April 16, 2009 15:52 PM

KUCHING, April 16 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will witness the launch of RazakSAT, Malaysia's second remote sensing satellite into orbit on April 21.

Najib would observe the launch of RazakSAT at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC), said Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Fadillah Yusof.

RazakSAT was scheduled to be launched at Omelek island, part of Kwajalein Atoll on April 21 at 6am Malaysia time. Kwajalein is grouped under the Marshall Islands.

Fadillah said the RM150mil satellite, the first to orbit the Equator would be sent into orbit on a Falcon 1 rocket owned by California-based United States' Space Exploration Technology (SpaceX).

"RazakSAT, the engineering work of local scientists will provide useful images for land development, monitoring of floods, jungle and the environment," he said when opening the "Introduction to Astronomy and Aerospace Science seminar at Pusat Maklumat Islam here today.

With RazakSAT, agencies under the ministry like the National Aerospace Agency (ANGKASA), Remote Sensing Malaysia (MACRES), National Oceanography Department and the Meteorological Department could receive images four to seven times in 24 hours.

Fadillah said the RazakSAT technology that could last three years was developed following the successful launch of TiungSAT-1, the country's first remote sensing satellite.

TiungSAT-1 was launched at Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan in 2000.

Malaysia embarks on world's first intelligent plantations
AvantiKumar, The Industry Standard02.17.2009
http://www.thestandard.com/news/2009...nt-plantations

Quote:
The world’s first intelligent plantations: Here and soon
Developments are being led by Felda Agricultural Services and MIMOS in six critical areas
Malaysian applied research agency MIMOS and Felda Agricultural Services (FAS) have inked a deal to develop the world's first intelligent plantations."

The collaboration would be in six areas, said representatives from both organisations. MIMOS chairman, Dato' Suriah Abdul Rahman, said new applications for FAS would be developed, based on its Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) sensor technology, semantic technology, wireless technology and grid computing technology platforms.

"These tools will be used to enhance FAS' R&D and advisory services to the Felda Group which oversees some 740,000 hectares of oil palm plantations," said Rahman. "One of the key thrusts of this collaborative venture is to develop an intelligent platform based on frontier ICT technologies for remote and accurate monitoring of soil conditions and crop parameters in Felda estates."

"The other is to develop an information system based on MIMOS semantic technology, harnessing FAS' 40-year knowledge of in-field variability for strategic usage to enhance the productivity of Felda's oil palm plantations," she said.

The collaboration is expected to herald a new era of precision agriculture marrying ICT with agriculture whereby digital databases will guide estate management and lead to higher profitability.

Felda Agricultural Services (FAS) is a direct subsidiary of Felda Holdings, providing R&D services to the Felda Group.

First to use MEMS-based technology

Rahman said that MIMOS' Sensor Technology platform involved using MEMS technology integrated with electronic and wireless modules whereby MEMS sensors collect in-field data and relay the information automatically to crop databases. "Apart from eliminating manual assessment through soil sampling, this automated system would be able to capture critical data to aid decision making in the plantations."

"Worldwide including in Malaysia, this is the first move to use MEMS-based technology towards increasing palm oil productivity," she added. "It is currently used mainly in manufacturing and security sectors."

However, he said, FAS and MIMOS would use frontier tools and technologies to widen the scope of analytical data usage to make explicit FAS' tacit knowledge for more strategic purposes.

Felda chairman Tan Sri Dr Mohd Yusof Noor said that the collaboration is a significant step forward for the industry because sophisticated technology will be brought to bear to re-engineer some of the existing practices in oil palm plantations.

"The collaboration also involved the transformation of data collected through the Intelligent Plantation System to be transposed into the data collected by FAS over the last 40 years to enhance FAS' ability to forecast yields, emerge site specific information for better estate management and analyse data for decision making," said Dr Noor.

"Felda aims to be a respected and successful global enterprise in palm oil. In an environment where rising plantation costs, volatile commodity prices and labour issues impact profitability, technology becomes an important enabler towards improvements in yield and quality,' he said

New era of intelligent plantations

"This collaboration will eventually usher in an era of intelligent plantations. I foresee the establishment of a new, 'Modern Felda', where the convergence of knowledge technology and ICT with agriculture will produce 'digital planters' in Felda," said Dr Noor.

MIMOS' Rahman said the collaboration with FAS is a further demonstration of the efficacy of MIMOS' technology platforms in line with the National Innovation Model to drive the country from a factor-driven economy to a knowledge-based one.

A world first in oil palm technology
Wednesday May 13, 2009



Thank you, Sir: Najib receiving a memento from Musa Hitam after the
announcement of the scientific breakhthrough by Sime Darby on the
discovery in oil palm genome at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre
yesterday. Also present is Sime Darby Platantation Sdn Bhd managing
director Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid (centre).


KUALA LUMPUR: Oil palm yields can be increased through a paradigm shift in biotechnology breakthroughs, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said discoveries through biotechnology techniques to develop high-value commodity products could also help to reduce the downside of volatile commodity prices.

He said oil palm was an important asset to Malaysia, in which export earnings of its products rose to a record RM65.2bil last year from RM45.17bil in 2007.

The palm oil industry also provided employment to 500,000 people and livelihood to an estimated one million people, including 270,000 smallholders, he said.

“It is therefore critical that the industry consistently adopts innovative techniques and sustainable practices, through the availability of new knowledge and technology, to ensure that oil palm cultivation remains in harmony with the environment,” he said at an event here yesterday to announce the world’s first discovery of oil palm genome by Sime Darby Bhd.

The company has successfully deciphered the genetics of the oil palm, through the method of sequencing, assembling and annotating the oil palm genome, which would bring multiple benefits to the industry.

