Japan Tobacco International (Singapore) was one of the sponsors for the EDM festival - Ultra Singapore 2016, which attracted 45,000 people over two days. Regulations prevented those going to the event at Bayfront Avenue from bringing in open packs of cigarettes. According to the prosecution, it meant smokers had no choice but to buy JTI products. The firm had set up two booths, which had menus showing their products. Investigations revealed that up to 1,600 packets of cigarettes were distributed over the event.

A former president of the Chinese Cultural Association (CCA) has been sentenced to 15 months' jail for trying to cheat a government-run fund into disbursing grants. The fund provides matching grants for private cash donations received by registered cultural charities. In 2014, Lui Wai Leong, 45, had asked one of his staff to submit two applications, falsely declaring that the association had received nearly $1.4 million in donations. The sum had been falsely inflated by about $330,000, which was traced back to the CCA itself. No grants were ultimately disbursed.

The new measure applies to Singapore residents and long-term pass holders who have been to mainland China but outside Hubei in the last 14 days. Those from Hubei are quarantined. The stay-home notice is stricter than leave of absence. Those who are issued the notice cannot leave their homes at all for 14 days, even to buy food and other essentials. Singaporeans who flout the rule could be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for six months, for a first offence. Foreigners could have their long-term passes revoked.

In Singapore, a woman who was first admitted to hospital for dengue fever before she was found to have COVID-19, has been confirmed to be infected with both. The Health Ministry confirmed that hers was a case of co-infection, but stressed that it is an extremely unique occurrence and the only known case in Singapore so far. It also clarified that dengue does not develop into COVID-19. For those with a fever or headache, the test for COVID-19 is often carried out alongside other tests, because these symptoms are also common to regular pneumonia, dengue or flu.

To contain the deepening economic damage from the coronavirus outbreak, China is reportedly looking to take over HNA Group and sell off its airline assets. Media reports said the provincial government of Hainan -- where HNA is headquartered -- is in talks to take control of the conglomerate.

Sources said Beijing will sell the bulk of HNA's airline assets to the country's three biggest carriers: Air China, China Southern and China Eastern.

The criminalisation of abortions under certain circumstances in Thailand has been ruled unconstitutional. The constitutional court ruled in a split decision on Feb 19 that Article 301 of Thailand's criminal code contradicts with the constitutionally guaranteed right of non-discrimination and the right of liberty and life. Currently, Article 301 states any woman doing an abortion or has someone else carrying out one for her could be punished with up to three years in prison, a fine of roughly 6,000 baht (US$200), or both. The court has ordered a revision of the criminal code within a year.

An unintended side effect of the COVID-19 outbreak in China is a smaller carbon footprint. The country has cut its carbon dioxide emissions by about 100 million metric tons over the past two weeks. That's nearly the same amount Chile emits in a year. A report by non-profit group Carbon Brief said travel and transport restrictions, as well as less economic activity, have translated into a temporary dip in emissions. However, researchers said China's emissions will increase as the government looks to stimulate the economy through infrastructure projects in the aftermath of the coronavirus outbreak.

In 2019, the income inequality divide in Singapore narrowed to the smallest in nearly two decades. Incomes for all households rose from the preceding year, in spite of the slow economy in 2019. Data from the Department of Statistics Singapore showed income in median households rose S$132 per month to reach a monthly income of S$9,425 for 2019. Still, analysts said while it is good for incomes to rise, workers need to ensure that they deliver what employers paid for.

China has cut interest rates for business loans to support the economy that has been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak. The one-year rate has been lowered to just over 4%. It's the first drop since November 2019. The five-year rate is now at 4.75%. The cuts follow the People's Bank of China's decision to reduce rates for short-term funds and one-year loans to commercial lenders.

As an American we still need to be factual~ and not spread false assumptions like a certain orange tan because he couldn't verbally attack the Japanese anymore with his outdated rhetoric thats been repeated by himself for 30years. Hey fella's, our president just recycled and reused a racist bias to harass others only based on the certain way they look.

I 💗 little people. I'm so sorry you're going through this. My son is special needs and has gone through the bullying as well. For years he was the smallest child in the entire school because of the meds he has been on since age 4. He got kicked, hit, punched, pushed- every day. I talked to the principal and guidance counselor repeatedly and no one could do much about it. It got worse and worse. My son too became suicidal at a very young age. It got so bad that he took a knife to school to defend himself. The school then treated him as a threat and put him into an alternative school. I pulled him out of school and did home school through the K12 program. There is actually a video of my son telling his teachers he misses them, but he doesn't miss the bullying, on my channel from years ago. I think the best thing I did was to put him into mixed martial arts classes. He learned to defend himself but to also be respectful. He made friends in the class who were also getting bullied and his self esteem soared. He never again felt the need to take a weapon to school to defend himself and the new confidence deterred bullies. He is 17 now and has been back in regular school for years. He is still special needs and always will be but he doesn't get bullied for it as much. He makes friends easier now as well.

Save your money on better things - for rainy days, for your retirement, for your house, for your future. It's honestly unnecessary to spend a tonne of money to impress people whom you barely know of or not having a sort of meaningful relationship, it's this culture in the Chinese community to "save face", the grander the better. Even if it's true that it's the only time when many families regard it to be a special family occasion and would even help with making it look spectacular like it's in the movies, I'd rather spend it on having a smaller intimate wedding banquet and not feel awkward about any guests on my list at all. It's gonna be fine even if your wedding isn't like what some celebrities or wealthy people do. Marriage is more important than the wedding's presentation. Take a chill pill and invest the energy into your marriage instead.

This is to all those STILL bullying Quadan saying he is a professional actor and this is fake. Even if he was or wants to be an actor are you suggesting he can't actually be suffering in real life? Have you written to the actors and hopefuls who suffered at the hands of Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein or Amber Heard and said they are lying because they know how to act? Have you ever had the guts to approach a desperately upset victim and tell them to their face that they are lying? No, you never have. You'll bully to feed your desperately lacking self esteem, which in itself is a tragedy, but you'll never back it up with a non aggressive face to face conversation explaining your choice to bully. Now what do you think that actually says about you?
