Christmas Day 09 to Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar

Christmas Day 09 to Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar


Christmas Day 09 to Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 09:24 AM PST

Continued from previous post where I talk about going to the Jelutong seafront promenade, after that I thought of going to Queensbay Mall but I didn't know what to do at there. I believe there sure will be many people too because it's a public holiday, so we went somewhere else where we haven't been to before.

It's around 4pm, afternoon tea time, we went to the food stall at the market near to Sunshine Square at Bayan Lepas to eat our afternoon tea. I had a bowl of laksa there and they ordered themselves a bowl of tomyam noodle.

After tea time, there's 2 lame ideas for next destination, one is Auto City and another is Gertak Sanggul, Teluk Kumbar. I didn't feel like going to Auto City because I was there 3 days before Christmas so we went driving up to Gertak Sanggul for fun, pointless, it's just driving.

Was thinking to check out the beach or something near to the sea but found out that there's a bridge which connected out to the sea, and the bridge is broken and not usable. Too bad.

We were at the seaside in Jelutong and we were at the seaside again at Teluk Kumbar. I don't know this place is Gertak Sanggul or Teluk Kumbar. I like to call it Teluk Kumbar more, so any idea, precisely, this place is Gertak Sanggul or Teluk Kumbar? I think is somewhere between Gertak Sanggul and Teluk Kumbar.

There's sea, a good spot for sunset but we were early and we were so far away from sunset yet, like 1 hour more till sunset, moreover it was drizzling a little bit.

It started to rain a little bit and we ran away from there. Since there's no bridge, there's no beach, nothing much to see, we went to other place again. Christmas Day 09 haven't end yet!


Kerajaan, KDN Politikkan Isu Kalimah Allah

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 08:16 AM PST

Pakatan Rakyat membidas tindakan kerajaan Umno-BN dan Kementerian Dalam Negeri mempolitikkan isu penggunaan kalimah Allah untuk semata-mata meraih sokongan orang Melayu.

Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata kerajaan Umno-BN seharusnya bertindak mengadakan dialog dengan semua pihak berkepentingan dan tidak membiarkan isu itu melarat hingga ke peringkat mahkamah.

"Dan kini, setelah mahkamah membuat keputusan... Kementerian Dalam Negeri pula menyokong tunjuk perasaan oleh pelbagai pihak pada ketika emosi agama orang ramai melayang pada tahap yang begitu tinggi," kata Anwar.

"KDN jelas bersifat pilih bulu untuk membenarkan tunjuk perasaan tertentu dan memukul penujuk perasaan lain pada perhimpunan yang tidak digemarinya,' tambah Anwar.

Anwar berkata daripada memberi sokongan terbuka kepada protes dan tunjuk perasaan esok, kerajaan Umno-BN seharusnya menganjurkan dialog antara kumpulan berkepentingan bagi memastikan kepentingan Islam dan agama lain dipertahankan.

Beliau berkata dialog sedemikian akan memastikan penyelesaian yang rasional dan bersandarkan penelitian mendalam yang boleh diterima oleh semua pihak.

"Saya percaya kepada kebebasan bersuara tetapi KDN harus bersikap adil dan tidak memilih untuk menyokong kebebasan itu hanya dalam kes-kes tertentu," tambah Anwar. -TVS

Razaleigh raps Umno, praises PAS - Umno the dinosaur!

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 08:00 AM PST

'PAS is holding onto the more plural and moderate position while Umno is digging itself into an intolerant hardline position that has no parallel that...

Umno veteran leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who ticked off his party for failing to provide leadership in the row over the use of the term 'Allah' by non-Muslim, said today at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies' Regional Outlook Forum 2010, "In a milestone moment, PAS, the Islamic party, is holding onto the more plural and moderate position while Umno is digging itself into an intolerant hardline position that has no parallel that I know of in the Muslim world."


Christmas Day 09 at Jelutong Seafront Promenade

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 07:28 AM PST

Last year's Christmas Day was special and very spontaneous. I woke up in mid morning and I have nothing to do, just surf the net and watch the TV. Initially, I thought of going to Penang Times Square at around 2pm after lunch to check out the Leo Club's activity.

IMG_2105 by nicholaschan.

