  3. SINGAPORE: Singapore Customs said the number of people who violated the three-quarter-tank rule doubled last year. It said the figure went up to about 4,000 compared to that the year before. The rule, which has been in place since 1991, requires all motorists travelling north out of Singapore, to fill their petrol tanks to at least three-quarter full. One driver said: "The (petrol) prices are pretty high right now. If I'm going to Malaysia, I will go with a three-quarter tank, and top up to a full tank before returning to Singapore. "I think that's the norm -- a lot of people do that". Another said: "Most of the time, I go in with three-quarter tank or more than three quarters, depending on the situation. I mean, since I'm going to Malaysia, I might as well top up there". In Singapore, petrol costs about two dollars per litre, while in Malaysia, it's about RM1.90 or about 80 Singapore cents. The price difference is why Singapore motorists are heading north to fill up their tanks. Singapore Customs said the number of people violating the three-quarter-tank rule has been on the rise between 2008 and 2010. Offenders face a maximum fine of S$500. Some motorists go even further by tampering with their fuel meter. Last year, 23 car owners were charged with that offence, down from 24 in 2009. In 2008, there were only four such cases. Offenders who tamper with their fuel meter face a S$5,000 fine or a year's jail. - CNA
  4. Mr Goh does not seem to understand it is always has been about dollars and cents on this 3/4 tank rule. Although I am all for srapping this %^&*$!!!, the authorities will never agree to it because this means losing rich source of revenue from petrol duties. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/Story/...ory_816291.html Time for three-quarter tank rule to go Published on Jun 29, 2012 DRIVERS of Singapore- registered vehicles have not been allowed to purchase the RON95 grade of petrol in Malaysia since August 2010. This petrol grade, which is subsidised by the Malaysian government, costs RM1.90 (76 Singapore cents) per litre currently, and is available only to Malaysia-registered vehicles. Singapore-registered vehicles can be filled only with RON97 petrol, which is no longer subsidised by the Malaysian government, and its price is subject to market forces. Currently, this grade of petrol costs RM2.90 per litre. Thus, the savings from filling our vehicles with petrol in Malaysia is no longer as attractive as it used to be. Also, the new Sultan Iskandar Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex has not helped to resolve the traffic jams associated with the old facility. The main problem lies with the narrow two-lane road leading to the new CIQ facility from Singapore, which is used by both buses and cars. The congestion affects vehicles leaving as well as entering Singapore. This infrastructural constraint is unlikely to be resolved any time soon, and the congestion could deter Singaporeans from going regularly to Malaysia to purchase petrol. Given the above-mentioned developments, the three-quarter fuel tank rule would appear to be redundant and should be scrapped. Goh Kian Huat

    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.

