Child poverty approach concern

Xuan Tay Yu's insight:

This is my insight on this article. Children have an unnoticeable importance in today's society, and it is very sad to see so many of them suffering in poverty. It is however very touching to see influential characters taking action. I feel everyone should do their part in helping these children. They must feel very miserable living in the way they are now, and may feel hopeless. If we help one another, the world might not be split apart, one part is afflence, the other poverty.

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, 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, 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.

Case Study: Sri Lanka - Conflict and Harmony in Multi-Ethnic Societies - Resource Guides at National Library, Singapore

Case Study: Sri Lanka - Conflict and Harmony in Multi-Ethnic Societies - Resource Guides at National Library, Singapore | Poverty Assignment_(Tay Yu Xuan) | Scoop.it
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.

Xuan Tay Yu's insight:

From this article, I can see that there was an ethnic conflict between the Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka. It all began when the Tamil minority had more control over the Sinhalese for jobs and educational opportunities. It was worsen when Sri Lankan government said sinhala was the only language that can be spoken. This made the tamils difficult to communicate. Fight soon broke out. I think that both races should have been treated each other fairly. Now Sri Lanka is recovering from civil wars. I wonder if both races will fight again.

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?

Philip Falcone, A Classic Rags-To-Riches Story

Philip Falcone, A Classic Rags-To-Riches Story | Poverty Assignment_(Tay Yu Xuan) | Scoop.it

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.

Xuan Tay Yu's insight:

This is a truely amazing story. This man, Philip Falcone, become rich through sheer hardwork and determination. He was born to a very poor family and now he is a billionaire. I think this man has proven the world not to give up easily, and keep pursueing your dreams, and one day your problems will disappear, and your dreams come true. He is a great role model to people who are facing problems that seem impossible to solve. I wonder hoe he found the courage to move on.

Sherry ¯\_(ツ)_/¯'s curator insight, June 28, 2013 3:02 AM

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?

Bernice Phua Rui Yi's curator insight, July 2, 2013 11:19 AM

Philip Falcone was born into a poverty striken home in Chisholm, Minnesota. He had a thing for hockey and even recieved a scholarship to Havard to play professionally in Sweden but due to serious knee injury, his career as a hockey player had came to an end. He then moved on and started working as a junior junk-bond trader on Wall Street. It was there he decided to focus on earning money. Since then, with all his hardwork, he is now a billionaire. This tells us that coming from a poor family doesnt mean that you'll be poor for the rest of your life. Hardwork is one of the the soultions to poverty.

Ameer Artsyrup's curator insight, July 3, 2013 9:19 AM

From this article, I get to see that Philip Falcone faced poverty since he was young as he lived in a tiny poor town. However, his luck changed when he decided to leave his town to earn a living in the city.There, he founded a New York-based private investment  firm. From there, he begin to earn a lot of money and made himself rich. From this story, I learn that if we want to change our future to a brighter one, we should do something about it so that we may achieve it. However there is also another factor that will enable us to change our future and that is hardwork. In this article, I infer that Philip had been very hard working and resilient in order to achieve his aspiration as i believe that he went through a lot of hardships in order to be as he is now from his humble beginning. In all, I believe we should follow his footstep in order to achieve our aspirations.

This is my insight. After reading this article, I am very shocked that India is the second-most racist country in the world after Jordan. 43 per cent of Indians say that they wouldn't want to live next to a neighbour of a different race.

Koo Xin Yi's comment, July 2, 2013 1:04 PM
After reading this article, I can see that racism has became a serious issue such that one's attitude to another is based on their race, skin tone, religion etc. I believe that people should not be bias towards one another for it is not what we can decide to be born as. I think that everyone has equal rights to voice out and their views and should be given equal opportunities. Accepting one another for what they are is a basic respect and furthermore, we should be more conscious of others' feelings and thought. I wonder if racism will still be such a big issue in the near future.
Teo J-lyn's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:31 AM

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.

Both inequality and poverty cause health and social problems – they are forces that need to be tackled together. | Poverty Assignment_(Tay Yu Xuan) | Scoop.it

With a stagnant economy and banking reform still years away, inequality between rich and poor still looms large. New research by Karen Rowlingson for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation shows that a combination of inequality and poverty can lead to serious health and social problems, and we cannot address one adequately without looking at the other.


Via Glasgow ENF
Xuan Tay Yu's insight:

This is my insight on this article. From this article i can confirm that, poverty and in equality causes health problems, and social problems. More unequal countries have lower rates of social mobility, trust, educational performance,  along with, higher rates of teenage births, imprisonment, infant mortality, murder, and so on. It is possible that in inequality places people are in a social hierarchy which increases competition for status and causes stress, leading to poor health and social effects. The people should work as one to equalize everything, where they could neutralize the problem too.

5 Causes Of Poverty In Africa


Via Micaela Desmet
Xuan Tay Yu's insight:

This is my insight on this article. I read that Africa has big problems, like poor governance, conflicts, corruption, environmental degradation, diseases, etc. The government should take more responsibility in governing the country, if not he will further bring the country down with him. The people of the country should do something also, maybe choose another more capable and trustable government. The government could do more to help the country out, like maybe form relationships with other countries so they can ask for help if in need.

