A parliamentary democracy with a constitutional monarch in southeast Asia, consisting of 11 states (West Malaysia) on the Malay Peninsula and two states (East Malaysia) on the island of BORNEO. It is also called the Federation of Malaysia. Its capital is Kuala Lumpur. Before 1963 it was the Union of Malaya. It reorganized in 1948 as the Federation of Malaya, becoming independent from British Malaya in 1957 and becoming Malaysia in 1963 as a federation of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak, and Singapore (which seceded in 1965). The form Malay- probably derives from the Tamil malay, mountain, with reference to its geography.

Dietary intake and practices in the Hong Kong Chinese population. (1/1776)

OBJECTIVES: To examine dietary intake and practices of the adult Hong Kong Chinese population to provide a basis for future public health recommendations with regard to prevention of certain chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and osteoporosis. PARTICIPANTS: Age and sex stratified random sample of the Hong Kong Chinese population aged 25 to 74 years (500 men, 510 women). METHOD: A food frequency method over a one week period was used for nutrient quantification, and a separate questionnaire was used for assessment of dietary habits. Information was obtained by interview. RESULTS: Men had higher intakes of energy and higher nutrient density of vitamin D, monounsaturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but lower nutrient density of protein, many vitamins, calcium, iron, copper, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. There was an age related decrease in energy intake and other nutrients except for vitamin C, sodium, potassium, and percentage of total calorie from carbohydrate, which all increased with age. Approximately 50% of the population had a cholesterol intake of < or = 300 mg; 60% had a fat intake < or = 30% of total energy; and 85% had a percentage of energy from saturated fats < or = 10%; criteria considered desirable for cardiovascular health. Seventy eight per cent of the population had sodium intake values in the range shown to be associated with the age related rise in blood pressure with age. Mean calcium intake was lower than the FAO/WHO recommendations. The awareness of the value of wholemeal bread and polyunsaturated fat spreads was lower in this population compared with that in Australia. There was a marked difference in types of cooking oil compared with Singaporeans, the latter using more coconut/palm/mixed vegetable oils. CONCLUSION: Although the current intake pattern for cardiovascular health for fat, saturated fatty acid, and cholesterol fall within the recommended range for over 50% of the population, follow up surveys to monitor the pattern would be needed. Decreasing salt consumption, increasing calcium intake, and increasing the awareness of the health value of fibre may all be beneficial in the context of chronic disease prevention.  (+info)

Lead exposure in the lead-acid storage battery manufacturing and PVC compounding industries. (2/1776)

This study was conducted as part of the Human Exposure Assessment Location (HEAL) Project which comes under the United Nations Environment Programme/World Health Organisation (UNEP/WHO) Global environmental Monitoring System (GEMS). The objective of the study was to evaluate workers' exposure to lead in industries with the highest exposure. All subjects were interviewed about their occupational and smoking histories, the use of personal protective equipment and personal hygiene. The contribution of a dietary source of lead intake from specified foods known to contain lead locally and personal air sampling for lead were assessed. A total of 61 workers from two PVC compounding and 50 workers from two lead acid battery manufacturing plants were studied together with 111 matched controls. In the PVC compounding plants the mean lead-in-air level was 0.0357 mg/m3, with the highest levels occurring during the pouring and mixing operations. This was lower than the mean lead-in-air level of 0.0886 mg/m3 in the lead battery manufacturing plants where the highest exposure was in the loading of lead ingots into milling machines. Workers in lead battery manufacturing had significantly higher mean blood lead than the PVC workers (means, 32.51 and 23.91 mcg/100 ml respectively), but there was poor correlation with lead-in-air levels. Among the lead workers, the Malays had significantly higher blood lead levels than the Chinese (mean blood levels were 33.03 and 25.35 mcg/100 ml respectively) although there was no significant difference between the two ethnic groups in the control group. There were no significant differences between the exposed and control group in terms of dietary intake of specified local foods known to contain lead. However, Malays consumed significantly more fish than the Chinese did. There were no ethnic differences in the hours of overtime work, number of years of exposure, usage of gloves and respirators and smoking habits. Among the Malays, 94.3% eat with their hands compared with 9.2% of the Chinese. Workers who ate with bare hands at least once a week had higher blood lead levels after adjusting for lead-in-air levels (mean blood lead was 30.2 and 26.4 mcg/100 ml respectively). The study indicated that the higher blood lead levels observed in the Malay workers might have been due to their higher exposure and eating with bare hands.  (+info)

