marine life threatened by flood waters as they enter the gulf
hua hin, THAILAND One of the things that Hua Hin and the Gulf of Thailand coastline is famed for is the quality and availability of fresh seafood and shellfish here, but experts are now warning that this too may be under threat from the all pervasive flood waters that have been devastating much of the country. Fish and shellfish farmers on the Gulf of Thailand coast have been warned by Thai authorities to protect their stocks as an estimated 10 billion cubic metres of water flow into the gulf, massively diluting the salt water. Environmental campaigners are also warning that pollutants in the floodwaters from agriculture and industry could have a longer-term impact - and may even enter the food chain. “The problem is the salinity in the upper Gulf of Thailand will be reduced as it receives the fresh water - a lot of fresh water,” said Pramot Sojisuporn, Assistant Professor at the Department of Marine Science at Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University. He added that “The fresh water will not affect the fish (so badly) but it will affect organisms that stay in the mud, so for mussels, clams, if the water is fresh for over two months, they will die.” Pramot said the deluge of floodwaters could mean salt levels fall from the usual level of around 32 parts per thousand to around two parts per thousand, and in the inner gulf the water will be like fresh water. A team from Chulalongkorn University will begin testing in the Gulf next week in an effort to predict how the fresh water will disperse and how far it will spread. Pramot said the northeast monsoon would most likely spread the waters to the west of the gulf, some southern provinces and possibly to Hua Hin.

Do you wonder why we say certain things, or what they really mean? Each week we will examine a different word or phrase and tell you how it came about. This week it is.. Jack of all trades A man who can turn his hand to many things. With any phrase that includes a name, it’s natural to consider whether its the name of a real person. In this case, as was the case with many other literary Jacks Jack the Lad, Jack Robinson, Jack Sprat, Jack Horner, Jack Frost, etc, Jack of all trades was a generic term rather than a living and breathing individual. In fact, the very long list of terms that include ‘Jack’ exceeds that of any other name in English and this reflects the fact that, as a derivative of the common name ‘John’, ‘Jack’ has been used just to mean ‘the common man’. This usage dates back to the 14th century and an example is found in John Gower’s Middle English poem Confessio Amantis, 1390: Therwhile he hath his fulle packe, They seie, ‘A good felawe is Jacke’. We now use ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ in a derogatory way. Originally, this wasn’t the case and the label ‘Jack of all trades’ carried no negative connotation, the ‘master of none’ part being added later. Nevertheless, mediaeval Jacks were pretty much at the bottom of the social tree. The OED defines the generic meaning of the name Jack thusly: Jack - A man of the common people; a lad, fellow, chap; especially a low-bred or ill-mannered fellow, a ‘knave’ If 16th century commentators wanted to imply that a person was stretching their talents too thinly they resorted to the disparaging Latin term Johannes factotum (‘Johnny do-it-all’). In 1592, the English writer and member of the literary establishment Robert Greene wrote a pamphlet entitled Groats-worth of Witte. In that he ventured the opinion that a new writer on the scene
was: An upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that supposes he is as well able to bumbast out a blanke verse as the best of you. Beeing an absolute Johannes fac totum, is in his owne conceit the onely Shake-scene in a countrey. Sadly for Greene’s ongoing reputation the ‘Upstart crow’ was William Shakespeare. Various trades were populated by Jacks - lumberjacks, steeplejacks for example, and sailors were Jack-tars. The name Jack was also added to many utilitarian objects which in some way took the place of a lad or man, for example: Smoke-jack (a roasting spit); Jack-plane (a basic carpenter’s plane); Jack-screw (a lifting winch); Jack-frame (a carpenter’s sawing horse); Boot-jack (for pulling off boots); Jack-engine (a miner’s winch); Jackfile (a coarse file). There can’t have been any trades in the Middle Ages that didn’t make use of a jack of some sort. ‘Jack of all trades’ entered the language in 1612 when Geffray Minshull wrote of his experiences in prison in Essayes and characters of a prison and prisoners: Some broken Cittizen, who hath plaid Jack of all trades. The ‘master of none’ addition began to be added in the late 18th century. The headmaster of Charterhouse School, Martin Clifford, in a collection of notes on the poems of Dryden, circa 1677 wrote: Your Writings are like a Jack of all Trades Shop, they have Variety, but nothing of value. In 1770, the Gentleman’s Magazine offered the opinion that “Jack at all trades, is seldom good at any.” The earliest example found in print of the actual phrase ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’ is in Charles Lucas’s Pharmacomastix, 1785: The very Druggist, who in all other nations in Europe is but Pharmacopola, a mere drug-merchant, is with us, not only a physician and chirurgeon, but also a Galenic and Chemic apothecary; a seller of druggs, medicines, vertices, oils, paints or colours poysons, &c. a Jack of all trades, and in truth, master of none.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 You may not be an expert on which snakes are poisonous and which aren’t, but damn it, you know a cuddly one when you see it. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Mars rising in your sign this week means it’s already November, and you’ve spent the past four months in an alcoholic haze. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 You’ll learn a valuable lesson about sharing this week, proving the effectiveness of hiring a top-rated sharing instructor. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 A shocking revelation will shake you to the core of your being this week, which is odd, because it’s merely the fact that the Doobie Brothers aren’t actual brothers.
Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 Betrayal, treason, and vile calumny will be the order of things next week, which you must admit, sounds a lot cooler than the light office work you’re used to. Gemini May 22 – June 21 Although you always thought you’d be forced to mature when you had children, it turns out you fathered a son years ago and nothing’s changed. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 You’ve always described yourself as someone who hates long goodbyes, but you’ve been standing on the edge of that bridge for three days now. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 While it’s true only God can judge you, you’re making it pretty easy for Him to decide you’re a jackass.
Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 Your deep-seated belief that there is true meaning to the universe will be sorely tested this week, but only by the usual crap that always happens. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Trying to eat healthier and exercise more is admirable, but only when combined with not running blindly into traffic out of sheer depression. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 After pondering what truly separates man from the animals, you’re pretty sure that whatever it is should really be between you and the slavering wolverine. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 You’ll be reduced to a caricature this week, but at least it’s the cool one where you smash through a glass coffee table while coked out of your mind.

