  5. After years of setting the standard for quality and reliability, Japanese brand autos have dropped below the industry average, according to a new report by J.D. Power and Associates. The latest Initial Quality Study, which ranks brands based on consumer surveys after owning a vehicle for three months, shows the collective results of Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Subaru are not keeping pace with the industry as a whole and the Korean auto brands, in particular. "It's not that the Japanese models are all getting worse, but this shows they are not improving as fast as their competitors," said Renee Stephens, vice president of U.S. automotive quality at J.D. Power. "This is a clear shift in the quality landscape." http://www.cnbc.com/id/102766497

  7. Restricting the foreign workers through DRCs, reduction in MYEs and raising worker levies are causing massive tsunamis in the construction industry as we speak. Guess those waiting to get their dream homes will be growing taller by the day... From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/forum-...growth-20130321 More targeted approach needed in moderating population growth Published on Mar 21, 2013 THE labour crunch faced by the construction industry is worrying ("BTO flat buyers face longer wait amid labour and supply strains"; Monday). The backlash against the increasing number of foreigners arises mainly from Singaporeans' concerns over the limited supply of housing, overcrowded public transportation, competition for jobs and the dilution of the Singaporean identity. Workers in the construction industry generally stay in dormitories, get ferried to and from their workplaces and, except on weekends, travel during off-peak hours. They also work in industries that few Singaporeans are interested in. Not being on the front line, they do not dilute our social texture much. We have had foreign workers in our construction industry since the 1980s - when Thai workers formed the mainstay - such that they are already pretty much ingrained in the Singapore psyche. So this group of foreign workers does not seem to be the cause of the push-back that we have observed. On the contrary, reducing their numbers ironically exacerbates the very source of our angst, which is that housing supply is not meeting the increasing demand. And how would reducing their numbers impact the building of our public transport infrastructure like MRT lines and roads, another source of angst? Shouldn't we be more targeted when moderating population growth, and not address the issue with such broad brush strokes such that it becomes counterproductive to what we are trying to achieve?

  8. currently have abt 10yrs accounting and internal controls experience; possess Accounting degree and spent 4 yrs in Big4. Thinking of making a career switch to a Compliance Managerial position in the financial industry but have no experience in the financial industry. Hence I reckon it will not be easy for me since i do not have qualifying experience and educational background. Do you know of any external courses (maybe duration 1-yr which allows me to attend courses in weekends; as weekdays need to work OT late) that i can take to obtain the relevant educational requirements? And would anyone know what's the typical salary of a Compliance Manager in the financial industry? thanks for the advice in advance
  9. Taking the shine off ambulance unit's glow 13 Feb 2012 Straits Times LAST SEPTEMBER, I was referred to 995 when I called 999 for an ambulance to ferry my wife to Gleneagles Hospital. Soon, an ambulance from Civic Ambulance Services, a member of the Nightingale Group, arrived. The team arrived at my unit - on the seventh floor, with no lift landing - with a wheelchair but my wife couldn't sit as she was in pain. This angered the crew, one of whom raised his voice when I requested that they bring the stretcher trolley up to the sixth floor. Both the crew members refused, claiming it was impossible although I had witnessed an ambulance team doing so previously. Finally, one of the crew members brought the stretcher and trolley up. The three of us tried lifting my wife but it was difficult. They ignored my request to wait while my daughter sought our neighbour's assistance. In the end, we managed to take her down, but after a trying time. The crew showed no civic-mindedness or compassion even remotely worthy of the group's name - Nightingale. MediaCorp's current Channel 8 series Rescue 995 prompted this recollection. The creators do not seem to have done their homework before promoting 995 rescue teams in such a glowing light.

  10. President Ong Teng Cheong (Asiaweek, March 10, 2000): "in January 1986 I did sanction a strike, the first for about a decade. It was in the shipping industry where the management was taking advantage of the workers. I did not even tell the cabinet about sanctioning the strike. And some of them were angry with me about that. The minister for trade and industry was very angry, his officers were very upset. They had calls from America, asking what happened to Singapore? -- we are non-strike. I said: if I were to inform the cabinet or the government they would probably stop me from going ahead with the strike. It only lasted two days. Then all the issues were settled. It showed that management was just trying to pull a fast one. So I believe what I did was right."

