Victim of 'camwhoring'
By Jessica Lim

A NATIONAL University of Singapore (NUS) undergrad has become the latest victim of an increasingly common trend: Teens and young adults who take pictures of themselves having sex or in other compromising poses, or allow others to do so.

Photographs of the undergrad having sex and in explicit poses have wound up on a United States-based website notorious for putting up pictures of naked or scantily clad women.

In this case, it is not known how the pictures were obtained, but word of them has spread quickly among Singaporeans, and online forums and blogs are now abuzz with references to them. The woman has made a police report, and the case is being investigated.

Counsellors and tech experts who spoke to The Straits Times say they are seeing many more youngsters taking such pictures these days. Those who do so are seeking cheap thrills, they say, and gadgets that make it much easier for them to live out their fantasies are now easily available.

But few realise that there is a high risk the photos or videos will end up being viewed by all and sundry, perhaps even halfway around the globe.

Counsellors say that as more people indulge in such behaviour, incidents such as those involving the undergrad will become more common.

The assistant director of the Asian Women's Welfare Association Family Service Centre, Mr Mani Joseph, said he sees about five young people who have taken such photos - some of whom have posted them online - each day. This was rare in the past, he said. 'Youth used to be shy. Now, they are bolder,' said Mr Joseph, who has counselled some who post topless photos of themselves online.

Dr Carol Balhetchet, director of youth services at the Singapore Children's Society, said the trend is so widespread now that it even has a name: 'camwhoring'.

She said she has had to counsel one teen every fortnight against such behaviour. Such acts were previously unheard of, she added.

Dr Balhetchet said the reason for such behaviour is that 'some youth are narcissistic and love looking at themselves. They are taking it a step further. 'Many don't realise how easily the material can leak out to the Internet.'

For me, I found that all the NDP songs in the last few years is regrettably forgettable. None of them is easy to remember... maybe I am getting old... or maybe I don't bother to remember them... I still remember those played in the 80s...

The other NDP song?

WHILE local indie rock band Electrico's song, What Do You See, is this year's National Day Parade (NDP) theme song, it has drawn flak from some detractors who feel the four-minute-long soft rock tune is not 'catchy' enough.

Enter Things So Singaporean, an upbeat ditty posted on YouTube that waxes lyrical about everything from the uncles and aunties buying lottery, to the durians keeping the Merlion company.

According to some local blogs, the song was composed and sung by Ann Hussein, with lyrics written by Judith d'Silva.

Since it was uploaded on YouTube in December last year, the song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIW7i0UT5j0) has garnered more than 9,000 page views, with rave reviews praising its quirky lyrics, and its catchy tune, compared to Electrico's tune.

Gushed one netizen: "This song should have been our National Day song this year.... Very Original and soooo.... Singapore..... GREAT!!!!!!!"

Elsewhere in the blogosphere, some netizens have even suggested that this little-known song be made the NDP theme instead, or at least, be featured as part of the NDP festivities.

On social networking site Facebook, a group with 277 members sought to garner support to make the song one of the official songs of NDP 2009.

The song was also featured on the N.E.mation! III website, which is for youths to express their ideas on Total Defence through animation'.

Electrico has graced previous NDPs as a fringe act. According to the band's frontman David Tan, What Do You See took about two weeks to write.

The band was originally formed in 1996 under the name Electric Company, which was shortened to Electric Co, and finally, Electrico.

You have been out of the education system for many years.

Very hard for them to 'brain wash' you ..... :lol:

Seriously, how many learn new NDP songs (or nation-building songs) since we left schools.
1. Always wait for the setup. NO SETUP; NO TRADE

2. The trend will END but I don't know WHEN.

Massa recovering, communicating 'passively' By PABLO GORONDI,Associated Press

BUDAPEST, Hungary - Felipe Massa's health was improving Monday after the Formula One driver communicated passively with doctors, and medical scans provided encouraging signs after surgery on multiple skull fractures.

Department of defense ministry spokesman Istvan Bocskai told the Associated Press that Massa was not speaking but that the 28-year-old Brazilian reacted when spoken to and was moving his hands and feet.

Massa was in life-threatening but stable condition following surgery on multiple skull injuries sustained during a violent crash in his Ferrari Saturday at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Bocskai said that military hospital doctors were reassured after no complications were uncovered by a CT scan. An ultrasound performed Sunday night to check on internal injuries revealed "nothing that would give cause for concern."

The sedated Massa was also being woken up more frequently.

"These are definitely positive signs," Bocskai said.

Massa received a concussion after a loose car part hit his helmet during a qualifying run on Saturday.

He then slammed into a protective tire barrier at about 120 mph causing multiple skull injuries that were operated on around one hour after being taken from the Hungaroring circuit.

Although Massa was in stable condition in the intensive care unit at AEK hospital following surgery, doctors called Massa's condition as life-threatening due to the severity of the injuries.

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo was scheduled to join the 11-time Grand Prix winner's family _ which includes pregnant wife Anna Rafaela _ on Monday.

F1's governing body is investigating the crash, which came amid a string of safety mishaps.

