  1. https://www.mycarforum.com/topic/2712580-ns-related-deaths/?p=6520443 So some trials are still ongoing but seems like my previous expectation was wrong. The main perp (person who pushed Yuen Chin) was sentenced to only 1 year+ in prison. Reckon the other guys are going to get away with slap on the wrists. IMO, this should have been classified as manslaughter. Sad.
  2. More changes to come for those boarding/landing flights from Changi Airport Terminal 4. To be more exact, the 6 months trial already started on the 25th of November. Went to Bangkok recently via AirAsia (Terminal 4) and was actually my first visit to T4. Pleasantly surprised that it is completely self-service and seamless from the check in kiosk, to the printing of boarding pass, baggage tag, bag drop machine. But these are not completely unique as other terminals like T1 if not all, already have have similar automations too. Even the biometrics used to scan passports are different in T4, albeit a little more inconvenient as we are required to remove our entire passport cover to scan. Not forgetting the automated security checks for baggage after clearing immigration. How cool. If I don't travel more often, I'm gonna be even more surprised with all the upgrades of our airports.

  4. SINGAPORE: New three-dimensional (3D) traffic calming markings, aimed at encouraging motorists to reduce speed, will be trialled along the Whampoa Drive Silver Zone towards the end of December. In a press release on Wednesday (Dec 5), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said the markings, which were adopted from Japan, are intended to encourage motorists to reduce their speed because of the perceived narrower lane width. "The trial will help LTA assess the effectiveness of these new markings," the press release added. Silver Zones are specially-demarcated areas in residential zones with a large population of elderly residents and a relatively high accident rate involving seniors. Accident rates within Silver Zones have been reduced by almost 75 per cent, with an average of 14 cases per year to 4 cases per year in the 15 completed Silver Zones. There are ongoing works for another 10 Silver Zones. Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/new-3d-traffic-markings-on-trial-to-reduce-motorists-speed-10999024
  5. SINGAPORE: Commuters may soon be required to put their belongings through an X-ray scanner and walk through a metal detector before entering fare gates at MRT stations. This is part of enhanced security screening being tested at several stations, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (Nov 5). The trial will begin on Nov 12. LTA said the data from the trial will enable it to "streamline and optimise its security screening processes, and reduce the future impact on daily rail operations". "We will also collect feedback from commuters and public transport operators to improve the effectiveness of future security operations and emergency exercises." LTA chief executive Ngien Hoon Ping said the authority will continue to enhance its security measures to ensure that the transport system remained safe and secure for all commuters. "By the end of this year, public transport operators will also progressively introduce the use of handheld metal detectors in their security checks at bus interchanges and MRT stations," he added https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/commuters-to-undergo-security-screening-at-mrt-stations-as-part-10898938
  6. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/government-to-conduct-trial-of-mobile-app-for-parking-charges-8848624 Government to conduct trial of mobile app for parking charges File photo of a carpark in Singapore (Photo: Francine Lim) 15 May 2017 04:51PM(Updated: 15 May 2017 05:10PM) Share this content SINGAPORE: The Government will be conducting a trial of a mobile application that will allow motorists to pay for their parking charges using their mobile devices. For a start, the app will be tested among public sector officers in May and June, at selected public car parks in the city area that still require paper coupons, announced the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the Housing and Development Board (HDB) and the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech) in a joint news release on Monday (May 15). The car parks include those in Amoy Street, Circular Road, Emerald Hill Road and Duxton Road. "The mobile app will provide more convenience for motorists as they need not return to their vehicles to add more coupons to extend their parking session," said the agencies. All motorists have to do is key their vehicle number into the app, select the car park, indicate their parking duration and start parking. According to the agencies, the app automatically calculates the charges that motorists have to pay based on their parking duration on a per minute basis. A refund will be given if they choose to leave the carpark earlier than the duration that was keyed in. Likewise, motorists can extend the duration of their parking session without having to return to the vehicle. Among the issues authorities said they will be testing is the payment module, "to be confident of its robustness before we extend the trial to the general public." They added that the plan is to extend the trial to members of the public later this year. Source: CNA/am

