  • 3 Things Adults in Singapore Pay For Due to Peer Pressure

When most people think of peer pressure, scenes of teenagers surreptitiously passing cigarettes around at HDB playgrounds flash through their minds.

Here are five ways peer pressure might be making you poorer, even at this ripe old age.

New Year's Evolutions

Have you resolved yet how your New Year will be? What is the spirit in which you're going to live your life this year?

Wherever you are in your life now, it's only temporary and life can get better. Change is a constant and we can use information about the Law Of Attraction to deliberately create changes that we desire. Decide to have something better.

Whoever created ”New Year's Resolutions”, well done I say. Extraordinarily good ideal I like to think of this opportunity for Considered Creation, while choosing feelings of eager anticipation, as, ”New Year's Intending".

What you focus on expands (a summary of the Law of Attraction). We attract the fears that our negative thoughts focus on. When we choose better feeling thoughts, life gets better.

Be grateful for what you have right now and you'll attract more to appreciate as 2015 unfolds.

Hang on to your hats, America.

And throw away that big, fat styrofoam finger while you’re about it.

There’s no easy way to say this, so I’ll just say it: We’re no longer No. 1. Today, we’re No. 2. Yes, it’s official. The Chinese economy just overtook the United States economy to become the largest in the world. For the first time since Ulysses S. Grant was president, America is not the leading economic power on the planet.

It just happened — and almost nobody noticed.

SIA’s In-Flight Internet Jacks Up S$1,520 Bill For Some Emails And A PowerPoint Doc

Vulcan PostBy Liang Hwei | Vulcan Post – Mon, Nov 17, 2014 10:30 AM SGT

 

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is a very popular airline, and according to its website, one of the most awarded. But with the recent news that a passenger was charged about S$1,520 for using the Internet during his flight from London to Singapore on Nov 12, it seems that there are some changes that SIA needs to make.

According to Jeremy Gutsche, a Canadian entrepreneur and CEO of Trendhunter.com, he racked up the impossibly high internet costs not by watching several high definition videos or downloading terabytes of files, but simply by the wonders of incredibly slow internet. He describes his experience of the flight on TrendHunter.Com.

“So what does it take to rack up $1200 of internet use? In my case, just 155 page views, mostly to my email. I know this because for the first time I counted up my page views to see where all the dollars went. I wish I could blame an addiction to NetFlix or some intellectual documentary that made me $1200 smarter. However, the Singapore Airlines internet was painfully slow, so videos would be impossible and that means I didn’t get any smarter… except about how to charge a lot of money for stuff. I did learn that.
