A couple of years ago I had set up a wifi system around my house but it was down, I am thinking of making another one and I am going to name it "wifi republic".
I am going to re-organize my blogs too, now I am testing some templates, trying and testing them at this stage. I am trying to fully utilized the latest blogspot editor. Not doubt that they are better with many needs that are taken care of. However the new blogspot editor lack fluidity where we can used different blog templates for different categories of posts or entries.
However I had thought of this new format. Try anak matlesen to see the new format. The present PERWI is slightly messy as I had attempted to master the new blogspot editor. I think by doing that I had taken extra "memories".
I am still in the learning curve and I may not proceed with the present idea for I have to evaluate either to follow the existing system that blogspot new editor provide or do the necessary such as amending the html on the free template that I had obtained satisfactorily to get a system that I want.

In fact, however, a considerable amount of the money the U.S. gives to Pakistan is administered not through U.S. agencies or joint U.S.-Pakistani programs. Instead, the U.S. gives Musharraf's government about $200 million annually and his military $100 million monthly in the form of direct cash transfers. Once that money leaves the U.S. Treasury, Musharraf can do with it whatever he wants. He needs only promise in a secret annual meeting that he'll use it to invest in the Pakistani people. And whatever happens as the result of Rice's review, few Pakistan watchers expect the cash transfers to end.
About $10.58 billion has gone to Pakistan since 9/11. That puts Pakistan in an elite category of U.S. foreign-aid recipients: only Israel, Egypt and Jordan get more or comparable U.S. funding.

The BN Government should not mislead the public that the CPI from January to September 2007 has risen by only 2% when in reality it has risen by 20%. In actual fact in the last four months alone, prices of basic food-stuffs have risen by around 10%:such as rice (5-8%), chilli sauce (5-10%), beehoon (5-10%), biscuits (10-15%), chocolate malt drinks (10-18%), UHT milk (10-15%) and milk powder (10-20%). Many Malaysians have been complaining that everything from toll rates to instant mee noodles have been going up except their salaries.

Iran's envoy to the United Nations Mohammad Khazaei
"As the sole victim of chemical weapons at the present juncture, Iran is determined and highly motivated to help create a world free from WMDs," Khazaei said.
On the Iranian nuclear program, the envoy called talks the only solution to the standoff and the IAEA the only qualified authority to verify Iran's case.
In international affairs Gorbachev oversaw the withdrawal of the Red Army from Afghanistan, a great improvement of relations with the USA and European Community, and the normalization of relations with China. In Eastern Europe in 1989 he accepted the trade union movement Solidarity's electoral victory in Poland and then encouraged the overthrow of hard-line regimes in East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, and Romania, while maintaining a policy of strict non-intervention once revolutions had started. He co-operated with the US-led UN forces during the Gulf War against Iraq in 1990 – 1, even though it was a former Soviet ally.
He may be accused of breaking up the USSR but he has done many good things that the world remembered including his glasnost and perestroika. He was involved actively in SALT (Strategic Arm Limitations Talks) and START ( Strategic Arm Reduction Talks).He also advocated a nuclear arm free world. The then British PM and the US President promised not to incorporate the Warsaw Pact countries into NATO, a promise they never kept.
Since 1991 Gorbachev has been head of the Moscow-based "Gorbachev Fund", a centre for the study of international relations.
BUT WHAT HAS BUSH DONE?
BUSH TERRORIZE THE WORLD
By Patricia Khashayar, MD., Press TV, Tehran
Since ancient times, traditional Iranian medicine has used coriander seeds for treating anxiety and sleeping disorders like insomnia.
Hezbollah has described the United States move to block assets of a number of Lebanon's leading opposition figures as obvious dictatorship. Washington recently decided to block assets belonging to a number of Lebanese and Syrian figures whom US President George W. Bush has accused of carrying out attempts to harm the unconstitutional government of Fouad Saniora. Based on this new measure, American citizens are prohibited from commercial cooperation with the listed individuals.
A group of senior US military commanders have reportedly decided to resign, should the White House order a military strike against Iran.
The reports come as tension in the Persian Gulf region has raised fears that US President George W. Bush might order an attack on Iran before his term expires.
"There are four or five generals and admirals we know would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran," a source with close ties with British intelligence services said.
"There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible.”
Castro criticizes US policies
"The danger of a massive world famine is aggravated by Mr. Bush's recent initiative to transform foods into fuel," Castro wrote, referring to US support for alternative energy initiatives using corn and other food crops to produce biofuels.
In his brief essay Castro went on to write that by "calling on strategic security principles, Bush threatens humanity with World War III, this time using atomic weapons."
Castro has lashed out at Washington a day before Bush plans to announce new strategies in US policy to draw Cuba away from communism.
US President George W Bush and French President Nicolas Sarkozy have said they will work jointly to convince Iran to give up its nuclear program. ( click title )

