Treehouse

Treehouse

It is no news to students that there have been huge changes brought to the Food and Beverage services of UNMC. We’ve been offered a large variety of cuisines to tickle our taste buds. The newest addition to this list may come as a delight to those of us who feel deprived of a proper Café experience as a result of living in the jungle. Lucky for you guys, Treehouse Café at the Terrace Cafeteria is here to make your university experience just a little bit better. As far as Cafés should go, Treehouse seems to be keeping up with the latest trends. Not only will you get different varieties of coffee, you also have a selection of main dishes, pizzas, and delicious cakes and pastries. Tea drinkers don’t be alarmed! You guys have the option to choose between the different flavours of tea. The owner Christine Bong suggests dropping by between 12pm-2pm where you can enjoy a 12” Pizza for RM12.50 or Chicken for RM8.50 with drinks. To keep things interesting, there will be different toppings for pizza each day. The Treehouse Café also plans on having open mic nights and monthly movie nights. To kick-start this, there will be a screening of The Conjuring on 29th of October for Halloween. The owners of the Treehouse Café already have established cafeterias in two other Universities in Malaysia: The Glasshouse Café in MAHSA University, and The Warehouse Café in Multimedia University. Calling this one The Treehouse Café is rather self-explanatory as UNMC is at the heart of the jungle. The Treehouse Cafe can also be used on various nl...
Global Transformation Forum 2015

Global Transformation Forum 2015

On the 21st and 22nd of October 2015 the Big Fast Results Institute (BFR-I), in partnership with United Nations Development Programmed (UNDP), organized The Global Transformation Forum at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. Its aim was to promote sharing of best practices and approaches on how socio economic transformation can effectively take shape in a global environment. The Global Transformation Forum brought together key policy makers, global opinion leaders, notable figureheads, corporate mavericks and experts onto one stage as they congregate and collaboratively discuss, debate and share their respective experiences, insights and observations on how global transformation can effectively take shape. This forum was needed to bring attention to Globalisation that invokes a need to open local and national perspectives to embrace a broader outlook of the world. One that is interconnected and interdependent. As such, there is a growing need for global stakeholders to collectively dialogue, share experiences and best practices, and to develop a transformational resolve to address key socio-economic issues that may impact nations globally. The two days of GTF robust dialogue left us with new perspectives on transforming the future of our world. We acquired a first-hand perspective from thought leaders and their experience and insights on what it takes to effectively drive transformation in the global arena. We also witnessed an exclusive preview of how to ‘Operationalise Transformation’ with proven methodologies, best practices and case studies from a collection of luminary icons. We were given the opportunity to engage with high profile international and regional stakeholders and delegates – a significant opportunity for high-level exchange and sharing with key influencers and decision makers on...
New Student Association Branding

New Student Association Branding

Update of the Student Association Logo After quite a bit of review the Student Association logo has been updated. This change has been brought about due to the fact that the old logo has “University of Nottingham” in a much font size than “Malaysia Campus”. So the updated logo reflects this new change with the logo design elements being a bit larger and all the text being center aligned. This change does effect a lot of branding that is being used by clubs and societies but it’s an important and necessary change for the long run. You can view and compare the old and the new logo and we advise all the Clubs and Societies to take note of this change and make sure all your print materials follow the new branding guidelines which can be downloaded via the link at the bottom of the page.

Hazeeeee!!

Hazeeeee!! <_<

HEALTH ADVISORY DURING HAZE FROM MINISTRY OF HEALTH, MALAYSIA Introduction Haze is a situation where there is pollution to the air by suspended particulate matter. The various determinants of air pollution are, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone, Carbon Monoxide and PM10. The fine particulate matter or PM10 (particulate of size 10 micron and below) is the main concern as it may lead to adverse health conditions. Haze is caused when sunlight encounters tiny pollution particles in the air. Some light is absorbed by particles while other light is scattered away before it reaches an observer. The more the pollutants, the more the absorption and scattering of light, which reduces the clarity and color of what we see. Air quality is determined by the Air Pollutant Index which is measured by the Department of Environment, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. The Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994, stipulates that it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure the safety, health and welfare of the employee. The employer is thus responsible to ensure that preventive measures are taken for employees who are performing their tasks during the haze. Health Effects of Haze Exposure to haze may cause a variety of adverse health effects. The small particles that cause haze are composed of microscopic solids or liquid droplets that are so small that they can get deep into the lungs and cause serious health problems. When inhaled, they can enter the bloodstream and get absorbed by underlying tissue, potentially interacting with other compounds and substances in the body, for example ‘bad’ cholesterol, to produce damaging effects such as inflammation. Short-term adverse...
