As part of the test, conducted from March to July, surveyors bought toys from all over the island. They picked out items that were brightly-coloured and malleable, indicators that the products contained lead and phthalates. Out of the 50 toys, 23 exceeded limits for those two chemicals. All were made in China.


jia lat man.... how can china ever hope to reach world class status when they consistently give themselves such bad publicity...

As Singapore does not currently have toy safety standards


so much for yacob's credentials... day light robbery salary.... cant even manage a small 40x40km country's consumer safety affairs...

Be careful of what you eat in China.

Yale Professor Chan CM, in his lecture at Beida Univ about poisonous eels being sold in China and how widely the local eel farms are using hormones which remain in the human body sometimes for 7-8 yrs.

Prof Chan went on to say that an Environmental Scientist whom he met at Suzhow meeting told him "my relative who owns a bean sprouts farm said that because of the use of hormones, the sprouts normally take 5 days to be ready for sale is now ready in 1 day. Truckloads are sold to Canton and no one in his village will eat the stuff they farmed. "

Hairy Crabs : Mostly from Jiangsu .. Each year, the crabs became more affordable due to large harvest. They are bred using all kinds of toxins : hormones, antibiotics.

From the baby crabs stage, the crabs are fed around 10 types of chemicals. In Fujian , they are worse, they will feed the female crabs with birthcontrol hormones so that the mother crab will be plumb and ready.

24 hours after they are fetched, the crabs arrive HK dinner table, but not before they were fed one last time with antibiotics so that they will stay healthy enroute.

If you walk along the small streets in the Crab Farms, you will see many shops selling "Medicine for Crabs"; there are at least 10 different kinds on their "menu".

Next Magazine Investigative Journalists took 12 Hairy Crabs for lab test. 11 of them have 土黴素. 6 have 氯黴素 All damaging to blood, and esp bad for pregnant women and foetuses.

If they tell you their crabs are fed by organically (versus Chemically Fed), that means they are fed by decomposing carcases of dead cats, dogs, chicken. The dogs died from first being poisoned, or from diseases. The owner of the crab farm pulled from under a bed a dead carcass, deskin and dehaired it, waving a piece of the leg proudly pronouncing it as "organic feed".

These dogs came from a private vendor that kills the dogs by poisonous gases. The dog died from chemical poisoning.

The investigative journalists from HK witnessed such display of "organic feeding" when the farmer tossed the dog carcass into the pond. They watched 2 crabs feeding on the decaying carcass.

The Fishery Dept of the govt showed that the most famous YC Lake for Hairy Crabs, at maximum can only produce 13,000 Class 1 Crabs. HK imported 130K crabs all claiming it's from YC Lake.

JiangSu natural water engineer Mr Tong, TK said the the whole of China claims that the hairy crabs they sell are from YC Lake. The only exception being those sold in Tibet , a desert :-P

Turtles, Snakes, all fed by chemicals, as well as birth control hormones.
It's all about "how much you made when you were right" & "how little you lost when you were wrong"

Implementing work-life balance
Involving middle managers in the process is the key to success, says Hawazi Daipi

By Cassandra Chew
MIDDLE managers are key to the success of work-life balance strategies in the workplace but are often left out of the process when it comes to implementing such measures.

The involvement of line-managers and supervisors, in addition to that of bosses, makes a critical difference to the effectiveness of work-life strategies, Senior Parliamentary Secretary (Health and Manpower) Hawazi Daipi said on Thursday.

'An effectively implemented work-life strategy helps employees better meet their work demands and personal needs, which will, in turn, benefit the employer,' he added.

'From the employee's perspective, better work-life harmony means less tension between work and personal lives, and a better quality of life overall, resulting in improved ability to perform at their best at work.'

Credit Suisse buys into this philosophy. Recognising that not all middle managers were comfortable facilitating such changes at work, it helps them ease into the role in ways such as mentoring, and interaction with workers at networking events.

'Baby boomers may not necessarily know how to manage younger workers of today. But if we expose them to different ways of leadership, they will be much more open,' said Ms Niki Kesoglou, a regional director at the international bank.
"If a speculator is correct half of the time, he is hitting a good average. Even being right 3 or 4 times out of 10 should yield a person a fortune if he has the sense to cut his losses quickly on the ventures where he has been wrong" - Bernard Baruch
