Aidil Fitri: Speed limits on federal, state roads reduced to 70km/hr

KUALA LUMPUR: Speed limits will be reduced by 10 km/hr for all federal and state roads during the duration of the Ops Selamat 3 road safety operation in conjunction with the Aidilfitri festive season from tomorrow (Aug 1) till Aug 18.

Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof said during the period, the speed limit on federal roads will be reduced from 90km/hr to 80km/hr while for state roads to 70km/hr from 80km/hr. 
 
"This for the safety of motorists during the festive period and we hope they will observe the changed speed limits during the festive season," he told reporters after breaking fast with tertiary students from Sarawak living in the Klang Valley, at the Putra World Trade Centre here tonight.
 
Some 250 Sarawak students from Teachers Training colleges, Universiti Malaya, International Islamic University, Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Mara and several private colleges attended the event. 
 
Apart from the change in speed limits, Fadillah also said the ministry had ordered that all road repair work including on tolled highways be stopped during Ops Selamat 3 for the comfort of motorists and to ease traffic flow. 
 
"Exemptions on road maintenance will only be given in critical situations like landslides or for patching up potholes that pose a risk to safety of motorists," he said. 
 
He also said that Public Works Department patrol teams would be monitoring roads under its jurisdiction during office hours for the duration of Ops Selamat 3 with the frequency increased during rainy weather.  - BERNAMA

Woman who uploads Raya-with-dogs video to YouTube arrested

KUALA LUMPUR: The woman believed to have uploaded to YouTube the controversial video clip showing a man celebrating Hari Raya with three dogs, has been arrested and taken into police custody at Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department.

Her lawyer, Latheefa Koya, said Maznah Mohd Yusof, 38, was being investigated under Section 298A of the Penal Code for causing disharmony, disunity, or feelings of enmity or hatred on grounds of religion. 
"She has been detained since 4.30pm to have her statement recorded. I'm not sure how long she will be put in police custody," she told Bernama when contacted here today. 
Maznah, who is known as Chetz, was believed to be the individual who uploaded the video, which shows someone strolling near a mosque with three dogs and the 'takbir Raya' playing in the background, to YouTube. 
The recording which lasts 1 minute and 44 seconds also shows the person in a black baju Melayu performing ablution before preparing kuih raya for his dogs. -- BERNAMA

STROKE : Has New Indicator

I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!!

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
>>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<<

Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is

'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?

8 Ways to Lower Your Cancer Risk : No. 9, Bonus Advice

These lifestyle choices may make cancer less likely.


You’ve seen the hype-filled headlines: “The Cancer Prevention Diet!” “Slash Your Risk of Cancer in Half in Just Minutes a Day!” Is it true that you can cut your cancer risk with simple choices you make every day?
Well, there’s nothing magic about cancer prevention, no “killer app” that can instantly keep you healthy. Genetics play a big role in cancer, so even if you try to live a perfectly healthy life, it’s possible that you may develop cancer.
But experts estimate that at least a third of all adult cancer cases are linked to lifestyle, which is within your control.
With every healthy choice you make -- and every unhealthy habit you drop -- you’re chipping away at your cancer risk. Here are eight of the healthiest habits you can develop to help prevent cancer (plus a ninth one that experts are still cautious about).

9. Aspirin -- Maybe, and with a Dose of Caution.

Should you take aspirin to prevent cancer? The jury’s still out, but at least some evidence points that way. A large study published in 2010 found that daily use of low-dose aspirin can cut the risk of death due to certain cancers (primarily lung, colorectal, and esophageal cancer) by as much as 21%.
But regular aspirin use can come with side effects, especially stomach bleeding and irritation. Most experts say it’s way too soon to recommend a cancer-fighting aspirin a day.
“We’d all like preventing cancer to be as easy as taking a little pill, but the fact is that you’ll reduce your cancer risk much more by maintaining a healthy weight, exercising, and eating fruits and vegetables than you will by taking aspirin,” Ruffin says.
Talk to your doctor before you start taking aspirin on a regular basis for any reason.

