Haze: A Danger to Health
The haze is a constant phenomenon faced by Malaysia and her neighbouringcountries. The haze is basically pollution of atmosphere, which is clogged withpollutants and other substances from forest fires.The haze is a direct effect of forest fire in Kalimantan and other parts of Indonesia due to slash and burn method of farming. The Indonesian authoritiesappear to have no power to control farmers from practising such methods. The hazeis further worsened by open burning practised by most Malaysians. Open-fieldburning of rice straw by the rice planters and open burning of dried leaves andgarbage done by the public are a few examples that done by Malaysian. Many areignorant of the health effects of open burning.During the haze, hospitals and clinic often report a dramatic increase inrespiratory problems, lung infections and asthma attack. The Air Pollution Index(API) usually indicates the hazardous and dangerous levels of pollution during thisperiod. The haze has long-term side effects. Prolonged inhalation of polluted air willresult in serious lung infection which particularly affects the elderly.The government must play its role to reduce the haze treat. It has tocooperate with the Indonesian authorities to stamp out forest fires. The culprits mustbe brought to justice, either through healthy fine or prison sentence. Constantvigilance would ensure the perpetrators do not repeat their offence.The government should also raise the public awareness of the dangers of forest fire. Continuous campaign of the cause, solutions and steps-need-to-be-takento reduce the haze need to be promoted through all types of social media liketelevision, radio, newspaper and even via internet. The authorities should alsoprovide assistance to farmers and introduce more sophisticated forest clearingmethods.
 
In Malaysia, strict laws must be imposed to penalise those who practise openburning. On-going campaigns on the dangers of open burning should be intensified.Individuals too have a role to play. They must participate in every campaign and stopburning. Students can advise their parents not to practice open burning.Every individual has to remember that we do not own the world, but insteadwe lent it from our future generations. We must protect our world so that ougrandchildren woulh have a healthy earth to live. Ahmad Harun bin HashimSeremban, Negeri Sembilan375 words

There is also acampaign that still on to make all the Malaysian becomes a better English learner,which is ‘Enhance Proficiency in Bahasa Malaysia, Strengthen the English’. Englishis the most important and the most useful language in the world today. There aremany reasons why you should study the language properly.First and foremost, English will definitely help you a lot when you want tofurther studies. Almost all books at university are written in English in all subjects.Plus, it is a compulsory for any candidate to pass English with credit before enteringany universities. So, if you are poor in English, you will blow you chance for better education or worse, you are going to have a big problem studying at university.The second reason why you have to study English well is that it will help youto get a job. When you go for a job interview, the interviewer will surely talk to you in
 
English. The first impression you should give in order to success and have the job is,to respond in English fluently. Your chances of getting the job are very slim if youstutter while interviewing.A good command in of English will also help you greatly in your job. If thecompany you work is actively involved in international trade, you have to speak toprospective customers in English. Miscommunication might occur if your English isbad. And this will put your company at risk and you will likely be dismissed if thishappen.Good English will also help you a lot when you travel. Every country in theworld studies English. Even the roadside stall-holders in China speak fairly goodEnglish! At least some of the people you meet on your travels in other countries canunderstand English. The language is certainly practical when you are lost in your trip.Communication problem will not happen if you can converse well in English.Inevitably, English is one of the languages used in any airport in the world in makingannouncement. Knowing English well, therefore, make travelling overseas easier.Besides all these, entertainment is one of the major advantages you willexperience if you good in English. You will enjoy television’s best programmes. Wemust admit that many of the best programmes are produced by the Americans andBritish companies. High self confidence influenced by the programmes will indirectinculcate in yourself when you are fluent in the language. Quality time is worthilyspent if you understand and enjoy the programmes.Based from all the above elaboration, I hope that students will see theimportance and realise how importance the language is for their own future. Although it is a second language in our country, it is now a main language all over the world.544 words
