  1. They should try doing the same survey in Japan. Confirm not so boring. Disclaimer: Not Tiko Thread. For serious discussion only. https://sg.entertainment.yahoo.com/news/plane-cab-american-sex-fantasies-revealed-105943047.html Most Americans aren't as daring as their fantasies, reveal the results of a survey by condom brand Durex, but "sexploration" is thriving, most notibly in transport. In celebration of National Orgasm Day, which took place Thursday in the US, Durex released the results of a survey on Americans' fantasy-versus-reality orgasm experiences, involving 1,000 participants over age 21. Cliché sex fantasies involving beaches and movie theaters abound, although notable was that while only 23 percent of participants fantasized about having an orgasm in a car, 36 percent said they'd found themselves in that situation. The library was the setting of orgasm fantasies for 15 percent of participants, although "sex in the stacks," as it is referred to by college students, has become a legend in campus culture. Putting the airplane cliché to rest, 30 percent of respondents said they fantasized about having an orgasm in a plane, yet only five percent admitted to being members of the Mile High Club. Other locales revealed to be highly idealized by thrill seekers include clothing store fitting rooms, where 22 percent of participants admitted to fantasizing about having an orgasm, while 28 percent said they would prefer it in the office and 20 percent fantasized about having sex on a roof or balcony. However, only five percent of participants could boast of having realized their roof or balcony fantasies. Other notable results included the back of a cab, where 16 percent fantasize about having an orgasm, while 10 percent fantasize about the subway and only two percent have actually lived it. Seven percent fantasize about orgasms in church. Eight percent fantasize about orgasms in a cemetery, but only three percent have realized the fantasy. It is illegal to have sex in public areas in the US, although Durex executives created the survey to encourage partner communication, for 93 percent of those surveyed said a trusted partner makes for more intense orgasms. Survey respondents said they found the home a perfectly galvanizing place for "sexploration," with 54 percent of respondents saying they enjoy sex in the shower and 35 percent admitting to sex in the kitchen.
  2. New 2018 BMW X2 SUV revealedhttp://www.autoexpress.co.uk/bmw/x2/93141/new-2018-bmw-x2-suv-revealed Based on the X1, the BMW X2 crossover will slot in beneath the X3 to provide another premium SUV offering BMW is aiming to fill yet another niche within the ever-growing ranks of premium SUVs with its latest creation: the X2. It has now been revealed in full – ahead of its launch next month. The X2 is designed to slot in between the entry-level front-drive-based X1 and the larger X3, as a model that focuses more on style than outright practicality. It shares many of its mechanicals with the X1, as well as the MINI Countryman. That means it uses BMW’s UKL2 platform – a chassis that restricts the car to four-cylinder engines but still offers the possibility of four-wheel drive on high-end models and, in theory, plug-in hybrid powertrains. The newcomer sticks admirably close to the looks of the Concept X2 seen at 2016’s Paris Motor Show. It has the same wheelbase as the X1, but shorter overhangs for a dynamic look. Perhaps more significantly, its roofline is a full 70mm lower, making the X2 more of a hatchback than a coupé-SUV. The 470-litre boot is 35 litres smaller than the X1’s. Other concept car touches to make production include the swept-back lights, the rising window line (incorporating BMW’s signature Hofmeister kink), the ultra-slim hatchback glass and even the BMW badge inset into the C-pillar. Basic SE models get 17-inch wheels, but more expensive trim levels will be available with 20-inch rims. Despite the platform’s capability, there’s no sign of electrification in the X2 launch line-up. Its range will comprise the two-wheel-drive, petrol-engined sDrive20i, and a pair of four-wheel-drive diesels, badged xDrive20d and xDrive25d. The sDrive20i has 228bhp and 450Nm, and is available only with a seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch auto transmission. It covers 0-62mph in 6.7 seconds, and emits between 126 and 134g/km of CO2 depending on wheel size. The diesels are both equipped with an eight-speed auto box. The xDrive20d has 188bhp and 400Nm, but emits between 121 and 126g/km of CO2, while the xDrive25d produces 228bhp and 450Nm, and emits between 133 and 139g/km. BMW has already confirmed that further engines will join the line-up in early 2018 – two