32 year foreign talent appointed as athletic technical director

Singapore’s dearth of talent is again exposed with the appointment of a 32 year old foreign talent as the Singapore Athletics technical director. Volker Herrmann will not be the one and only 30s super talent that have found jobs here in spite of the plentiful of old cocks, oops I mean coaches, that were not deemed good enough. There are so many of these 30s foreign talents all over Singapore holding positions that Singaporeans would love to be in, from the academics to entertainments and many other fields.
And sure enough this new talent has enough of talent to tell the daft sinkies that Singapore has a very nice stadium, nearly perfect sporting infrastructure, commitments and dedications shown by athletics, high technical level, high level of coaching, old coaches are willing to learn new tricks, have good knowledge, etc etc.  Despite all this great stuff, our athletics are not on the podium of international sports or rarely. So a foreign talent would change this sorry state of affair.
Now what is the solution? According to this Herrmann, it is communication and collaboration among the fraternity and a back to basics approach to training will be the key to success beyond the region. Oh, not just these, training must be about quality, not quantity. ‘But the trend now is to focus on the quality of the training, so we need to reduce the volume of training and focus on the technique and intensity of the sessions instead.’ This reminds me of what the MOE was trying to do in the last regime before the two new ministers came in to change everything. Yes, teach less and learn more or something like that. Now I get the picture, it is not the volume but the quality of the teaching or training.
Ok, not so simple. Herrmann added, athletics is a late developer sport, so must have long term development plan for budding athletes. He added, ‘If you have the wrong fundamentals, like a lack of coordination, lack of core strength, lack of general endurance, you’ll never be able to make it to world class…So we need to ensure that these kids have the appropriate age related training. It should be joyful, it should impact different parts of the body, the brain, and the central nervous system.’
My God, why aren’t our coaches aware of all these good stuff? Where have they been, what have they been learning and teaching? Now a 32 year old foreign talent, with all 32 years of experience, l mean life experience, not sure how many years of coaching experience, is here to share with them how to improve the performance of our athletes in world competition.
This must be another case of money well spent and worth every cent paid for it. We need more 30 year olds to teach our old cocks how to be coaches and in every field of endeavours. It looks like we have a nation of obsolete unthinking Ah Peks, cannot innovate anymore and with all good facilities and good stuff, still cannot produce any good results. Anyone above 40 year old is out of sync, out of touch with the latest knowledge in all fields. Yes, they need to go for retraining to be taxi drivers and security guards. Maybe can find good jobs in third world countries. The old cliché that old is wisdom needs to be thrown out of the window.  Forget about the oldies, especially daft sinkie oldies. I am one of them.
Youth is talent, especially foreign, knowledge and wisdom from any corner of the globe, never mind little towns and villages will be better than our old cocks.

We have local talent. Only problem is that they cannot speak like Ang Mo. Say and say but mean little. This is what our government likes. Lots of stories and lots of "Let's move on".

RB what wrong with being a taxi driver especially a uber or grad taxi Drivers. I notice at shopping mall drop off point that close to 30% of drop off is by uber or grab taxi. Most of these Drivers are around 30 plus and they can earn up to 6000 to 8000 per month. Most drive family old cars though some are new.

The government knows the earning power of this profession earning better than graduates in PMET positions. So it's better to let FT to take over these Low paying jobs just like the day when construction, shipyard and maid jobs are for FT. Now it's time to move the white collar Low paying jobs to FT too and let sinkies earn more in taxi driving. But to sustain this, we need a larger population and more tourists.

Singapore will always need foreign talents like this young coach. If you want to be world class in the fields of sport then you must be prepare to invest in new methods of training. I think it is the right thing to do, invest in this talent from overseas and maybe Singapore will be able to stand out in the world of sport. Yes I agree with this hiring of this new foreign coach to train Singaporean and to make Singapore shine. This is investment well spent. Redbean would disagree, of course he would, because he is soooooo negative, as always.

There is nothing wrong being a taxi driver or any decent job. I think the future for Singaporean graduates is to be taxi drivers and hawkers, to make more money.

The employee type will be the foreign talents. They will all become employees and will have to take taxis driven around by our graduates and eat in hawker stalls with food cooked by our young graduates.

This is the new reality.

Singapore was bought, colonized and run by the British Empire. You earlier leaders of Western education, orientation and masturbation had run Singapore based upon the British Administration, British Parliamentary Undemocratic Democracy, British Bias-in-favor-of-rich-and-powerful Education System, British Commonwealth In-favor-of-Ang-Moh Legal System, and British Ruthless Internal Security Detention-Without-Trial Dracula Draconian System.

