Women warned to call 1155 before transferring money to handsome men met online

 Police have warned women to beware of romance scams after two recent victims lost more than Bt200,000 to a Nigerian who approached them via online networks using a false profile.

“Before you transfer any money to anyone, please call 1155 to check,” Technology Crime Suppression Division’s deputy director Pol MajGeneral Surachate Hakparn advised on Sunday.

According to him, Nzeribe Daniel Nwaungwo – a Nigerian who entered Thailand illegally – portrayed himself as a goodlooking American on Facebook and developed an online romantic relationships with women he met there before convincing them to transfer money to him.

“To one victim, he said he was a US soldier. To the other victim, he said he was a businessman. They are all lies,” Surachate said.

He said police had already arrested Nwaungwo after tracing him to Chiang Rai province.
Health Care / Do you read the label - foods containing trans fats
« Last post by thaiga on July 16, 2018, 02:21:22 PM »
Not before time Public Health bans foods containing trans fats A lot more has to be done as some of the yummy food is not healthy at all. oh! just this once won't hurt which turns into a daily saying. good to raise the awareness since many people are unaware of the risks or even what they buy.

A ministerial order has been issued by the Public Health Ministry banning the production, import and distribution of food containing trans fat.

The order which was issued on June 13 and will become effective 180 days after its publication in the Royal Gazette cited scientific evidence that trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated oils will increase the risk of heart diseases and stroke.  It is also associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Common foods which contain trans fats include cakes, pies and cookies, margarine, crackers, microwave popcorn, cream-filled candies, doughnuts, breakfast sandwiches, fried fast foods, frozen pizza.

It is not known when the ministerial order will be published in the Royal Gazette.

There must be some mistake or a fake tweet, no one in their right mind would put themself in the front line of a claim, for accusing, unless they had evidence, that's a serious allegation. although it's been removed. interesting tweets here

Yes of course the letter e, thanks for joining in Shaky. now the story behind that post.

A kid's wrong answer to this riddle went viral. It shows a lot about how we process death. not a nice subject but we all get there in the end  :-[

The first guess from one of the 1st graders was “death” and such an awed, somber, reflective hush fell over the class that I didn’t want to tell them that actually the answer is the letter e, which just seemed so banal in the moment  Teacher Bret Turner (@bretjturner) January 2, 2018

People on Twitter got a huge kick out of the somewhat dark, existential moment. But there might just be an important lesson buried in this story somewhere about how to process "the end."
