonbaramee (kiri) merupakan seorang Youtube Influence di Thailand. Menerusi filem ini dia memegang watak Ballon seorang lelaki gay dan menguruskan peniagaan online. Dia telah berniat sekiranya memenangi loteri, dia akan ke Wat dan menunaikan hasrat menjadi Nak.

Sentuhan pengarah Mike



Phontharis Chotkijsadarsopon atau lebih dikenali Mike telah mengarahkan beberapa buah filem seram Thailand termasuk Still 2 (2014) dan Ghost Ship (2015).

Filem Pee Nak ini tercetus dari idea berdasarkan pengalaman pengarah ini sendiri semasa dia berhasrat dan ke Wat untuk menjadi Sami. Persoalan tercetus apabila dia memahami proses keagamaan menjadi Nak sebelum diangkat menjadi Sami (monk).

Lagenda Naga (dragon) atau mitos ular diketengahkan dalam mengangkat konflik filem ini menjadikan manusia yang telah mati (hantu) tidak boleh menyempurnakan upacara dan proses menjadi Sami (monk).

Pengarah ini juga mereka kostum dan mencadangkan tatarias pada watak Nak Non yang telah lama mati supaya kelihatan lebih seram dan menakutkan. Hantu Nak Non dipersiapkan dengan perhiasan menyeramkan termasuk memakai gelang kaki, berpakaian Nak dark-toned, jahitan dan darah di kepalanya. Semua elemen ini menimbulkan unsur seram dalam filem Pee Nak.

Jangan lupa tonton filem komedi-seram, Pee Nak arahan pengarah Phontharis Chotkijsadarsopon (Mike) di pawagam berhampiran anda pada 14 Mac 2019 ini. Kami yakin filem ini akan menepati selera filem seram-komedi yang dinanti ramai!

          Tattoos: A Body Modification or Expression?      Cache   Translate Page      

In today's society people with piercings and tattoos have been seen at a negative perspective. Individuals are judged with the stereotype that piercings and tattoos portray. Yes tattoos do define who an individual is, but, this includes their stories, what they believe in etc.. Not all tattoos make someone a bad person.

"The Tattooed Doctor." Neatorama. Purch, 23 Sept. 2007. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://www.neatorama.com/2007/09/23/the-tattooed-doctor/#!r30u6>.




We begin with the idea of approach. If you cannot approach someone how are you suppose to trust them. Someone we put a lot of our trust into is our doctors. They have our lives in their hands. A recent article explained that tattoos are becoming less problematic in workplaces. Philadelphia's ZB Sports commented, "If I'd pass on [an individual] because of their tattoos, I'd be out a phenomenal employee" (Forbes, 2014). The picture on your left shows a man who is in two positions. The attitude is shown within his stance as the image on the far left shows a concerning doctor that is willing to be of help: Verses the same man on the right slouched forward holding his belt. This demonstrates that even though this is the same man because of his tattoos he is seen as unapproachable. The irony is the photo itself: It is the exact same man but the only exception is his tattoos, would you not let him treat your health because of that?



"Tattooed Teacher." Nkeiruka Sylvanus. Nkeiruka Sylvanus, 23 Nov. 2014. Web. 12 
     Jan. 2015. <http://nkeirukasylvanus.blogspot.ca/>. 
To continue we are brought to the virtues of acceptance, sympathy,compassion and tolerance. The picture on your right is a teacher-in-training that went viral through social media and was in the newspaper. The question that was asked was, “Would you let this woman teach your child?” (Daily Mail, 2014). The actions that were thrown at Charlotte Tumilty, age 26, were not the virtues stated previous. Instead they were the complete opposite. She was asked to cover all of her tattoos as the school did not want "kiddies getting encouraging signals about inking themselves at such a tender age" stated a teacher from the school in Hartlepool. The real question is why would you not if she was certified for the job: As stated above, if you did not hire someone based on their tatoos and appearance you would be out a phenomenal employee. The picture on the upper left portrays conflict, a struggle between opposing forces, the stereotype tattoos bring and a teacher. The attitude within the Charlotte’s face is surprise. Why would someone deny her ability just because of her appearance?

"Veteran." Media NCB. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/621*349/ 
     WEB+War+Paint+1.jpgVeter>. 
Furthermore, people respect Veterans and thank them for their service: Would you deny the service he has done because of tattoos? Of course not.The tattoos shown on this Veteran are not to make him look "bad ass" or "hardcore", instead their stories, they are his stories. The symbolism within this picture is his bare chest. He has been torn apart and stripped from the war, although he may have come home to a family he is left with nothing but his memories. Haunting memories, studies have shown that 20% of all Iraq soldiers suffer from PTSD, and 50% of them do not seek help. If you are going to give a Veteran a judgmental stereotype it should be "bad ass" and "hardcore" but not because of the tattoos on his body because of his bravery. His tattoos should have nothing to do with what he is capable of, instead they're the only thing keeping him and his stories sane.


"Angelina Jolie." Fan Pop s. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://fanpop.com>. 

Finally we touch the topic of Angelina Jolie who portrays a vain, egotistic person on the left photo in the collage. She makes millions of dollars and spends it on stupid things like tattoos right? Wait is that the same woman who has won the humanitarian award several times? Beat Breast Cancer? Adopted Children and looks after her own? Is a loving loyal wife? Visits places all around the world taking care of helpless children? It can't be! But as matter of a fact is it. Jolie's tattoos are not meaningless, as a matter of a fact she has 17 and each one has a special meaning - this also relates back to the Vets tattoos and his stories. The one on her shoulder is the longitude and latitude of each location her children and adopted children were born. She has a huge one on her back that she got done in Thailand to express her involvement with not only her child from Cambodia but also Cambodia itself. When asked about her tattoos, Jolie said, "Usually all my tattoos came at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you've made a self discovery or something you've come to a conclusion about" (USA Today Interview, July 17, 2003). The real Angelina Jolie is shown within the right side of the collage, a loving mother for her five children, and a loving humanitarian who cares for many children around the world. Her tattoos do not make her vain and egotistic, she has depth, she shows meaning throughout her body.

In conclusion, all 4 images prove that the negative attitude towards tattoos and piercings are inaccurate. Each image includes a public figure that is thought of highly. Tattoos do not define who a person is as they are just expressing themselves through a piece of art. This piece of art should not be looked at negatively and be able to destroy what that person is capable of.

          Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium      Cache   Translate Page      
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.

          Neil 'The Grifty One' Bush Asked Chinese Dudes For Illegal Campaign Money? That Can't Be Right.      Cache   Translate Page      


We are shocked, shocked to learn that Neil Bush was involved in scammy campaign financing in the 2016 election, oh golly. The Federal Election Commission hit "Right to Rise," the super-PAC that fluffed his brother Jeb's campaign, with a record-setting fine after Neil solicited donations from Chinese nationals Neil was in business with. Mother Jones has the deets on the illegal campaign donation:


Neil Bush, who has extensive business dealings in China, solicited the $1.3 million contribution from American Pacific International Capital (APIC), an international investment holding company where Neil is a board member. Although the contribution to Jeb's super-PAC came from the American arm of APIC, the company's owners are Chinese, and Neil Bush initially solicited the money from two Chinese nationals -- Gordon Tang, the chair of APIC, and Huaidan Chen, a board member. The FEC has fined APIC $550,000 and Right to Rise $390,000.

The total fine, $940,000, is the biggest campaign fine in a single case since the Supremes opened the way to unlimited corporate spending on super-PACs in the Citizens United case. Haha, remember when Barack Obama said at the 2010 State of the Union that decision would "open the floodgates for special interests, including foreign corporations, to spend without limits in our elections," and Samuel Alito angrily shook his head and muttered "not true"? Clearly, Obama owes an apology to Alito: In this case, a foreign company did direct an assload of money at a US campaign, but it got caught this time, so there's no problem!

The donation was the subject of a complaint from those meddling good-government watchdogs at the Campaign Legal Center. The CLC's Brendan Fischer said APIC's

"illegal $1.3 million [donation] is a direct result of Citizens United," Fischer says, since before that 2010 Supreme Court decision, companies could not donate unlimited amounts of money to super-PACs.

It certainly comes as one great big surprise that Neil Bush somehow got caught up in a grifty illegal campaign donation scheme, since he's led such an otherwise blameless life. Wonkette's Ken Layne wrote one of the all-time best summaries of the shady exploits of the often-overlooked Fredo of the Bush boys in 2006, and we're still amazed that "Neil Bush" has somehow never been as notorious a name as "Billy Carter" or "Roger Clinton." Not only did Neil run a crooked savings and loan where he "shuffled millions of dollars to his own oil-exploration front company in Texas while approving hundreds of millions in 'loans' to the S&L;'s other executives," he also managed to walk away from it all without getting prosecuted. Certainly couldn't have anything to do with his daddy being VP at the time of the scandal. That would be an awfully cynical view.

Neil followed up with a whole string of big business deals that traded on the family name (and Poppy Bush's time as US ambassador in China), but just as often failed. And we'd somehow managed to forget the Asian sex tourism that came to light during his 2003 divorce. Well heck, you should NEVER forget the Asian sex tourism! Which apparently happened without Neil even knowing he was a sex tourist, of course:

He admitted in the deposition that he previously had sex with several other women while on trips to Thailand and Hong Kong at least five years ago.

The women, he said, simply knocked on the door of his hotel room, entered and had sex with him. He said he did not know if they were prostitutes because they never asked for money and he did not pay them.

"Mr. Bush, you have to admit it's a pretty remarkable thing for a man just to go to a hotel room door and open it and have a woman standing there and have sex with her," Brown said.

"It was very unusual," Bush said.

We suppose Bush might have tried to argue something similar happened with donations to his brother's US super-PAC, from his Chinese business partners, except that, as MoJo details, Bush actually made the ask in an email. He may have thought he was following the very careful steps that would make a donation from the US subsidiary of a Chinese company legal, but hey, it's Neil Bush, so his conversations with Tang -- in Singapore -- and emails to Huaidan Chen actually documented that the donations were in fact illegally solicited from foreigns. (An American in the US division of APIC was also included in the email solicitation, but that didn't make it legal.)

Which gets to the bigger picture here: Since Citizens United opened the door to unlimited corporate spending on elections, the FEC's punishment of this one instance of foreign money in the 2016 campaign -- helpfully documented by Neil Bush's emails -- may be a fluke:

"Corporations being able to spend unlimited amounts of money in our elections opens the door to foreign influence," Fischer says. "If the actors were a little more sophisticated, they could have avoided an FEC investigation. There's every indication that this is the tip of the iceberg, that foreign money is coming into our elections through nonprofits and corporations, but without any detection."

Got that, would-be campaign scammers? Don't be Neil Bush: Hide your tracks better. Just say the foreign money knocked on your door, walked right in, and had its way with you without you even knowing what was happening, leaving you pleasantly surprised.

The solution to all this is really quite obvious: Since it's really hard to document where exactly campaign money comes from, the Supremes will just have to allow EVERYTHING. It's the American way.

          Comment on Pad Thai by Thomas      Cache   Translate Page      
I just returned from Thailand where I went on two food tours in Bangkok as well as tried out places on my own. I had Pad Thai a number of times and specifically researched into the "best" pad thai places in Bangkok and what was surprising was how widely they varied in taste and flavor. Some were dull and tasteless. The best one I had was actually at a random street stall with no real name and only one very busy and amazingly efficient cook. David, if you enjoyed Vietnam for the food, you really should try to go to Bangkok. In addition to the Thai cuisines, there's a huge and ancient Chinatown in Bangkok with fabulous food. The better of the two food tours I took focused on Chinatown and took us to tiny hole in wall places off back alleys that themselves were off of other back alleys! and the food was cooked straight on the street itself. I had some incredibly flavorful broth and noodles that I still savor in my memory. And the malls themselves have excellent food courts with a wide range of Thai and Asian food stalls, so don't rule those out either.

Sasha Ingber | NPR

On Tuesday, a Bahraini refugee soccer player who was jailed and facing deportation arguably got his biggest goal — citizenship in a foreign country.

Hakeem al-Araibi, 25, was one of about 200 people who became Australia citizens at a ceremony in Melbourne.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison fastened his own Australia flag pin to Araibi's jacket. "I'll take the new one," he said. "But this is for you, which you can wear very proudly, as our newest Australian but as someone whose Australian values have always been deep in his heart."

The developments in Araibi's life triggered outcry among human rights activists, sports enthusiasts and lawmakers across the globe.

Araibi used to play on the national soccer team in the small Persian Gulf state of Bahrain. In 2012, authorities arrested him. In 2014, a court convicted him in absentia of torching a police station, handing him a prison sentence of 10 years. The professional soccer player fled Bahrain that year.

He had been living in Australia as a refugee until last November, when he landed in Thailand during his honeymoon. Thai officials arrested him on an Interpol red notice. He spent two months in jail, facing extradition to Bahrain.

"I could still remember the tone in Hakeem's voice," Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, the director of advocacy for the London-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy, tells NPR. "He was telling me about his sleepless nights, like it was a film running back in his head. Remembering everything in detail about how he was abused in Bahrain detention."

Araibi was beaten, especially on his legs and feet just to remind him that he would not play soccer again, Alwadaei says.

He says video footage showed that Araibi was playing in a televised soccer match when the alleged vandalism occurred.

Inside Bangkok Remand Prison, Araibi told The Guardian that "Bahrain wants me back to punish me" for speaking publicly about human rights abuses and discrimination against Shia Muslims by Sunni leaders.

Under international pressure, Thai prosecutors dropped the case in February and Araibi was released from a Bangkok prison cell. Bahrain withdrew its extradition request but on the same day, the minister of foreign affairs gave the ambassador of Australia to Bahrain a memorandum with the international arrest warrant issued against Araibi.

On Tuesday, the soccer player announced that he finally felt safe. "No one can follow me now," he tweeted.

In attendance at the ceremony was Craig Foster, an Australian sports analyst and retired soccer player who worked tirelessly to raise awareness of Araibi's case. "May we learn from the experience as a nation, treat every asylum seeker as supportively, with corresponding compassion as Hakeem. All deserve equal dignity, opportunity," he said.

Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne told a crowd from the podium about the widespread concern for Araibi's welfare. Public support "played an enormous part in ensuring he was returned to Australia," she said.

His soccer club, Pascoe Vale, described Tuesday's event as "a moment we all have been waiting for." It added that his example showed how soccer can break down barriers and unite people.

Araibi is currently training and trying to regain the strength he lost while away from soccer, according to The Guardian.

Alwadaei says Tuesday's joy only goes so far.

