Truth be told, I gleefully accepted this arrow because I really really thought it was going to be about me sending/receiving a parcel via Lalamove. I mean what else could it be? But when I opened the email, this greeted me: I Tried to be a Lalamove Driver for The Day This will be an experiential angle by a Mothership writer. They will document their first time being a driver and share his experience making 1-2 deliveries in a day. My first thought: “Great.” I then thought more about it -- nothing will ever make me appreciate delivery staff by spending some time (albeit a day, I admit) in their shoes. Game on. Chapter 1: Register myself First things first, I had to download the app for delivery personnel called Lalamove Driver - Earn Extra Income. The thought of earning extra income is super enticing because money never enough, so I did the baller move of downloading it without connecting to Wi-Fi.

* denotes name changed to protect the person’s identity SINGAPORE: When Jane* opened up to her secondary school counsellor about the cold wars and troubles she was having with some close friends, she was told that “life’s like that”. That was the then 14-year-old’s first session. “I felt ignored, like (school counselling is hopeless) even if I bring up my problems,” said Jane, now 17 and in her first year at junior college. She had been “mandated” to attend counselling because she was frequently late for class and did not submit homework on time. She recalled her form teacher telling her outside the classroom, in full view and within earshot of her classmates, that a session had been arranged to address her tardiness. “It brings the idea that those who aren’t faring well have some problems and need to see the counsellor, rather than (the idea that) people … want to see a counsellor because of personal reasons,” she said. After three compulsory sessions on her time ... » Learn More about ‘With school counsellors, it’s really hit-or-miss’: Behind the challenge of safeguarding student mental health
MANILA, Philippines – For Maricel Panayas, not knowing how to use a computer was a source of embarrassment. So when a community center under the government’s Tech4ED project opened in M’lang, she decided to take lessons in basic computer literacy. “ Nagpapasalamat ako dahil binigyan nila kami ng pagkakataon, kaming mga simpleng nanay na mga walang trabaho sa bahay na matuto tungkol sa computer. Madami talaga kaming nakuhang karunungan tungkol sa mga bagong teknolohiya ,” she said. (I’m thankful, because we, simple housewives without jobs, were given the opportunity to learn about computers.

There are two broad ways that dictionaries define "discrimination". The first, and perhaps the more commonly-understood way, frames discrimination as something that is always bad. An example of this first way of defining "discrimination" can be found in the Oxford dictionary : "The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of ethnicity, age, sex, or disability." If someone practices " discrimination " in this way, they might be described as " discriminatory ". The second kind of definition however, simply focuses on the ability to understand the difference between things. Thus, "discrimination" according to the same Oxford dictionary entry, can also mean: "Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another."

TOKYO: After booking her place in Olympic history with a record sixth individual gold medal, world swimming's most decorated woman Katie Ledecky is confident there's plenty more to come: and is already talking about a bid to reach the next two Olympics. The American dominated the 800m freestyle final in Tokyo on Saturday (Jul 31) to win gold comfortably, beating the record for the most women's individual Olympic swimming titles held for a quarter of a century by Hungary's Krisztina Egerszegi. Ledecky said the idea of already being a sporting legend had never entered her mind. "I don't know if even my first Olympic gold has sunk in fully, nine years later, so I think once I eventually retire I'll probably more fully appreciate it all," she said. "I'm just going to try and live in the moment, right now I think I've done a good job of that this week, taking it one day at a time, one race at a time." "I've always been moving forward, driving forward ... I'll let this sit for a ... » Learn More about Swimming: After historic feat, Ledecky hints at bid for Olympics immortality
