Test water heater circuit breakers

PETALING JAYA: Home owners and tenants have been advised to test the automatic circuit breaker switches in their homes after a pharmacist was believed to have been electrocuted recently while using a water heater.

Consumers must also ensure that the automatic circuit breaker sensitivity does not exceed the current strength of 100mA (milliampere) or 0.1A and is tested at least once a month to ensure it works properly.

“The automatic circuit breaker switches found in the electrical case in your home are to protect you and your family from the dangers of electric shock,” the Energy Commission said in an e-mail in response to the mishap.

Pharmacist D. Anitha, 27, is believed to have been electrocuted in the shower at her home in Segamat, Johor, on Aug 12. A water heater was used.

A simple way to test the automatic circuit breaker is to switch it on by pressing the test button (marked “T”) and it should trip when pressed.

The switch can be restored to its original position.

“If the automatic circuit breaker switch does not trip after the test button is pressed, you should immediately consult a registered electrical contractor for inspection and replacement of the device,” said the commission.

It also said that if an electric water heater was installed in the bathroom, users must make sure that the automatic circuit breaker switch had a sensitivity not exceeding 10mA or 0.01A on the water heater circuit.

The commission said Anitha’s case was still being investigated.

So far, only one case of electrocution from water heater had been reported to the commission this year and one last year, the commission said in the e-mail.

Last September, a Japanese couple were electrocuted by a faulty water heater in their apartment in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur.

The husband, a factory manager, and his wife, both 38, lived in Malaysia with their young son.

Duo plead guilty to causing public nuisance after sexy photos go viral

Public nuisance: Low (right) and How leaving the magistrate's court in Ipoh. They were fined RM400 each.

Photographs of Low Kah Wai, 27, – clad in black pants and shoes without any shirt on but a bow-tie – and How Jo Yee, 21, who wore only white undergarments, a wedding veil and heels, went viral after social media users posted them on the Internet.

Public nuisance: Low (right) and How leaving the magistrate’s court in Ipoh. They were fined RM400 each.

IPOH: The two models involved with the sexy pre-wedding photoshoot here have been fined RM400 each, in default one month’s jail.

Magistrate Haslinda A. Raof made the judgment yesterday after the freelance models pleaded guilty to causing nuisance in public at a traffic light in front of the CIMB bank branch in Jalan Sultan Yussuf here on Monday.

Their counsel Andrew Soong, when met after the proceedings, said his clients and their families were stressed out since the photographs went viral online.

He said they were mulling action against those who published the photographs online.

Earlier, DPP Harris Ong Mohd Jeffery Ong, in pushing for the maximum penalty of RM400, said the duo’s action caught public attention with some of those photographs captured and circulated through social media.

“The country is made up of a multi-cultural society and their action is unacceptable,” he added.

In mitigation, Soong said both models would apologise to the people who were offended by their action.

Both, who were charged under Section 268 of the Penal Code, paid the fine.

Only Rm400 fined? The authorities should consider higher sentence, on moral ground because these kind of indecent act not our way of life in Malaysia.

Wanted by Interpol — sex blogger who has gone missing

Sex bloggers in hot soup

PETALING JAYA: Interpol is on the hunt for sex blogger Alvin Tan to get him to return to Malaysia and face trial over several charges against him.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said his officers were liaising with the international police to bring Tan back and surrender his passport to the court.

“Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of Tan should come forward immediately,” he said yesterday.

Tan, 26, and his co-blogger Vivian Lee, 25, claimed trial last year to three charges under the Film Censorship Act, Sedition Act and the Penal Code.

The two – famously known as the Alivivi pair – still face two charges under the Film Censorship Act and Sedition Act for a “Ramadan greeting” that was posted on their blog last year.

The posting contained the words Selamat Berbuka Puasa (dengan bak kut teh… wangi, enak, menyelerakan) and was placed over their pornographic images.

That posting caused a stir among Malaysians for their insensitivity.

Following the uproar, they removed the posting and replaced it with a picture of them eating ketupat, rendang and curry puffs.

Sessions Court judge Abdul Rashid Daud granted an application on May 12 this year by the pair to have their passports released so that they could shoot a documentary in Singapore.

