com/508600965Throughout history, technological innovations have helped humankind improve their standards of living, beginning with the simple invention of bone tools of prehistoric times, continuing on to and beyond modern air conditioners, automobiles, and super computers. Nowadays, when the rapidness of development and research is so impressive, it is easy to think about the advantages of modern technology. From what I see, I do believe that one of the advantages of modern inventions is saving our priceless time. Theres an English aphorism that support this statement that is, time and tide wait for no one . So, what is the relationship between modern inventions with time? The airplane, for instance, allows people to travel long distances without having any physical strain on their body. Once upon a time, the Muslims that want to perform their haji must travel for few months by a ship to reach Mecca. But now, in couple hours, by taking a flight we can arrive in Mecca and perform our haji comfortably and spend most of our time to perform religious obligations. Some decade and a half ago, humans had to sit in front the huge white monitors, waiting for the web pages to open meanwhile the grass grew a fair few inches outside in their gardens. But broadband changed that completely. The affects of this sudden increase in speed was on a much larger scale then could be imagined. Time saving is just one aspect- huge amounts of data transmission, video and audio streaming, remaining connected 24/7, internet gaming, music, movies... the list just wont end! To end on a shocking note, the worlds fastest broadband connection gives a staggering 40 gigabytes per second, that is downloading a full high-definition DVD in just two seconds. Wow, this is totally terrific! However, we must use all the inventions in correct and proper way to avoid misusage. If we do, I believe that the sixth challenge of Vision 2020 that is to produce advanced and progressive society will not be a mirage. And who knows if one day a Malaysian will be a great inventor making a new history but to let that happen we must work hard for it because the best fish swim near the bottom.

Throughout history, technological innovations have helped humankind improve their standards of living, beginning with the simple invention of bone tools of prehistoric times, continuing on to and beyond modern air conditioners, automobiles, and super computers. Nowadays, when the rapidness of development and research is so impressive, it is easy to think about the advantages of modern technology. Deep bottom from my heart, I believe that one advantage of the modern inventions is improving medical instruments and machines. In the twenty first century, the computer and electronics media playing a vital role in every scientific and medical field. Electronic device which are used in the field of medical and clinical laboratory make easier and providing accurate result for patient. The medical professional are so much dependant on these type product that they cannot think without these product. Medical instruments and equipments become the main pillar in the medical industry.

1Malaysia is intended to provide a free and open forum to discuss the things that matter deeply to us as a Nation. - Najib Razak One of the benefits of the One Malaysia concept is we will be living in peace and harmony. As we know, there are many races in Malaysia, so it is important to unite all Malaysian to live in a peaceful environment. If the Malaysian is united as one through the concept of One Malaysia, we will definitely be known globally. Through this concept, Malaysian will be learning culture of other races. As a result of multiply race in Malaysia, there are many celebration that being celebrate by each race, so this is an opportunity for Malaysian to celebrate together in order to learn other cultures. For example, Government should organize any celebration that can be participated by all races in Malaysia. Finally, this concept also will be stabilizing the political climate in Malaysia. The factor of too many races in one organization could make a chaos to the politics of the country. Each leader of the race trying to defeat their right and vice versa. So, the concept of One Malaysia will be united nation in politics that is very important to the organization of the country.
One Malaysia has been introduced by the sixth Malaysia Prime Minister YAB Dato Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak. Prime Minister chosen One Malaysia as his guide and goal for his premiership. One Malaysia is formed to re-orient Malaysia towards greater unity and success. National philosophy would be the concept of One region and Ultimately One World. One Malaysia is also known as one dream, one people and one nation. The two paramount cardinal principles underline in One Malaysia concept is to inculcate the sprit and values of togetherness and a sense of belonging among Malaysians, regardless of race, religion and creed. Which means that Malaysians will not be moving as separate communities but as one Malaysia. Unity and cooperation in Malaysians with different races is the source of strength to archive concept. One Malaysia request Malaysians with different races and backgrounds unite under one flag. One Malaysia concept is a right formula for national harmony and also towards enhancing regional and global peace World. The new nature of One Malaysia is requiring the Malaysians to live, eat and breaths interdependently. To enhance the performance, the most important is understand the status of the Bahasa Malaysia, respecting the religions and cultures of others. All of these contribute to the pockets of understanding and cooperation in our interaction. The core elements of unity are, firstly the attitude of acceptance among the races and the people, secondly is the principle of nationhood based on the Federal Constitution and the Rukun Negara ( National Idelogy) and thirdly is the social justice and shared values. The government had coined the slogan People First, Performance Now as part of the One Malaysia concept. The theme means that in emphasizing the importance of unity among Malaysians, the government will also give preference to issues regarded as important by the people. The government also stresses on performance and...

When speaking of unity, in Malaysian context, almost instantly the first thing that comes to mind is all races living together hand-in-hand in harmony. As picture perfect as that may be, it is only a portion of what unity is truly all about. The spirit of brethren amongst the many races is merely one speck of the larger spectrum of unity. Unity comes in many other forms the likes of unity in education, cultural appreciation, socio-economy, political, regional, etc. The need for all those sort of unity is true in Malaysias current situation. Malaysia is not only made up of the Malays, Chinese and Indians. It is also made up of the Peninsular and East Malaysia, the rich and the poor, the government and the opposition, the educated and those who are not, the white collars and the blue collars, the young and the old, the urban dwellers and the village folks; and so on and so forth. With that in mind, the 1Malaysia policy must cater to the needs of all sectors of the society and not just focussing on racial relations. Malaysia being a federation of 13 states and 3 federal territories, the

development so far has been rather lopsided with most of the wealth centred on the

of the Education Committee 1956 (otherwise known as the Razak Report).