8. Dig Your Roots.

Ruffin advises all of his patients to learn their family health histories in detail. “Family history is where we can really create a personalized strategy for cutting cancer risk and catching it early,” he says. “But it’s a piece I don’t think people bring up nearly often enough.”
So next time you have a family reunion, make it a project to gather information on who’s had what health condition and when. “Gather on Skype or Facebook or face to face and talk about this,” Ruffin says.
The Surgeon General’s Family Health History Initiative lets you create a personalized diagram that you can download to keep on your own computer, or copy and share with other family members to keep the info flowing.

7. Pull Down the Screens.

Many screening tests for various cancers, like mammograms and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing, don’t actually prevent cancer -- they just catch it at a very early stage, when it may be more treatable.
But other tests, like Pap tests and colonoscopies, can help detect precancerous changes that, if left untreated, can turn into cervical cancer or colon cancer.
There are many confusing messages about what screening tests different people should use, and when. Instead of trying to figure it out on your own, Ruffin says, talk to your doctor about your individual situation.
Take screening mammograms, for instance. The question isn’t “Should women under 50 get mammograms?” but “Should I,given my own personal situation and family health history, start mammograms before 50?”
“And don’t think one conversation is enough,” Ruffin says. “Things about your health situation change, and so does our knowledge about cancer and screening. Ask your doctor about it this year, and next year, and the year after that.”

6. Shake Off Stress.

“People always want to know if stress can raise your cancer risk,” Ruffin says. “There’s no convincing evidence that, by itself, stress is an independent risk factor for cancer. But what it cando is lead people to engage in unhealthy behavior in an effort to cope with stress. If you’re overeating, drinking, or smoking to self-medicate your stress away, those behaviors all raise your cancer risk.”
So instead, Ruffin recommends finding healthy ways of coping with stress, like exercise (which helps to reducecancer risk), meditation, and journaling.

5. Drop the Drink.

When it comes to health, alcohol wields a double-edged sword. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that light alcohol consumption, especially red wine,may be beneficial for heart health.
But on the other hand, it appears that any alcohol consumption can raise your risk of cancer.
“For cancer, there is no safe level of alcohol,” Bender says. “It’s a dose response: The more you drink, the greater the risk, especially for certain cancers like those of the mouth, throat, and esophagus.” And if you smoke, too, the combined effects of drinking and smoking shoot your risk for these up even higher.
What to do? Both the AICR expert report and the American Cancer Society recommend that women limit alcohol consumption to no more than one drink per day, and men no more than two.

4. Plant Your Plate.

There are a number of different foods that may help to prevent certain types of cancer. “For example, tomatoes, watermelon, and other foods containing lycopene have evidence showing that they probably reduce the risk of prostate cancer,” Bender says.
But if you’re aiming to slice your risk of many cancers across the board, load your plate with plants, particularly non-starchy vegetables and fruits. That’s why the AICR report’s No. 4 recommendation is to eat mostly foods that come from plants -- at least 14 ounces every day. The Mediterranean diet, St. Tropez diet, and the green diet all are based on a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Diets that tend to prevent cancer are rich in plant-based foods.
AICR’s “new American plate” plan offers an easy cheat sheet on eating to prevent cancer. Fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains should cover two-thirds of your plate; the other one-third should contain lean meats, fish, and low-fat dairy.

3. Bust a Move.

All forms of physical activity help to prevent many forms of cancer, according to the AICR Expert Report. You may not get six-pack abs with 30 minutes of moderate exercise every day, but a number of studies have found evidence that just this much physical activity can cut your risk of many common cancers by 30% to 50%.
“It doesn’t matter that much what kind of exercise you do, or when -- just do it,” Ruffin says. “Let’s correlate it to smoking. If you can cut your weight down to a healthy range, increase your physical activity, and increase your fruit and vegetable intake. That’s the equivalent to stopping smoking if you were a smoker. People don’t understand how important these factors are, because they creep up over your life span.”

