Anti-Lynas video clip kicks off international campaign
Inspired by the popular English idiom "the straw that broke the camel's back", several Malaysian students studying overseas have produced a do-it-yourself video to garner international support to reject the Lynas rare earths refinery.
The five-minute video, uploaded on YouTube, features foreigners from 54 cities in 30 countries - China, Japan, South Korea, Australia, India, Mexico, Costa Rica, Bangladesh, Ukraine, Russia, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Belgium, Venezuela, New Zealand, Switzerland, Iran, Puerto Rico, Vietnam, Germany, Thailand and Botswana - expressing their support for the anti-Lynas movement in their native languages.
The video has accumulated more than 800 views just a day after it was uploadedand has gone viral on Facebook.
According to local writer Echo Koh, who was involved, said Nicole Wong, a Malaysian student studying in the United States, was the one who initiated the video project.
Koh says on her Facebook website, "Wong panic after knowing Lynas will start operating soon but there was nothing she could do. She said she want to collect all the anti-Lynas footage from people all around the world and compile them into a video."
Then, across the Pacific Ocean, Low Wawa, a Malaysian studying in Taiwan, volunteered to take up the editing and post-production work for Wong's effort and with the help of several other volunteers, the two students rallied people from 54 cities to tell the anti-Lynas activists in Malaysia that they were not alone.
Low said on his Facebook posting, "You and I are all straws with little strength, but one by one we bind together, trying hard to do something. We do not know how much we can change, but we know that if we do not come forward, Kuantan will be doomed soon and so does our country. Will you be the last straw that breaks the camel's back? Let's join us."

Bila nafsu sudah memuncak di ubun-ubun maka seringkali pasangan yang sedang "birahi" tidak lagi memperdulikan untuk melampiaskannya dimanapun dan tak kira masa tanpa memperdulikan orang sekeliling mereka ada yang melihat atau tidak, sebenarnya walaupun manusia tidak ada yang melihat bukankah Tuhan sentiasa melihatnya. Dan jangan kita seperti binatang di bawah ini kerana mereka tidak mempunyai akal....

Melaka: PAS mendakwa usaha untuk mendaftarkan pengundi baru ke kawasan DUN Bukit Baru yang diwakili Ketua Menteri Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam. Gambar fail.
"Usaha itu dilakukan dengan dua cara. Pertama dengan mendaftarkan pelajar pusat pengajian tinggi supaya mengundi di DUN tersebut.
"Kedua ialah membawa masuk pengundi baru ke DUN Bukit Baru," kata Timbalan Pesuruhjaya PAS negeri, Kamaruddin Sidek.
Beliau berkata, dari maklumat yang diterima Umno meminta pelajar beberapa pusat pengajian tinggi di negeri itu supaya menukar alamat tempat mengundi kepada DUN Bukit Baru.
Mereka mensasarkan pelajar Universiti Teknologi Melaka (UTEM), MMU, UiTM serta Kolej Yayasan Melaka dengan mendapat bayaran RM300 seorang, kata Timbalan Pesuruhjaya PAS negeri, Kamaruddin Sidek.
"Kami mendapat maklumat termasuk gambar mengenai perkara itu," tambahnya.
`Didalangi Kemas dan SPR
Menurut beliau, DUN Bukit Baru kini mencatatkan jumlah penambahan pengundi baru keempat terbanyak di seluruh negara.
"Angka ini disahkan sendiri oleh Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN)," tambah beliau.
Pemimpin PAS itu juga mendakwa usaha memindahkan pengundi PAS dari tempat lain ke kawasan DUN Bukit Baru.
Katanya, beliau mendapat aduan daripada seorang pengundi lama PAS dari DUN Duyung yang telah dipindahkan ke Bukit Baru.
Kamaruddin berkata, beliau bertanyakan perkara itu kepada Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya (SPR) dan pegawai memberitahu pihaknya sedang mengemaskan data pengundi.
"Pegawai SPR memberitahu bahawa permohonan untuk menukar alamat pengundi berkenaan lengkap dengan tanda tangan pemohon.
"Tetapi saya syak sindiket ini didalangi Kemas bersama SPR. Masalahnya ramai pengundi yang tidak tahu bahawa nama mereka telah dipindahkan ke tempat mengundi lain.
"Sasarannya ialah terhadap pengundi-pengundi yang telah berumur 60 tahun ke atas," kata beliau lagi. -fmt

