Optical Benefit in Malaysia, beyond claiming for prescription glasses

We know the importance of perks and benefit to employee. It gives sense of security to employees when they know that their health care are covered and this helps in employee retention. Perks and benefits if given right can increase employees productivity. There are many types of employee benefit i.e. insurance, dental, disability etc. One that we would like to discuss about is the optical benefit in Malaysia.

What is Optical Benefit?

There is no exact benchmark to define optical benefit. However, what it covers is a subsidy for annual eye examination and partial or fully payment for prescription glasses by the employer to the employees.

It’s important to note that merely stating the benefit without proper execution cannot maximise its potential. After all the objective of the initiative is to give the best the company can to the employees.

How employer can further maximise the good of optical benefit?

As Pott Glasses is a company that focuses on providing corporate eye care service, we notice that there are few areas that can be improvised in providing optical benefit in order to get the best of optical benefit.

Here are the steps:

1. Engaging eye care event vs traditional approach

Instead of purely giving optical benefit the traditional method i.e. claim for new glasses, we find that a holistic eye care service will be more meaningful. Eye care talk will be helpful to raise eye care awareness and sharing about eye exercise on how to relief eye fatigue. These are useful tips that can be practised on daily basis to help to ease the eyes. A holistic eye care service helps one to be more aware of eye health level instead of just getting new glasses and forget about importance of care for the eyes.

2. Beyond prescription check

Rather than just doing eye prescription check, dry eye test will be really helpful especially for the ladies who wear contact lens for long hour. Another eye test is IOP test to test eye pressure. This is useful for elder employees to check for sign and of glaucoma.

3. Better communication

Many may not be aware of the perks that are provided by the company. This could be due to unappealing way of presenting the perks. So be it optical benefit or healthcare benefit, we suggest presenting these info in visual and infographic form. Besides, optical claim process should be hassle free and remuneration should be fast. By reducing the friction in the claiming process, employees will be much happier to enjoy the benefit.

4. Personalised to one’s need

Different employee may need different eye care or glasses. Through understanding the demographic of company employees, tailored eye care service will be able to cater to individual’s needs. In addition, one-to-one consultation by eye care professional for the employees enable them to get the eye care that fit them best.

5. Guaranteed quality and Affordable

Ultimately, it will be great to get exclusive discount for employees. It is definitely a win-win situation to the employees and the company. Since the company has already set a budget for optical benefit, why not make sure that the employees get the best our of the spending. Besides, the employees get to buy something much cheaper than the market without compromising the quality.

Communication is the key

Here in Pott Glasses we are actively serving corporate clients i.e. Digi, Air Asia, Garena and more. We provide services such as primary eye care, prescription check, color blind test, eye care talk and corporate rate.

Blue Light Glasses Frames

 

In the last few years, optometrists have been getting feedback from an increasing number of patients surrounding concerns of digital eye strain. Digital screens like TV, mobile phones, tablets, etc. emit blue light. Blue light or high energy visible light constitutes a third of all visible light and the human body relies on a small amount of it for certain functions like regulating the circadian rhythm. We naturally get a small amount of blue light from the sun however, it’s when we are exposed to excessive blue light from our screens that the retinal cells in our eyes halt the secretion of melatonin- the hormone responsible for getting interrupted peaceful sleep. We try to reduce our exposure to screens but in today’s context, this can pose to be quite a challenge given that we depend on them for a number of essential daily activities. Too much blue light can lead to the following symptoms: Dry eyes, Eye fatigue, Watery eyes, Burning sensation, Blurry vision, Pain in the back, neck and shoulders, Headache and Difficulty concentrating

Hence, in order to counter the potential long term effects on our eyesight, wearing a good quality pair of computer glasses or blue light blocking glasses to filter this harmful light can ease the strain on the eyes. 

At SmartBuyGlasses, you’ll find a large variety of anti blue light glasses with a built-in blue light protection coating. However, you can also order any glasses on our site and add on our zFORT™ blue light blocking coating at checkout to ensure that you are protected from the harmful effects of blue light.

