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 | Poverty assignment by_J-lyn Teo | 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...

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

Ed Millband is trying to create a community where everyone is treated equally.A good way would be to encourage immigrants to speak a common language, English, as it will be easier to communicate. In this case, nobody would have problems trying to understand one another.To me, i think to live in a multi-ethnic society, it is important that people agree on the same thing, preventing any conflicts.

Teo J-lyn's insight:

There are 4 factor which leads to poverty: food, water, education and health. As women does not have education as they are too poor, thus they do know that that children needed basic support thus they have too many children and this leads to over-populated. And the over-populated country already has too many people and there is now a lack of food, water and other necessary resources. As there is lack of food and water, children has to eat scrap materials and it is so unhealthy. We should be grateful that we have proper meal and enough money for our daily or weekly allowance. I think it is very important that the government helps them to reduce such problems and find a solution to help them. I wonder if it is possible for everyone children to have at least primary school education and thr government can help the poorer ones to pay for their school fees.

Yu Bixun's curator insight, February 2, 2013 8:52 AM

I can see that about two-third of the world's poorest people are from Asia. India had more than three hundred million of people living in poverty which is the greatest in the world. And because of this, many are uneducated with more time spent on fishing instead of studying. I think that wars are the main contributions to poverty as wars destroyed many farms, crops, settlements and people which caused many to be living in poverty. I think the children who are fishing or playing should attend schools as education can help them end their poverty state. People who are not in poverty state, we should excel in our studies and work hard in it as we are very lucky to be studying with proper education to look for job when we grow up. I wonder if regaining back their farms, industries and settlements could end their poverty state.

Form the above picture, i can see that there is an adult with 3 children in the picture taken above.It is pretty clear that the people above do not come form a wealthy family.Their clothing tells me that there are in a poor state of living..(see)


The children and the in the picture above did not smile when the picture is taken which i think that they are not happy. It may probally because needs are not met for their daily living.(think)


I wonder what there real problem is, weather is it because of money or other matter. I wonder if the goverment or anyone could help them in anyways.(wonder)

Tan Yang Heng Terence's curator insight, February 2, 2013 9:18 AM

After reading this article, i realised another factor leading to poverty in India. It is the Hinduism belief of caste system in India. It is the main religion in India. India have the most amount of people living in poverty in a countrycomparing to the rest of the countries. Almost all of them living in poverty earned less than $1 a day. Long hours of work and effort is put to that $1 that does not seems much in our eyes. 522 millions of people of India are suffering this unbearable situation. This system prevents many people from trying to break their poverty. It is very unfair as not everyone is given a chance to start out equal. Why does the poverty of the previous generation have to burden the future generations? However, a stop to such practise is equivalent to the lost of the culture. Thus, they will never have a chance to break poverty. They will be continue to be despise by others at the top of the caste system. It is such injustice.

Teo J-lyn's insight:

In this article, it shows that there is a rising number of people suffering from diseases such as cancer, herat diseases and many more. This could be cause by the impact of their childhood life because in the article, it state that people who are poorer are more prone to diseases. Tests, studies, experiments have shown that richer people can live longer as they have the money to go or treatment unike poorer people. It is unfair for them to be suffering like that and for some cases, this problems started when they are young, the disease might "follow' thrm until they grow old and it is unfair to them. If only the richer people will lend a helping hand to them and less people will be suffering and this will let the other know that they are not alone and everyone including the rich one is willing to help them.

people from third world countries suffering from diseases such as malaria ,cancer, heart dieases.This diseases can be either caused by the impact of their childhood or from the hereditary  of their parents.As they come from not so developed countries,the medical there is not advanced.And what's more is that  most of the people come from poor families thus they are unable seek treatment even if they are suffering from such diseases or are unwell.So as they slowly develop into an adult,this symptoms of the disease would come haunting them.I feel that it is unfair for these kids. having to suffer from such disease since young is really a torture,yet are unable to get it with their own life.Most people knows that poverty are happening around the world but just the turn away when the issue arose we should help each other as much as possible and make this world a better place to live in 

Tan Qi Shun's curator insight, January 31, 2013 7:38 AM

I do know that people living in a state of poverty most probably live a shorter life or more than often is down with severe dieseases.This article further elaborates on my point and it talks about how new-borns growing up in a poorer environment and state tend to end up in bad conditions. Tests and studies have shown that even when the genes are of similar qualities but when new borns live in a better and richer environment they tend to live longer and it is most probably because the parents are able to afford and seek medical treatments when in need of any. However the poor are unable to do anything about their illness, depriving them of a fighting chance. There is a large difference of the state of health between the rich and the poor, with the rich being able to handle health complications and the poor ending up helpless.After reading this article i feel very fortunate that every single Singaporean is blessed with the chance to meet their medical needs. I would like to challenge the point at which why the goverment of those various countries not implementing any programs to help the poor seek any medical attention. Do they not feel unfair for the poor when the rich is able to meet their while the poor is unable to? 

