  2. Are You Really Ready to Exercise!!

    Are You Really Ready to Exercise!! These days, many of us are into taking better care ourselves. Exercise is one of the most popular ways people use to get into and stay in shape. Typically, when people think about starting an exercise program, they are urged to see their Dr for a check up to see if they are ok to start. The typical check up involves blood pressure and perhaps a stress test. If you pass these, you are usually given the ok to proceed. Unfortunately, this is not adequate to check if someone is truly ready to work out. Thousands of people every year are injured from exercise, and most of these injuries are preventable. For example, running injuries are the most common, affecting the knees, ankles, hips, and pelvis. A major factor in these injuries is due to leg and pelvic imbalance. Running on imbalanced legs or pelvis will cause abnormal torsion of the joints resulting in accelerated degeneration and inflammation. This is preventable if checked first by a qualified professional. Lifting weights is also a risk if you spine is not ready for the stress. Even yoga will be more effective and enjoyable if you spine and attached muscles are checked for proper balance and tone before starting. Doctors of Chiropractic are extremely qualified to check your body to make sure you are REALLY ready to exercise, without the risk of injury. That’s why most major Olympic and professional sports teams have chiropractors on staff to help the athletes reach their best performance.... naturally, without drugs. Even Usain Bolt was under chiropractic care! Now you can gain the same benefit as those high achieving athletes by getting yourself, or a friend, checked properly by a Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. Call today!

  3. Online 90 day reporting available from April 1st BANGKOK: A spokesperson for Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has confirmed the new online service for 90 day reporting will be effective from April 1st 2015. Col. Worawat Amornwiwat confirmed on Thursday that foreign nationals in Thailand will now be able to report their address via the Immigration Bureau’s website, rather than having to attend their local immigration office in person or send the notification by registered mail. Col. Worawat said the new service has been introduced as part of Thailand’s integration into the ASEAN Economic Community and will provide more convenience for foreigners staying in Thailand. Foreign nationals staying in Thailand can make their 90 day report online by completing the form at https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do or by visiting the main ]Immigration Bureau website Whilst the new service of online 90 day reporting is likely to be largely welcomed by many expats and foreign nationals residing in Thailand, the downside is that the service is only currently available via Microsoft’s Internet Explorer - a web browser which Microsoft has recently said it will replace as part of the launch of Windows 10 later this year. Immigration officials have said that the online 90 day reporting service will hopefully be available on other web browsers at some point in the future but have not given any further indication of when this will be. After being originally announced in February there have been various discussions[/size on the Thaivisa Forum related to online 90 day reporting, with some expats raising concerns about the security and efficiency of the system being able to service what is an important requirement for foreign nationals who live in Thailand. ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Update Immigration has changed the address for the online reporting. The new one is https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online
  4. Unregistered drones BANNED in Thailand

    Unregistered drones banned Owners have been given 90 days from Friday to register their drones, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) announced on Wednesday. NBTC Secretary General Takorn Tantasith said the decision was taken to deal with the rampant use of drones in Thailand, while only 350 are registered with the Civil Aviation of Thailand (CAT). Takorn said owners of illegal drones should register them at the NBTC headquarters in Bangkok, its branches in many provinces, police stations and CAT offices. Failure to register them within 90 days from Friday could result in a jail term of not more than five years and/or a fine of not more than Bt100,000 or both. Takorn emphasised the complete ban on drones in the vicinity of the Royal Funeral of His Majesty the late King which is being held at Sanam Luang from October 25 to 29. The radius of the ban is 19 kilometres from Sanam Luang that goes as far as the border of Samut Prakarn, Nakhon Pathom and Nonthaburi provinces.

