Interview by Andrew Octavian

Track and field is a form of sport which combines running, jumping, throwing, and a whole lot of energy. We managed to ask some questions about this sport with one of the captains of the IMU Track and Field team who is actively involved in the field of sports. Check out what Kok How (in green in the picture below) has to say about some questions regarding this sport and how it is around IMU and Malaysia.

Interview: Tracking the Fields with Kok How

______________________________________________________________________________

What is Track and Field to you and how do you keep yourself motivated in delving into this field of sports?

Track and field is a test of determination, dedication, will power and courage of individuals. Athletes go through strenuous training which is physically and mentally demanding, not to mention time consuming. I also believe in hard work, and that those who have respected the training and honoured their commitment will cherish the results.

The reason why I run is quite simple really. I enjoy the satisfaction and the achievement I get from it, there’s all there is to say. It can be difficult to just aim to be successful, so I set targets every year and work hard to achieve them. That way, I not only shorten the gap to be successful, I also improve every time.

 

How is the team doing and what are your activities throughout the year?

The MAPCU competition is usually during the middle of the year, and we start training around February. Training is light at first, and it gets progressively tougher as we close in to the competition. Currently we train 4 times a week, resting on a weekday and on weekends. We’ve ran on the track, we’ve tread on numerous road, we’ve even crossed on sandy terrains and conquered many hills. We also alternate our trainings with beach volleyball, workouts with improvised equipment, and sometimes you will see us around IMU doing our core workouts.

IMU MAPCU Track & Field team has always been known to have the strongest team spirit. We go in with our heads held high, and win or lose we come out together stronger than ever. With talented athletes who come on board and the iron-willed dedication of the team, we are among the favourites of winning the competition.

 

What was it like to be a non-professional athlete to make it all the way to the finals of the competition you participated in?

I recently joined this competition called All Comers Meet, taking part in the 400m. The event was something like a state meet, and participants from outstation such as Melaka and Perak have come to show what they have to offer. Despite the tough competition, I managed to enter the finals. I was quite nervous because I was competing with national-level athletes, but I kept telling myself even if they were better, I would still give them a really good fight. I did manage a 6th placing in the end. One thing about these open competitions is you will never know what to expect. While it is a good place for exposure, it can be quite nerve-wrecking.

 

What would you say you would improve on in the long run in terms of this sports?

I guess the most important change needed to improve IMU’s quality in track and field or sports in general is a sports department. Sports is a well-established part of universities as is evidently seen in varsity championships all over the world and it helps to promote the university. Other universities like HELP, Sunway and Taylors have their own sports department which manages and organizes any of the universities sports events.

As for the MAPCU Track and Field team, Coach Keney has gone a long way to help continue the legacy we have in the MAPCU competition, as well as the MIVG competition. He was a national hurdler back in the 1990s, bringing glory to Malaysia during its Golden age in track and field. With his guidance, we have emerged champions in the MIVG since its establishment and minimum 2nd overall in MAPCU (winning in the years 2009 and 2011). The students in IMU change almost yearly, and he is the one who coordinates the students in every shift of athletes.

Interview: Tracking the Fields with Kok How

Any qualms in your term within the team?

Our team has 3 captains; me, Johann Ashaari and Deanna Nicole Lee. From handling attendance to recruiting members to balancing with studies, the life of a captain and student is one hell of a ride. We are many a times faced with situations where exam periods coincide with training. We do our best to work around the busy schedule, balancing training and study time. Together we strive towards our common goal, reminding and encouraging one another that we are all in this together and pour our heart and soul into preparing for the competition. We’ve worked hard, and we intend to do our best in the competition.

 

Any words of advice to track and field enthusiasts in IMU?

The FTAAAKL organises track events from time to time. Contact them to find out when is the next competition. Get together with other people who share the same passion. It’s much easier to train with some buddies rather than alone.

