Skandal Kapalselam: Pendakwaraya Perancis Mulakan Siasatan


Skandal Kapalselam: Pendakwaraya Perancis Mulakan Siasatan

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 09:22 AM PDT

Pejabat Pendakwaraya Perancis telah diminta memulakan siasatan ke atas unsur rasuah dalam penjualan kapal selam kepada Malaysia semasa Perdana Menteri Najib Tun Razak menjadi Menteri Pertahanan.

Siasatan itu turut membabitkan penjualan kapal selam oleh syarikat DCN dan anak syarikatnya Amaris kepada beberapa Negara lain termasuk India dan Pakistan.

Penjualan kapal selam membabitkan dakwaan sekutu Najib di bayar komisyen lebih lima ratus juta ringgit telah lama membelenggui perdana menteri.

Malah pembayaran komisyen itu dikaitkan kepada pembunuhan warga Mogolia Altantuya Sharibuu pada tahun 2006.

Menurut Malaysiakini, dua hakim Peranchis Francoise Besset and Jean-Christophe Hullin, sedang menyiasat dakwaan pemimpin-pemimpin politik Peranchis terbabit dalam kegiatan rasuah dalam menjual peralatan ketenteraan kepada Negara-negara seperti Malaysia.

Suaram, sebuah pertubuhan hak asasi di Malaysia, mengupah peguam untuk mendesak pejabat pendakwaraya Peranchis bagi turut menyiasat penjualan dua kapal selam kepada tetentra laut di raja Malaysia.

Suaram mengambil tindakan itu kerana dikatakan mempunyai bukti kukuh wujudnya unsure rasuah dalam penjualan kapal selam kepada Malaysia.

Beberapa pihak membuat laporan kepada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia dan polis namun tidak ada tindakan susulan diambil.

Pelbagai pihak mendakwa Altantuya telah ke Malaysia untuk menuntut komisyen beliau berjumlah setengah juta dolar amerika syarikat bersabit penjualan kapal selam itu sebelum beliau mati dibom Oktober 2006.

Najib nafi mengenali Altantuya, namun penyiasat persendirian P. Balasubramniam mendakwa Perdana Menteri mempunyai hubungan dengan bekas model Mongolia itu.

Ahli Parlimen Petaling Jaya Utara, Tony Phua ketika dihubungi Tv Selangor berkata, beliau berharap pihak Perancis berjaya menyelesaikan perkara tersebut.

"Saya harap pihak perancis akan menyiasat perkara ini dengan terperinci dan segala apa-apa penyalahgunaan kuasa ataupun rasuah ataupun lain-lain perkara tindakan akan diambil sepatutnyalah". -TVS

Hujan Ribut Paksa Muhyiddin Bingkas Tinggalkan Khemah, 4 Cawangan MIC Bubar

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 08:07 AM PDT

Hujan ribut melanda Hulu Selangor sehingga khemah pentas untuk Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, dan orang kenamaan (VIP) yang menghadiri upacara pecah tanah bagi pembinaan Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Bukit Tangga, Bukit Sentosa, Bukit Beruntung di sini, hampir tumbang petang tadi, lapor Berita Harian.

Ia berlaku kira-kira jam 3 petang ketika Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Kuala Kubu Baru, Wong Koon Mun, hendak berucap pada majlis berkenaan.

Muhyiddin dan semua orang kenamaan termasuk Timbalan Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan Umno negeri, Datuk Seri Noh Omar; Timbalan Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai; Setiausaha Agung MCA, Datuk Kong Cho Ha; Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran, Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, dan Ketua Pengarah Pelajaran, Tan Sri Alimuddin Md Dom, terpaksa bangun meninggalkan tempat duduk masing-masing.

Petunjuk apakah itu?

Empat cawangan MIC Hulu Selangor dibubarkan membabitkan lebih 1,200 ahli sejurus selepas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin mengumumkan Ketua Penerangan MIC, P Kamalanathan sebagai calon Barisan Nasional, demikian lapor Suara Keadilan..

Dalam satu majlis penerangan kerajaan negeri Selangor di Dewan Komuniti Bukit Sentosa, Ketua Cabang Parit Sulong Hasmi Hashim berkata empat cawangan terbabit ialah cawangan Batang Kali, Taman Wawasan, Ladang Ulu Tamu dan Ulian Baru.

"Kemungkinan 13 cawangan MIC lagi akan dibubarkan kerana tidak setuju dengan campur tangan Umno dalam pemilihan calon MIC bagi Hulu Selangor.

"Isyarat ini jelas menunjukkan rakyat di Hulu Selangor tidak lagi yakin terutamanya masyarakat India yang berada di peringkat akar umbi.

"Calon yang dikatakan kononnya calon jalan tengah bukan calon pilihan MIC tetapi Umno maka jelaslah di sini MIC tidak mempunyai suara tetapi Umno yang telah menetapkan calon untuk MIC," kata Hasmi.

Sebelum ini, satu laporan berita mengatakan bahawa semua cawangan MIC di Hulu Selangor akan ditutup jika jika tuntutan mereka agar Datuk G Palanivel dicalonkan ditolak.

Pemuda Gerakan: Muhyiddin tak layak jadi TPM

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 07:02 AM PDT

Setiausaha Pemuda Gerakan Dominic Lau Hoe Chai (gambar) menganggap Muhyiddin Yassin tidak layak untuk menjadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri kerana kenyataannya yang hanya membela kaum tertentu dan tidak mengambil kira perasaan seluruh rakyat.

Beliau berkata sedemikian ketika mengulas seruan Muhyiddin Yassin agar Melayu jangan berhenti mempertahankan kepentingan Melayu dan bumiputera hanya kerana takut dilabel sebagai rasis. Pemuda Gerakan berasa kesal dengan kenyataan "yang tidak sepatutnya keluar dari mulut TPM" ini, kerana jelas membela kaum tertentu dan tidak mengambil perasaan seluruh rakyat.

"Seandainya Muhyiddin mengeluarkan kenyataan sedemikian sebagai Naib Presiden UMNO, kenyataan ini bertujuan untuk membela hak bumiputera dari sudut Melayu. Tetapi sebagai TPM seluruh rakyat, hujah sedemikian tidak boleh diterima," katanya.

"Bertitik tolak daripada itu, Muhyiddin hanya layak menjadi Naib Presiden UMNO dan tidak layak menjadi TPM untuk seluruh rakyat. Beliau harus sedar bahawa dasar afirmatif harus merangkumi semua kaum dan bukannnya kaum tertentu," tambah Dominic Lau Hoe Chai.

