A case of condom jacking

A case of condom jacking

A case of condom jacking

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 10:59 AM PST

It seems that the Malaysian Police are investigating the disappearance of a consignment of 726,000 condoms while on transit between a factory in Perak and it's ultimate destination in Japan.

According to a news report, Sagami Rubber Industries said last week that the shipment was loaded into a container at its Perak factory but that it was empty with the locks replaced when it arrived in Tokyo. "We are unhappy. This is the first time such a thing has happened since our Malaysian production started in 1997," the factory manager said. Sagami's head office has said that the condoms are worth RM4.5 million at Japanese retail prices.

Already, wise cracks are being made about this incident. "The police will never solve this case: the villains have protection. They may even be hardened criminals." "This story gives a whole new meaning to 'taking precautions'." "Stringent controls should be enforced to prevent similar leakages from occuring." "I think they need to stiffen the penalty."

But where can the condoms actually go to? Perhaps, these few clues can help the condom police:

I hear that 12,500 pieces went into the making of this evening gown. No wonder I couldn't see any more purple ones in the pictures below.
The white ones are definitely gone now...
Don't worry, at least they are not totally red or totally yellow. Just half of each, which means the leftover of the reds and yellow went here:
All I can say is "gosh." I'm lost for any more words...

Hundreds die in Egypt

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 09:40 AM PST

I am saddened by the latest development in Egypt. Latest news is that, hundreds of protesters have been killed and wounded in the southern city of Kharga as the nationwide revolution in the crisis-hit country enters its 16th consecutive day.

Egyptian security forces targeted the anti-government protesters with live bullets on Wednesday, killing three protesters and wounding hundreds of others, according to e-mails I received from journalist Mahmood Joubiyeh.

Cairo's Liberation Square remained flooded with demonstrators who call on embattled Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down. The independent organisation Human Rights Watch has so far put the death toll at almost 300, after visiting just nine hospitals in the country.

As Egyptians are out on the streets for the 16th straight day, newly appointed Vice President Omar Suleiman says the government cannot tolerate the protests for long.

Suleiman made the remark as over 50,000 protesters on Tuesday blocked newly-appointed Premier Ahmed Shafiq from entering his office in the Egyptian capital, calling for his immediate resignation and those of all the others in the cabinet.

Huge crowds on Tuesday also marched to the Interior Ministry and the Parliament building in the capital despite the government's promises of constitutional reform and an increase in wages for public sector workers.

Suleiman has also announced that the government has a plan and a timetable for a peaceful transfer of power.

Egypt's second largest city, Alexandria, was also the scene of popular rallies against the regime. Many protesters are angry at the US stance toward the ongoing uprising in their country. Thousands of Egyptian workers have gone on strike in the cities of Suez and Ismailia.

How lucky Malaysians are as compared to our brothers in a few countries. There is no war here but there are people who try to incite one...

Ludricrousness Personified!

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 08:48 AM PST

Let me set the record straight. I have been a Christian since 1973 but have never encountered any thing which has been referred to as a Christian vice. What in the blazes am I talking about? Read THIS POST and you might get my drift.

A Christian is one who has gone through the sinner's prayer and accepted Jesus as his/her Lord and Savior. Being born in a Christian family does not make one a Christian. It is a personal experience that the convert goes through. I am not trying to convert anyone to Christianity but am trying to clarify certain terms.

What then is a vice? According to, it is a noun which can mean:

1. an immoral or evil habit or practice.
2. immoral conduct; depraved or degrading behavior: a life of vice.
3. sexual immorality, especially prostitution.
4. a particular form of depravity.
5. a fault, defect, or shortcoming: a minor vice in his literary style.
6. a physical defect, flaw, or infirmity: a constitutional vice.
7. a bad habit, as in a horse.
8. ( initial capital letter ) a character in the English morality plays, a personification of general vice or of a particular vice, serving as the buffoon.

There is no such thing as Christian vices. The Bible teaches Christians to stay away from all that is mentioned above and more. However, no one is perfect and there could still be Christians who commit sins. Even Paul the Apostle himself has talked about the constant struggle between doing what he knows is right and doing what he wants to do.

In the FMT article HERE, Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) president Thomas Philips said no religion should be belittled due to a lack of understanding.

"We should not belittle any religion just because we don't understand it. Her comments were not in context as she wrongly understood that Valentine's Day was a Christian festival," he said.

