children's day (wan dek)

Children are the future of a country and in Thailand, they are considered the most valuable resource of the nation. There is a Thai saying that states, “Children are the future of the nation, if the children are intelligent, the country will be prosperous.” Like other countries, Thailand observes National Children’s Day (Thai: วันเด็กแห่งชาติ), celebrated here on the second Saturday of January every year. It is known as “Wan Dek” in Thai. This day is celebrated with fun activities for children and introduces them to their significant role towards the development of the country . The Prime Minister gives each Children’s Day a theme and a slogan. Here is what was chosen for this year by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha:

คำขวัญวันเด็กแห่งชาติ 2559: เด็กดี หมั่นเพียร เรียนรู้ สู่อนาคต

This year’s motto is: “Good children are diligent and crave for learning, for a bright future.”

Thai people celebrate Children’s Day by taking their children out to have fun. Many local authorities such as the Dusit Zoo, Thai Red Cross Museum, Museum Siam, the Army, Navy, and Air force bases, Government House and Parliament House organize special events and let children in for half price or even for free on this day.

15 Hot Technology Products at CES 2019

15 Hot Technology Products at CES 2019
 
 

Each year, the Las Vegas consumer electronics show, or CES, presents the latest developments in many areas of technology.

It is the place to be for people who cannot wait to get a look at the newest products designed to make our lives easier, fun and more productive. The four-day event covers areas such as computers, health, transportation, agriculture and sports.

As this year’s show comes to a close, we have put together a list of some of the most interesting products introduced at CES 2019.

A car with legs

It has become common for auto manufacturers to use CES to show off some of their latest technology and experimental vehicles.

One of this year’s presentations was by South Korean carmaker Hyundai. The company introduced a small model of a “walking car,” which it calls Elevate. It has four movable legs that can raise the main part of the vehicle high off the ground.

The electric-powered vehicle is designed to be used in search-and-rescue operations during emergencies or natural disasters. Hyundai says the Elevate can effectively travel over rough roads and land, while keeping passengers inside safe and still.

Changeable people mover

Germany’s Mercedes presented an experimental self-driving vehicle that it claims can revolutionize transportation for people and goods. The company says the vehicle, called Vision Urbanetic, will be able to easily change bodies depending on its desired use. Mercedes says as a ride-sharing vehicle, the futuristic-looking car can seat 12 people. For transporting goods, a different two-level body can be used to carry many loaded containers.

Fully electric Harley

American manufacturer Harley-Davidson showed off its first fully electric motorcycle, called LiveWire. The company says the bike will be able to go 177 kilometers between charges. It can reach 96 kilometers per hour in under 3.5 seconds. Although Harley is known for building powerful bikes with huge, loud motors, the LiveWire will be unusually quiet. “The loudest sound you hear will be your heart racing,” the company said. The motorcycle will sell for just under $30,000 when it becomes available in August 2019.

 

 

More self-driving vehicles

German car maker BMW demonstrated a self-driving motorcycle. And aircraft company Bell presented an experimental version of its Nexus self-flying air taxi. The company has said its flying vehicles could be transporting people around cities by the mid-2020s.

 

 

Personal robots

In keeping with past shows, there were several new robots introduced at CES 2019. One, called Temi, is really just a computer tablet on wheels. It is designed to be a personal electronic assistant. It moves around the home and performs commands when spoken to. It can link users to friends through voice or video, connect to video or place orders for food or goods.

Another, called Lovot, was created by a Japanese developer. It is small, soft and furry. With large eyes and two small arms, Lovot moves around and reacts to human interaction. The creators say their goal was very simple: to make a robot that makes people happy by increasing levels of comfort and feelings of love.

 

 

BreadBot

Another kind of robot got a lot of attention at CES this year for making one of America’s favorite foods, bread. The BreadBot is a machine designed to completely make bread on its own. Creators of the robot baker say it can produce 10 loaves of bread an hour. The machine is designed to be placed in food markets where people can watch the bread-making process before they buy.

Robot art

Another “fun” robot showed off its ability to make pictures on the wall. The Scribitmachine is a small printer that can reproduce images chosen by users. The designers say the robot can also quickly remove the images or reproduce them any time.

 

 

Charging tech

French startup company EnergySquare introduced what it describes as a “universal wireless charger” for laptop computers. The system works by attaching a small piece to the bottom of the laptop that also connects to the computer’s charging port. The user can then place the laptop onto the company’s charging surface to recharge the computer.

