Man arrested for trying to bribe Singapore police with cigarettes

A man was arrested on Sunday for affray and attempting to bribe police officers.

A 44-year-old man who was caught fighting near Bartley Rd attempted to bribe two police officers by offering them two unopened packets of cigarettes.

The bribe was rejected and the man was arrested for affray and attempting to bribe the officers, stated a police press release.

The incident happened at Kim Chuan Road, off Hougang Avenue 3, at around 4.40pm on Sunday.

Responding to a report of fighting, police voluntary special constable corporal Jeremy Koh and special constable sergeant Allan Tay arrived at the scene and proceeded to interview two suspects, aged 40 and 44.

It was during the interview that the older suspect tried to bribe the two officers.

The other suspect was arrested for affray. To commit affray is to disturb the public peace by fighting in a public place.

Both men will be charged in court on Tuesday. If found guilty of affray, they can be jailed for up to a year and/or fined up to $5,000. 

The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau will also be investigating the 44-year-old suspect for the bribery attempt.

Real Madrid are set to land Javier Hernandez on season-long loan from Manchester United with a view to a permanent deal.

The Mexican striker was photographed at the Sanitas La Moraleja hospital in Madrid, where the reigning European champions conduct medicals for their players.

While Hernandez has 59 goals in 154 appearances since moving to Old Trafford from FC Guadalajara in 2010, the 26-year-old has been firmly behind Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney on the Red Devils' pecking order.

After missing out on United-bound Radamel Falcao, Real boss Carlo Ancelotti has turned to the nippy forward nicknamed Chicharito to provide competition for Karim Benzema.

According to Marca, Hernandez will be handed the No. 14 shirt, the same number he wore at United.

Car bomb found at Philippines airport

An airport police officer and a sniffer dog patrolling Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International airport in Pasay City, Metro Manila on Monday.

A bomb was found in a van parked at Manila’s international airport early Monday morning, the Philippine authorities said.

A vehicle containing an “improvised explosive device” was found at the airport’s terminal three car park at about 1.45am, said a report by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). Three men were arrested.

An NBI official, who declined to be identified, said the suspects had been under surveillance for a month.

The suspects were assembling the bomb inside their vehicle when they were caught, the official said.

NBI director Virgilio Mendez declined to give details about the incident, saying “there is an ongoing follow-up operation”.

The terminal, which serves domestic and international airlines, operated as per normal on Monday and the Manila International Airport Authority said there were no continuing threats.

“(The authority) assures the public that (terminal three) and all other terminals remain safe and airport security personnel continue to stay vigilant in their respective areas,” it said in a statement.

Back to life in chains for Raju the crying elephant?

Raju the elephant, who cried when he was released from captivity, faces a legal battle with his owners who are trying to get him back.
Raju the elephant cried when he was released from captivity. His owners have launched a legal battle to get him back.

Raju the elephant captured hearts worldwide when he wept after being released from 50 years of captivity.

But now he could potentially go back to misery - after his former owners launched a legal battle to get him back.

Previously forced to work as a begging elephant, Raju's former owners insist he is their "rightful property".

During the time he was held captive, Raju's legs were bound with spiked shackles.

Rescuers took 45 minutes to remove the chains, which left Raju with chronic wounds.

In July, workers from the Wildlife SOS's Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in India rescued him during a midnight operation.

Raju then joined five female elephants.

The charity's founder Kartick Satyanarayan, who led the rescue operation, said: "We are devastated that after all he's been through, we're still having to fight for (his) freedom. His owner is arguing that Raju is his property, which must be returned to him for his use.

"We are hoping the courts will see sense that this can never happen as Raju was treated with appalling cruelty and torture in his hands in the first place and the man claiming ownership of Raju has no legal grounds to claim him back under Indian law."

The courts will decide Raju's fate at a hearing in Allahabad on Sep 4.

Rescuers have started a Raju Legal fund to fight such legal battles.

Mr Satyanarayan added: "'We want this case to set a precedent across India to change the way elephants are treated and abusers are punished and justice prevails for these magnificent creatures that suffer in silence."

RIP MSN Messenger: 7 things we will never forget

MSN Messenger will retire for good on October 31 leaving many with lots of fond memories.
MSN Messenger will retire for good on October 31 leaving many with lots of fond memories.

