Malaysia Amanah leader: Singapore Malays successful because not spoon fed

The Malay community in Singapore were taught by the republic's founding father to fend for themselves, said Amanah's Salahuddin Ayub.

“This is how Singapore taught their people, by giving them the rod to fish and not supply the fish every time their people needed to cook on their homes,” said the Amanah deputy president.

Lee made it so that Singaporeans had to compete based on merit rather than race, Salahuddin said before adding that many young Malays in Singapore were now in key positions in vital sectors including the military and the government.

“They are fighting to seek merits and not become a race which needs to be shown sympathy or a subsidy race, which is the practice here,” he said in his speech at the Wanita Amanah Convention here.



Celery, which has the scientific name Apium graveolens, is a vegetable in the plant family called Apiaceae, is a direct descendant of wild celery.

Celery provides dietary fibre that boosts digestion and weight loss. In addition, celery’s high percentage of water and electrolytes can prevent dehydration, and special compounds help celery to act as a diuretic and reduce bloating.
Benefits of celery include its ability to improve liver, skin, eye and cognitive health. But one third of its nutrients will be lost if celery is boiled or dipped in boiling water.

Celery supplements are mainly made with celery oil and seeds.

Celery contains antioxidants and polysaccharides that are known to act as anti-inflammatories, especially flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants. 

This makes celery useful for treating a wide range of conditions that are made worse by inflammation: joint pain (such as from arthritis), gout, kidney and liver infections, skin disorders, irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infections, just to name a few.

Liver protection
When researchers from the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at Helwan University in Egypt fed rats celery (along with chicory and barley), these rats experienced a reduction in the amount of dangerous fat buildup within the liver.

Blood pressure
Celery seed extracts have anti-hypertensive properties that help reduce high blood pressure. It is believed that celery relaxes the muscles and improving blood flow with with calcium and potassium.

Weight loss
Celery is sometimes called a negative-calorie vegetable. What this means is that celery is extremely low in calories and to digest the vege, our body uses more calories to do so.

Cure to deadly peanut allergy FINALLY found on trial

Children with peanut allergies could finally overcome the life-threatening reaction for up to four years.

Following a major breakthrough that could lead to a cure, the small clinical trial found two-thirds of children were rid of their allergy after undergoing an experimental immunotherapy treatment.

Professor Mimi Tang, from Murdoch Children's Research Institute, said they found 70% of children were able to stomach peanuts without suffering any reactions.

The kids were given a probiotic treatment called lactobacillus rhamnosus, with a peanut protein, once daily for 18 months.