Najib said Sime Darby’s discovery was an industry milestone that could raise higher yields to the extent that food supply would not be an issue again.

“What I hope this means is that we can expect more price stability as we will be able to control the palm oil supply to fulfil all sorts of new demand,” he added.

Later at a press conference, Najib said the new type of oil palm tree will reduce the use of labour per hectare to harvest the plant.

“We can double the existing rate in yield and productivity by 100%,” he said, adding that Felda may also discuss with Sime Darby to use the discovery to help increase the settlers’ income.

Sime Darby chairman Tun Musa Hitam said research into the oil palm genome began in 2003 and that the new plant had the potential to accelerate the production of new “designer oils,” was more disease resistant and more tolerant to drought and salinity.

“The revenue from the new discovery will have a positive financial impact not only to Sime Darby but also to the industry in the long term,” he added.

SKALI tawar peluang kerjaya bidang IT
ARKIB : 21/05/2009
Oleh NAZRUL AZIM SHARUDDIN



GRADUAN lepasan pusat pengajian tinggi (IPT) perlu mengambil
peluang kerja di bidang ICT yang ditawarkan oleh SKALI.


SEAKAN menjadi trend, setiap kali berlakunya kegawatan ekonomi, banyak syarikat perniagaan mengambil keputusan untuk memberhentikan pekerja mereka.

Namun, hakikat berkenaan tidak boleh diketepikan kerana tindakan itu diambil bertujuan untuk mengurangkan kos perbelanjaan yang perlu ditanggung oleh sesebuah syarikat bagi memastikan perniagaan mereka terus bertahan.

Secara puratanya, hampir 30,000 orang hilang pekerjaan setiap tahun akibat diberhentikan dan keadaan tersebut tentunya akan memberi impak yang besar kepada individu terlibat.

Di negara kita, banyak pihak yang prihatin terhadap masalah itu telah menganjurkan pelbagai program khas sebagai usaha membantu mereka yang menganggur mendapatkan pekerjaan.

Sebagai contoh, sebuah syarikat teknologi maklumat (IT), Kumpulan SKALI telah mengambil inisiatif menyediakan peluang latihan dan pekerjaan kepada golongan penganggur serta para graduan.

Diasaskan pada tahun 1997, syarikat yang berstatus Koridor Raya Multimedia (MSC) itu mempunyai kepakaran dalam bidang infrastruktur teknologi maklumat (IT) dan penyelesaian e-perniagaan.

Di samping itu, mereka turut menawarkan perkhidmatan lain seperti operasi pusat data Internet, aplikasi web serta konsultasi penyelesaian bidang teknologi.

Perkhidmatan utama kendalian Kumpulan SKALI adalah Perkhidmatan Pengurusan Portal (MPS) yang merupakan projek pengendalian laman web kerajaan di bawah satu standard rangka kerja teknologi.

Projek MPS sebenarnya telah mendapat kontrak pelaksanaan selama enam tahun daripada kerajaan Malaysia dan telah pun memulakan fasa pertamanya pada Oktober 2007.

Pelaksanaan fasa pertama MPS menyaksikan SKALI membangun dan menyelenggara 152 laman web yang mana 50 daripadanya untuk kementerian dan 102 lagi bagi pihak berkuasa tempatan (PBT) di Semenanjung Malaysia dan juga Labuan.

Menurut Pengarah Eksekutifnya, Saiful Khairi Zainuddin, MPS sebenarnya merupakan projek pembangunan dan penyelenggaraan laman web kerajaan negeri serta kerajaan persekutuan secara kolektif bagi penyampaian maklumat lebih mudah kepada orang awam.

''Projek ini secara tidak langsung dapat membantu memajukan aplikasi digital yang ditawarkan oleh perkhidmatan e-kerajaan.

''Menerusi pengkhususan seperti ini, ia akan memberi peluang kepada pihak pentadbiran untuk memberi tumpuan kepada isu yang lebih kritikal berbanding pengurusan laman web,'' katanya ketika ditemui di ibu pejabatnya di Sentul, Kuala Lumpur, baru-baru ini.

Beliau memberitahu, konsep MPS itu turut mendapat sambutan dari negara-negara seperti Brunei, Arab Saudi, Kuwait dan Jordan untuk melaksanakan program yang sama.

Apa yang menarik mengenai MPS, ia memberi fokus kepada pembangunan dalam tiga teras utama iaitu berkaitan kluster IT, kemudahan pengendalian dan penyelesaian.

Selain itu, MPS turut prihatin terhadap golongan kurang upaya menerusi penyediaan pilihan paparan khas bagi membolehkan individu yang mengidap kecacatan seperti rabun jauh atau rabun dekat boleh melayari laman web terlibat.

Bagi memastikan laman web yang dikendalikan itu diselenggara dengan baik, pihak Kumpulan SKALI telah memperkenalkan program latihan bagi mewujudkan lebih ramai usahawan tekno serta tenaga pekerja mahir dalam bidang IT.

Program yang diberi nama Perintis dan Pembaharuan Pengetahuan Ekonomi SKALI (SPIKE) itu telah dilancarkan pada tahun 2007 dengan matlamat menawarkan latihan komprehensif dan praktikal dalam bidang teknologi maklumat dan komunikasi (ICT).

Sementara itu, Pengarah Pembanguan Organisasi SKALI untuk program MPS, Rosli Mohd. Said berkata, MPS memberi fokus kepada pembangunan model insan di samping mengetengahkan modul berkaitan sosial dan ekonomi.

''Antara golongan yang disasarkan untuk menyertai program ini adalah pelajar universiti, graduan menganggur, golongan profesional dan juga individu yang berminat untuk menjadi usahawan ICT.

