Dr M backs English languageVia the Star
PETALING JAYA: Mastering the English language will not make one less patriotic, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“People should accept the fact that English is currently the language of knowledge,” he said.
He said the Internet came with various languages but English was still the main language on websites.
Dr Mahathir, who initiated the change to use English for teaching Science and Mathematics, said the two subjects should be taught in English as most of the information and research were written in the international language.
“You cannot rely on someone to translate the latest information for you as it changes every minute.
“If you master the language, you can acquire the information by yourself and search for the information that will benefit you,” he said in a talk on Impact of Technology on the Future of Higher Education at a hotel here yesterday.
Separately, in his blog posting on Monday, Dr Mahathir wrote that the Malays had not gained for themselves the 30% target in corporate ownership.
“In the political field, the Malays appear to be in control.
“Most of the high posts, such as PM and MB, are held by the Malays. If these posts are held by the Chinese, then not only will the economy be under Chinese control but the political arena will also be under the Chinese,” he said.
However, he said the Malays were also at fault for not making correct use of the opportunities created for them under the New Economic Policy which had been around for nearly 40 years.

There is a quote by Alex Kroll which I find hilarious but is meaningful, he mentioned that Getting ideas is like shaving: if you don't do it everyday, you're a bum.
So, avoid being a bum and be more proactive. Contribute what is in your head, if you have one that's worthy enough.
I hope you wont need this

Adjudicating debates aint easy after all as compared to debating itself. I would rather be debating rather than sitting on the other side of the room, evaluating. Well, the yearly affair went on smoothly but this year (alhamdulillah) , but the organizers left out many things due to budget matters. Hopefully by next year, they’ll be able to string the pieces back together and arrange the flow accordingly.
The issue that is left to say is regarding the contestants. In ANY game, there’ll be teams that will lose and win. As a human being, you face your ups and downs and at times you must accept your fate. It doesn't mean that if you are from a 'certain prestiguous' faculty your team ought to win. Judges do not come with a preconceived mindset okayy.. There were groups with confidence and the master of language but you sometimes need to reflect on the utmost important thing in a debate is how you present your points. It is useless, even if you have a native-like English accent but you present ideas that aren’t concrete and the group tends to shift from one mechanism to the other. You need to have a balance in language, content and organization.
Here are some tips for future debaters; firstly you need to understand the motion and know what you are talking about. You also have to present points clearly and steadily-meaning that you need to get your facts right and be clear with your presentation. The whole team also needs to know their roles, i.e; the first speaker needs to define the motion, and the 3rd speaker needs to rebut.
In order to differentiate a good debater and a mediocre debater is that a good debater will avoid reading (the prepared speech) as need to think your own feet and try to explain the fact as though you are the master of it. Normally experienced debater will end on time and they will end after 30 seconds after the 1 minute warning to show their respect to time. Good debaters are also ones that are intelligently humuorous and entertaining. There’s a vast difference between a debate that is serious (dull) and one that is lively (entertaining).
Here’s a slideshow about debating that I found online.
Hopefully, future debaters will understand what debating is and control their emotions eventhough they fail to win the round. Winning is not everything.. There’s no use for being upset and blaming other people for your loss. Sometimes you just need to look at things from other people’s point of view in order to become better. All in all, debates are supposed to encourage you to instill positive insights and not demotivate you. That’s why, as a debater you learn to be matured and learn look at things in different perspective. At times you need to know that sometimes you can't get everything that you want.
I'll leave you with some pics from the debate.

IT IS disconcerting to note that several hundred talented students leave Malaysia every year, and the trend is not changing.
Measures have been taken but the problem remains.
The remedies which have been applied have not brought positive results.
The Asean Scholarship attracts a significant number of outstanding students to pursue their studies overseas every year.
Besides, most of the prestigious universities around the world also offer a wide range of financial aid and scholarships to international students.
Local universities must seek to increase their international recognition.
By doing so, there’s no excuse, reason and benefit for students to leave the country as their aims can be achieved here.
Pointing at students and condemning them for leaving their country won’t bring positive results.
The application of “law and bond” doesn’t look very successful too.
Local universities should compete with overseas universities for outstanding students, just like how the students compete to secure a seat in a prestigious university.
Every student hopes that he/she can receive the best education without having to leave their home, family and country.
