MH370: MOUTH BRAKES

drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 13 March 2014 - 10:25pm
In the midst of anger, suspense, desperation, depression spreading fast amongst the relatives and friends of passengers and crews of MAS AIRLINES MH370, it is understandable that many people will resort to all kind of ways to vent their anger  or emotional turmoils that they are going through to undergo this trying time.
Tears are common and very understandable and even acceptable. Harsh words may spring from uncontrollable emotions.
The opportunistic may show their 'uncalled for talents' to obtain popularity from the ready and hopeful crowd.

Sanity is difficult in those circumstances except to those who have trained themselves to self discipline, big picture thinking,crisis management skills, people handling,communication and interaction skills and most importantly FAITH IN THE ALMIGHTY.
Convinced that if He wills so be it! Kun fa yakun!

Thus. self retraint during the most difficult times is testimony to a person's character. Putting 'mouth brakes' when provoked to scream his head off and utter the most embarassing words and display uncivilzed actions needs hands-on practice. It doesn't come with ease. With practice insya Allah.

So, the mystery surrounding the fate of MH370 is a real test of man's Spiritual Quotient, Physical(technology) Quotient, Intellectual Quotient, Emotional Quotient and Social Quotient(social responsibility-beyond self) or S.P.I.E.S QUOTIENT.

用选票教训国阵,加影选民应集中投票给旺阿兹莎

wengsan.blogspot.com - 12 March 2014 - 2:57pm
加影选民必须吧选票集中投给旺阿兹莎,以教训国阵滥用司法程序迫害民联领袖。此外,加影选民也必须通过是次补选,告诉国阵人民不满国阵联邦政府的经济政策。 加影选民更必须通过选票告诉全马来西亚人民,即他们认同民联的政策,尤其是民联在雪州政府所推行迄今的各项良政。 在这次加影补选,捍卫加影州议席的民联公正党候选人是旺阿兹莎。挑战者是来自国阵马华的周美芬。周美芬也是前八打灵再也北区国会议员。她和旺阿兹莎都是在1999年同时当上国会议员,一直到2008年。周美芬是在2008年的全国大选败北。旺阿兹莎则在同年辞掉峇东埔国会议员,让安华通过补选在该区中选成为国会议员。 因此,加影人民也必须比较两人当任国会议员期间的表现。 加影人民必须通过选票教训国阵,停止滥用司法程序来迫害民联领袖。目前,国会在野党领袖安华在法庭含有的“快速审讯”下第二度被判肛交罪名成立,服刑五年。虽然安华获准保释上诉,Weng San Lauhttps://plus.google.com/110597857305874604035noreply@blogger.com0http://wengsan.blogspot.com/2014/03/blog-post.html

Krisis MH370 Beri Gambaran Pimpinan Negara Kita

drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 12 March 2014 - 1:38pm
Delegasi kumpulan kerjasama yang dihantar kerajaan China ke Malaysia dengan 13 orang terdiri daripada Kementerian Luar Negeri, Kementerian Keselamatan Awam, Kementerian Pengangkutan dan Pentadbiran Penerbangan Awam bertemu Pasukan Siasatan Malaysia di Hotel Sama-Sama, Putrajaya. Kegagalan urus krisis MH370 dedah keupayaan kepimpinan Malaysia, kata penganalisis

malaysian Insider/admin


Ketidakselarasan dan ketidakcekapan dalam mengendalikan insiden kehilangan pesawat MH370 menunjukkan bahawa lebih 50 tahun mengamalkan kawalan ketat ke atas maklumat adalah tidak sesuai bagi Malaysia dalam mengendalikan krisis yang kini sedang diikuti seluruh dunia, lapor Bloomberg hari ini.

Ia berkata, China mengesa Malaysia supaya lebih telus dengan “tindakan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak menjadikan sepupunya, Pemangku Menteri Pengangkutan, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, individu bertanggungjawab terhadap siasatan” mengapa pesawat milik Malaysia Airlines (MAS) hilang pada 8 Mac.


Pesawat Boeing 777- 200ER dalam perjalanan ke Beijing dengan 239 orang penumpang apabila ia hilang. Penyiasat dari sekurang-kurangnya sembilan negara masih berusaha mencarinya.

"Mereka mengendalikan isu global yang besar seolah-olah ia adalah politik domestik," kata Prof Emeritus Clive Kessler, ahli Sosiologi dan Antropologi di University of New South Wales di Sydney, yang menganalisis politik negara selama setengah abad .

“Dengan punca kehilangan masih tidak diketahui anda boleh memahami keperluan mengekalkan  budi bicara dan sikap berhati-hati tetapi ia dilihat sebagai usaha menyembunyikan kebenaran sama ada di Malaysia dan tempat lain di rantau."

"Pentadbiran Najib sedang menghantar mesej rakyat harus membiarkan ‘kerajaan memberitahu mereka apa yang mereka perlu tahu, bila mereka perlu tahu, dan bukan sebelum itu’,” kata Kessler.

"Itulah cara mereka bertindak sejak sekian lama dan mereka mula menyedari ia tidak lagi berkesan. "

"Hanya pada beberapa tahun kebelakangan ini terdapat gerakan ke arah pilihan raya lebih kompetitif, di beberapa daerah , yang memberi kelebihan untuk bercakap secara terbuka.

"Kerajaan kurang dalam memberi mesej yang jelas, diburukkan lagi dengan beberapa  petunjuk palsu mengenai  lokasi pesawat berada dan persoalan mengenai penyelarasan, memberi risiko imejnya di peringkat antarabangsa," kata laporan itu.

Kebanyakan akhbar dan rangkaian televisyen di Malaysia dikawal oleh kerajaan secara langsung atau tidak langsung.

Dan Najib, 60, masih belum membuat sebarang usaha untuk menggantikan Akta Hasutan dengan undang-undang yang akan melindungi kebebasan bersuara dan dalam masa yang sama menghalang hasutan terhadap kebencian agama atau etnik, kata agensi berita itu.

