Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND
ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE
IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY .


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few
billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are
unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.
4.. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental,
food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence
the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer
cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses
but only in very sma ll amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
b.. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than
beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline
environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach
down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to no urish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try
and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e.. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.
Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc..) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD RASULULLAH S.A.W.'s LAST SERMON

(Among the contents extracted from the last Sermon delivered by Rasulullah SAW on the Ninth Day of Zulhijjah 10 AH at the Uranah Valley of Mount Arafah)

In the Name of Allah Most Beneficient and Most Merciful

O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I don't know whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you carefully and take this words to those who could not be present here today.

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds. ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (Interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be repealed.

Beware of Satan, for your safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, as much as you have your rights over your women, they too have their rights over you. If they have fulfilled your rights then they too deserve the rights to be fed and clothed in kindness. Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and comitted helpers. And your rights over them are to disallow anyone you dislike into your houses and you are forbidden to commit adultery.

O People, listen to me in earnest, worship Allah, perform the five daily prayers (Solah), fast during the month of Ramadhan, perform Zakat from your wealth, perform Hajj if you can afford to. Know that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. (All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white) You are all equal. Nobody is more superior than the other except in piety and good action.

Remember, that one day you will appear before Allah and be accountable for every deed you have committed. So beware, do not ever be lead astrayed from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, No Prophet or Apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Therefore, O People, reason well, understand my words which I have conveyed to you. I leave behind two things; which if you hold to both strongly, forever, you will never be lead astrayed. That is - the QUR'AN and my SUNNAH (examples)

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me direcly. I bear witness O Allah that I have conveyed Your Message to Your people.

Axis REIT on expansion trail to buy more properties

KUALA LUMPUR: Axis Real Estate Investment Trust (Axis REIT), which posted its best second-quarter results since listing, is on an aggressive expansion plan to inject more properties into the trust this year.

Net property income for its second quarter ended June 30 was up 15%, or RM12.54mil, compared with RM9.59mil in the previous corresponding period.

Stewart LaBrooy, chief executive officer-cum-executive director of Axis REIT Managers Bhd, which manages Axis REIT, said conditions were now “right” for selective acquisitions of properties in prime locations to be placed into the REIT.

“Up until October last year, we were conservative in our acquisition plans but conditions have improved significantly, which is why we are back on the acquisition trail,” he said at a briefing on the company’s results yesterday.

LaBrooy said with the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI closing at an 11-month high of 1,110 points and the narrowing of the discount between market price and the net asset value of Axis REIT units, it was timely for a placement exercise to raise capital for property acquisition.

As at June 30, Axis REIT had 19 properties under its stable with assets under management worth about RM728mil and approved fund size of 255.9 million units.

“The placement of 51,180,200 new units is slated for this third quarter. We hope to raise a minimum of RM75mil, assuming Axis REIT’s share price at the time of placement is at least RM1.55,” LaBrooy said.

The REIT’s latest proposed acquisition is Axis Steel Centre, an industrial complex in Klang, Selangor, for RM65mil cash.

“It’s our second property purchased from a related party at a favourable discount to market price and it can accommodate more rental space, if renovated,” LaBrooy said.

He said Axis REIT had the option to acquire assets from the market or promoters, depending on the price and market condition.

“Who we buy the property from does not matter as long as the purchase is in the interest of our shareholders,” he noted.

On the target number of properties to be injected into the trust this year, LaBrooy said it depended on the funds raised.

Axis REIT Managers director Stephen Tew said on the promoters’ side, there could be three or four properties if funds were available to purchase them.

On the company’s good performance in tough times, Axis REIT Managers general manager (assets & lease management) David Abound said besides solid management and selection of assets purchase, the quality of clients as well as rental to a group of diverse sectors helped cushion the trust from any major fallout in payment from one sector.

Axis REIT’s unaudited gearing was 33.09% or RM242.5mil of its total asset value as at June 30.

