Are You Reading Too Much?

I ran across and interesting quote by Albert Einstein the other day.
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
~ Albert Einstein
This isn’t exactly the best known quote by Einstein and I doubt many teachers quote this to their students. Reading is generally a good thing, but if it starts becoming a substitute for thinking on your own it can hold you back from reaching your potential.

This quote touches on a problem that holds many people back from actually accomplishing things. It is easy to spend so much time researching that you never actually execute. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read, do research and try to learn from others, but at some point you have to decide that you’ve gather enough data and the time has come to do something. That may be starting your own business, writing a book or even repainting your living room. You have a very finite lifespan. Some people send their life preparing for what they want to do without ever actually doing what they want to do.

Sometimes the most helpful situations are the ones that force you to go ahead and do something by removing the option to try to collect more information.

10 Stubborn Food Myths That Just Won’t Die, Debunked by Science

Madu tualang power! Click here
Dicedok dari: http://lifehacker.com

Myth 1: Never Use Wooden Cutting Boards with Meat

Unfortunately, there's a great deal of research that disputes this notion. One of the most famous studies was conducted at the University of California: Davis, by Dean O. Cliver, Ph.D of the UC-Davis Food Safety Laboratory. His research points out that there's no significant antibacterial benefit from using a plastic cutting board over a wood one. He notes that even if you apply bacteria to a wooden cutting board, its natural properties cause the bacteria to pass through the top layer of the wood and settle inside, where they're very difficult to bring out unless you split the board open.

This rule, one that I myself have repeated, comes from the notion that using a wooden cutting board will result in tiny scratches and cuts from your knife, and if you use that cutting board with meat-especially raw meat-that all those meat juices will settle into those tiny cuts in the board, and no matter how much you scrub, those germs aren't coming out. The point has even been made by people as esteemed as Alton Brown. The solution is to use plastic cutting boards, which can be dishwashed and sanitized, and therefore must be safer, right? more

Top EPL Cheats

Madu tualang power! Click here
There have been and currently are many players who have been branded ‘cheats’ in the Premier League, some deservedly more than others. There are those cheats who seem to get away with it most of the time and those who are singled out and vilified by opposition fans.

So what constitutes cheating in football? In my opinion the title of ‘cheat’ should go to those players who dive, deliberately aim to get an opposing player sent off, deliberately set out to injure a fellow player or feign injury.

So bearing that in mind here and in no particular order are my Top 5 Premier League cheats, past and present:

Robert Pires (former Arsenal and Aston Villa midfielder) – The hugely talented Frenchman used to wow the crowd at the old Highbury with some wonderful skills and a countless number of goals. But Pires created a reputation for himself as a diver and there were many examples of this that he would not too proud to watch back today.

It’s official: Learning languages makes you smarter

Madu tualang power! Click here
Academics from Newcastle and York universities say that Education Secretary Michael Gove’s statement that learning languages makes people smarter has a sound scientific basis.

The language we speak represents the world in a certain way. For instance, the English language teaches us that pink is not the same colour as red, and grey is not the same as black, whereas blue is just one colour, regardless of its lightness.

But different languages represent the world differently. For instance, in Italian there are two colours corresponding to the English blue: celeste is light (literally: sky-coloured) blue, and blu is dark blue, similar to the distinction between pink and red. So when an English speaker learns Italian he must learn to think about colours differently in order to use the correct word.

Professor Vivian Cook, Newcastle University (pictured), and Dr Benedetta Bassetti, University of York, are editors of Language and Bilingual Cognition (Psychology Press, 2011) and have spent several years investigating the benefits of knowing two languages.

“We already knew that learning another language improves our knowledge of our mother tongue, and thanks to the work of Professor Ellen Bialystok and others, we also knew that bilingualism has positive effects on the brain at both ends of life,” said Professor Cook.

“Young children develop theory of mind earlier if they know two languages, and in older people, bilingualism can postpone the onset of dementia.”
However, the researchers wanted to take this a step further to see if knowing two specific languages could actually be a form of ‘mind-training’, and discovered that much research shows that being bilingual did literally change the way people see the world.

