Liberal studies will only widen the social gap between students

University cuts

I write in response to the government's proposal to cut university spending.

Education is a long-term investment rather than an expenditure. I am opposed to budget cuts to accumulate savings while alternatives exist.

Nowadays, Hong Kong students are considered below standard in coping with the challenges of a knowledge-based economy.

Talkback

Q What creates stress for you in your Hong Kong lifestyle?

Like many of my fellow Hong Kongers, the stress from which I suffer these days is caused by financial hardship, a lack of job security and pressure at work.

On top of this, each one of us does not only have to cope with our own problems. You see, I have come to realise that stress is contagious.

RE:VIEW

Many busy Hong Kongers visit museums when they travel but forget what's on their doorstep. This month, there are two world-class showings on both sides of the harbour.

Rude awakening

How sad that the Promotion of Civic Education committee should feel the need to spend precious taxpayers' money telling everyone what, in truth, they already know: how to be polite.

House bound

In difficult economic times people frequently give vent to their frustrations in irrational ways. Often these emotions are expressed by making unreasonable demands of those in power to fix the ills that beset people's lives.

What is wrong with the economy is the Government's fault and the Government should do more to clean up the mess, runs the argument.

Fine civil servant, shame about the second-hand politics

I refer to the article by Chris Yeung headlined 'How Anson's legacy will flower' (South China Morning Post, April 28).

Pushed and shoved by wave of fanatics

I am a frequent traveller on the MTR and almost every day I am confronted with the same despicable behaviour of fellow passengers.

As I am sure everyone is aware, boarding passengers seldom yield to a very simple request to let disembarking passengers off the train before getting on.

Optimistic view

In his column headlined, 'An SAR Asian Games would be no Sydney experience' (South China Morning Post, September 23), Albert Cheng said that it would not be in Hong Kong's best interests if its bid to host the Asian Games in 2006, was successful.

Singapore harbours designs on our port crown

We should all be proud. After losing our crown to a rival, Hong Kong has wrested the sceptre from the usurper's grasp.

For a while there, things were looking black. But now, we've regained our crown, and can once again hold our heads high.

Proud to be Hong Kongers.

Proud to be number one.

Martin scores small victory for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is almost here, so flower and card sellers are aglow with satisfaction.

Unfortunately, they're about the only ones who are.

Lai See has some disturbing news for you. It seems we are living in the most erotically challenged place on Earth.

Transforming losers into tools for Net profit

Surely the two words in finance circles most guaranteed to set pulses racing these days are 'dot' and 'com'.

Not a day goes past when some spotty smartypants goes on-line with the obligatory Internet suffix attached to a name suggesting some marginally innovative information-related concept and hey presto, a new Net stock with market value through the roof.
