And still, there are those who cannot, and will not, see the problem staring in their face. Cameron Highlands is one of the most prominent hill resorts in the country. It is famed for its quaint colonial bungalows and resthouses, tea plantations, vegetable farms ...
How about combining good old quotas with trendy KPIs for a different effect? MY dad was a police officer.

AT a seminar last year, an officer from the Malacca education department pointed out that the prospects of school-leavers who studied in Chinese national-type schools were unlimited. In fact, they enjoyed a distinct advantage, especially in securing jobs involving trading with China and overseas/ cosmopolitan Chinese. Taking a non-political and non-legalistic view, I must disagree for Chinese ...

I usually receive the medicine one or two days after it is sent. On April 17, the usual package did not arrive. The pharmacist in Port Dickson called me on April ...

MANILA--For the past five years, the Philippines has dodged the recession plaguing the developed world mainly because of the billions of dollars sent home by some 10 million Filipinos living or working abroad.

Beijing was quick to condemn the "barbaric act" by the Philippines. On the other hand, however, it reminded Manila of the "one China" policy, under which Taiwan is not to be treated as a state, and hence President Benigno Aquino should not apologize to either President Ma Ying-jeou or to the government of Taiwan. After Aquino said he would be guided by the "one ...

It was officially announced by both China and the US yesterday that Chinese President Xi Jinping will meet with US President Barack Obama in California on June 7 and 8. This meeting will be somewhat "unofficial" because it will take place as Xi travels to three Latin American nations.

Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead. I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back.

The offence is punishable with a maximum jail term of 10 years.

"My mother was compelled to commit suicide because the company could not refund the hard earned money she had invested. The company and Sen are responsible for her death," said Pramanik. ...
