    News: falling windows

    I thought 10 years ago, all HDB die die must change stainless steel screws. Many even kena summoned for not changing in time. So by right all new HDB n condos should be using stainless steels screw by now. How the 85% slipped thru inspections? AsiaOne Monday, Jun 04, 2012 More than 70 per cent of all fallen windows incidents are due to poor window maintenance, and at least 85 per cent of casement windows fell as a result of failing to retrofit the windows with stainless steel rivets. These were the findings of the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Housing & Development Board (HDB). In a joint statement, the two governmental bodies advised homeowners to check and maintain their windows once every six months, and repairing them if necessary, to minimise incidents of fallen windows. According to BCA, there were 35 cases of fallen windows from January to May this year, compared to the 20 cases during the same period in 2011 and 2010. All windows are subjected to wear and tear and may detach and fall when window parts become loose or defective. To counter this problem, homeowners are advised to follow three simple steps: For casment windows, they should 1) check that the fasteners are not rusty or loose 2) clean and lubricate joints or movable parts 3) change all rivets from aluminium to stainless steel For sliding windows, homeowners should 1) check that the safety stoppers and/or angle strips are in place or not damaged 2) clean the tracks and ensure the window panels can slide smoothly 3) change worn-out safety stoppers and angle strips BCA and HDB have also been stepping up efforts to create greater awareness of the importance of window safety. Besides the biannual Window Safety Campaign on June 6 and December 12, BCA and HDB are also reaching out to educate the community through roving exhibitions on windows safety. To further encourage residents to check and maintain their windows, toolkits for window maintenance are also given out during the exhibitions. BCA will also be carrying out windows inspections at both private and HDB estates to reinforce the importance of regular window maintenance. Under the law, homeowners or tenants could face a fine of up to $10,000 and/or receive a jail term of up to one year if a window falls due to lack of maintenance. In addition, if any fallen casement window is found with aluminium rivets, they can also face a further penalty of a $5,000 fine and/or jail term of up to six months, for failing to retrofit the window with stainless steel rivets. A list of BCA-approved window contractors and window maintenance tips can be found at http://www.bca.gov.sg/windows_safety and http://www.hdb.gov.sg/windows_safety. rchia@sph.com.sg
  7. Sexual jihad is a controversial practice of women within some Wahhabist groups allegedly offering themselves in sexual comfort roles to fighters for the establishment of Islamic state. Definition in wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_jihad Disturbing, but we should all be aware of the power of these radical groups. Somehow, the ISIS is able to brainwash these girls to become sexual objects for the ISIS fighters. Interesting talk show on the topic of sexual jihad. http://www.straitstimes.com/news/asia/south-east-asia/story/isis-luring-young-girls-around-the-world-join-its-terror-ranks-20150 PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Malaysian police are on the alert for a new tactic by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria to lure young girls from around the world to join its ranks. Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division's principal assistant director Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the militant group was trying to lure girls as young as 14 and 15 to the ranks for sex jihad, among other activities. "We will not allow them to be exploited by IS or any other terror groups. "We are pooling our resources to ensure that these children do not fall into the trap," he told The Star on Sunday. Stressing that the division was monitoring the situation closely, SAC Ayob Khan advised parents to be more wary of their children's activities. "These young girls can easily be influenced by the militants via social media, especially Facebook. "So, parents, please play your part by monitoring your children's activities," he said. SAC Ayob Khan said that although the division had managed to thwart seven Malaysian women from going to Syria to join the militants since last year, seven others had managed to go there, adding that most of the women were in their 20s. "The youngest so far is the 14-year-old who was arrested last week," he said. The girl was nabbed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport while attempting to head to Cairo, purportedly to marry a student there before going to Syria. SAC Ayob Khan said the latest arrest reflected the IS' worrying trend to brainwash and enlist youngsters from around the world into joining its terror ranks. Britain's Scotland Yard is now looking for three teenage girls who are believed to be travelling to Syria via Turkey to join the ISIS. They are Shamima Begum, 15, who could be using the name of Acklina Begum, and 16-year-old Kadiza Sultana. The third girl, 15, has not been named at the request of her family. Their friend, also a 15-year-old, is said to have joined the militants in December. In November, a 19-year-old Dutch girl was brought home by her mother after marrying an ISIS fighter in Syria. Earlier on Sunday, Deputy Defence Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri said there were some people in the country who were influenced by the activities of militant groups. "Their ability to recruit young people for their false struggle is worrying. To date, there have been several of our young people who not only joined them in IS territories as supporters but also became directly involved in military activities such as suicide bombing. "Going by the experience of neighbouring countries, we should also give IS serious attention," he said. He gave the assurance that police and military intelligence units were monitoring militant groups and would not let them grow to the point where they could threaten the security of the nation. He said parents should always monitor their children's activities to prevent them from getting involved in terror groups like the ISIS. - See more at: http://www.straitstimes.com/news/asia/south-east-asia/story/isis-luring-young-girls-around-the-world-join-its-terror-ranks-20150#sthash.IEyoIzZx.dpuf -------------------------

