  6. Fantastic! School kids collect thousands of ring pulls for those less fortunate Halle and her brother Buddy with the ring pulls the collected Two children in Nakhon Si Thammarat have collected more than 8,000 aluminium ring pulls that will be used to help create prosthetics for amputees in Thailand. Halle, 8, and her brother Buddy, 6, embarked on the heartwarming venture after being told at school how the ring pulls can be reused to create prosthetics. The children's British father Chris, who has lived in Kapang Thongsong Nakhon Si Thammarat since 2002 with his Thai wife Laddawan and the children, told Thaivisa how Halle and Buddy first began collecting the ring pulls when they would go and visit their Granddad, Chris’s father, who lives in Ao Nang, Krabi. They started by collecting the ring pulls from cans that had washed up on the beach. Before long they had a collected enough ring pulls to fill a small bag, which they took to school and gave to their teacher. However, they didn’t hear much about it from the school after that. Halle with her Grandad after collecting ring pulls in Krabi Unperturbed, a determined Halle decided she was going to continue collecting the ring pulls and hand them in herself to Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital. By now, Halle, Buddy and her granddad were regularly visiting massage huts along the beaches in Krabi and removing the ring pulls from cans. During their school holidays the kids managed to fill three much larger bags, eventually collecting a whopping 8,623 ring pulls! Halle collecting ring pulls from cans discarded at beaches in Krabi On 7 July, Halle and Buddy handed in the ring pulls to Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital where they will be recycled for use in prosthetics for people in Thailand. And the kids won't stop there. Halle, who started collecting the ring pulls out of her own free will, has told her father how she plans to collect even more when she stays with her granddad during the next school holidays.

  7. Reliability Torments the Thai Visa Sponsored TR-Motorsport Porsche in Buriram After the sweltering heat and humidity of Sepang in Malaysia, the Unixx TR-Motorsport Team came home to the Chang International Circuit in Buriram for Rounds 3 & 4 of the Thailand Super Series 2018. Sepang proved a successful weekend with the Dane Thomas Raldorf and Co-driver Shaun Varney from New Zealand bringing home a good haul of points under difficult conditions. Rounds 3 & 4 would prove an even bigger challenge as several new supercars had joined the GTM Class for this season. As always the team arrived early in the week to begin preparations for the task ahead, Thursday was the first time the cars could get some track time and see how they were shaping up for the weekend ahead. Practice The success of Sepang was soon forgotten as several issues were affecting all three cars, first of all the Porsche 997 had gearbox, gear shift and suspension issues as well as a loose left side door. The teams of mechanics worked through the night and well into the next day as the gearbox and gear shifters were overhauled while the door was secured in place, with all the time spent on the repairs no time was left to alter the setup in time for qualifying, this lack of time would prove costly. Qualifying Both Shaun and then Thomas struggled to find the right balance in their two qualifying sessions, Shaun battled hard to secure 7th in class for Race 1 while Thomas squeezed every inch out of the Porsche 997 to claim 5th in class for Race 2. The mechanics had another long night ahead to try to find the best setup and balance to give the car the best opportunity for a podium position. GTM Supercar Race 1 – Thomas Raldorf/Shaun Varney – Porsche 997 Shaun Varney took the first stint in the 997 while Thomas and the rest of the team watched on anxiously to see if the issues had been fixed, but it was soon obvious they hadn’t as Shaun Pushed as hard as he could but with the cars lack of setup the lap times weren’t competitive, this was even more compounded when Shaun radioed to the pit to report an issue when shifting gears. As the team made their pit stop Shaun had managed to get the car into a respectable 6th in class, now it was time for the Danish Dynamo to try push on up the field. The race was littered with incidents resulting in several safety car periods allowing for the field to bunch up and give the team a chance of a higher position. Thomas seized the opportunity and with some expert driving and a little bit of luck crossed the line in 4th position. This was some achievement after all the issues the team had endured, however, the celebrations were soon muted as in the post-race scrutineering it was found that a technical issue had breached regulations resulting in the team being disqualified from the results and losing 18 precious championship points. The team of mechanics although dejected quickly turned their attention to the setup of the car and again worked late into the night to give the guys a fighting chance in Race 2. Race 2 Due to the number of incidents in Race 1, all the teams were allowed on the track in the morning to complete several warm-up laps. Thomas duly took the Porsche out and returned to the pit gleaming as the car was now handling perfectly, demonstrated by Thomas going 1.7 seconds faster than his fastest lap in Race 1. With the improved setup and a 10-second reduction for their mandatory pit stop/driver change, the team were confident of a top 3 position. Thomas made a solid start from 5th holding off the more powerful cars behind him while catching up to the cars ahead and eventually took 4th place. The pit window opened and in came Thomas for the driver changeover, all was looking good for a top 3 position until disaster struck. The issue with gearbox returned as Shaun could not get any gears to engage, as the clock was ticking the young Kiwi driver desperately tried everything and eventually got the car moving when first gear came alive, however, the damage was already done as the team had lost too much time. The pit stop should have been 2m 17s instead it was an agonisingly long 3m 23s which wiped out the 51-second lead Thomas had built up over the 5th place car. Shaun tried in vain to make up the lost time but after another safety car, any chance of a top 3 position was gone. The safety car was deployed due to the Toyota Driver and Championship leader Khun Nattawude who crashed heavily into the wall promoting the team to 5th place. Shaun consolidated his position and nursed the car home to collect some much-needed points after the previous day’s disqualification. In the race for the GTM Championship, the team are now 15 points behind the Toyota. A very tough and demanding weekend for all connected with the Unixx TR-Motorsport Team but they promise to bounce back in the coastal town of Bang Saen for rounds 5 & 6 of The Thailand Super Series. The Unixx TR-Motorsport will next be in action at the Bang Saen Festival of Speed on the weekend of the 14/15 July.

