of how was vladimir putin’s television screen showing all five olympic rings?

Images were released of Vladimir Putin in his presidential suite with a television showing all five Olympic rings from the opening ceremony – but in the ceremony there was no fifth ring.

Russia endured its first embarrassment as hosts of the Winter Olympics on Friday when a dramatic representation of the Olympic rings failed during the opening ceremony.

A centre-piece of the ceremony, five lit snowflakes were suspended in mid-air in the Fisht Olympic Stadium, as can be seen on the television in this photo of Vladimir Putin in his presidential suite…

Five snowflakes were supposed to transform into five interlocking rings during the event, but number five (the red one) appeared to get stuck, serving as an unintentional slight to the nations it is generally considered to represent (Japan and China).

Photos of four fifths of the Olympics symbol soon spread on social media, overshadowing a performance from Russian duo Tatu.

of some one burnt straits times in front of sph news centre

We thought the ST ought to be burnt as its reporting rubbish for many years and an international disgrace to our country. Its press ranking has been dropping throughout the years and though SPH don’t care, as citizens we are bothered by the lack of a free press. Now the government wants to curtail the internet too…I thought we are a democratic society? By the way, we have picked up the debris after the burn and there is no injury to anyone or property nearby.

Petition to reduce National Service

National defense is important for Singapore. However, we should review our approach to make sure that the budget and resources are effectively used to produce the desired outcome.

Our defense budget is high as a proportion of GDP in relation to other countries. We also require our male citizens to spend two years full time for military training and to be called back for reservist training over a period of up to 15 years.

Two years is too long. In many countries that have conscription, they are able to achieve their training within 12 months.