''Selama tiga bulan ia dijalankan, para peserta akan didedahkan dengan pelbagai kemahiran seperti multimedia dan perniagaan, pengaturcaraan dan rangkaian IT,'' katanya.

Di samping itu, mereka turut diberi latihan berkaitan kemahiran seperti pengurusan projek, keusahawanan, kepimpinan, penyelesaian pembangunan serta kawalan kualiti

Apa yang menarik, para peserta akan menerima bayaran elaun sebanyak RM500 sebulan selain sijil tamat pengajian serta jaminan pekerjaan di 16 syarikat ICT tempatan dan 152 rangkaian pelanggan yang bekerjasama dengan SKALI.

Sehingga kini, program SPIKE yang mempunyai 12 orang tenaga pelajar telah melatih seramai lebih 420 peserta di tiga pusat latihannya di Kuala Lumpur, Terengganu dan juga Perak.

Menarik mengenai SPIKE, ia telah membuka sebanyak lebih kurang 600 peluang pekerjaan kepada masyarakat pada pelaksanaan MPS fasa pertama.

Untuk fasa keduanya tahun ini, Kumpulan SKALI merancang untuk mengambil 1,000 lagi kakitangan untuk berkhidmat di industri ICT dengan memberi fokus kepada graduan yang menganggur.

Menurut beberapa orang pelatih yang ditemui, peluang menyertai SPIKE seharusnya tidak dilepaskan kerana ia bakal memberi pengalaman yang cukup berharga.

Menurut Rohaya Md Jani, 28, selain kemahiran secara teknikal, program tersebut turut memberi kepercayaan kepada pelatih menjalankan tugas sebagai seorang usahawan ICT sebenar bermula dari peringkat awal sehingga akhir.

''Kami diberi peluang untuk bertemu sendiri dengan klien untuk berbincang tentang keperluan dan rekaan laman web yang mereka inginkan.

''Sepanjang program berjalan, kami juga di ajar untuk menjalankan sesuatu tugasan secara berkumpulan sebelum dibentangkan kepada tenaga pengajar,'' jelasnya.

Sementara itu, seorang lagi pelatih, Engku Ahmad Nazri Engku Ariff, 30, memberitahu, seseorang pelatih yang telah berjaya juga akan terus di pantau dan menerima bimbingan lanjutan.

''Walaupun telah berjaya diterima bekerja di industri ICT, pihak SKALI masih lagi menawarkan bantuan dari semasa ke semasa agar pelatih terus menunjukkan prestasi cemerlang.

Mereka yang berminat untuk menyertai program berkenaan boleh melayari laman web www.spike.com.my untuk mengisi borang sebelum menghadiri sesi temuduga.

Secara keseluruhannya, penawaran program sedemikian sangatlah dialu-alukan dalam usaha membantu golongan penganggur menceburi bidang ICT bagi jaminan masa depan mereka.

Scomi closer to US$3b Bahrain monorail job
By Marina EmmanuelPublished: 2009/05/28



Scomi Engineering is about to start identifying the exact route of the monorail and stations as well as how the project will be financed.

Scomi Engineering Bhd (7366), the energy and logistics engineering subsidiary of Scomi Group Bhd, is about to embark on the second phase of a feasibility study for a US$3 billion (RM10.5 billion) monorail system in Bahrain.

The Middle Eastern state's Works Minister Fahmi Al Jowder was reported as saying that Scomi Engineering had embarked on preliminary engineering studies on available lines for its first monorail network.

Bahrain is in the midst of a nationwide overhaul of its road network, which is expected to help the country cope with a growing population and new infrastructure development.

"Scomi Engineering will conduct the second phase of the study after already completing the first phase," Jowder was quoted as saying in the Construction Week Online, a news portal for Middle Eastern construction professionals.
"Phase One, which looked at the project's feasibility, was approved by the Cabinet in September 2008," he added.

Jowder said the second study will identify the exact route of the monorail and stations as well as how the project will be financed.

Construction, to be completed in three phases by 2030, is expected to stretch 83km and include six rail links.

The first phase is reported to consist of a 23km section and 18 stations.

It includes the Green Line, a light rail transit (LRT) from Juffair through Manama to Seef, and the Red Line, a tramway from the Bahrain International Airport through the diplomatic area to Seef.

Scomi Group senior vice-president Kanesan Velupillai said the group was working actively on the project and that its officials had just returned from a round of fruitful meetings with the Bahrain authorities.

"We expect to embark on the second phase of the study in the third quarter of this year and to complete it in four months," he told Business Times yesterday.

In pointing out that urban transportation had become a critical priority in the Middle East, Kanesan said large investments were being committed towards infrastructure development.

"There appears to be no slowdown, especially with urban transportation and trains, which have become a critical priority.

"We have already stationed a person in the Middle East, while an advance team is studying cities in Saudi Arabia, Oman and Abu Dhabi," he added.[/QUOTE]

My Jawi Games To Bring Back The Jawi Script
June 10, 2009 12:30 PM
By Suriani Razali

Technology Exhibition (ITEX 2009) Gold Medal Award (right) which he
received for his computer game invention called 'My Jawi Games' (left). By
combining elements of the Jawi script with Malay folklore, 'My Jawi Games'
facilitate the learning of the Jawi script for children. Pic: Mudanoran
Mohamad


BANGI, June 10 (Bernama) -- Historical records point that the Jawi script has been in existence in the Malay Archipelago since the 14th century with its origins being closely linked with the propagation of Islam from West Asia.

It was once the dominant script for writing in Malay. For the Islamic society, Jawi is the medium to learn Islam. Yet, Jawi lost its relevance with the advent of romanised Malay script in the early part of the 19th century.

