Singapore said yesterday that it would pursue local firms found to be involved in starting forest fires in Sumatra, Indonesia, as Greenpeace said the blazes were on palm oil plantations owned by Indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean companies....
From what I have seen, Singapore's environment and lifestyle were highly affected due to the haze produced by the burning of dead crops in Sumatra, Indonesia. When Indonesia was being questioned about the origin of the haze problem by the government, the Indonesians pushed the blame to the companies from Singapore and other countries who invested in burning. I think Indonesia should not be so irresponsible in pushing the blame to the other countries. Instead, Indonesia should cooperate with countries like Singapore, hand in hand together, find out the culprits and solve the problem together. All the countries are diverse in a world, thus everyone should stay together especially in times of danger and problems. I wonder how the Singapore government will act if the situation is vice-versa.
After reading this article, I understand that they actually went through several rough sloops in their life. Despite the unknowns heading their way, they did not give up nor back off. The constant hard work and willing to learn from failures are one of the reasons why they were successful in various ways. With the right attitude, mind set and determination, I believe that everyone would be able to fulfil our dreams. I think that their stories would act as an inspiration to those who are struggling. I wonder if they would be willing to help others in future.
With right attitude, influence from the outside world and the effort one put in, one will develop a good character and thus, success could be achieved easily. Everyone should step out of our comfort zone and venture different routes and possibilities. One would to be affected in their daily performances be it, in work or school. This will make a huge impact in the future of one's life. I wonder why does people gives up easily or start to have negative mindsets when they face problems that do not have straightforward solutions. Isn't life a challenge?
When Gregory Wade left Research In Motion’s Asia Pacific headquarters here last fall, the logical thing to do might have been to pack up his family and head home to his native shore of British Columbia.
Instead, the eight-year expat joined an equity firm and continued preaching the economic miracle of Singapore, coaching Canadian firms looking to set up shop in the region as a vice-president for The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore.
“You will sense a vibe of growth, of energy, a sense of entrepreneurship and the desire and interest to create new and innovative products and services,” said Mr. Wade, who is now managing director of mobility at InflexionPoint Acquisition Corp. “I didn’t get that same vibe in Canada, regardless of locale.”
For a city-state with no resources, limited land and a small population, creating the explosive growth and development of the past half-century has meant running it like a corporation – using highly trained, highly paid leaders, inviting the world’s best and brightest to its work force with an open-door policy, and with a near-zero tolerance for dissent among the masses.
The result is a planned, modern economy with efficient public services, an educated population and a per-capita share of gross domestic product of more than $60,000 (U.S.), the highest in Southeast Asia. Singapore ranks No. 2 on the World Economic Forum’s global competitiveness rankings.
Today, as Singapore nears the 50th anniversary of its independence, the original economic miracle is slowing. Hit hard by the Asian financial crisis, the dot-com bust, the outbreak of SARS in 2003 and then global recession in 2008, the city-state is at an economic turning point.
Even though Singapore is a small country, we are still comparable to well developed countries such as Europe or the United States as we are economically stable. I think that Singapore is doing great even during difficult times because we have great leaders to lead us. However in the article it states that the government would help solve the crisis. Therefore, nothing is impossible, That makes me think that we are actually very honoured and lucky to have countries from all the over the world to help us. However, I think that Singapore should be independent and do something to help itself despite of all those limitations. I wonder what will happen if other countries did not step in to assist and help Singapore. Will Singapore be able to pull through the crisis ourselves?
After reading the article, I learn that there are many types of prejudice in the world like, sexism and ableism. Discrimination would become a serious and big issue in the future as people constantly make false assumptions and judgement of other people whom they view as 'not right'. I think being judgemental something that is being taught when we are very young. For example, parents would teach us, children like this kind of behaviour is not upright, newspaper always have articles on small issues like parents being “kiasu” and when teenagers do something wrong, other parents would be gossiping behind their backs, talking about how bad their parents are. All these are examples of being judgemental to one’s actions. Thus, everyone is living in this kind of judgmental world, trained to live in this kind of society. No one is perfect, and when people make mistakes, it’s common. Just correct your mistakes and life goes on. Even wrong doers have feelings and we should respect them and consider them and not discriminate them. I think inequality should be spread around the world so as to stop all the discriminating. I wonder if there's any way to spread kindness and accept for who they really are.
