ROY NGERNG: HOW WE JUDGE AND REACT TO AMOS REFLECTS OUR SOCIETY

THEREALSINGAPORE 17 April 2015 - 11:17am

I met with Amos Yee at a gathering last week. I did not know what to expect prior to meeting him. There have been so many judgments about him, so I was thinking to myself what kind of person I would meet. But then I realised, why I am even asking these questions?

SHOULD MOE PROVIDE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS FOR TRAINEE TEACHERS WHO DON'T PASS?

TRS 17 April 2015 - 10:12am

The recent news of a father who had to resort to crowd funding to pay for his daughter's scholarship after her she was terminated from her course is putting the spotlight once again on scholarships in Singapore and the Ministry of Education (MOE). Some questions might need to be asked. If this qualifications would turn out not to be as useful if one does not go on to be a teacher, can the MOE cater for other options, to allow a student who does not pass the course to have another alternative job, such as taking on a administrative or planning role at the MOE? But the scholarship amount is another issue that has also turned some heads. At $69,000, this is a hefty amount.

If you haven't heard, Singtel has just launched its WhatsApp/Skype competitor. It's called Wavee, and as bad as it sounds, it's still a pretty decent app, even though at the end of 3 months, Singtel will probably start charging for extra data usage costs. Wavee comes after years of bitching about how Singtel can't earn any money from calls and SMSes anymore because everyone is using messenger apps.

THEREALSINGAPORE 17 April 2015 - 9:18am

The minimum wage is the lowest wage an employer is allowed to pay. Although a federal minimum wage is set, the individual states can choose to use the federal wage or make their own laws. States such as Washington and Illinois choose to go above the federal minimum, and states such as Alabama and Louisiana choose not to have a minimum wage at all.