Selain itu, Dominic Lau berkata, di banyak negara yang lain, dasar digubal untuk membela kaum minoriti dengan memberikan jagaan yang istimewa kepada golongan ini. Sebaliknya, di Malaysia, tumpuan diberikan kepada kaum yang terbesar, dengan hak istimewa yang dinikmatinya. Dari perspektif antarabangsa, ia kurang wajar dan jelas kurang adil kepada kaum minoriti.

Dominic berkata demikian ketika mengulas kenyataan Muhyiddin bahawa seandainya Model Ekonomi Baru (MEB) ingin memenuhi keperluan semua kaum, maka golongan sasaran harus dikaji. Di Malaysia, orang Melayu dan bumiputera mencakupi 60% populasi, adalah golongan sasaran terbesar yang mempunyai keperluan terbesar.

Ulasan GB

Yes. Pemuda Gerakan. Lu hantam cukup-cukup itu Muhyiddin, rasis yang tak sedar diri.



Sister Paper And Tree Planting

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 06:02 AM PDT

The day has been a busy one with me running around like some headless chicken trying to get thing organized for a client of mine. I'm practically back logged with work for one client that I have to put two others on the back burner for a bit. Which really is not a good thing but what to do, that happens when you're your own boss and you take on too much work.

I'm not going to enjoy the weekend cos I have to work tomorrow and it's like going to be a full day of running around again ... siggghhh ... there goes my weekend. The good thing is, month end will come faster and I am really looking forward to next month cos me and my two best buddies families have planned a holiday together for nice three day getaway to Malacca. I'm really looking forward to that. A chance to recharge my batteries :D

So, today I get this client, an elderly man who comes to me and says he wants to print a poster. Sure, no problems, that can be done pretty easily.

'What kind of material do your want this printed on? I ask him. 

'You got sister paper, ah?' he says. 

'Sister paper?' I utter. 

'Aiyyaaa, you don't know sister paper, ah? he retorts. 

'No, I haven't heard of sister paper' I say. 

Aiyaaa, you in the printing line and don't know what sister paper is? he remarks.

Still kinda puzzled, I take a paper sample and show him. He looks at it and immediately says, 

'Ya, ya, this one is sister paper. This is the one I want.'

'This sir, is called synthetic paper' I educate him.

He looks at me and in a slightly annoyed voice says, 

'Aiyyaaaa, you in this line you should advise me the name of the paper la ....'

I'm stunned speechless! How the heck was I supposed to know sister paper meant synthetic paper? Idiot, he doesn't know the proper name for it and I get the blame.

Now on an entirely different subject altogether. I'm going to have a tree name after my blog, well at least I think so. I was reading Nessa's post and she was mumbling something about having a tree named after her blog.

For a while the I was wondering just what the heck that girl was talking about but after reading her post, I'm all excited about it.

The Arbor Day Foundation has started a project to plant a tree for your blog. 'My blog is carbon neutral' originally started in Germany by the 'Make it Green' programme as an initiative to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

They'll plant a tree for your blog, yes, a real tree, not some virtual or non-existent tree but an honest to goodness real tree to neutralize your blog's carbon footprint for the next 50 year. Is that cool or what?

And it's really very simple to get your own tree. Just write a short post like what I just did about their programme 'My blog is carbon neutral', ok, maybe my post wasn't all that short ... hehehe ... and include one of the buttons available on their site. Then email the link of your post to CO2-neutral@kaufda.de and they will plant a nice beautiful tree for your blog in Plumas.


Don't ask me where Plumas is cos my Geography is pathetic. I'll just go Google it up later. Oh and the scheduled planting date is Monday, 19th April so you'd better hurry along if you want a tree named after your blog. I mean, isn't it cool that someday someone will look at this gorgeous hunk of a tree and say,

'hey look, there's Anything Goes!'

LOL! Ok maybe I am getting way ahead of myself here but seriously, I really think it's a great idea :D This is just my small contribution to save our earth. And please, don't any of your dare go and carve your names on my tree now you hear?

Terkini Hulu Selangor : PR Relax, BN Tertekan Dengan Mencalonkan Kamalanathan

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 05:59 AM PDT

Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim berkata percaturan Barisan Nasional (BN) untuk meletakkan calon P. Kamalanathan, memberi peluang cerah kepada Pakatan Rakyat (PR) untuk memenangi pilihan raya kecil di Hulu Selangor.

Beliau menyifatkan Kamalanathan sebagai calon yang lemah berbanding dengan Datuk G. Palanivel yang merupakan pilihan utama MIC sebelum ini.

Menurut beliau dengan pemilihan Ketua Penerangan MIC itu, peluang Pakatan Rakyat (PR) amat cerah untuk terus memenangi hati pengundi Hulu Selangor.

"Peluang kita adalah lebih baik sekarang, namun kita masih perlu bekerja keras untuk menyakinkan pengundi Hulu Selangor bahawa Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) dan PR adalah sebuah parti yang layak mewakili mereka di parlimen," kata Khalid yang juga merupakan pengarah kempen pilihan raya berkenaan.

Dalam pada itu, PKR turut meletakkan wakil-wakil terpilih yang bertanggungjawab "mengawal selia" kawasan di bawah parlimen Hulu Selangor termasuklah Kuala Kubu Baru, Hulu Bernam dan Batang Kali.

Menurut Naib Presiden PKR R Sivarasa, PKR memberi tanggungjawab kepada ahli parlimen Kapar S Manikavasagam di Kuala Kubu Baru manakala Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Bukit Melawati M Muthiah dan ADUN Sri Andalas Dr Xavier Jayakumar masing-masing di Hulu Bernam dan Batang Kali.

Sivarasa berkata PKR bertindak sedemikian kerana sedar bahawa parti tersebut sebelum ini menang dengan majoriti yang tipis.

Strategi PR adalah dengan menjalankan kempen rumah ke rumah bagi memperkenalkan calon PKR iaitu Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.


Am I stressed? Am I fearful?

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 05:55 AM PDT

This is real personal. And I just want to voice it out on my blog. And hope that I will feel less stressful over the upcoming exams.

I have been experience more frequent of what I believe to be anxiety attack. So much so till the extent that even when I am merely 20mins later than usual. I feel the anxiety.

For example: I have class at 0830HRS. I live in the northeast, and school is in the west. Traveling time is about 75mins to 90mins, depending on the waiting time of each mode of transport. And for that 8.30am class, I usually leave the house by 6.45am. The LRT is less crowded so is the MRT. But sometimes if that particular morning I have more thing to pack and/or do and only leave the house at 7am – I feel stressed. I keep thinking that I AM LATE OH WHAT THE FCUK! I AM SO SO SO SO LATE!

