A little history lesson in how these terms came about and why they are used all over the world will help to explain why they are important. Setting standards Contrary to popular belief, in most cases the progressively higher standards have usually followed technical advances in fuel quality by petroleum companies, rather than the other way around. This is just simply practical; the EU regulators can develop and implement new standards relatively quickly because the industry developments show what is feasible.

Mother Nature has done the hard work for us, figuring out how to repair, rejuvenate and thrive in harsh environments. All that’s left for us to do is pack our regimens with her best offerings. Beauty nerds will appreciate this: plant extracts are nothing new, but what scientists are figuring out is that when plants thrive in more natural environments, they deliver more powerful extracts. Using more parts of the plant, like adding stems and leaves to petal extracts, pays dividends too. So while the ingredients may sound familiar, they’re actually able to do more.

SEKINCHAN, Selangor: A crane operator carefully transferred barrels of seafood from a docked fishing boat’s deck to the Hai Seng Huat Fishery’s wharf, while customers walked gingerly on the wet floor of the fishery, making their picks. The catch was great, particularly for kembung (Indian mackerel), but for Mr Chia Tian Seng, 47, one of four brothers who founded the fishery, the weather has been a cause for concern for fishermen and middlemen over the past decade. “Normally, the wind would be constant in one direction during monsoon season, but now, the wind and the currents are unpredictable,” Mr Chia Tian Seng, who used to run his own vessel for 10 years, said. “The winds are uncertain, such that normal spots where you’d expect to have fish don’t have the same amount of catch or are even empty,” he added. Fish that would not normally be in season are caught instead. This is another change Mr Chia Tian Seng noticed. “Previously, you’d almost never get squid during ... » Learn More about IN FOCUS: Changing weather patterns a bane for Malaysia’s fishery sector

Just a year ago, I became a little obsessed about losing weight after being called a "swine" by a close friend of mine. Even though the fat-shaming wasn't meant to be harmful but a casual joke, she felt totally bad after learning it had unintentionally caused me to go on a diet. The push factor, however, was seeing my weight shoot up to 53kg and that's when I knew I had to do something about it. According to an online ideal weight calculator , "47.85kg is an ideal weight for a 155cm height female", so crossing over to the fifties wasn't a good thing. While looking up on ways to lose weight, the ketogenic diet stood out to me because of all the success stories I've been reading up on and hearing positive things about it from friends. For one, the transformation is fast and visible, and you could easily shave off about one kilo in a week from the diet. So I thought there's no harm in giving it a try. My weight did drop to 48kg after trying the keto diet, but here's why I'm ... » Learn More about I tried the keto diet and lost 5kg in 3 months – but here’s why I’ll never do it again
