Vaccines Linked to Cancer

Vaccines have been reported to contain glyphosphate-a proven carcinogenBaby receiving his scheduled vaccine

A research scientist, Dr. Samsel, has conducted experiments on big name pharmaceutical vaccines and found that they all contain traces of a chemical compound, glyphosphate, otherwise found in herbicides and which is a key component in agribusiness giant Monsanto flagship herbicide product, Roundup.

On studying experiments conducted by Monsanto, Samsel found that the sealed toxicology reports indicated that glyphophate stimulated tumor growth in animals. According to ActivistPost, Monsanto and regulators had known the cancerous effects of glyphosphate for over 4 decades but said nothing.

Pharmaceutical companies found to have alarming amounts of glyphosphate in their vaccines are Merck and GlaxoSmithKline.

Equal Rights to Child Custody for Missouri Man

The state of Missouri passed a new child custody law which gives the parents equal rights to child custodyfathers-day-822550_960_720

A new law was passed in Missouri on Friday by Governor Jay Nixon and championed by State representative Kathy Swan.

The new shared-parenting law aims to equalize the amount of time parents spend with their children. Swan, in her address to the legislative assembly, spoke of the vast disparity between the duration of time children spent with their dads in comparison to their mothers.

On the other hand, Thailand Child Custody law does not favor women over men in custody decisions according to Thai attorney, Jiraporn Thongphong.  However, in practice women are often found more suitable in custody decisions due to the men’s full time work schedule.

Chinese Uniqlo Sex Tape Couple Arrested

A video going viral on social media is a fast track ticket to increased brand value, and fashion store Uniqlo are experiencing a surge in visitors to its Beijing branch, reports the Guardian.

The reason for the sudden popularity?

A couple chose this unlikely backdrop to make a sex tape, and the video has since become an online sensation.

But was this just your average overly amorous (and exhibitionist) couple? Or perhaps a publicity stunt orchestrated by Uniqlo head office?

Uniqlo have denied any involvement in the incident despite police suggestion that this may have been a controversial marketing stunt. Deny it they surely must – they currently face a possible license revoke and fines from 200,000 to 1 million yuan.

Chinese authorities are outraged and are acting accordingly.

“Both the man and the women in the video are in the wrong,” Liu Ning, a Chinese lawyer, told Beijing TV.

Thailand Lawyers, Chaninat and Leeds have decades of experience in successfully handling prenuptial agreements, both in Thailand and internationally.

“Fitting rooms provide some level of privacy but they are still public places. This kind of behaviour in a public place is inappropriate and could even violate public security management regulations.”

Five people have been arrested in connection with the incident, including the couple featured in the video, who have not been named.

The store has since become an unlikely attraction, with  locals and tourists alike flocking to to take selfies at the scene of the now infamous crime.

Whether this was a publicity stunt or not, Uniqlo have no doubt enjoyed a sudden spike in their sales figures this month.

The group of hackers, who call themselves ‘The Impact Team’ threaten to leak customers personal information, if the site is not taken down permanently.  The leaking of information will mean considerable embarrassment for the 37 million worldwide subscribers to the Toronto based site, according to internet security expert Bryan Krebs.

Thailand Family attorneys, Chaninat and Leeds have decades of experience in successfully handling divorce and other family issues Thailand between Thai’s and Internationals.

Ashley Madison, whose slogan is “Life is short. Have an affair,” aims to make it easy for married individuals to anonymously find an adulterous partner. The site is valued at over $1 billion.

The Impact Team are angry that the site – valued at over $1, claims that users can permanently delete their profiles and records for a fee of $19 — however, The Impact Team claim that this data is never actually removed from the records.

They write:

“Full Delete netted ALM $1.7mm in revenue in 2014. It’s also a complete lie […] Users almost always pay with credit card; their purchase details are not removed as promised, and include real name and address, which is of course the most important information the users want removed.”

The hacking group is demanding the site be taken offline, or else they will:

“…release all customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses, and employee documents and emails”

Avid Life Media, the owners of Ashley Madison, released a statement saying they are working to take down information that had already been leaked.

The Florida Democrat claims to have been unaware of his wife’s original marriage, from which she secretly undertook divorce proceedings during the first four years of her marriage to Grayson. He is now refusing alimony payments.
According to the filing: “Unbeknownst to Mr. Grayson, Ms. Grayson was married and remained married to another man… up to and after the parties conducted an apparent marriage ceremony on April 28, 1990.”
Divorce proceedings began after Lolita Grayson accused her husband physical assault – an allegation he denies. Following this accusation, the congressman released a video shot by one of his aides, which he says shows Lolita to be the aggressor.
Grayson is not only avoiding the division of assets, but is also making moves to take full custody of their four minor children, and is seeking $15,000 reimbursement for “all the money and property she has received” during their 24 year marriage.

 

Thailand divorce lawyers Chaninat and Leeds, are a team of highly qualified Thai and international divorce attorneys.

 

As well as describing Lolita as “a gold-digger” he has also accused her of defamation, libel, slander and abuse of process.
Lolita currently claims to be living off public assistance since Grayson cut financial ties.

