  4. Disgruntled vending machine customer demands S$1 refund from Yeo's, claims can designs too similar source: https://mothership.sg/2020/07/yeos-vending-machine-complaint/ If you've ever hit the wrong button at a vending machine by mistake, you probably know the feeling: stuck with a product you did not want, with no avenue for an exchange or refund. One such incident appears to have happened in Bedok recently. According to a Facebook post by "新加坡眼 Singapore Eye", one disgruntled customer going by the name of "Eddy Eddy" lost S$1 after selecting the wrong drink. "Eddy" had wanted to buy a soy bean drink, but mistakenly selected chrysanthemum tea instead. The reason? The packaging for different products were too similar. A picture, presumably from "Eddy", provided evidence of the similarity. This state of affairs drove the customer to write to the email provided on Yeo's website. The customer's demands were: a refund of S$1 to compensate him for his loss, as well as a change of packaging so that future customers would not find themselves in the same predicament. The original post appears to have been made by Facebook user "Ed Dy", though the contents are not accessible to the public: A later post by "Ed Dy" says that he is "getting both fan mail and hate mail", and that he "didn't know people felt so strongly about Yeo's graphic design". Separately "Ed Dy" also mentions a "boomersona", which possibly refers to a "boomer persona" which is assumed for select online posts. Criticised for not owning mistake While it's not known whether "Eddy" has received a refund, they have certainly received a great deal of feedback from commenters on the post. Many disagreed with the contention that "Eddy" was confused by the packaging: Others urged "Eddy" to accept his part of the blame. As one commenter asked rhetorically, "if you can't defecate, do you blame the toilet bowl?" Others suggested that the incident was an expression of wider social phenomenon: This is the majority of people in Singapore, making complaints over small things, when the problem is their own responsibility, they still want to pin the blame on others. Not all comments unsympathetic "Eddy" found some kindred spirits as well, however. I have also bought wrongly too, just drink Those who managed to put themselves in "Eddy"'s shoes would have found more reason for sympathy in the complaint email: the difficulty of getting the correct spelling for crysmantamium crystantamum crysentamum crysentemeum chrysanthemum. So much effort for this persona. You can see the post here:
  5. 10 handbrake designs and locations that are most unusual source: https://uk.motor1.com/features/432392/10-unusual-handbrake-designs/ Sometimes, a simple manual lever just doesn't cut it. You might be familiar with a well-known phrase that says necessity is the mother of invention. Laws necessitate that automobiles must have some kind of handbrake – whether it's called a parking brake or an emergency brake – and it's often a simple, manually actuated handle located in a vehicle's centre console. Pulling up the handle operates a cable that activates the rear brakes, thus holding the rear wheels in place. That said, creativity is the father of invention, and for reasons that sometimes aren't clear, designers will ditch the simple method of handbrake functionality. The persistent march of technology means we're seeing more electronic handbrakes these days, but whether it's innovative, or clever, or just plain crazy, there plenty of vehicles that nix the simple handbrake concept for something different. This slideshow takes a look at some specific vehicles with out-of-the-ordinary handbrakes, but it also showcases styles and locations that appear on many other models. With that said, jump into the slideshow to see some familiar and unfamiliar ways in which automakers keep cars from moving. The Foot Brake This design isn't unusual at all for Americans, as foot-actuated parking brakes have been common on U.S. vehicles for decades. As seen here on a Toyota Sienna, most foot brakes are simply pressed down into position, then released either with a separate handle, or by pressing the brake lever a second time. Electronic Dials And Buttons Similar to foot pedals, electronic brakes are becoming more common in modern automobiles – much to the bane of enthusiastic drivers wanting to execute neat handbrake turns. Electronic brakes can be anything from a simple toggle switch on the centre console, to basic buttons like one featured here on a Chrysler Pacifica. Single Modern Paddle We're seeing more automakers swapping the basic handle for something more like a paddle or an animal paw. This palm-friendly brake from the Citroen C4 Aircross is mounted in the traditional location at the centre console, but features a button underneath the large handle to release the brake. On The Steering Column Here's Tesla's take on the electronic brake. Instead of a button or a small lever in the console or dash, it's simply part of the car's column-mounted gear selector switch. On The Wrong Side Handbrake placement near the door instead of the centre console is rare. Perhaps best known on the Porsche 944 or Jaguar XJS (pictured here), the location offers a cleaner centre console but can be problematic for drivers wanting to exit the vehicle with the lever engaged. Aircraft Throttle: Part One Mixing aircraft design themes with cars certainly isn't new, and hey, who doesn't want to feel like a fighter pilot behind the wheel? Several vehicles have offered interesting handbrakes that mimic the throttle quadrant of a jet aircraft; the Pontiac Sunbird was famous for this in the 1980s. But the first-generation Ford S-Max MPV featured here continues that theme many years later. Aircraft Throttle: Part Two Not all jet throttles have two levers, and frankly, we also love the quirky Subaru SVX too much to not give it a slide all its own. Mixing the previously seen paddle theme with a throttle-style design, the Subie's handbrake is still one of the coolest of all time. In The Dash: Part One Dash-mounted parking brakes of the non-electronic variety are actually found in a range of vehicles. There are some noteworthy styles that we'll look at individually, starting with the pull-and-twist type seen here in an older Toyota Hilux. In The Dash: Part Two The tiny Renault Twizy EV runabout would be a perfect candidate for an electronic brake, but that consumes electricity. The solution was a manually operated brake mounted low on the dash that operates with an awkward pull/depress action. In The Dash: Part Three Lastly, we arrive at what could be the weirdest parking brake of them all. Naturally, it comes from Citroen, specifically, the GS offered through the 1970s and 1980s. It's another in-dash design but instead of making it a subtle feature, it's mounted prominently in the centre of the dashboard where you'd expect to find a radio. Pull the large handle out to set the brake, and release it by pressing a button.