Early last century linguist Benjamin Whorf was the first to say that western languages make us see reality in a set way, and therefore learning other languages could be beneficial because it would free our minds from such linguistic constraints.

The positive effects of bilingualism are largely due to the fact that learning a new language involves embracing new concepts that are not represented in our own mother tongue, or are different in the two languages. “If I ask you to think of ‘lunch’, you’ll probably think about a sandwich with crisps,” explained Dr Bassetti. “If I ask an Italian to think of pranzo - Italian for ‘lunch’ - he’ll think of a dish of pasta followed by meat and vegetables.”

The Miracle of Bahasa Indonesia and Arabic

Madu tualang power! Click here
Nikolaos van Dam / Jakarta Post
October 13, 2011


It has always been the dream and wish of many Arabs that everyone should speak the same classical Arabic. Arabic dialects are considered by some Arab linguists to be a degenerate form of the language of the Koran, or of the Arabic supposedly spoken by the Prophet Muhammad.

In reality, however, Arabic dialects have always existed, even during the time of the Prophet Muhammad. It would actually have been an anomaly if the Arabian Peninsula would have been a homogeneous linguistic area.

For it is only normal that there are regional varieties in languages spoken over a larger territory. The Arabic of the Qur'an, therefore, was one of many varieties, also in the past. Language variations that existed at the time of the rise of Islam are even reflected in minor differences in readings of the Qur'an.

The Arab Islamic armies coming from the Arabian Peninsula and conquering Greater Syria and Mesopotamia, as well as North Africa, all brought their particular dialects with them, and they and their descendants “Arabized” the populations in the conquered regions in their own particular ways. Arabic dialects subsequently developed separately, growing further apart also as a result of language mingling with the various languages then spoken in the conquered territories; the highly diverse Arabic language of today is its natural result.

Among Arab nationalists, the ideal continues to be that all Arabs should speak the same classical language variety. The reality is, however, that nobody speaks classical Arabic, or modern, standard Arabic, as a mother tongue, be it at home or in other informal social environments. It would be unrealistic, therefore, to expect that classical Arabic will ever become the unified social language of the Arabs, which it has never been. Nevertheless, this desire remains of undiminished central importance as a unifying factor for the Arab world.

The development of Indonesian, (originally Malay), has historically been rather different from that of Arabic. A century ago, Malay was spoken only by a minority in the territory, which today constitutes the Republic of Indonesia. Less than 10 percent of the population spoke Malay as their natural, mother tongue; it was a majority language in particular parts of Sumatra only. From there, and from the Malaysian Peninsula, or the “Malay motherland” in the wider sense, it spread via tradesmen to limited areas elsewhere in the Indonesian archipelago where, over the centuries, it developed as a kind of traders’ lingua franca (Melayu pasar). It was only during the 1920s that Malay started to be developed into a new standard language, which was later named Bahasa Indonesia.

The initially somewhat artificial language was based on the former official language used in the royal correspondence of the Malay Johor-Riau Kingdom. This formal language, which was not a spoken, daily language like the Malay dialect of the Riau area, was further developed, initially by Dutch colonial linguists like Van Ophuijsen.

At a later stage, Indonesian nationalist linguists started playing an important role, some with a Sumatran Minangkabau Malay background, like Sutan Takdir Alisjahbana, as well as Indonesians from other regions. It resulted in a very successful example of “language planning”; it was a miracle that this language, originally labeled General Cultivated Malay, became, within a century, the official language all over Indonesia, from Sabang to Merauke.

It was a new language in the sense that it had not generally been written, let alone spoken, in this form in Indonesia before the Sumpah Pemuda, or Youth Pledge, of Oct. 28, 1928, or before the end of the Dutch colonial era. The language succeeded in attaining the strong position of a unifying language for most Indonesians.

Although it had apparently been the official intention to teach everyone the same standard Bahasa Indonesia, in practice various forms of colloquial Indonesian dialects developed as well. Malay dialects, which had already been spoken previously, remained relatively unaffected. Jakartan Indonesian developed into the most prominent and prestigious dialect. (It should be noted that Jakartan is not the same as Betawi, which is a much older Malay dialect spoken in Jakarta, formerly Batavia).