Then these systems were handed down to the present Western-Oriented-Elites, who are even more ruthless and merciless than the Japanese Syonan-mentality, but on the surface said to be FOR you and WITH you (spend your CPF money FOR you and import millions of foreigners to compete WITH you).

So, with pro-foreigners systems, pro-foreigners leaders and pro-foreigners policies, how not Singapore be in dearth of talents, when you have systematically, politically and socially been engineered to become subservient, submissive, subordinated, subdued and suppressed?

What do you think your Education System is really for? What do you think the 'NationalEducation Program' was really for? What do you think the National Service is really for? What do you think your Existence is really for?

"That religious leader who has to kiss ass and still got repatriated must feel like a fool. he should have kissed King Kong religion backside "

I watched king kong show. his nama is kong, no king as surname lah.
Kong is like foreigners to sinkies projected and portrait by pap ponky. Foreigners can do wander in the jungle world for the mildly managed to survive sinkies. Kowtow to kong like foreigners, that s what ponky want you to do.

Sport stadium they hired one grass growth expert to grow grass. The expert from oz not only did not grow grass, he had double jobs as consultant to India. Millions dollars gone to this angmor.

Mrt they hired auntie saw saw. She made a big show on how to get deep inside dark hole in mrt station without light and airflow for more than 60 mins. Good test for the people inside the carriage. Auntie also drove ferari, merc, bm, wear 18 yr old cloths at 50s when attended inquiry. I m a fan of this auntie.

At nus they hired a professor screwing students in office. Saved money on 82 hotel fees knn. No wander geylang has no business. I have due respect to legal professional from foreign lands who dare to do more than sinkies gangsters did. Imagine screwing own customers ie students in office. Only foreigners can think of such thing. One more, foreigner from amaricar, screwed young young under aged girls and got away like having a shift duties at changi.

This india priest who talked something and got the laws caught up with him was not so much a fan of mine. He said his home town had taught him that offensive slogan. I just found it was not passible as he should read those slogan and thought it over, tio boh? Sinkies people are like that lah. They thought it over. So do not tell sinkies in foreign land, my home town taught that.

I believe sinkielands are for foreigners to take whatever they want lah. Money, top jobs, top jobs plus second job income, screw young girls, office as sexroom, anyting foreigners like, they can get it done here. U know why? Not ponky s fault. It was voters who put the brillian ponky into position to implement foreigners boleh policy. Not just 5.8 millions now. Lagi another 2-3 millions foreigners to fill up the 7 millions quota by 10 years time.

If you have fierce, sex hungry, greedy for money, most important, idiotic high flier like using plastic string to tie train tracks kind a standard, let ponky and kaki know, there are lots of vacancies to be filled by these able for nothing foreigners. Vacancies are alot here, only for not so good foreigners. U have? can introduce, get some appointed hr agencies to do it lah, u may get freebies also. hahaha. Hiring foreigners is not free. Hr agencies got lots of money. But appointed ones only. That s how those foreigners got into top job. Possible? or i was wrong.

This Donald Trump been trumping the Americans and the Rest of The World all the while with his mischievous Bipolar Show Off school kid behavior.

When he flew to Florida, he called his por lam par Abe that he is going to meet Xi. Just telling the Lau Bay that he gonna to hassle Xi. Like a mischievous school boy bully tactic that he gonna to whack a puny kid. When he saw Xi, he full of smiles and that made Abe frowned. See his Reception of greeting Abe, Merkel and Xi.

Before Xi touchdown, he ordered the missiles attacks on Syria. This just to tell Xi that the Americans Superior show of Air power. We can do the same to your South China Sea Islets.

They just take an excuse that they are doing this to save the miseries of the women. children etc. In Vietnam War, they used the Napalm Bombs and burned the Vietnamese.

No one protested. Even the little girl who was burned running Naked now turned American Citizen had high praise for the Americans. Asians of all creeds and colors worshiped the White Gods.

Also, he wanted Xi to tackle North Korea by using someone to kill another and puts the blame on that stupid guy.

Xi, in his poker faced natural self will just simply listened and occasionally just smiled at him. In his mind, he knew this DT is just playing a show to frustrate those who wants to do what they want. He knew how to play along and then plucked them wholesale.

Our Hen will also be frustrated. This OCBC is waiting for some actions but is disappointed.
He just hypocritically said that hope China and USA relations to be good.

Many of these had blood on their Hands pretending to be Gods when they are the Devils.

