Singapore's Shame(The Numbers 666)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EcBFp4hemrI&feature=related

Ever since the days of Adam and Eve,
The Sepent has deceived Eve to give Adam the Apple of Knowledge,
And in the process snatched away the rights of this earth,
To be the Supreme ruler of this world,
Using money to control every inhabitant,
And Eve to control the Head of the Family,
Eventually the Head of the Church.
No one on this earth can escape his clutches,
He is the Supreme ruler of ALL,
He only fabricate Lies and more Lies,
To cover up the Truths.
The Truth is now uncovered,
HE doesn’t need to pretend anymore,
Of world domination and control,
His idea of Heaven is,
To make ALL his slaves,
The body HE has is now old and grey,
When the time comes HE  will move on from this world,
To another and HE will be even more powerful,
Showing signs from heavens,
And Wonders,
To deceive the very Elected people of God,
And submit to HIS throne.

Singapore – An Animal Farm Story?

By atobe:
July 21, 2011 at 6:13 am (Quote)

“Communism: Great Job, we should turn into communism if you want all Singaporean to share the wealth equally ! This is one of the corner stone for COMMUNISM ?Are you one of the graduate from the old school of Communism?”

You must have been in deep slumber not to realise that for the last 52 years, LKY has quietly morphed Singapore into becoming a Communist State – with himself being Stalin re-incarnated.
Only in a Communist State will all the essential and strategic enterprises be provided and owned by the State; and Singapore is a fine example of this model as seen in the pseudo-open economy with the State monopolising, or having their fingers (if not the entire hand) in every enterprises that serve Singaporean daily needs.
The irony of the Singapore Story is that when LKY stepped into the government in 1959, he inherited a bankrupt treasury from the outgoing Lim Yew Hock Government.
This desparate situation led LKY and the late Goh Keng Swee to discover that the fastest way of getting cheap revenue was by increasing the contribution – through a larger monthly quantum paid, as well as widen the net to cover the entire working population.
The original CPF scheme was started by the British Colonial Government as an alternative to the pension scheme – and non-mandatory.
CPF money was the central feature that drove Singapore’s development in the 1960s through the 1980s, and was the source for start-up capital of Government Owned Companies.
The money contributed into the CPF is from the sweat of Singaporeans earning the monthly wages.
It is obscenely immoral of the PAP government to use our money to build the infrastructures – as well as to capitalise the various Government Owned Companies that provide the essential services – and then make huge profits from the ever increasing prices to enrich the treasury for bigger and more ambitious plans without passing any financial benefit to Singaporeans who contribute into the CPF.
It is more than immoral when the PAP Government will pat themselves on their own backs to claim that they are talented, and deserving of their obscene Million Dollar Ministerial Annual Wages that turn them into multi-millionaires after two to five terms as Ministers – when all that they have done is to use Singaporeans’ saving to build the facilities and charge Singaporeans the atrocious prices for using these facilities that deplete our CPF and cash savings – while the political leadership enrich themselves.
The HDB estates are a fine example of this ‘DUPLICITY’ of the PAP – which use our CPF money to fund the HDB’s program, and priced the units so as to be able to return the loans to the CPF, and then deplete our CPF account through the high selling prices of HDB units – that result in the HDB transferring their huge profits to the Finance Ministry – (which transfer the surplus to GIC and Temasek Holdings).
The unkindest cut to all Singaporeans is that while the PAP Political Leadership will give themselves all the perks and financial gains to themselves – as Ministers and Civil Servants, or their cronies and family members in Government Linked Companies – they refuse to allow ordinary Singaporeans to have the same benefits.
The shameless PAP Political Leadership will see their bank accounts fatten with their obscene Minimum Wage of S$3-Million per year PER MINISTER – while also receiving a ‘LIFE TIME’ pension when they reach the ’statutory age of retirement’, PLUS a ‘LIFE TIME’ Class ‘A’ Hospital and Medical Care – all paid by money collected from Singaporeans.
Are the same perks – or even the minimum benefits – given to Singaporeans, who are denied any ‘Minimum Wage’, while seeing the ‘CONTINUOUS CHANGES in increasing the CPF Withdrawal Age’ that exceed the official retirement age, with Hospital and Medical Services being chargeable at marktet rates with ‘DUBIOUS’ subsidies supposedly given ?
The Animal Farm is a sad story of an “idealistic communal or socialist state” that went awry – which ironically parallel the Singapore Story with the PAP at the helm embarking on a Socialist-Democratic path during the 1950s, and the similar co-incidence in the story developing with little different in having the pigs in the PAP ruling over Singapore.
Is it any surprise that for more then 30 years – since Deng Xiao-ping visited Singapore in 1978 – the Peoples Republic of China has been enthusiastically studying the PAP model of monopolising the political, economic, cultural and social stage in Singapore ?
Surely, you must admit that if not for the parallel Communist methods employed by the PAP, China would not have bothered to learn from Singapore ?
If China’s population can enjoy the attention and benefits of the economic development of China – do you think that Singaporeans should not have the same benefits, more so when the development of Singapore has been and continue to be driven by our hard earned CPF money ?

