What’s up docs?


 What’s up docs?

It is unnerving that as many as 500 clinics operated by general practitioners (GPs) were estimated to have closed down between 2014 and 2016 due to poor business.


So, where is the shortage of doctors in Malaysia as widely claimed? And the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) is worried that the situation may worsen.

“But Malaysians are still pressuring their children to pursue medical degrees,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff.

“Since there is an apparent glut in the number of GPs in Malaysia, why are parents, especially the Chinese community, continue to want their children to pursue the medical profession?


“Why not keep up with the times, pursue academic and technical tertiary programmes that suit the innovative demands of technology and development?” he asked. (Read these for context:

Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election, said parents today “much review and change their mindset when raising their children and preparing them for their future as working adults”.

“There are indeed too many doctors and lawyers in Malaysia. What we need are innovative science and technology minds to serve Malaysia,” he added.

Clinics closed due to poor business
BY LOH FOON FONGandM. KUMAR

PETALING JAYA: As many as 500 clinics run by general practitioners (GPs) were estimated to have closed between 2014 and 2016 due to poor business.

And the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) is worried that the situation may worsen.

Its president Dr Ravindran R. Naidu said a study involving 1,800 GPs revealed widespread concern over the financial sustainability of their clinics.

The findings from Study on the Health Economics of General Practitioners in Malaysia: Trends, Challenges and Moving Forward in 2016 revealed that the expenses for managing GP services had increased over the years due to changes in policies as well as the involvement of the unregulated third party administrators (TPAs), said Dr Ravindran.

The findings showed almost 70% of clinics saw fewer than 30 patients a day, while the operating cost of a clinic in an urban area ranges from RM50,000 to RM60,000 a month.

“With the drop in number of patients and increasing cost, it will eventually lead to the natural death of the GP practice,” said Dr Ravin dran, adding that prior to this, instances of clinics closing down were rare as they would typically be sold or passed on to others to run should the doctors retire or migrate.

Dr Ravindran argued that TPAs must take the main share of the blame as they had removed some patients from GPs.

“They negotiate with companies and take away patients from one cli nic and pass them to other cli nics,” he said, adding that TPAs place restrictions on consultation fees, types of medication prescribed, while charging GPs a fee for every patient they see.

Contributory factors, said Dr Ravindran, include the overproduction of doctors and the introduction of the contract system for those in public service.

He said as the Government would only take 50% of the doctors after a four-year contract, the rest are likely to become GPs, thus saturating the sector even further.

The solution to this, argued Dr Ravindran, is that the Government has to cut down on the number of students studying medicine as there were 5,000 medical students graduating each year.

“The other alternative is to build more hospitals while all medical colleges should have their own hospitals,” he said.

The vice-president of the Medical Practitioners Coalition Association of Malaysia, Dr M. Raj Kumar, agrees that clinics seeing below 30 patients a day were unsustainable.

“A clinic needs at least 30 patients, depending on locality,” he said, adding that operating costs have skyrocketed in recent years such as the various licences needed for the practice, medicine costs that increase every six months, the introduction of GST, and rise in wages for nurses and assistants.

“The poor economy is also forcing the public to visit government clinics,” he said.

Many doctors, especially solo practitioners, end up joining emergency rooms in hospitals, take up locum stints or join pharmaceutical companies.

Time for Malaysians to focus their bulk of energy and resources on nation-building activities


 Time for Malaysians to focus their bulk of energy and resources on nation-building activities

A Bloomberg report claiming that investors are flocking back to Malaysia and focusing on encouraging signs of an economic turnaround is good news to Malaysians.

The fact that the report was posted by two online news portals, Free Malaysia Today (FMT) and The Malaysian Insight (TMI), gives it a more “creditable” perception, unlike news that are carried by the mainstream media.

“The crux of the report is that investors are giving more attention and weight to the encouraging signs of an economic turnaround instead of a scandal (1Malaysia Development Berhad or 1MDB),” Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said: “After a prolonged and continuous protest of 1MDB by those aligned to the Opposition since 2015, it is time to get back on track with the future of Malaysians and Malaysia.

