A pain in the Butt - A Paki in Britain

Posted: 31 Jul 2009 04:00 AM PDT

This about Pakis in Britain, humourous but true - edit. From the Eye On The World

(UK) Meet Hassan Butt, he's the younger brother of Omer Butt. You know, that pious devotee of the Islamic faith who refused to deal with NHS patients at his dental surgery unless they subscribed to his version of the Islamic faith. (Women had to don the hijab, Men had to remove gold and keep their women folk in place and policewoman had no right to complain if they were knocked down by his car with him at the wheel)

Well, it seems that one is as bad as the other. You see, while Omar was learning how to bully women around by trying to stick an instrument into their mouths, younger brother Hassan packed his bags and buggered off to the Motherland in which to recruit followers to fight British soldiers in Afghanistan.

Oh how the media loved him and how he had no problem informing the world how he had sent hundreds to their deaths in which to fight the infidel. How he himself had no problem dying for the cause and how in the end Jihad will prevail. Then he hit a problem.

Sick of all the bad press he was giving them. Pakistan told him to sling his hook back to Britain, and tail between legs he returned, and when he was picked up by the Old Bill at the airport, he cried that he was a liar and that he made everything up, and could he please be allowed to live in the infidel's country. And the infidel, fearful of offending his human rights, did.

Well, where one Butt became constipated, the other (Omer) decided to cover the great unwashed with his own brand of religious diarrhea. During one such incident where Omer was arrested for acting like a little shit, Hassan arrived and bemoaned the fact that big brother had nicked his big brother. He did so by referring to the Police as the Gestapo and demanded to know why he was being treated as a Paki. (Err, bugger lugs, have you looked in the mirror lately?) He finished off his one man stand by claiming the police of being 'rednecks' and belonging to the BNP.

It appears that the days of Muslims playing the victim card may be slowly falling by the wayside, as today Mr Butt was fined £200 and ordered to pay £100 costs and a victim surcharge of £15 for playing the race card in which to try and excuse his own racist behaviour.

I'm sure the Pakistani police wouldn't have been as lenient towards this upstanding pillar of the Islamic community. But then how do you expect to be treated when your surname is Butt and found guilty of talking out of your arse.

RESPONSIBILITY DOES NOT MEAN BLAME

Posted: 31 Jul 2009 03:00 AM PDT

I will say it again: responsibility does not mean blame.

Having begun immersing myself in personal development three years ago, a painful recurring theme - and one of the biggest bumps in the road I came across - was this idea of being "responsible" for everything in my life. Whether it was to do with beliefs, thoughts, actions, finances or simply the way things were going, many motivational speakers insisted that I (as a person) had everything to do with it.

"Wait a minute," I asked myself when I first heard what I'd interpreted as an accusation. "What did I do?"

Well, I eventually discovered that it's not so much about what you did, but what you subconsciously took in as a belief.

While some people are fortunate enough to go through life with positive messages being reinforced, most of us have had some negativity instilled in our minds: limiting beliefs that hold us back. If we hear them enough times, to paraphrase Brian Tracy: our subconscious mind accepts these limiting beliefs, and they eventually become true for you.

Even the most powerful and successful people in the world have had negative beliefs, but they were able to overcome them. Some people aren't even aware of having them them, and less so of their effects. Worse still, some people know they have them, but have no idea how to change the way they think.

I don't believe that anybody deliberately chooses or sets out to be negative. If they respond negatively to a situation, it's the result of an underlying, unresolved limiting belief.

Yet when I hear a speaker talking about taking responsibility for your life, it's as if anybody else who was involved had been exonerated. You hear them say things like, "you're doing it to yourself", "nobody else but you", "it's not them, it's you" and many other like statements.
Depending on the situation, these (to some people, including myself), can be translated as a personal attack. Instead of helping, they reinforce more negativity.

It has taken me years to realise the difference between taking responsibility and taking the blame, which was extremely important. Most people suggest blaming yourself for what happens, which is a view I do not support.

You've probably heard that the word responsibility is formed of two words: response and ability. Responsibility simply means "the ability to respond". When you take responsibility for something, you are taking control. You are asserting your ability to handle whatever is thrown at you, by choosing how you will respond.

On the other hand, blame is counterproductive. Blame takes control away from you; it serves no other purpose than to make people feel bad, and in most cases hands control over your life to something or someone else.

If you have a negative belief, I encourage you not to blame yourself for having it - and the catch is that you mustn't blame anyone else either, even if you feel they're responsible. Blaming will not improve or resolve the situation.

Instead, whether you believe that you can or can't, we must aim to take responsibility: all that means is that we address the fact that something is wrong, and respond to it with action.

ISA Rally .... Sick Mind

Posted: 31 Jul 2009 01:33 AM PDT

Just came back from working trip to Jakarta last Wednesday. It was good trip except for the cancelled Mas flight on Tuesday that took off the smiles from passengers faces. The hotels, offices and shopping centers in Jakarta looks like a high security zones. Security services must be a good business in Indonesia. Definitely I would not fancy myself living in Jakarta or even try to compare Malaysia and Indonesia. Living here is just too good to compare with most of our neighboring states. It was bad enough that every bombing in Indonesia will be linked to Nordin Mat Top (a Malaysian) and Malaysian bashing seemed to be a good past time for them.

Now with the planned anti ISA rally, the Pakatan Rakyat and associates is hoping to turn Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta, where rally has became their natural habit. The ISA was in place to secure the security of the nation and innocent rakyat from those who wish to see Malaysia goes down the drain and in chaos. The things that need to be improved perhaps is in ensuring that the law being used fairly. Further more the Prime Minister has declared that the law will be reviewed for the better.

No the Pakatan Rakyat and associates could not leave the country in peace and used every opportunity to politicize issues. The headway made by BN on the confidence building initiatives has caused panic in the opposition front. They are back to their old fashion way of streets demonstrations. I hope the police will take early action to ensure Kuala Lumpur remains a peaceful and harmony city. For those who love streets demonstrations so much please move over to Jakarta your idol city.

