日本辐射飘来马印 

日本辐射飘来马印 各国坚称:不会影响健康

来自福岛核电站的辐射粒子已飘散到多个国家,继邻近日本的中国、韩国外,昨日抵达菲律宾、越南,并继续向印尼和马来西亚方向转移。各国有关部门均表示,侦测到的辐射物质含量极低,相信不会影响人体健康。

韩国原子能安全技术院昨日表示,设在首尔和春川等地区的十二个放射性物质监测站,前日测到空气中含放射性碘,其中春川监测站更测到放射性铯137和铯134。当局指放射性物质的量极少,对人体无害。

菲律宾及越南亦于同日表示,在境内空气中检测到微量放射物碘131同位素。在东南亚地区,辐射云正向印度尼西亚与马来西亚转移。英国官员称在苏格兰格拉斯哥侦测到有相信来自日本核电厂的放射性碘,强调碘浓度极低。

环境局:新加坡辐射量 处安全水平

新加坡国家环境局表示,新加坡空气中的辐射量处于安全水平。

来自福岛核电站的辐射粒子飘散到菲律宾和越南,并继续向印尼和马来西亚转移,引起各国关注,不过各国相关部门都说,他们所侦测到的辐射物质含量极低,不会影响人体健康。

至于新加坡是否受到辐射物质影响,新加坡环境局今早答复说,椎间盘空气中的辐射量平均是每小时0.08微西弗(micro-sievert),处于安全水平的一般背景辐射值(background radiation level)。

“橙色警报”未解除 促民众警惕防灾

“橙色警报”未解除 促民众警惕防灾

大马气象局披露,“橙色警报”尚未解除,强风暴雨将会持续袭击全马各地,民众受促提高警惕!

大马气象局官员接受本报记者电访时指出,该局周二发出的“橙色警报”尚未解除,尤其是登嘉楼、玻璃市、吉打等地民众必须提高警惕,预防随时来袭的水灾,同时渔民也受促暂勿出海,避免遭遇不幸。

他受询时透露,近年气候变幻莫测,令人难以捉摸,然而他相信,下周天气将会开始好转。

根据气象局网页显示,截至周三下午,全马各地在来临的一周将会持续下雨。

6宗住宅区树倒

另一方面,周二晚间至周三凌晨,槟岛东北县至少有6宗住宅区树倒事件,压中停泊在旁的轿车、垃圾桶、盆栽,居民纷电召消拯队或义消队协助锯树。

据悉,东北县不少排屋式住宅区,不少在家门前数年前栽下树苗,至今长成7尺至10尺高的大树,因今次“橙色警报”,分别发现门前大树,树根早在地底腐朽,甚至部分大树被围框栽种,树根无法向横扎根,仅靠着主要树根抵挡该次豪雨强风。导致风雨后再也无法支撑树杆而倒下。

Kenyir triathlon 2011

Last call to enter this year’s Kenyir triathlon

CANADIAN Mathieu O’Halloran and Emma Bishop have confirmed their participation in the 7th Kenyir Lake International Triathlon in Terengganu from April 7 to12,

O’Halloran, who won the event in 2009, is expected to dominate this year’s triathlon offering total prize money of RM55,000.

Malaysians Shahrom Abdullah and Muhammad Hafiz Wong have also signed up for the challenge.

The triathlon, listed as an annual event in the Terengganu Tourism calendar, will coincide with the 38th Ketengah anniversary together with the Kenyir Festival.
Attractive prizes: Organisers and sponsors at the launch of the Kenyir International Triathlon.

It is organised by the Terengganu Tengah Development Authority (Ketengah).

Ketengah general manager Hamzah Ngah said they expected about 350 participants for the event.

“We have received confirmation from 186 participants. They are from 11 countries — Belgium, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Spain, England, America, Macau, Hong Kong, Thailand and Canada,

“Participants will have to swim 1.5km, cycle 40km and run 10km in the event,” said Hamzah at the launch in Olympic Hotel in KL recently.

The Kenyir Festival will have Entrepreneur Carnival, Asean Chicken competition, Jet Ski competitions, Dragon Boat Race, Terengganu Schools Brand competition, cooking competition, Armed Forces demonstration, Tomoi competition and a hot air balloon competition among the activities at Lake Kenyir.

Hamzah added that the aim for the event was to promote Lake Kenyir as a tourist destination.

“Lake Kenyir has a concept of being an Aqua-Eco gateaway. We hope the triathlon will attract more tourists,’’ he said.

The event has nine categories and the organisers have introduced a category — Terengganu Closed — for Terengganu residents.

Among the sponsors are Brooks, LeRun, PowerBar, Milo, 100Plus and Ice Mountain.

Entries close on April 1. For more information, visit www.triathlonmalaysia.com or call Chan Chee Seng at 012-225 3243.