Devyabharati's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:54 AM

This is my insight. Africa is suffering from many problems such as Poor Governance, Conflict, Corruption, Environmental Degradation and Disease. These problems are not addressed and they are affecting the people of Africa. The people of Africa aren't guided well either. Government should step up and solve all this problems by forming diplomatic ties with other countries and asking organisations to help them to stop and prevent poverty and improve the lives of Africans.

Chia Yi Xuan's curator insight, February 3, 2013 3:44 AM

From this article, It shows what are the causes of poverty in africa. The main reason is due to poor government. There are a few main points leading to the poverty in Africa, mainly, Corruption, Environmental Problems and Diseases. Although Africa has agriculture to provide them with food,it is no longer sustainable due to the poor environment hygiene and climate there.The problem of poverty there also increases as there are diseases such as HIV and Aids. I hope that more people will help Africa be it in terms of food supply or environmental issues and more volunteers will help them out.

Brandon Lee's curator insight, February 4, 2013 10:52 AM

From the insight of the article, it spelt out the five causes of Poverty in Africa. They are namely Poor Governance, Conflict, Corrupt, Environment Degradation and Disease issues. The article also relates that the African government need a healthy budget in its expenditures to defence against its social and economic development and stability.

In my opinion, a strong and good governance will have great impact on its country development.

In thoughts, Africa could resolve its poverty issues overtime, provided that it resolves most of its conflicting issues within its country.

From this chart, I can see that anybody can be whoever they want, as long as they belief in themselves. If they have the self-esteem, self-concept, good support from their family and friends, the desire to learn, they can realise their own talents, and develop in it, making many possibllities in life. The personality in a person can affect their realisation of talent too. Examples are determination and patience. With all great personalities and support, a person can achieve great talents.

As long as people believe in themselves, they will be able to do better in life, of course,with the support of their family and friends. In order to achieve what they want to, they must have traits like determination , and a sense of motivation.Taking risk and being patient and having self esteem is also very important. I beleive that with a good attitude and personalities, a person can achieve great talents.

Wu Weiyang's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:21 AM

I see that there are many factors leading to realization of reaching the possibilities such as specific personality traits and environmental factors. However, the most important factor is to believe in yourself, build up your confidence and have the desire to succeed. I think that women can be just as successful as men in the different faculties as long as they realize their talent. I wonder what will happen if the enviroment is not ideal to realize your talent.

Ameer Artsyrup's curator insight, July 5, 2013 9:52 AM

From this flowchart, I can see that there are many factors that may or will lead to the opportunities available. The flowchart also show that rescilience and the desire to excel is also needed to reach the possibilities other than having the skills needed to do so. Another important factor is that we must believe in ourselves in order to achieve the opportunities. Eventhough there are a lot of factors that has not got to do with us we are solely responsible in opening more opportunities.

How Singapore creates its economic miracles | Globe and Mail

How Singapore creates its economic miracles | Globe and Mail | Poverty Assignment_(Tay Yu Xuan) | Scoop.it

 

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.

Since Singapore's independence, there has been a tremendous improvement in economy. Nobody thought Singapore would make it on its own. Its economy is very vulnerable, it has to rely on other countrises to grow. Singapore does not have its own resources. However I feel lucky for Singapore as it managed to overcome big economic challenges like SARS in 2003 and global recession in 2008. I wonder if Singapore will make it in the future years.

Teo J-lyn's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:13 AM

I see that the economy of Singapore has hetting better but recently, the progress hadbecome slower because of many things that happened which hit hard on our economy.Many countries were affected, including Singapore as our economy relies mainly on exports. Despite this, many big organisations and businesses are willing to set up companies and develop in Singapore. I think that there is still alot that Singapore can do and offer despite the challenges it is facing and the limitations it has.Eventhough things may have been slowing down, Singapore still receives offers. The reason Singapore is slowing down is because since Singapore is such a small country, the amount of natural resources we have here is very limited. Despite the limited and small space, Singapore is not affected as there are still people who wants to work and start businesses here. This shows that Singapore has done a great job making itself known to the world, and has already found a space for itself.

Ameer Artsyrup's curator insight, July 5, 2013 10:44 AM

After reading this article, I found out that Singapore's econmy has boomed since its independence. However this is only due as Singapore has traded with other countries in order to survive. On one end, this sounds great as Singapore is thriving due to this but, on the other end, this is also worrying as this clearly shows that Singapore is dependent on other countries in order to survive. This clearly shows us that Singapore is extremely vulnerable. However after ssingapore survived the SARS, H5N1 and the H1N1 period, I believe that the future of this nation is bright.

