Many people say that you cannot easily catch a person who is lying. But it is not difficult to know when and how you can catch an individual lie. Yes, it may take tough practices and trainings but you can benefit from it. We all know that police investigators can easily determine when a person is lying. On the other hand, an average person can do identify a person when he is lying but not to the point that he can also do what a professional can do. Sometimes, average people can be better compared to expert individuals but this doesn’t mean that you should not trust a human lie detector.
If you want to know when a person is lying, you need to look for its inconsistencies. For instance, when a gun-shooting incident happened and you interview a person who is near the vicinity. Now, when you ask him about what happened. Always listen to what he says. If the person says that he heard a gunshot and run he ran away without looking, there is an inconsistency. How did it happen? Actually, his statement was correct. He heard the shot and ran away. However, the inconsistency here is that he should have react when he ran away. He must have looked after he heard the shot and ran away. They initial reaction of a person when he heard a gunshot is that he will look on where the sound comes from and what happen. For this scenario, you will notice that the person is lying.
Having a dental check-up is very important because only an expert tooth specialist can see and know what the condition of your teeth is. However, you cannot always rely on the capability of an orthodontist in taking care of your teeth. In fact, all of us can do brushing because in the first place, we are being taught by our parents since we are young.
How often should we visit a dentist? An orthodontist examines the teeth if there’s any malfunction inside and outside the teeth. Basically, dental visit is only required every six months. This is to maintain the good health of the teeth and keep the gums healthier.
What usually happens during the check-up? In Singapore, part of the dental examination is the checking of teeth for tooth decay. Without proper dental care there is a great possibility of tooth damage. Also, evaluating the gums is included in the routine. This is to test if the gums are healthy or not. On the other hand, it may seem not included on the procedure but a dental hygienist will perform a head check-up. In this procedure, a dental physician will typically identify if there’s something unusual on the formation of the bones in the head. Also, the same examination will be executed on the neck.
In addition, an orthodontist examines the mouth to look for signs of vitamin deficiencies, oral cancer, diabetes and many more. Normally, the tooth physician will also perform an examination on your saliva and movement of the face specifically jaw movements. In general, these dental doctors will always emphasize the importance of visit dental visit and tooth care.
Most of the messages we get are the ones that pass through our vocal chords, however, those are not the only messages that our mouth can deliver. As it turns out, our teeth, gums and surrounding tissues also have a say in our health. If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the mouth is actually the window to the body. It has the capacity to show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection.
On that note, here are 3 sample messages that can lead you to following a warning that your mouth could possibly be giving you…
1. Headache with flat, worn teeth. This can be a sign for big – time stress. Many tooth – grinders tend to get shocked when they are told to be one. In reality, teeth grinding is actually a common sign of emotional or psychological stress. Headaches are usually the result for excessive teeth clenching. This is caused by the spasms in the muscles. For this to be avoided, you can try using a mouth guard at night.
2. Cracked and crumbled teeth. For older adults, the enamel in their teeth becomes thin and almost translucent that this results to its vulnerability to appear to be in a crumbling state. This is common among adults but it doesn’t mean that it people at a young age is not susceptible to it. In fact, they still are. It can happen at any age.
3. Crusty dentures. Despite having quality dental care, older people often use dentures still because they were somehow too late in taking care of their teeth. However, in having these false installations, these don’t give them the guarantee that they are free from any health risks.
The summer is officially over and every student is coming back to school here in Singapore. If you have a child with special needs, you are anxious because of many things. It is understandable considering their state but it is important that you do not impede your child’s development. You still need to send him/her to school no matter how hard it is.
It is crucial that you understand your fears and eventually face it for the greater good of your child. Here are some fears of parents with special children and what you can do about it:
- The child doesn’t know how to talk: At three, children with special needs are not that verbal.

To facilitate ease of communicating, you can teach your kid to use pictures and other signs when communicating.
- The child has behaviour problems: Your child has behaviour problems; he/she throws tantrums. You have to let the teacher know how he/she can deal with your kid.

Actually, Singapore Police was older that any individual who lived here in the Singapore because of the fact that the Singapore Police Force (SPF) was established in 1819. In fact, it is the oldest command group in the country. During the past, there are only 15 people (1 Chief Police Officer is the name of Mr. Francis James Bernard, 1 prison officer and a sergeant along with the 12 patrol officers) who protect Singapore from criminals and its enemies.
In 1826, it was being reformed and united with Penang and Malacca. When the population increases, there are many major disorders that happen so that SPF can continue to its duty – to serve and protect people.
In the past years, it was in 1890 that policemen are required to wear songkok (a hat that is commonly worn by Muslim brothers and sisters), black shoes, trousers and long-sleeved coat. In the 19th century, police equipment and strategies are being modified since the appearance of fingerprint system and criminal registry. During the 1900s, the construction of the Police Headquarters at South Bridge Road started.
Today, SPF has Police Force Guidance and Training Center together with its communications Branch. Also, 2,000 tough policemen are added to the pool in which it made Singapore a better place to live. In 1946, there were some major changes in the organization and Volunteer Special Constabulary was established. In 1948, the country’s Police Force founded the Radio Division and the police emergency hotline ‘999’ began. In the 50s and 60s, Singapore was challenged by riots. Thus, the creation of the Riot Squad prospers.
Today, there are a lot of plans and development in the SPF so that they can continue to give Singaporeans a loyal protection.
You are living in penury the week before your payday but when your payday has come, you excessively splurge. After a few days, you are again eeking out your last few pennies for the next payday. While you eek out your pennies, you miserably scour your cupboards and see what meal you can make. That is an unhappy experience. Unfortunately there are Singaporeans who experience this kind of dilemma.
You should not live this way. You need to find ways to make your cash last until the next payday without sacrificing many things. Here are some tips that you can use to make your cash last until the next payday:
It is easy to spend cash. You will not notice it go sometimes. When you are purchasing a good, you need to use cash. Do not depend on your credit card because it can worsen your financial standing. When you go outside, leave your credit card. That is the best thing to do.
The next thing that you should do is cost cut. You have to cut back on your luxuries. Evaluate which things are essential and non-essential. Men and women spend most of their money on cosmetics, clothes, social gatherings and eating. Cost cutting means saving money.
If you are serious about making your cash last until the next payday, you need to track whatever you earn and spend. If you are into it, you can even make a spreadsheet and detail your monthly earning and spending. You should prioritize your mortgage or rent following other costs like bills and insurance. Do not forget about your living expenses.
Look for ways to lower bills
Finally, you have to look for ways to lower your bills. This sound difficult but when you get the feel of it, things will be easier on your part. For example, you can lower your electricity bill by turning off the light when you are not using it.
That should do. Budgeting money is difficult especially if you think that you do not earn enough. Singapore is an expensive place to stay but with proper budget management, you can get by. If you are in financial trouble, you really need to tell your parents or friends so they can help you or give you support.
Good luck on your expenses. Hopefully with the things mentioned above, your money will last the next payday.
