NGPriest: Malaysia Day/Hari Merdeka

Ξ August 31st, 2009 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Author: NGPriest |

Malaysia Day

A national ceremony celebrates the formation of the Federation of Malaysia in 1963 in Singapore.
Malaysia Day is held on September 16 every year to commemorate the establishment of Malaysian federation on the same date in 1963. It marked the joining together of Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore to form Malaysia. The formation of the new federation was planned to occur on June 1, 1963, but was later postponed to August 31, 1963, in order to coincide with the sixth Hari Merdeka. Several issues related to the Indonesian and the Filipino objection to the formation of Malaysia delayed the declaration to September 16 of the same year. The postponement was also done to allow the United Nations team time to conduct referendums in North Borneo (now Sabah) and Sarawak regarding the two states participation in a new federation.
The formation of Malaysia was made possible through the introduction of the Malaysia Bill to the Malayan Parliament on July 9, 1963, and consent from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on August 29, 1963.
Prior to the formation of Malaysia, Singapore and North Borneo unilaterally declared independence from the United Kingdom on August 31, 1963, thus coinciding with the sixth anniversary of the Malayan independence.
Malaysia Day is not a public holiday. However, it is coincidental with the birthday of the Yang di-Pertua of Sabah, making the day a public holiday in Sabah.

Hari Merdeka
Hari Merdeka (Independence Day) is a national day of Malaysia commemorating the independence of the Federation of Malaya from British colonial rule, celebrated on August 31. In a wider context, it is to celebrate the formation of Malaysia.

Malaya Independence
The effort for independence was spearheaded by Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, who led a delegation of ministers and political leaders of Malaya in negotiations with the British in London for Merdeka, or independence along with the first president of the Malayan Chinese Association (MCA) Tun Dato Sir Tan Cheng Lock and fifth President of Malaysian Indian Congress Tun V.T. Sambanthan. Once it became increasingly clear that the Communist threat posed during the Malayan Emergency was petering out, agreement was reached on February 8, 1956, for Malaya to gain independence from the British Empire. However, for a number of logistical and administrative reasons, it was decided that the official proclamation of independence would only be made the next year, on August 31, 1957, at Stadium Merdeka (Independence Stadium), in Kuala Lumpur.

The formation of Malaysia
The Federation of Malaysia, comprising the States of Malaya, North Borneo (later renamed Sabah), Sarawak and Singapore was to be officially declared on the date August 31, 1963, on the 6th anniversary of Malayan independence. However, it was postponed to September 16, 1963, mainly due to Indonesian and the Philippines’ opposition to the formation of Malaysia. Nevertheless, North Borneo and Singapore declared sovereignty on August 31, 1963. Indonesian opposition later escalated to a military conflict. Indonesia considered Malaysia as a new form of colonization on the provinces of Sarawak and Sabah in the island of Borneo (bordering Kalimantan, Indonesia), which they laid claim on. To assure Indonesia that Malaysia was not a form of neo-colonialism, a referendum, organized by the United Nations, and the Cobbold Commission, led by Lord Cobbold, were formed to determine whether the people of Sabah and Sarawak wished to join Malaysia. Their eventual findings which indicated substantial support for Malaysia among the peoples of Sabah and Sarawak, cleared the way for the final proclamation of Malaysia.
The formation of the Federation of Malaysia was then announced on September 16, 1963 as Malaysia Day. The Independence Day celebration is still held on August 31, the original independence date of Malaya. However, this has caused some minor discontent among East Malaysians in particular since it has been argued that celebrating the national day on August 31 is too Malaya-centric.

Theme and Logo
In nearly every year, a brand new theme and logo were made for the celebration of the Independence Day of Malaysia.
This year, it’s: 1 Malaysia, Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan (1 Malaysia, People First, Performance Now)

 

So, so many dates, i’m confused

(But we don’t celebrate it in Australia)

NGPriest: Skankiest in NYC

Ξ August 25th, 2009 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Author: NGPriest |

This is quite an interesting story
A blogger using blogspot called Liskula Cohen

“I would have to say the first-place award for ‘Skankiest in NYC’ would have to go to Liskula Gentile Cohen.”

Anyways, full story next

Vogue cover girl Liskula Cohen wins right to unveil ‘skank’ blogger
By staff writers NEWS.com.au August 19, 2009 12:35pm

  • Model wins case to reveal NYC blogger
  • Blogger called Vogue cover girl “skank”

A COVER girl for Vogue has won the right to reveal the name of an anonymous blogger who called her a “skank”.