Christian DeHaemer has the following to say about gold:
Gold has been putting in a basing formation on lower volume for about a year now. The long-term trend is up. It has held above the $1,500-per-ounce mark all year and is now at $1,664 – putting in higher lows as it moves up.
The top, shorter-term downtrend line is about a month or two from hitting the uptrend line. This is called a pennant formation.
And when this happens the price breaks out one way or another. Like a coiled spring it launches as far as the trend went sideways. This is generally how gold moves – long consolidation patterns coupled with explosive short-term gains.
Given the amount of money printing and the accumulation of debt in the world, I would bet that the direction will be up.
Earlier this week Greg McCoach wrote a brilliant editorial projecting that gold will hit $19,525 an ounce before it is all over. You can find it below in The Cost of Debt: Debts DO Matter.
Now is the time to buy assets with real value. Gold, rare earths, and oil will all go up on inflation and the systematic destruction of all major currencies. Below you will find actionable information related to these assets.

The young clerk's responsibilities included bringing the judge a hot cup of coffee at the start of every day. Each morning the judge was enraged that the coffee cup arrived two-thirds full. The clerk explained that he had to rush to get the coffee delivered while it was still hot, which caused him to spill much of it along the way.
None of the judge's yelling and insults produced a full cup of coffee, until he finally threatened to cut the clerk's pay by one-third if he continued to produce one-third less than the judge wanted. The next morning he was greeted with a cup of coffee that was full to the brim, and the next morning and the morning after that.
The judge couldn't resist gloating over his success and smugly complimented the clerk on his new technique. "Oh, there's not much to it," admitted the clerk happily, "I take some coffee in my mouth right outside the coffee room, and spit it back in when I get outside your office."
Two guys rob a store, they burst out the door running as they hear the sirens of cop cars coming closer. The two dive into two separate bushes hoping they won't get caught. Soon the cop cars stop near the bushes and the two robbers hearing foot steps grow more nervous. A cop then grabs one of the guys out the bush laughing "Busted". As he drags the robber off he looks back shaking his head in shame... "Come on John!!!!!!!!" he screams "They got US!"
A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The man below says: "Yes. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above this field. You are between 40 and 42 degrees N. latitude, and between 58 and 60 degrees W. longitude."
"You must be an engineer" says the balloonist.
"I am" replies the man. "How did you know."
"Well" says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost."
The man below says "You must be a manager."
"I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well", says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you are going. You have made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now it is somehow my fault."
A philosophy professor stood before her class and had some items in front of her. When the class began, silently she picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks. She then asked the students if the jar was full? They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. She shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. She then asked the students again if the jar was full. They again agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. Now, said the professor, I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical check-ups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal. Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
But then... A student then took the jar which the other students and the professor agreed was full, and proceeded to pour in a glass of beer. Of course the beer filled the remaining spaces within the jar making the jar truly full. The moral of this tale is that no matter how full your life is, there is always room for BEER.
One night, Tim was walking home when, all of a sudden, a thief jumped on him. Tim and the thief were began to wrestle. They rolled about on the ground and Tim put up a tremendous fight. However, the thief managed to get the better of him and pinned him to the ground. The thief then went through Tim's pockets and searched him. All the thief could find on Tim was 25 cents. The thief was so surprised at this that he asked Tim why he had bothered to fight so hard for a 25 cents. "Was that all you wanted?" Tim replied, "I thought you were after the five hundred dollars I've got in my shoe!"
Two confirmed bachelors sat talking, their conversation drifted from politics to cooking. "I got a cookbook once," said one, "but I could never do anything with it." "Too much fancy work in it, eh?" asked the other. "You said it. Every one of the recipes began the same
way - 'Take a clean dish."
A lady dropped her handbag in the bustle of holiday shopping. An honest, little boy noticed her drop the handbag, so he picked it up and returned it to her. The lady looked into her handbag and commented, "Hmm... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills." The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a purse, the owner didn't have any change for a reward."

