" NEW YORK – Crude-oil futures were little changed Monday in a market preoccupied with the strength of demand as world economies cool off.
Light, sweet crude for December delivery was recently up 36 cents, or 0.6%, at $57.40 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, after falling to lows near $55 a barrel. January Brent crude on the ICE Futures exchange was up 33 cents at $54.57 a barrel."
-Wallstreets Journal, Nov 17 2008
Therefore I would like to share with you guys on how to save up your money spending for petrol or gas. You can actually save your budget up to 33% on this energy source. There are a few tips which you can apply but I will give it one by one or in other words post by post to make it more interesting. Catch you later!
Just Juice It!
Be sure to make the juice fresh before drinking, as nutrients are lost the longer the juice sits around. Also, blenders do not separate the juice from the plant fibers, and this means that, aside from making the juice chunky, the fibers may lock some of the nutrients and prevent them from being absorbed by the body.
A juicer will separate the juice from the fiber, allowing the body to easily absorb the nutrients, as they have been released from the fibers. Of course, you should not miss out on the health benefits of juice just because you don't have a juicer. A blender will work in a bind. Also, these days, there are several health stores and cafes that can make any fresh juice you want while you wait.
1. Celery Juice to Lower High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is often the root cause of stroke, heart disease, and kidney failure. A time-tested Chinese remedy for this condition is celery juice, which can be made with a blender or a juicer. Two to three 8 oz glasses a day for a month can help prevent high blood pressure or restore it to normal. Additionally, celery is known to prevent gout and other arthritic conditions. Studies have found that this stalk is packed with over a dozen anti-inflammatory agents, including apigenin, a cox2-inhibiting compound similar to some anti-inflammatory drugs. Get the benefits without the side effects!
2. Sunburn Soother
Sunburn can include symptoms of itching, painful blistering, redness, and swelling. When you are sunburned, it is incredibly important to rehydrate the body with fluids. Mix 12 ounces each of pineapple and black cherry juice together to help reduce inflammation and heat. Bromelain - found in pineapples - is a mixture of protein-digesting enzymes, which contain active substances that help reduce inflammation and aid in digestion.
The secret to the health benefits of cherry juice lies in the deep red skins. These skins contain the antioxidant compound called anthocyanins, which help the body relieve inflammation. As added bonuses, these compounds also protect you against heart disease and cancer and have been found to keep diabetics healthy. Drink two to three cups daily to soothe the burn.
3. A Juicy Hearing Aid
An ancient remedy for improving hearing is made from garlic and onions, carrots, and parsley. Put 2 oz of water in a blender with 1 medium-sized chopped onion, 2 chopped carrots, and a generous bunch of parsley. Take out the pulp and keep the juice. Press the raw garlic to get garlic oil, and add to the juice. The garlic will help to increase blood flow to the auditory nerve, and the carrots and parsley are rich in vitamin and C, and niacin, which naturally help improve your hearing function. Drink this juice on a daily basis for a month. If you prefer a more liquid juice, feel free to water this mixture down or add it to other juices.
4. Bright Eyesight Essence
An age-old Chinese folk remedy for clearing the vision is a blended juice made from celery, peppermint, and Chinese parsley. Research has caught up with this wisdom, and we know that luteolin, an antioxidant bioflavonoid found in many herbs and foods, included the three ingredients to this juice has been found to provide the best protection of cell DNA from radiation. Evidence shows that luteolin helps protect the eye from UV radiation damage, as well as from glycation, a process in which sticky sugar molecules bind up protein, which can cause damage to the retina. Luteolin also promotes healthy blood sugar levels and regulates insulin sensitivity. Blend together celery, peppermint, and Chinese parsley in a blender with a little water or a juicer. Drink this fresh juice daily to see well into the future!
