Go for China’s new ‘trackless’ rail technology to resolve public transport woes!


Go for China’s new ‘trackless’ rail technology to resolve public transport woes!



Malaysia has been obsessed with the construction of various rail transport systems to resolve its public transport and traffic congestion woes in its cities.


Perhaps it is time to think of the latest and cheaper rail transport system that China is set to launch and use next year.

China is set to break another transport barrier that it started developing in 2013.

And it is a train that runs on virtual tracks! (View the two video clips above)

“Unlike the conventional trains that are so costly to construct, the trains that run on virtual tracks will be so much more cheaper to construct,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“The federal government, especially the Transport Ministry, must seriously consider opting for China’s latest rail transport technology.

“The cost savings can then be put to better use to help Malaysians and Malaysia,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said “there is no better reason now for state and federal governments to halt all plans to construct public passenger trains”.

“They need to sit down, brainstorm, review all its future plans with regards to mass public transport and its efficiency. The cost savings will be significant,” he added.

Syed Razak said state and federal governments must always react fast to consider embracing new technologies to not only keep abreast with the times but also enhance efficiency.

The Terminator’s warning to Trump and the rest of the world


 The Terminator’s warning to Trump and the rest of the world



American actor Arnold Schwarzenegger needs no introduction. He is globally recognised.

However, the former California governor was neither play acting nor acting in a video clip that had him saying: “So, Mr President, choose the future.”

“Yes. The world must take The Terminator’s message in the video clip above seriously. Malaysia too must do the same,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.



He said both state and federal governments must seriously consider policies to further protect Malaysia’s environment for the future.

“There will be no future if we don’t act fast and do it. Our continuous promotion of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles, logging and property development policies, etc must all be tightly controlled.

“Giving in to the demands of greed and tycoons at the expense of the environment cannot be allowed to continue unabated,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), urged both state and federal governments to come up with strict green policies and guidelines for any development that damages the environment.

“Developers and loggers must be compelled to adhere to strict green policies and guidelines to promote sustainable environment for Malaysia.

“It will be even costlier if we wait until the environment is destroyed and to heal it, just like we are seeing in the mega cities in China.

"China had developed without a care for the environment or with any green policies for sustainable development. They are now paying dearly to heal their environment," he added.

He also urged Malaysian corporates and tycoons to not only think of profits when launching any development project.

“A clean and sustainable environment for Malaysia is also for your children and generations, not only Malaysians. Think green, commit to green policies and guidelines for the future of Malaysians and Malaysia,” he added.

"Schwarzenegger: Climate change more important than partisan politics

AFP

| June 24, 2017

Just a few weeks after US President Donald Trump announced he was pulling America out of the Paris Climate accord, Schwarzenegger said all countries had to work together in order to protect the environment.



PARIS: Former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger urged people from both ends of the political spectrum to join a “crusade” to save the planet, after a Friday meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.

“It is absolutely imperative that we not make it a political issue,” he said.

“This is not the right versus the left because there is no liberal air or conservative air. We all breathe the same air. There is no liberal water or conservative water, we all drink the same water,” the star of “The Terminator” movies said.

Just a few weeks after US President Donald Trump announced he was pulling America out of the Paris Climate accord, Schwarzenegger said all countries had to work together in order to protect the environment.

“It is extremely important in order for us to be successful in creating a green and clean future for our children and grandchildren, which is a responsibility that we have, to hand the world in better shape to the next generation than we inherited it,” he said.

“We all have to work together in order to get this done,” he said, adding that he and Macron had discussed the climate issue in depth during their meeting.

He praised the French leader as a formidable force for France and for the world, particularly on environmental issues, which were something that “we both feel very passionate about.

