Stress Management Tips

All stress isn’t bad. Stress can initiate change, help us focus on the task at hand, and in some cases even save our lives. Yet, when stress builds up, it can result in the opposites— and cause us to spin our wheels, keep us from concentrating, and cause bodily injury and even loss of life.

The first tip in managing stress is to recognize your stressors. The next step is to put each of them in their place. The following stress management tips, based on some old and some new adages, can help you do just that!

Woman who killed herself may be a murder victim

PETALING JAYA: An apparent suicide of a woman took a twist when the post-mortem revealed that she may have been murdered.

The 31-year-old television station employee, Sharizat Jafar, was found by her husband hanging from the bedroom fan at their apartment in Damansara Damai at about 9pm on Saturday.

Her body was sent to the Sungai Buloh Hospital.

Crucial and instant help is just three numbers away

PETALING JAYA: Some people may never need to call 999 in their whole lives but in times of need, these are the three numbers that they can rely on for crucial assistance or to save lives.

The situation was true for an IT manager, who wished to be known only as Goh.

He said a 999 call saved the life of his 66-year-old mother in March.

“My mother is a diabetic and on that day, her blood sugar level dropped tremendously for unknown reasons. She was semi-conscious and did not know what was happening,” said the 33-year-old.

Although the hospital was near to his house in SS2 here, Goh could not move her out by himself and decided to call 999 for help.

Emergency call-takers and dispatchers to be trained professionally

PETALING JAYA: Call-takers and dispatchers of the 999 emergency line will be trained professionally and certified accordingly to follow the highest standards of handling crisis calls.

Malaysia Emergency Response Services (MERS) 999 is set to emulate the benchmarks of 911, the national emergency number in the United States.

A government-backed body will be set up to ensure that operators at MERS 999 answer emergency calls within 20 seconds, 10 seconds faster than the current response time.

“This shows the importance of Rakan Cop’s contribution in combating crime.

“In line with the Government Transformation Programme 2.0 Laboratory (GTP 2.0 Lab), efforts will be taken to improve and strengthen Rakan Cop,” he said during a walkabout in Taman Jasmin, Senawang here yesterday.

AIDS cure may have two main pathways

WASHINGTON: Investigators are looking into two main paths toward a cure for AIDS, based on the stunning stories of a small group of people around the world who have been able to overcome the disease.

Despite progress in treating millions of people globally with  antiretroviral drugs, experts say a cure is more crucial than ever because the  rate of HIV infections is outpacing the world’s ability to medicate people.

“For every person who starts antiretroviral therapy, two new individuals  are infected with HIV,” Javier Martinez-Picado of the IrsiCaixa AIDS Research  Institute in Spain told the International AIDS Conference in Washington on  Tuesday.

Some 34 million people around the world are living with HIV, which has  caused around 30 million AIDS-related deaths since the disease first emerged in  the 1980s.

Call to boycott irresponsible traders

BUKIT MERTAJAM: Consumers were urged to use their rights to chose wisely by boycotting irresponsible traders who hiked up price following the month of Ramadan on Saturday.

State Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry director Salleh Ma'amor said the government could not take any action against unscrupulous traders now as the ceiling price for controlled items law is only enforced about a week before the Hari Raya festive.

As such, Salleh said the consumers should use their power to chose between traders who are selling at reasonable price and  staying away from irresponsible traders.

"This mechanism is more effective than enforcing the law as the traders would eventually being forced to bring down the price rather than losing everything," he said after leading his men to inspect price label display at a bazar Ramadan in Seberang Jaya.

Shoplifters use foil to foil mall detectors

KUALA LUMPUR: Retail outlets beware. A roll of aluminium foil costing just RM7 can “disable” security scanners, allowing shoplifters to go off undetected.

They noticed two women and a man, who were sitting at a cafe in the mall, exchanging items among themselves, Siow said.

Security at malls still not up to mark

PETALING JAYA: Shopping malls – the scene of several crimes in recent days – can do more to beef up security measures, an expert said.

Security Services Association president Datuk Shaheen Mirza Habib said their managements still had “that apathetic attitude” towards security despite the number of untoward incidents.