I went to find Chen Yuen and Chai Wei to go along, and when we were at Penang Times Square, there's a long queue for carpark, which made me change my mind not to go there. I hate waiting for car park, it's very very long.

IMG_2106 by nicholaschan.

We then spontaneously think of a place to go. The first stop was the Jelutong Seafront Promenade at Nautilus Bay, very unfamiliar name. I found this name on Google. =) It's the seafront promenade at Bandar Sri Pinang, the four pillars standing high are the place's sign.

IMG_2107 by nicholaschan.

We actually went there just for fun. No idea where to go and it's not planned. Just got down, walked and took photos for a while then we hopped back on to the car and go to somewhere else.

IMG_2108 by nicholaschan.

IMG_2109 by nicholaschan.

The afternoon was pretty hot but the place was very windy because it's seaside, though we didn't stay long at there.

Canadian Snipers - Making a Good Taliban

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 05:03 AM PST

This is a very disturbing video, and is only appropriate for adult audiences. It depicts death and violence.Video of Canadian snipers wiping out Taliban snipers in Afghanistan. The video shots were not made through the shooter's telescopic sight -- they were made looking through the spotter's scope. The spotter lies right next to the sniper and helps the sniper find and home in on the target.Canadian snipers fire special .50 caliber McMillan tactical rifles which are bolt-action weapons with five-round magazines. The .50 cal. round is about eight inches long and about an inch in diameter.



The bullet itself is one-half inch in diameter and roughly one and one-half inches long.Pay close attention to the beginning of the video. A Taliban sniper is laying on top of the peak in front of you...when you hear the shot fired watch what happens. The Canadian sniper is about a half-mile away from the target.A Canadian sniper in Afghanistan has been confirmed as hitting an enemy soldier at a range of 2,310 meters or 1.434miles, at the time the longest recorded and confirmed sniper shot in history. The previous record of 2,250 meters was set by US Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock in Vietnam in 1967. The Canadian sniper was at an altitude of 8,500 feet and the target, across a valley, was at 9,000 feet.

Canadian sniper units often operate in support of US infantry units, which are very grateful for their help. The record lasted only one day, until another Canadian sniper hit an enemy soldier at 2,400 meters (8000 feet or 1.515 miles).The Canadian snipers were the only Canadian troops operating without helmets or flak jackets as they had too much other equipment to carry. Each three-man team has one sniper rifle and three standard Canadian C7 rifles, one of which is equipped with a 203mm grenade launcher, which fires assorted rounds of 40mm shells.

240 Ribu Belum Berdaftar Sebagai Pengundi Di Kelantan?

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 04:29 AM PST

Lebih 240,000 rakyat Kelantan yang layak mengundi belum mendaftar sebagai pemilih sekalipun pelbagai langkah telah diambil oleh Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) agar mereka berbuat demikian.

Pengarah SPR Negeri Ab. Rahim Md Salleh berkata jumlah itu adalah sebahagian daripada 1.4 juta penduduk Kelantan yang telah melewati usia 21 tahun dan layak mengundi.

"Jumlah itu boleh dikatakan agak tinggi berbanding negeri-negeri lain. Entah di mana silapnya, pelbagai cara telah dilakukan termasuk melantik agen dari wakil parti politik," katanya kepada Bernama di sini hari Khamis.

Beliau berkata keadaan itu mungkin berpunca daripada sikap sambil lewa rakyat selain suka mendaftar pada saat-saat akhir ketika pilihan raya semakin dekat.

Bagi menggalakkan golongan itu mendaftar, Ab. Rahim berkata pihaknya kini membuka kaunter bergerak di pasar raya seluruh Kelantan.

"Pembukaan kaunter itu lebih menyenangkan kerana orang ramai tidak lagi perlu pergi ke pejabat pos atau pejabat tanah jajahan semata-mata untuk mendaftar sebaliknya sebelum atau selepas membeli belah, mereka boleh mendaftar di kaunter yang dibuka," katanya. -Bernama

Ulasan GB

GB tertanya-tanya apakah ada agenda SPR mengumumkan jumlah mereka yang belum mengundi sebegitu ramai, 240,000 orang?

Jika kita masih ingat, jumlah pengundi begitu ramai di Terengganu dimana di dalam PRU yang lalu, jumlah pengundi keseluruhannya di negeri itu mencecah kira-kira 516,000 orang daripada jumlah satu juta keseluruhan penduduk negeri itu.