Incidence of eyelid cancers in Singapore from 1968 to 1995. (3/1776)

AIM: To describe the epidemiological characteristics of patients with eyelid malignancies seen in all hospitals in Singapore from 1968 to 1995. METHOD: The Singapore Cancer Registry has been collecting epidemiological data of all cancers seen in Singapore since 1968. The data of all cases of Singapore residents with eyelid cancers diagnosed from 1968 to 1995 (ICD-9, sites 172.1 and 173.1) were retrieved for analysis. RESULTS: There were 162 male patients (49.8%) and 163 females (50.2%). The median age at diagnosis was 63 years in males and 66 years in females. The average annual age standardised incidence rate among male Singapore residents was 6.5 per million and 5.5 per million among female Singapore residents. Between 1993 and 1995, the average annual rate for females was 6.8 per million, compared with 3.1 per million between 1968 and 1972. The most common cancer was basal cell carcinoma (84.0%), followed by sebaceous adenocarcinoma (10.2%) and squamous cell carcinoma (3.4%). CONCLUSION: The annual age standardised incidence for male residents has remained relatively stable. The incidence for female residents has shown a steady increase over the past 28 years. The incidence for males is generally higher than that for females. These expanded epidemiological characteristics may serve to provide a foundation to monitor future disease patterns and to promote further research into the aetiology of these cancers.  (+info)

Outbreak of Hendra-like virus--Malaysia and Singapore, 1998-1999. (4/1776)

During September 29, 1998-April 4, 1999, 229 cases of febrile encephalitis (111 [48%] fatal) were reported to the Malaysian Ministry of Health (MOH). During March 13-19, 1999, nine cases of similar encephalitic illnesses (one fatal) and two cases of respiratory illness occurred among abattoir workers in Singapore. Tissue culture isolation identified a previously unknown infectious agent from ill patients. This report summarizes the preliminary epidemiologic and laboratory investigations of these cases, which indicate that a previously unrecognized paramyxovirus related to, but distinct from, the Australian Hendra virus is associated with this outbreak.  (+info)

Prevalence of diabetes and ethnic differences in cardiovascular risk factors. The 1992 Singapore National Health Survey. (5/1776)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the 1992 Singapore National Health Survey was to determine the current distribution of major noncommunicable diseases and their risk factors, including the prevalence of diabetes and dyslipidemia, in Singapore. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: A combination of disproportionate stratified sampling and systematic sampling were used to select the sample for the survey. The final number of respondents was 3,568, giving a response rate of 72.6%. All subjects fasted for 10 h and were given a 75-g glucose load, except those known to have diabetes. Blood was taken before and 2 h after the glucose load. Diagnosis of diabetes was based on 2-h glucose alone. RESULTS: The age-standardized prevalence of diabetes in Singapore residents aged 18-69 years was 8.4%, with more than half (58.5%) previously undiagnosed. Prevalence of diabetes was high across all three ethnic groups. The prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance was 16.1%, that of hypertension was 6.5%, and 19.0% were regular smokers. The total cholesterol (mean +/- SD) of nondiabetic Singaporeans was 5.18 +/- 1.02 mmol/l; 47.9% had cholesterol > 5.2 mmol/l, while 15.4% had levels > 6.3 mmol/l. Mean LDL cholesterol was 3.31 +/- 0.89 mmol/l; HDL cholesterol was 1.30 +/- 0.32 mmol/l, and triglyceride was 1.23 +/- 0.82 mmol/l. CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence of diabetes was high across all three ethnic groups. Ethnic differences in prevalence of diabetes, insulin resistance, central obesity, hypertension, smoking, and lipid profile could explain the differential coronary heart disease rates in the three major ethnic groups in Singapore.  (+info)

Isolate resistance of Blastocystis hominis to metronidazole. (6/1776)

Isolates of Blastocystis hominis from infected immigrant workers from Indonesia, Bangladesh and infected individuals from Singapore and Malaysia were assessed for growth pattern and degree of resistance to different concentrations of metronidazole. Viability of the cells was assessed using eosin-brillian cresyl blue which stained viable cells green and nonviable cells red. The Bangladeshi and Singaporean isolates were nonviable even at the lowest concentration of 0.01 mg/ml, whereas 40% of the initial inoculum of parasites from the Indonesian isolate at day one were still viable in cultures with 1.0 mg/ml metronidazole. The study shows that isolates of B. hominis of different geographical origin have different levels of resistance to metronidazole. The search for more effective drugs to eliminate th parasite appears inevitable, especially since surviving parasites from metronidazole cultures show greater ability to multiply in subcultures than controls.  (+info)

