Solberg: I have good feeling with new car already.
Fri 23 May, 10:18 AM

Petter and Atkinson excited ahead of first event with Impreza WRC2008.

Subaru World Rally Team duo Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson have both been given a boost ahead of the Acropolis Rally next weekend, following confirmation that the squad will switch to using the all-new Impreza WRC2008.

Petter has had a torrid time in recent events and the Norwegian hasn’t scored now since the Uddeholm Swedish Rally back in February, the second round in the World Rally Championship.

Having taken nil points from Mexico, Argentina, Jordan and Sardinia, ‘Hollywood’ will need a good result in Greece to kick-start his season and give his confidence a well needed lift.

While the Acropolis won’t be an easy event for the new car, the 2003 World Rally champion is already feeling positive about the machine, even though he has only had limited testing in it.

“We finished third here last year and this time we have the new car, so I’ll be really pushing for a strong result,” Petter vowed.

“It’s a very difficult event; very rocky and hot, and the stages have always been very rough so it’s hard on us and the cars.

“We’ve had a few days in the new car now, so I have a good feeling from it and really hope that we’ll be in a good position to fight at the front. I’ll be at 110 per cent, definitely.”

Chris Atkinson meanwhile has had a far more positive year thus far, with four podium finishes already under his belt. Sardinia however was also a disappointing event for the Aussie and while he scored and finished sixth, he was way, way, way off the pace in the 2007 spec car.

Like his team-mate, he is delighted that he will now get his hands on the redesigned car and he is hoping to be a lot closer to the likes of Sebastien Loeb, Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala.

“It’s the first time out in a new car so it’s very exciting but you’re always a little cautious! If the feeling’s good I’ll be pushing straight away,” he promised. “There’s no reason not to, and obviously I’m looking forward to the opportunity to see where we are with the car.

“We know it’s going to be a very tough event as there are so many variables, so it won’t be easy but I hope we can take another step in the right direction and start to close up to the frontrunners.”

Pulau batu putih (pedra branca) diberikan hak kepada Singapura
Middle Rocks diberkan hak kepada Malaysia
South ledge hendaklah dibuat persempadanan baru selepas perundingan teknikal diantara kedua dua belah pihak dan kemungkinan termasuk Indonesia.

Update:

Ini satu berita yang memang dijangka mungkin kerana sikap Negara Malaysia selama ini seperti mana yang dihujahkan oleh hakim ICJ :

5.5. Conclusion

273. The question to which the Court must now respond is whether in the light of the principles and rules of international law it stated earlier and of the assessment it has undertaken of the relevant facts, particularly the conduct of the Parties, sovereignty over Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh passed to the United Kingdom or Singapore. – 75 –

274. The conduct of the United Kingdom and Singapore was, in many respects, conduct as operator of Horsburgh lighthouse, but that was not the case in all respects. Without being exhaustive, the Court recalls their investigation of marine accidents, their control over visits, Singapore’s installation of naval communication equipment and its reclamation plans, all of which include acts à titre de souverain, the bulk of them after 1953. Malaysia and its predecessors did not respond in any way to that conduct, or the other conduct with that character identified earlier in this Judgment, of all of which (but for the installation of the naval communication equipment) it had notice.

275. Further, the Johor authorities and their successors took no action at all on Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh from June 1850 for the whole of the following century or more. And, when official visits (in the 1970s for instance) were made, they were subject to express Singapore permission. Malaysia’s official maps of the 1960s and 1970s also indicate an appreciation by it that Singapore had sovereignty. Those maps, like the conduct of both Parties which the Court has briefly recalled, are fully consistent with the final matter the Court recalls. It is the clearly stated position of the Acting Secretary of the State of Johor in 1953 that Johor did not claim ownership of Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh. That statement has major significance.

276. The Court is of the opinion that the relevant facts, including the conduct of the Parties, previously reviewed and summarized in the two preceding paragraphs, reflect a convergent evolution of the positions of the Parties regarding title to Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh. The Court concludes, especially by reference to the conduct of Singapore and its predecessors à titre de souverain, taken together with the conduct of Malaysia and its predecessors including their failure to respond to the conduct of Singapore and its predecessors, that by 1980 sovereignty over Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh had passed to Singapore.

277. For the foregoing reasons, the Court concludes that sovereignty over Pedra Branca/Pulau Batu Puteh belongs to Singapore.

Macam pepatah melayu berkata, dah terantuk baru nak tergadah… lesson learned Malaysia.

Semua orang dah tahu cerita TM keluar dari UMNO tetapi tak semua orang tahu kenapa TM keluar dari UMNO. Mungkinkah Tun tidak lagi rasa seperti seorang ahli UMNO? tetapi inilah realiti selama ini. Tiada apa yang dapat dibanggakan sebagai seorang ahli UMNO.

