Lex Friedman, Macworld
If Lionâs autocorrecting a word that youâd prefer it simply leave alone, let it make the correction, then fix the word so that itâs spelled the way youâd prefer again. Next, Control-click (or right-click) on the word in question, and choose Learn Spelling from the contextual menu that appears. From now on, Lion wonât autocorrect that word any longer.

Musings From The Lion City
Singaporeans accept this. However to have a foreigner working in Singapore complain about a stamp duty, which almost every other country in the world has, and say that he will leave because of it grated on the nerves. Simply put; foreigners have it good in Singapore. Some might argue they have it better than Singaporeans in our own country!

Ng Lian Cheong, Channel NewsAsia
More than 10 passengers including a Channel NewsAsia reporter were trapped for more than two hours inside an SBS bus that had strayed from its usual route.
Apparently following instructions from the control centre, the bus had diverted to avoid traffic congestion at the Pan-Island Expressway but ended up being lost instead.
