Most advanced school plot operation dismantled


The "cheating operations" were "highly sophisticated", Deputy Public Prosecutor Vadivalagan Shanmuga said, Channel NewsAsia reports.

The students snuck in mobile phones and Bluetooth devices, and wore skin-coloured earphones during their exams.

Tan Jia Yan took the exams as a private candidate and FaceTimed questions to accomplices who then rang students and read answers to them, prosecutors say.

Poh Yuan Nie is alleged to have received from a Chinese national S$8,000 (£4,260; $6,100) as deposit and S$1,000 for every student referred to the Zeus Education Centre.

The plot was uncovered after an invigilator noticed unusual sounds coming from one of the students involved, prosecutors said.

Amazon Employees Pee into Bottles 馃樀

The Amazon warehouse in question measures 700,000 square feet, and some of the 1,200 workers face a 10-minute, quarter-mile walk to reach the two toilets on the ground floor of the four-story building.

Undercover investigator James Bloodworth said in his book “Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain“

He said the warehouse in Rugeley, Staffordshire, is like a prison, with airport-style security ­scanners where workers are checked and patted down in case they steal. Rugeley is 125 miles northwest of London.

“For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs.”

Bloodworth, who worked 10-hour shifts as a picker selecting goods for dispatch, walked 10 miles a day at Amazon while doing research for his book.