    China

    SHANGHAI—The former head of China’s biggest oil company went on trial Monday, marking the most senior-level prosecution of a Communist Party official since the country’s anticorruption drive began two years ago. Jiang Jiemin, former chairman of China National Petroleum Corp. who briefly ran the government agency that manages state-owned assets, appeared Monday morning in the Intermediate People’s Court in the central city of Hanjiang, according to information published online by the court. The court said Mr. Jiang faces charges related to taking bribes, holding a large amount of property that came from unidentified sources and abusing power while serving as an executive of a state-run company. The court didn’t identify the company or provide further details. In its brief morning release, the court said Mr. Jiang entered the courtroom with a lawyer who wasn’t immediately identified. Mr. Jiang hasn’t commented publicly or through a lawyer since he was detained 19 months ago. The party’s announcement in September 2013 that Mr. Jiang was suspected of severe disciplinary violations—a catchphrase for corruption—marked the downfall of a powerful party official. Mr. Jiang was later ejected from the party and formally charged with criminal acts. His court appearance Monday was his first during this period. The case is important in part for Mr. Jiang’s ties to a more senior party official who has also been ensnared in the anticorruption effort, former Politburo Standing Committee member Zhou Yongkang. Mr. Zhou, who in recent weeks was charged with corruption, had served as the oil company’s chairman, and he and Mr. Jiang worked together at the company. Mr. Zhou is expected to go on trial in the coming months. Though charges against Mr. Jiang had previously been announced, the date of his trial had not. The court said the trial is being attended by 76 people in total, including a number of politicians representing the national and regional legislatures and a government advisory body plus media and ordinary citizens. The court didn’t say how long the trial might last. Not Jiang Zhe Min
  10. LTA noted that ‘many commuters want to work and communicate while on the move’ in the Land Transport Master Plan. But free Wi-Fi service will not be available on trains during the trial. Come the middle of next year, commuters on the North East Line (NEL) can expect to have free Wi-Fi access on the go, under a trial by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) that is aimed at improving connectivity. The initiative was revealed in the Land Transport Master Plan 2013 released last week, with the LTA noting that “many commuters want to work and communicate while on the move”. The service would also be available on “major interchange stations”, but not during train rides. In response to TODAY’s queries, an LTA spokesperson said: “LTA will test the viability of Wi-Fi at underground stations on our MRT network to enhance wireless connectivity for commuters while (they are) waiting for trains. From mid-2014, we will carry out a trial by implementing Wi-Fi at stations along the North East Line and at major interchange stations.” The authority, however, did not specify what the major interchange stations were, adding that “more details will be provided when ready”. The trial is part of the LTA’s push for smart travel. In the master plan, the authority also revealed plans to improve its MyTransport.SG smartphone app in the next few years by rolling out services such as real-time bus and train-platform crowd updates to help commuters avoid congestion. Many countries in Asia have already started providing free Wi-Fi on their transport systems. Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway recently extended free Wi-Fi hot spots to all its stations, while the Tokyo Metro introduced a free Wi-Fi trial at 30 of its train stations this year. Members of Parliament (MPs) on the Government Parliamentary Committee (GPC) for Transport and experts TODAY spoke to generally welcomed the trial, noting that smartphone connectivity is increasingly becoming part of a good travel experience. Pointing to a recent report on the decreasing number of free Wireless@SG hot spots, former journalist and technology blogger Alfred Siew said the provision of additional free hot spots “is always good”. “But ... it might be good to extend it to inside trains, because that is where commuters spend most of (their) time when they are travelling,” he added. But this would “cost more or take more time to wire up all the tunnels, compared with just wiring up the stations”. Regular NEL commuters had mixed reactions to what some termed as a “value-added” service. Marketing executive Elvis Chiu, 29, felt the LTA should first focus on ensuring transport operators get the basics, such as train reliability, frequency and customer service, right. “Meanwhile, the telcos and train operators can work together to improve the signals and bandwidth underground,” he said. However, senior executive W Lim, 27, welcomed free Wi-Fi on platforms, given spotty 3G service on the NEL. She said: “It can be quite frustrating when whatsapp-ing friends to confirm meeting places, so free Wi-Fi will certainly help on occasions like these.” Tourists like Ms Sophie Hennessy, 26, from Australia, said free Wi-Fi would be helpful in accessing navigation apps. “With free access, I can search for directions to reach my destination,” she said. Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Ang Hin Kee, who sits on the GPC for Transport, said the LTA must ensure the effort is not a “cosmetic one which cannot support, say, more than 50 people logging on”. He added that the service was unlikely to lead to a fare increase, since the investment is made by the LTA and not the transport operators.