At present Jawi is of limited use and there are genuine fears that it may be forgotten for good. That is why there are efforts to revive the Jawi script.

The simplicity and beauty of the Jawi script can easily win over anyone, regardless Muslims or non-Muslims. Thus, any move to reintroduce the Jawi script is definitely worth the effort.

Recently the Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS) took an unconventional approach to boost Jawi - through a computer game 'My Jawi Games'.

The game invented by a lecturer at the Information Technology and Science Faculty at KUIS, Noor Azli Mohamed Masrop, 37, is categorized as a mobile learning application.

During the 20th International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX 2009) at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 15 to 17 May, My Jawi Games won the Gold Medal Award.

The event was participated by higher education institutions, organisations, companies and individuals from within and without the country.

FOLKLORE

My Jawi Games is based on a folklore from Pahang known as 'Azimat Awang Miskin' with its multimedia animation platform created using Adobe Flash.

The Azimat Awang Miskin is a story of an orphan, Awang, who travels to seek knowledge. During his travels, Awang comes face to face with many obstacles.

Through seven modules, the player takes up the challenge through various activities like picking and counting fruits, climbing hills, crossing a river full of crocodiles, cook and catch fish.

"Thank god, I was able to complete the game within a year," said Noor Azli, who has been with KUIS for the last 13 years.

"I'm very thankful to KUIS for providing the cooperation and assistance, including full paid leave," he said.

This project was well received by students and teachers in several schools around Bangi, who provided the feedback on the game and how it can be used in the learning process.

The students who were previously not fluent in Jawi after playing the game a few times could read the script fluently.

THE OBJECTIVE AND TARGET

By combining learning elements in Jawi script with folklore, the My Jawi Games help to inculcate the letters in the minds beginning with children.

The approach is also in line with the Information, Communication and Culture Ministry's call that not only wanted to preserve the Jawi script and folklore but also apply them in the daily activities.

My Jawi Games also provides exposure to the players, who are basically children, through an exciting medium, to the information technology and multimedia.

The idea to create this game started when the father of five heard cases of students playing truant and wasting their time at video game arcades.

Noor Azli then looked for ways to help overcome this problem.

It is only natural that children love exciting games, therefore I thought of creating a game in Jawi that can motivate and teach good values to them, said Noor Azli.

According to Noor Azli, this project is also part of his research for his doctorate degree at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia that he expects to complete next year.

FUTURE PLANS

The only hope that Noor Azli harbours is that My Jawi Games will be well received by the general public.

The Selangor born academician noted that the game is yet to be patented as it is still at the testing stages.

Noor Azli, who won the first prize in the logo competition at the Asean Skills Competition, wants to upgrade and diversify his creation so that it caters for all age levels and not for beginners only.

For example, Jawi can be used in action filled computer games that enthralls the teenagers.

Looking ahead, Noor Azli also envisions the use of Jawi in learning mathematics and science like how it is done in English now.

On the same note, he added that if the use of Jawi can be upgraded as a component of the Islamic Studies and evaluated in the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR), there is a possibility that the students would take up Jawi seriously.

According to him, a host of research efforts involving the Jawi script is being done at several higher education institutions; among others the invention of the Jawi script processor, the Romanised-Jawi Script converter, Jawi scanner, Romanised to Jawi web site converter and Jawi learning software.

KUIS' Rector Datuk Adanan Isman concurred on the importance of developing the My Jawi Games.

My Jawi Games is a wonderful innovation. Previously, we read the Jawi script from holy books, news papers and periodicals, but now all these are no longer well received," he told Bernama.

"It is hoped that this new innovation will provide a new lease of life for the Jawi script. KUIS' welcomes such efforts," he said.

Mumbai Ground Breaking




February 9, 2009, saw the much anticipated ground breaking on the Mumbai Monorail project. The guest of honor was the Chief Minister of the Government of Maharashtra Mr. Ashok Chavan while Malaysia was represented by Malaysian Ambassador to India His Excellency Dato’ Tan Seng Sung.

With the bit firmly between our teeth, Scomi kept the momentum going with the official opening of the Scomi Engineering’s Project Office in Mumbai, India by His Excellency Dato’ Tan Seng Sung.

Besides Mr. Shah Hakim Zain, Scomi Group CEO, Kanesan Veluppillai, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Suhaimi Yaacob, Project Director of the Mumbai Monorail Project and the entire Mumbai Project team were there on both days to show their support. Also present at both the Ground Breaking Ceremony and the Official Opening of the Mumbai Project Office was Malaysian General Consul to Mumbai Mr. Wan Zaidi Wan Abdullah.

The establishment of the Scomi Engineering Project Office in Mumbai indicates Scomi’s commitment to the Mumbai Monorail project as well as Scomi’s interest in developing other opportunities in India.

Work on the project has started and piling which took place on 25 February is about 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

With the RM785 million Mumbai Monorail project secured, Scomi has set its sights on concluding contract award negotiations with Bangalore, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Patna and Pune. Scomi Engineering anticipates successful closure of two further projects before year’s end.

The awarding of the massive Mumbai Monorail project has the desirable knock-on-effect of placing Scomi on the world map and firmly on the radar of other countries looking for transportation expertise. In recent developments, parties from Syria, Bangladesh, Brazil and Nigeria have initiated contact with Scomi Engineering.

Another project scheduled for completion in 3rd quarter 2009 is the Kelana Jaya Line Rail Expansion Project. Kelana Jaya is a suburb of Petaling Jaya city, in the state of Selangor. The project is worth RM171 million for Bogie assembly and upgrading of the Electrical & Mechanical (“E&M”) system.