Vaksin H1N1 belum ada - WHO

LONDON 15 Julai - Vaksin selesema babi yang benar-benar berkesan tidak dapat disediakan untuk berbulan-bulan lagi, menjejaskan pelan negara-negara untuk mengawal segera wabak yang semakin merebak itu.

Ketua Pertubuhan Kesihatan Dunia (WHO), Margaret Chan berkata demikian selepas Australia dan Jepun melaporkan pertambahan mendadak kes-kes wabak influenza A (H1N1) dan peningkatan drastik kadar kematian di Argentina dari 94 kepada 137 dalam tempoh tiga hari.

"Masih tiada vaksin. Satu akan tersedia tidak lama lagi iaitu pada Ogos ini. Tetapi kewujudan vaksin itu tidak serupa dengan mempunyai vaksin yang terbukti selamat," kata Chan kepada akhbar Britain, Guardian hari ini.

"Data percubaan klinikal vaksin itu tidak akan diperolehi dalam tempoh dua atau tiga bulan lagi," tambahnya, bertentangan dengan kenyataan pegawai kesihatan Britain dan tempat-tempat lain yang menyatakan stok pertama akan mula diperolehi bermula Ogos ini.

Pengarah Penyelidikan Vaksin WHO, Marie-Paul Keiny, yang menyifatkan wabak itu sebagai 'tidak boleh dihentikan' berkata, vaksin untuk selesema babi itu sepatutnya boleh didapati seawal-awalnya pada September ini. - AFP

Penuntut UTM maut jatuh dari tingkat empat

KUALA LUMPUR 13 Julai - Akibat cuba memasuki bilik dengan memanjat melalui tingkap, seorang penuntut Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) maut akibat terjatuh dari tingkat empat Blok C, Kolej Kediaman Siswa Jaya, Setapak di sini hari ini.

Mangsa, Mohamad Khalis Zulkifle, 18, yang baru dua minggu mendaftar untuk mengikuti jurusan Diploma Kejuruteraan Elektrik Kuasa berbuat demikian kerana kehilangan kunci pintu biliknya.

Kejadian berlaku kira-kira pukul 1 pagi itu selepas mangsa ingin memasuki biliknya selepas berjumpa dengan rakannya di blok sama.

Menurut rakan sebiliknya, Hafizuddin Abdul Razak, mangsa menggunakan cara itu untuk memasuki bilik mereka setelah kuncinya hilang sejak seminggu lalu.

''Dia memasuki bilik di sebelah yang tidak berkunci dan memanjat tingkap bilik air sebelum menyusur ke anjung di bilik kami.

''Entah bagaimana pemegang tingkap bilik yang dipegangnya tercabut dan menyebabkan dia hilang kawalan dan menjerit sebelum terjatuh.

''Kami terkejut mendengar bunyi yang sangat kuat sehingga rakan-rakan di blok lain keluar untuk melihat," katanya ketika ditemui di tempat kejadian di sini malam tadi.

Hafizuddin berkata, ketika kejadian dia berada di dalam bilik bersama lima rakan yang lain dan sedang menonton cakera padat video (VCD).

''Mungkin Khalis ada mengetuk pintu tetapi kami tidak dengar kerana bunyi bising,'' ujar beliau.

Katanya, arwah tidak menunjukkan sebarang perlakuan yang pelik sebelum itu malah mereka berdua makan bersama.

Beliau berkata, mangsa yang berasal dari Kluang, Johor, merupakan seorang peramah, suka mengambil berat mengenai kawan-kawan dan aktif.

Sementara itu, rakan di sebelah bilik mangsa yang dikenali sebagai Amirul Hakim berkata, sebelum kejadian arwah memasuki biliknya dan menegur supaya tidak tertumpah kopi di penjuru katilnya.

''Ketika itu saya sedang baring di atas katil, arwah menegur dan terus ke tandas untuk memanjat tingkap.

''Kami tidak menyangka sesuatu yang buruk akan berlaku kerana dia sudah biasa," kata Amirul lagi.

