  • At Kluang Umno meet, members threaten ‘aggressive’ action if Najib stays silent on 1MDB

    An Umno branch proposed a motion today during the party’s Kluang division meeting here, demanding that Datuk Seri Najib Razak answer the many allegations plaguing his leadership, particularly on the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal, the 2006 murder of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shaariibuu’s and the government’s controversial jet purchase, among others.

(60 kilograms), and at 18-feet, 3-inches (5.6 meters), was almost as long as the largest python ever captured in the state of Florida, which was 18-feet, 8-inches long (5.7 meters).

  • Man City hoping Sterling proves a sound investment

    By Martyn Herman LONDON (Reuters) - Demonised as a caricature of the highly-paid modern-day footballer whose ego dwarfs his talent, Raheem Sterling will have few fans when the Premier League begins next weekend. Unless, of course, you support Manchester City who made the 20-year-old forward the most expensive English player in history when they paid a fee of up to 49 million pounds ($76.31 million)to end his increasingly toxic relationship with Liverpool. City have been relatively restrained during the transfer window but the signing of Sterling, described by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers as the best young player in Europe, could prove to be a sound investment by Manuel Pellegrini.
