Paul the Octopus Next Assignment!! Kah Kah Kah ......

Quite a hilarious email I received from a good friend.
Lets laugh it out, kah.. kah.. kah.... to suppress tension build up in our daily routine official work.
Nothing sinister behind this posting but as a reminder of the sitiuation surrounding us at the moment (in Malaysia).
As I have said in my earlier postings about Paul's perfect predictions in the World Cup, it's just coincident, it's just coincident...
Paul does not has the psychic power, Paul does not possess supernatural power to decide on an event, it's just his good luck which in the Law of Probability could happened!

Kah.. Kah.. Kah...... Over to you Paul!

So, Spain Won The World Cup - So Do Paul The Octopus!

Another heart broken, my next favourite team, the Netherlands lost the World Cup to Spain after a hard fought and extra time in the final.

Still recovering from the lost of England to Germany in the round of 16, now my expectation for the Dutch to win the Cup fell flat!

Now, Paul the octopus is surely be a mega celebrity for its 100% affirmative prediction. There is a chance Paul might be offered by some famous film producers or directors to star in a play that showcase its ability to predict the outcome of each game the octopus was asked to do.

However, I am still believe all those true predictions by Paul are just coincident. Base on the law of probability, the probability for a 100% of correct prediction does exist, therefore it has nothing to do with psychic or supernatural power of the octopus!

Speaking about the game, I believe the Dutch manager should not have replaced his captain, Giovanni during the second half of the extra time. The Dutch was defending excellently till Giovanni was replaced. If the game was taken to the penalties, there was an even chance the Dutch might have won the Cup. Hard luck for the Dutch, third time failure to land the Cup!

By the way, Paul the octopus will be cherished and adored by most of the Spaniards. Viva Paul!!! See you in two years time, if you are still around, for the 2012 European Championship. See whether you could still predict 100% correct for each game you were ask to do!

Paul Says Spain To Win The World Cup - Do You Buy The Prediction?

Octopus Paul says Spain will win World Cup

BERLIN: Germany's oracle octopus Paul picked Spain to beat the Netherlands in the World Cup final on Sunday in a live television broadcast watched across Europe.

The two-year-old celebrity octopus, who has accurately picked the outcome of all six of Germany's World Cup matches so far, quickly tipped Spain to beat the Netherlands. It took him only three minutes to make up his mind.

"That was fast — it looks like a clear-cut victory for Spain," said Tanja Munzig, spokeswoman for Sea Life in Oberhausen. She was surprised by his speed in picking Spain. For some matches it took Paul 70 minutes to decide.

The octopus, considered by some to be the most intelligent of all invertebrates, got the choice of picking food from two different transparent containers lowered into his tank — one with a Dutch flag on it and one with Spain's flag.

Reaction in Spain was swift, with the country's biggest selling sports daily website Marca.com running the headline: "The octopus Paul makes us champions."

The container Paul opens first is regarded as his pick. On Friday he wasted no time in diving for the container on the right side with the Spanish flag on it.

Two German television networks interrupted their programming for live coverage of the two-year-old celebrity octopus's picks. Networks in Spain, the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe also broadcast Paul's decision live.

Earlier on Friday, Germans heaved a sigh of relief when Paul tipped Germany to beat Uruguay in the World Cup match for third place. There were cheers in offices across Germany after crowds of viewers tuned in to watch Paul live.

Normally he only picks Germany matches. But for the final Sea Life made an exception.

The octopus in Oberhausen turned into a global celebrity for correctly picking the winners of all six of Germany's World Cup matches — including their two defeats to Serbia and Spain.

On Friday Paul first settled on top of the Germany container but after a few minutes shifted to the Uruguay container. Then after about 15 minutes he went back to Germany container, quickly opened the lid and ate the morsel of food inside.

Not an ordinarily superstitious people, Germans have become believers in Paul's possible psychic powers. The country was shocked and distraught when he picked Spain to beat Germany after tipping German wins over Argentina, England, Ghana and Australia.

