Troubled gestation

Liberal Studies is an unknown quantity in Hong Kong. But what is known is that the Education Bureau is dead serious about making it tutor-proof, with no model answers or even textbooks to give tutors the bragging rights. But gung-ho tutors are losing no time in calling themselves born masters of an unborn subject.

Boatperson rocks the world with his proud collection of short stories

It is exceptionally rare for a collection of short stories to take the literary world by storm, especially when the collection is an author's debut work.

Let love be your energy

I'm writing in response to an article, 'Love warms up the darkest, coldest corner', which appeared in Young Post.

Q What could be done to curb the rate of domestic abuse?

I refer to your article 'Family violence needs taking more seriously' (April 21). As a professional family counsellor, I think your article missed the point.

Cruel lesson

Last month's tsunami cruelly demonstrated life is a gift that can be wrenched away at any time. Every day, people suffer sudden, unforeseen loss that alters their lives irrevocably, but which the rest of us usually hardly notice.

Tune in, turn on and love people

It's called The Silent Melody of Love. It's all about encouraging students to have relationships, and promoted by the Education and Manpower Bureau . . . but it has nothing to do with sex.