Making Papers From Banana Stem
June 24, 2009 10:49 AM
By Balkish Awang

PENANG, June 24 (Bernama) -- The call to help preserve the environment prompted a local entrepreneur Sulaiman Ramli, 42, to try his hand in manufacturing products using natural material like plant fibers.

Today, his company Pisang Kraf makes decorations for lighting fixtures, greeting cards and gift boxes using papers made from banana fiber and the products have been well received up to Australia.

During a recent media visit to Pisang Kraf organised by Kraftangan Malaysia, Sulaiman told the visitors that the idea of making papers using banana fibers was first mooted by Pulau Betong state assemblyman Mohd Farid Saad.

"Mohd Farid who was in Chiang Mai to learn from the `One Village One Industry' programme, found a village producing papers from banana tree fibers.

"Upon his return, Mohd Farid proposed the idea to me," said Sulaiman who started the company in 2006 with a partner.

FARID'S ASSISTANCE

"As I was keen to start my own business, and was looking for a product that is not available in the market yet, something different, with handicraft elements, I was willing to give it a try," he said.

For a start Mohd Farid provided a capital of RM23,000 and Sulaiman himself chipped in another RM5,000.

"After discussing with Mohd Farid I went to Universiti Sains Malaysia's (USM) Art Centre to see for myself how papers are produced using banana fibers, and ever since I made up my mind to take up the venture and learn more of the process from USM," he said.

Due to the interest shown by Sulaiman, USM invested RM1 million to help him procure the state of the art equipment and also provided the know how through two of its experts.

At present three workers are helping him out.

PAPER MADE FROM BANANA FIBER

Even from the outset, Sulaiman has been optimistic that his products are special and there is a big market potential for them.

"I'm the first here to produce papers from banana stem fiber and to start the venture more than 40 hectares of land have been planted with banana trees," he said.

Sulaiman in explaining the paper making process said the banana stems had to be immersed in water for two months before its fiber can be harvested.

"It is best to use the 'pisang rawak' stem as its fibers are finer compared with other banana varieties.

"After immersing in the water for two months the stems turn dark but the fibers start to come off from the stem and are light in color," he added.

Subsequently the fibers are boiled for an hour before being pressed into shape using a hydraulic machine. The process also removes the water. The sheet is then pasted on the wall for three days for drying. To make color papers, the color can be added when the fibers are still wet.

In a day he could produce up to 60 sheets of A3 size papers using five of six stems with each sold at RM5.

BIG POTENTIAL

Using the banana fiber paper, Sulaiman has diversified its use by making lighting decorations, boxes, paper bags, greeting cards and picture frames.

Sulaiman said he is happy for the fact that Kraftangan Malaysia is helping him to succeed and has taken him all over Malaysia to introduce papers made from banana fiber.

"Each month I will follow the kraftangan group, and thank god now the product is receiving attention," he said.

LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES IN HOTELS AND BOUTIQUES

Sulaiman is now taking steps to penetrate the market with his products and is eyeing several leading hotels and bridal boutiques in Penang.

"At present, many of my products are being sought by Koperasi Keusahawanan Kampung in Balik Pulau, and I'm now marketing this products in the hotels around here and slowly moving towards boutiques," he said.

At the bridal boutiques, Sulaiman said he has been promoting lighting decorations that can be used to decorate the wedding dais.

"This is a novel idea and I hope that this decoration for the lightings can be used on the dais, and I will even consider marketing them at the overseas boutiques if there is a good demand," he said adding that he earns between RM3,000 and 5,000 per month.

PENETRATING THE FOREIGN MARKET

Sulaiman today is a reputed producer and supplier of banana fiber paper and his products have reached as far as Indonesia and Australia.

"In Malaysia the demand for the paper and products made by my company is centred around Alor Star, Kuala Lumpur and Sabah, and now I have received orders from Australia, mostly for lighting decorations.

"My hopes are that this product will be well received and I want to produce more papers, up to 800 pieces per month," said the father of six.

Sulaiman does not deny the fact that he is better off now compared with when he was a driver before.

BANGI, June 10 (Bernama) -- Historical records point that the Jawi script has been in existence in the Malay Archipelago since the 14th century with its origins being closely linked with the propagation of Islam from West Asia.

It was once the dominant script for writing in Malay. For the Islamic society, Jawi is the medium to learn Islam. Yet, Jawi lost its relevance with the advent of romanised Malay script in the early part of the 19th century.

At present Jawi is of limited use and there are genuine fears that it may be forgotten for good. That is why there are efforts to revive the Jawi script.

The simplicity and beauty of the Jawi script can easily win over anyone, regardless Muslims or non-Muslims. Thus, any move to reintroduce the Jawi script is definitely worth the effort.

Recently the Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS) took an unconventional approach to boost Jawi - through a computer game 'My Jawi Games'.

The game invented by a lecturer at the Information Technology and Science Faculty at KUIS, Noor Azli Mohamed Masrop, 37, is categorized as a mobile learning application.

During the 20th International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX 2009) at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 15 to 17 May, My Jawi Games won the Gold Medal Award.

The event was participated by higher education institutions, organisations, companies and individuals from within and without the country.

FOLKLORE

My Jawi Games is based on a folklore from Pahang known as 'Azimat Awang Miskin' with its multimedia animation platform created using Adobe Flash.

The Azimat Awang Miskin is a story of an orphan, Awang, who travels to seek knowledge. During his travels, Awang comes face to face with many obstacles.

Through seven modules, the player takes up the challenge through various activities like picking and counting fruits, climbing hills, crossing a river full of crocodiles, cook and catch fish.

"Thank god, I was able to complete the game within a year," said Noor Azli, who has been with KUIS for the last 13 years.

"I'm very thankful to KUIS for providing the cooperation and assistance, including full paid leave," he said.

