Phenomenal rise in the use of Internet by Malaysians, Asians
International business news network Bloomberg has reported that South-East Asia (SEA)’s online economy is reaching US$50 billion (RM200 billion) this year.
It also reported that SEA will have 330 million monthly active Internet users by end of 2017 - equivalent to the size of the US population - after adding more than 70 million users since 2015.

“That’s a phenomenal rise in statistics. It shows Asians in general, Malaysians in particular, are as internet savvy as the Europeans and Americans,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the statistics showed that the conventional and traditional way of doing (retail) business “is slowly but surely losing popularity”.

“Businesses must start to innovate to adapt or synergise their operations to include the cyberworld marketplace, Failing to do so will surely mean stagnancy or zero growth in business,” he added.

欧洲艾滋病毒 - 令人难以置信,大马需要对欧洲人采取预防措施 (HIV Europe – mind boggling, Malaysia needs to take precautionary measures against Europeans)

全球约有3千700万人感染艾滋病毒的艾滋病人。

而且过去十年来,欧洲新近诊断的艾滋病毒感染率从2007年的每10万人中的12人,上升到2016年的每10万人中的18.2人,上升幅度高达52%。

“这是不准确或不真实的说只有非洲等较贫穷的地区具有艾滋病高风险。艾滋病疫情在富裕国家的风险也相当高。”民政党副议长赛阿都拉萨说。

他表示,星报在线报道路透社的标题为“世界卫生组织发出警告:欧洲艾滋病疫情加剧”,不仅令人大开眼界,而且也唤醒了政府对疫情保持警惕。 

赛阿都拉萨呼吁大马卫生当局“认真对待报告”,加强执法和补救措施和行动,确保欧洲的疫情不会对大马造成影响。

他说,抵达大马的欧洲人应该强制宣布是否是艾滋病毒带菌者。



赛阿都拉萨是民政党第14届大选武吉兰樟州议席(N.37)协调人表示,因此阅读了马新社的标题“大马新艾滋病毒病例下降42%”的报告是最令人振奋的。

然而赛阿都拉萨警告,州和联邦卫生当局不要掉以轻心,而是“采取积极的措施和执法措施,防止艾滋病病毒的传播”。

他说:“把艾滋病毒 - 艾滋病问题视为理所当然会使大马陷入麻烦,在疫情爆发后才采取行动,为时已晚了。”

以下是星报在线和自由今日大马的在线新闻:

"世界卫生组织发出警告:欧洲艾滋病疫情加剧
2017年11月28日




伦敦路透社11月28日 - 卫生官员周二表示,自有记录以来,欧洲被诊断感染艾滋病病毒的人数于2016年达到了最高水平,显示该地区的疫情正“以惊人的速度增长”。

该机构与欧洲疾病预防控制中心(ECDC)的一份联合报告指出,2016年欧洲53个国家共有16万人感染了艾滋病病毒。

该份报告说其中约有80%的患者分布在东欧。

“这是一年的最高纪录,如果这种趋势持续下去,我们将无法实现在2030年之前阻止艾滋病流行的目标。” 世界卫生组织欧洲区域主任苏兹安纳·杰克布在一份声明中说。 

艾滋病病毒感染的早期诊断非常重要,因为患者如能尽早开始药物治疗,会增加其健康长寿的机会。

欧洲疾病预防控制中心主任安德里·埃蒙说:“欧洲需要在艾滋病防治方面做更多的工作,从预计感染事件到被确诊的平均时间是…

Support Unicef’s call for a children-friendly Internet

Support Unicef’s call for a children-friendly Internet
The world communities, especially Malaysians, should go all out to support Unicef’s call to develop a children-friendly Internet.

The Internet has been extensively and globally abused by criminals and pornographic promoters.

“Therefore, it is time that a safer cyberspace or Internet be developed exclusively for children,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He lauded Unicef’s call to develop the “children’s internet” as there were too many inappropriate postings in cyberspace that were unfit for the view of the young.

“There is certainly an urgent need to do something about what can be viewed or accessed in the Internet by those who are still at a tender age.

“They are too young to understand what is good and what is bad. Their character may even be adversely affected by the postings in the Internet,” he added.

If you love your children, heed this advice!
In today’s 21st Century Digital World, children are no more attracted to playing traditional games like marbles, tops etc.

As young as a year old, they start grabbing handphones and other electronic digital gadgets to explore.

“Allowing children to play with such gadgets is not loving them. It may bring harm to their health and growth,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said parents today tend to ignore the relentless warnings and dangers that electronic gadgets posed to children and also adults.

“Do they really love their children? Or are they just plain ignorant or couldn’t care a less?”

He said sound and quality sleep was the most important factor in the growth of not only children but also teenagers and adults.

“The lack of quality sleep will most certainly affect one’s health,” he added.

Malunya Malaysia! (Shame for Malaysia!)

Malunya Malaysia! (Shame for Malaysia!)
When Singapore opted (some say it was kicked out by Malaysia) to separate from Malaysia on Aug 9, 1965, many opined that the island state would not survive.

They say Singaporeans would cry and beg to return to Malaysia because the island republic had zero natural resources.

Malaysia was blessed with rich natural resources, namely tin, rubber, oil palm and even oil and gas.

Some five decades after, Singapore has overtaken Malaysia by leaps and bounds in terms of economy and technology. It is also a world financial centre.

“And today (Tuesday Dec 12) Singapore launched its first large-scale electric car-sharing programme,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“Electric cars (EVs)? Car-sharing to reduce traffic? Where is Malaysia?

“I doubt the Transport Ministry even knows the the reality of electric vehicles and the evolving global motor industry,” he added.

Help reduce the pain and sufferings of abused children

Help reduce the pain and sufferings of abused children
Malaysians welcome the setting up of a special criminal court to hear sexual crimes against children in every state by the end of next year.

It is a timely move to treat such heinous crimes seriously and to protect children.

“However, enforcement and prosecution are just aimed at bringing to justice such criminals,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said all Malaysians should help to be “the eyes and ears” of communities and societies and be on the alert or lookout of suspicious situations.

“Report suspicious happenings and behaviour. Prevention is better than cure. So, save children from being abused before the crime is committed or perpetuated further.

“At least society can help reduce the pain and sufferings of children who are being abused,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), urged Malaysians to help play a significant role in…

Believe it or not! It’s down to 'buy one free one' for link houses in Penang!

Believe it or not! It’s down to 'buy one free one' for link houses in Penang!
It’s perhaps the first ever “buy one free one” for link houses in Malaysia and it’s happening in Penang! And it is for completed units!

You better believe it is happening and it is in Penang, coming from a reputable property developer that has projects nationwide.

“The ‘buy one free one offer’ is being promote by word of mouth in Penang. The developer is not publicly advertising, for obvious (egoistic or embarrassing) reasons,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the domestic and global economic slowdown had naturally created the opportunity for consumers to unite and force down property prices.

“Supply has outstripped demand. That’s the power of supply and demand, creating a glut in the property market, forcing developers to reduce prices to sell their houses,” he added.
