    Whether 17-year-old Ben Davis should be granted national service deferment to pursue what is deemed by some to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a football career with English Premier League side Fulham has raised different perspectives among Singaporeans. 인터넷바카라 In explaining its decision to turn down the family's request, the Ministry of Defence laid out its principles clearly (Eng Hen explains why request from Ben Davis was rejected). I am disappointed to hear Ben is playing as an English national for the football club despite his Singaporean citizenship. The family was also non-committal about a possible return date, and made it dependent on whether his contract would be renewed. 온라인바카라 Deferring an individual on these grounds would be very unfair to those who have had to forego similar distinguished opportunities in order to dutifully serve NS. If NS is necessary to ensure Singapore's continued peace and prosperity, then the principles of national security, universality and equity that underpin NS must not be compromised. My family and I had the opportunity to watch the National Day Parade preview last weekend.   More than a parade and a show, it was a strong symbol of what the past and present generations of servicemen continue to defend - Singapore's freedom and sovereignty. 인터넷카지노 A strict adherence to the said principles is why we can commit to NS, and why NS has continued to be the backbone of our defence since the early years of our independence. It is one of the reasons why we have been able to celebrate Singapore's National Day year after year, for the last 53 years.

    While nature interest groups generally welcome inclusion and encourage the public to participate in their activities, I am surprised that Mr Neeraj Prabakharan advocated exclusion in his letter (Feeding wild animals does more harm than good). 온라인바카라 The late president S R Nathan made wild birds feel at home in the Istana, and ensured that hornbills had adequate food and shelter so that they would breed there. Heartened by Mr Nathan, private citizens with the means to do so and with support from people involved in the Istana project emulated his example, thereby encouraging hornbills and other desirable birds, once scarce in Singapore, to re-establish themselves. Yet, Mr Prabakharan supports prohibiting the feeding of wildlife. This will discourage nature lovers from actively attracting songbirds to their gardens. While he admits that bird-feeding stations are frequently set up to see birds through the winters in temperate countries, he is incorrect to claim that in Singapore there is an abundance of food all year round. 인터넷카지노 For local songbird species, breeding is dependent on the supply of food. During the dry season mid-year, breeding activity drops off. But if food is provided, breeding continues throughout the year.   His statement that the feeding of wildlife by untrained individuals would often do more harm than good is unsubstantiated and supercilious. Many desirable bird species are quite adaptable as far as diet is concerned. It is inaccurate for him to claim that what is used in bird feeders is nutritionally inadequate. Very reliable and well-researched products are readily available in Singapore. Pet birds grow, sing and breed on these diets. Wild birds will flourish just as well. 온라인카지노 His mention that the feeding of "wild" pigeons caused them to procreate and become pests is irrelevant to the subject of wildlife. The pest pigeons are not truly wild but are domestic stock that has gone feral. I will support steps the authorities take to humanely remove them. Mr Prabakharan's position that we should keep our distance from wildlife and that nature appreciation can be achieved by visiting parks and nature reserves is too extreme a stand.

    The issue is whether the pay packet given to a particular minister is justified by the effort he puts in to build the nation and look after its people. If the minister is the right person for the job, a high salary is reasonable. 온라인카지노 If you look at multinational companies, their chief executive is rewarded if he is able to achieve good yearly growth. The Singapore Government should give special bonuses or set up a pension fund as compensation to those who are willing to sacrifice the benefits they enjoyed in the corporate world. Any increment would be based on his performance. 온라인바카라 But, money should not be the main attraction to woo the best people to join the Government. They should also have the passion, interest and determination to do the job well.

