  5. 法官说他有同理心 阿窿跑腿免坐牢 逃过牢狱之灾!私召车司机当阿窿跑腿骚扰欠债人;但却在锁门、留字条、拍视频后,自行清理现场再离开。 法官因此认为他手法“另类”有同理心,网开一面判他缓刑监视24个月。 被告陈玮翔(20岁)共面对5项控状,指他在去年11月9日至今年1月9日两个月内,当阿窿跑腿,骚扰4户人家。 案情显示,年纪轻轻的被告染上赌瘾后,2014年起经常在网上下注赌博,输钱后向朋友借钱度日。 2017年8月,他在网络平台Carousell上看到一则放贷广告,开始向名为“Kelvin”的阿窿借钱,之后没钱偿还,便当起阿窿跑腿来抵债。 他骚扰人的手法却“与众不同”,先在受害人家的门口,用脚车锁链锁铁门,放讨债字条,再拍视频传给阿窿。“自导自拍”视频后,他就把锁链和字条拿走,将“案发现场”清理干净才离开。阿窿则将视频转发给欠债人。 然而,上得山多终遇虎,1月9日,他在兀兰41街的组屋单位外干案后,受害人报警。 警方通过电眼发现他所开的私召车,确认他的身份后将他逮捕。被告本身也从事搬运的工作。 法官下判时指出,阿窿跑腿一般上会判坐牢至少一年,被告的行为虽对受害人构成骚扰,但此“另类”干案手法既没将器具留在现场,也让受害者免于遭受羞辱,或因邻居发现而尴尬,显示被告有同理心可改造。念及他年纪尚轻,判他缓刑24个月。 完整报道,请翻阅2018年9月19日的《新明日报》。
  6. 阿嫲家当毒品经销站 两孙遭突击逮捕 肃毒局前天展开突击行动逮捕四名男子,其中两名相信是兄弟的男子,怀疑用阿嫲家当“毒品经销站”,叫瘾君子上门来交易。 中央肃毒局昨天发文告说,当局前天在突击行动中,起获约803克海洛英及5克冰毒,市值大约5万6000元,而803克海洛英就足以让382名瘾君子用上一个星期。 肃毒局警员前天中午在文礼道一带,先是逮捕一名涉嫌吸毒的52岁男子,并从他身上搜出一小包海洛英。 经过初步调查,当局发现该男子的毒品是向附近组屋一名毒贩购买的,于是找上毒贩位于四楼的住家。 组屋里的人在肃毒局人员表明身份后拒绝开门,肃毒人员屡劝不果,最后强行进入单位,逮捕一名55岁男子和一名63岁男子,并在前者身上搜出少量海洛英和冰毒,同时在单位里找到47克海洛英及5克冰毒。 执法人员过后连单位的垃圾槽也一并搜查,结果从一堆垃圾里找到两大包用报纸包裹、重达756克的海洛英。 一般相信,屋里的人惊觉肃毒局人员敲门,情急之下才把装有毒品的包裹丢进垃圾槽。 《联合晚报》昨晚(9月18日)走访上述地点,发现没有太多居民知情当天肃毒局警员前来展开突击行动,因事发时是中午时分,同一楼层的多数居民已上班。 据观察,被取缔的单位,其门框留下被撬痕迹,但门柄和锁头都应换成新的。 据知情的邻居透露,单位里住着一名年约90岁的阿嫲,她出租屋里的一间房,多个孩子没有跟她同住。 不愿具名的邻居表示,屋内被捕的两男相信是阿嫲的两个孙子,他们偶尔会过来,但都是在中午或凌晨,人少或僻静的时候上门。 警方逮捕了上述三个人后,也在执法过程中,发现一名51岁男子在附近巴士行径鬼祟,而且不时注视警方执法,于是上前拦查对方,最后因怀疑他吸毒而将他逮捕,案件还在调查中。 完整报道,请翻阅2018年9月19日《联合晚报》。
  7. China could be exposed in trade war as US allies choose compromise Trump pressure on partners pays off as they succumb to the art of the deal https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/2164904/china-could-be-exposed-trade-war-us-allies-choose-compromise
  8. China’s running out of US goods to tax, so what other ways can it hit back in the trade war? Debate starts to focus on alternative ways to hurt America, ranging from targeting specific imports with higher tariffs to making the exports the US wants the most more expensive Fresh ideas about how to fight the trade war with the US have begun to fly in China after Beijing was unable to respond in full to the latest escalation in the dispute because it is rapidly running out of room to use tariffs as a weapon. US President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he would impose 10 per cent tariffs on US$200 billion Chinese imports on September 24, with the tariff rate rising to 25 per cent on January 1 next year if China does not make concessions. Combined with the previous US$50 billion tariffs on Chinese imports, about half of all Chinese exports will be effected by the measures. Trump has further threatened to target to all Chinese imports unless China agrees to settle the dispute. The Chinese response to Trump’s latest move was on a far smaller scale – tariffs of between 5 per cent and 10 per cent on US$60 billion of American goods and it is now running out of leeway to target US imports further. When the latest levy goes into force on Monday, US$110 billion of the total US$150 billion in American imports to China will be affected. Tariffs on the remaining US$40 billion – including key manufacturing components such as semiconductors – would hamstring Chinese manufacturers. It’s becoming increasingly clear to Chinese officials that the chances of a swift end to the trade war are diminishing rapidly, forcing them to explore new ways to respond. Arthur Kroeber, research head and co-founder of the financial services company Gavekal, noted that Chinese leaders’ previous tactics – including “a few buying missions” to Washington, a red-carpet welcome for Trump in Beijing and an attempt to cut a deal with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin – had all failed. “China will respond with its own tariffs, start squeezing US companies where it can, and dig in for a war of attrition,” Kroeber predicted. The focus of debate in China is shifting to finding new ways of hurting the US. Government officials and state media are proposing, among other things, embargoing exports of certain important components to the US and levying “asymmetrical” tariffs on US products – putting different tariff rates on different products. An opinion piece published on the official social media account of People’s Daily, the Chinese Communist Party’s official mouthpiece, argued on Wednesday that China must go beyond the dollar-for-dollar tariff tactics, since China cannot match Washington in a tit-for-tat battle. But the opinion piece, published under a pen name, said China could not “seek revenge” in terms of quantity, but could “pick its own battles” and fight on in its own way. The piece argued that China could impose relatively low tariffs on imported US materials for which it is “hard to find alternatives” and charge much higher tariffs on products such as “raw materials with easy alternatives, luxury items and discretionary consumer product and manufactured products that are in direct competition with China’s own manufacturers”. Nearly 300 Chinese products were fully or partially removed from the original tariffs list after lobbying by US businesses. One of the items dropped was rare earth metals – a vital mineral for hi-tech manufacturers of which China is the world’s biggest exporter. Smart watches and Bluetooth gadgets were also exempted, partly at the urging of tech giant Apple, along with health and safety products like bicycle helmets and high chairs for children. “There will be no winner in the trade war, but regarding these [exported] products, China’s marginal loss will be small but US’s marginal loss will be big,” Lou said. The People’s Daily article also argued that China could take advantage of the trade war by replacing imported products with home-made ones. Much of China’s retaliatory tariffs have been aimed at US agriculture and energy products, many of which come from states that strongly supported Trump in the 2016 presidential election. The US president has expressed fury that China is targeting his supporters, tweeting on Monday: “China has openly stated that they are actively trying to impact and change our election by attacking our farmers, ranchers and industrial workers because of their loyalty to me.” He threatened that “there will be great and fast economic retaliation” if they continued to be targeted.

