• ‘White people’ should stay out of Malaysia’s affairs, Najib says

    In a fiery speech today to Seremban Umno delegates, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak told foreigners to stay out of Malaysia’s administrative affairs, saying they “white people” should not play any role in determining the country’s future. As an example, the Umno president singled out Sarawak Report, the London-based whistleblower site founded and operated by journalist Clare Rewcastle-Brown. The site has been running a series of exposés on the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) controversy, and has even linked Najib to the scandal.

  • MH370 search: Chinese and Indonesian items washed ashore on Reunion

    A Chinese water bottle and an Indonesian cleaning product have washed up on Reunion Island, where debris that could be from MH370 was found this week. Experts are preparing to analyse the piece of aircraft, which could be part of a wing from the Malaysia Airlines flight that vanished last year. Malaysian officials are confident the piece is from MH370, as a police helicopter searches the remote Indian Ocean island for more debris.

  • Man describes find that could solve MH370 plane mystery

    SAINT-ANDRE, Reunion (AP) — Johnny Begue was out collecting stones on the French Indian Ocean island he calls home when he says he saw part of an airplane wing washed up in the sand. The fragment may be the first clue to what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared last year with 293 people aboard. Massive search efforts have failed to find any sign of the plane, and authorities are analyzing the piece to see if it matches the missing plane.

  • Umno destined for ruins if members all ‘yes men’, ousted Shafie says

    Umno will face destruction if its members fear to speak the truth and choose only to be “yes men” to ensure their own political survival, vice-president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal said today in an apparent swipe at party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak. Speaking at an Umno divisional meeting here, days after his own criticism of Najib saw him axed from the federal Cabinet, the former minister suggested that Umno had steered off course in its fight to elevate the economic status of the Malays. The Sabah Umno leader also insisted that his criticism of Najib was only done out of love for a party he has stood by for more than 30 years, which he said is now weighed down by a massive leadership crisis.

  • Liverpool face devilish start to new season

    By Toby Davis LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could find himself under pressure sooner than expected with a host of new signings to bed in and a devilish run of fixtures to kick off the new Premier League campaign. There were rumblings of discontent among supporters after the club finished last season in abject fashion with an embarrassing 6-1 defeat at Stoke City to end a dismal streak that dropped them out of Champions League contention. Rodgers came under heavy fire from a disgruntled fanbase, who questioned his credentials following a third trophyless season at the helm, but he lived to fight another day after an end-of-season review by the club's American owners.

  • China steps up campaign to remove church crosses

    Authorities in Wenzhou, known as China's Jerusalem, have given Christian churches a deadline to remove prominent crosses within weeks, worshippers and an activist group said Thursday, stepping up a long-running campaign. The eastern province of Zhejiang, where Wenzhou is located, earlier this year proposed rules requiring crosses for Catholic and Protestant churches to be attached to the front of the building, rather than on the roof. The move came after Wenzhou authorities last year demolished the large Sanjiang Church, following government claims it was an illegal structure.

  • Tracing back debris to find Flight 370 may prove impossible

    If it's confirmed that a wing fragment found on a remote island in the Indian Ocean is from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, lost more than 500 days ago, could scientists use their knowledge of ocean currents to trace back its path and pinpoint the bulk of the wreck? Australian oceanographer David Griffin says that would be akin to using modeling of big-city crowd flows to try to predict the travels of a random person encountered on the street. While Griffin and other oceanographers say the discovery on the island of Reunion fits in with their large-scale modeling of how debris drifts across the Indian Ocean, there remain a mind-boggling number of variables in the journey of any single piece of flotsam.

  • 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.

  • Lexus' New Hoverboard Is Cool, But Will It Fly?

    Last month, Japanese auto manufacturer Lexus unveiled its newest product, and it's not another luxury SUV. The video shows the sleek board floating over what appears to be regular cement in a skateboard park, leading some hoverboard enthusiasts to speculate that, at long last, someone has produced a flying skateboard that you can actually ride in a halfpipe or down a sidewalk. But, if you thought Lexus' new toy would turn you into Marty McFly from "Back to the Future Part II" (the one with the epic hoverboard chase scene), think again.

  • Dr M: Crime to even talk about 1MDB

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today declined to field questions on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), pointedly saying that discussing the controversial firm could land the speaker in jail. Among the casualties were Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who was replaced as deputy prime minister in a Cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday following an outburst over 1MDB last weekend. Dr Mahathir today also said he has viewed a leaked video of Muhyiddin claiming that Najib admitted to receiving US$700 million (RM2.6 billion) in his personal accounts, but similarly said he could not comment on the matter without inviting the authorities attention.
