What You See vs. What Your Kids See [7 Pics]: Diana Adams@Bit Rebels

What You See vs. What Your Kids See [7 Pics]

03/30/2011 - 7:00 am By Diana Adams

If you are a parent, you have most likely smiled more than once while thinking about how your child views the world. Whether it’s looking up at a cloud and seeing an elephant, laughing because they hear Santa Claus on the roof, or crying because they see a monster under the bed, kids definitely live in a different world than adults.
And, who’s to say they are wrong? There are many days when I want to regress to that world, and to live that life of innocence and simplicity again. It’s a world where nothing is right or wrong, it just is. Up until now, I’ve always thought it is the vivid imagination of children that allows them to perceive things differently, but it turns out, there is more to it than that.
According to a study on New Science by Dr. Jim Stone at the University of Sheffield, UK, children really do see things differently. Apparently children do not see objects in a fully grown-up way until they are about 13 years old. There are many things that are learned about how we interpret what we see visually. You can read more about this study on New Scientist.
Jeff Wysaski knows all about how kids view things differently than adults. His adult vs. kid comparisons on pleated-jeans really made me laugh. It’s amazing how seeing pictures like this can bring back so many memories. If you would like to see the whole collection, go to What We See vs. What Kids See. Suddenly I have the urge to go jump on the bed.

The Spinning Dancer Illusion: The Spinning Dancer Explained & Depicted!

The Spinning Dancer is a popular optical illusion that even has its own wikipedia entry. The illusion is the following:

spinning dancer

The illusion was created by web designer Nobuyuki Kayahara and the question is "Which direction is the dancer spinning?" That is, is the dancer is spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise?

"If the foot touching the ground is perceived to be the left foot, the dancer appears to be spinning clockwise (if seen from above); if it is taken to be the right foot, then she appears to be spinning counterclockwise."

A nice graphic that illustrates how the dancer can be observed as spinning in either direction is below. By simplying adding some lines to the original image you you can give direction to the dancer. The left image shows the dancer spinning clockwise, while the right image shows the dancer spinning counter-clockwise.

Great white sharks in Neptune Bay South Australia attracted by AC/DC hits!

Great white sharks attracted by AC/DC hits

By:Angela Case | June-2-2011

A shark cage tour operator has found that great white sharks are attracted to music by Aussie band AC/DC.
SHARKS ENTHUSIASTS HAVE USED fish guts to attract great white sharks for years, but it seems the fearsome creatures may be attracted to something more pleasing to their ears: music from Australian rock band AC/DC.

Matt Waller, a tour operator in South Australia's Neptune Bay, has observed that when sharks hear the band's hits, especially Shook Me All Night Long and Back in Black, they are drawn to the source of the music.

Matt's research was inspired by dive operators on Guadalupe Island, who discovered playing music underwater for clients also caused changes in shark behaviour. He and his company, Adventure Bay Charters, decided to do some experimenting of their own.

Using underwater speakers attached to diving cages, they pumped Australian rock hits through the water. Most of Matt's tunes had no effect, but when the great whites heard the AC/DC songs, they swam up and rubbed their faces against the source of the music.  

Headbanging attraction

Matt acknowledges he is no expert on the minds of sharks and doesn't know exactly why they find the '80s rock band's music so appealing.

"Sharks don't have ears, they don't have long hair, and they don't head bang past the cage doing the air guitar," he told Australian Geographic.

The sharks are probably drawn to the low frequencies found in AC/DC's music, and Matt wants to test out this theory. "Once we've got a range of songs, we can electronically identify a common characteristic between those songs," he says.

Led Zeppelin is next on Matt's playlist, but his children are convinced that the sharks will be fans of the White Stripes and Wolfmother.

Matt's findings could help cage-diving operations become more environmentally sustainable by reducing the amount of berley used on tours. He says Adventure Bay Charters is currently the only company in the world that uses music, not bait, to attract sharks, but predicts other operators will soon follow his lead.

Boeing jet crashes in Guyana: No death ‘miracle’ - 'I was praying to Jesus'.

