“Play this in an empty room, let the sounds soothe and calm you before making your head explode.” - Junk Magazine

Rules laid down on civil society activities during IMF meetings
By Dominique Loh, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 28 July 2006 1910 hrs

Civil society activities will be allowed in Suntec City, the venue of the IMF-World Bank meetings in September.

The Singapore Police say the lobby area on Level One of the convention centre has been designated for civil society organisations to express their views.

Those intending to get their voices heard will first have to be registered and accredited with the IMF and World Bank.

They also have to abide by very strict rules about their conduct.

Police will not hesitate to act against any misconduct.

What sort of civil society activites will be organised? Racial harmony aka orange ribbon? Courtesy campaigns? Speak good English? Or more sensitive civil matters such as human rights issue, sexuality issues? What's your take on the IMF event?

New service guidelines for bus services; fines if standards not met
By Asha Popatlal, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 26 July 2006 1541 hrs

SINGAPORE: The Public Transport Council has revised the service guidelines for public buses to help ensure they meet specific standards, and with recent changes to the law, it will, for the first time, have the teeth to enforce compliance.

Service standards for buses have actually been in place since 1994.

The problem was they were route specific and there were no penalties if they were not complied with.

Bus commuters would identify with the main problems highlighted in a survey done by the Public Transport Council

Finally, actions followed PR words. I'm waiting to see how these guidelines will be enforced. No point setting guidelines, laws, and what-have-you regulations if they are not being enforced.
