Singaporeans care about values, dialogues show
When Singaporeans sit down to talk about their vision of the country's future, many focus on values such as kindness, graciousness and compassion. This theme has emerged in dialogues since the national conversation kicked off officially a week ago, observed Senior Minister of State for Education Lawrence Wong, a member of the panel overseeing the consultative process. "There is something that people do feel in wanting a kinder society, a more gracious society. That is one emerging thread that I've seen in the conversations that I've attended so far," he told reporters after a session with 60 young people on Saturday. Organised by the National Youth Council, it saw youth aged 16 to 25 suggesting offbeat ideas to make Singapore a happier home, many of which centred on values. Junior college student Ang Jie, 17, suggested having dedicated days to recognise the contributions of blue-collar workers such as cleaners and construction workers, to make Singaporeans more compassionate. "This will help us better understand and appreciate what they do," she said.

Animal rights groups in Philippines resist export of wild dolphins to RWS
Environmental and animal rights groups in the Philippines are refusing to concede defeat in their fight to prevent 25 Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins from being re-exported to the Marine Life Park at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS). They plan to file an appeal today for the courts to re-consider their decision not to extend the 72-hour "temporary environmental protection order" granted last Friday, according to local animal rights group Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres). The protection order expired on Wednesday, paving the way for the dolphins to leave the Philippines. Acres executive director Louis Ng was speaking to reporters this morning at the launch of Acres new campaign to draw public attention to the plight of the dolphins. Its website features a video that highlights the depletion of the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin in the Guadalcanal region of the Solomon Islands. Members of the public can also send personal appeals directly to RWS from the site.

Luxury chain St Regis Singapore loses trademark battle
Six-star hotel St Regis Singapore was not amused when a four-star rival called Park Regis Singapore opened in 2010. Afraid that the public would think both names were linked, it successfully applied to the Registrar of Trade Marks last year to stop Park Regis from registering that name as a trademark. It also argued then but failed to convince the registrar that Park Regis was "passing off" as a St Regis brand, which would have potentially stopped the Park Regis name from being used. Park Regis filed an appeal and the High Court has now allowed it to register its name as a trademark. It overruled the Registrar of Trade Marks and said while both names bore some similarity, there was no possibility of confusion. Justice Judith Prakash, in her 38-page judgment grounds released last week, noted the trademarks accompanying both names were visually dissimilar and there was enough doubt in people's minds that both were associated.

Sunday night MRT disruptions due to train fault: SMRT
Train faults were behind the disruption of Sunday night's MRT services around the Pasir Ris, Tampines and Tanah Merah stations, said an SMRT spokesperson on Monday. A west-bound train had experienced a fault between Pasir Ris and Tampines stations at around 9.50pm, and the train behind it was used to assist it to Tampines station so passengers could alight. Both trains experienced a fault around 10.40pm while they were on the east-bound line heading towards Pasir Ris to be temporarily stationed. A bus bridging service between Tampines and Pasir Ris was brought in to assist affected passengers, said the spokesperson. Some east-bound trains were also turned around at Tampines and Tanah Merah stations to maintain service on the west-bound line for passengers heading towards Joo Koon.

MRT services disrupted on East-West line
MRT services on the East-West line in both directions between Pasir Ris and Tampines were disrupted late last night, according to the official SMRT Twitter account. SMRT first warned around 10pm of an additional five minutes of travelling time from Joo Koon towards Pasir Ris due to "a train fault". Shortly after, it tweeted that travelling from Tampines to Pasir Ris - one stop away - would take an additional 20 minutes more. It advised commuters to seek alternative transport. There appeared to have been multiple disruptions. Only shortly after it said that operations were back to normal around 11pm, SMRT announced there were no train services again.