Update: outbreak of Nipah virus--Malaysia and Singapore, 1999. (7/1776)

During March 1999, health officials in Malaysia and Singapore, in collaboration with Australian researchers and CDC, investigated reports of febrile encephalitic and respiratory illnesses among workers who had exposure to pigs. A previously unrecognized paramyxovirus (formerly known as Hendra-like virus), now called Nipah virus, was implicated by laboratory testing in many of these cases. Febrile encephalitis continues to be reported in Malaysia but has decreased coincident with mass culling of pigs in outbreak areas. No new cases of febrile illness associated with Nipah virus infection have been identified in Singapore since March 19, 1999, when abattoirs were closed. This report summarizes interim findings from ongoing epidemiologic and laboratory investigations in Malaysia and Singapore.  (+info)

Contribution of kasA analysis to detection of isoniazid-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Singapore. (8/1776)

Genotypic analysis of resistance to isoniazid (INH) in Mycobacterium tuberculosis is complex due to the various genes potentially involved. Mutations in ketoacyl acyl carrier protein synthase (encoded by kasA) were present in 16 of 160 (10%) INH-resistant isolates (R121K [n = 1], G269S [n = 3], G312S [n = 11], G387D [n = 1]). However, G312S was also present in 6 of 32 (19%) susceptible strains. kasA analysis contributed marginally to the performance of INH genotypic testing in Singapore. The significance of kasA polymorphisms in INH resistance should be carefully established.  (+info)

SINGAPORE, October 11, 2017: Konica Minolta, an integral value provider with customer-centric solutions, and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), one of Singapores largest multi-disciplinary hospitals, have collaborated on the investigation of automatic wound (pressure ulcer) measurement and monitoring solution. The clinical study result of using a non-contact hand-held wound measurement device (HWMD) was updated at the recent Singapore Health & Biomedical Congress 2017.. Effective wound management is challenging. Variety of wounds can occur and are treated by multiple healthcare professionals across settings. Wound imaging along with objective and precise measurements are paramount to improve prognostic values of healing and treatment efficacy (Chang et al. 2011, Hammond 2011). Current practice may lack accuracy and consistency that are dependent on users, time consuming and requires direct contact with wound beds (Hammond 2014, Langemo et al 2015).. The HWMD allows clinicians to capture ...
In the 1820s, Singapore became established as a successful trading centre. Large numbers of immigrants came to the colony, hoping to make their fortune here. Many of these immigrants were poor and destitute, and malnutrition was common; it was estimated that about 100 immigrants died each year from starvation.[citation needed] The British government set up a paupers hospital in the 1820s but it closed in the 1830s because of insufficient funds. The government then suggested that the better-off members of each community take care of their own poor. Subsequently, some of the more benevolent members of the community responded. One such person was Tan Tock Seng, the acting Kapitan China of Singapore, a successful businessman and the citys first Asian Justice of Peace, who offered $5,000 for the construction of Singapores first privately funded hospital.[1] The foundation stone of the hospital, then called Chinese Pauper Hospital, was laid on 25 May 1844 on Pearls Hill.[1] The building was ...

Background: Sugar-sweetened carbonated beverages (called soft drinks) and juices, which have a high glycemic load relative to other foods and beverages, have been hypothesized as pancreatic cancer risk factors. However, data thus far are scarce, especially from non-European descent populations. We investigated whether higher consumption of soft drinks and juice increases the risk of pancreatic cancer in Chinese men and women.. Methods: A prospective cohort analysis was done to examine the association between soft drink and juice consumption and the risk of pancreatic cancer in 60,524 participants of the Singapore Chinese Health Study with up to 14 years of follow-up. Information on consumption of soft drinks, juice, and other dietary items, as well as lifestyle and environmental exposures, was collected through in-person interviews at recruitment. Pancreatic cancer cases and deaths were ascertained by record linkage of the cohort database with records of population-based Singapore Cancer ...

