18 Jun 2013 : Once the Myanmar women finished applying tanaka powder on the cheeks of some young Turkish girls, they began to laugh among themselves at the new, unusual look. More boys and girls stood behind, waiting for their turn to get the new look. And still more were waiting in another line nearby to try on Mongolia's national costume.
EDUCATION Govt to merge 2,290 small schools
31 May 2013 : A least 2,290 small schools will be merged with larger ones, according to Education Ministry plans for managing schools with fewer than 60 students.
TEACHER - 2 - Teacher
29 Jun 2010 : If students are asked what they want to do in class, invariably they will suggest playing games, listening to music and watching movies.
29 Jun 2010 : It is expected that the world will encounter an energy crisis in the very near future. With the innovation of energy-efficient vehicles, the crisis might be eased somewhat.
IN MY OPINION
29 Jun 2010 : The idea of having a contract between teachers and institutions is that both parties should benefit from the security it provides. Recent contract negotiations at my university have shed some light on the lack of understanding by Thai employers of the plight of foreigners teaching in Thailand.
29 Jun 2010 : A record number of students from Bangkok Patana School (BPS) completed the arduous International Award Association Gold Award programme this year.
TEACHING WITH HEART
29 Jun 2010 : A new idea is the product of both "creativity" and "critical thinking". The two concepts are inextricably intertwined. If any one of these ingredients is applied in isolation, an idea may be created, but it perhaps would remain unworkable.
THE CHINGCHOK HUNTER
29 Jun 2010 : There is no doubt that humans are incredible designers, architects and builders. From the Taj Mahal to the new Burj Khalifa, to the Airbus A380 to nuclear submarines, Homo sapiens are incredible. But many of our technologies were either inspired by or simply stolen from animals. In many circumstances, animals are aeons ahead of us in the building and design world.
THE WRITE STUFF!
29 Jun 2010 : An appositive is a word or group of words that adds information to a sentence by renaming nouns - defining or summarising them. Appositives are an excellent tool to introduce sentence variety, giving writers more ways to combine information and embed it in a sentence.
28 Jun 2010 : After receiving such warm praise for Toy & Comic Expo Asia 2010 in the provinces, the Software Industry Promotion Agency (Sipa) is inviting interested persons to the last leg of the series, to be held at Dhurakij Pundit University, Bangkok, from July 2 to 9. The previous workshops in Chiang Mai, Phuket, Khon Kaen and Nakhon Ratchasima were attended by many students and entrepreneurs on animation and comic character copyrights.
27 Jun 2010 : There's barely a week to go before returning to Thailand, and I'm pulling out all stops to cram in as much as I can into my time left here in the United States. One of those activities includes a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas.
20 Jun 2010 : I am not a bus person. I do trains, planes, and people movers with ease and enthusiasm, but buses arouse the dark silhouette of despair that sleeps fitfully in my stomach, waking to attention the moment my backside hits the bus seat. I don't go around advertising this fact; the last time I casually mentioned it was in Sydney trying to find a way to get from Bondi to the casino.
