  1. Acura NSX Is The Fastest Production Hybrid Ever At Pikes Peak source: https://www.motor1.com/news/442210/acura-nsx-fastest-hybrid-pikes-peak/ The race to the clouds is alive and well in 2020. Nestled in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Pikes Peak is an area that means so much to people from all walks of life. Some may see a hiking paradise, others a quiet one-mile raceway, but ask any petrolhead and they’ll describe it as home to one of the most fearsome hill climbs in the world. In the latest running, Acura proved its hand with the NSX as the fastest performance hybrid in the race. In the driver’s seat was chief Acura engineer James Robinson, a 10-time Pikes Peak veteran with podium finishes in the Exhibition, Open, and Time Attack 1 classes. This year competing in the TA1 class, he came up against some fierce competition with a Porsche 935 tribute car driven by Jeff Zwart and GT2 RS Clubsport piloted by David Donner amongst the runners. The NSX time attack special produced a third-place finish in class, with the two Porsches of Donner and Zwart ahead. It’s clear the top three were the undisputed class off the field, with the Acura finishing almost a minute ahead of the next-best car. Results aside, it’s clear that the NSX competitor wasn’t just a stock vehicle taken from a dealership and dropped on the Pikes Peak start line. The hill climb special sports a massive rear wing, aggro front splitter, 200 pounds of weight reduction, and HRE wheels shod with sticky Pirelli rubber. The engine has also been fettled to the tune of 625 horsepower (466 kilowatts) in comparison to the standard 573. Aside from exploits up the mountain, Acura Motorsports remains integral to the brand since its launch in 1986. In its tenure, the partnership has produced multiple championships in the American sports car racing scene with both prototype and GT3 challengers. If their track record is anything to go by, we’d wager that Acura will be back to take the top step next year. Regardless, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb remains one of the longest-running motorsports events in America.
  2. World Internet Speed Record Is Now 178,000 Gbps source: https://www.lowyat.net/2020/219707/world-internet-speed-record-178-tbps/ A research team at the University College London (UCL) has recently set a world record for the fastest Internet speed in the world. Done in collaboration with Xtera and KDDI Research, the effort was led by Dr Lidia Galdino who is a lecturer at the university’s Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and also a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow. Said to be a fifth faster than the previous record, the data transmission speed that the UCL research team managed to achieve is 178 Terabits per second (Tbps) which is equivalent to 178,000 Gigabits per second (Gbps). To put things into perspective, that is around 2 million times faster than the average fixed broadband download speed in Malaysia for July 2020, according to Ookla Speedtest Global Index. According to the announcement by UCL, its research team was able to achieve the insane speed level by transmitting data using a much larger bandwidth than what a typical optical fibre has. As a comparison, the researches utilise a bandwidth of 16.8THz while the current implementation ranges from 4.5 to 9THz. Interesting enough, UCL pointed out that the technique used to achieve the world record can be implemented in existing infrastructure just by upgrading the amplifiers within optical fibre routes at 40 to 100km intervals. In fact, the university claimed that it is way more affordable to perform the upgrade instead of installing new optical fibres. Now, don’t forget that this speed record was achieved inside a lab. So, many things need to be addressed first before we can see the technique being adopted by the industry but nevertheless, it is always good to see researchers kept on trying to push technology boundaries further.

  5. New cars usually come with free camera, but the camera will off when engine off. If you connect camera to draw power from battery, it will void warranty. Heard that if we install a battery Power Pack to ensure camera is running when engine is off, it will not void warranty, but some say it will void warranty. Anybody knows if battery Power Pack voids warranty ?