That is the easy bit. The training is the toughest of all. You will have days when you ask yourself why you work so hard, and on those days you must remind yourself how much you want to win. And if you keep at it, you will get there. As Muhammad Ali once said:

 

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.””

I’m all alone, in these four walls and not
Upset, happy, angry, sad, nothing at all
Anticipation and fear as I revisit this after

 

Five, six, nine, ten years
Seeing that version of myself, helpless and not
As you gleefully rub your hands in the back of my mind,
I scream out from the future to that past

 

Please don’t, don’t, don’t,
This will shatter me later, make me fear, even as I become better
Nightmares are what my dreams are made of

 

But you don’t stop…. don’t stop, there’s no stopping you
Beg you, plead with you, “please…please…please
But you can’t hear me and I can’t hear me either

 

And I struggle to comprehend and care
Why you put the burden of your release on me, on me, on me, in me…
Has it really been five, six, nine, ten years?

 

What made you think that I’d like your form of torture?
Did you give it any thought, thought before you acted?
After all, how many little girls dream of happily never afters?

Ever since I can remember I’ve identified as a feminist. I never really understood what this term meant but I guess through various medias such as television, social media, school, etc. I just blindly adopted the term; my thought process being, “Well I think being a woman is awesome so of course I’m a feminist” For me, an understanding of equality was always omnipresent, mostly due to the privileged lifestyle I grew up in where gender discrimination wasn’t ever blatantly present. However, one day when I was sixteen in my Extension English class, one of my male classmates said, “Feminists are so annoying, they all hate men. Men and women should be treated equally”. This statement left me slightly perplexed; I believed in gender equality, and I definitely wasn’t a “man- hater”, was I not a feminist?

After years of hesitation, late night Internet research, and then some more hesitation I can proudly say I’m a Feminist as opposed to an equalist, humanist or any other common variant of the word. The simple reason being that Feminism is defined as the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. (I’m not just saying this, it’s in the Oxford Dictionary and that’s as legitimate as you can get!).

So why call it Feminism? Many would argue that this term is irrelevant and to some extent almost contradictory to what feminist claims advocate. Why does a term that is defined as the belief of gender equality skew to one gender? To understand this it is important to understand where this term originated from. The word Feminism comes from the French word ‘feminisme’, and was first used in English during the 1890s in association with the movement for equal political and legal rights for women.  Now before you stop reading this article and think, “See! It’s all about women, not about equality” just think about what exactly the equality of both genders means. Gender equality is what I believe to be the right for any person to make decisions without pre-conceived notions of gender influencing those decisions. Throughout history this did not exist, and it was the female gender and stereotypically ‘feminine’ attributes that were undermined. Yes, Feminism was originally a movement begun by women for women, but its aim was to uplift women to the same position of power men were already in.

feminism definition

If you flip through the pages of any history book, it is very evident that men had acquired a position of power from the very beginning and did everything in their power to maintain this position of privilege. However, within their desperation to maintain their privilege, they inadvertently begun to damage their own gender by demeaning qualities that were not hyper masculine, i.e. any expression of sensitivity or emotion other than that of dominance and aggression. Feminism was the only movement in past times and -to a certain extent even in today’s time- that aimed to educate and advocate that the exhibition of emotions other than of dominance was not a sign of weakness but just a sign of being a fully functioning human. Furthermore, feminists also tried to demonstrate that just because some women were less likely to exhibit aggressive and dominating behaviour; it did not mean they were incapable of holding positions of influence or being of equal or higher intellect than their male counterparts.

