Janji ditepati? – Najib how about your promise to Teoh Beng Hock’s family?

Janji ditepati = promises kept. This is Najib’s and the BN’s so called Merdeka Theme.

Let us see how many promises that Najib made.

OK maybe just one would do. The rest you can search  yourself.

Najib promised the family of the late Teoh Beng Hock that no stones would be left uncovered in the investigation over Beng Hock’s death while in the custody of MACC (Malaysia Anti-corruption Commission). Was this kept?

Alert: Never spray aerosols near a fire

Please take very careful attention: All aerosol are highly imflammable. Some even place their aerosols under the gas stove or near gas tank. Please don’t:

This could be a common mistake in any household. Do read carefully please and circulate.

This is shocking accident happened on 13th May 2011 in Pune. This may be a good, useful lesson in safety for all of us.  

A housewife died due to burns sustained in the kitchen. Her husband too was hospitalized for injuries due to burns while trying to rescue his wife.    How it happened?:-   The gas stove was on and cooking under process. The lady observed some cockroaches near the sink and grabbed a can of insect killer and sprayed it near the gas stove, which was on. There was an explosion and in no time the poor woman was covered in flames, sustaining 65% burns. Her husband rushed in, tried to douse the flames and his clothes too caught fire. The husband is still in hospital, in the burns ward, still unaware that his wife was declared dead on arrival.   

Let us understand:-   All insect killer sprays such as "Hit", "Motrin" etc. have highly volatile and inflammable solvents.  The atomized nano spray particles spread extremely rapidly and one spark is enough to ignite this explosive mixture with oxygen present in air. Did the poor lady realize the hazard involved? Apparently not!

Please educate your family about this and spread the word around.... who knows you may save more than a life....

Internet Blackout day against Section 114A

this was swiped form Zorro Unmasked which was posted in support of the Malaysia Internet Blackout day. Will ask him if he wants it taken down:


What is Section 114A?

Section 114A is the second of two amendments made to Malaysia’s Evidence Act 1950.

Law Minister Nazri Aziz tabled the second amendment, formally known as Evidence (Amendment) (No2) Act 2012, in Dewan Rakyat on 18 April. James Dawos Mamit supported the motion, and Section 114A was passed after the second and third reading. On 9 May, Dewan Negara passed the amendment.

The amendment was gazetted on 31 July 2012. This means the law is now operational.

What is the purpose of Section 114A?

Section 114A deals with allegedly illicit or harmful content on the Internet. In short, the amendment enables law enforcement officials to swiftly hold someone accountable for publishing seditious, defamatory, or libelous content online.

How does Section 114A affect you?

Titled “Presumption of Fact in Publication”, Section 114A holds the following people accountable for publishing content online:

(1) those who own, administrate, or edit websites open to public contributors, such as online forums or blogs;

(2) those who provide webhosting services or Internet access; and

(3) those own the computer or mobile device used to publish content online.

In other words, if allegedly defamatory content is traced back to your username, electronic device, and/or WiFi network, Section 114A presumes you are guilty of publishing illicit content on the Internet.

But what if you were the victim of identity theft and a hacker wrongfully used your Twitter or Facebook account to post defamatory content?

Under Section 114A, you are still considered guilty until proven innocent.

What is wrong with Section 114A?

Section 114A is problematic for a number of reasons:

i) It disproportionately burdens average Internet users who are wrongfully accused of publishing seditious or defamatory content.

ii) It makes Internet intermediaries–parties that provide online community forums, blogging and hosting services–liable for content that is published through their services.

iii) It allows hackers and cyber criminals to be free by making the person whose account/computer is hacked liable for any content/data which might have changed.

iv) It is a bad law passed in haste and does not take into account public interest and participation.

Scam: Don’t ever call area codes 809, 294 and 876.

This email forward apparently had been verified by AT&T VERIFIES IT'S TRUE:

http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=6045

and also

SNOPES

http://www.snopes.com/fraud/telephone/809..asp

http://www.snopes.com/fraud/telephone/809..asp

But please do your own checkingL

809 Area Code
We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code. The woman said 'Hey, this is Karen. Sorry I missed you- get back to us quickly. I have something important to tell you.' Then she repeated a phone number beginning with 809. We did not respond. Then this week, we received the following
e-mail:
Do Not
DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876
809

Be sure you read this and pass it on.
They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been arrested, died, or to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc..
In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away. Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls.
If you call from the U.S. , you will apparently be charged
$2425 per-minute.

Or, you'll get a long recorded message. The point is, they will try to keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges.
WHY IT WORKS:
The
  809 area code is located in the Dominican Republic .
The charges afterward can become a real nightmare. That's because you did actually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will most likely tell you that they are simply providing the billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues they have done nothing wrong.
Please forward this entire message to your friends, family and colleagues to help them become aware of this scam.

Don’t get scammed by the BN manufactured Selangor Water Crisis. Read this. Important.

Something for the Selangor folks, especially the voters, to read, before they get taken in by the damned BN Government.

