Four out of five Form One students interviewed watch porn

At least 80% of Form One students in Hilir Perak surveyed have admitted to watching pornography online. This was the outcome of a study conducted by the National Anti-Drug Agency (AADK) on secondary schools in the district. AADK district assistant officer Rosmawati Mokhyiddin said the situation was worrisome and the issue had to be addressed. She said 40 students in the high-risk category were interviewed. Some admitted to hiding drugs in their school bags, while others lied to their parents, saying that the illegal substances were for educational purposes. "The saddest part was that some parents, especially senior citizens, had no knowledge about drugs and believed it," she said.

 

> Female trailer driver undaunted by gender discrimination

Rokiah Salim, a female trailer driver in a male-dominated industry, has refused to bow to gender discrimination and harassment. The 51-year-old said her career was exciting although harassment is a problem. "Once I was in Seberang Perai and a group of drunk men appeared in front of my trailer, blocked my way and started to hurl foul words at me. A van happened to pass by and the driver chased them away," she said. The mother of two sons said she enjoyed the job because it offered flexible working hours and high pay. "Monthly income is at least RM4,000 and if you are hardworking, you can earn up to RM7,000," she said. Rokiah recently garnered attention in social media after she uploaded a video about her career onto Facebook. She explained that the video was meant to inspire others, especially youths, to take up the job commonly perceived as difficult and dangerous. "A lot of graduates are too picky and they end up being unemployed. There are so many jobs out there including driving a trailer. Give it a try instead of relying on your parents for money," she advised.
