Do you think the "grey brigade" is a force to be reckoned with?

There would be many more opportunities in today's information age if the seniors were willing to pick up IT skills and also new ways of working.

If a senior rejoins the labour force, he cannot expect a senior position.

What features would you look for in a private bike-sharing scheme?

How about a discount on insurance premiums after clocking a certain mileage? That would be promoting a healthier lifestyle that involves the bike-sharing scheme.

The operators should set up makeshift bike bays at HDB void decks.

Ong ZK

Bicycle-parking areas in HDB blocks and MRT stations are dumping grounds for unwanted and abandoned bikes. We should address this problem first... There is really no space for legitimate users and those who really need to park their bikes.

Wilkie Ong Keng  Soon

I have seen way too many bicycles thrown around in public spaces to think that this is a good idea... this is just littering.

Should breastfeeding mothers have to cover up?

Some babies get really fussy when latching on under a cover, many cannot wait for their mums to go to a breastfeeding room or some mums just simply do not wish to feed their babies using bottles. Respect their ways of feeding their babies.

Leticia Malphettes

Francis Chong

Lai Yin Lee
