ARE THESE CAUCASIANS REAL FOREIGN TALENTS?

I know a Brit who runs an investment firm for private clients. Basically, it is a one-man office. Unfortunately, we belong to the same alma mater, but he is on the dark side. It was ugly, but it was an example of foreign trash, not talent. What makes this matter disgraceful is the people supporting this Brit are Singaporeans who are engulfed by greed. To give this Brit the benefit of the doubt, maybe he is talented to con. Shall I call him "Con Artist"?

PAP MINISTER K SHANMUGAM RESPONDS TO ANTON CASEY INCIDENT

I have been asked what I thought of Mr Anton Casey and his statements. Like many Singaporeans, I am terribly upset and offended by what he has posted. Deeply offensive, wrong, and unacceptable.

For the first time, I regretted employing him as our CFO.

Welcome, Anton Casey, to Social Media 101 (3 credits)

In response to this event, sites like mothership.sg have tried to be helpful, offering advice like “The moral of the story? Always set your Facebook account to private.” Great advice! Online privacy! Of course, that’s utterly impractical. Facebook is not for privacy. If you want privacy, you write your thoughts down in a hard copy diary, in a personal language you invented, with a complex cipher. Then you burn the diary. Then you eat the ashes.
