mystery of the disappearing film festival

hua hin, THAILAND This time last year Hua Hin was gearing itself up to welcome the great and good of the film world to the first Hua Hin International Film Festival, with the expectation that this would become an annual event, and a sign of the higher profile the town was getting. However, so far this year there is absolutely no sign of the festival being repeated, with both the dedicated website ( and the Facebook page having no information since last year’s event and emails to the organisers bouncing back. National daily newspaper The Nation made a very brief mention of a 2013 festival in a look ahead to Thai films for the coming year but this appears to be more of an assumption than firm information. It will be a great shame if another high profile event disappears from the calendar, as the Jazz Festival did last year and possibly permanently, especially at a time when Hua Hin is experiencing expansion and improvements at a rate of knots. The area needs keynote festivals and events to broaden it’s appeal and to encourage visitors, as well as to provide variety for those that live here. It may be that the festival will take place at a different time than last year, but given the publicity drive that accompanied the first one and the lack of any mention anywhere for a follow up, the fear is that this has indeed gone with the wind..

Donahey knows his onions...” (Charles Talbut) Onions was an editor of the Oxford Other phrases that refer to knowing - ‘know the ropes’ English Dictionary from 1895 and continued to write (see below), ‘doesn’t know shit from Shinola’ etc. reference works throughout a long and distinguished allude to specific items as the focus of the knowledge. career. His last work was The Oxford Dictionary of Other 1920s variants of ‘know your onions’ are ‘know English Etymology, 1966, which was published a year your oil/oats/apples’ etc. The only one that caught on after his death. Someone who knew as much etymology and is still in common use is ‘know your onions’. So, as he did could certainly claim to ‘know my onions’, and why onions? Well, as the citation above asks - why not? it is tempting to assume that this is where the phrase Explanations that relate the phrase to knowledgeable vegetable gardeners, or even to C. T. or S. G. Onions, originated. If the ‘onions’ referred to in the phrase is indeed human are just trying too hard. 1920s America was a breeding rather than vegetable, there is another Mr. Onions that ground for wacky phrases (the bee’s knees being one could be our man.

They looked similar to There is some doubt about the origin of this phrase. real coins and had inscriptions like ‘4 Farthings make 1 It may well have a nautical origin. Sailors had to learn Penny’ or ‘12 Pence make 1 shilling’. We can imagine that which rope raised which sail and also had to learn a ‘knowing your Onions’ might be coined, so to speak, in myriad of knots. There is also a suggestion that it comes from the world of the theatre, where ropes are used to those circumstances. The first known use of ‘know your onions’ in print, in raise scenery etc. the 1920s, tends to argue against either of the above men The first citation comes in Richard H. Dana Jr’s Two being involved. While it is true that the phrase originated years before the mast, 1840: “The captain, who had at a time when C. T. Onions had established a reputation, been on the coast before and ‘knew the ropes,’ took the the match between the phrase and his name is just a steering oar” coincidence. ‘Know your onions’ is in fact an American That clearly has a seafaring connection, although it phrase. There are many references to it in print there appears to be using the figurative meaning of the phrase, from the 1920s onward, but none in the UK or elsewhere i.e. ‘the captain was knowledgeable’, but without any until the middle of the century; for example, this from specific allusion to ropes. Harper’s Magazine, March 1922: “Mr. Roberts knows his There are also early citations that come from the theatre. J.

massachusetts, usa Scientist seeks female surrogate in order to make a Neanderthal baby A scientist is hoping to recruit a woman he hopes will be the surrogate to a Neanderthal baby he plans to clone. Professor George Church argued by reintroducing this species we could find cures to certain cancers and HIV. ‘I have already managed to attract enough DNA from fossil bones to reconstruct the DNA of the human species largely extinct,’ he told German magazine Der Spiegel. ‘Now I need an adventurous female human.’ The ‘adventurous female’ would be implanted with a cloned human stem cell that had parts of the Neanderthal genome in it. The process of cloning a Neanderthal would be illegal in a lot of countries, including Britain, but the genetics professor of the Harvard School of Medicine is confident if he is allowed to do so he could be successful. He added: ‘We can clone all kinds of mammals, so it’s very likely that we could clone a human. ‘Why shouldn’t we be able to do so?’ The distinguished professor, who helped create the Human Genome Project, said the cavemen could have been more intelligent than humans and had larger craniums. ‘When the time comes to deal with an epidemic or getting off the planet or whatever, it’s conceivable that their way of thinking could be beneficial,’ he said. ‘They could maybe even create a new neo-Neanderthal culture and become a political force.’ The professor discussed his ideas in his book Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves.

pembrokeshire, uk Tesco: Pranksters dressed as pantomime horse kicked out of store A pair of practical jokers were hoofed out of Tesco after entering a store dressed as a pantomime horse in the wake of the contaminated burger scandal. The prank was staged amid increasing consumer anger over the discovery of horse meat in the supermarket chain’s value beefburgers. Heading through the frozen food section at a store in Bierspool, Pembrokeshire, the pair pretend to be looking for their parents. One of them can be heard screaming: ‘Mum! Daddy! They’ve gone!’ as shocked customers picking up their weekly groceries look on. After sprawling to the floor, the duo are soon told to leave by a security guard who appears less than amused by their antics. The 84-second clip has since gone viral, racking up hundreds of thousands of hits on video-sharing website YouTube. Tesco has also come under fire for a series of PR gaffes on its official Twitter feed this week, responding to one customer’s joke request for Red Rum. It followed this up with an ill-advised ‘hit the hay’ tweet which soon went viral.

horsemeat burgers Some of our readers may not be aware that several UK supermarkets, including Tesco and Lidl, have been found selling beefburgers with horsemeat in them. Cue the jokes... I went to a Tesco café yesterday and ordered a burger. They asked me if I wanted anything on it, and I said: ‘Yes — a fiver each way.’ Does anyone have a tooth pick? I had a Tesco burger last night and there’s still a bit between my teeth. I’ve got some Tesco burgers in the fridge. But . . . THEY’RE OFFFFFFFFF! My doctor told me to watch what I eat, so I went out and bought tickets for the Grand National. I won’t eat Tesco burgers. They may be low in fat, but they have a very high Shergar content.