The judge granted them the period between May 18 and June 3.

The court has since issued a warrant of arrest for Tan and, last Friday, forfeited the RM20,000 bail that was imposed on him after he failed to return his passport.

A check by The Star revealed that they have taken down their Facebook page

The Jews by Che Det

1.​The Jews claim they are the “chosen” people of God. Despite being persecuted by the European Christians who accused them of the crucifixion of Christ; despite being forced to live in ghettoes in Europe, despite having to endure periodical massacres (pogroms) by Europeans, the Jews never ceased to believe that they are superior beings who are the chosen people of God.

2.​The Jews are Semitic people. So are the Arabs. But today the Jews behave as if they are the only Semitic people. They accused everyone of being anti-Semitic if they criticised the Jews or accuses them of wrong doings. For whatever they do, however criminal it may be they would accuse their detractors as being anti-Semitic.

3.​In this free world we can accuse anyone of anything and it is tolerated because it is part of freedom of speech. But the Jews may not be a criticised in any way without the critic being labelled “anti-Semitic”. And many European countries support this view to the extent of jailing anyone accused of being anti-Semitic.

4.​Clearly the Jews think of themselves as special beings who are privileged to the point of being above condemnation or even criticism.

5.​Their present behaviour confirms this arrogance. They do what they wish even when the world considers their deeds as criminal, inhuman even. Currently they are engaged in killing hundreds of the people in Gaza and razing their cities to the ground. Hospitals, schools and private dwellings have been bombed and rocketed.

6. The world may condemn this inhuman acts but the Jews don’t care. They announce their intention to kill more people and devastate the Gaza strip.

7.​When the Europeans took Palestinian land to create the state of Israel, they clearly stated that the rights of the Arab people within the new state must be respected.

8.​The Jews just ignored this injunction and simply seized all Arab land and properties in Israel including houses and farms. Through violent attacks and massacres e.g. at Deir Yassin, they forced the Palestinian Arabs to flee their land. They then claim the Arabs left freely.

9.​For more than 60 years these refugees have been forced to live in refugee settlements. No compensations have been paid for the expropriation of their property. They are not allowed to return and live in the Jewish State. This is racism at its worse.

10.​Not satisfied with the seized Palestinian land which the UN made into the state of Israel, the Israelis occupied Palestinian land outside Israel. They built fortified settlements exclusively for themselves; another act unprecedented in the history of the nations of the world.

11.​They built roads through Palestinian lands which no Palestinian may use. They built high walls through Palestinians villages, breaking them up so that the Palestinians cannot visit their own friends and relatives living on the other side of the wall. They did not allow the Palestinians to have a Palestinian nation. They can only be a Palestinian Authority. And the Europeans endorse this overbearing arrogance.

12.​They laid siege to the Gaza strip so that food and medicines and building materials cannot be sent to the aid of the Gaza people after the bombings and rocketing by the Israel military forces. Ships trying to supply Gaza with their needs are seized in International waters and forced to sail to Israel where their cargo is confiscated. Frequently the ships are attacked by the Israelis navy outside Israeli waters and aid workers are shot and killed.

13.​Israel has more than ten thousand Palestinians in custody at any time for alleged anti-Israel activities. No charges and no trial have been instituted. The length of the detention is not stated.

14.​Periodically should the Palestinians capture an Israel soldier, Israel would offer to release a few hundred of these detainees in exchange for the Israel soldier. But very quickly new Palestinians are arrested so that they can be used in exchange for captured soldiers.

15.​If in frustration the Palestinian send in suicide bombers or fire rockets to retaliate against Israeli atrocities, they would ensure the Palestinians pay a high price. They would send in their military forces to destroy Palestinian villagers and kill hundreds of innocent Palestinians, men, women, children the old and the sick.

16.​Currently after the alleged killing of three Israeli students by unknown persons, Israel bombarded the Gaza strip with aerial bombs and rockets. Hospitals, schools and private houses are destroyed. More than 500 people have been killed and thousands injured. The hospitals where the injured are taken to are rocketed by Israel without any consideration for the sick who cannot flee.

