    A man with tattoos went to get the Covid-19 vaccine but got frightened of the tiny needle and threatened nurses around him. He stated to them “if it hurts I will punch you”. Sanook News Team reported in Phetchabun Province of a Facebook post that went viral. The Facebook user Kwandao Trisun posted a video that captured the incident. The vaccine location was in Wat Ban Rai temple in the main city of Phetchabun. The video showed many nurses standing around a man with many tattoos. The man had signed a consent form to get vaccinated but when his turn came he clearly was afraid. 

     

     

    The nurses helped hold the man and then he threatened them with a fist showing what he would do. Nurses and relatives came to help hold the man down so he would stay still. He continued to struggle and resisted those who were holding him down. It didn’t take long to give him the shot and as soon as the needle left his arm the man stated “**** I thought it would hurt”. The Facebook user is a nurse who captioned the video “please don’t punch me, feel sorry for me hahaha sometimes I cannot laugh, I was afraid he would really punch me”. 

     

     

    Kwandao revealed to Sanook that the man was vaccinated accordingly with the local health office on 24 November 2021. While trying to vaccinate the man he became scared and was going to run away. Relatives nearby came to help hold him down. This is when he threatened the nurses who decided to let go of the man. Kwandao is confident of her needle skills so she tried again. After the shot was given, the man calmed down and returned to normal. The nurse reveals this is not the first time a patient has threatened her. But she admits he was violent but had already signed the consent form and his intention was to get vaccinated so they continued with the original plan.

    An engineer has been arrested for selling pirated movies and adult videos worth a total of 21 Million THB. Police Lieutenant General Jirapat Puridej and Police Major General Puttidej Bunkrapue gave orders to related officials from the Economic Crime Suppression Division (ECD). ECD arrested Sarayut 40-year-old and Nanthapa 42-year-old. The suspects were arrested in a home located in Bangkok Noi District in Bangkok. Evidence included 139,500 DVD/Blu-ray disks, 1,200 adult video DVDs, 8 computers, 66 DVD and Blu-ray writers, and 18 printers. Together the evidence is worth more than 21 Million THB.

    Investigation started when officials discovered the website Blurayman.com that sells a large selection of DVDs and Blu-ray discs. The website has been selling online with Thai and international movies including adult videos. Officials then discovered where the website was operating from, a home on Charansanitwong Road. A search warrant was issued leading to the arrest. The home is used as a major base where all the pirated information was stored before writing onto the discs. Sarayut admitted he graduated from Computer Engineering and knows how to make websites. He made the website and then downloads the movie files from torrent websites. He would then write the files onto the discs. 

     

     

    The website also generated revenue from ads. The suspect further reveals the money is transferred into 5 different bank accounts in another person’s name. The accounts are purchased off other persons. He has been doing this for 5 years and sells 5,000-6,000 discs per day at a price of 60-170 THB. The website makes around 3 Million THB a month. Nanthapa is an employee who works as an admin responsible for taking orders and delivering the products. The suspects have been delivered to the ECD waiting for prosecution.

    A Loy Krathong horror story that took place in Mae Sot District, Tak Province. The local police received notification of a fireworks accident on Loy Krathong night. The injured person is a police officer who tried to light a flare but it blew up in his hand leaving just one finger behind. The incident happened right in front of a girlfriend and his friends. Officials arrived at the location and found a large group of people surrounding the injured person. The man’s left hand was bleeding and the damage was so bad skin was hanging showing the bones underneath. Officers performed first aid care and delivered him to the Mae Sot Hospital. 

     

     

    At the incident location there was a lot of blood on the ground and remains of the fireworks. Evidence was collected as part of the case. A member of the local rescue team revealed the injured person is a police officer at a police station in Tak Province. The officer went to celebrate Loy Krathong with his girlfriend at the Mae Sot Reservoir. He brought 8 flares and started lighting them. It didn’t go as expected when there was a loud sound and it blew up in his hands in front of all the friends. 

     

     

    Police received many complaints from villagers across the province on fireworks. The fireworks went on all night causing sound pollution to those who are trying to celebrate Loy Krathong peacefully and those sleeping in their home. Locals were also afraid that the fireworks would cause harm to other persons or animals. Officials have asked locals to avoid lighting fireworks on Loy Krathong night. Those who chose to use fireworks normally do it anyway but it is impossible to stop every person in the country.

