Singapore threatens legal action against local firms blamed for smog from Sumatra | Possibilities, Conflict & Prejudice (Ishbir) | 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....

Muhammad Ishbir Azhad's insight:

Due to the haze, all activities need to be canceled. The Singapore government has talk to the Indonesian officials but instead, they acted like nothing had happened and pushed the blame on other companies. We should not blame other countries and also should not harm them. Keeping our earth clean and peace among countries are very important.This should not happen again in the near future

Jun Liang's curator insight, June 30, 2013 4:17 AM

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.

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?

Muhammad Ishbir Azhad's insight:

Adolf was very poor when he was young. Through his hardwork, Adidas, his company has become the worlds second biggest manufacturing company. I feel that Adolph is very innovative as he wanted to make new shoes. He is also forward looking. That is why, through hard work and determination, nothing is impossible.

Thinesh Kannan's curator insight, July 1, 2013 6:05 AM

I can see that Adolf Dassler, the founder of Adidas, was from a poor family and worked really hard because of his passion. His father worked in a shoe factory and mother ran a laundry service. He has been trained as a cobbler from a very early age and he loved experimenting with innovative designs and ideas. He split up with his brother after working in a company together. I wonder why he would split with his brother as they had been working together for so long.

Gautam's curator insight, July 2, 2013 9:08 AM

I think that Adolf Hassler worked really hard because of his passion of shoes and sportswear. It also tells me that you do not need to be rich to be a founder of a major sportswear company.

Evelynkoh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 11:34 AM

Since young , i have believed in a saying that everyone born has a mission to accomplish and that it'll only be accomplished when you work hard for it. Its like a mission and that no matter where or when are you born , the mission will also have to be accomplished before you return to where you came from. Some say , passion , faith and hope is what pushes people on to step up and continue what they're doing and fighting for. You'll have to set a goal for yourself and work hard to accomplish it , find motivations along the way and encourage yourself to keep on going as you may never know what might happen next , you might be just a few steps to your dream, Nothing is impossible as long as you try, Learn from your mistakes and never make them again , learn from it and change along the way , make it better and when time comes , you'll never know how all these bits and pieces in life has helped you gained so much experience and memories that will last a lifetime. Work for your dream , you'll definitely succeed someday in the future, Never give up no matter how hard the road is.

From this article, it cleary shows that through hard work and determintion, dreams can be achieved. There will surely be more exciting inventions in the future.

Melissa Tan's curator insight, June 30, 2013 6:12 AM

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. 3D printing was initially used for prototyping in aerospace and medical industries. It was just an expensive idea people thought of. Eventually after becoming a more mainstream consumer product, it became more affordable and popular. Today because of the realization of this 3D printing becoming successful, this expensive idea has become possible. Anything is possible if we work towards it.

Ming Ting's comment, June 30, 2013 10:22 AM
From this article, I learned that 3D printing is a technology that was initially used for prototyping in aerospace and medical industries. While it has been around for a while, it is finally finding its way into more mainstream consumer products as, just like computers, it has become more affordable and its functionality is improving tremendously. I think that it is really amazing and wonderful that technology has already reached such a high stage.

Off and Running: 101-Year-Old Fauja Singh is The World's Oldest Marathon Runner

Off and Running: 101-Year-Old Fauja Singh is The World's Oldest Marathon Runner | Possibilities, Conflict & Prejudice (Ishbir) | Scoop.it
In 2011, Fauja Singh became the first centenarian to complete a full marathon by finishing the Toronto’s Waterfront Marathon. His dedication, determination and passion for running took him to the pinnacle of success and fame.

Via Amanda Simmons
Muhammad Ishbir Azhad's insight:

This is very inspiring as doesn't mean you are old, you can't do anything. This shows that dreams do come true. It tells us to continue what we believe in. For a 101 year old man to complete a marathon is unbelievable but Fauja Singh did the unthinkable. So, dont ever give up and pursue your dreams.

Samantha Chan's curator insight, June 30, 2013 3:36 AM

This is my insight using see-think-wonder thinking routines. Although Fauja Singh is 101 years old, he is very passionate to running and runs marathons again and again. Teenagers and adults do not even like to run several kilometers, yet he is able to run 42km. He is a good role model for everyone and encourages elderly across the world to run and stay fit. He even did not keep the money he earned from running marathons, but donates it to charity.

RuiHan Chia's curator insight, June 30, 2013 9:48 AM

I have never seen or knew any century year old people being a marathon runner. It is just unbelievable. This Indian born British centenarian marathon runner started his first race in 2000 in London and continued participating in New York, Toronto and many others. He has already raised thousands of dollars for charity by running and has encouraged millions of old people across the world. He says, “One should stay young and enjoy life until the last breath.” Although, despite holding several records and reaching the feat of success, his accomplishments have yet not been recognized by Guinness World Records because he does not have a valid birth certificate; though his passport states his age to be 101, which I am quite skeptical about.

With the Paris Hiltons and Kim Kardashians of the world so omnipresent in today's popular culture, it's tough to remember that success is possible without a rich dad and some nice connections.

Muhammad Ishbir Azhad's insight:

This article clearly shows famous celebrities who were nothing or very poor when they were young. Over the years, the they did not gave up and became who they are today. These celebrities are inspiration to some people who are experiencing the same thing the celebrities had when they were young. It clearly shows that one must not give up to pursue his or her dream. Anything is possible.

A little inspiration...

Wai Kit's curator insight, June 29, 2013 10:09 AM

This article tells me numerous success stories among many famous people in the world. Many of them were poor when they were young, however, they did not give up and continued to strive onward. This inspired many people to never give up their goal.

Wu Weiyang's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:14 AM

I see that these famous celebrities had humble beginnings. When they were young, they lived in poverty and were often malnourished. I think that they are truly inspiring and it goes to show that success is possible without connections. As long as you have a goal and persevere ever onward towards that goal, you will achieve it. Working extremely hard (efforts) will pay off. I wonder what kept them going to achieve success.
