Bayi maut jatuh katil

December 16, 2019 | News | No Comments

BAYI perempuan lapan bulan maut akibat lemas selepas terjatuh dari katil dan termasuk ke dalam bakul sampah di rumah pengasuhnya di Taman Pasir Pinji di Ipoh, kelmarin.

Bayi berkenaan disedari terjatuh dari katil pada 6.15 petang pengasuhnya yang berusia 24 tahun di dalam bilik dengan kepala berada di dalam tong sampah yang berada di tepi katil.

Ketua Polis Daerah Ipoh, Asisten Komisioner A Asmadi Abdul Aziz berkata, polis menerima laporan mengenai kematian bayi berkenaan pada 8 malam hari kejadian daripada sebuah hospital swasta.

Menurutnya, siasatan awal mendapati bayi berkenaan dihantar oleh bapanya sejak berusia 30 hari dan dijaga oleh dua beranak berusia 45 dan 24 tahun.

“Kedua-dua pengasuh wanita itu tidak mengenali siapa ibu bayi berkenaan dan hanya bapa bayi sahaja yang melawat mangsa sepanjang tinggal bersama pengasuh terbabit iaitu lebih kurang empat kali sebulan.

“Pengasuhnya yang berusia 45 tahun bekerja pada hari kejadian dan sepanjang dia pertama bekerja, bayi berkenaan dijaga oleh anak perempuannya yang berusia 24 tahun,” katanya ketika dihubungi, hari ini.

Menurutnya, siasatan awal mendapati mangsa baru pandai merangkak dan pada hari kejadian pengasuhnya yang berusia 24 tahun itu menidurkannya di atas katil dalam bilik dengan meletakkan bantal sebagai benteng.

“Bayi itu ditinggalkan tidur di atas katil dengan dikelilingi bantal tinggi pada 5 petang dan 30 minit kemudian pengasuhnya ada menjenguk di bilik dan dapati mangsa masih tidur dalam keadaan baik.

“Kali kedua pada 6.15 petang, pengasuhnya ada menjenguk lagi di dalam bilik yang sama dan dapati mangsa jatuh di bawah di mana kepala berada di dalam tong sampah yang berada di tepi katil di mana tiada sebarang bunyi menangis sebelum kejadian berlaku,” katanya.

A Asmadi berkata, semasa kejadian hanya pengasuhnya itu sahaja berada di rumah.

“Hasil pemeriksaan bedah siasat dapati sebab kematian adalah kerana ‘asphyxza’ iaitu kelemasan.

“Bayi itu tertonggeng masuk ke dalam tong sampah dan darah terkumpul di paru-paru menyebabkan jantung tidak dapat berfungsi,” katanya.

Menurutnya, pemeriksaan juga tidak menemui sebarang kesan penderaan atau kesan lain pada tubuh mangsa.

“Kes disiasat mengikut Seksyen 31(1) Akta Kanak-Kanak 2001 dan pengasuhnya kini ditahan bagi membantu siasatan,” katanya.

Police in eastern China have detained five people on suspicion of carrying out a scam that aimed to convince people to part with their money in return for a share of trillions of US dollars that have been frozen since the defeated Nationalist forces fled the mainland at the end of the civil war.

Officers found fake army uniforms and a number of forged documents when they detained the three women and two men at a hotel in Shandong province last week, the Yimeng Evening News reported.

The gang is accused of promising investors a share from a fund worth trillions of US dollars that they said had been established by the Nationalists 70 years ago and claimed they were working for special task forces established by the UN and China’s Central Military Commission to unlock the assets.

The faked documents were said to include United Nations permits and even a gun licence issued by the last imperial dynasty, the Qing.

The report said the five had confessed they were members of a ring known as the International Plum Blossom, which has been operating similar scams for a decade.

They were placed under criminal detention after they were questioned by police while eating at a hotel in Linyi city.

Police say the man then phoned someone he described as the “top leading comrade” and warned that the policemen could be suspended for carrying out further checks.

This failed to deter the officers, who took the group to the police station for further questioning.

When they searched their bags, police say they found a variety of documents including fake deposits from Citibank and HSBC worth several trillion US dollars and an order from the Kuomintang government to transfer the money to Taiwan, where the Nationalists fled in 1949 after being defeated.

Teng reportedly confessed that the documents were used to convince people – particularly the elderly – to invest in a crowdfunding project to unlock the money. Would-be investors were offered up to 10 per cent of the total funds.

The scam was included in a warning list of 100 frauds the Ministry of Public Security published earlier this year.

It is not known how many people have fallen victim to it over the years, but it has been going on for at least 40 years, according to a report published on Fujian province’s official news portal.

The report highlighted the 2010 case of a man who had invested more than 700,000 yuan (just over S$135,000 in today’s money) over 30 years in the hope of getting a share of the KMT funds.

In the study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology, they studied 467 makeup products that had been used before. These were donated after use and include lipsticks, lip-glosses, eyeliners, mascaras and beauty blenders. The results from the study show that the researchers found harmful bacteria like E.coli, staphylococcus and fungus.

These dirty beauty products can cause sicknesses such as skin infections and blood poisoning if they are used near eyes, mouth or cuts or grazes. Beauty blenders were found to be the dirtiest of all the products, as 92% of them had germs while 72% contained staphylococcus with high levels of antibiotic resistance, 25% carried E.coli and 57% had fungi.

