Seah Jun Hao Reynard's curator insight, July 1, 2013 10:12 AM

I see that their hard work and perseverance has paid off. I think they have worked very hard and went through many obstacles to become successful. I wonder if everyone was like that, would becoming successful be 'successful'?

Jasmine Goh's curator insight, July 2, 2013 12:43 PM

After reading this article, I know that it is not easy to achieve success. The people in this article came from different backgrounds but they all faced setbacks in order to become successful. Although they struggled, these businessmen and businesswomen were able to achieve success through their determination as well as their willingness to sacrifice. Many of them took up several jobs to pay for their education fees. They were humble and had the courage to take risks. Through their hard work and effort, they eventually became successful. I think that if you want to be successful in life, you must have the determination to achieve your goal and believe that you are able to survive through the obstacles faced in the process. These people serve as my role model as they are local and they inspire me to work harder in everything I do. I wonder if they ever had the thought of giving up at the most difficult times in their lives.

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.

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.

And in british, angela ahrendts is one of just 3 females CEO running the country top company. She is a woman that is influence by sucess and she has factors that lead her to becoming sucessful.This proves that nothing in this world is impossible.

Mind-controlled devices reveal future possibilities

Mind-controlled devices reveal future possibilities | June Holiday Assignment by Zeke Chew | Scoop.it

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 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.

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. 

Tan Wenjia Polar Beary's curator insight, June 29, 2013 5:42 AM

Using see think wonder. The articles talkes about how Bin He ph D, and his teams of scientisits and engineers work on the device that allows human subjects to control the flight of small, remote-controlled helicopters using only their mind. This shows that we can turn our imaginations into possibilities. I feel that this article can influence younger generation to turn their imaginations into reality.