Can you tell me what you have had tonight?’ ‘Nothing Officer,’ replies the man. ‘Just a burger from Tesco.’ ‘That explains it,’ says the policeman. ‘I knew I could smell Red Rum.’ I bought an ‘award-winning’ Tesco burger. I didn’t realise they meant it had won the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Last night I ate a Tesco burger, an Iceland burger and an Aldi burger to find out which had the best taste. Tesco won by a short head.

ChaAm news The Blue Lagoon Trophy The Blue Lagoon Trophy is a darts match between a team from Cha Am Darts League and a team from Hua Hin Darts League. The first challenge match was played at T-C Restaurant in Cha Am on Saturday 3rd March 2012. It was a fantastic afternoon of darts with 2 well matched teams, a great venue and some excellent food. Dave and Noi were incredible hosts and the venue was very well prepared. While setting up in the morning Dave had to be told to calm down, as he was asking “shall I do this, shall I do that.” We couldn’t have asked for more from a host and a great sponsor for the event, so many thanks to all at T-C.

Hua Hin stormed into a 3-0 lead taking all the mixed doubles matches although Cha Am had chances to win 2 of those matches. During the break for food a Hua Hin player said his team would win the first 2 singles matches and toddle off down the road back to Hua Hin with the trophy. A very subdued Cha Am captain said he would prefer to play all the matches but was dreading a 9-0 defeat. Each singles match was on a knife edge, and with Stuart waiting to clean up at the tail for Hua Hin, Cha Am had to come out on top in each of the next 5 singles matches to claim the 5 points needed for victory. A magnificent fight back ensued with Cha Am indeed winning the next 5 singles matches to claim

a memorable and unlikely victory. The event was held in Hua Hin later last year at Jungle Juice where the home team gained revenge and there were equally good games and hosts; now Cha Am have the chance to recapture the trophy with the next match scheduled for 9th February (see darts page for details). contact us Please direct any enquiries to Darren at the Cha Am Pub (see ad below), or you can of course also contact us direct by email on info@ or any of our other contact methods shown on page 32. Please contact us if you have an event or special offer as we will feature them on this page even if you do not advertise with us.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 Financial experts know that a number of factors are to blame for the downturn, but they won’t be able to shake the hunch that it was all your fault somehow. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Your uniqueness as a human being is threatened when you find a person who enjoys ham just as much as you do. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 Remember: No matter how bad things get, or how hopeless life may seem, you can always go home again and take it out on your family. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 Your marriage will soon erode to the point where you’ll be sorely tempted to turn her in for the reward money.


Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 The stars find that the time has come for you to put away childish things. Yes, that includes your three small children. Gemini May 22 – June 21 If there is more to life than fishing, you don’t want to know what it is. This will help explain your death from malnutrition and dehydration next week. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 You will be shocked to learn that, due to a legal fluke, your longterm houseguest is now your commonlaw wife. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 Try as you might, you will not be able to improve your mediocre putting game. Wow, don’t you have some big problems, you asshole.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 After 14 long years, you will be admitted to the Baseball Hall Of Fame when you finally come up with the $11.50 admission price. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Start childproofing your house now, as a pack of bloodthirsty feral children is headed your way. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Telling the waitress that you could make a better cup of coffee from the sweat on your balls won’t do her any good. Show her how. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 You never thought anything could ever replace sex in your life, but that was before you tried pouring yourself a nice stiff drink, putting on some music, and having sex.

Don’t tell anyone but I live in an area just like Hua Hin used to be 20 or 30 years ago

We have miles and miles of empty beaches. Wherever you live you are surrounded by trees and tropical shrubs and the sea may be at your doorstop or only a few minutes away. Living is peaceful - no traffic jams, condos or pollution. All necessities are here but for special things we have Hua Hin or Chumphon to the North or South.

So why don’t you think of joining us in this little Paradise by buying inexpensive land for a holiday home,weekends or permanent move?

We are Sopha Land and Houses At Suang Luang Beach

backpeddle Lance Armstrong stripped of cancer victory

atlanta, georgia In response to disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong’s admission that he had used performanceenhancing drugs, the American Cancer Society announced today that it had stripped Armstrong of his 1997 victory over cancer, and the 42-year-old would immediately revert to having Stage 3 cancer of the testicles, lungs, and brain. “Mr. Armstrong’s disturbing revelations have disgraced the struggle against cancer,” a statement from the A.C.S. read. “In light of these developments, the American Cancer Society’s board of directors has voted unanimously to strip Mr. Armstrong of his cancer victory. We hope that this action will maintain the integrity of the disease for future cancer sufferers.”

Lance ‘Pinnochio’ Armstrong denies doing absolutely anything

While banning Armstrong for life from competing against cancer was not mentioned, sources inside the A.C.S. say the possibility is “under consideration.” Armstrong, who is alleged to have appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show confessing to his

misdemeanours, is now in fact denying that he ever appeared on the show. He said, “As long as I live, I will deny it. There was absolutely no way I forced people, encouraged people, told people, helped people, facilitated. Absolutely not. One hundred percent.”
