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.
From this article, I see that the ethnic conflict between the Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka has a history spanning more than 100 years. I find it very shocking as their conflict last for more than a century. Since the both races live in Sri Lanka, I think that they should live together harmorniously and stop the ethnic conflict between them.I also strongly believe that they should be more accepting towards each other races.I wonder when this conflict will end and when both races will start living together harmorniously.
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.
Daily Mail Racism is a white man's invention: Indians may be bigoted, prejudiced and ... Daily Mail This is what the piece said: "Though rarely racist, Britons are exceptionally hostile to immigration - more so than Germans, French or the Dutch.
From this article, I can see that Indians are not comfortable in having neighbours who are foreigners and that a staggering 43 per cent of Indians say that they wouldn't want to live next to a neighbour of a different race. I think that they should be more accepting towards other races and not be prejudice. After reading this article, my thoughts are that we are all human beings and we should accept one another regardless of race and differences.We should be more thoughtful about other peoples' feelings.I wonder if people will start accepting one another in the near future and whether this problem on racism can be solved.
Gardens by the Bay is the newest addition to Singapore's green space innovations, making this architecturally brilliant metropolis truly a “City in a Garden.”
Still a work in progress, Gardens by the Bay was named the World Building of the Year at the World Architecture Festival 2012. The use of innovative energy saving technologies is a noteworthy element of this unique project.

From this article, I can see that Singapore's architectural design of the Gardens by the Bay has been known and that people find it very innovative and fascinating. It was named the World Building of the Year in the year 2012. I think that the Gardens by the Bay is a very good idea as it can attract tourists and draw international attention.It also make Singapore known to more countries.I wonder if the people in the other countries will find it fascinating and a joy to see this architectural innovation.
From this article, I can tell that attitude plays an important role in building up your character. Attitude can change what you have achieved, and what you will acheive. I feel that as long as we have a positive mindset, positive attitude and we work hard towards our goal, we can achieve it. Having a good attitude dosen't mean that we should just be positive in life, we should try to step out of our comfort zone and venture into new routes to success. Anything is possible. I wonder if friends or family members have any impact towards a person's attitude?
