Gautam's insight:

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.

Singapore is a country with a multi-ethnic society and therefore it is vital for Singapore to maintain racial harmony. I can see that Singapore has set up many different policies and 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. This makes me wonder that will racial harmony ever be broken? Will just one tiny straw break the camel's back?

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.

I can see from this article that Singapore is respected by the world for our education and teaching system. It shows that Singapore's system is something many countries want to implant in their own systems and is a method that works in the 21st century. I wonder how different countries manage to try and implant and similar system in the own country.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tan Kai Han's curator insight, June 28, 2013 4:01 AM

From this article i can see that there is prejudice toward various stereotyped groups.Chambers and colleagues hypothesized that, contrary to what some research might indicate, prejudice is not restricted to a particular political ideology. I think that people to conflicting values of liberals and conservatives giving rise to different kinds of prejudice, with each group favoring other social groups that share the same values. I wonder how do they feel after being treated so badly.

Wai Kit's curator insight, June 29, 2013 11:08 AM

From this article, I learnt that there are many types of prejudice towards various stereotype groups. People select and interpret evidence consistent with their own pre-existing attitudes and ideologies.

Nathaniel Loreno Arendayen's curator insight, July 2, 2013 11:52 AM

Using the 'see-think-wonder', I can see that there are various types of prejudice towards certain stereotype groups and that it affects politics in a large scale. I think that these various types of prejudice should cease. Nothing can be gained out of hate, already bad situations only get worse when prejudice is involved. I wonder why the prejudice is such a commonly linked issue with politics.

Teo J-lyn's curator insight, July 3, 2013 3:27 AM

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.
