Sydney the hottest place on Earth after reaching 47.3 C



THE U.S. northeast may be experiencing record-breaking low temperatures, but in the land down under, Aussies are melting from the sweltering heat.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Sydney became the hottest place on Earth on January 7, with temperatures in the western suburb of Penrith reaching 47.3 degrees Celsius.

It was a few degrees shy of breaking the record for hottest day in the area a 47.8 degree temperature recorded in Richmond in 1939.

The hot weather combined with strong winds increased bushfire occurrences, prompting certain areas to issue a total fire ban prohibiting open air fires, welding, barbecues, and throwing lit cigarettes, among others.

The heat caused higher-than-normal ozone levels, prompting a forecast of poor air quality, which could affect those with respiratory problems.

Extreme temperatures also affected train track infrastructure, and contributed to power outages, which affected roughly 3,000 properties throughout Sydney.

The next few days are expected to be cooler compared to Sunday’s scorcher, but still relatively hot.

Some PKR members protest Dr M’s naming as PM candidate


TUN M

MO,8/1/2018, SHAH ALAM: Mixed signals have emerged from the Pakatan Harapan convention despite the announcement that the four partner parties agreed on several issues such as seat allocations that will be contested in the next general election. PKR’s position in the Opposition front was “demoted” to second place when Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia was allocated 52 seats to be contested by the Opposition in the general election – the highest number in Pakatan. PKR was allocated 51 seats.

The matter worsened when Pakatan picked Pribumi chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as the prime minister if Pakatan wins the general election. PKR members protested at the main entrance of the IDCC Convention Centre where the event was held.

A group of PKR members demanded that jailed party adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim be named prime minister, and his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail named deputy prime minister. This outburst contradicted the shouts of unity made by the respective Pakatan leaders during the convention. When contacted, some PKR members who did not attend the convention wanted party deputy president and Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, and not even Anwar, to be the prime minister if and when Pakatan forms the Federal Government.

Dr Mahathir’s feeble response at the press conference on naming Anwar as prime minister raised questions whether he was chosen due to consensus or alleged arm-twisting by Pribumi. When pressed for a reply, Dr Mahathir said there were processes that had to be met before Anwar takes over from him as prime minister.

To a question if he would serve one full term as prime minister or vacate earlier to make way for Anwar, Dr Mahathir said he was 92 years old and anything could happen.

Evan disambut baik di Selangor


PEMAIN import Selangor, Evan Dimas Darmono, sukar membayangkan betapa baik penerimaan skuad The Red Giants terhadap kehadirannya sambil mengakui hal itu menjadi perkara utama yang difikirkannya sebelum tiba di Malaysia.

Ternyata kebimbangan Evan meleset kerana kehadiran pemain itu sememangnya dinanti-nantikan pasukan bimbingan P. Maniam itu selain penyokong setia pasukan.

Walaupun urusan perpindahan mereka ke Selangor melewati pelbagai kontroversi, namun itu tidak merencatkan harapan pasukan dan penyokong yang mahu melihat Selangor lebih baik daripada musim lalu dengan kehadiran Evan dan juga rakan senegaranya, Ilham Udin Armaiyn.

“Tentu sekali saya malu. Pertamanya, saya cukup malu kerana menjadi pemain baru dan juga asing di sini, bagaimana untuk menyesuaikan diri.

“Alhamdulillah, keluarga Selangor cukup baik sekali. Saya senang di sini,” katanya.

Evan berasakan segala-galanya lebih mudah untuk dia menyesuaikan diri selain kelibat Mohd Razman Roslan dan Mohd Amri Yahyah yang memang dikenalinya.

“Saya mengenali pemain senior Selangor seperti Amri dan Razman. Saya harap mereka boleh membimbing saya,” katanya.

Terdahulu, Persatuan Sepakbola Seluruh Indonesia (PSSI) menimbulkan kegusaran terhadap persediaan skuad Indonesia dengan membayangkan Selangor sukar memberi pelepasan kepada mereka, terutama dalam Sukan Asia, Ogos depan.

