Ikrar Serumpun

Melayu tak mampu lagi berpecah

jika berpecah mengundang padah

bangsa berpecah agama punah

bangsa sendiri menjadi susah

segeralah usahakan penyelesaian

musyawarah, berdamai itulah pilihan

sefahamanlah kita silaturrahim berjalinan

kesatuan kita satu tujuan

tanpa wawasan bangsa ‘kan tewas

pegangan diri jangan dilepas

pemaju diri bergerak pantas

itu petanda kita bebas

1 raja, 1 kerajaan, 1 wawasan, 1 kepercayaan

1Malaysia

kami pertahankan warisan berzaman

Ini kisah Nujum Pa’ Belalang dengan anaknya,

pada suatu hari:

“Apa itu 1Malaysia, pak?”

“Entahlah Belalang…

coba kauambil semangkuk air,

bapak coba tilikkan.”

“Ini airnya pak.”

“Oh, begini rupanya 1Malaysia…”

Malaysian Malaysia?

Kami mahu hak-hak istimewa

sepertimana orang Melayu dan Bumiputera

Kami mahu bahasa kami

juga diguna sebagai bahasa pengantar

“Apa ini pak? Macam mahu perang saja.”

“Ini namanya keliru Belalang.

Ramai orang tak faham apa itu 1Malaysia.”

“Tilik lagi pak.”

Pelihara Raja Berperlembagaan

Perkukuh Rukun Negara

Perkasa perlembagaan negara

Pupuklah persefahaman dan penerimaan sesame kita

Tuntutlah ilmu di mana-mana,

genggam jaya dan cita-cita

Belalang senyum.

“Belalang tak mahu jadi ahli nujum,

Belalang mahu belajar bagus-bagus,

mahu jadi angkasawan!”

Symantec Identifies “Dirtiest Web Sites of Summer 2009”

Norton Safe Web Uncovers the Top 100 Infected Web Sites


CUPERTINO, Calif. – Aug. 19, 2009 – For many of us, being online is simply a part of everyday life—whether shopping, banking, or connecting with family and friends. But with the seemingly endless reach of the Internet, how can you tell which sites are safe to visit and which may try to deceive you, steal your personal information or crash your computer? Symantec (Nasdaq: SYMC) has identified the “Dirtiest Web Sites of Summer 2009,” the 100 sites with the most threats detected by site ratings service Norton Safe Web as of August 2009. These sites represent the “worst of the worst” based on the number of threats detected by Norton Safe Web.


It comes as no surprise that 48 percent of the Dirtiest Web Sites are, well, dirty— sites that feature adult content. However, the remainder of the list runs the gamut of subject matter, including sites dedicated to deer hunting, catering, figure skating, legal services, and buying electronics. Malware is the most common threat represented on the Dirtiest list, followed by security risks and browser exploits. Simply visiting one of these sites, without downloading or clicking on anything in particular, could put you at risk of exposing your computer to infection, and worse, put your identity, personal and financial information into the hands of cybercriminals.


“This list underscores what our research shows— there has been exponential growth in the number of online threats that are constantly evolving as cybercriminals look for new ways to target your money, identity or assets. In 2008, most new infections occurred while people were surfing the Web1,” said Rowan Trollope, senior vice president, Consumer Business Unit, Symantec. “Norton Safe Web provides visual ratings that let consumers know about potential risks before visiting a site. Armed with this information, consumers are empowered to make informed decisions about which sites to visit.”


What makes these sites so dirty? For starters, the average number of threats per malicious site rated by Norton Safe Web is 23. Compare that with the average number of threats on the Dirtiest Web Sites list—a staggering 18,000 per site. In fact, 40 of the 100 Dirtiest Web Sites have more than 20,000 threats per site. Being dirty is nothing new for 75 percent of sites on the list, which have distributed malware for more than six months.


To find the dirt, Norton Safe Web crawls the Web and performs analysis of millions of Web sites, and benefits from a network of more than 20 million Norton Community Watch members that automatically submit suspicious URLs for analysis in real-time. Norton Safe Web analyzes websites using signature-based file scanning, intrusion detection engines, behavioral detection and install/uninstall analysis to identify security risks including phishing sites, malicious downloads, browser exploits and links to unsafe external sites. In other words – dirty stuff you don’t want on your computer.

By TIFFANY SHARPLES Tiffany Sharples – Tue Jun 16, 4:15 am ET

Dreams may not be the secret window into the frustrated desires of the unconscious that Sigmund Freud first posited in 1899, but growing evidence suggests that dreams - and, more so, sleep - are powerfully connected to the processing of human emotions.