more petrols, and a pair of diesels. The entry-level 138bhp 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol sDrive18i will join the four-wheel-drive xDrive20i, which has 189bhp. The diesels will be the 148bhp sDrive18d and xDrive18d; the front-drive edition of that variant will be the most efficient X2, with CO2 emissions as low as 119g/km. The car will be offered in SE, Sport, M Sport and M Sport X specs; the latter command a £3,550 and £4,350 premium over SE models respectively. SE features sat-nav, dual-zone climate control and a power tailgate, while Sport has sports seats and LED lights. M Sport variants get larger wheels and body-coloured side skirts, and M Sport X versions switch some of the design details to grey, for a more off-road-biased look. Confusingly, M Sport and M Sport X models are 10mm lower than regular X2s. Inside, the X2 gets familiar BMW cues, including iDrive and a 6.5-inch infotainment display that’s standard across the range, but which can be upgraded to a similarly sized Touch Control set-up, or an 8.8-inch screen with the same features. A head-up display will also be offered, as an option, along with WiFi hotspot preparation. Apple CarPlay will also be an extra, however, and Android Auto won’t be available.
  3. https://www.theonlinecitizen.com/2019/04/25/details-revealed-by-former-editor-of-the-new-paper-of-how-the-press-was-manipulated-by-pap-in-1997-to-fix-workers-party-politicians/ Bertha Henson former Associate Editor of The Straits Times wrote on her blog, Bertha Harian, about the upcoming book written by former editor of The New Paper, Mr P N Balji called The Reluctant Editor. The book promises stories from Mr Balji’s times as editor in both Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Mediacorp – described by Ms Henson as ‘nuggets of information that had been kept from the public eye’. The Reluctant Editor, says Ms Henson, contains stories about the relationship between the Government and local media which were generally not openly talked about, stories that she thought ‘journalists would take to their graves’. The fact that he, and others like him in the past, chose to share these stories is a mark of courage, she said. One story in particular that Mr Balji expands on in his book which Ms Henson was part of is the incident of the 1997 General Elections when The New Paper ran a story on their front page about the police reports filed against People’s Action party ministers by Workers’ Party politicians Tang Liang Hong and JB Jeyaretman. ADVERTISEMENT What happened in 1997? Before we can go further, we need to know what happened in 1997. The General Election that year was notable for the incident involving Tang Liang Hong who now live in exile. At the time, Mr Tang stood for elections alongside the late JB Jeyaretnam in Cheng San GRC. Mr Tang was attacked constantly by the PAP for being an anti-Christian Chinese chauvanist. The day before polling day, WP held a rally during which Mr Jeyaretnam had said that police reports had been filed against 11 members of the PAP. He said, ““Mr Tang Liang Hong has just placed before me two reports he has made to the police against, you know, Mr Goh Chok Tong and his team”. However, he did not go into further detail. People were guessing over the content of the report but there was no way for journalist to get their hands on it unless Mr Jeyaretnam handed it over to them directly. The police, after all, do not release report details on request. Ms Henson went on to describe how the next day, Mr Balji received a home call suggesting that he could get the police reports. He need only ask. Ms Henson highlighted, “This was a strange offer of a scoop offered to TNP, a newspaper which at that time was sold at lunch-time.” She continued, “Balji admits that the idea of a scoop stirred journalistic passions. Which editor would not welcome the chance to get one step ahead of its rivals, especially the broadsheet Straits Times, which had already gone to print by then?” As the deputy at the time, Ms Henson got in touch with the police to get the report but was denied. Mr Balji then made a phone call and a little later, the reports were faxed to them. TNP published the reports on their front page that day. The aftermath Ms Henson says that while she and Mr Balji did not get in trouble for publishing the police reports, Mr Tang and Mr Jeyaretnam did. While WP earned a non-constituentcy MP seat which Mr Jeyaretnam took, he was also slapped with 11 suits. Ms Henson said, “That was when it began to dawn on us that we had been made use of to disseminate a supposed libel to an even wider audience, which could mean higher damages if the PAP side won.” What followed was a massive legal battle waged against Mr Tang and Mr Jeyaretnam by the PAP leaders of the Singapore government for alleged defamation. Ms Henson recalled at the time that Mr Balji ‘wondered if he would be called to the stand by the defence to declare how he had obtained the reports’ but he was never summoned. “Nobody talked about the content of the reports; just its announcement,” she wrote. The courts found Mr Jeyaretnam liable and ordered him to pay $20,000 in damages. Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong at the time described that sentence as “derisory”. The PAP then appealed and the damages were raised to S$100,000 plus $20,000 in costs. As Ms Henson says, Mr Tan had fled the country and Mr Jeyaretnam was ‘taken to the cleaners’. In 2001 he was declared bankrupt after failing to meet his instalment payments. Consequently, he lost his NCMP seat as undischarged bankrupts are barred from serving in Parliament. He couldn’t stand for the 2001 general elections and in October of that year, he resigned as Secretary General of the WP. Regret over the decision to publish Over 20 years later, Ms Henson says the events still ‘grated’ on her. She said, “Playing it back, I wondered if we could have said no. Our journalistic instincts, scoop mentality and deadline pressure overwhelmed our ethics. We wanted to be first with the story. But we found that the fleeting euphoria was nothing compared to the stone that had been lodged in our hearts since. We did a terrible thing.” In the Particulars of the Statement of Claim served on 21 July 1997, the late Lee Kuan Yew conceded for the first time that he and ESM Goh Chok Tong who was then Prime Minister had procured the release of the police reports. The ESM Goh made a similar admission in an affidavit he swore in August 1997. This was also pointed out by Mr Tang in an interview he had given to freelance writer Chris Lydgate (originally commissioned by Asia Online but never publish) which was eventually posted on the Singapore Election blog in 2006. Similarly, the Singapore-Window website recounted Mr Tang’s lawyer George Carmen’s statement to the High Court which pointed out the ‘fundamental error in the case’. He noted that while under oath, PM Goh has admitted in Court that he has authorised Mr Lee Kuan Yew to release Mr Tang’s police reports. “Mr Carman said the prime minister and Mr Lee, his predecessor, “shot themselves in the foot” by releasing the report over which they are now seeking legal damages,” said the site. The press is a tool for politicans As it was already established way back then that it was Mr Goh who had authorised the release of the reports to the press. This, coupled with Mr Balji’s recounting of the events in his book and Ms Henson’s sharing on her blog, adds further evidence to the Mr Tang’s claim that he was set up with a cleverly orchestrated plan. If anything, this reinforces the fact that the press has always been a powerful tool not just for critics of the administration but for the administration itself. So it’s not a stretch at all to consider that politicians would want to be able to harness this tool and utilise it for themselves while preventing others from using it. You can see where this is going, I’m sure. The heavily debated Clause 61 in the proposed Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) states: So apart from the sweeping powers that would be granted under the act to any minister to declare falsehoods, ministers are also able to exempt individuals and groups from the act. This is a power that would be easily abused as a means to avoid holding the government accountable for potentially spreading falsehoods. For example, in the case above of the government claimed in Court that the announcement made by Mr Jeyaretnam at the WP rally was the problem when actually it was the administration that released that information to the press in the first place, making way for a libel suit. As it stands, there is a high potential of the law being misused by a minister seeking to advance an agenda. As Associate Professor of Law at Singapore Management University and former NMP, Eugene Tan said in an article by the South China Morning Press, “Any law can be misused for rogue purposes. Ultimately, a price will be paid by the government of the day if the law is misused to clamp down on dissent. How it is applied will also be subjected to the court of public opinion. Hence, governmental action must not only be in conformity with the law, but also endowed with legitimacy. ×××××××××××××××××××××××××××××××××× When fake news and doxxing law is the talk of the town.. It's worth remembering that things Are complicated. 1997 seems to be year that never stops giving.
