Sue MB Khalid for killing your health

UM study shows mine water contaminated

 | April 29, 2014
Water from mining ponds at Bestari Jaya which Selangor plans to use to overcome the water shortage is toxic.
charles santiago selangor waterPETALING JAYA: Two studies conducted in 2010 and 2012 by Universiti Malaya have shown that water from old mining pools at Bestari Jaya is contaminated with heavy metal.
Klang MP Charles Santiago said Muhammad Ashraf Aqeel, Mohd Jamil and Ismail Yusuf from the chemistry and geology department of Universiti Malaya carried out the study.
“It clearly contradicts the position taken by the Selangor government in allowing water from Bestari Jaya mining ponds to be pumped into Sungai Selangor,” said Santiago.
“Once pumped, the mine pool water will contaminate Sungai Selangor. Our treatment plants cannot treat or clean heavy metal or toxic pollution,” added Santiago.
Selangor exco, Ahmad Yunus Hairi, stated recently that water from the Hang Tuah ponds at Bestari Jaya had passed the “health standard”.
But UM’s 2010 study showed that the physio-chemical parameters and metal concentration in Bestari Jaya exceeds national water quality standards.
The 2012 study showed that old mining pond sediments were polluted with arsenic (8.8%), chromium (12.9%), copper (17.4%), lead (19.5%), zinc (14.9) and tin (33.8%).
“The heavy metal polluted mining pools around Bestari Jaya pose a significant threat to the environment and is a risk to human life,” said Santiago.
“I reiterate my earlier call for the Selangor state government to make public the Health Department’s report and chemical content.
“To date, there is no evidence to show that Bestari Jaya’s old mining ponds were treated in any way since its closure,” added Santiago.
In another development, Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim today urged the Selangor government to stop the water rationing exercise as the water level in the dams in the state had increased.
The Selangor economic advisor also advised the residents of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur to be economical in using water.
The water rationing exercise, which started in stages in March, is scheduled to end on April 30. Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim is to announce tomorrow if the water rationing will continue beyond April 30 or be stopped.
MB Khalid and his tidak apa attitude had already poison the water you drink, yet no-one make police report against him.
Do you want to wait until your children and love one to start dying one by one before you wake up.
Water in mining pools contain high level of mercury.
There is a simple solution to the dry dam and flash flood but everyone is thinking of making fast buck by buying more pump that will be use only one time and discarded once the dam is full again.
The total price for the pump stands at RM25 million.  The stupid pump does not cost that much.  It went into buying vote.

Malaysia Insider
After the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 had gone missing for nearly two months, today an Australian exploration company claimed to have detected the plane's wreckage, reported Star Online.

The news portal reported Adelaide-based GeoResonance as saying it has detected possible wreckage in the Bay of Bengal, 5,000km away from the current search location in the southern Indian Ocean off Perth, Australia.

It had said that its own search for the missing Boeing 777-200ER started on March 10.

GeoResonance’s search covered 2,000,000 square kilometres of the possible crash zone, using images obtained from satellites and aircraft, with company scientists focusing their efforts north of MH370’s last known location, using over 20 technologies to analyse the data including a nuclear reactor, reported Star Online.

“The technology that we use was originally designed to find nuclear warheads, submarines. Our team in the Ukraine decided we should try and help,” said company spokesperson David Pope to the news portal.

Pope was reported as saying, GeoResonance had compared their findings with images taken on March 5, three days before MH370 was reported missing – and they did not find what they had detected at that location.

“The wreckage wasn’t there prior to the disappearance of MH370. We’re not trying to say that it definitely is MH370, however it is a lead we feel should be followed up,” he said to Star Online.

The news portal also reported another GeoResonance spokesperson, Pavel Kursa, as saying that several elements found in commercial airliners was detected at the Bay of Bengal spot.

“We identified chemical elements and materials that make up a Boeing 777… these are aluminium, titanium, copper, steel alloys and other materials,” said Kursa in a statement reported by Australian news channel 7News.

Earlier today, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said that it was highly unlikely any debris would be found on the ocean surface from a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner, and that a new phase would now begin during which a much larger area of the ocean floor would be searched.

How much more shame does Najis want?