    how many months bonus did you get this year (2010)?
  12. Sat, Feb 20, 2010 AFP TOKYO - The Japanese auto industry suffered a fresh blow to its reputation Thursday as the transport ministry announced the recall of 4,000 Isuzu trucks, after Toyota said it was checking a fault with its top model. Isuzu Motors, which is part owned by Toyota Motor Corp., was to recall the 4,286 natural-gas powered trucks in Japan from Friday, due to a natural-gas fuel leak that could result in fires in the cab, the transport ministry said. Toyota is facing a new US probe into complaints of steering problems with its Corolla, the world's best-selling car, in a fresh setback to the crisis-hit auto giant's efforts to restore trust in its brand. The Japanese maker, already recalling more than eight million cars worldwide over defects linked to more than 30 deaths, said Wednesday it was looking into the issue and would recall the Corolla if it found a dangerous flaw. Another recall would deal a heavy blow to efforts by the world's biggest automaker to bounce back from a string of safety issues and criticism that it was slow to recall potentially dangerous vehicles. The iconic company, whose global expansion pushed it past General Motors in 2008 as world number one, is facing a litany of complaints ranging from unintended acceleration to brake failure and steering problems. Now Washington has launched an investigation into the 2009 and 2010 model Corollas over the steering issues, a US Transportation Department official told AFP on condition of anonymity. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was expected to officially announce the probe -- involving up to 500,000 vehicles -- as early as Thursday. "It's just one piece of bad news after another. We don't know what will come next," said Shigeru Matsumura, an auto analyst at SMBC Friend Research Center. Investors fear Toyota "hasn't hit the bottom of the crisis yet," he said. "The situation is so bad we can't even forecast what sales and earnings will be in the next quarter," warned Matsumura. Toyota shares lost 0.59 percent to 3,360 yen Thursday. The stock has plunged about 20 percent since January 21 in response to the mass recalls, which have triggered fears for the brand image of the whole of corporate Japan. US authorities on Tuesday demanded that Toyota hand over documents to prove it did not drag its feet in recalling the vehicles once it learnt about defects that can lead to unintended acceleration. There have been more than 160 complaints to US authorities since 2009 about the steering of the Corolla, the world's most popular car with global sales of more than 30 million since the first version was launched in the 1960s. The 2009-2010 Corolla is among the models involved in Toyota's earlier recalls to fix the accelerator problem. The number of complaints alleging deaths related to unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles has surged to at least 34 since the company announced on January 26 it was suspending sales of eight models in the United States. President Barack Obama's Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has vowed "to hold Toyota's feet to the fire" to make sure its cars are safe. The company faces dozens of lawsuits in the United States alleging Toyota was too slow to act on the problems. Experts say the legal action could potentially cost the company billions of dollars. In a bid to prevent runaway car crashes, Toyota announced Wednesday that it would fit all new models with a system to cut engine power when the driver steps on the accelerator and brake pedals at the same time. The US Congress on Thursday invited Toyota president Akio Toyoda to testify on the safety of the company's cars, despite his insistence that he would not appear. The Toyota family scion, who is notoriously publicity-shy, signaled on Wednesday that he would skip a hearing by US lawmakers next week about the company's mass vehicle recalls and insisted that that his regional chief was well-equipped for any testimony to Congress. But he said he might reconsider if formally invited by lawmakers, prompting US Representative Edolphus Towns on Thursday to write his letter to Toyoda, in which he requested a response by 5:00 pm (2200 GMT) Friday. "There is widespread public concern regarding reports of sudden unintended acceleration in Toyota motor vehicles," wrote Towns, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, in the letter noting "growing public concern" about Toyota cars. "To help clarify this situation, I am inviting you to testify at a hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform." Congress is planning to hold at least three congressional hearings to examine Toyota's handling of the massive safety recall.

  15. The U.S. Senate failed on Thursday night to reach a last-ditch compromise to bail out automakers, effectively killing any chance of congressional action this year. The $14 billion legislation officially died in the Senate late on Thursday after supporters failed to get enough support in a procedural vote. http://www.cnbc.com/id/28185890 More good times ahead......
  16. Taken from the New Paper column by Doc Money. I have said it before, auto insurance is more like protection money that hawkers paid gangsters in the yesteryears so that they can keep running their food business. We are paying protection money for "protection".
  17. In the USA, most car buyers, especially used car buyers depend on the Blue Book for a fair and just estimate of what they are paying for their car. Why Singapore don't have? Protectionism of industry? http://www.kbb.com/

  19. Got my Mechanical degree 2 yrs ago. Would like to find out which industry is willing to pay an engineer 3.5k? Let me know which compy and I can apply. Cheers.
  20. Frankly, I've grown tired of those so called fake 'well to do' industries. So far, the much sought after industries like IT, Engineering (some specialization), etc are not doing well even when most will have the impression that they're doing well. What are the industries that are really doing well? Doing well meaning good $$ with less effort, more jobs where competition is less. Sick of those people who just say good cos they 'heard' from somewhere.

    Good diagram to depict the various automobile manufacturer group. I reckon it is a bit outdated, noting that ROVER and MG has been taken over by a Chinese Group, LOTUS is now owned by Proton, etc.