"Although someone managed to escape the torture doesn't mean that their family members will be immune from consequences from the government," he says. Araibi's brother, who was imprisoned on the same charges, remains behind bars, Alwadaei says.

He adds that many more political prisoners are languishing in Bahrain.

"Although Hakeem got unprecedented support from the international community simply for his affiliation with [soccer]," he says, "there are thousands of other individuals who simply have no one to advocate on their behalf simply because they don't happen to be a famous athlete or to have the community behind them."

          Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium      Cache   Translate Page      
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.

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.

          Refugee Soccer Player Hakeem al-Araibi Granted Australian Citizenship       Cache   Translate Page      

On Tuesday, a Bahraini refugee soccer player who was jailed and facing deportation arguably got his biggest goal — citizenship in a foreign country.

Hakeem al-Araibi, 25, was one of about 200 people who became Australia citizens at a ceremony in Melbourne.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison fastened his own Australia flag pin to Araibi's jacket. "I'll take the new one," he said. "But this is for you, which you can wear very proudly, as our newest Australian but as someone whose Australian values have always been deep in his heart."

The developments in Araibi's life triggered outcry among human rights activists, sports enthusiasts and lawmakers across the globe.

Araibi used to play on the national soccer team in the small Persian Gulf state of Bahrain. In 2012, authorities arrested him. In 2014, a court convicted him in absentia of torching a police station, handing him a prison sentence of 10 years. The professional soccer player fled Bahrain that year.

He had been living in Australia as a refugee until last November, when he landed in Thailand during his honeymoon. Thai officials arrested him on an Interpol red notice. He spent two months in jail, facing extradition to Bahrain.

"I could still remember the tone in Hakeem's voice," Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, the director of advocacy for the London-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy, tells NPR. "He was telling me about his sleepless nights, like it was a film running back in his head. Remembering everything in detail about how he was abused in Bahrain detention."

Araibi was beaten, especially on his legs and feet just to remind him that he would not play soccer again, Alwadaei says.

He says video footage showed that Araibi was playing in a televised soccer match when the alleged vandalism occurred.

Inside Bangkok Remand Prison, Araibi told The Guardian that "Bahrain wants me back to punish me" for speaking publicly about human rights abuses and discrimination against Shia Muslims by Sunni leaders.

Under international pressure, Thai prosecutors dropped the case in February and Araibi was released from a Bangkok prison cell. Bahrain withdrew its extradition request but on the same day, the minister of foreign affairs gave the ambassador of Australia to Bahrain a memorandum with the international arrest warrant issued against Araibi.

On Tuesday, the soccer player announced that he finally felt safe. "No one can follow me now," he tweeted.

In attendance at the ceremony was Craig Foster, an Australian sports analyst and retired soccer player who worked tirelessly to raise awareness of Araibi's case. "May we learn from the experience as a nation, treat every asylum seeker as supportively, with corresponding compassion as Hakeem. All deserve equal dignity, opportunity," he said.

Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne told a crowd from the podium about the widespread concern for Araibi's welfare. Public support "played an enormous part in ensuring he was returned to Australia," she said.

His soccer club, Pascoe Vale, described Tuesday's event as "a moment we all have been waiting for." It added that his example showed how soccer can break down barriers and unite people.

Araibi is currently training and trying to regain the strength he lost while away from soccer, according to The Guardian.

Alwadaei says Tuesday's joy only goes so far.

"Although someone managed to escape the torture doesn't mean that their family members will be immune from consequences from the government," he says. Araibi's brother, who was imprisoned on the same charges, remains behind bars, Alwadaei says.

He adds that many more political prisoners are languishing in Bahrain.

"Although Hakeem got unprecedented support from the international community simply for his affiliation with [soccer]," he says, "there are thousands of other individuals who simply have no one to advocate on their behalf simply because they don't happen to be a famous athlete or to have the community behind them."

          Did Cassie and Colton Get Their Happily Ever After on The Bachelor? Here's What Went Down      Cache   Translate Page      

After a very rocky road to love over the last few weeks on The Bachelor, Colton Underwood finally narrowed down the competition to one woman during part two of the season finale: Cassie Randolph! If you've been watching the former NFL player's season from the start, hopefully his top choice shouldn't come as a surprise. Like, at all.

As a reminder, Colton showed a strong interest in Cassie from the moment she stepped out of the limo and presented him with a literal case of the butterflies on the very first night. The move earned her a rose, and the rest of their one-on-one dates throughout the season made it painfully obvious just how much Colton, 27, was into the 23-year-old aspiring speech pathologist. They had chemistry to spare, but in the end, it wasn't enough to save them from a few devastating setbacks.

During Colton's visit to Cassie's hometown of Huntington Beach, CA, he clashed with her father, who made his doubts about the future of Cassie's relationship with Colton obvious (he also refused to grant Colton his blessing to propose to Cassie). The following week, her dad made an impromptu visit to her hotel room in Portugal to further explain himself, which only muddled Cassie's already-confused feelings about Colton even further. She ended up self-eliminating and shattered Colton's heart in the process; he'd declared his love to her just moments before, saying, "I care for you. I love you. I want it to be you at the end of this."

The heartbreaking end of their date led to Colton's infamous fence jump, and it seemed like the end of the road for Colton and Cassie. However, the season 23 finale confirms that the pair are in it for the long haul, fence or no fence.

After breaking up with both Tayshia and Hannah G., Colton went straight to Cassie to pour his heart out. Although she was certainly shocked by his appearance and told him that she didn't break up with him so that he'd leave the other women, she was quickly won over by his grand gesture.

The pair furthered their relationship in Mallorca, Spain, bonding over a romantic dinner and discussing what they want from each other. In the end, they both decided that despite not ending the season with the usual proposal, they wanted to keep dating to see where things lead. But where did things lead that night? A shared hotel room, of course!

That's right - Colton and Cassie spent the night together. Did he lose his virginity? Well, Colton said "a gentleman never kisses and tells," but they both seemed pretty damn happy about it the morning after. The couple are still together and over the moon about it, as evidenced by their lovey-dovey joint appearance on the "After the Final Rose" special on Tuesday night.

"It's definitely something we've talked about, yeah," Cassie said of any plans for an engagement. "I mean nothing is holding me back right now." Colton also chimed in, saying, "We still have a lot of conversations to have, and room to grow . . . we're having fun dating right now."

The finale ended with Colton giving Cassie a final rose on stage during the special, and Chris Harrison gifted the couple with a lavish vacation in Thailand (as well as an impromptu performance by "legendary band" Air Supply).

If you're still recovering from the shock of Colton and Cassie's ups and downs, you're definitely not alone - keep reading to see Bachelor Nation's best reactions to the finale, ahead!


          Thailand Decides To Make Its Terrible Cybersecurity Law Even Worse      Cache   Translate Page      

More censorship and encryption-breaking is on the way, thanks to the Thai government's broad interpretation of the term "cybersecurity." The government has been leaning heavily on American social media companies to disappear content critical of… you guessed it, the government. To keep the king from being insulted too often (or for too long), the government is also exploring undermining website encryption and holding service providers directly (and criminally) responsible for the words and deeds of their users.

Another round of amendments has made Thailand's cybersecurity law worse. It seems almost impossible, given its history. And yet here we are, watching as the government gives itself everything it wants, leaving citizens with the dubious privilege of generating tons of data the government can access at will.

The bill (available in Thai) was amended late last year following criticism over potential data access, but it passed the country’s parliament with 133 positives votes and no rejections, although there were 16 absentees.

There are concerns around a number of clauses, chiefly the potential for the government — which came to power via a military coup in 2014 — to search and seize data and equipment in cases that are deemed issues of national emergency. That could enable internet traffic monitoring and access to private data, including communications, without a court order.

Naturally, everyone but the government is concerned about these amendments. The Asia Internet Coalition has issued a statement expressing these concerns. All of its concerns are valid. And, considering the history of this law and this government, all are likely to be ignored.

The bugs listed in the AIC's statement are considered features by a government that has a long history of silencing dissent and jailing critics.

Protecting online security is a top priority; however, the Law’s ambiguously defined scope, vague language and lack of safeguards raises serious privacy concerns for both individuals and businesses, especially provisions that allow overreaching authority to search and seize data and electronic equipment without proper legal oversight. This would give the regime sweeping powers to monitor online traffic in the name of an emergency or as a preventive measure, potentially compromising private and corporate data.

Vague language and a lack of safeguards. Overreaching authority and lack of oversight. That's exactly what the Thai government wants. This is deliberate. This is what's wanted by governments all over the world. The US government wants this. So does the Australian government. The UK government has spent most of the past decade refining its overreach and scaling back its oversight.

This isn't just a Thai problem. It's a government problem. But the Thai problem is made worse by its disturbing (and ancient) lese majeste laws, which add some old school twists to its cyber pretensions. But the script is otherwise identical: the same ideas pushed by other governments, using the same "security" pitch to strip citizens of their protections and privacy.

          [ Dream Interpretation ] Open Question : PLS IN NEED FOR HELP! I’m having a problem with a twin flame/soul connection. I dream about him & miss he like crazy don’t know what to do?      Cache   Translate Page      
Last year I went through a rough time, one night I found this app that connects to snapchat to meet new people. Turned out half of them were guys sending nudes so I went and messed with each guy I was deleting by sending them old lady & whatever. Then I came across a guy that was next to delete/block when we started talking & talking and that lasted almost a year. It started with him wanting fun, lust, lies & what not & me just passing my time enjoying the show but not giving in but the more we talk the more things started to change... feelings grew, respect, the relationship or whatever I’ll say twin flame was taking a turn. There was fights due to me always thinking he was talking with another girl that caused us to be very cold with each other from talking 24/7 to just one message pro day then he came back for a month & was this beautiful person I got to see a different side then he ghosted me. First I got over it but now it’s killing me. People say to me I’m young (19) he’s far in Sweden (31), his been to Thailand many times with family/friends talking about that place with such passion but all my friends believe he went for sex especially since he said he likes fake prostitution porn. Also told me he isn’t a big fan of condoms. So there was many problems. even tho he said he never will pay for sex. Here are the text pls read to understand https://hairpichelp.tumblr.com/post/174107178185 I got a reading done that he misses me & thinks he wants to come back better to me

          Thank You      Cache   Translate Page      

Now that we have finished our 18,000km bicycle tour and basked in the glory of our achievement for the past few weeks, it’s time to admit that we never could have done it without the many kind souls who helped us out along the way. ||

While we planned our trip, we read many inspiring blogs and books and contacted several experienced cyclists for advice. Special mentions go to Anne Mustoe’s book A Bike Ride, which was our first inspiration for cycle touring, and Alastair Humphrey’s brilliant books about his round-the-world cycle tour.

Al Humphreys also organised a pub night in London where we met other cycle tourers - Friedel and Andrew from TravellingTwo, who had already helped us out with lots of advice before our meet-up and have since published a Bike Touring Survival Guide that is packed full of useful tips and information. We also met Justin and Emma from Rolling Tales, who were about to embark on their own journey to New Zealand and who we later met again in Turkey, and Di who we ended up cycling with from Budapest to Istanbul. Tara and Tyler from Going Slowly answered our many pre departure questions via Skype from their tent in Romania and we had the pleasure of catching up with them in Bangkok. Many other blogs provided inspiration as well as practical advice and helped us gain the courage to embark on our own journey.

On our first day leaving London our friends Gerry and Dom cycled out with us. That night we were offered a bed by Andrea in Dartford via the Warmshowers website, making for a great start to our journey. During our tour we were hosted by many other people who invited us into their homes: Catherine & Mathieu in Metz, Charlotte in Strasbourg, Sandra & Alex in Böblingen, Jürgen in Vienna, Ulas in Turkey, Hossein & Sohra in Iran, Mahmud & Mahdie in Iran, Ahmad and his family in Iran, Melanie in Abu Dhabi, Chuen and his mum in Singapore, Ruth & Glen in Darwin, Paul & Jenny in Adelaide, John & Rachel near Timboon, Peter & Corinne in Wye River and Tony & Pam in Fairhaven on the last night of our tour.

Countless people helped us along the way by stopping for a chat, giving us directions, presenting us with food or drinks, waving or giving us the the thumbs up, buying us a meal or inviting us to into their homes, letting us camp in their garden, taking us on tours of their local area or even doing water drops for us in the Australian Outback. There are too many to name, but you know who you are and we will always remember your acts of kindness.

Along the way, some of our friends and family came out to visit us. It was great to see familiar faces en route. Gudrun came to meet us in Ulm, Freddie’s parents, sister and brother-in-law visited us in Vienna, Tony showed us around Budapest, Janna & Marco and Gerry came out to Istanbul, Abhishek & Priya and Amol introduced us to Mumbai, Nick & Aom met us in Bangkok and Nick spent a week cycling with us in Thailand, we met up with Beng near Kuala Lumpur, Tze-Ern and Ben took us out for a meal in Singapore and Guy’s sister Justine visited us in Adelaide. The prize for the most visits however goes to Freddie’s dad, Gerhard, who came out to see us 3 times – in Vienna, Istanbul and Dubai. Each time he carried a parcel full of spare parts, hand delivered from Germany, as well as sponsoring us some treats along the way.

A special thank you goes to everyone who has made a donation to SOS Children’s Villages to sponsor our ride, and to the charity itself who invited us to visit one of their villages in Kerala, India.

When planning our tour, we made sure that our gear was high quality, durable and light weight. The companies supplying our gear have for the most part been extremely helpful when something did go wrong. Icebreaker replaced a worn T-Shirt for free, Ortlieb sent us replacement clips for our panniers, Thermarest sent us two (!) new sleeping mats (the original one had delaminated and the first replacement was lost in the mail), General Ecology sponsored us a new First Need water filter cartridge, and Bikesportz sponsored us new Panaracer tyres.

A huge thank you to the crew at SJS who supplied us with our Thorn Raven bicycles which have served us loyally for over 23,000km without any major issues, not even a broken spoke. They were the most important kit item and they never let us down and certainly the upgrades to double walled rims, thick spokes and Rohloff hub were integral in this.

Our families have been extremely patient and supportive. Despite the fact that they sometimes worried about us, they never complained about our extended tour and always tried to act as if it was normal that we’d call them up from a phone booth in Iran announcing we’d be out of touch for the next 8 days as we were about to cross a desert.

Finally, we have really enjoyed writing this blog and connecting with people through our website, Twitter and more recently Facebook. We still get pretty excited when we receive a message or comment, and the encouragement of our readers has seen us through some tough times. Twitter in particular has allowed us to hook up with many interesting people along the way who were on their own extended cycle tours.

We hope that we were able to pass on some useful information and learnings to people planning their own tour to close the loop and give back what we received when we first started out.

