Hello #Greenpeace
Where are you when you are needed most to make a stand of deliberate #forest fire here in Southeast Asia? It seems like Asian governments cannot insist Indonesian Asia Pulp & Paper from its action of forest clearing the old fashion way. This is the same company that defaulted billion during the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997. The principals behind this company has no consideration of its creditors then and has not consideration of the people who live in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Actions such as sanction should be put on this company, or stiff fine for its action should be imposed on the company. 
Singapore’s largest supermarket chain NTUC FairPrice said it would pull toilet paper and other products sourced from Asia Pulp & Paper from its shelves after the company was among those named responsible for forest fires that have engulfed Southeast Asia in hazardous smoke.

Really? I can't believe this came from his mouth. For the longest time, the Japanese government had been denying their part in WW2 to the extend of frauding historical records. 
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday expressed "utmost grief" for the suffering Japan inflicted in World War Two, but said that future generations of Japanese should not have to keep

A good article, and a typical textbook case study of how inefficiency built overtime in a state-owned subway operator - from human resources issue, outdated KPI where there is no indicator for measuring reliability for commuters, and negative economic and social value creation.
By Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss Yesterday (7 July 2015) saw an extensive MRT breakdown: the North-South and East-West lines were disrupted for hours. An estimated 250,000 commuters were affected by wha...

There are a few populations in the world where back pain hardly exists. One woman thinks she has figured out why, and she's sharing their secrets. Have Americans forgotten how to stand properly?

While the world's attention was focused on the lost of Lee Kuan Yew, Japan quietly launch the aircraft carrier. It is concerning as an unrepentant nation that started WW2 is in control of another serious weapon.

香港政府在取逮僭建認真雷聲大雨點小。几平是虎頭蛇尾。難怪人人以身试法。基本上這几年人權高過法規。這個社會可說是在退步了。

Thursday's final count was 28 against, 8 in favor – out of a legislature comprised of 70 members. What happened to the other 34 lawmakers?

Hi Google.. is this true?  20% of creative time is a myth?
I posted a fun exclusive to Business Insider the other day. The news was that one of Silicon Valley's most famous human-resources policies may not actually exist, according to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. Almost since its beginning, Google has had a well-known policy called "20% time." ...