    About 2.5 years ago I started an experiment, could I leave Google. 온라인카지노 I was nervous, finding information is often important to my work; and after more than 10 years I had come to trust the relationship between my search methodology and Google's responses. I had also read so much bad stuff about Bing, starting with its silly name through to only being useful in the USA. First I test switched to Bing on my work desktop. It felt quicker there to be able to repeat the search in Google if I didn't trust the result. Initially I did not like the web results or the news search but what did win me over was image search on Bing. So after image search next I started appreciating the video search interface and then switched my laptop to Bing. It was a gradual mental process and perhaps my methodology shifted but I came to observe that web results did return what I was looking for even if it was not exactly the same sites or order of sites.  Letting go of comparing the order of results was the turning point. It may seem obvious but the actual goal here is finding information, not that a results window looks the same. How often is that your real comparison? 바카라사이트주소 Next I switched my iOS devices over to Bing. but my transfer was not complete as I still defaulted to Google Maps on web. That has also stopped. So has relying on Google for local business information. I like Bing. Where does Google still play? There are rare occasions where I seek a second search opinion when I don't find what I am looking for. I still use Google Maps when I am measuring a distance between two places - once or twice a year. I do view content on YouTube and breaking that I think at this time is a near impossible task. If the content is there and nowhere else.... Of course if I am placing something on the web and want it found I make sure it is known to Google. Also ironically perhaps, at work on Windows I use Chrome, Firefox is too slow. I also do use Chrome on my Mac if I am uploading to YouTube as it has a resume feature not available on Safari. 카지노사이트 Do I Bing it? No I never say that, I search for things and I tell people to "search for it" Oh and... how sweet is Chrome + Bing

    When I heard about Amazon Video Direct earlier on today, I was pretty excited. It was written about as a YouTube competitor and, as much as I love YouTube, I was pretty keen to get in on AVD on the ground floor. 인터넷카지노  Amazon just seemed like such a good place to publish short fiction videos; it's already the prime place for independent e-books, I thought it would be the perfect place for my video fictions. Now, I'm under no illusions - my stories are my pleasure, but they are never going to be a big earner for me. I write and record for the love of the story. Right now, I'm happy with that. But the thought of entering a less crowded marketplace was also appealing. I just want people to enjoy my work and AVD is so new, it is going to make discovery of my fictions a whole lot easier. 인터넷바카라 *BUT IT IS NOT.* Youtube's success comes partly from the fact that it is so damn easy to upload. I teach 11 year old kids who do it better than me, because it just works well. But Amazon Video Direct is not only ugly, but cumbersome and (worst of all) insists you include _closed captions_ when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 카지노사이트주소 And this is why Amazon Video Direct is going to be a completely different kettle of fish to YouTube. YouTube is for everyone; AVD is for those who are serious about their work. Sure, it might end up meaning a smaller, but better quality, selection of videos - but it is never going to have the reach and cultural penetration of YouTube.

    Facebook looks certainly like company hellbent on changing how human beings interact with each other. There are close to 1.5 billion people who now use Facebook on one or more of the available platforms (Web and Apps), and if you include its subsidiaries/acquisitions such as WhatsApp, Instagram, and Oculus, then that pool of users grows significantly. 온라인카지노  Facebook introduced live broadcast on its news feed enabling users to share videos with their followers in real time. However, I can't stop to imagine that Facebook could do more with its live video streaming feature by adding more functions. Chances are that some of the functions could be in the works already behind the scenes, which means we could see them soon. But that hasn't happened yet. 온라인카지노 Facebook has the potential to top that list of the world's largest companiesby market capitalization by the year 2020, especially if it can fully utilize its addressable market. One of the things that Facebook could add to live video is conferencing and group discussions. It can integrate these features to be visible in the on pop out window broadcast. This would allow the company to broaden the services offered thereby giving it a chance to even challenge other platforms like Skype and Google Hangouts. 카지노사이트  With the modern work environment shifting from the physical offices to cloud computing, this feature might actually become a realistic revenue contributor to Facebook's business model. In summary, Facebook's live video broadcast feature could be made better by adding more functions as pointed out. It's a great product with great potential of making a difference in the company in dollar terms.

    Not many years ago, artificial intelligence seemed impossible. Today, it’s not only possible, it’s already being used. AI is already benefiting your life in a number of ways whether you realize it or not. Soon, it’s going to be making life even easier. Here are just three of the ways. 바카라사이트  Shorter security lines at the airport The worst thing about air travel—and that’s saying a lot—is getting through security. There is a nationwide shortage of TSA personnel and it’s the human element that really slows down security checkpoints. Soon, AI will be used to screen your baggage instead of humans. And it will do it much more quickly and accurately. 온라인바카라 Smarter customer service Few things are as annoying as calling a customer service number only to spend the next half hour on hold or transferred from department to department until you talk to the right person. Large companies can’t afford to have a live person answer every phone call and automated answering services are a poor substitute. But with the power of AI, customer service is going to be automated in such a way that you’ll be off the phone within just a few minutes of placing your call. Very cheap car insurance 인터넷카지노 Driverless cars are soon to be a reality and when computers are doing the driving, there’s going to be far fewer accidents. So few in fact, that the only reason you’ll need car insurance at all is bad weather and bitter exes which means insuring your car is about to get a whole lot cheaper.

    Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    Since comments are disabled on the article: I'm really interested in people's opinion. What do you think about this? 안전놀이터 Why did my boyfriend like Emily Ratajkowski's butt on Instagram? Personally: I think an Insta "like" has such different value to different people that it's basically impossible to interpret what that means (for your relationship) without discussing that with the other person first. Or at least looking at what their regular behaviour is (do they follow 3 people and like almost nothing or follow 1000 people and like everything that passes under their thumb?) 인터넷바카라Then there's the whole aspect of guys looking at other girls than their girlfriend. It shouldn't matter, but it does. How do you deal with that?

    This is a preview of a Wikipedia concept we’re working on. Besides improving overall layout and readability, we decided to see what could be done with original Wikipedia concept and what it should be today.   For more info check out this Dribbble shot with 2 full previews 바카라사이트주소       Import photo/video/social content from web By embedding Article clips, Tweets, Quotes, Flickr and Instagram Photos, Youtube videos and Podcasts each article would be much more media rich, up to date and wouldn’t have an outdated encyclopaedic look. Nowadays you can embed a live Feed related to the content without a need for a human update. Content sharing Wikipedia should have an easy sharing system with widgets, content cards and content feeds.

    What is the future of Youtube shows? 인터넷카지노 Youtube and by default all of its hit channels are less than ten years old, but let's talk about how time affects Youtube. We've already seen the top channels peak and descend. The crown for most subscribed channel went from Ray William Johnson to Smosh to Pewdiepie. The crown for most watched recently from Machinima to Rihanna. Some Youtubers have made the transition to other media, or are trying to, like Toby Turner and the Fine Bros.  But I'm wondering if the future YT channels will be like other media or not. What will happen whenever someone wants to end their channel or a member of a duo wants to leave and the other wants to stay? Will Youtube channels die like cancelled television shows? Viewers are not as accustomed to endings like that online as on TV. How will audiences respond? 온라인바카라 If one of the Fine Brothers or Smosh guys wants to move on to something else, will the show continue with a new person like a late night talk show or SNL? Or are YT channels and their viewership not built to outlast their creators?

    ...and you probably aren't thinking about it because it's hot as balls outside right now. 인터넷카지노 BUT if you do live in New York, you probably know that landlords are required to turn the heat on by a certain date in October every year — and that every year certain scummy landlords will try to save money by not doing it. Of course, this happens most in poor neighborhoods in South Brooklyn and the Bronx. Yay! The universe is horrible. 바카라사이트주소     Tenants in these neighborhoods often have to fight with their landlords to get heat in the winter, and one thing makes this fight really tough — the lack of data. Tenants may be tracking the temperature in their apartments, but it's just not that convincing when you hand a judge a handwritten diary, especially if your landlord is right there calling you a liar. My brother started a nonprofit project to fix this. It's called HeatSeekNYC. They're placing XBees outfitted with thermometers in individual apartments and using a Raspberry Pi as a hub for a mesh network to get whole buildings online. The sensor takes regular temperature readings and records that data on a website that can be used by tenants, lawyers, and housing advocates. 카지노사이트  The system provides easy to read, incontrovertible data from the entire building so that landlords will be forced to stay honest. And if the landlord ever tries to turn the heat off or keep the temperature even just below the legal limit, it's easy to prove. HeatSeek is competing for funding from the NYC BigApps competition, and they need votes! Please consider giving them your support. A win would pay for 600 sensors.

    Saw this on Kickstarter. It sounds like an interesting way of delivering tech news. I’ve seen many detailed discussions and lengthy article-like posts on forums like this one, 카지노사이트주소  so it’d definitely be interesting to see how effective this would be.

    I would like to know, is it possible to remove or report my own questions that I have? I have asked some questions on Yahoo Answers that have some personal details in them and I would like to have them removed. I asked the website there but they so far the answers that I got was not that helpful. 안전놀이터   So far when I ask there they just give me 1. Click on the pencil icon and delete your questions 2. Once you have a best answer you cannot delete it. 바카라사이트 I know that you can report questions so I have other accounts on YA and I have been reporting my questions and so far that works. But I want to know what more effective measures that I can use to delete my questions?