And soon, before I know it. Nausea kicks in. I really feel like I could vomit anytime. I feel fear. Because I'm traveling alone on train – I don't have access to toilets until I exit the station (also, that is IF I know where are the toilets are). And before I could reach the next station, I feel like I really need to the toilet (diarrhea). Fear of dirtying myself on the train – I control it – I keep telling myself to relax. But the more I try to control myself, the more my legs shiver. And I could feel my heart going real fast and breathing real hard.

This had previously happened to me when I was in my third year during my poly days. It went on for about a year. I went CGH and was diagnosed IBS – Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  Luckily, it got better when school ended and started working. I thought that was it. The end of it. I wouldn't want to go through it again. I feel that it was a mental torture and physically draining for me. Only desk-job fits me because I can't run around Singapore with my current condition. Locations of the respective stations' toilets are at the back of my hand. So are which MRT doors leads to the escalator/lifts at the respective stations. It save me time – to get to the toilet in the shortest time possible.

And I'm afraid. It's back to haunt me again.

I start to think – is it because I am stressed over the exams (panic) or that I am anxious of getting the exams over and done with?

Google is my best friend. My best companion. Let's see the symptoms.

Source: http://www.npadnews.com/anxiety-symptoms.asp

*****************************************************************************

  • Smothering sensations and Shortness of breath (checked)

These sensations are amongst the more distressing anxiety symptoms. Sometimes it feels as if your chest will not expand to accommodate the air your body needs, other times it feels as if someone is pushing a pillow into your face. The one thing to remember should you experience this is that it is only a sensation caused by exaggerated nerve impulses. These symptoms will not and cannot harm you; you will not stop breathing, pass out or suffocate.

  • Racing heart, slow heart beat, palpitations (checked)

Anxiety releases adrenaline into the blood stream making the heart race and feel as if it is missing beats, (palpitations). This is perfectly natural and will not and cannot harm you in any way. Later I will discuss methods you can use to help stop these feelings. A slow heart beat is also a common feature of anxiety, again it does not mean that your heart will stop beating, it may feel odd and alarming but again do not give it any credibility and it will go away.

  • Chest Pain (checked)

Caused by muscle tension, chest pains can make you feel very scared. The initial reaction of anyone with anxiety who gets pains in their chest is that they are dying of a heart attack. This is not true. Heart pain is very different to this pain and very often does not start in the chest. Deep breathing and relaxation exercises are a very effective way of diminishing these unpleasant symptoms. If you can get somebody to massage your upper back, shoulders and chest, it will help to relax tired and achy muscles.

  • Lump in throat & Difficulty swallowing

Globus Hystericus is the correct term for this symptom. It is caused by the muscles in the throat contracting due to anxiety or stress. Sometimes it feels like you cannot swallow anything and trying to makes it worse. This is another example of a symptom, which will improve if you give it no credibility. It is totally harmless and will not cause you to stop breathing, eating or drinking, it is just very unpleasant.

  • Skin losing colour (blanching)

As blood is diverted to the muscles during the 'fight or flight' response, the fine blood vessels in your skin that gives the skin that pink, healthy colour receive reduced blood flow and the skin loses some of its colour. It is not dangerous and will return to normal as the body starts to normalise after an attack. Some people with generalised anxiety can look a little pale most of the time, again this is quite normal and will return to normal.

  • Sweating (checked)

Sweating is a normal bodily reaction and is designed to reduce the body temperature. As the body heats up sweat is released onto it through sweat glands. As the sweat evaporates it takes heat with it, cooling the body. During periods of anxiety the body is preparing itself for either flight or fight and releases sweat to cool the impending exertions. As the anxiety subsides sweat levels return to normal.

  • Shaking or shivering (Visibly or internally)(checked)

We all shake or shiver when we are nervous or cold. Shaking is a normal reaction to fear and/or a drop in body temperature. Shaking occurs when the muscles spasmodically contract creating friction between muscles and other body tissues. This friction creates heat which raises body temperature. During anxiety it is quite normal to experience shaking or shivering. It will pass.

Been complained. By Vanessa

  • Neck & shoulder pain & numbness in face or head (checked)

The blood vessels and nerves, which supply the face and head, originate in the neck and shoulders. Many of these nerves and blood vessels are routed across the head to the face. When the body is under stress these areas of the body are usually the first to become tense. Facial numbness can be very disturbing but is usually nothing to worry about and is usually the result of this tension.

  • Rapid gastric emptying (checked)

This can be a very unpleasant side effect of both anxiety and tranquilliser use. This condition causes the sufferer to feel full very early on in a meal, sometimes making them feel as if they cannot breathe. Then soon after eating they can experience diarrhea and feel as if their whole digestive system is emptying very quickly indeed.

09.30am I had my breakfast. 10am everything is out.
12pm I had my lunch. 1.55pm everything is out.
Today I had my lunch at 2.15pm. By 3pm again, everything will be out. Twice to toilet.

  • Indigestion, heartburn, constipation and diarrhea (checked)

During periods of anxiety the body diverts blood from various parts of the body to the muscle tissues in order to supply them with the oxygen needed by them during the flight or fight response. One of the main areas where blood is used most is around the digestive tract. Blood is sent there to absorb nutrients from the food we eat. As blood is diverted away from the stomach during anxiety, the digestion slows and the muscles around the stomach can become knotted. This can cause indigestion, heartburn and diarrhea or constipation.

  • Sexual Dysfunction

Impotency, or failure to achieve or maintain an erection, effects many men for many reasons, sometimes there is a physical reason for this but more often than not there is a psychological element.

  • Symptoms of urinary tract infection

Medication can have many and some times quite obscure side effects including the symptoms of a urinary tract infections. It is always advisable to get these things checked out by your doctor but even if you do have an infection it can be easily treated. Drinking plenty of water is always advisable to maintain good, general health but even more so when the body is under stress.

  • Skin rashes (checked)

Skin rashes, spots or dryness are all very common symptoms of anxiety and stress. It is quite common to get an eczema like rash around the nose, cheeks and forehead. They are nothing to worry about and usually disappear when you start to feel better.

  • Weakness in arms & tingling in the hands or feet (checked)

The flight or fight response is an intense reaction and causes many systems of the body to react. Circulation, blood oxygen and blood carbon dioxide levels change and muscle tension is altered in preparation for action. All of these bodily changes have a profound effect on bodily sensations, feeling week in the extremities, (arms, hands, legs or feet) is one of these sensations.

Tingling is usually caused by the pooling of blood carbon dioxide in the limbs, shaking the hands, arms, legs and feet can help increase circulation to these areas. These symptoms are not harmful and will return to normal. Light exercise is very helpful in reversing these sensations. THEY DO NOT MEAN YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A STROKE OR ANY OTHER NEUROLOGICAL CONDITION!

