Chiang Mai Governor issues public order prohibiting burning

As a result of increasing public concern about pollution in the city, its surrounding areas, and the province itself, the Governor of Chiang Mai, Viboon Sanguanphongs, has issued a public order prohibiting burning of all kinds in open areas. Rubbish incineration and the cutting down of trees are also prohibited. The order is highly specific, and is being sent out to all local administration organisations, and also to government agencies in the province.
Prohibited activities include waste incineration, the burning of twigs, leaves, agricultural residue and the burning of areas of forest. Officers are being sent out to instruct the public in alternative ways of eradicating or recycling waste, as recommended by the governor. The province has also designated certain areas as forest fire protection zones. It is hoped that officers will be able to persuade local people to abandon their traditional burning practices and replace them with new methods of waste management in order to produce fertilizer. Any breaches of the new public order will be severely dealt with under the law.

Ismail on fire as Warriors topple City Life

The first match of the New Year saw lots of excitement and good cricket when the Warriors enjoyed a comfortable win over City Life at the Gymkhana last Sunday with six overs to spare.
Batting first, City Life struggled to reach 142 with only Makki, a typical swashbuckling 29, and Thong, with a controlled innings of defense and aggression, scoring 57 not out, as the major scorers.
Ishmael, bowling with lively pace, took 3 City Life wickets for 19 with left-armer Chris Simmons 2 for 17 and Noor, six overs for an economical 10 runs, lending good support.
Despite an early breakthrough, Warriors reached 146 for the loss of only 6 wickets with Ishmael scoring a delightful 67 not out and Shiffy 20.
