ALFIAN SAAT: MOST S'POREANS SUPPORT THE HINDU'S RIGHT TO RELIGION

To my Hindu friends, I just want to say that I believe that the majority of Singaporeans do not support this kind of heavy-handed and iron-fisted approach to a community's religious rights. I think I speak on their behalf when I say that the government is not acting on our behalf with this ban. What is the whole point of having 'Inter-Racial and Religious Circles' when the state can't recognise the fundamental religious liberties of a community?

I came around this facebook page GM Pheonix which appears to be an community page for the online shooting game Blackshot Online.

Uber is launching a “panic button” and other safety features for users in India, following news that Mumbai was readying a ban on the ride-sharing service. The move also follows concerns about Uber’s practices in the wake of rape allegations against a driver in New Delhi last year.

TEO SOH LUNG: ROY SHOULD BE TREATED WITH MORE COURTESY BY DREW & NAPIER

I think it is wrong for a reputable law firm to display such unnecessary, high and mighty conduct towards a person who is not trained in the law, who does not understand legal etiquette and whose sole intention was to settle his costs. I am sure the receptionist at Drew & Napier was well intentioned when she/he gave the telephone number of the secretary of the prime minister’s lawyer to Roy.

As soon as clothing became the norm, taking that clothing off became a profitable gig for anyone willing to learn how to do it well. But despite the venerable legacy of this career, and the utter ubiquity of strip clubs in our modern cityscapes, most people know very little about the realities of dancing naked (or naked-ish) for money.