My Version Of The Last Supper Before Being QUARANTINED for H1N1- Horny One or Naughty One

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 11:27 PM PDT

My school is being quarantined for H1N1.

It seems that we have quite a lot of students who're down with flu symptoms especially those living in the school hostel. Woah.. that's bad. Right before it begins, life went on as usual for all of us and I was celebrating my teacher's birthday. Yeah.. a class party with lots of delicious Malaysian food..

Happy Birthday Ms Swee!

yummy dragon fruit jellies..

A really expensive but delicious vegetarian cake


Mee and those fried snacks..


Rendang and lots lots more.. too much food to be finished!


So, everyone was having fun until all students are required to be in the school hall for an urgent announcement. And yes.. it created havoc in the school. Many of us do not want to be in the hall because it lacks of ventilation and causes H1N1 to spread faster. However, the prefects and some teachers forces us and this causes an uproar. We could see teachers, prefects wearing their mask and even trying their best to be out from the hall but most of them students are not allowed to so and no mask are provided. So, where is justice?






The sad thing is.. I can't go out for a week! One goddamned week till school resumes next Friday. Guessed I'll be drowned by boredom and study till I go crazy. We're even given a piece of flier regarding the 10 things we need to do while being quarantined at home. I remembered laughing at those from Munshi Abdullah because they're school's closed due to H1N1 symtoms but now it spreads damn fast to schools around Malacca.




Anyway, life goes one.. Do hope things would be better for everyone soon.. Hoping to go back to school because I could not stand being at home for too long! Lol..

FANTASTIC FACTS THAT YOU MAY FANCY (humor)

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 06:45 PM PDT

Women Pictures, Images and Photos

In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are 'limbs,' therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, 'Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg.' (Artists know hands and arms are more difficult to paint)

As incredible as it sounds, men and women took baths only twice a year (May and October) Women kept their hair covered, while men shaved their heads (because of lice and bugs) and wore wigs. Wealthy men could afford good wigs made from wool. They couldn't wash t he wigs, so to clean them they would carve out a loaf of bread, put the wig in the shell, and bake it for 30 minutes. The heat would make the wig big and fluffy, hence the term 'big wig.' Today we often use the term 'here comes the Big Wig' because someone appears to be or is powerful and wealthy.

In the late 1700's, many houses consisted of a large room with only one chair. Commonly, a long wide board folded down from the wall, and was used for dining. The 'head of the household' always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor. Occasionally a guest, who was usually a man, would be invited to sit in this chair during a meal. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. They called the one sitting in the chair the 'chair man.' Today in business, we use the expression or title 'Chairman' or 'Chairman of the Board..'

Personal hygiene left much room for improvement. As a result, many women and men had developed acne scars by adulthood. The women would spread bee's wax over their facial skin to smooth out their complexions. When they were speaking to each other, if a woman began to stare at another woman's face she was told, 'mind your own bee's wax.' Should the woman smile, the wax would crack, hence the term 'crack a smile'. In addition, when they sat too close to the fire, the wax would melt . . . Therefore, the expression 'losing face.'

Ladies wore corsets, which would lace up in the front. A proper and dignified woman, as in 'straight laced'. . Wore a tightly tied lace.

Common entertainment included playing cards. However, there was a tax levied when purchasing playing cards but only applicable to the 'Ace of Spades.' To avoid paying the tax, people would purchase 51 cards instead. Yet, since most games require 52 cards, these people were thought to be stupid or dumb because they weren't 'playing with a full deck.'

Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what the people considered important. Since there were no telephones, TV's or radios, the politicians sent their assistants to local taverns, pubs, and bars. They were told to 'go sip some ale' and listen to people's conversations and political concerns.. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. 'You go sip here' and 'You go sip there.' The two words 'go sip' were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term 'gossip.'

At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized containers. A bar maid's job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in 'pints' and who was drinking in 'quarts,' hence the term 'minding your'P's and Q's '

AUTHENTIC ACCOUNTABILITY

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 10:45 PM PDT

Accountability is the backbone of success. Without accountability, dreams, and ambitions will almost always fall by the wayside. With accountability, motivation levels go up, things get done even when the effort doesn't seem worth it, and goals get accomplished. So why don't more people use accountability to propel them forward? Some people don't have a good understanding of how to use accountability or they tend to misuse accountability by setting up false expectations with the people that it will be applied to.

Stephen Covey, author and motivational speaker, says "Accountability breeds response-ability". This point is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for accountability that stops progress before it even starts. When people are going to hold each other accountable for one thing or another, it needs to be done with the utmost respect and truest intentions to take on such a great responsibility. If this responsibility is taken lightly or shrugged off, it creates a void within the relationship that not only hurts the current journey to success but also future requests for accountability. Accountability is one of the truest forms of caring one person can show to another.

The relationship between the parties involved in accountability is crucial to the success of their effort. Best put, accountability without a relationship is harassment. Meaning if a person tries to hold another accountable but has not yet established a relationship, their efforts can be perceived as harassment regardless of the intention on the part of the person striving to hold another accountable.

Great ways to set up and sustain an accountability relationship include:
• develop a caring environment to provide feedback to one another
• establishing expectations of the accountability by discussing specific ways
to communicate deviations
• be honest with yourself when deciding on those expectations
• discuss the goal that is being strived for and what achieving it will mean
to the parties involved
• convey the importance and responsibility that is expected from the
relationship
• give feedback regularly
• stay connected and check in with one another to make sure things are being
perceived as intended
• show genuine appreciation to those involved
• reciprocate accountability when possible and requested

Another common issue that arises with accountability that comes on the receiving end of the relationship is how to take others feedback. In a good accountability relationship, all parties enter from the stand point of caring enough to help one of the parties achieve a goal. When people enter into an accountability relationship and are asked to truly hold another accountable, it must be done with the intent on from all that that each is agreeing to the responsibility involved and that the accountability will be followed through on. Remember that the person holding you accountable is helping you keep your word that you will do what you said you would do. Authentic accountability, means saying the tough things we might not want to say. In other words, that person has agreed to tell you what you NEED to hear and not necessarily what you WANT to hear, so be careful what you ask for.