  4. These are the first sketches of the Skoda Kamiqhttps://www.topgear.com/car-news/suvs/these-are-first-sketches-skoda-kamiq Right, let’s sort this out early on. The new Skoda Kamiq will be the smallest of the Czech brand’s three SUV offerings, putting it below the medium-sized Karoq and larger Kodiaq. Its rivals will be the likes of the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke and fellow Volkswagen Group little’uns the Seat Arona and VW T-Cross. For the sake of even more confusion though, Skoda is hoping to make the Kamiq slightly bigger than its competitors in order to score a point on interior space. So, it’s a big little SUV. Got it? Anyway – model minefield aside – based on the initial sketches that Skoda has released it’ll be a great looking thing. The front end is tall and imposing for a small (big) car and the split headlights have been flipped from the Karoq and Kodiaq – with sharp daytime runners above the main lights. The angular theme continues towards the back, where all lines converge to create a sporty-looking rear-end with Skoda spelt out along the boot. Whatever happened to logos? We don’t know anything more about what’s under the skin yet, but based on its sister cars from Seat and VW we can probably expect to get 1.0-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel versions here in the UK. The Kamiq will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. Like it, or will it fade into SUV obscurity? Let us know below… https://youtu.be/vMHehOIjzkc
  5. https://www.carsguide.com.au/car-news/mitsubishi-triton-2019-revealed-71824 Mitsubishi has ripped the covers from its facelifted Triton that is set to hit Australian showrooms in January 2019, with the updated pick-up ushering in a fresh front-end design, more active safety features and a new six-speed automatic transmission. The biggest change for the updated Triton is the new ‘Dynamic Shield’ front fascia that incorporates higher-set slimline headlights, a revised lower bumper, more sculpted bonnet and an updated grille with chrome flourishes. This design theme is found on most of Mitsubishi’s SUV models including the ASX, Eclipse Cross, Outlander and the related Pajero Sport. Mitsubishi says the front end “uses a horizontal/vertical motif and beefier chrome parts to give a sense of powerful rigidity in a design that echoes the ‘Engineered beyond Tough’ development concept.” Australian pricing and specification are still yet to be announced, but higher-spec variants gain bi-functional LED headlights, and the foglights have also been raised to protect the lighting elements from stone chips and high-water crossings, according to Mitsubishi. The rear bumper has been streamlined and is now integrated into the bodywork, and the bed sides and tail-lights have been restyled. There are fewer changes inside the new Triton, but it gains silver detailing and soft-touch materials. It also features a double-stitched finish on the front seat armrest, knee pads, console lid, brake lever and shifter. The door trims are now slightly thicker than the outgoing model. Second-row occupants now have access to a USB outlet and a roof-mounted air vent with four levels of airflow adjustment, while trays have been fitted around the centre console for smartphone or tablet stowage. Mitsubishi has increased the Thai-built Triton’s rigidity and added more sound-proofing and noise- and vibration-absorbing materials to improve cabin noise levels. The Japanese carmaker has increased available safety systems, which includes the addition of a camera- and radar-based front collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring with lane-change assist, rear cross-traffic alert and ‘Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation’ that helps prevent unintended motion. A surround-view 'Multi-Around Monitor' will be offered as an option, at least in some international markets, while front and rear parking sensors will be offered and a reversing camera will carry over. Mitsubishi’s on-the-fly 'Easy Select' 4WD system with four modes including rear-drive, four-wheel-drive, and high- and low-range 4WD will also carry over from the previous model. When switched to all-wheel drive mode, the Triton now features an 'Off-Road Mode' that allows specific terrain selection between Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand and Rock settings for improved control. The Triton is now fitted with hill descent control which operates at speeds up to 20km/h in 4WD modes. The suspension system mostly carries over, namely a double wishbone front and leaf spring rear set-up, but Mitsubishi says it has tweaked it to improve comfort, largely due to to bigger rear dampers. On overseas models fitted with 18-inch wheels, the brakes have been upgraded and now use larger ventilated discs with two-piston calipers. Powered by the carryover 2.4-litre turbo-diesel engine, the new Triton produces its peak 133kW of power at 3500rpm and maximum 430Nm of torque from 2500rpm. A 2.4-litrepetrol engine is still available. While the facelifted Triton is offered with a carryover six-speed manual and five-speed automatic transmission, a new six-ratio self-shifter with a Sport mode will also be offered in the new version. The new Triton is offered in four new colours – 'White Diamond', 'Graphite Grey', 'Passion Orange' and red – while white, 'Silver Metallic', 'Black Mica', 'Blue Metallic' and 'Brown Metallic' carry over.
