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.
From this article, we can see that two races are fighting against each other. Disagreements pulled them apart. I believe that the conflict will be solved if they are willing to forgive one another and let go of their hatred. The government shouldn't show favourism but treat the two races fairly since both of the races live together in Sri Lankan. I wonder if the government will take that step to solve this conflict.
The following is my insight on this article using the See-Think-Wonder thinking routine. I see that these six women all have something in common, which is their underprivileged backgrounds. I think that it was only through sheer hard work and perseverance that they could achieve success. They believed in themselves and worked harder than anyone else to get what they desired, to escape out of the vicious cycle of poverty. I wonder what would have happened if these women did not have the fighting spirit and thirst for success.
...The company is finding that the most popular content for tablets depends on the title. Golf Digest sees great success with video. Generally speaking, long-form editorial content like actual stories, video and slideshows do well across the board because the tablet is a lean-back device, where consumers aren’t looking for short snippets of content like they are on a mobile phone, for example.
“If you look at the time of day with highest tablet usage it’s usually during prime time or on the weekends,” Reynolds said. “That’s why we are developing tablet-specific content to fit that different mindset. We’re not worried about tablet usage cannibalizing Web usage because Web, tablet and mobile, are all part of a complementary ecosystem.”
Reynold’s said that the biggest opportunity for Conde Nast in the tablet space is the amount of data is has on subscribers. It gives the publisher a look at the preferences that people have for content and advertising on specific devices and Conde Nast can optimize based on that.
i can see from this article that technology has changed and rapidly developed and are taking over our daily lives, on the Mass Rapid Transport it is rare to find someone not holding a tablet and constantly glued to their screens be it reading books, playing games, watching movies or etc. i think that tablets will continue to develop and soon enough these tablets so wild that it will be out of our imagination. i wonder if there is even any limit to what the human mind can think of.
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,...
I know that many countries in Asia do not have the privilege to be living in a technologically advanced environment like us. They are poor but they never complain. They continued to live their life peacefully. Houses in countries of Asia are in bad condition. We Singaporeans do not know how to appreciate the things we have like food or shelter. Many people died due to the lack of food, water or even shelter. I feel very sad for the poorer income people in some parts of Asia. I wonder, would any richer country go to these poor countries to teach and volunteer to help the less fortunate? Providing them with education and some food by volunteering? I hope that someone generous would really help the poor.
Poverty is affecting our studies and it is going to help us in the future to at least have a degree certificate to find a well paid job, however not many parents have the ability to send their child to schools. The government in these countries should let these people have at least a basic level of education and maybe, this could end the cycle of poverty.And if the person is smart enough, he or she might even bring glory to the conutry. This situation leads to the cycle of poverty
From this chart, i can see that anyone can achieve their goals as long as they believe themselves , with support of their peers and family. They must also have traits like having determination to acheive what they want to ,and they must have a sense of motivation. Being patient as well as being able to take risks is also very important.With all great personalities and support, a person can achieve great talents.
Singapore started out as a small fishing village but, rather quickly, turned into a sprawling metropolis. Like many other countries, it has reached a highly developed state. Public agencies such as Singapore's National Environment Agency would like to envision how to rejuvenate our local environments to inspire and enable communities to make our living environments better – and are eager to collaborate with the global community to explore solutions which resonate in Singapore and across the world.
I can see from this article that the National Environmental agency is trying to inspire citizens and other local communities to build a better environment in Singapore. The National Environmental Agency is also eager to work with global community for better solutions to improve environments across the world. I think with this international cooperation, the Earth can be benefitted and be a more improved biosphere for us to live in. Environmental problems such as pollution can be prevented through measures and solved through solutions. I wonder how Earth will be like without these environmental measures and supporting agencies.
Annual food survey shows that households are ditching fresh, healthy foods and 'trading down' to counter rising prices
The UK's poorest households are being disproportionately hit by the impact of soaring food prices, according to new government figures that also show the consumption of every major nutrient has fallen in the last four years.
In order to cut costs since 2007, UK households have bought less bread, lamb, beef, fish, fruit, vegetables, potatoes and alcoholic drinks – but more bacon.
The government's annual Family Food survey, which provides the most detailed annual snapshot of food and drink spending and consumption, found that weekly spending per person on all household food in 2011 was £27.99, an increase of 1.5% on the previous year. But because of price rises, that bought less food - 4.2% less in 2011 than in 2007.
I think that the government should not increase food prices, people of lower income would not be able to buy sufficient and enough food for themselves or their family. The rise of prices in food has led poor families to eat less nutritional food so as they can save up for other necessities that they need. With the rising of nutritional food prices and the rise of promoting unhealthy and cheap food, households in UK changes from eating healthy food to unhealthy food, as so consumption of nutrition falls drastically.
After reading this article, I know that our mental health would be affected if we lived in poor conditions, poverty. Without food, medical support or even a proper place to live in, it would not be suprising if we were to lose the essence of life or go mad. This article tells us that living in poverty does not only affect one physically, but also mentally. Poverty is indeed a scary thing. I feel very fortunate that i am provided with the basic necessities to survive such as food, water and shelter. I feel that all of us should do our part to help the less fortunate.
If you’ve ever turned on the faucet first thing in the morning and been greeted by a steady flow of murky, brown water, you know that it’s a less-than-pleasant experience. It’s also a little confusing.
Christine Goodman's insight:
In Singapore, we rarely have brown water coming out from the faucet . When brown water comes out from the tap, it is usually caused by rusty pipes. We can fix the problem by changing the pipes. We can still use brown water for everything expect for washing white clothes.
