Acoustic Kitty was a CIA project launched by the Directorate of Science & Technology in the 1960s attempting to use cats in spy missions. ue to problems with distraction, the cat's sense of hunger had to be addressed in another operation. Surgical and training expenses are thought to have amounted to over $20 million.

The project took a group of specially trained cats and surgically implanted microphones, antennae and batteries into their tails, and then set them loose near the Russian embassy. The idea was that an unassuming cat would be able to stride right up to groups of communist officials and listen in on their conversation, which it could then beam back to agents with its sophisticated radio equipment.

The plan was eventually put into action, but the first cat sent into the field was supposedly run over by a taxi before it could make a recording, and operation ‘Acoustic Kitty” was abandoned shortly thereafter.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the third film in the Transformers film series, directed by Michael Bay and produced by Steven Spielberg. It is the sequel to Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and is scheduled for release on July 1, 2011 in Real D 3D and IMAX 3D.

Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, John Turturro and Ramón Rodríguez are set to reprise their starring roles, with Peter Cullen returning as the voice of Optimus Prime, and Hugo Weaving also returning the voice of Megatron. Ehren Kruger, who collaborated in the writing of the second film, was said to be again involved in the writing. Despite having initially been confirmed for the film, and with the film already into principal photography, it was announced that Megan Fox would not be reprising her role from the previous two films. With Fox’s character Mikaela being dropped, Sam was assigned a new love interest, who will be played by English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Also, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, having written the first two films, will not return for the third installment in the series, which Orci had earlier somewhat anticipated, fearing the duo would “risk getting stale”. Bay has stated that this will be the last installment in the series.

The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, are back in action, taking on the evil Decepticons, who are determined to avenge their defeat in 2009’s Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. In this new movie, the Autobots and Decepticons become involved in a perilous space race between the U.S. and Russia, and once again human Sam Witwicky has to come to the aid of his robot friends. There’s new characters too, including a new villain in the form of Shockwave, a longtime “Transformers” character who rules Cybertron while the Autobots and Decepticons battle it out on Earth.

Kuwait Finance House (Malaysia) Bhd (KFHMB) has launched a personal financing product to facilitate Muslim customers make pilgrimages to the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah.

“We would like to make it more convenient for Muslims to realise their dream of visiting the House of Allah, and fulfilling the fifth pillar of Islam. “The initiative is also in line with the bank’s role as a socially-responsible corporate organisation and in helping the Ummah,” KFHMB Chief Executive Officer Jamelah Jamaluddin said in a statement today.
The KFH Personal Financing-i Hajj and Umrah reinforces the bank’s commitment as a provider and innovator of financial products that uphold Shariah principles. It will collaborate with reputable partners to enable customers and their immediate family members perform their pilgrimages at reasonable prices

TSOK : Mesti ramai pernah mendengar iklan di radio berkaitan ini. Cuma, adakah ia adalah sesuatu yang benar-benar mangikut suruhan atau sunnah Nabi Muhammad SAW? Sebagai sebuah bank berlandaskan Islam, aku percaya mereka pastinya lebih memahaminya. Aku mengharapkan, Research Department KFH ini sudah membuat rujukan secara terperinci denagn merujuk kepada para ulama promosi ini. Jangan kerana keuntungan, mereka sanggup lari dari prinsip perbankan Islam mereka

Adakah seseorang dituntut untuk meminjam semata-mata untuk tujuan Haji dan Umrah? Apatah lagi pembiayaan dari Institusi Kewangan yang akan menyebabkan kos yang lebih tinggi dari harga asal kos haji.

Jawab ringkasnya TIDAK. Itulah jawapan ringkas yang diberikan oleh Nabi SAW apabila ditanya oleh seorang sahabatnya Abdullah Bin Abi Awfa,

سألته عن الرجل لم يحج أيستقرض للحج ؟ قال : لا
Ertinya : Berkata Abdullah : Aku bertanya kepada Nabi s.a.w berkenaan seorang lelaki yang belum menunaikan Haji, adakah boleh ia meminjam wang untuk Haji? , jawab Nabi : TIDAK"
-Musnad As-Syafie

Islam tidak memberatkan seseorang untuk menunaikan haji dan umrah kecuali kepada mereka yang benar-benar sudah sampai kemampuan dan bukan kemampuan yang dipaksa-paksa sebelum tiba saatnya. Imam Ibn Qudamah menjelaskan bahawa para ulama hampir sepakat menyatakan bahawa belanja bekalan itu mestilah :-

