  1. One mountain has one mountain high , we lebih hebat than Tony Pua , tak sangka there is another http://www.nursamad.blogspot.com/ , lebih hebat than us

    Good information :
    a) Ummi Hafilda Ali yang pernah menggemparkan negara kerana mendedahkan salah laku Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim pada 1997 merayu abangnya, Azmin yang kini Timbalan Presiden Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) pulang ke pangkal jalan dan bertaubat.
    And Anwar’s response: has dismissed as a “mosquito issue” the challenge of Ummi Hafilda Ali

    b) NUR (NationalUrgent Response) Alert. (Not NURIN Alert which is what it was originally called).
    As you all know, NUR Alert is basically NURIN (Nationwide Urgent Response Information Network) Alert, an initiative pushed by several bloggers immediately after the body of missing 8 year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin was found in a sports/gym bag in PJS1, Petaling Jaya, on Sept 17 2007, nearly a month after she disappeared near her home in Section1, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur on Aug 20.

    Our Remarks :
    Mohd Farid Mohd Ariff , who is doing his doctorate in photogrammetry and laser scanning research at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) , said Nurin’s murder in 2007 had a huge impact on his decision to develop the technology – CCTV camera that can capture three-dimensional images, even in the dark , only start recording when motion is detected in its field of vision .

    “ If the CCTV image had been clearer at the time , the criminals involved might have been identified and caught.

    CCTV footage had reportedly shown a man getting off a motorcycle and walking with a sports bag into a building near the shoplot but no one was ever caught for the crime.

    But the entire surveillance system including software and training would cost around RM60,000 .

    c) Why we parents are not happy? One, some of the
    parents have many schooling kids. If f5 one have to
    spend nearly $1600 on the first day of school,
    imagine you have 5 kids and some in colleges where they need $500/600 pmth for food and books. Perbelanjaan biasa mcm mana?

    d) Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim wants an emergency state assembly sitting to be called to amend the constitution to return the power of appointing the state secretary to the Sultan and the Mentri Besar.
    Khusrin told a Press conference today that he is not a Barisan Nasional tool and has no personal agenda.
    “I am just a civil servant carrying out my duties.”

    Now, why would you want to amend the constitution? The law is there and you want to change it because you are unhappy and tidak puas hati that it’s not on your side?

    LKS will soon ask Parliament to amend the constitution
    if rain happens morning , the election must cancel immediately
    since we cant win when there is a flood

  2. Singh is King,

    Datuk Kak Ena pun ok. DNS pun cun jugak, new initials for new Datuk. But if you know her and has been calling her Kak Ena, which suggests that you know her well, then you’d know she would love it if you continue calling her Kak Ena and not Datuk Kak Ena or Datuk Ena.

    Aiya, aku macam spokesman dia pulak ..

    1. Datuk, in the blog posting kena jaga protocol. In private it will be a different thing altogether. But I prefer Kak Ena sound closer. Thank you for the tip any way.

      Enjoy your ride during the festive season and sorry I couldn’t join for these few days. Have a pleasant break.


  3. No Beaufort Sea drilling in Arctic for 2011 ….

    Shell Alaska has dropped plans to drill in the Arctic waters of the Beaufort Sea this year and will
    concentrate on obtaining permits for the 2012 season , company Vice President Pete Slaiby .
    The company had hoped last year to drill exploration wells during the 2010 open water season in both the Chukchi and the Beaufort but its plans were put on hold by
    Interior Secretary Ken Salazar after the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Salazar suspended applications for permits and has announced no timetable for lifting the suspension, saying the department will take a cautious
    guided by science and the voices of North Slope communities.

    Drilling in Arctic waters is opposed by environmental groups and some Alaska Native groups , who say petroleum companies have not demonstrated an ability to clean up a spill in ice-choked waters. They also say the remote location of drilling sites , the area’s notorious inclement weather and the lack of infrastructure , including a deep-water port , would make a cleanup of a major spill nearly impossible.

    They also claim drilling will stress marine mammals already being harmed by climate warming and diminishing sea ice , including polar bears , ice-dependent seals and walrus .

    Democratic US Sen. Mark Begich blamed the Obama administration ” Their foot dragging means the loss of another exploration season in Alaska , the loss of nearly 800 direct jobs and many more indirect jobs,” Begich said. ” That
    doesn’t count the millions of dollars in contracting that won’t happen either at a time when our economy needs the investment.”

    Shell has stressed that Arctic drilling would be in water far more shallow than the Macondo well, the site of the Gulf of Mexico disaster, and that the risk of a spill is minimal. The company also said it would position a second drilling ship in Alaska as a safety measure, so if the first drilling
    ship were crippled by a blowout , the second ship could drill a relief well .


    We support Obama who understand economy is still no the most important although necessary , but of course some Dreams About Putrajaya MP who object MRT , may say Shell idea is good as
    more petrol in world , will cause petrol price down , ….. just hope them later they dont complaint
    my apartment is in highest Floors in 18th Floor Condominium , is also facing flood problem . Ice Ice baby
