    Three files: tales (mostly in English), images and writing exercises. The stories compiled in the attachment are called stories of nothing, as they are built from coincidences and are based on real events: as they happened, they were slippery and difficult to remember. With the work of time—and practice—they became stories: picked up, linked to events and occasionally come with some advice. Like in Walter Benjamin’s essay on Nikolai Leskov—the Storyteller—the stories eschew the premises of journalism and of authoring. In his words, the crafts constitute the home of a higher level of storytelling. Since they deal with coincidence the stories of Nothing are connected to Surrealism, as explained by André Breton and Paul Eluard (Minotaure). In some sense they oppose the Hidden Hand of Liberalism, with the Hidden Hand of History: as necessity finds its way through desire and dream to display in coincidence. A number of the attached stories the events utfolder as though there was a hidden film director at work, and the story teller became unwittingly involved and tangled in a movie take. Of course, there was no such thing, which is why they are called stories of nothing. At the bottom of the coloumn of files to the left, the reader will also find some writing exercises, that will help to prepare her for stories like these. It takes som effort and toil to get there, but in the end they will yield to writing. The stories were compiled in the early days of the Covid 19 pandemic, on a FB group support page called Mora til Herman. It closed, as the pandemic progressed, the 23rd april 2020. The definition of DESIGN used here, determines a two-tiered process of 1) pathfinding and 2) goalseeking, through sustain trail and search of mark-making (writing or drawing) that hatches when the two tiers start to converge/coincide. Design searches and queries between what never works and what always works: it explores the slim possibilities in between, in quest of moving from a current situation to a preferred one (Herbert Simon).

    The maritime industry is indispensable to many countries as trade represents the lifeblood of many economies across the globe, including Singapore. Due to economies of scale, sea transport is highly employed for trades, transporting over 80% of the world’s trade by volume. The maritime industry is of high economic importance in Singapore, accounting for 7% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Production (GDP). In a world increasingly characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA), the Sea Transport Industry Transformation Map (ITM) was launched in 2018, with a refreshed version released in 2022 in an endeavour to safeguard the competitiveness of Singapore’s maritime industry. A few unprecedented global events have taken place since 2018. In particular, Covid-19 upturned the world and brought forth the “new normal”, which includes an increased focus on sustainability, digitalisation, and work-life balance. From the Sea Transport ITM, developing a future-ready maritime workforce is one of Singapore’s key strategies and it involves attracting, retaining, and retraining talent. Based on current literature, it is only possible to gather the various talent initiatives developed by the different government bodies in response to the ITM and the industry's general need to attract, retain and upskill talent. As such, the research gaps with regards to Singapore’s maritime talent strategy include the current state of the maritime industry and whether maritime companies are putting in similar efforts to attract, retain and upskill talent. To gain insights into the industry’s current state of attracting, retaining, and retraining talent including other realistic issues overlooked, surveys and interviews were carried out to gather quantitative and qualitative data. Primary research efforts revealed that the overall push factor of the maritime industry is more than its pull factor. In addition, the government generally puts in more effort to attract talent into the industry than the companies but there are often limitations. Other issues uncovered include the word of mouth as a double-edged sword in attracting talent, low employee engagement by companies in retaining talent, the limited support provided by companies in retraining talent and people’s lack of awareness of the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) co-funding schemes for them to utilise in their training. The most challenging aspect of developing a future-ready maritime workforce is aligning the maritime companies with Maritime Singapore's vision as some companies may have tunnel vision. Companies also have the autonomy to decide on the extent they will contribute to a future-ready maritime workforce in Singapore. Hence, the study suggests establishing a maritime association to provide more direct support for all maritime stakeholders and a multilateral synergy model to remind the industry of the interdependence of the three key maritime strategies – sustainability, digitalisation and talent. Overall, maritime companies must and will need to generate more value. Bachelor of Science (Maritime Studies)

    Singapore is a country known for importing most of their food with over 90% imported. However, the past few years has taught us that food security is something that can be changed drastically quickly. From lockdown restrictions thru COVID 19 to war breaking out between Russia and Ukraine, it has hindered the global food exports and affected us. This highlights the importance to strengthen our local food production. In addition, land space in Singapore is limited and not much area can be used for companies to grow local produces. Area used in housing is the highest which can be a solution to increase food production. In this project, we will be looking at the current innovation and technologies available in indoor planting and ways we could improve in them to fit into our everyday lives. With the usage of sensors and processors plus data to analyze plant growth. Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)

    At the individual level, physical activity is one of the interventions that has been recommended to prevent burnout during COVID-19. In a post-pandemic context where organisations have considerably changed, the promotion of physical activity as an organisational intervention still appears to be very useful to prevent burnout. However, there are some paradoxes unexplained in the scientific literature that hinder our understanding of the relationship between physical activity and burnout, and ultimately, the use of physical activity as a resource to prevent burnout. The purpose of this chapter is therefore to shed light on certain contradictions regarding physical activity and its potential benefits to help prevent burnout through the recovery process. Specifically, we attempt to provide some answers to the following critically important questions emerging from our reading of conflicting studies on the relationship between physical activity and burnout: Is physical activity practiced during work time as beneficial for health as when done during non-work time? Do only sedentary office workers benefit from occupational physical activity?

    The COVID-19 pandemic has increased consumers’ reliance on online food delivery (OFD) platforms, a trend that is expected to continue even after the pandemic. The surge in OFD orders has resulted in OFD platforms facing some difficulty in keeping up with the demand. Furthermore, if more labour regulations are imposed on the OFD industry, OFD platforms possibly face a more challenging business environment due to their reliance on freelance riders to provide delivery services. Thus, OFD platforms must remain adaptable and consider further promoting the use of self pick-up as a viable alternative to delivery. This will allow OFD platforms to diversify their service offerings and meet the growing demand for OFD services in the future. This report aims to address the use of self pick-up on OFD platforms, a topic that has not been widely studied in existing literature. By exploring the key factors which influence customers to use self pick-up over door-to-door delivery on OFD platforms in Singapore, suggestions can be made to improve the self pick-up customer experience and encourage its adoption. A qualitative method of data collection was employed where semi-structured interviews were conducted with OFD platform users to gain first-hand insights into the preferences of OFD platform users. An analysis of the interview responses using inductive thematic analysis revealed three key factors that influence customers to use self pick-up on OFD platforms in Singapore: convenience, price, and greater control. These insights contribute to research in the OFD sector since an enhanced understanding of customer preferences will allow OFD platforms to gain insights on how to better encourage their users to opt for self pick-up. Further research can be done to explore alternative last-mile delivery options such as self pick-up from smart lockers. Bachelor of Science (Maritime Studies)

    These essays were written as columns for the Financial Express daily newspaper in India. This collection begins in December 2019, so technically the first two pieces were not written in the “Year of Coronavirus.” But they provide a good starting point. The collection ends in December 2020: there are 26 essays in all. All of these pieces appeared in the Financial Express, in print and online, with varying lags from the dates of writing, which are noted after each essay. The newspaper versions invariably had different, more elaborate titles, but the ones below are my original, somewhat spare, title choices. I hope that reading these pieces in sequence and together will provide a consistent and useful perspective on Indian economic policy in a year that has been truly extraordinary. I have not changed any of the text, so these represent my real-time and evolving understandings of India’s situation over this period. Many of the essays are about the response to the pandemic, so they focus on non-economic aspects of policy but the economic implications are, I would like to think, always in the analysis. Two of the essays focus on the US – its pandemic response and its presidential election – neither is about India’s policies at all, but each has, I hope, some lessons for India.