Liskula Cohen sought the identity of the blogger so she can pursue a defamation case against them after they described her as “skanky” on the “Skanks in NYC” blog, the Times Online reports.

Google has been ordered to provide the bloggers details, after a Manhattan supreme court judge ruled Cohen was entitled to the information.

The offending part of the blog – which was run on Google’s blogger.com – read “I would have to say the first-place award for ‘Skankiest in NYC’ would have to go to Liskula Gentile Cohen.”

The blog by “anonymous” went on, describing the former Australian Vogue cover girl as a “40-something” who “may have been hot 10 years ago”, when she was actually 36.

The bloggers claim that blogs “serve as a modern-day forum for conveying personal opinions, including invective and ranting”, and should not be treated as factual assertions was rejected by the judge.

“Everybody is waiting to see who this coward is,” Steven Wagner, her lawyer, said.

Andrew Pederson, a Google spokesman, said: “We sympathise with anyone who may be the victim of cyberbullying. We also take great care to respect privacy concerns and will only provide information about a user in response to a subpoena or other court order.”

That’s the first half done, now, the blogger wants to sue google?

Rosemary Port to sue Google over Liskula Cohen ‘skank’ blog
By staff writers NEWS.com.au August 24, 2009 04:05pm

  • Blogger to sue Google for $18 million
    Says her privacy was not protected
    Cohen a “psychotic lying whore”
  • A NEW YORK blogger who described a model as a “skank” is planning to sue Google for $18 million after the internet giant revealed her identity.

Rosemary Port was sued by former Vogue cover girl Liskula Cohen after Google was forced to reveal her identity following a court order, The New York Daily News reports.

Ms Cohen had sought the identity of the fashion blogger so she could pursue a defamation case against her, it had earlier been revealed.

Ms Port’s offending part of the blog – which was run on Google’s blogger.com – read “I would have to say the first-place award for ‘Skankiest in NYC’ would have to go to Liskula Gentile Cohen”.

She also described Ms Cohen as an “old hag” and a “psychotic lying whore”.

Ms Port had originally defended her actions in court, claiming blogs “serve as a modern-day forum for conveying personal opinions, including invective and ranting”, and should not be treated as factual assertions, a claim rejected by the judge.

“This has become a public spectacle and a circus that is not my doing,”  Ms Port said.
“By going to the press, she defamed herself.”

The 29-year-old New York fashion student  now says Google didn’t do enough to protect her privacy.

“When I was being defended by attorneys for Google, I thought my right to privacy was being protected,” she told the NY Daily News.

“But that right fell through the cracks. Without any warning, I was put on a silver platter for the press to attack me.

“I would think that a multi-billion dollar conglomerate would protect the rights of all its users.”

Her suit claims Google “breached its fiduciary duty to protect her expectation of anonymity,” Ms Port’s lawyer, Salvatore Strazzullo, said.

“I’m ready to take this all the way to the Supreme Court,” Mr Strazzullo said.

“Our Founding Fathers wrote The Federalist Papers under pseudonyms. Inherent in the First Amendment is the right to speak anonymously.

“Shouldn’t that right extend to the new public square of the internet?”

Mr Strazzullo said: “Ms Cohen loves the spotlight. She brought this notoriety on herself. Then she used a PR circus to defame my client.”

But Cohen’s lawyer, Steven Wagner, hit back saying the model was never chasing media attention.

“The idea that Liskula brought this on herself is repulsive,” he said.

“If we had thought for a minute that the Google case would have brought more attention to the anonymous blogger’s site, we never would have started it.”

So, when blogging, always read the T&C before you start using online products

Severs also apply in most cases, since blogger is running on American servers, then the American law applies

Since NGPriest.com is running on an Australian server, then i have already studied abit into Australian law, so i know what can and can’t belong on this blog (and yes, i have contacted quite afew ISP’s in the past regarding certain comments on this blog)

 

NGPriest: HCl

Ξ August 19th, 2009 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Author: NGPriest |

For people who do science, we all know HCl is hydrochloric acid.
Back in grade/year 10, we had to observe any chemical reaction (including change of smell)
After cooking my sample and cleaning up the thongs (by soaking it in HCl and burning it at 100*c), my group decided to smell it
After afew goes of doing this, I shortly realized the sour burning sensation (abut like burnt toast) was actually inhaling HCl vapours.
And kids, don’t try this at home.
