Consumerist: Mustapha Mohamed Right But When Talent Is Not Recognised, Rewarded, Retained – Will They Stay?

‘If not we will continue to with double portions of naked hypocrisy continue to highlight in our media, the international and global achievements of talented Malaysians who have left us for foreign land in frustration and because of non-recognition of their talent in Malaysia!

In the new country of adoption, they have three R there – recognition, rewarding and retention!’ – Datuk Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Mustapha Mohamed Right But When Talent Is Not Recognized, Rewarded, Retained – Will They Stay?

This is said many times before but never accepted as brokers, and race supremacist and other political shenanigans manipulate everything from education and policy decisions to market research findings and now in more clandestine maneuver even plot against minority religious and race issues!

So I am glad that dear friend, Minister of International Trade and Industry, Mustapa Mohamed has stated what many of us have been saying for decades that if Malaysia wants to move up the value chain rapidly, beyond manufacturing and production, to remain sustainable we need to look at leaders with new mindsets, fresh competencies and specialized skills.

That we should be able to identify global opportunities to take us up the value chain not just fill up Malaysia with unskilled, notorious even criminals from foreign lands just because a ‘sitting MP’, political broker or insider wants to make millions in foreign workers commission!

If not we will continue to with hypocrisy continue to highlight in our media, the international and global achievements of talented Malaysians who have left us for foreign land in frustration and because of non-recognition of their talent in Malaysia!

In the new country of adoption, they have three R there – recognition, rewarding and retention!

Here, what do we have?

I will tell you a little – ‘hari ini dalam sejarah’ type of story!

‘A big time effort invited a very talented globally trained and working Malaysian to revamp their ‘pharma division’ which was going down the drain losing millions!

It will be a two year contract, turn around the company put it on international footing in all aspects, and then leave for a local politically appointed individual to take over for cosmetics reason!

In other words, we could use a local ‘peribahasa’ for it as being a ‘Lembu punya susu sapi nak nama’ type of scenario which is ‘biasa’ here!

She told them to go screw themselves!

In such background, I think my dear friend, Mustapa Mohamed wish may never come true!

More so, when you have another Minister making a fool of himself on a similar subject as if we are not aware what is the real motives of these statements!

‘Not happy with the country’s education system? Send your kids overseas, says minister ‘

                           

Consumerist: No Silver Bullet To Arrest Costs Of Living Issues In Malaysia!

Consumerist: No Silver Bullet To Arrest Costs Of Living Issues In Malaysia!

There is no ‘silver bullet’ to solve the problem of escalating prices of good!

The only answer was for all quarters to cooperate on this to ensure the people’s standard of living was not drastically affected.

When prices of essential goods go up, so does the cost of living. However, the people should not be griping about this as there are many ways to reduce daily expenditure.

When shopping or going to eateries, consumers must be in control. In other words just boycott shops that charge too much or do not follow prices set by the government for controlled items!

                           

 

Consumerist: MH370 – Can We Have The Truth Please?

Dato Jacob George

‘I meet many of those who have lost loved ones on that plane in church, our eyes meet, we look deep into each others eyes and feel the loss, pain and emptiness.

If only words express the loss!

This is indeed cruel and we have enough of the fanfare and photo shoots thank you!’

Strange things are beginning to emerge when authorities go on a spin and say that wreckage of MH370 could possibly be washed ashore to Sumatra!</p>
<p>Even stranger when up to now we have had a global concerted effort to position the last sightings of the same plane further south?</p>
<p>Now all of a sudden - it has moved back or has it?</p>
<p>Is it time those who already have had the answers have the decency, dignity and political courage to come clean for God's sake and for those still hurting having lost loved ones!</p>

<p>Can the truth be told for once?</p>
<p>Or is it really true as a friend alerted me by this statement:</p>
<p>'Maybe this plane did not crash on March 8th but rather it landed safely somewhere and then was ditched into the ocean on March 16th. No way plane parts of this size would float for more than a few hours after an accident which leads me to conclude this photo may have been taken a short time after this aircraft, if indeed an aircraft, impacted the water.'</p>
<p>He was indeed referring to possible photographic evidence of wreckage of MH370 off the coast of Sumatra. He had included links too and if true we are dealing with a major cover-up that makes the Watergate Scandal look like a child's play!</p>
<p>By the way, what was indeed in the plane's cargo haul?</p>
<p>Can we finally have a straight answer instead of high powered bullshit!

Consumerist: MH370 – Between Administrative Bullshit & The Truth!

Dato Jacob George

‘So far we have had a media carnage, administrative bullshit, incompetence, idiocy and all forms and variations of conspiracy theories that further pained the next of kin who are still struggling to find answers to help them move forward and bring calm to their lives which can only come with the truth!’ – Dato Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: MH370 – Between Administrative Bullshit & The Truth!

It has been seven months.

So far I cannot but agree with dear friend, Sir Tim Clark that:

It’s anybody’s guess who did what. We need to know who was on the plane in the detail that obviously some people do know. We need to know what was in the hold of the aircraft. And we need to continue to press all those who were involved in the analysis of what happened for more information,”

From the onset, I have taken the position that all data available must be challenged and examined with full transparency.

I have again from the onset had difficulty with the official mantra that Flight MH370 flew south over the Indian Ocean on autopilot for five hours until it ran out of fuel and fell out of the sky, killing all 239 passengers and 12 crew members on board.

Among the proposal from this tragedy I pray that lessons have indeed been learnt and that the said aircraft manufacturers would find a way to make it impossible to disable Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) from the flight deck.

So far we have had a media carnage, administrative bullshit, incompetence, idiocy and all forms and variations of conspiracy theories that further pained the next of kin who are still struggling to find answers to help them move forward and bring calm to their lives which can only come with the truth!

So what will it be?