    Something Falling Overhead In Next Few Days

    from Yahoo : GOCE satellite set to crash down to Earth in coming days, but experts aren't sure where it will land A European space satellite that has been mapping the Earth’s gravitational field is set to crash down to Earth in the coming days, and it could provide a “real treat” for space watchers. But could GOCE (pronounced “GO-chay”), which is set to make an “uncontrolled entry” into the atmosphere, present a risk to anyone on the ground? “For the most part, these uncontrolled re-entries are the norm,” Space.com’s Tariq Malik told Yahoo News in a phone interview. “It’s not so much that we’ve been lucky to not get hit by one as it is the planet is so big.” The European Space Agency does not know exactly when GOCE, short for Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer, will crash to Earth, and experts there don't know exactly where it will land. But the general consensus is that it will re-enter Earth’s atmosphere sometime between Friday and Monday. “It’s rather hard to predict where the spacecraft will re-enter and impact,” the ESA’s Rune Floberghagen told the New York Times. “Concretely our best engineering prediction is now for a re-entry on Sunday, with a possibility for it slipping into early Monday.” And if all goes well, people may be able to watch the satellite safely enter the atmosphere and explode into a fireball of smaller fragments. “The one thing I’m really wondering about is where the re-entry might be visible from,” Malik said. “It’s very instructive to watch this stuff burn up. From the ground, it’s like watching a giant fireball. If that happens, viewers on the ground could really get a treat.” Watch your head as it might fall onto you .... Wonder where is a nice spot to watch the re-entry, Mount Faber or Telok Blangah Height garden ...

  11. The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) said it will be zeroing in on housing estates where there had been cases of falling windows, for future inspections. BCA has been conducting windows inspections at private and HDB estates since 2006. This comes as the number of falling windows shot up 75 per cent in the first five months of the year. There were 35 cases of falling windows between January and May, compared to 20 in the same period last year. The number of fallen windows is on the rise, with 57 cases last year, up from 50 in 2010. The BCA's Building Plan and Management Group Deputy Director, Jeremy Tan said seven in 10 cases were due to poor maintenance. "For BCA, every fallen window is a serious incident. However, since 2004 there has been seven fallen windows incidents which have caused injury. Moving forward, we would like to encourage the public to periodically maintain their windows to ensure their window safety." Most of these cases involved casement windows which are attached to frames by hinges. 85 per cent of casement windows fell off because homeowners did not replace aluminium rivets with stainless steel ones. BCA and HDB said they have stepped up efforts to raise awareness, with 10 roving exhibitions on window safety planned for this year, compared to just one last year. Toolkits will also be distributed to residents to help them check their windows. The kits comprise of a mirror to help them check if their window screws are loose; a brush, and a bottle of oil to help them clean and lubricate joints and moveable parts. Homeowner Colin Khoo said the extra education efforts would help. "I think it's about proper education but I think sometimes, generally, windows we always believe that it's a very sturdy piece of equipment and nothing can happen and so over the many years, people tend to take it for granted that this construction is of sturdiness, so it's just being careful and being more aware I think at the end of the day about doing your window checks. And I think generally what BCA recommends is do it every half a year." Under the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act, homeowners or tenants could be fined up to S$10,000, and jailed up to one year, if a window falls due to lack of maintenance. Those found to have casement windows with aluminium rivets also face a further penalty of S$5,000 and six months jail, for failing to retrofit their windows with stainless steel rivets.

  17. A commercial van (stationary and not driven) was parked along a 2-lanes 2-ways road doing loading/unloading of cargo. While my car was passing alongside, an object fell off and hit my car sustaining dents and stretches on the car body. Van supervisor acknowledged the accident and signed a written note for cost of repair at his appointed workshop. However, he refused to honour the written agreement, claiming it was not a car-to- van accident but rather a careless workmanship from his workers. Can I claim repair cost from the van insurance company or claim for public liability from that company insurance? Should the company have not been insured, then I need to engage a lawyer to claim against owner of the company. Appreciate your comment

    Rocks falling on Cars

    Just got a rock attack down on my car today. Chipped paint and left 3 distinct white spots and dents on my car roof. A rock was still left sitting near the rear windscreen. Wonder what in the heaven's name cause those rocks to fall from the sky, or was it some crazy children who like throwing rocks from nearby highrise buildings. Any of you guys experienced that? How much will it cost to repair and re-paint the spots? My car is not white, the white spots stands out a lot... size of toe nails... really heart pain...