Ignorance is no excuse for any insensitive statement. Religious leaders must be exemplary leaders that followers can look up to them as role models and follow prescribed patterns of behavior.

There have been many incidents when those from other religions went astray and as far as I know, no Christian leader has stepped forward to judge or to condemn them.

John 8:7 (NKJV) So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

No one has any right to condemn another person. Honestly. I am not a fanatical Christian and those of you who have been reading my blog would be aware of my level of tolerance. This is the first and (I hope) the last time I am writing to defend my religion.

It is alarming that the program where the statements were uttered was aired on a nationwide scale. I am deeply concerned as to the impact on how non-Christians view Christians. Religious fervor, unrestrained sans sensitivity and mutual respect, can be destructive.

Interestingly, it is only in the last ten years that Muslims in other parts of the world have been objecting to Valentine's Day. CLICK HERE to see the trend. For the 50 years that I have lived in Malaysia, this is the FIRST time that statements such as those uttered and even the correlation of Valentine's Day with Christianity - a fallacious one indeed - has been made. Why the sudden morality crusade when in other cases of immorality, some have their lips zipped? Will anything be done to remedy/diffuse the situation?

For the record, the bible does not teach or promote Valentine's Day. Even Christmas is not inherently a Christian practice.

Please note the following points which I have summarized from Wikipedia HERE:

1. Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.

2.The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD.

3. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted.

4. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").

5. The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

6. Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Now if those who are against Valentine's Day had done their homework and research to bulldoze their sheer ignorance, they would not have made a fool of themselves with ludicrous statements. With the click of the mouse, such information can be accessed easily! The history and background of Valentine's Day can be accessed HERE.

Jakim has the right to do what they deem is right in their religion. as reported HERE. Checking out for 'sinful activities at favourite lovers' spots around the country' should be carried out everyday, not just on Valentine's Day. Their attempt to promote a sin-free lifestyle should be lauded but I do not know why only university students have been targeted. If they intend to promote godly behavior etc etc, why not reach out to a broad cross-section of the population?

It is saddening to know that monetary resources, manpower, time and attention has been diverted to Valentine's Day when the issue is immorality and not the festival per se.

Surely there are better things to do, more pressing issues to address, more serious problems to overcome such as corruption, injustice, discrimination and many other issues?

So what will it be next? A decree that it is wrong to celebrate Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day, Teachers' Day etc etc according to their whims and fancies?

Once again, who or what is important? What is the meaning of 1Malaysia? Are we not expected to demonstrate religious tolerance, mutual respect and all that talk about unity in diversity, harmony and all that jazz?

Valentine's Day Objections

Pecah Kontrak: Mahkamah Tolak Permohonan Rozali Gantung Bayaran RM35 Juta

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 08:52 AM PST

Mahkamah Tinggi di sini menolak permohonan pengasas Puncak Niaga (M) Sdn Bhd Tan Sri Rozali Ismail dan dua yang lain untuk menggantung pelaksanaan pembayaran sejumlah RM35 juta terhadap seorang penasihat korporat berhubung ganti rugi pecah kontrak yang membabitkan satu projek berkaitan air, tujuh tahun lepas.

Keputusan itu dibuat oleh Pesuruhjaya Kehakiman Rosilah Yop selepas mengadakan pertemuan dengan Datuk N. Vijay Kumar yang mewakili plaintif dan Tan Sri Datuk Cecil Abraham yang mewakili pihak defendan di dalam kamarnya hari ini.

Pada 8 Dis 2010, Rosilah memerintahkan Rozali dan dua yang lain membayar ganti rugi pecah kontrak sejumlah RM35 juta itu.

Dalam writ saman yang difailkan pada 26 Sept 2005, Lim Pang Cheong @ George Lim selaku plaintif telah mengemukakan tuntutan itu terhadap Rozali, 54, yang juga pengerusi eksekutif syarikat WWE Holdings Berhad, selaku defendan pertama.

Dua yang lain adalah Mat Hairi Ismail, 49, yang juga adik kepada Rozali berjawatan pengarah urusan dan pemegang saham syarikat berkenaan dan WWE Holdings Berhad, selaku defendan ketiga

Dalam tuntutannya itu, Lim mendakwa antara hujung bulan Februari atau Mac 2004, defendan pertama meminta plaintif untuk memperolehi suatu projek yang dikenali sebagai "Jelutong Sewage Treatment Plant and Central Sludge Facility" bagi ketiga-tiga defendan dan plaintif akan diberi upah sekiranya projek itu berjaya diperolehi.

