政治漫画家祖纳虽然在马来西亚备受当局打压,但国际社会的声援却从未中断,近日举行的世界经济论坛其中一个环节,更出现祖纳所绘嘲讽首相纳吉的漫画。

祖纳在这幅漫画中,以美国的川普成为亿万富翁后中选总统,而纳吉则是任相后才成为亿万富翁。

世界经济论坛是在瑞士达沃斯举行,当时国际著名政治漫画家恰帕特(Patrick Chappatte)在其中一个环节主讲时,提到多个国家的政治漫画家遭到打压,包括去年“和平漫画奖”得主祖纳。

接着,他就通过大屏幕,向出席者展示祖纳上述漫画。

“这是他(祖纳)针对大马首相所画的漫画,你可能也知道,这个人(纳吉)在大马卷入一个巨大的公帑丑闻。”

“很多钱流入他(纳吉)的账户,祖纳狠狠地批评政府的腐败。”

关注祖纳被控


恰帕特也提到祖纳(见图)所面对的控状,包括在煽动法令下被控。

“他目前也被禁止出国,下周他的案件将开审。”

“仅仅因为在漫画中批评贪腐,他面对9项控状,面对被监禁43年的风险。”

这个讨论环节题为“异议的艺术”(The Art of Dissent)。

其他主讲人还包括联合国和平集会和结社自由问题特派员基艾(Maina Kiai)、《中东日报》(Asharq Al-Awsat)专栏作者米娜(Mina Al-Oraibi)、Videovision Entertainment 制作人阿南星(Anant Singh)及独立电影制作人海菲(Haifaa Al Mansour)。

虽然纳吉过去曾多次出席达沃斯世界经济论坛,但他今年并没出席,只是由贸工部长慕斯达法代表马来西亚出席。

遭提控禁出国

祖纳真名是祖基菲里(Zulkiflee SM Anwar Ulhaque),其漫画专注针砭国内政治课题,尤其讥讽政治人物的贪腐滥权。他也是《当今大马》的长期漫画作者。

不过,由于批评尖锐大胆,导致他的漫画辑屡遭当局查禁,个人甚至面对法律起诉。就在2015年4月,他就因为推文批评安华肛交案判决,而被控9项煽动罪名,面对43年牢狱风险,创下司法“新纪录”。

此外,祖纳也遭大马当局禁止出国,但祖纳已向吉隆坡高庭申请司法审核,挑战政府禁止他出国的指令。

去年12月10日配合国际人权日,多名国际著名漫画家http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/365815曾齐声呼吁大马当局,停止骚扰大马政治漫画家祖纳。这些漫画家来自和平漫画协会(Cartooning for Peace)成员。

纳吉曾多次否认涉及贪污或滥权。而总检察长阿班迪也已宣告,纳吉在一马公司案中清白无罪。

T. Harv Eker - 12 Steps To Creating A Truly Happy And Fulfilled Life In 2017



Today we want to give you something special. We’ve decided to get some insights from someone who’s a good friend of ours.

The new year can mean new beginnings, true or true? Here’s your chance to turn over a fresh page in 2017 and have one of your best years yet.

12 Steps To Creating A Truly Happy And Fulfilled Life In 2017 by Sonia Ricotti



1. WRITE OUT YOUR GOALS. 

Take the time to do this one very important and crucial exercise. What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 days? Don’t just think about it or talk about it, write it down!

Studies have shown that the simple act of taking the time to write out your goals will dramatically increase the likelihood of achieving those goals!

So write, write, write!

2. LET GO OF “WHAT WAS”. 

It’s time to let go of the past (just leave it behind). Let’s face it, you can’t change the past. In fact, the past doesn’t even exist anymore. The only place it exists is in your mind.

Let it go. Learn the lessons, look for the silver-linings, and be grateful for what “is” today and what will be tomorrow…oooooohhhhh great things are waiting for you (if you are willing to “receive” them). It’s almost impossible to “receive” anything new and great when you’re holding on to the negative stuff from the past.

LET GO and move on. It’s time.

3. FORGIVE.

Are you holding on to any resentment, anger or regret toward someone? It’s time to forgive, and again, let go.

The only person you hurt when you don’t forgive, is yourself.

Don’t let anyone rent space in your head.