Be honest, how many of us clean our makeup products properly after use? Researchers surmise that users rarely clean their cosmetics after use, which causes them to be infested with superbugs. In fact, 93% of beauty blenders had never been cleaned even though 64% of them had dropped on the floor before. Beauty blenders are also damp after use, which makes the sponges ideal for germs and bacteria to grow.

Meanwhile, the scientists found that 69% of mascaras and 7% of eyeliners are infested with staphylococcus bacteria, 37% of lipsticks and 28% of eyeliners tested contained fungi, while 10% of lipsticks and lipglosses were found to contain E.coli.

These findings are worrying, as many users do not know that using these dirty cosmetics means that they are putting themselves at risk, especially those who have immunocompromised systems. This also means that it is not safe to use beauty store makeup testers as it is easy for people to pick up an infection.

Testers are usually not regularly cleaned and exposed, with many people using and trying on the product. Hence, the researchers advise the public to always wash their makeup tools, avoid sharing cosmetics and be careful when using makeup testers in shops and throw away any expired makeup products.

Now that you know, make sure to check your makeup okay!

KAMPAR, Malaysia – A mother and her five-year-old daughter were killed in a six-vehicle pile-up at km294, on the northbound lane of the North-South Expressway, near here.

Kampar OCPD Supt Hasron Nazri Hashim said teacher Ummu Maisarah Kamaludin, 33, from Petaling Jaya, died on the spot in the 7.10am incident on Monday (Dec 9).

Her daughter, Syaima Muhamad Hisyam, died at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital.

Supt Hasron said Ummu Maisarah’s 35-year-old husband, Syariah court judge Muhamad Hisyam Zakaria and two of their other daughters, Syifa, nine and Syurafa, two, were unharmed.

“The post-mortem conducted on Ummu Maisarah at the Kampar Hospital showed that she died due to severe head injuries.

“Syaima died from head and chest injuries,” he said.

Supt Hasron said the Muhamad Hisyam, who was driving, was unable to stop in time and slammed into the back of a Honda Civic, which had stopped on the road with three other vehicles due to an earlier accident.

“The earlier accident had involved a trailer and a Perodua Myvi, causing the right lane of the road to be blocked.

“After Muhamad Hisyam crashed his car into the Civic, the impact caused the subsequent vehicles to lunge forward and crash into one another,” he said.

“The 28-year-old driver of the Civic, from Seri Kembangan, suffered head injuries and was treated at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital,” he added.

On the earlier accident, Supt Hasron said the 29-year-old driver of the Myvi, from Kampung Kurung Tengar, Kuala Perlis, suffered a broken right arm.

He said the man is being treated at the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital while the other drivers were unharmed.

“Based on initial investigation, the Myvi’s driver had crashed his car into the back of the trailer.

“The impact sent his car spinning before stopping on the right lane,” he said.

Supt Hasron said the case would be investigated under Section 41 (1) of the Road Transport Act for reckless driving, causing death.

He added that no arrest was made and the investigation is still ongoing.

Perkukuh bekalan elektrik Pulau Langkawi

December 10, 2019 | News | No Comments

TENAGA Nasional Bhd (TNB) mempertingkatkan bekalan elektrik di Pulau Langkawi menerusi pemasangan kabel dasar laut sepanjang 26.5 kilometer (km).

Ketua Pegawai Grid TNB Datuk Ir Husaini Husin berkata, pemasangan kabel daripada tenaga Grid Nasional ke pulau itu bertujuan menjamin bekalan dan keperluan elektrik.

Katanya, ia juga sempena Tahun Melawat Malaysia 2020 dan mesyuarat Persidangan Kerjasama Ekonomi Asia Pasifik 2020 (APEC 2020) .

“Perentangan kabel dijangka dapat membantu persiapan Pulau Langkawi untuk menerima empat juta pelancong sempena Tahun Melawat Malaysia 2020, selain menjadi satu daripada lokasi mesyuarat APEC.

“Sistem elektrik di Pulau Langkawi yang kini dikawal sepenuhnya secara automasi. Usaha merentang kabel dasar laut 132 kilovolt (kV) ini adalah sebahagian daripada perbelanjaan modal TNB untuk mengukuhkan infrastruktur elektrik negara,” katanya dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Katanya, kerja merentang kabel dasar laut menghubungkan Pencawang Masuk Utama (PMU) Kuala Perlis dengan PMU Teluk Apau di Pulau Langkawi bermula Oktober lalu dan dijangka siap hujung tahun ini.

Husaini berkata, projek itu dapat mengukuhkan daya harap, kualiti, kestabilan dan kecekapan pembekalan elektrik ke Pulau Langkawi yang ketika ini mendapat bekalan dari Grid Nasional menerusi dua lagi kabel dasar laut sedia ada.

Menurutnya, kabel dasar laut yang sedang direntang itu menggunakan teknologi terkini iaitu ‘cross-linked polyethylene’ berbanding ‘oil-filled cable’ yang digunakan sebelum ini.

“Bermula awal tahun lalu, sistem bekalan elektrik di Pulau Langkawi dikawal secara automasi sepenuhnya melalui Kawalan Penyeliaan dan Permolehan Data Berkomputer (SCADA) yang menghubungkan semua 404 pencawang di pulau peranginan itu.

“Automasi ini akan membantu mempercepatkan masa pemulihan bekalan elektrik sekiranya berlaku kerosakan sistem TNB,” katanya.