  • Kimpton continues its growth momentum in Thailand

    Bangkok, Thailand – 20 November 2021: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, one of the six brands in IHG Hotels & Resorts’

    The post Kimpton continues its growth momentum in Thailand appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    Bangkok, Thailand – 20 November 2021: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, one of the six brands in IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle Collection continues its growth momentum in Thailand with the unveiling of Kimpton Khao Yai. This is the third Kimpton to sign in Thailand following the brand’s debut in 2020.

     

    Opening in 2024, the 100-room luxury wellness resort Kimpton Khao Yai will offer barefoot luxury across every touchpoint of the guest experience. Capturing the Kimpton brand’s playful and sophisticated design, innovative approach to restaurants and bars, and immersive guest experiences that foster genuine human connections, it will offer a fresh perspective on hospitality in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Khao Yai.

     

    Located within Pak Chong, the resort will offer scenic mountain views across all of its 70 rooms and 30 pool villas. Guests will enjoy Kimpton’s innovative culinary experiences in its restaurants and locally-inspired drinks in its lobby bar, along with its famed daily Social Hour. Other facilities include a meeting space measuring 50 square metres, swimming pool, fitness centre, spa and resort centre.

     

    Serena Lim, Vice President, Development, South East Asia and Korea, IHG said: Kimpton continues to strengthen its positioning in Thailand with Kimpton Khao Yai. We have seen a lot of interest for the brand since we opened Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok in the middle of the pandemic to much fanfare, becoming a much-loved and popular destination for Bangkok residents and their pets. The signing of Kimpton Kitalay Samui swiftly followed and now the third Kimpton has been signed in Thailand. This is such a fantastic testament to the strength of the brand in both city and resort locations and is very much part of our plan to grow our luxury and lifestyle portfolio in Thailand by 50% in the next few years.

    “We feel privileged and excited to work with Nusasiri Public Company for our first project together in beautiful Khao Yai. They are a highly experienced property developer in Thailand, and we appreciate the trust that they have placed in IHG as the resilience of our brands and power of IHG systems and enterprise come to the fore in the current environment.”

    Khun Visanu Thepchareon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Nusasiri Public Company Limited said: “Thailand is opening its borders to international travel and I am confident that the travel industry will rebound strongly. We want to establish a strong foothold in hospitality and are excited to work with IHG to bring the Kimpton brand to Khao Yai.

    “We strongly believe that Kimpton’s heartfelt approach to hospitality, offering thoughtfully curated and meaningful  experiences coupled with locally-loved and innovative restaurants and bars makes it the ideal choice for the Nusa Ozone mixed use development project. Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok launch was extremely well-received and set the standards for a distinctive, lifestyle-led hotel experience. We are confident that Kimpton Khao Yai will be a resounding success and further elevate Khao Yai as a luxury and lifestyle resort destination for local and international travellers.”

    Blessed with a lush mountainous landscape and all year cool climate, Khao Yai boasts a wealth of natural wonders including stunning waterfalls and fertile valleys. A two hour drive from Bangkok, it is a popular luxury resort destination for city dwellers seeking a scenic weekend getaway.

    Situated north of Khao Yai National Park and within Pak Chong, Kimpton Khao Yai will be part of the Nusa MyOzone Project, a 600-acre integrated resort which will include an 18-hole golf course, retail and recreational facilities including an organic farm, hotels and residences, and a private airport. Guests will enjoy easy access and proximity to nearby waterparks, adventure theme parks, award-winning vineyards and golf courses, as well as outdoor adventure experiences in Khao Yai National Park.

    This signing is part of Kimpton’s continued momentum in new urban and resort destinations across Asia. After openings in Taipei, Tokyo and Bangkok, Kimpton Kitalay Samui will be the second Kimpton hotel to open in Thailand with Kimpton Naranta Bali, at Indonesia’s Nusa Dua, following shortly after.

     

    Thailand continues to be a strong growth market for IHG, with 29 hotels across eight brands in the country and another 34 properties in the pipeline. The new signings are part of the company’s aim to double the size of IHG’s estate in Thailand within the next five years and grow its Luxury and Lifestyle portfolio in Thailand by 50%.

    Designed with state-of-the-art technology and service from Canon to support the workflows anyone could wish for, enhanced with highly efficient solutions to fit the new working patterns to enable a seamless working environment inside and outside the office.