In theory, there had been the possibility for Bahasa Indonesia to achieve the ideal, which many Arabs had envisaged for their language, namely to have everyone speak one single official language as a mother tongue. In practice, however, things did not work out that way. This was probably also the result of the fact that teachers of Indonesian mixed the official language with regional elements of their own languages, or with their various Malay dialects.

Having studied only the official form of Bahasa Indonesia, I was surprised to discover that it is nowhere spoken spontaneously in its pure form as a home language or mother tongue. The differences between Bahasa Indonesia and the so-called dialects, whether considered “slang” or not, are generally big enough for non-Indonesians (who only know the official Indonesian) to not fully understand varieties of informal language. Conversely, something similar applies to less educated Indonesians, who may have difficulty in completely understanding the official language.

Is this a negative phenomenon? I think it just reflects the reality that dialects tend to develop next to an official language, and will almost inevitably keep existing alongside it.

This phenomenon, called diglossia, is known to exist in many countries, and as such, is to be perceived as a very normal thing, although this fact is not always recognized or acknowledged. Next to Bahasa Indonesia and a variety of colloquial Indonesian, there are also many Indonesians who know a regional language, such as Javanese, Sundanese or one of the other hundreds of local languages. In a language situation of this sort, we might even have to speak of triglossia, or even multiglossia. For instance, Javanese Indonesians are expected to be able to switch between three varieties, depending on the social context.

There is not much that can be done against diglossia or triglossia, or even multiglossia, except for — in the Indonesian case — creating a strong awareness that a high-level Bahasa Indonesia should be taught in schools and other educational institutions, with the message that it is a very beautiful and sophisticated form of Indonesian, which has played a vital role in uniting the people of Indonesia. This unifying role deserves to be well maintained, just as is the case with Arabic.

Language purists tend to want to enforce certain formal language forms. They can never dictate, however, what people speak at home, and efforts to impose their linguistic standards may even help create a dislike for the official language. What they, and others, can do, however, is to stimulate a strong affection for Bahasa Indonesia in such a way that the people of Indonesia will like to also speak this language in their daily lives.

Recognising the Closeness Between Christians and Muslims

Madu tualang power! Click here
Dicedok dari: Michael Thomas/IDS
August 4, 2011

The French film "Des Hommes et Des Dieux" (Of Gods and Men), is the best film of the year.

It thoroughly examines religion and fanaticism, and it is especially timely in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Oslo committed by a professed Christian.

It is the true story of French monks who were murdered in Algeria in the 1990s during a period of civil unrest. The brothers decided to stay in their small town, even at great personal risk. Pressures to leave the little town surrounded the monks.

Their love for the Muslim people around them and their unwillingness to fear the tyranny of death were the chief motivations to stay. And stay they did. The film is a beautiful meditation on love and hope, brotherhood and fidelity. It also demonstrates the potential closeness between Muslims and Christians.

In the film, the Catholic brothers and priests are invited to Muslim religious celebrations and consulted in times of trial. One of the brothers is a doctor for impoverished Muslims in the community, and young people from the town help the monks with their gardens.

In the village of Tibhirine, between Muslim citizen and Catholic monk, there is mutual love. The Quran is quoted in the film to the same effect: “The nearest to the faithful are those who say ‘We are Christians.’ That is because there are priests and monks among them and because they are free of pride.”

The identity of the brothers’ killers is still a mystery. Some speculate they died at the hands of Muslim religious fanatics. Others argue the monks were murdered by the state. I would have to side with the second suggestion.

Local military leaders hate the monks for their willingness to treat wounded terrorists and for their unwillingness to allow military protection in their monastery. However, Muslim terrorists who broke into the monastery for medical supplies left the monks in a spirit of fellowship and respect. Muslims and Christians are not enemies. Muslims and Christians are together enemies of violence and hatred.

They are both the enemies of secularism. When the French Abbot was threatened by a Muslim terrorist, he quoted the passage above from the Quran.

In other words, he was not dismissing Islam as violent, but calling this Muslim man to live his own religion more faithfully. The two parted unharmed.

The terrorists in the film were responsible for violence, certainly. They did so because they did not live up to their own creed: that of the state.

Whenever secular military leaders committed violence, they did live up to their creed. Anders Behring Breivik recently murdered people in the name of Christianity in Oslo. He did not behave as a Christian in the same way that Muslim terrorists in Tibhirine did not behave as Muslims.

Rather, these violent actions committed in the name of two great faiths are perversions of their teachings. Instead of dismissing all religious people as fanatics — or religion as breeding fanaticism — it is better to recognize that some fanatics happen to consider themselves to be religious.

This remains true­ whether you’re in Norway or Algeria, or whether you call yourself a Muslim or a Christian. What is more powerful than any violence is the love these religions have brought to the world.

10 Most Impressive EPL Players thus Far

Madu tualang power! Click here


No. 10. Gabriel Agbonlahor, Aston Villa: Looked completely washed-up last season due to the prominence of Villa’s Bent/Downing/Young attacking triumvirate. Restored to the side after seeing his competition flogged over the summer, Gabby has already scored more in seven games this season (4) than he managed during the whole of the last campaign (3). The rest are here...

The Circus That Is TEVEZ and the Good News He Is Coming To Malaysia

Madu tualang power! Click here
In the words of Didier Drogba, "you are a f@#!$&g disgrace!"

Tevez is a good player. Hardworking and he risks his balls on the pitch. Small wonder he is the favourite to the stands. Be it at the Old Trafford or Maine Road.

But recent development has created a furore in the footballing fraternity. Some people in England are baying for his blood.

Scholes knows better, been there done that. He has sympathy for Tevez and he knows how it feels to be given  a turn-around by the gaffer. Tevez was City's top scorer last season, but why is he warming the bench these days? He is a world class footballer and every world class footballer wants to play no matter how many tons of money they have. Was Mancini trying to get back to Tevez for handing a transfer request previously?

Tevez has been gagged from speaking to the press, fined two weeks' wages and the possibility of being banished to train with the reserves like Robbie Savage opines. That will punish him to the core.

Neil Warnock wants him out of England. That's it, Tevez wins. Ha ha ha. And he can play in Malaysia!!

And he can see majestically built but empty stadiums purposely constructed to pay hefty electricity bills. He can get his arse sore laughing knowing a stadium roof collapsed months after completion. And he can enjoy playing in the rain because our pitch will be like a 'sawah padi' due to poor drainage.

Worse, he will scratch his head knowing that football here is governed by people who got nothing to do at all with football. People who are better rest in the armchair at home scratching their scrotum! Ha ha ha!!

Top 10 Football Superstitions

Madu tualang power! Click here
10) Gary Lineker
The jug-eared former penalty box predator and BBC TV's face of the World Cup never, ever struck a ball towards goal during the pre-match warm-up, fearing it would 'use up all his good shots'.

9) John Terry
The Chelsea captain has revealed that he has “about 50” superstitions, which include listening to the same Usher CD, using the same urinal at Stamford Bridge and taking the same seat on the Chelsea team bus. He also claims to have used the same shinpads throughout his career before he misplaced them after a Champions League tie with Barcelona in 2005. "Those shin-pads had got me to where I was in the game,” Terry revealed.

8) Roy Hodgson
Baggies boss Hodgson claims that during a winning run he would wear the same clothes, right down to his socks and underpants. Woy's stint at Liverpool turned out to be one of the most expensive of his career as he was forced to get a new suit for virtually every game.

7) David James
As befits a goalkeeper, England's current No.1 has a couple of odd pre-match 'must dos'. Bristol City's resident artist and philosopher has admitted to not speaking to anyone before kick-off. as well as waiting for the urinals to empty of players before he enters and spits on the wall. Classy.

6) Bobby Moore
England's 1966 World Cup winning skipper would never put his shorts on until the rest of the team had done so. His fellow West Ham and Three Lions colleague Martin Peters caught onto Moore's unique superstition and would wait for him to put on his shorts... before then dropping his own. Moore responded by removing his shorts once again and waiting patiently for Peters to pull his up. Footballers, eh? Such larks...

5) Malvin Kamara
Former Huddersfield striker Kamara recently conceded that in an attempt to maintain his goalscoring form, he would watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory to “get him in the right mood.” After netting a less than impressive three goals in 45 appearances, the player was released and now plays his football for non-league AFC Guiseley. Maybe give James and the Giant Peach a try Malvin?

