2019 New Year Message From Dato Sri Ang Lai Soon "WE CAN NOT AFFORD NOT TO SUCCEED IN OUR NATION BUILDING EFFORT"

Dubbed “THE GREEN CRUSADER” by the media at St.John Ambulance Sarawak Dinner at the state parliament house

"Miraculous Changes For The Better In 2018"
"Protect The Environment, Fauna and Flora " "Make Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Compulsory Subject In Malaysia"

KUCHING, SARAWAK, MALAYSIA, December 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The year 2018 has witnessed unprecedented changes, on a scale almost unbelievable by any standard.

To all in the country, the dramatic changes are considered to be for the good of this young nation, a Federation formed in 1963 consisting of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore. Unfortunately, due to fundamental ideological differences, Singapore left the newly formed federation two years later, to become an independent sovereign nation, a small city-state with hardly any natural resources except its people.

How do we assess the progress of these miraculous changes?
The people of this country have achieved what they always wanted, and this augurs well for this young Federation. To translate this dream into reality is no mean job, a gigantic exercise, with few parallels.

The situation today is analogous to the case of a man lost in the jungle for a 100 days, weak, hungry and miserable and suddenly served with a 100-course Michelin Star dinner. Obviously, no mortal in that state is capable of enjoying that kind of gigantic dinner all of a sudden! He needs time to adjust himself.

For any nation with a good, dedicated, honest, fair and just leadership, there is no reason why it should not succeed.
So there is no need to worry as it will take time for people to accept the changes which are for the long term peace, harmony, progress and prosperity of Malaysia.

The dramatic change does show that people are maturing, and many millions have changed their attitude towards race and beliefs for the better.
Malaysians have seen the untold sufferings and miseries of the peoples in the Middle-East and Africa particularly, and the destruction of their countries due to conflicts and intolerance caused by different ethnic and religious groups .
We treasure our traditional peaceful and harmonious way of life , which we have been enjoying since time immemorial.
We noted that a few "newly emergent" countries , one bigger than Europe with 7,000 years of recorded history , which are stable and enjoying peace and with dedicated good leadership are on the rise, overtaking all western nations for the first time in history .
Our country can achieve greatness as we have rich natural resources, hard working people and blessed being spared of all forms of natural disasters .

On ENVIRONMENT, the younger generations especially are now more aware of the importance of environmental conservation and protection.
However, the action of some people in the name of progress and prosperity is still considered detrimental to the fragile environment.
The current erratic pattern of climate change is giving cause of concern. While some of the uninitiated were recently enjoying the extraordinarily early cherry blossom, traditionally only in Spring, I am sure many of us are deeply concerned that the Seasons are now shifting due to climate change. Winter and Summer are extreme, and generally temperatures are getting erratic.

The mighty forests must be protected and conserved as the clearing of these rainforests for massive economic activities have contributed much to climate change and the extinction of flora and fauna species which are of great importance to human existence.
In addition, the loss of forests, such as mangrove forest, may result in the disruption of the food chain and in-turn causing reduction in food production, particularly fish and shell fish species.

The use of fossil fuel and coal especially should be gradually replaced by sustainable energy including renewal energy such as hydro-electricity, wind energy, solar energy and tidal energy.

The government should formulate the right policies and provide appropriate enabling environments which are conducive for such transformation.

In the Tropics with abundent sunshine, mighty rivers and cascading streams, waterfalls and no shortage of wind anytime, we could, therefore, consider seriously putting up solar panels for our homes, buildings and factories, the government to set up wind turbines and harnessing the rivers and the streams including making good use of the tidal waves in coastal areas.

The government could perhaps consider giving tax incentives to all the citizens and to commerce and industries, for supporting the sustainable energy exercise. The incentives should include waiving sales tax for all Electric and Hybrid vehicles and also import duty for the imported ones. Public transport buses and lorries and to go green as well with tax incentives. These are examples of enabling environments that are necessary to create a sustainable transformation.

I always stress, the best hospitals in the country could never solve the multiple health problems created by pollution which is basically the cause of most health problems, particularly chest and lung infections of all sorts, and worst of all cancer, which is so common today, and it totally ruins the patients and their families financially and sometimes breaking up the families.
The root cause must be addressed. A clean and healthy nation not only has happy people but saves the people and the government millions of dollars, A healthy nation would be more productive and creative. It is a win-win situation.