Apakah modus operandi yang serupa akan dilakukan di kelantan sebagai usaha untuk merampas Kelantan dari PAS?

Perhimpunan: Najib Kata OK, Musa Hassan Kata Jangan

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 03:54 AM PST

Kerajaan di bawah pimpinan Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak semakin celaru mengenai isu kalimah Allah.

Untuk mendapatkan sokongn orang Melayu terhadap partinya, Najib dilaporkan berkata, Kerajaan tidak akan menghalang orang ramai yang ingin mengadakan perhimpunan di masjid-masjid selepas solat Jumaat esok bagi membantah mingguan Katholik menggunakan nama 'Allah'.

Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak diminta mengulas sama ada kerajaan mengamalkan sikap berbeza terhadap kumpulan tertentu yang menganjurkan demonstrasi.

Bantahan terhadap penggunaan kalimah 'Allah' dalam Herald The Catholic Weekly terus marak walaupun Najib sebelumnya menyeru semua pihak bertenang.


Najib berkata semua pihak perlu menyerahkan kepada Mahkamah Tinggi bagi menyelesaikan isu semasa.

"Kita perlu mengambil sikap bahawa perkara ini perlu diselesaikan melalui mahkamah secara baik.. kita sepatutnya tidak menaikkan tahap ketegangan di negara ini.

"Tapi walau apapun, pihak berkuasa sentiasa bersedia dan saya berharap jika ada orang yang mahu menunjuk perasaan, ia tidak akan merebak sehingga menjadi sesuatu yang amat serius... moga-moga ia hanya tunjuk perasaan yang minimum," katanya.

Sementara itu, Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Musa Hassan memberi amaran kepada mana-mana pihak yang berhasrat untuk berhimpun bagi membantah isu penggunaan kalimah Allah esok agar membatalkannya sebelum tindakan tegas diambil.

Beliau yang memantau secara serius perkara itu berkata polis tidak akan berkompromi dengan mana-mana pihak yang cuba mengeruh dan menjejaskan keselamatan negara.

"Jangan buat sesuatu tindakan yang boleh mengusutkan keadaan, kita perlu bertenang kerana ia melibatkan isu agama yang menjadi isu sensitif," kata beliau selepas merasmikan Seminar Pengurusan Inovasi dan Kualiti PDRM di sini hari ini.

Beberapa Badan Bukan Kerajaan (NGO) yang dijangka berhimpun secara aman bagi membantah penggunaan kalimah Allah oleh Herald Catholic di beberapa masjid di ibu negara selepas solat Jumaat, esok.

Beliau berkata polis tidak mengeluarkan permit kepada mana-mana permohonanuntuk berhimpun meskipun ia adalah perhimpunan secara aman.

Beliau berkata semua pihak perlu bertenang dan memberi ruang kepada mahkamah untuk menyelesaikan isu itu dan jangan membuat kenyataan yang boleh menaikkan semangat serta kemarahan orang ramai.

Semalam Hakim Mahkamah Tinggi Datuk Lau Bee Lan menangguhkan pelaksanaan perintah yang membenarkan penggunaan kalimah Allah dalam penerbitan itu setelah Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail yang mewakili Menteri Dalam Negeri dan peguam mewakili Gereja Katolik, Derek Fernandes mencapai kata sepakat supaya perintah itu ditangguh sementara menunggu rayuan.

Laporan sebelum ini menyebut selain Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) merancang mengadakan bantahan di seluruh negara esok Pertubuhan Kebajikan dan Dakwah Islamiah (Pekida) juga akan menganjurkan bantahan yang sama.

Bantahan yang dinamakan 'Satu hati mempertahankan kesucian Islam' diadakan selepas solat di Masjid Negara.

Selain itu, dua NGO Islam berpengaruh Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia dan Persatuan Kebangsaan Pelajar Islam Malaysia akan berhimpun di masjid Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur pada waktu yang sama.


Hati-hati mandi di Port Dickson!

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 02:51 AM PST

Dari email yg aku terima dari seorang sahabat.