Who knows why people do what they do or say what they say (sometimes they don’t even know themselves). Stop trying to analyze it and make it mean something it doesn’t. That’s just wasted energy. Just forgive and move on. Be the bigger person.

Sometimes, we need to forgive ourselves for something we’ve done or said; if that’s the case, forgive yourself and move on. No one’s perfect. We all make mistakes and have done and said things we are not proud of – let it go (as per #2 above) and forgive yourself.

Today is a new day. Choose to be the best person you can be, starting this day forward.

4. LIVE “OUTSIDE” THE BOX. 

Don’t follow the “crowd”. Most people are unhappy with their lives (according to studies). Be courageous and follow the path to your dream life (not your neighbors dream life, your parents’ dream life or society’s dream life)…this is YOUR life. YOU are the steering wheel of your life as Harv says, no one else is (unless you allow them to be).

5. ENJOY THE JOURNEY. 

Why? Because the “journey” is your life! Sometimes we focus so much on the end result or the “goal” we wish to achieve, that we are not even enjoying the journey it takes to get there. If you’re really hating the journey, then maybe it’s time to make some changes in your life and/or your goal.

6. FAIL FORWARD. 

Most people are afraid to try something new because they are afraid to fail. Remember, the most successful people on this planet failed way more than the “average” person. In fact, if you ask any super successful person, they’ll tell you how they failed A LOT!

Why did they become successful? Because, they never gave up.

Don’t ever let the fear of “failure” get in the way of living your dreams. If you fail, simply get back up, brush yourself off, learn the lessons you need to learn (that’s important), adjust your path and move forward…always move forward.

7. EAT HEALTHY AND BE ACTIVE. 

You only have this one body. Remember, if you get sick, you can’t trade it in for a new one.

What you do to your body today has a huge impact on how long you live and the quality of life you will lead in the future. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start now.

8. BE THE MOST POSITIVE PERSON YOU KNOW.

The words you use when you communicate with others, reflects your thoughts on the inside.

What you think about, you become.

Don’t get caught up in negative conversations or gossip with others. In fact, stay away from negative people altogether. They are “energy drainers”. They do not elevate you or your life. Remember, negativity is contagious and toxic — stay away from it. It will be difficult to manifest great things in your life being exposed to that negative energy.

Like Oprah says, “Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room.”

9. CREATE YOUR OWN “CIRCLE OF LIGHT”. 

Surround yourself with positive, highly evolved, loving people who elevate you.

Make it a priority that you will hang out with great, positive and loving people in 2017. Sometimes it’s hard to find those people in your immediate social surroundings, if that’s the case, step “outside the box” and go find them.

Join a fun and positive “meetup” group or a special group in your local area that focuses on “inspiration” or on a topic that revolves around living a “big” positive life.

10. LOVE MORE. Make it a priority to always come from a place of love. Whether you are standing in the grocery line, stuck in traffic, or having a conversation with a co-worker, family member or a friend, coming from this love “state” not only affects how you feel, it affects how others feel around you too.

How do you do that? Simply ask yourself “If I were coming from a place of love right now, how would I act?” and then do that.

Sometimes it can simply be acknowledging another person with a big genuine smile, giving a compliment or just refraining from getting into a confrontation when you’re placed in a negative situation.

11. GO WITHIN AND GET REALLY CONNECTED TO “SOURCE”

 (or the God of your understanding). Simply be still, be present and go within. Meditation is a phenomenal way to do that. There’s no better way to elevate your vibration, feel true inner peace and get the answers, solutions and guidance you are looking for.

AND last but not least…

12. FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT. 

Sometimes we get so consumed on the little things or we are so focused on achieving a specific goal, that we neglect the bigger and more important things in our life. Often, we don’t realize that — until it’s too late.

So what’s important?

RELATIONSHIPS – that is the most important “thing” in our lives. Don’t neglect, ignore, or dismiss the people who mean the most to you.

They won’t always be there.

Remember, life is short, don’t find out the hard way to learn this lesson (like many people do).

What do you think about this list? Can you relate to any? We want to hear from you!

