    i'm really shock and sad at the same time to know this.!
    I don't follow his acts, but I understand he is quite young and he died of heart attack.

    Unfortunately there are a few cases of late of seemingly healthy and young people dying suddenly, mainly from heart attack.

    On the other hand, I got to know Oldhand better and he showed me his array of "mouth-watering" rackets, the latest in the Li Ning range as well. He even offered me to test one of his better rackets and I felt very confident holding it in my hand and sparring with him.

    Naturally, with such sturdy rackets, he won his first match with his partner, Jimmy, quite easily!

    And Oldhand is also an oldhand at taping his handle grips!

    Default Productivity a vital issue

    The Straits Times
    Nov 26, 2009

    By Sue-Ann Chia

    EVEN as a government-led panel prepares a blueprint for new ways to grow the economy, a think-tank has outlined what Singapore needs to do to remain competitive and relevant in the global marketplace.

    Chief among the recommendations of the Asia Competitiveness Institute (ACI) is that businesses must address declining labour productivity levels by going beyond just getting workers to go for training to up their skills level.

    Companies have to change the way they do business, redesign work processes and provide products and services with higher customer value, the ACI said in its Singapore Competitiveness Report 2009 released yesterday.

    The report provides policymakers with 'options to consider while preparing Singapore for the next level of competitiveness', said a statement from the ACI, which is part of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

    Its recommendations are directed at the Economic Strategies Committee led by Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam and tasked with finding novel ways to transform the economy. The ACI's report said Singapore should not overreact to the current economic crisis as its fundamentals are solid and there is no reason to make dramatic changes.

    Said ACI director Neo Boon Siong: 'We are not falling off the cliff, so there's no need for major changes for the immediate or short term.'

    Default CJ Chan gets jurists award

    The Straits Times
    Nov 25, 2009

    By K C Vijayan

    CHIEF Justice Chan Sek Keong has become the first Asian jurist to be given the International Jurists Award by the International Council of Jurists (ICJ).

    India's President Pratibha Patil presented the 2009 award to CJ Chan on Saturday at the start of a two-day ICJ meeting in New Delhi.

    The event was part of the ICJ's conference on 'Terrorism and the Rule of Law' attended by some 3,000 delegates from several countries.

    ICJ president Adish Aggarwala said the award was given to CJ Chan in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the administration of justice.

    'His achievement has enhanced the dignity of the Asian judiciary,' said Dr Adish.

    Previous recipients of the award, given out since 2007, included the President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom , Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers and Canada's Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin.

    Default S'pore, Jiangsu step up ties

    The Straits Times
    Nov 25, 2009

    By Reico Wong

    SINGAPORE and Jiangsu are set to step up cooperation in the environmental services sector and the promotion of investment opportunities in northern coastal cities such as Lianyungang, Yancheng and Nantong.

    This was agreed on during the third Singapore-Jiangsu Cooperation Council meeting held in Wuxi on Wednesday. This comes after the Jiangsu Coastal Development Plan was recently endorsed as a national strategy by China's central government.

    Co-chaired by Singapore's Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan, and Jiangsu Party Secretary Liang Baohua, the council reviewed its work report for this year and discussed next year's workplan.

    The council said it will continue to focus on six key areas next year - in trade and economic, environmental services, vocational and technical education as well as education exchanges, tourism, science and technology, and the training of Jiangsu officials.

    Moving forward, Mr Khaw said both sides will step up mutual collaboration in sustainable green development, especially in water treatment and other environmental services, identify integrated multi-sector projects to scale up benefits of collaboration, and seek partnership opportunities in the Jiangsu Coastal Development Plan.'

    Mr Khaw noted that Jiangsu places high priority on the quality of water and its conservation of Lake Tai and said Singapore companies can contribute in these areas. 'We are exploring undertaking demonstration projects in selected Jiangsu cities using a Public-Private-Partnership approach,' he added. 'The Jiangxinzhou project is very promising and I hope more Singapore companies can participate in this iconic development.'

    Default German R&D lab in NTU

    The Straits Times
    Nov 25, 2009

    By Chua Hian Hou , Technology Correspondent

    GERMANY'S Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the R&D giant known for its work on the MP3 digital music format, will set up a new $10 million institute to conduct research in digital media at the Nanyang Technological University.

