Top 10 of Malaysia Company

...Top 10 of Malaysia takes a brief look at some top Malaysian companies on the back of trials and tribulations experienced on a global scale last year. In 2011 many countries have been hit by challenges brought about by natural disasters, financial crises and political upheavals. Malaysia, as an emerging market, is expected to be still attractive to many investors, be they local or foreign. The start of 2012 has brought with it a myriad of new aspirations and resolve for companies in Malaysia. Maybank remained the company with the highest market valuation on Bursa, standing at RM62 billion while CIMB, at the number 2 spot in December 2011 with a market valuation of RM55 billion then, went down to the 4th spot on the current list after shedding some RM4 billion in market value. It was upstaged by Sime Darby and Petronas whose market valuations stood at RM55 billion and RM53 billion respectively. Maxis and Genting too, stood above Axiata which retreated about RM2 billion in its market value. Petronas hopes to improve its bottom line where natural gas is concerned with the operation of its gas import terminal at Melaka which is scheduled to be in operation in August this year and the acceptance of its proposal for a gas pricing mechanism. JCY International, a hard disk drive manufacturer, is again the top company in the technology sector with a market capitalisation of RM2.7 billion.

Top 10 Risks in

...Top 10 risks in telecommunications 2012 About this report As the challenges and opportunities facing telecoms operators around the world continue to evolve, the sector’s risk universe is changing rapidly. And as companies formulate and execute their strategies to sustain and grow value in today’s fastmoving environment, they have to ensure that their understanding and management of risk keeps pace. Today, navigating through the sheer speed and scale of change presents challenges for all operators. We have produced Top 10 Risks in Telecommunications 2012 to help them map out the right path. This is the latest in our ongoing series of studies designed to pinpoint the most critical risk issues, analyze the sector’s evolving responses and highlight elements of emerging best practice. As in previous reports, we do not claim that the list of risks we present here is comprehensive. Also, by its nature, it can only provide a generalized snapshot of the risks that we — and the sector as a whole — see at this time. Given this, we would encourage you to read this report with an open mind and inquisitive attitude. Are these really the risks you face in your own business? If not, how and why are your organization’s risks different? And how do those particular risks impact you? The answers inevitably vary from company to company. But in every case, we believe that leaders should take the following steps: • ......

Top 10 Greatest Inventions

...Top 10: Greatest Inventions Of All Time Inventions are pretty useful things, in fact, inventions are very useful things. People are inventing new things all the time - unfortunately, the vast majority of inventions tend to be utterly useless; but every now and then someone comes up with something that completely changes the world and it is these few ideas that this hub is about. Now, there are, undoubtedly many equally great inventions as those on this list, but unfortunately it's had to be cut down to just 10. Things such as language have been omitted from this list for, while they are, indeed, quite useful, they were more developed out of necessity than invented; the same applies to fire - it has always been present on this earth, all we did was work out how to create it on a whim! So what are they? Read on.... 10 - The Wheel: I know what you're thinking: "what, those round things?" well, the short answer is "yes", the long answer: "yes it is". Point is, the wheel is the simplest invention in the universe - you need only scoop up a handful of mud, pat it into a circle and leave it in the sun to dry! So what's so great about it? Well, almost every land vehicle in existence uses wheels as do many many other things like anything with a belt drive (car engines, conveyor belts etc.) In fact, life would be pretty hard without it - but not impossible. The Incas and Aztecs, for example, despite coming up with fully working calendars and a vast knowledge of astronomy, didn't use......

Top 10 Disadvantages to Capitallism

...There has been much discussion of the current economic system in the western world, capitalism. This is mainly because of the growing anti-capitalist movement. However, as the owners of the free media are the wealthy, the anti-capitalist side of the debate has not been fairly covered. This list is not to suggest a viable alternative, although there are many. It is merely to cover the disadvantages of the current system, which have often been ignored by the media and governments. 10 Inequality The common capitalist mantra that “anyone can be rich if they work hard enough” is a fallacy. There’s only so much room at the top. In order to make money, first you have to take it from someone else. This can be done through selling things, taxation or any other means. But this means that the rich cannot exist without the poor. Any way you look at it, there’s never going to be equality under capitalism. 9 Waste In a society where resources are not evenly distributed, there is always going to be the wealthy who have an excess of resources. While occasionally these resources are given to the poor, often this excess is wasted. Millions of dollars worth of food is wasted by those who have more than they need, while there are many others who desperately need it. 8 Starvation Of course, if some have an excess of the resources in society, there are others who do not have enough. In Third World countries, many are starving because they cannot afford to feed themselves, while......

