Finberg’s accusers all have relatively similar stories. He would act aggressive with them, feed them alcohol at shows, make wild promises about how their bands could open for Nightwish, and when the women rejected him, he would offer non-stop abuse via text messaging, and one woman even claimed he tried to call her job and tell them that they are working with a terrible person. Beyond the abuse, MetalSucks’ expose also highlighted various shady business

ActiveSG Users Who Fail To Show Up For 3 Bookings Per Month Will Be Suspended For 2 Weeks

For all gym rats and fitness junkies out there, perhaps one of the hardest things to endure during ‘Circuit Breaker’ was not being able to visit the gym.

This changed after Phase 2 started, when ActiveSG could reopen their gym and pool facilities. Due to safety measures, users have to book time slots to use the facilities.


Now, ActiveSG is implementing stricter protocol for these bookings. They’ll suspend users  if they’re a no-show after booking these slots.

ActiveSG implements stricter booking policies for users

When ActiveSG facilities reopened in Phase 2, time bookings were enforced to avoid crowding and ensure safe distancing.

After 3 months, they are now implementing stricter booking policies.

Busbud allows people to find and book intercity bus tickets in more than 80 countries around the world.

A “growth” fund bankrolled by Canada’s biggest financial institutions has made its first investment in Quebec by participating in a $15-million round of funding for Montreal-based bus travel booking website Busbud Inc.

The Canadian Business Growth Fund, as well as Quebec government-owned Investissement Québec, led a Series C equity financing that was announced on Tuesday for Busbud, which was founded in 2011 and allows people to find and book intercity bus tickets in more than 80 countries around the world.

ActiveSG booking policy gets stricter, Sport News & Top Stories

Noble Horvath

ActiveSG members will face temporary suspension of their memberships from tomorrow if they flout the rules laid out in the national sports movement’s amended booking policy.

Users who do not turn up for three bookings in a month at ActiveSG gyms and swimming pools will have their memberships suspended for two weeks, during which they will not be allowed to book any of ActiveSG’s facilities.

They will be notified via e-mail should their account be suspended.

ActiveSG said it had observed over the past three months that more than 15 per cent of users who pre-booked their slots did not turn up during their allocated time slot.

Members have been required to book slots for ActiveSG facilities – with the exception of stadiums – online since June 19, when sports venues were reopened in phase two of the post-circuit breaker period. The booking policy changes will also allow members to

It’s worth booking travel direct: a lesson from the Covid crisis | Consumer rights

Noble Horvath

Last January we used our local Flight Centre travel agent to book what we hoped would be the holiday of a lifetime – a £5,790 15-day cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam in May.

Of course this didn’t happen and, at the end of March, Flight Centre informed us the trip was cancelled. We requested a refund, and while we were sympathetic to the difficulties caused by Covid-19, and expected to wait some time, this is still dragging on.

We were first told the money would be processed and sent back to our local Flight Centre by 31 July. On 11 August the tour operator confirmed it had sent the money to the agent but despite several promises and repeated calls, we are no closer to being refunded.