A Formula 2 driver was killed six days earlier after being struck in the head by a loose tire from another car and crashing into a barrier.

Motorsport authorities also suspended Renault from the next round of the championship for jeopardizing Fernando Alonso's safety when it failed to inform the two-time world champion of a nut wheel problem at Budapest. Alonso's wheel subsequently came off and bounced wildly down the track.

No F1 driver has died on the track since Ayrton Senna 15 years ago. The three-time champion died from head injuries after a violent crash in Italy.

Drugs traces on 90% of notes
WASHINGTON - US PAPER currency is roughed up and often soiled in circulation, but a study has found that some 90 percent of greenbacks contain traces of cocaine, giving new meaning to the term 'dirty money'.

That is a nearly 20 per cent jump over a similar study conducted two years earlier where 67 per cent of dollar bills were shown to contain cocaine traces, according to researchers who presented the study on Sunday at the annual National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.

The startling discovery points to the continuing widespread use of cocaine in the United States
, one of the world's biggest consumers of the drug. The capital Washington topped US cities, with 95 per cent of banknotes analysed from there found to contain minute amounts of cocaine.

Money is known to get contaminated with cocaine when drug dealers make a transaction or when users snort the drug using a rolled bill. But the study said the large-scale contamination takes place when the notes are whisked into currency-counting machines.

Evidence of the drug were more common in large cities like Baltimore, Boston and Detroit, while the cleanest bills were collected from Salt Lake City, Utah, the country's Mormon hub.

'To my surprise, we're finding more and more cocaine in banknotes,' said lead researcher Yuegang Zuo of the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth. He suggested the rise may be due to the economic downturn, 'with stressed people turning to cocaine.' The United States topped cocaine levels found in bank notes collected from over 30 major cities in five countries that also included Canada, Brazil, China and Japan.

The scientists, who used a modified form of a lab instrument called a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer for their measurements, said they found 'alarming' levels of cocaine in many areas.

Second in line was the US northern neighbour Canada, where 85 per cent of 27 banknotes studied showed drug traces, ranging from 2.4 micrograms to over 2,530 micrograms - the largest amount found but still less than a ten-thousandth of an ounce - of cocaine per note. Brazil came in third at 80 per cent, while China and Japan had the lowest levels, at 20 per cent and 12 per cent contamination respectively.

Amounts found in the 234 US banknotes analysed ranged from .006 micrograms - thousands of times smaller than a single grain of sand - to over 1,240 micrograms of cocaine, or the equivalent of about 50 grains of sand, per bill. Mr Zuo downplayed any health or legal concerns linked to the apparently poor job drug dealers are doing at laundering their money.

'For the most part, you can't get high by sniffing a regular banknote, unless it was used directly in drug uptake or during a drug exchange,' Mr Zuo said.

'It also won't affect your health and is unlikely interfere with blood and urine tests used for drug detection.' The study, Mr Zuo said, could help increase public awareness of cocaine use and help curb its abuse by assisting law enforcement agencies and forensic specialists to identify how the drug is used in a given community.

Cocaine is one of the most commonly used drugs in the world. In the United States, some six million people consume cocaine on a regular basis each year, for a whopping total of 259 to 447 tonnes worth US$35 to US$70 billion (S$100 billion).

SingTel ad on porn site
By Chua Hian Hou

AN ADVERTISEMENT promoting a SingTel website on a pornographic site has driven online users into a tizzy.

On Thursday, a Stomp user who called himself 'Disgusted' put up a screen capture of a SingTel inSing advertisement, apparently found at a pornographic website.

Disgusted said he received the screenshot in an email from a friend, and had subsequently put it up on the Stomp (Straits Times Online Mobile Print) citizen journalism website to highlight the issue.

'Is Singtel really so desperate that they need to resort to putting advertisements on porn sites in order to get attention?' he said.

SingTel, he added, 'is a well-known company from Singapore. The ad really spoils the image of our country and should be taken down immediately. I am shocked that such a thing could happen.'

A SingTel spokesman said that it was 'taking this matter very seriously and thoroughly investigating the situation.'

The company, she added, advertises only on 'relevant, appropriate and family friendly websites which would be seen by users of inSing.com - a lifestyle destination website providing a Singaporean point of view on what to do and where to go for all members of the family'.

inSing, a Singapore-centric directory service offering news, event listings, and user-generated reviews, was launched this May. According to website tracking service Hitwise, it is Singapore's 14th most popular website.

New media expert Calvin Siew said a 'rogue site' may have tricked SingTel into placing the advertisement.

Cash-strapped, unethical website operators, said Mr Siew, media agency Waggener Edstrom's manager for its digital practice, have been known to label themselves with fake keywords. These labels may trick automated online advertising engines into placing their ads with them, generating revenues for the website in question.

The pornographic site could not be identified from the screenshot. Most Stomp users though, did not appear as disgusted as the poster Disgusted.

'The inSing.com ad is about Satisfying Hunger at affordable price,' said another Stomp user, dontbsmee, tongue-in-cheek. 'Maybe they think it's a good place to place the ads for people that have cravings.'
