Ageing Population of Singapore has JOBS today…but will they tomorrow – itsReal

It’s 50/50 if you live past 85, better odds than the integrated resorts will offer you.

“If it is the tight labour market that’s pushing the participation up, then when the tight labour market goes, will companies then push out older workers? And the older workers will again be in the same situation as in a couple of years ago,” questioned Stephen Lee, president of the Singapore National Employers’ Federation (SNEF).

“The few important things people continue to talk about is, can I believe that there is a 50 percent chance of living beyond 85. That’s one of the most fundamental issue, because once they don’t believe that, the whole scheme is nonsense. So that is the very important part of our work – how to let people know that this is a fact and not a fiction,” explained Professor Lim, who chairs the National Longevity Insurance Committee.

CSI:NY to Bring Murder to Second Life – itsReal

The hit CBS show CSI:NY will bring murder to the hit virtual world, Second Life, on Oct. 24, CSI creator Anthony Zuiker announced today at the Virtual Worlds conference in San Jose.

Zuiker revealed details of the previously announced project–including special areas of Second Life where the murder will play out and a special Second Life client (“viewer”) created to accommodate an expected crowd of CSI fans who are new to SL–during his keynote address at the two-day conference. (Full disclosure: My husband is an employee of Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life.)

In the episode, actor Gary Sinise, playing a detective investigating a real-life murder, winds up tracking the killer into Second Life, Zuiker said. Fans of the show that are new to SL will be invited to join–and investigate the case themselves–via a link on CBS.com that will direct them to the special, newbie-friendly viewer created by The Electric Sheep Company (which is partly owned by CBS). Electric Sheep has also created the version of Manhattan where SL residents will investigate the crime.

(A spoiler follows the image below, showing Sinise standing in front of his Second Life avatar.)

On TV, the crime will not be solved until an episode set to air Feb. 6, Zuiker said.

Zuiker believes the project represents the future of television.

“The days of watching TV at 9 o’clock on-air live are pretty much over with,” he said. “We really have to figure out a way to make sure the younger generation and the older generation embraces the new way of how to watch entertainment, and that’s cross-platform. And the best experience you can possibly have right now is Second Life.”

Seed Money: USD 2mil Funding Virtual-World Innovations – itsReal

The MacArthur foundation is accepting applications until Oct. 15 in two categories: one for “entrepreneurs and builders of new digital environments for informal learning,” with prizes of $250,000 and $100,000; the other for “communicators in connecting, mobilizing, circulating or translating new ideas around digital media and learning,” with prizes from $30,000 to $75,000. Winners are to be announced in January. 

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation continues to pour money into explorations of digital media and virtual worlds — and we’re not talking Linden dollars here.

The giant Chicago philanthropy is creating prizes totaling US$2 million to recognize innovation in digital media and learning. It also is funding a series of programs at the Second Life Community convention, to be held Aug. 24-26 in Chicago. (For the uninitiated, Linden dollars are the currency of that online virtual world known as Second Life.)

MacArthur said the new awards are part of the five-year, $50 million program it announced last fall to explore the influence of digital technologies on young people’s learning, play and civic participation.
