Patrols launched to keep men out of ladies coaches in KTM commuter


MO,23/2/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: Strict enforcement on men who sit in women’s only coaches provided by Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad on its commuter rail service was launched yesterday. KTMB and the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) have started operations and awareness campaigns to prevent the abuse of the women coaches. KTMB chief executive officer Mohd Rani Hisham said that KTMB was collaborating with SPAD to overcome the issue, which has caused growing concern among the public, through enforcement operations and awareness campaigns.

“KTMB and SPAD will also collaborate to re-evaluate the operational system to ensure that these coaches will be utilised by women passengers only. “Other than constant surveillance efforts by us, I would like to call on the public to assist us in reminding each other for the benefit of all passengers on the sensitivity and importance of the coaches,” he said in a statement He said the operation and campaign are among efforts to KTMB’s initiative to educate the public on its women’s only coaches placed in the middle of its trains complete with stickers.

The coaches were introduced by KTMB in 2010 to cater to the comfort and safety of its passengers, also included special waiting areas with pink stickers stating “Ladies Only”. Rani said there are also plans to introduce the special waiting areas at other main KTM stations. Recently the social media was abuzz when Facebook user Wan Amiasyazlia Meor lashed out at passengers who ignored and told her off when she asked them to leave because there was a passenger breastfeeding a child.

Amiasyazlia wrote she was on her way to Rawang from Shah Alam when she asked some 10 men to leave the women’s coach. Instead of leaving they berated her, calling her vile names.

12 Things Sex Therapists Wish You Knew

You won’t need to do the deed in front of your therapist—or with your therapist


You may have heard rumors that you’ll have to show, rather than tell, your problem in sex therapy. And if you’ve watched the series Masters of Sex, that’s definitely what happened there—along with sex surrogate therapy, in which the researchers or their staff engaged in sexual contact to help patients.

But sex therapists say that they won’t be watching—or participating—in your sexual activities: They’ll just be helping you recover that loving feeling.  “Professional therapy never includes sex, touching, or removal of clothing,” says Shannon Chavez, PsyD, CST, a licensed clinical psychologist and AASECT certified sex therapist in Beverly Hills, California. “It is similar to traditional therapy, other than dealing primarily with sexual health, solution-focused and short-term. I describe my therapy approach as talk therapy with an eclectic use of coaching, adult sex education, and behavioral approaches and exercises. We are learning tools for mindfulness, stress management, and self-care.” (Here are the nine things that happen to your body when you stop having sex.)

 There may be a medical reason for sexual issues


Sex therapy will help with many sexual problems, but there could also be a health issue that requires medical intervention—such as erectile dysfunction or female sexual dysfunction. “Many couples do not know that the cause of some problems with sexual desire or arousal may be caused by a medical condition,” says therapist Pepper Schwartz, PhD, professor of sociology at the University of Washington and the author of 22 books, including American Couples: Money, Work and Sex. “If a woman’s relationship is strong, but she has been experiencing persistent sexual problems lasting six months or longer, it may be a medical issue, rather than a relationship issue. The most common female sexual dysfunction is low desire that causes distress, or hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). A therapist or health-care provider can go over a long checklist of possible reasons for the loss of sexual desire and help determine what the cause might be. The solution might not be solved in a few sessions, but the first step towards changing a sexual issue that is interfering with one’s happiness or relationship is to admit it is a problem and find out what appropriate options for treatment are available.”

Communication is the key to a healthy sex life


Talking about sex can feel awkward for a lot of couples—whether they’re having a perfectly healthy sex relationship or not. But experts say that communicating can help stave off problems. “Talking about sex is just as important as having sex,” Chavez says. “It helps you assess what you want and builds the language in which you can describe it. If you feel uncomfortable talking about sex openly and honestly with a partner then it will be difficult to share your desires or disclose when there are concerns.”

Chavez advises that sex talk doesn’t just have to happen in the bedroom. “I recommend talking about sex over a morning cup of coffee or tea, while taking a nice walk, or snuggling in each other’s arms.”(Don’t miss these 48 simple tricks to improve your sex life!)

It’s OK to be sexually attracted to other people


Attraction happens–even if you’re happily married—and you don’t have to feel guilty about feeling it. “Making a commitment does not suddenly rewire our physiology to no longer experience desire or notice attractiveness outside of your partner!” says Shadeen Francis, MFT, a marriage and family therapist specializing in sex therapy. “If you were attracted to people before getting into the relationship, you will very likely be attracted to people during. It doesn’t mean you want to pursue anything sexual—or physical, or emotional—with that person. The belief that all sexual stimuli must be acted on is a fear-based myth that underlies problematic sexual behaviors like assault and infidelity.” So feeling it is one thing–but acting on it is another.

