Over 30 wild animals seized from Singapore flat

Jun 17 2013, 9:17pm CDT | by

Singapore, June 18 (IANS) Over 30 wild animals of highly endangered species such as the slow loris, marmoset, Indian star tortoise and ball python, prohibited for being kept as pets, have been seized from a flat in Singapore during a raid, authorities said.

Singapore, June 18 — Over 30 wild animals of highly endangered species such as the slow loris, marmoset, Indian star tortoise and ball python, prohibited for being kept as pets, have been seized from a flat in Singapore during a raid, authorities said.

The animals were recovered earlier this month by the country's Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority, Xinhua reported Monday. It was the largest seizure of wildlife from the inland neighbourhoods since 2002.

The animals have now been sent to the Wildlife Reserves Singapore, which operates local zoos.

In Singapore, one requires a permit for any import and export or re-export of animals.

Singapore is a signatory to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.

It is an offence to be in possession of or to trade in any illegally imported or acquired species listed under the convention.

Sep 8 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: National Center for Policy Analysis

The government takeover of our health care system didn't happen with the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010, says Avik Roy, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute. It happened in 1965, he writes, with the creation of Medicare and Medicaid. Even without the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the federal government would be spending trillions of taxpayer dollars on single-payer health care entitlements: Even before the passage of the ACA, per-capita spending on healt ...

Germany Added A Lot Of Wind And Solar Power, And Its Electric Grid Became More Reliable

Aug 12 2014 1:58pm CDT | Source: ThinkProgress

To hear its critics tell it, Germany’s ambitious push to switch over to renewable energy has delivered an electrical grid that’s capricious, unreliable, and prone to blackouts. But according to data highlighted by ECO Report last week, the reality on the ground couldn’t be further from that caricature. Specifically, the availability of electricity in Germany was lost only for an average of 15.91 minutes per customer in 2012, according to figures from the Council of European Energy Regula ...
