Formula 1 Will be Downgraded to 1.6 litre?

0 comments
 
LONDON (Reuters) – Formula One’s governing body has formally approved plans to introduce a new V6 1.6 litre turbo engine from the start of the 2014 season.

The International Automobile Federation (FIA) said in a statement on Wednesday that its World Motor Sport Council had passed the new regulations in a fax vote.

The Formula One commission that groups the sport’s main stakeholders had already unanimously agreed the switch from V8 to V6 units with energy recovery systems.

The original plans had been for a 1.6 litre four cylinder hybrid turbo engine to be introduced in 2013 but that met resistance from some manufacturers.
The FIA statement did not say what the rev limit on the new engine would be.
Team technical heads met at last weekend’s European Grand Prix in Valencia and suggested the new engines be allowed to rev higher than previously envisaged — from around 12,000 rpm to 15,000.
Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault and Cosworth are the sport’s current engine makers, with each supplying three teams.

The sport returned to naturally aspirated engines in 1989, with a new 3.5 litre formula. Formula One’s last turbo era ended in 1988, a season dominated by the 1.5 litre V6 Honda-powered McLaren’s of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna.

Lynas Plant Safe in Malaysia?

Lynas plant safe by world standards, says review panel


KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 — Australian rare earths miner Lynas Corp won today international approval for its RM700 million plant being built in Malaysia’s east coast after a UN review panel said it posed no radioactive risks to the thousands who live and work there.

But International Atomic Energy Agency-appointed (IAEA) panel recommended 11 improvements for Putrajaya to implement before awarding Lynas further licences, including the one the miner needs to start pre-operations.

The federal government has also pledged it will adopt all the suggestions.

The Sydney-based company had previously hoped to fire up its plant by September; it will be announcing its next step later today.

It had earlier requested a halt to trading on its shares.

The ministers’ statement was read

Putrajaya, under pressure to show that the plant does not pose any radioactive risk, had called for experts from the IAEA to form an independent panel to review the health, environmental and safety aspects of Lynas’ rare earths plant in Pahang.

“The IAEA report concluded that it did not find any instance of ‘any non-compliance with international radiation safety standards’ in the Lynas project,” said Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed and Datuk Maximus Ongkili in a joint statement today.

Mustapa heads the International Trade and Industry Ministry (MITI) while Ongkili is the Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation (Mosti). Both were absent from today’s news conference but their prepared statement was read aloud by MITI secretary-general Datuk Dr Rebecca Sta Maria.

But the government and the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) declined to comment on a New York Times report today claiming Lynas’ Gebeng plant is being plagued by design problems and hazardous construction issues.

When asked, Sta Maria said she had read the article and would leave it for Lynas to comment.

The nine-man expert panel found Lynas to have complied with international health and safety standards, after a month-long review.

The full 55-page report deals with radiation protection, waste management, decommissioning an environmental can be read online at the IAEA website which is also linked to the Trade Ministry and Science and Technology Ministry websites.

Among the panel’s recommendations are for the federal government and its agency, AELB, to require Lynas, before the start of operations, to submit a plan detailing its waste management in the long run.

The review panel highlighted the need for the miner to address the management of the water leach purification (WLP) solids after it shutters the Gebeng plant, together with a safety case supporting its plan, which it listed as follows:

• Future land use (determined in consultation with stakeholders)

• The dose criterion for protection of the public

• The time frame for the assessment

• Safety functions (example containment, isolation, retardation)

• The methodology for identification and selection of scenarios, saying “this must include the scenario in which the residue storage facility at the Lynas site becomes the disposal facility for the WLP solids”

• Any necessary measures for active and/or passive institutional control.

It noted that as the safety case develops, there will be a need to update the plant’s overall radiological impact assessment (RIA).

The review also recommended Lynas ready a fund to cover the cost of the long-term waste management and decommissioning and remediation of the plant.

IAEA’s nuclear fuel cycle and waste technology chief Tero Varjoranta, who headed the review team, also urged the federal government to prepare a clear action plan and set a timeframe for the measures to be carried out within the next one to two years — in a short video clip timed to coincide with the public release of its report.

Lynas has said that its plant — which will extract rare earth metals crucial for high-technology products such as smartphones, hybrid cars and wind turbines — will create a RM4 billion multiplier effect annually and will hire 350 skilled workers, 99 per cent of whom will be Malaysians.

Although reports say the plant may earn RM8 billion for Lynas, more than one per cent of the Malaysian GDP, critics have questioned the real economic benefit of the project, pointing to the 12-year tax break the Australian company will enjoy due to its pioneer status.

