"We have had enough of them getting mired in corruption and filling their pockets and treating us as fools.''

Today, more than one billion people will celebrate Earth Day in more than 190 countries. So the need for action is high, and this action will primarily have to take place at the national level.

With the private sector, knowledge institutions, academia, and of course the public sector.
Financial analysts recommend high-yield savings accounts over money market accounts because of higher returns, less risk and more liquidity. High-yield savings accounts are the best place for individuals to keep an emergency fund and gain a little interest in the process. Many high-yield savings accounts offer interest of 1.50%, compared with 1.60% offered by some fixed deposits accounts. "People should shun money market funds and shift to high-yield savings accounts because of better returns and deposit protection," Mr Picha said. Retirees or anyone at least aged 60 searching for attractive savings account returns may want to try GH Bank's Chao Sao Savings.
PONGPHAT WONGYALATourism operators have urged the government to broaden the tourism tax break scheme to cover more smaller-scale operators. "The authorities, therefore, should speed up measures to bring these small operators into the tax system." Under the tax measure, individual travellers who spend on tourism services for either accommodation or dining can use their receipts to claim a tax deduction of up to 15,000 baht. Meanwhile, Yuthasak Supasorn, governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, said the reinstatement of the tax rebate will help promote local tourism to grow continuously, especially during the low season. "More importantly, the system remains in place to help accelerate local tourism."
Prof Dweck introduced many general readers to the concept of the growth mindset and the fixed mindset. An outward mindset sees other people as people, and their goals as part of the collective goal, while someone with an inward mindset sees others as obstacles to achieving their own goals. We all have positive and negative qualities in us, but it is inevitable that we aim to shift toward a more positive mindset. Learning isn’t always easy and as you follow the path toward success, you’ll realise that failure is inevitable. To bring out your learning potential, reskill and transform yourself and achieve new heights of success, you must first begin with your mindset.
Pol Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn, left, then Immigration Bureau commissioner, speaks at a press conference in Bangkok in April. Such a remark from a deputy prime minister in charge of security affairs is disappointing. But in the end, it seems no one knows the real truth about Pol Lt Gen Surachate's sudden downfall except, perhaps, the man himself or his boss, who won't talk. More importantly, he was known to be closely connected with, and even a protege of, Deputy Prime Minister Prawit. Pol Lt Gen Surachate deserves a fair investigation and the chance to tell his side of the story.

Even as the US and China seem headed toward a truce on trade, their rivalry is heating up in other areas. That's a mistake -- not because China isn't trying to spy on the US, but precisely because it is. The use of overseas Chinese student associations to engage in influence operations (principally targeting Chinese students themselves) is well documented. Inevitably, some Chinese citizens in foreign countries will be spies -- and likely more in the US, China's most important rival, than anywhere else. The fact that the US and China are strategic competitors shouldn't cause Washington to overreact to China's attempts to improve its covert knowledge.
