How to take a 349 USD Apple Watch and make it look like the 10k USD golden Watch Edition: http://j.mp/1z1oLR3
You don't have to spend $10,000 to get a gold Apple Watch. All you need is this video and a can of spray paint.

My tribute to the late Lee Kuan Yew, former Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore. I've created his profile on WikiTree.com together with his wife and his ancestors.

If you would like to help by further adding sources and data (a lot of precise dates and locations are still missing, same for children & other family members) please feel free so.

WikiTree is like Wikipedia and allows changes from everyone (who has signed the code of honor). WikiTree's mission is "“to grow a single worldwide family tree that will make genealogy free and accessible for everyone." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WikiTree

R.I.P.

How about for your own family? WikiTree is the perfect place to preserve those precious memories that otherwise most likely get lost after our death

Hi Rebecca, great program you wrote first of all, many thanks for that. The soft voice on the video was mentioned already, hard to hear unless one uses earphone. I also don't have the "ALL" on the chromosome selection, it's difficult this way to find a specific cousin by name (unless there is a way to do it).

I also would like to recommend a new function where you're suggesting possible matches for action, instead of us manually trying to find double entries from several testing companies (it's easy for those profiles we managed but many of our matches upload to several companies as well). That would be really helpful.

Will work myself more into GenomeMate but after importing 1500 matches from GedMatch (their max they show), over 1200 from 23andme and a couple hundred from FTDNA I will have my hands full going through the data and cleaning it up (merging, adding family tree info and other info I had so far in a huge Excel file).

Again, great software you wrote and putting it up for free is something that will help spread it to many genealogists!

No one has talked about the effect the Apple watch will take on our iPhones when we have to keep Bluetooth on for the whole day. It will drain a lot more and most of us have to recharge our iPhones already once per day (night)!

So Mr Spock killed himself. Well, or rather Leonard Nimoy killed himself slowly.

Why you might ask? Well, according to this article stating his wife he died of COPD, like my Dad. That means he was a heavy smoker as there's no other way to develop COPD.

It's drowning you without getting in touch with water, as it clogs up all your fine lung parts so that even though oxygen is going in it never reaches the vital parts of your body and you die a long, painful death.

Hope that his death creates some awareness that smoking does kill you sooner or later, in many cases in a very painful and slow way.

His Wikipedia article confirms COPD as cause of death: Leonard Nimoy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Nimoy

More info about COPD: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_obstructive_pulmonary_disease

Please do share if you want to increase awareness about COPD. Thanks!

Leonard Nimoy, known to generations of Star Trek fans as Mr. Spock, died this morning at his home in Los Angeles, the New York Times reports. He was 83. Susan Bay Nimoy, his wife, said that the cause...

One discouraging thing is that he said he quit over 30 years ago. So, by far best never to start.

Well done, Hyundai, you made one girl very happy. Ads like these are way better than any other car commercial.

Crazy what is going on in the U.S.
100 days into 2015, and more than 300 people have died at the hands of law enforcement.

It's scary, as in if I'm visiting the US again and have any interaction with a police men, will I pee in my pants for doing something wrong and getting shot? Is it still the Wild, Wild West over there? Rarely someone is killed with a single bullet by a "I felt in danger" police officer but mostly them empty several bullets into their victim? Hello? Learn to shoot and stop what is putting you in danger with one well placed shot only.

Excellent video for all those young to remember what LKY did for his country or for those Ang Moh's like me that didn't live in Singapore during his time

Terrible accident, looks he maybe went too fast and air went under the car causing the back flip.

Well more cars lift their wheels there, that made me worry for a long time.Issue is the flat undersides. I know these drivers are so consistent that he must have done exactly the same as many laps before in the same car. Overlaying data I am sure that he had the same speed and braking as earlier or his teammates... It was just a gush of wind at wrong time on cars that barely defy physics.. aka too fast and regulations should be changed

I'm quite happy to live in the "dull" but second safest city in the world. Not "feeling" in danger is something you don't reakize immediately but its worth a lot I tell you!

#singapore #asia #travel
Asian and European cities come out on top. At number 10, New York City is the safest in the United States.

Totally agree.. There are so many small 'reliefs'. The mind doesn't focus on 'defense' as much.

Interesting research and article. It's the same in Singapore, nearly every Chinese kid is myopic. Who would have thought they don't get enough sunlight to counter it because they need to study too much?

#myopic #china #singapore #australia
More than 80 percent of high school students in Shanghai are myopic. A new study finds a link between higher income and poor eyesight. But the root cause is still hotly debated.
