I don't have much space to accomodate the moving of my listening seat. Seat is currently roughly at the point where bass issues is minimal. Agree with Blue Starfish that every room is different and I believe that not every individual will have the same preferred spot in any particular room. I play around with spks positioning much more. So far have moved them more than 200 times. Now I just listen. Very happy with the majorityof music played.  ;D

Every room sounds different. What works for one, may not work for another. Especially if there are windows or glass doors on one or two sides. And where the door is located also affects the sound.

My most challenging placement involved bay window on left side, wooden door on the right side, glass bricks plus solid wall behind the speaker, another wooden door behind the left speaker. Ended up that the best placement was right speaker fire straight. Left speaker fire at 40 deg angle. Use eyes, cannot comprehend. Close eyes and listen, the imaging was dead centre with layering.

For example :
I have been waiting for MOH to correct their link on Situation Report

 
MOH 1.jpg


See that, Date is 22 Oct 2021 but the link is still pointing to 21 Oct 2021.


Nowadays, one doesn't need so many lines of coding to do a simple job yet....
I really have no idea what would happen if these people design and develop mission critical application.

Have to think positively  ;D
SMS arrived at 5:30 a.m is better than arriving at 3:00 a.m. on the top of 2 hours dead line ;D

Why those amoeba brains donno how to program the code to only send out earliest 07:00am? Or give 4-6 hours turn-around time.

This is expected.

How can SP set the price for the consumers and then get tens of 3rd party companies to sell you the same electricity at discounted rate and yet let these companies make money??

(Audio)

Agreed. How can these new companies with all their costs of admin, marketing, promotions etc. make money? Only makes sense if SP has profit margins that are too fat, and if that's the case, then do something with SP.

Admittedly I'm one of the apathetic ones who never switched. I found there were just too many options (and in my defence, many were quite unclear about charges and penalties) and the one time I tried to get a deal with Singtel, my application went into some black hole and never heard anything back.

Apart from requirements of Licence and Audition,

I think that's a big part of it. My daughter did some for charity fund-raising a couple of years ago and the licensing (done by the school) was not trivial. And of course now with COVID it can only be more complicated, if it's even allowed.

SMSs are delivered through SMS Gateway that has lots if limitations ( these are designed back in 20th century ) so usually have to be send out in batch of about 200 and have to wait for the clear bit.

And MOH at this point of time might have ten of thousands of SMSs to send out. 

Have to think positively  ;D
SMS arrived at 5:30 a.m is better than arriving at 3:00 a.m. on the top of 2 hours dead line ;D

Well what to do.  The system might have been designed by the same group who designed TT. No logic, no error,  catching as well no stress testing.....................

Anyone kena this scenario before?

PCR positive. Informed to self isolate at home, done as instructed. SMS comes at 0530am to make a declaration within 2hrs.

For f*ck sake, 0530am SMS to a person, who is sleeping, and not fluent in English, with a 2hr f*cking deadline.

Whole family went into panic mode

Just wanted to find out if others kena this sort of sh*t before or not?

Game of Numbers


Quite satisfy with 90.42% of vaccine effectiveness on Singapore deceased cases, I went ahead to check how is other countries that have high vaccination rate. Just for a quick search, I found this :
What do new Israeli data say about effect of vaccines & boosters vs. death/critical/severe disease?. The author of the post used Israel MOH data and plotted according to mathematic formulae. I used his number that he retrieved from Israel MOH to compare with ours. There are 30 days in 10 Aug to 8 Sep, to be fair, I used latest Singapore data 30 days.

The formula I use to calculate the effectiveness is the same as the formula used on calculating efficacy of Pfizer and Moderna.

So here is the Singapore's number
 
GameOfNumber-2.jpg


It's very clear as day and night that effectiveness on Fully Vaccinated Group that comprises of Fully Vaccinated and Fully Vaccinated with Booster Group over Not Fully Vaccinated Group i.e Partially Vaccinated and Completely Unvaccinated is 90.16%



Let's see Israel data :
 
GameOfNumber-3.jpg



Whoooop.
Fully Vaccinated With Booster Group has effectiveness of Negative 0.16% over Fully Vaccinated Without Booster Group. So why take booster !
Fully Vaccinated Without Booster Group has effectiveness of 13.72% over Unvaccinated Group. Only 14% for 2 jabs ? 
The numbers are not promising at all when compared with Singapore.

Wait a minute, in calculation of Singapore the Vaccinated group comprises with and without booster. So it's not a fair comparison.......


Ok. Here it's
 
GameOfNumber-3-1.jpg


Haa effectiveness of Vaxed ( Fully Vaccinated with and without booster ) group over Unvaxed is improved only minor 13.83%
No way, the calculation must be wrong !.
Children under age of 12 are not entitled for vaccination, so this group must be taken out from Unvaxed Group.
All right, let's take out the number of children age of 12.

There were 2,229,128 children under age of 12, so Unvaxed Group left with 1,226,932.

 
GameOfNumber-3-2.jpg


Hah, now better the effectiveness of Vaxed Group has gone up to 69.14%

I think , the vaccine can do better than that.
How about sub-categorizing group to over 60 and between 12-60.


here we go !
 
GameOfNumber-4.jpg



That's a lot better !
Effectiveness of 83.09% and 89.05%

Time to stop comparing and let's announce that effectiveness of vaccine : Vaccine prevent dead in age of above 60 up to 90%




Same data , but just different in categorizing gives different result.

All things said and done , there were :
667 ( 277 + 307 + 83 ) deaths between 10 Aug and 8 Sep 21 recorded in Israel
226 ( 77 + 35 + 114 ) deaths between 23 Sep and 22 Oct 21 recorded in Singapore.


The fact has not changed.



All depended on how you want to look at the situation i.e. there are no wrong or no correct.
So I suggest , be united in difficult time, be better informed.

You want you go and have your jab, you don't want then don't need : it's voluntary scheme. No one should give any excuse for taking or not taking, should be bribed or be threatened.






Peace!







PS. The vaccine I am talking about here is to give immunity to COVID-19 to start with. And here we are talking about deaths from the COVID-19. There is nothing to start about , is there ?
