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.

OUTGOING Election Commission (EC) Chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman, 66, has been through thick and thin. Besides having voted in every general election since 1964, he has served the EC for almost 25 years, starting as Secretary (1979-1995) and as later as Chairman (2000-2008).

Before Israeli warplanes carried out a massive air-strike inside the Gaza Strip, killing at least 200 and wounding 800 others.
Gaza a week before the Israeli strike.
Gaza's 1.5 million citizens have been cut off from the rest of the world since June 2007. Since then, the Israelis have imposed ever more severe restrictions on what may enter the territory, now significantly limiting even the most basic of humanitarian supplies including food, fuel, clothing, cooking oil and medicine. As a result, according to Press TV, hundreds of patients have died, 40 percent of ambulances have stopped running due to lack of fuel, and 75 percent of Gaza’s children suffer from malnutrition. As reported in the Dec. 14 Sunday Times, some families have now resorted to eating grass. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency just announced it has been forced to suspend food distribution to the 750,000 Gazans who depend on them for assistance. It has run out of flour because all border crossings closed by Israel. [In Pictures ]
Washington once again used its veto powers on Sunday to block a resolution calling for an end to the massive ongoing Israeli attacks against the Gaza Strip.

More than five years after the fall of the former dictator and the establishment of a democratically-elected government in that country, the UN has yet to remove Iraq from Chapter VII, he told IRNA.
Keprihatinan Almarhum dan Tuanku Najihah terhadap permasalahan rakyat memberi ruang secukupnya mendengar sambil bergaul selesa dengan rakyat biasa. Baginda memperlihatkan kecemerlangan di pelbagai bidang dan sewajarnya menjadi contoh buat semua rakyat Malaysia. Memulakan khidmat di sektor awam sebagai Pegawai Daerah Rembau, kemudiannya sebagai diplomat, sebelum ditabalkan sebagai Yang Di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan pada tahun 1968, Almarhum Tuanku Ja’afar sememangnya tidak dapat berpisah dengan kehidupan berbakti kepada nusa dan bangsa.
Secara peribadi kami amat sedih dan terkesan dengan kemangkatan Almarhum. Hubungan kami lebih akrab tatkala Baginda menjadi Yang Di-pertuan Agong. Malah Almarhum Tuanku tidak memperkenan pemecatan saya pada 2 September 1998, dan sehingga kini kes tersebut masih belum diputuskan secara muktamad olih mahkamah.
Kami tambah terharu manakala baginda berdua berangkat menziarah saya di Klinik Alpha, Munich sejurus satelah saya dibebaskan pada tahun 2004. Kali terakhir saya dan Azizah mengadap kebawah duli Tuanku berdua ialah beberapa bulan dahulu di Seremban.
Semuga Allah mencucuri rahmat ke atas roh Almarhum dan dihimpunkan bersama orang-orang yang soleh.
Having been humbled to become the opposition in Kedah, Penang, Perak, Selangor, Kelantan and getting routed in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, has served as a useful experience for the largest Malay party, with three million members, to continue to be at the forefront as the leader in the national political arena.
The politics of money that has snaked its way in the party for so long has to be eradicated with full commitment and sacrifice even though the result may be unsavory.
These actions of money politics are worrisome in that they will cause UMNO to be sidelined, giving rise to the suggestion that candidates for the party's highest posts be picked by all UMNO members just like in a general election.
At the same time, various calls were made for the quota system to contest party positions to be abolished on grounds that it restricted contests.
Among those who made the call was Dr Mahathir himself. It was he who introduced the quota system after he was challenged by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and almost lost in the 1987 party election.
In July, Abdullah announced a power transition plan to hand over the reins as party president and BN chairman to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the middle of next year.
Two months later, the UMNO supreme council made a decision to have the party general assembly in March next year to smoothen an earlier transition of power.
Going into 2009, while waiting for the March party elections, UMNO needs to take organised steps as the bigger challenge is to fulfill the people's aspirations.[read more]
And when he finally speaks, “progressives” should prepare for the worst: after all, this is someone who endorsed the Israeli re-invasion of Lebanon.
Gaza health official Moawiya Hassanain confirmed the report, saying 155 Palestinians have been killed in the airstrikes.
The massive Israeli bombardment of Gaza is "only just the beginning," Israeli military spokesman Avi Benayahu told army radio on Saturday.
"This is only just the beginning of an operation launched after a security cabinet decision. It could take time. We have not fixed a timeline and we will act according to the situation on the ground," he said.
A series of Israeli occupation strikes targeted Hamas compounds throughout the Gaza Strip, causing widespread panic, Hamas officials said on Saturday.
Al-Manar correspondent in Gaza said that what is going on is an unprecedented massacre against the Palestinians in the Strip.[read more]

