    Climate Crisis: The Polar Regions in a 2°C Warmer World - what is the connection and impact of such scenario to the mid-latitudes and the tropics?

    The mid-latitudes and the tropics are the Earth’s climate hot spots that suffer from the climate crisis and climate change from both poles. The warming of Arctic imposes pressures on the cities, people and food production in these already stressed areas.
     
    Additionally, the warmed Antarctic ecosystems are vulnerable to state shifts and species invasions. The loss of land ice in both regions will contribute substantially to global sea level rise.

    The key aim of MISA9 is to provide a platform to share and discuss polar climate variability, atmospheric dynamics, polar oceanography, climate and sea ice modeling, as well as biological response and adaptation. We hope that the papers presented and shared data can be used towards creating mitigation measures, policies and international cooperation and networking.
    The 9th Malaysian International Seminar on Antarctica (MISA9) is jointly organized by Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA), Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Yayasan Penyelidikan Antartika Sultan Mizan (YPASM) and National Antarctic Research Centre (NARC), Malaysia.

    We cordially invite you to participate in this polar sciences seminar.

    Antidote for antimicrobial resistance during Covid-19 pandemic | New Straits Times

    LETTERS: In October 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the top 10 global public health threats, the misuse and overuse of antimicrobial agents the main cause, coupled with inadequate infection prevention and control measures.

    Malaysia witnessed 1,013,438 confirmed Covid-19 cases with 7,994 deaths as of July 25, 2021, leading to almost all the government's healthcare institutions fully occupied due to the increasing number of patients needing admission and intensive care, vulnerable for secondary bacterial infections and increased risk of AMR.....

    Benua yang luasnya dianggarkan mewakili satu persepuluh daripada kawasan muka bumi ini begitu kaya dengan keunikan biodiversiti. Terdapat pelbagai jenis hidupan di kawasan itu termasuk burung skua, penguin dan anjing laut. Tidak ketinggalan di kawasan itu juga terkenal dengan ikan krill yang kaya dengan zat protein.

    Ekosistem yang menarik dan keunikan biodiversiti yang ada di kawasan itu menjadikan benua itu tumpuan bagi perkembangan industri bio-prospektif dunia. Malah, syarikat Unilever menggunakan bakteria daripada tasik Antartika sebagai bahan antibeku untuk melembutkan aiskrim.... Read More