5. Heartburn Helper
Juice one medium raw potato in a juicer or a blender, put through a strainer and mix the juice with a cup of warm water. Drink this on an empty stomach in the morning when you first wake up. It will coat and sooth your stomach, as well as reduce acid.These juices are not meant to replace any medications that you may be taking for conditions. Rather, they can supplement treatments you are already receiving and generally keep you body in good working order.I hope you find the ways to drink to your health! I invite you to visit often and share your own personal health and longevity tips with me. May you live long, live strong, and live happy!

A scientist is actually the one that seeks technical answers to understand the natural phenomenon and an engineer seeks and study technical problems with a practical application always in mind.
Can you see the difference between the two?
That is all. Thanks for your time =)
Antara langkah-langkah lain ialah mempercepatkan bayaran rebet yang dijanjikan mulai sabtu ini bagi setiap kereta dan motosikal mengikut kategori yang ditetapkan dan yang telah memperbaharui cukai jalan bermula pada April dan Mei tahun ini. Kuota fleetcard untuk pengusaha pengankutan ditambahkan dan jaringan sosial diperbaikil lagi.
Kesemua langkah tersebut didakwa dapat menjimatkan kos kepada RM2 billion.
Disamping mengelakkan daripada unsr riba, cadangan tersebut dikatakan berupaya mengurangkan beban semua peminjam yang membuat pinjaman dengan pihak Perbadanan Tinggi Pendidikan Tabung Nasional (PTPTN).
Pihak ABIM juga menyokong tindakan Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi untuk merujuk kepada JAKIM dan Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan berkenaan dengan konsep pembayaran balik pinjaman PTPTN tersebut untuk mengelakkan kekeliruan orang ramai.

Rakyat di 8 negara pengeluar minyak dunia dapat menikmati harga petrol dibawah paras RM1.oo seliter manakala 2 lagi negara hanya mengenakan RM1.03 dan RM1.19. Bagaimana dengan rakyat di Malaysia? Harga petrol yang mencecah sehingga RM2.70 seliter merupakan satu nilai yang sangat tidak masuk akal. Dahla naiknya terus sehingga 78 sen seliter (Paling tinggi dalam sejarah). Mahalnya berkali ganda berbanding dengan harga petrol negara pengeluar minyak yang lain pula. Nilai subsidi petrol di Malaysia sama dengan harga petrol seliter di beberapa negara lain. Betulkah kita ini hidup dinegara pengeluar minyak? Janganlah dibandingkan dengan Singapura dan Thailand. Siapalah mereka tu? Mereka adalah negara pengimport minyak. Kenyataan yang membandingkan kita dengan Singapura dan Thailand juga amat menunjukkan kurangnya rasional orang yang berkata-kata itu.
Walaupun rebet tunai diberikan tetapi mampukah rebet itu membantu rakyat? Rakyat yang bodoh sahaja yang suka dengan kenaikan harga minyak dan mekanisma baru yang diperkenalkan. Adakah ini adil? Dimana keadilannya? Dimana perginya manifesto "MEMBELA NASIB RAKYAT" yang diperkenalkan? Dimana perginya duit berbillion yang dikecapi Petronas selama kini? Janganlah asyik membebel untuk berfikir kesenangan generasi akan datang. Sepatutnya rakyat yang hidup sekarang ini diberi pembelaan dan anda kena ingat, tanpa rakyat sekarang ini siapalah rakyat digenerasi akan datang. Tak paham? pikir sendiri.

Heath Ledger was born on April 4, 1979 in Perth, Australia. If I'm not mistaken, he started to be famous when he first featured in 10 Things I Hate About you in 1999. He died on January 22, 2008 at the age of 28, right after he has completed his role in The Dark Knight as Joker (pic). He was found dead from an accidental prescription of drug overdose at his home.
Talking about his life story, he had his first experience of acting at Guildford Grammar School at the age of 10 when he acted as Peter Pan . His parents separated when he was only 10 years old and divorced one year later. Ledger had a few relationships which are with Heather Graham, Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams and had a daughter, Matilda Rose from his relationship with Michelle.
He was also nominated few times as the best actor in a few movies such as Brokeback Mountain, Ned Kelly and Candy.