Benjamin Yap Kian Hwee's comment, February 4, 2013 8:11 AM
After reading this article, I learnt that more people who are born in poor countries are suffering from diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other diseases. These diseases are often from their heredity or since childhood. They come from poor countries, hence the medical development are not advanced. Even if their medical development is advanced, they might not have enough money to pay for their medical bills. I find it very unfair that people who are rich can afford to get expensive medical treatment from private hospitals while the poor cannot even get the most basic treatments from clinics.

Teo J-lyn's insight:

This article shows that many countries are facing poverty due to the shortage of water. As water are used for agricultural, husehold and other purposes thus there is shortage of water and this cause alot of profit lose especially the farmers as water is also part of their 'tool" for agricultural. I wonder if it is possible for the government to increase water untility bill and so prople will use the water more wisely. And most importantly, government should find other ways to stop the shortage of water.

Wong Jia Yi, Ferene's curator insight, January 30, 2013 11:33 PM

It can be seen that there is a water shortage in certain areas on the Earth. I think it is due to the fact of water wastage by the richer countries and it would be better for the worl if we could be more conservative about it. I wonder if one day if really water will be used as a trading tool. 

Tan Ying Shan's comment, January 31, 2013 2:07 AM
it is obvious that water shortage is a controversial issue in some of the countries and in future we might even use the river,lakes and even the sea water as it could be our only source of water by then and because of the shortage of water, the people living in some countries are getting into poverty by the days. i think that we should start conserving water even though we have enough now. We have to plan for the future as water is going to run out someday. I was wondering if in the near future, if the world doesn't have anymore water, what would the people reaction be if they don't start conserving water now.
Quek Ee Pin's curator insight, January 31, 2013 8:26 PM

I can see that from this article, it is clear that countries world-wide are starting to promote activites to conserve water. Also, many companies that require water to do their businesses are using the money to help ensure that the communites are protecting and conserving water. I think that such activities might have a big impact in the future, when there is a shortage of water, causing such companies and the countries to benefit from it, causing poverty to hit the public as they have to pay for the water. I wonder how communities are able to benefit from these activites other than receiving the benefit of money they recieve from the government and companies.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training | Poverty assignment by_J-lyn Teo | Scoop.it
For too long, the national dialogue about college education has been focused on access and affordability.
Teo J-lyn's insight:

This article tell us that poverty is affecting our studies and it is essential to at least have a degree certificate to find a job, however not many parents have the ability to send their child to schools. Thus children have to give up on going schooling as the expense is really too expensive. Parents are working very hard to at least let us have proper meal and minimum primary school education and we should be grateful for that. Some children dont even have the ability to go for further studies. It is actuall a waste as they have already start schooling and they have to stop education. I think it will be better if the government is willing to help the poorer ones and help them in further studies. And if the person is smart enough, he or she might even bring glory to the conutry. I wonder what will haoppen if the government does not help them and they have to drop out of schools?

well through this article, people have been educated. they might have been taught of the problem of poverty. thus they might be able to play a role in helping the problem. another thing is that through education, they are able to find jobs more easily. they will also be able to feed their own family. so the more people get jobs, the lesser people will turn to poverty. thus through education, the problem of poverty might just be lessen down!

Merci Goh's curator insight, February 4, 2013 8:10 AM

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, 2014 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.

Teo J-lyn's insight:

This article clearly shows that many people in india is suffering due to poverty. Many children has no foods and not even water. The main idea of this article, is to reduce the percentage of poverty in India. I think it will be better if there is a better way of solving this problem. The govenrment should create more jobs and reduce the population growth. As there are simplt too many people in India and since there is food shortage, the government should just resuce the population growth and stop making innocent people. I wonder if one day the government does not stop this from happening, what will happen to the people in India.  Are the poverty going to increase or decrease as the article states that there will be a decrease in poverty.

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.

Xuan Tay Yu's curator insight, February 1, 2013 7:52 AM

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. 

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.
