  • Dr M: Zahid ‘suited’ to be deputy prime minister

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is as good a fit as “anybody else” for the post of deputy prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today. The former prime minister said Ahmad Zahid ― who replaced Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in a shock Cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday ― was deserving of the post by virtue of being the Umno vice-president with the highest votes at the party’s last internal polls. “He is not only suited as the deputy prime minister but also as the Home Minister,” he added.

  • Will it ever really be OK for a woman to go topless?

    In 1996, the Ontario Court of Appeal reversed the conviction of a woman named Gwen Jacobs who’d gone topless on a hot summer day, and since then, regardless of whether or not they’ve (we’ve?) exercised the right, women can totally take their tops off when out. Sadly, as of right now, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a woman who exercises her right to go topless without being subjected to shade and/or side-eye.

  • Kit Siang: Only Abdul Gani can clear the air on ‘leaked’ charge sheets on Najib

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, who was removed as Attorney-General (AG) earlier this week, is the only person who can say for certain if he was in the final stages of drafting a charge against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang said today. Lim said recent denials by the new AG, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, and the AG’s Chambers of claims that his predecessor was preparing to charge Najib were “grossly inadequate”. “Let Gani appear in public to explain whether there is any basis in the Sarawak Report exclusive about the purported charge sheet against the prime minister for corruption as Gani is still in the legal and judicial service,” Lim said at a news conference here.

  • China, Southeast Asia to set up hotline for South China Sea issues

    China and Southeast Asian nations have agreed to set up a foreign ministers' hotline to tackle emergencies in the disputed South China Sea, a senior official of the ASEAN grouping told Reuters on Friday. China claims most of the potentially energy-rich sea, through which $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year, and rejects the rival claims of Vietnam, the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Taiwan. With the region having become Asia's biggest potential military flashpoint, the United States has urged claimants to settle differences through talks, saying its Pacific Fleet aims to protect sea lanes critical to U.S. trade.

  • Hopes high wing flap will shed light on Flight 370 mystery

    SAINT-ANDRE, Reunion (AP) — Under a microscope and expert eyes, the wing fragment that washed up on the beach of this volcanic island could yield clues not just to its path through the Indian Ocean, but also to what happened to the airplane it belonged to. Analysts at the French aviation laboratory where the scrap was headed Friday can glean details from metal stress to see what caused the flap to break off, spot explosive or other chemical traces, and study the sea life that made its home on the wing to pinpoint where it came from. If the fragment is indeed part of the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, it means the wreckage may have drifted thousands of kilometers (miles) across the Indian Ocean to this French island off the east coast of Africa.
