First rice auction finished, drought, disease lower farm sector growth & Laem Chabang port's plans for expansion. AGRICULTURE First rice auction finished More than 200,000 tonnes of rice will be auctioned next week, following the first bid in two years of 60,000 tonnes two weeks ago. The government disclosed the results yesterday of the first rice auction called by the Commerce Ministry, which drew five interested bidders. 60,000 tonnes of 5% white rice from six warehouses were sold. The minister refused to disclose the prices, saying only the auction fetched decent prices higher than the benchmark set by the committee that handled the government's rice stock sales. He said disclosing the price would affect sales in future auctions. However, a rice industry source said the winners might have proposed to buy the grains for under 12,000 baht per tonne.

The CLS has always been my favourite Mercedes model for many reasons. While the general Mercedes buyer a decade ago would expect a large and elegant vehicle with lots of interior space, the first-gen CLS, first launched in 2005, offers quite the opposite.

I love to compare the CLS to a family member – that mysterious underworld uncle who comes to the family reunion with plenty of gifts, but never tells you what he does for a living – imagine Christopher Walken. Of course the CLS isn’t perfect, with the low roof offering little headroom, particularly for the rear passengers. But that was another reason I liked it so much – this was an example of style taking over practicality, something you don’t expect from well-engineered German cars. The long wheelbase and flat body provided the CLS with a … [Read more...] about Third-gen CLS is bigger and more complete
caption Peter Thiel source Tristan Fewings/Getty Images Peter Thiel, one of Silicon Valley’s most successful and controversial venture capitalists, is reportedly leaving the Bay Area. The outspoken libertarian will reportedly relocate his home, personal funds, and his foundation to Los Angeles, according to The Wall Street Journal, and he’s taking his 50-person staff with him. Why Los Angeles? It isn’t totally clear. As a famously private person, Thiel has yet to confirm the move, or the rumors that he might also be resigning from the board at Facebook. Still, it’s worth taking this time to look at Thiel’s rise to fame in the tech capital of the world – a saga that includes his effort to stop aging and death, his controversial thoughts about college, and his war with the media: Peter Thiel was born in Germany. He moved to the Bay Area when he was in fifth grade. source Flickr / Sharon Hahn Darlin His family … [Read more...] about The life and rise of Peter Thiel, the successful and controversial investor who is reportedly leaving Silicon Valley
