crystal chin jing's insight:

After looking through this slideshare about the global attractiveness of Singapore, i can see that singapore is  very efficent. in addition, i can see that singapore demostrate coordination, collaboraion and cooperation. Singapore is connected by modern telecommunications and as being economically, socially and politically interdepent. I wonder how singapore overcome such obstacle and suceed in becoming as a global community.

After browsing through the slideshare about Singapore, I learnt that Singapore stands in the 3rd place as a destination city by more than 107 million people of the global workforce in 2011. It stands as the 7th most popular country to settle down and work in 2011. Singapore have a strong economy and it is the working capital of Southeast Asia. I think that Singapore is one of the most successful and safest countries in the world which is the reason why many foreigners prefer to migrate over and settle down here. Despite being an extremely small country, Singapore rose over the years to become so renowned by everyone in the world at this point in time.

From this article I can see that Singapore is ranked 3rd as a destination city by more than 107 million people of the global workforce in 2011 and it is the 7th most popular country to settle down and work in 2011. Singapore has one of the best economies in Asia. Hence it is a more preferable workforce compared to other countries. I think that we should appreciate that we have such a good economy. I wonder what we as Singaporeans can do to keep us the good work done by the people of Singapore today.

I wonder what will the challenges that Singapore face next time .

One third of whites claim they are victims of racism | Possibilities and Conflict and Prejudice_Crystal chin jing | Scoop.it

crystal chin jing's insight:

see, think, wonder

The people are racially prejudice. they have unfavourable or discriminatory attitude or belief toward someone else or another group of people primarily on the basis of skin color or ethnicity. if racial prejudice is not reduces, iti could lead to racism , and if racism is not addressed , it could lead to more prejudice. racial prejudice can harm not only the victims , but also larger society, and indirectly the peolple who are engaing in the acts.

I can see from this article that even in a mostly white dominated country like Britain, conflicts still come about as it is a multi-ethnic society that contains different races and religion. It also shows that all races are vulnerable to conflicts and racism, and that it happens to countries all over the world. I wonder is there any methods or ways to stop this and promote harmony instead

Realizing Your Dreams and Goals

Realizing our dreams and accomplishing our goals can happen much faster if we employ these 3 important keys.

crystal chin jing's insight:

As the saying goes, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing", we need to work hard to achieve our goals rather than procrastinating. From this article, i learnt that one must have resilience to overcome all obstacles and work towards their goals. i wonder are there any other ways to achieve ones goal.

Poon Ying Ying's curator insight, July 2, 2013 7:29 AM

Using the See-Think-Wonder route, i can see that in order to achieve our goals and turn our dreams into reality, we can not just sit at around and think or talk about it. A miracle will not happen just by wishing for it to happen, however we should work hard towards our goals and consistently close up the gap between a dream and reality. We should be determined about attaining our goals and have passion to be willing to work hard. To achieve our goals and dreams, we have to take 3 important moves. First, we have to be clear what define our dreams and goals. Take note of what actions have to be taken and write down clearly to always remind and motivate yourself. Secondly, you have to start taking actions. Now that you are clear about the steps to take, you will have to act them out. Work towards the right direction and make every act of yours productive. Lastly, you will have to draw the distance of your dream closer to you.


I think that it is complicated to think about doing all these to achieve our goals, but once we start to work towards our dreams, it will be much simple. Also i think it is not easy to work towards our dreams, but it is rather easy talking about acting it out and end up procrastinating, which is commonly seen. Therefore we all will need lots of determination and passion in order to take action. I feel that it is true about noting down our goals and steps to take, that is a reminder and motivation for us.


However i wonder how long will it take on average to reach our goals, if it require a very long period of time, how will people manage to persevere on? Will people get thoughts of giving up on the way towards their dreams because they are too tired pushing themselves to the limit? And how will they usually reject all the negatives thought and continue working hard?

Jasmine Goh's curator insight, July 2, 2013 1:12 PM

This article has clarified the factors leading to the realization of reaching possibilities. There are many factors that add up to achieving our dreams and goals. Some of which are being positive, willing to sacrifice and having the determination to succeed. However, after reading this article, there more more important aspects that help us realize our goals. First, we have to be clear of what we want to do. We have to know what exactly we want to accomplish, and involve our feelings in it so that we will be able to experience it on an emotional level. Secondly, we have to make adjustments and be flexible to go in the correct direction of being successful. Lastly, we have to change our perspective of attracting our dreams to us, and visualize ourselves in the future. These factors have really changed my mindset and influenced me to pursue my dreams.

Jaslyn Si Jia's curator insight, July 4, 2013 6:12 AM

After reading the article, I see that dreaming wouldn't help in achieving our goals and dreams but instead hard work does. In order to achieve our desired goals, we should work hard for it, for if no work is done, goals that we desire to get may be hard to come by. The article which shows techniques in achieving our desires are really helpful and I do hope that people actually uses these few techniques to actually work towards drawing their goals towards themselves. I wonder if people who use these techniques actually had the patience and perseverance (if it takes a long time to achieve the goal) to work towards their long awaited goals.

The Depressing Truth About Kids And Fat Prejudice

The Depressing Truth About Kids And Fat Prejudice | Possibilities and Conflict and Prejudice_Crystal chin jing | Scoop.it
Fat prejudice isn't limited to the adults leading Abercrombie & Fitch and the tabloid industry. According to a new study out of the University of Leeds, children as young as four have internalized the idea that overweight means bad.
crystal chin jing's insight:

see, think, wonder

i can see that fat people are being discriminated in this articles. some of the people thin that fat people is imbued with disease, indulgence,poverty, disregard for personal dignity and sloppiness. Personally, i feel that it doesn't mean the fat individual has faulty judgement or inferior leadership skills. i wonder what cana the society do to alleviate the problems of prejudices

From this article, i can tell people all over the world have been sensitive about being obese. They are constantly worrying about how they look, how people will see them, how they dress etc. I believe many girls fear about getting judged and no doubt, people say we all live in a judgmental society. I felt ridiculous when a kid as young as 4 have the idea that being overweight means bad. Your appearance does not determine your personality and your attitude. It isn't all about being 'skinny' and 'in shape' as "Nobody's Perfect". I realized that people all over the globe has been trying to chase perfection. I strongly feel that they should stop and be comfortable with the way they look. I wonder what is keeping people from being satisfied with their body weight/ size. Will people continue to have that idea about being obese?
Kyle Tan's curator insight, July 1, 2013 9:28 AM

In this article, I can see that even kids are thinking that being fat is bad. This is due to many influences arround them like social media, influence from family and friends. I think that this prejudice should stop. People who are overweight are people too, they have feelings and they will feel hurt if someone were to tell them that being fat is bad. I wonder what will happen if this prejudice goes on.

Jaslyn Si Jia's curator insight, July 4, 2013 5:46 AM

From this article, I realized that not only adults but even young children of 4 to 7 years old are judging that being overweight is bad and that these overweight people are less likely to achieve a result in life, like, winning races etc., and that most children won't accept the friendship between themselves and a overweight child. Not only will prejudice act on others, but it will also act on themselves via the surrounding things that influences them. I feel that everyone shouldn't judge overweight people in the way most people are doing it, but instead they should accept these overweight people and not judge their appearance but their character. I wonder why people judge overweight people in this way and whether there are any plans to help people around the world to understand and stop these unfair judgments.
