The Financial And Emotional Impact Of Theft On Businesses

In a theft case, the accused faces the risks of incarceration, loss of certain rights or substantial fines. Representing yourself is one of the biggest mistakes you can do in your life. There is a private theft lawyer that can provide legal representation to make sure that you get the justice you deserve.

Marlee Veness, a 27-year old woman plead guilty of stealing almost half a million dollars during her 2 and half years of employment with Alice Springs Helicopters. She stole a total $486,000 between 2014 and 2017.

According to Prosecutor Stephen Robson, the money was taken by Veness from direct money transfers on over 147 transactions. Many of the transactions were concealed by using legitimate business account names and invoice numbers. Veness used a systematic approach in the theft which was described as an offense that is “at or above mid-range.”

Veness started working with Alice Springs Helicopters in 2014. She was responsible for general bookkeeping, invoice payments, depositing cash in banks and other duties. Warwick Curr, managing director of Alice Springs Helicopters noticed money was missing when Veness left the company in 2017.

The company reported the theft to the police on October 2017 and the authorities started with their investigations. It was found out that Veness spent the money on personal lifestyle goods that included horse equipment.

Although Veness paid back less than half of the money she has stolen, Prosecutor Robson said that the financial, emotional and psychological effects of the crime on the business directors were quite significant.

Alice Springs Helicopters was established in 1992 and begun operating in Alice Springs, Glen Helen Lodge in the West Mac Donnell Ranges and Ross River Resort in East Mac Donnell Ranges. Because of the theft, the company almost went under and they were forced to lay off some of their staff.

If you are in a situation where you are accused of theft, your best option is to hire a theft lawyer who will familiarize himself with the facts and circumstances of your case, the nature of the offense and the courts where the case will be heard. All defenses will be made available so that a satisfactory resolution can be obtained.

Facts About American International School In Thailand

There are many international schools that are present in different countries of the world and not all of them have the same curricula. They all have varied systems that are designed to serve the various foreign nationals in a certain country. There are British, American, Canadian, and other international schools that follow one or a combination of systems in the curriculum that they follow. Further, the majority of these international schools offer the esteemed International Baccalaureate that leads to its diploma.

The various international schools that are in the major capital cities all over the word offer different qualities of education and one of them is the American international school in Thailand that is popular in the country. The school caters to the educational requirements of American people who are working in Thailand either in private companies or in embassies. Amazingly, the American international schools also follow the same curriculum of the local districts.

There are approximately 197 American international schools in about 138 countries that get assistance from the US Government to promote the American system of education for the nationals abroad. The local international schools integrate the American educational system to their curricula. The diversity of the American international school in Thailand makes it on top of the international list of schools that many students benefit from the high quality of education it offers.

In addition, the popular American international school in Thailand is equipped with modern facilities and skilled staff with different excellent educational backgrounds that address the different needs of the students.

International American schools are built and designed to offer a basic curriculum that trains and prepares the students to enroll in universities and colleges in the US. In reality, though, there is no American curriculum that is ever followed in an American international school since each district and state in the United States has its own standards and makes its decisions apart from anyone. However, despite the shortage of uniformity in the American educational program, there are still common practices and themes that are followed by teachers providing the American style of learning abroad.

The influx of many international schools in different countries of the world provides better choices to parents and students who want to get the best education they need that suits their personal needs.

Bangkok Welcomes New Observation Deck

There are many buildings in Thailand including family hotels in Bangkok which cements the city’s reputation as a budding metropolitan. There are tall buildings everywhere in the capital that developers are aiming to beat the tallest ones in order to create a new milestone. For MahaNakhon, the completion of the observation deck by the developer Buro Ole Scheerenmeans they have bagged the title of the second tallest building in the entire kingdom.

MahaNakhom, a local name pertaining to great metropolis, is composed of 77 storeys. It takes a pixilated form and the design has cuboid cutaways which continue upward in order to complete its facades.

According to Ole Scheeren who is Buro Ole Scheeren’s principal, the main idea for the construction of the skyscraper is to embody the city life in Bangkok and showcase it in the form of a tower which exudes a dramatic effect with a movement that spirals.

The building of MahaNakhon, with a final height of 314 meters, took home the title of the tallest building in Thailand when it was first launched in 2015. A residential tower with height higher than one meter was then constructed which snatched the title away from the skyscraper.

At the top of the building is an observation deck with glass floors. This gives the viewers a chance to see the entire city of Bangkok in 360 views.

Scheeren said that the observation deck at the very top of the building was intended to be used by the public so that human activity is not only at the ground floor but at the entire length of the skyscraper from bottom up to the top.

At the beginning of the project, it was intended to be an integral part of the city as well as the public and the creation of the observation deck was a testament to that proclamation.

The observation deck called Skytray can be visited by guests at family hotels in Bangkok which gives them direct view of the ground which is over 300 meters from the top. The entire glass platform’s dimension is 4.5 meters by 17.5 meters.

Phuket Earning A Ton From Cruise Ships

For people who are planning to go cruising on their next vacation might have a Phuket yacht charter in mind. This is not surprising as the tourism industry in the area continues to boom. Recently, Phuket welcomed into their island two different cruise ships that departed from Singapore. On board are about 8,000 passengers and they docked at Patong. With this, the island was able to earn approximately 31 million baht on each day.

The tourists were welcomed by Sanit Sriwihok who is the vice governor of Phuket, representatives from the Phuket Office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand along with marine officers of the island. The two cruise ships are Mariner of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas and both of them are under Royal Caribbean International.

It was early morning when the cruise ships anchored into the shores of Phuket and it was already 9 in the evening when they left. The beach on the island was crowded that day because of the tourists coming down from the ship. The local vendors were able to earn a lot from the influx of tourists along with the happy taxi services that are based in Patong.

According to Vice Governor Sanit, Phuket was able to benefit greatly from the arrival of the two cruise ships. During the initial calculation of the office, every passenger was able to spend about 4,000 baht which means the total revenue would be approximately 31.2 million in baht.

The vice governor along with other officials got an invitation to go onboard for a tour of the cruise ships. They were able to see exceptional amenities such as water parks, swimming pools, basketball courts among many others. They were also able to witness a variety of activities on board including the dining services, SeaPlexM, FlowRider Surf Simulator and a skydiving experience through the Ripcord by iFly.

Just like a guest of the Phuket yacht charter, they were also able to visit the control room and talk with the onboard crew. Vice Governor said that majority of the tourists are Singaporeans and foreign nationals.