You should feel like your therapist is a good fit


Just as general therapists often have different types of training and approaches, sex therapy practitioners may have different types of education and approaches. You’ll want to ensure that you feel comfortable with the treatment methods and with your therapist. “Take time in the first session to ask any questions that you might have about the therapist’s training, background, approach, or anything else that you feel would be helpful for you to know,” says Kelli Young, MEd, BScOT, a sex therapist and psychotherapist practicing in Toronto. “Think of the first session as an assessment interview for both you and the therapist. At the end of the first session you should have a good sense whether the therapist is right for you, and the plan for working on the issues that brought you to therapy.” Make sure you know these 12 things about your sex therapist before you seek counseling.

You shouldn’t judge your mate’s preferences

You may not always see eye to eye with your mate on what’s a turn-on—but judging your partner for feeling that way isn’t constructive to your relationship. “If your partner is into something you’re not, don’t bring shame into the discussion,” says sex therapist Carla Rosinski, MA, LMHC. “We have enough baggage about sex as it is. Just as with any communication in a relationship, you want both you and your partner to feel safe to talk about feelings and desires without judgment. If your partner brings up something you’re not into and really not willing to try out, be kind and honest about it. Or just take the risk and experiment!”

Never let problems fester


Many people let sexual problems go on for months or years unaddressed—experts advise that the sooner you get help, the better. “My best advice is not to let the problem go on too long,” Schwartz says. “Sometimes years go by and the longer couples deny the problem or do nothing about it except skip sex or engage in ‘mercy sex,’ the harder it is to solve the problem.” Besides problems in the bedroom, here eight medical reasons why you could have a low sex drive.

You should mix it up to get out of a rut

Therapists say that you shouldn’t take sex so seriously. “Good sex is fun and playful, so when you reach a bump in the road, try to have a sense of humor and think creatively,” Young says. “Trying something new can add fun and excitement to your sexual relationship: a new position, sexy music, romantic lighting, colognes, lotions, lubricants…the possibilities are endless.”

You won’t have to do anything that makes you uncomfortable

Sex therapy is about helping you have a more fulfilling sex life—not forcing you to engage in behavior that makes you squeamish. “Sex therapy is about meeting your client where they are at,” says Chavez. “It is about creating a safe and comfortable environment where you can explore sex. Discomfort and shame are the first things we want to reduce. The benefit of sex therapy is that you will have access to many resources, tools, and options for sexual healing.” (Need a boost in your sex life? Here are eight natural remedies to rev up your sex drive!)

Scheduling sex isn’t a bad idea

Penciling in sex on your calendar may seem a little ridiculous, but the experts say that it’s often the key to maintaining the spark in a long-term relationship—especially one where life demands are getting in the way of their relationship. “Scheduled sex can be just as erotic, passionate, and pleasurable as spontaneous encounters,” Francis says. “Plus, as your responsibilities increase, scheduling sex makes it more likely to happen.”

You don’t need to be in a relationship


While sex therapy practices mostly deal with couples, people who aren’t currently in a sexual relationship will benefit as well—especially if they have problems that prevent them from being intimate with other people, such as a history of abuse or negative thoughts about sex. “Sexuality is a vital part of all our lives and we can greatly benefit from individual work around it and how it intersects with other areas in life,” Rosinski says. (Make sure you avoid these 10 aphrodisiacs that are a total waste of money!)

Therapy doesn’t mean your relationship is doomed

Many people imagine that therapy means that they’re failing at their relationship—and that it’s the last stop before breakup. “Actually, the opposite is usually true,” Young says. “Most of the couples who come to see me care deeply about each other, and they have decided to take steps to move their relationship forward to the next level. Recognizing that your sexual relationship is not where you want it to be, and seeking support to overcome obstacles is a sign of strength. The right therapist can help couples to make significant improvements and lasting changes in their relationship.” (Don’t forget these 14 things you should never do in bed with your partner!)

Najib: Two possible scenarios if Dr M returns as PM


MO,23/2/2018, PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Harapan’s choice of Tun Dr Mahathir as prime ministerial candidate and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah as his deputy will result in two possible scenarios, says Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak . “The Opposition’s choice of candidates shows how fragile its leadership is if left to rule the country because its prime minister candidate is only temporary,” the Prime Minister wrote on his blog on Friday (Feb 23).

Najib said in the first scenario, the former prime minister would break his promise to hand the coveted position to Pakatan de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim once the latter is released from jail. Najib said this scenario is possible as in 2016, Dr Mahathir said he would never allow a man with poor morals to lead the country and had once said Anwar was too old to lead the country.