17.​The message for the world seems to be that Israel and Israelis are sacred and anyone touching them would have to pay a price a hundred times more than that inflicted on Israelis.

18.​All these things the Israeli are doing are against International law, against morality, against human rights. They are criminals in every law of the civilised world.

19.​But the Israeli Jews do this with impunity. They have the whole of America and Europe behind them. They are the chosen people of God and they are above any laws, any moral code, any human values.

20.​When Jews were persecuted by the Nazis in Germany they seek the sympathy and support of the world. But their sufferings have taught them nothing, have not made them understand the pain of suffering. Instead they are now behaving worse than Nazis, not caring at all for the sufferings and deaths they inflict upon others.

21.​The Europeans and the Americans created this monster and they care not for the atrocities committed by it. They will continue to support Israel even if the Israelis commit genocide, kill all the Arabs. This is their way to atone for all their treatment of the Jews in the past.
The Jews should really be venting their spite on the Germans and other Europeans. But they are too smart. Killing Arabs is easier and more fun.

While we celebrate the Gaza ceasefire, let us not be deceived. Let us not be rocked back to sleep. Palestinians continue to live without basic human rights in an apartheid state, where they are systemically humiliated, tortured and killed. This is not only a Muslim cause. This is a human cause. We must continue to boycott, spread awareness, and demand an end to US-sponsored state terrorism. We must continue to make duaa for Gaza and all oppressed people. And we must continue to struggle against our own inner monsters, against the oppressor inside us. Against the parts of ourselves that rebel against Allah. Because the liberation of Gaza is promised.
But first, you and I need to change. -Yasmin Mogahed

How Much More Patience Should Be Granted Towards Astro?

HERE’s a burning question— how much more patience should Malaysians grant to Astro?

Last Sunday evening, Astro customers complained that they were unable to watch some of their favourite channels for more than seven hours. To make matters worse, plenty of customers who tried to call Astro’s customers service line regarding the service disruption had their calls unanswered. This is the latest in a series of mishaps coming from the satellite TV provider.

Complaints directed towards Astro is nothing new. Critics point to the monopoly they hold in our country’s satellite TV industry to exploit the lack of options facing users. Let’s face it, many will agree that their services suck!

Late last year, Astro once again increased the prices of their services. But has this hike in fees been followed by a boost in quality for users? The answer would be an overwhelmingly NO!

The same programs and shows are being repeated to death, users still experience service disruptions whenever it rains, commercials breaks are aplenty (haven’t we already payed a hefty sum for their programs?), we are forced to ‘upgrade our decoders’ every few years, their remote controllers are of poor quality and are easily broken, and also their customer service line sucks (they aren’t 24 hours and hard to reach, especially if you call after 11pm).

Last Sunday’s incident saw service disruption as early as 5pm and lasted until at least 12.30 am on Monday. So how much more patience can Malaysians afford to give them?

Do users have other options? The emergence of a viable competitor in HyppTv gives us hope. It uses fibre optic cables for transmission and so far there are no complaints of disruptions whenever there is rain. The most important thing is, there have been too many chances given towards Astro through the years, and they have misused this. Maybe its time to shift the power back to the consumers.

13 Pas assemblymen will not sign SD: Mustafa Ali

KUALA LUMPUR: The remaining 13 Selangor Pas assemblymen will not sign the statutory declaration in support of PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as Menteri Besar, said Pas secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali.

In a press conference at the party’s headquarters, here, Mustafa said the matter was mentioned in the central committee’s two-hour long meeting, but it was a non-issue

“It is a non-issue. If you ask me (whether they will sign it or not), my answer is no,” he told reporters.

Mustafa also said that there was no decision yet on the disciplinary action towards the two assemblymen, Saari Sungib (Hulu Kelang) and Hasnul Baharuddin (Morib) who had already signed the SD.

“We are still waiting for a more comprehensive report from (our members) in Selangor.

“We will leave it to Sultan of Selangor, to decide who will be the menteri besar,” he added.

On Aug 15, Dr Wan Azizah had claimed majority when 30 Selangor Pakatan assemblymen, including Saari and Hasnul, signed the declaration.
