DR. MOKHTAR (kiri) dan Dr. Stephen Chia menunjukkan tengkorak manusia lelaki dipercayai berusia 600 tahun yang ditemui di Kota Melaka.



GEORGE TOWN - Penemuan rangka manusia di Kota Melaka yang dipercayai dari zaman Kesultanan Melayu Melaka awal tahun ini menemui perkembangan positif.

Analisis Pusat Penyelidikan Arkeologi Malaysia (PPMA), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) merungkai pelbagai maklumat dan masih menanti untuk penilaian lanjut.

Pengarah PPAM, USM, Prof. Madya Dr. Mokhtar Saidin memberitahu, analisis mendapati empat rangka lengkap yang berasal dari tahun 1400 hingga 1450 itu terdiri daripada tiga rangka lelaki dan satu perempuan.

Katanya, keempat-empat rangka itu dalam lingkungan usia 25 hingga 45 tahun dan 40 hingga 44 tahun bagi lelaki dan 17 hingga 25 tahun bagi perempuan.

Jelas beliau, pengenalan dilakukan menerusi gigi dan tulang pinggang khususnya tulang pelvis iaitu kerangka bahagian gigi lelaki lebih kasar dan besar, manakala perempuan pula lebih berbentuk tajam dan halus.

Hasil kajian juga mendapati rangka bukan beragama Islam kerana ditanam secara lurus pada arah timur barat, kepala di bahagian barat.

"Pengesahan lanjut seperti ras, bangsa dan lain-lain akan ditentukan melalui kajian ujian asid deoksiribonukliek (DNA) yang sedang dijalankan di Pusat Kimia USM dan juga Beta Analytic, Florida, Amerika Syarikat," katanya pada sidang akhbar di sini semalam.

Kosmo! awal tahun ini melaporkan, rangka ditemui di pekarangan bangunan Unit Polis Pelancong Melaka di Jalan Kota yang diyakini merupakan kawasan perkuburan berdasarkan banyak rangka ditemui di situ.

George Town inner city in miniature


By WINNIE YEOH

Link to original article


AS George Town celebrates its Unesco world heritage site listing, a group of young artists and sculptors have come up with a collection of miniature heritage buildings and sculptures featuring scenes of traditional inner city.

About 20 sculptures on the Penang Heritage Theme have been completed so far to showcase the inner city's beautiful old clan houses and temples, a streetscape, roadside hawker stalls such as those selling satay, chendol and laksa as well as traditional barber shop and a vibrant wet market scene.

Soon touching up on a sculpture depicting a typical Penang market scene.



The artists have painstakingly created their works of art, and included even the smallest details to make their work look authentic, such as intricate paintings on the walls and roofs of a clan house, half drawn wooden blinds of old shophouses, a market goer bending to pick some vegetables and a group of elderly men squatting by the roadside to have their meal.

The unique project was started four years ago by a group of enthusiastic artists from SculptureAtWork (M) Sdn Bhd, all locally trained.

Company CEO Soon Yee Ling, 40, said they started making heritage sculptures in 2003 although the company, which specialised in commercial sculpting, was formed 10 years ago.

揑t takes a lot of patience and passion to complete a sculpture as it is a very delicate piece of art.

揙ne also needs to have a sharp eye for details that is the fundamental requirement for a sculptor,

Orang ramai kecoh 'beg ada bom' di stesen minyak

Link to original article


PULAU PINANG 27 Julai - Orang ramai di sekitar sebuah stesen minyak di Jalan Sungai Nibong di sini digemparkan dengan penemuan sebuah beg di pekarangan stesen tersebut yang dikatakan mengandungi bom, semalam.

Polis yang menerima panggilan daripada orang awam pada pukul 3.30 petang bergegas ke tempat kejadian lima minit kemudian bersama pasukan bomba dan ambulans.

Ketua Polis Daerah Barat Daya, Supritendan Hatta Md. Zain berkata, hasil pemeriksaan Unit Pemusnah Bom, beg tersebut sebenarnya hanya mengandungi cebisan-cebisan kertas dan beberapa keping cakera padat.

"Sebelum ia dibuka, orang ramai diminta menjauhkan diri dari kawasan berkenaan kerana khuatir akan keselamatan mereka.