His death has affected the campaign of Batman: The Dark Knight movie and the director Christopher Nolan intends his movie to celebrate and pay tribute to Ledger's work in him.
Tajuk berita terbaru yang saya terima menyatakan bahawa Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna, Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad (pic), menyatakan bahawa harga bahan api di Malaysia mungkin akan bersandarkan terus pada harga pasaran dunia dan persoalan yang timbul adalah adakah ini menunjukkan rakyat tidak akan lagi menikmati subsidi? Lagi berita terbaru adalah kerajaan akan menimbangkan untuk menggunakan 2 mekanisma subsidi bahan api iaitu "pendapatan tunai" dan "penetapan kuota". Disamping itu pada bulan ogos ini Datuk Shahrir berkata harga kawalan bagi bahan mentah akan dimansuhkan serta merta dengan perlaksanaan dua mekanisma baru ini.
Saya disini ingin menyeru kepada semua bijak pandai diluar sana untuk membangunkan kereta yang tidak bergantung pada petrol ataupun diesel. Jurutera-jurutera sekarang ni makin ramai, ahli-ahli penyelidik pun tak kurang hebatnya. Kita kena terima kenyataan yang sumber bahan api ini tidak akan bertahan lama dan akan habis satu hari nanti. Jadinya teruskan usaha anda untuk membantu menyelesaikan kes ini disamping hanya bermain-main dengan harga pasaran bahan mentah ini dan seterusnya hanya menyusahkan para pengguna.
“Is the man of the house home?”, they asked.
“No”, she replied. “He’s out.”
“Then we cannot come in”, they replied. In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.
“Go tell them I am home and invite them in!” The woman went out and invited the men in.
“We do not go into a House together,” they replied.
“Why is that?” she asked.
One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”
The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!”, he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!”
His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?”
Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”
“Let us heed our daughter’s advice,” said the husband to his wife. “Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”
The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.”
Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?”
The old men replied together:
“If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!“
The morale of the story is fill up your life with love and happyness. Then later wealth and success will come.

For your information, the time we flush actually it will splash out at least 1 million infectious organisms from the toilet bowl and the distance can reach up to 20 feet in radius to the nearby surface. So the chances for those to reach you is very high!
There are few viruses and bacteria that can harm you such as Shigella, E. Coli, Salmonella, Norovirus and hepatitis A. These viruses and bacteria can cause you a slew of nasty symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and vomiting.
Your best defense? Make sure you close the lid before you flush and , please, wash your hands. =)

Manchester United won against Chelsea by penalty kick after they ended up the extra time with 1 - 1 scoreline which were scored by Cristiano Ronaldo for Man Utd and Frank Lampard for Chelsea. Unfortunately, Manchester United at first was dissappointed by the penalty missed took by Cristiano Ronaldo. But finally, thanks to John Terry and Nicholas Anelka which have missed their penalty kick and straight away gave the sweet moment to Manchester United to celebrate their second trophy of the season.
Didier Drogba was red carded in the second half after he slapped Nemanja Vidic during the argument happened between Tevez and some of Chelsea players. A few yellow cards also have been handed out by the referee. The game was controlled by Manchester in the first half but Chelsea's turn to control the game in the second half and they did a few shots on target and sometimes successfuly shaked the Manchester United half.
From my opinion, I was very satisfied with the performance shown by all of the Manchester United players. Good job for Van der sar for saving the Anelka's penalty kick. Well done to everyone!
GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED!

Oleh itu, saya ingin menceritakan sedikit sebanyak apa yang telah saya dengari sewaktu menghadiri Khutbah Jumaat di Masjid MMU, Cyberjaya petang tadi. Tajuk khutbah pada hari ini saya kurang pasti tetapi apa yang cuba dinyatakan adalah masyarakat perlu menerapkan budaya yang baik dan moral yang membina hasil pengajaran para pendidik yang merangkumi semua termasuk guru-guru, pensyarah dan tidak lupa para pendakwah yang sentiasa menyebarkan ajaran Islam kepada masyarakat.