-- THANK YOU!

When the park of her dreams needs saving, only June’s imagination can bring it back to life!


A tribute to creativity, Wonder Park tells the story of 10-year-old June, a wildly imaginative young girl who builds models of amusements parks with rides like the Skyflinger, Fantastic Fish Carousel, and Zero-G-Land with her mother. When June gets older, she starts to lose her sense of wonder and begins to shun her childhood ideas, including the idea of the park, packing away her models away. Nevertheless, her childhood catches up with her!

One day whilst exploring deep in the woods, in a magical moment, she discovers a roller coaster car buried under ivy. It transports her to a fantastical wonder park, like the ones she used to build, populated by animals who were its past employees. But the park is broken down, abandoned and in a state of decay.

June soon rediscovers the wonder of her world, and teams up with a whole host of talking animals to restore the park to its full glory, complete with spinning contraptions and inverting roller coasters, all whilst contending with a invasion of a army of cheeky chimpanzombies looking to stir up all kinds of destructive mischief.

The US version of the movie includes Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Rules Don’t Apply, The Producers) as Dad, Jennifer Garner (Nine Lives, The Tribes of Palos Verdes) as Mom, Kenan Thompson (All That, Kenan & Kel, Good Burger, SNL) as Gus, Ken Jeong (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Bob’s Burgers) as Cooper, Mila Kunis (Family Guy, A Bad Moms Christmas) as Greta, John Oliver (The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, live-action Lion King) as Steve, Ken Hudson Campbell, who voiced Boomer the Bear, Sofia Mali as Young June, Brianna Denski (Momsters: When Moms Go Bad) as June, Oev Michael Urbas as Banky, Norbert Leo Butz (Bloodline) as Peanut, Kate McGregor-Stewart as Aunt Albertine, Kevin Chamberlin as Uncle Tony, Kath Soucie (Rugrats, Hey Arnold!) as Bus Counselor Shannon, and Noen Perez as Chatty Kid.


The PG-rated film is written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) from a story by Applebaum (Origin), Nemec (Knightfall), and Robert Gordon (Galaxy Quest). Appelbaum, Nemec, and Kendra Haaland serve as producers, with Karen Rosenfelt and Don Hahn executive producing. The movie is being produced by Paramount Animation, Nickelodeon Movies and Ilion Animation Studios. A director has yet to be announced for the movie.

Wonder Park is scheduled to roll into theaters on Friday, March 15, 2019. An animated television series based on the film will also debut on Nickelodeon in 2019.

Funrise, Inc. will serve as the worldwide master toy partner for the franchise.

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   Translate Page      
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.

          Pad Thai Cookbook, Sangdad Books      Cache   Translate Page      
This new Pad Thai Cookbook from one of Thailand's top cookbook publishers, shows you how to make many different recipes for Thailand's most famous noodle dish, Pad Thai and includes interesting background information about this famous noodle dish along with recipes for other popular Thai noodle dishes. 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.

          The 2012.      Cache   Translate Page      
It is my very first blog update here in year 2012. I just don't really have the time to update or maybe change my blog skin or whatever. So here am I right now having 4 days holiday for the Good Friday and the upcoming Easter Day. Pheeeew! Finally I got some time to spend on Facebook and somehow, on blog as well. Well, I don't think people are following my blog too. Haha! Blog is just like a diary for me to voice out everything that I wanted to.

Alright, let's come back to the point of blogging. So, how is it goes for your year 2012? The year of Dragon, LOL! As for me, so far it has been a hectic year. Pretty exhausted with my job and everything. It doesn't seems to go smooth on whatever things I am doing. First of all, I was planning to pursue my career in other field or getting myself with a better offer or opportunity but it does not work. I'm over high demand I guess and now I am stick with another half year contract and let's see how it goes in the future for the 6 months later. Secondly, getting myself healthier a lil this year. I mean it. I went for GYM!!!!! Yes, baybehhh, I am going for a workout! LOL! Finally I made it which I have been planning this for like few years? :P And finally I can experience in a better lifestyle. Clubbing or drinking no longer included! :P

Basically, I got nothing much to say besides my job because I don't really have time for other stuffs besides of working in the office for like 8 hours -13 hours , 5 days in a week? Saturday and Sunday always the best days ever which I can have a relief. No suffering from the freaking annoying jam, no working doubts, no emails, no escalations, no issues, the important thing is NOT FACING THE 2 MONITORS that I need to face every single second in work. Pathetic huh? Yea, it is. In Hokkien, people would describe this as "Jek Ak". Haha! Since now, I do have gym and going to take workout classes soon, my daily life is pack and I don't think I do have time for some hangover or maybe get a date? :P Well, I don't have a date, so no worries. This is what good on a single people like me. I feel great sometimes and especially when I am thinking of that SOMEONE. And with my packed schedules, now, I no longer have time to think about this person, indeed. ;) Well, a great start isn't it? *Wheeeeeeeeeeeee*

And next, I do have some plans in this year. Although it might not fulfill but yet, still need a plan isn't it? The important tool in fulfilling my wish would definitely be...... MONEY $$$ ! Yes, money! I need cashhhhhhhhh to go for some trips. Seriously, I wanna travel, and I wish to travel this year. Like going to Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Australia, Thailand even local would be good as well. Maybe other states in Malaysia like Perak, Melaka, Kuala Lumpur or whatever places that is cool to have some vacations! But yet, I still don't have the budget. Just try my best to get all this done soon! :D

That's all for my update. See you guys sooner or later? IDK. :p

Happy Good Friday and Easter Day!






          Hannah B.'s Season of The Bachelorette Got a Wild Start During The Live Bachelor Finale      Cache   Translate Page      

If fans thought that The Bachelor's two-night finale was wild, they were in for a treat! After Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph decided to make happily ever after happen under their own terms, we got a lovely update on the happy couple after their journey on The Bachelor. There's still no ring (yet), but Colton revealed that he moved to Los Angeles - closer to Cassie - and the two are planning on traveling a bit more in the upcoming months.

"It's definitely something we've talked about, yeah," Cassie said of any plans for an engagement. "I mean, nothing is holding me back right now." Colton chimed in, saying, "We still have a lot of conversations to have and room to grow . . . we're having fun dating right now."

Honestly, that's a beautifully healthy place for a couple to be when they've only be exclusively dating for such a short time! At the end of the finale, Colton gave Cassie a symbolic final rose on stage and Chris Harrison gifted the couple with a lavish vacation in Thailand (the country where they had their first one-on-one date).

Once Bachelor Nation was satisfied with Cassie and Colton's happy ending, Chris Harrison introduced us all to the next Bachelorette: Hannah Brown! The former Miss Alabama was adorably awestruck by her new title. "I feel all the emotions, but honestly, I'm just really grateful for this opportunity," she said.

But it wasn't enough to just introduce us to our new Bachelorette - Chris told Hannah that she would actually be meeting her first five contestants that very night! The stage was quickly transformed for an "impromptu" rose ceremony, and Chris gave a brief pep talk worthy of any varsity coach encouraging his team before the all-important final game. Hannah was visibly nervous but totally game to meet the first five of her 30 suitors, one of whom actually made a rap for her! We wonder if he compared notes with Hannah G.?

Following along with Colton's theme of straying from the norm, Hannah decided to give away her first rose that very night, which has never happened before! Cam the Rapper snagged the rose and possibly even a bit of Hannah's heart. It's safe to say that he will definitely be the one to watch when The Bachelorette returns to ABC on Monday, May 13!

          Zurique- Zurich- Zürich      Cache   Translate Page      
Zurique foi a cidade que escolhemos pra conhecer na Suiça. O trajeto de trem entre Itália e Suiça (com uma conexão em Milão), na minha opinião foi o mais lindo. A paisagem é encantadora, ver as geleiras nos alpes...foi incrível.
Quando chegamos, aquela chuvinha chata ameaçava a cair, o tempo estava nublado...mas nada que tirasse a nossa empolgação de conhecer o país do relógio, do chocolate, do canivete, do banco, do queijo... rs.
Bom, no primeiro dia não tínhamos idéia pra onde ir, então pedimos sugestões pra uma menina que trabalha no bar do hostel. Não sei se disse isso aqui no blog, mas a melhor maneira de conhecer um lugar é andar andar e andar! Foi o que decidimos fazer. Pegamos um tram bem ao lado no hostel e descemos na Old Town.














O preço do tram: O ticket para um dia inteiro custa CFH (Francos Suiços) 8.20 e pra usar somente uma vez CFH 2.60. Não quero ser repetitiva, apenas não quero ver ningúem pagando multa, portanto, não esqueçam de validar o ticket heimmm! rsrs. Por via das duvidas validavamos na entrada do tram e na saída, rs. A distância do hostel até a Old Town de tram é de apenas 6 minutos.
O que me surpreeendeu em Zurique, fora a beleza foi o silencio das pessoas nas ruas, sempre elegantes e educadas. Finesse total! rs.
Bom, vamos as fotinhas do tram:


O Tran é ótimo! Na tela aparece qual a próxima estação e em quantos minutos chegará ao seu destino. Queria muito um desses no Brasil!

O hostel! Super recomendado também! No terreo ha um bar e tem sempre musica de banda estilo underground ( que eu adooro) a noite. Depois das 10pm, os hospedes tem direito a uma cerveja ou um refri. 
Ficamos em um quarto para 8 pessoas. Eu me lembro que tinha um casal dos Estados Unidos (me esqueci de qual cidade), um japa (coreano, thailandes, chines...me desculpe a ignorancia, mas reconhecer a descendência de um olhinho puxado, ainda é dificil pra mim), um senhor que roncava e um brasileiro, de Minas...o Daniel que ficou nosso amigo. Tiramos uma foto com ele, olha só:


Detalhe pra cara de "sertaneja" da Isa, hahaha!
Continuando, o hostel tem um quarto e um banheiro por andar. O chuveiro é "louco", rs, esquenta somente por 5 minutos e depois lá vem água fria. Mas já é um desafio proposto pelo hostel pra economizar energia. No ultimo dia ja estava acostumada com o "sistema", rs.
O café da manhã é incluso e bom! O dono do hostel é super gente fina!
Fotos do quarto:







Infelizmente o período foi curto, mas saí de lá com vontade de voltar e conhecer Genebra, Lucerna, Berna...a listinha é grande.

Um "adendo" neste post: Essa semana eu volto pros EUA, então vou confessar que o tempo ta bem curto porque tenho que arrumar a mala, correr atras dos ultimos detalhes, despedir dos amigos e familiares (pior parte), então vou me atrasar um pouquinho pra escrever o proximo post no qual falarei sobre Paris! Mas assim que eu tiver um tempinho legal, eu venho contar aqui.

          Boeing 737 MAX 8: US Says 'no Basis' To Suspend Troubled Jet, But 45 Countries Disagree      Cache   Translate Page      

US aviation regulators said there was "no basis" to suspend flights of Boeing's 737 MAX jet after two fatal crashes that prompted several airlines and at least 45 countries to either ground the troubled aircraft or bar it from their airspace. "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft. Nor have other civil aviation authorities provided data to us that would warrant action," the Federal Aviation Administration's acting administrator Daniel Elwell, said. The groundings come after an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed on Sunday, six minutes after take-off, killing all 157 people on board, including seven Chinese nationals and one Hongkonger. On October 29 last year, another MAX jet flown by Indonesia's Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea, 12 minutes after take-off, killing all 189 passengers and crew. China's Boeing 737 MAX ban signals challenge to US power in civil aviation As of Wednesday morning Hong Kong time, at least the US, Canada, Panama, Thailand, Mauritania and Kazakhstan permitted airlines to fly the 737 MAX, for now. The United Arab Emirates and New Zealand on Wednesday joined the growing list of countries to ban the MAX jet from their airspace. That came after the European Union followed China's lead in grounding the US aircraft. Hong Kong remained one of the handful of jurisdictions in Asia that had not imposed restrictions on the aircraft. It is unclear if the Civil Aviation Department would change its mind on Wednesday. China's decision to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 driven by safety concerns Indian airline SpiceJet flies the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft between New Delhi and Hong Kong. However, flights have been suspended after India's aviation watchdog ordered a safety assessment of the aircraft. Russia's S7 Airlines, which flies the 737 MAX 8 between Novosibirsk and Hong Kong, was set to continue unless Russia also halted flights of the planes. Turkish Airlines, one of the largest carriers in the world, said it was suspending use of its 12 MAX aircraft from Wednesday, until "uncertainty" was clarified. Low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle, South Korea's Eastar Jet and South Africa's Comair also said they would halt flights. The three US airlines using the 737 MAX - Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines - stood by the aircraft, as calls from members of the US Congress to ban the Boeing 737 MAX from US airspace increased. Republicans Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz joined several Democratic lawmakers in advocating for restrictions similar to those imposed by a growing list of nations. US President Donald Trump also weighed in with a blistering tweet on Tuesday: "Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly." "Pilot are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT," he wrote, referring to the prestigious university. Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly. Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better. Split second decisions are.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 12, 2019

Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders on Tuesday said it was too early to announce a meeting with Xi.

"In terms of whether or not we have a date set, not yet," she said at the White House. "We're continuing negotiations with China. When we have an announcement for the two leaders to sit down, we'll let you know."...

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.

          Satu Alasan Karya Modifikator Indonesia Sulit Bersaing di Tingkat Internasional      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Industri kreatif modifikasi kendaraan di Indonesia sudah tidak bisa dipandang sebelah mata. Banyak modifikator Tanah Air, baik roda empat maupun roda dua yang mampu menghasilkan karya yang luar biasa, bahkan sudah bisa sejajar dengan builder luar negeri.

Namun permasalahan yang terjadi saat ini, banyak para modifikator dalam negeri yang memang tidak bisa ikut kontes di luar negeri. Bahkan, PT HIN Promosindo sebagai penyelenggara kontes modifikasi Indonesia Automodified (IAM), yang sudah menggelar acaranya di luar negeri, seperti Malaysia, Thailand, dan Singapura jarang membawa karya anak bangsa untuk menjadi peserta.

Dijelaskan CEO PT HIN Promosindo, Reza Aliwarga, banyak kendala untuk melakukan pengiriman mobil ke luar negeri. Terlebih, pengurusan izin mobil untuk kembali masuk ke Indonesia, padahal saat keluar dari Indonesia tidak begitu sulit prosedurnya.

"Kami pernah kirim satu mobil ke Malaysia, namun saat balik tertahan di pelabuhan selama enam bulan. Mungkin mereka melakukan pemeriksaan, apa ada barang ilegal atau apa, saya juga tidak tahu. Kendalanya itu saja, agar karya anak bangsa bisa berkompetisi di luar negeri," jelas Reza saat berbincang dengan wartawan di bilangan Jakarta Selatan, belum lama ini.

Lanjutnya, untuk biaya pengiriman mobil dari Indonesia ke Malaysia, memang cukup mahal, hingga US$ 9 ribu atau setara dengan Rp 129 jutaan.

"Biaya balik (Malaysia ke Indonesia) juga sama, tapi tetap saja surat-surat izinnya lebih ketat," tegasnya.

Selanjutnya

Dengan begitu, para pelaku modifikasi di Indonesia berharap, untuk proses pengiriman kendaraan modifikasi, dan juga proses balik ke Indonesia bisa lebih cepat.

"Karena takut perizinan lama, mobil stay di Pelabuhan, jadi para pemilik mobil kecewa. Padahal saya yakin, Indonesia bisa menang karena hasil modifikasinya sudah bagus dan tidak kalah dibanding hasil negara lain," pungkasnya.

          Tiga Alasan Mengapa Berikan Tip Untuk Pengemudi Online Decacorn      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Kehadiran transportasi online decacorn menjadi solusi efekfif bagi masyarakat yang butuh akselerasi dan kenyamanan. Mau transportasi online mobil, motor, atau taksi sekalipun, ada baiknya sebagai penumpang memberikan kesan yang berbeda.

Salah satunya memberikan tip. Ya, tip sebenarnya memang bukan kewajiban penumpang kepada pengemudi. Namun ada tiga alasan yang melandasi mengapa kamu memberikan tip pada berikut ini:

1. Tertawa

Pernahkah kamu mendapati pengemudi yang sering bercanda? Candaannya tentu membuatmu tersenyum dan tertawa. Nah pengemudi yang seperti ini ada baiknya kamu berikan tip perjalanan. Dia pasti senang dengan tip yang diterimanya.

2. Membawakan Barang

Belum naik ke kendaraanmu, tapi sang pengemudi sudah menawarkan bantuannya untuk membantu membawa barangmu, seperti koper, tas, atau bahkan barang belanjaan sekalipun. Jika mendapati pengemudi seperti ini, kamu bisa memberikan tip padanya.

3. Bentuk Menghargai

Memberikan tip menjadi bentuk menghargai pekerjaan pengemudi. Terkadang memberikan tip tak perlu dua alasan di atas. Mungkin saja, kamu melihat pengemudi dari sisi lain. Misalnya, dia tetap mengambil pesananmu di tengah hujan.

Dari ketiga hal di atas, sekarang kamu juga enggak perlu khawatir dalam memberikan tip. Tip pada pengemudi Grab sebagai startup decacorn misalnya. Kamu bisa memberikan tip tanpa repot dan tanpa tunai.

Tinggal pilih jumlah yang telah ditetapkan untuk tip. Jumlah tersebut akan dibebankan langsung ke metode pembayaran pilihanmu. Oh ya, kalau lupa memberikan tip usai menyelesaikan perjalanan, tak masalah.

Itu karena kamu punya waktu hingga 72 jam setelah perjalanan selesai, untuk memberi nilai dan tip kepada pengemudi di riwayat perjalanan.

Untuk diketahui kenyamanan yang diberikan untuk penumpang dan pengemudi ini merupakan bentuk keseimbangan Grab sebagai startup decacorn dalam melayani. Tapi apa itu decacorn?

Decacorn merupakan istilah untuk perusahaan rintisan yang memiliki valuasi sebesar USD10 miliar atau setara dengan Rp140 triliun.

Valuasi tersebut menjadi jumlah atau nilai perusahaan untuk investor yang akan menanamkan modal di perusahaan rintisan tersebut.

Dengan kata lain, kalau ada investor yang mau menanamkan saham di Grab, dia harus memiliki dana atau modal sebesar Rp140 triliun.

Pencapaian Grab sebagai startup decacorn ini merupakan kerja keras selama diluncurkan pada 2012. Grab kini bahkan sudah tersebar di delapan negara, seperti Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapura, Filipina, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, dan Kamboja.

Layanan Grab sebagai online-to-offline (O2O) mobile platform bahkan kini sudah mencapai tiga miliar kilometer perjalanan se-Asia Tenggara.

          Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World      Cache   Translate Page      
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)


Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago

Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.

“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.

Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.

In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.



You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.

If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

Sodomy Laws around the World

In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.

This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.

In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.

In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

Primera: en estos meses de fuga voluntaria mi pasaporte cuenta con sellos de 6 paises diferentes!  Me raje. Me fui de viaje.


Lamentablemente, este pobre y abandonado blog trata de mi dura adaptacion en la "increible" ciudad de NY... asique, no da robarles con fotos de China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Tailandia, Brasil o de mi querido Buenos Aires...no?  O quizas si, como para que vean lo increible que son algunas otras ciudades y que no todo es niu iork, niu iork! (y para justificar mi abandono, claro)

Si pudiera vivir en un avion, lo haria... claro que, con algunas condiciones. Suprimime el olor a gente apretujada y alientos cansados de horas de viaje eternas. Cambiame el menu de vez en cuando y deja en paz al chicken, beef or pasta?. Habilitame la latita de 7 Up entera, manga de amarretes! Dos almohadas, sin pelos si es posible, y una frazadita que no sea tan de plastico, es mucho pedir? Cientificos, ingenieros y geniecitos del mundo entero: inventen de una buena vez la teletranportacion.

Volviendo al tema que nos compete: Nueva York y este pobre blog, o mejor dicho, el abandono del mismo. Mi segunda excusa: me mudo, nos mudamos. De pais, de cultura y segun algunos (algunos "mal enseñados") de continente. NY pasara a ser un recuerdo vivido y miles de experiencias acumuladas. Pero como todavia hay tiempo (mes, mes y medio aprox.) intentare compartir algo mas, a mi modo claro, de este experimento. Y, por supuesto, les debo una buena y merecida despedida!

pdi: gente que programo visitarme en NY : haganlo YA o nunca.

          Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium      Cache   Translate Page      
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 .

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.

          Chi sono gli esperti israeliani che recuperano le salme delle vittime del Boeing      Cache   Translate Page      

Sono gli 'angeli' che arrivano pochi minuti dopo un evento catastrofico, che sia un attacco terroristico o un disastro naturale: gli esperti israeliani di Zaka (acronimo in ebraico per 'identificazione delle vittime di disastro), oltre 3.600 volontari, operativi 24 ore su 24, che entrano in azione non solo in patria ma anche all'estero, ogni volta che le loro capacità, internazionalmente riconosciute anche dall'Onu, vengono richieste.

L'ultimo caso è quello dell'aereo dell'Ethiopian Airlines, schiantatosi al suolo domenica mattina con 157 persone a bordo, tra cui due israeliani.

Sul posto è stata immediatamente inviata una delegazione: "La velocità" di intervento è fondamentale, "arrivare sul posto di un incidente entro i primi vitali minuti o le prime vitali 48 ore nel caso del crollo di un edificio o di un disastro naturale" è cruciale, ha sottolineato in un'intervista David Rose, direttore internazionale di Zaka, e lui stesso veterano tra i volontari, molti di loro ebrei ultra-ortodossi.

Svolgono lavoro di primo soccorso, assistendo le attività delle ambulanze, e aiutano nell'identificazione delle vittime del terrorismo, impegnandosi nella raccolta dei resti per assicurare loro una degna sepoltura secondo la legge ebraica.

I corpi sono sacri

Proprio così mossero i primi passi nel 1989, in occasione di un attentato contro un autobus.

Sei anni dopo venne ufficialmente fondata da Yehuda Meshi-Zahav l'organizzazione civile di volontari Zaka, il cui motto è "salvare coloro che possono essere salvati, onorare quelli che non si possono salvare".

La vittima viene "trattata in modo sacro, a prescindere dalla sua religione o razza: questa è la più alta forma di 'vera virtù', aiutare qualcuno che non può esprimere la sua gratitudine", ha spiegato Rose.

Negli anni hanno anche diversificato i loro campi d'azione, creando unità specializzate sulle due ruote, per le operazioni in montagna o sotto'acqua, insieme ai gruppi speciali rivolti alle comunità di drusi e beduini.

Alla ricerca degli scomparsi

Parallelamente a questo impegno sul fronte di incidenti e attentati, i volontari collaborano anche nella ricerca di persone scomparse, in Israele e all'estero, così come nelle operazioni di ricerca e salvataggio di fronte a incidenti di massa.

È il caso degli tsunami in Thailandia (2004) e Giappone (2011), il devastante terremoto che ha colpito Haiti nel 2010 o il sisma del 2015 in Nepal, così come gli uragani contro New Orleans (2005), Houston e Florida (2017).

Nel 2018, furono tra le prime organizzazioni umanitarie internazionali ad arrivare dopo l'eruzione del vulcano guatemalteco Fuego, impegnando l'unità Zaka che era stata creata pochi mesi prima nel Paese centro-americano, grazie all'addestramento di soccorritori e volontari della comunità ebraica locale.

          ผอ.วิจัยทีดีอาร์ไอ หนุนปั้นแรงงานอาชีวศึกษาสร้างชาติได้        Cache   Translate Page      

ผอ.วิจัยทีดีอาร์ไอ ชี้ไทยต้องเพิ่มผลิตภาพประเทศด้วยการพัฒนาแรงงานที่มีทักษะสูง โดยเฉพาะแรงงานในภาคอุตสาหกรรมซึ่งพบว่าในรอบ 10 ปีสามารถเพิ่มผลิตภาพได้มากกว่า 30%  แต่อุตสาหกรรมไทย ก็ยังจ้างแรงงานสายอาชีพน้อยมาก  อีกทั้งภายใต้การส่งเสริมตามกรอบ EEC จำเป็นต้องใช้แรงงานอาชีวศึกษาถึง 173,705 คน ยังผลิตกำลังคนไม่เพียงพออีกถึง 55,462 คน หรือ 32%  แนะดูตัวอย่างความร่วมมือวิทยาลัยเทคนิคไทยกับวิทยาลัยโพลีเทคนิคจีนจะช่วยปั้นแรงงานอาชีวศึกษาสร้างชาติได้ 

ที่มาภาพ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4wAX3SnSPw

13 มี.ค.2562 สถาบันวิจัยเพื่อการพัฒนาประเทศไทย หรือทีดีอาร์ไอ รายงานว่า ดร.ยงยุทธ แฉล้มวงษ์ ผอ.วิจัยด้านการพัฒนาแรงงาน ทีดีอาร์ไอ เปิดเผยว่า จากข้อมูลในช่วง 10 ปีที่ผ่านมาพบว่า  ไทยยังจ้างแรงงานทักษะต่ำถึงปานกลางเป็นแรงงานเข้มข้น ถึง 84% ใช้แรงงานระดับช่างเทคนิค และ แรงงานวิชาชีพ เพียง 16% ขณะที่ในเอเชีย ประเทศที่พัฒนาแล้วใช้แรงงานระดับสูง สูงถึง 60-70%  การที่ประเทศไทยยังติดอยู่กับการผลิต ที่มีมูลค่าเพิ่มต่ำ คือ ความล้มเหลว ในการกระจายความเจริญไปยังชนบท ที่มีคนอยู่ในภาคเกษตรมากกว่า 14 ล้านคน ต้องเผชิญชะตากรรมราคาสินค้าเกษตรตกต่ำผันผวน ผลผลิตไม่แน่นอนขึ้นกับ ดินฟ้าอากาศ ผลิตภาพของแรงงานในสาขาเกษตรจึงต่ำสุดและเกือบไม่เปลี่ยนแปลง ในช่วง 10 ปีที่ผ่านมา มีเพียงภาคอุตสาหกรรมซึ่งมีคนทำงาน ไม่เกิน 6 ล้านคน มีผลิตภาพแรงงานสูงสุด รองลงมาคือ ภาคบริการ มีคนทำงานอยู่ มากกว่า 17 ล้านคน ดังนั้น ถ้าจะเร่งเพิ่มผลิตภาพแรงงานต้องเน้นไปที่ภาคอุตสาหกรรมเป็นลำดับแรก ซึ่งสามารถเพิ่มผลิตภาพได้มากกว่า 30% ในรอบ 10 ปี  และเมื่อดูการใช้กำลังคนในภาคอุตสาหกรรม

ผอ.วิจัยทีดีอาร์ไอ ให้ข้อสังเกตว่า มีการใช้แรงงานระดับ ปวช. และ ปวส. เพิ่มขึ้นจากปี 2550 ถึง 2560 จาก 9.5% เป็น 11.9% ตามลำดับ แต่อุตสาหกรรมไทย ก็ยังจ้างแรงงานสายอาชีพน้อยมาก  และจากทิศทางการใช้กำลังคนในอดีต ทำให้เห็นการเพิ่มสัดส่วนการใช้กำลังคนอาชีวศึกษาในภาคอุตสาหกรรมมากขึ้น แต่ยังไม่เป็นไปตามกรอบความคาดหวังของรัฐบาลที่ต้องการส่งเสริมให้อาชีวะสร้างชาติโดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งแนวโน้ม การส่งเสริมอุตสาหกรรม 4.0 ภายใต้ การส่งเสริมตามกรอบ EEC  จำเป็นต้อง ใช้แรงงานอาชีวศึกษา ถึง 173,705 คน ซึ่งยังผลิตกำลังคนไม่เพียงพอ (Excess demand) อีกถึง 55,462 คน หรือ 32%

ทั้งนี้จากการศึกษา Vocational Education in Thailand : Its Evolution, Strengths Limitations, and Blueprint for future ของตนและ ดร. วรรณวิศา สืบนุสรณ์ พบว่า คุณภาพของผู้กำลังเรียนเกือบ 1 ล้านคน ในวิทยาลัยของรัฐและเอกชน มีปัญหา เชิงคุณภาพ 4 ประการ คือ 1) คุณภาพของผู้สมัครเรียนคะแนนไม่สูงนัก 2) คุณภาพของผู้สอนยังไม่ดี ขาดประสบการณ์ 3) หลักสูตรการเรียนการสอนไม่ทันสมัย ส่วนใหญ่ไม่ใช่หลักสูตรฐานสมรรถนะ 4) อุปกรณ์ล้าสมัย ซึ่งเป็นปัญหาที่จะต้อง ได้รับการแก้ไขโดยด่วน

นอกจากนี้ จากประสบการณ์ที่มีโอกาสดูงานหลายวิทยาลัยโพลีเทคนิคในประเทศจีน คิดว่าอาจต้องปรับเปลี่ยนวิธีการโดยเน้นไปที่การรับเด็กเรียนดีที่ยากจนหรือให้ทุนทุกคนที่สนใจมาเรียน ในสาขาที่ต้องการจนถึงระดับ ปวส. หรือ อาจรับผู้จบ ปวช. เข้ามาทำงานถ้าอายุครบ 18 ปี ให้ทำงานพร้อมเรียนไปด้วย โดยต้องเป็นความร่วมมือระหว่างสถานประกอบการกับวิทยาลัยเทคนิคในเขตพื้นที่ ซึ่งอาจจำเป็นต้องอุดหนุนค่าเล่าเรียนและที่พัก พร้อมการันตีมีงานทำ ได้เงินเดือนสูง เทียบเท่าปริญญาตรีสายทั่วไป      

สำหรับครูช่างที่กำลังทยอยเกษียณหลายพันคนในช่วง 5 ปีข้างหน้า ต้องรับครูใหม่มาแทน และยกระดับครูในช่วง 2 ปีนี้ ภายใต้ความช่วยเหลือจากวิทยาลัยโพลีเทคนิคของจีนหลายแห่งในโครงการ Belt and Roads initiatives ส่งครูไปเรียนเพิ่มเติมในทุกสาขาที่นำมาสนับสนุน การพัฒนา EEC หรือการยกระดับเป็นอุตสาหกรรม 4.0 

จุดเด่นของวิทยาลัยโพลีเทคนิคของจีน คือ มีอุปกรณ์ที่ทันสมัย เพียงพอต่อการฝึกฝน ขณะเดียวกันทางคณะกรรมการอาชีวศึกษาของไทยจะต้องเร่งสร้างห้องทดลองกลาง มี model ให้ฝึกทักษะอย่างครบวงจร ถ้าไม่สร้างใหม่ก็เลือกบางวิทยาลัยเทคนิคเป็นเป้าหมายการปรับปรุงภาคละอย่างน้อย 1 แห่ง ถ้างบประมาณไม่มี ก็ควรพิจารณากู้เงินจากประเทศที่มาลงทุนในไทย เช่น ญี่ปุ่น เกาหลี หรือจีนเพื่อยกระดับครูช่างให้เพิ่มสมรรถนะสูงเพียงพอ ต่อการสอนปีละอย่างน้อย 300 คน  ขณะเดียวกันการรับครูรุ่นใหม่เพิ่มเติม อาจเลือกจากผู้จบเทคโนโลยีบัณฑิตที่เก่งจากสถาบันอาชีวศึกษาทั่วประเทศมาฝึกอบรมเพิ่มเติม ถ้าทำสำเร็จจะมีครูช่างมากเพียงพอแทนครูช่างที่เกษียณ

สำหรับหลักสูตรอย่างน้อยต้องปรับให้เป็นหลักสูตรฐานสมรรถนะทุกระดับการศึกษา โดยใช้สมรรถนะที่ออกไปแล้ว โดยสถาบันคุณวุฒิวิชาชีพและ/หรือ กรมพัฒนาฝีมือแรงงานเอาไปปรับหลักสูตร โดยเฉพาะสาขาที่เป็นที่ต้องการของตลาดแรงงาน หลักสูตรต้องเปลี่ยนได้รวดเร็ว ทันสมัย

ตัวอย่างที่ดีคือ การสร้างความร่วมมือวิทยาลัยเทคนิคไทยกับวิทยาลัยโพลีเทคนิคจีน ซึ่งกำลังดำเนินการอยู่โดยสภาสถาบันการอาชีวศึกษากรุงเทพมหานคร ผ่าน MOU  โดยเลือกปรับหลักสูตรร่วมกันให้นักเรียน  ปวส. ของไทยไปศึกษาและฝึกงานในวิทยาลัยของจีนเป็นเวลา 1 ปี (2 เทอม) เพื่อเรียนรู้ ฝึกใช้เครื่องมือที่ทันสมัย ในสาขา คอมพิวเตอร์ ICT แอนิเมชัน ภาพยนตร์ การซ่อมบำรุงรถไฟ และการขับรถไฟความเร็วสูง การซ่อมบำรุงอากาศยาน การสร้างและฝึกบังคับโดรน ซึ่งจีนมีห้องปฏิบัติการที่ทันสมัยทุกสาขาอาชีพ ที่เป็นที่ต้องการของประเทศ เป็นต้น สำหรับผู้จบการศึกษาจากโครงการ ไทย-จีนจะการันตีงานให้ทำ เงินเดือน สูงกว่าในไทย ได้ co-certificate ของไทย และจีน เพื่อทำงานบริษัทไทยหรือบริษัทจีนในไทยได้

อย่างไรก็ตาม ดร.ยงยุทธ กล่าวว่า การยกตัวอย่างความร่วมมือของไทยกับจีนเช่นนี้  เพื่อต้องการให้ผู้เกี่ยวข้อง และกระทรวงศึกษาไทยได้ตระหนักว่า โลกให้ความสนใจกับผู้เรียนสายอาชีพ อย่างจริงจังและจริงใจแค่ไหน เพราะเขา เชื่อว่าอาชีวศึกษาสร้างชาติได้จริง

          Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium      Cache   Translate Page      
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.

          Teh Impor Asal Thailand Banjiri Pasar Indonesia      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Indonesia tengah kebanjiran teh dari negara lain. Salah satunya dari Thailand atau lebih dikenal dengan sebutan Thai Tea.

Ketua Bidang Kerjasama Dalam dan Luar Negeri Dewan Teh Indonesia (DTI), Iriana Ekasari mengungkapkan, terjadi demand atau permintaan cukup tinggi dari pasar dalam negeri. Namun produksi teh tanah air tidak mencukupi. Padahal, kualitas Thai Tea tidak jauh lebih baik dari teh asli Indonesia.

"Kita juga kebanjiran teh dari Thailand dan ini isinya 400 gram Rp 50 ribu, satu cup sekitar 2 gram. Ini yang banyak dipakai di mall-mall, Thai Tea. Jadi dalamnya tidak lebih baik dari teh kita, kita bisa menghasilkan teh seperti ini," kata dia di Menara Kadin, Jakarta, Rabu (13/3/2019).

Dia mengatakan, Indonesia merupakan pasar yang potensial untuk teh. Sayangnya, industri teh dalam negeri belum mampu memaksimalkan potensi tersebut.

"Jadi pasar kita itu menjadi pasar yang besar untuk teh, cuma bagaimana industri dalam negeri memanfaatkan peningkatan pasar ini," jelas dia.

Dia mengungkapkan, terjadi kenaikan konsumsi di pasar dalam negeri. Namun ironisnya hal tersebut juga dibarengi dengan kenaikan impor teh hingga 400 ribu ton.

Perbandingan impor dibanding ekspor secara volume adalah 27 persen dari total ekspor. "Kita secara value sudah 30 persen. Jadi kalau kita ekspor 100 juta Dolar, kita Impor 27 juta," ungkap dia.

Selain itu, Indonesia dinilai kurang kuat membuat branding tehnya. Sehingga ketika ada turis datang ke Indonesia tidak tertarik untuk membawa pulang teh sebagai oleh-oleh ke negara asalnya.

"Jadi kita sebenarnya punya pasar di dalam negeri. Produksi 140 ribu ton, impor 15 ribu ton, total 155 ribu ton. Ekspornya hanya 49 ribu," ujarnya.

Kondisi ini menjadi tantangan sendiri bagi industri teh tanah air. "Padahal teh kita bisa dijadikan Indonesian Signature yang punya taste sendiri, disinilah tantangan industri untuk berinvestasi supaya teh teh anda menjadi premium dan naik," tutupnya.


          Investor Jual Saham Lagi, IHSG Masih Mampu Naik 23,80 Poin      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Sempat melemah pada awal sesi perdagangan saham, Indeks Harga Saham Gabungan (IHSG) mampu berbalik arah ke zona hijau. Penguatan IHSG itu terjadi di tengah aksi jual investor asing.

Pada penutupan perdagangan saham Rabu (13/3/2019), IHSG menguat 23,80 poin atau 0,37 persen ke posisi 6.377,57. Indeks saham LQ45 naik 0,21 persen ke posisi 996,07. Sebagian besar indeks saham acuan menghijau.

"Di sisi lain, penguatan harga komoditas dunia juga memberikan katalis positif bagi IHSG,” tutur dia saat dihubungi Liputan6.com.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Presiden Jokowi menerima Menteri Luar Negeri Thailand Don Pramudwinai di Istana Merdeka, Jakarta Pusat, Rabu (13/3/2019).

Dalam pertemuan, Jokowi menyampaikan pentingnya konsep kerja sama Indo-Pasifik terkait nasib muslim Rohingya di Kota Rakhine, Myanmar. 

"Mengenai masalah Rakhine State, Presiden menyampaikan pentingnya keterlibatan ASEAN dalam membantu Myanmar di dalam mempersiapkan repatriasi yang sukarela, damai, dan bermartabat," kata Menteri Luar Negeri Retno Marsudi usai melakukan pertemuan di Istana Merdeka, Jakara Pusat, Rabu (13/3/2019). 

Retno mengatakan, Thailand, yang saat ini menjadi Ketua Negara-Negara ASEAN, perlu membahas lebih jauh mengenai rencana itu.

"Hari ini saya mendapatkan laporan dari lapangan sudah proses briefing di Myanmar," ucap mantan Dubes RI untuk Belanda itu. 

Hal tersebut kata dia masih terus fokus dilakukan dari hasil keputusan ASEAN Summit di Singapura pada November Lalu. Indonesia kata dia, secara inisiatif dan ditanggapi dengan negara ASEAN lain.

"Dan Myanmar juga membuka pintunya untuk ASEAN. Jadi mudah-mudahan deployment untuk meet assesment team akan dapat segera dilakukan," kata Retno.

          'The Bachelor' finale recap, part one: Emotions run high as Colton declares, "I'm done with this"      Cache   Translate Page      

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- So where did Colton Underwood head to after jumping the hotel fence last week and running off into the night? We found out Monday on part one of the two-part Bachelor finale.   

Monday’s episode began with host Chris Hanson and his crew finally tracking down Colton, who had just been rejected by Cassie, and convincing him to go back to the hotel. After a long conversation, Colton tells Hanson that despite Tayshia and Hannah G. both expressing their love for him, Cassie was the one who “shut my heart off.” He decided he wasn't going to let Cassie walk away without a fight.

The next day, he shows up at Tayshia’s door and tells her that while she’s “incredible,” his heart belongs to Cassie. They disappear behind her hotel room door where, incredibly, Tayshia, who is in the midst of getting dumped by Colton, ends up consoling him. “So this is, like, it?” she finally asks, to which Colton replies, “Yes.” Reality finally begins to set in as Tayshia rides off in tears.

At the live finale party, Tayshia and Colton faced each other for the first time since the breakup. After pointing out the “amazing moments” they shared together -- bungee jumping, setting off a lantern in Thailand, and skydiving -- she wants to know, “What was missing?” Colton answers that there was nothing wrong with their relationship, but regarding Cassie, his heart was simply “closed off” and “completely hers.”

Meanwhile, Hannah G, having no idea of what has transpired over the past couple of days, waits excitedly for her chance to spend a night with Colton in the Fantasy Suite. But she gets a gut punch when he arrives at her door and he gives her the same speech he gave Tayshia. “I thought it was going to be you,” he tells Hannah, adding “You still remind me of home.” Hannah doesn’t let Colton off the hook as easy as Tayshia did, and says she doesn’t want to leave Portugal without him. He tells her, “You shouldn’t be anybody’s back-up plan.”

“Good luck,” Hannah says, as Colton leaves the room. As she enters the van waiting to take her to the airport, she snaps, “I don’t want to talk about it.” Colton seems to be taking the split even harder, once again sobbing uncontrollably outside the hotel, wondering if he’s given away “a for sure thing for something that’s impossible.”

Back at the live finale, Hannah had another emotional encounter with Colton after pressing him about a particular moment from last Monday’s episode, in which he told Cassie that when he’s with the other women, he’s only thinking of her. “I’d be lying if I said it didn’t feel like a slap in the face when you told Cassie when you were with her you thought about other people," she says. "It sucked.”

When Hanson asks Colton whether it was something he really felt, or if he only said in the height of passion, Colton answers, “Yes, that was something I felt.”

The action then returns to Portugal, where Colton is seen working up the nerve to give another try to saving his relationship with Cassie, thought it seems she's already made up her mind. As Cassie packs her things, she tells the camera that while she’s sad to break up with Colton, she’s just not ready to make a commitment.” All she wants right now is to be “back home with my family and get on with my life.”

The episode ends with Colton knocking on Cassie’s door. The camera breaks away, leaving us with the sound of the door opening and Colton saying, “Hey.”

The Bachelor season 23 finale concludes Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

          CXA, a health-focused digital insurance startup, raises $25M      Cache   Translate Page      

from TechCrunch – Startup and Technology News, on Mar 13

CXA Group, a Singapore-based startup that helps make insurance more accessible and affordable, has raised $25 million for expansion in Asia and later into Europe and North America.

The startup takes a unique route to insurance. Rather than going to consumers directly, it taps corporations to offer their employees health flexible options. That’s to say that instead of rigid plans that force employees to use a certain gym or particular healthcare, a collection over 1,000 programs and options can be tailored to let employees pick what’s relevant or appealing to them. The ultimate goal is to bring value to employees to keep them healthier and lower the overall premiums for their employers.

“Our purpose is to empower personalized choices for better living for employees,” CXA founder and CEO Rosaline Koo told TechCrunch in an interview. “We use data and tech to recommend better choices.”

The company is primarily focused on China, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia where it claims to works with 600 enterprises including Fortune 500 firms. The company has over 200 staff, and it has acquired two traditional insurance brokerages in China to help grow its footprint, gain requisite licenses and its logistics in areas such as health checkups.

We last wrote about CXA in 2017 when it raised a $25 million Series B, and this new Series C round takes it to $58 million from investors to date. Existing backers include B Capital, the BCG-backed fund from Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, EDBI — the investment arm of the Singapore Economic Development Board — and early Go-Jek backer Openspace Ventures, and they are joined by a glut of big-name backers in this round.

Those new investors include a lot of corporates. There’s HSBC, Singtel Innov8 (of Singaporean telco Singtel), Telkom Indonesia MDI Ventures (of Indonesia telco Telkom), Sumitomo Corporation Equity Asia (Japanese trading firm) Muang Thai Fuchsia Ventures (Thailand-based insurance firm), Humanica (Thailand-based HR firm) and PE firm Heritas Venture Fund.

“There are additional insurance companies and strategic partners that we aren’t listing,” said Koo.

