How far we can certainly say that banana leaves have better antibacterial properties against other common bacteria such as P. aeruginosa, E. aerogenes, P. mirabilis, S. flexneri,, Citrobacter, E. faecalis and S. aureus, the leaves are also quite effective against fungi such as Aspergillus terreus and Penicillium solitum and free from BPA (or bisphenol A – or even more accurately, 4,4’-dihydroxy-2,2-diphenylpropane).

In this age, the English language is the international language, lingua franca, and much of the knowledge comes to us in the English language, If we only master Bahasa Melayu we cannot actively move forward in the world, especially in the economic world, Mastering the English language is crucial to progress, especially in the fields of science and mathematics
Dr Mahathir added that there are new discoveries every day in science and technology by researchers, and in order not to fall behind it is necessary to have a good command of the English language.

in the tropics, coral reefs face a host of interconnected problems (bleaching, corrosion, disease, spreading seaweed, invasive species) that are all caused by rising CO2 levels. the spread of marine life that cause problems, such as toxic jellyfish blooms and rotting algal mats and Based on a synthesis of evidence available to date, there was predicted the problems associated with harmful marine life will get worse in response to rising CO2.
Small creatures can be a good indicators for climate changes. We need to study these creatures and the study must be for a long term and global, Networking and collaboration among scientists in the world is important.

You can have ideas but if you dont have time, expertise, money and power then you are just dreaming. Teaching film through film is very effective and practical. Classroom activities will enhance the understanding of science. BUT in Malaysia probably still far because the leaders and the administrators cannot do it and do not see how we can do it.

In the era of global rankings, higher education is becoming an increasingly competitive and global endeavour which requires senior academic and administrative managers, and evaluation and planning teams, who are not only intelligent, but also highly skilled in formulating appropriate strategic directions, and managing these strategies through to implementation. Success is only possible when university and college managers possess the required personal resources and skills to develop and sustain significant advantage in our highly competitive and increasingly complex higher education markets. Despite these requirements, most senior managers in higher education have found themselves in their roles as a result of their research and teaching excellence rather than their abilities as managers of large organisations.There are currently very few, if any, short strategic leadership and management workshops where existing and new leaders in higher education can work alongside some of their most successful colleagues from around the world, and learn some of the most proven approaches to effective strategic and organisational management. Consequently, this workshop is designed to bridge the skills gap for senior managers and leaders in the field of higher education, and provide a range of tools and skills which will equip them to excel in their challenging roles as academic and administrative leaders.
The Sarawak Government has announced the significant discovery of a new cave near Mulu, which is at least six million years old and possibly within the top 15 largest in the world. The discovery was made by world famous British explorer Andy Eavis on Oct 15. It took Eavis a total of 24 expeditions to Mulu since his first attempt all the way back in 1977 to find this new cave, according to the Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC).
We need to organise good scientific expedition to uncover more natural history of this cave.