  6. SSC Tuatara revealed at Pebble Beach with 300 mph target https://sg.news.yahoo.com/ssc-tuatara-revealed-pebble-beach-074002333.html After years of waiting, it's finally here. [uPDATE] SSC North America has contacted us to share a press release (attached at the end). The company says it's ready to start production of the Tuatara and is currently accepting orders, with only 100 cars to be made. These will be assembled at a new factory located at home in West Richland, Washington. The only information released about the hypercar's performance is its ability to exceed 300 mph. SSC has "full confidence" it will hit that mark. The heart of the hypercar in detail Formerly known as Shelby SuperCars, SSC North America has introduced this weekend at Pebble Beach the final version of its Tuatara hypercar, some seven years after presenting the concept. A press release hasn’t been issued yet, but all the juicy specs have been published on the company’s website from where we were able to source the adjacent images. Without further ado, the twin-turbo 5.9-litre V8 produces 1,350 bhp when feeding on premium unleaded and as much as 1,750 bhp on flex fuel. The mid-mounted engine – which has a redline of 8,800 rpm - weighs 194 kilograms and sends its output to the rear wheels through a seven-speed “computerised manual” gearbox featuring “robotic shift system.” The high-performance coupe has a dry weight of just 1,247 kg and an aerodynamically optimised body with a drag coefficient of just 0.279. To achieve that remarkably low weight, SSC used carbon fibre not just for the body and chassis, but even the wheels are made from carbon fibre. The 20-inch set comes wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres measuring 245/35 at the front axle and 345/25 for the rear wheels. Named after a lizard-like reptile originating from New Zealand, The production-ready Tuatara is 4.42 metres long and comes with a wheelbase stretching at 2.67 metres. According to the specs sheet, the hypercar is 2 metres wide and just 1.1 metres tall. Details about performance are not available at the moment of writing, but we’re expecting it to be one of the fastest production cars ever made considering the high power, low weight, and extreme aero setup. It remains to be seen whether it will try and claim the record for the fastest street-legal car, which currently belongs to Koenigsegg and its 277.87-mph Agera RS.

    Ridiculous office rules revealed

    Ridiculous office rules revealed LAURA FRANSEN HUMAN RESOURCES Sep 18, 2017 Source: http://www.asiaone.com/business/ridiculous-office-rules-revealed Does your company have any silly or unnecessary rules in place? While management will probably say no - after all, all rules are implemented for a reason - employees may feel differently. In a recent workplace study, 36.8 per cent of respondents said their workplace has "ridiculous" rules. The survey by UK job site CV-Library asked 1,000 UK workers whether their employer had any silly or unnecessary rules in place. If the fact that over a third of employees think their company has stupid rules doesn't motivate you to review your policies, perhaps this will: 22.5 per cent said that workplaces with ridiculous rules can't be trusted. When it comes to the ridiculous rules in question, according to the survey results they broadly fall into five categories: Bathroom breaks: Respondents reported they either had a strict time frame in which to go to the toilet (3 minutes), had to ask before using the toilet facilities, or were even searched before going to the toilet. Dress code: Some respondents reported they had to wear particular coloured clothes to match the business, and women weren't allowed to wear trousers. One individual even said that they were sent home for not dressing down. Talking: Some employees stated that they weren't allowed to talk out loud outside of the staff room, while others said that they weren't allowed to say "hello" to a customer, only "good morning", or "good afternoon". Time keeping: One company deducts 15 minutes worth of pay if an employee is 2 minutes late. Another won't allow staff to travel further than 20 metres away from the building during lunch in case they're back late. Drinks: Some workplaces won't allow their staff to drink water and another will not let workers carry drinks up and down the stairs. One company won't let employees have drinks on their desk in case they get spilt. Commenting on the results, Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library, said: "Every workplace needs rules: otherwise you'd simply never get things done! That said it's clear that many of the rules highlighted in our research are just ridiculous." He added: "Employees want to feel trusted and while one workplace can differ massively to another, you have to treat your staff like adults - especially when it comes to being allowed to drink water and going to the toilet!" A final finding from the survey provides another reason for ensuring any office rule makes sense to staff. Over half of respondents (57.2 per cent) said that if they feel a rule is silly, they'll simply disobey it. My company also quite kecoh one. Quite stringent on dress code and such.

  10. All-New 2011 Mazda5 Revealed - Public Debut in Geneva
  11. Even can say which cp somemore and how the process went... Taking the stand for the first time, former Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) chief Ng Boon Gay on Monday came clean on his relationship with former IT sales executive Cecilia Sue. 15 minutes into the beginning of his testimony in the afternoon, he recounted how their affair started between end-2008 and early 2009. Accused of four counts of sex-related graft, Ng said he had a three-year extra-marital relationship with Sue during which they had oral sex 20 to 30 times in various car parks and other secluded spots across Singapore. Among these locations were the Singapore General Hospital car park, a car park in Mount Faber, East Coast Park and the Halifax car park in Novena. The first encounter occurred at East Coast Park, about two to three months after they first met at around the end of 2008. Each intimate session that followed throughout the time they were together was consensual and lasted about 30 minutes, he said.

  21. While scouting for a 2nd hand honda , i came across a car dealer (S) who was very obliging - he offered to replace the full set of sports rims even though 3 of the rims were in almost perfect condition. Also prepared to add armrests at no additional cost. STA evaluation charges are also borne by him, however he does not allow me to bring in my mechanic saying that it's not fair to him just wonder why??? If the car is in good condition why the hell is he worried.??? The milleage for this 2year old car is around 20,000 km and we thought it was a very good buy as he readily slashed $3000 from the advertised price. The salesman (D....) was so convicing telling us that we can have a separate contract even after we have collected the car. The contract to state sports rims still owing , another 1year warranty will be given etc. We had placed a deposit of $2,000 on that saturday and was all excited to collect my ride on tuesday. However on monday after discussing my "rare" find with my colleagues many thought that this is too good to be true! Following which i made several phone calls to the original P.I and the servicing agent. From there i was given to understand that when the car was serviced 1year ago the mileage was already 32,000km how can it be true that it is only 21,000 after another 1 year.??? We confronted the dealer/salesman on this issue threatening to report the case to the police and to Case. All he has to say was, "i dunno i dunno when i bought the car from the previous owner, the mileage was like that" . Initially they were still not prepared to give us the full refund, wanting to keep half of the deposit given. This is RIDICULOUS. Finally they paid up as they thought it was worth trading their reputation for this. So don't u think they have a part to play in this mileage thing.??? If a layman like me is able to find out the actual mileage what more for a car dealer ? isn't this interesting
