  4. PM in Brussels for 12th ASEM and EU-ASEAN Leader's Meeting BRUSSELS, 19th October 2018 (NNT) – The Prime Minister has met Thai citizens living in Belgium ahead of taking part in the 12th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and EU-ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting. Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-ocha was greeted by Thai citizens residing in the Belgian capital Brussels, as he arrived at his hotel in the city, receiving a bouquet of flowers and chocolates as well as personally grown vegetables from them. Addressing the crowd, the PM expressed his happiness at their presence and asked them not to pay attention to much of the distorted information being circulated internationally, stating that solving the Kingdom’s problems is complicated and requires an overhaul of its education, economy and connectivity. He assured them that his priority is maintaining peace and order. The PM afterwards met and handed out policy decisions to members of the Thai team taking part in the 3rd Asia-Europe Youth Leaders’ Meeting at the Thai Embassy in Brussels. Minister of Foreign Affairs Don Poramudwinai said his and the Prime Minister’s presence in Belgium provided a good opportunity to explain the nation’s road map and current political situation. The 12th ASEM is being held on the central topic “Europe and Asia: Global Partnerships for Global Challenges”. It is being attended by leaders of 51 countries and personnel of both the European Union and the Office of the ASEAN Secretary-General. Director-General of the Department of Information and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson, Busadee Santipitak said today that ASEM provides a good opportunity for Thailand to enhance its role on the world stage, saying that the PM’s key address will outline a vision of cooperation, sustainable network building and support for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. He is also to seek multilateral cooperation on regional issues during informal meetings. After ASEM, the PM is to attend the European Union-ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting to discuss EU-ASEAN cooperation and Thailand’s role as chair of the bloc in 2019. He is also to hold bilateral meetings with several national leaders. -- nnt 2018-10-19

    Thai drivers ignoring 11 million traffic tickets By The Nation FILE photo With drivers in Thailand currently ignoring more than 11 million traffic tickets, police are hastening efforts to link their online database with the Land Transport Department’s vehicle registration system.

  6. Thai drivers ignoring 11 million traffic tickets By The Nation FILE photo With drivers in Thailand currently ignoring more than 11 million traffic tickets, police are hastening efforts to link their online database with the Land Transport Department’s vehicle registration system. Pol Lt Gen Kraiboon Suadsong, head of a police committee in charge of solving traffic snarls in Metropolitan Bangkok, said 13,515,036 traffic tickets had been issued this year as of October 7 and recorded in the Royal Thai Police Ticket Management System. But only 2,338,968 of the drivers ticketed had paid their fines, leaving the rest – 83 per cent – in violation of the law. Of the 13.5 million tickets, 2.31 million were issued on the spot, while the rest were mailed to drivers caught on camera violating traffic laws. Kraiboon said no fines had been remitted for 1.33 million tickets issued on the spot and 9.838 million tickets mailed out. Kraiboon said he had instructed the IT team of the Royal Thai Police to work out with the Land Transport Department to link the PTM and vehicle registration systems. Motorists who do not pay their fines would be unable to renew their vehicle registration annually as required.

    Teachers must adapt to changing world, summit told By The Nation The role of a teacher must go beyond lecturing in an era where advanced technology alienates people from one another and online information is a mix of truth and lies, Royal Society member Prof Emeritus Sumon Amornvivat said at a recent summit.

  8. Teachers must adapt to changing world, summit told By The Nation The role of a teacher must go beyond lecturing in an era where advanced technology alienates people from one another and online information is a mix of truth and lies, Royal Society member Prof Emeritus Sumon Amornvivat said at a recent summit. Teachers must arrange a learning process for students' physical and mental development for a well-rounded well-being, she said at the 11th Annual Congress for Teacher Professional Development at the IMPACT Muangthong Thani on October 17-19. With calls for equity, rights and liberty as the country becomes more of a democratic society, education emphasising life and social development becomes more varied and teachers' roles expand from being a lecturer of knowledge to also managing the learning process to develop the youths' brains, hearts and minds. Teachers should also be students' friends to help keep them on the path for good as children spend four to seven hours a day at school. This is enough time to forge a loving bond, she said, that will lead to endless learning opportunities and lasting friendships, the 86-year-old Sumon said, adding that she has stayed in contact with former students and younger generations. Education is a human development process that eradicates ignorance and promotes knowledge and wisdom, she said. An independent committee for education reform member, Prof Emeritus Charas Suwanwela, said teachers were important for the country to overcome poverty and become more competitive. The Thailand 4.0 policy for education did not limit learning to only computer and technology system development, but also to innovative management of education and gave more freedom to restore faith to teachers, students and schools. "The role of Faculty of Education does not end when students graduate and get their degree, but also serves as life-long education. They must become the Transformative Education as there is the need for flexibility and constant self-improvement," Charas said. Transformative Education allows learners to engage in appropriate and challenging ways of learning and to critically assess and develop their beliefs, values and habits of thinking that they will have learnt uncritically when younger. Charas also urged school administrators to have an open mind and be more supportive to changes in digital and social transformation. The Digital Learning Platform should be applied to boost education quality, reduce inequity and create the community of learning, he said. The education reform needed co-operation from all sides, he added. The EDUCA 2018 was held with the theme promoting the Value of Teachers in response to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)'s report published earlier this year that cited a crisis where teachers were suffering from stress and burnout and another study that found fewer than a third of teachers believe that teaching is a valued profession.

So much so that fishing in the area was being disrupted. Thai Rath reported that some of the jellyfish were caught to sell to traders for preserving in salt. But now the traders didn't want to accept any more. The inundation was blamed on the change in the weather in the area of Khan Kradai Bay in Ao Noi.

  12. Video: Take down the knicker nicker! Sanook reporters went to investigate after a man went online to ask for assistance in finding a thief on a motorcycle who was caught on CCTV stealing ladies underwear. The owner of the building in Phetchabun said that five or six pairs of knickers were carefully selected and stolen in the daylight raid. Following the theft the miscreant made a clean getaway along the Saraburi - Lomsak road. The make of bike or number plate were not known. But hopefully someone might recognize the man, said Sanook, who suggested in their headline that he probably has a screw loose. The building owner said that this was the first time in six years that underwear had gone missing. Source: Sanook -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-10-19

  14. Sukhothai: Old Thai man caught dragging dog behind his pick-up - but there's a back story Picture: Sanook Thai netizens were outraged when footage was posted online that showed a pick-up in Sukhothai dragging a dog. The dog was large and by now very much dead. At the wheel of the pick-up was an 84 year old man. But what seemed like a tale of horrendous animal cruelty turned out to have an entirely different back story. Sanook reporters went to the home of "Uncle Therm" who lives in Thap Pheung sub-district in the northern Thai province. Therm explained that he had got up for his early morning alms giving routine on Wednesday morning. In the driveway of his house was a large dog that had been obviously been dead for some. He waited until evening hoping that someone would come to claim it. By dusk he was worried about the smell. He was not strong enough to lift it onto the back of his pick-up and his paralyzed wife was in not position to assist him. He was also worried about contracting rabies. So using a plastic bag as a makeshift glove he moved the dog and attached it by rope on to the back fender of his pick up and decided to drag it to a dump nearby. Sanook noted that there are often two sides to a story. Source: Sanook -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-10-19