Tanyalah wakil wakil rakyat UMNO anda, apakah kelebihan menjadi ahli UMNO? Adakah ketua ketua UMNO akan dengar segala masalah rakyat yang disampaikan melalui seorang ahli UMNO (tiada jawatan)? Adakah ketua ketua UMNO kawasan atau wakil wakil rakyat UMNO mahu melayan seorang ahli UMNO biasa? Jawapanya, TIDAK SAMA SEKALI. Begitulah realiti UMNO sekarang, tiada lagi akar umbi, tiada lagi berjumpa rakyat, tiada lagi semangat bantu membantu.

Tepuk dada tanya selera, inilah kebenaran UMNO yang saya kenali. Saya tidak pernah kenal UMNO yang membantu rakyat tak mengira bangsa, agama apatah lagi parti politik. Saya pernah belajar bagaimana UMNO ditubuhkan dalam buku teks sejarah, tapi semangat rakyat dalam UMNO setahu saya telah lama luput.

UMNO yang saya kenali hanyalah satu parti politik yang melaungkan semangat ketuanan melayu, semangat bangsa tetapi hanya membantu segelintir kenalan atau orang orang mereka sahaja tetapi tidak akan membantu sama sekali sesiapa yang tak berkepentingan.

Kepada Tun Mahathir, selamat datang ke realiti politik UMNO. Kepada wakil wakil rakyat UMNO, sedarlah yang hidup ini umpama roda, ada masa diatas dan ada masa dibawah.

Mungkin apa yang saya tulis disini tiada kaitan dengan keluarnya AHLI PERTAMA UMNO (Tun Mahathir) tetapi lebih kepada realiti menjadi seorang ahli UMNO. Saya rasa inilah sebab utama TM keluar dari UMNO kerana dia tahu, seorang ahli UMNO pada hakikatnya dilayan oleh ketua ketua UMNO seperti buih buih di ombak, banyak tapi tiada gunanya kecuali ketika setiap pilihanraya.

I just want to start my own gossip here, mind you all, all the picture here are just my own interpretation of the upcoming Perodua and Proton MPV. Perodua MPV (No more fish name I presumed)

  1. Most probably based on TOYOTA upcoming C-Segment MPV (Long wheelbase of our Altis) – middle of 2009
  2. Most probably based on TOYOTA Verso 2007 (redesign grill, redesign bumper, stick on the perodua batch wallaaaahh..)
  3. Most probably be running Avanza / Terios / Rush engine (1.3 and 1.5 Litre)

I would say, the MPV would be based on the current Verso (pictures below) model as perodua always take TOYOTA / Daihatsu old model for rebadged.

Toyota Verso (2007)

New Verso / Auris MPV (2009 Model)

Pic from http://www.worldcarfans.com/9080430.014/toyota-auris-verso-spied

But I would doubt Perodua can sell new car as Perodua as this while was selling the older model than Toyota just like the case with Myvi, Viva, Terios as it is actually older model or been in the market for years before produa rebadged it.

 

Proton MPV (No relation with Proton Juara)

  1. Most probably based on extended Waja platform / Chanselor / Cherry V5 Crossover
  2. Most probably be running 1.6CPS engine on base model and Perdana’s V6 2.0 engine as higher option
  3. Full fledge MPV (High roof, better legroom & better 3rd row seat space)

Cherry V5 Crossover

Proton Model / Prototype

I will update this page as more news surface, but until then, let’s all just imagine

New sketches from Paul Tan website. Most probably new MPV from Proton.

THE Selangor state government will study a proposal to make it mandatory for all high-rise residential homes to switch from bulk meters to individual meters soon.

State exco member for housing and building maintenance Iskandar Abdul Samad said another proposal being considered is to have Syabas take over the maintenance and billing for water supply at flats, apartments and condominiums.

Iskandar, who is also Chempaka assemblyman, said this during a dialogue session on migration from bulk meters to individual meters with residents of Pandan Indah and Syabas at Dewan MPAJ in Ampang on Saturday.

He said there were many complaints pertaining to water charges for high-rise dwellers and that the matter would be discussed at the state exco meeting.

“Many people are hoping to change from using bulk meters since the announcement of the 20 cubic metres of free water in Selangor.

“If apartment units can have individual electric meters, I don’t see why the same cannot be done for water supply. It appears that management corporations, which are mostly owned by the respective developers, are keen on sticking to bulk meters to enable them to make extra money, ” Iskandar said.

At the dialogue session, residents said some of the conditions imposed by Syabas for migration from bulk to individual meters such as getting 100% approval from all owners was not only impossible to achieve but also unreasonable.

Noor Chazali Hashim from Taman Putra Perdana came to the session with the hope of getting some answers to his application to switch from bulk to individual meter which was submitted in October last year.

“There were 150 owners who submitted their applications through our management corporation. But we have yet to receive any news from Syabas,” he said.

A Syabas official said the company had not received such applications and suggested that Chazali resubmit the application via the residents association.

According to the official, meter migration can only take place if the meters can be modified, accessed and cleaned.

The residents would also have to pay all outstanding balance before the migration is made.

Currently, the residents using bulk meters are charged RM1.38 per cubic metre. For those residing at landed property, the charge starts at 57 sen per cubic metre
