First year students to get 100 units of ASM

12:50 AM by Afzairulzailey · 0 comments

KUALA LUMPUR: Some 50,000 fresh undergraduates of local public institutions of higher learning will get 100 units of the newly launched Amanah Saham 1Malaysia.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced the incentives at the launch of the new trust fund, which has a size of 10 billion units, with each unit going at RM1.

Amanah Saham 1Malaysia is the biggest trust fund in the country, and will go on sale from Aug 5.

“As a special consideration, the government has agreed that every student that enrolled in public institutions of higher learning, who are in their first year this year, will receive 100 units of Amanah Saham 1Malaysia for free,” he said.

The students eligible are those who had enrolled for their first degree recently in the mid-year intake.

“As they represent the country’s future, we want to see the young generation obtain education, at least up to a degree, so that they become citizens who are visionaries and progressive,” he said.

The free units for the students, totaling RM5mil, were contributed by Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB) agents - Malayan Banking Berhad, CIMB Bank Berhad, RHB Bank Berhad and Pos Malaysia Berhad.

To ensure that the units were fairly distributed, Najib said that for the first 30 days of sale (Aug 5 to Sept 3), 50% of the units had been allocated to Bumiputras, 30% to the Chinese, 15% to the Indians and 5% to other races.

In the 30-day period, the maximum investment for an investor below 55 is 50,000 units, while investors above 55 can purchase a maximum of 100,000 units.

After the period, the cap on purchase on unsold units would be lifted, and the sale would be open to all Malaysians above 18, regardless of race.

Najib said he was confident the units would be sold out fast, citing Amanah Saham Malaysia which sold out within 45 minutes after its opening in 2006.

“With a fund size of 10 billion, Amanah Saham 1Malaysia will be able to boost the equity market and act as a catalyst to the country’s economy,” he said.

Investors can buy the units at ASNB offices and post offices from 8am to 5pm from Aug 5, and at Maybank, CIMB Bank and RHB Bank during the operating hours of the banks.

Selangor exco’s aide falls to death (Update 4)

2:19 PM by Afzairulzailey · 0 comments

SHAH ALAM: The aide to a Selangor state executive council (exco) member who was assisting the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in an investigation was found dead at Plaza Masalam, nine floors below the MACC office.

A janitor found the body of Teoh Beng Hock, 30, the political secretary of Sri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah, sprawled on the fifth floor of the 20-storey building at about 1:30pm on Thursday.

Teoh was taken to the MACC office at 6pm on Wednesday to assist in the graftbusting agency’s investigation into the alleged abuse of constituency development funds by several state assemblymen.

The Plaza Masalam building where Teoh fell to his death.

MACC officers had earlier that day raided Ean Yong’s office at the state secretariat building, seizing a desktop computer belonging to the state government and a laptop computer belonging to Teoh.

MACC director of investigation Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull said Teoh -- a former journalist with Sin Chew Daily -- was released at about 3:45am on Thursday after his officers had finished recording his statement.

He said Teoh did not go back but was seen loitering in the building and had asked to rest for a while at the pantry.

“No one saw him after that until we were alerted that a body had been found on the fifth floor at about 1:30pm,” he said, adding that Teoh was a witness in the MACC investigation.

The MACC office, located on the 14th floor of the building, does not have any CCTVs installed.

Selangor Chief Police Officer Deputy Comm Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar, who was present at the scene on Thursday evening, said police would be interviewing the people who were last seen with Teoh.

“There is not going to be any cover-up in this investigation, and I assure the public and his family that we will conduct a thorough investigation into his death.

“We have requested for a private as well as a government pathologist to be present and assist us in our investigations,’’ he said.

Since Tuesday, the MACC has raided the offices and service centres of several assemblymen, including Ean Yong and Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San.

Others under investigation are Teresa Kok (Kinrara assemblyman), Elizabeth Wong (Bukit Lanjan), Dr Cheah Wing Yin (Damansara Utama), Edward Lee (Bukit Gasing) and Hannah Yeoh (Subang Jaya).

Thorough and open investigation
DAP leaders asked for a thorough investigation into Teoh’s death.

Party deputy chairman Dr Tan Seng Giaw said the incident should not have happened and that the police must investigate the case.

”It is a sad thing,” he told reporters after attending a Public Accounts Committee hearing in KUALA LUMPUR on Thursday.

DAP publicity secretary Tony Pua said the MACC should be held responsible for Teoh’s death since he was under its care.

”Whatever it is, he was under its (MACC’s) care. It was going on a fishing expedition when (conducting investigation on DAP state assemblymen),” he said.

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said the MACC should stop its “political persecution” of Pakatan Rakyat members, especially DAP leaders and members, that does not serve the interest of fighting corruption.

“Such political games have caused the loss of life of a bright young idealistic DAP member,” said Lim, who is also Chief Minister of Penang.

“There must be full transparency and accountability,” he said.

Lim said the party extended its condolences to Teoh’s family for the tragic loss and assured them that all steps would be taken to ensure that the culprits responsible be punished.

New design RM50 note issued

2:18 PM by Afzairulzailey · 0 comments

KUALA LUMPUR: Bank Negara issued the new design RM50 banknote yesterday that incorporates various modern and innovative security features aimed at deterring counterfeiting.

“This new design of RM50 banknote is the first denomination of the fourth series of Malaysian currency notes, which will be replacing the existing series in stages,” the central bank said in a statement here.