Koon Yew Yin I have read in theStar newspaper and is not only a philanthropist, but have tried to encourage other

Subject: SOMETHING'S FISHY

    Hi Folks,

Many of you maybe wondering what's all the fuss over the purported "Selangor Water Crisis". Is there actually a crisis or was BN trying to create a crisis?

Below is an article by the well-known philanthropist, Koon Yew Yin who hails from Perak. Koon Yew Yin graduated from Technical College, KL in the early 50's & he was the co-founder of established construction firms, Mudajaya, IJM & Gamuda.

So, it has something to do with transferring raw water from Sungai Semantan in Bentong, Pahang to Selangor via a 45km long tunnel thru the Main Range. This water transfer i.e. Pahang selling raw water to Selangor, was agreed during Mahathir's time & the tunnel is now purportedly 50% completed.

Apparently, the modus operandi of our corrupt political leaders is to create gigantic projects, dish them out to cronies who in turn, will give huge kickbacks, preferrably into oversea bank accounts of our political leaders.

In the 80's, we used to crack jokes about politicians promising to build bridges where there are no river. Now, they really build those "bridges" i.e. projects which we don't need.

SOMETHING'S FISHY: Why is BN in such a hurry to give out contracts

Written by Koon Yew Yin

SOMETHING'S FISHY: Why is BN in such a hurry to give out contracts - Koon Yew Yin

A few days ago, as reported in The Star, the Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin after chairing the Cabinet meeting declared that he wanted the Selangor Langat 2, costing Rm 8.65 billion, to be fully implemented without further delay.
Realising that the Federal Government has no power to force the Selangor Government to start construction of the Langat 2 treatment plant and other ancillary works which are sited in Selangor, he has instructed the Attorney General to look at the Federal Constitution and other legal documents to find a way out of this dilemma.
Most Malaysians will wonder why the BN Government is in such a great hurry to act on this project especially since it will take several years to implement and will have no immediate impact on the so called water crisis in Selangor.
No water crisis in Selangor
In fact, there is no water crisis but the BN Government just wants to create some fear and to justify a highly questionable public investment decision. As reported in a prominent business daily recently, although 50% of the 45 km tunnel has been completed to carry water from Sungai Semantan in Pahang, the Langat2 treatment plant has not started construction. If the treatment plant is not completed, the water from Pahang has nowhere to go and the partially completed tunnel and other completed construction will remain a white elephant.
Bad Intentions behind Langat 2?
Suspicions of bad intentions in this massive and extraordinary public infrastructure arise for several reasons. One reason is that Selangor is an opposition ruled state and we know that the Barisan desperately wants to show how badly the state is run by Pakatan. Hence, the decision to rush the project is to score political points especially since the elections are fast approaching.
However, a more important reason is that the Langat 2 project will be one of the largest water projects in the country. There will be billions of ringgit of contracts to give out. We all know the bad track record of the BN government with respect to super expensive projects in the name of privatization. Basically, what will happen is that a large part of the Langat 2 project will be outsourced to politically connected business and rentier individuals and groups. ‘Piratization’ will take place but this will be spun off in the mainstream media as an Economic Transformation Programme privatization project to resolve the water problems of the state which have been caused by Pakatan mismanagement.
Origin of the Langat 2 project
Also, let us not forget the origins of the Langat 2 project. This was a project initiated by the former state government under Menteri Besar Toyo who believed that the solution to Selangor’s water problem was to transfer water from Sungei Semantan in Pahang. To accomplish this transfer, a new dam - Kelau Dam – also has to be constructed to accumulate water to be pumped to the Langat 2 treatment plant. It is a fact that few members of the public if asked their opinion of the previous state government’s record on clean and frugal governance will have anything good to say about Toyo and his state exco members.
Alternative Approaches to Selangor’s Water Needs
The present Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid has clearly stated that Selangor is not in urgent need for more water and that there are cheaper schemes to secure additional water.
After careful consideration of the two conflicting approaches to resolving Selangor’s water problem – that of the BN and the present Selangor state government – I and water engineer colleagues who I have consulted strongly believe that there is a superior and cheaper way to supply additional water to Selangor than transferring water from Pahang through the proposed Langat 2 scheme.
One of the alternative proposals is to take water from Sungei Bernam, the river that forms the state boundary between Selangor and Perak. If readers look at Google map, they will notice that the upper reach of Sungei Bernam is in Selangor. This area is a possible area where a dam can be constructed to accumulate water to increase water supply. At the lower end of Sungei Bernam is Sungei Besar where a suitable water treatment plant can be constructed to pipe water to nearby Kuala Selangor and Klang.
Another alternative source of water is the mouth of Sungei Perak, at Teluk Intan which is very much closer to the main demand areas in Selangor than the Langat project. Since the level of these coastal regions is about the same it would be much cheaper to take additional water from Sungei Perak than from Sungei Semantan in Pahang through a highly expensive tunnel that has to be cut in the mountainous Main Range. Sungei Perak at the point of its mouth is several hundred meters wide and there is ample water to meet Selangor’s need for the long term future.
All these alternatives need to be explored by the Selangor as well as the Federal Government before a final decision is made on a project to definitively and economically resolve the state’s water needs. Common sense and rationality must prevail and not the crony ridden business as usual decision making which has earned Malaysia a reputation as a paradise for mismanagement and high level corruption.
Consumers must bear in mind that the BN Government will make you pay a higher water rate if the Langat 2 project is fully completed. You can stop it!

