  • Malaysia prosecutor says right to clear 1MDB over central bank report

    Malaysia's attorney general said on Tuesday he was right to close an investigation by the country's central bank into troubled state-owned investor 1MDB, as there was no evidence the fund's officials had knowingly flouted the law. Last week Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) said it had urged attorney general Mohamed Apandi Ali to prosecute 1MDB, saying the fund had secured permits to remit $1.83 billion overseas based on inaccurate or incomplete disclosure of information, breaching domestic regulations. The central bank's statement raised the pressure on 1MDB, which is at the centre of a political crisis over its debt of nearly 42 billion ringgit ($10.05 billion) and alleged financial graft.

    (Reuters) - World number three and defending champion Roger Federer suffered a surprise defeat in the second round of the Shangahi Masters on Tuesday, losing 7-6(4) 2-6 6-3 to Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas. The Swiss, returning to action after a month off, looked rusty against the 70th-ranked qualifier and despite looking back on track when he cruised through the second set, he succumbed in the decider to a single break of serve. U.S. Open runner-up Federer, 34, banged down 15 aces and won more points than his opponent but a lack of sharpness at crucial moments sent him spinning to defeat. ...

  • Drinking Black Coffee Makes You a Psychopath?

    We all have our own favourite way, when it comes to drinking coffee. But did you ever consider you could be a psychopath because you drink your coffee black? Well, I didn’t either, but psychology researchers at the university of Innsbruck in Austria have figured out so much recently. After testing over 1000 people, a result of the study suggests that there is a strong link between the taste for bitter foods (including black coffee) and ‘malevolent personality traits’. Does it make you a psychopath? Probably not – however the link is interesting. The psychology researchers found out that people who favour bitter tastes, such as coffee, were likely to be vain, sadistic and enjoy manipulating and hurting others.
