Leonard Wagnerboy's insight:

This is my insight using one of the thinking methods. As stated in the article, a large majority of women are stuck in lower-end, lower-pay jobs in vulenrable, informal and insecure sectors with little social protection.This all come down to education. In their early lifes, woman should have gone through a proper education. This could allow them to have more skills and can have a proper job in the future. I think that females should also be given a chance to have a proper job, especially females who have a family to support. There might be females that are able to do a better job than the males in that particular job. Does gender really matters? Give ur suggestions !

Singapore threatens legal action against local firms blamed for smog from Sumatra | Possibilities, Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_ Leonard Teo June Holiday Assignment | Scoop.it
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....
Leonard Wagnerboy's insight:

The recent haze problem in Singapore had caused many problems. I witnessed many elderly's health being affected and needed to visit the hospital.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. I was so pissed. PISSED OFF at the indonesia government.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 faced by us.

After reading this article,it reminds me of the recent haze problem in Singapore.I have witnessed the inconvinience of many people,like me as an example, my co-cirriculur activities had to be canceled due to the haze and it has definitely spoiled my holidays.I was shocked and disappointed at the way the Indonesia government handle this particular incident.They tried to push the blame back to us, Singapores' companies,when they were being questioned.This haze has affected most of the countries in ASEAN, especially Malaysia,and it is very unfair for them when the Indonesia government tried to push the blame down to them.We all,being part of ASEAN,should stand together and help one another in times of need.This makes me wonder how the Indonesian government would react if we were the cause of the haze.

Case Study: Sri Lanka - Conflict and Harmony in Multi-Ethnic Societies - Resource Guides at National Library, Singapore

Case Study: Sri Lanka - Conflict and Harmony in Multi-Ethnic Societies - Resource Guides at National Library, Singapore | Possibilities, Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_ Leonard Teo June Holiday Assignment | Scoop.it
This LibGuide explores the following themes: 1. causes and effects of conflict in a multi-ethnic society (case studies of Northern Ireland and Sri Lanka and 2. challenges in resolving ethnic conflicts.
Leonard Wagnerboy's insight:

The following article is used by the routine See-Think-Wonder thinking routine.The fight lasted for more than a hundred years and many innocent lives were lost in the process. I think that all of these cruelties will not happen if the people’s mind-sets are changed. Just because people feel that they are from different races and thus are different from others, they start to compete and fight against each other. It would be good if humans can live without fighting over each other’s races one day.

From this article I can see that through the hundred years of conflict there were many riots between the Tamil Tigers and the Sinhalese. Due to the riots there was bloodshed. If the Sinhalese and the Tamils had sorted out their problems in the first there would not have any misunderstanding in the first place. Many innocent lives have been lost in the process due this conflict. However I think that the Tamil Tigers are doing the right thing in fighting for their freedom. However I think they should use less lethal ways in doing so. I wonder why the conflict lasted for such a long period of time.

Coven Chong Weng's curator insight, July 5, 2013 7:21 AM

From this article, i know that the Tamil Tigers and also the Sinhalese are always fight and many people had died in the process. I think that if only people would think in another way, all this things would have not happened. I wonder why there is racism in this world, it would be great if humans would not fight over their race as there will not so much war involving races .

Teoh Jun Fang's curator insight, July 5, 2013 10:13 AM

(See-Think-Wonder) From this article, I can see that the conflicts between the two races, Tamil and sinhala, is due to the difference in their language and culture. I think that it does not matter what race you are, as long as you live in the same country as the others, you are all together as one. Race is just a type of religion and everyone should learn to accept one another from different races and not dicriminate them. We should all show respect to their religion. Since the Tamil and Sinhala live in the same country, they should accept one another and not treat each other like enemies. I wonder if  there are no conflicts between the two races, how well-developed would Sri Lanka be now?

Entitlement Is The Way To Failure - Business 2 Community

Entitlement Is The Way To Failure - Business 2 Community | Possibilities, Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_ Leonard Teo June Holiday Assignment | Scoop.it
Leonard Wagnerboy's insight:

From this article, I can see that people who feel that the world owes him or have a sense of entitlement often lead to their astray. Apparently people are impatient and after seeing how others through sweat and sacrifice earn a lot of money via the internet especially, people build false hopes and dreams thinking they can do it too. But, ultimately not realizing that it takes more than luck and intellect. In order to solve this problem, we must have the mindset that thinks" nobody owes me a living". We should go out and fight for what we want, we should fight with integrity and respect.We should work hard for what we want !

After reading this article, i have learnt that people who thinks that they are born given with talents or feel as if someone or something owes them their entitilement often lead themselves to their own astray.From this article i can tell that people are often thinking that the success of some people are easy to get,therefore having the mindset that they can do it too without any hardwork or effort.Being successful online is especially the easiest to mislead people to have a false impression on the meaning of success.People think that the successful people online gets their result in a blink of an eye but they do not realise that the success come in years and years of hardwork and determination.People now should have the mindset of "success do not knock on your door,you have to find it yourself" and " no one owes you a living" this mindset will hopefully awake those people who are still asleep and wondering why are they not successful when they did not put in effort.We should fight for what we want and to earn the respect from other successful people. As the saying goes, Earned Not Given.

Racism is a white man's 'invention': Indians may be bigoted, prejudiced and intolerant, but racist? Let's hold our horses

Racism is a white man's 'invention': Indians may be bigoted, prejudiced and intolerant, but racist? Let's hold our horses | Possibilities, Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_ Leonard Teo June Holiday Assignment | Scoop.it
Race is a tricky term. We might be bigoted, prejudiced and illiberal. We are casteist, yes, and we divide ourselves on the basis of region and religion, but racist? I would hold my horses. This is a matter for debate.
Leonard Wagnerboy's insight:

From this article, I can see that racism is the most common in India.Apparently, Indians are not comfortable with having foreigners as neighbours. Prejudice or racism in this case, is a serious and common problem today. I find it very unfair for a person to be looked down on or even criticised just because of their skin colour. Racism can lead to violence as the conflict between two races are very common today.I feel that even though there may be hundreds and thousands of different type of races, humanity eventually still shares the same colour of blood. So why should humans destroy themselves? Racism is strongly a painful experience, so please stop it.

From this article,i can see that racism is a common thing in India,have the fact that a large percentage of them dislike having a neighbour of different race or colour.Prejudices and racism is said to be common in India,but i believe such prejudices in India is in a different form than the prejudices occuring in the western countries.The Indians are said to be prejudices who act and dress against the social norms rather than those with significant,different in race or religion.Whereas in Western countries,people are mostly prejudices towards people of different races or religion.This leads to some of the people delibrately changing the way they look and carry themselves to fit into the socials norms and avoid negative criticism or from being outcasted.I believe that racism should not exist as it indirectly surpresses personal thoughts and creativity.I strongly agree that everyone in this world should be given the freedom to express themseleves and be respected for they are.I wonder when will racism stop.

Seah Jun Hao Reynard's curator insight, July 1, 2013 10:39 AM

I can see that both parties of Indians and Britons are both racists. I think that we should not be racist to anyone no matter what race or colour they are. I wonder what could one gain by being racist to someone who is the same as him, a human.
