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 India is the second most racist country in the world. Many Idians would not want foreigners as their neighbours. The writer herself also received rude comments from other races. I think that all of us should accept each other as we are and not leave anyone out just because they have a different skin colout from us. Skin colour does not affect one's personality. I wonder why do people still hold grudge against people with different skin colout from themselves. Why can't people think rationally and stop racism?
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.
Although Singapore has no resources, limited land and a small population, I see that Singapore's economy is improving as we are now ranked 2nd on the World Economic Forum’s global competitiveness rankings. However, there is a lot of crisis in Singapore such as inflation. Despite the crisis, there is still companies willing to come to Singapore and settle down their bussiness here. That made me realise and think that Singapore has really grown alot and even more countries are willing to have bussiness relationship with us. Being such a successful nation for just being a small red dot, I wonder how many countries actually take Singapore as a competitor in this economic world.
American businessman Philip Falcone is a true rags-to-riches story. Escaping from a tiny poverty-stricken iron-ore mining town in northern Minnesota he went on to founding a New York-based successful private investment firm Harbinger Capital.
I see that Philip Falcone is from a very poor family with his mother only earning 80 cents per hour. I can only see that he is a very talented hockey player and even received a scolarship to Harvard and played professionally in Sweden. However he stopped playing hockey because of his knee injury and worked as a junior junk-bond trader. He then eventually became successful. I think he is thankful that he worked as a junior-bond trader as that is where he changed his perspective about life and started to focus on making money. I wonder what would happen to him if he didn't work as a junior-bond trader. If he took up another job, would he still be this successful?
Fat prejudice isn't limited to the adults leading Abercrombie & Fitch and the tabloid industry. According to a new study out of the University of Leeds, children as young as four have internalized the idea that overweight means bad.
Sherry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯'s insight:
In this article, I can see that even kids are thinking that fat is equals to bad. This is called fat prejudice. Young kids internalize stereotypes and negative feelings about fat resulting them to express prejudice toward others, they turn those prejudices onto themselves. I think that we should put a stop to this prejudice and make everyone know that being fat is not bad and it is not a crime and we should all embrace each other as we are. I wonder what will happen if this prejudice goes on. Would more kids start being depressed and think of suicidal as a solution?
After reading this article, I realised that if we change our attitude, we would see things in a different way and thus, have different thinking and the end result would be different as well. I think that the article makes a lot of sense. Only when we have a good attitude, we will succeed because when having a good attitude, you'll have positive thoughts thinking that you can do it. I wonder if people know that attitude is such a important key to success.