Another sink hole in Jalan Tun Razak for the cronies to suck more money

This is not depression as claimed by the authorities.
This is because of the greed of the cronies.
The solution is simple but the authorities just see money.
If the authorities refuse to accept the wisdom of the Rakyat then we can all sink together.
I have a simple solution to the sink holes but does the authorities want the solution.

Who to trust in Selangor water battle?

ALARM bells were rung recently about an impending water crisis in Selangor. The federal government blames the state government for delaying the Pahang-Selangor raw water transfer project by refusing to let building of the Langat 2 water treatment plant begin. TheBarisan Nasional (BN) government says this will result in a water crisis as early as 2014, with shortages to be felt from 2012.
It all comes back to data. And what seems to have been forgotten is that the figures for the project crisis that the federal government arrived at have been contested. A group of non-governmental organisations, the Coalition for Sustainable Water Management (CSWM), has since 2009 alleged that projected water demand is grossly inflated to justify the RM9 billion interstate water transfer project.
In 2009, CSWM called into question the National Water Resources Study 2000-2050, commissioned by the federal Economic Planning Unit (EPU) in 2000. This is the study the federal government is citing to support their argument for the water transfer project. CSWM’s objections are well documented, available online, and have been given to the federal government. Until today, however, Putrajaya hasn’t explained the questions raised by the coalition. Instead, the BN appears bent on pushing the project through.
But who is the consumer supposed to trust, then?

Inflated data?
The federal government should explain the methodology used in the National Water Resources Study. CSWM contends that the recommended method for estimating water demand was not used. This method is adapted from the 1989 Public Works Department (JKR) Design Criteria and Standards for Water Supply Systems, and is endorsed by the Malaysian Water Association (MWA).
Instead, the method used in the National Water Resources Study was to estimate water demand by taking into account several parameters such as future Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, per capita GDP, and manufacturing sector output growth.
CSWM says such a method involving macroeconomic indices involves “unsupported assumptions” in projecting water demand. For one, it does not take into account changes in development plans and unforeseen economic scenarios.
The MWA/JKR method also recommends 320 litres per capita per day (l/c/d) in urban areas as the guideline for estimating water consumption. This rate is calculated from overall water usage by commercial, industrial and domestic use, and includes an estimated loss of 25% due to non-revenue water loss.
However, the EPU’s National Water Resources Study method breaks down water usage by sectors to estimate demand. CWSM argues that making separate projections for domestic, commercial, industrial and non-revenue water results in larger overall figures when projecting demand.
Using the MWA/JKR method would have concluded a projected water demand of 147 l/c/d in the year 2020 for the whole state. The National Water Resources Study method, however, arrived at demand that ranged from 139 to 611 l/c/d for the industrial sector alone.
Using the National Water Resources Study, the Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministryhas asserted that daily demand for water in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya will reach 4,907 million litres. Without the interstate project and the Langat 2 plant, water supply will be 476 million litres short daily in 2014, the ministry claimed.
So is the EPU’s projected demand for water inflated or not? The Selangor government has different projections by which it claims the state has enough water without Pahang’s help until 2019. Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, who said the state is looking at alternative water sources, has been challenged by Selangor Umnopoliticians to justify this position.
Additionally, Water and Energy Consumer Association of Malaysia(Wecam) secretary-general S Piarapakaran says Selangor’s estimate of sufficient supply until 2019 is only true if water demand grows at a rate of 1% a year from now until then. Citing figures from the Malaysian Industry Water Guide, he says water demand growth is expected to be about 3% yearly, based on the 3.4% demand figure between 2007 and 2008.

