Airport warns of taking photos of landing aircraft at Nai Yang Beach | The Thaiger

A meeting was held yesterday (May 17), led by the Phuket International Airport General Manager Petch Chancharoen, to discuss a YouTube post.

The meeting follows a ‘youtube’ channel user, ‘donprozento’, posting a video on March 10. The video shows tourists taking photos of an aircraft landing. The aircraft was landing on the runway 09.

The meeting was to address measures to prevent potential danger to tourists taking photos near the area as well as any problems that could be caused by a drone.

Mr Petch said “We strictly check on the safety as that is our main concern. CCTV cameras have been installed near the area as well as three metre fences and warning signs. Security staff member are patrolling the area every hour.”

“The law will be strictly enforced for any offence of the rules. Both Thai and foreign tourists must not take pictures in this restricted area. This is to prevent any harm to both tourists on the beach and aircraft landing on the sea approach to the airport.”

30,000 uni students take the long and winding road up Doi Suthep | The Thaiger

Some 30,000 students, past and present, and staff from the Chiang Mai University headed up Thailand’s tallest mountain yesterday on the university’s annual trek to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.

It’s the university’s 55th anniversary of the annual climb.

Freshmen from 20 faculties from two of the CMU campuses trekked up the winding 14 kilometre road from their university’s main campus at the foothill to the summit of the sacred Doi Suthep.

Police provided security along the route while medical teams were also on hand to provide first-aid at 10 service points. At the summit, the students performed merit-making at the temple, praying for good luck for their studies ahead.

This traditional annual trek has been held since 1964 in order to bring the student body together, and it also serves as a rite of passage ceremony for first-year students, giving them a chance to make new friends and form new bonds with the seniors and with fellow ‘freshers’.

Another dead dugong found off the coast of Trang

Another dead dugong found off the coast of Trang | The Thaiger

Another dead dugong has been discovered floating in the Andaman Sea, between Koh Ya in Trang and Koh Ngai Island in Krabi. The corpse was discovered yesterday by a local tour boat.

It’s been a bad year for the local dugong population with many dead or sick mammals being discovered, and the high profile cases of Mariam and Jamil, the baby dugongs that were found but die later in captivity.

The find was reported to the 10th office of marine and coastal resources, by Mr. Somsak Panthumet, president of Trang professional tourist guides, as he led a tour group on an island-hopping tour in the Andaman Sea.

Somsak reportedly took pictures of the eviscerated dugong corpse as evidence to be handed over to the officials. He was also told to tie the dead dugong to some floating containers to make it easier to relocate.

However, when a boat was dispatched to collect the corpse, officials failed to find it after five hours of searching in strong winds and rough seas. Officials say they will resume the search again when the weather calms down.

After viewing the pictures taken by the tour guide, an official admitted it was impossible to tell the gender, age or weight of the dead dugong which, he added, was the 10th this year to be found in the sea off Trang province.

The seas around Koh Libong in Trang province is home to an estimated 200 dugong, Thailand’s largest concentration, thanks to the area’s abundance of sea grass.

US Fed poised to cut rates this week

US Fed poised to cut rates this week | The Thaiger

Facing a dauntingly uncertain economic horizon and constant criticism, including insults and demands for stimulus from the US president, the US Federal Reserve is set to cut interest rates this week.

In speeches and public appearances, Chairman Jerome Powell promised the Fed will “act as appropriate” to preserve the current expansion.

While the world’s largest economy is in a “good place,” he has warned of “significant risks” to a deteriorating outlook, persistently low inflation and a trade war that looks set to drag on – views echoed by influential New York Fed President John Williams.

Futures markets overwhelmingly forecast the Fed will lower rates at the conclusion of the two-day meeting of the policy committee on Friday. And another cut before the end of the year is more likely than not.

Indeed, Kathy Bostjancic, chief US financial economist at Oxford Economics, told AFP her firm expects three more cuts this year, meaning the central bank will cut at every policy meeting left in 2019.

“It’s good that the economy is not crumbling right now,” she said, “and that’s a good time to take out some stimulus.”

Which of course raises the question: why cut rates again?

“The sky is not falling. The jobless rate has been at or near historic lows for a year and a half. Consumer spending is resilient. Inflation is firming. Wages are up. Job creation is healthy. GDP growth seems to be holding up. Business and consumer confidence are softening but still high.”

So why the pit-of-the-stomach feeling among so many?

‘Boneheads’

For starters, the only thing sustaining the US economy at the moment is consumer spending, which accounts for two-thirds of GDP. But by the time that starts to weaken, it will be too late – the recession will have begun already.

Hiring, while strong, has slowed. Business investment is moribund. Exports are weakening. And manufacturing – always a vital economic weather vane – is in recession.

Meanwhile, the global economy is slowing.

To top it off, Trump may not know how to end the trade fight he picked 18 months ago with China, the world’s second-largest economy.

Higher tariffs and uncertainty have moved from posing a risk to actually hurting the economy, including job losses – about 11,000 in August alone, according to one estimate.

Beijing and Washington in recent days have made olive-branch gestures, lifting market hopes of a resolution, or at the very least a truce in a conflict that deteriorated badly following the Fed’s rate cut in July.

But there is a risk the good feelings may not endure. After all, truces reached in December and June did not last long.

“We’ve been let down before,” Bostjancic said.

Policymakers face the added burden of trying to be heard over the din of Trump’s unprecedented public assaults on the central bank, she said.

Before addressing solemn commemorative ceremonies at the Pentagon on the morning of September 11, Trump took to Twitter to lambast policymakers as “boneheads.”

Since the central bank’s last policy meeting at the end of July, he has tweeted out complaints and attacks on Fed once every 22 hours on average, descending ever further into name calling and personal denigration, according to an AFP analysis of Trump’s tweets.

Despite hailing the American economy’s vigor, Trump has demanded immediate stimulus of the kind reserved for dire economic crises, calling for benchmark rates of “ZERO or less.”