  7. Chinese win design competition for rebuilding Notre Dame https://www.asiaone.com/world/chinese-win-design-competition-rebuilding-notre-dame Aug 07, 2019 Two Chinese designers, with their work Paris Heart Beat, have won the championship in a design competition for rebuilding Notre Dame Cathedral in France. The competition was launched by GoArchitect, an independent publisher of books based in LA, and it received 226 proposals from 56 countries in all, with over 30,000 people voting during the competition. The two Chinese designers, Cai Zeyu and Li Sibei, both currently work at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Foundation (Chicago, US), and respectively graduated from Tsinghua University and Beijing University of Technology. Three highlights of their design Paris Heart Beat are the Paris Time Capsule, City Kaleidoscope and Mirror Roof. They used magnetic levitation technology to design a time capsule device, which opens every half-century and moves rhythmically up and down, breathing and beating together with the city. This is why the design is called Paris Heart Beat. In addition, people are able to see rose windows inside with the help of the mirror's reflection at the tower, creating a city kaleidoscope. Notre Dame Cathedral has witnessed Paris' history over more than 800 years, and it survived the blaze, Cai and Li said. "Paris Heart Beat carries our expectation of its rebirth." There have been debates on rebuilding Notre Dame Cathedral since the devastating fire tearing through the cathedral in April. Last month, French lawmakers approved a controversial bill to rebuild Notre Dame and French President Emmanuel Macron stated he is not against a "contemporary architectural gesture". Therefore, the original intention of GoArchitect in launching this competition was to call on the French government to be open to any possible proposals, though it is a nongovernmental institution and not officially authorised by any French institutions. Besides Cai and Li's Paris Heart Beat, proposals from five other countries (Canada, Japan, UK and US) made the final round of the competition.

    Facade inspection - new ruling

    http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/housing/industry-gearing-up-for-new-rules-on-facade-checks It is rather amazing that we have introduced so many new products and designs without giving thought to maintenance. now suddenly they expect the lowly maintenance guys to be experts and be able to view defects using binoculars on the facade! Surely these maintenance guys won't know if the product will be flammable or the internal clippers have corroded. I would have hold QP responsible for the design and approving authority to ensure adequate maintenance processes are in placed before approving them. many renown designs were never given thought on maintenance. now it is others to pick up these sh#t.

    Odd HDB design at Kreta Ayer

    I've always wondered about this random HDB block design at Block 5 Banda St in Chinatown... Some floors' staircase landing has a window/opening, while many other don't have. There doesn't seem to be a pattern, and the windows aren't regular as well. As far as I know this is a one-room flat block. Anyone knows why it's designed like that?
  11. Recently my airwave got three dents on the rear door by some stupid idiot who really don't care by opening the door widely. Thru recommendation send to Lye Design and was impressed with his skills and he eliminate all the dents by using steel rod to massage back in shape. Hee.hee, it's like seeing a doctor you have to call for appointment. Lastly, am fully satisfied with his services.

    Fwah! new Nissan Maxima

    Saw the new 2016 Nissan Maxima when I was overseas last week. Didn't know what car it was from afar but when took a closer look, at first thot maybe some new Lexus or Infiniti but was quite stunned that it's the humble Maxima. Gotta admit.....the new design looks very . Looks like Datsun has finally got it's design right. Wonder if it'll come to Sg as the new Teana?

  22. In particular, she took issue with a booklet distributed during the workshop, which she said ”seemed to emphasise and enforce traditional gender roles in a relationship”. Dr Hon did not comment on the contents of the booklet in his letter, saying only that it was a “source of unhappiness”. http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/hwa-chong-design-its-own-workshops-future SINGAPORE — Following feedback from a student that a workshop on managing relationships was sexist in content, Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) said it plans to design its own workshops in the future. In a letter to students and teachers yesterday — a copy of which was seen by TODAY — HCI principal Hon Chiew Weng said the school had concluded its internal investigation into the complaint and found that the facilitators of the workshop in question were ineffective in addressing the participants’ concerns. Earlier this week, HCI student Agatha Tan set off a wave of controversy with a Facebook post on her concerns about the workshop conducted by Focus on the Family Singapore, a vendor appointed by the Ministry for Social and Family Development (MSF). In particular, she took issue with a booklet distributed during the workshop, which she said ”seemed to emphasise and enforce traditional gender roles in a relationship”. Dr Hon did not comment on the contents of the booklet in his letter, saying only that it was a “source of unhappiness”. He pointed out that the feedback from the students was that one facilitator in particular was unable to address their concerns “satisfactorily” when several of them objected to viewpoints that had been raised during a discussion. The workshop, one of several on managing relationships, was held for the HCI students last week. Students who attended a similar workshop held in another venue were happy and the facilitators were professional and qualified their claims, added Dr Hon. These facilitators recognised that the views put forth in class were generalisations that do not apply to everyone and when referring to controversial viewpoints, they were open to alternative explanations and perspectives, he added. He added that the school had previously used the vendor’s services and the students’ feedback had been positive.

    Tyre Design That Won

    http://tinyurl.com/ko5ege5 http://tinyurl.com/bvosxm2 came across the articles above about new tire designs that will not run flat. will you give it a try? the design leaves much to be desired IMHO, but it is the features that is enticing. I wonder how much they will cost if it is brought in locally.