Many a precious life is lost when it can .in fact, be prevented. According to surveys, cardiac arrest or heart attack is one of the top killers.
There are many instances of people who have cardiac arrest but there is nobody nearby to render help using the only known method today ie Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. However, not everybody knows CPR unless the person is a first aider, a nurse, a doctor or just being trained in CPR.
I have been campaigning for CPR to be taught in every home, school, factory and everywhere. Last year the then deputy Federal Education Minister strongly supported my proposal to make the teaching of CPR compulsory in all schools and institutions of learning throughout the country. He said that the ministry would study as to how to implement this proposal nationwide. This was also supported by Sarawak Minister of Welfare.
I am confident that the present Federal Government would give its support to my proposal so that more precious lives can be saved.

Happy New Year

Iron Dust from Brakes Contributes to Hypertension

With over 90% of brakes made of iron the iron brake dust age existing since the 1890's will not end until there is effective worldwide legislation.

KESWICK, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Iron Dust from Brakes and Worldwide Magnesium Deficiencies are Contributing to Hypertension

With 25 years of research involving primarily the cardiovascular complications of spaceflight and more recently of the moon walkers, particularly Neil Armstrong on his historic mission and James Irwin (Apollo 15), extraordinary findings were discovered. Both had vascular complications, triggered by inhalation of deadly iron-laden dust. Author Dr. William J. Rowe has applied this information as to how this can be utilized for underlying mechanisms of hypertension on earth, triggered by iron-laden brake dust.

Based on his studies of the moon walkers, primarily those of Neil Armstrong and James Irwin, Dr. William J. Rowe, former assistant clinical professor of Medicine, Medical University of Ohio at Toledo, concluded that inhalation of
highly toxic lunar iron-laden dust can contribute to extraordinary hypertension.

In an editorial, published recently in the Journal of Hypertension and Management, Dr. Rowe published that iron dust inhalation contributed to Armstrong’s extraordinary diastolic blood pressure ( 160/135 ) on Earth return, consistent with impairment of cardiac function; his high adrenaline heart failure during his lunar walk, undoubtedly played a role.

On the other hand Irwin, with a history of hypertension a month before his mission (145/ 110), returned with a bicycle stress test of 275/125 after only 3 minutes of exercise; furthermore on return, Irwin showed stress test –
“blue finger nails” consistent with vascular injuries.

Having supervised over 5000 hospital based symptom-limited maximum treadmill stress tests, Dr. Rowe had never seen such extraordinary vascular complications, apparently triggered by highly toxic iron-laden dust and intensified by a magnesium deficiency invariably occurring with space flight and extremely common world-wide.

Since at least a third of the world’s population has hypertension – with very recent studies showing that with present guidelines, among Americans, hypertension may actually exist in a half of the population, urban pollution problems must be vigorously addressed. Also, a European study has shown that 12 year old children may have hypertension from iron inhalation with often persistence of hypertension to adulthood.

Inhalation of brake iron dust may simulate the highly toxic lunar dust inhalation with at least 90 percent of brakes made with iron. In China, Dr. Rowe’s experience of having seen not over 10 cars a day in Beijing in 1988 with no obvious pollution and his return to Beijing in 2011 with inability to see the street from his 9th. Floor hotel room is very disturbing. Furthermore the toxicity of iron brakes is growing but in comparison with global warming, there isn’t the necessity of waiting 50 years before determining how great the danger might be.

In a recent editorial "The Iron Brake Dust Age and the Female Advantage", Dr. Rowe emphasized, that this age, existing since the 1890's, will not end until there is effective worldwide legislation.

Outside Financial Introduces New Approach to Car Financing

Outside Financial offers consumers an innovative way to find affordable, transparent auto financing from the comfort of home.

RICHMOND , VIRGINIA , USA, December 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Car loans and consumer-first don’t usually appear in the same sentence – even for online car loans or online car refinancings. Until now. Outside Financial offers, a new approach to a process everyone agrees is painful, even though cars are the second-biggest purchases most Americans make.

