Malaysian couples who want to marry can find out if they are a good match by taking a compatibility quiz, said Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Hannah Yeoh. She said the government was mulling introducing an online compatibility quiz for singles and dating couples.

This is to help prevent their marriage from ending in divorce. "The couples can take part in the quiz voluntarily to determine their personality traits," Ms Yeoh told reporters at Parliament lobby on Tuesday (July 9). She said the quiz was not confined to couples, but could be done by young people wishing to know more about their personality traits. Marriage counsellors usually conduct personality trait tests. Earlier, in Dewan Rakyat, Yeoh said that married couples between 30 and 34 years old suffer the highest … [Read more...] about Malaysia mulls compatibility quiz for couples who want to wed
SINGAPORE: During Chinese New Year last year, retiree Kenneth Tang wanted to visit his sister-in-law at her home in Upper Bukit Timah, in a relatively secluded area he was unfamiliar with.Instead of getting driving directions with a few taps of his smartphone, the 64-year-old sat in his living room, put on his reading glasses and studied the route on the pages of his 2018 street directory.“I think GPS is more convenient and better in many ways, but I use road directories because I can have a better idea of how to get to the place I am going to,” he told CNA.Mr Tang said the directory allows for more flexible alternative route planning in the event of congestion, and gives a clearer picture of nearby car parks – crucial for peak times when every lot has been snapped up.“I use road directories also because I have been using it for years, long before GPS was available,” he added. “My friends and I who are from the older generation have been … [Read more...] about In the age of online maps, who needs street directories anymore?
The leaders of France and New Zealand joined with the world’s biggest online platforms in pledging to help curb the internet’s role in spreading hate speech and incitement to violence. At a summit in Paris Wednesday, representatives from Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet, committed to use and develop rules, algorithms and direct intervention to curb the uploading, promotion, amplification and distribution of violent extremism on social media platforms. The initiative calls for hate speech to be “immediately and permanently” taken down, though isn’t legally binding.

(Here’s a quickonline quiz to help you choose rationally) In a few days, we will once again exercise our right to choose our leaders. What’s of national interest this time is the election of 12 senators. Have you chosen the names you will write on the ballot? Please remember to treat this as a sacred right and responsibility because your vote will not only affect yourself but the entire country. It is important that we make our choices seriously and intelligently. We tend to avoid talking about our choices with our family and friends in order to keep the peace. While most people just shrug this off as a difference in opinion or choice, I consider it much more than that. What do I mean? Let me explain by giving you this example. Suppose you have a son who’s now entering grade school and he passed both Ateneo and La Salle entrance tests. You will now have to choose where to enroll him. If your dear friend insists that you enroll him in the blue school because of various … [Read more...] about Napili mo na ba ang mga Senador na iboboto mo?