Rosaline Koo is founder and CEO of CXA Group

That’s a very deliberate selection of large corporates which is part of a new strategy to widen CXA audience.

The company had initially gone after massive firms — it claims to reach a collective 400,000 employees — but now the goal is to reach SMEs and non-Fortune 500 enterprises. To do that, it is using the reach and connections of larger service companies to reach their customers.

“We believe that banks and telcos can cross-sell insurance and banking services,” said Koo, who grew up in LA and counts benefits broker Mercer on her resume. “With demographic and work life event data, plus health data, we’re able to target the right banking and insurance services.

“We can help move them away from spamming,” she added. “Because we will have the right data to really target the right offering to the right person at the right time. No firm wants an agent sitting in their canteen bothering their staff, now it’s all digital and we’re moving insurance and banking into a new paradigm.”

The ultimate goal is to combat a health problem that Koo believes is only getting worse in the Asia Pacific region.

“Chronic disease comes here 10 years before anywhere else,” she said, citing an Emory research paper which concluded that chronic diseases in Asia are “rising at a rate that exceeds global increases.”

“There’s such a crying need for solutions, but companies can’t force the brokers to lower costs as employees are getting sick… double-digit increases are normal, but we think this approach can help drop them. We want to start changing the cost of healthcare in Asia, where it is an epidemic, using data and personalization at scale in a way to help the community,” Koo added.

Talking to Koo makes it very clear that she is focused on growing CXA’s reach in Asia this year, but further down the line, there are ambitions to expand to other parts of the world. Europe and North America, she said, may come in 2020.

Mahu gaji lebih lumayan, belia cari kerja di luar Kelantan


SELEPAS jenuh mencari kerja di bandar kelahirannya di Bachok, Kelantan, Ahmad Shahril Hafizi pergi ke Thailand untuk cari makan dengan membuat persembahan ular dan api.

Anak muda 23 tahun itu sekarang berulang alik dengan bas ke Sungai Padi di seberang sempadan tiga kali seminggu untuk membuat persembahan. Katanya, dia sudah banyak kali melamar kerja di kampung tetapi semuanya ditolak.

“Anak muda di Kelantan macam pelarian di negeri sendiri, terpaksa keluar untuk cari pekerjaan, sebab dekat negeri sendiri tak ada.

“Kalau nak bekerja sebagai tukang kebun pun belum tentu boleh dapat, saya pernah mohon tapi tak berjaya,” katanya kepada The Malaysian Insight.

Kawannya, Khairul Amar pula berkata kalau dapat kerja pun, gajinya cukup rendah sampaikan tidak boleh menyimpan.

Selepas kontrak kerjanya di sebuah kilang di Pengkalan Chepa ditamatkan, Khairul menganggur lima bulan sebelum bekerja di restoran isteri bapa saudaranya di Rantau Panjang.

Mendengar pengalaman kawan-kawannya tentang gaji yang lebih lumayan di seberang sempadan, dia kemudian pergi bekerja di Thailand.

Jumlah belia Kelantan mencari peluang kerja di luar negeri itu semakin meningkat sejak beberapa tahun kebelakangan.

Angka Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya pada pilihan raya umum lalu juga menunjukkan 250,000 pengundi daripada 1.8 juta penduduknya adalah pengundi luar.

Menurut Yang Dipertua Persatuan Pengguna Islam Kelantan (PPIK) Tuan Haji Mohd Fared Abdul Ghani, walaupun tiada data rasmi jumlah belia Kelantan bekerja di Thailand, angkanya tinggi dan meningkat terutama dalam lima tahun kebelakangan apabila banyak kilang pindah operasi keluar dari Kelantan.

“Hakikat sebenar memang begitu. Memang pekerjaan sukar untuk anak muda Kelantan ini,” katanya kepada The Malaysian Insight.

“Sebabnya kilang banyak dah tak ada. Kita boleh anggarkan hampir 80% telah berpindah operasi yang tinggal cuma, 20%-30%di Padang Tembak.”

PAS mentadbir Kelantan sejak 1990, dan hanya sekali hampir kalah dalam pilihan raya umum 2004 ketika ia mengekalkan majoriti di dewan undangan negeri hanya dengan satu kerusi.

Negeri itu juga mencatatkan keluaran dalam negeri kasar per kapita paling rendah setiap tahun sejak sedekad yang lalu.

Masalahnya, kata Farid, kerajaan negeri yang hanya mengangkat hal keagamaan namun membiarkan isu lain termasuk pelancongan, ekonomi, atau kebajikan belianya.

“Setakat ini kita tak nampak apa misi Kelantan untuk tarik pelaburan. Yang kita nampak medan agamanya sekoloh pondok tahfiz tapi itu tidak memadai.

“Tiada keseimbangan di situ. Kerajaan Kelantan kena fikir juga bidang komersial lain,” katanya.

Farid berkata, isu belia mencari kerja di luar sebelum ini telah diajukan kepada kerajaan Kelantan namun jawapan diberikan amat mengecewakan.

“Kita sendiri ada ajukan tapi jawapan yang mereka berikan kata sebab rakyat Kelantan suka berhijrah.

“Ramai anak muda di sini mereka bukannya suka sangat nak berhijrah. Kalau boleh mereka nak kerja di Kelantan, nak jaga mak ayah, sebab tidak ada pilihan mereka keluar juga.”

Ramai di kalangan kita punya hati yang baik membantu rakan atau kenalan yang berada dalam kesusahan dan perkara sebegini selalunya melibatkan wang dan janji. 

Saat awal meminjam, mulut manis berkata-kata dan menegaskan dirinya akan membayar mengikut tempoh masa yang ditetapkan oleh si peminjam itu sendiri. Tetapi hari berganti hari, minggu berganti minggu dan bulan berganti bulan, hutang masih belum dibayar. 

Apabila si pemberi hutang cuba menuntut kembali wangnya, pelbagai alasan yang diberi kononnya belum gaji.

Jika beginilah perangai orang yang meminjam, jangan kan kenalan, pihak bank pun tak akan luluskan pinjaman sebab tiadanya disiplin diri dalam membayar hutang. 

Itulah nasib yang diterima oleh si pemberi hutang ini yang sudah lama menunggu. Bila dituntut, hanya 'bluetick' yang kelihatan. 

Si peminjam sebelum itu kata dalam kesempitan, tetapi tiba-tiba berkemampuan pula travel ke Krabi Thailand. Cakap tak serupa bikin. 



Elakkan meminjam wang kepada kenalan anda yang berperangai seperti ini yang hanya pandai mempergunakan orang untuk kesenangan diri.

          Storyfort: The One and Only      Cache   Translate Page      
Reema Zaman's "shared memoir," I Am Yours, will be the topic of her talk at Storyfort Over millennia, men have developed an entire language geared toward silencing women, its dictionary filled with words like "crazy," "bitter," "resentful" and many others that brush away women's feelings as particular to a weaker, less self-controlled sex. If there is a throughline in Reema Zaman's memoir, I Am Yours (Amberjack Publishing, 2019), it's the constant, teetering-on-ironic tension between that language and its use to silence an intensely strong woman. "Chup!," her father yelled when a young Zaman balked at his plan to arrange her marriage. (That's Bengali for "silence.") "Don't talk so much," her husband said to her much later in life. "I love you, but it's arrogant to think people want to hear your opinion." (She later left him.) Zaman will speak at Storyfort on Friday, March 22, and the outline of her life is superficially the born-out promise of liberalism and multiculturalism. The product of an arranged marriage herself, she was born in Bangladesh to educated, professional parents, and has lived all over the map—Thailand, Hawaii, Oregon, New York. She attended elite schools and has simultaneously pursued several careers as an actress, artist, educator, model, public speaker and writer. Much of the content of her book, however, shows the ways forces from outside and within threatened to collapse her promise. Her biological father, a flawed but loving man, flirted with disowning his daughter for supporting her mother in their divorce, though he frequently appeared to be more worried about what his peers would say about him as a divorcee than the prospect of being alone. For years, she struggled with an eating disorder. In high school, she was stalked by her psychology teacher. He sent her handwritten messages in red ink, the letters in all caps. He called her on the phone. "You're a naughty girl," he would say. She reported the teacher's behavior to the principal, who confiscated her evidence of the teacher's wrongdoing. A Narratively blog post she later wrote on the subject was picked up by The Guardian, and triggered an international investigation into coverups of misconduct at the school. Some reviews and advance media regarding I Am Yours have painted Zaman's memoir as part of a healing process. Prior to the February release of the book, Zaman told Ms. that she had continued to tweak the manuscript in light of her reflections on the election of President Donald Trump, the #MeToo movement and,…
          12 winners in NextGen Cup Challenge reimagine the future of the fiber to-go cup      Cache   Translate Page      
Solenis LLC creates a barrier coating that is recyclable and compostable.
Winners represent innovations in cup liners, new materials, and reusable service models; six will be provided with support, testing, and piloting to get their solutions on shelf.

The NextGen Consortium, convened by Closed Loop Partners, has announced the winners of the NextGen Cup Challenge—an open-sourced, global innovation challenge to redesign the fiber to-go cup and create a widely recyclable and/or compostable cup.

After a rigorous four-month review process by a group of judges that included NextGen Consortium business leaders, as well as experts in recycling, composting, and packaging, the challenge narrowed the nearly 500 submissions from over 50 countries down to 12 winners.

According to Closed Loop Partners, the winning solutions—broadly categorized intoinnovative cup liners, new materials, and reusable-cup service models—have the potential to turn the 250 billion fiber to-go cups used annually from waste into a valuable material in the recycling system.

Category One winners: Innovative Cup Liners

These companies are rethinking the polyethylene plastic liners in cups that can currently make to-go cups difficult to recycle.

  • C.E.E.R. Schisler, France creates a 100% paper cup that is home compostable and recyclable.
  • Colombier Group, Netherlands, Finland, creates a recyclable and compostable barrier for paperboard cups.
  • Footprint US, USA, creates cups, lids, and straws that are fully formed fiber-based solutions, with an aqueous-based coating that is recyclable and compostable.
  • Kotkamills Oy, Finland, creates plastic-free, recyclable, and compostable cupstock material that can be processed into cups using existing cup-making machines.
  • PTT MCC Biochem Company Limited, Thailand, creates a coated paper cup that is recyclable and home compostable.
  • Solenis LLC, USA, Belgium, creates a barrier coating that is recyclable and compostable.
  • Sun Chemical Corp., USA, creates inks and coatings that are recyclable and compostable.
  • WestRock Corp., USA, creates a recyclable and compostable paperboard solution to cups.

Category Two winners: New Materials

These companies are using cutting-edge, plant-based materials in their cups so that they are compostable.

  • Solublue Ltd., U.K., creates plant-based, food-grade, and non-toxic products that biodegrade after use.

Category Three winners: Reusable Cup Service Models

The cups made by these companies aren’t single-use, they just keep cycling—remaining in service by harnessing the power of technology and design.

  • CupClub, U.K., operates a returnable cup ecosystem, providing a service for drinks. Think bike sharing, but for cups.
  • reCup GmbH, Germany, operates a deposit system for reusable cups. Rent their cup and return it to any participating partner shop. No cleaning of the cup or carrying around required.
  • Revolv, Indonesia, Hong Kong (China), operates a deposit-based platform for smart, reusable beverage packaging, connecting their cups—and third-party products—to Internet of Things technologies.

Up to six winners will enter the NextGen Circular Business Accelerator, where they’ll gain access to a network of experts, business and technical resources, and testing opportunities to ensure these innovations can successfully scale to serve the needs of the industry and maintain known and trusted performance standards.

The Challenge is just the first stage of the NextGen Consortium’s three-year effort. Next, the NextGen Circular Business Accelerator, with testing and piloting opportunities, will help solutions get onto the shelf. Further, the Consortium is working with suppliers, recyclers, and composters to ensure that the winning solutions can get successfully recovered for the highest value. The Consortium will work together to support the needs of the recycling and composting system and identify ways to make it easy for consumers to choose the right bin.

Says John Kelly, Senior Vice President of Global Public Affairs and Social Impact at Starbucks, “This is a notable milestone to achieve our aspiration of sustainable coffee, served sustainably, which is a particular passion for our over 350,000 Starbucks partners. We’re a founding partner of the NextGen Consortium because we believe it will take the scale and influence of many global companies to make recyclable, compostable to-go cups an industry standard rather than the exception.”

Many of the largest players in the food and beverage industry have united within the NextGen Consortium, making it a unique pre-competitive collaboration, Closed Loop Partners explains. Starbucks and McDonald’s were early investors and founding partners of the NextGen Consortium, with The Coca-Cola Company, Yum! Brands, Nestlé, and Wendy’s joining as supporting partners. The World Wildlife Fund acts as an advisory member of the Consortium, and OpenIDEO is an innovation partner.

“The level of interest we saw in the Challenge demonstrates a real appetite for long-lasting sustainable packaging solutions,” says Kate Daly, Executive Director of the Center for the Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners. “This level of industry collaboration in support of the NextGen Cup Challenge is really exciting, and we look forward to building on this momentum to encourage more innovative solutions. Fully recoverable fiber to-go cups are just the beginning."

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2019-03-10 - Widespread marine oxygen declines are stressing sensitive species:

Quote: "It’s potentially very dire..."

Note: Very bad for many (most) species but there are a few species which don't like oxygen, so this is a huge boon for them, in particular the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that produce hydrogen sulfide. I'm sure they're doing just fine...

Quote: "Witness account of the Ethiopian airlines that crashed Sunday killing 157 people on board says the plane came down in flames before it exploded after hitting the ground. It has also been reported that the pilot made a distress call and had been cleared to return at Bole International airport."

Quote: "The Ethiopian plane was new, delivered to the airline in November. The Boeing 737 Max 8 was one of 30 meant for the airline, Boeing said in July. The jet’s last maintenance was on Feb. 4, and it had flown just 1,200 hours. The plane crashed six minutes after departure, plowing into the ground at Hejere near Bishoftu, or Debre Zeit, some 31 miles outside Addis Ababa, at 8:44 a.m. There was no immediate indication why the plane went down in clear weather while on a flight to Nairobi, the capital of neighboring Kenya."

Claim: The cause of swelling in a girl's jaw is determined to be cockroach eggs she got from eating a Taco Bell taco or licking envelopes.

Status: False.


You'll never eat fast food again!

This girl was really in a hurry one day so she just stopped off at a Taco Bell and got a Chicken soft taco and ate it on the way home. Well that night she noticed her jaw was kind of tight and swollen.The next day it was a little worse so she went to her doctor. He said she was just have an allergic reaction to something and gave her some cream to rub on her jaw to help.

