KUALA LUMPUR: Pemuda Amanah Nasional will host a roundtable meeting next month to discuss whether the Projek Perumahan 1Malaysia (PR1MA) has really benefited the people. Pemuda Amanah Nasional Housing Committee Chairman Mohamad Ammar Atan said the recent statement by Umno Youth towards the Special PR1MA End Financing Scheme (SPEF) does not reflect the burden the Rakyat is facing. "Any scheme introduced by the government must be in line with the economic reality of what the people are facing. The scheme should not leave a bad impact in the long run," he said, adding that the meeting, attended by experts from the real estate, banking industry, academicians, will discuss whether the scheme benefits the people. The outcome of the meeting will be sent to the government for a review. Ammar said although PR1MA was meant to benefit the B40 segment in buying a house, the housing scheme had raised the amount of household income for applicants.

After the recent changes in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), it seems that the interest in the scheme is picking up. Developers have started promoting their offerings in the affordable housing segment, which may sound tempting to those interested in government subsidy. Real estate has its own share of concerns, both for the end-consumer as well as an investor looking to lock in funds for a quick gain. From a delayed home possession to oversupply of units, there's a lot to tackle in such an illiquid and immovable asset class. PMAY may, however, still generate a positive response, especially if the builders live up to their promise in terms of construction quality and timely delivery. The infrastructure related to affordable housing is also something the government needs to address. Meanwhile, the subsidy in PMAY is in real rupee terms. Existing guidelines are aimed at the economically weaker section (EWS) and the lower income group (LIG) category, earning Rs 3 lakh and Rs 6 lakh per annum respectively.

"There are tests that are published for people at home to mix chemicals to test their own milk,” she says. “I thought to myself, that’s so cumbersome. People shouldnt be handling acids in their home. They shouldnt mix dangerous chemicals with their hands." In order to discover the most common contaminants, Lieberman’s team works with 18 universities throughout the U.S. The labs use High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) machines to test drugs gathered from pharmacies throughout the developing world. Notre Dame graduate student Nicholas Myers never considered what a big problem altered pharmaceuticals were before he started working on the project. "I just took it for granted that chemical analysis could happen anywhere,” Myers admitted. “I didnt know the extent to which low and middle income countries did not have the capacity to do chemical testing.

Read More: Sitting Too Much Ages You By 8 Years The study estimated that the U.S., which already lags behind other developed countries, will fall even further behind by 2030, when men and women are projected to live to 80 and 83. American women will fall to 27th out of 35 countries, from their current ranking of 25, and men will fall from 23rd to 26th. The researchers note that among rich countries, the U.S. has the highest maternal and child death rates, homicide rate and is the only high-income country without comprehensive health care. The researchers also predicted how much longer 65 year olds in 2030 would live; they guessed that among men, those in Canada would live the longest, surviving another 23 years. Among 65-year-old women in 2030, they estimated that South Koreans would live the longest, another 28 years.
