Tan Wenjia Polar Beary's insight:

From this article, i can say that everything is about attitude and the effect that you put in. People around u is also another factor. Being around people who have long term being exposed to negative information, they tend to be more negative when they had choices.One tend to be affected in their daily performance like at work or in school.This will make a strong impact towards the future of this person's life. You must have a postitive attitude in order to be confident so that you can be sucessful in life.

I can see that when people are awlays being exposed to negative thoughts and information, they tend to make bad choices due to their negative thoughts, affecting the way he or she lead their life. This cause people to feel demoralised , which will also affect the way they think.Thus, it is important to think positive, and see the brighter side of life. This will allow people to strive towards their goal, and have their desired outcome. I think attitude plays a important role in the way we think. i wonder why do people not think the positive side of life.

Jaslyn Si Jia's curator insight, July 4, 2013 5:59 AM

After reading this article, I realized that positive attitude is needed to determine the life we're living in and also the possibilities that we can achieve. Many people may be affected in their life due to the negative thoughts and attitude that they have, if they had positive attitude in all the things they do, they would live a better life and discover things that they might have never discovered before. These positive attitude and thoughts leads to finding even more possibilities and lead us to the right path onto our future.

Coven Chong Weng's curator insight, July 5, 2013 7:09 AM

From this article, i realise that with the right attitude, we can come up with all different kind of outcome in some situations. If your attitude is positive for everything, everything might just turn out the way that you want it. However if you have a negative attitude, things will not go the way you want it to and it might get even worse. Thus, i wonder why some people dont think with a positive attitude.

Bin He, Ph.D., leads a team of scientists and engineers who are working on a device that allows human subjects to control the flight of small, remote-controlled helicopters using only their minds. The researchers believe this technology has the potential to restore mobility and independence to individuals suffering from neuromuscular disorders and paralysis, and could enhance the natural motor functions of pilots, surgeons and ordinary citizens.

I can see from the Article that Bin He, Ph.D has led a team of scientists and engineers working on a device that allows human subjects to control the flight of small, remote-controlled helicopters using only their minds. 

I think That is a Pro and Con Situation, this is helpful to those People who are suffering from neuromuscular disorders and paralysis,and could enhance the natural motor functions of pilots, surgeons and ordinary citizens. But for those who are not disabled will tend to use this frequenly and hence it may lead them to idle.

I wonder If we use this to Much of it, it will tend to relay on the device and neglect or health. 

leung tak poon's comment, June 28, 2013 6:25 AM
I could refer form the article above that there are various types of way to improve our daily life using the capabilities of technology. It mention about this group of scientists and engineers working on a experiment that allows humans to control certain type of device by just using their minds without the movement of their physical body. By the end of this article , I hope that this invention could be used in the future to help those who are physically incapable to do something that they always wanted to.
Shameerza's curator insight, June 28, 2013 6:32 AM

From this article, i can see that Bin He, Ph.D, leads a team of scientists and engineers who are working on a device that allows human to control it by mind. I think that this invention is really fascinating and useful. By planting electrodes in the brain, by a single thought, it allows the beholder to control and move things. I wonder if this is powerful enough to lift heavy objects. In conclusion, this great invention, may lead into a greater and improved human technology in which will give us the power to levitate, move and control objects with only the power of a thought without using strength.

I see that this article talks about conflict and harmony in Multi-ethnic societies. The city announced it would be the last bulletin to feature English. The city,complying with directives advised the residents that English news would have to go. i think that this article is related to conflict and harmony in multi ethinic societies as english is used in most of the countries to communicate with people from different countries to communicate with one another. I wonder what will others think when they see the article.

From this news, i can see that Burberry CEO and Indiana native, Angela Ahrendts, is now the highest paid executive in Britian. In Britain, Ahrendts is one of just three females CEOs running the country’s top companies. I think that they are very capable. It is not an easy tasked to run the company. I believe that this is a very good example as she is very successful. Those that want to be like her can really learn from her.

Seetoh Jun Hao Jonathan's curator insight, June 26, 2013 11:35 PM

Burberry CEO and Indiana native Angela Ahrendts, is now the highest-paid executive in Britain, she is really capable as she is able to reach such a high position. In Britain, Ahrendts is one of just three female CEOs running the country’s many top companies. This shows us how successful she is. I wonder how she managed to reach that position because it is not an easy task. She is a good role model and i think that we should all learn from her to become successful in life.

Shameerza's curator insight, June 28, 2013 6:42 AM

This article tells me that Burberry CEO and Indiana native, Angela Ahrendts, is now the highest-paid executive in Britain. I think that see is a really smart and capable person in reaching such a high position in the company. In Britain, Ahrendts is one of just three female CEOs running the country’s top companies. This shows that she is one of the few most successful female in the country as she managed to reach that position. I think in reaching that position is hard and it requires lot of intelligence and hardwork. I wonder how she managed to excell and become one of the highest paid exec in Britain. I also wonder how many years does it takes to reach that such position and what are the difficulties she faced. In conclusion, i can say that everything is possible, it is just a matter whether want it or not, and how do you want to have it. She is one of the few role models and everyone should look up to her and also maybe to follow her steps. She is a really successful woman in which she is very smart, intelligent and capable. These few qualities in which everyone should have into becoming successful just like her.

Tan Wenjia Polar Beary's insight:

Think and wonder:
From this article i can tell that indians is the second most racist country. As they would not want to live next to a neighbour of a different race. Something that the Indians are not comfortable with. i feel that the racism should stop because we are all humans, blood flows in everyone of us. We should accept one another regardless of race, language or even skin colours. The thing that really matter is how we treat one another. i wonder why is it so difficult for people to accept each other for who they really are?

Teo J-lyn's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:31 AM

India is the world's second-most racist country after Jordan. I think that people should be more accepting towards other races,their languages as well as their religion and not be prejudice. It do not matter what colour we are, as we are all humans, and have blood flowing in us. I wonder if racism will continue and is the government going to do anything about it . Racism had also become a serious issue.

Seamus Ong's curator insight, July 5, 2013 8:55 AM

This is my insight using the see-think-wonder routine. From this article I can see that people are being judged by the colour of their skin, accent and other stuff. I see that most races are being judged based on what the minority from the race does like how some act or talk in public and based on that, other racial groups are under the impression that all people of that certain race is like that and they thus sterotype or generalise everyone belonging to that race. this article makes me think that racism is a big problem and one of the main causes of conflict in multienthnic societies like racial riots. I wonder if racism will ever stop.

Asha Begum's curator insight, July 6, 5:20 AM

Treating the Indians in this way is not right. White men should change their perception of Indian people. Racism should stop because it is not fair to be prejudiced.
