  5. Thai Immigration 90-day reporting service goes offline – again The Phuket News The Thai immigration 90-day reporting web service is out of action – again. Photo: Screengrab via immigration.go.th PHUKET:-- An official from the Phuket Immigration Office has confirmed that expats wanting to carry out their 90-day reporting online are currently unable to do so due to server issues in Bangkok. The problem means that all expats needing to do their 90-day reporting must do so at one of the island’s immigration offices. The Phuket News attempted to access the 90-day reporting webpage this morning (May 26) to find a message stating that the website is currently undergoing maintenance. A Phuket Immigration official, who declined to be named, said “The website is another option for those people who need to do 90-day reporting. Unfortunately, as the website is currently not working they will need to report to the immigration office in Phuket Town or in Patong. “It is not been active for a week. I don’t know how long it will take to fix the problem,” the official said.

Photo: Patong PEA PHUKET:-- The Phuket Governor has called for officials to post notices and to announce online explanations of projects currently underway after a deluge of complaints about a mess of tangled cables near the Patong beach road. To assert his message, Governor Norraphat Plodthong called together yesterday (May 25) the heads of the key government offices and private companies involved in the Patong project, where cables were drawn down at the beach end of Sawasdirak Rd, near Loma Park. Present at the meeting were Phuket Vice governor Siwaporn Chuasawad along with officers from the Patong branch of the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) as well as key Phuket representatives for telecommuncations companies including, TOT, PA, Cable 3BB, Symphony, DTAC, AIS and True. During the meeting it was explained to Governor Norraphat that the mess was due to workers tidying up the cables along that section of Sawasdirak Rd, in accordance with the central government’s order for local authorities to carry out “cable clean-up campaigns”. Regardless, Gov Norraphat said, “Officials must have signs to tell tourists and (other) people what they are doing.” Full Story: http://www.thephuketnews.com/patong-cable-palaver-spurs-phuket-governor-call-for-public-works-notices-62318.php#jcWq8k9gVKXxsuiA.97 -- © Copyright Phuket News 2017-5-26

  13. Thai man vows to pay 3 million baht for giant gecko By Coconuts Bangkok Photo: Sanook A man has stirred up excitement on social media with the announcement that he would pay at least THB3 million to anyone who can provide him with a very large gecko. Geckos, known as tukkae in Thai, come in various sizes and are commonly found roaming free in Thai houses, especially in the countryside. But, to earn the big reward, Sorasingha Nikoson has specifically asked for a gecko that is at least 17.5 inches long — that’s a hell of a gecko. And, the larger your lizard, the more you earn. Sorasingha is willing to pay up to THB5 million for an outrageously large reptile.

    Medical groups unite to press for more civil-servant positions By The Nation Seven groups that represent medical workers have joined forces to pressure the government to increase civil-servant positions for their members.

  15. Medical groups unite to press for more civil-servant positions By The Nation Seven groups that represent medical workers have joined forces to pressure the government to increase civil-servant positions for their members. They submitted the petition to the Public Health Ministry and the prime minister through the government’s complaint-receiving centre yesterday. The move followed nurses’ successful efforts in their demand for civil-servant status. These seven groups represent medical technicians, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, cardio thoracic technologists, and speech-language pathologists. “We feel it’s unfair for many of us to have had to work as daily-paid workers, while in fact we work as hard as civil servants,” said Somkid Pheunram, president of the Physical Therapy for Community Association of Thailand. He said the ministry last year recruited just 171 physical therapists as civil servants. “We have worked hard for five years already and our morale has been dwindling,” Somkid said. He said the low number of civil-servant positions approved by the ministry had made physical therapists feel like their hard work is unappreciated and their value ignored. Somkid said members of the six other medical professions had also suffered the same fate. According to him, about 3,300 medical technicians, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, cardio thoracic technologists, and speech-language pathologists have been working at state hospitals since 2011 without civil-servant status. Of them, 51 are daily-paid workers. Due to constraints, the ministry has hired many medical workers, including nurses and members of these other professions, as employees or temporary employees. Their welfare and job security are not the same as civil servants in the same positions, which has caused dissatisfaction. After the meeting with Somkid yesterday, Public Health Ministry’s permanent secretary Dr Sopon Mekton promised to give 308 civil-servant positions to members of the seven less-known medical professions this year. Sopon added that his ministry would also raise the groups concerns with the committee governing the government’s workforce. He said his ministry would try to ensure that members of these groups receive better welfare and employment status. “For example, we may offer better pay and educational opportunities. We will try to ensure they enjoy similar welfare as their peers who work as civil servants,” he added.
