Speaking of home darts, here’s my set up in my garage. If you zoom in, you’ll see the board is very clean, especially around the triple 20 and the bull, as not many darts land there :)
Good luck on Tuesday
No, @AussieBob, absolutely no - race and ethnicity is fundamentally NOT what "nationality" is, either by legal definition or by rational thought, although it may play a part in the national character.
If it were, you couldn't be "Aussie Bob" as only aboriginals could be Australian, the Queen couldn't be British as she'd be forever a German, Sir Mo Farah would still be Somali, etc.
As well as looking at the definitons of race and ethnicity, maybe you should have checked Merriam-Webster's definition of nationality, particularly on national status which is the key point here.
So if he was a 'black' foreigner not a " 'white' foreigner" you think he would have been charged less???
Oh please ...
Thais are Tier 1, with full subsidy / discount, anyone from Laos would have been charged less than him but more than Thais as they are on Tier 2 for hospital charges, with a lower discount / subsidy, like Cambodians, Burmese and Vietnamese, due to reciprocal agreements, while other foreigners (dependent on visa, not nationality / race / ethnicity) are Tier 3 or 4 with less and no discount / subsidy.
Foreigners visiting Australia, including Thais, are ALREADY "charged a higher fee for any Govt medical services that they are provided"!!!
Australia only gives emergency Medicare cover to visitors from eleven other countries with whom it has a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement (RHCA), which doesn't include Thailand, and even that's only for emergency / essential treatment. Everyone else pays in full!
"Fair's fair and all that" ???
How can the exact same thing, even down to RHCAs, be "fair" in Australia, but not "fair" in Thailand?????
How about health officials of the nine Phuket Comprehensive COVID-19 Response teams (Phuket CCR) deployed to test people in communities across the island ..they came to random test 25000 in 3 days but only tested 4000 in 2 days and found 212 tested positive 5% but with antigen tests.. what totals were these added too? .. the only totals I can find is the number held in covid care centres went up by just over 200!
The problem isn't as easy to solve as many people think. It can vary hugely from country to country and Telco to Telco.
One way to block is for the Telco to do it for you. In most cases this is by blocking numbers on a pre-determined list of numbers from previous reports collated over time, either through their own investigations or by data collected by customer reports.
Software programs for mass marketing have been around for many years. Some may not even need you to provide your phone number as they may use an associated dialler program similar to what is used in some outbound sales call centres. Such diallers start at the first number in a phone number sequence and then proceed to call each number after that in turn (e.g. 0400xxxxxa, 0400xxxxxb and so forth). Numbers are verified as been possible valid (in use) numbers depending on the response the dialler gets. That number is then listed for a sms to be sent or one sent automatically depending on the tie in to the software sending program in use.
Other texts are sent from pre-prepared lists of numbers programmed into the dialler or sms creator. These are obtained from existing customers or some bought legitimately of fraudulently over the internet. Every time you share your mobile number for anything, it has potential to go onto a list.
Most blocks occur because the Telco has received previous reports from known frauds, customer calls and even law enforcement. Hence systems have been updated with new number to block the originating dialler number. But even that is only temporarily effective. All the fraud types do is go an buy another prepaid number!
Success can also be limited by the various Telcos across the world and simple incompatibility of computer systems. Not every Telco in the world offers exactly the same service. So how it is set up in one country can actually bypass the security features in another.
The best things to do. Check the Telco's website as some have details on their site. Or contact your Telco for advice. The more information they have the better. Don't assume the operator taking your call can see everything. For example, in Australia, customer facing staff were blocked from seeing certain information due to various legal reasons. Be nice to them, remembering they didn't send you the text!
And most importantly, if you have a gut feeling about an sms being a fraud, don't reply to it and don't click on any links. You may be surprised how many people actually do respond and then often it is too late!

The monarchy-reform and anti-government protests have come to a point over the past weeks where groups diverged and took a different path in an attempt to achieve their goals.
