  1. Great! We're finally going to have cars, albeit electric cars, manufactured in Singapore! The manufacturing facility is slated for completion in 2020, with its first electric vehicle rolling out by Dyson in the following year. You're reading correctly ...... Dyson, the maker of household appliances including bagless vacuum cleaners which it invented :) Good to diversify our economy and create more jobs! Hopefully, it will be able to rival Telsa and serve as a catalyst for more automotive makers to set up assembly plants here! https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/british-technology-company-dyson-to-build-electric-car-in-singapore-10855708

  3. The entire country machiam a 9,826,675 sqkm shooting range. Really getting outa hand From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/afp...1255277/1/.html At least four dead in California shooting spree Posted: 20 February 2013 1311 hrs LOS ANGELES: A gunman killed three people in California on Tuesday, including at least one execution-style, in a series of shootings and carjackings before taking his own life, police said. At least two other people were injured as the gunman fired randomly on other vehicles on a freeway, before he shot and killed himself near the city of Orange, south of Los Angeles. The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Ali Syed, who was unemployed, had no criminal record, and was living at home with his parents and taking a class at a local college. In all there were three murders and five attempted murders. The motive for the attacks was being investigated, said Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino, in an afternoon update on the early morning shootings. He described Syed as "kind of a loner (who) doesn't have a lot of friends." The first killing was a woman found dead in the early hours in Syed's family home in Ladera Ranch. The woman was not known to his relatives, and police said they were working to identify her. Syed then fled in an SUV, and "multiple incidents" occurred as he drove to nearby Tustin, about 35 miles southeast of Los Angeles, said Tustin police department spokesman Paul Garaven. In one of the first carjackings, Syed appeared "very polite" as he walked up to a gas station customer. "I don't want to hurt you. I killed somebody and today's my last day. Give me your keys," he told the customer, according to Tustin police chief Scott Jordan. He then took the man's car and drove onto a nearby freeway, where he stopped and opened fire on passing vehicles, trying to get another car. In another carjacking, Syed got out of his vehicle and confronted a motorist in a BMW. "He orders him out of the vehicle, walks him to the side of the curb, and executes (the) victim," said Santa Ana Police Corporal Anthony Bertagna. Amormino said four people were confirmed dead including the gunman. "With each carjacking there was a shooting involved," he said. Amormino added that there was no active pursuit of the suspect's vehicle until it was located near Orange, where the gunman took his own life. "He stopped the vehicle and got out and shot himself," he said. - AFP/sf
  4. I think this lucky couple might get additional $40,000 thousand discount on the house. Or at least $40,000 NTUC voucher or similar. Why i say this is because i have a very good impression of my government and its fair treatment of citizens and tourist alike. Last week changi airport also got a similar milestone on tourist arrival celebration, and one lucky tourist got a 40mins shopping spree at changi airport to shiok shiok spent away for free anything he can buy within that time! This tourist managed to buy $40k worth of stuff in the airport. SINGAPORE: The Housing and Development Board (HDB) has reached a milestone in its 50-year history, with the completion of its one millionth flat. With the completion of Treelodge@Punggol's 709 units, HDB has for the first time crossed the one-million milestone in its home-building programme. On Sunday, the keys to the one-millionth flat were handed over to the couple - Mr Wang Weiji and his wife, Christina Ng. The couple got married in 2008, and have been living with Mr Wang's parents in Hougang. Ms Ng said they got the flat they wanted on their first try. They paid $245,000 for a 4-room unit, a price which Ms Ng describes as reasonable. The couple signed for the flat in 2007, at a time when HDB resale prices were high, and supply of new flats was tight. The HDB's Resale Price Index shows that in the third quarter of 2007, prices went up about 16 per cent between the first and fourth quarters. And in November 2007, the government announced it would be building 7,000 new HDB flats over seven months to help first-time home-buyers. Three years on, the supply crunch might have eased, but some concerns over affordability remain. Speaking at the Treelodge@Punggol event, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, noted that this has "always been an issue". "We've had new residents who moved into Pasir Ris, we've had new residents move into Sengkang, and now we have new residents moving into Punggol. And in each era, there have always been concerns about affordability. "But as you can see, residents have been able to move in, been able