Accountability must never be confused with enforcement. All too often the two are used synonymously when their meanings and uses are far too important to be used in this way. Enforcement is used by those in a position of authority to uphold rules, regulations, contracts, etc. to avoid coming across as a dictator or tyrant. Many people use the word "accountability" as a softer approach in these situations, when really they are enforcing a standard that has been placed upon someone, NOT a standard that was agreed upon. This is usually due to a lack of understanding of the difference as well as the common desire for people to like you by not coming across as too harsh.

When used properly, accountability has the power to bring relationships closer and accomplish great things in the world. Revisit past accountability relationships to see if there are ways to enhance them and you should also feel equipped with the tools needed to have a great accountability relationship when the next opportunity arises to help someone accomplish great things!

Parliament and State Reps: The health factor!

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 08:25 PM PDT

It's been what? Not even a year and a half and we already have loads
of MP's and State Reps literally dying on the job.
While some may argue that the job itself is their killer, it really
doesn't help anyones cause by having by-elections every now and then.
The amount of money being spent, the dirty campaigning, the country
being put on-hold are all factors we should consider before jumping up
and down shouting "Democracy!".

The latest to join the obituary list of YB's is Penang State
Assemblyman for Permatang Pauh who died early this morning. The story
is available here:
http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/7/31/nation/20090731090813&sec=nation.

Perhaps apart from the screening process of ensuring a capable
candidate in elections, which cover the usual areas of experience,
seniority, capability, qualifications etc, parties should also screen
potentials for health problems.

This can't go on forever. We cannot be having by-elections every now
and then on account of reps dying off while in service.

Anyway, this seems to be the new Malaysia. Full of democracy and dead people.

Cheers!

IT'S MINE AND YOUR  DUTY TO PASS THIS ON

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 07:25 PM PDT

I know this is horrific to read and see, but if it helps to stop child abuse, we must all pass it on.


BLUE RIBBON AGAINST CHILD ABUSE

My name is Sarah
I am but three,
my eyes are swollen
I cannot see .



I must be stupid,
I must be bad,
what else could have made
my daddy so mad?

I wish I were better,
I wish I weren't ugly,
then maybe my Mommy
would still want to hug me.

I can't speak at all,
I can't do a wrong
or else I'm locked up
all the day long.

When I awake I'm all alone
the house is dark
my folks aren't home.

When my Mommy does come
I'll try and be nice,
so maybe I'll get just
one whipping tonight.

Don't make a sound!
I just heard a car
my daddy is back
from Charlie's Bar.

I hear him curse
my name he calls
I press myself
against the wall.



I try and hide
from his evil eyes
I'm so afraid now
I'm starting to cry.

He finds me weeping
he shouts ugly words,
he says its my fault
that he suffers at work.

He slaps me and hits me
and yells at me more,
I finally get free
and I run for the door. He's already locked it
and I start to bawl,
he takes me and throws me
against the hard wall.



I fall to the floor
with my bones nearly broken,
and my daddy continues
with more bad words spoken.

'I'm sorry!' I scream
but its now much too late
his face has been twisted
into unimaginable hate.

The hurt and the pain
again and again
oh please God, have mercy!
oh please let it end!

And he finally stops
and heads for the door,
while I lay there motionless
sprawled on the floor.

My name is Sarah
and I am but three,
tonight my daddy
murdered me.
There are thousands of kids out there just like Sarah. And you can help

It sickens me to my soul, and if you just read this and don't pass it on I pray for your forgiveness, because you would have to be one heartless person to not be affected by this email. And because you are affected, do something about it!! So all I am asking you to do is take some time to send this on and acknowledge that this stuff does happen, and that people like her dad do live in our society, and pray for child abuse to wither out and die, but also pray for the safety of our youth.

Please pass this poem on as a Blue Ribbon Against Child Abuse because, as crazy as it might sound, it might just indirectly change a life.

Going To My NPL Today

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 08:08 PM PDT

The Xperienceoflife has 99988 hits now and 12 more to go. I was expecting will hit the mark on 1st or 2nd August when I am in Malacca for the 4th Circuit of My NPL tournament at Dataran Palhawan. It was basedon an average 100 hits per day. But this morning when I checked the stats meter is has already surpass the halfway mark 0f 99900 hits. So I am assuming that it will be 100kby today.

Today I will be leaving for Malacca with my team- Yakuza. We are hoping to do the best in this tournament and hoping to make it to the podium but to put such a high goal will put us into more pressure. We know that there teams who had been making the podium since the first tournament and to be with them might be an uphill task but we brush that aside since paintball is not just tactical but the element of luck is in it too.

Why I say luck plays some role in determining the winner. Even though paintball is a subjective sport where paint marks eliminate the player but base on experience I was called 'OUT!!" on two occasions during the first tournament. On both occasions the paint mark on me was not from hits by my opponents but paintballs scattered on the ground. I do protest that I broke the pellets while sliding on the ground but the ref still count me as out. So as not to be unfair to my teammates, I walked out. Or else it will be a ONE to ONE and another player nearest to me will be pulled out too. Is that not luck?

Britain is sick

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 02:46 PM PDT

(UK) The Left love to sue. In fact, under this Labour government, more people have sued the UK and won huge payout than at any other time in history. Which may explain why so many terrorist wannabes and criminals have no problem suing for the slightest reason going.

For example, we have the case of a failed asylum seeker who, on arriving in the UK from Somalia (well, there's a surprise), decided to rape a child. After serving 6 years, he couldn't be deported back to Somalia because of his human rights, but he couldn't be let free because of the risk of him raping another child, so the British civil service dithered and kept him in jail. Problem was, that breached his human rights, and he was awarded £50,000 in damages.

