The dems won’t be so foolish to impeach without some hope of success in the senate but with the republicans so terrified of Donald it won’t happen but they will continue to investigat Donald and his family exposing more and more of his sketchy business dealings and don’t worry there are plenty of issues to discuss around the dinner table Donald has provided a rich smorgasbord of failed policy’s
  3. You don't literally think Michelle Obama is a ladyboy, right?Let's get fact based here. She:s a woman. At the time she married Barack it would not have been possible for them to be legally married if she was a man. Are you now demanding the original marriage certificate? You said you don't like "trump" much. That's kind of hard to believe. Calling Michelle Obama a ladyboy is exactly the kind of thing a core "trump" fan would say.

  8. Khon Kaen school building under scrutiny after wall collapse By KRITMET LOHO THE NATION Concrete debris is scattered over the ground floor of a private school building in Muang Khon Kaen, following a partial collapse during Monday afternoon’s storm that led to a four-year-old pupil’s death. A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl was killed when the wall of a school building collapsed during heavy rains and strong winds in Khon Kaen province on Monday. According to an initial investigation, the collapse may be linked to modification of the building’s construction plan. Khon Kaen Governor Somsak Jangtrakul yesterday morning led police and related officials to inspect the private school building in Tambon Ban Ped of Muang district, where the four-year-old girl had died. Somsak revealed that an initial survey found the building construction failed to precisely follow the approved plan. During the storm at around 4pm on Monday, three kindergartners were waiting for their parents in the company of some teachers at an open atrium in the three-storey building. A section from the top of the concrete wall suddenly fell on them from an eight-metre height, resulting in the death of the four-year-old while and two pupils and two adults, including the deceased girl’s father, suffered injuries. An inspection of the sealed scene, which still had debris on its floor, found the building’s construction had deviated from the approved plan, said Somsak. “The part where the concrete wall and ceiling fell should have been a solid wall according to the plan, but it was installed with glass windows,” he said, adding a team from the Public Works and Town and Country Planning Office would later conduct a detailed inspection of the building. In order to prevent a recurrence of the tragedy, Somsak said he would also have the provincial education office suspended classes at the school, and the damaged building would be closed for any use. He would also ask the provincial education office to have all schools check the structural stability of their buildings as a safety precaution. Thanyawalai Panna, who had obtained the licence for the school, apologised on behalf of the school for the tragedy and said she was saddened by what had happened. She said the school would take responsibility for the families of the deceased and the wounded. However, she insisted that the school building’s construction was according to the original plan. “It was the first rainfall that Khon Kaen people had long waited for, but I lost my little girl forever that day,” said Paisal Surasa, 37, the father of Suchada. He himself damaged a left arm bone from the incident. At his daughter’s funeral at Wat Klang yesterday, Paisal recalled that he had gone to pick up Suchada at the school, where she had just start studying two weeks ago. However, heavy rains and gusty winds prompted them to seek shelter in the building when the wall suddenly collapsed on them. “It happened so fast. We were walking to the other side of hall when it all went black for a few moments as I felt something crashing down on me and I fell. I opened my eyes and saw my daughter crushed under debris,” the grief-stricken father said. Paisal’s wife was still in shock. The girl was her parents’ only child. Khon Kaen Governor Somsak attended the girl’s funeral and offered a wreath while the Office of the Private Education Commission representative offered some initial financial aid to the family. The girl’s cremation ceremony will be held on Friday. Ban Ped superintendent Pol Colonel Prawit Toha said police had initially interviewed the school executives but had not yet filed any charges against anyone pending a detailed building inspection. There were also various points to cover, he said, including whether the building design met engineering standards, and whether the building’s construction was legal. Police would obtain the plan from Tambon Ban Ped Municipality to compare with the school building owner’s plan to see if there were any discrepancies, he said. Construction of the building began in 2013 and was completed the following year and opened for operations. There were 40 teachers and staff and nearly 400 students from pre-school level to Prathom 4.