4) Romeo Anconetani
Former Pisa president Romeo Anconetani, renowned for his eccentric ways, had an unusual pre-match superstition. Before every one of his side’s games the Italian would throw salt onto the pitch. And the bigger the game, the more salt he would throw. In one particularly important match against local rivals Cesena, Anconetani distributed a staggering 26kg of salt on the pitch. Maybe the Wembley groundsman should try it?

3) Neil Warnock
During a winning run, the QPR gaffer will stop his car at every set of traffic lights on his way home. Even if they are green. You'd be thrilled if you were following him home, wouldn't you?

2) Sergio Goycochea
Former Argentinian goalkeeper Goycochea will be best remembered for how he dealt with the dreaded penalty shoot-out. The South American stopper would urinate on the pitch to calm himself before the commencement of the spot-kicks. He said: “If you have any natural urges, you have to go on the field. I was very subtle and nobody complained.”

1) Carlos Bilardo - The Nuttest!
If you thought Argentina legend Diego Maradona was bonkers, then how about this from one of his predecessors as coach of the national team. Bilardo guided the Albiceleste to World Cup glory in 1986 in remarkable fashion. He banned his players from eating chicken, believing it brought bad luck, carried a statue of the Virgin Mary to every match and insisted that newlywed brides were the key to success. And they were among the more normal of his superstitions...

During the group stages in Mexico, the Argentinian bus broke down on their way to a match - resulting in the team having to take taxis to the game. The Argentinians duly won, resulting in Bilardo making a direct correlation between the mode of transport and the victory. And that meant the team continued to flag down taxis before each game for the rest of the tournament.

But Bilardo's bonkers beliefs didn't end when he left international management. During his time as coach of Estudiantes La Plata in 2003, a Brazilian woman wished him good luck ahead of a crucial game. After winning the match 4-1, Bilardo then instructed club officials to track down the woman before each game, and he would call her in order to secure any luck that might be going spare.

Lionel Messi & Bojan Krkic Are Distant Cousins

Madu tualang power! Click here
via http://www.whoateallthepies.tv

Apparently it’s ‘common knowledge’ that Lionel Messi and former Barca striker Bojan Krkic (now of Roma) are related somewhere back along the line, but those plucky bods over in the genealogy research department of Catalan newspaper Segre have been busying themselves, tracing the lineage of both players and have now put their finger on just what the relationship is between the pair.

This ‘ere is the rag’s findings – in time-honoured ‘family tree’ format…

It seems that Messi and Bojan’s great-great-grandfathers were brothers in the Catalan village of Pla d’Urgell in the middle of the 19th century, thus making them distant cousins of one form or another – put it this way, it’s probably important that they don’t mate any time soon.

More over, does this prove the existence of the mystical ‘Barca DNA’? Maybe Xavi wasn’t being such a complete cock all along vis-a-vis Cesc Fabregas? Maybe the gene pool at that club is actually shallower than a chance meeting between Paris Hilton and Jordan at the shallow end of the world’s shallowest swimming pool?

Or maybe he was just being a cock.

Whilst Werner knew more about English football, particularly United.

“I had been in sports so I was aware of the EPL and its strength globally,” said Werner. “But I didn’t know the inner workings of it. I certainly knew about Manchester United.

The Other Side: Steve Jobs the Tyrant

Madu tualang power! Click here
Dicedok dari: http://gawker.com


In the days after Steve Jobs' death, friends and colleagues have, in customary fashion, been sharing their fondest memories of the Apple co-founder. He's been hailed as "a genius" and "the greatest CEO of his generation" by pundits and tech journalists. But a great man's reputation can withstand a full accounting. And, truth be told, Jobs could be terrible to people, and his impact on the world was not uniformly positive.

We mentioned much of the good Jobs did during his career earlier. His accomplishments were far-reaching and impossible to easily summarize. But here's one way of looking at the scope of his achievement: It's the dream of any entrepreneur to effect change in one industry. Jobs transformed half a dozen of them forever, from personal computers to phones to animation to music to publishing to video games. He was a polymath, a skilled motivator, a decisive judge, a farsighted tastemaker, an excellent showman, and a gifted strategist.

