The 43-year-old marketing executive was fined the maximum $1,000 by Community Court judge May Mesenas on Friday. He had earlier pleaded guilty to hurting his son at their home on Sept 15, 2006. The boy suffered multiple bruises in his forehead, left arm and legs and several patches over his neck and back of his left shoulder. The accused had returned home and found the victim and his six-year-old brother misbehaving. When he questioned them and did not get a proper response, he slapped the victim in his face. He picked him up by his armpits and threw him against a wardrobe in the room. He also later threw the boy against a wall and up against the ceiling. The incident came to light two days later when a teacher noticed bruises on the victim's brother, whom the accused had also caused hurt to. The accused's lawyer K. Mathialahan said his client had been receiving counselling and treatment and attended eight sessions at the Centre for Promoting Alternatives to Violence (Pave) at Ang Mo Kio. Counsel said though the accused had a problem with anger management, he loved his children and had done everything possible to ensure he did not hurt the boys again. http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking%2BNew...ory_277817.html

Apollo posted a topic in Lite & EZDirty secret: 10% toilet users don't wash their hands [/color] Monday, 17 December , 2007, 10:17 Singapore: A stakeout of Singapore's public toilets revealed a dirty secret - 10 per cent of the users did not wash their hands, a news report said. Despite the city-state's zeal for hygiene and proper behaviour in loos, 75 out of 792 people did not wash up after using the toilets, The Sunday Times said. Those caught dry-handed included professionals, food preparation staff, housewives and students of both genders. Some told the newspaper they washed only after "big business" and "never thought of washing after urinating". Other reasons for not washing included the general cleanliness of toilets, not knowing how to use the automatic taps, lack of time, and apathy towards germs. "Even those who washed their hands did not do so thoroughly," the report said. Out of 717 who washed, only 134 used soap and 66 washed only one hand. The Restroom Association of Singapore has distributed 2,000 posters to schools and public toilets on the correct way to wash hands and is launching a programme next year including roadshows. The newspaper check coincided with an outbreak of food poisoning that affected 153 people after eating PrimaDeli bakery's chocolate cakes. The salmonella enteritidis detected causes fever, diarrhoea, vomiting and pain in abdominal. The factory has been closed during sanitising and so have the franchises. http://sify.com/news/fullstory.php?id=14576614