  6. A Japanese Electric Car Just Destroyed Tesla's 0-60 Acceleration Recordhttp://fortune.com/2018/02/19/aspark-owl-electric-car-tesla/ Japan-based boutique carmaker Aspark has accomplished what until recently seemed impossible: creating a street-legal electric car that goes from 0 to 60 miles an hour in barely over 1.9 seconds. The car, called the Aspark Owl, destroys the acceleration of most of the world’s most expensive gas-powered street racers. The $3 million Bugatti Chiron has clocked 0-60 in a leisurely 2.3 seconds, while the Lamborghini Aventador does it in a positively glacial 2.7 seconds. By comparison, no less an authority than Top Gear describes the OWL’s performance as “ridiculous.” Of course, it might not be entirely fair to compare the Owl’s acceleration to high-end gas cars. Electric motors have inherently higher torque and better acceleration than gas engines at lower speeds, while gas cars can often hit 70 or 80 mph faster. A fairer comparison, then, might be to Tesla’s all-electric Model S, which last year became the fastest-accelerating production car in the world. Its billed 0-60 acceleration time is 2.5 seconds, though independent tests have seen times just under 2.3 seconds. The Owl, then, could soon become the zippiest car you’ll ever pull up next to at a stoplight—but there are two caveats. First, according to Jalopnik, the recent run was made with a set of racing tires, many of which aren’t safe or legal for everyday driving. But Aspark is working towards hitting a sub-2-second 0-60 using street-legal tires. The second condition is a bit bigger: the Owl will reportedly be priced at $4.4 million, and start with a limited production run of 50 vehicles. You could buy nearly 65 base Model S’s for that price, or about 22 of the upcoming $200,000 Tesla Roadster. That car isn’t coming until 2020, but Tesla is already promising that it can match the Owl, with a 0-60 time of 1.9 seconds.
  7. Caterham invited former track cyclist Sir Chris Hoy to set a record for making as many donuts as he could in 60 seconds. As part of the Caterham Seven's 60th year anniversary, the olympic legend had to spin the car around a cone as many times as he could in under a minute. According to The Sun, the 620R variant of the Seven was chosen for the record attempt and has been named as such as it has a power-to-weight ratio of 620bhp per tonne. It will do the century sprint in a scant 2.79 seconds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLLuRvZsEbnsE64EkR8FPUdfk87ncixYE1&v=jn9qRMx3iaM
  8. Some of you may know, but just in case.. Recently got into some situations, when I was coming out of a car park and the barrier refuse to open. The box says "No entry record" One time I was lucky, push the intercom button and someone open the barrier. 2nd time was not, nobody answers the intercom and a frustrated queue of cars formed behind and started honking. Case 1: I was exiting the car park when I got a ping for a pickup. The pickup location was right behind me in another car park. The gantry had open, but I reverse back to go around and exit via another gantry of the same car park. Big mistake. "No enty record", cannot exit. Case 2: I enter a open air car park, and then want to get out, but the place was blocked with illegal parking. So I saw some space near the entry to the MSCP. I moved forward to reverse. Unfortunately too near the MSCP and the gate open. I didn't go in, but reverse to get out of the open space car park. Again "No entry record" Now, this is the problem. You are headed into an EPS car park, your IU is recorded. Then when you get out, your IU record is DELETED when the gantry opens. If the gantry opens and you didn't go through, but reverse back. Your record is DELETED and you can't get out again - No entry record If a MSCP is fully enclosed within a open air car park EPS, you drive into the MSCP, your open air car park record is DELETED. Only when you exit the MSCP into the open air car park, then you have an entry record. So the next time, you see an empty lot just besides the exit gantry, be careful when you're reversing into the lot. Go too far forward and you trigger the exit gantry, your entry record is deleted. Then you reverse and parked happily, until you try to get out - No entry record.

