  4. What price a child's safety? School says they have no budget after drain accident Parents at a Chonburi school are outraged after repeated efforts to get a drain repaired ended in a serious accident yesterday. Ten year old Prawanwit Phuangthong was running around after school when his left leg got trapped in a large hole in a drain next to one of the buildings at the Ban Chak Nork school. An elder pupil helped him before the medics arrived and managed to cut him free. The parents said this was not the first accident and they had told the school to do something about it. But they allegedly told the parents they didn't have a budget to pay for that. Source: http://www.tnamcot.com/view/5a8d48c3e3f8e420a54378e7 -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-02-21
  5. Bigwigs gather and declare Mae Sot has the worst pollution in Thailand Disaster Mitigation officials, the military, medics and other authorities gathered in the border area of Mae Sot to declare that the area was the worst polluted place in Thailand. They came to the Mae Sot airport to witness one of the answers to the problem - shooting lots of water droplets up into the air to bring the dust crashing down to earth. Firemen were also on the scene to blast lots of water into the smoke and dust particles. Following this the army from Region 9 took everyone up for an exciting helicopter ride to see the extent of slash and burn farming. It was deemed a great success, said Sanook. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-02-21

    This unappetizing fried chicken is proof of why we should stop the charcoal food trend We’ve seen charcoal sandwiches, spaghetti, ice cream, and waffles, but this charcoal fried chicken from a Japanese chain restaurant in Bangkok may be proof that the hipster food trend has gone too far.

  11. Will 7-Eleven Pick Up Where Thailand’s Banks Leave Off? BANGKOK — In the past year alone, 7-Eleven has wooed consumers with cashless payments and wowed them with draft beer machines – though the latter was killed before the foam settled. Coming soon to the ubiquitous convenience store chain that millions rely on for midnight snacks, utility payments and caffeine doses? Cash deposits and withdrawals, say regulators. It’s a move an economist described as the natural next step in the evolution of financial services as banks scale down branches and personnel. Word that 7-Eleven could start offering banking services surfaced a week ago when senior Bank of Thailand official Daranee Saeju said an upcoming regulatory change would clear the way for the convenience stores to launch deposit and withdrawal services.

  14. Visa credit cards now accepted at all 7-11 outlets All 7-Eleven convenience stores nationwide now accept Visa credit-card payments. The announcement comes as the Bank of Thailand plans to allow commercial banks to set up banking agents in order to provide financial-service points that are closer to people’s homes than branch operations. Many observers speculate that 7-Eleven has the potential to be a banking agent providing financial transactions such as deposit and withdrawal services, as well as small-amount payment services for retail – or individual – customers. Suripong Tantiyanon, country manager of Visa Thailand, in a statement on Tuesday described the partnership between Visa, Thai Smart Card and 7-Eleven as “an important chapter in the digital transformation of commerce in Thailand”. The Visa payment programme was first piloted in the Kingdom last year in selected 7-Eleven stores with high tourist traffic, and has since gradually branched out across the country, according to Visa Thailand’s office.
