Daily Lessons from Life 20-21 October 2017 - Institute of Higher Learning's roles?

"SINGAPORE: Singapore has seen success when it comes to encouraging lifelong learning, but this success can be further enhanced by tapping on institutes of higher learning, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) Ong Ye Kung said on Thursday (Oct 19).

Speaking in Abu Dhabi where he was supporting young Singaporeans at an international skills competition, Mr Ong said that such institutes were in a strong position to help train workers."

Thought there was a problem in that the universities were not producing the graduates of skills n knowledge required by the industry as they were not keeping abreast of the specific needs of the industries. 

Now the situation has changed so drastically?

Daily Lessons from Life 19 October 2017 - Too light the sentences for causing death?

"Duo who fatally assaulted Frenchman outside Orchard Towers jailed



Any reason the initial charge was changed? Who decide on what charges to be brought to the court?

Senseless killing of a human life is worst that a premeditated murder right? At least there is a "good reason" for the murderer to kill the murdered, however warp it may be!

Let's not go soft with killers lest it us exploited by more senseless killing.

The recent case of the Golden Miles complex senseless assault by that young man may be the start of more senseless assault that may lead to death as the offenders r embolden by the light sentence of "Sorry he/she is DEAD but i honestly did not 
meant to kill when I kicked (n I m not a footballer) n stomped on his/her head repeatedly"!!!

Instead any would be offender should be put on notice that when u kill unintentionally u r responsible for a "murder". That a human life is lost!! And u will pay with YOUR life!! Period!!

ps: the Judge thinks it is cute to say: u r a footballer n should go kick a ball instead of someone's head? (liberal interpretation by me)!! WTF?? (What the fish!!)

We can go through many excuses n categorized them to find out what are the top 5 reasons that r valid reasons n not just "excuses" to devise a list of actions to rectify the mistakes.

Hopefully, the next time we discussed will be abt the progress of the rectification steps!!