Undang-undang  yang diwujudkan sejak 1948 semasa Malaysia berada di bawah kawalan British, mengenakan hukuman penjara sekurang-kurangnya tiga tahun bagi perkataan dianggap menghasut, termasuk "membangkitkan rasa tidak puas hati" terhadap kerajaan.

MAS, sebuah syarikat di bawah kawalan kerajaan dalam satu kenyataan semalam berkata akan "terus bersikap telus dalam berkomunikasi dengan masyarakat umum melalui media" berhubung semua perkara yang melibatkan pesawat MH370.

Pencarian besar-besaran terhadap kehilangan pesawat itu tidak banyak yang boleh dilakukan dengan tiadanya panggilan atau isyarat kecemasan, cuaca buruk atau tanda lain mengapa pesawat itu boleh lenyap begitu sahaja pada fasa yang paling selamat sesuatu penerbangan.

Rondaan udara untuk hari kelima dengan pesawat dan kapal memenuhi kedua-dua belah perairan Semenanjung Malaysia selepas gagal mencari serpihan sepanjang laluan jet .

Penemuan dua penumpang menaiki penerbangan yang hilang menggunakan pasport curi menimbulkan kebimbangan mengenai tahap keselamatan imigresen Malaysia, kata laporan Bloomberg .

"Pihak Malaysia tidak boleh mengelak daripada tanggungjawabnya," kata Global Times, sebuah akhbar yang dikawal kerajaan Cina dalam ruangan editorial pada 10 Mac.

"Tindakan awal Malaysia tidak cukup pantas. Terdapat kelemahan dalam tugas MAS dan pihak berkuasa keselamatan."

Berhadapan dengan tekanan daripada keluarga 153 warga China yang menaiki pesawat, jurucakap Kementerian Luar China, Qin Gang untuk hari kedua semalam menyedari  kekurang kemajuan dalam operasi mencari Boeing Co 777-200.

"Kami sekali lagi meminta dan menggesa pihak Malaysia meningkat dan mengukuhkan usaha  menyelamat dan mencari," Qin kepada pemberita di Beijing.

"Kerajaan China juga berhadapan dengan banyak tekanan," kata Xu Liping, fellow kanan di Institut Strategi  Antarabangsa, Akademi Sains Sosial China di Beijing. Rakyat biasa di China berasa siasatan "tidak dilakukan secara profesional. "

Hubungan antara Malaysia dan China mungkin tidak akan terjejas, dia berkata , memetik perbualan telefon antara Perdana Menteri China Li Keqiang dan Najib pada 8 Mac mengenai kehilangan pesawat. "Bahagian ini tiada sebarang halangan."

China menyumbang RM8.262 bilion eksport Malaysia pada bulan Januari, jumlah kedua terbesar selepas Singapura. Malaysia meluluskan ASS$920 juta pelaburan asing dari China dalam sektor pembuatan pada 2013, meningkat daripada AS$646 juta tahun sebelumnya, mengikut laporan Lembaga Pembangunan Pelaburan Malaysia .

Kerajaan Najib mempunyai rancangan 10 tahun berjumlah RM1.4 trilion 10 tahun untuk membina jalan raya, pelabuhan dan kilang utiliti untuk menjadikan status Malaysia sebagai sebuah negara maju pada 2020.

Difahamkan Najib tidak mahu isu berprofil tinggi dalam situasi seperti ini mencemarkan personaliti berhati-hati beliau, menurut Joseph Liow, dekan bersekutu di S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies di Singapura.

"Beliau bukan jenis individu yang akan berhadapan dengan kamera tanpa ada sebarang kemajuan substantif dalam penyiasatan itu,” beliau dipetik sebagai berkata oleh Bloomberg.

"Hisham sangat berbeza daripada sepupunya. Dia seseorang yang tidak tidak selesa dengan perhatian," katanya  merujuk kepada Hishammuddin.

Hishammuddin, 52, menjadi pemangku menteri sejak pilihan raya umum Mei lalu. Beliau tidak memegang jawatan itu secara rasmi kerana terdapatnya gabungan dalaman yang menganggap ia dimiliki oleh parti tertentu dalam kabinet.

Pemimpin Asia yang lain berhadapan dengan persoalan kerana  tidak bertindak balas terhadap krisis serta-merta. Presiden Filipina Benigno Aquino dikritik kerana mengambil masa dua hari melawat mangsa Taufan Super Haiyan tahun lepas.

Begitu juga bekas Perdana Menteri China, Wen Jiabao, apabila mengambil masa lebih dua minggu untuk melawat tapak ribut salji terburuk di negara itu dalam tempoh 50 tahun pada 2008.

Di Amerika Syarikat, Presiden George W. Bush dikritik kerana cara beliau mengendalikan kerosakan yang disebabkan taufan Katrina pada 2005 selepas beliau tetap meneruskan percutian di saat New Orleans ditenggelami air.

Beliau memendekan percutiannya sebanyak dua hari untuk meninjau kerosakan dari udara, yang merupakan "kesilapan besar " kerana ia membuatkan beliau kelihatan "asing dan bersikap tidak peduli. "

Najib perlu memastikan rakyat Malaysia dan masyarakat antarabangsa bahawa kerajaannya sedang melakukan segala yang termampu, kata Vishnu Varathan, seorang pakar ekonomi di Mizuho Bank Ltd, Singapura.

"Apa yang boleh dilakukan adalah perdana menteri mewakilkan setiausaha pengangkutan untuk mencari pesawat dan melantik  seorang lagi individu bertanggungjawab bagi menyiasat pelanggaran keselamatan dan seorang lagi bagi mengendalikan hubungan antarabangsa," kata beliau yang dipetik oleh Bloomberg.

