Political campaigning and the internet...
Bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, verbal-linguistic, logical mathematical, neutralistic, intrapersonal, visual spatial and musical.
A little bit on these aspects...
-Bodily-kinesthetic- People who have this intelligence usually learn better by getting up and moving around, and are generally good at physical activities such as sports or dance.
-Interpersonal- People who have a high interpersonal intelligence tend to be extroverts, characterized by their sensitivity to others' moods, feelings, temperaments and motivations, and their ability to cooperate in order to work as part of a group.
- Verbal-linguistic- People with high verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words along with dates.
-Logical Mathematical-Those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming and other logical or numerical activities
-Neutralistic- This has to do with nature, nurturing and relating information to one's natural surroundings, those with it are said to have greater sensitivity to nature and their place within it, the ability to nurture and grow things, and greater ease in caring for, taming and interacting with animals.
-Intrapersonal- Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introvert and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations.
-Visual spatial-People with strong visual-spatial intelligence are typically very good at visualizing and mentally manipulating objects. Those with strong spatial intelligence are often proficient at solving puzzles.
-Musical- Those who have a high level of musical-rhythmic intelligence display greater sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones, and music.
Emotional Quotient demonstrates the ability to identify, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups. *I feel that this is especially important for everyone to possess it as we are constantly dealing with different people. When one enters workforce, employers tend to seek out for individuals who could emotionally handle all aspects of the working life.
Intelligent Quotient on the other hand demonstrates a person's ability to acquire and aplly knowledge, as well as engaging in abstract reasoning.
Singapore has created new agencies and given its law enforcement personnel greater powers in its fight against these crimes since 1993. A study has identified Singapore as “the most network ready country” in the world. Hey, how true is that so..?
Singapore has chosen to follow the model of the United Kingdom by enacting legislation that addresses computer crime . In Singapore's Computer Misuse Act, those who obtain unauthorized access to computer material, modify the contents of a computer, obtain or intercept any computer service or function, interfere with or obstruct the lawful use of a computer, impede or prevent access to or impair the usefulness or effectiveness of any computer program or data, or disclosing a password, access code, or other means of gaining access to a program or data would be seriously dealt with by the law.
In what other ways have Singapore fight cyber crimes...
Well, Singapore has created law enforcement agencies with trained personnels to keep pace with the rapid technology advances. The Singapore Police Force has also been given additional power, e.g. extra-territorial jurisdiction, to aid in their efforts to counter cyber crimes.
Take a look at the video below, it was produced by Spore students and in it, it talks about a few cyber crimes which we may fall for..The video is very hilarious but its good effort produced by the students.

Its been quite some time since I last blogged. The weeks had been busy for me as I was occupied with lots of mid-term papers. Nevertheless, I made and completed this simple video with the help of a friend. It was not as difficult as I thought, using and exploring Windows Movie Maker and making a simple video completed with audio. This short video shows beautiful scenes of Taiwan (Taipei 101, Ali-shan, Jianhu-shan etc.). There are also some photo shots of my family and the theme song of movie Cape No. 7 is used in this video. Overall, the experience of making a video is great and I enjoyed it. =)

Having seen and gone through the topic of E-Business in Mr Abel Choy's lesson, I was quite happy and rather relieved as I remembered studying and acquiring prior knowledge of E-business during my poly days. Interdisciplinary studies were a must for us and "Understanding E-business" was what I took...
