The girl quotes all kinds of noble motives for her choice, but one has to wonder, deep down, maybe at some subconcious level, what she's really going for here; reminds me of A Streetcar Named Desire - she's Stellla, he's Stanley.
We all welcome attempts to restrict the illegal wildlfe trade, but one has to wonder whether increased funding might just be the real motive here. The link between wildlife and the recent pandemic seems a bit tenuous to me. To be frank, I find experimentation on viruses in labs, especially gain of function research, combined with human fallibility, a lot more scary than anything that can occur naturally by interaction between humans and wildlife.
Well well well.
Kudos for Postecoglou for doubling down on his tactics away to City, playing the high line. Could have gone either way, a draw a fair result. Spurs genuine title challengers.
Chelsea a tad lucky against the Seagulls with their non-penalty given. Ridiculous VAR. Suicidal tactics from Poch playing four center backs against Brighton’s width. Fatigue a factor in that result. I still don’t rate Chelsea much.
Has anyone told the Thai government that there is a global slow down, that several major economies are struggling, ie China, Japan, Germany, the USA and the list goes on. Currently there are 2 substantial conflicts taking place and the Covid scam is not long behind us. Travel costs have escalated since the covid scam and Thailand is no longer a budget destination despite its global status. Corruption within the country is rife, there are many ripoffs which mostly go unchallenged by the government, crime is noticeably on the rise and the authorities do little to clean up the beaches and enforce common laws. Riding a scooter is becoming more & more dangerous due to the local driving standards and again no input by the government to rectify this. Tourists in numbers have been coming to Thailand since the seventies yet how many tourist destinations have clean beaches and public amenities like toilets, waste disposal bins, tourist information centres and so on. The taxis are a rip off, doubling pricing on venues and the eagerness for many local operators to gouge the Farang whenever possible is a detraction for tourists.
This is a major concern and I think some degree of complacency has set in over HIV, especially compared with 20 or so years ago. The up and coming generation are at risk because they haven’t had the principles of prevention impressed upon them in the way the generation before did.
The more awareness raised, the better.