The US dollar continued to set record lows against the Euro and Canadian dollar, defying calls for a worthwhile correction on unflappable anti-greenback sentiment. Limited economic data on the day left currency traders to force movements off of broader speculative interest, and dollar-selling remained the dominant theme in broader currency markets. In fact, the downtrodden buck fell against all major foreign counterparts on a daily basis.

WASHINGTON -- House Democrats on Tuesday narrowly managed to avert a bruising debate on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney after Republicans, in a surprise maneuver, voted in favor of taking up the measure.
Republicans, changing course midway through a vote, tried to force Democrats into a debate on the resolution sponsored by longshot presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich.

Washington's plan to host a Middle East PEACE conference has raised many eyebrows in the Muslim world, prompting a large number of political figures and analysts to express cynicism about the sincerity of US intentions. ....
One has to bear in mind the US fragile economic conditions as testified by the steady fall in the dollar against a broad range of currencies including to a record low decline against the euro of $1.45, the prospects of recession in the world's largest economy and its colossal budget deficit of $770 billion.
Add to this the fact that the US leads the international arms market, recording $16.9 billion worth of arms sales in 2006.
Sizeable amounts of money injected into the US economy through drug trade should not be downplayed either. As Leuren Moret, an American expert on radiation and public health issues, points out, “Over $850 billion a year in drug money in the US is the CIA cash-flow through the US economy. The US economy would collapse without it.”
Join the pieces of puzzle together and you will simply arrive at the conclusion that what the US needs more than anything else in the Middle East is war and not peace. Conflict and chaos are what can help the world's largest economy keep its lucrative drug and arms business running.
Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Kassem has confirmed that thousands of the party's resistance fighters have staged secret military maneuvers without weapons or uniforms near occupied Palestine's border in southern Lebanon. On Monday Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, reported that Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah personally supervised the maneuvers, which it said were carried out in the last three days and were the biggest ever staged in Lebanon.
The government advises breastfeeding for first six months
Children with one version of the FADS2 gene scored seven points higher in IQ tests if they were breastfed.
But the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences study found breastfeeding had no effect on the IQ of children with a different version.
The gene in question helps break down fatty acids from the diet, which have been linked with brain development.
Seven points difference is enough to put the child in the top third of the class, the researchers said.

| Parti KeADILan Rakyat (KeADILan) mengalu-alukan keputusan Majilis Raja-Raja untuk menolak permohonan bekas Ketua Hakim Tun Ahmad Fairuz untuk melanjutkan jawatannya.|
Walaubagaimanapun, ini hanya merupakan langkah yang pertama. Tindakan berikutnya yang mesti dilakukan adalah amat penting, iaitu penubuhan Suruhanjaya Diraja untuk menyiasat kebebasan kehakiman, khususnya, dalam penyelewengan yang berlaku dalam pelantikan hakim. Penolakan permohonan Tun Ahmad Fairuz ini tidak boleh menjadi alasan untuk mengelakkan penubuhan Suruhanjaya Diraja ini. Jelas terbukti bahawa proces melantik hakim sekarang ini perlu diubah secara menyeluruh untuk mengelakkan krisis keyakinan dalam sistem kehakiman daripada menjadi lebih teruk.
Dalam Persidangan Undang-Undang ke-14 yang baru tamat, dikatakan bahawa kehakiman Malaysia pada masa dulu dihormati dan disanjungi oleh jiran kita. Kini, kita berada di persimpangan jalan, dan langkah yang diambil seterusnya mesti membawa penyelesaian kepada krisis ini, dan bukan menjadikan keadaan bertambah parah.