Ok, I decided to do something crazy recently… For the last six weeks, I used myself as a guinea pig and completed an overeating experiment. The purpose of the experiment was to see how much weight I would gain if I purposely tried to over-eat on a daily basis for six weeks straight. What do you think the results were? Did I get fat (after all, I gained 9 lbs on a 7-day cruise last year

I was out recently with some friends and we stopped at a fast food joint. I hate fast food joints, but sometimes everybody else wants to go there, so you just have to make the best of it and find something at least somewhat healthy. If you're forced to eat fast-food, here's a tip to make sure that you're not doing much damage to your body… ALWAYS AVOID the soda and anything deep fried

Every so often you read a sad story in the newspaper about someone who dove headfirst into a river or lake, without checking to see how deep the water was beforehand. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a shallow 18 inches and the consequence of this miscalculated plunge was a broken neck and a wheelchair. This reminds me of the way most people impatiently dive into strict, extreme, or

On your top 10 list of things that you find attractive in a woman, I'll bet facial beauty and a nice body account for 9 of the top 10 spots…and in many cases all 10. In fact, the vast majority of men… me included… will probably give a bit on the face if the woman has a rockin' body. Yet, in this same regard, how much will you compromise if the woman has the prettiest face you've ever seen…

I myself had heard stories of May 13. To those who survived May 13 - especially Chinese - they will tell you that it was started by then Selangor mentri besar Datuk Harun Idris. My son's nanny, now in her 60's, calls him what we say in Cantonese 'the worst evil'.

When you pause and reflect on the past decade as you look ahead to a new one, it makes you appreciate how short life is, how valuable time is and how quickly the time can pass you by – with nothing to show for it, if you don't plan otherwise. That's why the passing of another decade can feel like a wakeup call as much as a fresh start: Looking at the technological wonders that surround us

Depression is a debilitating condition with symptoms that may include feelings of hopelessness and despair, extreme fatigue and lack of interest in doing anything.

For years, women have been saying that they are objectified by the media but these days it looks as though guys are getting the same treatment. Everywhere you look the "ideal" male physique is portrayed as being super-buff, with giant pecs, bulging biceps, perfect six-pack abs and a super-trim waist. And it's not just models and movie stars-it's happening in cartoons and with action figures

Q. Is calorie a bad word? A. No, it's not bad—just misunderstood! Most people who use the word calorie simply don't know what it means. Also, in my experience, most people to go pale at the mere mention of the word. Based on those facts alone, I would eliminate calorie from the English vocabulary if I could. Q. Why is calorie such a misunderstood word? A. The

Now that I pissed off all of the treadmill and elliptical machine worshipers… let me say that if you truly enjoy mindlessly pumping away on a treadmill or elliptical (or exercise bike for that matter too), then by all means, keep doing what you enjoy, because enjoying your exercise is one of the most important aspects to sticking with any exercise program… However, don't say that I didn't

The controversies over cardio for fat loss are endless: steady state versus intervals, fed versus fasted, long and easy versus short and intense, and so on. Obviously there is a lot of interest in cardio training and how to do it right. Sadly, most people are still doing 2 things terribly wrong and it's killing their results…… As best as I can figure, there are two major reasons why people are

Although I always try to do my best with nutrition (probably 95% compliance), I've admitted before that I'm not perfect. Heck, nobody's perfect. And last week was an example… I went on vacation with about 10 of my buddies last week… a nice little tropical party vacation! So obviously, there was a good deal of drinking and eating just about anything and everything going on during the entire