One thing he wasn't, though, was perfect. Indeed there were things Jobs did while at Apple that were deeply disturbing. Rude, dismissive, hostile, spiteful: Apple employees—the ones not bound by confidentiality agreements—have had a different story to tell over the years about Jobs and the bullying, manipulation and fear that followed him around Apple. Jobs contributed to global problems, too. Apple's success has been built literally on the backs of Chinese workers, many of them children and all of them enduring long shifts and the specter of brutal penalties for mistakes. And, for all his talk of enabling individual expression, Jobs imposed paranoid rules that centralized control of who could say what on his devices and in his company.

Like Adebayor, TEVEZ Is Another Mancini Victim

Madu tualang power! Click here
Carlos Tevez upset City fans and the club during the summer when he handed in a transfer request and vowed on an Argentinean chat show to never return to Manchester again describing it as ‘small and wet’.

But the extraordinary scenes against Bayern Munich were something else. There is so much you can take from one play but surely this will be its final straw. As much as City heavily relied on Carlos Tevez last season and probably wouldn’t have had the success they had, had he not played last season, it cannot be condoned and taken lightly this predicament he has left himself in.

TEVEZ Haters Are Hypocrites With Very Very Short Memories

Carlos Tevez’s alleged refusal to come on as a substitute in Manchester City’s 2-0 defeat at the Allianz Arena has sparked enormous pontificating throughout the football world.

Pundits, managers and journalists all rush to blurt of the first thing that pops into their heads without knowing all the facts. But could it just have been a clash of personalities between two very fiery characters?

After all Roberto Mancini is no stranger to a good temper tantrum. During his playing days at Sampdoria he threatened to walk off the pitch because he was not awarded a penalty.

Great C. Ronaldo FREE-KICKS In Manchester United Colours

Madu tualang power! Click here
The best - January 2008 vs Portsmouth at Old Trafford.

Yes it’s true, I love Ronaldo, but honestly despite his defection to Real Madrid, what’s not to love? The lad was just pure dynamite, a hurricane, a tsunami and probably the most skilled player of the past twenty years. His free kick gem vs Portsmouth in 2008 makes it to number one on my list because I have never seen anything like it from anyone ever. 

 I spoke how Beckham’s goal defied logic and physics; well this one defies physics and gravity. It’s not as difficult a shot from it’s angle as it was straight on but the hit defies the laws of physics and gravity and aerodynamics in the manner of it’s flight path and velocity. Most free kicks tend to bend one way or the other. The nature of the ball and the angle of the foot on contact pretty much ensure a ball flies right or left. On occasion if hit properly it can fly right or left and dip or even rise but I have never seen a free kick hit straight that rose and then dipped like a a knuckleball pitch in baseball. The ball had no spin like a knuckleball pitch and so it was controlled by velocity and the air currents it was fighting. And what a wondrous strike it was. 28 Yards out and hit like a Howitzer it flew through the air and completely froze the Portsmouth keeper on the day David James. It made the score 2-0 United, which is how the game ended. 

Not the most important free kick ever taken or at the most opportune time but it was a vital goal in a tight contest nonetheless. But nothing can take away from the quality of the strike as it goes down as the finest free kick I have ever seen taken and believe me I have seen a lot in my 40 years of watching this fine game. It may not make your list at number one but it has to make the list nonetheless. For me it epitomizes power and audacity as well as imagination and unparalleled physical talent. Ronaldo and that kick are both one in a billion.

The OLDEST Living Thing in the World?

Dicedok dari: http://iheartphotograph.blogspot.com


La Llareta (up to 3,000 years old, Atacama Desert, Chile)


Welwitschia Mirabilis (2,000 years old; Namib Naukluft Desert, Namibia)


Underground Forest (up to 13,000 years old; Pretoria, South Africa)


The oldest living things in the world (OLTW) is a project in process by the American photographer Rachel Sussman in which she searches, visits and photographs "continuously living organisms 2000 years old and older". She also says: 'I am trying to create a means in which to step outside our quotidian experience of time and to start to consider a deeper timescale." It's also interesting to just read about this different living things as they all are somewhat odd and extraordinary.