Ketua Polis Daerah Sentul, Asisten Komisioner Zakaria Pagan ketika dihubungi mengesahkan kejadian itu dan mengklasifikasikan sebagai kes mati mengejut.

Dalam pada itu, suasana sedih menyelubungi bilik mayat di Jabatan Forensik Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) ketika ahli keluarga mangsa hadir untuk menuntut jenazah.

Ibu Khalis yang enggan dikenali berkata, anaknya itu tidak pernah berjauhan dengan mereka sekeluarga sebelum ini sehinggalah arwah menuntut di ibu negara.

''Saya sempat berbual dengan arwah melalui telefon dan bertanya khabar pada pukul 6 petang semalam. Tak sangka pula ia yang terakhir," katanya.

Beliau menyifatkan arwah yang merupakan anak kedua daripada enam beradik itu sebagai seorang yang taat dan berpegang kuat kepada agama.

Jenazah pelajar itu akan dibawa pulang ke kampung halamannya di Bandar Kluang, Johor, untuk dikebumikan.

My Ride: Extended the Top Torque

My Ride |Gen.2 1.6 MT [2006 Nov]
Is it the right way of calling Improvement? Enhancement? or just Extended? or may be all the words goes to the same meaning of what have i done to my ride.

Till yesterday, at last ,i did what i am waiting for. I bought a set of Denso IT 20 (2 weeks before -cost me around RM140), and then, a set of Arospeed Sparkplug Cable 10.2mm (cost me around RM100 only). So, within RM240, i can feel a lot of improvement due my engine performance. Eventually, i bought a cute magnetic fuel saver cost me just around RM40 (including the fitting cost). So, all those things make my ride better and smoothly during the driving.


The OEM Spark plug Cable ( Age: 2.5 years old)

After removing the OEM spark plug cable, my engine looks 'Nonsense'

The person that responsible to my ride and my arospeed sparkplug cable [Ketexlaju]
if something wrong happened to my ride. BEWARE Ketexlaju! hihihi


The Arospeed Sparkplug Cable 10.2mm (cost me only RM100)- thank you my friend: syah1982

The extra stuff: Magsaver Fuel Saver Magnetic (cost me around RM40)

Gorgeous! I love to see it, I love to ride it
They give me a lot of improvement. Thank you Denso IT 20 + Arospeed Sparkplug Cable 10.2mm


Acknowledgment:
A thousand of applause to my friend Syah1982 and Ketexlaju @ka CikguBad for your help and adviced.

How I Explained REST to My Wife

Huge thanks to YAMAMOTO Yohei, Karl Dubost, jishin, Barbz, Tordek, Edgard Arakaki, keven lw, respectively. If you know of additional translations, please leave a comment with the location.

Wife: Who is "Roy Fielding"?

Ryan: Some guy. He’s smart.

Wife: Oh? What did he do?

Ryan: He helped write the first web servers and then did a ton of research explaining why the web works the way it does. His name is on the specification for the protocol that is used to get pages from servers to your browser.

Wife: How does it work?

Ryan: The web?

Wife: Yeah.

Ryan: Hmm. Well, it’s all pretty amazing really. And the funny thing is that it’s all very undervalued. The protocol I was talking about, HTTP, it’s capable of all sorts of neat stuff that people ignore for some reason.

Wife: You mean "http" like the beginning of what I type into the browser?

Ryan: Yeah. That first part tells the browser what protocol to use. That stuff you type in there is one of the most important breakthroughs in the history of computing.

Wife: Why?

Ryan: Because it is capable of describing the location of something anywhere in the world from anywhere in the world. It’s the foundation of the web. You can think of it like GPS coordinates for knowledge and information.

Wife: For web pages?

Ryan: For anything really. That guy, Roy Fielding, he talks a lot about what those things point to in that research I was talking about. The web is built on an architectural style called "REST". REST provides a definition of a "resource", which is what those things point to.

Wife: A web page is a resource?

