RAVES: Many are just high on music

RAVES: Many are just high on music

THE recent deaths at the Future Music Festival Asia (FMFA) has brought forth a number of questions on substance abuse and its correlation to electronic dance music (EDM), unwittingly drawing an ugly eye towards the latter. But let's review this situation here. Are we submitting ourselves to the fallacy of reductio ad absurdum?

RAVES: Unfair to link music to drug abuse

THE deaths of six young people from drug overdose at the Future Music Festival Asia in Bukit Jalil has led to the cancellation of electronic dance music (EDM) raves in the country.

ENVIRONMENT: We should reflect on damage we've done

DESPITE our hectic schedules, it is necessary for us to spare a little time and ask what we need to do to deal with the environmental threats facing the Earth.

MANAGING INFLATION: Stop the not-so-great giveaways

MANAGING INFLATION: Stop the not-so-great giveaways

THERE are many ways to manage inflation by doing away with free gifts for purchases. While shopping, one cannot help but notice that many supermarkets and hypermarkets often give gifts with purchases. Although gifts such as plastic containers and ceramic wares are useful, it is not always practical to be giving them to all customers.

SAFETY: Make roads safe for all

IN the wake of the tragic accident that killed outstanding lawyer and politician Karpal Singh, I hope the government will undertake to improve safety on the country's highways without delay.

KARPAL SINGH: Adieu to the Tiger Of Jelutong

WHEN Lord Denning passed away at 100, the Commonwealth world grieved, but shared the joy of his justice legacy: to uphold justice without fear and favour. England lost a pioneering figurehead in judicial activism.

KARPAL SINGH: A man who dared to speak his heart

I WOKE up yesterday morning to read that Karpal Singh had died in an accident, bringing an end to a life who had given so much to the nation, not only in the political arena, but also in the courts of law, where he argued and saved many from the gallows.

KARPAL SINGH: Patriot and defender of the truth

THE sudden demise of Karpal Singh is a sad day for the nation.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: It's about long-term investment

IREFER to Dr Ahmad Ibrahim's article "Rethink cutback in R&D funds for varsities" (NST, April 7). I agree with him about ensuring enough money for varsities to conduct research, as this is a form of long-term investment for all institutions of higher learning. Research and development is what makes these institutions different from schools.