If Dr Mahathir breaks his promise, Najib foresees that PKR would revolt against Dr Mahathir to take power. In the likelihood that Dr Mahathir honours his promise, Najib said the second scenario would lead to the most critical case of nepotism in Malaysia. He said this is because the country’s prime minister and deputy prime minister would be helmed by a husband and wife team – Anwar and Dr Wan Azizah.Najib said this would likely lead to the rakyat rebelling against the leadership structure. “We can predict that if the Opposition wins the upcoming election, it will be busy fighting over the prime minister’s post for two to three years before it can begin work to serve the people,” Najib added.

Pos Malaysia issues stamp series on Malaysia’s 3 longest rivers


MO,23/2/2018, KUALA LUMPUR: Pos Malaysia will issue the latest stamps series featuring the three longest rivers in Malaysia.

7 Signs You Might Be Headed For a Heart Attack

You get angry over the littlest things


Tend to morph into the Hulk when you’re upset? Those fiery emotions can drastically increase your risk for a heart attack. Researchers at the University of Australia questioned 313 patients who had suffered suspected heart attacks about their anger levels before the onset of symptoms. They found that patients were 8.5 times more likely to have a heart attack in the two hours following an intense outburst of anger, defined as “very angry, body tense, clenching fists or teeth.” The more often you’re angry, the higher your chances for a heart attack. These 15 doctor-approved tips to prevent heart disease could save your life.

You spend most of your time in front of a screen


Yes, that includes working on your computer. A study from the University College London reports that people who watch TV or work on a computer for four or more hours a day increase their risk of an event associated with cardiovascular disease, like a heart attack, by 125 percent. Long periods of sitting deplete the body’s supply of lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat and prevents clogged arteries. If you spend most of your day plopped behind a desk, take a brief walk after every 20 minutes or try a standing desk. You can burn 30 percent more calories when you stand than when you sit.  Here are a cardiologist’s tips for sneaking in exercise.

You log less than six hours of sleep each night


Many adults struggle to get the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep each night, but consistently missing that mark could be deadly. A study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment & Health found that Japanese men who got less than six hours of sleep were five times more likely to have a heart attack than men who slept seven or eight hours a night. Another study from Jichi Medical School in Tochigi, Japan, found the same risk applied to Japanese women who got less than six hours of sleep.

You live in a smoggy area


Smog is just as bad for your heart as it is for your lungs. Researchers used hourly air pollution measurements in South Boston to determine how exposure to particulate matter (small combustion particles that come from fuel burning and vehicle emissions) affected patients in this area who had heart attacks. They found that exposure to high concentrations of air pollution increased the likelihood of a heart attack by 48 percent in the two hours before patients first experienced heart attack symptoms. The risk went up to 69 percent when people were exposed to high levels of air pollution for 24 hours before the onset of symptoms. Check out the Environmental Protection Agency’s website to see how smog affects your neighborhood.

You’re divorced


Divorce can cause literal heartache. Researchers at the Duke University School of Medicine conducted an 18-year-study of nearly 16,000 men and women between the ages of 45 and 80 who had been married at least once. Every two years, researchers assessed the participants’ marital status and overall health. Divorced women were 25 percent more likely to have a heart attack than those who stayed married. Women who had two or more divorces were 77 percent more likely to have a heart attack. As for the men, the risk of heart attack stayed the same regardless of whether they were married or divorced—at first. But if they divorced at least twice, their heart attack risk increased by 30 percent. Here are some simple ways to reduce your risk of heart attack.

It’s Daylight Saving Time


When researchers examined three years of Michigan hospital records to track the number of heart attacks that required stent insertions, they found that the frequency of these procedures fluctuated when Daylight Saving Time started and ended. On the Monday after “springing ahead” an hour, there was an 24 percent increase in heart attacks. (However, on the Tuesday after “falling back,” there were 21 percent fewer daily heart attacks). Since the total heart attack counts for those weeks were not drastically different from other weeks, researchers determined that the time changes didn’t necessarily make the heart attacks happen, but rather made them likely to occur sooner than they otherwise would have. This is probably due to disrupted sleep-wake cycles and increased stress at the start of a new week of work. Here are tricks to make the Daylight Saving switch less toxic to your heart.

You live in an area with extreme temperatures


Studies show that both extreme cold and extreme heat can put people at risk for heart attacks. Using data from cardiac patients in the Worcester Heart Attack Study, scientists found that exposure to temperatures lower than 17º F in the two days prior to a heart attack increased patients’ risk by 36 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, British researchers found that once the temperature reaches 68º F, each increase of 1.8º F increased the risk of heart attack by 2 percent over the next one to six hours. On the first day of a hot spell, that risk jumps up to 6.5 percent per 1.8º F increase. Learn what heart doctors do to protect their own hearts.