Ryan: Kind of. A web page is a "representation" of a resource. Resources are just concepts. URLs—those things that you type into the browser…

Wife: I know what a URL is..

Ryan: Oh, right. Those tell the browser that there’s a concept somewhere. A browser can then go ask for a specific representation of the concept. Specifically, the browser asks for the web page representation of the concept.

Wife: What other kinds of representations are there?

Ryan: Actually, representations is one of these things that doesn’t get used a lot. In most cases, a resource has only a single representation. But we’re hoping that representations will be used more in the future because there’s a bunch of new formats popping up all over the place.

Wife: Like what?

Ryan: Hmm. Well, there’s this concept that people are calling "Web Services". It means a lot of different things to a lot of different people but the basic concept is that machines could use the web just like people do.

Wife: Is this another robot thing?

Ryan: No, not really. I don’t mean that machines will be sitting down at the desk and browsing the web. But computers can use those same protocols to send messages back and forth to each other. We've been doing that for a long time but none of the techniques we use today work well when you need to be able to talk to all of the machines in the entire world.

Wife: Why not?

Ryan: Because they weren’t designed to be used like that. When Fielding and his buddies started building the web, being able to talk to any machine anywhere in the world was a primary concern. Most of the techniques we use at work to get computers to talk to each other didn’t have those requirements. You just needed to talk to a small group of machines.

Wife: And now you need to talk to all the machines?

Ryan: Yes – and more. We need to be able to talk to all machines about all the stuff that’s on all the other machines. So we need some way of having one machine tell another machine about a resource that might be on yet another machine.

Wife: What?

Ryan: Let’s say you’re talking to your sister and she wants to borrow the sweeper or something. But you don’t have it – your Mom has it. So you tell your sister to get it from your Mom instead. This happens all the time in real life and it happens all the time when machines start talking too.

Wife: So how do the machines tell each other where things are?

Ryan: The URL, of course. If everything that machines need to talk about has a corresponding URL, you've created the machine equivalent of a noun. That you and I and the rest of the world have agreed on talking about nouns in a certain way is pretty important, eh?

Wife: Yeah.

Ryan: Machines don’t have a universal noun – that’s why they suck. Every programming language, database, or other kind of system has a different way of talking about nouns. That’s why the URL is so important. It let’s all of these systems tell each other about each other’s nouns.

Wife: But when I'm looking at a web page, I don’t think of it like that.

Ryan: Nobody does. Except Fielding and handful of other people. That’s why machines still suck.

Wife: What about verbs and pronouns and adjectives?

Ryan: Funny you asked because that’s another big aspect of REST. Well, verbs are anyway.

Wife: I was just joking.

Ryan: It was a funny joke but it’s actually not a joke at all. Verbs are important. There’s a powerful concept in programming and CS theory called "polymorphism". That’s a geeky way of saying that different nouns can have the same verb applied to them.

Wife: I don’t get it.

Ryan: Well.. Look at the coffee table. What are the nouns? Cup, tray, newspaper, remote. Now, what are some things you can do to all of these things?

Wife: I don’t get it…

Ryan: You can get them, right? You can pick them up. You can knock them over. You can burn them. You can apply those same exact verbs to any of the objects sitting there.

Wife: Okay… so?

Ryan: Well, that’s important. What if instead of me being able to say to you, “get the cup,” and “get the newspaper,” and “get the remote”; what if instead we needed to come up with different verbs for each of the nouns? I couldn’t use the word “get” universally, but instead had to think up a new word for each verb/noun combination.

Wife: Wow! That’s weird.

Ryan: Yes, it is. Our brains are somehow smart enough to know that the same verbs can be applied to many different nouns. Some verbs are more specific than others and apply only to a small set of nouns. For instance, I can’t drive a cup and I can’t drink a car. But some verbs are almost universal like GET, PUT, and DELETE.

Wife: You can’t DELETE a cup.

Ryan: Well, okay, but you can throw it away. That was another joke, right?

Wife: Yeah.