Jrpgs Top 10 Composers

...10. TAKEHARU ISHIMOTO Representative Music: Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII; The World Ends With You; Final Fantasy: Dissidia Takeharu Ishimoto starts off our list of great composers. His talent for creating original and eclectic pieces is impressive to say the least. His score for The World Ends With You exposes his genius for variety, with songs like "Long Dream," "Calling," and "Fighting For Freedom," funky, urban pieces that mix rock, rap, and dance beats. In contrast to this his work for Crisis Core is darker and more pensive, showcasing pieces like the acoustic "Under an Apple Tree," and the jammin' "Wandering in a Sunny Afternoon." And let's not forget his theme for Final Fantasy: Dissidia, an orchestrated bonanza or winds, percussions and brass. To be that diverse is impressive indeed. 9. YOKO SHIMOMURA Representative Music: Kingdom Hearts series; Parasite Eve; Legend of Mana Yoko Shimomura is the lone woman on this list, beating out the likes of talented lady composers like Michiko Naruke (Wild Arms)and Chikayo Fukuda (.hack//G.U.) for a top spot. It's a testament to her talent that she can hang with the guys. Her style can range from melancholy to intense, from soft piano to rocking guitar. Songs like "Dearly Beloved" and "Night of Fate" from Kingdom Hearts have become fan favorites in the JRPG world, and many still remember the riveting "Arise Within You" and "Under the Progress" from Parasite Eve. Her music is definitely worth checking out. 8. MASAHI......

Therefore, it is important to understand the environment deeply before reflecting such laws, in order to meet security goals aimed by the owners. 1 Introduction It is proven that analysis of a system the key factor for successful management. These systems are collection of functional and non-functional components that work inherently to meet the strategic objectives of the enterprise. For that, it is important to control relations and processes among such components. Without providing an acceptable security level, all of these components are facing various risks. These risks are hard to be migrated to an acceptable level without good security management. This paper is aimed to urge the top 10 laws of security in any system. Each of which should work with collaboration of the others to gain sustainable framework and robust integration to secure the enterprise. 2 First Law: Security is a process, not a product This law is the conclusion of Bruce Scheiner’s well known book “Secrets and Lies”. It is predicted result the should be taken as the first law. Most of decision makers handle with security as being a product that is more powerful and competent to use with other products. Therefore, technology is the real driver of such people, and they are following technology updates for anti-malware, IDSs, Firewalls…etc. Such idea about security minimizes the efforts of correct security implementation, causing end users......

Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns are used to obtain systematic collection of information about the current health status, promotion of health and prevention of illness for each family member. Here is introducing a family health assessment done using Gordon’s functional health pattern in a family consists of 40 years old father, 38 years old mother, 8years old boy and 5 years old boy. Health Perception and Health Management Pattern: In this family health is perceived as the full capacity of a person to perform daily activities without any problems.

Health Assessment

...state that infectious organisms can harbor and spread by health care workers who touch the patients while providing care. Appropriate hand hygiene is basic to patient health and safety and is the most cost-effective way to decrease bacteria transfer. Barrett & Randle (2008) also state that the prevalence of healthcare-associated infections which are acquired by patients during health care, investigation or rehabilitation in a hospital or community setting can be reduced by effective hand hygiene decontamination. So hand hygiene is an important way to prevent infectious diseases in health care facilities. In my vital signs assessment video, I performed hand hygiene before and after touching the patient, I think it is an essential measure to prevent transferring bacteria and viruses between me and the patient and keep the patient under a clean and safety environment. I will keep performing hand hygiene in my future career. Another positive aspect of my performance in the video is my off task communication with the patient. Normally, I think the nurses are very busy by taking care of many patients in the ward, so they may not have enough time to communicate with their patients for every time. As a reason of this, some patients may feel lonely and neglected by the nurses, and they may not likely to open their mind and talk to the nurses about their need or feeling which can lead to a negative impact on the quality of health care. Jasmine (2009) states that it is very essential......

Gordon’s11 functional health patterns are; health perception/ health management, nutrition, pattern of elimination, activity/ excerise, cognitive, sleep/ rest, self perception/ self concept, roles/ relationships, sexuality, coping/ stress and values/ beliefs. By using these categories it’s possible to create a systematic and standardized approach to data collection and enables the nurse to determine the following aspects of health and human function (Kriegler & Harton, 1992). I have completed a family assessment on the Semanovich family using the 11function health patterns created by Gordon. I assessed the family by asking question from each category of the functional health patterns and will briefly discussion my findings in this paper. Health perception and values are focus on the individual’s perception of their health and their beliefs and values (Edelman, 2010). The health perception of the Semanovich family seen to be center around maintaining their current health by annual checkups, immunization for the kids and eating healthy. Eating...
