Three years ago, I received news that many Singaporeans face and fear. My father has been diagnosed with cancer. Together as a family of just 3, we fought through his debilitating condition. He faces a tumor growing into the nerves in his shoulder which caused him extreme pain. He explained that it feels like his hand is constantly on fire that cannot be relieved. But as time passed on, it only seems as we are fighting a losing battle....
This is a follow up post on workplace bullying done by S. By now, my readers will know that the focus of my blog posts have been about education (occupational hazard, admittedly) so I hope to shed some light into the issue of bullying in Singapore schools. I will discuss the 4 types of bullying I have observed. Type 1. Students bullying Students, Type 2. Teachers bullying Students / Abuse of Teacher Authority, Type 3. Parents/Students bullying Teachers, Type 4. Principals/Head of Departments/Teachers bullying other Teachers.
I chanced upon the Transitioning website this morning while searching for more information on unfair termination towards pregnant women. I’m seeking for more information and outlets to address a very upsetting event earlier this year. I sincerely hope that you will be able to advise me or direct me to the relevant parties. In summary, I was terminated in January 2013, a couple of days before the end of my three-month probation period on the account that I wasn’t performing to the expectation of the bosses.
That the Government prefers the “moral suasion” approach when it comes to tackling workplace discrimination and shaping employers’ mindsets comes as no surprise — this is in line with the perception that the Government does not want to “burden” businesses with too much legislation as they are creating jobs for Singaporeans, else they may pack up and go to a neighbouring country. While this may be applicable in the early days of the country’s development, times have changed.
Yes,yes Aunties’s not a cock but she sure behaved like Khaw and Dr Teo. All these three, and the other supporting speakers didn’t try to bother to explain what the facts were. They juz tried to slime the other side, hoping that some mud would stick. No one drew blood. I won’t bother to go into detail critcising what the PAPpies said as Sg Daily has done a gd job over the last few days providing links to a critique of the PAP’s position and its attacks on the WP.
The debate over alumni priority for primary school admission overlooks the issue of whether the individual alumni associations reinforce the rich-poor divide by erecting high financial barriers to entry. While the alumni associations of reputable schools like CHIJ (Toa Payoh) charge a membership fee of just $100, those of Anglo-Chinese School (Primary), Singapore Chinese Girls' School and Raffles Girls' Primary cost $500 or more to join; Nanyang Primary charges a whopping $1,000.
The resignation of the Singapore Kindness Movement's Singa The Lion last week may have prompted an outcry from netizens, but another mascot has been making waves online too. Water Wally, the national water agency PUB's water-droplet mascot, has been drawing mixed reactions for a music video which was posted online on April 15.
I've always regarded CHC as a family. But recently, I had a tough question. What IF Pst Kong & co were indeed found guilty of conspiring to move millions from the building fund around to support Sun's career? I was asking myself, whatever good intention there may be, does that justify the means (ie. technically "investing" building fund into Sun's singing career)?
Six Church leaders of the City Harvest Church that preached prosperity gospel are in court to defend against charges of misappropriation of the Church’s building fund to the tune of $50.6m. It was alleged that $24m were funneled to support the singing career of Ho Yeow Sun, wife of the Church’s founding pastor Kong Hee. The money was invested in a sham bond investment fund. Another $26.6m was misused to cover up this sham investment.