Pada 14 Okt 2004, defendan ketiga telah mengumumkan kepada Bursa Malaysia bahawa syarikat itu telah berjaya memperolehi projek berkenaan dari Kerajaan Malaysia pada 23 Sept 2004 dan jumlah kontrak adalah RM468.3 juta.

Selaras dengan perjanjian itu, Lim mendakwa beliau berhak untuk diberi upah sebanyak RM23.4 juta. Bagaimanapun, beliau mendakwa pembayaran upah kepadanya ditunda dengan alasan penundaan bayaran dari kerajaan Malaysia terhadap projek itu dan juga defendan ketiga menghadapi masalah kewangan.

Berdasarkan tuntutannya itu, Lim memohon ganti rugi untuk pecah kontrak sejumlah RM23.4 juta, atau mana-mana jumlah yang difikirkan sesuai oleh mahkamah, faedah, kos dan relif-relif lain yang dianggap sesuai.

Ketiga-tiga defendan, dalam pembelaannya, mendakwa mereka tidak pernah membuat perjanjian mengenai projek itu dengan Lim. -Bernama

Intel invests another $2.7 billion in Israel

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 06:53 AM PST

From Israel21c:
In an unstable business environment, where US companies are scaling back and weathering bad times, Intel has made a surprising business move. The chipmaker announced in January that it will invest $2.7 billion in its Israeli plant in southern Israel, which will produce next-generation 22-nanometer chips.

It is expected that 22-nanometer technology will make our computers faster, smaller and lighter.

Not willing to elaborate on what exactly this will mean for our everyday lives, Intel Israel's spokesman Koby Bahar tells ISRAEL21c that "it will be the most advanced technology" available.

"Intel decided to invest here because it's worthwhile," he says. "Because we have a good record for Israel and Intel."

Currently, Intel produces processors that run more than 80 percent of the world's personal computers. If you own a PC, chances are a part of it was produced in or developed in Israel.
We have yet to see would-be boycotters of Israel giving up their computers. Hat tip:Elder of Ziyon

Terrorists set their sights on Cairo by Amir Taheri

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 06:36 AM PST

With the Egyptian uprising entering its second week, secularist and Islamist parties are struggling to control it. So far, the largely spontaneous movement has failed to create a leadership -- either to fight the regime in the streets or to start negotiating transition terms.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest Islamist group, joined the uprising five days after its start. The main faction, led by "Supreme Guide" Muhammad Badi'e, hopes to use the uprising to obtain major concessions from the regime. Yesterday, it announced that it had held talks with Vice President Omar Suleiman but found the reforms the government proposed "insufficient."

The Brotherhood also declared it wouldn't contest the presidential election in September. It believes that the election of a Brotherhood candidate as president would isolate Egypt internationally and mean the loss of the $2 billion in aid that America sends Egypt each year.

The Brotherhood's strategy -- to contest the parliamentary elections and, if possible, win control of the parliament and the government -- is called "the Turkish scenario," after the success of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Turkey. By shunning Islamist slogans and offering a "democratic" and "European" agenda, the AKP seduced 41 percent of the Turkish voters to win control of the government.

The Brotherhood, which belongs to the same ideological family as the AKP, hopes that once it has won control of the government it can use the tactic of infiadh ("permeation") to fill the administration with "good Muslims" while purging it of secular elements. But the Brotherhood isn't the only Islamist outfit in Egypt that is trying to reap what it has not sown.

Two other, more extremist, groups have also entered the race. The first is the Gamaa al-Islamiyah (Islamic Society), which has ordered its militants to infiltrate the demonstrations to try to push them toward violence. Last Friday, Gamaa called for invading the presidential palace in Cairo in the hope of forcing the army to react, thus producing a bloodbath. Only a few dozen people took part in the abortive attempt.

The second is Islamic Jihad, which released an ominous statement threatening "attacks on sensitive targets" to avenge "the martyrs." The statement, issued by Tharwat Salah Shehata, an Islamic Jihad leader in exile in Tehran, reads: "We, in the Islamic Jihad, in solidarity with our Muslim brothers in Egypt, humbly pray to Allah Almighty to accept their dead as martyrs and heal their wounds. We wish we could be in the forefront of their ranks and share in their honor."

