Social problem and crimes

Although we will be swarmed by the 2010 Fifa World Cup which is scheduled to take place between 11 June and 11 July 2010 in South Africa, we must not forget about more serious problems faced by our country, the world and the Muslims in Gaza. I am sure this is another tactic by Illuminati to move the attention of the ignorant people who are not aware about their existence and their purpose to rule the world using New World Order.

There are more serious matters that needs our attention although we do have to unwind from being bombarded with various issues and problems faced in our daily lives. For instance, the social problems created by our youths, the crime rate, racism, and not to forget the bombardment of some Muslim nations under the pretext of having weapons of mass destruction that hasn't been found until now.

After reading the pdf in my previous posting in here, we must think of ways so that the Malay teenagers will follow the good example of their Chinese friends who does not indulge in wasteful activities after the school hours.

I think that most Malay parents have a care less attitude towards their children. They don't care about how their teenagers spent their time after school hours. Parents should show good example. They should also discipline their children just like what the Chinese parents do to their children.

From my observation, the Chinese parents will fill up their children's time with useful activities. After school, the children will be sent to piano lessons, tuition classes, having outdoor activities such as camping during the school holidays and many more. When the children are tired at the end of the day after doing all these activities, they will not have the time to waste or indulge in crimes or 'lepaking'.

According to Bukit Aman in a Berita Harian report dated 22nd September 1993, between 1990 and 1992, a total of 37,602 individuals had been arrested for the property crimes and force. From those amount, 9.17% or 3450 are teenagers.

A report by Pemadam (Persatuan Mencegah Dadah Malaysia) exposed the rate of drug abuse from January until December 2005, showed that a total of 22,344 are the Malay addicts, 5,131 are the Chinese addicts and 3,228 are from the Indian race.

Snatch thieves can also bring bad image to our country's tourism as tourists who fell prey to them will have a bad experience as stated by two female British tourists who were traumatised after one of them fell prey to snatch thieves in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday in 2009 Julie and Connie, wrote a letter about their ordeal to The Star, saying that the incident had ruined their holiday and they would not return to Malaysia. (The Star, 11th June 2009)

Selangor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar, (16th January 2009, Utusan Malaysia) had also revealed that about 10,000 individuals were involved in becoming secret members of eight groups involved in various crimes and gangsterism in Selangor.

We have to think of creative ways so that these social problem and crimes indulge by the teenages can be curbed. For instance, the parents have to play an important role in their children's lives. They have to be involved in their children's lives. Get to know their friends, find out what they like to do and support that by letting them indulge in it so that they can get some skills. Send the children to motivational camps.

Academically, the teenagers can indulge in extra-curriculum activities such as joining the computer club, mathematics club, girls scout to enhance their skills. Let them use their time to get skillful in other things than studying so that they can be an all-rounded student.

Since the gangsterism and bullying problem are getting more serious in schools, a legislation in schools could be introduced in school where the police involvement can be used by the school administrators in disciplining the students so that the students will be fearful to indulge in crimes in school. Moreover, parents should not blame the teachers if their children who are bullies or breaking the laws of the school are being punished. They should support the school's decision instead of siding with their children's unruly behaviour since they could have learn it from them.

School counsellors must play their part in giving counselling to the problematic students. During my time in the secondary school, there is such a thing as students being other students counsellors too because surely a student will feel more comfortable in pouring out their problem to someone of their own age (pembimbing rakan sebaya).

The Parents and Teachers Organisation (PIBG) have to play a role as well so that a meeting between parents and teachers have to be made for problematic students so that the parents will know what problems are being faced by their children. The parents should view all advice openly and positively for the betterment of their children.

Aye to the teachings of Mathematics and Science in English

The teaching of Mathematics and Science in English is one of the ways to increase the efficiency of Malaysian students so that they will be familiar with the terms and jargon used in the Science and Technology area. I am all for it and I don't care about what the detractors or minorities of this policy have to say about it.

Let's face the facts, the students in the primary and secondary school will one day move on to studying in the universities. And the real life in the universities are harder where here, the students have to count more on themselves, in terms of studying and finding out the information related to their respective courses. And most of the bulky reference books are mostly in the English language. Now, you will get no help from anyone if your command of the English language is lacking.

The total votes of 100,204 visitors that had cast their votes of whether the people of Malaysia supports or rejects the teaching of Mathematics and Science in Bahasa Malaysia in Che Det's blog here in a box at the far right side showed us that 86% (86360) answered NO to teaching both subjects in Malay and 14% (13844) answered YES.

That means the majority of the people which is 86% of the voters had stated that they support the teaching of Mathematics and Science in English and in a democratic country, the majority rules. We have to ignore the minority which thinks that their voices should be heard because if that were the truth, then we don't need to have an election for the country because the minority will rule in their own alternate universe.

