Shahkrit Yamnarm joins UNICEF Thailand to save lives of malnourished children during COVID-19


BANGKOK, 30 August 2021 – Famous Thai actor Shahkrit Yamnarm is fronting a UNICEF campaign to mobilize support for the millions of severely malnourished children worldwide, as the situation has worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a powerful video released on social media and local television channels, Shahkrit appeals to the Thai public to join UNICEF in saving children from dying from severe acute malnutrition. With every 300-baht donation, UNICEF is able to provide 24 sachets of ready-to-use therapeutic food to feed malnourished children. Donors will receive a face mask case for storage as a gift.

“Every second, a child is at risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition,” said Shahkrit. “As a father, I am deeply concerned about these children who are facing this difficult situation and urgently need help especially during COVID-19. You can help save the lives of malnourished children by making a donation, and I urge everyone to lend a helping hand.”

Undernutrition leads to irreversible damage to children’s growth and development and accounts for nearly half of all deaths in children under 5, according to the World Health Organization. Globally, an estimated 2 million children under 5 died from severe acute malnutrition in 2019, and 149 million children under 5 were estimated to be stunted or too short for age while 45 million were estimated to be wasted or too thin for their height in 2020.

The pandemic continues to disrupt all of the systems related to good nutrition across the world, especially in Africa which has seen the sharpest rise in hunger and faces ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. UNICEF estimates that more than 100,000 children in Ethiopia’s northern region of Tigray could suffer life-threatening severe acute malnutrition in the next 12 months, a tenfold increase to normal numbers, and that malnutrition among children under 5 is expected to quadruple in drought-afflicted southern Madagascar.

Joining the campaign are six celebrities and chefs who will share on UNICEF Thailand social media their favourite recipes with legume, which is the main ingredient in ready-to-use therapeutic food for malnutrition. They are Vanessa Race, Friend of UNICEF; Nan Hongwiwat, chef and founder of KRUA.CO; Pruek Sumpantaworaboot, Iron Chef Thailand; Chananchida “Pattie” Pongpetch, junior chef; Pawarit “Mark” Parnichprapai, chef; and Samaphol “Kai” Piyapongsiri, DJ and TV show host.

Channel 7HD will be supporting UNICEF in strengthening awareness of the campaign. Corporate partner supporting the campaign is Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, in celebration of its iconic campaign ‘Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day’. The online shopping platform will provide live airtime for Shahkrit to talk about the situation of malnourished children on Shopee Live on 17 September from 16.00 – 17.00 hrs. Other corporates such as VGI PLC; Bangkok Metro Networks Ltd, Bangkok Expressway and Metro PCL; Golf Channel Thailand (GCT Media Co., Ltd); Tencent Thailand Co., Ltd; and Supatra Real Estate Co., Ltd will be providing media space for the campaign.

Flight attendants are learning to fight back against unruly passengers – just in case #SootinClaimon.Com

Flight attendants are learning to fight back against unruly passengers – just in case


“You want a drink, sir?”

The passenger looked up at the male flight attendant, then slurred a request for five more drinks. The flight attendant refused, causing the drunk traveler to become irate.

He lunged out of his seat toward the flight attendant when an air marshal appeared, pummeling the unruly passenger. The man’s hands were now cuffed behind his back.

This was just a drill. The drunk passenger was from the Federal Air Marshal Service. But the dangerous behavior flight crews are dealing with in the skies today is very real.

In a nondescript office building near LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York, a group of real flight attendants watched the drill in a fake airplane, beginning their four-hour self-defense training run by the Transportation Security Administration. TSA has offered these classes across the country free of charge to flight crew since 2004, but they seem more relevant than ever.

As air travel began to rebound from its pandemic rock-bottom, so has bad passenger behavior. The Federal Aviation Administration has received nearly 4,000 reports of unruly passengers in 2021, an uptick from the 146 total reports received in 2019.

“This is the most dangerous and uncertain time in our entire history,” said Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA.

Nelson says the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the profession for myriad reasons, from the fear of contracting coronavirus to the logistic issues of returning to an industry operating with a staffing shortage.

“Flight attendants are working longer days with shorter nights, wearing masks for 14, 15 hours a day . . . having a harder time getting nutrition throughout the day and charged with keeping everyone safe on the plane,” Nelson said. “Those are just the basics.”

While most flights get from A to B without incident, the new stressors are driving flight attendants to seek out TSA’s voluntary self-defense training.

“I just wanted to make sure that I’m prepared for anything that could happen,” says Katie, a flight attendant attending the training at the Federal Air Marshal Service (F.A.M.S.) New York field office. So she could speak freely, she asked that her last name and employer to be kept private.

During her 17 years working in the industry, Katie was always interested in enrolling in the class, but because it only takes place at a handful of locations across the country, it was difficult to find the right free time in her travel schedule.