 

Reading Glasses Malaysia

 

After we turn 40, the lenses in our eyes begin to get less flexible, becoming stiffer and leading to blurry vision. This is what makes us need to hold objects closer or hold them farther away. Another consequence is difficulty in reading small print texts, headaches and feeling strain in the eyes. All these symptoms are that of presbyopia and reading glasses help with this situation. Depending on which strength you buy, reading glasses can magnify your vision. If you’re just starting out with reading glasses, we recommend lower strength frames such as those with +1.00. Seniors are better off with a higher power such as from +3.50 to +5.00. The most value for money reading glasses available at SmartBuyGlasses would be the SmartBuy Readers collection. This exclusive collection was launched in 2018 for our customers above the age of 40 who could benefit from an extra boost of magnification in everyday life.

Pott Glasses on its way to becoming Malaysia’s first fully online eyewear store

Pott Glasses is looking at establishing Malaysia’s first fully online eyewear retail store, complete with a basic vision test for eyeglass prescriptions, and virtual glasses try-on services powered by augmented reality (AR).

Aw Tai Hau, co-founder of Pott Glasses, explains that there is an urgent need for the retail industry to pivot their businesses online. He also says that stores that rely primarily on offline sales will struggle to survive if they do not transition quickly during the Covid-19 crisis.

“The demand for eyewear is there, but because we are unable to meet customers during Movement Control Order (MCO), we need to pivot in the way we deliver our products and how we deliver the customer experience,” says Aw.

“What if the MCO keeps extending? We have four outlets and 13 staff members, so we do incur high operational costs. We can’t just wait around and do things that do not generate sales. Our idea is to generate enough sales to cover these expenses.”

Pott Glasses is an eyewear retail brand under H&H Optical Sdn Bhd, which also runs its own physical retail stores. It has recently launched an AR-powered virtual try-on service, where customers are able to preview how they look with glasses via a web browser on their phones or computers.

In addition to that, Pott Glasses has also launched a repair service for broken glasses which can be delivered within five hours. Pott Glasses will collect the broken glasses from the customer, have a new copy of the lenses using the same prescriptions, and have a new pair delivered through a delivery partner.

Despite introducing these new features and services, Aw explains that it is difficult to establish a full-fledged online purchasing experience for eyewear products due to its physical limitations.

“Customers have two major concerns when purchasing a new pair of glasses. Customers need to have their vision tested to get the latest eyeglass prescription, and they would also like to try out the glasses before committing to the purchase to see how they look,” Aw explains.

“That is why offline eyewear outlets exist, and why it is hard to establish a fully online eyewear store prior to the MCO, because these two experience is very difficult to replace through online interactions.”

In order to circumvent the concerns regarding eyeglass prescription, Pott Glasses will be launching an online vision test in the upcoming weeks. Customers are able to test their vision by following instructions, such as standing one metre away and covering one eye while answering questions displayed on the screen. 

However, Aw recognises that these self-diagnosed methods do have their own limits and difficulties in terms of accuracy. He assures that these online vision tests are not a new concept and can handle prescriptions for a power of up to 300.

“There is a company called Warby Parker in the US, the pioneer of the full-fledged online eyewear retail store space. But eventually, it also had to open physical stores in neighbourhood areas, not just one outlet, but hundreds of them,” says Aw.

“It is the biggest player in the online eyewear retail space, and even it cannot change consumer behaviour. So who are we to do something more ambitious? So instead of forcing customers to change, it is better for us to adjust the way we operate our business, and bring as many features online as possible, within our own capacity.”

Aw explains that the eyewear industry has taken a huge hit during the Covid-19 crisis, but many industry peers have taken a different approach in dealing with the crisis. He says many of his peers are now offering post-MCO vouchers, one-plus-one promotions, and are prioritising contact lenses sales.

“In fact, we tried selling contact lenses as well, but it turned into a price war really quickly, and there is no profit margin on such a product. Calculating the marketing costs, the revenue from contact lenses just barely broke even when factoring in the marketing costs, so it is not the ideal way for our business to grow in the long-run,” says Aw.

Aw recognises that Pott Glasses’ aggressive approach in pivoting its business models does come with its own risks. He admits that his customers might be overwhelmed by the multitude of new features being offered on the platform.

