BANGKOK: King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, the world’s longest-reigning monarch before his death, died on Thursday (Oct 13) at the age of 88. The only king most Thais today have ever known, he reigned over the country for 70 years, after succeeding his elder brother King Ananda Mahidol on Jun 9, 1946. Survived by his wife Queen Sirikit, 84, the popular monarch leaves behind a son, Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, and three daughters, Princess Ubol Ratana, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and Princess Chulabhorn Walailak. At the age of 18, Bhumibol became the ninth monarch of the Chakri dynasty, or King Rama IX. His reign came at a critical time when Thailand was evolving as a constitutional monarchy. Emerging as the single unifying force of the nation, King Bhumibol brought about a revival of the institution which had been on a path to obsolescence. According to the Constitution, the monarch was the head of state and commander of the Thai armed forces, but held … [Read more...] about King Bhumibol Adulyadej (1927 – 2016)
SINGAPORE: In early October this year, Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower (MOM) charged a local employment agency , with “insensitive advertising” of foreign domestic workers (FDW). The agency was found to have placed advertisements on the online marketplace Carousell which is typically used to buy and sell new and second-hand goods. MOM has charged the agency with similarly treating FDWs as commodities that can be bought and sold. This is not the first time that local employment agencies have been accused of treating FDWs as commodities. In 2014, in the wake of an Al Jazeera report that some agencies were making some perform mundane household chores in the display windows of these agencies’ offices in neighborhood shopping malls, MOM issued new regulations clarifying that such practices were “unacceptable.” This commoditising of FDWs is just one of many different ways that employment agencies and employers in Singapore treat these migrant workers. And it may not even be … [Read more...] about Commentary: Instead of robots or commodities, why not treat foreign domestic workers like fellow human beings?
In 1989, I was attached to a public relations company as part of an internship programme. I remember printing flyers during lunch, using the fancy office laser printer. At that time, mere mortals only used what was referred to as a dot matrix printer. The noise would make a cat jump, but it did its job. I was also introduced to computers around then, spending endless hours at the computer lab of the Faculty Of Arts And Social Sciences in NUS (National University Of Singapore), typing out essays for courses which no longer accepted hand-written submissions.

Prince Harry said separation from the British royal family had been very difficult for him and his wife Markle, according to excerpts from the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey released on Sunday. "My biggest concern was history repeating itself," Harry said, apparently referring to his mother Princess Diana, who was hounded by the British press and died at age 36 in a car crash in Paris. "I'm just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side," Harry said. "Because I can't begin to imagine what it must have been like for her (Diana) going through this process by herself all those years ago." "It's been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other," he added. US broadcaster CBS network released two brief clips from Winfrey's interview of the couple, the first that the couple has given since moving to California last year. The full interview is scheduled to air on March 7 on CBS and the following day in the … [Read more...] about Prince Harry calls split from British royal life ‘unbelievably tough’
