About 80.2 per cent of the graduates in the labour force secured permanent full-time jobs, a dip from the 83.1 per cent in 2015. According to the Singapore Yearbook of Manpower Statistics 2014 (page H30) – the median gross monthly starting salary of university graduates in full-time permanent employment was $2,750 in 2007.
Graduates’ real starting pay declined 2% last 9 years? Does this mean that their starting salaries increased by about 22 per cent ($3,360 divided by $2,750) in the last nine years? Since inflation was about 24.2 per cent from 2007 (CPI 79.65) to 2016 (CPI 98.932) – does it mean that in real terms – their starting salaries declined by about -2 per cent (24 – 22%) in the last nine years?
As a motorist, I seriously think that emergency vehicles should by given the priority to be travelling on the centre lane of the expressway and not on the right lane! Now, most of our expressway have only three lanes and to make them travel on the rightmost lane will only add to the time taken to reach the scene of destruction. Reason being, imagine if a casualty is in the leftmost lane and the ambulance is at the rightmost lane approaching, chances that the ambulance driver might miss the casualty as he/she might have those view obstructed by traffic in the center lane! Worse of all, it will be harder for us to give way to them as we only got one lane on our left to filter to instead of two lanes!
There is a major fire now happening at the Tuas Waste Management plant. Apparently, the affected plant belongs to the ECO Special Waste Management. SCDF personnel are at the scene of the fore, battling hard to put it out.
The police had also advised the public to avoid the area. The fire, which occurred early this morning, is so huge, it can be seen from afar.
According to the police, the total amount scammed was at least $7,700.These victims had been introduced to Grab/Uber promotional packages, and were asked to contact seller via WhatsApp, where they were further instructed to transfer money to bank accounts.After payment made, seller will disappear, and victims were not able to redeem rides they thought they had purchased.
It was a lucky break that the car that was crushed by bags of cement in a West Coast carpark was empty. Looking at the photos of teh car, if there was someon in that car, confirm up lorrry, due to cement dropped by lorry.
Now the question remains as to how this accident could have happened? Was the lorry driver and the crane operator negligent? The company that owns the lorry had refused to comment, so it seems likely that they know they are in the wrong.
Amos is presently in solitary confinement for criticizing Muslims & Islam during their Muslim Studies in jail. He is feeling terrible. "He attended a Muslim Studies class, in order to "disagree". There was a "Muslim pastor" from outside (not a prisoner) and about 18 Muslim prisoners in attendance. Amos called Allah a "sky wizard". He said that if the religion is 5,000 years old then it's "complete fucking garbage". (He said "fuck" a lot). The pastor said Amos was disturbing the peace or something and got Sergeant R.Henson to sign a form putting him in solitary. Amos is certain that he is in solitary for punitive reasons, not for his own protection. He has been in solitary for 3 days.

Media control has resulted, for instance, in prime-time fare on MediaCorp channels comprising almost entirely gameshows, sitcoms, and TV dramas. The few current affairs programmes on offer are effectively government infomercials. Decades of censorship and strict administration of Lee-ism have made Singapore virgin territory as far as critical thinking goes. It should be unneeded to point out that the dumbing down of society kneecaps our quest to transform our economy.
Trump's recent order against immigrants coming into the US has greatly affected me. I came to America after being arrested twice in my country of origin, Singapore, for criticizing the Singapore Government and religion, to seek asylum and finally live in a place where I'm able to exercise my free speech. Having to be sent to American jail for simply asking for protection in the US is bad enough, but the recent orders issued by Trump has now as you have evidently seen, leaves people who fought for free speech in their countries languishing in distress during their time of need, and unlike how the anti-SJWs use the term, Trump's actions are genuinely quite anti-free speech. Please share this post and tell your friends about this awful effect of Trump's actions.