    MY : New Detention Without Trial Law

    MY to propose New Detention Without Trial again ...... Too much crimes and shooting cases recently ..... Yahoo news: Malaysian government proposes new detention without trial powers KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's government proposed an amendment to crime laws on Wednesday that would give authorities the power to hold suspects for years without trial, in what critics said was a lurch back to draconian security policies that were only recently eased. The government is justifying the proposed toughening of security laws as necessary to curb a rise in violent crime in recent months, including the murder of a prominent former banker in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, that has alarmed the public. But the move to amend the 1959 Prevention of Crime Act has political resonance in a country where tough security laws have been used in the past to detain opposition figures and government critics and following an election in May that deepened ethnic and political divisions. Prime Minister Najib Razak has moved to appease conservative factions in the ruling United Malays National Organization (UMNO) in recent weeks, signalling that the weak election victory has blunted his ability to push liberal reforms. Teo Nie Ching, an opposition member of parliament, said the new proposal appeared to be a "fundamental breach of human rights". "It seems we are going back to the time of the ISA (Internal Security Act) even though it is called prevention of crime," she told Reuters. The ISA, which allowed for indefinite detention, was among several tough security laws repealed by Najib in 2011. Under the amendment, a Prevention of Crime Board made up of three members and headed by a judge will be able to issue a detention order for two years, which could be renewed for two years indefinitely, according to a copy of the bill seen by Reuters. The detention could be ordered if the board is satisfied that it is "in the interest of public order, public security or prevention of crime", the draft bill says. more news, link: http://sg.news.yahoo.com/malaysian-governm...-073545511.html

  13. Feb 16, 2011 Anwar's trial: Medical form states sodomy was 'attempted' KUALA LUMPUR - MOHD Saiful Bukhari Azlan's medical proforma (form) stated that he was subjected to 'attempted' sodomy, the High Court heard on Wednesday. Hospital Kuala Lumpur Emergency Care Specialist Dr Khairul Nizam Hassan, when cross-examined by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's counsel Karpal Singh, agreed that the proforma stated 'attempted' sodomy and 'attempted' oral sex. 'So, there could not have been penetration. It says here, it's attempted,' Karpal said, grilling Dr Khairul on Wednesday. However, Dr Khairul maintained that Mr Saiful never used the word 'attempted' when he was interviewed by the doctors. In the proforma, which was made available to the press on Wednesday, it was also noted that there was 'full penetration', with 30 minutes of coitus. PKR adviser and Datuk Anwar, 63, is on trial for allegedly performing carnal intercourse against the order of nature on Saiful at a condominium unit in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, between 3.15pm and 4pm on June 26, 2008. -- THE STAR/ANN Attempted but not successful.