أن يكون هذا فاضلا عما يحتاج إليه لنفقة عياله الذين تلزمه مئونتهم في مضيه ورجوعه لأن النفقة تتعلق بها حقوق الآدميين , وهم أحوج وحقهم آكد...وأن يكون فاضلا عن قضاء دينه
Ertinya : Dan hendaklah (bekalan ini) adalah harta yang lebih dari apa yang wajib ke atas tanggungjawabnya dari nafqah keluarga yang wajib disediakannya semasa pergi dan kembalinya, ini adalah kerana nafqah berkait dengan hak manusia, dan ia adalah lebih perlu dan diutamakan ( dalam hal ini dari Haji yang merupakan Hak Allah semata-mata),...selain itu mestilah bekalan ia dari harta yang lebih dari mencukupi untuk melunaskan hutangnya.
- Al-Mughni, Ibn Qudamah

Tanpa penilaian yang tepat, seseorang itu mungkin sahaja pergi haji dengan dosa kerana mengabaikan hak individu lain yang lebih berhak ditunai segera.Sebagaimana berdosanya seorang isteri yang berpuasa sunat tanpa izin suami. Banyak lagi surah-surah dan hadith-hadith beerkaitan perkara ini boleh dirujuk. Perlu diingat beribadat itu tidak menghendaki kepada menyusahkan diri sendiri atau orang lain

Oleh itu, tidak dituntut dalam Islam menunaikan ibadat haji dengan berhutang, kerana pada dasarnya orang yang berhutang dan orang yang mempunyai hutang dianggap sebagai orang yang belum mempunyai kemampuan (istitha‘ah) untuk mengerjakan haji.

A Priceless Wedding Invitation From the Mother of the Groom
Will you attend?

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs.... who arranged a running competition. The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower. A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants.

The race began.

Honestly, no one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower. You heard statements such as:

"Oh, WAY too difficult!!"
"They will NEVER make it to the top."
"Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"

The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one. Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher.

The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!"

More tiny frogs got tired and gave up. But ONE continued higher and higher and higher. This one wouldn't give up! At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

Then all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it? A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal? It turned out.

That the winner was DEAF!!!!

TSOK : Everything you hear and read will affect your actions

The eye was not made to be constantly focused on close objects. If your work requires that you stare at a computer screen all day long or if you watch a lot of television, stop from time to time to do a few eye exercises.

For example, roll your eyes in large circles in both directions; look over to each side as far as possible and then go from up to down; or scan an imaginary text on the wall from left to right; or look out the window as far as you can following the horizon then return to a point right in front of you and begin again.

In this way, you will avoid long term eye problems, you will enlarge your inner space, and relax both your eyes and your mind.

Yeay, tahniah Malaysia di atas kejayaan membawa pulang Piala AFF Suzuki 2010 selepas menang dengan aggregate 2-4 menumpaskan Indonesia walaupun tewas di tempat lawan dengan jaringan 2-1

Dan, setnggi penghargaan kepada PM Malaysia, kerana mengumumkan besok adalah cuti umum kepada semua penduduk Malaysia. Semestinya aku sendiri sudah menjangkakannya, sebab itulah aku mula menyokong Malaysia setelah mereka layak ke perlawanan akhir. Seriously, aku kali terakhir menyokong Malaysia ketika zaman Azman Adnan, Shahrin Majid and Co.

Aku tidak perlu mengulas dengan panjang lebar berkaitan perlawan, laser dan sebagainya kerana cerita tersebut banyak terpampang di dada-dada akhbar, blog, forum, website etc. Cuma aku nak menyentuh dua perkara menarik perhatian aku.
Remember Not Only To Say The Right Thing In The Right Place,
But Far More Difficuilt Still, To Leave Unsaid The Wrong Thing At The Tempting Moment

Malam ini akan berlangsungnya perlawanan akhir ke-2 Piala AFF Suzuki 2010 di Stadium di Jakarta, Indonesia. Malaysia yang menang 3-0 pada perlawanan pertama dijangka berdepan cabaran 'sukar' apabila dijangka akan diganggu oleh pancaran laser dari penonton Indonesia sebagai membalas pancaran laser yang didakwa di pancarkan oleh penyokong Malaysia pada perlawanan pertama di Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur minggu lalu.

Namun, penyokong Malaysia yang kreatif semestinya sudah mempunyai strategi berkesan bagi menghadapi cabaran ini tanpa mengganggu rentak permainan mereka dan sekaligus mengekalkan kelebihan 3-0 itu dan bergelar juara baru Piala AFF Suzuki 2010.

Dibawah adalah strategi yang telah dirancang oleh warga Malaysia yang kreatif..

