Nextgreen extends MoU with Japanese firms to explore green tech partnership
Syahirah Syed Jaafar January 10, 2020 18:46 pm +08


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 10): Nextgreen Global Bhd said today IHI Corp and Nomura Holdings Inc are still in the midst of carrying out the feasibility study on the development of power generation and other auxiliary facilities for Nextgreen’s Green Technology Park in Pahang (GTPP), as well as projects in Negeri Sembilan and Sarawak.

The study encompasses the development of a 30-megawatt biomass power plant, alkaline recovery plant and wastewater treatment plant in GTPP.

In a bourse filing today, Nextgreen said it is also still in discussion on the collaboration structure with the two Japanese companies including the establishment of a joint venture arrangement and terms of the definitive agreement.

As such, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) entered into by Nextgreen with Nomura and IHI in November 2018 to explore
collaboration and investment for GTPP, has been extended for another year.

The MoU allows the three parties to evaluate potential collaboration involving Nextgreen’s technology of converting palm oil wastes into pulp and paper, IHI’s proficiency in renewable energy and Nomura’s financial expertise.

Situated on 410 acres of land, GTPP is the brain child of Nextgreen managing director Datuk Lim Thiam Huat to bring Malaysia to the world stage on renewable paper and pulp products and create greater environmental awareness through the efficient utilisation of palm oil industry wastes and biomass to produce 'green' products.

IHI is a Tokyo-listed heavy industry manufacturer, while Nomura — listed on Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Singapore and New York stock exchanges — is a financial services group, with financial know-how for the realisation of green technology.

Nextgreen shares closed one sen or 1.32% higher at 39 sen today, for a market capitalisation of RM194.1 million.

Shell waives top-up charges on Touch 'N Go at all its stations along NSE
Joanna Tan Hui Shen January 16, 2020 11:05 am +08
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 16): Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd has waived the 50 sen top-up fee on Touch 'N Go at all 27 of its stations located along the North-South Expressway (NSE) effective today.

Shell Malaysia and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd managing director Shairan Huzani Husain said the move was as Shell understood the challenge Malaysians face against the rising cost of living.

"Hopefully, forgoing the Touch 'N Go top-up charges at all stations along NSE, as a start, will give our customers one less worry when travelling or fuelling up at Shell during long journeys," he said.

Macroeconomic stability drives Malaysia's economic growth
By Bernama January 17, 2020 @ 4:34pm
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Macroeconomic stability will drive Malaysia’s economic growth this year with Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth of between 4.4 per cent and 4.9 per cent easily achievable, said IQI Global chief economist Shan Saeed.

The country he said, will continue to be on the global investors’ radar due to its solid economic position and importance in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

Shan even predicted the ringgit to improve to RM3.97 against the US dollar this year.

“The global economy is heading for a major slowdown but despite this, Malaysia’s economy would demonstrate economic confidence due to strong productivity,” he told Bernama, adding that the country still has macroeconomic stability elements of political and economic stability, policy certainty and economic confidence.

He applauded the government’s move to align herself with a technology-driven approach with the strategic intent to enhance productivity through innovation and technology.

“Government is cognizant of the fact that adopting technology will bolster growth in the country and in the Asean region.

Fifth-generation wireless technology (5G), electric vehicle (EV) and artificial intelligence (AI) are on the top of the government main agenda at the moment.

“Top Chinese technology companies like Alibaba and Huawei are already here in Malaysia since they fathom the government’s initiative and encouragement,” he said.

In the next 5-10 years, Shan said technology-savvy labour force would drive the GDP growth trajectory for many economies globally including Malaysia.

Finnish method for pilot project in Perak shows student progress
By Hanna Sheikh Mokhtar - December 10, 2019 @ 3:51pm

Quote:
The Larut Matang and Selama District Education Office in Perak has gone a step further when it enlisted the help of a Finnish language learning solution provider -- Finnish Education Solutions Sdn. Bhd., in introducing the Moomin Language School concept, the latest Finnish method for early foreign language learning.

A pilot project that was conducted from January to November 2018 together at SK Seri Selama resulted in an 18 per cent increase in student learning progress when assessed at the end of the year. Sixty students aged six and seven from this rural school participated in the project.

The project was a result of a visit by the Perak state education office to Helsinki, Finland in 2018 to observe good practices which could be adopted or adapted to schools in Malaysia, in particular those in the Larut Matang and Selama district in Perak. They also had to find out if the Finnish programme learning objectives could fit into the national curriculum/CEFR in Malaysia.

Larut Matang and Selama deputy district education officer, Mohamad Ravi JC Abdullah who headed the delegation said that they found the trip rewarding. At one of the schools in Helsinki, they observed how a robot named Elias was used to teach language to preschool students who were shy. Elias managed to instruct the students and got them to interact with ‘him’.