The federal government defended the Lynas project was a “strategic industry” for Malaysia in spite of the controversy it has attracted .

Sta Maria said the government expects Lynas to spend RM4 million a year, in addition to the RM700 million it has also ready poured into the rare earths plant.

It had previously estimated investment spinoffs of RM2.3 billion from the plant, including the RM300 million already poured into two factories in the Gebeng industrial zone that will produce hydrochloric and sulphuric acid needed to extract the rare earth metals.

'Monster' Tajima Ascending Pikes Peak in Under 10-Minutes Barrier

0 comments
 

Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima, a legend in the international motorsports community with nine series wins in the All Japan Dirt Trial (rally sprint) Championship, five wins in 2WD division for the Asia Pacific Rally Championship, and eight overall victories in New Zealand’s “Race to the Sky” hill climb event.

Despite this the 60-year-old has become the first person to break the fabled 10 minute barrier with a record time of 09:51.278, which smashed his previous record of 10:01.408 set in 2007. The second fastest time was set by Rhys Millen in the custom Hyundai PM580; his time was 10:09.242.

Take a ride on the roof with Monster Tajima as he breaks his own personal record at Pikes Peak with a time of 9:51. First person to break the 10 minute barrier:

Piloting a specially updated Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special with a twin turbocharged 3.1-liter V6 912-horsepower beast is ready run at 8,750 rpm and 890 Nm of torque at 5,850 rpm, the hill climb master experienced a blown radiator and a sudden loss of power steering in the final leg up the famous course.

 The gruelling Pikes Peak course runs 19.9 km (12.42 miles) consisting of 156 turns that begin at an altitude of 2860 meters (9383 feet) and finishes at the 4300 meter (14,107 feet) summit of Pikes Peak. The dramatic rise in altitude deprives engines of 30 percent of their power at the summit and competitors employ special oxygen breathing apparatus to combat the changes in air pressure.

The Pikes Peak Hill Climb covers a mix of paved road, dirt and gravel, and starts at an elevation of 2.89 km (1.78-miles). Interestingly, this will be the last time the famous race, now in its 89th year, will be run with gravel left on the mountain course. Locals have already started paving the course to attract tourists and by next year the entire course is expected to be covered in tarmac.

Teamwork Tips

0 comments
 
There are many rewarding opportunities when a team works well together and of course when a team fails to work well together the process can be very frustrating. When things are going well people will surprise you as hidden talents and strengths start to shine and the group is flowing together.

I have had both rewarding and frustrating experiences working with groups. Here are five teamwork tips that have given me positive experiences.

1. Leadership
For a team to work well together there needs to be a person in the leadership position. Someone who will motivate, inspire, and make sure everyone is moving in the right direction.

2. Clarity
There should be a clear understanding of the purpose of the group. What are the team's goals? What is the team's purpose? What are we striving to accomplish? The clearer this is the easier for people to stay on track.

3. Responsibility
Each member needs to have a clear understanding of what they are responsible for doing. Everyone should know what their job is, when it will be expected, and what the parameters are to work with.

4. Feedback
This is very important as people begin to share their ideas in the group setting. It should be supportive and whenever possible positive. This will help to create a comfortable environment where the team will take chances and be more creative. Learn how to give and receive negative feedback and criticism in a professional and respectful way. It is amazing what people can accomplish when they believe in themselves and are confident in the group.

5. Diversity
This is the most important one; it's what makes a team great. Support the differing strengths of your teammates and allow each person to bring their unique qualities to the project. There can be some incredible surprises when we are open to doing things in new and different ways.

Use these five teamwork tips to make the most out of your sessions and get your team to work well together.
Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things,
but just look at what they can do when they stick together.

Release Your Stress and Tension With Relaxation Technique

0 comments
 
There are many ways to release stress and tension in our life. Chronic stress can have a devastating effect on the mind and body. Some problems it can cause include aggression, fatigue, poor health, and depression.

Life supplies us with a never ending stream of potential stressful situations. Whether you're at work meeting deadlines, on the road fighting traffic, or at home raising a family, stress has a way of finding and affecting everyone.

The following relaxation technique can help you to unwind, relaxing your mind and body. This can lead to more restful sleep, calm nerves, and feeling centered.

It's easy to do, doesn't require any special equipment, and can be done in a few minutes. 5 Easy Steps:

1. Prep your surroundings
No distractions. Shut off your cell phone, tv, dim the lights, etc.... Remove any outside factors that may increase your stress and be distracting.

