S'pore may be on cusp of a major rat overpopulation problem: Pest busters

The scourge of rats is on the rise here, and rodent-related complaints are up by as much as 30 per cent.

Pest busters say construction sites are chiefly responsible for this. But also to blame are poor housekeeping habits and that neighbourhood cats are no longer catching rats.

Suzuki Cup hosts Vietnam twice squandered their lead as Indonesia snatched a 2-2 draw in Hanoi at the My Dinh Stadium on Saturday night.

The Red Jerseys took the lead after 11 minutes through Que Ngoc Hai, who capitalised on Indonesia's poor defending from a corner.

The lead lasted 22 minutes before Dinh Tien Thanh gifted the ball to Zulham Zamrun and the Merah Putih midfielder made no mistake as he drilled the ball into the bottom corner.

While Toshiya Miura's side regained the upper hand with a superb strike from Le Cong Vinh in the 68th minute, they could not make their dominance count as Samsul Arif pounced to score Indonesia's second equaliser on 84 minutes.

Vietnam's next match will be against Laos on Tuesday after Indonesia take on the Philippines earlier that day.

The Philippines kicked off the 2014 Suzuki Cup with an emphatic 4-1 comeback win over Laos at the My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi on Saturday evening.

While the Azkals started the game brightly by creating several chances, the Laotians landed the first blow of the Group A encounter after 21 minutes through Khampeng Sayavutth's free-kick.

Despite the setback, the Filipinos continued to plug away at their opponents and were eventually rewarded with an equaliser through defender Simone Rota, who nodded home a Manuel Ott corner on 40 minutes.

Former Chelsea man Phil Younghusband put the 2012 semi-finalists ahead just nine seconds into first-half added time with a header off a Jerry Lucena cross from the left.

The Philippines then sealed the result in the second half through substitute Patrick Reichelt, who came on for Mark Hartmann in the 66th minute, with goals in the 77th and 88th minute. Both strikes came off assists from Younghusband.

Thomas Dooley's men will face Indonesia in their next match on Tuesday ahead of Laos' clash with Vietnam.

Sensational video: A truck jumps over a speeding F1 car

A truck jumping over an F1 car.

The Lotus F1 team might not be turning heads in the F1 world with their performances but they have recently released a video which has certainly got the internet talking.

They are claiming a Guinness World Record for the longest truck jump of 25.5m over a speeding F1 car.

That's right, they did this:


The video, which was uploaded onto Lotus sponsor EMC's YouTube page on Nov 21, has already garnered over 364,000 views and counting.

Simply stunning, isn't it?

Stuntman Martin Ivanov, who has won awards for his work in the Bourne movies, drove the F1 car.

Equally talented ​stuntman Mike Ryan, who has won awards for his work in the Fast and Furious franchise, piloted the truck.  

Here's a bonus: Ryan's other stunts.
