PAC Recommends KLIA2 Full Audit

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) recommended that a full and through audit on KLIA2 should be done by the Auditor-General. PAC chairman Datuk Nur Jazian Mohamed had asked the government to order a full audit of the construction of KLIA2 after the committee had found irregularities in the project. The irregularities also included the costs which had increased from RM1.7bil to RM4bil. “Normally, the PAC initiates investigations based on the findings of the A-G’s Report. However, the PAC decided to scrutinise the project following many negative reports on KLIA2 on the grounds of public interest,” Nur Jazlan said this Tuesday. He also said Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), which directly funded the project, was not “customer centric” according to The Star. “They should be building airports based on what the people...

Joint Task Force 636 raised on 1 November

A new task force has taken command of Australian forces in Afghanistan following the formation of Joint Task Force 636 (JTF636) on 1 November. JTF 636 now commands Australia’s Defence personnel in Afghanistan including those working in mentoring roles with the Afghan National Army and soldiers on force protection duties. Maj-Gen David Mulhall, Commander JTF 636, said the task force represented a new way of operating. “It is a time of change, it’s more than creating a new name and a new flag,” he said. “It’s a different approach to doing things here in Afghanistan as we transition into Operation HIGHROAD, Australia’s commitment to the post-2014 NATO-led Resolute Support mission. “As we focus exclusively on Afghanistan we’ll be building on the success of those people who’ve come before us.” {ads1}Australia’s role in supporting the NATO led...

Anderson questions proposed terror exclusion plan in new counter-terror bill

The government's independent reviewer of terrorism laws, David Anderson QC has questioned a proposed plan in the recently announced counter-terrorism and security bill on Wednesday which aims to exclude British terror suspects from the U.K. if they go abroad to fight with extremist groups. Home Secretary Theresa May has introduced the fresh bill today that is designed to crack down on Britons wanting to travel to Syria and Iraq to fight, and to prevent veterans of those conflicts from returning unless they agree to comply with the authorities under Temporary Exclusion Orders. Ms May has indicated that the proposed measures aim to minimise the terrorism risk to the lowest level of threat posed to Britain. {ads1}However, Mr Anderson has claimed that the new anti-terror laws are “nothing like as dramatic” as proposed earlier this year...

Is Russia Deliberately Provoking the West?

Is Russia Deliberately Provoking the West?

During the spring of 2014, much of the world's attention was drawn to the crisis in Ukraine. While news of the conflict has been relegated to the back pages of the mainstream media, the situation  over the past six months is far from "peaceful" and far from "routine".  The Ukraine conflict has led to a significant increase in military tensions between Russia, its NATO counterparts and particularly Finland and Sweden.  A policy brief, "Dangerous Brinkmanship" by the European Leadership Network (ELN) examines both the intensity and gravity of incidents that have occurred between Western and Russian military forces since Russia annexed Crimea.  On top of what are considered relatively routine encounters, there have been some serious incidents that could be looked at as highly provocative.  All of hese incidents have...

Parliament Returns To Black Money Debate

The Parliament this Thursday is all set to resume to the crucial debate about black money. The debate was triggered when the NDA government under Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced severe criticism for not fulfilling his promise of quickly bringing back black money that is stacked in foreign accounts abroad. The government finally decided to discuss the issue in both houses. It is expected that the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will speak in the Lok Sabha this Thursday, commenting on the issue. The Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, while speaking in the Parliament this Wednesday, said that the NDA government will pro-actively chase the offenders and not stop till the last account is identified. Zeen News further informed that the Finance Minister also disclosed that 250 account holders out of... Read more

Don’t Let Iran Walk Away From the Table

Middle East, Tuesday, November 25th 2014

Don’t Let Iran Walk Away From the Table

As a November 24 deadline looms for a nuclear deal with Iran, some influential voices in Washington—including President Obama’s former Iran adviser Dennis Ross—have argued that “muddling through” without an agreement, postponing things yet again, is preferable to signing an imperfect deal. The premise of that argument—that we all still have time, and a better deal could be achieved at a later date—is almost certainly wrong. It fails to recognize that Iran and other nations would react in ways that are beyond the control of U.S. policymakers. The evidence suggests, in fact, that failure to conclude a deal now will see Iran’s position grow less accommodating, while Western leverage through sanctions will decline dramatically. Putting off a deal yet again would, in fact, produce a perilous slide back towards crisis and confrontation. To... Read more

The arrested fishermen were transferred to Docks police station of Karachi during the early hours of Friday. The Karachi police have registered a case against those fishermen for entering Pakistan illegally. The Indian fishermen have said they entered Pakistani waters unintentionally... Read more

Soros Signals Argentina’s Shale is Biggest Place to Be

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both supermajors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key shale play.  Argentina holds an estimated 27 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil and 802 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas, much of it located in the Vaca Muerta, an...

