Father and Son Business Owners Share Their Secrets to Success

Father and Son Business Owners Share Their Secrets to Success | Possibilities Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_Lim Jun Heng | Scoop.it
In time for Father's Day, successful father and son business owners share how they balance their personal and professional relationships.

Lim Jun Heng's insight:

I can see that the main reason to their success is their attitude. The son want to prove himself to his father and the remaining of the company thus he did his best and more, and to not bring personal feelings to their work and to concentrate during work and not be distracted. I think that teenagers nowadays should have the right attitude when working, and give their best regardless of what they are doing. I wonder when will Singaporean teenagers adopt this kind of thinking, and not complain incessantly

After reading this article, my thoughts are that there are many ways to be successful in doing something. The father in this article trusts his son and gave him the role of CEO in the company, this led to their success in their business. I also think that attitude plays an important role in their success, the son said "I want to be in my position because I'm the right person." this shows that he got the determination and drive towards success and therefore he is working very hard towards his goal.I learnt that success is possible with hard work and the right attitude. 

Hui Li's comment, June 30, 2013 1:23 AM
After reading this article I feel that having the right attitude to do something is very important it helps to strive towards the goal you want and not give up easily. The father entrusted his company to his son because his son showed his father that he can do it through his determination and work attitude. I believe that everyone should have this mindset to achieve something. I wonder if SIngaporean students will have this mindset and not give up easily?

Singapore threatens legal action against local firms blamed for smog from Sumatra

Singapore threatens legal action against local firms blamed for smog from Sumatra | Possibilities Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_Lim Jun Heng | 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....

Lim Jun Heng's insight:

The recent haze has caused many problems in our daily lives.  I can see the disruptions in our everyday activities; we can no longer do sports any go school which will prove to be vexing for both parents and the government. I think that local firms that assisted in causing the haze in Singapore should be dealt accordingly if their guilty of such acts. However if Indonesia is just shifting the blame, then their being too much. It is obvious that the forest fire began from Indonesia and this is not the first time. I wonder will Indonesia ever stop burning down trees.

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 the government of Singapore requested Indonesia to resolve the situation, indonesia blamed other countries' companies situated in indonesia for burning forest illegally and this includes Singapore. I feel that since everyone live in the same place called Earth, we should not be harming one another but taking good care of each other. We should also work together to solve any problem quickly. If this problem is not quickly solved, when will it be? How many more people have to go to the hospital until the haze problem can actually subsidies and turn better?

Samantha Chan's curator insight, June 30, 2013 4:23 AM

This is my insight using see-think-wonder thinking routines. The recent haze from the forest fires in Indonesia has affected the neighbouring countries people’s daily lives in many ways. Singapore reached a new haze reading record on Friday. Singapore government had spoke to Indonesia’s officials, but no action was taken and they blamed it on other countries. They are irresponsible for starting the fire and pushing blame to others. They should start finding out the culprit instead of not doing anything and pushing blame onto others.

Thinesh Kannan's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:11 AM

The recent haze problem in Singapore had caused many problems. A lot of people were affected and had to go to the hospital. When the government of Singapore requested Indonesia to resolve the situation, indonesia blamed the illegal forest burning. They even said that other countries were involved including Singapore. I feel that since everyone live in the same place called Earth, we should not be harming one another but taking good care of each other. We should also work together to solve any problem quickly. How many more people have to go to the hospital until the haze problem can actually subsidies and turn better? What if students get affected and cannot study properly?

How Tablets Have Changed Publishing

How Tablets Have Changed Publishing | Possibilities Conflict and Prejudice Assignment by_Lim Jun Heng | Scoop.it

...The company is finding that the most popular content for tablets depends on the title. Golf Digest sees great success with video. Generally speaking, long-form editorial content like actual stories, video and slideshows do well across the board because the tablet is a lean-back device, where consumers aren’t looking for short snippets of content like they are on a mobile phone, for example.

 

“If you look at the time of day with highest tablet usage it’s usually during prime time or on the weekends,” Reynolds said. “That’s why we are developing tablet-specific content to fit that different mindset. We’re not worried about tablet usage cannibalizing Web usage because Web, tablet and mobile, are all part of a complementary ecosystem.”

 

Reynold’s said that the biggest opportunity for Conde Nast in the tablet space is the amount of data is has on subscribers. It gives the publisher a look at the preferences that people have for content and advertising on specific devices and Conde Nast can optimize based on that.

Lim Jun Heng's insight:

This is my insight using see-think-wonder. I can tell from this article that the tablets are rapidly taking over our daily lives. People used to read newspapers can now read them on tablets. This not only saves paper but also money. Companies now have to find interesting ways to communicate to the public through the web. Technology is advancing so fast that I think in a few years time tablets will no longer be the latest craze and be taken over by something else. I wonder what if tablet is no longer this useful and something in the future take over the jobs of the current tablets? Will the companies have to rack their brains for new ideas?

Lee ZongHan's curator insight, June 26, 2013 9:38 AM

This is my insight using the see,think,wonder. This article is about a tablet devices like the iPad have been a game-changer for the publishing industry. The challenge with tablets is that they’re so new to the market. I can see that companies like '' Apple '' is trying to bring technology to a whole new level. I think that tablet will do well in this generation as the tablet is a lean-back device, where consumers aren’t looking for short snippets of content like they are on a mobile phone, for example. It is also portable, light and easy to bring around. I wonder that if there is no tablet invented, people can't do their work outside anywhere and have to bring a laptop along which is more troublesome. In my conclusion, tablets have change the world's techonology.

Prejudice Comes From a Basic Human Need and Way of Thinking

People who are prejudiced feel a much stronger need to make quick and firm judgments and decisions in order to reduce ambiguity. “Of course, everyone has to make decisions, but some people really hate uncertainty and therefore quickly rely on the most obvious information, often the first information they come across, to reduce it” Roets says. That’s also why they favor authorities and social norms which make it easier to make decisions. Then, once they’ve made up their mind, they stick to it. “If you provide information that contradicts their decision, they just ignore it.”

Lim Jun Heng's insight:

I can see from this article that there is no way to change the fundamental way of the human mind. I think that humans should try their best to not categories others into groups , even if they do they should not be so quick to judge , as the saying goes “do not judge a book by its cover” and instead inquire and observe more before making negative justification towards that group . This is most likely the cause of racism, where because of one person; the whole race is despised and thought ill off, when the rest are fine and easy to get along with. I wonder when will humans ever bond as one and no longer be biased towards anything.

Lim Jun Heng's insight:

All I can see from this article is the flaws in human beings. Are humans of different races not able to live together in peace? I think people should not be so prejudiced against people from other races . after all we are all humans. Is colour and culture really that important? What set people different from each other is not race , humans should not be so quick to judge others, after all we are all living together and none seek for conflict. Shouldn’t humans be more bonded to face crisis likes natural hazards and global warming ? not fighting amongst ourselves for trivial reasons . I wonder will racism ever be removed from the face of earth .

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.