At Outside Financial, education comes first. Their videos, articles, glossary, and tools are the best available on the internet. Their goal is for consumers to understand that auto loans are about more than just auto interest rates, and to secure loans before going to the dealership. For borrowers who already got the wrong loan, or who have improved their credit, Outside Financial helps secure auto refinances. Half of consumers don’t even know they can refinance their car loans.

The Markup Index

Outside Financial’s claim to fame is the introduction of the “Markup Index”, a continuously updated database that measures exactly how much consumers spend on car loan markups. The index shows how dealerships (and other lenders) mark up prices with unclear or undisclosed add-ons. The company calculates that the average markup at auto dealerships is $1,717. Over 60% of consumers aren’t aware that markups are legal, let alone standard practice in the industry. This lack of transparency is widespread, and Outside Financial was created to educate consumers and to help them save money.

Acquiring a Car Loan Online through Outside Financial

Outside Financial’s loan process is simple and easy, and does not affect the applicant’s credit score. After answering a few questions, Outside Financial matches the borrower with one of its trusted lenders, based on what’s best for the customer, not the company. The customer chooses which lender to apply with, meaning no robocalls or spam emails from dozens of companies.

Outside Financial does not charge fees for its services. The result? Consumers can save $1,000 or more.

About the Company: Outside Financial is not a lender or a dealer. Instead, the company helps consumers understand their auto finance options and connects them to lenders from its network to find them the right loan, for a car purchase or auto refinance.

Alabama Logistics Company, BR Williams, Earns CTB Certifications

BR Williams Team Earns CTB Certifications - Mobile, Alabama 3PL

BR Williams Team Earns CTB Certifications - Mobile, Alabama 3PL

BR Williams Trucking, Logistics and Warehousing Company Logo

The BR Williams team has earned CTB certifications – some of the most prestigious designations in the industry.

The CTB course was challenging but rewarding. The material provided insight into many industry topics that I had encountered but never fully understood.”

— Kenton Sprayberry

MOBILE, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, December 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — BR Williams, a complete supply chain service provider headquartered in Mobile, Alabama, has earned its Certified Transportation Broker certification from the Transportation Intermediaries Association. This distinguished certification – more than three decades old – is one widely recognized as a symbol of professionalism and quality service, and relatively few third-party logistics companies have earned it.

“It was developed over 30 years ago to increase the professionalism and integrity of the freight brokerage industry, and since that time it has evolved from exams being held at the TIA conference using blue books, too, to an online course anyone can access at home or work,” says Sean Tucker, Education Manager at TIA.

What is the Certified Transportation Broker Certification?

The Certified Transportation Broker Certification, or CTB, is a rigorous program designed to heighten professionalism and integrity of property brokerage for third-party logistics companies, or 3PLs. Through the program, which includes home-study and exam components, has been called the “most widely recognized distinction in the transportation industry.”

The program includes modules on:
• Case law as it pertains to workers’ compensation, damage claims and more
• Contracts and pricing
• General business principles, such as marketing, accounting and finance, and risk management
• Regulatory changes and how to keep up with them
• Traffic management involving best practices for claims, fleet and shipment, including international traffic management

Why CTB is Essential

The CTB certification is an essential measure of a company’s professionalism and commitment to excellence. Because the program was developed more than 30 years ago – and because it’s been through several evolutions to keep up with the most current regulations and best practices – it’s one of the most widely known and well-respected distinction in the industry.

For most 3PLs, the CTB certification provides an extra edge. It lets consumers know that the company has a broad knowledge base, tremendous professionalism and integrity, and is committed to serving customers in the most appropriate ways.

The team members who earned the CTB certification include:

• TK Bardwell
• Kenton Sprayberry
• Chris Nester

About BR Williams

BR Williams is a full-service supply chain service provider offering trucking, warehousing and logistics services. The company provides 3PL services through more than 500 flatbed carriers, 165 tractors and 625 Air-Ride van trailers, 53-foot Air Ride dry vans and more. With locations all across the southeastern U.S., BR Williams is located close to the port of Mobile, Alabama and also provides intermodal freight services, warehousing and drayage services, and more.