"Kira-kira pukul tujuh malam, unit berkenaan telah menggunakan robot untuk membuka beg tersebut namun tanggapan orang ramai meleset kerana yang ada hanyalah kertas-kertas," katanya kepada pemberita di sini.

Menurutnya, kira-kira 30 orang anggota dan pegawai polis dari Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) negeri dan Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Barat Daya bergegas ke tempat kejadian bagi menangani insiden tersebut.

Selain itu katanya, empat anggota Unit Pemusnah Bom berada di tempat kejadian bagi memastikan beg yang ditinggalkan di stesen itu benar-benar mengandungi bom atau tidak.

"Beg itu kini dibawa oleh pihak polis untuk disiasat dan kawasan itu disahkan selamat kira-kira pukul 7.40 malam,'' katanya.

Pedal power rides to the fore

Cyclists taking part in a riding campaign in George Town to show that pedal power is one way to fight the recent petrol price hike. — NST picture by GS Narinder Singh



GEORGE TOWN: The bicycle is back in vogue in Penang, and for good reason.

Two thousand cyclists rode in a 12km bicycle ride organised by the Consumers' Association of Penang (CAP) yesterday to show that pedal power was one answer to the recent petrol price hike.

They took 45 minutes to cycle down Lebuh Pantai, Lebuh Chulia, Jalan Penang, Jalan Burma, Jalan Anson, Jalan Perak, Jalan Macalister, Lebuhraya Peel, Jalan Pangkor, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, Lebuh Farquhar, Lebuh Light and back to Lebuh Downing where they had been flagged off.

CAP president S.M. Mohamed Idris who flagged off the ride at Bangunan Tuanku Syed Putra said the state government should create bicycle lanes along roads.

He also urged the state government to provide free bicycles to civil servants who wanted to cycle to work.

"Penang is a suitable place for cycling as most destinations are reachable by bicycles. The bicycle can help consumers save on transport costs," he added.

Mohamed Idris said the bicycle was cheap to maintain and was a healthy way of travelling.

"With this campaign and hopefully more to come, we hope to create a network of bicycle lovers throughout Malaysia to demonstrate the use of the bicycle as a transport solution," he added.

He said Malaysians had to reduce their dependence on motorised transport to reduce carbon emission and combat climate change.

Mohamed Idris also urged the Federal Government to declare on a Saturday a National Cycling Day to promote cycling.

Among the cyclists were retired teacher Tan Tiang Tat, 60, his daughter-in-law Lum Pek Yok, 38, and grandchildren Lim Shian Ying, 11, and Lim Shian Weei, 9.

"Yesterday, we practised hard at the playground at Sungai Nibong," said Tan.

"Today's event is well organised and we enjoyed ourselves," he added.

Meanwhile, Safiah Ibrahim, 49, came with 10 other friends -- eight women and two men -- from Bukit Mertajam to take part in the campaign.

"We hired a lorry to transport our bicycles while we drove here in two cars," she said.

Safiah said she was part of an all-women cycling group.

They cycle three or four times a week around Tasek Gelugor, Ara Kuda and Sungai Dua on the mainland.

They had no trouble finishing yesterday's ride as they are used to cycling more than 12km on their regular trips.

Since 2006, CAP has organised six bicycle campaigns in Penang, Alor Star, Ipoh, UUM.

10,000 expected at dragon boat challenge

July 30, 2008

GEORGE TOWN: More than 10,000 international dragon boat paddlers, their family members and visitors are expected to be in Penang in conjunction with the 6th Club Crew World Championships and the 8th Asian Dragon Boat Championships starting tomorrow.

They are among the 220 teams from 22 countries participating in the three-day event, organised by the Penang International Dragon Boat Federation and the International Dragon Boat Federation.

Western Pennsylvania-based Pittsburgh Paddlefish team's manager Carolyn Newkirk said her team members were thrilled to be here for the club crew world championships.

"This is the first time most of us are in Penang and we are very excited with the prospect of leading our challenge here.

"It should be a very exciting event as we have been told that there are more than 7,000 fellow paddlers rowing in various categories at the Teluk Bahang dam," said Newkirk, whose team was sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline, the world's leading research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare company.