to afford their flats, and we expect that would be so in the future as well," said Mr Teo, who is also the MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC. He noted that there are policies to help Singaporeans whatever their income. These include an Additional Housing Grant of up to S$40,000 to help lower-income families buy in the open market, as well as opening up more options for middle-class Singaporeans to purchase a new HDB flat. "Singaporeans know that if they work hard and budget wisely, they can aspire to upgrade to a better flat and a better life. The government's commitment has been, and continues to be, to provide affordable and quality housing to the masses," said Mr Teo. He added that HDB has moved from providing low-cost rental housing to building homes for ownership and along the way it has also picked up several international accolades. This year in Punggol alone, HDB launched 3,300 new flats through its Build-to-Order programme and will launch another project with 1,000 new flats in the next few days. HDB said its demand remains strong. It is on track to complete 35,000 flats in Punggol by end 2015. Treelodge@Punggol is Singapore's first eco-precinct, where green technology was incorporated into its planning design. Features include maximising the amount of natural light and ventilation, while harnessing the power of the sun for part of residents' electricity requirements. Apart from the HDB, other agencies such as the National Environment Agency, PUB and even the Economic Development Board were also roped in to develop the project. And Mr Teo used this to illustrate the whole-of-government approach outlined in the recently-released Public Sector Outcomes Review report. The approach itself is not new, Mr Teo said, but the report signalled a bigger effort in that direction. And by publishing the report once every two years, he said it will give the public a sense of how the government is doing, while motivating the ministries and agencies to do better.

  5. Wow what a way to start the weekend for these poor owners. No idea what the boys in blue will do next.... http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/stomp/sg...ok_carpark.html Paint was splashed on at least two cars parked at Blk 114a Bedok North and the culprit is still at large, says STOMPer sammy, who hopes that the vandal will be caught soon. The sender saw these two cars with paint deliberately splashed across their bonnets. A security camera should be installed at the carpark, he suggests. STOMPer sammy says: "I saw this at Blk 114a Bedok North Street 2, muti-storey carpark. "I wonder if the police will be able to catch the culprits behind this. "And I hope that HDB can consider installing cameras at the MSCP".
  6. Dalvey stabbing case: Poly student gets 16 years, 16 strokes By Khushwant Singh, Court Reporter Choking back tears, Navin Jatin Batla told the High Court on Wednesday that he was not going to deny or justify the offences. He said: 'Doing so will be a bigger crime.' Instead, the 23-year-old Indian national asked for a lenient sentence. 'If not for myself, then for my mother as she has sacrificed everything including selling her house to pay my legal costs,' he added. As the anxious mother watched from the public gallery, Justice Kan Ting Chiu sentenced her only son to a total of 16 years and 16 strokes of the cane for stabbing his ex-girlfriend's father and two maids in June 2006. The judge told Batla: 'You came here to do a course in marine engineering sponsored by a major shipping company in India. By committing the offences... you have brought tragedy onto yourself and your widowed mother and destroyed everything.' Batla, with his hands clasped in front of him, sobbed quietly. Things were looking bright when he arrived here in October 2005 to study at the Singapore Polytechnic. A month later, he met Ms Mumta Manik Shahani, 38, a Web designer, at the One Night Stand pub in Clarke Quay. Two weeks later, they were intimate and he would often sneak into her house to spend the night with her. Her father found out and told her to stop seeing the much younger Batla. She broke up with him on June 29 and an upset Batla bought two knives, four cans of lighter fuel, and cable ties that could be used as restraints. Using a key given to him by Ms Shahani, he stole into the bungalow in the exclusive Dalvey estate off Stevens Road soon after midnight on June 30. He then went on his stabbing spree. Asking for leniency, Batla's lawyer, Mr BJ Lean said that his client loved Ms Shahani and her 10-year-old son and wanted to marry her. 'The break-up sent him deep into depression and made him commit these crimes,' Mr Lean said. The lawyer also produced a report from a psychologist in Mumbai, who had treated Batla since 1997. Batla's mother, Madam Pooja Batla, 51, who has flown down regularly from Mumbai since Batla was arrested in June 2006, told reporters that she accepted the sentence as her son had done wrong. 'It's been a long wait and now this part is over and I can only look forward to his release,' she said. http://www.straitstimes.com/Latest%2BNews/...53.html?vgnmr=1 Luckily put away from society, else he may hv turned up and made local poly look like Coumbine High School.