Australia Massage Parlor Shut Down for Prostitution Reopened by Judge’s Ruling

The Hornsby Council had reportedly paid a private investigator to collect undercover evidence of prostitution to close the Hornsby Massage Centre.

In addition to being a full-service law firm, Chaninat and Leeds has a team of private investigators in Thailand with decades of detective experience for Thai and international clients.

After a year in court, the judge dismissed the case earlier this month (March 2015), ruling that the council’s evidence of sex being sold at the parlor “fell short” of the legal definition of “brothel,” which is more than one prostitute providing services, reports SMH.

The premier from the court’s jurisdiction, Mike Baird, reportedly said he would request a “full parliamentary inquiry” into the regulation of brothels across the state, because “he wanted to get it right,” according to SMH.

Do Thai People Love Their Dogs?

Thai people love their pets. Many Thais even dress and pamper their dogs as if they are children.


Most developing and developed countries will have dog catchers to go around collecting street dogs and putting them in cages and even euthanize them putting them to sleep. In Thailand, dogs without homes live mostly peacefully on the streets and are usually fed by the non-owners in the areas and they are also attended to in Thai temples by monks but they are not normally put to sleep. The general view of Thai people is that putting stray dogs to sleep is far crueler than letting them live on the streets or in a Thai Buddhist temple as strays.

Dog accessory shops that sell dog clothes are all over Bangkok and there are even dog hotels just like one in Chongnonsee called Doggiedoo that caters recreational activities such as swimming pool, dog grooming, and dog training.

The affection of Thais for dogs extends to even providing handicapped dogs with wheelchairs for mobility. The disabled dog on wheels in a You Tube video looks in many ways just the same as dogs that are fully capable.

Owning a Dog in Thailand

Thailand is generally a pet-friendly place but for expat families renting condos or apartments in Bangkok, having a dog is something that must be clear with landlords. As a general rule, condos and apartments will not take dogs of any kind. Practically, expat dog owners are likely to rent detached houses with big back yards in the outskirts of the city, conducive to dogs especially large breed dogs.

Thai-western families relocating back to Thailand with their dogs will need to acquire Identity and Health Certificate which state the dog’s age, breed, sex, distinct markings, name and address of owner or kennel, should be filled out and signed by a registered Vet from the originating country before arriving to Bangkok as per instruction by the Agricultural Regulatory Division and the Department of Livestock Development.

Apart from the documents, the dogs will need to be vaccinated with rabies vaccines – 15 days before departure, Leptospirosis, Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus – 21 days before departure and vaccine for Kennel cough if the dog has been living in a kennel prior to the relocation. The Vaccination Certificates must be presented upon arrival and Thai regulations also direct dogs brought to Bangkok should be quarantined for at least 30 days for further testing and observation for possible diseases.

Thai Teen Phony Fashion


Korean fashion has been the flavor of the month. Previously, trendy Thai teens sported fake braces.

Prickly glue-on eyelashes popular among Korean divas also inspired the phony eyelashes sprinkled with glitters among Thai teens. And there’s cosmetic contact lens called “Big Eye” in Thailand that offers girls’ pikachu – sized fantasy eyes which suggest teeny cuteness. “Big Eye” contact lenses make the pupils look like large black saucers similar to Japanese anime comics like Pikachu, the big eyed animated character in Pokémon creatures from Japan Pokémon media franchise collection.

But with each new Korean fashion craze comes Thai government official warnings that the new craze may blind, disfigure or even life threatening. Some Thai authorities have also cast Korean fashion invasion to Thai market as overtly sexual, superficial and a threat to Thai culture. “Big Eye” contact lenses have been linked to eye infections, injuries and the risk of blindness.

 Real or phony, teens will be teens and they will always be hip so it is always a good idea for parents to keep up with the trend and get familiar with the latest teen fashion trends.

 

Burmese Migrants, Pregnancies and Abortions


Burma is in the news for its increasing openness with regard to politics and business issues. But what about human rights for the masses? Burma, along with Thailand and Southeast Asia as a whole, have a very restrictive policies with regard to abortion rights. These anti-abortion laws in the country of Burmese workers have had a devastating effect.

Since 2002 a large increase in Burmese immigrants has entered Thailand to escape many human rights violations by the military regime. However, Burmese families working in Thailand cannot obtain Thai citizenship, even for their children who are born in Thailand.

In 2002, the Thai Labor Ministry issued a regulation stating that female foreign workers would be given a medical checkup and those found to be pregnant would not have their licenses to work in Thailand renewed. While this regulation was later reversed following protests from human rights groups, many women report that they continue to be dismissed by their employers if they become pregnant. The practical result of these policies has led, some argue, to an increase in abortions.

Abortion is actually illegal in both Thailand and Burma according to Thailand Lawyers. Nevertheless, many women, in the absence of qualified medical assistance resort to traditional methods to induce abortions which can seriously damage their health.  In Thailand, abortion is only legal if the pregnancy threatens the life of the woman and pregnancies that resulted from rape, according to Thailand Criminal Attorneys.

If anything, unwanted pregnancies and abortions have significant impacts to families as it can lead to divorce in Thailand and many personal problems.