Manusia sememangnya mudah terpedaya dengan hasutan syaitan dan itulah antara kelemahan paling ketara manusia. Oleh itu, betulah apa yang dikatakan oleh Khatib iaitu "meruntuh lebih mudah daripada membina". Walaupun kadang kala manusia sedar akan tanggungjawab sebagai umat islam namun manusia juga mudah leka dengan sifat duniawi di samping dorongan kearah kejahatan oleh syaitan. Oleh itu, sebagai seorang islam, kita seharusnya cuba mengawal diri kita dan amalkan pengajaran berguna yang telah diterapkan oleh sekalian para pendidik selama kita hidup ini. Semoga Allah merahmati kita semua.
I have searched few websites and Jabatan Agama Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) website in order to do the research on E471. Some info that I have found state that E471 is produced actually either from plant fat or animal fat which is pig. There was a claim made by Starbucks Coffee based in Malaysia telling that not all E471 are from animal origin. They use E471 but from soya lecithin which is a plant fat. They even have the "HALAL" certification from JAKIM and International Food and Nutrition Council of America (INFANCA).
Some individual claimed that sometimes E471 maybe is stated as from plant origin by the food supplier but it is actually from pig fat. Therefore they said the best way for muslims or any vegetarian is to avoid from eating food that contains E471.
To me, as long as we confidence (yakin dan tidak was was) with whatever food we want to eat and/or the food has verified HALAL certification, I'll just eat the food. Thats all and in Islam there is a statement that says "Mencari yang halal adalah wajib". Of course you have to seek for the food status whether it is Halal or Haram and after that when you are certain with your findings and it is Halal....just eat it. =)
Ok, as a starter, Board of Engineers Malaysia has been etablished since 1972 and it was constituted under Engineers Act 1967. The purposes of forming it are actually to regulate the professional conduct and the practice of registered engineers in order to safeguard the safety and interest of the public.
About its functions, I will tell you guys later since I dont have much time to elaborate more now. But just wait for the next explanation on what are the functions of BEM later on. ok? Thanks.
This time I'll be talking about registration as a graduate engineer with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM). Some of you might know and some might not. For your information, we are actually required to register with BEM to be a graduate engineer right after we have finished our study and get an accredited engineering degree checked by Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) on behalf of BEM. This is important since to work legally in Malaysia and is one of the requirements needed to be a professional engineer (Peng) or where you can have Ir at the front of your name as what I have posted before.
Under the Registration Engineering Act 1967 (revised 2002), all engineers must register with BEM prior to practice in Malaysia legally. Another thing is experience required for Professional Engineers registration is counted from the approve date of registration with BEM as a graduate engineer. Not on the date of your graduation day and not on the date of registration with Institute of Engineers Malaysia (IEM)!
So, those who are not register yet. Go apply it!
Petang tadi satu keputusan sudah pun dibuat pada mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Kabinet itu dan keputusannya adalah harga beras Super Special Tempatan 5 % dan Beras Super Special Tempatan 10 % yang sebelum ini tidak dikawal harganya akan diletakkan harga siling masing-masing pada RM2.80 sekilo dan RM2.70 sekilo.
Harga padi dinaikkan kepada RM750 setan (metrik) berkuat kuasa serta merta untuk membantu ekonomi para petani. Adakah ini keputusan yang bagus? Kita lihat hasilnya nanti.
The same match and emotion will also occur next week when they both, again, meet at the final stage of UEFA Champions League in Moscow. Can both of the team retain both trophies or each one of them wins only one trophy? We will see.
If let say you want to become a Chartered Engineer and you dont know what to do next, you are actually have to register with ICE and follow the procedures for becoming a Chartered Engineer. This status of Chartered Engineer by ICE is surely recognised all around the world.
If you want to register or want to know more about ICE, you can log on to http://www.ice.org.uk/. As a student, you are also recommended to register with ICE and you dont have to pay for the registration because its free. But for those who want to register as an engineer or professional engineer, you have to pay for the fees charged. You will gain a lot of benefit by joining this organisation including access to hundreds of free articles, relevant and pratical contents and etc.
