Stop Wearing Mask


RECENTLY, I saw photos in newspapers showing people wearing "surgical masks" at shopping malls, schools, mamak stalls and other public areas.. I have even noticed people wearing them out in the open with no one around.
Because of this, I would like to explain why the mask may do more harm than good.

The H1N1 virus is not airborne . To be considered an airborne virus, the microorganism would have to survive or remain in the air for long periods of time. The H1N1 virus does not stay airborne.

I have noticed many people wearing masks in crowded places. However, places like airports, shopping malls and schools are full of germs and bacteria. If a small amount of bacteria gets into a hole in the mask, you will provide a breeding ground for the bacteria, which may lead to an illness or infection. The moisture you produce in your mask is perfect for bacteria and viruses, and may be a recipe for disaster.

The way to prevent exposure to H1N1 virus is to avoid physical contact with people who may be sick or infected. Also avoid commonly touched surfaces like escalator railings, poles and public toilet doorknobs.

The H1N1 virus usually spreads when someone touches surfaces with the bacteria and then touches his own nose, eyes or mouth.

Washing your hands frequently is the best defense against exposure.
And yes, the virus may travel from point A to point B in the air. But it will drop, not stay airborne.

Wearing a mask is only good at helping you not to spread your illness to others if you are infected.

I'm not sure how true it is? either to agree or disagree with the opinion

Test Your Brain

Test Your Brain
This is really cool.

Count every " F " in the following text:



WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind is further down.

The brain cannot process "OF".

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!

Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.

Three is normal, four is quite rare.

How to stay safe from rape

Through a Rapist's Eyes (No Joke)

When this was sent to me, I was told to forward it to my lady friends, but I forwarded it to almost everyone in my address book. My men friends have female friends and this Information is too important to miss someone.

Please pass it along and share it with your children.

A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:

1) The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle . They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun, braid or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed . They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair . Women with short hair are not common targets.

2) The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women whose clothing is easy to remove quickly . Many of them carry scissors around specifically to cut clothing.

3) They also look for women on their cell phone, searching through their purse, or doing other activities while walking because they are off-guard and can be easily overpowered.

4) Men are most likely to attack & rape in the early morning, between 5:00a.m. And 8:30a.m.

5) The number one place women are abducted from/attacked is grocery store parking lots. The number two: office parking lots/garages. Number three: public restrooms..

6) The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to another location where they don't have to worry about getting caught.

7) Only 2% said they carried weapons because rape carries a 3-5 year sentence but rape with a weapon is 15-20 years .

8 ) If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn't worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9) These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas, or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

Keys are NOT a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you're not worth it.

10) Several defense mechanisms he taught us are: If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it?, or make general small talk: 'I can't believe it is so cold out here,' 'We're in for a bad winter.' Now you've seen their face and could identify them in a line-up; you lose appeal as a target.

11) If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell STOP! Or STAY BACK! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they'd leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

12) If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes), yell I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent .

13) If someone grabs you, you can't beat them with strength but you can by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind , pinch the attacker either under the Arm (between the elbow and armpit) OR in the upper inner thigh VERY VERY HARD .. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands - the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it - it hurts.

14) After the initial hit, always GO for the GROIN. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy's parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you'll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble and he's out of there.

15) When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible . The instructor did it to me without using much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

16) Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don't dismiss it, go with your instincts!!!

You may feel a little silly at the time, but you'd feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2... Learned this from a tourist guide inNew Orleans : If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you....chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3.. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.

a. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything , wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5 A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot or parking garage:

A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side
floor, and in the back seat.

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

C .) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the
passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7 . If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times. And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.. RUN, preferably in a zigzag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic : STOP! It may get you raped or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well-educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.'

The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby --- This should be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America 's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana ..

Tips for love?

Every man would want to be the good man in love, because as we all know, it pays to be good. As much as possible as a man, you should take everything with ease and respect sweetheart decision.

Be the unimaginable good man in love, give the impression that you are crazy about her and can go to any heights just for her. Call her late at night and suggest to go see her, and since your intentions are clear, i bet she will not misinterpret your move. It will be flattering to her to just imagine you can dare take up the risk of moving to her place late at night.

I know a good man in love will always avoid arguments but it might reach an extent where this will work against him. Do not say yes to every one of her request or opinion. Let her hate you if she wants to but let your stand be known to her. It is ridiculous to accommodate everything and accept every blame just to be on the safe side. Soon you will notice she respects you no more. She takes you for granted and it is then you will appreciate that familiarity breeds contempt. Push your point until she gets it and you will be happy you chose to be a good man in love.

A girl worth her salt will evaluate his worth too before she commits her heart to him. Demonstrate that you are focused and capable of achieving great goals. If all you talk about is how old you are and how your mother has never gotten tired of supporting you, you are losing it as the good man in love! No girl wants to hear how much of mama boy you are. That shows that you are either too irresponsible or too pampered to work out a relationship.