  • Electric shock feeling anywhere in the body

The nervous system is a very complex network of electrically charged nerves which are found in every square centimeter of your body, around every organ, muscle and across your skin, the largest organ in the body. Abnormal nerve impulses due to anxiety can cause a vast array of strange sensations; although quite harmless these can be very disturbing.

  • Dry mouth

As fluids are diverted for use in other parts of the body during anxiety, the mouth becomes dry. Sip water or suck sweets to lubricate your mouth. In extreme cases your doctor can prescribe a liquid to do this but it is expensive. It cannot harm you and will go away after the anxiety subsides.

  • Insomnia (checked)

One of the more distressing effects of anxiety, insomnia is the inability to fall asleep or to remain asleep. It is important to regain regular sleep patterns as lack of sleep can lead to disturbing symptoms. Follow this link to The Linden Method cure for insomnia

  • Nightmares

Dreams and nightmares tend to mimic what is going on in our daily lives. If we are relaxed and contented we have pleasant dreams and usually do not remember them. If we are disturbed or confused our dreams are more likely to be too. Nightmares are unpleasant but harmless, the more you master good sleep and practice breathing and relaxation exercises the better your dreams will become.

  • Fears of going mad or losing control

We all have a fear of going mad or losing control but rest assured you are not going mad. Going mad is not a conscious act; those who are suffering from severe mental illness are unaware of their journey into it. You are not going mad. Confused nervous messages to the brain along tired nerves in a tired body do not constitute madness.

Thoughts are an unconscious product of brain activity. If you are anxious, angry, sad or stressed your thoughts are affected, not only by mood, but also by your physical body chemistry. Blood oxygen levels can affect brain activity and the central nervous system, as can many other bodily chemicals like adrenaline, hormones and even vitamins. These un-pleasant thoughts, emotions and totally irrational fears are not harmful to yourself or others. Any thoughts of harming yourself or other people are perceived only. As you body becomes more relaxed and less anxious your thought processes will return to normal.

  • Increased depression & suicidal feelings (perhaps?)

Depression is a word that is commonly misused to describe a variety of conditions. I hear many people in every day life who say, "I am depressed, I feel terrible, I am so fed up". This is, in most cases, not depression. Depression is a series of chemical imbalances that create a clinical illness that has strong links with anxiety disorders and can be a side effect of them. Anxiety has many features of depression and can mimic it quite strongly. When someone goes to the doctor complaining of feeling run down and fed up, it is all too easy to write a prescription for Prozac, Seroxat or another anti-depressant. I wonder how many people are on anti-depressants who just needed to reassess and restructure their lives.

  • Aggression (checked)

When you feel tired, ill, fed up and held back by your condition you are bound to feel angry. One of the main causes of true anger is actually sadness. Think back to a situation that has made you feel anger, if you dissect that event you might find that the true reason for feeling so angry was a feeling of sadness. Aggression is a normal reaction to fear also, the fight or flight response prepares us to either run or fight, sometimes to fight may seem to be the best response.

Ask Nicholas – he's the one getting the most of it.

  • Symptoms like 'flu'

Influenza causes the body to release anti-bodies into the blood stream to attack the virus. This combination of anti-bodies and infection makes the body feel weak, sweaty and painful. Anxiety can have a similar effect, weakening the muscles, making you clammy and achy. Believe it or not the more you do physically the better this will become.

  • Distorted vision

In order to prepare the body for impending danger, adrenaline release causes many physical changes. During the anxiety response the body prepares the eyes to notice any slight movements; it does this by dilating the pupils allowing more light to enter. This is why anxious people become more sensitive to bright light and often wear sunglasses to minimize the eyestrain it causes.

  • Disturbed hearing (checked)

This is called tinitus and is usually experienced as whistling or screeching noises in either or both ears.

  • Hormone problems

Anxiety can affect various systems of the body, one of which is the endocrine system. This system is responsible for balancing the glands, which secrete hormones in the body. Although these glands secrete the hormones needed by the body, they do not control the levels of these chemicals, this is done by the brain. Disturbed messages in the brain and nervous system can cause slight irregularities in the secretion of these chemicals.

When anxiety levels return to normal so will the hormone levels. There are few examples where these hormones cause serious problems and if they do your doctor can correct them.

Women may find that their menstrual cycle is temporarily effected and men may find that they have mood swings whilst testosterone levels are affected.

  • Headaches & feelings of having a tight band around head (checked)

As discussed earlier, tension in the neck and shoulders can cause immense discomfort, migraine and numbness. The feeling of having a tight band around your head is caused by muscular tension in the sheath of muscles covering the skull. Restricted blood vessels and nerves within this tissue can cause very severe symptoms including pain in the eyes, face and teeth.

  • Sore eyes

Reduced lubrication in the eyes when body fluids are diverted elsewhere during anxiety causes the eyes to feel sore, dry and painful.

  • Agoraphobia

Agoraphobia is a natural response to anxiety and self-preservation. If we feel threatened we tend to retreat to somewhere safe, like a tortoise into its shell. In anxiety it is important to gain control of this response as soon as you feel it developing. Avoidance of situations is not an effective tool in the fight against agoraphobia.

  • Hallucinations

Mostly experienced by people in withdrawal, hallucinations can be very frightening indeed if you do not understand what they are and where they come from. Hallucinations are another example of transient symptoms. If you are in withdrawal they will pass, if you are not in withdrawal consult your doctor, as they may be a side effect of the drugs that you have been prescribed.

  • Creeping or pins and needles sensations in the skin

The nerve endings in your skin are alive with electrical impulses, these can feel like creeping sensations, pins and needles or tickling, they are the result of confused nerve impulses and cannot harm you.
Increased sensitivity to light, sound, touch, and smell

All of these sensitivities are to prepare your senses to see, smell, hear and feel more when in impending danger during the fight or flight response. All of these feeling are unusual but not dangerous, they are temporary and will return to normal as your anxiety levels reduce.

  • Hyperactivity (checked)

Hyperactivity is a way of describing a range of symptoms that cause you to feel as if you need to talk faster and do things faster. It can make you feel confused and irrational and can make you do things that you would not usually do. This is a common feature of anxiety and drug withdrawal and will pass in time.

Ask Shelin/Vanessa/Nicholas. Jacqueline's always in a rush.

  • Dramatic increase in sexual feelings (checked)

As the brain copes with disturbed and confused messages from all around the body, some of the mind's thought processes can become a little distorted or exaggerated. Sexual thoughts and emotions are typically very strong even when in good health, they are what drive the attraction mechanism when we meet people we find attractive and create the sexual feelings we feel for some people.

