Satun cave reveals new tree species 'Chalermprakiat'
A new Ylang Ylang species plant was discovered in the Satun province’s Tham Thalu grotto. ( National Research Council of Thailand )

A Chiang Mai University research group has found a new branch in Satun and named it” Chalermprakiat” to mark His Majesty’s 72nd day.

The new types of Ylang Ylang, or Cananga trees, known for its fragrant blossoms, was discovered in a hole in Tham Thalu bunker in La-ngu city of Satun state.

The grotto is a part of the Satun Geopark, which Unesco deemed Thailand’s first world geopark.

The finding was made public on July 5 in the global scientific book Phytotaxa.

The research team was backed by the Office of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, the Thailand Science Research and Innovation ( TSRI), and the Science Research and Innovation Fund.

Tanawat Chaowasku, a researcher who led the group, said the fresh Cananga tree variant may grow up to eight feet high and has cream-coloured plants.

The internal petals are fused at the center and cut at the edges, opening spaces between the flowers that reveal the petals and pistils.

This specific construction, coupled with its rarity– just 15 to 20 specimens have been identified– makes the Chalermprakiat extraordinary, he said.

Therefore, restoration efforts are necessary to stop the plant from extinction, according to Mr. Tanawat, adding that flavonoid and bioactivity studies should be carried out in order to develop it as a medicinal plant.

HM the King envisages a nation of volunteers

HM the King envisages a nation of volunteers

In honor of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej The Great and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit The Queen Mother for their contributions to the Thai nation, His Majesty the King gave instructions to the King’s Private Offices 904 to launch the royally initiated Jit Arsa ( spirit of volunteering ) project.

The project, which is also known as Jit Arsa 904 white par ror, aims to promote country stability, unity, and joy among the citizens. His Majesty the King initially envisioned the charity work being carried out as a common service project in the surrounding Dusit Palace. As a modest beginning, it was established on June 21, 2017, at the Sukhothai School in Bangkok’s Dusit District, and it eventually gradually expanded to include other regions of the nation.

In Sanam Sueapa, a Jit Arsa activities center was established as well. The project is coordinated by the Internal Security Operations Command ( Isoc ). It has set up a local coordination centre in each of the four parts: the Central Plains, Northeast, North and South.

The provincial government, who is typically the mind of the municipal Isoc company, is the provincial governor’s head of the provincial Jit Arsa cooperation center. These local and municipal Jit Arsa centers coordinate actions and encourage more people to apply to work as qualified individuals.

To volunteering with Jit Arsa, you must pass a background check. Participants are required to attend a formal meeting once qualified, where they are presented with a blue cover, a yellow robe, and a Jit Arsa identification cards. In front of a painting of His Majesty the King, the festivities are held.

One is required to strictly adhere to the site’s rules and dedicate themselves to working for the common good once they become a Jit Arsa voluntary.

The Jit Arsa participants may be categorised into three groups, including” Development Volunteers”, whose responsibility is to improve the quality of life of locals through many types of activities such as character and environmental restoration, the progress of public amenities, health, vocations and wellbeing.

” Disaster Relief Participants” help track and provide support relief. The” Ad Hoc Volunteers” who assist with royal events or the King’s visitation on numerous occasions are the last class. They also collaborate with important government departments to facilitate common input, set up pre-event and venue arrangements, and restore normalcy to the venue following the event.

Planting over 1, 000 branches

His Majesty the King sponsored the first round of 384 Jit Arsa individuals ‘ training in March and April 2018 to instruct them to act as position versions for different individuals all over the country.

They were given public information, including tips on how to maintain mental and physical fitness, as well as information on subjects that are pertinent to their volunteer work, such as cooking and woodworking. Additionally, they get to know more about King Rama IX’s job and his theory of validity.

Every time the number of Jit Arsa 904 individuals has increased.

Vachirabenjatas Park became brighter than ever with the golden hues and enthusiastic cheerleaders surrounding an event in July 2019 despite hazy stars. On His 67th day, the volunteers who showed their devotion to the King brought vibrant color to the playground.

They all wore yellow jerseys to join in the” We do good by brain” tree-planting event, which was presided over by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.

Employees from various businesses, the National Council on Social Welfare of Thailand, players and celebrities, as well as individuals from the State Railway of Thailand Vocational School, were just a few examples of the participants. They all agreed that it was important to perform great deeds in honor of His Majesty the King.

Bright star trees, or bit ruang phueng in Thai, were planted in the center of Vachirabenjatas Park because they are the King’s metaphorical tree that is said to bring good fortune and provide safety to the people of the Kingdom.

The area will be covered in the brilliant yellow of the branches ‘ flowers during the King’s birthday party every year because the trees usually bloom in July.

Different parts of the garden were planted with 1, 010 branches donated by associated companies. Particularly in such a large area, planting that some plants is difficult. However, none of the individuals voiced any problems. They dug into the ground and planted the plants, but they did so with a large grin.

Because my companions and I always enjoy volunteering, I immediately signed up for the event, according to an agent from the Don Muang neighborhood office.