Hours after Islamic Jihad issued its statement, on Friday Iran's "Supreme Guide" Ali Khamenei appeared at a mass prayer rally to describe the Egyptian uprising, as well as Tunisia's "Jasmine Revolution," as "part of our global Islamic movement."

Khamenei insisted that this Islamist revolution targeted America and that regime change in Cairo would be "a bitter defeat for Washington." This was the first time in years that Khamenei appeared publicly at the weekly prayers. His presence was part of an attempt by the Khomeinist leadership to claim that Islam, not democracy, was the Middle East's rising trend. Dozens of Islamic Jihad exiles in Iran were present at the ceremony, cheering Khamenei with cries of "There is No God but Allah!"

The Egyptian Brotherhood's supreme guide promptly rejected Khamenei's claim. "This is not an Islamic uprising," Badi'e said in a statement. "This is a popular uprising that belongs to all Egyptians." Fears that Islamic Jihad, backed by Tehran, might attack "sensitive targets" has led to increased security throughout Egypt. The first terrorist attack on a "sensitive target" came hours after Khamenei's speech, when the pipeline that supplies Egyptian natural gas to Israel via the Sinai desert was sabotaged in two locations. There was little damage, and the pipeline was back in operation on Saturday.

Injecting a dose of terrorism into what has been a largely peaceful movement might give the Egyptian regime an excuse to revert to what it knows best: massive repression. Especially vulnerable to terrorist attacks are the Suez Canal and, alongside it, the Sumed oil pipeline, through which more than 3 million barrels of crude oil reaches world markets each day.

The canal itself has been put under army protection. However, some of the hundreds of small boats that ply the waterway represent a clear risk. Egypt's democracy movement is caught between the threat of violence and the promise of a negotiated transition. Source: New York Post

Polis Yang Bunuh Along Spoon Tetap Dihukum Gantung

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 07:02 AM PST

Seorang bekas anggota polis ke tali gantung selepas Mahkamah Persekutuan menolak permohonan untuk menyemak keputusan terdahulunya yang mengekalkan sabitan dan hukuman mati Lans Koperal Lans Koperal Mohamed Ya'cob Demyati kerana kesalahan membunuh, Bernama dipetik.

Ia adalah ulangan rayuan selepas gagal dalam rayuan terakhirnya di Mahkamah Persekutuan bagi mengetepikan sabitan dan hukuman mati kerana membunuh penyanyi kumpulan Spoon 11 tahun lalu.

6 Januari 2000 – Polis kemudian menjumpai rangka manusia dipercayai milik Along yang diikat dalam guni di lereng bukit di di Kilometer 28, Jalan Kuala Klawang-Genting Peras, Jelebu.

7 Januari 2000 - Seorang anggota polis berpangkat Lans Koperal ditahan kerana disyaki terbabit dalam pembunuhan Along.

19 Januari 2000 – Anggota polis dari cawangan pengawal pengiring Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen (IPK) Kuala Lumpur, Mohamed Ya'cob, dihadapkan ke Mahkamah Majistret Seremban atas tuduhan membunuh Along.

10 April 2002 – Mahkamah Tinggi Seremban menjatuhi hukuman mati selepas mendapati Mohamed Ya'cob bersalah terhadap tuduhan membunuh Along.

Tangkap Segera Penerbit Dan Pengedar My Balik Pulau!

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 05:25 AM PST

Desak haram risalah

GEORGETOWN - Gabungan Bela Hak Insan (Gabungan) mendesak Kerajaan Negeri mengharamkan edaran risalah My Balik Pulau selain mengambil tindakan tegas terhadap penerbitnya, Arts-ED.

Gabungan dianggotai empat badan bukan kerajaan (NGO), Persatuan Anak Jati Melayu Pulau Pinang (Pajim), Badan Anti Islam Liberal (Badai), Islamic Provocation International Society (IPIS) dan Sekretariat Dakwah Pulau Pinang.

Presiden Gabungan, Mohamed Nordin Mohd Nor berkata, pihaknya mendapati penerbitan risalah itu mengandungi unsur pemalsuan fakta sejarah Pulau Pinang dan menghina orang Melayu asal negeri itu.

"Kami berasakan penerbitan My Balik Pulau ini amat berbahaya dan mempunyai motif politik serta perkauman yang tidak sihat. Secara keseluruhan, penerbitan ini dengan sengaja hendak meluputkan sejarah awal orang Melayu di pulau ini dan ia tidak boleh dimaafkan.

