POEMS & PROSE FOR THE LOVING HEART

Words of the loving heart sing many thousand songs, in poems and prose that may make even the hard hearted melt and the heavy hearted light and no longer strong. That has been proven by history when even the toughest one may have a gentle touch for the flowers and faunal lives and their daughters.

In this collection of poems and prose, MA Badrie brings the reader to wonders that the typical modern day hearts forgot to sense, and the mind to appreciate supple events and affairs most often taken for granted. He talks about love and affection, feelings and devotion, thoughts and inspiration. Be mesmerised by his chosen words, narrative and yet lyrical, simple and yet meaningful, softly said but impaful.

Nothing is better than serenity at hand, of calmness and being truthful. Indeed the loving heart in many of us is all these and the intense desire to be peaceful.

WATAK DAN PERWATAKAN DALAM SASTERA

Kedatangan  Islam ke rantau ini membawa bersamanya tradisi persuratan yang menggariskan tatatertib pengkaryaan yang santun dan dinamik. Tatatertib tersebut diperlihatkan melalui aspek akidah, syariah, akhlak dan jamāliyyah. Dengan kesignifikanan  sebagai konsep penting, pengkaryaan difahami sebagai ibadah yang disandarkan kepada fundamental Islam, dan mempunyai peraturan dan panduannya tersendiri. Pemanfaatannya pula menghormati kemuliaan kalamullah dan nubuwah. Tatatertib dan kesantunan inilah yang mendasari tradisi persuratan Melayu-Islam yang mencapai kemuncaknya pada kurun ke-16 dan ke-17. Namun tradisi ini dicabar dan terhakis apabila Barat menjajah rantau ini. Bagi naratif berbentuk prosa, penulis Melayu memilih bentuk Novel Realis ala Barat  dengan tumpuannya kepada yang bobrok dan hina-dina. Sastera Melayu moden lantas memperagakan penipu, pelacur, penzina, dan pemimpin korup sebagai protagonis atau watak penting. Tegasnya, sastera Melayu mewujudkan sebuah galeri penyangak atau a rogues’ gallery.  Wajarkah orang Melayu dicitrakan oleh sasteranya sedemikian rupa?  Tidakkah imej tersebut menempelak orang Melayu sendiri?  Tidakkah ia juga menempelak kegiatan pengkaryaan menurut perspektif Islam?  Dalam konteks inilah, Persuratan Baru mengembalikan tradisi persuratan Melayu-Islam melalui Novel Persuratan, yakni bentuk naratif alternatif yang membariskan watak dan perwatakan besar dan bijaksana, iaitu watak yang teguh keyakinannya, tinggi ilmunya, luhur nilainya, dan mulia pekertinya. Tidakkah citra orang Melayu seperti ini yang wajar diwariskan sebagai khazanah bangsa?

BASIC ENZYME PURIFICATION WITH WORK EXAMPLES

 

Enzyme purification is of paramount importance in biochemistry. In a single cell there is an approximately 1300 different enzymes. To study one enzyme, the other 1,299 enzymes need to be removed to obtain accurate picture of the enzyme’s function. To remove the other enzymes, a judicious use of various separation methods is needed. During this removal processes, various factors are working against the successful purification of the target enzymes. There are several enzyme purification books out there, but almost none are addressing the enzyme purification process using working examples. This is the major aim of this book; to provide a step-by-step process for the purification of an enzyme including the calculations needed to calculate enzyme activity, fold and purity and electrophoresis method to monitor purification among others. We purposely used the enzyme acetylcholinesterase as the model enzyme, as this enzyme is easily obtained from the brain of fish as well as its high enzyme activity. In addition, its substrate is easily obtained from commercial sources at a reasonable price. It is hoped that not only will this book aid researchers  but will also serve as a textbook for school teachers as an aid to teach life science.––

NARRATIVE PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING IN BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE

 

Problem-based learning (PBL) is a process of acquiring knowledge

based on the problem given. This method will give understanding

on the underlying problem. PBL improves teaching practices by

replacing traditional teaching methods. It reduces the passive

information giving process thus making undergraduate education

a platform for lifelong learning. PBL reverses the traditional

approach to teaching and learning.

 

Problem based learning is a method of teaching and learning

where the students need to be proactive in their discussion. Case

studies were given and students were required to explore from

all aspect of Biomedical Science to help them to understand the

situation underlying it. Narrative Problem-based Learning was

based on non_ction events. It was taken from the experience of

those who underwent the events. Triggers presented in each topic

were aimed to help _nal year Biomedical students to integrate

knowledge gained throughout their study in the _eld of Biomedical

Sciences.