July 31, 2011

GEORGETOWN, July 31 — A packed Caribbean Airlines jet carrying 163 people crashed and broke in two yesterday as it landed in Guyana at night, injuring dozens of passengers but killing no one.
The Boeing 737-800 overshot the runway and burst through a perimeter fence after arriving at Georgetown’s Cheddi Jagan airport just past midnight from New York. The front of the plane snapped off and it stopped meters from a jungle ravine.
No fire appears to have broken out on the jet.
“It’s an absolute miracle what happened here in Georgetown,” said Caribbean Airlines chairman George Nicholas, who visited the crash site.
Passengers screamed when the plane lost control and many fled down emergency inflatable slides when it finally came to a stop, a local newspaper reported.
“It was terror,” a woman passenger whose husband opened the exit door told the newspaper Kaieteur News. “I was praying to Jesus.”
Flight BW 523 was carrying 157 passengers and six crew. The Trinidad and Tobago-based Caribbean Airlines said it did not know the cause of the accident. Investigators from the United States and Guyana were sent to retrieve the black box.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that 12 Canadians were on the flight, and one was slightly injured.
Trinidad and Tobago’s transport minister said four people were hospitalised with serious injuries. One passenger suffered a broken leg, an airline spokeswoman said, and others reported neck and back injuries.
“We are very, very thankful and grateful that there are no deaths,” Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo said at the airport.
A photo published by local newspaper Stabroek News showed a Caribbean Airlines plane with the half its fuselage broken off and resting in thick undergrowth.
The summer months are a busy travel period in Guyana as many citizens who live overseas return for vacations. The airport closed for several hours after the crash but reopened by midday.
Boeing’s 737-800 model was introduced in 1996 and has previously suffered eight serious crashes causing a total of 525 deaths, according to the Flight Safety Foundation. — Reuters

Say goodbye to the typewriter, 1867-2011 - Typewriter is becoming history!

Say goodbye to the typewriter, 1867-2011
If you ever thought it might be fun to own an old style typewriter, you need to move fast. The last typewriter factory in the world has stopped making new ones, and they have only 500 left in stock.
The Godrej and Boyce factory in Mumbai India actually stopped making them in 2009, and have been selling from inventory since then. Twenty years ago they would sell 50,000 per year, but recently the number has been more like 800.
While the typewriter is obviously a victim of computers and word processors, I'm surprised they don't have more of an underground following like vinyl turntables.
I have a bit of a soft spot for the clickity-clack of the manual typewriter, having gone through my college days doing all my work on my Dad's old 1950s Olympia manual (I guess that dates me too). I must admit however that I haven't dusted it off in decades, so I guess its time has come.

E Garden @ SS2 Mall: Tasty & healthy nasi lemak brown rice set lunch! 8D

The nasi lemak was really good - tasty and healty.

For those who love to eat nasi lemak and are health conscious, this dish is a must.

Other restaurants usually offer RM9.90 for set lunch with OILY nasi lemak and a drink.

Though the Set Lunch Special comes without a drink at RM9.90 here in E Garden, the organic meal is certainly much tastier and healthier than the normal nasi lemak.

And you only need to add RM1.00 for a drink!

Money worth spending for a tasty and healthy meal!

Why after nearly 48 years as a nation, Malaysia still must have racial quotas?

Why NO 7% discount for non-Malays who want to buy house?

Why NO non-Malays holding top positions in the civil service?

There are many more 'Why NOs' that we can list out!

So, what has MCA dog been doing for the Chinese?

They looked on baffled as the moose tried to dip his hooves in his drinking trough - before trying to dunk his entire head in the water. But they were amazed when they saw 12-foot-tall Shooter lift his head out of the water - clutching a tiny marmot - a large ground squirrel - between his jaws. They looked on as Shooter gently nudged the rodent with his hoof, to make sure it was alive - before calmly watching it run off into the bushes.

