  4. Just as F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton feels that drivers need to face a stronger physical challenge while racing, Toro Rosso boss reckons that it is not possible to fully tire out today's drivers after a race. In an article published by Autosport, Tost pointed out how experienced drivers are nowadays, even before they enter Formula 1, with plenty of guidance in terms of modern-day dieting, nutrition and physical preparation. “Of course, you cannot compare this time with - let me say - 20 or 30 years ago when Nelson Piquet and Nigel Mansell or whoever collapsed after a race,” said he said. “They never saw a fitness center from the inside and some of them were smoking as well and in former days, I remember that some cars did not finish the race and then they talked about gearbox problems. Hey, they were smoking beforehand and they were not fit enough to finish the race and then they put it in any gear so that the car stopped.” “They were not fit enough. This is reality.”

    Self induced stress at work

    Being in the sales line and new to the company since Jan 2017, i constantly give myself the pressure to bring in more new accounts. Maybe its due to me being let go by my previous company. Had a tough time looking for job in June 2016 till Aug 2017. Found a job in an Italian company (same trade) but they expect results in eastern malaysia within the 3-4 months i was with them. Luckily my current company, used to be my customer, asked me to join them. Had some result within the first year of joining them but now seems not so smooth. Sigh, guess not everyday is smooth sailing.
  6. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1191578/1/.html SINGAPORE: A doctor with Changi General Hospital pleaded guilty on Tuesday to dressing up as a junior college schoolgirl and exposing himself to a university student. Thirty-seven-year-old Ivan Ngeow Ko Yen was first charged in August 2010 with insulting the modesty of the then-19-year-old student. He was loitering at a lift lobby in Clementi while donning a school uniform, comprising a top and a skirt. The girl noticed him at her block's void deck, but ignored him. However, she caught him lifting his skirt in her direction and exposing himself, as the lift doors were closing. A report was made later and Ngeow was arrested the following month. Ngeow, who is out on S$10,000 bail, will be sentenced on 24 April. A pre-sentence report has been ordered to assess his suitability for probation. For the offence, he could be jailed up to one year and fined. - CNA/wk
  7. Do you belong to one of the AIG survey statistics ? Drivers here are often frustrated on the roads as they have to deal with "escalating unsafe and inconsiderate behaviour", according to a study released by AIG Singapore on Wednesday (Jan 20). In an online survey of 800 respondents, 77% said they were annoyed about driving conditions in Singapore, while 53% reported feeling stressed. The top three causes of irritation for Singaporean drivers were (according to AIG survey) 1) reckless driving (60%), 2) drivers changing lanes without signalling (54%), and 3) drivers not allowing others to change lanes (50%) http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/singapore-drivers/2440654.html
  8. Losing something is always a stressful experience. No matter what the item is, we don't like losing things. Hope she gets back her bunny companion of 17 years. Hmm, Radder . . . quite close to someone here, haha http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/more-singapore-stories/story/desperate-hunt-bunny-lost-train-20141012 After eight hours combing MRT stations along the East-West Line and spending close to $500 on lost-and-found ads, a 23-year-old is still desperately looking for a companion which had been by her side for the last 17 years. Its name is Radder and it is a yellow shirt-clad white rabbit soft toy. Ms Ng, who works as a charity fund-raiser, wrote in an online ad on STClassifieds that the toy is more important than her "wallet, handphone and passport combined". She is offering a reward to anyone who helps her find it, but declined to reveal her full name as she is afraid of getting harassed. Her uncle had given it to her when she was about six years old and it has been with her through thick and thin, Ms Ng told The Sunday Times. She lost the plushie on Sept 27 while rushing out of a train at Outram Park station.

    BF3 server under stress???