In our present times, Feminism is still a relevant movement. I agree that in comparison to the past, both men and women have reached a position of greater equality; for example there is less stigma associated with people entering careers that were originally associated with genders opposite their own and the wage gap has significantly decreased (though it still does exist; according to Institute for Women’s Policy Research, in 2015, women earned 79c for every 1 dollar a man earned in the US). However, a disparity still exists. For example, in 2015 only 14.2% of the top five leadership positions at the companies in the S&P 500 are held by women (according to CNN Money) suggesting that in the corporate world the glass ceiling does exist, sure it’s higher than what it was 20 years ago but it is still present. These examples just encompass the status of the privileged women in the West, however, in other parts of the world, many women are still fighting for basic voting rights, education and driving privileges.

gender equal opportunity or representation
gender equal opportunity or representation

Feminism fought for women to have the same place in history as men. Feminism fights to put everyone on the same level as does equality so why fear the word?

If you believe that men and women deserve to be equal then despite your denial, you embody the definition of a Feminist and there is no reason to be afraid. It just means that you are part of movement that is named after those who were initially oppressed.

(Inspired by: EDEN – Man Down)

Huddled inside a long, metal snake, two bundles of fur pressed hard against each other. Their cheeks were stained with frozen tears, and where skin was exposed it was raw and red. Strong gusts of biting cold blew through the countryside, filling the vast emptiness with wailing howls. The wind was fierce enough to strip away the upper layer of snow, carrying with it pebbles and small rocks that smashed against metal in an endless torrent of harsh pings. Thick, suffocating clouds blocked off all natural light – the moon and the stars -allowing Darkness and Despair to mark their domains, their flags of conquest in the form of dead, frozen bodies.

There used to be twenty of them; now, they were only three. The young were the first to go, and the old were the last to leave. Seven brave had trekked away from their stalled train, grim determination fueling their steps. Now they lay with outstretched hands and silent screams, their graves the harsh blanket of white. Another three had already wasted away, falling into an endless slumber, their eyelids encrusted with ice. Four had taken their own lives, sharing one blade passed from each slit wrist to the next. Two lovers froze over and died with fingers intertwined, forever locked in a heartfelt display. One more simply disappeared, his Fate left unknown.

beautiful_train_wreck_by_jdthemaninthehat-d4zbjb0

It was going so well. They had finally gotten this train up and running after a long period of hard work, and for the first time in ages, the people of the Small Hamlet had a beacon against the dark. After the passing of a dreadful blizzard, almost like magic, the townsfolk stepped out of their doors to find a train on the tracks, a steam locomotive with three attached carriages. The religiously-inclined took it as a sign of their answered prayers, and so wondrous was the happening that even those that had turned their backs against Heaven and Hell began to think back to a long-lost God. A town assembly was quickly called to order, followed soon by the order for an inspection by the local mechanic and his teenage son. Anxious faces sat huddled together in wait of the results, counting every tenuous second that passed by. The pastor tried to soothe their souls, and it was midway through one of his sermons when the doors to their building burst open. Painfully cold air rushed in and with it came the teenage son as a harbinger of fortune.

“There’s some critical parts that broke, but Pa can fix it no problem,” he announced, and the room erupted to a chorus of cheers and boisterous laughs.

Their mayor rallied up every able-bodied man and woman to pile food and water onto the carriages, and selected a few volunteers for the more… grisly task of body disposal. Rumor was that the last group of passengers had succumbed to starvation, but so overwhelming was this surge of hope that not even the discovery of corpses on board could dissuade the men from their tasks. Stories of survival and perseverance were in the back of everyone’s mind, each one of them thinking himself to be a part of the next grand tale. As boxes and bags of supplies were piled onto the train, spirits were lifted and heads were held high. They were going to make it!

The corners of the girl’s lips curved upwards, bitterly smiling at the memories of their delusional past selves.

“We were fools, weren’t we?” she questioned, her voice almost inaudible amidst the blizzard howls.

“I suppose we were,” came the reply from the man sitting next to her, coughing vigorously at the end of those few words.

Resting her head against his shoulder, she waited for him to settle down. A small sigh escaped. She felt his fingers slide between hers, and she squeezed her hand against his. Her eyes trailed over to the frozen bodies that were seated in front of them, a sight that prompted wistful thoughts.

 “Are we going to die like that?” she asked gently, looking up to him. “I can’t help but see us in them.”