Piarapakaran (Courtesy of S Piarapakaran)
Piarapakaran, a water engineer, tells The Nut Graph in a phone interview that other flaws in the National Water Resources Study, if rectified, would project an even higher demand for water. Hence, he says there may even be an increased likelihood of a water shortagesooner rather than later.
Three key flaws in the study, he says, were firstly, failure to take into account the worst-case low water flow scenario, which was what happened during the 1997-1998 water crisis aggravated by the El Nino phenomenon. The second flaw was for the study to fix non-revenue water loss at around 20% when the actual rate of loss now is higher at over 30%. And thirdly, the study, in estimating population growth, did not consider the high number of foreign migrants, legal and illegal, living and working in the state.
“The National Water Resources Study as a 50-year study is questionable. When you plan for 50 years for something like water supply and demand, you need to be able to adjust for every five-year planning cycle. This doesn’t seem to have been the case,” Piarapakaran said.
But he also takes issue with CWSM’s assertion that deriving an average l/c/d demand estimate from lumping together sectoral consumption is a better measurement than a breaking down water usage by sector. Piarapakaran thinks it’s less accurate if an overall average figure is used, in the same way gross per capita income is not a true reflection of individual income.
Will there really be a water crisis?
Who is correct? Water supply is an emotive issue and many remember the dry years of 1997-1998. The delay in restructuring Selangor’s water industry, and now the Langat 2 treatment plant under the inter-tate water transfer project, has been politicised to stoke fears of a repeat crisis.
The quality of data and methodology is important, and state and federal governments, as well as water industry players, have to be transparent about what they put into their projections. Selangor is commissioning a new study on water demand.
Compounding the public’s confusion about whether there is an imminent water crisis in Selangor is the standoff between the federal and state governments over the restructuring of four private water concessions.
The restructuring of the state’s water industry is a first step towards averting a near-term crisis, says DAP publicity chief Tony Pua, who also worked on the restructuring plan. He argues that if the state can take over the four water concessionaires – Syabas, Splash, Puncak Niaga and Abbas – and manage a consolidated treatment and supply operation, progress to cut non-revenue water loss can be stepped up.
That’s not likely to happen anytime soon, however. Syabas, for example, claims that Selangor is preventing it from continuing maintenance of pipes pending completion of the restructuring. Pua disagrees, saying the company’s inability to conduct pipe repairs and replacements is due to its cash flow problems, which began even before the restructuring exercise.
“If Syabas wants to resolve its cash flow problems to continue maintenance, they either let the federal government bail them out or accept the Selangor government’s RM5.71 billion takeover offer so the state can continue the work,” Pua tells The Nut Graph.
Right now, the battle over water in Selangor has become a battle of political wills and business interests. At the end of the day, consumers need to know if their tax money is being put to the best use to avert a water crisis. But in order for that to happen, greater transparency is needed on how studies are conducted, on water concession agreements, and on who stands to lose if the Pahang-Selangor water transfer project is delayed. For now, there seems little consumers can do or say to influence the outcome.

MB Khalid is going for home run.

Like many people I notice that MB Khalid is spinning out of control.  Either with intention to hit rock bottom with the RM3 billion at hand or age has finally caught up with him.

Do I blame him or Anwar or the many over intelligent bastards inside PKR (yes, including Nurul?) In fact I do not see any hope in PKR as an alternative to UMNO since their Kajang Screw-up. Had PKR waited just abit longer situation would not have come to this today. But then PKR is noted for its arrogance similar to UMNO.

Now the big issue at hand is WATER.  Water everywhere but no water for human consumption.  WHY?

The real reason is POLITIC. 

Selangor has once again jump into a short term solution by spending RM10 million to feed cronies so that they can put some cheap skate machine to pump water from former tin mines into Sungei Selangor.  Klang MP Charles Santiago rightly pointed out that water from tin mines is not suitable for consumption.  

Water that is not properly treated can lead to LEARNING DISABILITY, MOTOR SKILL IMPAIRMENT AND SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS. This is proven in the State of Selangor since the privatization of water where more than 18% children and adults have such problems.

There is a permanent simple solution to which Selangor Government, Exco, UMNO Cronies and Sultan are against using to solve the water issue in Selangor.  Reason - NO KICK BACK.  If this permanent solution can benefit the people in the long run - of course there is money but not INSTANT.  Yes everyone wants to suck FAST.

Some of you think I know nuts just because I blog.  But there are people like me who can and knows how to solve some of the nation issue by using our GOD GIVEN BRAIN.

The solution to our water is OPEN RETENTION POND SYSTEMS. Natural corridor that provide endless drinking water for people, a place for wildlife to live and fresh air for everyone.


