WOMAN SLEEPS OUTSIDE ENCLOSURE OF SINGAPORE ZOO

I visited the zoo and I was shocked to see a woman sleeping on the platform of the wolverine enclosure.

Tourists and visitors who walked pass had these reactions; laughed, smiled and gossiped to their partners.

It seems that her daughter tried to get her to sit up but after her daughter left, she lay down again.

I hope this is not the only impression that tourists will have of Singapore!

HOUGANG RESIDENTS SLEEPLESS BECAUSE OF NOISY PUB BELOW, POLICE COMPLAINTS USELESS

Attached is the video recording on how loud the noise from Obar pub at level 1 can be heard in our house at 780 Upper Serangoon Road. This can be heard at our house at level 3! The noise has reached 90 decibels and my young children cannot sleep. We have complained to SPF before but nothing was done. We have complained to Hougang NPCC many times (at least twice a week) and every time after the officers left the pub the noise is back to ridiculous levels.

INDIAN FTS GET DRUNK AT XMAS PARTY, INSULTS BOSS AND ASKS TO SLEEP WITH FEMALE COLLEAGUE

During our office christmas party, 2 of my Indian FT colleagues kept whacking the alcoholic drinks and drank alot of whiskey, tequila shots, beer and wine. Obviously they got drunk and cannot control and handle themselves after that. One of them went up to my boss and point middle finger and scold him stupid idiot. Another shameless one went up to my female colleague and said that he wants to sleep with her because she is pretty. When I heard it, I told my female colleague that she can report him to the police for sexual harrassment and she said that she will think about it. They will get into big trouble when they come back to office today. My boss already told us that he will be sacking the 2 of them because of their poor work performance and inappropriate behaviour.

TEO SER LUCK: MIGRANT WORKERS PREFER TO SLEEP WITHOUT MATTRESS BECAUSE IT IS MORE COMFY

When Teo Ser Luck visited their sparsely furnished sleeping quarters, he said: "Quite comfy! I learnt that some workers prefer to sleep without a mattress as they are used to it back in their home country. They find it more comfortable and cooler too!" We can't help but wonder when he tried to lie on their bed - which is nothing more than a wooden plank - did he find it comfortable? Or does he sleep on an expensive pocketed coil mattress with luxurious silk bedsheets back at home? Is this another case of Ministers living up in their ivory tower where they think that the poor elderly folks on the street collecting cardboard boxes do it as a form of exercise?

Use of smartphones leaves people disengaged

People can now leave their offices without fear of being disconnected from their work. Indeed, many would consider smartphones to be among the most important tools ever invented, when it comes to increasing the productivity of knowledge work. However, our new research indicates that greater connectivity comes at a cost: Using a smartphone to cram more work into a given evening results in less work done the next day. The reason for this is that smartphones are bad for sleep, and sleep is very important to effectiveness as an employee.