A New World without Money

“Money is the root of all evil.”


Matthew 19:24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 



Matthew 19:29 – And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 


Matthew 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. 


Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 


Ephesian 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. 



Luke 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. 


—————————————————————————————–


Since the days of “The Towers of Babel”, mankind was originally of one race and one language, it is thru sin that God divided all mankind into different races and languages. One day, the use of technologies will bypass this barrier.
“The quickening of the spirit” – Poverty can only be eradicated when MONEY is no longer used on this world. The time when God is the provider of all our needs and we have the whole world resources to use to solve the world’s problems. The time starts NOW, and if you are ready to run a good race, start hoarding your riches in Heaven in the time to come, and contribute towards the effort of eradicating poverty in this world, “One step at a time.”
“many be called, but few chosen”
Many will be called, but only few chosen because you will have to give up everything to serve in His ministries, to prepare for His Kingdom to come.
“Heaven is a place on Earth.”
Are you ready for “The Wedding”? 
Are you invited and prepared to light your Candlestick to await the arrival of The Groom?

Look before you leap

Letter from Alex Lew and Leong Sze Hian
04:46 AM May 13, 2011

The authorities should examine the pros and cons of high-frequency trading

I REFER to the article “SGX woos High Frequency Traders” (May 10). There may be many disadvantages to promoting high frequency trading here. For a start, it may be a myth that high frequency trading increases market liquidity. High frequency traders often buy and sell the same security until the trade eventually reaches the hands of ordinary investors. They execute trades at sub-second speed, enabled by advance trading systems.

While they do minimise the bid ask spread in the market during ordinary times, during the market liquidation mode, algorithms generating these trades and the relevant trading volumes can suddenly disappear. High-frequency trading creates volume but not necessarily market liquidity. These volumes may disappear when liquidity is most needed during a market crash.

Secondly, funds making adjustments to their portfolios usually buy and sell in large amounts. In order to seek the best execution for investors, fund managers may usually split their orders into bite-sized orders.

The question is: What is stopping algorithms developed by high-frequency traders from seeing these orders, before otherwise normal market executions, and thus act to drive up prices and then sell them back to investors who wanted them in the first place?

Singapore is undoubtedly one of the leading financial hubs in the Asia Pacific. We would like to suggest that the authorities look further into the pros and cons of how we promote the high-frequency trading sector in Singapore, and conduct a thorough study on the actual benefits of liquidity through high-frequency trading and how investors may be disadvantaged.

We understand that Hong Kong and Australia may be developing the high-frequency business too. Hence, it may be a good opportunity for Singapore to think deeper and be a thought leader in this regard, and enhance Singapore’s development to be the leading financial hub in the Asia-Pacific.

Predictions Myths : Why the World will not End in 2011/2012.

My First Vision


I was given a insight of,
A fighter aircraft so advanced,
That everything was controlled by,
Hundreds of applications a second,
Targeting is via,
Using the eyes on the screen,
And the controls are,
Unlike anything I have ever seen,
This aircraft is powered,
Not by the jet engine,
And it achieved speeds of,
More than 10 times the speed of sound,
The aircraft is very silent,
But I am unable to tell,
What fuel it uses,
It is able to hover,
Bank and turn,
At a tremendous speed,
But it is not shaped,
Like a UFO.


My Second Vision.


I was very disturbed,
By my second vision,
And I get paranoid,
When someone else,
Is able to tell what I had seen,
It’s about Mind Control,
The manipulation of your senses,
The insertion of thoughts,
The hearing of voices,
Telling you to do the things you do,
Until you cannot tell what is real or not,
The introduction of virtual,
Can be abused,
Let’s guard against,
The corners of our mind.
Never believe what you hear or see,
Cause “signs and wonders”,
Can also be manipulated,
Deceiving the elected too.


My Third Vision.


In the age to come,
Man will be lord over space and time,
After the transformation,
In a shield of Light,
Travel will be but in a twightling of an eye.
He who has the wisdom,
In the coming of age,
The Angel of Light will also teach his people,
About aliens and UFO,
Travel between space and time,
Going into another dimension,
Denying the existence of God,
Hereby robbing you,
A higher ground,
Your rightful place in the universe.
All powers and principalities,
Are placed by God,
The training of the elect,
For a camel to enter,
The eye of a needle.


My Fourth Vision.