barbie One day, a father gets out of work early. Driving on his way home, he suddenly remembers that it’s his daughter’s birthday. He pulls into to a mall with a Toys R Us and goes in to look around. He explains to the first sales person he meets what he needs and she walks with him over to the Barbie Collection in the store. ‘How much for one of those Barbie’s in the display window?’ he asks. The salesperson answers, ‘Which one do you mean, Sir? We have: Work Out Barbie for ฿999, Shopping Barbie for ฿999, Beach Barbie for ฿999, Disco Barbie for ฿999, Ballerina Barbie for ฿999, Astronaut Barbie for ฿999, Skater Barbie for ฿999, and Divorced Barbie for ฿14,999’. The amazed father asks: ‘It’s what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie ฿14,999 and the others only ฿999?’ The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers: ‘Sir..., Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken’s Car, Ken’s House, Ken’s Boat, Ken’s Furniture, Ken’s Computer, One of Ken’s Friends, and a Key Chain made with Ken’s Balls!’ drinking Last night I was doing 80 in a 30 area and was swerving all over the road when I was pulled over by the police. “Excuse me, sir. Have you been drinking?” “Why? Is there a fat bird in my car?” Needless to say, we high fived and I got let off with a warning.

Suddenly it hit me...what does ternative mean?!? politically correct Recently I received a warning about the use of the term, “towel heads” A politically incorrect term. Please note, we all need to be more sensitive in our choice of words. I have been informed that the Islamic terrorists who hate our guts and want to kill us do not like to be called “Towel Heads” since the item they wear on their heads is not a towel but actually a small, folded sheet. Therefore, from this point forward, please refer to them as “Little Sheet Heads.” Thank You for your support and compliance on this delicate matter. asteroid An asteroid has narrowly missed the Earth by 201,000 miles.