  • Pain in the face or jaw that resembles a toothache (checked)

The term 'face ache' comes from this feature of anxiety. Most of this symptom is caused by tension, not only in the face, neck and shoulders, which can refer pain to the jaw and teeth, but also in the jaw itself.

  • Derealisation and Depersonalisation (checked)

These are both symptoms, which affect the way you experience yourself. Derealisation is the sensation that you and everything around you is not real or dreamy, as if you are seeing everything through a fog or some kind of filter. It has been noticed that people experience both depersonalisation and derealisation during panic. It seems that some people dissociate first which then causes panic and derealisation.

someway in the moment in time. I feel that I am not in reality and that it is a dream. But it is not a dream, but it is happening at this very moment. and sometimes I find myself doing things I wouldn't usually do and I don't know why I did it, how I did it nor what I did that for.



Sudah Sampai Masa Nazri Diheret Ke Mahkamah

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 05:13 AM PDT

Teoh Meng Kee, abang mendiang Teoh Beng Hock hari ini memfailkan notis usul agar Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz dipenjarakan bagi kesalahan menghina mahkamah. Ini berhubung kenyataannya yang mendakwa pakar pathologi dari Thailand, Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand "pembohong".

Notis usul itu difailkan melalui firma guaman Karpal Singh & Co di pejabat pendaftar Mahkamah Majistret di sini pada pukul 11.30 pagi.

Permohonan itu dibuat mengikut Perkara 26 Akta Mahkamah-mahkamah Rendah 1948.

Dalam afidavit yang diikrarkan untuk menyokong permohonan itu, Meng Kee, 34, menyatakan Mohamed Nazri pada 11 April lepas memberi kenyataan di media elektronik berkenaan dengan keterangan Dr Pornthip dalam prosiding inkues kematian adiknya iaitu: "She is a liar! She lied in the inquest."

Mohamed Nazri berkata demikian sebagai mengulas kenyataan pakar pathologi itu sebelum ini bahawa beliau tidak akan hadir memberi keterangan pada inkues yang akan disambung pada 20 April ini kerana menerima 'tekanan politik' daripada sesetengah pihak.

Meng Kee mendakwa Mohamed Nazri telah secara terbuka menuduh pakar pathologi itu menipu berkenaan dengan keterangan yang diberi semasa inkues dan akan dipanggil semula untuk memberi keterangan lanjut, selain daripada menuduh Dr Pornthip menipu selepas bersumpah.

Beliau mendakwa tindakan itu terkandung dalam kesalahan jenayah yang serius kerana ia merupakan 'penghakiman yang dibuat terlebih dahulu' ke atas isu yang akan diputuskan oleh koroner dan bukan oleh mana-mana pihak lain.

Meng Kee mendakwa kenyataan yang dikeluarkan oleh Mohamed Nazri mempunyai 'kecenderungan untuk mencampuri pentadbiran kehakiman', mengakibatkan penghinaan yang serius ke atas mahkamah dan sehubungan itu Mohamed Nazri harus dipenjarakan.

Karpal Singh ketika ditemui pemberita selepas memfailkan notis itu berkata Mahkamah Koroner akan mendengar permohonan untuk penangguhan prosiding inkues pada 20 April ini dan seterusnya mendengar permohonan notis usul itu.

Semalam, kerajaan Selangor melalui peguamnya, Malik Imtiaz Sarwar memfailkan permohonan untuk menangguhkan prosiding inkues yang dijadualkan disambung pada 20 April ini.

Permohonan itu dibuat bagi meminta lebih masa untuk memastikan keselamatan Dr Pornthip terjamin sebelum beliau hadir memberi keterangan pada inkues.

Beng Hock, 30, setiausaha politik kepada Exco kerajaan negeri Selangor, Ean Yong Hian Wah ditemui mati pada 16 Julai tahun lepas di tingkat lima, Plaza Masalam di sini, selepas memberi keterangan di pejabat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia cawangan Selangor yang terletak di bangunan sama.


Tindakan Najib Boleh Keruhkan Hubungan Malaysia-Iran

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 03:42 AM PDT

Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak yang tercemar imejnya kerana dikaitkan dengan pembunuhan model Mongolia Altantuya Shaariibuu dilihat begitu terdesak untuk menagih simpati Presiden Barack Obama sehingga tergamak membelakangkan pendirian negara-negara Islam yang mendahulukan pendekatan dialog dalam isu nuklear Iran.

Tanpa memikirkan pandangan dan sensiviti umat Islam, beliau secara terbuka menyokong kempen sekatan Amerika berhubung isu program nuklear Iran, menjadikan Malaysia negara Islam pertama yang menyokong usaha Washington itu.

Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang ketika dalam perbahasan di Dewan Rakyat hari ini meminta ketegasan kerajaan berhubung isu itu.

"Tetapi apa yang berlaku ialah Iran membuat kenyataan yang terbuka bahawa mereka mahu memajukan nuklear adalah untuk tenaga alternatif daripada penggunaan sumber yang lain, tetapi Iran ditekan habis-habisan dan diberi satu amaran yang keras dan telah dibuat keputusan untuk dibuat tindakan yang tegas.

"Saya harap kerajaan Malaysia mengambil sikap yang sama dengan Turki, sikap yang konsisten tidak 'double standard', yang berani serta tegas untuk memberi hak kepada negara Iran," kata Abdul Hadi.

Sementara itu, Ahli Parlimen Batu, Tian Chua mempertikai sikap kerajaan Malaysia yang seolah-olah tunduk kepada kuasa besar itu.

"Amerika Syarikat menentang pembangunan sektor nuklear oleh Iran, tetapi Malaysia seolah-olah setuju pendirian itu. Ini adalah satu pendirian yang berat sebelah dan sekali lagi kita telah berkompromi dalam pendirian tegas kita menentang kuasa besar dalam menekan negara Islam dan dunia ketiga.

"Amerika Syarikat tidak percaya dan berterusan menekan Iran tanpa menghormati kedaulatan Iran. Melebihi isu keamanan dunia. Seperti alasan 'weapon of mass destruction', kita mempercepatkan undang-undang untuk memuaskan hati Amerika Syarikat. Amerika pernah menggunakan alasan ini untuk mencerobohi Afghanistan dan Iraq.

"Sepatutnya Malaysia tidak menyokong apa-apa tindakan yang bertentangan dengan kedaulatan rakyat Iran. Seolah kita bukan sahaja tunduk tetapi bersubahat dalam perkara ini," tegas Tian.

Beliau diminta mengulas laporan media yang menyatakan Perdana Menteri bersetuju dengan usaha Amerika mengecam Iran berhubung projek tenaga nuklear negara itu.

