Change the Driver, Save Malaysia!

Posted: 03 Apr 2012 09:08 PM PDT


In a televised speech last Monday, Prime Ninister Najib Razak boasted about a slew of achievements and ongoing measures under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). 

In spite of all that, he still does not dare to accept Pakatan Rakyat's  challenge of an public debate with Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim. This just goes to show that the Prime Minister's so-called "achievements" cannot stand up to scrutiny.
 
A few days ago, Najib called upon Malaysians not to change the "driver" of the country's transformation agenda when it is already halfway to its destination.

On the contrary, for the betterment of Malaysia, we should not only change the driver but also ditch this faulty, petrol-consuming 54-year-old junk of a car so that we don't end up in a fatal car accident!

According to Najib, just two years after the ETP was introduced, the country's per capita income has increased from US$6,700 to to US$9,700!

【念念有辞】让末日预言落空!

3月31日是一年一度的"地球关灯一小时"日,你响应了吗?

不能否认,很多人参与"关灯一小时"是因为感受到气候的异常。可是,当中又有多少是纯粹抱着好玩抑或跟风的心理?

据统计,今年全球共有150国家参与这项已是第六年举行的环保活动。全球有超过22亿人参与,比去年的18亿人大幅增加22%;而城市亦由去年的5,251个,增至6,494个城市,增幅同为22%,创下参加人数和城市的新纪录。单在加拿大便有511个城市响应,多伦多是其中一个。

虽然大众对这项活动的认识不断增加,可是多伦多电力公司(Toronto Hydro)的数据却告诉我们,进行关灯行动的一小时内,多伦多市内电力耗用量仅仅减少6.8%。尽管有关减幅高于去年的5%,但它仍低于2010年所取得的10%减幅,也不及2009年15%减幅的一半。

地球暖化是全球性的问题,已经开始有人将温室效应和世界末日联想在一起。正所谓不见棺材不掉泪,不将温室效应所可能造成的最严重后果绘声绘影的描述出来,很多人都还是保持着乐天的心态无动于衷。可是,加利福尼亚大学心理学教授威勒尔也表示,引述末日论,也可能会有反效果。有人会觉得做不做环保人类都会灭亡,那么干嘛还要白费力气?

除了《温室效应末日论》,大家比较熟悉的可能还有1997年《海尔波普彗星撞地球末日论》、《超级火山爆发末日论》。

当中,《海尔波普彗星》已经安然离开,没有对地球造成任何破坏。可是当时却导致39人选择自杀来逃过末世。不过这还不算最惨烈的例子。1978年,就有918名信奉人民圣殿末日论的人们选择集体自杀,当中有276还是小孩。这是美国历史上死亡人数仅次于911事件的人为悲剧。

还有日本的奥姆真理教,同样是利用人们对末日的恐惧心理,唆使信徒在地铁释放沙林毒气,结果造成12死377伤的惨案。究竟是什么样的无助心理,让人把"杀人积德,末日免死"这种歪理都照吞不误。

法国政府机构曾经统计,从罗马时代到现在,已经出现过183种地球灭亡的预言。值得庆幸的是,绝大部分的末日论都已经落空。温室效应会是下一个挑战,是否它也会和其他末世预言一样落空?那还得看你我的努力了。

Home Ministry's math leaves MP puzzled

Posted: 02 Apr 2012 10:19 PM PDT

A written reply in Parliament to DAP Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching may very well show that something does not add up in the Home Ministry.

The March 29 reply from Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says in 2009, 14 people had died in custody.

But curiously, the 14 "consist of three who died in prison, seven in police custody and 17 at the Immigration depot detention centre".

"I am totally confused after reading the written reply: 14 = 3 + 7 + 17?" Teo (right) asks on her Facebook page, where the written reply is also posted.

The mind-boggling arithmetic continues with the minister noting that 13 people had died in custody in 2010 - that is, "one in prison, nine in police custody and 18 at the Immigration depot detention centre."

Meanwhile, in 2011, it was a case of "17 dead in police custody and 18 at the Immigration depot detention centre" making it a grand total of "21 deaths".

The causes of the deaths were "HIV/AIDS and other diseases such as tuberculosis, Hepatitis C, asthma and heart disease."

Did they use 'Google calculate'?

The written reply, which had been shared by 22 people on Facebook as at yesterday, were met with incredulous comments, with some wondering if the home minister had been using Google Translate to calculate the numbers.

A Facebook user commented: "(The deputy prime minister) just declared that we have the best education, better than UK... YB, you need to calculate again."
