Singaporean electric microcars compared to paper offerings for dead: Here's the startup's response

A local startup aims to make our lives easier by providing a sustainable transport option for that last-mile journey between MRT stations and homes — that solution is electric microcars.  Singapore firm QIQ Global plans to launch what they call QIQ Pods — their two-seater electric cars — in Punggol, where residents might still face some trouble travelling about, even with LRT stations.  Though similar in concept to the electric car-sharing services offered by BlueSG, QIQ Pods will apparently be much cheaper to rent, according to CNA. It is estimated to cost $2 for an adhoc half-hour ride, and for those who'd be using the service multiple times daily, the subscription fee could be between $30 to $50 a month.

'Outpouring of humanity' as police, mall staff and passers-by help auntie with dementia at Jem

We might not be able to control what happens in life, but we can certainly choose how to react. And what one shopper witnessed in Jem shopping mall on Wednesday (Aug 12) might have begun as an unfortunate episode, but allowed her to see people from all walks of life banding together to help someone in need. Facebook user Scarlett Chong recounted the emotional incident in a post that has since garnered over 3,300 likes and more than 1,800 shares. Chong wrote about how there had been a «commotion» in the mall, adding: «A lady with dementia, had an unfortunate toilet episode, and her adult son, with anger management issues, were both in the handicapped cubicle. »He probably lost control of his temper and the shouts drew a lot of attention.