According to the Employment Situation First Quarter 2015 report - the number of unemployed Singaporeans (seasonally adjusted) in March was 50,200.. All-time low of only 53.3% Singaporeans in the workforce?. Since the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for Singaporeans was 2.6% - does it mean that the number of Singaporeans in the workforce was about 1,930,769 (50,200 divided by 0.026)?. So, does it mean that the percentage of Singaporeans was 53.3% (1,930,769 Singaporeans divided by 3,624,200 total workforce)?. Is this an all-time low for the percentage of Singaporeans in the workforce?. With a total of 153,923 new citizens granted from 2007 to 2014 - what percentage of the 53.3% Singaporeans in the workforce are true-blue Singaporeans?.

Title: HLA and Non-HLA Genes in Ankylosing Spondylitis and Seronegative Spondyloarthritis in Asia. VOLUME: 4 ISSUE: 2. Author(s):Hwee Siew Howe. Affiliation:Department of Rheumatology,Allergy and Immunology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, 11 Jalan Tan Tock Seng, Singapore 308433.. Abstract: Genetic susceptibility to ankylosing spondylitis, the prototype of the seronegative spondyloarthropathies is strongly associated with the major histocompatibility antigen HLA-B27. However besides HLA-B27, there are other genes, both MHC and non-MHC, that predispose to susceptibility and severity of disease. Studies on the genetic epidemiology of these diseases in Asia have shown similar findings to those elsewhere; with most showing strong association of HLA-B27 with ankylosing spondylitis, no difference in HLA B27 subtypes between patients and controls, some association of IL-1 gene cluster, TNF and LMP polymorphisms with ankylosing spondylitis, association of HLADR8 with acute anterior uveitis, and no association ...

The Ministry of Health (MOH) and National Environment Agency (NEA) have been informed of a case of Zika virus infection. The patient is a 47-year-old female Malaysian who resides at Block 102 Aljunied Crescent and works in Singapore. As she had not travelled to Zika-affected areas recently, she was likely to have been infected in Singapore.. 2. The patient had developed fever, rash and conjunctivitis from 25 August. She visited a general practitioner (GP) on 26 August and was referred to the Communicable Diseases Centre (CDC) at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where she was tested positive for Zika on 27 August. She has since been hospitalised for observation at the CDC. The patient is currently well and recovering.. 3. With the presence of Zika in our region and the volume of travel by Singaporeans as well as tourists, it is inevitable that there will be imported cases of Zika into Singapore. There is also risk of subsequent local transmission, as the Aedes mosquito vector is present here. While MOH ...
Aims: To describe the prevalence and causes of decreased visual acuity (VA) in Singaporean Chinese children. Methods: A population-based survey of Singaporean Chinese children aged 6 to 72 months was conducted. Participants underwent an orthoptic evaluation, cycloplegic refraction and biometric measurements. A sub-group of children aged 30 to 72 months with presenting logMAR VA were included in this analysis. Retesting was performed on the same day or another day by predefined criteria with best refractive correction. Decreased VA was defined as worse than 20/50 (0.4 logMAR) for ages 30 to 47 months and worse than 20/40 (0.3 logMAR) for ages 48 to 72 months. Results: The study examined 3009 children (participation rate 72.3%) of which 2017 children aged 30 to 72 months were eligible for VA testing and completed in 1684 (83.5%). In children aged 30-47 months, the prevalence of decreased presenting VA was 2.1%, and in children 48-72 months, it was 2.05%, with no significant difference between boys ...