“I see this for myself when visiting some shopping malls,” he said.

“The security guards do not patrol all floors of the car park. I think some malls hire the bare minimum number of guards just for show – not for real crime prevention measures,” added the director of one of the biggest security firms in the country.

Himpunan Oren Buktikan Felda Benar

Himpunan Oren yang diadakan pada 14 Julai lalu bolehlah dianggap sebagai titik noktah perjuangan Persatuan Anak-anak Peneroka (ANAK).   Dengan kehadiran hanya 10% dari jumlah sasaran 20,000 menunjukkan yang sokongan terhadap ANAK benar-benar di tahap kronik. 

Penganut-penganut PAS sendiri menyambut dingin Himpunan tersebut walaupun telah menerima arahan rasmi dari PAS Pusat untuk turun meramaikannya.   Ini bermakna dalam 2,000 orang yang hadir, mungkin separuhnya adalah orang-orang PAS tegar yang sekadar ingin meramaikan majlis dan bukannya anak-anak peneroka. 

Justeru, terbuktilah bahawa perjuangan ANAK adalah perjuangan syok sendiri Mazlan Aliman dan tidak langsung mewakili suara dan pendapat peneroka secara keseluruhan.

Himpunan Oren: Usaha Pembangkang Untuk Mendapat Publisiti Murah

Pada Perhimpunan BERSIH 3.0 yang lepas, pihak pembangkang hanya berjaya mendapatkan sekitar 25,000 peserta iaitu jauh tersasar dari jumlah sasaran seramai 500,000 orang.   Mungkin kerana tidak puas hati, dan ingin ‘test power’ memandangkan Pilihanraya semakin hampir maka satu lagi percubaan untuk menggerakkan seramai mungkin penyokong mereka melalui demonstrasi, diadakan pada siang tadi.  Kali ini, dengan memakai nama Himpunan Oren pula yang bertujuan kononnya untuk ‘menyelamatkan Felda’.  

Menurut mereka, para peserta adalah terdiri dari anak-anak Felda tetapi kita mendapat tahu bahawa ada pekeliling yang dikeluarkan oleh PAS untuk mengerahkan ahli-ahli mereka turun beramai-ramai menyertainya.   Perlu diingatkan bahawa tiada pula pekeliling yang sama dikeluarkan oleh DAP, bukan hanya kerana DAP tidak cukup bodoh untuk menyertai balaci mereka di dalam PAS untuk berbuat sesuatu yang sia-sia, tetapi juga kerana DAP tidak berminat dengan isu ini memandangkan Felda adalah isu orang Melayu.

Iran issues new oil blockade warning

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran could prevent even "a single drop of oil" passing through the Strait of Hormuz if its security is threatened, a naval chief said on Saturday, as tensions simmer over Tehran's nuclear programme.

Tehran will increase its military presence in international waters, said Ali Fadavi, naval commander in Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

"If they (the U.S.) do not obey international laws and the IRGC's warnings, it will have very bad consequences for them," Fadavi said, according to Iran's Fars News Agency.

"The IRGC's naval forces have had the ability since the (Iran-Iraq) war to completely control the Strait of Hormuz and not allow even a single drop of oil to pass through."

85% Peneroka Sokong BN

Tindakan pembangkang yang gemar menyerang BN dengan fitnah bolehlah diumpamakan seperti menembak dengan peluru kapur.  Ini kerana, ia mungkin sakit tetapi tidak membawa kematian.  Lama kelamaan, peluru pun habis dan sakit pun tidak dirasai lagi. 

Begitulah yang terjadi di Felda.  Setelah berhempas pulas memburukkan BN dengan berbagai fitnah kini apa yang berlaku ialah pembangkang pun sudah letih, peneroka pun sudah muak dan BN kekal teguh bergaya dari segi sokongan di Felda-Felda.

Lalu, dengan beberapa peluru mengenai kaki sendiri, pembangkang kini melompat-lompat tanpa tujuan.

Mana tidaknya kerana mengikut analisis, sokongan peneroka Felda terhadap BN selepas penyenaraian semakin meningkat iaitu sehingga 85% walaupun beberapa pihak meramalkan sebaliknya.