PSM 6 released after 28 days in detention without grounds, charge and trial

Gerakan: Charge, if not release 6 PSM detainees

KUALA LUMPUR: The Gerakan has called on the government to release the six members of Parti Sosialis Malaysia detainees if no offences have been committed by them.
Gerakan deputy president Datuk Chang Ko Youn said on Monday, July 18 that if the six had indeed committed offences, then they should be charged without delay.
“The continued detention and the uncertainty surrounding the whole episode will undermine the image of the government in the eyes of the world.
“The country upholds the Rule of Law and protection of fundamental human rights where anyone detained must be informed of  the grounds of detention and shall be charged promptly if there are sufficient evidence to charge the person,” he said.
Chang, who is also Gerakan human rights and law bureau chief, said by keeping the people guessing without any satisfactory public explanation does not augur well for Malaysia's record in human rights protection.
“Waging an ideological campaign without the use of force or violence is not a heinous crime and shall not be treated as criminal.  Thus a public statement on the circumstances leading to the arrest and detention of the six PSM detainees shall be made forthwith,” he said.

Today @ Malaysiakini:
PSM 6 released after 28 days in detention
The Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) 6 have been released today after they were detained since July 2 for undefined charges during the Bersih 2.0 crackdown.

azlanIt is understood that the six PSM members - Choo Chon Kai, Sarat Babu, M Sarasvathy, M Sukumaran, A Letchumanan and Sungai Siput parliamentarian Dr Jeyakumar Devaraj - were released at 5.30pm at the Jinjang police station, following public outrage and sustained protests over their arbitrary detention.

Jeyakumar's vow to go on a hunger strike until the PSM 6 were released also put additional pressure on the police.

They were initially detained on suspicion of planning to wage war against the King but it was learnt that the charge was changed several times, at one point accusing them of being ringleaders of the Bersih 2.0 rally on July 9.

In a two-paragraph statement. issued to the media, inspector-general of police Ismail Omar confirmed the release of the six from detention under the Emergency Ordinance and said, “Following their release, further action will be determined by the attorney-general's chambers.”

Chan Lilian, I know but who is Tony Yew? You gormless so-called Christian

In his police report against Chan Lilian, Tony Yew alleged that Chan's tweet contained seditious elements, which directly incited Christians to go against the government for alleged persecution and as a citizen who also professes the Christian faith, he was of the opinion that the action of the individual behind this twitter ID had the ability to threaten the security of the nation. This was followed by a blog post titled 'Don't push it', where Yew lamented that he had seen Chan's tweet being retweeted and was disappointed that there were people out there happy to spread the word. Yew had asked in his blog, "What more if you work for a chief minister? Should we, the rest of us who want to move forward just stand by on the side and hope that the best prevail?"

I bet Tony Yew has not lodged a single police report against Ibrahim Ali who, as a Member of Parliament and an elected individual representing all Malaysians, had incited racial hatred many times!

As a concerned citizen of Malaysia, Tony should lodge a police report against Ibrahim and all the more so if he professes the Christian faith.

Isn't inciting one party against another party EVIL?!

Teoh’s death: ‘Four new leads for police’. RCI labelled MACC men as liars!

Teoh’s death: ‘Four new leads for police’

