SINGAPORE: With significant CPF funds being funnelled to housing, and a substantial reason why Singaporeans' retirement savings may be inadequate, Singapore needs to consider that housing and retirement security are two sides of the same coin. LEASEHOLD PROPERTY NOT REALLY THE PROBLEM The finite land tenure system in Singapore is hardly unique. In Hong Kong, virtually all land is under leasehold, most with terms of 75 or 99 years. In Japan, residential land leases of 50 years can be found in urban centres. House prices adjust accordingly. Citizens there generally do not expect the government to swoop in and rescue them when their leases expire. When new HDB flats are sold with 99-year leases, nearly all Singaporeans benefit up front. At the end of the minimum occupation period, resale prices are almost invariably much higher than the purchase price. The home owner has also paid for their housing up front, in effect inflation proofing their housing needs – important when … [Read more...] about Commentary: Can shifting the emphasis to renting help solve Singapore’s public housing puzzle?
SINGAPORE: Everywhere around us, there are people who hit their “peak” late in life. Charles Darwin was 50 before he published On the Origin of the Species in 1859. Colonel Sanders was 65 when he founded Kentucky Fried Chicken. Bernhard Langer, now 63, is still winning professional golf tournaments with 11 senior major championships under his belt. But peaking is perhaps not quite the right word, as it suggests an inevitable decline. Some people seem to go on forever. This is probably best summed up by the irrepressible George Burns, the American comedian who, on reaching his 100th birthday was quoted as saying: If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.

SINGAPORE: The Singapore Zoo was jam-packed during the recent Deepavali public holiday as happy families roamed around the exhibits. Visitors snapped photographs of the proboscis monkeys and the hornbills relaxing in the afternoon sun. But mere metres away at the zoo's hospital, there was palpable tension as around a dozen vets crowded around a sedated clouded leopard. One vet kept a close eye on the anaesthesia level, ensuring that the 15kg carnivorous cat remained sedated, while another examined its razor-sharp jaws. Dr Abraham Mathew, a senior vet with Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS), wiped his sweaty eyebrows as he placed a catheter into the leopard’s urethra - a tube that carries urine and semen through the penis. Then, it flowed. The leopard’s semen filled the vial; barely three drops but it was enough for the team’s senior endocrine technician Josephine Kawi. She would take the vial to the adjacent laboratory and examine the sperm through a … [Read more...] about ‘Can’t wait until it’s too late’: Wildlife Reserves Singapore ramps up breeding efforts for endangered species