    Can't access BF3 for the pass 1 hr, is it down?
  10. By DAN FITZPATRICK and VICTORIA MCGRANE Some very large banks are clashing with the Federal Reserve over how much detail the central bank will reveal about them when it releases the results of its latest stress test. The 19 biggest U.S. banks in January submitted reams of data in response to regulators' questions, outlining how they would perform in a severe downturn. Now, citing competitive concerns, bankers are pressing the Fed to limit its release of information

Or is it hectic, demanding, or nerve racking ? Where does the pressure come from ? How do you relieve from the stress ? Can share your experience ? thx.
  12. CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1146843/1/.html "Lee Kuan Yew has acknowledged the pressures new immigrants have placed on citizens and home prices in the country." "Mr Lee said: "We've done a revamp and HDB has promised that within four years, the supply will meet the demand. It will be resolved." But home prices aside, citizens are feeling the pressure in other aspects. Mr Lee said: "On competition for jobs, and especially competition, pressure on their children to do well in schools. The new migrants having left his home must go all out to succeed in the country that he or she has adopted. "That is to be expected and therefore, we must accept that they are going to do their best and if doing their best puts pressure on us, our children, it may be good for them because they will also have to put in effort to do their best to keep up." So People of Singapore, we finally hear from the Horse's mouth that current Singapore government believe in putting "Pressure" on Singaporeans to maximum results from your blood and sweat. If not getting expected result, the Singapore government was the choice to mass-import non-locals to keep up that "Pressure". In July this year,only weeks before Singapore's 46 NDP, LKY stated "'Singapore can't punch above its own weight if it depends on local talent" at South Asian Diaspora convention hosted to show case non-local "Talents". So, People of Singapore, some ex-cabinet ministers now sees Singaporeans as a liability. You have wasted your time and effort in NS and all those national campigns in the last 40 years....because you are "old", "no vitality and no drive".. Hard Truth for Singaporean or those New immigrants? I say BOTH. If those new immigrants are "younger, has vitality and drive", why are they leaving their bigger resource-rich bigger home countries and coming to this little Red Dot to work and still complain? While at the same time, Singaporeans have been asked to contribute charitable works in those impoverished communities in countries like Philippines, to India and China where majority of these new immigrants from. Shouldn't these thousands of immigrants here able to contribute their "youth, vitality and drive" where their own home town are most needed? I find recent LKY's post-GE statements both perplexing and misleading. These mass-importation of immigrants within last few years serves only as TOOL to create division and tension in Singapore in the name of GDP which Singapore's Ministers pay and bonuses are pegged to.