How about the case of failed asylum seekers from the Congo who were locked prior to trying to deport them. Because their two children were locked up with them (for two months), that too was seen as breaching their human rights, and in Feb of this year they received £150,000 in compensation.

But that's just it. Under Labour, they just pay out whenever they can in which to stop any dark-skinned idiot taking his case to the media in which they get the chance to play the victim by playing the racist card.

And then we have the case of young Carl Clowes from Bradford who lost his leg while serving in the army. It seems the army wants to claw back £48,000 it paid out to him for losing that leg, saying that the £100,000 he had already received was enough.

A young man who lost his leg while serving Queen and country on a mission started by a left-wing government concerned about human rights in Afghanistan is told that he has to pay back some of the money paid.

Yup, sounds about right. I bet they wouldn't be doing the same if he had been in Afghanistan trying to kill British soldiers. Nah, then he'd be given a council house, all the money he needed and a British passport. I mean, they are doing exactly that to a certain Binyam Mohammed.

Yet the very same government which is begrudging £48,000 for a lost leg had no problem in which to spend £250,000 in which to hire a private jet to return to the UK a failed asylum seeker who went off to Afghanistan in which to play Jihad boy.

The same government, I should add, which has refused to ask any MP to pay back monies they stole from the tax-payers (each and everyone, I should add) in which to furnish their nests, wants a young man who lost his leg to pay a third back.And people wonder why the odious BNP won a seat in the local elections in that region of Yorkshire.

A STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 03:00 PM PDT

Each of us has a past and we have a future. What we do with the life that we are given is up to us. Family beliefs mold our every being. But as we age, these beliefs become challenged and entangled in the many webs of our peers, co-workers, and our own mind. Our emotions are formed before age 7. During these early years we must learn to depend on and trust others for our survival and security. These basic emotions, which are formed so early in life, cause us to often question our trust of self or others as we face struggles in life. But life is not about blame or resentment. Life is meant to be lived according to unity and forgiveness. It is up to each of us to look deep within our own beliefs, our own soul and our own life to see the wonderful creation of self, of God, of family and of nature and take back what is rightfully ours – life, love and the pursuit of happiness.

In my own struggles, I have looked at many philosophies to find answers that I have been searching for. How does this work or why does this hurt? Why can I not make personal decisions for my own good but always help others with theirs? Why do I feel abandoned or spiritually inept? Why can't we all just get along? Where is God in all of this?

I have come to realize that my own actions and attitudes have a great influence on my health. My beliefs have a tremendous impact on my actions and attitudes. How I view things is often the result of something that maybe I judged before knowing the whole truth.

Our soul stores all of our emotions, our traumas, our life's memories and our desires. This is the basis for who we are, what we do and how we react to every circumstance that we face. In my attempt to understand how these emotions, attitudes, health issues and beliefs fit together, I had to understand that the place of measure for my own unity occurred when East meets West.

The Eastern philosophy examines this through the Indian knowledge of Chakras. They relate each of the major Chakras (energy systems) with our physical bodies Endocrine glands (adrenal, pituitary, etc). And with each of these glands, a meridian (Stomach, Pancreas, Liver, etc) from the Chinese medical philosophy is derived. And from each Chinese and Indian philosophy, as well as Kinesiology, Craniosacral and other Western alternative healing modalities, a muscle and emotion are associated. And from this, Western medical, nutrition and drugs arise. It may not happen in this order of course as each of us is different. One avenue that works well for one person may not fit another's make-up. But many times, the aches, pains and trauma that we experience on any level may very well be traced back to our roots. Getting back to our roots is what America needs if we are to heal as a Nation.

Personal responsibility is at the forefront of this healing crisis. We have to be willing to look at how our emotions are triggered with certain events, and how they shape our lifestyle if we are to become aware of what our body is trying to tell us. Whether we admit our weaknesses and strengths, or whether we look at the current medications we are on and their effects towards our natural wellness, we have to understand that what lies below is seen from above. Becoming aware of our own body's aches and pains can bring healing to a nation struggling to survive. Our physical must match our mental and our mental our emotional in order to appreciate life at the spiritual level.

America struggles with a health-care system regulated by government entitlements, laws and insurance companies that may not see the body as a whole. In recent years, our society has become overly dependent on these regulations to provide fast healing therapies and drugs that will allow us to live our lives "on the run". The advance in technology has propelled us into thinking that if information arrives at my desk at gigabytes per second, I should be able to respond at that same speed. The human body does not work that quickly-it simply was not designed to do so. But we have allowed technology, as well as our desire to have everything and have it now, to rule our lives. Our adrenal glands are in a constant state of "hyper-activity", never knowing "flight from fright" or "life from chaos". This continued pace increases our chances of ailments and symptoms that propel the body into over-extension.

This can also be seen in our medical community. New drugs do not always receive the adequate testing necessary before being placed on the market at either government or society's demands. Recent years have shown that what was once thought to be a miracle cure for many "diseases" are in fact more dangerous to us due to side effects. Some of these drugs have been pulled from the markets and law-suits are in high demand. We blame the doctors for prescribing what we asked for – something quick to soothe our pain.

Insurance companies often dictate the length of time that a doctor can spend with a patient. The industry seems to have become one of money vice care for the body as a whole. More drugs are being prescribed and we are paying the price, (monetarily and physically) as we struggle to keep up with the demand and stress we put on ourselves, our bodies and within our own society.

Television commercials are beginning to educate us on the fact that neither parents nor children have to buy illegal drugs off the streets. Many of the same kinds of drugs are present within our own medicine cabinet for one reason or another. As the body deteriorates (mentally, physically and spiritually) we find ourselves sitting in first one doctor's office and then another, hoping that somewhere it will all make sense.

