From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1204325/1/.html Waste collection fees expected to rise By Joanne Chan | Posted: 29 May 2012 2138 hrs SINGAPORE: Households in Singapore can expect to gradually pay more to have their trash collected. The National Environment Agency (NEA) said the move is aimed at uplifting the waste collection industry, which is struggling with rising operating costs while it grapples with improving service standards. Industry players said these challenges have been made harder by government contracts that have locked in fees for the past seven to eight years, with no provision for adjustments. With several contracts up for renewal over the next few years, the NEA, which manages the public waste collection scheme, is looking to reshape the industry. For the purpose of waste management, Singapore is currently divided into nine sectors, served by four companies. This will be reduced to six sectors, to help companies achieve economies of scale. Andrew Tan, CEO of the National Environment Agency, said: "This in turn will translate into greater affordability and at the same time, giving opportunities for the waste collectors to invest in the capital, in the training of their workforce and also the equipment needed to do a good job in terms of waste collection." Chairman of the Waste Management and Recycling Association, Guah Eng Hock, also pointed out that waste collection companies are required in their contracts to have a recyclable sorting facility in each sector. He said that with the larger sectors, companies will be able to enjoy greater economies of scale. A standard waste collection fee will also be introduced. Today, households pay as little as S$4.03 per HDB flat, or as high as S$22.50 for a landed home. Prices also differ between estates. For example, HDB flats in the city area currently pay S$4.03, while those in Pasir-Ris and Tampines fork out S$6.87. The difference in pricing is due to separate contracts being called for each sector, subjected to open bidding. Moving forward, all households will pay a "uniform fee" - depending on whether it is an HDB flat or landed property. The fee will be derived from the weighted average of successful tender bids submitted by public waste collectors. The first to come under the new fee structure will be households in Pasir-Ris, Tampines and Bedok. From July, HDB properties in those areas will pay S$7, while landed homes will pay S$23.19. The NEA said households would have had to pay more, if the new uniformed fee structure was not applied. The new uniformed fee structure will be progressively rolled out to the rest of Singapore by 2015. In return for higher fees, waste collection companies will have to meet higher service standards. This includes having quieter and cleaner vehicles, and responding quicker to public feedback. Companies will also have to provide better incentive schemes to encourage households to recycle. Singapore's only landfill on Semakau island is currently at half its capacity, and is expected to run out of space by 2040. Thus, recycling remains a key strategy for managing waste in Singapore and the government hopes that consumers and businesses will start at the source - by sorting their recyclables from other waste. Singapore's recycling rate currently stands at 59 per cent - a long way from its long-term target of 70 per cent. -CNA/ac

  11. http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/debt-collectors-mocked-funan-stallholder?page=0%2C2 Look at the last pic of the debt collection agency boss (wearing red). He look quite happy. Maybe because the publicity of this will help his business? If people owe me money I think I also will engage this Double Ace Agency! They sure go the extra mile! GEMS! PSB should give them award! The face of the Mata (black shirt main pic) makes me smile. His expression is like 'KNS, you play punk limpeh will punch you right on your ear'.

  14. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U189SwhPXKI The death of Paul Walker, star of the Fast and Furious films has been an unmitigated tragedy. We know him from his films, but we gearheads also know him as one of us. In October last year, Matt Farah, host of The Smoking Tire, toured the seriously impressive car collection, which serves as a reminder of just what a passionate fan of driving and cars he was. One of the great things about cars is that they offer you a window into who someone is and what they care about. And over the course of this eight-minute video, we get to see what Paul Walker loved about cars. The literally dozens of Saleen Mustangs hint at a love of unpretentious blue collar speed. I was particularly pleased to see how many of the normally unloved Fox body Mustang’s Walker had. Sure, with that money, he could have bought something faster, newer, and sexier. But no, he chose to be interesting. That personality is on display throughout the collection, whether it’s a rare German sports car like the BMW M1, an old school Mercury two door wagon, or the gorgeous but slow Volvo P1800. It seems that Paul Walker loved cars for their souls. But clearly from the three Porsche GT3s that are scarred from going to war on the track, we know that these cars weren’t simply owned to be looked at. Yes, we should be sad that Mr. Walker is gone, as we should be sad whenever we lose anyone. We should also take a moment, though, to share in something that speaks of passion and joy.
  15. According to BT, more than 30 units booking for Ferrari F12 Berlinetta over the weekend. This definitely reflect so many rich people in SIN today. I am not sure if these are collection or to be driven? Is it easier for corperate tax rebate in SIN??? Probably I understand SIN is one of the most easiest country to do business compare to many.

    Take a look inside Porsche

    [extract] When Porsche first opened its original museum in 1976, it was relatively small in size and it could hold around 20 cars at any given time. In 2009, the company opened a new museum in Zuffenhausen, just next to its headquarters. The new museum is much grander in scope and bigger in scale and the new place could hold 80 exhibits at a given time. To show off the new home of Porsche

    A retiree

    Every person I knew or met who loves cars (or any other vehicle) usually start their passion at an early age and one of the first things that made them love cars are toys or basically, car models. It is the same for me too. I still have the Lamborghini Countach toy model that my parents got me many years ago and my passion for cars have grown stronger ever since. 84 year old Joe DiNovo is a retired mail carrier from Norridge, Illinois, USA who has a collection of 23,000 Matchbox cars and counting. Down in his basement, stacked from floor to ceiling are display cases and boxes of Matchbox cars (and other vehicles) that DiNovo has collected for over 50 years. Many of them are still in their original boxes and/or packaging. Initially, he was a train collector and sold his collection at toy shows. It was during that time that he was exposed to the world of four-wheeled miniature car models and soon began to collect and sell both of them at toy shows. Basically, his collection grew when he could not sell some of the miniature models. When that happens, he would keep them and buy new ones to sell at a later time. This practice continued until all the unsold cars began to stack up and became a collection. His basement is practically filled with all sorts of miniature vehicle models and only one small area is left for the family