Newkirk said her members also could not wait to visit the George Town heritage enclave especially after its recent listing in the World Heritage Site by Unesco.

Organising chairman Danny Law said the state government had put in a lot of efforts to make the event successful.

He said the large turnout would also create an enormous impact on the state's tourism industry.

"We are happy that the event has attracted more than 10,000 visitors including the competitors and their family members to the island.

"In fact, the state government regards this as an opportune time to lure the visitors to the event, especially with the recent listing of George Town as a World Heritage Site," said Law.

Baja subsidi terlebih pasir

Oleh Tuty Haryanti Ahmad Rodzi
bhnews@bharian.com.my


Link to original article


GEORGETOWN: Persatuan Pengguna Pulau Pinang (CAP) mendakwa baja organik subsidi yang diberi kepada pesawah padi mempunyai kandungan pasir tiga kali ganda lebih tinggi daripada sepatutnya.

Mengikut kajian CAP, sekampit baja seberat 25 kilogram, kandungan pasir yang tertera di bungkusan ialah sembilan kilogram, tetapi kajian mendapati kandungannya antara 24.7 peratus hingga 27.1 peratus.

Mengumumkan hasil kajian itu, Presiden CAP, SM Mohamed Idris, berkata pihaknya juga mendapati kandungan nitrogen, fosforus dan kalium rendah berbanding yang tercatat di bungkusan baja.

Kandungan ketiga-tiga bahan itu yang dicatat pada bungkusan masing-masing dua peratus tetapi ujian menunjukkan ia hanya 0.73 peratus hingga 1.86 peratus.

Berikutan penemuan itu, CAP mendakwa baja organik subsidi kerajaan kepada pesawah padi kurang berkualiti.

揔ita percaya lebihan pasir itu sengaja dicampur untuk menambahkan berat.

"Kajian juga mendapati ada bahan bermutu rendah termasuk sampah selain kepingan kaca dan batu kecil yang ditemui pesawah," katanya pada sidang media di pejabatnya di sini, semalam.

Hadir sama, Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Bertindak Petani Mada, Kedah, Cik Ani Mat Zain.

Baja organik seberat 25 kilogram sekampit itu diedarkan secara percuma kepada pesawah padi di bawah skim Lembaga Kemajuan Pertanian Muda (Mada) menerusi Pertubuhan Peladang Kawasan (PPK).

Setiap pesawah diberikan dua kampit baja setiap musim dan hanya perlu membayar RM1 untuk bayaran pengangkutan bagi setiap kampit.

Difahamkan, baja organik itu hanya diagihkan kepada petani di Arau, Perlis; Air Hitam, Kerpan, Sanglang, Tunjang, Jitra, Sungai Bharu dan Kodiang, Kedah, yang meliputi kawasan seluas hampir 50 hektar.

Katanya, baja yang digunakan pesawah sejak 2007 juga menyebabkan pengeluaran padi merosot sehingga 20 peratus dan mengakibatkan hasil tanaman terbantut.

"Pesawah juga mendakwa baja organik yang digunakan sekarang menyebabkan tanah menjadi lembut dan jerlus, selain kegatalan kulit selepas digunakan," katanya.

Berikutan itu, SM Mohamed mendesak Kementerian Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani menghentikan segera pengagihan baja organik yang tidak berkualiti kepada petani.

New traffic system proposal

By TUNKU SHAHARIAH
August 1, 2008


Link to original article


MOTORISTS on Penang island should brace themselves for yet another change to the traffic system in Sungai Pinang, Jelutong, Island Glades and around Burmah Road.

The Penang Municipal Council is considering changing the one-way traffic system in Sungai Pinang Road (between Jelutong Road and Patani Road), Patani Road (between Sungai Pinang Road and Veterinary Road), Veterinary Road and Jelutong Road (between Gurdwara Road, C.Y. Choy Road and Sungai Pinang Road) back to two-way traffic flow.

On the other hand, the present two-way traffic system in Gurdwara Road (between C.Y. Choy Road and River Road) has been proposed to be turned into a one-way street.





Aerial view: This stretch of Jalan Jelutong is presently a one-way street.



