On Sunday, a group of 70 people comprising police officers, park rangers, family and friends combed the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Dairy Farm and Singapore quarry area, Mandai, Zhenghua Park and the rail corridor areas. The group started at 9am and the search was called off at 4pm. As of today, there was still no news of Mr Steward Lee.
I have attached the letter in the mail and I would like to ask your advice on whether the school has such a right to make this statement, which shows that they are irresponsible and do not have a sense of duty in caring for their students. Is this a violation of the Child Care Act? I would like to ask if you think it is correct for ChildCare Center to relieve all their responsibilities in taking care of our kids while on excursion.
It states that “from 2002 to end-2015, about $2.6 billion have been collected in premiums for ElderShield insurance and around $100 million have been paid out in claims, adding that about $130 million in premium rebates have been given to policyholders so far, the first tranche in 2007 and another in 2012. This is is his response to questions filed by NCMP Assoc Prof Daniel Goh Pei Siong who asked the Minister for Health since the inception of ElderShield in 2002 what has been the total ElderShield premiums paid, what is the total surplus collected by the ElderShield insurers, what is the total surplus returned to members as premium rebates, and what is the payout ratio and profit margin of each of the ElderShield insurers.”
15 years to get revelationary statistics? Don’t you find it kind of funny that it took about 15 years for the right question to be asked in Parliament, in order to get such revelationary statistics?
Good to know that even though Singapore places its values on grades, there are still avenues to get a place in our local universities if you are talented enough in your chosen field, such as the arts and sports. This will only encourage students that being creative and good in their other fields are also ways to get to that dream degree of theirs. After all, why should grades be the end all and be all for everything?
Travelling towards Little India station, the moving train emergency braked. A lot of passengers fell down including me. When I said fell down, I mean FLAT on the ground. Imagine the impact of the e-brakes.
No aftermath announcements, no explanations, no offer to first aid to those who fell. And Downtown line trains have CCTV, so the officers know what's happening. Feedback to Bugis station passenger office, a Singaporean Chinese male officer. He said he knows the e-brake was applied due to the train in front was slowing down. He claimed the system did not allow announcements to be made. He brushed me off by saying the emergency brakes have to be applied, better than having a collusion. If the train in front is already slowing down, why shouldn't our train slow down sooner but have to apply e-brakes? Are we waiting for a disaster to happen before our concerns should be addressed?
Please help me spread this gold digger from Thailand. This girl goes by name Sandy in English and nickname Eyetim is cheating my brother money. I am so lost and wonders why does she do this. Pretend to fall for someone.
Got him to buy gifts for her. Charles & Keith, Maybelline and other makeups. Buy her bus tickets to her home town. Its a matter of time for him to pay for her house in Thailand.
Dear Parents, kindly join our hands into relating to the relevant authorities that CCTV SHOULD and MUST be installed in every childcare centres in Singapore. They should make it a compulsory thing. Add in that relevant authorities should make and do more unannounced spot checks on cc centres be it to check their teachers' standard or hygiene standard.
PM Lee Hsien Loong should seriously review its relationship with Israel. We hold the innate view that Singapore should continue its neutrality, befitting to humanistic principles, towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict without the need to break existing bilateral ties with the State of Israel. On that note, we applaud our government’s effort and diplomatic engagement in finding ways to seek a peaceful resolution to the ongoing Palestinian occupation. We acknowledge our relationship with Israel spanned from the time our armed forces was in its foundation stage. However, we should not turn a blind eye to Israel’s unacceptable conduct and stance with regards to its Palestinian Occupation.
But what got me really pissed off then and even now is the fact conglomerate Comfort DelGro had the audacity to send its lawyers, namely United Legal Alliance at first to try and pressure me into accepting only $10k for the death of my father as he was deemed old and in their opinion, did not have long to live anyway.
The same occurred to a friend whose mother was the unfortunate victim in the Hep C negligent case of SGH. He accepted the $10k 'compensation' as he had no money to take on MOH and was afraid the case will end up like Dr Ting vs MINDEF where money is used and rubber stamped by the PAP appointed Judiciary to delay proceedings. SGH had told him that his mother who is a kidney patient, has a very low quality of life and is thus not worth much in the Ministry's opinion.
