Look at the picture, actually UK and Malaysia are similar LOL :p



Unintentionally captured this picture when had a flat viewing few days ago. Some similarities are:

1) UK has Proton, we also have :p

2) Same street view, as in my home town

3) Similar road condition, I am wondering are we learning/using the same “recipe” haha..

Food Security—series of interesting papers


Excerpt of my report:-

Abiotic stresses such as extreme temperature, drought and salinity as well as biotic stress like pathogen infections significantly affect growth and reproduction of plants. This environmental constraint is one of the major factors account for low productivity and quality in corps and has worsened food security issue faced today. For instance, developing countries in which more than 800 million people are short of food supply and 1.3 billion individuals living less than USD 1 a day. Furthermore, an estimated human population rise from 6.1 billion to 9.3 billion in year 2050 indicates that an additional 50% of food production is required in order to maintain food supply (Flowers, 2004). Therefore, understanding the mechanisms of stress tolerance in plants and developing stress tolerant crops are essential to overcome a potential food crisis.