Watching that, convinced the Malaysian visitors to give the play-while-learning-concept a go on their very own turf to see if the Finnish method is indeed a more effective tool to promote learning in younger pupils instead of using textbooks.

“Back in Perak, the programme was carried out with two preschool classes and one Year 1 class,” said Mohamad Ravi.

“The feedback from teachers and parents of the children have been positive. One family that did not initially have a smartphone went and invested in one for their child in order to continue with the programme,” he added.

The concept used in the project utilises digital tools and spaced learning to create a safe, engaging and effective way for children to learn a new language.

Finnish Education Solutions Sdn Bhd founder Petri Karjalainen said: “The Moomin Language School concept combines a mobile language learning game with predesigned on-site playful group sessions.

“Children in Finnish kindergartens, preschool and early primary years start their lifelong learning path by playing and having fun. In pedagogically designed play and expert care, children don’t even realise how much they are learning while playing,” he added.

The Finnish school system is renowned all over the world because of their strong performance in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) tests. Educators and schools from other countries have been trying to emulate the Finnish school system with the hope that it can help boost literacy among the children in their schools.

“Education in Finland is different than in many other parts of the world. The children in Finland have the least number of instructional hours and the least amount of homework. But in terms of well-being, they top the list. So that says a lot about the relationship between learning and the need to enjoy the learning process,” Petri said when asked to pinpoint the reason behind Finland’s successful education system.

He said that there is also a correlation between doing well in games and learning abilities. Students who do not fare well in the games generally have problems in learning too. Teachers have observed that this is mostly because of distractions and can be solved by giving students headphones to wear while they play the game and learn.

Petri explained that every day, the pupils in SK Seri Selama were given individual learning instructions for five to 10 minutes only. This was to build their vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation.

Once a week, they have a group learning session to build their communication skills. Here, the teachers break up the classes into smaller groups and led playful sessions with the pupils.

The initial concern that teachers here would not know how to implement the programme were proven wrong. By the fourth month, not only were the teachers, who were given detailed lesson plans, carrying out the lessons seamlessly, they were also able to adapt the lessons where necessary.

The Larut Matang Selama District Education Office in collaboration with Finnish Education Solutions Sdn. Bhd. plans to replicate the programme on a bigger scale to see if the same results could be achieved.

For this to happen, they would require more funding. A Finnish sponsor Spinfy Oy and Khazanah Nasional Berhad helped finance the pilot project.

Taylor's students learn the Michelin star way
By Rayyan Rafidi - January 8, 2020 @ 4:27pm
Quote:
“Be yourself and most importantly, cook with your heart. Instead of putting too many things on the plate, make sure that it is well-cooked and tastes wonderful,” said chef Cedric Bourassin.

Bourassin leads Le Berceau des Sens of the Swiss hospitality management school Ecole hoteliere de Lausanne (EHL), the first training restaurant to have a Michelin star in the world.

Taylor’s University recently welcomed EHL to hold a three-day masterclass in collaboration with the Taylor’s Culinary Institute, which served to provide students with international and industry exposure.

Featuring Bourassin, Benjamin Thouvenin and Jeremy Plassat of EHL, the programme culminated in a culinary showcase which provided guests with a seven-course fine dining experience.

Bourassin said this exchange could widen the students’ perspective.

“It’s good to open your mind by gaining knowledge from all over the world. Everyone learns during the masterclass. Coming from different cultures, I get to teach and learn from the students at the same time.”

The Michelin-starred chef saw the potential for Taylor’s students to bring Malaysian cuisine further.

“We recreated French recipes with local Malaysian fish and vegetables. This is a very important goal to achieve — using fresh local produce.

“While working in Japan, I used French techniques with Japanese ingredients. Similarly, students here can achieve something very interesting. Malaysia offers a variety of cuisine from Malay, Chinese to Indian and more.

NACSA developing master plan on cyber security — Wan Azizah
Bernama January 29, 2020 12:01 pm +08
Quote:
PUTRAJAYA (Jan 29): The National Cyber Security Agency (NACSA) is developing a Cyber Security Awareness Master Plan (PIKKS), a strategic plan that will outline the role and responsibilities of various stakeholders in the implementation of cyber security awareness programmes in the country.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said the plan is aimed at coordinating the implementation of cyber security awareness programmes nationwide, to ensure they benefit people nationwide.

“It will also be complemented with plans to promote cyber awareness and security, nurturing and raising awareness of internet and social media users, especially children, teenagers and parents," she said in a special interview by Bernama and RTM at her office here.

