    The future

    Learningpost, David Canavan, Published on 16/11/2010

    » Pupils at my school recently put on an assembly about the past, telling their peers and parents what the '50s, '60s, '70s and '80s were like. The information presented included coverage of atomic bombs, racism, music, trends and sport. One of the things they mentioned was that people used to watch movies on a VCR (videocassette recorder) and that you could use it to record songs and videos! It started me thinking about what has changed over the course of not only my life, but theirs, too. Most of the pupils in the performance were born in 1999, and since then, the mobile phone has become a hand-held computer, and something the size of a fat credit card can hold thousands of songs.

The oil rig is leased by BP Plc, fka British Petroleum, a British-based global energy company.

    » Although it had stopped raining, clouds still blanketed the high peaks of the Banthat mountain range, which could be seen clearly from the school's yard. A modern two-storey building stands at one end of the yard, contrasting against the old, flat one-storey school edifice.

    It's a small world in Thai politics

    B Magazine, Andrew Biggs, Published on 08/08/2010

    » Oh God, not another one. On a ranking of things Thailand desperately needs right now, where would "an extra province" be? Surely somewhere down in the 900s, wedged between "pay rise for politicians" (#946) and "more Cambodian child beggars outside police booths" (#948).