During the pandemic, the monthly four-hour classes were put on hiatus until July of this year. When Katie got an email announcing class openings in the New York area, she jumped at the opportunity to attend.

“I’ve been involved in situations before,” she said. “And we have de-escalation scenarios that we try to run through to the best of our abilities, but sometimes it just gets to a level that we need a little extra defense training,” she said.

After watching the pretend scenarios in the simulated airplane, the flight attendants were taken to a room with a padded mat floor to learn how to physically and mentally prepare themselves for aggressive-passenger interactions.

The instructors demonstrated how to stand, move and approach an attacker, as well as fight or defend themselves with their hands, elbows, palms, knees, feet and shins. Some techniques are standard, like a punch to the face. Others are new, like raking an attacker’s face with your nails. The flight attendants wince at the mention of gouging an attacker’s eyes.

“Remember, this guy is attacking you,” the air marshal said, encouraging the class to keep their warrior mind-set.

Katie and the other flight attendants practiced their new techniques on the air marshals, punching bags and B.O.B.s, or “Body Opponent Bags,” life-size dummies.

“I want you to strike through him,” an air marshal told Katie’s group of flight attendants while demonstrating a palm heel strike to a B.O.B. “I want you to take his head off.”

Judith, another flight attendant in attendance who requested to keep her last name and employer private, believes unruly passengers have been an issue for the airline industry for years. It is not just the pandemic triggering the latest violence.

“I think it’s the many layers of stress,” said Judith, who has been a flight attendant for nearly a decade. “There is the stress of getting to the airport, the stress of going through the security, stress of getting up early, stress of traveling, stress of family, traveling with family.”

Stephanie Metzger, a supervisory air marshal in charge who was on-site for the training, said a big part of the class is to build self confidence, as well as give flight crew critical self-defense lessons. The right mind-set is essential for carrying out the defenses.

“This is important training for flight attendants because it prepares them with the basic skills that are needed for them to be able to address unruly passengers on board aircraft,” Metzger said.

Nelson agrees. Taking the class one time is not enough to turn flight attendants into self-defense experts, and it is not going to solve the issue of violence on planes, but “it gives just some basic maneuvers to help better protect yourself from getting hurt,” she said.

The flight attendants finished the class sweating and tired. Despite the serious nature of the course, they ended on a high note, laughing and swapping contact information with the air marshals who encouraged them to return to the class whenever they would like.

Katie hopes she will be able to take refresher courses to keep her new skills fresh in her mind going forward.

“I hope that it doesn’t get to the physical level but more and more these days it has been sort of getting to the physical level,” she said. “I think it’s really important to make sure that you’re prepared for that as well.”

Judith, who had never taken self-defense or martial arts classes before her TSA experience, found the training rewarding albeit conflicting.

“I don’t want to hurt anybody. I never want to use these techniques on a real person,” she said. “But it was surprisingly fun and very gratifying to see how a little technique can really do big changes.”

The return of trading cards #SootinClaimon.Com

The return of trading cards


At the beginning of May, I entered a suburban Target, asked an employee where they stock the trading cards, strolled over to that aisle and was met with a pair of notices – in the byzantine spirit of a D.C. parking sign – explaining how many packs you could buy (one per customer), when youd have to line up for them (Friday at 8 a.m. for undisclosed reasons) and why such restrictions were necessary (these 2.5-by-3.5-inch pieces of cardboard are in super-high demand). “To ensure the safety of all guests and team members,” one of the notices began – and inspired a scoff.

The return of trading cards

But a day after my visit, trading card popularity turned into mania when four people allegedly attacked a man over cards in a Wisconsin Target parking lot; at one point a gun was wielded. A week later, the retailer pulled packs from its shelves nationwide and now offers only online purchases. (A spokesperson for Target said they made the change “out of an abundance of caution.”)

Trading cards, hot in the 1980s and early ’90s before yielding to countless technological advancements, have again become especially coveted, and somewhat surprisingly so. Sure, trends are cyclical – out: skinny jeans; in: mom jeans – but collecting cards seemed like a hobby most of society had moved on from for good. Sports fans could instead control their favorite players in video games or debate the merits of their teams on Twitter. Dynamic technology defeated static paper. It was a blowout.

Humans, though, are collectors at heart. And ironically, technology has contributed to the hobby’s rebirth. Much of the buying and selling today happens on eBay, StockX and Amazon (whose founder, Jeff Bezos, owns The Washington Post). In February, eBay introduced its first “State of Trading Cards” report, announcing a 142% gain in domestic sales – 4 million more cards sold on its website in 2020 than in 2019. That includes the major sports as well as Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering, which were both originally released in the ’90s.

The good times have trickled down to small businesses, too. At House of Cards in Silver Spring, Md. – where seven decades of sports cards are neatly displayed along with bobbleheads, pennants and other memorabilia – business is booming. Asked if sales were up, House of Cards president Bill Huggins responded, “Is a duck’s ass waterproof?”

