PHILIPPINES MILITARY CLAIMS SINGAPOREANS AMONG THOSE FIGHTING FOR ISIS

According to the Philippines military, the foreign fighters also included some from Singapore. If this is true, then the Philippines military better let Singapore's authorities know who these people are. If Singaporeans are involved in ISIS linked activities overseas, then we have the right to know. First thing, Philippines is not that far away from Singapore.

Secondly, if these Singaporeans are really fighting under the ISIS flag, then how did they became embroiled in the first place? Are there any more of these Singaporeans with ISIS ideology who are actually still in Singapore, waiting for the right time to strike? And if it is true that there are Singaporeans involved in ISIS activities, don't this people have family in Singapore? Would their families also hold similar ideology?

All these needs to be addressed quickly. After the Manchester attacks, we should not take anything for granted. If it is true that there are Singaporeans fighting for ISIS, then the authorities better know about them, and better do something about it. he threat is real, we should not take anything for granted.

DON'T TARGET US MOUNTAIN BIKERS, GO CATCH THOSE EBIKES INSTEAD

A reader is against the requirement for mountain bikes to have handlebars shorter than 700mm. He thinks having a longer handlebar will provide more stability when cycling and would rather the LTA catch those errant ebikers instead. "Shouldnt LTA be educating pedestrian as well? Most pedestrian are hogging up the entire pavement, walking in all direction, and causing misunderstanding between cyclists and pedestrian. Not all cyclist are dangerous, most of the mountain bikers that ride the local trails respect the pedestrian and care for the safety. Do not let one reckless cyclist give you the idea that the whole cycling community is dangerous!"

GRABTAXI SHLD BENEFIT FROM SURGE PRICING TO PREVENT CHEAPSKATES

Grab is not being fair to us taxi drivers! They should put in the surge to GrabTaxi as well not be just surging GrabCar and justgrab! I find it really unfair for us as we are earning lesser because of this. Putting in surge for GrabTaxi as well will make things better for us taxi drivers as well as passengers are left with no choice but to pay for the surge when they book either a car or taxi! Of course cabbies like me on justgrab and GrabTaxi platforms will feel shortchanged! Now I urge LTA to step in now and make grab impose surge pricing on GrabTaxi too, Toa will deter people from being cheapskates! Desperate already still want to save???

ARE WE READY TO HANDLE SECURITY ISSUES IN BIG INTERNATIONAL EVENTS?

In Singapore, are we really ready to tackle such issues? We have been force fed the SG Secure tag everywhere we turn, where the tagline is "Not if but when it happens". This seems apt. Singapore has it's fair shares of big concerts an events, and we will still have these events coming up throughout the year. The F1 race, concerts by Britney Spears and Foo Fighters, the football tournaments at the National Stadium in July. Are our security up to standards? Judging from the past recent concerts we had, maybe security is still a major issue.

An example is the recent Guns N Roses concert. Apparently, the staff from local event organiser LAMC Productions were surprised when security personnel did not check ticket-holders with handheld detectors at recent concerts. In the concert area, they also spotted security staff watching the performers on stage, and not looking out for potential danger signs, suspicious characters or unattended bags in the crowd. And are security staff properly trained to handle security issues? After all, they are not law enforcement officers. Most of them are likely part timers, out to make a quick buck, while also getting an opportunity to catch a show for free. And are there really enough security personnel for big events like this?