    • Canon fully understands the new work trend and helps drive your business into digital transformation

     

    At present, the normal work trend has drastically changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, prompting organizations to actively respond to situations as well as the New Normal. Technologies have played an increasingly important role in our every footstep and fueled enterprises to the world of digital transformation at a much faster pace than ever. Work from Home and Hybrid Workplace, which have been widely adopted during the past lockdown periods, prove to be highly efficient. And that is where Canon’s “Smart Workspace Solutions” can make things easy for you, as  the intelligent solutions developed by Canon help strengthen your business with latest technologies and serve as an important tool to manage workflows for those working from home and working in the office with more convenience.

     

    During the post Covid-19 period when lockdown measures have been eased, it can be clearly seen that many organizations have adjusted their operational strategy for hybrid work, offering more flexibility for employees to work either from home or at the office. Some organizations adopt the policy of 100% working in the office, while some may allow employees to work from home 100%. In this respect, Canon has designed services and solutions that support all kinds of working styles in response to a Smart Working trend. These intelligent solutions help organizations with several preparations, ranging from workspace, office equipment and technology to security tools and measures, in order to address problems at work and assure employees that they will be able to work smoothly, smart and efficiently, no matter where they are.  The solutions can help transform your organization simply into a Smart Office right at your very first step into the office.

     

    “The Forefront always remain important with Time Attendance and Access Control Systems”

    Many organizations may already have a screening point system installed, but the spread of a contagious disease requires more stringent screening system before entry. For this reason, Canon has provided various innovative intelligent solutions and technologies that cover ranges of any requirements of all organizations and facilitate data management of location access based on high-performance security systems, with functions in the following categories:

    • Time Attendance: This all-in-one solution comes with a CCTV system and software that add more features to time recording systems, which can detect human faces and display the date, time as well as location to allow you to manage each employee’s attendance.
    • Access Control: Due to the spread of the Covid-19, everyone needs to remain vigilant and avoid physical contacts as much as possible. Nowadays, there are several access systems to choose from, such as Finger Scan or, to reduce touchpoints, Face Scan and Face & Card Scan, with body temperature screening when we walk past.
    • Face Recognition Performance: The technology needed for enhancing security and facilitating screening entries refers to the advanced Face Recognition system which can identify anyone walking past even though he or she is with a face mask on or wearing eyeglasses or a hat.
    • Visitor Management: Sometimes, we are required to invite visitors from outside to attend meetings in our office. Canon has developed Visitor Management System to manage entries of visitors. The system allows visitors to pre-register for entry via a QR code sent by the inviting employee prior to the visit. The system can record and recognize the face of the pre-registered visitors, and upon arrival, the subject visitors will be able to access the office hassle-free with no need to spend much time with the receptionist.

     

    “Transform your Special Work Corner with Meeting Room & Hot Desk Management Solution Systems”

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many organizations have downsized their workspace and optimize the use of space. Some organizations have reduced the number of desks and adopted Hybrid Workplace and Work from Home, with less number of remaining employees working in the office to maintain social distancing, while some other companies allow their employees to flexibly change their desks to avoid being stuck in the same environment. For this reason, a fuss-free system to help efficiently manage reservations for desks and meeting rooms is definitely needed for the convenience of employees.

     

    • Meeting Room Display & Booking: You will have no more frustration in finding a space to meet up with someone, as Canon has an intelligent solution “ecobook” that helps manage reservations of meeting rooms. The system can be connected to Microsoft Outlook and Google Workspace (G Suite), enabling employees to reserve meeting rooms It also comes with a Room Display feature, a digital display screen installed in front of the meeting room showing reservation status and reservation of the room can also be easily done on the screen.
    • Hot Seat Booking & Desk Pod: You no longer need to fight for a seat, by use of a hot seat booking feature on the ecobook which connects to the Desk Pod. Or just scan the QR code displayed on your desk to see booking status, and you will be able to book seats online easily.
    • Flight Board: a big displayed screen shows status of meeting rooms and desks, as well as the directions to meeting rooms.

     

    “Moving Forward in this New Normal – Conducting Online Meetings Smoothly like Professionals with Interactive Display and Video Conferencing”

    Say goodbye to a flickering screen, sound breaking up and fuzzy sound issues. For a smooth online meeting, high-quality tools are needed. Canon has provided a wide selection of high-quality tools which can deliver top notch audio and video qualities for your varying purposes.

    • Interactive Display: Various smart display models in various sizes from Maxhub can fit into varying sizes of meeting rooms, from 55 to 68 inches display, with 12-megapixel front camera and high-quality sound system, compatible with both Windows and Android operating systems.