"Ia tidak mudah untuk menyampaikan semua yang berlaku dan kerajaan perlu mengetengahkan perkara-perkara ini. "

Apa yang jelas, imej yang diberi oleh pihak berkuasa yang mengetuai penyiasatan sedang bergelut untuk berkomunikasi dengan berkesan. MAS mengeluarkan tiga versi kenyataan akhbar semalam untuk membetulkan beberapa kesilapan. Satu daripada adalah mengenai perkataan "expensive” (mahal) bagi operasi menyelamat, yang sebenarnya adalah “extensive” (memperluaskan).

"Terdapat beberapa isu besar – ketelusan, perkongsian maklumat, persoalan berkaitan keselamatan," kata Bridget Welsh, seorang profesor sains politik di Universiti Pengurusan Singapura .

"Mereka tidak berjaya mengawal perbincangan dan masalahnya ialah mereka tidak berjaya meyakinkan. Semua orang ingin mendapat kebaikan daripada keraguan yang timbul tetapi ini adalah berkaitan krisis kredibiliti pentadbiran."

Najib menangguhkan lawatan ke Mauritius, mengikut agensi berita Bernama. Beliau juga bertemu keluarga anak-anak kapal yang hilang di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur, kata pejabat akhbarnya di Twitter pada 8 Mac.

"Saya memberi jaminan kami akan melakukan segala yang boleh mengikut kemampuan kita," Najib berkata di Twitter pada 9 Mac.

"Kami mengucapkan terima kasih atas doa anda, bantuan dan semangat perpaduan."

Pejabat Najib mengajukan pertanyaan mengenai kebimbangan China berkenaan pengendalian kejadian itu kepada pihak berkuasa yang terlibat dalam penyiasatan.

Hishammuddin yang juga Menteri Pertahanan, dipilih sebagai naib presiden Umno pada bulan Oktober, meletakkan beliau sebagai calon pengganti Najib. Beliau adalah anak saudara perdana menteri Malaysia kedua ini iaitu bapa Najib, Abdul Razak Hussein.

"Kekurangan pengalaman, sesiapa sahaja akan diuji," kata ini Welsh. "Ini adalah ujian Hisham, dan ujian kerajaan Najib."

Bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, yang menerajui Malaysia melalui krisis kewangan Asia 1998, "seorang pemimpin yang kuat," kata Liow RSIS.

Dr Mahathir bertindak dengan kawalan modal apabila pelabur melarikan diri dari Asia semasa krisis ekonomi. Beliau memanggil jutawan kewangan George Soros "penyangak" yang cuba memusnahkan pertumbuhan melalui serangan spekulatif ke atas mata wang. – 12 Mac, 2014.

MH370 masih 50-50 walau sudah 4hari ghaib, pelajaran ke 2

drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 11 March 2014 - 10:00pm
Bismillah.
Walaupun sudah 4 hari kapalterbang MAS MH370 'hilang' di angkasa dan tidak ada bukti ianya terhempas langsung setakat hari ini, peluang untuk anak kapal dan semua penumpang di dalam pesawat itu masih berada 50% selamat dan 50% sebaliknya.
Kita  harus yakin bahawa Allah berkuasa di atas segalanya, termasuk ke atas perkara yang tidak mampu di cerna pancaindera kita kerana keterbatasan kita sebagai manusia.
Teknologi tinggi tidak boleh menjamin keselamatan. Ledakan maklumat tidak memahamkan kita erti segala fenomena yang berlaku.
Hiruk pikuk seantero dunia ekoran keganjilan hilang MH370 DI RADAR dan tidak dapat di kesan oleh pihak kawalan udara termasuk angkatan tentera udara merimaskan manusia sejagat terutama sekali ahli keluarga penumpang dan anak kapal. Pelbagai teori telah timbul.Semuanya adalah kemungkinan-kemungkinan yang tidak boleh ditolak dek tiada jawapan daripada pihak yang bertanggungjawab yang boleh mententeramkan imaginasi orang yang risau.
Namun kita sebagai makhluk yang telah dicipta oleh Allah swt mesti akur dan yakin kepada apa yang telah diberitahu Allah Yang Maha Pencipta bahawa Dialah berkuasa dia atas segala sesuatu. Dialah YANG MAHA PELINDUNG. Dia yang menghidupkan dan mematikan. Segala-galanya bergantung kepada Dia.Kalau alat canggih manusia tidak boleh mengesan MH370, RADAR TULEN ILAHI sentiasa mengesan kita dan MAHA MENGETAHUI di mana MH370.

Kepada semua keluarga dan kenalan para penumpang, marilah kita rujuk kembali kepada yang MAHA BERKUASA, yakni ALLAH.Kepadanya kita mengadu dan berserah.
Moga Allah menyelamatkan mereka semua. Amin.
فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ (36:83
  • 36:83 (Asad) Limitless, then, in His glory is He in whose hand rests the mighty dominion over all things; and unto Him you all will be brought back! 
  • 36:83 (Malay) Maka Maha Suci (Allah) yang di tangan-Nya kekuasaan atas segala sesuatu dan kepada-Nya lah kamu dikembalikan.

    Shirk Must be avoided At All Cost

    drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 11 March 2014 - 6:54pm


    MH370 brings bomohs, preachers and psychics out
    The mystery surrounding MH370 is resulting in 'otherworldly' advice and offers.

    Bernama reports that well-known Malaysian bomoh Ibrahim Mat Zin - known as Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP - has landed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), to help find the plane using spiritual means and prayer.

    Ibrahim claims to have been invited by a national leader. He also said he uses a fish tap hook and bamboo binoculars to aid his search for the victims.

    He said that while he prayed at the KLIA entrance, his eyes hurt and his vision turned black, adding that he thinks the plane is still in the air or has crashed into the sea. MH370, which took off at around 12:40 am on Saturday, had enough fuel for around 8 hours of flight.

    Meanwhile, a YouTube video has emerged, claiming that Nigerian preacher, televangelist and faith healer T.B. Joshua predicted the MH370 incident on July 28, 2013.

