A key intent of the SkillsFuture movement is to empower individuals to take ownership of acquiring new skills and to deepen their skills throughout life. This aims to enable Singaporeans to be adaptable, and develop the skills that are needed for their current jobs, and jobs of the future. The SkillsFuture movement encompasses a range of initiatives that target various segments to support them in their pursuit of lifelong learning and skills mastery. These include SkillsFuture Credit, SkillsFuture Earn and Learn, SkillsFuture Mid-career Enhanced Subsidy and the SkillsFuture Study Awards. What has been the learning curve? We have made steady progress and built up some momentum in each of the key SkillsFuture initiatives. As a result of these initiatives, more companies and individuals have participated in some form of training. The training participation rate, which is defined as the number of training places funded by the government, increased from 8,30,000 in 2015 to about 9,20,000 in 2016.

Light-Bulb Moment Founded in 2010, REConnect is one of the older ventures in this business. In seven years, the company has evolved from being a trader in renewable energy certificates (RECs) to building its own suite of energy efficiency products. Its focus on the latter continues to be in the renewables spacedata analytics for wind and solar farms to provide 15-minute granularity on generation, for example — even as it seeks to expand deeper into the analytics space. While REConnect controls around 45% of the REC market in India, it’s the technology business that Nuwal is most excited about. According to the Union Ministry of Power, India’s renewable energy capacity is expected to go from 50 GW (gigawatts, 1 GW= 1 billion watts) to 175 GW in a decade, and segments such as performance monitoring will explode in parallel, giving ventures such as REConnect a shot in the arm.

Mother of God. Trump's loss to Hillary Clinton in Virginia might have been 212,031 votes instead of 212,030. And don't get me started on all those coal miners in the Rust Belt who bolted for Trump because his hair got russled (polling data for this assertion is unavailable). Or take this ludicrous Newsweek piece by Alexander Nazaryan, which un-ironically calls Fallon the "least woke comedian" in late-night. It opens by dramatically contrasting, among other politically charged segments, Jimmy Kimmel's heartfelt monologue about his infant son's heart condition with Fallon interviewing Amy Schumer about her new movie.

NEW DELHI: Maruti Suzuki has been achieving new feats each passing day. Earlier this month, it became the first automaker to hit a market capitalisation (m-cap) of Rs 2 lakh crore on a closing basis. Now, it is eying driving Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra duo out of the m-cap race altogether. At Wednesday’s trading price, m-cap of Maruti Suzuki stood at Rs 2.12 lakh crore, which was just 5 per cent away from the combined valuation of Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra duo, which stood at Rs 2.2 lakh crore. While analysts insisted that it would not be fair to compare Maruti Suzuki’s valuations with those of Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra, given the different segments, product mix and margin profiles these automakers deal in, they largely see Maruti Suzuki as a solid long-term play. “It will definitely cross the level some day, given its outstanding performance irrespective of the difficulties seen in the economy.

Geely has a number of sedan models within the A, B, C and D segments under Emgrand, Vision and GC9 line-up, which generates 12,000 to 25,000 unit sales per month for Geely. PublicInvest Research opined the deal with Geely is necessary as it could accelerate Proton’s turnaround plans, while a major overhang on DRB-Hicom’s valuation is potentially removed. The research house has lifted DRB-Hicom’s target price to RM1.82 from RM1.31, but its “neutralcall is retained. Following the deal, Hong Leong Investment Bank (HLIB) Research, which is maintaining a “buycall with a higher target price of RM2.58, said the immediate benefits to DRB-Hicom include retaining part of Proton’s valuable non-core assets such as the Shah Alam land and a 40% stake in Proton City, as well as cash proceeds of RM560 million from the Lotus disposal. The research house believes the disposal will partially relieve the burden on DRB-Hicom, which can re-focus its resources into other strategic businesses.