  13. Sibei fast. Under 2hr 3 mins.... https://sg.sports.yahoo.com/news/kenyas-dennis-kimetto-breaks-marathon-world-record-092838412--spt.html AFP News/Tobias Schwarz - Kenya's Dennis Kimetto celebrates winning the 41st edition of the Berlin Marathon on September 28, 2014 in a new world record Kenya's Dennis Kimetto smashed the world record in the Berlin Marathon on Sunday as he made history by becoming the first man to break the 2hr 03min barrier. Dennis Kimetto of Kenya crosses the finish line in a new world record time of 2:02:57 to win the 41st Berlin marathon, …His lightning fast run of 2hr 02min 57sec was the second year running that the record had been broken in Berlin, the previous best being 26 seconds slower -- the 2:03.23 set over the same course last year by compatriot Wilson Kipsang.The performance by the 30-year-old, a former farmer from western Kenya's high-altitude Rift Valley region, delivered a new benchmark in human endurance and cemented the Kenyans' total dominance of international road racing. Dennis Kimetto of Kenya celebrates after winning the 41st Berlin marathon, September 28, 2014. Kimetto finished …"As the race went on, I saw I could do it, I'm delighted to have won," the modest Kimetto said after making history and nudging world leading times close to the two-hour barrier.Kimetto, the pre-race favourite, was part of a seven-man breakaway group after 20km, which included fellow-Kenyans Emmanuel Mutai and Geoffrey Kamworor. But Kimetto shook off Mutai four kilometres from home and crossed the line in record time over what is regarded as the world's fastest marathon course. Mutai finished second, also inside the previous record time with a run of 2:03.13 -- illustrating the depth of Kenya's talent. Dennis Kimetto from Kenya holds a flag after winning the 41st Berlin Marathon in Berlin, Germany, Sunday, Sept. …Ethiopia's Abera Kuma a long way back in third in 2:05.56.Kimetto hails from the town of Eldoret -- a part of the country that has produced some of the most dominant distance runners in history and is emerging as the world's training capital. He was working as a farmer in an impoverished rural area before he took up running in his mid-20s, joining the training group of Geoffrey Mutai -- a Boston, Berlin and two-time New York marathon champion and the former holder of the unofficial world best, a 2:03.02 set in Boston. His first major win came in Nairobi's Half Marathon in 2011, and he went on to finish second behind his training partner Mutai in the Berlin Marathon in 2012. His 2:04.16 was the fastest marathon debut in history, and notable as he is one of a new breed of Kenyan road racers who do not have a track pedigree. In 2013 he won the Tokyo Marathon, setting a course record of 2:06.50, and then the 2013 Chicago Marathon in a course record of 2:03.45 -- where he also beat Emmanuel Mutai into second place. In the women's race, Tirfi Tsegaye led an Ethiopia 1-2, winning in 2:20.18 from Feyse Tadese (2:20.27) -- failing to break the 2:20 barrier and still a way off the 2:15.25 set by Britain's Paula Radcliffe in London in 2003. Shalane Flanagan of the United Statges was third in 2:21.14, a personal best but short of the American record.
  14. S$29billion spend on corruption in railway project. Only in China ... Yahoo news: Multi-billion-dollar charges linked to China rail chief A businesswoman linked to China's disgraced railway minister faces charges of illegal business activities worth 180 billion yuan ($29 billion), state-run media said Monday, indicating far vaster industry corruption than previously revealed. Ding Shumiao will face trial in Beijing for bribery and illegal business activities after she "intervened in bidding for dozens of railway projects", the China Daily reported, citing prosecutors. The scale of the charges is larger than anything prosecutors have previously linked to corruption associated with the railway sector in China, where the high-speed network, now the world's longest, has been a flagship development project of the ruling Communist Party. Former railway minister Liu Zhijun was given a suspended death sentence in July for accepting a total of 64.6 million yuan in bribes to help 11 people secure contracts and promotions. The China Daily said Ding was accused of giving Liu more than 49 million yuan and arranging sexual favours for him, while Liu helped 23 businesses recommended by her to win contracts for more than 50 rail projects, the China Daily said. The alleged total in inappropriate activities were equivalent to a quarter of China's entire national railway investment in 2010, it added. Liu was sacked in 2011 after eight years in the post and being celebrated as "father" of China's vastly expanded rail network. In March the railways ministry was disbanded, with its administrative functions handed to the transport ministry and its commercial role given to a new China Railway Corporation. Last week a top rail official Zhang Shuguang was charged with accepting bribes worth 47 million yuan over 11 years, while another senior figure Su Shunhu stood trial for allegedly receiving 24 million yuan in bribes. China's Communist leaders have vowed to crack down on rampant official corruption, which has stoked popular resentment. The anti-corruption campaign has also targeted a former senior economics policymaker, top executives from a major state-owned oil firm and numerous low-ranking officials, but has not yet introduced systematic reforms. link: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/multi-billion-dol...-024618760.html
