Penyakit Chikungunya

Penyakit Chikungunya adalah penyakit jangkitan virus yang disebarkan oleh gigitan nyamuk Aedes. Gejala utama jangkitan adalah demam panas, rasa sakit yang teruk pada sendi terutamanya sendi kecil dan ruam. Chikungunya tidak menyebabkan kematian dan adalah ’self-limiting’ ataupun sembuh dengan sendiri. Pesakit cuma memerlukan rawatan simptomatik dan rehat secukupnya, namun gejala sakit sendi boleh berlarutan bagi pesakit yang telah berumur. Rawatan hospital hanyalah untuk keadaan tertentu sahaja. Pesakit kebiasaannya memperoleh imuniti sepanjang hayat. Sepertimana jangkitan virus lain, tiada ubat khusus atau vaksin untuk penyakit Chikungunya. Cara paling berkesan untuk mengelakkannya adalah dengan mengawal pembiakan nyamuk aedes di persekitaran kita.

Spyware still hijacking Internet Explorer

Anti-spyware companies have warned users to be aware of a malicious program that hijacks Web searches and disables security settings in the Internet Explorer (IE) browser.

According to anti-spyware company Webroot on Tuesday, spyware program CoolWebSearch self-installs malicious HTML applications and exploits security flaws in IE. "This has vexed all of us," said Nick Lewis, managing director of Webroot. "For consumers, CoolWebSearch is probably on of the most vicious programs in terms of how nasty it is. It completely hijacks the browser so you can't do anything." Webroot said that CoolWebSearch is the most dangerous program in its latest list of the 10 worst spyware and adware threats. The company's threat research team has also discovered new versions of rogue diallers, keystroke loggers and pornographic Web page displayers. "The people who write this stuff are gaining sophistication in their coding practices as they attempt to evade detection and removal," said Richard Stiennon, Webroot's vice-president of threat research. "These 10 are the most insidious programs in terms of prevalence and effect." Webroot's list of top 10 threats includes PurityScan, a program that displays pop-up ads onto computers and claims it can delete pornographic images on the user's computer; Transponder (vx2), an Internet Explorer "browser helper object" that monitors Web browsing and sends relevant advertisements; KeenValue, an adware program that collects personal information and sends advertisements to users; and Perfect Keylogger, a monitoring tool that records Web sites visited, keystrokes and mouse clicks. It logs passwords, account numbers and other sensitive information. Webroot recommends that users should install Microsoft security patches, avoid using freeware and disable downloads via ActiveX in Internet Explorer. "It's Internet users' choice to keep or remove these programs based on the information available to them," said Stiennon. "We’re making sure they have that information so they are making knowledgeable decisions."

Microsoft won't wait until next regular update to fix severe browser flaw

By Associated Press7:54 AM EST, December 17, 2008 REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — Microsoft Corp. is taking the unusual step of issuing an emergency fix for a security hole in its Internet Explorer software that has exposed millions of users to having their computers taken over by hackers.

The "zero-day" vulnerability, which came to light last week, allows criminals to take over victims' machines simply by steering them to infected Web sites; users don't have to download anything for their computers to get infected, which makes the flaw in Internet Explorer's programming code so dangerous. Internet Explorer is the world's most widely used Web browser.

Microsoft said it plans to ship a security update, rated "critical," for the browser on Wednesday. People with the Windows Update feature activated on their computers will get the patch automatically.

Thousands of Web sites already have been compromised by criminals looking to exploit the flaw. The bad guys have loaded malicious code onto those sites that automatically infect visitors' machines if they're using Internet Explorer and haven't employed a complicated series of workarounds that Microsoft has suggested.
Microsoft said it has seen attacks targeting the flaw only in Internet Explorer 7, the most widely used version, but has cautioned that all other current editions of the browser are vulnerable.

Microsoft rarely issues security fixes for its software outside of its regular monthly updates. The company last did it in October, and a year and half before that.

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to announce that there is a disruption of its Internet services due to circuits fault on Southeast Asia - Middle East - Western Europe 4 (SMW4) submarine cable network between Palermo (Southern Italy) and Alexandria (Northern Egypt) linking Malaysia to Europe. Due to this, customers using Internet services may now experience slow browsing while accessing websites hosted in Europe.

