Thirty years a go I proposed two courses Wildlife Ecology and Ecotoxicology in UPM. I said this is future course for developed country. Some people laughed at me. in fact today still some primitive people laughed at me. At international level they understand and support my thinking. In science we should be positive and support ideas.

All brainy professors have to work hard looking for their own money for their own salary and research. BUT the systems must change. Those who get money will get some percentage from the funds. If the lowest level of clerk in bursar office controlling money may be they are not interested especially those are close to retirement.

Checking the list of the worst man-made environmental disasters ever, Indonesia’s fires are probably the biggest global environmental disaster of the 21st centuryWhy has the Indonesian government not taken serious steps to stop and control the fire and haze problem? Are the few helicopters and water bombers, an insufficient supply of the right type of face masks, and some canals dug in the peat to guide water to fires really the best the government can do? We need help if Indonesia do not need help! at lease to reduce haze in Malaysia..

Onion or garlic farm near Gwangju South Korea use a lot of pig waste as one way of soil fertility enrichment. BUT the secondary effect is contamination of chemicals such as antibiotic and others including heavy metals. Therefore assessment of chemical residues in plants is important and good agriculture practice need to be establish. Scientists are needed to help in improving the product quality and advise good practice in agriculture.

We need to change our thinking tradition and styles. If we want to have green campus, we must loo at our trees, organisation of green and design. We need knowledge, skills and creativity. If we want pedestrian, bicycle lane and motor vehicle lanes we need to design properly and effectively. Wht we cannot learn from others? probably many of our leaders already visited to many countries and campuses. BUT why we are still inheriting old thinking and design..

When I was in Japan fifteen years a go. The Japanese professor said to his students"if we want to be better than the American and the European, we must work hard and do not sleep. To day in Korea the professor said to his students work hard on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Friday and Friday. .... Meaning no weekend and working hard everyday. I have to follow them too. Why they are working hard? May be they have hard time in life and very high competition!

Another series of MNS-TM Earth Camp for this year 2015. The camp is to give exposure to the students and teachers about nature and bring back the experience to their own schools. We have 500 KPA schools in Malaysia. If 1000 students per school x 500 schools, we can get half million of students a year receiving our message about nature education flora and fauna, ecosystem and all components of water, air, earth, energy and human.

who are listening to scientists crying for help? Data and ideas from scientists just to help the world. BUT political power and greedy business that will destroy the world and make few people happy are more heard by majority.

When we can create academic culture in our local universities? How professors can change the current culture. We are spoiled by school culture and foreign students. What ever it is we must respect and value our professors and the professors must mantain the quality.