'Acid level high in mine water’
Anjulie Ngan
PETALING JAYA: Using mining pool water as an alternative source is not a good idea because the toxic level is much higher than in rivers, said Klang MP Charles Santiago.
Santiago was commenting on Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim’s decision to use water in mining pools as an alternative source to overcome the shortage now.
“It is not a good option… it has raised health concerns among the public,” he told FMT today.
According to a water treatment plant expert, there is a high chance of heavy metal poisoning in water drawn from mining pools.
“Our treatment plants are not equipped to detect toxic material in water so the possibility of heavy metal poisoning is high,” said the expert who wanted to remain anonymous.
A Geographical Society of Malaysia bulletin said the chemical reaction of sulphide in the rocks produces sulphuric acid that would decrease the pH value of water in mines.
The water in mines is a product of oxidation and hydrolysis on sulfide minerals.
“Toxic water pumped from mines into rivers will pollute the waterways considerably and Selangor can face a health crisis.
“I don’t think it is a good idea to use mining pool water because there are other alternatives to this crisis,” said Santiago.
He said the alternative would be to store rain water to overcome rationing.
Former Selangor state executive councillor Dr Xavier Jeyakumar said previously there were plans to store rain water in Bukit Jelutong, but it was all just talk.
“There was massive planning but nothing to show,” he said.
However, Jeyakumar is all for using of mine water to alleviate Selangor’s water crisis.
Attempts to contact Khalid’s office on this matter proved fruitless.

What are friends for (You help me, I help you)

Dana R&D Disuntik Ke Projek Komersil Yang Tidak Mendapat Keyakinan Bank

Saya sertakan utusan surat-menyurat di antara pemohon (NSE Resources Corporation Malaysia Sdn Bhd) dan Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak lanjutan dari pendedahan semalam bagaimana dana untuk tujuan R&D telah digunakan untuk membiayai projek komersil.

Dari surat ini, saya dapat mengesahkan bahawa:
1. Dato’ Seri Najib memberi arahan sendiri melalui minit supaya permohonan geran RM100 juta yang berlainan dari tujuan geran R&D dipertimbangkan oleh MOSTI
2. Projek yang diusahakan oleh NSE Resources adalah untuk membekalkan stim ke sebuah kilang yang sedang dibina di Kerteh
3. Kontrak pembekalan stim pada harga RM55 satu tan itu adalah satu kontrak swasta yang melibatkan NSE Resources dan pemilik kilang lain tanpa melibatkan sebarang pegangan modal oleh kerajaan, maka sebarang keuntungan akan dimiliki oleh NSE Resources
Perenggan (7) surat dari NSE Resources ini secara jelas menunjukkan bahawa projek komersil ini tidak mendapat dokongan dari institusi kewangan kerana syarikat itu menghadapi kesukaran mendapatkan pinjaman bank. Ini sepatutnya secara serta merta menimbulkan kebimbangan di pihak Dato’ Seri Najib dan kerajaan kerana projek komersil yang tidak melepasi saringan kewangan dari institusi kewangan (seterusnya sukar mendapatkan pinjaman) membayangkan aliran tunai dan kedudukan kewangan yang tidak baik. Secara langsung, ada risiko besar bahawa pulangan dari projek tidak mencukupi untuk membayar balik sebarang dana yang disuntik ke dalam projek ini.
Sewajarnya, Dato’ Seri Najib mengambil sikap tidak campur tangan dan berhati-hati kerana ia melibatkan dana awam sebanyak RM100 juta yang sepatutnya digunakan bagi tujuan R&D. Keputusan beliau memberi saranan kepada Kementerian Sains, Teknologi & Inovasi untuk mempertimbangkan permohonan ini, apatah lagi dalam bentuk geran, adalah satu salahguna dana rakyat yang terang dan nyata.
Pada pendapat saya, projek komersil ini tidak menepati syarat-syarat untuk mendapat geran atau bantuan modal sebesar ini berdasarkan perkara berikut:
1. Teknologi dan perusahaan menghasilkan stim atau syngas dari bahan kayu atau bahan lain bukanlah teknologi terkini atau unik kepada Malaysia. Semakan menunjukkan bahawa boiler yang menggunakan kaedah ini sudah lama dipasarkan (contohnya melalui syarikat . Oleh itu, penghasilan stim atau syngas dari bahan kayu seperti yang diusahakan oleh NSE Resources tidaklah wajar mendapat suntikan dana sebanyak RM100 juta dalam bentuk geran seolah-olah ia teknologi terkini yang akan melonjakkan nama Malaysia, sedangkan ia hanyalah perusahaan biasa yang ada di pasaran.
2. Pembekal stim atau syngas untuk Kawasan Perindustrian Kerteh (yang mana kilang pembeli sedang dibina) sudah pun ada, jadi tidak timbul keperluan kilang stim milik NSE Resources ini menjadi daya tarikan pelaburan di situ. PETRONAS sudah mempunyai satu kilang iaitu Centralised Utilities Facilities (CUF) yang dimiliki oleh PETRONAS Gas yang menghasilkan stim pada kadar 720 tan sejam atau 6.3 juta tan setahun, iaitu 6 kali ganda yang diperlukan oleh kilang baru milik CJ Arkema itu.
Utusan surat-menyurat yang saya bekalkan hari ini secara jelas menunjukkan penglibatan Dato’ Seri Najib yang mengarahkan supaya dana awam RM100 juta diberikan kepada sebuah syarikat untuk mengusahakan projek komersil yang diragui untung ruginya oleh bank-bank.
Saya pasti geran RM100 juta ini tidak melalui proses saringan teknologi oleh panel pakar R&D yang dilantik oleh MOSTI seperti mana penyelidik-penyelidik tulen terpaksa lalui.
Dato’ Seri Najib tidak boleh terus lari dari persoalan penyelewengan sebegini – atau hanya menyertai larian anti-rasuah – beliau perlu beri penjelasan kerana ada beberapa dokumen lagi yang akan saya dedahkan.

