Why are the three ministries non-responsive to global evolution of car technology?

Why are the three ministries non-responsive to global evolution of car technology?
If you think still think self-driving electric vehicles (EVs) are a fiction of one’s imagination or a Hollywood science fiction, think again.

In a German town called Bad Birnbach, an autonomous shuttle bus is already in operation to serve the Bavarian townsfolk.

“Now, isn’t that nice and sweet, no thick black smoke emissions belching from … In Malaysia, the authorities are still protecting Petronas, denying investors and businesses the approval to bring in EVs,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said the global car technology was already zooming far ahead with manufacturers racing to perfect Artificial Intelligence (AI) controlled EVs for commercial sales and marketing.

“Here, we (Malaysians) are left in the dark by the federal government, namely the Transport Ministry. What is the policy for green technology?

“Why are we not being prepared for a green motoring revolution? Why are EVs …

Fierce drive to take lead in electric car and automated driving technologies

Fierce drive to take lead in electric car and automated driving technologies
These days, it’s difficult and confusing to keep up with international news agency reports on the global automobile industry and automated driving technology developments.

They are pumping up news coverage on the industry due to the fierce competition by car manufacturers to be the first to viably mass produce electric and automated driving vehicles.

“Today they report this, and tomorrow they report that. Who is really on the lead in the evolution and transformation of the global car industry?” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“It’s a good confusion and competition because consumers are guaranteed to get the best out of this,” he added.

Syed Razak said: “Malaysians are really left in the dark in the motoring future in their country.

“The Proton-Geely joint-venture (JV) is not telling or revealing much about their direction and plans.

“The federal government is also not telling much about its po…

It’s a buyers’ market! House buyers must consolidate by refraining from ‘desperate buys’ to push prices lower

It’s a buyers’ market! House buyers must consolidate by refraining from ‘desperate buys’ to push prices lower
It is heartening and relieving to read online news portal Free Malaysia Today (FMT)’s report titled “Price dip for landed homes in old Selangor housing estates”.

Pulse Of Bukit Lanjan hopes that it is the beginning of better times to come for house buyers in every segment of the property market, both new and old

“It shows Malaysian house buyers can win the ‘battle’ with property developers if they refrain from booking or buying over-priced units,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“It is about time that Malaysian house buyers get the better of property developers … get a better deal from property developers who over price their products to reap humongous profits.

“If Malaysians continue with their discipline, show no desperation to buy, property developers will be forced to lower prices of their properties,” he added.

Syed Razak urged Malaysians to step up the p…

EIS good for workers? Let’s just wait and see!

EIS good for workers? Let’s just wait and see!
Finally the federal government has pioneered a bill passed by Parliament to be gazetted as law for the benefit of workers who lose their jobs.

Whether the Employment Insurance System (EIS) Bill and law will really benefit workers, Malaysians will just have to “wait and see”.

“Like all else and as usual, whatever laws and regulations that are implemented in Malaysia, there is always the risk of foul ups that spoil the soup,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“They say there is no free lunch. So, there must be a catch or loop hole somewhere to be exploited by profiteers. The compensation money just don’t drop from the sky.

“Who will profit from the EIS? Also, the Little Napoleans in the civil system will surely feature prominently in the operations, especially in the approval of compensations,” he added.

Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the coming 14th General Election (GE14), said the EIS …

Baby dumping woes – shame on both state and federal governments!

Baby dumping woes – shame on both state and federal governments!
Pulse Of Bukit Lanjan is absolutely not surprised that baby dumping cases in Malaysia have been rising steadily since 2013.

This issue of humanitarian concern was raised twice by this blog last December and March.

Read these for context:

Ø https://bukitlanjan.blogspot.my/2016/12/bukit-lanjan-lets-have-baby-hatches-in.html (Let’s have baby hatches in all hospitals and clinics)

“Since then, both state and federal governments have done nothing in response to the urgent need to nip the problem in the bud,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

He said not only should the federal government allocate more funds to help stem the problem, “it must also use legislative powers to compel all clinics and hospitals, both private and public, to set up baby hatches to save the…

European desperados expose their selfish interests in the global automobile industry

European desperados expose their selfish interests in the global automobile industry
The international news agency Reuters report titled “Electric car focus risks handing jobs to China, EU auto suppliers warn” shows clearly how selfish and protective the Europeans can get of their interests.

