A netizen airs his frustration about the government's import of foreigners not just for menial jobs but for professional jobs that Singaporeans themselves want to do.

LOCAL PMET JOBS ADVERTISED ON FOREIGN JOB PORTALS, WHERE IS OUR PRIORITY?

A friend who has been unemployed for more than a year, after being laid off by a multi-national company (MNC) in Singapore despite sending more than a hundred applications alerted me to a job posting for IT applications analyst that was also posted on an Indonesian jobstreet website.

TAXI DRIVER'S ACT OF KINDNESS AMIDST THE TERRIBLE HAZE

Booked a cab and got this message. Act of Kindness amidst the terrible haze. Singapore also can be a pretty cool place if you ask me. The uncle apparently has been doing the same for his other customers. He declines to be named or given recognition cos he feels that it's nothing to make a big fuss of.

Lack of Cybersecurity Professionals Poses Threat to Singapore

Singapore’s ability to fight a rising threat from hackers is hindered by a skills shortage and lack of awareness among companies, according to the computer security firm that runs a state-supported training center. “We do see a lack of capability and capacity in skilled professionals, and that’s partly due to massive demand across the world that stretches an already small, existing pool of people,” Bryce Boland, Asia Pacific chief technology officer at Milpitas, California-based FireEye Inc.
