  1. SINGAPORE — Desperate to get into a local university to satisfy his mother, Kieffer Tay Kai Xian altered his polytechnic transcript and submitted the forged documents on two occasions to SIM University. When it was renamed the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) in 2017, as part of its restructure into the country’s sixth autonomous university, Tay applied once more with a doctored transcript. But his lawyer said that he was “under an immense level of stress” from his mother at the time, who allegedly kicked him out of their home for not getting into university. Tay, now 24 years old, was ordered to pay a fine of S$5,500 in a district court on Thursday (Dec 19). He is currently finishing his bachelor’s degree at SIM Global Education in association with the University of Birmingham. He pleaded guilty to one forgery charge, with three others taken into consideration for sentencing. The court heard that he submitted the forged polytechnic certificates from 2016 to 2017 On one occasion, he changed his cumulative grade point average from 1.76 to 2.76 on his Temasek Polytechnic transcript. He thought this would increase his chances of getting into a finance course at SIM University. After submitting the transcript, the university management found that it was doctored and rejected his application. However, he persisted in applying there. In March this year, a management executive at SUSS made a police report, stating that Tay had repeatedly submitted doctored polytechnic certificates in order to gain admission. In mitigation on Thursday, Tay’s lawyer Jeffrey Soh asked for probation to be imposed. Mr Soh described Tay, the only child in his family, as “constantly under his mother’s radar”. “The mother’s intentions in his studies are both altruistic and… worldly at the same time. She must keep up appearances in every way, from the house they live in and the car they drive to the places that they go on holidays,” Mr Soh said. The lawyer also claimed that she has verbally and physically abused Tay and his father for many years. When Tay did poorly in his polytechnic studies, she continuously criticised him for his failures to get good enough grades to get into a “respectable local university”, Mr Soh added. Tay’s father submitted a statutory declaration to the court, where he said his wife was a “very face conscious person” and was frequently violent towards them. “She wanted my son to get into a university partly for his future, but mostly for her to have face in front of friends and relatives,” the elder Tay wrote. In response to Mr Soh, Deputy Public Prosecutor R Arvindren said that Tay should not get probation as he had committed the offences after turning 21. “The reason we had proceeded to charge him in court was due to his repeated forgery actions. This is also not a case where the prosecution is submitting for imprisonment, where the criminal sanctions are much more severe,” the prosecutor added. District Judge Samuel Chua told the father, who was present in court without his wife, that he has arranged for a court counsellor to assist them in improving their relationships. For forgery, Tay could have been jailed up to four years, fined or both.

    Crazy weather in Singapore ?

    Rainy and windy start to December 2019 In the first week of December 2019, the southern South China Sea region including Singapore can expect a monsoon surge lasting from two to four days. The surge is likely to bring cloudy and occasionally windy conditions with periods of widespread moderate to heavy showers over Singapore. The strong northeasterly winds over the South China Sea are forecast to weaken in the second week of December 2019. For the rest of the fortnight, Singapore can expect short-duration moderate to heavy thundery showers in the afternoon on five to seven days. This is due to strong solar heating of land areas coupled with localised convergence of winds. Overall, most parts of Singapore can expect above-normal rainfall in the first fortnight of December 2019.

  7. NEW YORK (AFP) - More than 60 years after his death, movie legend James Dean is set to return to the screen thanks to special effects that recreate his image from old footage and photographs. Dean, who died aged 24 in a car crash in 1955, has been "posthumously cast" in Vietnam War action-drama Finding Jack, the Hollywood Reporter said on Wednesday (Nov 6). Production house Magic City Films obtained the rights to use Dean's image from his family for the screen adaption of Gareth Crocker's 2008 novel. The book tells the story of US military dogs that were deployed and later abandoned in Vietnam. Dean became a global star in the 1950s, acting in Rebel Without A Cause and East Of Eden before his life was cut short, though he has remained a celebrated youth icon and an enduring heartthrob. His part in the new film is as Rogan, described as a secondary lead role. "We searched high and low for the perfect character to portray the role of Rogan, which has some extreme complex character arcs, and after months of research, we decided on James Dean," said co-director Anton Ernst. "We feel very honoured that his family supports us and will take every precaution to ensure that his legacy as one of the most epic film stars to date is kept firmly intact." Dean's image will be created through computer-generated imagery (CGI) using archive footage and photos, while another actor will provide his voice. But the concept was not greeted with universal acclaim, with Captain America star Chris Evans tweeting: "This is awful. Maybe we can get a computer to paint us a new Picasso. "The complete lack of understanding here is shameful." The film, which is to go into production shortly, is due for release next November. Its makers hope the technology will be used to bring other deceased stars back on screen in new roles. https://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/entertainment/actor-james-dean-cast-in-new-movie-64-years-after-his-death maybe next time Bruce Lee will appear in movies again they are trying with James Dean now