According to new research presented last week at the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies in Seattle, adequate sleep may underpin our ability to understand complex emotions properly in waking life. "Sleep essentially is resetting the magnetic north of your emotional compass," says Matthew Walker, director of the Sleep and Neuroimaging Lab at the University of California, Berkeley. (See the top 10 scientific discoveries of 2008.)

A recent study by Walker and his colleagues examined how rest - specifically, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep - influences our ability to read emotions in other people's faces. In the small analysis of 36 adults, volunteers were asked to interpret the facial expressions of people in photographs, following either a 60- or 90-minute nap during the day or with no nap. Participants who had reached REM sleep (when dreaming most frequently occurs) during their nap were better able to identify expressions of positive emotions like happiness in other people, compared with participants who did not achieve REM sleep or did not nap at all. Those volunteers were more sensitive to negative expressions, including anger and fear.

Past research by Walker and colleagues at Harvard Medical School, which was published in the journal Current Biology, found that in people who were sleep deprived, activity in the prefrontal lobe - a region of the brain involved in controlling emotion - was significantly diminished. He suggests that a similar response may be occurring in the nap-deprived volunteers, albeit to a lesser extent, and that it may have its roots in evolution. "If you're walking through the jungle and you're tired, it might benefit you more to be hypersensitive to negative things," he says. The idea is that with little mental energy to spare, you're emotionally more attuned to things that are likely to be the most threatening in the immediate moment. Inversely, when you're well rested, you may be more sensitive to positive emotions, which could benefit long-term survival, he suggests: "If it's getting food, if it's getting some kind of reward, finding a wife - those things are pretty good to pick up on."

Our daily existence is largely influenced by our ability "to understand our societal interactions, to understand someone else's emotional state of mind, to understand the expression on their face," says Ninad Gujar, a senior research scientist at Walker's lab and lead author of the study, which was recently submitted for publication. "These are the most fundamental processes guiding our personal and professional lives."

REM sleep appears to not only improve our ability to identify positive emotions in others; it may also round out the sharp angles of our own emotional experiences. Walker suggests that one function of REM sleep - dreaming, in particular - is to allow the brain to sift through that day's events, process any negative emotion attached to them, then strip it away from the memories. He likens the process to applying a "nocturnal soothing balm." REM sleep, he says, "tries to ameliorate the sharp emotional chips and dents that life gives you along the way." (See the top 10 medical breakthroughs of 2008.)

"It's not that you've forgotten. You haven't," he says. "It's a memory of an emotional episode, but it's no longer emotional itself."

That palliative safety-valve quality of sleep may be hampered when we fail to reach REM sleep or when REM sleep is disrupted, Walker says. "If you don't let go of the emotion, what results is a constant state of anxiety," he says.

The theory is consistent with new research conducted by Rebecca Bernert, a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology at Florida State University who specializes in the relationship between sleep and suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and who also presented her work at the sleep conference this week.

In her study of 82 men and women between the ages of 18 and 66 who were admitted into a mental-health hospital for emergency psychiatric evaluation, Bernert discovered that the presence of severe and frequent nightmares or insomnia was a strong predictor of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. More than half of the study participants had attempted suicide at least once in the past, and the 17% of the study group who had made an attempt within the previous month had dramatically higher scores in nightmare frequency and intensity than the rest.

Bernert found that the relationship between nightmares or insomnia and suicide persisted, even when researchers controlled for other factors like depression.

Past studies have also established a link between chronic sleep disruption and suicide. Sleep complaints, which include nightmares, insomnia and other sleep disturbances, are listed in the current Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's inventory of suicide-prevention warning signs. Yet what distinguishes Bernert's research is that when nightmares and insomnia were evaluated separately, nightmares were independently predictive of suicidal behavior. "It may be that nightmares present a unique risk for suicidal symptoms, which may have to do with the way we process emotion within dreams," Bernert says.

If that's the case, it may help explain the recurring nightmares that characterize psychiatric conditions like posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Walker says. "The brain has not stripped away the emotional rind from that experience memory," he says, so "the next night, the brain offers this up, and it fails again, and it starts to sound like a broken record ... What you hear [PTSD] patients describing is, 'I can't get over the event.' "

At the biological level, Walker explains, the "emotional rind" translates to sympathetic nervous-system activity during sleep: faster heart rate and the release of stress chemicals.

