Malaysian Firm Offers Internet Advantage To NGOs, Businesses The Network Connections (TNC), an 80 per cent-owned subsidiary of Telekom Malaysia, aims to make its presence felt as an Internet consultant. The company, which specialises in the setting up of Web sites, will lend its expertise to businesses intending to do set up shop on the Internet. TNC has already offered 50 free Web sites on Asiapac.Net to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) for a year as a social obligation; the NGOs include the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation, the Women's Institute of Management, the Federation of Malaysian Consumer Associations and the Malaysian Sociological Research Institute. According to CEO Tommi Chen, the Web sites would be beneficial in providing greater interactivity between the NGOs and the general public, especially in providing information on organisations' activities.

Comet Hyakutake

Malaysian Astronomers Use Internet For Info About Comet Hyakutake The Internet has made it possible for amateur astronomers in Malaysia and elsewhere to acquire data on the comet Hyakutake.
First discovered on January 30 by Yuji Hyakutake, the comet is being billed as the brightest to pass close to Earth in two decades. According to Malaysian Nature Society astronomical group member Looi Keng Kok, it would be quite difficult to obtain information on Hyakutake without the Net. Such information can be obtained from newsgroups ( news:sci.astro.amateur) and Web sites.

The NASA site has links to other comet-related information, and includes downloadable pictures. As an added incentive to catch the comet, Looi says, "If you happen to miss the comet this time around, scientists estimate that you'll have to wait approximately 10,000 to 20,000 years for the its next appearance."