The Herald Sun in Melbourne described the show as, “a solid new effort from a genuine marvel. Speaking of “one of the most enduring comedians of this age,” The Western Australian said of the show, “Bailey’s disciples came for his rare brand of intellectual humour. He wove history, science and popular culture into laughter - there's rarely a traditional punchline - Bailey’s humour arrives midsentence requiring of the audience deft ears and a quick mind, and his timing is impeccable, pausing just long enough to let the absurdity strike - blink and you'll miss it. An extraordinarily adept musician his version of Abba’s Waterloo in the style of Rammstein was absurdity in extremis - may the troll return.” In 2011 Bill performed one of the biggest comedy gigs in the world, performing to some 60,000 fans at Knebworth, when he headlined the Sonisphere Rock Festival alongside rock gods Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. In 2013 Bill fronted a two-part BBC2 documentary, Bill Bailey’s Jungle Hero, in which he retraced the steps of his unsung hero of the natural world, Alfred Russel Wallace. In Jungle Hero Bill told of Wallace’s extraordinary 8 year expedition across Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore in his quest to unravel the mystery of the Origin of Species. On the big screen, Bill appeared in the film Saving Grace, had a cameo appearance in the comedy feature Hot Fuzz and was seen playing Farmer Macreadie in the comedy sequel, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. Bill also appeared in the John Landis comedy Burke and Hare and the snowboarding rom-com, Chalet Girl. In 2016, Bill wrote and illustrated Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to British Birds. The book was a humorous and personal insight into his favourite British Birds, packed with Bill’s own anecdotes, drawings, cartoons and field notes. Bill was presented with an Honorary Doctorate of the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia for his outstanding contribution to the environment on a global scale. Vice-Chancellor and President of the University, Professor Greg Hill said, “We believe Bill’s commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainability, particularly in Southeast Asia and Indonesia, demonstrates excellence and deserves recognition.” Bill has long been a supporter of numerous charities including International Animal Rescue, with whom he visited dancing bear sanctuaries in India in 2005. He is also patron of Good Vibrations and The Music House for Children, as well as an Ambassador for Youth Music.

An extraordinarily adept musician his version of Abba’s Waterloo in the style of Rammstein was absurdity in extremis - may the troll return.” In 2011 Bill performed one of the biggest comedy gigs in the world, performing to some 60,000 fans at Knebworth, when he headlined the Sonisphere Rock Festival alongside rock gods Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. In 2013 Bill fronted a two-part BBC2 documentary, Bill Bailey’s Jungle Hero, in which he retraced the steps of his unsung hero of the natural world, Alfred Russel Wallace. In Jungle Hero Bill told of Wallace’s extraordinary 8 year expedition across Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore in his quest to unravel the mystery of the Origin of Species. On the big screen, Bill appeared in the film Saving Grace, had a cameo appearance in the comedy feature Hot Fuzz and was seen playing Farmer Macreadie in the comedy sequel, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. Bill also appeared in the John Landis comedy Burke and Hare and the snowboarding rom-com, Chalet Girl. In 2016, Bill wrote and illustrated Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to British Birds. The book was a humorous and personal insight into his favourite British Birds, packed with Bill’s own anecdotes, drawings, cartoons and field notes. Bill was presented with an Honorary Doctorate of the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia for his outstanding contribution to the environment on a global scale. Vice-Chancellor and President of the University, Professor Greg Hill said, “We believe Bill’s commitment to wildlife conservation and sustainability, particularly in Southeast Asia and Indonesia, demonstrates excellence and deserves recognition.” Bill has long been a supporter of numerous charities including International Animal Rescue, with whom he visited dancing bear sanctuaries in India in 2005. He is also patron of Good Vibrations and The Music House for Children, as well as an Ambassador for Youth Music. He continues to support many others, including The Sumatran Orang Utan Society, Bowel Cancer UK, Prostate Cancer UK, The Asthma Society and Reprieve.