Kawan aku bersama keluarganya pergi menghabiskan cuti persekolahan di Corus Paradise Rasort Port Dickson hari Sabtu lepas, pada petang itu dia bersama dengan anak perempuannya mandi manda ditepi pantai berdekatan resort, ketika sedang mandi tiba tiba kakinya seakan digigit sesuatu dan menariknya ke laut. Beliau melepaskan anaknya dari pelukan sambil menjerit meminta tolong. dan anak tersebut sempat diambil oleh ibu kawan aku itu. Dengan pantas seorang lelaki pergi mendapatkan kawan aku nih yg terus dibawa ke laut. Dalam keadaan cemas itu, lelaki tersebut terus menarik kawan aku itu dengan kuat, kemudian dia sempat melihat apa yg telah menarik kaki kawan aku itu...seekor BUAYA!!...

Kawan aku terus dibawa ke klinik (tidak ke hospital port dickson kerana gak jauh dan kakinya mengalami pendarahan teruk) selepas itu kawan aku terus dibawa balik Hospital Melaka. Di hospital Melaka beliau dimasukkan ke ICU. Sekarang keadaan kaki beliau agak serius kerana urat kaki byk yg putus dan jari2nya tidak dapat digerakkan. Persoalannya disini...macamana buaya boleh ada ditepi pantai, kalau seorang dewasa boleh ditarik kelaut, apa cerita pulak kalau budak2?? bila aku dapat tau cerita ini..hati jadi kecut untuk mandi manda di pantai port dickson.. Ada sesiapa lagi yg tahu cerita ini? Dengarnya perkara BUAYA bukan perkara baru di pantai Port Dickson..kenapa perkara2 ini perlu disembunyikan?

Digigit ikan besar
Oleh Mohamad Yatim Latip
am@hmetro.com.my


MELAKA: Percutian seorang posmen bersama 15 anggota keluarganya di pantai peranginan Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan menjadi mimpi ngeri apabila dia dipercayai digigit seekor ikan besar ketika mandi berhampiran sebuah apartmen di situ, Sabtu lalu.Susulan kejadian itu, mangsa, Mohamad Helmi Leman, 25, yang menetap di Kampung Air Limau, Masjid Tanah di sini, terpaksa menerima 50 jahitan dan kini masih dirawat di Hospital Melaka (HM) selepas ahli keluarganya meminta dia dipindahkan ke sini kira-kira jam 3 petang hari kejadian dari Hospital Port Dickson. Mohamad Helmi berkata, kejadian berlaku ketika dia sedang mandi bersama 10 anggota keluarganya kira-kira jam 8.30 pagi pada hari kejadian.

Menurutnya, ketika itu, mereka sudah menghabiskan masa selama setengah jam bermandi-manda di situ. Katanya, ketika asyik mandi di dalam air paras dada, tiba-tiba dia terasa pergelangan kaki kanan serta bahagian tapak kakinya itu direnggut seekor binatang yang disangkanya buaya.

"Ketika itu saya terasa suatu objek tajam dan bergigi merenggut kaki kanan saya menyebabkan saya amat terkejut. Sejurus itu, saya cuba merentap kaki saya tetapi haiwan berkenaan tidak melepaskan gigitannya dan sama-sama 'bertarung' selama tempoh kira-kira dua saat," katanya ketika ditemui di wad HM di sini semalam.

Menurut Mohamad Helmi, gigitan berkenaan menyebabkan pergelangan pangkal bawah buku lali sehingga tapak kaki kanannya mengalami luka teruk dan mengeluarkan banyak darah. Katanya, sebaik anggota keluarga lain menyedari dia digigit sesuatu, mereka terus membawanya ke darat sebelum menghubungi ambulans.

"Meskipun mengalami kecederaan parah dan dalam kesakitan, namun saya masih sedar ketika dibawa ke Hospital Port Dickson. Bagaimanapun, ahli keluarga saya terutama isteri, Sabariah Karim meminta supaya saya dipindahkan ke HM bagi memudahkan mereka melawat," katanya. Sementara itu, Mohamad Helmi berkata, orang kampung di kawasan itu mengesyaki kejadian terbabit disebabkan ikan yu memandangkan ketika ini mereka mendakwa musim ikan berkenaan berkeliaran di situ

Protecting the Environment is a CRIME !

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 02:44 AM PST

MIRI, Dec 28 — Sahabat Alam Malaysia can be deregistered as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) if there is proof that it is involved in activities which threaten the nation's interest, says the Registrar of Societies (RoS) Datuk Mohd Alias Kalil.