She said PIKKS would also focus on instilling cyber hygiene to public and private organisations, including the Critical National Information Infrastucture (CNII).

The document on PIKKS is expected to be released in October, after it has been approved by the Cabinet, she added.

Meanwhile, Dr Wan Azizah said a national cyber crisis exercise known as X-Maya is expected to be held in November this year and will involve the participation of at least 100 CNII agencies to test their readiness and preparedness to face cyber attacks.

“Last year, we were involved at the Asia Pacific-level, we had done it in Malaysia and this year, we are organising it again in the country. This initiative will help the government to identify weaknesses and gaps in terms of procedures and technical expertise of the critical agencies towards improving cyber security in the country, ” she said.

Dr Wan Azizah, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister (KPWKM), said the ministry is selecting 100 women to participate in this year’s Empowering Women in Cyber Risk Management programme.

She said the programme targets women professionals who have been out of work for over six months to be given skills training in cyber security.

“The programme is a continuation of the one implemented last year, which focused on skills training in cyber security, personal data protection, risk management and cyber security incidents," she added.

Bernama February 06, 2020 13:38 pm +08

KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 6): Global Compact Network Malaysia, the local network of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact and Capital Markets Malaysia have jointly launched the Global Compact Network Malaysia Centre of Excellence (COE), here, last month.

The COE is set to drive the strategic development of the sustainability agenda and to accelerate the performance of corporate Malaysia in supporting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It will carry out capacity building activities to train companies on best-in-class corporate sustainability practices and conduct C-suite coaching sessions on reporting and engagement with institutional investors to ultimately prepare corporations to meet global sustainability standards and align themselves with the SDGs.

Capital Markets Malaysia, an affiliate of the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), will provide strategic support and seed funding for the COE as part of its initiative to position Malaysia as a regional centre for sustainable and responsible investment.

“The SC is committed to the development of Malaysia’s sustainable financing and investment ecosystem and will continue to encourage innovation and collaboration by the industry to advance our national sustainability agenda.

"The partnership between Global Compact Network Malaysia and Capital Markets Malaysia is certainly a step forward to enable and accelerate private sector performance in incorporating globally recognized sustainability standards,” said SC chairman Datuk Syed Zaid Albar in a statement.

Meanwhile, UN Global Compact chief for global operations Ole Lund Hansen said country-level initiatives by Global Compact Network Malaysia such as the COE will ensure the Malaysian private sector is delivering on the SDGs.

Sabah court to make history on Wednesday by using AI in sentencing
By Olivia Miwil February 15, 2020 @ 4:13pm



Quote:
History will be made on Wednesday when Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be used for the first time by the Malaysian judiciary in the process of meting out a sentence in a Sabah court.

“This is the first in Asia. From my knowledge, there is no other judiciary using AI except in the United States. It is a big step for the Malaysian judiciary

“On Wednesday, the magistrate (at a Sabah Court) will use the recommendation of AI to mete out a sentence.

-Sabah and Sarawak judiciary would take the first step in embracing AI by getting a machine to assist judicial officers in determining appropriate sentences for certain criminal offences.

-AI would be used to improve efficiency and consistency in sentencing.

-the usage of AI will only act as a guideline to judicial officers in coming to his or her decision.

Malaysia's 5G technology to focus on nine industries
Bernama February 17, 2020 16:55 pm +08

CYBERJAYA (Feb 17): Nine industries have been identified as the focus areas of Malaysia’s 5G technology, which will be rolled out in the third quarter of this year, said Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) chairman Al-Ishsal Ishak.

He said the industries are agriculture, education, entertainment, healthcare, manufacturing, oil and gas, smart city, smart transportation, and tourism.

"5G technology is an economic imperative for Malaysia as it has the power to rejuvenate industries that are integral to the country’s economy," he told a half-day course on the Introduction to Fifth Generation (5G) technology attended by journalists at the MCMC headquarters here today.

Al-Ishsal said 5G is important as the investment in broadband is directly correlated to the country's economic growth.

Citing a World Bank report, he said a 10% increase in fixed broadband penetration would contribute 1.38% to a country's gross domestic product (GDP).

He said according to a study conducted by the Malaysia Institute of Economic Research (MIER), Malaysia should invest significantly in the communication infrastructure sector to achieve economic convergence as a high-income country.

"Following this study, MCMC has approached MIER to conduct a study on the impact of 5G to various industries in Malaysia," he said, adding that no time frame had been set for the study to be completed.

Al-Ishsal said the objective of 5G is to provide a communication infrastructure for the rakyat, especially to enable small entrepreneurs to have the opportunity to participate in various economic activities.

On the country's 5G technology progress, he said by June, six states are expected to complete the 5G Demonstration Project.