However, Aw highlights that doing nothing poses a greater risk. At least by exhausting every alternative, the company will have a fighting chance.

“It is not just about selling vouchers to get customers to purchase products after the MCO. It is really about planning ahead, so the business can be more resilient even if MCO were to be reimplemented,” says Aw.

90,000 Niko Hulkenberg: “Glasses in Malaysia are a good sign!”

After the Malaysian Grand Prix, Niko Hulkenberg went to the Buddh International Circuit, where he participated in a PR event. The German driver drove the journalists and guests along the Indian track, and then shared his impressions of the first races of the season …

Q: In Australia, you did not manage to drive even a lap, so the Malaysian Grand Prix can be considered your first race since returning to the championship.Are you happy with how it went?
Niko Hulkenberg : I am very pleased, because I managed to finish and earn points. So far, the season is developing in exactly the same way as in 2010: then I also quickly dropped out of the fight in Australia, and in Malaysia I earned the first point. This time I have already earned two points – perhaps this is a good sign!

Question: How was the race going after the start?
Niko Hulkenberg : Actually, the start did not go well – I lost a few positions, in particular, I lost to Kamui Kobayashi.There was a tense struggle in the first corner, there were a lot of turns on the first circle, so I was able to play several positions. I think I finished the first lap in 12th place behind Paul di Resta. He switched to rain tires early, and I drove into the pits a circle later.

Question: Did you see Paul’s car turn around after contact with Pastor Maldonado? It wasn’t shown on TV!
Niko Hulkenberg : Yes, I saw them collide. After leaving the boxes, Maldonado did not have time to warm up the brakes and hit Paul’s car.When the rain intensified, the management had no choice but to stop the race.

Question: Was it difficult after the restart?
Niko Hulkenberg : The circles on rain tires and then on intermediate were the most difficult. I’m having some minor balance issues. In addition, I was not fast enough, so Paul was ahead of me and then Bruno Senna. At that moment, I wasted too much time.

Question: Did you feel more comfortable after switching to slicks?
Niko Hulkenberg : Yes, I’m happy with the speed of the VJM05 on slicks.At the end of the race Jean-Eric Vergne was ahead of me, but, unfortunately, I could not overtake him in any way. I was very close, but it was not enough to overtake.

In addition, I had to work hard to defend my position from the attacks of Pastor Maldonado, but then he retired due to problems with the car.
Overall, we had a good day – we finished seventh and ninth.

Medical myths: is it true that glasses impair vision?

Someone may not like how his face looks with glasses

Some people do not always wear glasses, but only from time to time.There are various reasons for this. Someone does not like the way his face looks with glasses, someone makes fun of someone, but someone is just more comfortable without them. But it’s not just about comfort and aesthetics – many believe that constant wearing of glasses will further impair their vision.

Last year the results of the study were published, held in Nigeria. 64% of the students surveyed believed that wearing glasses could be harmful to the eyes. In the Indian state of Karnataka, 30% think so, and in Pakistan – 69% of the population.In Brazil even medical professionals are convinced that eyeglasses are impaired by wearing glasses. Is there any reason to believe they are right?

Of course, people wear glasses for two very different reasons: myopia and hyperopia. Farsightedness is often associated with age-related changes. Many people in their 40s or 50s begin to notice that it is difficult for them to read in low light. With age, the lens of the eye becomes less elastic, and this makes it difficult to refocus when the distance to the object changes.When it comes to the fact that we want to move a book or a menu further from our eyes than our hands allow, we put on our reading glasses.

Surprisingly, the long-term effects of wearing glasses are poorly understood. The available data do not support that wearing reading glasses affects vision. Where did so many people come from who are convinced that glasses are harmful?

It seems to us that over time we are more and more dependent on glasses, because with age, the lens continues to degrade. Glasses have to be used more and more often, and from this it is easy to conclude that it is because of them that the vision has become worse, although in fact there is no causal relationship.

In the long run, it doesn’t matter if you wear glasses or not (though if you have to strain your eyes while reading it can cause headaches and eye discomfort).