The group also thought that around 4000 churches are estimated to be closed by 2020 if the numbers of catholic community which go to the church continously decreasing so sudden based from the current trend.
But England Church party said that the report wasnt true and stated that it was wrong and can mislead people.
Currently, the price of crude oil has reached its highest value which is US$124(RM398.4) a barrel. He says that the problem is because of the difficulty to dig and produce crude oil in Nigeria and also because of the weak US dollars. The oil price is actually not expensive. Its just because of the side effect made by weak US Dollars. Iran is the second crude oil producer in the world for now.
- Einstein (pic) was 4 years old before he could speak.
- When Thomas Edison was a youngster, his teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything. He was counseled to go into a field where he might succeed by virtue of his pleasant personality. Thomas Edison adalah pencipta lampu mentol.
- F.W. Woolworth got a job in a dry goods store when he was 21, but his boss would not permit him to wait on customers because he “didn’t have enough sense to close a sale.” Kini, Woolworth adalah pasaraya ternama di UK
- Issac Newton did poorly in grade school and was considered "unpromising".
- A newspaper editor fired Walt Disney because he “lacked imagination and had no original ideas.
I believe that every person that I have stated above you know. Am I right? They're all famous with their success stories but we have to remember that they also have their own black history and they still can survive until they became a well known person because of their contribution!What was their secret? Never give up was surely one of their keys to success!

Instead of pushing yourself starving everyday and can weaken your body imunity towards diseases in order for you to reduce you body fat, try to eat at least an apple everyday or 3 apples.
In United States, there was a recommendation to take 3 apples everyday and its getting popular until now. In Wenatchee city, Washington AS, A woman was reported to have body fat reduced about 8.6 kg after 12 weeks of practicing it. A man was reported to reduce body fat around 16 kg after the same period of time as the woman. But of course you still have to control your diet which is to eat more non fat foods and etc. Please bear in mind that you have to do excercises at least 3 times a week in order to burn more fat efficiently.
I want to try it...kikiki. So lets try and see the outcome! =)
But now, I have heard a news telling me that there will be another superhero coming in which is Captain America (pic). From the source that I have received, it has stated that Captain America movie will coming out next year which is in 2009. The movie is still in production and I dont know yet about who is directing it, who are the actors and actress. So just wait and see...=)
This book will teach you how to set up your goals, how to continously maintain your high motivation and etc. You might want to know who is the author of this book. As you can see at the picture beside this article, the author is Dr. Irfan Khairi (pic). He was known as a young millionaire because he has reached RM1,000,000.00 when he was only 25 years old by doing internet business with capital as low as RM500 a few years back. I will tell you more about him later because what I want to share with you now is about his book.
This book for me is a very good book in order for you to learn how to motivate yourself and stuff. This book explains to you on how to let you to reach your goals like for instance want to have RM1 Million or get good CGPA! Its explanation is very simple and easy to understand. The book also contains a lot of colouful pictures and very interesting cartoons. You have to try it. Even though I dont finish it yet, but I will rate it 5 stars out of 5. Peace! =).
Within this 24 years, the father which name is Josef Fritzl (pic), 73 , has fathered 7 kids which Elisabeth gave birth to but only 6 of them survive until today. His seventh child was dead long ago and its believed that the body of the child has been thrown into an incinerator by Josef Fritzl himself to dispose the body.
3 of his children which aged 19,18 and 5, have never saw sunlight since they were born until they were freed a few days ago. His other 3 kids lived with their grandparents and they were registered with authorities saying that they were found outside of his house in 1993,1994 and 1997.
If Josef is found guilty, he will be imprisoned for 15 years and for me thats not enough and he deserves to spend more years in jail. This is because he has kept her daughter for 24 years and raped her, but he will only be imprisoned for 15 years? Thats not fair enough if compared with his cruelty.