  6. What You Really Want to Know About Cryptocurrency Trading for Beginners Have you ever imaged yourself Trading Cryptocurrencies? Now there are well over 1000 cryptocurrencies or also known as Alt-coins with Bitcoins dominating this market with almost 50% dominance. Many people have been asking me how I’m able to earn consistently and profitably Day-trading Crypto-currencies. They can’t imagine what to look for out of all those Coins on the market and when to buy. And they want to know which coins are in demand and when to buy. For those who haven’t yet started trading cryptocurrencies or just starting then at it’s most fundamental level is to correctly position yourself in a coin that is due to increase in value whether in a gradual way or sky rocket. It isn’t just a case of calling it buying and selling as there are cycles of a coin that need to be addressed first. To become successful and skilled in crypto-currency trading needs an investment in yourself first even before you think about getting some Bitcoins. According to a recent study approx only 6% of those studied are aware of Bitcoins, it’s current price, potential and implications. Are you one of those? If so, you may know that the price has increased dramatically from just 0.10 USD 7 years ago to almost 5,000 USD today. In order for you to profit from Bitcoins and Alt-coins you’ll need to enter the crypto market with the correct mentality and approach. You may have heard before that you usually need to lose hundreds of dollars during the learning curve as a beginner. But I just don’t accept that, it is truly unnecessary and unnaceptable. For beginners, I don’t accept any losses. As friends and family have began their journey into Cryptocurrencies I support and ensure they minimize and manage their risk to minimize losses in the long term. The best analogy that’s helped me to progress fairly quickly at Trading is that this game is like owning a Store. You have many products to choose from as in Alt-coins, you buy at wholesale and sell at retail or at a premium. Many traders make the mistake of buying at retail and then trying to sell at a premium price which often gets them burned with losses. We are no different than store owners who buy at the cheapest wholesale prices who then sell at retail or at a premium during a time of high demand only. The majority of Traders lose out because of a lack of fundamental understanding and preparation before doing anything. Enter with the correct mindset, the right game plan, patience and decision making, then that’s the beginning of successful, consistent and profitable trading.

  7. Serial Dutch pedophile arrested in Hua Hin Image: TNN Thailand Officers from Thailand’s Department of Special Investigations have arrested a Dutchman wanted for sexually abusing children under the age 15. The man, identified as Mr.Reinold KLUNDER, was arrested on Monday at a property in the Smorprong area near Bor Fai in Hua Hin. Inside the property officers found a ten year old boy. Stained bed linen, 6 computers, 2 mobile phones, 2 tablets, memory cards and CDs were taken as evidence. Sex toys were also found at the property. TNN Thailand reported the man admitted to luring boys under the age of 15 by telling them they could swim in his pool. He gave the boys food and admitted to later having sex with them and recording videos which we would distribute to his pedophile friends. Klunder who had reportedly worked in real estate in Hua Hin also told people he was a musician. DSI officers made the arrest following information from the authorities in the Netherlands, where he had fled similar charges related to the sexual abuse of children. Thaivisa understands that as officers were leaving having arrested Klunder another boy arrived at the property. Photos obtained by Thaivisa believed to be from 2013 showed Klunder alongside two boys next to a swimming pool. TNN also reported on the statistics of foreigners being arrested in Thailand for sexually abusing children under the age of 15. Between 2010 and 2017, there were 113 cases in Chonburi, 25 in Chiang Mai and 12 in Bangkok. Out of all suspects arrested, 45 percent were from the UK, 24 percent from the USA, 12 percent from Germany, 18 percent from France and 8 percent Switzerland.

  8. Thaivisa and Adblockers

    Thaivisa and Adblockers Running any business costs money and needs a revenue stream in order to operate, without this money the business will close. Thaivisa is no exception to this rule and costs money to operate. Our primary revenue stream is from banner revenue, without this we cannot afford to provide you with the service you want. It is no different from a cafe expecting you to pay for a cup of tea, in fact you would not even think about using a service or shop anywhere else without paying, in our case the banner advertisers pay for you - so it's an even better outcome for you! Anyone that uses an adblocker deprives a business of revenue that they need in order to operate. As such with immediate effect we will be implementing a count down for users with adblocker, meaning they will have to wait 10 seconds before reading the content they want to read. If you do use an adblocker, we would recommend you turn off your adblocker in order for normal service to be resumed. You may also select Thaivisa as an exception to your adblocker. Help us run a business you can count on, everyday 24 hours a day by allowing us to operate commercially, turn off your adblocker. Thank you for your understanding on this matter. Thaivisa management

  12. VIDEO: Thai man brutally assaults Aussie expat in Pattaya following road rage incident A video captured the moment a Thai man brutally assaulted a western man in Pattaya on Wednesday. Police were called following reports of a road rage incident. As reporters filmed a discussion between the parties involved, the Thai man is seen launching a vicious blow to the western man who is knocked to ground and appears to be unconscious. In the clip, the Thai man lands the brutal punch at around 1 minute 40 seconds. The incident happened outside a school and right in front of the police man. A terrified school girl can be seen screaming for the Thai man to stop. Video footage shows what looks like a machete in one of the vehicles although it is not clear who the weapon belongs to.

