US astronaut Neil Armstrong dead at 82


Washington: The first human to set foot on the moon, renowned US astronaut Neil Armstrong, has died following complications from cardiovascular surgery. He was 82.

Armstrong underwent cardiac bypass surgery earlier this month after doctors  found blockages in his coronary arteries.
Praising Armstrong as a “reluctant American hero,” his family said it was  heartbroken and noted that the space pioneer had “served his nation proudly, as  a navy fighter pilot, test pilot, and astronaut.”   
“While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his  remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around  the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore  and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves,”  it added.
Armstrong and fellow Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin landed on the  moon’s desolate surface on July 20, 1969, before the eyes of hundreds of  millions of awed television viewers worldwide.
His first words upon stepping on the lunar surface have since been etched  in history: “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”    The 500 million people who watched the grainy black and white broadcast  breathed a sigh of relief when Armstrong told mission control the module had  landed safely, saying: “Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed.” 
But the lunar pioneer, who was decorated by 17 countries and received a  slew of US honors, was never comfortable with his worldwide fame, shying away  from the limelight.
Armstrong even stopped signing memorabilia after learning his autographs  were being sold at exorbitant prices. John Glenn, the first American to to orbit Earth and the third in space,  recalled Armstrong’s legendary humility.
“He didn’t feel that he should be out huckstering himself,” the former Ohio  senator told CNN.
“He was a humble person, and that’s the way he remained after  his lunar flight, as well as before.”    A “deeply saddened” President Barack Obama on Saturday hailed Armstrong as “the greatest of American heroes — not just of his time, but of all time.”    His “legacy will endure — sparked by a man who taught us the enormous  power of one small step,” said Obama, who was just under eight years old at the  time of the historic Apollo 11 mission.
Republican House Speaker John Boehner remembered Armstrong for inspiring  generations with his “monumental feat.”    “A true hero has returned to the heavens to which he once flew,” Boehner  said. “Ohio has lost one of her proudest sons. Humanity has gained a legend.”   
Aldrin said he had hoped that he, Armstrong and Michael Collins would have  met up in 2019 for celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. But  the occasion will not come to pass.
“Whenever I look at the moon, it reminds me of the moment over four decades  ago when I realized that even though we were farther away from Earth than two  humans had ever been, we were not alone,” Aldrin said  Collins, in a statement released by a NASA spokesman, said of Armstrong:
“He was the best, and I will miss him terribly.”  Born in Wapakoneta, Ohio on August 5, 1930, Armstrong had an early  fascination with aircraft and worked at a nearby airport when he was a teenager.
He took flying lessons at the age of 15 and received his pilot’s license on  his 16th birthday.

A US Navy aviator, he flew 78 missions in the Korean War. Armstrong joined NASA’s predecessor agency, the National Advisory Committee  for Aeronautics, in 1955.
As a research pilot at NASA’s Flight Research Center in Edwards,  California, he flew on many pioneering high-speed aircraft, eventually flying  over 200 different models, including helicopters, gliders, jets and rockets.
He reached astronaut status in 1962, and was assigned as command pilot for  the Gemini 8 mission, during which he performed the first successful docking of  two vehicles in space.
After retiring from NASA in 1971, Armstrong taught aerospace engineering at  the University of Cincinnati for nearly a decade and served on the boards of  several companies, including Lear Jet, United Airlines and Marathon Oil.
Armstrong also served as deputy associate administrator for aeronautics at  NASA headquarters, coordinating and managing the space agency’s aeronautics  research and technology work.
His family said they had a simple request to people in memory of  Armstrong’s life.
“Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next  time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you,  think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink,” it said. -- AFP

Oppan Gangnam Style

By Cho Jae-hyon

Psy has his own style. As his name implies, which he says comes from the word psycho, the singer-songwriter is anything but typical.

With a career of more than a decade, the 36-year-old hip-hop singer has an element that separates him from other K-pop singers: fun. The seasoned musician pokes fun at the norms of society with sarcastic lyrics and humorous dance moves.

For many K-pop fans overseas, Psy was nobody until mid-July when he released the stunning “Gangnam Style” music video and dance track. Although he has built up a solid fan base at home, he had been relatively unknown overseas.

He is different from young, cute K-pop idols. He is neither strikingly good-looking nor does he have chiseled muscles appealing to young females.

However, “Gangnam Style” has catapulted him to international fame overnight. He has hit the jackpot with the title song of his sixth album which has gone viral internationally.

It became popular overseas after some renowned musicians and celebrities mentioned the song on Twitter and blogs, triggering a rush of hits on YouTube and resulting in greater exposure via some international media.

The hilarious video blows away the solemnity weighing on Korean society, with the horse-riding dance move and the rap on “Oppan Gangnam Style” making viewers giggle.

Although he projects a playful image, Psy’s approach toward music is meticulous. What makes this song and dance remarkable is its originality.

Psy has experienced ups and downs over the last 12 years. He was convicted of smoking marijuana in the early 2000s. He had the biggest crisis in his music career in 2007 when he was accused of having not properly fulfilled his alternative military service.