Understanding why nightmares recur and how REM sleep facilitates emotional processing - or hinders it, when nightmares take place and perpetuate the physical stress symptoms - may eventually provide clues to effective treatments of painful mental disorders. Perhaps, even, by simply addressing sleeping habits, doctors could potentially interrupt the emotional cycle that can lead to suicide. "There is an opportunity for prevention," Bernert says.

The new findings highlight what researchers are increasingly recognizing as a two-way relationship between psychiatric disorders and disrupted sleep. "Modern medicine and psychiatry have consistently thought that psychological disorders seem to have co-occuring sleep problems and that it's the disorder perpetuating the sleep problems," says Walker. "Is it possible that, in fact, it's the sleep disruption contributing to the psychiatric disorder?"

Skrip teater pertamaku

HAYYAN

Sinopsis

Manusia yang sememangnya alpa, leka. Kadangkala kealpaan itu menjadi perhatian orang lain. Justeru mengundang pelbagai tafsiran, andaian. Dalam kehidupan serba singkat ini manusia mencari hakikat kehidupan mereka: tujuan apakah mereka diciptakan, hala tuju mereka dan apa yang mereka inginkan dalam hidup. HAYYAN, manusia yang diciptakan pada asalnya hanya seorang pemerhati kehidupan manusia lain, mula mengarang buah fikirannya ke dalam blognya yang kemudian menjadi ikutan (juga cemuhan) orang ramai. But he does not stop there. Dia terus berkarya hinggalah nyawa adiknya menjadi pertaruhan bahan kritikan sinisnya.


 

Watak, Perwatakan

Hayyan:    Sang pecinta yang sinis, hobinya suka memerhati dan membuat andaian tersendiri tentang kehidupan, juga gelagat manusia di sekelilingnya. Meluahkan pendapatnya menerusi blog hinggakan blognya menjadi ikutan ramai. Ramai juga yang tidak suka dengan 'kritikan'/penulisan tajamnya tapi dia tak peduli semua itu. Akhirnya dia tone down apabila adiknya, seorang minah rempit mati di tempat kejadian ketika cuba menyelamatkan dirinya dari ditangkap polis.

Voice Over:     Alter-ego/suara hati Hayyan.

SPOT ON HAYYAN.

HAYYAN menonton berita yang membosankan. Acap juga dia menukar siaran. Akhirnya dia menutup tv dan kembali ke laptopnya. Dia meng'Google' sesuatu. Tidak menarik. Dia buka YouTube. Terjumpa videoclip yang menarik. Dia menonton dengan minat. Ketawa. Ilham blognya tiba. Dia buka laman blognya. Dari ekor matanya, perasan adiknya mula melangkah keluar rumah tapi tidak ditanya arah tujuannya. Dia seronok melayan ilham yang datang. Kedengaran lagu "Black Magic Woman" berkumandang dari iTunes laptopnya. Dia bertambah seronok dan ghairah melayan ilhamnya. Bertambah seronok apabila membaca komen-komen pembaca yang singgah di laman blognya.


 

VOICE OVER (V.O.):    My pandora's box's already broken, unleashing its utmost terror… [Ketawa] Ini umpama kisah kita, humor tidak lagi menghiburkan, juga tidak lagi menawarkan luka.


 

PENTAS GELAP.


 

Senario: Dataran Merdeka, tengah malam. Kedengaran bising (bunyi mat rempit merempit) dan sorakan teman-teman.


 

V.O.:    Kehidupan ini seketika, sementara. Pinjaman semata. Live life to the fullest!
[Kedengaran mat-mat dan minah-minah rempit bertempiaran dikejar polis.] Kita manusia lalai dan cuai. Adakalanya kita taksub. Kita juga mudah lali dengan segala kesilapan yang bertimbun hingga menjadi dosa yang tidak terhitung.


 

Muncul HAYYAN.

