Posted in: Abe promotes shinkansen technology to Singapore See in context


To commemorate the occasion, Lee received one of Japan’s highest awards on behalf of his father, late Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, who founded Singapore*

Wrong. The late Mr Lee is not the founder of Singapore. It's Raffles from 200 years ago.

Most likely a terminal illness issue. Wife pleaded to die peacefully in bed. Husband later joined her. RIP.

@strangerland & Japan T

Ok ok i felt responsible for the arguments between the two of u... :D

Anyway, as long as bicycles and motor vehicles continue to share a road, there will always be fatalities.

The best solution hopefully will be the segregated cycling lanes on roadways as seen in some European and US cities.

Anyone here uses those before?

Posted in: 7-month-old baby killed after mother knocked off bicycle by car See in context

I am not boasting about my own country, but here in Singapore, bicycles can always choose to ride on the sidewalks/pedestrian pavement instead of on the roads. You will never find mothers with children riding on roads.

Doesn't Japan even have designated cycling lanes? I will shudder to ride my bicycle on roads with a ten wheeler zooming past me by just mere inches...

I am surprised that most of us have forgotten the low oil prices are caused by the US, as a desperate resort to punish Putin on his adventures in Ukraine and the Middle east

"The law allows Internet service providers to delete suspected revenge porn images without the uploader’s consent, if the images are still there TWO days after a complaint is made"

2 days are too long in internet time. Hardcore porno fiends will download the images in a few hours...

Take note that the government has not decided to file criminal charges YET on the companies. Most likely the police and the prosecutor's office are compiling evidence for a court hearing.

@toshiko - don't get me wrong, I can tolerate homosexuality if it is not too publicly overt (we can be colleagues or aquaintance) But I still cannot accept it personally. I just wished people will stop imposing their views on us folks who think that way...
