MAHSOPA TO SPONSOR PA UPGRADING SYSTEM IN NEWLY RENOVATED MHS HALL

Our Malacca High School Hall has finally been renovated after 33 years.

Since her official opening in 1984, no major renovations works have been carried out.

Due to age and wear, some ceiling boards have dislodged over time, making the hall rather hazardous when assembly is held.

At the same time, water leaks from the roof damaged the wooden floor of the badminton halls.

The school managed to obtain a budget from the government authorities to carry out the overdue renovations.






Renovations started around April 2017 and works were completed in September 2017.

The hall will be air conditioned as well.

Good news for the school and our MAHSOPA members is that MAHSOPA is sponsoring the hall PA system upgrading works.

During our last 190th. Anniversary Dinner organized by MAHSOPA, we made some excess funds.

So, we can now assist our alma mater by sponsoring this important PA system for our school.

MALACCA HIGH SCHOOL HALL RENOVATED

Our school hall built in 1984 was recently renovated with funds allocated by the Ministry of Education.

Before the renovations, the ceiling boards were falling down from the ceiling.

The holes in the ceiling were unsightly and dangerous to the students.

The wooden floor of the hall were also damaged by water falling down from the ceiling.

So, in 2017 after funds made available by the Ministry of Education, it is renovated.

Below are some photos of our renovated school hall.










A sponsor has agreed to have the hall aircond.

FORMER MHS PUPIL, DR CHUA RISKED HIS SAFETY TO DISCOVER NIPAH VIRUS

Dr Chua Kaw Beng had discovered the Nipah virus whilst it was still in the midst of the outbreak here that eventually killed 105 people and led to the culling of over a million pigs. — AFP picKUALA LUMPUR, Feb 27 — Dr Chua Kaw Beng is one of the most unassuming people you will ever see, but he is the man that possibly rescued Malaysia from one of the most virulent viruses known to man: the Nipah virus.
Today, the Nipah virus is well known, having been the inspiration for the 2011 movie Contagion, but in 1999, when it had been confused for Japanese encephalitis (JE), Dr Chua broke all manner of rules in order to prove his discovery.
In an interview with US media outlet NPR, Dr Chua recounted how, when he was still a virologist in training, he had discovered the Nipah virus whilst it was still in the midst of the outbreak here that eventually killed 105 people and led to the culling of over a million pigs.
He made the chilling discovery in the lab of Universiti Malaya (UM) where he was still studying, but was ignored by his professors when he brought his findings to them.
Local authorities had also not given the outbreak their full attention, then believing it was another JE incident with mosquitoes as the vector.
Dr Chua and Dr Tan Chong Tin, a neurologist also based at UM, noticed then that the disease was entirely absent from the Muslim population, but was ravaging Nipah, the home of many of the country's pig farms and where one in three families eventually lost someone to the virus,
“No, no I knew it was something else, and people were dying!” Dr Chua told NPR in the interview published on Saturday. “But no one would believe me.”
Dr Chua then decided to sneak samples of the virus into the Centers for Disease Control in the US, under the pretext of studying mosquito-borne diseases. He sealed the virus in his suitcase and carried it by hand on the flight to and into the CDC.
There, he would have access to the CDC's powerful microscopes that would allow him to clearly study the virus, but how he brought the samples into the centre broke many of its safety and quarantine procedures.
“It was an emergency… I had to get the samples there very quickly,” he explained.
As risky as the move was, it allowed Dr Chua to identify the virus as paramyxol, the virus family that contains both the Hendra virus and what would later be called Nipah, after the area that it most ravaged.
The discovery and later corroboration by other scientists at the CDC were crucial in convincing the Malaysian government then that the outbreak was not JE, prompting it to deploy the military in a massive culling operation that killed over a million swines.
It was discovered a decade later that the pigs had been infected by bats, and the clustered nature of farms then had made them what Dr Tan described as a “virus factory”.
The outbreak led to a complete overhaul of Malaysia's pig farming industry.
Dr Chua has since left the country for the Temasek Lifesciences Laboratory in Singapore, where he is senior principal investigator.
Dr Tan remains attached to UM as a neurologist.
Both men were part of the UM investigative team that was conferred such prizes as the Merdeka Award and the Mahathir Science Award for their efforts in discovering the Nipah virus.

MCOBA NEWS

KUALA LUMPUR: UEM Sunrise Bhd’s unit, Sunrise Innovation Sdn Bhd, will develop the Malay College Old Boys Association’s (MCOBA) land in Kuala Lumpur into a mixed development project, with a gross development value (GDV) in excess of RM750mil.

The group said its subsidiary would build two blocks of service apartments, together with other supporting facilities on the 1.07ha site, located along Jalan Syed Putra in Seputeh.

“The unit size ranges from 1,100 sq ft to 1,500 sq ft, and the units are targeted for mostly owner occupiers, especially families and upgraders from the surrounding areas,” the parties said in a joint statement.

Under the deal inked between the group and the association on Tuesday, the development will also involve the construction of a new office building for MCOBA and a banquet hall with a capacity for 1,200 people.

UEM Sunrise managing director and chief executive officer Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib said the project provided an opportunity to leverage on the next property market upcycle.

“MCOBA land’s strategic location would appeal to city dwellers, due to its proximity to amenities and commercial hubs such as Mid Valley City and KL Sentral.

“Being centrally located and with easy access to the surrounding hotspots, the development will become a new landmark for the locality,” he said.

MCOBA president Tunku Datuk Ahmad Burhanuddin Tunku Datuk Seri Adnan said the collaboration would unlock the value of its asset and generate sustainable income for the association.

“This development is for our future as we continue our tradition and commitment to be part of the stakeholder support system to produce Malaysia’s leaders and captains of industries,” he said. - Bernama
