KUALA LUMPUR: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was sworn in as Permatang Pauh MP at 10.05am Thursday in a brief ceremony in Dewan Rakyat here. Anwar, who turned up for the event in a simple black baju melayu, was accompanied by his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and their daughter Nurul Izzah. The moment he entered the Dewan, he was instantly surrounded by other Pakatan Rakyat members, including Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang and PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang. However, only three ministers were present in the House for the swearing-in. The swearing-in took place in front of Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia. After the swearing-in, Anwar took his place on the first seat on the Opposition block.
Parliament…. Here I come!

Malaysia Today blocked! Order from MCMC

Andrew Ong | Aug 27, 08 5:29pm Malaysiakini
In a rare move, Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has ordered all internet service providers (ISPs) to block controversial online portal Malaysia Today. MCPXMCMC chief operating officer Mohamed Sharil Tarmizi, when contacted today, confirmed that the block was ordered by the commission, which is the regulatory body for online content. “It is being blocked because we found that some of the comments on the website were insensitive, bordering on incitement,” he told Malaysiakini. As at 7pm, a check by Malaysiakini showed users are unable to access Malaysia Today through three major ISPs - TMnet, Maxis and Time. However, users can still access the errant website through Jaring.
Bye-Bye BN

Ok, bye-bye BN... Slowly the opposition will take over the bloody govt.. Do not cover up the ppl with your screwed media..
Mahathir: Meaning of Merdeka is lost

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he would celebrate Merdeka day this year but it would not be the same as how he celebrated it for the past 50 years. "Something is lost from the meaning of independence. Mouths are shut and what is in the heart cannot be expressed. We are afraid to say anything because the police will be urged to act.
"Sometimes I feel like we are already in a police state, but maybe this is just an overreaction," he added. "I believe we still value our freedom, our independence. But something has happened to make us feel unhappy on the anniversary of our independence. We regret that we are unable to do anything to bring back the joy of an independent race. "But the leaders must understand why the people feel sad this year. Don't fool yourself by saying that it is not true that the people are not happy, just look at how many people came out to watch the fireworks. Unfortunately, this (watching fireworks) is not the benchmark. In his latest blog posting, Mahathir argued that the gloomy feeling could be related to the hike in petrol prices and other essential items. But, he also noted that something was not right, and this has robbed the people of the joy in celebrating the 51st anniversary of the nation's independence on Aug 31. To illustrate his point, the former premier cited the 'fly the flag upside down' campaign initiated by blogger Sheih Kickdefella to protest the greed of political leaders from both sides of the divide. Such a suggestion was never made during the past 50 years since the country achieved independence, he said.

Carnival theme closes Olympics in Beijing

With a carnival-themed extravaganza, China concluded its debut as Olympic host Sunday after 16 days of nearly flawless logistics and superlative athletic achievement that coexisted awkwardly with the government's wariness of dissent and free speech. To a large extent, the emergent superpower got what it had sought from the Games: a dominant effort by its athletes to top the gold-medal standings for the first time and almost glitch-free organizing that showcased world-class arenas and cheerful volunteers for the largest-ever peaceful influx of foreign visitors. As a bonus, two athletes gave what might be among the greatest performances in Olympic history - Michael Phelps with his eight gold medals in swimming, Jamaica's ebullient Usain Bolt with three golds and three world records in the sprints.
Yet another racial slur? Pariah!

For those who does not know the meaning of ‘pariah’, here it is:
The word pariah, which can be used for anyone who is a social outcast, independent of social position, recalls a much more rigid social system, which made only certain people pariahs. The caste system of India placed pariahs, also known as Untouchables, very low in society. The word pariah, which we have extended in meaning, came into English from Tamil paaiyar, the plural of paaiyan, the caste name, which literally means “(hereditary) drummer” and comes from the word paai, the name of a drum used at certain festivals. The word is first recorded in English in 1613. Its use in English and its extension in meaning probably owe much to the long period of British rule in India.