He said the ROS office had yet to receive an official complaint against SAM which had been actively involved in activities against commercial logging and plantation development, besides the building of dams in this country.

Speaking at a news conference while visiting the RoS office here today, he said more information was required before it could take action against the organisation which has been active for over 30 years.

He gave the assurance that the RoS office would monitor SAM closely and any other NGO which acted extremely in fighting for their cause.

He said the relevant agencies under the Home Ministry should also take follow-up action to ensure that organisations do not operate illegally after their registration with RoS had been cancelled.

Mohd Alias said throughout the year, 705 organisations were deregistered.

He said only a small number of cases were due to their flouting regulations which allowed them to operate legally.

"Most of the organisations were deregistered because they failed to submit their annual reports," he said. — Bernama

Zin, please dare to Dream and dare to do any thing because Allah had created all human equal

Zin, please dare to Dream and dare to do anything because Allah had created all human equal.

Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.  ~Les Brown. Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion.  You must set yourself on fire.  ~Arnold H. Glasow

If anyone wishes to call me a megalomaniac, let them call me any name. Idare to xmillion times but not just exaggerated  x4 as some people wrongly thought.  I dare to dream and have the courage to try hard. If failed, I dare to start again or I try ways to use those failures as the pillars for my success. Alhamdullilah, Almighty Allah would definitely help me as HE had done before!

Because Allah had created all human equal and I don't think anyone or anything is too great that I need to avoid addressing or dreaming. That great person may be a King or the President or the Prime Minister or a very rich and influential cooperate leader, I will never hesitate to communicate. But I would always pay my greatest respect but I dare to ask the favour or any legitimate request. (But never the monetary request.) But I am always scared about one thing, i.e. the anger of Allah for not asking from the Almighty but depending on the other human being. The story of our Nabi Yunus' failure to doa' directly from Allah and asked the help of the fellow prisoner who was going to release always frightened me because Allah made him forget about the request for seven years. So I used to pray to Allah first and I always declare that if Allah agrees only the great leader who is a mere human being would be able to help me.

(But I used to avoid the mad, drunkard or bad gangster like people because they could blindly harm me.)

You know Zin, I had written to General Ne Win and General Khin Nyunt when they were in power. I wrote to Malaysia's first PM, previous King of Malaysia, Sultan, TDM, Senior Minister LKY, TAAB, DSAI, Bush and numerous other political, cooperate leaders university authorities etc. I wrote politely, give my views and sometimes requested for favour. Actually all of them are great and never harm me but I got the good responses on most of the time.

If we failed to voice out our request how these great leaders could understand or know our needs. FYI Allah had granted most of my wishes through them.

Zin, I dared to Dream anything. Dare to be first in the class, university and the whole country although my memories, intelligence and skills are just the average. But Allah had fulfilled almost all of my wishes with success. Just read back my previous postings.

You see, I had even changed or made a small history in Malaysia. UM/UHKL had accepted Burmese MOs, Specialists and Master students. RM One coins were withdrawn by Bank Negara after my letter in the Star. Some my achievements should be kept as a secret and I hope you would kindly put in my blog after I pass away.

the police in sabah ask the christians to call off the protest in view of the sensitivity of the issue… then why can't the police here do the same thing? you and i know why!

Anak jantan Mummy loves toy guns! He runs around the house with his pistol fiercely; makes horrible firing sound, trying to shoot me people dead. When the battery died on him; he still runs around; trying to shoot me people dead by pointing the gun at me us and scream Pang! Pang! Pang! Fire! Fire! Fire!

Exco member slams police

Suspect identified, but we are waiting for directive from DPP, says Selangor police chief

polisKHALID: Called for patience

PETALING JAYA: Police have identified a man in connection with a rape threat made against Selangor State exco member Rodziah Ismail. 

However, she slammed Selangor police chief DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar  for moving too slowly in the investigation.

The rape threat was made against Rodziah when she was involved in helping to relocate a Hindu temple in Shah Alam a few months ago.

"I met Datuk Khalid a few weeks ago and I asked him about the status of my complaint. I have provided the police with evidence. I hope they can speed up the investigation and the man will be taken to court soon," she told The Malay Mail yesterday.

