Teacher jailed for six months for committing indecent acts on 13-year-old boy

A 42-year-old teacher was jailed for six months on Wednesday for committing indecent acts on a 13-year-old boy who was studying in the same school. She had pleaded guilty on Feb 5 to kissing him on the lips and giving him love bites on his neck and shoulder. In passing sentence, District Judge Ng Peng Hong noted that the case involved "the sexual grooming of a young victim by a teacher" and said that a jail sentence was appropriate as it is the public policy to protect the young and vulnerable.

HALIMAH YACOB SHOULD JOIN OPPOSITION SO SHES CAN SPEAK OUT MORE FREELY

One of my Malay friend lamented that ever since the Hijab incident happened and the shutting down of the Facebook Day of World Hijab Day by MDA (Click on http://therealsingapore.com/content/world-hijab-day-singapore-facebook-p...), she wished that her heroine Halimah Yacob could say or speak out against her boss, PM Lee. This Malay friend used to know Halimah Yacob back in her NTUC union days when Halimah was a young union worker. Sometimes, when Singaporeans are retrenched and meet her at the Meet-the-MP session, she will always try to forward their CV to NTUC Unions and Co-operatives to help them get a better job etc.

CHANGI VILLAGE

From the days of attap to Nasi Lemak, Changi Village remains a quiet little getaway that has stayed relatively untouched since its last major re-development in the early 1970s when a total of six four-storey flats were built to replace the attap houses that once stood.. Most Singaporeans would have been to Changi Village at least once in their lives, be it for Outward Bound or 4-D pilgrimages to Pulau Ubin, or simply to fulfill that gastronomical desire at Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak or Wing Kee’s Ipoh Hor Fun.

A sales executive has been given a week's jail for trespassing into a women's toilet in a commercial building in Jurong on two occasions.

SINGAPORE 'LOW' ON CRIME RATE, VERY HIGH ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE?

When I read the article yesterday "AMAZING! AS SG POPULATION INCREASES, CRIME RATE DROPS!", I couldn't agree more with the author's frustration and suspicions at such statements by the police and the govt. I can tell you it is worst than that. Let me add another dimension that is just as alarmingly significant but seldom mentioned in order to keep the 'ideal family unit' that PAP tries to impose on unwilling innocent victims - domestic violence. This coincides with the recent article: http://www.divaasia.com/article/6151 that reveals the loopholes in our justice system.

Multiplayer shooters Evolve into something bigger

Think of it as a boss fight for the four players, except the boss is controlled by a player, not the computer. As far as I can tell, there’s no much story behind Evolve (yet): Four hunters — a trapper, support, assault and medic — team up to take down a beast on the planet Shear. The environment serves as hiding places for the monster, who can also hunt prey and feed on them (or feed on the humans, if they get killed) before getting enough nutrition to, well, evolve into a bigger beast with more powers.

Mass fish deaths: AVA to fund 70% of re-stocking cost for affected farmers

The Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) yesterday laid out how it is assisting fish farmers affected by the mass die-offs earlier this month to re-stock their farms. The AVA will source for and facilitate the bulk purchase of quality fish fry and fingerlings, said a National Development Ministry spokesperson last night. In addition, the AVA will co-fund 70 per cent of the cost of the fry and fingerlings, with farmers paying the rest.
