  4. Back in Champions League, Man Utd expect to match record revenue Reuters Staff Britain Football Soccer - Manchester United v RSC Anderlecht - UEFA Europa League Quarter Final Second Leg - Old Trafford, Manchester, England - 20/4/17 General view before the match Action Images via Reuters / Jason Cairnduff Livepic (Reuters) - English soccer club Manchester United said it was likely to maintain revenue around last year’s record level in 2017-18 as it returns to the lucrative European Champions League. United, whose top players include Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, are currently joint top of the English Premier League and have qualified for the Champions League after winning the second-tier Europa League last season. “We are pleased with the investment in our squad and look forward to an exciting season” Executive Vice Chairman Ed Woodward said in a statement. Controlled by the American Glazer family and with its shares traded in New York, United forecast revenue of between 575 million pounds and 585 million pounds in 2017-18. That would be broadly in line with record revenue of 581 million pounds in the year to June 30. United reported core profit of 199.8 million pounds in the year. That figure was likely to slip to between 175-185 million pounds in the current year. The lower forecast was in part down to bonus payments to players linked to making it back into the Champions League. United spent close to $200 million (£148.24 million) on player signings over the summer as manager Jose Mourinho builds a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League title, last won by United in 2013. As well as the Europa League, United also won the English League Cup last season. -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-9-21

    Ex-Miss Teen Thailand’s boyfriend to fight drug trafficking charges By The Nation The boyfriend of actress and former Miss Teen Thailand Amelia “Amy”Jacobs will defend himself by admitting drug abuse but disputing the allegation of trafficking, his lawyer said on Thursday.

  6. Ex-Miss Teen Thailand’s boyfriend to fight drug trafficking charges By The Nation The boyfriend of actress and former Miss Teen Thailand Amelia “Amy”Jacobs will defend himself by admitting drug abuse but disputing the allegation of trafficking, his lawyer said on Thursday. Chaiwat Dejprathoom, Poonyawat Hirantecha’s lawyer, said his client would admit in court that he was a drug user. Poonyawat and his girlfriend Amelia were arrested at a house in Sai Mai district at about 12.30am. Police seized 70 grams of crystal methamphetamine, or “ice”, 16 ecstasy pills and a scale. Police said the couple had confessed that they had bought the 100 grams of drugs from a friend for Bt40,000 and then resold them for Bt800 per gram. But the lawyer said on Thursday that police could present written testimony about his client’s alleged confession, but the defence would still retract the statement given during the interrogation. Chaiwat was speaking to reporters after he visited his client at the Sai Mai police station at 10am on Thursday morning. He spent 30 minutes speaking to his client. Chaiwat said he would not seek Poonywat’s release on bail because the amount of seized drugs was quite large and the court might not approve bail. Chaiwait said Poonyawat would prove to the court that he did not own the scale and his cooperation had helped police to arrest other drug dealers, including Natcha Champaseng, 34. “This information will be used as information for the defence,” Chaiwat said. Chaiwat said he had yet to consult with Amelia’s lawyer. Amelia’s parents visited her at the police station at 9am on Thursday and gave her foods and sweets. They spent just five minutes talking to their daughter and left the police station without speaking to reporters. In the afternoon, Amelia was brought to the Min Buri Court as police sought permission to detain her and her boyfriend. She wept constantly and continued to deny that she was a drug trafficker. “I am just a substance abuser, not a dealer,” she said. Police, meanwhile, said they had solid evidence and would object to any bail request. Source: http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/breakingnews/30327340 -- © Copyright The Nation 2017-9-21

    Would you fall for this badly faked Thai banknote? One taxi driver did By Coconuts Bangkok Photos: The Phuket News A Phuket taxi driver manager posted a warning for people to beware of fake banknotes after a tourist got away with paying with a THB50 (USD1.50) banknote washed with a purple tint and with extra zeros literally glued on it to present it as a THB500 (USD15) note.

  8. Would you fall for this badly faked Thai banknote? One taxi driver did By Coconuts Bangkok Photos: The Phuket News A Phuket taxi driver manager posted a warning for people to beware of fake banknotes after a tourist got away with paying with a THB50 (USD1.50) banknote washed with a purple tint and with extra zeros literally glued on it to present it as a THB500 (USD15) note. However, even in black-and-white, the design of the bill should be obvious to anyone who regularly uses Thai cash. A taxi company manager, who did not want to be named, posted photos of the note on Facebook Tuesday, saying “Staff at my office showed me this. The money was from a taxi driver who was handed this from a tourist on Monday night. We are not sure if it was the tourist created this banknote or if someone else handed it to (him/her) without realizing it.” Full Story: https://coconuts.co/bangkok/news/fall-badly-faked-thai-banknote-one-taxi-driver-photos/ -- © Copyright Coconuts Bangkok 2017-9-21

  10. Thai exports continue reaching upward By The Nation Thailand’s August exports reached US$21.22 billion (Bt793 billion), a record for the past six years and up 13.2 per cent compared to the same month of last year. Meanwhile, the country’s exports for the first eight months of this year increased by 8.9 per cent compared to the same period last year, totalling about $153.6 billion. Thailand’s imports for the first eight months of this year reached $144.7 billion, up 15.4 per cent compared to the same period last year. The country could boast a trade surplus of nearly $8.9 billion for the latest eight-month period. Commerce Minister Apiradi Tantraporn attributed the 12.2 per cent surge of August exports to an increase of exports to all major markets, especially China, CLMV (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam), Japan and the US. Exports of agricultural and agri-industrial products to those markets have increased continuously for the last 10 consecutive months, while the exports of industrial goods have also increased for the last six consecutive months.

Notorious debt-dodging dentist Dolrudee Jumlongras will have her Thai dental license revoked over the non-payment of THB36 million (USD1.08 million) in debts that she skipped out on after going to the U.S. to study at Harvard University over 20 years ago. The Thai Dental Council announced today that they will yank her dental licence due to her breaking the contracts of three Thai education loans she received and never repaid, despite her promises last year to sell of her assets in the U.S. and repay the debt. They said that she is guilty of misconduct and fraud. They noted that she has tarnished the reputation of the dental profession and that she had broken the dental code of ethics and that annulling her license was a fitting punishment.