Teoh El Sen | July 27, 2011
DAP adviser says among other offences, MACC officers should be investigated and charged with perjury based on fresh leads gathered from the RCI report.
PETALING JAYA: DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang yesterday urged police to re-open investigations into the death of former political aide Teoh Beng Hock based on four new “leads” that the recently released Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) report revealed.
Lim, the Ipoh Timor MP, said police should be investigating Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officers for perjury based on the report’s finding that named most of the
MACC officers as “liars”.
“Apart from two brave and truthful souls from Selangor MACC – Azeem Hafeez Jamaluddin and Azian Umar – the report virtually dismissed the rest as a pack of liars led by (then Selangor MACC deputy director) Hishamuddin Hashim, the “mastermind” of the massive and unjustified operation which resulted in Teoh’s death,” he said.
(Azian and Azeem were lauded as brave in the report as their testimony had supported the finding that MACC officers had been instructed to lie by their superiors.)
Lim said the report’s “most scathing… indictment of the character and testimony” of the officers is “fertile source for the formulation of multiple perjury charges against Hishamuddin and other MACC officers in giving false testimony at the RCI”. Under Section 193 of the Penal Code, this provides for a maximum sentence of seven years jail and fine on conviction.
Lim, speaking at the “Teoh Beng Hock Royal Commission Inquiry Report – Where is the promised truth?” forum last night, challenged Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail to arrest and charge Hishamuddin based on the following paragraph in the report:
“The evidence adduced showed that the MACC officers were prepared to go to great lengths to lie. One glaring example is that of Hishamuddin, a very senior officer, who was overall in charge of
operations on that fateful 15th evening and spilling over into the early hours of the morning of the16th. In testimony before us, he was adamant in his stand that he had no knowledge whatsoever that complaints of assault and use of force had been lodged against the officers under his charge with the police. However, his lie was exposed with startling clarity when DSP Kamaruddin Ismail from the Selangor police produced a letter written by Hishamuddin himself in 2008 responding to police inquiries in relation to the complaints of assault and related abuses of power that had been lodged against MACC officers under his command.”
Lim said that based on this paragraph alone, a charge could be framed against Hishamuddin.
‘A pack of liars
He added that the RCI could not have been more condemnatory of Mohd Anuar Ismail, who was appointed investigating officer of the operation by Hishamuddin.
Lim quoted another paragraph from the report, which said:“Anuar lied about the role he played in order to cover up for HH. And on top of these factors, he was a trusted senior officer of Hishamuddin who was prepared to sacrifice himself for Hishamuddin…”
Calling MACC Selangor officers “a pack of liars” (apart from Azeem and Azian), Lim said the RCI report findings meant that “they had lied all the way from the initial police investigations into Teoh’s death to the inquest and the RCI about what happened to Teoh on the fateful days of July 15 and 16, 2009″.
“This means their earlier statements given were untrue, worthless and must be rejected – justifying a re-opening of police investigations into Teoh’s death,” said Lim.
He added that the “second lead” he had for the police was the revelation of a new “fourth interrogation” that the RCI postulated had happened to Teoh between 3.30am and 7am that day and which had “propelled Teoh to commit suicide”.
“Police investigations into Teoh’s death never knew about this ‘fourth interrogation’… in fact, police should also investigate whether there was a ‘fifth’ interrogation between 7am and 11 am,” Lim said.
He also said that the report had fingered Hishamuddin as the “mastermind” in the “host of criminalities and breaches of the law in the massive operation resulting in Teoh’s death”.
“Hishamuddin blatantly abused his powers when he launched the massive 33-officer operation which resulted in Teoh’s death ‘solely on a mere belief and without supporting facts’ and based on a ‘mere’ telephone call,” Lim said.
‘Black blog’
He quoted another paragraph in the report, which read: “We found him (Hishamuddin) to be arrogant, given to falsehoods, untruthful and uncompromising in his stand. His falsehoods, particularly of his non-active involvement in the entire operation at the material time, were exposed from the contradictory statements he made before us…”
Lim said based on this third lead, the police should find out who gave Hishamuddin such a sense of immunity and impunity.
Meanwhile, he also urged the police to investigate a blog which surfaced after Teoh’s death, blaming DAP for his death.
Calling it the “black blog”, he said that the website was most probably the work of the people “responsible of killing him”.
Lim said the blog had the “finger prints of MACC” as it contained documents related to Teoh investigations, which are only in the possession of MACC.
“Police investigation into who was behind the ‘black blog’ would probably have found Teoh’s killers as well.”
Teoh, 30, was found dead on July 16, 2009, on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam after being questioned overnight by MACC officers at their then-Selangor headquarters on the 14th floor.
Teoh was a witness in the MACC’s investigations into alleged misuse of state funds by his former boss, Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah. MACC had later cleared Ean Yong of any offences, citing insufficient evidence.
An inquest was called but it returned an open verdict. Subsequently, the RCI was formed, which recently released its report. The RCI had unanimously found that Teoh was driven to suicide after
coming under aggressive and continuous questioning from MACC officers.
Three MACC officers in charge of interrogating Teoh – Hishamuddin, Anuar, and Mohd Ashraf Mohd Yunus – are under investigation and have been suspended. However, the MACC said yesterday that other officers would not be penalised.

Based on the RCI report, we can conclude that lying is alive and well in the culture of MACC!

If PDRM takes no action, then condoning lies is alive and well in the culture of PDRM!

Morale of MACC staff not hit by officers’ suspension. MACC no conscience!

