This former manor house is situated on a wooded hill near Kinarut above the Kawang River. The house was one of the few stone houses that existed in North Borneo. It was built of brick with white walls by an Indian architect, who used around 200–300 workers from Java. The manor house with its outdoor facilities spread over an area of about two acres. The main entrance led a 200-meter-long avenue of Greco-Roman columns. The house itself had 45 doors, 152 windows and was illuminated by 42 huge chandeliers. What remains of Kinarut Mansion nowadays are just broken pillars and bricks.

The local population living near the mansion area claimed the place is haunted with “Hantu Tinggi”, a type of Malay ghost in the form of a tall tree who is usually disguised as a normal tree in the heavy forest area. Aside from that, other passersby claimed to have seen a fast-moving apparition and hearing the eerie voice of Pontianak, a Malay female ghost at night. These claims were also supported by media crews who covering information about the mansion when they felt ‘something’ was following them through their walk in the area.

(Video) Overload With Meetings? Here Are 5 Tips To Deal With It!

Published

on

Meetings are necessary in today’s workplace. Having too many of these, on the other hand, can be hazardous. Exchanging ideas, setting goals, tracking progress, assigning duties, and other responsibilities are all part of a meeting in a conference room (or an online workspace).

While these are all good reasons to organise a meeting, having too many of them might sap your productivity. The epidemic of “schedule creep,” in which meetings take over your entire workday, is squandering time, energy, and productivity — but you can regain control. Here’s 5 tips you can apply to making your calender work for you and not against you.

Tip 1- Ask yourself

Do you really need to attend the meeting? We have the delusion that a meeting is required for everything. We believe we need to ensure that specific people are on board with something, so we convene a meeting. In fact, rather than booking a meeting, we may simply call or text for a speedy response.

Tip 2- Invite less people

Most of us ask people to meetings on the defensive and waste their time as a result. It’s time to let go of this attitude and just invite those who are required. for the goal, and the rest of the world can be informed later. According to research, inviting more people makes it less likely that you will achieve the meeting’s main goal.

Tip 3- Cut short the meetings

If you want to reclaim your time, skip the hour-long meeting. 30 to 45 minutes should suffice. People have more time to process information, plan next moves, and take a breath when meetings are shorter. And this tip will unquestionably give everyone the time they require.

Tip 4-Say no to other poeple’s meeting

We have a habit of saying yes to every meeting we are invited to, even if it isn’t absolutely necessary. We do it out of fear of being left out or simply to satisfy our ego, yet neither of these are good reasons to waste your valuable time in a meeting. If you have been invited to a meeting, a better method to decide is to ask yourself if your viewpoint is absolutely necessary for the meeting’s purpose or if the meeting would help you reach your objectives. If the answer is no, simply refuse the meeting.

Tip 5- Be ruthless with time

Taking care of yourself first is sometimes the best option. So make time for yourself to do the things you need to feel like a human being. This includes blocking out time to concentrate on your own tasks. Schedule a few days or hours in your calendar if you have a project that will take a few days or hours. So do things when it’s most convenient for you or when you’re most productive.

(Video) Booster Dose of COVID-19 Vaccine, This Is What We Know So Far

Published

on

Recently, the particular topic of booster dose for COVID-19 vaccine has taken the world by storm. According to the news, a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine is actually an additional dose of a vaccine given to people after the protection provided by the original shots has begun to decrease over time. Typically, you would get a booster after the immunity from the initial doses naturally starts to wane. The booster is designed to help people maintain their level of immunity longer. That means people all over the world would have longer immunization against COVID-19.

Although COVID-19 vaccination for adults aged 65 years and older remains effective in preventing severe disease, vaccination is less effective at preventing infection or milder illness with symptoms. Emerging evidence also shows that among healthcare and other frontline workers, vaccine effectiveness against COVID-19 infections is decreasing over time. This lower effectiveness is likely due to the combination of decreasing protection as time passes.

According to the recent Facebook post of the Ministry of Health Malaysia, they will start to administer the booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in Malaysia for senior citizens aged 60-years-old and above. The booster dose would also be given to frontline workers who have received a complete dose of the vaccine at least 6 months ago. Eligible individuals for the booster dose will be notified through the MySejahtera app. For those who do not have the app, notification will be given using text message or even call from the Vaccination Center.

A third dose of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines is actually identical to the first two doses. It can help protect people with weakened immune systems who did not have a strong enough response to the first two doses of one of the mRNA vaccines. Such people can get a third dose as soon as 28 days after a second dose. The FDA has authorized, and the CDC recommends, that those with certain medical conditions that suppress the immune system get a third dose of the same brand of COVID-19 vaccine that they initially received.

Who Can Get Booster Dose Of COVID-19 Vaccine?

1) Older Adults And 50 To 64-Year-Old People With Medical Conditions

People aged 65 years and older and adults 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should get a booster dose of vaccine. The risk of severe illness from COVID-19 increases with age, and can also increase for adults of any age with underlying medical conditions.

2) Long-Term Care Setting Residents Aged 18 Years And Older

Residents aged 18 years and older of long-term care settings should get a booster dose of vaccine. Because residents in long-term care settings external icons live closely together in group settings and are often older adults with underlying medical conditions, they are at increased risk of infection and severe illness from COVID-19.

3) People With Medical Conditions Aged 18-49 Years

People aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may get a booster dose of vaccine based on their individual benefits and risks. Adults aged 18–49 years who have underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. However, that risk is likely not as high as it would be for adults aged 50 years and older who have underlying medical conditions.

4) Employees And Residents At Increased Risk For COVID-19 Exposure And Transmission

People aged 18–64 years at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may get a booster dose of vaccine based on their individual benefits and risks. Adults, who aged 18–64 years who work or reside in certain settings may be at increased risk of being exposed to COVID-19, which could be spreading where they work or reside.