Sydney tempat paling panas di Bumi suhu cecah 47.3 C



SYDNEY: Jika sebahagian besar kawasan di utara Amerika Syarikat merekodkan suhu paling rendah ketika ini, lain pula ceritanya di Sydney apabila ibu kota Australia itu mencatatkan suhu paling tinggi.

The Sydney Morning Herald melaporkan Sydney menjadi tempat paling panas di dunia pada 7 Januari lalu dengan catatan 47.3 darjah Celsius.

Ia hanya beberapa darjah lebih rendah untuk memecahkan rekod dunia iaitu 47.8 darjah Celsius yang dicatatkan di Richmond pada 1939.

Cuaca panas digabung dengan angin kencang turut menyebabkan kebakaran hutan memaksa sesetengah kawasan mengharamkan pembakaran terbuka dan membuang putung rokok merata-rata.

Keadaan juga menyebabkan kualiti udara menurun dan mengganggu sistem penafasan penduduk.

BN does not practice favouritism in giving aid


PM-BEG

MO,8/1/2018, PEKAN: Barisan Nasional does not practice favouritism when giving aid to the people in the country, said Umno’s Voter Registration and Membership Bureau chairman Datuk Seri Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim. He said the aid was given to all those eligible, regardless of their religion, race or which political party their parents were affiliated with.

“Be grateful to Allah for the aid because there are still many people not as lucky, like children in countries facing crisis. “From my experience as chairman of the 1Malaysia Putera Club which has been sending aid to countries in conflicts, such as Palestine and Rohingya, our country is far better and we should be grateful,” he said.

He was speaking at the presentation of school aid by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to 2,000 primary students in the Pekan parliamentary constituency at the Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Convention Hall here on Sunday. Abdul Azeez also said the people should also “open their eyes” at all the efforts made by Barisan Nasional (BN) to help the people.

He said the ‘Happy to School’ programme was not only carried out in Pekan , but also 78 other parliamentary constituencies in the country, including 12 in Sabah. “I hope the aid will be optimised to ensure the schooling needs of our children is always taken care off,” he added. – Bernama

Sah Qobin penjelajah Grand Slam ke-60


81514740905_freesize-388x220MO, 8/1/2018, PUTRAJAYA  – The Explorer Club secara rasmi telah menyenaraikan penjelajah negara, Muhammad Muqharabbin Mokhtar atau Qobin sebagai penjelajah Grand Slam ke-60.

Datuk Akmar Hisham Mokhles berkata, berita gembira itu baharu diterima hari ini di mana Qobin tersenarai di nombor 44 untuk Grand Slam (last degree).

“Tak sangka Qobin tersenarai di nombor 44, dan ini bermakna secara keseluruhannya beliau menjadi warga dunia yang ke-60 berjaya bergelar Penjelajah Grand Slam.

“Senarai ini jauh mengatasi sasaran kami iaitu di nombor 70 sebelum ini berikutan Qobin perlu bersaing dengan ramai penjelajah dari negara lain yang cuba melengkapkan misi masing-masing sebelum akhir tahun lalu,” katanya menerusi laman sosial Facebook hari ini.

Beliau berkata, ini bermakna Qobin telah berjaya melengkapkan ekspedisinya lebih awal berbanding penjelajah lain yang turut memburu gelaran sama.

“Seperti yang saya maklumkan sebelum ini, ada penjelajah yang gagal menyempurnakan ekspedisi terakhir masing-masing untuk melengkapkan kesemua sembilan 9 ekspedisi wajib yang mesti dilakukan sebelum boleh bergelar Penjelajah Grand Slam,” katanya.

Sembilan ekspedisi wajib itu ialah menawan tujuh puncak gunung tertinggi di tujuh benua dan menakluk Kutub Utara serta Kutub Selatan.

Katanya, ada dia antara mereka masih gagal menyempurnakan penjelajahan di kutub dan ada yang gagal sampai ke puncak gunung terakhir akibat faktor cuaca buruk selain keadaan kesihatan penjelajah itu sendiri.

“Syabas Qobin. Nama anda telah tercatat secara rasmi hari ini sebagai penjelajah bertaraf dunia. Satu lakaran baharu sejarah Malaysia tercipta kini dalam bidang penjelajahan, #NegarakuMalaysia,” katanya.