  8. Italy's Ferrari has mounted a turbocharged engine on its latest supercar for the first time in more than two decades, as even luxury automakers are forced to seek ways to cut emissions without sacrificing performance. The California T, which will debut at the Geneva auto show this week, will be equipped with an eight-cylinder engine that Ferrari says will consume 15 percent less fuel than its naturally-aspirated predecessor, reducing carbon dioxide emissions to 250 grams per kilometer (g/km) from 299. By pumping air into the cylinders, turbochargers get more power from a smaller engine, sometimes at the price of sluggish initial acceleration. Naturally aspirated engines, which instead draw in air through a valve, can deliver more consistent torque and a bigger engine sound. Unlike holdout Lamborghini and its naturally aspirated 5.2-litre Huracan on show in Geneva, Ferrari is breaking with tradition to offer its first turbo since the F40 coupe, sold between 1987 and 1992. The Fiat-owned (FIA.MI) sports car maker claims to have achieved "zero turbo lag" with new technology that adapts the torque curve to each gear change. "The California T ... is one of the results of significant investment in product and technological innovation," Chairman Luca di Montezemolo said last month. The new model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds, Ferrari said, 0.2 seconds faster than the 2012 California. Pricing has not been disclosed, although it is not expected to be significantly higher than the tag of around 185,000 euros ($255,500) on the last California. The Italian carmaker also said it had modified the car's exhaust to enhance engine noise, offsetting the turbo's muffling effect. MORE EFFICIENT Fans of Ferrari - ranked the world's most powerful brand last month by consultancy Brand Finance - are optimistic. Joe Adams, president of the Ferrari Club of America, said his members were excited about the prospect of getting more efficient horsepower and better fuel mileage out of the cars. "Ferrari needs to be able to show its technical prowess," said Adams, who has owned seven different Ferraris over the years. "Being green is just another challenge and that's something Ferrari relishes." The move by Ferrari coincides with the introduction this year of new Formula One rules requiring the use of turbocharged engines in the sport for the first time since 1988. Fuel-efficiency improvements account for a large share of the 2 billion euros in planned research and development spending over five years, Ferrari has said. The carmaker, which last year introduced its first hybrid, the 1 million euro LaFerrari, said its average CO2 emissions have already fallen 40 percent since 2007. While supercars will keep emitting more than small family cars, they need at least to show improvement, said Jay Nagley, managing director at Redspy, an automotive consultancy. "They don't want to look like dinosaurs," he said. Unlike Ferrari, Lamborghini is avoiding turbos for now and has no intention to pursue hybrids anytime soon. However, both technologies are readily available from parent Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) should it choose to use them later. The Huracan LP 610-4 on show in Geneva is Lamborghini's successor to its bestselling Gallardo model, which ended production last year. The carbon fibre and aluminum car's 10-cylinder engine emits an average 290 g/km of CO2. "One thing that makes a Lamborghini so unique is the music that comes out of the exhaust pipes," said Nick Wirth, a fellow of Britain's Royal Academy of Engineering. "A turbocharged engine would make the orchestra a little bit quieter." However, Wirth believes it is only a matter of time before even the most exotic brands are forced to embrace turbos and hybrids to meet tightening emission rules. "Ultimately, everyone will have to move in that direction." Source: http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/money/story/ferrari-returns-turbo-supercar-makers-face-emissions-rules-20140303

  15. An interesting read.... An Bro here w a cng car crossover to JB for fuel? Link Here In a bid to go GREEN and encourage the purchase of environmental friendly vehicles, the Green Vehicle Rebate (GVR) was originally introduced in 2001 by the Singapore Government and among other things, includes the exemption of excise duties on purchase of CNG, leading to lower fuel prices. This was subsequently reviewed in year 2009 and extended till 2011. On 27th Dec 2011, it was announced that an excise duty of $0.20 per kg will be imposed on compressed natural gas (CNG) starting 1 Jan 2012. This also meant that drivers of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV) and petrol-CNG (hybrid) vehicles will have to ensure that their fuel tank is at least 3/4 full when driving across the causeway, to preserve the duties collection from Singapore customs. The imposition of the 3/4 rule will hit existing NGV owners harder than normal petrol-fueled vehicles (when the 3/4 tank rule was first announced) due to the following: 1. The price differential between CNG price in Singapore and Malaysia is much higher (at least 70% cheaper in Malaysia) than petrol (petrol is about 40% cheaper in Malaysia). 2. Most owners of NGV would have made a conscious decision when making the purchase, and this may include a key assumption that the top up of fuel tank is done in Johor Bahru. If you are a normal driver of the normal petrol-based vehicles and has frequently travelled with less than 3/4 tank across the causeway, it might be more prudent to

  18. From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1173487/1/.html 3/4-tank rule to apply to CNG, petrol-CNG vehicles from Jan 1 Posted: 27 December 2011 1138 hrs SINGAPORE: With effect from January 1, the three-quarter tank rule will also apply to compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel supply tanks of CNG vehicles and petrol-CNG vehicles. The rule currently applies to petrol fuel supply tanks of Singapore-registered motor vehicles leaving Singapore. The Singapore Customs said the extension is because CNG becomes a dutiable fuel from January 1, 2012 as announced in Budget 2009. The Minister for Finance had then said that an excise duty of S$0.20 per kg will be imposed on CNG from January 1, 2012. This also means that from January 1, manufacturers of CNG will need to apply for a licence from Singapore Customs. CNG manufacturers will have to account for the quantity of CNG fuel produced, dispensed and sold, and pay duties on a monthly basis. CNG pump prices will also include duty and Goods and Services Tax (GST) from January 1. Singapore Customs said it has sent letters to owners of CNG vehicles to inform them of the changes. - CNA/cc
  19. Feb 15, 2011 'No smoking' rule in coffee shop ignored LAST Wednesday, I was at Ting and Ting Foodcourt at Block 494, Jurong West, around 7pm, and saw three customers smoking at a table in the "no smoking" area there. The coffee shop owner did not do anything to stop them. I hope the relevant authorities will step up their spot checks to ensure coffee shop owners enforce the "no smoking" rule. Also, it should be made compulsory for coffee shops to display prominently the relevant hotline number for members of the public to report instances of non-conformity to this rule. In this way, the authorities will be able to take immediate action against coffee shop owners who do not enforce the rule. Anthony Goh Isn't there a NEA hotline he can call to send officers down to spot check? Unless owners face hefty fines then they wl be more on the ball abit.

  21. Can someone kindly comment on why the 3/4 rule was implemented? i can't remember if it was because 1) MY was making noise and SG came out with the rule. 2) or SG gov wanted to protect the local petrol industry. I was just wondering if the reason the rule was setup was because of point 1. Then it's time to scrape the rule because MY gov is happy to sell 97 petrol to us at unsubsidized rates. if it was point 2..... ...... s--t. Regards
  22. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1080137/1/.html NTU's blogging rule raises eyebrows By Leong Wee Keat | Posted: 09 September 2010 1615 hrs SINGAPORE: It is an annual reminder, according to Nanyang Technological University but its recent circular on blogging has raised eyebrows on campus. Among its several do's and don'ts for Internet postings, the Nanyang Technological University Students' Affairs Office has set out this rule: Those who create webpages or blogs containing information regarding politics and religion must acquire proper licences from the Media Development Authority and the university's written approval. The email was sent on Tuesday to all students with the subject title, Message on Exercising Freedom of Expression Responsibly, in block letters. When asked what prompted the email and when the circular was first published, NTU Dean of Students Lok Tat Seng said, "Every year, we disseminate information on the do's and don'ts of Internet usage as a regular reminder to our students. The new academic year has just started, hence it's an appropriate time to disseminate the guidelines. These guidelines are posted on NTU's website for their reference, too." NTU did not respond, however, to MediaCorp's queries on why students needed the university's written approval to create webpages or blogs touching on politics and religion. Nor did it reply to the question on how many students have obtained written approval thus far. Under the Broadcasting Act, registration is required for websites deemed by the authorities to be propagating political or religious issues relating to Singapore. The last time any website was required to register as a political site, though, was in 2001. The owner of the site, Sintercom, shut it down in protest. Some NTU students are now questioning the university's approach. Final-year student Terence Lee, 24, who has been blogging about religion for the past two years, said it was the first time he had seen its rules. "Requiring students to register with the university is ridiculous," he said. "I'm taking a module which requires students to blog about international affairs. Does this mean all of us have to register?" On the other hand, third-year student Gillian Goh, who also said it was the first time she had seen the circular, felt the reminder was necessary even though some of her friends were "unhappy" about it. "No matter what you post online, and no matter how you defend it or even retract it later, students have to take responsibility for what they say," she said. Last week, a blogger posted about foreign students he accused of not contributing to group projects and, in some cases, copying the work of other students. The anonymous author, who identified the students and posted their photos, has since removed the blog. Two other universities here approach social media with a light touch. "It, however, crosses the line when comments and remarks are untrue or inflammatory," a Singapore Management University spokesperson said. The National University of Singapore "does not monitor students' postings in blogs and other online media", but a spokesperson said students are expected to abide by the university's Honour Code, "which includes not acting in a manner which is or may be detrimental to the reputation, dignity, interest, or welfare of the University". SMU students, too, are bound by the university's Code of Conduct, whereby students are expected to refrain from hate speech or epithets - be it racial, ethnic, religious, sexual or political in nature - in any media or communication. "In situations like these, we believe in education and dialogue, instead of authoritarian and punitive measures," its spokesperson said. - TODAY/fa
