Apa nak malu dengan haid Katrina Kaif sertai kempen PadManChallenge



FILEM  Pad Man beri kesan besar kepada dunia perfileman Bollywood.

Diinspirasi dari kisah benar usahawan India Arunachalam Murugunantham, kempen #PadmanChallenge diperkenalkan bagi memberitahu rakyat negara itu haid bukan sesuatu yang menjijikkan.

Bermula minggu lepas, kempen ini mendapat sambutan bukan sahaja dalam kalangan rakyat malah selebriti popular Bollywood antaranya Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif dan Jacqueline Fernandez.

Mereka yang menyahut cabaran ini perlu mengambil gambar sambil memegang tuala wanita dan memuatnaiknya ke laman sosial.

#PadmanChallenge dimulakan Arunachalam yang menghantar tag kepada Akshay Kumar pelakon utama filem ini dan isterinya Twinkle Khanna yang bertindak selaku penerbit.

Cabaran itu kemudiannya dipanjangkan kepada Aamir Khan dan Shabana Azmi dan kini menjadi sambutan hangat bukan hanya oleh personaliti hiburan malah juga bintang sukan.

Bukan hanya untuk mempromosi filem itu, #PadmanChallenge bertujuan mengubah stigma mengenai haid.

Diarahkan oleh R Balki filem ini memaparkan kisah Arunachalam yang mencipta mesin membuat tuala wanita kos murah di kampungnya bagi memastikan darah haid dibuang dengan cara bersih dan sewajarnya.

Dia mendapat ilham itu selepas mendapati wanita di kampungnya tidak mampu membeli tuala wanita yang mahalk sehingga terpaksa menggunakan kain biasa dan daun.

Meskipun terpaksa membayar harga mahal kerana ditingalkan isterinya usaha  Arunachalam dikitiraf pada 2014 apabila dinamakan sebagai salah seorang individu paling berpengaruh oleh majalah Time.

Dron Digunakan Bagi Membanteras Tempat Pembiakan Nyamuk Di Melaka – Amanz


Kami cukup tertarik dengan perkembangan teknologi dron. Bermula sebagai alat mengajar teknik menembak oleh tentera sebelum berfungsi sebagai peninjau di medan perang, ia kini digunakan untuk menghantar barangan. Di Melaka dron mula digunakan sebagai senjata membanteras tempat pembiakan nyamuk.

Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Melaka Tengah ialah yang pertama di Malaysia yang menggunakan dron bagi memburu tempat pembiakan nyamuk sebelum memasukkan ubat anti jentik-jentik ke dalamnya. Sebelum ini Pejabat Kesihatan menggunakan lori yang dilengkapi gondola untuk memeriksa bangunan tinggi bagi mencari takungan air. Dengan penggunaan dron pemeriksaan boleh dilakukan sehingga ketinggian 200 meter yang lebih tinggi dari had maksimum gondola semasa.

Sebuah dron bernilai RM2000 telah diubahsuai bagi melakukan tugas ini. Ini bukan projek pertama dron digunakan untuk tugas-tugas unik di Malaysia. Sebelum ini Kementerian Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani  memulakan ujian menggunakan dron untuk menanam padi.

Bio-terrorism: Interpol gives thumbs-up to Malaysia’s cross-agency approach


Dennis Adriao

MO,9/2/2018, PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia’s multi-agency approach in dealing with the threat of bio-terrorism is exemplary, said Interpol specialised officer Dennis Adriao. Adriao, who is attached to Interpol’s bio-terrorism prevention unit at its headquarters in Lyon, France, said he was very impressed with the level of preparedness showed by the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) as well as other relevant agencies during the three-day Project Vector: Bio Terrorism Evidence Exploitation Workshop held at the KL International Airport and Putrajaya.

“Malaysia has been a fantastic host (to the workshop). “It is very good to see the police working very well with other agencies in ensuring that the authorities have the capacity to deal with any threat related to bio-terrorism,” he told a press conference Friday at the conclusion of the workshop. Adriao also saluted Malaysian authorities’ preparedness in the area of bio-terrorism. “I am very impressed with PDRM personnel and other government departments working closely together to ensure the Malaysian people stay safe.

“The objective of the exercise is to assess Malaysia’s capacity in dealing with bio-terrorism smuggling and to see where we can assist in capacity-building. “Interpol is always ready to assist its member countries in being ready to face any threat, especially bio-terrorism,” he said. Bukit Aman CID director Comm Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd said the exercise was also a platform for all the agencies involved to improve their existing standard operating procedures in dealing with bio-terrorism threats. “It is also a way for PDRM and other agencies to improve multi-agency coordination during such emergencies.

“We hope such exercises can be conducted annually – thus, we hope Interpol can assist us in this matter,” he said. Comm Wan Ahmad added that a total of 21 personnel from various agencies including PDRM, the Immigration, Customs, and Chemistry departments, as well as Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd were involved in the exercise. Among others present at the press conference were Bukit Aman deputy CID director Deputy Comm Datuk Raja Shahrom Raja Abdullah, Bukit Aman deputy Management director Deputy Comm Datuk T. Narenasegaran, and Interpol officer Zoran Sandev.