看好市场租赁需求 AXIS产托4亿收购4厂房

183点看 2017年1月20日

梁洁美透露,今年仍是AXIS产托忙碌的一年,放眼收购总值4亿令吉工业厂房。

(吉隆坡19日讯)AXIS产托(AXREIT,5106,主板产托股)看好市场对旗下工业厂房资产的租赁需求,因此,今年再接再厉计划收购总值约4亿令吉的4项工业厂房。

总执行长兼财务董事梁洁美,在今天的“2016财年汇报会”提到,市场对独立式和综合厂房的需求不减,因此,公司将进一步扩大旗下工业厂房的管理规模。

“虽然市场的工业厂房成交量和成交额,有按年下跌趋势,但这只归咎于半独立和排屋式(Terraced)厂房,而市场对独立式厂房和综合厂房的需求量仍存在。”

梁洁美说:“我们所持有的资产,多为独立式和综合厂房,因此,我们有信心旗下的出租率,在新财年继续有所表现。”

AXIS产托计划在今年收购4项工业厂房,分别位于雪兰莪八打灵再也51区、雪邦、彭亨州关丹,以及柔佛努莎再也,收购总额约4亿令吉。

PDI中心年杪完成

此外,AXIS产托首个兴建和租赁资产——Axis PDI中心,工程目前如火如荼,首期厂房预计今年杪完成,明年出租予雀巢产品公司;第二期将在首期完成后动工。

梁洁美补充:“一旦完成PDI中心建设后,公司旗下管理的资产总值将达24亿令吉。”

去年8月,AXIS产托和雀巢产品公司签署兴建和租赁协议,兴建51万5000平方尺的雀巢分销中心后,再出租予雀巢产品公司,为期10年,另有2至3年的延长选择权,估计每年可为该产托捎来1922万令吉的租金收入。

脱售Eurake降负债率

AXIS产托在去年以5613万2075令吉,脱售该产托旗下唯一位于赛城的资产Axis Eureka,预计在今年首季完成脱售。

AXIS产托已持有Eurake五年,截至去年12月31日,该资产的出租率59.6%。

梁洁美指出,AXIS产托在上述脱售中赚得约120万令吉,能降低现有的负债率34.78%,至33.5%,同时贡献每单位股息(DPU)0.11仙。

“由于赛城的办公楼市场低迷,我们认为,Eurake租金在未来上涨空间有限,加上有利市价,让公司获得脱售机会。”

对于出租率低至11.94%的Axis Business Campus,她解释,目前正向数家潜在租户洽谈,出租率有望在今年能达到50%以上。

与此同时,该产托也为Axis Vista找到租户入驻,出租率能在本月,从65.31%提高至100%。

平均出租率92.03%

截至2016财年,AXIS产托共管理39项产业,比前年增加5项,总值22亿4000令吉。

其中26项产业的出租率高达100%,平均出租率则为92.03%,比前年的91.97%高。前年平均出租率是自2011财年以来最低。

空置空间仅7.97%

AXIS产托旗下所管理的资产空间总数为760万6863平方尺,目前的空置空间共有60万6585万平方尺,占总空间的7.97%。

AXIS产托今天收报1.65令吉,无起落,成交量为183万8400股。

Vehicle sales down 13% last year, its first decline after six years

Thursday, 19 January 2017 | MYT 11:31 AM
BY EUGENE MAHALINGAM

SUBANG JAYA: Malaysian automotive sales plunged 13% year-on-year to 580,124 units in 2016, its first decline after six consecutive years of growth.

Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) president Datuk Aishah Ahmad attributed the weaker sales to the moderating economy, lower consumer spending and cautious business sentiment.

Vehicle sales hit a record-breaking 666,674 units in 2015.

Going into 2017, the MAA is projecting total industry volume (TIV) to hit 590,000 units.

"Introduction of new models with the latest additional specifications, design styles and at a very competitive prices can assist to sustain buying interest," Aishah said at a briefing on Malaysia's 2016 auto sales review.

At 580,124 units, sales last year narrowly met the MAA's target of 580,000 units for 2016.

The last time TIV fell short of the 600,000-mark was in 2009 at 536,905 units. In 2010, sales hit 605,156 units.

Top Glove is still an Add at CIMB Research

Friday, 20 January 2017 | MYT 8:35 AM

KUALA LUMPUR: CIMB Equities Research is maintaining its Add rating for Top Glove as it is a key beneficiary of the stronger US$/Ringgit and a pick up in demand for Malaysian glove exports.

