Lawyer M Ravi is going to officially discharge himself from representing five of the foreign workers accused of being involved in the Little India Riot last year citing that his resources are limited when working pro-bono cases.

ROY NGERNG: FALLING SICK, AND KNOWING WHERE OUR MONEY FOR HEALTH IS GOING TO

THEREALSINGAPORE 24 June 2014 - 6:59pm

I woke up, feeling a gnawing pain in my stomach. It was about 3am in the morning. I gave my stomach a rub and grimaced. The pain had woken me up from my sleep. I laid in bed, as the sheering pain came and went, and this repeated itself for the next hour. If this had happened while I was still employed, I would have gone to the hospital to seek emergency help. I would be able to claim from the company health insurance.


LIM SWEE SAY AT HIS NONSENSICAL BEST!

THEREALSINGAPORE 24 June 2014 - 6:52pm

ST headline “CPF money 100% safe: Swee Say” caught my eye. I knew anything related to Lim Swee Say, minister with zero portfolio with a fetish for DTF toothpicks, would be interesting. The more our government emphasises the ‘safety’ of CPF monies in the absence of transparency, the moreCPF members should worry. Second paragraph: “While many investments had been lost during the global financial crisis, he pointed out, CPF had still continued to earn interest then”.

EMPLOYEES WHO STAY IN COMPANIES LONGER THAN TWO YEARS GET PAID 50% LESS

THEREALSINGAPORE 24 June 2014 - 6:43pm

The worst kept secret is that employees are making less on average every year. There are millions of reasons for this, but we’re going to focus on one that we can control. Staying employed at the same company for over two years on average is going to make you earn less over your lifetime by about 50% or more. Keep in mind that 50% is a conservative number at the lowest end of the spectrum. This is assuming that your career is only going to last 10 years. The longer you work, the greater the difference will become over your lifetime.

VINCENT WIJEYSINGHA REBUTS THE CATHOLIC ARCHBISHOP'S ANTI-LGBT OPEN LETTER

THEREALSINGAPORE 24 June 2014 - 6:17pm

I see no grounds in Archbishop William Goh’s pronouncement on homosexuality for anything but contempt. Throughout its existence in Singapore, the church has raised its voice in support of little that Christianity has to offer the moral universe. Yet when it does, when one would expect it to affirm its teachings at Matthew 26:27 and in the first Letter to the Corinthians at Verse 13:13, it chooses one within a domain where it has no rights, given its own hideous record.

THE REAL PROBLEM ABOUT NATIONAL SERVICE IN SINGAPORE

THEREALSINGAPORE 24 June 2014 - 4:01pm

A number of my female friends, female colleagues and foreign colleagues have been complaining about Singaporean guys making such a big deal about National Service. Whenever it comes to talk about citizenship, privileges, sinking of roots into Singapore, the issue of National Service inevitably pops up. Some say Singaporean guys are whining, selfish and making a big issue out of this. Those who have been traveling say they have met Israelis, Taiwanese and Koreans, and they don't see these people complaining so much about NS as Singaporeans do.