SINGAPORE: A more precise surgery method is now available to those suffering from stomach cancer. Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) has become the first in Southeast Asia to perform the robotic gastrectomy procedure. Stomach cancer is the fifth most common cancer in Singapore, and doctors say that stomach cancer is largely triggered by poor lifestyle choices, such as overeating or eating too much barbequed food. Only a small percentage is caused by genetic factors. 75-year-old Loh Ah Mye was diagnosed with stage one stomach cancer last month. But due to her age, doctors found it risky for her to go through the usual key hole surgery to remove cancer cells. She opted to undergo the robotic gastrectomy procedure, and became the first person in Southeast Asia to do so. The procedure is commonly performed in Korea and Japan, where the incidence of stomach cancer is high. Madam Loh... Full article: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews... ...
A severe bed crunch at Singapores public hospitals has forced several of them into taking some extraordinary measures.. Changi General Hospital (CGH), which has 800 beds, started housing patients waiting for beds in a large air-conditioned tent this week.. The 1,200-bed Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), meanwhile, has been forced to set up 49 beds along the corridors of its wards to cope with the demand.. Together with Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH), they have also resorted to sending patients to Alexandra Hospital, one of the few public hospitals here with spare beds.. Having taken in more than 900 patients from other hospitals between last September and December, it continues to admit around 11 such patients each day.. Dr Lee Chien Earn, CGHs chief executive officer, told The Straits Times: Our bed occupancy rate has crossed 100 per cent for certain periods over the past month and some patients have waited more than 24 hours for an inpatient bed.. This is despite CGH already renting a ward ...
We work closely with our colleagues in the Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Radiology departments to provide holistic multi-disciplinary care for our cancer patients. These include regular multi-disciplinary tumour board and uro-radiology case discussions for our patients.. In addition, we offer both open and minimally-invasive surgical options for all urological cancers. We were the first to perform radical perineal prostatectomy in Singapore in 1996 and also performed the first laparoscopic radical nephrectomy in the country in 2002 and the first laparoscopic radical prostatectomy in 2003. We launched our robotic surgery programme in 2010 and had completed 100 successful robotic surgeries by 2012. Today, our robotic radical prostatectomy and partial nephrectomy programmes are well established. We are also a referral centre for retroperitoneal lymph node dissection for men with testicular cancer. Finally, we regularly collaborate with our General Surgery colleagues and gynaecologists ...
This proportion appears to be very big, and it is, but its not clear how much virus is needed to actually spread flu, so the lower number is more reliable, he said.. Dr. David C. Lye reported on 70 patients treated at Tan Tock Seng Hospital in Singapore. Using a very sensitive test to detect virus in the nose or throat, he found that 80 percent had it five days after symptoms began, and 40 percent seven days after. Some still harbored virus as long as 16 days later. How soon they started on antiviral medicines such as Tamiflu made a difference in how much virus was found, but not whether virus was present at all.. A third report came from Dr. Guillermo Ruiz-Palacios of the National Institutes of Medical Science and Nutrition in Mexico, where the first cases of swine flu were detected.. Infected people shed the virus for a very, very long time, often for more than a week after the start of symptoms, he told the conference. This was especially true of obese people, and patients who started on ...

With over 1000 kidney transplant recipients and living donors under its follow-up, the renal transplant program is equipped with the state of the art facilities and multidisciplinary staff to provide advanced and team-based care, putting patients at the hearts of all we do. The renal transplant program also provides comprehensive post-graduate transplant training to healthcare ...
Only a minority of probable SARS cases caused transmission. We assess if any epidemiological or clinical factors in SARS index patients were associated with increased probability of transmission. We used epidemiological and clinical data on probable SARS patients admitted to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Using a case-control approach, index patients who had probable SARS who subsequently transmitted the disease to at least one other patient were analysed as cases against patients with no transmission as controls, using multivariate logistic regression analysis. 98 index patients were available for analysis (22 with transmission, 76 with no transmission). Covariates positively associated with transmission in univariate analysis at p | 0.05 included delay to isolation (Day 7 of illness or later), admission to a non-isolation facility, pre-existing chronic respiratory disease and immunosuppressive disease, need for oxygen, shortness of breath, vomiting, and higher lactate dehydrogenase levels and higher

By the time patients are referred to Dr Ho, they are usually su ering from hearing loss that is bad enough to cause disability.. This is why it is important for everyone, especially seniors aged 60 and above, to go for regular health screenings. Project Silver Screen, which is a collaboration between Ministry of Health and Temasek Foundation, is a screening programme that targets this group. These screenings are held at residents committee centres, and community centres and clubs around the island to ensure the seniors eyes, ears and mouth are in good health.. While most types of hearing loss are not reversible, they can be managed by using hearing aids. Dr Ho explains that hearing is a sophisticated function of the body. The hearing process involves many parts of the ear working together to convert sound waves into electrical signals the brain understands and interprets as sounds.. Patients should give themselves time to get used to the hearing aids, and allow the brain to relearn what sounds ...