Morale of MACC staff not hit by officers’ suspension

July 28, 2011
PORT DICKSON, July 28 – MACC deputy commissioner (management and professionalism) Datuk Zakaria Jaafar said the suspension of three MACC officers from their duties in relation to the late Teoh Beng Hock case, will not affect the morale of the other officers and staff of the commission.
He said the MACC officers treated such matters as challenges.
“We train our officers to handle challenges, in fact they become more resilient, disciplined and efficent in their work,” he told the media after closing a basic training course for MACC officers here today.
He was commenting on the suspension of the three MACC officers and the special task force set up to investigate allegations they carried out aggressive questioning which drove the late Teoh to suicide.
A total of 57 MACC contract officers completed their training today and would be made permanent staff if they achieve the required perfomance and commitment after two years of service.
Teoh, 30, political secretary to a Selangor state executive councillor, was found dead on July 16, 2009, on the fifth floor corridor of Plaza Masalam in Shah Alam, Selangor, after giving a statement at the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office on the 14th floor of the same building.
A Royal Commission of Inquiry into his death, in its report released on July 21, determined that Teoh committed suicide after being put under duress by three MACC officers who handled his interrogation.
The RCI recommended that action be taken against the three officers. They have since been suspended pending further investigation.

Does MACC have anymore conscience as an organisation?

Obviously, not.

That's why the morale of MACC is still intact!

MIC chief calls for release of PSM 6. First time an MP detained under EO! x(

The continued detention of the six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) leaders is attracting unnecessary "worldwide attention", MIC president G Palanivel said today, and expressed concern that the detention might also impact BN in the coming general election.

Palanivel (right) said, "If you (watch) (news) on the television daily, there are massive demonstrations (in other countries and the) police will use tear gas, water cannons and all others (to disperse the crowd). But then, they will line them up, load them in trucks and take them to the police station (where the protesters will be) kept for three or four hours and then released.."
However, in the case of Sungai Siput MP Dr D Jeyakumar and the five others, who are being held behind bars for being the key "movers" of the Bersih 2.0 rally on July 9, Palanivel said this was only creating a more damaging image for the country and he added, saying, "The elected representatives will stay there (in detention) and (during) a general election, they don't have to leave (the cells to campaign) - they can (continue) to stay in prison and win, for the people will vote blindly."

Even before Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein declared Bersih 2.0 an illegal organisation, the PSM 6 have been held by police since June 30.

Why RCI conluded Teoh driven to suicide when report didn't conclude so?!

ANALYSIS One of the main evidence used by the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to back its controversial conclusion that DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock had committed suicide was the psychiatric report submitted by psychiatrist Paul Edward Mullen.

A close look at the 11-page report submitted to the inquiry by Mullen - the emeritus professor of forensic psychiatry from Monash University hired by the Bar Council - found more factors pointing to Teoh not having committed suicide than otherwise.

This, however, seemed to have been overlooked and ignored by the RCI.

NONEIn his suicide risk assessment, Mullen classified Teoh as being firmly in the "lowest-risk group" when he was taken into Malaysia Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) custody and did not conclude that Teoh had committed suicide, describing the DAP political aide as lacking all the factors usually shared among those liable to killing themselves.

Mullen wrote that he found Teoh had a regular employment, a partner whom he was soon to marry, had close family ties, a range of friends and colleagues, had not suffered a recent bereavement, and had no known financial problems - these are all social factors decreasing the risk of suicide.
Moreover, Teoh was in early adult life (25-40 years), had no history of suicide attempts or self harm, did not gamble excessively, and had no family history of suicide - hence, making suicide less likely.

Mullen said Teoh showed no evidence for a lowered mood, let alone depression, prior to being taken into custody, in fact, he appeared to have been more elated than usual because of the prospect of marriage and fatherhood.

Defamation suit: Can Anwar defend himself in an 'Umno-sponsored' court?!

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein - who is suing Anwar for defamation on statements Anwar made about the sex tape allegedly depicting him, which the opposition leader has denied - today sought to strike out certain paragraphs of Anwar Ibrahim's defence in the sex video tape suit the minister had filed.