Freshly minted: The new note has improved security features to deter counterfeiting. The reverse side of the note is shown above.

It said the existing RM50 banknote design series would continue to remain legal tender and would co-circulate with the new notes and would be gradually phased out. No time limit had been set on the duration of co-circulation, it added.

The enhanced security features incorporated in the new design include the colour-shifting security thread which replaces the existing security thread and is embedded in the paper.

The thread appears on the reverse side of the note as coloured intermittent lines. — Bernama

China dismisses accusation of Xinjiang genocide

4:02 AM by Afzairulzailey · 0 comments

BEIJING (Reuters) - China on Tuesday dismissed Turkey's accusation of genocide in its northwestern Muslim region of Xinjiang, where rioting killed 184 people, mostly majority Han Chinese.


In Xinjiang's worst ethnic violence in decades, Uighurs on July 5 attacked Han in the regional capital Urumqi after police tried to break up a protest against fatal attacks on Uighur workers at a factory in south China.

Han Chinese launched revenge attacks two days later.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said last week genocide was being committed in Xinjiang and called on Chinese authorities to intervene.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said on Tuesday the accusation of genocide simply did not make sense. Most people who died in the riots were Han and over the past few decades the Uighur population in Xinjiang had shot up, he said.

"In which country could this be called genocide?" Qin told a regular news briefing.

"We hope that our Muslim brothers can realise the truth of the July 5 incident in Urumqi. Once they know the truth, they would support our ethnic and religious policies and the measures the Chinese government has taken to deal with the incident."

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi told his Turkish counterpart by telephone on Sunday the Urumqi riots were a grave crime orchestrated by the "three evil forces", Xinhua news agency said, referring to extremism, separatism and terrorism.

In an editorial headlined "Don't twist facts", the English-language China Daily said the fact 137 of the 184 victims were Han "speaks volumes for the nature of the event".

The death toll included 46 Uighurs, a Turkic people who are largely Muslim and share linguistic and cultural bonds with Central Asia.

The newspaper urged Erdogan to "take back his remarks ... which constitute interference in China's internal affairs".

Turkey has sought to boost ties with China, the world's third-biggest economy. President Abdullah Gul last month became the first Turkish president to visit China in 15 years, signing $1.5 billion worth of trade deals, according to Turkish media.

Gul also visited Xinjiang during his trip.

Turkish nationalists see Xinjiang as the easternmost frontier of Turkic ethnicity. Thousands of Uighurs live in Turkey.

Xinjiang has long been a tightly controlled hotbed of ethnic tensions, fostered by an economic gap between Uighurs and Han, government controls on religion and culture and an influx of Han migrants. Uighurs make up almost half of Xinjiang's 20 million people, but are a minority in the regional capital Urumqi.

More than 1,600 people were wounded and 1,000 detained in an ensuing crackdown.

On Monday, police shot dead two knife-wielding Uighurs and wounded a third to stop them from attacking a fourth Uighur, a security guard at a mosque in Urumqi.

Also on Monday, officials in Yining city, about 700 km west of Urumqi, announced that more than 70 members of two "violent gangs" had been rounded up, the semi-official China News portal (www.chinanews.com.cn) reported.

Beijing does not want to lose its grip on Xinjiang, a vast desert territory that borders Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, has abundant oil reserves and is China's largest natural gas-producing region.

China has blamed the ethnic unrest on exiled Uighur separatists. They deny the charges.

If we chose WordPress as a basic tool for many of our sites, it is more time saving than by choice now. Indeed, there are hundreds of content managers, the most complete, at the base. It seems to me that WordPress is not quite a true content management. It’s more a publishing tool on the Internet, fast efficient and cheap.

Publicly downloadable sources are clean (there’s worse).
This guarantees a minimum of reading.
The code is a little documented.
The code is made by professionals and amateurs, not tinkering too much visible.
* Plugins.
The product manages plugins which greatly simplifies the changes for users who do not wish to touch the source code of WordPress. Sulumits Retsambew.

How To Hack Facebook Account ?

7:39 AM by Afzairulzailey · 0 comments

Hi..I'm not a hacker but,I just found this video from youtube about hack facebook account that called hacker (lamers/crackers) basic tutorial video, in my opinion hacking is not easy ,from the most definition of hacking is the act of gaining access without legal authorization to a computer or computer network. A hacker first attacks an easy target, and then uses it to hide his or her traces for launching attacks at more secure sites. The goal of an attack is to gain complete control of the system [and so you can edit, delete, install, or execute any file in any user’s directory], often by gaining access to a "super-user" account. This will allow both maximum access and the ability to hide your presence, and for newbie hackers needed to be very knowledgeable so that they were able to identify bugs themselves and often write their own programs to exploit them. They had to keep track of the leading developments in the field ,ex :latest bugs, latest patches, latest bugs in the patches, and others... use?

Blogger ? , Jobless ? , Fulltime Blogger ?

Going full-time with blogging is exactly what I am going to do.
I committed to the effort months ago and continue to march toward
that end. Many will find the sound of this very attractive, but should
realize that this is a firm commitment to working hard and long hours
for many months while you are building your brand. In the end however,
the rewards realized with positioning yourself to work a few hours daily
and to create projects of your choosing will make the initial uphill climb
well worth it. Many bloggers will come and go, particularly those who think
this will be fast and easy, but in the end the blogosphere will be loaded
with quality professionals.