Between 1845 and 1939, Singapore used the Straits dollar.[3] This was replaced by the Malayan dollar,[3] and, from 1953, the Malaya and British Borneo dollar, which were issued by the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Malaya and British Borneo.[3]. Singapore continued to use the common currency upon joining Malaysia in 1963,[3] but only two years after Singapores expulsion and independence from Malaysia in 1965, the monetary union between Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei broke down.[3] Singapore established the Board of Commissioners of Currency, Singapore, on 7 April 1967[4] and issued its first coins and notes.[3] Nevertheless, the Singapore dollar was exchangeable at par with the Malaysian ringgit until 1973,[3] and interchangeability with the Brunei dollar is still maintained.[3]. Initially, the Singaporean dollar was pegged to the British pound sterling at a rate of S$60 = £7. This peg lasted until the demise of the Sterling Area due to the Nixon Shock in the early 1970s, after which the ...
In 1946, Singapore became a British Crown Colony. However, the communist insurgency in Malaya of 1948 put Singapore in a state of emergency for 12 years. There was a rise of nationalism during the 1950s as the merchant classes wanted to have a say in government and in 1959 Singapore was granted self-government under the leadership of Lee Kuan Yew. In 1963 Singapore merged with Federated Malaya and the Borneo states of Sarawak and North Borneo (Sabah) to create Malaysia. The third Borneo state of Brunei opted for independence. This merger was actively opposed by the neighboring states of Indonesia and the Philippines. Singapore was particularly hard hit by the loss of its Indonesian barter trade. Indonesian commandos conducted armed raids into Sabah and Sarawak, and Singaporean fishing boats were seized by Indonesian gunboats. Indonesian terrorists bombed the Ambassador Hotel on September 24, beginning a year of terrorism and propaganda aimed at creating communal unrest in Singapore. Singapore as ...

Purpose: To describe the prevalence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) and its risk factors in Asian Indians - comparative study between Singapore and India. Methods: The Singapore Indian Eye (SINDI) Study is a population-based survey of 3,400 Indians aged between 40 to 80 years staying in urban Singapore. A comprehensive ophthalmic examination, standardized interviews and laboratory blood tests were performed. Digital retinal fundus photographs were assessed for the presence of RVO following the definitions used in the Blue Mountains Eye Study. The results were compared to the Central Indian Eye and Medical Study (CIEMS), a population-based study performed in rural Central India comprising 3424 Indians aged 30 years and above.. Results: A total of 3,173 persons [mean age 57.8 ± (SD) 10.1 years and 50.2% male] provided data in this study. The overall prevalence of retinal vein occlusion was 0.82% (n = 26) (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.71- 0.89%) - 23 branch and 4 central RVO. Older age (odds ...
Statistics have shown that the tuition industry in Singapore is reported to be worth $820 million today, up from $470 million in 1998. This shows that the demand for tuition in Singapore is rapidly growing. What could have caused home tuition to become so widely popular in recent years? This is probably due to the competitive education system in Singapore. Furthermore many Singaporeans are what we call kiasu, which is a Singapore slang fear of losing. Many parents are concerned with their childrens academic results and usually like to compare and boast about their children having good grades. Therefore if you want your child to excel in studies, you need to help him find the right private tutor for him. ...

AK: Well, when it was first announced that Indonesia would be embarking on the tax amnesty, even before the amnesty was implemented, there were some news express that this would create unhappiness with Singapore that the Singapore economic would collapse. And that Singapore will go all out to ensure the tax amnesty failed in Indonesia. One can speculate, why such negative views has been expressed for example we can speculate that maybe one reason for such statement and such view is that some people in Indonesia may view that they dont want tax amnesty to succeed. Or they may view that perhaps it may failed therefore its better to blame somebody else for it right from the start and find excuse. We can speculate about this things. But I dont think that its particularly helpful to Indonesia or to Singapore. Lets look at this issue totality. I think its entirely within Indonesias right to come up with its own tax reforms. And I think Presiden Jokowi and his official has made it very clear ...

Researchers from the NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI) and the Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have discovered that the untapped natural ability of microbial communities could be harnessed to treat raw water even before undergoing treatment. This process is known as bioremediation, a treatment that uses naturally occurring organisms to break down organic pollutants. The study, which was published in the scientific journal Environmental Science & Technology, was conducted around the Ulu Pandan catchment area in collaboration with the Singapores national water agency, PUB.. Microbes - Natures garbage cleaners. The increased demand for water in urban centres, coupled with the elevated pressures placed on the environment by high-density living, has created a demand for efficient, environmentally sustainable solutions to manage urban watersheds.

