Vladimir Putin officially annexed four parts of Ukraine

In an elaborate ceremony in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin officially annexed four parts of Ukraine. The move has drawn condemnation as he tries to lay diplomatic claim to lands that Ukraine forces have been regaining on the ground. Putin announced ominously that anyone living in the four regions is now permanently a Russian citizen, and attendees chanted ” Russia! Russia!” in response. “I want to say this to the Kyiv regime and its masters in the West: People living in Lugansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia are becoming our citizens forever.” Ukrainian leaders vowed to fight back against the declaration […]

Phuket Airport officials pulled tourist from van, insisted they use airport taxi

The Phuket taxi situation has been under a microscope recently after accusations of taxi mafias, bad behaviour by drivers, and several outright brawls between cab drivers in front of tourists have blemished the reputation of Thailand and Phuket in particular. Another recent incident at the Phuket International Airport went viral on social media when passengers were asked to get out of a minivan and use an airport taxi instead. While many bus stations and ferry piers have faced accusations that their exclusive arrangements with certain local taxi drivers constitute a taxi mafia, it has long been the case in Thailand […]

The long goodbye – Which way now for PM Prayut?

No matter which side you are on, yesterday’s Constitutional Court ruling gives us some measure of much-needed clarity. After weeks of debate and rumour, we now know that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s term started on April 6, 2017, the date the present charter came into force. His previous leadership as part of the junta government does not count. What we know is that Prayut’s tenure in office must expire in 2025. If he chooses to run in, and if he wins, May’s election, he can be premier only for two more years. The ruling turns out to be something of […]

Garbage in canals is worsening flooding in Bangkok

With heavy rainfall creating flooding around Thailand, officials say it’s not just the massive water pelting down that’s to blame for the Bangkok floods. Another culprit plays a significant role in the flooding: dumped garbage. While the capital city needs improvements to the drainage systems, an epidemic of junk bottlenecking the water flow is also to blame. The Chao Phraya River, running through Bangkok has become inundated with trash dumped by people. Old mattresses and furniture along with other common household items no longer wanted have been ditched in Bangkok canals. They can block the flow of water into the […]

Hurricane Ian lashes South Carolina

A reinvigorated Hurricane Ian battered South Carolina Friday, deluging neighbourhoods with calf-high water.  The storm caused calamitous damage in Florida and trapped thousands in their homes.