最近,全球发现假食品已经暴露出来,特别是在中国市场。

现在在外吃食品可以说绝对是非常危险的,因为你可能不知不觉地在吃假食物,从而危及你或你孩子的健康。 (查看上述两个附加的视频剪辑) 

即使是简单的纯白馒头 / 杯蛋糕或馅饼也可以作为假货出售或供应。

民政党副议长赛阿都拉萨说:“在这个现代化科学技术的世界,不道德的商人或企业家现在可以制造假食品来获取疯狂的利润。”

他说,作为一个关心和负责任的联邦政府,在这种假冒食品还没有进入国内市场之前就必须带头采取行动。

“他们说预防胜于治疗。预防措施也比以后才说非常非常抱歉更好,”他补充说。

赛阿都拉萨或众所周知的白毛,呼吁联邦政府紧急颁布惩罚性法律,以惩罚潜在的“邪恶”餐馆和经营者,他们利用销售假冒食品来获取“疯狂利润”。

“这样邪恶的人不能再给予任何机会。他们必须被监禁,然后在食品和饮料行业被列入黑名单。“他补充说。

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,应该严惩“邪恶人”,因为“他们对人类健康和生命特别是儿童造成伤害”。

他说国会议员必须团结一致,推行更严厉的法律惩罚潜在的假食品卖家或经营者。

他说:“在这些假冒食品打击国内市场和消费者之前,必须做到这一点,”他补充说,议员们应该认真并紧急看待这个问题。

Uphold and treasure national harmony and unity for Malaysia’s socio-economic progress

Uphold and treasure national harmony and unity for Malaysia’s socio-economic progress


Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Maaf Zahir & Batin to Malaysians.

As we, Malaysian Muslims, start celebrating a safe month-long Ramadhan fast with open houses, it is time to renew our pledge to uphold Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance.

Islam has been tarnished globally by extremists and terrorists who have resorted to violence and murder in the name of our religion.


“This is absolutely not right in the eyes of the Almighty. They are the minority Muslims and we pray that they remain so (minority), if not wiped out.

“As far as Malaysians are concerned, the majority remains steadfast to upholding and treasuring national harmony and unity to ensure Malaysia’s socio-economic progress,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), urges Malaysians to unreservedly reject extremism and terrorism.

He called on Malaysians to strenuously help forge and consolidate community harmony and unity via programmes and projects aimed at ensuring a harmonious multi-racial multi-religious Malaysia.


SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN

Here are pictures of locations where Syed Razak personally strung up banners in Bukit Lanjan with the help of an aide to wish Malaysians SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL FITRI:

BUKIT LANJAN: Pek Moh urges cops to nab the kurang ajar 'vandals' in BSD


BUKIT LANJAN: Pek Moh urges cops to nab the kurang ajar 'vandals' in BSD

Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff has hit out at the kurang ajar (taught less) elements of society in Bandar Sri Damansara (BSD) rearing their ugly head hours before Malaysians celebrate Hari Raya Aidil Fitri on Sunday.

He said such scums of society must not be allowed to be emboldened with their samseng (gangster) ways. “They must be caught and punished or they will become a threat to public order.”


“I have lodged a report with the Bandar Sri Damansara police station at about 4pm today. I urge the police to step up their crime prevention patrols or at least raise their alertness to nab the culprits,” he added.

One of the 50 Hari Raya festive greeting banners that is still “surviving” near the BSD police station.
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest Bukit Lanjan N.37 in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said he had put up 50 banners in Bukit Lanjan to wish Malaysians “Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri Maaf Zahir & Batin”.

“Four of the banners were cut and are now missing. I have yet to check the other areas. I urge the police to treat the matter seriously.

“The banners are festive greetings, not political messages. If this is happening during the Ramadhan Holy Month, what will the hostility be like during GE14?” he asked.

Syed Razak, a.k.a Pek Moh Bukit Lanjan, said such kurang ajar acts had happened last Christmas and Chinese New Year “but I did not lodge any police report”.

“This time around, I am very, very upset and am taking such hostile acts seriously. They are also disrespecting Muslims and Islam,” he added.


He said responsible Malaysians who treasure peace and harmony would not resort to such acts that could ignite public disorder.

