Thinesh Kannan's insight:

Singapore is a country with a multi-ethnic society and therefore it is vital for Singapore to maintain racial harmony. Singapore has set up many different programmes to ensure everyone enjoys societal harmony. One example in which is the "bilingualism policy where students learn English and their own Mother Tongue". I think that this is good as it ensures that everyone lives in harmony. Also, these policies are reviewed periodically and tweaked to ensure they meet the current and future needs of the population.

Will just one tiny straw break the camel's back?

I think that Singapore is a country with multi-ethnic society and thus it is important for them to mantain racial harmony. Or there will be many racial riots, and many lives would be lost.

Wu Weiyang's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:53 AM

I see that the Singapore government has implemented many policies and programmes to maintain the racial cohesion in Singapore. They have truly considered all aspects of race and religion and that is the key to our harmonious society now. I think that it is important that we do not have racial riots in Singapore because that would disrupt the peaceful lives of people and reflect badly on Singapore. Our economic will also be affected. The racial riots will lead to nothing, except lives lost and broken families. I wonder what will happen if such policies and programmes are not implemented.

Racism is a white man's invention: Indians may be bigoted, prejudiced and ... - Daily Mail

Thinesh Kannan's insight:

The article says that India is the second-most racist country in the world. 43% of the Indians living there do not want to live next to a person of different race. Some of them said that they agree they are casteist and that they divide themselves based on religions and regions but that they are not racist. Racism was a white man's invention. I wonder the Indians there are comfortable living with only Indians beside them.

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.

Success Story of Adolf Dassler, the Founder of Adidas

Success Story of Adolf Dassler, the Founder of Adidas | Possibilities,Conflict and Prejudice by_Thinesh Kannan | Scoop.it
Adolf Dassler was the founder of the World’s second biggest sportswear manufacturing company Adidas. His father Christoph worked in a shoe factory and mother ran a laundry service.

Via Amanda Simmons
Thinesh Kannan's insight:

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.

Ivan Koh's curator insight, June 30, 2013 5:30 PM

This article tells me about how Adolf Dassler became the founding father of Adidas, one of the biggest sportswear companies. I think that Adolf Dassler, coming from a working family, was determined to help athletes improve their sportswear so that they can do better in competitions. I think it was his experience from being a cobbler that begun at a very young age and advice from many people and his wanting that has led him to creating shoes with good designs which one day earned popularity from wearers of his brand who won competitions. I wonder though how did industry competitions and conflicts fare with puma and nike being that the founder both came from the same family.

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.

Thinesh Kannan's insight:

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. The world will be a better place then.

Jaslyn Si Jia's curator insight, July 3, 2013 6:45 AM

After reading this article, i learnt that there is a conflict between the Tamils and Sinhalese, which took place in Sri Lanka and lasted for over more than 100 years. As the Sinhalese have many benefits like, more job offers and further education opportunities, which the Tamils are unhappy about, thus conflicts between the two ethnic groups started.

I feel that the two ethnic groups shouldn't use violence to solve their problems. Its not worth it to get people injured or killed just to have that problem evened out. Both should talk to each other what their are unhappy about and give in to each other.

I wonder why they want to pursue the matter for such a long time.

Ameer Artsyrup's curator insight, July 5, 2013 8:59 AM

After reading this article, I believe that in order for a country to achieve progress, social, economical and political stability, it has to first achieve muti-ethnic harmony. this is true as different races in a country need to work in cohesion in order to benefit both the country and themselves. This can be seen as Singapore has gone through much progress since the racial riots end. However if racial instability has struck a multi-ethnic country, this will create a lot of problems for the country like major riots and civil wars. this will cause the country to fall in economical and political terms. This can be seen in Sri Lanka as it went through civil war which killed more than 100000 people. This war greatly affect Sri Lanka's economy and causes a major political instability in the country. Due to this, I believe that a country multi-ethnic country must achieve racial harmony in order to benefit everyone.

Evelynkoh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 11:23 AM

Peace and harmony , don't everyone want to stay that way forever? Thats why i seriously wonder , why would people want to start wars , destroying their paradise. In every country's road to success , there must be lots and lots of ups and downs , between its neighboring countries and even between their own people. We're all living in the 21st century , why would we still think in that manner that violence will solve everything? It never will , it will just make the matter worse and cause it to affect a larger amount of people and to last for an even longer period of time. The matter may start of small but because of the use of violence , the matter will start to enlarge and then it would not only be in-between the people who started the matter but the whole country. It will then be reflected badly on the race of the people and also the country. Bit by bit everything will start to fall. Therefore , to me i wonder , why would people want to make things that are simple into things that are so complicated that will cause major damages?

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 by_Thinesh Kannan | 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....

Thinesh Kannan's insight:

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?

Chen Yixin's curator insight, June 30, 2013 2:57 AM

 

From what I have seen, Singapore's environment and lifestyle were highly affected due to the haze produced by the burning of dead crops in Sumatra, Indonesia. 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 who invested in burning. I think Indonesia should not be so irresponsible in pushing the blame to the other countries. Instead, Indonesia should cooperate with countries like Singapore, hand in hand together, find out the culprits and solve the problem together. 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 vice-versa.

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.