NONEHishammuddin's application was relayed to the High Court in Kuala Lumpur by the minister's lawyer, Sunil Abraham while Lawyer J Leela appeared for Anwar, who has already filed his counter-claim and Justice VT Singham fixed Aug 26 for the case management to continue.
Hishammuddin, 50, in his suit claimed Anwar's words meant he was responsible for screening the video to a group of editors and journalists at Carcosa Seri Negara hotel on March 21. The words also meant that he arranged for the screening of the video and plotted with the prime minister and the police top brass to have it done.

Jeff Ooi: You have blood on your hands, Putrajaya. Hell is waiting for you! ;)

A candlelight vigil to commemorate the death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock in Penang last night turned into a royal commission of inquiry (RCI)-bashing session with Jelutong MP Jeff Ooi storming, “You have blood on your hands, Putrajaya. Hell is waiting for you!”

Ooi added that he could continue swearing but would prefer to fight this battle according to the law.

NONEHeld at the speakers square at the Esplanade, the party's stalwarts spewed much venom on the recently released RCI report which declared that Teoh, under interrogation over allegations of corruption, had committed suicide in 2009.

Ooi (left in photo) went as far as saying that Teoh's “murderers” are still on the loose and that party members have much anger to express over the matter but chose to remain civilised about it and laid the blame squarely on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's administration, saying that it is during his tenure that several tragedies like Teoh's death have occurred, referring to another death at another Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) premises involving customs officer Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamad, who was arrested as part of a nationwide crackdown against errant customs officers allegedly guilty of receiving bribes.

Ambiga dedicates UK doctorate to Baharuddin, PSM 6. Bersih=1Malaysia!

July 23, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, July 23 — Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan has dedicated her honorary law doctorate to the late Baharuddin Ahmad and the six Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) leaders now held under the Emergency Ordinance.
The Bersih 2.0 chairman also dedicated the award, conferred by her alma mater, the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, to the “brave people of Malaysia” whom she said had overcome “fear of intimidation and harassment” when they dared to march with her on July 9.
Ambiga advised graduating law students to use their knowledge to fight injustices. — File pic
“The real heroes of that day are our friend and supporter Allahyarham Baharuddin Ahmad who paid the ultimate price in fighting a noble cause, the six members of the Socialist Party of Malaysia who, as we speak, sit in solitary confinement under preventive detention laws and finally the brave people of Malaysia who overcame their fear of intimidation and harassment to uphold their fundamental rights. “With all my heart, I dedicate this honour you have bestowed upon me to them,” she said in her university acceptance speech received here today.
She touched briefly on the events of July 9 but did not lash out at the Najib administration, choosing instead to honour Bersih 2.0 supporters and advise graduating law students to use their knowledge to fight injustices.
“You have already heard of the events of July 9 in Malaysia. Whilst it brought out the worst in some, it brought out the best in others and this is where our hope lies,” she said.
The former Bar Council president has been the target of much criticism of late, with many anti-Bersih 2.0 parties calling for her head over the chaos that took place on July 9.
Even Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has been generously doling out accusations against Ambiga and her Bersih 2.0 movement, claiming the rally was an attempt to oust him from government.
Ambiga, however, highlighted in her speech that not all of Najib’s men were happy with how the administration had clamped down on the rally.
“There were some in government who opposed the methods used to shut us down,” she said. “Even doctors left their comfort zones to speak up against injustices. And of course there were the lawyers and the independent media who stood on the side of truth and justice.”
Ambiga also spoke on the “rule of law”, saying that Malaysia’s democracy was still being held back by repressive laws, turning it into a country that practises “rule by law”.
She cited the example of preventive detention laws that “lock people away without affording them the basic right to a trial”, likely referring to the Emergency Ordinance and the Internal Security Act (ISA).
Ambiga told graduating students that in their quest to uphold the rule of law and pursuit of profit, they should also be reminded of their role to fight injustices.
“You are now a proud member of an army of people that is equipped with all that is necessary to both practise law and to fight injustice. I urge you to use this arsenal of knowledge and your passion for justice to fight for those who are downtrodden,” she said.
“Who better to remind those in power of their responsibilities to their citizens than lawyers trained in understanding the difference between ‘Rule of Law’ and ‘Rule by Law’?”
Ambiga pointed out that with the technological advancements in today’s world, any injustice is quickly communicated across the globe through social media tools and the Internet.
By using this, she said, individuals could stay connected and offer aid to one another easily.
“We can reach out to each other using these new means of communication and we owe it to each other to stand together for what is right,” she said.
The Bersih 2.0 rally has made a major splash among the Internet community, with thousands of Malaysians sharing their experiences via social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Thousands have also resorted to recording their disdain for the Najib administration online, resulting in numerous Facebook fan pages being set up to call for the prime minister and his Cabinet’s resignation.

