Have you ever heard life explained better than this?
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said: "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
"One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
"The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it heart has minute and then asked his grandfather": Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied: "The one you feed."

Its president Ragunath Kesavan said any apology was a separate issue from the impending court action.
“The lawyers were detained overnight and as far as we are concerned, it’s their right to take action.
“It’s travesty of law when a lawyer who is there to meet a client in the police station is arrested for carrying out his duty.
“The court action is still ongoing and we will definitely file it on behalf of the lawyers,” he told reporters after handing over a memorandum to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz at the Parliament lobby here yesterday.
Ragunath said the council had also lodged a complaint with the Malaysian Human Rights (Suhakam) Commission as it concerned a breach of human rights.
“There are provisions under the Suhakam Act which says they cannot proceed with the inquiry if there is an ongoing court action. But we want the probe to carry on.
“So, we will look at how we can carry on with both action at the same time,” he said.
Ragunath said he also hoped that action would be taken against the police officers involved in the arrest of the legal aid lawyers.
“Our memorandum also states that we want a protocol to be established on access to lawyers and for the police to respect the rule of law,” he said.
Nazri promised that he would act immediately on areas that fell under his purview.
“For matters that are linked to the police, I will hand the memorandum over to Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein,” he said.
Nazri said as the minister in charge of judiciary affairs, he wanted to ensure that the rule of law was upheld.
Sels: good job Ragunath.

This is a damn good joke. Why football is played for 45 minutes per half-time?
Those who thought of this must have lots of time.
Why people play football for 45 minutes, not 30 minutes or 1 hour? Even the sports scientist and some
of the senior players could not give the right answer.
In that confusing situation one person came up with a reasonable answer.
He said "The reason people play this game for 45 minutes is...
There are 2 teams and there are 11 players in each team. Each player brings his own
"2 balls" So in total there are 44 balls. There is one ball on the ground itself.
Thus the grand total is 45". Question Answered !!
Sometimes there is extra time of 2 mins which is the referee's balls!

You should be able to see something to capture without looking through the viewfinder. Once you have an image in mind then view it trough the viewfinder to pull it all together. I suggest when you have an image in sight you get the right exposure and then bracket both up and down. If you are capturing an image that has depth which is having all in focus from the foreground to the background you will have to use a high f/stop number which means a slow shutter speed will follow, then you will need a tripod to keep it rock steady.
I would say to start off with shooting images without people or moving objects, once you feel that you have gained learning then go to capture people and moving objects.

PETALING JAYA: The Bar Council is alarmed that the police continue to harass and intimidate lawyers by calling them in for questioning on matters relating to the execution of their professional duties.
President Ragunath Kesavan said recently, lawyer Chan Kok Keong was served a Section 111 notice that was silent on the subject he would be questioned bout. At the interview, he was asked regarding an affi davit that had been affi rmed by his client, former Perak assembly speaker V. Sivakumar, in a suit where Chan is representing the said client.
Lawyers representing Chan in this matter were themselves informed that they would be required to give statements if they wished to accompany Chan at the interview.
“Such questioning makes a complete mockery of the fundamental principle of solicitor-client confi dentiality by which lawyers are bound,” he said.
“It shows a grave lack of respect for the criminal justice system, as the solicitor-client privilege lies at the core of this system. This harassment must stop if we are indeed committed to the principle of access to justice and to the Rule of Law,” said Ragunath, adding that it is internationally recognised that lawyers perform a vital function when they act for their clients in the pursuit of justice, and that they must be permitted to carry out these functions freely.
He urged police to immediately stop such unwarranted action.
seals: Hmmm this means the clients cannot tell everything to their lawyers as the Prosecution can use the police to get all the information and use it against you.
Then what is the purpose of court for? Or is it a crime to be defense lawyers?

Penanti: Dr Mansor wins with 6,052 votes out of 7,100
BUKIT MERTAJAM: PKR's Dr Mansor Othman has won 6,052 of the 7,100 votes cast in the Penanti by-election.
He is trailed by Independents Nai Khan Ari (494), Aminah Abdullah (392) and Kamarul Ramizu Idris (56).
Dr Mansor is likely to be sworn in as the next Deputy Chief Minister 1 on Wednesday.
Polling ended at Penanti on Sunday with a low turnout of 46.1% or 7,100 voters despite fair weather.
Penanti has 15,384 registered voters.
Results are expected to be announced by 8.30pm.
Election Chairman Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof said he was disappointed by the low turnout.
“We do not why but we will study the reasons for it,” he said, adding that he had expected a 70% turnout.
The usual buzz and excitement that surrounds by-elections was missing this time as Barisan Nasional had declined to contest.
The Election Commission had strictly enforced the no "pondok panas" rule within 50m of the polling stations, which meant there was no last-minute wooing of voters.
At about 3pm Sunday, 42.2% or 6,492 voters had cast their votes at the nine polling stations.
Although the weather was fine there was only a trickle of voters and traffic flow was smooth.
However, both FRU and police personnel remained on standby for any eventuality. No such eventuality has arisen.
Voters in Penanti comprise 72.68% Malays, 24.44% Chinese, 2.39% Indians and 0.71% of other races.
It was a four-cornered fight with PKR's Mansor Othman taking on three Independents - former Penang PKR Wanita chief, manufacturing manager Nai Khan Ari, 41, and businessman Kamarul Ramizu Idris, 42.
Among the earliest to cast his vote was Nai-Khan Ari at the Kg Tun Sardon community hall at 8.40am.
Earlier, Dr Mansor had visited the Berapit polling station with DAP's Lim Kit Siang and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
Aminah has recently added in a twist to the otherwise peaceful campaign period by claiming that her former party has offered her RM80,000 and the Penang Municipal Council president's post if she withdrew from the contest.
She also alleged that PKR leaders had offered her the Deputy Chief Minister's post if she won.
She has since lodged a report with the Election Commission.
The Penanti seat fell vacant after Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin quit as assemblyman on April 16 after stepping down as Penang Deputy Chief Minister I on April 8.
In the last general election, PKR's Fairus polled 7,346 votes against the 5,127 votes obtained by his Barisan opponent Datuk Abdul Jalil Majid. There were 184 spoilt votes.
seals: 85.23% winning ... this shows who the people wants.....