Correctly corrected vision

In the case of children, this is different. Wearing the wrong glasses or not wearing glasses at all as a child can have consequences. For a long time, it was believed that with myopia it is useful to wear glasses weaker than necessary, and this will reduce the rate of lengthening of the eyeball and thereby slow down the development of myopia.This was explained as follows: if you wear glasses that allow you to see clearly in the distance, then focusing on something located nearby, the eyeball will try to stretch out, and this must be avoided.

Choosing glasses correctly is very important for a child and his future vision

But research, conducted in Malaysia in 2002, showed the fallacy of this hypothesis so clearly that the experiment was canceled even a year earlier than planned.94 children with myopia were randomly divided into two groups. Some wore glasses in accordance with the optometrist’s prescription, while others were slightly weaker than necessary. At the start of the experiment, the children were between 9 and 14 years old. Over the next two years, the length of their eyeballs was measured at regular intervals. Contrary to the findings of a previous, less voluminous study in 1960, children wearing weaker glasses went further than the lengthening of the eyeball. In other words, their vision gradually deteriorated.

Some argue that there is not enough material for a definite conclusion.But The 2011 Cochrane Review (systematic reviews prepared by an international community of highly qualified doctors – The Cochrane Collaboration – Ed.) of children with myopia concludes from the available evidence that it is better to wear suitable glasses rather than try to use weaker ones. The review does not claim that using glasses that match the level of myopia is worse than not wearing them at all. And in just published, the longest in history, A 23-year study of progressive myopia suggests just the opposite.

In 1983 in Finland a group of myopic children was randomly divided according to several criteria, among which was reading without glasses. Vision in this group deteriorated faster than in those who wore glasses all the time. After the first three years of the study, they all received recommendations to use glasses consistently. After 20 years, no differences were found between the groups.

According to the famous ophthalmologist surgeon, there is no reason to believe that correctly selected glasses can harm the eyesight

Why it is so important for a child with poor eyesight to wear glasses is clear.His eyes are just learning to see, and without the right glasses, he may develop amblyopia (the so-called “lazy eye”), because his retina has not had the experience of obtaining a clear image. In addition, using the correct glasses has been found to help increase reading speed and reduce the risk of developing strabismus.

But back to the adults. As I mentioned above, this area is poorly understood. One might expect science to answer these questions, but sometimes it turns out that some seemingly obvious studies have not yet been carried out.

It would be unethical to experiment, suggesting that myopic children do not use glasses, because now it is known that this can badly affect both their studies and the development of their eyes. But such research could be done in adults. Why doesn’t anyone do this?

Professor Anant Viswanathan, a surgeon at the renowned Morfield Ophthalmological Hospital in London, believes that there is no research simply because there is no physiological reason to believe that glasses can damage vision.

It looks like we will not wait for such work in the near future, and we will have to rely on the available data. Yes, you may have your reasons for not wearing glasses, but don’t be afraid to ruin your eyesight.

“They will not catch us” or the adventures of “Shumi” in Malaysia :: Formula 1 :: RBC Sport

The Malaysian Grand Prix is ​​truly considered the most unexpected track.Judge for yourself: the temperature of the asphalt jumps from +50 to +30, and it can rain from the sky at any minute. But, probably, even if there were a flood or an earthquake in Malaysia at the time of the race, Michael Schumacher would probably be the first to come to the finish line. It’s just very difficult to imagine the conditions under which “Shumi” could miss his pole position advantage.

news news The Malaysian Grand Prix is ​​truly considered the most unexpected track.Judge for yourself: the temperature of the asphalt jumps from +50 to +30, and it can rain from the sky at any minute. But, probably, even if there were a flood or an earthquake in Malaysia at the time of the race, Michael Schumacher would probably be the first to come to the finish line. It’s just very difficult to imagine the conditions under which “Shumi” could miss his pole position advantage. And the “Red Baron” did not disappoint. The 72nd victory went to Schumacher practically without a fight.

The start of the race turned out to be quite exciting.However, surprises began even on the warm-up lap, when Kimi Raikkonen could not cope with his car, and he was simply deployed on the track. Thank God none of the pilots crashed into the Finn, otherwise McLaren could be in serious trouble.