Doctor's offices cannot keep pace with the forwarding of our patient records when specialty service requests are at a premium. Some of these requests are dictated by high malpractice insurance which again raises the price we pay for our healthcare. It is up to us to become responsible and intelligent about our body's symptoms, the medicines we are taking and how we are possibly sabotaging our own lives with the lifestyle we are living.
Nutrition, we can throw that out the window. Prices for good food is too high considering the shape of our economy; life is too fast pace for us to sit down to good or nutritious meals even once or twice a week, and depression and other disorders are so high within our own country that we have become dependent on comfort food rather than caring about what might be good for us. Nutrition is at the forefront of solving some of our own healthcare crisis's yet the availability and affordability of this information has become too complex or costly. Is it possible that some information is withheld because of the conflict of interests between our government and other lobbying groups and organizations?

We must become aware of our conditions and where they arise from before we can fix this problem. We cannot continue to blame others or expect the government to "fix" the problems of our own lives if we are not willing to accept some responsibility ourselves.

Emotions and beliefs build the foundation necessary to open to new possibilities and responsibilities for who we are and who we are meant to be. Each of us carries within us a caring, loving light for unity and forgiveness.

This is not easy. But it is a start. We don't have to be rocket scientist to know that this country is in the midst of self-destruction. Nor do we have to be a chemist to understand that we need to treat ourselves better if we wish to have a better and longer life. We need to start somewhere and that somewhere begins at home, with each and every one of us.

In all of my findings I begin to realize the importance of vitamins to the body. Amino acids are basic building blocks to protein, the substance that powers the muscles, nerves and hormones for long lasting activity. As the body cannot produce all of the amino acids required, some of these amino acids must be obtained from diet such as green vegetables, lean meat, nuts, and omega-3/6/9. Basic building blocks of life are the very things missing in our environment today.

All vitamins are not the same. As with many of the synthetic pills on the market today, companies are putting "filler's" into these products at low cost and selling them as vitamins of health. Some of these "fillers" are not easily broken down by our digestive system, our liver or any other organ of the body. If they cannot be broken down into nutrients, the body cannot use them to nourish our bones, nerves, muscles, etc. Our diet is creating grave damage to our digestive system and body. If we cannot digest the food, then it simply sits in wait and waste within our human body. If we are not digesting the physical food that we are eating, is it possible that we are not digesting the numerous events happening within our emotional state? Physical disease and ailment are often the last indication of imbalance within our emotional, spiritual and mental realms.

I am not a scientist, a chemist, or a doctor. But it is my desire to pass to you some of the knowledge that I have gained in my attempt to heal my own life and rid myself of the many medications once prescribed to me, some of which did me no good at all and some of which almost killed me.

Many of us live in fear, many of us live with grief and worry and many of us, due to varying circumstances, feel that the joy of life has faded. If we could all just "pause" for a deep breath, we could look at the many areas of our lives where demands could be shifted. Beginning at the foundation of our own survival system, I would say that many of us are running on nothing more than reserves. We truly are a "World in Chaos". And the internal chaos is one that only we, as an individual, can solve. Our body is our body, our emotions are our emotions and our thoughts are our thoughts. If we are to help heal America, we must begin to take responsibility for our own actions and decide what we would like our lives to look like in the future.

I hope that you will receive this information as a gift to yourself and use what applies to you (and your beliefs) and disregard that which does not apply. I had to examine my own beliefs and upbringing to understand that some of this information was used long before the advent of Western medication to cure even simple ailments. I then had to sit with God and examine whether or not I thought the information was in his best interest or whether it might be teachings of the devil that I could not trust.

In my stillness I realized that God wants each of us to be happy and healthy. If such things as acupuncture, massage, yoga, nutrition or herbs are thought of as "energy moving" modalities developed within countries that did not reference God in the same manner as I did or you do, it is not my intent to offend you. Again, I simply ask that you review your own soul and determine what best suits your lifestyle. Open your heart to the idea that good health is in the hands of the beholder (you). Genesis Chapter 1 shows us that God placed on this earth everything that we would need to survive. Simple changes in our way of living (good sweaty activity, slower lifestyles, saying grace before sitting down to enjoy a meal) could go far into extending the life we live or the lives of the ones we love. Please read this article with an open heart and mind – I had to. But in the end, I do not believe that God would want us to rush thru this precious life he has given so that we miss out on the good things he has provided. God is a loving God and wants us to love each other as we love ourselves. I hope you'll find something in here that will lead to whatever life you've always dreamed of and potential therapies that may serve your well-being. May happiness and peace be yours as you embark on the greatest journey of all – the idea that you can control your own destiny and health so that life, love and the pursuit of happiness are achieved.

God Bless,

How your organs age at different times (interesting fact)

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 01:06 PM PDT

A story of our body anatomy! Interesting article and it is worth reading!

Time: When your body really starts going downhill
There's no denying the ticking of a woman's biological clock - but men are not immune, either. French doctors have found that the quality of sperm starts to deteriorate by 35, so that by the time a man is 45 a third of pregnancies end in miscarriage. Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein identifies the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.


• BRAIN Starts ageing at 20
As we get older, the number of nerve cells - or neurons - in the brain decrease. We start with around 100 billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline. By 40, we could be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting memory, co-ordination and brain function.

In fact, while the neurons are important, it's actually the deterioration of the gaps between the brain cells that has the biggest impact, says Dr Wojtek Rakowicz, a consultant neurologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London . We all assume Grey hair and wrinkles are the first signs of aging, but some parts of your body are worn out long before you look old.

These tiny gaps between the end of one brain nerve cell and another are called synapses. Their job is to ensure the flow of information from one cell to another, and as we age we make fewer.


• GUT Starts aging at 55
A healthy gut has a good balance between harmful and 'friendly' bacteria.
But levels of friendly bacteria in the gut drop significantly after 55, particularly in the large intestine, says Tom MacDonald, professor of immunology at Barts And The London medical school. As a result, we suffer from poor digestion and an increased risk of gut disease.
Constipation is more likely as we age, as the flow of digestive juices from the stomach, liver, pancreas and small intestine slows down.