Use the ‘feel good’ festivities to strengthen national unity


 Use the ‘feel good’ festivities to strengthen national unity



Malaysians and corporates are urged to use the “good feel” during festivities to help forge unity among communities.



This will not only consolidate or strengthen national unity, it will also make Malaysia a peaceful and harmonious multi-racial multi-religious nation.


“Such a stable, peaceful and ideal country will surely attract more investors, both local and foreign,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“Be it Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, Chinese New Year, Deepavali or Christmas, we must all respect one another and celebrate together as one or Malaysians.

“Race must not be allowed to sow seeds of discord among communities. Race must not be allowed to divide Malaysians,” he said, reiterating that religious bigots and racists should have no place in the country.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said “religious bigots and racists” are now a minority.

“But we must not take their antics and threats to national unity lightly. Malaysians must all help promote communal and national unity to ensure Malaysia’s future.

“This we can do by organising and participating in programmes and activities that bring Malaysians together,” he said at a Bazaar Ramadhan in Taman Metropolitan Kepong (off MRR2) on June 22, 2017. Gerakan president and Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Mah Siew Keong and Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory Gerakan chairman Lau Hoi Keong were also present where vouchers were distributed to the rakyat (people) to buy goodies from some 90 stalls.

Syed Razak said Malaysians must remain vigilant and wary of the threats posed by religious bigots and racists.

“Do not let them grow in numbers or Malaysia will be finished,” he added.

If you care about your kids and yourself …


 If you care about your kids and yourself …

The Star Online posted a Tech News article titled “Seven reasons you need to care about your kids’ online privacy”.

In fact, it is not about just caring your kids. It is also about caring for yourself.

“You only have yourself to blame if the internet nightmare befalls you and your loved ones,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said cyberspace “is today the most dangerous place to venture into”.

“It is now infested with cyber criminals who are lurking for easy ‘meat’. It is also splattered with lots of fake news or misinformation,” he added.

Syed Razak said: “There is no doubt that we cannot live without Information Communications Technology (ICT). But we have to really take all possible precautions when we embrace ICT.

“It is better safe than to be sorry later. When transactions go awry or all wrong in the internet, it is the beginning of your misery, and perhaps also a protracted one,” he added.



Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said cybercrime “is absolutely complex and faceless”.

“That makes it even more dangerous. Cybercriminals are absolutely vicious and merciless,” he said, adding that “it is a folly to take the internet access for granted, especially with children”.

Seven reasons you need to care about your kids’ online privacy

BY CAROLINE KNORR


Here's why you should know about your kids' online privacy. — Common Sense Media/TNS

If you don't want to have the living daylights scared out of you, don't talk to an expert on kids' online privacy. (sic) (go talk to ...)

If you knew what was really out there – online predators, identity thieves, data miners – you'd lock up the Internet and throw away the key.

The truth is, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The Internet is so woven into our lives, we need to be aware of the worst-case scenarios that can strike when we're unprepared. Below are a few of those scary things that can and do happen. But with some eyes and ears to the ground, they are totally preventable.

1. Your kid could be spied on. Smart toys including My Friend Cayla, Hello Barbie, and CloudPets are designed to learn and grow with your kid. Cool, right? Unfortunately, many of these toys have privacy problems. As the 2015 data breach of Vtech's InnoTab Max uncovered, hackers specifically target kids because they offer clean credit histories and unused Social Security numbers that they can use for identity theft. These toys also collect a lot of information about your kid, and they aren't always clear about when they do it and how they use it.

Protect yourself. Make sure you buy a toy that has a good privacy policy that you understand. Only provide required information, not the optional stuff they ask for, and turn off the toy when it's not being used.