The start itself was very rich as always. Michael Schumacher immediately started successfully and went into the lead, but his neighbor on the line, Australian Mark Webber, was only able to start his Jaguar, and therefore immediately rolled to the end of the peloton.This was taken advantage of by Michael Schamcher’s teammate Rubens Barrichello, who took the second position. Raikkonen, Montoya, Ralf Schumacher were also ahead of the Australian. Well, the best start of the race came from the classification loser Fernando Alonso, who immediately outstripped not only two Minardi, but two Jordan cars.

By the way, Alonso literally immediately outstripped Webber, who, due to an unsuccessful start, slipped into fourteenth place altogether. Later, the Australian stunningly attacks the cars ahead, catches up with Alonso, and on a wide section of the track he cuts the Spaniard in a very unsportsmanlike way, as a result of which Fernando almost crashes into a concrete wall.It seemed that Webber would still be able to compete for points, but Mark’s luck in this race still did not smile. After the Australian had practically recovered his position, his Jaguar could not stand the rear wheel – a puncture. Webber barely reached the pit stop, and he could be given up on further success in this race.

On the third lap of the race Rubens Barrichello almost made a fatal mistake: the Brazilian entered the turn too wide and almost flew off the track. In addition, Rubens missed ahead not only Montoya, but also Kimi Raikkonen, who, despite the embarrassment during the warm-up lap, started quite confidently.

Japanese Takumo Sato was pleasantly surprised at the start, leaving for 12th place, but soon Sato lost control of his car and flew off the track. True, the Japanese managed to resume participation in the race. Giorgio Pantano also turned the car, but he also managed to continue the race.

In the middle of the peloton at this time a serious struggle for places unfolded. Coulthard, who was in 7th place, held back the cars of Fernando Alonso and Ralf Schumacher for quite a long time to ensure the safe existence of his partner Kimi Raikkonen.Tom, however, still had a hard time. He was already more than two seconds behind Montoya, and Barrichello literally stepped on the heels of the Finn.

Soon the pilots began to enter the pits. Mark Webber’s first pit stop, which was clearly not planned, only brought more headaches. Not only did the rider already lag behind everyone else because of a puncture, but also on the way out of the boxes, the Australian could not resist and exceeded the speed, for which he received a fine – another drive through the pit lane.The leader of the race Michael Schumacher, after the first pit stop, entered the track 7th behind his brother on Williams. True, soon Raikkonen, Barrichello and Trulli also find themselves in the pits. Interestingly, the Ferrari mechanics, who served Michael Schumacher in just 8.2 seconds, kept Barrichello in the pits for an unexpectedly long time, as a result of which Trulli bypassed him at the exit from the pits. Soon, other leading riders are sent to the pit stop: Ralf Schumacher, Montoya, Button.

After the first race in the pit lane, the gap between the riders increased slightly.Michael Schumacher and Montoya were already about five seconds apart. In general, this gap between the first two riders during the entire route fluctuated between 2 and 10 seconds, but Michael did not allow a single attack from his opponent. And later, after the 27th lap, when, due to engine failure, Montoya’s partner Ralf Schumacher, headquarters Williams most likely instructed the Colombian not to risk it and just keep the second place. By the way, four laps before the departure of Ralph Schumacher, the main loser of the start, Mark Webber, left the race.

At the second pit stop there was an unexpected hitch at Renault, as a result of which Fernando Alonso, who had previously superbly outstripped David Coulthard, missed not only the Scotsman, but also the Japanese Sato. And here The BARs did a very good job at the pit stop, and the Button entered the track ahead of Raikkonen himself. Also, thanks to the well-chosen pit stop time, Barrichello entered the track ahead of Trulli.

On the 34th lap of the distance, Nick Heidfeld leaves the track, and Jordan is left with only one fighter – Giorgio Pantano, who was in a kind of vacuum.The fact is that Pantano was already quite far behind the leading Panis and Fisichella, but he was quite far from the two pursuing Minardi. Therefore, the main task of Pantano was to let the leaders overtaking him to the circle on time and without incident. And the leaders, meanwhile, after the third pit stops have lost one of their fighters. Once again, as on the track in Melbourne, Kimi Raikkonen was the loser. How many times in the offseason the McLaren team showed off their new engine, but no, it could not stand the heat of Malaysia – it burned out! And Raikkonen, annoyed by the breakdown, nervously brushed aside the personnel serving the track in the heat.You can understand the Finn – one of the favorites of the season, he is eliminated in the second race in a row.