The shop opened in 1979 (in a different, smaller location) and has endured the whims of an industry that subsisted on a core group of regulars in the recent past.

“Now, I see new customers every single week, and I’m also seeing a much younger group of people coming in here,” says Bryan Theis, who runs the shop day-to-day. “Even high-schoolers, teenagers … they’re buying all these retail boxes and they’re flipping them. They’re making really good money.”

Several high-profile purchases of cards have offered inspiration to average collectors. In January, a 1952 card of New York Yankees legend Mickey Mantle sold at auction for $5.2 million – a record for sports cards. In February, a signed rookie card of Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic went for $4.6 million. You won’t find those in a $9.99 pack from a big-box store, but dreamers read headlines about seven-figure sales and get ideas.

In explaining the growth of the industry, eBay cited an emerging investor class – millionaires diversifying their portfolios with rare memorabilia – as well as “people staying home and finding new ways to spend their time.” Indeed, the pandemic has almost certainly contributed to the trading card renaissance. One “element of collecting has to do with the ability to gain and exercise control, especially in uncontrollable circumstances – which the pandemic was the epitome of,” Holly Schiff, a clinical psychologist who specializes in anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder, told me via email. Sigmund Freud, a prolific collector of art, believed collecting served to impose order in the world.

But the trading card resurgence had been bubbling before the pandemic. At Topps, the standard-bearer for baseball cards since the 1950s, when they were sold with bubble gum, there had been “steady upward growth over the past decade” before the pandemic rush, according to Emily Kless, a communications manager at the company. She attributed the upswing to rekindled interest from people who collected as kids (like me) and the Internet helping products become more accessible – specifically with “case breaks,” which have exploded in popularity.

Here’s how a case break works: A host buys an expensive box, or several boxes, and rounds up a group of buyers to split the cost. The buyers are then assigned teams (Person A gets all the Yankees, Person B all the Orioles and so forth) and they’re sent any corresponding cards pulled by the host. The whole thing is live-streamed so buyers and rubbernecks can watch as some lucky collector takes home a prized “chase” card, which might feature a player’s autograph or even a small piece of their jersey.

Case breaks are just one example of how technology is now providing a communal aspect that keeps the hobby fresh. Reddit forums feature collectors bragging about their bounties. The popular Ringer Podcast Network has a show in which the hosts discuss cards like stocks. YouTube and Instagram streamers unveil their hauls for hundreds.

“With the Internet, it’s entirely possible for people to find connections and links with others who might share what would have been thought of as very obscure or isolated interests,” says Andrew Dillon, a University of Texas professor of information who has researched collecting in general. “And it turns out, well, there is a community of people who share those interests, and now you can actually talk to them. Now you can discuss, share and ultimately trade with them.”

While technology contributed to card collecting becoming cool again, the next frontier is where the cards are the tech. Topps went public in April in a deal valuing the company at $1.3 billion; a week later it launched its first series of digital NFTs, marketing it as “a new era of baseball card collecting.” NFTs, which stands for non-fungible tokens, are digital assets – in this case photos or GIFs of baseball stars.

Dapper Labs- a Canadian company with the tagline “Fun and games on the blockchain” – is the early leader in the sports-card-meets-NFT movement, debuting the online marketplace NBA Top Shot in October 2020 and touting $500 million in sales in its first five months, including a $210,000 purchase of a dunk by LeBron James. Top Shot refers to its products as “moments” rather than cards, and it has gamified the hobby, creating challenges for collectors to achieve.

But unlike in the past, these digital developments may be a complement to America’s cardboard pastime, and many don’t see the physical cards going away anytime soon. “There is really no stopping the trading card industry right now,” Kless says, “and the advancements in technology are a huge part of driving that growth.”

A dazzling view of Bangkok from space


This oblique photograph captures an astronaut’s perspective of Thailand at night as viewed from the International Space Station. The prominent lights of Bangkok — Thailand’s capital and most populous city — are the focal point, with the lights of other cities lining the coast of the Gulf of Thailand.

A dazzling view of Bangkok from space

The dark swath of land in the top left is the Malay Peninsula, which separates the Andaman Sea from the Gulf of Thailand. The darker, forested Tenasserim Hills stand out from the lighter-toned, lower coastal plains to the east.

Bangkok is considered a “primate city”, which is defined as a city twice as large as the next largest in the urban hierarchy of a country and twice as significant economically. Bangkok’s population of more than 10 million is many times greater than that of Chon Buri (population 1.4 million), the next largest.

City lights provide a visual indication of the high population density in and around the city centre.

Laem Chabang is visible along the eastern coast of the Bay of Bangkok. It is the country’s largest deep seaport and sees most of the international shipping reach Thailand.