HAYYAN:

Sempena hari ini inginku ucapkan kepada kalian yang berkasih-kasihan
"Selamat Hari Kekasih"
kerna merealisasikan cinta kasih sayang kalian terhadap insan tersayang
kerna menghargai insan tercinta
tidak kurang juga yang cintanya terbalas hari ini

Kepada losers di luar sana yang dikeciwakan insan istimewa
(Hei, aku juga seorang loser ya dan aku tidak segan mengatakannya!)
usah kalian terlampau frust dengan keputusan mereka
senyumlah, ceriakanlah diri anda hari ini
kerna mungkin bakal pengganti akan tiba sebentar lagi (mungkin)
jika tidak, anda juga mungkin tidak akan peroleh pasangan baru kerna dia terlalu takut akan penampilanmu yang KUSUT~~

SERABUT~~

TAK BERSEMANGAT~~ dan sebagainya...
tapi...
sebenarnya...

kita juga bakal menyaksikan manusia-manusia ini terkulai
kerna merealisasikan cinta mereka
yang tinggal hanya >TUT~~!<

jadi apakah aku ini nggak punya hati dan perasaan seperti mereka: rasa ingin dimiliki,

disayangi,

dihargai?
(AWAS! Kucuma bilang demikian, aku tak mau terterpele'ot seperti mereka. aku masih waras pertimbangan ok!)
apakah harus cinta direalisasikan sedemikian sekali?
apakah WAJIB cinta direalisasikan sedemikian sekali?
(ya jika pasangan itu sudah bernikah, ya kan?)
bukankah ada banyak lagi cara merealisasikannya, selain yang ITU?
[ko tulis pandai, ko bagi la solution! ...boring la! itu hari2 dah buat, jemu 'doh!]
Maaf, aku serahkan pada kalian penyelesaian yang lebih bermakna kepada kalian...

apapun, segala perlakuan kalian adalah tanggung jawab kalian
aku cuma pemerhati
kita semua manusia yang acapkali melakukan kesilapan, kesalahan, dosa...
tapi asasnya: tepuk dada, tanyalah diri - Sampai kapan mestiku begini
juga sebagai peringatan kepadaku - ...Sampai aku dikapankan???

ugh~ merapik lagi!

Heh...

bukan hari ini saja kita menghargai yang tersayang, tetapi hari-hari lain juga
dan yang tersayang bukan setakat KEKASIH
malah
ibu
bapa
keluarga
sahabat
guru
negara
Tuhan...
mengingatkanku... bilakah terakhir kita menghadiahkan Al-Fatihah kepada yang telah tiada?

Selamat Hari Kekasih semua
dan
Al-Fatihah kepada yang telah tiada...
Amiin.


 

[Slide show imej tokoh-tokoh seni/teater tanah air yang telah pergi kemudian warga Gaza yang menderita.]

[Bunyi dentuman.]

[Imej/video projection: Minah rempit/bohsia mati di tempat kejadian.]

HAYYAN terkejut melihat adiknya di situ. Dia mendapatkan jasad adiknya dan cuba meminta pertolongan orang yang ada di situ tetapi tiada pertolongan tiba padanya. Adiknya mati di situ juga.

PENTAS GELAP.

HAYYAN masuk ke pentas semula, wajah sedih, insaf. Berpakaian seperti sesudah solat taubat.

HAYYAN:

hampir kecewaku, Kaudatang
linangan syahdu menyambutMu
masih ada lagi sirnaMu dalam diriku

gelincirku, dipapahMu
petunjuk hidayah padaku
masih ada lagi cintaMu padaku

gelapku, penyuluhMu
kemaafan, keampunan pohon rayuku
masih ada lagi Ar-RahmanMu untukku

dalam terangku buta
dalam nyataku tuli
dalam jelasku bisu
dalam gerakku kaku
namun, masih ada lagi Ar-RahimMu buatku

syukurku panjatkan padaMu
apakah ada lagi cinta lain seagung cinta ini


 

SEKIAN.

perihal seorang anak (tajuk lama: haru biru)

patung mainan

suatu masa dahulu aku melihat anak itu menangis

aku lihat poketnya yang kempis

sana sini berlarian

tapak daifnya menapak mengemis

kadangkala ia diumpan, termakan

dicerca sekeliling, diterjang, diherdik...

tika dulu aku lihat seimbas

anak itu hidupnya seperti dulu

keperitan medewasakannya, mematangkannya, mencantikkannya...

cantik? ya!!!

tidak lagi menghuni longgokan sampah

ia pintar mengatur bicara, mengatur gaya

ia kini menghuni deruman-deruman lalu lalang

Hari ini...

sempena hari ini inginku ucapkan kepada kalian yang berkasih-kasihan
"Selamat Hari Kekasih"
kerna merealisasikan cinta kasih sayang kalian terhadap insan tersayang
kerna menghargai insan tercinta
tidak kurang juga yang cintanya terbalas hari ini

kepada losers di luar sana yang dikeciwakan insan istimewa
(Hei, aku juga seorang loser ya dan aku tidak segan mengatakannya!)
usah kalian terlampau frust dengan keputusan mereka
