VRS-RadeR System (Virtual Rainfall Stations using Radar-Derived Rainfall Data)

Malaysia has 10 weather radar stations belonging to the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MMD) that can be used to estimate rainfall distribution. A new computer program called RaDeR ver1.0 was developed to estimate the radar-derived rainfall intensities from archived raw weather radar data. The RaDeR ver1.0 performs fast estimation more than 100 times of 3D-Rapic program currently used by MMD. Since Malaysia is a tripical country with more than 60% of land area covered by forest, using the limited number of rain gauges to determine the spatial distribution of rainfall in forested watersheds may not be representative, hence not the best technique. Therefore, a VRS-RaDeR system was developed to improve mapping of the rainfall spatial distribution using virtual rainfall stations (VRS) network and the RaDeR ver1.0 program. It was found that using the development system to estimate the rainfall distribution gives better watershed runoff result than using the traditional rain gauge data.

V-Grooving: A New Conversion Method of Bamboo Culms into Flat Bamboo Sheet

The present invention relates to the method and the apparatus for converting cylinder shaped bamboo culms into flat, solid bamboo sheets that can be further processed into various high value-added products. The culm internodes are cut in a series of V-shaped grooves at its outer-side by a special design grooving machine at a predetermined grooving interval. The optimum grooving intervals, which are the function of culm diameter, thickness and the grooving angle, are tabulated in a Grooving Table for simple operator use. Each grooving has 0.5-1.0mm depth grooving cease that serves as pivoted connector to maintain the culm intact and provides pivoted hinge function necessary for flattening process. After series of grooving being completed and the last groove is cut through, the grooved culm is opened up by hand and simply flattened under a pressing machine or clamper. The hinge function of the grooving cease transfers the vertical forces of the pressing into lateral forces that facilitate each the groove to close tightly and can be fixed become flat sheet upon they has been previously coated with certain glue. Since the flattened culm is wide and laterally straight, it can be efficiently and practically planed by a planing machine on one or both of its surfaces and then used for producing of laminated bamboo boards or planks. The advantage is that the processing steps are shorter and more efficient as compared to the conventional split-and-squaring method. Therefore, the product production cost with this method is expected to be lower than those of the conventional method. On top of that, as the machine used is small and relatively simple in its construction, this method and apparatus will be suitable for medium- and small-scales bamboo processors, especially those from bamboo producing countries such as in Malaysia, Indonesia, India, China, Thailand, and Philippines.

Use of P-32 Isotope and Phosphate Transporter for Selecting Oil Palm Genotypes with Efficiency P Uptake Ability

Phosphate is one of the crucial elements to complete the plant's life cycle. The use of phosphate fertilizer in manipulating the phosphate availability in Malaysian soils has been a common strategy by planters to improve the plant's growth. In view that phosphate resources is depleting and some environmental issues that arises due to excessive phosphate fertilizer application, a concept of "tailoring the plant to fit the soil" is adopted. We implemented two techniques to identify oil palm genotypes with better phosphate uptake ability. The outcome of the research has the implication that phosphate resources in the soil is better utilized and promotes sustainable agricultural practice. In our study, P-32 radioisotope proved to be a good method to quantify and differentiate the genotypes in taking up applied P among oil palm genotypes were observed. Next, we incorporated molecular technique to understand the uptake of P among oil palm genotypes during P-starvation. A distinct difference in expression of phosphate transporters were observed among the genotypes. These two techniques will contribute in the oil palm breeding program to identifying genotypes with better P uptake ability.

Use of A Composition comprising of Acylated Steryl Glucoside In the Manufacture of an antidiabetic, antioxidant and hypocholesterolemic Product

The invention relates to glucose lowering-, hypocholesterolemic- and antioxidant properties of GBR and ASG, which is an innovation of brown rice that has been subjected to germination. It is particularly suited for diabetic subjects whose problems include sustained chronic hyperglycemia, abnormal cholesterol metabolism and oxidative stress damage.
It is hoped that this invention will impact on the lives of diabetics and even those suffereing from other chronic diseases related to oxidative stress. We hope to develop functional foods and nutraceuticals from this innovation for diabetics as well as non-diabetics who are at risk of cardiovascular disease. Of particular importance is the fact these products will equally be useful in cases where oxidative stress is a problem like aging, Alzheimer's disease, cancers and other degenerative diseases.

Because rice is a staple diet in Malaysia, this could possibly influence the lives of most Malaysians if they consume this variety of rice. This is because of its effect on cholesterol and oxidative stress which are implicated in many chronic diseases. This could greatly reduce the burden of chronic diseases among Malaysians in view of the fact that these diseases are the highest causes of morbidity and mortality.

And since rice is also a staple diet for many people outside Malaysia, estimated at over half the population of the world, this variety of rice could provide enormous benefits to these people.This is also a pointer to the huge numbers of potential consumers of this rice variety not only in Malaysia but around the world. At the moment, similar rice varieties are only commonly consumed in Japan, and therefore there is still room for covering other parts of the world apart from Japan with the product.

Understanding Microglia: The Immune Cells of the Central Nervous System

The cellular compartment of the central nervous system (CNS) consists of neurones and glia. Whilst neurones fire electrical impluses to transmit messages, glia were classically thought to be mere 'connective tissue' of the brain. This notion no longer holds true. Astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and microglia are now known to have specific functions within the complex CNS microenvironment. Microglia are the resident macrophages of the CNS. They scavenge brain tissue, acting as sensors that monitor the well being of the CNS milieu. When the brain is stressed or injured, microglia assume an activated phenotype to launch an inflammatory attack on the assailant. To do this, activated microglia proliferate, upregulate expression of inflammatory receptors, produce inflammatory mediators and become phagocytic.
