LESS THAN HALF PIONEER YALE-NUS GRADS GETS JOB OFFER

I refer to the Straits Times article today, which carries the headline "Nearly half of Yale-NUS pioneer grads have job offers". You read it once, without putting any thoughts to it, it sounds nice. Then you realise that this means more than half of the Yale-NUS pioneer grads actually have no job offers.

I know the media wants to make this sound nice, and that liberal arts are gaining a foothold in Singapore, but if more than half still have not got job offers, then we are not there yet in acceptance of liberal arts graduates. Article did go on to say another one-fifth have received offers to pursue graduate studies. This means the number of graduates without any concrete future is still much more than other graduates. And the article says observers indicates that employers here believe in the value of a liberal arts education, though it is still viewed by many as a "minority" option.

WHY DO PAP DISCRIMINATE SINGLE MOTHERS WHEN THEY PAY TAXES TOO?

They pay tax in the form of GST every time they buy something. They add to the coffers of the Temasek linked companies everytime they buy something or use a service. A portion of their wages too are contributed to the CPF funds which are in turn invested by our Government and kept in reserve. Their sons will serve National Service and their children will contribute to society. Why are they discriminated against when it comes to housing?

From the story I got from my girl, she was scootering along reaching the head of the bridge opposite to crossing over to McDonald when she noticed 3 young Indian boys just behind her playing with a fishing rod. She took a moment right at the head of the bridge to stop to look out for the brother and father where they were when she feel a hit right onto her right cheek.