The man gripped her hands a little tighter, letting his head fall to rest comfortably against hers. People always said that their heights were perfect for each other, and no amount of snow was ever going to change that. They could have some comfort in that, at least.

A few minutes of silence passed before the man began to speak. He too was looking at the two frozen lovers, as well as the small pile of snow that had begun collecting over them, courtesy of the broken window and billowing curtains up above. He felt her snuggle into a more comfortable position, and he closed his eyes to focus on the feeling of her beside him.

“What do you see when you close your eyes, Aeries?” he mused. “For me, I like to imagine that I’m besides a warm, crackling fireplace. Someplace with -”

“With you,” interjected the girl, finishing his sentence for him. “With you, and with a glass of brandy.”

“Am I being compared to alcohol now?” he quipped in response, laughing.

“You’re just as addictive. And you warm the soul just as well,” she replied, joining in with his laughter.

The two of them found within themselves a small spark that still allowed room for such joy, and their laughs echoed through the silent train and out its broken windows, valiantly pushing back against the encroaching despair. Together they shared the special moment, seizing it to warm their hearts. And after it died down, they snuggled up against each other once more, settling back into the sweet spot that they were in, basking in the remnant warmth of their laughter.

“I’m not going to let you die,” she heard him say.

“That’s what they all say, Marcus.”

“But I have a plan.” Slowly, he reached into his front pocket to pull the object out. The first thing she saw was its cylindrical barrel.

“That’s a better way to go than a slit wrist, at least,” was her delayed response.

She felt it pushed into her hands, and her fingers curled around the handle. Her eyes still transfixed upon the sight, her mind slowly working through the possibilities that this object had brought. Only when he began speaking did she finally look away.

“I said I was going to save you, not kill you. It’s a flare gun. I’ve kept it as a secret from the seven. When you see any sign of anybody, just pull the trigger”

The two of them locked eyes, and she saw in his face the pain and the cold. He pulled her into a hug, and she embraced it with all her might. Burying his face in her shoulder, he continued to speak, choking on the tears that began to flow. “I’m sorry I can’t do more than.. than simply tell you to wait and pray. I want to protect you, to protect you and our son, and I hate it. It hurts that I can’t do more than this.”

womb

His wails filled the space around them, adding to the cries from the world outside. It was a symphony of broken spirits.

At the mention of their child, Aeries too broke down in tears. It was as if something inside of her had suddenly shattered, its piercing pieces exploding out. Sobbing, she gripped Marcus even tighter, her fingers clawing his back.

As she cried, one thought for her was hauntingly clear: she couldn’t remember the last time she felt the baby kick.

“So you’re saying that there’s a train full of survivors?”

“Listen here, I’m saying that there was a train full of survivors. When I walked off, there were only three left. A man, a woman, and the child inside of her.”

“Do you happen to know where this train is situated at?”

“Hell no. God only knows how long I’ve been walking for blind in that storm before bumping into you guys. And I ain’t even a local to these parts.”

“Says here in the report that one of my men almost ran you over. Stopped right in the nick of time.”

“Damn near gave me a heart attack.”

“Well, you better thank the Lord in your prayers tonight. Come noon tomorrow you’ll be on your way to one of the designated safe zones for civvies.”

“You bet I will. Hell, I’ll even add Vishnu and Buddha to that list too.”

“Anything that helps you find your peace. Thanks for your cooperation, you’re free to go.”

“Say, don’t take this the wrong way, but you gonna go back for them? They’re good folk, you know.”

“Lots of people in this world are good folk. That doesn’t mean we can save every one of them.”

“I understand you have lots going on at the moment, but think about it, yeah? Hell, just give me a map and I’ll see if I can figure out where we stopped. It’s the least that I can do for them.”

“Can’t do much without orders from the brass, but I’ll put in a word. Now get out and get some rest, you’ve done plenty enough.”