I SAY MACC officers had the evil intention to cause Teoh to commit suicide

When the report of the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) into the death of Teoh Beng Hock was unveiled at a press conference yesterday by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Mohd Nazri Aziz, who read out from a written statement and said that the commission found Teoh's "weak character" as one of the factors leading to his suicide.

Nazri said paragraphs 229 and 233 of the Malay version of the report as part of the paragraphs that led to the written statement 

When translated from the Malay language to the  English language, it states: "The outcome of the commission's investigation found that Teoh was not murdered but he felt pressured and stressed due to continuous and aggressive interrogation sessions, strengthened by his weak character which caused him to commit suicide."

(Hasil siasatan Suruhanjaya mendapati bahawa TBH bukan dibunuh tetapi beliau yang merasa terbeban and tertekan dengan sesi soal siasat yang agresif dan berlarutan, disokong dengan perwatakan beliau yang lemah telah menyebabkan beliau membunuh diri.)

Asked about the conflict between his statement and the RCI report, Nazri explained to Malaysiakini that his officers who prepared the statement drew the inference from various paragraphs in the report to come to the "weak character" conclusion.
However, a check by Malaysiakini showed that the "weak character" remark is not mentioned in the 124-page RCI report.

This is how the gormless government drew the inference.
What if I drew an inference that the MACC officers had the evil intention to break Teoh down to the  point that he would be in a suicidal state of mind?

PETALING JAYA, July 23 — Dissatisfied with the ongoing inquest into the death Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamed, the Customs officer’s family today again demanded for a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) into his untimely demise during a graft investigation. The family previously asked for an RCI to be convened immediately, but later relented to the inquest after Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk VK Liew said that it was the first choice, and that there was a “procedure” which needed to be followed.
Today, Sarbaini’s widow Maziah Manap also asked for a fresh investigation over a remark made by Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) officer Abdul Ghani Ali about those responsible for her husband’s death on April 6.

“Until now the police did not record my statement regarding Encik Ghani’s remark, ‘it wasn’t me, it was my people’, [made] to me when I expressed dissatisfaction of my husband’s death,” she said in the report lodged at the Kelana Jaya police station hear her house. Abdul Ghani is a MACC investigating officer and the 18th witness to be called in the ongoing inquest into Ahmad Sarbaini’s death.
He had defended his statement and told the coroner’s court that he meant Ahmad Sarbaini had went to see his officers, not him personally, on the day of his death.
Ahmad Sarbaini, the Selangor Customs assistant director, was found dead on April 6 after he was believed to have fallen from the pantry on the third floor of the MACC Kuala Lumpur office on Jalan Cochrane here and landed on a badminton court on the first floor.
The most recent outcome from the inquest was a forensic investigator’s conclusion that Ahmad Sarbaini did not jump to his death nor was he pushed from the KL anti-graft office.
“I am very confident that my husband did not commit suicide but there is foul play in his death based on RPK’s blog and Encik Ghani’s statement,” Maziah stated in her report today.
“RPK” are the initials of Raja Petra Kamarudin, the blogger who alleged on the Malaysia Today website that Ahmad Sarbaini accidentally fell to his death after being forced onto the ledge by a senior MACC investigator.
He further claimed that the MACC investigator convened a “conference” with his colleagues to “brainstorm and concoct the most plausible story” to protect their careers.
Up till today, Raja Petra (left) has written a nine-part series on Malaysia Today alleging that Ahmad Sarbaini death was caused by the anti-graft body’s officers.
“I demand the police to investigate again my husband’s case because Raja Petra’s articles are parallel with (what was said in the coroner’s court),” she told reporters.
Mokhtar Mansor, 53, cousin-in-law to Ahmad Sarbaini, and a former senior deputy public prosecutor, told reporters that the family’s hopes were getting dimmer especially since the findings of the Teoh Beng Hock RCI were made public.
“RCI is much better because the officers will not be under the purview or under the influence of the Attorney General, hopefully we have that.
“At least for Teoh Beng Hock, to some extent, he was given that benefit,” he said.
When asked if the family would want to continue with the inquest, he said they “still believe in the government, believe in the system”, so they will go on with it.
Also present today was Ghazali Mohd Ramli, Maziah’s brother-in-law, who is also the family lawyer, Awtar Singh’s firm partner, as well as Ahmad Sarbaini’s siblings.