2. Don't Weight.

Many people probably know that carrying too much weight around isn’t good for your heart, but did you know that it’s a major risk factor for cancer as well? Obesity is the culprit behind some 14% of cancer deaths, and more than 3% of new cancer cases, every year.
“Our No. 1 recommendation for cancer risk reduction is to stay as lean as possible within a healthy weight range. This may be one of the most important ways to prevent cancer,” says Alice Bender, MS, RD, manager of nutrition communications at the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR).
In November 2007, the AICR put out an expert report summarizing how food, nutrition, and physical activity affect cancer and cancer prevention. Being overweight, according to the AICR report, is linked to a wide variety of cancers, including esophageal, pancreatic, gall bladder, breast, endometrial, and kidney cancers.

1. Be Smoke Free.

Lung cancer kills more women and men in the U.S. than any other cancer -- 28% of all cancer deaths, or about 160,000 people every year. The vast majority of those deaths are due to smoking.
And that’s just lung cancer. Smoking has also been linked to more than a dozen other cancers and accounts for 30% of all cancer deaths overall.
That's why many doctors will tell you that the biggest anti-cancer step you can take is to stop smoking, or never start. But even if you’re having trouble quitting entirely, you can reduce your cancer risk significantly by just cutting back.
A study that appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2010 found that smokers who cut back from about 20 cigarettes per day to less than 10 per day reduced their lung cancer risk by 27%. It’s a good first step, but don't stop there; quit completely for your health's sake.
Even if you’re a nonsmoker, don’t assume smoke isn’t permeating your life. About 3,000 cases of lung cancer each year occur as a result of exposure to secondhand smoke, and there are strong indicators that other cancers may be linked to secondhand smoke as well.
“If you’re in a closed bar or nightclub and 100 people in there are smoking, you might as well be,” says Mack Ruffin IV, MD, MPH, a professor in the department of family medicine at the University of Michigan and an expert in preventive oncology. “If you leave a bar and your clothes are smelling of tobacco, you’ve inhaled a lot of cigarette smoke.”
So think twice before spending regular nights out in smoke-filled clubs, or letting your child ride home regularly with someone who smokes in the car.

DANGER!!! Water Bottle Left in The Car.......

Photo: DANGER!!!!


LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE/GIRLFRIEND/ DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE!

Bottled water in your car is very dangerous!
On the Ellen show, Sheryl Crow said that this is what caused her
breast cancer. It has been identified as the most common cause
of the high levels of dioxin in breast cancer tissue..

Sheryl Crow’s oncologist told her: women should not drink bottled
water that has been left in a car. The heat reacts with the chemicals
in the plastic of the bottle which releases dioxin into the water.
Dioxin is a toxin increasingly found in breast cancer tissue. So please
be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

Pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind
we need to know that just might save us! Use a stainless steel canteen
or a glass bottle instead of plastic!

This information is also being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water
bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water
in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the Wellness
Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain
this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we
should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers…..
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin
into the food.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers
for heating food… You get the same result, but without the dioxin.. So,
such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from
their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to
use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants
moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin
problem is one of the reasons….

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as
dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually
melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with
a paper towel instead.

Center … No plastic containers in microwaves. No plastic water
bottles in freezers. No plastic wrap in microwaves.

Dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to cells in our bodies. Don’t freeze plastic bottles with water
in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently the Wellness
Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain
this health hazard.

He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we
should not be heating food in the microwave using plastic containers…..
This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat and plastic releases dioxin
into the food.

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Pyrex or ceramiccontainers
for heating food… You get the same result, but without the dioxin.. So,
such things as TV dinners, instant soups, etc., should be removed from
their containers and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s safer to
use tempered glass, such as Pyrex, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants
moved away from the styrene foam containers to paper. The dioxin
problem is one of the reasons….

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Cling film, is just as
dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.
As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually
melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with
a paper towel instead.

Ibu mangsa, Rosmiha Karim, 45, terkejut menemui anaknya itu dalam keadaan ketakutan dan menangis di koridor flat terbabit dalam kejadian kira-kira 5.20 petang semalam.

