    Today, August 12, is the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit, who was married to King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Following the coronation of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn, her son, and his marriage to the new Queen Suthida, Queen Sirikit has now been given the title of Queen Mother.

    Her Majesty Queen Sirikit is the daughter of His Highness Prince Chandaburi Suranath (mother Chao Nakkhatra Mangkala Kitiyakara) and mother Luang Bua Kitiyakara (born mother Luang Bua Snidwongse).

    She was born on August 12, 1932. She attended kindergarten at Rajini school, but then attended St. Francis Xavier Monastery School in Bangkok’s Samsen District.

    Queen Sirikit is known for her charitable work. She has been president of the Thai Red Cross since 1956. Through the Thai Red Cross, the Queen is committed to providing assistance to the many refugees from Cambodia and Burma in Thailand. The Queen played an active role in the aftermath of the tsunami disaster in southern Thailand in December 2004. Tragically, the tsunami took the life of her grandson Bhumi Jensen, the son of her eldest daughter.

    On July 21, 2012, Queen Sirikit felt unsteady and unsteady while exercising at Siriraj Hospital where King Bhumibol Adulyadej was staying. Doctors determined she had a stroke. The Queen was not seen in public until August 2013 when the King was released from hospital. Since then, Queen Sirikit has refrained from public appearances.

    King Bhumibol Adulyadej died on October 13, 2016 at Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok, aged 88, after several years of illness.

    Mother’s Day in Thailand is traditionally held on Queen Sirikit’s birthday, and now with her new role as Queen Mother, the tradition continues.

     Long live Queen Sirikit, the Queen Mother

    Labor Minister Suchart Chomklin has said Thailand will focus on sending skilled or semi-skilled workers to Saudi Arabia to fulfill the Gulf state’s wishes.

    He said Thai workers can now work in Saudi Arabia, thanks to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s efforts to restore relations between the two countries after three decades of sour ties.

    Riyadh cut trade and diplomatic ties with Bangkok after the so-called Blue Diamond affair, in which the theft of jewelry by a Thai worker from a Saudi palace in 1989 was followed by the murder of Saudi representatives in Thailand.

    “Overseas labor markets will be opportunities for our children to gain experience and learn new technologies that can be applied in Thailand,” Suchart claimed.

    He promised a memorandum of understanding with Saudi Arabia to send workers to the Gulf state within 90 days.

    The Saudi crown prince has a vision to build a huge city with modern technology as a financial center in the Middle East, which would create more than 1 million jobs, Suchart emphasized.

    Saudi Arabia has an urgent demand for workers in the tourism, hotels, restaurants and healthcare sectors, he added.

    Meanwhile, the director-general of the Ministry of Employment, Pairoj Chotikasathien, said seven Saudi Arabian companies have filed requests for 2,161 Thai employees of the department, including nurses, drivers, cleaning personnel and engineers.

    A former Twitter employee has been found guilty of espionage. He did this for the Saudi government. Bloomberg news agency reports that he is also suspected of internet fraud, money laundering and information falsification.

    It is about Ahmad Abuammo. He collected information for Saudi Arabia between November 2014 and May 2015 and passed the data on to Saudi officials. In return, he received various rewards.

    Abouammo worked at Twitter as a manager. According to Bloomberg, he helped individuals from the Middle East and North Africa promote their accounts. He abused his role to gain access to contact and login details of users who have been critical of the government of Saudi Arabia.

    According to US authorities, Abouammo was working with an aide to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. The former manager says he has simply done his job and believes that Twitter should protect personal data better.

    It is not clear exactly what punishment Abouammo will receive. Bloomberg reports that he faces 10 to 20 years in prison. In addition to Abouammo, two other persons are also wanted by the US government for espionage.

    The carcass of a male whale shark has washed up this week on Long Beach on Koh Lanta Island in southern Krabi province, local officials said is a first for Krabi as dead whale sharks had never been washed ashore before.

    The manager of the Sayang Beach Resort on Koh Lanta, Somboon Kaengraeg, saw the dead whale shark and reported it to officials.

    So far, 10 officials and veterinarians from Mu Koh Lanta National Park, Royal Thai Navy and Sireetarn Matine Endangered Animals Rescue Center in Trang Province have examined the whale shark carcass.

    The investigation found that the whale shark measured 7.3 meters in length, weighed 2.5 tons and had been dead for about three days. There were no wounds or traces of an attack on the body. The carcass was later hoisted onto a backhoe and sent to a lab for an autopsy to try to determine the cause of death.

    The report added that many whale sharks had been spotted in the Krabi Sea and many tourists came to the area to see these beauties of Thailand’s seas.

    Several Thai divers expressed their condolences. One diver said he believed the whale shark lived in the area between Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta. The diver added that the whale shark had been spotted a number of times, but had disappeared from view about 10 days ago.