2. Position
Lay down on your back, preferably on a carpet, thick towel, or yoga mat. Not a soft bed or very hard floor. Laydown with a flat pillow under your head and a bigger pillow under your knees. The pillows are for comfort and support, so your body can completely relax.

3. Breath
Take long, slow, deep breaths in and out. Try breathing in all the way down to your belly, hold for a couple of seconds and release.

4. Feel
Feel the firmness of the ground beneath you. Let it push up against your body and support it. At the same time allow your muscles to melt into the ground. Do this while deep breathing. Remember to breath into your belly, hold for a second or two and release.

5. Action
Physically relax your body. Take it slow. Start at the top of your head and go down inch by inch. Stop when you reach your toes. Gently open your hands all the way to stretch you fingers, then relax. Do the same with your feet and toes.

This is the most important part, so take your time. As you get more familiar with this relaxation technique you can always go faster.

Here are a few tips:
Try to visualize your body as an ice sculpture and watch/feel it melt. Any areas that won't melt are places that need some more attention.

Take a scan of your body for any place that still has tension. You'll often find some places relax very easy and some do not.

Some places to look for hidden tension.
Behind the eyes, the jaw, hands/fingers, feet/toes.

If you find an area of hidden tension, try one of the following methods:
  • Gently flex the muscle for a second or two then relax it.
  • Visualize a pair of hands massaging it for you.
  • Visualize it melting, like a piece of butter
6. Relax
Allow yourself to lay there in your current state of relaxation. If you feel tension again in an area, go back to it and use one of the above techniques to release it. If it won't release all the way, don't stress about it. Let it be. At this point it's ok to let your mind wander, focus on your breath, or just feel the sensations in your body.

All done
That's it! This technique can be done in 3-5 minutes. If you have more time try spending 20-30 minutes, you will be amazed at how peaceful your mind and body will feel.

Qualified to 3rd Round 2012 Olympics Asian: Malaysia 2-1 Lebanon

0 comments
 
Malaysia shocked favourites Lebanon 2-1 to qualify for the third round of the 2012 London Olympics Asian qualifiers on Thursday.

After playing the first leg goalless in Beirut last week, the Malaysians took an early advantage at the Bukit Jalil Stadium when Mohd Irfan’s half volley stormed into the right corner of Mohamad Dakramanji’s net.

Wan Zack doubled their lead four minutes from time. The hosts were reduced to 10-man in the 51st minute when Gary Steven picked up his second yellow card of the night.

Defender Chadi Atie pulled one back for Lebanon but the West Asians failed to find an equaliser in front of a spirited Malaysian defence until the final whistle was blown.

The 12 winners from the second round will advance to the third round whose draw is scheduled for July 7 at AFC House.

The 12 teams will be divided into three groups of four teams each in the third round and play on a home-and-away format from September 21, 2011, to March 14, 2012, to determine the winners who will represent the continent at the Olympics.

Three second-placed teams from the third round will clash in a playoff at a centralised venue from March 25 to 29, 2012, and the winners of this group will meet the representatives of CAF for a berth in the Olympics.

MTV World Stage 2011 Artist Lineup

0 comments
 
30 SECONDS TO MARS
 

Formed by Jared and Shannon Leto, Thirty Seconds To Mars are currently one of the world's biggest rock bands with over 4 million albums sold.

The band first found success with their self-titled debut album in 2002 and solidified their signature sound. Three years later in 2005, success beckoned with the release of their sophomore album A Beautiful Lie. Achieving platinum status in the US, the album also reached gold status in several countries around the globe, and spawned two Modern Rock hits "The Kill" (which was retired from the Billboard Charts after a record breaking 52 weeks) & "From Yesterday" which was a #1 Hit.

With lead guitarist Tomo Milicevic in tow, the band blazed through countless successful tours, playing more than 500 shows around the world including notable music festivals like Lollapalooza (USA), Summersonic (Japan) & Rock Am Ring (Germany). The band released their highly anticipated third album This Is War in 2009. The album was a huge success producing the #1 hits "Kings And Queens," "This Is War" and the cross-over pop smash "Closer To The Edge."

To date Thirty Seconds To Mars have won 10 MTV awards, including the recent "Best Rock Video" for "Kings & Queens" at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and "Best Rock Band" at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards.


NEON TREES
 

Like their name, Neon Trees are a combination of slick pop hoops and sturdy organic rock whose sound is themed with adolescent angst, longing, love lost and found, reminiscing the music of the ‘60s garage rock scene all the way to today’s dance rock anthems.