In doing so, the Europeans have exposed themselves as hypocrites. Their interests are not for the advancement of the global car technology, environment or for level business playing fields.

“Sadly, such ‘educated’ communities now appear to embrace the attitude ‘If we can’t beat them, we sabotage, protest, etc’,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“That’s exactly what they are doing and saying, as the report suggests. Is it a valid reason for the European car parts manufacturers to call for a halt in electric car technology in Europe.

“They are now asking car manufacturers to look at other ways of cutting vehicle emissions such as more efficient (internal) combustion engines and synt…

真相崩溃 - 2016年有4万名大马人失业,2017年6个月失业有 1万8千人 (The truth comes crashing down – 40,000 Malaysians lost their jobs in 2016, 18,000 in six months 2017)

真相崩溃 - 2016年有4万名大马人失业,2017年6个月失业有 1万8千人 (The truth comes crashing down – 40,000 Malaysians lost their jobs in 2016, 18,000 in six months 2017)
新加坡ANN新闻网报道说,去年有4万名大马人失业,2017上半年又1万8千人失业。


是的。 大马人正在照镜子自问:在隧道尽头有经济改善和更多工作岗位的曙光吗?

民政党副议长赛阿都拉萨说:“无论分析师和政治家可能会说什么,还是转述新闻来为自己的主人或议程提供服务,真相是不会被永远隐藏起来的。”

他说,无论如何尝试画一个国家经济的积极图画,“这只是时间的问题,人民将受严重打击”。

“而且失去工作也是一样困难,”他补充说。

赛阿都拉萨在国内和全球经济疲软和经济衰退这样艰难的挑战下表示:“个人能做得不是很多,但是要更加努力地寻找就业机会和寻求微型商业机会度过困难时期”。

“创新的小型企业如果努力取得成功,可以大举成长。 关键词是双重工作,不要懒惰,“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)协调人说,ANN报道不是大马人唯一的噩梦。 

这两个新闻头条也应该令人担忧:

Ø大马企业的商业信心连续三季度有所改善

Ø 世界经济,市场进入更危险的时期

“如果大马企业的商业信心真的在改善,为什么去年以来,成千上万的大马人失业?

“我们人民和政府,是否接受现实和积极响应,为艰苦的时刻做准备,采取谨慎措施来缓解社会经济压力?

“还是我们只是自爽(自我满足)?”他问。

以下是三个摘要的新闻报道:

“震荡数据 – 納吉的经济发展报告:2016年4万大马人被裁员,截至今年6月份接近1万8千人 

政治 2017年10月10日





吉隆坡 :据劳工部的数据显示,2016年大马近4万名员工被裁员。

截至今年6月,已有1万7798名工人被裁员。

然而,这些数字只是冰山一角。

相信在这段时间内失业的大马人的实际人数明显偏高,因为许多中小型企业和微型企业都不知道要向劳工部报告裁员的条件。

这数十千名受影响的工人中有一位是50岁的吴志成 (释音),被裁员之前他是在沙亚南的电缆制造工厂工作,还有超过100多名其他工作人员和较低的行政人员。

吴氏29年的工作期间里,公司一直处于问题之中,管理层也发生…

More bad news for mainstream print media in Malaysia
The mainstream media in Malaysia are still struggling to accept reality and embrace the digital media, and a new wave of technology is about to strike globally.

And, like the online news portal The Malaysian Insight (TMI) news titled “Mainstream media caused its own downfall, say analysts” and “BN in trouble with falling newspaper circulation, says editor”, the mainstream media in Malaysia has been resting in their laurels for far too long – since 2008 or the 12th General Election (GE12).

“They failed to face reality and to adapt and innovate with providing content that is acceptable to majority of Malaysians. Their folly has resulted in losing their clout as news providers, as evidenced by a free fall in circulation sales,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.

“And in continuing with their ‘business as usual attitude’, the mainstream media has lost their credibility and confidence of Malaysian readers.

“This is why Mal…