The people are given the opportunity to decide whether they want the change as the council is seeking public feedback before implementing the new system.

A council spokesman said distribution roads complementing the one-way street circuit would not face heavy traffic flow if the two-way street system was introduced.

揟his is because most vehicles will be using main roads such as Jelutong Road and Sungai Pinang Road while Patani Road will be the inter road between Datuk Keramat Road and River Road. Residents in Veterinary Road and River Road are unaffected as they can continue to use these roads.

He added that residents living along these roads had earlier objected to the implementation of the one-way traffic system in 2003 because of the increase in traffic volume in the area.

The council is also proposing to make some changes to the traffic flow along Lorong Delima 5 and part of Lorong Delima 3 and Lorong Delima 7 to turn them into a one-way streets.

This would mean the flow of traffic along Lorong Delima 3 would be from the direction of Lorong Delima 6 heading towards Lorong Delima 5.





Jalan CY Choy heading toward Jalan Jelutong.



Traffic flow along Lorong Delima 5 would flow from the direction of Lorong Delima 3 to Lorong Delima 7 while traffic flow along Lorong Delima 7 would flow from the direction of Lorong Delima 5 to Lorong Delima 6.

At Burma Road, the plan is to turn part of Jalan Servis (from Burma Road to Irrawadi Road) and Chow Thye Road (from Irrawadi Road to Burma Road) into a one-way traffic.

The spokesman said the public is invited to submit their views on the proposed traffic rearrangements before Aug 23 so that the council can raise them at its meeting prior to the system抯 implementation.

Views can be sent to Pengarah Kejuruteraan, Jabatan Kejuruteraan, Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang, Tingkat 13, Komtar, 10675 Pulau Pinang or fax to 04-2611990 or call Rafidah or Rashidah at 04-2592202 or email rejendra@mppp.gov.my.

For more details on the proposal, visit the council抯 website at www.mppp.gov.my.

Namun, kepada Ismail Shafiee, 68, dan isterinya, Salmiah Muhamad, 64, ijazah sarjana muda yang diperoleh tahun ini bukan penamat, malah mereka meneruskan misi akademik untuk meraih ijazah sarjana pula.

"Kami dah langsaikan tanggung jawab memberi pendidikan secukupnya kepada anak-anak.

"Sekarang giliran kami berdua pula untuk meningkatkan jati diri, keyakinan dan menambahkan pengalaman,'' kata Ismail kepada pemberita selepas majlis angkat sumpah pelajar ijazah lanjutan sesi 2008/2009 di Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) semalam.

Pasangan bekas guru sekolah rendah itu adalah antara enam pelajar warga emas dari kalangan 1,566 pelajar pasca ijazah USM sesi ini.

Girl triumphs over blindness

By ANN TAN


Link to original article


WHEN partially blind student Alfa Nur Aini Erman Afandi, 17, walked up the stage with the help of her friend to receive the Best Student in Inclusive Programme award, her father Erman Afandi Sabdul, watched her with a sense of pride.

The St George’s Girls School Form Five student received the award from Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas during the school’s Hari Anugerah Cemerlang in Penang on Friday.

“I feel very happy and seronok studying here because the teachers and friends are very good and helpful. I’m glad that I can study together with the students despite being partially blind. The teachers and my schoolmates treat me just the same,” she said.





Well done: Alfa Nur Aini getting a congratulatory peck from Erman.



Erman Afandi, 51, said he never expected her daughter to do so well in school.

“Her primary special school teacher saw her potential and recommended her to study in this school.

“Initially, I was so worried about how she was going to cope with the studies, particularly in a premier school that would have a lot of competitions and stress,” he said.

But Alfa Nur Aini, who has six siblings, two of whom are also visually impaired, was very determined.

Meanwhile, Sarah Chew Sue Mei won the Best Student 2008 award.

The 17-year-old prefect surprised everyone in the hall when the master of ceremony went through a long list of her achievements.





Abdul Rahman: presenting the Best Student 2008 award to Sue Mei.



“I think my active participation in academic and co-curricular activities won me the award,” she said, adding that she also learnt piano, violin, cello and other musical instruments.

