  1. Rumors? Test balloons. MLMLWML Rule against this, implemented in 2012 to address complaints that it was driving up car premiums, said to be under review Christopher Tan Senior Transport Correspondent Taxi operators may soon be allowed to compete with car buyers for certificates of entitlement again - a move which may fuel competition for COEs. Regulations banning cab firms from bidding for COEs were put in place in 2012 to address a longstanding gripe among car buyers and sellers that taxis were dri-ving up premiums and providing unfair competition. The Straits Times understands that those regulations are being reviewed, and it is possible that they could be reversed. The LTA, however, said that it would not comment on "market speculation". Even though taxis were almost always larger cars - which should rightfully be competing for COEs in Category B (cars above 1,600cc) - they were lumped with Category A (cars up to 1,600cc) in the past. It was not uncommon then for taxi companies to make up one-third of the bids submitted during a tender. With the removal of taxis from COE bidding, put in place by former transport minister Lui Tuck Yew, cab operators have been paying Category A's prevailing quota premium (PQP, or a moving average of past premiums). The move eased pressure on Category A almost immediately. But two years after the rule change, private-hire operators such as Uber and Grab started to grow their fleets and, unlike taxis, were allowed to bid for COEs. The pressure on prices eased when Uber pulled out of Singapore last year, but started to build up this year with the arrival of Indonesian ride-hailing firm Gojek. With Grab's fleet expansion, and smaller players like Ryde and Tribecar joining the fray, premiums are once again heading north. The Straits Times understands that allowing taxi firms to bid for COEs again could form part of an industrywide review of taxi and private-hire operations. Results of the review, conducted by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), are expected by the middle of this year. Industry players said they have been hearing about the possible change, although no one has been informed officially. Trans-Cab managing director Teo Kiang Ang said such a move would not be desirable as it is likely to drive up COE prices, translating into higher business costs. Premier Taxis managing director Lim Chong Boo said companies would have to make "strategic changes to the business model" if they are allowed to bid again. Motor traders expect the move, if implemented, to displace more private car buyers. For the past few years, private-hire operators have edged out thousands of car buyers with aggressive fleet expansions. Yet, many of the cars they bought lie idle. Mr Ang Hin Kee, adviser to the National Taxi Association and the National Private Hire Vehicles Association, concurred. "We have a zero car growth policy. This is not a very smart way of doing things," he said when asked what he thought about the massive idle fleet, estimated to number more than 2,000. Mr Ang, who is also deputy chairman of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport, had called for a cap on the taxi and private-hire car population. He pointed out that there are about 130,000 taxi and private-hire vocational licence holders, and too many drivers vying for commuters. Mr Ang said the age requirement for new taxi and private-hire drivers could also be raised to prevent an oversupply of drivers.
  2. Talking about security lapses at our border, I am sure most of us have seen many foreign-registered cars with dark-tinted glass driving around on our roads. But the question is why are they are allowed in the first place since this is supposed to be illegal? Though they are foreign cars, they must adhere to our traffic rules & regulations.....

    I rem vaguely in SAF Military law, its not allowed...... Lunch time, saw this stall with a guy working there, wearing SAF uniform with Lieutenant rank. I can confirm that the guy is local, not a FT trying to look like us. And i'm not disclosing this stall location. This guy must have his own reason for having to wear uniform while working in food stall. He's probably doing ICT now, and maybe got to work at same time.

  12. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/forum-...llowed-20130301 CHILDCARE CENTRES Should sick kids be allowed in? Published on Mar 01, 2013 MY HUSBAND and I heard from our friends that children sent to childcare centres tend to fall ill frequently, at least in the initial months. As first-time parents, we are concerned and anxious about sending our daughter to a childcare centre. We visited three centres and inquired about their guidelines on admitting children who are unwell. All three centres said they would admit a sick child as long as he does not run a fever higher than 38 deg C. The child would be admitted even if he were having a runny nose or cough, or on medication such as antibiotics. The centres said they were running a business; if they adhered to the Government's "grey" guidelines and barred a sick child from class, working parents would be upset. They would then remove their children from the centres and put them in more "tolerant" centres. We were appalled to hear this. Wouldn't everyone benefit if parents and centres practised social responsibility by not allowing a sick child into the class, where he might spread the illness to other children? Aren't parents granted childcare leave to look after their sick children? I hope to hear from the relevant authorities on the health guidelines for childcare centres. Helen Chong Xu Rong (Ms)
  13. :o From AsiaOne: http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/...227-405125.html Incendiary Beijing restaurant sign triggers online fury AFP Wednesday, Feb 27, 2013 HANOI - A sign at a Beijing restaurant barring citizens of nations involved in maritime disputes with China - along with dogs - has triggered a wave of online outrage among Vietnamese and Filipinos. The Beijing Snacks restaurant near the Forbidden City, a popular tourist spot, has posted a sign on its door reading "This shop does not receive the Japanese, the Philippines, the Vietnamese and dog(s)." Photographs of the controversial sign have gone viral in Vietnamese-language forums and featured heavily in Philippine newspapers and websites on Wednesday. Vietnam's state-run Tuoi Tre newspaper ran a story saying the sign had "ignited online fury". It claimed many Vietnamese feel this is another example of Chinese "extreme nationalism that deserves to be condemned". "It's not patriotism, it's stupid extremism," Sy Van wrote in Vietnamese in a comment under the story, published on the paper's website. The sign provoked tens of thousands of posts on Vietnamese social networking sites and newspaper comment threads. Filipinos greeted the photo with a mixture of fury and amusement. "Blatant racism at Beijing Restaurant," journalist Veronica Pedrosa wrote in one widely-shared tweet, while Facebook user Rey Garcia used a comment thread on a news site to retort: "Who cares, they almost cook everything, even foetus and fingernails." Vietnam and the Philippines are locked in a longstanding territorial row with China over islands in the South China Sea. China and Japan have a separate acrimonious dispute over islands in the East China Sea. Philippine Foreign Department spokesman Raul Hernandez told reporters in Manila Wednesday that the Beijing restaurant sign was simply one "private view" about the maritime dispute. The photos were originally posted on Facebook. The sign's wording is particularly inflammatory as it recalls China's colonial era, when British-owned establishments barred Chinese from entering. A sign supposedly reading "No Dogs and Chinese allowed" became part of Communist propaganda after it was said to have hung outside a park in Shanghai when Western powers controlled parts of China. It has become part of Chinese folklore and featured in the 1972 Bruce Lee film "Fists of Fury" - but many historical experts say no such sign ever existed. The controversial Beijing sign was still in place Wednesday, according to the restaurant owner who gave only his surname of Wang. "No officials have contacted me about it. This is my own conduct," Wang told AFP. . - See more at: http://www.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/...h.gelT1fKI.dpuf

  22. I think that upon ORD, NSmen should be allowed to take their guns home along with a container of sealed ammo. If a crisis really happens, everyone can come out shooting. Of course there needs to be some checks and protocols in place. For example, people cannot carry a rifle in public with a magazine inserted. Some people will worry that the rifles will be used to commit crimes. But if somebody is really intent on commiting a crime, even a kitchen knife will do. In fact a knife is even better than a rifle because it is easier to conceal. SAFRA can also have a rifle range so NSmen can practise their marksmanship. No, I do not need to take medication and if I am not wrong, IDF people can bring their guns home.