Did someone planned the accident that killed Karpal Singh?

Without fail each week Karpal Singh would go back home to Penang.  It is a routine that every Tom, Dick and Harry knows. Even his office will announce it to whoever is asking to see Karpal on such and such a day. 

So it is not surprising that many people have doubt that this was just an ordinary accident.  Many are questioning whether it was the working of the INVISIBLE FORCE similar to Fuad Stephen's death.

At first I too did not believe that the same INVISIBLE FORCE would do such a thing again but now bit by bit the jig saw puzzle seems to fit the same profile.

The person who shed the first light was of course Zulkifli Nordin then followed by Nawawi Ahmad.

Having Karpal dead was one headache less since the fear of putting Anwar and the former in jail would be a disaster which no-one was willing to shoulder the burden.  Not even the three little piglets who were given a project together with a no need to pay back grant of RM150 million.

Today there is further proof of what the INVISIBLE FORCE is up to.  Be the judge and you will know who the people behind the INVISIBLE FORCE are.

This coming election does not matter who wins in PKR because the fate is already sealed within.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been refused an extension of time to file his petition of appeal against his sodomy conviction, PKR legal bureau head Latheefa Koya said.
She said the Federal Court registry instead asked Anwar to file a formal application, which included a notice of motion, to ask for more time to file the grounds of appeal.
"This is despite the fact that they are aware that tomorrow is the last day for filing the petition," said Latheefa.
Latheefa said she was informed of this matter by a lawyer from the legal firm of the late Karpal Singh who was killed in a road mishap last Thursday morning.
Karpal was the lead counsel who appeared for Anwar in the High Court and the Court of Appeal in the sodomy case.
"It is highly inconsiderate and shows a lack of sympathy and understanding over the tragic death of Karpal," said Latheefa.
"It appears the Federal Court is bent on rushing the appeal and this can be seen in their failure to grant an extension of time."
Yesterday, Ramkarpal Singh, who had appeared with Karpal in the sodomy case, said he had written to the Federal Court to ask for an extension of time to file the petition of appeal.
He said he hoped to get a reply today on whether the court would allow up to two weeks to file the grounds of appeal," he said.
The Court of Appeal sent the grounds of judgment to Karpal's firm on April 16, which gave them a 10-day deadline.
Karpal, 73, died in a car crash on April 17 along with his personal aide Michael Cornelius at KM301.6 of the North-South Expressway near Kampar in Perak.
On March 7, the Court of Appeal sentenced Anwar to five years jail after it allowed Putrajaya's appeal to set aside the High Court acquittal.
Putrajaya also filed a cross appeal to seek a longer jail sentence for 66-year-old Anwar.
On the charges, Anwar had always maintained that they were trumped up to stymie his political career. – April 23, 2014.

Malaysian Religious Council gone mad now cannot read books

Hooray Another Muslim Is Charged In Court For Reading Books !!