In Korea, a man could work for a designated tech start-up company for about three years as an alternative military service. Between January 2003 and November 2005, Psy worked at a software company. 

But an MBC TV investigative journal reported that he did not fulfill the alternative military duty by habitually failing to report for work at the company.

Following several months of investigation by the prosecution, Psy was ordered by the conscription authorities to serve the full two-year national service again in July 2007. He filed an administrative lawsuit against the decision but lost in the first trial.

Amid worsening public sentiment, he decided to do his military service again. When he joined the Army, he, at the age of 30, had to leave behind his wife and twin baby daughters and completed his duty in July 2009. 

Since then, he has actively engaged in performing live, steadily rebuilding a fan base. He became completely free from the specter of military obligation that haunted him for years.

A typical clubber who is on the floor late into the night, Psy has a passion for dancing and playing, which is what made him what he is today. As in the song’s lyrics, he is the type who plays when it’s time to play. 

Psy says he would make the same choice about joining the military if he had to choose again. After serving, he started regaining popularity. With the success of “Gangnam Style,” he is now in his heyday.

This sudden limelight is encouraging. In a series of recent interviews with the press, Psy has said he doesn’t know why the song is drawing such interest overseas. 

His popularity underscores the fact that the potential of “hallyu,” or the Korean cultural wave, is greater than we thought. It needs to be a lot more diverse than it is now.

Psy’s popularity overseas was unexpected but it’s not surprising either. He has gone though all the hardships and emerged as a seasoned singer. Behind his comical dance and rap are his striving and passion for music in his own style. The popularity he is enjoying is the result of effort.

Not only handsome or cute K-pop boy bands or girl groups but chubby guys like Psy should take center stage to broaden and sustain the Korean wave.

Although he was born and raised in Gangnam, the affluent district in southern Seoul, Psy has an image that is opposite to the generally-known “Gangnam style,” which usually refers to luxurious, sophisticated, yuppie trends.

While Psy is not your typical K-pop star, he is now emerging as one of the most popular hallyu stars and it’s the singer’s own style that is driving his popularity.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Are Engaged!



After dating for just over a year, Theroux's rep confirmed to People that the pair plan to walk down the aisle: "Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage."
Aniston's rep also confirmed to The Huffington Post that she is, in fact, engaged.
The couple began dating in May 2011, before going on to co-star in the 2012 comedy, "Wanderlust." Since then, Aniston and Theroux have been almost inseparable --they've even begun to look like one another as their relationship has evolved.
Earlier this month, the pair were spotted vacationing in Hawaii, just days before Theroux, 41, would propose on August 10.
Aniston, 43, was previously married to Brad Pitt. This will be Theroux's first marriage.
News of Aniston and Theroux's engagement comes on the heels of Friday's speculation that her ex and Angelina Jolie would be getting married this weekend at the couple's French chateau, but almost as quickly as they started, the rumors were laid to rest.

P/S: So happy for you Jennifer Aniston! :)

Pandelela Rinong wins Bronze for Malaysia

By: S. Ramaguru

LONDON: Pandelela Rinong has created Malaysian diving history. The 19-year-old from Sarawak won a bronze medal in the women’s 10m individual platform event at the Aquatics Centre early Friday.


It was Malaysia's first-ever Olympics medal in a sport other than badminton, besides making Pandelela the first Malaysian woman to win an Olympics medal.



She garnered a total of 359.20 points to finish behind China's Chen Ruolin, who won the gold on 422.30 points while Brittany Broben from Australia won the silver on 366.50 points.

Although diving had promised a medal here, not many had given the team a chance, especially since they had failed in their last six events.

But Pandelela delivered. Her feat also helped the national contingent match Malaysia’s best placing in the Olympics - the silver and bronze won at the Atlanta Games in 1996.




Then, the badminton doubles pairing of Cheah Soon Kit and Yap Kim Hock won the silver while Rashid Sidek won the bronze in the men's singles.

Pandelela said she hoped her achievement in London 2012 would inspire others to take up diving as a competitive event.

"I am so happy with winning this medal. It is something that I had only dreamt off and now diving can look at it as a turning point.




"I feel that a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders and we can now look forward to better times," she said.

Pandelela started off the final poorly, getting only 58.50 points for her first dive to be placed in 10th spot.

Up to the third dive, she was still in 10th place but her final two dives were well-received by the judges and netted 81.60 and 76.80 points respectively.

"After the first dive, I told myself not to be worried and to stay calm. At that point I was not thinking of a medal at all. I just wanted to do my best.

"I am glad that my routines worked and some of the others registered slightly lower points," she said.

Yesterday, I followed the live feed of Pandelela during her semi final rounds in Diving - 10 m Platform. I was happy when I knew that she's through to the finals!

This morning, I woke up and saw in Twitter that she won a BRONZE medal! Unbelievable! 19 years old and a bronze in the Olympics? Believe it or not. *standing ovation*

I would like to congratulate both Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Pandelela Rinong for winning medals for our country. Both of you are the true hero and heroin of Malaysia.