"Presiden dan Perdana Menteri bersetuju pentingnya Iran akur dengan kewajipannya di bawah rejim pengawalan senjata nuklear antarabangsa," ujar satu kenyataan Rumah Putih.

Usaha Amerika itu dibantah keras oleh kuasa besar seperti China, Russian Amerika Latin dan Turki.

Ahli Majlis Keselamatan Pertubuhan Bangsa-bangsa Bersatu (PBB) Brazil, Turki dan Lebanon dijangka menentang langkah seterusnya ke atas Iran.

Kenyataan itu juga menyatakan Najib bersetuju supaya Iran dihantar satu mesej yang jelas serta menyatakan kerajaan Malaysia bersedia untuk bekerjasama dengan Amerika di Afghanistan melalui latihan polis, ketenteraan dan pengurusan sivil. -Sk


Malaysia Says Suspends Gasoline Supplies To Iran
April 16, 2010

Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak says Malaysia's state-run oil company has suspended gasoline supplies to Iran due to that country's continuing standoff with the international community over its nuclear program.

Najib spoke about the suspension following talks in Washington on April 15 with U.S. President Barack Obama.

The Malaysian leader called on Tehran to comply with decisions of the United Nations Security Council. He said Malaysia believes Iran has the right to peaceful nuclear energy but said Iran must also earn the trust of the international community by being fully transparent on its atomic development.

Iran is one of the world's biggest crude-oil exporters but must reportedly import around 40 percent of its gasoline supplies, such as from the Malaysian state firm Petronas, because of a lack of functioning refineries.

The Malaysian leader spoke as envoys from six world powers held another closed-door meeting in New York on April 15 on a possible fourth round of UN sanctions against Iran for failing to halt nuclear activities that could be diverted toward production of a nuclear weapon.

It was the second straight day of talks on the Iran sanctions issue among ambassadors from the five veto-wielding members of the UN Security Council -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States -- plus Germany.

Malaysia recalled its envoy to the UN's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), after Kuala Lumpur said he disregarded orders by voting against an IAEA resolution to censure Iran for its covert construction of a nuclear enrichment plant.

More US babies born with syphilis, report finds

Malaysian Insider : More US babies born with syphilis, report finds

WASHINGTON, April 16 — More US babies are being born with syphilis, many of them to women in the South who use crack cocaine and work in the sex trade, according to a US government report released yesterday.

The troubling trend reverses a 14-year decline and shows the infection, already on the uptick among gay and bisexual men, is worsening in the heterosexual community, the team at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

If a woman is infected with syphilis while pregnant, her baby can be born dead, deaf, with other nerve damage or bone deformities. Antibiotic treatment at least a month before birth can prevent that.

CDC researchers checked cases of congenital syphilis, a reportable disease, which means doctors must report it to state health departments.

"After declining for 14 years, the congenital syphilis rate among infants aged under one year increased 23 per cent, from 8.2 cases per 100,000 live births in 2005 to 10.1 during 2008," the CDC team reported in the agency's weekly report on death and disease.

"That increase followed a 38 per cent increase in the … syphilis rate among females aged more than 10 years from 2004 to 2007." The biggest increases were in the South and among black women.

"Recent increases in … syphilis among black women in the south have been linked to crack cocaine use and commercial sex work," the report added. Increases "might portend a larger increase in the congenital syphilis rate in 2009 and future years".

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the Treponema pallidum bacteria. It often does not cause symptoms for years and can therefore be transmitted by people who are unaware they are infected.

Primary syphilis is usually heralded by a single sore called a chancre, and if not treated, patients can develop a rash, fever, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms. Late-stage syphilis damages the brain, nerves, eyes, heart and other organs.

Last November, CDC officials said squeamishness about talking about sex had helped keep sexually transmitted infections common in the United States, which has among the highest rates of STDs of any developed country.

The CDC says 13,500 syphilis cases were reported in 2008, an almost 18 per cent increase from 2007, with 63 per cent of them among men who had sex with men. — Reuters



Dutch to raise minimum age for prostitutes to 21

AMSTERDAM, April 16 — The Dutch government said yesterday it plans to raise the legal minimum age for prostitution to 21 from 18 as part of stricter permit rules for brothels and registration requirements for prostitutes.

Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has sent the proposal to Parliament as an addition to legislation which updates the law regulating prostitution and sex businesses. "People at the age of 21 can make a better judgment about working as a prostitute than 18 year olds; also they are better equipped to deal and negotiate with clients," the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.

Prostitution was legalised in the Netherlands in 2000 but authorities have toughened their stance on the business in recent years to fight organised crime and clean up inner city areas.

In 2008, Amsterdam announced plans to halve the number of brothels in its red-light district.

A local union for prostitutes, De Rode Draad, has said raising the minimum age would lead younger girls to underground, illegal brothels. But the ministry said it would prevent that by "fierce control" and penalisation of illegal prostitution and clients.

Under the new law, clients who visit illegal prostitutes can be fined up to 7,600 euros (RM34,000) or risk being imprisoned for up to six months.

Brothel owners who don't have a permit or break the law risk a fine of up to 18,500 euros or can be detained for up to two years. — Reuters

 



Speedy scanner re-writes book on publishing technology

Malaysian Insider : Speedy scanner re-writes book on publishing technology

TOKYO, April 16 — Simply flipping through a book may not seem like the best to way to scan it, but a Japanese research group at Tokyo University has created new software that allows hundreds of pages to be scanned within minutes.

Scanning paper is normally a tedious process with each page having to be inserted into a flat-bed scanner, but the team led by Professor Masatoshi Ishikawa use a high-speed camera that takes 500 pictures a second to scan pages as they are flipped.

Normal scanners can only scan the information that is actually before them on the page. The new scanner being developed is able to deal with the fact that pages that are being flipped are normally deformed in some fashion.

"It takes a shot of the shape, then it calculates the shape and uses those calculations to film the scanning," Ishikawa said, explaining the system used to reconstruct the original page.

"As it can film while understanding the underlying shape, it's very easy to then take the pages that are being scanned and save them as a normal flat copy."

The current system is able to scan an average 200-250 page book in a little over 60 seconds using basic computer hardware that is available off-the-shelf.

While it now requires extra time to process the scanned images, the researchers hope to eventually make the technology both faster and much smaller.

"In the more the distant future, once it becomes possible to put all of this processing on one chip and then put that in a iPad or iPod, one could scan just using that chip. At that point, it becomes possible to scan something quickly to save for later reading," Ishikawa told Reuters.

Being able to scan books with an iPhone may be further off, but Ishikawa says that a commercial version of the large-scale computer based scanning system could be available in two to three years.

