    Bangkok Air Pollution

    FIRMS Fire map shows a lot of big fires north of Bangkok. As no government dares to upset farmers just before an election, it's time to blame Bangkok's traffic problems again.
  2. I've seen a lot of terrible NES teachers over the years, who have no feeling with second language learning at all.

    TAT confirms Chiang Mai tourism continues to grow

    4% growth is a fantastic result, and I expect a nice year-end bonus for the TAT people. Job well done.
  4. Somehow I find it hard to believe that 70 to 80% of all rooms are pre booked for the coming 4 months.
  5. Doing a lot of Thai English translation work, I see a lot of poorly written articles. A lot of Thais seem to struggle with their own language as well.

    Bangkok: Monorail Gold Line proves a BIG DRAW

    Looks very much like the Tokyo Skytree imho. Maybe the same architect?
  7. You would need a functional police force for that.
  8. Efforts to Lower the population are not the answer, narrowing the global income gap is. In wealthier countries, especially those with a healthy GINI ciefficient, populations are in decline. Even Thailand's population has reached its tipping point and is in decline. If you dont need 10 kids to support you when you're old, people tend to use birth control measures automatically.
  9. The entrance exam of a large primary school I worked for, was solely based on math skills. The bigger the number the parents could write on a small piece of paper, the higher the chances of enrollment. Sad but true.
  10. Somehow I have the feeling that certain lobby groups are behind these 'complaints'.
  11. Would be nice to know which provinces are awarded, so that I can move to one.
  12. The amount of plastic and garbage being burned daily at the Lipa side of the island was enough to give us a headache and sore throat. Doesnt look like it that the autorities are taking the waste problem serious enough.
