Price Hike Of Petrol Tonight

Very recently, Malaysia Instict has been covertly notified by several petroleum players in this country about the price hike of petrol that would take place as soon as 12.01am of September 1, means Monday midnight.

The RON95 petrol will be sold at RM1.80 per litre effective Sept 1, which is 5 sen more than its current selling price while  RON97 petrol will be at RM2 per litre which is 20 sen higher  than its current  price RM1.80 per litre.

An official announcement of this new petrol price will be made public by Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob this evening in a press conference at the ministry’s office.

As a result, RON97 will be the alternative petrol and a premium product. Instead, the RON95 petrol will be the choice petrol for consumers and rest assured, the product is of high quality and is good enough to be filled in even luxury and high-powered cars

RON95 has made a debut on last  May to replace the RON92. According to petroleoum traders, the decision to phase out RON92 would not affect consumers as statistics show that only 5% to 10% of vehicle owners use the petrol, adding that by paying only five sen more for a litre, consumers would get to enjoy better quality petrol.

Thus, the new price will definitely not borne with difficulties to public compared to previous increment made last year which abruptly topped up huge amount. But this time around, things are going to be different as it would probably not effecting the cost of consumer product on market.

Consolidating the side effects learnt from previous lesson of pass administration, now government are implementing various programmes to help the public cushion the effect of an increase in the cost of living and price of  essential goods.

Petrol price hike is something unescapeable due to global demand and trade price for  petroleum. Current price for crude petroleum oil is floating around USD70 to USD75 per barrel  highly dependent on global macroeconomic conditions.

Luckily, government has replace RON97 with RON95 which is cheaper, but hold greater performance for engines. RON means Research Octane Number and it refers to the ability of gasoline to auto burn inside the engine.

Higher octane number oil is basically designed for higher performance cars such as sport cars and racing cars. This is to avoid premature burning of oil inside the engine. Simply say, higher number of RON is harder to burn the petrol. Meaning that RON97 is harder to burn compared to RON95.

RON95 could be used for all types of cars including imported luxury cars. This is good opportunity for citizen to switch to cheaper RON95 if previously they used RON97. This is because RON95 offers about the same quality and performance as RON97.

Once RON95 is available , surely there will be pretty much consumers trying the new RON95 petrol to see which one feels the best with their car’s engine. Petronas has initially tested RON95, branded Primax  95 since May this year.

Within three months of the trial usage at two Petronas Station in Klang Valley, consumers positively  verified the super power of Primax 95 that produces less carbon yet ensuring the cleanliness of the engine system.

In conclusion, goverment’s decision to increase 5 sen for RON95 and 20 sen for RON97 starting tonight, will be blissfully welcomed by the nation as it benefits alot for the motorist. After all, figures of the increment are extremely minimum and acceptable to majority Malaysians.

Dead? Michael Jackson? Farrah Fawcett?

Michael Jackson

Music Memorials | 6:38 p.m. Expect a number of Jackson music marathons in the days to come. According to our colleague Stuart Elliott: WCBS-FM, the oldies station in New York, is broadcasting some of Mr. Jackson’s greatest hits. The station said it would have special programming later in the day.

Mr. Jackson was one of the icons of MTV’s early days in the 1980’s. Our colleague Steve Reddicliffe says that the music channel is now playing the music videos for “Beat It” and “Thriller,” accompanied by a “breaking news” graphic on the screen about the singer’s death.

Update | 6:37 p.m. The Associated Press is reporting that Mr. Jackson is dead.

Reaction | 6:37 p.m. Television news images showed large crowds gathering outside the UCLA Medical Center. “People are already showing up in costume, believe it or not,” said a Fox News correspondent, Trace Gallagher, comparing it to the circus he witnessed during a trial involving Mr. Jackson.

More Reports | 6:29 p.m. “A lot will be said about Michael Jackson as we learn more about this story,” Brian Williams said on the “NBC Nightly News.”

“He was incredibly talented, a child star who was an adult with deep troubles and physical and mental health issues.”

