How the Top 100 Malaysian Blogs is Ranked –

How is the rank calculated?

Adi has been receiving emails, forum discussion, and comments on how is this rank calculated. It is not his personal opinion but he puts a weight more on alexa ranking compared to technorati ranking. So if your ranking gets higher (drop in rank) in alexa or numbers gets higher in technorati as well, do expect that your ranking will slip as well. But there are occasion that ones goes up and another goes down, this will depend on the changes. – Adi Wong

The “STUDY IN AUSTRALIA 2009 – Explore Australia. Discover Yourself” education fair, is targeted at students and their families who are weighing up the important choice of ongoing education. The Australian Government takes a strong interest in maintaining the quality of education for Australians and international students alike. With its very sophisticated education and training system, students are not only exposed to world-class courses of study but also specialist support services. That is why more and more students from all over the world come to Australia to participate in its world-class higher education, progressive vocational education and training (VET), excellent schools and international English courses.

This year’s event is the biggest yet, with 36 leading Australian education institutions from ALL states in Australia participating in the ‘Study in Australia’ education fair on 24 and 25 October 2009 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. More than 60 representatives from Australian colleges and universities will be on-hand to provide course and career advice for students and their families.

This year we will see an increased focus on Vocational & Education Training (VET) as another pathway to gain education qualifications recognised by Australian government and employers. The National Quality Training Framework ensures Australia’s national VET system provides high quality, industry relevant training and qualification recognition. There will be four (4) of these institutions participating in our special 2-hour VET seminar to talk about workplace training in various disciplines. This will be held at 3.30pm on Saturday, 24th October in the exhibition hall itself.

Other scheduled seminars by Australian education institutions include talks on reasons to study in Australia, new directions of education and industrial expectations. There are also seminars on student visas for Malaysian and other foreign students. Like the education fair itself, admission to all seminars is FREE.

First Light – Live Blog from Study in Australia Event

Prof Peter Quinn, Director International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research – Live from Study in Australia 2009 Suntec City – Singapore

An overview of modern astronomy and our quest to find the dawn of creation…

Intro on Perth by Mike Ryan Executive Director Perth Eduaction City, as the ideal location for choosing Perth as your destination for your education – hey it’s on the same timezone, awesome lifestyle & climate and outstanding educational facilities.

Presenation By Professor Peter Quinn

Telescopes are Big Eyeballs

Born in Australia, Peter has been invovled in  astronomy all his life and has been instrumental and built the largest telescopes in the world, he recently returned to Australia to head the SKA project…

The Journey, hubble space station is now only the beginning,

Galileo took the first steps with the first telescope, Chile today however houses todays telescopes due to the clear nights, which started operation in 2002, wow the numbers for costs and demensions are awesome…,

The Milky Way… via normal sight, infra red and now radio – depending on the type of telescope used we find new beginnings… such as Planets, Stars & Galaxies.

Are we alone, the birth of new planets – astronomers are always seeking to find new planets – finding planets that are black, finding stars the “wobble” (dim) may indicate a new planet.

Jupiter is 1000 times bigger in mass than the earth… Stars are born and die (hmm sounds like hollywood)

Stars die by super nova explosions – but not all the time – oops someone skyped me and am catching up on the Black Holes – movie of the stars in the centre of the galaxy five years wow we have a black hole in our own galaxy – they think ?

Gallaxies collide –

Today we are seeing 4% of the Universe and we are trying to figure out the rest, 23% Cold Dark Matter & 73% Dark Energy

Telescopes as time machines…depending on when you take a picture and your distance it is related to time in the past – therefore what we see in the universe today is history but how to reach the First Light is what astronomers are attempting to do now.

Next big step for astronomy what astronomers have up their sleeves – The Doppler Effect and Red Shift….

The Square Kilometre Array – 3 billion it will cost and it needs to be in a quiet place – western australia and south africa are in the race to build the SKA Project.

Go Aussies Go… there is much riding on the exploration of the Universe and people like Prof Peter Quinn and his team are leading the way… not surprising the SKA Project will require the Largest ever built computer to manage and run the entire project.

In particular he is working on the nature of Dark Matter, the formation and evolution of Dark Matter around galaxies and its influences on galaxy formation. Prof-Quinn.jpgHis ultimate aim is to develop a usable theory for galaxy formation based on the insights gained from detailed modelling and state-of-the-art observations in the optical, infrared and radio spectrum.

In addition, Prof Quinn is interested in the challenges associated with large-scale, data-intensive and computational science; in particular the concept of a Virtual Observatory and research using large digital astronomical archives.
