The world's largest rare earths processing plant, located in Gebeng near Kuantan, has already started producing finished products, its Australian owner said yesterday. Lynas Corporation Ltd began operating its facility last November despite environmental protests over health concerns.
A day of infamy where money has triumphed over Malaysian lives.
Yesterday evening, I was at the Malaysia Airlines Academy in Kelana Jaya for the joint meeting of the Kelana Bilingual and MAS Mawar Toastmasters Clubs. I took up the role of speech evaluator – Jamila Khan was repeating her CC manual and yesterday, she delivered her Ice-breaker speech – and I also won a ribbon for the Best Table Topics Speaker. I must mention that the meeting started nine minutes late. Overall, I would score this meeting a 5 out of a 10.
Also yesterday, Motherwell beat Celtic 2-1 in this disappointing SPL match. The former’s Chris Humphrey slammed in a close-range shot on 31 minutes before the latter leveled with a Georgios Samaras header (63). But the runaway leaders slipped to their fifth defeat of the season when Motherwell's Michael Higdon arrived at the back post to volley home on 73 minutes.
On Sunday, Celtic was in form when they blasted five goals into the net to emerge comfortable winners to Dundee in another SPL game. Skipper Joe Ledley pounced on a mistake from Dundee goalkeeper Rab Douglas to knock in the opener in the thirteenth minute, while James Forrest added a penalty following Matt Lockwood's dismissal for a foul on Gary Hooper (50). Dylan McGeouch then steered in a header (57) as the depleted visitors began to wilt. Ledley hammered in his second goal from 10 yards (73) and Gary Hooper completed the scoring with a lovely volleyed finish (83).
