Head Back-To-School with the Antabax Sanitizing Kit

The beginning of a new school term is just around the corner with students excited to meet their peers again, but with parents worried about the coughs, colds and other communicable diseases that are common among children.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 80 percent of all infections are transmitted by hands. Thus keeping hands clean can help to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.


For ease-of-mind, prepare kids with an Antabax Back-to-School Sanitizing Kit. It comprises a terrific trio of pocket-sized Antabax Antibacterial Cleansing Wipes, Instant Hand Sanitizer and Hand Sanitizer Spray, which will fit well in your child’s back-pack.


With good hand hygiene the risk of contracting communicable diseases such as influenza, food poisoning and Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD), among students and their families can be reduced.

REDISCOVERING THE JOY OF CAMPING

Camping is fun for everyone. It brings people together while creating memorable adventures. It is also a great way to make new friends and get to know the great outdoors. Lost World Of Tambun (LWOT), an action packed, wholesome family adventure destination recently hosted ‘Camping Under The Stars’, an annual three-day and two-night outdoor camping event to enrich the lives of children aged 7 to 12 years during the school holidays.

LWOT hosted 64 young campers, putting them through a series of activities that tested their mental and psychical capabilities. Campers had to create their own animal masks from scratch, unfolding their inner creativity to disguise themselves as one of their favourite animal. Teamwork was also put to the test with the 6th Mile Tunnel Exploration where participants had to take on a journey that challenged their senses and worked together towards the end of the tunnel!

Goodyear Malaysia Hosts Battle of The Clubs 2017 for Local Car Clubs Community

The Battle of The Clubs 2017 organized by Goodyear Malaysia is an exclusive monthly community gathering of avid car junkies from eight selected car clubs in Malaysia, featuring a series of fun team challenges. Having just recently concluded the “Time Attack” challenge, participants are currently gearing up for the next challenge called “On The Road Treasure Hunt” across Klang Valley happening this coming Sunday, 17 December 2017.

The participating car clubs are VW Club Malaysia, Satria Society, Myvi Movement, Peugeot Club Malaysia, Benzer Motorsports Malaysia, Club Audi Malaysia, The Rusted Jackets, and Civic X Community. The on-going meet-up across hotspots in Selangor, over the span of four months, has since received high engagement by the respective club members and their supporters, with the sponsor anticipating to award The Best Car Club 2017 early next year during its finale.

The competition, which is based on a points system, consists of six different team challenges in total. The car junkies are tested on their skills, knowledge, creativity, teamwork, and passion for their cars. The participants collectively enjoyed the “Time Attack Challenge” round the most so far. The round four entailed driving the Lotus Evora 400S cars fitted with the latest Goodyear UHP tire – Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. Five drivers representing each team were put into an exciting challenge to complete a course which includes slalom tests, 360º turn, a sprint back to the ending grid, and the ending with a wet braking test. Each club member’s time was tracked and added to the total team time where the club with the shortest total time wins the challenge. It was an exhilarating experience wrapped up in high spirits. This challenge has also gained numerous positive feedback on the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3. The UHP tire’s superior dry and wet grip, braking and handling performance impressed the drivers.

United Nations Honours Mobike with Champion of Earth Award

Mobike, the world’s first and largest smart dockless bikeshare company, was today named among the 2017 Champions of the Earth by the United Nations Environment, in recognition of the company’s transformative contribution to the advancement of low carbon public transport. The award was presented to Mobike Founder and President Ms. Hu Weiwei at a special ceremony during the Third Annual UN Environment Assembly held this week in Nairobi, Kenya.




VISIONARY LEADERSHIP IN ECO MOBILITY

The Champions of the Earth award is the UN’s highest environmental honour; it celebrates outstanding figures from the public and private sectors and from civil society whose actions have had a transformative, positive impact on the environment. Since its foundation 14 years ago, the awards have recognized over 80 laureates - ranging from leaders of nations to grassroots activists - in the categories of policy, science, business and civil society.

Mobike is receiving the award in the Entrepreneurial Vision category, in recognition of its achievements in applying its innovative business model to improve urban eco-mobility while addressing the challenge of urban air pollution and reducing carbon emissions. The astounding speed at which Mobike has grown into a world leading enterprise is evidence of not only of its ambitious stewardship and dedication of its hard-working staff, but also of a global readiness to embrace the green economy.




A PEDAL-POWERED GREEN ECONOMY FOR THE FUTURE

“When we first started Mobike, our goal was to change cities by making bikes available to everyone. The humble bicycle can not only change people and cities, but can also help change the world -- both as a universal symbol of peace, and as a weapon in the fight against climate change,” Hu Weiwei said upon receiving the award.



“Indeed, we believe that innovation, technology, and public participation are essential to meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. That is why we would like to invite governments, NGO’s, cities, communities and businesses to join us at Mobike - together with the United Nations - to embrace bike-sharing, and create a pedal-powered green economy for the future.”



MOBIKE SUSTAINABILITY CONTRIBUTIONS AND IMPACT

While attending the Third Annual UN Environment Assembly, Hu Weiwei also took part in a series of dialogues with UN, business and NGO leaders on practical solutions towards a pollution-free planet.

Ms. Hu introduced Mobike’s business model and innovations for sustainable urban transportation. Since its launch in 2016, Mobike has been transforming cities with its innovative solutions in urban mobility. It has done this by re-imagining and re-inventing technology loved around the world for over a century - the bicycle.

By making urban cycling more accessible, popular, and smart, Mobike is delivering scaled sustainable mobility solutions for people and cities around the world; and the benefits are impressive. Over the past 19 months since it began operating, Mobike’s 200 million users worldwide have collectively cycled over 18.2 billion kilometers, equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by more than 4.4 million tons, or taking 1.24 million cars off the road for a year.

The reason for the huge environmental impact of Mobikes is obvious: more bicycles mean less cars on the road. In early 2017, Mobike published its first bike-sharing industry white paper with Tsinghua University and the Beijing Tsinghua Tongheng Design & Research Institute. The research drew on quantitative and qualitative analysis of Mobike users’ behaviour over the last year and a survey of nearly 100,000 users across 36 cities.



The findings highlighted how the return of bikes to China’s cities is already transforming urban transport patterns and lifestyles. Bikesharing has helped double the rate of cycling, which now accounts for 11.6% of total transportation versus just 5.5% twelve months earlier.



By bringing bikes back to cities in China, and now in 11 other countries, cycling is transforming how cities work. For example, bikesharing enhances connectivity to buses and subway stations, making commuting by public transport more efficient and convenient. It also helps fill the gaps in conventional public transportation, and serves all communities, including those lacking other transportation options. More people riding bikes around their own neighbourhoods also means brick-and-mortar businesses get more exposure, which is an economic benefit in local economies.