2. Your kid could get accused of a crime. Everyone has the right to privacy, especially in their own home. But home assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Mattel Aristotle are designed to butt their noses into conversations. These devices collect – and store – untold amounts of data. It's unclear what the companies do with the extraneous "noise" they pick up. And if it's subpoenaed, they might have to hand it over. Say your kid jokes about terrorism or something else illegal; if there's an investigation into those activities, the companies might have to cough up the transcripts. In Arkansas, a prosecutor asked for a murder suspect's Echo smart speaker in case its information could shed light on the crime. The suspect agreed to hand over the recordings, and Amazon was compelled to make them available.

Protect yourself. Turn off your home assistant's microphone when you're not using it. You also can prune your data in your devices' app settings, deleting stuff you don't want to store on your phone or in the companies' cloud servers. Or choose not to use a home assistant until the privacy regulations are ironed out.

3. Your kid could get hurt. With location-aware social media such as Twitter, Kik, and Facebook, kids can reveal their actual, physical locations to all their contacts – plenty of whom they don't know personally. Imagine a selfie that's location-tagged and says, "Bored, by myself, just hanging out looking for something fun to do."

Protect yourself. Turn off location sharing on your kids' devices, both in the phone settings and in the apps they use, so their status updates and photos are not automatically tagged with their locations. Make sure your kids never tell strangers their address, their school name, where they hang out, or where they're going to be. Teach kids to choose "no" when asked to share their locations.

4. Your kid could lose out on opportunities. Posting wild and crazy pics from prom '17 paints a picture for potential admissions counsellors, hiring managers, and others whom teens want to impress. They may not care that your kid partied – only that he showed poor judgment in posting compromising images.

Protect yourself. Tell your kid not to share photos of questionable activities on the Internet. If those kinds of photos do wind up online, tell your kid to ask his or her friends either to take them down or not to tag them so the photos can't be traced back. And remember to model responsible online sharing; don't share photos of your kid without asking permission, and share them with a limited audience – for example, only grandparents.

5. Your kid could be sold short. Schools are increasingly using software from third-party providers to teach, diagnose potential learning issues, and interact with students. This software includes online learning lessons, standardised tests, and 1:1 device programmes. And the companies that administer the programmes are typically allowed to collect, store, and sell your kids' performance records. Wondering about all those offers for supplemental reading classes you're receiving in the mail? Maybe your kid stumbled on her reading assessments – and marketers are trying to sell you "solutions." Curious why Harvard isn't trying to recruit your kid? Maybe they already decided she's not Ivy League material based on her middle school grades.

Protect yourself. If you know that your kid is going to be using third-party programs at school, find out what the software opts them into and what they can opt out of. Tell your kid to only supply required, not optional, information. If you have the time (and the stomach for it), you could read through the privacy policies of all the software your kid uses at school. Otherwise, talk to the principal about how the school vets companies' policies. If you're not satisfied, raise the issue with other parents (say, at the PTA meeting) to learn how your school can do more to protect student privacy.

6. Your kid could be limited. As schools automate procedures, they create student records with sensitive – and potentially damaging – information. Under the US Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), schools are allowed to share certain information without getting parents' consents. That means that an individual education plan (IEP), attendance records, a disciplinary record, prescribed medication, or even a high body mass index could be disclosed and used to unfairly disqualify your kid from opportunities, such as advanced classes, government services, or special schools.

Protect yourself. Schools are required to send parents information on how they handle student privacy. Find out what information your school collects, how it's stored, who gets to see it, and what future administrators are allowed to do with it. Under FERPA, you have the right to request, correct, or add an amendment to your kid's records through your district's educational department.

7. Your kid could be humiliated. Sharing fun stuff from your life with friends is fine. But oversharing is never a good idea. When kids post inappropriate material – whether it's a sexy selfie, an explicit photo session with a friend, an overly revealing rant, or cruel comments about others – the results can be humiliating if those posts become public or shared widely.

Protect yourself. Talk to your kids about keeping private things private, considering how far information can travel and how long it can last, and how they can talk to their friends about respecting one another's personal privacy. — Common Sense Media/Tribune News Service"
