“An Israeli Lesson” Seah Chiang Nee @ Littlespeck, “Few are assessing Hezbollah’s missile war on Israel with greater interest than Singapore.”

“People Don’t Ask for a Lot” Metrosexual Me, “But, tell me, how is a typical Singaporean undergrad in Engineering going to get decent grades with all overwhelming numbers of foreign scholars/students?”

“Pay More, but Not Across the Board Please” KTM, “… the KTM is against MOE’s latest move to increase the pay for teachers across the board. While it true that teachers do not enjoy particularly high salaries, it is also true that the pay ain’t particularly bad.”

“Today is Restricted” Singapore Life and Times, “I was quite disturbed yesterday when my 12 year old son was denied the Today newspaper.”

“Singapore Documentary: Should I Stay or Should I Go?” Kevin Lim produces a video about Singaporean students and whether they would prefer to stay in the U..S. or return to Singapore. Besides the video, he also summarises reasons for staying and leaving. (Theory is the reason)

“The Branding of the Lion” Coffee Banana, “It appears that the Singapore Government has been bitten by the branding bug. It is not enough that we are Uniquely Singapore, the Garden City and the Hub of Everything. It was reported in the Straits Times (2nd September 2006, Saturday, Article Titled: Wanted a Single Brand for Singapore) that the Government of Singapore has decided Singapore needs One Unified Universal Brand. A brand flexible enough to promote Singapore in the Tourism Arena and gets scientist to work in our Life Sciences labs.” (Cobalt Paladin)

“All That Flux about Population and Immigration” Xtralicious, “Know what? I am so sick and tired of this immigration and citizenship loyalty hooha that the whole world that is Singapore is going on and on about.” (Cobalt Paladin)