Do you know what an alternate universe is? Many sci-fis potrays it as a universe that is much like the one we are living now, but the circumstances are different. Now, the minorities are very much welcome to go and live there where in that world, they rule. The ones that is propogating this are the same as the Israeli terrorist where a small country like Israel can be terrorists and attack any unarmed volunteers in the international waters where this is a crime and against the human rights.

Just look at the rank of our universities in the world ranking here. We are nearly at the bottom with University Malaya was listed at the number 180 in 2009 compared to 230 in 2008.

Last but not least, I want to pose to you this question. Do you want the policy of teaching Mathematics and Science in English to be abolished because the side effects of this bad decision will not be seen in a day or two but in a few decades? By then the ranking of our universities will be worst to the extend that they won't even be listed at all since Malaysians cannot master the English language and cannot be leaders in the scientific research where most of the scientific research and international conferences will be conducted in the lingua franca?

The English language

World University Ranking for our local universities

Approximately 375 million people speak English as their first language. English today is probably the third largest language by number of native speakers, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

English is the primary language in Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, the British Indian Ocean Territory, the British Virgin Islands, Canada, the Cayman Islands, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Grenada, Guam, Guernsey, Guyana, Ireland , The Isle of Man, Jamaica, Jersey, Montserrat, Nauru, New Zealand, Pitcairn Islands, Saint Helena, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Singapore, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, the Turks and Caicos Islands, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Because English is so widely spoken, it has often been referred to as a "world language", the lingua franca of the modern era, and while it is not an official language in most countries, it is currently the language most often taught as a foreign language.

English is the language most often studied as a foreign language in the European Union, by 89% of schoolchildren, ahead of French at 32%, while the perception of the usefulness of foreign languages amongst Europeans is 68% in favour of English ahead of 25% for French. Among some non-English speaking EU countries, a large percentage of the adult population can converse in English - in particular: 85% in Sweden, 83% in Denmark, 79% in the Netherlands, 66% in Luxembourg and over 50% in Finland, Slovenia, Austria, Belgium, and Germany.

Books, magazines, and newspapers written in English are available in many countries around the world, and English is the most commonly used language in the sciences with Science Citation Index reporting as early as 1997 that 95% of its articles were written in English, even though only half of them came from authors in English-speaking countries.

The impact of the English language globally has sometimes had a large impact on other languages, leading to language shift and even language death and to claims of "English Language Imperialism". English itself is now open to language shift as multiple regional varieties feed back into the language as a whole. For this reason, the 'English language is forever evolving'.

Those who rejects learning the English language and mastering it are doomed to be forever as much use as a handbrake on a canoe because English is the lingua franca of the modern world today.

Later, I will write about the teaching of Mathematics and Science in English (PPSMI) and why I totally support it. Our government should steer ahead with the policy and be damned with all the detractors because this policy will be good for our country in the long run.

To conclude, those who rejects PPSMI like the GMP (Gerakan Memansuhkan PPSMI) are plain idiot. Because of their stupidity, they want others to be stupid too so that we won't understand the propaganda of those who want to colonise us once again.

Hooliganism and Communism of the Opposition MPs

The hooliganism of the opposition MPs proved that they are just like the Israelis terrorist.

Today, a ruckus occured when a fight happened between Datuk Idris Haron (BN-Tangga Batu) with some opposition MPs.

Opposition MPs including Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timur), M. Kulasegaran (DAP-Ipoh Barat), Gobind Singh (DAP-Puchong) and Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin (PAS-Bukit Gantang) with some of their supporters (from NGOs that supports the opposition) were having a discussion on the PSD scholarship issue and entry into the matriculation programme.

The commotion was witnessed by some BN MPs nearby, including Datuk Rosnah Shirlin (BN-Papar) who is the Deputy Health Minister, Datuk Ismail Kassim (BN-Arau), Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah (BN-Lenggng) adn BNBBC deputy chairman Datuk Bung Moktar Radin.

You can read more about it at Ahli Parlimen UMNO & Pakatan bergaduh and here.

"Mereka memaki BN celaka, Umno celaka, jadi saya cuba menasihatkan mereka. Saya menyapa Kula (DAP Ipoh Barat) dan Kit Siang (DAP Ipoh Timur) dan memberitahu mereka bahawa saya ingin mendengar hujah mereka dan mengambil bahagian dalam perbincangan, tetapi ada di antara mereka mula memaki dan menghalau serta menolak saya, katanya kepada wartawan.

The behaviour showed by the opposition MPs are so immature, aggressive and proves that the communism in DAP are still alive and kicking.

Their over-acting is further triggered by our strong and manly minister who had not taken any I.S.A. action towards the people that may harm our national security by their countless provocation.