Lee Kwan Yew in 2013. (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images). But Singapores appeal to foreign investors and migrants is easy to understand. The city has developed arguably the worlds best urban infrastructure, and its streets are rarely congested. Subways and buses, though crowded, are clean and generally well-functioning. The PAP regimes intelligent planning also extended to housing. Before the PAP came to power, Singapores housing stock was dominated by run-down slums. By establishing the Housing Development Board, the state created decent, if small, residences for its citizens. This helped keep housing prices well below those in other Asian cities. Wendell Cox estimates that the citys housing costs relative to income are roughly one-third to one-half those in Hong Kong, Shenzen, Beijing, and Shanghai. Its home ownership rates are well above those in the United States.. Singapore also offers a stable legal and business climate. Like Hong Kong, the city-state benefits from a tradition of ...
At about 7AM, the alarm went off and away we went to Sentosa Golf Club. After about 6 cups of coffee, I had the chance to get up and talk about a problem that is near and dear to the hearts of many in the region…Algae. Although this was our first stop on the tour, I quickly was schooled in the variation in the weather around the region and the unique weather patterns typical in Singapore. My initial thought was that weather within all of southeast Asia was similar, but I quickly realized that each region had its unique qualities and Singapores was numerous days of cloud cover and shade which has a big influence on the warm-season grasses grown there.

This marks a significant milestone in building one of the worlds largest inland floating solar PV systems. This system will not only help to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and thus carbon emissions but also build Singapores climate resilience for a more sustainable future.. This large-scale floating solar PV system at Tengeh Reservoir - the first of its kind in the region - will enable Singapore to be one of the few countries in the world to integrate green technology with water treatment. When the project begins full commercial operations next year, the amount of clean energy generated will be sufficient to power PUBs local water treatment plants, offsetting 7% of PUBs annual energy needs.. The project will also incorporate new innovations in floating solar PV design and construction. Every component of the system was carefully designed and selected based on Singapores climate conditions in order to maximize energy generation, minimize environmental and water quality impact, and be ...

There are few differences in the presentation of breast cancer between Malaysia and Singapore in terms of pattern, knowledge and awareness of symptoms and causes, and reported barriers in seeking medical care. Our findings have implications, particularly for Singapore, a country that boasts of having the most efficient healthcare,17and ranked 6th of WHOs best health systems in the world.18. Similar to previous evidence,7 ,8 we also found that Malaysian patients presented at later stages compared to Singaporean patients, and Malay ethnicity had the highest incidence of advanced stage cancer and delayed presentation compared to being Chinese and Indian in both countries.. Poor knowledge and awareness of breast cancer (symptoms, causes and treatment) was the underlying cause of the reported barriers to early presentation.13 In the present study, three participants reported not having heard of breast cancer and, of the participants who knew about breast cancer, not all were aware of the different ...
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a complex inflammatory disease that is a leading cause of death in developed countries. The serum amyloid A (SAA) protein family, which has been found to play multiple roles in lipid metabolism and immune regulation, is thought to contribute to CAD development. Previous work in this laboratory has shown that an exonic non-synonymous single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the human SAA1 gene increases CAD risk in a Singaporean Chinese population. Promoter and intronic SNPs could also affect the development of CAD by modulating basal SAA levels. Hence, in this study, a case-control analysis of the association between three non-exonic SNPs of human SAA1 (-2G,A, -250G,A and IVS3+28A,G) and the occurrence of CAD was performed for a Singaporean Chinese population. For each SNP, approximately 350 each of cases and controls were genotyped using allele-specific PCR. The 95% confidence intervals for the allelic odds ratios were 0.68-1.95 (-2G,A), 0.35-1.73 (-250G,A) and ...
The finding of narrow arteriolar caliber among females who watched ,1 hour of TV per day differed from that of the MESA and the AusDiab studies, which showed higher levels of TV viewing time to be associated with wider venular caliber in the overall population and in males, respectively. 25,27 Greater time spent in sedentary behaviors such as TV viewing could have potent deleterious effects on biological attributes such as lipoproteins and C-reactive protein. 24,42 However, the reasons for the association of CRAE with TV viewing among females in our study remain speculative. Sex differences have been noted in the associations of TV viewing time with cardiometabolic biomarkers, in which relationships were stronger in females than those in males. 18,43,44 In the ARIC study and subsequent meta-analysis, 5,45 the relationship between retinal vascular caliber and incident coronary heart disease was stronger in females than that in males, and may reflect the greater contribution of small vessel ...
