Political scene in Thailand has been in the turmoil recently.
It got even worse today, the opposition taking control of the Airport.
Where is Sunny bhai?
Can you elaborate on the situation for us please?

ROGERS, Ark. – An Arkansas woman has given birth to her 18th child.

Michelle Duggar delivered the baby girl by Caesarean section Thursday at Mercy Medical Center in Rogers. The baby, named Jordyn-Grace Makiya Duggar, weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long.

"The ultimate Christmas gift from God," said Jim Bob Duggar, the father of the 18 children. "She's just absolutely beautiful, like her mom and her sisters."

The Duggars now have 10 sons and eight daughters.

Exclamation 'Bangladesh may lose big Bay area'

Quote:
Sat, Jan 10th, 2009 12:19 am BdST
Dhaka, Jan 9 (bdnews24.com) – Bangladesh stands to lose a large sea area to two neighbours if it does not register its claims with the UN by 2011, warns a grouping of eminent citizens.

Myanmar has already filed its claims to the UN, while the India is processing the issue, according to National Committee to Protect Maritime Area and Resources.

The loss could be to the tune of 15-40 thousand square kilometres of sea area, a possibility if the two neighbours filed their claims and Bangladesh did not.

"In accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Bangladesh will have to lodge primary claims about its maritime boundary by 2011 after necessary surveys," retired commodore Khurshed Alam said, speaking Friday at a press conference for the committee.

"But Bangladesh is yet to reach any decision in this regard," he said. "The loss will have huge economic consequences," the former commodore said in a written statement.

Failure to meet the 2011 deadline would mean Bangladesh would have to be satisfied with the leftover from India and Myanmar, the committee warned.

The Territorial Waters and Maritime Zones Act 1974 of Bangladesh has never been updated in line with the UNCLOS Charter of 1982, the former navy officer said.

The maritime boundary dispute has already hit headlines in recent months, with both India and Myanmar trying to explore for natural resources into territory that Bangladesh claims its.

Bangladesh banks not only on its many rivers, said professor Serajul Islam Chowdhury, but also the Bay of Bengal.

Chowdhury and other eminent citizens have formed the committee to create awareness among all, including policymakers, about the importance of protecting Bangladesh's sea resources.

Prof Chowdhury said the maritime issue should be discussed in the parliament.


Prof Anu Muhammad said failure to secure sea rights bordered on compromise with the sovereignty of the country.

Prof Akmal Hossain cited the recent "intrusion of India and Myanmar into the Bangladesh waters" and said these incidents proved the resourcefulness of the Bay.

"Diplomacy should be the means to resolve such issues, but, first, we need to demarcate our maritime borders," said Hossain, a professor of international relations at Dhaka University.

If diplomacy fails, he said, Bangladesh could go to the International Tribunal.

The committee recommended that a maritime ministry be formed to deal solely with the issue.

It said Bangladesh will have to establish its rights on Dakhin (south) Talpatti Island resolving the dispute with India.

According to that UN charter, Bangladesh can claim up to 350 nautical miles (650 kilometres) of the Bay of Bengal from the continental shelf.

Default Airbus crashes in New York river

Quote:
A US airliner on a domestic flight with at least 152 people aboard has crashed into the Hudson River in New York City but with no loss of life.

All 148 passengers and the crew of at least four were rescued from the sinking plane, the US Federal Aviation Administration confirmed.

The US Airways Airbus A320 crashed just after taking off from LaGuardia Airport heading for Charlotte, North Carolina.

Officials believe the plane may have collided with a flock birds.

"There is no indication that the incident is security-related," a homeland security official told the BBC.

Rescue boats plucked passengers, who could be seen wearing life jackets, from the wings of the plane.

US Airways said it was confirming passenger and crew names from Flight 1549 and would issue them as soon as possible. It also gave an emergency number for people who believe they may have had relatives on the flight:

Default Iran launches its first satellite

Quote:
Iran has launched its first domestically made satellite into orbit, state media reports.

TV commentary said Monday's night-time launch from a Safir-2 rocket was "another achievement for Iranian scientists under sanctions".

The satellite was designed for research and telecommunications purposes, the television report said.

Iran is subject to UN sanctions as some Western powers think it is trying to build a nuclear bomb, which it denies.

Tehran says its nuclear ambitions are limited to the production of energy.

The launch of the Omid (Hope) satellite had been expected and was clearly timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Iranian revolution, says the BBC's Jon Leyne in Tehran.

It's actually quite serious, and not funny at all.

I didn't know this sort of extremism happens in India. Searched YouTube just now...kinda shocked.

St. Louis airport theft ring busted

UPDATE (Friday, March 20, 2:25 p.m. ET): In an update to the original story, The Associated Press writes "eight contract baggage handlers for Delta Airlines rifled through hundreds of bags of luggage at Lambert Airport over a period of more than a year, stealing some 900 items ranging from laptops and iPods to cologne and cigarettes, airport police said Thursday. ... At a news conference at the airport, most of the recovered items were laid out on tables. The thieves targeted expensive goods, mostly electronic devices, games, computers and computer equipment. There also were more mundane items — cartons of cigarettes, battery chargers, even cologne." Airport police chief Paul Mason says: "I've been here 20 years and this is the first time we've had anything of this magnitude."
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch adds "the employees stashed the items until the work day ended, then left with the stolen loot stuffed inside jackets or backpacks, Mason said. ... The thefts are isolated to Delta travelers and did not affect other airlines or other parts of the airport. Most of the items were stolen from the baggage of outbound fliers, said the lead investigator, detective Eric K. Williams." The Post-Dispatch says customers who believe something may have been stolen from their luggage while flying out of St. Louis during the past 15 months should call a police hotline number at (314) 890-1822.

ORIGINAL POST: If you've flown through St. Louis recently, you may want to check to see if you can account for everything you had in your checked luggage. The Associated Press reports "several baggage handlers were arrested for allegedly stealing items from luggage at Lambert Airport in St. Louis. The arrests were announced Thursday. Details are to be released in an afternoon news conference."
AP says officials have recovered nearly 900 items that allegedly were stolen from fliers' checked bags. Airport spokesman Jeff Lea tells AP the suspects worked for a baggage handling company that worked for a particular airline. He said the airport would not release more details until this afternoon's press conference, which will be at 3:30 p.m. ET, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

People are catching the flu left and right here. I too have been having sore throat, coughing, fever and a runny nose. The doctor said I have bronchitis (maybe he just looked at my file and said this since I have a past history of bronchitis almost regularly for the last 3 years). He has given me antibiotics but it has been three days and there is no sign of improvement. I might go see my family doctor tomorrow.