Hindus commend Pope for highlighting “aloofness” of Europe

South Asians Abroad, Friday, November 28th 2014

Hindus have commended His Holiness Pope Francis for highlighting “aloofness” of Europe in his address to European Parliament (EP) in Strasbourg (France) on November 25. “Europe seems to give the impression of being somewhat elderly and haggard, feeling less and less a protagonist in a world which frequently regards it with aloofness, mistrust and even, at times, suspicion”, Pope stated. {ads1}Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, also lauded Pope for speaking in EP about abandoned elderly, against “uncontrolled consumerism”, highlighting “respect for the dignity of the human person”, stressing unity in diversity, avoiding “ethical systems lacking kindness”, backing “respect nature” and “restore dignity to labour”, and saying “We cannot allow the Mediterranean to become a vast cemetery!” and “building a Europe which revolves not around the...

Dwane Casey Named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month

The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday that head coach Dwane Casey has been named NBA Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for December. This is the first time Casey has won the honour.

Toronto went 8-6 in December under Casey’s guidance and was one of five teams in the Eastern Conference to finish the month with a record above .500.

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months. With training camps now getting into full swing, all eyes will be on these recovering stars, whose health is critical to their teams’ success in the upcoming NFL season. Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton underwent surgery in late March to repair an ankle injury suffered in the Panthers’ 23-10 NFC Divisional Playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers. While Newton has undergone extensive rehab prior to training camp, and is medically cleared for full workouts, he is expected to need all of camp to regain his form ahead of the start of the regular season. Last season, Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and their first NFC South title since 2008.... Read more

CBC Says It Will Bury Disabled Journalist – What Do You Think?

The CBC President authorizes lawyers to bury human rights complaint in legal fees By Stephen Pate – I want to crowd source some legal advice with your help. This month I made a settlement offer to the CBC in my 5-year-old human rights complaint.  It is a pain in the keyster to be going to court. It distracts me from music, books and fun which are my main concerns, other than surviving my heart attack. The CBC rejected my offer and threatened, like Nikita Khrushchev at the UN, to bury me in thousands of $$$ of their legal costs. The CBC doesn’t intend to pay one cent for taking away my livelihood for 5 years. “We will bury you”, you can almost imagine people in Montreal hear Hubert Lacroix the CBC CEO / President screaming from his posh...

A conference held by Edge Hill University’s Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE) on 4 and 5 September will discuss what ‘independence’ means for and within Liverpool’s creative and cultural sectors. Paddy Hoey, Lecturer in Media at the University said: “Liverpool has always prided itself on standing alone from the rest of Britain like a cultural island of itself. We want to explore what sets Liverpool artists and musicians apart and the prospects of this continuing in an era of globalisation.” A panel of media and cultural experts will explore the roots of the city’s political and cultural independence and the role that the independent sector can play in Liverpool’s regeneration.

Honda does good, openly helps Android Auto

In a highly uncharacteristic move for an automaker, Honda has announced that they will be actively supporting third party software developers creating apps for Android Auto through a new facility in California.

The freshly minted Google owned operating system (OS)  is capable of running on a wide range of auto brands including future vehicles from Chevrolet, Audi, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, Jeep, Mazda, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan, Volkswagen, Volvo, Subaru, Bentley and Mitsubishi amoungst others.

Arabic YA: Is It Possible to Intrigue Young Adults Without Upsetting Gatekeepers?

“Young adult” readers of Arabic literature, by demographic rights, should be the biggest and most voracious audience for new books. Some young adults are driving the success of books like Essam Youssef’s1/4 Gram, a novel based on a true story of drug use, and Ahmed Mourad’sInternational Prize for Arabic Fiction-shortlisted thriller Blue Elephant. Others are buying adult comics like Pass By Tomorrow and TokTok, or “shallow romantic stories or books written by social-media celebrities.” Many others are reading YA in English or translated from the English. What most aren’t reading is literature written in Arabic for young adults. There are a group of authors working to jump-start an organic, fast-paced, compelling Arabic YA, but they face a difficult situation, as discussed in “YA fiction treads carefully in Arab world, which opens: The boom in young adult fiction has left the Arab publishing world playing catch-up, as authors try to compete with...