  15. Three years after the 'spygate' scandal of 2007, a case alleging sabotage by espionage conspirator Nigel Stepney began in Italy on Wednesday. As the Monaco paddock is set up on Wednesday, the case harks back to the fabled street race of 2007, with sacked former chief mechanic Stepney accused of trying to ruin Ferrari's chances by adding white powder to the fuel tanks. According to reports including by the ANSA news agency, the trial began on Wednesday in a court in Sassuolo, in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region. Briton Stepney did not appear in person, the German news agency SID reported. Source: GMM
  16. Bought a new Japanese paste wax for dark colored cars, that claimed to last 3mths and is water repellent. Did a preparation round of wash + SRP polish + liquid wax on the previous wk, and one wk later, washed the car and put on this new Jap wax. It was actually pretty easy to use, and as long as applied thinly, easy to buff off wif MF cloth as well, and smells of fresh lemon! After my ride was smooth and shiny, I parked it in my company's open carpark, under rain and shine... and this is the result 2 wks later... Water spots spotted on the bonnet, but only those on the top of the slope (nearer to windscreen) are more obvious. But the water spots on the boot are more obvious, probably becos the boot is level and water does not flow down easily. And the bottom of all doors are covered with muddy water spots fr driving through all the water paddles. Though my ride looks pretty bad wif all the water spots and a couple of bird shits on the roof, surprisingly the car is still rather shiny. So it's actually considered not so bad for a not-washed-for-2-wks car Then I washed my ride with shampoo, wash down and dried it, and the shine is back again! Like as if I've just waxed it! I'm not sure if it's really possible for this wax to last 3mths in our weather, but for the ease of use and shine that last, I think it's not so bad The only thing I dun understand is, why the Japanese must use diff wax for dark and light cars leh? Dun see why shd there be a diff unless they added some additives so that dark car wax makes a dark car looks darker and vice versa for light car wax? hmm...
  17. July 5, 2008 Why extend bike trial when it's a done deal? WHY extend the cycling-on-footpath trial in Tampines? Last Tuesday, the Minister for National Development, Mr Mah Bow Tan, announced a six-month extension of the trial ('Reckless cyclists in Tampines face penalties'). The trial, which started more than one year ago, allows cyclists to pedal on the town's footpaths, an act which is supposedly forbidden elsewhere in Singapore. Mr Mah added that, while the majority of residents responded well to the trial, it will be extended so more can be done to ensure that cyclists and pedestrians have an easier time on footpaths, for instance, widening footpaths and educating footpath users and cyclists. It is clear that much extra work is being done just to accommodate cyclists on footpaths so as to produce a successful trial. As the conclusion is clearly foregone, I see no merit whatsoever in wasting more time agonising over the trial results six months later. The reality on the ground is that all over Singapore, cyclists are already riding on footpaths, with the authorities taking no enforcement action. Let us not kid ourselves. Why don't we go ahead and spend money widening all the footpaths in Singapore for the benefit of both footpath users and cyclists?

  19. Details of what AWOL army corporal Dave Teo Ming, 20, did after running away from Mandai Hill Camp on Sept 2 last year emerged in court on Tuesday when his friend was convicted of being found in his company Several hours after returning home with the SAR-21 assault rifle and several rounds of ammunition, Teo went to a Geylang hotel at about 2.25am on Sept 3. He called his friend and regular pimp, Ong Boon Jun, 22, and asked him to send over a Thai prostitute who Teo had hired several times before In the hotel room, Teo assembled the rifle and loaded it with eight live rounds, including three he had kept from an earlier live-firing exercise. He hid the weapon with some pillows. After the prostitute arrived, Teo asked Ong to meet him in the room as he was going out for a while and did not want to leave her alone. Ong came shortly after and discovered the rifle when he rested on the bed. He quickly shooed the Thai woman into the toilet when Teo showed him the weapon and said he had stolen it from his camp to commit robbery. Teo then dismantled the rifle and placed the parts in a bag. He left the hotel at about 4.15am. Teo was later arrested with the rifle and bullets at about 8pm in the men's toilet on the third floor of Orchard Cineleisure at Grange Road. Ong was caught at about 3.45am the next day at Cantonment complex. His lawyers, Mr Amolat Singh and Mr Low Hui Hui, said the odd-job worker first met Teo in a pub about a year ago, and he later became his regular client. Mr Singh said Ong was completely shocked on seeing the rifle and told Teo not to act rashly. He also feared that Teo might take revenge on him for betraying him, said the lawyer. 'This is an unfortunate case of the accused being at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong person,' said Mr Singh. Ong will be sentenced next on Feb 25. He can be jailed for up to 10 years and given at least six strokes of the cane. Teo's next pre-trial hearing is set for March 6. He is charged with unlawfully carrying an assault rifle and possessing eight live ammunition rounds, as well as an unrelated offence of knife possession.
