Najib's Four ‘good’ reasons for not holding the elections now

In a comment piece published on the front-page of the Star today, the MCA-owned daily’s group editor-in-chief Wong Chun Wai stated four reasons for Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s feet-dragging on the dissolution of Parliament.
 

However, Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga is not convinced with the four “good” reasons, which were:
  • A caretaker government cannot enter into agreements at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition (Lima).
  • Finishing touches to some projects and programmes.
  • Barisan Nasional’s candidates’ list not finalised.
  • Impossible at the moment for politicians to campaign freely in Lahad Datu.
Commenting on the first reason cited, Ambiga told FMT that it is not a licence to dig into the public coffers to embark on a spending spree.

Lima contracts were all foreseeable. If this was an aim, then why lead the public on a merry ride and threaten to dissolve Parliament for more than a year?” she asked.
Ambiga stressed that it is morally wrong to extend the dissolution date on this premise, adding that the move smacked of utter desperation.


The way they [the incumbent government] are spending suggests that they are not certain of returning to power. And that is the whole point of a caretaker government: they should not make any contracts which the next incoming government would be bound by; you must uphold the status quo.

It is wrong to rush into contracts when it is very close to the caretaker period,” she added.
 

As for Wong’s second point, Ambiga argued that putting the final touches on projects and programmes is also something that was foreseeable in the past.

This once again suggests that they are not confident. It seems that for the first time, there is a confidence crisis [in BN] with regard to retaining Putrajaya.

However, your nervousness does not justify spending the rakyat’s money so close to the election and for keeping us on hold regarding the election date,” she said.
 

‘Automatic dissolution is shameful’
On BN still finalising its list of candidates, the Bersih chairperson dismissed this as the weakest possible excuse.
Ambiga said the list has to be finalised before any general election, and since Najib has been toying with the people over the election date for more than a year, BN should have worked on the list a long time ago.


This is a pathetic excuse for delaying the dissolution of Parliament,” she added.
As for the security in Lahad Datu being used as a reason, Ambiga expressed puzzlement.


We were previously given the impression that everything was fine and safe… for the election to be held there. This is news to me. It seems like the government is caught in its own web of misinformation… I would like to know the truth about the situation there,” she said.
 

Commenting on the automatic dissolution of the Negeri Sembilan State Legislative Assembly last night, Ambiga said this is not something to be proud of as it meant that the incumbent government is being booted out of power by the Federal Constitution.
 

“…unless we amend the Constitution and have fixed dates for elections. Then everybody’s life goes on until the date of election; now everyone’s life is on hold… this is the psychological point and it is shameful,” she added.
 

Furthermore, Ambiga stated that automatic dissolution is a constitutional safeguard against recalcitrant regimes.

Let me stress again that there was nothing to be proud of allowing for an automatic dissolution, although it was legal. No self-respecting government would allow that to happen,” she added.
 

Najib’s delay in dissolving Parliament has led to a litany of speculations, ranging from a lack of confidence to more last-minute plots being hatched against the opposition.
Parliament is scheduled for automatic dissolution on April 27.

KEC Community Run - 17 March'13

This was my first race for the year. Though I have ran in Klang before, but the route was a bit different from other races. I reached the place 1 hour before the race starts. Thus, I had adequate time for warm up and stretching.

However, the race started 10 minutes late after the aerobic exercise. As the race started, I went on slow pace but got out from the slow runners group. As distance pass by, I tried to increase my pace and started to overtake few runners in front of me.

There were 2 water station, which I felt was adequate for 10km race, furthermore it was only 10km. Perhaps, they could have waters too, rather than 100plus only.

There were 2 slopes, and the tougher one was towards the ending (final 3km), where I though we were about to finish the race but we merely pass by the entrance of KEC club and made U-turn for another stretch.

As I reached the final 2km, I saw a boy was walking. He told me he was having stomachache. I just told him to continue running slowly rather than walking. Thus he followed me and picked the pace towards the finishing line.

My timing was 47:03 with top 20 placing.

Next race will be Woman's Marathon on April 7 where I will be pacing a hot lady....

It's ok..It's Alright..

Back speakers

I'm glad that some person used me as the source by speaking negatively about me to win a speech contest. Sadly, the person could not move up to further level.

I'm fine to speak about me negatively or positively as it's still a publicity for me and the more you speak about me, the more you loose time to developement your maturity.

What to do, some people are still immature though they are working in a regulatory financial institution.

I just wonder when the person will have the maturities to face me directly..

