Additionally, it is amazing for me to discover how the local situational contexts that contributed to the “push” factors for these migrants always link back to the happenings around the world. For example, Mr Ng migrated due to political strife in his home country, and Ms Low’s push factor was due to the legitimacy crisis that Hong Kong was going through. A safe country is when one country’s politics is stable and that is why Singapore is such an attractive country to migrants because the politics here is stable (ruling by one party) and there are no natural disasters. Furthermore, what makes Singapore attractive is because it is also a migrant state where it is made of migrants from
Mills (1959) Theorised that every individual was shaped by the society they lived in, and vice versa, to a certain extent so did people help shape their society to suit them, “By the fact of this living, he contributes, however minutely, to the shaping of society and to the course of its history, even as he is made by society and by its historical push and shove.” (Mills, 1959: 12). With saying that, sociological imagination allowed people to receive necessary expertise and skills of comprehension to engage in political issues. Mills’ ‘Personal troubles of Milieu’ is all troubles and issues that individuals experience, however sociological imagination enables people to see that it is actually the structure and arrangements of societies, as well as failure of institutions in a society that cause an individual to experience troubles and issues (Mills, 1959). In a society, privileged people believe in individual responsibilities and controlling their own lives, however the less privileged see aspects such as race, culture, class and gender as fundamental factors in shaping their lives.

It's kept us youthful, dynamic, and entrepreneurial. Welcoming immigrants youthful and dynamic and other words makes us stronger nation we are. Unfortunately some immigrants who said not to play by the rules and into the US the legal way but is it really humane to send them back to their country? Leaving their families behind?

Introduction The Sociological Imagination Defined The sociological Imagination is a form of analytic thinking, a concept that enables one to take into context the set societal patterns that affect and impact both an individual and the wider society. These patterns are characterised as personal troubles and/or societal issues. Sociologist C. Wright Mills was one of the initial social scientists to have written on this concept, in one of his books titled The Sociological Imagination (1959). According to Mills (1959), the task of sociology was to understand the relationship between individuals and the society in which they lived. The following essay seeks to discuss the concept of sociological imagination, its relevance to the underlying topic of discussion; the middle school and teenage bullying quandary in the United States, with the conclusion summing up the value of the sociological imagination as well as its link and relevance to the topic being discussed.

This does not mean that a solution is sought only by industrial action. National Trade Union Congress (NTUC) is a national federation of trade unions of workers in Singapore. Its objective is to participate in social and economic development for the advancement of the country, worker’s well-being and of co-operation with management and government.

The Singapore Story is the history of Singapore written by Singapore’s first Prime Minister, Mr Lee Kuan Yew, as a narrative based on historical facts and evidence. The main purpose of the book was to instil national consciousness in individualistic Singaporean youths by narrating countless obstacles that Singapore had to overcome to achieve its current global status. However, its historical objectivity is disputable since it is written from the Singaporean viewpoint and may be biased towards the Singaporean government. In his statement regarding the Singapore Story, Mr Lee Hsien Loong raised two main conceptual issues based on two aspects of the nature of history.

The tangible structures built in economics, military and housing at the early stage of building a Singapore nation are significant to its survival. Fifty years has passed, these structures have achieved great success.