  13. Still no news from Interpol members on Yingluck’s location The more than 190 members of Interpol seemingly still have no information to offer in regard to the whereabouts of former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra, who fled Thailand more than two months ago. Pol Colonel Krisana Patanacharoen, deputy spokesman of the Royal Thai Police, said on Tuesday that none of the 192 member countries had informed the Bangkok Interpol office of any clues as to the location of the fugitive politician. However, Thai police are gathering more evidence to send to Interpol in order to get a blue notice issued on her, he said, adding that they are continually coordinating with the international crime agency. The blue notice is used for requesting help to collect information regarding a criminal’s whereabouts or related crime activities. “If she is located in any country, the Interpol member would notify Thai authorities immediately,” he stressed. It has been more than a month since the Bangkok Interpol office sent the request for a blue notice to the France-based agency. Thai police requested Interpol’s assistance in late September after Yingluck was sentenced in absentia to five years in jail following her trial for negligence of duty in regard to her administration’s rice-pledging scheme. The latest news of her whereabouts was disclosed by Thai authorities early last month, when they said that Yingluck had left Dubai for London. Late last month, all four Thai passports held by Yingluck were revoked by the Foreign Ministry, as a result of which the former premier will no longer be able to travel from one country to another using those documents. Rumours have been circulating that Yingluck plans to seek political asylum in the United Kingdom. Last week, the UK authorities informed Thailand that if she came to stay in the country, she would need to follow the normal immigration process, but there would not be an issue of political asylum. Yingluck fled Thailand on August 23 and has been wanted since August 25, when she failed to show up to hear the final ruling in the negligence case against her. She was sentenced in her absence a month later to five years in jail. Yingluck has neither been heard from nor seen since she fled the Kingdom.

  14. BMW Group Thailand unveils all-new BMW 630d Gran Turismo M Sport BMW Group Thailand has passed yet another milestone of success and innovation in the premium automobile segment with the launch of the all-new BMW 630d Gran Turismo M Sport, the extensively updated successor to one of the most creative vehicle concepts of recent years. President Stefan Teuchert said on Monday: “In light of the upcoming ‘Motor Expo 2017’, we are delighted to introduce yet another new addition to our line-up – one that takes pride in both state-of-the-art automotive innovation and a sophisticated outlook. The all-new BMW 630d Gran Turismo M Sport is a perfect concoction of luxurious comfort and functionality, wrapped up in elegant design. “The sporty and dynamic characteristics offer our Thai customers sheer driving pleasure in long-distance journeys, while retaining the best of comfort and alluring coupe style.” The impressive functionality offered by this body format and the high standards of driving comfort and spaciousness that provide the ideal setting for a relaxing journey are among the features that defined the character of the model’s predecessor – the founder of this vehicle genre. These strengths have now been further honed in the new BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, whose systematic evolution from the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo is particularly evident in the new model’s sporting elegance, highly advanced equipment features, innovative control and assistance systems – and a leap forward in dynamism and efficiency.

  18. Video: Monks behaving badly - abbot's assistant kicks fellow monk in head as he counts Loy Krathong "takings" Image: Thairath A video posted on Facebook was yet another example of the monkhood behaving like hooligans. An assistant to an abbot at a Nonthaburi temple is upset with an underling as he counts money taken during Friday's Loy Krathong festival. But the altercation - caught at a distance on CCTV - soon turns very nasty as the bigger monk kicks out at the other catching him around the neck, Thai Rath reported. The monk goes sprawling to the floor and appears momentarily unconscious. But after a few moments he recovers to continue the counting as the assistant abbot continues ranting. A post in the comments section on a Facebook page said the incident happened in Ban Mai sub-district of Pak Kret in the area to the north of Bangkok. The post claimed that the aggressive monk was into gambling on the underground lottery and cock fighting. It claimed he had assaulted monks before and the clergy at the temple was suffering because of him. At one point a very rude Thai swear word almost never used for monks was only half scribbled out indicating extreme dissatisfaction with the monk's behavior.