The reports of Mr. Jackson’s death ricocheted around the world with remarkable speed. The news led Friday morning newscasts in Japan.

CBS and ABC are also reporting the news, standing on their own reporting now.

L.A. Times Reports Jackson Is Dead | 6:24 p.m. The newspaper cited “city and law enforcement sources.” The networks and CNN are also broadcasting the news, citing the Times story.

Reports: Jackson in a Coma | 6:15 p.m. Several news organizations including the Los Angeles Times reported that Mr. Jackson “is in a coma.” The newspaper attributed the news to one law enforcement source. CNN is also citing “multiple sources” as saying that Mr. Jackson is in a coma.

Update | 6:11 p.m. LOS ANGELES – An unconscious Michael Jackson was rushed to UCLA Medical Center on Thursday afternoon by paramedics who performed C.P.R., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Early reports indicated cardiac arrest, but a hospital spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment. Mr. Jackson, 50, has been renting a mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood, a short distance from the hospital, and rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows in London.

Joe Jackson told to E! News, an entertainment Web site and cable channel, that the singer’s family was scrambling to determine his condition. “I am in Las Vegas, but yes, people in Los Angeles called me and are with Michael and tell me he was taken to the hospital,” Mr. Jackson told E! News. “His mother is on her way to the hospital now to check in on him.”

Mr. Jackson is scheduled to perform in a series of concerts in at the O2 arena London, beginning next month and continuing into 2010. The shows have been widely seen in the music industry as an important possible comeback for him, with the potential to earn him up to $50 million, according to some reports. But there has also been worry and speculation that Mr. Jackson, who is 50, was not physically ready for such an arduous run of concerts, and Mr. Jackson’s postponement of the first of those shows from July 8 to July 12 fueled new rounds of gossip about his health.

Even though Mr. Jackson has sold millions of albums around the world — “Thriller,” from 1982, has been certified 28 times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America — his eccentric lifestyle took a severe financial toll. In 1987 Mr. Jackson paid about $17 million for a 2,600-acre ranch in Los Olivos, Calif., 125 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Calling it Neverland, he outfitted the property with amusement-park rides, a zoo and a 50-seat theater, at a cost of $35 million, according to reports, and the ranch became his sanctum.

But Neverland, and Mr. Jackson’s lifestyle, were expensive to maintain. A forensic accountant who testified at Mr. Jackson’s molestation trial in 2005 said that Mr. Jackson’s annual budget in 1999 included $7.5 million for personal expenses and $5 million to maintain Neverland. By at least the late 1990s, he began to take out huge loans to support himself and pay debts. In 1998 he took out a loan for $140 million from Bank of America, which two years later was upped to $200 million. Further loans of hundreds of millions followed.

The collateral for the loans was Mr. Jackson’s 50 percent share in Sony/ATV Music Publishing, a portfolio of thousands of songs, including more than 100 by the Beatles that are considered some of the most valuable properties in music. In 1985 Mr. Jackson paid $47.5 million for ATV, which included the Beatles songs — a move that estranged him from Paul McCartney — and 10 years later Mr. Jackson sold 50 percent of his interest to Sony for $90 million, creating a joint venture, Sony/ATV. Estimates of the value of the catalog exceed $1 billion.

A member of the pop group The Jackson 5 as a child, Mr. Jackson was a pint-size musical dynamo. He under the aegis of Joe Jackson, spent years in talent shows and performing in seedy Midwestern clubs his dictatorial and ambitious father. Joe Jackson and Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown Records, were the singer’s twin mentors during his early career.

Mr. Jackson eventually broke with his father and the Jackson 5, a move toward creative and financial independence marked by his collaborations with Quincy Jones on a trio of albums. The most memorable of those is 1982’s “Thriller,” which eventually racked up sales of 51 million copies globally, according to the Guinness World Records, making it the best-selling album in history.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department told CNN that rescuers were called to Mr. Jackson’s home at 12:21 p.m. Pacific. “When paramedics went on the scene, they treated the patient, then they immediately transported the patient to UCLA,” the spokesman told CNN. Mr. Jackson’s home is located only a few minutes from the hospital center.

