  2. Govt agency to promote organic farming By THE NATION The Cooperative Promotion Department has launched a campaign to promote organic farming among cooperatives in certain provinces, Atcha Suwanni, the department’s deputy director general, said on Tuesday (August 11). “As many as 13 co-ops have expressed interest in joining the project, for which the department will support the building of 98 greenhouses for organic farming,” she said. “Each greenhouse will be six by 30 metres in size and will cost Bt50,000 to build. The department will provide a subsidy of Bt35,000, while the rest will have to be paid by the farmers. “The department will also provide farmers with training on organic farming and marketing, and will coordinate with local administration agencies to expand marketing channels to cover local communities,” she added. “In the pilot project we learned that growing and selling organic vegetables can boost people’s income by around Bt150,000 a year, as the demand for pesticide-free organic vegetables is high thanks to the new trend of healthy eating. “In the future, we aim to build a network of cooperatives that grow organic vegetables commercially so the product can penetrate modern trade channels,” she said.

  8. Police puzzled over man shot at close range in Chumphon By THE NATION The body of a Chumphon Provincial Electricity Authority staff member was found with a gunshot wound in the chest at about 8pm on Monday (August 10). The reason for the killing is still unclear. The body of Somchai Neonthong, 50, was found near a Toyota pick-up truck parked near a temple in Thung Tako district. Somchai, who also worked as an electrician, had been shot at close range judging by the wound, police said. A passerby had alerted police about the pickup that had been left with its engine running and the man outside, thinking there had been an accident. Police believe somebody stopped the vehicle and shot Somchai as he tried to get out of the car. Police also believe the killer may have been a familiar person and assume the reason may be related to a conflict over a woman or business.

  12. Stonewall aimed at blocking waves, resort owner explains following criticism By The Nation The owner of a resort on Koh Lipe Island in Satun province has defended his decision to build a stone wall around the resort after it came in for criticism from netizens. Many questioned whether it was appropriate to put up a stonewall on a tourist attraction or whether the resort had the right to do so after someone shared the pictures of the wall on the Internet. Manit Kaweerat, Bundhaya Resort’s owner, said that he owned the land and had a legal document to build the stonewall. He said he had also notified the situation to Lipe Police Station. He said the wall was built to prevent waves from entering the resort. It might look unattractive now but it will be decorated in the future, he said. Stones are not very effective in blocking waves but they were able to be transported during the low season before the tourist high season begins in November.

  14. Covid-19 vaccine 'will be out in 6 months' By The Nation Most countries should be able to produce a Covid-19 vaccine in the next six months, the Public Health Ministry declared on Monday (August 10). Dr Thanarak Plipat, deputy director general from the ministry's Department of Disease Control, said more than 180 vaccines were under clinical trial in different countries, and 38 of them were already being tried on humans. He explained that in the first phase, a vaccine is tested on no more than 100 volunteers, in the second phase it is tested on volunteers of both sexes, different ages and races to see if the vaccine is widely effective, and in the third phase the vaccine and a placebo is used on a large group of people to see if the vaccine really works. "Of the 38 vaccines being tried on humans, 18 are in the first phase of testing, 12 vaccines are in the second phase, seven in the third phase, and one is being used on the Chinese army even though it has not yet undergone the third phase of testing," he said. "Hence, we expect a Covid-19 vaccine to be ready in the next six months." He added that the ministry has been supporting research and plans to procure as many vaccines as possible. "While we are waiting for a vaccine, we have to prepare our personnel, organisations, and communities to deal with a second wave of infections that may emerge anytime," he added. "But most importantly, people must not panic if there is a second Covid-19 wave."