Jiangxi, china Entertainer forces poisonous snakes through his nose and out of his mouth Liu Fei pulls a snake through his nose and then out of his mouth - and survives to perform another day. Fei, from east Chinaâ€™s Jiangxi Province, has been performing the death-defying act for the past 30 years - what a charmer. Sometimes, when he feels like it, the 53-year-old will even use two 3ft snakes instead of one. It hasnâ€™t all been smooth sailing for the snake swallower though - Fei has had several close calls with his wriggly friends, the most serious being when he swallowed one accidentally. Luckily for him, the serpent died in his stomach before it could cause
any damage. He does live a charmed life it seems.
suffolk, england Wine packaged in paper bottles Swigging plonk out of a paper bag is a habit usually confined to tramps, but a British company hopes to buck that trend - by selling the worldâ€™s first paper bottle of wine. GreenBottle developed the environmentally-friendly packaging to save conscientious customers a trip to the bottle bank. The bottle works by combining a paper outer with a thin plastic lining to keep the wine fresh, and was the brainchild of Suffolk inventor Martin Myerscough following a chance conversation with a waste tip supervisor about the growing problem of plastic bottle waste.

Fringe Festival – Phra Lor. Saturday, 19th November 2011, 7.30 pm at the Vic Hua Hin. Phra Lor is an epic love story, written in poetic verse by one of the kings during Thailand’s Ayudhya period.

Over the centuries there have been many songs composed using the poetry from this book as lyrics; and they have touched the nation’s heart deeply. This production, with a new interpretation, features a modern generation of artists playing both Thai and Western musical instruments. This version was taken on tour through the U.S. and Canada in 2011. Tickets for 900, 700 and 500 Baht (students 50% discount) are available at Vic Hua Hin: 032-827-814 to 815.

Featured Game Sunday, 20 November 2011 premier league Chelsea v Liverpool, 23:00 Stamford Bridge, London Quite a test for both these teams who look as though they will be battling it out for the 3rd, 4th and 5th places along with Arsenal. Chelsea have been strong at home for many seasons, while Liverpool’s away form has generally been good. The return to fitness of Carragher and Gerrard may be a mixed blessing for Dalglish, as the former could well be undone by the pace of the Chelsea attack, while Gerrard does not look like the player of old. Tough, low scoring game, and a win for the home side.
bah! Humbug newcastle, england Newcastle United football club have taken an important step towards complete laughing-stock status by renaming their stadium the ‘Mike Ashley Plaything Arena’. The move is said to be a temporary measure whilst owner Mike Ashley seeks businesses willing to pay to have their name pointed at by fifty thousand angry Geordies every other week. Ashley told reporters, “The Mike Ashley Plaything Arena offers businesses a unique opportunity to annoy hundreds of thousands of north-east residents.” “Plastering your name all over something they consider to be iconic will ensure they all know exactly who you are. Trust me, I know this better than anyone.” Club officials have also announced
Newcastle United rename stadium the ‘Mike Ashley Plaything Arena’
Above: Geordie legend, Alan Shearer, sucks... on a humbug as he ponders the stadium name
that fan group the ‘Toon Army’ are the subject of another exciting sponsorship opportunity, but will be renamed the ‘Mike Ashley Kiddlywinks’ until a sponsor is found.
London Bar and guesthouse
“This is the perfect opportunity to have your brand name carried to other football clubs around the country by thousands of intimidating overweight topless men in their forties.” Though no paying sponsor has yet been found for the stadium, early reports suggest that Sunderland fans are having a whip round to call it the “Cockney Mafia Laughing Stock Stadium” Sunderland season-ticker holder Simon Williams told us, “We’ve talked about it, and if they think that is too polite then we’ll settle for ‘Shower of Shite Fields’. Front runners for the stadium sponsorship are currently Maxons Black and White Humbugs, and the online business solutions expert www.barcodes.co.uk.