Avril Lavinge concert is ON!
THE CONCERT IS ON - the organisers of the Avril Lavinge gig finally got the permit from the ministry just an hour ago. The appeal was accepted by the ministry officials. Common sense has finally prevailed, I am told the intervention came from someone really high up, who thought this dilly-dally was a lot of nonsense. Hint - the Cabinet met today. The consensus, I am told, was that no one should give in to the PAS mullahs. The voices of the liberals and moderates must always be louder than the extremists. Other ministers also expressed support for the concert. But this simple application for a concert should have just been accepted and approved without having to get the higher-ups involved, surely they have more pressing issues to handle. But what a right thing has to be done. See you at the concert!
Avril Lavigne concert cancelled

Malaysia on Tuesday canceled a concert by Canadian rock singer Avril Lavigne, saying it may taint the Muslim-majority country’s independence day celebrations after the Islamic opposition (PAS) slammed her show as being “too sexy.”

Snoop Dogg makes Bollywood debut

US rapper Snoop Dogg has made his debut in a Bollywood film which is being released on Friday. Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus, sings and acts in a romantic comedy called Singh is Kinng. Fusing hip hop and bhangra, Dogg appears in the film with leading Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, singing the eponymous title track. The song has already made it to the top of the Bollywood music charts and is a hit at Indian nightclubs. The producer of the film, Vipul Shah, told the BBC that Akshay Kumar, the star of the film, and his friends approached Dogg to sing and act in the $11m film. "When Dogg was satisfied with the scale of the film, he agreed to be a part of it. The song was filmed with his sensibility and he had creative control," he said. Mr Shah said the song cost $475,000 to record and film.


Wearing a tradition Indian turban and a tunic, Dogg and Akshay Kumar were filmed for the song in Chicago. In the track, Dogg sings: "This is Snoop Dogg/Singh is the king/This is the thing." The words in the song are a combination of English, Hindi and Punjabi language lyrics and rap. Dogg pictured with Akshay Kumar in the film

The rapper's introduction to the song gives an indication.

He says: "Yo, what up. This Big Snoop Dogg. Represent the Punjabi. Aye ya, hit em with this." Last year, Dogg was honoured at the fourth annual VH1 hip-hop awards show in New York for his musical achievements. He was also arrested at Bob Hope Airport in California on suspicion of carrying marijuana. Dogg was later charged with gun possession after police found a firearm at his home. The rapper pleaded no contest to gun and drugs charges and received five years probation and 800 hours community service.

Snoop Dogg says he now plans to tour India.

"Snoop Dogg has a lot of fans in India and I love 'em right back," he said. "Get ready for me."
Babies born 8/8/08 at 8:08; 8 pounds, 8 ounces
NEW YORK, Aug 9 — Meet Hailey Jo Hauer and Xander Jace Riniker, both born at 8:08 am on 8/8/08, weighing 8 pounds, 8 ounces, in neighbouring states in the US. Xander, born at St Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is the eighth grandchild for his mother's parents. And he's not the only one in his family with an unusual birthday: His 2-year-old brother, Kael, was born on 4/5/06. Lindsey Hauer thought staff at Lake Region Hospital in Minnesota were joking when they told her the time of her daughter's birth. And then she got a call from the birthing suite noting Hailey's weight. Nurse Jenny Harstad joked that she tried to shrink the baby to 18 inches from her actual 19.5 inches. Several hospital staff members in Minnesota pledged to buy lottery tickets. And Chad Riniker, Xander's father, said that eight hadn't been his lucky number before, but that now he was thinking about buying a lottery ticket.
"I just might," he said. "If nothing else, with four children I should probably play the lottery." — AP
An interest article for Malaysians to read and ponder about: Click Here
After reading this article, it seems like a political consipracy of the Barisan Nasional government to oust Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from the political scene so that BN could rule Malaysia forever with their ineffective, inefficient, uncaring and corrupt administration.
Back to the future, but better prepared this time

