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.
The declaration ( regarding SOFA) also, a little to my surprise, had a rather brazen statement about exploiting the resources of
I have my own opinion about what ought to be done and, in fact, it happens to be the same as the opinion of the overwhelming majority of Americans and also the overwhelming majority of Iranians, according to the polls in the two countries, namely that the right solution to this problem is to declare a nuclear weapons free zone in the entire region which would include Iran, Israel and American forces deployed there and so on. About three quarter of Americans are in favor of that, and I think that's the right idea!
Remember that everything the Bush administration has done, almost without exception, has turned into a catastrophe for the interest that they represent. And it's possible that they might decide to go out in some blaze of glory just to see what happens. Hit the system with a sledgehammer and see what happens. I frankly doubt it. I think that as far as anyone can tell, the

On 24 June 08 Bernama reported that For the first time in Parliament's history, reporters were barred from the Parliament lobby Tuesday. To counter the move, members of the media showed their solidarity by boycotting all press conferences held at Parliament, include those by the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister. The media personnel took such a bold step to express their unhappiness at the "unfriendly ruling" by Parliament's management.
After failing to get a satisfactory explanation from the Speaker (Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia) , the Parliament’s management committee and the minister responsible for giving the instruction, Datuk Nazri Aziz during the lunch break. The BN-BCC acted to remove the barriers place to bar the media personnel. This resulted in Datuk Nazri calling them “kids and gangsters”. Not happy with the incident, the BN-BCC will discuss on Monday, what action is to taken against Datuk Nazri, which to them is “very unbecoming”.
Chedet.com was quick to make this comments : Having muzzled their own supporters, BN is now trying to prevent the Press from being present in Parliament to hear debates and meet MPs. Why BN should bother doing this is a mystery. Already the press is being directed by a "Supremo" on what to report and how to report it.
Maybe it is because among the pressmen there were bloggers. The Supremo is still unable to direct the bloggers on what they should say and how they should say it.
Read the comments from TG Dato’ Nik Aziz , Harakah was denied to the public and reduced their production to once every two weeks, after 1999 UMNO poor election showing. Wasn’t it our very Tun Dr Mahathir who was the “Supremo” Not only Harakah even Cresent International was also banned in Malaysia, Crescent International was an equivalent of Democracy.org or Counterpunch or Information Clearing House for the Muslims. Ever wonder who started this Culture in UMNO?
To prove the gravity of lack of freedom of expression under the former prime minster, the acronym for UMNO baru was said to be Under Mahathir No Opposition. This interpretation was given to UMNO baru by UMNO members themselves. Today Tun Dr Mahathir is no longer in UMNO, he had resigned as a member of UMNO, so the UMNO members gave him another intepretation of an acronym MAHATHIR - which means Must Always Hentam Abdullah Till He Is Removed.
On 24 June 2008 it was reported that Dato’ Kamarudin Jaafar had written a letter of thanks to the Home Minister Dato' Seri Syed Hamid Albar for approving or issuing KDN to Harakah allowing it to be published 2 times a week (8 times a month). It was stated whether the circulation will be limted to members of PAS or Harakah will be allowed to be sold to the public. TG Dato’ Nik Aziz voiced out that it is high time for Harakah to be allowed to be published daily. From TG Dato’ Nik Aziz comments it appears that the KDN allows Harakah to be circulated to the public.