Paul's selections have become top news across Germany and around the world. Some commentators even wondered aloud whether his improbable winning streak might have begun to influence some of the more superstitious players.

But after Paul accurately picked Spain to beat Germany in the semi-final, some Germans called for a public roasting of the oracle octopus. Newspapers and websites were filled with suggestions on how to cook and eat him.

Officials at Sea Life in Oberhausen have installed extra security to protect their octopus.

"Paul is in safe hands with us," said Munzig.

Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was quoted in Spanish media reports saying — in jest — he was concerned about Paul's safety.

"I am concerned for the octopus...I am thinking of sending him a protective team," Zapatero said.

Spain's Environment and Fisheries Minister Elena Espinosa also said: "On Monday I shall be at the European Council of Ministers and I shall be asking for a (fishing) ban on Paul the octopus so Germans do not eat him."

Comment: By NKLpunya

From the picks of the octopus, it seems this creature is attracted to objects with red and yellow colours , more so a spot in red colour.

It hates green the most and neutral to other colours.

Between Germany and Australia, there is no combination of red and yellow colours to the Austarlian flag, thus Paul chose to sit on the container with the Germans flag.

Between Germany and Serbia, though there are red and yellow colours on the Germans flag but the red spot (Serbia's logo) at the center of the Serbia flag which perhaps attracted the octopus the go near.

Between Germany and Ghana, the octopus seems to hate the green strip at the bottom of Ghana's flag thus distracted the octopus to go near.

Between Germany and England and Germany-Argentina, there is no combination of red and yellow colours to the England and Argentina flags, therefore not attracted to the octopus.

The above observations are supported by Paul's preference to pick Germany over Uruguay in the third placing clash between the two coutries. Uruguay's flag is made up of light blue and white stips with a light faded yellow sun logo within the white background at the top left edge of the flag. Blue and white do not really attracted the octopus so as the faded yellow spot of the sun.

However between Germany and Spain, both countries have red and yellow colours to their respective flag but Paul was probably most attracted to the red logo at the center of the Spain flag. Probably, the black strip or band on the Germans flag distracted the octopus to go near.

Now between Spain and the Netherlands, like England, Argentina, Ghana and Australia, there is no combination of red and yellow colours to the Netherlands' flag. No wonder Paul was so fast in making the decision to go to sit at the top of the container that contains the flag of Spain.

For me, it's just coinsident that the behaviour of Paul the octopus in choosing to sit at the top of the respective container matched the results of the games between the said countries.

Between Spain and the Netherlands, I'm going for the Netherlands. The Dutch play the beautiful game that you enjoy to see. On the other hand, Spain tends to make the game boring with their short passes around the center of the field, especially when they played Paraguay and they deserve to lose to Switzerland. Spain played a cautious and slow game when they met Germany, however the Germans played to the tune of the Spanish which was not in their advantage. Compounded by the lost of Thomas Muller, due to the two yellow cards he received, it's not pity but deserve that the Germans lost to the Spanish.

But with the Netherlands, I believe the Dutch would not take the same approach as what the Germans has done. Obviously, the final is for the Dutch to lose if they play to the tune of the Spanish. The Dutch must play like when they beat Brazil and Uruguay. They must possess the ball as much as possible and to get it back from the Spanish once the ball is with the Spanish. This was what the Dutch has done when they played Brazil, Uruguay and the earlier games. They cannot afford to give the Spainish the space to manovoeuvre their art of passing game. This was what the Germans got punished. I was thinking before the game start, the Germans will play like when they beat England and Argentina. How true was my expectation? Now my expectation, of the Dutch, they will stick to their strategy of field dominance and go on to beat the confidence Spanish and the 36 years agony of losing their first final appearance to Germany will close its chapter. Also, at least my pain of seeing the English, my favourite team, losing to the Germans can heal a bit.

Lets wait for the game this Sunday (early Monday morning in Malaysia) and it is not for Paul the octopus to decide. It's just coincident, it's just coincident. Human beings tend to exaggerate when such things happened and relates it to psychic, supernatural etc., etc....

