Protect us from greed, AmenThe Sangha Supreme Council (SSC)'s decision to regulate the leasing of land or buildings owned by temples to prevent the misuse of monastic property is commendable, at least in principle. According to Mr Sipbaworn, every request to lease land, buildings or the construction of buildings on temple land will first have to be vetted by NOB's central budget committee and then approved by the SSC before the contract can be signed. This rule aims to do away with the practice of lessees sub-leasing temple land or reaping profits from the buildings they put up. The NOB deputy spokesman said this rule will also prevent individuals from using temple property to engage in illegal or improper activities. The agencies should also take into consideration the social context of regulating temple land and nurturing harmonious coexistence between temples and old communities.

As we get older due to arthritis, tightened ligaments and losing muscle mass, we will lose club head speed and raw power therefore, distance is compromised.

Other parties can grill Prawit, but at their own risk: ChalermPheu Thai Party heavyweight Chalerm Ubamrung says other opposition parties can censure Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwon in the upcoming no-confidence debate if they want, but it will be at their own risk. He said the main opposition party, Pheu Thai, has decided not to grill Gen Prawit because the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) had cleared Gen Prawit of concealing assets in the luxury watch scandal, and there is no evidence in relation to other alleged misconduct or wrongdoing. "'We will not object if other opposition parties find fresh evidence and want to grill him [Gen Prawit]. You can be in trouble if the NACC sues you for libel," warned Mr Chalerm, who is in charge of Pheu Thai Party's special affairs committee.