    His prophecy, it is claimed, concerned 'an Asian nation' where a 'large aircraft, carrying over 200 people would develop a fault soon after takeoff'. Joshua goes on to claim that the fault 'can be discovered at the tarmac, but because of impatience...'.

    The YouTube video, uploaded under the title of Malaysia Airlines Prophecy, was published on March 8 and has gained over 140,000 views so far.

    Back in Malaysia, a psychic, who wants to remain anonymous, predicted that 'people will be walking out from the wild into civilisation' in a day or two. He advised officials to 'search inland around Ca Mau, where he said there's a field 'just enough for a plane to land'.
    He says the plane will be found in 'the snowy mountains' of U Minh Thoung National Park in Vietnam. The park is an 80 sq km region in the southwest tip of Vietnam.

    Psychics have long claimed to be able to predict future events. Nostradamus in the 16th century is said to have predicted future events like the rise of Napolean and Hitler as well as the World Trade Centre attacks. However, the criticism of Nostradamus is that most of his predictions only make sense in hindsight.

    In the 20th century, Jeane Dixon became famous for predicting that President John F. Kennedy would be assassinated while in office. However, she also predicted that World War III would start in 1958 and that Russia would be the first country to land a man on the moon. Neither prediction came true.

    MH 370 Apa yang saya boleh belajar?

    drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 10 March 2014 - 10:08pm
    Sudah 2 hari seluruh dunia gempar kerana sebuah kapal terbang secara tiba-tiba hilang di skrin radar pusat kawalan, disahkan memang tidak sampai ke destinasinya dan dibuktikan dengan jelas memang sudah berlepas ke udara meninggalkan KLIA mengikut jadual. Pesawat MH 370 yang semakin terkenal itu masih belum boleh dikesan, selamat atau sebaliknya.
    Nasib 12 anak kapal dan 239 orang penumpang masih menjadi teka teki.

    Beribu- ribu kapal terbang berlepas dan mendarat dengan selamat di seluruh permukaan bumi setiap hari. Kenapakah kapalterbang MH370 ini berjaya berlepas dengan selamat tetapi kemudian hilang secara tiba-tiba.....Di manakah gerangan pesawat ini pergi? Kalau terhempas sekalipun sudah tentu ada kesannya...rangkanya, serpihannnya. Kalau di laut....ada pelampungnya.... 

     Tetapi poin yang saya mahu tekankan ialah, tujuan kita naik kapalterbang ialah untuk memindahkan jasad kita daripada satu tempat permukaan bumi ke tempat yang lain dengan menggunakan alat pengangkutan yang terbaik waktu ini, iaitu kapal terbang. Zaman dahulu kita, ada kapal laut. Sekarang kita menggunakan kapal terbang yang boleh mengangkut jasad kita dengan waktu yang lebih singkat dan selesa.
    Perkara yang manusia sering lupa ialah daya yang mmemperjalankan kenderaan seperti kapalterbang, kapal laut, ataupun kenderaan darat seperti kereta, motorsikal bahkan basikal sekalipun ialah ALLAH YANG MAHA KUASA. Apabila Allah curahkan segala nikmat melalui kemudahan dan keselesaan , manusia akan merasa megah dengan keupayaannya. Selah-olah manusia ini mempunyai kuasa mutlak. Sikaya merasa hebat kerana beranggapan kekayaannya memberi bahagia yang mutlak, semua tunduk kepada kekayaannya. TETAPI dia lupa, apakah nilai kekeyaannya bila dibanding dengan kekayaan AL GHANIY, YANG MAHA KAYA. Ada pula yang takabbur bila ia mempunyai otot berketul dan merasa dirinya kuat, tetapi tatkala kuman virus yang amat halus yang tidak boleh dilihat dengan mata kasar, menyerangnya melalui gigitan haiwan lemah seperti nyamuk menyebabkan dirinya tidak bermaya untuk bangun kerana demam teruk.Sebab itu apabila kita sihat jangan lupa Allah yang mengurniakan kita kesihatan. Apabila kita kuat jangan lupa, AL QAWIYY, yang MAHA KUAT.

    Justeru, apabila sebuat 'mesin besi' yang boleh terbang membawa kita kepada pelbagai destinasi yang kita pilih secara sengaja jangan lupa LA HAULA WALA QUWWATA ILLA BILLAH, tiada daya dan kekuatan melainkan dengan izin Allah.
    Pengajaran bagi saya yang selalu sibuk, dan tuan/puan yang sudi bersama di sini, segala-galanya yang berlaku di dunia ini berjalan dengan kehendak Allah, ketentuan dan takdirNya. Kita sebagai manusia jangan biadap dan sombong kepada Tuan Empunya segalanya, ALLAH YANG MAHA ESA.
    Marilah kita ingat mengingati, pesan berpesan jangan buat dosa. Bukan sahaja orang buat dosa yang kena kemurkaan Allah , yang lain pun panik dan mendapat padahnya.
    Astaghfirullahal 'adziim.
    Ampunkan dosa dosa kami ya Allah

    #Pray4MH370 : Radius Pencarian Dipertingkatkan

    srimuda.blogspot.com - 10 March 2014 - 10:12am

    Cuaca malam itu baik. Langit cerah diterangi cahaya bulan. Kerlipan dan cahaya lampu dari pelantar minyak dan serta bot nelayan kelihatan jelas seperti rentetan mutiara menebari seluruh perairan di timur laut Kota Bharu. Dan pesawat MH370 yang terbang pada malam itu lenyap begitu sahaja.

    Untuk tiga hari berturut-turut, lebih banyak kapal dan pesawat sedang mencari kehilangan Boeing 777- 200ER yang membawa 239 penumpang sejak ia terputus hubungan dengan pengawal trafik udara pada jam 1:30 pagi Sabtu.

