According to the statement of facts, police and officers from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had gone to see See at the Old Town White Coffee branch to investigate him under an offence related to Section 233 of the MCMC Act 1998 for distributing prohibited content.

During the investigation, the authorities seized the phone from See and found 55 obscene videos on the phone after a forensic analysis was conducted on the phone.

Heart attack leading cause of death in Malaysia

October 31, 2019 | Health | No Comments

KUALA LUMPUR – Heart attack remains the leading cause of death in Malaysia for the 14th year.

Ischaemic heart diseases, which occur when arteries of the heart cannot deliver enough oxygen-rich blood to the heart, continued to be the main cause of death in Malaysia last year with a total of 18,267 deaths or 15.6 per cent of total deaths from various causes, the latest Statistics on Causes of Death in Malaysia released by the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) revealed.

It was the principal cause of death for males in Malaysia with 12,510 deaths (17.8 per cent) while for females, the principal cause of death was pneumonia with 6,033 deaths (12.8 per cent), it said.

Last year, 172,031 total deaths from various causes were recorded, an increase of 2.3 per cent compared to 168,168 in 2017, it said.

“On average, 50 persons in Malaysia die of ischaemic heart diseases every day,” DOSM said in the statistics released yesterday.

According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute in the United States, the most common type of ischaemic heart diseases is coronary heart disease (also known as coronary artery disease).

It is caused by the build-up of plaque inside the coronary arteries. The build-up can partially or totally block blood flow in the large arteries of the heart.

The condition may be caused by disease or injury which affects how the arteries work in the heart.

Coronary microvascular disease is another type of ischaemic heart diseases which occurs when the heart’s tiny arteries do not function normally.

Risk factors include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, being physically inactive, overweight or obese, and family history.

DOSM said ischaemic heart diseases were the principal cause of death in 90 administrative districts in Malaysia and the highest percentage was recorded in Petaling, Selangor (16.3 per cent).

Urban areas recorded 12,101 cases, double that in rural areas (6,166 cases), it said.

Pneumonia was the principal cause of death in 48 administrative districts with the highest percentage recorded in Kota Setar, Kedah (17.8 per cent).

The number of deaths due to ischaemic heart diseases in Malaysia in 2010 was 9,371 and the figures increased gradually through the years.

The jump increased more prominently from 2016 to 2017 (13.9 per cent) and from 2017 to 2018 (15.6 per cent).

After ischaemic heart diseases, the second main cause of death last year was pneumonia (11.8 per cent), followed by cerebrovascular diseases (7.8 per cent), transport accidents (3.7 per cent) and chronic lower respiratory diseases (2.6 per cent).

On the main causes of death by age group, 4.8 per cent of those aged 0 to 14 died of pneumonia and 20.4 per cent of those aged 15 to 40 died in transport accidents.

The main cause of death among those above age 40 was ischaemic heart diseases: ages 41 to 59 (19.2 per cent) and ages 60 and above (16.6 per cent).

A man in eastern China cut off his finger after being bitten by a poisonous snake – only to be told that there was no need to take such a dramatic measure to save himself.

The 60-year-old farmer named Zhang was cutting firewood near his mountain village in the Shangyu district of Zhejiang province when he was bitten on the finger by the snake, Hangzhou Daily reported.

He identified it as a particularly feared type of viper known locally as the “five-step snake” because of the belief that victims will not be able to walk more than five paces before dying, and chopped off the finger to prevent the venom from spreading.

He then wrapped up his hand in a cloth and made the 80km journey to Hangzhou, the nearest large city, where he was able to receive treatment.

However, he left the amputated finger on the mountainside, which meant doctors would have no chance of successfully reattaching it.

Doctors at the Hangzhou Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine told the newspaper there was no need to have taken such a drastic step because the snake is less lethal than commonly believed, but said his reaction to being bitten was a common one.

Ren Jinping, a doctor at the hospital, told Zhejiang television that when Zhang arrived at the hospital, he did not display any symptoms such as a headache, breathing difficulties or bleeding from the gums.

Nevertheless, doctors gave him an anti-venom serum and cleaned the wound on his finger.

Zhang told the TV station this week that in April this year one of his neighbours had died after being bitten by a snake, however he said he is now recovering at home and his hand is recovering well.

Yuan Chengda, another doctor from the hospital, said it was a pity that Zhang would not be able to have the finger reattached.

“It’s not necessary at all [to cut it off]. The five-step snake is not that toxic,” Yuan told Hangzhou Daily.

The “five-step snake” is a species called Deinagkistrodon. While its venom can cause bleeding, pain and swelling, the belief that victims of bites will die within five paces is largely exaggerated.

Yuan continued that he often told his patients not to take such dramatic measures to save themselves after being bitten.

Since this year, the hospital has received 1,200 such patients, more than any other medical facility in Hangzhou. Doctors said before going to hospital, about 30 per cent of these patients had dealt with their injury in the wrong way.

“Some used knives to cut their fingers or toes, some used ropes or iron wires to bind the bitten limb tightly, and some even tried to destroy the poison in their body by burning their skin,” said Yuan. “When they arrive at the hospital, some people’s limbs are already showing signs of gangrene.”

Godam WhatsApp: Facebook saman firma Israel

October 30, 2019 | News | No Comments

GERGASI teknologi Facebook pada Selasa mengumumkan bahawa ia menyaman sebuah firma pengawasan dalam talian Israel, Kumpulan NSO, yang didakwa menggodam pengguna perkhidmatan mesej popularnya, WhatsApp, antara April dan Mei tahun ini, lapor agensi berita Turki Anadolu.

Dalam aduan setebal 15 muka surat yang dikemukakan di Mahkamah Daerah Amerika Syarikat di San Francisco, melalui salinan yang disiarkan oleh The Washington Post, Facebook menggariskan serangan penggodaman ke atas lebih 100 aktivis hak, pemberita, pegawai kerajaan, diplomat dan penentang politik.

Menurut Will Cathcart, ketua WhatsApp, Kumpulan NSO menggunakan kekurangan dalam aplikasi mesej itu untuk menggodam telefon dan menghantar perisian hasad ke peranti mudah alih sejumlah pengguna yang akan membolehkan pelanggannya secara rahsia mengintip pemilik peranti.

“Ini sepatutnya menjadi ‘wake-up call’ kepada syarikat teknologi, kerajaan dan semua pengguna Internet,” tulis Cathcart dalam The Washington Post.

“Peralatan yang membolehkan pengawasan dilakukan terhadap kehidupan peribadi kita disalah guna, dan percambahan teknologi ini di dalam tangan syarikat-syarikat dan kerajaan yang tidak bertanggungjawab menyebabkan kita semua berdepan risiko.”

Cathcart berkata, syarikat teknologi yang berpangkalan di Tel Aviv itu adalah “amat canggih” dalam melaksanakan penggodaman serta pintasan, namun penyiasat berjaya mengesan tindakan mereka dan “percubaan mereka untuk menutup jejak mereka tidak begitu membuahkan hasil.”

Dakwaan bahawa NSO menggunakan WhatsApp untuk menggodam telefon mencetuskan bantahan global dan kutukan yang meluas daripada kumpulan privasi dalam talian apabila ia didedahkan pada Mei.

Pada masa itu, NSO berkata ia akan menyiasat perkara itu.