  11. THIS IS TRUlee SHOCKING COMING FROM A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY ............ “While I understand that there is immense pressure on the public transport system, as well as the people who rely on it to get to work, there is no excuse for this type of behavior. I shudder to think of the consequences if that vehicle had to be in a collision. Incidents like these do nothing for the reputation of the taxi industry, and so I also call on owners and associations to address this type of lawlessness.” INSTEAD OF DECRYING people can choose to board the taxi or not board the taxi or the taxi industry CUNT cope if all commuters choose to board at the same time. WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SINKINGPOOOORAH, FIRST WORLD TO FISHING VILLAGE ! GREEDY CORRUPT JIAK SAI peeApee miniTARDS WITH FIRST WORLD MENTAleeTY. WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA
  12. 7 in 10 retrenched workers in Singapore helped by taskforce found jobs within 6 months SEVEN in 10 retrenched workers who were helped by a dedicated taskforce last year were able to find jobs within six months. A total of 9,120 Singaporeans were retrenched from 1,247 companies last year, said the Taskforce for Responsible Retrenchment and Employment Facilitation, which shared its latest figures on Wednesday. About a quarter of them agreed to get employment assistance, which includes job matching, after they were contacted by the taskforce. The rest said that they would like to find employment on their own or take a break from work. The taskforce also found that 90 per cent of the companies who cut workers paid retrenchment benefits to eligible local employees last year, which was similar to previous years. Those who were eligible had at least two years of service in the company. "The proportion of establishments that paid retrenchment benefits by years of service has risen, with better economic conditions," the taskforce said in its statement. Companies who did not pay retrenchment benefits cited financial constraints as among their key reasons. Last year, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM) and the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (Tafep) received 74 cases of retrenchment-related disputes from employees. A majority of the cases involved appeals over the quantum of retrenchment benefits, while some involved alleged discriminatory retrenchment practices. All of the cases were resolved through mediation, adjudication or engagements with employers, the taskforce said. Workforce Singapore (WSG) chief executive and taskforce chairman Tan Choon Shian said that the taskforce was able to get more timely and complete information to help Singaporeans find new jobs, after the mandatory retrenchment notifications took effect from Jan 1 last year. Companies with at least 10 employees are required to notify MOM if five or more of their employees are retrenched within any six-month period. Mr Tan said that many job-seekers and hiring companies tapped WSG's Adapt and Grow programmes and services to facilitate the job matches. "It was important that such individuals and employers kept open mindsets and were prepared to accept potential recruits or hiring opportunities that may not have seemed like obvious fits in the first instance," he added. The taskforce will continue to educate companies on responsible retrenchment practices, and improve its outreach and assistance to retrenched Singaporeans, he said. The taskforce was formed by the Government in March 2016 to help Singaporeans get back to work. It comprises representatives from MOM, WSG, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and NTUC's Employment and Employability Institute (e2i). Commenting on the work of the taskforce, NTUC assistant secretary-general Patrick Tay said in a Facebook post on Wednesday that he was glad to see closer coordination with employers to ensure that affected workers receive the necessary retrenchment package and assistance for employment. “While the market is recovering, there are still uncertainties, disruptions and restructuring which may result in pockets of layoffs across various sectors,” he said. More can be done to encourage and support employers to train and upskill their workers pre-emptively, and retrench only as a last resort, he added. “And if they do retrench, to do it fairly, responsibly and progressively,” he said. He urged employers and workers to embrace future changes and disruptions with the right attitude and right mindset, and to see the period as an opportunity to reinvent themselves to be relevant. Mr Tay said in his post that the labour movement will continue to work closely with its tripartite partners to take care of workers’ welfare, wages and work prospects.
