AL-BIRUNI

Sebelum menjadi seorang ilmuan, Al-BIRUNI memulai mempelajari astronomi, benda-denda langit dan segala rahasianya yang masih sangat tersembunyi sejak masa remajanya. Ia menyebutkan bahwa bumi ini bulat. Hal ini diperkuat dengan pendapat di antaranya, pandangan dari ujung perahu, yaitu pandangan akan tetap sama walaupun perahu itu telah mendekati batas pemandangan pertama.

SOY-BASED INK

Ink made from soy beans is not only better for the environment but better for your company's bottom line as well.

Soy-based ink benefits ;
  • Lower levels of volatile organic compounds than ink made from petroleum, meaning less harmful toxins emitted.
  • Produces brighter and sharper colours because of the innate clearness of the soy bean oil.
  • Makes paper easier to recycle because it's easier to remove in the de-inking process.
  • Prices are comparable to those of petroleum based ink, but less soy-based ink is needed per print job and it reduces paper waste, so you are actually saving money.
Soy-based ink is currently only available for commercial printers, not your office printers or ballpoint pens.
  • Soy beans only use about 0.5 percent of the total energy that is needed to create the ink.
  • About one quarter of commercial printers in the US operate using soy ink.
  • When soy ink reaches its full potential, it will consume 457 million pounds of soy bean oil per year.

KEHIDUPAN itu adalah suatu nikmat bagi orang yang MENGHARGAINYA dan MENYEDARINYA. Kehidupan ini tidak menjanjikan KEBAHAGIAAN sepanjang masa. Kadangkala manusia diasak dengan ujian dan dugaan. Sekiranya lemah, kita akan hanyut mengikut kata hati dan tidak berusaha untuk mencari jalan PENYELESAIAN untuk menyelamatkan diri dan keadaan. Kita sama-sama BERINGAT, jangan ALPA DIRI. Tabah, sabar, cekal dalam apa jua keadaan. Insya-Allah dipermudahkan.

PAIN RELIEVERS...cure ulcers

Until recently, doctors believed that ulcers were caused by stress. Scientists now believe the primary cause of most ulcers is an infection by the Helicobacter pylori bacterium. A chemical sulforaphane found in broccoli and broccoli sprouts appears to kill these bacteria and researchers are undertaking trials to see whether eating more broccolis can help cure ulcers. At least it won't do any harm.

WESTERN NGOs ATTACK ON PALM OIL INDUSTRY

Total area of palm oil plantation is less than 2% of world plantation area. West countries had destroyed their forest and pollute the environments earlier and severe than us!. Destroy or pollute the environments are not right at whatever reasons. The point is, don't just blame the palm oil industry when talk about environments and sustainability. We must share the responsibility and take necessary action to deal with it. Instead of sponsoring Western NGOs to attack palm oil industry, it is better still to use the fund to plant a tree!. Certainly, we have to CHANGE!.

FINDING HAPPINESS IN YOUR FINANCES

  • SHARE YOUR WEALTH - the most satisfying aspect of accumulating great wealth is the ability to make life better for others.
  • BELIEVE AND RECEIVE - first, you must believe it's possible for you to become wealthy, and second, you must be able to receive it by being comfortable with the idea of prosperity.
  • NEVER LOVE MONEY - it's the love of money thats the root of all evil.
  • CHECK OUT ASSOCIATES - before becoming financially tied to someone, spend time with them in three different environments : a relaxing one, a competitive one, and an intellectually stimulating one. then decide whether this is a person you can trust with your assets.

HOW TO IMPROVE KER ?

The following recommendations are given by MPOB panel ;
  • good digester drainage plays an important role in reducing the broken nut in an indirect way as by ensuring that the press cone pressure can be reduced significantly resulting in least broken nuts.
  • the digester bottom plate must be able to extract 70% of the oil and only 30% extraction should be handled by the press.
  • the press cone could be set as low as possible if digester drainage is good.
  • the digester temperature should not be allowed to drop below 90C.
  • nut silo heaters are very useful as in it, the heat penetrates deep into the kernel and it gets dried to a large extent.
  • the bottom section of nut silo heaters are not provided with heaters but cold air will be blown through the ducting instead to allow the shell to cool so that the shell will not be remain elastic as otherwise in the nut cracker, nut will only be crushed but not cracked.
  • the ripple mills are manufactured by many workshops that are not well versed with the basic principles and as a result some of them are badly designed.
  • according to some experts, ripple mill must have 42 rods to be effective as a cracker. the best nut cracker, which is a magnificent machine for nut cracking.

REDHUAN D OON ... lauded as a genius






  • The Star hailed him as one who " leads some of the most savvy and cutting edge open source ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) practioners in the world. "
  • Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, the CEO of MDec , said that " his success proves to the world that Malaysians can not only embrace technology but also lead in the improving and even building new technology. "
  • Oon was once living the high life as a software programmer with a five-figure salary and all the accruements that came with it. Then came the dotcom bust in 2001 and the world as he knew it collapsed. Without a job, he found it difficult to continue his former lifestyle.
  • " That period was actually the biggest blessing in disguise. God made me slow down and appreciate a lot of things that I took for granted like my family and wife. I often wondered why I had to reach rock bottom before I could appreciate my role as a husband and father. I was also during this time that I discovered Compiere and built my virtual empire. "
  • " When you have the love and strength from your family, you can go through everything. "
  • " Being down and out sometimes is a pre-requisite for success. You have to be open to new ideas and must have faith and patience that something will come along. "
  • " I used to wonder whether life was just about money. Surely, there must be more than this ? " His searching brought him to Islam. Islam gave him peace and showed a way of life that was attractive. At 18, he embraced Islam.
  • " When you are gone, you must leave behind a legacy. Money is not a legacy ; self-accomplishment is because it goes beyond money. Self-accomplishment allows for greater success to come to you. I am now making more money than when I was working because I truly love what I do and I get a huge sense of accomplishment at what I am doing. "
  • " You must learn to be truly humble when you are successful and don't let it get to your head. It can disappear overnight. You must always plan for the next thing. "
  • " Failure teaches you what you are passionate about. And it is the passion that will drive you and stop you from throwing in the towel. "
  • " The secret of success is to be driven by passion. And it is this passion that makes you enjoy the good times and cope with the bad. My greatest fear is when the passion for doing something is gone. When you are passionate about something, you will always work to seek it out and perfect it. "
  • " What is important to me is the influence and legacy that I will leave behind. "