Ryan: So anyway, HTTP—this protocol Fielding and his friends created—is all about applying verbs to nouns. For instance, when you go to a web page, the browser does an HTTP GET on the URL you type in and back comes a web page.

Web pages usually have images, right? Those are separate resources. The web page just specifies the URLs to the images and the browser goes and does more HTTP GETs on them until all the resources are obtained and the web page is displayed. But the important thing here is that very different kinds of nouns can be treated the same. Whether the noun is an image, text, video, an mp3, a slideshow, whatever. I can GET all of those things the same way given a URL.

Wife: Sounds like GET is a pretty important verb.

Ryan: It is. Especially when you’re using a web browser because browsers pretty much just GET stuff. They don’t do a lot of other types of interaction with resources. This is a problem because it has led many people to assume that HTTP is just for GETing. But HTTP is actually a general purpose protocol for applying verbs to nouns.

Wife: Cool. But I still don’t see how this changes anything. What kinds of nouns and verbs do you want?

Ryan: Well the nouns are there but not in the right format.

Think about when you’re browsing around amazon.com looking for things to buy me for Christmas. Imagine each of the products as being nouns. Now, if they were available in a representation that a machine could understand, you could do a lot of neat things.

Wife: Why can’t a machine understand a normal web page?

Ryan: Because web pages are designed to be understood by people. A machine doesn’t care about layout and styling. Machines basically just need the data. Ideally, every URL would have a human readable and a machine readable representation. When a machine GETs the resource, it will ask for the machine readable one. When a browser GETs a resource for a human, it will ask for the human readable one.

Wife: So people would have to make machine formats for all their pages?

Ryan: If it were valuable.

Look, we've been talking about this with a lot of abstraction. How about we take a real example. You’re a teacher – at school I bet you have a big computer system, or three or four computer systems more likely, that let you manage students: what classes they’re in, what grades they’re getting, emergency contacts, information about the books you teach out of, etc. If the systems are web-based, then there’s probably a URL for each of the nouns involved here: student, teacher, class, book, room, etc. Right now, getting the URL through the browser gives you a web page. If there were a machine readable representation for each URL, then it would be trivial to latch new tools onto the system because all of that information would be consumable in a standard way. It would also make it quite a bit easier for each of the systems to talk to each other. Or, you could build a state or country-wide system that was able to talk to each of the individual school systems to collect testing scores. The possibilities are endless.

Each of the systems would get information from each other using a simple HTTP GET. If one system needs to add something to another system, it would use an HTTP POST. If a system wants to update something in another system, it uses an HTTP PUT. The only thing left to figure out is what the data should look like.

Wife: So this is what you and all the computer people are working on now? Deciding what the data should look like?

Ryan: Sadly, no. Instead, the large majority are busy writing layers of complex specifications for doing this stuff in a different way that isn’t nearly as useful or eloquent. Nouns aren’t universal and verbs aren’t polymorphic. We’re throwing out decades of real field usage and proven technique and starting over with something that looks a lot like other systems that have failed in the past. We’re using HTTP but only because it helps us talk to our network and security people less. We’re trading simplicity for flashy tools and wizards.

Wife: Why?

Ryan: I have no idea.

Wife: Why don’t you say something?

Ryan: Maybe I will.

ReCom Wiki: A new media...

The ReCom team is glad to present to you a momentous development in ReCom: the ReCom Wiki, a Malaysian Education encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

As we all know, ReCom is a great resource for education and scholarships. Our forum is frequented by helpful contributors who consist of current students, scholarship applicants, experienced seniors and even university graduates throughout the world. While we have always been enthusiastic in sharing our experience, there remains an issue: Year after year, a new batch of people visit the forum, and instead of searching through the rich information in existing threads, they post a question which has been answered for 257 times in the forum's history.

A Wiki is what we propose to be the solution to this problem. "What is a wiki?" You may ask. A wiki is a collaborative website whose content can be edited by anyone who has access to it. Put simply, we are building an encyclopaedia for Malaysian education and scholarships. We invite everyone to build this wiki together, and make it the ultimate one-stop destination for every information-seeker who visits the website.

