https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/lifestyle/elle-darby-youtube-hotel-dublin-banned-9882740


A hotel in Dublin, Ireland, has banned all social media influencers and bloggers from its establishment. 
"I have taken the decision to ban all bloggers from our hotel and cafe. If any of you attempt to enter our premises from now on, you will be ejected," said the owner of The White Moose Cafe and Charleville Lodge Paul Stenson in a scathing Facebook post last Wednesday (Jan 17).

This comes after British YouTube personality and social media influencer Elle Darby sent an email to the establishment asking for a free five-day stay at the hotel the weekend before Valentine's Day. In exchange, she promised to recommend the hotel to her 87,000 YouTube subscribers and 76,000 Instagram followers.

Mr Stenson took to Facebook to call out Ms Darby, accusing her of not having "much self-respect and dignity" to ask for free accommodation. 

"If I let you stay here in return for a feature in your video, who is going to pay the staff who look after you?" he added.





wow ..... the sense of entitlement in this social influenza is strong .....

I will borrow his line and ask .... where is your "self-respect and dignity" to all social influenzas from now on .... tee hee hee hee ..... :P

http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/singapore-must-accept-slower-rate-labour-growth-says-cbank-chief

Slower rates of labour force growth in Singapore are unavoidable, the head of the Republic's central bank head said on Monday (Jan 22), and any attempt to completely offset it by increasing foreign workers is "neither feasible nor desirable".

Singapore faces a problem common to many developed societies, that of an ageing resident population, but has tightened restrictions on foreign workers in recent years.

"We must accept a lower rate of labour force growth," said Mr Ravi Menon, managing director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), in a speech on the impact of Singapore's ageing population on its economy.

"The underlying demographic slowdown is so severe that it is neither feasible nor desirable to try to offset it completely through immigration of foreign workers."

Mr Menon noted that gross domestic product growth is basically the sum of productivity growth and labour force growth, and added that increasing productivity will be vital for Singapore's economy going forward.

He added, however, that having zero labour force growth would not be optimal.

"Productivity growth is going to be a much more important source of our overall economic well-being than merely increases in headcount in the labour force," Mr Menon said, in reply to a question from the audience.

He noted productivity improvements are also tied to knowledge embedded in the labour force.
"I'm not sure we can afford to have zero labour force growth," he said.

According to government data, the number of Singapore citizens and permanent residents aged 15 and over in the labour force increased by 1.1 per cent in the year to June 2016, the slowest growth rate in three years.

On the ageing population, he also said that Singaporeans have to address the "existential" question of how to use taxes to support those less well off in society.

"The ability of societies to sustain dynamism... and deal with dislocations is going to depend on governments' fiscal response. On top of that we have the effects of demographics and the population ageing," Mr Menon said at an Institute of Policy Studies event.

"The willingness of a society...to pay in taxes to support those less well off is quite critical. You see this in the small European countries and they do this quite well. And I think this is one of the existential questions we have to face."

Singapore has some of the lowest tax rates in the world but government officials have signalled the need for higher taxes to support future social spending and infrastructure needs. Changes may be unveiled as soon as the Feb 19 Budget, analysts say.

A survey published last week showed Singaporeans were not in favour of higher taxes to support their elderly and would prefer the country to tap its national reserves to deal with future social spending increases. REUTERS




we need more qualified FT in Singapore to support rentals and uplift property prices so as to ensure property prices are on a sustainable trajectory.

without healthy rentals to sustain retirees,  they will depend  more on government largesse.

this is detrimental to the tax-paying base like corporates and tax-paying individuals who have to pay more to sustain government subsidies .....

They should reinstate St.John's penal colony and build schools for such recalcitrant students. No cellphone towers and truly isolate them until they come round to better themselves and contribute to society !  >:(