They don't get it, they will turn the table on their leaders. It is their core values, pure culture, and the very essence of the thing they call ketuanan; it wasn't intended to make others slaves; it was only objectively intended that they must be bestowed with the 3Ps.
The same people from Umno, is also the same people in keADILan, albeit some.
Well, if the citizens thought Pakatan Rakyat can be different and will not be the same; then it would need these people, who had defected from one vehicle source to another vehicle source, to go through a blood transfusion and a radically insidious paradigm shift of values and culture. . . . . .more
He also sought a court order, costs and other relief deemed fit. . . more
Lawyer Datuk V.K. Lingam and tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan had filed a similar application on Monday, followed by Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, Tuesday.
PUTRAJAYA, June 25 (Bernama) -- Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today said he would not seek judicial review of the findings by the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Lingam video clip.
Instead the former prime minister was prepared to go to the court.
"I am already guilty. Because of the basis of the Royal Commission, if something is possible, then it must have happened if it is possible. . . more
Everybody is eagerly whether Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim will follow Tun Dr Mahathir or the rest.
The latest decision was approved by a 9-1 vote with Richard Fisher, president of the Fed's regional bank in Dallas, calling for a rise in interest rates now to fight inflation.
It is a situation that the head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, recently described as being caught between "fire and ice". . . more news
The perception among the public now is that the rulers, in the aftermath of the 12th General Elections, have begun assuming an active role. Harakah spoke to Professor Dr Abdul Aziz Bari, a constitutional law expert at the International Islamic University Malaysia.
It seems that Harakah is trying to clarify .....
"these includes the formation of States government, the dissolution of Parliament, declaration of emergency and even the dismissal of government."
the ruler's recent acts :
the scenario :
"We have to bear in mind that the three parties did not go to the polls as one unit like the Barisan Nasional and this has, I think, made the matter rather messy and complicated. But the palace has helped to stabilize the situation and I think we must give them the credit."
"Previously the rulers took the clue from the Umno leadership at the centre but the post-election scenario this time around was different. Unlike before, Umno was not able to control its own assemblymen."
what the Raja of Perlis did :
"the Raja of Perlis went and ascertained the person who had got the most support in the House himself"
what the Sultan of Trengganu did :
"Terengganu was more than just the exercise of power of appointment. I think the palace actually resorted to the notion of reserve power in order to avoid the state from being put under someone whose image was autocratic and unclean."
do not fear Palace intervention :
"To my mind the fear was rather misplaced for it failed to take into account the guardianship role of the monarchy; something that allows the institution to assume a kind of reserve power in order to save the constitution."
a caution in declaring emergency :
"Given the extreme and devastating impact of an emergency on the constitutional provisions, he (the Monarch) has a very important role to make sure that the government does not abuse the provision to protect its interests."
" . . . we have not seen any glaring abuse of powers by them, at least in comparison with the successive governments since independence. And perhaps one needs to see the excesses of some of the rulers as a reaction to the elected politicians who, instead of ruling the country democratically, have become another bunch of autocratic politicians manipulating the system for their own vested interests."
the caveat "if"
"If the system works there is no need to depend on the monarchy but if there is a breakdown or that the system is prevented from functioning then there is a good case for the intervention on the part of the monarchy. Indeed this is an obligation; namely the duty to protect the constitution and its ideals from being subverted and undermined. We've got to remember that it is the duty of everyone vested with public powers to do the same but when these people fail to do that then it is incumbent on the monarchy to come forward. I believe this is wide enough to justify extreme measures so long as it is done with a view to protect and uphold the constitution." . . . to be in context, read the interview.

