@LTAsg check out #Singapore #mrt network in 2024, with the complete #TEL #DTL Thomson-East Coast Line & Downtown Line

The 31 stations on the TEL will be completed in stages from 2019 to 2024. Works for service utilities and road diversions as well as piling works have commenced for the northern stretch of the TEL. For the eastern stretch, civil tenders will be called in early 2015 with works to commence by end-2015. When completed, the TEL will link commuters to the NSEWL, NEL, CCL and DTL. Commuters will enjoy significant time savings when travelling from the northern parts to the eastern parts of Singapore.

When completed, the Thomson-East Coast Line will provide commuters greater linkages to the existing 5 MRT lines

of passengers fight on chongqing to hong kong flight

Fight onboard #airchina #CA433 flight from #chongqing to #hongkong.

Big Fight On Passenger Plane, Chongqing-to-Hong Kong Flight Almost Turns Back — At 9am, on Air China Flight CA433 from Chongqing to Hong Kong, a dispute occurred between passengers on-board. The cause involved two female passengers in one row being upset with a child behind them being too noisy, with the passenger in the row behind blaming the the front passengers’ seat for affecting them. These several passengers got into a physical fight on the plane over this, with the plane nearly turning back as a result. After arriving in Hong Kong, Hong Kong police immediately intervened to handle the dispute.

The two females in the forward row felt the baby behind them was noisy, while the passengers behind felt those in front had reclined their seats affecting their leg space, then they argued, then they fought.

Passengers Fight on Chongqing to Hong Kong Flight

The story of a Chinese passenger pulling open a door to “get some fresh air” as the plane prepared for takeoff went viral earlier in the week, while at the weekend four Chinese tourists threw hot water and noodles at a AirAsia flight attendant in anger over their seating arrangement and a spat over a purchase receipt.

of the interview just disappeared from america’s biggest theater chains

Sony has cancelled all current plans to show The Interview. @JamesFrancoTV @Sethrogen #sony #theinterview #northkorea

The biggest movie theater chains in the United States have cancelled all current plans to show The Interview following threats to attack screenings of the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The three largest chains in the US — AMC, Regal, and Cinemark — are reported to have called off screenings for the movie, as has Cineplex, the largest chain in Canada. While Sony has not officially cancelled release of The Interview, its availability only at small theater chains means that it will be unwatchable for many potential viewers.

A version of Kim Jong-un’s death scene is already out in the wild.

Watch the Kim Jong-un assassination that was too gory for Sony to approve

Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) are the team behind the popular tabloid-TV show “Skylark Tonight.” After learning that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un (Randall Park) is a huge fan of the show, they successfully set up an interview with him, hoping to legitimize themselves as actual journalists. However, as Dave and Aaron prepare for their journey to Pyongyang, the CIA steps in, recruits them, and assigns them an incredible mission: Assassinate the dictator.

of star wars-themed christmas light show is so excessive and so amazing

A music teacher from California has lit up his entire property, added a 17-foot guitar, and set the entire thing to a Star Wars mash-up. #starwars #christmas #abc #lightup @ABC

The five-minute lightshow — which, by the way, would put most professional stage crews to shame with its precision and choreography — involves about 100,000 lights and 12,500 lighting channels, according to the creator. Revel in the magic, and just be glad you don’t live next door.

Star Wars-Themed Christmas Light Show Is So Excessive And So Amazing

Best of Star Wars Music Christmas Lights Show 2014 – Featured on Great Christmas Light Fight!

Here’s my tribute to my favorite songs on Star Wars! The display has been featured on ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight and twice on ABC’s Good Morning America. I sequenced the show using LOR, mixed the music/sound effects with Digital Performer, and filmed it using a 35′ lift at 3am :) This is now my second year decorating. I built all the props using wood, metal, acrylic and corrugated plastic. I am a music/teacher director for a living (COVA Conservatory in Oakland and Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont), hence the massive instruments! If you look closely (especially during the Cantina song) the instruments are playing the real notes! The beams can be seen for miles but I went out of my way to avoid shining the beams on houses and flight paths. The neighbors are very supportive especially since I use the display to raise money for the poor and homeless through my church. The guitar is 17′, the piano is 19′ and the drums are standard. About 12,500 channels running around 100,000 lights. Also, Come by and see it in person on the corner of Lafayette and Ruschin in Newark most nights from 6-10pm. Because of the light beams on the roof, I turn off the display in heavy rain. Fair use for educational purposes. Merry Christmas everyone!

List of tracks in order of mix:

“Star Wars Main Title and the Arrival at Naboo” – Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

“Duel of the Fates” – Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

“Across the Stars (Love Theme)” – Star Wars Episode II – The Phantom Menace

“Battle of the Heroes” – Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (Light Saber Fight)

“The Hologram; Binary Sunset” – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

“Cantina Band” – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

“Ben Kenobi’s Death/TIE Fighter Attack” – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (TIE Fighter Crash)

“The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme)” – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

“Victory Celebration, End Title” – Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

of awesome behind the scenes video shows how 7 scenes are filmed in 1 take

Johnnie Walker @johnniewalker_ @JohnnieWalkerUS @JohnnieWalkerID @JohnnieWalkerMx has a pretty neat commercial on air these days that covers 7 different backgrounds in just one long take. #KeepWalking #cool #ads #2015

Johnnie Walker has a pretty neat commercial on air these days that covers 7 different backgrounds in just one long take. It’s a well choreographed and perfectly timed spot, a man is at a bar and starts walking. As he moves along, the scenery changes along with him to give him a wild journey until he’s back at the bar.

But as fun as the ad is, it’s much more interesting to see how the commercial was filmed. In the behind the scenes footage below, you can see the moving stage and various cameras at work and other sprinkles of movie magic in action.