The green dots sprinkled throughout the Gulf are fishing boats using lights to attract plankton and squid. Fishing is an important industry, as most of Thailand’s consumption of animal protein comes from seafood.

Companies around the Gulf of Thailand are also among the largest foreign suppliers of fish to the United States.

Astronaut photograph ISS064-E-37842 was acquired on February 26, 2021, with a Nikon D5 digital camera using a focal length of 58 millimetres. It is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center.

The image was taken by a member of the Expedition 64 crew. The image has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed.

The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the Nasa/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.

Thailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breeder


Not many people gain income from their hobbies, but Wisit Phumpetch is one of the rare and lucky few. A prominent breeder of Siamese fighting fish, Wisit has managed to turn his casual pastime into a lucrative career.

Thailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breeder

Afish with history

Also known as betta, Siamese fighting fish are a freshwater species native to Southeast Asian countries – Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and of course Thailand.

Fighting fish go back a long way in Thailand, first surfacing during the reign of Rama I (1782-1809). But it wasn’t until the rule of King Rama III (1824-1851) that their fame spread overseas. The third monarch of the House of Chakri gave some fighting fish to Danish zoologist Theodore Cantor, who became the first Western scientist to describe the species. Betta first appeared in the West in the late 1800s, and within decades were popular as ornamental fish.

They remain a symbol of Thainess around the globe, even inspiring the national costume worn by Thai contestant Amanda Obdam during the recent Miss Universe contest.

To learn more about the fish, The Nation Thailand visited Wisit at his farm in Rat Burana, Bangkok.

Thailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederThailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederFrom hobby to lucrative business

Known in the trade as Deen Chevroret, Wisit began breeding fighting fish three years ago after being captivated by their beauty and variety. He explained that today’s ornamental betta are far more beautiful than in his younger days, when the fish were bred purely for fighting, like cockerels or bulls.

His first big success as a breeder came six or seven months after he went full-time. He put a fish he had raised up for auction in an online group. The price started at 1 baht but the bidding eventually soared to THB4,800. “I was very happy with that success, which has inspired me to breed betta to this day,” he said.

Wisit now makes a good living from ornamental fighting fish, selling specimens to both Thai and foreign customers for impressive sums of money.

Thailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederThailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederHigh-priced fighters

He explained that fish with unique and colourful markings fetch the highest prices.

“Low-priced fish are what you see sold in [Bangkok] pet markets such as Chatuchak or Thonburi,” he added.

Away from shops and pet markets, much of the trade in fighting fish happens on social media. However, trading and prices have been subdued since Covid-19 arrived in Thailand – though Wisit said his business was only slightly affected.

Demand from abroad may have helped soften the impact of the virus crisis.

Wisit said most of his foreign customers live in Southeast Asia, namely Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia. But he also receives orders for fish from as far away as Europe and America.

That should come as no surprise since Thailand still produces the best quality betta in the world, he said. And with ornamental fighting fish in high demand, there is room in the market for new players, he added.

The current trend is for specimens with dark pigmentation or dazzling scales.

“The scales shine when they are lit up,” he explained.

Thailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederThailand’s fighting fish still the world champions, says betta breederRaising a fighting fish

The obvious question to ask someone who won success so quickly is how he overcame the challenges of breeding fighting fish. The answer was simple yet surprising: There was no hardship involved, said Wisit, since he loves his work.

Despite his answer, raising fighting fish as a career requires hard work, time and attention. Wisit told us that he worked every day, with only one assistant to share the load. He breeds the fish, then feeds and cares for them until they are large enough for selection.

The most beautiful specimens are exhibited in glass bottles for his online and offline customers. Meanwhile, the lower-grade fish are retained for breeding or sold on for modest prices.

Fortunately, keeping betta as pets is a much easier task than raising them professionally. Wisit explained that fighting fish are a good choice for people who have limited free time.

Despite their short average lifespan of three to five years, betta are a tough species. Owners can leave the fish at home alone for up to five days, as long as they have fresh water and adequate food supplies.

Health workers cheer up country with dance for quarantined village

Video of a humorous performance by four health staff in personal protective suits that helped relieve stress at the Samet Moo 7 community in Buri Ram’s Krasang district went viral on Sunday.

Posted on TikTok by user pupu_pupu555, the clip shows staff from Nong Teng Health Promoting Hospital, encased in white biohazard suits, dancing for the villagers under their care.

The community of 429 people and 206 households was closed on May 16 to contain an outbreak after four residents tested positive.

The health staff said they were surprised their show on Friday (May 21) proved such a hit among residents as they waited for Covid-19 tests.

Tharapong Wongsirilertchon, a public health official at Nong Teng Health Promoting Hospital, said the activity had a positive effect by relieving pressure on people in the quarantined community.

The community-wide quarantine would be lifted in 14 days if no new cases were discovered, he added.