• BREASTS Starts aging at 35
BY their mid-30s, women's breasts start losing tissue and fat, reducing size and fullness.
Sagging starts properly at 40 and the areola (the area surrounding the nipple) can shrink considerably. Although breast cancer risk increases with age, it's not related to physical changes in the breast.

More likely, says Gareth Evans, breast cancer specialist at St Mary's Hospital, Manchester , our cells become damaged with age - as a result, the genes which control cell growth can mutate, causing cancer.


• BLADDER Starts ageing at 65
Loss of bladder control is more likely when you hit 65. The bladder starts to contract suddenly, even when it's not full.

Women are more vulnerable to bladder problems as, after the menopause, declining estrogen levels make tissues in the urethra - the tube through which urine passes - thinner and weaker, reducing bladder support.

Bladder capacity in an older adult generally is about half that of a younger person - about two cups in a 30-year-old and one cup in a 70-year-old.

This causes more frequent trips to the loo, particularly as poor muscle tone means the bladder may not fully empty. This in turn can lead to urinary tract infections.


• LUNGS Start ageing at 20
Lung capacity slowly starts to decrease from the age of 20.

By the age of 40, some people are already experiencing breathlessness. This is partly because the muscles and the rib cage which control breathing stiffen up.

It's then harder to work the lungs and also means some air remains in the lungs after breathing out - causing breathlessness.

Aged 30, the average man can inhale two pints of air in one breath. By 70, it's down to one.


• HEART Starts ageing at 40
The heart pumps blood less effectively around the body as we get older.

This is because blood vessels become less elastic, while arteries can harden or become blocked because of fatty deposits forming on the coronary arteries - caused by eating too much saturated fat.

The blood supply to the heart is then reduced, resulting in painful angina. Men over 45 and women over 55 are at greater risk of a heart attack.

A recent study by Lloyds Pharmacy found the average person in the UK has a 'heart age' five years older than their chronological age, probably due to obesity and lack of exercise.



• LIVER Starts ageing at 70
This is the only organ in the body which seems to defy the aging process.

'Its cells have an extraordinary capacity to regenerate,' explain David Lloyd, a consultant liver surgeon at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

He says he can remove half a liver during surgery and it will grow to the size of a complete liver within three months.

If a donor doesn't drink, use drug or suffer from infection, then it is possible to transplant a 70-year-old liver into a 20-year-old.



• KIDNEYS Starts ageing at 50
With kidneys, the number of filtering units (nephrons) that remove waste from the bloodstream starts to reduce in middle age.

One effect of this is their inability to turn off urine production at night, causing frequent trips to the bathroom.

The kidneys of a 75-year-old person will filter only half the amount of blood that a 30-year-old's will.


• PROSTATE Starts ageing at 50
The prostate often becomes enlarged with age, leading to problems such as increased need to urinate, says Professor Roger Kirby, director of the Prostate Centre in London . This is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia and affects half of men over 50, but rarely those under 40.

It occurs when the prostate absorbs large amounts of the male sex hormone testosterone, which increases the growth of cells in the prostate.

A normal prostate is the size of a walnut, but the condition can increase this to the size of a tangerine.


• BONES Start ageing at 35
'Throughout our life, old bone is broken down by cells called osteoclasts and replaced by bone-building cells called osteoblasts - a process called bone turnover,' explains Robert Moots, professor of rheumatology at Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool .

Children's bone growth is rapid - the skeleton takes just two years to renew itself completely. In adults, this can take ten years.

Until our mid-20s, bone density is still increasing. But at 35 bone loss begins as part of the natural ageing process.

This becomes more rapid in post-menopausal women and can cause the bone-thinning condition osteoporosis.

The shrinking in size and density of bones can lead to loss of height. Bones in the back shrivel up or crumble between the vertebrae. We lose two inches in height by the time we're 80.


• TEETH Start ageing at 40
As we age, we produce less saliva, which washes away bacteria, so teeth and gums are more vulnerable to decay.

Receding gums - when tissue is lost from gums around the teeth - is common in adults over 40.


• MUSCLES Start ageing at 30

Muscle is constantly being built up and broken down, a process which is well balanced in young adults.

However, by the time we're 30, breakdown is greater than buildup, explains Professor Robert Moots.

Once adults reach 40, they start to lose between 0.5 and 2 per cent of their muscle each year. Regular exercise can help prevent this..


• HEARING Starts ageing mid-50s
More than half of people over 60 lose hearing because of their age, according to the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.

The condition, known as presbycusis, happens due to a loss of 'hair cells' - tiny sensory cells in the inner ear which pick up sound vibrations and send them to the brain.


• SKIN Starts ageing mid-20s
The skin starts to age naturally in your mid-20s.

According to Dr Andrew Wright, a consultant dermatologist with Bradford NHS Trust, as we get older production of collagen - the protein which acts as scaffolding to the skin - slows, and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has less spring and can even break.

Dead skin cells don't shed as quickly and turnover of new skin cells may decrease slightly. This causes fine wrinkles and thin, transparent skin - even if the first signs may not appear until our mid-30s (unless accelerated by smoking or sun damage).


• TASTE AND SMELL Start ageing at 60
We start out in life with about 10,000 taste buds scattered on the tongue. This number can halve later in life.

After we turn 60, taste and smell gradually decline, partly as a result of the normal ageing process.

This can be accelerated by problems such as polyps in the nasal or sinus cavities. It can also be the cumulative effect of years of smoking.


• FERTILITY starts ageing at 35
Female fertility begins to decline after 35, as the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries start to fall.

The lining of the womb may become thinner, making it less likely for a fertilised egg to take, and also creating an environment hostile to sperm.

Male fertility also starts to drop around this age. Men who wait until their 40s before starting a family have a greater chance of their partner having a miscarriage, because of the poorer quality of their sperm.

• HAIR Starts ageing at 30
Male hair loss usually begins in the 30s. Hair is made in tiny pouches just under the skin's surface, known as follices.

A hair normally grows from each follicle for about three years, is then shed, and a new hair grows. However, with male-pattern baldness, changes in levels of testosterone from their early-30s affect this cycle, causing the hair follicles to shrink.