  • Senior citizen admits keeping books that are against Islamic law
  • A senior citizen pleaded guilty to possessing and keeping two books, which are deemed against Islamic law. 
  • Kamarulzaman Karim was accused of having and keeping the books 
  • The 61-year-old contract worker was charged under Section of the Criminal Offences Act related to religious publication deemed against Islamic Law.
  • If convicted, he would face a fine of not more than RM3,000 or not more than two years' imprisonment or both under the Act. 
  • Kamarulzaman, who was unrepresented, replied: "I am only a contract worker earning more than RM1,000 income a month and I request for a RM1,000 bail".
You know what this is right? In Nigeria it is called Boko Haram. In Malaysia it is called 'Buku haram'. You cannot read any book which the 'authorities' think you should not be reading. 

Here is something for your mental consumption. This is from a book. I will not tell you the name of this book. This book is read in Malaysia by 'scholars' (nauzubillah - May Allah protect us).  Among others it says the following :

1.  retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.”  (In other words there is no punishment for killing your children or grandchildren).
2.  if a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin.  But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash….(If a Muslim kills a non Muslim there is no death penalty for the Muslim.)

3.  if a Muslim commits adultery his punishment is 100 lashes, the shaving of his head, and one year of banishment. But if the man is not a Muslim and commits adultery with a Muslim woman his penalty is execution…(If a Muslim commits adultery it is 100 lashes, if a non Muslim commits adultery with a Muslim woman, he must be killed.)

So what do you think folks? Do you think books that say these type of wild things should be   

a. banned or   
b. forced down the minds of the muslims?

This is what is found written in some of these religious books which have NOT been banned. 

Conclusion : Do you expect the same people who believe in such things to allow other people write books which question such beliefs? I dont think so.

Which is why in intelligent and modern societies, they do not ban books. Especially intellectual books. But this statement is only valid in modern and intellectual societies.

Penang now got INVISIBLE COPS don't play, play


GEORGE TOWN - More than 50 police officers and personnel were on duty throughout the four days people were paying their last respects to the late Bukit Gelugor member of parliament Karpal Singh until his cremation in the Batu Gantung Crematorium here, last Sunday.
Penang police chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said personnel were also stationed at his residence at Jalan Utama and two mobile police stations deployed in the compound of Dewan Sri Pinang during the final paying of respects on Sunday.
"I ordered the traffic police to accompany the hearse when it arrived in Juru all the way to his house at Jalan Utama, on the day he passed away.
Two officers and 20 traffic police were also stationed there (Karpal Singh's residence) to direct traffic and maintain public order," he said.
He was speaking to reporters after launching the Blood Donation Campaign in conjunction with the 207th Police Day celebrations at the Penang police headquarters here today.
It was reported in the Malay Mail today that the state government had hit out at the police for failing to turn up as planned to control the massive crowd gathered at Dewan Sri Pinang to pay their last respects to Karpal Singh on Sunday.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng was quoted as saying that the state government would conduct a post-mortem to determine the reasons for the failure of the police to turn up.
Abdul Rahim said two officers and acting state Public Order and Traffic police chief DSP Abdul Rahim Md Din had also attended a meeting with the state government to discuss the final funeral procession route.
He said two officers and 20 traffic personnel were stationed on Sunday during Karpal Singh's funeral procession to the Batu Gantung Crematorium and more than 10 plain clothes policemen were on duty throughout the time people paid their last respect at the Dewan Sri Pinang.
Abdul Rahim said the traffic police were stationed at every junction along the funeral procession until it reached the crematorium namely, Lebuh Farquhar, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, Jalan Larut, Jalan Burma, Jalan Perak, Jalan Macalister, Jalan Residensi, Jalan Utama and Jalan Scotland.
"The traffic flow was smooth throughout the funeral procession and there were no bad congestion. And so far we have not received any reports about any disturbances or incidents either.
"So I don't understand why the state government is saying the police were not on duty, that's not true. We have photographs to prove it, that the police did their duty to the public," he said.
Karpal Singh, 74, and his personal assistant Michael Cornelius, 39, died in an accident about 1.10 am at KM306.1 of the North-South Highway near Gua Tempurung, Kampar last Thursday. - BERNAMA

Even in death, the Tiger frightens the UMNO Government

Education Ministry says no to use of school hall for Karpal’s memorial service

The organisers for Karpal Singh's memorial service, DAP, said today the Education Ministry has denied it the use of SJKC Chung Kwo hall in Jalan Loke Yew on the grounds that it was a political event.

karpal memorial
The organisers for Karpal Singh's memorial service, DAP, said today the Education Ministry has denied it the use of SJKC Chung Kwo hall in Jalan Loke Yew on the grounds that it was a political event. The Bukit Gelugor MP and veteran lawyer died in a car crash last Thursday.

