    Although this paper makes a special appeal to workers in Malaya it will be found interesting and instructive by the many medical men elsewhere who have been perplexed by the confusing nomenclature of rats and related animals. The author describes the following, which are the six common house and field animals of Malaya popularly called "rats ". A. Rodentia: Muridae. (1) Rattus rattus (Sp. R.r. diardi; R. r. argentiventer; R. r. jalorensis. (2) R. norvegicus. (3) R. exulans. (4) Mus musculus. (5) Bandicota bengalensis. B. Insectivora: Soricidae. (6) Suncus caeruleus, the musk shrew which is grossly slandered by being called a rat; it is an insectivore and the author states that there is no evidence of its being concerned in the transmission of any disease. A clear description is given of the habits, external appearance, skull characters, and association, if any, with disease, of each of the above animals. The animals chiefly concerned in the transmission of disease in Malaya are stated as being R. r. diardi (murine typhus), and R. r. argentiventer, (scrub typhus and probably leptospirosis). Plague is not occurring at present in Malaya. Medical men in Malaya are fortunate in being provided in this and other papers with simple practical guides to the local fauna which are important from the public health point of view.

    Di dalam kertas ini, pendekatan dalam mentakrifkan ketakpastian titik data melalui pendekatan konsep nombor kabur yang sedia ada dapat diitlakkan. Pengitlakan ini termasuk pentakrifan ketakpastian data yang akan menjadi titik data kabur (titik kawalan kabur) selepas ditakrifkan oleh konsep nombor kabur. Kemudian, kajian ini juga membincangkan tentang proses pengkaburan (operasi potongan-alfa) terhadap titik data kabur tersebut dalam bentuk segitiga nombor kabur diiringi dengan beberapa teorem dan juga pembuktiannya. Selain itu, kami juga turut memodelkan titik data kabur tersebut melalui fungsi lengkung yang sedia ada iaitu fungsi lengkung Bezier. Selepas itu, turut dicadangkan juga ialah proses penyahkaburan terhadap titik data kabur selepas operasi potongan-alfa diimplementasikan bagi memperoleh penyelesaian titik data kabur rangup sebagai keputusan akhir yang turut dimodelkan melalui fungsi lengkung Bezier dengan disertai beberapa teorem bagi memahami bentuk data tersebut.

    Kajian ini bertujuan untuk mengenal pasti model statistik terbaik bagi mewakili set data melampau untuk salah satu bahan pencemaran udara iaitu zarah terampai (PM10). Data dari enam buah stesen pengawasan kualiti udara di sekitar Lembah Klang dari tahun 2009 hingga 2011 digunakan dalam kajian ini. Dalam penentuan taburan terbaik, taburan parametrik dan taburan tak berparameter telah diuji. Dua siri data melampau yang digunakan ialah siri data maksimum bulanan dan siri data melangkaui ambang bagi PM10. Seterusnya, dua taburan parametrik iaitu Taburan Melampau Teritlak (GEV) dan Taburan Pareto Teritlak (GPD) masing-masing dipadankan kepada siri data maksimum bulanan dan siri data melangkaui ambang. Kaedah penganggaran parameter L-momen dan ujian kebagusan penyuaian Anderson Darling digunakan dalam pemilihan taburan parametrik terbaik yang juga menentukan kaedah pemilihan data melampau yang mana lebih baik. Bagi kaedah tak berparameter, penganggaran fungsi ketumpatan kernel (KDE) digunakan untuk menentukan taburan terbaik PM10 melampau. Hasil pengiraan ralat min kuasa dua (MSE) mendapati taburan tak berparameter merupakan taburan terbaik bagi data melampau PM10 di kebanyakan stesen kajian. Taburan terbaik bagi setiap stesen kajian seterusnya digunakan bagi menghitung tempoh ulangan PM10 yang sangat berguna bagi pihak yang terbabit.

