AMOS YEE STILL STUCK IN US PRISON, ASKS FOR BOOKS TO BE SENT TO COMFORT HIM

Amos is still needlessly in prison because the government continues to challenge the court ruling that granted his political asylum. The government’s decision to continue to incarcerate him weighs heavily on his spirits as he continues to fight against the enduring stress of his imprisonment in the US and the trauma from his imprisonment in Singapore. Amos has found comfort reading books that his supporters have sent him over the weeks. Amos has requested Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam​'s book “Make it right for Singapore: Speeches in Parliament, 1997-1999” in solidarity with those who have been unjustly persecuted by their governments.

PAP MINISTER: NAIVE TO THINK CHINA WILL STOP INVESTING IN OTHER COUNTRIES IF S'PORE ALIGNS CLOSER WITH IT

Senior Minister of State Chee Hong Tat slammed critics who believe that by aligning Singapore closer with China, China would stop investing in projects in neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia which would hurt Singapore's prospects. He said these people are drawing a simplistic and flawed conclusion. He said that even if Singapore aligns itself closely with China, Beijing would continue making investments in ASEAN to enhance its connectivity and protect its energy security which are based on China's national interests.

ACCENTURE SG UNDER FIRE FOR JOB AD HIRING ONLY THOSE WITH US OR INDIAN DEGREES

Accenture SG placed a job advertisement the Singapore Government’s Jobsbank it requires candidates applying to have “PhD/MS in quantitative sciences or Post Grad in Management (Marketing/ Finance/SCM) preferably from a US university or Indian management school. I find the advertisement absolutely disgraceful and is another demonstration of how Singaporean workers are discriminated against in their own country. The advertisement shown below is a not so subtle hint that the employer is looking for an Indian worker.

WHY IS THE PAP GOVT PUNISHING INNOCENT CHILDREN OF UNWED SINGLE MOTHERS?

We are aghast at what your ministry said about single mothers whose children are born out of wedlock. We don't condone such matters ourselves, but the fact is that the children are innocent & are being penalized for their mothers' mistakes. And moreover, it takes 2 hands to clap. Going by MSF's logic, shouldn't the men also play their parts? But we digress here.

FAILED SCHOLAR CEO NG YAT CHUNG TAKES HELM OF SPH, WILL HE RUN IT INTO THE GROUND LIKE NOL?

Many Singaporeans are screaming with joy after learning that a former paper general has been appointed to head SPH because he is likely to take SPH down the same NOL path. Besides stating Ng “was previously CEO of shipping firm Neptune Orient Lines”, nothing else was mentioned about Ng’s achievements in the CNA article. Hmm .. which company hires a CEO with no past achievements?

SELFISH PARENTS MAKE SENDING KIDS TO CHILD CARE A CHALLENGE

But this does not excuse you to park indiscriminately while sending your kids to the centres. It may be for just a while, but the short time you were away, you might be blocking access to other vehicles who are trying to get out of the carpark, thus delaying someone who is heading out and beginning their day. And this also does not excuse parents who spend so much time at the sending off area for their kids, and stand around while waiting for your kid to have their temperature taken.

You might not be in any hurry to leave, but spare a thought for the next parent in line who is desperately trying to drop off their kid and heading off to work early. You are just taking up too much of their time. I don't know why people are now more selfish, always thinking about themselves. Please spare a thought for others