1. Life Is A Masquerade Party, And You’re The Idiot Who Thought The Masks Were Real

Sometimes, people are just waiting for a reason to validate their feelings. But you already knew that, didn’t you? Underneath the elaborate confessions of care, the gentle gestures of kindness, and the bubbling laughter and shoulder bumps, you can see it. The way they look away when you smile, the few seconds of hesitation every time they’re about to say “Yes”, the carefully interlaced pretense in their words. They just needed one reason- no matter how trivial -to shed the masks. You can’t blame them. The burden of deceit tugs hard at their seams, threatening to undo.

No one ever remembers when the masks are peeled off. Or maybe they never existed. Maybe we merely became bored enough to bother and look past the shiny surface of decorum and exaggerated coat of closeness; became bored enough to peer into the cracks and take a look at the ugliness inside. Although, ugliness like that is never hidden. It already made its appearances during situations of anger and annoyance. It was always excused as mistakes –meaningless words.

But you’ll learn that there is no such thing as empty words. Even those made in jest, passed off as light remarks: those are the ones that dent.

2. Vampires Don’t Make Great Friends

Do you know that poem by Robert Frost about the diverging roads? Well, you’re standing at the fork of one. Do you continue this tedious game of pretense, claiming that this is nothing but an innocuous flu in your otherwise healthy friendship, or do you drive a wooden stake through its heart?

Consult your mother. She knows best.

3. Breakup With Your Good Memories.

I find it both funny and utterly horrifying how the qualities that you once valued the most in a person become the ones you abhor. Are we really that fickle? To be able to transform goodness into malevolence, smiles into sneers, memories into scars. That requires an immense amount of resentment, and I’m terrified that we contain it.

It’s near comical in its trivialness, and almost as stereotypical as a bad breakup.

But there’s nothing comical in bitterness, and nothing stereotypical in heartbreak. Because when you taste the sour remnants of a friendship you only feel consumed. Tired. Lonely.

Gather your courage and sheath your will. It’s going to hurt. Oh, it’s going to hurt badly.

But once you take that step back, once you start building that wall to keep the immigrant thoughts at bay, it might sting a little bit less.

4. Nostalgia Will Try To Convince You That Your Old Teddy Bear Is Better Than Your New One

The first time I’ve ever mourned something was when I forgot my teddy bear 1,986 km away in another continent. I tried for months to persuade my parents to buy him a flight ticket. One day, I finally spotted him sitting on the shelf of a random shop. He finally arrived!

Several years later, after I realized that what I’ve had all this time was a mere replacement, I had the opportunity to reunite with the real one. I was disappointed. I liked him better in my memories.

Nostalgia is a skillful fabricator; she’ll paint your memories gray and then present them to you in a coloring book, and ask you to fill it using your favorite hues. After you’re done she’ll strip it away, and throw the real, dreary version at your feet, cackling at your disappointment.

Just like The Incredibles, it took more than a decade for Pixar to make a comeback with this sequel of Finding Nemo, which for me, was worth waiting 13 years for.  But, just in case you had already forgotten how good Finding Nemo was, let me refresh your memory. This fishy sequel was awashed with emotions and profoundly immersed with natural comedy and a great number of bright spots that will definitely catch the attention of the audience, Finding Dory has similar takes as Finding Nemo but with a different spin this time. The main characters include the kooky, googly-eyed creature Dory (Ellen Degeneres), Marlin, the constantly nervous clownfish (Brooks), and his son Nemo (Hayden Rolence).