Silly Chua Tee Yong should be more concerned about NFC rather than Talam

Not sure where this email forward source is but is something every Malaysian should read and know about Chua Jr. (Chua Tee Yong) who as Deputy Agriculture Minister should be more concerned about NFC scandal rather than harping stupidly over this so called (unreal) Talam issue:

Subject: FW: Chua Jr under fire over NFC 'neglect"

Chua Jr under fire over NFC 'neglect'


2:25PM Aug 6, 2012

Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Chua Tee Yong has been asked how many times he has visited the National Feedlot Corporation’s (NFC) cattle-breeding project, which is in an “ugly state” today.NONEPetaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua (left) raised this when pointing out Chua’s tenacity in highlighting the Selangor government’s debt recovery exercise involving Talam Corporation Bhd. “Did (Chua) even visit the NFC a single time to perhaps count the number of cows being bred in the farm, instead of making multiple fishing trips to the scenic Bestari Jaya lakes?” he snapped in a statement. “Has Chua delivered his ministerial responsibilities by finding out why a RM250 million soft loan was extended to NFC ... in 2008, two years before (the) project implementation agreement was even signed between his ministry and NFC?” “Has Chua ever taken the trouble to find out why NFC has not paid a single sen back to the government (although the) ... first repayment instalment (has been due) since January 2012? “Can he provide an assurance to all Malaysians that every sen of the RM250 million will be collected back, whether in the form of cash or assets, just as the Selangor government has managed to successfully collect back the RM392 million Talam debts? “If not, then perhaps Chua could give Malaysians a reason why he is fit to be a deputy minister other than to be the errand boy for the Selangor Umno warlord and its minister Noh Omar.”NONEPua said that Chua (right) - in his crusade against the Selangor government's RM393 milliondebt recovery exercise - had made the serious and inaccurate allegation that it is bailing out Talam to the tune of RM1 billion. “Instead of a bailout, it has been proven that the Selangor government was able to collect back the full amount of RM392 million in the form of cash and assets. “The RM392 million was a debt legacy from the BN administration since the 1990s which was never properly accounted for or collected. “In fact, Talam shareholders must be ruing the day Pakatan Rakyat took over Selangor because they had to pay up their debts within two years

BN finally steps up their game

I have recently seen a couple of police officers setting up stations around some neighborhoods here and there. Well, my first thought was,

"OH NO!!! Don't tell me they are so hungry till they are setting up road block in housing areas?! #$&%*"

Chill, don't worry they are not doing that and in fact they are here to help us. These men whom I call "polis payung" will sit under the umbrella (DUH) and will take turns to patrol the surrounding areas in the look out for the first sign of *trouble.

Polis payung set up under a tree patiently.

However, if you take a closer look at their uniform you'll find that one of the officer is not quite like the other two. It's like playing photohunt 3D, without need for tokens YAY!

In this group of policemen, one of them is not your usual police because they are from a branch off the Royal Malaysia Police force. They are called PGA (Pasukan Gerakan Am) and you are supposed to feel really safe with them being around because they are actually the paramilitary arm of our Royal Police force. Wow sounds impressive doesn't it. Quoted from Wikipedia,


"A paramilitary is a force whose function and organization are similar to those of a professional military, but which is not considered part of a state's formal armed forces.
The term paramilitary is subjective, depending on what is considered similar to a military force, and what status a force is considered to have. The nature of paramilitary forces therefore varies greatly according to the speaker and the context."

Luckily the last paragraphed mentioned that the term is subjective or else I am going to be super disappointed and helpless. Just take a look at the picture below and see if you find anything different or err... abnormal.

Heh, what are you looking at? Look at the badge NOT the tummy!
PGA. Paramilitaries Guarding Away. 


Why are these PGAs rounding our homes, lending a helping hand to the police force? I think first of all we need to thank our beloved government BN, give them a round of applause for finally responding to the cries of terrorized citizens. Do take note on the crime rate that has been drastically increasing lately. Oh, maybe that is why they send the PGA to help with the security of our neighborhood and not the police. Heck they even sent the FRU (those dingdongs that blasted teargas and water canon at innocent citizens as if it's a game during peaceful gatherings) to do the job.

Even though the gesture is nice, I do know that there is a prawn at the back of the rock (ada udang di sebalik batu). You know, I know loh...BN is crying loud and clear for help, begging even because something managed to get through that thick skull of theirs and made them realize,

BN member 1: "UH-OH, we might lose the election!! Mr. Jib Ms. Mah will kill us if we they don't win.  Let's put on a show and do something."

BN member 2: "Oh I know!! We have a lot of task force at our service ready to dispense, since there are no gatherings or terrorist attack that is going to happen anytime lets send them out to ber-bonding with the police then help them to ronda. At least give them something to do since they're paid"


Good job BN.



* Please note that trouble is a very subjective term and is how it is judged is entirely up to the mood of the PDRM and current Malaysia government. Be warned.