Cable news channels almost immediately started showing paparazzi shots from TMZ, X17Online.com and Hollywood.TV of Mr. Jackson’s entourage arriving at the hospital. By mid-afternoon, television news helicopters were hovering above the medical center.

Entertainment news Web sites including EOnline.com and PerezHilton.com appeared to be loading more slowly than usual, or not loading at all, an indication of the intense interest in Mr. Jackson’s hospitalization.

Farrah Fawcett

Farrah Fawcett, an actress, television star and pop-culture phenomenon whose good looks and signature leonine hairstyle influenced a generation of women and, beginning with a celebrated pinup poster, bewitched a generation of men, died on Thursday in Santa Monica, California, according to Paul Bloch, her spokesman. She was 62 and had been battling cancer since late 2006.

To an extraordinary degree, that fight was played out in public, generating enormous interest worldwide. Her face, often showing the ravages of her illness, became a tabloid fixture, and updates on her health became staples of television entertainment news.

In May, her cancer battle was chronicled in an NBC primetime documentary, “Farrah’s Story,” some of it shot on home video. An estimated 9 million people viewed it. Ms. Fawcett had initiated the project with a friend and producer, Alana Stewart, after she first learned of her cancer.

Prototype Nokia phone recharges without wires

Pardon the cliche, but it’s one of the holiest of Holy Grails of technology: Wireless power. And while early lab experiments have been able to “beam” electricity a few feet to power a light bulb, the day when our laptops and cell phones can charge without having to plug them in to a wall socket still seems decades in the future.

Nokia, however, has taken another baby step in that direction with the invention of a cell phone that recharges itself using a unique system: It harvests ambient radio waves from the air, and turns that energy into usable power. Enough, at least, to keep a cell phone from running out of juice.

While “traditional” (if there is such a thing) wireless power systems are specifically designed with a transmitter and receiver in mind, Nokia’s system isn’t finicky about where it gets its wireless waves. TV, radio, other mobile phone systems — all of this stuff just bounces around the air and most of it is wasted, absorbed into the environment or scattered into the ether. Nokia picks up all the bits and pieces of these waves and uses the collected electromagnetic energy to create electrical current, then uses that to recharge the phone’s battery. A huge range of frequencies can be utilized by the system (there’s no other way, really, as the energy in any given wave is infinitesimal). It’s the same idea that Tesla was exploring 100 years ago, just on a tiny scale.

Mind you, harvesting ambient electromagnetic energy is never going to offer enough electricity to power your whole house or office, but it just might be enough to keep a cell phone alive and kicking. Currently Nokia is able to harvest all of 5 milliwatts from the air; the goal is to increase that to 20 milliwatts in the short term and 50 milliwatts down the line. That wouldn’t be enough to keep the phone alive during an active call, but would be enough to slowly recharge the cell phone battery while it’s in standby mode, theoretically offering infinite power — provided you’re not stuck deep underground where radio waves can’t penetrate.

Nokia says it hopes to commercialize the technology in three to five years.

Honorary Doctorate of Humanity – Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad

Tun Dr. Mahathir - credit to Ramy S. Maki.

CYBERJAYA (June 8, 2009) : Former prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate of Humanity by Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) today as tribute to his vision and achievements in transforming Malaysia during his 22 years of premiership.

“To talk about Tun Dr Mahathir is easy. There is so much that he has done. His footprints are literally everywhere in this country. You will also find his footprints in other countries,” said the university’s founder-president Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Lim Kok Wing at the conferment ceremony.

“But to pay tribute to such an extraordinary person calls for more than an extraordinary effort.”

In crediting Mahathir for being instrumental in the liberalisation of private education, Lim said it was the catalyst that enabled Malaysia to become a regional hub of education, leading to the university becoming a globalised player in tertiary education.

Mahathir was one of three icons conferred with the doctorate by the university. Other recipients were former South African president Nelson Mandela in June 2008 and former Botswana president Dr Festus G. Mogae in February 2008.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak was conferred the Honorary Doctorate of Social Transformation in April 2008.