This project was well received by students and teachers in several schools around Bangi, who provided the feedback on the game and how it can be used in the learning process.

The students who were previously not fluent in Jawi after playing the game a few times could read the script fluently.

THE OBJECTIVE AND TARGET

By combining learning elements in Jawi script with folklore, the My Jawi Games help to inculcate the letters in the minds beginning with children.

The approach is also in line with the Information, Communication and Culture Ministry's call that not only wanted to preserve the Jawi script and folklore but also apply them in the daily activities.

My Jawi Games also provides exposure to the players, who are basically children, through an exciting medium, to the information technology and multimedia.

The idea to create this game started when the father of five heard cases of students playing truant and wasting their time at video game arcades.

Noor Azli then looked for ways to help overcome this problem.

It is only natural that children love exciting games, therefore I thought of creating a game in Jawi that can motivate and teach good values to them, said Noor Azli.

According to Noor Azli, this project is also part of his research for his doctorate degree at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia that he expects to complete next year.

FUTURE PLANS

The only hope that Noor Azli harbours is that My Jawi Games will be well received by the general public.

The Selangor born academician noted that the game is yet to be patented as it is still at the testing stages.

Noor Azli, who won the first prize in the logo competition at the Asean Skills Competition, wants to upgrade and diversify his creation so that it caters for all age levels and not for beginners only.

For example, Jawi can be used in action filled computer games that enthralls the teenagers.

Looking ahead, Noor Azli also envisions the use of Jawi in learning mathematics and science like how it is done in English now.

On the same note, he added that if the use of Jawi can be upgraded as a component of the Islamic Studies and evaluated in the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR), there is a possibility that the students would take up Jawi seriously.

According to him, a host of research efforts involving the Jawi script is being done at several higher education institutions; among others the invention of the Jawi script processor, the Romanised-Jawi Script converter, Jawi scanner, Romanised to Jawi web site converter and Jawi learning software.

KUIS' Rector Datuk Adanan Isman concurred on the importance of developing the My Jawi Games.

My Jawi Games is a wonderful innovation. Previously, we read the Jawi script from holy books, news papers and periodicals, but now all these are no longer well received," he told Bernama.

"It is hoped that this new innovation will provide a new lease of life for the Jawi script. KUIS' welcomes such efforts," he said.

Scomi sasar monorel global
Oleh AINUL ASNIERA AHSAN
6 Julai 2009

KUALA LUMPUR 5 Julai - Scomi Engineering Bhd. (Scomi Engineering) mahu dikenali sebagai Enterpris Teknologi Global dalam tempoh dua tahun lagi, selaras dengan matlamatnya untuk menguasai industri pembinaan monorel di peringkat sejagat.

Presidennya, Hilmy Zaini berkata, syarikat itu kini sudah bersedia untuk 'melangkah lebih jauh' dan memberi persaingan kepada dua pencabarnya, Hitachi dari Jepun dan Bombardier dari Kanada dalam industri tersebut.

''Dari segi aset, memang kami (Scomi Engineering) agak jauh ke belakang tetapi kami memiliki kelebihan tersendiri dalam aspek fleksibiliti, mengendalikan dan menyiapkan projek dengan tepat serta menawarkan harga yang kompetitif. Aspek ini adalah kekuatan kami.

''Paling penting kami telah buktikannya,'' katanya kepada Utusan Malaysia.

Menurutnya, selaras dengan objektif itu, Scomi Engineering kini merupakan penyedia penyelesaian rel yang lengkap - bukan sahaja terlibat dalam pembuatan kemudahan monorel tetapi turut menghasilkan produk-produk rel.

Hilmy berkata, persediaan itu membuktikan bahawa Scomi Engineering serius untuk terlibat sebagai pemain utama dalam industri monorel di peringkat antarabangsa.

Beliau berkata, keseriusan itu adalah sejajar dengan jangkaan peningkatan permintaan bagi pengangkutan monorel di bandar-bandar yang telah matang di dunia ini.

''Potensi bisnes ini cukup besar. Di Asia sahaja banyak bandar besar sudah cukup matang dan sesak yang memerlukan satu sistem pengangkutan baru yang efisien dan menjimatkan ruang,'' katanya.

Berikutan itu, katanya, syarikat berkenaan sedang agresif memasarkan produknya terutama di kawasan bandar yang matang seperti di India dan Brazil.

Mengulas lanjut, Hilmy berkata, pengangkutan monorel adalah pilihan terbaik bagi menangani masalah pengangkutan di bandar-bandar matang.

Ia kerana, berbanding pengangkutan lain, monorel boleh disiapkan dalam tempoh yang cepat, struktur yang lebih kecil, senyap serta harga yang lebih kompetitif.

Scomi Engineering kini sedang membida empat projek besar di Brazil, lanjutan projek di Mumbai, Riyadh serta peluasan bagi KL Monorel.

Selain itu, syarikat itu sedang mengintai peluang di Timur Tengah dan turut melahirkan hasrat meneroka pasaran Amerika Selatan dan Eropah pada masa depan.

Projek luar negaranya kini yang menyumbang 72 peratus bagi pendapatan berbanding projek dalam negara dan jumlah itu dijangka meningkatkan kepada 85 peratus tahun ini.

Malah, segmen perniagaan pengangkutan dijangka memberi sumbangan setara dengan segmen tenaga yang sebelum ini menyumbangkan 61 peratus kepada syarikat.