“1MDB aside, life for Malaysians and Malaysia must go on. Is it logical to throw away our future just because of a scandal? Malaysians will settle the 1MDB issue in the coming 14th General Election (GE14) through the ballots.

“Let us not sabotage our economic growth. Let us not cut our nose to spite our face.”


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming GE14, said “it is now extremely crucial for Malaysians to focus the bulk of their energy and resources on fast forwarding business and economy for nation-building and progress”.

“Too much time has been wasted on politicking when there is much more productive work to attend to by everyone. We have to unite, help ride and boost the economic turnaround as reflected by the influx of investors,” he added.


Here are the postings by online news portals FMT and TMI:

"Malaysia shrugs off 1MDB scandal to become second-quarter star

Bloomberg

| June 29, 2017

Stark shift means Prime Minister Najib Razak may call an early election to cement his hold on power.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian assets are back in favor as investors focus on encouraging signs of an economic turnaround instead of a scandal that has touched the top of government and as far as Hollywood.

The stark shift means that Prime Minister Najib Razak, who has weathered political attacks and protests going back to 2015 over allegations involving state-owned 1Malaysia Development Bhd., may call an early election to cement his hold on power.

The ringgit is easily the strongest major Asian currency this quarter, climbing more than twice as much as the next best, the Chinese yuan. Global funds have bought the most Malaysian stocks year-to-date since the same period in 2013, and net inflows to the bond market surged in April and May.

Malaysia has been rocked by far-reaching investigations into investment fund 1MDB, yet double-digit acceleration in the country’s exports has lifted the economy, which grew 5.6% on-year in the first quarter, the most since early 2015.

“With improving macro-economic conditions in Malaysia, we became more positive in mid-2017 for the general Malaysia outlook, although there are still political and corruption concerns,” said Hakan Aksoy, a fund manager at Pioneer Investment Management Ltd., which oversees US$244 billion globally.

“As long as we see improvement on the macro data with the support of global conditions and stable energy prices, we will keep our cautiously positive stance for Malaysia,” London-based Aksoy said.

Overseas investors have purchased US$2.48 billion of Malaysian equities this year, the biggest stock inflow in Southeast Asia. The FTSE Bursa Malaysia index hit its highest in two years on June 16 as technology, banks and construction shares soared.

Samsung Asset Management is buying Malaysian banking, property and construction stocks on bets the government will pump prime ahead of the election, according to Hong Kong-based fund manager Alan Richardson. Meanwhile, it’s paring technology and commodity-related holdings.

“Domestic cyclicals will outperform while global cyclicals will underperform,” Richardson said. This is due to “a combination of global monetary stimulus and domestic early election stimulus.”

The stock market’s gains came as the ringgit rebounded from a 19-year low. After missing out on an earlier rally in regional currencies, it strengthened as growth quickened and concerns eased over an earlier move by the central bank to deter currency speculators.

Bond investors have also returned. Malaysian debt securities drew more than RM16 billion in April and May after recording the longest stretch of outflows in two years. The yield on 10-year notes has fallen 56 basis points to 3.9% since reaching an eight-year high in November.

Still, not everyone is convinced. Nomura Holdings Inc. is underweight on Malaysian stocks, citing expensive valuations and doubts that the growth momentum can be sustained.

“I find it difficult to justify buying Malaysia’s genuine story while ignoring the risks on valuations and also the existing risk that the Malaysian market comes with,” said Mixo Das, Nomura’s Southeast Asian equity strategist in Singapore. “The market probably goes up a bit more till the election, but what happens after it?”

A general election isn’t due until mid-2018, but there’s growing speculation that Najib will call for polls this year with growth holding up and the opposition parties racked by infighting. The premier said earlier this month that preparations for the election were going well.

The economic outlook has helped to counter headlines involving 1MDB, which is at the center of money-laundering allegations and probes in several countries. The US Justice Department is seeking to recover US$1.8 billion in assets it says were bought with funds misappropriated from 1MDB.

Complaints filed in a US court alleged that from 2009 through 2015 more than US$4.5 billion belonging to 1MDB was diverted by officials of the fund and their associates. Najib, who until last year was the chairman of 1MDB’s advisory board, has denied wrongdoing and was cleared by Malaysia’s attorney general.

