    • A resident of England was able to take a picture of an albino squirrel, living in a city park. But the image of the small mammal with a rare mutation does not look as nice as you can imagine. Instead, I remember that they are often compared to conventional urban mice.

      Tim Clifton from Sussex was able to take pictures of a rare albino squirrels, which they have seen several times in the Hastings town park. When the man realized it, he at first did not understand what kind of animal, and rodents mistaken for a seagull. Identified a protein, Tim took some pictures while she begged the man for a meal (like the usual urban protein).

      -When I saw him, I could not believe it. I thought how big he is. I sat down on the bench, and he came up to me. He looked at me as if to say, “You have something for me-Mr. Said Clifton’s publication.

    • Sunset??? no lah, cdg still come out with new Ionic Hyundai cab leh.

      Only a 1000 gone, no a big problem, and most of them are because of old age and health issue, if fact, with lesser cab, we get less competition, the youngs like UG, kenna chop with surge price, they also call, but remember, our old are more than the young, if not why school and JC hv to merge.

      Yesterday nite, one young sweet girl I pick from kallang bahru, destination Bukit Panjang, I asked her, why u, like all other youngsters use Grab or Uber, she said, those are blind rats following each other, in fact, why I flag for taxis is because JG, grabcar all surged, now flag down is the cheapest…so you think SUNSET??

    • Actually, it's a waste that the Institutes of Technical Education and the Polytechnics never specialise on just one technology group (eg. Arts).

      Instead, every institution offers the same kind of courses, and there is no uniform standard across all institutions.

      Nonetheless, the damage is done. It's too costly to change the format.

      The best way now is to merge similar courses within an institution, and implement a common syllabus across all institutions that offer that course.

    • The Singaporean forums also can merge… currently, there are around five forums, but the number of participants only so many. a lot of duplication… not efficient… it would be good if the five forums can merge into one…

      10 days 100K flat fare job.  That mean each only 10K.  So with 16000 taxis, at least 40% did not have this flat fare job. 


      How many of flat fares job are from normal booking? Is the overall booking increase? Cannot share. If tell u the truth then u know the true color.

Worse case scenario, maybe some ITE, e.g the previous ITE College West might be the actual institutions that has chance of 'phase out' for any importment change in education.

      ITE already merge already what...

      In fact, they are the first to merge...

      Previously, there were many ITE colleges all over the place...

      Then they merge everything into North, South, East, West...

      They should have done that for the neighbourhood JCs... or maybe that's what they are doing...

      By now, it should be obvious that the Polytechnics will also merge. But considering the complexity, they would probably phase out the current cohort of a Polytechnic, before they merge that Polytechnic into another Polytechnic. As such, it would probably not happen until 2021, or beyond.

      Aiyo, you do business or not, if I cannot compete with you or that you are blocking my business, if I got $$, why not sit down and we discuss take over, I paid you, you happy become rich and offload all yr work, I take over, no more competition, or lesser, in the market, you see many companies are doing this, big fish eat small fish, and it is also an economic of scale to let one run the show than so many doing it.

    • Grab is a tech coy, not taxi coy, in competitive industrial, the big fish will eat the smaller fish first, then become bigger, then will go find bigger fish to eat until they become the biggest.

      Grab will not go an run a taxi coy, which to them, is an old and out of date industrial, if I can kill off 3,400 taxis and covert them into car for drivers to rent and use my apps, why I need to do taxi business which is lan pa pa lan.

      And furthermore, the selling came to a standstill is because GRAB put it upfront that THEY DO NOT WISH TO EMPLOY THE SMRT STAFFs. Meaning, about few hundreds of SMRT taxi staff will hv to go, including their servicemen and repair centres..from director to cleaner…all gone. This is the cutting point to show you all that GRAB is a tech coy, not a taxi Coy, and that they will kill off SMRT taxis for good.