Survivors’ physical limitations rapidly increase over decade following heart attack and stroke; many face disability, depression and caregiver reliance University of Michigan, ANN ARBOR, Mich. — A record number of people are surviving heart attacks and stroke but those who do may experience a sharp decline in physical abilities that steadily accelerates over time, according to a new nationally-representative study led by the University of Michigan.

Stroke survivors also appeared to be at a higher risk of depression and mental declines, including memory loss.

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

Follow The Sand To The Real Fracking Boom

When it takes up to four million pounds of sand to frack a single well, it’s no wonder that demand is outpacing supply and frack sand producers are becoming the biggest behind-the-scenes beneficiaries of the American oil and gas boom. Demand is exploding for “frac sand”--a durable, high-purity quartz sand used to help produce petroleum fluids and prop up man-made fractures in shale rock formations through which oil and gas flows—turning this segment into the top driver of value in the shale revolution. “One of the major players in Eagle Ford is saying they’re short 6 million tons of 100 mesh alone in 2014 and they don’t know where to get it. And that’s just one player,” Rasool Mohammad, President and CEO of Select Sands Corporation told Oilprice.com. {ads1}Frack sand exponentially increases the... Read more

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

When you’re all cozy in a friendship you can totally relax. Even going to school is more fun because your friend is there. But when you move to a school where you know no one, and your bff friend from your old school stops acting like a friend, then nothing feels right. I recently got this email from a girl who is in that sad place: Where do I fit it?!  The Girls' Friendship Q&A Book, by Annie Fox, iIllustration by Erica DeChavez © 2014, Annie Fox and Erica DeChavez Hey Terra, Last year I moved to a new place. Later I heard that my best friend was best friends with some new girl. That girl is apparently really popular and cool (and also kinda mean) and in one year’s time my bff has become friends with all the poplar kids... Read more

‘The Shaukeens' Movie Review

A remake of Basu Chatterjee’s 1982 classic comedy filmShaukeen, The Shaukeens, is a feel-good adventure movie that follows three middle-aged men played by Annu Kapoor, Piyush Mishra and Anupam Kher, who venture on a trip to Mauritius, where they meet the sizzling hot Lisa Haydon. The film also features Akshay Kumar in a very interesting special appearance. Akshay plays an important cameo, while Lisa Haydon plays opposite Akshay Kumar. The three main characters of the film, Laali played by Kher, Kapoor as KD and Pinky played by Mishra, want to add a little spice to their boring lives and plan a trip to Mauritius. Akshay, for the first time in his career, will play himself in the film. However, some negative elements have been added to the actor's character. He will be seen as an arrogant and alcoholic superstar. In one such instance, Akshay is seen throwing off his fan's... Read more

Music Review Life Mein Twist Hai

Music :: Filmi, Tuesday, November 25th 2014

Expectations: Minimum - this is a small film with smaller names in the music. Music: Though Javed Ali practically insists, as always, on singing exactly like Sonu Nigam, the two songs he gets in this film, 'Minnat Karta Hu' (the last word should be phonetically spelt 'hoon' but we guess it's too much expect in today's 'chalta hai'-anything goes times!) and 'Bandgi Tum Meri' are among the best songs he has got in recent times. Sonu-mimicking apart, Javed sings them well, and the lyrics (Rashid Kanpuri and Omraj Pandey Om respectively) are standard but well-written. This is - as far as we know - Aryan R. Jaiin's debut film as a composer, and while both the songs merge old-fashioned melody well with contemporary flavours, the former, 'Minnat…', stands out as a lovely and... Read more

The Driving Force Behind the US Oil Boom

The shale revolution’s sweet spot is oilfield services, the lower-risk backbone of the American oil and gas boom that pays off regardless of a play’s economics. Behind the stardom of the explorers and producers who have put themselves on the revolutionary shale map and absorb most of the risk—are the service providers who make up a highly lucrative market segment. The US land-based rig count rose 3% over the last quarter, reaching a two-year high of 1,870 active rigs. A major factor... Read more
