The aftermath of the accident indicated that the dead wild boar had also suffered a broken leg. However, reports indicated that the driver of the vehicle was not hurt. Apaprently, the wild boar had dashed into the middle of the road, and the car that hit it could not stop on time. Acres and AVA did not receive any calls regarding the accident, and the driver had already left the scene when reporters reached there.
While some are making fun of this situation, a wild animal running lose on the expressways are no joking matter. They may contribute to a road user actually getting seriously hurt. Authorities have adviced that any animals that are hit on the road t be left alone, and to let the relevant authorities deal with them, as they can be dangerous especially when hurt.
The 100 mice + 23 rabbits rescue has gone viral! It was published in various local newspapers today and received multiple coverage on social media. We believe the 'gross' factor has definitely hit MAX and garnered the attention of the public. Our biggest question after reading all these articles is: Where is Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA)? For an emergency crisis that involved hundreds of domesticated pets' lives, the agency has yet to voice their plan of action.
I refer to the article “Reliability of North-South and Circle MRT Lines improves; East-West Line maintains same standard” (Straits Times, Apr 24). It states that “In the year ending Q1, the NSL clocked an average of 180,000km before a delay lasting more than 5 mins, bettering the 156,000km registered in the year ending Q4, 2016.”
Police have been alerted about more scams impersonating police officers to the public. This time around, fake emails from scammers impersonating the Traffic Police have been doing their rounds. In a press release, the police indicated that the email would typically claim that the recipient needed to pay a parking fine and appear in court. It would also provide a link to a website and a phone number to call to pay the "fine" via credit card.
Police have today clarified that no government agency will ask for payment through a telephone call, especially to a third party's bank account. The email address, website and phone number does not belong to the Singapore Police Force.
MOE says that they chose the JCs to merge by geographical spread. This is PR spin. But PR spin has to be believable. As many have pointed out, Hwa Chong and NJC are right across the road from each other.
It is obvious that the JCs chosen were the least popular by cut-off points. There is nothing wrong with that. So just admit it instead of spinning an incredulous story.
SMRT has released its report on their train performances and indicated that The reliability of the North-South (NSL) and Circle MRT Lines (CCL) has seen a marked improvement in the year up to Q1, while the East-West Line (EWL) has maintained its current level of performance.
So, breakdowns are still happening, but at a shorter rate, and less of them are happening. That is a marked improvement, and SMRT must go and report and hope the public clap for them. Actually, if breakdowns still occur, don't even need to talk about improvement in performance. People will always remember the MRT trains for another breakdown that causes them to be late for work or school.