    The Fraunhofer Singapore institute will employ 20 researchers when it opens mid-2010, NTU and Fraunhofer announced on Wednesday.

    More will be hired later to do cutting-edge research in computer graphics and virtual reality as part of its foray into Asia, said Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research's director, Professor Dieter Fellner.

    The number will be upped to 50 by 2013, and possibly even more over time, said Prof Fellner.

    Some possible research areas include new ways to capture every single possible detail of 'cultural heritage' objects, like a historical building or other artifact digitally, so that future generations can experience them even when the physical item is gone.

    Fraunhofer, which specialises in developing commercial applications out of cutting-edge academic research, is Europe's biggest research body with an annual research budget of 1.5 billion euros. It employs over 10,000 full-time researchers in its 60 research institutes.

    Default Boom time for creative arts grads

    The Straits Times
    Sep 04, 2008

    90 per cent of graduates polled found jobs within three months of graduating

    By Amelia Tan

    A BURGEONING arts scene has opened up more job opportunities for digital animators, actors, dancers and film-makers.

    The many animation and design studios opening here, a Universal Studios theme park in one of the integrated resorts, and an art and exhibition gallery in the upcoming mega shopping mall Ion Orchard are creating these job opportunities, noted Education Minister Ng Eng Hen yesterday.

    'But the sum effect is much more - a change in the image of Singapore...We will need more professionals who can contribute to the varied tastes and lifestyles as Singapore becomes an even more cosmopolitan city,' he said in his speech at the LaSalle College of the Arts convocation ceremony held yesterday at the Suntec convention centre.

    Employment statistics cited by LaSalle president and chief executive officer Lee Suan Hiang confirmed that things are looking up for creative arts graduates: A survey done last year showed that almost 90 per cent of graduates polled found jobs within three months of graduating.

    The number of arts-related companies and societies registered here has almost doubled in the last decade to 794.

    Nearly 27,000 arts activities and 7,450 performances were held last year and almost 1.5 million people attended a ticketed performance.

    The dean of the faculty of media arts, Mr Wolfgang Muench, said that to prepare students for careers in a changing arts industry, faculty members regularly consulted industry professionals when courses were being designed.

    Film major Boo Junfeng, 25, who graduated yesterday with first-class honours in his Bachelor of Arts course, also picked up the inaugural McNally Award for Excellence in Arts for being the overall top student. It is named after LaSalle's founder, Brother Joseph McNally.

    Mr Boo, who won multiple awards for his film Keluar Baris in the 21st Singapore International Film Festival held in April, said he gained a lot from the college's requirement that students of different disciplines such as film, theatre, music and dance work together in projects.

    'This allowed me to experiment with new techniques and enhance the way I tell stories in my films,' he said.

    Default Facelift for Hong Lim centre

    The Straits Times
    Nov 25, 2009

    By Lim Wei Chean

    HONG Lim Food Centre at Block 531A Upper Cross Street will be closed for upgrading works from next March.

    A temporary hawker centre will be set up at Hong Lim Park's Speakers' Corner in the meantime until $6 million renovation works are completed in the first half of 2011, said the National Environment Agency (NEA) in a statement on Wednesday.

    'The upgrading seeks to inject a new lease of life into the centre that was built in 1978, and provide an infrastructure where the stallholders can maintain better hygiene conditions,' said NEA. 'In addition, patrons can look forward to a new environment that is more conducive for their marketing and dining needs. Key aspects of the upgrading include improved ventilation, upgraded toilet facilities and increased refreshment area.'

    The upgrading will see the market layout reconfigured to provide bigger passageways as well as ramps to make it accessible for the handicap and the elderly. The sanitary and plumbing pipes will also be replaced, floor and wall tiles changed and fire safety features improved.

    During the renovation, some of the hawkers and wet market stalls will operate from a temporary centre set up at a rarely used section of Speakers' Corner at Hong Lim Park, just a stone's throw from the current food centre.

    Some 77 hawker centres have been upgraded under the NEA Hawker Centres Upgrading Programme to date. Several other centres currently being upgraded include Block 270 Queen Street and Block 628 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4.

    The upgrading will see the market layout reconfigured to provide bigger passageways as well as ramps to make it accessible for the handicap and the elderly. -- PHOTO: LIANHE ZAOBAO
