Online Job Portals Discriminate Against Elderly Applicants Who Are Not Digitally Savvy

We need to ensure that our elderly are not left behind in this digital world. An email was required to set up an account on the job website. Many of these elderly folks do not have any email address. For highest education level section, we could choose from multiple options. However, the lowest qualification we could pick was PSLE. Some of our senior citizens did not even take PSLE as they could have dropped out of school before that.

AGE IS NOT A FACTOR IN APPOINTMENT FOR TOP POSTS

We have the opposition MP questioning whether the appointment was constitutional because of his age. After all, an Article in the Constitution said the AG must leave the office when he turns 60, if he had hold the post for some time before that. Then we have the government saying the appointment was in accordance with the Constitution, with even a precedent being mentioned in the form of Judge of Appeal Chao Hick Tin, who was 63 when appointed as Attorney-General for a two-year term. Govt said age does not matter, what matters is the suitability of the candidate.

All good and well, but do we see this happening to the average Singaporean?

HELP! MY HUSBAND IS TURNING INTO A DIRTY OLD MAN

I WILL come right out and say it - I am married to a "dirty old man". One day, he left his handphone at home and I found several sexually explicit messages from some woman. He had been calling her and some other women very frequently. Also, he had been going out nearly every night and spending the occasional weekend away "for work". One day, a package of pills arrived for him. He claimed they were health supplements, but after checking, I found out they were sex stimulants. I was furious, frustrated and depressed and until today, I cannot bring myself to be in the same room as him or to even hear his voice. I can never forgive him or love him anymore.