Soon to expire goverment

The previous General election was held on March 8 (GE-12). As per the constitution, the goverment can be ruled to maximum of 5 years from the date of formation of parliment.

Though we have surpassed March 8, nevertheless, we have another 46 days, where Jibby has to step down with his 40 thieves by then. Thus, they are in their injury time now to ensure their patches are properly done.

It's all a long wait to see for the D-Day of GE13.

How to keep focus

1. Identify your learning style. Figure out how you learn best, then organize your workplace to play up your strengths. "If you can identify your learning style, then you can start to build systems around it," Levrini says.
For example, if have a hard time keeping track of information that's out of sight, creating an open filing system, color coding, and clear containers can help keep you stay organized. Likewise, an auditory learner who needs to prepare for an interview will recall his talking points better if they're read aloud.

2. Visually map your time and tasks. Map your day by the hour and review it throughout the day to help you organize your time. That visual cue will help you pace your day and budget your time appropriately.
Use free hours effectively by ranking your task list visually as well. Try color coding your list according to priority, with four or five levels of urgency. "Assign levels to each of your tasks," Levrini says. Do the essential, time-sensitive tasks early in the week while you're fresh, then save the optional ones for later.

3. Fidget to help you focus. When you need to pay attention during a call or meeting, bring a small object that you can play with, such as putty. It should be something you can manipulate mindlessly while you listen. "That actually frees up your mental energy so you can focus a little better," Levrini says.
In general, releasing excess energy throughout the day will help you stay on task. "The longer you try to focus on something without moving around, your mind will start to tire," Levrini says. To improve your focus, climb the stairs between tasks, pace while you talk on the phone, or simply change your environment throughout the day.

4. Break up the tedious tasks. Boring tasks cause excessive distraction and procrastination. Forcing yourself to endure them will only exacerbate the problem. Instead, work in fifteen-minute bursts. Set a timer and try to do as much as you can before it goes off. Make a game of it.
When time is up, do something active, such as walking up the stairs or doing jumping jacks, then work for another fifteen minutes. That burst of activity will give you the energy you need to maintain focus. "By taking frequent breaks and building in physical activity, you don't get mentally fatigued and bored," Levrini says.

Malaysian doing better as French




SASHINA Vigneswaran is from Malaysia. But she’s now making waves in international badminton as France’s No. 1 woman singles player.

She’s even ranked higher than all the Malaysian women’s singles shuttlers in the world rankings. Sashina is world No. 40, while Malaysian No. 1 Sonia Cheah is only ranked 49th in the world!

“My parents sent my sister (Teshana) and I to France so that we could balance our studies and badminton career. It was tough initially but I’m glad everything’s fallen into place. My sister Teshana also plays for the club,” she said.

In Malaysia, Sashina used to study at the St Mary’s Secondary School and trained briefly under the Kuala Lumpur state programme.
“I got involved in badminton at eight years old. My mother (Shantha Kumari) coaches young children at her own centre – Oncourt Sports – in Selayang but I didn’t train under her,” she laughed.

“I’m from the same batch as Woon Khe Wei, Goh V Shem and Lydia and we catch up during competitions sometimes. I have no regrets leaving.”

My comment:
I have also witnessed New Zealand & Australian players whom were Malaysian born. Is there something fishy going on in our BAM?

Generations X and Y: What They Care About

The new generations of leaders often have a completely different way of working from their older counterparts. (Keep in mind that we can't discuss all of the characteristics of these new groups in such a short space. Also, not everyone in these generations fits these characteristics: we're going to make some huge generalizations here, however hopefully these generalizations will be useful!)

For example, while boomers usually view long hours as evidence of loyalty and hard work, Gen X and Y tend to try to have more work/life balance. They've seen their parents' lack of quality of life, and the lack of loyalty companies showed to these hard-working parents in the 1990s, and they're not impressed.

They want flexible hours, more vacation time, continuous training, and telecommuting options. They expect to leverage technology to work efficiently instead of staying late in the office to get it all done.
Boomers have traditionally felt that you have to "pay your dues" to your company – and if you hate your job, that's just part of life. Generations X and Y typically don't accept this; they want rewarding, intellectually stimulating work – and they don't want someone watching them too closely to check on their progress.

These new groups are independent, creative, and forward thinking. They celebrate cultural diversity, technology, and feedback, and they prefer more of a "lattice" or individualized approach to management (as opposed to the traditional "corporate ladder").

The new generations also tend to like teamwork. Studies have shown that colleague relationships rank very high on Gen X and Y's list of priorities. Things like salary and prestige can often rank lower than boomers might expect, or might want for themselves.
