TOC CHIEF EDITOR: IS USE OF MINISTERIAL COMMITTEE FOR PRIVATE LEE AFFAIR JUSTIFIED?

Dr Chee Soon Juan was dismissed by National University of Singapore in 1993 for an alleged misuse of his research funds amounting to a sum of $226.00. and being accused of being dishonest. Despite explaining that he felt justified in using university funds to send his wife's dissertation because it had relevance to his own research work, Dr Chee was dismissed from his lectureship post. So looking at the Lee family saga, just based on the four Ministers heading the "secret committee" which took hours if not days of their time, how much public money was used to oversee this private affair? Despite the public interest as what some may defend for the ministers' involvement, PM Lee has described the affair as being a private dispute. So is it private or public?

IS AMERICAN PR COMPANY BEHIND PM LEE'S HUMBLING CLARIFICATION VIDEO?

Whoever is behind LHL's video has done a top class job. Plain background, tired-looking LHL with little make-up, displaying a little exasperation/frustration, a hint dishevelled... Making LHL look like just an ordinary son trying to honour his parents. Looks like the work of an American PR company. Top notch understanding of how social media works.

SKINNY S'PORE MAN SAYS HE WAS SHAMED & LOOKED DOWN FOR HIS BODY SIZE

I was wondering why aren't those who develop body image issues (psychological aspect or the obsession to gain weight) for being overly small and skinny not represented in local media at all? I have honestly been ridiculed with names like "slenderman" or "stick" and have been told that I am traditionally unattractive as people prefer guys who are meaty and are thus stronger. Heck, I've been looked down so much during my schooling life and in NS because of my skinny stature over my meatier counterparts just because it the norm for guys to be bigger to seem masculine.