With oil prices at record levels, the US has little room to maneuver in imposing new sanctions against Iran, the AP reported.
"If Iran sees USD 100 a barrel oil, Iran is likely to conclude, and it may well be true, that no matter how severe the US sanctions are. . . [Iran can stand them]'' said Matthew Levitt, a former US Treasury Department terrorism expert, who is now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
The network made videos of children being abused and sold them to 2,500 customers in 19 countries, says the European police force, Europol.
The films were mainly produced in Ukraine, Belgium and the Netherlands, and most of the victims were Ukrainian.
More than 40 of the arrests were made in Britain, European prosecutors say.
Police have seized thousands of computers, videos and photographs in their investigation - code named Operation Koala.

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
May peace and blessings be upon the Prophet Muhammad and his pure and noble family
(1) Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence ( Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali ), the two Shi'i schools of Islamic jurisprudence ( Ja`fari and Zaydi ), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible. Verily his (or her) blood, honour, and property are inviolable. Moreover, in accordance with the Shaykh Al-Azhar's fatwa, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to the Ash`ari creed or whoever practices real Tasawwuf (Sufism) an apostate. Likewise, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare whosoever subscribes to true Salafi thought an apostate.
Equally, it is neither possible nor permissible to declare as apostates any other group of Muslims who believes in God, Glorified and Exalted be He, and His Messenger (may peace and blessings be upon him), the pillars of faith (Iman), and the five pillars of Islam, and does not deny any necessarily self-evident tenet of religion.
(2) There exists more in common between the various schools of Islamic jurisprudence than there is difference between them. The adherents to the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are in agreement as regards the basic principles of Islam. All believe in Allah (God), Glorified and Exalted be He, the One and the Unique; that the Noble Qur'an is the Revealed Word of God preserved and protected by God, Exalted be He, from any change or aberration; and that our master Muhammad, may blessings and peace be upon him, is a Prophet and Messenger unto all mankind. All are in agreement about the five pillars of Islam: the two testaments of faith (shahadatayn); the ritual prayer (salat); almsgiving (zakat); fasting the month of Ramadan (sawm), and the Hajj to the sacred house of God (in Mecca). All are also in agreement about the foundations of belief: belief in Allah (God), His angels, His scriptures, His messengers, and in the Day of Judgment, in Divine Providence in good and in evil. Disagreements between the 'ulama (scholars) of the eight schools of Islamic jurisprudence are only with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu`) and some fundamentals ( usul) [of the religion of Islam]. Disagreement with respect to the ancillary branches of religion (furu`) is a mercy. Long ago it was said that variance in opinion among the 'ulama (scholars) "is a mercy".
(3) Acknowledgement of the schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Mathahib) within Islam means adhering to a fundamental methodology in the issuance of fatwas: no one may issue a fatwa without the requisite qualifications of knowledge. No one may issue a fatwa without adhering to the methodology of the schools of Islamic jurisprudence. No one may claim to do unlimited Ijtihad and create a new opinion or issue unacceptable fatwas that take Muslims out of the principles and certainties of the Shari`ah and what has been established in respect of its schools of jurisprudence.
U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), sponsor of House Resolution 333 to impeach the vice president is bringing a motion of personal privilege to force the vote on impeachment either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, according to the group. Rep. Kucinich is a Democratic candidate for president.
Co-sponsored by the Mercer DFA Chapter, the Princeton Area MoveOn group, and the Princeton Community Democratic Organization, the meeting will feature speakers, planning to support the vote, an open mic, and next steps. An open mic period will allow audience debate and participation.
Speakers invited and expected include Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Princeton), Ray Stever, president of the New Jersey State Industrial Union Council, Stuart Hutchison of New Jersey Impeach Groups, Joan Hervey of Stonewall Democrats, Irene Goldman, chairwoman of Coalition for Peace Action, Cheryl Biren-Wright of South Jersey Impeach, Mary Ellen Marino of Central Jersey Impeach, Kevin Husy of Brotherhood of Railway Workers, and Larry Hamm, chairman of People Organized for Progress.