Page 11/14 Klang Valley conurbation. Many other states register significant number of its population as still living under the poverty line. Although the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) 2006-2010 has already committed to reducing the overall poverty line to below 2.8 percent (from the 2004 estimate of 5.7 percent) and to eradicate hardcore poverty by 2010, this effort must be proportionately distributed to all states including Sabah and Sarawak. In future Malaysia Plans more provision shall be made to states like Sabah, Kelantan and Terengganu; all of which records significant number of poverty rate. To achieve a better distribution of national wealth, the relationship between state and federal governments must also improve. Political differences between the state and federal governments should not hinder the best interests of the people. Issues like oil royalty should not be politicised. Other aids or funding from federal government should not be disrupted just because the state level government has changed. Geographical factor is another factor to consider in achieving national unity as proposed under 1Malaysia. We should not be thinking as Sarawakians or Kelantanese or KLites, instead, we should be thinking and moving forward as Malaysians. The policy should promote greater co-operation between the two regions and improve on the integration of the people. Arts and other cultural aspects of Malaysia should also be enriched by the amalgamation of the myriads of cultures available in Malaysia. Thus far, this kind of togetherness could mostly be seen only during festive (especially the Independence Day celebration) seasons. This should not be the case. Fashion, performance arts, music, etc.; must be able to portray the essence of unity 1Malaysia tries to achieve. The gap between the more affluent urbanites and the seemingly impecunious rural folks also needs attention. The disparity between the two categories of people could be redressed by means of certain revamps in areas of education and economy. The teaching of English for instance, must be more thorough and progressive in rural areas as to allow the students a better footing in competing with urban students. Economic opportunities in villages and other rural areas should also be increased as it will help to raise the living standards of villagers without having to move to the city.
Anders Celsius (1701-1744) was a Swedish professor of astronomy who devised the Celsius thermometer In 1593 Galileo invented the thermometer. X-rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Konrad von Roentgen (1845-1923).

Environmental pollution is the biggest menace to the human race on this planet today. It means adding impurity to environment. The environment consists of earth, water, air, plants and animals. If we pollute them, then the existence of man and nature will be hampered.

It is true that trees are being cut down rapidly. Our earth is becoming warmer. If pollution continues, the day is not far when our earth will be a boiling pan and become a desert. Or it will be covered with sea water causing destruction of mankind. Pure air is always needed for inhaling. If we take pure air, our health improves. On the other hand impure air causes diseases and impairs our health and causes our death. Smoke pollutes the air. It is the root of air pollution. The smoke which is discharged from industries, automobiles and kitchens is the mixture of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane etc. These are all poisonous gases. These cause lung-cancer, tuberculosis etc. which take a heavy toll of life. The glaring incident is the Bhopal gas leak in December 1984. Thousands of the residents of Bhopal died due to lungs problem which was caused by methylamine gas from the Union Carbide Plant. The garbage emitting foul smell, the decaying plants and animals also cause air pollution. Hence the doctors advise the patients having lungs trouble to settle in some rural places because the air of villages is pure and free from population. Then comes sound pollution. The harsh sounds of buses, its, mopeds etc. affect our power of hearing and causes fart trouble. It has been reported that there are two villages named Biraspalli and Devadas Palli near Dum Dum airport m Calcutta where a large number of people have lost their power of hearing. This is because of the frequent sounds of planes coming in and going out of Dum Dum Airport. The evils of sound pollution can be imagined from this example. The water of rivers and seas is being constantly polluted all over the world by various dangerous chemical and biological wastes. Mills and factories discharge very harmful waste waters into many rivers and sea. The water of the Ganges flowing by the side of both Varanashi and Calcutta is extremely polluted and contains all sorts of dangerous bacteria. It is really very strange and laughable that large number of the Indians regard this water as holy. They even drink this water for salvation. There is no doubt that the fish that grow in such waters are poisonous too. Reckless application of chemical fertilizers, insecticides and pesticides pollutes the soil. Vegetables and fruits are quite injurious today, because they contain the poison of insecticides and pesticides. If the air we breathe, the water we drink and the soil which produces our crops, vegetables and fruits, all become more and more impure, then our chances of good health and longevity will be very less and less. Environment pollution is a serious menace to our existence. Realising the danger, we must plant trees in large number to absorb impure air. Impure water from industries can be sent back for purification and then it can be used for irrigation purpose. Our government is well aware of the fact and is taking steps to save environment from pollution. We have also I minister to look after the environment.

Prof. Kenneth J. Rothman, one of the worlds leading epidemiologists, states the following: Within only a few years a substantial proportion of the worlds population has adopted a new technology that involves placing a small radio transmitter up against the head, in some instances for hours a day.[1] The explosion of cell phone use in the last few decades has been astounding: In 1988 there were approximately 500,000 cell phone subscribers in the US, by 1993 this had grown to 13,000,000. [2] By 2006 there were 223 million cell phone users. [3]

Cell phones transmit and receive Radio Frequency (RF) signals in order to communicate. The RF signals from cell phones fall within the microwave part of the electromagnetic spectrum.[4] This radiation is also referred to as microwave radiation or electromagnetic radiation. In short: Cell phones use microwave radiation to communicate.