After a couple of days the swelling had just gotten worse and she could hardly move her jaw. She went back to her doctor to see what was wrong. Her doctor had no idea so he started to run some test. They scrubbed out the inside of her mouth to get tissue samples and they also took some saliva samples. Well they found out what was wrong.

Apparently her chicken soft taco had a pregnant roach in it that she ate!!!! The eggs then some how got into her saliva glands and she was incubating them in her mouth. They had to remove a couple a layers of her inner mouth to get all the eggs out. If they hadn't figured out what was going on the eggs would have hatched inside the lining of her mouth!

She's suing Taco Bell! Of course.


Claim: Photograph shows a shark attacking a British Navy diver.

Status: False.


Origins: Like thousands of other school-age American kids, in the summer of 1966 I eagerly made my way to the local movie theater for an afternoon screening of Batman, a feature-length film quickly put together to capitalize on the sudden, mammoth popularity of the television series (and to exploit the entertainment needs of millions of youngsters on summer break with no Internet, video games, VCRs, or cable television to keep them amused). What a treat to see Batman and Robin on the big screen in full color (we had only black-and-white TV at home), battling a confederacy of no less than four arch-villains!


One of the early scenes in that film stuck in my impressionable young mind — Batman, out on the water to reconnoiter a buoy, has to fend off the attack of a man-eating (and exploding!) shark, which sinks its teeth into the ladder from which the Caped Crusader perilously clings as he dangles beneath the Batcopter. When I viewed this same film on TV many years later, I couldn't help but laugh uproariously upon noticing that the terrifying sea creature I had breathelssly watched Batman pummel with life-and-death ferocity (and finally vanquish only with liberal application of Bat Shark Repellant) decades earlier was so obviously nothing more than a cheap, shark-shaped piece of plastic affixed to a ladder. (A few glimpses of this scene can be viewed in the Batman original trailer available on the Internet.)


I had nearly the same reaction when readers started forwarding us the above photograph (usually credited to National Geographic magazine or Geo, a similar German-language publication, and mailed under titles such as "Really Bad Day!" or "Jaws 2001" or "Photo of the Year") back in August 2001 to ask if it were real. Alas, like Batman's attacker, it too is a fake, an image created by combining two real but unrelated photographs — a picture of a great white shark taken by South African photographer Charles Maxwell, and an Air Force photo of an HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter from the 129th Rescue Wing, Moffett FAF (a California National Guard unit) snapped by Lance Cheung (with San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge in the background):

Origins: Penny Brown, the little girl who is evidently nothing more than the product of some prankster's imagination, is the longest-lived "missing child" hoax we have chronicled on this site. In all the time since the above-quoted plea to aid in the hunt for her began circulating on the Internet in mid-September 2001 rarely has the term "Penny Brown" dropped off our site's list of top searches even though there was never reason to place any reliance upon the message. None of the many missing children sites listed a Penny Brown among the youngsters they were looking for, and searched of news archives in the U.S. and Canada turned up no news reports about a missing child of this name.

Moreover, the e-mail itself provided few of the details that generally appear in legitimate pleas to help locate missing children. Not even the city or country the child went missing from was mentioned, and other than the pointless "has been missing for now two weeks," no date was given for the disappearance. ("For now two weeks" statements are entirely useless in a medium wherein undated text is circulated — the "two weeks" ago of an e-mail can and often has referred to events years in the past.) E-mail sent to the supplied contact address of zicozicozico@hotmail.com was bounced back to the sender.

Credible missing child reports tend to supply details of when and where the child was last seen, a description of the clothes worn, and phone numbers of people to contact about sightings. This e-mail lacked all of that — not even the parents' names were given.

(We don't know the identity of the girl in the accompanying picture, but the photo definitely isn't one of a young Melissa Gilbert of Little House on the Prairie TV fame.)

One version of the widely-circulated e-mail made it appear the plea was coming from Monzine Jang, a woman who worked for a physician at the University of Calgary. A call to the number provided in the e-mail fetched the following automated voice message:
If you are calling regarding an e-mail about a missing girl, please do not forward it as she is not the daughter of Monzine Jang. Monzine has contacted the Calgary police and missing children organization and she believes this is a hoax.
Another version claimed the frantic mother was Helen Bessenyei, a woman who lived in Australia. Helen had three grown sons, but no daughter, and certainly not a missing nine-year-old named Penny Brown. This hoax left her answering up to 150 e-mails a day and fielding hundreds of phone calls.

Yet another version purported to have come from a woman named Kimberly Leon. An additional version said the child went missing in Austin, Texas. And still another version claimed the child was lost in Ottawa, Ontario. Winning the "farthest away" category was a version that claimed the child went missing in Singapore.

Evern more iterations — these versions translated into French — were "signed" by Carol Toteda of Montreal or Anne-Claire Kubala, the latter giving an address that placed her in Paris. Also placing the tale in Canada was a version "signed" by Annie Lachance that asserted the missing Penny was the child of one of the store managers from Metro-Richelieu (a large grocery store).

Another form of this message that began "We have a store manager from Longs Drugs in Southern California, whose 9 year old daughter has been missing for 2 weeks" was signed "Peggy." Closely related to that version was another that said: "We have a store manager from Longs, SC who has a 9 year old daughter that has been missing for 2 weeks." It too has been signed by "Peggy." In yet another twist, the e-mail appeared signed by one "Penny Hill MS 59, Sunnyvale — AMD."

Those who are still somewhat convinced this e-mailed alert might be true should take a look at the text of the "missing kid" alert quoted in the Example section of our page about Christopher Mineo. In particular, note that the "It only takes 2 seconds to forward this on, if it was your child, you would want all the help you could get" line that is common to both.


Claim: Washing the lint filter in your clothes dryer can help extend the lifespan of that appliance.

Status: True.


Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2005]

<

I had a wonderful morning, the heating unit went out of my dryer! Why does everything seem to fall apart this time of year!???

The guy that fixes things went in to the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. We always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes. He told us that he wanted to show him something. He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. Now, this thing is like a mesh - I'm sure you know what your dryer's lint filter looks like - WELL......the hot water just laid on top of the mesh!!! It didn't go through it at all!!!

He told us that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh and that's what burns out the heating unit. You can't SEE the film, but it's there. He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least every six months. He said that makes the life of the dryer at least twice as long! How about that???!!!! Learn something new everyday!

I certainly didn't know dryer sheets would do that. So, thought I'd share!

Note:

I went to dryer and tested my screen by running water on it. The water collected a little but ran though the screen. I dried it off and was ready to put it back in the dryer since the water ran through it but, I thought was the heck it won't hurt to wash it while I had it out. Warm soap water and a nylon brush and I had it done in 30 seconds.

I then ran the water over the screen and what a difference the water just gushed through it with no puddling at all and this time I was running the water at a faster rate. That repairman knew what he was talking about.

Origins: There are a number of devices and appliances that have been standard household items in American homes since before most of us were born. Electric irons, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, gas (or electric) stoves and ovens, washing machines, and clothes dryers are but a few of the many labor-saving devices so familiar to many of us that we seldom ponder just how they work. Ask the average person, for example, how a clothes dryer works, and you'll probably get an "Are you kidding me?" look in return, along with a terse explanation that a dryer makes stuff "hot," and everybody knows stuff dries faster when it's hot.

That explanation isn't technically wrong (as far as it goes), but it's rather simplistic. Knowing a bit more about the process involved is the key to understanding why the advice to keep your dryer's lint filter clean can help improve the performance and lifespan of your clothes dryer.

In a standard (gas) dryer, a fan pulls fresh air into the dryer and sends it flowing over a gas burner. The burner heats the air, which is then channeled into a tumbling drum where the wet clothes are held. The heat, air flow, and tumbling motion all contribute to evaporating the moisture held in the fabrics, and that moisture is absorbed by the gas-warmed air. (Warm air is capable of holding more moisture than cold air.) The warm air — and the moisture it now holds — passes through a filter to trap lint and other particulate matter stirred up by its movement and is vented to the outside so that it can be replaced with new, less-moist air. This process repeats until enough moisture has been evaporated and carried away for the clothes to be considered sufficiently "dry."

Of course, if you neglect to clean the lint filter between dryings, or something else occludes the filter, moist air cannot be vented from the dryer as easily. The result will be that your dryer will work less efficiently — you will have to run your dryer longer to dry a load of clothes, which means higher electricity and gas charges for you and a shorter lifespan for your dryer.

So, keeping the lint filter clean is one simple way to increase the efficiency and lifespan (and decrease the operating costs) of your dryer. Just removing the lint from the filter isn't always enough — the fine mesh of most dryer filters can be clogged in ways that aren't obvious at a casual glance. As suggested by the piece quoted above, softener sheets can cause waxy build-ups on lint screens that require a little extra effort — usually no more than a quick scrub and rinse in warm, soapy water — to remove.

Many modern dryers also use moisture sensors rather than ordinary timed cycles, and residue from dryer sheets can coat the sensors and interfere with their ability to function properly. Cleaning the sensor screen with a little detergent and a soft brush, and wiping off the sensor itself with a cotton ball and some rubbing alcohol can rectify this problem.


Claim: Starbucks refused free product to G.I.s serving in Iraq, saying it didn't support the war and anyone in it.

Status: False.


Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]



I have indeed confirmed the fact that Starbucks charged rescue workers $130.00 for 3 cases of bottled water on September 11, 2001, so the following info that was passed on to me would not be surprising to me at all!!

Dear everyone: Please pass this along to anyone you know, this needs to get out in the open. Recently Marines over in Iraq supporting this country in OIF wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffee and try to score some free coffee grounds. Starbucks wrote back telling the Marines thanks for their support in their business, but that they don't support the War and anyone in it and that they won't send them the Coffee. So as not to offend them we should not support in buying any Starbucks products. As a War vet and writing to you patriots I feel we should get this out in the open. I know this War might not be very popular with some folks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys on the ground fighting street to street and house to house for what they and I believe is right. If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you can discard it and I'll never know. Thanks very much for your support to me, and I know you'll all be there again here soon when I deploy once more.

Origins: We first encountered this story in late April 2004 when it turned up in our inbox. In these days of heightened patriotism and concern for the troops, any rumor about a corporate giant snubbing those who are putting their lives on the line overseas is bound to make a number of folks hot under the collar, which is what this e-mail has done.

We've been in touch with the e-mail's writer and have asked him about the events that led to his penning the note about Starbucks' response to Marines who had come to them looking for a donation of coffee. Sgt. Wright (who is stationed Stateside at the moment but who will be deployed overseas in the next few months), heard the story from a friend, who had gotten it from someone else. He talked things over with the Marine who had supposedly contacted Starbucks, and that, coupled with that night's televised news about the goings on in Iraq, made his blood boil. He pounded out his thoughts into the form of an e-mail, which he mailed to ten of his friends.

It is that e-mail which continues to circulate to this day. Sgt. Wright has since learned that what he heard was in error, and he has subsequently tried to set things right by issuing the following retraction:

Dear Readers,

Almost 5 months ago I sent an email to you my faithful friends. I did a wrong thou that needs to be cleared up. I heard from word of mouth about how Starbucks said they didn't support the war and all. I was having enough of that kind of talk and didn't do my research properly like I should have. This is not true. Starbucks supports the men and women in uniform. They have personally contacted me and I have been sent many of their Company's policy on this issue. So I apologize for this quick wrong letter I sent out to you. Now I ask that you all pass this email around to everyone you passed the last one to. Thank you very much for understanding about this.

Howard C. Wright
Sgt USMC

Sgt. Wright has been unable to produce the reply his buddy supposedly received from Starbucks, and the folks at Starbucks deny engaging in any correspondence on such matter prior to this rumor coming along. Given that no copy of the letter appears to exist, neither one resting in the hands of the Sergeant's comrade, nor one residing in Starbucks' files, the rumor about the java vendor's harsh response to a coffee-hunting Marine should be dismissed.

As for what Starbucks has to say about the matter, while it doesn't directly refute the rumor on its web site, it does at least provide somewhat of an answer in e-mail. An excerpt from that statement reads:

Starbucks has the deepest respect and admiration for U.S. military personnel. We are extremely grateful to the men and women who serve stateside or overseas. We sincerely appreciate that they are willing to risk their lives to protect Americans and our values of freedom and democracy. While Starbucks as a company cannot directly donate to military personnel, many of our partners (employees) show their support by donating coffee.

Starbucks partners receive one pound of free coffee each week as an employee benefit (known as "partner mark-out"). Many of our partners have elected to send their weekly mark-out of coffee to members of the military or military families, and related organizations. Our partners have collected and shipped numerous pounds of Starbucks coffee overseas.

As an example of this generosity, our partners in our Atascadero, California store sent their weekly mark out coffee to troops in Afghanistan so they are able to enjoy a little piece of home. Our customer relations department in Seattle donated hundreds of pounds of coffee to the sailors in the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier group.

Under the terms of the Starbucks' corporate giving policy, had such a request been made, the coffee giant would have had to say no to it. Such a refusal would have been in keeping with the corporation's donations policy, in that Starbucks chooses to direct its charitable resources within the communities where its stores are located and limits its funding to non-profit organizations. Moreover, it does not consider requests for funding that come from political or religious organizations or which would fund political or religious initiatives or programs. According to the guidelines currently in place, a request for coffee from soldiers serving overseas would be turned down.

However, while it is true Starbucks as a corporate entity could not have donated coffee to java-seeking Marines, it would have passed along such a request to any number of its employees who are looking for military mailing addresses to send product to, as it has already done on many occasions. Starbucks partners receive one pound of free coffee each week as an employee benefit (known as "partner mark-out"). Many of them have elected to send their weekly mark-out to members of the military or military families, and related organizations.

The claim that Starbucks would ever have said "they don't support the War and anyone in it" is false, in light of what various news accounts show us about the coffee retailer's attitude towards those who serve in the armed forces. In addition to what Starbucks itself says above of its beneficences to soldiers, we know from different newspaper articles of other instances of glad-hearted support. In July 2004, a Starbucks in Cincinnati was reported to have been practically overflowing with people making yellow ribbons in support of Keith "Matt" Maupin, a soldier whose fate was then uncertain (it has subsequently been reported that he had been beheaded by his captors), along with red, white, and blue ones to show support for American troops in Iraq. In June 2004 in Cleveland, when the mother of one serviceman called her local Starbucks to arrange for the shipping of some java to her son, the employees at that store insisted on paying for 30 pounds of coffee as their gift.

Regarding another of the claims made in the e-mail, while it is true someone working at a New York City Starbucks did indeed charge ambulance workers $130 for three cases of water on September 11, 2001, it would not be quite fair to say Starbucks did this. However, act of a single, misguided employee or not, the corporation alone bears responsibility for afterwards spurning a number of opportunities to offer the rescue workers their money back or apologize to them — though it finally took both those actions, it did so only after the story attracted online and print media attention.

