Malaysia considering selling stakes in Petronas to states

Industry 4.0, Renewable Energy, Sabah, Sarawak
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is considering selling stakes in energy giant Petronas to states where the company’s oil and gas fields are, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad told Reuters on Tuesday, in a bid to raise funds for the debt-laden government. Such a move may also give states such as Sarawak and Sabah a say in the running of Petronas, the world’s third-largest exporter of liquefied natural gas. Dr Mahathir said the government could not meet a demand made by the states for a quadrupling of the royalties paid by the company to 20 per cent of its profit. “It’s fully owned by the government, it’s up to the government to sell the shares privately not in the market, to states like Sabah and Sarawak,” Dr Mahathir said in an…

Dr M: New key discoveries are made using English

KUALA LUMPUR: Those championing the Malay language should put aside nationalistic pride to allow Science and Mathematics to be taught in English, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. “It will be difficult to find those who can translate newfound knowledge into the national language if we do not know the language in which the knowledge is acquired. “It is my view that nationalistic pride makes some of us more inclined towards maintaining our own language,” the Prime Minister said when answering a question by Ahmad Fahmi Mohamed Fadzil (Pakatan-Lembah Pantai) during Minister’s Question Time in Parliament yesterday. However, Dr Mahathir acknowledged there was a division between those who want the subjects to be taught in English and those who insist the use of the national language. He said the National Education…

Without opening your wallet, you can raise RM1 for Greenpeace Malaysia

Last straw for single-use plastics Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic currently arrive in our oceans, which is equivalent to five grocery bags filled with plastic for every foot of coastline in the world. Single-use plastics, or disposable plastics, are used only once before they are thrown away or recycled. These items include plastic bags, straws, coffee stirrers, soda and water bottles and most food packaging and they end up in our oceans and waterways. We produce roughly 300 million tons of plastic each year and half of it is disposable. Yet, world-wide only 10-13 per cent of plastic items are recycled. Greenpeace Malaysia is lobbying corporations and governments for a policy banning single-use plastic packaging, but movement has been very slow and opposed by the plastics industry.…