Tak Kenang Budi atau Tak Sanggup Hadapi Kenyataan : Pasangan gelandangan sudah cabut lari

Kuala Lumpur: “Kami tolong dengan ikhlas kerana mahu mereka bina hidup baru yang lebih baik, tetapi mereka sendiri tak tahu menghargai, malah sanggup lari dari rumah ketika kami keluar berniaga,” kata Nurulhuda Zainuddin, 44.
Peniaga itu dan suaminya Husin Mohamad, 41, kecewa apabila pasangan gelandangan Zaki, 29, dan Maya, 23, yang dibantu Khamis lalu, tiba-tiba melarikan diri dari rumah mereka di pinggir ibu kota, kelmarin tanpa pesanan.
Zaki dan Maya yang dianggap seperti anak sendiri dibawa menetap serta ditawar pekerjaan dengan gaji RM600, berikutan tidak mahu pasangan itu kembali menghuni bawah jejambat di tepi Sungai Klang.
Nurulhuda berkata, naluri keibuan yang tebal dalam dirinya turut simpati kepada bayi lelaki Maya yang dilahirkan Isnin lalu, justeru, mahu pasangan itu menjalani kehidupan berkeluarga seperti masyarakat lain.
“Sejak hari pertama kami sudah berniat mahu menolong sehingga kedua-duanya mampu berdikari.
“Jadi, apabila mereka buat begini, saya jadi sangat kecewa dan tertanya-tanya, kenapa mesti mereka melarikan diri begitu saja? Apa yang berlaku sebenarnya?” katanya.
Menurutnya, Zaki sepatutnya mengikutnya dan suami berniaga di Jalan Raja Bot di sini namun tidak berbuat demikian atas alasan penat menguruskan anak.
“Saya tak kisah dan beri peluang dia berehat, tetapi pada tengah hari dia memberitahu ada pemberita mahu datang ke rumah untuk temu bual, selain rakan gelandangannya mahu melawat.
“Mendengar itu saya jadi bimbang dan kata jangan benarkan sesiapa masuk ke rumah sehingga saya dan suami pulang kerana kami berjanji berbuka bersama di satu majlis berbuka puasa anjuran persatuan yang kami suami isteri sertai.
“Tapi pada saat akhir Zaki memberitahu tidak dapat berbuka bersama dan saya yang tidak sedap hati menelefon jiran untuk tengokkan mereka di rumah. Saya tahu dia cuba tipu saya,” katanya.
Menurutnya, ketika itulah mereka diberitahu Zaki dan Maya meninggalkan rumah dengan membiarkan pintu tidak berkunci selain membawa semua keperluan mereka. “Sepanjang malam saya cuba hubungi mereka tapi talian tutup dan adakalanya tidak berjawab. Saya tertanya-tanya kenapa mereka mesti bertindak begitu,” katanya.
Dia juga teringat perbualan dengan pasangan itu pada Jumaat lalu yang menimbulkan banyak keraguan termasuk berhubung perkahwinan mereka di Selatan Thailand.
Katanya, dia dan suami mengesyaki pasangan itu belum berkahwin berdasarkan cara mereka menjawab pertanyaan dan penipuan mereka juga jelas terpancar di wajah.
“Maya juga memburuk-burukkan keluarganya yang pada pandangan saya tidak seperti apa yang digambarkan. Saya ada bertemu sebahagian keluarganya ketika mengambil mereka di Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL), jadi saya tahu dia tak bercakap benar,” katanya.
Menurutnya, dia tidak berniat menghukum pasangan itu, sebaliknya mahu mereka bertemunya, bercakap jujur dan hentikan semua penipuan menarik perhatian masyarakat.
Katanya, dia akan membuat laporan polis untuk mengelak timbul masalah kemudian. hari.

