After her husband, a cook, died in 1971, she became a hawker to support her eight children, who were between seven and 15 then.

Her story of resilience is celebrated by Mr Sinma DaShow, 39, in the last

 

chapter of his book, Not For Sale: Singapore's Remaining Heritage Street Food Vendors, which focuses on 10 women hawkers. The book's launch is part of this year's Singapore HeritageFest.

 

Partially funded by the National Heritage Board, the book, which includes black-and-white photographs, took 21/2 years to produce. Co-authored by Singapore-based photographer Jim Orca, 39, it is being sold for $88 on website

How Is Social Media Used In Schools? Statistics, Facts & Figures [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | news | Scoop.it

Did you know that 96 percent of students with internet access report using social networking technologies, and that three in five (59 percent) use these tools to talk about educational topics online?

Social media has revolutionised many industries, but it’s perhaps its impact on the classroom, and the education system as a whole, that is the most striking. Whether it’s through the use of private social groups, Facebook Pages, classroom Twitter profiles or blogs, school after school has embraced social networking, with some studies showing that, used correctly, these channels can have a positive impact on grades.

This infographic from Best Masters In Education takes a closer look at the use of social media in schools.

Addicted to ... Food?

Addicted to ... Food? | news | Scoop.it

A study of 12 men found that glycemic load—distinct from calories or sweetness—can alter brain function and promote overeating. Is there such a thing as food addiction? A study using brain imaging suggests that high-glycemic foods may trigger the same brain mechanism as substance abuse.

The benefit of the diets which reduce sugar and carbohydrates such as Glycemic Index, Atkins, South Beach, Belly Fat Cure are in part due to the reduced sugar effect on the brain.

From the article: 

This study narrows the difference to one variable only—the glycemic load—and indicates that this factor, distinct from calories or sweetness, can alter brain function and promote overeating. “These findings suggest that limiting high-glycemic index carbohydrates like white bread and potatoes could help obese individuals reduce cravings and control the urge to overeat,

Street Photography Singapore - Red Light District to Orchard Road Lah | Nate

Street Photography Singapore - Red Light District to Orchard Road Lah | Nate | news | Scoop.it

 

Photos from the mean streets of Singpore - an incredible location for street photography. Speaking of incredible - all of the photos are taken with my Fuji X Pro 1, and the 18mm lens - the only lens and only digital camera I have, as I travel around the world. I've chosen to shoot all the Singapore street photography in black and white. The streets of Singapore are more colourful than most, but I feel a strong connection with black and white images. Or maybe I'm just yet another poor tormented artist? ;) Maybe you could decide for yourself...
