  2. due to sky high fuel price, have to switch over from Caltex to SPC to earn another 7% discount (Caltex 11% vs SPC 18%) but some friends told me SPC fuel quality is not as good as other world famous brands (Caltex, Shell, mobil etc), FC and performance both are discounted, and if long term using, might shorten engine lifespan is it??

  8. 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

  11. New PSI reporting system to see more days with "moderate" air quality From May 1, Singapore will see more days with the air quality being classified as in the “moderate” range, as concentrations of smaller polluting particles of PM2.5 will be included in the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) readings. "As a result of PM2.5 being incorporated into the PSI, more days will be classified as 'moderate' compared to before, even though the actual concentration of pollutants has not changed. "This is purely due to the integration of the PM2.5 concentrations into the PSI scale," the National Environment Agency (NEA) said in a statement on Tuesday. NEA added that people can carry on normal activity if air quality is in the “good” or “moderate” range and there will be no change to normal routines on the ground. PM2.5 are tiny particles that can travel deep into the respiratory tract, and get embedded in lung tissue. It is currently reported separately from the PSI. Minister for Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan on Tuesday told Parliament that Singapore will move to an integrated air quality reporting index, where PM2.5 will be incorporated into the current PSI as its sixth pollutant parameter. In explaining the change, Dr Balakrishnan said as far as public health is concerned, PM2.5 concentrations are more often a cause for concern. He said the move would also simplify the air quality reporting system. Going forward, he said PM2.5 levels are expected to determine the PSI "almost all the time". Since August 24, 2012, NEA has been reporting 24-hour PM2.5 concentrations alongside the PSI, which was done as the first step in the transition to the new air quality reporting system. NEA will now complete the transition by incorporating the 24-hour PM2.5 concentrations into the PSI. From May 1, the PSI will reflect a total of six pollutants -- sulphur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter (PM10) and fine particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and ozone (O3). The 3-hour PSI will also take into account PM2.5 concentrations. NEA will also publish the 1-hour PM2.5 concentrations every hour. Previously, health advisories issued by the government were based on 24-hour PSI and 24-hour PM2.5, whichever was worse. Under the new air quality reporting system, the health advisory will be based on the new 24-hour PSI as it now directly takes into account PM2.5. NEA said air quality information will be reported every hour from 7am to 11pm during non-haze periods, and around the clock during haze periods. The information will be made available on the NEA website, the haze microsite, NEA Facebook, NEA Twitter and smart phone app, MyENV. NEA will continue to regularly review Singapore's air quality reporting index to ensure that it remains a relevant and useful guide for the public to help plan their daily activities. Dr Balakrishnan also announced the setting up of an International Advisory Panel on transboundary pollution, which will be co-chaired by Professor S Jayakumar and Professor Tommy Koh.

  13. Why is it that reducing waiting and in-vehicle times does not seem to make public transport users happy? The debate on improving public transport service quality and affordability is unending. Suggestions have ranged from having more competition to ensuring efficiency to zero fares and even the nature of public transport itself. These discussions, however, skirt the central issue. A journey by public transport is actually a chain of trips. A trip from an origin to a destination typically consists of walk time to the bus stop or MRT terminal, wait time, in-vehicle time and access time to the final destination. The time of each component will vary by mode, distance travelled, trip purpose (i.e. office commute, shopping, social) and by time of the day. When a transfer between modes is involved, this makes the total time travelling by public transport unattractive compared to travel by car. In recent months, laudable efforts have been made to improve wait and in-vehicle times of bus and MRT rides by increasing the fleet of buses and reducing the time between train arrivals. In 2008, the Land Transport Master Plan (LTMP) stated: "Average public transport journey times will be reduced from 1.7 times of that by car today to 1.5 times by 2020 to make public transport more competitive relative to cars. "Our end in mind is to have a public transport system that will be so attractive that users with choice, i.e. those who can have access to cars, will say that 'my other car is a bus or train'." The 2013 LTMP focuses on addressing the four main components of the typical public transport journey - the first and last kilometre, wait time and in-vehicle time. This is being done through improvements such as seamless connectivity from home to terminal, more public transport infrastructure and investments in operating assets. A 2001 study by Professor Mark Wardman at the University of Leeds' Institute for Transport Studies in the UK has shown that walking and waiting times are perceived as being between two and three times more annoying than in-vehicle time regardless of the level of traffic congestion. These assessments will vary across circumstances, such as a journey to work versus participation in leisure activities. It will also vary when compared with in-vehicle time by car, bus or the MRT. The number of transfers, whether involving crossing a bridge or a long walk in-between, will also influence the way people perceive walk and wait times. So will the extent to which access involves pedestrian delays at junctions and crossings. In fact, the level of irritation caused by walk and wait times can be 1.5 to 8 times the perceived value of in-vehicle time. The point, therefore, is to view accessibility and mobility as a total experience. Minimising in- vehicle and wait times is just one aspect of the experience. It involves making the trip a pleasant one from the time a person steps out of the home to the time he arrives at his final destination. Making public transport the backbone of a city's mobility requires giving the public transport user priority. It entails minimising pedestrian delays and creating walkway connectivity within the city. But it will also mean making it more costly to drive into and park within the Central Business District. Electronic Road Pricing and limited parking facilities will lead to a more efficient allocation of scarce city space. Prioritising public transport may mean the development of "closed urban areas" where buildings are interconnected by sheltered pedestrian walkways. Walking - and perhaps cycling - will be a safe, healthy, viable and a delightful experience. Within the closed urban area, cars will not get priority. The "first and last kilometre" will then be an attractive link in the public transport trip. The 2013 Land Transport Master Plan and the just-released Fare Review Mechanism Committee Report are steps in the right direction if effectively implemented. Further, the Fare Review Mechanism Committee Report, in addressing the needs of the economically disadvantaged, enhances accessibility to jobs and centres of human capital development such as institutions of education. This together with real-time public information about public transport schedules might just nudge car users at the margin to use public transport. It might also lead to the spreading of the peak period when commuters choose to travel at alternative times, ease human congestion at MRT stations and bus terminals, and make the journey by public transport a pleasant experience. -- ST FILE PHOTO by Anthony Chin The writer is associate professor of transport economics, deputy director of the Singapore Centre for Applied and Policy Economics, and director of the Economics Executive Programme, NUS.
  14. For me...I spend a lot of quantity time with my girl...as well as quality time. Recently we have this sweet 'habit'....close to her bedtime...she will sit on my lap and we will watch her fav show from babyTV....then as she gets tired..she will rest her head backwards on my chest...and I will ask her.."baby...sleep sleep already ok?". When she is ready..she will nod her head and I will carry her to bed bed.