However, Khalid said the Selangor police have never treated the Opposition parties unfairly.

"Every investigation has its own merit, sometimes it can be a long one. Every detail is important. I hope the Opposition leaders will not make unfair comments about the police. Let us all be patient."

Khalid confirmed that the police have already identified the man, in his 30s, behind the sexual threat against Rodziah but are waiting for the okay from the Deputy Public Prosecutor before taking action against the man.

Meanwhile, another Selangor State government exco member, Teresa Kok, said she was glad that a 35-year-old man, who allegedly posted a death threat against her in her blog, had been arrested on Dec 16.

"As long as the case is solved, I am more than happy to hear it," she said, adding that the Selangor police chief had informed her of the arrest on Tuesday night.

"It shows that the police have taken my report seriously."

The suspect was released on bail after his statement was recorded.


Mobile Phone Radiation 'Protects' Against Alzheimers - bbc online

Mobile phone radiation 'protects' against Alzheimer's

Mice were exposed to signals from a centrally-located antenna
Mice were exposed to signals from a centrally-located antenna
After all the concern over possible damage to health from using mobile phones, scientists have found a potential benefit from radiation.

Their work has been carried out on mice, but it suggests mobiles might protect against Alzheimer's.

Florida scientists found that phone radiation actually protected the memories of mice programmed to get Alzheimer's disease.

They are now testing more frequencies to see if they can get better results.

The study by the Florida Alzheimer's Disease Research Centre is published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.

Genetically altered mice
We don't recommend spending 24 hours a day on a mobile phone - we don't know the long-term effects, and bills could go through the roof

It involved 96 mice, most of which had been genetically altered to develop beta-amyloid plaques in their brains, which are a marker of Alzheimer's disease, as they aged.

The rest of the mice were non-demented.

All the mice were exposed to the electro-magnetic field generated by a standard phone for two one-hour periods each day for seven to nine months.

Their cages were arranged at the same distance around a centrally located antenna generating the phone signal.

The researchers, led by Professor Gary Arendash, said that if the phone exposure was started when the Alzheimer's mice were young adults, before signs of memory impairment were apparent, their cognitive ability was protected.

In fact, the Alzheimer's mice performed as well on tests measuring memory and thinking skills as aged mice without dementia.

If older Alzheimer's mice already showing memory problems were exposed to the electro-magnetic waves, their memory impairment disappeared.

Professor Arendash was the author of a previous study that said coffee could protect against Alzheimer's.
He said: "It will take some time to determine the exact mechanisms involved in these beneficial memory effects.

"One thing is clear, however - the cognitive benefits of long-term electro-magnetic exposure are real, because we saw them in both protection and treatment-based experiments involving Alzheimer's mice, as well as in normal mice."

Memory benefits

The memory benefits of phone exposure took months to show up, suggesting that a similar effect in humans would take years.

The researchers conclude that electro-magnetic field exposure could be an effective, non-invasive and drug-free way to prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease in humans.

They are currently testing whether different sets of frequencies and strengths might produce a more rapid and greater cognitive benefit.

Chuanhai Cao, another author of the study, said: "Since production and aggregation of beta-amyloid occurs in traumatic brain injury, particularly in soldiers during war, the therapeutic impact of our findings may extend beyond Alzheimer's disease."

The authors say previous studies have linked a possible increased risk of Alzheimer's with "low-frequency" electro-magnetic exposure like the energy waves generated by power and telephone lines.

They say mobile phones emit "high frequency" electro-magnetic waves that are very different because they can have beneficial effects on brain function, such as increasing brain cell activity.

Organs normal

They did carry out autopsies on the mice and found no evidence of abnormal growth in the brains of the Alzheimer's mice following months of exposure to the electro-magnetic waves.

They also found all the major peripheral organs, such as the liver and lungs, were normal.
Rebecca Wood, chief executive of the Alzheimer's Research Trust, said: "This research has been carried out in mice that mimic some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's in people, so we don't know if any similar effects will be seen in humans.

"Although the researchers hope their findings will translate to people, much more research is needed to find out if there could be any beneficial effects of long-term exposure to electro-magnetism, and to guarantee its safety.

"We don't recommend spending 24 hours a day on a mobile phone - we don't know the long-term effects, and bills could go through the roof."