    Tiada siapa melaporkan terdapatnya letupan di udara dan pihak berkuasa Amerika Syarikat juga mengesahkannya daripada data yang diperoleh dari satelit dan radar pengesan di kawasan itu, yang juga salah satu bahagian paling sibuk di Laut China Selatan.

    The Wall Street Journal hari ini melaporkan, misteri kehilangan pesawat MH370 adalah sesuatu yang penting sehingga zon lokasi yang disyaki dengan cepat menjadi zon ketenteraan dengan kehadiran pelbagai jet pejuang, kapal perang canggih dan berharga jutaan ringgit untuk bersama-sama menyertai misi mencari dan menyelamat.

    MAHUKAH SELEBRITI membanting tulang mencorak iklim positif REM-BEL?

    drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 9 March 2014 - 10:15pm
    Ketika budaya destruktif melanda orang muda, golongan manakah yang paling efektif melorong mereka ke landasan positif dan konstruktif?Lazimnya golongan dewasa suka melabelkan anak muda sebagai golongan yang sukar di tegur, cenderung melakukan perkara yang membimbangkan dan 'degil'. Mereka mudah melatah melihat segelintir anak muda yang lalu dan terus mengata atau mengumpat mereka dengan mengeluarkan kata-kata yang amat tidak menyenangkan hati orang muda. Termasuk di perkarangan masjid dan surau.
    Tidak hairanlah kenapa golongan remaja belia(REM-BEL) TIDAK suka ke masjid /surau. Mereka tidak gemar bergaul dengan orang dewasa yang memandang lekeh kepada mereka walhal hanya segelintir daripada mereka yang 'buat hal'!! Mereka pula yang terpalit lumpur!!
    Selaku EXCO PEMBANGUNAN MODAL INSAN KERAJAAN SELANGOR, saya cuba memikirkan bagaimana mahu melentur anak anak muda yang mentah dan suci jiwanya ini agar terus terlorong ke arah jalan fitrah yang diredhai oleh Penciptanya agar sentiasa menjaga keinsanannya yang cenderung ke arah kebaikan.Namun mereka memerlukan kompas hidup dan pelindung daripada perosak yakni runtunan nafsu dan bisikan syaitan.
    Oleh kerana budaya hedonisme sudah begitu menebal di kalangan masyarakat di Malaysia, logiknya golongan REM-BEL ini juga akan didapati lebih mudah tertarik dengan program atau tempat yang ada unsur kesenian, santai, lepak-lepak. Maka, jawatankuasa tetap pembangunan modal insan kerajaan Selangor menggunakan strategi 'soft spot' orang muda ini untuk menjadi trademark program yang melibatkan golongan REM-BEL.Ramai sudah selebriti yang telah dilibatkan bersama program anjuran jawatankuasa ini, yang di kenali dengan jenama GeMS(Generasi Idaman Selangor). Selebriti daripada penyanyi, pelakon, pelawak, personaliti radio/tv, imam muda dll ini dijemput untuk menyuntik kesedaran kepada golongan REM-BEL tentang nilai nilai dan tabiat positif disulami dengan nasihat pimpinan yang juga diutarakan secara santai dan tidak menekan, merimas atau menakutkan REM-BEL ini.Saya menyeru kepada golongan yang berpengaruh seperti para artis dan selebriti, pamerkanlah akhlak terbaik kerana apa yang anda lakukan, ucapkan, dan amalkan akan menjadi ikutan ramai remaja belia. Andai anda melakukan yang terbaik daripada tata susila dan syakhsiyyah anda terpuji maka anda bakal menempah pahala yang banyak daripada pengikut di kalangan peminat anda. Namun, sekiranya anda menjadi model yang berperangai buruk dengan bermaksiat dan terbabit dalam perkara mungkar, ikutan pengikut anda akan menjadi liabiliti dan menambahkan beban dosa anda.JOM PILIH!JOM JADI BAIK!!

    Plight MH370 in flight to Beijing: ? Human Error, Structural Failure, Engine Failure, Avionic or Others

    drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 9 March 2014 - 3:55pm
    UPDATE [2.05pm]: AFP reports that Vietnamese military has found a bigger and clearer oil slick, but nothing else =========================================================================

    06:36 GMT - "Puzzled" - Malaysian Airlines CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya says the plane's systems would have set off alarm bells if it turned back."When there is an air turn-back the pilot would be unable to proceed as planned," he says, adding authorities are "quite puzzled" over the situation.

    06:13 GMT - Cause - On the possible cause of the incident, Dunleavy says the airline "cannot make any assumptions about the root cause until we locate the aircraft."
    "We will not know until we find the aircraft and find the black box."
    Where the stolen passports are concerned he says the "airline itself cannot validate a passport we just need to check that when we see a passport it doesn't look like it's been forged, and it's got a legitimate visa."
    "Airlines don't have access to national databases about passports, that would be a government investigation."

    06:09 GMT - Airline defended - Hugh Dunleavy, commercial director for Malaysia Airlines, is speaking to reporters in Beijing and defending its response to the crisis which has come under attack from distraught relatives.
    He says the airline has brought 92 people trained in dealing with stressful situations to Beijing.
    "We came here as soon as we could. Even as we speak now we have not been able to locate the aircraft, so you can imagine four or five hours into the event you are much less certain of the information."
    The airline will take relatives of the passengers to Malaysia, he said. "It's a decision for the families, if they want to go to Malaysia to be closer to the operations of the search and rescue activities we will take them there."
    "The earliest they will depart will be tomorrow, before they can depart we've got to make sure they've got passports and visas."

    06:06 GMT - Emotional scenes - Tom Hancock in Beijing reports emotional scenes at the Lido Hotel, where relatives continue to arrive from across China, hugging their loved ones, with some crying.

    06:02 GMT - Turned back - Malaysia's air force chief, General Rodzali Daud, citing radar data, says authorities are looking into the "possibility" the plane had attempted to turn back.
    "There is a distinct possibility the airplane did a turn-back, deviating from the course."
    "One of the possibilities is that it was returning to Kuala Lumpur."