"Kandungan risalah ini juga dilihat boleh mengelirukan golongan muda khususnya pelajar," katanya semalam.

Sehubungan itu, mereka mendesak Kerajaan Negeri mengharamkan edaran penerbitan ini dan mengambil tindakan tegas kerana ditaja oleh 'Penang Education Council (PEC)', jelas menunjukkan ia bawah Kerajaan Negeri kerana logonya turut tertera pada belakang risalah.

Risalah My Balik Pulau mengandungi 12 muka surat dan diterbitkan oleh Arts-ED, sebuah Persatuan Pendidikan Seni Pulau Pinang yang ditaja Penang Education Council (PEC) dan Pejabat Kementerian Pelancongan Malaysia Pulau Pinang serta dibantu oleh beberapa individu dan organisasi lain.

Ulasan GB

Penerbit dan pengedar risalah MY BALIK PULAU sepatutnya ditahan dan ditangkap kerana ia menyemarakkan unsur perkauman.

Tetapi malang di dalam negara kita, dimana polis bersokongkol dngan pemerintah yang memainkan isu perkauman membiarkan hal tersebut berlaku.

Jika kesalah di pihak Pakatan rakyat misalnya di dalam kes ADUN SRI MUDA, pihak polis begitu tangkas mendakwa sekalipun polis tidak mempunyai hujjah yang kukoh untuk menuduh ADUN berkenaan mengeluarkan kata-kata yang mencemar dan menghina Sultan Selangor, sekalipun pejabat ADUN berkenaan digelidah dan komputer dirampas.

Ketidak-adilan polis di dalam menjaga ketenteraman awam akan terus menjadi perhatian rakyat.

Bapa Tidak Mengaku Bunuh Anaknya

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 04:31 AM PST

Seorang bekas pengawal keselamatan mengaku tidak bersalah di Mahkamah Tinggi di sini atas pertuduhan membunuh anaknya yang berusia tiga tahun dengan cara menyembelih menggunakan pisau pada 24 Ogos tahun lalu.

Muhaimi Sautar, 34, memohon untuk dibicarakan selepas pertuduhan dibacakan kepadanya di hadapan Hakim Datuk Tuan Azman Abdullah.

Tuan Azman kemudiannya menetapkan 9 Mac ini untuk sebutan semula kes itu bagi membolehkan tertuduh mendapatkan peguambela.

Pada 2 September lepas, Mahkamah Majistret di sini memerintahkan supaya tertuduh dihantar ke hospital psikiatri untuk menjalani pemeriksaan kesihatan mental, dan dia dihantar ke Hospital Bahagia di Tampoi, Johor.

Muhaimi didakwa membunuh anaknya Muhammad Adam Muzhaffar antara pukul 11.45 pagi hingga 12 tengah hari di rumahnya di No 133, Jalan Atas Paloh, Kampung Sungai Budor di sini.

Dia didakwa mengikut Seksyen 302 Kanun Keseksaan yang sabit kesalahan boleh membawa hukuman gantung sampai mati.

Pendakwaan dijalankan oleh Timbalan Pendakwa Raya, Mohd Rehan Mohd Aris. - BERNAMA

Sekali Lagi Perarakan Maulidir-Rasul Pulau Pinang Hendak Disabotaj

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 03:23 AM PST

Perarakan Maulidur Rasul kena sabotaj lagi?

GEORGETOWN - Jabatan Penerangan Pulau Pinang didakwa enggan memberi kerjasama kepada Kerajaan Negeri sempena perarakan Maulidur Rasul peringkat negeri 15 Februari ini.

Exco Hal Ehwal Agama, Abdul Malik Abul Kassim berkata, pihaknya tidak menerima respons daripada jabatan itu setelah memohon mendapatkan kenderaan bagi alunan selawat mengiringi perarakan.

"Menerusi jawapan secara lisan dalam mesyuarat, saya dimaklumkan oleh jabatan itu bahawa kemudahan kenderaan tidak boleh dibekalkan kepada Kerajaan Negeri mengikut polisinya.

"Walau apa pun, saya masih menunggu jawapan secara bertulis daripada Jabatan Penerangan untuk mengetahui status permohonan," katanya kepada media di sini, semalam.

Abdul Malik berkata, tahun lalu Kerajaan Negeri menghadapi masalah yang sama apabila Jabatan Penerangan memberi alasan kenderaannya sudah dijadualkan lebih awal untuk aktiviti penerangan mengenai dasar Kerajaan Pusat.

