    Just wondering why there's no real coverage or conversation on today's massive DDoS attack? Having to scour the other parts of the 안전놀이터 Internet for news and updates which I would have expected The Verge to automatically and masterfully cover. #wassup

    I am a senior citizen writing in to highlight the boorish behaviour of some senior citizens in our midst. 바카라사이트주소 I witnessed a male senior citizen demanding that a young woman give up her seat in the MRT for him. She was not even sitting on the reserved seat. But, he scolded her in front of everyone, saying she ought to give up her seat for an elderly person. 안전놀이터 She did do it, but she was not happy about it. In another instance, I was at a National Day carnival singing our National Anthem when an elderly woman tapped my arm and indicated grumpily that she wanted me to move aside for her to walk through. Earlier on, I had seen another elderly woman jump a queue. 인터넷카지노   Having a sense of entitlement and throwing one's weight around just because one is a senior is not good or wise behaviour. I hope the guilty seniors will reflect on this and change for the better.

    My family and I have enjoyed countless hours of fun at the very Marina Barrage that Lee Wei Ling's Papa, Lee Kuan Yew, dreamed of.  인터넷카지노 On one of those trips to the Barrage, my three daughters, my husband and I had the privilege of seeing her beloved Papa. It was about four years ago, on a quiet weekday afternoon during the school holidays, and he must have taken that opportunity to visit the Barrage to soak in its sights and sounds.  He was dressed in a light pink shirt and cream-coloured trousers, looking very happy as the buggy passed by families just like ours, mums and dads with young children in tow. We didn't dare approach the buggy but just like the other excited children (and parents!), waved frantically to him while calling out "Hello Mr Lee!". He acknowledged every one of us by happily waving back. 인터넷바카라 As he approached the end of the Barrage, Mr Lee met two groups of university students who had gone there in their convocation gowns to take the requisite graduation photos. How thrilled they must have been to see the founding father of Singapore, the man who had a vision for Singapore, who dreamed about building the very Barrage they were standing on, alight from his buggy and pose with them for a few pictures! He took the time to exchange pleasantries with these graduates and shook their hands.      We stood afar and envied the lucky group of fresh graduates. What a fitting start to their foray into the world! To be standing next to a man without whom their education would not have been possible. To start their careers after having been wished well by the first Prime Minister of their country. I know the memory of this experience will be indelibly etched in the minds of these students for years and years to come. The nation wept together for the passing of Dr Lee's Papa. My family sent him off in the pouring rain as the gun carriage made its final journey past City Hall. Everywhere triggered a memory of him. The raintrees flanking the East Coast Parkway, the riot of colours from the bougainvillea along that same expressway, little things here and there that became a reality after your Papa sowed the seeds of a dream. 카지노사이트 I am grateful to Mr Lee for dreaming big dreams for Singapore. Every Singaporean owes what we enjoy today from the vision he had for our fledgling nation. My children can continue to build upon their hopes and aspirations for their future to fulfil dreams of their own.  We prayed as a family last night before going to bed that we will work hard and contribute to the continued success in Singapore, even if in small ways. There is a hope and a dream for our future. Because her Papa believed in this country, fought hard for it, and never gave up on it even when the challenges seemed insurmountable.  We will strive to do the same.

    Over the years, the number of stray cats has declined significantly. 인터넷바카라 This is due to residents who have worked tirelessly to trap these cats for neutering. They are always on the lookout for newly abandoned cats and kittens, and they also speak to cat owners to advise them on neutering and keeping the animals indoors. 카지노사이트 Some of these residents have registered with the Cat Welfare Society so that they can help town councils mediate in cases where there are complaints about cats. Such unseen and unsung residents ought to be recognised for their community effort by the town councils. 인터넷카지노 All these residents ask for is that fellow residents be tolerant of the presence of cats, also called community cats, and that the town councils do not pander to a minority of complaining residents by culling these cats. As our little island gets rapidly concretised, such community cats add a softness to the harshness of our environment.

Multi-pronged approach to protect foreign domestic workers

Ms Stephanie Chok Juin Mei, from the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics, called for better protection for foreign domestic workers (FDWs) who are abused (Time to consider rights-based protection for abused maids, Forum Online; July 24). 인터넷카지노

Indeed, Singapore is committed to protecting the well-being and interests of all FDWs.

Our laws and regulations, which are reviewed regularly, provide strong and comprehensive protection to FDWs working in Singapore.

The Government takes all cases of abuse seriously, and thoroughly investigates all complaints.

During the investigation period, FDWs are provided with care and support, including shelter, food and medical treatment. 인터넷바카라

For FDWs who are willing and able to continue working, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) facilitates their employment, so that they can maintain an income.

 

Singapore also has a clear record of strict enforcement against abuses and exploitation of FDWs. This means errant employers are investigated and punished accordingly.

Anyone who abuses a FDW faces 1.5 times the maximum punishment under the Penal Code, and will be barred from hiring such workers in future.

Through multiple platforms, MOM informs and educates FDWs on their rights and responsibilities as well as on the various channels through which they can seek help, such as at the Settling-In Programme, which is mandatory for all first-time FDWs.

FDWs in distress can and do contact MOM, the police, non-governmental organisations, employment agencies, and their embassies for assistance. 바카라사이트주소

We urge FDWs and members of the public to swiftly report suspected abuse cases to MOM on 6438-5122 or the police on 1800-255-0000, dial 999 if urgent police assistance is required.

All information will be kept strictly confidential.
