🤝 DONE DEAL! Nakhonratchasima FC announced Jaturapat Sattham.

The left-back arrived at the PAT Stadium in 2020 after a breakout season with Chainat Hornbill. He recorded 10 Thai League games for Port FC in 2021-22 and recently finished 2nd with Thai U23 at the #SEAGAMES2021

From Bangkok Post
Monday’s figures did not include 2,151 positive results from antigen tests. This would raise the total to 3,912.

Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook venison steak. But all of Bubba’s neighbours were Catholic, and since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating red meat on Friday.
The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they finally talked to their priest.
The priest came to visit Bubba and suggested that he become a Catholic.
After several classes and much study, Bubba attended Mass. The priest sprinkled holy water over him and said, “You were born a Baptist and raised as a Baptist, but now you are Catholic.”
Bubba’s neighbours were greatly relieved, until Friday night arrived and the wonderful aroma of grilled venison filled the neighbourhood. The priest was called immediately by the neighbours.
As the priest rushed into Bubba’s yard, clutching a rosary and prepared to scold him, he stopped and watched in amazement.
There stood Bubba, clutching a small bottle of holy water, which he carefully sprinkled over the grilling meat while chanting, “You wuz born a deer, you wuz raised a deer, but now you are a catfish.”

Caller I take what you say but Cities in Australia must surely have densely populated areas too.  For me it's hard to see how this factor could possibly explain a differential of 10x.

Moving on, sad to read this :-

"The UK’s Covid inquiry has hired more than 60 barristers despite having no start date, raising fears that it could end up as the most expensive such investigation in history. With almost a year to go before the inquiry is expected to begin hearing evidence, it employs as many barristers as the Bloody Sunday inquiry, the current record holder, which lasted 12 years and cost the taxpayer £192 million.

Baroness Hallett, the Covid inquiry chairman, has taken on 49 junior barristers to work with the 11 QCs already on the books to “conduct legal research, analyse and review documents, identify evidence, draft materials and assist with the preparation of hearings”, according to a statement. The number of barristers working on the inquiry will raise concerns that it could drag on for years, with costs spiralling.

Boris Johnson has yet to agree the inquiry’s terms of reference, and it will have no legal standing until he does so. Lady Hallett’s staff have said they do not expect to begin hearing evidence from witnesses until next spring, a year later than Mr Johnson initially suggested
."

Caller I tend to agree about not trusting the Thai figures.
I doubt that population density explains the Aussie low figure - most people live in the Cities I guess.

Yes, but they are small and very spread out. Have you been to the Western suburbs of Sydney? For one trip I had to Oz, I used to catch the train from Penrith to Sydney. About the same distance as from Reading to London, and Reading isn't classed a London suburb. And they had very heavy lockdowns.

Jivvy - everyone is different  8)  IMO a 'shoutbox' on here would be a bad idea - K-F has the merit of being a reasoned and polite (if quiet) place. That Buriram forum sounds awful and I would personally not go there. BTW I always read your posts and I'm sure others do too.

It was a shame when we lost 'Thaiger' again but the issue went back to the past I think. Regrettable though as he would have been a regular poster. I think CK is in touch with him - perhaps CK might invite him back ?

Eagle yes I'd be happy to contribute to the costs of keeping K-F going.

SFS - good luck with the move, and as for posting, no time like the present  ;)

I have the forum open in a tab on my browser, so I look at it all the time. I would hate to see the forum go away since there is no good alternative. If it's a matter of money to pay for the hosting, myself and I'm sure other members would be happy to contribute.