The rest of the leaders confidently passed the third pit stop and raced to the finish line. In earnest, Barrichello accelerated after the third stop, who made up for the gap from the first three by a whole second in the last five laps, but the Brazilian did not succeed in overtaking the third Button. And here is another representative BAR Takumo Sato, who managed to climb to 8th place after the U-turn, still could not get to the points zone.The BAR engine could not stand, and Sato was forced to leave the track, but still qualified in fifteenth place

Well, Michael Schumacher finished in splendid isolation first on the track in Sepang, having won the next points for Ferrari. For Schumacher, this is the second consecutive victory of the season, and if it goes on like this, then both in the Constructors’ Cup and in the individual standings, Michael will secure his victory this season far before the end of the year. Juan Pablo Montoya was second on the podium, but he was clearly not happy about everything that was happening.To be forever second after the great “Shuminator” is not a very encouraging prospect for an ambitious Colombian. But the boy who stood on the third step of the podium, it seems, was the happiest of the whole trio. It was Jenson Button from BAR. From a team that no one considered as a competitor last season. Recall that Jenson Button started sixth, but moved forward with each pit stop, and as a result, the Briton achieved the first podium in his career and the first podium for BAR since 2001.

Russian pilot finished in the points zone at the Malaysian Grand Prix

The second Grand Prix of the Formula 1 championship ended on Sunday at the Sepang circuit.The winning double on the account of “Mercedes” – Lewis Hamilton came to the finish line first, his teammate Nico Rosberg – the second. Russian pilot “Toro Rosso” Daniil Kvyat, like two weeks ago in Australia, scored points, finishing tenth.

Surprisingly, by the second Grand Prix of the season, there was some semblance of stability in the peloton. Although two weeks ago it seemed that constant retirements, accidents and absolute uncertainty in the pre-launch layouts would last almost until the summer.And now in Malaysia, the alignment of forces began to take on real shape. Added to the Mercedes’ speed and power is stability, and it’s a truly diabolical mix for rivals Hamilton and Rosberg. If even at qualifying it seemed that Red Bulls and Alonso were capable of fighting them on equal terms, then the race dispelled these expectations. Today Mercedes is the hegemon of Formula 1, having removed the Red Bull from the throne.

The Austrian team, by the way, is showing amazing progress in comparison with the tests and the Australian Grand Prix.If in Melbourne Vettel had to turn off the engine due to mechanical problems at the very beginning of the race, now he came to the podium. Rikkiardo was supposed to be somewhere nearby, but the error of the mechanics at the pit stop (they screwed the front wheel poorly, because of which the car had to be pushed back into the pits a little later), and then the pilot himself (unsafe release of the car and driving along track with a broken wing and a ten-position penalty on the starting grid of the Bahrain Grand Prix) turned the race in Malaysia into a real disaster for the Australian.

But once again, the calculation and the cool head did not let Daniil Kvyat down. The Russian debutant of Formula 1 looks less and less like a rookie. Kvyat did not make a single mistake during the race, did not get involved in a previously lost fight with Williams and Magnussen, but calmly reached the finish line tenth, putting one more point in the team’s piggy bank.

“In the first half of the race, I fought on equal terms with Williams and McLaren, although they were faster on the straights,” the Russian noted after the race.“But I am also satisfied with the finishing segment, as I managed to keep my position and reach the finish line tenth.”

Gradually solve their problems in “Lotus”. Although the fight between Grosjean and Kvyat for the last place in the points zone ended with the victory of the latter, the 11th place for today’s “Lotus” is an achievement. But what happened to Raikkonen’s car after contact with Magnussen is a mystery. It seems that one puncture of the rear tire was not enough. Finn, who is considered one of the most technically skilled drivers in Formula 1, finished 12th and with great difficulty drove around the noticeably inferior Caterham class.