The Djibouti Agreement gives Ethiopia legal cover to withdraw its troops from Somalia, without any mention of the Ethiopian army's alleged war crimes in Mogadishu and elsewhere on Somali soil.
Likewise, the Bush administration will point to the Djibouti Agreement as a formal document calling for a ceasefire " which has never been implemented on the ground " and the timely withdrawal of Ethiopian forces, as stipulated under the peace deal. [read more]

The United States economy is in steep decline.
The signs are all around us - record breaking numbers of foreclosures, jobs being exported left and right, factories shutting down, bankruptcies and homelessness on the rise, and consumer prices and healthcare costs skyrocketing.
To understand HOW we got here, we must understand what RULE of LAW means and how it can be manipulated to serve only special interests such that it becomes indistinguishable from RULE by FIAT.
Americans cannot remedy the problems that we face as a nation today, unless we realize that our system of democracy is seriously flawed - it enables a corrupt few to RULE by FIAT over the vast majority. [read more]

Try to avoid alcohol and caffeine as they have a diuretic effect and cause the body to lose fluids and essential minerals.
Avoid smoking and secondhand smoke. Nicotine constricts blood vessels, depriving the skin of the oxygen and nutrients it needs for good health. Smoking also involves the repetition of certain facial expressions which eventually turn into permanent wrinkles around the mouth. Smoking can also result in leathery skin.
Sun exposure can damage the skin and causes dryness, wrinkles, rashes and blisters. Stay out of the sun as much as possible. Always use a good sunscreen on all areas exposed to the sun. [read more]

| 'Top Ten' humanitarian crises reveal growing insecurity, neglected health needs |
|Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) releases 11th annual list|
New York, NY — Massive forced civilian displacements, violence, and unmet medical needs in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan, and Pakistan, along with neglected medical emergencies in Myanmar and Zimbabwe, are some of the worst humanitarian and medical emergencies in the world, the international medical humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) reported today in its annual list of the "Top Ten" humanitarian crises.
The report underscores major difficulties in bringing assistance to people affected by conflict. The lack of global attention to the growing prevalence of HIV-tuberculosis co-infection and the critical need for increased global efforts to prevent and treat childhood malnutrition—the underlying cause of death for up to five million children per year—are also included in the list.
View the Top Ten Humanitarian Crises of 2008.

In recent weeks, numerous voices around the world have started to denounce the Israeli apartheid system and the crimes against humanity that the Zionist state has been committing against the Palestinian people in Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem (Al-Quds).
The response of the Zionist state has been to multiply its insults, provocations and attacks on international organizations, such as the United Nations, and its officials.
The last one of these offences has been the detention at Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv and subsequent expulsion of Richard Falk, the United Nations' Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian Territories. Falk was on his way to the Palestinian occupied territories to carry out his officially mandated functions.[read more]

Size Does Matter
There’s something to be said about Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors. To begin, the size is a lot less than what is usually given. For example, if it’s a 32" monitor, it actually means 32" diagonally. However, a 17" CRT monitor will only have a 15.7" viewable diagonal image. This is where LCD monitors score, because they are measured by the actual size of the screen. . . [more]
The religious department then sacked the imams and said that this was done on the instructions of the Sultan of Selangor. My brother and I were of course extremely perturbed because we personally knew some of these imams and we knew for a fact (since we had gone to pray at these mosques a number of times) that this was not true. The truth was, these imams were PAS members and Umno wanted them removed and they were using the Sultan’s name to do this. . . [read more]