In addition, customers using other IP services such as Virtual Private Network (VPN) and other critical business applications linked to Europe may also experience some service degradation.

To alleviate the problem, some of the links have been rerouted to alternate routes to ease the congestion.

Restoration works on the affected cables are already in progress. However, in the restoration process, traffic to Northern America may experience minor degradation while traffic to other countries is not affected. TM expects the complete recovery of its services by December 31, 2008. TM will make further announcements on the progress of the restoration works.

TM wishes to assure its customers that it is undertaking all necessary measures to restore communications services for its customers as soon as possible.

One Litre of Tears (1リットルの涙) (Ichi Rittoru no Namida)

the cerita

this is a story about a girl who was suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia when she was 15 yo, and struggled very hard to continue her life until her death at the age of 25. the story is based on diary of Kitou Aya, who was suffering the same disease. it's just that the drama has been modernized la kan.. mane ade org zaman tu pakai henpon! ok, she wasnt able to run first, then walk, write, then talk and even eat. the story is about being strong, brave, confidence & etc etc-lah.

spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA)

Cerebellum (in blue) of the human brain

according to wikipedia,

Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) is one of a group of genetic disorders characterized by slowly progressive incoordination of gait and often associated with poor coordination of hands, speech, and eye movements. Frequently, atrophy of the cerebellum occurs.

As with other forms of ataxia, SCA results in unsteady and clumsy motion of the body due to a failure of the fine coordination of muscle movements, along with other symptoms.

The symptoms of the condition vary with the specific type (there are several), and with the individual patient. Generally, a person with ataxia retains full mental capacity but may progressively lose physical control.

the novel / diary

The diary, a true story based on her own life, was originally written in first person. It is about a girl coping with her teenage life along with a degenerative disease. She keeps a diary of not only what she does but how she feels and the hardships she must endure. The diary was published shortly before her death, sold nearly (or more) 18 million copies in Japan.

side effects to the viewers (Achtung!)

if you enjoy this drama deeply, you might understand about the disease (SCA) more, then you might be able to value the gifts that our God gives us, plus, your tears might drop also.. and another effect is, you might spend hours to finish this drama as soon as you can, ahahaha.. so make sure you have enough time to spend before you start watching this, okeh?!!

the soundtrack

aku paling suke lagu Only Human, by K, a Korean singer.. yang ni korang search sndiri kat youtube, aku malas kasi link, hehehe.. ;D

the rate

i would rate this drama 9.0-9.5 (wow!) according to the storyline, actors (all actors cry in this drama, very good-lah! ;D), camera angles, lighting, original sound track, bla bla bla.. i think u should have this copy of cerita-lah, if you are so pokai, then download saja-lah, or if you malas-malas to download, simply copy from your frens who have it-lah!

KUSZA? UDM? Apa dah jadi?

anda masih ingat KUSZA? institusi islamik yang menjadi kebanggaan warga terengganu, boleh dilabel sbg UIA pantai timur.. jika dalam jemaah, org tanye seorang pelajar itu, "belajar kat mane?", apabila jawabnya "...KUSZA..", lantas org yg bertanyakan tu menyuruh pelajar itu menjadi imam, betapa org kita begitu menghormati warga KUSZA.

tapi skrg, jika dijawab "saya belajar kat UDM.." org akan bertanyakan lagi, "ape tu? kat mana UDM tu?"... aku penah tanya seorang pelajar UDM, "..mane tempat lepak best kat terengganu?" dia jwab "laman shahbandar kat BB, budak2 pmpuan UDM slalu lepak2 kat situ, kdg2 kuar tgh2 mlm lepak kat situ.." aku tak tau la mcm mane, or maybe kawan2 pmpuan dia je yg fly kuar tgh2 mlm ke shahbandar..

wat i wanna ask here is, adakah UDM masih islamik spt KUSZA dahulu? kemudian, kenapa namanya UDM (Universiti Darul iman Malaysia?) kenapa bukan UDIM? kenapa tidak disebut sekali perkataan IMAN itu dlm singkatannya? malukah? atau apakah di sebaliknya? aku cuma seorang rakyat terengganu yang ingin mengetahui lebih lanjut, jika ada di antara kalian yang memiliki jawapan, sila utarakan..