SEPANG, July 22 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak confirmed today that he had briefed his British counterpart David Cameron on the Bersih rally and its real intentions during his official visit to the United Kingdom last week. He shared the news upon arrival this morning at KL International Airport after a three-country working visit abroad.
The prime minister was quoted by national news agency, Bernama, as saying that he had told Cameron there is room for dissent in the country to allow Malaysians to express any dissatisfaction that they may have yet at the same time, it was imperative that public order is maintained.
He also shared with Cameron the fact that the government had offered a stadium to Bersih which the electoral reform group had rejected because their preferred venue was Stadium Merdeka, he continued.
Najib went on to say he had informed the British prime minister that the demonstrators had intentionally provoked the police.
Once the police acted against them, the demonstrators took photos and posted them on YouTube, citing police brutality, Najib was quoted by Bernama as saying.
Cameron was also briefed that Bersih’s real aim was not to press for electoral reform as professed but rather to portray the Malaysian government in an autocratic light in order to wrest power from an elected entity.
The prime minister ended by saying that he had stressed the Malaysian government always upholds the principles of democracy and has never cheated in a general election because those held in Malaysia are free from fraudulent practices.

Najib no right to tell others to respect Islam. As a leader, respect others first

UPDATED @ 12:35:17 PM 22-07-2011

I'm sure Najib is very familiar with the phrase 'Respect is earned'. Can Najib tell us what to do unless he himself is respecting the rights of other people?

Can Najib, first of all, respect the Christians' (read: Catholics') right to use 'Allah' in their own internal publication?

Suruhanjaya: Hishammuddin Hashim ANGKUH, memberi maklumat palsu!

July 21, 2011
KUALA LUMPUR, 21 Julai — Seorang pegawai kanan SPRM Selangor telah melancarkan operasi skala besar-besaran untuk menyiasat satu dakwaan salah guna dan hanya berdasarkan kepercayaan seorang pemberi maklumat, tanpa fakta-fakta sokongan, demikian menurut suruhanjaya diraja yang menyiasat kematian Teoh Beng Hock.
Dalam laporannya, suruhanjaya mendapati Hishammuddin Hashim (HH), pengarah SPRM Selangor ketika itu, terlibat dalam operasi rasuah terhadap seorang Adun DAP, yang membawa kepada kematian Teoh, yang didapati membunuh diri.
“Tiada bukti langsung yang boleh membuktikan bahawa HH ada sentuhan dalam kematian TBH (Teoh Beng Hock).
“Bagaimanapun sebagai seorang pegawai paling kanan yang terlibat dalam operasi, beliau harus bertanggungjawab ke atas tindakan yang diambil olehnya dan pegawai-pegawainya, yang membawa kepada TBH, dengan membunuh diri,” kata suruhanjaya ini lagi.
Dalam laporannya tambah suruhanjaya, pihaknya mendapati Hishammuddin sangat angkuh dan memberi maklumat tidak benar selain sikapnya yang tidak boleh berkompromi.
Suruhanjaya juga berkata Hishammuddin secara berterusan menafikan pembabitan aktifnya dalam operasi ketika kejadian.
Panel suruhanjaya berkata pihaknya mengetahui keadaan sebenar apabila dua pegawai Hishammuddin memaklumkan bahawa bekas pengarah SPRM Selangor itu yang mengeluarkan segala perintah dan mengarahkan pegawai-pegawainya siapa dan bagaimana perlu disoal siasat.
Hishammuddin kini merupakan pengarah SPRM Negeri Sembilan.