But Fernando Alonso once again convinced everyone that he can get the most out of any situation. His fourth place for all the visible problems “Ferrari” – a brilliant result. The Spaniard’s stability allows him to be in the top three in the overall standings. Although the density in the group of leaders is such that the Bahrain Grand Prix, which will take place in a week, can pretty much shuffle this deck.

Jordan – Malaysia (06 Oct), odds and odds

On October 6, 2021 at 18:00 Moscow time, a match will take place within the framework of the Friendly Matches championship, in which the local club Jordan will host an opponent in the national championship Malaysia at its stadium.

br>

Within the framework of the national championship, football clubs Jordan and Malaysia meet, and this match is to be held on October 06, 2021. Players will leave the dressing rooms on the field at 18:00 Moscow time. It is not so easy to determine an unambiguous favorite, because if you take the last ten face-to-face meetings, then each club won three victories in them, and four matches ended with a draw. There was a 2-2 draw in the last game.

The next round of the prestigious cup opens with the soccer match Jordan v Malaysia, scheduled for 06 October 2021.The teams’ players will appear on the lawn at 18:00 Moscow time. These clubs do not often meet on the football field, because the last time they played against each other was four years ago, and then the players of the Jordan club won 3-1. In total, the history of this confrontation has fourteen matches, in which Jordan has four wins and six defeats.

Jordan

Football Club Jordan is unlikely to be able to avoid a demotion, so the debut season is likely to be the last.The team did not do any work on strengthening the roster in the summer, and the players were simply not ready for a higher level. As a result, the hosts occupy the last line in the championship, and the lag behind the saving place only increases. At the moment it is already nine points. If at the beginning of the season football club Jordan still went into deep defense and many matches ended in a draw, then later this tactic failed, so now the team is issuing a streak of six defeats. In these matches, the hosts conceded three or four goals, and in general, the defense of FC Jordan is the weakest in the championship.But, even in spite of such weak results, the head coach was left in his post so far, and he continues to lead the team. As an outsider, the center and defensive midfielders, right winger and left back will not enter the field.

With each season, the Malaysia football club starts worse and worse, but this time the beginning was simply a failure, because the first points were obtained only in the eighth round. During this season, the team already had two coaching resignations, and the last mentor was still able to improve the game a little, because if before the guests were at the bottom of the standings, now they are already fourteenth, slightly ahead of the relegation zone.True, most of the points are scored on the home arena, but the team concedes too much on the road, and it rarely scores. However, with this mentor, Malaysia football club lost only once in six rounds, scoring two victories. Disqualification will prevent left and center midfielders from playing, while the right-back and reserve goalkeeper are in the infirmary.

Forecast and rate from forumtatarstan.ru

Every football fan on October 06, 2021 will make every effort to be able to watch the Jordan – Malaysia opposition.The live broadcast will take place all over the world and will be watched at 18:00 Moscow time. It is not often that teams have to meet on the football field, because in the last ten years there have been only four matches, and each time the main time ends with a draw.

In recent years, Football Club Jordan has constantly struggled to survive, finishing one step away from the relegation zone. But, while the team is doing better, because it is thirteenth in the championship, overtaking the outsiders by six points.But, nevertheless, the owners really lack stability, because after a failed start a successful segment followed, but now the Jordan football club is again showing disgusting form, losing quite often. In the last eight rounds, the team suffered five defeats, and won the other three matches, but outsiders from the relegation zone were beaten in two meetings. The current mentor is trying to make the team too defensive, so the hosts concede a little, but Jordan is among the three worst teams in terms of the number of goals scored.Recently, the goal is protected by the reserve goalkeeper, as the main one is injured, and there are left and central midfielders in the infirmary.

In recent years, Malaysia Football Club has once again become one of the leaders of this championship, and this season the fans have hope for the long-awaited title. For most of the season, the guests led the standings, but as soon as they lost points in two matches, the first line was lost, so now Malaysia is in second place and is four points behind the leader.On the road, the team shows no worse results than in their own walls, demonstrating attacking football. But even despite the fact that Malaysia is already producing a streak of six wins, there is no guarantee that it will be possible to close the gap from the leading team, since it is also in good shape. The guests do not experience staffing problems, because almost all key players are healthy and in excellent shape. Only the right midfielder and center back are injured, but there are worthy understudies in these positions.The right-handed striker’s entry into the field is in doubt, as he recently recovered from an injury, so the coach may release him as a substitute.