Dr Susanne Sorensen, head of research at the Alzheimer's Society, said the results were "exciting and quite convincing".

"However, this research in mice is at an early stage and a lot more work is needed before we can say anything about the possible preventative or treatment effects of this type of radiation on people with Alzheimer's disease."

Cameron - The last day

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 12:21 AM PST

On the last day, we headed to Boh Plantation's factory and estate, it was a long journey on a very narrow and winding road. Sorry no pictures on the drive trip, had to concentrate on the driving...

Had to park far from the factory due to too many visitors that day, we had to park near a Tamil school (only a small building). Everybody to walk uphill...

Of Children And Cats

Posted: 07 Jan 2010 01:46 AM PST

Momo and Cashper must be having their radar system in a bit of a glitch.

Last Saturday, Cashper did his business behind our TV in the bedroom. I was told he even vomitted on the carpet in the laundry room. Well..Banun did the cleaning-up..afterall they are more of her cats..

And just now, Momo did her ladies biz on the carpet, on the chair and a bit on Harris's studying table..Wow she must have had a running business.

Harris must not know that a bit of poop got to his books..otherwise he'll turn into a gigantic Hulk just like the dad.

A few days ago, after dinner, Banun received a booming scolding from her father..
"Bannnnnuuuuuunnn! You get out of the house!!!!"

Hey..don't be alarmed! Its a normal thundering sound when the big boss is really very angry..thats the time when all of us noisy bees stop buzzing.
I've been told to scram many times..and I'm still at home??

Imagine..after securing 7As and 1B for her PMR, she wants to take up Commerce..
" Its my preference! I'm the one whos going to do the studying!"

Next morning on the way to school, I reminded Banun that she can only make her own decisions after shes gotten a good degree and is FINANCIALLY independent..
Even J listens to us..since we're still helping her balance her budget.
Hakim listens to us a lot..because he has been away abroad for so long and he still misses us even though hes back in Malaysia.

My children can always negotiate and do that bursa saham discussion with me.
But once the father's booming voice erupts..everything is settled!
The pasar malam bargaining ends!

"Baba has sacrificed so much for you all..you are going to regret a lot if you don't listen to him..just look at me..I wish I can see aruah nenek just for a few minutes and tell her how sorry I am for being so stubborn and not listening to her many times!"

After a full driving-cum-lecture of about 8 minutes, she replied.." Ok Ok! I ambik Sains!"

Like most/some fathers, Dato' is more of a doting father than a loving husband. But I'm not complaining anymore.
He can continue with Ms I during the day and Ms B at night!
I'm fortunate that theres a sleeping volcano in the house to diffuse the tiny crackling sounds in the house.
My kids are not afraid of me..but they shy and droop their heads infront of the 'godfather'.

We've decided to throw Hakim's wedding reception in KL.
It'll probably be in Eastin..InsyaALLAH.

p.s..Ms Internet and Ms Bolster!
And I have to get my left leg x-rayed..macam ada wayar rosak didalam..the bionic lady dah short-circuit sikit..and pensioner Zen is still having a gala time climbing rough and dangerous hilly terrains. Not fair!

Hai Pi.. After breakfast I saw this mid-thirties guy standing quite lama at the back of our stationery car. I was wondering..ni tukang tarik kereta ke..he was well-built but alone?
Cannot be lah..anyway instalment kereta dah beres.
Then baru Dato' and I realised..this guy was having some kind of nerve disorder and he was walking so slowly..step by step like a wooden soldier..
I felt momentarily depressed and sad..how we often take our good health for granted.

Somebody broke the car mirror on the driver's side..this car is an old 26 year old Benz..still can run around like a rabbit in town..but I don't think it'll be strong enough for long distance driving..
We parked it outside every night thinking that nobody would want to bash an old antique.
Terbang 200 plus repair cermin!

Dato' is also selling a very old antique manual Benz at 5 k..he bought it for 9k a couple of years ago.
I think its a 1970s model. Now parked at a friend's place. Repairs definitely needed..thats why its under the antique category..anybody interested?

And this morning? In my hurry to send Banun and Harris to school, I reversed into somebody's car parked under a tree in front of our house..bodoh betul..kenapa park situ???
Terbang lagi $$$ ketuk kereta..
Hoi!!