"Tahun ini mereka memberi alasan kenderaan tidak boleh dibekalkan sebab ia tidak terkandung dalam polisi mereka. Padahal, Kerajaan Negeri bawah tampuk kepimpinan Barisan Nasional mendapat kemudahan itu.

"Ketika pemerintahan BN, Jabatan Penerangan bukan sahaja mengambil bahagian dalam perarakan Maulidur Rasul malah menyediakan sekurang-kurangnya lima kenderaan bagi alunan selawat mengiringi perarakan," katanya.

Dalam perkembangan sama, beliau berkata sambutan Maulidur Rasul peringkat negeri tahun ini akan bermula 12 Februari bertemakan 'Wasatiyyah Tonggak Kecemerlangan Ummah', tema sama digunakan untuk Maal Hijrah yang membawa maksud 'Kesederhanaan dalam Islam'.

Lessons from Tunisia and Egypt for ASEANS

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 01:33 AM PST

Extracts from the Star:Lessons from Liberation Square. Along The Watchtower. By M. Veera Pandiyan

  1. The protests in Egypt and elsewhere in the Arab world are a wake-up call for governments_
    • to look at themselves,
    • identify weaknesses
    • and check excesses.
  2. The new age of dissent and unrest taking place where people are demanding_
    • political rights
    • and genuine democracy.
  3. Are they going to provide_
    • better governance,
    • greater transparency
    • and accountability
      • or still indulging in political shenanigans
      • and condoning corruption
      • or abuses of power?
  4. Are their policies_
    • tuned to garner political support
    • or geared to meet the needs of the country in an ever-changing, highly competitive world?
  5. Can their young people get decent jobs when they leave school or university ?
  6. Under President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year autocratic rule, in Egypt_
    • about 40% live around the internationally-accepted poverty line of US$2 (RM6) a day.
    • corruption remained rampant,
    • making the well-connected extremely rich.
      • Mubarak kept the country a virtual police state under emergency laws,
      • giving the government sweeping powers of arrest and detention.
      • Arbitrary arrests,
      • abuses by police,
      • and even torture of political dissidents were common.
    •  Egyptians bore the brunt of higher food and fuel prices.
    • The poor got poorer and hungrier.
    • As the anger and resentment grew, Mubarak's government failed to_
      •  either connect with the rapidly growing socially-networked urban working class
      • or provide jobs to the large numbers of university graduates being churned out.
  7. The Gini Coefficient (or Gini index) is the core means by which economists measure income inequality, using the comparative ratio between the share of income levels and the cumulative share of income earned by a percentage of the population.
  8. Under the index, invented by Italian statistician Corrado Gini, lower scores denote better equality. So the higher a country scores on the Gini index, the more unequal its society's distribution of income.
  9. The latest figures show Sweden has the lowest Gini coefficient at 23, Namibia the highest at 70.7, while Egypt's is 34.4, which is comparatively better than that of many Asean countries, including Malaysia and Singapore.
  10. Our index is at 46.1, Thailand's at 43, the Philippines' at 45.8, Laos' at 34, Vietnam's at 34.6, Cambodia's at 43, Indonesia's at 39.4 and Singapore's at 48.1. There is no figure for Myanmar.
  11. The country's majority Muslims and minority Coptic Christians came together as Egyptians first, just as they did during the protests against British colonial rule in 1919.

Hakim Mohd Zairan Aman menetapkan 14 Mac ini untuk sebut semula kes dan membenarkan Hasbie diikat jamin sebanyak RM60,000 dengan dua orang penjamin.

Hasbie, 38, dituduh melakukan kesalahan itu di sebuah pangsapuri di Teluk Air Tawar, pada 11 Feb tahun lepas. Pertuduhan adalah mengikut Seksyen 4 (1) Akta Pencegahan Pengubahan Wang Haram dan Pencegahan Pembiayaan Keganasan 2001 yang memperuntukkan hukuman penjara sehingga lima tahun atau denda sehingga RM5 juta atau kedua-duanya sekali.

Terdahulu Timbalan Pendakwa Raya daripada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia, Anslen Charles Fernandis, memohon agar mahkamah menetapkan wang jaminan sebanyak RM100,000 kerana kesalahan yang dilakukan sangat serius dan jumlah yang diperoleh adalah tinggi.

