KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Last month, about 80 youths from various countries came together to address a serious issue which is often overlooked, namely marine pollution.

Coming from the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Indonesia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Yemen, China and Malaysia, the youths held discussions to find solutions to ocean issues pertaining to marine pollution.

They were participating in the International Conference on Youth, Ocean and SDG14 that was held at a hotel in Melaka from July 1 to 5 and was organised by World Youth Foundation, a non-governmental organisation associated with the United Nations Department of Public Information.

By Shaidathul Suhana Ros

MELAKA (Bernama) -- RM38 for a bowl of cendol heaped with dollops of Musang King durian.

Peeved at the price, one customer proceeded to upload a photo of the receipt showing RM114 for three bowls of cendol on his/her Facebook account. 

The photo soon went viral and many netizens agreed that the cendol was overpriced. But it all ended with the cendol seller concerned laughing all the way to the bank. Meet Muhammad Ariff Qayyum Mohd Zamri, the owner of a stall named Raja Cendol Taming Sari in Bandar Hilir here, whose sales tripled after the receipt spread virally sometime in February.

Can GLCs Adopt MNC Culture?

By Ravindran Raman Kutty

The writer Ravindran Raman Kutty is an award-winning communications practitioner and a fellow of the Institute of Public Relations Malaysia.

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Why can't government-linked companies (GLCs) be as successful as multi-national corporations (MNCs)? This was the question on my mind as I surfed the Internet to find out more about this topic.

My mind was bombarded with other related questions. Why is the management style in an MNC so dynamic? Why is the culture of an MNC so cohesive and encouraging?  What makes the MNC environment so inviting and customer-centric? Why is the leadership style of an MNC so dynamic and participative?

Whilst surfing the Net, I was extremely surprised to find that hardly anyone has actually done a study or considered this subject as a topic for their dissertation programme.