I must say, the animators of this sequel had a bit of fun creating exciting new characters like Hank the Octopus voiced by Ed O’Neill who has chameleon-like powers, as well as sea lions, wacky birds, beluga whales and lots of other fish. As some of you might recall, Dory suffers from chronic short-term memory loss (which also affects most of university students during exams). Other than her name and the fact that she is separated from her parents, Dory cannot remember what it was that she forgot a moment ago. However, things are about to change as she gets bonked on the head and starts seeing flashes of her past.

aff133f43ac9dbb2ecac76c7b096f65e

One clue, a flashback that shows her a Sea World-like institution in California, eventually brings back a tremendous flood of memories of her parents. Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find her family, this time with the help of Nemo and Marlin. She also receives help from cranky Hank who depicts another dramatic yet emotional character that progressively catches your heart along the way. Dory’s intuition leads her to a touching family reunion after saving her mom and dad from captivity. However, Nemo worries that Dory’s reunion with her family will separate him from her after they’ve become a family themselves throughout the years.

The movie speaks about self-empowerment and the need to believe in yourself and what can happen when we tap into the true potential that lies inside of us and makes each of us different.

Similar in concept to Finding Nemo but with a different twist and take on characters, Finding Dory is an immersive one hour forty-five minutes underwater adventure that is simply breathtaking. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s explore the sequel, ‘”Finding Dory” while going down memory lane and remembering the popular adventure of Finding Nemo -unless you are amnesic like Dory.

Finding Dory by Disney Pixar in Cinemas starting 16 June 2016

Written by Soulless Cake

Arching branches of sullen trees reach to the clouds, grasping at invisible straws to get even an inch closer to heaven. Through the darkness lay evil eyes, stalking all who dare pass by this land – merchants, travellers, peasants and kings. Fools, every last one of them. Fueled by promises of God’s riches, the twisting dirt path had been tampered upon by countless footsteps. Those who choose this route as their passageway into the Promised Lands soon find themselves besieged by whispers in the dark, disease, starvation and blight. The wills of both the brave and foolish finds itself strangled by twisted tendrils of hopelessness and despair. When one has seen the same fungus-infested trunk for the twentieth time, the same path once trodden, poison seeps into the mind and hopelessness chips the heart.

The North’s passage is terrifying indeed.

Each and every one of us must have come across at least one medical condition which one might consider ‘cool’. We have prepared 4 medical conditions that we think are the quirkiest of the quirkiest. Recognize any one of these.

Stone BodiesFOP

Upon being hurt, humans are designed to heal on its own, with time that is. Some humans however, just take it to the next level, going so far overboard as turning damaged body parts to stone. The extremely rare condition known as Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP) involves a mutation of the body’s repair mechanism, which causes damaged muscles or ligaments to ossify. Sadly, operations on injuries of people suffering from FOP will only cause additional bone growth. In the most extreme cases, patients may be rendered completely immobile within decades.

No Pain, No Pain

gabby-gingras-throughout-the-years

Never feeling any pain sounds amazing, huh? You might say that it’s the best kind of mutation or disorder there is, but that might not be the case. Congenital analgesia or congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP) is a condition in which an individual cannot and has never felt any pain. Often children that are affected by this disorder acquire terribly debilitating injuries as a result of clawing themselves, biting off their tongue, or walking around on broken bones, resulting in some children with this condition not making it through to adolescence.

The Elderly Children

lifeaccordingtosam

Humans have, throughout history, scoured for ways to prolong life or to reverse the effects of aging, but sometimes aging just comes way too quickly. Progeria is a rare genetic disorder in which children present aspects of aging at a very early age. Children with Progeria maintain age-appropriate intelligence, but start to look elderly as early as the age of two, suffer from the same ailments as the elderly including arthritis, and rarely live past the age of thirteen.

HIV Resistance – Protection is Still a Must

hiv

Finally, something positive (insert irony here). The trail that scientists have gone through in curing HIV/AIDS has actually enabled us to just drop that stigma on HIV+ individuals. Luckily, some people with a genetic mutation that enable them to disable their copy of the CCR5 protein are VERY resistant to this detrimental viral infection. HIV uses that protein as a doorway into human cells. So, if a person lacks CCR5, HIV can’t enter their cells, and they’re extremely unlikely to become infected with the disease. Yes, they are resistant, and no, they’re not immune.
