Singapore News

The dynamic city Singapore attracts people from all over the world. Singapore is a place that is full of various kinds of small and large events throughout the year. Singapore, the land with diverse cultures, traditions and passions, is rapidly booming as a business centre of Asia. In the South-East Asian region, Singapore is the major headquarter of most of the world-famous news agencies. People from every corner of the world are interested in knowing the latest news of this Island city.

Downtown Line costs soar by more than 70%
Job growth in Singapore will slow to 2 per cent due to a structural policy shift to boost competitiveness and productivity and reduce overcrowding, said labour chief Lim Swee Say today. "It is very obvious that a workforce growth of 4 per cent a year is no longer sustainable both from the economic angle and from a social angle," he said. "If we were to continue at this rate, come 2020 we could expect to see a workforce of more than 4 million." "We have no choice but to slow down on our workforce growth," he added. Mr Lim, who is also the Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, was addressing 110 service industry professionals at a learning journey organised by Jumbo Group of Restaurants, together with Spring Singapore, to showcase its customer-centric initiatives.

Dead body found in MRT tunnel causes service disruption
A DEAD man was found lying in the MRT tunnel on Sunday night, causing train services on the East-West line to be disrupted for more than two hours. The man, a Chinese Singaporean in his 20s, was lying beside the train tracks in the tunnel between Redhill and Tiong Bahru stations. It is unclear how he got there, said the police who received a call at 7.45pm. Redhill station is above-ground while Tiong Bahru station is underground. Trains stopped running in both directions on the East-West line from Queenstown to Outram Park at 8.23pm to allow the police to investigate the incident. Eleven minutes later, West-bound trains were running again, but less frequently. The East-bound trains had several starts and stops, with services said to have resumed, only to be suspended again.

Singaporean helps to find new unusual planet
A California-based Singaporean is one of two amateur astronomers credited with finding an extraordinary new planet that has four suns. Former President's Scholar Jek Kian Jin, 53, along with an American, helped professionals from United States space agency Nasa and Yale University discover PH1, the first-known planet to be orbitally linked to four suns. The other amateur is Mr Robert Gagliano, an oncologist based in Arizona. Soon after PH1's discovery made the headlines at an annual American Astronomical Society meeting in Nevada a week ago, it was nicknamed Tatooine after the two-sunned planet of Star Wars fame. The research that led to the ground-breaking find began in December 2010 when Mr Jek, an IT consultant who lives in San Francisco, joined the Planet Hunters group.
