Kim Huat looks at factors that affect Singapore's egg situation, exploring the four pillars of food security: availability, access, utilization, and stability. What does Singapore do, moving forward? How does the domestic politics of Malaysia impact the self-sufficiency of our tiny island nation and the availability of pomfret for Chinese New Year reunion dinners? What are the threats to our egg supply and how do we bear the yolk of our vulnerabilities? This, and other deep academic thoughts, by Kim Huat, Singapore’s foremost expert in being hungry all the time.
Kim Huat muses on the Singapore-Malaysia ILS spat over the airspace near Seletar Airport and Pasir Gudang, and takes the Malaysian Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke Siew Fook, to task for his (lack of) understanding of the Instrument Landing System, and basic aviation principles.
Kim Huat also looks at the nuances between using Obstacle Assessment Surfaces (OAS) and Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OAS) to determine safe minimum heights for approach, departure and circling procedures, as per international aviation standards.
Kim Huat goes on to dwell on the operational measures that can be taken to minimize the impact of the tall buildings and creatures, on aeronautical safety.
Kim Huat shares his considered take on the Singapore-Malaysia spat over maritime boundaries, in the geopolitical dimension of maritime security and how this dispute impacts territorial claims and international law in the region.
I spent last week in Chicago, on the invitation of Apple, to check out their new education offerings. The event took place at Lane Tech High School in the Windy City, and we got to see a new entry-level iPad with Pencil support, in addition to the new school-based ecosystem that Apple made to make put Apple back into the classroom again.
Cheaper Chromebooks have made inroads into school environments, so this was a needful move on Apple's part. Besides making the Apple Pencil available for non-Pro iPad users via the cheaper new iPad, the Apple Schoolkit and other school apps aimed to make life easier for teachers to manage their classes, issue handouts, manage grades, and mark scripts digitally.
I will leave it to Kim Huat to give you the overview of the event via this video:
It was cold here but I had the right clothes. 0ºC to 2ºC at night, and surprisingly, 8ºC-12ºC during the day on the days I was there. Which is warm by Chicago standards.
The kids have been asking me for a pen-based device to draw and create stuff on. The iPad Pro was too pricey to be given to the kids. And a Wacom tablet would mean being tethered to the iMac at home. This new entry-level iPad with Pencil support came at the right time.
