Bantah sekolah diswasta
KUALA LUMPUR: Kesatuan Perkhidmatan Perguruan Kebangsaan (KPPK) semalam membantah langkah menswastakan sekolah kerajaan.
Setiausaha Agungnya Lok Yim Pheng berkata, dasar baru kerajaan berhubung kerjasama awam dan swasta dalam pendidikan perlu terhad kepada penambahbaikan infrastruktur serta peralatan dan tidak seharusnya menyentuh aspek akademik.
Katanya, penswastaan bidang lain akan melonjakkan kos dan menjadikan persekolahan terlalu mahal dan di luar jangkaan golongan miskin.
Beliau mengulas kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yang juga Menteri Pelajaran, di Limbang minggu lalu bahawa kerajaan menimbangkan untuk menswastakan sekolah tertentu atau membenarkan pihak swasta menguruskan pembaikan dan penyelenggaraan. – Bernama

I lost my dear uncle Prof Kamarudin bin Mat Salleh, at about 6.50 pm 2 days ago. He has been on a life support system at the HUKM for the past few weeks. He suffered from Cancer which originally attacked his kidney & then spread unto his lungs.
This will give us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.. .. especially the GPS warning.
I know that I have my HOME location keyed into the GMXT unit.. I will now remove it, or else put in the Local Police station as my home address.
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football match. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.
When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen.
The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.
I never thought of this…….
This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet… Etc…was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.’
When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text ‘hubby’ in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
Moral of the story:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc….
And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.
Also, when you’re being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.

Ma, without you, there would be no me.
Your love, your attention, your guidance,
have made me who I am.
Without you, I would be lost,
without direction or purpose.
You showed me the way
to serve, to accomplish, to persevere.
Without you, there would be an empty space
I could never fill, no matter how I tried.
Instead, because of you,
I have joy, contentment, satisfaction and peace.
Thank you, Ma.
I have always loved you
and I always will.