Today must have seemed horribly familiar to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as he faced sodomy charges for the second time in 10 years. But having faced it before in 1998, the veteran politician is now better armed to meet the latest onslaught of what he claims to be a malicious attempt to assassinate his character just as he is about to contest a by-election in Permatang Pauh, Penang which will likely pave his entry into Parliament. "In this country, with this charge, nothing surprises me anymore," Anwar told reporters inside Sessions Criminal Court 1 at the Duta Court Complex here this morning. "Until last night, the prime minister was still talking about rape. And now, it's consensual," he added, referring to the sodomy charge against him, made under Section 377B of the Penal Code, which refers to a charge of sodomy by consent. In Malaysia, sodomy, regardless of whether it is carried out between consenting adults or otherwise, is a crime. "If it is consensual, both should be charged," Anwar contended. Calling the charge "ridiculous", he said that after 1998 nobody believes in the charge anymore, "except Dolah". Meanwhile, Home Minister Datuk Syed Hamid Albar, at a press conference nearby the court complex, commented that Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, a 23-year-old former male aide, should not be charged because he was the complainant. In response to the minister's statement, Anwar's lawyer Sankara Nair fired back: "In many cases, the complainant is lying. If a complainant is lying, he should be charged. So why in this case do we believe Saiful, but not Anwar?" Anwar's courtroom drama today began a few minutes after 10am, when residing Sessions Court judge S.M. Komathy Suppiah stepped inside the smallish room crammed with lawyers, reporters and prominent members of Pakatan Rakyat, including the DAP’s Lim Kit Siang and his son Guan Eng; and Pas's Dr Lo' Lo' Ghazali, the MP for Titiwangsa, and Dr Dzulkifly Ahmad (Kuala Selangor MP).
When the court officer read the charge aloud to him, a smartly dressed and collected Anwar replied: "This is a malicious and treacherous slander. I am not guilty of the charge." Speaking to reporters inside the courtroom while waiting for his release papers to be processed, he remarked on the difference. "Before, when they charged me, I was in prison and had very limited access to lawyers," Anwar said in reference to Sodomy I. Today, he has a battalion of lawyers at his disposal. The nine-member defence panel, led by an eloquent Sulaiman Abdullah, successfully argued their way to get him released on a personal bond without having to fork out any money or hand over his passport. Anwar was amused by the prosecution's handling of the bail argument. They were unable to convince the judge why Anwar should not be allowed unconditional bail. Sulaiman had argued impassionatedly in support of his client's character and past co-operation with the police to assist in their investigations, which was attested by DSP Jude Pereira, the investigating officer in the Sodomy II case. "I don't think they came prepared. I believe the A-G's Chambers are still under instructions. This is clearly a political game. The charge is clearly to embarrass me," said Anwar, adding "I'm not embarrassed by it." Judge Komathy, in making her decision, said: "It is an elementary principle in the criminal justice process that a man is innocent until proven guilty. I do not think there is any likelihood that Datuk Seri will abscond. I'm going to release him on a personal bond for the sum of RM20,000 without surety." The court gallery burst into raucous applause at her statement. Anwar was pleased with the judge's decision. "She is a decent lady," he said, commenting on the way she had handled the court proceedings this morning, allowing both the prosecution and the defence team to argue the details of his bail. Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Ismail too commended the judge for her fairness, as did DAP supremo and Ipoh Timur parliamentarian Lim Kit Siang.
"I think it is as it should be," commented Lim senior to The Malaysian Insider on Komathy's decision to allow Anwar out on a personal bond for the sum of RM20,000 but without surety. "Anwar should not have been charged in the first place. I will call on the Solicitor-General in the Attorney-General's Chambers to reconsider that they dump the prosecution altogether. It's not good for the country to have another cause celebre which puts our execution of justice in the dock," he added. Gary Gray, a political officer holding a watching brief for the US Embassy here who was also in the courtroom, remarked: "We're obviously watching the case closely. We're very happy so long as the due process of law is followed." However, Anwar himself at the end of today's court hearing, has already moved on to the next important step, campaigning in the upcoming Permatang Pauh by-election. Despite having the hometown advantage, he is not taking things lightly. He will be homeward bound this Saturday to begin what many are already calling the "Mother of All By-Elections".