For Schroder Investment Management Ltd., economic factors trump politics when investing in Malaysian bonds. It also favors the ringgit due to the nation’s positive outlook.

“Key considerations are improving fiscal dynamics, dynamics around central bank policy, attractive economic policies, sensitivity to developed markets and China developments,” said Manu George, a Singapore-based fixed-income director at the firm. - FMT

Investors shrug off 1MDB scandal, flock back to Malaysia

MALAYSIAN assets are back in favour despite the lingering scandal surrounding 1MDB, reports Bloomberg today.

Investors are focusing on signs of an economic turnaround instead of the allegations of money laundering and billions of ringgit siphoned off state investor 1Malaysia Development Bhd.

The US Department of Justice has also filed three civil suits to seize assets allegedly bought with 1MDB money, which has ensnared a Hollywood actor and a model.

The return of investors means that Prime Minister Najib Razak, who has denied any wrongdoing since allegations first surfaced in 2015, might call the 14th general election (GE14) “to cement his hold on power”, the financial portal said.

It also pointed to the ringgit’s performance in the second quarter, which rebounded from a 19-year low, and trading around 4.3 to the dollar.

The economy grew by 5.6% in the first quarter and global funds have bought the most Malaysian stocks since 2013, and net inflows to the bond market surged in April and May.

Overseas investors have purchased US$2.48 billion (RM10.67 billion) of Malaysian equities this year, the biggest stock inflow in Southeast Asia.

Bond investors also poured in more than RM16 billion in April and May.

GE14 must be held by August 2018 and with the opposition in disarray, there are signs Najib will call for an election this year.

The rosy economic outlook has allowed the government to ignore the moves by the DoJ to seize US$1.8 billion in assets bought with funds misappropriated from 1MDB.

Najib was the chairman of 1MDB’s advisory board until last year. Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali cleared Najib of any wrongdoing in relation to 1MDB.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio surrendered an Oscar statue originally won by Marlon Brando to the DoJ while model Miranda Kerr handed over jewellery worth US$8.1 million gifted by Jho Low, a central figure in the scandal. – June 29, 2017. - TMI"

Malaysia’s roads rated world’s third highest killer


 Malaysia’s roads rated world’s third highest killer

Is it any wonder or surprise that Malaysia has the third highest road death rate in the world?

According to the World Health Organisation 2013 data, Malaysia registered a death rate of 23% per 100,000 population!

Four years after, do you think the situation has improved?

“With the roads infested with speedsters, road bullies, Mat Rempits (road thugs) motorcyclists, teenage cycling racers and road users who have no respect for road traffic regulations, what do you expect?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the federal government, namely the Road Transport Department and the police, should take the bulk of the blame for the “road transport mess”.

“They have failed to make an example out of the Mat Rempits and road bullies. Enforcement is lacking and the Mat Rempits get off lightly after every operation of rounding them up,” he added.

Read these for context: http://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/02/bukit-lanjan-stop-illegal-teenage.htmlhttp://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/04/bukit-lanjan-support-awas-to-help.htmlhttp://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/04/bukit-lanjan-more-action-less-talk.html; and http://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/04/bukit-lanjan-malaysians-have-no-fear.html


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said road traffic enforcement “must be carried out without any quarter being given ‘special privileges’ for whatever reason”.

“There must be no political consideration nor political interference when dealing with road bullies and road thugs (Mat Rempits),” he added.
Here’s what online news portal The Malaysian Insider posted on road deaths in Malaysia:

Thailand has the worst record with a death rate of 36.2% followed by South Africa with 25% per 100,000 population.

Apart from Thailand, Malaysia also has the highest death rate in Southeast Asia. Among others, Indonesia registered a 15% death rate and Philippines 11%.

Titled “Riskiest Roads – Here’s another thing investors in emerging markets to worry about: Traffic”, Bloomberg said the average death rate for developed nations is 9.3%, compared with 24.1% for low income and 18.4% for middle income countries.

The report stated that road users in low and middle income countries are more than twice as likely to die in a traffic accident than their counterparts in developed nations. – June 20, 2017.

