New member ???

During lunch at work, I ate two plates of beans with onions.I know it is a big mistake…
When I got home, my husband seemed excited to see me and yelled cheerfully, “Honey I have a surprise for dinner tonight.”
He then closed my eyes with scarf and led me to my chair at the dinner table. I took a seat and just as he was about to opened my eyes, the telephone rang.
He made me promise not to touch the scarf until he returned and went to answer the call.
The beans I had eaten were begin affecting me and the pressure was becoming irresistible, so while my husband was out of the room I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one leg and let one go. It was not loud, but it smelled like a manure truck running over a skunk in front of a garbage dump! I took my napkin from my lap and fanned the air around me strongly. Then, shifting to the other leg, I ripped off three more. The stink was worse than cooked cabbage. Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the conversation in the other room,
I went on releasing hydrogen bombs like this for another few minutes. The pleasure was ineffable!
Eventually the telephone farewells signaled the end of my freedom, so I quickly fanned the air a few more times with my napkin, placed it on my lap and folded my hands back on it feeling very comfort and glad with myself.
My face have been like the picture of Mona Lisa when my husband returned, apologizing for taking so long. He asked me if I had opened my eyes,and I assured him I had not.
At this point,he opened my eyes,and twelve dinner guests seated around the table, with their hands to their noses, chorused, “Happy Birthday Mrs.Fart!”
Education and Teachers Forum / For one teacher, every student is a winner

For one teacher, every student is a winner

 A path-breaking teacher, Shinnakorn Pimpila, has imparted his young students a precious lesson – everyone can be the best in their own way.

All 17 students from his Prathom 6 class, who turned up at Na Si Nuan School in Sakon Nakhon province on March 28 to learn about their performance during the past academic year, were pleasantly surprised to know that they had all been honoured.

Pongthep Pongphan, for example, was acknowledged as the best singer and actor in the class while Methawee Supawang won praise for remarkable fishing skills. Another student, Thirapon Donsawang, was named “outstanding volunteer” for handing milk cartons to his classmates every single day.

“I have assessed my students based on their skills, not their academic performance,” Shinnakorn said.

Not surprisingly, all students were thrilled by the recognition from the teacher.

 Pictures of the announcement were uploaded on social media, along with the preening faces of the happy children.

The pictures, and the emotions they kindled, have prompted several people to revive the debate on whether schools really need to subject children to gruelling exams, the kind that impose much pressure on students.

“I want to introduce new ways of teaching and assessments. I want to promote active learning. Along the process, teachers will understand more about their students and support their potential development,” Shinnakorn said.

He said he had actively engaged his students in class activities since he started teaching eight years ago in the hope that learning experiences would prove practical in real life.

“Engagement will increase students’ self-value and esteem. It’s a way to make children realise that they are valuable to both themselves and others,” he said.

Shinnakorn said he could organise various kinds of active learning thanks to support from school executives and local communities.

“Communities are important. For example, when there was a project to build check-dams in the area, I could take my students to see the construction. There, I could teach students about the ecological system and environmental protection. My teaching could also cover biodiversity,” he said.

Shinnakorn used to teach Mathayom 5 students, too and some of his students could use class projects to apply for a seat at their chosen university.

This new-generation teacher believes he is now on the right track and hopes others will follow suit.

“Let’s consider empowering children in a fresh, new way. Step out of the box to understand them better. Help them identify their potential and support them,” Shinnakorn said.

Shinnakorn added that his teaching style did not undermine the core essence of the country’s current educational structure, but complemented it.

“Not all children will become doctors in the future. Teachers and schools thus should not press children too hard about their Ordinary National Educational Test,” he said. “Please pay attention to the fact that society needs people to be engaged in various occupations and people who have not excelled in academic affairs may have good life skills.”
Transport & Traffic / Plans to raise speed limits to boost road safety
« Last post by thaiga on April 08, 2018, 12:18:42 PM »
Police Propose Higher Speed Limits for Highways and Slower Limits for Urban Areas

The Royal Thai Police and the Ministry of Interior are considering increasing speed limits on highways and decreasing speed limits in urban areas which would see the first change in speed limit laws since 1979.

The proposal comes after discussions about how road conditions had significantly improved over the last 37 years. Roads are now more than one or two lanes wide, and road surfaces mean driving at higher speeds is safer than back when the previous law was written.

The current speed limit of 80-90 km/h on highways harks back to a time when highways had only two traffic lanes.

The new proposal would set speed limits on inter-provincial highways with no intersections or crossroads at at maximum of 110 km/h.

For urban areas, the current speed limit is 80 km/h which authorities attribute to the high number of pedestrian fatalities. Of the 20,000 people who die in traffic accidents every year, 2,000 are pedestrians, according to Thai PBS.

Dr Thanapong Jinvong, manager of the Road Safety Group Thailand, suggests that the urban speed limit should be set at the international standard of 50 km/h, however police are currently discussing a reduction from 80 km/h to 60 km/h in urban areas.

The proposal is still in the discussion stage.

Who's to blame here?  Dude actually brushed so close to my vehicle, you could see where his jacket rubbed off the dirt.  No damage to my vehicle, though.