Is concerning myself,
The journeys I got to make,
My higher calling,
How every member of my family,
Will turn their back on me,
I have given up everything,
Very disappointed with my family,
The cares of the material world,
How shortsighted can they be,
It is but spiritual warfare,
And a mask has covered their eyes,
If given a lifeline I can turn,
The collapse of my business,
A mountain of debts,
That is artificially influenced,
Until I don’t have a single penny,
Even don’t have food to eat,
They think they can control me,
Each pushing their own agenda,
By restricting me access to money,
I will be forced to remain in Singapore.
You can use money to create lies,
But I am even greater than the elite,
Cause I know all the Truth.
I will leave my family,
And will do the most drastic,
I will turn my backs on them,
Becoming a citizen of another,
To another place far away,
Providing solutions to the world,
Solving the world’s problems,
Only then will everything be resolved,
And everything will be restored,
I will receive a hundred fold more.


My Fifth Vision.


And God showed me a 3D Matrix,
In it contained,
All the information in the world,
You can specify in the Matrix,
Many ways to display the info,
But it will always be in a cube.
It supports multitasking,
Many screens can be opened,
The greatest data mining tool,
A search engine so advanced,
Data can be displayed,
Even links and associations,
In hundred of layers deep,
What is needed can be put aside,
The useless will be discarded,
To find every solution and answers,
Closest to the Truth.

“Heaven will be a place on Earth.”
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of HEAVEN: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in HEAVEN: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in HEAVEN. – Matthew 16:19
And I saw a new HEAVEN and a new earth: for the first HEAVEN and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. – Revelation 21:1
And [some] of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make [them] white, [even] to the time of the end: because [it is] yet for a time appointed. – Daniel 11:35


In the Future, Man will lord over Space and Time,
What u do today will decide your outcome tomorrow,
The World War 3 predicted by many will not come,
If we all gather round our leaders,
And sign the Non-proliferation treaty of Nuclear Weapons,
And destroy each and every nuclearhead in the world.

Being there, even when you're not

by Esther Ng
05:55 AM Jan 27, 2011

SINGAPORE – Imagine walking into a Starbucks outlet here and being able to chat with customers or a friend at an outlet in Seattle through a wall-sized display, as if you were sitting just across from them.

They appear as three-dimensional as they would be if they were in the Singapore outlet. The only thing you cannot do is shake hands with them.

It may sound like stuff straight out of the movies, except that virtual communication can be commercially available in as soon as five years, according to some scientists. And Singapore will now have a firm role to help make this a reality.

Yesterday, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill) announced the setting up of a $23-million research facility here that will develop technology called BeingThere.

This technology gives the illusion that people from afar are in the same common space and creates a feeling of “natural interaction” and being there.

Thirty-two scientists from the three universities will work together at the BeingThere Centre to change the way people communicate – using interactive real-time 3-D communication known as telepresence and telecollaboration – the same way change came with the telephone or email.

There will be four prototypes of telepresence systems.

For instance, if you are too busy to attend a meeting you could send an “autonomous Avatar”. “This virtual human will be able to recognise the real participants in the meeting, register what is being said and report to the absentee after the meeting,” said NTU’s Institute for Media Innovation director Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann.

Besides the “autonomous Avatar” and room-based telepresence systems, the scientists will be working on a roving display that brings a 3-D representation of a person in a distant location to a place that can be controlled by both users.

In other words, like a hologram in a glass panel. The display is semi-transparent and will give the illusion of the other person being present in a room, laboratory or hospital.

The fourth project will, literally, make the film Avatar a reality by seeking to create a mobile robotic mannequin that acts as a remotely located “avatar”, which can freely navigate a distant environment and takes on the appearance and gestures of its far-away human host.

This technology could improve communication, reduce the carbon footprint, circumvent travel delays such as extreme weather conditions that ground aeroplanes and speed up decision-making, said NTU provost Bertil Andersson.

He added that telepresence has “immense potential” for the healthcare sector – for doctors and professionals to respond faster and treat patients accurately from a distance.

Of the four prototypes, roving hologram displays are “closest” to being commercialised, said UNC-Chapel Hill’s Professor Henry Fuchs.

ETH Zurich’s Professor Markus Gross added: “There are optical LEDs, new generations of displays in research labs of large manufacturers like Samsung and Panasonic, and five years down the road, these displays will become ubiquitous.”

In the next 10 years, telepresence is expected to become a multi-billion-dollar market as broadband networks and superfast computer chips are developed to transmit and process intensive streams of digital information.

What is telepresence?
by Esther Ng
Telepresence is a set of interactive technologies that allows real-time 3-D communication, giving users the feeling they are present at another location and creating the effect that they are.

This is done through geometric modelling, high-definition 3-D video and audio capture as well as display technologies and robotics to simulate a face-to-face encounter.

Applications for telepresence include: New avenues for distance teaching and learning; closer communication between family members living in different parts of the world; virtual mobility for the disabled; greater work interactivity in multinational companies with multiple offices; a reduction in business travel; and a smaller carbon footprint.