Gambar dibawah diambil dari Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2010 bulan lepas (bukan diambil oleh aku). Yang agak menarik perhatian aku adalah nama proton 'mesra alam' yang diperkenalkan oleh proton nih. Inilah sebenarnya jawapan bagi model-model terdahulu iaitu Wira, Satria, Waja.. inilah dia nama yang tidak asing lagi di Nusantara ini.. mereka inilah wira, satria, waja etc yg sebenar.. lalala

Dan wanita melayu yang berdiri di sebelah kereta-kereta proton lima bersaudara ini bukanlah Puteri Gunung Ledang ke, Tun Teja ke etc.

1. Female fans will not be bullied into covering up
Presiden FIFA sendiri menekankan bahawa peminat wanita sekrang ini adalah sangat tinggi dan perlu diutamakan. Qatar tidak mempedulikan tuduhan yang melabelkan Qatar sebagai sebuah negara yang mempunyai kadar diskriminasi dan keganasan wanita yang sangat tinggi dengan tidak menafikan atau mengiyakan tuduhan tersebut namun tetap hadir dengan proposal berkaitan keselamatan wanita

2. There will be lots to do away from the games
Peminat bola sepak dari luar negara bukan sahaja boleh datang menyaksikan World Cup sahaja, tapi boleh juga menikmati pakej-pakej lain yang disediakan bukan sahaja oleh Qatar tetapi juga negara-negara jiran Arab yang lain dengan pembinaan jalan yang dibina bernilai 3 billion dollar merentasi beberapa negara jiran tersebut

3. Teams and supporters will be safe from terrorist attacks
Wikileaks pernah mendakwa bahawa Qatar adalah wilayah keganasan yang bersama Russia adalah negara yang mempunyai kedudukan keselamatan terendah di dunia. World Cup sememangnya melibatkan penyertaan banyak negara-negara Barat terutamanya nmusuh Negara Arab seperti Amerika Syarikat, Australia, England (jika mereka layak) yang tidak lari dari Alkohol dan Israel, sehingga terdapat majalah Jihad di Internet yang menyatakan bahawa event ini adalah target yang sangat sesuai sanagat untuk berjihad <-- Takut tak?? LOL

"Adversity Cause Some Men To Break,
Others To Break Records"
Covini is a name which is not well known in automotive circles outside of Italy - that's almost certain to change thanks to the small company's latest design - a six wheel sports car along similar engineering lines to the famous Tyrrell P34 Formula One racing car of the mid-seventies.

The six wheeled design offers many advantages over a conventional design as it offers more traction for cornering and braking and minimises the risks associated with tyre punctures and aquaplaning. The P34 experienced a host of development issues which technology has since solved. Covini's car certainly looks the business - in the go-department it is powered by an Audi 4.2 litre V8 motor (283.4 kw / 380 bhp @ 6400 rpm) which powers it to a top speed of 300 kmh.

Seorang wartawan lelaki telah di tugaskan membuat liputan dan siasatan mengenai aktiviti kelab gay di Bukit Bintang. Dia di kehendaki menyamar sebagai gay. Wartawan itu dengan senang hati menggayakan pakaian dan cara seorang gay. Setelah seminggu mempelajari tingkahlaku dan gaya seorang gay, akhirnya pada malam minggu itu wartawan itu masuk ke kelab gay tersebut.

Wartawan itu dipasang dengan microphone n camera bersaiz kecil bagi merakam segala aksi dan aktiviti di kelab gay tersebut. Setelah masuk wartawan itu terus menuju ke bar utama dan memesan segelas bir. Dia hanya duduk sambil memerhatikan gelagat-gelagat gay di kelab tersebut. Ada yang menari dan ada yang duduk sambil berpeluk-pelukan sesama lelaki. Wartawan itu merasa geli geleman melihat tingkahlaku mereka.

"Hai...sorang ke bro", tiba-tiba wartawan itu di sapa.

"A'ah, saya tunggu kawan saya. Tak sampai-sampai lagi ni", kata wartawan itu separuh menjerit kerana kebingitan muzik di kelab itu.

Tiba-tiba wartawan itu berasa sakit perut. Rasa seperti ingin kentut. "Muzik tengah kuat ni bolehlah aku kentut ni", bisik hati wartawan itu.

Wartawan itu pun melepaskan kentutnya. Satu demi satu. Berturut-turutan. Tiba-tiba muzik rancak itu berhenti kerana DJ nya ingin menukar ke lagu perlahan. Sementara proses pertukaran lagu itu kentut wartawan itu telah di dengari oleh gay-gay yg berhampiran dengan wartawan itu.

Once upon a time, a man in a hot air balloon realized that he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted. "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied. "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 50 and 51degrees north latitude and between 114 and 115 degrees west longitude."

"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.

"I am," replied the woman. "How did you know?"
