SKM and PHC to release three new cinema etiquette videos to continue educating movie-goers on graciousness in the cinema

The Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) and Public Hygiene Council (PHC) will be releasing three new cinema etiquette videos (CEV) to raise awareness and inculcate the social norm of being more considerate to fellow citizens, especially in public spaces.

The light-hearted videos will advise movie-goers to silence their mobile devices, refrain from speaking in the cinema, and to bin their trash before exiting the cinema.

The videos will be screened for two years, from September 2019 to August 2021, at major cinema operators that include Cathay Cineplexes, FilmGarde Cineplexes, Golden Village Multiplex, and Shaw Theatres.

“Our cinema experience is not just about the movie, but how we conduct ourselves during and after the movie. Through the videos, we are reminding each other to be considerate in keeping to good cinema etiquette. By being considerate we make the movie experience more enjoyable for others and for ourselves. This is another step to being a greater society,” said Dr. William Wan, General Secretary of the SKM.

The new videos will succeed the previous CEV created by SKM and PHC that featured SKM’s notable duo, Ben & Bang. The previous video was screened from July 2017 to June 2019, and was watched more than 30 million times.

“Cleaning up after ourselves by binning our trash is not a revolutionary or complicated task. A simple act like this goes a long way in keeping our public spaces clean. Binning our trash once the movie is over is another gracious step we can take to keep the cinema clean for others and reduce reliance on cleaners,” commented Mr. Tony S Tan, Executive Director of the PHC.

“We have noticed a drop in the amount of litter collected after movie screenings in the past two years since the screening of the Ben & Bang CEV. Our cleaners now spend less time clearing the halls after movies. In addition, our cleaners have commented that movie-goers have made their jobs easier by throwing their trash directly into the bins stationed near the exits,” remarked Ms. Delphina Chua, Operations Manager of Golden Village Multiplex.

“Cathay Cineplexes has been using static visuals on screen before the start of a movie as a reminder for patrons to be respectful of cinema etiquette such as cleaning up after themselves, putting their phones on silent and refraining from talking during the movie. We hope that the new series of CEVs which addresses the various behaviours in a light-hearted way will continue to serve as a reminder and encourage our patrons to do their part to ensure an enjoyable movie-going experience for all,” noted a Cathay Cineplexes spokesperson.

Each video will be 15 seconds long, detailing the protagonists engaging in behaviour such as constant messaging on their phone, non-stop talking, and tossing items haphazardly. However, when it comes to watching a movie in the cinema, the protagonists stop misbehaving so that those around them can have an enjoyable experience.

Hong Kong police round up activists as major demo called off

by Aidan JONES / Jasmine Leung

Prominent Hong Kong democracy activists including a lawmaker were arrested Friday in a protest crackdown — a move described by rights groups as a well-worn tactic deployed by China to suffocate dissent ahead of key political events.

The sweep comes after a major rally planned for Saturday was banned by police on security grounds, and then called off by the organisers.

The latest protest had been due to mark the fifth anniversary of Beijing’s rejection of a call for universal suffrage in the semi-autonomous city, sparking the 79-day Umbrella Movement in 2014.

Hong Kong has been locked in three months of political crisis, with increasingly violent clashes between police and protesters that have prompted an escalating intimidation campaign from China.

Two of the Umbrella Movement’s leaders, Joshua Wong and Agnes Chow — both still well-regarded among the city’s youth — appeared in court accused of “inciting others to take part in unauthorised assembly” among other charges, having been arrested in dawn swoops on Friday.

After receiving bail, they spoke outside the court and Wong vowed to “continue our fight”, railing against the “chilling effect” of the arrests on opponents of Hong Kong’s Beijing-backed government.

Authorities are “trying to create white terror” to scare people away from participating in the social and democratic movement, he added — deploying a term used for China’s efforts to fragment and harass the protesters.

The European Union’s diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini on Friday said the developments were “extremely worrying”.

The day saw rolling arrests of leading pro-democracy voices, including lawmaker Cheng Chung-tai, who advocates greater political autonomy for Hong Kong, his Civic Passion party said in a Facebook post.

Police confirmed that a 35-year-old man surnamed Cheng had been held over “conspiracy to cause criminal damage” linked to the storming of the city’s parliament in July.

Pro-democracy campaigner Rick Hui — a district councillor — and former student leader Althea Suen were also arrested separately, while vocal independence campaigner Andy Chan was detained at Hong Kong’s airport.