” Every day I complete a voluntary project like this, I’m proud of myself for doing something amazing for world.”

People can join

To show that everyone is welcome to take part in performing good deeds, regardless of their conditions,” We do good by heart” became an inclusive event when it started inviting disabled students from the Chaleo-Pavana Memorial School ( Chon Buri’s special education school ) to volunteer, along with their teachers.

As her students helped each other carry the fresh flowers, a Chaleo-Pavana teacher said,” The children were very excited when we told them they may be joining a voluntary action outside the school.”

Although some things may have seemed challenging for the students, they all managed to finish planting their own trees. The students returned with delighted smiles to their teachers.

They may perform more slowly than other volunteers, but they are still content when we tell them they are performing a good deed, the teacher said, grinning proudly.

They will inform their friends about the event when they go to school tomorrow, and they will also be eager to take part in the upcoming volunteer event. I believe that is a very effective way to motivate others to volunteer for the greater good.

The tasks in the event, however, were not just limited to planting trees.

According to Chatramongkol Pinthong, a 24-year-old volunteer who worked at the event’s registration point, those who wanted to take part in the event but preferred to do other things like work at the registration table or distribute snacks were also welcome to do so.

Mr. Chatramongkol claimed that whenever he had the chance, he would volunteer for a cause that would improve society.

” I always tell other people about my volunteer work because I want to inspire them to do the same,” said Mr. Chatramongkol.

” We should be the ones who do good deeds to make our country, which is our home, become more beautiful and liveable,” says one person who says,” If our dream is to see our country, which is our home, become more beautiful and liveable.”

Thailand and China will work together to stop call center scams and stop dark business initiatives led by Chinese people.

On Wednesday, Maris Sangiampongsa, the head of the Chinese Communist Party’s foreign ministry, and Liu Jianchao met in Beijing. In March, Mr. Liu traveled to Thailand to talk about global connections.

Mr Maris took the standard journey, which ran from Monday to Wednesday, at the offer of China’s Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi, to following up on Thai-China assistance.

Prior to their 50th anniversary of cooperation in 2015, Thailand and China maintained tight political relations with each other.

According to Mr. Maris, officials at the conference discussed participation in a variety of fields, including hospitality and national security. Cooperation in suppressing legal aspects, such as murder cartels and cocaine, is one of them, he said.

He added that Thai members also suggested the possibility of reducing air pollution under the Mekong-Lancang Cooperation framework.

The plan received positive feedback from the Taiwanese members, said Mr Maris, adding that they also supported the eight-dimension” Burn Thailand” laws of Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin.

Mr. Maris claimed that the Chinese delegations made mention of the need to promote some megaprojects, including those involving high-speed trains, manufacturing of electric vehicles, and the digital economy.

Thai durian’s export value to China was more than 4 billion yuan ( 20 billion baht ) in the previous year.

The implementation of the Thai-China high-speed railway is anticipated to boost trade between the two nations.

According to Mr Maris, the Taiwanese members said they were also impressed with a statement by Pheu Thai head Paetongtarn Shinawatra, given during the Inter-Party Brics Forum in Vladivostok, Russia, next month.

Thailand was among 14 countries that submitted their application to join the international organisation union Rs ( Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the United Arab Emirates ) this time.

Ms. Paetongtarn spoke at the community in support of Thailand’s account, highlighting the significance of the accents of smaller and less developed countries in the global political landscape.

Mr. Maris explained that the Chinese government had hoped Ms. Paetongtarn may enter the Brics mountain in the future.

Mr. Maris claimed that his visit was the result of the close-knit bonds between the two nations, and that his diplomacy may aid in this endeavor.

New route to help avoid conflict zone

New route to help avoid conflict zone

To prevent transportation issues from armed conflicts along property roads, a cross-border sea shipping route between Ranong in Thailand and Koh Song and Yangon in Myanmar was recently established.

The Myanmar-Thai Regional Border Committee, according to a cause, agreed on June 29 to establish a seafaring link connecting Thailand’s Ranong Port to Koh Song and Yangon ships in Myanmar.

The new course kicked off with an American cargo fleet, MV Beypore Sultan, departing from Ahlon Port in Yangon on Monday, heading to Koh Song Port in Tanintharyi.

Before returning to Yangon, the ship may continue to pile goods to Thailand’s Ranong Port before returning to Yangon.

At Koh Song Port, Myanmar has established gates and customs certification.

This tour marks the opening of a new sea way connecting Myanmar and Thailand. It is a part of the effort to prevent travel issues on land-based transportation routes, particularly those affected by the growing conflict between Myanmar troops and their People’s Liberation Army ( PDF) allies.

Among the damaged routes are the Eastern Highway 1 ( Yes 1 )– a key area between Myawaddy and Kawkareik, which has been blocked by the PDF since December, Road AH 123, which has been seriously affected by conflicts, and a border checkpoint at Payathonzu, which is the under the control of a Karen resistance group.

Another land-based routes, such as Highways AH 1 and Road 1018, have been covered in mud and corroded by rain, making it nearly impossible for cars to travel along them.