12 Beauty Routines You’re Doing Wrong


Applying sunscreen before applying makeup

iStock/Kasiam

You shouldn’t apply sunscreen before foundation, says Los Angeles dermatologist Jessica Wu, MD. “If you use sunscreen first, and then you use an anti-aging product and then a moisturizer, and then makeup, you’re disturbing that sunscreen film,” she adds. Applying other products on top of sunscreen removes some of the SPF, leading to uneven coverage. Instead, apply a thin layer of sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to your skin after you finish applying makeup.

Depending on your makeup’s SPF for sun protection

A tinted moisturizer or foundation with SPF is better than one that doesn’t offer sun protection, but most people don’t apply enough SPF-containing makeup to adequately protect themselves from harmful UV rays, according to Health magazine, and you often miss your ears and neck. Also, your makeup’s SPF may only protect you from UVB rays and not UVA rays (both increase your skin cancer risk and aging). Instead, apply both your SPF-containing cosmetic products and a separate broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Make sure you avoid these other awful beauty tips that everyone should ignore.

Scrubbing with a washcloth

Cleaning your face with a towel isn’t the best way to remove the dirt, grime, and oil. The fibers in your washcloth can irritate your skin and tear at its protective layer, which can contribute to the development of fine lines and dryness, says New York City dermatologist Mona Gohara, MD. Instead, she recommends using your hands to rub in or wash off products and cleansers.

Including toner in your routine

If you don’t have acne and you use a mild face wash (or other drying products, like a retinol cream), chances are you don’t need toner. Toners clean the skin and minimize pores, and you risk over-drying if you’re already using a myriad of other products, says Dr. Gohara. Unless you have particularly oily skin, reserve toner to treat an occasional breakout. Here are more skin care tips dermatologists follow themselves.

Over-cleansing

Oily skin is not necessarily bad: Dr. Gohara says that the natural oils produced by your face are necessary for maintaining your skin’s protective layer. Many people assume that tingling feeling after a wash is a good thing, but that tightness means your skin has been stripped of its natural oils. Instead, use a gentle cleanser and apply moisturizer afterward. You could also consider washing only once a day—at night—to avoid overdoing it.

Removing polish with acetone-based products

Travis Rathbone for Reader’s Digest

Acetone-based nail polish removers make removing that stubborn glitter polish a breeze, but the harsh ingredient can dry out your nails and the surrounding skin, according to SELF. This dryness could weaken your nails and cause breakage. Try a non-acetone remover with less aggressive solvents like ethyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, and propylene carbonate.

Considering eye cream a necessity

There’s no harm in using an eye cream, but you might not actually need it. Unless you have irritation or struggle with wrinkles on the skin around your eyes, you can forgo the additional moisturizer, says Dr. Wu. Instead, choose a cheaper alternative, like petroleum jelly, or stick to a simple moisturizer.

Slathering on fragrant lotions

You might like your face to smell like roses, but that doesn’t mean your pores do. Dr. Gohara says that fragrant lotions, even seemingly natural products, have the potential to irritate your skin. “Fragrance is the No. 1 allergen in cosmetics and skin care,” dermatologist Audrey Kunin, MD, told Today. Instead, Dr. Gohara says to opt for lotions that are fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free, which tend to be less irritating. Plus, look out for these other toxic ingredients hiding in your beauty products.

Trusting an anti-aging cleanser to reverse the clock

At the first sign of a fine line, it’s natural to grab anything with an “anti-aging” label, but cleansers don’t have the ability to turn back time. “Cleanser stays on your face for about six seconds—no anti-aging ingredient can affect your skin in six seconds,” Boston dermatologist Ranella Hirsch, MD, told Oprah.com. Instead, use an anti-aging moisturizer or an overnight retinol cream.

Using too much retinol

Although studies have shown that prescription Retin-A and its over-the-counter cousin retinol boost collagen production in the skin, heal blemishes, and reduce wrinkles, the product must be used in moderate, monitored doses. Using more than a pea-sized amount can over-dry the skin, says Dr. Gohara. Many of her patients mistakenly use too much. “If someone can tell you’re using a retinol—because you have red, flaky skin—you’re overusing it. Only if your skin can tolerate it, do it once a night,” she explains. If you’re prone to irritation, try using it every other day. Check out these other skin care rules to live by at every stage of your life.

Styling with mega-hold hair spray

A stiff, sticky hair spray might keep every stray strand of hair in place, but the product may weaken your locks over time. These hairsprays “are usually high in alcohol, which makes hair dry and brittle,” Paradi Mirmirani, MD, a San Francisco dermatologist, told Prevention. “Once you comb or brush your hair, that residue causes the hair to break and fall out.” Instead, use light-hold hairsprays or hairsprays that substitute alcohol-based ingredients for organic oil-based ingredients.

Skipping a nightly wash

“Never go to bed with makeup on,” Harold Lancer, MD, a Beverly Hills dermatologist, told Health magazine. “Without cleansing, cosmetics get into pores, which can lead to congestion.” And that can cause acne and blackheads. You might be tired and ready for bed, but that’s no reason to punish your skin. Besides, these pros know what they’re talking about. Don’t miss these other non-negotiable beauty rules that experts swear by.