More than 900 people have been arrested in connection with protests since June.

But that has failed to snuff out a leaderless movement, which says freedoms in the city, unique within China, are being eviscerated by Beijing.

Amnesty International decried Friday’s “ludicrous dawn swoops”, describing them as “scare tactics straight out of Beijing’s playbook”.

Police spokesperson John Tse denied the slew of arrests were timed specifically to defang the weekend’s protests as “totally false.”

Defy the ban?

Hong Kong’s crisis-hit government has refused to back down over the protests, which have by turns seen millions march, closed the airport and left city streets strewn with bricks and shrouded in tear gas.

What started as a pushback against a bill allowing extraditions to mainland China quickly morphed into wider calls for democracy and police accountability.

Bonnie Leung of the Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF), the organiser of Saturday’s banned rally, said it had “no option but to cancel the march”.

However, pockets of protesters have vowed to hold creative events at the scheduled time and place to sidestep the ban.

Those included a mass shopping trip, football match and impromptu religious gatherings in downtown Hong Kong, while a YouTuber with 800,000 followers called a fan meeting.

With a hardcore minority among the protesters, mainly young students, unlikely to heed the police ban, the weekend could be poised for renewed violent clashes.

Student protester Kelly, who wanted to be identified only by her first name, said the arrests would not cow the movement.

“The police think there are leaders behind the protests and this will stop us,” she said.

“We are our own leaders and we will keep coming out.”

On Sunday, the city saw some of its worst clashes, with running battles between a core group of radical protesters, armed with bricks and Molotov cocktails, and police wielding batons, rubber bullets and tear gas.

One officer fired a warning shot — believed to be the first live round used during the protests — as a mob with sticks set upon several policemen.

The violence has damaged Hong Kong’s reputation for stability and prosperity.

China has responded with a campaign of intimidation and state-media on Friday reported that fresh military anti-riot drills were held across the border in Shenzhen.

Businesses in the financial hub — from airline Cathay Pacific to the city’s metro operator — have also been squeezed by Beijing for harbouring apparent supporters of the pro-democracy movement.

Cathay sacked several staff over the protests and on Friday the airline went further, threatening to sack any staff who join a scheduled two-day strike next week.

Contract & Closing

Payment Depot operates on a month-to-month basis for billing so there are no long term contracts nor ETFs.

Bottom Line 

Overall, Payment Depot aims to be a card processor that all merchants can benefit from.

While some payment gateways or card processors don’t offer POS systems, Payment Depot does and have several devices that can help run your business smoothly.

If you tend to have larger transaction volumes, then consider Chase Merchant Services instead, a direct processor that provides more security.

For someone who’s new to the business world and don’t have that high of a transaction volume, then processors like Square can assist you in the journey.

Air India to stop using single-use plastic on flights

Debt-ridden Air India said Thursday it will stop using single-use plastic and replace the packaging with eco-friendly paper and wooden cutlery, as the government ramps up its “clean India” mission.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day speech in mid-August said eradicating single-use plastics was a key goal and called on people to take the “first big step” on October 2, the birthday of independence hero Mahatma Gandhi.

The national flag carrier said water bottles with 200ml capacity would be immediately replaced by larger 1,500ml containers.

Single-use plastics such as cutlery and pouches will then be removed from flights in two stages from October 2 and replaced by paper or wooden versions.

“In the first phase it will implement it in all flights of Air India Express and Alliance Air flights,” the airline’s spokesman Dhananjay Kumar told AFP.

The ban will be extended to include all Air India flights in the second phase, he added.

The government is expected to launch a national campaign in mid-September through three phases — an awareness drive, the collection of single-use plastics, and its recycling.

Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday also urged shoppers to replace plastic bags with cloth ones — which could last 10 years — to protect the environment.

India generates around 5.6 million tonnes of plastic waste annually, according to government figures.

The financial capital Mumbai last year banned the use of disposable plastic items such as bags, cutlery, cups and bottles under a certain size. Local authorities implemented fines for first-time offenders.

The bustling coastal city of 20 million people has long been awash with vast mountains of plastic rubbish, like many urban centres in India.

The capital New Delhi banned plastic bags in 2009 and later expanded it to all plastic packaging and single-use plastic.

But the ban is loosely enforced in both cities and single-use plastic is still being used.

“Single-use plastic has no place in 21st century and it is a welcome move from the government,” Mumbai-based environmental activist Afroz Shah told AFP.

“It is choking our marine life and environment but we need rigid implementation of the law.”
