Although, Mr. Thaksin Shinawatra has left Thailand for 4 years, however, the Thai government still kept an eye on him continually like "where he is, "what he is doing?". According to a Foreign Ministry source, now Mr. Thaksin is in Brunei. He has visited 2 countries which are Cambodia and Brunei. He also has been treated very well when he visited these countries, nevertheless, Phithak Phrombubpha wanted to maintain a relation between Thailand and Brunei. On the other hand, Panich Vikitsreth, a Democrat MP for Bangkok and Chavanont Intarakomalsut, secretary to the foreign minister, confirmed Thaksin was staying near Thailand. They knew this information from messages posted on Twitter accounts. Therefore, Thaksin did not play much Twitter recently to keep him as secret.
In my opinion, I consider that everything which involves a politic is so boring and I really hope that someone can help making the situation better. According to the news, I agree with the government that they still keep an eye on Thaksin, not only where he is but also what he isdoing as I think he is the main cause of all the problems. Therefore, this is a good solution to watch out for the stability of Thailand and make a peace occured in Thailand again.

After Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva proclaimed to use the Emergency Decree in several provinces of Thailand for 4 months where the unrest situation occurred. It could make the situation of disquiet better continuously; therefore, the Emergency Decree forbids to form a group more than 5 people. However, it still happened many agitations like bombing in front of King Power shop on Rangnam Road few days ago. For the reason, Mr. Abhisit believed that Bangkok will be the last province where the Emergency Decree wouldl be abolished because the security agencies insisted that the situation in the northeastern had gotten back to normal already, but the decree is still used in Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, Udon Thani, Khon Kaen, Nakhon Ratchasima. Moreover, the bombing also makes the security be increased.
According to the news, I agree with this because now Bangkok still has the situation of unrest like bombing, many agitations,etc. Besides that, I realized that Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, so it is the target of agitators. It should be acquired the highest security. As the more Bangkok is damaged, the more has an effect on Thailand's image. Therefore, I think that the government should proceed to use the Emergency Decree to maintain a peace in Thailand until all the situation will bounce back.

Who will know that just little trees can help a hotel business to continue?, but they know: Samui hoteliers. They realize that having many trees can aid small hotels to proceed their tourism's business. For this reason, they created their own project named " Green Strategy". They consider that planting a tree could make foreign tourists see that they are aware of nature conservation which attract many tourists, because most of tourists prefer to stay among a nature. Moreover, Green Strategy could be a good selling point of the hotels and it also could save their expenses. Since they started this project, they have saved the money about one million baht and they have got an Asean Green Hotel Award and three Green Leaves Awards as well.
In my opinion, I agree with the project as I think not only it can be a point of sale for small businesses in order to move on, but it also can solve many environmental problems. Without maintaining the trees, the world will be much warmer and became a major problem like "Global Warming" which is the most serious problem currently. Therefore, I think that it's time we should end to do many actions and activities that cause of occurring the global warming and focus on saving our environment and our world together.

Currently, water is sold in several different forms like in a glass or in a bottle, but most is in a bottle form. For selling a bottled water, it has many different prices depending on places; for example, the roadside shops would sell the bottled water cheaper than many luxurious restaurants, pubs, or hotels. It affected to be a problem concerning selling too expensive bottled water which many consumers faced the problem and came out to petition about this. Therefore, Department of Internal Trade (DIT) offered a standard price of selling a 500 -600cc bottle at 7 baht and 14 baht for a 1.5-liter bottle, but the price control excepts some places such as movie theaters, roadside areas, hotels. However, DIT has postponed the approval to September 1st due to many traders claimed that It's hard to respond for consumer's need.
As for me, I have also ever met this problem in many restaurants that prices of bottled water are extremely high. For example, one bottled water cost to 40 or 50 baht, when I saw the prices, I wondered why it's such expensive for a small bottled water as over all the shops sell it only about 7-10 baht, though it has the same quantity and quality. I think it's unfair for consumers like us and I agree that the department focused to protect for consumers' rights.

Thailand has many seas which are so popular with many foreign tourists : Phuket Island, Samed Island, Samui Island, Chang Island, etc. For maintaining the wonderful seas, the Pollution Control Department started the "Star beach" campaign. Each beach will receive a star rating which shows a quality of the beach. The survey results of 233 beaches found that only six beaches that got five-stars rating. It makes the Pollution Control Department really worries about it. They considered that the main cause which affects the unclean beaches is waste water emission. However, they mentioned that waste water treatment also could solve the problem and lead us having a good quality of water. In addition, they really hope that the star rating will encourage people in those local area turn to realize in environment protection.
As for me, I am part of the people who want to see a beautiful beach once again and for that reason I strongly agree with the campaign above. To award beaches star rating gives the opportunities and encouragement for the local people to upgrade their beaches for higher stars. Many stars shows that the beach is clean and safe. Moreover, it attracts tourists to come and spend their precious time on the beautiful beach in Thailand. It makes Thai economy raise up and increase of tourism.

Andaman Sea is one of the most famous sea in my country, Thailand. Andaman Sea is well-known by many divers all over the world that has more than 80 square kilometers of coral reefs for watching. Although, the coral reefs could make the sea has a wonderful sight but there is a natural phenomenon which is called "Bleaching Phenomenon" is destroying them. The main cause of occurred phenomenon is the increasing temperature of the sea. It causes death of many coral reefs. Moreover, the sunlight can destroy the coral as well. Unfortunately, the bleached coral reefs takes a long time to save. The more coral reefs are deep, the more time we spend to recover them. Furthermore, the phenomenon won't happen only in Andaman sea but it also expand occurring to Satun province.
In my opinion, I feel so depressed to hear this news because I love watching the coral reef same as many people who don't want to see the most beautiful scenery of the sea like coral reefs are destroyed. According to this news, the warmth of the sea causes the bleaching phenomenon. I realize that the phenomenon might be related to global warming which is the problem that consist from human activities. Therefore, I think everyone should participate in solving the problem by resisting some activities that affect the global warming. I consider that if we can reduce the problem of global warming, the opportunity that coral reefs will be damaged by bleaching will be decreased too.

Moreover, the internet also has many options which are known worldwide such as Window Live Messenger (MSN), Hi5, Twitter, Blogger, Skype, etc. However, the option which is the most popular currently is "Facebook".
There are approximately 4.5 million Facebook users in
Thailand. They use Facebook to communicate with other people through the computers or mobile phones (Iphone, Blackberry,). Facebook provides many applications such as Facebook Page, Facebook Chat, and Facebook Game. For these reasons, Ihub Media which is partner of Facebook in Asia decided to increase the seventh branches in Thailand. Ihub Media chief operating officer, George Foo said that Facebook has come to be the most popular social network and Thailand is a country which has Facebook's growth rapidly. Facebook services both Facebook users and advertisers. The advertising services that is Homepage Ads and Ads space unit which both of them have different charges. Ihub Media had signed contracts with ten advertisers about two months after having established the office in Thailand. However, George Foo also expects to have many Facebook customers in the future.
As for me, I am one of many people who are Facebook users as well. I usually use Facebook to communicate with my friends and other people. It also makes me have more friends and societies. Besides that, I can enjoy Facebook applications which there are many games and quizzes are provided. According to the news, I think that not only Facebook's growth will not stop but it also have a large number of users more and more in few years.
