Blue Men Group

IF YOU’RE thinking of heading to New Zealand for the school holidays, you might want to check out the Blue Men Group, which will be performing in Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch for the month of June. The group was recently in Singapore to launch their World Tour, as part of celebrating their 25 years in the entertainment business. The group is also recruiting – so good luck if you’re thinking of joining them. Auditions, however, are held only in Los Angeles, New York, and London.

Stop it Trump
Illustration by Sean Chong

by Sean Chong

USING people’s artistic works without their permission is seriously offensive. After insulting women and Hispanics and other minorities, Mr Donald Trump is now angering artists by using their songs without their permission in his political campaigns. Surely the billionaire can afford to pay? Some of the music he’s used include music from R.E.M., Adele, and – just few days ago – The Rolling Stones. The singers have asked that Mr Trump stop using their music at his rallies.

No toilet for you, shoppers!

WISMA Atria shoppers were divided last week when the Orchard Road shopping mall put up notices barring construction workers from using the toilets inside the mall, which it said was meant only for customers. Some were indignant, others said it was nothing unusual. What if it had been the other way round?

Heat Wave!!! (SIM)

SINGAPORE’S hot weather isn’t about to let up – in fact, the National Environmental Agency (NEA) has said it may last until the end of the month and even into May due to the Inter-monsoon period. On Tuesday (April 19), the Republic marked the hottest day in the record with an average temperature of 30.6 degrees. But, was it hot enough to cook an egg?

GOOD news, fellow commuters! The National Library Board (NLB) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) are working to launch a mobile library, which will transform an MRT train to function as a library. On the train, QR codes will be available for commuters to scan and download e-books or essays using their mobile devices. Is this a great idea, or will it be chaos? The only thing we know is that there will be no more excuses for not reading.

Illegal Fishing (SIM)

By Sean Chong

ILLEGAL fishing is not just illegal. It harms animals other than fish too. Last Saturday (April 2), an otter pup with a fishing hook pierced near its right eye was found at a canal near Kallang Bahru Road. Other animals, including turtles, monitor lizards, and birds have been injured by fishing equipment too.

Dog Abandonment

EIGHTEEN dogs were abandoned mysteriously all around Singapore last week – until it was discovered that they all belonged to the same owner, a man who runs a pet grooming school. He was not named in media reports. Apparently, he was told by the authorities that he couldn’t keep them in his shop because they were too loud. Another 12 were given to an animal welfare group.

Jungle Training In Woodlands

FOREST by day, brothel by night. The “jungle brothel” is a small clearing in the woods between Woodlands Avenue 4 and 9. Shocked? Don’t be. It was actually first reported back in May 2004.

Singles' Village (SIM)

by Sean Chong

YOUNG people want to focus on their priorities. That’s why they’re not getting hitched. So, why not put them in a “singles’ village”? That’s the suggestion by a contributor to The Straits Times’ Forum pages this week. Could this idea be so crazy, it might actually work?
