There are many Malaysians of Filipino descent who have collectively contributed much to this country, especially in Sabah. MY eldest son looked troubled when I picked him up from school in Kota Kinabalu. This was about seven years ago when he had just started his secondary education. He kept quiet when I asked him what was bothering him. About five minutes later, he blurted ...

Antwone Fisher, which tells the story of a man who survived abuse, neglect, racism, and other horrors, is a generically uplifting movie, filled with the kind of bluntly life-affirming feel-goodness you expect to see on a Sunday-night TV movie. This doesnt make it bad in any particular way, merely unsurprising. Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington, in his directorial debut, has crafted a n ... ...
I am a senior citizen and depend soley on public transport to move around. The public bus service in Seremban is most deplorable. I have to wait at least 45 minutes to an hour just to board a bus that passes by Jalan Rasah. I live off the main road, so what more if a person were to stay at some remote housing area. This is not something new as the situation has been going on for many years. ...
We are quick to blame our neighbour, Indonesia, every time the haze envelops our neighbourhood. However, we are equally to blame for the haze problem. There is poor enforcement of the law resulting in open burning becoming a widespread problem in the country. It no longer surprises me to see homes, business operators and plantations burning rubbish in open areas as it has become a norm. I have ...
Ex-CIA whistleblower Edward Snowden on Monday participated in a live blog on the UK-based Guardian newspaper's website, where he affirmed that he is not a spy for China, and criticized the US government which he said "immediately and predictably destroyed any possibility of a fair trial at home." He also mentioned an instance where the US and the UK monitored communications by ...
I do find the transportation in Taipei convenient and comfortable, the food deliciously exotic in first encounters, but it is the people that mesmerize me, as was the case of many foreigners that left their footprints on the island. I like but don't like the people. Contradictory person? Not so much. The Taiwanese are extremely friendly, polite and more than ready to help complete ...

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

Normal life was hit in some districts of the region after the swollen Mahakali river (known as Sharda in India) inundated homes, as well as sweeping away habitations and government offices and a hospital.
The worst hit was Khalanga, the headquarter of Darchula district, bordering India, where the swollen Mahakali swept away 53 houses including five government offices on Monday afternoon, said officials.
After the river created havoc in Darchula and other adjoining districts, the Nepali side had requested Indian authorities to release water from the barrage, said Darchula's District Natural Disaster Chief Ram Hari Sharma.