While the technology has the potential to take paper books into the digital age, it remains to be how publishers will react to people scanning their books while just flipping through them. — Reuters

Ramai Calon Bebas Tipiskan Peluang BN Rampas Hulu Selangor

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 01:43 AM PDT

Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Parlimen Hulu Selangor bakal meriah apabila tidak kurang dari lima calon bebas turut memeriahkan suasana apabila mengambil keputusan untuk bertanding pada 25 April ini.

Tiga daripada mereka menyatakan rasa tidak puas terhadap pucuk pimpinan MIC yang mereka dakwa telah mengabaikan nasib masyarakat India dan dipinggirkan dari arus pembangunan.

Bekas pengerusi bahagian MIC Hulu Selangor, V S Chandran berkata, "Saya akan bertanding di Hulu Selangor dan telah pun membayar wang deposit sebanyak RM5,000 semalam.

"Saya menetap di Hulu Selangor selama 54 tahun. Saya kenal setiap inci bumi Hulu Selangor," katanya.

Chandran pernah dipecat dari parti tahun lalu ekoran masalah disiplin.

Beliau berkata Presiden MIC Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu dan Timbalannya Datuk G Palanivel adalah pembohong. Selama tempuh empat penggal Palanivel sebagai anggota parlimen kawasan itu kehidupan rakyat bertambah susah. Jumlah rakyat miskin semakin meningkat.

Seorang lagi calon yang turut bertanding, Pengerusi MIC Cawangan Bukit Bintang, T Ananthan yang bersetuju dengan pendapat Chandran berkata, "saya pasti akan bertanding di Hulu Selangor kerana telah hilang keyakinan terhadap pucuk pimpinan MIC.

"Jika saya mendapat lebih dari 1,500 undi maka jelas menunjukkan bahawa masyarakat India tidak menyokong MIC sebagai sebuah parti," ujar beliau.

"Saya yakin calon BN akan ditewaskan oleh wakil Pakatan Rakyat (PR), Datuk Zaid Ibrahim," tambahnya lagi apabila ditanya mengenai calon BN.

Sumber media dipetik berkata Anandhan akan menarik diri dari bertanding pada saat-saat akhir.

Sementara itu, bekas ahi MIC dan Parti Progresif Penduduk (PPP), J Anuratha, akan mengumumkan hari ini sama ada beliau akan bertanding di Hulu Selangor.

"Bapa saya dikenali ramai di Hulu Selangor, dan rajin membantu rakyat,"

"Berdasarkan keyakinan ini, saya yakin dapat sokongan rakyat di Hulu Selangor," katanya.

Selain itu, bekas ketua wanita Parti Keadilan Rakyat Pulau Pinang, Aminah Abdullah, juga mengisytiharkan beliau akan bertanding di Hulu Selangor.

Beliau pernah bertanding di kawasan Dewan Undangan Negeri Penanti, Pulau Pinang tetapi tewas hingga hilang deposit.

Sementara itu, Hindraf juga mengumumkan akan meletakkan calonnya untuk bertanding dalam PRK Hulu Selangor, 25 April ini.

Setiausahanya, V.K.Regu berkata, pemimpin Hindraf telah bertemu dan mengambil keputusan menyertai PRK ini.

Bagaimanapun, katanya nama calon Hindraf akan diumumkan kemudian.

Mereka katanya, sudah menyimpang dari semangat pergerakan itu walaupun pemimpin mereka adalah sebahagian dari Hindraf. -erapakatan


The Land Of Hawau

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 01:10 AM PDT


I used to work in a Zoo. Now I work in a land called Hawau.

This land of Hawau, in a galaxy far far away, is ruled by its leader, The Big Kahuna, who appears to be a venerable and honourable man, that is, until you have stayed at the land of Hawau for 2 or 3 moons, at which point you would discover that he would, without question, lie, cheat and steal from just about anyone, from kings and emperors to paupers and vagabonds.

"I don't need any backing from the Federation!" he declares, while at the same time devising plans and methods to steal stuff from that very same Federation he doesn't need any help from.

"Don't make it look like such a con-job lah..", he once told one of his advisors who was under instruction to make the lies and thefts appear legit.

"We must have integrity!!", he keeps bellowing, almost always before proceeding to lie, cheat and steal on a daily basis.

Ah well, just lie, cheat and steal with integrity then.

It's like watching Survivor All Stars.

The Big Kahuna rules Hawau with an iron fist. He sits on his chieftain throne receiving reports from his minions, all of which are his loyal subjects whose vocabulary consists of the words, "Yes, Sir!" and "Okay, Sir" and various other versions of that same affirmation, bending over included. Nobody says no in this land, for The Big Kahuna will dismiss all nos with just a swat of his big black hairy back hand.

Citizens come and go. Nobody stays for long, unless of course, if they are willing to sacrifice their entire life for The Big Kahuna and stay up all night to attend to his needs, for The Big Kahuna is a nocturnal creature who sleeps at dawn till noon and then yaps at all hours till the sun goes to sleep and rises again. Those who stay without complaints, nod when he yaps, and run when he asks are the ones hugely rewarded. Never mind that they are neither good, nor smart, nor pretty for that matter. That they do his bidding without questioning why, never balking, never faltering, showing only blind devotion are good enough reasons to elevate them as trusted aides,… minions, I mean.

Super, he thinks he is. Indeed, that is The Big Kahuna's very word to describe himself. So super that when he yaps, the world must stop. So super, that a mere servant running his errands must also religiously listen to his sermons on budget deficits and world-domination. So super, that the land, as well the world, revolves only around him.

He is like a hamster on a wheel, except that the hamster is cute.

The Big Kahuna bugs me.

His minions bug me.

This whole Land of Hawau bugs me.

I am not putting my integrity on the line anymore.

So I am packing my backpack onto my mule and move to a nearby land. Hope the grass is greener there.




Kepada commentator Warga Batang Kali..

Posted: 16 Apr 2010 12:45 AM PDT

Saya telah membaca komen2 yang berbau sindiran yang kuat dan busuk dari commentator Warga Batang Kali diblog Sakmongkol AK47 ( A Tale Of 2 Cities)..oleh kerana blog saya pun diheret sama terpaksalah jawab jugak..walaupun saya bukanlah anak jantan.

Saya memang terkejut jugak mendapati kontraktor kelas F mampu pakai Vios, isteri pakai Honda Civic dan semua anak2nya pakai Kelisa di IPTA. Kitaorang tak mampu tu semua.

Encik, anak saya (Manchester law grad) yang kerja sebagai pegawai eksekutif di Bank Negara pun pakai Kelisa,..dah 4 tahun..tak mampu nak tukar kereta lain.
Mana yang belajar kat kolej pun sekarang takde kereta..pandai2lah pergi balik kolej.

