The only way to love your boss and have your boss protect you, love you, inspire you, mentor you, motivate you, is to be your own boss.

That way there'll be no politics. Unless u create one.

If ever there was a budget laden with cheap gimmicks and full of wayang, this one is it.

Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat announced an ‘ang pow’ of up to $300 for every individual. The giveaway amounts to $700 million. This is against a collection of a surplus of $9.6 billion the previous year.
In other words, the government is giving back to taxpayers 7 cents for every excess dollar it collected in taxes and fees. For the government, this is a wonderful scheme.

The government had forecast that it would collect only a surplus of $1.9 billion but ended up collecting $9.6 billion instead – more than five times the originally estimated amount.

Such an absurdly discrepant amount reflects poorly on the Minister’s judgment, planning and execution of the country’s fiscal system. The hantam buta strategy of tax collection has resulted in the [email protected] wildly over-collecting from citizens.

To prevent an outcry of why it collected so much more revenue than it needed, the government tries to placate and distract Singaporeans by announcing the ang pow gimmick.

Bill Gates sat down with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres for the first time this week.

Gates is the founder of Microsoft and cofounder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and is the world's second-richest person with an estimated fortune of $91.8 billion, according to Bloomberg's index.

Gates officially became a billionaire when he was 31 — the youngest billionaire in history, at the time. But the boost to his bank account didn't send him on a spending spree, Gates said during his interview with DeGeneres.

"I don't have that many things that are extravagant taste, so it didn't change too much," Gates said, adding that his primary concern at the time was being able to pay his employees, many of whom had families to care for.

"So you didn't say 'Oh I'm going to buy a Porsche?'" DeGeneres pressed.

"I did — that I did," Gates said. "That was an indulgence, and then eventually for my travel I got a plane, which is a huge indulgence, so those are my two."

"So you have a Porsche and a plane and that's it?" she asked.

"In terms of crazy things, yes," he said. Gates has previously referred to his private jet as a "guilty pleasure" and "big splurge." It has been widely reported that he owns a Bombardier BD-700 Global Express with seating for up to 19 people — and a $40 million price tag.

US President Donald Trump has said arming teachers could prevent school shootings like that which left 17  people dead last week in Florida.

A staff member with a gun could end an attack "very quickly", he said.

Mr  Trump floated the proposal as emotional survivors of the 14 February massacre implored him to make sure it never happens again.

The Republican president also backed calls for improved background checks on gun buyers.
Other survivors meanwhile lobbied Florida lawmakers on gun control.

SINGAPORE — The Tripartite Workgroup (TWG) has come up with proposal to help boost freelancers’ Medisave savings, as they called on  the Government to study and potentially adopt a model where service  buyers pay a portion of their freelancers’ pay to their Medisave accounts.

This was among the seven ideas proposed by the TWG, which was formed last March, following a nine-month study of the challenges faced by freelancers amid the rise of the gig economy.

They include insurance to protect against the loss of income should they suffer injury at work, voluntary standards for written contracts, and greater support for them on matters such as pay  disputes.

In response, Second Minister for Manpower Josephine  Teo said in a letter to TWG that she has accepted the recommendations, which “will help shape the Government’s strategies” to address concerns  raised by self-employed individuals.

I very scare kenna like Adrian Tan Lee Guan .... :-[

http://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore/jail-man-who-had-sex-15-year-old

A married father of one agreed to pay a girl $1,600 for her companionship, and had sex with her even after she had told him she was 15 years old.

The girl, who is now 17, had come to know Adrian Tan Lee Guan through an online website known as Seeking Arrangement in November 2016.

The following month, he had sex with her multiple times and also asked her for oral sex.

Yesterday, the 45-year-old former business development director was jailed for 24 months after he admitted to three of five charges of sexual penetration of a minor.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Raja Mohan told the court the victim and Tan had exchanged contact numbers and started chatting through WhatsApp after she came to know him online

On Dec 15, 2016, he picked her up from her home and took her to the Pan Pacific Hotel for dinner, followed by drinks at the Capella in Sentosa.

They had oral sex at the pool and again in his car when he was taking her home.

Three days later, she met him at an HDB void deck to collect $1,600.

After handing her the money, he drove her to a multi-storey carpark in Hougang Street 91, where they had sex.

Seeking a sentence of at least 24 months' jail, DPP Raja Mohan argued that Tan had sexually exploited a 15-year-old girl and had no qualms about degrading her.

In his mitigation plea, Tan's lawyer Kannan SG said his client had made a "foolish mistake" of not refraining from going any further once he had found out her age.

He is undergoing divorce proceedings.
