TOKYO: Chinese Taipei golfer CT Pan has found an ingenious way around the "no family" rule at the spectator-free Tokyo Olympics - he employs his wife as his caddie. Pan, who has enjoyed one win on the United States PGA Tour in 2019, said on Wednesday (Jul 28) that his wife Michelle Lin could be key to a podium finish when the men's event starts at Kasumigaseki Country Club on Thursday. "Since this is the biggest event in my life, and for the whole world, I needed to bring out my best. She's my best caddie," said the 29-year-old Pan, who tied for 30th in Rio de Janeiro five years ago. "She wanted to be with me. Most importantly, we've got a great record together," said Pan, who finished as joint runner-up at the 2018 Wyndham Championship with Lin on the bag. "She knows me very well, she's caddied before and knows my bad habits. She can say the right thing at the right time. She'll help more on the mental side, which I think will make me happy." The pair are staying with the ... » Learn More about ‘My best caddie’: Chinese Taipei golfer enlists wife for Olympic bid

SINGAPORE: On Wednesday (Dec 2), Tampines Rovers secured qualification for the group stage of the 2021 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League - the first team from Singapore to do so since 2010. Much has changed in Asia’s premier club competition since the Singapore Armed Forces Football Club (SAFFC), now known as Warriors Football Club, was knocked out after finishing third in its group. The tournament has grown in a number of ways. It will feature 40 teams next year, an increase of eight from 2020. Standards have also risen since 2010. Chinese clubs have invested considerable amounts in world famous players and coaches with the likes of Shanghai SIPG lining up former Brazilian internationals Hulk and Oscar, whose combined transfer fees cost a reported US$150 million in 2016.

WEED out those ugly people who are taking advantage of the present tough time to “sweep clean” food banks put up for those in need to get essential food items. Action should be taken against these irresponsible, selfish members of the public who only leave the poor and needy in despair and frustration. Viewing CCTV footage which have gone viral on Facebook of some bagging almost everything at food banks, leaving nothing behind, only makes your blood boil. While countless kind-hearted Malaysians have come forward to help those in financial despair, there was this video of four people in a car, caught snatching everything from a food bank. Then there was another video of a food bank emptied within minutes when a bunch of people rushed to snatch the food, some taking more than what they obviously needed. Thanks to the government’s proactive responses to this health crisis, the Food Basket Programme and another new initiative, Bakul Prihatin Negara, will see essential food items ... » Learn More about Towards herd immunity and regaining our treasured freedom by year-end
MANILA, Philippines – He’s either a shameless, well-trained prevaricator, a repentant truth-teller, or someone caught in between. 57-year-old Edgar Matobato appeared twice before partisan senators who grilled him and tried to assert that his shocking revelations about the infamous Davao Death Squad (DDS) and President Rodrigo Duterte were too incredible to be true. Practically illiterate after completing only Grade 1 many decades ago, he was made to look stupid and inconsistent in his narration of what he knew. The son of a forest ranger who planted coffee and corn to support his family, the short, stocky Edgar with streaks of silver hair showed little traces of a man who had witnessed and even participated in the killing of hundreds of people – many of them criminals who were a menace to Davao. They were drug pushers, snatchers, hold-uppers, land-grabbers, and they all deserved to die, he thought. Edgar took pride in his job. He says his was among ... » Learn More about Edgar Matobato: Liar or truth-teller?
Health Minister Ong Ye Kung issued a clear message to Singaporeans listening to his Ministerial Statement in Parliament on July 26 -- Singapore should shift its "collective psychology" on Covid-19 and get ready to treat it as an endemic disease. This includes scrapping or modifying existing Covid-19 protocols for infected cases. However, this would not be possible without high vaccination rates, which have helped to keep hospitalisations and deaths low, despite the recent spike in cases linked to the KTV and Jurong Fishery Port clusters. KTV cluster origins Ong provided a background on how the now-infamous "KTV cluster" was discovered. The Ministry of Health (MOH) discovered on July 12 several positive Covid-19 cases among individuals who frequented KTV bars. They included patrons and hostesses working in the bars, who were engaged in barred "high-risk" activities, although Ong did not specify what these were. MOH moved to isolate infected people and identify ... » Learn More about S’pore to remodel Covid-19 treatment closer to how flu patients treated: Ong Ye Kung

MANILA, Philippines – The United States embassy in Manila recently posted a series of photos and videos depicting the relief operations conducted in several areas across the Philippines.
