The Answer Is Not Known Until The Day of “CRUCIFIXION ” … And Moment of Truth

….. Amen

Coffeeshop old folks have debated this subject till (all) Cows Come Home and still without a clue.
Some say, “Hey he might be a prophet and therefore God has to apologize to him. Or else nobody dare to say such thing in public.”

Some rebuke,  “Come on, look carefully and do you really think he’s a prophet? Do you know that there’s no such rich prophet in history of mankind!  Staying at Sentosa luxurious condominium and why the hell a prophet’s wife spent lavishly and lived  in Hollywood high-end estate using church fund?”

A wiseman says, “When is the alleged church fund scam to resume trial again?”

Media report extract

By:  Lazy  Old Folk

She made it to semi-final but her timing of 58:94 is way too slow to continue in the high standard arena (swimming pool).

Tao Li is competing at the World Swimming Championship in Barcelona. 

2016 Olympic Games?
Some old folks dun think it is a right bet at all, not even miracle.

The republic needs to groom younger swimmers of greater potential. As the international standards have been raised much higher.

Not Just Integrity Per Se, It Is  About A Complete Set  of Public Service Value System

Singapore govt has come forward to stress its resolve in fighting corruption and upholding integrity in the public service at all level, on the 136,000-strong public service population.

    Above:  This measure could have been done since day one of casinos opening as in the case of Macau, where all civil servants are banned from visiting casino unless on official duties.

As reported, there’s no room for complacency as this was stressed by the Civil Service chief.

Media report extracts

By:  中国阿伯

新加坡反贫贪局高官(国内所谓的黑面包公)竟然是一个”贪婪包公“!自己在崗位上吃掉公家一佰七十多万元!可悪之极。

听说狮城一向崇向于高薪养廉作法。。。此案確买令人十分不解?
据说巳经不只一次犮生”吃銭包公”和高薪酬公务员贪污的亊件了。

可是,如果不给超高薪,难道此类案件会更多?那么公务员系统管理, 监督和行政效率以及更重要的民事服务崇高价值观又何以確立?
真是见仁见智。。。

This Is Rare & Very Serious Case As Viewed By The Authority

–  A total of S$1.76m is involved!
–  A govt senior officer gambled at casino!  (We thought there’s regulation on prohibition of civil servants visiting casino?)
–  How could the Bureau chief did  not know such a huge sum been misappropriated and it’s system not raising red flag over a 3 to 4 years period?

We believe the  truth will soon be unveiled because in Singapore corruption cases are dealt with swift action and transparency.

Divergent In Media Ethics ? Boston Bombing Photos

Media extracts

… “Sgt. Sean Murphy, who said Rolling Stone’s portrait of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Boston bombing killer) glamorize ‘the face of terror’,  releasing his own images showing him bloody and dishevelled,  with a sniper’s riffle laser sight trained on him.”

The news magazine Rolling Stone needs dramatical shots on its cover for the issue to sell in larger volume, purely a commercial act.

While the police photographer Sgt. MURPHY speaks from his heart … and he has reason to feel angry.

In this context, how would one judges on its morality? And if the Rolling Stone cover ethical?

Prime News Of Singapore – The Bloggers & Preachers


media extracts of Lioncity newspapers

Dated 19 July 2013

#1 –  The Despicable Bloggers (Malaysia)

These people just go for fame but at the same time they are insensitive to the general feelings of public/society.  Apparently the guy in red shirt was a Asean Scholar studied Law degree at the  National University of Singapore. His scholarship was terminated last year after he had posted sexual blog-posts on the Internet.

#2  –  The Preachers

These people preach good things all the time… but, the alleged case seems to show the opposite. Apparently this is the biggest church fund scam in the history of Lioncity, before and after its independence. The trial is still in progress.