TAKING CARE OF RETIREMENT

As life expectancy rises and lifestyles become increasingly sophisticated in a changing world, the concept of retirement and what it entails will need to be redefined as we prepare for the 'third age'.

# currently, one in eight Malaysians are aged 50 and above, but by 2020, the figure
will be one in six.
# Malaysian are aging at a greater speed than people in other counteries.
# the global life expectancy is 68.9 years, up from 50.2 years in 1960.
# improvement in the quality of and accessibility to healthcare, better education and
awareness, improvement in sanitation and hygiene standards, a rise in food safety
and quality standards, as well as rise in environmental standards.
# people who are richer and more educated tend to live longer because they can afford
to eat better food and have better access to medical advances.
# the 'thief of buying power' is one of the biggest risks to savings.
# inflation will affect retirees badly since they will be living on their savings.
# the 'third age' has been referred to as a time in which you can seek fulfilment
and self-actualisation, going from achieving what others required of you to
doing what you want to do. The best is yet to be.
# the second half of life can be richer, more vibrant and meaningful but if we
hold on to old principles and assumptions, we will lose that opportunity, says
Sadler in his book - The Third Age : Principles of Growth and Renewal after
Forty.
# How we will face this third age depends on our ability and preparedness as
individuals and as a nation.

The Asian TSUNAMI

A boat is suspended on a roof of a house some kilometers inland, a grim reminder of the devastating force of the tsunami and earthquake that hit Sumatera on Boxing Day of 2004.

An undersea earthquake with a magnitude of 9.3 occured in the Indian Ocean just north of Simeulue Island, off the western coast of northern Sumatra, at a depth of 30 km. The earthquake triggered a series of devastating tsunamis along coasts bordering the Indian Ocean. In countries hardest hit, such as Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand, waves were recorded up to 30 m.


One of the deadliest natural disasters in history, the tragedy was also known as the Great Sumatra - Andaman earthquake and the Boxing Day Tsunami.

PALM OIL HISTORY


Palm oil (from the African oil palm, Elaeis guineensis) is long recognized in West African countries, and is widely use as a cooking oil. European merchants trading with West Africa occasionally purchased palm oil for use in Europe, but as the oil was bulky and cheap, palm oil remained rare outside West Africa. In the Asante Confederacy, state-owned slaves built large plantations of oil palm trees, while in the neighbouring Kingdom of Dahomey, King Ghezo passed a law in 1856 forbidding his subjects from cutting down oil palms.
Palm oil became a highly sought-after commodity by British traders, for use as an industrial lubricant for the machines of Britain's Industrial Revolution[citation needed]. Palm oil formed the basis of soap products, such as Lever Brothers' (now Unilever) "Sunlight Soap", and the American Palmolive brand.[11] By c. 1870, palm oil constituted the primary export of some West African countries such as Ghana and Nigeria, although this was overtaken by cocoa in the 1880s.[citation needed]
Oil palms were introduced to Java by the Dutch in 1848[12] and Malaysia (then the British colony of Malaya) in 1910 by Scotsman William Sime and English banker Henry Darby. The first few plantations were established and operated by British plantation owners, such as Sime Darby and Boustead. The large plantation companies remained listed in London until the Malaysian government engineered the "Malaysianisation" policy throughout the 1960s and 1970s.[13]
In December 2006, the Malaysian government initiated merger of Sime Darby Berhad, Golden Hope Plantations Berhad and Kumpulan Guthrie Berhad to create the world’s largest listed oil palm plantation player.[14] In a landmark deal valued at RM31 billion, the merger involved the businesses of eight listed companies controlled by Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and the Employees Provident Fund (EPF). A special purpose vehicle, Synergy Drive Sdn Bhd, offered to acquire all the businesses including assets and liabilities of the eight listed companies. With 543,000 hectares of plantation landbank, the merger resulted in the new oil palm plantation entity that could produce 2.5 million tonnes of palm oil or 5% of global production in 2006. A year later, the merger completed and the entity was renamed Sime Darby Berhad.[15]
Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) was formed on 1 July 1956 when the Land Development Act came into force with the main aim of eradicating poverty. Settlers were each allocated 10 acres of land (about 4 hectares) planted either with oil palm or rubber, and given 20 years to pay off the debt for the land.[16] After Malaysia achieve independence in 1957, the government focused on value adding of rubber planting, boosting exports, and alleviating poverty through land schemes. In the 1960s and 1970s, the government encouraged planting of other crops, to cushion the economy when world prices of tin and rubber plunged. Rubber estates gave way to oil palm plantations. In 1961, Felda's first oil palm settlement opened, measuring only 375 hectares of land. As of 2000, 685,520 hectares of the land under Felda's programmes were devoted to oil palms.[16] By 2008, Felda's resettlement broadened to 112,635 families and they work on 853,313 hectares of agriculture land throughout Malaysia. Oil palm planting took up 84% of Felda's plantation landbank.[17]