The Iranian embassy in China released a statement on Monday, denouncing accusations made by the Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni against Tehran's nuclear program.
'The Leader of the Islamic Revolution and other Iranian officials have reiterated that nuclear arms have no place in Iran's defense doctrine, as such weapons are against our laws and religious beliefs,' the statement said.
The statement added that the Zionist regime's aggressive and outrageous policies are causing instability and uncertainty in the Middle East.
In a bid to secure Beijing's support for imposing further sanctions against Iran, Livni alleged that Tehran is pursuing nuclear weapons programs. However, Livni failed to lobby China's support, as Chinese officials announced later that they are committed to a diplomatic resolution to Iran's nuclear standoff.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (L) and Russian President Vladimir Putin (R)
A couple of weeks ago, Russian President Putin made a historic visit to Iran, nominally to attend a summit of the Caspian Sea littoral states - Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Iran.
The summit, itself, resulted in a number of 'milestone' agreements, including one prohibiting other countries (such as the United States) from using - 'in any circumstances' - territory or facilities of any Caspian Sea littoral state (such as Azerbaijan) for 'use of force or aggression' against another (such as Iran).

The bill banning the use of Bahrain's terrain is the best evidence in this regard, said Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs Ali-Reza Sheikh-Attar.
Political analysts here ( Iran ) say they are surprised at the degree to which the West focuses on their president, saying that it reflects a general misunderstanding of their system.
Unlike in the United States, in Iran the president is not the head of state nor the commander in chief. That status is held by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader, whose role combines civil and religious authority. At the moment, this president’s power comes from two sources, they say: the unqualified support of the supreme leader, and the international condemnation he manages to generate when he speaks up.
“The United States pays too much attention to Ahmadinejad,” said an Iranian political scientist who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal. “He is not that consequential.”
Google’s open social networking platform play is the buzz of the blogosphere tonight. (see Techmeme). Indeed, it is called OpenSocial in that the set of APIs allows developers to create applications that work on any social network that joins Google’s open party. So far, besides Google’s Orkut social net, LinkedIn, hi5, XING, Friendster, Plaxo and Ning (see Marc Andreessen’s post) have joined the party.
Oracle and salesforce.com are also supporting Google’s OpenSocial efforts, which indicates that they have plans to add social networking elements to their application platforms. OpenSocial will officially launch on Thursday.
Plaxo emailed a statement about OpenSocial this evening, getting ahead of the stampede:
“Dynamic profiles redefine what users should expect in terms of how they can represent themselves in a social or business network,” said Todd Masonis, Co-Founder and VP of Products for Plaxo. “We believe that users should have full control over what they share with whom – and that the catalog of widgets that they can choose from should be as open and diverse as the web itself. We are excited to support in dynamic profiles any application written to Google’s just–launched OpenSocial APIs. ”
Google is reportedly rolling out its mobile operating system and one thing is clear: It’s going to make a big splash. The question is who will drown in Google’s wake?
The reports about Google’s Android phone software are multiplying at a rapid rate. The New York Times did a big profile of Andy Rubin, the guy behind Google’s mobile plans (you don’t think that access would have been granted if this launch wasn’t happening do you?). Rubin joined Google when the search giant bought his company–Android–in 2005. News.com’s Tom Krazit reports that Google will announce its mobile phone software stack Monday and has some detail on the 30 companies lined up as partners.
But once the details emerge the real handicapping begins. What’s the impact of Google’s mobile moves? Will Google really reshape the wireless industry? Here’s a look at some of the winners and losers and a few companies left on the fence:
Details emerged today on Google’s broad social networking ambitions, first reported here in late September, with a follow up earlier this week. The new project, called OpenSocial (URL will go live on Thursday), goes well beyond what we’ve previously reported. It is a set of common APIs that application developers can use to create applications that work on any social networks (called “hosts”) that choose to participate.
What they haven’t done is launch yet another social network platform. As more and more of these platforms launch, developers have difficult choices to make. There are costs associated with writing and maintaining applications for these social networks. Most developers will choose one or two platforms and ignore the rest, based on a simple cost/benefit analysis.
Google wants to create an easy way for developers to create an application that works on all social networks. And if they pull it off, they’ll be in the center, controlling the network.
What They’re Launching......

A new poll conducted by Press TV website suggests that international damnation and US public condemnation are the consequences of any military action by the Unites States against Iran.
The respondents were asked: "If US President George W. Bush mounts World War III under the pretext that Iran has acquired the necessary nuclear knowledge, will he face international opposition? international consent? or US public condemnation?"
The Majority of respondents (68.84%) answered that such a move would lead to international opposition......