What To Do When Trap In A Lift?

A very informative email from Mr. Lim Chin Hong

What to do when you are trapped in a lift??

We never know when and where accidents will happen to us OR people around us. Read on and hope this piece of information may help any of us when things do happen to yourself, our friends and our loved ones.

One day, while in a lift, it suddenly broke down and it was falling from level 13 at a fast speed.

Fortunately, I remembered watching a TV program that taught you must quickly press all the buttons for all the levels.

Finally, the lift stopped at the 5th level.

When you are facing life and death situations, whatever decisions or actions you make decides your survival.

If you are caught in a lift breakdown, first thought in mind may be 'waiting to die'...

But after reading below, things will definitely be different the next time you are caught in a lift.

First - Quickly press all the different levels of buttons in the lift.
When the emergency electricity supply is being activated, it will stop the lift from falling further.

Second - Hold on tight to the handle (if there is any).. It is to support your position and prevent you from falling or getting hurt when you lost your balance.

Third - Lean your back and head against the wall forming a straight line.
Leaning against the wall is to use it as a support for your back/spine as protection.

Fourth - Bend your knees
Ligament is a flexible, connective tissue. Thus, the impact of fractured bones will be minimised during fall.

For everyone, kindly do share this piece of information with your near and dear ones !!

Campaigns To Keep Maths & Science in English

Parents Group Campaigns to Keep Maths, Science in English

By Asrul Hadi Abdullah Sani
July 03, 2010
Exerted from The Malaysian Insider:


KUALA LUMPUR, July 3 — The Parent Action Group for Education (Page) announced today that it has gone national to recruit more members to pressure the government to keep teaching mathematics and science in English (PPSMI).

It has also ironically linked up with Malay rights umbrella group Malay Consultative Council (MPM) and Perkasa to get the government to overturn its decision to revert the medium of instruction for both subjects to Bahasa Malaysia by 2012.

Page chairman Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim said it aims to be the voice of parents on national educational policies with its new status as a national society.

“We want Page to be the voice in the future not just on PPSMI but to go beyond PPSMI. Now that we have registered, we have decided to address national concerns. This will be the platform for parents to voice their concerns on education.

“For instance, now the hot topic is the abolishment of UPSR and PMR papers so we would like parents to tell us how they feel then we could prepare a roundtable discussion with the ministry of education,” she told reporters here after announcing its new status.

Page was formed after the government decided to abolish PPSMI in July last year. The group is now asking for the government to maintain the option for PPSMI alongside the choices to learn the two subjects in Bahasa Malaysia, Tamil and Mandarin.

Noor Azimah claims that Page has the support of Malay rights group Perkasa and MPM.
Page’s deputy chairman Sulaiman Mahran also voiced the group’s frustrations with the Education Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“The Prime Minister has said that he will give us a consideration but the one in power is the education minister and he doesn’t want to listen to us and has refused to listen to us right from the very beginning. We are hoping that we will able to get more parents and hope that the numbers will speak up,” he said.

Noor Azimah added that government may risk alienating the urban electorate if it continues to ignore the people’s concerns.

“It is not flip flopping if the government decides to allow the teaching of science and mathematics in English. It shows that the government is listening to the rakyat. This is very important for him (Tan Sri Muhyddin Yassin), it might just win him the urban votes.

“We are telling them that we want to vote for you but don’t make it difficult for us. They are desperate for ubran voters and this might just swing it,” she said.

Noor Azimah also claimed that Page has the support of Malay rights group Perkasa and MPM.

“We have approached Perkasa and MPM and they are with us. We have held a briefing with them and they have agreed to arrange a meeting with Gapena and Ungku Aziz. This will be a close door session meeting with them. We would just like to explain why we want PPSMI to be continued in schools that wants it,” she said.

She also confirmed that Page will be handing its second memorandum to Muhyiddin this Thursday.

“We didn’t get response from the first memorandum. The second memorandum, we will include the decision of the High Court on May 7 that PPSMI is not against the Federal Constitution and National language Act,” she said.