Acting DAP chairman Tan Kok Wai said at a press conference that prior to this, the party had always used the school hall for various programmes, but was informed by the school authorities today that the ministry had rejected the application.

"We submitted the request on Monday, but at 9am today, it was rejected," Tan told reporters at the DAP headquarters in Kuala Lumpur today.

The party had often used the hall for its fund-raising activities and had also raised funds for the construction of the school hall.

Tan, however, did not blame the school authorities as they had to abide by the ministry's orders.

Instead, he said that this appeared to be a political agenda by the Barisan Nasional government.

"There is surely a political agenda here, but this is not even a political event, it is a gathering to honour the late Karpal Singh.

"They not only feared him when he was alive, BN is also scared of him after his death.”

Given the objection by the ministry, the memorial event will now take place at the Kuala Lumpur Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall at 8pm tomorrow.

Those expected at the event include Karpal's son, Gobind Singh Deo, opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, national laureate Datuk A. Samad Said, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, former Malaysian Bar president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan, DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and Pas deputy president Mohamad Sabu. - April 23, 2014.

Chicken meat contains Cancer Causing Arsenic

FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic - Chicken Factory
After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that's fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It's added to the chicken feed on purpose! Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American consumers who eat conventional chicken have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. ( 

Until this new study, both the poultry industry and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to chickensended up in their meat. The fairy-tale excuse story we've all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There's no scientific basis for making such a claim… it's just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe. But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (…). 

And what's the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children. Technically, the company making the Roxarsone chicken feed is a subsidiary of Pfizer, called Alpharma LLC. Even though Alpharma now has agreed to pull this toxic feed chemical off the shelves in the United States, it says it won't necessarily remove it from feed products in other countries unless it is forced by regulators to do so. As reported by AP: “Scott Brown of Pfizer Animal Health's Veterinary Medicine Research and Development division said the company also sells the ingredient in about a dozen other countries. He said Pfizer is reaching out to regulatory authorities in those countries and will decide whether to sell it on an individual basis.” (…) 

But even as its arsenic-containing product is pulled off the shelves, the FDA continues its campaign of denial, claiming arsenic in chickens is at such a low level that it's still safe to eat. This is even as the FDA says arsenic is a carcinogen, meaning it increases the risk of cancer. The National Chicken Councilagrees with the FDA. In a statement issued in response to the news that Roxarsone would be pulled from feed store shelves, it stated, “Chicken is safe to eat” even while admitting arsenic was used in many flocks grown and sold as chicken meat in the United States. What's astonishing about all this is that the FDA tells consumers it's safe to eat cancer-causing arsenic but it's dangerous to drink elderberry juice! The FDA recently conducted an armed raid in an elderberry juice manufacturer, accusing it of the “crime” of selling “unapproved drugs.” (…) 

Which drugs would those be? The elderberry juice, explains the FDA. You see, the elderberry juice magically becomes a “drugs” if you tell people how it can help support good health. The FDA has also gone after dozens of other companies for selling natural herbal products or nutritional products that enhance and support health. Plus, it's waging a war on raw milk which it says is dangerous. So now in America, we have a food and drug regulatory agency that says it's okay to eat arsenic, but dangerous to drink elderberry juice or raw milk. Eat more poison, in other words, but don't consume any healing foods. That's the FDA, killing off Americans one meal at a time while protecting the profits of the very companies that are poisoning us with their deadly ingredients. Oh, by the way, here's another sweet little disturbing fact you probably didn't know about hamburgers and conventional beef: Chicken litter containing arsenic is fed to cows in factory beef operations. So the arsenic that's pooped out by the chickens gets consumed and concentrated in the tissues of cows, which is then ground into hamburger to be consumed by the clueless masses who don't even know they're eating second-hand chicken crap.
