Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 5, 2008

A teen who is now under probation for torching his uncle’s car turned hostile at the trial of his mother on Wednesday.

Student Louis Hong Hsieh Shuen, 17, was testifying as a prosecution witness on the third-day trial of Teo Sew Eng on two charges of abetting him him to burn a car and a van at a multi-storey carpark on Oct 23, 2006.

Teo, 53, denied providing a plastic bag containing a bottle of petrol, a packet of charcoal and a face cloth to her son that evening.

Hong pleaded guilty last year to torching Mr Ernest Tan’s car and was placed on 24 months’ probation. The damage caused was $40,500.

His accomplice, Ho Ki Yeow, 18, had also been placed on probation earlier. (story)

3 more charged in illegal sexual enhancement drug trade

Posted by jtsmyth8 on April 4, 2008

This just goes to show how desperate men are. Ladies! Go easy on us. Yes, we have small pee pees but we go down (you know what I mean). See?! So many men are dying to satisfy you hungry ladies, just give us a chance. We are so desperate we are risking our lives by buying cheap drugs from a street vendor. Don’t giggle, just say, “ooh, it’s soo big!”

“3 more men were charged in court on Thursday with peddling illegal sexual enhancement drugs after the authorities cracked down on the trade in February.

All three – Lee Teck Boo, Ong Nguk and Teo See Bong – were accused of selling Power 1 Walnut pills, which have caused at least 20 men to be hospitalised.

Although labelled to contain only natural herbal ingredients, the pills were found to be adulterated with two western medicinal ingredients – Glibenclamide, a potent anti-diabetic medication that can cause severe and life-threatening symptoms of very low blood sugar, and Sildenafil, an active ingredient in Viagra. Sildenafil is a potent drug that should only be taken under a doctor’s supervision.” (story)

Pedophile sentenced to 22 yrs

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 16, 2008

I hope this sick bastard gets his ding dong chopped off. He’s going to find out how criminals treat pedophiles. They are considered the lowest of the low. The scum of the earth. Poor kids. Probably never gonna trust anyone ever again.

“A 54 yr old pedophile methodically preyed on two eight-year-old boys, gaining their trust with gifts of food and toys, and even an excursion to the zoo. Machine operator Soh Beng Huat, alias Teo Beng Huat, then lured them to secluded spots and sexually assaulted them.

On a number of occasions, he even took along with him an MP4 digital player or a portable camcorder with a tripod to record the lewd acts.” (story)

Infant dies after hitting head on toilet

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 10, 2008

An Indonesian maid did not tell her employers that their baby boy had knocked his head against the toilet bowl while she was bathing him until almost six hours later, a coroner’s court heard.Two-month-old Jordan Teo Ka Jun died of bleeding in the membrane of the skull as a result on Sept 10 last year.

On Thursday, the maid, Ms Lasini, 25, named a potential defendant at an inquiry into baby Jordan’s death, elected to remain silent.

The investigating officer, Staff Sergeant Junior Leow, from Ang Ko Kio Police Division, said the maid had fed the baby that morning at her employers’ flat in Hougang Street 52 before bathing him in the master bedroom toilet. (story)

Nano technology big in Singapore

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 3, 2007

Some 40 local and foreign nano technology companies have set up shop here, dealing in anything from chemical engineering to cosmetics, a significant increase from just 10 companies three years ago.

‘The beauty about nanotech is that it is an enabling technology – it can be applied in any industry,’ said Spring group director of quality and standards Teo Nam Kuan.

Consumer demand for the industry is expected to grow to $1.05 trillion globally by 2010, said Minister of State for Trade and Industry S. Iswaran at the opening of the one-day Nanosymposium on Monday at the Biopolis.

But with such a wide array of applications, nano technology – the art of producing things on a molecular scale – unfortunately still lacks a unified set of standards and protocols, he noted.

The majority of nano technologies have yet to be commercialised, as uniform standards have yet to be established.

Interestingly, there are over 16,000 standards governing the production and use of anything from credit cards to DVDs and social enterprises, but none for nano technology. (story)