Each new hair is thinner than the previous one.. Eventually, all that remains is a much smaller hair follicle and a thin stump of hair that does not grow out to the skin surface. Most people will have some grey hair by the age of 35. When we are young, our hair is coloured by the pigments produced by cells in the hair follicle known as melanocytes. As we grow older, melanocytes become less active, so less pigment is produced, the colour fades, and grey hairs grow instead.



Penipuan Jurutera Komputer

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 12:53 PM PDT

Dunia memang penipuan, ada penipuan yang dapat kita jangkakan, ada pula penipuan yang tidak dijangkakan. Berita yang disiarkan oleh five tv UK semalam, menarik saya untuk mencoretkan sedikit nasihat kepada pembaca berkenaan penipuan serius yang dilakukan oleh kedai-kedai baiki komputer. Laporan dan kajian yang dilakukan adalah di beberapa buah kedai di London, tetapi saya yakin ia mungkin sahaja berlaku di tempat lain khususnya Malaysia.

Menurut laporan itu, pihak penyiasatan sengaja merosakkan sedikit komputer mereka dengan melonggarkan internal cip memori (amat muda untuk dibaiki). Kemudian, menyerahkannya ke beberapa buah kedai komputer untuk proses baikpulih.

Apa yang menarik, pada masa yang sama, mereka memasang sejenis alat khusus tersembunyi di komputer masing-masing berupa kamera, yang boleh merakam wajah techichan di hadapan screen komputer dan juga apa sahaja page yang ditekan oleh technician tersebut.

Keputusan yang diperolehi amat mengejutkan iaitu :-

1. Hanya satu kedai yang jujur terus terang memberitahu hanya kerosakan kecil dan ia dibaiki tanpa bayaran.

2. Semua kedai lain (hampir 5 buah), didapati membuka fail peribadi pemilik computer, melihat gambar peribadi pemilik computer, malah lebih dahsyat mereka turut menyalin sebahagian gambar dan maklumat peribadi.

3. Mereka juga cuba berkali-kali untuk akses ke laman internet banking yang digunakan oleh pemilik komputer, tetapi gagal kerana di dalam kes ini komputer yang dihantar adalah dirancang dan pemilik sengaja memasukkan butiran palsu. Ini bermakna jika orang biasa yang kerap memasuki internet banking melalui komputer kita yang rosak ini, maka dengan mudah pihak technician komputer boleh mencuri segala maklumat, malah boleh mengakses akaun bank kita juga.

4. Mereka juga boleh mengakses segala akaun email dan sebagainya kerana password kita yang boleh diperolehi dari komputer kita.

5. Mereka juga didapati menipu pelanggan apabila mengatakan kerosakan serius, ada yang mencadangkan pelanggan agar menukar motherboard computer yang berniali GBP 130 (RM750), sedangkan pihak penyiasat sengaja melonggar satu memori cip sahaja. Bayangkan bagaiamana penipuan sebegini dengan mudah berlaku dalam industry pembaikpulihan computer. Dalam kes ini, dua pihak telah membayar 'refund' kepada pihak penyiasatan apabila penipuan mereka dibongkarkan sejurus selepas itu. Malangnya, syarikat yang menipu bukan hanya syarikat kecil tetapi termasuk syarikat gergasi seperti PC World!.

Berdasarkan laporan di atas, saya suka menasihatkan orang ramai agar berifkir panjang dan membuat pilihan sebaik-baiknya sebelum menghantar lap top atau desktop anda untuk pemulihan.

Anda mungkin tiada gambar peribadi sexy yang ingin dirisaukan, tetapi bagaimana dengan maklumat perbankan internet, email, facebook dan sebagainya.

Jika ada peniaga, mekanik atau technichan computer yang membaca tulisan ini, sedarlah segala tindakan tersebut adalah haram di sisi Islam, dan segala keuntungan hasil penipuan juga haram.

Seseorang peniaga mungkin dengan mudah boleh memperolehi keuntungan ganda hasil menukar benda yang tidak perlu, tetapi ia merupakan satu penipuan yang hanya melayakkan seseorang untuk berada di neraka Allah swt. Hal yang sama juga mungkin berlaku semasa kita membaiki kereta, ditukarnya benda yang tidak rosak atau sengaja dirosakkan bahagian yang tidak rosak agar boleh mendapat caj yang lebih.

Beringat-ingatlah..

Bagi mereka yang berminat untuk menonton gelagat penipu komputer, SILA BUKA DI LINK BERIKUT . Ia disiarkan di beirta utama channel Five TV, United Kingdom.

killer cops

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 10:56 AM PDT

kugan… so said kugan's lawyer.

read all about it in malaysiakini's 'lawyer says it aloud – cops killed kugan' (full article below).

of course this is a view shared by many of us too, right? right!

custodial death… under the police. we heard that so often that now we don't bat an eyelid anymore if we hear about it again… but of course that doesn't mean we don't feel the rage. we do. we sure do. like the first custodial death under MACC of teoh beng hock – almost the whole nation felt the rage!!

have you heard of the latest case – r. gunasegaran?

A woman has disputed the official account of her brother's death, who died in police custody at the Sentul police station on July 16.

According to the police, R Gunasegaran, 31, had died from a drug abuse.

His sister, R Ganga Gowri, 32 (right), disagreed with this version in her police report today in which she alleged that he may have died after being assaulted.

This was claimed by three witnesses who were said to be detained in the same lockup with Gunasegaran, she stated in her police report.

death in custody again. and an indian again. what's wrong with the police???

WHAT'S WRONG WITH MALAYSIA???

my dear PM, najib, everything's wrong with your 1malaysia!!!!

coming back to kugan, his lawyer n. surendran, asked why none of the cops were charged when his torture and murder happened in january this year.

"We are running out of patience. If Kugan's murderers are not charged by the AG, we will carry out mass peaceful demonstrations calling for justice for Kugan," he warned.