'Flying carpet' of conductive plastic takes flight.

A miniature magic carpet made of plastic has taken flight in a laboratory at Princeton University.

The 10-cm sheet of smart transparency is driven by "ripple power"; waves of electrical current flex a thin, 10cm sheet, driving thin pockets of air from front to rear underneath.

The prototype, described in Applied Physics Letters, moves at speeds of around a centimetre per second.

Improvements to the design could raise that to as much as a metre per second.

The device's creator, graduate student Noah Jafferis, says he was inspired by a mathematical paper he read shortly after starting his PhD studies at Princeton.

He abandoned what would have been a fashionable project printing electronic circuits with nano-inks for one that seemed to have more in common with 1001 Nights than 21st-Century engineering.

Rare Earth Plant in Malaysia May be Closer to Opening

Madu tualang power! Click here
Rare earths mining and processing is difficult, expensive and rarely ecologically friendly. It produces enormous quantities of wastewater, requires vast amounts of energy, uses toxic materials in the refining process and can produce radioactive materials with half-lives of hundreds of years. The United States closed its rare earths mining operations in California’s Mojave Desert in the 1990s because of the environmental cost.
In the 1980s, Mitsubishi Chemical established a plant in an area called Bukit Merah west of Ipoh. For the last two decades, both Mitsubishi and Malaysia have paid the price in terms of deaths of workers from leukemia, and environmental cleanup that so far has cost US$99.2 million and still hasn’t been completed.

Spell-Checker Takes Battering As Okocimski Brzesko’s Dawid Mieczkowski Scores Pathetic Own-Goal vs Slask Wroclaw.


By Chris Wright


Some truly pap ‘action’ from the Polish Cup now, as Okocimski Brzesko defender Dawid Mieczkowski etches his name on the scoresheet after only 36 seconds of their game against Slask Wroclaw, lobbing into his own net from 25-yards – though frankly, we reckon ‘keeper Michal Oswiecimka deserves the lion’s share of the post-match kicking for his feeble attempts to rectify the situation…

Nasi Ayam PERFECTO MIX

Madu tualang power! Click here
I think after sampling various kind of nasi ayam from numerous stalls offering one, I have perfected the art of buying nasi ayam. Over the years, we (me and my wife) know which stall offers tastier soup, juicer chicken, thicker ketchup, fresher lettuce so on and so forth.

Whenever we fancy nasi ayam for lunch or dinner, we take the route very least travelled i.e it involves three different stops to three nasi ayam stall.

Normally, we would first stop at d'Santap which situated near the golfing range at Jalan Genting Klang. Here we found the soup is much better than the rest. Not so much Ajinomoto. You know la Ajinomoto can cause severe baldness! Ha ha. So at the d'Santap we got our soup and ketchup fix.

Then we will proceed to one unnamed stall along unnamed road nearby Pasar Uptown Setapak. Here the nasi is excellent. The grain is longer and softer. Like Gardenia ads, 'You can eat it on its own' la, you know what I mean? I believe the stall owner is using better grade of rice for this purpose. The sambal also good, not sweet like those Kelantanese sambal my wife use to dish out for me. You know la lots of sugar means lots of fat will be stored around your midriff.

Our last stop will be at Medan Selera Melawati, here the chicken cuts is the best from the rest. It seems juicer and less oily. I've been frequenting this stall since the price was RM2 per pack, now it has ballooned to RM4! But people will keep on coming if your stuff is that good. Legend has it that once upon a time, 800 birds were sold per day. You do the Math, one bird means 8 pack of nasi ayam. 8 x 800 birds? That was during the sudden influx of Indonesian labourer to Taman Melawati and the surrounding area. Though these days the number of customers has dropped a bit, business remains as usual. So here we have acquired our last ingredient (the lettuce also fresher here) of our own Nasi Ayam Perfecto Mix!
Licking good!

Eating nasi ayam is like eating nasi lemak. You know it is not good to consume it on a regular basis, but the temptation...

But then again, our motto is 'EAT NOW, WORRY LATER!!'

KAH KAH KAH!
