  1. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    From the Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality.[1][2][3] Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programmes such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, gender equality and international cooperation.
  2. G4T Promenade Chiang Mai

    I'd be interested to know the increase / decrease in numbers of retirement extensions, 90 day reports, medical etc, year on year for the last 10 years.
  3. G4T Promenade Chiang Mai

    Thanks for the info PFV.
  4. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    Usually when a topic like this pops up I remember the line in a Simon and Garfunkle song: "A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest" If you really want to get on with human's impact on the planet then read 'Ishmael' by Daniel Quinn.
  5. With most western countries failing to prosecute bankers criminally I guess it would be hard to fly anywhere in the world.
  6. Ken Burns Vietnam PBS

    I use the Opera Browser that has a built in VPN. I was able to watch the trailer with it.
  7. Good advice Nancy. Learning the vowels, consonants and tone rules helps sort out the sounds. It is also helpful when the teacher shows the student how to hold the mouth to create sounds we are unfamiliar with. MaPrang is an excellent teacher. MaPrang Language School Sermsuk Rd. Same building as Corner Bistro next door to Croco Pizza. 081 022 4540

  9. Chromebook CTRL-L

    Do your instructions tell you to press the escape key after ctrl-l? That brings up a menu of bootable devices. This link will take you to the instructions I used to install Bodhi Linux on my Acer c720: jeffhoogland.blogspot.com/2014/01/howto-bodhi-linux-on-acer-c720.html It may be of help but it is a few years old. I use BodhiLinux on my Acer because it is way different (and fun) from most Linux distributions and the keymapping in the default theme was geared to the Acer c720. Another possibility is how the image written to the USB stick you are using is done. In some cases Unetbootin does not create a bootable image. If you used Unetbootin try using the dd command to write the image to the USB stick.
  10. Printing / Scans in US Letter size

    Thanks for the info. I'm not sure I want to invest in a printer and other accessories. I'll just use A4 from the copy shop and cut .7 inches off the bottom. The width difference is only .2 inches less than US Letter size. I do this very rarely.
  11. Printing / Scans in US Letter size

    The only reason for this is convenience when receiving documents via file such as pdf files scanned in the USA, printing them out to sign or fill in the blanks and mailing hard copies back to USA.
  12. Is there anywhere in Chiang Mai that can scan and print documents in US Letter size (8.5x11 inches)? Preferably around Santitham or Kad Suan Kaew area? A4 is 8.3 x 11.7 inches so I guess I could cut .7 off the bottom.
  13. Thanks for the info. For me it is not a big deal I might as well comply.
  14. Surely this has been mentioned before. I did a basic search but didn't see anything on this. In the pamphlet that arrived in the mail with my SS approval letter there is a statement that has me wondering. "I agree to notify the Social Security Administration promptly if I (or any person for whom I receive benefits) become employed or self-employed while outside the United States, change citizenship, or go (for 30 days or more) to any country other than the residence address I have entered in this application." Do I have to notify them that I am in Thailand most of the year? If it matters, my address filed with SS is in California and so is the bank that the money from SS will be deposited into. Am I reading it wrong? TIA
  15. Noted. Sorry to veer off course.... Last comment from me. I called my insurance company and there is no restrictions on length of time I can be out of the country. Also, they are sending me information to make my regular coverage 'portable' internationally.
