MOBILE technology development is at a stage to pose significant threats to our kids especially those just encountering cyberspace now typically the tweens (primary school ages). While we cannot discount the benefits or benign uses of mobile devices like 3G/3.5G mobile phones and internet-capable music and gaming devices, it is critical for parents to note the signficant potential dangers that children face, often in an innocent manner. In this context, an online cyber park to help inform in an accessible way about dangers in cyberspace will be available to Singaporeans by mid-2011. The Virtual Cyber Security Park is a collaboration between the Cyber Security Awareness Alliance and the National Crime Prevention Council.

WESTERN tradition traces the origin of the first "Valentine" to the 3rd century AD. But much earlier, 15 February was celebrated as a Roman fertility festival, Lupercalia marking the start of spring and dedicated to Faunus, Roman god of agriculture (equivalent to the Greek god Pan). Later in the Middle Ages, the Valentine celebration was linked to 14 February, the day "birds began to pair" after winter breaks for spring. With spring comes the thawing of spirits after the long and cold winter, and thoughts lift to a new cycle of life and growth, that we fondly call romance. This year 2010 is special, as the start of the Chinese Spring festival (Lunar New Year) coincides with Valentine's Day. The business significance of Valentine's Day is underscored by a Greeting Card Association statistic, that an estimated billion cards are sent during this period, making it the second-largest card-sending holiday of the year after Christmas (2.6 billions cards exchanged).