Bagaimanapun, Hasbie yang tidak diwakili peguam, memohon agar mahkamah mengurangkan wang jaminan kerana beliau tidak bekerja dan terpaksa menanggung keluarga.

Beliau meminta mahkamah mempertimbangkan jasanya selama berkhidmat dengan kerajaan yang telah bekerja di bawah kepimpinan tiga orang Perdana Menteri.

"Saya telah setahun tidak bekerja dan saya berhenti kerja tanpa mendapat pencen," katanya -- BERNAMA

"Toyol" Separuh Bogel Pecah Masuk Rumah Jiran Dipenjara 11 Bulan

Posted: 10 Feb 2011 12:52 AM PST

Ditangkap ketika tidur

KUALA TERENGGANU - Seorang pemuda yang memecah masuk sebuah kediaman milik seorang guru yang juga jirannya dengan menggunakan taktik ala 'toyol' iaitu dalam keadaan separuh bogel dijatuhi hukuman penjara selama 11 bulan selepas mengaku bersalah di Mahkamah Majistret di sini, semalam.

Tertuduh, Mohd Suffian Ramli Pandian, 21, dari kampung Losong Haji Su mengaku bersalah memecah masuk rumah Hanini Hashim, 32, di Kampung Losong Haji Mohd pada 22 November tahun lalu, jam 3.45 pagi dalam keadaan separuh bogel dengan tubuh berlumuran minyak.

Tertuduh yang memakai baju penjara berwarna merah terus mengaku bersalah sejurus pertuduhan dibacakan di hadapan hakim, Siti Faraziana Zainuddin yang dijalankan oleh Inspektor Miky Anak Dustan Muda.

Bagaimanapun, tertuduh merayu diringankan hukuman terhadapnya kerana mengakui telah insaf dengan kesalahan yang dilakukannya sejak hari dia ditangkap lagi.

Mengikut fakta kes, tertuduh memecah masuk kediaman mangsa di Kampung Losong Haji Mohd kira-kira 3.45 pagi, 22 November tahun lalu, namun sempat disedari mangsa selepas terdengar bunyi bising sewaktu tertuduh sedang menyelongkar beg tangan mangsa yang diletakkan di ruang tamu.

Mendengar jeritan mangsa, tertuduh melarikan satu beg tangan yang mengandungi satu kamera digital jenama Canon, buku akaun Tabung Haji, kad nikad dan juga kad pengenalan serta dua bentuk cincin emas melalui pintu belakang rumah.

Tertuduh berjaya ditahan polis di depan surau Kampung Losong Haji Mohd pada hari sama, jam 6.20 pagi ketika sedang nyenyak tidur sewaktu jemaah mengerjakan solat Subuh.

Semasa tangkapan, tertuduh turut didapati positif dadah jenis Methamphetamine menerusi ujian saringan air kencing.

Tertuduh yang berwajah bersahaja selepas hukuman dijatuhkan dihadapkan dengan dua tuduhan di bawah Seksyen 457 Kanun Keseksaan kerana mencuri dan Seksyen 15 (1) Akta Dadah Berbahaya (ADB) kerana positif Methamphetamine.

Tertuduh mengaku bersalah di atas kedua-dua pertuduhan dan akan dihantar ke Penjara Penor, Kuantan untuk menjalani hukuman penjara 11 bulan yang berkuat kuasa pada tarikh tangkapan. -SH

Pengakuan: Adakan Hubungan Seks Dengan Penagih Lebih 5 Kali

Posted: 09 Feb 2011 11:23 PM PST

Ambil suka-suka, akhirnya terjerat

DUNGUN - "Kejadian ini bukan kali pertama. Sejak mengenalinya hampir dua bulan lalu, saya sudah melakukan hubungan seks dengannya lebih lima kali. Sudah menjadi perkara biasa bagi saya. Gambar fail

Itu pengakuan Ida (bukan nama sebenar) seorang gadis awal 20-an ketika dicekup pihak berkuasa selepas rumahnya di Kampung Pantai Laut, Paka yang disyaki menjadi sarang penagih itu diserbu polis, pagi kelmarin.

Gadis sunti berambut pendek itu ketika berkongsi detik hitam kehidupannya bersama Sinar Harian berkata, pembabitannya dalam gejala tidak bermoral bermula sejak dia meninggalkan bangku persekolahan.