Evelynkoh's curator insight, July 5, 2013 11:13 AM

As we all know , Singapore is a young nation which has been rediscovered and rebuilt a few years ago. Singapore may be small and that it doesn't have any nature resources but it's position in the world is what makes it stands out. It started of as a port and has slowly been created to how it is now , a successful country , the country which practices meritocracy which is known worldwide. All of these wouldn't have happened if our forefather's didn't protect and built our country well. This is their results of their hard work. However , as it is , Singapore is a very tiny red dot on the globe and is extremely vulnerable to everything that's happening in the world. However , no matter how many crisis we faced we're still standing as strong as ever because we didn't give up , we singaporeans all have a sense of belonging and we all fought and stood with singapore when it was weak. Nowadays , competition is really getting more and more intense as the days , the hours , the minutes and the seconds past. Its like between everyone and everything , there's a competition going on , no matter big or small , all of us are under intense pressure , trying our very best to be the victor. This is why , i hope that this article which is published would make an impact to all its reader's out there , slapping them in their face that they would definitely have to step up and work together to maintain how everything is now. Once they stop and start turning lazy , everything will just go down and i really don't want to think how it will be then. Thus i hope that since singapore has survived so many major crisis , we would forever be like this , the bright and successful nation which everyone looks up to.

Using the See Think Wonder routine. From this Acticle I can see the Education is link to Poverty. Without Education we will not have the knowledge and without education knowledge we will not have jobs to help us earn money to make a living. People who does not have educations will not have jobs and will not have earning which leads to poverty. Families without Education will not be able to take care of thier children and they will get sick and may lead to death. I wonder why people don't feel thankful for having education, other people who wants education does not even get to have.

Mina Macy Markovic's curator insight, February 24, 5:12 PM

In today's world, a college degree is something that is very important to have in order to have an good and stabled employment. The challenge for the people in poverty is the high expenses for college. This is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of youths and their families in not just to people who are in poverty but to even families who are in middle class economically. I think that this article is interesting as it tells us the problem with the educational system in our current generation, and also telling us the good solution to giving students from a low income family a chance to prove their worth and have a bright future. All this could start in high school by preparing them the best they can in order for the students to attend college.

This is my insight on this article. The world is currently experiencing food shortages, and it could go worse by 2050. In India, so many people are poor, making the number reach a third of the wolrd's poor. If we do not do anything about it the food shortage, more people are going to suffer. Water shortage is also a problem, which causes animals to die out if the animals lack the water. If the animals die, we do not have meat to eat. This is a big problem because need the protein from the animals.

Teoh Jun Fang's curator insight, January 31, 2013 10:13 PM

See-think-wonder. After reading this article, I can see that there is shortage of food in India due to poverty. About half the children as young as five years old in India were underweight. The other half stopped growing. These were caused by not having enough nutrition as they do not have enough money to buy food. On the contrary, in Singapore, very few of the children living are underweight. Instead, most of them are acceptable and some are even overweight. Therefore I think that we should not waste food because children in other countries are starving. But here we are throwing away food that we are not able to finish. Hence I think we should learn to “buy what we can finish” so that wastage of food will be reduced. Other than children not having enough food in India, the world might also be short of food in the next 40 years. This is also another reason i think that we should not be wasting food. Otherwise it might lead to the future generation suffering. I think that everyone should cherish what they have, be it food, water or personal belongings etc. I feel that the government should really do something for his citizens that food shortage will stop occurring in India, and the children will be able to grow healthily. This article also made me wonder if the government are trying to help his citizens or leave the food shortage problem like that because it is a difficult problem to solve? Or are the government even aware of food shortage problem in India? Did they even take a look in it?

Lee ZongHan's curator insight, January 31, 2013 11:34 PM

This is my insight using the 4Cs, Connection, Poverty in India is widespread, with the nation estimated to have a third of the world's poor. In 2010, World Bank stated, 32.7% of the total Indian people fall below the international poverty line of US$ 1.25 per day while 68.7% live on less than US$ 2 per day.

Concepts, food shortage, the world’s population could become all but vegetarian by the year 2050 because of water shortages and a spiralling population, scientists have warned. Nine hundred million people already go hungry and 2 billion people are malnourished in spite of the fact that per capita food production continues to increase. Changes, there have to be some change in the food shortage in India. India government have to create more jobs for the citizens in India so that they have enough money to buy foods. Challenges, India have lots of lands and the goverment could use those lands for farming. So that they will have enough foods.

Ong Yi An's curator insight, February 4, 2013 4:04 AM

While looking at the article, i realised that 8 Indian states have more poor people than 26 poorest African nations. The people there are suffering a hard time as they do not have food. From the picture, i can see that they all have a plate with them. Therefore i infer that they used the plate for begging people to give them food so that they could survive. I believed that the country was not so poor at first by as the economic rises, they could follow it. Therefore, they fell into despair and poverty. There are also some adults in the picture, i think that they maybe the parents of the children. They are poor, thus no money to effort birth control. Therefore, having many children. But being them to the world is also something difficult for them as they must get more food, more money to bring them up. The children will then have to suffer along. Not only the humans have to suffer, the animals have to suffer too. The cause of food shortages are because of the economics, environment and many more.

It's them who can do the most to help themselves out.