Gigi pasang siap
Oleh Hafizah Iszahanid
Source: http://www.bharian.com.my/Current_Ne...084048/Article



Implan gigi rekaan anak tempatan lebih mesra pengguna kerana prosedur ringkas dan tanpa pembedahan

SEKALI pandang, ia tidak ubah seperti skru biasa yang mungkin dianggap ramai sebagai tiada keistimewaannya. Namun inilah 'penyelamat' kepada pelbagai masalah yang dialami ramai - gigi rosak sehingga terpaksa dicabut, sukar mengunyah makanan dan paling penting, boleh menjejaskan ketrampilan seseorang gara-gara kehilangan gigi.

Inilah keunikan gigi tiruan atau implan gigi Novella Ultima yang direka sekumpulan penyelidik diketuai Presiden Persatuan Pergigian Implan Malaysia, Dr Firdaus Hanapiah.

Lebih membanggakan, implan gigi menerusi penyelidikan selama setahun itu adalah hasil titik peluh anak tempatan yang sekali gus menjadikannya implan gigi pertama Malaysia yang dikomersialkan. Walaupun belum dilancarkan sepenuhnya dan hanya akan berada di pasaran dalam tempoh dua bulan dari sekarang, implan gigi itu sememangnya mencuri tumpuan ketika pembentangan kertas kerja mengenainya dibuat pada Seminar Persatuan Implan Pergigian Malaysia (MOIA) di Pulau Pinang, baru-baru ini.

Hakikatnya, tiada pengganti gigi yang terbaik apabila ia patah atau perlu dicabut tetapi alternatif terbaik yang ada adalah menerusi kaedah menanam implan gigi.

Di seluruh dunia misalnya, ada 250 pengeluar implan dengan setiap satunya mendakwa mereka adalah yang terbaik. Namun, pengiktirafan terbaik itu sebenarnya datang dalam bentuk pakej, reka bentuk implan yang mesra pengguna, kejayaan klinikal dan kejayaan pasaran.



Dr Firdaus menunjukkan implan Novella Ultima direka
dengan keutamaan menjana integrasi gusi dan tulang.


Malah sehingga kini, kebanyakan implan yang ada di pasaran tempatan, adalah buatan luar negara.

Jika diamati, implan gigi juga bukanlah baru dalam perubatan pergigian, sebaliknya ia sudah diperkenalkan sejak 1960-an. Lalu apakah istimewanya implan gigi buatan Malaysia ini berbanding produk implan gigi yang lain?

Dr Firdaus berkata, Novella Ultima berharga lebih murah berbanding implan konvensional, ia juga lebih ‘mesra pengguna’ selain prosedur pemasangannya yang ringkas. Berbanding produk sedia ada yang membabitkan pemasangan implan gigi dua keping, Novella Ultima sebaliknya cuma satu keping.

“Novella Ultima ini dihasilkan dengan keutamaan menjana integrasi gusi dan tulang, sekali gus menguatkan kawasan gusi yang dipasang dengan implan,” katanya.



“Kebanyakan mereka yang memasang implan, memilih implan pasang segera kerana ia mudah dan pemasangan gigi kekal juga dapat dibuat lebih cepat berbanding prosedur lain,” katanya.

Dr Firdaus berkata, implan pasang segera menjadi pilihan 70 peratus pengguna. Namun, mereka yang mengalami masalah gusi (seperti gusi berdarah) atau tulang rapuh tidak boleh menggunakan prosedur ini. Ini kerana tulang gusi mungkin tidak cukup kuat atau nipis untuk menampung implan dan gigi kekal yang dibuat daripada porselin.

Jelasnya, ada perbezaan antara implan Novella Ultima dengan implan konvensional. Pertamanya, implan gigi yang ada sekarang kebanyakannya adalah implan dua keping (two piece implant). Justeru, apabila implan ditanam pada tulang gusi, pengguna akan memakai gigi palsu untuk tidak mencatatkan penampilan dan menutup implan yang ditanam.

Bagaimanapun, dari segi fungsinya, gigi palsu tidak praktikal. Ia mengehadkan keupayaan pengguna untuk mengunyah, menyiat dan menggigit makanan.

Namun, menerusi implan satu keping (one piece implant) Novella Ultima, sebaik implan ditanam, gigi sementara yang dibuat khas mengikut acuan gusi pengguna dan boleh berfungsi sebaik selesai prosedur. Pengguna boleh menikmati makanan sejuk atau panas tanpa risau akan menjejaskan gigi sementara.

“Implan konvensional juga menggunakan skru. Tugasnya pemasangannya agak rumit. Skru digunakan bagi menguatkan tulang gusi kerana implan dikhuatiri bergoyang dan tidak cukup kuat menampung implan dan gigi kekal,” kata Dr Firdaus.

Namun, berdasarkan penyelidikan yang dibuat sendiri oleh Dr Firdaus mendapati, jika tulang gusi kuat dan implan titanium dikasarkan buatannya, ia boleh menekan kawasan gusi terbabit dan mejadikannya terlekat kuat pada gusi.

Dari segi rekaan pula, jika dulu di tepi leher implan konvensional ada lebihan yang diruncingkan bagi menyangkut implan pada gusi, tetapi pada implan baru ini lebihan itu dibuat berbentuk empat segi bagi menguatkan lagi tautannya pada gusi.

Disebabkan implan berfungsi sebagai alternatif gigi asal yang rosak, panjang implan adalah berdasarkan panjang akar gigi yang akan diganti. Umumnya akar gigi orang dewasa adalah antara lapan hingga 15 milimeter dengan lebar antara 3.3 mm hingga 6 mm.

'Fungsi kuat menyamai gigi kekal'

DIREKA berdasarkan konsep implan pasang segera (immediate loading procedure), memungkinkan pembedahan gusi tidak diperlukan. Prosedur begini memudahkan pesakit dan menjadi antara pilihan utama pengamal perubatan pergigian.

