Miliband calls for improved integration of immigrants to reduce pressures of a multi-ethnic society

Miliband calls for improved integration of immigrants to reduce pressures of a multi-ethnic society | Possibilities and Conflict and Prejudice. 3G 04 | Scoop.it

The Labour leader Ed Miliband today called for an overhaul of housing and employment policy – and a concerted drive to teach English to recent immigrants – in an effort to improve integration and reduce the strains of a multi-ethnic society.

He admitted that the last Government made serious mistakes over immigration, underestimating the capacity of some communities to adapt to new arrivals. He also conceded that it had blundered by adopting an open-doors policy for new arrivals from the East European countries that joined the EU in 2004.

Under his proposals, Labour would expect migrants to learn English, tackle landlords who cram newcomers into overcrowded houses and ban recruitment agencies from seeking workers only from particular countries or ethnic groups...

Huril Jannah Bte Jumari's insight:

Ed Miliband feels that a multi-ethnic in Great Britain has so many strains. He wants the immigrants to be able to speak english so that there won't be any miscommunication problems. This also puts people on the same level. They will be able to voice out their opinions much easier. Some landlords also use the chance to cheat on newcomers to stay in an unhealthy environment. Having the immigrants to learn English helps to improve their communication so that no racial group is pushed aside.

Ed Miliband feels that everyone in Great Britiasn should know how to speak English and it is important for everyone to know the language. He wants a multi-ethnic society in Great Britian. With everyone being able to speak a common language ideas and opinions could be easily brought up towards creating this multi-ethnic society. It is important for the people to communicate and agree on it. As different opinions may cause conflict in the community

Huril Jannah Bte Jumari's insight:

Technology and media have become the few important things in our lives. We depend on it to give us the latest news or trends. This helps us to be updated. However, some may choose to abuse it. Social media may cause a huge damage to us as we Singaporeans avoid communicating face to face. Since there is 3G or even 4G users, they are able to retrieve news faster. Some places have provided free wifi. This enables us to be connected to people living far away, however, it may cause us to be further away than the closer ones around us.

Social media in Singapore nowadays, is regarded as a category of online media in which people participate, share, network, and engage in discussions with others with similar interests online. Most social media services encourage discussion, feedback, comments, and sharing of information from all interested parties. Through social media, teens are developing a sense of who they are and where they fit into their community and the world. Today, through the Internet and other networked technologies, people have unlimited access to information and a wide array of online technologies in which they may use to access and share that information. Furthermore, the potential for instant connection around the globe is phenomenal. An instant click functions as a door that brings you to a global networked world, in which all these communication and information technologies link people and this provides a platform on which information and influence can flow.

Lee Li Ying's curator insight, June 23, 2013 3:08 PM

Many social-networking sites have been created to allow for better connection and communication with people all around the world. For example, they allow one to keep in touch with his/her loved ones easily and one to organise discussions with others without the need to meet up. As people are becoming more and more IT savvy, with just a move of the cursor over a link and a left-click, it directs you to a global networked world, in which all these communication and information technologies link people and provides a platform on which information and influence can flow.

Lie Kehui's curator insight, June 27, 2013 9:37 PM

Social media and technology have become one of the essential things in our daily lives. Social media is a platform where people can engage in online discussions. It can even update us on the latest news and trends. Through social media, teenagers can develop a sense of fitting and belonging with their community and the world. In this fast-paced country, people have created faster networks which allows people to retrieve news or updates even faster. However, as more people become so used to using their social media on phones or tabs to communicate with others around the world, the chance of them having the confidence to talk to one another face-to-face would be affected as people now have a perception that talking through the net or messaging would be easier to communicate and some might even feel comfortable communicating online compared to communicating verbally. Although the social media is so convenient for us to connect the people around the world, it may also cause us to drift away from reality and further away from our close ones.

Off and Running: 101-Year-Old Fauja Singh is The World's Oldest Marathon Runner

Off and Running: 101-Year-Old Fauja Singh is The World's Oldest Marathon Runner | Possibilities and Conflict and Prejudice. 3G 04 | Scoop.it
In 2011, Fauja Singh became the first centenarian to complete a full marathon by finishing the Toronto’s Waterfront Marathon. His dedication, determination and passion for running took him to the pinnacle of success and fame.

Huril Jannah Bte Jumari's insight:

This inspires people to keep on doing whatever they believe in. They must be dedicated and determined to achieve their goals. Though a person has passion for something, to achieve it they must also put in effort. Nothing comes free in life. Having the positive mindset do help to achieve their goals.

This is my insight using see-think-wonder thinking routines. Although Fauja Singh is 101 years old, he is very passionate to running and runs marathons again and again. Teenagers and adults do not even like to run several kilometers, yet he is able to run 42km. He is a good role model for everyone and encourages elderly across the world to run and stay fit. He even did not keep the money he earned from running marathons, but donates it to charity.

RuiHan Chia's curator insight, June 30, 2013 9:48 AM

I have never seen or knew any century year old people being a marathon runner. It is just unbelievable. This Indian born British centenarian marathon runner started his first race in 2000 in London and continued participating in New York, Toronto and many others. He has already raised thousands of dollars for charity by running and has encouraged millions of old people across the world. He says, “One should stay young and enjoy life until the last breath.” Although, despite holding several records and reaching the feat of success, his accomplishments have yet not been recognized by Guinness World Records because he does not have a valid birth certificate; though his passport states his age to be 101, which I am quite skeptical about.

Huril Jannah Bte Jumari's insight:

This article tells us that India is the second most racist country. This is due to the fact that they are uncomfortable to live beside their neighbours. This maybe due to the different languages. To me, if a country faces a racism issue it just shows that they are not able to adapt to the changes. Nothing in this world remains the same and people are moving across the world to find business. To be a globalized country, we must learn to adapt ourselves. A country may have to put in effort to bond with their fellow neigbors. Students may also be send for an exchange. This is so that the children will learn to accept other cultures when young and this may be passed to other generations.

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, 2016 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.

Huril Jannah Bte Jumari's insight:

This chart tells me how environmet factors, talents and abilities play a huge role in reaching possibilities. This is as it affects a person's self-concept and self-esteem. That leads or help to increase desire to develop one's talent. There are many factors that lead to reaching possibilities. I do find realizing that we're able to reach our goals is improtant so that we do not give up halfway through.

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.
