Thailand’s orphaned baby dugong becomes conservation star

Thailand’s orphaned baby dugong becomes conservation star

Vet Pathompong Kongjit told AFP that Mariam — who now lives in the waters around Ko Libong island of Trang province — has become a symbol of the dire need for a clean-up in Thailand’s plastic-choked seas.(AFP)

Cuddles at feeding time are one of many techniques vets in Thailand are using to raise an orphaned baby dugong named Mariam, and which have helped spread interest in ocean conservation in the process.

Found stranded on a beach in May at six months old, the ocean mammal has been receiving daily care from park officials, local conservation groups, and veterinarians at Phuket Marine Biological Centre.

Her star took off after photos showing her being cradled by the vets went viral on social media, and the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) has posted frequent updates on her condition.

Vet Pathompong Kongjit told AFP that Mariam — who now lives in the waters around Ko Libong island of Trang province — has become a symbol of the dire need for a clean-up in Thailand’s plastic-choked seas.

“Mariam has ignited the interest among Thai people to care about marine animals, Thai seas and nature in general,” he said.

But so far, her biggest challenge is feeding herself, as she has trouble digging out the seagrass buried in the ocean floor.

“Mariam can only eat the protruding seagrass,” he told AFP, adding that she’s “getting better” at it.

Female dugongs also usually breastfeed their babies while they are swimming — something the vets cannot do.

“So we hold her while feeding her milk, and after that we have to get her to swim around to exercise her digestion system,” Pathompong said.

Her caretakers also use an orange canoe — nicknamed “Mother Orange” — for her to follow around in the water for exercise.

Despite Mariam’s seeming dependence on her human friends, Pathompong said she’s “learned to adjust to the environment” and no longer gets stranded on the beach.

But “it doesn’t matter how many marine animals we can save… if their sea homes are in bad conditions,” said the vet, adding that Mariam will likely be under their care for at least another year.

The avalanche of public interest in Mariam’s progress has prompted the DMCR to set up a livestream for the growing baby, expected to be broadcast at the end of this week.

Another baby dugong was also found stranded in Krabi earlier this week.

‘Don’t be evil’: New Zealand tells Google on British backpacker case

'Don't be evil': New Zealand tells Google on British backpacker case

WELLINGTON (Reuters) – New Zealand’s justice minister on Wednesday urged Alphabet’s Google not to be “evil” after the company failed to abide by a suppression order related to the murder case of a British backpacker.

The killing of 22-year-old Grace Millane last year shocked New Zealand, where serious crimes are relatively rare and its cities and countryside are considered safe.

A New Zealand man accused of the crime pleaded not guilty in January and his name has been suppressed by a court in Auckland.

However, the man’s name appeared in Google’s “what’s trending in New Zealand” email that was sent to thousands of subscribers.

Despite assurances from Google in meetings with government officials, the issue remains unresolved, said Justice Minister Andrew Little.

“My message to Google is, don’t be evil. Do the right thing,” Little said in a video posted on his Twitter account, referring to the company’s former motto “don’t be evil”.

“We’ve had a situation where, in a very important trial – the Grace Millane case – a newspaper, helped by Google, has published information that the judge said was suppressed,” Little said.

“That’s wrong and I’ve been a bit frustrated by Google not working out what the problem is and what they can do to prevent this from happening again,” he added.

A Google representative said the company respects New Zealand law and understands the sensitivity around this issue.

“When we receive valid court orders, including suppression orders, we review and respond appropriately,” the representative said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

Millane, who was traveling after finishing university, went missing in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, on Dec. 1.

Police found her body in a bush area just a few meters from a scenic drive in Auckland’s Waitakere Ranges.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is leading a global campaign to stop social media like Facebook, Google and others from being used to promote terrorism and violent extremism after a mass shooting in Christchurch in March.

Ardern said she was disappointed by Google’s response in the Millane case.

“Now we need to consider what the next steps will be for NZ,” Ardern told reporters on Wednesday, according to broadcaster Newshub.

MADRID (Reuters) – The number of international visitors to Spain is expected to break a record this summer, marking the seventh straight year of new highs, Industry Minister Reyes Maroto said on Wednesday.

Spain is the world’s second most visited country after France and tourism is a pivotal sector for the domestic economy, contributing to nearly 12% of its gross domestic product.

“Spain will reach a new record in arrivals of international tourists, exceeding 29.6 million visitors … half a million more than last summer” Maroto told a news conference.

Tourist spending was also expected to rise to a new record, growing by 3.2% in the July-September period year-on-year to around 33.9 billion euros ($38.3 billion), the minister said.

Spain is focusing on attracting new tourists, such as visitors from China, as well as consolidating mature markets such as the United Kingdom or Germany.

In 2018, some 18.5 million sunseekers from Britain and 11.4 million from Germany visited Spain, according to official data.

Maroto said less than one percent of the Chinese tourists traveling the world were choosing Spain for their holidays.

Mallika Sherawat: I lost 20-30 films because male actors replaced me with their girlfriends

Mallika Sherawat: I lost 20-30 films because male actors replaced me with their girlfriends

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat revealed that she lost out on a number of projects as male actors could not stomach her opinionated nature and replaced her with their girlfriends. The actress, who got a breakthrough with Murder almost 15 years ago, said when she looks back at all those people, they look like fools.

“I lost film projects because they thought I was opinionated. I would hear from heroes ‘don’t cast her she speaks a lot and has a lot of opinions’. They would prefer their girlfriends instead of me in projects. I can list at least 20-30 movies that I’ve lost. But it didn’t make me bitter. It was my gradual evolution. Now when I look back, they look like fools, all of them,” Mallika told PTI.

She said that no one took her seriously when she started to speak about social issues, including the mindset of people towards women.

“When I spoke about women’s issues, there were people in Bollywood and the media who thought I wasn’t a patriot and weren’t ready to listen. I know actresses who attacked me. But I love my country and hence this regressive mindset we have against women needs to change,” the 42-year-old actress said.

Mallika also said that today with the arrival of digital platforms, things are looking up for all those actors who could not do much in the “traditional, formulaic Bollywood” set up.

“Actors are seeing a freedom which wasn’t there before. Now is the golden period where you get meaty parts and express yourself freely. There’s censorship, films are formulaic. Traditional Bollywood is very fearful, they don’t want to take a risk if the formula is working. There are exceptions like Stree, Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho, but we make 1500 films a year, out of which only a handful stand out,” the Pyaar Ke Side Effects actress said.

On the work front, she has appeared in films like Khwahish (2002), Kis Kis Ki Kismat (2004), Murder (2004), Pyaar Ke Side Effects (2006), Darna Zaroori Hai (2006), Welcome (2007), Ugly Aur Pagli (2008), Hiss (2010) and Double Dhamaal (2011) among others.