Asked how she handled the hectic schedule, Chew, who obtained 13As in her mid-term exam, said she would always grab any free time to do her revision.

“I’ve never found myself suffocated with the many activities. Music and co-curricular activities are the medium to help me release some stress,” she said.

Terminal sementara selesa

Oleh WAN NAJIB WAN DAUD


Link to original article







TERMINAL Pengangkutan Sementara Penang Sentral akan digunakan untuk kemudahan orang ramai sehingga kerja-kerja pembinaan hab pengangkutan Penang Sentral siap dibangunkan kelak. - Gambar SAZALI CHE DIN



BUTTERWORTH 7 Ogos - Terminal Pengangkutan Sementara Penang Sentral yang dirasmikan oleh Menteri Kewangan Kedua, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop 20 Julai lalu merupakan rentetan daripada salah satu inisiatif kerajaan Pusat untuk menjadikan Pulau Pinang sebagai gerbang pengangkutan di bawah Wilayah Ekonomi Koridor Utara (NCER).

Walaupun hanya bersifat sementara, pembangunan Penang Sentral sudah cukup untuk membuktikan komitmen kerajaan Pusat bagi menyediakan kemudahan yang selesa kepada sistem pengangkutan bersepadu.

Dibangunkan oleh Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd. (MRCB) dengan kerjasama Pelaburan Hartanah Bumiputera Bhd. (PHBB), terminal sementara itu menelan kos RM5 juta melibatkan pembinaan bangunan satu tingkat di atas tanah hampir satu hektar dan diuruskan oleh anak syarikat milik penuh MRCB, Semasa Sentral Sdn. Bhd.

Ia turut menyediakan 33 ruang kaunter tiket, 28 platform bas, 46 petak teksi, surau lelaki dan wanita, tandas awam, eskalator untuk pejalan kaki menaiki feri, kaunter polis serta kemudahan-kemudahan asas untuk keselesaan pengguna.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif PHBB, Kamarul Ariffin Othman berkata, memandangkan kedudukannya bersebelahan dengan terminal feri, ia mampu memberi keselesaan kepada 4,500 pengguna dalam sehari atau purata 80,000 pengguna pengangkutan awam sebulan.

"Terminal sementara mencatatkan sejarah pembinaannya kerana projek pertama diberikan kelulusan Perakuan Siap dan Pematuhan (CCC) oleh Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP)," katanya di sini baru-baru ini.

Projek Penang Sentral dibangunkan dengan nilai pembangunan kasarnya (GDV) RM2 bilion berjalan mengikut jadual dan mengikut kaedah pantas dan disasarkan siap sepenuhnya tahun 2015.

Pembangunan Penang Sentral dijangka bermula suku pertama tahun depan dengan fasa pertama menelan kos RM300 juta manakala fasa berikutnya akan berjalan berdasarkan jadual projek.

Ia disasarkan untuk mengukuhkan Pulau Pinang sebagai hab NCER dan dibina di kawasan seluas 12.8 hektar, berdekatan terminal feri Sultan Abdul Halim di Butterworth.

Menurut Kamarul Ariffin, terminal itu akan diuruskan oleh anak syarikat milik penuh MRCB, Semasa Sentral Sdn. Bhd., dan menawarkan perkhidmatan seperti pengurusan lalu lintas yang melibatkan laluan bas henti-henti dan bas ekspres, teksi, khidmat pelanggan, operasi dan penyenggaraan bangunan.

Memandangkan kedudukan terminal yang strategik, Kamarul Ariffin berkata, ia boleh dijadikan pintu masuk utama ke Pulau Pinang kerana adanya perkhidmatan pengangkutan awam lain seperti feri dan kereta api.

Setakat ini katanya, terminal sementara mempunyai 49 syarikat bas yang berdaftar dan akan beroperasi di situ bagi mengambil dan menurun penumpang untuk ke destinasi di seluruh negara.

Namun katanya, pihaknya menjangkakan pertambahan bilangan pengendali bas terutamanya menjelang musim perayaan nanti.

Bagaimanapun, pengendali bas awam RapidPenang Sdn. Bhd., telah menjadikan terminal itu sebagai hab operasi mereka di Seberang Perai dan beroperasi selepas ia dirasmikan.