Anyway, Let Heavens Judge Them and Karma be fallen on them.

While the leaders have resorted to deceit and lies to hide the use of the church’s building funds for the Crossover, including inflating Ho Yeow Sun’s success, he noted that the leaders were acting in what they “genuinely believed to be in CHC’s interest”.

“Thus, despite the fact that a large amount of funds from CHC was misappropriated, which would ordinarily have attracted a sentence at the higher end of the sentencing spectrum, we would allow for a significant discount given the exceptional mitigating factors in the present case,” he said.

WoW...give the judge a slap..oops..a clap

While the prosecution had attempted to make the point that Ms Ho had benefited from this, it was not a point raised in the written submissions for the appeal, nor raised before the judges. This was why the judges took a sentencing approach in this case as “one without any element of wrongful gain or personal financial benefit, either direct or indirect”, he added.

The court accepted that the leaders had acted in what they considered to be the best interests of CHC, where the sham investment charges are concerned, as this would have advanced the church’s interests by allowing them evangelise through the Crossover project.

Hmm..Since an Islamic state is in the religious interest of Muslims, should they not be allowed to freely evangelise and cross over to politics?(not that christians are not doing it indirectly - crossing over - anyway)

All these happenings are dramatized in the now current Korean Dramas like "The Innocent Defender" just finished its final episode and now "The Whisper" currently still on.

The storyline shown how the Rich, the powerfull elites collaborated and work in cahoots to cheat and hoodwinked the peasants.

If you are in the same league as me in so many similar traits in status, religion and interests, I with a prejudiced mind will be more favourable to you and the other who has opposite traits with me.

In any circumstances of employment, social intercourse and what's benefits, they be prejudiced to give their own kind priority.

We also note that the Prosecution had not focused on any gain to third parties for its case on conviction and sentence, even though this may have been suggested in the charges (especially the sham investment charges). While the Prosecution did, in its oral submissions before us, attempt to make the point that a benefit had accrued to Kong Hee’s wife, Sun Ho, this point was not raised in its written submissions for the appeal and was also not raised before the Judge. In the circumstances, we approach the sentencing in this case as one without any element of wrongful gain or personal financial benefit, either direct or indirect.”

In other words..prosecutors maybe "kakilang" or wayang only because the critical point of personal gain was not vulgarly shouted at the TOP of the roof of the Supreme Court?

And there are more....

If any of the elite ruling members were to be found lying and had proven deceifult, they would have been severely incarcerated and banished from office. Here we have, from the judges horse mouths, there were found deceit in the mastermind leadership and his deputies, of the highest and most populace religious public institution, and he, in particular, being the mastermind, was not incarcerated but instead, given a mere lighter appeasement sentence(insult to the public intelligence) which basically is noting but a slap in the hand of a head of a leading and influential religious organisation of millions of followers world wide for ..."technical violation"

Mind you...a mind and mouth that spew the love and fear of God day in and out, week after week and month after month for decades actually deliberated and masterminded the deceit and lies.

Even an unlearned and unrighteous(non religious) soul may find it hard to lie and deceive someone for personal gain, but not a seasoned highly trained and disciplined religious person with absolute godly power to his advantage can resist deliberating deception and lying to his people.

Hi Anon 11.55

Truely, all human beans are sinners in one way or the other, big or small. So most are looking for Salvation though they can be rich or poor. Some hard headed Kepala Batu atheists who don't give a Damn of Hell which some believed to be non existence.

Some does, but believed in themselves that they will try to live a life that does not do harm to their fellow beans and all creations they would probably be saved from Hell.

So, if you were to hai kow yew that you have a only and only right way to Salavation, those hard-core sinners and whatever desperately seeking salvation sinners were easily conned and buy your Elixir.

So, once they thought that they have the Elixir to Salvation, they would do anything to please their Saviours not to upset their Salvation to Heaven as promised.

Thus, they have a mighty hold on their minds and souls. You can see that they are foolish from your angle of being an atheist or from other religions but for them they are absolutely sure that theirs is the only way.

If you are in the same faith, likewise for other faiths, your own kind is been crucified and to you believing in the same faith, you will have a soft spot for them believing that what they done is no crime.

But as in the laws of the country they are deemed to be committing a crime in not their religious orders but civil orders, they have no choice but to impose penalties to convict them.

This is human failures and exist anywhere not only in SINKIE land.

Anyway, to each his own and the last Judgement would be made by their own Maker of their particular faith whether they do any wrong.

Human judgement are always clouded with controversial opinions.
