Go to TED.com and choose TWO videos to watch.
Please choose your videos wisely. Try choosing videos which could be relevant for your understanding of GP topics.
After watching each video, SUMMARISE each video in about 50 words. You are to USE YOU OWN WORDS, and not copy and paste from the website. You can give a summary of all the key ideas presented or what the video is about. This is good practise for putting your ideas into words.
Go online and find 1 relevant article for each video you watched. The articles should be related to the topic that was presented in the video. However, it need not be talking about exactly the same thing as some topics could be very general.
This is the most important task, and will be graded. Give a review of the video or article that you have found. Do the review as you would complete an application question.
Minimum 120 words.
Type out your work and save them in a word document. But you should POST ALL of your work in a REPLY to this thread, so that your classmates can also see what you have reviewed.

on the other hand, be mentally prepared for the worse...
Thursday, March 12, 2009
say HELLO to March block test! /// 7:03 AM
HELLO!! If you are not anticipating any intense studying sessions yet, this should get into your mind NOW: (say this pledge please) "hello Mr/Mz March block test! I swear i will conquer you, make sure you don't challenge my intelligence, prevent you from going down the drain, and give me all the As that i deserve. (and being a proud MJ student, you know clearly more than anyone else that you OUGHT TO/HAVE TO/MUST study haaaaard in order to DESERVE the As)"
You will most probably go.. " huh... how to study hard. I study also cannot get good grades... :( " Relax ok? There's still hope in this one precious week. I can't emphasise this enough but just a cliche yet valuable advice from the study guru,
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. Plan your March holidays time wisely. don't do unecessary things and regret after that, knowing you could jolly well have used the time to study for the extra marks needed.
It isn't the really major exam like your Alvls yet. but as quoted from the teachers, this will be a real gauge as to how well prepared you are, at this stage, for the coming A levels. so, in other words, you choose your own destiny yeah?
anyway, just a gentle reminder, complete the following before chem consultation:
MBT revision package
ALL organic Exercises (don't worry, it's really just the basics)
memorise the 5 mechanisms: FRS, EA, ES, SN2 (NS), NA
Memorise (and know how to apply) ALL concept maps (we've done this a couple of times already right? haha)
Learn how to draw alpha-helix and Beta pleated sheet in proteins structure
Write down or take note of all doubts to ask Ms Ong
As for maths, it is strongly advisable for you to print out the past year MBT papers and practice on them For econs, do e-learning. ( i think it's on exchange-rate determination... there's alot of the e lessons available so i don't know which it is.. but there's only assessment on the exchange rate determination) For physics, you heard what Dr Vaz said. don't just spend your time on one subject, or rather other subjects, alone. Revise your tutorials and lecture notes and attempt the TYS qns. For GP.. i don't really have any idea of what to do, but there's GP consultation slots available on Saturday, 9-11am. That's all for this week's homework update! not much of homework besides preparation for MBT :D
P.S : take note that this is not for self-indulgence but for a real purpose in motivating you 08S203 folks to get hyped up in studying. :D
Wish the lot of you all the best for March Block Test. Keep your brain healthily exercising! :]

Econs- mr hon's answers /// 8:51 AM
ECONS ANSWER (might not be complete)
Slowdowns in US, Eurozone, Japan and Asia --> lower income as well as les optimistic business outlook and lower consumer confidence --> lower demand for consumer goods including imports from Singapore. Demand for imported goods are income-induced. As a result, Singapore will reduce exports to these regions --> fall in net export --> multiple contraction of national income and hence negative economic growth in singapore.
The global financial and economic shocks will be transmitted to domestic economic activity both directly and indirectly. The global financial crisis 2008/2009 and the resultant squeeze in liquidity and credit impinge on domestic economic activities in 3 main ways:
Firstly, the crisis has an immediate impact on the sentiment-driven segments on the financial sector, such as wealth advisory and brokerage & treasury activities. Second, as consumer sentiment weakens, this has a direct bearing on domestic-oriented activities such as retail trade and those related to the property market. Third, the repercussions on the external-oriented sectors come indirectly through a widespread contraction in economic activity and a sharp pull back in spending in the external economies, including Asia. Given open nature of Singapore economy, a large proportion of the industries such as manufacturing, transport-hub and tourist services are quickly affected by the fall in external demand.
Subsequently, as business conditions worsen, companies’ profits margins are squeezed, forcing them to curtail investment spending and cut back on employment and wages. This later in turn further dampens consumer sentiment and consumption, thus exacerbating the contraction in domestic-oriented activities. As a result, Singapore economic growth has been negatively impacted.
Homework updates /// 5:35 AM
The weekends are coming, yet again...
so naturally, you will expect HOMEWORK to pile up again.. but please try your best and make sure u clear those homework too ok? :D
It's gonna be a tough week ahead with MARCH BLOCK TEST around the corner.. but perservere on!! i believe everyone of us in 08S203 still has the chance to do well in march block test so jiayou jiayou!! don't slack or procrastinate too much! you just need to make full use of the weekends. :]
ok anyways, these are the homeworks to be done by this weekend:
nitrogen compounds tutorial (at least qn 1-4) + concept map
STUDY FOR MONDAY'S COMMON TEST : halogenoalkanes to carboxylic acid (learn alkenes & arenes concept map too)

P.S :( aim for Ms Ong's Pizza!! study hard for the upcoming test!!!)

Nick Vujicic /// 5:07 AM
Invasion by KENJI !
Anyways, i don't know why nowadays i keep coming across these motivational videos or one of my friends would introduce it to me. So i shall share it with you guys so that we can keep our aim(A's at A'levels) ...
AT SIGHT ! (:
This is just some of the more popular videos. Do check out the rest under the 'Related Videos' section for your own reference.
I think this should be the video that will keep us motivated to do well.
Saw this while blog hopping and decided to find the actual article.
Polytechnic Student dies before exam.
He threw up his lunch and then followed by a lot of blood, while studying halfway with friends.
Was thinking like how many of us are already falling sick and looking so pale during lessons. So even though we want to score good grades for our March block tests, lecture tests to come as well as the A'levels, please don't push your body over the limits. Drink plenty of water and have a good diet + exercise regularly.
I know this is random.
Oh well, just take care guys.
It would be damn ~!@#$%^&*()_+ if one of your close friends just leave you on one fine day and there you are, knowing he/she will never be coming back again. \:
