Steve Jobs


3 apples were changed the world.
First, Eva ate an apple;
Second, an apple dropped on Newton's head;
and lastly, Steve Jobs built Apple.

"No one wants to die. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it."

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc., who introduced simple, well-designed computers for people who were more interested in what technology could do rather than how it was done, died Wednesday at age 56.

In April Steve Jobs seemed frail sparking speculation he may resign. In a brief statement, Apple announced the death but did not say where he died. Steve suffered from a rare form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant in 2009, and he stepped down as Apple’s chief executive on Aug. 24.

Jobs has battled a less common variety that grows far more slowly and develops in the hormone-secreting section of the pancreas, according to USA Today. Although diagnosed in 2003, his illness was not disclosed until the following year, after he'd had surgery.

The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction governs the way potential becomes reality.
Its principles are:
1. Like attracts Like
2. Focus causes Expansion

Another way of defining the Law of Attraction is:
Thought + Allowance = Manifestation
or...
You get of what you are expecting.
People with good character and attitude attract others with same behavior.
If we focus on something we want or do, we can expand the possibility of success.

Remember:
You have an unlimited ability to think and talk about what you love.
Therefore, you have an unlimited ability to bring everything good in life to you.

I'm Sorry


I've never really found the time
To see what's on the other side of me
Never really had the time
To open my eyes to look, to see

I've never really bothered
To get close to the ground
Been in my fortress forever
By my narrow views I am bound

Chorus
I've grown tired of stupid games
That tell us we're not the same, and
Today I come in all eagerness

I've grown tired of stupid games
That tell us we're not the same, and
Today I come seeking for forgiveness

There's really no point in fighting
And blaming all those around
I want to see myself within you
You're the treasure that I found

Chorus
Now I am glad I took the time
To see what's on the other side of me

Lung Disease

Two common and closely related lung diseases are emphysema and chronic bronchitis or medically know as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Chronic bronchitis – is an inflammation that ends up scarring the lining of the bronchial tubes.
Emphysema – causes the walls between the air sacs within the lungs to become weak and break, making it hard to feel like we get enough air.

COPD develops slowly. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit the ability to do routine activities and the person may eventually require an oxygen tank or even mechanical respiratory assistance to breathe. Other treatments include bronchodilators, antibiotics, and exercise to strengthen muscles.

People with lung disease often feel like they struggle just to breathe, so exercise seems out of the question. However without enough exercise, you body becomes less conditioned, your muscles become less efficient at using oxygen and you enter vicious cycle of becoming more and more short of breath during less and less physical activities.

Shortness of breath is not due to lung disease alone. The deconditioned muscles cause weakness and much of your shortness of breath.

Leg Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) or leg artery disease is a condition similar to coronary artery disease and carotid artery disease. PAD is a problem with blood flow in the arteries that causes leg pain because of decreased arterial blood flow. One of the symptoms of PAD is pain in the muscles of the leg.



Major risk factors for PAD are:
1. Cigarette smoking
2. diabetes mellitus
3. older age (older than 40 years)
4. hypertension
5. hyperlipidaemia
6. hyperhomocystinaemia

People with Type 2 diabetes have 3-4 times the usual risk for PAD and intermittent claudication. They also tend to develop PAD at earlier ages and to be at a significant risk for heart disease. It is important to treat this disease not only because it may place a greater risk for limb loss but also for having a heart attack or stroke. People with PAD are 3 times more likely to die of heart attacks or strokes than normal people.

Exercise training improves blood flow in the leg and in many cases in proving to be as beneficial as medications and surgical procedures in increasing pain free walking distance. Exercise must be regular and consistent of the benefit will be lost.

Fit Tools To Your Needs & Use It Wisely

There are many technological tools that may help us to manage our time better, such as cell phones, computers and others.
Before choosing these tools, ask our self:
1. Do I need it?
2. Do I need all its features?
3. Is it easy to use?
4. How reliable is it?
5. How long will it meet my needs?

We must know what we want, get what we want, search intelligently and quickly on the information properly before deciding an investing on the right tools that benefit us.

Work environment is important to time management. Supportive work environment should have the following:
a) Comfortable and ergonomic chair;
b) Bright lighting;
c) Comfortable and constant temperature
d) Window
e) Sufficient work place
f) Storage for active materials.

We need to be more productive with our computer system by deleting unused files and free up space, back up data, install and learn features of the needed programs. Emails should be concise and brief using clear and interesting subject, avoid using all caps and copy only to relevant persons. To send long messages as attachments not email text, check and delete messages, regularly use phone calls for important messages, check grammar and spelling and use auto response when away.

Filing is important for time management and the three suggestions for more time-efficient filing system are:
a) Pick the most appropriate order from four major orders- alphabetic, topical, numeric and chronological;
b) Naming files simply and logically by putting a noun first then a modifier and place documents within a folder with the most recent documents first;
c) Prune files periodically at least once a month by spending an hour thinning files and move necessary documents to storage.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness that causes widespread pain. It is actually a form of “muscular rheumatism”, also commonly known as “soft tissue rheumatism”. [Rheumatism is aches and pains, from 3 structures-the joints (as in arthritis), the bones (as in osteoporosis), or the muscle and soft tissue, i.e. the ligaments and tendons as in fibromyalgia).
People with FMS often have pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons. The pain is usually felt in specific parts of their body, areas known as pressure points. Common pressure points are the front of the knees, the elbows, the hip joints and around the neck. When a fibromyalgia patient presses on these pressure points, they will feel pain or slight discomfort.
Some sufferers also report concentration and memory problems. Fibromyalgia may also create many other symptoms that feed on each other for example; the jerking of limbs causes a lack of sleep that causes more pain. Fibromyalgia rarely affects men. Approximately 90% of all sufferers are females. According to western data, FMS, which has no specific ethnic predisposition, afflicts females much more than males in an approximate ratio of 20:1.FMS is seen in all age groups from young children through older adults, although for most patients the systems begin in their 20s or 30s.

Studies show that:

1. SCIENTISTS working with the Cochrane Musculoskeletal Group found and analyzed 16 studies that tested over 700 people who had FMS, with most the people women and between the ages of 31 and 55.Among the findings are: Aerobic exercise e.g.: cycling, aerobic dance, whole body aerobics or walking for at least 20 minutes a day, twice a week for 6 weeks improved aerobics (cardiovascular) fitness, tenderness and the intensity of pain in people with FMSJ. Some studies showed that people slept better, were less tired, had an overall sense of well-being, or thought they moved around better or could perform tasks. Exercises to improve muscle strength, such as squats, knee and trunk extensions and bench presses improved pain, strength and reach, and psychological well-being in one study.

2. IN large-patient population studies, about 20% of fibromyalgia patients see a decrease in their major symptoms when they exercise, and 37% specifically feel less pain. Exercise, in these studies, was defined as any activity which increased the heart rate by 40 / 85%; a frequency of at least 3 times a week; duration of at least 20 minutes; and a term of at least 6 weeks.

3. IN a Norwegian study, 33 women with fibromyalgia who had taken part in exercise and patient education programmes back in early 90s, were interviewed 6-8 years after the programme’s completion, and evaluated on a variety of measures including fibromyalgia symptoms, daily activities, and ability to cope with everyday life.
The finding: All of the 33 still reported widespread pain and 79% still had enough tender points to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia. However, when compared to their conditions 6-8 years earlier, the women who had participated in the programme had fewer tender points and reported significantly less pain and fatigue.

4. IN study, 68 women with fibromyalgia were randomly assigned to a week, twice-weekly exercise programme consisting of either strength training or stretching. The subjects involved in strength training experienced “an improvement in overall disease activity”, which was greater than the improvements reported by those involved in stretching. A year later, the people in the stretching group had pain just like before, but the people in the strengthening group had some protective effect from their exercise.

Learn to Say Goodbye

Long winded people are time wasters in business. There are ways to deal with those "talkers"

A) On Phone
- Call talkers when are in a hurry
- Pretend to be interrupted
- Call screening and reply by email, fax and voice mail

B) In person
- Remain standing so that talker feels uncomfortable to take long
- Stand up when finished the conversation
- Continue your discussion while walking and doing the works

C) Drop-in Visitors
- Close the door to avoid interruptions
- Post a “Do Not Disturb" sign.
- Suggest another time and place to talk

Besides, use your body language, be blunt to make your point and monitor yourself.

Read Better or Less

Reading is the greatest time waster in business but is essential in getting useful information.



We can read efficiently and effectively:-
- Read the executive summary before the entire reports
- Highlights important words to ease finding
- File relevant article for future reference
- Discard outdated magazine

We can read less by:
- Subscribe publications with Executive Book Summaries
- Block out and screen irrelevant incoming information/material

We can reduce words received by:
- Toss mail that's junk
- Limit the unwanted mail
- cancel unuseful subscriptions.

Immune System

Moderate regular exercise may enhance our immune system killing bacteria and viruses more rapidly through better circulation.
Intense exercise may suppress immune system as our body produces cortisol and adrenaline (Stress) hormone which raise our blood pressure and cholesterol level.



Exercise help to strengthen our immune system by:-
1) Flushing bacteria out from the lungs which carries airborne illness and carcinogens (Cancer - causing cells). Increase waste output, urine and sweat.
2) Increase rate of sending antibodies or white blood cells (Our body’s defence cells) to detect illness earlier that trigger the release of hormone and warning of intruders.
3) Temporary elevation of temperature may inhibit bacterial growth.
4) Slows down the release of stress related hormones.
5) Increase the natural killer cells, one of the first lines of defence against viruses.

Our immune systems consist of the following:-
Skin and mucous membranes; Tonsils and adenoids; Thymus; Spleen; Lymph nodes; Appendix; Small area of small intestine and bone marrow.

The functions of the white cells are:-
1) T lymphocytes (T stands for thymus-derived) – switching on our immune cells to fight against when there is intruders and switching off when no intruders.
2) B cells – so called the phagocyte (Well known as Macrophage). Eats all sorts of debris in tissue and in the bloodstream and dispose them. They alert certain T cells to the presence of antigens.
3) Killer, suppressor and helper T cells can mutate into cancer cells.
4) Natural killer cells – searching for the cancer cells and destroy them.

Heart Disease

The human heart is truly a marvelous piece of evolutionary engineering. It pumps about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime. It pumps blood through more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels – enough to circle the equator twice. However, heart attacks kill some 3 out of every 10 Malaysians who die (Star, 24.6.07).

Heart diseases refer to diseases of the heart and the blood vessel system within the heart, such as:
1) Coronary artery disease (CAD) is caused by atherosclerosis – the buildup of plaques in blood vessels that feed your heart. CAD causes chest pain as the coronary arteries can’t supply enough blood and oxygen to the heart. It also causes heart attacks (in which part of the heart muscle dies due to blockage of the artery).
2) Heart failure (in which the heart is not able to pump blood through the body as well as it should).
3) Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats).

Aerobic exercises such as walking, jogging, running, swimming and bicycling can help people with heart disease in the following ways:
1) Make the heart stronger, helping it pump more blood and oxygen to the body.
2) prevent, reverse or limit the progression of heart diseases by raising high-density lipoproteins (HDL), reducing levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) which clogs the arteries, increasing insulin sensitivity, burning calories, reducing body fat and lowering blood pressure.
3) Reduce the death rate in heart attack patients by 20-25%.
4) Improve quality of life (such as more self confidence, lower stress and less anxiety).

Yeah... Stranger Again

Every relationship goes through stages. Where and how each stage develops is ultimately up to each person. While we always hope for the best, we often can't avoid the inevitable.

Watching this makes my emotion partially sad and feeling sweet at once. I love this video, it is so true.

BN Has Remained In Power In Sarawak


The Barisan Nasional (BN) has managed to keep its two-thirds legislative majority in Sarawak but today’s results have shattered the coalition’s invincibility and the notion of a fixed deposit in future elections.The DAP doubled its presence to 12 and PKR tripled its representation although the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) lynchpin had contested in 49 seats. PAS lost in all five seats it contested while Independent George Lagong took one seat. The number of state seats to the Opposition pact will spell danger for BN as it could help them win more parliamentary seats when the general election is called by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. PR now has 75 MPs but the Sarawak win could translate into more in the future.


Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud thanks the people of Sarawak for voting Barisan Nasional and that the state cabinet line-up will be announced soon.

Sarawak For Change


UBAH = CHANGE

Sarawakians cry for momentous change, UBAH is unstoppable! Together we support the brave voters-the poor, the suppressed, the oppressed and the downtrodden. UBAH is the epic “War Cry”, heard loud and clear among the Sarawakians.


There are many 4 and 2-legged crocodiles in Sarawak. The former can be easily caught and sold or kept caged in the zoo. But how to deal with the many 2-legged ones. More so, with Mr Deal now in Kuching for the next 6 days. Well, accept the RM angpows, goodies that come your way. But vote with your conscience. Your future and destiny matter most important and not the temporary handouts. Your vote is secret. Strike X for PR.



The right to govern Sarawak, the Land of the Hornbills must rightfully returned to the Dayaks. Dayaks who are bumiputras and comprising of the various tribes and natives of Sarawak. They are in the majority. Remember Tawi Sli and Stephen Kalong Ningkan. Ubah! The epic “war cry” in the Sarawak’s state elections hustings.

Maybe

Maybe God wanted us to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift. Maybe when the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one that has been opened for us. Maybe the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had. Maybe it is true that we don't know what we have got until we lose it, but it is also true that we don't know what we have been missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance what he or she will love you back. Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but if it does not, be content it grew in yours. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.



There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real. Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you are the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
