Gerakan Kedah yakin peluang cerah rampas DUN Derga dan Sidam


ALOR SETAR — Parti Gerakan Kedah yakin mempunyai peluang cerah untuk memenangi semula kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Derga dan Sidam pada pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU14) nanti.

Pengerusinya Datuk Dr Cheah Soon Hai berkata keyakinan itu reaksi daripada masyarakat akar umbi terutamanya masyarakat Cina di kerusi DUN berkenaan yang kini disandang pihak pembangkang yang mahukan perubahan lebih baik di kawasan berkenaan selepas ini.

“Peluang memang cerah kita boleh cakap, ia berlainan sikit, kita tengok reaksi daripada rakyat pun berubah dan kita tengok depa cakap dalam bahasa Cina, ubah ini dan dalam satu maksud yang lain dalam sebutan Cina, kita sebut ubah daripada satu penipuan,” katanya.

Ada satu peringkat, wakil rakyat pembangkang meminta supaya rakyat mencari Dr Cheah atau UMNO jika berdepan sebarang masalah dan perkara itu disebarkan melalui Facebook, katanya kepada pemberita selepas ceramah bertajuk ‘Menolak Pakatan Hipokrasi’ di Padang Awam Taman Derga Jaya di sini malam tadi. Turut sama berceramah adalah Ketua Penerangan UMNO negeri Datuk Othman Abdul.

Pada 16 Mac lepas, Presiden Gerakan Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong dilaporkan menyatakan parti itu mencadangkan Cheah dan anggota Jawatankuasa Gerakan Kedah Tan Kok Seong sebagai calon untuk bertanding masing-masing di kerusi DUN Derga dan Sidam pada PRU14.-BERNAMA

1. Prince Charles

Prince-CharlesMICK TSIKAS/ShutterstockDespite rumors that the line of succession would skip Prince Charles—he is the least popular royal after all—he’ll still be next in line for the throne as Queen Elizabeth’s oldest son. Already 69 years old, he will be the oldest person in British history to be crowned.

2. Prince William

BN manifesto relevant to Sabah, Sarawak needs


MO,10/4/2018, KOTA KINABALU: The pledges contained in Barisan Nasional (BN) Manifesto covering the Sabah and Sarawak agenda are proof of the coalition’s effort to live up to its promises and words. Political analysts and academicians here feel that the items listed are doable and practical, and are enthusiastic over efforts to incorporate more historical facts of Sabah and Sarawak in the school syllabus, as well as the setting up of Native and Indigenous People Studies Institute at Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) and Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS).

Unimas political scientist Dr Arnold Puyok observed that the manifesto segment for Sabah and Sarawak is relevant to the the needs of both states, while hailing the preservation of culture and customs through the proposed Institute. Sabah Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) senior lecturer Tony Paridi Bagang echoed the sentiment, saying that it reflects the demands and aspirations of the people in both states. He believesthese will resonate well with voters.

While the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) spells out that the rights of Sabah and Sarawak will be realised by consensus, new items like providing special assistance for entrepreneurs in both states will allow fresh graduates to get involved in various business sectors aggressively, he added. “On improving security assets under Eastern Sabah Safety Zone (Esszone), it shows that the government looks at the threats there seriously.

“As threats are continuously evolving, Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) must always be one step ahead as far as security is concerned,” said Tony who is from the Administrative Science and Policy Studies Faculty. “On the proposed Institut Kajian Peribumi and Penduduk Asli, it is recognition to the indigenous people of Sabah and Sarawak, allowing them to channel their voice and aspirations so that no one is left behind.

UMS senior lecturer and researcher Dr Zaini Othman pointed out that the manifesto is consistent with BN’s politics of development when it comes to Sabah and Sarawak, as upgrading infrastructure will still be the central focus for the next five years if the mandate is returned to them. “The plan to set up the new Institute at UMS and Unimas should also be welcomed by the majority of Sabahans and Sarawakians,” he added.

Meanwhile, UMS vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr D Kamarudin D Mudin was happy to hear about the new proposed Institute and that academics were included within the Manifesto scope. At present UMS has one centre and two research units dealing with the particular subject matter; namely Ethnography Studies and Development Centre, Borneo Heritage Research Unit as well as Research Unit for languages and linguistics of Sabah. UMS also has a Kadazan Dusun chair.

“We are also hoping that this manifesto will materialise and complement our direction in UMS on the aspect of preserving the natives’ languages,” saidKamarudin, adding that the Institute hopes to tackle all issues including socioeconomy.

Perisian Tebusan Baru Memerlukan Anda Bermain PUBG Sebelum Dapat Mengakses Fail Anda – Amanz


Perisian tebusan atau ransomware bukan sesuatu yang baru. Kebiasaannya, pengguna akan diminta untuk membuat bayaran sebelum dapat mengakses sesuatu fail atau dokumen yang telah terkesan dengan sesuatu perisian tebusan, tetapi ia sedikit berbeza untuk PUBG Ransomware.

