DUBAI STOCK MARKET CRASHES WITH THE GENERAL INDEX DOWN BY 25%

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 June 2014 - 5:02pm

Dubai’s stock market is in the midst of an epic crash. After falling 6.7 percent on Tuesday, the biggest drop since August, Dubai’s largest stock index, the DFM General Index, is down 25 percent from its peak in May. A sell-off that steep usually presages a nice buying opportunity, but it looks as if Dubai stocks might have further to fall. Relative to other emerging market stock indices, Dubai’s remains overvalued.

SHORT FILM: PURPLE LIGHT

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 June 2014 - 4:36pm

This short film from Singapore is about an army recruit falling in love with his buddy. This might be an interesting video for readers to watch amidst today's Pink Dot. A story of love, brotherhood and the expression of oneself. A commonly sung song; a commonly said phrase.

LGBT - FACTS, EVIDENCES AND A HISTORY LESSON

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 June 2014 - 3:01pm

I am writing in with regards to the LGBT issue with some facts and a history lesson and hopefully let you people decide on your stand. You see, 23 years ago, when I was in my Primary school days and if I see a group of classmates making fun of gays, I would join in. I would probably be the worst asshole of them all. But today, I know better and I want to do my part in making things right. In fact, just this month I made a police report about a Christian that goes to church regularly, is married with kids, who has cheated my money and caused so much problems/misery to my life. I was almost homeless and suicidal at that time.


STRAITS TIMES ARTICLE 9 DECEMBER 1983: THE DOLLARS AND CENTS OF CPF

THEREALSINGAPORE 28 June 2014 - 2:41pm

This article appeared in the Straits Times in 1983 when interest rates on Singaporeans' CPF contributions was 6.5% (the highest ever) compared to the 2.5% today, and higher than the 5.25% members received in 1965. In an easy to understand question and answer format, the article lays out the fundamental objectives of the CPF and why CPF contribution amounts for employers and employees increased from 10% in 1955 to 46% in 1983 (Part of the answer - to provide "a cheap source of finance for the government. The CPF purchases government stock and the government loans the money cheaply to the HDB.").