- The case that led to their dismissal has not been properly over-turned in court.
- Those that were dismissed actually still received their pensions, out of kindness of the ex-PM.
- Now I hear that some of those who didn't even get dismissed are getting this ex-gratia payment! For what!
When you then see a couple of these unjustly ex-gratia-ed ex-judges attacking Tun Dr M as part of Pak Lah's defence, one wonders... is the ex-gratia payment really a RM 1.5 Million BRIBE? Wonder on whilst mulling over this observation by the son of arwah Tan Sri Wan Adnan, a judge with real integrity.
“Imposing stringent inspection requirements on all persons, vehicles, ships, planes, trains, and cargo entering or departing Iran” can be read to mean that the president should initiate a naval blockade of Iran. A unilateral naval blockade without UN sanction is an act of war. . . more
This particular PKR State Assemblyman from Port Kelang is MIA (missing in action). He has of course been seen all over the place but it is mostly when he is frolicking with the Umno people, eating and drinking at various expensive restaurants. While the DAP Member of Parliament for Port Kelang, Charles Santiago, and the DAP State Assemblyman for Pandamaran (also under the Port Kelang Parliamentary constituency), Ronnie Liu, work their butts off, the PKR State Assemblyman for Port Kelang parties with Umno people all night long.
And why has the Port Kelang State Assemblyman not been taken to task? And why must Yahya resign in protest and instigate his supporters to demonstrate? Yahya should have welcomed the move to suspend him for two months until his name is cleared. This will give an impression that he is not taking things personally and has nothing to hide and that he only has the interest of the party’s image at heart. Now it appears like he only cares about himself and not about the party, like a true ex-Umno person.
Is Pakatan Rakyat is losing the plot?
To counter the move, members of the media showed their solidarity by boycotting all press conferences held at Parliament, include those by the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.
The media personnel took such a bold step to express their unhappiness at the "unfriendly ruling" by Parliament's management. . . . more
Zachary Gassoumis came up with the following responses based primarily on two websites:
Substance to avoid
Drugs & Foodstuff to avoid
1) Paracetamol (a.k.a. acetaminophen) is a low-risk contraindicated substance. I have personally used it in the past without disastrous results, but you should try to avoid this and all other NSAIDs as much as possible.
2) I have never read anything to suggest that nuts are unsafe. But take note that the peanut (a.k.a. groundnut) is actually a legume, not a nut, and is therefore contraindicated for people with G6PD deficiency.
3.Chocolate beans 4.Green beans 5.Chick peas 6.Lentils 7.Legumes
3-7) All legumes are contraindicated for G6PD deficients - see website below for a fairly comprehensive list.
8. Vitamin C (or oranges/lemons)
8) Natural vitamin C as found in oranges and lemons is perfectly safe, but the synthetic form found in most vitamins (called ascorbic acid) is contraindicated.
9. Folic acid
9) The same is true for folic acid. The natural form (folate) is perfectly safe and found in fruits and vegetables (especially green leafy vegetables). The synthetic form, folic acid, can be hazardous to people with G6PD deficiency - just like most synthetic drugs.

Earlier, debate on the motion, which had started around 11.30am after Question Time, went on without controversy with 18 MPs picked to debate.
It was scheduled to end at 4.30pm but was extended until 6.45pm to allow more MPs to participate. . . staronline
The declaration is by Raja Petra Kamaruddin, a well-connected journalist who edits the web publication Malaysia Today and is on trial for sedition charges stemming from a commentary on the case. There is no independent confirmation of Raja Petra’s allegations, and the declaration was ignored by Malaysia’s government-linked mainstream media. One Kuala Lumpur-based lawyer with connections to top United Malays National Organisation figures expressed doubt about it.
“The Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor cannot remain silent on the latest bombshell,” wrote Lim Kit Siang, leader of the opposition Democratic Action Party. “The credibility and legitimacy of the Abdullah premiership and government will suffer a mortal blow if Abdullah, Najib and Rosmah remain silent on Raja Petra’s bombshell allegations.” . . asia sentinel
Staronline reported that the prosecution had wrapped up their case yesterday after 124 days. Dr Shaariibuu had read RPK's statutory declaration (SD), the Attorney-General's Chambers had lodged a police report against Raja Petra over the SD and the police are studying it and Raja Petra received another warning of being possibly punished, up to two years' jail or a fine, or both if found guilty of giving a false information.
Jabatan Peguam Negara pula dilaporkan telah membuat aduan polis semalam berhubung akuan bersumpah tersebut.
Menurut laporan itu lagi, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patil berkata dakwaan penulis itu "akan diteliti dengan serius" dan "jika benar (dakwaannya), kita akan bertindak." . . . more on the case.

The fight against poverty, inequality and environmental collapse will define the 21st century, as the fight against slavery or for universal suffrage defined earlier eras. It is hard to imagine a more worthwhile cause. . . more
Since RPK do not wish to make a police report, shouldn’t anyone else does it? Otherwise the Police will not initiate and investigation. Pak Lah, I appeal to you do the right thing if there is any truth in what RPK has written. This two officers must also come forward and clear their name. It would not be right for anyone to make any kind of accusation against anyone but RPK S/D is just not another writing. Maybe PTD or PAT need to say something as the image of the Armed Forces now is on the balance? . . . from another blog.
