    • Some called the boys rude. Others blamed the older folks. Netizen are divided by a viral video showing three schoolboys sitting on the floor in front of a 7-Eleven outlet at an MRT station speaking with several adults including a station staff member. An elderly woman can be heard telling the boys: "You cannot dirty the place like that." She said something about cooperating, to which one of the boys replied: "We are trying to cooperate..." His voice rose to a scream as he said: "You understand!"   The station staff member tried to de-escalate the situation, but was interrupted by an elderly man who stepped forward and told the boy: "You're in the wrong, you know?"     The elderly man was joined by an elderly woman in a red T-shirt. Another elderly woman, wearing a 7-Eleven shirt, then came out of the convenience store and asked the boys to stand up. By the end of the video, the boys had been surrounded by the four elderly people and the station staff member. The 63-second video was shared online on Feb 22 by Tiagong with the caption: "This ah boy so young so rude already ah." Someone commented: "That boy screaming at an elderly person like that. I cannot take it." But other netizens faulted how the grown-ups approached the boys. One pointed out: "You have to see he screamed out his fear to how the ah ma talked and a few of them attacking them." Another netizen said: "From this short video, I can only see that it was the old woman who started to trigger the anger. Those boys were just sitting there. I know old aunties. Some of them are so spiteful with their words, can make blood boil." Someone else added: "Even the old man the same. Should shut their bloody mouth and not come lecture people on their own mindset."   Some felt sorry for the young ones. "Pity the boys," said a netizen, "to experience this kind of unpleasant situation. The elderly have caused trauma to the boys. They will remember for life." Another lamented: "How I wish I was there to tell all the elderly to back off. This is not the way to talk to children. I will buy these cute boys one round of ice-cream."
    • SINGAPORE - The new Central Manpower Base (CMPB), a one-stop service hub for pre-enlistees and national servicemen, will be opened in phases from 2025, bringing under one roof national service-related administration services from medical screening to personal kit replacement. Meanwhile, a OneNS mobile app that consolidates NS-related services and transactions is slated to be rolled out to all NS units in 2024, alongside a new website to replace the existing NS Portal. These measures will enhance the national service experience and administrative efficiency, Senior Minister of State for Defence Heng Chee How said on Feb 29 during the debate on Mindef’s budget.   Announced in 2019, the new CMPB will be located opposite Cashew MRT station, near the current Ministry of Defence headquarters in Bukit Gombak. Compared with the current CMPB in Depot Road, the new integrated hub in Upper Bukit Timah Road will result in shorter medical screening times for pre-enlistees, who can also take their pre-enlistment individual physical proficiency test at the same location, said Mr Heng. The new CMPB will also house the Singapore Armed Forces’ second regional health hub (RHH) to provide more responsive care to soldiers, he added. This means NSmen will soon be able to undergo their health screening programme, as well as access dental and specialist care, at one location.     The Ministry of Defence previously said it would build six RHHs around the island, which consolidate the SAF’s essential healthcare services to serve each region. The first RHH, opened in Kranji in 2023, supports SAF camps in the north-west such as Kranji camps I, II and III, Mandai Hill Camp, SAF Detention Barracks and Stagmont Camp.     SPH Media Limited, its related corporations and affiliates as well as their agents and authorised service providers. marketing and promotions. Mr Heng said the SAF will establish up to four more RHHs in the next decade, with the third one to be located at Dieppe Barracks in Khatib to serve the north. “It will house the SAF’s first Sports and Exercise Medicine Centre, to better manage musculoskeletal injuries and is slated to commence operations in 2027,” he said. Besides medical and fitness facilities, the new CMPB will have a Lifestylemart where NSmen can buy NS-related items, he added. These include running shoes and exercise attire. They can also buy their equipment online and collect them physically.   The new one-stop hub will also house a 700-seat foodcourt, a childcare centre, football field and a fitness zone, which will be open to the public. “We envisage these amenities to be open even on weekends, bringing convenience to NSmen and the community nearby,” said Mr Heng. On the OneNS mobile app, he said it will streamline administrative processes for in-camp training. Instead of NSmen having to queue to scan their physical identity cards, the app will enable them to register their attendance using geolocation and QR code scanning, he said. A related OneNS web portal with improved design will replace the current NS Portal, “allowing national servicemen to access NS services more easily and with few disruptions”, he added.

Announced in 2017 by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the project was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nestled in greenery, this zone features a running trail exercise stations and a football field. It will be open to the public daily from 7.30am to 11pm.

The project is on track for completion in 2027, with construction to commence in March 2024, said Mr Heng. “When completed in 2027, it will play host to major national events like the National Day Parade and bigger scale community, sporting and recreational activities,” he said.
    • A Taylor Swift concert lasts more than three hours. A movie at the cinema has an average run time of almost two hours. The graduation ceremony at ITE College East on Feb 28 lasted only an hour and 15 minutes. Yet guests, comprising mostly parents of the graduating students, chose not to sit through the milestone event.   Suzy M, who was at the campus auditorium for her daughter, was appalled when most of the guests started leaving way before the graduation ceremony ended. "The ceremony started at 4pm. By 5pm, the auditorium was almost empty. The moment their children received their certificates on stage, the parents got up and left," said the 46-year-old mother of two. "I feel sorry for the students who got a silent room when it was their turn to get on the stage. Why couldn't all the guests stay put for just an hour and cheer on all the students on their momentous day?"   Suzy's daughter received her certificate in the first-half of the ceremony, which queued the students according to their course and class. "Surely we do not need a formal request to behave graciously. I hope the students who received their certificates in the second-half of the ceremony did not feel dispirited."