"We have tried all other means. Nothing has worked. We will demonstrate, we will take to the streets, we will never stop until Kugan's murderers are brought to justice.

i support him if he calls for a demonstration. why, if it is in penang, i would join in too.   yes i hope he and others who are very concerned, will NOT stop calling for justice for kugan.  now the 'hot' issue is the cry of justice for teoh beng hock… while at it, we should not forget kugan too.

oh speaking of which i had stated in lim kit siang's blog that if najib refused to widen the scope of the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to probe into teoh beng hock's death, pakatan rakyat should organise protests. rally, forums… just like what they were doing before najib agree on a RCI.

kugan and beng hock's death should not happened at all but it did, so let's all stand up and voice our protest! let's all together push for justice! let's all kicked BN out at the coming election!!

Lawyer says it aloud – cops killed Kugan
S Pathmawathy
Jul 30, 09 5:12pm

The High Court will next Tuesday announce its decision on the preliminary objection from the prosecution over the return of Kugan Ananthan's post-mortem samples which were confiscated from the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) by the police.

The items that were seized include bodily fluids and tissue samples, photographs, documents and other materials relating to the post-mortem done on Kugan by a UMMC pathologist.

Kugan's family has earlier filed a court application to reclaim the seized items.

Kugan, 22, who was detained in January for alleged involvement in car theft, died after five days in police custody.

His family had rejected the initial post-mortem conducted by Dr Abdul Karim Tajuddin of Serdang Hospital, which stated that the Kugan had died from "fluid accumulation" in his lungs.

A second autopsy was done at UMMC at the request of the family, where pathologist Dr Prashant N Sambekar Prashant concluded that Kugan was severely beaten up resulting in kidney failure and death.

High Court Judge Ghazali Cha today heard written submissions from both the prosecution and lawyers representing Kugan's mother N Indra (left), who had filed the suit.

Deputy public prosecutor Noorin Badaruddin contended that the search warrant which was granted by the Petaling Jaya Magistrate Court on April 4 to allow the police to raid Prashant's office was not a "proceeding".

Noorin added that the family's application to reclaim the seized items was not lawful as the seizure was done to facilitate police investigations.

Furthermore, Noorin said Indra did not have locus standi in law to apply for her son's confiscated samples.

"Even if there is an application made or any action to question the search conducted, it can only be done by UMMC as it took place in their premise," said Noorin.

The suit named four police officers, including inspector-general of police Musa Hassan and criminal investigation department director Mohd Bakri Zinin, as respondents.

The other two are Petaling Jaya district police chief Arjunaidi Mohammed and the officer who raided the pathologist's office, ACP Mohd Marzukhi Mohd Mokhtar.

The case was classified as murder and 11 police officers were subsequently re-assigned to desk duties. Investigations have since been wrapped up, but no one has been charged.

'Why are the murderers walking free?'

Lawyer N Surendran, speaking to reporters outside the courtroom, lambasted attorney-general Abdul Gani Patail for not taking speedy action to identify and prosecute Kugan's murderers.

"We say it openly – the police killed Kugan. We have no doubt about it. If it is not true, they can charge us for criminal defamation…

"The death occurred because of murder and torture which happened in January but now it is now July, and we ask why are the murderers and torturers in uniform allowed to walk free in this country," expressed Surendran

"We are running out of patience. If Kugan's murderers are not charged by the AG, we will carry out mass peaceful demonstrations calling for justice for Kugan," he warned.

"We have tried all other means. Nothing has worked. We will demonstrate, we will take to the streets, we will never stop until Kugan's murderers are brought to justice.

"We are fed-up waiting and looking at this poor mother and seeing what this unjust state is doing to her… one would think that when the culprits have been identified, within one or two weeks, they would be charged," said Surendran.

The lawyer also likened Kugan's death to that of political aide Teoh Beng Hock and added that his death could have been avoided if "a royal commission was formed to review the interrogations process by both the police and other authorities".

"They allowed Kugan's case to remain unresolved and Teoh is now dead… all this at the doors of (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak). His hands are stained in blood because he didn't institute the necessary reforms," said Surendran.

JPN Pahang Is A Scrooge??

Posted: 30 Jul 2009 11:55 AM PDT

The Pahang English Debating Team arrived from Alor Star at 1.35 am just now. They lost to Perak who beat Negri Sembilan to win the championship.

Nevertheless congrats to SABS for beating Putrajaya and Penang. They have been very hardworking practising hard and travelling all the way to Alor Star..a journey of almost 9 hours oneway. Kudos to the teachers who made so many sacrifices too.

Naturally they all of course had to wait for the closing ceremony in the evening. And they only managed to leave Alor Star around 5 pm. Stopping only at Tapah around 9pm, the JPNP white van with their sole driver, 2 teachers and 5 students travelled in the darkness of the night with certain bright roads and certainly those dark ones.

My grumble is this..why couldn't the JPNP extend them another night's stay? Was it too expensive? They didn't mind risking the lives of the kind driver, two brave lady teachers who left their young families and 5 very feisty bubbly students?

Earlier on before their departure, I was wondering, couldn't JPNP spare them a budget to travel by plane? O I guess not. Such a facility is meant only for the pleasure of high-ranking officials probably..I suppose these people who went proudly to represent Pahang are not so important.

Next time, irregardless of whether my daughter gets included in any very faraway competition or not, I beg the JPNP not to allow any team representing Pahang to travel in the deep of the night.

Please extend their hotel stay. Do not gamble their lives and make parents feel like peeing in their pants waiting for their precious children.
The teachers too have loved ones waiting for them. Luckily the lone driver managed to control his fatigue.

And luckily the not-so-new van didn't breakdown or pancit tayar along the way in the middle of the night..Alhamdullillah syukur.

Please JPNP.. don't be insensitive to us parents and those going for the long journey...janganlah kedekut..kesianlah teachers and students..thank you.

P.S. Please do not wait for something bad to happen baru nak be more compromising and generous.
