Emotikon is a 5-track music CD where each track revolves around a human emotion. The strong connection between how one feels and the music that one listens to led to the idea of exploring the spectrum of human emotions through original compositions. The five songs spanned a range of musical genres and were designed to appeal and, more ambitiously, to influence the listener’s moods.

Black and Whites: The Battleground is a feature on the black-and-white colonial houses in Singapore. These were once used to house the British Army and their families and have been left in a state of derelict after the British left the Island. In the late 1990s, these houses started to become popular among the expatriates who were attracted by the houses’ old charm and the greenery that surrounds them.

Scholarly Pursuits is a feature exploring the issue of scholarships in Singapore. Scholarships have been offered in Singapore since the late 1800’s, with the earliest conventional form given out in 1950 known as the Colombo Plan Scholarship (PSC, 2007). Since then, scholarships have burgeoned in number, with 58 organizations handing out more than 500 scholarships a year. Government scholarships, in particular, have gained a certain brand of prestige. Coupled with the nation’s results-oriented education system, Singapore has produced a scholar class that has attracted as much success as it has controversy.

The history of Malaysia and Singapore goes way back before 1965, the year when the two sides, once a union, went separate ways due to ideological differences. Since then, efforts from both sides to establish a unique identity for themselves have weathered away evidence of their common history. Some of the older generation, once supportive of the merger, admit the differences between the two countries are now too apparent to ignore. Their hopes for reunification have also thus faded with time. The youth, raised in an era when border lines are already drawn, define themselves first as citizens of the side where they were born. Yet against the backdrop of this dichotomy, we believe a certain character of ‘in-between’ still exist, remaining in limbo as the countries move further apart. Thus the hypothesis is such ambiguity in terms of one’s sense of identity or loyalty is magnified in the people who frequently cross borders or are still emotionally attached to the other side of the boundary line. We call them ‘The Causeway People’.

Foreign Blood, Local Heart is a book project that presents the multifarious nature of immigration in Singapore. It contains a selection of stories of individuals who have decided to call Singapore home — by becoming citizens. Each of the 26 profiles explores the background and motivations of each individual in their road to becoming Singaporean. Accompanying each profile are 2 thoughtfully constructed photographs — a headshot and an environmental portrait. Together, they seek to put a very human face on an issue that is more often than not expressed in terms of figures and charts.

Class is a topic which Singaporeans tend to avoid in polite company, but the growing income gap and slowing social mobility mean the issue can no longer be ignored. Our project aims to bring to the fore the ways in which class divides are being drawn, through the stories of Singaporeans from different backgrounds. We discovered that although the lines that separate the various classes may not be immediately apparent, and many still believe that we are a meritocratic society, the class dynamics at play have resulted in a decidedly unequal pace of progress across our society. The risk that some will get left behind is real. This, then, is the class ceiling.

The perception of Singapore’s thriving economy automatically conjures up images of the city-state’s bustling central business district, with towering skyscrapers and modern office buildings closely associated with the nation’s success. What people often overlook are smaller home-based businesses. There has been a belated acknowledgement of the role that home businesses can play in supporting traditional industries, and the appreciation of the need for a better work-life balance has seen home-based work increase in popularity. Home Inc. examines the current state of home businesses in Singapore, and explores the motivations and concerns of these resourceful individuals.

Singapore is a resource-strapped island city that lives and dies by its global position. Relying on its position as a probusiness and efficient city, Singapore attracted talents, investments and companies to drive its economy. Now, as Singapore moves towards the new era, it realises that it has entered a different ball game. The fight now is for global creative talent. Yet, Singapore’s older image is at odds with the creative city image. Tension arises when the whole nation tries to change its very being for the purposes of branding.

Internet dependency has been recognised as a growing problem in many countries in recent years. However, there seemed to be a lack of concrete programmes addressing the issue amongst tertiary students in Singapore. Considering that Singapore is one of the most highly wired countries in the world, the prevalence of an excessive dependence on the Internet poses a significant threat to the physical and psychological wellbeing of local youth. This convinced four undergraduates to embark on a campaign, titled Unplug!, to raise awareness about Internet dependency and the importance of moderating one’s time online. Built on the concepts of self-evaluation and peer influence, Unplug! followed a strategic three-step process to reach out to undergraduates in Singapore. Interactive programmes, interesting collaterals and a consistent media presence were utilised to encourage youth to embrace a world wider than the World Wide Web. Report available in

Show of the Heart (SOTH) is a ground-up initiative to create an effective and influential grassroots network amongst youth and young adult volunteers, with the ultimate goal of encouraging committed volunteers. Based on the literature and formative research, we defined a committed volunteer as one who is both selfless and willing to give of his or her time on a regular basis of at least one to two occasions a month. We crafted a volunteer recruitment and retention campaign by adapting Bussell and Forbes’ (2003) volunteer life cycle model with Hendrix and Hayes’s (2010) ROPE public relations process for problem solving. This was achieved in collaboration with several homes and hospices: HCA Hospice Care, Society for the Aged Sick and Kheng Chiu Loke Tin Kee Home.

Based on research and the use of brand concepts and methodologies, we seek to identify the challenges our client is facing and aim to help resolve them. To create a more focused proposal, we segmented the strategies into two aspects. They are re-branding the school, as well as reaching out to its potential audience and cultivating greater awareness. The strategies discussed are geared towards improving brand associations, as well as to help the school achieve specific pred etermined goals; including but not limited to – developing a more vibrant, personable and credible image brand, as well as making both its external (mainly) and internal communications more efficient.

