Within a short period of June, there are already three cases of ofo bicycles abuse that resulted in police arrest. Two of the cases are bicycles being thrown down from high level and this might result to injury or even death if the bicycle had hit a passer-by.
There are two questions that the authorities should answer. First, are they waiting for something to happen before they do something with all this bicycles. The authorities should worked with the bicycle rented companies and come out with a proper solution. Second, why is the person, filming the 13 years old boy throwing the bicycle down, not arrested by police.
I understand that the news of the Lee family issues are indeed hot topic but this is a on going issue that the authorities should look into it. I do not wish to see anyone being hurt during any of the bicycle abuse accident.

It's painfully ironic when rabid pro-PAP media like Fabrications About The PAP and rabid anti-PAP media like States Times Review start accusing one another of fake news. When you believe that complex facts can be distilled and spun into a simple conclusion, That the truth comprises of selectively collaged photos, distorted figures, quotes taken out of context, out of whack insinuations, and motherhood statements that all conveniently fit into your political narrative,

Residents of the 38 storey block of flats are often left disappointed and frustrated that they are facing lift problems so soon after moving in. Lifts A and B serve the ground floor and the 21st to 38th storeys. Lifts C and D serve the ground floor to the 20th storey. The lifts are from Sigma Elevator, which had been banned from tendering for new HDB projects since October 2015 due to poor performance and installation delays. They had managed to secure this project before the ban took into effect. Residents are also left worried that they might get trapped in the lift, especially those pregnant and the elderly. As a precaution, some residents have taken it upon themselves to text their family members to inform them they are in the lift, just in case a breakdown happens.

A man of global fame, built up a country rich and strong, controlled and influenced almost every aspect of citizens' lives, from birth, to education, to marriage, buying a property, how to retire, how to fall sick and even where to rest after death. He is sometimes called a benovolent dictator, and yet the old man couldn't escape from petty domestic squabbles over his house. For all his intellectual might and decisiveness, he had to flip flop his will 6 or 7 times?? Why can't he make up his mind and spare us his family drama? Was he even clear minded? Or all his children and daughter-in-laws were all over him?
