John Hancock Tower
The John Hancock Tower is a 60-story, 790-foot (241 m) building in Boston and was completed in 1976. The structure was famous for its blue reflective glass windowpanes in a steel tower that detached from the building and crashed to the sidewalk hundreds of feet below. The failure of the glass was due to oscillations and repeated thermal stresses caused by the expansion and contraction of the air between the inner and outer glass panels which formed each window.

Rajang river is the longest river in Malaysia. To travel along the mighty river, powerful boats are needed to carry passengers and goods. As shown above, the express boat is loaded with all types of goods on top of the roof.
Since the express boat is the main mode of transport, most of the time the boat is overcrowded with passengers especially during peak season. However, the express boat is also the main attraction for tourists to travel to the interior of Sarawak.
It is a must for the boat operators to ensure that the boat is not overloaded either with goods or passengers to ensure any untoward incidents such as the one reported recently along the same river.

However, there seemed to be some syndicates profiting from the installed guardrail. Immediately after the installation of the guard rail, the syndicate will dismantle the metal to earn quick buck at the expense of public safety.
I am sure the respective agencies responsible to maintain the road must has spent so much money to keep on replacing the missing metal of the guard rail. Immediately after they had replaced the missing metal, the syndicate will carry out their unholy duty to steal the metal. This vicious cycle will continue until something is being done to rectify the situation.
In the following picture, the metal connecting the guard rail beam and guard rail pole are missing. These are the favourite items among the thieves because it it so easy for them to dismantle the metal assembly. In case there are runaway vehicles hitting the guard rail, the occupant of the vehicle will be in serious condition.
Now, the thieves are becoming more daring by removing the steel guard rail beam. It seemed that somebody has put temporary tape to warn road users about the dire condition of the guard rail. However, the tape will not save any life when an accident happen.
Thus, in the area of road safety, the task to provide a safer road is getting tougher since there are irresponsible citizens taking advantage of the lack of enforcement to apprehend those who are involved in trading metal collected from illegal source.