Last but not least, do your homework well and be patient. Do not wake up tomorrow and all you want to apply everything at once. Remember you have been the good man in love who wants to change his course in order to fetch more affection. People will question your sincerity and you will not even go far in your mission. Internalize the ideas and learn to live by the rules of being a good man in love.

Tips for love?

Gua pun mahu tuntut ganti rugi la!

GESAAN pelbagai lapisan rakyat supaya Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA) dimansuhkan nampaknya menjadikan para pemimpin Umno gelisah tak tentu pasal.

Isu-isu sampingan yang melatari perhimpunan Mansuhkan ISA di ibu negara 1 Ogos lalu diperbesar-besarkan. Perhimpunan raksasa yang sepatutnya berlangsung secara aman bagi menyerahkanh memorandum kepada Istana Negara sengaja dijadikan kucar-kacir dengan tindakan keterlaluan polis.

Polis yang pastinya bertindak atas arahan pemimpin kerajaan BN telah menghalang lalu lintas daripada masuk ke pusat bandar khususnya ke jalan menuju Istana Negara bermula dari awal pagi Sabtu, 1 Ogos.

Sekatan jalan raya diadakan di semua laluan masuk ke ibu kota bermula sehari sebelumnya.

Pasukan Polis Simpanan Persekutuan (FRU) pula bertindak keras menghalang perhimpunan dengan menangkap orang awam, membelasah dengan belantan, menembak gas pemedih mata dan menyemburkan air menggunakan meriam air (water cannon) kepada mereka yang disyakki peserta perhimpunan.

Akhirnya, perhimpunan aman itu bertukar menjadi medan membelasah dan menangkap orang awam dan suasana aman ibu kota menjadi 'huru-hara' kerana tindakan-tindakan keterlaluan pihak polis.

Suasana huru-hara yang sengaja dicipta ini kemudiannya dijadikan modal oleh pemimpin Umno dan BN untuk memburuk-burukkan peserta perhimpunan dan para pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat.

Seorang menteri kabinet yang dilantik atas ihsan Perdana Menteri secara semberono memberikan angka kerugian hasil kejadian 1 Ogos itu yang didakwanya mencecah RM200 juta!

Bagaimanapun menteri yang sama tidak menjelaskan apakah punca sebenar 'kerugian' itu selain meletakkan kesalahan kepada demonstrasi jalanan. Mengapakah beliau yang bertanggung jawab terhadap hal ehwal Wilayah Persekutuan tidak langsung terfikir bagaimanakah perhimpunan mega itu mampu memberi impak positif kepada ekonomi Kuala Lumpur khususnya para peniaga kecil?

Cuba bayangkan jika perhimpunan itu berlangsung secara aman, pastinya seratus ribu rakyat yang datang daripada seluruh pelosok Semenanjung itu akan berbelanja di Kuala Lumpur. Paling tidakpun menghilangkan dahaga dan menjamu selera di Chow Kit, Jalan Masjid India, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman dan lain-lain tempat yang menjadi tumpuan para peniaga kecil.

Cuba bayangkan jika seorang peserta perhimpunan membelanjakan RM50 sepanjang berada di di Kuala Lumpur, transaksi itu boleh mencecah RM5 juta. Dan apabila dicampurkan dengan 'kerugian' RM200 juta itu, jumlahnya akan menjadi RM205 juta.

Dan jika Dato' Raja Nong Chik, menteri terbabit dapat berfikir di luar kotak, pastinya beliau akan mengalu-alukan kehadiran peserta himpunan anti-ISA ke Kuala Lumpur!

Beliau boleh menasihati polis supaya memberikan kerjasama kepada penganjur perhimpunan dengan mengawal lalulintas. Jalan tidak menjadi sesak manakala rakyat yang mahu menyuarakan pandangan dan rasa hati mereka boleh berarak ke Istana Negara dengan selesa dan bersisplin. Kehadiran seribu ahli Unit PAS pasti membantu.

Jika tidak mahu para peserta perhimpunan menambahkan kesesakan lalulintas ibu kota, Raja Nong Chik boleh menasihati mereka supaya menggunakan kenderaan awam seperti bas, keretapi, LRT, teksi dan seumpamanya. Ini sekaligus boleh membantu menambah pendapatan operator pengangkutan awam.

Sebenarnya banyak lagi faedah yang boleh didapati daripada perhimpunan 1 Ogos itu jika Raja Nong Chik, polis dan pemimpin kerajaan boleh berfikir di luar kotak.

Janganlah terlalu jumud untuk berfikir sehingga tergamak mengajak Ahli Parlimen wanita untuk menuruti beliau ke tandas!- tajdid
