YALE-NUS GIVES MDA THE MIDDLE FINGER

Despite a national ban in Singapore, Yale-NUS is pressing ahead with its plans to show a film that has been deemed by the Singaporean government as a threat to the country’s security. The banning of the film quickly raised ire amongst Yale professors, including longtime Yale-NUS critics including English professor Jill Campbell and political science lecturer Jim Sleeper, who characterized the ban as a threat to freedom of expression at a college stamped with Yale’s name. The ban, as well as Lewis’ reassurance about the film’s screening at Yale-NUS, comes on the heels of Yale President Peter Salovey’s full-throated defense of free expression during his freshman address in August.

WHY I LEFT CITY HARVEST CHURCH

“Give and you shall be given back ten fold, a hundred fold, a thousand fold,” he would quote from the bible. My tithes and offerings had to be going somewhere, and if it was used to finance Ho’s music career, I was none the wiser. Not that it mattered. To me, and to many believers I knew, we were giving unto God. If the person who managed the finances was corrupt, it didn’t matter. What mattered was what I know to be good and true.

WHY SOME PIONEERS ARE UNHAPPY WITH THE PIONEER GENERATION & CHAS MEDICAL CARDS

Many Chas holders belong to the Pioneer generation and there was full of high expectation on 1st September for this group because they were told of the benefits they are going to get when they receive the Pioneer card. It was all over the media and TV. So many postponed their clinic appointments to September to take advantage of the Pioneer card. Many clinics were packed on that September day with many pioneer generation patients. Pioneer card holders have higher subsidy per visit and higher limit of use per year than Chas card holders. Then came the disappointment. On 1st September many pioneers have their high expectations dampened when they discovered that the value of the Pioneer card was not what they had expected?

NUS LAW DON WALTER WOON & PROF TOMMY KOH CROSS SWORDS OVER ANTI-GAY SEX LAW

The subject of universal human rights took a local turn at a university forum on Tuesday night, with two top lawyers disagreeing over whether an anti-gay sex law should be done away with. National University of Singapore (NUS) law don Walter Woon said he was in favour of repealing the law because of what he sees as a "constitutional problem". NUS Centre for International Law chairman Tommy Koh agreed that the provision should in principle be done without, but said abolishing it was "not so simple" given potential political pushback. A majority of Singaporeans were against a repeal going by opinion polls, Prof Koh said.

PIONEER GENERATION CARD IS OVERHYPED, IT ONLY SAVED MY MOTHER $3.20 IN MEDICAL FEES

Pap gov even did a tranny tv ad to praise the PG card everyday. I thought it really will help the pioneer generation cope with the medical cost. But when I saw my mum’s medical bill for her regular checkup at poly clinic, I realize the card is overhyped. Her medical bill is around $76. The PG card only gives her a miserable discount of $3.20, less than 5% discount. My mum told me the pg card only cover the consultation fee, not the prescription. So it is not a wonder card as what pinky had mentioned in the ndp rally.