Anak yang baru kawin tu pun belum beli sebijik kereta pun..tunggu dulu..tahulah banyak jugak belanja hala ke lain. Mujur isterinya ada kereta..

Untuk makluman encik, kami baru trade in kereta X-trail lama kami dengan Honda CRV bulan puasa yang lalu..setelah 5 tahun lebih pakai lasak masa Dato' ( harap janganlah menyindir pada saya bila saya gunakan perkataan Dato'), terpaksalah kami tukar..selalu rosak..terlalu banyak sangat meredah waktu jadi aktif UMNO member dulu.

Satu lagi kereta Frontier yang manual dan lasak digunakan macam kereta pasar malam untuk mengangkut berbagai2 barang untuk orang kampung jugak membantu orang2 miskin di kawasannya.
Ramai orang2 miskin ditolong oleh Dato'..memang tanggung jawabnya masa tu.
Sekarang sudah digunakan oleh adik saya..adik saya sambung bayar.

Encik..yea..saya pakai Mercs yang terburuk (1982) dalam bandar Kuantan..hari2 kena spray dalam kereta sebab banyak sarang semut..semut2 ni takde kerja lain..asyik berpindah sana sini dalam kereta antik ini..dashboard dah retak.
Kalau hujan, bocor..basah kaki saya yang sebelah kanan..air menitik2 masuk.

Dato' beli kereta lama ni 2 tahun lalu pada harga 6 ribu..banyaknya yang rosak tetapi janji boleh pakai, kami tetap bersyukur..

Yang hanya saya tak tahan ialah airconnya tak kuat pada tengahari dan temperature cepat naik bila menunggu kat trafik light.
Dah cuba betulkan berkali2 tapi masih macam tu jugak.
Takkan tak baca pasal entry Mr B saya?

Anak saya sorang jer pergi ke KYUEM..tak cukup pandai nak mintak scholarship macam anak Encik. Jadi selain dari duit apa yang ada, tak cukup kami pinjam dari kawan2.

Kalau encik rasa bila baca blog saya, saya seolah2 bangga sangat gunakan title Datin saya dan ...bila pulak saya memuji2 suami tersayang yea..takkan saya bercerita pun tak boleh?...tolonglah jangan baca blog saya lagi dan mengejek2 saya yea..saya tak kenal encik dan tak pernah mintak tolong sebijik nasi dari encik.

Saya paham encik sayangkan UMNO..encik telah berjaya mencari rezki yang banyak kerana kerajaan memang banyak memperuntukkan kontrak2 untuk kelas F..
Saya terserempak dengan ramai kontraktor kelas F yang kaya-raya di Kuantan dan di Pekan..saya tak jealous, sebab dah rezki masing2.
Suami saya yang mantan YB ni pun rasanya tak kaya macam encik dan kontraktor kelas F yang sedang kayanya..
Dato' melepek sokmo dan budget sentiasa ketat.

Tolonglah..jangan pulak nak menyindir encik sorang sayangkan UMNO..kami suami-isteri dah masuk gelanggang mempertahankan UMNO dengan macam2 cara.. ramai orang lain yang tak tolong senang2 dapat projek ..
Bagi kami, rezki belum lagi..InsyaAllah lain masa kot.
Tak dapat, belum dapat, akan dapat..semuanya kuasa Allah SWT.

Bila nak komen tu, jangan pakai lastik jer yea..
Terima kasih..kalau menyampah kat blog saya, tolonglah, jangan singgah2 lagi.

Bercerita tentang pelajar lelaki Melayu miskin di Sekolah Menengah Taman Tun tu, saya rasa memadailah kami memberitahu dimana dia belajar..sesiapa yang nak membantu, please go and find out from the school..bila adik saya memberitahu cerita ini, kami tidak menyuruh/memaksa sesiapa menderma..sekiranya ada niat sedemikian, Alhamdullillah..pergilah cari pelajar itu.

Sekian..terima kasih..harap jangan pedulikan blog saya lagi kalau rasa saya ni bangga sangat dengan gelaran Datin.
Saya memang bersyukur di anugerah gelaran ini..nak hidung tinggi mana ada?
Hidung saya pun okay dah mancung..

Tidak Hairan Najib Dipertemukan Dengan Obama, Najib Diperkudakan Untuk Sekat Ekonomi Iran

Posted: 15 Apr 2010 11:29 PM PDT

Malaysia secara rasmi menghentikan pembekalan minyak kepada Iran, sejajar dengan rancangan Amerika Syarikat mengenakan sekatan keatas republik Islam itu.

Agensi berita AFP melaporkan Najib membuat pengumuman itu semalam.
Pengumuman itu dibuat selepas Petronas mengesahkan penjualan gasolin kepada Iran dihentikan antara 4 dan 5 Mac lalu.

Najib bertemu Presiden Barack Obama semasa menghadiri Persidangan Kemuncak Keselamatan Nucklear di Washington dan melahirkan sokongan tidak berbelah-bahagi kepada tekanan keatas Iran.

Rumah Putih melaporkan Najib tidak mahu Iran menggunakan teknologi nuklear untuk mempertahankan diri dan Tehran harus membenarkan prasarana nuklear negara itu disiasat.



Najib confirms turned off fuel supplies to Iran

WASHINGTON, April 16 — Malaysia has officially ceased fuel supplies to Iran, on the back of looming US sanctions on the Islamic republic over its continued pursuit of a nuclear development programme, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced yesterday.

"It's going to be quite inevitable that additional sanctions will be imposed in the near future unless there is some movement in the right direction by Iran," Najib was quoted in an AFP report today.

This comes after confirmation yesterday from state oil firm, Petronas, that it had stopped the sale of gasoline to Iran since the middle of March.

According to Najib, the decision was reached after discussions between his administration and the state-owned Petronas.

Najib had also met US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the recent Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, where the prime minister expressed support for Obama over the need send a strong message to the Iran.

"The two leaders also agreed on the need for the international community to send a clear signal to Iran that while it has the right to develop peaceful uses of nuclear energy, Iran should not use this right to develop nuclear weapons capability," the White House said in a statement on Monday.

The prime minister said although Malaysia supported Iran's right to pursue the development of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, the republic was obliged to meet a UN Security Council order directing it to halt uranium enrichment until the purpose of such activities could be independently verified by the IAEA.

"They (Iran) must earn the trust of the international community and the only way they can earn the trust is to be fully transparent in whatever they do and allow full verification by the IAEA and there are some serious doubt as to whether this has been carried out or has been complied with by Iran," he continued in the AFP report.

Petronas last shipped a gasoline cargo into the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas between March 4 and 5, industry sources said.