Today match Jordan – Malaysia Predictions from BC “BaltBet”

The soccer match between Jordan and Malaysia promises to be very intense. Our experts believe that now both teams are in good shape. This can be judged by looking at the standings, where team Jordan and team Malaysia occupy high places.The football season is in full swing, and it is too early to make predictions about where both clubs will finish in the standings. At their home stadium, the home team show excellent statistics this season, the club lost only a few times, in other matches it did not lose points. As part of the Jordan team, there are no serious personnel losses, therefore, we believe that the home team will play with the main squad from the first minutes, which means that the team will play in their usual manner – the first number.The guests are experiencing difficulties with rotation, as several leading players will not be able to help the team due to disqualifications and injuries. The statistics of personal meetings also speaks in favor of the Jordan team, therefore our experts are inclined to believe that the home team will win this match. Looking at the statistics of goals scored and conceded by the teams this season, as well as taking into account the personal meetings between these clubs, we think that the total goals scored by the bookmakers will be beaten by the teams, so we also recommend paying attention to this bet.Regarding violations, there should not be many of them in the match, therefore, we recommend playing the total total of yellow cards.

Until a few years ago, no one would have thought that most famous football clubs would adopt attacking tactics. In previous years, football managers actively combined an attacking style of play with a defensive one, as a result, a kind of hybrid was obtained that allowed stronger teams to take the lead, and then, thanks to skillful defensive actions, close on the defensive, and calmly bring the match to victory.This style was used by many football clubs, but now everything has changed. With the arrival of a young group of coaches, teams began to pay more and more attention to attack, forgetting about defense. Because of this, most matches end with a lot of goals scored. Moreover, even when the leader of the championship and one of the outsiders meet, both teams score in the match, only the leader scores a few more goals. Of course, fans like this approach, as football matches turn into an unforgettable show with an abundance of scoring chances and goals.Therefore, today our experts will try to predict the match with the participation of the Jordan team and the Malaysia team, in which, in our opinion, a lot of goals will be scored, because these teams can be classified as clubs playing attacking football. A more detailed description of the forecast can be found below, the only thing I would like to add is that the game should not disappoint all true football fans with its entertainment.

TODAY MATCH Jordan – Malaysia. EXPERTS FORECAST

Our experts have chosen an interesting football match for forecasting.Team Jordan and Team Malaysia will play each other in the championship. Both clubs are fighting for different places in the championship, but this does not mean that one team is the favorite of the match and the other is an outsider. In modern football, there is no longer such a thing as a favorite and an outsider. The fact is that today the teams began to act more aggressively, and even the grandees of modern football need to snatch victories in every match, overcoming the opponent’s defensive redoubts, and constantly defending themselves from his numerous attacks.Today, almost all teams have adopted the attacking tactics of the game. This means that the weaker team is trying not to sit back in defense, but to constantly threaten the goal of their stronger opponents. This adds entertainment to football, and unpredictability to matches, since such a game gives weak teams hope for points in matches with strong opponents. Remember, earlier weak clubs tried to put the bus against strong teams, often such matches ended with a minimal victory for a strong club, less often – weak teams were content with a draw.Everything has changed today. Open football is a chance for weak clubs, as well as a joy for fans who can watch a large number of goals scored in a match and the play of their idols.

“Today, 515 days after the disappearance of the plane, I must tell you with a heavy heart that an international team of experts has definitively confirmed that the wreckage found on Reunion Island really belongs to MH370,” the Prime Minister said. Najib Razak in a televised address.

The plane with 239 people on board disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The first direct evidence that it crashed over the ocean completes a chapter in one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.

But what exactly happened remains unknown, and the authorities’ statement, apparently, will not satisfy the families of those on board. Most of them were from China.

Several Chinese families said French investigators and Boeing should also say for sure if the wreck belongs to the plane.

“We do not live in denial … but it is our duty to our loved ones not to declare them missing without 100% certainty!” – says in the microblog of families.