So how do you contribute in this wiki? Just visit http://recom.org/wiki/ (or easier, http://wiki.recom.org). On the home page we have already set up a few pages for you guys to have a look. For example, clicking on Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia will lead you to a page about SPM which we happily copied off Wikipedia (*Read the footnote about copying information from external website). Just click on "edit" on the top of each page, and you will be able to edit the content of that particular page. What if you want to set up a page about University of Nottingham and there isn't an existing page yet? Just type in "University of Nottingham" in the search form on the sidebar, if it doesn't exist yet you will then have the option of creating a new article about it.

Yes it is that easy.

For more information, you can read up on the Tutorial page of the wiki. To get a feel of what we hope to achieve, visit The Students Room Wiki, for example, the article on University of Oxford. If you have any doubt, don't worry, just put in the information first, the rest of us will guide you along the way. Make sure you follow the wiki guideline below, and together we shall make ReCom Wiki a success. Now, go and have fun writing your first encyclopaedia article.

ReCom Wiki Guideline

1. This wiki is intended as an encyclopaedia for information regarding education for Malaysian students. Irrelevant articles e.g. "Great White Shark" or "Harry Potter" will be removed without notice.

2. As with all encyclopaedias, all articles are to be written based on facts instead of opinions, as far as possible. The neutrality of the article is important to any encyclopedia to preserve it's integrity. As such, there should not be any tinge of bias in whatever that you are writing. For example, when comparing one scholarship to another one should list down the good and bad points for everyone to evaluate and not lean to any side.

3. All statements should be cited from either reliable websites or ReCom posts. Citations should be noted and listed at the bottom of the page itself. Please refer to "help: citation" for more information.

4. The administrators reserve the right to remove, edit or censor posts that violate the rules above.

5. Usage of proper English is required here in our wiki to enhance readability. Usage of non-standard Manglish words and phrases are not encouraged since it may result in misunderstanding of the contents.

6. In event of extensive misuse/vandalism, the pages may be locked down by the administrators. Further changes to the article shall be carefully screened via the discussions page for that particular article

7. Article of the Day (Month)
Should an article reach a certain level of standard in regard to its contents and language, you may nominate the article to be included in the pool of articles to be considered as article of the day. Requirements to be considered includes helpfulness to a good number of people as well, absense of unverified claims, and usage of proper English language.

8. Please make sure that you verify the source of information before entering it in the wiki. We understand that despite best efforts it's possible to make errors via inaccurate source or misquotation, hence errors of such nature is acceptable. However, blatant vandalism, intentionally misleading statement, incendious sentences and other inappropriate behaviours are considered an offense in this wiki. We will give warnings for the first two offense, and the third offense will result in a permanent ban in the wiki.

Exercising in the morning is important

I like to kick start my day by getting some exercise in the morning. As you may or may not know the morning is the best time to exercise and there are several reason for this.

First of all when you get up and workout right away whether running, biking, swimming or doing weights, there is nothing to really stop you. If you wait until the evening you are often stuck because you can have commitments that will get in the way and as we all know if you do not make time for exercise it will disappear very quickly

Another reason to workout in the morning is to get your metabolism going and to jump start your body and mind for the day ahead. There is nothing like getting your heart rate and sweat going. After getting a workout in the morning you have a clearer head and a lot of energy. This is one of my main reasons for getting my morning workout in.

Lastly, the best reason for working out in the morning is that you will raise your metabolism and will burn more calories in the morning. If you were not to work out in the morning then you would keep that slow metabolism until lunch but if you do get that workout in you are going to be pumping up that metabolism and burning lots of calories.

One more tip. After you workout in the morning try to wait an hour or so before you eat. There is a good fat burning going on right after your workout and if you eat right away then your body will not burn the fat but instead will take the glucose out of what you have just eaten.