Implan pasang segera bermaksud implan yang ditanam sejurus selepas gigi yang perlu diganti itu, dibuang. Manakala prosedur implan tertunda dan prosedur implan lewat pula mengambil masa sekitar tiga minggu selepas gigi dicabut sebelum pemasangan implan berkenaan.

Menerusi prosedur pasang segera, gusi yang ditanam implan kemudiannya diacu dengan acuan gigi bagi mendapat bentuk dan ukuran gigi yang tepat. Proses ini bagi membolehkan gigi sementara dihasilkan dan dipasang di atas implan. Selepas prosedur itu, pesakit sudah boleh meneruskan aktiviti harian termasuk menikmati pelbagai hidangan makanan.

Apa yang istimewa, gigi sementara yang dipasang di atas implan Novella Ultima ini boleh berfungsi seperti biasa. Pengguna boleh mengunyah dan menggigit makanan tanpa perlu risau.

Dalam tempoh sembilan minggu, gigi sementara itu dikeluarkan dan sekali lagi acuan pada gusi dibuat dan kali ini untuk mendapatkan ukuran dan bentuk gigi kekal. Dalam masa lima lima ke tujuh hari kemudian, gigi kekal dipasang dengan disimen pada implan.

Pemasangan implan gigi

Langkah pertama: Meletakkan implan. Sebaik gigi yang perlu diganti itu dibuang, pesakit dibius. Doktor akan menanam implan terus ke tulang rahang. Tiada pembedahan gusi diperlukan.

Langkah kedua: Penggunaan gigi sementara. Selepas implan dipasang, doktor gigi akan mengacu rahang bagi menghasilkan gigi ganti kekal (permanent crowning). Doktor gigi akan membentuk gigi sementara (bagi menutup implan) yang membantu penampilan anda sementara gigi kekal dipasang.

Langkah ketiga: Meletak gigi ganti kekal. Selepas sembilan minggu, tulang gusi semakin kuat berintergrasi dengan implan. Gigi sementara diganti dan gigi kekal diletakkan. Kekuatan dan fungsinya hampir sama dengan gigi kekal.

Info
Implan gigi


Gigi alternatif seperti implan sudah dimulakan sejak ribuan tahun lalu. Peradaban pra-kolumbia Maya sudah memulakannya sebelum Per-Ingvar Brånemark (bapa pergigian moden dunia) memulakan penyelidikan tentang implan titanium 1,350 tahun selepas itu.

Uniknya, Brånemark bukan pun doktor gigi. Sebaliknya, pakar bedah ortopedik dari Sweden yang mendapati titanium dan tisu hidup boleh berinteraksi dengan baik. Penemuan itu sebenarnya dibuat secara tidak sengaja!

Implan gigi tidak sama dengan gigi palsu. Implan bertindak sebagai akar kepada gigi yang hilang. Ia akan ditanam dalam gusi sebelum gigi yang diperbuat daripada porselin dilekatkan di atasnya. Implan boleh digunakan sama ada untuk tulang gusi atas atau bawah. Implan boleh bertindak menganti sebatang gigi atau sebarisan gigi dalam masa yang sama. Namun, pemasangan implan tidak boleh melebihi 11 batang.

Ada beberapa jenis implan dan antara yang popular ialah implan menyerupai akar (root shape implant) dan implan satu keping (one piece implant).

Projek Monorel Scomi Di Mumbai Jalan Lancar

Oleh P. Vijian NEW DELHI, (Bernama) -- Scomi Engineering Bhd, yang memperoleh projek monarel di Mumbai bersama-sama rakan kongsi Larsen & Toubro Ltd (L&T) mengesahkan bahawa kerja-kerja bagi projek itu tidak terjejas dengan krisis pengganas di bandar raya itu.

Naib presiden kanan (projek khas) Scomi, Kanesan Velupillai berkata satu pasukan dianggotai kira-kira 30 pakar warga Malaysia dan India, yang telah menyusun rancangan untuk projek mega itu, tidak terganggu dengan serangan pengganas berkenaan minggu lepas di bandar raya yang merupakan pusat kewangan negara itu.

"Sejak kami menerima LOI (surat hasrat), kami mengadakan satu pasukan untuk memuktamadkan pelan akhir, menubuhkan depot dan mendirikan bengkel.

"Beberapa hari lepas agak kurang aktif dan kini kami kembali berfungsi sepenuhnya. Kami tidak boleh melengahkannya dan kami kini mngikut jadual," kata Velupillai kepada Bernama, di luar acara Persidangan Mobiliti Bandar di Delhi. Bulan lepas, Lembaga Pembangunan Wilayah Metropolitan Mumbai (MMRD) memberikan projek bernilai RM1.85 bilion itu kepada Scomi dan rakan perkongsiannya L&T, bagi membina monorel sepanjang 19.5 kilometer dari bahagian barat daya bandar raya itu di Gadge Maharaj Chowk (Jacob Circle) menuju ke timur laut ke Chembur.

Projek monorel Mumbai, yang pertama seumpama di India, dijangka siap dalam masa 30 bulan dari tarikh dikeluarkan surat penerimaan.

"Kami masih dalam kedudukan yang baik dari segi pelaburan di India, kami tidak mengambil mudah isu di India. Keselamatan merupakan satu isu dan kami mengambil langkah berjaga-jaga sewajarnya.

"Kami adalah syarikat global dan kami berada di negara-negara seperti Sudan dan Nigeria, negara yang amat sukar. Ia bukan suatu yang kami tidak biasa. Ia hanya melibatkan langkah berjaga-jaga yang sewajarnya dan langkah risiko," katanya.

Semasa serangan pengganas itu, di sebahagian besar bandar raya dan hotel-hotel, lebih 170 orang terbunuh manakala 250 cedera.