It's fair to say that most people have probably stopped using MSN Messenger in favour of Skype or Facebook.

Microsoft started to phase out MSN Messenger globally in April 2013.

It will be the end of an era when the service completely shuts down on October 31st, after 15 years of operation.

Till then, the service is only available in China.

For people who grew up in the 90s, the instant messaging software was an integral part of their childhood.

Why else would we rush home after school? Look no further if you need something to blame for not completing homework.

Ah, these are some of the memories we will never forget.

1. Using normal English characters for your MSN Nickname is a strict no-no.

This was more like it:

 

2. Cryptic messages on your personal MSN Messenger status, hoping your crush will get the hint.hint animated GIF

 

3. Did your crush just appear online? Time to appear offline and sign in again. 

He's not noticed you? Try again!

4. Secretly going on MSN past midnight to talk to your friends.

The biggest obstacle? That dial-up sound - and me begging the computer to shut up.

5. Only listening to cool songs when you are online because of Messenger's 'Now Listening' function?

'NSync? Save that for some bedtime listening.

It's time to tell the world I am listening to Nickleback (yes, they were considered cool back then).

6. When the conversation gets awkward, type BRB (Be right back) although you are still online - talking to other friends.

You say 'oops'

But your friends are still waiting for you...

A few hours later, they realise you are not coming back and they are like:

7. It took five hours to send that latest 'NSync song to your friend.

Monaco forward Radamel Falcao is on his way to Manchester United on loan.

Manchester United are set to land Monaco striker Radamel Falcao on a one-year loan deal.

Despite a strong pre-season, Louis van Gaal's team are winless after three games in the English Premier League.

Aside from losing to Swansea City on opening day at Old Trafford followed by away draws with Sunderland and Burnley in the EPL, the Red Devils crashed out of the Capital One Cup with a 4-0 humbling by League One side MK Dons.

Van Gaal is ready to turn to Falcao as he looks to for a remedy to the Red Devils' malaise and has struck a temporary deal for the Colombian star, who joined Monaco from Atletico Madrid last year for £50 million ($103.8m).

According to PA Sport, the French side want a £12m fee for a one-year loan of the 28-year-old hitman.

Before the shock move to United, Falcao was reportedly attracting interest from Real Madrid, Manchester City and Arsenal.

TENNIS: Emotional win for Wozniacki over Sharapova at U.S. Open

Caroline Wozniacki upset French Open champion Maria Sharapova in a ground-stroke marathon to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals, while Gilles Simon registered the first big surprise in the men's draw on Sunday.

France's Simon, the 26th seed, defeated Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer, who became the first top 10 men's seed to be shown the exit when he fell 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-3 in the third round at Flushing Meadows.

But it was the women's fourth-round match-up between Sharapova and Wozniacki that stole the show.

The 10th-seeded Wozniacki, who ruled as world number one for 67 weeks but never won a grand slam crown, showed great grit in battling to a 6-4 2-6 6-2 victory over fifth seed Sharapova in a two-hour 37-minute slugfest in sweltering conditions.

Victory sent the 24-year-old Dane to her first grand slam quarter-final since the 2012 Australian Open. Italy's Sara Errani awaits as her opponent.

Wozniacki used her stellar footwork and notable fitness to stymie Sharapova, who was forced into a slew of 20-stroke rallies that fit the Dane's game plan.

Wozniacki, who is in training to run this autumn's New York City Marathon, won the hard-fought first set by breaking Sharapova in the last game.

Sharapova dominated the second set to level the match at one set apiece when officials gave the players a 10-minute break invoking the heat rule.

 

 

Emotional Triumph

It was an emotional triumph for Wozniacki, whose personal life underwent a tumultuous year.

Wozniacki's slide down the rankings coincided with her dating and subsequent engagement to major golf champion Rory McIlroy.

This year, the Northern Irish golfer called off their wedding days after invitations were mailed.

"It means so much to me," she told the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd. "It's been a bit up and down year for me.

"To win against a champion like Maria is an unbelievable feeling."

Asked if she would skip any additional training for November's marathon run, Wozniacki said: "I think this afternoon I'm just going to take a nice bath, have a massage and chill. And I think I deserve to have some chocolate or something." - Reuters
