“I figured out like a mindset to have,” the freak said days ago. “When you focus on the past, that’s your ego… and when I focus on the future, it’s my pride… I kind of try to focus in the moment, in the present. “And that’s humility, that’s being humble.” That. It hits right on the mark, doesn’t it? That is the line that we should remember from one of the most magical runs of a superstar’s path to glory and vindication, and the line we should remember from the remarkable coronation of a team whose values give the National Basketball Association the perfect model to display center stage. It’s clear with the way he speaks that Giannis Antetokounmpo has hit a mental landmark, the kind that only few of the greats can ever master, while others may never discover. And the reason why it resonates so much is because his new-found belief is applicable for any human on his or her way to discovering self-actualization.

Derek Ramsay (left) and Ellen Adarna (Image: Instagram/@ramsayderek07) Actor Derek Ramsay seems happier than ever with fiancée Ellen Adarna, whom he labeled as “#soontobemrsR.” Ramsay emphasized just how Adarna brings “so much happiness” into his life via an appreciation post on Instagram yesterday, July 23. The post came with a video of a joyful Adarna laughing uncontrollably as she lies on top of Ramsay, whom she makes fun of for making grunting sounds. “Sorry for posting this vid again but this is why I love you so much! Thanks bruha for bringing so much happiness in my life,” Ramsay said. The two first stirred romance rumors after cozy photos of them surfaced on social media in February. Weeks later, they admitted to the relationship and said it all started in a blind date set up by their friends.

As a popular obstetrician and gynaecologist, Dr Ann Tan is always busy. The last few months of the year, however, are especially hectic. Asked why, she grins and replies: "New Year resolutions? Many people say: 'I must get pregnant this year' so they start from Christmas and January." Covid-19 and the circuit breaker in Singapore will probably also mean more expectant mothers in the months to come, she reckons. "More people are trying, and what we are going through makes people think of life more and they want to have more kids," she says. Dr Tan, 58, has delivered thousands of babies over the last three decades. "I deliver about 15 a month," she says. Also a well-known fertility doctor, she has helped many couples conceive too. In fact, she is an advocate of social freezing - of both eggs and sperm - which she believes is especially crucial in Singapore, which has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world. The total fertility rate (TFR) here is 1.14 children ... » Learn More about It Changed My Life: ‘I want eggs, good ones,’ says top fertility expert
TOKYO/SEOUL (Reuters) - Yoo Hyo-jeo, a South Korean marketing specialist based in Tokyo, wept with joy when she watched her countryman Heo Kwang-hee knock the world's number one men's singles player out of the Olympics. Heo, ranked 38, smashed his way to a stunning 21-15 21-19 victory against Japanese badminton hero Kento Momota on Wednesday. The 25-year-old Korean shuttler, who lives and trains in Seoul, overwhelmed Momota several times with sharply angled smashes that his opponent was unable to counter, sometimes hitting Momota himself before the Japanese player could dodge the powerful shots. "I was really surprised by Heo Kwang-hee's dazzling skills," said Yoo, 33. "Every time he succeeded in attacks, he shouted out full of energy and I loved his spirit." "I am no expert to say whether he will win gold but I just hope he does well till the end of the Games and continues to be a healthy athlete -- I will continue to support him from afar.” Heo, who took up badminton in ... » Learn More about Olympics-Badminton-Momota fans mourn historic upset; Koreans cry with joy

SINGAPORE: The nine months of a pregnancy are often a period of great joy, anticipation and a fair share of trepidation. On top of all the worries and anxieties about becoming new parents, welcoming another life into the family, we also worry about the health of the mother and foetus. The pandemic has only heightened these worries, especially given that pregnant women are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 than non-pregnant women, and COVID-19 has been associated with an increased risk of pre-term birth, according to the World Health Organization. Getting vaccinated, therefore, is a priority for many. But while vaccination remains the best defence against COVID-19, the immediate benefit of vaccination depends on the local COVID-19 situation.

I WAS already tired of the gee-whiz coverage of Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos going into space before Branson actually went there last Sunday (or, went somewhere close, depending on your definition of space). But much of the coverage since has absolutely worn me out with its treatment of Branson as a heroic figure and his joy ride some 50 miles (85km) above earth as if it was a monumental moment in human exploration and consciousness. “Really, it’s a moment that gives you goose bumps,” Rachel Crane, CNN innovation correspondent said Sunday morning on the channel shortly after Branson’s craft landed. “As a reporter, we all have those moments that we put in the memory book forever, that we know we’re never going to forget, we’re going to hold onto the rest of our lives. I have got to tell you, this is one of those for me.” Obviously, Crane is free to enshrine whatever memories she wants in her memory book, but I don’t think I will be slotting Branson’s marketing moment last Sunday ... » Learn More about Can we please try to get a little less gung-ho in our adulation for rich guys in space?
The world of movies and television may seem all glitzy and glamorous but it's run by people who have the same troubles, concerns and joys as everyone else. While people love to see the glamour of the industry, many fail to see what goes behind making this happen. That's why when celebrities share their stories of problems, depression and more, it comes across as a rude shock. But it's necessary that stars open up about their trials and tribulations to give an honest picture of their lives. This gives hope to those followers who may be stuck in a similar situation and can't see a way out. As far as mental health concerns go, this is a recurring issue and sometimes, all you need is support, even it comes in the form of a Facebook post. More recently, Taiwan-born actress Kate Pang shared an insightful post detailing her mental health journey as a child and as a parent.

Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://t.me/mothershipsg Singapore plans to progressively raise its retirement age to 65 by the year 2030, up from the current retirement age of 62. This doesn't necessarily mean that we'll work longer before we can retire, however. The retirement age is a restriction for employers and not employees. Under the Retirement and Re-employment Act (RRA), employers are restricted from asking employees to retire before they reach retirement age, provided that they joined their companies before reaching 55. Meanwhile, workers can retire anytime they are ready, regardless of what the retirement age is. Why do we have a retirement age? The idea of a retirement age was introduced in 1993, to prevent employers from retiring workers once they reach the age of 55. Back then, it was common for companies to ask workers to retire at 55 — the age at which they were allowed to withdraw from their Central Provident Fund (CPF) ... » Learn More about Why does S’pore require companies to re-employ workers till they are 67?