  13. Cannabinoid extract ‘works for cancer’ By PRATCH RUJIVANAROM THE NATION A Thai medical researcher at the Rangsit University displays marijuana extract in a laboratory of the Medicinal Cannabis Research Centre, inside the Rangsit University (RSU) in Bangkok yesterday. // EPA-EFE PHOTO Rangsit University researchers ready to test potential lung-cancer treatment with clinical trials on Humans. A RANGSIT University research team has revealed that its studies had shown a cannabinoid extract could help treat lung cancer. Asst Professor Surang Leelawat, director of the newly founded Medical Cannabis Research Institute of the College of Pharmacy at Rangsit University, revealed the breakthrough at a press conference at the opening ceremony of the institute yesterday. Surang said her team of researchers had found that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBN), which are extracted from cannabis, can stop the growth of lung cancer cells in mice and thus offer the promise of becoming new anti-lung-cancer agents in humans. Surang said this was another step forward in finding an effective treatment that could save many lives, as lung cancer is one of the deadliest cancers and there was no effective way yet to treat this fatal disease. “Our clinical trials in the laboratory and on animals of the lung-cancer treatment proficiency of three major cannabinoid compounds – THC, CBD [Cannibidiol], and CBN – showed that THC and CBN can effectively deter cancer growth, confirming the potential of using cannabis to treat lung cancer in humans,” she said. “Even though it is too early to claim that cannabis can cure cancer, this promising research result will be developed further through a phase of clinical trials in humans. We hope that we will find an effective treatment for lung cancer in the near future.” A Thai medical researcher at the Rangsit University displays marijuana extract for use in marijuana-based medicines at a laboratory of the Medicinal Cannabis Research Centre, inside the Rangsit University (RSU) in Bangkok, Thailand, 23 April 2019. // EPA-EFE PHOTO Rangsit University rector Arthit Ourairat praised the major breakthrough as another proof of the usefulness of cannabis for medical treatment, underlining the university’s pursuit of further medical cannabis research and development efforts by setting up a new institute. Arthit said the university had already contacted some major hospitals to work together for human trials in the development of cannabinoid medicine for treating lung cancer. “As Rangsit University has opened the Medical Cannabis Research Institute to be a focal institution to develop medicines and new medical treatment techniques from cannabis, we are not only focusing on developing conventional cannabinoid medicines, but also improving the use of medical cannabis in Thai traditional medicine and developing other medical products from cannabis as well,” he said. He revealed that Rangsit University had already obtained official permission to grow cannabis and to conduct research on medical cannabis. The university has invested more than Bt40 million on procuring high-tech medical research equipment for the laboratory at the new research institute, and has built its own small closed-system cannabis farm to provide raw material for the medical cannabis research. “We are the pioneering academic institute on medical cannabis research and development in Thailand. We started the first research effort on the medical properties of cannabis three years ago, so we have great potential to lead the mission to manufacture Thailand’s own efficient and safe cannabinoid medical products,” he said. “With the opening of the new medical cannabis research institute, we can enhance our research efforts by pooling the expertise of all related colleges and faculties in our university and can greatly improve our progress to find better healthcare for all Thai citizens from medical cannabis.” Famira Madaka, a Medical Cannabis Research Institute researcher, revealed that right now the institute has already created a technique to extract pure cannabinoid compounds – THC, CBD, and CBN – from cannabis, which will be used to develop new medicines. The institute also has already successfully developed four medical cannabis products – cannabis wafer tablets, traditional Thai Phrasa-Kancha recipe, cannabis oil and CBN oramucosal spray – which will be ready for commercial sale soon. Meanwhile, Government Pharmaceutical Organisation (GPO) chairman Dr Sopon Mekthon disclosed that the cannabis plants in the GPO’s medical cannabis research and development farm will be ready for harvest soon, allowing the agency to start the process to extract cannabis oil within this July.

  18. Royal plaques, Seal of State ready for King’s coronation By The Nation Officials work on the inscription of two royal golden plaques and the engraving of the Royal Seal of State at the Emerald Buddha Temple yesterday. A HISTORIC royal ceremony took place at the Emerald Buddha Temple yesterday for the inscription of two royal golden plaques and the engraving of the Royal Seal of State. One of the plaques carries the name of HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn, while the other carries his birth horoscope. These plaques together with the Royal Seal of State will be used at the King’s coronation next month. The current monarch, known as King Rama X, is the only son of HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and HM Queen Sirikit. King Rama X ascended the throne after the passing of his father in October 2016. Preparations are currently under way for the grand coronation of the King. The monarch assigned Admiral Mom Chao Pusarn Sawasdiwat to represent him at the royal ceremony for the |inscription of two royal golden plaques and the engraving of the Royal Seal of State yesterday. Pusarn arrived at the Emerald Buddha Temple at 9.30am. Upon arrival, he paid his respects to the Emerald Buddha. Royal astrologer Chatchai Pin-ngern, who was chosen for the inscription of the King’s birth horoscope, royal craftsman Suntorn Wilai, who was chosen to engrave the Seal of State, and a chosen letter official, also paid their respects to the sacred statue. They then sat at tables prepared for their job. During the work of inscription and engraving, monks chanted prayers, royal astrologers sounded gongs, Brahmin priests blew conch shells and musicians played various instruments on the auspicious occasion. After the inscription and engraving were completed, the chief of Brahmin priests anointed the royal golden plaques and the Seal of State. The last time Thailand had organised such a ceremony was on April 21, 1950. Back then, the ceremony was held for the current monarch’s father, who reigned for seven decades until his passing in 2016. Next Friday, the two royal golden plaques and the Royal Seal of State that were prepared at yesterday’s ritual will be moved from the Emerald Buddha Temple to the Baisal Daksin Throne Hall. On May 4, the three-day Royal Coronation ceremony will start. The ritual on May 4 is considered the most important when the royal golden plaques and the Royal Seal of State will be presented to the King along with the Royal Regalia, the ancient and auspicious orders and the weapons of sovereignty. After the crowning and investiture ceremony, the King will present the First Royal Command. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30368238 -- © Copyright The Nation 2019-04-24
  19. Maybe this will be a visa run town. Like Ranong and Kawthuang they can make it so the visa runner is not permitted to go beyond the town without a proper Myanmar visa. Could make life easier for the Hua Hin dwellers (app. 100km).

  23. Cleanse?Of people? That's extremely dark. There was never any need to have 65k monthly to get an embassy letter. That's what the combo method was for. Yes I said was because these changes have made trying that extremely problematical. Are you saying your friend had been lying to the embassy? If so do you think that means most people were lying? If so there is no evidence of that. Your friend could have used the combo method before but are you saying he couldn't have covered the bank portion. If so do you think that most or all people with income under 65k can't cover the bank portion? If you do think that you have no evidence of that. As said the combo method is now very much messed up especially without an embassy letter. Even the full import without embassy letter has been a radical change. Now requires full monthly import. Before no import. Again people saying there have been no changes, that only "poor" people are impacted are spreading obviously false information. On the question of the percentage of people that were lying on their embassy letters, that is unknowable. Sent from my Lenovo A7020a48 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