    Where to buy

    I have this (junk), given to me by a friend. I am looking for a good quality jack to lift a medium size saloon car. Thanks in advance.
  16. So far, every time our neighbor gives us some 'poisonous' air, I notice the western part of Singapore especially Tuas and Jurong kena the most. That is a no brainer given the fact that area is nearest to where the fire is burning. I brought this up because many property investors that I come across seem not to put that into consideration at all. What do you guys think?
  17. Dear all, All along my wiper is changed by the AD who just change the just normal black rubber but costing a bomb. Can any member intro me what is a good brand and place to get wiper for.

    Kia aims to be a premium automotive brand

    Kia Motors, South Korea's second largest auto manufacturer has been making automobiles for quite sometime. They first started making re-badged Mazda Familia during the 1970s. It was only during the late 1980s that Kia started manufacturing vehicles extensively and by the early 1990s, you could virtually see a Kia vehicle in almost every major market. Fast forward to today, the company is fast moving into the upscale region and it is not surprising when the company announced that they are aiming to be a premium global automotive brand. During a recent function where the company's top dealers and distributors met, Kia Motors' president, Lee Hyoung Keun announced the company's five-year target and its goal is to be on the same level with European and Japanese premium auto brands. Mr. Lee also mentioned that the company will develop ever-more sophisticated vehicles that customers will aspire to own. He also confirmed that the company has set a target of exporting 2.21 million units of vehicles to overseas market. This is an increase of 8.3 percent over the 2.04 million units sold last year. If you were to ask me, this goal that Kia Motors are trying to achieve is hugely possible. Just take a look at Kia's current models. They are very much more aesthetically pleasing, compared to its older models. Kia's ever increasing popularity is basically built on its stylish new designs and at the same time, it has made Kia one of the fastest growing auto brands. The company has previously stated that one of its priorities is to improve the quality and technology featured in its cars and hopefully that this will help in brand perception. When Kia meets its five-year target, we will have to see at which new level the automaker has reached and at the rate they are going; I have a strong feeling that Kia will surpass some Japanese auto companies.

  20. Hi. I have 2 options of speaker from the shop I am currently upgrading my 6.5 comps to. Without looking at brands, Speaker A - 125W norm, 250W peak power Sensitivity 90dB Frequency 60Hz-20kHz Speaker B - 80W norm, 160W peak power Sensitivity 92dB Frequency 60Hz-20kHz My amplifier is able to handle 400W per channel, so both speakers are suitable. Both speakers are the same price. Will the 2dB of sensitivity be my concern, or should I just go for the higher power one?

  23. Hello folks, I need advice. I am considering giving away all the furnitures in my house (except for my master bed)....yes everything. The furniture are all well maintained (less than 4 years), some like the dinning table chair still have plastic protective covers intact. I also have half a storeroom of toys to give away. All in good conditions. I do not intend to sell them as since I will not get much for it, why not donate to those who can benefit from it. But my problem is short of Salvation Army, I can't think of any other organization. Any advice on this? Thanks!
  24. Please read interview http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/...,781597,00.html
  25. 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.