This experimental study examines the effect of violent video games and cognitive restructuring on attitudes towards bullying behaviour, aggressive cognition, attitudes towards prosocial behaviour and state hostility. 181 young ad ults were randomly assigned to play a violent game (high vs. low cognitive restructuring) or a nonviolent game. Findings show that violent game play and cognitive restructuring had no effect on attitud es, but led to increased levels of aggressive cognition and state hostility. Contrary to expectation, under high cognitive restructuring conditions, males with high trait aggression had lower levels of aggressive cognition than those with low trait aggression.

Cyberbullying, a specific form of bullying, is a rising global phenomenon. Studies have suggested that bystanders possess the ability to effectively stop cyberbullying occurrences. However, a large proportion of bystanders are unlikely to intervene in their peers’ cyberbullying experiences. There has been little literature that provides a deeper understanding of how bystanders formulate their response strategy when they encounter their peers being cyberbullied. This study aims to investigate the circumstances under which bystanders (youths) will be motivated to intervene in the cyberbullying instances. It uses the model of Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) to find out whether the components (Attitudes, Subjective Norms and Perceived Behavioural Control) play an influencing role in motivating bystanders’ behavioural intentions, which is, to report their friend’s cyberbullying episode.

If the spokesperson is indeed the face of the organization, how can we utilize this important channel of communication to enhance perceptions of an organization in the midst of a crisis? While verbal strategies are important, how they are conveyed by the spokesperson, i.e., the nonverbal characteristics of the messenger, is arguably just as important. The authors developed the new Facial Credibility Model to examine the influence of facial cues and how it affects spokesperson credibility as well as the consequent effect of source credibility on organizational perception.

An art exhibition consisting of artworks produced by students who were enrolled in a drawing course in the Nanyang Technological University was held for two weeks, and online platforms such as Facebook were used for the promotion of the exhibition. Pre and post-test survey data was collected from 113 Singaporean undergraduates aged 19 to 25 and two focus groups discussions were conducted in groups of five. Results were d iscussed accord ing to the elaboration likelihood model and selective exposure theory, specifically that art can only bring about the first stage of attitud e change, while d eeply entrenched values are d ifficult to change with just an art campaign.

As d ifferent cultures come into contact with each other, it is imperative to examine the effects of cross-cultural communication, one of which is the proliferation of inter-cultural romantic relationships. The Asian-female Caucasian-male intercultural couple is of particular interest as some studies examine how they deliberately seek to date each other. In the context of Singapore, ‘Sarong Party Girl’ is the label given to Asian women who have Caucasian partners and negative connotations are attached to the term. The focus of this study examines how interaction between the Asian female and the Caucasian male influences either party’s cultural identities. Previous studies done in the U.S. examine how Asians as the minority group date white men as a symbol of their acculturation with the larger society. However, in the context of Singapore, Caucasian men are the minority. Examining both the Asian female and the Caucasian male in the context of Singapore provid es a better picture of how both parties’ cultural id entities are affected when they are involved in an intimate relationship.

Around 10 percent of the world’s population, or 650 million people, live with a disability. This number is expected to increase as the global population ages (WHO, 2006). The role of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has been shown to enhance the development of health, education and livelihoods. However, current disability studies lack substantial interaction with technology (Goggin, 2006). Our study aims to address this gap by examining the benefits that People with Disabilities (PWDs) derive from ICT and how these benefits lead to empowerment.

Specifically, we examined both direct and indirect media effects on individuals’ pro-environmental behavioral intentions, and integrate the constructs of attitudes, descriptive, subjective, and injunctive norms into the model. Furthermore, we used the expanded model to examine the influences on three dimensions of pro- environmental behavioral intentions, namely energy conservation, recycling, and civic engagement. We tested the proposed extended framework on a random sample of 1,144 Singaporeans utilizing computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI).

Extant literature has shown that sensory cues, such as scent, affect how visual and visuo motor tasks are carried out. While many cross-modal studies have explored the interactions between olfactory and visual cues, little research has examined the effects of scent on visual attention specifically. Our research aimed to determine whether scents can enhance visual attention towards congruent stimuli in the context of an advertisement. Our collective findings demonstrate an olfactory priming effect on visual selective attention, where a scent can enhance visual attention towards specific cues in an advertisement if they are directly or semantically congruent with the scent. Implications of the findings for advertisers and marketers are discussed.

Daughters of God is a documentary about a Hindu temple built by Thirunankais (Indian transsexuals) in Malaysia. It is a story that focuses on Anusha and Varsha, who attend the temple during days of prayers but roam the streets as prostitutes at night. The temple is funded by only the Thirunankais, and a majority of them work in the same profession. Despite being different in terms of their gender and their choice of livelihood, through the presence of the temple, the Thirunankais have gradually gained acceptance from the people living in the neighbourhood.

Creative individuals (i.e., copywriters and art directors) face many challenges, some unique to the advertising industry, in their attempts to meet the competing demands of their work and personal commitments. Our study examines the various work-life conflicts that creative individuals in Singapore face, the factors that contribute to these conflicts, and the effects work-life harmony has on creativity. In-depth interviews with four human resource personnel and eight creative individuals were conducted, and the websites of 17 advertising agencies were content-analysed. The Grounded Theory approach was employed for the data analysis of the study as it allows for a holistic exploration and flexibility for new emergent themes.