People power

A new exercise machine by the U.S.-based company SportsArt is designed to help people stay fit and also generate electricity. The Verde G690 treadmill uses people to operate instead of a motor. The company says the machine can capture up to 200 watts of power per hour from human energy.

 

 

Another machine, the VR Bike from NordicTrack, uses a virtual reality (VR) attachment to transport exercisers through imaginary environments. For example, it permits fitness fans to feel like they are flying while exercising with the machine.

Water from air

U.S.-based Watergen presented a self-producing water machine designed for home or office. Its Genny water generator draws water from the air and cleans it for drinking. The company says the machine can produce up to 30 liters of water per day.

High-tech animal toilet

A group of inventors showed off their new pet product – an automated toilet for dogs. Creators of the Inubox say the device is the first fully self-cleaning solution to capture, process and store dog waste effectively and smell-free.

Quick brush

And finally, a French company introduced a toothbrush it says can “perfectly” clean a person’s teeth in just 10 seconds. The Y-Brush by FasTeesH is a mouthpiece shaped just like human teeth. It has numerous small brushes to clean all teeth at once.

The U.S.-led coalition in Syria is beginning to withdraw troops from the country.

A spokesman for the coalition said it "has begun the process of our deliberatewithdrawal from Syria." The spokesman added that, to protect security, the coalition would not provide details on troop movements.

There are about 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that the withdrawal began late Thursday. It says about 10 armored vehicles and other equipment arrived at a U.S. base in al-Rmelan, in al-Hasaka province. The group also reports that coalition reinforcements arrived at different bases Thursday. A source confirmed that information with VOA.

U.S. national security advisor John Bolton said Friday that talks between U.S. and Turkish military officials will continue next week. The two sides are trying to reach agreement about Kurdish fighters allied with the United States against Islamic State forces in Syria.

Earlier this week, Bolton's calls for the protection of the YPG Syrian Kurdish militia as a condition for a Syrian withdrawal angered Turkey. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan then canceled a planned meeting with Bolton. 

The YPG is an important ally in the U.S. war against the Islamic State. Turkey, however, considers the YPG a terrorist group linked to a rebellion in Turkey.

In his comments, Bolton had said that he, President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held the understanding that Turkey had agreed "not to harm the Kurds who had fought with us against ISIS."

But Bolton also said the United States was still seeking some guarantees of that agreement through “protocols and procedures.”

Erdogan also warned that preparations were complete for a military operation against the YPG.

"We will very soon mobilize to eliminate the terrorist organization in Syria," Erdogan said. 

He added, "If there are other terrorists who would attempt to intervene in our intervention, then it is our duty to eliminate them as well.”

Turkish forces have been deploying for weeks along the Syrian border.

Medical cannabis crops to be tightly controlled

Medical cannabis crops to be tightly controlled | The Thaiger
follow us in feedly

The Thai narcotic control board head says that only Thai citizens who join hands with the government will be allowed to cultivate medical cannabis.

The board yesterday stressed that growers of the potentially lucrative crop must be cooperatives, community enterprises or social enterprises made up of citizens – and not private companies.

Their business will be under the scrutiny of state agencies, must cooperate with those agencies, and must be run by Thai nationals, said the Narcotics Control Board Office secretary-general, Niyom Termsrisuk. He said the agency is also working with Kasetsart University to design a low-cost greenhouse that would enable Thai enterprises to operate their business on a small budget while preventing the crops from “leaking out”.

He added that cannabis grown by farmers might also have to be in a closed area to control air and humidity, in order to stabilise the amount of medical substances in the harvest including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The import, export, distribution and possession of the cannabis will be under the control of related government agencies.

The bill to legalise medical use of marijuana was passed last month, but many are expressing disappointment that the legislation excluded the private sector from the lucrative market.

Meanwhile, the dean of Rangsit University’s Institute of Integrative Medicine and Anti-Ageing is threatening to file complaints against the Intellectual Property Department if it failed to reject 13 patent applications for items containing cannabis extracts.

“Complaints will be filed with the Central Administrative Court, the Central Intellectual Property and International Trade Court, and the National Anti-Corruption Commission,” said the dean, Panthep Phuaphongphan.

Commerce Minister Sonthirat Sonthijirawong said that he had told ordered the Intellectual Property Department to hold discussions on what to do with those patent applications.