I asked the website there but they so far the answers that I got was not that helpful. 안전놀이터   So far when I ask there they just give me 1. Click on the pencil icon and delete your questions 2. Once you have a best answer you cannot delete it. 바카라사이트 I know that you can report questions so I have other accounts on YA and I have been reporting my questions and so far that works. But I want to know what more effective measures that I can use to delete my questions?

    One of the points brought up by the opponent of Title ii was that he feels like Netflix should be paying ISPs extra for using up so much bandwidth. He felt like it made more sense for customers to pay Netflix more, so that Netflix can then go and pay his company extra for "clogging" up the internet. 온라인바카라 My confusion in all this is, what exactly am I paying for with my internet service plan and what am I paying Netflix for? If my ISP is getting paid so that I can have a certain amount/tier of bandwidth and GBs a month (as long as I stay under a cap), then shouldn't the delivery of Netflix /HBO Go/Hulu Plus/Amazon Video be part of that service? I thought I was paying Netflix for the content, and not the delivery. 카지노사이트주소    If my ISP cannot handle the video delivery because the content takes up too much bandwidth and resources, I'd expect that they should tell me, "Hey radderthanrad, all these video services take up a lot of resources and you're using more than most customers, so you should probably upgrade to a better connection so that you can maintain high-quality delivery of the videos you want to watch." 바카라사이트주소     In fact, when I had Xbox Gold and lived with someone else who liked to online game a lot, I paid Comcast extra for a better quality connection to make sure I could enjoy a good experience. I don't understand why I would expect Xbox's online gaming services to subsidize Comcast or Verizon for using up internet connections. What do you all think?

    First off, forgive me if there is an article on this - I haven't been paying much attention to the news (mainly because there isn't much relevant shit to me in it most of the time) ANYWAY... 카지노사이트Anyone noticing some weird subtle things going on between Facebook and Google/Youtube?   There's a Facebook "view" counter on videos now (yeah, I know that doesn't seem important but that is one more Youtube feature that Facebook is enabling - won't be long before a thumbs down button shows up ;) ) 온라인카지노 Is it me, or do embedded Youtube videos no longer support playback within the post? It seems when clicking on embedded Youtube thumbnails, I get taken to another tab with the Youtube URL now instead of it playing directly Thanks for indulging. Curious on your thoughts. Yes, YOU :D

    Anyone else having issues with Rdio today? 바카라사이트  I have $125 of pending activity on my account (Rdio Gift Certificates) that I didn't authorize. Fifty dollars worth posted after I contacted Rdio via email to ask about the first $75. Tried to get them on the phone but failed. Already contacted my bank. Thanks, Mike

    Look at your new site. At first feels clean. But it is very bad, with bad text fonts and tiny columns. This is the next generation of responsive html. The one that let you having the same layout in a tablet or a widescreen monitor. 안전놀이터 Did you like Game Life articles? I dare you to find Game Life in this new site. Everything is Entertainment.

    Meerkat was starting to become a social darling for the social media crowd. Meerkat allowed people to start streaming personally and made it a simple cleaning app. They were doing so well until Twitter decided to act up again. Again, Twitter is attempting to kill a competitor through API death. They want to keep to their own company which they recently acquired for no good reason as the main streaming client. The irony: the thing that kept then going, invented ways to improvement to their platforms and arguably made them is the thing they want to kill off. As I heard arguably the thing that made their company known, hashtags, were not designed by them but by a third party. That just proves to me that Twitter should stop being a network and start being a platform. 인터넷바카라 Their setup doesn't allow for proper social network based setup. We recently go the ability to mute (which should have rolled out sooner) and yet that isn't enough. Thomas Ricker goes into better detail but we can't temporarily mute hashtag or people for a time duration. We can't hide particular posts we don't want to see. Search is STILL loathsome even with their advance search (certain ways of searching does not feel optimum). You would think that for a company that wants to deliver a great experience they would put time and effort into these things. Instead they have not. They do however have the setup for a platform: low data prints, easy to communicate with great authorization and great broadcasting features for a lot of people. It makes it easy for people to jump in and out of said platform easily and thus get included into conversations quickly like a platform. These things are what make Twitter not only fun but good enough so that a person can MacGyver their way into creating an experience that people want to use. They have frame work ready, so now they just got to make the framework get tools, those tools should be 3rd Party APIs. 카지노사이트         Back in the days of Twitter being a company that let users join up on their API, a lot of places came up with interesting ways to connect to Twitter. It could be their own client, it could be to their own services for a platform, or it could even be creating a service that extends the platform. One experience: When there was a "decent" Chrome Twitter client, I rarely checked Twitter because it did everything I needed to. In that moment, Twitter should have focused into being that main API area. Instead, they restricted and are now paying the price. They now have to take harassment even more seriously because people are leaving. They are having middling results trying to keep those here and grow the platform. All of these things cut into their profits and otherwise financial interests as a company. Moreover, it really makes it hard to talk to investors about how bad things are getting, and especially when you have an email come out admitting you suck at your job. Which now brings me back to this news with Meerkat. Twitter, once again, botches what could make it better by being a platform by opposing anyone to run with said platform and instead trying to lock people into said ecosystem. Which now means they're going to now manage streams which can make them even MORE overextended than they usually are. Twitter doesn't have to walk this path. Instead they could brach out: Create better tools and methods for your API including better ways for 3rd parties to show you how harassment works and how to deal with it (including action plans for Swatting). Get Digits out and become THE de facto phone number authorization protocol (which can then help verify accounts). Get crazy: acquire Disqus, create new ways to make Disqus that social API for commenting as well as arguably user interaction that anyone can custom make under the hood and tie up Twitter with it. 온라인카지노 Just whatever you do, stop trying to be a social network, because you're not a social network. Facebook is a social network, LinkedIn is a social network, Snapchat, Google+, and even Ello are social networks and better at the game than you could ever need to, would want to, or should be.