    06:01 GMT - Summary - As the search continues a quick summary of events in the last few hours:
    Malaysia has launched a terror probe and is investigating four people as it emerges at least two passengers boarded using stolen European passports.
    The US Federal Bureau of Investigation is sending agents and technical experts to assist the probe.
    Relatives of the 153 Chinese nationals on board, now camped out at the main international airport in Beijing, bemoan the lack of news.
    Vietnamese boats reached the scene of two large oil slicks detected overnight but found no sign of the plane, while the search area has been expanded to 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 square miles.)
    However, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman of Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation says he cannot "confirm" the existence of the oil slicks.
    Malaysia Airlines says it is "fearing for the worst," and urged "all Malaysians and people around the world to pray for flight MH370."
    China, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore have all sent vessels and aircraft and the US Navy has sent a surveillance plane and a destroyer carrying two helicopters.

    05:45 GMT - Bigger slick - An unanmed Vietnamese military official at the Ho Chi Minh City military air base, who is helping to co-ordinate search efforts, says the oil slick "was bigger and clearer today."
    "The weather is good this morning so search and rescue teams saw the oil more clearly. But they didn't see anything else," says the officer, who was not on the plane but had received reports from his staff.

    05:34 GMT - Recovery specialist - Malaysia Airlines says it "is continuously working with the authorities in providing assistance. In fearing for the worst, a disaster recovery management specialist from Atlanta, USA will be assisting Malaysia Airlines in this crucial time."

    05:28 GMT - Search area - The search area has been expanded to 10,000 square kilometres (3,900 square miles), Vietnam's Civil Aviation Department says.

    05:24 GMT - International effort - The plane's disappearance has triggered a search effort involving vessels from several nations with rival maritime claims in the tense South China Sea.
    China, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore threw vessels and aircraft into the effort.
    The United States also dispatched a destroyer, with two helicopters aboard, and a surveillance plane.

    05:22 GMT - Oil slicks - During the initial search on Saturday Vietnam's military said two oil slicks had been spotted, but no debris.
    "Two of our aircraft sighted two oil slicks around 15 to 20 kilometres (10-12 miles) long, running parallel, around 500 metres apart from each other," the Vietnam army's deputy chief-of-staff, Vo Van Tuan, told state-run VTV.
    "We are not certain where these two oil slicks may have come from so we have sent Vietnamese ships to the area."
    "I think the two oil slicks are very likely linked to the missing plane," Vice-Admiral Ngo Van Phat, who is helping to direct the search mission, told AFP.

    05:18 GMT - Press - No sooner had relatives appeared at the Lido Hotel's restaurant than some members of the press hovered over their tables, even putting recorders on the table to try and tape conversations.

    05:14 GMT - Hotel lunch - My colleague Tom Hancock Lido Hotel in Beijing where relatives are gathered, says some relatives have left their rooms to claim a buffet lunch at the hotel's restaurant.
    A woman apparently in her twenties, wearing a bright pink jacket, clutched on to an elder woman's arm, sobbing gently as a hotel staff member assigned them a table.
    A group of around seven people in bright blue jackets labelled 'special assitance team' are clustered at the entrance to the lunch area.

    05:11 GMT - Lieutenant-General and Deputy-Chief General of Staff of Vietnamese Army, Vo Van Tuan, has told my colleague in Hanoi, Le Thang Long, the "biggest challenge for our research is to locate the position of the suspect site, especially during the night."
    "That's why we have mobilized this morning a boat equipped with radar and equipment which can allow us to inspect under-water zones. I hope this will bring us new discoveries."

    05:10 GMT - Passengers - The 153 Chinese passengers aboard the plane included an infant, while 38 Malaysians and seven Indonesians were aboard.
    Six Australians, five Indians, four French nationals, and three Americans including an infant, were also among those listed and the Dutch Foreign Ministry said it believed one Dutch passenger was on the plane.

    05:06 GMT - Relatives mourn - For the relatives of the 227 passengers -- including 153 Chinese nationals -- and 12 crew, there is little comfort.
    Earlier Sunday the airline admitted: "It has been more than 24 hours since we last heard from MH370 at 1:30 am. The search and rescue team is yet to determine the whereabouts of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft."
    It then urged "all Malaysians and people around the world to pray for flight MH370."

    04:55 GMT - Search goes on - Rescuers are still hunting for the whereabouts of the twin-engine plane which mysteriously disappeared from radar screens somewhere between Malaysia's east coast and southern Vietnam.
    Flight MH370 sent no distress signal or reports of rough weather, or other signs of trouble, and both Malaysia's national carrier and the Boeing 777-200 model used on the route are known for their solid safety records.
    But about one hour into the flight, it dropped from radar screens.
    Adding to the mystery are the two passengers who appear to have been using stolen EU passports.
    An Austrian, named in reports as Christian Kozel, had his passport pinched in Thailand in 2012, while Italian Luigi Maraldi, 37, had his stolen last year, also in Thailand, officials and sources have said.
    Despite their names being on the passenger manifest, neither man was on the flight.
    FBI join investigation

    04:52 GMT - US built - The US National Transportation Safety Board could also send a team to join the investigation because the plane was built in the US by Boeing, according to the FBI official.

    04:50 GMT - Passports - The stolen passports used by two passengers on the plane are believed to have come from an Italian and an Austrian.
    But a Department of Homeland Security official told the media that "just because they were stolen doesn't mean the travelers were terrorists. They could have been nothing more than thieves. Or they could have simply bought the passports on the black market."

    04:48 GMT - Video scan - The FBI official stressed there was "no evidence" of terrorism thus far, but added FBI personnel will help review video from the Kuala Lumpur airport for images of passengers at the ticket counter, security sections and the boarding area.
    The agents can then use counterterrorism technology to find any possible matches with known members of Al-Qaeda or other terror groups.

