Muhd Khairin Spoonerism's insight:

I see That the founder of Adidas Adolf dassler was from a poor family and that he wanted create a athelatic shoe brand company with his brother the founder of puma Rudolf Dassler but after several years of conflict they separated.I think that he felt that the shoe company was not going to be a success and he pushed on and created more shoes.I wonder whether i thought that his brand would be a success

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.

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.

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.

The children's commissioner voices further concerns over the Welsh government's approach to child poverty.

Muhd Khairin Spoonerism's insight:

It is sad to see that some children are living in the slums or the bad part of the neighbourhood.The childrens commisioner tries to raise concern about the situation but the only thing the goverment says is that they are still concentrating people that are in poverty but they just dont know that the children are going to be the ones to take care of work when the others get old and retire

Wen Shi's comment, January 27, 2014 8:45 PM
It is true that many children around the world live in poverty. They do not have enough food, nutrient, or clothes. Many of them can not have education. Without proper education, they do not have enough skills to work; they may have lots of children as they are lacking of scientific knowledge, etc. That is the main cause why they are still in poverty after growing up.
Huang Ziqian's comment, January 27, 2014 8:45 PM
I agree with Jesslyn's insight. If a child grows up in a poor family, the nutritions the family can provide the child is not enough. When a child reaches the age for school, the family is unable to let him or her receive good education either. After the child grows up, there is a highly chance that he or her will not be able to get a job. These poor people would still be living in poverty. That hinders the development of the country, as well.'
Wen Shi's comment, January 28, 2014 6:29 AM
So that's why other charity organisations and the government are doing work on this and hopefully change their circumstances. These organisations or programs provide children who cannot afford to go to school to have proper education, enough food and nutrients. They are hoping to change their lives. However, the toughest task is on them, the children who are in poverty. They need to be positive and strong-minded to challenge themselves and be a great figher who fights against poverty. It's them who can do the most to help themselves out.

UN calls for combining energy access with anti-poverty projects in Asia

UN calls for combining energy access with anti-poverty projects in Asia | Poverty Assignment by Khairin | Scoop.it
Services that combine access to modern energy for heating, cooking and electricity, with measures that generate cash, supplement incomes and improve health and education would be the most effective energy solutions in Asia and the Pacific,...

Muhd Khairin Spoonerism's insight:

I can see that even in asia there are people in poverty.People are not able to buy electricity to make be able to be warm or feel secured.About 40 % of people depend on charcoal or wood to keep them warm burning those materials can lead to them choking on smoke starting fires.Even if the let electricity be free for the poor that will not reduce poverty that only make them poor people with electricity access

Benjamin Yap Kian Hwee's comment, February 4, 2013 7:51 AM
After reading this article, I see that the people are not able to pay for electricity. The government is helping them by building solar panels to collect energy from the sun. This will benefit many people, for example the children can study even after the sunset and the adults can use electrical appliances to cook food instead of using fire. Now the people can use the computer and connect to the outside world and let people know about what is poverty.
Wong Jia Ler's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:08 AM

This method is viable, it will help many obtain cooked food, but. is this method viable in a way in cost effectiveness if we wanted to do this in a world wide scale to help everyone? I do not think so, but, it is still good as this project had helped many, thousands, or maybe millions. lives are saved, but maybe we could look for a new method to help them which is cost effective and needed by people affected by poverty.

Praveent Thamil Mani's curator insight, January 20, 2014 7:21 AM

Support offered by government and non-government agencies to people to come out of the poverty line.


I see that a report by the UN Development Programme confirms that there can be no development without energy, and that poverty cannot be addressed sustainably without paying due attention to energy services.  The poor need energy to get out of poverty, but energy alone is not enough. The poor need support to generate income so that energy becomes affordable, which in turn will improve household living standards. Nearly half the world’s population lacks reliable access to modern energy services. I hope that this process speeds up and the poverty in the world is decreased.
