    A beautiful mongrel

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 06/10/2017

    » List the obligatory terms you've seen in all articles about the original Blade Runner -- cyberpunk, dystopian future, neon wasteland, existential noir, cerebral deliberation, gorgeous visuals, brutalist design, Sean Young -- and they're still applicable to the rebooted Blade Runner 2049. You may add a few more: glum, long, Hans Zimmer and Ryan Gosling, wandering the bleak, rain-swept Los Angeles and pondering the deep question: Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    The inciting incident

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 06/10/2017

    » On Sept 24, 1976, two electricians were beaten and hanged to death from the top of a gate somewhere in Nakhon Pathom, victims of an escalating right-wing terror in Thai politics of that heady decade. Two weeks later, as protests against the return to the Kingdom of former dictator Gen Thanom Kittikajorn gathered steam, students at Thammasat University staged a play about the hanging of the two men. Soon the photographs of the play were used by nationalists to whip up anger and fear of communism, which led to the massacre on the morning of Oct 6 as police and militias laid siege to the university, killing, maiming and brutalising scores of people in one of the worst incidents of bloodshed in modern Thai history.

    Policy rate cut equals currency depreciation? Not always

    Business, TMB Analytics, Published on 06/10/2017

    » How does a country's policy interest rate influence the currency exchange rate? Theoretically speaking, when a country's rate of return falls, investors will move their capital to other countries with higher rates of return, causing the local currency to depreciate. But it is possible that a policy rate reduction will lead to a stronger local currency instead. This depends on investors' expectations of future policy rates.
