Do we have a regular monitoring systems on hazardous chemicals in surface water and tap water? Hazardous chemicals including heavy metals need to be monitored and more local health inspectors and health officers need to be trained in ecotoxicology.

Some time we forgotten new technology. We are still using old survey systems to mark border of forest like Taman Negara. Why not using remote sensing services?

May be we need to consult Japanese or other European countries how to educate public on rubbish management and attitude

A resident from the Desaria PJS5 flat, close to this area in Jalan , said the waste dumping had stopped but hope authorities will be vigilant or it could begin again. SAMUEL ONG / THE STAR, 29TH APRIL 2014.

Almost all scientists study biodiversity and ecology in Danum Valley are foreigners from England, Japan, America, Germany,.... Why not many from Malaysia?


Look at fishes in Sabah's fish market. Fresh and crystal shiny. How far we can maintain this. Greedy fisherman, habitat disturbance, pollution etc. will change all.

New emerging diseases or well understood virus infection, all need to be studied continuously. Public need to be educated before too late. Especially places that many people in the world gathering.


Turtle harvesting in Sabah and Philippines still active. Education and enforcement is very urgent in the areas.

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943 ans Tesla Coil

Tesla coil is an electrical resonant transformer circuit invented by Nikola Tesla around 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity.
Tesla coils can produce higher voltages than electrostatic machines, which are another source of artificial high-voltage discharges. Tesla experimented with a number of different configurations consisting of two, or sometimes three, coupled resonant electric circuits.
Tesla used these coils to conduct innovative experiments in electrical lightingphosphorescenceX-ray generationhigh frequency alternating current phenomena, electrotherapy, and the transmission of electrical energy without wires. Tesla coil circuits were used commercially in spark  gap radio transmitters for wireless telegraphy until the 1920s, and in medical equipment such aselectrotherapy and violet ray devices. Today their main use is for entertainment and educational displays, although small coils are used as leak detectors for high vacuum systems.
Nikola Tesla (Serbian CyrillicНикола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineermechanical engineerphysicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.

Biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are worse than gasoline for global warming in the short term, a study shows, challenging the Obama administration's conclusions that they are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help combat climate change. CAN ALGAE HELP?

TRAFFIC, a global wildlife trade monitoring network, says there are between 47,000 and 93,000 elephants in Zimbabwe. The gap is due to the fact that full-fledged surveys of the animals have not been carried out since 2007. China, the world's largest market for ivory, is compounding the threat, the report said. Chinese companies have won lucrative contracts in Zimbabwe for mining and construction projects near remote elephant habitats, bringing waves of workers and new roads that can be exploited by East Asian crime organizations.North of Zimbabwe, in central Africa, an estimated 23,000 elephants, or roughly 60 each day, were killed last year. A pound of elephant tusk sells for about $1,500 on the black market. That's more than double the price just five years ago. CAN WE FIGHT AGAINST POACHERS AND ILLEGAL TRADING OF ELEPHANTS TRUNK?

Water shortage is not just in Malaysia BUT Malaysia should not have a problem if proactive actions were take. How ask the experts-The Ecologist! not the politician and the business people.

Knowledge, skills and right decision are needed in aeropalane industries. It involves high values not just money but brain.

No Nobel Prize in ECOLOGY? We need to put our right for High Quality Food and Save Environment to Live! Value ECOLOGY & ECOLOGIST!

Certainly this concerns all people over the world. We are witnessing grave economic problems caused by Climate Change and Global Warming as a result of noxious gas emissions. There emerge challenges linked with the use and shortage of water resources on earth, the conservation of biodiversity, the purity of air, soil and nature. There are many problems caused by noise and the treatment of industrial and household waste and the dumping of electronic waste products. We can find industrial waste even in space. 
We have seen unheard-of calamities like tidal waves, floods and hurricanes that took the life of hundreds of thousands of human beings. The world is now aware that ecology, the protection of environment and the fate of the earth are the most important mission of humanity in the 21st century. This is a mission to protect the humans’ most important right: the right to live! 

What is our plan to get one Nobel Prize winner from Malaysia? learn for Nobel Prize winner not just visiting them or talking about them. Do it!

"one might wonder whether the true history of mankind is not to be found in these stories, oral or written, and whether we might not at least dimly catch the meaning of that history. And it matters little whether the story is set in the present or in the past": Ivo Andric

Singidunum University (Serbian: Универзитет Сингидунум / Univerzitet Singidunum) is a private university in Belgrade, Serbia. The first of the faculties, the integral part of the university, was founded in 1999, while the university itself was established in 2005 following the decision issued by the Council for University Education Development of the Republic of Serbia. Singidunum University offers Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree programmes in the fields of social sciences, formal sciences and applied sciences.

About time if we want to develop our education systems effectively, we must practice democracy. Not giving everybody opportunity but offer them the opportunities with criteria and routes. We need to have extreme groups for excellence not to force for pseudoexcellence


I cannot sleep last night until morning. She keep disturbing me. I know her but she never understand me. I told her I am tired and I want to sleep. Tomorrow I have important thing to do.

Generous mentor: Over his 60-year career in the study of animals, 87-year-old Dr Lim Boo Liat has trained hundreds of young zoologists. We always meet in many activities by ASM, MNS and MZS. I just contacted Tan Cheng Li of the Star to write about few scientists and activists for Earth Day celebration 22 April 2014. She told me that will come out soon about Dr Lim Boo Liat.

Eggs are beautiful. They are a picture perfect example of what nature is able to accomplish. They help make us more beautiful by helping both the inside of our body, like our hearts, as well as the outside of our body, like our hair.

Study: drinking milk could prevent arthritis in women. In a recent study, milk proved to be more effective than yogurt or cheese at slowing the progression of knee arthritis.

One way to promote young scientists. BUT we must have a sequence not just a ceremonial. From school to the university, from learning and teaching to research and innovation, from managing science to leading in science. all we definitely need real leaders to lead i science motivation programme. We cannot bias in this and really looking at true talent.

Science help in many ways: Scientists successfully create vaginas in lab to help women born without.
Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre's Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina have managed to grow vaginas in the lab to help women born without them. In this photo, cells from the patient's body are cultured on a matrix and wrapped around a tube to mimic the vaginal opening. After the culturing process is done, the resulting 'tube' of living cells is implanted into the patient's body. – Reuters
