No credit cards for under-18s

I am writing in response to the Face-off debate 'Should under-18s be allowed to use credit cards?' (Young Post, September 29). It is about two teenagers discussing whether under-18s should be given credit cards or not.

Elderly deserve better treatment

I am writing in response to the letter 'Caregivers need better training' (Young Post, March 2). A caregiver who badly ill-treated an elderly woman was given a six-month jail term and ordered to pay HK$3,000 in compensation. I think the offender should have received a harsher punishment.

An old name in the pizza game comes to town

Can you really have too much pizza? We don't think so. Another establishment has just opened in Central. However, it's not a chain unfamiliar to other parts of the city.

The American eatery Shakey's already has franchises in Kowloon and the New Territories, but its pizzas and other family-style dishes arrived on Hong Kong side with a Tuesday opening on Stanley Street.

Goodbye to standby

Switching off devices that have a standby mode, such as televisions, computers and CD players, is very easy to do and can have a big effect on our power consumption.

However, to change their ingrained habits, people need to show strong determination.

Give up your time for others

I have joined a volunteers' group with Yan Oi Tong. It's not just meaningful but also interesting. I had to organise a camp for the elderly in Tuen Mun. It was the first time I'd done anything like this.

Think of the less fortunate children

Millions of children around the world, especially in developing countries, live in poverty and lack education opportunities.

Unicef (the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) is concerned with the survival, protection, education and development of children.

Baby dilemma for newly-weds

I want to express my views about why some young couples choose not to have babies.

Many newly-weds think that having a new addition to their family will bring unnecessary problems and 'ruin' their romantic life.

They know that a baby needs to be looked after very carefully. So they delay or decide not to have a baby.

The world is getting very hot and scary

We learn that Hong Kong could be 'the world champion of carbon dioxide emission', with levels per square metre 500 times greater than that of the United States, 'the world's leading carbon dioxide offender overall'.

SBA is an unfair way to judge students

Since I was young, I have worked hard in every lesson so that I could do well in my exams.

I used to revise everything I had learned in school.

However, due to the introduction of school-based assessment (SBA), I have had to give up this habit.

Co-operation is vital in life

An inter-class football competition was held last month and my class won the gold medal. But we learned a much more important thing that day: co-operation.

Nowadays, people always think of themselves.