    Handle stress

    We live in a stressful world, morning, afternoon and night always bombarded with stressful situations I this some bros and sis may read this to ensure a healthy and productive life there are many library books and audiobooks around that can help to be efficiently productively in one's live one has to be relatively stress free hopeful this would bring happiness and prosperity for the coming year Handle stress well, and you?re well on your way to a healthy, productive life Mon, Nov 02, 2009 The Star/Asia News Network By Dr Nor Ashikin Mokhtar STRESS is probably the most over-used word of the 20th and 21st century. We are all victims of stress, brought on by our work, personal lives, relationships, and health. We have come to accept that stress is inevitable. But we should not let it take over our lives and affect our health or well-being negatively. By learning to manage your stress, you can give your body a break and learn to enjoy life. What causes stress Stress is not just something you experience for a while, and then goes away. Your body actually reacts to stress, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Over time, these reactions have an impact on your health. First, let's look at what causes stress. In today's fast-paced, highly-competitive world, we stress ourselves out with all sorts of worries. Sometimes stress is thrust upon us, for example, becoming unexpectedly ill, or we bring it upon ourselves, for example, trying to do too much at work. Even exciting things happening in our lives can produce stress as well - getting a promotion or having a baby is great, but you may experience changes, uncertainties, and anxieties that cause stress. Women are particularly susceptible to stress caused by hormonal changes, during puberty, the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause - hormone levels fluctuate consistently and cause stress. Bad, bad stress Is there such a thing as good stress? Well, considering that stress is a natural reaction by humans, there has to be a reason for it. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. Thanks to the body's "fight or flight" response, you will experience a rush of adrenaline in an emergency situation that prepares you to run or defend yourself. Some people perform best under stress, such as musicians, athletes, or even politicians! Stress becomes bad when your body has to continuously respond to it. This will cause wear and tear on the body - both physical and emotional - and one day, you will discover that you are functioning at far lower levels than you used to. Prolonged stress, leading to distress, can disturb the body's internal balance or equilibrium, leading to physical symptoms such as headache, an upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, sexual dysfunction, and problems sleeping. If you're overly stressed, you may also be plagued by ulcers, lower abdominal cramps, colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome. You may find yourself falling sick with colds and common infections more often due to a weaker immune system. Or, an attack of the rashes may come on! Women suffer from unique problems related to stress - in extreme cases, it can lead to absence of menstruation or abnormal bleeding. Hormonal imbalances caused by stress may exacerbate the symptoms of fibroid tumours and endometriosis, and make it more difficult for couples to conceive a baby. Some women experience changes in their sexuality and encounter various sexual dysfunctions such as loss of desire and vaginal dryness as a result of stress. Distress can also cause emotional problems, such as depression, panic attacks, or other forms of anxiety and worry. Stress becomes part of a vicious circle when people engage in the compulsive use of substances or behaviours to try to relieve their stress, such as turning to food, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gambling, sex, shopping, and the Internet. Rather than relieving the stress and returning the body to a relaxed state, these substances and compulsive behaviours tend to keep the body in a stressed state and cause more problems. Getting stressed when you're already ill Research suggests that stress can also worsen or exacerbate certain symptoms or illnesses. Not everyone responds in the same way to a certain illness, and the addition of mental stress on top of that individual response certainly affects it. For instance, certain diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, peptic ulcer disease, or cardiac disease can worsen with mental stress. It is important for women who already have some form of heart disease, such as high blood pressure, heart palpitations or high cholesterol, to be careful, because heart disease is one of the top killers of women. How can you tell when you're stressed? Generally, an increased pulse rate is a good indication that your adrenaline has gone up, but you can be stressed while having a normal pulse rate. Other giveaways are constant aches and pains, palpitations, anxiety, chronic fatigue, crying, over- or under-eating, frequent infections, and a decrease in your sexual desire. A good indication is if you feel like you're "out of it" and you lose interest in most things. You may find yourself grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw all the time, suffer from indigestion, muscle tension, trembling or shaking, and even inexplicable diarrhoea. If you experience all this or more, you don't need anyone to tell you that you really need to relax. If you don't make an effort to cut out the stress from your life, it could cause serious problems to your health and well-being. Start with your state of mind - be positive about things in life and accept that there are events that you cannot control. Don't let anger, frustration, or fear crowd your mind. Try to look for constructive solutions instead. Lifestyle choices can help your body fight stress. Exercise regularly so that your body is fit. Eat healthy, well-balanced meals to keep your energy levels up and your immune system strong. Get enough rest and sleep - this makes a huge difference in helping you recover from stress. Finally, make choices in life that are right for you. Know when to say "no" to requests that will cause excessive stress, and manage your time effectively to handle what you have on your plate. Know when to ask for help, either from friends, family, colleagues, bosses, or even health professionals such as your doctor or psychologist. Don't let stress run your life, or you will be constantly sick, tired and frustrated. What kind of life would that be
  16. I know the public transport system is getting pretty jammed nowadays but when has it been getting any better anyway! But more and more ppl ( involving Sillyporeans all the time) are getting into arguments and fights on public transportation....similiarly there are also just as many incidents involving drivers of other vehicles on the roads too! I think the peasants are getting nowhere near WORLD CLASS, as a matter of fact they are getting LOW CLASS! What do you think? http://multimedia.asiaone.com/Multimedia/V...81124-5062.html

  18. Hi all, I am new here, so please pardon me if I am asking ignorant questions. I just came back home in my 92 charade and I experience a funny problem with my car again today . Recently I sent my car to workshop for servicing. After that, my car sometimes (2-3 times a week) experience the below: Symptoms: 1. when car is moving or idling, the rpm meter from time to time jerks up and down. and when it reaches 0, the engine stalled. 2. when the above happens half of the time I will see the temp. meter rises from 30% to 75% very rapidly (in 2-3 seconds) 3. at that moment I will normally panick and switch off the air con. this helps to bring the temp. down a bit. but a few times I have to immediately search for a safe spot to switch off the engine (since the temp. indicate max) Very stressed... dunno why the above happens. Any comments?
