The driver of the SUV that plunged into the sea after the collision with the Vios at 2.54am on Sunday (Jan 20) has been identified as college student Moey Yun Peng, 20.

Investigations revealed that both drivers are childhood friends and believed to have been speeding towards the mainland before the collision which led to the SUV losing control, swerving into the left barricade and plunging into the sea.

The duo had earlier attended a friend's birthday party at a club in Chulia Street in George Town with other friends who live on the island.

https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/technology/facebook-s-whatsapp-limits-text-forwards-to-five-recipients-to-curb-rumours-11148686

Facebook Inc's WhatsApp messenger service is globally limiting the number of times a user can forward a message to five, in a bid to fight "misinformation and rumours", company executives said on Monday.

"We're imposing a limit of five messages all over the world as of today," Victoria Grand, vice president for policy and communications at WhatsApp, said at an event in the Indonesian capital.

Previously, a WhatsApp user could forward a message to 20 individuals or groups. The five-recipient limit expands globally a measure WhatsApp put into place in India in July after the spread of rumours on social media led to killings and lynching attempts.








It is a little too late for those whose lives were changed, reputations were hurt or were ruined financially by such rumours don't you think? ???

They really need to penalize not only the originators but those who spread them unthinkingly ...

SYLVA LIM AN EVASIVE WITNESS: AHTC'S LAWYERS

The town council’s lawyers, in their submissions, paid particular attention to Ms Lim, alleging that she was “an evasive witness as she will not hesitate to concoct evidence and/or be evasive in order to avoid making admissions under oath”.

"Sylvia Lim’s cross-examination also revealed that previous statements she made in Parliament were, at best, inaccurate and, at worst, untruthful," submitted the lawyers. "Therefore, negative inferences should be drawn in respect of her motivations as regards the award of the FMSS and/or FMSI contracts."

The lawyers charged that Ms Lim "fabricated stories", "concocted evidence" and was "extremely evasive", “constantly attempting to side-step questions when confronted with the truth and the apparent unsustainability of her original answer".

"AHTC submits that the inference to be drawn from this recurrent pattern of evasiveness is that Sylvia Lim is attempting to cover up her failings and the failings of the elected town councillors," wrote the lawyers.

Parties will have up to the middle of next month to file replies to each other's submissions, before making oral submissions in March.

Singapore actor Aloysius Pang sustained injuries to his chest and abdominal areas while carrying out repair works inside a Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer at Waiouru Training Area in New Zealand.
The Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) revealed this on Monday (Jan 21), adding that the 28-year-old underwent abdominal surgery on Saturday evening. The surgery was completed at 11.40pm (Singapore time). 

"A follow-up relook surgery which was planned for was successfully completed at 11am (Singapore time) today (Monday). A medical team from Singapore is working with the New Zealand team to provide the best possible care for CFC (NS) Pang," said MINDEF in a media release. 

Pang was on reservist when the incident happened on Saturday at about 2.05pm Singapore time. 
The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Operationally Ready National Serviceman, who holds the rank of Corporal First Class (National Service), was participating in Exercise Thunder Warrior.

MINDEF had said on Sunday that Pang was in a high dependency unit after undergoing surgery at Waikato hospital, Hamilton.
Arrangements have been made for Pang's next-of-kin to be flown to New Zealand.  
The actor's mother has spoken to him in hospital, said MINDEF, adding that his father and brother will arrive this evening (Singapore time). They were accompanied by family liaison officers from the SAF.
An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the incident.
St John New Zealand, a charity which provides medical response, confirmed that it had responded to the incident with an ambulance and a helicopter, and transported Pang to Waikato Hospital in "critical condition".

NO SET TIME TO BRING PANG BACK, SAYS DOCTOR
Giving an update on Pang's condition, Dr Teo Li Tserng, chief of trauma at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, said that the actor is doing well. He is currently in stable condition and breathing on his own.
Dr Teo said he had been asked by the SAF to help monitor Pang's case.
"Currently Aloysius is in a stable condition, his vitals are stable, and he's awake, alert and he's breathing on his own, not requiring any mechanical ventilation," said Dr Teo.
He said that authorities did not have a set time to bring Pang back to Singapore yet.
"What is most important is that he must be stable enough for us to make the trip back, and his condition must be well enough for us to try to bring him back," said Dr Teo."So we have not set a time, but rest assured, once he's stable and once he's well enough we will do what we can to take him back as soon as we can."

Pang works with Mediacorp on a project basis. He has been cast as the male lead in Channel 8 drama My One in a Million, due to start filming in February.
He will also appear in Toggle Originals From Beijing to Moscow, a 13-episode series slated for release on Toggle in June.
Exercise Thunder Warrior is an artillery live-firing exercise held at the Waiouru Training Area in New Zealand. 
The annual exercise has been conducted since 1997.
This year's exercise, which runs from Jan 5 to Feb 2, involves more than 500 personnel from the 268th and 24th Battalions, Singapore Artillery.
