在泰国加拉信府(Kalasin)省Sahatsakhan区,据称一名11岁女孩被其祖父强奸致使怀孕后死于妊娠并发症。

据《中国报》报道,这名女孩于2020年11月被其祖父强奸,并开始出现宫外孕症状(受精卵在子宫外植入时发生的情况)。据NHS称,受精卵在子宫外植入会导致怀孕期间出现严重的健康风险。

女孩的母亲说,在2020年11月底,她的女儿生病了,抱怨生殖器疼痛,随后被送往医院治疗,并发现生殖器处有撕裂伤。

这位母亲随后向警方报案,但案件直到2020年12月6日才有进展。就在那时,医生告诉她,她的女儿发生了宫外孕。

女孩开始出现严重的晨吐症状,且病情急剧恶化。据泰国《国民报》报道,当医生注射促血药(一种促进血液流动,尤其是来月经的药物或药剂)来帮助她时,她会呕吐食物和药物,且治疗无效。

在2021年1月15日,这位母亲说,她的女儿不断呕吐,并且痛得发抖,最终死在了她的怀里。随后,她女儿的尸体被送往孔敬(Khon Kaen)的Srinagrind医院进行尸检,并于第二天(1月16日)在她家中举行了葬礼。

这位母亲补充道,就在五年前,她和女儿的父亲离婚了。她说,女儿不上学的时候,会经常去爷爷奶奶家玩,但万万没想到会发生这种事。

与此同时,Sahatsakhan警方已经收集了女孩案件的相关证据,他们将很快向当地法院申请逮捕令。

Talent shortage in Singapore with 8 in 10 employers reporting difficulty in filling roles

Jun 15, 2022 | 🚀 Fathership

In ManpowerGroup Singapore's Q2 Employment Outlook Survey, the company revealed positive sentiments regarding pay increments and bonuses. In the latest edition of this report, for Q3, the sentiments have shifted towards hiring between the July to September 2022 period - labelled as "a record high" in the report.

In brief, Singapore’s net employment outlook (NEO) is at +40%, with the previous "record high" being in Q4 2011 at +31%. Further, employers surveyed in all 11 sectors (i.e. communications & media, manufacturing, and construction) anticipate positive headcount growth in Q3, with not-for-profit employers reporting "strongest" hiring intentions at 67%.

Despite the optimistic outlook, Singapore’s talent shortage level has been found to be at "its highest in 16 years", with more than eight in 10 (84%) employers reporting difficulty in filling roles. This statistic represented a 20% increase from 2021. Prior to that, talent shortage levels were quite high in 2018 at 56%, and in 2010 at 53%. According to the findings, the most difficult-to-fill roles are in restaurants & hotels (97%), other services (89%), and construction (88%).

That said, the "most sought-after" professions are: IT & data, operation & logistics, sales & marketing, manufacturing & production, and customer facing & front office. On top of that, employers are also looking at soft skills such as critical thinking & analysis, creativity & originality, resilience & adaptability, leadership & social influence, and reasoning & problem solving.

"The shift from pandemic to endemic has given companies greater clarity on their business outlooks," explained Linda Teo, Country Manager, ManpowerGroup Singapore. "Employers are ramping up their hiring due to a combination of factors like pent-up demand for manpower, employee attrition, and shortage of workers with the right skillsets."

Dissecting the local numbers

Filtering Singapore's NEO figure, analysts discovered that:

  • More than half (52%) of employers plan to hire;
  • More than one in 10 (12%) of employers expect a staffing decrease;
  • Close to four in 10 (35%) of employers plan to keep workforce levels steady, and
  • Less than five in 10 (2%) of employers are undecided about the hiring/talent scene.

In addition to not-for-profit employers having strong hiring intentions, those in other services (professional, scientific & technical, and administrative & support) similarly have positive intentions at 59%. These employers are then followed by those in banking, finance, insurance & real estate (56%), wholesale & retail trade (50%), and restaurants & hotels (46%).

A global perspective

Of the more than 40,000 employers surveyed across the globe, many are likewise expecting to hire more workers in the Q3 2022. According to findings, the global NEO is at +33% - which revealed hiring intentions to "increase year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter" respectively at +18% and +4%. In terms of per country/territory data, Mexico ranks top with a +59% NEO, while India has a +51%; Mainland China +29%, and Hong Kong +11%.

India's NEO is the strongest in the APAC region for the second consecutive quarter, up 13% since Q2. As for Hong Kong's NEO, it improved by 8% compared to Q2 2022, and by 10% compared to the previous year.

Looking at the hiring/talent scene, analysts discovered that digital roles continue to drive "most demand" with employers in IT & technology (+44%). This is followed by those in banking, finance, insurance & real estate (+38%), construction (33%), and manufacturing (33%).