Their Mercury records debut, ‘Habits,’ produced by Tim Pagnotta spurred the band to critical acclaim with their lead single ‘Animal,’ climbing to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the Alternative Chart as well as #2 on the rock chart. The album was certified Platinum in the US and Gold in Australia, & ranked #1 on Heatseekers Billboard Chart. In June 2010, Neon Trees’s exciting performance on Billboard.com Mashup Monday of the pop hit “Baby” and an acoustic cover of “Animal” garnered over 2.9 million video views. The band was also featured on Rolling Stones.com as Artist of the Week in July 2010 and the global MTV Push platform in January 2011.

Promoting their catalyst of hook-happy new wave and classic rock sound, Neon Trees has toured as the opening act for Thirty Seconds To Mars in the Spring of 2010 during their ‘Into The Wild Tour,’ headlined the Summer 2010 Bang The Gong Tour and performed at Lollapalooza 2010 and Coachella 2011.

Currently embarking on The Surrender Tour, Neon Trees arm themselves with an arsenal of bright crunchy riffs, charismatic lyrics and timeless rock energy reflecting out the band’s signature sound that blazes the future of Neon Trees.


BEAST
 

Beast has established themselves as one of the top acts in the K-pop world since their debut in 2009. The popular boy band from South Korea under CUBE Entertainment consists of 6 members: Yoon Du Jun, Jang Hyun Seung, Yong Jun Hyung, Yang Yo Seob, Lee Gi Kwang, Son Dong Woon.

Originally known as B2ST (Boys to Search for Top), the group’s name was changed to BEAST (Boys of East Standing Tall), a couple of days before they debuted. On October 14, 2009, they released their first mini-album ‘Beast Is The B2ST’ on the same day they also held a showcase performance on MTV. Their EP ‘Shock Of The New Era’, was certified Gold in Asia. Their follow-up EPs ‘Mastermind’ and ‘Light Goes on Again’ continued to dominate the charts with hit songs ‘Soom’ & ‘Beautiful’.

Their first solo concert in December 2010 “Welcome to Beast Airline” was sold out and received explosive reactions from media and fans who flew in from the region. With this success, a second concert “Welcome Back to Beast Airline” was held this year. Beast also received the Newcomer Award at the 19th Seoul Music Awards in 2010.

Before their debut, the group was featured in a MTV documentary titled MTVnB2ST, which showcased their journey leading up to their debut.

Beast recently launched their first full album in May 2011, ‘Fiction And Fact’, with hit single “Fiction”, dominating the charts at #1 on M! Countdown, KBS Music Bank and SBS Inkigayo. 2011 also marked the band’s successful launch into Japan, with their first Japanese single “Shock” debuting at #2, the highest ranking single by a non-Japanese artist. As a new band, the group’s popularity has quickly gained recognition and surpassed other boy bands in their unstoppable run to the top.


POP SHUVIT
 

With their unique blend of funky eclectic beats, hard hitting riffs and adrenaline-fueled live shows, Pop Shuvit - Moots! (vocals), JD (guitar), AJ (bass), Rudy (drums) and Uno (turntables) - is undeniably Malaysia's best hip-hop/rock band.

Anonymous’ Operation Malaysia Second Hacking Target is Office Of The Prime Minister of Malaysia?
The attack will be predicted on 4 JULY 2011, 13:37GMT..Target is pmo.gov.my, Office Of The Prime Minister of Malaysia website.

Here the video from Youtube.


Good evening, Malaysia.

Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, whereby those important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle are celebrated with a nice holiday. I thought we could mark this day sixteenth of june, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now Prime Minister. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

We have seen the censorship taken by the Malaysian government, blocking sites like The Pirate Bay, and WikiLeaks. Malaysia is one of the world's strictest governments, even blocking out movies, and television shows. These acts of censorship are inexcusable. You are taking away a basic human right. The internet is here for freedom, without fear of government interference. Do not think that no one else notices. Your structured government has done the talking, and we hear loud and clear. Let this be an announcement to all your people. This is a sign, a warning, and an opportunity to listen to ideas above your own. In a way you are being stubborn. But how will this help anyone or your country. We fear that if you make further decisions to take away human freedom. We are obligated to act fast and have no mercy. For rules were meant to be broken. And corruption was meant to be washed away and forgiven. Now we will wash your corruption away so be prepared. Take this as a favor.

We shall bring down the entire countries national infrastructure. We shall make this a day to be remembered.

This is your second warning.

We are Anonymous.

We are Legion.

We do not forgive.

We do not forget.

Expect Us.

So, let's be prepared!