“Overall, we maintain our Add call on the stock with an unchanged 12-month target price of RM5.65 (based on 19 times CY18 price-to-earnings (P/E); + one standard deviation (SD) of its five-year mean),” it said on Friday.

However, the key risks to its view are the sharp weakening of US$/RM and stronger pricing competition.

CIMB Research recently brought Top Glove to visit investors in Thailand, during its Asean Corporate Day. The response to the meetings was good, as Top Glove met a total of 15 analysts and fund managers.

“The company remains bullish on prospects moving forward, which supports our view that the worst should be over for the stock and the company should record sequentially stronger earnings ahead,” it said.

Top Glove highlighted the operating environment has improved with the recent appreciation of US$/Ringgit post-Trump victory.

Furthermore, the demand for gloves has remained robust as the total utilisation rate stands at 82-85%. Another key highlight was the price revisions it implemented in 1QFY17. The ability to raise prices while utilisation rates have remained healthy signifies that pricing competition has eased.

Top Glove raised latex gloves’ average selling prices (ASPs) by an estimated 10%-13% on-quarter in 1QFY17, while the research house estimated it raised nitrile gloves’ ASPs by 4%-5%.

Despite the favourable US$/Ringgit benefitting the group, it is positive that the group is able to raise its ASPs to pass on the recent increase in raw material prices (latex: 34% on-quarter, nitrile butadiene: 26% on-quarter).

However, management did not discount the possibility of further ASP hikes given the spike in latex prices this week.

As for latex prices, CIMB Research said the latex prices at current levels are unsustainable despite the upcoming wintering period (February-April).

As the spike in latex prices can be attributed to supply shortage from floods in Southern Thailand, the supply is expected to improve going forward with reports of the floods subsiding.

Furthermore, speculative demand from a spike in China car sales is unlikely to continue into 2017, as China recently lowered tax cuts for vehicle purchases to 5% from 10% (2016)

Top Glove also touched upon its expansion plans in 2017. It plans to add 6.2 billion per annum (12%) capacity this year.

Although this looks aggressive at this juncture, management has highlighted plans to stagger the new incoming capacity to allow for better supply-demand dynamics.

“We understand that its 4.4 billion plant (due April 2017) is expected to come onboard throughout the whole year. On the other hand, the commercial production of Phase 1 of F31 (1.4bil per annum) can potentially be deferred to 1QCY18,” it said.

George Soros says Trump will fail and market's dream will end

Friday, 20 January 2017 | MYT 6:58 AM



Soros: It's impossible to predict exactly how Trump is going to act.

DAVOS, Switzerland: The billionaire investor George Soros said on Thursday that global markets will falter given the uncertainty of incoming U.S. President Donald Trump's policies.

"Right now uncertainty is at the peak," Soros told Bloomberg News at his annual media dinner held at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "I don't think the markets are going to do very well."

Stocks in the United States surged after Trump's Nov. 8 election victory. Trump takes office on Friday.

"Markets see Trump dismantling regulations and reducing taxes, and that has been the dream," said Soros. "The dream has come true."

But Trump has called for border taxes and withdrawing from his predecessor's Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, among other policies that have unclear ramifications for U.S. growth, Soros said.

"It's impossible to predict exactly how Trump is going to act," he said.

Soros, who founded Soros Fund Management LLC and now is chairman of the New York-based firm, was a large contributor to the Super PAC fund-raising group backing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and had donated to other groups supporting Democrats.

Overall, Soros said about the president-elect: "I personally am convinced that he is going to fail. Not because of people like me who would like him to fail. But because his ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory and the contradictions are actually already embodied by his advisers ... and his cabinet."

Turning to the United Kingdom, Soros said it is unlikely that Prime Minister Theresa May will "remain in power" given divisions within her government.

May on Tuesday laid out plans for Britain to negotiate its exit from the European Union. Soros said that process will be long and that "a bitter divorce" will hurt both sides.

Soros famously made huge profits in 1992 betting against the British pound as it crashed below the preset level and had to be withdrawn from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism.

China has an interest in European unity because of the bloc's importance as an export market, Soros said.

He said President Xi Jinping, who on Tuesday made a case for China's leadership in Davos, can steer his country to either a more open society or a more closed society, while nudging it to a more sustainable economic growth model.

"Trump will do more to make China acceptable as a leading member of the international community than the Chinese could do by themselves," Soros said. - Reuters