    04:46 GMT - FBI involved - Earlier US media reported the FBI is sending agents and technical experts to assist in the investigation of the missing plane that had several Americans aboard.
    US officials told The Los Angeles Times they are trying to determine whether there was any terror link to what caused Flight 370 to go missing as it carried 239 people from Kuala Lumpur toward Beijing.
    "But so far, what happened is a mystery," an official told the newspaper.

    04:41 GMT - Terror link - The minister says Malaysia is probing "four names" over airline security fears.

    #WanAzizah4Kajang :We Will Never Surrender

    srimuda.blogspot.com - 9 March 2014 - 2:48pm

    Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail sekali lagi menggantikan suaminya Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, kali ini dengan menggantikan ketua pembangkang itu bagi Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kajang.

    Wan Azizah diumumkan sebagai calon di Bilik Gerakan Pilihan Raya Kecil (PRK) Kajang di Batu 12 hari ini yang diumumkan sendiri oleh Anwar.

    Anwar terlucut kelayakan untuk bertanding di kerusi yang dikosongkan penyandang daripada PKR iaitu Lee Chin Cheh selepas Mahkamah Rayuan menjatuhkan hukuman penjara lima tahun atas kesalahan meliwat bekas pembantunya Saiful Bukhari Azlan pada 2008.

    Wan Azizah akan berdepan dengan calon Barisan Nasional, Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun dan Datuk Zaid Ibrahim bagi kerusi berkenaan.

    Lee memenangi kerusi DUN Kajang pada Pilihan Raya Umum 2013 (PRU13) dengan majoriti 6,824 undi, menewaskan calon BN Lee Ban Seng dan beberapa calon bebas dalam pertandingan enam penjuru.‎

    "Badan kehakiman diperalatkan Umno untuk menghalang saya sebagai calon.
     "Dengan ini saya umumkan Wan Azizah sebagai calon PRK DUN Kajang," kata Anwar.

     Anwar turut berkata, beliau akan berkempen seperti biasa bagi membantu isterinya itu.
    Keputusan berkenaan turut diterima sebulat suara rakan komponen PR daripada PAS dan DAP serta memberi komitmen untuk membantu kemenangan Wan Azizah di Kajang.

    "Saya mewakili rakyat biasa melihat ketidakadilan ini. Kita tidak boleh ditindas, terus ditindas.
    "Jangan undur, kita teruskan perjuangan. Sebagai Presiden PKR, saya ambil tanggungjawab ini," kata Wan Azizah pada sidang media itu.

    Dengan pengumuman itu, Wan Azizah sekali lagi membantu karier politik Anwar selepas beliau bertanding di kerusi Parlimen Permatang Pauh pada 1999 ketika Anwar dipenjarakan atas kesalahan salah guna kuasa.

    Wan Azizah bertanding atas tiket Parti Keadilan Nasional yang kemudiannya ditukar kepada Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

    Beliau memenangi kerusi berkenaan selama dua penggal iaitu pada pilihan raya 2004 dan 2008.
    Pada September 2008, beliau meletakkan jawatan bagi membolehkan Anwar menyertai semula arena politik sebagai wakil Parlimen. – 9 Mac, 2014.

    #Pray4MH370 : Merujuk Rakaman Radar,Kemungkinan Boeing 777 Cuba Berpatah Balik - TUDM

    srimuda.blogspot.com - 9 March 2014 - 11:08am


    Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia (TUDM) tidak menolak kemungkinan pesawat Malaysia Airlines (MAS), MH370 berpatah balik ke Lapangan Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) selepas dikesan dengan radar tentera.

    Jeneral Tan Sri Datuk Sri Rodzali Daud pada sidang media di Hotel Sama-Sama mendedahkan wujud isyarat MH370 cuba berpatah balik berdasarkan maklumat daripada radar TUDM.

    "Kami memiliki rakaman. Kami mendapati terdapat kemungkinan pesawat cuba berpatah balik," kat Rodzali hari ini.

    "Ia dikesan dalam radar, kami lihat semula rakaman dan terdapat isyarat kemungkinan pesawat tersebut cuba berpatah balik...kami sedang selidik perkara ini.

    "Ia diperoleh daripada radar tentera," katanya.

    Menurut Rodzali, mereka cuba melakukan siasatan lebih mendalam bagi mendapatkan kepastian cubaan berpatah balik dan akan bekerjasama dengan agensi antarabangsa.

    "Kami cuba bekerjasama dengan radar awam dan agensi antarabangsa untuk mendapatkan gambaran lebih jelas mengenai perkara ini," kata beliau.

    Bagaimanapun, jarak sebenar MH370 yang berpatah balik tidak dapat disahkan lagi.
    Sementara itu, Ketua Eksekutif MAS, Ahmad Jauhari Yahya berkata dengan pendedahan tersebut menambah persoalan memandangkan MH370 tidak pernah membuat sebarang panggilan kecemasan ke menara kawalan trafik udara.

    "Biasanya apabila terdapat cubaan patah balik, bermakna pilot gagal untuk meneruskan rancangan asal.
    "Biasanya selepas keputusan dibuat, ia akan direport ke ATC (menara kawalan trafik udara), tapi daripada maklumat kami dapat, tidak terdapat panggilan kecemasan dan kami masih tertanya-tanya," kata Ahmad Jauhari.

    Selepas lebih 24 jam, pesawat MH370 yang hilang awal pagi semalam sehingga kini masih belum ditemui.
    Pesawat MH370 yang membawa 239 penumpang dari 14 negara temasuk 12 anak kapal, hilang daripada radar setelah berlepas dari KLIA pada pukul 12.41 pagi semalam dalam perjalanan menuju ke Beijing, China.

    Ia sepatutnya mendarat di Beijing pada jam 6.30 pagi. – 9 Mac, 2014.

    MAS berkata hari ini penerbangan MH370, perkongsian kod bersama China Southern Airlines, yang terputus hubungan komunikasi di Laut China Selatan, membawa 227 penumpang termasuk dua bayi dan 12 anak kapal.