A Masterpiece by Yvonne Lim




My family have and will always be a sporting family. No, it doesn't mean I'm good at it although my dad and my brothers are very good at it, it just means that my whole family bond over sports. We would watch all things sports including the ones we've never heard of like curling when the winter olympics are on or even rowing if that's the only thing on tv.

However, tonight, the whole of Malaysia was united for 79 minutes when Datuk Lee Chong Wei stepped on the courts. He carried the weight of 28 million Malaysian on his shoulders. 28 million people who are aware that this might be the best chance we have to obtain the elusive GOLD MEDAL. SO MUCH HOPE AND DREAMS ON those muscular shoulders. To prove it, look at all the headlines of today's paper!! Huge picture of him and Lin Dan.

For 79 minutes, both players shown heart, strength, dreams, guts and just crazy skills!! Point for point, no one was willing to budge. Luck played a part as well as the ability to handle pressure. Yet, at the end of the day, despite the allegiance, credit has to be given to the winner. To the one who handled the big points better. If I was there, I would have given both players a huge standing ovation.

But the harsh reality of life is this, WINNERS are ALWAYS remembered and the ones who LOSE are ALWAYS forgotten. 10 to 15 years in the future, no one would remember how well LCW battled. The only thing that would be brought up is the fact that he lost. Not HOW he lost it. It's harsh but the world we live in is one of statistics. The one where the end matters and the means doesn't. He is probably going to be one of Malaysian's best National Hero and spokesperson but statistics will say that he has not won any BIG Major titles like the World Championship or the Olympics. 

It got me thinking about God. About how I'm so blessed god sees the journey/means and not the end. He doesn't punish me when I sin but he sees me trying to be sin free. He sees the humanity in me, the flaws and the sins and still chooses to love me like a sinless lamb. He chose to send His son so that you and I can have direct contact with Him. How blessed do I feel that my life and salvation is not determined by the number of my sins or the good deeds I've done but by me wanting to know, love and serve Him! 

What's the point of this note you would ask? Well, for one, I am still very sad about the lost. Not because he lost, but because he thought he disappointed the whole of Malaysia by losing and even tweeted an APOLOGY. I remember the first time I saw LCW played. He was still in his late teens and my dad commented "This guy would never win because he has no confidence". At that time, I guess LCW was still in the process of discovering himself that he portrayed a 'kampung' boy who show very little self confidence, looking down at the floor even as he walked into the stadium. 

But it wasn't self confidence that he was lacking, it was humilty that he was portraying. Never one to be cocky or arrogant, LCW is one who exudes confidence from within. Silent yet potent, he never allows for others be it the media or the public to define the person that he is. Now, I don't know him personally and all these are just obeservations of someone who have watched him really grow into the person that he is today. More like a perception from a supporter and fellow Malaysian.

Yet, often times we are too quick too judge whenever we see the word lose. Even worse when it's against China. Perceptions and stigma such as he's uncapable or scared just pops up. When he's withdraws because of injury, people start saying it's all a gimmick because he's afraid he'll lose. When he does win the occasional one or two, all he gets is a few congratulations and a lot of LUCKY sentiments. But never once have I read about him imploding to the media. Never once shown his frustration and blame others for anything. It's as though we pile the hopes on him, if he win, we congratulate and want to affiliate ourself with him. If he lose, we show him our disappointment. After he lost this olympics finals, he tweeted 2 words. 'I'm SORRY' 

I don't know about you but reading his apology spurred me to write this. It spurred me to rethink how I used to be so quick to criticize without realizing that I probably won't be able to acheive 5% of his successes. Of how a hero like him should not and DOES NOT have to feel like he has disappointed ME! What I saw in him was God. I saw a selfless man who wanted to win not for himself but for the rest of the country. I've often told others that I'm proud to be Sabahan but have yet found a good reason to be proud of being Malaysian. Tonight, I saw the reason for it. Because of you, the way you played, the person you are, I'm proud to be Malaysian Datuk Lee Chong Wei. I saw God in you!

P.S. None of the remarks I made is meant to judge others. It's just something I've observed and experience. I'm the first to admit, I was also one of those who have made such statements in the past.

P.S. 2 I wonder how China trains their athletes to handle pressure so well. I wonder if the play each sports with a gun to their head so they learn to execute EVERYTHING so wonderfully and close to perfect!!

P.S 3 Sabahan would enjoy this.. I thought it was hilarious!!

Datuk Lee Chong Wei vs. Lin Dan




This post, is from Lin Dan's Fan Club in China. It reads:

"Thank you very much, Lee Chong Wei, Thank you for being such a noble and worthy opponent, and thank you for 10 years of company - without Lee Chong Wei's worthiness, there will not be any Lin Dan's worthiness; without Lee Chong Wei's persistence and perseverance, there will not be any progression for Lin Dan. Lee Chong Wei missed his first Gold Medal, but he didn't fail. We felt for his cries. When we cheer for Lin Dan's victory, please also remember Lee Chong Wei. You both are the best."