Toll concessionaires only want to collect tolls, they couldn’t care a less about traffic congestion


 Toll concessionaires only want to collect tolls, they couldn’t care a less about traffic congestion

Thank you very much to all readers of this blog and Facebook friends.

This blog’s posting titled “BUKIT LANJAN: China to operate trackless rail mass transport next year! Wake up Malaysia!” (http://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2017/06/bukit-lanjan-go-for-chinas-new.html) was very well read.

Whether China’s many mass transport concepts, as revealed thus far, are still being designed and researched, tested or ready to be launched, Malaysia will do well to keep track of developments and adopt for implementation if found to be cheaper, suitable and viable.

Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said: “It is incumbent on responsible state and federal governments to go for the cheaper and latest technology in mass transport systems as Monorails, LRTs, MRTs etc are obviously too costly.

“Judging by the thousands of page views registered for this blog post, it is obvious Malaysians are very concerned with Malaysia’s public transport system.

“Traffic congestion is a perennial woe for motorists and buses in the major cities. And at every major festival, the Balik Kampung folk gets caught on the express highways for hours, despite paying tolls,” he added.

“Where is the logic? We pay tolls to endure traffic jams? For example, at the LDP-Penchala Toll Plaza, it’s a daily affair of severe traffic congestion for motorists going to and returning from work.

“Why is that so? One reason that I see is the lack of proper traffic dispersal system by the toll concessionaire Litrak,” he added.


Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said: “It appears Litrak is only interested in toll collection, not delivering service.

“The traffic congestion is obviously due to the bottleneck after the toll plaza. Yet, Litrak is now constructing and adding more toll booths to its existing 14 toll booths (or 14 lanes)!

“Does that make any sense? Traffic on 14 lanes squeezing into three or four lanes! Litrak is just helping to worsen the congestion. It is just interested in toll collection, it couldn’t care a less about the bottleneck problem,” he added.

Syed Razak said: “It is obvious, Malaysians living in the cities, especially those in the Klang Valley, need a really reliable and yet affordable public transport system.

“Only then will Malaysians stop driving on the congested roads and rely on public transport for commuting.”

And here is a reproduction of a conversation found on Facebook on the issue that is worth reading:

"Stephen Tan Ban Cheng We cannot run our trains properly. I don;t think we can do this yet.I am told that more than 30 years ago, we bought a multimillion-ringgit computerised traffic dispersal system and sent our guys to familiarise themselves with the system. They came back. Then came the computerised system. I am told it was never opened because the guys we sent for the study trip came back without knowing how to handle it!

Steven Lee Why are trains elevated or undergrown in cities? Because there is no space on ground level. So where is this trackless train going move on? Can existing roads be widened to add space for the trackless train?

Meng Hooi I think it is possible. Remove all the road centre dividers, create an enclosed lane for the train or whatever to ride unabated, no more the need for buses, more people rely on faster public transport, traffic reduced and traffic jams eased. Possible?

Winston Lopez Yes this system still has to compete with other road users and I don't see how on earth it is going to ease traffic congestion. Perhaps suitable only where there are no other competing form of transportation.

Stephen Tan Ban Cheng (1) Meng Hooi, the trackless technology is still being tested. Once it's ready, our traffic planners will have to take hold of this obvious game changer and replan how our roads are going to be used, even probably having to identify and redesignate the roads in certain identified areas for the use of these trains.

Stephen Tan Ban Cheng (2) What this does show is that China is now wide open in experimenting with new ideas since it has the largest corps of engineers - bigger than even the US itself - and it is even experimenting with other more traditional sources of energy such as dams and solar energy but with upgraded features.

Stephen Tan Ban Cheng (3) China is telling the world it has "chi lai" or woken up - something Napoleon warned the world about, being also fully aware of the Thucycides Trap that came about after the Peloponnesian War pof the 5th Century, Meng Hooi.

Stephen Tan Ban Cheng (4) While China is emerging with the gigantic Road and Belt initiative, another game changer, the US is exhausting itself in sporadic wars in so many countries, losing sight of the "manifest destiny" that it once proclaimed it had. The immediate outlook for world peace can be described as turbulent skies ahead, Meng Hooi."

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.

Here's what international news agency AFP reported and posted by online news portal Free Malaysia Today:

"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.

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.