    The cell membrane is a protective layer that strictly controls the passage of molecules restricting the delivery of biomolecules such as drugs, oligonucleotides, peptides, and siRNA into the cells. This shortcoming has been overcome by the discovery of Cell-Penetrating Peptides (CPPs) that has undergone 30 years of evolution. To date, CPPs are largely modified to improve its efficacy and to suit the different delivery applications. The modes of CPPs penetration are still an unresolved mystery and requires further investigations to increase its effectiveness and to diversify its use. Despite having huge potential as a biomolecule carrier, CPPs also have some drawbacks. In this review, the natural and synthetic CPPs, the modifications that have been conducted on CPPs to improve its efficacy, its extended applications, modes of penetration and limitation as well as challenges will be discussed.

    Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) systems are crucial in industry to ensure safe and reliable operation, especially of motor drives. This paper proposes the use of multiple controllers for a FTC system of an induction motor drive, selected based on a switching mechanism. The system switches between sensor vector control, sensorless vector control, closed-loop voltage by frequency (V/f) control and open loop V/f control. Vector control offers high performance, while V/f is a simple, low cost strategy with high speed and satisfactory performance. The faults dealt with are speed sensor failures, stator winding open circuits, shorts and minimum voltage faults. In the event of compound faults, a protection unit halts motor operation. The faults are detected using a wavelet index. For the sensorless vector control, a novel Boosted Model Reference Adaptive System (BMRAS) to estimate the motor speed is presented, which reduces tuning time. Both simulation results and experimental results with an induction motor drive show the scheme to be a fast and effective one for fault detection, while the control methods transition smoothly and ensure the effectiveness of the FTC system. The system is also shown to be flexible, reverting rapidly back to the dominant controller if the motor returns to a healthy state.

    Since its conceptualization in 1854, 29 species of the colubrid genus Stegonotus have been recognized or described, of which 15 (admiraltiensis, batjanensis, borneensis, cucullatus, derooijae, diehli, florensis, guentheri, iridis, heterurus, melanolabiatus, modestus, muelleri, parvus, poechi) are still considered valid today. Original species descriptions for the members of this genus were published in Dutch, English, French, German, and Italian and, perhaps as a consequence of these polyglot origins, there has been a considerable amount of confusion over which species names should be applied to which populations of Stegonotus throughout its range across Borneo, the Philippines, Wallacea, New Guinea, Australia, and associated archipelagos. In addition, the terminology used to notate characteristics in the descriptions of these forms was not uniform and may have added to the taxonomic confusion. In this paper, we trace in detail the history of the type specimens, the species, and the synonyms currently associated with the genus Stegonotus and provide a basic, species-specific listing of their characteristics, derived from our examination of over 1500 museum specimens. Based on our data, we are able to limit the distribution of S. modestus to the islands of Ambon, Buru, and Seram in the central Moluccas of Indonesian Wallacea. We correct the type locality of S. cucullatus to the Manokwari area on the Bird's Head Peninsula of West Papua, Indonesian New Guinea and designate a neotype for S. parvus, a species likely to be a regional endemic in the Schouten Archipelago of Cenderawasih Bay (formerly Geelvink Bay), Indonesian New Guinea. We unequivocally identify and explain the problematic localities of the type specimens of S. muelleri and Lycodon muelleri, which currently reside in the same specimen jar. We remove L. aruensis and L. lividum from the synonymy of S. modestus and recognize them as S. aruensis n. comb. and S. lividus n. comb., respectively. We remove S. keyensis and Zamenophis australis from the synonymy of S. cucullatus and recognize them as S. keyensis n. comb. and S. australis n. comb., respectively. We further remove S. reticulatus from the synonymy of S. cucullatus, S. dorsalis from the synonymy of S. diehli, and S. sutteri from the synonymy of S. florensis. We designate lectotypes for S. guentheri, S. heterurus, S. lividus, and S. reticulatus. Lastly, we introduce S. poechi, a valid species not mentioned in the scientific literature since its description in 1924. This brings the diversity in the genus Stegonotus to 22 species. We also caution that in a complex group of organisms like Stegonotus any rush to taxonomic judgment on the basis of molecular and incomplete morphological data sets may perpetuate errors and introduce incongruities. Only through the careful work of connecting type material with museum specimens and molecular data can the taxonomy and nomenclature of complex taxa be stabilized.