    So I used to have Adblock on Chrome on my Windows laptop. I already didn't use one on my Android because I simply don't browse enough on it for it to be of any use. 온라인바카라 Ok, so back to my Chrome browser. I used to have Adblock on by default for any and every website and it was great: clean webpages, fast load times, no annoying popups! Then I started whitelisting certain websites (The Verge was one, but also Facebook and Google). And then, I switched to having Adblock off by default and blacklisting certain websites (most notably, torrent sites and their terrible, terrible ads) but I was also blacklisting Youtube, because I watch a lot of it and the same ads kept coming on and when you've seen some crappy bank ad 5 times in a row it gets really old. 카지노사이트주소    Ok, so why did I end up completely uninstalling Adblock you ask? Well, the reason is actually kinda simple, I felt guilty I was stealing money away from content creators that I loved. A lot of the channels on Youtube I follow deliver top-tier content every week and even sometimes every day! These guys deserve to get paid for their work! Like I watched a VSauce video and god damn Michael deserves to have wads of money thrown at him! But since I can't do that, I watched a 5sec pre-roll instead. Same thing for Casey Neistat's vlog, Epic Meal Time, TheSmokingTire, LifeAccordingToJimmy, all these guys deliver great content super regularly! I'm not gonna pretend my time is that valuable, clearly I'm already spending hours watching YouTube every week I'm not fooling anybody. 바카라사이트  And yeah, every time I see that crappy ad about Russian girls in my area or some bank that wants to loan me money I still wanna punch my screen. It's worth it though, because at the other end of that screen there's the Verge staff, there's Michael Stevens or Harley Morenstein. And in the end, those guys are doing a hell of a job. And if I can pay them for their job by spending a couple minutes each day listening to the dude with a Lamborghini and seven bookshelves in his garage then I'll do it.   So how about you guys? Do you use Adblockers?

    I've been using the Steam Controller for the past week and I enjoy it a lot as a game controller. It has quite a learning curve in that kind of use, but I've found it comfortable to use with every game that I've tried thus far. However, the real kicker for me is as a new way of input for browsing the web on a large TV. 카지노사이트 Trying to do it with a previous controller was pretty much impossible. Windows as an OS never worked correctly with a controller. Even if you could get an analog stick to work as a mouse, the speed was so slow it felt aggravating. 인터넷카지노 With the Steam Controller, the trackpads emulating a trackball and scroll wheel feel excellent in use, and it turns the web into much more of a lean-back experience instead of a lean-forward-while-throwing-the-controller-out-of-a-window one. Netflix? Amazon? Youtube? Hulu? Google Music? Pocketcasts? I don't have an issue with these anymore... ...Well, I would imagine I don't with all of them. I never said anything about the UI problem. 인터넷바카라 UPDATE: The newest Beta for the Steam Client introduced a way to bring the keyboard outside of Big Picture mode. There is an option in the power menu to "Minimize" Big picture. When you do that, you can click down on the left stick to bring up the keyboard in any app you're in, even outside of Steam.