More than 38,000 Americans Commit Suicides Every Year

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- After losing his job and his girlfriend, Michael Gousha drove to a rural spot in Bullitt County with a pistol he'd bought just days earlier. Parking near an old barn, he got out of the car, fired all the bullets but one, placed the gun to his head and pulled the trigger — ending his life at 23.
Trying to silence the voices in his head, Larry Lepine of Leslie County took handfuls of illegal amphetamines — but survived to rebuild his life.
Both men were distraught. Both suffered from mental illness. The difference was that one used a gun, obliterating any opportunity for a second chance.
While the recent shootings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., have focused attention on the risks of the mentally ill using guns to hurt others, statistics show they are far more likely to turn guns on themselves.
Suicides, which accounted for nearly two-thirds of U.S. gun deaths in 2010, are on the rise throughout the nation, and in Kentucky, where guns are prevalent and easily accessible.
While suicide attempts usually stem from temporary setbacks that, in time, seem less dire, access to guns makes the equation much more lethal — because those who choose a gun over pills, cutting or hanging to end their life almost never survive.
Experts are divided on whether stricter gun controls are the answer to curbing suicides, but they agree that family and friends can best protect loved ones struggling with suicidal thoughts by helping keep guns out of their hands.
"Often when people make suicide attempts, they see no other way out because their thinking is impaired. ... They want the pain to stop. They want peace," said Ramona Johnson, president and chief executive officer of Bridgehaven Mental Health Services in Louisville. "When they use guns, that's a pretty lethal method."
Statistics drive home the point:
-- More than 38,000 Americans, including roughly 600 Kentuckians, take their lives each year, and those numbers are growing. From 1999 to 2010, suicide rates in Kentucky rose 22 percent to 14.2 deaths per 100,000 residents. Indiana's rate rose 26 percent, to 13.1 per 100,000; the U.S. rate rose 15 percent, to 12.1 per 100,000.
-- Guns are used in about half of U.S. suicides, compared with 64 percent in Kentucky. And suicides involving firearms are fatal 85 percent of the time, compared with less than 3 percent for pills, according to the Harvard Injury Control Research Center.
-- Nine in 10 suicides are associated with mental illness, according to studies examining "psychiatric autopsies" of mental health history after death. But gun laws in Kentucky and Indiana allow all but a small fraction of the mentally ill to buy firearms from licensed dealers, or obtain them without restraints from family members, friends, gun shows or online.
-- For those who do survive a suicide attempt, studies show that 90 percent don't go on to die by their own hands later.
"Rage passes. Anxiety can calm," said Lanny Berman, executive director of the American Association of Suicidology. "Death doesn't lead to anywhere but death."
For Lepine, 45, suicidal feelings have subsided after he was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and began taking a new anti-psychotic medication. He asks relatives to keep their guns locked up when he is around, just in case his suicidal impulse returns.

Wellington Hit by 6.9 Magnitude Earthquake

Wellington Police Inspector Marty Parker said there had been minor structural damage that had left parts of the city without power. There have been no reports of injury and no tsunami.

Malaysia vs Chelsea : Play To Win Urged Tengku Abdullah

THE moment has arrived for national coach K. Rajagobal to produce favourable results by fielding his best, starting with today's friendly against Chelsea, instead of choosing to continue experimenting with players.

FA of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said the match at the Shah Alam Stadium tonight is part of the final lap of preparations before the national team resume their Asian Cup 2015 Group D qualifying campaign against Bahrain at home on Oct 15.
"There is no longer a need to conduct experiments. If we frequently try out the players, then when are we going to see the best 11?
"I hope the best available players will be picked to start against Chelsea and furthermore, the national team also have an important match (Asian Cup) soon. I want the coach and players to treat the match against Chelsea with high respect and play their hearts out," he said in Kuantan late on Friday.
Admitting the match against Chelsea will be tough, Tengku Abdullah urged the players to produce their best.
"Of course we want to win. I hope the players produce an entertaining performance and give their opponents a strong fight."
Before playing Bahrain, the national squad will travel to Japan for three friendly matches against club sides between July 23 and Aug 1 before facing Spanish giants Barcelona at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Aug 10.
On calls by some fans for Rajagobal's services to be terminated after Malaysia suffered a drop in form in recent matches, Tengku Abdullah said it was still too early to decide.
"He has a job to do and we do not want to disturb his preparations as the Asian Cup qualifiers are just around the corner. He knows the target and the Asian Cup qualifying round will be his key performance indicator," he said. By T.N.Alagesh
