Integrity of true academicuian is very important. We must develop an academic culture in our society and all must respect the professors.

learn about academic culture from competitive university. the way they present their university, the way they walk, the way they label their university and building and other look like they are in better academic culture.

It is a great challenges in front after we jump too fast in ranking. Especially very huge gaps between the seniour and juniours, current economy situation and leadership quality. What ever it is we must have good strategy and brave enough to move forwards.

May be if you look scroll through my blog you will see my suggestion on using electric car for local patrolling or deliveries activities to keep urban areas clean and green. In Shanghai we can see police use electric car to patrol urban areas and more electric motorbike.

Food security not just talking and ceremonial. we need to look at more wider angles and approaches. Environmental approach and carrying capacity are among the approaches that we need to look closely.

We need foreigners to come here to Malaysia to tell us what to do and we trust them more especially when we talk on nature and conservation. We should start to develop our local scientists on nature and conservation. we must respect and develop locals because of this is our country.

Something that Malaysia can learn from Hong Kong for better planning in new city, industry and transportation. They are not the best but something we can learn about the bad and the worse.

I have been attending this conference since 21 years ago. this series of conference really developed many young generations and groups of researchers. This is another group from Malaysia to continue the generations of researchers in ecotoxicology and marine pollution. Thanks to the initiator and the leader.

World Ocean Day 8 June 2016 Theme: Healthy oceans, healthy planet

The ocean is the heart of our planet. Like your heart pumping blood to every part of your body, the ocean connects people across the Earth, no matter where we live. The ocean regulates the climate, feeds millions of people every year, produces oxygen, is the home to an incredible array of wildlife, provides us with important medicines, and so much more! In order to ensure the health and safety of our communities and future generations, it’s imperative that we take the responsibility to care for the ocean as it cares for us.
This year, the theme is Healthy oceans, healthy planet, and we’re making a special effort to stop plastic pollution.
Plastic pollution is a serious threat because it degrades very slowly, polluting waterways for a very long time. In addition, plastic pollution impacts the health of aquatic animals because animals including zooplankton mistake the microbeads for food. Scientists also fear health impacts for humans.
The United Nations will celebrate World Oceans Day 2016 and recognize the winners of the Annual World Oceans Day Oceanic Photo Competition at an event on 8 June 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters.

Why do we celebrate World Oceans Day?

  • To remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe.
  • To inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean.
  • To develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean.
  • To mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans. They are a major source of food and medicines and a critical part of the biosphere.
  • To celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.