Fairfield City 10-Month Permit Holdup Cost Momentum Auto Group Valuable Time and Money

Momentum Auto Group

The past year has caused Momentum Auto Group to have a 10-month holdup on construction permits at their largest dealership causing setbacks in revenue.

FAIRFIELD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Fairfield City Manager tells local press that car dealerships are absolutely vital to the local economy. In fact, car dealerships may represent around 20 percent of total sales tax dollars in the area. Momentum Auto Group alone contributes $15 million annually in sales tax to Solano County. A hit to the dealerships could mean a major hit to the local economy, which is why the team behind Momentum Auto Group is doing everything they can to ensure dealerships find their footing again after a challenging financial year.

In a period when financial struggles were already stacking up against them, a 10-month holdup on Fairfield City permits cost Momentum Auto Group precious time, money, and resources. Taxes and prolonged construction fees on what should have been a quick project ended up causing serious damage to the group’s finances, halting growth and cash flow for much of the year.

Permits are a tricky matter, regardless if they are commercial or residential. However, these standard building codes are necessary to uphold safety and prevent any future catastrophes. Timing code inspections correctly and following proper construction steps with regular approval is tricky, but without it, could cause even more unpleasant situations for the business including the customers.

When there’s a halt in construction there’s inevitably a halt in operations, which can be a major obstacle when construction is on a dealership’s largest location. A range of factors can hold up city permits including a miscommunication down the line or builders not following building instructions exactly to code. When an issue is ignored and construction continues without codes being met, building inspectors will later discover problems and require resolution. At that point, it means work must be undone, progress reversed to solve an old issue, and construction workers must build their way back to the original plan before continuing.

Delays in deadlines, poor handling of documentation, missed communications, etc are all factors that contribute to this as well. Momentum Auto Group hit its own fair share of setbacks to the point that 10 months of construction holdups and the recent drop in sales necessitated a transition to new management. But they assure customers that new management will lead the dealerships into a brighter and more lucrative future.

The team behind Momentum Auto Group has a plan in place to assist guests during their transition to new management (as locations are temporarily closed). They have opened doors to a customer assistance center which helps clients facilitate the retrieval of their vehicles. They are hopeful that they will reopen doors to their dealership locations by the end of the year. This will hopefully spark a positive change for not only Momentum Auto Group, but for citizens of the town as well.

Momentum Auto Group President Rahim Hassanally Discusses Challenges and Potential in the Automotive Dealership Industry

Rahim Hassanally

Hassanally, grew a dealership into one of Solano County’s most successful auto groups. He discusses challenges in the market and the key to possible revenue.

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Though his parents ran successful hotels during his childhood, Rahim Hassanally, leader in the automotive industry, had an early exposure to car sales that altered his career path. In high school, he participated in a work study program with a local dealership where he discovered his talent for managing car sales, which would later influence him to grow a single dealership in Solano to nine county locations.

“Cars are a necessity today, almost to every citizen, so there’s always a demand for new vehicles,” says Rahim Hassanally. “But it takes a talented team to keep a string of dealerships growing and improving.”

Nine dealerships strong, Momentum Auto Group has grown into one of the most lucrative dealerships in the Solano county area. The auto group is one of the largest payers of sales tax in the county at an average of $15 million each year.
“I started off with a single dealership that housed the Infiniti and Volvo of Fairfield, and I focused on a few core principles that really helped us grow,” says Rahim Hassanally. “Our philosophy is to make the customer happy and keep expenses in line. If you do that, business will essentially take care of itself.”

Rahim Hassanally’s career hasn’t been without its setbacks, though. Many negative factors can diminish the success of a car dealership including slow seasons, buyer deviations, competing auto groups, and natural disasters.

In the event of misfortune, Rahim Hassanally urges dealership owners and employees to follow his own philosophy.
“At the end of the day, if the customers are happy then you’ve done the right thing and more than likely earned yourself a sale. The expenses have to stay in line to avoid suffering any major problems, but putting the customer first is the best business model to keep loyal buyers coming back.”

The automotive industry is under a lot of change with the advent of new searching and purchasing methods, many times cutting out car salesmen altogether that are not making the customers their priority. In the end, there’s no better alternative than a caring and dedicated sales rep, which is exactly what Rahim Hassanally promises from the team at Momentum Auto Group.