In addition to the "rescue workers charged for water" and the "spurned servicemen" story that is the focus of this piece, Starbucks has been the butt of a number of other unsavory rumors and mistaken beliefs just in the past few years, including:
A 2002 poster promoting two new iced drinks prompted some consumers to see in it reminders of the hijacked planes hitting the twin towers.

In 2001, a false story spread in e-mail about the wife of the owner of a Thailand Starbucks telling non-white customers the coffee shop was not for Asians.

The company's 2003 termination of its business interests in Israel caused some to believe Starbucks had abandoned that nation in favor of being able to continue to do business in Arab countries.

In 2002, a prankster who scanned and distributed online a coupon entitling the bearer to a free Crème Frappuccino caused any amount of bad feeling to be directed at the company — those duped into believing they were entitled to free product were often angry at the stores who refused to honor the fake coupons rather than with the unnamed person who had deceived them.

Starbucks, like any other successful corporation that has a strong public presence, is fated to operate with the Damocles sword of public opinion hanging above its head. No corporation can fund everyone who comes to it looking for assistance, which means some deserving groups will always be refused. In less emotionally-charged times, the logic of such a policy is better understood, but the current climate makes it a dicey PR proposition at best to say no to anything having to do with soldiers.



Claim: E-mail chronicles various ways scammers might obtain your credit card numbers.

Status: Possible, but not common.


Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2004]


Good Information

This was just passed on to me. Seems to make a lot of sense. IT COULD CERTAINLY HAPPEN TO ME EASILY ENOUGH......

SCENE 1: A friend went to the local gym and placed his belongings in the locker. After the workout and a shower, he came out, saw the locker open, and thought to himself, "Funny, I thought I locked the locker. Hmmmmm."

He dressed and just flipped the wallet to make sure all was in order. Everything looked okay — all cards were in place. A few weeks later his credit card bill came — a whooping bill of $14.000! He called the credit card company and started yelling at them, saying that he did not make the transactions. Customer care personnel verified that there was no mistake in the system and asked if his card had been stolen. "No," he said, but then took out his wallet, pulled out the credit card, and yep, you guessed it, a switch had been made. An expired similar credit card from the same bank was in the wallet. The thief broke into his locker at the gym and switched cards.

Verdict: The credit card issuer said since he did not report the card missing earlier, he would have to pay the amount owed to them. How much did he have to pay for items he did not buy? $9,000! Why were there no calls made to verify the amount swiped? Small amounts rarely trigger a "warning bell" with some credit card companies. It just so happens that all the small amounts added up to big one!

SCENE 2: A man at a local restaurant paid for his meal with his credit card. The bill for the meal came, he signed it, and the waitress folded the receipt and passed the credit card along. Usually, he would just take it and place it in his wallet or pocket. Funny enough, though, he actually took a look at the card and, lo and behold, it was the expired card of another person. He called the waitress and she looked perplexed. She took it back, apologized, and hurried back to the counter under the watchful eye of the man. All the waitress did while walking to the counter was wave the wrong expired card to the counter cashier, and the counter cashier immediately looked down and took out the real card. No exchange of words — nothing! She took it and came back to the man with an apology.

Verdict: Make sure the credit cards in your wallet are yours. Check the name on the card every time you sign for something and/or the card is taken away for even a short period of time. Many people just take back the credit card without even looking at it, thinking that it has to be theirs.

FOR YOUR OWN SAKE, DEVELOP THE HABIT OF CHECKING YOUR CREDIT CARD EACH TIME IT IS RETURNED TO YOU AFTER A TRANSACTION!

SCENE 3: Yesterday I went into a pizza restaurant to pick up an order that I had called in. I paid by using my Visa Check Card which, of course, is linked directly to my checking account. The young man behind the counter took my card, swiped it, then laid it flat on the counter as he waited for the approval, which is pretty standard procedure. While he waited, he picked up his cell phone and started dialing. I noticed the phone because it is the same model I have, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

Then I heard a click that sounded like my phone sounds when I take a picture. He then gave me back my card but kept the phone in his hand as if he was still pressing buttons. Meanwhile, I'm thinking: I wonder what he is taking a picture of, oblivious to what was really going on. It then dawned on me: the only thing there was as my credit card, so now I'm paying close attention to what he is doing.

He set his phone on the counter, leaving it open. About five seconds later, I heard the chime that tells you that the picture has been saved. Now I'm standing there struggling with the fact that this boy just took a picture of my credit card. Yes, he played it off well, because had we not had the same kind of phone, I probably would never have known what happened. Needless to say, I immediately canceled that card as I was walking out of the pizza parlor.

All I am saying is, be aware of your surroundings at all times. Whenever you are using your credit cards, take caution and don't be careless. Notice who is standing near you and what they are doing when you use your card. Be aware of phones because many have a camera phone these days. When you are in a restaurant and the waiter/waitress brings your card and receipt for you to sign, make sure you scratch the number off.

Some restaurants are using only the last four digits, but a lot of them are still putting the whole thing on there. I have already been a victim of credit card fraud and, believe me, it is not fun. The truth is that they can get you even when you are careful, so don't make it easy for them.

FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN THINK OF. LET'S GET THE WORD OUT!

Origins: The item quoted above is another example of a "crime warning" message that is difficult to classify as either true or false. The scenarios it describes are possible, and someone, somewhere, might very well have been victimized by them, but on the other hand the message provides no details of time, place, or person, to use in verifying these tales, and the scenarios proffered are generally too implausible to be of much legitimate concern to the average person.

The first two entries describe scammers who supposedly switch expired credit cards for valid credit cards, thereby enabling them to run up thousands of dollars in charges before the victims realize their cards are missing. This isn't a scheme likely to be successful in most cases, for a number of reasons:
Not all credit cards look alike. Common credit cards such as VISA and MasterCard vary quite widely in appearance, featuring different logos (based upon the issuing financial institutions), different colors of plastic, and even different (customer-selected) background designs. For this scenario to work, the putative thieves would have to carry around a plethora of different styles of cards and hope to hit a long shot by coincidentally matching one of their cards to a victim's particular card.

The deception will be obvious the next time the victim uses (or, presumably, even looks at) his card, which doesn't give the scammers much time to try to run up a huge charge on the stolen card via many small purchases. Contrary to the claim made above, most credit card issuers will flag as suspect thousands of dollars' worth of charges made on a credit card within a short period of time, even if none of those charges is for a large amount.

No explanation is offered for how these scammers supposedly come by their handy supply of expired credit cards. Most customers discard their expired cards by throwing them into the trash, usually after having cut them in two (or otherwise mutilated them).

Frankly, if you're habitually leaving your wallet unattended in an easily-opened locker, you've got a lot more to be concerned about than potential visits from card-swapping scammers.

The third scenario covers a situation we've already written an article about, that of identity thieves supposedly snapping pictures of credit cards with cell phone cameras. This scheme too is possible but implausible, since:
It's still quite difficult (given the quality of cell phone cameras, the reflectiveness of plastic credit cards, and the usual lack of contrast between the colors of a card's imprinted numbers and its background) to quickly snap off a clear photo of a credit card.

Taking a picture of the front of a credit card won't capture the CVC2 or CVV2 security code required for most CNP (i.e., "card not present") purchases. (American Express, however, is an exception to this; its security code is printed on the cardface.)

Retail clerks and others who typically handle customers' credit cards in the course of business transactions have many, many ways of recording card numbers that are better and easier (and less obtrusive) than literally pointing a camera at a card and taking a picture of it.

The admonition to "take caution and don't be careless" with your credit cards is generally sound, but then again, it's also rather obvious advice that applies to just about every aspect of life.

Cash from RH Power Inc.
$50 gift certificates from Cracker Barrel
Free champagne from Veuve-Clicquot
$50 gift certificates from Applebee's
Cash from Bill Gates

Status: False.

Origins: No, you're not going to be receiving money, merchandise, or free trips from Bill Gates (or anyone else), no matter how many people you forward this message to. Tracing all recipients of an e-mail message is not yet technically possible, and even if it were, Bill Gates certainly wouldn't be testing software that performed such tracking by blindly sending messages out to the Internet with a promise of financial reward to the recipients.

First and foremost, e-mail tracking programs do not exist. That folks continue to fall for myriad varieties of these leg-pulls is in part attributable to netizens having caught so many references to these non-existent programs that the new hoax is able to continue building on an already partially-constructed platform of belief.

(As with every other technological issue, the statement "e-mail tracking programs do not exist" becomes less and less true every day. It is possible in some cases to determine who has read a particular mail message, but there is no method of doing so that will work with all the myriad of e-mail programs out there or keep track of who forwarded the message to whom.)

Once again, e-mail tracing programs do not exist. Any "get something free" come-on or "help a sick kid" appeal which specifies an invisible program is keeping track of who received an e-mail and who it was then sent to is a hoax. Any such note. No exceptions. Not even ones not yet listed on this page.

Likewise, missives which offer no explanation of how the e-mails are being tallied are also hoaxes. Unless you are e-mailing a copy to a central tabulating point every time something is forwarded on, nothing is being counted, traced, tracked, or any other verb that would result in you getting free cargo pants from the GAP or inspiring an unnamed millionaire to donate just a little bit more towards the care of an injured child.

With all that said, we can begin looking at the various forms this jape has so far taken. And it's going to be a long, strange journey indeed.



Claim: Commentator Andy Rooney explains his political views.

Status: False.


Examples: [Collected on the Internet, 2003]

BRAVO ANDY ROONEY!!!!

Right on, Andy Rooney!

Andy Rooney said on 60 minutes a few weeks back: (for those of you that don't know Andy Rooney, he is an 82 year old US TV commentator)



I like big cars, big boats, big motorcycles, big houses and big campfires.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some governmental stooge with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts for squirting out babies.

Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.

I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts!

I think that if you feel homosexuality is wrong, it is not a phobia, it is an opinion.

I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.

Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White entertainment Television, or Miss White America and see what happens. Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.

I have the right NOT to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off. When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the law of statistics.

I know what sex is, and there are not varying degrees of it. If I received sex from one of the subordinates in my office, it wouldn't be a private matter or my personal business. I would be "FIRED" immediately!

I believe that if you are selling me a milk shake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen you should have to speak English!

My father and grandfather shouldn't have to die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours. I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.

I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation recount votes when needed. I know what the definition of lying is.

I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business. We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document and open to their interpretations.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television, and that doesn't stop you from watching them.

I believe a self-righteous liberal or conservative with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.

I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better and put your name on the building. Ask your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.

It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid and smack their little ass when necessary and say "NO."

I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement. And . . . Please stay home until that new lip ring heals, I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me french fries!

I am sick of "Political Correctness" and of all the suck ups that go along with it. I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa, so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else.

And if you don't like my point of view, tough!

Andy is 83 and entitled to his opinion.

Origins: Curmudgeonly 60 Minutes commentator Andy Rooney may have delivered a vituperative essay on French politics in 2003, but this piece elaborating on his own politics is not his creation. The text quoted above is too reactionary even for the acerbic Rooney, and the language used doesn't sound like him. ("Shoot your sorry ass" just isn't the kind of phrase Andy Rooney employs on television.) Just to be thorough, we checked the transcripts of all of Andy Rooney's 60 Minutes pieces from the last ten years, and nothing like this item turned up.

Moreover, Rooney himself denied it in 2003, saying:
About a year ago, I became aware of a more serious theft of my name and it is so hurtful to my reputation that it calls for legal action against the thief. Hundreds of people have written asking if I really wrote the 20 detestable remarks made under my name that have had such wide circulation on the Internet.

[...]

Some of the remarks, which I will not repeat here, are viciously racist and the spirit of the whole thing is nasty, mean and totally inconsistent with my philosophy of life. It is apparent that the list of comments has been read by hundreds of thousands of Americans, many of whom must believe that it accurately represents opinions of mine that I don't dare express in my column or on television. It is seriously damaging to my reputation.
The final two items on the list are probably a good tipoff that either this collection was written (by an as yet unidentified author) as a parody of the "A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney" spots on 60 Minutes, or someone appended Andy Rooney's name to an unattributed piece because it "seemed like something he would say." Either way, whoever created this version appears to have lifted some parts from an earlier piece known as "Yes, I Guess I am A BAD American" and falsely credited to comedian George Carlin.

Virus: Life is Beautiful.pps

Status: Hoax.


Example: [Collected on the Internet, 2002]

This information arrived this morning, from Microsoft and Norton. Please send it to everybody you know who accesses the Internet.

You may receive an apparently harmless email with a PowerPoint presentation called "Life is beautiful.pps."

If you receive it DO NOT OPEN THE FILE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, and delete it immediately.

If you open this file, a message will appear on your screen saying: "It is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful", subsequently you will LOSE EVERYTHING IN YOUR PC and the person who sent it to you will gain access to your name, email and password.

This is a new virus which started to circulate on Saturday afternoon. WE NEED TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO STOP THIS VIRUS.

AOL has already confirmed its dangerousness, and the antivirus Softs are not capable of destroying it. The virus has been created by a hacker who calls himself "life owner", and who aims to destroying domestic PCs and who also fights Microsoft in court! That's why it comes disguised with extension pps. He fights in court for the Windows-XP patent.

MAKE A COPY OF THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS.

Origins: This warning about a Microsoft PowerPoint file named "Life is Beautiful" carrying a a computer-destroying virus is a hoax, one that has been with us since at least January 2002. It originally circulated in Portuguese but was later translated into English and a host of other languages.

Although this particular example is a hoax, PowerPoint presentations can contain viruses, so prudent computer users should always check downloaded or e-mailed PowerPoint presentations (and all other non-text attachments) before opening them.

In September 2002 this hoax was circulated anew as "Everything is Beautiful," and it popped up again in 2003 re-titled as "Life is Wonderful."

Let me post my earlier post 1 more time:

Nearly a 1000 posts and still no sign of an independent 60km test.

The reason I’m asking for this is because we are seriously interested in this system if it really performs up to its claim. Even 40 to 50 km would already be a reason to implement this system in our UAV’s.

We are doing mapping missions and pipeline inspections here in Thailand and our missions are in the range of 20 to 40km. Now I’m not talking about that range in highly populated areas because I know that’s impossible. But I’m also not looking at flying over sea with absolutely no obstacles.

It would be nice to see anyone confirming a reasonable range in reasonable realistic circumstances.

          Thai Charcoal BBQ Stove Medium      Cache   Translate Page      
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 .

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.
