Dr. William Li, President and Medical Director of the Angiogenesis Foundation shared that we can eat to starve cancer. Cancer is just 5-10% attributable to genes, while the remaining is Environment and mainly due to our diet. Resveratrol in Red grapes & Red wine inhibits angiogenesis by 60%! That is what we should be having in our daily diet. Resveratrol is thought to limit the spread of cancer cells and trigger the process of cancer cell death (apoptosis). Resveratrol has also been known to reduce the activation of NF kappa B, a protein produced by a compromised immune system that can affect the growth of cancer cells.

Originally studies were conducted to investigate the “French Paradox”, a term coined by Dr. Serge Renaud, that the French seem to have lower rates of cardiovascular disease with a diet relatively high saturated fats. He found that a diet high in red wine correlated to a lower incidence of cardiac diseases, which was found to be very high in resveratrol. Continued studies of resveratrol conducted by Howitz and Sinclair found that in yeast, fruit flies, and small fish there were significant increases in lifespan. Later studies in mice found that there were drops in tumor formations, reductions in the incidents of neurological diseases, and protective benefits to the cardiovascular system.

Renovation contractors required to give notice for noisy works

September 24, 2017

ST Paper, 6 Aug 2017, Renovation contractors required to give notice for noisy works

We thank Mrs Joy Chan Jing Jing for her letter (Give advance notice for HDB renovation; Forum Online, July 28).

The HDB recognises that renovation works can cause disamenities to surrounding residents, and have put in place several measures to minimise inconvenience.

Flat owners are required to engage only contractors who are permitted to renovate HDB flats.

Their appointed contractor must obtain a permit from the HDB before carrying out the renovations in the flat.

A Notice of Renovation must be prominently displayed at the entrance of the flat before the renovation work begins, and remain displayed throughout the approved renovation period.

If the renovations involve noisy works such as the hacking of walls or tiles, the renovation contractor is also required to give written notice to the immediate neighbouring units (on the same storey as well as those above and below the unit) at least three days before work commences.

To minimise inconvenience to residents, such noisy works must be completed within three days – these works should be carried out only between 9am and 5pm, and are not allowed on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and the eve of major public holidays.

Residents who encounter renovation contractors who do not comply with the requirements can report them to the HDB via our Branch Service Line on 1800-225-5432 or the Essential Maintenance Service Unit after office hours.

The HDB will investigate and take necessary action against the errant renovation contractors.

In our high-rise and high-density society, a certain degree of noise is inevitable in our daily life.

We seek the cooperation of flat owners to abide by the guidelines in carrying out their home renovation, and for their neighbours to bear with the temporary inconvenience. A closer understanding and tolerance of each other will go a long way towards achieving a pleasant living environment.

Several ways to check on fund-raisers

September 24, 2017

ST Paper,  1 Aug 2017, Several ways to check on fund-raisers

We thank Mr Sim Ghee Choon for the suggestions in his letter (Make it easier to check on fund-raisers; Forum Online, July 12).

The Collector’s Certificate of Authority issued by the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and the Singapore Police Force (SPF) includes a QR code.

Members of the public can check if the fund-raiser has a valid House to House and Street Collections Licence by scanning the code with a smartphone.

The Office of the Commissioner of Charities is working on incorporating the QR code function in all permits issued for fund-raising appeals.

Apart from the QR code verification method, members of the public can also use the following methods to verify the authenticity of the collections when being approached by collectors:

•Send a query via SMS to 79777 using the following format: “FR”

•Perform a search using the online fund-raising permit search facility via the Charity Portal (https://www.charities.gov.sg), NCSS website or SPF website

•Use the Police@SG smartphone application. (Download the Police@SG application, and go to “More Links” to access the Charities and Fund-Raising search engine of the Charity Portal)

Know your CATS

September 23, 2017

The network switches cannot be bothered with CAT5e or CAT6 cables.

Cat5e and Cat6 cables utilize the same end piece RJ-45 and they can plug in to the same ports. The differences between each of these cables are their capabilities, as well as the methods and materials used to create them. The end that all the cables have in common is known as RJ-45, and it is capable of plugging into any Ethernet jack on a computer, router, or another similar device.

How to Make Windows 10 Accept File Paths Over 256 Characters

August 13, 2017

The Windows 10 default path length limitation (MAX_PATH) is 256 characters

you may use the NT-style name syntax “\\?\C:\users\very long path” to workaround this issue.

Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise
Ignore the MAX_PATH issue by overriding a group policy entry, gpedit.msc

Computer Configuration -> Admin Templates -> System -> FileSystem:
Enable Win32 long paths

Windows 10 Home
In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

On the right, find a value named LongPathsEnabled and double-click it. If you don’t see the value listed, you’ll need to create it by right-clicking the FileSystem key, choosing New > DWORD (32-bit) Value, and then naming the new value LongPathsEnabled .

In the value’s properties window, change the value from 0 (default) to 1 (ignore) in the “Value data” box and then click OK.