  15. http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/03/10/job-placements-decline-despite-record-jobs-vacancies/ Job placements decline, despite record jobs, vacancies? March 10th, 2014 | Author: Contributions I refer to the Department of Statistics’s (DOS) Monthly Digest of Statistics January 2014 released a few days ago. Job placements declining? Under Employment Services – the ratio of New Registrants to Placements has declined from 48% in July to 45, 38 and 33% in October, November and December, respectively. (Note: Placements – Number of people who were placed into employment by the career centres. This includes those who found their own jobs after receiving services from the career centres.) Record jobs, vacancies – but harder to get jobs? With record numbers of job vacancies, vacancies unfilled over 6 months and jobs creation for locals, in the 2 reports published recently by the Ministry of manpower (MOM) – why is it that the job placement rate for locals is declining? No breakdown into Singaporeans & PRs? Why is there no breakdown of the job placement statistics into Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PRs)? Previous Job placement rate just over 10%? However, according to previous Monthly Digest of Statistics’ reports, the ratio of Job Seekers Placed in Employment to Job Seekers Attended To was 14%, 18% and 12%, for 2011, 2012 and December 2012, respectively. More or less job seekers? Job seekers dropped from 100,504 to 24,500? According to media reports, “between January and November 2012, the number of people approaching the CDCs for training and employment assistance was 24,500, a 3 per cent drop compared to the same period in 2011. The success rates of those being placed into employment has also been higher in 2012. 11,800 were placed into jobs between January and November 2012, compared to 10,100 for the same period in 2011″ However, according to the Department of Statistics’ (DOS) Monthly Digest of Statistics Singapore June 2012, job seekers attended to by the CDCs and e2i, was 99,608 and 100,504, in 2010 and 2011, respectively, and job seekers placed in employment was 17,732 and 14,223, respectively. (“Easier to get jobs?“, Sep 7 and “Latest statistical highlights: Job placement rate drops to 14%, Jul 17) “Job seekers attended to” changed to “New Registrants”? It would appear that the Monthly Digest of Statistics was changed to “New Registrants”, instead of ”job seekers attended to”. This change has resulted in a dramatic increase of the job placement rate from 14 and 18 per cent in 2011 and 2012, respectively, to 36 and 49 per cent. What is the definition and difference between “New Registrants” and ”job seekers attended to”? Was this change announced to anybody? Job placement rate increase 172% (by magic)? So, this change has literally “by the stroke of a pen” increased the job placement rate in 2011 and 2012 by 157 per cent (36 divided by 14) and 172 per cent (49 divided by 18), respectively. So, how is it possible that 100,504 job seekers attended to by the CDCs and e2i in 2011, has dropped dramatically to only 24,500 job seekers approaching CDCs in 11 months (excluding e2i?)?

  21. HUAT AH! SINGAPORE: An executive maisonette in Hougang has been sold with a record Cash-Over-Valuation (COV) of S$225,000, about five times the average COV paid for such properties. COV is the cash premium buyers pay for a resale HDB flat. The flat is located at Block 237, Hougang Street 21. According to property portal SRX, the 148 square-metre maisonette was sold on October 16 for S$900,000 including COV. Property analysts said it is not the norm. They believe this flat commanded a premium because it is situated right next to a neighbourhood park, within walking distance of food centres and an MRT station, and also a buyer who is willing to fork out a large sum of money. ERA Realty's key executive officer, Eugene Lim, said: "It also takes a certain kind of buyer who would be willing to pay this price. An example would be someone who is downgrading from private property. Perhaps he has cashed out his landed property, looking for something with a similar feel as landed property, with upstairs, and downstairs. But, having sold his landed property for huge profit... this COV may not a big sum to him." With more HDB flats commanding exceptional prices in recent months, analysts MediaCorp spoke to say prices appear to be climbing. Analysts said some will fetch high prices if they command premium views, sit in a well-connected estate and meet the right buyer with the ready cash. HDB data shows an average of 2,000 to 3,000 executive flats are transacted every year. For the first 10 months of 2012, about eight such flats were sold for S$900,000 and above. There are more than 65,000 executive flats in Singapore, including maisonettes. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1233468/1/.html

    The world

    Images of a car with a really low height have been circulating on the internet recently. The car may look like something you might buy from a toy store for a small child. But in fact, the car is allowed to be driven on the road and it has broken the Guinness World Record for being the lowest road worthy car. The car is known as the Mirai (which means future in Japanese) and it was built by a group of students and teachers from Japan. The Mirai measures just 45.2 centimetres off the ground and as mentioned above, it was entered into the 2013 Guinness World Record Book for being the lowest road worthy car. The Mirai was created and built by students and teachers from the Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan. The students and teachers are from the automobile engineering department of the school. A total of nine teachers and twelve students spent several months planning on how to build the car and they took around one year to finally assemble it. The car was initially planned to run on ordinary gasoline but it was later changed to feature an electric motor. The car runs on six batteries. The car
