Nearly 100,000 fires are burning, setting up what looks to be the worst fire year in the region since 2006. The carbon emissions from the blazes have now surpassed those of the entire United States — the world’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases — on 26 out of 44 days since September, according to a report by the World Resources Institute. READ MORE ......

Action against Dengue

An encouraging number of SS20 residents showed up on Sat, 17 Oct and were roaring to start their Anti-Dengue Search & Destroy activity. 

The fight against dengue includes all possible mosquito breeding grounds not just inside our homes but also our surroundings. That is why for this round, the residents targeted common areas like the vicinity of the gerai (frequently patronized by residents and the public), near the pedestrian bridge at Jalan SS20/10 and the field at Jalan SS20/5.

On hand to help the residents were students from SMKDU and MBPJ staff and contract workers.

Also present were YB Yeo Bee Yin, Dr Abdul Ghalib Sulaiman, Deputy Director of the Health & Environment Dept, MBPJ who gave an informative talk on dengue.

Special thanks to SMKDU and MBPJ for their help and support.

Once again our appreciation and thanks to Councillor Ong Swee Long for spurring and sponsoring this activity for SS20.