PUBG Ransomware

PUBG Ransomware akan membuatkan pelbagai fail dan dokumen pada komputer anda melalui penyulitan dan tidak boleh dibuka. Namun, pengodam berkenaan meminta anda untuk memainkan permainan PUBG untuk suatu tempoh masa sebelum proses nyah-sulitan dilakukan.

Perkara ini mungkin dianggap kelakar oleh sesetengah pengguna, tetapi hal berkaitan ransomware ini tidak boleh dipandang enteng. Bagi anda yang menggunakan komputer, sentiasa berhati-hati dengan program yang dimuat-turun dan dipasang pada komputer anda untuk mengelak sebarang perisian hasad terpasang pada komputer anda.

Sumber itu memaklumkan tiada cadangan rasmi telah dibuat tentang perkara itu, namun perbincangan awal telah diadakan mengenai pangkalan tentera di Vanuatu.

“Prospek untuk menempatkan pangkalan tentera China berhampiran Australia telah dibincangkan pada peringkat tertinggi di Canberra dan Washington,” menurut laporan tersebut.

Sementara itu, Menteri Luar, Julie Bishop berkata, pegawai Vanuatu mengesahkan belum menerima cadangan rasmi dari Beijing.

“China kini terlibat dalam kegiatan pelaburan infrastruktur di seluruh seluruh dunia. Saya tetap yakin Australia adalah pilihan strategik Vanuatu,” ujarnya. 

Terdahulu, Fairfax Media melaporkan perbincangan awal melibatkan perjanjian akses awal yang mana kapal tentera laut China akan berlabuh untuk diservis dan mengisi semula minyak sebelum belayar ke pangkalan tentera itu.

Difahamkan, rancangan seumpama itu akan menandakan pengembangan aspirasi tentera China dalam meluaskan aktiviti mereka di Asia terutamanya di Laut China Selatan di mana ia telah membina pulau buatan dilengkapi landasan pesawat di kawasan yang menjadi pertikaian multilateral sebelum ini. – Reuters

Berjaya bangunkan umat, tinggikan syiar Islam


SEREMBAN 10 APRIL 2018. Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan menyerahkan replika cek kepada Pengerusi surau Perigi Talan Kampung Bintongan Rembau, Mat Lasim Othman.STR/MOHD AMIN JALIL.

MO, 10/4/2018, REMBAU: Usaha kerajaan negeri membangunkan umat dan meninggikan syiar Islam terbukti berjaya, termasuk dalam aspek kepentingan modal insan.

Menteri Besar merangkap Pengerusi Barisan Nasional (BN) negeri, Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, berkata selain membina dan menaik taraf masjid serta surau, kerajaan negeri juga memberi tumpuan pada bidang pendidikan agama.

Katanya, antara inisiatif dilaksanakan ialah mewujudkan Kelas Agama Petang (KAP) sejak 2005 bagi mempertingkat pendidikan asas agama dalam kalangan generasi muda, dan melakukan transformasi terhadap sekolah menengah agama negeri (SMAN).

“Melalui KAP, ramai anak muda mendapat pendidikan asas agama yang sempurna dan menguasainya dengan baik. Mereka juga menguasai bacaan al-Quran dengan lancar.

“Seterusnya, transformasi terhadap SMAN dengan kerjasama Kerajaan Persekutuan memberi impak amat baik apabila prestasi dan pencapaian pelajar dalam keputusan peperiksaan melonjak secara mendadak.

“Malah, negeri ini berjaya menduduki tempat pertama peringkat kebangsaan tujuh tahun berturut-turut dalam pencapaian keputusan Sijil Tinggi Agama Malaysia (STAM),” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap pada Majlis Perasmian Surau Perigi Talan, Kampung Bintongan di sini, malam tadi.

Yang turut hadir, Mufti Negeri Sembilan, Datuk Mohd Yusof Ahmad; Pengarah Jabatan Hal Ehwal Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (JHEAINS), Datuk Selamat Paigo; Pegawai Daerah Rembau, Amino Agus Suyub; dan Pengerusi surau berkenaan, Mat Lazim Othman.

Mengulas lanjut, Mohamad yang juga Pengerusi Majlis Agama Islam Negeri Sembilan (MAINS) berkata, usaha positif itu tidak harus terhenti dan akan dipacu lagi jika rakyat memberi mandat untuk BN terus menerajui kerajaan negeri.

Dalam pada itu, beliau mengingatkan umat Islam supaya menjadikan institusi ibadat tempat bersatu padu dan bukannya medan perpecahan sesama mereka.

Meskipun wujud perbezaan pandangan dan pendapat, beliau berkata, jangan sehingga membawa perpecahan serta permusuhan yang akhirnya merugikan orang Melayu dan umat Islam sendiri.

“Kita kena tunjuk umat Islam itu kuat supaya dihormati. Apa gunanya jika orang lain tidak memandang dan memperlekehkan kita.

“Kita harus sedar bahawa amat penting untuk orang Melayu kuat demi memastikan syiar Islam dapat terus bersinar dan memajukan umat,” katanya.

Pada majlis itu, Mohamad turut menyampaikan bantuan RM10,000 kepada surau terbabit bagi melengkapkan kemudahan bersesuaian dan melaksakanakan aktiviti keagamaan.
