Glorious Quran as guidance.
1. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil A’lamin wa biHi nastain. Selawat dan salam kepada junjungan besar, Nabi Muhammad Sollal-Lah-hu-a’laihi-wa-sallam. 2. Saya mulakan dengan memetik tafsir oleh para ulamak merujuk firman Allahu-Taala dalam surah Al-Insyirah bahawa, pada setiap kesulitan dan dugaan yang kita hadapi, pasti beriring dengannya kesenangan atau kebahagiaan yang berhikmah. 3. Maka hendaknya, begitulah keyakinan yang wajib ada dalam diri kita masing-masing dan semestinya yang diletakkan terhadap keadaan pentadbiran dan pengurusan Kerajaan. Rakyat Malaysia yang dikasihi sekalian, 4. Disebut orang sejak dahulukala, sekali air bah,… sekali pantai berubah. Kendati itu, tengahari ini, 28 haribulan Januari 2016, bertepatan 18 haribulan Rabiul Akhir 1437 Hijrah, satu lagi perutusan penting hendak saya sampaikan, kerana tampaknya Bajet 2016 turut tertakluk kepada perubahan yang berlaku di persekitaran ekonomi global. 5. Apa yang saya ingin perkata dan kongsikan hari ini, lebih bersifat penerang…

TPPA 1. The International Trade and Industry (MITI) Minister says it will take two years to amend 26 laws to meet TPP requirements. 2. This is a clear admission that the TPP limits Malaysia’s freedom to make laws deemed necessary for the country. These laws have been passed by the Malaysian Parliament apparently because they were considered essential and goof for the country. But now they have to be amended because the TPP is apparently more powerful than our elected parliament in determining what laws Malaysia should have. 3. By the same token future laws to be debated in Parliament must be subjected to the requirements or conditions in the TPP. Being right and suitable for Malaysia’s needs is not enough anymore. The needs of TPP will outweigh Malaysia’s needs. 4. Malaysia is not exactly like the other members of the TPP. We have many sensitivities because of our racial mix, our economic disparities, our poverty rates and our low levels of incomes. To correct all the economic, political …
TPPA BAKAL RAGUT KEDAULATAN NEGARA? BUKTI2 SUDAH ADA! 1. Mengikut laporan daripada PBB, sejak 15 tahun kebelakangan ini sahaja, terdapat 127 kes saman syarikat multinasional dibuat terhadap negara berdaulat. Kesemuanya menandatangani perjanjian perdagangan bebas internasional mirip TPPA yang sedang diusahakan oleh kerajaan Malaysia sekarang. 2. Pada tahun 2012, Negara Ecuador telah disaman oleh syarikat Occidental Petroleum milik US sehingga mereka diarahkan membayar 1.7 billon dolar. 3. Di Australia, kerajaannya disaman syarikat tembakau Philip Morris dengan dakwaan mengganggu jualan mereka, akibat tindakan kerajaan menampal amaran merokok membahayakan kesihatan pada setiap kotak rokok yang dijual. 4. Poland dan Sloviakia turut disaman sebuah syarikat kerana membatalkan projek pengswastaan hospital. 5. Afrika Selatan disaman kerana memberikan hak istimewa kepada bumiputera kulit hitam. 6. Kita sudah boleh membayangkan bagaimana perjanjian perdagangan bebas ini jika diamalkan di nega…
Here are Drucker’s ten (10) life principles and expect to discover your own success and more importantly your own significance. 1. Find out who you are. “Whenever people are on the road to success,” Drucker said, “they tend to think of repositioning as something they do if they’re a failure. But I would say that you ought to reposition when you’re a success, because that’s when you can afford it.” But no one can reposition for significance, Drucker claimed, without first knowing who they are and where they belong. 2. Reposition yourself for full effectiveness and fulfillment. “Early in their careers,” Drucker said, “people tend to have a fairly limited timeframe, of four years or so. They can’t visualize what comes after that.” By the time they achieve some measure of success, however, the timeframe expands. “Suddenly they begin to think about options that are twenty, thirty, or more years ahead of them,” Drucker said. Such a long view often brings clarity where none existed before. 3…
