HOLLYWOOD ACTORS EARN UP TO $75 MILLION THIS YEAR

THEREALSINGAPORE 22 July 2014 - 12:09pm

Hollywood is increasingly in the business of making movies with disposable actors — performers who are almost interchangeable and easily replaced. The special effects and bombastic action sequences required for the modern blockbuster cost many millions of dollars. Any money studios can save by casting less-famous actors is money that can go to the bottom line. And if those actors can be easily swapped out in sequels, all the better. A disposable actor doesn’t really have the leverage to demand a big pay hike.

OLD CIVIL SERVANT: PATHETIC THAT WE’VE COME TO THIS STATE

THEREALSINGAPORE 22 July 2014 - 11:41am

When the PM LHL said: “we cannot expect Ministers never to make mistakes or never to have mistakes happen on their watch in their ministries. It is not possible – this is a very big organisation and it is a very complicated world, and even with the best intent in the world, from time to time, things will go wrong.”…. This implicit means that anybody can screw up and it’s OK and you can continue business as usual.
