Conflict between conservationist, naturalist, educationist vs enforcement officers, business, policy makers, politician, money and mangrove forest

All these mangrove wood were suspected from Kelang Islands Mangrove Reserve Forest. How to stop people from destroy these mangrove trees. Policies, rules and regulation, public awareness and support, developers and politician are important to stop this uncivilise activities. Do they need professors to help them.

Amanat Menteri Pengajian Tinggi Sangat Mencabar! Adakah kita benar-benar boleh menjayakannya?

The autonomy was given with the aim that there would be no more excuses for the universities not to excel. And to excel, they must have autonomy and not be tied down by government rules and processes

Conflict World Class University, International Education Hub, Foreign Students and Staff & Facilities in the Developing Countries

World class university in developed countries took long years to develop. They developed their staff both academic and supporting and respect them. They developed academic expertise, facilities, etc. If we want to have world class university overnight, attract high quality students and same products quality, may be we need to employ professors from top universities, attachment or visiting programmes for our staff in top university or laboratory and collaboration in teaching or research between top university and our university. Sent dynamic professors to visit top universities and ask them to develop one here.

Continuous research, public awareness and hardwork, hornbills conservation in Sabak Bernam Selangor can be a reality

Academic Freedom: Thesis, Students, Research, Publications and the Professors

Some times we control the academic freedom among the academician. Students and Professors should be given the opportunity and free to express their opinion, ideas and interpretation. Some of the ideas and interpretation cannot be explained to the public. Among the professors only can look at the actions in case run away from the scopes. By doing this the development of ideas, proactive and creativity among the academician can be flourishing.

Analysing the impact of our work or contribution to the society or country.

As a professors, easy to measure.
1. teaching and supervising the students. The students will use their knowledge and expertise developed during their students time and serve the society or the country, or may be at the international level.
2. consultation to government or public agencies on the specific field to be used by the agencies in their management or developing their new projects.
3. extension work to the public. If the professors can identify one area as a model and develop the society and technology in changing their culture, life style and productivity of the locals, this can be an important impact of their research, contribution and knowledge. All those contribution are based on long term research and knowledge development. All developed country respect the professors by giving them better salary, research grants and recognised them. Some country still practicing "Hang Nadim" culture (look at Singapura Dilanggar Todak).

My first job was in Dermaga Air dalam Butterworth. Imagine how much heavy metals, TBT and other hazardous chemicals in the top sediments in this area?

More understanding needed on Omega 6 and Omega 3.

We have UPM, Mardi, Agriculture Department, FAMA and many more agencies. BUT our agricultural products such as fruits are still wasted. Why?

Why their products are selling on the road shoulders, caused danger to motorists and pedestrians. Local authority should help them providing space for locals to sell their products such as fruits, traditional cakes and other kampung products. May be we are not talking at the same tone or tune. We need more mind tuning and transformation to all levels og Malaysian, from the politician, government officers to the local public. Bring the experts a long to support.

Chinese New Year: Kong Hee Fat Choy

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. In China, it is known as "Spring Festival," the literal translation of the Chinese name 春節 (Pinyin: Chūn Jié. Chinese New Year's Eve, a day where Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner, is known as Chú Xī (除夕) or "Eve of the Passing Year." Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the "Lunar New Year".

Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions.

Within China, regional customs and traditions concerning the celebration of the Chinese new year vary widely. People will pour out their money to buy presents, decoration, material, food, and clothing. It is also the tradition that every family thoroughly cleans the house to sweep away any ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of "good fortune" or "happiness", "wealth", and "longevity". On the Eve of Chinese New Year, supper is a feast with families. Food will include such items as pigs, ducks, chicken and sweet delicacies. The family will end the night with firecrackers. Early the next morning, children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and receive money in red paper envelopes.

The most trusted person are doctors and professors. Why?

Jawapannya mungkin kerana mereka takut mati kalau tak makan ubat yang diberikan doctor atau takut gagal dalam peperiksaan di Universiti. ATAU mereka berterima kasih kepada doctor kerana penyakit yang dikesan sembuh apabila ubat diberikan diambil dan mendapat nasihat tepat Dari profesor.

If doctors and professors are trusted why we need to check their work. Let them handle their jobs and see the results.

Learn More About Antartica: What we can explore in term of energy, materials, food and life style.

Another great opportunities for Malaysian young scientists: Antartica

When Malaysia can have this kind of scientist?

If we want to develop fast we should learn how developed countries respect scientists. Look at Britain, Japan, USA, Iraq, Iran,..... BUT in some countries they trust singer and jokers more than professors and believe that they can make country rich and create high income society.

Which one is stronger, academic institution or business centre? Why we need to take out top department in the university

May be the academician should be stronger and tell everybody to keep business a side. Or purposely we appoint academic leaders to sell the programme, graduates, staff and the university. This make the academic staff keep working hard and the bosses selling ideas, pprogrammes and properties. We should develop ourself make people recognised and value ourself. Then people will pay our services. Then we can get quality students, charging higher fees, and getting high salary.

Beauty, Celebrity, Economy, Superpower, politic, bully, threat, war, nature, pollution, safety and basic sciences

How scientists can help the world. Convince the politician, slow down the greedy businessman or economic power, bringing all to support scientists not just supporting the models and artists. Scientists must work hard to educate public on sciences....basic sciences.