Ketika itu, dia yang baru berumur 17 tahun mula bergaul dengan rakan sebaya, kebanyakannya remaja lelaki tidak bersekolah dan difahamkan sebahagiannya terdiri daripada mat rempit.

Menurutnya, dia mula terjebak dengan penyalahgunaan dadah selepas alam persekolahan, terutama tatkala melihat abang dan bapa kandungnya turut menjadikan musuh nombor satu negara itu sebagai teman hidup.

Ida yang pada mulanya agak sukar untuk menceritakan rahsia sulitnya itu mengakui, pergaulannya dengan rakan yang sudah terjebak dengan najis dadah itu akhirnya memerangkap dirinya sehingga menyebabkan dia turut mengambil bahan terlarang itu.

"Masa itu saya ambil hanya untuk suka-suka. Tidak keluar duit pun. Kawan berikan, bukan selalu. Kalau rasa gian, baru saya ambil.

"Saya berhenti buat seketika. Tetapi, kalau ada orang beri, saya ambil. Sekarang saya tidak ambil barang itu lagi, cuma buat hubungan seks. Itu pun bukan selalu, hanya bersama teman lelaki," katanya.

Ida yang ditangkap bersama teman lelakinya yang bekerja di pelantar minyak itu berkata, sebelum ini, perbuatan tidak bermoral itu sering dilakukan di rumah ibunya.

Namun, ia tidak pernah diambil tahu jiran tetangga, apatah lagi ditangkap pihak berkuasa.

Dalam kejadian itu katanya, dia tidak bernasib baik setelah ditangkap pihak berkuasa ketika berada berdua-duaan ketika serbuan dibuat di rumahnya, pagi kelmarin.

Ida yang hanya menundukkan muka ketika diberi kaunseling oleh pihak berkuasa, bagaimanapun dibebaskan setelah ujian saringan air kencing mendapati dia negatif dadah.

Arwah bapanya juga difahamkan meninggal dunia akibat HIV, manakala abangnya turut menjadi penagih dan sudah beberapa kali keluar masuk penjara kerana kesalahan itu.

Pasangannya, berusia 26 tahun, berasal dari Bukit Payong, Marang bagaimanapun selepas menjalani ujian saringan air kencing didapati positif dadah dan ditahan untuk siasatan lanjut mengikut Seksyen 15 (1) Akta Dadah Berbahaya 1952.

Pasangan terbabit ditahan sepasukan polis dari Bahagian Siasatan Jenayah Narkotik Daerah diketuai Inspektor Wahid Sujani yang melakukan serbuan di sebuah rumah di Kampung Pantai Laut, Paka, Dungun kira-kira jam 11.30 pagi kelmarin.

Ketua Polis daerah Dungun, Superintendan Dahlan Mohd Noor mengesahkan tangkapan terbabit. -SH

Thanks to Angela who sent this to me a yesterday. Smile a lot and have a great day!

6th Place
It was mealtime during a flight on a British Airways plane:
"Would you like dinner?" the flight attendant asked the man seated in the front row.

"What are my choices?" the man asked. g

"Yes or no." she replied.

5th Place
A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check tickets. As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened his trench coat and flashed her.

Without blinking an eyelid she said,
"Sir, I need to see your ticket, not your stub."

4th Place
A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at a branch of Sainsbury's but she couldn't find one big enough for her family.

She asked a passing assistant, "Do these turkeys get any bigger?"

The assistant replied, "I'm afraid not, they're dead."

3rd Place The policeman got out of his car and approached the boy racer he stopped for speeding. "I've been waiting for you all day," the bobby said.

The kid replied, "Yes, well I got here as fast as I could."

When the policeman finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

2nd Place
A lorry driver was driving along on a country road. A sign came up that read 'Low Bridge Ahead.' Before he realised it, the bridge was directly ahead and he got stuck under it. Cars are backed up for miles.

Finally, a police car comes up. The policeman got out of his car and walked to the lorry's cab and said to the driver, "Got stuck, eh?"

The lorry driver said, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of petrol!"

A teacher at a polytechnic college reminded her pupils of tomorrow's final exam.
"Now listen to me, I won't tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a death in your immediate family, but that's it, no other excuses whatsoever!"

A smart-arsed guy at the back of the room raised his hand and asked, "What would happen if I came in tomorrow suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?"

The entire class was reduced to laughter and sniggering.

When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student, shook her head and sweetly said, "Well, I suppose you'd have to write with your other hand."
