new train lines Thailand military government has approved two high-speed train projects. The two routes approved are intended to serve as a transport link between Thailand and southern China.

Proposals for a high-speed train from Rayong to Nong Khai - and on to China - were first made in October, 2013.

Permanent secretary for transport Soithip Traisuth, however, said the maximum speed of the trains to be operated on the new routes, between Nong Khai and Map Ta Phut and between Chaing Khong and Ban Phachi, would have to be reduced to 160 kilometres per hour from the 200 km/ph previously stated.

The construction of the two routes will begin next year and should be completed by 2021.

chilli A chemical compound found in spicy curries could help reduce the risk of developing bowel cancer, a study has found.

Researchers gave capsaicin, which gives chilli peppers their heat, to mice genetically prone to developing multiple tumours in their gastrointestinal tract.

The capsaicin triggered a pain receptor in the cells lining their intestines, setting off a reaction that reduced the risk of growing colorectal tumours. Researchers gave capsaicin, which gives chilli peppers their heat, to mice genetically prone to developing multiple tumours in their gastrointestinal tract

Scientists found that the treatment extended the lifespan of the mice by more than 30%. And it was even more effective when combined with celecoxib, an anti-inflammatory drug already approved for treating some forms of arthritis.

Bowel cancer is the third most common type of cancer in the UK, with doctors diagnosing an average of 41,000 new cases of the disease every year.

  Dangerous Thailand...

Tourists warned that they will be jailed for up to 2 years if they don't carry their passports at all times

UK Passport Thailand's Immigration department have introduced harsh penalties for tourists caught not carrying their passports.

Immigration Division spokesman Colonel Worawat Amornwiwat said that starting from August 29, foreigners who failed to produce their passports would be fined up to Bt20,000 and jailed for up to two years.

Due to the fear of the consequences should one's passport get lost or stolen, some expats carry alternative forms of photo ID. But these seem to now be disallowed. Pol.Col. Thanasak Vongluekiat, Superintendent of Prachuap Khirikhan and Phetchaburi Immigration confirmed the following to the ThaiVisa website:

  1. By law, all tourists and expats nationwide are required to carry their original passports with them at all times. There is no exception to this. Failure to carry your original passport may result in a 2,000 THB fine. The reason behind this is that Immigration needs to keep track of overstayers and foreign criminals who may be staying illegally in the country.

  2. The information provided at an Immigration meeting was unclear. The correct information, which has always been the case, is that no other forms of identification are acceptable. This includes any other form of photo ID, such as a Thai/foreign driving license or a photocopy of your passport.

  3. Immigration does not provide any kind of stamp verification on a photocopy of a passport as announced at the meeting yesterday. Therefore, you are required to keep your original passport with you at all times as per point #1 above.