Anwar confident

MALAYSIAN opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said on Sunday he is confident of winning a by-election that will allow his return to Parliament, but predicted that the ruling coalition may resort to massive vote-buying to block him.
Mr Anwar also brushed off concerns of possible arrest for alleged sodomy - the second time in a decade he has faced such accusations. 'God willing, I am confident (of winning) but I am not taking things lightly,' he told reporters. Mr Anwar's wife resigned on Thursday as lawmaker from the Permatang Pauh constituency in his hometown in northern Penang state to allow him to run for her seat. The Election Commission is to announce a date for the by-election Wednesday. The constituency has been Mr Anwar's stronghold for nearly three decades, making it the easiest seat for him to win in his effort to re-enter Parliament after a decade away from politics and become prime minister if the opposition seizes power. But Mr Anwar said he expects Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's National Front coalition will mobilize police and government resources - including spending millions of dollars to bribe voters - in a bid to defeat him. 'We are not taking things for granted primarily because if the (National Front) decides to go rough with massive funding and bribery, we will have to be really prepared,' he said. His campaign got a boost on Sunday after a senior member of the Malaysian Chinese Association party in the National Front coalition led some 2,000 supporters to join the opposition.
'This is a good sign. I am gratified because they are coming at a time when personally I am under siege,' Mr Anwar said. The governing coalition has a 30-seat majority in the 222-member Parliament but Mr Anwar has said he will be able to persuade enough lawmakers to switch sides to bring down the government by Sept 16.
His plans hit a snag in June when he was accused by a 23-year-old male aide of sodomy. Mr Anwar insists the accusation was concocted to thwart his political moves. The government has denied any conspiracy. Police have completed their investigation into the case and Mr Anwar's aides say he could be arrested as early as Monday if the attorney general decides to charge him. 'There is no basis, no reason, no grounds for me to be arrested. We will challenge any arrest,' Mr Anwar said.
Sodomy, even between consenting adults, is punishable by up to 20 years in jail in Muslim-majority Malaysia. Prime Minister Abdullah has said Mr Anwar is free to contest the by-election, but warned he cannot use it to escape possible prosecution in the sodomy case. Mr Anwar was fired as deputy prime minister in 1998 and subsequently jailed for alleged sodomy and corruption. The Federal Court overturned the sodomy conviction and freed him in 2004 after he had served his corruption conviction, which barred him from holding political office until April 2008. -- AP
Proud to say that he is an Indian

A year ago a footage emerged from a remote village in India . The video showed a young girl receiving surgery to separate her fingers, which were badly burned and fused together. Why did this operation make headlines around the world? The surgery was performed by a 7-year-old boy named Akrit Jaswal. Now 13 years old, Akrit has an IQ of 146 and is considered the smartest person his age in India -a country of more than a billion people. Before Akrit could even speak, his parents say they knew he was special. 'He learned very fast,' says Raksha, Akrit's mother. 'After learning the alphabet, we started to teach him joining of words, and he started writing as well. He was two.' At an age when most children are learning their ABCs, Akrit was reading Shakespeare and assembling a library of medical textbooks. When he was 5 years old, he enrolled in school. One year later, Akrit was teaching English and math classes. Akrit developed a passion for science and anatomy at an early age. Doctors at local hospitals took notice and started allowing him to observe surgeries when he was 6 years old. Inspired by what he saw, Akrit read everything he could on the topic. When an impoverished family heard about his amazing abilities, they asked if he would operate on their daughter for free. Her surgery was a success.
After the surgery, Akrit was hailed as a medical genius in India . Neighbors and strangers flocked to him for advice and treatment. At age 11, Akrit was admitted to Punjab University .. He's the youngest student ever to attend an Indian university. That same year, he was also invited to London 's famed Imperial College to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of medical research. Akrit says he has millions of medical ideas, but he's currently focused on developing a cure for cancer. 'I've developed a concept called oral gene therapy on the basis of my research and my theories,' he says. 'I'm quite dedicated towards working on this mechanism.' Growing up, Akrit says he used to see cancer patients lying on the side of the road because they couldn't afford treatment or hospitals had no space for them. Now, he wants to use his intellect to ease their suffering. '[I've been] going to hospitals since the age of 6, so I have seen firsthand people suffering from pain,' he says. 'I get very sad, and so that's the main motive of my passion about medicine, my passion about cancer.' Currently, Akrit is working toward a bachelor's degrees in zoology, botany and chemistry. Someday, he hopes to continue his studies at Harvard University.
