Singapore Prize For Books by Singaporean Authors

singapore prize

A new award has been created to recognise outstanding published works by Singaporean authors. The prize is open to writers in any of the country’s official languages – Chinese, English and Malay. The books are to be published in Singapore and must have been published within the past five years. In addition to the main prize, there are subsidiary awards for translations and for works of literature, education and non-fiction.

The inaugural award was given to archaeologist John Miksic for his book, Singapore and the Silk Road of the Sea, 1300-1800. The 491-page tome won the inaugural Singapore History Prize after being selected by a jury of historians and academics, including a professor at NUS’ Department of History Wang Gungwu. The four-member panel had 29 submissions to consider. Prof Miksic’s work reveals that Singapore was once a major trading port in the 1300s. He started excavations at Fort Canning in 1984 and later at Empress Place, Old Parliament House and other sites. His finds include glass shards, bronze bowls and coins. His discoveries show that the city was home to a flourishing community before Sir Stamford Raffles founded it in 1819.

In addition to the top five winners, the ceremony will be accompanied by a series of events called Earthshot Week from November 6 to 12. Global leaders, businesses and investors will convene in Singapore with the prize winners and finalists to explore ventures that can bring about “tangible action to repair the planet,” the prize’s organizers said. Guests will also be treated to performances by renowned musicians and artists.

The first prize ceremony was held in London and then in Boston last year. The 2023 event will be held in Singapore, where the winners will receive a grant of up to PS1 million to support their projects that aim to protect the environment. The Prince of Wales will walk the green carpet at the ceremony and present the prizes to the five winners. The awards ceremony will also be filmed for broadcast. This will be the third Earthshot Prize ceremony, but it is the first time that the event is taking place in Asia.

The SGPA Dataset

SGPA is a dataset containing tens of thousands of geochemical observations and associated metadata. This project is designed to support the scientific community in understanding environmental changes on Earth through time. The initial focus has been on assembling a well-vetted data set that is tractable to multivariate statistical analyses, accounting for multiple geological and methodological biases. This first phase of the project focused on the Neoproterozoic and Paleozoic, with future phases planned to capture a broader range of geologic time, data types, and geography.

The SGPA database contains a unique set of chemical data for sedimentary rock samples collected from global locations and across many geological conditions, representing the broadest and most diverse collection of sedimentary geochemical data ever assembled. The SGPA dataset is complemented by additional data from other projects and sources, including NGDB and the OZCHEM whole-rock database. A primary goal of SGP has been to compile a high-quality dataset that is readily available for the research community, and to develop methods for making best use of this data.

The SGP dataset is an important tool in the development of new computational models of sedimentary formations and lithologic processes. The data are provided free of charge, and are used to develop statistical and probabilistic methods for analyzing and understanding geological problems. This will help scientists better understand the relationships between the environment and natural resources, and improve the ability to predict future trends.

SGP pools kini is a great way for people to bet online, but there are some important things you should know before using it. Firstly, you should only gamble with money that you can afford to lose. This will help you avoid getting into financial trouble, which can be a big problem for some people. Secondly, it’s also important to know that you can’t win every single bet you make, so don’t get discouraged if you lose a few bets.

In addition to providing long formatted data in the @Data slot (from prepareSGP), this function provides a wrapper for producing student growth percentiles and projections/trajectories. These values are based upon priorly established coefficient matrices, derived from a stratified random sample. If the argument is NULL, no stratified SGPs are calculated.

SGPs are a measure of the amount of progress a student has made relative to academically-similar students with similar latent achievement traits. However, studies have shown that SGPs estimated from standardized test scores suffer from large estimation errors. This results in noisy measures of true SGPs, defined as the average of a student’s current latent SGP over all students with that same previous latent SGP. The figure below shows SGPs by subject and cohort. Group mean differences are reported for gender, race/ethnicity, and home language. Note that the groups are ordered from most negative to most positive, although the averages of the math and ELA group mean differences tend to be quite similar. The EXCLUDE statements specify individual terminal IDs or record IDs to exclude from the set of X-SGP records that this X-SGP record cross-references.
