Description/subject: NEWS TOPICS: * Monsoon rain shines on local farmers: “We are getting rain in areas of the country that usually see little rainfall, including Mandalay, Magwe and Sagaing divisions,” said Dr Tun Winn, the manager of the Myanmar Rice Research Centre under MAS. “This means the country will produce more crops this year. * US sanctions policy a failure: Daley: “We can’t escape the conclusion that our policies have simply not moved Myanmar in the right direction nor do they have any reasonable prospect of doing so” * HIV support group arranges Waso donation: DAW San San, 45, was overwhelmed with emotion and tears filled her eyes. She said she could not express her happiness at having the unexpected opportunity to donate Waso robes to monks at a monastery in Yangon last week. * Fish farms weather storms in early July: “Most shrimp farms are not in danger right now but we would like to be informed if high water is to be released from dams, or we would like to suggest that they do it during low tide,” * Vietnam PM plans ASEAN tour: Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung will visit five Southeast Asian countries – Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Myanmar and Brunei – next month, the government said last Thursday. * Reward offered to accident witnesses: “Anyone who informs the police when they see someone breaking traffic rules will get a reward equal to eight percent of the fine,” said an official from the committee. * Fines increase for ticketless train riders: FINES went up earlier this month for passengers who ride the trains on Yangon’s Circular Line without buying tickets. The fines are now K1000 for adults and K500 for children under the age of 10, up from the previous penalty of K100 for everyone. * FDA expansion aimed at fighting toxic products: “The FDA currently has only 100 staff, which is not enough to carry out strict monitoring processes to ensure the safety of the 50 million people in Myanmar,” he said. “In comparison, Thailand’s FDA has more than 1000 staff to monitor products there.” * Publisher of The Myanmar Times to launch lifestyle journal for women: “I’m happy to announce that the Press Scrutiny and Registration Division has given us formal approval. We have a dedicated, disciplined team at MCM involved in this project, which will allow the company to train key staff in publishing management skills,” * Course fills management gap at hotels: THE Myanmar Hoteliers Association (MHA) is offering a course in middle management from July 23 to August 17 to help fill managerial gaps in Myanmar’s hotel industry. * Thingangyun to host five-day festival: A MARKET festival jointly organised by the Yangon City Development Committee and Ruby House Exhibition, Advertising and Trading Company will be held at Nga Moe Yeik market in Thingangyun township from August 3 to 7. * Teashop business on upswing in Pyinmana: TEASHOPS in Pyinmana have experienced an upsurge in business since Myanmar’s administrative capital moved to nearby Nay Pyi Taw in November 2005, local residents and businesspeople said last week. *Japan to host ASEAN Tourism Fair: “We are now working hard on rehearsals so we can present marionette demonstrations and traditional dances at the fair,” * MRCS reveals future plans at council meeting: THE Myanmar Red Cross Society discussed plans for future trainings and other programs at its 61st Central Council Meeting held at Yangon’s University of Nursing on July 14 and 15. * Astrology design book to be published soon: “These horoscope floral arabesques are part of Myanmar’s cultural heritage,” she said. “They show scenes from the life of the Buddha, horoscopes of kings and queens of Myanmar and celestial maps depicting the zodiac.” * Kayah projects get aid: THE Japanese government has provided nearly US$120,000 under its grassroots grant assistance scheme for two humanitarian assistance projects in Kayah State. * Domestic autos take over Mandalay streets: JEEPS, mini-trucks and light trucks manufactured in Myanmar using high-quality imported parts are becoming an increasingly common sight on the streets of Mandalay due to their low prices.