    Syarikat penerbangan itu mengumumkan pasukan mencari dan menyelamat telah digerakkan untuk mengesan pesawat tersebut yang dilaporkan hilang semasa penerbangan dari Kuala Lumpur ke Beijing.

    Boeing dalam satu kenyataan dari Seattle berkata ia menubuhkan satu pasukan untuk menyediakan bantuan teknikal kepada pihak berkuasa yang sedang menyiasat kehilangan pesawat tersebut.

    MH370 berlepas dari Kuala Lumpur pada pukul 12.41 pagi waktu tempatan dan dijadualkan mendarat di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Beijing pada pukul 6.30 pagi waktu tempatan.

    Pesawat yang hilang itu merupakan satu daripada 15 pesawat Boeing 777-200s MAS.
    Model 777 pertama, 777-200, memulakan operasi pada 1995 dengan United Airlines sebagai syarikat penerbangan pertama menggunakan perkhidmatannya.

    Sejak itu, empat model 777 tambahan telah dilancarkan termasuk model lebih panjang pada Februari 2000.

    Ihsan terpenting di saat ujian getir

    drhalimahali.blogspot.com - 7 March 2014 - 10:18pm
    Bukan mudah menanggung derita lebih-lebih yang melibatkan keluarga terdekat.
    Walau berat mata memandang, berat lagi bahu memikul.
    Orang lain yang sama ciri dengan kita tidak akan mungkin mampu menyelami perasaan kita.
    Justeru, sangat patutlah apabila kita diuji oleh Allah swt kita mendekati diri kepada Allah. Kita akan tenang sekiranya kita sedar dan yakin bahawa Allah sentiasa melihat kita, mendengar segala apa yang kita sebut, bahkan mengetahui apa yang tercetus dalam hati kita tapi tidak keluar dengan suara.
    Allah Maha Memahami situasi kita. Samada yang adil atau tidak.
    Kita kena rajin mendampinginya. Bersangka baik dengan peraturanNya. Sudah tentulah ada hikmah disebalik segala peristiwa. Walaupun hati kita memberontak. Istighfar dan mengadulah kepadaNya. Hanya Dia yang berkuasa atas segala galanya.
    Yakinlah........ini hanya dunia.......sementara.
    Kelak di sana yang kekal abadi.

    Kementerian Pendidikan Wajib Teliti Acuan Pembentukan Universiti Tempatan

    srimuda.blogspot.com - 6 March 2014 - 9:37am

    Kegagalan universiti di Malaysia menempatkan diri dalam senarai kedudukan Reputasi Pendidikan Tinggi Dunia Times yang dikeluarkan hari ini menunjukkan universiti tempatan bukan sahaja tidak layak disenaraikan universiti terbaik dunia tetapi di peringkat Asia Tenggara sendiri.Malaysia tidak pernah berada dalam senarai itu yang merupakan tahun keempat meskipun sasaran Putrajaya menjadikan Malaysia sebagai hab pendidikan serantau dan menarik 200,000 pelajar ke universiti tempatan menjelang 2020.Menteri Pendidikan Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin sebelum ini berkata, Malaysia mempunyai sistem pendidikan antara yang terbaik di dunia - lebih baik daripada Amerika Syarikat, Britain dan Jerman.
    Malaysia gagal berada dalam kedudukan universiti The World tahun lalu biarpun Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia (KPM) mendapat peruntukan terbesar dalam Bajet 2013. Kementerian itu menerima RM38.7 bilion pada 2013 dan akan menerima RM54 bilion pada tahun ini. - 6 Mac, 2014.Penasihat DAP, Lim Kit Siang merupakan salah seorang yang lantang mengkritik standard pendidikan Malaysia mengingatkan universiti tempatan bukan sahaja tidak diiktiraf sebagai universiti terbaik dunia tetapi juga tidak setanding dengan institusi pendidikan serantau.

    Selangor To Make Water MoU Public Next Week

    xavierjayakumar.blogspot.com - 5 March 2014 - 5:28pm
    SHAH ALAM: The Selangor government will make public the contents of the water agreement it signed with the federal government next week as promised, Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said today.
    Khalid said the Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Maximus Ongkili had agreed in principle for Selangor to make the memorandum public.
    He said the state had to undergo certain procedures as required under its Freedom of Information Act before the document could be released.
    He, however, declined to confirm the authenticity of a MoU document revealed by PKR strategist Rafizi Ramli yesterday, adding that the state did not approve the release of the said document.
    “We are only interested in releasing our own documents,” he said Khalid indirectly dismissed Rafizi’s claims that only a number of items in the MoU, such as the Langat II Water Treatment Plant, were irrevocable.

    “The decision has been made by the state, you (reporters) should read the whole document,” he told a press conference after the weekly executive council meeting.
    He said the signing of the MoU had nothing to do with his recent out-of-court settlement with Bank Islam on a shares dispute worth RM67 million.
    He also refused to name the PKR leader whom he had claimed might wish to alter the water deal if the person knew about the deal earlier.
    No water increase for three years
    Selangor inked the MoU with Putrajaya last Wednesday to allow the federal government to build the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plan in exchange for the state to take over four water concessionaires.
    The MoU marked the end of six years of intensive horse-trading between the two sides since Selangor announced its intention to restructure the state’s water industry and assets.
    Many Selangor PKR leaders, such as Rafizi and Anwar Ibrahim, were, however, kept in dark over the MoU and had since been questioning the deal.
    Khalid said last Saturday that the contents of the MoU was irrevocable and binding, as he had specifically asked for the word “irrevocable” to be written in there.
    Meanwhile, Khalid also announced that the federal and state governments had agreed to sign a yet-to-be-drafted agreement which would detail the plan of the water restructuring exercise.
    He said the proposed agreement would eleborate on issues such as future water tariffs and estimated revenue after the exercise.
    He added that the proposed agreement stated that there would be no increase in water tariff for the next three years.
