|The dinners are held at "secret" locations in Singapore|
"One self-proclaimed world class higher education institution has go further to fire many existing local professors at 55 by not giving tenure to them. Many of these early retired professors are actually not bad but just not in the correct political circle. Instead, many under-performing PRC or Indian professors are given tenure to work till 65. Government talks so much of getting people to work till 65 and its related institution is doing the reverse. Many people are just silent about these injustice."
The university is not named. We do know Dr Denisa Kera, 36, is a professor of interactive media design at the National University of Singapore. We do not know why we need someone from the Czech Republic to teach interactive media design in Singapore. Maybe the internet speeds there are superior to what local ISPs can provide. Dr Kera can't have too busy a teaching curriculum, since she has sufficient time on her hands to run a 200 member Secret Cooks Club, which organises "dinners (based) on novel technology, philosophy and food science concepts." Such as serving sushi on a naked woman's body. Her partner in the dubious scientific undertaking is a 26 year old French entrepreneur she met at Hackerspace, an underground clubhouse for hackers, another wholesome pursuit for those so inclined. Neither has a drop of Japanese blood in their gastronomic veins.
Too bad those many local professors who were retired early at 55 actually believed that, as academics, they were only supposed to publish or perish. No one told them about the new economics of sleaze in Singapore.
